    Squid-Jiggin' Ground became Newfoundland's first local hit record when it sold 15,000 copies in 1943. Art Scammell composed it for a high school project in 1928 when he was 15 years old. The carillon in the Peace Tower in Ottawa played it´╗┐ as Canada welcomed Newfoundland into Confederation on April 1, 1949.
