July 1984 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 5 "THaoie By Morris D. Weiss Summer movies less than thrilling The Breakdance: a limited genre An overview of the "hip-hop" culture, as it is called, creates a backdrop upon which to measure the films "Beat Street" and "Breakin." Hip-hop encompasses breakdancing, rap music and graf- fiti. The breakdance phenomenon began in the mid-1970s in South Bronx, New York. For street gangs, breakdancing became an alternative to fights; instead of cutting one another with weapons they "cut" one another with their dancing. Rap music's origin is Jamaica, where disc jockeys would play in- strumental reggae records and rap, ("toast" in their vernacular), about subjects which suited their whim-usually sex and politics. Black DJs in New York City clubs appropriated the idea and rapped while playing records. Eventually, studio "rap" records were re- leased, epitomized by Grand- master Flash and the Furious Five's "The Message" and Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Forc...

Boltze This divorce case may be of in- terest to those students who par- ticipated in Spurgeon Bell Moot Court Competition. Appellant, David Boltze, complains of the trial court's ruling on the property issues. The primary asset of the parties' community estate was a promissory note payable to both parties for the sale of their home. Appellant seeks to modify the court's ruling regarding his right of reimbursement for the funds from the sale of his separate pro- perty. He contends separate funds were used to purchase the com- munity property residence. Date of Appeal: July 24 Wilson v. The State of Texas Appellant was charged with ag- gravated sexual abuse of a child. The trial court overruled appel- lant's Motion for Instructed Ver- dict after the prosecution rested its case.

"Trinity has established intern- ship programs with hospitals all over the region," he said. One of the Institute's first pro- jects is the publication of Texas Health Manual, which is sche- duled to be published in the fall, Dr. Richards said. The manual is aimed at health care providers and attorneys who represent health care providers. "There are very few programs like this in the country," he said. It provides a unique opportunity to students who are interested in health law, to work on real re- search projects and have an op- portunity to be involved with the practice of health law in the com- munity A background in the sciences is not an essential requisite for the program, said Dr. Richards, al- though it is helpful. Other Institute projects will develop special course materials on Texas health law "aimed more at health care as a b...

Walker tenders resignation By Barbara Pusch Editor Dean Garland R. Walker, the father of South Texas College of Law, resigned Friday, Oct. 26, because of failing health. Dean Walker tendered his resig- nation to a specially-called meeting of the executive board of the col- lege's Board of Directors. In a telephone interview that evening, Dean Walker said he asked to be moved to the position of president of the Board of Direc- tors because, "I can no longer manage my other functions" as Dean of the law school. "I could not continue to do justice to the law school and con- tinue in the capacity I've been able to function in until now. It was an effort to come down here today." At press time, the Board of Directors was scheduled to meet Nov. 1 to determine the steps necessary for finding a new Dean of STCL. An official announce- ment prepared by E. E. Townes, Jr., Chairman of STCL's Board of Directors, regarding the Dean's resignation was read in all classes Oct. 29. Dean Walker said h...

Page 2 — ANNOTATIONS - October 1984 Editorial Thank you. Dean Walker Dean Garland R. Walker's resignation as chief ad- ministrator of South Texas College of Law came as a surprise to many. We now have the difficult task of say- ing goodbye. There is no doubt that Dean Walker has been an in- spiration to many. His humility in the face of a lifetime of accomplishment, his commitment and dedication to the college, his integrity, perseverance and forthright- ness, are qualities which have made the man great. As students, we can only be grateful that the Dean focused his energies and talents on this law school, for he has left us a legacy of which we can be proud. There are many of us who have very personal thanks to express to Dean Walker. One STCL alumnus told the story of his acceptance to STCL. This young man had been rejected by other law schools and was re- jected by South Texas as well. Nevertheless, on the ad- vice of a friend, the young man drove to Houston and requested an inte...

You went to college because your parents told you to. I hope you went to law school because you told you to. It was hard to get into law school and I can promise that it is even harder to get out. For some of you, the light is beginning to appear at the end of the tunnel. That light is graduation and a job. Reactions to that light vary from total panic to the security of knowing your father is a Texas Supreme Court judge. Before you drop out of law school or drop into your father's practice, stop and think — What is my dream? In order to thoroughly research this subject I talked with two people who have completely different perspectives. The first is my friend Ralph. You know, Ralph Nadar, (thud) consumer advocate.

October 1984 - ANNOTATIONS - Page 5 College wins ABA division award South Texas College of Law was awarded the Outstanding Student Bar Association Award during the national ABA Annual Convention held in Chicago, 111., Aug. 2-5. The award was presented by Crockett Cobble, President of Na- tional Student Bar Association. While lawyers and legal vendors from all over the country gathered at the Hyatt Hotel for the ABA Expo, the ABA Law Student Divi- sion Annual Meeting was under way about 10 blocks away at the Palmer House. Fun, yes. But quite a lot of serious work went on too. Most of the first day was devoted to inter- views, question and answer sessions and speeches by candidates for the position of Division Delegate. Daniel Gelber, University of Florida, and John Stobierski, Suf- folk University Law School, were chosen to represent the Law Stu- dent Division to the ABA House of Delegates.

Page 6 — ANNOTATIONS - October 1984 I i Elvis Presley golden tribute released Morris D. Weiss Staff Writer As what would have been Elvis Presley's 50th birthday approach- es, RCA, for whom he recorded, has issued an ambitious six-album boxed set which contains previously unreleased recordings. The set, entitled "Elvis — A Golden Celebration", affords an opportunity to review Elvis' early career and to put his accomplish- ments into perspective. To be sure there is some dross amid the gems in "Elvis — A Golden Celebration" but it is an important document for the music buff, the music historian and Elvis fans alike. How Elvis actually created the music that ultimately made him the "King" of rock and roll is shroud- ed in mystery. What we do know is that Elvis was with Sun Records for 16 months from 1954-'55, and that Sun sold his contract to RCA in November 1955. When RCA purchased Elvis' contract they bought everything Elvis had recorded at Sun Records. Literally, boxes of magnetic t...

"How many of you would pre- fer to practice public interest law if you got the same salary if you were paid by Baker & Botts?" he asked.

Summer, 1985 THE ANNOTATION— Page 3 Bonewell Accepts Challenge By William L. Yanger Editor Newly elected SBA President Linda Bonewell realizes the organi- zation she now oversees may have an image problem. In an interview with Annotations, she readily agreed that some stu- dents have lost faith in their repre- sentative organization. "We lack respect," she candidly admitted. But, she said, that is her challenge. "I want to make the SBA a credi- ble organization," Ms. Bonewell said. But she realizes she cannot do it on her own. "An organization is composed of people working towards a common goal," she said. "People with enthu- siasm, motivation and dedication to those goals make the organization succeed. "The recently elected Board of Governors," she continued, "is destined to succeed as each officer has already exhibited an outstanding degree of enthusiasm as well as dedi- cation to the goals thus far estab- Linda Bonewell lished by the Board."
