In the 1990s, Major Ed Dames offers a course in remote viewing to the public for $4,500.00 a person. He is the CIA Officer who was involved in the CIA Remote Viewing Program at SRI in the 1970's.

From this - it would appear the US Intelligence community has become more relaxed about people practicing Remote Viewing - at least they appear to be willing for people to have a watered down version of it.

  In his last few years money was siphoned from the Church to Hubbard. The IRS criminal investigators came on the scene too late. With Hubbard's death the investigation was abandoned, but money continued to gush into Author Services Inc., and from thence to the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST). CST records presented in a tax case in Washington, DC, show that CST has assets of over $500 million.

On 28 January 1990, The New Mexican reported that CST had dug a 350-foot tunnel into a mesa to store Hubbard's writings, which are being preserved at enormous expense using state of the art techniques. CST intend this storage facility to survive even nuclear war. There are also storage facilities near Los Angeles and in northern California.

He had spent $500,000.00 and was broke, therefore he could not buy more auditing to handle the problem.

The information was used to show his friends and business associates so they would disconnect from him, thus destroying his business. On two occasions, staff members and his friends were told to write KRs on him and given the data to put in the reports. The reports were secret and false and robotically said what they were told to say in them, omitting any reference in the reports that they had been provided with the false data. Over the next several years he spends $120,000.00 just in the effort to clear his name of the false accusations made against him.

Hubbard hot-author status called illusion

In 1981, St. Martin's Press was offered a sure thing.

L. Ron Hubbard, the pulp writer turned religious leader, had written his first science-fiction novel in more than 30 years. If St. Martin's published it, Hubbard aides promised the firm, subsidiary organizations of Hubbard's Church of Scientology would buy at least 15,000 copies.

Battlefield Earth, priced at $24.95, was released the next year in hardcover, rare for a science-fiction title. Despite mixed reviews, the book quickly sold 120,000 copies -- enough to place it on The New York Times best-seller list.

Five, six, seven people at a time would come in, with cash in hand, buying the book, said Dave Dutton, of Dutton's Books, a group of four stores in the Los Angeles area. They'd blindly ask for the book. They would buy two or three copies at a time with $50 bills. I had the suspicion that there was something not quite right about it.

Dutton only suspected what others claim to know for fact. The book's sudden success, say dozens of former Scientologists and bookdealers, was the result of a church plan to create the illusion of L. Ron Hubbard as a hot author. The church, they say, sustains the myth -- 15 New York Times best sellers and counting -- through dubious marketing tactics and the manipulation of an obedient flock of consumers.

They send people into bookstores. You get a phone call: Your job is to go down to the B. Dalton. Take as many people as you need to buy up all the books so they'll have to reorder.'

We were told to go out and buy a bunch of copies of Battlefield Earth' so it would become a best seller, said Dr. Frank Gerbode, the former head of the Scientology mission in Palo Alto.

The book was published in August 1982. The church, Haber said, transferred funds from its international reserves to buy 25,000 copies of Battlefield Earth from St. Martin's. Bridge Publications and its European affiliate, New Era Publications, were then ordered to replace the money.

St. Martin's senior editor Michael Denneny confirmed that a deal was struck. He recalled, however, that Author Services guaranteed to buy 15,000 to 20,000 copies. But when Battlefield Earth was published, he said, Author Services bought more copies than originally promised.

Some Scientologists noticed that these tactics had a familiar ring to them. Hana Whitfield, a personal aide to Hubbard from 1967 to 1977, said the Scientology leader routinely issued project orders in the 1970s to buy Dianetics.
Church members were given lump sums of up to $50,000, Whitfield said, and sent to book stores.

The Church of Scientology today is run by a high-school dropout who grew up at the knee of the late L. Ron Hubbard and wields power with the iron-fisted approach of his mentor.

At 30, David Miscavige is chairman of the board of an organization that sits atop the bureaucratic labyrinth known as the Church of Scientology.

This organization, the Religious Technology Center, owns the trademarks that Scientology churches need to operate, including the words Scientology and Dianetics.

