ABSTRACT
The article discusses the threat posed by the presidential candidacy of George Corley Wallace to the administration of President Richard Nixon in the U.S. It has been speculated that Wallace's victory would have a negative impact on the administration's plan to desegregate schools in the Southern States. The author asserts that to avoid such complication, the Nixon administration, as well as the leaders of the Republican Party, should abandon their Southern strategy.
