"We're entering the summer.
You are aware of the conditions
last summer, and the unrest,"
McGovern told the club. "You
have a vested interest in eliminating the conditions and. the
federal money that was m a d e
available on an emergency
basis last year is not available
this year."
The new crime commission
official who was an agent of the
Federai Bureau of Investigation
for 26 years, added, "We tend
to think of crime only in terms
of the courts and law enforcement agencies, rather than as a
portrait of the failure of society,
a lack of employment opportunity and education, of di·sease and
misery."
"Every survey I've e\·er read
recognizes crime breeds in depressed areas," he said. "To
eliminate it, we must eliminate
depressed conditions. We must
also have adequate enforcement
by qualified personnel and we
must pay for it. Anything that
is going to bring crime u n d e r
control is going to cost money.
It's a community problem and
every member of the community must give his support-both
services and financial."
He also urged the club members as employers to consider
whether their employment practices should '·arbitrarilv" eliminate all with past crin1inal records and urged them to "become individual crime prevent- .
ers."

the
' 'il!~c.;';•ern 1 p e r m a n ent
metropolitan comm1ss1on that
grew out of the Atlanta Crime
Commission's lengthy study and
report last year, said the City
Parks department will attempt
to operate the play lots out of
the regular budget if no federal funds can be found, but
said that city funds are not
adequate for the program.
He told the Atlanta Kiwanis
Club that Sears Roebuck and
Co. had donated four portable
pools for the summer program,
and urged them to consider financing a $170 filter system for
one of the pools as a club project.
McGovern said that if they
will support the program , there
are enough civic clubs in Atlanta if each took a small project, t~ provide playground equipment for some of the lots and
provide chartered buses for
special trips, such as to the
zoo.
