Judge Joe B. Brown Jr., told justices and constables attending the annual Justice of the Peace and Constable School, that al though they cannot administer the new law, it “is useful to ad vise the irate landlord who is complaining of deception.” Enacted in 1967, the law, Arti cle 1553A of the Penal Code, makes it a violation for any per son to obtain occupancy of prem ises by fraud, trick, deception, Freshmen Get Briefing From Company Reps Schiili Six engineers opened the Spring Visiting Engineer Program here Monday. They are the first of 24 engi neers across the state providing freshmen engineering students with a better understanding of engineering and its application through cooperation of visiting engineers from various industries, said James H, Earle. Earle, associate professor in charge of Engineering Graphics identified the engineers as J. M. West, Standard Oil; W. T. Asbill, Union Carbide; A1 Sexton, TRW Systems Group; C. N. Segnar, Standard Oil, and L. A. Larrey, Union Carbide. The men are from Houston. The sixth engi neer, C. C. Crittenden, Gulf Oil, is from Corpus Christi. OTHER ENGINEERING teams visiting during the week include Larry Denton, Mobil Oil, Corpus Christi; W. A. Ball Jr., Central Power and Light, Corpus Christi; and E. H. Korth, U. S. Industries, Houston, on March 18. Two teams Wednesday are W. L. Dover, Mobil Oil, Corpus Christi; Ben Elliott, Lufkin Foun dry, Lufkin; Jerry Neel, Petro- Ter Chemical, Houston; Ray Shearer, TRW Systems, Houston; and D. E. Wunsch, Collins Radio, Dallas, Thursday teams include Jim McCurry, Alex Gillies and Jack Pool, TRW Systems, Houston, and L. D. Westenburg, Col lins Radio, Dallas; Glen Brown, Forrest and Cotton, Dallas, and A. I. Middlebrook, Collins Radio, Dallas. false or fraudulent representa tions, Brown said. “It includes especially the giv ing of payment for rental by a worthless check or a stop-pay ment check,” Brown added. He pointed out the law provides a penalty of a maximum fine of $200, or not exceeding 30 days in jail, or both. JUSTICE COURTS do not have the power to assess a jail sen tence except for non-payment of fines. “We have to send persons to the district attorney and the case goes to county court,” Brown ex plained. Brown said the law provides that any landlord who shall grant occupancy of any premises under the same conditions, or “who gives in refund any sum, a check that is worthless or shall stop pay ment, shall be guilty in a like manner.” The Dallas justice said the new law “punishes the tenant and landlord who might be unscrupu lous.” His office has not become in volved in many such cases. “I guess people just don’t know the law exists,” he reasoned. BROWN, WHOSE office han dles an estimated 800 eviction suits a year, cited a second law passed in 1967, Article 6236A, which does not change eviction procedures, but does specify the “time length of notice that a tenant shall have.” In other words, Brown said, a tenant paying his rent on a monthly basis, must be allowed a month to seek new quarters if asked to move. “This does not apply in cases where the tenant breaches his rental contract, for example — failure to pay rent,” he continued. Brown noted that the statute was adopted to “clarify the com mon law. There had never been a statutory provision defining ‘reasonable notice’ which previ ously prevailed.” “THERE WAS SOME doubt about what was sufficient,” he added Brown was one of several speakers opening the three-day conference here studying changes and procedures in the law. Ninety persons attended Monday. The school is sponsored by the Engineering Extension Service’s Police Training Division. Sessions will be held in the Memorial Stu dent Center through Wednesday noon. The program is directed by Ira E. Scott, chief of the Police Train ing Division. On Friday visiting engineers are Ben Scholl, City Public Serv ice Board, San Antonio; Mark Forrester, The Orloff Corp., and Dell Davidson, TRW Systems, Houston. THE ENGINEERS will visit four freshmen engineering classes in two hour sessions. Earle pointed out the 720 par ticipating students are second semester freshmen enrolled in Engineering Graphics. “These students have a limited background in mathematics and sciences since this is their first year of college,” he said. All students are enrolled in engineering design graphics. The course is structured to introduce the student to engineering design, problem solving, engineering ap plications and engineering com- municatibns. “Emphasis is placed on the use of the graphical process to orig inate and develop ideas as well as present them in an engineering form,” Earle added. Directors To Dine With Faculty-Staff Texas A&M’s annual Board of Directors - Faculty - Staff Dinner will be held April 25 in Sbisa Hall, announced President Earl Rudder. Rudder appointed a committee, headed by Robert G. Cherry, as sistant to the president, to plan the stag dinner. While listed as a stag event, the A&M president emphasized that women faculty-staff mem bers are invited. “A dinner such as the one planned next month offers us an excellent opportunity to become better acquainted with other members of the A&M family, and particularly with our board of di rectors,” Rudder observed. “We feel it is important to get to gether at least once a year.” Tickets for the dinner will soon be available through department heads, Cherry noted.
