Checks were mailed Thursday evening to the remaining 37 shareholders. The current distribution represents the liquidation of all remaining assets of value of the bank and trust company, the trustees explained. Recovery by shareholders rose to $80.29 per $100 share with Thursday's payment. Previously all depositors claims had been paid. The bank and trust company went into voluntary liquidation in 1934 after being closed by order of President Roosevelt at the time of the so-called "bank holiday." Grover C. Helm, Charles S. Kirkpatrick and Ned E. Dolan were appointed trustees to liquidate the assets of the bank for the benefit of its 6,600 depositors and other creditors. Seven liqui dating distributions were made to the depositors resulting in payment in full of all claims by Dec. 16, 1937. Twelve liquidating dividends were paid to shareholders be-twen 1939 and Dec. 1, 1947. They totaled $188,250, or 62 per cent of the total face value of the original stock. Following the death of Mr. Helm Oct. 27, 1955, Clifford Cool-idge was appointed a trustee. A check for the total amount of the final distribution was delivered by the trustees to Dana F. Rollins, the only surviving mem-jber of a Shareholders' Liquida-jtion Committee originally includ ing W. C. . Spafford and B. A. Franklin. Individual shareholders' checks then were issued by Mr. Rollins. Distribution of the final liquidation dividend will permit the closing of the books of the trust, the trustees explained.
