Is one student who Isnit supporting revolution this election year. Instead he a for god. Country and George Corley Wallace. Just ask his automobile. The Blue station Wagon is a motorized propaganda Center for Wallace conservatism. It has a second skin of sticker slogans. Some samples in a a secret member of the John Birch o u 11 a w criminals not let George do for Christ not put Stokely Back in a Hutton whose Only regret is that he has but one vote to give to his candidate is obviously an uncommon political activist. Few people of any age paste 27 separate bumper posters on their motor vehicles. But his philosophy is not entirely uncommon among Young people Here in the deep Hutton insists that substantial numbers of Young americans Are working for Wallace. He says the fact is not generally known because a a the to and the newspapers Are always too Busy publicizing the new left Wallace Campaign officials agree. The newsmen always play up the students for Mccarthy a says a Wallace aide and sure All the Long haired pimply ones Are for him but the clean Cut Young people in the nation Are for George the statement is debatable of course but it appears to have some foundation. Several Hundred students do work directly with the Wallace Campaign and very nearly All of them Are Clear eyed Short haired and proper. Seventy of the students travel with the Wallace caravan. Pretty girls husky boys. They have becoming smiles and say a yes sir and a thank they do not smoke in Public. They do not swear in Public. They Are probably the Best thing Wallace has going for him. They act As his Good will ambassadors his Public relations and his moral support. Undeniably they have won the candidate votes. Wallace uses the South corps wisely. One of his complaints is that a unwashed and unruly students Are responsible for much of the nation s woes and so he Points instead to his freshly scrubbed orderly supporters. None of his Young people he indicates is dodging the draft criticizing Vietnam. Noting on College campuses fomenting anarchy or mugging Little old ladies in the streets of the nations cities. Look at them he encourages straight backs shining hair hard Wor King and enthusiastic then he adds look at some of the other students. Often As not he wins his Point recently for example a group of Young hecklers interrupted a late evening Wallace speech. The tormentors went overboard. They hissed and used profanity. Eventually their tactics sickened the rest of the audience Wallace youth on the other hand made no move to Stop the hecklers. Acting on orders they turned the other Cheek and stood patiently to the Side. Finally the hecklers got up in Masse. A go to hell George a As they left Wallace students politely opened the exit doors Wallace shrugged a there go the free speech and the audience was left to its own conclusion. Nonviolence is to be sure an awkward Art for some of the Wallace student Force. They Are not exactly pacifists. And As they say a frankly we d by nothing better than to bust some of those creeps in the but they done to. Because to do so would result in dismissal and though the salary Isnit Good most Are unpaid Wallace workers say they enjoy their jobs. Why a Well a says Bill Hutton of the University of Massachusetts a i believe in gov. Wallace i believe in working for a living so does he. I believe you can to legislate love so does he i think hell make a great president of this ifs easy to be for Mccarthy you know because he s offering everybody a Quick Way out of Vietnam. But if s not so easy to be for Wallace in fact ifs hard to be for Wallace and maybe that a the reason we i Here s another bumper slogan Wallace a youth coups is probably the Best thing he has going for him. He likes to compare his clean Cut Young supporters with the a unwashed and unruly students he sat a Are responsible for much of the nations troubles
