South I. . 1220 Polk Houston. Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Volume III No. 5 March 1975 VOTE - It's Your Right, So Use It Vl S2L4 President Candidates Offer Platforms * Sam George We often forget that STCL is one of few inde- pendent evening law schools, and as such has suf- fered disfavor with the ABA. The ABA's ulterior motives concern the "cranking out" of too many graduates, which give rise to an inference of doubt on the ABA's part as to the quality of legal education offered in law schools such as STCL. Thus, my goals concern the quality of legal education here, toward which I have some good ideas, one of which is the following: Docket Service Promised I will start a coordinated service which will give weekly trial dockets and crimes of actions to be tried in local, state, and federal courts. Its object will be to get law students into court to observe - a great learning experience. As to my background, I am 25, married, with no children, and lived in southwest Houston. Fishing, hun...

2, ANNOTATIONS, Much 1 7S Andy Boros Thomas E. Ross Everett Urech E. Lynn Grlsell, III Vice President Race Hotly Contested The Vice-Presidential office has attracted four hopeful candidates who are: Andy Boros, E. Lynn Griseil, ID, Thomas E. Ross, and Everett Urech. Boros Dear Fellow Students, Because I am proud to be a student of South Texas College of Law and grateful to the school for providing me with an excellent legal education, I am seeking the office of Vice-President of the Student Bar Association. S.T.C.L. is recognized through out the community and nation as an outstanding law school. The students of S.T.C.L. must take an active interest in perpetuating our school's excellent reputation, and the < S.B.A. must be-the focal point for such student interest. For the S.BA. to promote and encourage student interest it must be comprised of able and competent officers. Through the office of Vice-President I would work for and advance the interests of the student and school. Va...

i •A id-Law Candidates Four students seek election to the offices of Mid-Law Senator. They are Neil O. Bowman, Bill Garrett, Rob Hopper, and Bob Rejenf. Bowman Pertinent qualifications include during college being charian of the social committee and working on the major speakers program at Duke University and later serving as public affairs Officer for part of a tour in the Navy. It is evident that most students are out of touch with SBA policy decisions. Hence, your opimions are neither solicited nor heeded, yet you are all assessed dues. Such a policy cannot be condoned nor continued in any representative body. I propose a greater degree of representation for the average student, a budget voted upon by all students at the beginning of each semester with a minimum of last minute slush fund allocations, an on-campus bookstore of new and used books and drastic reduction in the costs of the spring banquet. The purpose of the SBA should be to serve the student. I believe that the SBA B...

Hgt 4, ANNOTATIONS, March 1975 Candidates Seek Freshman Senator Post The following students are election to the two offices of Freshman Senator: Tom Johnson, Ellen Macklin, Kenneth Charles Peterson, Dennis I. Wilenchik, Terry T. Wyrick. Macklin Seems to me that a major problem for each of us is a time shortage. Sorry I can't add an hour to the day, but changes can in effect give us more time. The present method of conveying information to the students is confusing and frustrating - papers left in the foyers, many and mixed bulletin boards, notice hither and yon. We need a better system for telling us what we need to know and how to find it out. A second xerox machine and extended library hours would also help the time problem. The lack of open contact with the SBA also bothers me. Yes, the data gets across here, but what about more? Like visible SBA reps willing to listen? A friendly face or three in the SBA office ready and willing to hear your complaints (or whatever)? You might s...

ftfe 6, ANNOTATIONS, March 197S If You Read This I Promise To Be Serious Rob Hopper Like many of the government programs they resemble, student activities are viewed by many with skepticism. Insiders and outsiders alike have observed that the publicity surrounding public office seems to attract a rather shallow lot. Indeed the whole school politics gambit at time resembles nothing so much as a self-perpetuating medicine show, run primarily for the benefit of P.R. junkies and aging child actors. But I'm kind of glad its around. If it weren't for student hustlers, people who like to write columns for school newspapers would be robbed of a considerable quantity of cannon fodder. Besides, since it's that time of year again when we're asked to vote another group of them into office, maybe we would do better to disregard for the moment our feelings toward particular candidates or candidates in general and ask ourselves if the student policy-making machinery here deserves our participation...

