The Colonial Lawyer is published at the Mar-
shall-Wythe School of Law of the College of
William and Mary. The opinions expressed are
those of the writers and do not necessarily
reflect the position of the school.
Welcome to The Colonial Lawyer. For those readers
meeting it for the first time, perhaps a note of introduc-
tion is in order. First as a newspaper, and since 1969 as
a magazine, the Lawyer has served Marshall-Wythe as a
forum for student thought on the law school and the
law. For the past year the Lawyer has been, as it were,
on vacation. Now it is back.
Diversity is the objective of the Lawyer, and the con-
tents of this issue exemplify that goal. Two articles follow
an environmental vein. The first, a guest article by Mr.
Denis Brion, traces the development of the 1972 Federal
Water Pollution Control Act Amendments. Mr. Brion,
who this year joined the faculty of Marshall-Wythe, is the
present president of the Virginia State Water Control
Board, a body that has been unusually visible to the
public eye this year because of its responsibility to
investigate first the Kepone scandal and later the Great
Chesapeake Bay Oil spill.

Also on the environmental side, John L. Carver, the
Secretary-Treasurer of The Environmental Law Group at
Marshall-Wythe and the editor-in-chief of that organiza-
tion's publication The Environmental Practice News,
examines the possibility of Thermal Efficiency Stan-
dards For Buildings.
Three articles in this issue have in common a concern
for the problems that arise when law attempts to deal
with morality. Ingrid Hillinger considers the problems of
The Duty to Rescue, while R. Gregory Barton takes a
fresh look at The Morality of Suicide. Mark Horos-
chak, in his turn, contributes a study on Positive
Eugenics and the Law.
On a practical note, Kathleen Nixon's article: Semi-
Student Bargaining delves into the timely issue of the
rights of graduate teaching assistants and medical in-
terns and residents to bargain collectively for higher pay.
Finally, on the lighter side. Jane Bedno finds poetry
in the justice that defines women's place under the
We think you will find it interesting.
With this issue, The Colonial Lawyer begins a new
chapter in its history. While outwardly little changed
from past issues, internally the Lawyer has undergone a
