THE KLAN KREED 

IN THE BEGINING GOD; ETERNAL-. INFINITE CREATOR AND HIS SON, JESUS 
CHRIST, OUR CRITERION OP CUArtACTER, OUR SAVIOUR. IN THIS WE PLACE ALL 
OUR FAITH. 

We know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society but 
the people themselves, and if any think them not enlightened emugh 
to exercise their control with wholesome discretion, we helieve the 
remedy is not to take the powers from them, but to inform discretion 
by education. 

We believe there can be no compromise on the matter of the segre- 
gation of the Races. 

We believe that for any single American citizen to survive the 
final battle that will be paged by the International Communist Cons- 
piracy, America and its Christian Constitutional form of government 
must survive. 

We believe with unqualified faith The Holy Bible, Romans 12:1, 
"I beseech you therefore brethern, by the mercies of God, that ye 
present your bodies a living secraf ice, Holy, eccep table unto God, 
which is your reasonable service I' 

We believe that the Holy Bible and The Constitution Of The United 
States of America are the Greatest Safeguards of true liberty, Justice 
and the Dignity of man ever devised. 

§ 

We believe that failure to know the enemy, failure to understand 
him on all fronts, failure to prepare completely to battle him to flu 
ultimate end in defense of this great nation will give him aio ana a 
comfort. To give the enemy aid and comfort according to the Constitu- 
tion Of The United States Of America is Treason. 

We believe that our future will not redeem our past, i/ejrill only 

drift f; 

we come 

no halfw;„ 

don: it must be all or nothing. We now rest our case to your 

Our accusers are persons, not America, our objective is freedom, not 

peace. 




We believe that the crowning glory of a Klansman is to serve- 
NON SILBA SED AN THAR -HOT FOR SELF, BUT FOR OTfERo.

the pomt of the sword, he will plaee the Bible, opened to the 12th 
cnapter or Romans, on and near the corner of the Sacred Alter to his 
left and next to hia, and the vessel of fluid on and near the corner 
oi Sacred alter to his right and opposite side from him, and takes 
position Number 2 and faees the Sacred Alter, 

m. A 3x he ^ edv ! fl the ? acr ? d Alter the HiS*it Hawk (in his absence, the 
Kladd) will advance to the Sacred Alter with the Firey Cross and place 
it at and against 'center of Sacred Alter on side toward the E.C. 's 
station, light it, and take position Number 4 facing the Sacred Alter. 

The Klokard from his position* carefully surveys the Sacred Alter 
to make sure it 'is properly prepared, corrects any imperfections in 
its preparation, if any; from his position he faces the E.C, (the 
other three Terrors will do likewise) and address the E.C. as followw* 

SxS k ^T^;"^^2H R T EXCELLENCEY ' THE SACR ED ALTAR OP THE KLAN IS PREPARED. 
THE PIREY CROSS ILLUMINATES THE KLAVERN." ******

When he says this he will arise and and advance to and occupy the 
position Number 2 occupied by The Kludd* as he approaches the Kludd 
that Terror will advance to the Sacred Alter and take position-near 
the point of the sword. All Klansmen will form on the quadrate, form- 
ing straight lines between these four positions; these four positions 
occupied by Terrors, form the corners of the quadrate. The Terrors, 
in taking these positions should step out far enough to accomodate the 
members between them, about an equal number on each side of the quad- 
rate. The distance between the Klansmen in this quadrate should "be 
about three feet. If there be more than enough to form one line, the 
others will form back of the first line and so on untill all are in 
position. Great care must be exercised to form the quadrate correctly 
and symmetrically with the Sacred Alter in as near the exact center as 
possible. When the formation is complete all will join in the singing 
of the following Klode: 

My Country, 'tis of Thee, Sweet Land Of Liberty, Of The I Sing, 
Land where my fathers died, Land of the Pilgrims Pride, 
From Every Mountian Side, Let Freedom Ring, 

' • 4 

Our Fathers God: to Thee, Attthor of Liberty, To Thee We Singi 
Long may $ur land be bright, With Freedoms Holy Light, 
Protect us by thy might, Great Sod Our King • 

After singing. The Kludd at the Sacred Alter le.*ds in the following 
prayer. (All must stand with bowed Heads.) 



