^ AFTER 40 YEARS AT PORT OF LOS ANGELES French Line Moving '! The Compagnie General Tranatiantique of Paris -better known in this country as the French line--is moving to Long Beach Harbor after more than 40 years at the Port of Los Angeles. Long Beach Harbor commissioners Monday were told the first vessel in the new sen-ice, Mississippi, win put into the local port on March 4. Official welcoming ceremonies, including s luncheon, are being planned. The French Line operates four modem cargo- passenger lines between the West Coast and European ports, including Hamburg and LeHavre. The four ships which will call'at Long Beach are the M i s s i s s i p p i . Maryland. Michigan and Chile. Line officials said the ships will make a combined 14 sailings a year at Long Beach. Port agents for the line will be Westfal Larsen Co.. Pier A. Berth 2. Each of the 9,200-gross- ton. SCO-foot ships can carry 12 passengers and the oldest was launched and put into service in 1958. Estimates are that the line will bring between 28,000 and 30,000 tons^or additional cargo to the Port of Long Beach. V,".

These young fellows have fun, but they also do a lot of good work. Moreover, the fraternities are of considerable economic importance. The estimate is that they dump some $450,000 into t h e community's economic system annually. As for campus life, fraternities and sororities contribute immeasurably to college spirit and success of school activities. More or less under competitive urge, they go in for things in a big way. Without rehashing the longstanding arguments over the fraternity system, it's fair to say the houses make some solid contributions, among them things that Long Beach State campus s e r i o u s l y needs. let--for selling more than 3,000 of the Diamond Jubilee commemorative coins.

(VJE can o n l y guess as ^ to what constitutes the popular conception of college fraternities, which are relatively new to L o n g Beach. Fraternity men and their friends fed that many h a r e some wrong impressions and suggest, that, in fairness, the service programs of these groups of young fellows deserve public notice.
