i list Church at Eastport lßt night in
connection with a special service
which was addressed by Rev. John
0. Ford. paßtor of the Baptist Church
at Brooklyn, Anne Arundel county.
The church was crowded by a con
gregation of men, women and chil

had been heralded in advance, and in
i' cidentally it was announced that Rev.
John Howard Eager, of Baltimore, act
ing pastor of the church, had become
a Klansman. At the close of the serv

j invitation of Rev. Ford to become
members of the Klan, or at least to

Answering some of the attacks that
have been made against the klan to
the' effect that it is anti-Catholic, anti-
Jewish and anti-negro, the Rev. Mr.

, Blades. Denny Lewis. George Heard,
John Novak and last, but not least.
, James ("Jack ") Hart were arraigned

Walter Socolow, the ninth man in

BOV NEARLY CRUSHED
UNDER AUTOiEN HE
JUMPED FROM WAGON
Recklessness of children and dan
ger that lurks in their path from
heavy traffic over the streets of the
city, especially motor vehicles, was
brought home only too strongly at
A 10-year-old school boy. returning
to his home for the noon recess, was
riding around Church Circle on the
tail board of a horse-drawn vehicle
As the dray drew into West street, the
lad, without looking, jumped off and
fell sprawling in the middle of the:
driveway. Immediately behind him
was a big touring car, driven by a
naval officer. But for the fact that
the momentum of the car was slight,
having slowed down because of the
! congested traffic, the wheels would
have passed over the boy's body and
instant death would more than likely
■ been the result.
The officer at the wheel happened to
spy the child and immediately applied
the brakes. As it was. the left front
wheel grazed a leg of the lad. Thor
oughly frightened, the boy scrambled
to his feet and ran off.
Recently a somewhat similar acci
dent was averted on West street,
when a 7-year-old boy started across
the thoroughfare without taking a
j glance in either direction. He was
| within a few inches of the front
I wheels of a motor car when the
' grinding noise from the brakes being
j applied, alone drew the attention of
t the lad and prevented him from get
| ting directly in front of the car and
