Honorable Ivan Allen, Jr .
Mayor of Atlanta
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia
Dear Mayor All en:
How refreshing it was to read your statement on the
results of the elec tion September 28th .! Every word of it was
true and I think you analyzed the situat i on exactly. Yo u are
t o be commended for having the courage to say it. The pity is
that others in high official position in our State and National
government a re silent in the presence of a possible catast rophe
facing Georgia.
As a Georgian I feel a s hamed before the world because
of what happened . As a lawyer, I shudder with overwhe lming
dismay at the thought that the nominee of the Democratic party
might have an opportunity to appointment more than one-half of
the members of the Georgia Supreme Court. Four of the seven
members of the Court are more than 72 years of age ; one is 75 .
Even the three youngest members are 6 2, 60 and 57 years of age
r esp e ctively.
·
Every Georgian will need to search h is own conscience
between now and the General Election. As for me, if I must
embrace Maddox t o save the Democratic party, it is not worth
saving in Georgia.
I hop e I shall have the pl ea s ure of meeting y ou
sometime .
Emor y F. Robin son
