I remember Frances fondly. She treated all techs with the same respect as we did with her.
I was a new Tech in 1954, hired August 31st. Frances called me to ask
"When do you want your vacation?" I was flabergasted! I wasn't aware that I was so entitled,
(had Art Schoenfuss waited one more day to hire me I would not have been entitled.)
She said, "How about Christmas?" -- it was a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
None of my neighbors could believe that I would be on vacation four months after being hired!
Those were the truly GREAT days of CBS.
