3 Artist Judy Saks Paints Bicentennial Series On Port of Houston History By MIDDY RANDERSON Publicity Manager The cover of this month s Port of Houston Magazine is a reproduction of the first painting in the Port s Bicentennial Series depieting historical events at the Port of Houston. Houston artist Judy Saks, well-known for her adherence to historic detail in her work as well as for her obvious artistic talent, was commissioned to paint six pictures tracing the history of the Port of Houston from its earliest days as an overgrown bayou to its present status as a bustling center of commerce. Judy is an honor graduate of Sophie Newcomb College and has done extensive graduate work in art at the University of Houston as well as taking courses at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and Rice University. Her work has been honored at several one-woman shows, including one at the Houston World Trade Club in 1971, and has won numerous awards at art competitions and shows. Her avid interest in ships and ports made her a natural choice for the Bicentennial Series and one of her paintings of the Port s inspection vessel SAM HOUSTON was the cover picture for the September, 1971 Port of Houston Magazine. As soon as she accepted the assignment for the series, Judy The historical detail in the painting extends to the faces and clothing of the people. The man with the mustache on the bank in the lower right corner is A. C. Allen, co-founder of the City of Houston and promoter of the LAURA s visit. One the foredeck of the boat, J. K. Allen stands with his hands on his lapels waiting to disembark. Capt. Grayson is shown in the pilot house. Judy researched even the flags and the foliage to be sure each part of the painting was accurate. Painting 1975 by Judy Saks Artist Judy Saks puts the finishing touches on another port-related painting in her Houston studio. immersed herself in research for the first painting. It was to show the historic visit of the Steamboat LAURA, the first vessel to make its way up the tangled and winding Buffalo Bayou to Allen s Landing at the foot of Houston s Main Street, in January, The voyage was meant to prove that Houston could become a Port city despite reservations to the contrary in the minds of many. Houston s founders, J. K. and A. C. Allen had promoted the trip as a publicity stunt rather than a cargo-carrying run and the LAURA was loaded with passengers including, "distinguished citizens, frontiersmen and ladies in their finest dresses." Francis R. Lubbock, later to become a Civil War governor of Texas, also was aboard, but debarked before reaching the landing to make bids in a land sale. Judy spent hours in the Texas Room of the Houston Public Library ferreting out portraits of the Allens, Lubbock and the vessel s master, Capt. Thomas Wigg Grayson. She also studied newspaper files of the period, checking clothing advertisements to make sure the people in the painting would have the correct attire for the time. She made several trips to Allen s Lauding, trying to imagine how it looked 138 years ago and spent time sketching remote areas of Buffalo Bayou that have not been surrounded by the city as the Landing area has. Since all reports of the voyage mention the den~ foliage on the banks of the bayou, Judy called the Houston Arboretum to double check the kinds of trees and bushes that would have been growing at Allen s Landing. She painted in the willows, cottonwood trees, red holly bushes and cattails that grew in abundance on that stretch of the bayou. She also included a magnolia tree in full bloom in the right-hand side of the painting, but then painted out the flowers when the curator of the Arboretum assured her magnolia flowers would not be blooming in Houston in the middle of January. If the Texas flag on the boat s prow doesn t look quite like the one we re used to seeing, it is because Judy took the trouble to look into the subject of Texas and American flags of the period. She discovered that the present-day Texas flag with a lone star on a blue field with red and white bars did not become the official flag of Texas until The flag shown in the painting is the one designed by Republic of Texas President David G. Burnet in 1836 and used until the present flag was adopted. The American flag on the stern also is authentic. The twenty-five star flag was adopted in 1836 when Arkansas joined the Union and was used for only one year, until Michigan became a state and added another star to the flag. Other paintings in the series will be appearing on the Port Magazine cover at regular intervals. When the series is completed, a portfolio of lithographs of the paintings will be assembled and made available to the public. OCTOBER,

4 Trade Development Staff Revised; Three Veterans Take Retirement Every organization goes through changes periodically and the Port of Houston certainly experienced its share of change at the end of September. Three long-time employes retired after many years of service to the Port, and the Port s trade development and promotion departments were reorganized. C. A. Rousser, Port General Sales Manager since January, 1974, has been named Director of Trade Development with responsibility for the trade development and promotion, public relations, advertising and library departments of the Port Authority. A graduate of Texas Tech University and the American Graduate School of International Management in Arizona, Rousser joined the Port staff in His duties included those as district sales representative, district sales manager and western sales manager before he became general sales manager. Armando S. Waterland, Port Midwestern District Sales Representative for more than two years, has been named Midwestern Sales Manager with responsibility for developing trade in a 14-state area in the midwestern United States. He also is taking on international duties and will tie traveling overseas represent-.