Atlanta, Georgia 30315 OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIOENT October 11, 1966 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor, City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: I have no idea how many crank letters you receive, or how many people attempt to tell you how the Mayor's office could be run more effectively. This is not one of those letters . As a resident and an enthusiastic supporter of everything that is good for Atlanta and Georgia, I want to commend you for your forthright and courageous position in the current political quagmire. Your leadership in dealing with the problems existing in the Fire Department further d emonstrated to me that the offices of the Mayor were in very sound hands. As I sat, comfortable and secure, watching you on television being violently shaken from the rooftop of the automobile in the recent civil rights demonstrations, I couldn't help but wonder how many of your critics would have the " guts" as Mayor, to go directly into the fray in an effort to use the power of your office to restore logic and order to the city. I only hope that a situation of this kind making demands on your bravery may never recur. sincere respect and appreciation for the good job you are doing as the Mayor of Atlanta. My Sincere ly, EPS : mb �

  • Text: Tulsa, Oklahoma September 19, 1966 Honorable Ivan Allen Atlanta, Georgia De£r Mayor Allen; With all the criticism being levelled and all the news media play being given to your recent racial situation, I would like to take this means of expressing my approval (for what little it is worth) of the manner you and your city have handled yourselves. Presently living in Oklahoma, moving there from 4 years in Alabama proir to which I lived for 3 years in Chicago, I have a relatively objective -viewpoint regarding the racial issue geosraphically speaking. I have no .feelings one way ot the other regarding colors or races as such. However, I have learned to harbor very strong feelings with regard to rights v. s. responsibilities and so have very little regard for those groups, regardless of color, who would prefer to demonstrate and protest, rather than work for their objectives. While I feel there many people who symphatize with this view, I certainly had not seen it exemplified by many of our public office holders and political aspirants. For the most part they had capitulated to whatever radical demands that came along and actually allowed . themselves be "shook down" or blackmailed into giving in to demands just to quie~ the noise and minimize any political repurcussions. It was then, especially refreshing to see you exercise restraint while giving the radical elements a chance to quiet the waters on their own initiative, r efusing to talk until the waters were quieted, and then taking firm action when it was proper and driving home the fact that your city was above all else a city of law and order. I'm sure that the great majority of the citizens of Atlanta admired and respected your course of action. My only purpose in writing this letter is to let you know that there~ome of us in other sections of the U. s. who do too. When we have enough men of conviction in all the various public offices, rights and responsibilities will come in the same package and earned, not rioted for. Sinc~rely You5\// ~ - ~· t;/Y.;1-~~ t - - - : : i""'"'-.u.u. G. Vancil (_ �

  • Text: Atlanta and LA There are mayors and there are mayors. Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. of Atlanta has been 1a:tely in the news, his city having been the scene of racial rioting even though it is the mos,t advanced of major Southern cdities in the enlightened handling of its racial pTOblems. Mayor Al. !en not o-Il!ly acknowledges the problems but concedes that his ' city has not pl.'logressed as fast as desiraMe in eliminating them. In stark cont rast to most Southern politioia,ns, he testified in favor of the public accommodaticms section of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, saying Federal law in this area was necessary; he has favored the open occupancy section of the civil rights bill which p•aissed the House of Represenrtartives. Throughout the riotilng in h1s city, Mayor Allen was on the scene, in the thick of it, literally r isking life and limb. He didn't remember a speech he had to give in another part of the state, excuse himself from duty and take off. He didn't limit his efforts to the obvious cries for ·support of the police in the face of violence. He worked closely and constantly with Negroes and whites trying to ·restore order. One has the feeling that if Mayor Allen of Atlanta were appe~ring before a Senate committee there would be no need for questionling concerning his leadership abilities, but that if such questions were asked, and no matter how severely phrased, he would have meaningful answers, for his city and for himself. He wouldn't plead helplessness. There are mayors and there are mayors. �

Student Nonviolent Ooordlnatlng Committee,. .chief advocate Of black power, encountered mounting hostility today as a result of the Neg-ro riot here \ yesterday. White officials and state pollI ticians placed all the blame fot tho riot on ithe student commit~ A few Negro leaders added cautiously worded criticism, bu others said a potential for racial explosion had existed in he.no area '"ft)r some time. Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. and Police Chief Herbert Jenkins promised stern offic~al action to keeg the studllnt committee from inciting trouble. "It is now the Nonstudent Violent Committee," Chief Jenkins said as he announced that the police force was strengthening its riot control organization. "We must and will deal with it accordingly," he said. Several candidates for the ' on Page 36, Column 1 ' Continued �] .N.C.C. ASSAILED ON ATLANTA RIOT Continued From Page I, CoL 4 I Democratrl.c nomination for Governor in next Wednesday's primary joined in the condemnation. . Ellis Arnall, the most liberal of the candidates and the election favorite, said th:e student, ~omm,ittee was "shameful. "I denounce black power, racial violence, insurrection and civil anarchy," he declared. Stokely Carmichael, the 25I year-old chairman of 1lhe ~ " mitte&, who made famousthe cry of plack power, was singled out for severe denunciation. Mayor Allen, clearly angered, said : - -'-'"J.1'- Stokely- Carmiehael is looking for a battleground, he I created one last hight, and he'll be met in whatever situation he cares to create." However, some disputed whether Mr. Carmichael had created the battleground. Dr. King Comments The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, who was in Chicago t oday, ' issued a statement through his Atlanta office. It said: "It is still my firm conviction that a riot is socially destructive and self-defeating. On the other hand, while condemning riots it is jus t as important to condemn the conditions which bring r iots into being. "A r iot is the desperate language of the unheard. What has America failed to hea r ? It has failed to hear that the economic plight of the Negro p·o or has worsened and that the promises of equality have not been m et." The C ommunity Council of t he Atlanta Area, Inc., recently studied the area where the rioting occurred and reported that the chances of an outbreak were "good." It cited poor h ousing, dislike of the p olice, few r ecr ea tion facilities and s kepticisrn toward the city's p romises of help. Some r esidents of ,S ummerhill, the scene of t he disturbance, met today to draft a list of grievances t o present to the city. Committees w· go from door to door to gather complaints. The Rev. Roy WilliaJJlS, vice president of the summei·hill Civic League, contended 't hat the swdent committee had whipped them up with hate" yesterday. But he added: "I have told our city politl· cians we were sitting on a powder keg. Conditions here are some of the worst in Atlanta." The scene of the Tiot Is a deteriorating neighborhood tha has almost completed a transi ,t ion from white to Negro. The stud.ent commtttee reportedlYi Tas worked itnere severa months.

Six.teen persons were Injured, several cars were damaged and between 60 a...TJ.d 70 persons were arrested during the rioting, which occurred on Capitol Avenue two blocks from Atlanta.'.s new $18-million .stadium. About 750 city policemen were in the area and 300 state police troopers stood by. A large police force patrolled the 11rea toda.y, but only a few Incidents were reported. About 10 persons were arrested this afternoon when they refused to break up a street-comer "black power" rally. · Fire Bomb Thrown A Molotov cocktail was throw into a building a t a nother Negro area about two miles away early this morning. The building, 'housing a tire company, was heavily damaged. Four other less serious fires that officials considered possible case of arson were reported. Fire fig hting was hindered because about 500 firemen are on strike.
