Ala (NEA) The popular notior of George Wallace as, a primordial subspecies endec in large part with the 1975 attempt on his life A wave of condolences has since whitewashed the Alabama governor's character, former enemies have buried their battle axes, national personalities have paid him high homage, and there is now the attempt his associates 'to elevate the one time Democratic nuisance to the status of national statesman National statesman'1 That, says a but honest member of the Alabama legislature, "is like trying to gloss over Archie Bunker George Wallace may no longer be the crude bumpkin of his infamous "segregation forever" era. but neither has two years of paralysis made him an Adlai Stevenson. "George is not even an Alabama statesman." says the legislator. "He is a campaigner, a damn good soidicr. But when it comes to the affairs of state he doesn't much give a damn." The opinion is shared by many in this state. The belief is that as an Alabama chief executive. Wallace makes a mighty fine national troublemaker. In two terms as chief executive, and two additional years stcwarding his late wife's governorship, fair critics say the Wallace impact has been encouraging at times, but more often spotty, questionable and seldom without a stiff price Wallace, to be sure, will have none ot the criticism Prior to his recent and highly successful primary bid for a third term (he won with 64 per cent of the vote the governor issued a 15 page "list oi accomplishments" which an aide now says could pages, or even pages, but we can't put down every little thing fapsulizing then, the Wallace paper records 20 areas of progress. Among them billions worth of new industry (S1.65 billion in 1973 alone) which has "lifted Alabama out of an agrarian a 156 per cent per pupil increase in education expenditures, a new free textbook program and the creation of 29 technical By TOM TIEDE First of three parts institutions and 18 junior colleges throughout the state: A doubling of the state's workmen's compensation benefits since 1963. a doubling of economic assistance to state mental health institutions, and general over all" improvements in the condition of Alabama's elderly, blind and disabled, and in its parks, highways and antipoilution programs.

The international monetary fund, the world bank, the various United Nations agencies and other kindred multinational institutions are joined in a desperate bid to prevent many of the developing countries from sinking under the weight of vastly increased import bills, not just for oil but also for food, freight and fertilizer. Not only are individual aid institutions redoubling their efforts, setting up special financial facilities and action programs, to help relieve the situation, but they are all being brought together to assist in the emergency operation launched at the UN general assembly's three- week special session on raw materials in April. Industrialized countries and other potential contributors have until June 15 to intimate what emergency assistance they intend to provide to help the most seriously threatened developing countries survive the next 12 months. Road" society of vore and the out at the elbows school system, the risky medical health structure, the middle ages mental health facilities the Wallace years have sureK been progressive But compared to much of the rest of the nation, the picture is not nearly so positive In fact, says respected Wallace watcher Ray Jenkins of the Alabama Journal, much of what the governor views as progress has merelv been water treading. His real record, says Jenkins, "has been one of higher faxes, economic stagnation, broken promises and industrial exploitation He has shafted the little guy." The Jenkins view may be Dvcrlv harsh Vet his point is an honest one: after 10 years of Wallace. Alabama remains ,it or near the bottom of all 50 states in some key quality of life statistics. Income. The median family income is three fourths the national average and per capita income (S3.724) ranks 48th in the nation. Alabama's wood cutters and textile workers (an average of a week for the latter) are among the lowest paid workersjn the country." 1970 census lists 20 per cent of ail family members as "impoverished Taxes. Though Wallace boasts nationally that state taxes are "the lowest in the nation." figures indicate otherwise In his first four years as governor. Wallace imposed S70 miiiion in tax increases, including a tripling of license tap costs and a doubling of driver's license costs Currently Alabamans pa> four per cent state sales tax plus up to 3 per cent city or counly (ax According to the Tax Foundation stale residents more in tax per SLOW income than Use 1972 naJionaJ average. Institutions. According lo 1ho Health Education and Welfare Alabama's school expendilures per pupil rank 50lh in the nation and its pay to teachers is 43rd lowest in 1he land A federal court ha? ruled state mental institutions so "grossly inadequate" as to violate the constitutional rights of palienls And despite Wallace rhetoric respecting "our honorable policemen." cops in Ihe slale are paid so poorly that somr have had to acquire welfare lood stamps. The same session of the assembly also resolved to establish a special fund under the auspices of the United Nations and supported by voluntary contributions, to provide emergency relief. It is supposed to start operating at the latest by Jan. 1, 1975. In addition, it was decided to set up a 36-member ad hoc committee to monitor and" assess the progress of the whole special program, and make recommendations about the new fund's scope, machinery and mode of operaton Dr. Paul Prebisch has been given the job of running the new fund. Among his first acts since being appointed has been to make a trip to Europe to galvanize potential donors into action He has also sent our a questionnaire to each developing country to try to determine which are in most desperate need The size of donations to the special fund is still uncertain However, an initial suggestion heard in United Nations corridors, (including a United States contribution of billion) now looks to have been ambitious. More recently, discussion has centered on an aggregate target of billion, made up of million each from the EEC and the United States: million from other developed nations and billion from the oil producers. In addition, against a background of food shortages, a deficiency in the supply of chemical fertilizer raises the spectre of a setback to farm crops in developing countries at a time when food shortages are already being suffered. Imports of fertilizer by developing countries represent 35 to 40 per cent of world trade in these products Their fertilizer import bill (including raw materials 1 rose from million in 1970 to about billion in 1973 These facts illustrate the awsome magnitude of the problem that the United Nations emergency operation will have to deal with green acres drive-in TUESDAY WED. and THURS.
