Meet The Atlanta Braves
18
Proves He's Tough Guy to Beat
By JOHN LOGUE
Nineteen Thirty Five was a heckuva year for the Siluril,
Ala., Buckwheat Mills baseball team.
One-tenth of the men man-
aging in the major leagues
today were in that Siluria
lineup.
The incumbent manager
the Atlanta Braves, Robert Randall "Bobby" Bra-
of
gan, alternated between a
"skint" infield and a Johnson Grass ouUield.
And who was on the
mound Wednesdays and
Sundays? "Lum" Luman
Harris, that's who.
In case you aren' t up on
your baseball genetics, Lum
Harris is the new manager
of the Houston Colts.
There "ain't" but 20 men
managing in the major
leagues - and that's counting a head coach in Chicago - and no less than
two of them got their elementary education with the
Buck~·heat Mills boys o(
Siluria. Those were t h e
days when there wasn't any
income tax. Heck, there
wasn't any income.
Bobby Bragan, 46, has
never failed this auspicious
begiMing.
THE
PHILADELPHIA
Phillies signed him in 1937
and he didn't take but three
years getting into the big
time. He hit .2&'i, .298. and
.3ll at Pensacola, FI a.,
where the class of baseball
wasD."
The next three years he
played his second base in
Philadelphia where he was
known more for his batUe
than his bat, hitting o n ly
.222, .251, and .218 for the
Phillies.
Brooklyn liked him and
got him and he hit .264 ..267
(spent 1945-46 in military
service) and .194 and .167
b e fore returning to the
m1nor leagues at F o r t
Worth, Hollywood and Spokane until 1959.
In the interim, he also
managed Fort Worth to the
Texas League title in 1941
his first time out as a playini!"a;:le~ort Worth finished second and fourth and
second and then Qt' man11,zed J-fol!ywoorf, !"!a. to the
Padf1c Coast pennant in
1953. He fin ished second and
thi rd there the next two
years and in 19.'ili made hi!
major league debut as manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
THE MAN was willing
but the flesh was weak in
Pittsburgh w h ere the Plrates finished seventh twice.
Cleveland called and Bragan brought the Indians into
mid-season sixth in 1958. He
finished out the year at
Spokane where that ieam
finished seventh.
His 1959 Spokane team
was fifth and in 1960 Bragan
turned his talents to coaching for the Dodgers and in
1961 to scouting for the
Houston Colts-with his old
Siluria sidekick Lum Harris.
The Br.aves gave the No.
1 job to Bragan in 1963 and
this year extended his contract as a show of faith
aft.er the Milwaukee club
finished firth, only five
games off the pace. Bra·
gan's team won 20 of its
last26gameslastseason.
Bragan made baseball history at Spokane when he
took an obscure, 26-year-old
minor league shortstop and
turned him into a formidable switch-hitter named
Maury Wills. Lifted into the
big time by a responsive
bat, Wills has gone on to
steal I04basesinone season and be named the Most
Valuable Player in the National League.

Braves Rode
A Long Trail
To Atlanta
By JACK DOANE
AllaalaJe on,a lAoolol . . 1 ~"'1.IF.41. .
The Braves, original charter members of the National
Baseball League when It was
formed in 1876, have had
many nicknames and now begin a new chapler in their
third city of residence, but one
fact has remained constant
through it all- winning is the
team's tradition.
The team has had many
nicknames. It has been known
as the Red Stockings, Beaneaters, Doves, Rustlers · and
...,_
The club won four pennants
in the old National AssoriaUon
from 1871-75 before the league
was reorganized into the present National League in 1178
with Booton a membe?-. ContNlders were .frequmt .and

e11rly years. ~oteam in baseball history ls more reno~ned than the 1914 •·Miracle
Braves" who rcsidf'd in the


'liL cellar on Jul)' 18, then


sla~hed through thr rest of the
league and won the Jl('nnant
by ten and onr-half games,
and rocked the fabled Philadelphia Athletics in four
straight games in the World
Series.
That was the last championship uni~ 1948 when Billy
Southworth, m his third season as manager. brought home
the bacon to Beantown. That
was the year of the victory
cry "Spahn and Sain and two
days of rain."
Just four years later the
bloom was gone. After a peak
attendance of 1,455,439 in 1!148,
the club attracted only 281,278
fans in 1952, and owner Lou
Perini gave up the ship and
moved the team to Milwaukee
in March of 1953.
FOR the next four seasol15
the Braves finished second
three times and third once.
Then came the bonanza as the
same old Spahn and his new
mound cohort, Lew Burdette,
brought the pennant to the
baseball-cra1.ed Milwaukeeans.
In 1959 U1e story was the
same-a pennant. Only the
ending changed as the Yanks
rallied from a 3-1 deficit to
win the world's. championship
in seven games. The following
year the team slipped to second and hasn't won a pennant since.
Braves Boast Three of Game's Greatest Stars
H was almost as if the Milwaukee Braves were destined
for Dixie when they hired their present coaching staff,
which is definitely "you-all" in character.

