Lester Maddox took a verbal gwipe at editorial cartoonists Tuesday by Introducing himself as "Lester, the cartoon character who appears daily in the Atlanta newspapers." The governor's remarks came In a speech to a civic club. Maddox, who on many occa sions has criticized Atlanta newspapers for what he terms "organized opposition" to his administration, told his audience "Some of you may not have recognized me with these little spectacles and my ears taped down.

The governor said he believes there is a lot of unconscious symbolism being put Into the caricatures of him and said the cartoonist, "in spite of instructions from an ultraliberal editor to 'make 01' Lester look as silly as you can, still lets a little bit of truth come through." Maddox said he is usually pictured in his shirtsleeves because "everybdoy knows I am a working governor and not just a fancy figurehead who looks pretty and talks pretty . . .

They do this because they know that Lester Maddox sees everything that is going on in this state, in this nation and in the world. The glasses which they give me are clear they are neither rose-colored nor are they black." As the cartoonists have noted, he said, "My ears are big the better to hear you with." "And," he added, "for the first tune in Georgia's history the little people as well as the fat cats have a governor who wil listen to them." Maddox warned of the dan gers of centralization in govern' ment, against what he called the ever-increasing threat of a Communist takeover of this country, and of those "who cannot see that the death of patriot ism in our hearts .... eventu- fr TKMICOLO' FMN WMEHMSTSHli IRIS iff FEATURES: 2:50-8:00-7:15 S;30 V- , , , v 4 h' t 73 COMPLETE SHOWINGS: 2:45-4:10-:lS-1:OS-8:30-IO:M NO ONC UNDER tS ADMITTED!
