Baum Wins Slogan Contest With "Hopi CON Pronto"
When the Special
more than 150
entries in the slo-
gan contest, the
prize of Fls. 25
went to Robert
Baum of the Gas
Plant for his "Hopi
The judges agreed
that those three
words expressed in
a nutshell what
Lago employees are
striving to do: give
the United Nations
all the aviation gas-
oline they need -
and in a hurry.
"Hopi" is the
Papiamento word for "much", or "a
whole lot of". CON, standing for
"hundred octane number" (or aviation
gasoline) is the established symbol for
the entire construction project. "Pron-
to", in practically any language, means
"mighty quick". Simply stated, the
slogan means "much aviation gas soon".
Four other slogans were given honor-
able mention by the judges:
"CON"-tribute to Victory, by Rupert
Jailal of the Electrical dept.
Let's Get Along With CON, by Frank
Burson of T.S.D.

Margriet Francisca, the Netherlands
Princess born January 19, was named
for both a flower and a governor-general.
"Margriet" is the name of a certain type
of daisy which is the favorite flower
of Queen Wilhelmina, while "Francisca"
is from "Franciscus", one of the names
of the Earl of Athlone, Governor-Gen-
eral of Canada.
It takes about 62,000 gallons of gas-
oline to train just one Air Force pilot
- which is another good reason for
"Hopi CON Pronto".
It looks like a full-dress battle, but
the blows weren't landing very hard
and the training-headgear made a
knockout unlikely, to say the least. The

Need for Specific Ideas Urged
By Special Awards Committee
The Special Awards Committee came
out of a meeting for considering ideas

not specific enough. "Cut red tape",
they said, is an admirable idea, but it
is essential to point out where and how
red tape can be cut so the construction

"devise method of working in blackout"
is a good idea, as far as it goes, but

Aruba Juniors Take TSD
With Two Wins in Three
Playing like veterans, the Aruba
Juniors softball team took the T.S.D.
Process ten, champions of the Burro
League, into camp with two out of
three wins in a series that ran from
January 24 to February 7.
In two games at Oranjestad and one
at the Colony's Lone Palm Stadium, the
Juniors, this year's Aruba Softball
League champions, played a fast and
tight brand of ball to take the series
from the more experienced team.
It took ten innings to decide the first
game, January 24, after the teams pass-
ed the seventh frame deadlocked at 3 all.
T.S.D. scored twice in the second on a
walk, a single, and an error, and once
in the third on errors to take the initial
lead. The Aruba Juniors bunched two
2 singles, a double, and a free pass to tie
Sthe score in the fifth. A triple play in
the seventh, Zambrano to Hernandez to
Franken, saved the day momentarily for

The second game, January 31, also
went extra innings before it was decid-
ed. The technical men drew first blood
in the fourth when they scored four
runs on six hits and a walk. This look-
ed like the ball game until the Aruba
Juniors crossed the plate twice in the
sixth on an error and two doubles, and
tied the score in the seventh with two
more runs on only two hits and a host of
errors. The eighth was scoreless, but in