The Religious Technology Center licenses the churches to use the trademarks and can revoke permission if a church fails to perform properly. Therein rests much, but not all, of Miscavige's power.

High-ranking former Scientologists describe him as a ruthless infighter with a volatile temper. They say he speaks in a gritty street parlance, punctuated with expletives.

One recalled the time that Miscavige became enraged with the performances of Scientology staffers on a church record album. He propped its cover against an embankment outside his Riverside County, office and shot it repeatedly with a .45-caliber pistol, said the associate.

At the age of 14, with the blessing of his Scientologist parents, Miscavige joined a cadre of trusted youngsters called the Commodore's messengers. In the beginning, they merely ran Hubbard's errands. But as they emerged from adolescence, Hubbard broadened their influence over even the highest-level church executives.

In time, the messengers controlled the communication lines to and from Hubbard -- a critical component of power in an organization that revered him as almost saintly. When messengers spoke, they did so with Hubbard's authority. Bad-mouthing a messenger, Hubbard said, was tantamount to personally challenging him.

When Hubbard went into hiding in 1980, he left behind but did not forget Miscavige, one of his favorites.

It was Miscavige's job to ensure that Hubbard's orders, secretly relayed to him, were followed by church executives. In effect, Miscavige became the sole link between church leaders and Hubbard.

Miscavige also was put in charge of a profit-making firm called Author Services Inc., which was established in 1981 to manage Hubbard's literary and financial affairs. The job further enhanced Miscavige's reputation as having Hubbard's confidence.

Among other things, he spearheaded a purge in 1981 of upper-echelon Scientology executives accused of subverting Hubbard's teachings and plotting to seize control of the organization.

He also cracked down on owners of Scientology franchises, or missions, who pay the church roughly 10% of their gross income.

At a 1982 church conference, Miscavige accused the mission owners of cheating the mother church. He and his aides announced that finance police would audit the missions to ensure that the church was getting its fair share of money. And the audits would cost the missions $15,000 a day.

In taking command of Scientology after Hubbard's death, Miscavige survived a challenge from two other Hubbard lieutenants once thought to be his likely successors: Pat and Anne Broeker, who had been in hiding with Hubbard.

The power struggle was so intense at one point that even Hubbard's final Scientology writings, revered as sacred scriptures, became the object of a tug of war between Miscavige and Pat Broeker, according to Vicki Aznaran, a top Scientology executive who left the church in 1987 after a falling out. Aznaran said Broeker threatened to use the writings to start his own church.

Miscavige today has achieved exalted status within the Scientology movement.

He has personal aides who walk his dog, shine his shoes and run his errands, according to Aznaran, a top Scientology executive who left the church in 1987 after a falling-out.


The Criminal Mind mechanism has never failed when applied to Miscavige. Every single time he accuses others of something - it has shown a light into his mind on what he has been thinking and doing. Notice above that he accuses others of subverting Hubbard's teachings and plotting to seize Scientology - exactly what he is guilty of!

It began with the title of a fairy tale -- Snow White.

Snow White began in 1973 as an effort by Scientology through Freedom of Information proceedings to purge government files of what Hubbard thought was false information being circulated worldwide to discredit him and the church. But the operation soon mushroomed into a massive criminal conspiracy, executed by the church's legal and investigative arm, the Guardian Office.

Under the direction of Hubbard's wife, Mary Sue, the Guardian Office hatched one scheme after another to discredit and unnerve Scientology's foes across the country. Guardian Office members were trained to lie, or in their words, to outflow false data effectively. They compiled enemy lists and subjected those on the lists to smear campaigns and dirty tricks.

Their targets were in the government, the press, the medical profession, wherever a potential threat surfaced.

The Guardian Office saved the worst for author Paulette Cooper of New York City, whose scathing 1972 book, The Scandal of Scientology, pushed her to the top of the church's roster of enemies.

Among other things, Cooper was framed on criminal charges by Guardian Office members, who obtained stationery she had touched and then used it to forge bomb threats to the church in her name.

You're like the Nazis or the Arabs -- I'll bomb you, I'll kill you! warned one of the rambling letters.

