 ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 
At this time, I wish to express my thanks to the many people whose assistance has brought me to this final study in my doctoral program.Particularly indispensable was the valuable assistance to this study rendered by membersof my Advisory Committee, who graciously gave time and experienced counsel. Thesecommittee members were: Dr. Sidney B. Sperry, Dr. Ellis T. Rasmussen, and Dr. DanielH. Ludlow, whose guidance assisted in expediting this work.To Dr. James R. Clark, who introduced me to this study through his course on the Pearlof Great Price and who gave his unusual insights to this project, and whose relationshipto me gave me strength and hope, deep appreciation is given.I would feel remiss if special appreciation and heartfelt thanks were not tendered to mydear friend, E1lis T. Rasmussen, whose warm friendship and suggestions both ascommittee member and advisor provided the impetus, the matrix, and encouragementwhich made this study possible.To my wife, Diane, who gave the special incentive which made enduring endurable, andhas been so patient and helpful that I might have the necessary time to complete thisstudy, I give my love and appreciation.