Mathews,

either
Spahn
or
Mathews, still has a great future ahead of him. The past
behind him, however, is almost enough to insure his
place among the all-time
greats. He has been called
by some "the finest a\1aroond player in the game."
In 1963 he had one of the
greatest seasons ever ex-

Jan Van Duser, former Tampa sports writer now a key member of Jesse Outlnr's Constitution staff, was the volunteer guide
for a tour of the staggering complex, being built where there
used to be slum and/or near slum housing. The story of this
gtadium, yet without an ending, is one of bold courage, convlction and a handful of men of action.
Future Home of Braves
In the event you are but an occasional reader of such, the
Milwaukee Braves were to shift here beginning this April but
have now been told by the National League to remain in Mlnne1;ota one more summer. It isn't likely to be a financially profitable season there with fans angry at the projected move.
With tacit agreement to move to Atlanta for the 1965
11eason, the contract for the structure was let, Meanwhile,
the St. Louis Cardinals or the National Football Lea111•
came with an ace of shlrtlnr but the city and the Carda
patched up their domestic squabbling with promises of a
new stadium and Stormy Bidwell decided to stay Indefinitely
in the blues city.
Atlanta, meanwhile, holds a glimmer o( hope that the Braves
may yet come for the '65 season, meanwhile ready to invite any
National Football League member who may become disenchanted
at his present surroundings. The American Football League is
ready to exp1md now and probably would take in Atlanta and
New Orleans next fall, ll the two southern cities gave It the sign.
Atlanta, however, probably will hold out for the NFL, a while
anyway.
....
The stadium is but a quarter-mile from the beari of
Atlanta. A major lnt.erchanS"e of all hla'hwan is riS"ht ne:d
Seating for Huge Crowds
It ls convertible. Will seat 51,500 for baseball, 57,100 for
football, all most comfortably. It is a bowl three-tiered and an
excavation. That is, park, walk In from street level and you're
on the second tier. You walk down to 16,455 lower grandstand
and box scats. The upper grandstand seats 25,200. Offices are
built into the structure. Milwaukee has them rent free in the
25-year-contract that is in the vault. Milwaukee also has the
concessions, with a percentage to the stadium authority.
ln a sentence, the stadium is beinl' buiU because the
city's mayor, Ivan Allen Jr,, felt one was needed, saw the
benefits of it, coupled with the pro football and/or major
leag,,te baseball. He went out and got it.
This way:
Allen, a former chamber of commerce president was elected
as the "businessman mayor." His first team for the maneuvering
that brings the stadium and ball club, included Mills Lane ,
c:hairman o( the board of the Citizens and Southern Bank,
Georgia's largest; Arthur Montgomery, Atlanta Coca~Cola bottler;
Opie Shelton, chamber of commerce execuUve director; Furman
Bisher, Journal sports editor, and Atlanta architects Bill Finch
and George Heery.
"All we had to do, those two years ago," said the mayor,
"was rind a club which mic-ht be wantlnr to move, then persuade them to make that move to Atlanta, where we ofrered
them a stadium not yet designed, to be built with money
we didn't yet have, on land we didn't yet own."
Mayor Author of Project
Allen was the author of a "Forward Atlanta" promotion
project and the stadium was one part of this. Biggest assist,
really, came when at least two big league clubs did show genuine
interest.
On assurance of payment, banker Lane got two architectural firms to pool skills to design the stadium. Forty-five members of their staffs worked on draft.! for which there was yet

unit. The group set about talking to the Kansas City Athletics,
Braves, anybody who·d listen.
A two-year juggling act began, trying to get a team with
which to get a stadium to entice a team. Sports fans-and this
was important-and those favoring a cultural center and audl·
torlum pooled support for the passage of the bond issue that
would make it possible. Previously, both proposals had been de·
fcated in bond issues. The joint team or sports and high brows
got the referendum through.
Next, the contract, for construction, and for the blr
lea,-ueUam.
With the disappointment caused when the Natlonal League
chose to force the Braves to remain in Milwaukee another year,
there has been some grumbling, but not much. The minor league
Crackers will play in the swank surroundings this year, on
grass that is already grown in hot houses, as the arand structure
has a shakedown year.
The supreme test foJlows.
A couple of years from now, will those magnificent lnteratate highways which brush against the stadium see AUantans
driving the 70-mlle.an-hour limit to get to the ball game. or,
to get on through the city to whatever it will be that will be
more magnetic, then?
At least, Atlanta bids for an answer,

Sir -
You must be joking (although it certainly is in
bad taste) when you say "Milwaukee shoua:d step
aside in a gesture of good will so Atlanta can ·
have the Braves". How about you practicing a
little of what you are preaching - and let
Atlanta step aside?
I certainly hope the "powers to be" will make
it a little tougher for any situation like this
in the future.
Oh, well - perhaps some day we here in Wisconsin
will have the last laugh????

��Atlanta tries to hit one into the stands
It takes an awful lot of dream or
an awful lot of commercial expectation to make a hardheaded, business-minded city
like Atlanta plunk down $18million for a major league sports
stadium-especially when it
ends up by tagging on an additional $700,000 to insure completion within a year.
Yet that is exactly what Atlanta has don e, and all without
any rock-hard assmance that it
is going to get th e big teams to
fill its seats for baseball (5 1,500)
and football (57,100) . Of course,
Atlanta Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr.,
(picture) and his associates
think they have the transfer of
the Milwaukee (nee Boston)
Braves nailed down for next
spring. But the Milwaukee city
fath ers are putting up a brisk
fight in the courts, and nothing
is yet sealed and delivered.
The bait. The answer, of
course, is that the advent of a
major league team brings with it
a shower of gold-much from
out of town-even if it peters
out after a few years. One survey figures that just in 1961,
after the New York Giants
moved to San Francisco, $11million was spent in the city on
baseb all entertainment.
Atlanta's stadium boos ters
figure their chances this way.
They'll be the first major league
baseball city in tl1e South. The
city's own population -is 1.2-million ; to that add 25-million
people in seven Southeastern
states, tied by a netv. ork of 32
expressway lanes less th an a
mile from downtown Atlanta.
Six metropolitan centers are
within 2½ hours driving time of
the stadium, and there's not a
traffic light to balk them.
On the air. For the first year,
baseball attendance should hit
1.5-million, according to CocaCola bottler Arthur L. Montgomery, one of the project's
sparkplugs. For his part, Mayor
Allen thinks $SO-million a year
would be " a very low estimate"
for the dollar turnover and boost
in sales and services. There are
also rosy expectations for TV
and radio revenu es.
Atlanta is betting that its fine
spring and fall weather should
put it way ahead of chilly 1ilwaukee, where postponements
are a hazard. And even Milwaukee, with a top team and the
first glow of novelty, shattered
all kinds of attendance records.
It took quite a few years, and
considerable downgrading of the
team, before its attendance began to shrink.

