Pag* 2 ANNOTATIONS March 1974 EDITORIALS TO THE NEW STCL For our school this year is truly Genesis. Hie strong beginnings stir the spirit and we all turn a new face to the world. And what could be more fitting than to celebrate our good fortune with the greatest courts of our great state. To the honored justices of the Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals, the members of the federal judiciary and the overworked judges of the Houston courts — who all cared enough to be here — welcome. As students of South Texas College of Law we promise to keep you busy in the future. It is only unfortunate that the fine courts of Florida, New York, New Jersey and other states, who are seeing more and more of our fellows in practice, could not also be here. At STCL there is more to be done. Those of us who have already gone and who will be gone soon will not reap the benefit of new facilities directly, but we certainly will benefit from greater prestige and pride. May the future be as br...

March 1976 ANNOTATIONS Page 3 STCL Goals Not Limited r i By Michael Jack Haney ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer "As one goal is reached, I set new ones. This is the only way to achieve. My goal is not limited. I want to have here the best law school in the country. It might not happen in my lifetime, but it could." Dr. Garland R. Walker's statement parallels the accomplishments he has made since becoming associated with South Texas College of Law in early May of 1959, when he accepted an offer from the school as a professor of law. Dr. Walker was named Assistant Dean on September 1, 1961. From that time, the day- to-day operation of the school was in Dr. Walker's hands. In 1968, Dr. Garland R. Walker was appointed Dean of South Texas College of Law, and effective January 1, 1976, Dr. Walker also serves the law school in the capacity of President. In 1964, under the direction of Dr. Walker, South Texas moved into the building it now occupies at 1220 Polk Avenue. At that time, the law school ...

Senator Charles Percy of Illinois has a ñéwly devised program for selecting judges from that state, which was presented at a national conference March 12 and 13. Also discussed were the use of lobbying to affect the quality of nomihees, problems of secrecy in the ABA Committee's work, and criteria and standards used.

It is part of being a lawyer to sound off for your cause. We hope you will do it here. POINT: The "Three-F" rule places an unfair burden on students. As long as a student can maintain a G.P.A. of 70 percent or higher, he should be permitted to graduate.

March 1976 ANNOTATIONS Page 7 Wyrick, Raney Compete in Runoff By Lee Willingham ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer A highly contested SBA presidential race resulted in a runoff between candidates Ken Raney and Terry Wyrick. Students return to the polls this week to cast the final ballots. Also on the ballot is the vice presidential runoff between Dennis Wilenchik and Bill Lange. Wyrick has served on the Board of Governors for the past year in her capacity as fresh- man senator. Enthusiastic about the excellent turnout, she is hopeful that this foretells greater participation by students in the SBA. Asked of her impressions and goals for the SBA Wyrick said, "I see the newly installed board as an available and inviting forum, industrious in nature and predictable in terms of consistant and dependable representation. ' 'Through careful organization and honest con- cern", she added, "the board members can function smoothly as an innovative body." Raney stated that the greatest problem of the off...

Texas 77002 ANNOTATIONS VOLUME IV, NO. 8 APRIL 1976 STCL Marks A New Beginning 4,000 Guests Join to Open Jones Building By BILL HALL ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer For South Texas College of Law, the weekend's events of March 27 & 28 surrounding the opening of the new Jesse H. Jones Building marked not only a change of face for the school, but also a change of image. "As far as I'm concerned, the most important and significant thing I felt about the weekend was that we shed the old YMCA image," said Dr. Garland R. Walker, STCL dean. "The response we received from all parties concerned was tremendous and we have yet to hear an unfavorable comment about the weekend." Included in the weekend's activities were the annual student Awards Banquet, highlighted by a salute to the Texas Supreme Court and the Court of Criminal Appeals from John M. Lawrence III, president of the Texas State Bar, and Sunday's champagne reception honoring t...

Pag* 2 ANNOTATIONS April 1976 EDITORIALS WE HAVE ARRIVED The party is over and the guests have gone home. To those who visited us for the first time we must have been quite a surprise. I hope we bowled them over. Our new facilities are impressive. The fact is that more than the face of STCL has changed over the past year. The student-body has become more and more com- petitive, and younger. The night-school image might deter some foolish employers, but it doesn't fool students who come from far- away states by choice. More students are attending full-time, so classes are crowded. This might dismay some of us older students who have attended part-time and been proud of the record we could muster while working full- time and feeding a family. But take heart. These new students are also taking clerking jobs part-time. Not many students graduate without some real law ex- But this is my last hurrah as editor, so I won't waste your time by telling you what you should already know. We are ...

