WASHINGTON - Her place in
American history secure, Sandra Day
O'Connor gets down to work tomorrow,
her public notoriety as the first woman
on the Supreme Court giving way to the
private, workaday life of her eight
Sworn in Friday as the high court's
102nd member, she will meet with
colleagues in a week of closed-door
deliberations in anticipation of the Oct.
5 opening of the 1981-82 term.
EVEN BEFORE she joined the court,
Mrs. O'Connor told reporters she ex-
pected to become "very busy, very
fast" in trying to master the 102 cases
scheduled for full study and decision.
In addition, the court on Oct. 5 is ex-
pected to issue orders - most of them
grants or denials of review for appeals
left pending last, July or those that
arrived during the summer recess - in
as many as 1,000 cases.
Mrs. O'Connor inherits three law
clerks who have spent most of the
summer previewing those cases. The
three young lawyers, selected nearly a
year ago to spend the coming term
working for now-retired Justice Potter
Stewart, will work for Mrs. O'Connor.
She has hired a lawyer from her
husband's Phoenix law firm to be a
MRS. O'CONNOR also inherits some
direct responsibility from the man she
succeeds in the lifetime post. She will
serve as circuit justice for the sixth
federal judicial circuit,- handling
emergency matters from Kentucky,
Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.
As the first woman justice, she could
take an interest in several important
sex discrimination cases on the court's
The court will hear oral arguments
this fall on a key challenge to the
Education Department's power to bar
sex discrimination in hiring at colleges
receiving federal aid.
OTHER CASES involving women in-
clude a 10-year fight over Trans World
Airlines' policy, of grounding stewar-
desses who bear children, and whether
a giant pharmaceutical firm that
manufactured allegedly dangerous bir-
th control pills can be sued after a cer-
tain cutoff date.
She will work in the chambers used
until recently by Justice John Paul
Stevens. At the same time, she is
moving into one of Washington's most
private public .jobs, where she likely
will be shielded from the more deman-
ding aspects of being a national symbol.
Mrs. O'Connor, appeared relaxed,
perhaps even relieved, through the long
day of posing and shaking hands Friday
enough so to accept an invitation to a
rump reception hosted by reporters
who cover the court. In brief, off-the-
record repartee at that gathering, she
and her husband, John, displayed keen
BUT MOST of Friday offered pomp
and ceremony. In the marble and
mahogany courtroom, a six-minute
proceeding swept away two centuries of
President Reagan, whose nomination
of the former Arizona appeals court
judge broke a 191-year, all-male
tradition at the zenith of the federal
judiciary, was among 500 guests
Joining him were Attorney General
William French Smith, FBI Director
William Webster and many judges,
senators and legal scholars.
But none was more proud than Ada
Mae Day, who with husband Harry
traveled from the family's cattle ranch
in Arizona 'to watch their 51-year-old
daughter swear her allegiance to the
Constitution and promise to "faithfully
discharge the duties of my office."

much the same way the rushees
evaluate the houses."
After 25 minutes the rushees left
Alpha Sigma Phi amid cheers, songs,
and choruses of "Nice meeting you,"
and "Hope to see you soon."
The doors' ofo the first house barely
closed before the group pressed on to
the second. Outside, the rushees com-
pared their reactions. Some rushees
wondered if Alpha Sigma Phi, which
has mostly Jewish members, would ask
them back even though they weren't
"NO SORORITY discriminates
because of race, color, or religion," ex-
plained Mary Beth Sieler; Panhellenic
Adviser. "All houses have a diversity of
girls, so there is no one-type of girl in a

together and label them 'one-type'?"
added Maureen Delave, Panhellenic
The next house, Delta Delta Delta,
followed similar procedure with the ad-
dition of various edibles, including a
granola mixture with the most natural
sounding of names, gorp.
ON THE WAY to the third house, Pi
Beta Phi, the women were more
relaxed. Some were amazed that they
were actually going through rush,
especially when many of the women
said they previously had been anti-
"Ou of the .774 women who came to
the mass meeting, only about 500 of
them will actually pledge," Sieler said.
Seventeen percent of all female un-
dergrads are involved in the sorority
system on campus. There are some who
don't like it. But these are usually the
girls who joined for the wrong reasons,
such as 'just a place to live.' Girls
should join a sorority for the people,
and realize there is a time commitment
Toward the, end of the evening the
rushees complained of sore, cold feet

As the group shuffled up to the last of
the eight houses, Kappa Iappa Gam-
ma, some rushees blurted out, "Which
house is this?" "Isn't this Kappa Kappa
Gamma?" "Yeah, they are suppose to
have a reputation for wealthy, pretty;
girls." "Don't even listen to that crap,