~- }, ing the Port and developing trade in foreign countries. Waterland is a graduate of the University of Houston and had previous experience with a local steamship agency. William R. Cook, who has been with the Port a year and seven months, will continue h~s duties as Western Sales Manager covering a ll,-state area in the western United States. Cook attended Northern Illinois University and was affiliated with tile Burlington Railroad and Rock Island Lines before joining the Port staff. Two new faces on the trade development staff are Barclay Terhune and Van DeWitt, both of whom will assume duties as Port Sales Representatives responsible for trade promotion in the Houston area. Terhune, a graduate of St. Thomas [iniversity, came with the Port in September after spending several years as a sales representative for General Foods. l)ewitt, a senior marketing major at the University of Houston, is moving to Members of the Port s trade development staff include, from left standing, Armando S. Waterland, Midwestern Sales Manager; C. A. Rousser, Director of Trade Development; and W. R. Cook, Western Sales Manager. Seated are Barclay Terhune, left, and Van DeWitt, Sales Representatives. the trade development department from his current position as Wharf Supervisor at the Port s Barbours Cut Terminal. He has been on the Port staff since 1973 and worked in rail and truek originations before going to Barbours Cut. The Port also maintains a two-man field office in New York City where Ed Moore and Frank Ward are responsible for trade development in the Eastern Seaboard area. As new people join the staff, familiar ones depart and with the retirement of Vaughn M. Bryant as Director of International Relations, the Port loses a man who has made friends for the Port of Houston throughout the world. Bryant joined the Port staff in 1953 with responsibility for developing trade in the Latin Americau countries. He had a journalism and public relations background with a journalism and arts degree from the University of Missouri and had done graduate work at the Universities of Virginia and Mexico. He had spent several years with the Associated Press in Central and South America and had worked with the Texas Good Neighbor Commission, the Department of State in Louisiana and International House in New Orleans. I)uring his years with tile Port, 14

5 Bryant s duties expanded to include Port promotion in European and Asian countries, supervision of the Port of Houston Magazine, responsibility for public rclations and press relations, and serving as the Port s liaison with the ever-growing local Consular Corps. Bryant saw the Corps grow from merely a dozen local legations in 1953 to the present count of ll, countries represented by consulates in Houston. Bryant was one of tile original promotets of the Port s internationally famous Seamen s Center, served as the head of the International Relations Committee of lhe American Association of Port Authorities for 12 years, helped establish the Puertos Amigos program :for training port personnel from Latin American Countries, and has been active with the Japan-America Society and the Houston-Taipei Sister City Com- :mittee. He plans to retire to a lake-front home hi Hot Springs, Arkansas. Bryant s duties will be divided among three existing Port staff members. Armando Waterland will take over his international trade promotion responsibilities, and Mike Scoreio, Executive Secretary to the Port Commission, will become the Port s liaison with the Houston Consular Corps. Middy Randerson, Port Publicity Manager, will assume full responsibility t!or information and press and public relations. Another retiree, Hume Henderson, is leaving his duties as Port Southwestern Sales Manager to enter the real estate field. In his 20 years with the Port of Houston, Henderson has developed hundreds of contacts and friendships for the Port throughout the midwestern United States. A native of Alabama, Henderson had been with Waterman Steamship Corp. for 16 years before he joined the ]Port staff at the Kansas City field office in When the Port opened a Chicago field office, he took charge there and remained in that post until the office was closed and he came to Houston in It has been said that no one knows the shipping business people in the Midwest as well as Hume Henderson and he will be sorely missed. Frank Smith, an employe of 27 years standing at the Port, retired the end of August and his friends at the terminal office say he will probably turn pro golfer before too long since he ll have more time to practice. Smith joined the Port in March, 1948, and has served in many capacities ineluding chief billing clerk and chief revenue clerk. His position on retirement was Manager of the Revenue Billing Department. Smith s wife, Marion, works for PTRA Railroad and they have a daughter and a SOIl. Vaughn M. Bryant, second from right, is shown with his silver tray, a gift from the Consular Corps, and certificate of appreciation from the City of Houston which he received at an appreciation luncheon given in his honor by the Houston Consular Corps. From left to right are Fentress Bracewell, Chairman of the Port of Houston Commission; Jim Westmoreland, Houston City Councilman, and Ignace van Steenberge, Consul General of Belgium and Vice Dean of the Houston Consular Corps. Hume Henderson is shown at center with his fishing gear, a parting gift from his friends on the Port staff given during his staff farewell party. Congratulating him on his retirement are George W. Altvater, left, Port Executive Director, and C. A. Rousser, Port Director of Trade Development.

