Congressman Eckhardt introduces warranty requirement bill By STEWART GAGNON ANNOTATIONS Editor • ■ BySTEWAR "The consumer's experience with product warranties is like a common experience with the west Texas ring tail cat - it looks like a raccoon, but isn't. Likewise, the consumer frequently looks at a warranty and thinks that it assures repair or replacement of an improperly functioning product to the satisfaction of the consumer. Much to his or her regret, it later proves not to be what it appeared to be." With that statement Congressman Bob Eckhardt, of Houston's 8th District, introduced his current Warranty-FTC Improvement legislation. The legislation, H.R. 7917, is designed to require the seller of a product costing more than $5 to give a warranty in writing that either the warranty fully complies with the standards set down by the FTC or to state that the warranty is limited and explain clearly how the warranty differs from the federally set standards. The bill also prohibits ...

2, ANNOTATIONS, October, 1973 Student* dt&ewt tkemt tác ful This year the S.B.A. Board of Governors has approximately, $10,600 worth of student money to spend. Of this, $4,800 is ear-marked for the Spring Banquet. Presumably the rest of this money is to be used to offer services to the Student Bar. So far this year (which includes the Summer Semester) the Board of Governors has spent student money on certificates for the Board (which cost $89.15 and are only made available to the Board and not to other students doing service to the Student Bar), a trip for the L.SD. Representative to a convention in Washington, D.C. (which cost $305 and was termed "a big cocktail party" by the LJS.D. Rep.), two very successful Freshman Orientation programs, and a typewriter for the use of the Board of Governors. It would seem that the Board could find something to spend its money on that would benefit the students rather than just the Board. The Board has asked several times what else their budg...

WELDON GRANGER President The S.B.A., in an effort to create a viable organization, is asking for volunteers interested in heading up student committees which will in turn produce programs of interest to the association. The association is improving in many respects I recently attended the alumni meeting for South Texas graduates and found that htere was much interest in our upcoming Legal Research Pool. At this meeting Richard Allen of External Affairs circulated copies of the ANNOTATIONS in an effort to acquaint the alumiis with the paper and events occurring at our school. A matter which deserves credit at this time is the successful effort that Richard Allen of the External Affairs office has had with the Placement program. Doug Clark, Chairman of the Student Directory Committee, deserves no less applause in that a publication w...

Page 4, ANNOTATIONS, October, 1*73 Crista' thru school- Why not a sock hop? By STEWART GAGNON ANNOTATIONS Editor I went to a ROCK AND ROLL REVIVAL a few weeks ago. All of the big musical idols of my adolescense were there. As I was sitting in my seat swaying to the music in the old Ossie and Harriet manner a monumental thought hit me. Here I am about to end my formal educational endeavors which had their beginning in the Age of Rock and Roll. What better way to graduate from law school than by having a real live, honest to goodness 1959 sock hop? First of all, it would be much cheaper than the average, run of the mill, traditional Spring Banquet that we end each year with. Secondly, it is a fitting end to something which had its beginning in the Era of Sock Hops. The most likely place to hold our hop would be in Rm. 102, seeing how dear ol' STCL doesn't have a gym or cafeteria. We need a Hop Decoration Committee to see to it that all the crepe paper is perperly strung and the wall d...

a cu (tu October, 1973, ANNOTATIONS, Pip J orum. • • Think About Specializing How By CHARLES J. WEIGEL, II Associate Professor of Law .A small boy with an embryonic interest in the legal profession, if asked what he would like to be reaching maturity might replay in straight forward, unadorned fashion, "a lawyer,". Years later, on the even of his entry into the world of law, he is apt to produce the same answer, with unfortunately little or no interim thought devoted to the type, style, mark of modification of "lawyer" he can and perhaps must be if he is to succeed or even survive as a practitioner. Until recent years formal legal education would have been a unique entity in its novel-approach to training had it not been for the fact that the United States Navy utilized a similar format in its singularly surprising OCS program. There, would be officers were carefully nurutured in theory, with the utmost precaution taken to protect them from ever going near the water or even on board...

Page 8, ANNOTATIONS, October, 1973 Footballers on the move Teams scrimmage By JIM SKELTON ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer STCL's two entries in the Sunday Afternoon Apartment Athletic League clashed in two preseason scrimmages in mid-September. In the first encounter, on September 16th, Coach James Brannon substituted freely as his Blue team suffered a 26 to 18 setback at the hands of the Gold team's explosive offense and tenacious defense. The contest marked the third consecutive scrimmage victory for Gold over Blue during the past two seasons. Coach Ray Moses gave much of the credit for the win to the outstanding performance of quarterback Bucky Allshouse. The following weekend Blue earned a 12 to 6 win on the strength of quarterback Everett Urech's touchdown pass on the last play of the game Coach Brannon admitted this was the first time in four tries his team had managed to emerge victorious over the Gold squad, but stressed the fact that the games were, "merely preseason scrimmages". ...

