  • Description

    In Washington, D.C., on Tuesday (May 16) Senator Hubert Humphrey voiced sympathy for Governor George Wallace of Alabama--gunned down at an election campaign meeting in Baltimore, Maryland on Monday (May 15) -- and went on to appeal for the American democratic process to continue, with "open debate, dialogue, and discussion."
    "Campaigns must continue," the Senator said, "and the risks that are involved must be taken."
    Americans were too resolute,he went on, to allow violence to silence the fundamental right of any person to seek political office or state his views without threat or violent reaction. Americans differed, he said, "but we must not let these differences tear us apart, or set the scene for violent reaction."
