Robert L. Hague Post
To Honor Admiral Rea
Comdr. Lester A. Dutcher, Rob- ert L. Hague Merchant Marine
Industries Post No. 1242, Amer- ican Legion, Department of New
York, announced the selection of the recipient of the Post's Dis- tinguished Service Citation and
Guest of Honor for the Post's 37th Annual Guard of Honor Ball.
Vice Adm. William F. Rea III,
USCG, Commander, Atlantic Area and Third Coast Guard District, will receive the citation in the
Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-
Astoria Hotel in New York City on October 29, before representa- tives from the maritime industry assembled to honor Admiral Rea.
The admiral, who graduated from the U.S. Coast Guard Acad- emy in 1941, has served in mer- chant marine related assignments during a considerable portion of his career. Through the years, members of the industry have come to admire and respect Ad- miral Rea as a professional of the highest order. His support for a strong and safe American mer- chant marine is well known to the maritime community. When the admiral assumed his present command in 1974, he was return- ing to the Port of New York, where he had previously served as Officer-in-Charge of Marine
Inspection from 1964 to 1967.
Former recipients of the cita- tion have been Adm. John M. Will,
USN (ret.) ; Thomas J. Smith, president, Farrell Lines; Senator
Warren G. Magnuson; Helen
Delich Bentley, Chairman, Fed- eral Maritime Commission, and many other distinguished mem- bers of the maritime industry.
Stal-Laval, Swedish manufac- turer of steam and gas turbines for use on land and at sea, has appointed Henrik Harboe as di- rector of energy policy. This new post was established to enable the
Stal-Laval Group to follow more closely the fast developments in the energy field, and for the han- dling of contacts with important institutions associated with en- ergy. Mr. Harboe will be stationed in London.
Wiley makes them work.
Leonardo Da Vinci was far ahead of his time. His concepts of underwater tunnels looked great on paper, but it took modern engineering techniques to make some of those ideas hold water. If he'd had Wiley's staff of more than 400 skilled specialists to call on, he could have added to his long list of accomplishments... and the costs wouldn't have strained the royal treasury.
Wiley has the working experience, fabricating tunnel sections, handling the welding, and providing the expertise to make underwater or underground tunnels feasible and financially practical.
You don't have to go to Florence to see Wiley's handiwork. Our tunnel tubes will be an integral part of the new Washington subway...passing under the
Potomac River. And in nearby Baltimore, drop by the harbor and you'll probably see some of our coal barges, hopper barges, tank barges, and special- purpose barges up to 425 feet long. We also make ship mid-bodies, workboats, pier forms, hatch covers and custom work.
You'll find us nearby, at the mouth of the Susque- hanna River. We're 150 miles from the Baltimore Can- yon, 350 miles from Boston, 750 miles from Jackson- ville and 4,200 miles from Florence, Italy.
