One year he is reported to have made $200,000. only to have lost it a month or so later. Ropke had been ir. the employ of the bank for eighteen years. One day about, two weeks ago a shortage of $6000 was accidentally discovered by one of Ropke's assistants and the mat- | ter was reported to his superiors. This resulted In Ropke's arrest.
