For nearly a year New Haven has been seeking a more suitable college anthem, but because of failure up to the present time a new and more intensive campaign has been commenced which will not end, until next October.

During the war there was naturally enough, a great deal of dissatisfaction with "Bright College Years," but with the end of the conflict it was expected that this song could be resumed. However, unforeseen difficulties arose. The inflow of prominent Allied visitors made it impossible on many occasions for the Elis to sing their college anthem. Of most vidid memory to Harvard men is the game in the Bowl two years ago when M. Clemenceau was the cause of "For God, for country, and for Yale" being sung mentally or not at all.

Yale perseverance however is certain to solve the present problem. It may be remembered that the Blue was prevented for some time from singing the undertaker song, but, through the ingenious method of producing a super football team and still more recently, a championship hockey team, Yale has provided herself with several fine opportunities in a single season. There is every prospect of a musical Tad Jones appearing on the scene before October. But the music competition is open to everybody. A Yale man, Philip Barry, wrote "You and I" the prize winning 47 Workshop play of 1922. It would not be unbecoming for some genius of Music 4 to solve Yale's difficulty. Surely here is a chance for Harvard gallantry and incidentally, a sordid five hundred dollars.
