During an interview with Capt. Jefferson, Morals Squad, D.C. Police Department on 1/30/62, he asked if we were still interested in Scientology. I told him I did not know the present status of the firm, but we were always interested in the activities of this type of firm. Capt. Jefferson went on to say that he had spent a long time trying to build a case against Scientology, but he could never interest anybody in prosecution. He said he had sent his daughter to meetings and has recordings of several of these meetings. He also mentioned a man that had committed suicide after joining Scientology, and said that Scientology was responsible for the suicide.
Capt. Jefferson said that after the Food and Drug Administration seized the Dianezene [sic] tablets the firm stopped selling them. Recently his mother received a letter in the mail from Scientology saying that they were now selling Dianezene tablets again, and are also using the E-Meter. Capt. Jefferson gave me a copy of the December 1961 issue of Ability (attached)1 Which states that the E-Meter is now being made in England and imported into this country. The last paragraph of page 4 of this booklet refers to meters made in the United States during 1958,1959, 1960 and 1961. According to a letter from The Distribution Center to Mr. Stephens, BE, dated June 13, 1958, the firm stated they would not sell or act as agents for any electrical equipment.2