Peking, ChJna - Well, let's say It
right away, at the end of a long journey of seven weeks in Communist
China: When Peking's rulers say that
they have "on the whole" succeeded, I
think they are telling the truth.
The Communist regime is now firmly on the tracks, although errors and
obstacles brought it close to disaster.
There has been great general progress,
although there ttlll exist areas-30metime1 immense-of difficulties and
1uffering, as the Chinese concede implicitly and u any objective visitor
can see.
Enemies of communism would be
thunderstruck by the progress; friends
of communism would be appalled by
the problems that remain.
Communism hu won two vlctoriet
in China.
Firtt, it has conquered all sorts of
long standing evilt--Corruption, diaorderliness, disease. The advances I
noted in my last visit in the autumn of
1955 have been consolidated. And if
it is true tbat the Chinese have suf.
fered a famine, they are not hungry
toda y.
But communism has also scored a
second victory. It has decidedly "succeeded"-if that is the word- in manufacturing obedience by pushing its 700
million people through the rollen of
Mao Marxism.
It was in the three day, 2,000 mile
train trip from Hong Kong to Peking
that I witnessed my fint surprise.
There, carved on the technlcolor landscape, was the Immense effort of •
whole people to feed its multitude..

• lhows that United Trust Llfe


Jnsurance Co. of Atlanta ac·


,.tually filed two registration
Statements on Sept. 22.
United Trust, they reveal,
Approximately 100,000
shares to United Trust officials and members of their
families.
The balance, some 25,000
shares, to prospective investors "who may be valuable in
marketing the company's insurance policies and develoJ>ing business."
The SEC announcement also
noted that United Trust al·
ready has outstanding 75,000
common shares sold at $10 a
share to 15 wlidentlfied preorganizational subscribers, and
that management officials as
a group own 35,000 of these
shares.
It further points out that
United Trust was organized
in Georgia last May, has ol.fices In the Hurt Building,
and intends to conduct a life,
accident and health insurance
business.
NET PROCEEDS
The net proceeds of the
stock sa1e, It adds, are to be
used to meet capital requirements for applying for a Ji.
cense to engage In the insurance business in Georgia and
to conduct an insurance business.
The only company official
identified by the SEC release
is Paul Light, president.
While no background is given on him, his former emJoyer sent out a press reease a few weeks ago announcing the appointment of
his successor and mentioning
that Light had become presldeot of United Trust In Atlanta. That employer was Pan
American 14fe in New Orleans and, as best we can rec:all now, L.ight was vice presi-dent in charge of agencies.
Anyway, United Trust and
its proposed big stock issue

They're Right
Off the Bat
A'l'LANTA-The visitor realizes he's in the South's
most progressive spot when old friends m~et him
at the airport with jack daniels and grits and hustle
him through a maze of freeways to where major
league baseballers will soon live.
This is the sleek new stadium being built almost
in the heart of Atlanta. Bulldozers are shoving deep into the 11Jsty
Georgia clay and concrete tiers are thrusting up amid the everchanging skyline of the oldtime city.
" We're going to play an exhibition \vith the Yankees in this
stadium on April 9," says Bob Richardson, a top governor's aide
and one of the forces behind the new sports ambition. " And we'll
open the season in it on April 15."
By "we", the Atlanta citizenry means the Atlanta Braves,
who will make the jump from Milwaukee in a matter of days.
There is much official hush-hush about it, lest an earthquake
or the Supreme Court or some other act of nature spoil the pudding at the last second. And it's typical of baseball's pussyfooting
a ttitude that the Milwaukee-to-Atlanta move hasn't been openly
declared before now.
The Milwaukee directors are meeting today in Chicago. And
they'll vote to approve the shift. The Nationaj League officials
meet in New York later this week and will doubtless okay the
franchise transfer.
The stadium is a rush act. When the Atlanta leaders suddenly decided they wanted in the Big Swim, they didn't waste time
with flim and fadclle and political strings and twiddle dees and
twiddle dums. A couple rich johns said they'd underwrite the
thing, so start digging and all the details would be worked out
later, like dividing the stadium cost between the city, county and
state and retirin it with revenue bonds. So the dirt comTllenced
flying. The contractors ,vill have to forfeit $2,000 every day past
April 15 it takes to complete it.

