With one out Young got an infield hit off Ward's glove and stole second as Kelly fanned. Irish Meusel then singled to center and brought Young home with the tieing run. The count remained in its tightly knotted state until the seventh with its fatal break for the Yankees and the Giants' winning tally. McNally, whose hit brought in the Yankee's only run, injured his right Shoulder in sliding for second when he was forced ther in the second in ning, and Frank Baker, former home run king, relieved him.

KU KLUX HEAD THROWS DEFI AT His nmvo (Continued from Page 1-) ties north, ea3t and south. Denying that officials of the or ganization received , large sums as salaries or bonuses, Mr. Simmons said: Spending Money For Education "We are spending the surplus money of the Klan in further build ing and enlargement of Lanier tlni versity, Atlanta, Ga. We have spent and are spending on Lanier UniTer- sity, the sum of $150,000. He introduced into the record the entire record and expenses pertain ing to Lanier University, also the entire receipts and expenditures of the Klan and added: "The university is not sectarian, it does not teach, nor even touch, the Ku Klux Klan. The only two courses that are compulsory is a course in the fundamentals of our civilization which are the tenets of the Christian religion using the Holy Bible as a basic text book and the teaching and inculcating the fundamentals of pure Americanism and development of correct citizenship. Not Religions Intolerants "The charge is made that we are organized to preach and teach re ligious intolerance and especially that we are anti-Roman Catholic, anti-Jew and anti-negro," Mr. Sim mons continued. "The works of the Klan prove this absolutely untrue. Many alleged outrages have been attributed to the Klan, but none of these were against Roman Catholics, Jews and negros pur se, and none were committed by the Klan. It is in deed strange that if we organized to persecute the Roman Catholics, Jews and negros that nothing has been done against them." "Discussions involving any man's religious belief are never allowed in a meeting of the Klan." - Declaring that the attacks against the Klan were originated and start ed by the New York World, "whose main purpose is circulation and re venue," the witness said: "The World is the stronghold of the Democratic newspapers and the Democratic party, ana it nas . oeen said by those (in a position to know that if the World could, by shrewd propaganda and untruthful slanders, force a Republican congress and ad ministration to throttle or destroy a purely loyal American protestant fraternal organization, as it the Ku Klux Klan, that its hundreds of Thursday Morning, OctnU thousands of3lTr and those who think u Klan, would, at the pl,i ft from now, frrget preference and volt the n ticket.
