Item # 629332
May 16, 1972
AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, Akron, Ohio, May 16, 1972 (front page only)
* Governor George Wallace Shot
* Amish children only need to go to school through 8th grade
* Wisconsin vs. Yoder Supreme Court Decision
This displayable front page has: "Wallace Partially Paralyzed; Says Campaign To Continue", with subheads: "Big Question: Will Wallace Walk Again?", "Then I Realized It Was Gunfire, Not Firecrackers", with supporting text and a large photo of Governor Wallace lying on the ground after being shot by Arthur Herman Bremer. Also of note is the lower right article, "Court Rule Won't Alter Amish Ways", which describes the reaction of the Amish Community to the Supreme Court's unanimous landmark decision in Wisconsin vs. Yoder which permitted Amish parents to allow their children to leave school after the 8th grade. This decision has had significant impact on other rulings in regards to parental sovereignty over the children and their ability to Homeshool - among others.
Front page only, quite displayable, in good condition. Note: Some of the coverage of both events continue onto inside pages which are not present.
