VOLUME XXII, NUMBER 4 SOUTH TEXAS FEBRUARY 1994 COLLEGE OF LAW STCL FEB 8 1994 U -ie ANNOTATIONS Law school family mourns Alumni Association exec By RUTH PILLER Annotations Editor More than a month after a gun-toting parolee shot Lizabeth Matthews in a southwest Houston restaurant, STCL faculty, staff, students and alumni continue to talk about all she had to give ~ and all that was taken from her. Lizabeth Parham Matthews, 37, died Dec. 30, shortly after she was shot during a holdup in the Bennigan's restau- rant at 6501 Southwest Freeway. Her husband, Kenneth, also shot during the lunch-time robbery, is recovering from his wounds. At press time, Charles Harold Hughes, the man accused of killing Matthews, remained in jail, held without bond. A grand jury was expected to get the case in the near future. And the winners are... South Texas had a winning week: Moot Court advocates cap- tured first place in an elusive New York competition, and a Princeton publication named STCL as havin...

February 1994 Letters to the Editor Calling all witnesses Dear Editor: On Wednesday, Jan. 26, 1993, at about 9:45 a.m., a fellow classmate and I were walking across the pedestrian crossing at the corner of Polk and San Jacinto (the crossing between the comer of the parking lot and the corner of the student lounge) when we were struck by a motorist attempt- ing to shoot through a malfunc- tioning red light. We were both knocked to the asphalt but, luck- ily, came away with only scrapes and bruises. At the scene, several students showed concern and helped us gather our senses. There were several witnesses to the accident, including a few who gave me their names and phone numbers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who assisted us. I would also request that anyone who was a witness and who has not already contacted me, please to do. My phone number is 521-2623. Thank you. Clark Comwell 1L A professor's thanks Dear Students, Faculty, Administra- tors and Staff: Thank y...

Page 3 February, 1994 Plain talk: Get your calendars ready By CLINT E. JONES SBA President Well, I guess it is time to welcome you back for another fun filled semester at South Texas. I hope each of you had a wonderful break, but now it is time to get back to such exciting events as recitation, studying, and, of course, Student Bar Association activities. As most of you will recall, we accomplished a number of things this past fall. But do not expect things to slow down. What follows is a sum- mary of some of the plans the SBA plans to accomplish this spring. Intramurals: Intramural basketball is already underway. Our own Michael Jordans have started hooping it up at St. Tho- mas University's gym on Friday evenings. As for golf, we plan on hosting another tournament for the students and the faculty on a Saturday, probably in April. Spring Break: After a successful ski trip over the winter break, we have decided to try to organize a vacation trip over spring break (March 13-19). This...

February 1994 Page 4 SPORTS Hunters have stellar duck, goose seasons By SCOTT SMITH and STEVEN HUDGINS Annotations Sportswriters Another hunting season has come and gone, and your sports reporters were there for all the excitement. As predicted in earlier issues, the duck and goose seasons were outstanding. Starting with the first half of the split duck season, we went on a fine duck hunt in the Eagle Lake area with 2Ls John Cummings and Hunter Shurtleff. We were able to take our limits with a mixed bag of pintail, teal and wood ducks. However, goose hunting met and surpassed all of our wildest expec- tations. Jim Bartlett, Todd Parker, Alan Andrews and Wilson Shirley, all 2Ls, reported a fine goose hunt in the East Bernard area over a rag spread. Although the conditions were less than ideal (clear skies), the birds were apparently still willing to decoy, as the hunters were able to bag 10 geese. In the upland game depart- ment, 2L Richard Morrison shot two nice gobblers out in West...

Page 5 February, 1994 Study abroad: Is it for you? (and can it be against you?) By SANDRA L. Associate Dean DeGRAW So you want to study abroad this summer! That can be arranged, provided you will have completed at least 30 semester hours with a grade point average of 70.0 or higher (subject only to a few formalities and a couple of other rules). Similarly, if you want to take a summer session in the beautiful city of Austin (or anywhere other than hot, muggy Houston), or for reasons beyond your control you need to study away from South Texas during a fall or spring semester, the first thing to do is read on. This article is a response to all of you about the questions most often asked by some of you. One question that won't be answered is whether you should do it or not. Studying elsewhere clearly can be a fun and broaden- ing experience, but can also be stressful. Experiencing the legal system at work in another culture can be stimulating; also foreign professors or a diverse peer ...

February 1994 Page 8 Matthews continued from page 1 export sales and project financing firm. "It's tragic for the school. She was perfect for this alumni association, for this school, for this time," Zivley said. Others who knew Matthews echoed her sentiment. One of Matthews' class- mates, Bob Schaffer, was STCL's Alumni Association president immediately before her. Along with being STCL colleagues and fellow Alumni Association offic- ers, the two were close friends, he said. In fact, Schaffer and Matthews were two of about 14 people who, as STCL students, started a dessert club, which ultimately became a dinner club and still exists today. Members of the group, many of whom are active members of the alumni association and the board of trustees, still gather about once a month, he said. "There was a unique group of people at that time. We threw ourselves in (to school)," he said. "There is definitely a void that has been left (in) every- one who knew her." Zivley and Matthews had be...

