Accounting for Stock Transactions

See the attachment.
Morris Corporation is publicly owned, and its shares are traded on a national stock
exchange. Morris has 16,000 shares of $2 stated value common stock authorized. Only 75% of these shares have been issued, and of
the shares issued, only 11,000 are outstanding. On December 31, 2012, the Stockholders’ Equity section revealed that the balance in
Paid-In Capital in Excess of Stated Value was $416,000, and the Retained Earnings balance was $110,000. Treasury stock was
purchased at an average cost of $37.50 per share.
During 2013, Morris had the following transactions:
Jan. 15 Morris issued, at $55 per share, 800 shares of $50 par, 5% cumulative preferred stock; 2,000 shares are authorized.

30 Employees exercised 1,000 options granted in 2008 under a fixed stock option plan. When the options were granted, each option
entitled the employee to purchase one share of common stock for $50 per share. The share price on the grant date was $51 per share.
On April 30, when the market price was $55 per share, Morris issued new shares to the employees. The fair value of the options at the
grant date was $6.
May 1 Morris declared a 10% stock dividend to be distributed on June 1 to stockholders of record on May 7. The market price of the
common stock was $55 per share on May 1 (before the stock dividend). (Assume that treasury shares do not participate in stock
dividends.)

beginning of the year. The selling price was $57 per share.

dividend on preferred stock. Both are payable on October 15 to stockholders of record on October 1.
