Tin plate is at 90 per cent of capacity. Directors of National Steel company declared a quarterly dividend of 25 cents a share on common stock, payable June 30 to stock of record June 20. The disbursement is twice the previous quarterly rate. "Earnings in the second quarter amply justify the increased dividend," said E. T. Weir, chairman. "The company has no obligations or back payments carried over from the depression, and consequently it is in a position to share current earnings increases with stockholders. "The company is in excellent financial position, with cash holdings the largest in its history. In addition the sinking fund requirements due Oct. 1 and a large part of the 1934 requirements already have been taken care of." !
