Dear Friend:
The Youth Council and several other community agencies are sponsoring a conference on Narcotics and Drug Abuse Among Youth.
The conference will be held on Tuesday, March 18, 1969, 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the
Fulton County Mdeical Academy, 875 \-Jest Peachtree Street, Atlanta, Georgia.
The purpos e of this conference will be to determine some effective and unified
course of a ction by the community to deal with this very serious and increasingly _
dangerous problem.
The conference participants will include a very rich reservoir of experts who will
assist us in improving and accelerating our programs in the areas of education detection and enfor~ement as related to drug abuse among youth,
This conference will be a working conference, and it will be geared particularly
to parents, teachers, youth and youth leaders.
We are therefore inviting and urging you , your staff and any other constituency
of your organization to attend this conference on March 18, 1969, 12:30 p.m.
There is no cost , and a limited amount of free parking is available . Would you
p l ease make yourself a committee of one and make sure that the director and cha irman of your youth organization ( counse lors, teachers, etc.) and some parents and
youth from the community attend this conferen c e .
Can we count on yo u?
Sincerely,
~~

Dear Friend:
As you probably know, each year the City of Atlanta, Economic Oppertunity
Atlanta, Inc., The Community Chest and many other private and public agencies
and organizations sponsor a Youth Opportunity Program.
'rhis program is designed to aid and provide service for all the disadvant~ d
youth in the Atlanta Metropolitan Area.
It has been the practice of the Youth Opportunity Program to discuss and present tentative program plans with President's, Participating Agencies, Churches,
Board of Directors and Youth. In this respect, we feel that any suggestions ,
criticisms and program input you might have will greatly contribute to the sue•
cess of the 1969 Youth Opportunity Program.
We are asking you to attend a meeting of this type and to bring any friends ,
Board members, youth gr.ups and/or representatives that you feel might be.help•
ful to us. The meeting will be held
Thursday. March 13 14:00 P.M. at City

I hope you will be able to attend and bring persons who you feel

As we have reviewed and evaluated the 1968 publicity effort, I ·feel that the
generous resource of Liller, Neal, Battle and Lindsey has not been effectively
and fully utilized. This is especially true of publicizing, promoting and
reporting the various activities to the media for maximum coverage.
We have set up a meeting with Mr. 0. B. Moore, Consultant from Liller, Neal,

procedures for reportihg activities to the various media. The meeti ng will

Dear Jerry:
Attached is a c_o py of a letter which was sent to the V i ce
President regarding the NCAA program.
I think this illustrates the position that I took at the conference
on youth coordinators . That was that while I support the view
of virtually all th youth coordinators that this program was
not handled properly in the beginning. I d o not support the
view that we s hould pass a lot of resolutions condemning the
President or the Vice President or anyone lse in sight as
well s objecting to and fighting the NCAA program.
We simply took the initiativ to m ke s ure we would have a
ignificant input for th program in A tl nta and th t it i m a d

�Dear Mr. Vice President:
The City of Atlanta is happy to participate in the National Summer Youth Program.
It is my understanding that, to date, Morehouse Cmllege is the only Atlanta
college participating in this program.
Mr, John W. Cox , Executive Director of the Youth Council, as well as coordinator for our Youth Opportunity Program in Atlanta, has taken the following action :
1.
contacted all of the NCAA Colleges in Atlanta to encourage them
to participate. So far, only Morehouse College is part icipating .
Emory and Georgia Tech indicated that they could not participate
because of other building and activity programs this summer;
2,
communicated with Coach Forbes, Morehouse's Director, individually,
and discussed Morehouse's Proposal prior to submission. He later
held a meeting with Dr. Forbes involving personnel from the City
of Atlanta Parks and Recreation Department, Economic Opporuunity
Atlanta and the Community Chest. At this meeting , the following
proposed modification and changes were suggested and a greed to
by Dr. Forbe s:
a.
The program would operate from 9:30-1:30 instead of 8:00a,m.-12:00
noon;
b.
The target areas would be the Nash Was hington and the West End
ar eas;
c.
The EOA Center i n the Wes t End and Nash Was hington areas, the
Robin s on Boys Club, the At lant a Girls Club and the Publ i c Housing
Proj e ct s i n these areas would r efer t he partic ipants to t hi s
program;
d.
Bussing would be kept at a minimum 7trans port ation would be used
f or t rips and s uppoF.t f or the on-going program;
e.
A maximum number of poor yout h from the target area will be hired
by the Project;
f.
The college wi l l explore t he possibility of expanding this program if such needs warrant, utilizing other facilities;
g,
Finally, the col lege has agreed to fully coordinate this project
into the total Youth Opportunity Program effort.
We will continue to maintain a working relationship with this program and keep
your representative informed on its progress.
As Mayor of the City of Atlanta, I fully endorse this program and recommend its
funding.

