Executive Charges Ku Klux Klan
Conspired in Removal
Oklahoma City, Okla.,. Nov. 6-(Byl
A.P.)-Gov. J. C Walton took his cause
to the federal courts today in an ef-
fort to invoke government interven-1
tion in the series of tangled events
which has marked the political life of
Oklahoma for the last several months.
On the outcome of the action is
expected to depend the question of
whether 4he impeachment proceed-
ings against the executive will be dis-
posed of in the near future or wheth-
er they will await a final decision by
the United States supreme court. If
the latter condition develops, observ-
ers saw tonight many unexpected
complications in the situation that
would be unprecedented.s

States district at Lawton for a writ

Lack of Information Necessitates
Delay While Waiting for
Washington, Nov. 6.-(By A. P.)-
Availability of American helpfulness
in the European economic crisis ap-
parently depends upon detailed expla-
I nations of the restrictions on the pro-
posed inquiry into the reparations
tangle. Up to this time, it was learn-
ed authoritatively, the Washington
government has not been able to find
out exactly what the French premier
has in mind in proposing to confine
the inquiry to Germany's present ca-
pacity to make reparations payments.
Seek Explanation
Conversations between President'
Coolidge and Ambassador Jusserand
today and between the French ambas-
sador and Secretary Hughes yester-
day, turned almost wholly upon the
effort to determine the exact nature
of the French restrictions. As it has
been translated in London, the French
phrase reads "capacity to pay at pres-I
ent and for a limited future period."1
It was evident that the ambassadorl
had been unable to amplify it suffi- }
ciently and had cabled his government
for a detailed explanation for which
government officials are waiting with
deep interest.
In view of this situation, it was
stated strongly that the statement
that negotiations had met a deadlock
was wholly without foundation. The
administration, on the contrary, re-
gards the door still open to American
co-operation in the search. for a so-
lution for the reparation problem,
provided the Allies desire such aid.
After President Coolidge's conference
today with Ambassador Jusserand,}
which lasted nearly half 'an hour, a
White House spokesman urged that
America exercise patience.
Is Delicate Natter
It was pointed out that Europe's
present economic plight had a historic
background which cannot be reme-
died on 24 hours notice. This is rec-i
ognized in Washington and although
it is felt in administrative circles that
the economic situation ist growing
brightertday by day, there is every
reAson to avoid delay in getting the
experts to work if the powers can
reach agreement on this course.
There is-no disposition to withdraw
the offer of American co-operation+
while there is any reasonable chance
that the Allies can find a way to avail
themselves of it.

Senator Also Discusses Present
Problems In Railroad
Speaking on the subject "Present
European Conditions,". Senator James
E. Couzens of the Michigan district
addressed an overflowing crowd yes-
terday noon at the luncheon of the
Chamber of Commerce club. Over 200
reservations for seats at the luncheon
were made in advance.
Discusses Conditions
Senator Couzens, during the course
of his speech, made public his conclu-
sions of European conditions 'which
he formed on his visit there last sum-
mer. On his trip he was able to make
many observations that would have
been impossible through the medium
of newspapers, he stated, and conse-
quently was able to place the :facts
viewed from the citizens' standpoint
at the command of his hearers.
The existing issues over which the
United States should concern itself in
European affairs has been used by
many Congressmen as a means of ag-
grandizement and political issues, the
Senator said, and the public should
ee the facts in their own light.
Participation by the United States
in European affairs has caused great
damage, the Senator agreed, although
the blame can be laid to no individual.
But the victories the Allies earned in
the war are useless, he continued,
until the economic results can be de-
Although Germany signed a state-
inment assuming the blame for the war,
and a reparations commission estab-
lished a sum of $33,000,000,000 as Ger-
many's debt to the Allies, less than
16 per cent of this has been paid. Of
ihis reparations debt, France i to re-
ceive 52 per cent, and the Senator is
in sympathy with the 'French in oc-
eupying the Ruhr to obtain a settle-
meInt. The United States, he added,
has consistently refused to allow the
Allied debt of $6,000,00000 to be
(drawr Into the Euiopean settlement
in any way.
flays Exchange
All through his trip Senator Couz-
ens saw conditions which he had not
been able to grasp through reports.
In Germany, new factories, new
houses, and a general prosperity
greeted him on every hand. This was
in direct contrast with the many
emaciated women and children he ob-
served, despite the excellent crops of
the German farmers. The cause is the
instability of the exchange system,
which is disrupting the internal com-
mnerce he said. Senator Couzens lays
the fluctuation of the German ex-
change system to the unfair attempt
of the influential German firms to
liquidate their reparations burden.
An impasse exists in the settlement
question, he stated. Until 'Germany
can take in more money by' their ex-
ports exceeding imports, the debt can-
not be lessened. This profitable com-
merce depends upon a friendly ar-
rangement. The IJUnited States is the
country best qualified to act as arbit-
rator in reinstating Germany, and the
Senator advises the intermediation of
the IUnited States, not in alliances or a
league, bt, alone to adjust the present
Not only will the United States be
aiding a good cause in such media-
liom ' lideclared, but economic beune-
fits from stabilization will result

Wants Private Ownership
Senator Couzens also devoted part
of his sneech to a discussion of the
transportation problem. Although the
railroads of the country have been
ivmg good service during the past
six nmonths, yet freight rates are doU-
ble what they should be, he stated.
Private ownership of railroads is pre-
ferable, but unless the railroads meet
tie demands of the public, the Senator
advocated measures by the govern-
maent to enforce'them to do so, or else
take over the r'ads entirely.
President Marion L. Burton, in in-
trod ucing Senator"Couzens, paid trib-
ute to'hiim as a man who had gener-'
Ously contributed of his wealth to up-
build the University.' Senator Couz-
ens is the donor of the 'new Nurses'
Home, ground for which will prob-
ably be broken within a month, the
President added.
