describes the battle while military officials look on. Close by, protesters who wanted him to read

Associated Press News Analyst
George Wallace should not be
underrated. The former Alabama
governor is running a smart
presidential campaign and has
worried both Democrats and Re-
publicans. The odds aaginst a
third party candidate are great,
but Wallace is clever and a mas-
terful speaker.
It is usually agreed that Wal-
lace's potential to damage both
major parties is immense, even,
though no one seems sure whether
the Democrats or the Republicans
would suffer more. ,'
Wallace surveys the scene
"I think I'll hurt the Republi-
cans in the South and the Demo-
crats in the North," he says. "I
think I'll hurt the Democratic
party more."
So far few, if any, observers
give Wallace even an outside shot
at the White House.
But a Gallup poll credited him
with 13 per cent of the vote-
phenomenal for a regional candi-
date - even before he began to
And although he remains off i-
cially coy about his political future
-he hasn't formally announced
his candidacy-his backers aren't.
They're betting big money-his
campaign plans call for spending
between $10 million and $15 mil-
lion-that he can go all the way
as a third party candidate.
At 47, Wallace starts with a
curious but important distinction:
few in public life can stir such
heated emotions.
So intense are the feelings it's
almost impossible for most to look
at Wallace dispassionately.
But it should be done; already
he has a campaign setup rivaling
that of Gov. George Romney of
Michigan, who wants to win the
Republican nomination and is the
only other candidate unabashedly
seeking support this early.
Normally no one is more im-
potent than a politician out of
office, but routine rules don't
apply to Wallace. ..
Whether his wife, Lurleen, who
succeeded him as governor of Ala-
bama, makes some of the deci-
sions, as Wallace insists, or
whether he calls the shots, as
many suspect, isn't important. His'
base remains firm.
He attacks Democrats and Re-
publicans. 'There's not a dime's
worth of difference between the
two parties," he says.
He attacks the courts. "The Su-
preme Court has just about turned
this country over to the anarch-
ists. Nine men play God."
He attacks judicial decisions
which he claims protect the crimi-
nal and hamstring the police.
"You almost have to have a law-
yer with you when you commit a
crime in order to be convicted."
Wallace ignores a multitude of

problems confronting any modern
president. Should the space pro-
gram be slowed down? Would the
U.S. Post Office Department do
better as private business? Whatj
about,a tax surcharge? The draft?
Air and water pollution?
On Vietnam-which has caused
Romney so much difficulty-he is
hawkish without bothering over
details. "We should de-escalate
the war,' he says, "but the best
way to de-escalate the war is to
destroy the supply routes."
If, in any state, 34 per cent of
the voters are unhappy because
of unending civil rights strife, be-
cause of Vietnam, because they're
tired of President Johnson, may
these discontented people turn to
If the remaining 66 per cent
split evenly between Republicans
and Democrats. Wallace would

win all that state's electoral votes.
A minority president is nothing
new. As Wallace enjoys pointing
out, the most recent was John F.
Kennedy, who won with 49.7 per
cent of the popular vote.
The odds against Wallace are
fantastic-and those around him
know it. But nevertheless, the
planning goes on.
Wallace may run in a few pri-
maries, just to do a little hell-rais-
ing, but he concedes n'either party
is likely to accept him.
So he's more likely to go as a
third-party candidate, a road that,
since each state has its own com-
plicated election laws, can be so
rough as to be almost impassable.
Wallace likes to maintain that
the little people will shower him
with petty cash.
His backers concede they are
going to need big money, and

