Appeal to Try Out More Football Songs.


[We invite all men in the University to submit communications on subjects of timely interest.]

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Forty songs were submitted to the song committee in this year's song competition. Of these forty songs only two have been sung at the mass meetings, and the success achieved by these two has been by no means tremendous. It is true that those on the committee are the most capable persons to choose these songs, but at the same time, it would seem that when as many as forty songs have been handed in, that the students should be given a chance to hear a few more out of these forty. A short time ago there was an announcement in the CRIMSON to the effect that seven songs had been chosen by the committee. Why should we not hear these seven? If it is impossible to have them orchestrated, some one will surely be able to play them sufficiently well on the piano to enable us to follow the tune. "1908."
