measure, obviously
because it clearly would
have died in committee.
Several similar bills have
been submitted to
Congress since the
Supreme Court approved
busing to wipe out racial
segregation in 1973. All of
them met their fate in
committee, and were not
supported widely enough
to be forced to the floor.
Fortunately, enough
Congress members had
the sense to vote against
this measure. Although it
was aimed at ridding sch-
ools of busing to achieve

desegregation, it also
would have prevented
busing to alleviate over-
crowding' and to carry
handicapped children to
special schools.
Busing is neither a
pleasant nor harmless
practice. In fact, any
alternative which could
achieve desegregation
without further denying
rights to free choice in
housing and social selec-
tion would be quite
welcome. But due to
decades of racial steering
and redlining, it is
necessary in order to

poor resolution
T HE HOUSE yesterday rejected a constitu-
tional amendment which would have ended
all busing programs aimed at eliminating racial
segregation in public schools.
The amendment never should have made it as
far as the floor, not only bacause it would mean a
giant step backward for racial desegregation, but
also due process was averted entirely in bringing
it to a vote. ThereforeCongress members could
have approved a constitutional amendment
without even exploring the issue or the public's
opinion of it. No hearings were held on the

avoid reinforcement of
separate and unequal
educational facilities for
different races.
It is with relief that
yesterday's vote to con-
tinue this catch-up
egalitarian practice must
be viewed. It seems that
the best solution to the
pains of busing is through
real estate firms, who can
avoid the continued need
for forced desegregation.
Since that resolution is
much less immediate than
toting kids across town, we
must wait.
It is hoped that busing
-opponents will recognize
that fact and save the civil
and constitutional rights
subcommittee the trouble
of killing bills to halt
busing. Stopping the
desegregation process
now would spell a tragic
setback for civil rights and
their importance in the

Editor's note: The following
review, as well as the cartoons
above, appeared in the Cornell
Daily Sun last winter. While it
is now clear that Cornell's
President Frank Rhodes is no
longer a candidate for this
University's presidency, these
appear to provide some idea of
what his leadership might have
Motown: watch out. From the
lowest priced Ivy League in-
stitution comes the new rock
messiah - Captain Cornell. Since
splitting from his former group
"Michigan," Frank H.T. Rhodes,
a one-time geology professor, has
developed a cult following at
Cornell University. Relying
heavily on his geology
background, Captain Cornell
erupted into stardom, beginning
a new wave of Ivy Rock. With the
release of his greatest hits, that
wave new threatens to engulf the
The keystone of Frank's suc-
cess? A combination of brute
sexuality, raw energy, and a
passion to revive the British rock
invasion. Captain Cornell has
charisma. But more than that,
Frank H.T. Rhodes is a rebel in
the rock world, casting stones at
his innumerable adversaries.
Unlike many of today's rock
musicians, Captain Cornell's hits
are not songs. Rather his hits are
the punches thrown in the face of
evil--the malevolent trustees in-
