net income of $1,484 million in the second quarter, or $.76 per diluted common

very best in our industry, including a return on average assets of 1.70
percent, return on average common equity of 16.1 percent and an efficiency
ratio of 51.7 percent. I take great pride in our Company's ability to attain
