A realignment of functions and the appointment of key personnel, which affect traffic, and operations and stevedoring, were announced at American Mail Line, Seattle, Wash.-based division of American President Lines, Ltd. The changes, which became effective on February 1, followed the resignations of Robert D. Bush, president of Western Stevedoring and Terminal Corporation, an APL subsidiary which operates in the Puget Sound and Columbia River areas; and Wayne Schiffner, director of traffic services, American Mail Line Division.
Announcement of the realignment was made by Richard H. Beuthel, AML general manager. According' to Mr. Beuthel, the functions of stevedoring and operations which have operated separately in the past, will be placed under a single administrator.

Greenwood was appointed president of Western Stevedoring, and will continue to report to Leslie A. Harlander, APL vice president for operations in San Francisco, Calif.

Martin, director of traffic services, AML Division, who will be responsible for documentation and cargo booking of all vessels as well as the container control function, and William F. Whalen, line manager for the Pacific/Pacificnorthwest/ Sou-theast Asia Service, who will assume traffic responsibility for the C5 vessels.
In their new assignments, Mr.
Martin and Mr. Whalen will report to their counterparts at American President Lines in San Francisco, including Richard F. Andino, vice president, traffic, and Bruce J.
