Last year reporter Alan Levy was hired by
Life magazine to enroll in the beginning course of Scientology, "the worId's fastest growing religion." Like Zen Buddhism and other Eastern belief systems, Scientology claims to free the mind, elevating the person to the status of a "superman," with fantastic mental powers, concentration, poise, humor, reflexes. In practice it more resembles a kind of "Flash Gordon" psycho-analysis than conventional religion. His reporter's objectivity became undermined; Levy found himself sucked deeper and deeper into ...

If you think you have problems with Scientology in England, you should see what's happening in the States. 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 ...

How profitable Scientology has become is one of the organization's most closely guarded secrets, but estimates of the personal worth of founder L. Ron Hubbard have ranged up to $7 million. 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 ...

Offices of the American Psychiatric Association are located in the seventeen hundred block of Eighteenth Street Northwest, Washington, D.C. The Founding Church of Scientology is at 1812 Nineteenth Street, one block farther out. Figuratively speaking, the world's largest mental-health organization is considerably farther out than that.Even its members will concede that it is far out. After a hurried interview with Miss Anne Ursprung, top executive of the Founding Church, I managed an extension of time by driving her and fellow staff ...

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 ...
