What Is Curriculum? In every school across the country there is a curricu- lum Yet, "Curriculum" is a word which educators, students, and citizens use with a casualness and confi- dence that may not always be deserved Simply stated, the curriculum is the program of studies within a school. Interestingly, the word comes from the Latin word for "racetract"—and that often describes the pace some school activities require of boys and girls Usu- ally, the curriculum for particular subjects is outlined in curriculum guides or in manuals and textbooks supp- lies for teacher and student use. Therefore, we might then ask the larger question, "How does a school curriculum come to be?" First, we must realize that school exist by law There- fore, it follows that the government will always pres- cribe certa...

In giving them the opportunity to conduct mock U.N. proceedings by having each represented school assume the identity of a predetermined national dele- gation, the Model U.N affords students unique insights into the workings of the U N in its efforts to achieve international cooperation and accommodation. Anna Lee, 17, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Johnny M. Lee, headed the delegation from Incarnate Word Academy, representing "the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan," which was recognized at the conclusion of the sessions as the outstanding national delegation from the Middle East bloc.

Page 10 Southwest Chinese Journal may 1984 IN HIS TIME — By George Gee Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote a short story entitled "The Minister's Black Veil" that adds a little light to what I will be trying to say. This minister was thirty years old and had been the shepherd of this commun- ity church for some time. They loved him and cared about him to some degree. One day or rather, one Sunday morning, he shook them up by wearing a black veil as he preached. At first they were startled, and some of them were afraid, but soon curiosity became the issue that rose above all other expressions. One thing for certain, it brought back old members as well as new ones, because of this added feature. On the other hand his convictions seemed to improve with each message. During that time, he was engaged to a very lovely girl, who put his love to the test by asking him to remove the veil when he came to court her, or else break the engagement. He chose to not remove the veil, and gave no binding reaso...

Page 12 ^ it ^ Southwest Chinese Journal MAY 1984 Save $1,500 Per Year (Reduce Your FICA Tax) By George M. Yeiter, CPA If you own a business as a proprietor or a partner, you may want to consider incorporating. Your FICA taxes (social security contributions on self-employment income) for 1984 will be 11.3% of net self-employment income up to $37,800. A maximum contribution for a proprietor or partner to FICA will be $4,271. It's possible to reduce the total contribution to FICA by incorporating and taking a salary of less than $37,800. You must be able to justify your lower salary. An incorporated business which files a Sub-chapter S election pays no corporate income tax. The share- holders of a "Sub S" corporation are taxed directly on their individual income tax return for all corporate prof- its. The shareholder pays income^ax on wages from the corporation, as well as on profits in excess of those wages. Those profits in excess of wages, however, are not subject to self-employmen...

JUNE 1984 \*1 t£j 91 & Southwest Chinese Journal Narrow Loss for Hannah Chow in Judicial Run-off is Still a Triumph By Allan Gor What began as a hope-filled, enthusiastic effort to elect Hannah Chow, the first Chinese American to run for elective office in Harris County, as the Democratic Party nominee for Judge of County Civil Court-at-Law No. 3, became, in its narrowly losing conclusion, a poignant triumph for those who dared to challenge the barriers of politics in a county with a voting population larger than that of some states. After exciting the Chinese community and intriguing many area politicos with her second-place finish in the May 5 primary election (capturing 29% of the total county vote), attorney Hannah Chow barely lost to fellow attorney Carolyn Day Hobson in the June 2 run-off election to determine the Democratic nominee for the judgeship, to be decided in the November gen- eral elections. According to complete but unofficial returns from all county precincts, ...

Attorney Roberta Yang Discusses Asian Crime Involvement Since the fall of Saigon in 1975, much has been reported about the atrocities surrounding the exodus of refugees from the Southeast Asian countries which have fallen to Communist rule. According to the U.S. Committee for Refugees, in its 1984 publication Vietnamese Boat People—Pirates' Vulnerable Prey,, "more than 575,000 Vietnamese have fled their homeland by sea" since 1975. "An unknown number have died or been kidnapped on the open water, never to be heard from again. Although today fewer people attempt to escape Vietnam by boat than in past years, an average of 2700 per month still land in asylum countries of Southeast Asia. These people are attacked by pirates with staggering vehemence and frequency."
