I Junior Editors Quiz on- SONGS SWEETIE PIE By Nadine Seltzer QUESTION: In the song "Yankee Doodle," what doe* "stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni" mean? ANSWER: Because of its popularity since the Revolutionary war, Yankee Doodle is usually thought to be an American song. Actually, it probably began in Europe in the Middle Ages. In Holland about 1500, harvesters sang a song that began: "Yanker dudel doodle down." Later, the tuno was popular in England. The version in which the phrase "stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni" occurs is an English version. The Cavaliers made up the words in the 1600s to poke fun at Oliver Cromwell when he rode down from Canterbury to take charge of the Puritan forces. "Macaroni" was an insulting word that referred to the young dandies of that day, youths who wore elaborate clothes. The words of the song known in the United States were written by an English army surgeon to make fun of American troops during the French and Indian war. But the American soldiers liked the song and adopted it as their own during the Revolutionary War. American bands played it as the British soldiers marched away after the surrender at Yorktown. FOR YOU TO DO: Yankee Doodle is one of the important songs in American history and you should know the proper words to it. In a song book, find the version that begins: "Father and I went down to camp, along with Captain Goodwin . . ." (The $10 award for this question goes to Carolyn Edwards of Greenville, S. C.
