PUBLIC NOTICE — I, L. RON HUBBARD, of Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex, having reviewed the damage being done in our society with nuclear physics and psychiatry by persons calling themselves "Doctor", do hereby resign in protest my university degree as a doctor of philosophy (Ph.D.), anticipating an early public outcry against anyone called "Doctor"; and although not in anyway connected with bombs or "psychiatric treatment" or treatment of the sick, and interested only and always in philosophy and the total freedom of the human spirit, I wish no association of any kind with these persons and do so publicly declare and request any friends and the public not to refer to me in any way with this title. — (signed) L. Ron Hubbard.
