Annotations Non-Profit Org. U.S. Postage PAID Houston, Texas Permit 8451 Volume XI, Number 5 1303 San Jacinto, Houston, Texas 77002 November 1983 'Being a Good Victim' topic of presentation by Ciodi Hooper Detective R.L. Yarborough of the Sex Crimes Unit, Homocide Division, Houston Police Depart- ment, presented "Being a Good Victim" at STCL on September 29, 1983 at 4 p.m. in Room 101 at the request of Women in Law. The presentation emphasized the statistical reality that YOU may very well be a victim of a sexual assault and offered practical sug- gestions for survival and outlined techniques to enable you to be an effective witness. Each victim is someone's daughter, sister or wife. Each suspect is likewise, someone's son, brother or husband. We always tend to think "this type of thing only happens to other people" — Not True. Victims and suspects alike are all known by someone — that someone at sometime will likely be you. They both range in age from 5 to % and occupy the range of...

Page 2 - ANNOTATIONS - November 1983 Phi Alpha Delta is newcomer at South Texas by Kerry C. Hagan John H. Wood, Jr. Inn of Phi Delta Phi International Legal Fraternity was established at South Texas in the Spring of 1982. Because Phi Delta Phi is a "new- comer" among the fraternities at South Texas, little is known about the organization. Phi Delta Phi is the oldest legal fraternity in the United States. The local organizations are called "Inns", borrowing from the terminology of the English Inns of Court. The Inn at South Texas is named after Judge John H. Wood, a Federal judge in San An- tonio who was the only Federal judge to be murdered as a result of his position on the judiciary. Phi Delta Phi is the only na- tional honorary fraternity. Be- cause of its honorary status, the purpose of Phi Delta Phi is to upgrade the legal profession and stimulate the intellectual develop- ment of its members. Additional- ly, a number of programs are of- fered for the benefit of individual stud...

P«a« 4 — ANNOTATIONS - November 1983 ii In the beginning," or words to that effect Editor's Note: This article ap- peared in a recent edition of the ABA Journal and was pointed out to me. The article appears in its entirety. We all know that most lawyers can't write a clear sentence. Rather than rely on the short, pithy Anglo-Saxon words that spice up the language, we lean on ponderous legalisms and syllo- gisms, heretofores and aforemen- tioneds and other equally inele- gant words. Adjectives are forbid- den—strictly. So are ways of say- ing things that sound suspiciously normal, human and, yes, pleasing to the ear. All of this started me thinking. What, I asked myself, would some of the world's most beau- tiful literature sound like if it had been rewritten by your average, run-of-the-office lawyer trying to sound appropriately contentious? Giving the matter about 30 sec- onds of serious thought, I decided that the most exquisite lines ever composed would probably lose more than a...

November 1983 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 5 What happens when you don't know the answer? Editor's Note: This article ap- peared in a recent edition of the ABA Journal and was pointed out to me. The article appears in its entirety. A local colleague of mine, a gentleman widely respected at the local bar for his accumulated knowledge (he preferred that it be referred to as "acumen," to keep his partners from becoming jeal- ous), has of late tragically come loose from his moorings, and, no, this is not just another lawyer story. His colleagues first became sus- picious that something was amiss when he began to giggle incessant- ly. The bar association's Standing Committee on Facade Mainten- ance convened a hearing, and holding that the practice of law is no laughing matter, it ruled that his unbridled gaiety was admissi- ble as evidence ipso facto of his transgression, and he was conse- quently committed to Limpid House for the Arguable Unbal- anced, where I recently visited him. Incurably af...

November 1983 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 7 STCL golf tournament proves successful by Joe E. Luce The STCL Annual Golf Tour- nament once again proved to be a great success. The competition was close, the fellowship fun, and the beer drinking steady. The championship flight provided great excitement as Marty Herring missed a par putt on the 18th hole to lose the championship to Richard Harrison. The two had been dead even all day with both players missing several putts. The first flight proved to be a runaway as David Bowers shot an 81 to beat his nearest competitors by seven shots. The second flight provided some excitement as Jim Hill edged out the early clubhouse leader, Dean Papas, by one stroke. Both players played excep- tionally well, shooting in the low 80's while being placed in the 90-100 grouping. In the third flight, Joan Milligan showed the group what it is all about by winning the flight by five strokes. Richard Harrison won the Longest Drive Contest enroute to his championshi...

