�Allen Pledges to Help
Negroes Get Met Ticl{ets
Atlanta Mayor Ivan Allen has pledged his support to Mrs.
Martin Luther King Jr. in making tickets to· the Metropolitan
Opera Company's performances here next spring available to
Negroes.
Mrs. King, representing the
inter - racial Atlanta Committee
for Cultural Opportunity, . had
sent a lengthy telegram to
Mayor Al1en to "call attention
to some serious problems concerning the Metropolitan Opera
Company's annual season in the ·
city. "
Allen replied by telegram, in
which he said he is " thoroughly
sympathetic with your desire to
provide additional seats at Metropolitan Opera for the Negro
citizens of Atlanta. It- is my understanding that the additional
500 to 600 seats in the new auditorium will be distributed · on
an absolutely fair and equitable
basis and every consideration
given to Negro applicants. I will
support your position and sincerely hope that it will be completely carried out by the Opera
Association."
Mrs. King said Negroes were
excluded from getting season
tickets because white holders
renew their seats y e a r after
year and there is a long waiting
list.
"We are determined," she
said, "not to submit again to
the e x i s ti n g discriminatory
practices of that ·association, regardless of where the Metropolitan Opera performs. We are
confident that many of the Metr opolitan Opera's artists will
join us if necessa ry."

85 Negroes
As Voters
Conslilntion Was hlni,to n Burea u
WASHINGTON-Federal registrars sent to oversee Negro
voter registration in three Georgia counties Monday listed only
85 persons during their first day
of operation, it was reported.
A spokesman for the U.S. Civil
Service Commission, which administer s the operat ion, said
only 84 voters were signed up in
Screven County, one in Ter'!ell
and none in Lee.
By contrast, three Shr eveport,
La., registration offices also
under their first day of federal
supervision Monday showed listings of 4 , 81 ancf 193 voters respectively, the CSC said.
Spokesmen here said they supposed the Georgia totals were
low because many eligible voters were not yet aware of e
opportunities provided through
longer registration hour s.
The registrars, the first sent
to Georgia counties under the
1965 Voting Rights Act, were assigned after the Justice department announced it had received
complaints of discrimination.
The federal supervisors are
stationed in Dawson, Leesburg
and Sylvania. No indication has
been given as to how long they
will remain there.
Rec en t voter registration
drives conducted by the Soi.;thern r egional council resulted in
49 new voters in Terrell County
and another 17'7 in Lee.
Daily totals are not made
available until the following day.

Two Parties,
But No 'System'
NORTHAMPTON, Mass. -Smith College
students, struggling to understand the South,
ask the ancient question: " When will you have
two parties?" To say the question is relative, which it is, or
to propose a general answer, which one cannot, is unsatisfactory
to them.
They wsnt at least a guess as to when the South is going to
organize itself politically like everybody else. The answer may
even be never. But if a Southerner were required to risk a
generali?:ation, perhaps the most sensible way of getting at it
would be this:
Southern Republicans will be wise to offer an alternative; they
apparently cannot win a mere me-too campaign against the
Southern Democrats.
Winthrop Rockefeller moved to the left of a conservative
Democrat and won Arkansas in 1966.
Claude Kirk went to the right of a liberal Democrat and
won Florida.
Conservative Republicans tried to fight a me-too campaign
against conservative.Democrats in Mississip_QJ_, Alabama and Georgia, and lost all three. Georgia almost certain y would have g-one
Republican as Arkansas ilid if a Rockefeller-type candidacy had
been present to gather in the moderate and Negro vote.
All of which brings up the relative aspect of the thing. Party
labels don't really mean as much to the future of the Deep South
states as do the principles that are in competition. An increase -0f
segregationist conservatism in a region already surfeited and
stifled with it can hardly be called a political service to the
South, whether it is the result of one party factionalism or is
sanctified with the shibboleth of "two party system." A way out
of the pa:;t, not a thrust backward into it, is the South's need.
And the Goldwater Republicanism of Mississippi, Alabama
and Georgia-and to some extent South Carolina-offered an echo
of old Democratic practices instead of the choice of something new.
Far from being constructive politically, this right wing challenge merely snuffed out the first glimmerings of moderation
among Deep South Democrats and drove them back to the right
to defend their old base of racism and reaction.
Then which party wil1 risk the first move toward the middle
of the road? Again, it is foolish to generalize: Georgia may be
almost as different from Alabama as Florida is from Arkansas.
Yet it would seem reasonable in Georgia at least for the R publicans to lead the way out of the right hand rut and toward
the center. The Democrats would undoubtedly follow them toward
that higher battleground, since they wete trying to move there
before the Goldwater debacle chased them back to their old base.
The state would benefit greatly by the moderating trend. And
a moderate Republicanism, being known nationally as the more
conservative philosophy anyway, might retain an advantage with
genuine conservatives while freeing itself, as well as the Democratic party, from the destructive business of courting segregationists to the exclusion of moderates and Negroes in the South.

