The Text of Scientology

It's a Scientology Dictionary, don't go past a misunderstood word.

LRH COMM BUREAU, the LRH Comm Bureau logs, distributes and
obtains compliance from all LRH issues. It receives and responds to
all public response to LRH. It maintains LRH as image and Source by
establishing LRH as an image in orgs and with the public. (CBO 7)

  LRH COMM LOG, 1. the purpose of the LRH Comm Log is to accurately
record details of all LRH communications received and their
acknowledgement and compliance from recipients of those orders. It
is further used to detect areas of non-compliance, no reports and
false reports (through direct observation or examination of
statistics). The basic operating tool of an LRH Comm is his log
book. This is usually a common day ledger divided Into separate
sections with an index marker. All LRH EDs, HCO PLs, HCOBs, telexes
and dispatches requiring either acknowledgement or compliance or
both are logged by the LRH Comm immediately after they receipt,
prior to mimeo or duplication of issue. The log is kept up daily
and is never permitted to backlog. (BPL 19 Oct 73) 2. all SEC EDs,
HCO PLs, HCO Exec Letters and dispatches requiring either
acknowledgement or compliance or both are logged by the LRH
Communicator in every org. Any common day ledger may be used. The
emphasis is on completeness and legibility not on neatness. The
thing to watch is to log the moment the item or report is received.
(HCO PL 17 Mar 66)

  LRH COMM MASTER FILES, each LRH Comm keeps a fee for each type of
issue from LRH-HCOBs, HCO PLs, EDs, etc., and one marked for
Indexes containing the monthly lists of mimeo items. (BPL 20 May 70

  LRH COMM NETWORK, the LRH Comm Network is one of the oldest
established networks in Scn organizations. Its major function is to
get compliance to LRH's orders, policies, projects and programs and
to see that these stay in. The LRH Comm Network is not a management
network. It is a communication and compliance network for LRH. (CBO

  LRH COMM PROGRAMS CHIEF, 1. the post heads up its own branch on
the Programs Bureau Org Board. The FOLO/CLO LRH Comm Programs Chief
is the opposite number of the LRH Comm Programs Chief Flag and has
a direct line to LRH Combats of the area orgs for the purpose of
getting compliance with LRH issues and orders, and LRH Comm Network
issues and orders, as specified and directed by LRH Comm Programs
Chief Flag (CBO 252) 2. the title of LRH Comm Programs Chief is
hereby abolished. Former LRH Comm Programs Chiefs in FOLOs are
appointed Deputy LRH Comm-Continental. The title of LRH Comm Pgms
Chief Flag is hereby changed to that of Deputy LRH Comm Flag. (HCO
PL 3 Aug 73-1) [The above HCO PL was cancelled by BPL 10 Oct 75

  LRH COMM STAFF PROGRAM NO. 1, 1. this is a plan to get all staff
members up to HDC or HDG and get them through the Org Exec Course.
It is done by part-time training, the person


carrying on his regular staff job. If staffs are all trained on the
OEC it is very unlikely that the org form and functions will go
out. Technical reality on the subject of auditing pcs is highly
desirable on the part of admin staff. (LRH ED 78 INT) 2. this
program is designed to part-time train staff up to HDC and HDG and
then the Org Exec Course. (SO ED 12 INT)

  LRH COMMUNICATOR, 1. the LRH Comm is located on the org board in
Dept 21, Office of LRH. As part of an autonomous network, the LRH
Comm does not come under local executive jurisdiction, but is
subject to the orders and directions of network seniors. As a
personal representative of LRH, the LRH Comm has full powers to
take those actions in accordance with his hat to carry out LRH's
intention for his org. The prime duty of an LRH Comm is getting
verification of compliance with existing LRH programs or orders
intended for that org or area, and new LRH issues as released. (BPL
5 Dec 73R II) 2. the title of that person in a Scn org who is
responsible for the communication and handling of LRH matters with
regard to that org. (BTB 12 Apr 72R) 3. an LRH Communicator has a
basic duty of getting compliances with LRH orders. This remains the
basic duty. (HCO PL 27 Feb 71 I) 4. the department head, Department
21. (FEBC 12, 7102C03 SO II) 5. is in charge of Flag Division IX.
(FO 2674) 6. as the LRH Comm is a split off of the old HCO Area Sec
hats, these two combine very easily as HCO Area Secs were LRH's
first communicators. (LRH ED 49 NT) 7. the LRH Comm is responsible
for making a functioning HCO and for LRH orders to that org and for
its ethics condition. These are establishment factors. (LRH ED
153RE INT) 8. the person in charge of Division 7 is the LRH Comm of
the ship. This person of course is the divisional officer. This
division is normally called the Executive Division. (FO 1109) 9.
the LRH Comm has the first and primary duty of "making Ron's
postulates stick." AD his admin and actions have to do with this.
The LRH Communicator handles the communications to and from LRH and
gets compliance with LRH EDs and orders and (in absence of an Asst
Guardian) enforces policy letters. (HCO PL 10 May 68) 10. the
primary function of the LRH Communicator us getting acknowledgments
for SEC EDs issued or getting the Executive Director's orders and
policy issued and reporting to LRH. (HCO PL 19 Jan 66 II) 11. the
purpose of the LRH Communicator is: to forward the communications
and orders of LRH and to make certain that his orders, dispatches,
directives, policy letters and secretariats are issued and complied
with and that acknowledgment is returned to LRH concerning them in
due course. (HCO PL 27 Dec 65) Abbr. LRH Comm.


  LRH COMMUNICATOR PROJECT BOARD, the LRH Communicator keeps a
project board. Every project or order or directive or SEC ED Issued
is noted on this board; by routine and regular inspection
personally and by dispatch the LRH Communicator sees to it that
each and every order and project is eventually complied with or
acknowledged. (HCO PL 27 Dec 65)

  LRH COMM WW, he must give first priority to three things: (a)
keeping the LRH Comm Network manned and operating, as the inter-org
network of world communication; (b) ensuring rapid distribution of
orders, executive directives, HCOBs, policy letters, materials for
HGC and student training; (c) compliance herewith. A forth and
important action of LRH Comm WW is to see that tapes by LRH are
played in orgs wherever possible and also with excellent quality. A
fifth duty is to see that an actual Office of LRH exists in orgs,
that busts and photos are displayed and that Source is maintained
In orgs. The LRH Comm WW should see to it that the LRH Comm Network
is used, that orders and actions are logged and that all LRH Comms
are well trained and aware of their duties. (HCO PL 12 Feb 70 II)

  LRH COMPILATIONS LIBRARIAN, (LRH Compilations Unit) the purpose
of the LRH Compilations Librarian is: to help LRH increase the
availability, usage and consumption of LRH's IN and Scn materials
through a well organized honorary of these materials. (COLRHED 387)

  LRH COMPILATIONS UNIT, on Flag there is an LRH Compilations Unit
established in the Personal Of rice of LRH which has the sole
purpose of aiding and carrying out Ron's wishes for new books and
articles he wants to do. This means an entire, full-time research,
artistic and transcription staff that Ron can personally call on to
compile materials for his use or publication. (FBDL 412)

  LRH EDs, L. Ron Hubbard Executive Directives, earlier called SEC
EDs. These are issued by LRH to various areas. They are not valid
longer than one year if fully complied with when they are
automatically retired. They otherwise remain valid until fully
complied with or until amended or cancelled by another LRH ED. They
carry current line, projects, programs, immediate orders and
directions They are numbered for area and sequence for the area and
are sent to staffs or specific posts in orgs. They are blue ink on
white paper with a special heading. (HCO PL 24 Sept FOR)

  LRH, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, this us better understood as "General
Manager" as it isn't as a member of the board that it is held but
as a manager. This is a paid post in any corporation or
association. There are numerous LRH Exec Dir titles and identities;
for this title repeats in each area and org and in the
International Division. It means "highest of the organization,"
"third member of the Advisory Council," "head of the department
called the Office of LRH." Therefore there is one of these titles
for each org we have and for the International Exec Division as
well Perth for instance has an LRH Executive Director, Perth, LA
has LRH Executive Director LA, etc. Then there is LRH Executive
Director WW. The identity of the LRH Communicator in the org or
activity gives clue to this. Each LRH Executive Director title has
an LRH Communicator. There are two LRH Communicators at Saint Hill,
LRH Communicator WW, who attends to each org for LRH Executive
Director WW via each org's LRH Communicator and LRH Communicator SH
who handles the traffic both of LRH Executive Director WW as sent
to It from the LRH Communicator WW and for LRH Executive Director
SH. This is only possible as the ores are all similarly engaged.
HCO Area Secs filled this role for years and still do where there
is no LRH Communicator. HCO Area Secs still have duties for the
Executive Director regardless of the LRH Communicator as old policy
letters show. "SEC ED issue" is one of these. Proper routing from
an org is through the LRH Comm of that org to LRH Executive
Director of that org and forwarded on to LRH Comm WW who sees that
LRH Exec Dir that org receives it in absence. LRH Exec Dir WW may
issue a blanket order concerning it but it is usually answered by
LRH Exec Dir that org. The Advisory Council of any org operates
without its third member, LRH Exec Dir of that org but in case of
disputes or errors finds LRH Exec Dir that org taking it up. (HCO
PL 4 Jan 66 VI)

  LRH HEAVY HUSSARS HAT, this function is to move in heavily where
there is a threat of great importance to an org or Scn. After the
usual lines and posts have goofed. The term comes from the old
cavalry purpose of Fussers who were held in reserve until a battle
bee was dangerously bowed, at which they were sent in to straighten
it out. (HCO PL 1 Mar 66)

  LRH MEDIA ORG, the LRH Photoshoot Org was an org that specialized
only in photography, assisting LRH. Since that time, it has
expanded into other media fields such as radio, television ads,
billboards and video as well as still doing photography. The name
has been changed to a name that encompasses all these products. The
new name is: LRH Me& Organization. (ED 871 Flag) Abbr. LMO.

  LRH PERSONAL AIDE, 1. per HCO PL 22 February 1967, Office of LRH,
LRH Personal Office Organization, LRH Personal Aide was in the
Office of LRH over the LRH Personal Aide Branch which includes LRH
Audio Visual Aids Section, Processing Unit, Cameras Unit, Tapes
Unit, Recorders Unit and Supplies Unit. (HCO PL 22 Fob 67) [The
post of LRH Personal Aide is abolished per HCO PL 2 Jul 1968 Issue
II, Office of LRH WW Reorganization]

  LRH PERSONAL COMMUNICATOR, 1. this post coordinates
communications from all sources to LRH. The LRH Pers Comm has full
control of the Household Unit and LRH Personal Pro and all
equipment, vehicles, gear, material and spaces. Thus the hat breaks
down into five functions: (1) coordinating and rerouting traffic so
it will be handled, (2) logging, nudging and keeping track of LRH
projects, (3) library and filing, (4) keeping Household Unit
matters up to the mark and the personnel busy and accounted for,
(5) setting up schedules and events and getting things coordinated
for them. The LRH Personal Comm hat is vital to let me produce. (FO
2370) 2. the Flag Office of LRH is under the control and
administrative command of the LRH Persons) Communicator. In matters
of pay, liberty, uniforms, quarters, repairs, etc., the Flag Office
of LRH and its personnel operate under the LRH Personal

PRO and dissemination and provide an image for presentation
elsewhere. This is accomplished by controlled good relations with
all LRH publics. (COLRHED II)

International is a new post in the Personal Office of LRH at Flag.
The post purpose is to get LRH's technologies utilized by the
external publics internationally. Ron's


external publics are those publics outside of Scn, governments,
media, social reform, education, the arts, business, specialist
activities are all included in Ron's external publics. LRH Personal
Pro International creates International campaigns that get the
technologies developed by LRH used throughout the world. (BPL 3
Sept 75 II) 2. it is located in the Personal Office of LRH directly
under LRH's Personal Communicator. The post of LRH's Personal PRO
International is concerned with external publics. The post is not
connected with the present LRH Personal PRO Office. (BPL 3 Sept 75
I) 3. LRH PR international is solely international and works with
GO, governments and LRH's PR internationally with her own network.

  LRH PERSONAL PRO OFFICE, (Flag) the present LRH Personal PRO
Office exclusively assists Ron with public relations activities
concerning the Internal publics of Dianetics and Scientology. (BPL

the publics with whom LRH PR for Professional


Scientologists will be working are those persons in any type of
profession who are already in Scn. The purpose of the post very
simply stated is to: hat Scientologists in using LRH tech in their
professions (as well as in their personal life) and thereby
expanding the use of LRH tech so broadly that all Scientologists
make LRH tech indispensable in every profession known to man and
acknowledged as such. (COLRHED 359)

  LRH PROPERTIES, by definition property means furniture, fittings,
personal effects and files and papers which are the personal
property of LRH, an individual, or LRH, an official of the
organization. (HCO PL 27 Dec 65)

Org and the Flagship, by the Commodore, which have to do with SO
operating policies, principles, etc., of incalculable value to
Continental Captains, stationships, and all units and their crews.

  LRH'S OFFICE, by policy and tradition, the Founder has an office
of his own in each org. The LRH Comm is responsible for its
establishment and upkeep. It is the property of LRH personally and
the place where his own belongings and material in the org are
kept. (BPL 23 Dec 72R)

  LRH, STAFF MEMBER, 1. in addition to all other identities and
titles there is that of LRH, Staff Member. As such I give staff
lectures in the org where I am, assist where I can, crack cases and
train students as "coordinator of research" (meaning application of
research), write magazines, take pictures, act as a routing expert,
listen to problems, and do a lot of other things. I am chiefly a
staff member of the org where I am located but am also a am member
of each org. (HCO PL 4 Jan 66 VI) 2. LRH, a staff member works on
staffs as a ease consultant, training officer, lecturer, design and
planning consultant, promotions adviser, and a department head of
the Of flee of LRH and as such should receive compensation. As a
staff member his expenses are paid by orgs. The pre-Dn salary level
of LRH, an employee, was several times that given by orgs
subsequently. (HCO PL 21 Dec 65)

  LRH, TRUSTEE, 1. this is L. Ron Hubbard in the capacity of a
trustee as distinct from a director or individual or staff member.
LRH, Trustee, holds money for corporations or persons or holds
property for them. (HCO PL 21 Dec 65) 2. this identity is a trustee
who holds in trust properties and money for Scn and since 1957 has
held UK and Commonwealth corporations in trust for the original
U.S. company until these assets can be transferred to a UK
nonprofit corporation. All money sent to LRH an Individual is
received by LRH a trustee or a corporation and is seldom paid to
LRH an individual but turned over to companies without being given
to LRH, an individual. This is a vital point, often missed even by
accountants who then get us involved. "Trustee" is an identity and
activity almost all movements, churches, and benevolent
associations have and in each case the "trustee" does just what LRH
a trustee is doing - safeguarding property and assets of an
association. It's a very usual role. (HCO PL 4 Jan 66 VI)

  LRH, TRUSTEE FOR TRANSFER, for some years the Commonwealth
(overseas, not U.S.) interests belonging to the Hubbard Association
of Scientologists, International, Incorporated, in Arizona, have
been held by LRH, Trustee for Transfer. As the overseas interests
were worthless to the U.S. corporations in the U.S. (HASI, Arizona)
due to currency exchange laws, and was costing it money, the Board
of HASI, Arizona, appointed LRH a trustee for transfer for ail
Commonwealth corporations property or interests with orders to hand
it over to a UK corporation. (HCO PL 21 Dec 65)

given the title of "Founder" instead. I am still available for
consultation and for signature. It is called to attention that the
signature available is that of L. Ron Hubbard, as a writer, and not
that of L. Ron Hubbard, an individual. As the two signatures may
become somewhat confused, the distinction is emphasized. On
specific request, as a writer, I will write books on Scn, its
organization, and will write HCOBs and policy letters as requested.
This is my writer hat. (BPL 1 Sept 66R)


  L. RON HUBBARD, FOUNDER, purpose: to develop and disseminate Scn.

  MENTAL DISEASE, there is no evidence of any kind what so ever
that there is anything called a mental disease. So therefore the

healing, apart from On, has not been developed in recent centuries
and a science or study to relieve man, but rather has been aborted
to use as a means of political control. Treatments such as electric
shock have killed or permanently crippled millions through the
violence of the convulsions it creates. Prefrontal lobotomy makes
man into a vegetable. It is true it calms him down but he can never
become well again, if he even survives the operation. Drugs can
kill through the severity of their effects on the human body.
Mental healing has become almost totally associated with brutality
and control and is used for the most sordid purposes. (BPL 4 Jul

  MINUS INVOICE, in invoicing in come and in writing disbursement
vouchers, all corrections are


done on additional invoices or vouchers. This makes it unnecessary
to search wildly the machine copies to correct them. The original
invoices or vouchers are often already distributed when a need of
correction arises. Instead of correcting the original write a minus
invoice giving what transaction was being corrected as fully as
possible. In case of a refund from cash just received or a
correction of amounts just received or in case of a bad check
informed from the bank, write a minus invoice and clearly mark it
so and for how much and to whom and why. In adding the week's
income these show up easily. When separating out Invoices into
classes of Income for an audit these minus invoices show up clearly
and are subtracted from the type of income. Mark the invoice minus
in big capital letters so nobody can miss it. (HCO PL 30 Jan 66

  MINUS VOUCHER, 1. in invoicing income and in writing disbursement

or when a payment comes back unaccepted or when for any reason
something already disbursed is found not to be disbursed after all

Sept 68) 8. a mission could be defined for our use as a formally
authorized individual or group sent to perform a specific task or
duty sent by Operations. That would require, then, personnel
selection, training, briefing, Mission Orders, dispatch and full
admin. The difference between an errand and a mission is that
missions are sent by an Operations Officer, errands are sent by
anyone else. When an "errand" Evolves more than one day it should
be handled by Operations, not by some other division. It then
becomes a mission. (FO 2530R) 9. to handle downstat orgs and areas
the Sea Org simply gets in ethics. This is done in such a way as to

  MULTIPLE REPORT, two bad data systems are in current use on data.
The first is "reliable source." The other system in use is multiple
report. If a report is heard from several areas or people it is
"true." The Russian KGB has a Department D that forges documents
and plants them in several parts of the world. They are then
"true." Propaganda spokesmen located all over the world say the
same thing to the press on every major occasion. This becomes
"public opinion" in government circles and so is "true" because it
is published and comes from so many areas. Five informants could
all have heard the same lie. (HCO PL 17 May 70)

