FROM THE FILES OF THE FBI 235
Jan. 18, 1971
Mr. J. Edgar Hoover
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Did you know that there is an organization that thinks it is above the
laws of this country--and all other nations? The head of it lives on a
ship in the Mediterranean Sea, as he is afraid to go ashore.
The organization is "SCIENTOLOGY" and the head of it is L. Ron Hubbard.
They proceed to break any nation's laws as they see fit. Their
headquarters in the U.S. is:
Church of Scientology
2723 West Temple St.
Los Angeles, Cal. 90026
(1) They censor their members' mail. If they choose, they destroy mail to
a boy or girl working there. This is interfering with the United States
(2) They do not pay taxes to any country. They take in millions of
dollars (tax free) and Ron Hubbard stashes it away in Swiss Banks.
(3) They keep boys out of the draft (religion again).
(4)They brainwash these boys and girls until they have no Patriotism for
America, nor a belief in God.
My son had 2 1/2 at the University of [BLACKED OUT] at [BLACKED OUT]
majoring in Business Ad. when got into Scientology--and brainwashed. He
quit school and in now in L.A. If we write to him and say anything
against Scientology, he never receives our letter.
They work these boys about 12 hours a day and seven days a week. I think
they pay him $9.50 per week and board and room. By the way, I do not
believe they hold out for Withholding and Social Security taxes--that
means another law broken.
My son inherited some money from his Grandmother--he wants to give it all
to Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard.
How is it th[?] this one organization is [?]ove the laws of the United
States of America, and everyone else must obey them?
This outfit should be investigated thoroughly and completely and exposed
and imprisoned or run completely out of the country.
L. Ron Hubbard was run out of Australia, and even England suggested he
Please investigate this outfit--they are ruining the lives of thousands of
fine young Americans (boys and girls). Scientology should be destroyed
Very truly yours,
