Former Rumors as to Inability to
Deoide on Song Based on Mis
understandingChorus Will
Sing It at Convocation.
The matter of choosing a uni
versity song is, again to come bo
fore the public. At convocation
this moaning the chorus will sing.
"Our Nebraska," the song tobo
tricd out before the university
publir. Some slight? misunderstanding
has arisen with regards to tho
university song Contest. It was
due to this that the, report was
circulated some time ago that the
committee selected to choose a
university song had found no
song worthy of selection.
The committee, it is true, did
not feel ready to declare arbi
trarily that any one of 'thesongs
submitted to them should, bpj the
official song of the school orall
time. They did, however, find
one oug so good that the mem
here agreed it, was worth putting
before the school, even at a great
deal of pains, it was at first
thought that the song could not
be so "trfed out" until next fall,
hence the matter was considered
closed for the tinie being. "'By
quick Work, however, the song
has been ' published, and Mrs.
Raymond has drilled the chorus
in it. Tt will bo sung and copies
will bo on sale in a day or two
at different places in the city It
is hoped that a largo attendance
will be at convocation to' pass
judgment on the song, r
As submitted to the committee
the words of the .song follow :
Our Nebraska.
On gold of tho sun, and gold of
the corn,
And gold of the golden' rod,
Nebraska stands, our college 'dear,
Queen of her prairies, broad..

And .high in "tho fight for' truth