  MULTIPLE VIEWPOINT SYSTEM, 1. something new was added to the
world with the multiple viewpoint system. What's this new system?
Well, you see everything from the branch office! You don't see it
from headquarters. You have to be as pan-determined as daylight to
even conceive of such a system. For it's a true OT system. Every
situation is viewed from the viewpoint of the branch office, or the
regiment on the firing line or the squadron in the sky. It takes a
pretty humble or pretty OT HO to say "We don't have a viewpoint. We
are not important as a viewpoint. The only viewpoint that's
important is that of the man on the firing line, the Squadron
Leader in the sky, the Colonel actuary engaged i battle." So that's
a multiple viewpoint system! The key is files. Every org in the
world has a file for each month in the data files. As the data
pours in from that org-telexes, staff reports, MO reports, finance
reports, surveys, personnel records, observations, any and all data
it goes bang at once into that org's file for the month. All in a
folder for that org for that month. And there's that org, not only
current, but for each month exactly for years back. As fast as
they've been filed they are worked. In other words read and
acknowledged. Queries are handled. (FBDL 192R) 2. the files are so
arranged (one org, one month of data) that one can obtain the
viewpoint of that org from that org as though one were in that org
looking out. AD former operations systems on this planet have a
single viewpoint system, that of headquarters. As soon as you grasp
this fact, that HO is no viewpoint except of headquarters and that
all data puts one's point of view right there in an org, you can
file that way. (OODs 1 May 72)

rapid transfers defeat any post training or competence. We call this
action musical chairs. That is a game in which people rapidly
change positions. (HCO PL 29 Aug 70 I) 5. excessive transfers. (HCO
PL 27 Oct 69) 6. musical chairs in life is the mechanism below ARC
breaks an Grade III! To unstabilize gives ARC breaks! Whole staff
can be put into a sad effect! This is the mechanism governments
use. It's the basic tool of the socialist. If he can just


everyone he can kill them with degrade. It's a basic tool of the
Insane to maintain their own stability by unstabilizing everyone
else. (OODs 20 Aug 71)

  MUSICAL FUNCTIONS, now just as there can be musical chairs, so
there can be musical functions. And you can transfer functions from
person to person or you can transfer factions from department to
department until nobody can keep his place in the book. The org can
go just as mad changing all of the functions amongst the staff
members as they can changing staff members. (ESTO 12, 7203C06 SO

  NEVER PROSPECT, the Scn qualification for a never prospect who
has not bought anything from the org is someone who does not
respond to personal contact, or reach as a result of the Division 6
mailings. A person qualifying as a never prospect does not mean the
road to total freedom is barred to him forever. Should he reach at

more) at a lower org or mission for the first time or someone not
already in SH CF who reaches for SH services or who joins the I
Want to Go Clear Club at the AO or who is a Scientologist/
Dianeticist buying a book directly from SH for the


first time. (HCO PL 10 Feb 72R III) 4. (for an Advanced
Organization) the new name must not already be in the CF of the org
counting the stat. If it is then it is not valid; it isn't "new."
Definition: a Scientologist or Dianeticist who expresses a desire
for AO service for the first time, e.g. joins the I Want to Go
Clear Club. Note that the definition says Scientologist or
Dianeticist so raw public does not qualify for AO CF. "Expresses a
desire" is not defined and may riot be judged only as someone who
pays money to the AO. Joining the I Want to Go Clear Club or
writing in, a payment of money, or a letter to the AO containing
interest in taking an AO service(s) is what qualifies as
"expressing a desire." Anything less such as verbal expression is
not acceptable. (HCO PL 10 Feb 72R III) 5. (Public Division

has bought something from the org for the first time, whether this
is a book, HAS Course, HQS Course, or any other service sold -
either paid in part or in full, and whose name is not already in
central files. This does not authorize the illegal practice of
counting a new name to CF as someone who bought an "FSM magazine"
or some other small item. The least item bought is a book. A book
sold by an org FSM is a new none to the org's CF. The FSM must,
however, send in the name and address of the buyer with evidence of
sale to the Dir Clearing. (HCO PL 28 Nov 71R II) Abbr. NNCF.

number of new people brought into the org: these are new, raw
public coming into the org for the first time for testing, events,
introductory lectures, to see the Public Registrar or for any
reason in the direction of wanting to know about Scn. The statistic
is counted whether the person buys a book or service (public
service in Div 6 or major service in Diva 4 or 5) or not. The stat
is calculated by counting up the number of interviews done by the
Public Reg at the end of the week and cross-checking these with the
invoices from books sold to raw public. These invoiced can be
simply designated RP (raw public) for fast cross-check when
bookstore person is invoicing during week. (HCO PL 28 Nov 71R II)

  NEW PEOPLE ROUTED TO REG, (Public Division statistic) number of
new people routed to reg: this stat is self-evident. It is the
number of new people routed to reg. What matters is that this new
person is not OF, has come to the org probably for the first time.
It doesn't matter what reg. It is preferably the Public Reg but the
stat is still counted if somebody else has to stand in for her.
Also, the new person has to have arrived at the reg. Somebody told
that the reg is in the first room on the left is not a stat. (HCO

time the org must have three Public Divisions instead of just one
division (6) devoted to it. The three new divisions are headed by
the Public Executive Secretary. Former Division Six is simply
expanded with each department becoming a division with added
functions. The division then becomes: Division 9 - Executive Div.

  NO-CASE-GAIN, 1. the only reason the insane were hard to
understand is that they are handling situations which no longer
exist. The situation probably existed at one time. They think they
have to hold their own, with overts against a non-existent enemy to
solve a non-existent problem. Because their overts are continuous
they have withholds. Since such a person has withholds, he or she
can't communicate freely to as-is the block on the track that keeps
them in some yesterday. Hence, a no-case-gain. (HCO PL 5 Apr 65) 2.

  NO HOLE NUDGE SYSTEM, the idea of this system is for the ASR Unit
to ensure that Al people advance scheduled get written to
regularly, are kept track of with no chance of falling off the
lines and so do arrive at the org on or before their scheduled
date. It also enables lack of comm from persons scheduled to be
located and rapidly handled. A 3" x 5" card file is compiled of all
people already in the ASR master card file (names only are written
in on the card). This file is caked the nudge file. The ASR, writes

Barriers consist of space, interpositions (such as walls and
screens of fast-moving particles), and time. (HCO PL 4 Apr 72 III)

  NON-COMPLIANCE REPORT, staff member report of non-compliance with
legal orders. (HCO PL 1 May 65)


  NON-COMPLIANCES, a type of dev-t where failure to comply with an
order can set an emergency flap going which crowds the lines with
dispatches. One consequence of non-compliance when repeated over a

in a sort of frantic jam. Catastrophies can occur because of
non-compliance. (HCO PL 27 Jan 69)

  NON CO-OP, we used to have an HCO category known as non coop,
meaning no cooperation from us. People who demanded 90% of our time
comprised only a small per cent of our people. Such we put on a
private non-cooperate list. We just didn't do anything for them.
When they called and demanded action we'd say "uh-huh" and forget
it. After a while they'd wander off our lines and we'd be free of

that Scn is open to people of all religions and beliefs and in no
way tries to persuade a person from his religion, but assists him
to better understand that he is a spiritual being. (BPL 6 Mar 69)

  NON DISCLOSURE BOND, all persons off-loaded from Flag for any
reason (expulsion, Fitness Board or whatever) are required to sign
the non disclosure bond prior to departure. This bond does not
require that any actual money be paid over. It does, however,
provide that should the person ever reveal the location of Flag, a
sum of money will immediately become due and payable. The purpose
of this bond is to ensure Flag locational security. The bond may be
used in other circumstances as suggested by the F/MAA and approved
by the A/G Flag. (FO 3529)

  NON-EXISTENCE, every new appointee to a post begins in
nonexistence. Whether obtained by new appointment, promotion, or
demotion. He is normally under the delusion that now he is "The _"
(new title). He tries to start off in power condition as he is
usually very aware of his new status or even a former status. But
in actual fact he is the only one aware of it. All others except
perhaps the Personnel Officer are utterly unaware of him as having
his new status. Therefore he begins in a state of nonexistence. And
if he does not begin with the non-existence formula as his guide he
will be using the wrong condition and will have all kinds of
trouble. (HCO PL 23 Sept 67)

  NON-EXISTENCE FORMULA, formula is (1) find a comm line, (2) make
yourself known, (3) discover what is needed and/or wanted, (4) do

  NON-REMIMEO, 1. non-remimeo means HCO Bulletins, policy letters,
administrative letters and executive letters which are intended for
use but only by executives and therefore of limited distribution.
It means not to be mimeoed again by the receiving org. On
non-remimeo, a very few copies are sent to maim orgs and they in
turn distribute to their nearby orgs. (HCO PL 2 Jul 64) 2.
non-remimeo means bulletins and policy letters which are intended
for use but only by executives and therefore are of limited
distribution. It means not to be mimeoed again by the receiving
org. There are two classes of non-remimeo: general non remimeo and
limited non-remimeo. General non-remimeo distribution is based on
one copy for master files, one copy to LRH Comm, one copy to the
Guardian or A/G, one copy each to the FR, ED(CO), HES and OES, one
copy to the Qual library reference files and one copy to the
reference files of all bulletins and PLs kept in reception for
staff, one copy to the division head(s) and the department head(s)
concerned and one copy to the post(s) in the department(s)
concerned. General non-remimeo issues usually deal with broader
points of admin or tech of interest to one or two production
departments as well as the LRH Comm, FR, the Guardian or A/G, HES,
OES and ED(CO). They are never strewn about or broadly republished
as they could be misunderstood. Limited non-remimeo means that
copies only go to master files, LRH Comm, the Guardian or A/G, HES,
OES, ED(CO) and FR. It is usually important that this does not get
wide distribution as it has to do with org know-how, planning,
etc., and could be misunderstood. So it is not remimeoed or strewn
about. It may be taken up in staff meetings but that is about all.
One mover republishes a limited non-remimeo in a magazine. (BPL 14

over the off-going OOD shows this report to the on-coming COD,
together with any other pertinent data. It is then handrouted to
the Captain for his attention. (FSO ORB)

  NO REALITY, (form of arbitrary) the receipt of a communication is
an extremely important part of the sequence of actions that results
in a compliance. Common reasons for the non-receipt of a
communication are that arbitraries (or arbitrary


factors) exist to the area. No reality means an absence of
familiarity with the scene effected by the originator's Intention
which prevents the recipient from connecting the communication with
the existing scene, or which precludes in the recipient's mind any
possibility of making any change, or the desired change, to the
existing scene. It can manifest as an Evolvement on the part of an
individual in a situation in his personal life which occupies all
his attention, or as a failure to fully wear a hat on account of
one or more of the organizational psychoses. (BPL 10 Nov 73 A)

  NO-REPORT, 1. if one fails to make out a report it is a no-report
situation and may be investigated. (HCO PL 14 Apr 65 Pi) 2. an
unreadable report is classed as a no-report. (HCO PL 14 Apr 65 III)
3. (no-reports) a type of dev-t where the scramble to find out how
something has been done increases traffic. This includes lack of
data forwarded as it should have been. It causes as well anxiety
and uncertainty. The scramble to find out of something has been
done increases traffic. (HCO PL 27 Jan 69) 9. no-report means
non-compliance. (HCO PL 31 May 68) Abbr. OR.

  NO-REPORT REPORT, staff member report of any failure to receive a

  NO RESPONSIBILITY, the way not to have is to ignore or combat or
withdraw from. These three, ignoring or combatting or withdrawing
sum up to no having. They also sum up to no responsibility for such
things. Thus we can define responsibility as the concept of being
able to care for, to reach or to be. AD real difficulty stems from
no responsibility. (HCO PL 17 Jan 62)

  NO RIGHTS, means no rights. The normal rights an individual would
have, such as eating, sleeping, wearing uniform, having liberty,
taking breaks, etc., an individual does not have when he gets
himself into a lowered condition. Of course, anyone may have some
food and some sleep, this is needed so the body can keep going. But
as for dressing nicely, wearing uniforms and doing the same things
that you would do in normal operation, the answer is no. You got
into a low condition because you goofed. Now you are expected to
suffer the penalties for the goof you made, apply the condition and
as you start coming up, so you start getting your rights back. (FO

from Operations Aide, quite in addition to "regular duties": (a) to
keep a fully filed up-to-date data files ready for instant use that
give the local viewpoint of any org at any time, (b) to keep comm

missions on real orders on target and completing, especially that
mission orders and actions do not cross order and forward command

back on their orders you pull them out. That's very unreasonable,
but that's the best definition of an Ops Officer. He's
unreasonable. If a mission goes off its orders you have lost

  ORGANIZATION, 1. an organization means the act of organizing or
the process of being organized, The state or manner of being
organized: "A high degree of organization." Something that has been
organized or made into an ordered whole. A number of persons or
groups having specific responsibilities and united for some purpose
or work. Thus an organization is an activity or area that is being
organized or has been organized or made into an "ordered whole."
(HCO PL 29 Oat 71 II) 2. organization is composed of terminals and
lines and the terminals are there with a common purpose but they
are united by lines. (5812C16) 3. an organization is essentially a
service delivery unit. The continued expansion of an organisation
depends upon high volume flubless delivery. (HCO PL 29 Aug 71) 4.
an organization is composed of trained people, it isn't composed of
dead bodies. (FEBC 6, 7101C23 SO II) 5. a group of people that has
more or less constant membership, a body of officers, a purpose and
usually a set of regulations. (HCO PL 9 Nov 68) 6. an
interdependent activity coordinated by its leaders. (HCO PL 19 Oct
67 I) 7. an organization is a complex mechanism. It is made up of
associated individuals who have an agreed upon goal or intention.
They are going along in some direction which they do not too
violently disagree with, and it will make progress to the degree
that it stays in agreement and holds its form and to the degree
that it refines its form to meet new threats to its existence and
so it will survive. (SH Spec 77, 6608C23) 8. evidently an
organization is a number of terminals and communication lines with
a common purpose. The purpose associates and keeps in contact with
one another the terminals and the lines. That's all an organization
is. It isn't a factory, it isn't a house. It isn't a machine, it
isn't a product. It's not a command chart. If you look it over in
the fight of that simplicity you can actually form one and get one
to function. (OS-9, 5611C08) 9. an organization optimumly would be
composed of communication terminals. If we look it over and find an
organization is composed of communication terminals then we decide
that a communication terminal had better have a communication One.
So we find an organization consists of communication terminals


and communication lines associated with a common purpose or goal.
(OS-9, 5611C08) 10. it's a group of associated comm lines and
terminals which is itself a single terminal and it has ingo and
outcome lines. (OS-9, 5611C08) 11. a servo-mechanism to the
doingness of people. (OS-10, 5611C15) 12. an organization is
something which has its own spb it. It is composed of people or
living beings who are governed by certain rules and purposes and
who know how to do their jobs. That is an organization and when any
of those factors are neglected it becomes a "thing" even though it
still has a name and legal standing. (PAB 90) 13. an organization
is composed of terminals and communication lines related by a
common purpose. That's an organization. And all the organizational
pattern does is help separate the types of particles being handled.
That, in a nutshell, is an organization and what it does. (5812C29)
14. the word organization in Scn policy means an activity organized
on the seven division system authorized by myself and regular
official Scn organizations and under Worldwide. (HCO PL 11 Aug 67
II) 15. the essence of organization is org boarding, posting with
reality and, in keeping with the duties being performed, training
and hatting. To this has to be added the actual performance of the
duties so that the activity is productive. Another ingredient that
goes hand in hand with organization and survival is toughness. The
ability to stand up to and confront and handle whatever comes the
way of the organization depends utterly on the ability of the
individuals of the organization to stand up to, confront and handle
what comes the individual's way. The composite whole of this
ability makes a tough organization. Confidence in one's teammates
is another factor in organization survival. Confidence in one's
self is something that has to be earned. It is respect. This is a
compound of demonstrated competence, being on post and being
dependable. (OODs 10 Nov 71) 16. organization is basically
foresight and prediction and putting in stable terminals that will
handle the flows. What belongs where? (FEBC 1, 7011C17 SO) 17.
consists of a real and functional org board, hats consisting of
checksheets, packs and manuals and training of this material. (HCO
PL 8 Oct 70) 18. the purpose of organisation is to make planning
become actuality. Organization is not just a fancy complex system,
done for its own sake. That is bureaucracy at its worst. Org boards
for the sake of org boards, graphs for the sake of graphs, rules
for the sake of rules only add up to failures. There is a lot to
organization. It requires trained administrators who can forward
the programs. (HCO PL 14 Sept 69) 19. the subdivision of actions
and duties into specified functions. (HCO PL 7 Mar 69) 20.
organization consists of certain people doing certain jobs. (HCO PL
1 Jul 65 III) 21. smooth organization consists of having a terminal
for each type of activity in which the organization is engaged.
There can be four or five activities to one terminal so long as
three things are obeyed: (1) the terminal itself has to know it;
(2) nearby terminals have to know it; (3) distant terminals have to
know it. (PAR 78) 22. the attempt to establish terminals and flows
so as to bring about an orderly flow of energy or matter. (5808C25)

  ORGANIZATIONAL CHART, (pegboard) this board has the force of
assignment and is the primary means of assigning personnel in the

underneath by person's name. (HCO PL 27 Nov 59)

examined in turn. This is diagnosis. Repair consists of setting the
function back to order and each in turn after it, since when an
organism's highest functions fail, the remainder begin to enter
difficulties. This then is a diagnostic chart and a chart to effect
the cure. This list gives each function its proper importance to

the result shows receipt greater than expenses. (HCO PL 26 Jun 64)

  ORGANIZATION, CELLULAR, an organizational format of a production
plant and machinery in which all the parts and workers needed to

manufacturing line with work flowing in a single direction through
the entire factory as in an assembly line.


  ORGANIZATION, COMMITTEE, an organization wherein a joint body of

laws of organization. Primarily intended for Scn organization
executives, its policy letters are slanted toward a Scn org (short
for organization). However, it covers any organization and contains
fundamentals vital to any successful or profitable activity. This
course also applies to the individual. Any individual has his seven

  ORGANIZATION EXECUTIVE SECRETARY, 1. in early days there was an
HCO Sec in charge of the functions of the first three divisions
(Exec, HCO, Dissem) and an Assoc Sec in charge of the functions of
the last four divisions. The Org Board evolved further and the HCO
Exec Sec became the person in charge of the functions of the first

staff the Org Executive Secretary (OES) combines Accounts, Tech and
Qual functions. Elementary banking and bid paying (with the
registrar and PES both able to invoice in, giving the money over to

funds by recording and banking and paying bids, auditing pcs,
teaching students and correcting those cases that fail or students
that are slow. (LRH ED 49 INT) Abbr. OES, Org Exec Sec.

