An excerpt from the article:

Sirhan Tells How Israeli  Ad Led to   AssassinationLOS ANGELES, CALIF. (AP) Sirhan Blshara Sirhan told

About a month before the assassination, Sirhan read an article in a religious magazine urging the reader to “put your plan, your goal, your idea in writing and see how It catches fire.”

Sirhan said he read the article  

in the Rosicrucian Digest, a 

publication issued by the mysti

cal Rosicrucian religious order 

to which he belonged.

“See how your idea gains mo

mentum by the simple process 

of writing down/* said the arti

cle in the May, 1968, issue.

. Sirhan grinned sheepishly as 

Cooper read from two notebooks 

of private entries and sighed  

“Thank God” when the reading 

was concluded.

An excerpt from the article: ’’Some Thoughts on Sirhan” by Max Lerner

Such men arc likely to use big 

words they don’t quite under

stand, or grammatical syntax 

they have not mastered. Here is 

a rather pathetic example: “For 

a person to put his thoughts into  

words is a difficult task if you are to remember that that per

son is a troglodyte who is there

fore more physically inclined 

than his urban contemporary.” 

Or the note at the top of the 

page on which one finds the re

peated scrawl, “Robert F. Ken

nedy must be assassinated”—a note reading: “My determina

tion to eliminate RFK is becom

ing more the more of an unsha

kable obsession.”

It is not surprising that such a man, with little or no knowledge  

of Marxism, should write “I 

firmly support the Communist 

cau se and its people'* or should 

assert “I believe that the U.S. is 

ready to start declining.” Nor is

it surprising that he should have 

reached out to the mysticism of  the Rosicrucian Society, writing 

on an application, “By reading 

your book, Mastery of Life,  I  have discovered how much I do not know about myself despite 

all the philosophical works I have been reading."

It is exactly out of such a hotch

potch of contradictory strands that the master strand may  

emerge: to wreak oneself on cir

cumstance by seeking out the 

enemy and killing him, to im

press oneself thus on life and history'.

Rosicruclanti throughout the 

Valley will h oi 1 Jieif annual 

New Year’s ceremony on 

Sunday at 7:45 p.m.

The event will be held at the 

San Fernando Valley Lodge 

quarters, 15716 Parthenia St., 

Sepulveda. Many visiting 

members from surrounding 

cities will be in attendance.

The new officers of San Fer

nando Valley Lodge who will 

be Installed are: Delores Cas

teel, secretary; David Williams, chaplain; Louis 

Sorensen, outer guardian; 

Ann Rainerl, inner guardian; and Ernie Grothe, secretary of the board of trustees. ^

According to Nancy-June Thomas, lodge master, the ancient Egyptians, from the time of Memphis to the Ptolemaic Period, began their new year always on or about the 

time of the vernal equinox, when the sun on its journey crosses the celestial equator and enters the zodiacal sign of  Aries, which always occurs on or about March 21.

This was considered the beginning of the new year because spring is the dormant period of winter, the bursting forth of blossoms, and the growth of living things.

The occasion of the New Year will be celebrated, states Nancy-June Thomas, by a symbolic feast in w’hich the 

participants receive simple foods, corresponding to certain basic elements of nature, such as salt, com and unfermented grape juices.

The Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, a nonreligious, philosophical fraternity, maintains that its traditional origin occurred during the reign of Pharaoh Akhnaton in 1350 B.C. The order commemorates the ancient New Year’s beginning with a nonreligiou? ceremony that embraces the allegorical significance of .the age-old Egyptian rite.

March 21 is also the begin

ning of the fiscal period ti t    all Rosicrucian lodges and chapters throughout the world, and the date is marked by the installation of new ritualistic and administrative officers.

For additional information contact 0. L. Peterson, office 391-0311, Ext. 6181 or 7421 (8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.) or at home, 343-1248.

"S irha n ’Hipnotized by M irro rs’ at Time of Slaying, Witness Says”

“I told him I was . . . (and) he went into a tirade on why he hadn’t been told,” the witness said.

“I’m quite sure he knew perfectly well I was Jewish," Dr. Diamond said.

During the interviews when1Sirhan was “awake,” the psy

chiatrist testified, the defen dant was “resistant and eva

sive” when thej' discussed his belief in * “Rosicrucian magic.”

He wanted the discussion of  the AMORC “off the record,” the witness said. ^

Dr. Diamond also contended Sirhan “tells lies when it comes to revealing anything that could be an indicator of  mental illness . . . ”

Concerned on BombersUnder hypnosis, the psychi

atrist added, Sirhan “Admits he thought of the death of San. Kennedy.

“He willed him to die so

Sirhan had hypnotized himself  and written In his diaries.

“His writing (under hypnosis) is much more fluent,” Dr Diamond testified.

At one point, Defense A tty Emile Zola Berman asked trial Judge Herbert V. Walker 

f he would allow Sirhan to be lypnotized by Dr. Diamond in h e c o u r ro o m .

Judge Walker said it was lot necessary and would not allow such a demonstration.

Dr. Diamond said Sirhan hever trusted him or believed ho was working for the defense.

The psychiatrist was the only one hired by the defense. 

Dr. Eric H. Marcus, a psychiatrist who testified last week, was court-appointed.

eight or nine times."

Wrote Fop “Practice"

Dr. Diamond asked Slrhan if It was “crazy writing*’ why was he doing it?”

Slrhan, he testified, replied “practice" for “mind con trol."

The mind control, Dr. Dia mond quoted Slrhan as writ mg was for “self Improve ment." i

If he was hypnotised when he wrote in the notebooks at home and the defendant wrote that he was.

Who hypnotized you?” the psychiatrist said he asked.

