The Founding of the Fraternity- 


ime, "^recrf Naaman the SyHanJ'* 

THief&undinVKaMaongbook, (BETA CHAFTEB.) 

1. Long long ago, in days of old. 
When our grandsires were young, 

Minerva with her owl came down, 

Some youthful maids among. 
Her shield upon her arm she wore, 

Her helmet on her head; 
A casket in her hand she bore. 

And thus to them she said: — 

2. ^'I come from fair Olympian heights, 
Where rules the mighty Jove, 

To you fair maids the task I bring, 

A theorem to prove: — 
That secrets ma^ be told to you 

And other maidens too, 
And you will keep them safe and sound. 

As any man can do." 

3. ^1 give to you this golden cask, 
And in it you will see 

A gift to gladden woman's eyes — 

The magic * Golden Key.' 
Unite, unite young maidens all 

In bonds of K. K. G. 
Tie up your frocks in blue and blue. 

Ana come along with me." 

4. And so it is we Eappa girls 
Still sing Minerva^s praise 

She is our royal Eappa queen, 

And shall be all our days. 
And though afar in many lands 

Some ^ppa girls may roam, 
Minerva, with her owl will come 

And lead them safely home. 

Anne L. Woods.

Welcoming Song, 

Air, **FiM VAnumr:* (BETA GHAFTIBB.) 

1. We welcome you now to our well beloved band, 

Vive les Eappa girls! 
We pledge to you now our hearts and our hands, 

Vive les Eappa girls! 
We ask you to help us be brave and be true, 
And do with our might what our hands find to do. 
And we may perhaps prove a help to you too. 

Vive les Kappa girls! 


Vive les — ^Vive les, eta

Opening Song. 

Ait, "Lamrigtr BtnUm." (BRTA CHAFTBB.) 

\. Once agaiiiy my sisters dear, 
Here we meet together, 
While our songs and words of cheer 
Bind us firm forever. 

Kappa girls, 0, Eappa girls, 
Cease your labors never, 

But keep firmly toiling on 
For Eappa girls forever. 

2. While we now our voices raise, 
And oar hearts, too, blending. 
Shout aloud in songs of praise 
To Eappa girls ascending. 


Inbz Jonss. 

Work, Girls, Work. 

Air, ''Cfteer, Boyt, CJbMr/* (BETA CHAPTER.) 

1. Work, girls, work with earnest hearts and tnie ones; 
Work, girls, work with will and purpose strong; 
Never give o'er to idle thoughts of failure, 

With willing hands work faithfully and long. 
Thus shall we make our lives more true and kindly; 
Good will ever follow where 

Eappa girls are found. 
Forgetting not our motto, we'll 
Keep our aim sublime, 
And long in the future the 
Eappa praises sound. 


Sing, girls, sing of Eappa joys and friendships; 

Sing, girls, sing with joyful happy hearts; 
Praise long and loud the merry hours in Eappa, 

Remembered long after each from the other parts. 

Clara W. Robinson.

Air, **Lad Ofgwr^ (BOBFk CHAFTEB.) 

1. The years roll on while day and night 

Alternate come and go, 
And sorrows grieve and hopes delight, 

And joy is linked with woe. 
The Summers bring the bird in song, 

The Autumns bird on wing, 
But through the Winter's cold and long. 

It prophesies the Spring. 


Still let this be our song, 
Still let this be our song, 
Though time should bring us joy or woe, 
Our hopes will still rise strong. 

2. The friends we learn to prize depart^ 

The loves we cherish fly; 
And ofb we see with breaking hearty 

Our fair dreams shattered lie. 
But new friends come to bright our lives 

And new loves fill our days, 
And new dreams o'er the old ones rise 

To cheer our darkened ways. 


Cammib Pemdlbton Gaines.

Song to Minerva. 

Air, '•aoKO iff ihB iSoM.'* (BBTA CHAFTEB.) 

1. To Minervay our queen, let our song rise to-night, 

And let our hearts thrill with our zeal. 
Let us sing of her war deeds and steel armor bright, 
Her owl, and her good spinning wheel. 


Then sing us a song of our queen, 

A song that is merry and gay; 
She wears a steel bonnet whose fashion don't change^ 

And carries her owl night and day. 

2. She's steady and valiant, and ready to lead 

The charge in defense of the right, 
And where her shield flashes 'tis easy to read 
Success in its glittering light. 

C horns : 

8. But when the strife's over she's ready to cease 
From conflict and war's bloody show; 
She rather inclines to the labors of peace, 
For she isn't strong-minded, you know. 


