GEORGE ß. THOMAS
HAS QUIT THE KLAN
OF VIOLATING HIS WHITE
KLAN PROGRAM IS TOLD

ASM BAYS XB3.1ÖNOJ
George B. Thomas, member of the
Portland school board, was accused
of violating his obligation aa a nwa-
ber of the Ku Klux Klan at the meet
ing of the board Wednesday evening.
In reply Mr. Thomas declared be
would never be a klansman again.
The question of klan membership
waa raised during a heated discus
sion of the award of th« architectural
contract for the new Washington
high school to the firm of Houghtai-
ing A Dugan, the award being pro
tested on the ground of the Catholic
affiliations of the firm.
T. F. Drake, raid to represent a
body of Masons, presented the pro
test saying in the course of hia re
mark»: "Both members of the firm
of Houghtaling & Dugan hav« at
least brts affiliated with the Knights
of Columbus in the past—an organi
zation that ia and has been unalter
ably opposed to the public schools. I
need not remind you that the com
pulsory school bill was fought by
every force the Catholic hierarchy
could command.” He also charged
that Thomas had voted for the award
because of his soreness over his recent
defeat for the city commiraionerahip.
During the colloquy a spectator
asked permission to question Mr.
On hia request being
granted he said:
“Is Mr. Drake a klansman?”
"Yes, sir,” replied Director Thomas.
“You have violated a solemn obli
gation,” returned the questioner, “a
thing no white man would do. You
are not a klansman.”
“No, and I never will be again,"
said Mr. Thomas.
The Rev. Dr. Oscar Haywood na
tional lecturer for the ku klux klan
and general evangelist of the Calvary
Baptist church, New York city, has
announced that when the klan com
pletes its organization in New York
the cry will be: “On to Canada.” From
there and the British Isles, the lec
turer said have come 500 or more re
quests for membership in the secret
organization, and so the invisible
empire will seek to spread its domain
over the civilized world. An inter
national ku klux is announced aa the
next plan of the masked mystery.
British Columbia Anxious
Victoria, B. C.—Reported activities
of the ku klux klan in the interior of
British Columbia, particularly in the
neighborhood of Cranbrook, were
being investigated Saturday by pro
vincial police under orders from At
Public notice of the proposed or
ganization of a branch of the klan
at Cranbrook by H. Moncroft, of the
Canadian division of the order, with
the object of “enforcing law and
order,” resulted in immediate action
by provincial authorities.
“We are not going to permit any
one to step in here to undertake the
enforcement of law and order,” the
Washington, D. C.—(N. C. W. G)—
Semi-official announcement that the
president will not issue a proclama
tion directing the Ku Klux Kian to
disband, as urged last week by Sena
tor David I. Walsh in a letter to At
torney-General Daugherty, has not
dispelled the impression that the pres
sure of circumstances will soon induce
the administration to take a decided
stand against further extension of the
sovereignty of the invisible empire
within the United States. The presi
dent’s opinion, it is authoritatively
stated, is that violations cf the law
attributable to the klan constillute a
“local iatue” which could properly be
met by the local authoritiee. In ad
dition. it is intimated that the chief
executive is doubtful of the efficacy
of presidential proclamations in cases
of thia nature.
Almost coincident with the publica
tion of Senator Walsh's letter to
the attorney - general, Representative
Harry B. Hawes of Missouri intro
duced a bill in the house designed to
curb the spread of Ku Klux propa
ganda through the mails. If this bill
become« a law it will prohibit the
sending of anonymous letters or post
cards through the mails except when
addressed to a law enforcement offl-
