Room 600 Atlanta, Georgia 30303 �\ \ EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OFFICE .OF ECONOMIC WASHINGTON , D.C. 20506 Clllll(JI I lJNITY July 11, 1968 Mr. Dan Sweat Director of Governmental Liaison City Hall Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Dan: Attached you will find a brochure which will give you some idea of the Job Corps art exhibition entitled "A Chance To Be Somebody". As I mentioned on the phone, the exhibition began January 18 in New York City at the Time-Life Building. After New York, the exhibition hit Chicago, Minneapolis , Omaha , St. Louis. And the schedule reflects that it will hit Atlanta around August 15 . After Atlanta, it goes to Houston, Los Angeles (with a show in Los Angeles and one in the Watts section), Portland and Cleveland. It is my understanding that Sc.ripto is the Atlanta sponsor. And Mary Lou has the "scoop" on the whole thing. Of course, Scripto will decide how many they will invite to the opening but they invited 1500 in New York. It was a swinging affair. You mentioned the poor being invited on the phone. We hope to in some way establish an ongoing program for all segments of the Atlanta population to view the exhibit while it is in the city. It will be there through Labor Day . The opening is one way that we can pull in the busines smen , civic leaders, art community, etc., so that they can possibl1 have ideas about bringing other people in after the opening. I know that you will be contacted ab ou t this soon . And I hope you can do what you can to make this opening a success. 1 1 11 be down before too long and hope to see you then. Best regards always, 9~ ��vocational skills Job Corps vocational instruction is planned in steps so a Corps member can enter employment after each level of training.

The 93 Job Corps conservation centers are operated on public lands by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Interior, and by four states. The 28 urban and 3 special centers, located generally at unused military bases or leased private facilities , are operated under contract by 18 large companies , seven universities, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, The Texas Educalional Foundation , Inc., and the Young Women's Christian Association . Job Corps trainees are helped to find jobs by the U. S. Department of Labor, and the state employment services. Two voluntary agencies, Women In Community Service (WICS) and Joint Action for Community Service (JACS), help trainees adjust to community life and stick with their jobs. WICS also recruits for Job Corps, as does the AFL-CIO . 1. Untitled/ LARRY ANGEL/ Honolulu , Hawaii/Vocation: Art 2. Hieroglyphics/ ARTHUR ARNOLD/ Pacific Grove, Californi a Vocation: Forestry 3.

At the 124 Job Corps centers, the program includes : individual tutoring and counseling, both formal and informal; trained staff to supervise and help enrollees 24 hours a day and on weekends; special new self-instructional materials to help enrollees move along at their own speed; modern equipment, donated by business firms, to teach modern vocational skills. who comes to Job Corps? Young men and women between the ages of 16 and 22, who are out of school, unable to find an adequate job, and in need of a change of environment to become useful and productive citizens-these are the young people who come to Job Corps. Six of every 10 come from broken homes; 63 percent from homes where the head of the household was unemployed; 60 percent live in substandard housing; 64 percent have been asked to leave school; 80 percent have not seen a doctor or dentist in 10 years. Only about 60 percent ever helcj a job, full or part-time, and their average annual salary was $639. More than half of the male recruits of draft age are unfit for military serv.ice for educational or health reasons. A youngster entering Job Corps has a reading and math ability of about fifth grade, on the average, even though he or she has completed nine years of school. More than 30 percent of new enrollees cannot read or write. Most enrollees have never slept between sheets, never shared a bedroom with only one other. Some have never had electric lights. Almost all have developed an acute resistance to conventional schooling. For every 10 months spent in Job Corps, the average youngster gains one and one-half grade levels in reading, and almost two grade levels in mathematics. Similar gains are made in vocational training. Job Corps members grow accustomed to early rising, to regular hours, to daily exercise and sports. They learn how to get along with all kinds of people- both in Job Corps, and outside. They develop good work habits and a new sense of responsibility . They find direction, a "way to go."

In its first three years, Job Corps has touched the lives of 165,000 young people . Otthe 124,000 who have gone through the program , 70 percent are making constructive use of the education and training they received in Job Corps. Over 69,000 have taken jobs, earning an average of $1.70 an hour; 10,600 have gone back to school or on to college; and 8,800 are serving in the armed forces . Among the present employers of Job Corps trainees are Campbell Soup, Western Electric, Chrysler, Ford, Avco, Lockheed , Sears, Honeywell , General Electric, Liberty Mutual, United Air Lines, DuPont, Cessna Aircraft, Continental Baking, Safeway, Burroughs, IBM, ITT, Consolidated Edison, AMPEX, General Motors, Uni-Royal. These paintings are by-products of what many consider the most significant function of Job Corps : setting free the individual's basic ability to learn . They are by Corps members from all over the country, young men and women training for many different kinds of jobs. To become independent and responsible citizens in today's society , Corps members must first learn to understand and appreciate themselves and the world about them . In Job Corps they have this chance through a broad spectrum of learning experiences, including art. An elective activity, Job Corps' art program has helped develop bright new confidence in thousands of young people by giving them their first sense of accomplishment. This exhibition is tangible proof of what can happen when creative and learning capabilities are unlocked . Sixteen of the private organizations which operate Job Corps centers under contract to OEO have made this ~xhibition possible. They are: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Avco Corporation Brunswick Corporation Burroughs Corporation Delta Education Corporation General Learning Corporation International Business Machines Corporation International Telephone & Telegraph c·orporatlon Northern Natural Gas Company Packard Bell Electronics Corporation Philco-Ford Corporation Radio Corporation of America Training Corporation of America U. s. Industries, Inc. Westinghouse Electric Corporation Xerox Corporation �contributions to the nation Even while training, Job Corpsmen are contributing to national betterment. In improving the Nation's forests, parks, and grasslands, they have performed conservation work worth $38,000,000 to the Nation. Corpsmen have built and maintained 4900 miles of roads, thousands of picnic tables, fireplaces and parking spaces. They have developed and improved 76 miles of fishing streams and 16,500 acres of fish and wildlife habitat. They have planted 15,900 acres of trees and shrubs, and improved and reforested 12,800 acres of timber. Forty-four young men at a Job Co,ps center near Oakland, Calif., all found Jobs in the same company last week-as U.S. Army paratroopers. T he 44, nearly all from poor f amilies, volunteered as a unit, and have been assigned to a special platoon at Fort Lewis, W ash.,jor basic training. Probably because of their stint at the Job Corps center, they averaged several points higher than the norm on the induction test. W ithout that added education, said R ecruiting Sergeant Darryl Adkins-himself a veteran paratrooper- only one out of four might have qualified for the airborne elite. -from T I M E, November 3, 1967 In time of disaster and danger, Corpsmen have labored around the clock - fighting fires, restoring flood-damaged areas, assisting in tornado clean up, and conducting search and rescue missions. service to lo~al communities Corpsmen and women also volunteer their leisure time and services in dozens of projects that benefit their host communities. They work with the handicapped, sponsor Little League baseball teams, donate evening time at homes for the aged. Some work with retarded youngsters, others shop for elderly people of the neighborhood. Several women's centers operate nursery schools for local children. Corps members paint ambulances and community recreation centers, construct wheelchair tables for paraplegics at veterans hospitals, build furniture for youngsters enrolled in Head Start,-collect and repair toys for needy children. All Job Corps centers contribute to such public causes as the March of Dimes, the American Red Cross, United Fund, the Muscular Dystrophy Association , United Cerebral Palsy, the Salvation Army. contribution to public education What Job Corps has learned about educating the school dropout is being applied in public school systems across the Nation, with the aim of helping to keep troubled youngsters in school as long as possible. I have virited over 25 Job Corps Centers and know the tremendous value this program is to the under-privileged y outh of our_country. I would like to personally help make this, their "last chance," a success. - Archie M oore, former boxing champion The interchange of teaching methods and materials between Job Corps and the public schools began in the summer of 1966, when 21 teachers from Seattle, Simi Valley(a Los Angeles suburb), Detroit, and Washington, D.C., took up year-long posts as staff members in four Job Corps conservation centers. At year-end, the teachers returned to their school systems to introduce Job Corps methods -and materials in-local classrooms. During the 1967-68 school year, 17 teachers from 11 urban school systems are teaching and learning in Job Corps centers. how to help a Job Corps trainee get a job If you are interested in employing a young man or woman trained by Job Corps, or if you want to help one of these young people find a job_and hold on to it- wnte or call one of the seven Job Corps Regional Offices : Office of Economic Opportunity Great Lakes Region 623 South Wabash Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60605 Telephone : (312) 353-4775 Office of Economic Opportunity Southeast Region 730 Peachtree Street , N.E.

