Mayor: No Transit Aid Without Governor 9 * Help CHICAGO (UPI)~Ch!cago Mayor Hiehard 3. Daley hat ruletl otit tong>range financial aid for the Chicago Transit Authority without the help of Gov. Daniel Walker. Daley, critical ot Walker 's refusal to attend a planned meeting this Friday with Daley, Illinois House Speaker W. Robert Blair, R-Perk Forest, and Senate President William C. Karris, R-Pontiac, said, "The Idea Is to try to get a solution to the problem as quickly as we can. "THE REASON you have a meeting is to try to com* promise individual plans." Daley, discussing the crisis-wracked CTA at a news conference Wednesday, said he is resigned to accepting stopgap aid from city, county and state areas until the General Assembly can shape a permanent solution. Despite the CTA's financial plight, CTA Chairman Milton Pikarsky said no fare hike is foreseen. "TriE MAYOR, the president of the county board and I are convinced a fare hike would be counterproductive and would drive away passengers. No fare hike at all is in the picture in view of the assistance we've had." Pikarsky said the CTA now has enough money to continue operations through November. Pikarsky made it clear that some bus service reductions must go Into effect Aug. 5, but said he had a meeting scheduled for today to review Phase 11 of the CTA cutbacks set to take effect in October to see if they can possibly ^be' rescinded as a result of the emergency funds recently received. Although a long range solution to the continuing financial problems of the CTA was out of the question, Daley said there is reason to hope that the governor will agree to a summit meeting later. REPUBLICAN LEADERS said earlier in the week they were thinking of calling a special session of the General Assembly on the mass transportation crisis even though Walker has declared such a session unnecessary. Wa)ker, his wife, and their two youngest children left today for a two-week vacation in Hawaii. QajjibMiy Rfgistef -Mail, Gol«sbur?, Ill, Thursday, July 19.1973 1,1 Court To View Forced Maternity Leave for Teacherl By CRAIG A. PALME* WASHINGTON (UP!) - The U.S. Supreme Court will accept briefs this summer in two cases that challenge arbitrary, forced maternity leave for pregnant teachers. - .._„_.•,:. challenge of a mandatory maternity leave policy to the highest court. "In a very few instances it has been sustained as a matter of convenience," her petition said of the maternity policy. "It must be viewed for what it '^The mandatory leavt policy |truly is, an anachronism, and Edeoatto* Tedey for pregnant teachers was born out of prejudice and ignor* ince," asserted Mrs. Susan Cohen, a social studies teacher in Chesterfield County, Va., in her appeal of a lower court ruling, she was the nation's first teacher to carry her Attorney Grunted 1250,000 in Fees AUSTIN, Tex. (UPI) - The Texas Supreme Court Wednesday upheld a decision to grant Houston attorney Percy Foreman *SM,(IOO In fees for defending Candtf* Mossier and Mejjtf^Lane Powers on murder The two were acquitted in March, IMS, on charges of killing Mrs. Mossler 's husband, Jacques. A Houston trial court awarded Foreman $290,000 in attorney fees and the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals upheld the ruling, Mrs. Monger and Powers argued that the fee was "grossly excessive and unconscionable."

Also pending before the Supreme Court is an appeal by the Cleveland, Ohio, school board from the first appeals court decision favorable to teachers in the area of maternity leave. The two cases represent a recent Wave of challenges to school board policies that require pregnant teachers to take unpaid leave for a specified period of time. Other challenges have been raised by teachers in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Washington state. Generally lawsuits ask the Courts to guarantee the teachers their equal protection rights under the 14th Amendment in situations involving forced maternity leave, loss of retire­ ment and salary benefits, endangered tenure and seniority fight* and policies relating to re-employment after childbirth. Providing legal expenses and support to the three teachers whose challenges have reached the Supreme Court is the 1.2 million member National Education Association. "Support of teachers in these pending cases demonstrates NEA's commitment to equal employment for women and its efforts to eliminate discriminatory practices against women in em­ ployment, personnel policies, compensation and promotion," an NEA spokesman said. The Cleveland policy requires a pregnant teacher to take an unpaid leave of absence five months before the expected birth of a child end to continue on such status until the beginning of the first school term after the baby becomes three months Old, NEA said. Evidence laconclaslve In a decision that called the policy "arbitrary and unreasonable in its overbreadth," the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Cincinnati said:; "Under no construction of this record can we conclude that the medical evidence presented supports the extended periods of mandatory maternity leave; required by the rule both before and after birth of the child.";« The court noted that the policy was established two decades ago for instructional continuity, relief of administra* tive problems and because "teachers suffered many indigo nities as a result of pregnancy^ which consisted of children pointing, giggling, laughing and making snide remarks." "; Precision Avionics Guidance System Tested By ELDON BARRETT SEATTLE, Wash. (UPI) -^An avionics guidance system that will bring a new degree of precision to long-range navigation has been tested in flight successfully by Boeing Aerospace Co. Science Today by piloted planes, the system is designed primarily for use on missiles such as the Subsonic Cruise Armed Decoy (SCAD) and pilotless reconnaissance aircraft. Program manager Donald E. Ufilond of Boeing's Research The system.reads the terrain beneath. a missile or aircraft and automatically checks its conclusions against a stored memory, which tells the craft precisely where it is supposed to be. The system then corrects the course as necessary. System Tested Employing a technique called terrain correlation, the system was tested on two 600-mile flights originating in Seattle. It guided a Cessna Twin aircraft ! >recisely to its designated ocation, Rocky Beach Dam on the Columbia River near Wepatehee, Wash. Although the tests were flown and Engineering Division explained that terrain correlation supplements the flight vehicle's inertial navigation system. The navigation system, using airplane speed and direction to provide guidance, can automatically guide an aircraft from city to city, but it lacks the pinpoint precision often required for manned and unmanned special missions. A computer aboard the flight vehicle stores terrain profiles of pre-selected areas, each several miles in length and breadth. When the missile or aircraft arrives over one of these areas by inertial navigation, fhe stored information is automatically checked against the terrain measurements made by the craft's radar altimeter at this point. fkOODfVEAR POWER MIT POLYQLAS TIRES FOR*! or $2.31 F.E.T. per tiff.
