sent to a House-Senate conference

committee to work out differences bet-

chambers. If approved by the commit

congressional passage and be sent to
President Carter.
The anti-busing amendment attached
to the Senate bill is similar to a rider
already passed by the House. Both

tation of healthy children to any schoo

chitect Alden Dow, inspired by the
geometric works of the modern Dutch
artist, Mondrian.

fice of the president and of several vice=
presidents, has a security system
through which the entrances can b
sealed at a second's notice.
