MANUFACTURING CORPORATION Menlo, Ga.30731- 404 862-2302

January 24, 1969

The Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr.
Office of the Mayor
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Mayor Allen:

Knowing of your extreme interest in things good for Atlanta, | am submitting
an Idea for your consideration,

If the proposition seems to you that it has possible merit, | would be happy
for you to suggest a time for me to come to your office and discuss the matter
in detail.

Please understand fully that | do not approach you posing as a philanthropist.
Professional and financial advantages to me personally are also involved.

My idea is, over-simplified, that if money for training purposes is available
from the ''Model Cities'' or ''Economic Opportunity'' programs [n Atlanta, | can
provide 200 to 500 permanent jobs, mostly for women, sewing cotton work gloves.

Further, the operation could be located wherever desirable from your over-all
planning standpoint and, over a period of time, would be completely self-
liquidating financially.

Your investigation would verify that | started this business from scratch in
1951 and we are at present a factor in our industry, nationally, giving steady
jobs to over 500 people.

If you wanted to get more information on the telephone, | can be reached at
this office or at home during the evening, Rome 234-5064.

| would appreciate an Indication of your possible interest at your convenience.
Yours very truly,

“Tew Lo), ae

Roy W. Mann