Then ring out the praise of our queen 

Who wars for the right side alone; 
And when it's all o'er, takes her owl and her shield, 

And tends to her business at home. 

Cammib Pbndlbton Oainss. 

Song to the OwL 

Air, ""DmMn Bow.'* (BETA GHAPTIB.) 

1. Whether out in the darkness and the night, 

Flying so fearless and free. 
Or perched on the shield of our queen so bright, 

Bird of wisdom, we weicome-thee. 
For thou art the emblem, chosen by her, 

Of her wisdom boundless and strong, 
And so by her votaries ever held dear 

And honored with praises of song. 

2. Thou art wise with the wisdom of the past. 

Thou art filled with a knowledge divine; 
What the oracles tell and the dark fates cast. 

Are known to thee by every sign. 
When Minerva, engaged in council deep, 

Utters wisdom and eloquence rare. 
Thou art with her and know how her wisdom to keep 

In thine own breast and guard it well there. 

3. Though men may consider thee only a bird. 

And not gifted with wisdom or power, 
We know that thy breast is with deep thought stirred 

And thy soul ponders hour by hour. 
So we honor thy majesty, grave but serene. 

And give praise to thy mystical ways. 
And sing of thee, guard of Minerva, our queen, 

In merry and gay-ringing lays. 

Cammib Pbvdueton Oainss. 


Full on the Listening Bar. 


1. Full on the listening ear 
Falls music sweet and clear. 

Nature rejoices 
With countless voices; 
Rippling brooks and waving trees 
Sing with each passing breeze. 
Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise God above! 
Praise Him! Praise Him! For He is love. 

2. Dark hang the clouds overhead, 
Cool on earth's thirsty bed 

Fall summer showers. 
While form the flowers. 
Fragrance mingles with the lays 
Sung by the birds in praise. 
Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise God above! 
Praise Him! Praise Him! For He is love. 

8. Come join with sweet refrain, 
Let wood and vale and plain, 
Echo our voices. 
Loud ring the anthems free, 
Through all eternity. 
Praise Him! Praise Him! Praise God above! 
Praise Him ! Praise Him ! For He is love. 

Elizabeth Putman Hbaton.

Gay are the Merry Hours. 

Air, '*Bhte •TuonKa.** (BBTl GHAFIBEL) 

1. Gay are the merry hours. 

Brimming o^er with laughter, 
That with mirth we sacrifice 

On fun's festive altar. 
Words running o'er with gayety 

Urge on time's flying footsteps, 
While our grave owl serene looks down, 

Reminding of her precepts. 

2. Good are the quiet hours 

Given to fond endeavor. 
When we consecrate our powers 

To wisdom and Minerva. 
Full of mirth and wing-ed thought. 

They teach us many a lesson. 
While our wise owl serene looks down. 

Our work to help or hasten. 

3. Sweet are the pleasant hours 

Full of choicest treasure. 
That with joy we dedicate 

To friendship without measure. 
Words come straight from loving hearts. 

With hope and gladness teeming, 
While our good owl benign looks down. 

So kindly on us beaming. 

Clara W. Robinson.

Gleaming and Bright. 

Air, ''aparkUna amd BrighL'' (BETA CHAFTEB. ) 

1 • Gleaming and bright in the fitful light 
Of our incense to Minerva, 
Shines the plumage bright of our "Queen of Night'* 
As she reigns on her throne of honor. 


Then we'll give her our praise. 

And our glad songs raise. 

Full of hope and zeal and gladness, 

And we'll swell the song 
And its notes prolong 

Till we banish afar all sadness. 

2. Her eyes gleam fierce, and her keen looks pierce 

To the heart of all crime and evil. 
And their glow makes bright all the gloom of night, 
And cheers the heart of trouble. 


3. May our hearts be white as her plumage bright, 

And our motives pure as her color. 
And our minds grow wise in the glow of her eyes, 
And our souls take fire from her ardor. 


Clara W. Robinson. 


To-Whit To-Whoo. 

Air, **Oo cache lunk.*' (BETA GHAFTBB.) 

1. There's a nook in old St. Lawrence 

Where the great white owl presides, 
And a throng of happy maidens 
'Neath his wings for aye abides. 


And the snowy owl, my sisters, 
Cries to-whit, to-whit, to-whoo, — 
Oh! to-whit, to-whit, to-whoo, to-whoo, 
To-whoo, to-whit, to-whoo. 

2. Mystic shapes and lovely visions, 

Underneath the moon's pure light, 
Hold their revels there forever. 
At the hoar of deep midnight. 

