Mr . Charles A . Fitzgerald, President
Tucker M i dget Football Conference , Inc.
P . 0 . Box 67
Tucker, Georgia
Dear Mr . Fitzgerald:
I was very pleased to learn of the p l ans you and Ral ph Long
are making for a football game at Wesley Avenue .
I am familiar with the fine work of Mr. Long and Aaron Watson .
Probably the main reason we have not had any racial disturbances
in J:nat neighborhood is because of the positive program of
parti cipation th t these two men carry out in their community.
I see no problems at all with your bringing a team into the
Wesley area and I would endorse such a commendable attempt
to develop friendship between the races in this manner.
Mr . Dan Sweat, my assistant, has worked with Mr . Long and
Mr . Wat on on other projects and I am sure he would be happy
to work with you if there is anything my office can do to help
make thi project a success .
I am sure that Mr . Swe twill be interested from another standpoint since he lives in your conununity and has a son playing
on the Smoke Rise team. You m y call him at 522-4463,
Ext. 280. His home number is 938-0197.
Congr tulations and good luck with your fine progr m.
Sine rely yours,
Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor
