OSA Network Order No. 1351
(Excerpted from an LRH evaluation on a legal case in 1973.)
Compose, with Legal assistance, a disclaimer that does not invalidate the work but explains that the Church, while it is perfectly at liberty to do so, does not engage in psychosomatic handling or accept persons for treatment of disease of insanity and offers spiritual and religious counseling and that the attainment of betterment is at the responsibility of the person himself; that the E-Meter does nothing by itself but serves only as a guide to ministers of the Church; that the author was recounting only observations as a consequence of his work and is not responsible for any promises or misuse of these materials etc.; the import being that the person reads these works as his own responsibility.
The purpose of this is to debar any slightest chance of being charged, Church or author, with fraud.
Design it handsomely like a book plate with space for the person’s name on it “This book belongs to ________” at the bottom with plenty of space for the name and the type rather small.
