stimulation-of inter est in non-fiction materials, initiation of
research projects, organization of lectures and forums, arrangement

of opinions 011 vital issues, and cooperation with other

opinions expressed under its sponsorship deserve careful attention
and consideration. It is not, however, com mitted to these facts

study is the cooperative effort of many persons. While space
precludes mention of all, I should like to indicate those who have
contributed most directly. To the late George F. Arps, Dean of the
Graduate School of the Ohio State University, I am indebted for a
small grant-in-aid which made possible a national coverage in the
study. For statistical work, I am especially obligated to Dr. Viva
Boothe and Mr. Lester B. Kellogg of the Bureau of Business Eesearch
of the Ohio State University. To Dr. Frederick B. Lumley, Chairman
of the Department of Sociology, I wish to express appreciation for
encouragement, advice and the opportunity to work in this field. To
Dr. Lloyd Allen Cook, who served as advisor and director of the
study, I extend my thanks. His general knowledge of the field and
his interest in this specific project have been of inestimable
value. Over a period of several years he has given liberally of his
time and guidance. Those who have had the good fortune to be his
students will readily discern the evidences of his generous
scholarship. The volume is affectionately dedicated to my parents,
Maud and Emery Greenhoe, whose earlier aid and encouragement made
the venture possible. FLORENCE GREENHOE Departmentof Sociology Ohio
