The Nocturnes of Chopin

Description: John Field (1782-1837), an Irishman, was the first composer to use the French term "nocturne," and was the inventor of the nocturne for piano. It can be seen with a glance at the scores that the orchestral notturni by the eighteenth century composers were very different than what is generally thought of today as a nocturne. Field introduced the idea of the nocturne that has remained much the same since. Frederic Chopin enlarged and improved the genre invented by Field, but it was Field's originality that brought this type of piece to piano literature. Indeed, John Field is hardly remembered today except as the inventor of the nocturne for the piano and for his influence on Chopin's Nocturnes. For that alone musicians will remain indebted to him.

Piano Sonatas Six, Seven and Eight of Prokofiev

Description: The Sixth, Seventh, and E Piano Sonatas of Prokofiev illustrate the composer's more mature style. In these works there is a definite return to the classic forms and contrapuntal devices which have been called Neo-classicism. Prokofiev, himself, has said that form is one of the basic elements of his style. It is the purpose of this thesis to discover the' formal organization and make a comparison of these sonatas with the works of Beethoven and his contemporaries.

A Comparative Study of Three Sonatas for Solo Brass Instruments and Piano by Paul Hindemith

Description: In the years during the writing of The Craft of Musical Composition, and for the next few years afterwards, Hindemith was engaged in writing a solo sonata for each of the instruments of the orchestra. Muser states that this series of sonatas continues a definite policy of providing music for people who want to play music, and not merely to listen to it. The three sonatas for solo brass instruments and piano were written during this period. The sonatas, written for trumpet, horn, and trombone, were written in the following order: Sonata for Trumpet and Piano—1939; Sonata for Horn and Piano—1939; Sonata for Trombone and Piano—1941. These sonatas, being written rather closely together, should have certain stylistic characteristics in common, and there should also be certain features peculiar to each sonata. To study these sonatas and compare them with each other structurally and stylistically is the purpose of this work.

An Analysis of Maurice Ravel's Technique of Orchestration

Description: It is interesting to note that several of Ravel's compositions for the piano were successful only after he had orchestrated them. Ravel, a pianist, had a natural gift for orchestration, and when writing for the piano he seems to have projected his thoughts to the orchestra; thus some of his works are more successful' for the orchestra than for the piano. Since he orchestrated several of his own piano compositions, these present an excellent opportunity for a study of his orchestrations.

A Suggested System of Forms for Controlling the Flow of Materials and Equipment to and from the Producing Areas of a Petroleum Company

Description: A rather unique situation presents itself in the control off materials in the petroleum industry because of great areas to cover, diversified activities within those areas, and a multiplicity of operating units being served from the depot of supplies. It is the purpose of this paper to look into the particular problems of keeping an adequate system of stores records in the oil business. The control of materials and stores distributed from the field operating unit is of necessity achieved through the use or various forms or records written as evidence of transactions among the production units being served. The prime motive of using the forms is to facilitate the movement of goods to their destination within the unit served and to provide an accurate record of the materials received, stored, and distributed.

Research in Photosynthesis

Description: The determination of the specific radioactivities of the chlorophylls and carotenoids of algae after photosynthesis with C/sup 14/O/sub 2/ is a formidable task, due to the extreme lability of these compounds. The whole success of the method depends on adequate chromatographic separations of the pigments from the colorless contaminants which are closely associated with them, and yet the time involved for such separations is sufficient for marked decomposition of the pigments to occur. It is suggested that the techniques of column chromatography, followed by centrifugallyaccelerated paper chromatography of the spectroscopically pure pigments, may resolve this problem. In an investigation of the action of cyanide on photosynthesis, green algae have been treated with radioactive cyanide. A multitude of products have been found to be formed in very short exposure times. One of these was identified with a material formed when algae are given radioactive CO/sub 2/ and nonradioactive KCN. This material has been identified as the cyanide addition product of ribulose-1,5- diphosphate. Upon hydrolysis it gives a branched-chain sugar acid (or mixture of isomers) closely related to hamamelonic acid. Perhaps the most important aspect of this work is the demonstration of the chemlcal role of cyanide. (auth)

Production of Neutral Photopions as a Function of Atomic Weight

Description: Thesis discussing the relative yield of neutral pions from elements in a reaction "as a function of the quantum-limit energy (the maximum energy of the quanta in the bremsstrahlung beam) of the Berkeley synchrotron." Interpretation of the results leads to values for the mean free path for absorption of the neutral pions in nuclear matter.

A Study of Denton's Shopping Goods Trade Losses to Dallas and Fort Worth

Description: "The primary objective of this study was to determine the proportion of shopping goods trade Denton merchants are losing to other cities. A secondary objective was to find reasons for the loss of trade. Since Denton is within the trade orbit of Dallas and Fort Worth, special emphasis was placed on finding the percentage of trade going to these two cities...The major finding of this study is the indication that approximately 81 percent of Denton's retail shopping goods trade is actually done in Denton.

A Study and Evaluation of Certain Practices of the Financial Administration of Industrial Arts Departments in Class A High Schools of Texas

Description: This is a study and evaluation of certain practices in the financial administration of industrial arts programs operating in accredited four-year class "A" high schools in Texas. The study seeks to answer the following questions: 1. Are industrial arts teachers properly prepared to administer the financial transactions involved in an industrial arts program? 2. Is there a need for establishing standard practices and principles to be used in administering industrial arts finance? 3. Is there a danger of criticism of the industrial arts departments and the teachers, because of inefficiency in the administration of shop finance? 4. Are practices now in use basically sound? 5. Are adequate records being kept? 7. What steps should be taken to eliminate the objectional practices now in use and to initiate the more desirable ones?
