Now [Nancy] Cartwright is appearing on television in another role: a 30-minute television program that the Church of Scientology hopes will expose more people to [L. Ron] Hubbard's message and increase the number of people seeking Scientology counseling. Now, next to those telephone-order woks and real-estate courses comes Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, the 1950 self-help classic from Hubbard, whose writings and research are the gospel of Scientology. The group has its spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. Scientology is never ...

After dabbling... I still say stay away AT OUR monthly meeting held on Monday I asked how many of those who signed the letter from the clergy of East Grinstead (report and Letters, May 7) had visited Saint Hill. Four of us had. Our knowledge of Scientology is not confined to anti-Scientology literature, as Barbara Bradley seems to imply. Speaking for myself, I visited Saint Hill in September 1985. I have dipped into dianetics, which I admit did not interest me ...

And now, the next Walt Disney Studios— the Church of Scientology!

It all began last July, when Future Films, a new, eccentric studio, began running ads in Variety and the Hollywood Reporter touting its revolutionary ideas. No one knew what to make of it all.

Instead, you must sign up for an hour-and-a-half guided tour. Possibly they don't trust the unassisted viewer to fully reap the museum's rewards, though it might also be a matter of security.

On the day last June when his parents drove to New York City to claim his body, they were nearly catatonic with grief. The young Russian-studies scholar had jumped from a 10th-floor window of the Milford Plaza Hotel and bounced off the hood of a stretch limousine. When the police arrived, his fingers were still clutching $171 in ...

Flag Service Organization — The legal name of Scientology's Clearwater operation, which serves as the sect's spiritual headquarters.
