  A new song by Fred H. Hartwell,
'99 1, now city editor of the LaCrosse
Republican and Leader, and Frank J.
Gifford of Minneapolis, has just ap-
peared, with the title, "My Old Wis-
consin Home."
THE BADGER: Published by the
    Badger Board of the Junior Class
    of the University of Wisconsin.
    1901.
  Another Badger has appeared. The
1902 Board has followed worthily in
the footsteps of its predecessors, and
has produced a book that on the
whole is a credit to the University,
and one that compares favorably with
the annuals of other institutions.
  The increase of price from $1.00 to
$1.50, while not seemingly accom-
panied by any corresponding increase
in the- expense of publication, is,
nevertheless, more than justified by
the size and elaborateness ofthe book,
and is a change that should have
been made years ago.
  The mechanical get-up of the new
Badger is excellent. The binding is
of brown cloth and dark brown lamb-
skin, with a cover design represent-
ing the figurehead of the new battle-
ship "Wisconsin." This masterpiece
of naval construction is also illus-
trated by a photogravure insert. The
half-tones are uniformly good; indeed
the work of the engravers throughout
is ahead of that displayed by any
previous Badger. The one serious
defect of the book, one which detracts
much from its value for reference -
after all the chief purpose of college
annuals - is the number of typo-
graphical errors to be found on al-
most every page. The lack of careful
proof-reading is doubtless accounted
for by the unfortunate illness of the
chairman of the Board, Mr. Patrick,
