Is it possible for you to give me information on the following?
1812 19th Street, N.W.
Washington 9, D.C.
Scientology is the study of life
increases potential ability,
mental and spiritual
Personal Effeciency [sic] Foundation
Hubbard Guidance Center
Academy of Scientology
The Founding Church of Scientology
The above was on a card given out by people at this address and in going
to this address, they would not give out any information at all. In fact,
when they are asked questions, they hush up, so to speak.
As young people further their education, their parents talk with my
husband, since he is a minister and pastor, and they want to know where
their children can get the best training in the category of their
Families and different individuals have tried in vain to find out in
detail as to what type of training is being given to a person taking
"SCIENTOLOGY". There are so many indications that this is a cover-up for
something that is undesirable. There should not be any secret as to their
course they offer. If it is on the up and up, we should know what it
contributes to a better life.
My husband and I cannot find any _"one"_ individual who can get
information as to the type of training a student receives and the purpose
in the course. I do know they have a representative to make personal
contact, then the student goes there, and then goes to England.
I do hope and trust you can find out the truth, because it may save other
young people from being misguided.
