General Assembly Invites Writers to
Try out Their Efforts
More efforts are being made to secure a Missouri state song. This time it is the legislature which is trying to select one. A committee at the University had charge of the selection but failed to find a suitable air.
The songs were sent to the University committee but now any author may appear in person with his song. Recently a woman was invited to bring a quartet to Jefferson City to sing a state song of which she was the author. Other song writers will be invited to try out their song before the legislature later in the season.
