Learning by experience Student testifies on field trip SAN ANTONIO (AP) — A field trip to the Bexar County Courthouse turned into a trip to the witness stand for a high school senior who was called to testify in a criminal case. Melissa McElroy, an 18-year-old senior at Lack- land High School, was with her government class watching a trial when she recognized a woman in court and took the witness stand to challenge her credibility. "It was really weird," McElroy said after testify ing Wednesday. The 26 members of her class were attending a jury trial before 290th District Judge Sharon Mac- Rae in which a man is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. The students picked the trial at random. McElroy, who is not involved in the case, recog nized the alleged victim's mother as someone she had worked with at a fast-food restaurant earlier this year, teacher David Merrell said. When the mother testified she had not worked since 1985, it struck the student as wrong. And when the woman testified she had not seen a key witness for quite some time, McElroy said the key witness had worked with the mother at the fast- food restaurant. "Melissa was angry about it, and she said, 'What should I do?' " Merrell said. "I told her it was a moral dilemma for her and she'd have to decide what to do. I think she was just compelled to do what was right." Defense attorney Emil Holiner was told during a break in testimony that the student wanted to testify. "It's the most bizarre thing I've ever seen," he said. "I don't know how to convey the surprise of it all. This is a real civics lesson for the class, and one they'll never forget." After McElroy's testimony, the class had just enough time to get to their bus and return to school. Merrell's government class takes a field trip to the county courthouse every year. "I let the students pick which case to go see and they always want to go to criminal cases or some thing exciting," he said. College of Engineering faces budget cuts, loss of accreditation Continued from page 1 are concerned about the accredi tation review. "I think we should be alarm ed," said Dr. Raymond Flumer- felt, head of the chemical engi neering department. "There are definitely some needs. If they are not met, it may result in some negatives down the way." An example of one of the col lege's outdated labs is an electri cal machinery lab in the electrical engineering department. A tea ching assistant in that lab esti mates that the equipment has not been updated in more than 10 years. "It's hard for students to work in this lab," said Harinderbal Singh. "It's frustrating for them because they do not get good re sults in the lab because the read ings are haphazard." A microprocessors lab and a digital design lab in the electrical engineering department are other examples of shoddy equip ment in many labs, he said. Flumerfelt said it is just these types of problems that need to be addressed now. "We're putting up a red flag that maybe we're starting to lose some ground," he said. "We haven't had those problems in the past, and we don't want to have them now. We want to make sure we're in good shape." ABET, an affiliation of several engineering societies, will exam ine the strength of the faculty, arrangement of curriculum, lab equipment, library facilities, ad missions policies and support areas like math and science. The College of Engineering was last accredited in 1986 for the maximum six-year time pe riod. If ABET finds some areas of the college lacking next year, it can put them on probation for three years to allow for im provement. Dr. John Weese, head of the engineering technology depart ment and a former ABET com mission member, said about 20 percent of the universities who get into trouble with accredita tion have lab deficiencies. Hall said some departmental labs, like mechanical, petroleum and aerospace, are better off than electrical and others be cause they recently received new buildings. Flumerfelt and Weese believe that the labs are a symptom of the problems associated with de clining state funds for universi ties. The chemical engineering de partment has built, maintained and upgraded its labs solely from industry donations, Flu merfelt said. But, obviously, it still is not enough. "We're an outstanding school, but we're losing some ground because of no funding from the University or state," he said. "We find ourselves scrambling for funds." Weese said it is fortunate that A&M has received so much sup- g ort from industry and alumni, ut the college has to rely too much on it. "Virtually everything you get has to be from industry, espe cially for laboratory im provement," Weese said. "State support for us has been very small the last few years." Hall said he befieves there is a limit to how much industry will give A&M and the college proba bly has reached it. "They (industries) don't mind donating equipment, but they think the University could at least maintain it," he said. Both men said the enormous cost of educating engineering students, about $800 per engi neering student per class, has put a large burden on depart ments to recruit donations. University President William H. Mobley, however, said he agrees the state should bear a greater burden in the College of Engineering but said that these are tough budget times. "We enjoy good support from industry, and we've invested heavily in engineering the last few years, but staying abreast in engineering is an expensive un dertaking," Mobley said. "We're operating at 1985 levels, in real dollars, with considerable growth. Everyone is operating under tight levels." Mobley said his office will wait for the Legislature to pass a bud get before making any decisions. He said if A&M's budget gets cut, he will have to make some tough decisions about the Col lege of Engineering and every other A&M college. Engineering administrators, however, have not resigned the college to losing its accreditation. "A school like A&M has every opportunity to maintain its ac creditation, and we will do ev erything we can to assure that," Weese said. Is Your Child Missing Something?

Law allows testimony concerning past violence AUSTIN (AP) — Gov. Ann Richards signed into law a bill to allow a murder or manslaughter defendant to submit testimony about family violence inflicted in the past by the murder victim. Currently, testimony about "battered wife syndrome" is not admitted in some cases, accord ing to lawmakers. The measure by Sen. Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-Dallas, would permit the defendant to offer relevant evidence about be ing a victim of family violence, and expert testimony on the situ ation. Richards signed the measure Thursday. LOUPOT’S PAYS CASH FOR USED BOOKS! Redmond Terrace Northgate Southgate next to Academy across from Post Office on Jersey Street