�IGng Says
Picl{eting to
Grow Here
Atlanta Negroes' boycott and
picketing of a shoe store ch'ain
"is going to grow" to include
other Atlanta retail merchants,
Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. predicted Thursday.
Dr. King was among pickets
marching around in front of the
Peachtree store of ThompsonBoland-Lee, a shoe store. With
him on the picket line were
State Sen. Leroy Johnson and
City Alderman Q. V. Williamson.
"We believe that stores tl;lat
sell to Negroes should use Negro
personnel," Dr. King s-aid. " We
want some Negro salesmen up •
on the S"treet floor here."
Oscar Thompson, vice president and manager of the shoe
chain, said that his company
had 25 Negro employes out of
a total employe force of 125.
"My b u s i n e s s is selling
shoes," Thompson said. "I can't
let a bunch of ministers tell me
how to s-ell shoes. We have had
Negro employes for years, but
I'm not about to fire some white employe with 20 or mare ye·ars
experience juS"t to hire a Ne,gro
salesman."
Thompson said that he was
sure his percentage of Nem;o
employes was higher than any
other Atlanta stores.
King complained that Negro
sales people at the shoe store
were "down in the basement"
and not on the main sales floor.
Thompson s-aid that all personnel in the sales force started
"in the basement" and moved
up as their experience warranted.
�Eugene Patterson
MLK: Where
The Action Is?
WASHINGTON -The liberal Washington
Post said Thursday that many who have
listened to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with
respect in the past "will never again accord him the same confidence. He has diminished his usefulness to· his cause, to his
country and to his people. And that is a great tragedy." The Atlanta Negro leader deliberately dumped a hod cf bricks on his
own head when he narrowed his base in the civil r ights movement
to the confines of the Vietnam " peace movement. "
But the civil rights movement as it was practiced nonviolently under Dr. King was in trouble anyway. His demonstrations had won their big battles. The antipoverty progr am he
advocated had been hiring the old militant leaders and moving
them off the streets and into offices where they were invited to
perform instead of protest.
·
A fringe of " black power" advocates stole the stage. For all
their admirable goals of instilling pride of race in the Negro,
their technique was a dangerous reverse demogoguery and a
ready resort to violence.
The riots that ensued were disastrous for the civil rights
movement. After each outburst of lawlessness and vandalism,
white support dwindled, anti-Negro enmities hardened, and civil
rights leaders struggled to minimize the damage with cooling-off
periods that broke the momentum of the movement.
..
Then as the black power racists began expelling whites, wlio
used to make up a big contingent of the nonviolent demonstrations,
the war in Vietnam gave these white youngsters somewhere else
to go.
The same university campuses that supplied manpower and
money for the civil rights movement are preoccupied almost exclusively now with the peace-in-Vietnam protests. That's whef'e
the action is, all of a sudden, for the white kids who have been
told by Stokely Carmichael that the Negro doesn't need them
any more.
Dr. King must have watched this breaking up of a r ational
civil rights movement with deep dismay.
Without questioning his obviously deep-felt convictions about
e Vietnam, one can see that he is now in position to· salvage at
least some of the dissipated following of the civil rights movement, assuming a drastically narrow base is better than no
base at all.
Yet there is disappointment among many who had hop-ed
Dr. King would somehow overcome the obstacles and revitalize
a responsible movement within the civil rights arena itself, and
not !ollow !he bla~k powe~ hotheads int~ the emotional tangle of
foreign policy. This he failed to do. It IS probably right to call
it a tragedy. It now seems likely that the less spectacular but
harder working old organizations like the NAACP and the Urban
Lea~e. wip. have to ta_ke up the burden of new responsibilities if
the CIVIi nghts cause 1s to have continuity hereafter.

