(Davie, Florida) Scout leaders decide not to march in parade if Klan to march also. Davie city council canceled parade to keep Klan chapter from marching in parade alone. [SCOUT - reacts to decision.] [KLANSMAN - says Ku Klux Klan trying to promote new image.] [Boy Scout official Ralph RENICK - thinks Ku Klux Klan should assume public posture on what they stand for, not who they stand with.] Next year, Boy Scouts say they'll change rules of parade to exclude Klan; Ku Klux Klan may take it to court
