Dr. Osterlin's 80th Birthday
     FINDLAY, O., Oct. 5 - [Special] - Dr. Charles Osterlin, the man who first advanced the theory that natural gas existed in immense quantities beneath this city, and through whose efforts the Findlay natural gas company was organized, celebrated the 80th anniversary of his birth today.  The discovery of natural gas at this point was also the first step taken in the development of the northwestern Ohio oil field.  Dr. Osterlin is well-preserved for a man of his years and expects to live to see his fondest dreams of Findlay's future prosperity fulfilled.
