(UPI) Some came in pickup trucks "with gun racks hanging on the back and foxtails flapping in the breeze. Some, came in air- conditioned sedans. t They included antibusing groups from Michigan and hardhats from Cleveland, but most were hill- people from northern Alabama, many- barefoot, wearing blue jeans and overalls. When Sen. Ted Kenne- ; dy appeared, they gave him : warm applause. But the rebel yells and waving arms and shouts of "Amen, Governor!" made it obvious who they really came to see. Some stood for hours at the Independence Day celebration with the soft Alabama mud oozing through their toes to see and hear Gov. George Wallace. After a while, some just gave up and sat down in the mud puddles. Before he spoke, the conservative Alabama governor was praised as a patriot and given a special award by Kennedy, whose brother President John F. Kennedy thwarted Wallace's "schoolhouse door" stand 10 years ago with federal troops. When Wallace finally rolled his wheelchair onto the stage, the crowd whooped. They screamed when he stood erect in. a special platform and they cheered when he spoke. Wallace said he wasn't going | to make a speech—just a response to the special patriotism award presented by Kennedy during a joint appearance at "Spirit of America" festival designed to unify the liberal and conservative wings of the Democratic party. "I didn't want to speak this long," he said, "But with a crowd like this I just can't quit." And and weary sitting in the withered farmers looking housewives the plastic lawn chairs and in the mud hollered, "Amen, Governor!" With Kennedy looking on, Wallace talked about the people of Alabama, how they love freedom and are just as good as any people in the nation. Wallace's speech was not new. Most of the people had heard it so many times its themes were like the refrains of an old hymn. But nobody was tired of listening. One woman handed her three- year-old boy to a deputy sheriff j so he could lift the child above the crowd for a glimpse of Wallace. As the deputy held the boy, looking at Wallace perched on his useless legs, he turned to the woman and said, "Ain't it a damn shame about a man like that?" "It shore is," she said. Dog Rescued From River, Another Case of Ineptitude' NEW YORK (UPI) - The crewmen of fireboat Harry M. Archer were shining nozzles and checking pumps Wednesday when a young girl on a bicycle raced up to their pier on the East River and breathlessly told them, "There's a dog in the water and he's drowning." The boat's engines roared and its lines were quickly cast off as Marine Company No. 6 steamed to the rescue. As the Archer, commanded by Capt. William Farreil, bore down on the dog, "Spot," the beast panicked, so Farreil ordered firemen Robert Scherry and James Wehner into a smaller launch. They snagged the water- soaked canine with an aluminum pole that had a loop on the end. "We brought him back to the pier," Farreil said, "and turned him over, wet but healthy, to a young lady who identified herself as his owner and told us his name. She never did give hers, she was so excited and grateful to get the dog back alive." Farreil said inept dogs "just seem to keep falling into the water while trying to see their own reflection. This was our second dog rescue this year and we had nine last year." Matter of Fact A treaty between the U.S. and Colombia to have the U.S. dig the Panama Canal was signed Jan. 22, 1903. When Colombia rejected the treaty, Panama declared its independence on November 3, and was recognized by President Theodore Roosevelt on November 6, The World Almanac says. Roosevelt's recognition indirectly aided the revolutionists, causing critics to accuse him of practicing the "big stick" policy against Colombia. Copyright © 1973 Newspaper Enterprise Assn.