Page 8 - ANNOTATIONS - November 1983 Non-registrant students denied financial aid On October 1, 1983, the Solo- mon Amendment denying Federal aid to non-registrant students will take effect as a result of a Supreme Court ruling. The Solo- mon Amendment requires stu- dents who are eligible for the registration to sign a statement stating that they have registered for the draft in order to receive Federal financial support. A Federal District Court judge had found the Solomon Amend- ment unconstitutional on June 16, 1983, on the grounds that it punishes people without due pro- cess of law and that it violates the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. On June 19, 1983, however, the Supreme Court.stayed the lower court in- junction until they make a final ruling in the case, which could come either very late in 1983 or early in 1984. According to the Central Com- mittee for Conscientious Objec- tors (CCCO), the nation's largest draft counseling agency, the effect of the Supr...

The ar- ticle in its entirety is well worth the effort to locate a copy of the magazine. The problem of stress is getting worse for all students, including those in law school, according to a recent article in The Wall Street Journal.

r December 1983 - ANNOTATIONS — Page 3 STCL student survives invasion of Grenada by David W. Holman During the early morning hours of Tuesday, October 25, 1983, while most law students were asleep, one South Texas student braved the tides of uncertain for- tune, political intrigue and per- sonal danger. Pam Davis, a se- cond year student at STCL, was caught up in the midst of the war in Grenada — and survived. It happened innocently. Pam's fiance, Paul Terracciano, was a student at St. Georges Medical College. Concerned about his safety in the wake of domestic tur- moil in Grenada, Pam travelled to the tiny island in an effort to con- vince him to return home. That was on Tuesday, October 11. When she arrived, she sensed the confusion in the island nation. A Cuban ship was moored in the harbor. There were rumors that the Prime Minister, Bishop, was sleeping in different homes each night to avoid detection and as- sassination. The Prime Minister had warned that invasion was im- minen...

Boozers claim intramural flag football title with 8-6 win over Darkhorse, October 23 by Kevin Bell and Dale O'Neal Intramural competition in flag football was completed on Oc- tober 23, with the Boozers claim- ing the title by virtue of their 8-6 win over Darkhorse in the cham- pionship game. The season's final contest was close all the way large- ly due to the domination of both teams' defenses. Bruce Rokohl and Chris Cántele anchored the defense for the Boozers, while Dave Suson and Joe Heard led the way for Darkhorse. The scoring was opened on a two-yard run by Kevin Bell and following a missed extra point, the Boozers were ahead 6-0. In the se- cond half, with the score still the same, Bru...

Turnage, Director, Selective Service System, has asked the American Bar Association to inform law students and law teachers of Selective Service registration requirements. Every male born in 1960 or thereafter must register for the draft. Willful failure to register or to keep Selective Service inform- ed of his current address is punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 or five years in prison, or both. Furthermore, the so-called Solomon Amendment states that any person who is required to register, but has failed to do so, is in- eligible to receive federally guaranteed student loans or other federal financial aid for students.

Over thirty teams entered in what has traditionally been a hotly contested competi- tion. In the final round, Liz Mat- thews and Lloyd Poe, winners of last year's competition, argued for the State with Olan Boudreaux and Richard Hogan representing the defendant. Boudreaux and Hogan represented a battered wife accused of murdering her hus- band. The State called the couple's maid who was present in- the house when the shooting oc- curred and the police officer who responded to the shooting. To support their defense, Boudreaux and Hogan put the defendant on the stand and called in a psycholo- gist who specialized in Battered- Woman Syndrome. Olan Boudreaux and Richard P.

Page 8 — ANNOTATIONS - December 1983 Phi Alpha Delta largest professional fraternity by Jeff Unger Why should you consider your fraternity? The Sam Houston Chapter of Phi Alpha Delta is you, and here's why. PHI ALPHA DELTA is the world's largest international pro- law fraternity. PAD has currently 163 chapters chartered at accredited law schools through- out the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico. PHI ALPHA DELTA is unique, in that it is the only law fraternity which traces its roots to a legal controversy. That controversy began on November 4,1897, when the Illinois Supreme Court adopted a rule retroactively af- fecting all candidates for admis- sion to the State Bar. In reaction, a group of students formed the "LAW STUDENT LEAGUE" with a purpose of obtaining an ex- emption from the rule for those students who had already entered law school. The league was suc- cessful in obtaining the exemption FORM H |llft (Alplja Jelia $¡afo Jfraternilg, l0,8^'°" APPLICATION FOR MEMBE...