The church reported the threat to the FBI and directed its agents to Cooper, whose fingerprints matched those on the letter. Cooper was indicted by a grand jury not only for the bomb threats, but for lying under oath about her innocence.

Two years later, the author's reputation and psyche in tatters, prosecutors dismissed the charges after she had spent nearly $20,000 in legal fees to defend herself and $6,000 on psychiatric treatment.

It seemed that no plan against perceived enemies was too ambitious or daring.

Two Scientologists used fake IRS credentials to gain access to government agencies and then photocopied documents related to the church. Their conspiracy was exposed when one of the suspects, after 11 months on the lam, became worried about his plight and confessed to authorities, prompting the FBI to launch one of the biggest raids in its history.

They carted off eavesdropping equipment, burglar tools and 48,000 documents detailing countless operations against "enemies" in public and private life.

In the end, Hubbard's wife and the others were found guilty of charges of conspiracy and burglary. The grand jury named Hubbard as an unindicted co-conspirator; the seized Guardian Office files did not directly link him to the crimes and he professed ignorance of them.

In a memorandum urging stiff sentences for the Scientologists, federal prosecutors wrote: The tools of their trade were miniature transmitters, lock picks, secret codes, forged credentials and any other device they found necessary to carry out their conspiratorial schemes.

The 11 defendants were ordered to serve five years in federal prison.

Boston attorney Earle C. Cooley, Scientology's national trial counsel, said the present church management does not condone the criminal activities of the old Guardian Office.

The Church of Scientology hates "squirrels."

That is the scornful word L. Ron Hubbard used to describe non-church members who offer his teachings, sometimes at cut-rate prices. Most are ex-Scientologists who say they believe in Hubbard's gospel but left the church because its hierarchy was too oppressive.

Hubbard contended that only church members are qualified to administer his self- improvement-type courses. Outsiders, he said, inevitably misapply the teachings, wreaking spiritual harm on their subjects.

But those who have launched independent Scientology-style centers say Hubbard concocted this as an excuse to eliminate competition so he could charge exorbitant prices for his courses.

As far back as 1965, Hubbard demonstrated his disdain for breakaway groups, ordering his followers to tear up the meetings of one such organization and harass these persons in any possible way. The intolerance still exists.

In 1988, the California Assn. of Dianetic Auditors -- the oldest Scientology splinter group in existence -- said it uncovered a scheme by more than 100 Scientologists to secretly infiltrate the association and seize control of its board of directors.

The association's then-vice president, Jana Moreillon, said she discovered the infiltration after scanning some Scientology publications. There, she found the names of many of her group's newest members listed among Scientologists who had just completed church training.

Moreillon said the association eventually purged or denied membership to 116 suspected Scientologists.

In recent years, a shadowy group of church members dubbed the "Minutemen" crashed meetings of independent Scientologists. They heckled speakers, screamed obscenities and threw eggs. Los Angeles police officers had to be summoned by the owner of a Chinatown restaurant to evict militant Scientologists who disrupted a fund-raising dinner held there by breakaway church members.

The church has denied any direct involvement in the raids. But a former top Scientology official said in a recent court declaration that the harassment campaign was ordered by church executives.


Creed of the Church:

We of the Church believe that -

All men have inalienable rights to their own religious practices and their performance

All men have inalienable rights to conceive, choose, assist or support their own organizations, churches and governments

And that no agency less than God has the power to suspend or set aside these rights, overtly or covertly.

Furthermore the US Constitution guarantees freedom of religion and assembly.

Herein we have the foundation upon which all church abuses sit. The effort to maintain a monopoly by eliminating competition is the source of all church abuses.

In the Fair Game PL Ron stated that those declared by the church had no rights.

Well, he is an agency less than God, and per the Creed of the Church, he has no such power to declare that other people have lost their rights. He also cannot suspend the US Constitution either morally or legally.


People have a right, which Hubbard cannot take away from them, to practice the religion

of their choice. If they choose to practice Scientology outside of the boundaries of the formal church - that is their right to do so.

They can also mix their own ideas into Scientology if they want to and practice that.

They are doing nothing morally or legally wrong by doing so. If they want to chant a mantra in the middle of an auditing session - they have a right to do that. And, they have a right to do it without interference from the church or anyone else.

