Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDQE HER AID-Thursday, February 20, 1975 WALLACE Wallace still in running By PETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON (CP) -Ala- bama Gov. George Wallace is used to snide remarks from Northern slickers and proper deference from his fellow Southerners, so it was something of a novelty to have the governor of Mississippi writing him off this week as a 1976 candidate for the United States presidency. It's probably too early by a long shot, however, to count George Corley Wallace out as either a power in the Demo- cratic party or a shake-'em-up influence in American politics. Gov. William Waller of Mis- sissippi, here for a national conference of state governors, startled the political corps in Washington on Tuesday by saying that, in Waller's Deep South state, Wallace "is not considered to be a viable potential candidate because of his disability, or physical in- firmity." The wheelchair-bound Wal- lace, who trounced both Re- publican Richard Nixon and Democrat Hubert Humphrey in Mississippi when he ran as an independent for the presidency in 1968, flexed his muscles and replied: "Yes, I am a viable candi- I became a candidate. As long as we have this in- iquitous income tax that's grinding the middle class out of existence, I'm going to be alive and well and involved." Although he is said to be several months away from an- nouncing a formal decision about the 1976 presidency, Wallace has been building a war chest that is fatter than that of any other announced or likely Democratic nominee. Campaign finance reports filled in Washington show that Wallace fund raisers had gathered nearly million in 1974, most of it in con- tributions of less than from supporters who were treated to some of the most elaborate and professional direct mail appeals yet seen in U.S. politics. Wallace has maintained a nucleus of tireless campaign workers. His vivacious wife politically- savvy niece of former Alabama governor James proving an impor- tant energizer for the gover- nor's ambitions. Wallace tried for president as an independent in 1968, then ran for the Democratic party nomination in 1972 before be- ing paralysed from the waist down by an assassin's gunfire at a Maryland shopping centre. He was re-elected to a third four-year term as gover- nor of Alabama last November. His 1972 campaign, which dismayed his fellow contenders for the Democratic nomination, was based on the slogan. "Send them a message." The message was based mainly on opposition to school busing for purposes of racial integration, an issue that was inflaming much of the white electorate at that time. Wallace rode its crest to some astonishing upsets in Democratic primaries not only in the South but also in such Northern states as Mich- igan. With the American economy itow in its most dis- tressed state in decades, bus- ing has all but disappeared as a talking point and the 1976 campaign is likely to focus on pocketbook issues. However, Wallace has already built up political capital in that field, too. Critics may carp at Wallace's failure to do much for the impoverished in his own dirt-poor state, but the governor's appeal has rarely been based on what he has done so much as on what he stands for.
