IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Mother's milk advocates have won a victory in the Iowa City firehouse case. An Iowa Civil Rights Commission officer has ruled that firefighter Linda Eaton was a victim of sex discrimination when superiors denied her request to breast-feed her son at the fire station. Miss Eaton defied Fire Chief Robert Keating's order and began breast-feeding her child at the station twice daily after returning from maternity leave Jan. 22, 1979. The commission officer. William Stansberry, ruled 5½ months after a seven-day hearing on the case.

Raising Children in the 1980s
What was it like to have children in the 1980s?
"The conventional wisdom used to be that unhappily married people should remain married 'for the good of the children. Today's conventional wisdom holds with equal vigor, that an unhappy couple might well divorce for the good of the children, that divorce that promotes the happiness of the adults will benefit the children as well."
HOUSTON (AP) - Custody of an 8-month-old girl who was found in a trash bin has been granted to her white foster parents despite a black couple's contentions that the child, who is black, would be better off if raised by blacks.
Ashley Dennis was 4 days old when she was found, and the black couple, Wendell Robbins Jr., and his wife, Ruth, sought to adopt her after they saw her picture on television.
The Harris County Children's Protective Services approved the Robbinses for the adoption late last year.
But Arnold and Jana Neu, the baby's foster parents since August, decided four months ago that they wanted to adopt her.
On Monday, State District Judge Robert L. Lowry granted the Neus custody, saying it was in the best interests of the child and that county officials had rejected the Neus' adoption application without good cause. He declined to elaborate. April 29, 1986 Aiken Standard, South Carolina
