These notes were originally organized during the fall and winter of 1968-1969 as part of an assignment to a committee formed to make recommendations concerning the undergraduate curriculum in che College of Agriculture at Utah State University. A substantial portion of the phrasing of the arguments is not original. However, specific quotations are not indicated in the text . This procedure was not a particular disadvantage in the rush of committee work, but it is no longer feasible to go back and pinpoint each specific source . The best which can be done is to indicate in a general way the sections which have been taken from or influenced by the thoughts of other persons. The beginning section of the first statement is composed mainly of fragments of a lecture by Harold Taylor. The first section of the second statement is based extensively on comments made in a speech by Edward H. Levi. Other portions of the first section of the second statement are composed mainly of fragments from Rieswan and Jenks.
