    Background: A THOUSAND UNIVERSITY STUDENTS CHEERED AND WHISTLED A GEORGE WALLACE CAMPAIGN MEETING INTO DISORDER IN SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, ON MONDAY NIGHT. MR. WALLACE WAS MET BY STUDENTS CARRYING SIGNS READING "WALLACE IS OUR HERO" AND "WALLACE IS OUR GURU".

    MR. WALLACE LOST THE PLACE IN HIS SPEECH, AND BROKE OFF SEVERAL TIMES TO CONSULT WITH HIS STAFF......
