Letter from Earl Johnston Junior to Honorable Frank de Barber February 4, 1964.<br />
<br />
The letter is on Mississippi state sovereignty commission letterhead which list the address as new capital building, Jackson, Mississippi governor Ross are Barnett, chairman<br />
<br />
It is addressed to Honorable Frank D Barber, special assistant to the governor, the capital, Jackson, Mississippi<br />
<br />
Dear Frank:<br />
<br />
I’ve read with interest you enclosure from Dr. Claude a Fike pertaining to an anti-communism Institute for teachers. This appears to be an excellent idea it would certainly be far more effective than occasional seminars in Jackson or speakers address small audiences, who already believe in what the speaker has to say.<br />
<br />
In my recommendation to Governor Johnson for sovereignty commission program during his administration, I mentioned that we could operate affectively on $200,000 for the biennium instead of $250,000 under which we are now operating in the $225,000 recommended by the budget commission. This could be done only if the sovereignty commission can use its funds for its own administrative programs and support of such necessary projects as the anti-communism institute. Under my proposal, we can afford the $5000 per year to match the $2000 in outside support mentioned by Dr. Fike<br />
<br />
Sincerely,<br />
<br />
Signed by Earl Johnston Junior. Director