  ORGANIZATION FORM, 1. each org staff member is a specialist in
one or more innflar


functions. These are his specialties. If he is fully trained to do
these he is said to be hatted. The combined specialties properly
placed and being done add up to the full production of an org. The
org form is then the lines and actions and spaces and flows worked
out and controlled by specialists in each individual function.
These specialists are grouped in departments which have certain
actions in common. The departments having similar functions are
grouped into divisions. The divisions combine into the whole org
form. (HCO PL 28 Jul 72) 2. an org form is that arrangement of
specialized terminals which control and change the production and

  ORGANIZATION, FORMAL, an organization with an inflexible
organizational structure where employment positions and
departments, branches, etc., are clearly delineated as to duties,
responsibilities and authorities. In a formal organization there is
a great emphasis on maintaining the structure or form of the
organization as that is how it is designed to run. A formal
organization structure is essential for any organization to operate
and expand beyond only a handful of employees.

Org Officer is Organization, Formation and Repair Officer. He has a
hat similar to that of an old-time HCO Area Secretary. He puts an

  ORGANIZATION, INFORMAL, an organization with little or no
organizational structure or at best one that is flexible under
ggerating conditions. The distinction between duties,
responsibilities and authorities is not clear-cut as there are
often no specific employment titles or arrangement into
departments. An informal organization usually exists where a few
persons are closely associated and each knows every or many aspects
of the business which they handle ascending to who is available or
most familiar or as needed, etc. One cannot build a large
organization in this manner.

  ORGANIZATION INFORMATION CENTER, 1. this is not a clumsy graph
system but a species of mechanical brain that keeps continuous
check upon and corrects small bogs of its own accord. It forecasts
emergencies. This must have come from the Combat Information Center
of World War II, by which swarms of fighter planes, bombers or
landing craft could be individually directed with great case The
board is a smooth finished surface with a number of holders of 8"
by 10" (approximate size) graph paper. These papers are not stapled
on but drop into a three-sided border, open at the top. New papers
every quarter or so are put into the holder in front of the last
quarter's sheet so that one can refer back. The board has various
signs on it, one for each department. The graphs are in three
horizontal bees for one organization, with space for two to three
charts (in a single line) for each department. It is necessary for
quick reading to have the graph sheets in long lines rather than in
blocks - hence the board appears to be three long lines of graph,
no matter how many graphs there are in how many departments. (HCO

  ORGANIZATION, LABOR, a group of workers such as a labor union who
have the legal power to deal with employers on such issues as wage
disputes, better working conditions, grievances, etc., through the
process of collective bargaining.

  ORGANIZATION, LEAN, an organization which is not overstaffed. It
has just enough staff to keep people busy enough to get the job
done without staff colliding with each other physically and
emotionally. The level of interaction between staff is not high
enough to interfere with production and the interaction going on is
primarily between a person and his job. "Labor problems" would be
less as staff and executives would be too busy to cause them.

  ORGANIZATION LIBRARY, a library belonging to a business,
accessible to company executives and other employees and ideally
containing such books as would be needful to a person handling any
aspect of the company's business.

  ORGANIZATION, LINE, the military type of organization form
whereby there is a definite ascending and descending chain of
command. Each executive from the bottom up is responsible to the
person directly above him. Thus all persons in a department may be
directly responsible to the head of a department who in turn is
responsible to an executive who is in charge of, say, six
department heads and so on up the line. Orders pass from top
management down the line of command and compliances and data pass

  ORGANIZATION PROGRAM NO. 1, 1. this is an effort to make it easy
to reform an org whether the org is large or small. This gives how
to attain your two admin to one tech ratio-which must not be
exceeded. If an org's tech-admin ratio is greater than two admin to
one tech it will only he able to pay poorly and function badly.
This ED is to be used to stabilize and establish a workable org
form which will produce with good GIs and pay. Orgs which have more
than two admin to one tech should take from their excess admin
their best potential students and full time train them to swell
tech ranks and increase student and pc production. Org duties and
actions are clearly outlined in this program. (LRH ED 78 INT) 2. an

  ORGANIZATION STRUCTURE, the operating framework of a business or
organization. It is established by designating and naming
organizational units such as divisions, departments, branches,

  ORGANIZATION, THE, few people realize that HCO is actually a
separate company. It is the worldwide comm network of Dn and Scn.
As its finances and personnel are meshed in with the rest of the
org, its identity does not stay visible. But note it is still
called HCO and the rest of the divisions are called the
organization. (HCO PL 7 Feb 70 II)

  ORGANIZING, 1. in order to organize something one has to (1)
establish what is the final product, (2) work backwards in sequence
to establish the earlier products necessary to make each next
product and which all in a row add up to the final product, (3)
post it in terms of vertical greater and greater completeness of
product to get command channels, (4) all just it for flows, (5)
assign its comm sequence, (6) work out the doing resulting in each
product. Write these as functions and actions with all skills
included. (7) name these as posts, (8) post it, (9) drill it to get
it known, (10) assemble and issue the hats, (11) get these known,
(12) get the functions done so that the products occur. This is
what is called organizing. (HCO PL 26 Oct 70) 2. the know-how of
changing things. (HCO PL 1 Nov 70) 3. when routing arrangements are
made inside the org-from staff member to staff member - we call it
organizing. (HCO PL 17 Nov 64) 4. to put order into something. Not
organizing leads to confusion. This is true of groups and
individuals. (BPL 21 Oct 71 III) 5. the right way to go about it is
to have the tech of a job, plan it, get the materials, and then do
it. This we call organizing. When this sequence is not followed, we
have what we call cope. Too much cope will eventually break morale.
One copes while he organizes. If he copes too long without
organizing he will get a dwindling or no product. If he organizes
only he will get no product. Coping while organizing will bit by
bit get the line and action straighter and straighter and with less
work you get more product. (OODs 15 May 71) Abbr. Org.

org board and the org board must in truth be a representation of
what is in the org, The org board shows where what terminals are
located in the org so flows can occur. (HCO PL 7 Jul 71) 3. org
board is actually an abbreviation not for an organization (noun)
board but an organizing (verb) board. The org board shows the
pattern of organizing to obtain a product. A board then is a flow
chart of consecutive products brought about by terminals an series.
We see these terminals as "posts" or positions. Each one of these
is a hat. There is a flow along these hats. The result of the whole
board is a product. The product of each hat on the board adds up to
the total product. (HCO PL 28 Oct 70) 4. a proper org board is a
perpetual combination of flows which do not collide with one
another and which do enter and do experience the desired change and
which do leave as a product. (HCO PL 13 Sept 70 II) 5. the org
board is the general plan, the function indicator, the routing and
the personnel situation for the org. (HCO PL 17 Apr 70) 6. consists
of the terminals, actions and flows necessary to achieve an overall
purpose and to prevent distractions and stops from the purpose.

couple sheets of clear blue Formica, 4 feet high by more than 8'9"

one department only five inches of width. A yellow vertical stripe
of cellotape split in had separates departments in a division and
divisions are separated by a full width of it. A thin strip of
green goes all along the top of the departments. The level word
goes above each department and the yellow tape. The command lines
are in red cellotape. The names of departments are cut on a Dymo
using tape approximating the color flash of the department as
feasible. Executive Secretaries and secretary titles and names are
in gold Dymo tape. Directors' titles and names are in gold banded
brown tape. Other executives' titles and names are in gold banded
black tape. Communicators are in this tape. Section names are in
the same tape color as the department name. AD subsections or units
are the same tape color as the department name. AD general staff
members are in plain green tape. All provisional or temporary staff
members are in black tape. The name of a deputy is in green tape

  ORGANIZING BUREAU, 1. recruits and assigns to a training function
or on a low post and training pending programming. It provides the
master library of HCO PLs, HCOBs, FOs, Bureau Orders and other data
such as books and manuals. It provides the mirage files of all
issues for any and all packs and makes up packs. It also runs off
current mimeo and distributes via Comm Bureau. It also handles and
runs off the actual printing of promotion as in photo offset work.
It also handles publishing actions. Thus its cycle is to provide
people and provide the data to make trained people. It also by
current mimeo keeps existing people informed by mimeo issue lines
and doing the promotion materials. Its keynotes are getting people
and data to train people (CBO 7) 2. the Sea Org Organizing Bureau
is established in Div 7, Flag. It consists of the SO Personnel
Branch, SO Compilations Branch, SO Preparations Branch, and SO
Publishing Branch. The general purpose of this bureau is to
organize Flag, ships and orgs by procuring, transferring and
programming personnel, compiling checksheets and courses, preparing
materials and publishing needful orders, instructions and materials
needful in establishing or stabilizing ships or orgs throughout the
Sea Org. (FO 2473) 3. the ideal scene toward which the Org Bureau
is working is fully manned orgs and the checksheets and materials
necessary to train them for full effectiveness on individual posts
and the checksheets and packs needful to service and train the
public. The products therefore of the Org Bureau are (1) recruited
staff members, (2) the materials with which to fogy train the staff
member on his post, (3) the materials needed to


service and train the public. (CBO 4) 4. the Org Bureau is
primarily concerned with procuring personnel and setting up hats
(checksheets and packs) for that personnel to he trained on. And
then the Org Bureau is concerned with the checksheets and packs for
public courses or services. (CBO 4)


  ORG AUDITING, the purpose of the Ethics Officer is to help Ron
clear orgs and the public if need be of entheta and enturbulation
so that Scn can be done. The activities of the Ethics Officer
consist of isolating individuals who are stopping proper flows by
pulling withholds with ethics technology and by removing as
necessary potential trouble sources and suppressive individuals off
org comm lines and by generally enforcing ethics codes. The trick
of this org auditing is to find a piece of string sticking out -
something one can't understand, and, by interrogatives, pull on it.
A small cat shows up. Pull with some more interrogatives. A baby
gorilla shows up. Pull some more. A tiger appears. Pull again and
wow! You've got a General Sherman tank! (HCO PL 11 May 65, Ethics

  ORG BASIC DATA, insight of Flag's extensive attention on all
organizations, and the need to have a complete viewpoint of each
org, there is additional data required from orgs. This is the org's
basic data. The following data is therefore required from each
organization. The Director of Inspections and Reports is to ensure
that the following data is sent to the Flag Data Bureau, via the
local FOLO, and is kept up to date. (a) the location of the org on
a local map, (b) a population density map of the city where the org
is located, (e) a full, complete floor plan of the organization.
Floor plan must have every space numbered, and each floor has a
letter (a copy of the floor plan with these numbers and letters is
kept by the org). (d) photographs of the org that show the mest of
the org, front entrance of the org, and overall appearance of the
org, (e) copy of the org board that the org is currently operating
on. Any time changes are made in the above, the Director of
Inspections and Reports must ensure full data on the change must be
sent to the Flag Data Bureau. On Flag, the Data Fees I/C must
ensure that each org has a gold file folder with a blue tab
labelled org basic data. In this folder must go the org basic data
and a copy of the org's current program. This folder is located in
the front of the org's current data file folder. (BPL 4 Jun 73)

for that purpose, and the Org Officer of a division is there for
that purpose. He's a product 3 man. (FEBC 5, 7101C23 SO I) 5. in a

is see the Product Officer about past, present and future
production. See the Org Officer about internal matters of

others so they will feed to the nearest major org. It is expected
to send far more to SO reserves than it consumes. (HCO PL 9 Mar 72

increase sales. It includes setting sales targets for each sales
territory, deciding on the scope and timing of advertising
campaigns, where to concentrate or how to distribute one's
marketing effort and sales force, what sales training to implement
in order to increase the efficiency of the sales force, etc.

  PLANNING, SALES PROMOTION, planning which results in a program of
how much sales promotion one needs to engage in and how it will
have to be used in order to meet the sales targets.

  PLANNING SECTION, any section that plans out the future
activities of some aspect of a company but often it is a section
that plans out the work schedules in order to meet a delivery date.

  PLANS CHIEF, (Ship Org Board) in the 2nd Division, which is the
Preparation and Planning Division, we have the Plans Chief in
Department 4, who has the development of ideas and plans for
profitable operation, all ship's plans, drawings, key maps, charts,
planning reference book library, all notes, sketches and copies of
plans, completeness of detail and requirement, and evaluation
activity of them. (FO 1109)

  PLANT, the land, buildings, machinery, installation, etc.,
composing a business. The fixed assets of a business.



  PLANT TOUR, usually a guided tour of the general public or a
select public around a company plant, factory, etc., to increase
public relations or enhance business. It may be part of an open
house event.

  PLAY THE ORG BOARD, a very good executive knows how to play the
org hoard under him. He has to know every function in it. He has to
know who to call on to do what or he disorganizes things badly.
(HCO PL 28 Jul 71)

  PLAY THE PIANO, 1. if a person who could not play a piano sat
down at a piano and hit random keys, he would not get any harmony.
He would get noise. If the head of a division gave orders to his
staff without any regard to their assigned posts or duties, the
result would be confusion and noise. That's why we say a division
head doesn't know how to play the piano when he knows so little
about org form that he continually violates it by giving his
various staff members duties that do not match their hats or posts.
(HCO PL 28 Jul 72) 2. meaning demand the proper duties of the right
posts. (OODs 28 Dec 74) 3. the Executive Director of an org must
play the piano. By this is meant he must ensure all the parts of
the organization are working according to policy. (SO ED 418 INT)
4. if the fellow cannot play the piano (that is to say regulate the
division) why he won't get it producing. (ESTO 11, 7203C06 SO I)

  PLEDGE, 1. the act of a debtor giving a creditor custody of
something qualifying as security or


collateral until a loan or debt is paid or an obligation is
fulfilled. 2. a written agreement or contract whereby a debtor
agrees to turn over such collateral to a creditor including a
statement of any conditions agreed between the parties involved.

  PLEDGED SECURITIES, securities pledged as collateral to guarantee
payment of a debt.


  PLUS-POINT, plus-points are very important in evaluation as they
show where logic exists and where things are going right or likely
to. The following is a list of plus-points which are used in
evaluation. Related facts known (all relevant facts known). Events
in correct sequence (events in actual sequence). Time noted (time
is properly noted). Data proven factual (data must be factual,
which is to say, true and valid). Correct relative importance (the
important and unimportant are correctly sorted out). Expected time
period (events occurring or done in the time one would reasonably
expect them to be). Adequate data (no sectors of omitted data that
would influence the situation). Applicable data (the data presented
or available applies to the matter in hand and not something else).
Correct source (not wrong source). Correct target (not going in
some direction that would be wrong for the situation). Data in same
classification (data from two or more different classes of material
not introduced as the same class). Identities are identical (not
similar or different). Similarities are similar (not identical or
different). Differences are different (not made to be identical or
similar). In doing evaluations to find why things got better so
they can be repeated, it is vital to use the actual plus-points by
name as above. They can then be counted and handled as in the case
of out-points. Plus-points are, after all, what makes things go
right. (HCO PL 3 Oct 74)

  PLUS-POINT EVALUATIONS, a plus-point evaluation shows what boomed
the place and the targets necessary to reassert the boom (OODs 23
Jan 76)

  POA, power of attorney.

  POACHING, unethically procuring trained personnel from other
firms instead of setting up one's own facilities to train

  POINT, a unit of measurement of value in the investment field
where (a) one point = $1 with


reference to shares of stock, (b) one point = $10 with reference to
bonds and (e) one point = one point (not equivalent to $1) with
reference to market averages such as the Dow-Jones industrial
average risking by one point.

  POINT OF INFORMATION, a question put to the chairman of a
conference requests a clarification of a point currently being
discussed or requesting to make a brief statement to clarify such a

  POINT OF ORDER, a question raised by a member as to whether the
agreed upon rules of parliamentary procedures are being followed at
a meeting or conference.

  POINT OF PERSONAL EXPLANATION, a question put to the chat man of
a conference requesting to explain one's personal position related
to an issue in order to clear up any points on which he believes he
has been or will be misunderstood.


  POLICE, to control, regulate, keep order, administer. (BPL 1 Feb
72 I)

  POLICIES, COMPANY, a broad term to cover any rules, procedures or
methods of operation that the top management of an organization has
established as the best means to realize the company's goals and

  POLICIES, COMPANY LABOR, the definite organizational commitments
made by management with respect to its labor force, employment
terms and conditions.

  POLICIES, DEPARTMENTAL, policies which delineate the purpose,
position, procedures, responsibilities, authorities and products of
each department or similar unit in relation to the whole

  POLICIES, MANPOWER, policies with respect to the intentions of
management toward its labor force with specific commitments made in
order to satisfactorily reach stated management/manpower goals

  POLICIES, MARKETING, principles and applicable data guiding the
actions of a company advantageously in dealing with various market

  POLICIES, OPERATING, specific rules or procedures established by
an organization in regard to its methods of operation. These would
chiefly be policies related to maintaining the overall production,
distribution and sales of its products.

  POLICIES, WAGE, the established rules, procedures or methods of
operation that an organization will follow in setting the amount of
wages paid, handling grievances related to wages, or engaging in
any programs or practices relating to wages.

