Rites Set Tomorrow
For Robert L. Owen,
Former U. S. Senator
Robert Latham Owen, 91, who
as a United States Senator from
Oklahoma played an important part
in the drafting of the Federal Re
serve and Farm Loan Acts, died
yesterday at Emergency Hospital
after an illness of several weeks.
He underwent an operation during
the last week, relatives said.
Funeral services will be held at
2:30 p.m. tomorrow at Gawler’s
Chapel, 1750 Pennsylvania avenue
N.W. Burial will be in Lynchburg,
Va.
Mr. Owen was one of the two Sen
ators to represent Oklahoma in the
United States Senate when the State
was admitted to the Union in 1907.
He served for three-successive terms.
from 1907 to 1925. The former Sen
ator played a prominent part in the
campaign for woman suffrage.
Born in Lynchburg.
Born February 2, 1856. at Lynch
burg. of Scotch-Irish and Indian
ancestry, Mr. Owen was educated
in Lynchburg, in Baltimore and at
Washington and Lee University.
After completing his education he
went to the Indian Territory as a
teacher in the Cherokee Orphan
Asylum and later was made princi
pal of the institution. In 1890 he
launched the First National Bank
of Muskogee and for 10 years was
the bank’s vice president.
Then came a period of law prac
tice and in 1892, Mr. Owen entered
politics by organizing the Democrats
of the territory.
In 1907, the statehood year, every
Democrat in both houses of the
legislature voted to send him to the
United States Senate. He was re
elected in 1912 and in 1918 with in
creased majorities. Made chairman
of the Senate Committee of Bank
ing and Currency in 1913, Senator
Owen in that position became one
of the framers of the Federal Re
serve Act. The late Senator Carter
Glass of Virginia was another lead
er in the Federal Reserve Bank
creation.
After his retirement from the
Senate, Senator Owen continued
to live at the Hotel 2400 Sixteenth
street N.W. and practiced law for
some years.
Knew Six Languages.
Mr. Owen was president of the
World Language Foundation and
worked for several years on the cre
ation of a global alphabet. It con
sisted of 37 symbols representing
various phonetic sounds. The for
mer Senator had a typewriter built
to write in this alphabet and had
also written a "Spanish-English
Phrase Book” making use of the
alphabet. He knew more than six
languages.
The former Senator was president
emritus of the National Popular
Government League, a life member
of the Elks and a 32nd degree
Mason.
His father, Robert Latham Owen,
sr., was at one time president of
Vlrnrinio anH TnnnoccPP P.ftilrnflri
and a member of the Virginia State
Senate.
Mr. Owen’s wife. Mrs. Daisy Hes
ter Owen, died in 1946. They were
married in 1889.
Surviving is a daughter. Miss
Dorothea Whittemore and a grand
son, Robert L. Owen, III.

Dollar 'Invested'
Fifty Years Ago
Now Worth Two
ly Hi* Associated Press
SALT LAKE CITY, July 19 —
Fifty years ago John H. Udall’s
father told him "If you put a dollar
in the bapk and keep it until you’re
as old as Methuselah you’ll be a
rich man.” So John planked down
one dollar in a savings account with
the Zion Savings Bank and Trust
Co.
Now Mr. Udall, former Mayor of
Phoenix, wants his dollar—plus 50
years’ interest.
The total. W. T. Patrick, assistant
cashier at the bank, said today will
hardly be enough to support Mr.
Udall in luxury.
“It won’t be much more than $2,”
he predicted.
“Even at the old rate of 4 per cent
interest it would have taken 25 years
for the dollar to have doubled itself,
and besides, about 20 years ago
banks stopped paying interest on
amounts less than $5.

CAB Calls for Report
On DC-4 Trips Before
Maryland Disaster
By th« Associated Press
NEW YORK, July 19.—Eastern
Air Lines was requested today to
furnish the Civil Aeronautics Board
with a report “in complete detail on
all flights flown” during a stipulated
period by the DC-4 liner which
crashed with a loss of 53 lives last
May 30 near Bainbridge, Md.
The request brought to a
temporary close a three-day hearing
held in an attempt to determine the
cause of the accident.
The request was made to Sidney
L. Shannon, vice president in
charge of EAL operations,'by Robert
W. Chrisp, chief of the CAB hear
nig anu icports section ana presid
ing officer at the inquiry, after Mr.
Shannon said a record of pilots'
complaints of vibration “did not
show the whole story.”
Vibration Reported.
The complaints, entered in the
plane's log book, described vibration
of the plane as from “excessive” to
“terrific” over a period from March
24 to April 22. Corrective action
reported by company technicians
attributed the vibration to the nose
wheel.
“Thirteen pilots reported vibra
tion and 14 pilots reported no vibra
tion in their reports, indicating that
corrective action had been taken
and the thing was all right,” Mr.
Shannon said.
• “Too much significance has been
placed on the vibration of the nose
wheel,” Mr. Shannon continued.
“Practically any nose wheel on any
airplane will cause some vibration."
Mr. Chrisp requested Mr. Shan
non to submit the more detailed re
port to the CAB at Washington and
said earlier reports of vibration will
be removed from the records in
favor of the full report.
Quizzed About Compliance.
Earlier in the day, S. Van Meen
sel, air carrier maintenance inspec
tor for the Civil Aeronautics Ad
ministrator, who submitted the rec
ord of pilots’ complaints ftf zibration,
was asked if he was having difficulty
in getting Eastern Air Lines to
“comply with the regulations.”
‘ That’s hard to answer,” Mr. Van
Meensel replied.
His interrogator, William K. An
drews, assistant chief of the CAB
accident investigation division, then
asked:
“I realize that, but what X mean
is, is there a tendency by Eastern
Air Lines to take short cuts?”
inspection maintenance is per
formed on these aircraft as fully as
possible considering the time they
are scheduled into their base,'' the
witness replied.
Tells of Corrective Actions.
Ambrose L. Chabot, superintendent
of maintenance for the airline, read
into the record a series of corrective
actions taken as a result of the
pilots’ complaints of vibration, and
said that they had been reported to
the CAA.
He added that the record of com
plaints was “characteristic of other
ships.1'
C. R. Strand, chief of the struc
tures division of Douglas Aircraft
Co., manufacturers of the crashed
plane, told the board he had no
theory as to the cause of the acci
ient and that his company was still
investigating.
“We will continue to use every fa
cility until we reach an understand
ing as to the cause of this crash,”
Mr. Strand said.
Everett Chapman, an engineer for
the Aviation Underwriters’ Associa
tion, who participated in the initial
investigation at the scene of the
crash, said he believed “an early
failure” which led to the crash was
concerned with the right elevator of
the craft.
Results of calculations and tests
on another DC-4 were submitted by
Richard B. Rhode, aeronautical en
gineer for the National Advisory
Committee for Aeronautics, in an
effort to aid the CAB in arriving at
a finding.
