Recreation September 8, 1967

The Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
City Hall

Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Dear Ivan:

Attached you will find an autographed program of
the Mayor and of the participants of the Atlanta Team
to the United States Youth Games,

You would have been proud of Atlanta's Team for
their behavior, participation, and all of
the events,

Atlanta won fourth place in Track and Field, went
on to the semi-finals in bowling, and placed seventh
in the overall games.

We were faced with real competition, and in my
opinion the teams made a magnificent performance. The
entire program could not have been handled better,

I believe it makes for a wonderful opportunity
for children to meet other children from other cities,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank
you for letting us go.

The games will be held in St. Louis in 1968, and
I certainly hope we will be able to participate,

For your information, also, these games are conducted
at no expense to the City. Old London Foods and the American
Machine and Foundry Company provide the money. Our only
expense is the transportation and uniforms.

I would like to be in a position to invite them to
Atlanta at some future date,

With kindest personal regards and thanking you for
all that you did for us, I am

Yours sincerely,

Viseraia Carmichael

Director of Recreation
