Description: Hubbard is discussing Scientology's mailing lists; says Loyola University is using DMSMH as a textbook to train Catholic priests.
They covertly get on our bulletin lines, which is quite interesting. We have all sorts of Joe Doakeses and Bill Smykes . . Sykeses and things like that in our mailing lists and so on in order to get bulletins and memberships, and so on. And these turn out to be the most interesting people when you run them down. They turn out to be the head of MIT or something like this, you know and the . . . We’ve suddenly started selling books in the United States to the most unlikely areas. The Army Infantry School has just now officially put in orders for many Scientology and Dianetic books. One invoice was sent to me . . maybe there was just one at the moment, but there’ll be more. Loyola University, by the way, uses Dianetics: Modern Science of Mental Health as a textbook . . the Catholic University that teaches priests. Interesting, huh? Well, the American Psychiatric Association, the American Psychological Association spent rivers of money to get Loyola to study psychiatry and psychology. And after they succeeded in doing this and Loyola set up an actual department to do this, then the first book they ordered was Dianetics: Modern Science of Mental Health, which I thought was pretty good. They’re doing a land-office business in book sales these days to unlikely areas. There’s quite a few of them have come in lately.
