(Studio) Religious revival among American youth growing, spreads to other ntns.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Taize, France) Surplus Army tents in French community filled with young people from all over world. Interdenominational services held 3 times a day. 70 Taize brothers, some Catholic, some Protestant, some E. Orthodox, have been here since 1940's. Young people plan world-wide council of youth at Taize in 1974. Youth think world is not a nice place and established church is not much better. They want church with no wealth or power, which responds to needs of people. Prior Roger sympathizes with youth. He founded brotherhood on prayer, poverty, and help. He helped Jews escape from Nazis. World-wide, youth-oriented, ecumenical religious movement may be underway.
