Alabaman Renews Attacks On
Catholics And Defends
Aims of K. K. K.
Washington, Feb. 6.—A silent
senate listened today while Sena
tor Heflin, of Alabama, vowed that
he would carry to the country his
fight to prevent the flying of a
chaplain's flag above the Ameri
can emblem on battleships during
church services at sea.
His proposal to prevent the hoist
, ing of this flag, which Heflin de
scribed as “the Roman cross” above
the Stars and Stripes, was rejected
by the senate yesterday, 69 t$ 10
and the senate declared today he
would soon introduce a bill to carry
out its intent and demand hearings
,and senate act|on upon it.
The Alabaman defended the right
of the Ku Klux Klan to exist, de
scribing the aims of the organiza
. tion as “noble” and asserted that
1 the Klan did a good job in the last
campaign because “it helped to
turn the Raskobs out.”
Waves Flag.
Waving back and forth a tiny
American flag which contrasted
with the proportions of his huge
frame. Senator Heflin shouted that
l “public men are quaking in their
boots” for fear of the influence of
the Roman Catholic church. He
warned Democratic senators who
vo^ed against his proposal yester
day that they would have to face
the issue in their states.
“Those of you on this side of the
chamber who voted against flying
the American flag above the Roman
cross,” shaking his finger at the
Democratic side, “are going to meet
this issue in your states And I will
• see to it that you do,”
He recalled his fight upon Alfred
E. Smith last spring and asserted
that the Democratic party is going
to have a new leader.
“And he won’t come from New
4 York,” he continued, “and he won’t
be Alfred Emmanuel Smith, nor his
man Friday—Franklin Roosevelt.”
Heflin referred to the ten men
who voted for his amendment yes
terday as the “ten immortals who
like beacon lights stand out in the
history of our nation.”
The speech of the Alabaman was
received in silence and without re
