Abstract: Early in the fifties, A. J. Lohwater proved that if $ f(z)$ is analytic in $ \vert z\vert < 1$ and has the radial limit 0 almost everywhere on $ \vert z\vert = 1$, then every complex number $ \zeta $ is an asymptotic value of $ f(z)$ provided the $ \zeta $-points satisfy the following Blaschke condition: $ \sum _{k = 1}^\infty (1 - \vert{z_k}\vert) < \infty $, where $ f({z_k}) = \zeta $, $ k = 1\,,2, \ldots $. We may, therefore, ask under the hypothesis on $ f(z)$ how many complex numbers $ \zeta $ are there whose $ \zeta $-points can satisfy the Blaschke condition. We show that there is at most one such number and this one number phenomenon can actually occur if the number is zero.