  POLICY, 1. policy as a word has many definitions in current
dictionaries amongst which only one is partially correct: "a
definite course or method of action to guide and determine future
decisions." It is also "prudence or wisdom," "a course of action,"
and a lot of other things according to the dictionary. It even is
said to be laid down at the top. Therefore the word has so many
other measurings that the language itself has become confused. Yet,
regardless of dictionary fog, the word means an exact thing in the
specialized field of management and organization. Policy means the
principle evolved and issued by top management for a specific
activity to guide planning and programming and authorize the
issuance of projects by executives which in turn permit the
issuance and enforcement of orders that direct the activity of
personnel to achieving production and viability. Policy is
therefore a principle by which the conduct of affairs can be
guided. (HCO PL 25 Nov 70) 2. long-range truths or facts which are
not subject to change expressed as operational rules or guides.
(HCO PL 29 Feb 72 II) 3. a pokey is the law on which orders are
authorized and originated. (FO 2627RA) 4. all policies actually
derive no greater or lesser degree from group experience which more
or less adds up to group agreement and policies which tend to stay
along are actually formed with group agreement and are therefore
not outside the perimeter of the group. (7012C04 SO) 5. the rules
of the game, the facts of life, the discovered truths and the
invariable procedures. (HCO PL 29 Feb 72 II) 6. policy is such
things as the organizing board, hats. It is how to write letters.
It is how to get the show on the road, keep it there and handle the
bumps. Policy is the broad general outline originated by top
management. Orders are the instructions issued by the next lower
level of management to get things done that result no products.
(FBDL 12) 7. policy is a growing thing, based on "what has worked."
What works well today becomes tomorrow's policy. (HCO PL 13 Mar 65
II) 8. pokey is derived from successful experience in forwarding
the basic purposes, overcoming opposition or enemies, ending
distractions and letting the basic purpose flow and expand. (HCO


PL 13 Mar 65, Divisions 1, 2, 3 The Structure of Organization What
is Policy?) 9. policy is a guiding thing. It is composed of ideas
to make a game, procedures to be followed in eventualities and
deterrents to departures. The basic pokey of an activity must be
the defining and recommending of a successful and desirable basic
purpose. (HCO PL 13 Mar 65, Divisions 1, 2, 3 The Structure of
Organization What is Policy?) 10. a rule or procedure or a guidance
which permits the basic purpose to succeed. (HCO PL 13 Mar 65,
Divisions 1, 2, 3 The Structure of Organization What is Policy?)
11. political wisdom or cunning; diplomacy; prudence; artfulness.
Wise, expedient, or crafty conduct or management. Any governing
principle, plan or course of action. The last definition is the one
we use. (HCO PL 5 Mar 65 II) 12. a plan of action; way of
management, practical wisdom; prudence. Political skill or
shrewdness. Obsolete - the conduct of public affairs; government.
(HCO PL 5 Mar 65 II) 13. the sense in which we use policy is the
rules and administrative formulas by which we agree on action and
conduct our affairs. (HCO PL 5 Mar 65 II) 14. a method of bringing
about agreement and communication along certain matters which lead
to a higher level of survival. They lead to a higher level of
survival if they are good policies, they lead to a lower level of
survival if they are poor policies and they lead to complete
disaster if they are bad policies. (SH Spec 39, 6409C15) 15. policy
came from years and years of experience. It's the know-how of
handling ores and groups. (OODs 18 Aug 75) 16. that is what makes
the team. It is simply the extant agreement and if there isn't an
extant agreement then you have individualized action. (SH Spec 57,
6504C06) 17. policy is derived from successful actions and is the
agreed upon way that the actions of the group are carried out
successfully. These actions are in written form and are followed
exactly. (BPL 4 Jul 69R VI)

  POLICY KNOWLEDGE BUREAU, the Tech Bureau and Policy Knowledge
Bureau of the GO have just been phased out. Any personnel posted in
the Policy Knowledge Bureau in any Guardian Office are transferred
to the LRH Comm Office. LRH Comms are now responsible for the
correct use and the actual use and application of policy in orgs.
Therefore any GO personnel or materiel or hats on this subject
should be transferred to the Office of the LRH Comm. The main
purpose of this transfer came from an evaluation in which it was
found that policy responsibility was transferred to the Guardian
Office and that this is primarily an internal org function. LRH
Comms are therefore responsible for the tech quality and the exact
application of HCOBs. They are also


responsible for policy knowledge and use. To the degree that policy
letters are in active use in the org, the org expands and prospers.
(LRH ED 205 INT)


  POLICY-MAKING, the act of envisioning the already established
goals and purposes of a business and formulating workable rules,
procedures and methods of operation to attain them now and in the



  POLITICIAN, someone who handles people. Even the word means
"people." (HCO PL 11 May 71 II) POLITICS, the study of ideal social
organization - not, as is so often supposed, the art of staying n
office. It is more the total complex of relations between men in
society. This also includes the people taking part - monarchy,
aristocracy, democracy, socialism, liberalism, conservatism, etc.
(B&C, p. 16)

  POOL, an agreement to eliminate competition between several
companies by agreeing to such things as price control, limited
production or setting up different territories for each to sell
their products in.

  POOL, OUTPUT, an agreement between several companies, usually
engaged in manufacturing the same or similar products, to limit the
amount of a product manufactured and establish how much each will
he allowed to produce.

  POOL, PATENT, a compact among several organizations to share the
use of patents, sometimes directed to having monopoly of a product
and restricting further competition.

  POOL, PRICE AND PROFIT, an agreement between several companies to
set the prices charged for their products and establish what
percentage of the profits each company will receive.

  POOL, TERRITORIAL, an agreement between several companies to
establish separate and exclusive territories where each will market
their goods.

  POPULATION SURVEY, a population survey is very simple to do. All
you are trying to find out is what the public and considers
valuable. (BPL 25 Jan 72R)

  PORT, 1. (a) a town having a harbor for ships (b) the harbor or
waterfront district of a city (c) a place of anchorage or shelter.
(FO 3396) 2. the left-hand side of a ship looking forward toward
the bow, opposite to starboard. (FO 2674)

  PORT CAPTAIN, 1. the Port Captain and his division are
responsible for the PR area control of ports which the ship
frequents or which she plans to visit. His is a ship's Division VI
activity. (FO 3396) 2. a division - Division 6 - was developed
which contains the Ship's Representative and PR terminals external
and internal. This division is headed by the Port Captain. (FO
3392) 3. the original reason for the creation of the post of Port
Captain is to permit the Captain to attend to ship duties and to
unburden him from the strain of maintaining as well full port
relations. When the ship is in port, the Port Captain is in effect
the Captain so far as official cabs, port authorities, social
duties, visitors, crew hats, port flaps and other matters dealing
with shore relations are concerned. (FO 3392) 4. in charge of Div
VII (Flag Contact Division) (FO 2674) 5. Div 6 often makes itself
unpopular with senior execs or the Captain by saddling them
personally with so much PRO parties, calls and personal appearances
that senior execs can't get their job done. The right way is for
Div 6 to have its own Port Captain or "Company Director" who is
ready the social captain or social director. (FO 2171)

  PORT CAPTAIN'S OFFICE, 1. Division Six of Flagship Org. (OODs 11
Oct 73) 2. Port Captain is the office concerned with public
contacts and public relations, ashore and aboard. (FO 2796-13) 3.
works very hard to keep the shore in ever better condition, with
the target of not just safe ports, but of winning countries. (FO
2796-14) 4. is responsible for safe ports for the ship. By standard
actions, it protects the ship so that on board business can occur.
(FO 3121)

  PORTFOLIO, a list of all the stocks, bonds, securities, etc.,
held by an individual investor, bank, investment organization,
etc., the composite holdings themselves.

  PORTMANTEAU, 1. portmanteau - originally a stiff leather bag
divided into sections. Portmanteau word - a word made up from
combination of two words of similar form and meaning, e.g. smog -
smoke and fog. (FO 2519) 2. to jam two or


three missions into one. (7007C15 SO) 3. it means putting every
Hill in the same bag, portmanteauing mission orders, whereby an
organizing mission is also made into an operating mission. (7007C15

  PORT READINESS, port readiness consists of the ship being made
useful in the port, her boats, properly equipped, in the water for
use and her ports, within reason, open and adequate facilities
available. (BO 125, 7 Aug 67)


  PORT WRITE-UPS, a considerable amount of the expertise which
makes a port operation a success can be retained for future use of
the same and other ships provided the know-how obtained on the
first visit is written down. Immediately after a departure from a
port, the following people particularly are required to make
complete write-ups on the port and forward to Supercargo or Ship's
Rep for filing in the port folder. They are Supercargo or Ship's
Rep, Chief Engineer, Transport I/C and Communicator, Purser, Dir
Supply, Dir Accounts, Chief Steward, 1st Mate, Captain/ Conning
Officer, MO, FPO, Hostess, PRO. Anyone else having information on
the port should submit a report also. Information contained in
these reports should be tabulated and very briefly stated, but
should contain every piece of information of note. Examples: price
list of chandler, addresses, pilotage dangers, techniques for
handling specific terminals. (FO 2068)

  POSH OFFICER, officer appointed to inspect and enforce a clean
ship and E/R. He is located in the Port Captain's Office. He also
sets up for events and sees to crew appearance and dress and
cleanliness. (ED 240-7 Flag)


  POSITION, 1. a place or location. It is social standing or
status; rank. It is a post of employment; job. (HCO PL 29 Oct 71
II) 2. a section of a comstation. A slot or box or other receptacle
for a communication. There are seven positions in every comstation:
income, outgo, unack, uncomp, musack, muscomp, and file. (HTLTAE,
p. 122)

  POSITION, in any business it is the name of the particular job
one holds which has its own distinguishing duties, responsibilities
and products in relation to the other jobs in that business; post
title; post; job.

  POSITION GUIDE, chiefly a US term for a job description or hat.

  POSITIONING, old advertising tech is worn out. So in the '70s
they have a new tech called positioning. This means putting a
subject (like shaving cream) into a relative position with other
products. People only remember, they say, by relating one thing to
another." "A position is where you put a product in somebody's life
or mind and in relation to other products." (ED 179 USB)

  POSITIVE CASH FLOW, the desirable situation of more money
inflowing to a person, business, etc., than is being outflowed. The
reverse is called a negative cash flow.

  POSITIVE CONTROL, consists entirely of starting, changing and
stopping. There are no other factors in positive control. If one
can start something, change its position in space or existence in
time and stop it, all at will, he can be said to control it,
whatever it may be. (POW, p. 43)

  POSITIVE POSTULATES, from the viewpoint of positive postulates
there is no negative aspect. You just skip the whole category of
negativism. This has something to do with the granting of
beingness. If you can conceive of a postulate that doesn't also
conceive any negative then you know what I'm talking about when I
talk about a positive postulate. It's not only that there is no
negative given attention to but it does not assume that any
negative is possible. It doesn't pay any attention to negatives. It
isn't in the positive-negative to the degree that there is a
dichotomy. It just is itself. Your determination or intention that
somebody be a good, effective staff member is of course a positive
postulate. It will be ineffective to the degree that you doubt it.
(ESTO 6, 7203C03 SO II)

  POST, 1. a post or terminal is an assigned area of responsibility
and action which is supervised in part by an executive. (HCO PL 28
Jul 71) 2. a position from which a terminal operates in an org,
where one knows that somebody is at. The one holding it is the
stable terminal. (FO 2200) 3. a post in a Scn organization isn't a
job. It's a trust and a crusade. (HCOB 21 Sept 58) 4. a place where
there is a communicator running one or more comstations. (HTLTAE,
p. 122)

  POST BOARD, there are really three forms of org boards. There is
the functioning org board - the org board of functions, and then
there's the org board of posts, and then there's the org board of
complements. Your second form of your board is a post board, that
is to say the posts of the org expressed as posts. They don't have
any name on them. Now that's a post board and it may have holes
underneath these names to label something into but that is just the
posts. (ESTO 8, 7203C04 SO II)

  POSTED, posted does not mean "pinned on a bulletin board." It
means "with the persons who hold the post named on each post." It
goes without saying that the org board is visibly displayed and
known. (OODs 28 Oct 70)

  POSTED FROM THE TOP DOWN, in 1967 I found that an organization
must always be Posted from the top down. This means it cannot be
posted with gaps between the top or lower levels on the org board.
The org, of course, must always have a top and there must not be a
gap between the top and the next lower post or any gaps on the way
down. Example: an org with a CO or ED, no HAS but only a Master at
Arms or Ethics Officer in the HCO Division will not function but
disintegrate. (HCO PL 9 May 74)

  POSTED ORGANIZING BOARD, the main failure in putting names on an
org board is that people take the easy way out and try to put a
different person's name on each title. This gives you a 100 person
division "absolutely vital" while the production is about five man!
You take the names you have now in the division and post those to
cover all the functions and titles. You post from the top down. You
never post from bottom up, and you never leave a gap between
persons on lower posts and higher posts. Either of these faults
will raise hell in the divisions functioning and are grave faults.
Having done this you now have a posted org board. (HCO PL 6 Apr 72)

  POST HAT, 1. hat in which the person's hat write-up by outgoing
persons, policy letters of the post and the data about the post
were kept. (LRH ED 83 INT) 2. (1) complete write-up of post inside
cover of hat, (2) any bulletins dealing with that post arranged
chronologically, (3) all Sec'l EDs about that post arranged
numerically, (4) information about any posts that come under that
post. You may have more than one post hat. (SEC ED 58, 27 Jan 59)

  POSTING, 1. the transfer of transactional data from the hook or
original entry to the book of final entry which usually means from
a journal to the accounts recorded in a ledger. 2. one's position,
job or post in a business.

  POSTING NOTICES, each aide is provided with a pack of forms.
These are called CIC posting notices. While doing his traffic the
Aide notes on a form (one datum = one form) the following types of
info observed on his lines: (1) good (blue), (2) odd (red), (3) bad
(red). Any good bit is written in blue ball point on the posting
notice. Any odd bit (that he can't dig or doesn't make sense) is
written on a posting notice in red bad pont. Any outness found is
written on a posting notice in red bad point. AD these posting
notices are routed to CIC posting. As they arrive in CIC the Admin
Unit (a) staples or pins them on the hoard of their continental
area and (b) puts a pin of matching color in the table map at that
geographical location. (FO 2392)

  POST ORG BOARD, look over your post and you'll see you are
running in it, alone, a little org. Any post has its admin, its
preparatory steps, its address and identity files, its plans of
procedure, its own tech. There are a lot of these. A post is ready
a small org itself. So this is the point we extend the personal org
board over into the post org board. He can then he budged into the
section, the department, the division and the org. (OODs 31 Jan 71)

  POST ROUTINE CHECKLIST, each person in the Sea Org is to make a
list of the actions he/she takes daily on post in a checklist form.
This should help stabilize posts. The hat does not indicate how the
action is taken but simply that it is taken and should he
continued. (FO 2043)

  POSTULATE, it. a self-created truth would be simply the
consideration generated by self. Well, we just borrow the word
which is in seldom use in the English language, we call that
postulate. And we mean by postulate, self-created truth. He posts
something. He puts something up and that's what a postulate is.
(HPC A6-4, 5608C-) -v. n Scn the word postulate means to cause a
thinkingness or consideration. It is a specially applied word and
is defined as causative thinkingness. (POT, p. 71)


  POSTULATE CHECKS, 1. the system of promoting a potential
customer's check against his "postulate" that some time in the near
future the check will be good. And then treating this postulate
check as real and valid income. It presents a false picture of the
actual scene. The postulate check system is admitted nowhere in
policy as an allowable procedure. Nowhere. You concentrate on real
income; not on postulates. (SO ED 114 INT) 2. a check written
against non-existent or inadequate bank balance. A postulate check
is so named because it is written on the postulate that the person
will subsequently be able to obtain the money to cover. It amounts
to nothing more than a promise to pay. It is not money. A postulate
check may be in the form of a counter check or it may be a regular
check made on the person's own check forms. (CO 1 US, 22 May 71)

  POTENTIAL, Potential can be ready money or power or even
strength. (HCO PL 9 Nov 68)

  POTENTIAL EARNINGS, the amount of earnings one has a possibility
of making depending on how much work one accomplishes (especially
in a payment-by-results or commission system), how much work is
available to one, the course of action one takes to secure
earnings, etc.

  POTENTIAL TROUBLE SOURCE, 1. the PTS guy is fairly obvious. He's
here, he's way up today and he's way down tomorrow and he gets a
beautiful session and then he gets terribly id. That's the history
of his life. If you look into his folder, you will look at a folder
summary and you will see that every two or three sessions is a
repair. He can't stay on a program. He goes a little distance up
the Grade Chart then has to be patched up. It looks like Coney
Island - hence rollercoaster. (ESTO 3, 7203C02 SO I) 2. the main
cause of being a potential trouble source is being connected with
persons (such as marital or familial ties) of known antagonism to
Scn. (OODs 4 Jun 71) 3. those who are connected with the
destructively anti-social outside the org. (HCO PL 30 Aug 70) 4.
the mechanism of HIS is envnronmental menace that keeps something
continually keyed in. This can be a constant recurring somatic or
continual, recurring pressure or a mass. The menace in the
environment is not imaginary in such extreme cases. The action can
be taken to key it out. But if the environmental menace is actual
and persists it will just key in again. This gives recurring
pressure unrelieved by usual processing. (HCOB 5 Dec 68) Abbr. PTS.

  POWER, 1. power is being able to do what one is doing when one is
doing it. (HCO PL 3 Apr 72)


2. a person who is hatted can control his post. If he can control
his post he can hold his position in space - in short, his
location. And this is power. When a person is uncertain, he cannot
control his position. He feels weak. He goes slow. (HCO PL 23 Jul
72) 3. law: the power of a thetan stems from his ability to hold a
position in space. This is quite true. In Scientology 8-80 the base
of the motor is discussed. It holds two terminals in fixed
positions. Because they are so fixed, power can be generated. If a
thetan can hold a position or location in space he can generate
power. If he cannot, he cannot generate power and will be weak.
(HCO PL 29 Jul 71) 4. power is proportional to the speed of
particle flow external and internal in an organization. (FO 747) 5.
the rapidity of particle flow alone determines power. (HCO PL 16
Apr 65RA III) 6. power process(es) (LRH ED 103 INT)

  POWER BADGES, all pcs being audited on power processes are to
wear power badges as described below. This badge consists of a 3" x
2" white card with the lettering neatly printed on it in black,
preferably sheathed in plastic. It is to be issued to the pc and
pinned noticeably on a lapel, breast pocket or similar place by pc
administrator at the commencement of his power processing cycle and
collected back when he completes. Text of badge: I am on power
processing. Do not ask me any questions about my case, the
processes or my auditing. (BPL 6 Apr 71)

  POWER CHANGE, 1. the formula of the power change condition is:
when taking over a new post change nothing until you are thoroughly
familiar with your new zone of power. (OODs 5 Apr 70) 2. there are
only two circumstances which require replacement, the very
successful one or the very unsuccessful one. What a song it is to
inherit a successful pair of boots, there is nothing to it, just
step in the boots and don't bother to walk. If it was in a normal
state of operation, which it normally would have been in for
anybody to have been promoted out of it, you just don't change
anything. So anybody wants anything signed that your predecessor
didn't sign, don't sign it. Keep your eyes open, learn the ropes
and depending on how big the organization is, after a certain time,
why, see how it is running and run it as normal operating condition
if it's not in anything but a normal operating condition. Go
through the exact same routine of every day that your predecessor
went through, sign nothing that he wouldn't sign, don't change a
single order, look through the papers that had been issued at that
period of time - these are the orders that are extant, and get as
busy as the devil just enforcing those orders and your operation
will increase and increase. Now the follow who walks into the boots
of somebody who has left in disgrace had better apply the state of
emergency formula to it, which is immediately promote. (HCO PL 23
Sept 67) 3. a state of power change is where you have a company

  POWER CHANGE VIOLATION FORMULA, to all those who had a power
change, we must apply the power change violation formula: (1)
observe, question, and draw up a list of what was previously
successful in your area or zone of control. (2) observe and draw up
a list of all those things that were unsuccessful in your area in
the past. (3) get the successful action in. (4) throw the
unsuccessful action out. (5) knock off frantically trying to cope
or defend. (6) sensibly get back in a working structure. (OODs 4
Apr 70)

  POWER FORMULA, (1) the first law of a condition of Power is don't
disconnect. You can't just deny your connections, what you have got
to do is take ownership and responsibility for your connections.
(2) the first thing you have got to do is make a record of all of
its lines. And that is the only way you will ever be able to
disconnect. So on a condition of Power the first thing you have to
do is write up your whole post. You have made it possible for the
next fellow on to assume the state of power change. If you don't
write up your whole post you are going to be stuck with a piece of
that post since time immemorial and a year or so later somebody
will still be coming to you asking you about that post which you
occupied. (3) the responsibility is write the thing up and get it
into the hands of the guy who is going to take care of it. (4) do
all you can to make the post occupiable. (HCO PL 23 Sept 67)

all practical administration and acts as auditing supervisor. (HCO
PL 13 Dec 64, Saint Hill Org Board)

  PRACTICAL SECTION, (training courses) as it has recently been
found that theory is more easily confronted than doingness, the
practical section is created to care for this fact and to make the
student confront and do accurate don guess. This section may not
then become a second theory section where one studies texts. In the
practical section the student only does. Drills and practical
auditing presence are the whole concentration of this section. Any
study for it is instantly translated into doingness. (HCO PL 14 May

  PRACTICAL SUPERVISOR, 1. the person in charge of the practical

  PR DUTY OFFICER, ships are by experience visited at all times of
the day and night, and since specific PR Department terminals are
likely to be asked for, this has the proven result of these
terminals either giving up the idea of studying, or of being
continually hauled out of study, or of shore terminals being
repulsed or left unattended, and none of these results are good.
Therefore, the PR Duty Officer is established as a Department 4 FSO
(or Ship's Div VI) action. The hat of PR Duty Officer rotates
amongst all Dept 4 personnel, and each person stands one night as
Duty Officer. The function of Duty Officer is to handle anything he
can which comes up for the department. (FO 2864)

  PRE-AUDITING EXAMINATION, there are two examinations on the On
Course. The pre-auditing examination is done after the student has
completed the theory and practical drill sections of the course.

