University of Tennessee Junior College, 1931-32

Going through some paperwork of James H. Moran IV and found an envelope, no writing on the envelope.  However, inside were three folded pieces of paper:

1.  Receipt for the Fall Quarter 1931-32 at The University of Tennessee Junior College, Martin TN.  Jim paid a $20 maintenance fee, $6 Chemistry Lab fee, $1.50 Phys. Ed. Fee and a $4 Student Activity for a total of $31.50.















2.  Typewritten words to a University of Tennessee fight song,
We are for you U.T.
U.T. are we, fighting for victory
right merrily, rah, rah, rah,
We got the pep that gave us the rep,
that made us the best of all: rah, rah, rah.

Here's to Old U of T, never shall we sever,
We pledge our loyalty for ever and ever,
Backing our football team, faltering never,
Cheer and fight with all your might for T.

We are for you U.T.,
U.T. are we, fighting for victory right merrily
Rah, rah, rah, We got the pep that made us the rep that
made us the best of all, rah, rah, rah.

Here's to old U of T never
shall we sever, we pledge our loyalty for ever and ever
backing our football team, falter never, cheer and fight
your might for Tennessee.

3. University of Tennessee Alma Mater
Words and Music by Mrs. John Lamar Meek
On a hallowed hill in Tennessee,
Like beacon shining bright
The stately walls of Old U-T
Rise glorious to the Sight

Refrain:
So here's to you
Old  U of T,
Our Alma Mater true
We pledge in love and harmony
Our loyalty to you!

What torches kindled at that flame
Have passed from hand to hand!
What hearts cemented in that name
Bind land to stranger land!

Refrain

O, ever as we strive to rise
On Life's unresting stream,
Dear Alma mater, may our eyes
Be lifted to that gleam!

Refrain

Of course the best fight song of all is the unofficial song, ROCKY TOP!
Here it is done by the fabulous Osborne Brothers!!
