Atlanta , Georgia
Dear
Mr.
Delius:
At the public hearing held on February 16 by the new Community Relations
Commission, a del egation of young people from the Vine City area presented
a petition wit h 202 signatures and a strong plea for help in keeping in
operation the Recreation Center at 141 Walnut Street, staffed by Mr.
Eddi e Murphey, who I understand has been paid by EOA funds .
I kno , the.t you are aware of the need in this area and of the urgeney
of this request, and also that you are familiar with any resources beyond
the immediate budget of your department. Is there any fay in which the
Commission can be of help 1n obt ai ning &dditional help , for example , through
the Federal Executive Board, which I understand is interested in youth
programs in Atlanta? Also , I have heard from a representative of the
Trinity Presbyterian Church, who was at the hearing and thinks a group
of churches might be able to help with salary for a recreation worker.
I have urged her (Mrs . F. Levering Neely) to contact you and work with
your department to formulate any plane .
Thie was one ot the most urgent needs brought to the Commission and I
would like to be able to make some report abo·.i.t it at the Cotlllllission
meeting on Friday, February 24, 1967 at 1:30 o' clock P • •
Sincerely,
