BY NOISE KLAN SELECTS SITE SOUTH OF STREATOR FOR DEGREE WORK REPORT 100 CANDIDATES WERE PUT THRU THEIR PACES LAST NIGHT WITH 500 "GHOSTS" SUPERVISING THE JOB. "For the second time within forty eight hours, a big Klu Klux Klan initiation occurred in La Salle Cojmty, when at a meeting which was heiu five miles south of Streator last night, one hundred citizens of the county were initiated Into the mystic order. Fully five hundred white robed members of the Klan were in attendance at the ceremonies, it is said, with the hundred candidates in the midst of the large circle lighted by more than 200 bright automobile lights. The meeting took place late In the evening in a secluded spot, which to day bore little traces of last night's session, when the one bundled men knelt and pledged their allegiance to the American Sag, the American nation and the organization. Bright ribbons of light shot from the flery cross in the center of the circle, far out unto the night. On Saturday njight "tWO hundred candidates were taken Into the order at a big meeting held near Utica, More than one hundred machines wended their way to the scene of tie- initiation carrying the members and candidates. The session is said to have been fully as impressive as on previous occassions, and no effort was made by inquisitive eyes to I penetrate the ceremonies. Only those of the inner Circle were permitted to j witness the rites, and the one hun dred men. who in day time are just business or professional men, likely to lie encountered hundreds of times ! every day in the ordinary walk in life, were taken into the society, and , given the right to don the ceremonial garb, and enjov the secrets of the Klan.

HARDWICK NAMES SUCCESSOR TO SEN. WATSON Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 3. Mrs. W. H. Felton, 87, of Cartersville, Ga., became the first woman mem her of ihe United States Senate today when she CONSTANTS ON LEAVING HELLENA FORMER Kl G AND QUEEN OF: GREECE SAIL FROM ATHENS TO SECURE REFUGE IN PALER MO, AN ITALIAN CITY. Athens. Oct. 3. (A. P.) King Con Itantlne, before embarking for Paler mo, Italy, where be is to make bit home, made a plea for hearty support lor the new king and queen, "I have had some unhappy days and do not regret this revolution," he added. He expressed a wish to1 return later as a Simula citizen and visit his son, the new king, but the revolution committee declined to sign a document empowering him to do so. Former Queen Sophie wept unre strainedly on the shoulder of the new queen, whom she commended to the love and support of all. One of Constantine's last acts was to Initiate legal ste-ps to assure the fortune of the widow of his dead son, King Alexander, who married Aline. Manos, a Grecian woman not of roy al blood, and by whom be had a daugh ter. King George and Prince Paul, who will henceforth be know n as the "dladoque," or crown prince, mo- tored to OropuS to bid farewell to their exiled parents. Assurance that Constantine's audi- cation was sincere and final was giv - en by his son and successor, George If, to the members of the revolution ary committee. The king is also un derstood to have acceded to the re quest of Col. Qonatos of the executive committee that he use all his influ ence to prevent any attempt by Con- suuiuuc a mm in,.- n, neiuie ms i e- instatement, uonatos told the king the committee was determined to smash any reactionary movement. Venizelos' acceptance of the special Grecian ambassadorship to the Euro pean capitals is interpreted in Ath ens as clearly indicating that, while the character of the new regime is avowedly nonpartisan the Venizelists will be predominant. Venizelos will be backed at home by Politfs as foreign minister, the same portfolio he held when Venize los was premier, and by Minister of Finance Diomedes, who has ever been one of the most active lieutenants in the movement. The newspapers today announce that the British minister signed the visitors' book at the palace yester day and they interpret this as British recognition of the new king. CRISLER'S RECORD IS LAUDED BY HERAMINER The following story beside his smil ing face Speared in the Chicago Her-ald-Kxaminer about "Fritz" Crisler of Karlville, 111.: " 'Fritz' Crisler is one of the most potent reasons why an All-American' football team means nothing at all. Crisler came to Chicago in 1916, weighing 14S pounds, and with prac tically no experience. Last, year lie Was the class of the cenference ends, if not the best in the country. When Chicago went to Princeton last fall it was very largely the work of Crisler when Ca.ptafn Keck was picked Dp and dumped where he shouldn't be. Bverything that a real end should be. "risler had one fault. He played so hard that during; his career he was crippled half the time. He went info very play with the throttle wide open, because he would not save him self. Only once during his years on the Maroons was a penalty called on him. despite his savage play, and that penalty was a mistake. And the rea son that Crisler is a strong argument that 'All' teams mean nothing is that be failed to get any kind of mention down east " Marriage Licenses. Rov J. Meisel. Westtleld township.
