Mr. Charles A. Fitzgerald, President
Tucker Midget Football Conference, Inc.
P, O. Box 67

Tucker, Georgia

Dear Mr. Fitzgerald:

I was very pleased to learn of the plans you and Ralph 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 that neighborhood is because of the positive program of
participation that 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. Watson 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 this project a success.

Iam sure that Mr. Sweat will be interested from another stand-
point since he lives in your community and has a son playing

on the Smoke Rise team. You may call him at 522-4463,

Ext. 280. His home number is 938-0197.

Congratulations and good luck with yaur fine program.

Sincerely yours,

Ivan Allen, Jr.
