McClellan congressional Democrats; and
the Allen Treadway*-Robert Taft-Charles
Halleck congressional Republicans."
These are not mere party wings, claims
Burns; their differences are institutional
and ideological. The power fulcrum of
the presidential parties is the national
convention , where they dominate rankand-file delegates. "The Robert T afts and
the Lyndon Johnsons usually do not win
at Chicago or Philadelphia. " The Electoral College compels the presidential parties to "cater to the urban masses and
their liberal dogmas ." For leadership, they
draw from the ranks of big-city lawyers,
Eastern fin ancial executives, academicians
( Republican examples: Elihu Root , Henry Stimson , John Foster Dulles, Douglas
Dillon ) . These parties are generall y internationalist , favor activist government,
are concerned with broad " way-of-life"
issues .
.
The congressional parties, on the other
hand , use their control of legislative machinery to block the presidential parties.
They draw their leadership from the
small towns, concentrate mainly on breadand-butter economic issues. Many Congressmen are from districts with little
competition ( Burns contends that a mere
125 of the 435 House districts are even
reasonably competitive ), gain powerful
seniority advantages over Congressm~n
from swing districts who ideologically incline towa rd the presidential parties.
Among Democrats cited by Burns as
presidential _party members: New York's
Emanuel Celler, Rhode I sland 's John
Fogarty, California's Chet Holifield ;
among Republicans: New Jersey's Senator Clifford Case and New Yo rk's Senator
J acob Javi ts. John Kennedy, says Burns ,
shifted to the presidential pa rty while
still in the Senate.
Tantalizing Question. The res ulting
deadlock , writes Burns, can and should
be broken-by helping the presidential
parties swallow their· congressional counterparts. To bring this about, he urges
elimination of the seniority system in
Congress , reapportionm ent of gerrymandered districts,t uniform elec tion laws
for the Senate , House and presidency ,
mass dues-paying memberships for the
parties. "It is better that a lot of people
give a little money than that a few give
a lot. "
The rewards for such reorganization
of the parties, Burns a rgues, would be

imm ense. "The great task of the presidential party is to forge a new majo rity
organized down to the wards and precincts , towns and villages and effective
in Congress as well as in the executive
branch. Whether this task will be accomplished by the presidential Democrats
under John F. Kennedy, or by the president ial Republicans under someone like
Rockefeller, is one of the tantalizing questions of the future ."
Tantalizing it certainly is. But is it
reali stic? After all , one of Burns's favorites, Franklin Roosevelt , tried hard
to swallow up the Democratic congressional party-and got bloodied up m
the a ttempt.
tantalizingly close to a white neighborhood called Cascade Heights, where homes
range from $20,000 to a few at $50,000.
Block-Busting. Both Negroes and
whites acted badly in the events that led
up to the barrier between Collier Heights
and Cascade H eights. Negro real estate
brokers used block-busting techniques to
try to buy homes in the Pey ton-Utoy subdivision of Cascade Heights . They falsely
told white residents that their neighbors
had put their homes up for sale and conspicuously drove Negro clients through
the area on Sunday to frighten white
owners. A white real estate man th.reatened to sell his home and some lots to
Negroes in order to get a higher price
from white buyers in the area ; he actually ended up signing contracts with both a
white owners' group and a Negro . Since
WAYN E WILSON, LEVIT ON -A TLANTA
MAYOR ALLEN
A le sso n unlearned.
ATLA N TA ' S WALL
THE SOUTH
Divided City
It was in Berlin that the tragic and
dramatic lesson of what happens to a divided city came home to m e, and if I
could make you see it as I saw it, you
would share with m e my feeling that Atlant a must not be a city divided .
In his inaugural speech last yea r, Atlanta's Mayor Ivan Allen Jr. thus warned
his fe llow citizens of the effects of the
Berlin Wall , which he had recently viewed.
But las t wee k Atlanta itself was di vided
by a pair of 2-ft.-10-in .-high steel-andwood barri cades set up by the city to
prevent Negroes from mo ving into a white
neighbo rh ood .
Atlanta 's white-Negro relationships
have Jong been considered among the best
in the South. But the city's 200,960 Negroes (39 .9 % of the population ) a re hard
pressed for Jiving room. They live on
24 .6 % of the total land zoned for residential purposes, are largely confi ned to a
black belt running north west to southeast through the heart of the city . In this
belt, one of the best districts is Collier
Heights, in north west Atlanta. The main
trouble with Collier Heights is that it is
Jul y, it has been impossible to sell a house
in Peyton-Utoy to a white buyer, and
white owners we re panicked by the threat
to their property values.
Virgil Copeland , president of the Southwest Citizens Association , a group of
homeo wners in Cascade Heights, finally
went to Mayor Allen and suggested closing off two roads that run between the
N egro and white areas to prevent encroachments by Negroes and act as a psychological stimulant to white buyers. Allen called in Negro leaders to discuss the
possibility of erecting barriers. In return,
the city would rezone 250 ac res for Negro
residential use. Understandably , the Negroes protested.
Into Court. Mayor Allen turned the
matte r ove r to the board of aldermen,
which voted to erec t the barriers. At 7
the fo llowing morning , workmen were on
P eyton and H arlan roads driving I beams
into the pavement. The Negroes of Atla nta, represented by a new All-Citizens
Committee composed of most Negro organizations in the city, refused to deal
with the city un til the barriers come
down. Negroes have lost one su it in court
to have the ba rri ers torn down , but a further test is pending before superior court
in Atlanta . Last week the board of aldermen considered a resolution to remove
the barriers-and voted it down IO to 3.

Boards Stands Firm
The entire free world has assailed the "Wall" built by the
Russians and Communists of East Berlin along the East and West
Berlin border. Shortly after Atlanta Mayor Ivan Allen was elected
mayor of our city, primarily due to the crucial Negro vote , he
visited Berlin. Mr. A llen condemned the "Berlin Wall." Now
just a year after the Mayor's election, a proposal was pre sented
by the Board of Aldermen attributed to Mayor Allen and others
which brings a "Berlin Wall" to Atlanta, as they attempt to
close or "Wall-in" several c ity streets. The proposa l to close
these streets (Peyton and Harland) is a vicious scheme to provide
a "buffer" in an effort to block the expans ion of the Negro
community.
The Negro community which is already nearly
"strangled" from the point of land holdings by various schemes
arid "gentlemen agreements," Negroes comprise 39%of Atlanta's
population, .but ho ld only 16% of the land.
The Empire Real Estate, one of the most effective organization
in the Negro community has taken the lead in fighting this proposal. We recognize the special business and commercial interest of the real estate group. However. we feel that the Empire
Real Estate Board is rendering at the same time a valuable
service in protecting the basic rights of the entire Negro comm unity. We strongly support the action of the Empire Real Estate
Board in this controversy. We urge all citizens to get behind
this fight, and if possible attend the public hearing scheduled
for December 13, 1962.
we t.htn\< Ulat Mayor Allen is potentially a great mayor, dedicated primarily to leading Atlanta to greater heights in commerce
and culture. It appears that Mayor Allen is being poorly advised
on issues of direct importance to the Negr:o community, and he
is treading "demagogue road." Many forget thattheU.S. Supreme
Court outlawed "restricted covenants " many years before the
1954 School Decision. American citizens of Peyton Road have
negotiated contracts to sell their property to other U.S. citizens.
We cannot "stomach" a physical "wal:l" used to restrict
our housing expansion. The tactics of Governor Barnett of Mississippi and his band are raw and unsophisticated. Negroes in
Mississippi do not have the ballot. The tactics of Mayor Allen
and his Peyton Road band are sophisticated, but "the tunes we
hear are the same."
Atlanta is suppose to be a progressive city with an enlightened.
Negro community. If these streets are. closed more streets will
be closed. More doors will be closed to our youth. Too many
streets and doors of opportunity are closed to us already.
We stand firmly against the "buffer" scheme and call for the
withdrawal of the proposal which if approved would be a serious
step backward for Atlanta as well as the Negro community.

