'‘|in Florida and the closed-door ATLANTA (UPI) — Guber- natorial candidates Howard (Bo) Callaway and Lester Mad- dox exchanged barbs Tuesday night when both addressed a meeting of the Georgia Muni- cipal Association, Callaway, a Republican, ac- cused his Democratic opponent of making wild promises to get himself elected and knowing full well the money would not be available to fulfill the promises, “The old saying that money doesn’t grow on trees apparent. ly hasn't registered with my opponent,’’ Callaway said, The GOP nominee specifical- ly accused Maddox of promis- ing an education group to give raise in the first year of his administration ‘‘but he failed to tell the public about this.’ ‘He failed to tell them they will have to foot a $200 million bill in four years to fulfill his He said Maddox also had | promised to triple the normal Lester, Bo Still Exchanging Barbs Both incidents were examples. of ‘Maddox’s irresponsibil- ity,’’ according to Callaway. The republican pledged support most of the major plat forms of the GMA including continuation of direct grants to cities, new sources of local rey- enue and tax relief for home- owners, Barbs Returned Maddox, who addressed the group later, let fly with barbs even more pointed than Calla- way’s. “Nothing but a fool would say he would take politics out of any department,’? Maddox said. ‘He (Callaway) either is a fool or thinks you are.’’ Callaway had pledged to take politics out of the highway de- partment, “Bo Callaway and the bank- ers that control him have climbed down into the gutter of hate,’’ Maddox continued, Then, half joking, Maddox said he had already been some- what successful in his bid for _| charged that he was offered one — | “Weltner has left Con s, Johnson has left the country, Martin Luther King has gone north and I has gone @arlier at Augusta, |!

Maddox said he could have picked up $50,000 in cash | in Angusta Tuesday had he agreed to go along with the bribe. Maddox said he refused to meet with the company’s rep- resentatives, It was the second time Mad- dox has claimed offers of large amounts of money.

HentHorNE, Jr.; Associate Editor BIBLE THOUGHT The Lord shall guide thee continually.—Isa. 58:11 Sickness In Georgia © TWO MEN in the State of Georgia personify the sickness the civil rights movement has brought to our politi- cal life in 1966. One of course is LESTER Mappox,. the new Democratic nominee for Governor who won last Wednesday's runoff primary with the help of a powerful white-backlash vote. The other is Mayor IvAN ALLEN of | Atlanta, one of the leading civil- rights moderates in the South and a Democrat. He calls Mappox “totally | unqualified” and says his nomination resulted from “ignorance, prejudice, reactionism and the duplicity of many Republican voters.” (In Georgia apparently there is nothing to keep Republicans from voting in a Democratic primary, and i’s believed many of them voted for Mappox in the belief he could be beaten in the November general elec- , tion.) Auten is one of the progressives of Atlanta who have tried to bring reason and goodwill to the problem of race relations, They have made | their City probably the outstanding ; showplace of racial progress in the South. But recently the new radicals fo- - ee ————— mented street riots in Atlanta and villified ALLEN as an enemy -of the Negro when he used police power to break up the fighting. That was a bitter moment for a man who had spent years trying to do constructive work in one of the most sensitive areas of human relationship. _ But that wasn’t the end. It wasn't enough that black power zealots ‘turned on a longtime friend of true civil rights; their fanaticism put fuel in the anti-civil rights political cam- paign of Mappox. So now we see the flames fanned by STOKELY CARMICHAEL and his fol- lowers burning down the structure of progress erected by men like Aten. And Georgia falls backward in race relations with the renomina- tion of an out-and-out segregationist who is best remembered for using a pistol and ax-handles to drive Negroes out of a cafeteria he once operated. It boils down to this: Between the extremists—CARMICHAEL types at one end and the MAppox people at the other—the Ivan ALLENS in Georgia are caught in a frustrating squeeze. They are victims of the new mili- tancy, just as is the cause of civil rights itself, Cian

  • Text: Atlanta,Georgia October ),1966 yor Ivan City Hall Atlanta,Georgia Dear Mayor Allan: First we wamt to say how much we love you as our Mayor of Atlanta and also for the wonderful way that you handled the racial disturbance on Boulevard recently. We certainly know that there would have been more trouble had you are gone over and settled it. Everyone loves you for your courage and act. But now, everyone is scared to death with the loss of Ellis Arnall as Governor and just a week hardly from this day and now it is Charles Weltner. How disbessing and everyone is so frightened that the thought of an indiot,insane ,unedcuated man who knows nothing but trouble and hate is about to take over, Oh God,please don'tlet this happen. Mayor Allan, we can't have him in the high office of our beloved State. It is tragic. Please do something to get him out of office,please,please do something. Don't you think that Charles Weltner would consider this,he is such a wonderful person and we would all want him. Please do something about this situation,impeach him or anything to get him out. You know Mayot Allan the Republicians voted for that idiot or he would not have had a chance. Isn't that the lowest thing to do, but they did it to get Esslis out. We are so afraid that he might get in with his smooth talking. We understand that he got a lot of votes too in the South Georgia area where the poor,dum people live and you don't know any better. It is a aufyl thing to happen to our State. Maybe the write in for Govenor would get him out. I beg you Mayor Allan,please do not let him come in.

