Ironically, he was appointed by » Democrat—Gov. if Herbert. K. Lehman. ' He was chosen for the job of apecial prosecutor in June, 1935. when a grand jury revolted against a Tammany district attorney. He , already had some experience in I criminal prosecution as assistant i and subsequently U. S. attorney for I the Southern District of New York from 1931 lo 1933. During that time he obtained the conviction of I gangster Jack (Less) Diamond and | beer baron Waxey Gordon. | „.„<..,. „,.„. .„ "I learned that those who said . * '",.. ',. u ,_. the mobs ruled America were not tar from wrong." Dewey said after the Lehman appointment. "The law had abdicated, failing to offer protection to citizens who wished to tell the, truth." With bulldog determination and a fearlessness of threats from underworld strong-arm men. Dewey moved in on the New York mobs. He broadcast a public appeal for all citizens to tell what they knew of racket conditions and a flood of facts poured in.

Then he itcpiwd out on a first floor balcony, apologized to them and explained why IK THIS late: "I was delayed because I finally got through a long-distance call to my mother." The gray-haired, little old larti who had waited (or that call—Mrs George Dewey, of OWCMSO, Mich.— was "exceedingly happy and grate fui" that her boy had been noinl naleri for (lie presidency. I When Dewey asked the crowd I! they forgave him now for being lat«, he received a thutuleving "yes" in reply. Then !i« grew serious. He told them a lew things he would do if the voter* put him in the White House. He would, lie suid. establish » State Department which would not ''vacillate bet-vreen appeasement one day and Ihunder the next." "To the establishment of jicaca in the world." Dc'«y said.

He had stayed in his hotel while the roll was called on the first two convention ballots during the afternoon. Then he had received word that his op- IJonents for the nomination were withdrawing, one by one. from the race. A rainbow arched across the tio- rison just before he got word that he was assured of the nomination. Ueuey and Mrs. Dewey drove to Convention Hall to receive a mighty ovation as they were escorted lo the platform. The nominee made his acceptance speech then hurried back to his hotel. Mrs. Dewey retired saoiv after, wards. For Dewey, there were long hours of conferences ahead, conferences that lasted well toward dawn. It was a cloudy dawn. But, iov him, H was a beautiful morning.
