Correspondence

Letter from the president, secretary, and chairman of the executive board of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to Kansas Governor Ben S. Paulen. The NAACP thanked Governor Paulen for not passing Senate Bill 269 known as the Ku Klux Klan bill. If passed, this bill would have allowed organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan to operate in Kansas without taking out a charter. Governor Paulen disagreed with the bill and discouraged its passing. The bill failed in the Kansas House of Representatives with 65 nays and 57 yeas.
