Memorandum for Mr. DeLoach

Bufiles reveal we have not conducted an investigation concerning the Academy of Scientology or Hubbard; however, we have had numerous inquiries regarding Hubbard and various organizations which he has headed, and we have furnished in the past public source data to former Senator Homer Ferguson and Senator Styles Bridges. This material also has been disseminated in London, England, where Hubbard has an office, through our Legal Attache.


That the attached letter be sent to Anchorage authorizing that office to furnish the information contained therein either to [BLACKED OUT] or one of his superior officers on a confidential basis.
