Plaques Recovered: Patrolman Richard Anderson and Detective Lt. Eugene Staudenmaier examine two metal plaques recovered yesterday from a campus area building which is being remodeled. The smaller plaque has been missing for some time from the Broadway bridge where it marked the site where the Potawatomi "and other Indian tribes" crossed the Huron River. It also was a marker for the location of the old Washtenaw Hotel. The larger plaque which weights more than 200 pounds notes that the Society of Sigma XI purchased the tablet in 1936 for the 50th anniversary of the founding of the society at Cornell University. Police do not know where the large plaque belongs.
