DONOVAN BESS Mr. Bess is on the staff of the San Francisco Chronicle. San Francisco This is the year of Apollo 11. It is also the year in which that psychological sophisticate, Richard Alpert, came back from his guru in India to reap a big following of inner-space explorers with his story of spiritual conversion. It is a lime of burgeoning meditation societies on the college campuses, and of passionate rebellion against the amorality of our technology. Thus it ...

Author(s): Donovan Bess

Today and tonight hundreds — perhaps thousands — of Californians will sit down in pairs and stare at one another. One of them will give the other commands such as "Tell me something you wouldn't mind forgetting." The one who is commanded will hold two tin cans attached by wires to an E-meter, a device that measures electrical resistance in the body. The commander will watch a needle on the device's circuit board in the belief that it measures emotional charge. ...

"Perverted" cult thriving in Sydney — Sunday Mirror (Australia)
Type: Press

Push for recruits L. Ron Hubbard, chief of the discredited Scientology cult, is pushing as hard as ever for recruits in Sydney. So far, no action has been taken to suppress the cult's activities in New South Wales. Scientology was banned in Victoria in 1965 after a royal commissioner reported that its practice was a medical, moral and social threat to the community. The inquiry, which lasted 17 months, found the techniques and principles of Scientology "perverted, debased and harmful." It ...

His name is John McMaster. Once he was a mess like the rest of us. Now he's a "clear", one of the saints of a new cult called Scientology — without a single "engram" left to bug him. SOMETHING VERY ODD is going on in Toronto. People are leaving the country, changing their occupations, giving up their children, leaving their husbands, wives, or lovers, changing their whole lives. All in the name of something called Scientology. The whole thing got started ...
