Warren R. Johnston, Specialist in International
Politics and Assistant Chief, Foreign Affairs Division,
Congressional Research Service, was presented a
30-year Federal Service Award pin by Lester S. Jay-
son, Director of the Service, on March 27.
Mr. Johnston received an A.B. degree in political
and social science from Columbia College, N.Y., in
1936. His basic professional concern for the past 30
years has been in the interrelated areas of foreign

affairs and national defense and has included a wide
variety of assignments with primary emphasis on
editorial supervision and research management.
Following World War II service as a Navy Military
Government Officer (Japanese Language) in the
Pacific, he joined the War Department as a civilian
analyst in Asian affairs. Subsequently he was asso-
ciated with several executive branch departments and
agencies as research analyst, research supervisor,
foreign affairs briefing officer, program planning and
evaluation officer, coordinator of interagency re-
search activities, and general administrator. As a
civilian student enrolled in the 10-month Army War
College course in U.S. foreign policy, he did his indi-
vidual student thesis on the machinery and proce-
dures of the National Security Council. Thereafter for
more than a year (1955-1956) he attended weekly
NSC Planning Board meetings as an official alternate.
From September 1959 to June 1964 he served with
the Joint U.S. Military Advisory Group (JUSMAG) in
Athens, Greece, in planning and liaison duties involv-
ing coordination with all elements of the U.S.
Embassy and military mission. During this period he
traveled extensively in Western Europe and to some
areas of the Middle East and Africa.
Mr. Johnston joined the staff of the then Legisla-
tive Reference Service in November, 1967. In his
present position, as Assistant Chief of the Foreign
Affairs Division, he directs and reviews the work of
research analysts in international and regional affairs,
foreign policy, and national defense and security. In
his individual capacity as Specialist in International
Politics he is currently serving as associate director of
a four-year project on "Science, Technology and
American Diplomacy" for the Subcommittee on
National Security Policy and Scientific Developments
of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
Mr. Johnston is a member of the Society for Inter-
national Development, the International Studies
Association, the Institute for Strategic Studies, the
International Society for Technology, the American
Foreign Service Association, the American Political
Science Association, and the American Society for
Public Administration.

LC Information Bulletin

was nominated by the CRS Human Relations
A recognized specialist in the field, Miss Holcomb's
"outstanding work in the field of women's rights" has
been noted in the Congressional Record as well as in
the daily press. A graduate of Bucknell University,
she was appointed to the Library staff in April 1967.
She is on the editorial advisory board of Women
Today and is the author of an article "Feminism in
Twentieth Century America" that appeared in the
April 1972 issue of The Bucknell Alumnus. Last
June, Miss Holcomb participated in a Conference on
Equal Opportunity for Women which gave special
emphasis to governmental requirements in affirmative
action programs.
The Federal Women's Program Coordinator is
responsible for advising the Library administration on
special concerns regarding the employment and
advancement of women in order to assure that equal
opportunity for women is an integral part of the
Library of Congress' overall equal opportunity and
affirmative action programs. It is expected that Miss
Holcomb will gather information, make recommenda-
tions for and on programs for women, and investigate
and report, with recommendations, on any area with
respect to equal opportunity for women. She will also
represent the Library of Congress at agency-wide
meetings of the Federal Women's Program Coordina-
The Equal Opportunity Office will continue to
handle individual complaints of discrimination and
the Employee Relations Office will continue to
handle grievances and other matters as prescribed in
Library regulations. Miss Holcomb will coordinate her
activities with the Employee Relations Officer, the
Coordinator of the Equal Opportunity Office, and
the Assistant Director of Personnel for Equality Pro-
grams. Responsible directly to the Librarian of Con-
gress, she will make semi-annual written reports, and,
as necessary, report directly to him.

The Consumer Price Index, of interest to Federal
workers, and to would-be retirees and their families
because it determines federal-military pension in-
creases, jumped in February by 3.5 percent over the
figure set last April. This increase, if it remains at
least 3 percent or increases further over the base
figures in March and April, means an automatic cost-
of-living raise for 1.2 million retired Federal
employees, effective July 1.
The exact amount of the increase, possibly 4.5 per-
cent, is calculated according to the highest percentage
over the base figure reached in February, March, or
April, plus one percent, the amount reflected in
August pension checks. The 1972 cost-of-living
increase amounted to 4.8 percent.
Under existing law, Federal employees must retire
before June 30 to qualify. The Civil Service Commis-
sion has legislation before Congress requesting that
those employees serving beyond the effective date of
a CPI increase be assured of receiving their annuities,
just as those who retire one day before the effective
The proposed measure avoids penalizing employees
who stay on their jobs to complete needed projects,
spares agencies the hardship of losing large numbers
of experienced people at one time, and permits the
workload of processing retirement claims, typically
huge, to be spread out.
Inquiries and requests for further instructions
should be directed to the Personnel Operations
Office, Room MB-G124, or by phone on ext. 5630.

This latest Class Q, like earlier editions, is not a
complete revision of the schedule. It does, however,
incorporate the additions and changes adopted
through September 1970 and, in addition, con-
siderable material not heretofore published. The
development of the field of nuclear physics during
the past decades has necessitated noticeable expan-
sion and rearrangement of topics in Class QC Physics.
Detail has been incorporated into the arrangement of
works in genetics in QH and virology in QR, where
only broad classification was possible before. Classes

QK Botany and QL Zoology have been greatly
enlarged by printing virtually exhaustive lists of the
various taxa representing the level at which classifica-
tion is effected. Increased provision has also been
made for classification by geographical distribution,
particularly in Class QL.
