(Studio) Supreme Court orders Ohio to put George Wallace's name on ballot by 6-3 vote. Based on 14th amendment. Ohio polls give him 20% vote. In Montgomery, Alabama, federal judge, Frank Johnson, Junior, dismisses suit charging Wallace with using state money, property and personnel in campaign. Judge says case involves political ethics, but if true, they're questions for state not federal courts Wallace campaigns in California.