On the Way
HIS CITY desires very m uch to be the sports center below
the Mason-Dixon and it dang shore will be.
It's jus( a question of time until a pro football team locates
there.
Atlanta had the St. Louls football Cal'dinals, for a couple days
anyway. The Bidwell brothers wanted to move their NFL franchise to that city. And the bustling Atlantans offered them a rockbottom rental deal. But when the Bidwells returned to St. Louis to
talk things over, they were offered a better deal by a citizen of
that city, one who owned a small chunk of the stock. So they bad
to pull out of their Atla nta commitments. F or the time being,
anyways.
There have been reports that the Steelers might consider
moving here. Owner Art Rooney bas been seen lunching here with
Ar thur Montgomery, a wealthy soft drink distributor and one of
the go-gettum powers around town. But the feeling now is that
Rooney will nc;it leave Pittsburgh.
The Ameii can Football League, it's believed, would move a
club there at the drop of an invitation. Commissioner Joe Foss,
on a recent visit, warned the Atlantans " not to let too many
trains pass by". Meaning an AFL franchise in the hand is worth
two NF L d ubs in the bush.

Ed Mathews, the Braves third baseman, was a minor league
star here in 1950. Coaches Whitlow Wyatt and Dixie Walker both
managed minor league teams here. Coach J o J o White is a qeorgia native and Manager Bobby Bragan is from nearby Birmingham.
Lloyd's of London once made a study and predicted that
Atlanta would be the largest city in. the world a t the tum of the
next centw-y. At least that's what some local citizens claim.
And it's believeable because the impressive notion _a bout this
city is its drive its scorn of redtape and meaningless hours
around conference tables. There is more a ction than talk. Atlanta
wanted to be bigtime in sports, so some of the riches underwrote
the project and they went out and got results. 1t was as simple
s that.

"This is a sad day for baseball,
said Wisconsin Gov. John W. Reynolds. "The owners of the Braves

Mayor Henry Maier said the

Maier said. " I think that as this

Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr.
Mayor, City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Ga.
Dear Mayor Allen:
This will acknowledge telegram sent to me at Shamrock
Hilton Hotel, Houston, extending an invitation to the Major Leagues
to hold their convention in Atlanta in 1966. The invitation was
extended by me to our League in session at our Annual Meeting and
Bill Bartholomay urged our League to accept the invitation.
Mr. John Galbreath, President of the Pittsburgh Baseball
Club, extended an invitation on behalf of Pittsburgh and inasmuch
as Pittsburgh had been in the League for many years and had not
been selected as a c onvention site for many, many years it was the
sentime nt of our League that Pittsburgh ,be given the preference.
Another matter which influenced the selection of Pittsburgh
was the indication that the minor league convention would be held
in Columbus, Ohio in 1966 and we try and meet in a major l e ague
city as near the site of the minor l eague convention as appears
practicable.
I hope to get to Atlanta sometime this spring to see the
beautiful new s tadium you are c onstructing and which I am happy
t o know will be the hom e of the Braves in 1966.
Sincere ly yours,

Dear Mayor Allen:
I want to thank you for the time and courtesies shown to Al
Roach and myself this past week in your office. It was a
pleasure meeting you after knowing of you for so many years
through Ian Stalker. We were raised in the same neighborhood.
Again, I would like to congratulate you, Mayor Allen, on
making an outstanding contribution to Atlanta, Georgia, and
the Southeast, by bringing the Milwaukee Braves to Atlanta.
All of us will benefit from your efforts.
We, of the Royal Crown Cola Co., as I stated in your office,
stand ready to do what we can to insure the success of major
league baseball and football. We hope you will convey this
interest to the Atlanta Braves. They will really belong to all
Georgians almost as much as to Atlanta!
Another point I would like to reiterate , Mayor Allen , is our
desire as a Georgia company , to sell our products in our
capitol city on a non-ex clusive basis . We only want the
opportunity to have our product s available along wit h other
Georgia companies. You have indicat ed this opportunity is
available t hrough the Braves , so we will pursue t his course .

Dear Bob:
This will confirm our conversation in connection
with the acquisition by Milwaukee Braves 9 Inc. of the
Atlanta franchise in the International League.
~he price
for the franchise is $285,000 of which $200,000 is a relocati on expense under the agreement between the Braves
and the Stadium Authority.
This will confi rm our agreement that after the 1965
baseball season is completed, the Braves will pay $50,000
to the Stadium Authority if they determine that they want
to operate the franchise in some location outside of
Atlanta.
The net effect of this transaction will be to
make the cost of the franchise $235,000.
It i s
the Braves
they will
$35,000 of
further understood that at some futu r ·e date i.1
sell this franchise for in excess of $50,000,
credit the Authority with up to the first
such excess.
The purpose of the foregoing unde r s t andings is t o ,
if at all possible, limit the cost of the franchise bo th
to the Braves and the Stadium Authority to $100,000 each.
Sincerely,
-- ?Thomas A. Rey nol d s , Jr.

