RE: Berry's World
Dear Sandy, Brian, Donna and Gary,
Attached is Op Funny Bone. It was done off of
a recent LRH order to myself, so needless to say
I want the actions done fast,
What is needed is for each AG I to determine for
their own area if Berry's World cartoon is carried.
From that point then the Op can be sent to them.
When they are determining if the cartoon is carried
ensure that they have enough data to work with as
they will not all need the Op right away (unless we
find out that the cartoon is carried in their area).
So please get started on this right away and add it
to your battle plan this week to get the orgs going
on finding the circulation.
I suggest telex lines for this initial cycle.

RE: OP FUNNY BONE
SITUATION. Ron wanted the attached cartoonist disenfranchised.
Data: The attached Op is a simple Op very similar to the successful
Kensolving Op that I mocked that cost him alot of his papers.
It's simple to do and should be fun for the AG I's in outter areas.
Solution: Impliment the attached OP.
This is OK R

1. Do a suitable guize telephone call to the NEA - the
Newspaper Enterprise Association - their headquarters are
in Cleveland and NYC. Contact their L.A. office if they
have one, if not get hold of the others. Find out what
areas of the US they circulate JB's cartoon. You can be
the enterprising amateur cartoonist who is trying to get
some info on the subject and your stuff is somewhat like
JB's. Or you could be a freelancer who is doing an article
on syndicated business; or you can be a student who is
doing a paper on the same subject. See what buttons you
can get on this call concerning cartoonist.
"gosh, I bet some of these cartoonists are pretty tempermental
you know like artists. Do you ever have any problems with
them -- I mean like JB - etc. Boy I sure appreciate your

PROJECT: FUNNY BONE TARGETS FOR CONCERNED AG I's
a) Find all the publications you can in your area that print
Berry's World - see attached cartoon. Make a list of these.
b) Take one of the above publications and have a trusted FSM
look through as many as possible "back" issues to obtain
other examples of "Berry's World".
c) As the tone of these is 1.1, there should be many
buttons of persons that are being pressed. e.g. a
joke on Poles: a joke on Catholics: a joke on Jews:
a joke on any ethnic groups: make a list of this person
types or ethnics.
d) Recuirt several FSM's that can write letters.
e) Have the FSM's write to leaders of the ethnic groups
of whatever turns up, and complain about the insulting
cartoon that you just came across. Suggest that the
group write letters to the publication in question and
demand that the publication drop that cartoon. And to say
that their members will drop the publication if they don't
f) AG I, should read all letters going out to ensure that
no mention of Scientology is made. The letters should
not be mailed all from one place, and they should all be
sent a good distance from any Org or Mission. All the
addresses (return) should be different and spread around
g) do b) to g) to all the publications discovered in target
h) As each new cartoon comes out for all the publications in
target "a", have several FSM's write letters to the
Editor (different types) complaining about whatever can
be complained about in the cartoon e.g. shouldn't make fun
about Firemen: shouldn't ridicule the poor etc. Some
of these letters should state that the complainer is
dropping the publication and many of his "Firemen friends/
"poor friends" are doing the same. AG I, should read
all letters before going out. Return addresses should be
away from the Org or Missions and not near to each other.
i) Continue this above action with 30 or 40 FSM's, each
week changing the FSM's, or each day/month as the
publications come out. Send up to US weekly reports
on the results of these actions.
