REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Pontiac, Mich.) Violent protests against busing in Pontiac showed that issue is as volatile in North as in South Now, in school plays, students mock racial attitudes of elders and ask other students to help make busing work. [School Supt., Dana WHITMER - says school situation is now stabilized.] Busing achieves racial integration, but is costly. [NAG leader, Irene MCCABE - says violence has increased as result of busing. Opposes mixing 2 social classes in 1 school environmental] Figures show racial incidents have dropped significantly.
