Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Sir:

Each time I arn involved in one of Atlanta's now famous traffic
jams on the expressway, I remeraber your vigorous battle to
defeat the Rapid Transit program in the elections last fall. When
I further contemplate the tens of thousands of hours that are lost
daily by irate motorists in Atlanta, I wonder how in clear con-

frustrating traffic situations.

resentative of the people of Atlanta to try to save the one thing

that can stifle Atlanta's growth, and progress toward a brilliant

of your lively interest and suPerb efforts toward making eee aie
ae a Aa etae cities, I thought you should have a copy of this lette

I have addressed to Mr. Millican. Bed Ag eed Cle
