A student-written satire on stu-
dent writing in 1848 is one of the
items included in an exhibit on
the history of printing in Michigan
before 1850, now on display in the
The satire is a pamphlet pub-
lished by the Junior class of 1848
as a take-off on a scholarly publi-
cation put out annually by the
Junior class at that time to dis-
play student talents.
Also included in the exhibit is
one of six known copies of a
French book, "The Penitent Soul,"
published in 1809. The book was
printed on the press of Father
Gabriel Richard, one of the Uni-
versity's founders. It was the third
book published in the state.
The first issue of the Democratic
Free Press, forerunner of the pres-
ent Detroit Free Press, dated May
5, 1831, may be seen.
Another item in the Michigan
Historical Collections exhibit is a
report on Ann Arbor's exclusive
schools, written by a Miss Clark
and printed in 1850. An auction
poster printed in 1837 which ad-
vertises 1,000 village lots for sale
is also included.

First Published in 1841.
Volume one, number one of the-
"Signal" appeared April 28, 1841.k1
It was published by the then sixa
year-old Michigan State Anti-\
Slavery Society, an organization
which drew membership from a
dozen towns in southeastern Mich-
Carrying the slogan "The in-
violability of human rights is the
only security to public liberty,"
- plus an apology for "any want
of varied or recent news due to the
hurry and bustle attendant on
commencing operations" - the
paper served a twofold function
while the national abolitionist
movement was getting under way:
it concentrated anti-slave voting
and expressed the intense, diverse
feelings of the country's growing
Sarsaparilla and Court' Plaster
The first edition's four tabloid-
sized pages (the paper' later grew
to seven columns) are all printed
in the manner of the classified
section of a large paper of today-
with no variations in type and no
headlines. Important news stories,
including speeches on slavery by
Henry Clay and Daniel Webster,
are intimately close to sarsaparilla,
pill and court plaster ads. Under
"general intelligence" is an ad-
dress by President Tyler, who,
with the death of Harrison, had
just become the first vice-presi-
dent to become president under
the constitutional provision.
An "extraordinary temperance
meeting," where an "intoxicated
young man," pledging abstinence,
is followed by "more than a hun-
dred people, a large number of
whom were- intemperate persons,"
is described on page three. The
."unaffected tears that were flow-
ing" added to the occasion.
Elsewhere in this first paper
are a number of inspired, emo-
tion-ridden letters from subscrib-