Dear Mayo r Allen:
John Cox has ten dered and the Executive Committee of

as Exe c u t ive Direc tor as o f July 31 , 1969 . John is leaving
t he Yo u th Council to take Frank Thomas' job as Executive
Di rector o f the Butler Street Y.
The Exe c ut ive Committee o f the Yout h Council feels
that Jo hn has served the Council diligently and effective ly
during hi s tenure as Executive Director.
Before attempti ng to r e c r uit a s ucc esso r t o Joh n Cox ,
we wanted · t o a sk you i f you had any sugges tions f o r a suc c es sor t h at we could offer to t he committee in charge of
selecting s uch a person and al s o t o ask you if y our co c eption of the Youth Counci l or of t he job to be fi ll e d
h ad c hanged . As you may r emembe r, there was some talk
las t Fall o f c onsolidati ng the Youth Council with ano the r
grou p such as the Crime Commission o r the Community Re l a t ions Commission . At tha t time , we were anxi ous to get
the Council fun c tio ning and its programs u nderway and d id
not want to get i n volved in a re - exami n ati on o f i ts pur pose s or its place in t he structure of City Gove rnment .
That is s ti ll a fair assessment of the sentiment o f t e
Executive Committee .
Nevertheles s, if changes in the status o f the Coun cil
are contempl a ted, the Exe cutive Committe e fe lt t hat t hese
c hanges should be known to it and taken i nto accoun t in its
process o f recruiting a successor to John Cox .

�THE KENTUCKY YOUTH CONFERENCE
The Kentucky Youth Conference was begun in 1967 by former
Attorney General Robert Matthews to seek among the young people of
Kentucky the leadership necessary to curb Kentucky's juvenile delinquency problem . In 1966 Kentucky got, for the first time, a roughly
accurate look at its juvenile delinquency problem. In that year, the
Attorney General's Office, in cooperation with the Department of
Child Welfare, developed a voluntary and uniform juvenile offense
reporting system . They found the over-all picture bleak, showing
little end in sight to the rising tide of juvenile crime in the state
of Kentucky.
The Kentucky Youth Conference was designed to do something
about this problem. It is based on the theory that y oung people, if
given the opportunity, can themselves develop solutions to the problem
of juvenile delinquency; that their energy, insight, and imagination cannot be overlooked; and that they should seize the l eadership in dealing
with this problem.
These concepts of the Conference became a reality in August
of 1967 and again in August of 1968 when more than 800 high school
age people from a ll parts of Kentucky gathered at Eastern Kentucky
University in Richmond to ask themselves what they could do about
juvenile crime in their local communities. Their discussions,
s timulated by exce llent speakers, programs , and the most comprehensive data on juvenile crime available , sparked many ideas for
local projects . Youth Conference delegates have organized a teen
jury in Henderson; a three - county Central T een Council in northern
Kentucky involving county judges and police judges ; a youth employm e nt servic e in Versailles which, in its first year of operation,
found jobs for s ome e ighty young people in the area; a nd a Boyd
County program which has involved pre-teen children of indigent
parents in the area in picnics and horseback riding . Many such
programs throughout the Commonwe alth have met with such great
success , unprece d e nted c ommunity interes t a nd widespread s upport
tha t the annual Conferen ce will now remain a perm a n e nt ins titution
in Ke ntucky.
l
�Delegates to the Conference have been sponsored in the past by
more than twenty thousand Kentuckians representing corporations, labor
unions, civic clubs, schools, and church organizations. These groups,
along with various other foundations and youth organizations interested
in the development of Kentucky youth and the prevention of juvenile delinquency, lend financial support to the Conference efforts. The Kentucky Youth Conference is now sponsored by the privately financed,
non-profit Kentucky Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Youth Development Foundation of Louisville, Kentucky and has begun a Sustaining
Member Program intended to broaden its financial base, while giving
Kentuckians a chance to participate in its efforts in an important and
essential way.
Throughout the entire state businesses, organizations and
individuals recognize and support the tremendous potential of the
Kentucky Youth Conference, and of Kentucky young people, to mobilize the resources of the state in effective combat against juvenile
delinquency and to explore new areas of constructive citizenship
for the young.