PAGE 8 

"OH GOD OUR HEAVENLY GUIDE, AS FINITE CREATURES OP TIME AND AS

"AMBUS "All Klar.smcn say Amen." 

After the prayer all, facing the Sacred Alter, will give together 
TSOG and holding same will say, "FOP, MY COUNTRY, THE KLAN, MY FELLOW 
KLANSMEN AKD MY HOttfS." Then all will give the N.H. to the flag. The 
E.G. theft immediately returns to his station; as he vacates position 
Number 2, the Kludd will advance from the Sacred Alter and occupy the 
position Number 2. As the E.C. steps into his station, faces the ass- 
embly, and gives one rap with his gavel, at this each Klan3man will 
face him and give TSOTF-C, then TSOC-1, then raise TSOS, and then 
TSOK-cj as he responds with TSOK-C they will recover. He holds TSOK-C 
and says: 

"MY TERRORS AND KLANSMEN J IN THE SACRED CAUSE WE HAVE ENTERED, 
BE THOU FAITHFUL UNTO DEATH; BE PATRIOTIC TOWARD OUR COUNTRY; BE 
KLANISH TOWARD KLANSMEN J BE DEVOTED TO OUR GREAT FRATERNITY, 

He then recovers TSOK-C, and says: "MY TERRORS AND KLANSMEN: 
WHAT IS THE S70P.N DUTY OF A KLANSI1AN IN KLOIIKLAVE ASS3MELED?" 

All answer together "TO MA EI TAIN PEACE AMD HARMONY IN ALL THE 

DELIBERATIONS OF THE KLAN IN KLONKLAVE ASSEMBLED, AND TAKE HEED TO 
INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN." 

The E.C. will then give two raps with his gavel. All will be seat-

Then only the Kladd advances and through the wicket whispers the 
countersign to the Klexter. 

KLEXTER (opening the wicket) "WITH HEART AND SOUL I THE KLEXTER

NOBLE ACHEIVEMENT IN YOUR EARTHLY CAREER. BE FAITHFUL AND TRUE UNTO

The Kladd with his party will pass the outer door and stop. He 
will then give ALLW, and the Klarogo upon hearing the LLW will then 
announce s 

"YOUR EXCELLENCY AND KLANSMEN ASSEMBLED: I HEAR THE SIGNAL OF THE 
KLADD OF THE KLAN ON HIS WAY WITH A PARTY." 

E.G. "MY TERRORS AND KLANSMEN, ONE AND ALL: MAKE READY!" 

Each klansmsn will put on his hood, both aprons down, all robes 
completely buttoned. All lights must be turned dom so as to make 
the Klavern almost dark. All must remain still and quiet. Only the 



PAGE 16 

officers who must read will use a light and then only a small light* 
When all are ready, the Klaroge will answer the Kladd with ALLV/» 
and begin to OTDS. 

KLADD "SIRS, THE PORTAL TO THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE IS BEING OPENED 

FOR YOU. YOUR RIGHTEOUS PRAYER IS BEING ANSWERED FOR YOU AND YOU HAVE 
POUND FAVOR IN TIE SIGHT OF THE EXALTED CYCLOPS AND HIS KLAHSMEN

As the Kladd approaches the inner door with his party, the Klar- 
ogo will stop them by feeing them with TSOF-Ci He will then recover 
TSOF-C, fsce inward and stand erect and reedy. (The Klokard or his 
assistant before this has stationed himself just insir.e the door and 
not seen by the party but to be heard by them will say: 

