Six Societies
Founder's Birth
Former Gov. Osborne And
Prof. Aiton To Address
Meeting In Detroit
The 172nd anniversary of the birth
of Father Gabriel Richard, who wa
one of the founders of the University
and who, with the Rev. John Mon
teith comprised its first faculty wil
be honored by a dinner to be held
tomorrow in Detroit at the Fort Shel
by Hotel.
Chase S. Osborn, former governor
of Michigan, and Prof. Arthur S
Aiton of the history department have
been secured as speakers for the din-
ner which is being held under the
joint sponsorship of the Detroit His-
torical Society, the Essex County
Historical Society, the Societe de St
Jean Baptiste, the Catholic Evidence
Guild, the Star Chamber and the
Club La Salle.
Father Richard, who was one of
the most brilliant figures in Detroit's
early history, was born on Oct. 15,
1764 and was active in the affairs of
the then undeveloped territory com-
prising this section of the country.
At one time he was a territorial dele-
gate to Congress and brought much
attention to the needs of the terri-
tory. His activities were responsible
for the first appropriation for a
much-needed turnpike from Detroit'
to Chicago.
Although the records indicate that
he had no part in writing the act
under which the University was es-
tablished, in 1817 he and the Rev.
Monteith were approached before
the act was passed and asked to take
charge. At its founding, Father
Richard was made vice-president and
the Rev. Monteith the first presi-
dent. They acted as the whole fac-
ulty and between them held 13 pro-

Smith himself identified Clarence
Ernest as one of two men who calledj
at his home and Basom as the onek
who blindfolded him and bound his
hands in an automobile. He said he
recognized the voice of Ray Ernest as
being one that asked him why he had
failed to attend Legion meetings.
Smith related that a "jury" found
him guilty of not attending meet-
ings, "then they took my clothes and
gave me six lashes." He said he later
was driven some distance from his
house and let out of a car with the
warning to "look straight ahead or
there will be bullets flying."
Mrs. Smith followed her husband
to the stand and said that Clarence
Ernest pushed Smith into a car and
drove away. She came to Jackson tol
notify the sheriff, she testified, and
upon returning home found her hus-
band in bed in "pain and misery."
Paul Marks of Napoleon testified
he attended a meeting at the home
of Dite Hawley where Smith was
lashed, saw a car leave the meeting
and return later, and saw Ray Ernest
and Basom there.