Dear Mayor Allen:
I am presently working as Director of Public Relations
for the Kentucky Youth Conference to be held August 10-13, 1969
at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
I have enclosed more information regarding the history,
goals and accomplishments of the Conference and of the entire
Kentucky Juvenile Delinquency Prevention and Youth Development
Foundation of which it is the heart, hoping that it will present you
with a somewhat clear and informative picture of our past and present
efforts . We are, of course, hoping and planning that this year 's
Conference will be our larg est , most successful and most effective yet and are, therefore, doing all we can to make ourselves
known to as many potential delegates and sponsors as possible.
It is for this reason that I am writing to yo u. Being in a
position of such leadership and influence, I would hope that you,
after reading abo ut the Conference, would see the tremendous imp act
and effect it is capable of having on Kentucky youth and would lend
interest and support toward it with some statement of endorsement
or approval which we might then be able to use in our public relations.
We are very proud of and optimistic about the impressive
results we have seen throughout Kentucky since the birth of the
Conference and the foundation, and we know that you share our concern
and hope that it will remain a permanent institution in Kentucky- - an
opportunity for Kentucky youth to meet to pool thoughts , ideas and
ex periences regarding timely and relevant youth questions and prob -

Re :
Atlanta Youth Council
Dear Mayor Allen:
John Cox has tendered and the Executive Committee of
the Youth Council has accepted his resignation from his job
as Executive Director as of July 31, 1969. John is leaving
the Youth Council to take Frank Thomas' job as Executive
Director of the Butler Street Y.
The Executive Committee of the Youth Council feels
that John has served the Council diligently and effectively
during his tenure as Executive Director.
Before attempting to recruit a successor to John Cox,
we wanted to ask y ou if you had any s uggestions for a s uccessor that we could offer to the committee in charge of
selecting such a person and also to ask y ou if y our conception of the Youth Council or of the job to be filled
had changed. As y ou may remember, there was some talk
last Fall of conso lidating the Youth Council with another
group s uch as the Crime Commission or the Community Relations Commi ssion. At that time, we were anxious to ge t
the Council functioning and i t s pro g rams underwa y and did
not want to ge t involved in a re-examinati o n of its p urposes or its p l ace in the structure o f City Government.
That is still a fair assessment of the sentiment of the
Executive Committee.
Ne v e rthe l e s s , if changes in the status of the Council
are contemplated, the Executive Committee felt that these
changes should be known to it and taken into ac c ount in its
p roce s s of rec ruiting a s ucces s or to John Cox .
Very t r uly y ours ,

