100 pages, well illustrated, pictorial wrappers, ex-library with usual library markings, considerable shelf-wear, text very good. From the preface: Since emphasis has been placed upon the personality development of the child rather than upon the finished product, there have been varying opinions as to the best methods by which art should be taught; so it is little wonder that the classroom teacher is at times somewhat confused. For average children of elementary school level, there is no art medium more economical or readily available, or delightful and satisfying to the child, or easier to manipulate than the colored crayon. ; Ex-Library

The book is filled with facts about America's extensive maritime supply operations in World War II, yet the focus of the story remains on the men who served and their often heroic actions. A merchant seaman himself, the author spent the war on merchant ships and he frequently draws on his own experiences to describe the action at sea. He also includes the personal stories of other seamen. All theaters of operation using U. S. Merchant ships are covered, a fact that makes this book unique."

San Francisco Jossey-Bass Publishing, 1973 0875891624 / 9780875891620 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
276 pages, cloth, dj, very good. From the publisher: The Jossey-Bass Series In Higher Education. More than any other issue in higher education, tenure, with its guarantee of life-time contracts, urgently needs reevaluation. Tenure is being attacked; many critics say it should be abolished altogether. This new book reveals that there is much truth in the criticism. It also reaffirms that tenure is still of major importance to higher education -with many changes needed. Faculty Tenure is the full report and recommendations of the Commission on Academic Tenure in Higher Education. The book (1) examines the operation of the tenure system, (2) evaluates criticism of tenure, (3) considers alternatives to tenure, and (4) makes detailed recommendations for improvement and modification.