Smith Mrs. Gayle Matson Mrs. Lou Ashton Mrs. Harriet Bush passed out questionnaire s pertaining to Public Health and asked that they be filled in and ret urned to her. Mr. A. B, Padgett reported results of site team visit of December 2. He said that there had been a rather lengthy visit with the site team, 9:00 A. M. - 1: 00 P. M. The team had many questions. Mr. Padgett said that friends had reported that the team seemed favorably impressed with the answers to questions they raised and there was no apparent reason why they would not go ahead with their recommendations for funding at the January 26 meeting. This, of course, means that there will be no funding January las was hoped and it will necessitate shifting some items on the timetable. Mr. Padgett called on Dr. Levine for an explanation of what this means. Dr. Levine added that the site team did not at any time appear antagonistic. Thay had legitimate questions and wanted answers and were determined to probe until they got the answers. He said that he thought the group was satisfied that MACHealth was the right kind or organization in regard to MACLOG and CCAA. Dr. Levine said he felt that they were convinced that the systems approach was an excellent way for the council to have more information, therefore, decision would be somewhat easier to arrive at in this way rather than using the current standard techniques of attacking one problem at a time �Page 2 - Minutes and ignoring the interrelationshipr. of the problems. Mr. Padgett added that people on the council will have an opportunity to have explained to them any questions that they may have regarding the systems approach which they do not understand clearly. Dr. Levine discussed the impact of the delay in funding. He pointed out the fact that there were a number of things which needed attention now and there was no money with which to engage additional staff an~ this ·would necessitate going ahead with inadequate manpower in many instanc~s until April 1 at which time MACHealth should become an agency on its own. At the recommendation of the Regional Health Advisory Committee, MACHealth applied for an extension grant to continue in the organizational phase for an additional three to six months. Under this grant, urgent items can be done. Dr. Levine mentioned the need for bringing a facilities review committee into existence by February. Dr. Levine introduced the new organization liaison planner, Miss Rebecca Dinkel, and reported that she was doing an excellent job. Dr.Levine also reported the illness of Mrs.Loretta Barnes, Secretary pro tern, and told the group that Mrs. Barnes expected to leave the hospital about December 12. Dr. Levine asked the Nominating Committeee and the Council to begin thinking of logical candidates for the permanent offices: president, 5 vice presidents, and secretary. He point ed out the need for a slate to be presented before the end of December. He also said there could be nominations from the floor at the meeting in January. He said the nominating committee would be glad to hear from any individual on MACHealth who might have a logical nominee in mind for one or more of the offices. Mr.Padgett stated that the Community Council has been looked to by State Department of Public Health as a review agency for requests for federal funding and federal approval. He said that the Board of Directors of the Community Council agreed to turn this responsibility over to MACHealth as soon as we are ready . Nelson Severinghaus moved that MACHealth accept that responsibility as soon as possible. The motion passed unanimously. Dr. Levine added that any person who would like to be on this committee should mention it to the Chairman pro tern. He also pointed out that a mental health committee needs to be set up qui te soon . He urged members to participate diligently in committee work. Dr. Levine brought t he group up to date on the matter of Cobb County, the misund e rstanding through the press, etc. He stated that MACHealth is the official agency for review of all health projects involving federal government and it would redound to Cobb County's benefit to be a member in good standing of MACHealth. The council will be giving a good deal of technical assistance which will be made available to participating members, but cannot be made available to non-participating members. �Page 3 - Minutes Cobb County's holding out, said Dr, Levine, will probably mean about a 10% cut in the budget, with some reduction in staff. Dr. Levine says that he feels sure that Cobb will come in eventaully. He said that there is a commitment in the budget for 1970 from all counties except Cobb. $149,000 must be raised locally to match federal funds. Counties have committed just under $100,000. It is hoped that $37,000 can be raised from private sources such as foundations, and $112,000 f.rom . .ccimties..·.Dr.. ;: .·Levine · said -that even if Cobb decides not to come in, it is expected that participation from other Cobb County agencies will prevent Cobb from being left out of the budgetary picture altogether. Mr. Severinghaus asked if the City of Atlanta was included in the budget; Dr , Levine answered that so far no way had been devised to get city money contributions into the picture. Counties are asked to contribute on a percapita basis, which includes cities within the county, He said that there is no a priori reason why the cities should not be involved. They have an impact on health and receive benefits from health, too. Dr. Levine reported that the MACLOG incorporation was ratified in November. Miss Rebecc~ Dinkel reported her efforts to get through to Cobb County through the Chamber of Commerce. She said that Messrs. Gilbert and Graham had suggested a "cooling off" period, then beginning a new education campaign in Cobb County about MACHealth. 1• Dr. Levine br i efed the group about the work, that the emergency health services task force has been doing. He said that an application for a study is almost ready to be submitted by Georgia Tech. He said that the application must be submitted by December 20 and that the project was very closely coordinated through a task force of MACHealth. The question of local matching money and whose responsibility it will be to raise it was brought up. Dr, Levine reported that several members of the task force had ideas of where the money would come from and prospects for raising the money look good . Mr . Pinkston suggested that the board take no official action on this matter until more is known about funding, etc. Dr.Levine asked if there would be any objections to stating in the applicati on t hat the group expects to stay within the framework of the MA CHea l th guide lines. Mr. Padgett suggested that the applic ation state that the task force is working hand in glove with MACHealth. There were no objections to this statement. Gary Cutini urged that caution be used in endorsing projects in order to avoid duplication and fragmentation. Mr. Padgett agreed that MACHealth's main objective was coordination. There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 1:30 P. M. /ia �EXECUTIVE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT OFFICE OF ECONOMIC WASHINGTON, D.C. 20506 (Jllll(Jl~TIJNITY January 10, 1967 Mro Al Kuettner 675 Sherwood Road, NoEo Atlanta, Georgia 30324 Dear Mr. Kuettner: Thank you very much for your letter of December 16, 1966. Although it is true that the Office of Economic Opportunity has some money available for research and demonstration programs in housing, none of it has been earmarked for any specific cities. The work done by the National Committee against Discrimination in Housing was undertaken some time ago, before there was any clear idea of what our appropriation for this fiscal year would be. When our appropriation was reduced, it was impossible to fund all programs which had been considered, and no further action was possible on the one you mention. With its limited funds for housing demonstrations, our office has concentrated on the development of city-wide and neighborhood corporations as an experiment in new delivery mechanisms for low-cost housing. We have also encouraged a wide variety of housing services programs through community action agencies. We would, of course , be happy to discuss any proposal you might have, either on an informal basis or on the basis of a formal submission. May I suggest that you contact your local connnunity action agency or other housing groups to see what your next step might be. Thank you for your interest in our program. Richards .

