Aroused by the conditions revealed in the recent grand jury investigation of municipal graft and corruption independent voters of Atlanta have organized the “1930 Club” of which Julius Boehm, a prominent insurance man and social worker, was today elected president.

The club is planning to enter candidates for all offices in the forthcoming primary elections. Mr. Boehm accepted the presidency against his wishes but when all the other candidates resigned he was elected by acclamation.

The “1930 Club” is the outgrowth, and includes many of the leaders of the citizens’ movement, that aided in the city-wide graft probe with the subsequent indictments and trials now under way.