Curtis, Port Senior Terminal Manager; Mrs. Frank Smith; George W. Ahvater, Port Executive Director, and J. K. Henderson, Controller of the Port. OCTOBER,

6 HOUSTON PORT BUREAU, INC. RECEIVES FAVORABLE DECISION FROM INTERSTATE COMMERCE COMMISSION THE HOUSTON FORT BUREAU and other industries in Houston have been fighting an enormous increase in carloading switching charges within Houston and minimum charges on shipments moving to and from the Port of Houston. This battle has been before the Interstate Commerce Commission since June i, 1973, when the Bureau and other protestants were successful in securing an order from the Interstate Commerce Commission staying the rates for seven months, which resulted in substantial savings for shippers of approximately $i million dollars. The Interstate Commerce Commission order served September 23, 1975, affirmed an earlier order of the Review Board s decision that increased interstate switching charges and minimum charges at Houston had not been shown to be just and reasonable. The latest decision from the Commission ordered the railroads to cancel the higher switching charge of $ per car when in railroad-owned equipment and $ pre car when in privately owned equipment, and reinstate the lower charges that were in effect prior to June i, 1973, plus approved general increases which result in a switching charge of $87.40 per car on all cars. This order results in a reduction in the charges of $92.72 per car on railroad equipment and $71.10 per car on privately owned equipment. Based on a switching study that the railroads conducted and considering the volume involved, the interstate shippers in Houston will save when this order goes into effect approximately $1.8 million per year. This being the case, the rail lines serving Houston may appeal the Commission s decision to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. In the meantime, George Strange, General Manager of the Bureau, states that the Bureau, being the watchdog for the Port of Houston shippers, will continue its fight. CARRIERS APPROVE diversion- proposal, despite objections SOUTHWESTERN reconsignment 16 of bureau and others: Southwestern railroads, despite objections of the Bureau and other port representatives, have approved a proposal that would assess a charge of $14.86 per car on export freight consigned to a port with no further specification and subsequently ordered to a designated wharf. A Bureau representative attended the September i0 public hearing in St. Louis and submitted a statement in opposition to the proposal. In its statement, the Bureau pointed out that approval of this charge would result in ports becoming non-competitive with other ports and carriers assessing the charge becoming non-competitive with carriers not asessing the charge. The Bureau has appealed this proposal to the Executive Committee of the Southwestern Freight Bureau.... SOUTHWESTERN RAILROADS continue switching proposal on docket: Southwestern railroads following a public hearing in St. Louis on September 9, voted to continue SWL Application on the docket. This proposal contemplated increases in intraterminal, inter-terminal and intra-plant switching charges throughout the Southwest. CIRCUIT COURT DISSOLVES Mini-Bridge injunction, decision appealed; FMC law Judge serves initial decision in European mini-bridge case: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans has found that a District Court injunction against Seatrain Lines European Mini-Bridge service should be dissolved. The injunction, granted by Judge Taylor of Beaumont would have meant a discontinuance of this service. Parties opposing the service immediately filed for a rehearing before the circuit court. On September 5, Judge Levy of the Federal Maritime Commission served his initial decision in the complaint of the Forts of Houston, Galveston, Beaumont and New Orleans against Seatrain s European Mini- Bridge service. Judge Levy found that the service had not been shown to be in violation of provisions of FMC law. The Port of Houston and the Bureau have requested an extension of time to file exceptions to this initial decision. PORT OF HOUSTON MAGAZINE
