If there is any doubt in your mind as to the importance of
labor law or as to the incidence of litigation in the field of labor
management relations, takt a look at any Federal advance sheet or
at the decisions of the United States Supreme Court during any
court term. You will find cases in almost every advance she ~ t
under the heading "Labor Relations," and frequently will find much
of a weekly issue devoted to such cases. This, of course, is only
that portion of the iceberg which appears above the surface. Below
the court level, is a vast and growing volume of board decisions,
administrative rulings and decisions of various kinds and arbitration cases.
Recent United States Supreme Court decisions have opened
the flood gates to labor arbitration and have underlined the vital
importance of careful draftsmanship in negotiating and writing
collective bargaining agreements.
In Textile Wor!wrs Union of America vs. Lincoln Mills of Alabama, 1 LEd 2d 972, 40 LRRM 2113, 1957, the Supreme Court
held that Section 301 of the Labor Management Relations Act of
1947 ( 29 USCA S 18 5) authorized federal courts "to fashion a
body of federal law" for the enforcement of collective bargaining
agreements and held that a federal district court could compel
arbitration of a controversy involving work loads and work assignments, under the terms of the contract in question .
In June of 1960, the Supreme Court handed down decisions in
three cases involving the scope of arbitration agreements in collective bargaining contracts: Unitrd Steelworkers of America vs. American Manufacturing Co., 4 LEd 2d 1403, 46 LRRM 2414; United
Steel-workers of America us. Warrior & Gulf Nauigation ComjJany,
4 LEd 2d 1409, 46 LRRM 2416; United Steelworker's of America
vs. Enterjnise Wheel & Car Corp., 4 LEd 2d 1424, 46 LRRM 2423.
In American Manufacturing Company, an employee claiming to
be permanently disabled filed a workman's compensation claim .
A few days after the settlement of the claim in which he was paid
a substantial sum of money, he sought to return to work . When
the company declined to employ him, the union sought to submit
the matter to arbitration under the collective bargaining contract.
The Court of Appeals in affirming the District Court's dismissal
of the union's suit held that the grievance was "a frivolous, patently
baseless one, not subject to arbitration under the collective bargaining agreement." 264 F. 2d 624. The Supreme Court reversed the
District Court and the Court of Appeals, holding that under the
terms of the contract, the courts "have no business weighing the
merits of the grievance."
In Warrior Navigation Company, the employer operated a shop
for normal maintenance of its barges but was not equipped to make
major repairs and accordingly, over a period of more than nineteen
( 19) years, had contracted out much of its repair work. When the
company, in accordance with its practice, sought to contract out
some of the repair work, the union questioned its right to do so
and sought arbitration. Here again the Supreme Court reversed
the District Court and Court of Appeals and held that since the
contract did not make it clear that the company had the right to
contract work and that such prerogative was not subject to arbitration, the matter was to be decided by an arbitrator. Justice
Whittaker, in dissenting, pointed out that the majority had departed
from the established law, that the ousting of the normal functions
of the courts and the vesting in arbitrators of authority and power
"must rest upon a clear, definitive agreement of the parties." The
court held that under the broad arbitration clause in the contract,
any subject was arbitrable unless the language of the contract in
clear and unmistakable terms excluded the subject from arbitrati:m.
In Enterprise Wheel & Car Corp., a group of employees, in
violation of the contract, left their jobs. The company discharged
them. An arbitrator, while holding that they acted wrongfully,
in effect held that the disciplinary action was too severe. The
award of the arbitrator was admittedly vague and ambiguous. The
Supreme Court held that under the terms of the contract in question,
the arbitrator's award had to be enforced. The court held that
arbitrators have no obligation "to give reasons for an award" or to
write awards "free of ambiguity."
. In a recent arbitration case where an employer had moved his
factory from New York City to a new location in Mississippi, an
arbitrator awarded, as damages against the company, more than
$200,000.00 and required that the company move its factory back
to New York. Jack Meilman, 34 LA 771.

PLUMB--ALSA
CHAIRMAN
Peter N. Plumb of the St. Mary's University School of Law
has been named Chairman of the
Audio- Visual Committee of the
American Law Student Association, one of the top positi:ms in
that American Bar Associationsponsored organization. His appointment was announced by
ALSA President James Dan
Batchelor, Oklahoma University
Law School.

