Anthony J. Germano has been elected a vice president of Marine

Fred S. Sherman, chairman of the board of MTL, who announced the election, noted that Mr. Ger- mano brings 40 years of steam- ship experience to his new assign- ment. Prior to joining MTL, a subsidiary of GATX Corporation,
Chicago, 111., Mr. Germano served as an assistant vice president of the steamship subsidiaries of
Bethlehem Steel Corporation.
Mr. Germano holds Bachelor of
Science and Master of Business
Administration degrees from New
York University. He served in the
U.S. Army during World War II, and again during the Korean Con- flict, advancing from the grade of private to the rank of major.
The dictionary defines "encyclo- paedia" as "works which give a detailed account of the whole field of human knowledge, or of some particular section of it." Encyclo- daedia is therefore a very apt term to use when describing Mac-
Gregor's new Ro-Ro brochure.
With more than 400 Ro-Ro ships to its name, MacGregor has vol- umes of experience in all types of Ro-Ro transfer and access equipment, and this publication catalogs the full range in sub- stantial, but easy-to-follow detail.
The early pages are devoted to describing the variety of ship types now using MacGregor equip- ment to facilitate the horizontal handling of cargo. In so doing, it inevitably also charts the prog- ress of Ro-Ro ship and equipment design from the very earliest ships (MacGregor was developing a deepsea ship for the U.S. Navy 25 years ago) to the present day giants for owners like Seaspeed and Nedlloyd.
The main body of the book is occupied by a well-illustrated sec- tion detailing the many, many products now produced by Mac-
Gregor for Ro-Ro ships. It ranges from 50-meter-long (164-foot) stern quarter ramps and the "Machbridge 90" slewing ramp through elevators, internal ramps and cardecks to the more humble

MacGregor's latest products, a range of link span ramps, are also explained, and information is giv- en on the essential but often ne- glected question of after sales service. MacGregor with its world- wide network of service stations is able to offer the shipowner immediate first-class assistance whenever and wherever it is re- quired.
Finally, there is the reference section, listing every Ro-Ro ves- sel that features MacGregor equip- ment. If after seeing the earlier parts of the book, the reader somehow still wanted more proof of MacGregor's prowess in all as- pects of Ro-Ro, then the reference list will give it. Over 400 Mac-
Gregor Ro-Ro vessels are to be found there, ships which are pro- viding MacGregor with an invalu- able opportunity to watch and learn from Ro-Ro in operation worldwide.
