Honorable Ivan Allen, Jro
Mayor, City of Atlanta

Dear Mayor Allen:

It is with inestimable pleasure that I drop you this
note of commendation on the forthright position your
testimony on the civil rights bill will reflect.

As we read your prepared testimony and the New York
Times! reports upon your replies during the colloquy;
we were impressed with the difference between a states-
man and a politician. We salute you as a statesman
imbued with e firm understanding of the moral values
underlying the civil rights issues,

If you can possibly find a ten-minute breathing space

in your Wednesday (July 31) schedule, I would be grate-
ful for the opportunity of a brief coaching session with
your. I am to appear before the Senate Sub-Committee on
Employment and Manpower of the Labor and Public Welfare
Committee to give testimony in support of § 773 and

S 1937 (the Clark and Humphrey Bills, respectively).

My prepered testimony has already been placed in the
committee's hands. I am advised that I am to give oral
testimony and participate in a colloquy following it.

Since this is my maiden flight before the august Senate,
I could profit from a brief conference with you who have
acquited yourself so well on this latest and earlier
occasions before the Senate,
Sincerely yours,

N Collinson
