Holy Toledo!!!! I thought those images were just 'spoofing' the original Aberree issues. I kinda am in a rut thinking....."Say it ain't so, Joe." The devil images spooked me in particular, as just last week, I was looking at the obits of some old timers. The two who wrote up the first HASI charter in Pheonix actually look like the devil from the Aberree, and also resembled LRH very much in 1954. I feel like I'm watching Rosemary's Baby and wondering, who actually IS a worshiper of the 'Lightbringer'? These guys from Phoenix in 1954 actually were sincere and helpful in the 70s. But, I had to laugh looking at Veda's supplied image above, and then remembering the feelings I got about them at the time. I entertained notions that they were all secretly witches.... back in the early 70s. LOL. The Masonic organizations were so common in their heyday. Nobody would think that LRH had been involved in anything having to do with Aliester Crowely or that the earliest practicioners had any occult leanings; not at the time of the local missions anyway. ........................... Hrrrmmph.....I deleted their pics out of respect for the families who provided the old Scientology photos as part of their memorials online. Interesting old pics though with comments about early Scientology. Oh well.