You are a resident of Florida and you are here in Texas preparing for your law career which awaits your return to Florida. But, exactly what is your problem? Oh, yes now I understand. You feel that being here in Texas is causing you to miss out on any chances of establishing any lasting relationships with other Florida students. Well, the solution to your dilemma has arrived... The Florida students attending South Texas College of Law are now seeking to establish an organization composed strictly of Florida students. The purpose of this organization is to establish a cohesion between Florida students. How will such an organization realize its goals? First of all, a running list of all Florida students will be drawn up and kept up to date. This list will be used to maintain some contact among graduates which will practice in Florida.

Ill No. 6 April 1975 George Wins Presidency SBA Election Turns Out 50 Percent By JOE COLLETTI ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer Sam George won the Student Bar Association (SBA) Presidency over Tom Fox, in a closely contested race in the SBA elections March 6-7, 1975. The race was decided by a margin of 33 votes (233 - 200). More than 50 percent of the student body turned out to vote. Tom Ross defeated Andy Boros for handily for the office of Vice President in a runoff election March 13-14. There originally were four candidates for the office, and the balloting resulted in only a 15 vote difference between Ross and Boros, neither candidate obtaining a majority vote in the first running.

ftgc lí'jiNNOTATlONS, April 197S HULS IN OUR DRY CELLAR "When I went to school here, you didn't give a damn about me,... and now .. .1 don't give a damn about you." Above is the full text of a speech delivered by a famous man to his class reunion at the ole Alma Mater. He was a bitter and cynical man, but he cared enough to buy an airplane ticket to go tell his Alma Mater where to place what. That he cared is probably what distinguishes him from most South Texas College of Law alumni. Dean Garland Walker tells us, and we have no reason to doubt him, that alumni financial contributions to the law college are just barely adequate to pay the cost of soliciting alumni contributions. Think about it for just a moment. How could a sourer chronicle be written, than that the second largest law school in the State of Texas, a law school that has been in existence for fifty years, has not a noticeable shred of alumni support to show for its trouble. In such a perspective, it is somewhat easier...

ANNOTATIONS, SBA Take Top LSD Honors By JOE COLLETTI ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer STCL's Student Bar Association and school newspaper, ANNOTATIONS, were recognized as the best school SBA and the best law school newspaper in the 13th Circuit by the American Bar Association - Law School Division (AfcA - LSD) which held their annual circuit conference March 21-23 at the downtown Holiday Inn. The 13th Circuit of the ABA - LSD encompasses the states of Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas and includes 14 law schools within these states. Three awards were presented at this conference with two of them going to STCL. The awards presented were for the best SBA, the best SBA project, and the best law school newspaper. SMU was recognized as the school with the best SBA project involving a program which eliminated class rankings at that school. The students at SMU felt that class rankings are false and misleading when applying for jobs and emphasis should be placed on grade point average rather than clas...

Competition Honors Spurgeon Bell The 1975 Spurgeon Bell Moot Court Competition was vigorously competitive.

Attending from South Texas were Summer Milton, Kris Moore, Lynda Corbin, Marcy Firth, and Terry Stransky. Women law students, attorneys and judges from every state attended the meet, which featured over 75 workshops and panels. The workshops were established on two levels: 1) overviews, which were comprised of 2 to 6 experienced litigators or other knowledgeable people in a particular field of law, who provided background information and a general overall analysis of the area of law and its relationship to women's rights, and 2) technical workshops, which provided opportunity for in-depth analysis of and exchange of strategies with people involved in a particular context of the law. Sexism on the Job Participants in the conference received advice on combatting sexism on the job...

