A bloody, noisy brawl erupted Thursday night between Ku Klux Klansmen and anti-Klan demonstrators outside the Glendale Central Library, where a controversial debate was scheduled over the so-called Pace Amendment--a proposal to deport from the United States everyone not of Western European heritage. Fearing further violence, organizers canceled the debate, which had also attracted leaders of the Nazi Party and the Jewish Defense League.

A bomb that exploded Thursday morning at the entrance of a Glendale medical building may have been directed at a white supremacist organization whose leader has office space in the structure, the Glendale Fire Department reported. The 3:30 a.m. explosion shattered windows at the two-story building in the 1200 block of S. Glendale Ave., causing about $5,000 in damage, said Capt. John Orr of the department's arson-explosives unit. There were no reported injuries, he said.

The League of Pace Amendment Advocates, a white separatist organization, appears to have moved out of its national offices in the 1200 block of South Glendale Avenue, less than a week after a bomb damaged part of the building the group occupied. George King, the group's director of education, said in an interview last week that the bombing came as the group was preparing to move to "larger, more convenient quarters" to accommodate its growing numbers.

A Glendale-based white supremacist group announced plans this week to move to Casper, Wyo., to support leader Daniel Johnson, who is running for Congress. But the move depends on how receptive Casper city officials are to the idea. Johnson has indicated that the League of Pace Amendment Advocates will not relocate if the Casper City Council approves a resolution next week condemning the organization. Johnson is running as an independent candidate for a House seat vacated when Rep. Dick Cheney was appointed secretary of defense.

A minority rights activist, chastised by Glendale city officials in June for staging a racial forum that erupted into violence, has presented the City Council with a plan that he said would increase minority hirings and promotions. Ray Reyes, head of a new group called Glendale Community Issues, said at the council meeting last Thursday that the city has not hired and promoted enough minority employees to managerial jobs.

Ray Reyes' recent actions as chairman of the Glendale Human Relations Council were denounced by the Glendale city manager as "shameful" and lambasted by a rival within the civil rights organization as radical "Glendale-bashing." But Reyes says he is used to such criticism and does not seem particularly worried about a campaign to remove him next week as head of the non-governmental council.
