part of the banks activities or by separate cor poration owned by the bank as cir cumstances and developments may indicate as the proper procedure Col Hanford MacNider as chair man of the board of the First Na tional bank will be active in the de velopment security business in this new form as he has in the past as president of Uie First National company but the inrai National company which will retain its cor porate entity as a holding company for the MacNider interests will di vortte itself from the actual sale o securities carrying on Its other ac tivitieslh the same quarters unt such time
