LAUREN BACALL wrote "By
Myself" on one. Stingo in William
Styron's novel, "Sophie's Choice,"
wrote on one. And so does Styron.
Hours after former Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles died in 1959,
President Eisenhower carried a yellow
padto his sun porch in Gettysburg, Pa.,
and penciled a tribute to his friend.
But the courtroom is their
everlasting home. They are to the
lawyer what the slide rule is to the
engineer, the clipboard to the manager,
the whistle to the lifeguard.
IT'S BEEN THAT way since the turn
of the century, when a Massachusetts
judge carried his unlined yellow pad in-
to American Pad & Paper Co.'s
Holyoke, Mass., offices. He wanted a
ruled pad with a left side margin for his
notations. The company now makes 32
million a year.
The-legal process is awash in the
pads. Judges, prosecutors, defense at-
torneys, defendants, and victims carry
"It's a rare bird who doesn't use a
yellow legal pad," says Scott Turow, a
federal prosecutor in Chicago. He totes
three or four in his briefcase.
CHANGE A lawyer's stapler and he'll
hardly notice. Give him new paperclips
and he won't say a word. But pull a
switcheroo on his yellow legal pad, and
you've got a problem on your hands.
They tried it on Turow, swapping a
pad without a perforated top for one
with perforation. Purists can't be
"I complained bitterly," he recalls.
He laughs about it now; they got
him the most expensive pads. "There's
no cost-cutting when it comes to yellow
legal pads," he says.
THERE ALSO is no methadone for
the legal pad addict.
When the Carter White House put a
freeze on the pads, one worker swapped
information with federal agencies
based on how many legal pads he could
get in return.

Given Reagan's affection for them
(he wrote a Fourth of July essay on
one), it seems unlikely the current
White House crew will be cutting back.
THERE'S CERTAINLY no scrim-
ping in the Senate, where offices are
supplied with high-quality pads bound
in imitation leather. Each yellow sheet
is "watermarked," with the brand
name, Gold Fibre. That doesnt make
them easier tp write on, but it does help
justify the cost-41 cents each at the
bulk rate. At retail, they go for more
than a dollar.
"They're the most functional," ex-
plains David Marcos, whose official
Senate title is: ,"Keeper of the
The House pays a paltry quarter for
each of its pads, and only a trained eye
could tell the differences. But there are
many trained eyes among the
Most legal pads are a quarter-inch
thick, 8 to 8% inches wide, 11 to 1412 in-
ches long, rest on cardboard and are
bound at the top by staples or plastic.
Each of the pad's 50 sheets wears 25 to
35 horizontal blue lines spaced on-third
inch apart, and two or three vertical
red lines that create a 1 -inch margin
on the left side.
All are yellow. Some say that's
because yellow is easy on the eyes;
others say yellow has a calming effect.
No wonder they carry everything
from letters to confessiois, grocery
lists to secret equations, novels to news.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Jurors in
the trial of former Peoples Temple
member Larry Layton, ordered by a
judge to continue their deliberations,
heard a review yesterday of testimony
of three cult defectors.
The reading of testimony in U.S.
District Judge Robert Peckham's court
came after 39 hours of deliberations.
THE' JURORS, who began
deliberations Sept. 17, asked to hear the
testimony of temple defectors Monica
Bagby, Vernon Gosney and Dale Parks.
All were sitting with Layton in a small
plane when gunmen opened fire on a
larger aircraft nearby.
Rep. Leo Ryan (D-Calif.), three jour-
nalists and a women temple defector
were shot to death by now-dead temple
assassins at the Port Kaituma airstrip,
a few miles from the temple's
Jonestown settlement. U.S. diplomat
Richard Dwyer was wounded.
Shortly after the Nov. 18, 1978,
shootings, cult leader Jim Jones and 912
followers died in a mass murder and
LAYTON, 35, was charged with con-
spiracy to murder Ryan and Dwyer and
with aiding and abetting in Ryan's
killing and the attempted murder of
Layton's lawyers declined to put on a
defense, saying the government has not
proved its case.
Gosney and Bagby were wounded at
the airstrip. Layton was acquitted by a
Guyanese court of attempted murder
charges in those shootings.
The jury announced Friday it was
deadlocked but continued deliberations
under the judge's order.

Feisty Solidarity reconvenes
its first nationalcongress
GDANSK, Poland- Despite official warnings to moderate its policies, the
independent union Solidarity reconvened its first national congress yester-
day showing no signs of muzzling the rank-and-file militancy.
A shouting match erupted when a delegate rose to angrily denounce the
day-old law on workers' rights in management decisions, passed by
Parliament as a compromise with leaders of the 9.5 million-member
"There's going to be a storm here tomorrow," said a Western diplomat ob-
serving the restive proceedings after noting 49 delegates signed up to for-
mally debate the issue today. In the streets of Gdansk, meanwhile, residents
reported soldiers in battle fatigues had bolstered police patrols.
Reagan, Congress debate
.Saudi AWAC sale
WASHINGTON- The Reagan administration took its AWACS arguments
under cover yesterday as it sought a compromise that would be acceptable
to both Capitol Hill and Saudi Arabia.
The proposed sale of five of the sophisticated radar planes and other
military hardware to the Arab nation, an announced enemy of Israel, has
drawn the administration into a major foreign policy showdown.
A suggested deal to put uniformed American military personnel into the
Saudi AWACS gained brief momentum among some opposing senators at
week's end, but was quickly rebuffed by the Saudis. There were reports a
blue-ribbon delegation might be sent to Saudi Arabia to encourage such an
Reagan tax cuts
take effect Thursday
WASHINGTON- The first stage of the biggest tax cut in history that ap-
plies to individuals takes effect Thursday-but don't count on a windfall just
yet. For most people, the cut will beonly a few dollars a week.
On Oct. 1, federal income taxes will be reduced for all taxpayers by 5 per-
cent on an annual basis. Because the cut comes in the last quarter of 1981 the
reduction will amount to a mere 1.25 percent cut for the year.
Internal Revenue Service spokesman Ellen Murphy said the new income
tax withholding tables were mailed to about 5.5 million employers in late
August and are available at local IRS offices for employers who did not
"Everything is kicking along about normal," Ms. Murphy said.
To figure out how much you will save on a weekly basis, deduct 5 percent
from the "federal withholding" amount on your paycheck stub. That's only a
few dollars a week for most people.
Nestle asks Methodist group
to monitor infant formula
DAYTON, Ohio- The United Methodist Church Infant Formula Task For-
ce says the Nestle Corp. has asked it to monitor the company's compliance
with an international baby formula code adopted ,by the World Health
J. Philip Wogaman, dean of the Wesley Theological Seminary in
Washington and chairman of the task force, said Nestle representatives
made the request during a private meeting here Friday.
Wogaman said the task force had made no decision#on the proposal.
The task force will decide whether to recommend that the church join a
boycott of Nestle, which is based in Geneva, Switzerland, and three U.S. in-
fant formula manufacturers.
Backers of the boycott say the formula distributors persuade mothers to
give up breast feeding in favor of the formula. They say the formula often
becomes diluted or contaminated by bad water, resulting in disease or death
of the babies.
