DR. E. C. SCHROE~DER DIES

A brilliant career in the field of veterinary medicine and pathology was ended
with t~he death of Dr. Ernest C. Behroeder, Januaryv 24, at Bethesda, Md.,
where he was superintendent of the experiment station of the bureau. During
his 40 years of public service Doctor Schroeder gained an international reputa-
tion as a research worker and made important contributions to the knowledge
of animal diseases.
He was born in Baltimore, Md., April 3, 1865, and after an elementary educa-
tion studied scientific agriculture at the Maryland Agricultural College. Later
he received the degree of M. D. V. from Harvrard College in 1887. In the same
year Doctor Schroeder accepted an appointment in the Bureau of Animal In-
dustryv, then a new organization engaged, among other activities, in the sup-
pression of contagious pleuropneumonia of cattle. In 1890 he was' transferred
to the laboratory of pathology and bacteriology, and in 1894 became superin-

recognisedd for knportant contributions in the study of animal-disease problems.
Be~l~sides bettig an uniusually thorough and resourceful inv-est~igator whose
halscommanded wide attention, Doctor Schroeder was likewise a clear and
fi;orcefltd writer and speaker. Animal diseases which have received particular
study at t(he experiment station were tuberculosis, contagious abortion, anthrax,
dourine, tetanus, tick fever, and vesicular st.omatitis. Doctor Schroeder was also
ai skilled, investigator of the purity and potency of biological products used in
vetermaryj m~edwine.

5 ~DEMODECTIC MANGE REPORTS
i Referring to a circular notice entitled Directions for Det~ecting Demodectic
Mlange in Livestock," dated December, 1926, and requesting reports from bureau
stations, the need for regular reports no longer exists.
Inspectors in charge, therefore, may discontinue their mont.hly statements on
the occurrence and extent of this parasitic disease in animals coming under their
supervision. From the reports already received the bureau has derived valuable
information on the geographical and seasonal distribution of demodeetic mange.
Though this notice reliev~es inspectors of further regular reports, the bureau
welcomes any information or data, relative to this disease, that inspectors are
able to obtain during the regular course of their work. It is requested, therefore,
that any unusual conditions or observations made, or any increase or decrease in
prevalence, be reported promptly.

From the reports already received the bureau has derived valuableinformation on the geographical and seasonal distribution of demodectic mange. Though this notice relieves inspectors of further regular reports, the bureauwelcomes any information or data, relative to this disease, that inspectors areable to obtain during the regular course of their work. It is requested, therefore,that any unusual conditions or observations made, or any increase or decrease inprevalence, be reported promptly.NEW PUBLICATIONS OF THE BUREAU[The bureau keeps no mailing list for sending publications to individual employees, but sends copies toofficers in charge of stations and offices.
