Court to hear busing arguments 4 a x t by Richard Daw associated press writer Raleigh a the North Carolina supreme court will hear arguments wednesday which could decide the Fate of free school bus service for thousands of Urban children and deeply influence the future of Many school desegregation plans. Before the court will be an Appeal of an order issued last month by Superior court judge James h. Pou Bailey forbidding the spending of state funds for busing Urban children. The High court by a 5-2 vote delayed the effect of the order so it could decide whether As Bailey ruled spending the Money the a a contrary to the Law and. Declared policy of the state of North a ruling in favor of Bailey a decision could mean the end of free bus transportation for an estimated 111,000 children of 114 of the states 152 school districts. Many of the districts Are depending on busing All of which is financed by the state to carry out school desegregation plans which satisfy guidelines of Federal courts or the department of health education and welfare. Cutting off the bus service would mean they might have to completely revamp their desegregation plans. Only the busing of Urban children is it at stake. Rural children are1 not affected. That situation developed because of a suit which challenged the states practice of providing bus service for some City children and not for others. In Rural areas the state has been providing bus service for children if the area they live in was annexed since 1957. Children in such areas if they live More than pfc Miles from school get free bus service. Children who live in older areas of a City a no matter How far they Are from school a done to get the1 bus service. The system was established by the general Assembly with an Eye toward removing a major objective to annexation. People in areas up for annexation were resisting it in some cases because As Rural residents their children were eligible to1 ride school buses As City dwellers their children no longer would be. In session after session following the general Assembly a 1967 action efforts to extend the bus service to All Urban children on an equal basis failed. Then last year a Federal court ruled that North Carolina must treat All Urban children alike. It must either provide bus service for All living More than 1w Miles from school or none.
