Hon. Iva n All en,
Atlanta, Ga .,
Dea r Mayor All en,
It was my fortune to see a nd hear
your most disgusting and uncall ed f or diatribe on
C BS in which you expressed your opinion in no
uncertain t erms about the result of the re cent
primary in Georgia.
Ther e is no one who is so intoler ant of other peoples opi nion a s a defeat ed "Liber
who calls himself a " Modera te". I t seem s t>to
me that quite a large percentaee of the populati>on
of Georgia is
a fact which I have
never noticed in visits to your city and s t a te.
Mr. Maddox who started from scratch and by his

I have read that it was inherited.
Under your wise " gtlidance
Atlanta has become a "Mecca
only to Washington, D.
c. ;

majority they will kick the moderate white man
out and take it over themselves.

make thousands of votes for Maddox in the coming
genera l election. I had been hoping that Calloway
would win in November but with the rea ction from
you, Mc Gill and Martin Luther King whi ch has
appeared in the papers, on radio and televison
there might be such a back lash that Calloway
wi ll be defeated. Anywa~ either of the Canida t es
will be better than your beloved Ellis Arnall.
Very Truly yours,
