My campaign for the office of President of the S.B.A. is simple and direct. Freshmen require more than a group orientation program - they need individual help in planning their schedules. Mid Law students need assistance in the área of specialization and in making the year go by quicker. Senior need programs and materials concerning the practical aspects of entering the legal profession. These objectives are ascertainable. I am a full time student with the time to make things work. But for these to be more than just words, You are required - for your ideas and for your support. The S.B.A. provides the workable framework for fulfilling these goals and I believe that student input commensurate ...

Pip 6. ANNOTATIONS. March. 1974 Vice President Secretary Ken Walker Ken Walker is a student in good standing with credit for SO semester hours at S.T.C.L. He attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with a B.A. degree in 1972. Walker's main reason to seek the office of Vice President of the S.B A. is to serve the students by trying to establish a better line of communication between the students, the faculty, and the administration. Some of his proposals in accomplishing this communication goal are: 1. To establish monthly rap sessions with the faculty, which would be open to all students. 2. To establish bi-weekly meetings with Dean Walker and the officers of the S.B.A. 3. Abiding by the new S.B.A. Constitution, to set as a non voting member of the Board of Trustees meetings and report back to the S.B.A. the gist of the meetings. 4. To lessen the problems and gripes of the students and personally pursue possible solutions. 5. In general, to act as a liaison between ...

March, 1974, ANNOTATIONS, Pag* 7 Senior Senator Treasurer Marcy Firth I served as a Secretary Treasurer for two years at Tijnity University and feel I am well acquainted with the office of Treasurer. If elected, I will keep up to date records that will be easily accessible to all students and will initially make available to interested persons, a report of 1971-1974 expenditures in the hope that new ideas will be engendered for the allocation of available monies. I would support the funding and establishment of an ongoing guest speaker program since I feel that speakers of interest and merit are basic to the intellectual environment of any university. As Medical Editor of the Kelsey Seybold Clinic in the Texas Medical Center, I arrange for speakers and provide attendant publicity. I further feel that my background in editing manuscripts, publishing a montly newspaper, and preparing press releases and various promotional material would be an asset in working with the ANNOTATIONS Edit...

8, ANNOTATIONS. March, 1974 I have had. ambivalent thoughts about running for student government. After careful consideration and conversationswüh my fellow students, I have decided to seek the office of Mid Law Senator. Realistically speaking, there is little our student government can do dt •.the--, administration of the school: We, as students, *t ft the bottom of the "pyramid" with Dean Walker and his staff and the faculty in die middle, and our President and Board of Trustees at the top.

Freshman Senator March, 1974, ANNOTATIONS, Page 9 The office pf Freshman Senator can be an important meaningful position in student government, but only if the student in the position realizes that he is a representative of the students and not just himself or a handful of individuals. I intend to do all I can to seek out opinions and suggestions from the student body, especially the Freshman, and act accordingly. Two of the projects that I hope to implement if elected are noted below: (1) IMPROVEMENT OF FRESHMAN ORIENTATION - Since the majority of new Freshmen are unfamiliar with the Houston area many are forced by lack of time to seek accomodations at the most obvious places namely the many high priced apartments that abound Houston. With orientation the day before registration the student just doesn't have the time to seek less expensive housing. What I propose is that Freshman orientation be held 2 E. Lynn Grisell or 3 days prior to registration and that a volunteer group fo stu...

10. ANNOTATIONS. March. 1974 Faculty Consensus - Grading Deadline Unrealistic Continued from Page 1 school policy, but we encourage the instructors to submit the grades early and certainly no later than pre-registration. We've gone as far as withholding the last pay check if the grades aren't in, but even that has proven ineffectual. Calling or writing the professors doesn't really help to encourage them to get the grades in either. The student must take into consideration the size of the class and the age of the teacher. Also, the type of practice in which the instructor is engaged may have a lot to do with it." The Dean said there is no point spread system, or any other type of grading system used at STCL. The only uniform listing is that which appears in the catalog, designating the correlation of numerical and letter grades. To further clarify, Walker explained, "I don't- make the rules for the grading, that's up to the professors. I don't tell them what system to use. There exi...

