Kluxers Order Family to Move. Smash Window and Attempt to Fire Home, It is Charged. Mother and Children alone, flee in fright. Renewal of activities by the Ku Klux Klan in Macomb County was reported last night when the family of Charles Frohm on the Telegraph road, was told to moved within three weeks or suffer the consequences. The latter were not long in coming for they seemed to accompany the warning given by a hooded figure who appeared at the farmhouse, smashed a window and then attempted to fire the building with a large dispan filled with burning oil soaked rags. When Deputy Sheriff Percy Moore responded to a call last night and arrived at the scene, the alledged Klan members had dispersed and nothing remained to tell of their visit but the broken window and the dish pan and its contents of oil soaked and charred rags. Mrs. Frohm and children were badly frightened but declared they had been told to move because they represented too large a family and further that they were not desired in the neighborhood. Frohm himself was not present. It is said that last night's warning is the second that has been given the Frohms by the Klan.
