Bolin Praises Elks Program For Youth Rain Halts Ku Klux Meeting KNOXVILLE, Tenn.. July 14 CB John Kasper, 27, fiery se- gregation leader from Washington, D. C., said today he would be willing to spend a year or two in prison if it would bring about the acquittal of his 15-co-defend- f-nts in the Clinton criminal con- tempt trial. Kasper made the statement to n-ewsmen at a small, rain-drench- ed rally sponsored by the White Citizens Coimcil. A black and white sign bear- ing the legend "Callahan Road KKK" marked the turn-off point from the main Knoxville-to- Chnton highway to the scene of the rally. About 15 carloads of men, wom- en and a surprising number of children attended the meeting, which had been described by the dark-browned Kasper as a Rain spilling from black clouds caused members of the crowd to run for their cars before Kasper could introduce one of the main speakers, William Hendnx, of Clearwater, Fla., who described himself as "imperial officer of the Southern Northern Knights of the Ku Klux Klan." Kasper said the rally was not a Klan meeting. "I'm not a member of the Klan and never have he told reporters, standing in the ram. "But I believe in the Klan. We work closely with them." A nationwide alarm was flash- ed for two unidentified men who delivered the gruesome cargo to a railway express office yester- day. It was destined for ship- ment to an apparently fictitious person in Los Angeles. The delivery was performed so casually police believe the men were unaware of the trunk's contents. But it is hoped they can lead the way to the killer who shipped the trunk and pro- vided New York with its first trunk slaying mystery in years. The victim was about 45, 5 feet, 7, and weighed 164 pounds. He had receding reddish-brown hair, graying at the temples, and Greenish eyes. He had been shot in the middle lower chest, the right cheek and left shoulder with .22 caliber slugs. Dr. Sidney Weinberg, assistant medical examiner, said he be- lieved death occurred last Fri- day. The presence of blood around the vi c t i m 's lungs indicates that he was probably alive when he was placed in the Dr. Weinberg said. The body was found when an express agency employe noticed an odor coming from the small trunk addressed to "Hal Jeffer- son, Ambassador Hotel, Los An- geles, Calif." A check at the hotel showed no such person there. Elaborate precautions had been taken to conceal the dead man's identity. The body was nude except for white under- shorts. It was emcased in plas- tic sheeting. The bullet holes and nose and mouth were taped, pre- sumably to prevent a telltale trail of blood. Two week old newspapers covered the corpse and cam- phor mothballs had been scatter- ed in the cheap metal trunk.
