James W. Strider, executive vice president and cashier of the bank said in an open letter to the stock holders that the year 1959 has been a most successful one for the bank and total resources have now been built up to a point where the bank's capital structure should be increased.

If the vote is favorable, each shareholder will receive ad- ditional share for each 10 shares owned. No fractional shares will be issued but those share owners entitled to fractional shares will be paid in cash at the market val- ue. Those shareowners who pre- fer to round out their fractional share to a full share will have the opportunity to do so by paying market value for the additional fractional share.
