Oath Taken by Firemen
Here is the revealed paragraph of
the klan oath, which the prosecutors
of the firemen deciare unfits them
for public service:
“I swear that I will keep secure to
myself a secret of a klansman when
same is committed in the sacred bond
of klanship, the crime of violating
this sacred oath, treason against the

dispatch from Moscow, April 3, "Mon

the Catholic church in Russia, con

executed by a firing squad.”
Many protests against the inflict

by other governments, including the
Unitesi States. The Federal Toqard
of Churches, representing 20,00(^000
Protestants of the United States
urged the Russian government to re

of humanity and religious 1'berty."

also added their pretest as did Bishop

of the United States, protested
against a sentence which would out

on account of the unfavorable influ
