  • Text: Lester, Bo Still 'Exch ang ing Barbs ATLANTA (UPI) - Guber natorial candidates Howard (Bo) Callaway and Lester Maddox exchanged barbs Tuesday night when both addressed a meeting of the Georgia Municipal Association. Callaway, a Republican, accused his Democratic opponent of making wild promises to get himself elected and knowing full well the money would not be ' available tofulfillthepromises. "The old saying that money doesn't grow on trees apparently hasn' t registered with my • opponent, ' ' Callaway said. The GOP nominee speciflcally accused Maddox of promlsing an education group to give teachers a $1,200 per year pay raise in the first year of his administration "but he failed to tell the public about this. " " He failed to tell them they will have to foot a $200 million bill in four years to fulfill his pledge, " Callaway s aid. He said Maddox also had pr omised to triple the normal' increase in local school financeing and "he doesn't have any idea where you can r aise that kind of money. " Secret Meetings Cited Callaway mentioned as well that secret plane trip his oppo. nent took to meet J ames Gray in Florida and the closed:door mee ting of Atlanta ar ea De mocrats where Maddox ls alleged to have promised endorse the 1968 Democratic lnees and three Negroes running in state e lections. Maddox has s ince denied he made any such pact with Democrats, calling the charge a " sinister plot." Mystery continued to shroud the trip to Florida. Both incidentswereexamples . of "Maddox' s irresponsibility, " according to Callaway The republican pledged support most of the major plat forms of the GMA including th continuation of direct grants to cities, new sources oflocal revenue and tax relief for hom.eowners. Barbs Returned Maddox, who addressed the group later, let fiy with barbs even more pointed than Callaway's. "Nothing but a fool would say he would take politics out of any department, " Maddox s aid. "He (Callaway) either ls a fool or thinks you are. " Callaway had pledged to take politics out of the highway department. · "Bo Callaway and the bankers that control him have climbed down

How sad to see Georgia's people"" Taugb at their own funeral. · PEGGY FOX BARTON. ATLANTA-I am sickened by what the voters of this state have done to Georgia by their choice of a nominee for governor. It is time we did something about laws governing the primaries, and stop this deplorable manipulation of the candidates by a group of Republicans who have helped put a man like Maddox into the race for gov~rnor .. CONCERNED GEORGIAN. Atlanta.,Georgia October 4.,1966 -·-.for Ivar, City Hall Atlanta,Georgia Dear Mayor Allan: First we wamt to say how mu.ch we love you as our Mayor of Atlanta and also for the wonderful way that you handled the racial disturbance on Boulevard recently. We certainly know that there would have been more trouble had you are gone over and settled it. Everyone loves you for your courage and act. But now., everyone is scared to death with the loss of Ellis Arnall as Governor and just a week hardly from this day and now it is Charles Weltner. How disbessing and everyone is so frightened that the thought of an indiot.,insane ,unedcuated man who knows nothing but tbouble and hate is about to take over. Oh God,please don 1 tlet this happeno Mayor Allan., we can't have him in the high office of our beloved State. It i s tragic . Please do sooiething to get him out of office ., please, please do something. Don't you t hink that Charl e s Weltner would c ons ider t his.,he is such a wonderful person and we would all want him. Please do something about this situation,i.mpeach him or anything to get him out. You know Mayo:irAll.an t he Republicians voted for that idiot or he would not have had a chance. Isn't t hat the lowest thing to do, but they did it to get Esslis out. We are so afraid that he might get in with his smooth talking. We understand that he got a lot of votes too in the South Georgia. area where the poor,dum people live and you don't know any better. It is a a.uf)tl thing to happen to our State. Maybe the write in for Govenor would get hi..m out. I beg you Mayor Allan,please do not let him come ino �

  • Text: THE CHRJSTI. Editorials _"First Saturday, October 1, 1966 I the blade, then l(eeping sight of the ·goal In a lull during the Negro outburst in Atlanta earlier this month, Mayor Ivan · Allen allowed himself to think aloud in the company of a television reporter as they walked through a troubled ?rea on a morning after. What Mr. Allen said'was to the effect that there were often excesses at a time of tumultuous change, but that this should not deflect society from its goal. This was the observation of a levelheaded and far-seeing man. And it was all the more remarkable because the Mayor had borne the brunt of considerable abuse from th~ more activist Negroes involved in Atlanta's troubles. Mr. Allen forecast, nevertheless, the effect that this Negro outburst was likely to have on Georgia politics. This effect has now manifested itself in the outcome of Wednesday's Democratic primary election. Segregationist Lester Maddox triumphed over moderate Ellis Arnall, who was seeking to get back to the governor's chair that he had once occupied for a term. This leaves the contest in November to t wo men whose views on race are not very far apart: Howard Callaway, the Republican gubernatorial candidate, comes from t he same part of the spectrum as Mr. Maddox. In other words, the white backlash seems to have swept out of the r unning any moderate candidate for the Georgia governorship. There is little doubt that the t urn that the Negro revolution has taken this summer is having an effect on American public opinion as a whole. Figures quoted by pollster Louis Harris in a CBS television documentary this week showed strikingly how white attitudes toward Negroes have changed since the summer began. The trend already was apparent by June. By then, public opinion was split about evenly into "pro" and "anti"-a fall off from the euphoric days of not so long ago when sympathizers with the Negro revolution outnumbered resisters two to one. According to Mr. Harris, the end of the summer sees this proportion roughly reversed. Re-sisters to the current trend or pace of the revolution now outnumb~r sympathizers two to one. From Atlanta, attention now shifts to San Francisco. There-after Mr. Maddox's success in the Georgia primary-the immediate question is whether this week's outbursts in the Negro sections of San Francisco will swing back to Republican Ronald Reagan those votes which he was apparently beginning to lose to Democrat "Pat" Brown in the campaign for the governorship of California. Mr. Reagan is cut in a different mold from that of the victor in Wednesday's primary in Georgia; but there is general agreement that in t heir respective states both he and Mr. Maddox have directly or indirectly sought the white backlash vote. For our part, we are inclined to go along with Atlanta's Mayor Allen. Neither the outcome of the Georgia primar y nor the regrettable and intermittent outbursts in the Negro ghettos of big cities is likely t o deter American society as a whole from the goal which it has set itself - equal r ights, equal opportunities, equal responsibilities for all. The goal has within itself its own dynamism. Human failings and human excesses may cause the caravan to falter or impose detours. But it has not turned back or disintegrated in its nearly two-hundred-year journey-and is hardly likely to do so n ow. ~.. ~ ~:-;. - ,.· '-A .,_, • i -• -· •"'~ • • Let teachers teach ,._i,..~,.,..,~ ·~ --..-.Jtninistration probably considers itself for:;. • _....---- ~-" -"°' have even 1,250 train,.M-,.,,...-- �
