The Consideration of Visual Aspects of Art in Motion Picture Awards

Description: The writer, who, as an art student, has a special interest in the visual qualities of motion picture art, has undertaken to investigate the extent to which the visual aspect of art was outstanding in motion pictures receiving awards during the years 1951 through 1954. As a result of this investigation he hopes to reach some valid conclusions concerning the chronological and geographical distribution of visually excellent pictures during the period and to consider the consequences of those trends which can be identified.

The Nature of Individual Differences and Ways of Taking Care of Them, With Emphasis Upon Arithmetic in the Higher Grades at the Elementary Level

Description: The over-all purpose of this study is to determine the ways in which children differ from one another as related to the instructional program in the school, to point out ways of taking care of individual differences in the learning situations in the classroom, and to apply these principles to the teaching and learning of arithmetic in the higher grades at the elementary level.

Orthogonal Functions

Description: In this study the idea of orthogonality of two lines will be generalized to the idea of orthogonality of two functions. In particular, the orthogonality of two lines may be treated from the standpoint of the orthogonality of two vectors in two-dimensional space.

Experimental Determination of the Scattering Cross-section of Ogives and Prolate Spheroids at Microwave Frequencies

Description: Because of the great difficulty of obtaining exact numerical values of cross-section, and because of the inherent uncertainties in interpreting and evaluating the approximate methods, accurate experimental cross-section data would be extremely useful to the radar engineer. It was with this purpose in mind that the present long-range research program in microwave scattering was undertaken. Of immediate interest were the scattering properties of the prolate spheroid, the ogive (formed by rotating the minor segment of a circle around the chord), and, for comparison, the long cylinder.

An Investigation of Algae and Common Tastes and Odors in Fresh Water

Description: The purpose of this investigation was to isolate and grow algae common to the southwest in unialgal culture; to either sustain or grow one of the principal bloom-causing organisms, with emphasis on Microcystis aeruginosa; to isolate and culture actinomycetes from the same waters from which the algae were obtained; and to inoculate these algae with actinomycetes and determine their effects through development and deterioration.

An Analysis of the Progress of Unions in Organizing Professional Engineers

Description: The problems of this research report were threefold: 1. To trace the history of the unionization of engineers from its inception to the present time. 2. To present the arguments of those individuals and groups who practice and favor engineering unionization, and to set fort the counter-arguments of those individuals and groups who reject unionization for engineers. 3. To summarize the facts and opinions discovered and, in view of these findings, to draw conclusions on the merits and the trend of engineering unionization.

A Study of the Role of Complement in the Protection of Akr Mice Against Transplanted Lymphoid Leukemia

Description: It seemed desirable to investigate further the possible role of complement and its components in the protective action of serum against transplanted neoplasms. It is the purpose of this thesis to present data which suggest that the C'4 component plays an active part in this process though the mechanism is not disclosed.

Representation of the Social Class Structure in the Fiction of Ernest Hemingway

Description: Hemingway has given us pictures of individual members of society in the United States, in Africa and in Europe from the nineteen-twenties to the present time. In order to present Hemingway's characters as a study in social structure, the following classes will be considered: primitives, peasants, middle class, upper class, aristocrats.

Barbituric Acids. VIII. 5-substituted-5-(1-pyrrolidyl)barbituric Acids

Description: The purpose of this investigation then was the preparation of a series of 5-substituted-5-(1-pyrrolidyl)barbituric acids in which R would consist of alkyl groups ranging in size from methyl to amyl, and other groups such as phenyl and benzyl. These compounds are to be tested elsewhere for hypnotic and anticonvulsant activity.

Walt Whitman and the Theatre

Description: This study attempts to establish the fact that Whitman was a frequent attendant at the legitimate theatre and that throughout his life he had a vital concern for it. The nature and scope of Whitman's interest in the legitimate theatre has been examined in detail to show by specific reference to his works the probable effect of his theatrical interest.

What Relationship Exists Between the Populations of Church Congregations and Their Maximum Efficiency?

Description: The present study was calculated to determine whether or not a congregation with a good percentage increase in membership from a specific date in 1956 to a corresponding date in 1957 would also experience any percentage increase in attendance of members and visitors at the Sunday morning worship services. Likewise, would such a congregation have a large percentage of its assembly in attendance at its Bible classes and at its midweek services?
