Glover: In further reference to your letter of May 7 and my reply of May 9 , 1969 concerning an incident between you and the golf star ter a t Pi edm:mt Golf Course on May 6, I wish to advise you that the following infer~ rnation has been sUbrnitted by the Assistant General Manager of P rks . The golf starter states that he advised you at least three, and probably four , times not to disturib the balls in the ball rack and explained to you that it was impossible to keep them strai ght if the general public confused the arrangement, etc . According to the starter, you did not remove just one bill, but seven or eight, and then both you and the starter became confus don which ball was first. Further , the golf starter states that after you had i nor d his request not to bother th ball rack thr e or four times th t he became very angry and did, in fact , us the language st t din your compl int. While I can cert inly in no ·way defend the foul l ngu ge used by the •starter in your presence , I must defend his position in his having advised you th t th gen ral public could not have access to the ball r ck in th t it would r ult in confusion ov r who ball was first , etc. Thank you again for your p tron g , I am Cordi lly, Jack c. liu G ner 1 M nag r of JC'Dajw cc: P rk nd R er tion Iv n All n,.

The information from the starter, as usual, was different from the complaint by Mr. Glover. According to our starter, he advised Mr. Glover three or four times to not disturb balls in ball rack that it was impossible for him to keep them straight. According to the starter Mr. Glover did not remove just one ball but he removed 7 or 8 and they became contused on whose ball was first. Finally, after Mr. Glover ignored the starter's request of 3 or 4 times, to stop removing balls from rack, starter admitted that he became very angry and used the language Mr. Glover : quoted in his complaint.

J a ck Delius General ~nnager o f Parks Dear Yayor Allen: Over the period of the past y ear , we have had numerous meetings with representat ives of the City of Atlanta in an attempt to utilize several area s adjacent to the above numbered project as joint development areas . The intent was for the City of Atlanta to acquire the r ern.ai nder of designated parcels of property and develop mini-parks or utilize the property as additions to nrn·r exi sti ng parks. The purpose of the plan was to bett er tie the f reeway i nto the existing neighborhoods . · The origi nal idea ran into fina ncial problems and ·couJ_d not be e,dvanc ed , however, we feel t he idea is sound and should be u..riderte.ken . After investigating the sit uation , we now find it possible fo1~ the State and Federal governments to a cquire these parcels as whole t akes and actually provide the l andscapi ng of the designated areas as part of the project. The only obligat ion of the City of Atlanta would be the rrai ntenance of these areas. To forrn.alize the respons i bilities i n :Lnwl ementing this plan , a forJ:11.al agreement from the City of Atlanta to undert ake the maintenance of these a1·eas will be required. Attached is one (1) set of pri nts outliniri.g three (3) areas where joint development . is proposed and they are as follows: 1. Extension of Orme Park east of the proposed freeway bet\'reen . Virginia Avenue and Crestridge Drive. 2. Area east of freeway right-of-way and Greenland Drive bounded by Courtney Drive on south and Hillpine Drive on the north. 3. Area west of freeway right-of-way between intersection of Courtney Drive and San Antonio Drive. �Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Page Ti·TO October 30, 1969 At present, no landscaping plans have been developed on these a,reas. This will be done along with the construction plans for the project and will be coordinated with your office. Ther-e rr,ay be other areas available for joint development, however, the location and limits of these areas will have a await final grading plans. If other areas are available that satisfy the overall plan, we will coordinate the de,velopment of these areas with your department. If the City of Atlanta is interested in participating in this joint development plan, plea se fu:cnish this office with a statement of intent to maintain these area s at your earliest convenience. Revised right--of-w-ay plans, which include the provision for these joint development area s have been submitted to the Bureau of Public Roads for approval . Your prompt reply to this request will be apprecia,ted and will help maintain the overa,11 schedule for completion of tre project a,s pre sented at the June 10, 1969 Public Hearing . · Yours very truly, STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT OF GEORGIA Lewis E.

OR AW ER 1734 ATLANTA , GA . 30301 AD V ERTISING & S A LES 404-875-3 4 11 PROMOTION DEPA RTMENT I 1 The l.!.ibrary March 6, 1969 Mr. Jack Delius Superintendent of Parks Parks Department Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Jack Bill Finch is an old friend of mine whom I have known for many years and for this reason I was delighted to know that his firm has been retained by you to plan and make recommendations for the building to house the Cyclorama Battle Painting. l In this letter I have proposed and described the need for an Orientation Room which will serve to prepare the visitor and put his mind in a historic framework to better understand the Painting when he sees it. With this background, the visitor will riot think of the battle action on the Paintin~ consciously, or sub-consciousl.Y,, as an isolated episode of the War Between _ the States, but rather as an integrated and dramatic development of Sherman's March to the Sea. The significance of this battle can stand on its own feet, but when placed in a running context of Sherman's Campaign, the visitor will have a far · better understanding and ~omprehension of it. I am utterly delighted and pleased that steps are undertaken to get the project started for a beautiful and efficient new home for this rarest of Paintings. If I can be of any help in an advisory capacity, I will be most honored and pleased to serve. Cordi ally, WL,11.~ Wilbur G. Kurt z , J r. :mh �
