e Nearly twice as much space will be
e given to pictures .in the 1920 Michi-
t ganensian as has been given in any
a 'previous year., This applies more
e 'particularly to the individual pictures,,.
"campus celebrities" and snapshots of
scenes on the campus during the past
t year.
e Joseph Avery, '21, was in charge of
r the staff photographers, and has ac-1
L complished such good results in thei

- he has been appointed for the same
- position with the 'Ensian next year
e under Willis Blakeslee, '21L. Con-
s cerning the quality of his work, which
e is to be reproduced in the yearbook,
- Lyndon's head photographer says he
f is "undoubtedly the best amateur pho-
e tographer on the campus." So muchl
for the quality of the snapshots.

Record Subscription
The Michiganensian has 2,600 sub-
scriptions, while the largest number
for any other year was 1,800. Of
these, 500 have been ordered ,by the
Board of Regents to send to the larger"
high schools throughout the country.:
Altogether, the 2,600 books being
printed will 'weigh 'more than nine'
tons. They will require 1,149,200'
square feet of paper, or more 'than 26:
acres, which Js enough to cover three-
fifths of the entire campus. Each page
must be run through the press twice,
making 4,066,400 pages to go through
the machines. -
There will be 1,001 new engravings
in the book, not including 148 stock
fraternity and sorority cuts. Eight
four-process engravings, alone will
cost $604. According to the engravers,
the 1920 Michiganensian will have
more engravings than any other col-,
lege annual. This was made possible
through the foresight of the Board in.

contracted for the work three years
ago, when the cost was comparatively
Weighs Seven Pounds
The yearbook will have 786 pages,
and will weigh seven pounds. The
cover will be of black "kowide" mofloy
with gold-embossed lettering, costing
$1.19 dpiece.
The engraving is being done at a
cost of $4,000, the printing at $6,000,
and the binding at $3,000. The books
will travel 180 miles by railroad -and
auto truck during these various proc-
A shortage of coal in Kalamazoo,
where they are being printed, delayed
the books for two weeks, but they are
expected to be ready for delivery the
latter part of next week. They will
be given -to the subscribers in alpha-
betical order at the publication office,
serving those first who :have paid up
in full.
Of the fifteen or more journals of
early Michigan history, three sur-'

The Palladium was founded'in 1859
as the official organ -of the Palladium
fraternities. This called forth the
Independent, later the Castalian, the
first regular college newspaper. It
was published by the independents.
In 1896 the Paladium and Castalian,
together with the Law Review, were
merged into the Michiganensian.

The art department .of the 1920
Michiganensian is the largest and best
of all similar departments. appearing
in previous numbers. The art staff
was headed by Reed Bachman, '20,
who has been the.chief contributor to
the Michiganensian for ythe past four'
years. He: has been on the art staff
since 1917. The other members of the
staff are: Mildred Barton, '22; Samuel
Wiener, '20A; Lee Boyd,''22; Hunter?
Griffith, '21; Carl W. Porter, '20E; W.
W. Gower, '23.
Bachman drew most of the draw-
ings appearing in the department.
His, greatest work was the drawing
of eight four-color paintings. These
paintings are entitled, The University,
Seniors, Classes, Athletics, Publica-
tions, Organization1s, Fraternities, and
Land Bachman
As a further sign of the exceptional
ability which Bachman ;possesses, the'
John and Olier Engraving Company,
of Chicago, engravers' for the Michi-
ganensian, said:.
"Baclman is undoubtedly the best'
college artist in America today. His
sense of color scheme is. particularly
The art department of the Michigan-'
ensian contains, 'in addition to the
eight large paintings by Bachman,
drawings heading the following de-
partments: Juniors, 'sophomores,
freshmen, football, .baseball, basket-
ball, tracki tennis, music, drama,. ora-
tory, society, cam'pus societies, honor
societies, literary and scientific socie-
ties, house clubs; professional frater-
nities,' women's dormitories, women's
athletics, and women's honor societies..
The ;drawings of the junior, sopho-
more an freshman departments are
thought by some to be Bachman's
most original work. They show a.
young Boston terrier, depicting the,
change in the eipression as the stu-
dent progresses from class to class.
This is one of the most unique fea-
tures of the depa'rtment.