Sh,igging N egro outfielder
Hank Aaron of the Milwaukee
Braves, one of the perrenial ter. rors of National League pitchet's, has voiced reserva tions
a bout playing in · Atlanta if
th'at's wher e his ballclub t urns
up next season.
Aa ron, w ho stroked 24 home
-.runs this year, knocked in ~5
runs and belted a r eSP,eotable
.328, is a valued asset t o his employers, who
apparently have wearied of (Milwa ukee even
il their star out,fielder has not.
ow ·he is t orn -b etween his loyalty to the
Braves and his obligations to his fam-i1y.
\He Is wontlerlng aloud about housing . conditions and other opportunities t here. 1 Wo uld
his children a ttend a s egregated · and inferior
school? Would t hey be rebuffed, s nubbed or
scarl'ed psychologically if the Braves play in ·
Georgia ?
"I just •won't step out on the field" if the
club moves there, he told a wire service reporter. "I Jcertainly don't like t he idea· of playing 111 Atlanta and I have no intention of taking my !amily· t here."
• • •
!His absence from t he Braves lineup might
eue the cares of rival National League mana gers 1but it would -be a severe blow to t he·
Braves.
It would also dash the hopes o! Atlanta's
Negro leaders who have worked tirelessly to
bring professlo11al baseball and· football clubs
to Geongla's first city.
_
They've labored in the conviction that integr ated pro teams would dramatically demonstrate what citizens of color can accomplish
given equal opportunlties.
.
It is • their hope that - Aaron's big bat and
superstar pop1,1larity' will help knock J im Crow
out of town.
Atlanta's NAACP Presiden
has writ ten Aaron asking hf
mind and play._
Atlanta, he said, ls a p t'ojpessive, bulffl
city where conditions are ltfll)roving stelldl
for Negroes.
'
Like other Negr.o leaders, Smith knows
tully that Atlanta has its shortcomings. Early
t his year, 54 signed a declaration calling for
impr ovements that would make · direct aot-1011
protests unn ecessa ry. They heeded Rev. Mal'tin i..tither King's warning that time was "running out" for Atlanta if it 41d not make more
rap id strides in race relations;
.
Since then, virtually all ·public· places were
"voluntarily" opened to N eg
-either by the
presence of · pickets, press u
from the Attorney G eneral's office, · pas!ftlte of the Civil
Rig hts Act or q uiet, <but e19ctive negotiati~
by the Urban League.
'
(Mayor I van Allen, who pleaded eloquently
for the Act in Congress, is· regarded as one of
. the Sout h's outstanding progressives w ho has
helped crea te · a· climate in which change can
be made peace~ully.
B ut Atlanta has a long way ·to go in bettering · its schools, housing· and job opportunities
for Negroes. · · ,
F or example, one-half of the city's renlal
·un its occu pied by Negroes· are substandard and
80 percent of the adult population over 25 years
. of a ge holds no high school diploma. .
'
For Aaron, the choice is difficult.
To him, doffing his Mt when the "Star
Spangled Banner" is piped over the loudspeaker
opening day in the city's ne'w $18,000,000 st!l.dium may prove bitter ironr,t It he fears for
t he welfare of his family.
But such a sacriflc is ee.rifestly desired by
Negro leaders who
h
fu l t hat his 'big
bat will help them h
an "Open City,"
one in which opporlllm.tita e translated Into
reality "for all. ··

Dear Mr. Young :
A friend of mine forwarded me a copy of your
article "Can a Negro Play Ball in Atlanta?" .
I think you have stated the matter very clearly
and I appreciate your careful consi deration of
the problems with which we are confronted.
I had hoped to have an opportunity to see you
last Thursday evening , and reg-ret th t I could
be at the U rban League dinner for such a. brief
period of time.
M r. Howl nd briefed me on your talk and stated
that it was an exc ellent presentation. T he next
time you are in Atlanta, I sincerely hope you will
give me a ring.
With b st wi hes, I

Dear Ivan:
I want to congratulate you on procuring the Milwaukee Braves
for 1966. The delay of one year should not be harmful, but actually
should enable us to get a better start in presenting a good front
during that season.
In view of the fact that Legion Field in Birmingham has now been
enlarged to 69,000 and has neither college football, professional
football, or baseball in it does indicate the great need for a major
stadium in a city of our size.
I think it is wonderful that you have
provided this leadership for an installation that never would have
been built under the administration of your predecessor.
I sincerely hope that the team will be successful in Atlanta and
that we will ultimately procure a Major League football franchise.
With kind regards, I am
yours,

Dear Ann:
I t certainly was pleasant talking with you yesterday and I was
hopeful that Bob Maercklein could be hel pful in some way . Bob
handles our advertising and publ ic r elati ons and is a good personal f r i end of mine. He comes from an old Milwaukee f ami l y of
high standing, and his uncle i s a former Governor of Wisconsin .
Frankl y, having lived here nine mont hs, I am convinced that t his
Brave s issue is one now of county polit ics and I feel there i s
l ittle hope of changi ng the county officials minds. They have
made such an i ssue of this wh ole Braves deal t hat they are afraid
that any concession t o Atl anta would assure t heir future pol itical
defeat . The attitude even among some business men is, make them
play here and refuse to support them .
I am afraid it would be unwise f or Atlant a to make any further
direct efforts to solicit assistance from the local officials.
The newspapers of course enjoy blowing the whol e thing out of
proportion .
Please give my best to Mayor Allen and if there is any change
in the situation or any new thoughts I will get in touch with
you.