“Mirror, mirror, my mir* •or, my mirror . . . he said Slrhan wrote.

“Who taught you (to hypno- ize yourself)?" Dr. Diamond asked Slrhan.

He said the defendant wrote, “AMORC," several time*.

Slrhan, the psychiatrisf w   n r# Diamond told he previ-said, claimed he taught himself selfhypnosis.

Sirhan continually insisted he was never successfully hypnotized and felt “we were bugging him," said Dr. Diamond.

The psychiatrist also taid  Sirhan once asked him if he was Jewish.

“I told him I was . . . (and)  he went into a tirade on why

ously had suspicions Sirhan had been hypnotized before because of the defendant’s 

ability to easily slip into a trance.

He said the mystery of why the young Arab was sometimes uncommunicative was solved when he learned Sirhan had hypnotized himself  and written in his diaries.

 Sirhan trial delayed one dayUnited Press In fem tfofttl

LOS ANGELES — Crossexamination of

Dr. Bernard Diamond, a key defense wit-

ness In the murder trial of Sirhan B. Sirhanwas postponed yesterday to give the prose-cution time to marshal its attack upon histestimony.

Diamond, a psychiatrist as well as a law-yer and a professor of criminology at theUniversity of California at Berkeley, testi-fied Monday Sirhan killed Sen. Rotttrt F.Kennedy while Ui a selfinduced hypnotictrance.

When court convrned yesterday mining,associate prosecutor David N. Fitts askedfor a recess to allow him to study thelengthy testimony given by Diamond.

Trial Judge Herbert V. Walker adjournedthe proceedings until today at 9:30 a m

Diamond, just as other expert witnesses before him, expressed the belief Sirhamwas mentally ill, a paranoid schizophrenic,and his illness had roots in his boyhoodwhen he was exposed to violence in theArabIsraeli conflict in his native Palestine.

His resentment of the Jews who took over pa rts of Arab ter rito ry to form the state ofIsrael grew with the years and was trans-ferred to Kennedy when the New York sen-

ator said he would send 50 Phantom jet bombers to Israel if he were elected pre si-dent, according to Diamond.

“ftje assa ssina tion of Kennedy was strictlya fantasy and found expression only In ram-

 bling thr eats Sirhan wrote In notebooksuntil the night of June 4 when he wanderedinto the Ambassador Hotel and shot thesenator, Diamond said.

Sirhan had been experimenting with self-hypnosis, Induced by staring into a mirror  in a room lighted only with two candles,Diamond said. On one occasion, he saw nothis own face but the face of Kenendy inthe mirror.

Some of the experiments were suggestedin literature received from the occult Roslcruclan Society to which Sirhan subscribed.

In summariilng his own examinations ofSirhan which included placing the subjectunder hypnosis six times, Diamond said.

r"With absolutely no knowledge or aware-ness of what was actually happening in hisRoslcruclan and occult experiments, he wasgradually programming himself exactly likea computer la programmed by Its magnetic

type, programming himself lor the coming^assassination.

"In his unconscious mind there existed a plan for the total fulfillment of his side, paranoid hatr ed of Kennedy' and all whomight want to help the Jevre,

"In his conscious mind there was no aware-ness of such a  plan or tha t he, Sirhan, wasto be the Instrument of assassination.”

Sirhan's hatred ol Jews begun when his neighbor-hood in Jerusalem was bombed in the 1048 battle forIsraeli freedom. He was small and insecure and he

 began to dream of glory and heroics. When he cameto America, he learned that the United States govern-ment has a political affinity for Israel and a chronicsuspicion of Arab intentions and motives.

Lite became a series of fantasies. He bought arevolver nnd fired hundreds of rounds inlo imaginary

targets. He joined a group of mindcontrollei's calledthe Rosicrucians. He would light candles in front of a

mirror in his room, dwell upon love and peace, and gointo a paroxysm of selfhypnosis.

When he emerged, he found a notebook filled with

words calling for violence and assassination. He be-gan to believe 1hat if enough Rosicrucians got togeth-er and fixed iheir minds to it, they could cause Sen.Robert Kennedy’s campaign plane to crash.

There is no doubt that the

While this advertising costsconsiderable money (ChiefR o s ic r u c i an , “ lm p e r a to r . ”Ralph Lewis admits to “half amillion or more") the adi n v e s t m e n t r e t ur n isimpressively visibly in one full block of this booming city.

U.S. history repeatedly attes tst h e m a s s i v e A m e r i c anfascination for the bizarre andoccult, particularly when it iss k i l l f u l l y p i t c h e d a sauthentically ancient (likeMorminism), and gilded with theexciting allurement of a secretsociety.

But as Carlton Brown, a writerwho for purposes of investigation

‘’Secret, superwise andadvance d as these teachings arecthey can be mastered at home byanyone who can rea d.” (There iseven a home init iat ionceremony, with the “Neophyte"looking into a mirror, incandlelight, and chanting: “Hail,Rosy Cross.")

In actuality, therefore, the

only real secrecy about theRosicrucians is their income andtot al mem bership, whichlmperator Lewis, during aninterview, indignantly refused todisclose. He did concede,however, that members pay a

$10 initiation fee. plus $4.50 permonth; that there are membersall over the world; and that theOrder has grown considerablysince 1938, when court recordsreve aled a m embership of 60.000.(At the current dues rate, thiswould exceed $3 million perannum.) ,

Impefator Lewis, an elderly,whitehaired, mustachionedma n. vehemently and repeatedlycontended: "We are not areligion."

