Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex


Gen Non-


     Over the past 15 years we have seen a lot of groups splinter
off from Scientology and beat the drum for some off beat use of the
technology. We call them " squirrels" because they are so nutty.
They come and they go. We're still here and will continue to be.

     A vast body of technology such as Dianetics and Scientology
can give birth to a thousand "new developments" and never notice
it. There are close to a half a billion words of research data in the
Archives at Saint Hill, enough to start a thousand fads, any part of

     The latest squirrels are a group headed by an ex-employee
in England who was sacked for homosexuality and theft. Promptly
joined by an American who was once deported for 2nd Dynamic
reasons and who ran off from his wife and children to join the band,
this group is having a rough time of it.

     Internal dissension is what tears these splinter groups apart.
Formed by people whose overt acts against Scientology prevent
case gain, they rapidly rip one another to pieces.

     "Ron Howes" was an early example. Joined by undesirables
from the Wichita Dianetic Foundation in 1951 they had a brief flurry
and then his companions so involved Howes that he was soon in jail
and today is reported as a Catholic priest!
The rest of the group
dispersed, never to be heard from again.

     There was once an "E-Therapy" taken from the "Throg-Magog"
example in Dianetics Evolution of a Science, released by a long gone
fellow Kitselman. They had people mock up a god to tell them what
to do, so avoided auditing and spun themselves in. This is the nearest
thing we've had to "Amprinistics".

     The keynote of such "developments" is how to avoid auditing
and prevent revealing overts.

     Old Joe Winter was another example. And there are many,
many more. All gone now, dead or in jail or vanished.

     The latest splinter is no exception.  It is using Concept Therapy
and Rising Scale Processing with "dichotomies" from 1951 Dianetics,
fancied up and advertised as "senior Scientology". Some day somebody
will revive the engram running as done in 1950 as the "latest develop-
ment". These old processes have a history of being grabbed and altered.
A Chiropractic group in 1953 really "went to town" with Concept
Therapy. It is quite a good process. But limited. It would be about
Grade 1 in modern Scientology, not used because it starts out fine
but dead ends. You can find the right processes for it in old books
and bulletins.  It could make a low level Release if expertly run on
a Mark V meter but never a Clear. And to self audit it would be fatal.

     We don't object to Dianetics or Scientology being used. We
prefer it to have its right name. But we like to have it in clean hands.
There's been too much betrayal in this universe already and for

fellows whose records include homosexuality and theft to start up
a fuss with 14 year old technology is a bit thick.

     They are quite violent on the subject of ethics as you ordinarily
expect a criminal to be and are savage about organizations, having
stolen money and lists from ours. They are being careful not to
attack me publicly in the hopes people will think them noble and
inspired. They're inspired all right — by the "buck". But we wish
them no bad luck. We don't have to. It's punishment enough just
to be themselves and live with what they are.

     It's amusing how the group acts within itself. When Horner
arrived in England he was supposed to be met with a big cheque
so he could lecture all over the world. Of course he got no cheque.
This particular auditor has run off to every splinter group that was
ever formed and when they collapse, comes back head hanging,
case unchanged and fortunes in rags and ruin. He's been doing it
for 15 years. A sort of Jonah! His case doesn't change by the way
because no HGC auditor has ever been able to get him into an
auditing chair! His dream is total gain without processing. For
that avoids all his withholds.

     Soon they'll have one another's throats cut or in jail and that
will be that.

     For a splinter group to try to start up just as Scientology is
restoring all past releases and has a large number going Clear at
Saint Hill is a tough break for them. We will of course have to
refuse them and anyone connected with them any of the materials
for Classes and Grades V, VI, VII and VIII in order to prevent
their use against people by suppressives. This effectively bars the
way to their personal progress as policy on them states that regard-
less of amnesty or amends they may never again be trained. And
the chances of such finding their own way are zero. A rather bad
fate for the sake of a few quick "bucks" or pounds. For we could
never trust them again with preclear's cases.

     If you meet anyone going off to this group, list them with
your Ethics Officer.
They will never be given any upper level
materials or training.

     We don't really wish them any harm. We only hope they don't
hurt too many when they crash.

     Then I suppose we'll have to pick up the pieces.

     We've been doing it for 15 years.