P*r 2, ANNOTATIONS. , im Begging Your Pardon, Governor ANNOTATIONS, under the direction of its present staff, is an irresponsible publication reflecting only the immature views of a single person (its editor), SBA President J. Weldon Granger told a meeting of the Student Bar Association last month. In his indictment of ANNOTATIONS, Granger called for action by the SBA Board of Governors to correct this reprehensible situation. The clear import of Mr. Granger's words was, "Get into line, or the ax will fall". We will not, of course, get into Mr. Granger's line. But we commend and support Mr Granger in the exercise of his first amendment rights. Free expression, of whatever tenor, is always inherently valuable. Through his words, we, and you, have a clearer picture of J. Weldon Granger. But more importantly, Granger's address pointed squarely to the single greatest impediment to ANNOTATIONS becoming a newspaper in more than name-ANNOTATIONS depends for its voice on the mood and whims ...

I 73, ANNOTATIONS, Pace 3 Editor Criticized At Student Bar Meeting SBA President read a statement concerning the editorial policies of the ANNOTATIONS at the October 16 meeting of the Board of Governors. Granger emphasized that "the newspaper does not belong to Editor, Stewart Gagnon," but is a paper of all the students. In his statement, Granger said he felt two areas needed attention. He suggested members of the Board review the actions of the ANNOTATIONS in "censoring" some articles, and examine the publication of "editorials which are the view of the editor only and not the majority of the students." All members of the Board were given time to comment on this statement. All members seemed to be in agreement that the ANNOTATIONS was greatly improved over last year's papers. Senators Ragland, Muellweiss, and DiBella agreed with Granger that, in their opinions, the Editor had exceeded his authority. SBA Secretary Kin Pier pointed out to the re...

rM .*T*1 ■ 1973 •y RICK BUTLER ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer Four mayoral candidates visited South Texas College of Law over the past two months to express their respective views cm various issues involved in the election Tuesday, November 6, 1973. All of the four candidates - Fred Hofheinz, Dick Gottlieb, Bud Hadfield and Tree Johnson - outlined three general issues. These issues include law enforcement, environmental protection and public transportation. Tree Johnson spoke to a rather small group of students on October 5th and said that her main purpose in running for Mayor was that she "could not, in good conscience, vote for any other of the candidates." Johnson said that die "wants not only a change of administration, but a change of government," and that she would hold neighborhood city council meetings if elected. She also recommended that a twenty-four hour switchboard operation be established in an effort to "give a voice to the city." Johnson opposed the mass transit proposal f...

Several statistic-oriented questions were included with only a couple of opportunities provided for the student to submit an editorial comment. Of all the students who walked by the famous brown table just outside the door to Dean Walker's office, a total of 134 took the time to stuff a completed survey form into the assigned receptable. The purpose of this article is to combine some cold statistics about the law school with the information from the survey to provide a thought provoking profile of the student body. The big push to get admitted to law school these days ...

Page 6, ANNOTATIONS, November, 1973 acu orum Multi-State Bar 1974 By DR. JAMES H. BRANNON Assistant Professor of Law I never made an MBE; I never hope to make one; But one thing I can say for sure: I'd rather make than take one. Anonymous On the last Wednesday of July, 1974, South Texas graduates will have the chance to demonstrate their skills in taking multiple choice bar examinations. The Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) is here. It seems to have been developed and promoted as a response to the burgeoning masses of law graduates who fill reams of paper for the various state bar examiners to persue, while the anxious applicant waits months to hear that success or failure has occurred. (Have we at South Texas heard that lament before?) In order to cut down on the paperwork, so the theory' goes, we can test some areas of the law by subjective, machine-graded questions. A farther ranged objective seems to be that someday it will be possible to take an expanded MBE and qualify, withou...

—* ams un ine Move; Off To Soggy Start By JIM SKELTON ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer The flag football regular season got off to a soggy, sluggish start in mid-October, but both of the STCL entries in the Sunday afternoon league picked up the tempo by the end of the month. On that first "mudder" of a Sunday afternoon the Blue team held a 20 to 18 lead going into the final minute of action. With 40 seconds remaining the Fourth Estate quarterback lofted a long pass which was snared on the rebound somewhat fortuitously by one of his receivers. Time ran out before Blue could retaliate, and Coach Brannon's team walked away feeling, "robbed by such a lucky play". Across the way the Gold and Red (the addition of "and Red" to the name comes as a result of a bargain purchase of U of H red football jerseys) were slipping and sliding on the muddiest of the two playing fields. At halftime the STCL men trailed 20 to 12 to a short on personnel,, but long on stamina Parkview Manor team. With two minutes...
