Special Dispatch to The Tribune
ATLANTA, Ga? Sept. 25.?Bitterly
denying the truth of attacks upon the
character of both Mr?. Elizabeth Tyler,
head of the women's department of the
Ku-Klu.v Klan, and himself, Edward
Young? Clarke, Imperial Kleagle of the
Knijrhts of the Ku-Klux Klan, has ad?
dressed a communication to Colonel
William J. Simmons, Imperial Wizard
of the order, urging that the resigna-,
tions of Mrs. Tyler and himself, now
in the hands of Colonel Simmons, be
accepted at the earliest moment possi?
Mr. Clarke declares that this action
is not the result of a desire to for
sake his post in the klaa, but is due
to his consideration of Mrs. Tyler's
feelings in connection with recent at?
tacks upon her character.
"If I stay in the work and keep Mrs.
Tyler on the firing line," the com?
munication stated, "there is no depth
to -which trie enemy will not stoop to
accomplish their despicable purpose.^."
Pleads E'rhanstion
Mr. Clarke adds that his condition of
physical exhaustion also makes it im?
perative that he turn his post over
?to others, and he declares it is hi3 be?
lief that the klan will triumph in the
present controversy.
"Of course, it is unnecessary for me
to tell you that as soon as I get a brief
physical rest," he concluded, "I intend
to proceed to have those who have so
maliciously slandered me answer to the
fullest extent of the law, and I believe
I can better carry forward this fight
on the outside of the klan than in
same, or as a member of its official
''I know, through inside information,"
Clarke's letter added, "that the per?
sonal character of practically every
leader of ''he work will be attacked,
bnt they can stand it and come through
at much less cost than if a woman is
forced to stand and face their vil?
lainous and lying attacks.
"As you know, I have been closely
a.ssociated in business with Mrs. Tyler
for several years, and have found her
to be honorable and dependable and a
woman of the very highest type in
even,? way, and the malicious charge:;
which have recently been made against
her in the public press are absolutely
Simmons Believed in Capital
Members of the Ku-Klux Klan here
are awaitinrj with eagerness the return
of Imperial Wizard William J. Sim?
mons, who has been out of the city
since Friday and who is reported to
be in or on hi3 way to Washington.
While other members of the order
i either do not know or have reason to
be silent ns to his whereabouts, Im?
pf nui Chaplain Caleb A. Ridley stated
that he understood the Imperial Wizard
was in Washington, but did not know
whether in- was there as a result of
the Federal investigation or on some
i i : InesB of t he order.
Mr:*,, Tyler issued a statement to?
day in which she said that she thought
: Mr. Clarke had made a mistake in giv?
ing up his work to prevent further at
tacks upon herself; that she hoped and
: believed that Colonel Simmons would
'refuse to accept Clarke's resignation
i regardless of his insistency; and that
she had pledged ihe Klan that she
would continue tir* work as long ?<*.
Colonel Simmons wanted her to. even
| if she received no compensation for it.

Woman's Death in Fall

Whether a woman fell, leaped or was

tenement building at 659 First Avenue
I early yesterday is a mystery which de
! tectives of the K?st Thirty-fifth Street
station are endeavoring to solve.
The woman was known to other ten?
ant-, of the buildin-r merely as "Mary,"'
and was a roomer in the rear top floor
; flat of John Doniie. The latter told
; the police that she had ?rone to the
? roof to sleep and either had fallen or
i jumped off.

fine strange phase of the case was
that several clothesline?, broken by
her body in the course of her fall, were
about six feet away from the wall near
the spot said to have been pointed out
by Doniie as where she stood jus; be?
fore she hurtled to her death. As the
lines were only about eight feet below
the roof level, tenants pointed out that
it did not seem possible that she couid
have struck the lines had she merely
stepped off the roof accidentally. This,
to the tenants, indicated that she had
leaped or had been hurled from the

It is well to keep an eye on
the word that takes a new
meaning. When a perfectly
good word assumes a defini?
tion that our grandfathers
never associated with it, and
goes junketing around the
business clubs and conven?
tions, getting its name in the
papers and forming unseemly
associations with other words,
it will bear wratching.
The word Service has been
doing that very thing, and
it is about time Service came
to its senses and went back
to work at its old job.
All over this country there
are people who, when they
buy something, don't want
any more than they think
they are going to get.
Service to those people is
not something for nothing
that they do not want, but
something that the}' do want,
delivered when they want ir,
at a price that is vv ithin reason.
If you buy a vacuum clean?
er or a player piano or a cook
stove, you don't want some?
body calling you up every
two or three days and asking
if you are satisfied. You don't
want to be filling out, stamp?
ing, and returning Service Re?
port Cards which contain
blank spaces wrhere you may
fill in the names of a few
friends who may need just
such a purchase as yours. AU
you want is to be let alone
until the piano gets out of
tune or the belt on the sweeper
breaks (which it will), and
then you want to telephone
somewhere. In less than three
hours you want a Ford runa?
bout to show up in front of
your house. You want to see
a young man get out with a
stout black bag, come in and
fix the thing, collect his sev?
enty cents and go on his way
That is service with a small
but competent s, and it is
better than a money-back
guarantee, better than re?
quests to ''bring it in and let
us look at it"?even better
than sweet letters from the
Service Department. There is
a legitimate need forthat kind
of service. There is not so
much need for the kind that
the sales department capital?
izes and tries to sell and spell
with a capital S.
If a thing is worth having,
it ought to be worth buying
and paying for. > Selling cost
is a proper and necessary eco?
nomic expense, but not a sel?
ling cost which includes the
cost of giving away thing- to
peopie who don't want them.
If you have something that
peopie ought to buy, you tell
them about it.
If the goods are right and
the price is right and you tell
your story often enough and
long enough, you won't have
to worry about Service. Your
dealers won't pester you for
Service, either. You can ren?
der most of the service you
need to render anybody right
out there in your manufactur?
ing and shipping departments.
And the cost of this service
will go into production cost,
where your distributors and
your consumers want it, and
not in your selling cost, where
you had better not let people
even suspect it is.