We propose the following as a summary of the philosophy of the Program Committee of the Commission: 1. That the Commission make accessibility one of its prime objectives. 2. · That as far as possible the work of the Comm.is sion be in the area of prevention. 3. That the Commission avoid duplicating any function that is already the province of an e stablished agency or group and that its efforts be c h a nne l e d in the area s of impl e m e nting r athe r than duplication . 4. Tha t t h e p r og ra m of t h e Commission remain fl exible and within t h e capab ilitie s of the C ommission. 5. That the Commiss ion rec o gnize the re s p o n sib ility of a creati ve approach t o solv ing problems of our C o mmuni ty and its re s pon s ibility t o encourage the i nvolve m ent of th e citizens of the entir e City. �6. That the Commission's program include for consideration and possible implementation the suggestions from the citizens themselves. That the Commission then becomes, with the approval of the Mayor and the Board of Aldermen, the spokesman for the City of Atlanta. PROGRAM I The Program Committee proposes the following areas for immediate action (the se areas were included in the ad hoc committee I s r e port as b e ing the most obvious areas for survey of services and facilities): a. Blue Heaven (Location: Decatur Street - Atlanta DeKalb area) b. Cabbage Town (Location: Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill) c. M e chanicsville d. Summe r Hill (Location: Off G e or g i a Avenue , behind the C a pitol) e. Vine City (Location: Vine Street and Magnolia) f. Lighting g. Scotts Crossing (othe r suggestions) h. i. j. and such other areas as may be d e t erm i n e d b y th e Commi ssion o r requested by the neighborhood organizations or individ uals. The purpose of this investi - gation is to make recommendations to the Mayor and t h e Board of A l dermen r e garding the furnishing of necessary services and facilities within the control - 2 - �of the City of Atlanta which shall standardize the services furnished in the above mentioned areas with all the other areas of the City of Atlanta. As a basis for such information and recommendations, the Program Committee urges that this program be given first priority; that the information be obtained by holding public hearings in the suggested areas to which the public, neighborhood organizations and other interested individuals will be invited. We suggest that this be a simultaneous project and that the Commission be set up in teams · and a ss igned to specific areas and that each team designate one member as a secretary for the purpose of filing a joint report to the entire Commission. In areas where there i s not unanimous agreement within the team, we suggest a m inority repo rt also be filed. PROGRAM II For purposes of gaining information we suggest that the following people who a r e concerned with the community relations in the various areas and disciplines be invited to appe a r befo re the entire Commi ssion for the following purposes : a. To outline for t he community their present method of operation. b. To p roject plans for the future. c. To analyze what they consider their greatest problems, and d. To make whatever recommendations they care to to the Community Relations Commi ssion. We suggest the following a r ea s of concern: 1. A meeting of all agencies dealing with community problems. - 3 - �2. EDUCATION - Dr. John Letson, Superintendent of Atlanta Schools 3. EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES - Mr. Charles O. Emmerich - Director of the E. 0. A. Program 4. JOB OPPORTUNITIES within the City Government - Col. Carl Sutherland, Director of Personnel, City of Atlanta 5. RECREATION - Mr. Jack Delius - Director of Parks Department, City of Atlanta 6. HOUSING a. Atlanta Housing Authority, Mr. M. B. Satterfield b.

