SAN LUIS OBISPO, CALIF. SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. (AP) _ L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the Church of Scientology, signed his will the day before he died, leaving 99 percent of "tens of millions of dollars" to the church, a Scientology leader said.

Hubbard's will, signed with a scrawling signature and accompanied by his thumbprint, was filed Wednesday in San Luis Obispo Superior Court. Hubbard, 74, died of a stroke Jan. 24.

The exact amount of Hubbard's estate was not disclosed, but church leaders said the will provides a trust for his wife and four of his five children. A fifth child, Ronald DeWolf, had been disinherited for denouncing his father and the group, called a cult by some critics.