     "O Man thou art a foolish beast. The way thou runnest about
after gew-gaws, no wonder it took so long for somebody to find the


     Amprinistics — Culled from 1951 Dianetics "dichotomies"
pretends to be a Senior Scientology". In actual fact it is a low level
self-audit calculated to spin people in with end words. As a suppres-
sive action it seeks to make a virtue out of not being audited thus
barring the road.
It was probably dreamed up by Horner, not Harry

     Harry Thompson — At the bottom of the "Death Lessons" press
scandal was Harry Thompson. He has several wives and many children
and is sought by the police for abandonment.
He has attacked HCO


HCO Exec Ltr 27.9.65                - 3 -

Secretaries.  He pretended to the press to be an "American doctor".
He has no certificates or training. He is the subject of an Ethics
Order as a Suppressive Person.

     Edgar Watson — Was an early subject of Ethics. When
investigated for no case gain it turned out he had used a job at Saint
Hill to embezzle money and used auditing to obtain subjects to
satisfy homosexual appetites. He was quietly dismissed to save us
the embarrassment of his being arrested for both crimes but was
severely warned. He is a barber by profession, is poorly educated,
has a permanent leg injury which does not heal. He is the subject
of numerous preclear complaints about his squirrel auditing and
the HCO Sec London traced all UK enturbulation to his group in
1963. He owes us a large amount of money.

     Jack Horner — This ex-auditor has been a runaway to every
splinter group ever formed. When they crash he comes back and
begs forgiveness. He is heavily suppressive of pcs and has used
any confidential data that came his way illegally. He has been the
subject of a Comm Ev for abuse of materials and when saved by an
amnesty promptly committed other offenses. He is violent on the
subject of being audited and refused free processing in two HGCs.
He has been psychotic on the subject of organizations and has done
everything possible to tear them down. He has used auditing to turn
pcs against orgs and in his connection with "Amprinistics" is merely
furthering his own hate lines of auditing and organizations.  In 1960
he was instrumental in ruining the life of Nibs Hubbard, with the
help of Nina West by setting the boy against an organization and
then getting him arrested in the Middle West. Smooth and glib,
many people have been deluded into helping him. To him can be
traced lies about how much private auditors should make, luring
auditors from orgs and giving them loses when they don't reap
fortunes. He has deserted several women, leaving them with children
and was the subject of deportation from England for violating a girl
who was a ward of a court. He owes the organization money.

Forecast — The group will grab any money in sight and skip after
doing orgs as much damage as possible and in a few months will
never be heard from again, following the course of all such groups.

Treatment — They are each fair game, can be sued or harassed.
Horner can be barred out of any Commonwealth Country or England
as he was the subject of a deportation order from England and his
file has come alive again in the Home Secretary's Office.  Harry
Thompson's wives and victims are always looking for him to have
him arrested. Watson is a set-up for arrest as a homosexual. Any
meeting held by them should be torn up. The names of any persons
attending should be collected and they should be labelled SP as they
have left Scientology. These people are SP because they are seeking
to avoid auditing and retain their withholds. Once labelled, these
persons will not then be covered by amnesty and will never be
admitted to further training or processing. Persons messing them-
selves up with Amprinistic self audit and restim should be refused
any assistance. If these persons move into your area act through
any agency you can to have them deported or arrested on whatever
grounds. England is currently too hot for them so they may tour
about. Horner's UK deportation order, Thompson's police record
and Watson's homosexuality make them very vulnerable to deportation
or arrest.

     They do not have our mailing lists but have contacted only
people whose addresses appeared in last years Auditors. By holding
meetings in the vicinity of each Scientology organization they hope
to recruit applicants.

     Their influence is far less than they pretend. They seem big
(like any SP) because they sent literature to our org officers in an
effort to suppress them. Their public reach is very tiny. Don't
help it. Therefore this is our policy:

     (1) Do not mention the name Amprinistics in public or in our
magazines or issues.

     (2) Harass these persons in any possible way.

     (3) Label publicly "ideas which preach no-auditing as simply
Suppressive Actions to deny people case gains".

     (4) Tear up any meeting held and get the names of those
attending and issue SP orders on them and you'll have lost a lot of

     (5) Promote like mad and get the new Foundation Course
and Grades of Release in so you'll be on firm ground if they upset
your area.

     They may bring temporary enturbulation to your area but
beyond that have no other importance as such groups die easily
and we make a habit of survival.
