Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 11. 1965.

Ku Klux Klan on Campus?

Ku Klux Klan on Campus?

Salient Reporter

The Ku Klux Klan has made its appearance on the Victoria campus.

A Cyclostyled sheet was distributed at Forum recently announcing the formation of a Victoria University branch of the Klan. It stated that one of the main reasons for its formation was to counter Communist tendencies in the Ad Dextrum Club (formerly known, officially or otherwise, as the Right Wing Club, the Rightest Club, and the Federated Fascists).

The Klan apparently also plans to ship recalcitrant coloureds to redevelopment areas along the desert road.

There has been some uncertainty amongst students as to just who is behind the Ku Klux Klan. A popular theory is that the Klan has been formed by a group of left wingers solely as an instrument with which to satirise right wing extremists in the Ad Dextrum club.

Some students have gone so far as to suggest that even the Ad Dextrum club is a myth created by left wingers to ridicule the right wing with newspaper stories about right wing extremists at the university.

A Salient reporter managed to uncloak the Ku Klux Klan's Grand Imperial Wizard, but was sworn to secrecy on his identity. The Wizard explained that the Klan is, and always will be, a secret society. "In fact," he said, "it is so secret that even I don't know what it is doing."
