Klan Fighter On Campus
Pulitzer Winning Carter
Got Little Police Help
By John Jamison
He is a young bespectacled fel
low of slight build who somehow
doesn't look the part of a Pulitzer
Prize winner. And his face shows
a little embarrassment over the
Horace G. Carter, editor of the
Tabor City Tribune, recent winner
of the highest honor in journalism,
is on the cmapus this weekend
for the North Carolina Editorial
Writers' Conference. He got here
a little early and spent Friday
morning chatting with friends and
students in Bynum Hall.
Carter is very candid now in his
criticism of public officials and
others who failed to back him up
in his long crusade against the
Ku Klux Klan, just as candid as
he was in the crusade itself.
"I never felt that the local po
lice officers did anything at all to
halt the Klan's activities until the
FBI made the first arrests," the
32-year-old UNC graduate said.
He recalled one instance in
which he proposed to Tabor City
officials that an arbitrary drivers'
license check be pulled in the
town during one of the Klan's
automobile parades. The officials,
he said, refused to ask the State
Highway Patrol to take this action,
"or we would have at least known
the names of a few Klansmen a
whole year before we did."
Carter said his "crusade" began
back in 1951 when the South Caro
lina branch of the Klan moved
across the state line into Tabor
City one night to stage its first
scare parade there. ("About 30
odd cars drove through town and
headed for 'the bottom, a Negro
section. The lead car carried an
illuminated cross on the hood, .nd
all the cars had their dome lights
on, revealing four or five hooded
figures inside. In 'the bottom' four
or five shots were fired from the
"In the next issue of The Tri
bune I ran an editorial in 10
point bold face type right down
the middle of page one. I told mv
readers how I felt about the Ku
Kluxers, that no group had the
right to attempt rule by fear, and
that no group had the right to
say that one race is superior to
For a good many months follow
ing, The Tribune made an editorial
page out of page one, Carter said,
and the Klan's activities continued
at full speed. Carter received im
plied, but not actual, threats, tell
ing him he was a "low-grade mor
on and a Communist." Little Ku
Klux stickers were pasted all ovei
his car and his office door.

think, to put up a good deal of
resistance." (He kept firearms in
his home but never carried one
on his person.)
Probably as a result of Carter's
newspaper campaign, 19 Klansmen
are now serving prison sentences,
including Thomas L. Hamilton, the
self-made "Imperial Wizard" of
the KKK. Hamilton, an ex-grocer
and a 32nd degree Mason, is now
occupied on a South Carolina
chain gang near Myrtle Beach.

Carter says he's a shrewd busi
nessman and saw in the Klan a
good thing financially. He had re
cruited 30,000 members in South
Carolina at $10 a head. ("All they
got for the $10 was a bed sheet
and a hood.")
In an afternoon-long interview
with Carter before the trial, Ham
ilton maintained the Klan's inno
cence of the flogging charges, de
nying the KKK had taken part in
any of the 30 beating incidents
it had been accused of. But later

before the court. ("He is two-faced,"

Carter in the election expressed
doubt that he could beat a man
who had just won a Pulitzer Prize.
A friend, who has little faith in
the intelligence of the Tabor City
electorate, advised him to spread
the word that Carter had bought
of pullets. "If they hear he's been

in a gambling game they'll never

For having rendered constant
service, while upholding the Chris
tian outlook of the YWCA, the
Hospital Committee of the Y re
ceived the first Gay Currie Serv
ice Award recently at the instal-
ation program in Gerrard Hall.
The 53 Y Cabinet set up the
award to be a reminder that the
work of all committees is worthy
of mention and for a challenge to
future servers of the Y. The title
of the award went to Gay Currie,
executive director of the Y, who
after assisting the YW for five
years, leaves Carolina in June.
The Hospital Committee, under
the leadership of Rosemary Sco-
vil, helped at the Memorial Hos
pital throughout the year. Coeds
