  • 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: October 3 1966 Dear Mayor Allen, I am writing simply to say that I am proud to have you as Mayor of our city. I have always supported you, but along with many others, I don't think I realized what kind of man you we re until our recent "riots". I believe that you really care about Atlanta in a very personal way. The main reason for my writing this though is because of your stand on our "political race" held last week. Many lea de rs must have shared your v iew that it was "deplorable", yet how many said so? Only you and Congressman Weltner, who has given up a lot for his conviction. Again, thank you for being a "strong" leader and for caring about our great city . Sincerely, 7Jfw . vlr rf0/;~cl Mrs. Guy
