To the Editors of the Crimson:
Why not a University Song as well as a University Club? For there seems to be a strange lack of a college song familiar to all of us. All our gatherings seem incomplete without one. We know how quickly the sympathies of an assembly are awakened by the stimulus of a good chorus. It has the same virtue as a college yell in that each man contributes his part to the common expression, and is conscious of his participation; in fact, the college song is the proper complement of the college cheer.
I propose that all those who have the gift of versification send in a copy of a song to the Editors of the CRIMSON. The song should contain not more than three stanzas, and be set preferably to the air of "Up the Street." The contributions will be placed in the hands of a competent committee, who will select the most fitting for a permanent University song.
