breeze ... if you can maintain the pace... From the single issue, you won't find it an easy code to live by either. Looking forward to the next dark-of-the-moon." -- R. G. Osborne, Los Angeles, Calif.

80% of the 100 doctors attending the classes (Concept Therapy) at Kansas City purchased Electropsychometers unless already owned by them; mostly E-AR-400 probe type.

"An agreement was initialed at Kansas City covering the purchase of $3,-150,000 worth of instruments during the next 10-1/2 year period. A charter has been issued to the doctors for the granting of a diploma in psychiatry, or rather electropsychometric psychiatry; requires 200 hours' training, can be issued both to doctors and to lay-analysts; first charter issued by state of Texas; will be followed up in as many more states as necessary. Nothing in the electropsychometric course is similar to or copied from 'scientology'. It is, rather, modern psychiatry.

"Attendees at classes or conventions, etc., are free to bring their own tape recorders and may record everything freely and reuse it, replay it, without royalty or copyright charges of any kind." -- Volney Mathison, Los Angeles, Calif.

"I think maybe all you need is a little fresh air and sunshine. Even very funny funny people should take a breather occasionally." -- M. F. Hundley, Oklahoma City, Okla.

"Thank you very much for The Aberree, which I read and passed it to our group members. We wish to have the preceding numbers, too, if you please.

"For the present we have no money to send you, so feel free to face our need, or not. Through our group scientology is gaining a good foothold in the Middle East. We published 4 long articles in our Armenian paper, and translated many articles by R. Hubbard which we are going to publish in the same paper. We are not getting money for our 'service' from anyone. Of course, we need money, at least to have the Aberree and scientology literature, which we need to serve." -- H. Saraydarian, Amman, Jordan.

"I would like you to print the full address of each person in the letters column because I know many of them and would like to send them a letter." -- Duane Leazenby, Sacramento, Calif.

"The Aberree interests me very much; seems much better than most in this field from America. Keep the fun in it -- it is the spark of Life!

"A very good selection of letters. Was much interested in Dr. Addison O'Neill's comments about the suggestion content of scientology processing. You cannot get away from the fact that the pre-clear is constantly told what to do -- and in the highly successful cases things happen because of the high degree of affinity between P/C and auditor -- which after all, is the condition necessary for various kinds of therapy, including hypnotism." -- A. L. Rogers, Walsall, England.

"I would like to say in passing that I find it most refreshing that in the Aberree, when you reach the end of a page, you carry straight on to the next page. You know as well as I do that this is the exception rather than the rule. Not only in magazines and bulletins to do with Scientology & Dianetics, but in the world of magazines in general.

"I find it MADDENING and one can easily miss the rest of what one is reading, or miss something else, as one has jumped it. Mind you, I expect that they would say that they could process it out of me, but I would rather process THEIR aberration out of THEM instead!" -- Geoffrey A. Barker, Abbots Morton, England.

You Can't Upset "Local Talent"

Tulsa, spurred by the Medical Association, has been having a bit of legal hassle with Adolphus Hohensee, nutritionist, whose lectures on how many ills foods and right-living can cure "without doping, drugging, and needless surgery" have been dragging in huge crowds.

"He is trying to take a lot of money out of Tulsa with his phony claims of curing disease," the doctors warned. And these experts on the subject of "phony claims for curing disease" got the cops to agree with them that Hohensee was almost as reprehensible a character as someone who tries to cheat a parking meter -- therefore, must be curbed.

We've been reading "U.S. Public Health Service Publication No. 221", lent us by Arden Bergquist of Wichita, on "Proceedings of the Third Research Conference on Psychotherapy". It's a record of psychiatrists and neurosurgeons asking questions, but none having acceptable answers.

Some of the questions: Do neurosurgeons know what they're doing? What results do they expect from their operations? How much alcohol can be injected into the brain without destroying it? How many spoonfuls of brain can be removed before the patient decides life isn't worth the effort?

Brains can be scooped out in the name of scientific research, but selling vitamins to a stranger will get you in trouble with the home talent crowd.
