It is almost unbelievable that we have come from excavation to public exclamation over the Atlanta Stadium in less than twelve months. And exclamation is a conservative way to describe public reaction to the Stadium as 60, 000 visited it during the past two weekends. 30,000 more are expected to view it thiw week- end. We are looking forward to welcoming the Braves - - players and management -~ to Atlanta one week from today.

The President is appreciative of your inter- est in writing him about these events and while it is too early to know about the possibilities for the spring of 1966, it is apparent from the schedule that is developing for the summer that he will be unable to accept the July invitation. Although I do not want to be unduly encourag- ing about the possibilities for next year, you are welcome to renew the invitation, if you wish, about three months in advance of the date.

To obtain maximum interest in the Atlanta Braves -- locally, statewide, regionally through the entire market area, and nationally, It is this year's biggest baseball story. Gaining momentum from all that is done, this operation is a prime generator of maximum favorable attention for Atlanta. Our major objective, then, is to pivot this exciting baseball team and its home city on a 360 degree swing of visibility surpassing any attention any city has received in the past. XERO | /XERO : ‘cory pScEy Atlanta Braves Opening OM-2 ; INTRODUCTION Atlanta and the Braves are linked together; what helps one on opening day supports the other. We have a brief period of time in which to build a strong local ‘penae of this joint destiny. We have a brief period of time to help the entire Atlanta metropolitan area re-capture and put on a continuing basis, the sense of active pride in the Braves they had when the team signed to come here, and which was so manifest as the Stadium itself was completed and opened. All of that was preparation. It was passive, as far as the entire populace was concerned. We asked them to beam with pride, and they did. Now we ask them to move into effective action: to talk up the Braves, to support the Braves, to realize in so doing that all of this effort demonstrates to the nation at large that Atlanta is the city of spirit and "can-do" in the entire United States.

The business community is in City Hall. It is in office with the largest plurality ever given a Mayor of a major city. Now that Mayor needs votes again .--- in the form of an all-out effort in behalf of Atlanta's reputation when the eyes of the nation are on this city opening night, April 12. Essentially, that is what the plan of action on the following pages is all about. Bell & Stanton, Inc.

However, big thoughts are a futile exercise in mental gymnastics unless supported with practical follow-through.. We need the help of all sorioaenad to make certain we have both, for only the thorough execution of this big job in the end will win the day for Atlanta and for the Braves. 1. It is urgent that we get Atlanta into action on season ticket sales. This will take personal contact from the highest levels of the Atlanta business community, directed toward the highest levels of the Atlanta business community, plus efforts at that same level aimed at business leaders in other market cities. 2. We need to start the ball rolling so that every ad carried in the early part of Opening Week refers to the Braves; every downtown office building takes on the challenge of creating banners; every local theatre enters the act; every school and college hereabouts becomes involved, as does every taxidriver, every bus driver, every member of the police force.

Wute aay ee é writers covering the Bedgers-Braves exetetreten series TV AA, ABenady, are Te 27 ala-26, Bell & Stanton will invite travel and general feature writers to Atlanta at that time. Plans call for them to see a game, be given personalized tours of the city, and be guests at a superb dinner hosted by Atlanta Newspapers, Incorporated and Jack Tarver. We have already begun working with the national magazines; Look Magazine will be here on assignment right after Washington's Birthday as a first step. We need to get national television, including network news shows. The "Today" Show should broadcast from Atlanta opening day, on the day after, or both. We need more press association series on Atlanta and its team; the hassle with Milwaukee has made this the biggest sports yarn in years. 4. We need to have the cream of Atlanta's business community take on the task of personally inviting the very top leaders of the nation to be their house guests over Open- ing Day. Every branch of a national firm should have its national president here. This is far more than a baseball game. It is Atlanta's day in the court of public opinion when everything that makes this town great is on display.