This challenge, being made to the AFL-CIO leadership, c an have Ear-reachmg affects, The

challenge 1t 1s hurling has taken courage and conviction. An intra-family battle is shaping up.

The recent review of discrimination within the ranks of labor unions, which has resulted in
an open forum on the issue~ involved, carries with it unprecedented significance.
In short, the NAA C:, with la~or secretary Herbert Hill taking the leadership, has called upon
the AFL-CIO Executive Council to forsake its patronizing attitude and give full membership
privileges to its Negro brothers.
The debate took on major proportions when George Meany opened a blistering attack against
the NAACP position before the National American Labor Conference convention during the
past week.
Detroit's TULC, with Robert Battle and Horace Sheffield fast emerging as the leaders of the
aggressive forces in behalf of full rights for Negroes in the ranks of labor on the national scene,
stood steadfast in behalf of the NAACP's position, in the face of the half-hearted attitudes of
other labor stalwarts.

Greater Atlanta Counc .1,
Atlanta is indebted to the Greater Atlanta Council On Human
Relations . This week the organization brought Associate White
Hous e P res s Secretary, Andrew Hatcher, to Atlanta to address
the 1962 Annual Meeting Of the Council. Mr Hatcher's appear ance
s er ved as an ins piration to those who heard him and as a recognitfon of the 1 importance of the work of such organization as the
Council in improving hum an relations among Americans.
The Greate r A tlanta Council on Human Relations has operated
in the fie lds of E mployment, Education, Public F acilities, Rec r e ation, Arts , Churches and in general has given support to all
efforts to open more doors to all the Citizens of Al anta.
T ypical of its pr ogram is its wor k with the Negro trans fer
s tudents. Last year individ.u al me mbers of The Counc il ke pt in
close touch with the nine students. This year, e ven though the
number of transfer students increased to forty-one , The Council
practically alone among community groups has continued its
effor ts to provide friends hip, encouragement and s uppor t to these
students and their families. Individual arrangements for tutoring
have been made for those students who r equested such help.
Council representat ives by visiting s c hools and visiting in the
homes of · the stude nts have gained an ins ight into the process
of school des egr egation in terms of the individuals involved
which will be he lpful in the future. C:uch activities are be st
done outside the spot- light of publ1·ci·ty, but they should be noted
as part of the recor d of the community.

It is time that we come to recognize that it is within the r anks of labor that much of the cr usade
fo: full rights for all citiz~ns mustbe waged. The N,A ACP recognizes ~i~~ Th~ TULC recognizes
this. The AFL-CIO, which has spoken so strongly in fa vor of full citizenship r ights and which
has depended so greatly on the support of its Negro membership, must come to r ecognize this.
The TULC,, in a strongly worded statement to the A FL-CIO Executive Council, points out
to George Meany, its president: "You and your fellow l abor leaders can thunder• threaten, pick
up your treasury and go home. • • the fight of the Negro worker for total absolute equality in the
l abor movement will go on."
In thes e wor ds , a s tand has been take n that must gain added respect for the leade r s in this
fight. The Ni.ACP at the local and national le vel has rece ived .s Qbs tantial fir!ancial s uppor t from
the AFL-CIO, In m any areas union officials are serving as board members on branch chapters
and have endorsed the f:md r aising campaign.
.
The TULC, in strong language, is telling labor leaders that the child-par e nt r e l ations hip with the
f,iegro worker is forever finished." This brings this r e l ationship into a totally d iffer ent light.
De spite labor leader s meeting in Washington to sign a non- bias pact with Vice President Lyndon
Johns on, chairm an of the President's Fair Employment Commission, a l arge segment of the
nation's Negro leadership is saying there is yet a gap between "A FL-CIO promise and AFL-CIO
perfor m ance. "

because Weltner decided "if
Gibson is on the program, I
won't speak."
Acco~ding to Leonard, nintyfive percent of the club's membership was unaware of what
was going on in that they were
already seated at the banquet
table awaiting the start of the
program.
Warren Cochran, director of
the Butler Steet YMCA and exofficio member of the Y's Men
Club, is said to have advised
the new congressman against
appearing on the s ame program
with. Gibson. Cochran claimed to
have been "put on the spot
since he had secured Weltner
as a speaker.
According to witnesses, Welmer argued that since a white
reactionary ne ighborhood paper
had charged that he was involved
in the r ecent shake-ups at the
pos t office, it would not be "politically wise" for him to appear on the program with Gibson.
"I abhor the whole situation
said Le onar d , " but though I
voiced my dissent I was outvoted and told that the decision had already been m ade."
" I was throughly disappointed in Weltner . I thought he was

over the announced changes in

suggested that Mr. Gibson and

be to replace postmaster B.F.
Sanders with a Negro Postmaster, as a payoff for the Negro
vote for Weltner.

EDUCATION -IN
THE NEWS
BY
MABLE SANFORD LEWIS
To educate is to instruct, America is concerned about education in ANY of its many aspects. The Civil Defense Educational
Classes should be attended by at least one adult for each family.
If one is to m ake any attempt at survival, one must be
instructed what to do, when to do
it and how to do it. The development of intercontinental
missiles with theromonuclear
warheads has forced strategic
planning for the protection of
all human beings.
Could you qualify for an Award, "Home Preparedness?"
if one was given for answers
to the following questions?
Could you answer by saying
"I MERIT A CIVIL DEFENSE
HOME
PREPAREDNESS AWARD BECAUSE I - 1. Know
the warning signals and what

HAPPEN HERE - ANY TIME ANY DAY.
As we all know, P r esident
Kennedy assigned respons ibility for civil defense to the
Department of Defense by Executive Order No. 10952, dated
July 20, 196L
This ass ignment has r esulted
in the preparation of hundreds
of qua1*{ied school teachers to
instruct classes dealing with
ever y phase of P ERSONAL
PREP ARDNESS IN THE NUCLEAR AGE.
Contact your school principal; he will give you inform atlon pertaining to at;DClas s

items on the need for preparation for civil defense, which is
likely to be with us for a long
time, and we must suppress the
temptation to reach out hastily
for short-term solutions. One of
the booklets circulated · by the
Department of .Defense reads
"There is no panacea for protection from nuclear attack •.
In a major attack upon our country, millions of people would
be killed.
There appears to
be no practical program that
would avoid large-scale loss of
life. But an effective program
of civil defense could save the
lives of millions who would not

shelters and· related preparations, for example, could greatly reduce the number of .casu2alties."
President Kennedy, speaking
on July 25, 1961, put it this
way: "In the event of attack,
the lives of those families which
are not hit in the nuclear blast
and fire can still be saved if
they can be warned to take shelter and if that shelter ls available. We owe that kind of insurance to our families and to
our country."
The P r e sident was talking about shelter from r adio lkttve
fallout. The blast, heat, and
fire of a nuclear explosion
are apa llingly destructive. But
radioactive fallout could spr ead
ove,- thousands of square miles,
covering a much gre ate r area
than the area endangered by
fire and blast. Fallout would
be a pote ntial killer of millions
of unprotected per sons, but it
also is a hazard that individuals and c ommunities can prepare for through reasonable
pr ograms and actions. A fall out shelte r pr ogram is one of
these.

shock.
Mrs. Lizzie Robinson, mother of the woman., stated that
at about 2:30 A.M. November
22, 1962 Mable went outside
to the outhouse. When she returned she was very weak: and
seemed to be in a state of
shock. She further stated! that
her daughter was bleeding profusely. The mother took her
to Grady Hospital where it was
detected that she had given
birth .to an infant. After Miss
Jones was admitted to the hospital, her mother said she returned home and with the assistance of relatives began the
search for the infant. As a
result the baby was found.
She stated that she immediately called police who placed
ber daughter under a "bold
knowing right from wrong. Adding to Mrs. Robinson's troubles
is the facts that she is a Diabetic and lost her mother
through death a week ago. She
states that her every moment is
spent caring for her own child-
ren plus the two children of
her jailed daughter who is unmarried. Mrs. Robinson told
the Inquirer that she does not
know what will happen to her
daughter as she doesn't know
"where to turn" and has no
money to obtain legal defense
for her daughter.
Many neighbors agree with
Mrs. Robinson that Mable did
not intentionally kill her baby.
They feel that she just didn't
realize what was happening and
that she should be given some
sort of mental treatment and not
be tried for murder.

