When it rains the ditch overuns with water, the water therefore backs up into my bac~cdoor into my house an d my whole downstairs is then flooded with water. When this h appens I have to send my children to stay at my mother until we can get th e housF dry from the water. My baby has taken pneumonia fro 1!1 the lfi'ouse being flooded in the 18st rains. I have called the Sewage· and Park Depa.rtments concerning the problem, . but I have.go t no results fro m the departments. The ditch needs to be dug de~per or something so that the water will not' be overun with water during a rain. If ~u can give me any kind of help to ::.top the the wat e r from flooding my house I would Appreciate your hepp •. I feel that you will help me with my problem.

MORRISS MEMO TO: Ray A. Nixon - Director of Public Works FROM: Ken Lancaster ASST, CHIEF OF CONSTRUCTION As directed, an investigation was made at #555 East Anthony Street N. W. to determine if we could be of assistance in the solution of a flood problem. We found that storm water from the streets does not flow into this drain ditch, and, therefore, responsibility by this Department cannot be justified. However, there is a great volume of storm water flowing into this ditch from City property belonging to the Parks Departmens. I believe, it would relieve the problem of this ditch -overflowing onto this person's property if this water was intercepted and directed to Proctor Creek. · This could be accomplished by constructing a bunker at the top of the small ditch bank or by the grading of a small berm ditch parallel to the existing one.

Delius General Manager of Parks and Recreation Department of Parks Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Delius: Thia i1 in reply to your l etter of May 24, -addre&aad to the Regional Director of our Southeast Region, regarding the Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta. I think it would be reasonable to assume that the painting itself, as an object important in American history, could eventually be considered for inclusion on the National Register which is to be expanded under the provisions of Public Law 89- . 665, the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. To be placed on the National Register and thus eligible for Federal matching grant-in-aid funds, the painting would have to be included in a statewide survey and historic preservation plan approved by the Secretary of the Interior. The Georgia His- · torical Commission has been designated by Governor Maddox as Georgia's official State liaison with the Department of the Interior in the administration of this act as it may relate to the State of Georgia. While Congressional action on the Department's appropriation for fiscal year 1968 has not been completed, it appears unlikely at this time that there will be any Federal matching grant-in-aid funds available under P.L. 89-665 during fiscal year 1968. We are enclosing a copy of the act and a copy of "Federal Financial Assistance Through the Secretary of the Interior for Historic Preservation" for your inf ormation. Sincerely yours, ~~ Ofa Rober t M. Utley Acting Chief, of Archeol ogy and Historic Preservation Enclosures 2 i., I I ! o,o..',\.-, / �

From June 9 through September 1 , 1967 , we had trained 153 classes whi ch had a total enrollment of 27 .6 chil ren . In addi tion , some 23 , 077 participated during " 1 lay eriods ow t a t fall is here we have removed the swimming poo s from their outdoor locations an already t~ree of the four have been installed in the basements of various schools where showers and drain ge are available and they will continue to be utili~ed through the school year . The structures sustain virtually no vand lism (several other cities had terrible experiences) and we fully expect to place them back in operation come next summer . Your don tion fortunately was sufficient enough to provide heaters to raise the water temperature so there ' s no problem there when cold weather sets in . · 11 • ~le don ' t really know how to estimate the life expectancy of the portable pools but we can certainly say with great deal of assurance that literally hundreds of thousands of children in the coming years will enjoy something that would not hav been possible had it not been for the generosity of the Rich Foundation .

I passed on to him your suggestions that the long introduction be removed from the front of the tape with a view toward placing them at the end, if at all. I am sure he wi ll be in touch. Dear Mr. Delius: I have a perfect master so t here is no problem about reproducing copies as long as you continue to utilize thisparticular narration. Of course, as wi th the original script, production and music, there is no charge on my par t. if I would hope that eventually an entirely new presentation could be produc ed. That old painting should be given the benefi t of the advanced, state of the art of audioanimat ronics with stereo music and automatic lighting to draw more of those Yankee doll ars through the turnstiles. I might even do the job myself for a lifetime pass to come back and see it every now and then. '; i,,,;:,1:~'t-· .~ ' "1 , , , .
