Pantagraph A-12 Bloomington-Normal, III. Wed., Oct. 26, 1977 KKK 'citizen watch' begins along border SAN DIEGO (AP)-A Ku Klux Klan group launched what it called a "citizens watch" along the 2,000-mile-long Mexican border Tuesday, looking for persons trying to illegally cross into the United States. The U.S. Border Patrol, other of ficials and Mexican-Americans denounced the action. David Duke of Metairie, La., national in uniform will closely watch Klansmen. When the Klan announced its plans last week, Herman Baca, spokesman for the Mexican-American community in San Diego, said 40 organizations would demonstrate against the Klan Saturday. Leonel Castillo, director of the U.S. Hopedale residents give $108 in UNICEF drive HOPEDALE (PNS)-Adults and youths of the community collected $108.20 for UNICEF Sunday, Dana Egli won a prize for the most frightening costume and Beth Haney had the most original costume. He said precautions were taken to avoid violence. No one recruited from Southern California was armed, he said, although "about a dozen cars are marked and most of the people will have Klan patches." Duke said Klansmen will refrain from any direct contact with aliens. If any are found, said Duke, "they're not going to talk to themror contact them. But we'll be using citizens band radios and from a contact point we'll tell U.S. immigration people." Allen Gerhardt, chief agent for the Border Patrol in the San Diego area, said, "We are not cooperating with the Klan," and he said U.S. border officers National Chambers of Commerce of Mexico and Mexican national leaders also condemned the plan. In Crystal City, Tex., the Mexican-American community set up its own patrol to watch for Klansmen but a spokesman said no Klansmen turneu" up. Mission Sunday planned at Cullom church ' CULLOM (PNS) Mission Sunday will be observed Sunday at St. John's Lutheran Church at the regular morning worship service. Pastor Harold Olson, who has worked at a Colombia, South America, mission, will be the speaker. Immigration and Naturalization Service, said any employes found encouraging Klansmen would be disciplined. Duke said he had met with "the Community Relations Department of the Justice Department" and other agencies, but Gerhardt said only the Border Patrol has authority to deal with aliens and "we cannot convey that authority to any other person or group ... We have had absolutely no contact with the Klan." Patrick Lucey, U.S. ambassador to Mexico, said last week that under no circumstances would the Klan be allowed to patrol the border. In Mexico City, the Confederation of California last week that 500 to 1,000 Klan members would fan out along the 2,000-mile border from Brownsville, Tex., to the Pacific Ocean. There was no immediate explanation why the number of actual participants was smaller. The Klan has said its aim is to report illegal aliens to the Border Patrol, and that Klan members will not try to make arrests. In a telephone interview Tuesday, Duke said Klansmen, "one, two and three to a car," would patrol primarily rural areas where illegal aliens traditionally cross the border. Much of the watch will be on land owned by KKK members, he said. mmmmm mmmwm Prices Good Thru Sat., Oct. 29, 1977 Quantity Rights Reserved HALLOWEEN COSTUMES!
