This small collection of notices is extracted from
the Church of Scientology's internal newspaper, The Auditor.
It is a monthly publication that goes out to Scientologists worldwide
to inform them of the Church's activities, promote Scientology courses
and provide information to the Scientology community. The cuttings above
appeared in the "notices" section of three 1970s issues of
The Auditor, illustrating how the Narconon-Scientology connection
was openly advertised to Scientologists at the time. Some points of
- The first item lists the address of Narconon's
director, Mark Jones, as being the Guardian's Office of the Church
of Scientology. (The GO in fact ran Narconon during the 1970s).
- Both the first and second items describe Narconon
as "a Scientology Drug Rehabilitation Program."
- The second item advertises for Scientologists "who
have done a [Scientology] communications course," which Narconon
uses in a nearly identical format. Trained Scientologists are still
routinely sought by Narconon to staff its facilities, on account of
their expertise in Scientology rather than drug rehabilitation.
- The last item supposedly lists Scientology missions, but also includes
a Narconon organisation in San Diego; fifteen individuals are listed
as having completed the HAS (Hubbard Apprentice Scientologist) course,
an introductory Scientology course. This almost certainly represents
a group of Narconon clients successfully completing a Scientology
training course, as the Scientologist staff would certainly already
have acquired this qualification.
