Headline: Muhammad Ali / Draft Evasion


(Studio) Muhammad Ali or Cassius Clay sentenced to 5 years prison and fined $10,000 for draft evasion. Says he will appeal.
REPORTER: Chet Huntley

(Houston, Texas) [ALI - says just 1 of many blacks in United States in prison. Just a white-black issue. My case more than just draft evasion; many whites get away with draft card burning. Hurts future of blacks and whites getting along.]
