MONTGOMERY, Ala. (A') --
Challenging the Nixon admin-
istration to back up the Presi-
dent's stand against school bus-
ing, Gov. George Wallace or-
dered the transfer yesterday of
a white pupil who has been as-
signed to a predominantly black
school 22 miles from her home.
Wallace's action came one
day after he sent a telegram
to President Nixon calling on
him in back up his antibusing
statements by asking the federal
courts to change their recent
rulings and make busing unlaw-
ful when used tn achieve inte-
The governor promised also to
"take some action," in pre-

hinted strongly he will d i r e c

to reopen "one or two" schools
already closed by federal court
decree to speed integration.

At a hurriedly summoned news

district facing court orders to

Some of the school districts
say that, despite the cutoff, they
will ask the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare
for emergency school desegre-
gation funds to buy the neces-
sary buses.
And BEW says there is a pos-
sibility that some of the most
hard-pressed districts will b a

money for busing under a fund-

Nixon's order.
Others have decided to pay