KSW is no excuse. KSW only applies INSIDE the church - not outside of it. And using force to try to get KSW applied by people outside of the formal church - is fascism and thought police actions.

In light of the fact that LRH was getting church money - that establishes one wrong- headed reason for wanting to maintain a monopoly by eliminating competition.

But - there is another, even worse, wrong-headed reason - CONTROL over people.

CONTROL over people is the Global Enslaver's agenda - it is not the agenda of an organization that is supposed to be making FREE BEINGS. Free thinking and action should be encouraged by a group that stands for human & spiritual FREEDOM.

Also, the PURPOSE of Clearing the planet is SENIOR to policy of making money.

Splinter groups should be viewed as ASSISTANCE to planet Clearing, etc.

Monopoly has two evil purposes - money is senior to purpose & control over people.

If one has a monopoly on auditing - on the bridge - one can then CONTROL others.

This also establishes the real reason for confidentiality of upper level materials.

CONTROL is the reason for confidentiality and eligibility for the OT levels -
Unless people do what you say - you deny them eligibility for the secret OT levels.


By keeping materials secret and by having no competitor -

people can be controlled because they have no where else to go to get the bridge.

Thus - they have to do what you tell them to do - they have no choice.

Thus - all manner of abuses are tolerated, such as high prices, because people have

nowhere else to go to get the auditing they want.

If there is a competitor - then no one has to put up with any abuses from the church - because they can easily walk across the street to the church's competitor and get the bridge there.

Thus - the real way to have LASTING Reform - is breaking the church's monopoly.

The church will then have to clean up its act and treat people right - or lose them to the competitor. And, RTC would lose its ELIGIBILITY LEVER it holds over people.

Omitted Application of the Creed of the Church -
Incorrectly Included hypocrisy, not practicing what one preaches -
Omitted Application of the US Constitution -
Incorrectly Included effort to have a monopoly by eliminating competitors-
Altered Importance - money is not senior to the Purpose of Planet Clearing -
Added Inapplicable control over people - into a group who's product is Free Beings -
False Solution - NOT-ISNESS (force) in an effort to maintain a monopoly -

"Never treat a war like a skirmish. Treat all skirmishes like wars."
-- L. Ron Hubbard

The Church of Scientology does not turn the other cheek. Ministers mingle with private detectives. "Sacred scriptures" counsel the virtues of combativeness. Consider the passage that a prominent Scientology minister selected from the religion's scriptures, authored by the late L. Ron Hubbard, to inspire the faithful during a gala church event.

"People attack Scientology," the minister quoted Hubbard as saying. "I never forget it; always even the score." The crowd cheered.

Scientology seems committed not only to fighting back, but to chilling potential opposition. For years, the church has been accused of employing psychological warfare, dirty tricks and harassment-by-lawsuit to silence its adversaries.

The church has spent millions to investigate and sue writers, government officials, disaffected ex-members and others loosely defined as "enemies."

Teams of private detectives have been dispatched to the far corners of the world to spy on critics and rummage through their personal lives -- and trash cans -- for information to discredit them.

During one investigation, headed by a former Los Angeles police sergeant, the church paid tens of thousands of dollars to reputed organized crime figures and con men for information linking a leading church opponent to a crime that it turned out he did not commit.

Early last year, an American Scientologist was arrested in Spain for possessing dossiers containing confidential information on a member of Parliament and a Madrid judge who oversaw a fraud and tax evasion probe of the church. The dossiers included personal bank records and family photographs, according to press accounts.

Scientology spokesmen insist that the organization is doing nothing illegal or unethical, and is merely exercising its constitutional rights with vigor.

Underlying the church's aggressive response to criticism is a belief that anyone who attacks Scientology is a criminal of some sort. "We do not find critics of Scientology who do not have criminal pasts," Hubbard wrote back in 1967.

When Scientology takes the offensive, L. Ron Hubbard's writings provide the inspiration. Here is a sampling of what Hubbard wrote:

"The purpose of the (lawsuit) is to harass and discourage rather than win."

