_ Paula thinks she should get the lie detector tests over with so she can get home.
Paula said that Bunny said we were like a govt. within a govt. And Hoyt said the same thing. So it is interesting that they both said the same thing, and neither have visited. Bunny said he has heard it elsewhere also, and when Paula asked where, he said Paula didn’t need to know where. Paula said if she hears that feedback, she will know it came from him and nobody else.

They are kind of counting on Helen to do the same thing with // they are counting on Jim overreacting with Leo Ryan and acting the same way. Tim Stoen and his friends have kind of a two-pronged stragedy. That is, if Leo Ryan can’t see JJ and Jonestown, then the press won’t be very friendly and will tell all about what is going on.
They figure if Leo Ryan does get in here, then at least one of the PT people will want to leave with Leo Ryan. And then that person can talk to the press, and it will put more pressure on Jim to let people out of Jonestown.
So their idea, is no matter what, they will be able to break up PT, whether or not they get to visit here.