J
Negro Humor ls Shown
In 'A Time for Laughter'
At the beginning of "A Time
For Laughter," Harry Be1afonte's production for "ABC
STAGE 67" Thursday, on Channel 11, host Sidney Poitier says,
" There are few things that express the mood of the Negro
better than his humor. Unlike
his music - jazz - which has
been able to break out and move
societies of the world, Negro
humor has stayed home."
f
Paul Jones is
on vacation.
"A Time For Laughter" is an
attempt to bring that humor
into homes where it has never
been seen or heard; to introduce audiences to such classic
comedians as Moms Mabley
-and Pigmeat Markham, to the
kind of Gomedy this show calls
" Ghetto Talk;" to the black
birth of what became white
minstrel shows (" That's ho w
'darkies' was born," Poitier
comments ironically), to the
outspoken wit and satire of the
socio-political commentators of
the generation following after
Mab'ley and Markham.
Producer Belafonte is also
performer Belafonte in "A Time
For Laugher ," displaying his
respect for a vaudeVille tradition that greatly ante-dates him
in a time-honored sketch which
teams him with Pigmeat Markham and guest star Diahann
Carroll.
Godfrey Cambridge, actorturne&-eomedian, also turns
writer in the production. He is
featured with M o m s Mabley
and Broadway star Diana Sands
in a sketch he wrote, satirizing suburban social climbers of
all colors.
George Kirby, whose skills at
mimicry have made h i m a
popufar guest on television variety shows, lays a cast of
seven in a g1ietto barber shop,
using the sharp edge of wit to
outline s e v e n very different
types (in two colors) .
The ghetto talk moves into
two other areas. In a pool hall
we find Redd Foxx, long-time
favorite on the circuit of night
clubs and theaters which play
primarily to Negro audiences
(and lately a guest on afternoon game shows) utilizing his
zest for the language and
rhythms of the "fast - talking
hippie."
In a funeral parlor, young
comedian Richard Pryor unsolemn'ly intones a satirical service that - Hke much of humor's spectrum
would be
equally at home in any color
scheme.

JUne 20, 1967
Mr. Ivan Allen
Mayor- City Of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Ga.
Dear Sir:
I believe in our laws and obide by them, but
for the life of me, I cant understand why the black race is
not included in these lam. Were these laws made for the
mli te race to obide by onl.y? Evidently they were, because
you and the Chief of poilce certainly ofter nothing but
excuses for not doing something to stop this destruction
and danger to the citizens of Atlanta.. Who is going to payfor this damage to properity? We all know, as well as you
and the Chier who is responsible, but nothing is being
done tQ make them pay for the damages caused by them. If
we had the right people in charge, there would be enough
fines and prison centances placed on the responsible ones,
that soon they would run out of money to operate on.
We may have to wait until the next election to
get something done about our laws, and a mayor and chief to
inforce them, but it will be done.
There is such thing as impeachment, and a mave
will be started at an early date to see that this is done,
unless you and the chief quit stalling and do something to
stop this destruction. It I s a very simple job to do. Just
make -ill· our laws apply to all races• Not just the white
race.
I know that you would never have been elected
mayor, if it had not been for the black race. But eaven
they have turned against you now. You do not have now, or
have ever had white friends. Yes you had few white trash
friends. They are lower tan the negro trash. Just look
at the mayor before you, who supportedyou. Next to you,
he was the nearest nothing any city ever had.
You and the chief can do nothing to clear your
name with the white man, but you might clear your consious,
if you have one. I dont think you have or you would never
have doublecrossed the race you were born in to then tumed
black. The black race cant tnist you now. How can you expect it of them?
Yours truly,
Atlantian and White
.American.