"God give us men! The Invisible Empire demands strong, 

Hinds, great hearts, true faith and ready'hands, 

Men whom the lust of office does not kill, 

Men whom the lust of office cannot buy, 

Men who possess an'opinion and a will, 

Men who have Honor, and men who will 'not Lie, 

Men who can stand before a demagogue, 

And dam his treacherous flatteries without winking, 

Tall men, sun crowned, who live above the fog, 

In public duty and private thinking, 

For while the rabble, with their thumb worn creeds, 

Their large professions and little deeds, 

Mingle in selfish strife, LoJ Freedom weeps, 

Men who serve not for selfish booty. 

But real men, oouregeous, who flinch not at duly, ' 

Men of dependable character, Slen of sterling worth, 

Then wrongs will be redressed, and right will rule the earth, 

god give us men:::. 1 

KLAROGO "WILL EACH OF YOU AS KLANSUEN IN YOUR DAILY LIFE ALWAYS 

EARNESTLY ENDEAVOR TO BE AH ANSWER TO THIS PRAYER ?" 

He then faces the E.C. and says: 

"YOUR EXCELLENCY AND FELLOW KLANSMBN: JUST SUCH MEN ARE STAND- 
ING IN THE PORTAL OF THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE, DESIRING TKE LOFTY HONOR 
OF CITIZENSHIP THEREIN, READY AND WILLING TO FACE EVJM DUTY ON HIM 
THAT MAY BE IMPOSED. " 

E.C. "FAITHFUL KLAROGO AND KLANSMEN, LET THEM ENTER THE KLAVSRN

IF ANY ONE OF T3SM SHOULD FLINCH, SHOP UP *S A COWARD, OR AS A SCA- 
LAWAG NOW OR AT ANY TIME IN THE FUTURE, IT WILL BE YOUR DUTY TO THEN 
EJECT HIM OR THEM FROM THE PORTAL OF THE INVISIBLE El-PIRE AHD DO 30 
WITHOUT DELAY: BE THOU NOT RECREANT TO DUTYS DEMANDS." 

While the above prayer is being said the Night Hank takes the 
firey cross from the Altar, lights it and takes a position in front ' 
of and about four feet from the Klaliffs station, facing the Klarogo, 
holding the firey cross above his head. 

The Klarogo steps aside and will say to the Kladd, "PASS." 



PAGE 17 

When the Kladd crosses the threshold of the Klavern he will stop 
and give TSOG, All Klansmen except the officers, will arise, face 
the Kladd, and give TSOG, face the altar and remain standing with 
TSOC-L. The Kladd will then proceed with his party toward the Night 
Huwk. As the Klc?dd approaches the Night Hawk and gets about six feet 
from him the Night Hawk will about face and march in front of him on 
the joumeyuntill he is halted by-ALLW from the 3.0« When he hears 
the signal he will stop his party, answer the signal with £Hff&_™* 
face his party toward the Sacred Altar. When this is done the Wight 
Hawk with the firey cro3s takes a position in front of and about 
six feet from the party, facing the party with the cross uplifted. 
He will remain here untill he hears the second LLW from the E.G. Then 
he will resome his position in front of the Kladd and move on with 
the party. When the Kladd hears the same LLW he will face his party 
as they were, answer the LLW with ALLW and follow the Night Hawk. 

When the signal of ALLW Of the B.C. is first given, all klansmen 
except the station officers, Klarogo and Klexter, will form from the 
seats, march around the hall in single file, the Klokard leading to 
his right, pass in front'along the line of the party, between the 
party and the Night Hawk, 'with each Klansman looking the party rignt 
in the eyes but moving on, and after passing the party the ELokard 
will form the klansmen in a'double line with open ranks about six feet 
apart and facing each other, holding TSOC-L, and standing steady on 
the opposite side of the Klavern; The E.C. then give3 the second LLw 
and the Night Hawk will lead the Kladd and his party on their Journey 
by way of the E.C. station and through the formation of the Klansmen. 
All this must be done with quiet and dignity. 