  PREPARED LISTS, many years ago I developed a system called
prepared hats. These isolated the trouble the pc was having in
auditing without taxing anyone's imagination and sending the
auditor into a figure-figure on the pc. These prepared Hats were
assessed on an E-meter. One took up the biggest read first and then
cleaned up all other reads. Time has gone on. The system of
prepared bets has been expanded to include not only pee but
students and staff. It may have gone overlooked that such lists now
include anything that could happen to a pc or student. In other
words, prepared lists have become very thorough. (LRH ED 257 INT)

constructs a display book, and he keeps it added to and up-to-date.
The book is used to get interviews, bookings, press. Usually it is
a loose-leaf big fancy clipping scrapbook. Such a book begins with
an acceptable story of the group creation which is factual and
contains itself PR. There follows press cuttings including photos
as in the press. Such press sections go on and on in the book as
new press occurs so other data is sandwiched in between expanses of
press. Radio and TV appointments or plays are noted or clipped from
papers and pasted in. It is of tremendous use and gets bookings and
interviews with speed. That it is fat is a big recommendation in
itself. No professional PR or booking agent or advance man is ever
without a display book telling of and selling his client. (HCO PL

  PRICE ELASTICITY, a decrease On sales accompanying a price
increase to a product.

  PRICE ENGRAM, it's an awful good thing I found the engram in
organizations before we released the new pattern of orgs and began
to expand. Had I not found it we would have expanded to insolvency!
A few suppressive persons with their "everybody" and "they" have
here and there over the years set up a price engram ridge between
orgs and public. "You charge too much!" "Money." "Prices too high!"
combined with "everybody thinks" and other generalities have made
executives believe that the public won't pay. Not detecting the
true reason for this attack, the executive swallowed it whole. The
true reason is a suppressive reason - if we don't charge we will
vanish. A guilt complex (I won't use a Scn term on anything so low)
arose about money. (HCO PL 27 Apr 65 II)

but it relieves it from what you might call primary evaluation. Now
it doesn't relieve it of evaluation. You'll suddenly find out that
it is very often necessary to evaluate something that went on three
years ago. What did they do? AD right, let's do it. That would be a
staff level or a primary evaluation. But your secondary evaluation
or your operating evaluation (evaluating the org against the MOs
that are being executed and missionaire who is in the org) Is
against the actual conduct of the mission. (7205C18 SO)

overlooked, brings about inaction. The first of these is somebody
there, then worthwhile purpose, then somebody taking responsibility
for the area or action, then form of organization planned wed, then
form of organization held or re-established, then organization
operating. If we have the above "understood" targets we can go on
but if these drop out or are not substituted for then no matter
what targets are set thereafter they will go rickety or fail

we're going to do and this is how we're going to get the product.
They write up the projects and products and plan everything else of
what they're going to do to order to get this thing out and then
they make sure that they keep that machine running that way. The
product officers, which are the secretaries, would be handling the
products which they have to push out. (FEBC 4, 7101C18 SO III) 2.
the Commanding Officer or ED has a conference and that consists of
the divisional secretaries. That is the Product Conference, and
every divisional secretary is himself a product officer. That
Product Conference doesn't even do FP. They eat, thank, sleep, do
nothing but products. (ESTO 1, 7203C01 SO I) 3. the Product
Conference is conducted by the CO or ED (or his deputy). It

would necessarily have to change its name. Ready it's an Action
Branch of the Production Bureau if you want to be very precise. I
don't think you need necessarily call them branches. I ready can't
see somebody writing a letter from the Production Bureau,
Management Branch and expecting very many people to follow it. But
the Management Bureau; somebody might answer that. (7012C04 SO)

Communicator is to call in the six division secretaries, and
carefully checks them out on the points in the program, and what
action is to be taken, in such a way that the open line to Saint
Hill and Ron is quite apparent. The drill on this is done in this
fashion. (1) first of all, the HCO Communicator checks the Division
head on duplication of the communication - that is, questions
calculated to assess if the Division Sec has read the comm and
knows what it said. (2) Then the Communicator asks the Division Sec

is to evaluate their orgs using the multiple Viewpoint Data System
and make programs up for the orgs based on the evaluations. (AD
programs and projects come from evaluations. They are the handling

holes in it of any kind. Advising the status of a target or any bug
in it is also a duty. Debugging a target that seems slow is a duty.
Pgms Chiefs have the additional duties of getting in reports,
answering reports and doing Ed al 3 when aides don't provide pgms.
(CBO 291) 2. the Programs Chief for an org or area is also
responsible for the overall stats of that org, like the ED, but is

the category of project would come orders, work projects, etc.
These are a series of guiding steps which if followed will result
no a full and successful accomplishment of the program target. (HCO
PL 29 Feb 72 II) 2. the program is the big solution to a problem -
the big problem IS solved by a big solution called a program. The
little problems inside that big solution are solved by projects.
And inside the projects the littler-littler problems are solved by
orders. (FO 2192) 3. if something requires more than two weeks to
do it is a project. (HCO PL 1 May 65 II) Abbr. Pjt.

  PROJECT 80, a breakthrough on basic auditing which changes
organization targets. This technical advance makes many other
things possible. We will designate the broad application to Central
Org planning and dissemination, Project 80. Essentially what has
happened is that I have found the minimum essentials of why
auditing works, and have selected out the important parts for
concentration. These parts are: (1) (in Scientology One and Two)
the itsa line; (2) (in Scientology Two) tone arm action; (8) (in
Scientology Two) directing the pc's attention to those things which
bar him from release and Clear; and (4) (in Scientology Three and
Four) directing the pc's attention to handling those things which
bar him from OT. (HCO PL 21 Aug 63)

  PROJECT BOARD, the LRH Communicator keeps a project board. Every
project or order or directive or SEC ED issued is noted on this
board; by routine and regular inspection personally and by dispatch
the LRH Communicator sees to it that each and every order and
project is eventually complied with or acknowledged. (HCO PL 27 Dec



  PROJECT FORCE MAA, the most upstat member of the project force is
appointed the Project Force MAA. The PF MAA musters the crew,
conducts any exercises, does investigations as needed and is also a
terminal for the members of the project force and acts upon request
as a liaison between other project force members and crew in the
Estates Section. (FO 3165)

  PROJECT FORCES, the purpose of the project force is to increase
the person's confront of most and his ability to complete cycles of
action - thus creating an able Sea Org member. The motto of the
project force is: one time-one job-one place. The project force
works as a team to handle an area that needs handling under an
in-charge as appointed by the head of the project force. (FO 3165)
Abbr. PF.


  PROJECT LEDGER, a record of the planned and actual costs of a
project with notations of any departures from the budget.

  PROJECTION, 1. in statistics, the process of extending
mathematical figures beyond the point where there is observable
data. 2. any prediction of occurrences or outcomes based on
extending current and past trends into the future.


  PROJECT MISSION OPERATIONS, a new post is created in Action. The
title of the post is Project Mission Operations. Even when a set of
orders are called mission orders, they are really Project Orders.
These are such orders as a premises mission, a logistics mission,
etc. They are not production missions going out to handle ergs and
activities and get them producing. There are also straight Flag
Project Orders. These are very dangerous to leave to the operation
of an aide or executive as they forget them or are slow on them.
Such FPJOs are far better in the hands of Action. On-board missions
would also be handled by Project Mission Operations. (CBO 345)

  PROJECT MISSIONS, a work party or an assembly of materials
project is commonly sent out under an I/C. The key here is that a
job must be done that would overload existing terminals and so a
project order is written to do it and MOs are then written to take
steps to get it done. There are therefore two parts to a project
mission. To do the work outlined and to do the mission. If one had
a project order one would merely have to write MOs giving the
actions necessary to get the project actions done. If one doesn't
have a project one then Incorporates the project into the MOs as
targets. (FO 2936)

  PROJECT ORDERS, these are such orders as a premises mission, a
logistics mission, etc. They are not production missions going out
to handle orgs and activities and get them producing. Even when a
set of orders are called mission orders, they are ready project
orders. (FO 3485) Abbr. PJOs.

  PROJECT PLANNING OFFICER, (Gung-Ho Group) the Project Planning

  PROMISSORY NOTE, an unconditional written promise, signed by the
maker, to pay a specified amount of money on demand or at a certain
date and/or place, either to the bearer or to a designated person.

  PROMO ORDERS MANAGER, (Pubs US) it is the job of this post to
know what orgs and missions have in stock in way of LRH promo and
to encourage reorders of same in adequate quantities. (SO ED 16
Pubs US)

  PROMO SCHEDULING BOARD, 1. every Department of Promotion must
have and use a promo scheduling board. A promo scheduling board is
used so the cycle of action for all promo pieces is visible from
start to finish. The scheduling board is large and subdivided unto
the following vertical columns: product, survey, idea, dummy, I/A,
assembly, FP, proofs checked and print, I/A (quality check), mail,
review results. A card with the product to be promoted and its
mailing deadline is posted under the product column. (BPL 1 Nov 71
I) 2. a promo scheduling board is used by Dept 4 so it can be seen
at a glance what is happening to each promo piece and if any
lagging to increase production so ETAs are met. (LRH ED 159R-1 INT)

  PROMOTER, a person who undertakes to organize a new company or
business venture and who sells the shares or securities that will
obtain the capital necessary or otherwise obtains the needed
financial backing.

  PROMOTION, 1. means, to make something known and thought well of.
In our activities it means to send something out that will cause
people to respond either in person or by their written order or
reply to the end of applying Scn service to or through the person
or seeing Scn commodities, all to the benefit of the person and the
solvency of the org. (HCO PL 20 Nov 65R) 2. promotion is making
things known. It's getting things out. It's getting one's self
known. It's getting one's products out. (SH Spec 62, 6505C25) 3.
promotion consists of getting names and addresses and contacting
them and offering service to get them an. The more names, the more
contacts, the more people. (HCO PL 15 Mar 65 I) 4. accumulation of
the identities of persons. This is done by getting hats of names,
by personal contact, etc., and offering those identities something
they will buy, a book or a service. Dissemination and salesmanship
are ready promotion. (HCO PL 21 Jan 65) 5. when routing
arrangements are made or communication invited from org to public
and public to org, we call it promotion. (HCO PL 17 Nov 64) 6.
promotion is the art of offering what will be responded to. (HCO PL
7 Mar 64) 7. promotion consists only of what to offer and how to
offer it, that will be responded to. That's the extent of it. (HCO
PL 7 Mar 64) 8. by promotion in a Scn organization, we mean reach
the public. (HCO PL 26 Aug 59) 9. poor promotion gives you a ratio
of maybe 98% outflow and 2% inflow, i.e. 98 pieces of mail (of all
kinds) mailed and 2 pieces of mail (of all kinds) received. Fair
promotion would perhaps consist of 90% outflow and 10% inflow,
meaning that for 90 pieces of mail (of all kinds) mailed by the
org, 10 pieces of mail (of all kinds) were received. Fantastically
wonderful promotion would consist of 50% outflow, 50% inflow. A
miracle would be 10% outflow and 90% inflow. No exact index or
chart of this has ever been made. But the above is an educated
guestimate. The figures are given to make the following point: the
better the promotion, the higher the inflow rises in proportion to
the outflow. (HCO PL 7 Mar 64)

  PROMOTION, 1. the advancement of a person in rank, position or
status. A promotion implies giving a person added duties,
responsibilities or authorities usually accompanied by an increase
in wages. 2. advertising designed to increase a public's knowledge,
liking or desire for a product or service.


  PROMOTION ACTIVITIES, these two things (how he gets the book and
how he is offered further service) are the whole of promotion
activities. Promotion is never aimed at anything else regardless of
how it is done. The ideas used in promotion must (a) get books into
the hands of people in the public, and (b) offer such persons
service, (e) offer such persons already sold lower services, higher
services. There is nothing more to it. (HCO PLY Apr 65 IV)

oversees all such steps. (CBO 7) 2. its job is to log for
compliance, enforce compliance, get data, relay data, inspect,
relay inspection data on ad promotional activities. The Promotion
Bureau is an extension of Flag comm lines to enforce compliance and
get data on all promotional activities. It is very dike an LRH Comm
Network, only specialized into promotion. It does not originate
orders but implements orders. Any demanding emergency or situation
is handled by implementing existing orders or policy. The Promotion
Bureau acts solely on the authority of Flag as it is not
autonomous. It contains a PR Branch. Promotion Branch, Public
Services Branch, and Sales Branch. (CBO 26)

  PROMOTION, DIRECT RESPONSE, sales promotion method that calls for
a direct response from the reader or recipient as when an order
blank, reply card or telephone number is incorporated in the

supermarkets where he gives prizes to those consumers who are
buying that product or can recite a jingle connected to the
product, etc.

  PROMOTION PROGRAM NO. 1, Promotion Program No. 1 is designed to
collect all addresses and data for our CF. (HCO PL 25 Jan 64)

  PROPAGANDA, the systematic dissemination of a given doctrine or
beliefs that puts forth strong views and often self-interests no
such a manner as to proselytize.

interest to PR practitioners. The trick is - words are redefined to
mean something else to the advantage of the propagandist. (HCO PL 5

  PSYCHIATRY, psychology and psychiatry were developed chiefly by a
Russian veterinarian named Ivan Petrovich Pavlov (1349-1936) His
basic principle was that men were only animals and could be
conditioned and trained much like dancing bears or dogs. This work
was only intended to control people and so has found great favor
with certain rulers and upper classes. None of the activities of
psychology or psychiatry were designed to help or cure, only to
control the masses. The results of psychiatry are physically
damaging, consisting of various brutalities and often injure the
patient for life or kill him outright. There have never been any
cures listed or claimed for psychiatric treatment as its interest
lies only in control. (HCO PL 23 May 69)

  PSYCHIC, spiritual. (BPL 24 Sept 73 V)

  PSYCHOLOGICAL NEED, a fancied need based upon a mental concept or
attitude one has as distinguished from a basic need which will
actually affect or increase one's survival.

  PSYCHOLOGY, 1. Webster's International Dictionary of the English
language 1829 defines "psychology: a discourse or treatise on the
human soul; the doctrine of the nature and properties of the soul."
Webster's High School Dictionary 1892, "psychology: the powers and
function of the soul." Merriam Webster's 3rd International
Dictionary 1961, "psychology: the science of mind or mental
phenomena or activities; the study of the biological organism (as
man) and the physical and social environment." Somewhere along the
way, man lost his soul! We pinpoint when and we find Professor
Wundt, 1879, being urged by Bismarck at the period of German's
greatest militarism, trying to get a philosophy that will get the
soldiers to kill men, and we find Hegel, the "great" German
philosopher, the idol of super-Socialists, stressing that war is
vital to the mental health of people. Out of this we can redefine
modern psychology as a German military system used to condition men
for war and subsidized in American and other universities at the
time the government was having trouble with the draft. A reasonable
discourse on why "they" had to push psychology would of course be a
way of redefining an already redefined word, psychology. (HCO PL 5
Oct 71) 2. you're either trying to create or generate, handle,
control and so forth, human emotion and reaction. The whole field
of public relations, no matter how many little compartments it's
got is actually occupying that zone and area, and that is the
subject if you've got to have one called psychology. (FEBC 2,
7101C15 SO I) 3. mainly used for testing aptitude or Intelligence.
It has counseling as part of its activities but is more concerned
with and financed for warfare. (HCO PL 23 May 69)

  PSYCHOSIS, 1. we know what psychosis is these days. It is simply
an evil purpose; it means a definite obsessive desire to destroy.
Now anybody has a few evil purposes when they suddenly think of
this or that, that they don't want to do. They'd say "Boy I'd like
to get even with that guy" or something. That's not what we're
really talking about. This is the monitoring evil purpose which
monitors all of this guy's activities, and that is a real psycho.
Now there are people who are PTS and who act fairly psycho and
there are people who are quote "aberrated." They've simply got
out-points in their thinking. The psychiatrist never differentiated
amongst these people. That's because he thought people had a
disease celled mental illness. It is not true. There is no such
thing as a mental illness. There is no bacteria which produces
psychosis. (EST/) 3, 7203C02 SO I) 2. if he's real crazy he can't
see anything. He's just got to fight. Well, if you knew what he was
fighting you wouldn't feel so sorry for him. He's back there on the
track a few trillion years fighting the Ugbugs. He's solving a
present time problem which hasn't in actual fact existed for the
last many trillenia in most cases, and yet he is taking the actions
in present time which solve that problem with the Ugbugs. What the
devil is that all about? Well the guy is totally stuck in present
time. He's got 99.999999999% of his attention units at some past
period of the track. An exact precise period of the track. And In
that precise exact instant he is fighting off something and is
trying to handle something by some means and those are the means
and practices which he is using in present time. He does not have
any problem with you. You do not have any problem with him at all.
You aren't back there where he is and he isn't up where you are.
Now you can assume there are problems, but that isn't the problem
he's trying to solve. That is the whole anatomy of psychosis. (SH
Spec 61, 6505C13) 3. Dwindling sanity is a dwindling ability to
assign time and space. Psychosis is a complete Inability to assign
time and space. (Scn 8-80, p. 44)

  PSYCHOSOMATIC ILLNESS, physical illness, aches, pains, continual
exhaustion, body malfunctions are created or held in an unchanging
state by the mind. This us called psychosomatic (psycho-spirit,
somatic-body) illness. (HCO PL 23 May 69)

