Surest Route to Success: 'Visiposure 9 By JOHN CUNNIFF (AT Buslneas Analyst) ' NEW YORK (AP) - Visipo- sure, it has been learned by computer, is one of the surest routes to corporate success, a clearly marked route up the corporate mountain. The word is • combination of visibility and exposure, with visibility being the ability of the aspirant to see the top of the corporate Olympus, and exposure the position of being teen by the men above. While others labor on the cliffs and crags of the rocky climb upward, those with visipo- sure mount the corporate mountain steadily, stopping on plateaus to study and learn for a couple of years—seldom more than five. The word was coined by Dr. Eugene E. Jennings of Michigan State University, who studied by electronic computer the 'routes used by successful executives in some of the nation's largest and fastest growing firms. . He found that the ability, of the upcoming executive to see and copy those who can influence his career, and to keep himself in view of those who might promote him, are all important. . . , In Jenning's view, the manager of the Nome, Alaska branch is likely to advance far more slowly than the department manager .'based in New 1 York headquarters. The Nome man may 'be the better of the two, but he lacks visiposure. This is just one of the findings that permitted'Jennings to pick nine of 11 presidents chosen by top corporations last year from 208 candidates. As early as midcareer- he believes, accurate forecasts can be made of which individuals will be the top officers. "All cor- poratib'ns," he said in an interview, "have but a few fast New Self Polishing Floor Cleaner Puts High Luster on Vinyl and Linoleum Floors in Carroll If your linoleum or vinyl floors look yellow and dull from the wax you are using, here's a new floor cleaner that cleans as it polishes, gives an amazing new Lustre to hard surface floors.

After intensively, studying cor- potations for 18 years, Jennings has developed the study of rhob- ilography, which he says defines the routes and channels to the top 'of almost all 'large/ established, bureaticratic organizations!' • ' ' ' • His mobilography report was published by the University of Michigan under the title: "The Mobile Manager: A Study of the New Generation of Top Executives." A few findings: ; —In the past 20 years the fastest movers were the fastest learners, those with the most reliable intuitions and quickest responses. This enabled them to quickly learn successively more responsible jobs. The equally intelligent and perhaps more thorough man tended to become a shelfsitter. — Any manager who sits on a shelf for five years or longer will probably not advance more than two levels above his present positions. — There is no combination of degrees more helpful to a rising executive than a bachelor degree in engineering or science and a master degree in business administration, ••.",'• — The faster learners — the successful executives—often succeed in spite of their mistakes. "It isn't mistakes but what is learned from them," Jennings said. "The mouse being tested in the laboratory maze learns from the electric shock as well as from the cheese," he said.

Cook, chairman of the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation County Committee here. The target is to divert from production about 30 million acres — 10 million more than were diverted in 1967 — in order to reduce feed grain .stocks and gain stronger prices. The chairman listed the following key provisions of the program: 1. Farmers will divert to conserving uses 20 per cent of their base acreage of corn'and sorghums hi order to qualify for price-support loans and payments. No diversion payments will be made for this minimum diversion, except for small- farm acreages — the same as in 1966 and 1967. . . 2. Additional acreage may be diverted up to a.total of 50 per cent of the base or 25 acres, whichever is larger. The acreage, diversion rate for. this voluntary diversion will be 45 per cent of the total price support (loan plus price-support payment) times the farm's . established yield. In the 1967 program, there was no payment for diversion except from bases of 25 acres or less. v -U- 3. For small farms (with a base of 25 acres or less), a diversion payment will be available at 20 per cent of the total support rate times the farm yield for the first 20. per cent acreage diversion, and at the regular 45 per cent payment rate on the remaining acreage .diverted to.a. conserving use.; 4. As in 1967, producers with corn-sorghum base acreages up to 125 acres will have the op- BRAND NE LAUNDRY TWINS We bought right and are passing the savings on to you!

Price-support loan levels under the 1968 program will be the same as in 1967 — for corn, in Carroll County $1.01 per bushel; and sorghum, $1,51 per hundredweight. Price- support payments will continue at 30 cents per bushel for corn and 53 cents per hundredweight on sorghum, based on t h e planted, acreage up to one-half the farm base times the projected yield. ; 6. Substitution provisions relating to wheat and feed grain acreage. (including barley and oats-rye) will be continued. 7. Barley is not included in the 1968 program, and producers of this crop will be eligible fdr barley price-support' loans regardless of the acreage planted. 8. Price-support loan levels for feed grain crops not covered, by the program are national averages of 90 cents per bushel for barley, 63 cents a bushel for oats, and $1.02 a :bushel for rye. < Chairman Cook said that further program details will be announced prior to signup time. The questions still to be answered concern the availability of advance payments, me pro- ductiohr'of substitute -crops on diverted acreages, and whether soybeans may be planted on corn-sorghum acreage in 1968 as in 1967 without loss of the -feed grain price-support payments. Signups for participation in the ,1968 programs will take place concurrently during February; and March,; 1968. Sees Original Screenplay in aComeback By BOB THOMAS <AJ» Movle-Televl§lon Writer) HOLLYWOOD (AP) - The comeback of the original screenplay is predicted and devoutly hoped for by George Axelrod, an experienced practitioner of that now rare art form. For the outsider, it should be explained that films are derived from two sources: previously written material,. such as plays, novels, television shows, comic strips, etc.; and original screenplays, written expressly for the film medium. Axelrod Is • veteran of both adaptations, "The Seven Year Itch," "Bus Stop," "The Manchurian Candidate" and originals, "Phfft," "How to Murder Your Wife." Right now he is producing and directing his own original screenplay of "The Female Mistake," starring Walter Matthau and Anne Jackson. "Actually I could have done this first as a play, since it would fit comfortably into two sets," said Axelrod, a cherubic 45. "But by the time I had gone through the process of putting it on the stage, I would have been too tired of it to film the movie. "So I'm writing it on film instead. The camera is a marvelous typewriter; you can use faces instead of words." Axelrod hopes that other writers will follow his course and aim their works directly 'at the screen, instead of fashioning plays or novels first. "The original screenplay was once a fine institution," he observed. "All the great screwball comedies of the 1930s were originals. "But after the war producers began to shy away from originals. Because of the greatly increased cost of making films they wanted presolc properties—that is, novels anl plays that had already been tested on the public. Also, the studios no longer had those vast Times Herald, Caroll, la. "T Thursday, Nov. 9, 1967 / Women Win Voting Contest More Carroll women than men turned out to vote Tuesday, the League of Women Voters reported Wednesday. A tally of names of those who voted revealed that 623 men and 655 women were; included among the 1,278 voters, Mrs. Robert Merritt, League voters' service chairman, said. However, only one ward, the fourth, bad more ;women voters than men; men topped the lists in the other three wards. The League and members of the Carroll Jaycees had a contest to see whether they could get out more men or women to Vote. In the first ward, the count was 166 women, 171 men; second ward, 169 women, 172 men; third ward, 12fr women," 142 men; fourth ward, 194 women, 138 men. Vanderheiden Elected at Harlan John L. Vanderheiden Jr., of Harlan, ay former Carroll resident, won a close election over incumbent Eddie Roos for 4th Ward councilman at Harlan Tuesday. Vanderheiden Is president of Van's Moving Storage, Inc., which has offices in Harlan and Council Bluffs. He graduated from Carroll High School and worked with his father, John Vanderheiden Sr., in the moving business for many years. He went to Harlan in 1959 and started his own moving business. Vanderheiden is a past president of the Harlan Kiwanis club, past vice president of the Chamber of Commerce and is presently on ah executive committee of the Iowa Warehousemen's Assn. reservoirs of writing talent to turn out originals." European film makers have not been so restricted. They have relied more on originals than on adaptations; the results can be seen in the Motion Picture Academy's nominations for best original screenplay, which have been dominated by Europeans in recent years. Axelrod sees the tide turning with such recent originals as "Bonnie and Clyde" and "Thoroughly Modern Millie." They are still difficult to sell to the studios, he admitted, but that feat can be worked by tying up a star to go with the package, or by being a hyphenate. In Hollywood parlance a hyphenate Is a multifunctional creator like Axelrod, writer- director-producer. Hughes: Wire Error Prompted Attack by Gross DBS MOINES (AP) — A spokesman for Gov. Harold Hughes says a typographical error in a telegram prompted an attack on Hughes by Rep. H. R. Gross, R-Iowa, on the House floor Wednesday. Gross said he was "shocked" at what he saw as a Hughes request for support for authorization,'of $2.6 billion for antipoverty programs. A Hughes spokesman said the Democratic governor sent Iowa congressmen telegrams asking support for the bill at its pending figure of $2.06 billion. He said a typographical error caused the change to $2.6 billion. Gross pointed out the increase in a reply, Hughes thanked him for it and sent another telegram with the correct figure, the aide said. But he added he doubte< the second telegram reaches Gross before he made his floor speech. "The governor never intendec to urge an increase of more than half a billion dollars" in the bill, the Hughes spokesman said. 4-H Club News Activities of Carroll Area Boys, Girls Clubs The Carroll Jolleyettes 4-H lub met Nov. 7.
