Masked Men Whip Georgia Man, Alleged
to Harbor White Women in His House

Dalton Ga., Dec. 16--A revival of the days of the KuKlux Klan took place here, when a band of masked men took John Watkins from his home to the center of the town, where he was severely whipped.  Watkins then was given three days to leave town.  The action is said to have followed Watkins' refusal to get rid of several alleged disorderly white women living in one of his house.