Mí>r z\Áñ$M6Ü?<IA Grades: The Bottom Line March, 1074, ANNOTATIONS, I f Statistical Coaipilatioa Reveals Wide Variatieo By STEVE GANO ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer A purely subjective grading technique leaves a student with a naked number and no standard against which to evaluate his performance. The purpose of this chart is to allow a student to (1) consider his performance with respect to others in a class, (2) measure one course against another, and (3) provide a means for comparing a course to the school's profile. On the whole, there were as many A's as F's, and B's as D's. Roughly half of all grades were in the 70-79 range. Course to course variation was large, with class averages ranging from 69 to 79. Some courses had no A's and a few more had no F's. Those courses which follow the general distribution of the school are "good" in that a student may use his GPA to forecast his probable grade (all else being equal). Those courses with wide variation should be suspect. No atte...

mm—rn Paga 12, ANNOTATIONS. March, 1974 Early Job Hinting Essential By GEORGE CLIFTON Senior Law Student Having recently completed a rather lengthy period of job hunting in Houston and elsewhere I would like to impart a few gems of wisdom to any student who plans to be employed by a Texas law firm when he graduates. Inasmuch as potential employers do not exactly flock to South Texas seeking your body, it is encumbent upon you to find them where they hide and loudly make your presence known. In order to do this successfully it helps a great deal to know the general hiring practices of large and small firms. Large firms usually only hire students that they have had an opportunity to observe in action. This they do by inviting the potential associate to clerk during the summer preceding his graduation. Therefore, if Fulbright, Crooker is your goal then prepare a resume now, call the firm, and make an appointement for an interview for a clerk's job this summer. If they like the way you ...

Heading the list of these elected was Jim Skelton, capturing the president's chair, defeating both Gary Dibella and Sam Roosth on the first ballot. More than 50 percent of the student body gave Skelton a narrow first round victory with 51 percent of the vote, with 457 votes cast. Gary Dibella placed second in the balloting with 114 votes followed closely by Roosth with 107.

"rI?'#' :. ' . . v V f • ■ - tresses Participation If a majority of students voted for a change in the recent Student Bar Association Election, and president elect Jim Skelton believes they did, they're apt to get what they bargained for, though some of the change may come in a way they never anticipated. Skelton says he intends to do the kinds of things that "make a difference to students between going to a law school, and being a part of a law school." There is a great deal of difference, Skelton said, between an active Student Bar Association Board of Governors and an active Student Bar Association. "I want more student oriented activities - the kinds of things that make people feel they have some role in their educational process." "My initial feeling, from the election results, is that the majority of students want a change; they want more done than has been done in the past." "I believe the SBA should take over and coordinate extra-curricular activities, like speaker and profe...

6, ANNOTATIONS, April, 1974 'Casual Ethics' Hit Continued from p. 1 move by the ABA that would order law schools to cinlude a course on ethics as a requirement for graduation. But, he added, "I do, by all means, want to make it impossible for anyone to become a member of the bar without having done some rigorous thinking about ehtical problems and without having demonstrated a thorough understanding and appreciation of ethical questions." Rather than restrict the teaching of ethics to a single course, Fellers said he prefers a "broad brush" approach, supported by clinical programs and backed up by a tough three to six hour essay question in the final exams. "What must be abandoned," he said, "Is the casual attitude, this unimportant mention, this once over lightly consideration of ethical issues." Fellers added: "Today, most bw school teachers mention ethical problems, and sometimes even ofucs class discussions on them for a few minutes. But Í don't believe I am wrong in saying that...

April, 1974, ANNOTATIONS, Page 7 Honor Court Justices Rule on 3 Code Violations Three complaints of violations of the Honor Code were filed with the Honor Court during the Spring Semester. These alleged violations involved actions during two examinations during the Fall Semester, Contracts Section 1 and Corporations Section 1. The Honor Court has released its findings in the form of Opinions, but it has requested that the names of the students involved be omitted from any disclosure to the student body. Two complaints involved writing after time had been called in the Contracts Section 1 exam. In both cases pre-trial hearings were held and it was determined that the prosecutor had presented a prima facie case against the defendants. One of these defendants waived a hearing before the Honor Tribunal and requested a hearing before the Chief Justice solely on the merits of the case. At the formal hearing on the merits the defendant pleaded guilty. The Chief Justice accepted this plea a...

Chesterfield Smith, the Lakeland, Fla., attorney who heads the national organization of the legal profession, said a lack of citizen support for court improvement in the past was the major reason he was proposing the coalition. He explained that the ABA and other organizations representing the profession have had only limited usccesses in their years of working for judicial and court improvements.

Sixty-five players participated in the tourney on what turned out to be a perfect day for golf. Winners of the team low gross trophies were the team of John Craig and Mike Grover. Second place was taken by Dr. Brannon and Mr. Harris, two of the illustrious faculty participants (others were Dr. Ensle and Dr. Reiter). There had been a four-way tie for this category which required a playoff. However, by the time all scores had been posted, darkness and post tournament celebration had taken over the scene. The four teams in the play-off teed off on the nearby 6th hole and listened for their shots to hit the green. Amazingly enough, each player discovered the resting place of his invisible shot. After the teams tied the hole, ...
