A Study of Color Preferences of the Children in the Demonstration School of the North Texas State Teachers College

Description: This study was made in the Demonstration School of the North Texas State Teacher's College, using the children of Grades I to V inclusive as subjects of the investigation. The problem was taken to try to discover if children of a certain age group have definite color preferences and other related questions such as if these preferences remain constant, if they are influenced by other factors such as intelligence, sex, or grade, and if there is consistency noticeable in the preferences of a group at any given grade level. It is also the aim of this study to see how the children of the Demonstration School compare with other groups that have been tested, to suggest possible reasons for differences, and to set forth a procedure that could be followed in order to secure more significant results than those which have been obtained by other investigators.

A Survey of the Green Jacket Club of the North Texas State Teachers College and its Contributions to the Organization of Similar Clubs in the Secondary Schools in Texas

Description: The purpose of this study is to discover and report the history of the Green Jacket Club of the North Texas State Teachers College from its origin to the present time, to find out how many similar clubs have been organized by Green Jacket members in the secondary schools of Texas, and to show how the club is organized compared with the original Green Jacket Club. The following conclusions were made: 1. The members of the Green Jacket Club of the North Texas State Teachers College were a representative group of girls, for the eighty-two studied had majored or minored in sixteen of the nineteen major departments offered by the college. 2. The Green Jacket members surveyed were a professional and progressive group of girls, since exactly fifty per cent have continued their education by doing graduate work. 3. The members of the Green Jacket Club have expressed their loyalty to North Texas State Teachers College by their return to the Teachers College campus to do their graduate work. 4. More than half of the Green Jackets surveyed were still in the teaching profession, which indicates their success in this line of endeavor. 5. Membership in forty-six different clubs indicated that Green Jackets make good club women. 6. Further evidence of the professional spirit of the Green Jackets was shown by their large membership in the Texas State Teachers Association, Parent-Teacher Associations, and National Education Associations. 7. The belief that Green Jacket members were largely leaders was verified by the fact that twenty-six of the eighty-two Green Jackets studied had sponsored sixty-three clubs. 8. The influence of the Green Jacket Club has been felt not only on the campus of North Texas State Teachers College but in at least twenty-four towns and cities in Texas. 9. These twenty-four clubs were ...

Dreams as a Source of Imagery

Description: Dreams can be defined as a series of thoughts, images, or emotions that occur during sleep. The impression of strangeness, which is certainly a characteristic of dreaming, comes from three primary performances: (1) a loosened temporal and spacial world, (2) short attentional controls and (3) fewer critical evaluations. In dreams, time and matter are not bound by physical properties, and scenes may change with remarkable rapidity or awesome slowness. One out of three people can recall dreams upon awakening. During a night's sleep there are usually three separate dream periods per night, which contain at least two dream stories within each period.

An Investigation of the Visual Potentials of Combining Plastic Materials with Paper or Fabric or Both

Description: In this creative project, I chose to explore the visual potentials of combining plastic materials with paper or fabric or both in such a way as to produce both visually strong and personally meaningful works. During the completion of the ten pieces, a written journal was kept in order to maintain a record of the progress and outcome of this investigation. In addition, data was illustrated by photographic slides. One piece was photographed at various stages of development, and all of the pieces were photographed at completion. The following analysis of the finished work was made from this information.

PILOT for the Apple II Microcomputer

Description: PILOT (Programmed Inquiry, Learning or Teaching) is a simple, conversational language developed in 1969 by John A. Starkweather at the University of California Medical Center in San Francisco. Originally designed for computer assisted instructional needs, PILOT also has been effectively used as an introductory computer language. The PILOT system developed for the Apple II microcomputer consists of two programs, PILOT EDITOR and PILOT DRIVER, which are written in Applesoft and which use the Apple II disk operating system. The PILOT system was designed to facilitate easy authoring and execution of programs written in an extended version of the PILOT language. Due to the memory requirements of the programs and the Apple II disk operating system, the PILOT system described here should be executed on a machine with at least 32k bytes of random access memory.

Notes on the SWTPC MP-N Calculator Interface and the Calc-1 Program

Description: This interface was bought to perform floating-point arithmetic and for its function capabilities such as SIN, COS, and e^x. My application required an integer truncation function that is not performed by this calculator, so i wrote a small assembly language subroutine to do it. A potentially irritating problem is that the calculator chip does not automatically convert to scientific notation if the numbers become too big to display in floating point. The control program must keep track of the display mode.

Printmaking Experimentations: A Personal Approach

Description: Experimentations with overlays of color within my imagery have developed an interest in surface embellishment resulting from the juxtaposition of overlapping hues, integration of collage, and extended use of mixed-media as a printed visual statement. Past printmaking experiences include exploration of a variety of procedures including lithography, intaglio, and serigraphy. Prints have been executed in edition and monoprints, singular techniques and in combination. Individual techniques were expanded through the use of collage and linear application of graphite.

Altering the Muzak Situation

Description: The project involved producing a group (16) of audio-visual installations that successfully displayed and exposed various Muzak situations. The following questions, relating to individual pieces, were of concern: 1. What is the basic intent of each installation or piece? 2. Does the piece communicate the intent of the artist? 3. Which installations or pieces will adapt to any space? 4. What visual documentation is necessary to preserve the idea?

Spontaneous Imagery Within Shaped Formats

Description: The primary concerns and problems which were addressed in this project were: 1. were the shaped formats more of less effective when derived directly from maps and/or photographic panoramas as opposed to deriving them from my own memory and imagination? 2.Was the negative space in which the intaglio prints float, more or less effective than the paintings and drawings which have no bordering negative space? 3. What differences exist in the spontaneous imagery when putting down the initial marks, with my eyes closed, as opposed to when my eyes were open. 4. Did values painted, drawn, or printed over the spontaneous imagery expand the spacial implications and enhance the overall coordination? 5. What problems arose in construction of the shaped formats, how they were solved, and what was the best way to finish the edges for presentation?

FORTRAN Graphics Library

Description: The objective of this work is to help the faculty, staffs and students of NTSU to use the CalComp plotting facility very easily. Therefore, this work is written in such a step by step and self-explanatory way to help the reader to understand and grasp the essential technique of the computer plotting. Each subroutine illustrated in this work has been run and checked by our NTSU computer-CalComp plotting facility; the results of sample programs and illustrated graphs are believed to be very useful to understand each individual subroutine. Basically, software packages are stored in the magnetic disk of the IBM 360 computer as the standard graphic subroutines. These subroutines were written in FORTRAN IV. The user can write the driving program to call these subroutines and also inputs the desire data to the computer for computation. The results of computation will be outputed and stored in the magnetic tape.

VISOR (Variable Interval Schedule Of Reinforcement) System Documentation

Description: This program will be used in operant behavior research to monitor and record responses and trigger and record reinforcements on a variable reinforcement (VI) schedule. The original application of this program will be the servicing of several rat cages simultaneously. The response will be the pressing of a metal bar in the cage, the reinforcement will be the triggering of a feeding mechanism which disperses a food pellet into the cage. The subsequent applications of this program are not limited, in that the actual response and reinforcement devices and the subject type are all treated indifferently by the program.
