(Studio) Busing issue hits Senator
REPORTER: Frank Reynolds

(DC) North and South Democrats and Republican leadership divided. Department of Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Robert Finch in middle. Plan would prevent busing to force South school desegregation. Senator probably to water down House restrictions which Secretary Finch says will cripple administration efforts to advance integration. [Senator Hugh SCOTT - says not fond of busing, but more involved in amendment beside busing.] [Senator Gordon ALLOTT - feels busing shouldn't be used. Family rights infringed upon.] Real issue is how much pressure government to wield with regard to education cuts to force integration.
