<i> From Times wire service</i> s

The last of five cloistered Roman Catholic nuns has left her monastery after spending nine months barricaded in the infirmary to protest liberal changes in the monastic life style including the approval of television, candy and popular music.

Sister Teresita, who with four others locked herself in the room on Oct. 4, left the Carmelite monastery Thursday, leaving no word on her destination. One departed in March complaining of poor health and the three others left last Friday.