LAW STUDENTWRITER
Douglas Drury, a part-time
law student, Assistant Principal
of a local junior high school,
College instructor, holder of
two Master degrees, a jet pilot
instructor, and all-state high
school quarterback has now
added another to his list of accomplishments.
Mr. Drury has written a book,
Earl Warren, The Supreme
Court and Cii'i! Rights, which
will be released soon by the Naylor Publishing Company of San
Antonio. It is a modification
of a thesis written by the author toward a Master's Degree.
Surprisingly, the author relates to us that there is a scarcity of material written. on the
Chief Justice and consequently
many a scholarly hour was consumed in completing the outline of the opinions and decisions of the "Warren Era" in the
High Tribunal in book form.
These opinions mainly concern
litigation involving civil liberties.
Of interest is a cross-reference made to the opinions of
Mr. Justice Warren which were
used in the writing of the book.
Mr. Drury is also co-authoring a hook with Mr. Tony E.
Duty, Assistant City Attorney
of Waco, Texas, to be entitled
Texas Educators and Their Legal
Liability, for release this summer.

PETER PLUMB

JUDGE NORVELL

Judge James R. Norvell, Associate Justice of the Supreme
Court of Texas, spoke at the
Student Assembly on Friday,
February 10, 1961. Justice Norvell spoke of the early history
of the Supreme Court of the
State of Texas. His vivid description of the Court in its
early days, and its development
over more than a century of
years was enlightening. Of particular interest was his description of the Court during its trying times following the Civil
War-the era of the "SemiColon Court."

The Audio- Visual Committee
is one of the 18 committees of
ALSA which "are responsible for
maintammg the quality and
value of services upon which
the Association's reputation and
progress are based," according to
Batchelor. As chairman, Plumb
will direct the work of committeemen representing other top
law schools throughout the nation.
Organized in 1949, the American Law Student Association
represents and serves
some
35,000 law students in 128 law
schools-nearly every approved
law school in the United States.
The purposes of ALSA are directed toward improving professional preparation-with resulting benefits to the individual, the profession and the public. The St. Mary's University
Barristers Student Bar Association has been a member of
ALSA since 1951.

EDITORIAL
The world today is divided into two camps. By direction they
are denominated "East" and "West"; by political philosophy they
are called "Communistic" and "Democratic"; by popular description
they are labeled "The Free" and "The Enslaved." These views emphasize the chasm rife between these two segments of humanity.
The modern attempt to bridge this cleft is popularly termed
"Peaceful Co-existence." In reality this buffer is more in the nature of a needled porcupine than a downy pillow. Wherein lies the
reason or principle which places the leadership of approximately
one half of the world at loggerheads with the rest of the nations?
The disagreement is founded in the very nature of man and his
relation to the State. Western Democracy believes that man is a
free individual, who, in the words of the American Declaration of
Independence, is endowed by his creator with certain inalienable
rights, among which are the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happiness. In Democracy, the state is the product of men, banning together to rule themselves. In Communism, as known to the
world today, man is not free; he is not an individual, except numerically; there is no creator, since there is no God; man has no rights,
much less inalienable rights; his life, liberty, and happiness are to
further the state into which he is born, and under whose iron rule
he is a material statistic. This is more than academic hair-splitting
between philosophers; more than an argument between overlapping
economic or social theories; more than campaigning against political
foes; more than religious controversy. This "argument" embodies
all these and more because it strikes at the very nature of man.
Under Communism, man is merely the "cog" in the machinery of
the state, to be discarded and replaced when he no longer functions
properly.
It is between these principles, that "Peaceful Co-existence" is
placed . Co-exist we must but peaceful it will never be, until the
underlying philosophies are changed to find some common ground.
Our co-existence must be guided by a wary eye. History has shown
us the treachery and folly of relying on the word of the Communist
leadership. Abundant example is had in its dealing with Nazi Germany, where they met as bitter foes on the country-side of Spain,
previewing World War II, in 1936; an abrupt about-face in their
Pact in 19 3 9, when they carved each his share of Europe in anticipation of the War; and the shameful reversal of this Pact in 1941.
An unwavering watchfulness, and an unyielding hand must be the
standards of the West in this struggle.
It is hoped that when man has once again universally regained
his stature as the crowning glory of God's creation on earth, and
regain it he will, we of the West will not have first been assimulated by the "Red Bear."

FRATERNITIES

A lawyer must feel pride in
the development and accomplishment of his profession to perform his duties property. This
pride can be instilled in a law
student on the first day in a
Ia w school as well as in later
years. As an instructor and
attorney, Professor Frank J.
Greene realizes the responsibility
rests with him.
Professor Greene received his
early education in Port Arthur,
Ontario, Canada, where he was
born. In 1943 he interrupted his
high school education to join the
Canadian Navy. After serving
two years in the navy he completed high school and attended
the University of Toronto, receiving _ B. A. degree in busia
ness and engineering. Professor
Greene worked in the engineering field in Canada for four
years and became active in politics. For two years he was President of the Young Conservatives
of Ontario. He also served as a
member of the Board of Education of Port Arthur.

MR. FRANK GREENE

His experience in business and
politics led him to the study of
law at the University of Miami.
While a student there he joined
Phi Delta Phi Legal Fraternity,
Omicron Delta Kappa and Alpha
Sigma Epsilon, national honor
fraternities, Iron Arrow, and the
Bar and Gavel Legal Society.
Professor Greene also served as
executive editor of the law school
newspaper and as executive editor
and editor-in-chief of the Miami
Law Review. He was Chief Jus- .
tice of the Honor Court. As the
outstanding graduate of his class
he was awarded a fellowship to
the University of London.
His fellowship to Kings College, London, included graduate
study in international law, jurisprudence, business law, and
comparative law. Mr. and Mrs.
Greene traveled throughout Europe, climaxing their tour with
an audience with Pope Pius XII.
Upon completion of these studies, Professor Greene
was
awarded a teaching fellowship
to Yale. He remained at Yale
for one and one-half years where
he earned his M. A. degree m
195 8.
(Continued on Page 4)

Being initiated as an honorary
member was Professor Leo
Brewer, St. Mary's University
Law School. Mr. Brewer has
been an outstanding professor of
law at St. Mary's for four years .
He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and Harvard
School of Law. He is a member
of the Order of the Coif and belongs to the American, Texas
and San Antonio Bar Associations. From 1919 to 1921 he
was an Assistant United States
Attorney and from 1926 to 1928
was a professor of law at Texas
University. Mr. Brewer served
as chairman to the San Antonio
Board of Education from 1941
to 194 5. He is a former senior
partner of the firm Brewer, Matthews, Nowlin and Macfarlane.
During the years 1945-1947,
Mr. Brewer served as a member
of the Board of Trustees of San
Antonio Junior College and was
President of the San Antonio
Public Library Board, 1953-54.
He is a member of the Board of
Trustees of St. Mary's University Law School and an ex-officio member of the Executive
Council of the Law School.

LABORIn a recent decision by the
U. S. District Court for the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Brooks Shoe Manufacturing
Co., was held liable for $28,011.00 actual damages and
$5 0,000.00 punitive damages, or
a total of $78,011.00 for moving its factory from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Hanover,

The success or failure of any
business is dependent upon management. The continued existence of our system of free enterprise is dependent upon the
preservation of management's
right to manage. This right can
only be protected and safeguarded by carefully drawn contracts.
Justice Brennan and Harlan in
a separate opinion in the three
1960 cases above referred to
(4 LEd 2d 1432) pointed out

that "the arbitration promise is
itself a contract. The parties
are free to make that promise as
broad or as narrow as they wish,
for there is no compulsion in
law requiring them to include
any such promise in their agreement."

The Perils of
Cross-Examination
According to the Reno, Nevada Evening Gazette, of December 24, 1958 one Adams,
charged with a $50 0 bank robbery, attempted to conduct his
own defense in the trial of his
case in a Federal Court.
Acting as his own lawyer,
Adams was cross-examining the
bank teller who had faced the
stick-up man.
"Was t h e b a n k robber
frightened?" asked Adams.
"Yes," replied the teller.
"Then why did you give me
th. . . I mean the bank robber
the money?" said Adams, with
a classic slip of the tongue.
Later, as he cross-examined
another witness about the color
of a jacket worn by the alleged
robber, Adams gained the reply
that it was either blue-gray or
gray.
"Well, when I bought it they
told me it was blue," he interjected.
The jury deliberated less than
an hour, found Adams guilty.Contributed by William C. Sanford, Esq., Reno, Nevada.

THE REASON WHY

Peter N. Plumb

Calvin Parrish

This year as last, St. Mary's
University School of Law is the
seat for the chairmanship of the
American Law Student Association's Audio- Visual Committee.
As such, St. Mary's is charged
with the not so light responsibility of achieving the audiovisual goals set by the National
Association for the current
school year. The instructions
directed to this years audiovisual committee are as follows:
( 1 ) Prepare a list of the currently available tape recordings
for publication in the Student
Lawyer Journal.
( 2) Select and prepare a list
of particularly good films for
showing to the following groups:
Law students, pre-law students,
laymen in conjunction with LawDay observances.
( 3 ) Prepare suggested programs on various topics utilizing
legal films . The programs should
be on subjects of practical and
educational interest to law students such as: A. Penal conditions and needed reforms. B.
Filing your first case. C. Examining a medical witness. D. Argument to the jury.
( 4) Prepare a letter for mailing to Student Bar Associations
suggesting the recording of lectures and moot court arguments
for retention in the law school
library. For example, lectures
providing a summary of certain
areas of law might be made
available in the law school
library, and the tape recorder
provided by the Student Bar Association.
These are the official instructions for the 1960-1961 year.
As may be easily noted the goals
desired will require a maximum
of effort from each committee
member.
To date the committee has
moved forward relatively well,
completing one instruction and
making substantial progress on
the remaining assignments. A
letter suggesting the taping of
lectures and moot court arguments has been prepared and
mailed to each law school in the
association. Likewise a survey
letter has been formulated which
will be sent to all member
schools, requesting information
concerning newly recorded material and new audio-visual
sources. Other groups and associations such as the American
Medical Association, the Library
of Congress, and the Government

As I entered the hall I seemed to sense an ominous chill, but
I shook off the feeling of impending doom and with a melodious
whistle went forward bravely, for I was going to see if any grades
were up yet. I paused confidently and casually by the water
cooler, for my throat was as dry as an eight o'clock professor's
humor. I was very wary at this stage, though I managed to conceal my apprehensions, for the bulletin-board was not far from
this very area. The air was filled with a chattering sound, as of
gnashing teeth, the monotony of which was somewhat lessened by
an occasional low-pitched whine or growl, depending on the potential virility of the individual venting the same. While in this
deep reverie I paused with alacrity to note that my feet were getting
wet. Lifting my eyes (always the man of action) I saw what appeared to be a babbling brook coming in my direction, flowing
from South to North in a most untoward m anner, and I knew then
that this was a stream composed of tears and the babbling came
from my classmates. Rushing past the stair-well I abruptly came
upon a scene of utter chaos.

The grades were up. The cacophony of sound was deafening,
but I was able to catch a few of the more carefully enunciated
phrases (ever in the legal manner) . One of my nobler companions
lay prostrate, clutching his canned briefs to his chest (solace is
where you find it) declaiming vehemently, "He never covered
that point in class." One rather stout individual (that's stout as
in fat) muttered to himself convincingly and repeatedly and finally
complacently, shrugging his shoulders gracefully each time, "So
who cares; what's legal about legal accounting?" I was unable to
move for long moments, but I felt such compassion for these
unfortunates that with a supreme effort I sprang into action. I
forthwith passed among them, kicking study-aids aside as I went,
trying to lift their spirits, telling them "There's no instructor like
a good instructor," and other equally heartening cliches and
misnomers. After diligent efforts on my part the crisis was over
and small groups began purposefully moving toward the library.
One small though robust individual, carried on the shoulders of the
crowd like the champion he is, seemed to echo everyone's thoughts
as he said in broken English, "Next semester's gonna be different.
Next time I'll make my own outline."
