Books [Communications--1st Report]
This one goes to the tune of Put On Your Old Gray Bonnet. The ARTA used to be the initials of the union.
Put on your ARTA bonnet
With the union button on it
And we don't care what the bosses say;
For we'll be in clover when the campaign's over
And we get our Union pay.
Here's one to the tune of Tipperary which was sung when the Union was organizing Western Union.
It's a good thing to join the union.
It's a fine place to go.
It's a good thing to join the union
And march with the CIO
Good by to the speed up,
Hello union pay,
Rally Western Union workers for the ARTA.
Here's another one that was written by somebody who thought the Western Union Company Union ought to have a yell. It's called AWUE College Yell.
Rah! Rah! Rah! Who are we?
We are the members of the AWUE
Ice cream, corned beef, goulash, hash —
Three dots, four dots, two dots, dash!
If you know Morse you'll know what the last line means.
