Here, they pass out their leaflets on the street corners of some of the most pukka neighbourhoods, urging innocent bystanders to try out Scientology. Those who have accepted the invitation have found themselves in one of their many dingy headquarters, listening to a dull lecture on Scientology, followed by a film of equal merit on its leader, L. Ron Hubbard. Those who didn't ...

In 1963 the Internal Revenue Service claimed the church earned more than $750,000 in the United States from 1955 through 1959, the year Hubbard moved international headquarters from Washington, D.C., to England. There, according to the Los Angeles Times, world receipts rose to $140,000 weekly in 1968. —– In New ...

Today and tonight hundreds — perhaps thousands — of Californians will sit down in pairs and stare at one another. One of them will give the other commands such as "Tell me something you wouldn't mind forgetting." The one who is commanded will hold two tin cans attached by wires to an E-meter, a device that measures electrical resistance in the body. The commander will watch a needle on the device's circuit board in the belief that it measures emotional charge. ...

Evening Independent (Florida)
In that fine journal published by the American Medical Association, "Today's Health," for December, 1968, there is a
splendid article by Ralph Lee Smith on Scientology
, which he calls a "menace to mental health." "Couched in [pseudoscientific] terms and rites, this dangerous cult claims to help mentally or emotionally disturbed persons — for sizable fees. Scientology has grown into a very profitable worldwide enterprise . . . and a serious threat to health." Anyone who wants to learn something about ...

When ministers of the Founding Church of Scientology told a Falls Church, Virginia couple that could teach the couple's defective son to talk and raise his IQ at same time, the man and wife, understandably in search of a miracle, willingly paid—in advance—the sum of $3,000 as a "contribution for spiritual guidance." The husband cashed a life insurance policy, sold some bonds, added the proceeds of a small bequest and "scraped around in various places." And then his son Paul's "processing" ...