So m e in v es t ig a to r s o fRosicrucianism. such as U.S.Catholic magazine, would insome measure agree with thiscontention in describing the cultas: "A popularized mixture ofT h e o s o p h y , a l c h e m y .Gnosticism. Masonry. Vedanta.Ast ro logy . Cabal ism and

And while lmperator Lewisdisclosed that "We *are“ notdirectly related to the EgyptianPharaohs—only traditionallyrelated.” his erection of LittleEgypt in San Jose hardlyreinforces this disclaimer.

Rosicrucianism has been bou ncing aro und cul tic circlesever since Medieval Germany,

and there have been a number ofmodem manifestations. Therewas. for example. Dr. KarlGardner’s "Holy Rosikrucian

Order "—during Prohibition. Asa cult, the order was allowed by law to dispense sa cram en ta lwine, dui a band ol raiding Fedsdiscovered that Dr. Gardner had provided his 300 followers withsome 50.000 pints within one60day period (together withardent Biblical admonitions to"Drink no longer water, but usea little wine for thy stomach's

lmperator Lewis ardentlydenied any connection with this bran ch of Ro sic rucianism — although he did not deny reportsthat his own organization wasraided by the New York DistrictAttorney’s office in 1918. It wassubsequently relocated in SanFrancisco, then in Tampa, andfinally in San Jo s^

“ Secret  p o w e r . . , i n n e r

While thU advertising costs considerable money (Chief  Rosicrucian “lmperator” Ralph Lewis admits to “half a million or more”) the ad Investment return is impressively visible in one full block of this booming city. For the headquarters of A.M.O.R.C. (“Ancient Mystical Order Rosac Cruris”) is something of an Egypt ian Disney land-a  multi-million dollar complex composed of Egyptian museum and temple, planetarium, art gallery, Idols, tablets, Sphinx* amulets, scrolls an d scarabs.

U.5. history repeatedly attests uc ihwtt .Fumncui taw natron for the bizarre and occult, particularly when it is skillfully pitched as authentically ancient and gilded with the exciting allurement of a sec**t 

But as Carlton Brown, a writer 

who for purposesof investigation  jo ined the Rosicrucians,  observed:

“ Secret , superwise and advanced a* these teachings are, they can be mastered at home by anyone who can read.” (There Is even a home Initiation ceremony, with the “Neophyte” looking into a minor, in candlelight, and chanting: uHail Rosy Cross.”)

In actuality, therefore, the only real secrecy about the 

Rosicrucians Is their income and total membership, which lmperator Lewis, during an Interview, indignantly refused to

disclose. Hf did concede, however, that members pay a $10 Initiation fee, pit* $4.50 per month; that there are members all over the world; and that the Order has frown considerably since 1938, when court records revealed a membership of 60,000. (At the current dues rate, this 

would exceed $3 million per annum.)lmperator Lewis, an elderly, 

white-haired mustachioed man, vehemently and repeatedly contended: “We are not a religion.1'

Some investigators of  Rosicrucianism, such as U.S. Catholic magadne, would In some measure agree with this contention in describing the cult is: “A popularized mixture of  T h e o s o p h y , a l c h e m y ,  Gnosticism, Masonry, Vedanta,

And whilr lmperator Lewis disclosed that “We are not directly related to the Egyptian pharaohs—only traditionally

Rosicrucianism has been bouncing around cultic circles eversinoe Medieval Germany, and there have been a number of  modem manifestations. There was, for example, Dr. Karl Gardner's “Holy Rosikrucian Order”—durittf frohlbition. As a cult, the order was allowed by law to dispense sacramental wine. But

a band of n iO lf revs wco wm r  that Dr. Gardner had provided his 300 followers with some bQfiOQ

that hb own organization was raided by the New York district attorney's office in 191S. Jt was subsequently relocated In Sin Pmndwo, then in Tam pa, and finally in San Joee.

lmperator Lewis also rectikd 

that in Taropa one Albert Saunden was ousted from the Order. (Saunders publicly accused H. Spencer Lewij-the

A c c o r d i n g to Mrs. Mary English. Master of the local body, such a ceremony was customary in ancient Egypt from t h e Memphite to Ptolemaic times to mark the beginning of  the new year at the time of the spring equinox.

The event was symbolic of  new life in the earth and was commemorated by the use of  the basic food elements of corn, grape juice and salt.

Since The Rosicrucian Order traditionally had its beginning in the reign of Akhnaton in B.C. 1350. it memorializes its ancient origin Ih this symbolic feast.

 Rosicrucians Observe Rite

“Over 250 years ago upon the 

continent of North America, 

near wh ere now is located the 

city of Philadelphia, Brethren of the Rosy Cross, who had 

braved the dangers of the 

elements as well as the unjust 

prejudices of public opinion to 

reach this new land, laid the 

foundation of a great pyramid - 

a pyramid of ideals, which  

envisaged a future freedom to 

inquire into the nature of God, 

the universe, and self; ideals 

which conceived an era when knowledge would be applied to 

the betterment of mankind  without restraint by dogma,

selfish power, or fame,” notes 

Mrs. Mary D. Far low, Hobart.

Mrs. Farlow, Master of the 

local AMORC, Rosicrucian  

Calumet Chapter, states that 

Rosicrucians throughout the

world gathered to commemor

ate the building of the great  

pyramid in Egypt at the time of  

the autumnal equinox in September. The local Rosicru-. 

cians of Calumet Chapter held  

th e i r co m m em o ra t i v e cere

mony at the hilltop home of the 

James Andersons of Hobart 

with Mrs. Farlow , master , 

officiating. .

The Rosicrucians trace their 

traditional origin back to 

Akhnaton, Pharaoh in 1350 B.C., 

who has been described as the first great personality in 

history. Thus, they commemo

rate their ancient origin by the  

ritualistic and symbolic con

struction of a miniature  

pyramid. The placing of each 

piece symbolizes the cultural 

accomplishments of the Order.

