'A New Breed' Attracts Attention WASHINGTON (AP) - The Ku Klux Klan is growing after a decade of decline as it switches from heated, anti- black rhetoric to slick public relations, says the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. "For the first time since the late 1960s, there has been an increase in Klan membership and visibility," said Irwin J. Suall, director of Jewish organization's domestic fact- finding unit. The membership of three major KKK factions has risen about 20 percent in two years and now totals about 8,000, compared to 6,500 klansmen in 1975, Suall said in an interview. The ADL offices around the country monitor the activities of the Klan and other groups considered anti-Jewish and estimate the number of members and supporters, Suall said. Suall attributed the membership increase to several factors, including the rise of David Duke as a leader of one Klan faction. "Duke is extraordinarily clever in manipulating the today In Garden City media," Suall said. "He tones down his views for public consumption, and he is beinggiven platforms all over the United States. "The impression has been spread around that there's been a national resurgence in the Klan and that it is now respectable to be a member of the Klan." Duke, a 27-year-old college graduate and imperial wizard of the Louisiana-based Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, has attracted national media attention as "a new breed" of klansman. However, Suall said Duke's organization, like other KKK groups, continues to be militantly anti-black and anti- Jewish. Suall said another factor contributing to the growth is Klan's exploitation of America's current race-related issues, such as busing, crime, unemployment and affirmative action. However, Suall said the Klan's current strength is slight compared to the height Shelton's organization must of the civil rights movement in now compete with Duke's the mid-1960s, when the ADL group and the Indiana-based estimated about 40,000 active Confederation of Independenl klansmen. Orders of the Invisible The ADL official said the Empire, Knights of the Ku KKK fell into decline largely Klux Klan. because it failed to in its attempt to defend segregation in the South. Internal bickering also took its loll, Suall said, as splinter groups broke away from the Alabama-based United Klans of America, headed by Robert Shelton. The ADL estimates that the United Klans of America remains the largest group with 3,-000 to 4,000 members. The confederation has 2,000 to 3,000 members and Duke's faction has about 1,000 members, Suall said. Suall added that Klan sympathizers now total about 40,000 and that the movement has made progress in branching out from its southern base, showing growth on the Eastern Seaboard and in border states. States where the Klan has increased membership include New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Kentucky, Florida, South Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, Texas and California, Suall said.
