REGINA (CP) It started late and got lost in its first call, but the experimental "te- lebus" service got off to a popular start Tuesday in tliis city of The personalized bus sen-- ice, which offers doorstep pickup in response to tele- phone orders, is part of an ex- periment aimed at reducing costs by providing service as Environment bill signed by governor required rather than on a reg- ular route basis. It is being operated in the southwest portion of the city, likely for a year or more. The telebuses initially will deliver passengers to a regu- lar bus stop if cross-city travel is required. The federal government re- cently set aside a fund for urban transportation study and Regina was among the first to apply for assistance to experiment with the telebus While more than half of seem Negro children in a state like Carolina will be in schools this year where Ihe ma- jority of pupils are white, mosl Northern states still have an av- erage of three black children I out of four in predominantly black schools, Southern integra- tion has raced ahead while Northern integration has made virtually no progress in recent vcars. system.

"It lias been a long struggle to convince industry that the legislation will not breed a rash of frivolous suits." Sargent said. The bill permits groups of no less than 10 Massachusetts resi- dents to file suit in Superior Court against anyone who has damaged the environment or is about to. Under the bill, the petitioners must inform state agencies charged with enforcing environ- mental laws and those named in the suit of Ihe intended action 21 days in advance of the filing. The plaintiffs also must post up to bond lo assure pay- ment of ccsts which may be as- sessed against them if Ihoy do not win the suit. Hot pants in ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.

IN YOUR IETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE SHIFT TO NORTH INOW the pressure of court rul- ings and publicity has begun to shift in earnest tn the Northern cities, with their increasingly black cores and overwhelmingly white suburbs. White parents in Ihe rv who once supported or accepted integration in theory, when it was confined to the South, seem decidedly less enthusiastic when told their children will have to be "bused" outside the neigh- borhood or will have to share classrooms with ghetto youngs- ters. Their opposition to court-or- dered busing has been joined by black-power advocates, who want all-black schools to de- velop racial awareness, as well as radicals, who once marched for integration but see it now as a means of spreading middle- class values among the Negro poor. There also has been increas- ing opposition from militant Italian. Chinese and other etli- nic groups, who are borrowing a page from black nationalists and asserling their own com- munity values. The confusion and contro- versy about aims and methods seems lo have been augmented by the statements of public leaders. President Nixon has stated a flat opposition to the "busing of our nation's schoolchildren lo achieve racial balance" and or- dered government officials to enforce only the "minimum bus- ing" required by law. SIUSK1E LUKEWARM Even those who have a more outspoken commitment to racial integral ion than Ihe president, such as Democratic Senator Ed- mund Muskie, have been luke- warm to busing as a solution lo racial division. Given the Sonth's record on integration, it was not alto- gether surprising that one of the mosl forthright statements about the issue should have come from one of the "new- look" Southern leaders, Gover- nor Ticiibin Askew of Florida. I Describing busing as an "arti- ficinl and inadequate inslru- mcn. of change" in American society. Askew told a University of Florida audience recently the iillcrnr.tive is lo lake "meaning- ful steps" lo end segregation in Ihe whole communily and thus make busing unnecessary. "Only Ihis way will wo put fhn divisive and self-defeating issue of race behind us once and for Askew said. "If tlicrc is another answer, I have yet to henr it." 33 MONTHS WEAROUT GUARANTEE GUARANTEED THREE WAYS 1.
