When t\w? or more groups try to I gain control ?.t the management o.% a corporation they send out proxies asking the shareholders to give' them the power lo vo.e tlieir shares lor one of the parties in the con test. .Not long ago. for example inter ests Jed by the late financier Kob- i ert Young, wanted to get control ol | ?he great New York Central Kail road. They wanted shareholders to vote for the directors they nomi nated. It has been estimated that in that j contest each side spent more than j a million dollars on publicity, ad vertising and sales plans, trying to win the approval of the greatest number of shareholders. Both sides made conflicting statements and claims.
