Wallace: a politician changing
with the winds over 11 years
By LLOYD TIMBERLAKE
NEW YORK (Reuter)-Alabama
Governor George Corley Wallace,
who crowned a black homecoming
queen at the University of Alabama
recently, is the same Wallace who
almost 11 years ago told his fol-
lowers: "Segregation now, segre-
gation tomorrow, segregation for-
There have been other changes
in Wallace's life since then. When
he recently received a standing
ovation from the Southern Associa-
tion of Black Mayors-an organ-
ization which did not exist 11 years
ago-he spoke from a wheelchair,
the result of an attempt on his life
in Maryland during a presidential
primary 18 months ago.
The other major change is the
fact that the governor was running
in presidential primaries-and win-
ning many-at all. In the early
1960's the small, scrappy Wallace
appeared destined to follow the
fhotstens of other southern go'er-
nors who captured national head-
lines briefly by blocking school-
house doors to black children, then
dropped from sight.
Yet in 1968, running on a third
party ticket, Wallace captured 12
per cent of the national vote.
In 19~2 his attacks on the busing
of school children to achieve racial
integration had President Nixon
paying close attention to his
"southern strategy" and the Demo-
cratic candidates leaning more to
the right than they would have
Can he now, from a wheelchair,
run a national campaign? And if
he tries, how will he handle the

his office daily in the afternoons.
And, most important, his aides for
months have been making contacts
to raise the money for such a race.+
At present, only State Senator
G ne McLain, has announced
against him and McClain is given
little chance to dethrone Wallace.
Of more immediate concern is a
highway funds scandal, in which1
the governor's brother Gerald has
been linked in the press to a deal
which allegedly involves $100,000
paid to a phoney machinery com-I
pany on the basis of state purchas-
A grand jury was to begin hear-
ings on the case in mid-December.
Should the scandal explode, other
candidates are sure to jump into
the race against Wallace.
But there is more sneculation in
the state over how Wallace will
handle the race issue than over
how he will handle the funds alle-
gations. He has weathered scan-
If Wallace is looking toward the
19~6 presidential race, it might be
with some optimism. If the Re-
piblicans are still reeling from
Watergate, if the Democrats have
not recovered from the carnage
of the McGovern campaign, if the
energy crisis has put the "man on
the street" actually on the street-
out of his car and out of his job-
then the basic Wallace speech, an
attack on a sinister, expensive and
bumbling "big government," could
find a receptive audience across
As for the governorship, Wallace
may decide by 1974 the "bloc vote"
is too big a reality to be on the
wrong side of. In a stormy political
career, Wallace has been accused
of many things, but never of being
a less than shrewd campaigner.
But right now, for every Ala-
h a'uuan-white or black-who no-
ticed that Wallace crowned the
black homecoming queen, and call-
ed her "beautiful," another noticed
he did not kiss her, a marked de-
parture in the usual political ap-
proach to babies and homecoming