"If attacked on some vulnerable point by anyone or anything or any organization, always find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace. . . Don't ever defend. Always attack."

"NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology. Only agree to an investigation of the attackers. . . . Start feeding lurid, blood, sex crime, actual evidence on the attack to the press. Don't ever tamely submit to an investigation of us. Make it rough, rough on attackers all the way."

Obedience to these rules is not discretionary. They are scripture and, as such, have guided a succession of church leaders in their responses to perceived attacks.
Ironically, Hubbard's doctrinal dictums have often served only to escalate conflicts and reinforce the cultish image the church has been trying to shake.

Now, Scientology spokesmen say, attorneys are hired to handle conflicts with church adversaries to ensure that history does not repeat itself.

But some former Scientologists contend that the private detectives have simply replaced church members as agents of intimidation. The detectives are especially valued because they insulate the church from deceptive and potentially embarrassing investigative tactics that the church in fact endorses, according to this view.

One of the first private detectives hired by the church was Richard Bast of Washington, D.C.

In 1980, he investigated the sex life of U.S. District Judge James Richey, who was presiding over the criminal trial of Hubbard's wife and the 10 other Scientologists. Richey had issued rulings unfavorable to them.

Bast's investigators found a prostitute at the Brentwood Holiday Inn who claimed that Richey had purchased her services while staying at the hotel during trips to Los Angeles. Bast's men gave her a lie detector test and videotaped her account.

That and other information obtained by Bast's investigators was leaked to columnist Jack Anderson, and appeared in newspapers across the country. Soon after, Richey resigned from the case, citing health reasons.

In 1982, Bast surfaced again, this time in Clearwater, Fla., where the church's secretive methods of operating had stirred community anxiety.

Bast's detectives, posing as emissaries of a wealthy European industrialist, lured some of the community's most prominent businessmen aboard a luxurious yacht. Their pitch: the industrialist wanted to invest $100 million in Clearwater's decaying downtown.

But there was a catch, recalled developer Alan Bomstein, one of the businessmen being wooed. The emissaries said their boss was dismayed by the conflict between Clearwater and Scientology, and wanted the businessmen to help quash a public inquiry into the church's activities.

When the businessmen refused, Bomstein said, the emissaries vanished. Two years later, Bast revealed the deception in a court declaration. He said the undercover operation was necessary to learn whether Clearwater's elite were conspiring to run the church out of town.

More recently, Scientology investigations have been run by former Los Angeles Police Department sergeant Eugene Ingram, who was fired by the department in 1981 for allegedly running a house of prostitution and alerting a drug dealer of a planned raid. (In a later jury trial, Ingram was acquitted of all criminal charges.)

When he needs help, Ingram has sometimes turned to former LAPD colleagues.

Ex-officer Al Bei, for example, played a key role in a 1984 investigation of David Mayo, an influential Scientology defector who had opened a rival church near Santa Barbara. Scientologists believed Mayo was using stolen Hubbard teachings.

Bei and other investigators questioned local businessmen, handing out business cards that said, "Special Agent, Task Force on White Collar Crime."

Their questions suggested -- falsely -- that Mayo was linked to international terrorism and drug smuggling, according to court records. At a local bank, Bei tried without success to obtain Mayo's banking records and implied that Mayo was engaged in money laundering, an executive of the bank said.

The investigators rented an office directly above Mayo's facility and leaned from the windows to photograph everyone who entered.

Mayo eventually obtained a court order barring Ingram Investigations and church members from going near Mayo or his facility. The judge said the investigation amounted to "harassment."

On another occasion, Bei surfaced on a quiet residential street in Burbank, where he questioned neighbors of two highly critical former Scientologists, Fred and Valerie Stansfield. The Stansfields had established a competing center in their home to provide Scientology courses.

Los Angeles police officer Philip Rodriguez is another who has assisted Ingram in Scientology investigations.

In late 1984, he provided Ingram with a letter on plain stationery saying Ingram was authorized to covertly videotape a hostile former member suspected by church authorities of plotting illegal acts against the church.