C horns: 

3. Heed the shapes and see the visions, 

my Eappa sisters dear. 
Let the snowy owl's good counsel 
Guide you in your pathway here. 


Clara W. Bobibson. 


The Kappa Girls. 

Air, ''John Brwm," (BETA CHAPTKB.) 

1. The Kappa girls united stand, 

Determined to succeed 
In driving evil from the land 

And helping those in need, 
In leading true and useful lives 

Let's ever take the lead, 
And thus promote the good. 


Three rousing cheers for the Kappas! 
Three rousing cheers for the Kappas! 
Three rousing cheers for the Kappas! 
Three cheers for the Kappa girls. 

Inez Jones. 



OrigimU Air 6y Florenee Lm. (BETA CHAFTEB.) 

1. Oay little bluebells nodding in summer time. 

Buttercups, daisies, and stargrass blue, — 
What if a dark cloud should blot out your sunshine? 
What if your cups should not fill with the dew? 

2. Little brown meadow-brook, fretting your rushes, 

Scolding your pebbles and laughing low, — 
What if a cold frost your merry voice hushes? 
What if your springs should forget to flow? 

3. Bobolink, bobolink, singing so cheerily, 

Trill to your patient mate snug and warm, 
But a wind trom the west is blowing drearily, — 
What if it bring to your nest some harm? 

4. Buttercups, bluebells, daisies and stargrass. 

Meadow-brook, bobolink, what can you say? 
"Oh doubting heart trust while dark or bright hours 
Have faith for the future and joy for to-day." 

Cammib Pendleton Gainbs.

When I was a Girl. 

Air from '*Pintkfi>re:' (BETA GHAPTEB) 

1. When I was a girl I used to belong 

To the Kappa fraternity famed in song, [floor, 

We washed our own windows and swept our own 
And polished up the handle of our outside door. 
[: We polished up that handle so carefully 
That our daughters now belong to that fraternity. :] 

2. Every Saturday night we used to meet, 

When we'd finishea our studies at the end of the week. 
We always voted at our president's call, 
And we never, hardly ever, voted wrongly at all. 

[: We voted so well, as you can see. 

That our daughters now belong to this fraternity. :] 

3. Our members were few, but all were inclined 

To make our fraternity the best of its kind; [work. 

And I'm sure we succeeded in accomplishing our 

As none of our members were ever known to snirk. 

[: We did our work so well and successfully 

• That our daughters now belong to that fraternity. :] 

4. 'Twas the duty of the president to see 

That the members were restrained from levity. 
She did that duty so well indeed, 
That you hear of her in many of the papers you read. 
She now has her own to restrain, you see, 
*or her daughters now belong to this fraternity. :] 

5. The duty of the secretary 'twas to write 

The proceedings of the meetings each Saturday night. 
She read the program with a smile so bland, 
And she copied them all in a big round hand. 

i: She copied them all in a hand so free^ 
^hat her daughters now belong to this fraternity. :] 

6. Now members all, whoever you may be. 
If you want to rise to the top of the tree; 

If your soul isn't fettered by a secretary's stool, 
Be careful to be guided by this golden rule: 

[: Do your duty well and faithfully, 

And your daughters may belong to this fraternity. :] 

Flobenob J. Lbb. 




**l7p<d0e.** (BETA GHAFTEB.) 

1. The girls were coming down stairs one night, 

The Kappa girls, ha-ha! ha-ha! 
Without the faintest trace of a light, 

The Kappa girls ha-ha! 
When they reached the bottom, two ' men appeared. 

And watched those stairs 'till each girl disappeared. 


The Kappa girls ha-ha! ha-ha! 

Kappa girls. Kappa girls. 
Kappa girls ha-ha! ha-ha! 

Kappa girls ha-ha! 

2. Those girls started out as brave as mice, 

The Kappa girls ha-ha! ha-ha! 
And went down main street in a trice. 

The Kappa girls ha-ha! 
The corner was reached in haste by them. 

And there stood those same identical men. 


3. Those girls were frightened almost to death, 

The Kappa girls ha-ha! ha-ha! 
For halt a mile they held their breath, 

The Kappa girls ha-ha! 
And what do you think those men did then ? 

Why they never said one word to them. 


Geobgietta B. Hale.

Kappa Girls. 

** WcM fwr IM TToffon.* (BETA CHAPTBB) 

1. The Kappa girls are happy, 

The Kappa girls are gay, 
They pass some hours of Kappa 

In a very original way. 
And they never make a speech unless 

There's something for them to say. 


Then long live the Kappas, 
Long live the Kappas, 
Long live the Kappas, 
So happy, light, and gay. 

