(ended to fix substantive const)* tutional limitations, deriving ; from the First Amendment.. I Rehnquist said. Discussing the First Amend ! merit, limitations on juries, he ;said it would be wrong “to uphold an obscenity conviction I based upon a defendant’s depiction of a woman with a bare midriff even though a I properly charged jury unani-; piously agreed on a verdict of I guilty.” In the California case, the court said it was a misunder-l standing to conclude that the rejection of a national standard requires the application of a new yardstick based on a spe-i cific and smaller geographical area. .Juror’s Knowledge “A juror is entitled to draw on his own knowledge of the views ] of the average person in the community or vicinity from which he comes for making the I required determination, just as he is entitled to draw on his knowledge of the propensities of a reasonable person in other areas of the law,” the court said. The court said that jurors from throughout the southern judicial district of California presumably were available to hear the case in question, so “it would be standards of that community upon which the jurors would draw.” Rehnquist, Chief Justice Burger and Justices Blackmun and Powell, were joined by Justice White in the majority affirming the California conviction. Justices Douglas. Brennan, I Stewart and Marshall dissented In other action Monday, the [court: Ruled that prison inmates have no right to demand interviews with newsmen, nor do newsmen have any First Amendment right to demand interviews with specific prisoners. Ruled that ex-felons who have served their prison sentences can be barred from voting in state and local elections. Agreed to decide if a federal judge acted properly when he delayed the court-martial trial of an air force sergeant accused of spying for the Soviet Union. Upheld a lower court decision that a supervisor loses his immunity from union discipline by his union when he performs the work of a nonsupervisory worker.

Daily Record Council Rules Out Benefits After Leaves An employe who receives a ' leave of absence at his own request should not receive credit for that time when longevity benefits and step pay increases are calculated, the city council decided Monday. An employe of the engineering department asked for, and received, two leaves of absence of about three months each to attend college. The man will retain his seniority and accrued benefits for the time he actually worked for the city. The question before the council Monday, a policy decision, was whether the time spent on leave should be regarded as actual time worked for longevity and pay increase purposes. That is done in cases of military duty or when the employe takes the leave on behalf of, or at the request of, the city. The council decided unanimously that it will not be done when the leave is taken on the initiative of the employe. Councilmen agreed the present policy adequately protects the employe’s interests. They also voiced concern over potential problems it an employe took an extended leave of a year or more if all benefits were accorded for the time he was gone.
