L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, calls on representatives of older beliefs in Britain to sit down in a meeting with him "to iron out problems."

In a statement released by Scientology's headquarters in East Grinstead, Sussex, Mr. Hubbard says:

"News has reached me of Britain's decision to ban students of Scientology from entering the country. I am sure any trouble comes from adherents of older practices who resent the growth of Scientology because it is getting all the business.

It was no intention of Scientology to injure older practices. Scientology directors should get together with older activities and come to an agreement in a civilised way. If the Government wants Scientologists not to do something, they should say what it is. I am sure scientology directors would then forbid it.

People who object should tell Scientology organisations what is wrong and why, and it could then be handled properly. New thought cannot be crushed by violence — thousands of years have proven that. The old has to make its peace with the new.

There is enough trouble on this planet without making more over something so easy to resolve. Callaghan would look much better as a peacemaker than as a policeman."
