Some notes on the Klu Klux Klan
t a t e a suit which some are saying has "lowered the boom" on the state's present apportionment apportionment of both Congressional and legislative districts. Some notes on the Ku Klux Klan: A sign used by the Klan to announce its rallies at various various small towns in Eastern North Carolina recently has an extra "K" which causes some, puzzlement. The sign proclaims a rally of the "KKKK" and no one seems to know whether the extra "K" stands for Klavern or Karolina, or what. Announcement of a Ku Klux Klan rally at Aurora this week contained the notice that the ladies auxiliary would auction off homemade cakes. The former Klan dragon of North Carolina who was deposed deposed rather suddenly six years ago in a cornfield near Maxton, James (Catfish) Cole of Kinston, is active in Klan circles again. Cole complained bitterly about newspaper use of his nickname a few years ago when Kinston newsmen discovered discovered that he was known as "Catfish" when he was a taxicab driver in that city. He telephoned newspaper reporters reporters asking that they omit the nickname. Some may now respond spelling it "Katfish." In Greenville, a y o Camp Lejeune marine was walking down a street at o'clock in the morning with 50-pound field pack on his back. Police wondered if the marine, Richard W. Medlong Syracuse, N. Y., was lost. wasn't. Medlong explained that after after he finished a 10 mile training hike at Lejeune he decided to walk to Greenville to see his girl friend, East Carolina College coed Janice Graham of Greensboro. It took him 12 hours to walk from the Marine base to Greenville, but he figured long walk was worth it. one thing, he told police, might start a fad. However, Medlong's arrival in Greenville was rather at night. The police who found him walking rinwn a Greenville street gave him a ride for the last mile to Green park where he pitched a to spend the night -- deciding to wait until the next day see his girl. Miss Graham, incidentally, is a junior at ECC majoring in psychology.
