The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials, down more than 10 points in early trading, was up 3.43 at 2,570.01 by noontime on Wall Street. Losers outnumbered gainers by about 5 to 3 in the overall tally of New York Stock Exchange-listed issues, with 519 up, 864 down and 445 unchanged. Analysts said buyers began to move in after the Dow Jones industrial average fell to the neighborhood of 2,545, which represented its closing lows early last week after a two-week selloff. But they also said traders remained uneasy about prospects for interest rates. Rates were mixed in the credit markets today. A big chunk of the day s total volume was concentrated in a single issue, Detroit Edison, which slipped '/i tol5'/« on turnover of more than 30 million shares. That activity was attributed to trading strategies based on the company's impending quarterly dividend. , Among actively traded blue-chip industrials, International Business Machines rose 1V4 toj 158% ; Eastman Kodak gained % to 100% ; General Electric was unchanged at 59V4, and American Telephone & Telegraph dipped % to 32.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An appeal has been filed by a company whose refusal to reinstate an AIDS victim in 1984 led to a state commission ruling banning discrimination against sufferers of the lethal disease. The appeal, filed last week by Raytheon Corp. in Santa Barbara Superior Court, challenges the state's authority to enforce discrimination laws based on physical handicap and also contends the company's decision was reasonable, given what was known about AIDS at the time. "In 1984, when there was much less knowledge about AIDS, deferring a decision to reinstate an AIDS patient to obtain more medical knowledge was reasonable and should'not have been a basis for a finding of violation," Raytheon lawyer Alfred Phillips said in papers filed with the court.' National Gay Rights Advocates lawyer Leonard Graff said Tuesday that Raytheon had made the same arguments unsuccessfully to the state Fair Employment and Housing Commission. But as long as the company has gone to court, Graff said, lawyers who represented the estate of AIDS victim John Chadbourne will ask the court for legal fees that the commission had denied. The commission awarded private civil rights lawyers only $1,100 of the $92,000 they sought for 500 hours of work on the case, which was prosecuted by the state Fair Employment and Housing Department. Under state law, decisions by the commission can be appealed in court, but the judge must defer to the commission's findings on factual issues if there is evidence to support them. Chadbourne, 36, of Santa Barbara, died in January 1985 of a cancer related to acquired immune deficiency syndrome. He had been diagnosed as having AIDS a year earlier. He had worked at Raytheon's Goleta plant as a quality control analyst. The company put him on medical leave in December 1983 and refused tolet him return to work, despite assurances by his doctor that Chadbourne was able to work without endangering himself or others. In unanimous rulings this February and May, the commission said Raytheon had violated a state law banning job discrimination against the physically handicapped, and awarded damages of about $6,000 to his estate for lost wages. The money has not been paid, but 10 percent annual interest will be added if the ruling stands. It was the first time the commission had ruled that AIDS was a physical handicap under state law and that job discrimination against AIDS patients was illegal. The commission members were appointed by Gov. George Deukmejian, who has. twice vetoed bills expressly banning job' "Hiscrimina- tion based on AIDS;.saying current law was adequate. The Potter Valley Schools Board of Education meets tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the Potter Valley School multipurpose room. The board will vote on budget cuts to make up a deficit of $52,350 in the district's $2.2 million proposed budget. That is the amount the district expects to lose in small school funding dollars from the state. The board had initially anticipated enrollment of 140 at the high school to be eligible for the funding; However, student enrollment is now 136. A budget-cutting committee has suggested using the contingency fund, categorical funds and lottery dollars to make up the deficit. Other cuts arc suggested in sites and buildings, food service, transportation, high school athletic supplies, •'f.mentary equipment, high school equipment and travel and conference monies.