Re : Atlanta Children and Yout h Ser v ices Co unc il
Dear Dan :
I appreciate the time whi ch y ou and George Be rry took to sit
down and discuss the activit i es of the Youth Counci l. I want you to have
a summary of the conclusions as a result of the meeti ng and which I will
convey to Lewis ~ nkins , the Acting Dire ctor of the Council , as well as
to the permanent Director of the Council when he is named .
First , I concluded that the supervision of the Executive Director ,
the initiation of Council activities , and the approval of policies and programs
suggested by the Director would continue to come from the Board of Directors
of the Council.
Second , I concluded that the Executive Director of the Council
should be also subject to the direction and supervision of the Mayor ' s Chief
of Staff and should attend staff meetings of Mayor Office personnel and keep
the Chief Administrator in the Mayor ' s Office apprised of what the Council is
doing as well as being available and subject to the supervision and direction
of that person to do special task• assigned by him in the area of children and
youth.
I am not clear how this will be shown on the organization charts, but
I do know that working relationships are more important than organizational
lines of responsibility . I would hope that the result would be that you would
gain a valuable assistant and the Council would gain, a valuable affiliation. Please
let me know if you object to my instructing Lewis @enkins or his successor on
the basis of these conclutlions.

Re : Atlanta Children & Youth Services Council
Dear Lewis :
Duane Beck of Community Counc il has had a series of meetings
with people in the 14th Street Hippy community and one of the results of
the meetings ha been to dramatize the need for a drug education program
in that community . Many of Atlant a ' s young teen-age children come to
that community during the weekends and are exposed to the use of drugs.
Also there are other people who come from outside of Atlanta who are not
knowledgable about the dangers of drugs.
Duane Beck bas asked the Youth Council to undertake a drug education
program in the Hippy community and it is his suggestion that if it is to be
effective it must avoid moralizing over the use of drugs and it must involve
members of the community . Art Auerback:, Telephone Numbers 872-9492. ,
622-0919, i a young m.an in the community who is interested in the project
and who can be of assistance . Bruce Donnelly, a Minister, at Twelfth Gate
Coffee House is also interested in the project.
1 am asking tbat you, as the Acting Director of the Council, make
the establishment of such a program in that community an item of first
priority. It is a logical follow up on the conferences which we had on
drug use and abuse earlier thi spring.
�Mr . Lewis Dinkins

If it is necessary for you to take a staff person and assigning him

letter I am informing Dan Sweat at the Mayor ' s office and the other members of the Executive Committee of the immediacy that this project has
taken on as a result of requests from other agencies in the community.

Dear Mr. Johnson:
Sometime ago the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council submitted
several proposed projects to the Model Cities Program for funding via
Model Cities supplemental funds. Said proposals are: Absenteeism Project; Central Coordination Services for Model Cities Youthi Juvenile
Delinquency Prevention; and, United Youth Outreach.
It is my understanding that the above projects were a part of the total
program submitted to and approved by HUD.
It is my further understanding that Jerry Luxemberger and John Cox appeared before the Executive Cormnittee to review and discuss the projects
at which time questions were raised on the Absenteeism Proi!:_ct and the
others were 11 all right 11 • Later Mr. Luxemberger conferred with Mr. Dan
Sweat to obtain the general position of the Mayor concerning the Youth
Council's Projects. It is my understanding that Mr. Luxemberger was informed that all of the projects were approved by the Mayor e xcept the
Absenteeism Project.
While we understand the broad responsibilities the Model Cities staff
has in finalizing all of the projects submitted by the various agencies
and organizations, the Youth Council Board is unable to ascertain reasons
for the seemingly unusual delay in funding Council's projects.

ctivities

nci • offering in•
�direct services to children and youth in the Metropolitan Area .
The Council serves as the overall coordinating agency for the
city's Youth Opportunity Program . Said Council pulls together
a Metro- Atlanta Youth Opportunity Council consisting of representatives f1>1>m several business , civic, religious, private and
public groups . This Council makes recommendations to the Youth
Council's Board regarding pr ogram pr iorities, d i stribution and
h ours of operation. Such recommendations are made on the basis
of researched and evaluated needs and gaps undertaken by the
Council I s staff •.• in the areas of employment, recreation, education, .a rt, camping, transpo rtati on, volunteers, special events,
social services, special programs and public relations .
For your benefit, I am enclosing a copy of our 1969 Youth Oppor tunity Plan.
It is my strong conviction that youth have a very essential and
important role to play in any community, for youth, in fact, constitu
the citizens of tomorrow.
A big part of the urban problem i8 essentially a youth problem in
terms of hwnan resources and development; and any urban planning must take into con ider tion this very important ingredient.
1 would recommend that youth be intimately involved in any coordinating activities aimed at helping youth.
I would specifically recommend that :
1.
yo~th serve ob the Board of Youth Commie ion;
2.
youth serve in an advisory c pacity to your City Planning
Department;
3.
youth
rv
Education;
4. youth

