Come* now a Bent who says a lot of us have been just wasting time Retting where we are because we'd be loLs better off right back in a cage with the monkeys at Municipal Zoo. Puleeic. Councilman John A While What's the .;ig idea! H took us humans a lung time to get like this. We've learned to knot a lie In the dark, we know all nhont the new look and what it looks like, w* could even tell you a thing or two about atomic energy and we are now living in houses with hot and cold running water. Don't you talk to ns about monkeys being better off, councilman. You shush up. That's just it, says Councilman White with no intention of shushing. Houses. And he's talking here right to you, Mayor William B. Hartsfield. "Ther are approximately 100 animals, including monkeys, at :!\e Atlanta Public Zoo. and they live in much better quarters than 162,000 people of Atlanta," says the Councilman. He knows. He's taken a census of the animal kingdom and whalY more. He's done some comparing oi living quarters. He's been everywhere except the lion's den. Studying Slum Clearance White is chairman of a special slum clearance committee of the Atlanta City Council and that's why he's digging np all these disturbing things. Are you listening, Mr. Mnyor? This fellow has sure been studying those animals. " a "We all favor sanitary condition? for the animals," he says, "but nol for the people who live in our slums." What's more, he says, there Is no disease, no crime, no delinquency- juvenile or otherwise—and no fire hazards at the zoo. nut the houses of the slum dwellers are different and he thinks Ihe anhimjs wouldn't ' dare swap places with the folks who live In some of them. While dosen'l like the action his committee has been gelling in cltj Council, HI all. Like Ihe time. hV says when Ihey tried to put. through a measure to employ five health anil five building inspectors to help with a cleanup program In the slums. That got all kinds of opposition. \i,\ laments, but when Ihe zoo asked for three more laborers to keep the home of the animals cleaner, thev were appioved in a jiffy. Councilman White Is mad. If.-, people or monkeys, says he with a battle cry look in !Us eye. And he's in favor of the people. "The public Is entitled to know- It some of their elected officials think more about the added comfort of the animals In Ihr 7.00 than they do about decent living place for: one-third of the people In this ' city. ' All right. Mr. Councilman. You go right ahead with your campaign for the people. And when you hear ot a vacancy at, the MO, will you please let us know?