Anatomy of a Murder. Otto Preminger directed an all-star lineup that included Jimmy Stewart, George C. Scott, Ben Gazzarra, Lee Remick and Eve Arden. A must-see for those who wonder what an "irresistible impulse" is! 2. Cape Fear. Not the new one. The old one. Just as tense, but without the graphic violence. Starring Robert Mitchum as the ex-convict who turns the life of lawyer Gregory Peck into a living hell. 3. The Paper Chase. Is there a law professor who hasn't compared himself or herself to Professor Kingsfield? Is there a law student who hasn't prepared a course outline compa- rable to (or at least as voluminous as) "Bell on Property?" 4. The Ox-Bow Incident. This movie (starring a young Henry Fonda) drives home the potential horror of vigilante justice. 5. Les Miserables. One of the earli...

Pagel! Top ten Continued from page 3 as important as you thought it would be; developing your skills and having fun doing it is what's important. Who can participate? Any student in good standing who has completed 20 hours. I don't know the purpose of the 20-hour require- ment, but it does unfairly discrimi- nate against part-time students because those students usually only have 18 hours after the first two semesters. If you are a part-time student, I urge you to get involved and participate, either as an attor- ney or a witness. If you have only 18 hours and want to participate, let's petition the BOA and Dean Treece; we will move to waive, change or rescind the 20-hour requirement. Come see me; I'll be your advocate. Sports continued from page 4 vehicles are permitted on the island, and there is no potable water. We recommend calling the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for more informa- tion and an update on island conditions. Finally, even though the best time for Galveston ...

Page 2 March 1994 Letters to the Editor Student cries fowl Dear Editor, I am writing in regard to the fowl parking problem. You know the place, the parking lot with dead birds and ca-ca. Or was it a lot of dead birds run by a fly- by-night parking lot company? In any event it's a situation that stinks. I overheard one professor telling another that there weren't any dead birds and accompanying poop when they parked over there. Well of course not. It has always been the student that has gotten crapped on in academia. I doubt the city will do much to remedy the situation unless it can be turned into a domed stadium. And it is appar- ently unlikely that the birdbrain that runs the lot will take any notice unless the administration nags them. Me? I park there because it's relatively cheep. But I'm starting to get chicken to cross the road... Somewhat sincerely, Shannon M.

March 1994 Page 5 JIM BARTLETT My name is Jim Bartlett and I'm a candidate for president of the Student Bar Association. This is currently my second year at STCL. As a second-year student, I see the SBA as the only organization on campus which must take into account the best interests of every student at the school. I've never felt such a strong urge to become involved as I do here. I appreciate the opportunities that I have been provided so far, and I'm ready to devote the time and dedication it takes to represent our school as president of the SBA. Currently, I'm involved with several organizations and activities here. Some of those include the South Texas UT Exes, Law Review, the Florida Law Students Association and the Republican Law Students Association. I'm also a founding member of the newly formed South Texas Chapter of Ducks Unlim- ited. Additionally, I participate in intramural mock trial, moot court, flag football and softball.

Also must reserve meeting rooms, prepare meeting agenda. SHERINE THOMAS The past year has been full of firsts for the Student Bar Association and I am proud to say that as the 1992-93 SBA secretary, I have been a part of it. Over the last year, the SBA has grown immensely. We have tried to provide activities, programs and a voice for the student body. Although we, as an organization, have accomplished a great deal, we still have quite a bit left to do. As secretary this past year, I, along with the other officers, have focused on getting students involved. Student participation has definitely increased this year; however, I would like to see it grow even more. I hope to continue the work we started this year and hope to do so as 1993-94 SBA secretary.

March 1994 Page 7 MONTE HURST Dear South Texas Student: Thank you for your interest in this year's election. Assuming that you have been as stressed out as I have been, you might appreciate the coherent reading of this candidate's statement. I would like to briefly express to you my interest in serving as your mid-law senator, and communicate to you why I am the best candidate for this position. A. FACTS. I have always enjoyed serving in student government. For selfish reasons, it has given me the opportunity to meet many students with various interests. I also take a great deal of pride in representing the student government among the student body, and representing the school in the local community. My experience in student government reveals leadership and dedication. In high school, as a member of the student council, I served as a class representative for two years, then, as president my senior year. In college, I served as president of my class all four years at Tulane Universi...

FELICIA CWEREN My name is Felicia Cweren and I am running for freshman senator. I would do a good job as freshman senator because I have many positive ideas to bring to the Orientation Committee. One of my ideas is to have a faculty member serve as a mentor to the first-year students, as well as a student mentor. The faculty mentor would be chosen based on the area of law the student is interested in and would give the new students insight and guidance. I would also like to expand the student-mentor program and try to closely match students based on data sheets. Because I went through the orientation process less than a y...
