1 The Ohio School of the Air Teachers Manual 1966-67; Once Upon a Time in Ohio; Chevron School Broadcast (two books)
Columbus, Ohio Ohio State University Telecommunications Center 1966 Soft Cover Very Good 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
Two books, both in crisp, clean condition and both for the school year 1966-67. Staple bound. The Ohio School of the Air began in 1929 as a means to educate Ohio school children on both the primary and secondary levels. For a bit less than ten years ithe program was government funded, but the state legislature stopped the flow of money in 1937. Somehow it endured though, at least through the 1970's. At the time these books were printed broadcasting was out of Columbus. Both books offer the teacher summaries and suggested classroom activities to coordinate with the programs. Subjects here are Ohio history and the heritage of Pan-America.

The Human Betterment Course: Personal Lessons in Body and Brain Building for Health and Efficiency, Brennan, John
3 Brennan, John The Human Betterment Course: Personal Lessons in Body and Brain Building for Health and Efficiency
New York Bureau of Human Betterment Inc. 1919 Presumed First Soft Cover Good 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
This is a very scarce item which I have been researching on and off for months. It's a nine lesson course written by the former editor of Popular Culture magazine in which he wrote articles about birth control when it was highly controversial. That topic and the title of this course in body building brought up the dark story of E. S. Gosney and his The Human Betterment Foundation located in Pasadena, California in 1928. Gosney's goal seemed to envision America and apple pie, but it was really all about eugenics and the involuntary sterilizations of Californians considered lacking by the standard of the Gosney's organization. Gosney also was linked with Nazi Germany. However, iIf there is a conenction between these two entities I can't find it. Brennan's course came out in 1919 and Gosney's Foundation began in 1928. The course appears benign - much like Swoboda's - body building, positive thinking and mind over matter. There are nine lessons pesented simply, again just as Swoboda's were. Everything is clean and nice, but I think this was at one time in a portfolio. Both the front cover and foreword have been trimmed down (doesn;t affect text) and there is no back cover.