Bankruptcy - Visions of Poverty Misconceived By STEVE GANO Associate Editor To many people, the word "bankruptcy" carries with it a certain stigma. One envisions abject poverty, ruthless and hungry creditors and the prospect of never again being able to obtain credit. According to Judge John Blinn, of the Federal Bankruptcy Court, this is a common misconcpetion due primarily to a lack of exposure to this type of action. The objective of the Federal Bankruptcy Court (formerly Referee in Bankruptcy) is to resolve the debtor's financial problems "so as to benefit all concerned," says Judge Blinn. There is essentially two theories of bankruptcy actions. In the "straight" or "fresh start" bankruptcy, the debtor turns over all his assets to the court, to be distributed pro rate among his creditors. In return, the debtor receives a complete discharge from all his debts. Judge Blinn points out that the debtor's credit may well be improved, because he is realeased from the debts which previo...

P*ge 2, ANNOTATIONS, May 1975 (dhow HOW SOON THEY FORGET One of the most novel of things about elected officers is how soon they forget they were elected, and take on an attitude that they were born to office, or that they hold the office as a matter of right. We make this observation, we hope constructively, for the benefit of our newly elected Student Bar Association Board of Governors. Because too often in the past we have found our offices nestled in the sweet buxom of the administration. Nine hundred students elected our new board, specifically, to represent the interests of the student body. And, it will be important for the new board, in representing the student body, to be able to work with the law school's administration. But as we must note, of the 900 persons the new board has been elected to represent, not even one of those persons goes by the name Garland Walker. And none of them are on the Board of Trustees. None of them are members of the faculty. ^ It seems to follow...

ADDENDUM "Traynham, you hot ticket," I bellowed through lips contorted with grief, "you printed the WRONG DRAFT!" "This is it! I've had it! Find yourself another columnist!" I was gleefully contem- plating his shock and despair when the Judge's lecture broke through my revery and I realized that it would be another fifteen minutes before I would be able to rush down to the Annotations Office and drown the copy staff in adrenalin. However, when adrenalin is allowed to lie around unused for fifteen minutes it ferments and becomes an hallucinogenic drug, leaving the "user" in a putty-like state. So when they offered to hold the present edition to give me time to write an Addendum, I went away happy. Here it is: Alumni Notes E.J.

4, ANNOTATIONS, May 197S Library Thieves Take Toll, Volumes Stolen, Ruined ByPAULMCGUFFEY Copy Chief Volume 13 of Tex. Jur. 2d is missing from the library. It is also missing from the libraries at the University of Houston and Texas Southern, said Mrs. Frances Thompson, our librarian. The facts were discovered when the librarians were at their conference at the University of Missouri recently. Mrs. Thompson explained that the book is important for the current problem in Legal Writing n. Because this problem is peculiar to South Texas, the implication is that South Texas students, finding the volume missing in their library, went to the other schools for a copy. Mrs. Thompson says the better students are the book thieves. "They are the ones who know where the books are," she said. "They take the books through thoughlessness, not malice to other students," she said. "But it shows their general disregard for their fellow man." Part of the blame can be put on the professors and administ...

South 1220 Polk Houston. Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS Vol IV. No. 1 Petition Raises Doubts About Worth of Code SBA Faces Problems With New Honor Code July 1975 A petition brought before the Student Bar Association raised questions about the honor code and brought action in the form of a committee to study the need for constitutional revision to allow for the review of discretionary functions of all student officials. After a heated discussion between Chief Prosecutor Richard Bax, students and SBA members and Frank Barkley, Sam George, SBA president, ruled that the SBA did not have power to consider the petition offered by Barkley. The petition was not clearly worded, but appeared to ask for a review of the discretionary duties of the prosecutor and a review of any charges dismissed. Barkley asked if he could withdraw his petition and file impeachment charges against Bax, and was told he could do so. But he declined. Tom Ross said he had heard from a few students who had signed the petiti...