5.
youth erve
Agency;
6.
youth
rv
in an advisory capacity to your Board of
s con ulta.nts to your Recreation Dep rtin nt;
con ultants to your Public Employm nt
consultants to th
Mayor'
Office .
�The problem of youth unrest is certainly one to be dealt with . This
is not only true in Atlanta, but is the case in every major city in the
nation.
Atlanta's approach to dealing with this problem centers around the
. general lack of services, commitments and interest on the part of
larger communities . In this respect, the Atlanta Youth Council has
been very effective in getting agencies to provide more services on
a need basis; the result being those youth most in need of the services,
receiving it. In addition, the total community has been alerted to
the pressing need for providing adequate and effective services for
all youth in the Metropolitan area .
It is my feeling
and while all of
ful involvement
sary ingredient
that Atlanta has been very successful in this regard
the youth problems have not been solved, the successof the total com.m unity on youth problems is the necesto succeesfully solving these problems;
I hope this brief explanation has been helpful to you and will assist you
in planning and coordinating the various services in your city.
Sincerely yours,
\

our citizens ot tomorrow.
As Mayor of Atlanta, I congr tulate the Youth Council's Board and et ff
for its accompli hmente in the past. I m equally confident that the
future work of the Council will result in even greater eucces •

Re:
Atlanta Youth Council-Drug Education Project
14th Street Area
Dear Duane:
I am presently Acting Chairman of the Atlanta Youth Council, and am
writing you in that capacity.
The Youth Council, at its September meeting, decided that the Drug
Education Project in the 14th Street area was an item which required
further study by the Council and the Interagency Committee on Alcohol and
Drugs before it could commit wholeheartedly to it.
As you know, Lewis Dinkins has been trying to find some space in that
community for housing a clinic sta rted last summer, a nd to date, has
been unable to do so.
We will certainly continue these efforts. Also, Lewis contacted Fulton
County Health Department in efforts to ascertain resources which they
had a vailable for drug educa tion and found tha t they were not substantial, to s ay the least .
_After considerable discussion, the Youth Council Boa rd decided that
any drug educ a tion a ctivity should be , a t present, under the juris diction of the Interagency Committee on Alcohol and Drugs which was
c r eated in cooper ation with your organization .
AN AGENCY OF THE CITY OF ATLANTA
�-2-
Because of its broader scope, the Interagancy Cormnittee, should consider
how such an education project could be handled. For example:
1.
What sources should be used for statements about drugs?
2.
Which authorities should be considered correct?
3.
Can statements be made?
When · these preliminary decisions and guidelines are set by the Interagency Cormnittee, the Youth Council will be in a better position to
set a course pf effective coordinati6n and action for these youth.

Dear Mayor Allen:
There have been several delays which have prevented the Atlanta
Children and Youth Services Council from being able to present
the names of our proposed Chairman and 2 Vice Chairmen to you
until this time. However, we have now secured what we consider an
excellent slate and would like to seek your approval s6 that they
may begin serving as soon as possible. We realize that it is also
necessary for these officers to be approved by the Board of Alder men, but since we have a Board meeting scheduled for Thursday,
December 11, we would appreciate your signifying that they take
office at this time.
Clarence Elsas has agreed to serve as Chairmano Fletcher Coombs,
who has been our treasurer, and DeJongh Franklin have agreed to
serve as Vice Chairmen.
Although you do not need to appoint the
balance of the Executive Committee, we would like for you to know
that they are: Horace Sibley as Secretary, Jerry Luxemburger,
John Cox, and myself, as members - at - large.
Because the terms of these proposed members of the Executive Com mittee have expired, it will also be necessary to re - appoint
Clarence Elsas, DeJongh Franklin, Jerry Luxemburger and Horace
Sibley for another one (i) year term .
John Cox is a Hong the ne w
board members to be appointed and has already been nominated in
this capacity by the Youth Council Board in October .
We a r e ask i ng at this time, only for your indication of approval
before the Board meeting on Thursday , December 11 and will sub mi t the entir e list fo r formal app r oval in the immediate f u tur e o

