Captain Sandberg Honored At New York Section SNAME Meeting

Capt. Clifford W. Sandberg, USMS (Ret.), was the honored guest at the season's last meeting of the New York Metropolitan Section, The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.

A member of SNAME since 1945, he was for many years chairman of the Section's Membership Committee, playing a strong role in developing student membership.

Professor Sandberg, assistant head of the Department of En- gineering at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy for 30 years, has been a major influence in the training and licensing of seagoing engineers. He was a member of the Maritime Administration staff for the nuclear ship Savannah, and has been associated with preparation of license examinations for Liberian services since 1950.

The author of the evening was Prof. Moses W. Hirschkowitz of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, who presented a paper titled A Steam Engineer's First Impressions of a Diesel Propulsion Plant. The paper discussed a variety of problems concerning the at-sea operation and maintenance of the modern motor ship.

It was directed in particular at those members of the marine industry who are responsible for planning, specifying, machinery procurement, design, and management of such engine plants.

Professor Hirschkowitz touched on such topics as the unattended engine room, local/bridge controls, work areas and tools, instrumentation, and maintenance.

Drawing on his several tours of duty aboard diesel-powered ships, he illustrated his presentation with slides taken aboard those vessels.

At this meeting, Section officers for the 1981-82 season were elected. Neil E. Reddy, managertechnical operations for ABS Worldwide Technical Services, Inc. was elected chairman. John C. Daidola of M. Rosenblatt & Son was named vice chairman, and Joseph D. Connors, consulting engineer, will be secretarytreasurer.
