PROHiilJEAD STIRS Woodcock's Efforts to Find Raymond Robins Scored by Rep. Tinkham (United Prcns Leaned Wire) WASHINGTON, Jon. 21.—The prohibition bureau's nation-wide search 'or the missing Raymond Robbins, prohibition leader, was criticized caustically at hearings before the rlouse appropriations committee, records mado public today disclosed. Robins, friend of President Hoover, disappeared last September while on ils way to a White House luncheon. le was discovered after the November ilectlon In the mountains of North Carolina. Doctors diagnosed his case as amnesia. Director of Prohibition Amos W. W. Woodcock defended the search conducted by his bureau when questioned by Representative Tinkham, Republican, Mussachuetts, at hearings on the lustlce department's supply bill. Tinkham suggested that by pursuing :he course It had In the Roblns'cnso the bureau might easily become a "bureau for the discovery of disappearing prohibitionists." Woodcock argued that the search was justified because It had been reported that Robins had been kidnaped y bootleggers. "Is there any authority at law which gives you tho right to expend money when a prohibitionist disappears? Tinkham demanded. « "No, sir; not at all," Woodcock an- iwered. "A search for Robins could be justified only as on a basis of ferreting out violations ol the national prohibition act."

Mercantile Experts Consider Favorable Influences in Ascendant (Associated Press Leaned Wire) NEW YORK, Jon. 21.— While noting ho continuance of certain adverse actors, tho weekly mercantile reviews oday wore In agreement that favor- vble trade Influences wore In the ascendance. Hradstreet's commented that on the leblt side were such unfavorable Items as an increase In bank failures, dls- ncllnatlon of the security market to irenk out of Us narrow trading range, und the failure of Congress to take teps toward balancing the budget. [•his agency, however, viewed developments of the past week as construc- Ivo on balance. "B£ all odds," It asserted, "the most significant development Is the sharply declining trend In cold storage holdups of frozen and cured moata and dairy products. Butter stocks are 68 per cent below tho five-year average and eggs on hand are less than half the amount In cold storage a year ago." Dun's said that "low Inventories, with potential markets for spring commitments, and mare stability Ip the prices of commodities have strengthened the prospect for Im. proved business conditions during the second quarter." "While tho weekly reports covering :rndo conditions In various parts of :he country are marked- by conserva- Llsm," It added, "they enumerate more "actors than during tho first two weeks of the month calculated to contribute to progressive advancement.

The weekly report of freight car oadlngs, showing a fair seasonal gain, was too closely In keeping with ex- lectatlons to, affect the market. Veek-ond business news generally ailed to shed any new light on the outlook, and market still adhered to watchful waiting attitude. While steel production has had a fair seasonal upturn from the low levels of he holiday period, some reports Indicated the gain may be held with some difficulty In thn next week or so. Tho market showed traces of firmness during the last half 'of the session, when a number of Issues gained ractlons to more than a point. Some selling appeared In the leaders In the ate trading, however, and the close was barely steady-. American Telephone weakened In ho last hour, closing down a major 'ractlon. < \ Selling of Consolidated Gas again appeared In small volume, and that. ssue closed off a minor fraction. U. 3.
