'-....... The President is appreciative of your interest in writing him about these events and while it is too early to know about the possibilities for the spring of 1966, it is apparent from the schedule that is developing for the summer that he will be unable to accept the July invitation. Although I do not want to be unduly encouraging about the possibilities for next year, you are welcome to renew the invitation, if you wish, about three months in advance of the date. With the President's thanks and best wishes, Special Ass· Hono rable Ivan Alle n, J r. Mayo r Atlanta , Geo r gia P r esident �

However, big thoughts are a futile exercise in mental gymnastics unless supported with practical follow-through . .. We need the help of all concerned to make certain we have both, for only the thorough execution of this big job in the end will win the day for Atlanta and for the Braves. 1. It is urgent that we get Atlanta into action on season ticket sales. This will take personal contact from the highest levels of the Atlanta business community, directed toward the highest levels of the Atlanta business community, plus efforts at that same level aimed at business lea d e rs in other market cities . 2. We need to start the bal l rolling so that every ad carried in the early part of Opening Week refers to the Braves; every downtown office bui lding takes on the challenge of creating banners; e v ery local theatre enters the act; every school and colle ge hereabouts be comes involve d, as does e v ery t axidriver , e v ery bus driver, every member of the police force .

Plans call for them to see a game, be given personalized tours of the city, and be guests at a superb dinner hosted by Atlanta Newspapers, Incorporated and Jack Tarver. We have already begun working with the national magazines; Look Magazine will be here on assignment right after Washington's Birthday as a first step. We need to get national television, including network news shows. The "Today" Show should broadcast from Atlanta opening day, on the day after, or both. We need more press association series on Atlanta and its team; the hassle with Milwaukee has made this the biggest sports yarn in years. 4. We need to h~ve the cream of Atlanta's business community take on the task of personally inviting the very top leaders of the nation to be their house guests over Opening Day. Every branch of a national firm should have its national president here . game .

Atlanta Braves Opening OM-6 (Summary of Recommendations continued) 5. We need help in pulling our loftiest national political leaders here, and that need goes right to the top. We need all southern governors and many mayors here. 6. We need to get glittering celebrities here, and we shall call on Bill Bartholomay personally to guide and help us on that. We will call on Georgia advertisers who use personalities in their campaigns to have those celebrities here. And of course baseball's o f f i cialdom is a vital part of the program. 7. We need to mount a Mayor's Dinner on the eve of the Big Game which will show the greatest outpouring of Atlanta's elit e --and the nation's well-known figures--that Atlanta has seen since the 1939 premiere of "Gone With The Wind". 8.

Who ever heard of such generosity and spirit on the part of business leaders? It takes Atlanta to put this over. 9. We need to coordina~e with Pittsburgh leaders to get a representative Pittsburgh group here. We need to get plans started as well for the Atlanta leadership to be in New York Friday, April 15, when the Braves open the Mets' home season, and in St. Louis, Thursday, May 12, when the Braves open the new St. Louis stadium. This is the essence of the bold but simple program which we ask Atlanta to support. As we write today, we cannot estimate costs precisely.

The Bell & Stanton public relations organization is charged with working closely with the Chamber, with the Braves, and with all other involved groups and individuals. We must see to the action of each committee. Overall supervision will be the responsibility of the firm's president, Alan Bell, from New York, and of Senior Vice-President George Goodwin from the Atlanta office. The specific Bell & Stanton executive under them will be David Pearson of Atlanta. Already the Chamber has offered to lend the firm extra manpower as evidence of strong support. Extra people as needed will be employed on a temporary basis if the pace builds up too swiftly. In any event, additional staff from the New York Bell & Stanton office , headed by Ex ecutive Vice-President Edward Stanton and b y the Ne w York account executive for "Forward Atlanta , " Margaret Larson, will be closely inv olv ed at all times .

It is only now, after Fulton Superior Court Judge McKenzie has spoken, that it is possible for anyone to be able to go all-out on this. Season tickets should be sold to every business organization in this area, for use of its employees and customers. This sales need comes at a time when the Braves organization must turn its attention more and more to spring training. The community can -- and we suggest, must -- help put across this sales effort. 1. We suggest that Mayor Allen assemble in his office ~ group of lead i n g b u sin essmen to take o v er on this project as they would on any e mergency, for we appro ach crisis when we hav e sold so few season tickets this close to Opening Day of our first Big Le ague season .

The five major bank presidents B. The president of the Sales Executives Association & Marketing If the Mayor agrees, the banks should be asked to use their contact officers, both from the main office and from branches. These officers should contact all corporate customers, urging those customers to buy season tickets to b e used by their e x ecutives, by their employees, and by their customers. The contact officers should take specific ticket orders -- with no money cha nging hands. A senior \ officer in each bank should receive these orders and should relay them to Mr .

As a subpoint, stores are urged to consider tying their sales which start on Monday after Easter to the debut of the team. Why not call the events: "Braves Day Sales?" D. We ask t hat Tucker Wayne work with the Georgia Association of Broadcasters to prepare a special one-minute promotional film for the Opening Day, and these would be made available at no cost tc all TV stations in the entire market area, as well as to as many motion picture theatres as seems feasible (all those in greater Atlanta at least) .

This would be appropriate activity for members of the Junior Chamber to take on_, under direction of the "Forward Atlanta" group at the Chamber.

These would be friends inviting friends, and the guests for the most part would be houseguests. Essentially, we seek to have a significant number of the nation's decision makers in Atlanta, not just for the ball game, but primarily to sample Atlanta's atmosphere in springtime and its spirit in general. To do this properly, we need. help from Lockheed to fly in certain of the guests. Others of course will have their own corporate aircraft or will fly commercially.

This occasion would be far from complete without you and Mrs. joining with us in the festivities that will precede the game and then in witnessing the first of many contests between the Braves and the Pirates. Tuesday evening, April 12, is the date set for the game itself, but the festivities will begin on Monday, 1pril 11. Accordingly, Mrs. Allen and I would very much like for you and Mrs. to be our special guests at the Mayor Is Dinner honoring the Atlanta Braves on Monday evening, April. 11, at the new Marriott Motel. Incidentally, since your city has been one of the great leaders in urban renewal, I think you will be ~ interested to observe that this splendid new hotel represents a $12, 000, 000 example of redevelopment by private enterprise in one of our urban renewal projects. �2 On Tuesday afternoon, at 1:30 o'clock, we would be honored to have you join with us in the great baseball parade for which Atlanta is host. The climax of the festivities will be a program in the stadium at 7 o'clock Tuesday evening just before the game begins. We would be honored to have you j o i n ~ us on this program. Again, I emphasize that the celebration of the advent of major league baseball to Atlanta and the Southeast would be very incomplete without the presence of the Mayor of Pittsburgh and his wife. So I want to repeat how honored we will be to have you and Mrs. as our guests. Complimentary reservations have been made at the Marriott. I am keenly awaiting the word that you will be with us and am looking forward to extending a personal welcome when you land at our airport. Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. �
