Snack Bar welcome addition to ST student lounge area
by Suzanne DuBas
The construction of the new
snack bar in the student lounge
area has been hailed by many as a
landmark event, rivaled only by
graduation from STCL or a pass-
ing score on the newly recon-
structed Texas Bar Exam. (Who
needs the multi-state section
anyway? After all, everyone
knows the entire United States is
moving to Texas.)
While Tony's and Charley's 517
are in no danger of losing their
clientele, the snack bar is definite-
ly haute cuisine when compared to
the stale peanut butter sandwich
in the bottom of your brief case,
or the sugar and carbohydrate
junk food in the vending ma-
chines.The snack bar serves ham-
burgers, sandwiches, salads,
pastries, and hot entrees. Bever-
ages include ice tea, lemonade,
Coke, Sprite, and Tab with as
much ice as you want and your
beverage in a cup, not down the
drain of the vending machine.
You can also select from several
sizes of drinks.
One delightful feature of the
snack bar is the cashier who smiles
at you, who can change crumpled
one dollar bills as well as the larger
denominations of wealthy stu-
dents, who isn't out of order or
out of change, and who says
thank you. Furthermore, the
cashier does not take your money.
unless she sees food in your hand.
Those crafty vending machines
are habitual offenders guilty of
theft on a regular basis. To make
matters worse, the vending
machines, not the law students,
are protected by the penal code. If
you were to try to recover your
last quarter with a screw driver, a
crowbar, or a .357 Magnum, you,
not the thieving machine, would
be doing time in TDC.
While most people are delighted
with the new snack bar, not every-
one is celebrating its opening. As
yet, few complaints have been
heard about the quality of the
food. Some students would like
later hours. Many students have
had to re-route their paths to the
phones, restrooms, and elevators.
Those students whose favorite
roosting sites were displaced by the

snack bar have had to relocate.
There may be some competition as
these refugees seek to establish
squatter's rights in new locations.
One student was particularly upset
that his favorite girl watching
bench had been replaced by a
wall. He has yet to find an equally
advantageous location from
which to practice his favorite
pastime. It is rumored that he is
researching the possibility that the
snack bar violates easement
rights.
By far the most disgruntled
group are those inveterate video
game addicts who were totally
disoriented by the disappearance
of Donkey Kong and Ms. Pac
Man. On the first day of class
many of their number were ob-
served stumbling toward the aban-
doned location of the games.
Their entire demeanor changed
upon discovery of the temporary
absence of their electronic tran-
Legal medicine students beginning
their own tradition at Medical Center
by Suzanne DuBas
The legal medical teams of Dr.
Charles Weigel may well be on
their way to establishing their own
tradition in the Texas Medical
Center — an interdisciplinary
liason between the legal and
medical communities. On Friday,
November 5, 1982, Dr. Weigel
and his legal medicine students
were among the guest speakers in
a continuing education seminar
held at the Medical Center Holi-
day Inn for the Patient Education
Exchange Group. Those attending
the seminar included professional
nurses and other medical person-
nel. Last year Dr. Weigel and his
students participated in a similar
program. A video tape was made
of that presentation and served to
guide this year's students. This
year's teams have been asked to
perform again in the spring. South
Texas College of Law students
who participated in the event were

quilizers. The vacant stare in their
eyes matched the vacant spot
against the wall. They stumbled
away mumbling to themselves and
cursing the snack bar which had
apparently brought about the
demise of their video arcade.
Their anxiety, however, has prov-
en to be short lived. Three new
video games were installed before
the end of the first week of
classes. Some students would have
preferred the blank wall to the
video games. However, Dean
Gene Jones reports that the
school's share of the game pro-
ceeds provides an emergency fund
for students who encounter tem-
porary financial difficulties.
Not withstanding these minor
difficulties, building superintend-
ent Clayton Jones and Dean Gar-
land Walker are to be congratu-
lated on achieving another historic
first at STCL — real food pre-
pared and served by real people.

law students were registered
nurses. Their medical experience
helped contribute to the success of
the presentation.
The law students dramatized
three hypothetical fact situations
between members of the medical
malpractice suits. The legal issues
centered around patient educa-
tion, responsibility, informed con-
sent, and duty of medical person-
nel. After each fact situation
another team of law students
established the reasonable stan-
dard of care in an adversary set-
ting through the examination of
expert witnesses. Law student
Charles Thrash rendered a judicial
decision on the specific points of
law raised in each fact situation.
Dr. Weigel then addressed the au-