WELFARE - Mr. Welborn Ellis - Director of Fulton County Welfare Department 9, 10. HEALTH - Fulton County Public Health Department, Dr. James F. Hackney In addition to the above official agencies, we would like to recommend that the Committee that is assigned to work with ministers be asked to select from the churches the significant churches in terms of community program. We think it would be helpful to have such programs explained so that other churches might be encouraged to similar or other community programs. (We are thinking partly in terms of clinics, counseling services, etc . ) - 4 - �TIME TABLE I. Public hearing of concerned citizens from various neighborhoods through. out the City. room #2. 2. Place: Purpose: City Hall - February 16, 7:30 p. m. - Committee to begin to pinpoint problems of the City. Meeting with agencies who are concerned with community relations.

Public meeting in areas suggested by ad hoc committee (committees of not more than three persons to each area) be appointed by the Chairman of the Commission and such meetings begin the first week in March, with area meetings being held simultaneously; that the entire Commission be called into extra session for reports and to formulate recommendation s. 4. That the heads of agencies suggested in Program I I be contacted as to their earliest availabilities for meeting with the Commission. - 5 - �ADDITIONAL PROGRAMS ( FOR DISCUSSION) I.

After a lengthy discussion of prevailing problems and subsequent suggestions for solutions to the problems, the group as sembled decided that a resolution should be passed which would request the Mayor and Aldermanic Board t o establish a human relations office with direc t re spons ibilities t o aid in resolving problems that are prevailing in our city .

Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Re: Volunteers Unlimited Dear Mayor Allen: This is to bring you up to date on the present status of our project to recruit, train and place individual and group volunteers in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Volunteers Unlimited is the name given to the project which is now being sponsored by the Atlanta Chamber of Corrnnerce, EOA, the Junior League of Atlanta, the Corrnnunity Chest, and the Corrnnunity Council. I enclose a copy of a letter from me to Secretary Romney, together with a copy of the Memorandum enclosed with my letter. The Letter and Memorandum are self-explanatory. I attended a meeting in Washington last Thursday and Friday, May 22 and 23, of executive directors and presidents of councils in cities having a population of one million or over. It was well attended. About twenty-five cities were repr esented. At the meeting with Secretary Romney and Mr . Max Fisher, our group first obtained assurance that the Voluntar y Action Program as envisioned by the National Administration is not intended to be a substitute for federal or state funds or programs - but is intended to be a supplement to these programs. We emphasized the fact that the nature of the problems in the cities is such that more federal and state money is r e quired - not less. �Hon. Ivan Allen May 28, 1969 Page Two At the Friday meeting it was pretty obvious that Secretary Romney would like to have gotten into a discussion of the Model City Program. As I am sure you know, the Nixon Administration plans to spread the "Model City" money over areas in the city beyond the boundaries of the neighborhoods now designated. We didn't get into a lengthy discussion but he did mention one thing which would be of interest to you and the people involved in the program in Atlanta. He said that preference in Model City Programs would be given to cities making maximum use of voluntary agencies and volunteers in the total community. It may be helpful to you and those involved in the Model City Program to point out that we have a project for the recruitment and placing of volunteers which is jointly sponsored by strong organizations and has the support of your office. We had a number of outstanding applicants for the job of Executive Director of Volunteers Unlimited. We finally selected Mr. Jack T. Mallory, Jr., who is twenty-eight years old and has had considerable experience with the YMCA and community organization. His employment is effective June 1. The Massell Companies are permitting us to use, without charge, a building on Gordon Street about one-half block from Ashby. This is a building formerly used by the Bank of Georgia. It is directly across the street from a branch of the Atlanta Library and a branch of the Atlanta Federal Savings and Loan Association. We think it is an ideal location and facility. During the next two months most of our time will be devoted to the organization of committees which will be responsible for recruiting, training and placing volunteers. One large committee will begin working with agencies in the accumulation of job de scriptions for volunteers . We still need some help in a number of a reas. We have to do some painting and remodeling of the building. We have to provide office equipment and supplies for our Headquarters. We do not have at this time sufficient funds JONES . BIRD & HOWELL �Hon. Ivan Allen May 28, 1969 Page Three to employ two neighborhood aides which we need in connection with the project. If you or Dan Sweat know of any large corporations which would loan us a young executive for a couple of months, this would be most helpful. We are basically funded for the first year. The next year we are going to have to take care of on the basis of our performance during the first year. However, we are determined to make this project a success. We are most encouraged by the enthusiastic support of the Junior League. As you know, these gals are real movers. We appreciated very much your letter of support and it has been helpful to us. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know. Yours very truly, ~~ Eugene T. Branch ETB : j s Enclosures cc: Mr. Dan Sweat w/Encls. JONES .

Romney Chairman, Cabinet Committee on Voluntary Action c/o Department of Housing and Urban Development 451 Seventh Street, S. W. Washington, D. C. 20024 Dear Secretary Romney: I am Chairman of The Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc. and was among those present at the meeting held in your department on last Friday, May 23. We appreciated very much the opportunity of meeting with you and Mr. Fisher and some of the · members of the staff which has been formed to move forward with the Voluntary Action Program. The proposal and the meeting could not have b een more timely from our standpoint. Our Council and other organizations in the Atlanta area have been working for fourteen months on the organization of a facility to effectively .and efficiently recruit, train and place volunteers. We enthusiastically support the idea proposed by the President as we understand it. I enclose a Memorandum which sets out the procedure which we followed in organizing and funding an agency designed to use individual volunteers and groups to expand , supplement and enrich programs of existing public and private voluntary agencies and to stimulat e the deve lopment of n ew and innovative pr oj ects or programs to solve specific problems in specific areas.

