If you think you have problems with Scientology in England, you should see what's happening in the States. Here, they pass out their leaflets on the street corners of some of the most pukka neighbourhoods, urging innocent bystanders to try out Scientology. Those who have accepted the invitation have found themselves in one of their many dingy headquarters, listening to a dull lecture on Scientology, followed by a film of equal merit on its leader, L. Ron Hubbard. Those who didn't ...

There, according to the Los Angeles Times, world receipts rose to $140,000 weekly in 1968. —– In New ...

An attempt by a section of the Scientologists to muzzle the News of the World has failed.

A meeting of six people in a Noble Park house is hardly a dramatic resurgence. But the cult gained one objective — publicity. The cult invited police and State Cabinet Ministers to the meeting. None attended. Scientology is banned in Victoria, and the State Government has made it clear it will act to prevent any revival of the cult. The practice of Scientology is banned under the Psychological Practices Act, and the Crown Law Department, following Sunday's meeting, is considering whether ...