2. They sit upon the floor, 

When they haven't any chairs. 
They scrub the floor with their own hands, 

And make light of their cares. 
When they go home they strike a match. 

To light them down the stairs. 


Inez Jonbs. 


Free Holiday Song. 

**PoUyJWoUy Doodle.'' (BETA.) 

1. *Twas black midnight by the chapol clock, 

Tra la la, la la, la la, 
At the Kappa door came a deadly knock, 
Tra la la, la la, la la. 


Come out, come out, come out my merry maids. 

With your wierd incantations, and your wild mach- 
Plant our tree with your delving spades. [inations 

2. A row of ghouls stole softly out, 

Tra la la, la la, la la. 
And put some trembling Fresh, to rout, 
Tra la la, la la, la la. 


3. That night the Fresh, beheld strange sights, 

Tra la la, la la, la la. 
Uncanny rites and will-o-wisp lights, 
Tra la la, la la, la la. 


4. On the morrow morn, on the college green, 

Tra la la, la la, la la, 
A new and thriving tree'U be seen. 
Tra la la, la la, la la.

**Oii the Banks of the Old RarUan:* (BETA. ) 

1. When first I entered Kappa Gamma, 

As a shy, reluctant Freshman girl. 
With fear I trembled so 
That I shook the room, I know. 

And my wits all got tangled in a whirl. 


Then we'll sing of dear old Kappa Gamma, girls, 
For she's given us many a happy hour. 

For where shall we find 

Any friends more true and kind 
Than the girls that we loved in her band? 

2. But as I passed from Fresh, to Junior, 

I learned to prize her more and more; 
For she gives to every one 
Friendship, gaiety and fun. 

With a measure that is full and running o'er. 


3. And when at last I was a Senior 

I found in her my chief delight; 
For I'd searched in wisdom's ways 
And sung Alma Mater's praise 

With my loyal Kappa sisters day and night.

Song to the Organ. 

**AMaUe." (BETA.) 

1. An organ, an organ the Kappa girls own, 

Its pedals are loose and the reeds are all gone, 
But music so sweet that it makes our hearts beat, 
Swells out in a tremendous tone. 


We care not what others may say, 

That organ is ours to play, 
We defy you to try 

To take that loved organ away. 

2. Though terror and fright on initiates seize, 

And featherless freshmen are ill at their ease. 
Girls say who have seen what thy mystic notes mean, 
"Apollo is touching the keys." 


3. Then Kappas forever our organ we'll keep, 

Its music will cheer when with sadness we weep; 
When school days are o'er, and we hear it no more. 
Its notes will be sweet dreams in sleep. 



Anna L. Woods.

Song of the Alumnae. 

Air, '*Tenii$to ontheOld Cfamp Onmnd,*^ (BETA GHAPTEB.) 

1. We are gathered to-night in the chapter room, 

Sisters old and new, 
To sing once more of the dear old home, 
And pledge our faith anew. 


We are singing to-night, singing to-night. 
Singing in the dear old room. 

2. When the burden of life is hard to bear, 

And we sigh for a time of rest, 
The lamp of love from the old room cheers, 
And we fly to the old homo nest. 


3. May it be to you in the years to come, 

When out in life's highway, 
An anchor safe and a harbor sure, 
A beacon bright as day. 


Geobgibtta B. Hale. 


Good-Night Song. 

Air, '•Old fiimdfMi." (BETA GHAFTEB )

Reunion Song. 

Air, ''Afml€ LUU,'' (GAMMA GHAFTBB.) 

1. Oh thou dear old band in college, 

How I love thee yet. 
The sweet ties of Kappa Gamma 
I shall ne'er forget 

C horns: 

Fade friendship, vanish treasure, 
Fickle fortune cheat, 
We shall still remember Kappa, 
For her memory's sweet. 

2. Oh thou blue and blue of Kappa 

Fadeless still thou art, 
Oh thou tried and true old Kappa 
Linger in my heart. 


3. Though in after years I wander 

Far from sisters true, 
In my heart shall e'er be cherished 
Kappa's own true blue.

Here in the Dear Old Place. 

Air, **J7ov Oan I Leam Thee,*' (QAMMA GHAFTEB.) 

1. Here in the dear old place. 

Where all is life and bright, 
Contented looks each face, 

And eyes are bright. 
The days are flying fast. 

Quickly they come and go, 
While we are young and gay 

Happily they flow. 

2. What shall the future be? 

Very little care we now. 
Sorrow perhaps well see. 

