vendors is upheld Big jobs given to young men Life begins in the 40s By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK UP Life begins at 40 in Washington these days and also in many business fields In government men in their forties are taking over in the White House and in many cabinet and other top posts But industry also can muster a sizeable list of companies headed by men in their forties and by some even younger They have come up fast in their fields just as did Presidentelect Kennedy 43 in his and as did the photofinish loser Nixon 48 in the same field of politics Spanning the industrial and political endeavors will be Ro bert S McNamara who at 44 is quitting as president of Ford Motors to become defense secretary IN INDUSTRY there are 1600 heads of successful enterprises who are members of the Young Presidents Organization in which merbership lapses at the age of 49 The great majority of corpor ate chiefs are well above that age of course For most it has been a long climb up the execu tive ladder For many the ten ure of the top office will be short because it has been won onlywhen close to the retire ment age or upon the death of an incumbent also at a mellow age But throughout the nations business history there have al ways been exceptions young men who have risen fast Some have headed young companies Others have taken over esta blished big concerns Some of todays young execu tives run enterprises owned by their families SOME HAVE become the youthful president of a company that absorbed a smaller one he was running An example Nor man E Alexander 46 who be came president of Sun Chemical three years ago when it took over AnsbacherSiegle a pig ment manufacturing firm that he headed since he was 36 To day Alexander also is president of TV and radio stations KXLY in Spokane Wash and KELP in El Paso Texas and of Fed eral Color Inc of Cincinnati Ohio Hundreds of other men in their forties now run up and coming enterprises in widely varied fields scattered across the nation Here is the merest handful of examples Miles B Lane now 48 be came president of the Citizens and Southern National Bank in Atlanta Ga when 34 The banks net worth has gone from million to million dur ing his regime He preaches the humanizing of banks and also seeking out opportunities to lend rather than waiting for borrow ers to drop in Richard Leghorn 41 is presi dent of Itek Corp a space age technological firm at Waltham Mass which he helped start three years ago HENRY ALBRECHT 48 started the WacoPorter Corp of Minneapolis from scratch in 1945 It makes portable metal scaffolding with sales now more than million a year Beverly Howard 46 president of Hawthorne Aviation an air craft sales and flight training concern became its head when he was 21 He started his bus iness career as a grease mon DBS MOINES UPI The Iowa Supreme Court ruled Wed nesday that remote control cigarette vending machines are legal The high court ruled on two appeals and in effect said the machines still require the oper ator of the establishment to dis pense the cigarettes even though they are contained in the machine Both of the appeals originated in Des Moines and in both cases the rulings by the late Polk County District Court Judge Carroll Switzer that the ma chines were legal were upheld TWO TYPES of vending ma chines were involved in the ap peals One was the type in which purchasers put coins into the machine but the proprietor must push a switch before the cigar ettes can be obtained This case involved an appeal by former Atty Gen Norman Erbe from Switzers ruling in the case of the Continental Industries The other type is one in which the customer gives the money to the proprietor and he puts it into the coin box which is not accessible to the pur chaser This caseinvolved an appeal from a lower court rul ing in favor of Imperial Ven dors Both cases were upheld by the narrowest of margins 44 with newly elected Justice Bruce M Snell not taking part in the decision In case of ties the opinion of the lower court is upheld THE MAJORITY reasoned that machineselling in itself is not illegal in Iowa and that the law prohibits only the sale of cigarettes by means of a de vice known as a vending ma chine Thus the majority said it felt the legislature intended that cigarette sales should be banned only from a wholly automatic type machine It said that only one section of Iowa law specifically limits the sale of cigarettes and that is to persons under 18 years of age Voting to uphold the lower court decission were Justices Norman R Hays Robert L Larson Henry Peterson and T Eugene Thornton In a dissenting opinion Chief Justice Theodore G Garfield said the courthad repeatedly held we have no power to write into a statute words not there He said he could not understand how the majority could arrive at the decision that the legisla ture meant wholly automatic machines FAIRandWARMER 6V Many other presidents have yet to see 40 Ed White 32 be came head of
