Wow. This is really an annoying feature. You guys have to be patient. It takes time to write an article and cite sources. Miguel 18:44, 29 May 2007 (UTC)
It is not know for certain whether the change to the lyrics of "The Red & the Blue" was official or not. I attended Penn for much of the 1990s and had only heard "classmen" sung until Commencement 1997 or '98. Glee Club Director Bruce "Monty" Montgomery was partial to the chage of lyrics and may have had a hand in changing the word in the program seeing as he directd the music for most Commencement excercises. I remember in particular a discussion bewteen friends of mine in the Penn Band and friends in the Glee Club. The Glee Club members had told us that "Monty" had begun to make them use the altered lyrics. The version sung by the Penn Band had "classmen" at least until 2001, when I was last involved with that orgnization.