HOWELL �MEMORANDUM May 28, 1969 TO: Honorable George W. Romney Chairman, Cabinet Committee on Voluntary Action FROM: Eugene T. Branch Chairman, The Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc. This is to review briefly the background and present status of a planned volunteer citizens service project in the metropolitan Atlanta area. This area - encompasses five counties in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The project is being spon- sored by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Economic Opportunity Atlanta, the Atlanta Junior League, the Community Chest, and the Community Council of the Atlanta Area, Inc. It also has the strong backing of the Office of the Mayor of the City of Atlanta. The Community Council convened the meetings of the organizations which lead to the formation of the project and the Council now serves as the umbrella organization under which the project is operated. 1. Background. The proposed project for the training and placement of volunteers arose from the realization that in the Atlanta urban area we are not likely to be able to expand services as rapidly as needed unless we effectively tap some presently untapped resources. If we undertook to expand the exist- ing services of public and private agencies in the traditional way, it would be years before we would have sufficient funds and trained personnel to make any serious impact on our problems. s •" 1"" 'l ~ .., �The largest untapped resource appears to be individuals and organizations whith would like to make a contribution. Effic- iently and effectively channeling this resource is not an easy task but it has been done in a number of cities and it was believed Atlanta has a unique opportunity to demonstrate an effective use of volunteers. In the late spring of 1968, we had a meeting of organizations which were being flooded with calls from citizens and groups which wanted "to do something." We met with representa- tives from EOA, the Mayor's Office, the Atlanta Junior League, and the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. From this early meeting, it was decided that we should sponsor a luncheon meeting of organizations which might be helpful in either using or recruiting volunteers. This larger meeting included representation from about seventeen organizations. At that meeting a Steering Committee was formed and has been functioning ever since. 2. Steering Committee Recommendations. The Steering Committee consists of representatives from the Atlanta Junior League, the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, EOA, Corrrrnunity Chest, and the Community Council of Atlanta. From time to time we have also had present representatives from the Women's Chamber of Commerce. The Steering Committee after a number of meetings reached the conclusion that the most desirable procedure was to sponsor a demonstration project to extend over a two, maybe three - year period. The project would be jointly spon~ored by the Junior League , the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, Corrnnunity - 2- �Chest, EOA, and the Connnunity Council. would be "members." Other interested groups Funds for the support of the project would flow through the Community Council and be specifically designated for the Volunteer Service project. . ' I enclose a copy of a docu- ment entitled "A Coordinating Agency For Volunteers" and this sets out the general procedure which will be followed. This was simply an outline document from which we worked and does not purport to be a blueprint for organizing an agency for placing volunteers. In essence, the purpose of the organization is as follows: (a) Recruit and register volunteers and volunteer groups. (b) Screen such individuals and groups for placement. (c) Provide training for volunteers. This would consist of some classroom activity and some on-the j ob training. (d) Provide leadership on the effective use of volunteers and work with agencies and programs in which they would be used. The experience which we have had, and that of volunteer programs in most other cities, illustrates that the most dif ficult part of the job is training agencies to use volunteers effectively. (e) Evaluation. We would provide a procedure by which we would periodically evaluate the using agency and the volunteers. The Steering Committee was divided up into various task forces. One committee reviewed applications for the job of Ex ecutive Director. One committee, with the Atlanta Chamber of Connner ce, sought a suitable location for the operation . The Junior League, in conjunction with a subcommittee, undertook to rec r uit the Cha i rman of the committee s which will be responsible fo r th e var ious func tion s of the agency. It is cont emplated t ha t the pr oj e c t i tself will b e sta ff ed almos t entirely by volunt e ers. I I -3- �. __,_ ~ I One of the most encouraging developments is the express ed desire of the Junior League representatives to support the project not only with money but with a considerable amount of volunteer time by its members. 3. Funding The Project. The enclosed outline of the pro- ject has been revised from time to time. been added as a sponsor. Of course, EOA has Also, we have reached the conclusion that the first, and possibly second, year of the project could be adequately supported by $40,000.00 a year. The Atlanta Junior League has voted to support the project by a contribution of $15,000.00 during the first year and $10,000.00 during the second year. The Atlanta Chamber of Commerce has voted to provide $10,000.00 during the first year. The contribution towards the second year operation has been left open. The Community Chest is contributing $5,000.00 for the first year's operation. Local foundations are providing the balance of the funds. The Community Council has provided some staff assist ance and will continue to do so. EOA has also provided staff and consultant support and has pledged to continue to do so. I • 0 enclose a copy of a letter from Jim Parham dated March 12, 1969 indicating the willingness of EOA to be one of the sponsors of the project. I also enclose a copy . of a letter from Mayor Allen dated April 10, 1969 expressing the City 's interest in the pro ject. We have corfllTlunicated frequently yJith Mr. Dan Sweat in the Mayor's Office, and I am confident that we will be able from /: -4- �time to time to obtain assistance from the City. Mr. Sweat's office has been flooded with people and organizations calling to find out what sort of project or program they could work on and they have not been able to respond as they would wish. 4. Present Status of the Project. named "Volunteers Unlimited." The project has been We have had donated. to us until September of 1970 a building which fits the description set out in the document entitled "A Coordinating Agency For Volunteers." The building has adequate adjacent parking, is just off an expressway, is near the complex of predominately Negro universities in Atlanta, and is easily located. We have employed an Executive Director who is now working on a voluntary basis but goes on our payroll on June 1. The Chairmen of the committees charged with the different responsibilities of the agency have been named ·and are enlisting their committee members. We will spend about two months educating our committees on their functi6ns and getting our building in shape for operation. When we are equipped to recruit, train and place volun~ teers effectively, we will have a concentrated program designed to give full publicity to the purposes of the agency. The agency will b e run by a Board which will encompass r .epr esentation from every segment of our population. / I -5 - �·' . A C.OOIWIN:\TING AGJ::;:-{CY For. VOLU rffEEES Purpose: To _provicle a central point where volunteer activities could be coordinated, devc_loped and orga nizeu so that the vast reservoir. of man and woman powe r who ar~ looking for ways to make constructive, significant contributions to the comn1unity can be utilized. This would be more than the traditional volunteer bureau. It would not only wo rk with existing programs but also develop new areas of service for individua ls and groups an~ be innovative in its approaches. For the most part it would be organize d, administered and operated by volunteers and its functions would vary according to the _group or organization it was working with. Function: 1. It would be a place where agencies can register theirneeds for individual volunteers and group projects. 2. · It would be a place where individuals or groups can register and . become kn0\ m to an agency or program where his capabilities and interests can be u sed to bes t advant age . 1 3. It woyld conduct an initial screening of volunteers to protect the agency from clearly unsuitable applicants, while the agency retains its ri ght to select its own volunteers. · 4. It would offer leadership on the effe ctive use 6f volunt eers. 5. It would provide a framework for communication a mong civic organizations r e garcli_n g their owi1 areas of community participation. 6. It would conduct regular p rograms to educa te the public about project s and problems in the fie ld s of h e a lth, we lf are and enrichment. 7. It ~ould d eve lop challeng in g opportunities for volunt ee r commitme nt. Sponsors: Possible sponso r s could be the following as we ll as othe r int e r e sted o:rgan i zations: 1. . 2. 3. Atlanta Junior League 4. Women ' s Cha mbe r of Commerce Chambe r of Corrm1erce 5; Un ite d Fund Comrnuni ty Council of the Atlanta Are a, Inc. - 1 - �Members hip: Members would be solicited from organizations and agencies that arc possible providers ancl users of volunteers. Location: The ~hysicnl facilities should include the following: l. Office space for a minimum of seven people (four staff and three full -time volunteers). 2. Adequate parking nearby for a minimum of fifty cats. 3. Be in an area that is well lighted, and where staff end volunteers · would feel comfortable when attending meetings at night. 4. A large meeting room in the building or nearby that could be .utilized for training sessions or conference meetings. How It Nay Be Financed: There are various ways in which the volunteer project can be financed and services provided. A · few of these are liste·d as follows: I - l. Community Council of the Atlanta Area Inc. - Technical assistance and assistance in traini~g of neighborhood aides. 2. Junior Leagu~ - Financial support, and volunteers to staff the office and assist project director 3. Chamber of Commerce and Women's Chamber publicity. 4. Foundations - Financial grants 5. Business - Office and meeting spa~es, e9uipment, financial donations 6. United Fund - Financial assistance 7. News media - Publicity.

