In 1946. Atkins got started in the cab
business at the corner of Franklin and
Graham. There, he put a telephone on a
pole, sat in a used car and waited for it to
ring. He later moved into a building
across the street Irom his present
location, and built the present structure
in the early 1950s.
Business is better than ever, he says,
and the town bus service has not hurt
hint a bit. In tact, he believe; that the
new night taxi service w ill be a success.
Atkins says he has always loved
driving cabs, although an illness keeps
him from it today. At any rate, he is his
most trustworthy dispatcher.

the Board of Governors had not done enough to

"We still have a dual system, and nobody wants

"The resolution is very broad, and I don't think
it was even necessary for this board toconsider."
Tucker said he did not vote against the
resolution because he agreed with parts of it.
