From braintree!!!!!!Starbase.NeoSoft.COM!not-for-mail Tue Oct 10 10:01:26 1995 Path: braintree!!!!!!Starbase.NeoSoft.COM!not-for-mail From: dcs@Starbase.NeoSoft.COM (David C Smith) Newsgroups: alt.religion.scientology Subject: News from Houston Dianetics Center Date: 5 Oct 1995 12:44:53 -0500 Organization: NeoSoft Internet Services +1 713 968 5800 Lines: 93 Message-ID: <4515il$l5d@Starbase.NeoSoft.COM> NNTP-Posting-Host: Summary: From their _Freedom Quest News_ Keywords: Scientology, cult, Dianetics, scam, Houston, Texas -----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Another piece of the local Dianetics Center's junk mail that was given to me is their 4 page newsletter _Freedom Quest News_ for September 1995. Here are a couple of snippets that may be of interest to ARS'ers, especially those residing in Houston, TX. *** BEGIN FAIR USE EXTRACT *** Workshops Update The last DIANETICS Workshop went well -- we do not have a date yet for the next one but we will let you know soon. We are planning on being in the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo this year as well as the Houston Tenneco Marathon. Anyone who wants to be on the committees, pleace call 974-xxxx. xxxxx xxxxxx, Public Executive Secretary *** END FAIR USE EXTRACT *** I think that it might be a good idea if the ARS Central Committee also has a presence at the above events. A protest might even be in order. *** BEGIN FAIR USE EXTRACT *** Expansion News We know exactly what targets must be completed for the Houston Mission to become a full-fledged Church of Scientology. If you are interested, call xxxxx today. *** END FAIR USE EXTRACT *** I *highly* doubt that this will ever happen, as the Houston "Mission" is a tiny little hole-in-the-wall org with little traffic. Houston has not been a very friendly market to the cult. *** BEGIN FAIR USE EXTRACT *** Game Standings So far this year, the Houston Mission has achieved a "Highest Ever Production" statistic 46 times. As a result of this achievement, the Houston Mission is now the Number Five Mission for the Year and the Number Eight Mission for the Quarter. (Out of 233 missions active in the Birthday Game.) Houston is also Number One in the "Books Make Booms" Game. xxxxx xxxx, HCO Executive Secretary *** END FAIR USE EXTRACT *** By the "Birthday Game", I assume they mean multiplying stats by 5 times by LRH's birthday? It is truly amazing what can be done when LRH's creative accounting tek is applied correctly. Heh. The newsletter includes some WINS!(tm) from the Purification Rundown , and ads for courses and books. Also, there is a calendar of events for September/October 1995. Highlights: 09/17 - FSM Rally, 11:30am 09/21 - Second Quarter of the Birthday Game Ends! 10/05 - Brink your selectees in for personality and IQ testing! 10/08 - Brink your selectees in for personality and IQ testing! Tuesdays - "The Story of BOOK ONE" Film and DIANETICS Lecture, 7pm At the bottom of the calendar is a "Special Acknowledgment to xxxxxx xxxx. She sold her 179th book on 26 Aug 95! Very Well Done, xxxxxx." The back page inludes a list of "RECENT COMPLETIONS AT THE HUBBARD DIANETICS FOUNDATION OF HOUSTON" which lists the names of people and the courses they recently completed. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: 2.6.2 iQCVAwUBMHQZi18NLo2vey9NAQHO3wP8D5qOi37qj70TrgKRhV1VqXwkw1J6AcwF kZjqukuo4ElfJZoFtt+mby4d+pDaVSHUAkNkehnLgmJeBOZx/XzaQTlVdZEbQ6MB BjUCkbJfQDyfrtidjRBfolN96NX31p7Net3ILV+LufVbi0kN5q9q5NL8O6ZwwYTQ CJlx/bQlfVY= =D/En -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- | David C.