  PSYCHOSOMATIC INTENSIVE, standard Dn will let a person recuperate
from illness or injury and it will handle beginnings of illness and
it will end off chronic illnesses. These add up to recuperation
intensives and psychosomatic intensives and all this is HCOB 24
July 1969, Seriously PI Preclears and a five-hour intensive. (LRH
ED 57 INT)

  PSYCHOTICS, people with histories of known breaks, of suicide
attempts, of homicidal tendencies. (HCO PL 2 Sept 70, Instruction
Protocol of Facial)

  PTSNESS, PTSness is actually a PTP (present time problem) and
causes roller coaster as it is difficult to audit over a PTP or
work either. (LRH ED 241 INT)

  PTS PERSONS, those who are connected to suppressive persons or
groups and are potential trouble sources. (HCO PL 28 May 72)

  PTSRD CORRECTION LIST, HCO Bulletin 16 April 1972, PTS RD
Correction List. It also gives the expected actions of a PTS
Rundown. Doing PTS Rundowns without this prepared fist handy can be
risky. (LRH ED 257 INT) PTS TYPE ONE, the SP on the case is right m
present time actively suppressing the person. Type One is normally
handled by an Ethics Officer in the course of a hearing. (HCOB 24
Nov 65)


  PTS TYPE TWO, Type Two is harder to handle than Type One, for the
apparent suppressive person in present time is only a restimulator
for the actual suppressive. The pc who isn't sure, won't
disconnect, or still roller-coasters, or who doesn't brighten up,
can't name any SP at all is a Type Two. (HCOB 24 Nov 65)

  PTS TYPE THREE, the Type Three PTS is mostly in institutions or
would be. In this case the Type Two's apparent SP is spread all
over the world and is often more than all the people there are -
for the person sometimes has ghosts about him or demons and they
are just more apparent SPs but imaginary as beings as well. (HCOB
24 Nov 65)

  PTS TYPE A, persons intimately connected with persons (such as
marital or familial ties) of known antagonism to mental or
spiritual treatment or Scn. In practice such persons, even when
they approach Scn in a friendly fashion, have such pressure
continually brought to bear upon them by persons with undue
influence over them that they make very poor gains in processing
and their interest is solely devoted to proving the antagonistic
element wrong. They, by experience, produce a great deal of trouble
in the long run as their own condition does not improve adequately
under such stresses to effectively combat the antagonism. Their
present time problem cannot be reached as it is continuous, and so
long as it remains so, they should not be accepted for auditing by
an organization or auditor. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE B. criminals with proven criminal records often continue
to commit so many undetected harmful acts between sessions that
they do not make adequate case gains and therefore should not be
accepted for processing by organizations or auditors. (HCO PL 27
Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE C, persons who have ever threatened to sue or embarrass
or attack or who have publicly attacked Scn or been a party to an
attack and all their immediate families should never be accepted
for processing by a Central Organization or an auditor. They have a
history of only serving other ends than case gain and commonly
again turn on the organization or auditor. They have already barred
themselves out by their own overts against Scn and are thereafter
too difficult to help, since they cannot openly accept help from
those they have tried to injure. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE D, responsible-for-condition cases have been traced back
to other causes for their


condition too often to be acceptable. By responsible-for-condition
cases is meant the person who insists a book or some auditor is
"wholly responsible for the terrible condition I am in." Such cases
demand unusual favors, free auditing, tremendous effort on the part
of auditors. Review of these cases show that they were in the same
or worse condition long before auditing, that they are using a
planned campaign to obtain auditing for nothing, that they are not
as bad off as they claim, and that their antagonism extends to
anyone who seeks to help them, even their own families. Establish
the rights of the matter and decide accordingly. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE E, persons who are not being audited on their own
determinism are a Lability as they are forced into being processed
by some other person and have no personal desire to become better.
Quite on the contrary they usually want only to prove the person
who wants them audited wrong and so do not get better. Until a
personally determined goal to be processed occurs, the person will
not benefit. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE F. persons who "want to be processed to see if Scn
works" as their only reason for being audited have never been known
to make gains as they do not participate. News reporters fall into
this category. They should not be audited. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE G. persons who claim.that "if you help such and such a
case" (at great and your expense) because somebody is rich or
influential or the neighbors would be electrified should be
ignored. Processing is designed for bettering individuals, not
progressing by stunts or giving cases undue importance. Process
only at convenience and usual arrangements. Make no extraordinary
effort at the expense of other persons who do want processing for
normal reasons. Not one of these arrangements has ever come off
successfully as it has the unworthy goal of notoriety, not
betterment. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE H. persons who "have an open mend" but no personal hopes
or desires for auditing or knowingness should be ignored, as they
really don't have an open mind at all, but a lack of ability to
decide about things and are seldom found to be very responsible and
waste anyone's efforts "to convince them." (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE I, persons who do not believe anything or anyone can get
better. They have a purpose for being audited entirely contrary to
the auditor's and so in this conflict, do not benefit. When such
persons are trained they use their training to degrade others. Thus
they should not be accepted for training or auditing. (HCO PL 27
Oct 64)

  PTS TYPE J. persons attempting to sit in judgment on Scn in
hearings or attempting to investigate Scn should be given no undue
importance. One should not seek to instruct or assist them in any
way. This includes judges, boards, newspaper reporters, magazine
writers, etc. All efforts to be helpful or instructive have done
nothing beneficial as they first idea is a firm "I don't know" and
this usually ends with an equally firm "I don't know." If a person
can't see for himself or judge from the obvious, then he does not
have sufficient powers of observation even to sort out actual
evidence. In legal matters, only take the obvious effective steps -
carry on no crusades in court. In the matter of reporters, etc., it
is not worthwhile to give them any time contrary to popular belief.
They are given their story before they leave their editorial rooms
and you only strengthen what they have to say by saying anything.
They are no public communication line that sways much. Policy is
very definite. Ignore. (HCO PL 27 Oct 64)

usually directs public attention more specifically to the features
of a product or service.

Flagship Org. Thus the two Div 6's had deferent responsibilities
and it was at this point that the Flagship Div 6 began to develop
and specialize on the subject of public contact. The div head took

should be a public Programs Officer. His hat is to organize and
coordinate Gung-Ho Groups. He gets them


started. His job takes him into the field contacting FSMs,
Scientologists and the general public (especially those connected
to other groups in the community). The Public Programs Of fleer
having recruited the group together, has the group do a survey from
door to door, etc., to discover the targets and purposes of the
community in the area. The Public Programs Officer never makes up
programs. He gets the Gung-Ho Group to put together programs (which
are composed of short-range targets given to fellow groups to do to
achieve the target found in the survey). (HCO PL 30 Dec 68)

  PUBLIC PROMOTION, the mock-up of effective promotion pieces, that
get made up and printed by Dissem, and the distribution to attract
floods of new public into the org. Every piece has to be based on
survey and must address the right public. Such items are:

as feasible to their first major service in Scn at which point they
are a new name to CF. (LRH ED 112 INT) 2. the Public Registrar is
the entrance point to Dn and Scn services and thus it is a post of
great importance. At least one Public Reg must be on post and
producing from within the org. By producing is meant contacting the
public in volume and using the proper recommended sales techniques

starts Div 2 produced, only the public Reg in Div 6. No paid start
can be included on both Div 2 and Div 6 paid start stats. Whoever
got the paid start gets the stat and not the other division. Paid
start for processing = on HGC lines. Paid start for training =
started on course. Each service paid for and started is counted as
one paid start. If a person signs up and pays for a number of
services, say Academy Levels 0-IV, he is counted as one paid start
as each Academy Level is started. Similarly, if a person signs up
and pays for a number of 12-1/2 hour intensives with the Public
Registrar as each paid intensive is begun, it is counted as one
paid start. When a person pays and starts a public service like HAS
or HQS it is counted as one paid start. (HCO PL 23 Nov 71R II)

  PULL A FEW STRINGS, meaning follow down a chain of out-points.
(HCO PL 30 Sept 73 II)

  PULL A STRING, 1. two facts don't jibe so you try to rationalize
these two facts and interrogate on these two facts. You will get
another point you don't understand. When you try to get this point
understood you win now find another fact that you don't understand
and along about that way someplace pulling on this string you fund
the General Sherman tank and that is simply somebody who is trying
to stop things. (6711C18) 2. an Ethics Officer's first job is
usually cleaning up the org of its potential trouble sources and
requesting a Committee of Evidence for the suppressives. That gets
things in focus quickly and smooths an org down so it win function.
Then one looks for down statistics in the OIC charts. These aren't
understandable, of course, so one interrogates by sending
Interrogatives to the people concerned. In their answers there will
be something that doesn't make sense at all to the Ethics Officer.
Example: "We can't pay the bills because Josie has been on course."
The Ethics Officer is only looking for something he himself can't
reconcile. So he sends Interrogatives to the person who wrote it
and to Josie. Sooner or later some wild withhold or even a crime
shows up when one does this. The trick of this "org auditing" is to
find a piece of string sticking out - something one can't
understand, and, by


interrogatives, pull on it. A small eat shows up. Pull with some
more interrogatives. A baby gorilla shows up. Pull some more. A
tiger appears. Pull again and wow! You've got a General Sherman
tank! (HCO PL 11 May 66, Ethics Officer Hat)

  PUTTING A HEAD ON A PIKE, ethics only exists to hold the fort
long enough and settle things down enough to get technology in. We
start to hang people and keep right on tying the noose in a
workmanlike fashion right up to the instant we can get tech in -
which of course makes the noose unnecessary. When things are bad
(bad indicators heavily visible) putting a body on the gallows is
very salutary. We call it "putting a head on a pike." Too many bad
Indicators and too goofed up a situation and we must pot a head on
a pike. Then things simmer down and we can begin to get tech in.

the motions of the vessel during a heavy sea. (FSO 654)

  READINESS FOR THE SEA DRILL, an all hands evolution: the Captain
before sailing requires from each of the rest of the ship's company
a report on the readiness of the area of operation for a voyage at
sea of expressed duration into an expressed climate. These reports
are not vague, they are made on a basis of prepared checklists. The

  REALTY, same as real estate.

  REAL WHY, 1. the basic why is always the major out point which
has all other out-points as a common denominator, and that's the
real why. That explains everything. But what is this everything?
All the other out-points. What is this major out-point that
explains all other out-points that I've found in this area? And
that could be the definition of a why. (ESTO 12, 7203C06 SO II) 2.
a real why opens the door to handling. If it does not, then it is a
wrong why. When you have a right why, handling becomes simple. The
more one has to beat his brains for a bright idea to handle, the
more likely it is that he has a wrong why. The why win be how come
the situation is such a departure from the ideal scene and win open
the door to handling. (HCO PL 12 Aug 74)

  REASONABLENESS, 1. illogic occurs when one or more data is
misplaced into the wrong body of data for it. An example would be
"Los Angeles smog is growing worse so we fined New York." "I am
sorry, madam, but you cannot travel first class on a third class
passport." Humanoid response to such displacements is to be
reasonable. A new false datum is dreamed up and put Into the body
of data to explain why that datum is included. (Reasonableness is
often inserted as explanation of other out-points also) In the smog
one, it could be dreamed up that New York's exports or imports were
causing L.A. smog. In the train one, it could he inserted that in
that country, passports were used instead of tickets. (HCO PL 23
June 70) 2. faulty explanations. (HCO PL 30 Aug 70) 3. a staff
member or executive can be "reasonable" and accept reasons why
something cannot be done, accept incomplete cycles as complete, and
fail to follow through and get completions. All of which results in
further traffic. (BPL 30 Jan 69) 4. an objective can always be
achieved. Most usually, when it is not being achieved, the person
is finding counter-intention in the environment which coincides
with his own (this is reasonableness), and his attention becomes
directed to his own counter-intention rather than to his objective,
i.e. he has interiorized unto the situation. (FO 2116) 5. you can
safely say that being reasonable is a symptom of being unable to
recognize out-points for what they are and use them to discover
actual situations. (HCO PL 30 Sept 73 II)

  RELIABLE SOURCE, two bad systems are in current use on data. The
first is "reliable source". The other system in use is multiple
report. In this system (reliable source) a report is considered
true or factual only if the source is well thought of. This is a
sort of authority system. Most professionals working with data
collection use this. Who said it? If he is considered reliable or
an authority, the data is considered true or factual. Sources are
graded from A to D. A is highest, D lowest. The frailty of this
system is at once apparent. Philby, as a high British intelligence
official, was a Russian spy for 30 years. Any data he gave the U.K.
or U.S. was "true" because he was a "reliable source." He had every
Western agent who was being sent into Communist areas "fingered"
and shot. Psychiatrists are "authorities" on the mind. Yet insanity
and criminality soar. They are the "reliable sources" on the mind.

make them is they drop some ink on one side of a sheet of paper and
then they fold the paper over and then open it up again, and then
now they've got ink blots on both sides and that makes an ink blot
and then you're supposed to look at the ink blot and see what you
see in it. If anybody ever gave you one of these things don't ever
bother to answer much and say I don't see anything in it, it
absolutely ruins the test, or say it's ink and a piece of paper.
Actually it was a child's game. Now most of these tests and so on

scheduling and sending through work.

  ROUTINE MISSIONS, most missions fall into the category of routine
missions. These would be missions which accomplished the routine
actions of Flag - such as the corporate matters of Flag or AOs,
improving AO or org status or conditions, AO or org finance, tech
or ethics matters, etc. They may partly include logistics matters,
but their major targets do not. They are concerned with the more

standard and routine actions of Flag, AOs, orgs or the Sea Org
itself. Inspection missions fall under this category. (FO 2132)

  ROUTINE OPERATING COSTS, those are title C mest and routine
services and costs. (Laundry and garbage removal, food, fuel,
water, wages, supplies, etc.) (FSO 551)

  ROUTING, 1. this means pointing out the channels on which bodies,
materials, products or dispatches and letters flow or making
channels on which such things can flow and putting terminals there
to handle or change them. (HCO PL 27 Feb 72) 2. routing consists of
forwarding a proper communication to its proper destination or,
more pertinent to an executive, indicating how types of dispatches
are routed to staff members who route org dispatches. (HCO PL 17
Nov 64)

Information Clerk in Ext HCO (1) greets the new recruit and logs
his name, the date and org that recruited him, in the recruit log
book. (2) gives him an R-factor on what tests and routing forms he
win be required to do. (3) has the new recruit complete his Routing
and Information Form Part I, in duplicate, if he has not yet done
this with the recruiter. (4) gives the new recruit a battery of
tests (IQ, Leadership, Aptitude, OCA). (5) body routes the new
recruit to the FPPO or FPPO Comm. (FO 3466R-1)

  ROUTING FORM, 1. the form that lists the org terminals the pc has
to check through in order to arrive in the HGC and in the auditing
chair. (BTB 3 Nov 72R) 2. when particles arrive at the org space
proper they must be routed and must continue to be routed from the
moment they enter until they leave the org space. Thus there must
be a reception for bodies, for mail, for phone, for telexes and for
messages in general. There must also be an exit point for all these
things and someone to send them on their way Ott of the org space.
Once the particle (body, dispatch, raw materials, whatever) is at
the door reception must establish the routing. This is done usually
with each step signed off Routing Form that gives the full road map
of the particle. (HCO PL 25 Jul 72)

  ROUTING PROPERLY, by routing properly is meant to see that
everyone around them routes properly. Forwarding something already
improperly routed creates dev-t and fails to handle misrouting
where it is occuring. (HCO PL 17 Nov 64)

  ROUTING SECTION, section in Dept 1, Department of Routing,
Appearances and Personnel. Routing Section writes and issues Body
Routing Forms, has reception events log of org, sees that reception
is a promotional contact for books and literature, logs phonecalls
and logs people into and out of org. (HCO PL 17 Jan 66 II)

RPF assignment amusing, an award and was therefore unable to
recognize a need for redemption or any means to effect it. Until
such time as the person recognized this need and of their own
self-determinism requested to he included in RPF redemption

  RUDIMENTS OF AN ORG, for some time, I have been advocating that
you get one piece of organizational data in before you do another.
This has been a very rewarding action. Orgs have become better off
at once by doing this. Therefore, let's call it rudiments of an
org, and have the HCO Area Sec get them in one at a time all the
while the Exec Dec is keeping things running. You get in one simple
thing. Then you get in another. An org is composed of two factors.
These are technical and administration. These must never get out of
balance, in either personnel numbers or programs.


Therefore when getting to org rudiments, you always get one in in
Tech and one in in admin at the same time. (HCO PL 11 Dec 61RA)

  RUIN, before you can save someone from ruin, you must find out

be made real to him. (HCO PL 23 Oct 65) RULE 28, This refers to

of course anybody can issue an order if there is a project which is
derived from a program which is derived from a plan which is
directly derived from policy. Policy is no good unless it is
derived from a pm pose. Skip having any plan at all if it doesn't

  SCHIZOPHRENIA, 1. the most prevalent "mental disorder" is
supposed to be schizophrenia. This means "scissors" or two plus
"head." A two-head In other words. And in this case two heads are
not better than one (joke). You see this in institutions. A person
is changing valences (personalities) click-click-click, one to the
next. But the condition is a gradient one that worsens between
sanity and the bottom of the scale. Midway, the condition is common
but almost never noticed. It is so common today that it passes as
normal humanoid. The person is not doing what he is doing. Examples
of this are: people who do not like a job with responsibility
because they "like to do mechanical things so they can dream of
something else before they can ; persons who are out of area;
persons who continually make dev-t. There is also the person who
rams sideways into the work of others with "mistakes", "demands"
and prevents them from doing what they are doing while himself not
doing what he is doing. One can't say these people are crazy. Not
today. But one can say they make problems, which are very difficult
unless you know how to unlock the riddle. (HCO PL 3 Apr 72) 2. a
withdrawal from reality. (7202C22 SO) 3. schizophrenia is the HO

  SCIENTOLOGIST, 1. someone who can better conditions. A
Scientologist then, is essentially one who betters the conditions
of himself and the conditions of others by using Scn technology. Of
course, there are lots of "do-gooders" and people trying to better
conditions, but the difference between them and a Scientologist is
that the Scientologist is the one who knows how. He is equipped
with far superior know-how. He is in much better shape than the
person on the street. (BPL 21 Oct 71 I) 2. an individual interested
in Scn. Disseminates and assists Scientologists. (HCO PL 21 Oct 66

or Dianeticist" means any person who has completed any Scn or Dn
course or 12-1/2 hour intensive and who is a member of the church.
The "produce" means with case in a reasonable period of time. The 4
products of a Scientologist are: (a) purchased books, (b)
disseminated knowledge, (e) environmental control, (d) a cleared
planet (or in other words to break it down: new Scientologists or
Dianeticists). (HCO PL 28 Nov 71R II)

  SCIENTOLOGY, 1. the word Scientology is one which you might say
is anglicized. It comes from the Latin Scio and the Greek Logos,
with Scio the most emphatic statement of know we had in the Western
world. And ology (from Logos) of course means "study of." Scio is
"knowing in the fullest sense of the word" and the Western world
recognizes in it and in the word science something close to a
truth. (PXL, p. 1) 2. a religion in the oldest sense of the word, a
study of wisdom. Scn is a study of man as a spirit in his
relationship to life and the physical universe. It is
non-denominational. By that is meant that Scn is open to people of
all religions and beliefs and in no way tries to persuade a person
from his religion, but assists him to better understand that he is
a spiritual being. (BPL 6 Mar 69) 3. a religious practice applying
to man's spoilt and his spiritual freedom (HCO PL 6 Apr 69) 4. the
ability to change condition. The technology of how you change. (SH
Spec 57, 6604C06) 5. Scn as practiced by the Church of Scientology
is a spiritual and religious guide intended to make persons more
aware of themselves as spiritual beings restoring respect for self
and others and not treating or diagnosing of human ailments of body
or mind nor engaged in the teaching or practicing of the medical
arts or sciences. (BPL 24 Sept 78RA XIII) 6. not the field of the
human mind, Scn is the overall science which also includes the
human mind. (5410C04) 7. Scn assumes that every man can be more
able than he is and then goes ahead with very precise techniques to
make him so. (5510C08) 8. the science of mind. It teaches the
fundamentals of life, the laws and basics of living. Our technology
can be used to handle any condition that you find in life and if
applied it will better those conditions. Scn is not some esoteric
body of knowledge only to be used in the auditing room. It is
something one can go out


into the world with and use in all walks of life as well. It seems
that this us a very broad and an amazing science but this is
because Scn isolates and aligns the basic truths of life and life
is everywhere. (BPL 21 Oct 71 I) Abbr. SON.


