RE: BUREAU IV US WEEKLY REPORT W/E 2 November 1972
SITUATION: Nibs aiding PC, Sanders, Kaufman, etc., in attack on Church.
WHY: Seeking to cash in on name and family.
HANDLING: Ops received three boxes of material from Nibs, one containing letters between him and other attacks indicating ARC-breaks. Filmed interview scheduled to handle situation now and in the future.
SITUATION: Paulette Cooper continues as source of trouble to Church.
Why: Right pressure has not been brought to bear on her.
HANDLING: Investigation discloses her father's brother's (Joe Cooper) involvement with Diamond Dealer's Club, organization which consists of selected Diamond Dealers "not unlike N. Y. Stock Exchange". This group works with diamond syndicate which is headed up by Mr. Oppenheimer of the Oppenheimber [sic] Fund. Plans are to leak information about diamond syndicate in such a fashion that leak traces back from Joe Cooper to Ted Cooper to Paulette, thus cutting one of P.C.'s financial supports.
HANDLING: Agent spoke to Intelligence Officer of IRS and gave him data on father that he had made personal and business income that went into the thousands of dollars that he had not reported.
HANDLING: Agents took photographs October 25 of group including Kaufman, Cooper and Bernie Green, as they came from Channel 5 TV Show in New York. Cooper asked agent if he was a Scientologists [sic], he didn't answer, she screamed "he is one of them", Green put magazine in front of his face, and Cooper told agent "When the pictures come out in Freedom and so forth you'll be sued for invasion of privacy". Such a big effect for so little work.
HANDLING: P.C.'s name put all over town in public places with her address. Police now have a "Graffiti Task Force" that traces down any person's name written on any public places like subways or subways wall [sic]. This is part of the current pornography campaign. Also, P.C. will probably receive phone calls and visits (her address was also included). Only in America.
HANDLING: Investigation of various names in P.C.'s Brandeiss University Yearbook, agent found that classmate's brother, a Dr. Osnos, is a psychologist who has worked for the Washington Post in D.C. for about six years as a reporter.

HANDLED: AG Ptland states Harold was connected to the CIA by doing one radio engineer job for them in Spain in 1967, has been in Scientology since 1968, and is permanently separated from his wife. There is nothing in folders to indicate he is presently security risk.
SITUATION: Received report from AG Celebrity Center LA that he has student on HAS who works for T.V. Guide magazine and who R/Sed in his introl [sic] session on the question "Are you here under your own self determinism" and on questions relating to allies and close friends.
HANDLING: AG CC ordered by Internal Security US to interview this person. Report to come.
SITUATION: Ken Thompson, former ally of Jerry McDonald, back in Sea Org without having fulfilled requirements set out by CS-G.

HANDLING: AG DC has been requested to supply data on Mrs. Copitka.
SITUATION: Murray Gould on LA Celebrity Center lines turned out to be arsonist.
WHY: Data unknown when he came on lines.
HANDLED: Gould removed from lines. In his interview with Internal Security he came up with the name of a Ralph Enrat who once supplied drugs to Gould in 1966-1968. See next situation.
SITUATION: Jack Graham, Perrin's son, hangs around LA in area of Orgs, in company with various criminal types.
WHY: Nothing has induced him to go home to Chicago or take refuge in jail.
HANDLING: Internal Security has agent in place on Graham, presently checking on a connection of Graham's named "Ralph Unrot". If this turns out to be "Ralph Enrat" who supplied drugs to Murray Gould in the previous situation, will have nice data for bust.
