A critical analysis of twenty paintings by Western European artists from the Anthony Denney collection c.1950-1965

Description: This study is concerned with an analysis of twenty paintings by Western European artists from the thirty-five-item segment of the Anthony Denney Collection on permanent loan to the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts. The paintings were considered separately in a two phase visual and verbal analysis accompanied by visual diagrams. Phase one described the primary visual qualities of each painting through examination of the art elements and principles. Phase two was a verbal description of each painting. The purpose of this investigation is to provide an analysis format suitable for abstract and non-objective works of art.

An experiment in open theatre

Description: The purpose of this experiment has been to complete a challenging thesis production in the style and technique of Open Theatre, utilizing imaginative production effects. The purpose was also to provide a valuable experience for those actors and technicians involved, meeting the standards and requirements of educational theatre. The experiment evolved from adapting, designing, directing, and producing a twelve-scene cutting from Megan Terry's Viet Rock and twelve episodes from Jean-Claude van Itallie's The Serpent.

A case study in interpersonal communication training

Description: The purpose of this study was to attempt to observe and quantify some of the effects of an experiential interpersonal communication training program on the individuals involved. The program studied was Speech 360, a laboratory communication course offered at North Texas State University. The design of the study involved three basic student groups -- a.) the fall 1970 Speech 360 students; b.) the Spring 1971 Speech 360 students; and c.) a control group of students similar to those in the course, but who were not involved in the training program.

Identification of glycine as the factor in peptone which induces pleomorphism in Azotobacter vinelandii

Description: The rigid peptidoglycan layer of the cell wall is responsible for maintaining the structural integrity of bacteria. Antibiotics such as penicillin exert their anti-bacterial effect by inhibiting synthesis of peptidoglycan, and enzymes such as lysozyme destroy cell integrity by hydrolyzing specific bonds in the interios of this macromolecule. the purpose of this investigation was to study the nature of peptone-induced pleomorphism of Azotobacter.

Linkage relationships of greenbug resistance in barley, Hordeum vulgare L.

Description: The linkage relationship and arm location of the gene for greenbug resistance in the variety Will was determined by using primary trisonomics and tertiary trisomic homozygous translocations. The gene for greenbug resistance was found to be on linkage group 1 by using primary trisonomics.

High temperature vapor pressure and the critical point of potassium

Description: The vapor pressure was determined from 1600 deg F up to the critical point. The equation Ln P = A + B/T + C Ln T was found to fit the data well, a fourth term D/T/sup 2/ further improved the fit. A novel design was employed in measuring the vapor pressure, which provides a direct determination of the critical pressure, because at all tip temperatures higher than the critical temperature the same breakoff pressure'' is observed. This breakoff'' pressure'', which is produced when the liquid level reaches the critical temperature in its travel along the bore of the tube, is the critical pressure.

Experimental determination of the critical point and high-temperature saturated phase densities of rubidium

Description: A cylindrical capsule partially filled with rubidium metal was hung from transverse knife edges in the plane normal to the axis of the capsule at its center. The equilibrium rest angle of the capsule was measured at various temperatures until it reached the horizontal position, at which the rubidium inside the capsule was in one phase. The rest angle at a given temperature is a function of the saturated vapor and liquid densities, and is solved simultaneously with the rest angle of another capsule containing a different mass of rubidium metal, at, or interpolated to, the same temperature. The saturated phase densities are obtained, by extrapolation, up to the critical point. The critical temperature obtained was 333l plus or minus 10 deg F and the critical density 0.347 g/cm/sup 3/ plus or minus 0.5%;. Combined with the critical pressure of 1944 psia obtained previously, the critical compressibility factor was calculated as 0.189 plus or minus 0.001. (auth)
