the other proposal for the operation of an
area bus system, made by the Gastonia
Bus Lines, was withdrawn due to the
other commitments the company had
made in South Carolina.
The bus system will operate as long'as
the joint subsidy for operation from the
towns, $ 1 2,000, is sufficient.
This arrangement on the subsidy was
to accommodate Carrboro and to
simplify the possible financial troubles of
such a system.
The town of Chapel Hill would pay 85
per cent of any deficit arising from the
system's operation, an amount in any
case not to exceed $10,000. Carrboro will
be responsible for the remaining 15 per
cent of any loss incurred in operation,
but not more than $2,000.

the towns to sharply limit their
financial liability in the operation of the
