The house that we lived in was just a small four-room house that was built out of the lumber from an old barn that was in my great-grandmother's pasture. We had no inside plumbing. It was about five miles down a dirt road before you got to the drive. There was a one-room school house where I went for six years. Q: Did you feel qualified to compete with others when you reached Texas A&M? A: Oh, very much so. The one-room school house gave me a very good education. The teacher was a farmer's wife who lived in the community. She had two years of college. She happened to have been born a teacher and this school did not get the books it should have gotten because it was insignificant and away from the county seat in the corner of the county. We used what books we had. The fifth grade studied the Merchant of Venice and other Shakespearean plays because we had those books. 1 partic...

4- Strict Liability Continued froi repair. Dealer fails to adjust the dioke properly with the consequences as in hypo (1). Hypo (1) to a pure product transaction involving the sale of a defective car. Dealer would be liable for consumer's loss under the theories of strict liability and implied warranty of merchant- ability. Courts allow consumer to recover under these theories because they have determined, as a matter of policy, that is is reasonable for consumer to ex- pect that the product he pur- chases will perform so as not to cause injury to him or his property: Reasonable care on the part of the dealer in making or handling consumer's car will not bar recovery. In other situations, courts use strict liability in tort and implied warranty to protect reasonable expectations as to performance of the product when there has been no personal injury or property damage caused by a defect. Hypo (2) to a hybrid transaction in that it contains both the sale of a product, the choke and a...

April 1978 - Annotations - Pago 5 Editorial 7 It Happened One Night I pushed open the door into the heavy night air. I was numb from prolonged concentration in Ellis's contracts class. My feet tapped the way east along the brick walkway on Polk Avenue, but my mind wasn't keeping time. Car- oline Street was there and gone. My eyes focused on certain passages in the textbook. Those four guys loping around down the street by the parking meter only caught my attention because of their apparent lack of purposeful activity. TTiey were "just there." As I approached them I felt small. A visual confrontation was inevitable. They didn't look hap- py to see me. As 1 passed I imagined the worst of things. Would I be another statistic in urban America's bulging crime book? Is this what the bloody end is really like? Tragedy comes in pairs; first contracts, then this! But nothing happened. It never does. "I'm just paranoid." My pace quickened without effort and soon I felt the cool door handle of...

Q: How long was it between your training and your first assignment? A: Well, that was an assign- ment. It was training, but it was also an assignment. Then after we finished the desert training we were shipped across the country to an island off the coast of Florida, about even with Fort Pierce, Florida. There we started amphibious training and from that point we went to Solomon Island in Chesapeake Bay for more amphibious training, and then we went to Southern Eng- land, and I was billeted with an English family. Q: What does billeted mean? A: The military goes around and looks at your house and says that you can take so many soldiers, and you do not have any choice. That was one of our grievances against the English when we fought for our independence, the billeting of soldiers without com- pensat...

Caudle: Immunity Abolished In Texas Editor's notei The following Law through a combined effort of Annotations and Kay Dable, Law Journal's casenote editor. The casenote is selected on the basis of quality content and pertinent Anyone Interested In copy of the footnotes may contact hyQataD.SheppeHllI The Texas Supreme Court has invalidated the common law doctrine of interspousal tort im- munity as applied to intentional or willful torts. The public policy basis of protecting domestic tran- quility is no longer valid where an international physical attack has already taken place. Changes in Texas laws have outdated the common law legal fictional unity of the marriage relationship. After centuries of stagnation, the law has finally been realistically updated to permit the recovery of damages by one spouse from the other for intentional or willful torts.

Q: I understand that you like to travel and you have made 11 or 12 trips to Europe. A: Last summer 1 made my fifteenth trip to Europe, including my military trips. Q: Do you think this is based because of your memories of the war? A: No, I feel at home and I enjoy Europe. Q: What factor have goals play- ed in your life?

Lonson Staff Writer Isn't it unfortunate that STCL doesn't offer at the least, a four hour seminar with credit on how to find your way to the various state and federal courthouses in Houston? Why, Dorothy was even pro- vided a yellow brick road and a swarm of munchkens and all she wanted was to return to Kansas. (Who'd ever want to go back to Kansas? Besides, all roads in Kansas lead out anyway)! Hie only road to the highest stations in this country is that of the law," yet the law school curriculum is so overwhelmed with the theoretical aspects of law that many practical aspects, such as where the courts are located, are left unattended to. Well rest easy fellow students, for now not only will you have a yellow brick road resume of the courthouse locations, but as an added bonus you are treated to a map with STLC as the focal point. (Who needs munchldns anyway?) T...

