Tuscaloosa, Ala., Oct. 27.---Coinci- dent with the public appeal of John H. Bankhead to Gov. Bibb Graves to disband the Ku Klux Klan in Ala- bama, Tuscaloosa Klan, No. 14, after vigorously applauding an address by a local leader of the hooded order, commendiag the recent action of At- torney General McCall for resigning from the organization and pushing the prosecution of many floggings, accepted the resignation of its Exalt- ed Cyclops, and discontinued its ac- tivities, it has been learned. Disbandment of the Tuscaloosa body is attributed to the attempt of the state organization to send a Klan evangelist, the Rev. Earl Hotalen, to this city for a "Protestant revival." Bruce Shelton, selected to act for the disbanded organization, issued the following statement: "We adjourned sine die, subject to my call, if and when I see fit to call the organization. The Klan in Tus~a- loosa has never had the slightest trouble of any kind. We attribute that to the fact that it has been con- trolled entirely by local men and al- ways has been, and still is, one of the bigges~ klans in the state. "The immediate cause of the break was the determination of state offi- cers to send 'Hotalen to Tuscaloosa to put on one of his tent m'eetings. We objected and were overruled; there- fore, we adjouISned sine'die. We have never been in sympathy with any of the rough-house tactics used in some places. We do not intend to be a party to such conduct. We feel that a barrel of rotten apples is still a barrel of rotten apples, even though it has one good apple in the middle. "We believe absolutely in the an- nounced principles of the klan, but will not continue to function under the present conditions. "The chief of the klan, C. E. Moore, made a speech at the meeting in which he referred to McCall as being just as good a man as he had ever been and that both he and all true klans- men were in hearty accord with Me- Call's ideas. The klan applauded Moore." NON-CATHOLICS GIVE TO CATHOLIC SCHOOL CALL IT TAX-SAVER (By N. C. W. C. News Service) Marblehead, O., Oct. 29. Non-Ca- tholics here have ~oined in a plea to the taxpayers of this school district to make liberal donations to the drive of St. Joseph's Catholic parish, to show their "appreciation for the en- ormous saving in taxes which is caus- ed by the maintenance of St, Joseph's school." This appeal is made in the follow- ing resolutions which have been given wide publicity. "Whereas St. Joseph's parish of Marblehead, Ohio, maintained, en- tirely at its own cost, for the last 35 years a parochial school taking care of an average of 150 pupils and sav- ing thereby the taxpayers of~Dan- bury township annually several thousand dollars, not taking into consideratio~ the :original investment for ground and building and "Whereas said congregation is just now conducting a ten days' campaign to raise at a supreme sacrifice, $15,- 000 among its own members for an absolutely necessary new building. "We, not communicants of said parish, but members of various Pro- testant Congregations or of no church affiliation, feel it fair and just to help in this undertaking. "The undersigned, therefore, do appeal to all taxpayers in this School District and ask to show our appre- ciation for the enormous saving in taxes which is caused by the main- tenance of St. Joseph's School by a donation towards the new building. was born in Northumberland, A. D. 657 and when twenty years old went to Ireland to study under St. Egbert. Twelve years later, after going to Rome and receiving the blessing of the Pope, he reached Utrecht and be- gan to preach the gospel to the pagan the gift of miracles. Tuesday, Nov. 8.---The Feast of the Holy Relics. Protestantism regards the veneration which the Church pays to the Relics of the Saints as a sin and contends that this piofis practice is a remnant of paganism. The Council of Trent, on the contrary, has decided that the bodies of the martyrs and other Saints who were living mem- bers of Jesus Christ and temples of the Holy Ghost are to be honored by the faithful. Wednesday, Nov. 9.---St. Theodore Tyro, Martyr, in his youth was en- rolled in the imperial army. He re- fused to obey an order of the Em- peror that all Christians should offer sacrifice. When his commander tried to win him with gentleness and al- lowed him to remain at liberty he set fire to the great Temple of ~sis arid made no secret of his act. After cruel torture he was condemned to be burned to death. As the flames rose a Christian saw the soul of the martyr rise like a flash of light to heaven. Thursday, Nov. 10.