The Atlanta Newspapers have
c ited the action of the Mayor

agree, and are in sympathy
with the Negro expansionproblem , even though it h as beea
gr eatly magnified . H owever,
they have ye t t o cite the real
reasons which pr ompted these
road closings. We agree, and
are in sympathy with the Negro e xpansion problem , even
though it has been greatly
ma gnified, However . we do not
feel that the proper sol ution
to their problem is enc r oachment into an established allwhite community. The only
equitable answer we feel, is
to

Toe gradual downgrading of
Thanksgiving to a commercial adjunct of the Christmas
season worries and infuriates
a host of citizens who believe that the uniquenes s of
Thanksgiving is being lost in

Correspondents from all
over the nation note what I had
already observed in New
Yor k -- that Thanksgiving.decorations in stores and public places are a thing of the
pas t .
The re is no time -- or
room -- for Thanksgiving decor and observations when the
Christmas season begins on
Nov. 1. The troubled burden
of many le tters is that we as
a nation are overlooking a holiday designed to give thanks
for the lavish bounty God has
bestowed upon us .
I am delighted that so many
persons took me seriously
when I wrote:

women. They are the real
movers and shakers in matters of this kind. If the women' s clubs in every community would get behind a move
to celebrate Thanksgiving in
the old spirit, which began to
fade 25 years ago, they could
turn the tide .
Let t he PTAs plan a r eal
observance of Thanksgiving in
the schools . Let the women's organizations bring pressure to bear on merchants
to decorate their stores in
mid - November NOT for
Christmas but for Thanksgiving , as they once did. Acommittee , r epresenting all the
women's clubs in any town,
that called upon merchants
with such a request would bear
weight, and no mistake!
Let the ladies, who do the
vast majority of Chris tmas
shopping in this country, tell
merc hants that ther e is plenty
of time for Christmas decorations and Christmas spirit
after Thanksgiving has been
properly celebrated.

News
BY RICHARD l'FIT'.
The month of January is
shaping up as a bi~ one for
everyone at Therrell. Four
very noteworthy events are
on the calendar fort his period.
Probably one of the least
liked but nonetheless most
important happenings at the
present time is semester final
exams. The semester finals
determine what progress a
student is making in each of
his subjects. The testings
will be conducted on Thursday, Friday , and Monday, January 10th, 11th, and 14th.
Next of all, January hails
the start of regular season
basketball competition. The
Panther Varsity Cagers having taken a win only from
Roosevelt are really hustling.
The Pantherenes are presently showing everybody that the
Red n' Black knows how to do
it. After romping Lakeshore
and then dropping one to College Park, they bounced back
to gun down Grady, Fulton,
Bass, and North Fulton.
Also included for sometime
in middle January will be the
annual language fair. This
spotlights bits of culture from
many different countries. All
three foreign languages taught
at Therrell plus English will
be showcased at the fair. Anyone who would like to loan ·
the language dept. an article
for the show should contact
Mrs. Mary Jane Price., who
teaches French at Therrell
and is chairman of the show.

but "we must pres_s on to make
rapid transit a prime goal and
follow a plan through to accomplishment." A comprehensive engineering study of
r apid transit for the Metropolitan Atlanta area has just
been completed.
6. As a result of a steppedup work program , it is anticipated that the downtown Expressway c;onnector as well as
the airport connector will be
finished before the end of 1963 .
7. Funds must be found to let
contracts for the east-west
Expressway from Lucile Avenue to the r iver enroute to
Douglasville .
The completion of this segment will
open up the entire west section of Atlanta, and will eliminate the most hazardous
traffic area in Georgia."
8. The urban renewal program in Atlanta must be expanded.
9. A vigorous traffic law
enforcement program during
the last eight months of 1962
gave Atlanta the" best and safest driving in recent years. "
As of April I, the record
showed 30 traffic deaths as
compared with 13 in the same
period of 1961. But in the last
eight months Atlanta had 11
fewer fatalities, 244 fewer
injuries and 205 fewer property dama ge accidents than
in the s ame period of 1961 .
Stringent traffic la w enforcement will be continued.
10. Atlanta needs a ' ' sound
plan" fo r ' the issuance of liquor licenses.

A public service of the National

Singer Rosemary Clooney
has been a recognized celebrity for many years -- but
it took a scar to get special
attention from her five children.
Miss Clooney, who'll make
her TV dramatic debut in The
Losers" on · NBC-TV's "The
Dick Powell Show" Tuesday,
Jan. 15, confessed to co-stars
Lee Marvin and Keenan Wynn
that her children were never
impressed by the fact that
mom was a star.
But in "The Losers " Rosemary plays a farmgirl who has
never known love because she
thinks the scar on her face
makes her repulsive to men.
The scar, which was built"
onto her face , is made of glue,
rubber and -grease paint, One
night during the filming of the
comedy-drama she went home
without removing her makeup,
and when the kids spotted the
':lcar they thought it was great.
"I've been singing songs for
years," says Rosemary, "and
my children couldn 't have
cared less -- but when they

It is the natural decomposition of the urine in the diaper
by certain bacteria that results in the foundation of
ammonia , a powerful skin
irritant. The wet diaper also
seems to emphasize the presence of any traces of irritating soap and detergent
which have not been completely r insed away after washing.
It also seems to be a suitable environment for the skinirritating bacteria that have
survived the diaper's washing because washing is not
sterilizing.
Most doctors as well as the.
American Medical As·s ociation are agreed that the processing of diapers by a professional diaper service is
far more effective in restra ining the growth of ammonia-'

"JANUARY 1963 -- ROUNDTABLE"
One of our Scouting resoli.i:..
tions for the New Year should
be to resolve to attend each
monthly roundtable.
We can't give our Units the
best program if we don(t get
the program ourselves. A
good many Scouters, both volunteer and professional, give
of their time and talent to provide our programs and to interpret
these
programs
through the roundtable. Let's
show our appreciation and loyalty by attending our round
tables each· month,
"1910 to 1963"
THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY
brings
SCOUT BIR1HDAY
week. What is your unit going to do about it?
Some Units have an annual
affair of some kind, some have
a Family Nite, some have Pot
Luck Suppers. I know of at
least one Cub Pack that has
an annual Blue and Golc;I banquet.
Some Units put up window
display, some have Father and
Son camps.
What are you going to do?
I know of one Unit that will
have an Open House display of
subjects related to the Merit
Badges.
All of our Units should attend
church as a unit. The uniform should be proudly worn
during Scout Week.
So------let's have all units
do a little something extra
for Scout Week 1963.

I. It is a sad but true fact
that the "Physical Fitness"

scouts. Two scouts that I know
of are stopped cold ·on this
Merit Badge, the only thing
holding them up on the Eagle Rank.
One of these scouts is doing something about it . he asked for and received forChristmas a set of bar bells and he
is using them.
Some units
are incorporating in the weekly programs a portion of Physical Fitness. ltwouldn'thurt

it will show some results and
maybe get our scouts into the
habit. S,h all we try it?

