The Honorable Ivan Allen
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen:
This letter is written to aquaint you with a worth while project for
negro boys in the city of Atlanta.
Since January, Mr.Ralph Long, Principal of Wesley School, Mr. Aaron
Watson, Athletic Director of Wesley, and myself have been meeting
making plans for a football program for boys 8 thru 13 year of age
living in the various communities of Atlanta.
King & Spalding Company, has incorporated our group under the name
"Youth Sports Activities of Atlanta, Incorporated 11 , as you can see on
the attached blank letterhe ad.
In meeting with Mr. Long and Mr. Watson and others they have brought
in, I have been impressed by their desire to do for their young people
even though it means taking much of their spare time . I believe in
f ootball as a builde r of character and believe what these me n are doing
is v ery wor th while .
My group in Tucker is also engaged in similar work with our youth and
hav e eleven year s e x p e rience at it . This fall ou'r t wo groups a re
t r y ing to a rr a nge some way to b r ing our two t e ams together in a gester
o f friends h ip. Our t hought i s t o _ start out wi th a game i n t h e Wes l ey
area , with u s bringing o ur group i n a b u s . We want to pro vide a b r i dge ,
s mall in the beg inning , f o r a better und e rstan d i ng between our young
people . I know of n o b e tter way than a thle t ics .

�The Honorable Ivan Allen
Since this would mean bringing 33 white boys into the Wesley area,
we want to make sure we go about this in the right way. I would
appreciate your thoughts on this. Perhaps you could come and speak
to the two groups before the game, right at the field. I truly
believe this is a milestone in good relations between races but,
as I said, don't want to make a mistake as we start out.
If y ou think it advisable we can come down to your office and
discuss this. At any rate I will appreciate your suggestions
and comments.
Very truly yours,
T~~Cc ~
