The low, dry, dynamic coefficient of friction of Thordon eliminates the squeal or chatter often asso- ciated with conventional rubber bearings, and the ease of installation based on the material's machinabili- ty and capacity for shrink fittings makes the material an interesting alternative.

Twin Disc, Incorporated of Ra- cine, Wise., has been a leading man- ufacturer of heavy-duty power transmission systems for more than 60 years, and has long been recog- nized as a standard of comparison in the marine industry.
In addition to 22 models of Twin
Disc-manufactured marine trans- missions covering a broad power range from 70 to 1,600 bhp, the Wis- consin company offers many other marine products backed by Twin
Disc. These include: Twin Disc/
NICO marine transmissions with power ratings up to 5,000 bhp; Twin disc/Scanprop controllable-pitch propeller systems; a complete line of marine transmission accessories; and approved renewal parts and parts kits.
Several significant equipment op- tions insure that a Twin Disc marine transmission can be tailored to a particular vessel's operation. These include front—and pump-mounted power takeoffs, top power takeoffs, live power takeoffs, trolling valves, output coupling flanges, heat ex- changers, and indicating gauges.
Most Twin Disc marine transmis- sions have been approved by the
American Bureau of Shipping,
Lloyd's Register of Shipping, Det norske Veritas, and Bureau Veri- tas.

UNIPAR, Inc., a division of Na- tional Marine Service, Inc., has available literature that highlights the 40,000-square-foot facility the company has in St. Louis to provide diesel engine power packs, parts, and components.
Monorails and accumulating con- veyors in the semi-automated facili- ty play major roles in the company's commitment to quick service and quality products at competitive prices. The brochure contains pho- tographs of the semi-automated line of work stations, and discusses each process along the way through the final work station.

WACO Fluid Power of Lexington,
Ky., an American-Standard compa- ny, pioneered the concept of remote pneumatic maneuvering control of marine propulsion engines in the early 1940s, and today is a leading
U.S. and international supplier of wheelhouse controls for a wide vari- ety of diesel-powered ships. With control placed directly at the pilot's command, maneuverability is greatly increased and more efficient vessel operation is obtained. As the operator is now removed from direct contact with the propulsion machin- ery and cannot devote his complete attention to precise manipulation and timing of the control handle movement, the possibility exists for mishandling the propulsion machin-