Dear Mr . Chesnutt:.
Thank y0-u very much fo-r your letter expressing your
vie s on th-e action taken by the City of Atlanta as a

Th e Honorable Iv an Allen , Mayor

City Hall
Atlanta 3, Georgia
Dear Mayo r Allen ;
I am writing to comme nd yo u fo r yo ur for t hright leaders h ip at
t he alde r man i c board mee t ing on Mond ay, March 4 conerni ng the resolu t i ons of alderman Farris . I fe el it i s nec es s ary t hat definite
ac tion be taken in the area of Negro -White rel a tions and it appears
t o me the five resol ut i ons should help to establish bet t er communi c ation between the races and enable diffic ul t problems to be
resolved .
I am particularly glad to see your immediate re s ponse to Judge
~hitmar'·s ruling by removing t h e barri cades on Peyton and Har l an roads .
I felt they were harmf u l t o the general feeli ng of pers ons j_mmediately
involved and not in t he best int erests of Atlanta as a who le.
I would strongly endorse the study to be made by the City Planning
department in the hope that additional \ and may be made available f)r
housing within the City . If the statistics I have seen are correct,
they show a proportionately small land area available for Negroes,
and I would encourage th~ Addermanic Board to make more housing land
open for Negro building .
Finally, it has come to my attention that there is some concern
as to whether or not tile City will open its swimm ing pools this summer,
especially if they are noc segregated . Let me strongly urge you to
keep the pools open to all who would desire to use them. I have been
proud to see Atlanta handle the schools, colleges, movies, and lunch
counters as the racial bars have fallen; and I think we could also
handle any situation which might arise at the pools. Caution and
planning would be essential to carrying this out, but I am confident
that the people of Atlanta would accept with understanding your leadership at this point.
My wife joins me in expressing the sentiment of this letter.
Sincerely,
J>l»\_ ~

�Mr. Ralph Moore
Chairman of the
Committee on Appeal for Human Rights
Atlanta University
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mr. Moore:
May I acknowledge receipt of your wire of December 22, 1962 which reads
as follows:
The Students of Atlanta University feel as if you have made a great mistake
1n supporting the establishment of an Atlanta wall acrossPey-ton and Harlan Roads.
In reply to a request of the All Citizens Committee on Better Citizens Planning,
we ovill supply 175 picketers per day for the Westend business area. We will
also stage several mass demonstrations at the Atlanta City Hall with no less than
1500 students. This action will focus the eyes of the world on the Atlanta City Wall.
We do not want Atlanta to have this type of publicity. Therefore we encourage you to
remove the wall and save the good image of Atlanta while there is still time."
First, this is to advise you that at the request of Mr. Virkgil Copeland,
President of the Southwest Civic Association, I have asked reyresentatives of the
following four groups to form a citizens committee to discuss the problems
confa,onting the Peyton-Forest, Harlan Road area situation.
Mr. Q. V. Williamson
has advised me that the citizens Committee of Better Plannning will represent
him in his capacity as Co-chairman of the Atlanta Negro Voters League.
I would
thank that any action prior to the deliberations of this committee and its recommendations
would be precipitious and harmful to our best efforts .
Second, I would like for the students of Atlanta University to have f ull knowledge
aind acquaint themselves with the overall problem and with the complete record to
date which is as follows:
The Peyton - Harlan Road problem is the
52nd area or
street to undergo nei~hborhood expansion, penetration or encorachment since the
first of the year .
The record is almost flawless insofar as the protection of the
rights of the Negro citizen is concerned.
I am enclosing a list of the 51 str eets on
�which this problem has bean handled to the complete satisfaction of the Negro
Community to date this year.
I hope that the students with t h eir ability to
analyze factual conditions will study carefully this record, and I would hope that
they would express their complete satisfaction and accord with the record of this
administration.
I am certain that the matter having been handled so as to protect the rights
of all persons in the first fifty-one instances wou ld raise the question o f w h y it is
not b e i ng handled the same w ay in the Peyton-Harlan Road in s tance .
again, can be factual and «a:m definite.
The a ns w er ,
The Peyton Road incident, consisting mainly
of Fielding Lane agitation, is an a r tificial, unnatural condition created by unscrupulous
pa rti es, both w hite and Ne g ro w ho have attempte d through une t hical, di s loya l and
false misrepresentations to panic the residents o f an established community .
To pr event thi s con dition, I ha ve pre v iously worke d w ith the Empir e R e al
Es t a t e B oa rd a n d a citizen s
committee compose d o f the W est end B u s i nessmen' s
association and the E m pire Real Estate Board.
In spite o f a previous record o f
excellent c ooperation, from thes e two bodie s, i t wa s impos s i ble to pr event this
arti fica l bargining of land to be stoppe d .
May I invit e your a ttention to t h e fact that the closing of P e yton and H arland
Roa d s is in i nconvenience to m o stly whi t e c i t izens a nd p r actically n o N egro cit izens.
It do es not pr event access or egress into any area of town, nor does it limit any
right s of the ixJm:.oix individual citizen fr o m purcha s e o r s a l e or oth er fundamenta l
liberties.
It has merel y served as a warning to unscrupulous real estate deal ers that
Atlanta will not tol erate under the g uise of " race d escrimination" the d estruc tion of
fundamental val ues amongst any of its citizens .
-2-
�I would hope that you would study this problem carefully and I want to
as sure you that if there is any additional information you desire that I will be glad
to supply it.
The record as outlined above shows that the rights of all citizens have been
protected without question in 51 out of 52 instances and now there is a question mark
as to the 52nd instance.
Atlanta's reputation has been built by those who have
carried out the aforegone record.
It is my sincere hope that the students of
Atlanta University will not destroy this record by any unusual demontrations at
this time.
Should you ignore the aboe request and feel that you must picket for the sake
of picketing, then b e assured that the rights of the indiv idual in picketing will be
zelously guarded by the law enforcement body of this city.
Should you wish to
picket the city hall for the purpose of National publicity, then, if you will let me
know, I will be g l ad to receive you on the city hall steps at an appropriate time.
I
iv
hope you will tell the students of Atlanta University that our record
is outstanding and that I hope they will not destroy it with any unnecessary or overt
action.

May I acknowledge receipt of your telegram. I am enclosing
my veto message which I believe you will find self- explanatory.
I am also enclosing a small drawing which will prove to you
that you have been misled in believing that thi s would assist
in stopping Negro encroachment . On the other hand , it would
aggravate the encroachment which could immediately come right
on down Peyton Road. Study this carefully and you will find
that what I say is correct.
Again, I repeat that I will be glad to work with any group or

Dear Friends,
I amt king the liberty of addressing you collectively
due to the press of time.
I have been advised by the State Department that
approximately $700.00 of American and foreign
currency which was unidentifiable, was recovered
from the air crash at Orly Air Base.
1/
Normally such funds are deposited by the General
Accounting Office into the United States Treasury.
However , due to the circumstances involved, it is the
feeling of - the American Embassy in Paris that these
funds should be used as a memorial to the Atlantians
who lost their lives in that crash. It has been suggested
that this money be contributed to the Atlanta Art Association Memorial Fund.
I would appreciate hearing from you as to the distribution you wish made and if the suggestion of the Art
Association Fund is agreeable, l will be pleased to
ask the Embassy to appropriate the $700,00 to this
worthy cause,
Sincerely yours ,
Ivan Allen, Jr.

Dear Friends :
All miscellaneous personal effects picked up at the scene of
the Paris air crash and not otherwise identified have been
collected and sent to the City of Atlanta.
They have asked the City to assist in giving an opportunity
to the families to identify and claim these items, and the
City is glad to help in any way that it can.
These items will be at the Carnegie Library in Atlanta from
October 22nd to October 26th during the hours of 10:00 A. M.
to 2:00 P. M. You can enter the library in the Forsyth
Street entrance, and the articles will be in Room A-114. We
would be glad for you to come by at your convenience and
identify any objects that you can. Items identified will be
tagged and held until October 26th as above. After that time,
if there are no other claimants, the item will be delivered to
the claimant upon a proper receipt being given therefor .
This matter is being handled by Herbert T. Jenkins, Chief of
Police, and Edwin L. Sterne, Associate City Attorney. If
you have a question about any of this, please call either of
them. Chief Jenkins is at the Police Station and his telephone
number is 522-7363. Mr. Sterne is in the Trust Company of

