F 8. 8-B THE REGISTER-NEWS MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 24, 1968 Lytton Down To His Last Million WHEELING IT. Ruth Maron wears Gay '90s costume while visiting a .New York exhibit tracinsr the history of the wheel from its inception to present times. ny IOIIX (I NNII I' , AP Business Analyst l.OS ANCJKLKS t'AP' Bail Lytton. the Los Angeles financier who huilt a personal fortune estimated at Slii million and ilien lost most of it. may soon enter the advertising business. "I'm eontemiJlatiiiK opening .in ai^eney or Incoming a partner in an existing one." lie said it. an interview. "Certain propositions are before me." Lytton said he expeets to announce a decision early next year. The matter at present might be complicated by the upcoming mayoralty race, for Lytton has been mentioned often as a potential candidate for the office. "I have no present intentions to run." said the founder and until April chairman of Lytton Financial Corp. But he added deliberately: "The filing date is not over and it won't be until January." Los Angeles will he his base for any advertising venture, he said, "unless I tied in with an Eastern firm and agree to be a partner managing the Western section." The personable magnate, whose friendships range widely, believes he'll have entre to financial enterprises because of Ihe advertising and merchandising success of his savings and loan association. into which pourec. as much as S5 million to ST million a day. "I have quite a respect in my capacities as a financier, so I think I'll be able to pick and choose my accounts." he said. "Our merchandising was the most effective in the banking- savings and loan field." Lytton handled much of his .own advertising, which he personalized with his photograph in newspaper ads and his voice on radio commercials. Early this year a slowdown in - the home loan business finally , caught Lytton with more bills 'than he could handle and he stepped down under pressure. The company is now being reorganized. Sitting in his air-conditioned ; limousine as it was chauffered through Hollywood, he stared at the impressive facade of the company he founded; "Two months more and I'd )still be there," he said. "I made I a decision to turn the place over to the creditors. If I were ^tub- born for two more months I'd still be there.'' The 55-ycar-old Lytton has agreed not to compete in the savings and loan field for seven 'years. His "Chairman of tbe Board" sign adorns the bar in his apartment, which he moved into two months ago after sell' ing his Holmby Hills mansion. The apartment, an art-filled penthouse in the tallest building in Westwood Hills, overlooks the University of California campus and tbe Los Angeles Country Club. But. it is a big step down, for Lytton is now worth less than a million dollars.

Be sure the entire front edge of the nail is exposed clear across so that the corners are not digging into into the flesh. Avoid tight shoes and tight stretch hose, especially for children. If the toes have no ' room to grow, they can only be compressed and deformed. SOUTH SIDE , DRUG SjcffaE A, -<*W/ft Prices Good Until New Year's Day—1969 Year End Year Out.
