Press Service.) Sir Basil Thomson, former director of the criminal Investigation depart ment of Great Britain’s detective cen ter Scotland Yard, warns of the uang er of the ku klux klan In an Interview published In the New York Herald of Sunday, June 3. “The new klan professes to wage war against modern social evil/’ said Sir Basil ‘but In reality it fosters nnimos it> against the Roman Catholics, the Jews and the colored people. It can do no possible good and it may do much harm. ‘ Its use of the mask opens the door to (he adoption of disguise by violent criminals who will not be slow to copy the form of the klansman’s mask when they have old scores to settle. "Some unthinking people have liken e l the movement to the Italian Fascist movement, but the Fascist works open lv and scorns the use of masks. Tha kl.insman’s defense for the mask, o« rather the defense of those with whom I have talked, is that some people are shy of joining a movement, however much they approve of Its objects, 1( they have to come out into the open. One would have thought that recruits so destitute of moral courage were scarcely worth erfrolling. I venture the suggestion, which I make without any disrespect to the klan. that with out the masks there would be no re spect to the kl-’n. that without tli3 masks there would he no recruits.” OVER CONCLUDES ANTI-LYNCH TOUR ARRANGED BY N A A C P.
