Stock splits may reach all-time high By JOHN DORFMAN NEW YORK (AP) — The number of companies splitting their stock may reach an all- time high this year with an unintended assist from the Nixon administration, whose controls on dividends are acting to encourage splits. A split is an action taken by a company to increase its number of outstanding shares, at the same time decreasing the value of each individual share. The usual reason is to bring the stock into a more attractive price range. If John Jones owns 100 shares of X Corp., worth $100 each, and X Corp., declares a 2-for-l split, Jones gives up his old shares and gets 200 new ones in return. According to market economics each of Jone's new shares would be worth $50, so he has the same $10,01)0 investment he started out with. In fact, however, it often happens that the value of the shares increases a bit, as new investors are attracted to the stock to its lower price. If the price rises to $51 a share, Jones has a $200 profit. The stock split, in effect, can function like a dividend, giving Jones a little extra return for his money. As part of Phase 2, the administration has maintained a 4 per cent annual limit on increases in dividends, but it has not regulated splits. "By virtue of the freeze on dividends, some companies have been splitting their stock as an alternative way of doing something for their shareholders," said Merle Wick, vce president for listing at the New York Stock Exchange. So far this year, the NYSE has logged 111 splits, compared with 66 last year. At the American Stock Exchange, there have been V3 splits so far this year, identical to the total for all of 1971. The record Amex year was 1968, with 93 splits. Poets take JERSEYVILLE - William F. Sevier, 75, of Hamburg died Aug. 27 in Jersey Community Hospital. He was born Feb. 7, 1897 in Calhoun County.

Thirty poets, some well known, some aspiring, will record two minute readings of their own verses which will •be available to telephone callers. The program, called "Tele- poem" by its inventors, the Phiadelphia Museum of Art and a YMCA poetry group, aims to bring "poetry to the people." David Katzive, of the Museum's education division, said the telephone is "particularly appropriate" for poetry and will, "through its own electronic qualities, add its own flavor to the sound of the poem."