An Official Editorial of WSB-TV,
THE HYPHENATED BRAVES
Atlanta, Georgia
November 9, 1964
The future of the Milwaukee Braves seems to be settled. They'll
play one more year in Milwaukee, then they'll move to Atlanta for
the 1 66 season.
Some local fans are understandably disappointed that there will be
no big league baseball here next year, and in case they're inclined
to go scapegoating we suggest they shy away from Mayor Allen.
The Mayor made some bright promises based on his confidence in Atlanta.
Allen said he could deliver big league baseball to our town, and he
was right. He was simply a year early due to unforeseen legal
complications. And if we hadn't built the stadium we wouldn't even
have a team for 1966 .
The attitude of Milwaukee officials seems curious. Of course, they're
unhappy about losing the Braves. But it's sort of like a man telling
his wife .... "In one year I'm going to divorce you and I've already
got your replacement picked out.
In the meantime, I e x pect you to be
I
the same sort of wife you ve always been ".
It just won I t work.
Milwaukee officials have delayed the inevitable one year, and it
profits them very little. Next year they ' ll have a hyphenated team
perhaps the sports writers will call them the Milwaukee dash Atlanta
Braves .
So n ow the political barrage against Mayo r Allen may begin . We ho pe
not . Atlanta has waited 70 yea r s for a majo r league team , and one
mo r e yea r i s n' t u nreasonable. Allen did eve ry thi ng in his powe r to
get t h e Braves fo r 1965 . A written contrac t to that e ff ect would
h a ve made no d i fferen c e. Th e Braves we r e obligated to pla y i n /
Milwaukee n e x t yea r. It was hoped that the team c o u ld s imp ly pay off
the r e nt o n Milwauk ee Co unt y S t a d ium a nd mo v e , but legal actio h
blo cked that.
I
So for one year Atlanta may have a vacant stadium. Fo r at least 25
years thereafter, Atlanta will have big league baseball .. • •••. that
leaves l i ttle room for c omplaint .

Dear Mr. Mayor:
'!1here has been occasions in the past when big
league teams have played some of their games away from
their home grounds.
I wonder if it would be possible for each team
in the National League to agree to play four of its home
games in the Atlanta Stadium. Five would be better, but
I am using four for conveniency.
'!1hen, we could get sufficient public spirited
citizens to buy sufficient tickets to the games to
guarantee an attendance of not less than 30,000.
I am sure that a plan of this kind has crossed
your mind, but if it hasn't, it might be worth considering.
With kindest personal regards, I am

Atlanta, Ga.
Dear Ivan:
I want to congratul ate y ou on the c losing
of t he contr act to bring Major Leagu e Baseb all to Atlanta
to be played in the new stadium you have champ ione d all
t hese months . Yours has been a worthy t a sk and I am
c er t a in that history will prove this to b e one of the
fin e st steps forwar d that Atlanta has ever und er taken.
It n as been my pleasure to view ALL of the
l arges t stadiums i n America a nd quit e a few overseas .
One day I read a list of all t he l arges t stadiums in
America with the c apa city of each listed . I ha d been
in all of them fr om the Rose Bowl in Pa sadena to the
Yale Bowl i n New Haven a nd includ ing the Sesqui-Centennial
Stadium in Phila de l phia , Soldi ers Field a t Chi cago,
Orange Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Los Angeles Co liseum, Univ oof
California at Berkeley, California. I have witnessed
Maj or League Baseball games in 95% of all t he National
Leagu e and Amer i c an League baseba ll parks i nclu ding the
Milwaukee park a nd my exper ienc e le ads to· the conclus i on
that the good that will come to Atlant a in the building
of the new and modern stadium is incalculable.
I peddled Coca- Colas in Ponce de Leon park in
1919 and made the handsome sum of $J . 65 on the l as t day
of the season when the Cr ackers defeated New Orleans in
a battle for t h e pennant before some 13,000 fans. Most
of this profit c ame from selling Coca-Cola bottle crates
for the rightfield standees aft er we sold out of cold
drinks. I menti on these things t o indicate that I am
really not a novice when a discussion ar ises conc erning
the subject matter. I was present the day Arthur Montgomery
presen ted the Stadium plan to the Board of Aldermen when
the general public was invited. Mr.Montgomery made as
fine a presentation on a subject as I have ever heard.
The two of you have aone something f or Atlanta of which
you can well be proud!

�It 1 s Quite a City - - - - WELCOME TO ATLANTA
If you are new to the Atlanta School System, please regard this as a
warm and cordial welcome not only to th.e Sys tern but to Atlanta itself.
Y-0u have joined one of the finest educational teams in the nation.
Your talents, efforts and creativity are needed to help make it the
best in the nation.
Perhaps you will not feel that we are immodest when we point out that
although Atlanta is twenty~fourth in the nation in population, it has
the fifth busiest airport, nineteen degree-granting colleges and
universities, several local theatre groups, a choral guild, a symphony
orchestra, music club, art museum, two ballet companies, and a concert
dance group.
Geographically, our city has the largest toll-free telephone system in
the nation. It has been called the City of Churches. We have 600
churches representing 40 denominations. Three commercial television
stations bring the three national TV networks to our city. The Atlanta
Board of Education owns WETV, the only educational television station
in the city. There are twenty commercial AM and FM radio stations in
metropolitan Atlanta and the Atlanta Buard of Education owns WABE, the
only educational radio station in the state. We have 159 parks and
recreational areas and in October when the freeway connector is completed in the center of town, you will be able to ride 40 miles south
and 40 miles north without encountering a stop sign.
Thirty thousand shops, stores and service organizations are within the
city limits for your convenience. ']:he city has more than 40 motion
picture theatres. There aTe 19 general hospitals and 10 special hospitals in metropolitan Atlanta.
Atlanta recently completed a twenty million dollar jet air terminal
that serves seven airlines with 465 planes arriving and departing
daily. And you may be interested to know that Atlanta is only two
hours by air from two-thirds of t he nation's population. A librar y
system, including a main library and 15 branches, will serve you.
Building goes a-pace on a new stadium and Atlanta expects in the very
near future to have a new auditorium. On the drawing board is the
Memorial Cultural Center that will enhance the cuitural life of metropolitan Atlanta and, indeed, the state. Also a six million dollar
area Vocational-Technical School will be under construction ar ound the
first of the year.
Atlanta ' s skyline is changing at a rapid rat e with the rise of new
skyscrapers. The latest on the drawing board is The First National
Bank which will be the tallest building in t he southeast. Measured
by pupil population, At lanta was the 16th largest school system in
the nation in 1963-64. Atlanta has 150 schools and over 7,000 children will enter kindergarten this year, Almost 110,000 school children
from kindergarten t4rough the twelfth grade will be enrolled in the
Atlanta School System in September. It takes approximately 40 million
dollars annually to operate the school system.

