The Albany official stated yesterday that Mr. Sherman could not conduct a Klan prosecution. unless ordered to do so by Govgrpor Smith.

It ras ascertained that the Governor had not issued such order. The official went on to explain that the Governor issues such an order only when the county prosecutor has been delinquent or is too busily engaged in other prosecution work.
