assistance and that the City of Atlanta will benefit greatly from
your participation with this group.
I had an interesting conversation with Stephen Currier, President
of Urban America, while at the meetingo Mr. Currier said he
was anxious to come to Atlanta and get a chance to me et you and
that his organization intended to assist our housing efforts in some
significant wayo Although he wasn't sure as to what form this
assistance would take he indicated very keen interest and the
desire that they do participate. As you know, Mro Currier 1 s
main occupation is giving away his money and I think we are in
an ideal position to offe r our services in seeing that some of it
gets spent for the best possible good of mankindo