As the City has grown and the interest and concern of our citizens has increased, it has become more and more difficult to effectively and efficiently utilize volunteers in meeting the needs of the city. It is extremely encouraging to see the efforts being put forth by the Community Council, the Chamber of C o mmerce, the Community Chest and the Atlanta Junior League in developing a vehicle for providing orderly assignment and utilization of volunteer manpower. It is essential that there be a central point wher e by community needs can be catalogued and consolidated and volunteers enlisted and trained to help .fulfill these needs. I believe only through such a coordinated effort can the talents and skills of Atlanta's volunteer citizens be marshalled and utilized to the best advantage of all the people of the city.

However, each member is urged to train in as many skill levels as possible to increase his employment potential. Here are vocational skills taught by Job Corps. AUTOMOTIVE BUILDING SERVICES CLOTHING SERVICES COMPUTER OPERATIONS COSMETOLOGY CONSTRUCTION EDUCATION & SOCIAL SERVICES ELECTRICAL/ ELECTRONICS FOOD SERVICES GRAPHIC ARTS HEALTH SERVICES HEAVY EQUIPMENT LANDSCAPE/ NURSERY MACHINE TRADES OFFICE & CLERICAL OFFICE MACHINE REPAIR RETAIL SALES Here are sample comments received from employers: INLAND STEEL CO., East Chicago, Indiana : Job Corps graduates currently on our rolls have demonstrated good work abilities and habits. They · are most cooperative and industrious, and reflect only credit on their training in the Job Corps. TEXAS INSTRUMENTS, INC., Attleboro, Massachusetts : We have but one regret in hiring John- we wish we hired ten more like him . John is extremely well regarded and mixes very well with his associates. Job Corps is the Office of Economic Opportunity's voluntary program of human renewal and work readiness. To accomplish its purpose , Job Corps seeks lo comp ensate youngsters for a childhood spent in social , economic, and educational deprivation . Job Corps teaches basic reading and mathematics skills to youth who cannot read a simple sentence or solve a second -grade arithmetic problem . Job Corps offers guidance to young men and women who genera Ily have come from broken homes, with little in the way of adult supervision or control. Job Corps offers medical and dental care for its members-the majority of whom have had no previous contact with a doctor or dentist. Job Corps teaches vocational and employment skills to youth who not only have never held jobs, but who also lack the ability to find jobs. Job Corps teaches the importance of respect and responsibility to youth who have become bitter and hostile as a result of their deprivation . Job Corps shows young people that differences and problems are better resolved by democratic processes than by viol ence. Job Corps provides the alternative of productive and responsible citizen~h_ip for thousands who might otherwise have· known continued poverty , illiteracy, unemployment, and delinquency. program 1.

You are doing a very necessary and excellent job . ST. MARGARET HOSPITAL, Kansas City , Kansas : J. is doing quite well. Her job knowledge is good , her relationship with co-workers excellent. She is neat and anxious to cooperate . If you have other trainees like J., I would like to- hire tflem . IBM, San Jose, California : We have employed 23 Job Corps graduates and in general are quite satisfied . We feel that Corpsmen make good employees and have a very good attitude toward their work and learning. NATIONAL RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION, Chicago : The 16 boys we re ceived from Job Corps have all been placed in food service positions in Chicago and suburban areas . All employers, as well as fellow workers, show complete satisfaction with the boys' ability and eagerness to learn . UNI -ROYAL INC ., Joliet, Illinois: Our experience in employing Job Corps graduates has been excellent. They have made steady progress and in some cases received promotions. They have impressed me with their cooperation and willingness to abide by company rules and policies , and their desire to succeed . They have intense loyalty to the Job Corps and show a determination to make good so the road might be easier for other graduates. �vocational skills Job Corps vocational instruction is planned in steps so a Corps member can enter employment after each level of training. However, each member is urged to train in as many skill levels as possible to increase his employment potential. Here are vocational skills taught by Job Corps. AUTOMOTIVE BUILDING SERVICES CLOTHING SERVICES COMPUTER OPERATIONS COSMETOLOGY CONSTRUCTION EDUCATION & SOCIAL SERVICES ELECTRICAL/ ELECTRON I CS FOOD SERVICES GRAPHIC ARTS HEAL TH SERVICES HEAVY EQUIPMENT LANDSCAPE/ NURSERY MACHINE TRADES OFFICE & CLERICAL OFFICE MACHINE REPAIR RETAIL SALES Job Corps is a unique partnership of Federal, state, and local governments, of private enterprise , trade unions, universities, social agencies, and community groups. The 93 Job Corps conservation centers are operated on public lands by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Interior, and by four states. The 28 urban and 3 special centers, located generally at unused military bases or leased private facilities , are operated under contract by 18 large companies , seven universities, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, The Texas Educalional Foundation , Inc., and the Young Women's Christian Association . Job Corps trainees are helped to find jobs by the U. S. Department of Labor, and the state employment services. Two voluntary agencies, Women In Community Service (WICS) and Joint Action for Community Service (JACS), help trainees adjust to community life and stick with their jobs. WICS also recruits for Job Corps, as does the AFL-CIO . 1. Untitled/ LARRY ANGEL/ Honolulu , Hawaii/Vocation: Art 2. Hieroglyphics/ ARTHUR ARNOLD/ Pacific Grove, Californi a Vocation: Forestry 3.

