State Board of Medical Examiners filed charges against HDRF for
teaching a branch of medicine without a license. ... In January, 1963,
the Food and Drug Administration directed a raid against the Academy
of Scientology ... in which machines used by the Academy in the
practice of scientology were seized. It was alleged that these
machines, known as "Hubbard Electrometers," were falsely advertised as

alleged communists. We have not conducted an investigation of him or
