Church ofers personality test

INBRIEF

By NEIL CHASE
That yellow "personality quiz" han-
ded out on street corners or left in
restaurants may turn out to be more
than just an evaluation of your psyche.
Called the "Oxford Capacity_
Analysis," the 200-question test is
distributed by the Church of Scien-.
tology in order to introduce its doctrine
and services to those seeking "how to
become more yourself."
THE TEST asks such questions as,
"Do you get into trouble occasionally?"
and "Would you use corporal punish-
ment on a child aged 10 if it refused to
obey you?" The answers are used to
determine whether you are, for exam-
ple, a happy, irresponsible, stable, or
withdrawn personality.
Once completed and mailed in, the
quiz is scored by a church staff mem-
ber. The person tested is called in for
an interview and the test results are
then explained.
The solution to your personality,
problems? Read "Dianetics," a book
on which Scientology is founded, said

Rick Fry, public executive secretary
for the Ann Arbor church.
FRY SAYS the church can offer
people "data they can use. . . so their
life goes better." However, not
everyone will benefit frm the church, or
understand the book, Fry added.
"We're only here for the able and the
capable," he said.
The Rev. Marian Dreher, who foun-
ded the Ann Arbor church in 1973, says
a person must want to help himself. "If
a person is waiting for someone to come
along with a magic wand and make
them better, it won't happen."
The. Church of Scientology is an in-
ternational organization with branches
throughout the United States. The Ann
Arbor group was founded as a mission
nine years ago and just recently
became a full-fledged church with a
staff of 15. Dreher, who founded the
mission here, said she became a mem-
ber through her parents. The group
now has an active membership of 40 to
50 people in Ann Arbor, including
several University students and alum-
ni.

DIANETICS, written by church foun-
der L. Ron Hubbard, explains the chur-
ch's theories and how they can be used.
The book explains the difference bet-
ween the analytic mind, which remem-
bers experiences and computes, and the
reactive mind, which contains painful
memories and mistaken perceptions.
The science of dianetics seeks to remove
these "engrams" through counseling.
THE GOAL is to emerge as "clear,"
a person no longer plagued by the
troubles of the reactive mind. The chur-
ch's courses and training sessions
range in cost from free to a "minimum
donation" of $150.
Many people join the church after
hearing about it through books, ar-
ticles, and personal contact with church
members, in addition to the personality
test, said Fry. He said he joined after
his sister took the church's personality
test and began taking Scientology
classes.
John Stout, a Michigan alumnus who
received a master's degree in music
composition in 1981 and arranges
music for the Michigan Marching

Band, joined the church in 1975. He
credits the church with helping him a
great deal during high school and
college.
"I appreciated the techniques for
helping a person study ... (and) I can
do a lot more things physically than I
could do before because of the coun-
seling."
Another musician, Greg Krueger,
heads a Detroit band called ''Dollars."
He graduated from the University in
1975 and, along with his wife, formed
the band here based on the Church of
Scientology's approach to running a
business or organization. Krueger said
he feels it has prevented him from suf-
fering the problems he sees facing
many other bands.
FEW RELIGIOUS meetings are as
informal as the church's Sunday ser-
vices in an old house on N. Ingalls St. A
recent service included Dreher and five
church members seated around a living
room. Dreher opened the service by
asking all present to introduce them-
selves and then read the creed of Scien-

done by a "copycat" who heard of the
Chicago cases.
Investigators ruled out industrial
sabotage at the manufacturing plants
because the deadly capsules had been
placed in different loeations and were
in containers carrying differing lot
numbers.
McNeil Consumer Products Co., the
manufacturer of Tylenol pain reliever,
has offered to exchange all Tylenol
capsules, both regular or extra-
strength, for Tylenol tablets, which
have not beeninvolved in any of the
poison taintings in Illinois and Califor-
nia.

