Development Of Song Heritage
Here Has Been Slow Process

Little do Saturday's football fans
realize as they sing lustily or other-
wise the strains of "The Yellow and
Blue" or the stirring phrases of the
"Victors", that these songs were not
always a part of the Michigan heri-
tage. The development of the song
and singing spirit at Michigan has
been a slow process.
At the very time that the Tappan
or "Singing Oak" was christened in
1858-21 years after the University
was founded-there had not been
written a single typical University
f Michigan song, writes Franklin
Wagner, '99 '01, '04L, in the preface
of "The Michigan University Song
Book" he edited and published in
German Inspiration
Strange to say, writes Wagner, the
singing spirit at Michigan had a for-
eign source. About 1850 "Lauriger
Horatius," "Gaudemus" and "Integer
Vitae" were introduced from the Ger-
nan universities. Between that time
znd 1860 the seed thus sown began
o bear fruit by the adaptation of a
Few of the more popular songs of the
Eastern universities.
The next step in the development
vas the appearance of the "Song of
the Sixty-Threes". In the winter of
'64-'65, the "Palladium" board, an-
swering a popular request for a typi-
cal Michigan song, offered a prize
of ten dollars for the best original
song. President Haven, and Profs.
:'rienze and Evans passed upon the
rroductions offered; they selected
two of equal merit, recounts Wagner;
>ne, by Arthur H. Snow, '65, entitled
"Michigan University Song", and the
other by James K. Blish, '66, en-
'itled, "Our College Home".
"Yellow And Blue" Written
These songs, together with one by
~ichard S. Dewey, '69, entitled "Let
Every Student Fill His Bowl", con-
tinued for 20 years to be favorites at
he University, but it was not until
.889 that a really pretentious collec-
'ion of University songs appeared. In
that year, Charles Mills -Gayley, '78,
and Fred Newton Scott, '84, with the

assistance of Prof. Albert A. Stanley,
brought out "The Yellow And Blue".
The collection in which it appeared
met with immediate success.
Mr. Wagner's work, itself, was a
compilation of the best Michigan
songs written up to the year 1904.j
It clasified the songs under three'
groups: "Michigan Songs of Loyalty
ind Sentiment", "Michigan Comicj
Songs", and "Michigan Rooting Songsj
and Yells".
Outstanding among the first group
was the contribution, named the
"Victors", of one Louis Elbel, '00.
Anyone who has attended a Mich-
igan Homecoming Game has seenI
Mr. Elbel, for he has seen, and direct-
ed the band in playing his composi-
tion, at nearly every Homecoming
game since '04.
Comic Songs '
Among the comic songs in the col-
lection is one named, "The Co-ed
That Vanquishes Me", written by
Prof. Albert Stanley who, along with
Fred Newton Scott, was one of the
most prolific writers of Michigan
musical classics. The legend that
Michigan women are more intellec-
tual than beautiful must have al-
ready been fairly current then, for
it is to the women with "a brain full
'f books" that the author refers as
ianqiiching him.
Music For Union Opera
Michigan song writing has not:
stopped with the days of Stanley and
Newton, however. The advent of the
Union Operas has left a great heri-
tage of songs down through the years,
the contributions of such famous Op-
era productions as "Michigenda",
"Awakened Rameses", "Koanzaland",
and "Contrarie Mary". The shoes of
Stanley and "Newton have been ably
Filled by Elbel and Fred Lawton, '11,
whose "Varsity" still lives on as
virily as when it was published in
1911. They're big shoes to fill, but
the history of Michigan singing spirit
promises that its slowly growing heri-
tage of songs will not suffer decline
in the future.

'It's Thi's Way--" A
As much as we're against the idea, Christmas Vacation
will kbegin a week late this year. It won't be until the 21st
of December that we all make that merry trek homeward
to spend the holiday season with our families and friends.
So, you'll want to do your Christmas shopping here in
Ann Arbor, where you'll have plenty of opportunity to
choose from a multitude of attractive gifts which your

merchants offer.

Shop early here in Ann Arbor and avoid

that last-minute rush you always find at home.
