The Purpose: The purpose of this study is to develop an original validated Lickert-type attitudinal survey instrument and administer it to selected samples of teachers and students in the Mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon to determine their attitude toward the "purposes," "functions," and "responsibilities" of student councils and place these results...
The purpose of this exploratory study was to develop hypotheses
about the relationships between nurturance in fathers to their small
children and independent variables thought to be associated with
fathers' nurturance. A second purpose was to attempt to clarify
the father role in contemporary American society.
The literature of child...
The primary problem of this study was to evaluate the post-high
school plans component of a high school counseling program. The
intent was to determine the effectiveness of the program component in
relation to the purpose it was designed to serve: providing information
and guidance for high school students who...
Recent emphasis on range improvement of sagebrush-bunch-grass
types in Oregon has underscored the need for better understanding
of their importance to deer winter range management. The
objectives of this study were to evaluate the impact of various sagebrush
control practices on the composition, production, and utilization
of deer forage plants...
The main objective of this investigation was to evaluate relationships
between the production and utilization of forage and deer
browsing of hand-planted Douglas-fir seedlings. A secondary purpose
was to study some effects of selected physical and biological
site factors on the survival and growth of fir seedlings.
Field work was...
The influence of irregular terrain on the evolution of the daytime
planetary boundary layer (PBL) and meso-β scale dry circulations is
studied using two three-dimensional hydrostatic σ-coordinate models
with different approaches for the PBL parameterizations; the 4-layer
model uses the mixed-layer (bulk-layer) approach, while the 7-layer
model adopts the eddy-diffusivity...
As the management of range lands is intensified or as improvement
activity is increased, a critical need is seen to refine the
understanding of the ecology of these lands. If soil surveys on range
lands are to be meaningful and useful, the relationship between the
fundamental ecological units and the...
