FROM THE FILES OF THE FBI #138
Easter Sunday 19[?] [probably 1956]
DIRECTOR J. EDGAR HOOVER
FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
DEAR MR. HOOVER:
Enclosed please find one (1) Brain-washing manuel [sic] of the Russian
I understand you and your agents have access to it already but I want to
3-31-56 I phoned an agent of yours by the name of [BLACKED OUT] and
reported that I am investigating by joining "The Hubbard Association of
Scientologists, International". They were formally [sic] known as
Dianeticists until the Psychopoliticians laughed them underground. I know
very little about them so far because I have only time to attend two short
meetings. There must be less than a dozen in all Houston. So far I think
they are O.K. They are supposed to do good, thats [sic] their creed.
They say that if you learn Scientology, you cannot be brain-washed, other
than with drugs or surgery.
It seams [sic] the Psychopoliticians have been at work since the Czar.
Tocombat [sic] them it will take plans of great bounds.A [sic] slip-up
could cause an atomic war. Read page 64 where I point out _any_ failure.
Onereason [sic] I say ANY is because some fanatic or would be hero could
come here with out official orders and drop fission. Another reason I say
Any---read that 4th to the last Para. on pg. 64. They dont [sic] expect
to fail because they have such a powerful holding here-----then a 100 or
so and their women will head for their under mountain castles and let the
bombs fall ;hoping to survive it out as a last resort.
The mix-ups in our good old U.S.A. are clearer now to me. No one knows
the seriousness better than you.
Our dope, missleading [sic] news, passing of H.R. 6376 by voice vote,
Supreme Court close decisions conflicting with Congresses; your hands
being tied many ways.
I am wishing for a plan where by you will get some of the current 5
Billion---- I say you need it here now more than any body else in the
world, to spot every Psychopolitician, in colleges, mental inst. Nat. and
Fed. gov. ,hospitals, and health clubs, etc. And smash them for good.
Of course it will shake up the public a little while -- But if the U.S.
knows and the world knows that very great prosperity will come in a smooth
manner after they are smashed ,they will love it and Thank God, more than
May God grant you power to put the cards in the President's Lap.
I am trying to get influential people [missing word?] absorbe [sic] the
Brain-washing manuel [sic], but it very slow. The Masons have glimpse of
it,so do the Christian Scientists.
My Methodist preacher [BLACKED OUT] is alarming on [?]eing up and many
people as he can at the [BLACKED OUT] I would appreciate it if you would
give us a clue as to whether it is too soon to start blasting the
Psychopoliticians. I dont [sic] want [BLACKED OUT] future damages,
because he is gifted.
I would like to see one of your agents join the Scientologists here as
abuffer [sic] to conclusions. It's deep but it looks good so far.
Very truly yours,
[SIGNATURE BLACKED OUT]
[handwritten below signature:] The Manuel [sic] should come back to me
when you need it not. [BLACKED OUT]
