(AP Wire- photo) Maternity Leave Lawsuit Settled Out Of Court LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A lawsuit charging that the former maternity leave .policy of the state Social Services Division was unconstitutional has been settled out of court, As part of the settlement, the three state officials who were defendants in^the suit agreed to pay the employe's court costs and legal fees although'they did not concede that the original p o l i c y , which has been changed, was illegal. Sharon Marcum of Dumas, a district supervisor for service programs with the division, filed the suit Sept. 27 in U.S; District Court. She alleged that the division's policy of treating absences from work because of pregnancy differs from absences from work because of other Illnesses was a civil rights violation because It dis- criminated against female em- ployes. Defendants were Dr. Roger Host, director of the slate Department of Social and Rehabilitative Services; J. B. Cartwright, commissioner of Arkansas Social Services, and Richard Heath, director of the state Finance and Administration Department. A consent decree was. filed Tuesday by Judge G. Thomas Eisele of U.S. District Court. The decree said the defendants have put into effect a "uniform holiday and leave policy," . which made the suit moot. It ordered the defendants to allow Mrs. Marcum to be absent from work with pay during delivery and recuperation to the extent of her accumulated sick leave. Attached to the decree is the "uniform holiday and leave policy" plus a memorandum from Heath saying "any policy which treats maternity leave differently from any other sickness or disability is probably illegal under the terms of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act and can subject a state agency to civil action." The new holiday and leave policy says, "Maternity leave shall' be treated as any other leave for sickness or disability. Accumulated^ sick leave and annual leave, if requested by the employe, will be granted for maternity use, after which leave without pay may be used." State employes, under this policy, accrue 13 days a year of sick leave and may take leave without pay for up to six months. Stale Police Take Top Spot In Pistol Match The 1 .

Sept. 26, 1974 FAYETTIVILLI, ARKANSAS By CHET CURRIER NEW YORK (AP) -- Times ave taken a decided turn for ic belter in Ihc last few months for the troubled mutual und industry. As the statistics clearly spell ut, the credit goes to the glit- erlng early success of the in- ustry's newest product -- the hort term money market fund. Ip the six-month period from March 1 to .Aug. 31. investors iave poured over $600 million more into the money market urids than they have taken out, according to the Investment Company Institute. The :March figure was $16.2 million. By August, it had swol- en to $228.8 million. Harry J. Guinivan, the institute's associate director, points out that that data includes only the nine money narket funds which are members of the trade group. Not included, for example, is the largest of all the money market funds, New York's Reserve Fund, which issued its 'irst public shares in January 1973, and had grown to $366 million in net assets at the last count. Guinivan estimates the num ber of such funds lias reached 15 to 20 from only a handful the start of this year. "They're coming out so rap idly it's hard to keep track o them," he observes. The funds invest in a scclo of the financial world that fev small investors took much no tice of .until recently, when double-digit Interest rales sue denly thrust it into th spotlight. In this market, big busi nesses, banks and the goverr ment issue and trade interesl bearing securities that semble bonds, except that the mature in a few days, weeks o months instead of 20 or 30 or 4 years. A traditional bar to small in- estors wanting to Invest in icse vehicles -- Treasury bills, ank certificates of deposit, ommercial paper Issued by in- uslry, and the like -- has been he large minimum amount of apital required. Treasury bills, for instance, enerally require a minimum f $10,000, although one issue ils summer was offered in $ 00.units. Certificates of deposit rdinarily start at $100,000. What the funds do, of course, S to pool the money of in- ·eitqrs, and thus they can offer access to the short term money market for starting minimum nvcstments ranging from $5.00 to as little as $100 in a couple of cases. People in the industry ac tnowledge the popularity of the money market funds almos certainly will fade quickly should interest rates come down to any significant extent. Lower interest rates migh well be accompanied by a bet er stock market, however. The question then for the fund in dustry would be whether could attract once-burned in vestors back into common-stoci funds.