Valley Lodge, the ancient  

Egyptians, from the t im e

New Year always on or

about the time of the ver

nal equinox, when the sun  

on its journey crosses the 

celestial equator and en

ters the Zodiacal Sign of  Aries, which always oc

curs on or about March 21.

This was considered the 

beginning of the New  

Year, because spring is 

symbolic of new life —  

emphasized by the reawa

kening of nature from the 

dormant period of winter, 

the bursting forth of blos

soms, and the grow th of

Integr tion of the self is nother  benefit of Rosicruci nism. Le rning to love the m sculine nd feminine 

spects in us will ssist one in getting long with the opposite gen-

der. Life is lived from the inside out, so if one is h ving problem with 

“women” or “men/’ perh ps th t is mirroring some unresolved conflict within. The integr tion of our sh d-

ow is the h rdest to ccomplish for it me ns th t one must respect our p ins nd f ilures ( s motiv tors) s much s our successes ( s sust in ers).

It is true th t G ry Stew rt w s imper tor of the Rosicruci ns for sever l ye rs. However, the unim-

port nt question for us is whether G ry Stew rt tt ined the st te of 

consciousness symbolized by the word “imper tor.” The import nt question is whether ny of us h s 

tt ined th t interior st te.

For those of us who h ve spent no little time in trying to publicize the existence nd ctivities of the Rosi-

cruci ns, your mention of its secre-

w or Id will ga th er for a cerem on y at which time they will reenact the building of the 

Pyramid of Cheops m Kgypt 

about 2900 B.C., ’* Meader


Accord ing to Meader .  

Rosicrucian tradition has it that 

the first stone of the Pyramid 

was laid at the time of the  

autumnal equinox. Unlike other 

pyramids that were erected as  

burial monuments during the 

age of the pyramids, the  Pyramid at Gizeh was built as a 

te mpl e of learning It is said 

that its construction demon

strates a knowledge of all the 

known scicnces of the period, 

including higher mathematics, 

physics and some of the fun* 

damentals of astronomy that 

are recognized today 

The Rosicrucians trace their 

traditional origin back to 

Akhnaton. who was Pharoah in 1350 H f . and who has been 

described as the first great |>er- 

sonahty in history.

Thus, they commemorate 

their ancient origin by the 

ritualistic and symbolic con

struction of a miniature  

pyramid. The placing of each 

block symbolizes one of the 

cultural achievements of the 

Order •

The ancient ceremonv will l>o ena cted Friday at Hp in at Anon Hall. 210 Plymouth  

Street, and is open to the public

Rosicrucians Plan Float

Santa Cnu R om  Chapter ofthe Rosicrucian Order is pre- paring a float (or the July 4 parade aa one of Its Bicenten-nial projects The float willdepict the Great Seal of the United States.

Kar l Goe i e l e , cu r ren tchapter master, says that theSeal is not just a work of art orao indication of sovereignty, but an important and mean-ingful symbol of the ideals and

aspirations of our foundingfathers.

Goesele feels that it is partic-ularly important at this time to bring this fsct to the attentionof the public

The Seal is the work of thechapter secretary. Ann Clark,and her mother. Laura Soleu,

who have done much researchon the symbutony of it. MrsClark reports that the allseeing eye and pyramid, whichalso are on the reverse of theAmerican one dollar bill, arevery old symbols which havelong been uaed by esoteric or-ders and by orders usingesoteric symbolism, for exam- ple the Rosicrucians and theFreemasons

It is known that BenjaminFranklin, who was a Rosicru-cian. greatly influenced thefinal design of the Great Sealwhich was submitted by thethird committee of the Con-tinental Congress.

Also participating in the con-struction of the chapter sBicentennial float Is Bill Shottof Watsonville

'It Is You, The Real YouBy MARTHA GOINS

What would Isaac Newton, Claude Debussy, Francis Bacon.Benjamin Franklin and Dr Margare tte Mitchell of Danvillehave in common?

They have been members of the Rosicrucian Order, an“august fraterni ty whose doctrines were hinted at by the earliest

 philosophers "Dr Mitchell has recently returned from a Rosicrucian con-

vention In San Jose, CalThe Rosicrucian (Rose and Cross) fraternity is the oldest

•continuing society in culture, she said. It traces its beginning toPharoah Akhnaton. 1350B C , to Socrates

Dr Mitchell explained she had been a Rosicrucian lor years.The teachings of the Order were intellectually stimulating lo the

iDoctor of Philosophy, a professor in Romance Languages.

The former Stratford faculty member said she had searchedfor a “meaning” to life and answers to '‘why," especially sinceshe grew up in Germany where, under the Nazi regime, mem- bers of her family disappeared never to be heard of again.

"I was not ten when Hitler came in power," she explainedThe scientific findings of the Order appeal to Mrs. Mitchell,

who noted the theories of harmony of the universe and the in-dividual.

“Everything is alive The earth is a living being. There arelife (orces so there a re adjustments, natural phenomena. Motionis basic law of material li fe."

in discussing the teachings, Mrs. Mitchell said each nationand religion have had mystics, “oneness of all — who have com-mon experience and knowledge related to the source of our beings "

“Truth does not go into hiding The world is a school. Wecome here to learn our lessons We are products of institutions,society, humaneness. I knew, I knew," she quietly repealed, “weare part of relationship to life, the mystical aspect of life."

“I did not have to be told to talk to my plants," she smiled.

(Mrs. Mitchell's plants are marvels Rich, verdant leaves,trailing philodrendon and oversize plants grace the porch and

living areas. She says she is attuned with her plants )

Mrs Mitchell explained the society is not affiliated with anyreligion and is not a religion. In reading of the literature, theRosicrucians would buttress the beliefs of the individual in God

“There is no dogma. You are a student. I have found thestudies, monographs and questions I have soon answered. I couldnot dotlusakm e."