Care shade our brow. 
But we this eve will sing 

Happy, happy, Kappa songs. 
Making the echoes ring 

Where joy belongs. 

3. Let us then at ev'en tide 

As we are gathered now. 
Friends standing at our side 

Make here our vow. 
Here shall our hearts abide, 

However far we roam. 
Though over oceans wide, 

Here is our home.

Welcome sister to our order, 
Steadfast may you ever stand; 

May your deeds be good and noble.

Welcome from each; 
Let all your deeds be good and noble,

For Kappa bonds are sweet.

To Join the Ranks of Kappa. 

Air, ''DixU," (DELTA CHAPTBB.) 

1. When first I to this college came. 
Few were my days and small my fame; 

That is true — nothing new, 

But I hoped to be a Kappa. 
Fd heard fraternities were nice, 
Select in number and precise; 

It is true, to my view, — 
Yet I hoped to be a Eappa. 


Oh! I wish I were a Kappa, 
If I could, then I should. 

Oh! I'd like to be in Kappa's band 
And live and die a Kappa Gam. 

Yes, I would if I could, 
I would like to be a Kappa. 

2. The Kappas called on me one day. 
The conversation turned this way: 

" We to you thus do sue 
To join the ranks of Kappa." 

The very next meeting held, I trow, 

I joined their ranks, and now I vow 
To be true to the blue — 

The double blue of Kappa. 


And now I am a Kappa, 
Yes, I am a Kappa Gam. 

With pleasure Rreat and heart elate, 
I'll live and die a Kappa. 

Yes^ I am a Kappa Gam — 
How good to be a Kappa! 

3. Now, fresh barbarians warning take; 
If mystic food you'd like to break. 

Have in view this to do. 

Or you'll never be a Kappa: 
With studying hard store well your mind, 
Be neat and gentle, good and kind, 

And be true, and you'll do 
To join the ranks of Kappa.

The home of mirth and glee. 
And oft they echo to the sound 
Of Kappa jollity, 

2. Then let the laugh and jest go round 

And mirth be unconfined; 
And may the pleasure of this night 
In memory be enshrined. 

3. And let us join to praise the day 

That saw us Kappa's own. 
Of all the students in the land 
We surely envy none. 

4. And often, as in after years, 

These happy days come back, 
And memory, in her magic car, 
Shall take life's olden track.

As years draw on, become 
True wisdom's crown upon the brow, 
As o'er the world we roam. 


6. And when life's lessons all are o'er 

may we meet to dwell 
Around our Father's Throne in Heaven, 
No more to say '* Farewell." 


No more to say " Farewell,'' dear girls.

Around our Father's Throne in Heaven 
No more to say "Farewell."

Reunited now we greet, 
While our lives were cast apart, 
We united were in heart. 
After absence we can trace 
Joy in each familiar face. 

We return, dear Kappa^ to thee 
Loyal as ever, loyal to thee, 
Loyal as ever, loyal to thee. 

2. Broken is our golden chain. 
Some we seek, but seek in vain; 

We would clasp their hands once more 

And recall the days of yore. 

But we know the past's secure. 

And the future now is ours. 

Be our aim, then, noble and true. 

Faithful to Kappa, faithful and true. 

Faithful to Eappa, faithful and true.

Circle of the Golden Key.

1. When summer zephyrs fan my brow, 

And flowers 'neath weight of dew-drops bow;

And crickets chirp beside the rill; 
When cares seem softened like the light, 
And musings sweet my soul delight, 

My tend'rest thoughts are all of thee, 

circle of the golden key! 


The years may come, and years may go, 
The rippling waters seaward flow; 
Time cannot change our love to thee. 
Blest circle of the golden key! 

2. When autumn's sunset hues are shed 
On field and wood, with purple shred; 

And partridge whirring from the glen 

Attracts the eager huntsman's ken; 
When melody of voices sweet 
Is heard in groves with nute complete; 

Each leaflet's hue reminds of thee. 

Dear circle of the golden key! 


3. When winter's snow and ice abound, 
And raging tempests surge around; 

When landscapes hoar are bleak and drear, 

And earth seems vegetation's bier; 
When yule-logs glow in chimneys wide. 
And glad hearts greet the Christmas tide; 

Then from the coals arise to me. 

Bright visions of the golden key. 


4. In the poetic dream of youth. 
When riper years bring sterner truth; 

Where Lethe's peaceful waters glide. 

Where Scylla's surging billows chide; 
In tropic bower, or land ot ice. 
Wherever sounds my duty's voice; 

Still will my heart be true to thee. 

Blest circle of the golden key!

