Dear Mr. Keating:
A good many people ask me what the difference is between the
Urban Coalition and the new National Alliance of Businessmen,
recently e stablished under the leadership of Henry Ford II.
I usually r e spond by emphasizing the two most obvious differences:
1.
The Alliance is concerned solely with jobs while
the Coalition is concerned with the whole range
of urban problems.
2.
The Alli a nc e i s strictly a bu s ine ssma n's venture
while we include mayors, union leaders, religious
and minority group leaders.
But more important than the diff e r e nces are the ways the Alli a nc e
a nd Coa lition c a n work tog e th er .
I h a v e discu ssed th a t qu e stion
with He n ry Ford II, a nd with Mr . Leo Beeb e who i s on l e ave fr om
the Ford Motor Company to give full time direction to the Alliance .
Mr. Gerard Phillippe, Cha irman of th e Board of Ge neral Electric
a nd Co-Cha irma n of the Coalition's Ta sk Force on Priva t e Emp loyme nt, joine d me for th e t a lk with Mr. Beebe .
We a rrive d a t f ull a gre eme nt c oncerning t h e re lation ship b e t ween
the Alliance and the Coa lition . All parties to the c onvers a t i on
a gr eed that th e r e is a great er pot ent ial for meeting ou r common
obj e c tives i n th e employment s phe r e i f our re s pective pro grams
are carried ou t in a c omp l ementary fashion. We pl e dged full
suppo rt to th e NAB effo r t .

It is through local community leadership that both the NAB
and the Urban Coalition see their respective objectives
being accomplished. The NAB has designated a local chairman in each of fifty urban areas.
It is possible that the local NAB chairman for y our city is
already a member of your group.
If not, I urge that you
invite his active participation in .your efforts, and explore
with him ways in which the Coalition can be suppo~tive of
his efforts on behalf of the Alliance.
The NAB cha irma n in y our community is Mr. Dona ld C. Day ton,
Chairman of the Board, The Dayton Corporation, 700 Nicollet
Mall, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55402.
I look forward to our working together.

Dear Mr. Sweat:
A good many people ask me what the difference is between the
Urban Coalition and the new National Alliance of Businessmen,
recently established under the leadership of Henry Ford II.
I usually respond by emphasizing the two most obvious differences:
1.
The Alliance is concerned solely with jobs while the
Coalition is concerned with the whole range of urban
problems.
2.
The Alliance is strictly a businessman's venture while
we include mayors, union leaders, religious and minority
group leaders.
But more important than the differences are the ways the Alliance
and Coalition can work together.
I have discussed that question
with Henry Ford II, and with Mr. Leo Beebe who is on leave
from the Ford Motor Company to give full time direction to the
Alliance. Mr. Gerard Phillippe, Chairman of the Board of
Gener al Electric and co-chairman of the Coalition's Task Force
on Private Employment, joined me for the talk with Mr. Beebe .
We arrived at full agreement concerning the relationship between
the Alliance and the Coalition . All parties to the conversation
agreed that there is a greater potential for meeting our common
objectives in the employment sphere if our respective programs
are carried out in a complementary fashion . We pledged full
support to the NAB effort.
