It was a far-out book even for a science-fiction writer, but "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health" was a runaway best seller within months of its publication in 1950. An obscure author named Lafayette Ron Hubbard took only 60 days to write it; the learned journals of psychology, psychiatry and medicine all ignored it, and after a few months of heavy sales the book itself began to fade from the best-selling charts. But "Dianetics" had planted the seed for the ...

The cult of scientology won unwelcome publicity for itself last week when the Government banned foreigners coming to this country specifically to study it or to work at its centres. For a belief or pursuit which offers alleged improvements to adherents' personalities and which holds to the maxim, "if it's not written, it's not true," the organisers are remarkably chary of publicity and free with threats of writs for libel. It has recently opened three offices in Edinburgh, one of which ...

The main Edinburgh practitioner, it seems, is a Mr Ernest Saren, and at the appointments he produces a personality "graph" showing the questionnaire results on ten "personality dimensions" such as happy-depressed and capable-inhibited. The final column on the capacity analysis chart gives an I.Q. figure. Saren's qualifications for discussing people's problems on the basis of this questionnaire, according to a H.A.P.I. spokesman, are scientology qualifications only. One of those tested in the H.A.P.I. building this week, a 19-year-old apprentice who had ...

The interest of last night's recital by the Cairo-born pianist, Mario Feninger — sponsored by the Hubbard Academy of Personal Independence at the Freemasons' Hall, Edinburgh—centred principally on the presence of some rare pieces by Busoni, and secondarily on the effect which, the pianist claims, the practice of "Scientology" has had on his keyboard technique. Without having heard any other scientology-inspired pianists, and thus having no standards other than the normal ones by which to measure him, one can only report ...

The "vessel" is actually a converted hostel—Suttie's Hotel, 20 South Bridge—bought from the Y.M.C.A. In May, after redecoration and recarpeting by scientologists themselves, it became the Hubbard College for Personal Independence and the world centre for administration of, and instruction in, scientology's advanced courses.
