PREFACE
TO THE THIRD EDITION OF THE ILLINOIS SONG BOOK
IT is tradition at Illinois that when the battle rages loudest, Illinois songs ring truest. The greatest challenge to battle is calling Illinois students now; but, although our men are leaving and the student body is decreasing, the old spirit is alive, and Illinois students want to sing.
The Woman's League believe this to be the psychological time to prepare a revised edition of the songbook. The editors appointed have attempted to gather in it all the favorites from "Loyalty" to the serenade songs heard under the windows at night. They present their labor to the students. Their only reward shall be in finding that Illinois men and women forget not their old tradition but, because of the battle raging, they shall sing.
THE COMMITTEE ON REVISION :
Ruth Wikoff, Chairman Mynetta Engelland Susan Schaffer Lois Evans Francella Sargent
Rex R. Thompson Phil P. Young Louis Selzer
Neil Caldwell
