The Rhyme of the Unions. '
Before the Unions came to view,
The Nebraska State was all askew,
And things were looking mighty blue,
To all the students of the U
nivorsity of Nebraska.
Years ago our friends were few,
And, I confess, wo hardly know, '
Four was composed of two and two,
When wo first entered at the U
nivcrsity of Nebraskar
Great Morse, the king of wire and screw,
Master mechanic of this crew,
Became a "Union" so wo grew,
After we started at the U
niversity of Nebraska.
There's Anna A. and Charley Ku-hlman-Wilkinson
and Shivoly too,
Levers and hub of S'ciety "U,"
Who help to make the glorious U
niversity of Nebraska.
Loyal Juniors Plowhead, Eva Modi, (nu)
Such lighters now are few,
Who make the earth seem black and blue,
For the "barbarian-frats" at U
niversity of Nebraska.
Behold Jim Searson onco anow,
As rushing now his thesis through,
I guess I liko don't you,
To see him back horo at the U
nivorsity of Nebraska.
And Boostrom, Storvo and Miss Chase too,
Wo hardly can accept adieu,
But have to encore all way through,
When they are singing at the U
niversity of Nebraska.
When Maxwoll-Magulro oratory pursue,
And garlands all about them strew,
The sun becomes a bloody hue,
In jealousy of the great U
nivorsity of Nebraska.
To crown the wholo with ample queue,
Brown, Blandln, McCuno for Klocu, (tlon)
As members of tho "white and blue,"
Rcclto tho pleasures of tho U
nivorsity of Nebraska.
In futuro years when onco I viow,
Tho days gone past for mo and you,
I'll think of thosu companions true,
Who aided mo while at tho U
niversity of Nebraska.
