I have been greatly disappointed that you had to face the disturbances caused by just a few radicals which tends to overthrow all the fine work that has been done in the negro cormnunity. Your handling of the problem Tuesday could not have been better. We all realize that you acoamplished by your own actions the only possible physical control of the rioters to prevent another "Watts"o Your action will stand in my memory as an act far beyond the call of duty but, I am sure no one can describe what your duty or mine is in such a caseo We all appreciate your fine handling of the situation.

Mayor, As one of the ministers of the city of Atlanta, let me congr atulate you on your forthrightness and courage i m meeting t he situati on that arose in the Capitol Avenue Ormond Street are a on Tuesday afternoon this week . Ther e i s just no excuse for s uch r ioting as was precipitated by the "Snick" leadership. I have s omet imes wondered if policemen are not t oo quick to use their guns, which was t he excuse used in thi s . inst ance . And I have not al ways been i n agreement with certain stands t hat you have t aken wit h r espect to our city. But I have appreciated t he manner in whic h all along you have tried to work t o help the Negr o peopl eo We need courageous l eadership in this f i el d, and you have shown courage again and again. You certainl y acte d with c ourage last Tuesday o I commend you from the bottom of my heart ..about that. The reluctance of the white mind to welcome a new day in race relationships is deplorable, and l ays itsel f l iable to just such as the radical leadership perpetrated on l ast Tuesday. But we don ' t need the Stokely Carmichaels and those of his ilk who foster such actions and attitudes. They do not help the Negro. They hurt him. Thank you, Mayor Allen, that you moved unhesitatingly and with such courage to t ry to halt an angry situation. We sincerely hope that we may have no more of what Mr . Carmichael and his gang stirred up that afternoon. Gratefully and cordially yours, tif4 L. F. VanLandingham, Pastor Inman Park Methodist Church �A. G. SMITH, Pres ident CHAS. H. SMITH, Y.-Pres.

Your acti on as you kn ow has attracted national attention, and you may be pressured to accept 2nd spot on a national ticket o I still have your l ot ter t el l ing me that you only wish d to be mayor of Atlanta , and did not want any national office . I thought your decision wi3e at the time , and still t hi nk you would hove more political influence as mayor of a great city than as a nveep" on any ticket nationall y , altho it seems obvious t o me t hat "Bobby" Kennedy is giving you serious consideration as a possibl e runni ng n1ate IF he should head a national ticket f or the Democratic Party, as you'd be a natural .for him despite the difference in your ages , looking at it from the practical view that the Kennedy money can take the N. East , Ohio , Illinois and the far West ( California ) but no amount of mone~ can carry the South for Bobby Kennedy l Texas woula at least split 0-50 for him, the anti - LBJ vote o • • • as I see it a If offered such a deal and you wish to try it in the future, my offer of help for you is still open and I still have a heavy political following in most of the States . We were unable to put Sam Yorty over in California BUT it was a close one •••• and make no mistake about it Sam Yorty is a good man . He was, in our war, Capt~ Sam Yorty, Air Corp, attached to the 3rd ~ o n Leyte in the Pacifica o •• but I agree uith the majority of the people of our city that Atlanta needs your proven leadership, most especially during these trying times of racial unrest along with rapid economic ero,-,th• and I hope that even tho offered such a post y~ l chose to remain in Atlanta, C~ Sincerelyi Edgar P.

Box 4207 At lanta, Ga. 30302 waga-tv H .W.RAY GENE RAL MANAGE R PAUL RAYMON DALE CLARK STATION MANAGER DIREC TOR OF PUBLI C AFFAIRS ROUTE TO: _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __ Monday, September 12, 1966 Indignation over the meaningless murder of a teenage youth this weekend is not a reaction just of the Negro residents of Atlanta •. It is shared by thousands, by the great majority of people whose feelings reflect the real character of the City. Public indignation and condolence must be expressed. As one public voice, Channel 5 expresses it. We support the Mayor's pledge to bring those responsible to justice. Anyone who has any information regarding this crime has the moral obligation to report it to the authorities . Because of this shocking murder of an innocent youth, shot from a passing car, the weekend disorders may have been an understandable reaction of frustrated people, trapped in conditions they cannot change, faced with problems they cannot solve alone. But disorder and violence in the street solve nothing. Those so-called "leaders" who whip up the emotions of these people have a record of zero on the scoreboard. Atlanta's poverty people need schools, jobs, decent places to live. There is no magic wand t o wave to get these things . But throwing rocks and firebombs won't get them either. They aren't going to help anybody with anything. The public policy must be to contain them and restrict them, using whatever police power is necessary. WAGA -TV offers a re asonable oppo rtu nity t o reply to the v iews expressed in the ed itor ia l to a responsible person or group representing a significant opposing viewpo int, prov ided request for rep ly t ime is subm itted to WAGA -TV with in one week of th is te lecast . �WAGA-TV Editorial (Continued) Monday, September 12, 1966 Page 2 Let us as a Community, regardless of race or creed , stand behind this policy. Let us stand behind it not in anger or resentment, but simply because no other policy can serve the public interest. The public we mean takes in everybody, those in the riot neighborhoods and everybody else . For his own safety and his value to the City, we ask Mayor Allen to get out of the streets. He has demonstrated this City's concern, and publicly delivered this city's pledge to move against the problems of slums and poverty and delinquency. He has shown tremendous leadership . Further partici pat i on in any riot scenes won't convi n c e anybody of anything. We urge him to stick to the conf erence table, wi th true representatives of the majority of Atlanta's Negro citizens. The loud mouths and wild proposals of the would-be leaders are great for stirring up disorde r and vi olence, but they don't put any points on the scoreboard. Channel 5 calls upon the Ci ty's prominent Negro citizens to unite--now-in a strong leadership force that can speak out for the maj ority, and get some results. The only answer to the irres pons i ble a ction o f recent days is responsible a ction by respons i ble forc es. WAGA-TV Editorial is presented weekdays: 7:25 a. m. 7 : 10 p.m. in EARLY PANORAMA 11:20 p.m . in LATE PANORAMA �
