(Studio) George Wallace spent $6 million on Presidential campaign. Says most from $100 or less contributions.
REPORTER: Chet Huntley

(Beaumont, Texas) Wallace gives impression that polls and press are his opposition. 3,500 greet Wallace at airport. 9,000 at South Texas State Fairgrounds for rally. [WALLACE - says pollsters trying to rig election. Reporters more interested in pickets than 1,000s here. Don't worry about what reporters write. They think they're opinion makers; they can't park bicycle straight.] Wallace irked that polls show he's losing popularity. Afraid he'll lose support.