The star of hope burns bright within. 
And glad young hearts, by friendship led.

Nor time nor space can us divide; 

The needle to the north star turns, 
E'en on the ocean's restless tide.

Each loyal heart within our band; 
When fellowship of kindred minds. 

With faith and truth, move hand in hand.

Play, oh, Eappa Eappa Gamma, 
Well thy part

For we go marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah, 
As we go marching on.

And with common sense our shield, 
We expect to shun all evil — 

For the right our power to wield. 
And as the years roll onward 

And we slowly quit the field, 
We'll leave you marching on.

In our school days passing 

Which we sisters loved so well, 
All our joys were lasting — 

We ne'er knew farewell.

Be thou ever yet my guide. 

Kappa Kappa Gamma, 
Let no ill^betide. 

2. While yet unspoken 

Hangs the word on trembling tongue. 
And yet unbroken 

Is the triune one. 
May all joy and gladness 

Lighten lives we love so well. 
Free from every sadness, 

Kappa friends farewell.

Praise and honor be to thee

Initiation Song. 

Air, ''BaUy Round the Flag:* (KAPPA CHAPTER.) 

1. Kappa had a little goat of which we now will tell, 

Adding to the anguish of the victim, [well. 

And when the Kappas took a barb, he did his duty 
Adding to the anguish of the victim. 


Kappa forever! hurrah and hurrah! 

Up with our colors and up with our key, 

We will rally round our goat, yes we'll rally once again, 

Adding to the anguish oT the victim. 

2. This goat had horns both long and sharp which mis- 

chief did foretell, 
Adding to the anguish of the victim, 
And when the goat began to prance the Kappas 

gave their yell. 
Adding to the anguish of the victim. 

C horns : 

3. The Kappas had a long tin horn to call the spirits in, 

Adding to the anguish of the victim. 
And when the herald blew a blast, it raised a dread- 
ful din. 
Adding to the anguish of the victim. 


4. And when the barb grew weary and the goat began 

to pant, 
Adding to the anguish of the victim. 
The spirits ceased from troubling while they sang a 
doleful chant, 
Adding to the anguish of the victim. 


5. And when the chant was ended, each a broomstick 

brought to view, 
Adding to the anguish of the victim. 
And mounted safely on her stick each spirit then 
Giving great relief unto the victim.

Ye Kappa Women. 

ManeaiM Hymn. (LAMBDA CHAPTBR.) 

1. Ye Kappa women rouse to action! 

A striving nation bids ye rise, 
Behold how faction wars with faction, 
How suflfering virtue in anguish cries, 
How suffering virtue in anguish cries: 
Shall horrid evil stalk undaunted 
With smooth bold mien and sin-stained hands, 
And waste and desolate our lands. 
While hearthstones by foul crime are haunted? 


To work! To work! Be brave! 
Bid heart and mind be strong, 
March on, march on; all onward march 
Toward honor, truth and God. 

2. Let Kappa Gamma be your glory. 

Let Kappa Gamma be your pride. 

Inspire to deeds of noble story. 
And lift the soul to heights untried, 
And lift the soul to heights untried; 

Let womanhood unfold its beauty. 
Assert its strength and wield its power, 
Give to the world the golden dower, 

A life prepared for every duty.

Their love song to the moon, 
I have heard the cow-bells ringing 

As the cows came down the aoon, 
But a sweeter sound has cheered me 

Than these rustic sounds of night, 
And a harder head has hit me 

Than the flint rock, smooth and white, 
'Twas thy voice, my gentle Billy, 

And thv skull, smooth as the sea, 
That made this girl a Kappa, 

Bonny goat of K. K. G. 

2. I have seen the swift sledge hammer 

Beat upon the softened steel. 
But I never saw a hammer 

Equal the swift blows of thy heel. 
In thine eyes a wicked glitter. 

Round thy mouth an artless smile. 
As you tossed your head triumphant, 

Backing gracefully the while. 
Then vou bent your head sweet Billy, 

Made a reckless leap at me. 
Sent me flying into Greek land. 

Bonny goat of K. K. G. 

3. Tho' thy voice may lose its sweetness. 

And thy eye its wicked gleam; 
Tho' thy foot may lack its fleetness, 

And thy form unlovely seem, 
Still to me wilt thou be dearer 

Than all the world shall own. 
I have loved thee for thy service, 

But not to me alone, 
I have seen the winsome maidens 

You have tossed in here by me, 
And that scene has made me love thee,

Her praise in this fond good night.

We'll wave on high with a gladsome cry

Where oft our voices blended.

When other friends surround us.

Our Kappa Maid. 