Although the letter was written without official police department approval, Rodriguez's action lent an air of legitimacy to the investigation. In fact, when church officials disclosed its results, they described the operation as "LAPD sanctioned" -- a characterization that Police Chief Daryl F. Gates angrily disputed.

Rodriguez was suspended for six months for his role in the affair.

And when the clandestine videotapes were introduced in an Oregon court to discredit testimony by the former member, the presiding judge said: I think they are devastating against the church. . . . It (the investigation) borders on entrapment more than it does on anything else.

Another former LAPD officer, Charles Stapleton, worked part time for Ingram while teaching law at Los Angeles City College.

Stapleton said he bailed out after Ingram asked him to tap telephones.

Who's going to know? he quoted Ingram as saying.

I will know, Stapleton said he replied.

I was told that if I didn't want to do it, he knew somebody who would, Stapleton said, adding that he did not know whether any telephones had, in fact, been monitored.

Ingram denied ever asking Stapleton to tap telephones.

Last year, Ingram and his colleagues surfaced in the small town of Newkirk, Okla., to investigate city officials and the local newspaper publisher. The publisher has been crusading against a controversial Scientology-backed drug treatment program called Narconon.

After arriving in town, Ingram tracked down the mayor's 12-year-old son at the local public library, handed him a business card and told the boy to have his father call, Lobsinger said. It was just a subtle bit of intimidation, he said. It certainly did not do the mother much good. She was very unnerved.

Scientology critics contend that one church writing, above all others, has guided the organization and its operatives when they fight back. It is called the Fair Game Law.

Written by Hubbard in the mid-1960s, it states that anyone who impedes Scientology is "fair game" and can "be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."

Church spokesmen maintain that Hubbard rescinded the policy three years after it was written because its meaning had been twisted. What Hubbard actually meant, according to the spokesmen, was that Scientology will not protect ex-members from people in the outside world who try to trick, sue or destroy them.

But various judges and juries have concluded that while the actual labeling of persons as "fair game" was abandoned, the harassment continued unabated.

For example, a Los Angeles jury in 1986 said that Scientologists had employed fair game tactics against disaffected member Larry Wollersheim, driving him to the brink of financial and mental collapse. He was awarded $30 million. In July, the state Court of Appeal reduced the amount to $2.5 million but refused to overturn the case.

Wrote Justice Earl Johnson Jr.: "Scientology leaders made the deliberate decision to ruin Wollersheim economically and possibly psychologically. . . . Such conduct is too outrageous to be protected under the Constitution and too unworthy to be privileged under the law of torts."

In a recent lawsuit, former Scientology attorney Joseph Yanny alleged that the church and its agents had implemented or plotted a broad array of fair-game measures against him and other critics, including intensive surveillance and dirty tricks.

Earlier this year, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury awarded Yanny $154,000 in legal fees that he said the church had refused to pay.

Numerous other church detractors have said in court documents and interviews that they, too, were victims of fair game tactics even after the policy supposedly was abandoned.

John G. Clark, an assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, said he once criticized the church during testimony before the Vermont legislature. Scientology agents retaliated, Clark alleged in a 1985 lawsuit, by trying to destroy his reputation and career.

He said in the lawsuit that they filed groundless complaints against him with government agencies, posed as clients to infiltrate his office, dug through his trash, implied that he slept with female patients and offered a $25,000 reward for information that would put him in jail.

My sin, Clark said in an interview, was publicly saying this is a dangerous and harmful cult. They did a good job of showing I'm right.

In 1988, the church paid Clark an undisclosed sum to drop his lawsuit. In exchange for the money, Clark agreed never again to publicly criticize Scientology.

On the opposite coast, psychiatrist Louis (Jolly) West, who formerly directed UCLA's Neuropsychiatric Institute, said he also has felt the wrath of Scientology.

West, an expert on thought control techniques, said his problems began in 1980 after he published a psychiatric textbook that called Scientology a cult.

West said Scientology attempted to get him fired by writing letters to university officials suggesting that he is a CIA-backed fascist who has advocated genocide and castration of minorities to curb crime.

