The Podium was ;a good fifty
feet from the chain link fence that
held back the homogeneous crowd
yet the advance men had bridg-
ed that gap and created a crowd
equally as enthusiastic as any
created by traditional political
hand shaking. The crowd consist-
ed of two factions; the true Wal-
lace supporters, and the hecklers
who, according to Wallace, were
in need of a good barber. Be-
fore Wallace spoke, the polarized
gathering listened to country wes-
tern music, and contributed hard
earned dollars to Wallace via the
Wallace girls who circulated in'
the crowd.
George Wallace is not a tall
man and a good many views were

blocked by the numerous micro-
phones which recorded the ad-
dress. This was a short stop for
Wallace and he delivered his stock
speech. He spoke of the issues that
rang true to the crowd of sup-
porters; returning control of the
government from the intellectuals
in Washington to "folks like yob.
and me," stopping the "anarchist
movement" that made the streets
unsafe for the working man," and
winning the war militarily if the
Paris peace talks failed. The
hecklers were effective enough to
cause Wallace- to lose his place
twice but also gave him the op-
portunity to cut them down." If
3ny of you anarchists lie down in

front of my car, it is going to be
the last one that you'll even want
to lie in front of."
As Wallace walked off the plat-
form, there was a short scuffle be-
tween a few negro students, some
police, and a few Wallace sup-
porters. As a result of the con-
frontation, numerous heated de-
bates started between Wallace
backers and those who opposed
him. These debates were broken
up by the police, and the two fac-
tions dispersed without further in-
cident. Yet one wonders what
would happen if some of those
anarchists actually did lie down
in front of the George Wallace
