When Northrop Grumman Corp. completes its $3.8-billion purchase of Litton Industries Inc. next month, the biggest beneficiaries may well be Litton's top executives, who could end up with $168 million in compensation. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Thursday, the bulk of the merger-related largess will go to five senior executives at Litton, who could take home $110 million in vested stock options, severance and lump-sum supplemental retirement payments.

How the Survey Was Conducted To compute compensation, The Times counts the executive's salary and bonus, the stated value of stock options granted during the year, the value of stock awards, and any long-term or annual compensation--usually listed as "other" compensation in corporate reports but including car allowances, insurance premiums, retirement plan contributions, special consulting or director fees and loan forgiveness and other special arrangements that benefit the executive.

Keizo Yoshida is the top officer of Sumitomo Bank of California, a big, profitable institution. Yet with an annual pay package worth $210,400, he earns only a fraction of what executives at similar banks take home. Yoshida isn't destitute, of course. But neither is he unique. Even as big money gets all the headlines, a surprising number of top executives are paid relatively modestly.

It clearly pays to be a top officer of one of California's top corporations, but company insiders often get far more than just a salary, perks and lucrative severance arrangements. In many cases, they are involved in other business arrangements with their firms that can pay off in a big way. Hamburger mogul Carl Karcher, for example, drew a relatively modest $389,169 in cash compensation from Carl Karcher Enterprises last year.

When Global Crossing Chief Executive Robert Annunziata abruptly left the telecommunications firm a few weeks ago, sources said he was departing with a "generous" severance package.

But questions about executive pay at nonprofit agencies arose after the resignation earlier this year of United Way President William J. Aramony, amid questions about financial matters. His salary was $463,000.

To understand how an Ozarks boy like George Kessinger made it to the top of Goodwill Industries International requires all of an hour. First, there's his Dagwood Bumstead charm, which sneaks up slowly as he unfurls his life story. His birth in a tar-paper shack in Neosho, Mo., no heat or bathroom, the family sleeping clothed to keep warm. His first job at 11, digging up earthworms for a penny each to save up for a ham radio.
