HUGNES, HARTFORD, ALA. m !\ m 2 George Wallace made a prediction back a few years ago, that the Federal government was set- ting out on a course to take over the public educational system in Alabama. He was the first. Of course, you know what happened. The hounds were on him. In nothing flat. He stood alone then. He was bloodied. Spit on. Yelled at. Jeered. Life threatened. Remember? Well, it didn't stop him. He took the Ala- bama message across America. He's been fighting ever since. And he's landed some pretty strong blows. Now he's winning. A lot of those same people who yelled and ~red, are now on his side. And they're trying mightily to steal his thunder. Congressmen. Senators. Southern Governors. And a Cabinet member or two. But George Wallace knows the battle isn't completely won. Not when they still want to bus your kids away from schools of their choice. George Wanace still has his sleeves rolled up. And Alabamians are still back of him. As strong aS ever. So, don't let anybody tell you there's nothing m,e can be done. hi, al Ol There is. 1~1 You can vote for George Wallace oncH Fifth.
