His windows have been shattered time and time again and threats sent him that he has to Quot get the Speedway gleaned located at Speedway City Are now fretting so used to showers of Quot Irish confetti Quot that they pay Little attention to it except to replace their windows. Real venom used Van s garage in Arsenal Avenue is one of the chief Points of attack by the vandals. The garage is located at 239 North Arsenal Avenue and when it is said that the aliens Are attacking him with venom. It is a literal and not a figurative statement. On last thursday night they placed a six foot Snake in the end of his garage. The Snake which was it most venomous creature was l a ported As there Are no Snake like the one found in Indiana. Bach night the proprietor s sign is torn Down and other depredations committed that Are too foul to put into print. However they Are in keeping Ichih the methods employed by the Vandal squad. Attlee from the Concrete missiles hurled missives Are being sent through the mall by another Branch of Quot that in these missives is seen the hand of Joe Roach Champion form letter writer.

To Date or. Amelia Keller who is neither Catholic jew nor negro has not offered any advice As she did when the Brooks Phi a tardy became the Point of attack for Anonymous letter writers. The most Peculiar thing about the letters is that the writers seem to All enjoy the same train of thought even the the wording of the letters. And this same train of thought is that voiced by Joe Roach Assassin sponsor a a the in american Unity league. Coli cadence is a most Peculiar thing. The fact that the color of the taxicabs seen near the spot where windows Are being smashed Are almost invariably the same color. This is just another coincidence no doubt. Paint rubbed off however the most outstanding coincidence is that none of the vandals Are Ever taken up by the police who can spot a newsboy blocks away. Whether or not the reason is that no members of the Vandal squad Are caught is because some of the paint on the taxi has rubbed off on the backs of the police during a Rush in traffic is not attend Church next sunday Shea s Market a kinds of fact fruits and verb tables 1539 Roose text Atcon Webster 2348 the Orange front floors Laid finished by american Universal method.

A Fevo streets left the Rumor which stated that Quot if the Al did not hurry up and Parade there would be no a sweets left on which to Parade Quot is without foundation. It was started it is believed from the fast that Somo Ohe is said to have stated that the mayor was going to permit More private institutions to take Over no re of the City streets. The Story is greatly exaggerated however As there Are still a number of streets in Lafayette that have not been turned Over to private institutions. Ali etc or or not there will be any Streftis left on which the klan May Parade the fact remains that the or Gan Zatlen is enjoying a most Phe fio Tsehai grow in Lafayette and Tippecanoe county. This is attested to the great number of candidates if Alft into the organization at the Epton meetings held and the Large crowds which attend the open meet figs which Are new being held All Over the county in addition to those held at the fair grounds which were puichftse4 while mayor Durgan was delivering a speech before the in Ameri Ltd a Lenity league in Indianapolis. Springfield stages huge a affair continued from Page 1 made their Way through the close packed lines of spectators. The boys band of Alliance was met with wild applause All along the line of March. During the evening one of the most elaborate displays of fireworks Ever Given in Springfield was staged by the organization. The display was most gorgeous and the Large crowd was thrilled with the Many novelties in the pyrotechnics that were provided for the occasion. Throng hears addresses the vast throng was addressed by speakers of National note Olio Avert Given close attention by their audience. One of the speakers explained that it was one of the principles of the klan that it strive for clean politics throughout the country but not to enter into politics As an organization. Following the addresses the Clark county glee club rendered a number of selections among which were Quot face to face Quot and Quot the old rugged smoothness marked the handling of the crowds throughout the Day the police department giving assistance to the klansmen in handling traffic in every Way possible. Much Surprise was voiced by newspaper men who were in readiness to Check up on the Parade and see that the number of marchers was not exaggerated by the clansmen. Adding machines were furnished them with the result that the exact number of marchers was tabulated. It totalled 10,081 and furnished food for thought to those who Altaj s accepted klan figures Quot with a Grain of the Day s demonstration showed conclusively that the klan is very Strong in Ohio and has put to rout All stories to the contrary. Big Parade at Marion is Success continued from Page 1 hundreds of were parked when All available space was used in Goldthwaite Park. The addresseij., which began shortly after one o clock lasted until late in the afternoon. Several cities were represented in the Parade which was held in the j evening there being Small delegations from each of the following cities Elwood Indianapolis. Kokomo. Fort Wayne Hartford City Muncie i air mount. Gas City and Jonesboro. A feature of the Parade was a Large Flag carried by forty klansmen. A number of women found places in the procession.