At the 124 Job Corps centers, the program includes : individual tutoring and counseling, both formal and informal; trained staff to supervise and help enrollees 24 hours a day and on weekends; special new self-instructional materials to help enrollees move along at their own speed; modern equipment, donated by business firms, to teach modern vocational skills. who comes to Job Corps? Young men and women between the ages of 16 and 22, who are out of school, unable to find an adequate job, and in need of a change of environment to become useful and productive citizens-these are the young people who come to Job Corps. Six of every 10 come from broken homes; 63 percent from homes where the head of the household was unemployed; 60 percent live in substandard housing; 64 percent have been asked to leave school; 80 percent have not seen a doctor or dentist in 10 years. Only about 60 percent ever helcj a job, full or part-time, and their average annual salary was $639. More than half of the male recruits of draft age are unfit for military serv.ice for educational or health reasons. A youngster entering Job Corps has a reading and math ability of about fifth grade, on the average, even though he or she has completed nine years of school. More than 30 percent of new enrollees cannot read or write. Most enrollees have never slept between sheets, never shared a bedroom with only one other. Some have never had electric lights. Almost all have developed an acute resistance to conventional schooling. For every 10 months spent in Job Corps, the average youngster gains one and one-half grade levels in reading, and almost two grade levels in mathematics. Similar gains are made in vocational training. Job Corps members grow accustomed to early rising, to regular hours, to daily exercise and sports. They learn how to get along with all kinds of people- both in Job Corps, and outside. They develop good work habits and a new sense of responsibility . They find direction, a "way to go." Job Corps is the Office of Economic Opportunity's voluntary program of human renewal and work readiness . To accomplish its purpose, Job Corps seeks to compensate youngsters for a childhood spent in social , economic, and educational deprivation . Job Corps teaches basic reading and mathematics skills to youth who cannot read a simple sentence or solve a second-grade arithmetic problem . Job Corps offers guidance to young men and women who generally have come from broken homes, with little in the way of adult supervision or control. Job Corps offers medical and dental care for its members- the majority of whom have had no previous contact with a doctor or dentist. Job Corps teaches vocational and employment skills to youth who not only have never held jobs, but who also lack the ability to find jobs. Job Corps teaches the importance of respect and responsibility to youth who have become bitter and hostile as a result of their deprivation. Job Corps shows young people that differences and problems are better resolved by democratic processes than by violence. Job Corps provides the alternative of productive and responsible citizenship for thousands who might otherwise have· known continued poverty , illiteracy , unemployment, and delinquency. program what happens in Job Corps? where do they go from Job Corps? In its first three years, Job Corps has touched the lives of 165,000 young people . Otthe 124,000 who have gone through the program , 70 percent are making constructive use of the education and training they received in Job Corps. Over 69,000 have taken jobs, earning an average of $1.70 an hour; 10,600 have gone back to school or on to college; and 8,800 are serving in the armed forces . Among the present employers of Job Corps trainees are Campbell Soup, Western Electric, Chrysler, Ford, Avco, Lockheed , Sears, Honeywell , General Electric, Liberty Mutual, United Air Lines, DuPont, Cessna Aircraft, Continental Baking, Safeway, Burroughs, IBM, ITT, Consolidated Edison, AMPEX, General Motors, Uni-Royal. These paintings are by-products of what many consider the most significant function of Job Corps : setting free the individual's basic ability to learn . They are by Corps members from all over the country, young men and women training for many different kinds of jobs. To become independent and responsible citizens in today's society , Corps members must first learn to understand and appreciate themselves and the world about them . In Job Corps they have this chance through a broad spectrum of learning experiences, including art. An elective activity, Job Corps' art program has helped develop bright new confidence in thousands of young people by giving them their first sense of accomplishment. This exhibition is tangible proof of what can happen when creative and learning capabilities are unlocked . Sixteen of the private organizations which operate Job Corps centers under contract to OEO have made this ~xhibition possible. They are: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Avco Corporation Brunswick Corporation Burroughs Corporation Delta Education Corporation General Learning Corporation International Business Machines Corporation International Telephone & Telegraph c·orporatlon Northern Natural Gas Company Packard Bell Electronics Corporation Philco-Ford Corporation Radio Corporation of America Training Corporation of America U. s. Industries, Inc. Westinghouse Electric Corporation Xerox Corporation �contributions to the nation Even while training, Job Corpsmen are contributing to national betterment. In improving the Nation's forests, parks, and grasslands, they have performed conservation work worth $38,000,000 to the Nation. Corpsmen have built and maintained 4900 miles of roads, thousands of picnic tables, fireplaces and parking spaces. They have developed and improved 76 miles of fishing streams and 16,500 acres of fish and wildlife habitat. They have planted 15,900 acres of trees and shrubs, and improved and reforested 12,800 acres of timber. Forty-four young men at a Job Co,ps center near Oakland, Calif., all found Jobs in the same company last week-as U.S. Army paratroopers. T he 44, nearly all from poor f amilies, volunteered as a unit, and have been assigned to a special platoon at Fort Lewis, W ash.,jor basic training. Probably because of their stint at the Job Corps center, they averaged several points higher than the norm on the induction test. W ithout that added education, said R ecruiting Sergeant Darryl Adkins-himself a veteran paratrooper- only one out of four might have qualified for the airborne elite. -from T I M E, November 3, 1967 In time of disaster and danger, Corpsmen have labored around the clock - fighting fires, restoring flood-damaged areas, assisting in tornado clean up, and conducting search and rescue missions. service to lo~al communities Corpsmen and women also volunteer their leisure time and services in dozens of projects that benefit their host communities. They work with the handicapped, sponsor Little League baseball teams, donate evening time at homes for the aged. Some work with retarded youngsters, others shop for elderly people of the neighborhood. Several women's centers operate nursery schools for local children. Corps members paint ambulances and community recreation centers, construct wheelchair tables for paraplegics at veterans hospitals, build furniture for youngsters enrolled in Head Start,-collect and repair toys for needy children. All Job Corps centers contribute to such public causes as the March of Dimes, the American Red Cross, United Fund, the Muscular Dystrophy Association , United Cerebral Palsy, the Salvation Army. contribution to public education What Job Corps has learned about educating the school dropout is being applied in public school systems across the Nation, with the aim of helping to keep troubled youngsters in school as long as possible. I have virited over 25 Job Corps Centers and know the tremendous value this program is to the under-privileged y outh of our_country. I would like to personally help make this, their "last chance," a success. - Archie M oore, former boxing champion The interchange of teaching methods and materials between Job Corps and the public schools began in the summer of 1966, when 21 teachers from Seattle, Simi Valley(a Los Angeles suburb), Detroit, and Washington, D.C., took up year-long posts as staff members in four Job Corps conservation centers. At year-end, the teachers returned to their school systems to introduce Job Corps methods -and materials in-local classrooms. During the 1967-68 school year, 17 teachers from 11 urban school systems are teaching and learning in Job Corps centers. how to help a Job Corps trainee get a job If you are interested in employing a young man or woman trained by Job Corps, or if you want to help one of these young people find a job_and hold on to it- wnte or call one of the seven Job Corps Regional Offices : Office of Economic Opportunity Great Lakes Region 623 South Wabash Avenue Chicago, Illinois 60605 Telephone : (312) 353-4775 Office of Economic Opportunity Southeast Region 730 Peachtree Street , N.E.

