AN IMPORTANT STATEMENT ABOUT
m
The Policy of
SHIR LIITi TRUST
ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA
THE interest shown in the organization of the Shirlington Trust Company,
both by friends and strangers, is indeed gratifying. It is evidence of
the great need of banking services at Shirlington. Calls from other banks,
from brokerage firms, from potential investors, have poured into the tele
phones of each Director since the first announcement that Shirlington
Trust Company was on its way. The continuous requests for further in
formation have made it mandatory that we come to you through the press to
answer your questions.
STOCKHOLDERS: It is, the desire of
the Board of Directors to distribute the
common stock to the lorgest possible num
ber of stockholders. To this end, there
will be 25,000 shares of common stock
having a par value of $10.00 per share.
There will be a paid-in surplus and un
divided profits of $50,000.00 orising from
sale of stock at $1 2.00 per shore. Although
the number of shares limits distribution, the

that a wide distribution of shares is desired.
Applications for ten or more shares of
stock will be entertained until December
31; applications must be accompanied
by check or money order for the number
of shores subscribed, ot $12.00 per share,
