Tlio Story of tho KpoululH.
Only specials with n weight of woe,
That none but specials cnu ever know,
'Tis n sorrowful tnle, I must tell to you,
It will not mailer much if it isn't all true.
A long time ago, in the uni's green youth,
Before it had e'en cut ils fust wisdom t-mlh,
Two Eds (not co eds) with lips drawn and paled,
Fiist felt the dread force oftiial awful word failed.
The eot'ds east on them most pitiful glances,
Ami two papns at home cut down cash advances;
Dul the regents declared, with a great show of prudence,
'Thai the lads must remain and be special students."
The two bravely met their hard cruel fnte,
And solaced themselves by scratching the slate.
They were granted two rights not given to all
To skip class when they wished, and to talk in the hall.
I will not recount tin whole evolution,
For fear of a course of quick execution:
Dili it was those two boys that bequeath us such woes,
And I think it but right, a few here to expose.
The faculty never has bought us a yell,
(A Cynic lemaiks ihet perhaps its as well,)
The steward hasn't time to compose us a song,
We could sing it at'sight if the metre wasn't Jong.
We belong to no class. have r.o peaceful class meetings
Where Gentile and Jew cxehnngc such fiien'dly greetings
We have no Latin yell; still that docs not bore us,
For we're permitted to join in the "U. N. I." chorus.
The seniois look on us with top-lofty pride,
For we'll get no sheen's skin with blue ribbon tied.
All the icst except those in whose classes we are,
O pine that our knowledge won't reach very far.
The profs all deplore our condition so sad,
Yet declare that we've been the best students they've hod
l'or they know that no special e'er fail to pass,
And though 'tis our right, we never skip, class.
The regents have hopes of improving the rest,
By conforming their rights to those we've possessed;
tor all will be specials, deny it who can,
When the University the Michigan plan.
