The government, which is
expected to resist farmers' pleas
for troops to break the docks
blockade, was still pinning its
hopes on a quick settlement
emerging from a peace commit-

union chiefs.
Britain's 42,000 longshore-
men walked out of the docks in
support of demands for more
pay and job security.

House to act

anti-busing proposals

WASHINGTON (P) - A bill that
would impose strict limits on the
federal courts' power to order
busing in school desegregation
cases was approved 21-16 yester-
day by the House Education and
Labor Committee.
The bill would prohibit cross-
town busing of elementary-
school pupils and permit it at
higher grades only under strict
limitations. Courts would have to
try all other desegregation meth-
ods before turning to busing.
The committee added a pro-
vision designed to concentrate
more federal education funds in
inner-city schools to improve
their educational quality.
It authorized $500 million a year
for that purpose, with the mon-


load the supplies in case the
action angered the longshore-
men and delayed a settlement.

Approval of the bill after a
long struggle in the committee
cleared the way for a flurry of
voting on antibusing measures
in the two weeks remaining be-
fore Congress recesses for the
Republican National Convention.
The Rules Committee, which
controls the flow of legislation to
the House floor, already has ap-
proved a constitutional amend-
ment that would outlaw busing.
It will vote tomorrow to clear
still another anti-busing bill for
a House vote.
That bill, requested by Presi-
dent Nixon last March, would pre-
vent the federal courts from is-
suing any new busing orders un-
til next June 30.
It is designed to freeze the
busing situation where it is now
in order to give Congress time
to pass permanent desegregation
guidelines for the courts to fol-
The bill from the Education
and Labor Committee would es-
tablish those guidelines, but anti-
busing forces still want t h e
freeze on new busing orders en-
acted in case the guidelines bill
should die in the Senate.
In addition, 167 members have
signed a petition demanding a
vote on the constitutional amend-
ment, which makes it likely that
all three will be acted on within
the next two weeks.
As it came from the Educa-
tion and Labor Committee, the
guidelines bill is milder than
many antibusing members desire,
and a strong effort to toughen it
undoubtedly will be made.
One provision Southerners are
certain to try to revive would
permit school districts already
under court orders to go back
into court and seek a modifica-
tion of those orders to conform to
the new antibusing guidelines.
