Dear Mr. Hoover:
I have received a request from a member of the Arizona State Legislature
for information about the background of the organization known as the
Church of Scientology, whose local address is listed as East Roosevelt
Street, Phoenix, Arizona.
I am further informed that an organization with the above name was said to
be listed in the local Phoenix, Arizona, newspaper as being connected with
communism. I would be obliged to have whatever information your office
may have about this organization and its activities.
Yours very sincerely,
P.S. Please address reply to me; sending me original and one copy.