After 'the Klsdd and his party hrve passed the formation of the 
klansmen, all klansmen will without signal return to their seats but 
will remain standing untill the Kladd presents his party to the E.C. 
and then they will quietly sit down. 

As the Kladd approaches the station of the Klaliff after he has 
passed the formation of the Klansmen, the Klaliff will arise and 
GTSOG and halt him with ALLW. On hearing it the Kladd and Night Hawk 
stops and the Kladd answers with same. 

Klaliff "WHO ARE YOU THAT WALK IN THE KLAVERN AT THIS HOUR?"

ON ORDERS OF HIS EXCELLENCY, I, THE KLADD OF THE KLAN, A?J THEIR GUIDE 
TO THE SACRED ALTAR." 

KLALIFF "PASS." 

The journey from the entrance to the E.C. station must be made 
in a circle around the Klavern. 

The Night Hawk will move on, followed by the Kladd and his party 
and will continue untill he arrives at the station of the E.C. where 
he shall stdp and line his company up in a straight linein front of 
the station. The Night Havk stops but does not change his position. 
The Kladd steps to the rear of the party and will say;

"IT IS INDEED REFRESHING TO WEi? F\CE TO PACE WITH MEN, WnO BY

AND HUMANITY, " 

"THE LUSTR3 OP THE HOLY LIGHT OF CHIVALRY HAS LOST ITS FORMER 
GLORY AND IS SADLY DBIMBD BY THE CLiOKEiG DUST OF SELFISH SOItDID GAIN. 
PASS OH." 

The E.G. will resume his seat, and the Kladd will face his party 
toward the night hawk and advance behind the night hawk untill he 
hears the signal of ALLW from the Klokard. On hearing the signal 
from the Klokard the night hav.k stops and stands steady, the Kladd 
vrill also stop his party immediately in front of the Klokards station 
and face them to the Klokards station and answer the signal by the 
same. Cn hearing the ens:;er the Klokard will arise, address the party 
as follows:

SPIRITUAL DEVOLOPMENT. PASS ON." 

The Klaliff will resume his seat, and the Kladd rill face his 
party as before and" advance behind the Night Hawk untill he hears the 
ALLW from the Kludd. On hearing this the Night Hawk stops and star.ds 
steady; 'the Kladd will al30 stop his party in front of the Kludds 
station, facing them to the Kludd, then giving ALLW. Upon hearing 
this the Kludd will arise and address the party as follows: 



PAGE 19 

"MEN SPEAK OP LOVE AND LIVE IN HATE, 

MEN TALK OP FAITH AND TRUST PATE, 

OH, MIGHT MEN DO THE THINGS THEY TEACH, 

OH, MIGHT MEN LIVE THE LIPE THEY PREACH,

AND THE CLANGOR OP GRIM SELFISHNESS,

LOVE WOULD TREAD OUT THE BALEFUL FIRE OP ANGER, 

AND IN ITS ASHES PLANT THE LILY OP PEACE, PASS ON'.' 

The Kliidd will resume his seat and the Kladd will face his party 
as before, advancing behind the Night Hawk untill he hears the signal 
of the E.C, who will give ALLW. Then* the Night Hawk stops r*nd goes 
to take position at tko Sacred Altar, The Kl^dd will stop his party 
in front of the E.C. station and face them toward it. He will then 
give ALLW. Then the E.C, will arise and sayi 

"SIRS, WE CONGRATULATE YOU ON YOUR MANLY DECISION TO F07.SAKE THE 
WORLD OP SELFISH AND FRATERNAL ALEDIATI01I AND EMIGRATE TO THE BOUNDS 
OF THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE AND BECOME LOYAL CITIZENS OP THE S;JIE. Tr-S 
PRIME PURPOSE OP THIS GREAT ORDER IS TO DEVELOP CHARACTER, PRACTICE 
KLANISHNE5S, TO PROTECT THE HOME OP YOURS, THE CHASITY OF WOMANHOOD, 
AND TO EXEMPLIFY A PURE PATRIOTISM TOWARDS OUR GR£AT COUNTRY." 

