Dear Mr. Jones:
Attached please find a copy of our preliminary research survey on the YTS Narconon Program. Although its results should not be viewed as positive proof of Narconon effectiveness, they do seem to strongly indicate that Narconon is having a very positive and beneficial effect in increasing the socially-desirable behavior of its participants both in trade classes and on the living units.
Copies of this survey are being sent to the Superintendent, Mr. Robert McKibben; related staff; and Steve Golden, YA Central Office, with whom we are developing the program memorandum on funding alternatives.
A second copy of the survey is enclosed for Mike Armstrong.
I am looking forward to our meeting next Wednesday, June 21, 1972, at 3:30 p.m.
Very truly yours,
ROBERT L. MC KIBBEN, Superintendent
The Narconon history.
