Ledes were different in the old days:

Globular little Howard C. Hopson, once the high-pressure head of the billion-dollar Associated Gas & Electric System and now, at 58, a neurotic hypochondriac, was convicted yesterday of grubbing $20,000,000 from the pockets of his company's 7000,000 shareholders.

New York Daily News, Jan. 1, 1941
