Excerpt from Songs of the University of Virginia T does seem remarkable that out of the long decades of song and romance which have clustered themselves about this old University, there has never before come a collection of her songs. There is other institution in this broad land where song and student life have been more closely interwoven. There is hardly an evening, whatever be the season, that the casual stroller does t hear the song of the reveler oating out across the Lawn, straying down from Carr's Hill, or at best those brave attempts at close harmony, struggling thitherward from The Corners. The Virginia Glee Club has made an enviable reputation, gathering its material from these wayward sources, but with the exception of the Glee Club there has been organ wherein these songs of our Alma Mater might assume permanent form, both for their preservation and wider circulation. Every Alumnus should have a copy of his University Song Book in his home; it will renew the old spirit; it will refresh the old memories; it will make you a firmer and truer son of the old Alma Mater.