Congratulations and many thanks for the splendid reports coming
in on the new plegdges to the Friendship Club. Already some
departments have reported 100% participation on the schedules
suggested . This shows a fine attitude and fine executive ability
by the heads of these successful departments and their employees .
In every instance where the department head has set the example
and personally presented the program to his employees , the
results have been outstanding . This is a challenge that cannot be
delegated.
Reports of successful departments indicate that the department
heads and their top salaried employees first met and got behind
the program. After ·that, it was not difficult to get other employees
to follow the good example set .
Special recognition is due the following departments:
Comptroller
Fire
General Court
Municipal Auditorium
Personnel
Police
Purchasing
Traffic Engineering
I feel certain that all of the other departments will make equally
fine reports when they have completed their solicitations. Everybody wants to carry his share, so let's get the job done by
November 1st if possible. If more time is needed, however,
delay your report. It is more important to achieve success in
this effort than it is to meet a deadline.
Sincerely,

I would like to express my appre ciation to you for the stand you

p olitical future.But this only proves you are ri ght in so doing.
This minority group seems to want to take tha t whi ch they have not
earned.We have the right to question the motive of those who are
sponsoring such movements.
Mr. Allen where are those red blooded Americans who in the past
would stand and be counted for tha t which is rig ht? I hold no h a tred
in my heart for any man .I beleave every man should strive to earn
the respect or social standing he feels he is due from his fellowman.
I belea ve in America to day every man has the op p ortunity to earn
t he respe ct o f his fellowman. Being seg reg ated is no excuse for him
not taking advantag e of this opp ortunity.
The crime statistics of our city prov e tha t we c an not afford even
token integration untill we are abl e to help thes e people sol ve atleast
part of their mora l probl ems .
It seems t& me tha t it is g oing to take courage ous God fearing

Dear Mayor Allen:
During the recent campaign for Mayor of the City of Atlanta, the
only signs I observed in the Cascade and Audubon Forest Subdivisions
in support of your candidacy: were in my front yard and that of my
good friend and neighbor, Bill Floyd. Today, I bel ieve there would
be a solid wall of signs supporting you in any future political
aspiration you might undertake.
The entire Southwest section of Atlanta is well aware of your
courage, and that of the Aldermatic Boards in approving the erection of the barricades on Peyton and Harlan Roads . While this may
not be the ultimate answer in saving our homes: and one of the
finest sections of Atlanta from block busting tactics: it seems
the only solution at this time.
I express the sentiments of every resident of our community, when I
convey a most heartfelt THANK YOU for your interest: and the stand
you have taken in our behalf.
Let me wish for you a New Year of good health and even greater accomplishments in your desire to see Atlanta grow and prosper in an

City Hal l
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor Allen :
Thank you mos t sincerely f or the recent ac tion which you
t ook in blocking c ertain s treets in s outhwes t Atlanta t o
s erve a s a 11buffer" between the negroes and whites .
For quite some time the negroes have been a liability and
nuisance to the City of Atlanta . However, unfortunately, due
to the steady increase of their population and the ability of
some groups of people to 19purchase" their vote and other
groups to make a dec ision for each and every one of them,
their political strength throughout Georgia is becoming more
and more a burden upon our society. To this end, the future
for us not only means ultimate deterioration of the breeding
of our own white race, but it means that the negro leaders
today are affecting National politics, and in the future will
gain control over the white race. I feel strongly about this,
in view of the number situation, whereby the negroes are
outnumbering whites in many areas of our country. I think a
study should be made in every State, in every City to
determine the percentage of negroes in comparison to the whites.
The percentage so far as Atlanta is concerned will probably
surprise us. Naturally, this enables those who seek office to
have the benefit of this vote. The only answer that I can
think of is to continue to extend the city limits of Atlanta
so as to include more white citizens' votes, in view of the
fact that the white population is being forced into the
suburbs.
�rr -Page 2
Also, I think it would be a good idea to select a certain
area of the City of Atlanta and "zone", so to speak, it
colored. This would mean that the negro could not try to
integrate the white sect i ons. If they would be satis fied
with one section of town, this would be fine - however, as
you are aware, they wish to acquire only one ot.· two houses
in each section, so as to cause more turmoil.
I think the politicians of this City and of Georgia should
begin to think of the future; that is, the problem which we
are going to have with the overpopulation negro situation.
The negro who contributes nothing to society, culture or
our economy, is gaining steadfast control in politics and
our personal lives. It is not only our task to fight today's
problems, but to look ahead and see what we can do about the
future problem of the negroes and how they will affect the
nation. The breed itself has cast a burden upon our taxes,
and integration will certainly cause our own white race to
fall. I also think it would be interesting to know how many
negroes pass the white barrier every year .
I am sure a study of the negro situation would be expensive
fo r A~ranta, and it should be done on a national level. I
think a committee of the best educators - scientist, a
historian, financial experts, economist, etc . should be
appointed to make a study of the problem and to come up with
a solution. Surely, the government should understand that
one ruling cannot possibly suit itself to certain locations.
This committee should be the Justices of the Supreme Court that is, not a committee of legal representatives, but a
committee of educators who are studying our problem and who
have knowledge of the history of this country. In time, the
negro situation is enough to cause more than turmoil in our
country, more than opportunity for foreign interference, but
the breed speaks for itself - actionwise -, and revolution
could be the future of this country.
These are my feelings, and why I think you, a leader and
politician, have certainly taken a firm stand in this one
City problem to show those of us who are not to be called
segregationists (that is not the word), but rather those of
us who work hard to improve ourselves and to contribute a
little something towards the improvement of mankind, leaving
something of ourselves which will be an asset to life itself ,
�Page 3
and never forgetting that our children will be left after us
to seek an answer to the problems which have existed during
our own lifetime. Surely our purpose and debt to life is
not to live richly - but to live well.
Thank you for showing us that you are working "for" the
improvements necessary towards maintaining justice in this
area.
Yours very truly,
~

Dear Mr. Mayor:
As one of your long time admirers and supporters, as well as a
proud citizen of Atlanta for some 50 years, I feel it incumbent
upon me to drop you a note concerning Atlanta's "Image" which I
found on a recent trip to Florida from which I returned on New
Year 1 s Day. I was there at the time the National radio and
television connnentators reported on the "Buffer Wall" set up in
Atlanta.
Wh ile I realize that my information concerning the events which
lead to this action come only from newspaper reports, and while
making no claims to knowing what is best in solving this and
other similar problems in race relations, I can report without
equivocation that this action has caused the "Image" of Atl anta
to suffer enormously in the minds of the people with 'Whom I came
in contact during a ten day period.
For the first time in a great many years I fo und myself on the
defensive with relationship to actions of "my town" and I mus t
say I found it very unpleasant. While I have not always been able
to feel proud of the actions of our State Government, I have not
found it necessary to "explain", with embarrassment, action that
our "C ity Fathers" have taken. I have always in the past felt that
the spirit was positive; a spirit where progress was being made.
In this situation, I must say that whatever the mer its of the
actiori taken, the action itself appears to me a negative one and
not in keeping with the spirit so often pronounced by our beloved
Mayor Emeritus, 11 Bill" Hartsfield: 11 We don 1 t have time to hate in
Atlanta - - - We 1re too busy making progress " .
I trust this letter wil l be received in the spirit in which it is
being written - that of sincere concern, because of a deep love
for Atlanta, its history and its f uture.
My best wishes to you for a healthy, happy and progressive 1963.
Sincer~ly and 2
ternal~y yours,

Dear Mr . Mayor :
I n a way the matter I am referring to is none of my business, but in
another way I feel a responsibility because I am a citizen of Greater Atlanta
and have been working in Georgia since January 1929 in the interest of Christian citizenship with the youth of all races . Further , I am advised that my
l eadership of the l aymen 1 s committee whic~ developed the Laymen 1 s Manifest o
in connection with the desegration of Atlanta Schools.which took considerable
time, was definitely helpful.
Mrs , Rohrer and I deeply regret the fact that a barricade was built
across Peyton ?.oad, knowing there was marked resistanc especially from one
group , and that before the objecting group was asked to confer about it . We
are convinc d that any fair minded person would admit that such procedure is
unfair- slap down the opponent and then tell him, let ' s talk about it . Why
not talk first?
If only there ere some way that the barrica~ could disappear into
thin air, conference bet een the two groups immediately concerned could proceed On
much more amicable basis than can be possible with it remaining up
unless the objecting group possesses much more~hristian forebearance and consideration than is possessed by most of us .
Why the haste?
We hope and pray you and your associates will find ways to solve the
difficulty without further offending or humiliating the objecting group.
Since~ely. y ~

Thia i s another infamous Wall, almc:e t as disgraceful, at leas t

How cockeyed can you people get, in Georgia! Bow long do y,ou
really believe that you're going to keep Negroes from their rightful
civil rights in these desperate dayaf
To begin with, your lous y barrier will crash when the Courts
have time to act, likaa boz: of ttinder. You are making a laughingstock of the American Dream and the pretellsiona of free Americana
in the far reaches of the earth. Thia new segregation WALL was discussed for over an hour on REL D, radio, Dallas yester~ afternoon.
in the program COMMEm and if aver· Georgians were rediculed, it was
then, and pr operly so. It was a great r adio forum program.