Wyrick Bares Plans For More Open SB A By TERRY WYRICK SBA PRESIDENT ELECT Although my presidential responsibilities do not technically begin until the first day of the Summer Semester, I would like to set forth, now, those ideas which necessarily require prior planning on the part of the new Board and any students willing to express an interest. First, may I take this op- portunity to express my ap- preciation to those students who showed their support of the recent elections, and for the opportunity you have given me to work for the student body in the coming year. I will do my best to represent you well. This year, we are going to make a strong effort to involve as many students as possible in SBA activities. We feel that the best way to accomplish this purpose is to delegate not only jobs, but authority, to interested students. With that goal in mind, five continuing com- mittees have been established. The SBA Board will select three students each to work in the following areas, ...

April im ANNOTATIONS * <• * Southern District Leads Nation <■+1 Magistrates Take Big Job By DAVID MILLS ANNOTATIONS Staff Writer If the term "magistrate" leaves you in a quandry or if you think the term is synonymous with Justice of the Peace, you may be startled to find your misnomer is kin to mistaking Goodyear for Goodrich. Magistrates are federal judges rather than state judges and are not to be confused with J.P.'s. Due to the overcrowding of the federal courts, the Federal Magistrates Act of 1968 implemented the new judicial office of federal district at the trial level. The formation of this branch of the district court has become a welcome addition to the federal system and has helped to relieve the problem of distended, burgeoning dockets. In essence, they are providing much needed relief. As of April there are three federal magistrates in Houston. In addition, the Sothern District of Texas also has magistrates in Brownsville, Corpus Christi, Laredo, and a part-time m...

* -A Judge Brown Cites Scholarship First April 197é ANNOTATIONS Page 7 By SUMMER MILTON ANNOTATIONS Assistant Editor Judge John R. Brown, Chief of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals spoke with students April 1 and gave guidelines on what he considers the most important tools a law student should have, and answers to student questions. A high level of scholarship was cited as the most important quality of a law student, to be supported by a student's good memory, imagination, capacity for good writing, and once practice begins, a knowledge of the rules of the court system a case is in. Scholarship is what helps a lawyer in the primary duty to render service to the public, Brown said, adding that if lawyers only depended on cases, some of the cases would have never been decided, such as Gideon V. Wainwright, or Baker V. Carr. To be an informed lawyer, Brown said, you must know more than cases. Statutes present many controversies. "Case law is developing by reason of effective ad- voca...

A April 197é ANNOTATIONS Pag* * r. ► * * * -4 "We will promise nothing now as to what we will fulfill, for we believe that we can do much more than we can now promise." —Hon. J. C. Hutcheson, Jr. First Dean STCL, 1923 These words, which appeared in the forward to the first South Texas College of Law catalogue, invited prospective students to participate in an educational experiment largely new at that time — legal study through a part-time evening program. But with the passage of time, they became less an invitation and more a challenge to Dean Hut- cheson's successors to harness the talent that such an experiment would attract and use it to build a school perhaps far better than anything its founders had entertained. The challenge was taken up in due course as the school weathered the Depression, a World War, and a decade of flagging law school enrollments. Then somewhere around 1965, events combined to provide the impetus for a quantum leap. Houston's economy had exploded and com-...

"I was really not aware of the progress which your school of law has made in recent years, and I congratulate you upon your success in your endeavor as dean of the school," Calvert said. From John F. Onion, Jr., presiding judge of the Court of Criminal Appeals, came this response: "Words cannot describe last weekend's salute to the Court of Criminal Appeals and Supreme Court by South Texas College of Law. All of us have discussed the fact that never have we been so royally treated." Chief Justice Joe R.

Weigel, II was among the sources cited by the Attorney - General of New Jersey last year in the state's brief submitted to the Superior Court in the Karen Ann Quinlan case. Dr. Weigel saw that his ar- ticle was cited when he recently obtained a copy of the document from a student in his Legal Medicine Seminar. The article, "The Dying Patient's Rights — Do They Exist?", 16S. Tex. L. J. 153, was cited five times in the 54-page brief. However, according to Dr. Weigel, the Attorney General somewhat miscon- strued his article and, in one place, misquoted him. The law journal article was a survey of the legal and medical problems associated with euthanasia, Quinlan, 22, has been in a coma for nearly a year and she is being kept alive by a respirator.
