A total of 1229 passengers
took advantage of the buses
provided yesterday for
students traveling to and from
the South Campus area.
This -was somewhat short of
the 1500 riders which
organizers feel to be necessary
for the experimental campus
transit system to break even.
The experiment, which has
been under consideration for
the past school year, began
a twoAveek run Monday. Two
air-conditioned buses will
travel between Chase Cafeteria
and Wilson Library from 7:22
a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Monday
through Friday carrying
passengers for ten cents a
ride.

UNC Professor William Geer
was chosen one of the six
great American College and
university teachers in National
Educational Television's pro

featuring 30-Jminute segments
on each professor, will be

"He can never tell where

the influence begins, is
dramatically distilled in the
program, "Men Who Teach."

will come today when the
novelty has worn off
somewhat.
Darrah indicated he was
pleased with the way the ex
periment went Monday.
"The buses ran on
schedule." he said, "and the
people who used them seemed
to have enjoyed tne nae very
much."
He added the riders seemed
quite willing to pay tell cents
to ride in air-conditioned com
fort rather than having to
make the long hike to or from
South Campus in the spring
heat.
Organizers of the experiment
are seeking permission from
the Chapel Hill City-Planner
to expand the route to run
buses through town every

Under the plan the 10:22,

The series then shows Geer
talking to students in a typical
scene in the main quad of
campus The; scene changes
to Geer's Modern Civilization
class with the professor lec
turing in his familiar Southern
drawl about the South in the
ante-bellum period.
Students then comment on
Geer's teaching. "You know
what he tries to do is sort
of cut up the self-righteousness
that tends to come. . . that
we're brought up in," one stu
dent said. "He suddenly makes

realize you know maybe

The course carries a heavy

out, yet many students do ex

individual points with the pro
fessor. The script moves to the Dai

from Raleigh can catch one
of the buses at 6:30 a.m. at

The buses are being rented
at $750.00 a week. The Student

Darrah stressed the impor

cited Tuesday as the critical
day in its operation. He said
the chances for a permanent
campus transit system in the
future probably depend on the
success or failure of this ex

students to show that they are

The scene switches back to
the classroom with Geer
teaching. The camera focusses
on the faces of the students
as he lectures some listen
intently with a smile coming
gradually as Geer "lights the
spark."

To show the informality of

the problem, of taxation and

The film changes to Franklin

"Still. . . students, black and

to jail, but to prison for non
violent demonstrations for civil

The scene again changes to
show Geer's family, life and
his position as head of Student
Aid and back again to the
classroom.
"I dont see any excuse for
a dull class," Geer said. "I
believe in the exchange
between the student and the
teacher. When a student asks
the question that seems fruit
ful, we pursue that question
to its logical end, in a way
that has meaning for the stu
dent." "You see the audience of
young faces, watching the
lights turn on in their eyes
after you've said something,"
said Geer, the teacher. "Then

of pop-singer Nancy Wilson.
John Dew, a Senior ac