  SCIENTOLOGY CHURCH REGISTER, a register for marriage, recognition
and naming, and funeral services kept On every Church of
Scientology. The Chaplain keeps the register. It should be in
accordance with any local regulations regarding such. (BPL 24 Apr

  SCIENTOLOGY CONSULTANTS, INC., we have now, for the first time, a
complete line of books in each of Dn and Scn. These are in
actuality separate subjects, and we now have the material and
corporations necessary to make them entirely separate. We are going
to conduct a very large radio campaign throughout the middle West
concerning Dn only. To do this, we will probably revive the Hubbard
Dianetic Research Foundation of Arizona, since this is now getting
cleared up all past accounts. Scn will be exclusively handled by
the Founding Church and the HASI. No letters or literature should
cross the words Dn and Scn. They should be maintained separately.
It is the basic truth that Dn is a mental therapy which was
developed out of the body of knowledge called Scn, as fully
discussed in an early Journal of Scientology (1952), but the legal
position and the actual practice of these two subjects means they
must be kept apart. From a management standpoint, these
organizations are held separately, in view of the fact that they
are to be managed through Scn Consultants, Inc., which is a
management corporation. (HCO PL 25 Jan 57) Abbr. SCI CON.

  SEAGULL, a symbol of the Sea Org going back to its first origin.
The seagull is associated with the power of the sea. Traditionally,
a bird soaring skywards is symbolic of the spirit ascending, or
freeing itself, and, generally speaking, birds are symbols of
thought, or imagination, and of the swiftness of spiritual
processes and relationships. In the Sea Org coat of arms, the bird
is used in a group of three. Thusly, it represents such concepts as
the third dynamic, the cycle of action, and the Be-Do-Have cycle. A
group of three also symbolized spiritual synthesis, and is the
formula for the creation of each of the worlds. In our terms, this
represents the three universes, one's own, others, and the physical
universe. That the seagull is white symbolizes the basic purity of
the spirit. The red band ascending across the four divisions of the
field (the fourth dynamic) represents the bridge which is
strengthened by the activity of the Sea Org and the Church of
Scientology in line with Ron's purpose. (FO 3350)

  SEAHORSE, the traditional Sea Org symbol for standard technology.
Formally adopted in 1968 as the symbol of Class VIII, it is

"aristocracy" of Scientology. These people alone and on their own

people who alone would excite great admiration but who together,
well organized, can actually get the job done. (FO 137) 3. in 1968

  SEA ORG SYMBOL, 1. the Sea Org symbol adopted and used as the
symbol of a Galactic Confederacy far back in the history of this

series of inner victories achieved by the individual, and the
clarification and purification of his buner aims and purposes which
lead to the outward victory. It is associated with the head, the
traditional abode of the spirit. The star is a symbol of the
spirit. The five pointed star most commonly signifies rising up
towards the point of origin; thus, it is a potent symbol of
alignment to source. The laurel wreath and star, in combination,
signify the victory of the spirit which is rising upward towards
the point of origin or source. Its proper color is always gold. And
note that the star is not trapped in its victory, but is In the
open field towards the top of the wreath, allowing free exit,
beyond its victory, and that is, in fact, in a field of blue,
symbolizing truth. (FO 3350) 2. the star is the confederation and

  SEC ED, 1. Secretarial Executive Directive. (HCO PL 7 May 65) 2.
Secretarial Executive Director. (HCO PL 22 Feb 65 III) 3. LRH EDs
were earlier called SEC EDs. (HCO PL 24 Sept 70R) 4. now named
"Executive Directives" or EDs. (HCO PL 1 Sept 66R) 5. Secretarily
signed order of the Executive Director, expiring one year from date
of issue. (HCO PL 13 Feb 66 II) 6. the meaning of the word SEC ED
is Secretarial to the Executive Director. The word "Secretarial"
applies to the signature meaning it is signed as official by a
person other than LRH personally. It is the written initials in the
lower left-hand corner that are "Secretarial." The system came into
use to accommodate cable orders originally. By being sealed and
initialed by an official person like a notary public in the org,
the validity of the order was attested as a valid order of LRH.
(HCO PL 3 Feb 66 V) 7. they win be on blue paper with blue ink. The
initials SEC ED always precede a SEC ED number. AD personnel orders
will now also appear In SEC ED form. (HCO PL 8 May 65 II) 8.
Secretarial Executive Directives are explicit temporary urgent
orders. It is desirable that a SEC ED is broadly distributed to a
staff and that SEC EDs of broad interest be distributed
internationally. (HCO PL 7 May 65) 9. Secretarial Executive
Director orders apply manly to personnel or local conditions,
expire in one year if not stated to expire earlier, may only last
one year in any event. Policy letters apply broadly to all ores and
Scientologists without exception. (HCO PL 5 Mar 65 II) 10. the
Executive Director comm lines now include Secretarial Executive
Director in all orgs including Saint Hill. This consists of a note
or cable typed out by the HCO Steno (or Communicator where no HCO
Steno exists or by the HCO Area Secretary where no communicator
exists). It is


sealed with the corporation seal in the lower left-hand corner over
the signature of the HCO personnel typing it. It is headed
"Secretarial Executive Director." It is on blue paper. The
signature of the Executive Director or the Acting Executive
Director is typed below the message. Date and subject are included.
Each SEC ED is numbered by the issuing Executive Director. The
exact text of the note or cable is duplicated without additions or
deletions. This is never a mimeographed item. The original sealed
SEC ED, with the note or cable, goes to HCO files. A copy is
immediately posted on the staff bulletin board by the HCO personnel
who typed it and signed and sealed it. Another copy goes to the org 
/Assn Sec. Another copy goes to the HCO Area Sec. SEC EDs are high
speed, urgent communications having the force of policy and require
instant emergency compliance. The SEC ED is the high velocity comm
line used to change personnel, to handle emergencies or to make
limited time policies or to handle personnel conflicts or chronic
slumps. All SEC EDs expire fully one year from date of issue but
are kept on record although no longer in force. The subjects of SEC
EDs are not general in application to all orgs but only to the
particular org to which they are addressed. (HCO PL 22 Feb 65 III)

(HCO PL 4 Feb 61) 12. a hat is not a hat anymore he a Central
Organization unless it's Secretarial Executive Director on blue
paper, black ink, with a corporation seal on every valid copy. When
a Secretarial Executive Director is Issued, it is published on the
bulletin board and given to the persons to whom it applies. Now
this means Secretarial Executive Director operates as the Secretary
to the Advisory Committee or Advisory Council. The Secretarial
Executive Director operates as Secretary to the board or any other
committee action or hoard action that takes place. This person, who
is ready the HCO Steno, turns up as the Recording Secretary,
prepares the minutes and sends them to the proper places for
signature. That's one action. The other action this person takes is
to collect old hats. If there's any new hat write-up, the
Secretarial Executive Director issues it. If there are any changes
that take place in the organization by its orders, Secretarial
Executive Director changes them. So you get, in essence, hat
preparation and write-up the issuance of general orders for the
local organizations through the Secretarial Executive Director.
Now, you get HCO Secretarial Letters. Very seldom will you get
anything that says "Secretarial Executive Director for Washington
D.C. only" because if its going wrong in one place, it's going
wrong someplace else too. But you do get Incidental orders to that
effect, so they can't be excluded. Instead of that you get an HCO
Secretarial Letter. Now this HCO Secretarial Letter arrives in a
central operation and is converted by Secretarial Executive
Director, after being viewed by the HCO Secretary. It is converted,
and it says: "Secretarial Executive Director, HASI, Johannesburg."
She types it all up. They are never mimeographed unless they are
for the whole staff or something. She puts a copy on the board, she
puts a copy to the persons to, and that's it. She's issued it. Now,
these are all policies. These things are basically policies. They
are hats, and so on. They may have particularities, but they
definitely have lots of policies connected with them. (5812C29)

existence of other businesses to provide the primary tangible items
to be serviced, repaired or maintained.

  SERVICE CONSULTANT, there are persons coming into the org who
want info, help, advice, guidance and a shoulder to lean on, but
they don't always get it. The Body Reg is usually flat out and
being pushed for GI and consequently with so much attention on
making money not all individuals get the service and attention they
desire or need. Sometimes it can take hours or even days,.maybe
weeks, to aid such persons who want and need personalized
assistance to terminatedly handle their stops and problems and thus
get them on the Gradation Chart. And this is where the Service
Consultant enters into the picture. Patience and tolerance are two
of the virtues needed for effective performance on such a post. He
gives persons lots of ARC and attention in order to get them up to
the stage of enlightenment where the Body Reg takes over and brings
the transaction to a close. The Service Consultant frees up the
Body Reg so she can July concentrate on the Gross Income - the stat

  SEVEN DIVISION SHIP ORGANIZATION, when we say Seven Division Ship
Organization we will mean the divisional assignments. All members
of the ship's company belong to this too. But it may be that two or
more ships (a flotilla) are combined in the organization as they
keep company most times at least in port and deputies can serve in
their stead when they are separated. So when we say Seven Division
Ships Organization we really mean flotilla organization. We could
say "squadron" but that's military and is also used now for air.
"Flotilla" merely means two or more ships. We have two vessels,
several launches and pulling boats and may have more, so the word
is fitting. Thus we have our Watch Quarter and Station Bill for
each ship and we have our flotilla organization chart which is our
seven division system. (Ship's Org By.)

symbolic of the fact that we are operating to handle the fourth
dynamic engram. Emblems are then placed on the background to

  SHIP'S ORG BOOK, our own technology (Scientology) is so far in
advance of general engineering, electronic and other current
technology that we are always a bit amazed that man's engines and
electronic gear don't run without careful nursing, and his ship's
don't sail well at all without extreme care. It behooves one to be
pretty expert at sea to arrive at all. So in these various articles
in this org book, you will find data to fill in the gaps. It is not
invented data, it is for the most part painfully traditional. The
reason this book exists at all is because man's texts, and his
memory, are woefully inadequate. I have given here, amongst various
orders, some of the vital technology needed in seafaring which is
omitted for the most part from the manuals available. (FO 40)

Ribbons leading from each branch office to the main office. And
there's the general manager looking out at these branch offices. He
hears something on the phone or the janitor about Torguevile. He
sees this situation as it looks from Poughkeepsie. And he issues
his snap orders. And the company struggles along somehow. Any

uses it. Been traditional since there were main offices or
headquarters. And orders can get pretty unreal. (FBDL 192R)

analysis. We now know what area to handle. (HCO PL 15 May 70)

simply as "mission orders," A full title is given this type of
situation handling mission orders. Two or more missionaires are
always sent on situations handling MOs as such missions fall when
attempted by just one missionaire. Such MOs cover a situation, a
calculated why and the handling of the situation terminatedly. Each
target must be terminatable withy the time span of the mission. In
essence this is a program that can be concluded. (FO 2936)

at increasing rates such as the first slice being taxed at 10%, the
second slice at 15%, and so forth.

proportionately raised or lowered to meet certain conditions. In a
sliding wage scale where salaries range from $5,000.00 to
$10,000.00 annually the rising cost of living may cause the scale
to slide up to a $6,000.00 to $12,000.00 range with all figures on
the scale in between being raised in equal proportions,

  SO 1 QUARTERLY SUMMARY, thousands of letters are received on the
SO 1 line every month. Of these, the vast majority are pure theta
good news (95%). However, a tabulation of complaints, queries and
requests (the remaining 5%) shows a very interesting picture of
where situations lie that need to he handled. This data is
extremely valuable to management for isolating situations well
before they blow up and flap. These summaries will be issued
henceforth on a monthly and quarterly basis. (FBDL 439)

  SOCIAL COORDINATION BUREAU, frequently PR gets into a situation
whereby it creates an entity or group or organization to bring
about some change of value within the community or to handle some
outstanding social injustice. In many cases the reform or action is
brought to a successful conclusion; however, in many instances, the
action to be effected is one which will require more time and
effort. In expending such time and effort, PR to keep ahead finds
itself in the situation of having and running a group or
organization within its own bureau; therefore, PR must, when this
occurs, realize that it is now in the situation of managing and
administrating an established entity which is likely to continue
and, therefore, should fully turn over the terminals, lines and
organization of same to the Social Coordination Bureau which is the
Guardian Bureau which properly acts as a management unit for such
entities, activities, groups and organizations. (BPL 22 Jul 75)

relationship to the world around him necessary to an understanding
of and success in life and to handle the behavior and eases of
those around them. (SO ED 135 INT)

  SOCIAL COUNSELLORS, 1. non-pro auditor course graduates. (BPL 15

posted in Dept 17 under the Public Reg to provide advice to public
persons. His purpose is: to help Ron guide public persons toward
happiness through properly recommended applications and use of Scn
and Dn to become more at cause. The main deference between Social
Counsellor and Chaplain activities is that the Social Counsellor is
handling raw public directly, and is a sales person, whereas the
Chaplain handles Scientologists and Dianeticists on a higher
professional level, as the Chaplain for the entire org field and
staff. (HCO PL 2 Dec 72 II) [The above HCO PL was cancelled by BPL

What is Policy?) SOURCE, Scientologists recognize and revere the
spiritual leadership of L. Ron Hubbard as the Founder, and as the
Source of the religious philosophy of Scientology. (BPL 24 Sept

  SOURCE MISSION, 26 top Flag personnel were fired from Flag in 12
separate mission teams to take to the orgs of the planet a closer
connection with L. Ron Hubbard, their Founder. They began giving
the orgs data and details about Ron and his life and actions; about
his incredible abilities in the many fields which he has mastered.
As this important communication line raised reality on the true
brilliance of Ron, planetary affinity for and understanding of
Source rocketed, and in tremendous surge the Scn orgs of the planet
moved more closely on-Source! (FBDL 404-1)

  SOURCES OF TROUBLE, types of persons who have caused us
considerable trouble. These persons can be grouped under sources of
trouble. (HCO PL 7 May 69)

a single matter or a series of matters, whose role is not as broad
as a general agent's who has more extensive powers to act on behalf
of a principal.

  SPECIAL DRUG RUNDOWN, the special drug rundown was issued to
handle persons currently on drugs. Such persons have to be weaned
off drugs no order to be audited. This is done by having the person
do TRs further assisted by vitamins. Those with heavy drug
histories or recently or currently on drugs do not usually run well
on engrams until objective processes have been run (CCHs, 8-C,
etc.). Thus a person currently on drugs would require a full TR
course as the first step and then objective processing before the
standard drug RD per C/S Series 48R could be started. Such a person
is therefore enrolled onto the HQS (which includes TRs and
co-auditing on objective processes) as their first step. But note
that this is for persons currently on drugs, not for anyone who has
ever taken drugs. (BTB 25 Oct 71R II)

should be clearly understood that this money and any funds that can
be salvaged from the HCO 10% (which is spent locally in most
Central Organizations) will help pay the expenses of the new

each ease it offers the nest service. (HCO PL 4 Feb 61)

  SPECIALIST, in the main, Sea Org crews, are specialist crews. By
specialist, one means fully trained on one post per watch or drill.
(FO 2469)

  SPECIALIST, 1. one who has devoted himself to a special area of
study, research and practice related to his occupation or
profession. 2. in the investment field, a person who is a member of
a stock exchange and who acts as a broker's broker, executing on
behalf of a broker, limited orders (clients' orders to buy or sell

  SPECIALIST CHIEF'S DEPARTMENT, (Ship Org Board) Department 12,
Division 4, the Production Division. He should be all ready to go
into action on any of his functions, have the right equipment, keep
records, plan ahead and generally I would think be your answer man
for problems, like how can I raise that anchor we lost last night?
or what can the crew do this afternoon on liberty on this
godforsaken rock we've landed on? (Ship's Org Bk.)

  SPECIALIST RECRUITER, responsible for the recruitment of
specialist type personnel, that is if auditors are needed for Flag,
or engineers or any other specialized field he will concentrate on
finding personnel for that area and of that particular skill
needed. (FO 3475)

  SPECIALIST TRAINED CREW, you have a specialist trained crew
before you have a generally trained crew. Each person is trained to
do his exact duty or his exact part of the drill. (6910C16 SO)

  SPECIALIST TRAINING, having a general knowledge of the area but

  SPECIAL PROGRAMS OFFICER, (Flag) the Staff Special Programs
Officer, under CS-6 to directly coordinate the Special Programs
Unit via the Public Officer, plus Special Projects Worldwide. (FO

  SPECIAL PROGRAMS SECTION, 1. (FB) the Special Programs Section is
mainly concerned with putting Scn into areas where there is little


no Scn. (CBO 189-1) 2. pilot project section. Every time you get
one of these will ideas you put it into special programs and it
will wind up not wrecking you. All new types of expansions are
ploted, they are ploted. Otherwise, you'll go broke, because you're
testing consumption. (FEBC 8, 7101C24 SO I)

  SPECIAL PROGRAMS UNIT, the Special Projects Unit is transferred
under the Public Officer, Div VI (Flag). This unit becomes the
Special Programs Unit, which will compile data and complete targets
as assigned. (FO 1715)

  SPECIAL PROJECT, 1. there's a lot of trial and error in
developing a program. That's why any new program should be only a
"special project" for a while, off the org main lines, really,
under special management. If a "special project" starts to show up
well in finance (and only in finance), then one should include it
"in" with its new staff as an org standard project. (HCO PL 24 Dec
66) 2. to find and establish a program, one conceives of a solution
and sets it up independent of org lines with its own staff and
finance as a special project. When a special project is seen to be
effective or, especially, profitable, it is then put into the org
lines as worked out in the "special project," bringing its own
staff with it. (HCO PL 24 Dec 66 II)


  SPECIAL SERVICES UNIT, to accommodate the expansion of AOLA solo

  SPECIAL STATS UNIT, there is obviously a sPecial stats post
somewhere in the Ops Bureau. The guy is drawing up stats for some
thing or other. There's somebody always either catching up backlogs
of stats or drawing up a special graph for some evaluation. E.g.
"What were the stats of Keokuk Org in 19527" You can call it a
special stats unit. (7205C13 SO)

  SPECIALTY GOODS, goods for which there is a limited market or
which are designed for special purposes, demands or needs. A store
selling only goods made of Oriental jade or ivory is dealing in
specialty goods.

