"Highwinds" # 5 from 1984. Evidently it is from the Appollo days."That poor lass in the photo standing behind L. Ron is Julie Blundell.tamasin-sp, do you know if the unhappy looking girl in this photo is still alive? Her cheek looks swollen and her eye black. I hope LRH didn't slap her like Kima said she saw him do to a boy.Interview with Kima Douglas,
Oakland, California, 27 August 1986
Kima Douglas was very much a typical Scientologist during her years in the Church, from 1968 to 1980: she was young, English-speaking, well-educated and totally committed. She was well-qualified to join L. Ron Hubbard's naval élite, the Sea Org, which had been founded in 1967. Her past nursing experience in her home country of Rhodesia was discovered at a time when Hubbard's health was rapidly deteriorating and for seven years, from 1973 to 1980, she became a unique combination of nurse, aide de camp and confidante. When she was interviewed in 1986 by the British journalist and writer for his biography of Hubbard, Bare-Faced Messiah, she had an extraordinary story to tell. The following is a transcript of that interview.
These are just a couple of short excerpts:
"He'd always have 2-3 little girls with him. ......One messenger would walk with him and a couple went behind. They were little girls in white shorts. There was never any sexual link. Never touching, nothing. There might have been a little voyeurism, he liked them in their white tops and shorts. Budding pubescent girls in tight, tight jeans. I think it was just, if anything, slight voyeurism. but no innuendoes at all, nothing.
The chain locker on the ship was large, lit during the day through the hole where the chain went through. There was a bucket for a toilet. I know children were put in there and kept overnight.
I saw him physically violent twice. He slapped a boy who answered him back and slapped him across the face with an open hand, and knocked him off his feet."

Seeing a child given as a servant to LRH/Scientology makes me sad.
I think it is a tooth abscess, I could be wrong,as for the blackish looking eye, it is possible it is a black eye, however it is also possible she moved slightly when the photo was taken. She has a very long dark fringe. However it is also possible she has been hit. Which ever way you want to look at it, why is a young girl in attendance with LRH when she is quite obviously in pain. A swollen face like that is agony.And, yes she does look younger than 10, more like 8. And, yes it is extremely sad. So many children abused by scientology tech and by L. Ron Hubbard.
