She shrugs when she is called ·the country's highest paid female executive and says "I haven't the foggiest notion of how they got that.-There probably are women on Wall Street who earn as much." Her climb up the corporate ladder began 23 years ago with a job as a copywriter for the bargain basement division of a Youngstown, Ohio, department- store. Then'she moved to New York and a battery of high-paying, high-powered jobs with a string of prestigious Madison Avenue agencies. Mary Wells became the hottest name in advertising when she and two former partners founded their own shop in 1966 and snared the lucrative American Motors account. The agency went public two years later, acquired Gardner Advertising Co. of St. Louis last year, and is now one of the 15 largest in the nation with 1972 billings of almost $115 million. WRG eventually lost American Motors but added such accounts as Alka Seltzer, Gleem, Love Cosmetics, Sun Oil and Westinghouse. Along the way Mary Wells also married one of her clients, chairman Harding L. Lawrence of Braniff Airways. The agency gave up the account after the marriage but managed to replace it with another airline, TWA. · The term middle-aged just doesn't fit Mrs. Lawrence, who pushes herself unremittingly during the week but devotes weekends to her husband and their children by previous marriages. Its her second marriage. "I switch off Friday at .about 4 p.m. and don't turn on again until Monday morning," she said in an interview.

"We have prac tically no social life. I think' we've been to three parties this last year." To hear Mrs. Lawrence tell it, she and her husband mainly. talk shop. "We're like a mini- corporation," she said. "Our interests are 100 per cent in common. We're both financially oriented and stimulate each other with our thoughts about running a business. "Not that we talk about Braniff or Wells, Rich, Greene. What we do talk about is taxes, the stock market, concepts of managing a company, 'how what's going on in Washington will affect business." Wells, Riche, Greene is extremely cost-conscious and boasts OP.G of the highest profit margins in the business, 17 per cent of revenues compared with an industry average of about 7 per cent. "This agency was started with the idea it would be a publicly owned company," she said. "I've always believed that if you're in business, you're in business to make money and being public is wonderful self- discipline." Although WRG is a business run in dead seriousness, the hallmark of its advertising is humor. It's the shop that turned out the zany Bic Banana commercials using the voice of humorist Mel Brooks and the funny Alka Seltzer spots.
