Identification on accompanying material (typed): Santa Klaus, successfully infiltrated by the Klan, stands tolling his bell while the grand dragon astride his shoulder spews his venom halitosisly over the scene. Santa Klaws Kharacteristically takes a negative stand, hence the positioning of his feet. The child in Klan attire has been duly initiated, withess the bandages on her feet. In Santa's bag are the treats one usually anticipates from any such klandestine Kristmas. The Kristmas wreaths are formed from nooses and in them are the Klans' grotesque gift to Mississippi and the workd... and empty wreath waits for the next victim.
