I have attempted to give credit throughout this book to the individuals who have sung to me these traditional songs and de­scribed the accompanying games. Yet there are several other persons who have assisted greatly in reducing this material to the printed page. To Miss Mable K. Pearse, private teacher of the Bentham rhythm work in Chicago, I express my gratitude for assistance in writing the description of a number of the games. Mrs. Edward F. White has read through the manuscript and made a number of improvements in the form of it. Finally, especial mention is due to Professor A. H. Tolman, of the University of Chicago, whose enthusiasm for ballad and epic poetry interested me in this study, and whose criticisms on this work have been invaluable.
