    Columbia the Gem of the Ocean

    Step into the Wayback machine, we're going back to The Cold War years. It's 1958, Hawaii is still a territory, and it's time for grade school music class. Among the simple songs sung at the time was "Columbia the Gem of the Ocean," a stirring piece that would banish after-school-lunch "yawns and mini-naps." Long after I finished school, this song came up as an "unofficial national anthem" in a TV miniseries celebrating the 1896 Olympics. ("Yankee Doodle" wasn't "dignified enough"!?) Is this a version of "Britannia X"? Oh well, at least it isn't "To Anacreon In Heaven.";)
