CONCERNING PDH CASES
(Excerpted from a briefing of 17 March 1969.)
A situation has developed where someone is reported to have been “PDHed.” This fellow walked off the Neptune2 and went ashore at about two o’clock in the morning and supposedly was knocked in the head and the police picked him up and he wound up in a hospital. They gave him sodium amytal and he suddenly remembered who he was. All this is very interesting and entertaining. The execs promptly checked the rest of the org—but didn’t check with the police at the hospital—and two others suddenly turned up PDHed.
PDH is a very peculiar phenomenon. If a person has really been PDHed, he isn’t walking around and then suddenly remembers he has been PDHed.

PDH stands for Pain Drug Hypnosis. It is known to some psychiatrists as a means of compelling obedience. They sometimes use it on psychotics.
The trouble with detecting PDH was learned in 1952 when we found FAC ONE (1,000,000 to 1,250,000 year ago incident). People think they have been PDH’ed when they haven’t.
You can easily get a panic going on PDH. We found out all about such panics in 1952 when a dozen people were certain another had PDH’ed them. It all went false when dated correctly.
There haven’t been any current PDHes.
As we’re attacking psychiatrists inhumanity to man we can easily get a motivator keyed in. So cool off any flaps about PDH. Tell people the above facts, particularly 1952.
Psychiatrists are so afraid of us they are attacking themselves! A recent “Time” magazine carried one of many such articles under “Medicine”.
Even if a Scientologist were PDHed, it would run out easily with modern auditing in very short order. Might as well be afraid of toe stubs.
On psychotics it would be more serious as, not having an auditor handy he’d just go out and assassinate somebody.
S0 cool off any such.
