Another problem which has
plagued FBA from the time of its
inception two years ago, Red Wil-
lains, '58, pointed out, is that the
group does not have much pres-
tige on campus and has always
had trouble getting student per-
The organization has begun to
circumvent this problem of con-
tinuity by hiring a professional
office worker to handle incoming
calls and orders.
Hopes for Expansion
Leaders of FBA has far-reach-
ing hopes for expansion. "We need
the sororities for expansion," Wil-
liams noted, "and we feel that the
sororities need us."
The group is organized as a cor-
poration. Although originally in-
stituted by Inter-Fraternity Couk-
oil, it is now nearly independent
except for one IFC member who
sits in on board meetings.
They are proud that they are
the only such college organiza-
tion which has operated at a
profit during its first two years.
"We want a real business run
as a student activity," Sheldon ex-
"I'm sad to say," said Tootsie Brown,
"The weight I gain just gets me down.
Each bite, each drop of this or that,
Immediately turns to fat.
Some girls, I note, can eat and eat
And yet they still look trim and neat.
To aggravate the situation
I much dislike my fat's location.
I wouldn't so much want to change me,
If only I could rearrange me.

Frank Roffman is Assistant Manager
of the telephone office at Newport News,
Va. Frank's office has about 25,000 ac-
counts, and handles $360,000 worth of
business a month.
He joined the telephone company in
1953., only three years ago.
"My wife worked there first," says
Frank, "while I was still in college. What
she told me, along with what I learned
from friends in the business, pretty well
sold me on the telephone company as a
place to find a career. And the interview
clinched it. The job opportunities were

continuous and excellent. One of the most
rewarding jobs I had was working on
revenue studies involving estimates of
population and telephone growth. This
experience is really useful in my present
position as Assistant Manager.
"I supervise the personnel who handle
customer contacts. And I assist in the
handling of our public relations work in
the community. In the Manager's ab-