  SPECIAL ZONE PLAN, 1. we are masters of IQ and ability. We have
know-how. Any of us could select out a zone of life in which we are
interested and then, entering it, bring order and victory to it.
The third and fourth dynamics subdivide. Any third breaks down into
many activities and professions, a neighborhood, a business
concern, a military group, a city government, etc., etc., etc. The
fourth dynamic breaks down just now mainly to races and nations.
Now just suppose a Scientologist were to consider himself a
professional only for the purposes of treating and repairing or
even starting again these third and fourth zones? See this: a
housewife, already successful employing Scn in her home, trained to
professional level, takes over a woman's club as secretary or some
key position. She straightens up the club affairs by applying comm
practice and making peace and then, incidental to the club's main
function, pushes Scn into a zone of special interest in the club -
children, straightening up marriages, whatever comes to hand and
even taking fees for it - meanwhile of course going on being a
successful and contributing wife. So this is a challenge on the
third and fourth. Almost all Scientologists are in a position to
begin to help on such a program. (HCOB 23 Jun 60) [See the
reference HCOB for a full description of the Special Zone Plan 12.
To Director of Zoning, London: please arrange the following: make a
card fee out on everybody that comes in; and in particular write
down name, address, and the zone they're interested in, and the
possibility or not that they will do volunteer auditing evenings
for some special personality. Keep this list of special zone
workers and keep it out of OF as such. You can info addressograph
that so and so is a special zone worker, but for now keep your own
card fee and build it up. (HCO PL 20 Jul 60)


  SPECIFIC QUESTION, the difference between a general and a
specific question is a matter of general or specific terminal. If
the question has a general terminal such as "anyone," "men,"
"people" it is harder to clear than a question with a specific
terminal such as "your father," "Miss Smith" etc., etc. (HCO PL 9
Oct 61)


  SPECTATOR, 1. let us look at the definition of OT - cause over
thought Life Form Matter Energy Space and Time. As one falls away
from that one becomes a spectator, then one becomes effect. In the
society today spectatorism is very common. Magazine writers,
reporters write weird pieces that look at how odd things are. The
writer doesn't understand them at all. He just watches them.
Spectatorism is not so low as total effect. The total effect - no
cause - person has mainly a case. He doesn't even look. (HCO PL 14
Jan 69) 2. Spectatorism is very great in our modern society.
Because some people cannot conceive of causing anything they just
watch it. They don't do anything. They are not participants. They
are spectators. You see this in magazines; a bee, bee, hee article
about how odd this is or that is. No understanding of it. It's just
odd and one watches it in a detached sort of way. Below this is
somebody who doesn't even notice. Such a person has to come up
stale just to be a spectator. What we need are more participants,
more team mates. (OODs 14 Jan 69)

  SPECULATIVE MAILING LIST, a list of names and addresses of people
who might he interested. (BPL 17 May 69R I)



  SPECULATORS, there are "speculators" who seek to buy something
(like land) cheaply and ceil it


dear. Or sell it dear, depress the market and buy it back cheaply.
In either case they make a profit. It is less well understood that
"speculators" also operate on the subject of money itself. By
manipulating the value of one currency against another they seek to
obtain a profit. (HCO PL 3 Dec 71)

  SPECULATORS, persons who take large investment risks with the
intent of greatly increasing their capital rather than being
concerned with dividend income.

  SPEED-UP, a state in which workers must increase their production
efforts without added reimbursement.

  SPLIT-RUN COPY TESTING, advertising practice of running the same
advertisement in deferent media and then comparing results and
relative drawing power of the advertisement in those media.

  SPLIT SHIFT, a schedule of work hours that is not continuous but
is spat up unto two or more intervals.

  SPOILS SYSTEM, a system whereby promotions or appointments are
made on the basis of the wbluing candidate or political party
rewarding loyal supporters and Fiends by appointing them to public

  SPOT CHECK, in checking out technical materials on students or
staff spot check the words and materials, do not try to cover it
all. This is done the same way a final examination is given in
schools: only a part of the material is covered by examination,
assuming that in the student has this right the student knows all
of it. (HCO PL 4 Oct 64)


  SPREAD, 1. in investments, the disparity between the price an
investment concern pays for stocks and the selling price for which
they are offered to the public. 2. type of advertisement space or
an advertisement that runs across two or more pages of a magazine
or newspaper.

  SP TARGET, some guys are so bad off they set targets like "move
the mountain" and give one and all a big failure. Since there's no
way to do it and probably no reason to either, that's an SP target.
So what must be done means just that. What is vital and necessary.
Not what is simply a good idea. (HCO PL 14 Jan 69)


  SQUARE DEAL, Slang phrase for a business deal that is fair and

  SQUIRREL, 1. what makes a squirrel? It is the person on the other
side of the squirrel. It is a person invalidating him invalidating
his goals, in validating his interest, and kicking the props out
from underneath him by covert hostility or overt hostility, but in
any way, kicking him apart. He's interested, he's working, but part
of another universe. But practically on the same time continuum is
an invalidative mechanism about this man not Scn. It isn't kicking
Scn around, it's kicking around somebody's stable data and it's
creating continuous confusions for him. So he splits off not
knowing quite where he stands. Is he in this universe called Scn or
is he or she in this universe sailed husband or wife or something
So here we have this invalidative person who is against it on the
other side or our guy and we sometimes can't reach this other
person. (5511C08) -v. 1. means go off line. (HCO PL 3 Dec 68) 2.
(going off in to weird practices or altering Scn) only comes about
from non-comprehension. Usually the non-comprehension is not of Scn
but some earlier contact with an off-beat humanoid practice which
in its turn was not understood. When people can't get results from
what they think is standard practice, they can be counted upon to
squirrel to some degree. (HCO PL 7 Feb 65) -any. by squirrel is
meant off-beat technology. (HCO PL 6 Feb 66)

  SQUIRREL ADMIN, the departure or alteration of standard admin.
The use of the word "squirrel" is long standing because squirrels
in their little cages go 'round and 'round and get nowhere and they
are also, a bad pun, "nutty," meaning a bit crazy. The main source
of squirrel admin is simply ignorance of policy procedure or the
neglect of reading and applying it as simply as that. (HCO PL 4 dun

  SQUIRREL ADMINISTRATORS, when a squirrel is given a circular
wheel he will run it 'round and 'round and 'round. He gets nowhere.
When persons in an organization do not know organizing or their org
board or hats, they go 'round and 'round and 'round and get
nowhere. There is no valuable production. There is no money. When
you have an organization that has no valuable production you know
that the people there go 'round and 'round and 'round and get
nowhere. They are squirrel administrators. (HCO PL 25 Jan 71)

  SQUIRREL COOKERY, there is also squirrel cookery. This normally
arises from not having the proper gradients to hand (supply
failure) and not having anyone to wash and slice and peel raw
materials so they can be cooked. A standard meal comes from planned
menu, correct supply, correct preparation of raw materials and
following the exact recipe. (OODs 2 Feb 71)

  STABLE DATUM, 1. we have in Scn a certain doctrine about
confusion. It is called the doctrine of the stable datum. If you
saw a great many pieces of paper whorling about a room they would
look confused until you picked out one piece of paper to be the
piece of paper by which everything else was in motion. In other
words, a confusing motion can be understood by conceiving one thing
to be motionless. Until one selects one datum, one factor, one
particular in a confusion of particles, the confusion continues.
The one thing selected and used becomes the stable datum for the
remainder. (POW, p. 23) 2. any body of knowledge more particularly
and exactly, is built from one datum. That is its stable datum.
Invalidate it and the entire body of knowledge falls apart. A
stable datum does not have to be the correct one. It is simply the

  STANDARD, standard means a definite level or degree of quality
that is proper and adequate for a specific purpose. (Webster's
Third New International Dictionary Unabridged. Standard 3 b, p.

  STANDARD ADMINISTRATION, 1. to approach the subject of standard
administration realistically, one first must recognize that a right
way to do things can exist. There are an infinity of ways not to
start a car. There is only one way to start a car. So it is with
any standard procedure. There is a tech of admin. This would be the
right ways to do administrative actions or organize something.
Standard admin means the usual "on policy" procedure applied. (HCO
PL 4 Jun 71) 2. solutions that work and are therefore routinely
used to handle the situation to which they apply are then called
standard admin. (HCO PL 25 Jan 71) 3. we had to have the
fundamental or basic laws of organization in order to develop the
full structure of organization. Administration becomes standard
when we have the most important points or laws or actions and when
we always use these and use them in just the same way (HCO PL 9 Nov
68) 4. in standard admin, we are acquiring (a) a knowledge of
basics, (b) the basics that exist in and around a specific
organization, (c) the ability to handle those basics with such
speed and certainty that it seems instant. And when we have this,
the organization, will go, go, go with an case and lack of effort
that is astonishing. (HCO PL 9 Nov 68) 5. there is a thing called
standard admin. It comes from the policy letters. When we produced
the wild, soaring tech stats with the Sea Org Class VIII auditor
program it was by putting in the exact processes and grades. By
going super standard we got 100% case gain. It is the same with
policy. If you get an org in with super standard policy -
promotion, form and admin - the stats soar. (HCO PL 25 Oct 63)

  STANDARD ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION, when experienced persons, working
from basic theory, have evolved a technique for handling a
situation routinely now handles that situation, we have now a

  STAR-RATED BOARD OF REVIEW CHECKOUT, the student may audit on a
process of a certain level when he has passed all theory and
practical checkouts for that process. The Board of Review need no
longer give provisional classification examinations, but need only
ascertain that the student has passed all theory and practical
checkouts for the next process to be run for a particular level. We
will call this a Star-Rated Board of Review Checkout. We will have
to starrate, therefore, each and every HCOB

could cab a stat ceiling. That stat ceiling per department would
give you exactly what the potential of the establishment was. (FEBC

  STATE OF EMERGENCY, 1. the indication of a state of emergency can
be read beforehand from an Organization Information Center board,
being forecast by red hes in three or more graphs, or by three red
lines on one graph. If management has tolerated this without action
when one red line occurred a state of emergency has already begun
when it reaches three, since this is patently one or a dozen
dropped bags. The organization can be assumed to be out of control.
(HCO PL 17 Feb 61 II) 2. the state of emergency is a serious
condition. For it takes a series of serious blunders to reduce
statistics or bring about local infamy or a public or press smear

offences resulting in over work for seniors of the org or near
catastrophe. (HCO PL 30 Apr 65) 3. when an org or portion of an org
has consistently down statistics (Organization Information Center)

symbols E for excellent, G for good, P for poor, D for dangerous, F
for failing. Tone is marked not by symbol but - by Tone Scale taken
from reports. On the basis of management reports and stats, the
State of the Orgs is fined in. This also serves as a cross check on
aides divisions over the world. Needless to state the state of the
org list is grouped by continent with the OTL or CLO leading...the
continental group. The continent as a whole is then added up by
division so a line is left for this after each continent. (FO 3113)

a stationship would normally be in the form of missions or
projects. Their major observational data of both Scn and SO orgs
and units are, of course, statistics. As a general rule, if stats
are up. the stationship lets the Sea Org COs and Exec Councils
under them get on with the job and backs them up. (FO 2199) Abbr.

falling. (HCO PL 30 Jan 66) 2. a number or amount compared to an
earlier number or amount of the same thing. Statistics refer to the

  STAT MANAGEMENT CHECKLISTS, checklists taken from policy letters
on or related to management by statistics and interpretation of
statistics. They are inspection specialists. The items are all
taken directly from the PLs and the only change in the wording of
any of them consists of making each one a negative. Thus if in
using a checklist the inspector or observer asks himself, "Does
this item on this checklist exist here?", and finds that it does
exist, then the PL the item belongs to is to that degree, violated,
and he knows that he has his hands on an error, an out-point, or a
possible why. As the subject is broad and has a lot of materials on
it, the checklists have been divided into 4 parts. Part A is to do
with the indicators and consequences of not having and using stats.
Part B concerns the admin and preparation of graphs for


Inspection and use. Part C has to do with handling statistics,
reading statistics, analyzing statistics. Part D concerns
inspection of areas with down stats, actions to take on stats, and
what to do at cut the conclusions arrived at in reading or
analyzing the stats. (BPL 29 Sept 72R I)

Materiel." It is issued to John John, who happens also to be
Director of Materiel. When a person is transferred, his possessions
are signed for by the person, as a person, who takes over that
position. If it exists somebody owns it and has signed for it. And
until a new person signs for it the old owner is liable for it
regardless of his whereabouts or new post. Until it is signed for

and soliciting success stories from same. Putting all completions
on the meter to ask key questions to verify satisfactory results.

happy or satisfied or that do not pass meter questions. Categorizes
success stories into types of successes and results. Distributes
and posts success stories and makes such available for use in Div 6
and Div 2 promotion pieces and also for Div 2 and Div 6 Regs use.
Sees that success stories are used. All these duties adds up to
ensuring good word of month. (HCO PL 14 Nov 71RA II) 2. could be
called a Qual function due to its flub catch aspects or a Div 6
function due to its promotion aspects. Thus question has arisen as
to its org board position. Actually the argument is based on
sub-products. Senior is the fact that success monitors word of
mouth and therefore is a vital part of PR area control in Div 6. It
is difficult for PR to succeed on the face of poor word of mouth.
Success is the checkpoint that will ensure good word of month and
will prevent persons with bad indicators leaving the org which will
create bad word of month. When success functions are ready in, good
word of mouth results and a PRO can do his job with reality and
without stumbling into bad word of mouth. An additional benefit is
that success provided the vital information line on the results the
org is obtaining with its services and this contributes to making
PR real. Success is a type of PR area control in itself and goes in
as an ingredient to make up the whole of PR area control. Success
monitors word of mouth = part of PR area control = Division 6. This
finalizes the position of success. (HCO PL 5 Aug 71 II)

  SUPERIOR SERVICE IMAGE PROGRAM NO, 1, 1. Instant Service Project
is part of the superior org image. An org never backlogs pcs or
students. Never makes them wait. Official orgs are really there to
service groups, franchises and the public. They are supposed to be
sources of superior service. The service must be superior to that
available from groups, franchises and field auditors and should
help them handle their rough pcs and students and assist them to
function. An org isn't a competitor to groups, franchises and field
auditors. It is the unit to which these feed people and to which
those in the field look for help, data and training. An org isn't
just another franchise. It must be a snap and pop senior that knows
its business and does it. (LRH ED 78 INT) 2. program to establish
and publicize the official org as the source of helpful standard
actions. (LRH ED 54 INT)

guys doing the study tapes are becoming. Not literate (able to read
and write). But super-literate, one who ready knows. (OODs 14 Apr

supervising but he must be a trained course supervisor. He is not
expected to teach. He is expected to get the students there, rolls
called, checkouts properly done, misunderstoods handled by finding
what the student doesn't dig and getting the student to dig it. The
supervisor who tells students answers is a waste of time and a
course destroyer as he enters out data into the scene even if
trained and actually especially if trained in the subject. The
supervisor is not an "instructor" that's why he's celled a
supervisor. (HCO PL 16 Mar 71R) 2. the supervisor is there to get
the course materials fully understood and applied by the student.

  SUPPRESSIVE PERSON, 1. next door to the "theetie-weetie" case is
the totally overwhelmed condition we call SP (suppressive person).
When a living being is out of his own valence and in the valence of
a thoroughly bad even if imaginary image you get an SP. An SP is a
no-confront case because, not being in his own valence he has no
viewpoint from which to erase anything. That is all an 8P is. (HCO

(HCO PL 28 May 72) 4. now any thetan wants out. Even the SP
himself, personally wants out. Only he, unfortunately, is sure that
you are simply trying to put him in. You see, he knows he belongs
in, and he is very described as somebody who is totally surrounded
by Martians, regardless of who you are..You see, he is stuck in an
incident which has personnel that have nothing to do with present
time. Yet, all that personnel is in present time and you are that
personnel, so that of course, you have to be held down. Therefore
he commits almost continuous crimes in an effort to hold people
down. A suppressive is in active attack on Scn. He commits overts
twenty four hours a day. (SH Spec 73, 6608C02) 5. it might interest
you how an SP comes About. He's already got enough overts to
deserve more motivators than you can shake a stick at. He has done
something to dish one and all in. He's been a bad boy. Now the
reason he got to be a bad boy was by switching valences. He had a
bad boy over there and he then, in some peculiar way, got into that
bad boy valence. Now he knows what he is - he's a bad boy. Man is
basically good but he


mocks up evil valences and then gets into them. You see, he says
the other fellow is bad. The other fellow was bad and eventually he
got this pasted-up other fellow and one day he becomes the other
fellow, see, in a valence shift or personality - whole, complete
package of personality. And there he is. So now he is an evil
fellow. He knows how he is supposed to act. He is supposed to act
like the other fellow. That's the switcherroo. That's how evil
comes into being. (SH Spec 73, 6608C02) Abbr. SP.

becomes a member of that club. This can be done in various ways. It
can be done by recreation. It can be done by group participation.

  TECH BUREAU, the Tech Bureau and Policy Knowledge Bureau of the
GO have just been phased out. It is a vital thing for LRH Comms to
get in "on-HCOB" tech. This is best done by having a Deputy LRH
Comm for Tech for that office or org. The duties of the Tech Bureau
mainly concerned checking refunds, following up out-tech on
persons, and assuring that celebrities received correct and
standard tech. These functions are contained in the GO hats for the
Tech Bureau. All these functions and hats now apply to LRH Comms.

it was found that policy responsibility was transferred to the
Guardian Office and that this is primarily an internal org
function. LRH Comms are therefore responsible for the tech quality
and the exact application of HCOBs. They are also responsible for
policy knowledge and use. To the degree that tech is exactly and
precisely applied, per HCOBs, books and tapes, orgs expand and
prosper. (LRH ED 205 INT)
