Jewish Daily Bulletin)

A demand for a vigorous investigation into the activities of the Ku Kluv Klan will be made in Congress in connection with the facts brought out before the Senate Investigating Committee in Indiana and Missouri.

It was stated that the evidence heard by Senator Reed and his committee affords the basis for an effort to ascertain just what Klan lobbyists have been doing. Resolutions asking for a sweeping investigation will be introduced as soon as Congress convenes in December.

The revelations before the Reed Committee are sufficient basis for a demand for an inquiry, it was stated.