Honorable Sir:
Several weeks a go I read a statement made by y ou or someone
in your offi ce.
I h a "i to read it t wice to believe i t, hm-t-
ever it went something l ike this:"One hundred years ago
t he city of Atl qnta , Ga . was level ed to t h e ground.
Today,
W§ 've built an $18,000,000.00 stadium on SOUTHERN SOIL wi th
SOUTHERN LABOR and with SOUTHERN MONEY. 11
I want · to know WHY
you don 't man it with a SOUTHERNBASEBALL
TEAM ?
With a ll tha t SOUTHERN Gab, I fe el sorry for the Milwau . ee
Braves.
I hope they d on ' t bring any NORTHERN money wi t h them .
Would it be negotiable?
I am not a n young punk" neither am I a n "old crank 11 and I
don 't
usually get p rovoked enough to write "opinion" letters
but t hat sil ly-., chil~ish remark coming from the off ices of the
Ci t y Fathers was too much- so I wish you SOUTHERJ.'J LUCK.

Dear Ivan:
You have probably received many copies of the
enclosed article in Business Week. On the outside chance
that you did not, I thought you might be interested in
having a look at it.
We are all rooting for you. The news in the
paper yesterday morning was disheartening to all of us ,
yet I cannot help but feel that Milwaukee will realize
it has killed all chances for a profitable season next
year in that city, permitting the Br aves to be here as
promised, in the spring.
I would like to play a part in your endeavors ,
but you and Arthur seem to have the bases pretty well
covered.
With best regar ds , I am
your s ,

The Honorable Ivan Allen
Mayor of the City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia
My dear Mr. Mayor:
Congratulations to you on the concerted efforts you have put forth
in securing a Maj or League Baseball Team for Atlanta.
Knowing that you have received numerous congratulatory expressions
on this subject, it is my desire to extend warm, personal feelings because of certain factors involved.
As a classmate and personal friend of Mr. Henry Aaron, I talked
with him in person via telephone on October 23, 1964. During our conversation, he asked for a personal opinion concerning the r acial issues
in Atlanta. Having weighed the issues carefully , I informed Mr. Aaron
that I would collect a city survey from proper authorities.
In the meantime , I asked him to talk with Mr. Maye and at a convenient time, arranged by them, I would bring the results of the poll
ta.ken to Wisconsin.
This type of survey, I felt would give an opportunity to discuss
each phase of the city from many angl es as well as from several individual
points of view. Mr. Aaron, I am pleased to say, readily accepted m:y proposal.
In regards to the information concerning the survey, I would like to
discuss the matter with you personally i f such a conference can be arranged.
I would also like to secure materials, brochures, and other available
information pertinent to the matter of race relations in Atlanta.
I will be very grateful to l-tOU if you will give this matter your
serious consideration at a very early date so that I may be able to talk
with Mr. Maye and Mr . Aaron.
�The Honorable Ivan Allen - Page 2
There is also a possibility of Mrs. Aaron becoming interested in residing
in Atlanta.
Positive reactions from you, as well as favorable comments from other
prominent citizens, I feel, certainly will be important factors in determing
the future home of a family; especially when that family is connected with a
team that will be an asset to our city.
I hope to hear from y ou soon.
Very truly yours,
c. C. Williams

Dear Ivan:
I regret that I did not have an opportunity to see you while
in Atlanta. I did s ee a great deal of you in the newspapers
and on Television regarding the Braves.
I was greatly impressed with the progres s that has b een
made in y our wond e rful city and I hope to r e turn soon and get
togeth er with you.
Sincerely,

Dear Sir:
As more and more facts come into print relating the surreptitious dealings
between you and the present owners of the Milwaukee baseball franchise, I
become i ncreasingly impressed by the complet e disregard shown by both parties
for t he people a nd city of Milwaukee.
You, as mayor of Atlanta and principle
negotiator with the "fast Buck" owners of the franchis e, sought to i gnore an
exi sti ng contract between those owners and the county of Milwaukee as well as
the f ine support given the clup by Milwaukee fans .
I am sure you would not
want others to deal i rresponsibly in a f fairs relating to y our c ity, were the
situation reversed .
Certainly a mayor should act in an ethical manner not
only in his city, but beyond his ci t y and state.
Ati anta ' s desire for major
league baseball is no excuse to do otherwise .
A more honorable course would have been t o work for league expansion through
the league office.
In my opinion by failing to do thi s your a ctions have been
detrimental to both baseball and Milwaukeeo
I believe you owe both an apology.

