  • The pelleting of clovers and fertiliser : the effects of the localized placement of fertiliser at seeding (pelleting) on germination, morphology and herbage yield of Trifolium species : a thesis presented in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Agricultural Science to the University of New Zealand [Massey Agricultural College]

    Smith, C. A (1951)

    Masters thesis
    Massey University

    The pelleting of clover seed and fertiliser may be valuable as a method of introducing the essential clovers into the unploughable hill country. The hill land of New Zealand is agriculturally important because of the large area involved, the animals and animal products produced and its value as a souce of direct and indirect employment. The hill country indirectly influences the valuable lowlands. There are two aspects: firstly, the supply of store stock for fattening and breeding (which results in a continuous transfer of minerals as animal skeletons); and secondly the importance of the hill catchment areas in the prevention of flood discharges, and the silting of rivrs, flats and resevoirs lower down.

  • The ultra-violet absorption spectra of certain ketimines and their related ketones

    Kaplan, Isaac R. (1952)

    Masters thesis
    University of Canterbury Library

    1. A review has been made of the preparation and properties of ketimines. At present no similar review exists in the chemical literature. 2. A discussion of the process of absorption, with particular reference to the carbonyl group has been offered. This discussion includes certain effects taking place, hyperconjugation being the most relevant to the thesis. 3. A series of diaryl ketones and ketimines have been prepared and studied by ultra violet spectroscopy; four of these compounds ( p-ethyl-, p-iso-propyl-, and p-tert.butyl-benzophenoneimine hydrochlorides, and p-tert.-butyl-benzophenone) have not been prepared before. The preparation and ultra violet absorption study of fenchone and fenchone-imine, have been described. 4. The Hilger Uvispek Spectrophotometer has been described and its limitations, with respect to accuracy, discussed.

  • Some correlates of superior academic ability.

    Francis, Ronald David (1959)

    Masters thesis
    University of Canterbury Library

    In very general terms the problem is to distinguish some factors associated with intellectual ability. The correlates sought were not thought to exist in any particular region but were sought merely as correlates 'per se'. This might be alternatively expressed by saying that this research was not started with any particular theory in mind. To qualify this last statement although no explicitly formulated theory was delineated it was presumed that both the background and the present qualities of a person join to form the likelihood of a person succeeding at any given task. A third factor, in addition to these two, enters into the problem. The third factor is the situation itself. In this case it was the university situation which for present purposes is fixed. Not only is the situation fixed at present but also is objectively the same for all students, whether sub-or-super-average. No doubt the subjective aspects are of direct relevance in many situations but in the interests of simplicity they lie outside the main scope of this study. We confine ourselves then to those aspects other than the situation. Firstly there can be a section of personal history or back-ground in which main results are tabulated under a series of standard headings. These items can then be subjected to some simple non-parametric statistical technique. By this method one can make a reasonably objective account of the significant items. Regrettably this approach is little used yet it seems to yield the most prolific results for the effort involved. For us this is the main area of interest. Secondly there is the concern with present qualities. In both practice and utility the most fruitful way of approaching this aspect of the problem seems to be through testing. Perhaps the crudest and consequently most acceptable dichotomy we could formulate would be that of cognitive vs personality aspects. Bearing in mind William James' famous dictum on fusion we might fruitfully try to assess the potency of each of these respective categories. By use of the outline above we may find certain factors to be related to academic ability but at the stage of this research they are better expressed as correlates only and little attempt will be made to arrive at the causative factors which mediate these correlates, should any be found to exist.

  • Soap flotation of calcite with particular reference to the upgrading of Caversham Sandstone

    MacKenzie, James M.W. (1959)

    Masters thesis
    University of Otago

    The Caversham sandstone forms a large deposit, several hundred feet thick extending over an area of the East coast of the Dunedin district. It is also found outcropping in the Lookout Point area. The high carbonate content of the deposit (40 - 65%) has caused attention to be focussed on the sandstone as a possible source of calcium carbonate. Some time prior to 1865 calcination was attempted in a sandstone quarry near the Kaikorai Valley while in 1865 specimens containing up to 68% carbonate were reported(20). The favourable location of the deposit in relation to the Milburn Lime and Cement Company's cement works at Burnside make it of economic interest to this Company as a potential raw material for cement manufacture. Before the sandstone could be used for this purpose considerable upgrading of the carbonate content would be necessary and modifications to its natural mineral content would be desirable. The two possible methods of doing this are: ( 1) to lightly grind the sandstone and size it to determine whether any of the constituents concentrate in particular size fractions (2) to float the carbonates with an anionic collector and modify the silicate, and perhaps the iron distribution, with a cationic collector. Froth flotation is widely used to produce cement raw materials of the correct chemical composition (2) and in all cases fatty acids or their derivatives are used as anionic collectors. This thesis attempts to explain the action of the more important fatty acids as collectors for calcite and to show how these reagents act as collectors for the carbonate minerals of the Caversham sandstone.

  • The ports of Otago & Bluff : a geographic comparison and contrast

    Farrant, Alfred E (1952)

    Masters thesis
    University of Otago

    Geography seeks to describe places or areas as entities in themselves as well as in their relations to other places or areas. The complex interaction of Physical and Cultural features combining in varied ways to form dynamic functioning units can be more clearly understood and some clue can be gained as to the causes of differences by arriving at an areal differentiation. The essential geographic character of any place is made more distinctive when it is compared or contrasted with that of any other place. This study in economic geography seeks to describe and in part, account for the character of two ports in the South Island of New Zealand. It is believed that such a comparative account which compares and contrasts the differential character of the ports, thereby gives a fuller understanding of the separate character of each port and its tributary areas, than if the ports are studied separately. Important factors are emphasised when there are contrasts between places, while similarities between them frequently serve to show that they do not necessarily lead to, or are derived from, similar circumstances. Furthermore places do not in fact exist in isolation. They have reciprocal relations with other places and areas. This is undoubtably true of ports wherever they are situated, but especially where adjacent ports such as the Ports of Otago and Bluff serve a common area. There are no insurmountable physical barriers between the ports, and the effects of history, invention, politics, customs and economics are invoked to illustrate how complexes of all or some of these factors have interacted with the physical features of the landscape to give these ports their distinctive present day characters. The economy of New Zealand is directed towards the overseas marketing of a pastoral surplus. This study seeks to show how dependent upon the maintenance of a regular flow of trade are the rural and urban areas of the portion of New Zealand served by these ports. The motto of the Otago Harbour Board, “By Ships We Live”, succinctly describes this situation.

  • The election of 1935 in New Zealand.

    Rollo, Carol Gertrude (1950)

    Masters thesis
    University of Canterbury Library

    Of all the elections in New Zealand's political history, only two qualify for the adjective momentous. In 1890 and in 1935, Governments came to power whose vigour and liberalism were not only to alter the lives of their. contemporaries, but also to make changes that had continual repercussions in this country and echoes in other nations' handling of social problems.