She noted she felt more "selfawareness" and her relationshipto the world about her through the teachings of the wisdom of theages to modem lime.

“The whole universe. God's law and harmony, we tune our-selves. Life has meanings, we no longer grope "

"H tf you, "she said, “the real you "

E diting For A  Butterfly, Henry Sha* Admires Ginkgo Leaf 

 A Tinkerer , He Strides  Along Life's Hard Road 


Midway through a detailed description of  his rare ginkgo tree, Henry S. Shaw spots 

something out of the comer of his eye, breaks for his tool shed, grate a butterfly net 

But the winded creature Is gone, fluttering 

beyond the lonjf nws of cabbage, nnirms and 

chard which snake away frum Ihe side of  

Shaw's borne on Ingram Rnad.

‘T wish I could get that scoundrel” says the 

spry Tft yearoJd uith twinkles in both eyes.

‘lie ’s the fellow that makes the loopers dial

,4I used to enllcct butterflies but I had 

trouble with fungus geitlng all over the 

hufterflics I finally decided. That's enough:IlJhunt rucks, noi ftitterflips ’ It's easier just 

to wash the dirt off them and nut worry about 

the fungus on the butterflies.”

appears Un'lur-ioade. Siaw carefully replaces

He arums a tune ami laughs, points to an 

aluminum bird cage ho formed from scratch, 

exhibits tools he manufactured without dies.

“1 do a lot of tinkering.” he says. T m the 

greatest tbikerer you’ve ever seen.’’ He ne/Ieds, “I guess Jam a nut if there ever was one.”

( Southsiders

Shaw was bom with a broad streak of  

curiosity at the end of (he fifth month after the 

turn of this century. Since then, he has been 

learning all ho can about his world.

It is a wide world, he no‘e$. though it cannot 

be measured by standards which most people 

use to define a successful life.Shaw dropped out of the public school 

system in Jus native Halifax County before he 

completed the eighth grade. He worked in

I rades—making tobarrn bam flues in a sheet 

metal .shot at 12, later working in saw and 

grist mills, and finally spending three and a 

half decades cleaning loom reeds and har

nesses at Dan River Inc 

Along the way. he and his wife. Charlotte, 

lost three of their four children in “coming up 

the hard roaci!%They suffered their ov.v illnesses Near-poverty occasionally uTapped 

il>em in sorrow.

What made it worthwhile was Shaw's 

determination to continue an informal 

education all his life. He explains that 

determination simply: 'i f I’ve got to live in 

this world. 1want to know what’s going on.,T'

Anri so Shaw has t*vn a serious sradenr of  

or has dahbled in wUd life and plants, musical 

instrument?, rocks and gems, Indian ar

tifacts. painting, magic. photography, toot- 

making and numerous other fietcis.Fro* i long walks in the wilderness. Shaw 

returns to his hfrtisc with Jerusalem ar

tichokes, crimson clover. Egyptian onions, 

wild pekeweed and other wild plants which 

most rtfonlc- would stop on and forget. He

grows the?« plan!* and more in his garden 

and eats the sweet fruit o: his labor.

‘‘Thereare thousands of things in the woods 

to be ted just for the taking." he says. “And 

with the high cost of rood, it comes in handy. 

Wi Id foods are even more delicious than some 

garden plants. One must know at what stage 

to take them and how to prepare them."

Shaw plays everv string instrument known 

to man and owns many of them, including 

cello, bass guitar, mandolin, dulcimer. He 

has a 1916 Gibson guilar which he purchased 

in the late ’20’s while earning S13.01 a week at 

Dan Hiver.

“1 play strictly hy ear. Ttie heck with 

music,” he notes. 4,ff someone says play 

‘Won't You Come Home- Bill Bailey?’ ! don't 

want to be searching around for books of  


Currently, shaw plays electric string bass 

with the Dan River Retired Gub Band. He savs it took him a couple minutes to get the 

feel of the new instrument and then. "1 

started playing that thing like a mad bull 

running through a straw field.”

Shaw gives credit to the late Johnny 

Westhnook for teaching him everything he 

didn’t already know about music. He played 

with Westbrook's band all around the area for 

nearly 15 years.

“Mr Westbrook could play any instrument 

ever invented.” Shaw savs. “He was an in

spiring man. We also hunted for wild plants for many years. He taught me to stop tilling 

things If he found a snake, he threw it out or 

the path alive."

Svsw does not just collect “rocks'’. He 

searches for the perfect rocks to be cul into 

gems and be cracks open some of those rocks 

to find fossils. .

He has hauled hundreds of pounds of jade, 

agate, amethyst and quartz from just about 

everywhere in Virginia to his hack yard. 

Some* of the stones he has cut inm gems, including a clear quartz stone with 91 carats 

and 20B facets which c*omes dose to blinding 

the beholder when it’s held behind a light.

He has performed magic tricks since he 

was 12 years old and. as a “jackleg artist” 

most of his fife, has created works with oil, 

water color and pastels to adom the walls of  

his house.

Page 193: Amorc Folder 10

8/9/2019 Amorc Folder 10 193/245

When Shaw observes something which 

fascinates him, he often photographs ft. Owce 

he thought he broke his toe and did not trust 

the doctor's negative diagnosis. So he went 

tome and blew up the contact x-ray. Hr couldn’t find a break either.

