Ku Klux Klan robes auctioned for up to $1,425 in Howell, MI
Advertisements [?]
HOWELL, Mich. (AP) _ A Ku Klux Klan robe sold for one-thousand-425 dollars tonight during an auction of robes and other K-K-K items that's attracted a high level of interest and criticism.

Another Klan robe sold for one-thousand-150 dollars at the auction in Howell.

One person in attendance was seen wearing a K-K-K pin, and another wore an arm band with a Nazi swastika.

One of the robes was bought for 700-dollars by the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University. Museum officials hope to use the robe -- designed for a woman -- as part of its efforts to teach tolerance.
