Imperial Wizard Drops
As His Testimony Ends
Simmons Continues Defense of Klan at House
Hearing, But Cross-Examination Is Post
poned Because of His Health.
The testimony of William J. Sim->
mons. imperial wizara of the Ku
Klux Klan. came to a dramatic
conclusion before the House Rules
Committee yesterday when he col
lapsed fn his chair after speaking
fur an hour and a half in defense
of his organization.
Simmons had recapitulated the
points he had made in two days of
testifying, and had referred to crit
ics of the klan whom he said were
leaning toward the committee as
he finished, he announced with a
gesture. "Gentlemen. I'm thr- ;,h."
Thr-n he fell back in his 'hair,
resting his head in his arms on the
I table, and went into a paroxysm of
roughing. Aides of Simmon*,
crowded to his help. Committee
members remained unmoved, but
the audience was visibly affected.
There was an outburst of hand
"We *vill refrain from any such
demonstrations in this room." said
Chairman Campbell, sternly.
Afterwards. Campbell announced
that because of Simmons' condition,
a cross-examination of him would
b? deferred. Simmons had com
plained of physical weakness, and
had told the committee that he left
a sick bed to come to Washington.
The collapse of the witness was
the second incident to stir the
hearing during the day. Senator
Watson, of Georgia, had inter
rupted the testimony with a de
mand that he be permitted to ask
Chairman Campbell held that out
siders were not permitted to ask
"But I'm not an outsider.'* crid
Watson with some heat, shaking
his flnger at Campbell. "I am very
much on the inside and I intend to
stay inside. I am a Senator and
Col. Simmons is one of my con
stituents. 1 intend to see that he
gets fair play."
Campbell told Watson he could
ask his question later, but added
? that the Senator could exercise his
' Senatorial rights and question the
witness. Simmons meantime had
stepped over and put his hand on

the money for which came from the
pockets of taxpayers. Then he
stalked from the room.
Simmons placed before the coni
M mittee copies of the klan ritual and
other of his documents. He read
! passages of the ritual to which he
wished to direct especial attention.
These, he said, showed that the klan
was guiltless of the charges made
K against it.
One of the questions asked can
didates in the ritual was, "Are you
; a native-born. Gentile, American
"You mean you exclude Jews?"
| asked Representative Rodenberg.
"Yes, sir," replied Simmons, add
I in*r that there were many Jewish
! orders that do not admit Gentiles.

"Jesus Christ had his Judas, i

Then he enumerated klansmen

from the sale of robes and other ap

SPROUL OR CROW
LIKELY CHOICE AS
Penrose's Influence Said
To Be for Latter, Now
More of leas political chaos will
be stirred up. not onl^ Id national
politics, but In Pennsylvania State
politics as well, when the succes
sor to the late United 8tates Sena
tor Philander C. Knox is named.
filther Gov. William C. Sproul. of
Pennsylvania, or State Senator
William E. Crow, of Uniontown,
will be named to fill the vacancy
caused by the sudden death of Sen
An authority In "Inner" political
circles late last night stated that
while the logical choice would be
the chief executive of the Key
stone State, from a geographical,
a* well as a purely political view
point, Senator Crow would be the
man best suited to represent West
ern # Pennsylvania in the Unitea
Reavm* of Mltaatloa.
A resume of Pennsylvania's more
recent political history sheds light
on the situation. At the Repub
licsn national convention last year.
Gov. Sproul's name was more than
once favorably mentioned for Pres
ident of the United States. In 'fact,
the Pennsylvania delegation en
masse supported him. But a tele
phone wire, stretching from the
convention platform in rhicago to
the home of United States Senator
Penrose in Philadelphia, was the
cause of Gov. Sproul's early retire
ment from the Presidential race.
The governor's reception at the
Penrose home immediately subse
quent to his return form Chicago. It
is said, was marked by such cool
ness and political enmity that Penn
sylvan a politicians began at once
tc identify themselves with either
one of two political cliques?the
Sproul forces and the Penrose con
tingent. From that time until the
present. Pennsylvania State politics
have been functioning around these
two powerful combines. ?
Hardlna May C'oafer.
In the selection of a successor, it
is only logical that before many
hours have passed. President Har
ding will confer in some way with
Senator Penrose. Wrien President
Harding, soon after his election, sat
down to the task of selecting the
var ous members of his Cabinet, it
is known that he several times com
municated with Senator Penrose, at
that time convalescing in Atlantic
If President Harding sees fit to
confer with Senator Penrose rela
tive to the successor to Senator
Knox. Gov. Sproul's chances to real
ize at this time his political aspira
tions, it is said, are slight. If. on j
the other hand, the President takes(
the matter Into his own hands. Gov.
Sproul may be given carte blanche |
to have himself appointed for the!
remaining months of Mr. Knox's
