[IPAC-List] Seeking Taylor-Russell formulas

In 1939, T-R urged us to focus on utility over validity and provided 
tables to help us do that.  A second set of tables was published in 1971 
(refs below).

I would like to computerize these computations but have not found any 
references that give the formulas or computational approaches used by 
either the 1939 or 1971 article.

Any ideas?

the practical effectiveness of tests in selection, Journal of Applied 
Psychology,1939 (23) 5, 565-578.