A tlant a. :But your objecti ve i B doomed tofll ultimate fai lure. It

Dear Ivan:
Being a self appointed, ear to the ground, pulse taker, poll
gatherer for you, I thought you might be interested in some of
the reactions I have had to your position of strength 'on the
P eyton Road problem.
I know nothing about the background involved here, but you have certainly made points with everybody from my barber to my business associates by this solid
position which you have taken in connection with this racial problem.
It seems to be the general concensus of opinion of those that I
have discussed this with that it is al right to be first in a liberal
approach to race relations in Atlanta, but it is something else
when you have the possibility of being first with a real bloody race
riot in the South.
I certainly hope that you will continue your
position of not being pushed around by any group, whether it be
minority or majority.
You should certainly be proud Ivan of your first year in office and
I am looking forward to many more successful years of your political
office holding and not necessarily just at City Hall.
Very truly yours,

Dear Mr. Mayor:
I would join with my neighbors in the Peyton Road .. Utoy Forest Community
in requesting that you use your influence and office in persuading Atlanta Negro
real estate brokers to not solicit or accept listings for the sale of properties in
this neighborhood.
As you are aware all of us are white and members of the Caucasian race and
nearly all own our homes which represent our accumulated savings.
I personally am a developer and have built and sold many of the fine homes in
our neighborhood. I now am holding for sale one dwelling and 15 vacant lots on
which I propose to build houses for sale.
Needless to say, the purchases of near--by homes by Negroes have disturbed our
neighbors and have influenced _prospective white· purchasers to not buy in this
neighborhood.
Any help that you can render to assist us in our efforts and desire to preserve
the character of our neighborhood, by zoning or otherwise, will be appreciated.

Dear Mayor Allen :
Pursuant to your request that I outline the sequences
of events necessary t o accomplish the proposals set for t h
by the Citizens of Peyton - Utoy Forest Community, the following comments are submitted :
1.
The plan, as submitted, contemplates making available
250 acres for development for residential purposes
for Negroes . This would require the rezoning of at
least a major part of the tract marked (3) which
consists of approximately ninety (90) acres, presently
zoned for M-2 (Industrial) purposes .
It would appear that at this time the Zoning Connnittee
should be apprised of the necessity of the rezoning
of the subject tract and possibly a few other minor
zoning changes that will be necessary in order to
determine their feeling toward this proposal and the
plan in general.
2.
The next step would appear to confer with the owners
of tracts 1, 2 and 3 , to determine their willingness
to cooperate with the general plan.
3.
Determine who and in what manner properties indicated
in green, which will provide the buffer areas, will be
dedicated or acquired.
4.
Determine the exact position that Harlan Road and Peyton
Road will be closed so as to insure that the purposes
of the plan will be accomplished.
5.
Accomplish necessary rezonings.

Sid Avery just called and said that it is his understanding that Foster Eugene Bennett
has sold his property at 483 Fielding Lane, S. W. (in Peyton Forrest) to Dr.
Clinton Warner, a Negro (who presently lives at 2491 Dale Creek Drive, N. W.)
That there have been quite a few threatening calls to Bennett who is moving
to a house he owns on Ghix Columbia Drive in Decatur.
Sid Avery said he is going to call Capt. Little and alert him of the impending
dangers because of this.
. and Avery is requesting that you "take immediate
action to see that Dr. Warner" does not move in" because there will be trouble.
I told
NHK
Mr. Avery that any instructions to Capt. Littl e should come from
the Chief or the Mayor, and that I would appreciate him not telling Little
to take any action.
He said he would not, but merely "alert" Little .

MEMORANDUM
TO:
Ivan Allen, Jr.
FROM:
W. F. Floyd, Jr.
SUBJECT:
Peyton Forrest Area
Last night I had a telephone call from a neighbor of mine who
lives on Oriole Drive commenting about a meeting that was held
Saturday night somewhere in the Peyton Forrest Area. According
to the information furnished me there were some twenty-five
property owners present.
The purpose of this meeting was to discuss some lots held by Jim
Bennett, who is a realtor operating in the southwest section.
Bennett had been offered $~5,000 for these lots by some colored
real estate operators. Bennett is represented by Cecil Turner ,
and according to the information given me Turner urged th e property
owners to get together funds sufficient to buy these lots at the
$~5,000 price or he would encourage Bennett to sell to the colored
real tors.
Further it is my und erstanding George Wilson offered to pay $30 , 000
for th e se lots and give Bennett an option to buy these back at the
expiration of twelve months (I am not positive about this time),
at a profit of $500 . 00 per lot. It is my understanding that Turner
was not interes ted in listening to s uch a price.
The property owners in this area do not have the type o f money that
would en abl e th em to get together suff icient funds to buy these l ot s
at the $~5,000 f igur e . If these lots go for c olored, then the area
is op en f or f urther sales to colored peopl e.
I am sure that ther e must b e another side to the story, but I wanted
to p a s s the inf orma t ion on to you that had b e en given t o me becaus e I
know you have b een act i v el y wo rking on a p r ogram tha t would set up
a "buffer" i n thi s l ocation.

Dear Sir:
I am writing this to you as a citizen and tax payer of
the city of Atlanta and it is hoped that you will lend your
support and influence, and hope that it will preserve the
community of white residents. This, of course, relates to
the "block busting" campaign being waged by the Negroes in
our section of the city.
There are three matters of utmost importance I feel
that should come to your attention and I would like to
suggest that you give the white residents of the community
your support. Those matters are as follows:
1. Keeping Negro realtors from seeking listings in
the Peyton-Utoy Forest Community.
2. Zoning of property on Gordon Road - M 1. This
property is loc a ted on the South side of Gordon
between Peyton and Lynhurst. The hearing as I
understand it is scheduled for August 9, 1962.
J. Zoning a strip of property south of Gordon and
east of Peyton for a Negro cemetary. This would
keep Negro housing out of the community. The date,
as I understand it, for this hearing has not been
set as yet.
Thank you for any assistance and cooperation you may be
able to give in this matter.

