Racial Problem Discounted

Mayor Allen was asked about
reports that some Negro mem-
bers of the Braves team, and
in particular Hank Aaron and
Lee Maye, did not want to move
to Atlanta because they feared
racial discriminations.

He replied:

“Both Hank Aaron and Lee

Maye are great ballplayers.”
They've made tremendous con-
tributions to the league they
play in. I am certain they
would fing Atlanta a most re-
ceptive tow nand that once they
try it they will be exceedingly

The Penn State game last
week, for which the Orange is
keyed up annually more tha

battering one and also drained
the team emotionally. It was
not won by Syracuse until the
last minute.
