FOOTBALL SONGS.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The action of those in charge of singing at the football games as indicated in the communication printed elsewhere in this issue seems singularly calculated to attain the end desired. Musical composition like all other forms of artistic endeavor does not flourish under competitive stimulus with a set occasion for its object. We may want new songs, but it is doubtful if they can best be obtained in the old way. On the other hand we realize that no amount of enthusiasm on the part of the students singing a song can contribute anywhere nearly as much toward the perfection of the performance as training in the mechanics of singing it. Composition at leisure during the larger part of the year and intensive training at the mass meetings seems to be a procedure well devised for the end in view.
