Ku Klux Klan Deal
DALLAS. April 21—(A>-Details of
his part in an alleged contribution of
$10,000 to the gubernatorial cam
paign of Felix D. Robertson in 1924
were related by Hiram Wesley Evans,
imperial wizard of the Ku Klux
Klan. here today in his $150,000 libei
Klan, here The Austin American.
Evans denied he advanced $10,000
to the campaign charged by Geo.
K. Butcher, former secretary of the
Dallas Klan 66. in the latter's testi
mony last week.
Evans said Butcher had wired Z
E. Marvin of Dallas for the money
when the dragons and titans of the
organization were in session on an
island off the coast of Michigan in
September. 1924.
‘ As I recall it. Mr. Marvin was
unable to raise the money on the
island," the witness said, ‘‘and I
notified Dr. J. B. Hill, my brother
in-law. at Dallas to advance the
money to Mr. Marvin or whomever
1 1 ..1.. ’■ ..1111.......
he directed. I let him have $5,060.1
Be said he could not recall wba
ther Marvin had stated th
money was for political purpose*
but that he would presume that 1»
cl*d because of the manner in whic! ■
the money was obtained.
“If Mr. Marvin had wanted thj
money for Klan purposes, I wou:
more likely have wired the Allan*, j
office to let him have It there,' th '
witness declared.

Advantages Found I

*
ra t . - -dL
... A Different and Better Performance—First and foumart,
there is La Salle performance!—something more than mare
transportation. Different from anything you haw mr
experienced. You “feel” the difference. Brillianee—
smoothness—unfailing reliability. The reason: The famous
Cadillac V-type 8-cylinder power plant. More than 400,000
cars equipped with these engines
... Easier Gear-Shifting—If you have never shifted Cadil
lac-La Salle gears, you arc due for a surprise. You shift froi_
second to high or high to second without hesitation at any
reasonable speedy There is never a clash. Shifting is easier,
quicker, quieter. The reason: The Syncro-Mesh Trans
mission found only in Cadillac and La Salle cars.
... Finger-Tip Steering—La Salle steering is so easy—in
congested traffic or over country roads. No steering strain
or whip. The reason: New Cad iliac-La Salle Harmonised
Steering.
k
... Velvet Action Brakes—Another reason for the complete
control and consequent greater safety La Salle owners enjoy
is the instant responsiveness of the Safety-Mechanical
Four-Wheel Brakes. Only the slightest pedal pressure is
required. They do not overheat.
... Fisher and Fleetwood Coachwork—You discover a wide
difference in bodies between La Salle and other cars of similar
price class in La Salle’s better style, greater beauty and finer
finish. Fisher and Fleetwood coachwork is the reason. For
greater safety, windows, doors and windshields arc equipped
with non-shatterablc Security-Plate Glass, without extra
charge. *
. . . Lowest Price, Quality Considered—Easy Payments—
Where else can ,you equal these advantages? La Salle is
I priced as low as $2385, f. o. b. Detroit. Payments arc
made easy by using the G. M. A. C. Deferred Payment
Plan. Your present car may well be sufficient to take
care of the first payment.
SALLE is priced as low as *2385/^0—1
