    The inefficient Maycomb fire truck was pushed from

    town by a group of men . There was another incident

    which happened before the burning of the whole

    house. Mr. Avery, one of the Maycomb residents, was

    upstairs in the house, throwing a mattress and other

    furniture out of the window onto the street. Suddenly,

    the stairs caught fire and he began climbing out of the

    window. Haplessly, he was stuck there which

    dumbfounded many.

  • A sudden breakout of fire at Maudie Atkinson's house causes pandemonium between Maycomb Residents as they scurry to help. CONTINUED..

    Soon later, Miss Maudie's

    house collapsed with a gush of fire.

    It was already morning when everyone

    began to leave.

    When she was in a better mood,

    Miss Maudie Atkinson said,

    'Only thing I worried about last I ALWAYS WANTED A SMALLER HOUSE.

    night was all the danger and commotion GIVES ME MORE YARD.

    it caused. JUST THINK , I'LL HAVE MORE ROOM

    This whole neighbourhood could FOR MY AZALEAS NOW!

    have gotten up. MISS MAUDIE ATKINSONS,

    Mr Avery'll be in bed for a week a perserverant gardener despite the

    He's right stove up. loss of her home.

    He's too old to do things like

    that and I told him so.'

    Brave-hearted and perseverant

    Miss Maudie has more

    care and concern to the society

    rather than herself.

  • The Klan UnmaskedThe Klan UnmaskedThe Klan UnmaskedThe Klan Unmasked

    Last week , I published an article on this

    newpaper headlined

    ' Why I believe in Segregation'

    This sparked alot of support from the well known

    Ku Klux Klan in Alabama.

    I was contacted by the group last Wednesday when

    they asked me to put an advertisment on the

    Maycomb Weekly for their upcoming ralley.

    This was my first time encountering the group and

    I was keen to learn more about them.

    It may not come as a shock to you that the KKK has killed over 6000

    Negroes since the founding of the group in the late 1860's. The group began as a social

    club of young men in Tennessee. These men had all one thing in common , the hatred of

    'niggers'

    They quickly adopted a ghostly white uniform ( shown below ) and rituals that frighten

    superstitious Negroes till this day. The Klansmen lost little time recruiting members with

    55,000 members throughout the country, although most are based in the south.

    The Klans aims are to have a supreme white race or

    otherwise known as 'The Perfect American Race' .

    Their hatred towards Negroes is obvious however

    they are also against Catholics as they believe they

    are not 100% loyal to America considering they are

    also loyal to the Pope.

    The Klan today take part in daily lynching and terrorising of Negroes , saying their job

    is to 'Clean Up America'.

  • The reputation of the Ku Klux Klan has been somewhat misunderstood in the latest

    few years according to the group.

    The group describes themselves as 'an organisation that creates a purer world,

    and we do that by killing all non-whites in the world, including blacks. We also

    kill the Catholics and terrorise and evacuate people from houses by burning

    crosses'.

    I Hope to see you all at the next ralley.
