The Fifth Anniversary
Congress of Dianetics-Scientology, originally scheduled for Phoenix on June 3
to 6, and suddenly shifted
to Washington, D.C., was
held at the Shoreham Hotel
in a city which has had
congresses so long it takes
them in stride, without a
further change in sites.

It was another "biggest

lectures -- emphasis on the

spiritual Being in man -- was

offered to the congress,
each body can have at least
two thetans behind every
head instead of just one.

A new scale -- from -8 to
40 -- was-offered and elaborated on, showing hoy it differs yet agrees with the
Tone Scale so familiar to
all workers in Dianetics
