Page 2 Is affirmative action an endangered entity? By ARTHUR GRIMALDO The conservative element is on the move in this country, and one of the programs it is earmarking for the "no-longer-needed pile'' is affir- mative action. In a Feb. 9, 1995, Houston Chronicle article, Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Tex., was quoted as say- ing, "If I become president, in my first executive order, I will overturn quotas, preferences and set-asides that have been set in place in execu- tive order. " Graham, a candidate for the 1996 Republican presidential nomination, told the Chronicle and other press, "[I]n America the only fair way of doing anything is on the basis of merit." The same article said Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., "wanted GOP lawmakers to con- sider whether affirmative action laws should be dropped," and that Dole 4 'is unsure whether those who sought jobs and raises should" have to pay' fordiscrimination perpetrated by gen- erations N before they were born.''' The issue was discussed...

Page 4 It's "morphin" time for ACL Advocacy course By GREG WILSON There is a whirlwind of change occurring in South Texas' much-lauded advocacy program. Pro- fessor Peter Murphy has announced he will step down from teaching the Advanced Civil Litigation course, ef- fective in the Fall 1995 semester. Murphy has been instructor and mentor for South Texas' varsity mocktrial advocates for 10 years. "I thought itwasjusttimeforachange," Murphy said.4 'There is no animosity or anything like that. I have just been involved in the advocacy program for 10 years and felt it was time to let someone else take over.'' Assistant Dean T. Gerald Treece, director of the advocacy pro- gram, said, "I appreciate Professor Murphy's 10 years in the program and no one will miss his loss more than I." Treece said students can thank Murphy for the great success South Texas has enjoyed in nation- wide advocacy competition. A re- placement ACL instructor has not been named. But the change does not end there. I...

Page 5 Project Row Houses boosts esteem By LAURI ANDRESS In a democracy, public policy reflects the established values of the people. When values no longer ex- ist, can public policy be effective? If not, are our public policies then ca- pable of rebuilding lost values? Let us begin by viewing in a light most favorable the assertion that "The United States is in a moral and spirtual decline." Of748 adults polled by Newsweek during the summer of 1994, 76 percent re- sponded in the affirmative to this question. Our leaders, now having determined that this contention is politically meritorious, spend much of their time lamenting that many of the nation's ills stem from the waning of basic values. But a more com- pelling issue for those who assert this view is how will we now create policies to recover lost values? But It is my thought that govern- mental polices will not be the central SPECIALIZING IN LAW BOOKS AND HELPS FOR STUDENTS LOWEST PRICES GUARANTEED THE BOOKSHELF II 650-6858 1...

Pag© 8 Madalyn O 'Hair stirs fires at STCL By KATHERINE HAYES Infamous STCL alumna Madalyn O'Hair addressed a crowd in Garrett-Townes auditorium on Wednesday, March 1. O'Hair is known worldwide as a leading spokesperson for Atheists beliefs. Following the 1963 Supreme Court decision of Murray v. Curiett, which removed prayer from public schools, O'Hair created "Other Americas, Inc.," a group dedicated to protecting and defining Atheists' rights. The group later changed its name to Ameri- can Atheists. During her speech, O'Hair recalled the difficulties and discrimi- nation she faced as a STCL student who was a non-believer, and her support of causes such as equal rights and nuclear disarmament. Accompanying O'Hair was her son, Jon Murray, president of American Atheists. Murray described theorganization'sactivitiesand high- lighted several of the200-plus battles the group has fought, including chal- lenges to the inscription "In God We Trust" on currency; the addition of "One nation,...

Page 10 Externs get more than course credit By TONI TOLIVER Why work for free? Lee Mclnnis, STCL's administrative as- sistant to clinical studies, offers three reasons: networking, or meeting at- torneys and judges; learning skills before you have to use them; and eliminating employment possibilities by learning what you do not want to do when you graduate. Additionally, Mclnnis said, an externship is a great way to improve inadequate resumes (those lacking legal experience). A student can take a judicial, civil or criminal externship for two to four hours credit. According to Mclnnis, once a student begins an externship, learning "is no longer just an aca- demic exercise." Students can extern for a fed- eral or statejudge, adistrict attorney, the Harris County attorney or other government agencies where paid positions may, because of scarcity, be difficult to obtain. A judicial externship is a great way to observe the judicial process, attorneys' courtroom demeanor and methods, hel...

Pife 11 Soldiers problems of finding the graves and identifying the remains buried in what is now pasture land. Ken Brown, a professor in the University of Houston's Department of Anthropology and an official with the Texas Historical Commission, said the acid in the soil in Waller County may have eroded the smaller bones of the skeletons, but that larger bones and teeth are likely to still be intact. Also a problem is the fact that the Confederate Army often buried Union POWs in slave gravesites, which is apparently the case with Yankee Cemetery. The property was once part of McDade Plantation and the McDade family cemetery is also located nearby .Brown said the cost of the project could reach as much as $6,000 per grave, although he believes $2,500 per grave is a more likely figure. A similar project in Dallas County has totaled more than $7 million so far, and could cost $1 million more to complete, he said. Brown estimates the number of POWs buried in Yankee Cemetery at 200 to 3...

Page 4 So long, and thanks for all the fishsticks By PATRICK COURTNEY An Open Letter To Our Incoming SBA and Dean: As I sit here and look back on the last three years spent at South Texas, I have many fond memories. The good times were spent with new, lifelong friends during our time at school. In talking with some of them over the past week or so, some common concerns about the school which can be easily addressed by the incoming Student Bar Association and our new Dean. Graduation is a time that everyone would like to spend with their family. This should come as no surprise to those in charge of coor- dinating the event. However, for the second consecutive semester, Gradu- ation falls on a Tuesday night. When petitioned to change the date, the administration countered with the excuse that when the schedule was set over a year ago, there were no facilities available, and that none had come available in the interim. Some students doubt the veracity of that position. So, Tuesday nigh...

Most new systems will need printers, modems and CD-ROM drives, so we will talk about them. Printers Printers are necessary to turn electronic images into hard copy on paper.

Fraternity officers Will Russell, Jane Joseph, Irene Said, Marvin Kluttz and Jim Lucci made plans to get approval, secure funding and produce a good- looking certificate to be awarded to deserving students. Initial plans were discussed with Dean Wilks and Dean DeGraw, who were amenable to the basic idea. Cheryl McEntire, Sue Cox and Sally Ray of the Institutional Ad- vancement Office helped with lay- out and design work. And Joseph met with the fraternity's national executive director in Washington, D.C. to make a presentation and secure funding for the South Texas chapter to fulfill this goal. The ex- ecutive director, Sam Crutchfield, will approach the national fraternity's board at the April con- ference and disc...
