Ashton said Thursday General Host intends to complete the sale of its Armour stock as soon as ICC approval is received. The contract between the two firms provides that all Armour directors nominated by General Host-will resign upon completion of the transac- ion. Gerald H. Trautmanr president of Greyhound, said his firm views the election of Ashton, and an increase in the size of the board from 17 to 21 members,* ...which was approved Thursday, as a violation of the agreement between tho two irms. To fill the newly-created four seats on Armour's board four nominees of General Host were elected. They are Jay A. Pritzker, chairman of Marmon Group, Inc.; Charles B. Johnson, president of Franklin Distributors, Inc., and James J. Murray and Brian E. Lorenz New York lawyers. This brings General Hosts's representation to 12 members.

Star Banner Co., acquired in July, 1969. Marvin C. Whatmore, president, singled out a 39-page decrease in advertising pages in Look magazine as a major factor in the decline. However, he said that in the last 13 weeks orders for future advertising insertions have been running substantially ahead of a year ago. Whatmore said also that the company continued to be affect ed by losses resulting from the reorganization that began in late 1969 of its subsidiaries sell lv.7 ing magazine subscriptions on a change, has a 1970_.range of $5.50 to $10.87 and closed Thursday at $5.50. Time's Ad Run Time._Inc,'s advertising.' .and revenues "are running behind he comparable 1969 quarter by 5 per cent to 6 per cent, James Shepley, president, told the New York Security Analysts. He declined 1 , however, to make a prediction of advertis- ng revenues for the rest of the year, except to note that in the case of Life magazine "there appears to be an improving trend." As previously reported, the irm's first-quarter earnings amounted to $1.1 million, or 15 cents a share compared with a oss of $300,000 in the same period of 1969. • Shepley said higher earnings in the first quarter came mainly from increased maga- z i n c circulation revenues, sales of books, records and paper products. He said advertising, revenues were lower in the first quarter. Broadcasting revenues should 'continue to make a major contribution to the company's sales and earnings," Shepley said: Time's stock, traded on the New.York Stock Exchange, has ranged this year from $27.75 to 543.50, and closed Thursday at $28.62, where the yield on the 51.90 dividend-rate is 6.6 percent.— — Curtis Publishing Curtis Publishing Co. named Beurt SerVaas president and chief executive of its Saturday Evening Post Co., a subsidiary that had been set up to publish the now defunct magazine of the same name. Holiday and Jack & Jill are )ublished by Curti?, but had }een up for sale. A spokesman said—the—appointment-of—Ser- Vaas ends attempts to sell the remaining magazines and "sig- lals the determination of Curtis to continue publication of both Holiday and Jack & Jill." Urbandale Bank Brenton Banks, Inc., regis- ;ered bank holding company of Des Moines, which is associated with 14 banks in Iowa, has been granted approval to establish a new bank in Urbandale. This was announced by William H. Brenton, C. Robert Brenton and J. C. Brenton, who said the approval of the board of governors of the Federal Reserve System will permit Brenton Banks to own 98 per cent of .be outstanding shares of the new bank. - • An affiliated Brenton bank, Northwest Des Moines National Bank, has been serving the Ur- jandale community with a bank office at 7031 Douglas, which will be the address of the new bank's building that will be constructed starting this summer.
