LETTERS TO THE EDITORS:
'Sanders, Not All. n,
I
Speaks for the South'
I
The Editors: Mayor Allen's
assertion that "Congress can't
expect local governments oo
handle as difficult a problem
as this <integration) . . . with
no help, no definitions, no support" seems to me t.o be contrary to the opinion of the responsible l e a d e r s h i p of the
South, who want to preserve
our basic freedoms and for the
federal government t.o stay out
of local and stat.e affairs.
Wiflh more "responsible" leaders being elected all the time,
1Jhere will be no need for such
legislation, and indeed it can
only hamper the reaching of
" logical agreements" on the local level, where all such prol>lems should and must be solved
to have lasting and progressive
effects.
It seems to me that Gov. Sanders' progress and handling of
his state is exactly the leadership endorsed by Sen. Goldwa,.
tet· in order that the country
may get away from federal control and dependence on federal
financing. It's a shame that
they are on different political
t.eams.

The Editors: I , an Atlantan,
am ashamed to claim Ivan Allen ,as the representative of ~
city and community. Anyone
with normal sense can note that
Mayor Allen is using Atlanta
for his "st.epping stone" t.o national politics. This is the only
reason that he has endorsed the
civil rights program that President Kennedy has proposed for
our nation.

The Editors: Ivan Allen is a
disgrace t.o the great city of Atlanta. Anyone who heard his remarks t.o the Senate committee
should be up in arms to tar and

Anyone who would deliberately ·throw rights and freedom under the heel of a powerful government . . . shouldn't be in
