T, 1941, BY THE AtJTHOK PRINTED IN THE UNITED This 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.