“To u p s s   the crack was in my head, not in 

my toe.” he says, reveling in laughter at the oW joke 011  himself  

Shaw reacts everything he can find and 

talks with everyone wlio seems interesting 

and meditates on aO the significant things tie 


As a Rof-icrurian fa metaphysical In

vestigator). Shaw believes that all l)e does is 

related because everything on earth is part of  the Universal One.

“Rosicrucians study everything, both 

spiritual and physical,” be explains. “They 

(ton'! leave ofT anything Talso have a great 

respect tor natural law*. 1make ’em alt work  

for me. ’Itiat’s why 1get so old ”

Besides, Shaw notes, ihe mind rules the 

body and his mind is not about to allow his 

body to grow old.

“You always must question tife.V he says. 

“That's the way you learn. You leam to see 

things the average person doesn't see. You leam to see the small things that other people 

walk over. You get so sensitive its 

aggravating sometimes.’'

One of the things which aggravates Shaw is 

preservatives in food. He says lie con taste  

them and doesen’t like edibles which include 


\ le says lie also liears and sees things other 

people miss. "When I close my eyes. I see 

things there which have taken 40 or 50 years

of practicing to see,” he notes. “There's no 

end 1o (he wonderment.”

While Shaw has many friends, he 

sometimes has difficulty findra* people who 

are willing to talk wiJh him about the deeper 

mysteries of life. “Them ain't no end to 

conversation if you're talking con

structively,” he savs.

“It Irks me wtwn 1 read and try to contact 

people with mv interests and they tgnore it,” 

)>e adtfc. “Anyone wanting to contact me can 

drop me a card, as I don't want lo be  

swamped with phone calls.”

He smiles and slowly reaches for his net.

 Rosicrucians Praise Openness  But Danville Talk Attracts Few


Staff Writer 

People in Virginia and North Carolina seem to be “fairly**opeaminded and tolerant toward the R osicrucians, according to

Gene Flinter, master of the Triangle Rose Pronaos, In an in-

terview yesterday.“We don't have much of a prob lem," he asser ted *\Vc have

 prejud ice .”Flinter and several other Raleigh. N.C., Rosicrucians. mem-

 bers of Die Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC),

spoke to a group of 20 persons yesterday in the Danville Room of

the Fir st National Bank 

The program was organized and sponsored by a Danvillian,Dr. Margarcte K. Mitchell, of 160 Greencroft Place. She ad-

vertised the meeting extensively and said she was not pleased

with the meager attendance. She also declined to estimate Ihe

numb er of Rosicrucians who live in Danville.Mrs. Madge Doss, a Rosicrucian spokesman, explained that

the society preserves the anonymity ofits m embers during theirlifetimes. For example, she said, a highplaced political or

social leader might waul to keep his membership confidential because “some people might not understand ”

The Rosicrucians, as a group, do not involve themselves in

 poli tical activ ity , she added, but Individual members may be

very ac tive in politics.Many wellknown persons, she said, have been members of

the society, including TJiomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin,

various “ mystery schools” between the ages of 13 and 30 andwas in itiated by the Rosicrucian*

Keynote Speaker Edward J. Silber said, “The Rosicrucian Or-der, AMOKC, is officially recognized as a nonprofit, fraternal,

cultural and educational association, ft is nonpolitical. ”

The Rosicrucian Order originated as one of die mystery

schools of the “ancient wisdom” during Egypt's lBth Dynasty period. Both men and women have been included In the mem- bership since it s inception.

Silber said membership is open to anyone who "sincerelydesires” to study the metaphysical principals and universallaws the o rder espouses.

“Members are never required to accept or believe what theyare taught,” he emphasized, “They ore urged to be ‘walking

question marks’ and to investigate the principals for them-selves.”

The AMORC mails weekly lessons to members for homestudy. Subject* offered include The Meanings of Ancient Sym-

 bolism, Inquiry Into The Nature Of The Soul, Fundamentals Of

Mental Attunem ent, The Human Consciousness and others.

The heajlquartcrs of the order Is in Rosicrucian Park* at San

 jo se , uimornTa. The setting is similar to that of theorganization's Egyptian origin. .

The Rosicrucians believe there is only one, true God. Mem-

 bers include Chris tians as well as Jews, Buddhists, Moslems

and others.“Oriental experiments and sexual practices are not condoned

 by the order,*' Silber said. "The branch of vogn, tantn ck ,

teaches that the evolution of man's consciousness can be

achieved by sexual practices. Rosicrucians don’t have to

 become vegetarians or contortionists. ”Moreover, Silber stated. ‘The Kosicnician Society fcsnot anti-

church. anti social... It’s not against anything that is fine anddecent in our socie ty. ’’ * 

He also stressed that the order Is not a secre t society. “ It is a

 brotherh<K)d in the tru est sense." Put, Silber acknowledged,Rosicrucian instruction is limited to members

“We don’t want Uie teachings to be indiscriminately spreadaround,” he explained. The teachings can provide a person with

 power which could be used for destructive purposes, Silber ad-

ded.“Rosicrucians teach healing,” Silber said. “That

the wrong hands, could be used for destruc tive purposes .”

What do the Rosicrucian rose and cross symbolize?

Dr. Albert Doss, a Rosicrucian and Raleigh psychologist, said

the rose symbolizes man’s spiritual unfolding as he discoversthe meaning of life. The cross symbolizes the trials and

trJbuln lions that man experiences .

“And together,” he suggested, "they symbolize man’s

evolution ”The psychologist quipped. “We wonder if it’s going to protect

us agninst the swine flu. But we're all going to get shots

anyway.” The audience chuckled. .

Page 197: Amorc Folder 10

8/9/2019 Amorc Folder 10 197/245

Reincarnation is another Rosicrucian teaching. MBut." Dr.Doss advised, “ihe nonacceptance of reincarnation does not

 prevent one from carry ing on with the teachings."

