    Background: At "Paso Por Aqui", a club in Hampstead, London, "the biggest Beatnik gathering ever seen in Britain" pursed its noisy way, Aug 26-27.

    The Hampstead party - organised by the English and Foreign Speaking Students Association - confirmed the belief of average, uninitiated Englishmen that Beatniks have beards, long-hair, bare feet, a taste of jazz and odd attire, and a marked distaste for soap, water, and normal conventions.

    But - to use "Beat" language - the party wasn't the "rave" expected; most dancers went home soon after 1 a.m.
