All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

ELIZABETH — The Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation, Inc., will go on trial in part one of Union County District Court February 19 to answer charges by the State Board of Medical Examiners that it operated a medical school without a license.
L. Ron Hubbard, author of "Dianetics," a book that explains his "new science of the mind," set up headquarters of the foundation at 275 Morris avenue last July. At that time, Hubbard announced his organization would train "auditors" to administer therapeutic treatment for mental anxieties and illnesses using the tenets of dianetics.
Trial date was set yesterday by John. L. Hughes, presiding judge of the District Court, after the state board filed the charge Wednesday. Under a state statute, trial on charges of violation of the board's rules is a quasi-criminal action which must be heard in District Court. Conviction carries a penalty of $500.
The foundation immediately gave notice of its intention to contest the complaint. The group will be represented by George K. Meier of Montclair.
Hubbard, now at work on a sequel to his controversial book, asserted in July he did not expect great opposition to the foundation's work from physicians and psychiatrists, since physicians were among his staff of trained "auditors." The law, he said, requires that physicians be included in the staff of any organization treating mental diseases.
