           TO ALUMNI AND STUDENTS.
  The ALUMNI MAGAZINE herewith enters up-on its fifth year
and the management hiopes its most successful one. It seems
hardly necessary to remind the alumni that hand in hand with
the expansion of the university should go that of its representa-
tive publication, but the MAGAZINE must have your individual
help if it is to exist or hold its own in the ranks of its contem-
poraries. It must be sustained by a loyal alumni spirit and
must remain dependent on the widely-scattered graduate body,
-even for news of a personal nature. The moneyed help is still
more important and has in the past barely met expenses. A
magazine of this'nature should at least pay for the labor put
into it. Other similar college publications-notably the ftan-
ford Alumnus-have grown so strong of late that they have felt
safe to leave the domain of monthlies and have entered the more
expensive field of the weekly. The WIs5ONsIN ALUMNI is not
prepared for this step yet, but trusts to grow under a generous
patronage to more and more meet the demands of the alumni
body. Let them show the proper spirit by promptly subscribing
and also keeping the readers of the MAGAZINE informed as to
their doings.
