Re: Librarian: riddle me this.....

The timing on this message is a mystery: from the context it seems to have been written before New Year's Eve 1997, but it didn't arrive in a.r.s. until 5 January 1998. So much for the Librarian Trivia. Whatever the cause for the time warp, in this encounter the studious and perservering Zed—who The Librarian seems to have a real crush on—returns to the ARSCC Chimerical Library with more HARD FACTS and some harder questions. The Librarian gets pretty, uh, lathered up, because Zed has opened the vaults, so to speak, on an entire body of re-written and altered works that are "derived from" or "based upon" the works of L. Ron Hubbard, as opposed to the actual works of L. Ron Hubbard.

zed@magna.com.au (Zed) must have taken me for some kind of Greek
*oracle* or something, because he came whistling into the ARSCC
Chimerical Library *right* when I was trying to get the Christmas
decorations *down,* and trying to get the mirrored ball *up* for New
Years, and he wanted me to play *riddles* with him!

So, blowing a strand of hair <Phhoo!> out of my face, I climbed *down*
the rickety old ladder that the ARSCC is *still* making me use. Zed
held the ladder for me and (a-HEM!) *warmly* helped me down, because
he had a bunch of stuff he wanted to show me. But first he started
asking me a *storm* of *unanswerable* questions about *who* the Church
of Scientology International hired to write altered versions of L. Ron
Hubbard's works. Showing me some Library of Congress things I had
posted, Zed asked:

>Does this mean that technically Starkey compiled the
>"Hubbard Dianetics auditor course" as an employee for CSI, and
>the copyright therefore belongs to CSI? Or is it the other way
>around? Or does it mean that both Starkey and CSI get a piece of
>the copyright?

Zed--puh-h-h-le-e-ease, honey! I am a *Librarian;* I am *not* the
All-Seeing Eye. How the heck am *I* supposed to know who they hired to
do what? That's for a Special Investigator to find out. And I'm *sure*
one will. Next question?

Seeming a bit disappointed in me, Zed went on:

>I'm asking because I'm trying to make sense of something I found
>in the COHD database (which catalogues copyright transfers). My
>primitive search tecnique yielded the following:
>******
>V2927 P238 THRU 260         (COHD)

My eyes started to glaze over, my breasts heaved, and my knees began
to go all weak and rubbery on me. I knew he was getting close to the
truth, and *nothing* gets to me like a man who has HARD FACTS and
knows how to USE them! But Zed was preoccupied, and *whipped* out even
*more* HARD FACTS:

>The trouble is that I also found this:

The only thing Zed was missing was something that wouldn't be obvious
to *anybody* but me. OOooo, and I could *feel* it. Every muscle in my
body was tensed, heat coursing through me! I wanted to grab him and
smother him with my *gratitude.*

Yes! Zed, you smart, smart boy! Oh, I could *squeeze* you! Look, Zed,
at the 1996 transfer's overall description: see, it says, "derived
from or based upon literary works of L. Ron Hubbard." Ohhh-h-h, read
it *again,* Zed! "*Derived from* or *based upon* literary works of L.
Ron Hubbard." Yes! Oh, I *love* HARD, incontrovertible, FACTS! Things
you can TOUCH and HOLD, again and again and again! That means those
works *aren't* the literary works of L. Ron Hubbard, or it wouldn't
have to say that! Oh, Zed! I *have* to sit *down*!

Zed, always a gentleman, pulled up a cushy library chair for me and
poured me another glass of pre-New Year champagne from the bottle I
had opened. (Oops. Sorry, Bob.)

See, Zed: the 29 November 1993 transfer you showed me first--yes, that
one--doesn't say "derived from or based upon literary works of L. Ron
Hubbard." Can you see why? The 1993 transfer was the *real* stuff--the
stuff being buried forever by CST.

But the *later* transfers--even though many of the *titles* of the
works seem identical--are actually the "derived from or based upon"
*altered* versions to be used for "The Scientology Religion." What,
you thought that "Scientology" and "The Scientology Religion" were the
same thing? <Tinkling laughter, made sparkling by the champagne>. Oh,
Zed, my sweet, sweet hard-working little researcher! Are *you* in for
a surprise!

Zed's eyes got almost as big as Son of Xemu (Xenu)'s.

Well, I can't tell you about that right now. Soon, sweetie, soon. I'll
give you a hint: Shhh-h-h-h. <WHISPERED IN ZED'S EAR WITH
CHAMPAGNE-AND-LIPSTICK SWEETNESS>: [[It has *something* to do with
that "fact sheet" that the IRS sent out using taxpayer money. It's
called, "A Description of the Scientology Religion." Don't ever forget
that phrase: "The Scientology Religion." And, *boy*, are *you* in for
some *titillating* news! Soon.]]

Now, Zed, what *else* have you got for me, you big hunk of HARD FACTS,
you?

Zed swallowed hard, and said:

>Another point of interest: in the past two years or so, a large
>number of copyrights appear to have been transferred to CST. I
>see transfers from CSI, Bridge Publications and in 1997, Author
>Services Inc as well. Why would CST be sucking copyrights from
>organisations lower down...

That did it! When he started talking that way, I couldn't hold it back
anymore! I just *gushed* out the pent-up secrets I had been holding
onto!

Here, Zed, here! Take them! Take *all* the recorded transfers of
copyright to CST that have happened AFTER the 29 November 1993
tranfer. Here are the transfers for "derived from or based upon"
versions of many of those *same* titles. I can't hold it back any
longer Zed! Take them! Oh! OH! Here they come!

Oh, Zed, I am *spent*! There, it's all out. And I feel *so-o-o-o* good
about it. If you take my earlier post to you, called "ZED VS. THE
LIBRARIAN-2," and combine the chronological list of transfers in
*that* with *this* chronological list, you'll have the whole show, all
nicely organized.

Of course, to sort out *exactly* what's in all those *thousands* of
seemingly *duplicate* titles that were transferred--including "The New
Grammar"--well, Zed, I think we ought to let that Special Investigator
earn his taxpayer dollars, don't you? I mean, *I've* got to get these
*decorations* taken care of. You think I get *paid* for all this, or
something? Now, Zed, be a dear and pour me some more champagne, will
you. And, while you're up, would you climb the ladder there and hang
that mirrored ball for me, sweetie?

                           --<The ARSCC Librarian>

P.S. Zed, I just can't *wait* for the MAJOR investigations into the
IRS and the CTCC, can you? Do you ever wonder what Meade Emory is
doing, like, *right now*? I do. Or what he was doing in oh, say, 1975
and 1976, when that IRS employee named Gerald Wolfe was taking
documents, like, *right* out from under Meade's *nose*?

Don't you fall off the ladder and break that thing!

I mean, Zed--Meade was Assistant to the *Commissioner* of IRS back
then. Gosh! I know I can be a silly girl at times, but I just lie
*awake* some nights, and I wonder, wonder, wonder. Es*pecial*ly since
Meade Emory helped set up CST. Small world, I guess! But then CST
wound up getting *ALL* of those copyrights--two *different versions*
of lots and lots of seemingly duplicate titles! Isn't that
*interesting!* I just wonder, wonder, wonder...

---------------------------------------------------------------
*The ARSCC, like its filled-with-wonder Librarian, does not exist.
