Thomas, pictured above observing the operation of a milling machine in their establishment, the Thomas machine shop, comprise another father and son Standard Oi Announces Dividend Directors of the Standard Oil company (Indiana) Monday declared regular cash dividends of "50 cents for the 3rd quarter and 50 cents for the 4th quarter of this year. They also declared one extra dividend to cover both quarters, comprising one share of Standard Oil company (New Jersey) stock for each 100 shares of Standard Oil company (Indiana) stock held on the record date. Fractional shares will not be distributed, but holders of odd lots (i. e,, other than even 100-share lots) of Standard Oil company (Indiana) stock will be paid a cash sum equivalent to the value of the fractional shares of the Standard Oil company (New Jersey) stock to which they would be entitled on a pro-rata basis. Depends on Market The precise amount of such cash sum will be determined by the weighted average market price of the Standard Oil company (New Jersey) stock on the record date as reflected by transactions on the New York stock exchange. At present market prices the extra dividend would be equivalent to about 87 cents per share of Standard Oil company (Indiana) stock. The 3rd quarter cash dividend *team. The elder Mr. Thomas moved to Mason City in 1907 and has been continuously associated with the machine shop profession since that date. He has been employed on the same corner for the past 40 years, and founded the Thomas machine shop in 1921 at its current site, 303 2nd S. W. Ralph Thomas was employed in his father's concern on a part time basis while attending the Mason City high school and junior college. After attendance at Iowa State college at Ames, and the university of Iowa, he entered the army for a 3£ year period of service. Upon release from the military, he became actively affiliated with the concern as a partner. The father is a member of the Mason City Chamber of Commerce, the local saddle club, the rod and gun club, and the movie makers club, while the son is associated with the American Legion.

The 4th quarter regular cash dividend will be paid on December 10, 1948, to stockholders of record November 10, 1948. Acquired in 1932 The Standard Oil company (New Jersey) stock being distributed is a part of that acquired in 1932 as part payment for certain foreign properties sold by Standard Oil company (Indiana) at that time. The value of the extra dividend for tax purposes will be the weighted average price on Sept. 10, 1948, as to which stockholders will be advised later. By making the distribution in this form the Standard Oil company (Indiana) conserves cash for expansion needs, but gives round- lot stockholders the option of retaining a valuable stock or of selling it to augment their" cash income. .
