Page 6 ANNOTATIONS February, 1987 Charles McCabe, Class of '33 By Jane McClaine Charles F. McCabe, 1933 STCL graduate, didn't study law in any dark YMCA Dungeon. To set the record straight, says Mr. McCabe, classes were not held in the basement of the "Y'\ Classes were held on the second floor, along with the business classes which were also offered by the YMCA. McCabe, musing, has always wondered where that rumor got started. In a recent interview, Mr. McCabe, who will be 89 in May, shared other fond recollec- tions about the South Texas College of Law of yesteryear. Tuition was $85.00 for a school year of 36 weeks, for which, Mr. McCabe chuckles, "a ten percent discount was allowed if you paid early." And books were expensive, as they still are, except for the Civil Procedure materials. Mr. McCabe recalls that those were mimeo- graphed and handed out to the students. South Texas School of Law, the school's appellation in 1933, was located at the corner of Fannin and McKinney. The ...

February, 1987 - ANNOTATIONS — Page 7 Women In Law (Cont. from page 4) Of course, there are other prob- lems associated with the profession. Since the field has been predom- inately male, women have run into that all-evil term, discrimination. "There were judges who would call me 'sweetie* or -'doll face' through- out the trial, but it became easier to swallow when it was a bench trial and I won," said Baruch. Also, ac- cording to Baruch, judges would not let her represent a person because he was too dangerous or the defendants themselves did not want a woman as counsel. Following this discriminatory vein, many of the female attorneys also recognized the fact that men with the same degree and ex- perience are often being paid more than their female colleagues. The large firms have posed a special problem for women. The large amount of time required to practice in a firm has limited women. "Law firms don't under- stand women's multi-faceted responsibilities," according to practitione...

Frazier Activities planned for Law Week at South Texas College of Law included a mock trial compe- tition, campus visits by noted at- torneys and jurists, a discussion of using handwriting analysis to aid in jury selection and seminars to help students learn to form an "image for success." Law Week began Monday, March 4 and con- cluded March 14. Organizers of the second-annual week-long celebration have sought to provide a range of activities that are of value and interest to alumni, students and faculty, other members of the bench and bar, and the community at large. All presentations by speakers and competition rounds were open to the public. Law Week started Monday with an opportunity for students and faculty to gather, socialize and take pride in being a part of South Texas College of Law. Monday's party was sponsored by the Col- leg...

Page 2 — ANNOTA TIONS — March, 1987 EDITORIAL Law students learn how to rush through every task at the speed of light, always aware that there is at least fourteen times as much to be done as there is time to do it. In addition to a J.D. degree, law schools ought to offer an M.J., a Masters of Juggling. In all of this mad scramble to keep up with the tasks at hand, there is a tendancy to forget the reasons one decided to enter the profession in the first place. This is assuming, of course, that all of us ensconced in law school have given thought to "the profession", as opposed to only think- ing about entering law school merely because it seemed vaguely like a "good thing" to do at the time. There is a great deal being said and written these days about the sorry state of the people in the profession of law, a great deal of which has some validity. It is too much for which to hope that not only the brightest, but the best (and most moral and ethical) would be called to the bar; this...

March, 1987 ANNOTATIONS Page 3 First Semester Woes Be Gone By S.F. Semester (With a lot of help from Lylene Pilkenton, STCL Registrar) Hi. My name is Susie First Semester. In case you're wonder- ing, 1 just began law school this semester. I am one of the lucky students in that I had my courses selected for me. My registration was so easy. All I had to do was show up on registration day, get my scheduled placed in the com- puter and pay my money. I wonder what I should do to register for next semester? I bet I don't have to do anything. I bet the Registrar's office will do everything for me. All I will have to do is show up for class because I know my classes will be assigned to me again. I'm not going to worry about any- thing. On second thought, I remember at orientation the Regis- trar telling us to always ask when in doubt. Maybe I should go ask her or one of her assistants, just to make sure. I'm sure glad I went to talk to the Registrar. Now I know the pro- cedure for registrat...

