[ADDRESS BLOCK BLACKED OUT]
Dear [BLACKED OUT]
I have some good news for you, as well as for the entire western
United States. Dr. L. Ron Hubbard has decided to have the Academy
of Scientology teach the Hubbard Certified Auditor Course here. You
may now obtain your HCA certification either here or in Washington,
Our first HCA course will start Monday, July 14th, at 9:30 AM.
You may register for it starting July 9th. Final registration is
Saturday July 12th, at 9:30 AM. Preliminary course tests are July
12, 9:30 AM.
The fee for the course is $500.00 (subject to increase Aug.
1958), and it will last ten weeks. If you have had an HAS course
given by an approved agency since August 1957, you will be given an
allowance on your course fees, and your course will be eight weeks
long. Do bring your Receipts and or Validated Certificate at time
If you want a night HCA course; register for it, and when we
have a suffici[__] registration, we will start one.
We must have 1000 auditors in this area by the end of this, year
for a government project. Come in now, and get your certification,
so that we can put you to work in the very near future.
New HCA courses will start each Monday morning, with
registration and testing on the preceding Saturday; but, don't
delay - we want and need you now- we don't want to be caught short
on the greatest opportunity we have yet had.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.
My best regards,
[signed] Julia Salmen
Dr. Julia Lewis Salmen