  • Text: Walter B. Shiver P.O. Bex 749 Fert Myers, Fla, Sept., 30 1966 Mayer Ivan Allen, Jr, Atlanta, Georgia Dear Sir: First, I agree fully with your statement in regards to the election of Mr. Maddox. I write this to you in the interest ef common sense, and a plea fer sanity, if it can be ebtained. My backgreund, ten years military, studied and practe iced law - Navy, a discipline administrater and new an Acceuntanto The Civil Rights mevement and the racial riets are twe cemplete preblems, the first has been made inte law and in time will werk it self eut, but push it, mere preblems will be created, The racial issue or riets are riots, a fair but firm stand through law enfercement plus seme preblem solving will element that ill. But, it seems te me that the veting public has new let their emetiens beceme inflamed, with that, their logical appreach te the matter is hard te appeal te. Frem all the material I have read, and it started ceming eut in early 1966. The cheice of candidates was limited. The defeat of Mr. Arnold seems te be a defeat put-forth te President Jehnson,. As for Mro Maddex, that is just inflamed emetienal voting. You know this as well as myself, I am fully aware of the grewth ef yeur state and the economic stability you now enjoy. The state of Geergia ne lenger has to depend upen the seasiomal income eof the farmer. Cetten, peanuts, patetes, etc are of the paste (1) Geergia's ecenemic cendition, is knewn te you much better than myself, but I de knew that it is much better than the state of Flerida. We have our pro-= blems toe, but Georgia has too much te leese. Te myself, there is but one thing to de, protect the egonomic growth (money). Yeu new heave Mr. Maddex and Mr. Callaway to be elected in Nevember. As for Mr. Maddex, there seems to be a let ef deubt in his being an administrator. He has ceme out with a platferm of the broken record of Guide Limes, That point even if veted inte law, is deemed to failure and your state may well end up with a large deficit. Mr. Wallace's plain is going te emd in the same results. Plus being in the RED. The law is the law. Mr. Callaway, as I understand, is a man ei wealth in his own right. He then sheuld understand the laws ef econemics. Mr. Johnson violated them. My main peint is this, the natienal picture is net geod at the present time, nor dees it shew any signs of getting better, before it gets werse. The balance of payments are lagging by ten years, mere money is going eut, than ceming in. That account is eut of balance. What is ceming in, is fer geld. Inflatien is now a reality and will only increase. Next August will be felt hard. Then yeu will have a few measures to centrel these conditions, but at the ether end there is delfatien. One extreme to the other. Peeple are talking, writing, calling recessien, de= pression and inflation. Their ideals ef this con- dition are destorted. Its one extreme to the ether, but the middle ground is the problem. The natienal greuch is the ills or symptons, but the iLL is the gold and balance of payments. Please bear in mind, to fight a war on a long term basis, ene needs money, net paneer; but gold te back that paper up. Te save words and space, you are aware ef the cendition, if the people emetions sre inflamed now, just waite until their pocket beeks hurt. (2) Leoking st the national picture, ene that understands it, can very easily fecus it dewn to the state and lecal level. There are two examples I wish to suggest. 1. In Europe from last figures, they held 28-29 Billien in dellars. Gold on hand is 4 Billion for exchange, 10 Billien in reserve, giving a stetal of 14 Billion, That gold is drepping every month. Mr. Jehnson has entered inte agreements in this matter, and berrewed 4.5 Billion mere. Tetal 9 Billion in liabilities. It is rebbing Peter to Pay Paul, and is only a short term cures 2, The censtruction business has had 4.5 billion dollars pumped into it, the interest rates have been leveled eff, keeping them in line, but the banks are still shert of cash te lean, plus their interest inceme is still high. This money hes net been of tee much help, because the centractors can not berrew the needed money to start construction, No con- struction, no mertgages. Their picture is net bright. Ne wonder it looked like deficit spending. In Atlanta there are 40 saving and leans asseciatiens. Their picture should not be any brighter then others. If ene is going to wind up with a deficit, lets not meke it any bigger. Everything in the national pice ture will affect the states, down te the people. Some hew, some where = only you knew, Put these issues before the people, net this emetional race arguement. Te myself it is this, my stomach comes befere pride. My family argues the race issue, but net myself. When a client comes in to get the final results. If he has a prefit, I am the geed guy, if he is breke, I am the biggest SOB walking. The same applies te taxes. If I can be of assistance through writing, having on hand much material and facts, plus sending out articles all over. Please feel free te ask. I take no sildes, but bring out the issues, and never let upo (2) Just thinking eut loud. We now have a backlash pattern, just what started it, Your riet could have been aimed at swing the public frem one extreme to the other. Your law enforcement agancy couldn't be broken down, but the riets could enflame the emetiens of the vetes, making them swing to the other extreme, President Jobnsen is lesing faver, se there is one way to leek at it. This pattern is not new, it is quite eld. Hitler start- ed these ideas and mode them werk. Recall he got into pewer using emotions. Then he fought a war on others gold, Sincerély, alter B. Shiver W.