The other hand not one single proven not of lawlessness by the klan organization it would appear to any fair minded and thinking person that the statement by governor Walton that the logging in Oklahoma Are to be Laid solely at the door of the klan ,1s a statement of either a misguided or badly informed governor or a part of a nationally Organ lied Effort to discredit the klan parallel to and yet More effective than the Mer Rouge fiasco. It is with much reluctance that i would make such a grave statement against a governor of a great state but with the mass of facts now before me it leaves no other alternative. Milton Elrod editor the fiery Cross. Governor will deceive no one the statement by governor Walton will deceive no one familiar with the past political record of the Oklahoma executive and people Are fast becoming familiar with the tactics of governor Walton and his recent outburst of Antl klan real can Only react against him As the truth gradually comes to the surface. It will take a much larger Man that he appears to be to put up a proper front and no amount of grandstand playing will Patch the political fences. Behind or. Walton s martial Law crusade the people of Oklahoma discern various ulterior motives Many interpret his activity As just so much cheap political fib rubbery. It is no secret that he wants to be United states senator from Eastern Oklahoma. He has admitted As much by using the same general methods by which he was elected governor of the state and he is now making a political bet against the knights of the Kun flux klan. Apparently he believes he can Rush the order Lay Down a barrage of spurious issues create dissension among the decent people and unite the undesirable minorities of the state in sufficient numbers to win the senatorial Toga. However one May dare Prophesy that he will fail again. There Are those who believe that revenge May be one motive involved. It is a matter of definite record that Jack Walton did not always frown upon the knights of the Kun flux klan indeed there was a time a Hen he desired to become a member of the order through absolutely irregular procedure because out of his jurisdiction and without the required Luves ligation. A member of the order who by the Way is no longer a member gave or. Walton the obligation when his petition and Check the latter bearing a special annotation to the effect that he could not be Active were sent to the klan of which he wished to be a member recognition was not granted to him. Knew his record the klansmen in that Community knew his record As a Public official As they also knew his political affiliations and they did not deem him a desirable Man for membership in the order. That or. Walton should not think altogether kindly towards the organization which rejected him in this manner is not entirely contrary to human nature. But there Are an increasing number of citizens in Oklahoma who suspect that governor Walton s anti klan activity is but a smoke screen behind which he Hopes to obscure his or escue failure As the chief executive of that state. Rather than deceiving the people however it is serving to refresh their memory. They have n Ore or less forgotten his jazz band election Campaign and his swashbuckling barbecued inauguration but they Are thinking More seriously than Ever of some important matters. For example they recall Tho manner in which he threw state institutions of higher education into politics and How Quot in the chaos that followed the state lost its outstanding educators and a Pink Radical was appointed president of he a. And m. College at Stillwater. Okla. It is True klan demonstration anti Kian mayor and attorney worry no one but selves by their actions by staff correspondent Oraw Fordsville ind., sept. 8. A last Friday was gala Day Here and it is estimated that there were several thousand men and women of the Kun flux klan Here attending klan Day at the Montgomery county fair. By far the largest crowd that has Ever attended the fair was present there Friday night to witness the klan demonstration put on by klan no. 23, of Crawfordsville assisted by court 60, Montgomery ladles order. Local klan of socials were Given but Short notice in which to prepare for the fair and consequently the affair was not As thoroughly planned As it should have been. The fair Assoc a Teloh requested that the klan take charge of the fair on Sim Day before and it was not until monday that plans could be started. Friday afternoon three local speakers delivered splendid addresses at the fair ground to the crowd in the Amphitheater. The speakers were All ministers two from this City and one from Brownsburg. Each speaker was warmly received by the audience and opinion As to the better speech was equally divided among the three. Lawyer attacks klan at the same time a minister was speaking another meeting was being held downtown. There a local lawyer was addressing the Montgomery county teachers and he found time to inject Quot some of his poisonous venom into his talk by condemning the klan. His words were reported directly to the fair ground by klan courier and the lawyer had not yet finished speaking until the minister had hurled the klan s reply. Between speeches my co worker of the fiery Cross also spoke to the crowd. During his talk he urged the support in the local legion s popularity contest of certain candidates for the queenly honors. As All of these candidates won in the contest which closed that evening it is not so remarkable that Crawfordsville s anti klan police Force and worthy mayor refused to do As they had agreed Load the Mardi gras Parade the next evening in Honor of the winning candidates. The awarding of the candidates was also in charge of the anti klan lawyer who had denounced the klan the Day previous. Fiery Cross truck present the klan took no part in the Mardi gras Parade on saturday but held a Short Parade Friday night during the klan demonstration at the fair grounds. The klansmen and ladies met at the Odd Fellows Hall and marched to the fair grounds. The Parade was led by a Robed horseman followed by the color guard and the exalted Cyclops of klan 23. The fiery Cross distributing truck came next followed by nearly 200 men and women walking or in Well decorated floats. Reaching the fair grounds the klan line marched through a surging sea of enthusiastic humanity. The crowd was policed by the horse effect worked very nicely. The pa-1 alien Public opinion was aroused Rade moved promptly Al seven thirty i and political pressure became some throw gig the principal business Liat acute that Jack Walton found streets of the City. Every foot of it necessary to get from under the available space was taken by those i Pink appointee. More recently it who witnessed the procession and i ass been discovered that he is Plung the windows in the buildings lining ing the state into debt at such a rate the streets Over which the procession moved were filled. There were a Little More than 1,000 marchers. The display of fireworks which was the most gorgeous Ever seen in Marion followed the Parade. Among other sets the usual program of klan fireworks was Given including the Little red schoolhouse the american Flag mounted klansmen etc. The Celebration was a huge Success although the crowd was held Down considerably by the heavy rain.

With the Rush after 1 o clock it was plainly seen that thousands started after the Sun had peeped through during the late morning hours. Tens of thousands no doubt were held at Home by the rain. There was no demonstration at the fair grounds As none had been planned despite the distorted reports that would make it appear that the klansmen intended to appear in regalia. Nothing of this kind had been stated in the Story of the event in the Piery Cross and nothing had been said about a demonstration at the fair grounds. In fact Orde Rajs sued to klansmen throughout the state were to the effect that there should be no regalia in evidence. This was adhered to strictly by the visiting klansmen. Joe cite lord s Prajer the big crowd of klansmen which broke the records for the week at the state fair enjoyed itself during the Day among the Many different exhibitions and in the City. Only at six o clock when thousands of them gathered in the race track enclosure did they congregate. During the singing of Quot America Quot a slight rain again began to fall but it failed to disperse the crowd until after the recitation of the lord s prayer by the klansmen. This rain again checked the flow of klansmen into the grounds and thousands who were in the City left without going to the fair grounds for the fireworks display. Soring a drastic anti flogging Bill which it Hopes to introduce at a special session of the okla Ioma legs statute.
