Ku Klux Klan is 200 Strong in Durant
The Durant papers have received notice that the Ku Klux Klan is 200 strong in that place and also the Klan has sent out notices to gamblers, hi-jackers, bootleggers, bad women, and undesirable characters to find other fields or suffer the consequences.
Of course no one knows who the members of the Klan are, but they do know the purpose of the Klan is for good government and good citizenship.
There can be no complaint from the Klan if they accomplish the purpose of ridding the community of undesirable characters. No good citizen has anything to fear from the Klan.