"YOU AS CITIZENS OF THE EMPIRE MUST BE ACTIVELY PATRIOTIC TOWARDS 
OUR COUNTRY AND CONSTANTLY KLANISH TOWARDS KLANSMEN, SOCIALLY, 
PHYSICALLY, MORALLY AND VOCATIONALLY; KILL YOU ASSUME THIS BINDING

"YOU MUST UNFLINCHINGLY CONFORM TO OUR USAGES, REQUIREMENTS,

"FAITHFUL KLOKARD, YOU WILL DIRECT THE I7AY FOR THESE ALIENS TO

IN ORDER THAT THEY MIGHT MAKE FURTHER PROGRESS TOV/ARD ATTAINING THE 
CITIZENSHIP IN THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE, THE WHITE KNIGHTS OP THE KU 
KLUX KLAN, REALM OF MISSISSIPPI." 

The Kladd will "conduct the party to the Sacred altar by way of the 
Klokards Station. When he has arrived within about six feet of the 
Klokards Station he will turn square to his left and continue in a 



PAGE 20 

straight direction untill he reaches a point of fJ^jL!**-*!?* %&* 

Sacred Altar toward the station of the E.C. lie will then ™lf? * q „?" + 
to his right and continue untill he has passe* the Saorea Alter mot 
four feet; he ffill then turn square to hJs left and continue wjtixx 
he passes the Sacred Alter about six feet; then he will vasn square 
to his left and bring his party into a sort of hollow square around 
the Secred Altar. If he has few candidates he may forma Btraignj 
line facing them to the Spcred Altar on the Klallf* S? - C *^1. 1 °?„"?J 
the B.C. station and finish forming the hollow square with i£iana»en. 

The night Hawk will take his pl-ce with the ?irey Cross held aloft 
Just from the corner of the Sacred Altar to the right oftne B.C. 
Be will stand within the ciuadrste. The Eire;.' Cross is held aio.t in 
and during the administering of the oaths a-id the dedicatory ceremony. 

The first paragraph above gives a general idea regarding the real 
journey of the candidates to the Srcree Altar as to turns, angles 
and distances. In the ceremony as in the journey the size of the 
group and the good judgment of the Kladfi will get the best results 
in forming the ceremonial acts. 

The Kladd should study his part well. The floor work is very, very 
important and impressive. Ee should exercise good mannerisms and a 
military style in his work. 

Y/hen the Klokard hrs perfected the quadrate around the Altar, he 
will advance to a point midviay between the Altar and the station of 
the E.C., salute and clearly say; 

" YOUR EfcCELLElICY, THE ALIENS HT OUR MIDST FItOM TH3 WORLD 0? TIE

Then the Kladd will about face and advance to his position opposite 
of the center and to the rear of the line of candidates toward the 
station of the Klaliff, and av/ait orders. 

The Klokard with his assistants, the Klaliff and the Kludd will, 

with steady pace, form acrosss the open side of the hollow square, 

so as to evenly comolete the square, this being done the Klokard or 
his assistants will then administer the Oath.

icated to the holy service op our country, the klan, each other, our 
homes and humanity." 

e.g. "faithful klokard, you and your assistants have preformed 

your duty well and now you may rest. stand ready should some other 
duty arise." 

The KloKard resumes his place in the quadrate formation between his 
assistants. The E.C. will then proceed to the Sacred Altar to preform 
the following dedication ceremony. 