Bettman Co-editor Note j This is the second interview of a two-part series with Dean Garland R. Walker. The first interview, pub- lished in April, covered his personal history and philosophy. In this portion, he explains STCL policies. la there a problem securing teach at South Texaa? No, there is a problem recog- nizing who is a quality professor because it doesn't necessarily follow strictly from what's on record. You've previously mentioned who was a born teacher, do you look for this quality? Yes, I do and it's not easy to distinguish, sometimes you have to give a person a try and they either have it or they don't. It is not something that's found on paper. Is there a problem when you have a teacher who does not represent the quality of education Yes, it is a problem. You have certain responsibilities. Maybe th...

Pag* 2 — Annotations — July 1978 Dean Walker STCL Student Tops Bar deal, some files more than others. Some have detailed resumes of their accomplishments and of course, I feel like this is a plus, since the majority only have their file. The person who has his resume, whether or not it is required, shows he is more perceptive with what he takes to do things. Little things like this is what makes the difference. Now it doesn't matter for someone who has an outstanding LSAT and grade point average. They are going to make it on their own. But it does make a difference to someone who is borderline or maybe below borderline. Then there are a few cases where I have accepted a person when we have had better students, where I thought he needed, very badly, a new direction in his life. So you've given Yes, and they've indicated candidate for South Texas? I think it's a hodgepodge. I would hot necessarily say that it was the highest LSAT and grade point average. I think it takes a well-rounde...

July 1978 — ^ " Dean Walker Athlete's Fri Florida students here have no problem passing the bar. A lot of time you are sought out as arbitrator between disgruntled students and their professors. Do you feel that this is one of your be a put of this? I think the dean is involved, whether he wants to or not, in every aspect of the school if necessary. I have to meet that obligation even though I might not enjoy it. Would you rather have a to arbitrate these where you have a who wants to protest his grade? No, because the teacher has taught the class and the grade is not going to be retired. It's what the teacher thinks that paper is worth. No other teacher knows what was taught in that course. So you can't second guess a teacher. It's only in some rare case where possibly the teacher develops a mental condition or something of this nature where you would go in and second guess a teacher on grades. Hie University of Houston Law School wffll not dismiss a student unless his grades fo0 b...

4 — The Winner* Corner Local Attorney Proves Will False By Molly Speer Editor's Notei Molly Speer will report monthly on the winning attorney of an interesting or controversial case. This month, James Dilworth won a seven month, one day trial in Las Vegas where he proved that the will claimed to have been Howard Hughes' holographic will was in fact false. The recent victor on behalf of the contestants of the Howard Hoghes' "Mormon Will" case, James Dilworth, sat back in his the twenty-fifth floor of exactly why he emerged as the winner of the seven month and one day trial in Las Vegas, "I think basically it's the same tiling that always wins lawsuits, it Dean Walker was the facts," Dilworth ex- plained, "We had the facts, he didn't." Yet there were problems, even though the facts were on Dil- worth' side. "When you're trying a lawsuit out of state, you have two problems. The first is the logistics of getting your staff, your people and the materials you need," Dilworth said. "The ot...

II July 1978 — Annotations — Pago 5 i'vv "i-" Editorial Leave It To Them By Philippe Symonovicz If you've recently arrived from another state and you're new to Houston, you couldn't help but notice them; they drive '62 Impalas, '64 Mustangs or even a '57 Ford pickup. You know who I mean ... the uninsured motorist . . . that breed of lunatic who merrily brushes by you with care- free abandon, at intersections, on freeways, in parking lots. He stands there as blatant as the knocks in his car. He has no worries, for he knows that you are on the street at your own risk. Recently, TAISO (Texas Auto- mobile Insurance Service Office) published figures showing that out of the 1,213,315 vehicles registered in Harris County by July 1977, only 836,717 carried some type of insurance coverage, leaving us to deal with a 31 percent uninsured motorist pop- ulation. That's not really that bad, we could be in Webb County — there the uninsured bandit accounts for 55 percent of the motorists. Of course...

Pago 6 — Annotations — July * * -« Wills: Of Cabbages and Kings By Jerill Romeo Little Staff Writer "Know all men by presents, that I, William Shakes- peare, being of sound mind and memory, do make and publish this my Last Will and Testa- ment ..The practice of writing a will is the great leveler of mankind, shared by the rich, the poor, the genius and the average man alike. In the not so distant past, this practice was viewed by some as a final opportunity to have the last work in the continuing argument of their life. Conversely, for the incurable comic, the last laugh. For the politically inclined, the last great soap box. For the self- righteous, a hand which reached out of the grave and pointed a moral finger. A book I have read recently called Curiosities of The Search Room (Byrne, 2nd edition 1969, 1st edition 1880) is a compendium of wills as well as an historical glimpse into the customs sur- rounding the care and treatment of wills, many of which we share today.