Other beliefs of the Rosicrucians include:

 —The physical body is the temple of the living soul. —Five, and 12are “ myste ry” numbers.

 —Earth, fi re, wate r and ai r ar e the four elements of nature.

Silber said, “An understanding of God can be achieved onlythrough personal experience.”

Fllnter, the leader of the 4>member. Raleighbased pronaos,

said he became interested in the Rosicrucians because ofdissatisfaction with organized religion.

"1 felt exiled and isolated from God," he said. “ I have found

the Rosicrucian Order satisfies my search for a purpose in lie ."

He continued, “There's got to be a designer somewhere. Tbere

always has to be a purpose behind a cause. There's   always a

 plan. Maybe all the sta rs are p art ol a body — the body ol God.”

Dr. Doss pointed out that tho Rosicrucian Order had Its birthat the beginning of human history.

"Wisdom is never lost,” lie suggested. "It’s always there for those who have an open jninti."

Giving plants good care is necessary. Who would expect a child to grow without plenty of nourishing food, water, and sunshine? But children do not grow without loving. That has been proven over and over. And it is now being proved that plants need love, too, if one wants them to do their best, that i s ... When you talk to your plants as 

you do to your children or pets, there won’t be an immediate response like a coo or purr or a wag of the tail,  but there will be a gradual response of thick healthy leaves, lush coloring, more fruit and a wealth of beauty. This beauty will bring more joy to your life. This is the plant’s way of returning your love. — Rosicrucian Digest

RosicruciansTo Mark New

Year's RiteThe reenactment of a cere

mony that began in ancient Egypt more than 40 centuries 

ago will be the highlight of a 

local Rosicrucian conclave in 

Santa Cruz on March 24 

According to Marjorie 

Tholen. master of Rosicrucian  

Rose Chapter of Santa Cruz, the 

ancient Egyptians, from the 

time of Memphis to the 

Ptolemaic period, began their 

New Year on or about the lime  

of the vernal equinox 

The equinox occurs when the 

sun crosses the celestial equator and enters the zodiacal sign 

of Aries which always oocurs 

on or about March 21 in Kgypt, 

with the coming of spring 

While not now experiencing 

the advent of spring, those living in the southern hemisphere 

symbolically perpetuate the 

traditional beginning during a 

basic transition in the season 

This was considered the beginning of the New Year and was  

symbolic of new life

The Rosicrucian Order, 

A M O R C , is a nonreligious, 

philosophical fraternity which 

maintains that its traditional 

origin occured in 1350 B.C. dur

ing the reign of Pharaoh 

Akhnaton The Order com

memorates this ancient new 

year by a symbolic feast in 

which the celebrants partakeof 

simple foods corresponding to 

certain basic elements in na

ture: salt, corn and unfermented grape juice

New officers of the local chapter who will be installed 

include Bill Shott. master. 

Leola Fraust, secretary; Alice  

Pierce, deputy master, and Bud 

Thrift, chairman of the board of  

trustees.The ceremony will be at 

Ar ion Hall, 230 Plym outh St , 

Santa Cruz. Visiting members 

from neighboring cities also are expected to attend

Helen Merrick BondShe lives with her memoriesand writes for the future

MARY JANE FINEM i a m i N t w i R t p o r U r  

It is a small room in which Helen Merrick Bond lives now, but it contains 

her past, her present and her future.Her past is photographs: of her broth

er George Merrick, pioneer of Coral Gables; of Merrick Manor, the family  homestead, declared a historic monument two years ago; of her mother, a 

minister’s wife, who bore seven chil

dren, two of whom are still living.Her present is her writing: Nine inspi

rational books to date, which she says are not religious in content but “help people be nearer to God."

Her future is her writing, too: Her  mission, she says, is to write a book


 year until her death.

She has enjoyed wonderful times and weathered difficult ones in her 85 years, but she sees a purpose in it all.

" I believe everything in life Is our  

teacher, and so I welcome everything,'* she says.

Helen Merrick was born a twin, but the child who was her likeness died of  the croup one bitter winter In Duxbury, Mass., and shortly thereafter, the Rev,  Solomon Merrick, their father, decided  to leave the inhospitable North for Florida.

W ith his eldest son, 13-year-old George, Rev. Merrick, a Congregational minister, journeyed south to purchase a 

160-acre parcel of land with his $1,100 savings.

The year wa s 1898. The land — a bleak stretch of scrub pine and palmetto  covering coral rock — wa s four miles from the settlement of Coconut Grove. 

It did not look promising, but father and  son blasted it with dynamite and planted grapefruit trees there. Just south of  the glade, they built a two-room cottage.

A s the century turned into the 20th, Rev. Merrick sent for his family to join  him, and Mrs. Merrick brought Ethel, Medie, Helen and Charles to their new  

home. Helen was then 6.“Ev eryth ing w as a w ildern ess/’ she 

recalls. “I saw a panther once, face to 

face. It was a beautiful thing. It just stood there and looked al me.”

The youngest Merrick child, Richard,

was born a year after the family’s arrival in Florida — the first white child born in the as-yet-unincorporatod city.

Those early years were lean ones, but 

eventually the grove began to yield  profits along with fruit. The Merrick  

home was expanded, given a stone facade, a wide porch, a garage. The land  boom of the 1920s catapulted them into 

vast wealth, estimated in the millions, and young George Merrick built a city  

of fine homes.

“One day we were sitting under a big tree, and George put some slips of paper 

into a basket and said, ‘Now, Helen, pick a name and that's what we'll call the city,’ ” his sister remembers.

The name she plucked from the basket was “Coral Gables."

