'‘|in Florida and the closed-door ATLANTA (UPI) — Guber- natorial candidates Howard (Bo) Callaway and Lester Mad- dox exchanged barbs Tuesday night when both addressed a meeting of the Georgia Muni- cipal Association, Callaway, a Republican, ac- cused his Democratic opponent of making wild promises to get himself elected and knowing full well the money would not be available to fulfill the promises, “The old saying that money doesn’t grow on trees apparent. ly hasn't registered with my opponent,’’ Callaway said, The GOP nominee specifical- ly accused Maddox of promis- ing an education group to give 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 He said Maddox also had | promised to triple the normal Lester, Bo Still Exchanging Barbs Both incidents were examples. of ‘Maddox’s irresponsibil- ity,’’ according to Callaway. The republican pledged support most of the major plat forms of the GMA including continuation of direct grants to cities, new sources of local rey- enue and tax relief for home- owners, Barbs Returned Maddox, who addressed the group later, let fly with barbs even more pointed than Calla- way’s. “Nothing but a fool would say he would take politics out of any department,’? Maddox said. ‘He (Callaway) either is a fool or thinks you are.’’ Callaway had pledged to take politics out of the highway de- partment, “Bo Callaway and the bank- ers that control him have climbed down into the gutter of hate,’’ Maddox continued, Then, half joking, Maddox said he had already been some- what successful in his bid for _| charged that he was offered one — | “Weltner has left Con s, Johnson has left the country, Martin Luther King has gone north and I has gone @arlier at Augusta, |! Maddox said an out - of - state building firm offered him $50,- 000 for his ‘political influ- ence.”’ He said the firm--which he refused to name — was inter- ested in contracting with the state. Maddox said he could have picked up $50,000 in cash | in Angusta Tuesday had he agreed to go along with the bribe. Maddox said he refused to meet with the company’s rep- resentatives, It was the second time Mad- dox has claimed offers of large amounts of money.

  • Text: _“Oklahoma’s Greatest Newspaper” - | EUGENE LORTON |: , 1869-1949 Page. 6 Saturday, October 1, 1966 Published Every Weekday Morning and Sunday by World Publishing Company Byron V. Boone, Pres. and Publisher; L. W. McFetrince, V-Pres.; Rogert E. Lorton, Sec.-Treas.; Sip STEEN, Executive Editor -WALTER Biscup, Editor of Editorial Page Put, DESSAUER, Associate Editor N. G. HentHorNE, Jr.; Associate Editor BIBLE THOUGHT The Lord shall guide thee continually.—Isa. 58:11 Sickness In Georgia © TWO MEN in the State of Georgia personify the sickness the civil rights movement has brought to our politi- cal life in 1966. One of course is LESTER Mappox,. the new Democratic nominee for Governor who won last Wednesday's runoff primary with the help of a powerful white-backlash vote. The other is Mayor IvAN ALLEN of | Atlanta, one of the leading civil- rights moderates in the South and a Democrat. He calls Mappox “totally | unqualified” and says his nomination resulted from “ignorance, prejudice, reactionism and the duplicity of many Republican voters.” (In Georgia apparently there is nothing to keep Republicans from voting in a Democratic primary, and i’s believed many of them voted for Mappox in the belief he could be beaten in the November general elec- , tion.) Auten is one of the progressives of Atlanta who have tried to bring reason and goodwill to the problem of race relations, They have made | their City probably the outstanding ; showplace of racial progress in the South. But recently the new radicals fo- - ee ————— mented street riots in Atlanta and villified ALLEN as an enemy -of the Negro when he used police power to break up the fighting. That was a bitter moment for a man who had spent years trying to do constructive work in one of the most sensitive areas of human relationship. _ But that wasn’t the end. It wasn't enough that black power zealots ‘turned on a longtime friend of true civil rights; their fanaticism put fuel in the anti-civil rights political cam- paign of Mappox. So now we see the flames fanned by STOKELY CARMICHAEL and his fol- lowers burning down the structure of progress erected by men like Aten. And Georgia falls backward in race relations with the renomina- tion of an out-and-out segregationist who is best remembered for using a pistol and ax-handles to drive Negroes out of a cafeteria he once operated. It boils down to this: Between the extremists—CARMICHAEL types at one end and the MAppox people at the other—the Ivan ALLENS in Georgia are caught in a frustrating squeeze. They are victims of the new mili- tancy, just as is the cause of civil rights itself, Cian

Weltner. These sentiments feflect the feelings and attitudes of many people in Georgia who salute the Mayor of Atlanta, as well, for his dignified and courageous expression of contempt and disapproval of the symbols of degeneration and hate that vie for power in the Democratic Party of our state. Where, indeed, would We be without men of such direction and independence as Ivan Allen and Charles Weltner. Your statement was so direct, honest and avpropriate that it leave s little to add. But one feels compelled to sy Thank You, Sincerely,

  • Text: Atlanta,Georgia October ),1966 yor Ivan City Hall Atlanta,Georgia Dear Mayor Allan: First we wamt to say how much 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 trouble and hate is about to take over, Oh God,please don'tlet this happen. Mayor Allan, we can't have him in the high office of our beloved State. It is tragic. Please do something to get him out of office,please,please do something. Don't you think that Charles Weltner would consider this,he is such a wonderful person and we would all want him. Please do something about this situation,impeach him or anything to get him out. You know Mayot Allan the Republicians voted for that idiot or he would not have had a chance. Isn't that 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 aufyl thing to happen to our State. Maybe the write in for Govenor would get him out. I beg you Mayor Allan,please do not let him come in.

  • Text: October 3 1966 Dear Mayor Allen, Iam writing simply to say that Iam proud to have you as Mayor of our city. Ihave always supported you, but along with many others, I don't think I realized what kind of man you were until our recent ''riots''. I believe that you really care about Atlanta ina very personal way. The main reason for my writing this though is because of your stand on our "political race'' held last week. Many leaders must have shared your view 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, eo { } . " = ? (_! rs Ao hy f Sy WO Ck Mrs. Guy Q. LeGrand

However, I was astounded to hear you attack him with ridicule in a press conference last night. Mr. Maddox thrives on ridicule. He has gained a great deal of support from misguided sympathy and continued sarcastic attacks on him will serve only to increase his support. Please let us defeat Mr. Maddox on other grounds.

It was good to hear you speak out, unequivocally, concerning the nomination of Lester l.addox. I felt saddened at his nomination: to think thet so many persons would gravitate toward a man who stands for what he professes to stand! Also, I thought it was brave of you to attempt to stop the recent riots in Atlanta by appearing on the scene and publicly exposing yourself to extreme danger by appealing to the crowd from atop a car. I am certain there are many many more persons in this country who feel as 1 do, but who do not write and say so. Keep trying to inject reason and sanity into the situation in Georgia.