Air '*Roldn Adair.'' (PHI CHAPTEB. 

1. There came to our B U. 

A shy young maid/ 
From awe and reverence due, 

Almost afraid; 
Desiring much to view 
The hillot knowledge true, 
And climb the steep slopes, too — 

0! prudent maid! 

2. Day after day she saw, 

Girls here and there withdraw 

In secrecy, 
And many glances cast, 
At her when'er she passed; 
It troubled her at last, 

This modest]^maid. 

3. Then she began to be 

" Such a fine maid is she," 

So they all said. 
She thought them wondrous kind. 
They all the more combined 
To captivate her mind. 

Short sighted maid. 

4. November first brought her 

A kind request 
To join their ranks; daughter 

Of Eve how blessed! 
" Fm yours forever 
And naught shall^ever 
Me from you sever," 

Replied the maid. 

6. At last the appointed day 

Was really come. 
When clad in bright array, 

With rapture. 
To join with piety 
This great society, 
In some anxiety. 

Aspired our maid. 

6. Of what was said and done 

We may not speak. 
This only can be known: 

•It was' all. Greek. 
But now in many ways. 

Friends brighten all her days; 
Her lips sound forth our praise — 

Our Kappa maid. 


Our Colors. 

^<r, "J'oir Harvard," (PHI CHAFTEB.) 

1. One bright summer morning I stood on a clifi 

By the side of the deep rolling sea, 
And the beautiful picture before me displayed 
Ever since has been present with me. 


Oh, three rousing cheers with a hearty good will 
For the colors to which we are true; 

For the truth and the tenderness dear to our hearts, 
Oh, hurrah for the Blue and the Blue. 

2. At my feet was the ocean, its waters so blue 

Always moving resistless in might, 
And above me the glorious vault of the sky 
Calm, yet sweetly respondent with light. 


8. As I gazed on the sight 'twas translated to me 
And I now give its meaning^to you; 
Truth and power are symbolized by those blue waves, 
Love and tenderness by the sky's hue. 


4. And the dark and the light blue together do show 
What of Kappa girls ever is true, [fail 

That their strength, truth and tenderness never will 
While the ocean and sky remain blue. 

The Best Fraternity, y i^

Of which we now will tell, —

Our hearts unite as one; 
And steadfast to our vows we all 

Remain from sun to sun. 


The best fraternity, 
The best fraternity. 

Our vows so true 

We now renew 
To our fraternity. 

2. There's nothing strikes the chords of love 

So quickly as its call, 
There s nothing so endearing 

As the bonds it gives to afl, 
If in our deeds we strive to be 

An honor to the band, 
And with our aim defined and true 

We're marching hand in hand. 


8. Whatever trials one may meet 

We all will share a part. 
And make her life seem brighter 

For the love from heart to heart 
The key that gives us entrance here 

Unlocks the heaxt, my friend; 
And Kappa. Kappa Gamma is 

Our watch-wora to the end.

Wreathed around with roses red, 

A china cup, of tea.

Stood just within the door; 
The owl page said, " take oflF your wraps 
Upon the second floor." 

8. Minerva stood to welcome us; 
Close to her side there pressed 
The goat that on Parnassus browsed. 
Now lion at the least.

And teas of every hue; 
But this one all ot them surpassed. 
In tones of sweetest blue.

From every throat the loudest praise, 
For blue and blue.

Ancient Greek: 

1. There is beauty in this earth although it's flat, 
There's a system in the falling of the dew, 

In the winding of a brooklet, 
In the shadow of a nooklet. 
There's a power irresistible for you! 

Modern Greek: 

Yes, I've felt that self same power, 

Of your brooklet and your bower, 

In a hanimock with a maiden good and true! 

Ancient Greek: 

2. Our antique heroes are supposed to be 

Just about as fine a lot as they can make, 
But it is my unblessed opinion 
That in all this earth's dominion 

Youthful maiden comes the nearest to the cake. 

Modern Greek: 

Your opinion's all 0. K., sir, 

And I only wish to say, sir. 

That our youthful maiden Kappa takes the cake. 


** If that is so,

Chi's Serenade, 

Air, ''LortUe,'' (CHI CHAPTKB.) 

1. As the silver rays of twilight, 

Darken into even's shade, 
It is sure to set one thinking 

Of an evening serenade; 
It occurred one night last autumn, 

When the stars shone bright and clear, 
And as all was dark and quiet. 

There was naught to interfere. 

2. Kappa girls with fun o'erflowing, 

Just for sport or harmless play. 
Went to see a young men's meeting. 