Ivan Allen, Jr. , "Mayor"
11 City of Atlanta"
Atlanta, Georgia
Seems to us we have been reading in the press these days
about a shift of a major league franchise better known as the
"Braves" to a "city" called Atlanta. Somewhere in our geography
lessons we learned that this was a city down in a state called
Georgia, the land of peaches and peanuts.
Well, at any rate, we've been reading a few quotes of yours
in our papers here, and to say that we have been amused beyond
description is putting it mildly. To refresh your memory, here are
a few.
"Today we welcome the opportunity to become a symbol of
southern zest and drive, a major league city, a major league
state, and a major league region." Man, this Atlanta must be
qui te a place! After all the shenanigans which have gone on between Atlanta and these young owners of the Braves and the methods
used to effect the transfer of the franchise to Atlanta, about the
best we can say is that the whole business is strictly bush-league.
As for the above quote, up here in Milwaukee we call it BALONEY!
And quite a mouthful at thatl Careful now, don't choke.
Another quote. "I don't think anything has been handled more
properly and more above board. It is recognized that when a city
loses attraction for the club, it moves out." Come now, Ivan , you
don't really believe that do you? You couldn't! Don't you know that
from 1903 to 1953 there wer e no shifts in fr anchises until the big
money boy from Boston moved his club to Milwaukee in '53? And really,
there is no comparison with that move to the present luring of the
Braves to Atlanta.
·
During these years the minor leagues flourished to a reasonable
degree, but once fellows like Stoneham, whose attendance in San
Francisco this past season was nothing to shout about, and O'Malley
whose Dodgers collapsed this year, and Charlie Finley, whose A's
found it easy to land in the cellar, when these fellows decided to
head out in other directions, then came the gradual decline of the
minor leagues. If that last statement of the above quote is true,
then baseball can start screaming, "Look out below!" It's on the
way down and out now.
Another quote . In congratulating Atlantans for their courage
in building an 18 million dollar stadium you have been quoted as
saying, "They represent the new, dynamic south which is no longer
willing to be side-lined on the back benches." Wow, are those
vote-getting words. You ought to be a sure-fire winner in the next
election with statements like that. Yes, sir, Ivan, I'll bet they
really love you down Atlanta way these days.
�To continue. "Our stadium is a southern project, built on
southern soil (No kidding), with southern money, by southern
occupants and contractors. We feel it is uniquely fitting that this
decision has been made which marks almost exactly the centennial
of the day when Atlanta was left an ask-strewn ruin, symbol of a
region 1.s defeat." Isn't that tender! It almost drives one to tears.
How does it happen that Lou Perini isn't building your new
ballyard? Of course, he needs the money like a moose needs a hat-rack,
but after all, isn't Louis one of the owners of your new club? But
that wouldn't look good, would it? There are a few things we have to
keep on the level, aren't there?
And those words about "the centennial of the day when Atlanta
was left an ash-strewn ruin, symbol of a mm:Ib:mmm region's defeat."
Those words could prove to be providential. You could get the same
shoddy treatment from these young owners that we received, and after
they have "bled" you for all they can, they're just apt to dicker
under the table a year in advance with some other unsuspecting city.
Then you too will have a defunct ball pasture like we'll have. We're
planning on bringing back donkey baseball. What'll you havei
Back in 19)9 when John Quinn, now General Manager for the
Phillies, saw the light and left the Braves, the Braves brought in
a guy by the name of John McHale as Ueneral Manager. At that time a
respected and influential citizen of Detroit supposedly said, "The
greatest day in Detroit baseball dawned when McHale left Detroit and
went to Milwaukee." Well, fr om that day on the fortunes of the Braves
were never in sorrier hands. Now Johnny boy is leaving Milwaukee.
Hallelujah! And with him will go a couple of little boys from our
ne ighbor ing s tate to the south. Good riddance! I n our l ast will and
tes tament we bequeath them to you, with the hope that you won't be
11 takenr• l ike we were. So be careful and insist on a contract fo r
at
lea st thir teen years so that you can at least pay for your new
stadium.
We under stand you also made a pitch for the St. Louis Cardinal s
of t he Nati onal Football League , but weren't successful. Must be t he
Bidwell boy s II smelled a r at and wi s ely snubbed you. We understand you
had a tremendous crowd for an exhi biti on game the ~ardinals played
t here , and a wor se crowd when two t eams of the Amer ican Football
League played a game there . Where were all thos e Atlantans who, as
you supposedl y said "represent the dynami c s out h?"
And finally , don 't for get that chubby little rascal Warren Giles,
the so-called President of t he National League. What a boy! With
all the hot air he t hrows aroundm he reminds us of a cent ral heating
plant . In him , Ford Frick , and Joe Cronin baseball has the highest
type of poor leadership. When bas eball es t ablishes its "Hall of IllFame", we can tell you who will head the list.
With everlasting sympath~ to the players on the club, we remain
Very sincerely yours,
Former Braves Fans

Dear Mayor Allen:
I last wrote you on April 2, urging prompt construction of the stadium. I want to let you know that I
strongly support your continued constructive approach
toward making the best of the unexpected situation regarding
our Major League Baseball Team.
I am convinced that you
acted in full good faith, and that the Braves' officials
did likewise. It is unfortunate that legal action was
instituted. I believe that this was truly unforeseen.
I am pleased that you want to go to Milwaukee
to talk to the County officials and to try to work out
some arrangement that will give us some Major League ball
in Atlanta in 1965. If that fails, and I feel rather
confident that you will be successful , then I will support
a Milwaukee farm team next summer.
I again wish to express my deep appreciation for
all that you have done for Atlanta.
I am writing a similar
letter to Mr. Authur Montgomery who wrote to me last April
after I had written to you.
I urge that the stadium be named Atlanta Stadium .
Sincerely,
