L. Ron Hubbard was wearing a naval officer's uniform when he first knocked on the door of the stately house in the Westminster section of Elizabeth. The uniform made a good first impression on Jim Kellogg's mother.

"One thing a landlord always worries about when you rent out a house is to not get a bad tenant," recalled Kellogg when I spoke with him last week. "To show up in your naval uniform was to show you're not going to be a bad tenant."

Never mind that it was 1949 and the war had ended four years earlier. The man who would soon found Scientology liked to dress like a ship's commander and would continue to do so for the rest of his life.
