Panel to rule on 'U' sex bias

High Court defers action

'Cons'm'it"d from ' Pee-
in the preventive maintenance
office since 1966, reports that
he worked at the same schedul-
ing job at a "C-5" classifica-
tion, two steps higher than Con-
nel.
FORSYTH SAID last week
that he classified the scheduler
job as "C'-3" partly because he
was told by supervisors that the
position as to be subordinate to
that of the other person in the
office - Irauninger.
Meanwhile, Brauninger told
Connel shortly after she assum-
ed the job that he felt she was
underclassified and that she
should demand a re-audit of her
job.
Connel requested the audit in
March, 1973. Compensation ana-
lyst Gloria fHovan determined
that she was working at the "C-
5" level.
HOVAN NOTIFIED Wedge of
her finding and he agreed to

provide Connel with back pay
for the period during which 14o-
van found her to be underclas-
sified.
Nevertheless, Wedge later
notified Connel, who had been
demoted to "C-3" work, that
for the time she was under-
classified, she had been doing
work more complex than that
she had been hired to do. He
directed her not to perform
duties that would be classified
above "C'-3" without written
permission.
Connel testified at the hear-
ing that Wedge told her at this
point that he hadn't informed
her that her predecessor was
classified higher because he
"thought it would make her
mad."
SHE ALSO reported that he
refused to upgrade her classifi-
cation to "C-5" because such
an upgrading might encourage
other clericals, like his person-

al secretary, to demand higher
classification. Wedge contended
at the hearing that he did not
recall making any of these
statements.
Connel then complained to
Wedge's superior, Donald Wen-
del. Wendel agreed to upgrade
her classification to the "CA"
level. Connel, however, de-
manded placement at the "C-5S
level.
Meanwhile, B r a u n i n g er
requested a job audit seeking a
still higher "analyst" classifica-
tion because he said he had
been working at a higher level
than "C-5."
HE SAID when Connel per-
formed "C-S' duties, he had
been freed from some tasks
such as revising the scheduling
system.
BUT WHEN Connel's duties
were restricted, Brauninger was
forced to abandon his more
complex duties, and he contend-
ed that this downgrading of his
job constituted a retaliation
against his support for Connel's
grievances.
After complaining to Wendel,
Cannel and Brsuinger carried
their complaints to the three-
member panel.

THE COURT also ruled yes-
terdav that an illustrated ver-
sion of a government report on
pornography was obscene, but
the movie "Carnal Knowledge"
was not.
It was the court's first major
obscenity decision since one al-
most exactly a year ago in
which it laid down new and
stricter standards for judging
what is obscene.
The same four justices 'vho
dissented from the June 21, 73,
rifling, dissented from the de-
cision regarding the iltsrrated
version of the report of the
President's Commission on Ob-
scenity and Pornography.
THE COURT was unani ius
in freeing "Carnal KnowleJge"
on obscenity charges.
In other cases the court ruled
that states may deny ex-con-
victs the vote and that i eport-
ers do not have a constitu'ignal
right to interview inmates of
state or federal prisons.
Dissenting from the decision
on the obscenity report, wiich
arose out of proposed commer-
cial distribution by a publishing
group in California, were Jus-
tices William O. Douglas, Wil-
liam Brennan, Potter Stewart
and Thurgood Marshall.
THE FOUR agreed with the
outcome of the "Carnal Know-
ledge" case, but they based
their conclusion on different
Referring to the standards
laid down last year, Brennan
wrote that "the court's new
formulation does not extricate
us from the mire of case-by-
case determinations of obscen-
ity."
Be reiaterated his earlier view
that the First Amendment to the
constitution, "at least in the
absence of distribution to juven-
iles or obstrusive exposure to

unconsenting adults . . pro-
hibits the state and federal gov-
ernments from attempting whol-
ly to suppress sexually oriented
materials on the basis of their
allegedly 'obscene' contents."
DOUGLAS went further, con-
tending as he always has that
'any ban on obscenity is pro-
hibited by the First Amend-
ient "
In its decision last June the
court ruled that community
standa-rds rather than national
standards ould be used to test
obscenity.
In yesterday's majority opin-
ion, Justice William Rehnquist
left open the question of what
geographical range is to be cov-
ered by the term "community
standards."
"The Constitution does na o t
require that juries be instructed
in state obscenity cases to ap-
ply the standards of a hypothe-
tical state-wide community,"
Rehnquist wrote.
