  Every Badger will want to read and
refer to this book from time to time
because here is a recipe for living with-
out fear, fatigue   or  nervous  stress
written out of the experience and med-
ical knowledge of a distinguished Wis-
consin alumnus.
  Many    will  remember    John   and
Dorothea Rickaby Schindler, '28, his
wife, as students on the Madison campus.
Now they live in Monroe, Wisconsin's
Swiss cheese capital of the world, where
Dr. John is chairman of the department
of medicine of the Monroe clinic. They
are the parents of four children-three
daughters and a son.
  Doctor John became nationally famou;
in 1949 when he advised a University
of Wisconsin Farm and Home Week
audience on "How to Live a Hundred
Years Happily." (reprinted in the Wis-
consin Alumnus). Since that time he has
become an exceedingly popular writer
and lecturer in addition to being a busy
doctor. Somehow or other, in spite of
the heavy schedule of past years, he has
been able to write this book of 213
pages. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, David
P. Barr, M.D., Physician-in-Chief, New
York Hospital and Professor of Medi-
cine at Cornell University and Father
Francis B. Thornton, book editor of the
Catholic Digest, are a few of the out-
standing persons who are praising it
highly. The first part of the book ex-
plains "how your emotions make you

"how to cure your emotionally induced
  Dr. Schindler asks, "How were your
last 365 days?" and oromises: "Your life
can b2 an exhilirating and enthusiastic
journey through a golden avenue of
dcays, a happy tune. Actually,
a life of that kind is just as easy, and
infinitely better, than the old way of
muddling through.''
   Walter H. Voskuil, '21, Chief Mineral
   Economist, Illinois State Geological Sur-
   vey and Professor of Mineral Economics,
   University of Illinois. McGraw-Hill Book
   Co., Inc. (Price: $5.75.)
   This is a logical, interesting treat-
ment by a leading authority on this
Subject. The book is concerned with the
Fart played by minerals in economic
productivity, and in the establ'shment
and maintenance of a high standard of
Your lucky mascot,
     Bucky Badger
Bucky Badger is five inches tall, with
a cardinal sweater and white trousers
-and a wicked gleam in his eye.

desk, mantel or recreation room. Get
one for that son or daughter dream-
ing about following in your footsteps
someday on your favorite campus.
Everybody likes Bucky Badger, so
order yours today.
