sored by communities and are in the
process of construction or will be in
the next few days are: Detroit, Boyne
City, Mackinac Island, H a r b o r
Springs, Lake Michigamme (Mar-
quette County), Indian Lake (School-
craft County), Chicagoan Lake
(Iron County),Marquette, Menomi-
nee, Kalamazoo (Austin Lake)
Cliarlevoix and Muskegon. Other
sites are being selected and in a few
months the State will be well pro-
vided with landing facilities for all
types of seaplanes
The fine response of Michigan
communities indicates that by next
spring there will be a chain of sea-
plane bases dotting the entire state,
Mr. Kaye stated. Their value to
the Michigan tourist business is one
of the selling points of these sea-
plane bases, since many airplane
owriers in the East will be attracted
to Michigan resort towns now that
adequate landing facilities are to be
provided, he added.
It is through projects like these
that the NYA of Michigan has assist-
ed ver 75,000 needy youths in the
state during the last four years.

Library Gains
Documents Of
Detroit 1stor
Books And Letter Donated
To Clements Library
Show City'sfirst Years
To aid in tracing the history of
Detroit in documents, the William L.
Clements Library has acquired two
books and a letter which give ac-
counts of* certain periods in Detroit's
early years.
Donated to the library by Mr. Wil-
liam' Robertson Coe, the papers pre-
sent eye-witness accounts of the early
settlements. The first book, the jour-
nal of Captain Thomas Morris, tells
of a meeting with the Indian chief
Pontiac.
The original manuscript of this is
owned by the library, but the printed
edition is also very rare. The letter,
written by Major General Anthony
Wayne, is the first official announce-
ment of the fact that the United
States now has possession of the city
of Detroit.
"A PAdestrious Tour, of Four Thou-
sand Miles, through the Western
States and Territories, during the
Winter and Spring of 1818," a book
written by an early traveler, con-
tains probably the first mention of
the University of Michigan in a pub-
lication outside the state. It includes
the observations of the writer, one
Estwick Evans, on the'city of Detroit
and the surrounding territory.

Presidential Candidate Tom Dewed
Is Michi an Typical Student'. Of '23

By LEONARD SCHLEIDER
(Third of a series.)
Republican Party publicists will
find support for their campaign
to present" Presidential , ossibility
Thomas Edmund Dewey, '23, and
Hon.'37LL.M. as a "typical Ameri-
'cai" in the University's Alumni Cat-
alog Office.
For there are preserved the New
York County District Attorney's
"typical student" gades for his 'three
undergraduate years in the literary
college-nine A's, 12 B's }and eight
C's. .
The future racket-buster majored
in music and then entered combined
curr'iculum to study law. In' 1923 he
transferred to Columbia University
Law School and received his law 'de-
gree two years later.
In Ann Arbor, Dewey was a repor-
ter and telegraph'editor of The Daily
and sang inthe University Glee Club.
A baritone, he took part in the Union
Opera and was president of Pi Mu

of crime investigating in 1930 when
United States District Attorney
George Medalie appointed Dewey his
chief, ssitsdht. In tiis'_job, Dewey
prosecuted Waxey Gordon, a notori-
ous gangster.
His work came to the attention of
New York's governor Lehman who,
in 1935, at the request of a "runaway"
Grand' J r' a poihted' DeWey as a
special New York County District
Attorney.
'New York City has five counties,
each "with 'a district' attorney,"'but
New York County which covers Man-
hattan had' "always' been a happy-
hunting-ground for the underworld.
Dewey, in rapid order, smashed vice-
overlord 'Charles Luciano, sent other
gangsters into hiding and freed the
police from Tammany domination,
He was elected regular district'at-
torney in 1937 on Mayor.La Guardia's
Republican-Fusion-American Labor
ticket;'the first non-Tammany dis-
trict attorney to gain office since
1915. After a mistrial, Dewey con-
victed Tammany leader Jimmy Hines
on charges of helping "Dutch"
Schultz operate Harlem's lottery and
beer rackets
Last year, Dewey ran for governor
against Herbert Lehman 'but was de-
feated by the narrow margin of 67,-
000 votes. This show of power is
said to have started him on the
White House trail.

THOMAS DEWEY, '23
Alpha, honorary musical fraternity
Son of the editor of the Owosso"
'imes, and distant relative of the
Admiral who fought in Manila Bay,
Tom Dewey ranks today as one of
the strongest Republican hopefuls.
Although some policical observers say
the war has diminished his chances,
the 37 year old "progressive" Republi-
can has led all public opinion sur-
veys for many months.
He was initiated into the business

Prof. Jean Paul Slusser was select-
ed to succeed Prof.' Emil Lorch on
the executive committee of the Cob
lege of Architecture.
Prof. Ransom S. Hawley was desig-
nated acting chairman of the Depart-
ment of Mechanical Engineering dur-
ing the sabbatical leave of Prof'J. F.
Emswiler'during the first semester,
1939-1940.
A new member of the sociology de-
partment will be Walter C. Reckless,
appointed yesterday to become a
member of the University faculty be-
ginning second semester. Professor
Reckless is a member of the Vander-
bilt University faculty at the present
time.
Sabbatical leaves were granted to
Prof. Walter E. Lay of the mechani-
cal engineering department, and to
Prof. Ralph W. Aigler, of the law de-
partment for the second semester.
The sabbatical leave of Prof. Mar-
garet E. Tracy, of the administration
department was cancelled.
The meeting was almost completely
devoted to a consideration of routine
business, acceptance of financial re-
ports, and appointment of officers.
The next regular meeting of the
Board of Regents will be held Sat-
urday, Nov: 11, at 10:30 a.m.
