Charge Klan Swung Georgia to Mcadoo

Following the over-whelming victory of William G. McAdoo over Oscar Underwood in the Georgia, Presidential preferential primary Wednesday, Underwood managers today blamed their defeat on the Ku Klux Klan.

Pointing out an incident of his Georgia trip where McAdoo was quizzed from the audience on his stand on the Klan, they hold that his answer was such as to win approval of Klan officials. "The votes of the order in Georgia were sufficient to swing Georgia for McAdoo," the Underwood statement concludes.
