The Metro Charter Commission has heardmuch highly beneficial testimony as to
the
basic l
form
of
government
it
should recommend.
Ofthree
possible forma, the question
at
this
pointseems
to
have narrowed
to
two:
the
council-man
ager or
the "strong mayor" plus council.Involved

In a
mayor
with a council providing some
111lderable
degree of
ch~ks
and balances.Purely
as
a matter of Interest, this newspaperasked a noted authority, Robert Moses,
for
com
ment
on this
question
as
It regards Chattanooga.
One
of
the
world's ·moat respected planningauthorities, Mr.
Moses
for more
than
40
years
hasaerved In a dozen
or
more capacities
In
the
city
and state
of
New York. Parks, parkways, portauthorities
are
but
a few
of
his specialties. Pa.riclan-born, the

has said:1"He has alwaya
been
the strong man under all. . . mayors, always looking
far
ahead of
the
cur
rent
visible objectives, impatient
with
those
who
disagree
with
him but free
of
bitterne88 whenthe battle
Is
over."
At
a Washington meeting of
the
American
So
ciety of Newspaper Editors several years ago,Robert Moses was
one
of
the speakers,
at
a timewhen
the
metropolitan government Issue ap·proached
the
American scene.
He
expresseddoubts, In
thelast
analysis, about the manager
fonn
of government
in
the larger cities.
As
to
Chattanooga? Here
Is
his broad
and
general comment,

Dear
Mr.
Donovan:
ROBERT
MOSES
PRESIDENT
I have your letter
of
March 28th with
reference
to prices
at
the World's
Fair.
What you propose
is
out
of
question.
Had
you
read
thelegislation, contracts, proceedings and financial arrangements for the Fair,which have long been a matter of public record, you would have seen that
we
cannot reduce the basic admission
charges
in the manner you
suggest~
Any-one can urge reducing charges and
tolls.
This
is
always a popular procedure,and there
are
always agencies, publications and L"ldividuals
who
will supportsuch demands regardless of their legality and practicality.The
Fair
is
a private
enterprise
on
City land, built by agreementwith the City.
It
has issued notes which must
be
repaid.
-It
has other obliga-tions which
must
be
met, and
in
the end there must be enough of a balanceremaining to meet all claims, repay City advances and complete the
Park.
It
must
be
obvious that
if
we reduced charges for City publicschool children, they would have
to
be
reduced for innumerable other groups,and
the
result
would
be
the financial collapse
of
the
Fair.
Let me also pointout that, measured by
prices
charged for anything approaching the show
at the
World's
Fair,
ours
are
very
much lower, that a
very
considerable
part
of
all
our exhibits are
free
and that
it
is quite inconceivable that any
very
largenumber of children will be excluded
by
our admission charges, especially
if
arrangements.
are
made in advance to take advantage
of
the
low
advance sale
prices.
There will also, of course, be a tremendous amount of valuableprinted
matter
distributed free by our many exhibitors.Sincerely,
",>