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Senator 'intimidates women,'
peace group leader charges
WASHINGTON - Betty Bumpers, the wife of Arkansas' senior senator,
said yesterday Sen. Jeremiah Denton (R-Ala.), was tryng to intimidate
American women by charging that their work against the arms race gives
'comfort and aid" to the Soviet Union.
In a charged Senate debate last Friday, Denton objected to a resolution
expressing support for Peace Links, an organization founded by Bumpers,
the wife of Democratic Sen. Dale Bumpers.
Bumpers said Peace Links takes no stand on nuclear arms issues but
distributes literature provided by other groups and represents all viewpoin-
ts. She said the purpose is to stimulate thinking in women's groups about the
arms race.
Former first lady Rosalynn Carter, the wives of two governors, and at
least 11 congressional wives are associated with Peace Links.
Bumpers also took issue with a Washington Post editorial questioning the
group's judgement in permitting members the Women's International
League for Peace and Freedom and Women Strike for Peace on it s35-
member advisory board.
The Post said the two organizations have ties to Soviet groups.
"I was angered by the reckless use of language, evoking a dark period in
the history of our country, McDCarthyism," Bumpers said of the editorial.
She asked the Post to "reconsider and retract."
Arthritis drug shows promise
The first trial of an experimental drug treatment for severe cases of
rheumatoid arthritis has halted progress of the disease in five of 17 patients
and sparked a startling regrowth of damaged bone, doctors say.
"Some of the damge to the bone that people thought would never go away
seemed to get better," Dr. Guillermo Carrera of The Medical College of
Wisconsin in Milwaukee said yesterday. "It startled us." Carrera, a
radiologist, helped assess the effectiveness of the new treatment developed
by Dr. Daniel McCarty, a rheumatologist at the college.
Dr. Frederic McDuffie of the Arthritis Foundation in Atlanta said the
study is moderately important, but the treatment would be useful only for a
small - but important -fraction of the almost 7 million Americans who have
rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease characterized by inflammation,
pain and swelling in the joints. It can lead to deformity of the joints.
The treatment consisted of a combination of three drugs known to be effec-
tive against rheumatoid arthritis - cyclophosphamide, azathioprine and
hydroxychloroquine.
Weinberger says Soviets tried
to steal U.S. military device
WASHINGTON- Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger said yesterday
that the Soviets attempted to steal a device vital to air and satellite recon-
naissance, but the equipment was intercepted before leaving the United
States.
Weinberger mentioned this briefly in a speech in which he accused the
Soviets of using both legal and illegal methods "to raid our technological
base."
"They tried to steal a multispectral scanner, which is indispensable to
military air and satellite reconnaissance," Weinberger said in a speech
prepared for the American League for Exports and Assistance.
"Fortunately, it was intercepted as it was being smuggled out of the coun-
try on a corporate aircraft," he added.
GM found guilty of sex bias
LANSING- The Michigan Court of Appeals agreed yesterday that
provisions of a former General Motors Corp. contract limiting disability
benefits for pregnancy constituted illegal sex discrimination under state
law.
Robert Segar, attorney for the women, said if the ruling stands, all women
who worked for GM between 1970 and 1977 and suffered pregnancy-related
disabilities of more than six weeks duration would be eligible for damages.
"Based on the foregoing, we find no merit to defendant's contention that,
under Michigan law, the limitation of pregnancy benefits is not sex-based
discrimination," the court said. GM also argued disabilities resulting from
pregnancy are different from disabilities resulting from sickness or injury
which the contract was meant to cover.
"An employee who is giving childbirth, or is suffering from complications
as a result of giving childbirth, fits within this definition of 'disabled' just as
much as an employee who suffers from an illness or from injuries, whether
accidental or self-inflicted," the court said.
Military gets pay boost
WASHINGTON- The Pentagon has put into effect a 4 percent pay in-
crease for the more than 2.1 million men and women in uniform, the lowest
annual pay boost since 1976.
President Reagan initially proposed an 8 percent military pay increase for
this year, but a congressional budget resolution adopted in June stipulated a
4 percent increase and Reagan fell in line with the lower figure in August.
Defense manpower chief Lawrence Korb forecasted an administration
backtrack on pay increases last April when he told Congress that "we
recognize that the Department of Defense, like other groups in the public
and private sector, may have to sacrifice a bit."
Korb linked this statement with an acknowledgement that "a lesser in-
crease may be called for" in order to fight inflation.
