Electricity in Rural Areas of North Texas
"This study shows three things: (1) a precedent for the expenditure of public funds to teach electricity in our public high schools has already been established by the school system in the larger school systems of Texas, (2) the rural families living on electrified farms in the North Texas area want instruction of this type given to the boys and girls in their communities, and (3) both the rural people and the professional people of the North Texas area believe that instruction dealing with the use of electricity and electrical equipment had spread until by 1935 more than twenty-one million homes, about eighty percent of the total in America at that time, were electrified, only eleven American farms out of every 100 had central-station electricity. More than five million American farms lacked electric service. "--leaf 50. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc699536/

To Determine If the Industrial Arts Teachers of Texas Need Or Want State-Wide Industrial Arts Supervision
Industrial Arts today is included in a majority of the large high school curricula, and most school administrators do not consider the school program well rounded unless such work is offered. However, the Industrial Arts teachers of Texas do not have the advantage of a supervisor in their field of work. Each school is an entity in itself. There is no concerted state-wide program, no link between widely diversified needs and situations, no one to advise the young teacher beginning his work, and no one to aid the more experienced teachers in different situations. The State Department of Education recommends a uniform course of study, but each teacher is free to use his own interpretation of what he should teach and what he should not teach. Educators, mindful of the beneficial results of supervision in other fields, have asked for a State Supervision of Industrial Arts, and provision has been made in the next school budget for such an official if the Legislature approves. 1 The purpose of this investigation is to determine, if possible, whether a supervisory program is needed or wanted by the Industrial Arts teachers of Texas. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc699708/

"This study was conducted to find the extent to which girls are involved in industrial arts classes and related activities in Texas public schools, the factors which limit their enrollment, and teachers' opinions concerning industrial arts experiences most beneficial for girls. Data were obtained from bulletins, books, magazines, related studies, and from information forms completed by 123 industrial arts teachers....Among the more important findings were: 1. Girls tend to enroll in certain areas of industrial arts with little or no participation in other areas. 2. A large majority of the respondents indicated they would be receptive to teaching industrial arts to girls. 3. The respondents indicated industrial arts would be of great value to girls. 4. The optimum number of industrial arts credits for girls is one or two. 5. Girls should be taught in mixed classes. 6. The realization of the states objectives of industrial arts is of equal value to boys and girls. 7. Many girls have negative feelings toward becoming involved in industrial arts. 8. Exchange units and unified arts programs are of value to girls and boys." --p. 2 digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc663832/
The Impact of Expanding Technical Knowledge on the Beginning Industrial Arts Teacher
This study measures technical preparation and job demands among North Texas State University industrial arts graduates teaching in high schools.

A Comparative Study of Three Epoxy Resins in the Industrial Arts Laboratory
This study was made to determine the advantages of the use of epoxy resins in the industrial arts laboratory. The purpose of this study was to determine the feasibility of using epoxy resins as a wood adhesive. Data was gathered from texts, periodicals, and unpublished data. Tests were conducted using epoxy samples acquired from three epoxy manufacturers on three different woods and joints. The study discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using epoxy resins as a wood adhesive and the material and equipment necessary for the use of epoxy resins. Strength tests were performed on the joints adhered with epoxy and on joints adhered with white glue. A hand operated high tensile strength machine was used to conduct the tests. Epoxy Resins were found, in most cases, to give a more durable bond than white glue. Further studies should be made using epoxy resins as adhesives for metal, glass, plastic, and other materials used in the industrial arts laboratory. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc663349/