Although it is true that the Office of Economic Opportunity has some money available for research and demonstration programs in housing, none of it has been earmarked for any specific cities. The work done by the National Committee against Discrimination in Housing was undertaken some time ago, before there was any clear idea of what our appropriation for this fiscal year would be. When our appropriation was reduced, it was impossible to fund all programs which had been considered, and no further action was possible on the one you mention. With its limited funds for housing demonstrations, our office has concentrated on the development of city-wide and neighborhood corporations as an experiment in new delivery mechanisms for low-cost housing. We have also encouraged a wide variety of housing services programs through community action agencies. We would, of course , be happy to discuss any proposal you might have, either on an informal basis or on the basis of a formal submission. May I suggest that you contact your local connnunity action agency or other housing groups to see what your next step might be. Thank you for your interest in our program. Richards . Granat Director Housing Programs �

We feel that the time is due, and past due, for some really constructive action to be taken in this area- -action which only the City Government is in a position to implement. At the same time, we want to commend the obvious solicitude with which you and other leaders in Atlanta have grappled with the immediate problems raised by the shooting incident, the personal bravery shown by yourself and the police force, and the rapidity with which the murder suspects were apprehended. It is becoming daily more apparent that meaningful and constant communication among the various factions involved in our city's dilemma is a crucial ingredient to its solution. We believe that the most useful single action which could be taken at this time is the establishment of a Mayor's Aldermanic Council on Human Relations, which would be empowered to call to its meetings not only concerne d citizens in the various private organizations, but also ranking officers in all branches of the City Government. Such a council should have quasiofficial status, and should have the ear of the Mayor and the Alder manic Board at all times . Of the essence in the usefulness of such a Council would be the fact that its recommendations would be taken seriously . 1911 CLIFF VALLEY WAY NE ATLANTA GEORGIA 30329 TEL : 634-5134 �Members of this Congregation, and of our Denomination generally, have worked unceasingly since our beginnings in the field of civil rights and of human wellbeing generally. We have accepted both hard work and danger--as in the case of James Reeb in Selma. We are especially concerned, therefore, that outbreaks of violence and and intransigence on both sides of the issues might jeopardize much that has been won in the cause of better understanding and equality of opportunity. We urge, with all vigor and earnestness, that a major step such as the Mayor's Council suggested, be established immediately, and that leaders of all factions give it their unqualified support. Very truly yours, Raphael B. Levine President c/c Samuel Williams Samuel Mass ell Atlanta Constitution �

However , due to the fact that a quorum was not present, it was agreed to postpone this for a future meeting . The group then discussed the role of the committee and possible ctivities and programs to be accomplished. Some of the suggested programs or improvements included: (1) Alderman Farris suggested an ordinance by the Board of Aldermen prohibiting building of houses on unpaved atre ts. (2) The group discussed a demonstration project whereby a mall area (perhaps a city block) in the di advantaged neighborhood could be completely cl are d and inexpen ive but substantial singl f mily dwellings built back as rental property or as purchase -- �- 2 - property.

The p eopl of th se communiti �- 3 - would then know where to go with their problems and have confidence that their needs will be handled by this office.' Since most of the discussion centered around the probl ems of housing, it was suggested that Federal authoritie s from the Department of Housing and Urban Development be asked to attend the next meeting to explain their programs and the services this department can render in solving this problem. Mrs . Paschall agreed to review the material and information obtained from the U. S. C onference of M a yors and the Civil Rights Commission on the Human Relations C ommissions of other cities and prepare a brief sununary for the memb rs of the committee . The meeting was adjourned at 3: 4 0 p. m . with the next meeting cheduled for Thursday, September 22, 1966, at 2: 30 p . m. �

Atlanta, Georgia 30315 August 1, 1966 The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr. Mayor of the City of Atlanta Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: We, the members of the Citizens Neighborhood Advisory Council of the Sunnnerhill-Mechanicsville area, are deeply concerned about the recent demonstrations reflecting the need for more recreational facilities. We believe that the recommendations proposed by the citiz~ns group convened by Mr. Bennie Smith on Thursday, the 27th of July would be effective steps toward removing the causes of an unrest. We, therefore, go on record in support of the following: I o That the May~r and Board of Aldermen be urged to appoint a Human Relations Commission, with power and a paid staff, for the purpose of acting upon matters which need attention in neighborhoods and that "grass roots" representation be included in the appointments. II. That all leaders be asked to use their influence to suspend demonstrations until the Mayor and Board of Aldermen could act on the recommendation, Monday, August 1, 1966 .

With this in mind - - and with good a t tendance at our meeting on the 17th - - it is probable that we could submit our recommendations to the Mayor on that day, which would give him time to compose his final list for submission to the Board of Aldermen at its next regular meetj.ng on the following Monday (November 21). This means that if you will make a special effort to attend this meeting on the 17th, this could - for all practical purposes - be our last meeting, and we could ... dissolve our ad hoc committee upon the establishment of the permanent commission. . �
