Is Charged With," Says Massa

Klux Klan is un-American, Representa
tive Tague of Massachusetts has an
nounced that he will demand a con

resolution providing for an investiga
tion by a special committee of the
house of representatives. He will in
troduce it when the house is recon
vened for business on Oct. 3.
"I have received many complaints
about the activities of the Ku Klux
Klan," said Tague. "They are trying
to organize throughout New England.
"The organization is anti-Catholic,
anti-Jew ami un-American and should
be done away with. It is a scandut.
1 understand the department of jus
tire has been Investigating it, and
my resolution will request the depart
ment to inform congress what it has
learned.
"If the light of publicity is turned
upon the grotesque, fantastic, lu
dicrous garb and ceremonies of tiiU
intolerant organization which pre
sumes to take the law into its own
nands and holds sway through the
appeal to superstition, it will be found
the sponsors have reaped a ri h har
vest. -
"This organization parades itself as
a revival of the original klan. The
members of the original klan were not
guilly of the atrocities the new or
ganization is charged with. n ex
posure of the new klan will cause new
nation-wide ridicule, under w! ich it
will shrivel up and disappear."

GOING TO WAR AGAIN.
Probably Every Doughboy Sailing for
Spain Had Swore "Never Again."
New Orleans. La. To the tune of
"Hall! Hail! The Gang's All Hare,"
blended with a babel of various na
tional airs, 258 youths, including moia
than 150 former American service men
who have volunteered here for serv
ice in the Spanish foreign legion
against the Moors, sailed down the
harbor aboard the steamship Cadi
for Barcelona.

V. J. Hall of Detroit, an American
who served (luring the war with the
Canadian forces and wears four dec
orations, who goes with the assurance
tliat when he reaches Spain he will
receive a captain's commission.

fight under a foreign flag, - do not
claim to see any glamor of romance
in the expedition, but frankly say
their Inability to get jobs at home and
the assurance of 59 cents and three
meals a day are the compelling mo
tives behind their action.

Alalttiiftrifa Over Pninfptt Walls
Have you had the experience after going to
considerable expense to paint your walls, on
the theory that they would be washable the
same as your woodwork, of finding that after
washing them they were grimy, streaked and
unsatisfactory? Have you hesitated at the
expense of again repainting them?
If the paint is solid on the wall and not
scaling, go over it with a coat of Alabastine
and be pleasantly surprised as to effects pro
duced and saving effected. Alabastine may
even be used over old soiled wallpaper that
is firm on the wall not printed in aniline
dyes or with raised figures.
You Can Always Get Alabastine
There is hardly a town where Alabastine is
not carried in .stock by dealers who carry
paints. If you do not find it and are offered
something else claimed to be just as good,
write us and we will tell you how to easily
secure Alabastine.