"The critical question of our
day ... is whether America and
China. are to engage in a land
war in Asia. The peril of escala-
tion of the Vietnam conflict in-
to that catastrophe . ..is real and
present," Harrison E. Salisbury
warned recently.
Salisbury, assistant managing
editor of the New York Times,
last year became the first Ameri-
can correspondent to visit North
Vietnam and wrote a well-pub-
licized and controversial series of
articles during his trip. He ex-
pressed dire predictions on the
possibility of war with China in a
book review in the May. 20 Newj
"Over a year ago I was told by
responsible Chinese that they were
preparing for war with the United
States-war which we would pro-
voke by our escalation in Viet-

nam," Salisbury revealed. "They
said that to their way of think-
ing Vietnam was merely a 'place
d'arms'-a jumping off place for
attack upon China."
Salisbury also noted that the
Chinese felt especially threatened
by permanent air and naval in-
stallations which we have built
in South Vietnam and Thailand.
Salisbury saw "a deadly paral-
lel with the events which brought
Chinese troops pouring in across
the Yalu River almost to drive
MacArthur and his men into the
sea." He noted that the problem
in Korea was American blindness
to Chinese warnings of possible
'Ostrich Mania'
He decried the scant attention
that similar warnings about Viet-
nam have received. "The very ex-
istence of the peril seems to be
concealed from the thought and
vision of the White House, Pen-

ietnam are the , same guerillas

As the Cong guns began crack-

nd the long line of Marines began
advance, the, remaining activ-

Vanishing Sunday Smiles,
Jolting booms began to come
with the crackles now. The sun
went behind ' the clouds and the
Sunday smiles began to vanish.
People held their ears and clutch-
ed their ribs as the advancing
marines hurled mortars at the
villagers. An army monoplane
dropped bombs, sending dirt flying
into the air and showering people
on slope.
The activists walked over a small
fence which set off the announcer
and a few men reviewing the ma-
neuver. They wanted Whittington
to read their literature as part of
the play-by-play.
A man in a straw hat who
seemed to be in charge met them
and said firmly, "We have a per-
mit for this park; you don't. Please
go back behind the fence. Please."
The activists pressed their point;
one began shouting about legalized
violence. "Please go behind the
fence. Please. Please," the man in
the straw hat pleaded again. He
got no response and the MP's be-

ing and shouting match with a
tearing a wrist watch off an MP.
'Rescue Mission'
By now the Marines had the
guerillas running full speed in re-
treat. And the helicopter landed
in the center of the marsh to con-
duct a simulated rescue mission.
Two marines deposited a mock
casualty in the helicopter and it
flew off.
More dirt showered the crowd
and the booming grew louder. A
final series of bombs sent the
nausea of a cloud of gunpowder
fumes onto the slopes, and the
people began to cough. The guer-
rillas reached the edge of the
marsh and the long line of Mar-
ines joined them. Whittington was
saying thank you's and inviting
everyone to free refreshments in
the park.
Operation Peace Power was now
over, and as the parents went for
coffee and lemonade, the kids
rushed out onto the marsh and
into the foxholes to gather empty
shell casings.

tagon and Foggy Bottom by an
ostrich mania, for closing ears,
eyes and minds to ominous facts."
American war with China could
come about in various ways.
Salisbury cited several possi-
bilities, saying war "might ensue
in response to a call from Hanoi
-a call which Hanoi's leaders
told me in January would be posi-
tively issued in event of a land
invasion across the 17th parallel,
an amphibious landing in the Gulf
of Tonkin or the carrying of the
war 'too close' to China's fron-
He continued, "Or it could come
by simple act of Peking itself,
moving to defend its concept of
national interest just as in the
Korean War. Is this likely? Judged
by the statements made by the
Chinese to me it seems not unlike-
Salisbury's assessment of the
danger of war with China wag
shared by two Demoeratic mem-
bers of the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.
Senators' Warning
Senators Albert Gore of Ten-
nessee and Joseph Clark of Penn-
sylvania warned Sunday that
Communist China's leaders advis-
ed the U.S. months ago that they
would intervene in the Vietnam
war if the U.S. invaded North
Gore said that China would en-
ter the war in either of two con-
tingencies: "One, if the United
States invaded North Vietnam
with a land invasion and two, to
prevent a capitulation of the Ha-
not government."
Clark added a third possibility:
"If we invaded China or bombed
