EYE ON '76
Wallace fiqhts to recover

Continued from Pnge)s
tonic that his doctors heartily
prescribe.
HE READ Bremer's diary while
he still was hospitalized at Silver
Spring, Md., and learned that the
young man had been stalking
him. He talks about the shooting
now almost as though it happen-
ed to someone else.
Wallace never has talked w
Bremer, but says he has for-
given him and hopes that the
young man, described as a "lon-
er" by his Milwaukee neighbors,
has asked forgiveness for him-
self.
Although he has had a year's
bout with pain that sometimes
drains the color from his face,
Wallace still has a sense of nu-
mor and occasionally can make a
joke about the shooting.
HE SAID doctors told him that
if he had known he was going
to get shot that day he should
have been naked and hungry.
Ile said his clothes and ight
lunch complicated theasurgery
to remove the bullets.
Wallace, who will celebrate his
54th birthday in August, h a s
lost all hopes of being able to
walk. Now shriveled to about
half their normal size, his legs
are only dead weight because of
the spinal cord injury siffered in
the shooting. ie exercises on
braces and sometimes on crut-
ches but that is only designed to
help the circulation in the rest
of his body. He can stand only
with support.
While critics were reluctant at
first to say anything against Wal-
lace after the shooting, s o m e
have since said he seems incap-
able of running the state a n d
certainly should not consider a
third id for president.
HOWAEVER, Wallace has shown

no signs of throwing in the poli-
tical towel. When he was told
he had won the Maryland and
Michigan primaries the day af-
ter he was shot, he grinned.
ILess than two months after the
shooting, he flew to the Demo-
cratic National Convention at.
M1iami Beach. He was unable to
sway the delegates controlled by
Sen. George McGovern, but he
felt as though he had made his
point later when McGovern was
crushed in the election.
Wallace's associates think he
will try for the presidential nom-
ination again in 1976, refusing to
let his wheelchair knock him out
taP the political arena.
EVEN BEFORE 1976, Wallace
has to make another big political
decision - whether to risk ano-
ther gubernatorial race for an
unprecedented third term. His
friends say there is no decision
to make; they say he already has
made up his mind to run and only
has to decide on his strategy.
A local newspaper, the Mont-

gomery Advertiser, has been crit-
ical of the Wallace administra-
tion since his 1963-66 term, and
its editor-publisher, Harold Mar-
tin, suggested Wallace resign :,)t'
health reasons. Martin charg'd
that a group of parasites had
moved into the driver's seat and
was going to bring disgrace to
Wallace.
Wallace still runs the execitite
department, he and his staff in-
sist.
"WE CAN TELL he is j u s t
about back to normal," one aide
said. "He isn't meek anymore
when he asks that somethir. be
done. He just tells you and he
wants action before he gets off
the phone."

keep him out of the 1976 pres-
