Arthur C. Baldwin, of the ObMtniit Street Baptist Church be ii,. that no order should be nllewed te xUt which tends te create racial tad religious hatreds. "I have positively no urc for the Kn Klux Klnn," said Dr. Baldwin. "Hellgieus Intolerance, te me, is the worst form of heresy. There Is no room for an order wiucn creates reiiRieus prejudice.

Klan Coin Net Wanted "I would net, knowingly, nllew n member of the Klnn te enter my church, and I would net accept money offered my church by them." That the Klnnsmen might profit mere ty listening te religious preaching Is the view ndvnnced by Bishop Nwly, ef the Methodist l.plscepal Church. The Kpv. Edwin Hejl Pclk. pastor of St. Mnthcw'n Lutheran Church, snld : "The tneniberfl of the Ku Klux Klnn are obnexints, un-American nnd un CbrWian men te nsstime the nttituda they de in this ngp of enlightenment.

MncCnllum. paMer of the Kirfit I'resbvtprlnn Church, at Thirty-ninth nnd Walnut streets. "Tlie Ku Klux Klnn 1h net se Im portant In Itself, but in the fnct thnt it Is n symptom of the lawlessness which rwiiled In the region where It wns met actively ergnnlred," he said. "The order Itself was a result of the reaction following the war. It Is nar row -minded, ignorant nnd cowardly, hut tint does net Justify our becom ing lnsteiic.il about it.

"In the end the courts of justice are nerer furthered by injustice. "The seed of death is In the Klan's doctrines, and it been will be a spent veire.' ' The Rev. Luther De Tee. Trinity Lutheran Church, Gcrmnntewn nvenue ind Queen Inne, said : "I leek upon this Ku Klux Klan bb n national nuisance. I am net able te determine that It hns any useful purpose, nnd 'ten if there wns geed In it, It would j a very wrong thing In Amerlcnn life beenuse of Its professed secret netheds. It Is inconsistent with all the fair practice of this Natien. "It Is absolutely beyond my compre hension that a minister of any denoml deneml denoml nitlen could nllew a member of that organization te stand in his pulpit, aucb. less while drcBcd in the robes f the orgmlatlen. I should net allow one te ceme Inte the church. Their organization hns no place In Chris tianity, nnd it Eeems incencelvnble thnt people interested In Christianity could ke such a part. Their organization nas never been recognized by this church, nnd no one with us is in yapathy with It." United In Opposition Dr. I)c Tee wns asked 'what he would Je If a member of the Klan npprenchpd Jilm quietly and with n statement thnt jee work he was doing wns fine, at t'njpted te present him with a sum of money or ether gift for the church.

The re-enforced Laber delegation in the Commens is showing n determination te make un employment the paramount domestic issue. The Government, having failed te redeem its campaign premises of "special steps te deal with unemploy ment" plans the prorogation of Parlia ment tomorrow for eight weeks.
