At the Dixie Boy Truck Stop, a scruffy namesake in blue denims and cowboy boots snuffs out his cigarette and takes a last gulp of coffee. He fuels up his 18-wheeler and pays the clerk on his way back out to that endless black ribbon. "Don't forget your stamps," the smiling clerk says, unfurling a seemingly endless green ribbon of trading stamps. "I don't collect them myself-- uh, I give them to my mom," explains Jim Murphy, an Edgewater, Fla.-based long hauler. "She's the one who collects them."

Frank V. McCullough Sr., the Beverly Hills insurance executive fired by Sperry & Hutchinson Co. because he made too much money, agreed Friday to accept a $10-million court award rather than face a new trial of his civil suit against the Green Stamp company. Jurors in January awarded McCullough $20 million in damages, but Los Angeles Superior Court Assistant Presiding Judge Jack E. Goertzen decided on Wednesday that the amount was "somewhat excessive" and cut the figure to $10 million.

A Beverly Hills insurance executive who was fired by Sperry & Hutchinson Co. for making too much money was told Wednesday that he must accept $10 million, instead of the $20 million a jury awarded him last January, or face a new trial. In reducing the award to Frank V. McCullough Sr., 64, Los Angeles Superior Court Assistant Presiding Judge Jack E. Goertzen said that he had no question about the liability of the Green Stamp company but that he believes $20 million is "somewhat excessive."

Word that S&H Green Stamps is in hot pursuit of the yuppie market came as a great relief to a 78-year-old monk in Stockbridge, Mass. It's not that Brother Alphie covets the racy red roadster, the raccoon coat or other luxury prizes that staid Sperry & Hutchinson Co. is using to lure the yup-and-coming. What heartens Brother Alphie more than any solid brass executive yo-yo (six books) is the conversion of lick-and-stick Green Stamps to peel-off seals.

The California Department of Insurance assumed control of a San Diego insurance company Monday because state officials believe the firm is operating in a "financially hazardous" condition. State regulators took over S & H Insurance Co., with headquarters in Mission Valley, after they discovered that the firm was "paying out more than they were taking in," said department spokesman Jorge Sandoval. Sales in the first nine months of 1984 plunged to $12.

Their distinctive home stands alone on a mountain above Malibu, affording a magnificent view of the coastline, but it's their view of the world that sets Lewis and Barbara Marvin apart from the madding crowd below.

But nobody else does it the Marvin family's way.
