Top Klan Post at 19, Owes It All to Carnegie Course HOUSTON (AP) — Dimmie Johnson, elected a Grand Dragon of the KIux Klan at 19, says he owes Ku it all to a Dale Carnegie personality improvement course. Johnson, a Houston machinist, said the Carnegie course “has really helped me in the Klan work. I’ve shown a great improvement.” He was elected Grand Dragon of the Texas Fiery Knights of the Ku Klux Klan at a meeting Sunday in Dallas. Johnson beat out two other men for the No. 2 post in the Fiery Knights behind Imperial Wizard Scott Nelson of Houston, who estimates membership at 200 Johnson said he has been in the KKK about a year and is anxious to use his new position to improve the image of the organization “Our major problem in public relations is the image of the Klan.” he said in a telephone interview. “We’re trying to stay away from this violent sort of thing. Every now ana then we get somebody in who wants this violence thing, but I don’t know anybody in it now who believes that way, although we’re not going to he pushed around by other tropic ” He said he joined “because I’m a white racist and I believe in thc separation of the races and I believe the Klan is the best way of achieving that goal.” Johnson, a bachelor, said his active membership in the Klan hasn’t affected his personal life, hut he said, “I don’t find many girls who think as I do on this. A girl won t expound on rac ist ideas as readily as a man will.” He said some Klan members have had trouble with employers, but he said there’s been no noticeable effect at the sheet metal firm where he works, “People just seem to accept it,” said Johnson “I’m planning on running for political office one day, probably as a state legislator,” he said. “I don’t know if the Klan will help or not.” Whole thing.” thc statement and one at Sidon.