DEDICATION 

E.C. "SIRS, HAVE EACH OF YOU ASSUMED WITHOUT MENTAL RESERVATION

"MORTAL MAN CANNOT ASSUME A MORE BINDING OATIIx CHARACTER AND A

KEEP IT MEANS TO YOU HONOR, HAPPINESS AND LIFE: BUT, TO VIOLATE IT 
MEANS DEATH, DISHONOR AND DISGRACE. HAY HONOR, HAPPINESS AND LIFE 
BE YOURS." 

Then the E.C. holds up the vessel containing the dedication fluid 
and addresses the candidates as follows: 

"WITH THIS TRANSPARENT, LIFE GIVING, POWERFUL GOD GIVEN FLUID, 
MORE PRECIOUS AND FAR MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN ALL THE SACRSD OILS OF 
THE AINCENTS, I SET YOU APART FROM THE MEN OF YOUR DAILY ASSOCIATION

"-I DEDICATE YOU IN 30DY, IN MIND, HI SPIRIT AND IN LIFE, TO THE

"IN MIND," Then with a few drops on his hands tosses it upwards and 
says "TN SPIRIT',' Then moves his hand in a oircular motion around the 
candidates head and will say "AI'D IN LIFE." 

"THUS DEDICATED BY US, NOW CONSECRATE YOURSELVES TO THE SACRED 
CAUSE YOU HAVE ENTERED," 

"MY TERRORS AND KLANSHEN, LET US PRAY." 

THE DEDICATORY PRAYER 

* 

All except those officiating at the Altar must kneel, with the 
E.C. steeping back to the rear and left of the Kludd; the Night Hawk 
remains still; the Kludd will move close to the Sacred Altar on the 
side of the E.C. station and will offer the following Prayer. 

"OUR HEAVENLY FATHER, WE BESEECH THEE THAT AN OVERWHELMING 
SENSE OF DEDICATION WILL EMBRACE THESE MEN KNEELING BEFORE 2in,Z» LOOK

nirTFT IN YOUR OATH- I, ON BEHALF OP OUR EMPBROR AND ALL KLANSMEN

Then the E.C. will raise the front of his hood and all klansmen 
will do likewise as a token of welcome and he will greet each of the 
candidates with TOOK, then returns to his position and says: 

"BY AUTHORITY VESTED IN HE BY OUR EMPEROR, I NOW DECLARE AND 
PROCLAIM YOU AS CITIZENS OP THE INVISIBLE EMPIRE, THE WHITE KNIGHTS

This done the E.C. returns to his station and the candidate is 
greeted under the Firey Cross by each Klansman, by TOOK. This being 
done the E.C* will Say; 

"THE KLADD OP THE KLAN." 

KLADD "THE KLADD YOUR EXCELLENCY." 

E.G. "YOU WILL ESCORT THESE KLANSMEN AT THE ALTAR TO THE KLOKARD 

WHO WILL SEE THAT THEY GBT THE SIGNS, HAYS, WOItDS, GRIPS AND V/AYS

KLADD "I HAVE YOUR ORDERS." 

The Klokard may give the instructions himself or appbint a party 
to retire to the Outer Den to instruct the new Klansmen. 

THE WAY OF THE KLAVSRIT

to person. Below is listed the overall way to securly operate the 
klavern. 

1 The Password is set by the Klexter and Klarogo or their duly 

appointed substitutes. It is changed frequently. The Klexter will 
give the password when the Klansmen are arriving and he has ascer- 
tained that all are safe to let pass after having recognised them 
by the signs, Ways, words and grLps. The Klarogo will then collect 
the password from the arriving Klansmen as they enter the Klavern. 

2- xhe duly authorized officers of the Klan Will instruct the duly 

elected officers of the Klavern as to the ways, words, sighs and 
grips. 

5" No one is allowed in the Klavern unless he is able to give the 

necessary signs, ways, words and grips to the Klexter or in some 
cases be vouched for by a Klansmen so recognized. 

4 "~~~Jf the signs, ways, words and grips are ever'changed the Klan 
will be so instructed by the responsible Officers.