March, 1987 — ANNOTATIONS PageS Financial Aid Changes Affect STCL Students By Judy Gammage The Higher Education Reautho- rization Act was signed into law by President Reagan on October 17, 1986. The new law contains signi- ficant changes which will impact on students' eligibility to receive student loans. Here are the highlights of the act: 1. Requires all guaranteed stu- dent loan (GSL) applicants to complete a financial aid form from a federally approved analysis service. South Texas College of Law uses the Ameri- can College Testing Service (ACT) and forms may be ob- tained in the financial aid of- fice. New forms for the 1987-88 academic year will be available at the end of Febru- ary, 1987. All applicants, regardless of income, must have an expected family con- tribution factored into their student aid package. Eligibility no longer depends upon pre- vious year's adjusted gross in- come. No guaranteed student loan application can be pro- cessed without a student aid report from...

Page 6 — ANNOTATIONS — March, 1987 Movie Review Kong in wrong jungle By Anne Cherrington The month of March is tradi- tionally the time of year when few new movies open and Oscar-nomi- nated movies are re-released to take advantage of revived public- ity and renewed interest in the bet- ter films made in the past year. Ac- cordingly, this month 1 thought I would take a brief look at some ex- cellent performances in several very good pictures that are cur- rently showing in Houston. PLATOON MftlwCovwMn Ml a** Platoon, of course, is the big film of the moment. It has a com- pelling subject, dynamite perform- ances, most notably Tom Beren- ger's, who is nominated for his supporting role, and a little real- life drama attached to it — Oliver Stone's artistic and personal strug- gle to get his Vietnam experience on film. Its realism makes it a tough movie to watch, but it has been very well received by critics and the public and is a shoo-in to be named Best Picture. My personal choice f...

March, 1987 — ANNOTA TIONS — Page 7 Movie Review cont.fromPg. 6 Team Attends Bailey Competition eoes to established actresses I run fc%r har mA Ai> goes to established actresses. I think Sissy Spacek will win because of her fine performances this year in Crimes of the Heart and 'Night, Mother. In fact, she had a stronger role in the latter film, and I suppose was nominated for Crimes because it was a more widely-distributed movie. Kathleen Turner will give Spacek a run for her money — she is nominated for the wonderful role she had in Peggy Sue Got Married. Law school certainly does not lend itself to leisure time in which to go to the movies, but the above- mentioned movies are so good and so entertaining that a few relaxing hours seeing one or two of them would be time well spent. Advocates Hold Seminar A mock trial skills seminar was sponsored by the Board of Advo- cates on Saturday, February 28. The seminar was aimed at intro- ducing students to the basic methods of putting o...

March/April 1968 — ANNOTATIONS - Pa* 3 Practitioners Special Agent Johnnie L. Joyce-FBI by M ike Lewis Boston, New York City, Los Angeles, and Houston have been home for Johnnie L. Joyce since joining the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The subjects of his cases have ranged from stolen jade artifacts to selective service invol- vement with the Bureau and enter- tains a sense of pride about his position in the community. Born and raised in North Carol- ina, Joyce entered the FBI with undergraduate and law degrees from Duke University. He admits that he did not know why he wanted a law degree; but after hearing about the FBI, decided it would provide him the chance to do something other than sit behind a desk and conduct legal research. He has not been disappointed by that description of the Bureau. After fifteen weeks of training, he was assigned to Boston, Massa- chusetts. As he gained experience, his assignments gained complex- ity. During his year and a half in Boston (a town he ...

First, the L-SAT, then admission to law school, followed by graduation from law school, and lastly, pass- ing THE BAR. THE BAR (a phrase spoken by law students as if it were in caps), merely one more examination, is governed by rules promulated by the Texas Supreme Court. Offered in February and July, the exam lasts for 2Vi days and consists of two parts. Part I, also known as the Multistate, covers six subjects, i.e. Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts.

P ge8 — ANNOTATIONS — March/April 1988 Movie Review FRANTIC gives you sandpaper nerves by Dale Paschall Time was, when you pulled your hoopy into the local gas station you'd just tell Gomer to fill'er up.

Not so anymore. All the gizmos and computers and bureaucracies require so much paperwork to simplify our lives that buying any item makes you think that you're fil- ling out the paperwork on a home mortgage. The bureaucracies and computers and there attendant paperwork and the lies...the lies, slicked down by saddlesoap, that the average citizen is supposed to swallow whole are enough to make you want to break out the training manuals written by Che or the Aryan Brotherhood.
