    Throughout this research I have had the benefit of frequent and lengthy discussions with Prof. George Peter Murdock. He has been a constant source of advice, encouragement, and intellectual stimulation. I am also indebted to the Department of Anthropology, University of Pittsburgh, for a grant which enabled me to pursue these interests during the summer of 1963, I am solely responsible for all theoretical interpretations, and any analytic errors.