Which was held not far away; 
But the only way to see it, 

Was to gently take a peep, 
And if any one were watching. 

It would make us feel quite cheap. 

8. So with cool determination 

And much curiosity, 
We resolved upon beholding 

All there was for us to see; 
But our doom was disappointment. 

Not a soul was there to see! 
All our plans had come to nothing; 

Sadder, wiser girls were we !

Air, "In the GkMmino" (OMEGA CHAPTER.) 

1. Once again we're met my sisters; 

One more week has glided past, 
Full of mingled work and pleasure, 

Full of trial and of task 
Here we come for help and comfort, 

Here find sweetest sympathy, 
For we know that each one's welfare 

Is dear to all who wear the Key. 

2. In the future years, my sisters, 

When life's busy paths are tread. 
May the thought of Kappa Gamma 

'Round our hearts much sunshine spread. 
Let the happy school days passing 

Naught but peace and love contain; 
So in memory's golden casket 

Only golden thoughts remain.

Song of the K. K. G, 

Atr, ''Little Bromi Jug^ (OMEGA CHAFTBB) 

1. Men sing of love, they sing of fame, 
Of virtues rare, of deathless name, 
We'll sing you a song of high degree, 
A song of the Kappa fraternity. 

Chorus : 

Ha! ha! ha! don't you see? 
We all belong to K. K. G. 

2. Our colors float on the scented breeze. 
Our "Key" unlocks hidden mysteries; 
True is our purpose, high our aim, 
To win for Kappa a spotless name. 


3. Give ear, Greeks, and barbarians too. 
For what we tell you is every word true; 
The noblest and best of the girls of our land, 
You will find enlisted in Kappa's band. 


4. Years may come and years may go. 
The restless sands of time may flow. 
Still in our hearts there ever will be 
Love for our dear old fraternity.

Kappa Colors. 

Air 'Red, White and Blue:' (OBfEGA CHAPTER 

1. The Kappas united forever, 

Will stand by their colors so true. 
The pride of all Kappa sisters, 

Is the beautiful light and dark blue: 
The colors which bind us together; 

The "Key" which is always in view, 
Leads all Kappa sisters to victory. 

When borne by the Kappas so true. 


When borne by the Kappas so true, 
When borne by the Kappas so true, 
Leads all Kappa sisters to victory. 
When borne by the Kappas so true. 

2. The Kappas though widely scattered, 

Stand one true and loyal band. 
They work to help each other, 

With willing and loving hands: 
When Kappas prove victorious, 

The honor give to the blues. 
The Kappa colors forever. 

Three cheers for the light and dark blue. 


Three cheers for the light and dark blue. 
Three cheers for the light and dark blue. 
The Kappa colors forever. 
Three cheers for the light and dark blue. 


Kappa Song. 

Air, '*EnglUh You Knowr (OMEGA CHAPTER.) 

1. 0! Have you ne'er heard of the great K. K. Q.! [be; 
Its fame must have reached you where'er you might 
For o'er all this broad land from mountain to sea, 
There's naught to compare with the great K. K. G. 

2. In the north and the south, in the east and the west, 
Hundreds of maidens, of knowledge in quest, 

All point to our banner and proudly attest, 
That Kappa's the noblest, the truest, the best. 

3. In the rainbow so bright may be seen every hue. 
All blended together, so lovely to view; 

But mid all the colors, though strange, yet 'tis true, 
There's none that we love as the "light and dark blue." 

4. Let every true Kappa her loyalty bring. 
While all of our cares to the wind we will fling; 
With glad hearts and voices of Kappa we'll sing. 
Until all the heavens with music shall ring.

Welcoming Song. 

Ai,\ "Come, Come, Frc^ from ^crr." (UNCllKDITKD.) 

1. Come, come, come, Kappas all, free irom care. 
Let us here true pleasure share — 

Meeting thus is most rare, 

Come Avhere joy is found. 
Joining in with heart and voice, 
j\Iaking Kappa our own choice. 
One and all, now rojoice. 

Let the laugh go round. 

Tra la la, etc. 

2. Come, come, come, not a sigh, not a tear 
Shall be found in sadness here, 

For we all, with good cheer. 

Greet you now in song. 
In our sisterhood sin(*cre 

N(Av we joy in feeling here. 
That each heart is pure. 

Which doth to us belong. 


3. Then at last, wdien we part, may we feel 
Our improvement has been real, 

That for woe or for weal — 

Still we're bound together. 
Multiplied, true mutual love. 
Brooding o'er us like a dove. 
Chasing olF from above 

Storms in cloudy weather.
