    Interesting Issues Relating to the Succession inLien of the Heirs Disinherited by the de cujusbefore the Death of the de cujus and theSuccession in Lien of the Heirs Excluded fromthe Succession after the Death of the de cujus
    (Chulalongkorn University Printing House, 2008) ;
    University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. Journal Editorial Office
    When a person dies, his estate devolves on the heirs by statutory rights, called çstatutoryheirsé, or on the heirs who are entitled by will, called çlegateesé, as the case may be. Butif such heirs behave in an unworthy way vis-a$-vis the de cujus, and are still entitled tothe succession, it would appear to be unjust. Hence, the stipulations of the law thatsuch heirs shall be disinherited ipso jure on account of their unworthy behaviorsvis-a$-vis the de cujus, by being excluded from the succession under two circumstances,i.e. exclusion from the succession for having diverted or concealed the property or forunworthy behaviors vis-a$-vis the de cujus. The exclusion from the succession could occurboth before and after the death of the de cujus. If the exclusion from the successionoccurs before the death of the de cujus, there are provisions of the law that entitle thesuccession in lien of such heirs by the çdescendenté of the excluded heirs. But if theexclusion from the succession occurs after the death of the de cujus, the çdescendentéof the excluded heirs could also succeed by their right of succession in lien of theexcluded heirs. In the view of the author, there could be a problem of interpretation ofthe law if it is asserted that the çdescendenté of the excluded heirs could succeed bytheir right of succession in lien of the excluded heirs.

    Chemical Composition and Physico-ChemicalProperties of Chinese Water Chestnut(Eleocharisdulcis Trin.) Flour
    (Chulalongkorn University Printing House, 2008) ;
    University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. Journal Editorial Office
    Chinese water chestnut (Eleocharis dulcis Trin.) is one of the most popular ingredientsof various Asian cuisines. It is traditionally used as peeled corms. However, the flourprepared from the corms also finds its applications in some Chinese dishes. The objectiveof this study was to investigate the chemical compositions and some physicochemicalproperties of Chinese water chestnut flour. The flour samples of different particle sizes(60-, 80- and 100-mesh) were investigated for their microscopic structure, pH, color(CIE L* a* and b*), swelling power and water solubility. The thermodynamic properties ofthe flour samples were monitored using a Differential Scanning Calorimeter. The flour pastingbehavior was investigated using a Rapid Visco Analyzer (RVA) and, finally, the productionyield of the flour was calculated. It was found that Chinese water chestnut flour sampleswere high in amylose, especially the 100-mesh sample (32.75% amylose). The ScanningElectron Microscopy (SEM) showed that the flour sample with larger particle size wasmore likely to attach and form clusters when compared to that of smaller particle size.The pH values of Chinese water chestnut flour samples were in the range of 5.62-5.66.Chinese water chestnut flour was light yellow while the flour with larger particle size hadlower L* value than that with smaller particle size. Swelling power and water solubility of theflour samples increased with increasing temperature. Moreover, the flour sample with higherstarch content required more energy for gelatinization than that with lower starch content.The 60-mesh flour produced a gel with higher stability upon cooling than the 80- and 100-mesh samples, respectively. The production yield of Chinese water chestnut flour was65.41% on a dry weight basis.

    Application of the Culture of Thai Literary Art: A Teaching Strategy for Creative Writing
    (Chulalongkorn University Printing House, 2008) ;
    University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. Journal Editorial Office
    This paper aims to demonstrate the use of traditional poetry in teaching creative writing.To attract new generation studentsû interest in the beauty of poetic language, as well as toenable them to write creatively, teachers may make use of some traditional forms of poetryfrom Thai literary art and apply them to todayûs social context. The use of Phamee(a poetic riddle) and Klon Nirat (a traveling poem) as teaching media are the strategiesthat make the convention of poetic writing relevant to contemporary contents.

    An Input-Output Table of the Cluster of Provincesin the Mid-South of Thailand
    (Chulalongkorn University Printing House, 2008) ;
    University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. Journal Editorial Office
    In this research, I/O tables for a cluster of provinces in Thailandûs mid-south have beencomposed to analyze the economy for the five provinces of Satun, Phattalung, Trang,Nakornsrithamarat and Songkhla. The tables can be classified into two ways, namely anI/O table of 58 input activities for provinces, and of 16 input activities for the cluster ofprovinces. These tables can be used to analyze the structure of the input within theseprovinces, import items and distribution to other provinces, including the industrialpotential of each province. The I/O tables show the structure of output uses that determinessources, value and flow of goods produced in one province that become an input andgoods consumed in the other provinces. Ultimately, analysis can be made of the industrialpotential in the cluster of provinces in Thailandûs mid-south. Thus the tables can show theamount of output dependency and trade relationships between the provinces. From theresearch, it was concluded that the economic viability of the five clustered provinceswould be enhanced if they co-operate more closely on becoming self-sufficient, and reducetheir dependency on imports.

    A Comparative Study of English Essay Writing Strategies and Difficulties as Perceived by English Major Students: A Case Study of Student in the School of Humanities, the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce
    (Chulalongkorn University Printing House, 2008) ;
    University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. Journal Editorial Office
    This article presents the results of a comparative study of English essay writing strategiesused and difficulties encountered by 272 fourth-year English major students from differentbackgrounds in both high and low English proficiency groups, at the School ofHumanities, the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce. A questionnaire was usedto collect data. Percentage, Means, Standard Deviation and t-test were used for dataanalysis. The major findings are that between the high and low proficiency groups,significant differences at the 0.05 level occurred in all steps of the writing processwhen comparing English essay writing strategies used and difficulties encounteredin both organizing and writing in English. The same was true when comparing difficultiesencountered by students with different backgrounds; there were significant differencesat the 0.05 level in both organizing and writing essays in English. Gender had no effecton difficulties encountered.