Dear Mayor Allen:
As a resident and tax payer of Atlanta, a very beautiful part
of the Southwest section (Peyton Forrest), we solicit your help
and good influence.
As you know by now, the negroes are trying everything to cause
panic and unrest in our neighborhood.
The negro realty agents
of Calloway Realty Co., Alexander & Associates, Fuller Realty
Co. and others are using such tactics as calling everyone in a
block, saying they have several homes in the area listed for s a le.
The y are riding through the area in large numbe r , stopping and
pointing at different homes.
There has also been some seen in the
area in the early morning hours, two to three A. M.
There are
no through streets in the area and we see no reason for this
nonsense.
All the residents of the are a (Peyton and Utoy Forrest) h ave signed
an agreement not to sell to negroes, but the pressure and tactics
used by the negroes have stopped the builders from building in
the area, also people who have been transferred in business are
unable to sell their homes because of these tactics.
We built our hom e s

We h a v e s om e

area love ur community, • ur r cati n, ur neighbers, and
e ry mueh desire t keep this area white, as y u and a ll
ther white pe ple in Atlanta desire te retai• their areas
fer white enly.
"Bl eck Busting" is being carried nm re
and more in eur area by Negr Real,t'tors, and other Negro
Organizati ns , and und ubtedly ba cked by the NAACP.
We , in the Peyt n-Ut y For est C mm.unity
are asking f r your supp0rt to help keep our community
white and t help maintain the peace and tr qui lity of ur
community as we knew pri r to about December f 1st year,

and proper ty l istings in ur area~ We sk for y ur suppert

Dear Sir,
As a r esident of Atl ant a I am voi cing a st rong protest against the unlegal
lies and immoral pr actise of block- busting tacti cs us ed against the resident s
To be specific it has beem a common nl ace
of t he Peyton-Utoy Fore st Ar ea.
T .. i;
practise by negroes to repeatedly r i e.e through t he Area and " ark in front of
r es idences t hen debarki ng from t heir car ahd standing by t he r oads i de pointing
out various features of t he homes.
This undoubtedly is being done so an impr ess-
ion will be gained t hat the owner of s aid property i s considering selling to a
negr o.
In conj unction vd. th this J r epeated t elephone calls are and have been made
by negro re alties t o property owner s who have posted For Sale and including these
who have repeatedly stat ed t hat t hei r homes are not for sale.
In all cas e s
wit hout except i on t hey inferred t hat it was only a question of t ime t hat t hese
home s would be sol d
the are a.
t o negroes
as they have obtained confidential listings in
Careful inquir ers by r es i dents of t his area have proved t hat such
confidential list ing have not been made .
Thes e and ot her means have been and axe
being used.
I t herefore strongly urge t hat y ou use t he powers of y our office t o st op
the se unfair practise s t hat are jeopardizing, whi ch entails
and hopes of the citizens of this area.

This needless t -- say is your bound
moral and legal responsibility as Mayor of the city of Atlanta.

Dear Sir:
l'i:y wife and I feel you should
e made aware of the ,hicago t;ype
block-busting tactics being practised in the Peyton- Utoy Forest
Communi ty by Negro re all,tors uith the tho1 ght in mind that if it is
the big Atlanta-of-the-future picture for this area to become colored
it should be done on a whol e area basis o ou:bright purchase rather
than by sneaky moncy-grubbin pseudo-po_itical trickery whi ch I trust
you are unwittingly condo .ing by l ack of information from your
constituents o
Also, in this vein, ue are deeply concerned about two zoning petitions
that effect this lovely corrmru.nity an your decisions will be anxiously
awaited. Specifically, they concern property south of Gordon between
Peyton and Izynhurst ( ug. 9th hearing) and the zoning of property east
of Peyton for a 'egro cemet y (hearing date not yet set) .
1 e trust you are highly in favor of the two zoning petitions or will
imriediate y state your position and officiate at the taldng over of
this area in a
air and equitable manner to all concerned.
~-e hearti y agree the . egro population of this co d-be-1vonderf
c ·.ty
must have suitable housing but do not feel it should be obtained by
piece-meal block-busting of established areas . Atlanta will suf er
national stigmatization and eventual stagnation by use of such tactics
as business ::ind taxp8i)rers, like in this co1TlI'IUil.i.ty, move to more probressive an pleasant localities o

Dear Ma j or Allen:
Recen tl y I wrote y oq a letter re ga rding the ne gro block busting attemp s
whi ch are being wa ged in the Peyton-Utoy Forest Community in Southwest
Atlan ta. As a resident of this community, I thought you would like
to have a copy of t h e petition which was si gn ed by all residents of
our community.
Th i s petition cle a rly points out t hat we are not interested in s e lling
our homes, but we are constantly b othe red by phone calls, letters,
and visits from negro re a l estate brokers. These ne gro brokers know
about this petition but c ontinue to solicit listings in our all white
community. These attemps are becoming extremely annoying .
I e a r nes tly request you to use y our i nfluense t o persua~e these
ne gro br okers to abandon the i r pl anned a t tac k on our community. I am
enclosing an a rticle which a ppeared in a rec ent is s ue of t h e vve st End
Star. This a rticle sums up the block busting at t emp s in our community .
I would like to h ea r of your p l an s f or curbing t he unrest which now
ex i s ts in bout hwe st Atlanta.

Dear Mayor Allen:
I am writing you this letter as a res i dent of Peyton-Utoy
Forest which is located off Peyton and Harlan Roads in Southwest Atlanta. Since procuring my new home in December, 1961,
I have become deeply disturbed with a most unpleasant situation
which has developed in my community. It seems that a few "imported" Negro citizenry who live in various sections of our
fai r ci ty are determined to drive the Peyton-Utoy Forest residents out of Southwest Atlanta and perhaps out of the entire
ci ty of Atlanta which i s being rapidly absorbed by the Negro
popul at i on. This penetration is obvi ously aimed at gaining
control of the entire Southwest area whi ch contains many beautiful homes and thousands of civic-minded White citizens.
As a homeowner, I have been subjected to constant harras sment and unrest by these few Colored citizens who are bent on
the successful employment of Chicago "block-busting" tactics.
Residents of my community have been plagued with numerous phone
calls and visits by Negro real estate brokers soliciting listings in our all-white community. Each day children are required
to be overly cautious while playing because of the constant
stream of ~egro vehicles touring our area in an attempt to
create unrest and pani c. We a.re finding it increasingly more
difficult, if not impossible, to persuade our friends and other
prospective homeo-wners to settle in our community and enjoy the
fellowship and home life .which characterize our quite, peaceloving, neighborhood.
Mayor Allen, we are tired of being persecuted; and we tremble
at the thought of watching our $21,000 to $28,000 homes decrease
in value because of an unwarranted, uncalled-for attack by profit-minded Negroes. We earnestly solicit your help in stopping
this encroachment in our community and in Southwest Atlanta in
general. I have lived in Metropolitan Atlanta all of my life and
in the city limits for twenty years. I like Atlanta and what it
stands for; but if these block-busting tactics continue and no
�Honorable I van Allen, Jr.

assistance is offered by you and · other city officials, I, like
other friends I have talked to, may be forced to vacate this
progressive city.
I trust you will do all in your power to restore confidence in our community by persuading the Negro agitators to
abandon their block-busting attempts in Southwest Atlanta.
A reply to this appeal will be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely,
A~t ~

Dear Mayor Allen:
This letter is in behalf of the residents of Peyton-Utoy
Forest and the citizens of Southwest Atlanta.
As you probably know, quite a problem has been brought about
recently by the fact that Negroes are attempting to "run" the
white residents out of this area. Realizing that there is no
law in Atlanta restricting areas by keeping inharmonious racial
groups from l i ving together in the same neighborhood, we appeal
to you to assist us with this problem.
Of course, you realize that many families have much to lose
by having to move out of this connnunity, and not only that, the
city of Atlanta would be losing quite a bit of tax money if these
residents were forced to move out into the suburbs, or even out
of the city altogether. Also, keep in mind that uprisings such
as this will keep newcomers from wanting to move into our city for
fear of lack of security in establishing a home.
Some of our prominent government officials such as Senator Brown,
Jim Aldredge, John White and numerous others who are dedicated in
making Atlanta a prosperous city, live out in this area and I feel
sure they will assist you in taking a fair stand on this matter.
Mayor Allen, you cannot realize how a problem such as this can
affect a person. It interferes with performance on their jobs, and
I personally know of several instances. One of my neighbors is spending much time and money in the doctor's office due to the fact that
her health has become worse as a result of worrying about losing her
home. And speaking for all of the homeowners in this area, I can
assure you the attitude towards our city's government is becoming
demoralized.
·
If you think we are taking the wrong approach, I would appreciate it if you would take the time to offer us your explanation.
otherwise, I will assume that you take the same stand as the residents
of the Peyton-utoy Forest.
Sincerely,
�July 30 , 1962

