the tray that holds my dictionary catalogue. It
is the only redeeming feature of that dictionary
catalogue. Long may those colors wave !
But when I heard that vandal hands wore
about to destroy the University yell, my soul, as
well as that of every other 'Sger, was fairly rent in
twain. We feel a parental pride in that yell, for
'twas an 'Sger who gave it to the University. 0
vandal, harm it not !
During the four years that 1 have been trying
to warm up the cold world I have had no occasion
to regret that my college days were spent in the
U. of N. rather than elsewhere. The longer 1
stay in the east the more I appreciate the educa
tional opportunities of the west, and of Lincoln,
in particular. There is such a magnificent;;'"
along these lines for the west. Eastern people
do not realize this. They have so long been in
the habit of thinking that a high grade of civiliza
tion is impossible in the west. 1 think they will
learn a good deal about us at Chicago. Certain
ly, we are worth their investigation. We have
the advantage of them in that we have fewer tra
ditions to throw off.
1 have been unable to get away from cyclones,
blizzards and Indians. Just when I feel assured
that I have properly instructed the last person in
New York that doesn't know, as to the absence
of these terrible things in the west, 1 meet some
body who wants to know about these things.
Such eprodes make me think of the maps the
Ancients used to make, and the unique monsters
they pictured in the lands and seas unknown to
them. People are quite incredulous when 1 as
sure them that 1 never was in the track of but one
cyclone, and that was at Lawrence, Mass. Some
of the most intelligent people 1 have met seem to
think Mr. Lo is a proud, painted creature who
parades about with a tomahawk seeking whom
he may devour. Mine eyes have never rested on
Mich a sight. You all know too well the degen
erate state of the once noble red man. The only
reservation l'was ever on is in the empire state. 1
have been asked about cowboys. I never saw
one, unless a certain student in the University
who came from a ranch in the western part of the
state could be called one. 1 begin to think my
education has been sadly neglected.
The students and alumni will be pleased to
know that the'library people here hold Chancellor
Canfield in high esteem.
Let ine close by affirming once more my un
swerving allegiance to the University and the wild,
Then here's to the west, the wide, wild west,
Where mind and soul are free;
What tho' cowboys roam and the cyclone's at
Tis the place of all places for me.
