U.S. maintains trade
surplus in Sept.

WASHINGTON (P) - A lead-
ing sociologist joined Kentucky
political leaders yesterday in
calling for an end to compul-
sory busing as a means of
achieving school desegration.
Sociologist James Coleman
of the University of Chicago, an
early backer of cross-busing of
school children, told the Senate
Judiciary Committee he now
believes that busing has ham-
pered more than helped the
cause of school integration.
spectre of a country of black
cities and white suburbs,"
Coleman said he supports a
moratorium on all busing and
the creation of " a presidential
commission to study the impact
of busing across the nation.
But Coleman disagreed with
Kentucky Gov. Julian Carroll
and Kentucky senators and con-
gressmen who urged that the
Constitution be amended to bar
court-ordered busing plans' like
those now in effect in Louisville
and Boston.
The Judiciary Committee is
holding hearings on four pro-j

ing of students beyond the near-j
est school.
MAN James Eastland, (D-
Miss.), said the two days . of
hearings are centering on the
Louisville - Jefferson County
busing plan' as a "test-case"
study of a community "marred
by strife" because of court-or-
dered busing.
A report by Coleman in' 1966
for the U. S. Office of Educa-
tion supported busing to achieve
desegration. The report found
that children from disadvantag-
ed backgrounds performed
somewhat better when they at-
tended school with children
from more affluent homes.
Coleman testified that when
he conducted that study, he nev-
er envisioned massive court-or-
dered busing of students or the
impact it would have on U. S.
THE RESULTS of such orders
have been counterproductive, he
said, increasing racial tensions
and contributing to the flight of
whites from cities to surround-
ing suburbs.

to go about ending busing. "I
don't see the Constitution as an
instrument that should be used
for a matter of this sort," he
Instead, he said he hopes that
the federal courts get the mes-
sage that busing hasn't worked
and cease issuing busing or-
ders. He said he remains puz-
zled over why the Supreme
Court hasn't already handed'
down ahmajor antibusingdeci-
man said a presidential com-
mission to study busing - with
a moratorium on busing plans
while the commission does its
work - would be "a very use-
ful thing for this country."

tion's trade surplus totaled $976
million in September despite an
upswing in oil imports, the gov-
ernment said yesterday.
The September balance was
the. lowest since the United
States registered a $557 million
trade surplus in April. The
August trade balance was $1.04
THE SURPLUS marked the
eighth straight month that the
value of exports has exceeded
the value of imports. The trade
balance so far this year is $8.4
billion in the black, compared
to a $1.8 billion deficit during
the first nine months of 1974.
The government also reported
that investments by foreigners
in the United States totaled
$103.7 billion in 1974, much
higher than previously esti-
However, the Commerce and
T r e a s u r y departments said
Middle East oil-producing na-
tions accounted for only a very
small part of the total foreign
THE largest investors were

from the United Kingdom, Can-
ada, the Netherlands and Swit-
zerland, along with substantial
investment from G e r m a n y,
France, Belgium, Luxembourg
and Japan, the department said.
Petroleum is expected to ac-
count for about a quarter of the
value of U.S. imports this year
and has become a crucial factor
in determining whether the na-
tion runs a surplus or a deficit
in its trade accounts.