  • Text: Editorials Saturday, October 1, 1966 THE CHRISTI “First the blade, then Keeping In a lull during the Negro outburst in Atlanta earlier this month, Mayor Ivan Allen allowed himself to think aloud in the company of a television reporter as they walked through a troubled area on a morning after. What Mr. Allen said was to the effect that there were often excesses at a time of tumultuous change, but that this should not deflect society from its goal. This was the observation of a level- headed and far-seeing man. And it was all the more remarkable because the Mayor had borne the brunt of considerable abuse from the more activist Negroes involved in Atlanta’s troubles. Mr. Allen forecast, nevertheless, the ef- fect that this Negro outburst was likely to have on Georgia politics. This effect has now manifested itself in the outcome of Wednesday's Democratic primary elec- tion. Segregationist Lester Maddox tri- umphed over moderate Ellis Arnall, who was seeking to get back to the governor’s chair that he had once occupied for a term. This leaves the contest in November to two men whose views on race are not very far apart: Howard Callaway, the Republi- can gubernatorial candidate, comes from the same part of the spectrum as Mr. Mad- dox. In other words, the white backlash seems to have swept out of the running any moderate candidate for the Georgia governorship. There is little doubt that the turn that the Negro revolution has taken this sum- mer is having an effect on American pub- lic opinion as a whole. Figures quoted by pollster Louis Harris in a CBS television documentary this week showed strikingly how white attitudes toward Negroes have changed since the summer began. The sight of the goal trend already was apparent by June. By then, public opinion was split about evenly into “pro” and “anti”—a fall off from the euphoric days of not so long ago when sympathizers with the Negro revolution outnumbered resisters two to one. Ac- cording to Mr. Harris, the end of the sum- mer sees this proportion roughly reversed. Resisters to the current trend or pace of the revolution now outnumber sympa- thizers two to one. From Atlanta, attention now shifts to San Francisco. There—after Mr. Maddox’s success in the Georgia primary—the im- mediate question is whether this week’s outbursts in the Negro sections of San Francisco will swing back to Republican Ronald Reagan those votes which he was apparently beginning to lose to Democrat “Pat” Brown in the campaign for the gov- ernorship of California. Mr, Reagan is cut in a different mold from that of the victor in Wednesday’s primary in Georgia; but there is general agreement that in their respective states both he and Mr, Maddox have directly or indirectly sought the white backlash vote. For our part, we are inclined to go along with Atlanta’s Mayor Allen. Neither the outcome of the Georgia primary nor the regrettable and intermittent outbursts in the Negro ghettos of big cities is likely to deter American society as a whole from the goal which it has set itself — equal rights, equal opportunities, equal responsi- bilities for all. The goal has within itself its own dynamism. Human failings and human excesses may cause the caravan to falter or impose detours. But it has not turned back or disintegrated in its nearly two-hundred-year journey—and is hardly likely to do so now.

I congratulate you and many of my friends, unvocal though they remain at this time, have taken great heart from your gesture, We are not pleased with the choice (or is it an echo?) between Maddox and Callaway, We feel that Georgia is worth more than this, We have come too far from that kind of government and philosophy that these men represent and we have not come so far that we can afford to risk it, If Georgia is to remain an integral part of these United States and grow and prosper in accordance with its potential, we must have leaders we can trust; leaders of the caliber and stature of Charles L. Weltner,. We urge you to consider accepting a write-in draft for the gubernatorial election. We need a governor we can trust; a man who will ensure dignity for all men, a man who whll bring honor and dignity to the State of Georgia. A good man in a naughty worlds Charlex L. Weltner.
