Buses roll in



Special To The Daily
PONTIAC--Scores of bulky yellow buses continued to roll
through city streets here yesterday, snarling traffic and con-
tinuing to anger area citizens opposed to the controversial
court-ordered busing plan for school de-segregation.
Anti - busing picketters, all members of the National
Action Group (NAG), temporarily suspended their street
V demonstrations yesterday. On Tuesday, the group's "show of
clout" picket lines brought the 42,000-worker Fisher Body
Plant to a grinding halt for the day, when workers refused
to cross the lines.

overturning the court order, issued last spring, other mem-

abortion law
From Wire Service Reports
A petition drive aimed at col-
lecting 250,000 signatures needed
to put the issue of abortion law
liberalization on the state ballot
in November, 1972, was formally
launched today.
Speakers for the Michigan Co-
ordinating Committee for Abor-
tion Law Reform, which is spear-
heading the petition d r i v e to
change Michigan's 125-year old
abortion law, said they were tak-
ing their proposal to the voting
booth because "we have no choice
but to take our bill to the people."
Abortion reform advocates have
worked for four years to change
the state abortion law. Each year
a bill has been introduced, and
e a c h year the Legislature has
failed to respond.
Recently, abortion supporters
have drawn up a simple 52-word
petition which would change the
law to allow abortions for any
reason during the first 20 weeks
of pregnancy.
It differs from the legislative
bill in the length of pregnancy
permissible for a legal abortion.
The Senate-passed version sets a
90-day limit, while the petition
calls for a 20-week (140-day)

Faculty union issue

Liquor licenses flow slowly

At present about 215,000 U.S.
troops are in Vietnam with the
figure set to drop to 184,000 by
Dec. 1 under a schedule the Presi-
dent announced last April. At the
current withdrawal rate of 15,000
a month a zero figure would be
reached in early 1973.
Government officials expect the
POW question, which has been in
a sort of limbo in recent weeks, to
re-emerge as a public issue. They
point to the increasing political
activity as the presidential elec-
tion year approaches, and to a
series of meetings starting later
this month involving organizations
of families of the 1,600 U.S. serv-
icemen listed as missing or cap-
