ADMIRAL BENSON IN BOSTON SPEECH PLEADS FOR LOYALTY (By C. N. W C. News Service) Boston, Feb. 26.--A stirring plea for loyal adherence to the basic prin- cilles of Americanism, and for the re- [ sistanee of foreigu influence which 1 might serve to undermine the Repub- lic, was made by Rear Admiral Wil-[ liam S. Benson, U. S. N., retired, who, I as the official guest of the City of] Boston and members Of the United' Spanish War Veterans, was chief speaker at "Remember the Maine" observances in this city. Foreign Inf,uence "We want no Loyal Coalition her%" he declared, "and we should not let any foreign influence come into our midst. We don't want our textbooks corrupted and our books of education filled with the foulest kind of lies. We want to have our children taught American principles; that this is a land founded for the opportunity to enjoy true liberty, in the best sense of what the word means, and to enjoy the pursuit of happiness, "We want the right to worship God as we see fit; and unless we main- rain these rights the 267 men who lst their lives in the blowing up of the Maine have died in vain, as have the thousands who sleep in foreign graves." Mayor Curley Rejoices Mayor Curley, another speaker at the exercises, which were held in Fa- neuil Hall, hailed Admiral Benson as the "real American." "l rejoice," he said, "in these days of un-Americanisms, that we have one real American who, after 47 ears of faithful service in the Am- .rican navy, dares to send forth a real message." 'The crowd jumped to its feet and shouted its approval. "It was under his guidance," con- tinued the Mayor, "that our transport system was maintained during the war, and it must not be forgotten that not one transport went down. Admonished Sims "What are we to say to this man who admonished one who dared to criticise his Americanism, who ad- monished him as a parent would have admonished a wa.-,ard child, who simply said, 'Don't let the English pull the wool over your eyes, Sims? "His message to us is that of a life- time of faithful service to the Nation that recognizes above all the charac- ter of the individual, and of service to Almighty God and to the best flag that the world has ever known." Earlier in the day Admiral Benson Little Rock, ArkanSas, Saturday, March 3, 1923 REV. D. J. CURLEY "IS NEW BISHOP OF SYRACUSE, N. Y. (By N. C. W. C. News Service) New York, Feb. 23.--The Rev.

News Service) Alexandria, La., Feb. 16.--Members of the Ku Klux Klan need not expect appointments to public office in the State of Louisiana, according to a let- ter from Governor John M. Parker by L. B. Baynard, Jr., in response to Mr. Baynard's request that he appoint two men from Rapides Parish. "I have made some mistakes," wrote Governor Parker, "but it was in doing what I sincerely believed best for the entire state,' anti now I wish to write you very frankly that as long as I am governor I do not intend to appoint to any office Of any kind any man without having his assurance that he is not a member of the Ku Kax Klan."

News Selwice) Washington, D. C., Feb 26--The discovery of the tomb of the Egyp- tian king Tut-ank-hamon according to information concerning the find now available for the public, is not likely to prove of any great value from an historical viewpoint or to shed any great light on problems confronting either modern scholars of ancient re- ligions 'or biblical research workers, according to the Rev. Dr. Henry Hy- merrat of the Catholic University, one of the world's most distinguished Egyptologists and contributor of the article on Egypt to the Catholic Ency- clopedia.
