pathic Hospital,
D r. Mohler

era! years.
As administrator, veterinarian
and pathologist, he was known
throughout the world for his work
in Federal meat inspection and
suppression of bovine tuberculosis
and cattle tick fever. He is cred
ited with saving this country’s
livestock industry by detecting the
existence of foot and mouth dis
ease in some apparently healthy
cattle shipped to the United
States. He directed the first cam-'
paign against this scourge in 1902,
as well as subsequent outbreaks.
Sponsored Disease Control.
Dr. Mohler was instrumental in
bringing about improvement in
domestic animals by genetic re
search and application of scien
tific knowledge to practical stock
breeding. Through his encourage
ment, the National Poultry Im
provement Plan was establsihed,
involving breeding and disease
control features.
Meat inspection became highly
developed under his supervision.
He helped set in motion the rigid
system of inspection that has led
consumers to take for granted the
wholesomeness of United States
inspected meat. The Nation’s
tremendous production of hogs
is possible largely through his
efforts in development of a anti
hog cholera serum.
Native of Philadelphia.
Dr. -Mohler was born in Phila
delphia and graduated from Tem
ple University and the University
of Pennsylvania. He obtained a
medical degree from Marquette
University and received honorary
doctor of science degrees from
University of Maryland and Iowa
State College.

reau of Animal Industry as an
assistant inspector. He became
chief of the bureau in 1917.
Dr. Mohler had served as presi
dent of both the American Vet
erinary Medical Association and
the United States Livestock Sani
tary Association. In 1934 he was
elected president of the 12th In
ternational Veterinary Congress.
He was identified with various
Government health boards and
belonged to the British Royal
Academy of Medicine.

Oswin Rowbofham,
Attorney for Mine
Interests in West
Oswin C. Rowbotham, an at
torney whose clients included
Western mining Interests, died
yesterday after a long illness at
his home, 2006 Columbia road
N.W. He was 66.
Born in England, Mr. Row
botham started his legal career in
Colorado. His father and mother,
John Crosby and Margaret Horax
Rowbotham had gone to Colorado
where they bought a large ranch
before the turn of the century,
leaving their children to be edu
cated at Oxford and Cambridge.
Oswin Rowbotham attended
King Edwards’ and St. Marks’
Schools and read law at Oxford
under Sir Litchfield Meeks.
Was County Official.
He went to Colorado about 1912
and became an assistant district
attorney for a county. His father
was well-aquainted with the min
ing figures of the day. He loaned
Thomas Walsh $2,000 at the time
the miner—the father of the late
Mrs. Evalyn Walsh McLean —
was seeking a stake for the work
that led to the discovery of gold
in the Camp Bird mine. The fam
ily story is that Mr. Walsh offered
^ share in the mine to the English
rancher but that the latter re
fused it, saying the transaction
was merely a loan.
After World War I, Oswin Row
botham served under Pood Ad
ministrator Herbert Hoover as
head of the office in the St. Louis
district. Since then he had been
in private law practice in Chicago.
New' York and Washington. He
had an office in the Munsey build
ing for 15 years.
List of Survivors.
He is survived by his widow, Mrs.
Ethel C. Rowbotham, and two
step-daughters, Mrs. Robert L.
Stubbs of Atlantic Beach. Fla.,
and Miss Barbara Carrington
Jones, who lives at the Columbia
road address. He is also survived
by a son by a previous marriage,
William Lowell Rowbotham of
Chicago, four grandchildren and
two brothers. Dr. Arnold Row

Glenwood Springs, Colo.

on new stock was taken from
surplus. It amounted to $10 a
share on old stock and, in efTect,
returned to the group half of its
original investment in the former
North American Co. holdings.
Almost Fully Returned.
However, the new owners also
received regular dividends In 1949,
1950 and 1951, amounting to
$7.50 a share on old stock, and
yesterday’s quarterly of 35 cents
was equivalent to $1.40 on old
stock. Therefore, their return
on the shares they bought for $20
each will amount to $18 90. count
ing both the special and the regu
lar declared yesterday.
The Wolfson group also has a
paper profit of around $4,0 mil
linn in the shares as a result of
market appreciation since it took
control, Mr, Wolfson reported
recently that the group held lit
per cent of the total of 000,oon
hew shares, or around 400,000,
The shares closed yesterday on
ft! eu|Jb 8*ehatt*e »ft
•1ft <» Mime, This is equivalent to
400 a share oil the old stock,
Probably a knowledge of what
a gold mine the company has
proven for the Wolfson group hss
been a major factor In persistent
pnblic criticism of company pol
icies. pm another Iras been tha
(eduction In what tha company
has termed unprofitable or un
economic services, both in tha
District and in nearby Maryland.
The company’s contention that
It has not been allowed a fair
return on the property wea
summed up In measured worde by
Mr, Broadwater on Tuesday, In
his speech that caught both offi
cial and civic leaders unawares.
Mr. Broadwater demanded that
the company be allowed a return
on its rate base of at least 7>/a
per cent and warned that other
wise Washington might as well
prepare for municipal ownership.