We need help in pulling our loftiest national political leaders here, and that need goes right to the top. We need all southern governors and many mayors here. 6. We need to get glittering celebrities here, and we shall call on Bill Bartholomay personally to guide and help us on that. We will call on Gabrgis advertisers who use personalities in their campaigns to have those celebrities here. And of course baseball's officialdom is a vital part of the program. 7. We need to mount a Mayor's Dinner on the eve of the Big Game which will show the greatest out- pouring of Atlanta's elite--and the nation's well-known figures--that Atlanta has seen since the 1939 premiere of "Gone With The. Wind". 8. We need a parade Opening Day afternoon which will be unforgettable in Atlanta's annals. We see this as featuring every high school and college band in the area, each band sponsored by an Atlanta- area business firm; Braves and Pirates stars; the Mayor; The Governor; celebrities. XERO (more) XERO |xXERO . | coPyY ‘COPY XERO ACOPY Atlanta Braves Opening OM-7 (Summary of Recommendations continued) The bands later go to the game with tickets paid for by their sponsors. Who ever heard of such generosity and spirit on the part of business leaders? It takes Atlanta to put this over. 9. We need to coordinate with Pittsburgh isaders to get a representative Pittsburgh group here. We need to get plans started as well for the Atlanta leadership to be in New York Friday, April 15, when the Braves open the Mets' home season, and in St. Louis, Thursday, May 12, when the Braves open the new St. Louis stadium. This is the essence of the bold but simple program which we ask Atlanta to support. As we write today, we cannot estimate costs pracicakys If all who come to the Mayor's Dinner pay substantially more than the $7.50 cost per head of the affair, we can obtain part of the needed funds at that time. Atlanta will spend what is needed, regardless of where the funds come from, we are confident of that.

One thing must be clear: this over all is Atlanta's challenge, for in saluting the’ entry of the Braves, Atlanta salutes itself and she shows the nation once and for all, the kind of fibre that makes up this remarkable community. + # + ixERO cOoPYT xERO gcory } Atlanta Braves Openin OM-9 ; DETAILED PLANS In the section that follows, we list specific plans, with complete assignments. The Bell & Stanton public relations organization is charged with working closely with the Chamber, with the Braves, and with all other involved groups and individuals. We must aKé to the action of each committee. Overall supervision will be the responsibility of the firm's president, Alan Bell, from New York, and of Senior Vice-President George Goodwin from the Atlanta office. The specific Bell & Stanton executive under them will be David Pearson of Atlanta. Already the Chamber has offered to lend the firm extra manpower as evidence of strong support. Extra people as needed will be employed on a temporary basis if the pace builds up too swiftly. In any event, additional staff from the New York Bell & Stanton office, headed by Executive Vice-President Edward Stanton and by the New York account executive for "Forward Atlanta," Margaret Larson, will be closely involved at all times. XERO | XERO XERO coPY | 7 ;COoPY \eoey Atlanta Braves Opening OM-10 SEASON TICKET SALES The Assistant General Manager of the Braves, Jim Fanning, has led a task force which already has sold some 3,000 season tickets during the course of an intense area campaign over months. It is only now, after Fulton Superior Court Judge McKenzie has spoken, that it is possible for anyone to be able to go all-out on this. Season tickets should be sold to every business organization in this area, for use of its employees and customers. This sales need comes at a time when the Braves organization must turn its attention more and more to spring training. The community can -- and we suggest, must -- help put across this sales effort. 1. We suggest that Mayor Allen assemble in his office a group of leading businessmen to take over on this project as they would on any emergency, for we approach crisis when we have sold so few season tickets this close to Opening Day of our first Big League season.

The five major bank presidents B. The president of the Sales & Marketing Executives Association 3. If the Mayor agrees, the banks should be asked to use their contact officers, both from the main office and from branches. These officers should contact all corporate customers, urging those customers to buy season tickets to be used by their executives, by their employees, and by their customers. The contact officers should take specific ticket orders -- with no money changing hands. A senior officer in each bank should receive these orders and should relay them to Mr. Fanning of the Braves, who will fill the orders and bill the purchaser direct.

Mr. Fanning, for his part, will. supply daily lists of new purchasers to all bank supervisory officers involved. Mr. Fanning will supply all contact officers with adequate supplies of season ticket brochures and ticket order blanks. He also will see that ticket sales personnel is available at the Stadium to serve purchasers who want to select seats in person. As a final point: ere should be constant radio and TV publicity on progress aign, not dissimilar to the UCA mometer idea.

Insofar as is feasible, every advertising message placed locally beginning with Easter Sunday, and continuing through Opening Day (the following Tuesday) should salute the Braves, or otherwise speak of them. B. We would hope all concerned would explore the possibility of a special section to be eats in both newspapers on opening day. This would be something to be pulled out and saved. It would be filled with news and advertising material suitable for such a special section, commemorating the day Atlanta Goes Big League. (more) XERO | XERO | | XERO : qcoPyY cory! ‘ copy
