The experimental evidence secured in connection with this research was made possible only through the active co-operation and personal interest of the gentlemen who acted as subjects. Our thanks are due to Mr. Kurt H. Arndt, Mr. J. J. Currie, and especially to Mr. H. L. Higgins and Mr. J. E. Fitzgerald, all of the laboratory staff. Mr. Fitzgerald furthermore assisted in practically all of the experiments on others than himself. We are indebted to Dr. W. G. Anderson, Director of the Yale University Gymnasium, not only for the physical measurements on some of our subjects, but likewise for his co-operation in certain of the tests. The extraordinary interest and fidelity to the routine exhibited on the part of the professional subject, Mr. Melvin A. Mode, should not pass without special comment. It would have been impossible to conduct a series of experiments of this type without the intelligent co-operation of the subject. The complicated tables in the report have received the careful preparation of Mr. W. H. Leslie, and the entire manuscript has had the editorial supervision of Miss A. N. Darling. To all of these co-workers we wish to
express our thanks.
