v New Terk Viewpoint
New: York, Dec. 30. (By the As
sociated.. Press.) Stock and bond
prices generally close the year at
materially high levels, which in not
only a- reflection of the marked
improvement that has taken plac-.
in business and industry daring the
last 12 months, but also Construed
by conservative ifrew York banking
interests as an indication or still
further- progress In the coming
year.
The year closes with conditions
favorable for a further appreciation
ot commodity and security prices
in the opinion of. tbe financial com
munity, unfavorable and unex
pected developments in the political
and economical Situation abroad
are generally -considered as the
only probably . obstacles to arrest
the improvement in the business
and financial world, which began
in the summer of '1921, and has
continued, With few temporary in
terruptions, until the present time.
The prediction of further busi
ness prosperity is based -on well
known facts. Foremost among-;
these is the easiness of the money
market and the huge sums avati-
from tke Mississippi to Rock river
and from First street to Fprty-
sixth, 47 times. .To give you still
another angle from which to siae

(Special Moline Serr'se.)
George "Arnold, formerly employ
ed by the Moline Body corporation,
is being sought by the police of
Moline, Chicago and Detroit in con
nection with tbe disappearance of
a Moline-girt, whose home Is on
the bluff. Arnold la alleged to
have forced the girl to accompany
him out ot the city While aha waa
under the influence of drugs, said
to have been given her by tbe man.
The mother of the girl spent a
sleepless night .and the telegraph
wires between Moline and Chicago
were kepi busy during the day in
an effort to locate the coaple.
It la tbe belief of the Molina po
lice that Arnold and the girl left
for Chicago on the 4:40 o'clock
train yesterday afternoon. Chicago
detectives, in response to an ap
peal from the Mollne chief of police.
scrutinized every person' who left
that train at Chicago. Neither Ar
nold nor the girl were on the
train.
The nam of Arnold, the mother
ot the girl declares, is only an as
sumed one. She says that the man
is already married, and alleges that
he is a. dope fiend and a deserter
from the army. .
The girl, who Ts 20 years old, has
been receiving, some attention from
Arnold, but did not care for him,
according to the mother.
- Moline polite officials wc&.not
disposed to talk of the case, but
the records show that the local po
lice conferred with Chicago au
fnorities both by telegraph and
long distance telephone.
The police are desirous-of pro
tecting the name of the girl and
also eeem to be under the, impres
sion that Arnold does not know he
is being sought.
