The Spike: or, Victoria University College Review, June 1924

College Songs

College Songs.

It has been suggested—and the suggestion is worth serious consideration—that the best of the College songs should be reprinted with the music. The words are now printed in the Old Clay Patch and the C.U. Handbook, but the only copies of the music to which they should be hung seem to have been tattered and torn beyond all possibility of reclamation; this when they have not disappeared altogether. And it is not as simple as it might seem to hand down tunes, as it were, by word of mouth. They would not make a very big book, and the expense should, therefore, not be prohibitive. One thing is certain—the songs are not known as they should be; and this may be the method of getting them known. The matter any how will not be allowed to rest here.