Dear Mayor Allen:
I have been told that you, as well as the Aldermailic Board, are trying to
help the white citizens of the Southwest section stay in the City of Atlantao
I understand that a representative of Southwest Inco had a meeting with you
sometime back to discuss the negro encroachment problem. Also that there
is a plan to extend Westview Cemetery to Peyton Road and Zone a strip of
land M-1 to provide a buffer zone for the white citizens of Southwesto
I live in Peyton/Utoy Forest and it is becoming increasingly apparent that
no one is doing anything to help uso Our area represents approximately 60
homes, valued at between $21,000. and $28,000o eacho This not only represents
considerable tax income for the city but also contains many civic minded voterso
Both of these factors will be a considerable loss to the city should we be
forced by negro encroachment to leave the city limits behind us.
I might also point out that as soon as the negros force us out, they will next
force out the people on Peyton Road, Sewell Road, Audubon Forest and finally
the entire C:-.scade Heights section. I don't believe I need remind you how many
votes came from this section for you in the last electiono
Were we foolish to vote f or you?
Should we accept the negro encroachment and plan to move out of Atlanta?.
I ask this because few of us will stay in Atlanta City Limits if our own
elected officials do not give us help in our time of needo
I would certainly like to have my confid enc e in our offici:-.ls restored, and
m uld like to hear from you pertaining to your plans for the Southwest sectiono
Awaiting your replyo
Very
";~--Y; yours,

My dear Mayor Allen:
Home ownership and l::md ownership has been the very foundation of our
great nation. Through engendered pride and determin tion, our forebears set
the path for pre-eminence of America in world ·affairs.
However hazardous land and home ownership may have been to our forefathers, todays insidious movements present equally heart breaking risks.
About two years ago I purchased a home after retirement in the Utoy ForestPeyton Forest area. Along with fifty or more others in this area I invested
all my savings and mortgaged a limited income.
Our little neighborhood is new. We t ake nride in home ownership.
Collectively our investment in Atlanta runs to about d~l.2 million. Now we
find the future uncertain. Negro interests are trying to move in. Pressure
and unsc~pulous practices are being applied. Open as well as covert t acti cs
are evident. The objactice - break the community and buy property at a
fr action of its real value.
What can we do Mr . Mayor ? We are trying to stand together and holj our
community intact. This is an appeal to you - use your very powerful office
to give us aid and assistance. At least in a moral way through Negro real
estate interests.
May we count on your support?
Sincerely,
�July 31, 1962

Dear Mayor Al len :
As a homeowner and civic-minded citizen of the City of
At l anta , I am wr i ting this l etter in the inter est of my
home , as we l l as t he homes of my f r i ends and ne i ghbor s4
I am a resident in the Utoy-Peyton Forest Area , which is
constantly being plaqued with threats from the negro race ,
to invade on our property , and sec ure our homes . It is
not very pleasant to know that you have worked for many ,
many years , are finally able to give your fami ly what you
have always wanted for them , t hen , by no fa ult of your
own , have t o unwillingly sell out , and leave i t o Sure ,
it is said that yo u do not have to sell , that ' s true , but
afterteing plaqued with threats from the negro race , as we
have been , almost constantly , for the last year , there is
usually one , as has been proven in other parts of the City ,
who will panic - then your community usually goes .
I do not believe the elected officials of our City realize
just what a threat this is to the City of Atlanta . If not ,
it is time your eyes were opened to what is · happening and
will continue to happen . People who have been forced to give
up their homes are leaving the City Limits of Atlanta . The
majority of others who are being threatened , or are in a
danger zone , are pla nning the same . We certainly have no
intentions of staying7 with the possibility of getting into
similar situation in another part of the City o
e will continue to battle this situation until the bitter end,
but we certainly need , and should have the support of you in
the City Hall o There is an urgent need for action to be tken
to curb this "block-busting 11 that not only is threatening our
community , but the City of Atlanta at large o

Ask yourself what will become of Atlanta if the people
affec ted leave the city limits? Can ' t you see the potential
danger . If you could live in t~e situation , with the people,
hear the discussions , and see it through our eyes , I then
believe you would realize there is a danger of losing not
only a great amount of tax money today , but your white
citize~s in great numbers . Then what will happen?
I have lived in Atlanta the greater part of my life , love it
dearly and would never have wanted to live anywhere else until
now , but to have peace and tranquility , it seems I have no
other choicee
We are not asking or saying that the negro ra ce not have what
they justly deserve e we only ask that they get it in their
own rights , instead of harassing us , and by hook or crook ,
get what is ours , when we are unwilling to give it up, but do
so through force .
Mayor Allen , I would appreciate an answer , telling us just
what plans are being made , if any , or what steps we might
take to get help in stopping this before it has gone too far .
Please let me hear from you in the near future .

Dear Mayor Allen ;
About fifteen months ago my wife and I purchased the home
£or which we have been working f or the twenty years we
have been married . It is located in the Utoy- Peyton For est
area in the Southwest section of Atlanta . we started with
drapes , carpets , and many other things that go into a home ,
and in about three (3) months here comes the negroes , and it
has been a continual fight since that time to save our homes e
We have owned and paid taxes on three different homes in the
Southwest Atlanta section in these twenty years , so naturally
we feel that we have had a small part in building this great
City of ours of which we elected you Mayor o
We have voted for many bonds in the past to help make our City
great . For the last several years the taxpayers that have
been paying for most of the bonds , have had to fight continually to hold their homes , schools and churches .
Now we are being asked to vote for another bond - Eighty Million
Dollars worth . We all want to- continue to help our City to grow ,
and like any business, it will have to have additional revenue
to do so . When one has to fight so hard to hold on to his
possessions , there is the question in one ' s mind whether you
would want to vote for something that would keep you investing
in something you will eventually lose .
I
Mro Mayor it is my humble opinion that you and the AldermaNic
Board should take some positive and constructive action immediately
to insure the white · citizens of Southwest Atlanta that our taxes
and votes will not be spent in vain o

Dear Mayor Allen:
An attitude of fear and resentment is fast developing in the residents of
a proud Southwest Atlanta community. Fear of losing the new homes
they love at staggering financial losses and resentment at their elected
city officials for no assistance. If the block busting" tactics employed ·
in this community prove successful, all Cascade Heights will quickly
feel the affect. Yes, all of Atlanta will suffer through the Loss of long
time white residents to the suburbs carrying with them a deep seated
and justifie d hat r ed, reduced property values of entire Southwest
A tlanta, a nd a d r astic curtailm ent of city revenue.
Our neighbo r hood of P eyton a nd Utoy F or e st is composed of ho me s th at
range in price fr o m $21,000 - $ 28,000 and we are surrounded by all
wh it e commun ities . A petitiion rea dily signe d by all ho me owners in
Pey to n and Utoy F o r est cle arly indicate s t h at we d e sire to re m ain a ll
wh ite . We b e lie ve the e ntire f uture of Southwest A tlanta a nd t h e overall
good of our c ity can b e st b e serve d by a llowing our community to remain
unchanged.
L is t ed b e l ow are som e o f the ' 'b lock busting " t a ctics be i n g u s e d to harass
and fr i ghten our ne ighbo rs:
1.
Negroes cons t antly r iding through the neighb orho od
stopping and pointing at h ouses. This area i s well
off the ma in thoroughfare and many children play
here. A majority of these cars have out o f town
licences indicating they may be paid to agitate.
�Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr ••••..•• Page Two
2.
Night telephone calls from agents of Callaway Realty
to 15 - 20 homes on each street asking for listings.
These agents also infer that they have secured listings
from home owners in this area. No home owner in
our area has listed his home with a Negro realty
company. You could stop this intimidation.
3.
Realty salesmen from T. M. Alexander constantly
riding through our neighborhood, stopping at every
opportunity and questioning home owners about the
sale of their property.
We in particular and all Atlanta in general urgently need the influence
and persuasiveness of your office to prevent our loss. We plan to make
a sincere effort to take all legal steps possible to protect the sanctity
and value of our community. We sincerely request your help.
Yours very truly,
