New Ku Klux Klan Launched in Britain; Leader Stresses Anti-semitism

A second Ku Klux Klan organization has been launched in Britain looking for membership among unemployed Britons, it was learned here today.

The existence of a rival KKK group to one operated by Horace Sherman Miller of Waco, Texas, was revealed by the distribution of leaflets with a return address which was traced to a Maurice Woodford who revealed that he had put the return box number on his leaflets in the hopes of hearing from sympathizers. Mr. Miller has disowned his new rival.

Mr. Woodford told newsmen: “Wait till unemployment comes. That’s when our membership will grow. We are anti-Communist and anti-Jewish.” He revealed that “we have contacts with National Socialists, but as a Klan, we’re not political.”