Dear Bill:
This is to express some very serious concerns regarding the Rodent
Control Program for the City of Atlantao
As Director of this project, I find it extremely difficult to
effect a meaningful program due to internal flaws, inflexibilities
and misconceptions by the various agencies concernedo Perhaps a
little h _i story may be in order o
The Community Development Aide Project was funded by the Department of HEW, such funds being designated ·to the City of Atlanta.
The City of Atlanta, in turn, designated E0A as the agency who will ·
receive such fundso
This does not mean, nor has it ever meant, that
this is an E0A project exclusively or an E0A delegate agency; this
simply means that E0A's responsibility in this project has been
the administrative input necessary for effective program implementation .
The City Sanitation Division also co-sponsor e d this p r oject with
specific responsibilities accepted by them as an equal to E0A,
Atlanta Youth Council and all other sponsors and co-sponsors.
Most of the agencies participating in this project have been fle x i ble enough to make sufficient input and provide sufficient re sources to move the project effectively at this point in time o
However, some of us are still laboring under long - range and irrele vant concepts which tend to hamper and render ineffective any
progress in this area.

Transmittal of Final Documents
Youth Opportunity Program Prepared by
Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council
Not to exceed $45,000
We are transmitting herewith the final documents developed by
the Atlanta Children and Youth Services Council for the Youth
Opportunity Program. This was included . as part of the Atlanta
Community Improvement Program budg~t for 1968 in Amenclatory
Application #2.
We have been requested to relay several requests of the Atlanta
Children and Youth Ser vices Council relative to continuing the
Youth Opportunity Program.
1.
That the Council be allowed continued use of those
federal funds approved in Amendatory Application {t2,
which have not been completely used to this point.
In other words, in the approved budget period from
February 21, 1968 to February 21, 1969, only $21,385
of the ori g inal $30,000 have been used for this
project, leaving a residual of $8,615 in federal funds .
..-·

Mr, John T. Edmunds

2.
That the Council's original scope of services
as sho\-m in Arnend a tory Application ff2 be
reaffirmed and extended in time for 1969 by
HUD. This action would be in lieu of the
Council having to submit a new scop:? of
ser vices in another Amendatory Application for
1969, and
3.
In addition to the abo ve, the Council requests
additio~al federal funds from HUD for the Youth
Opportunity Progr am for 1969 in t he amount of
$30,000. The Council again would provide the
necessary $15,000 in local non-cash contributions.
We would appreciate your review a nd concurrence in the abo~e
requests.

Dear Collier:
Re:
Your letter to John T. Edmunds of February 25, 1969
This is to request that you transfer the $8, 615 remaining in Amendatory
Application #2 of the Community Improvement Program to the Atlanta
Children and Youth Services Council.
It was the inte nt of the Pre sid e nt's Council on Youth Opportunity that
the CRP in HUD b e used simply as a conduit to provide funds to city
youth agencies for summer planning and programming. There was no
intent to require local CRP (CIP) agencies to justify the use of these
funds as a part of the normal CRP program activities. This is also
the understanding of John Edmunds.
I see no reason w hy w e should not transfer the rema1n1ng funds from the
1968 approv al to the Youth Council immediately so they w_ill b e able to
continue their present activities without interruption.
Mr. E dmunds has informe d me th a t the $30, 000 for 1969 YOP activiti e s
has been set aside by HUD in Washington for Atlanta's use. He will let
us know shortly if your lette r can serve as th e 1969 application.
