Page 4 —AMUTATION— April 1985 {- * STCL Bistro enlarges menu By Rob Rotunda Staff Writer The recently renovated Bistro on the first floor of the Cullen Build- ing at South Texas College of Law has added a number of tantalizing delicacies to their already out- standing menu. Included on the new smorgas- bord are new epicurean and gastro- nomic delights. For light savoring are new a la carte concoctions, such as, Taco Gazpacho, fried vichyssoise, borscht chili and nachos froie gras. For those who prefer to glutonize there are such culinary masterpieces as liver and onion fajitas, beef Well- ington burgers, escargot burritos and cheese whiz croissants. After reviewing the college's new menu, the Houston city council ap- propriated funds to connect South Texas to the city's underground tunnel system. "All Houstonians should be able to enjoy the delights of STCL's new Bistro," Mayor Kathy Whitmire said. In the future, Mayor Whitmire said tunnel plans include connect- ing the Montrose are...

Page 5 -AMUTATION- April 1985 STCL alumni make news in criminal justice Alumni crime corner This man, Sven Leighen Hosen, was indicted for posing in cheesey Swiss films and for distributing them in this country. He was last seen at Caligula's burlesque house on Westheimer. Maurice Francoise Bolla, a/k/a Morey Frank, is wanted by the FBI, Interpol, the Italian papparizzi, the French government and the United Nations Children's Fund in an international billion-dollar art scam. Allegedly, Bolla single- handedly reproduced one-third of the masters in the Louvre, the entire de Medici collection in Florence, Italy, and U.N.I.C.E.F.'s original Crayola drawings for its 1986 Christmas cards. Bolla's reproductions reportedly are being fronted in the U.S. by a Palm Beach, Florida, art dealer, and in the Middle East by a former FBI agent posing as a sheik. This man, Charles Johnson, a/k/a Charles the Churl, is wanted for being the baddest of the churls and one mean motorscooter. Re- portedly, h...

April 1985 •ANNOTATIONS— Page 7 Entertainment 'Witness' — A taut thriller By Morris D. Weiss Staff Writer "Witness" is a well-paced, grip- ping detective movie. At the begin- ning of the film a young Amish boy, Samuel Lapp (Lukas Haas), is accompanying his widowed mother Rachel (Kelly McGillis) on a visit to his Aunt in Baltimore. They stop at Penn Station and while awaiting the next train Samuel witnesses a mur- der. John Book (Harrison Ford) is the police detective in charge of the investigation. Based on his suspi- cions and Samuel's identification, Book believes there are some cops on the take who committed the murder. It seems that the murderee stumbled upon information hazard- ous to his health. Fearful for Rachel and Samuel's life, Book, after being wounded, retreats with them to Amish Country in Pennsylvania. After he is healed he remains to pro- tect them. What separates "Witness" from countless other detective movies is the complexity of the interpersonal relationships. Pa...

Page 10 —ANNOTATIONS— April 1985 Realize the excitement behind 'International Shoe' By, Prof. Steven R. Finz The chances are that when you started law school, someone met you at the door to tell you what a good time you were about to have. It might have been the dean, or some enthusiastic professor, or maybe a senior student out to ease some of your paranoia about enter- ing a new environment. Whoever it was probably said that it was going to be hard work, but that you were going to love every minute of it. Especially the cases! Every one of them will be fascinating and ex- citing, you were promised. Like a short story, each decision presents an absorbing soap-opera episode which expounds upon the law while it entertains with a real-life drama involving real-life litigation. The person who told you that tale, couldn't have been thinking about International Shoe. The In- ternational Shoe case is a land- mark, to be sure. So much so, in fact, that it has become almost im- possible to ...

Page 2 —THE ANNOTATION— September 1985 The Sleaze Factor During a recent trip to England, the opportunity arose to view a theft trial in action at the "Old Bailey", London's ancient (by Houston standards) criminal tribunal. Barristers clad in the classic robe and wig ensemble displayed seemingly flawless advocacy skills with an enviable level of articulation. And though the crisp speech and evidentiary knowledge each of the barristers displayed were impressive, one image remains as a lasting impression of the visit: These guys dripped with HONOR! Their respect for one another was obvious. Witnesses were referred to as "sir" or "madam". The judge was addressed as "My Lord". The experience was very exciting ... but saddening. Saddening because I thought of another "trial" I had recently sat through here in the States; a mock trial round here at STCL. The judge of that round was a Harris County Assistant District Attorney. Though he had little critique to offer the competitors he did h...

For those who were hitting the beach this summer, "the survey" was a 25 part questionnaire distributed at school on June 24, 25 and 26. One of the purposes was to gather student feedback regarding the new class schedule . . . Monday/ Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday. The pertinent questions and responses on class schedul- ing were: 1. Do you prefer principal classes being scheduled on Monday/ Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday? 193 said YES (122 fulltime and 70 parttime) 137 said NO (64 fulltime and 73 parttime) 2.

September 1985 -THE ANNpTATION— Page 5 Gravitations By Prof. R.J Graving South Africa and the Law There is a kind of Gresham's law at work in the debate about South African sanctions. The "good" words have been hoarded and driven out of circulation by the "bad". Intemperate outbursts of the following kind do nothing but debase the currency of public discourse: 2. Who then have locus standi to complain? In the Barcelona Traction Case (Belgium v. Spain) (1970), the World Court distinguished between obligations of a state vis-a-vis another state and obligations towards the international community as a whole. The latter it termed "obligations erga omnes" — towards all — and said: "34. Such obligations derive, for example, in contemporary in- ternational law, from the outlawing of acts of aggression, and of genocide, as also from the principles and rules concerning the basic rights of the human person, including protection from slavery and racial discrimination." The United States is thu...

September 1985 —THE ANNOTATION- Page9 The Bar Review by Laura Peters The Ale House - 2425 West Alabama We found this place trying to escape the seventeen and eighteen year olds at the Boardwalk. We would tell you more but we are afraid you will find it and we will be left to stand in line when it gets cold! However, we will say there's not a better place in Houston to drink beer because of the vast selection. The downstairs jukebox is second to none and the upstairs live entertain- ment is a great bargain. Kay's Lounge - 2324 Bissonet If you want the flavor of a deep east Texas honky tonk while getting some "deep" intellectual insights from Rice Ph.D. candidates, here is definitely the place for you. It's a prerequisite to play "A White Sport- coat" by Marty Robbins on Kay's "oldies of the past" jukebox. For a law student on a shoestring the beer prices are tough to beat.

September 1985 -THE ANNOTATION- Continued from page 10 interpretation generally, see Kelso & Kelso, Studying LaW: An Introduction Ch. 5 (1984). In the federal system, the Formalist Plain Meaning Rule — that only the statute's plain, literal meaning can be consulted if the statute is unambiguous — has been clearly rejected. As the United States Supreme Court noted in the well-known case of United States v. American Trucking Association, 310 U.S. 534, 543-44 (1940): When aid to construction of the meanings of words, as used in a statute, is available, there certainly can be no "rule of law" which forbids its use, however clear the words may appear on "superficial examination." Occasionally, however, a remaining formalist judge in the lower federal courts pretends not to have heard the message. See generally Murphy, Old Maxims Never Die — The "Plain Meaning Rule" and Statutory Interpreta- tion in the "Modern" Federal Courts, 75 Colum. L. Rev. 1299 (1975). As between the Holmesian a...