He said Scientologists once managed to get inside a downtown Los Angeles banquet room before guests arrived for a dinner celebrating the Neuropsychiatric Institute's 25th anniversary. On each plate, West said, was placed an obscenely vicious diatribe against him and the institute -- neatly tied with a pink ribbon.

So consumed are some Scientologists by their zeal to punish foes that they have violated the confidentiality of one of the religion's most sacred practices, according to a number of former members.

These former members accuse others in the church of culling confessional folders for information that can be used to embarrass, discredit or blackmail hostile defectors -- a practice once called repugnant and outrageous by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge. Some of these former members say they themselves took part in the practice.

The confidential folders contain the parishioners' most intimate secrets, disclosed during one-on-one counseling sessions that are supposed to help devotees unburden their spirits. The church retains the folders even after a member leaves.

Last year, former church attorney Yanny said in a sworn declaration that he was fed information from confessional folders to help him question former members during pretrial proceedings. Yanny said he complained but was informed by two Scientology executives that it was standard practice.

Church executives have steadfastly denied that the confidentiality of the folders has been breached.

Often, those who buck the church say their lives are suddenly troubled by unexplained and untraceable events, ranging from hang-up telephone calls to the mysterious deaths of pets.

Los Angeles attorney Leta Schlosser, for one, said someone developed an unusual interest in her car trunk while she was part of the legal team in the Wollersheim suit against Scientology. She said it was broken into at least seven times.

She said her co-counsel, O'Reilly, discovered a tape recorder, wired to his telephone line, hidden beneath some bushes outside his home.

Then there is the British author, Russell Miller. After his biography of Hubbard was published, an anonymous caller to police implicated him in the unsolved axe-slaying of a South London private eye.

Miller was interrogated by two detectives, who concluded that he was innocent. Det. Sgt. Malcolm Davidson of Scotland Yard told the Los Angeles Times that the caller caused us to waste a lot of time investigating and caused Mr. Miller some embarrassment.

There is no evidence that ties the church to any of these incidents, and Scientology officials deny involvement in clandestine harassment or illegal activities. They suggest that church foes may themselves be responsible as part of an effort to discredit Scientology.

In 1987, they elevated to high doctrine a warning he wrote two decades ago in a Scientology newspaper, addressed to people who seek to stop us.

If you oppose Scientology we promptly look up -- and will find and expose -- your crimes, he wrote. If you leave us alone we will leave you alone. It's very simple. Even a fool can grasp that.

And don't underrate our ability to carry it out. . . . Those who try to make life difficult for us are at once at risk.

The principal of a Sherman Oaks elementary school has canceled an assembly by an environmental group because of fears that parents would object to the organization's connection with the Church of Scientology.

The Sherman Oaks School's 927 students were scheduled to watch skits and hear songs Monday performed by Cry Out, an environmental group affiliated with Scientology.

Snipper said Friday she decided to drop the event, pending review by officials of the Los Angeles Unified School District.

At least one parent raised questions about the group's affiliation with Scientology last week, Snipper said. Although she did not believe the presentation would be harmful to children, Snipper said she feared more parents would object once they found out about the program's connection with the controversial religion.

Materials used by Cry Out were prepared by Author Services Inc., the literary agency for Hubbard, the late founder of Scientology, according to an investigation earlier this year by The Times.

There is absolutely no connection with Scientology, Dolan said.

Members of the Sherman Oaks Parent Assn., a school booster club, spent $600 to purchase 1,000 "Cry Out" booklets to distribute to students after Monday's assembly. The 48-page color booklet explains the benefits of recycling and other forms of conservation.

Jay Levy, co-chairman of the parents group, said he was aware of the link between Cry Out and Scientology but supported the assembly because the program itself is great.

I looked at the booklet and there is no mention of Scientology, Levy said.

The only thing that bothers me is if it is related to Scientology, why didn't they come out and say it? he said.

Sherman Oaks parent Judy London said she approached school officials with the idea of bringing the Cry Out presentation to the school after picking up one of the group's booklets at the Los Angeles Zoo earlier this year.

I went to the address they gave me, and it said Author Services Inc. on the building but inside you walk into the L. Ron Hubbard Gallery, London said. I asked about the relation and they said there was no relation at all.