----St. Andrew Avellino, at the age of 36 entered the Theatine Order. For fifty years he was afflicted with a most painful rupture but would never use a car- riage. On the last day of his life he arose to say Mass but was stricken at the altar. While he was convulsed in agony the fiend in visible form ad- vanced to seize his soul. Then as his brethren prayed and wept, the voice of Mary was heard, bidding the Saint's guardian angel send the temp- ter back to hell. A calm and holy smil settled on the features of the dying Saint and he breathed forth his soul to God. He died November 10, 1608~ Friday, Nov. l l.--St. Martin of Tours, when a mere boy became a Christian Catechumen, against 'the wishes of his parents. He was noted for his great charity to the poor. In 372 he became Bishop of Tours. His flock, though Christian in name, was still pagan in heart. Unarmed and attended on]F by his monks, St. Mar- tin destroyed the heathen temples and completed by his preaching and mi- racles the conversion of the people. His last eleven years were spent in humble toil to atone for his faults, while God made manifest by miracles the purity of his soul. Saturday, Nov. 12.---St. Martin, Pope, occupied the Roman See from 649 to 655. Because of his opposi- tion to the Monothelite heresy he in- curred the enmity of the Byzantine court and was seized and taken on board a ship bound for ~Constantino- ple. After three months at sea he reached the island of Naxes where he was held in confinement for a year. He finally reached the Imperial Court and was then banished to the Tauric Chersonese where he lingered for four months in sickness and starva- tion and then died. ANGLICAN CONFUSION AIDS COMMUNISM, ENGLISH BISHOP SAY (By N. C. W: C. News Service) London, Oct. 24.--The confusion existing now in the Anglican Church is preparing the way for Communism Bishop Henshaw of Salford told the Catholic Women's League last week at Manchester. Absence of definite religious teach- ing is the cause, he contended. Speak- ing of the same condition of affairs in the schools, the Bishop said that if it was not definite religious t~aching, it was not religious teaching at all. i Where there was no religious but only secular teaching, the teaching must I of necessity be anti-religious, because it gave ~celigion a secondary place in the mind of the cliild and placed it 'outside the practical politics of life. the Constitution and the laws of our state," says Mr. Bankhead. He points out that a deplorable condition has been reached in Ala- bama, and that since last election "a reign of hooded outlawry has prevail- ed in many sections of the state. This head asks. "Why should an order continue to function which is foment- ing so much discord among our peo- ple? Those who desire to prevent Catholics from holding public office in Alabama do not need a secret po- litical party to measure swords with less then 2 per cent of the voters of the state, and such an organization is not to be maintained merely to boycott Jews in trade and commerce.' Referring to Senator Heflin, Mr. Bankhead says : "Senator Heflin, after Imperial Wizard Evans called upon the Klan to retire him from office, has taken refuge in the Klan camp and is now out-Heroding Herod. No one has yet heard a word from the self-styled 'leader of the plain people,' either denunciation or mild objection to the unlawful treatment accorded many plain and humble people by members of the 'Admiral's' crew. It seems hopeless to expect aid from this new and zealous proselyte." * * * * * * * * * * * * STATE LEGISLATURES * chological symposium at Wittenberg College, Springfield, Ohio, last week. "Such will not come to pass for centuries, if it ever is achieved," de- clared the woman psychologist, the only member of her sex on the pro- gram. "The possibility of politicians and statesmen turning to scientific methods for development of legisla- tive acts is little else than a hazy dream. "The economic motive which actu- ates our statesmen .and politicians to the preparation of legislative pro- grams is too strong to permit any scientific approach to supplant it." In referring to the position of those educators and scientss wh otiindulge in "idealistic hopes" that society will soon enjoy scientifically prepared leg- islation, Dr. Washburn said: "These educators attack most of our present- day legislation as 'makeshift' acts made in an attempt to remedy a so- called evil, which usually lead to a chain of unseen results." Dr. Washburn, herself an educator for 24 years, is chairman of the Na- tional Research Council Committee on Feelings and Emotions, Washington, D. C., and is one of the two women who have been president of the American Psychological Society. ARCHBISHOP GLENNON Rev. Msgr. Peter J. Dunne, INVESTED FR.
