The shake-up in the Compton school district continued this week as a state-appointed administrator ordered 38 more layoffs, demoted several administrators, and proposed a 10.5% salary cut for teachers. The actions at Tuesday's board meeting fueled charges of racism and confrontations involving residents, a board member and a state legislator. The layoffs and demotions are the latest austerity measures imposed by interim State Administrator Stanley G. Oswalt.

A black woman who was demoted from her job with the Los Angeles County agency charged with battling discrimination was ordered reinstated Thursday by a judge who called the county's behavior "atrocious." Velma dePonte, who still is without a job nearly six months after an original court order for reinstatement, won an injunction requiring the county to find her a job somewhere within the county system comparable to the $44,400-a-year post from which she was demoted in 1984.

Running back Freeman McNeil, who lost his starting job last week prior to a Monday night game against Seattle, has now helped the New York Jets win two straight. McNeil rushed for 184 yards in the rain Sunday and moved the Jets into position for the game's only touchdown in a 16-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs, who lost a franchise-record eighth consecutive game. "My attitude was to go out and be able to do the things they wanted me to do," McNeil said.