The Depression followed the land boom, and, for the Merrick family, loss

1The only thing you have to take with you is 

character.I f

followed gain. Land was lost, homes 

were lost, a vast fortune vanished.By that time, Helen Merrick had mar

ried and borne three sons. But her husband, Paul Kuhn died in a motorcycle  accident while she was in the hospital delive ring the third.

After three years, she married JohnBond, a contractor. Helen Merrick Bondwas in her mid-30s when she discoveredwhat was to become a source of immense strength for her: the RosicrucianOrder.

The minister's daughter says, “I always felt that there was somethingdeeper than what we saw on the surface. 1always sought the truth. 1was always asking questions when I wayoung.”

She says that she has found her answers in the philosophy of the Rosicrucians.

“I learned to concentrate and medi

tate,” she explains. “You have to keeyour vision high but your feet on theground. You have to open your inneself." %

Her beliefs encompass karma, astrology, reincarnation (she believes that inprevious lives she was three times agypsy and once “a high lady of qualityin Athens.”) Her beliefs marry the spir

itual, physical and mental, she says.“The only thing you have to lak

with you is character,” says Helen Merrick Bond. “If you don't have that, youhave nothing.”

Rosicrucians Mark New YearThe re-enactment of a cere

mony that began in ancien

Egypt more than 40 centuries ago will be the highlight of a local Rosicrucian conclave set for Friday, March 23, at 7:50 p.m at Arion Hall, 230 Plymouth Street, Santa Cruz.

According to Bill Shot!, mas

ter of Rose Chapter of Rosicrucians, the ancient Egyptians, about the time of the Ptoiemalc Period, began their New Year on or about the time of the vernal equinox when the sun cross the celestial equator and enters the sign of Aries This usually occurs on or about March 21 in Egypt, with the coming of spring.

While not now experiencing the advent of spring, those liv

ing in the southern hensphere symbolically perpetuate the traditional beginning during a basic transition In the season.

The Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, is a non-religious, philosophical fraternity which maintains that its traditional origin occurred during the 

reign of Pharaoh Akhnaton, in 1350 B.C. The Order commemorates this ancient New Year by a symbolic feast in which the celebrants partake of  simple foods that correspond to certain basic elements of nature such as salt, com and unfermented grape juice.

New officers of the local chapter who will be installed are Alice C. Pearce, master, and Lillian Boyle, secretary.

A star was carved on the apartment's corridor door and 

more were drawn on the apartment's walls and woodwork  inside the apartment, as was a cross with a single red rose

Case of the Giant Vegetables' rooted in mystery VALLE DE SANTIAGO, Mexico (UPI) -  

The case of J. Carmen Garcia’s giant vegetables gets curiouser and curiouser.

Gar cl*, the m arvel of the marketp lace In his vil-lage in a producerich valley in Guanajuato state260 miles northwest of Mexico City, perennially brings in 50pound cabbages and 10pound onionssnd 5feetlong coilard greens.

So how does he do it?He says a man — claiming extraterrestrial, un-

dergrounddwelling humanoids who live on giant

vegetables held him in a subterranean priaon — gave him a scrap of paper containing a formula ofsymbols. Garcia said he gained inspiration for hisown growing talents from contemplating the for-

mula.Whatever one thinks of the extraterrestrial con-

nection, the existence of the vegetables is unde-niable. Garcia produces them year in and yearout. Photographs exist. And Bill Robinson, a SanDiego Police Department information officer,keeps a 10pound Garica onion In his freezer in

San Diego.In February, United Preu International trans-

mitted an illustrated dispatch about Garcia baaedon an article in San Diego Home and Garden

Magazine by Roblnaon. Robinson had stumbledupon the giant vegetables, Garcia and his associ-

ate. Oscar Arredondo, while on a Mexican vaca-tion.

After the UPI dispatch, Robinson received over1,000 letters from wouldbe greenthumbs aroundthe world, requesting more information, includingtwo from U. S. Department of Agriculture plant pathologists in Flo rida and California.

Awed by the sudden interest, Robinson felt duty bound to return to Mexico to seek more informa-tion from Garcia. UPI tagged along as inter- preter.

Garcia was less than overjoyed to see Robinsonsgain, and it wasn't becsuse the visit interruptedirrigation chores on his 3scre parcel

“ Last week on one day I had people here from New Zealand, Venezuela, France, the DominicanRepublic, Canada. Germany and the UnitedStates," Garcia said. “I tell them 'Stay here sixmonths and I'll teach you the method' Finallythey go away, but others come. It's hard for me toget any work done."

A quick look around the tidy parcel disclosed nogiant vegetables among the rows of cabbage, to-mato and other plants.

“This is the winter crop, and I'm experimenting

now with getting higher yields instead of the giantvegetabiea. I think I've made a breakthrough with

calabazas de arbol (a species of edible  pump-kin)," Garcia said. "But some of these foreignerssay I can't grow the big ones so I'm going to growthem bigger than ever for the September harvest.Carambal I've been growing them since 1973, and1can do it whenever 1 want to."

He also said he did not want to diacuas hie for*mula "What is Important la tha t the way to growgiant vegetables has been put in s safe place forthe benefit of humanity." he said.

Tha chosen depository for mankind, it turn* out, 

la the Roakrucian Order of San Joae, Calif.

Garcia said he would not give the details of hismethod. But he did say he uses a little organic fer-tilizer, specifically pig manure.

' A spokesman for the Rosicrucian Order said theorganization had been given the formula but "wedo not have the faintest Idea whether it ia valid ornot."

Another official said his order is conducting sg

ricultursl experiments at San Jose based on thaformula

"Yes, the experimentation centers oo energizingthe seeds." he said. "The energy source? Theenergization Is imparted by the human mind."

Curiouser snd curiouser.
