'V " \C17 ~FOREWORD N presenting for your consideration the Blue Book for 1923 I trust that it will serve a very useful pur- pose in placing before the citizens of the state concrete and practical information about the state government, I have felt that the story of government should be as interesting and as plainly told as possible. A democracy is based on an intelligent understanding of the practical affairs of government by the masses of the people. The objects of the Blue Book are to give-this intel- ligence and this understanding. This edition of the Blue Book has JH .,X I '-,,--,rp -,r A cli14A4rL LIf , i Ap 1-,L, 1 'Lf JOHN J.

He has called to his assistance in the compilation of this volume experts in various lines of state affairs., and you will find that this edition is an improvement over any former edition in several ways. The arrangement of topics, contents, clarity of statement, and general ap- pearance are especially excellent.

A sufficient number have been printed so that those failing to receive free copies within the limitations fixed by the statutes may purchase copies through the Superintendent of Public Property, State Capitol, Madison, Wisconsin.
