From that time until

which he served as
electrician for four
years) He first came

Here and There
The man who probably has seen more
of the refinery's development and "grow-
ing pains" than any other is not an
employee but the Government Boiler
Inspector, who, at intervals of several
months, has watched the gradual evolu-
tion of the plant from a cactus patch to
the world's largest refinery. Lionel
Veldtman, the inspector, paid his last
visit to Lago's boilers on March 9. He
has since assumed new duties in Cura-
gao, terminating a connection that goes
back farther than the oldest of Lago's
oldtimers can remember.
Lionel Dean, of the Garage, and Mrs.
Dean celebrated their silver wedding
anniversary March 19. They were mar-
ried at Princes Town, Trinidad, in 1918.
For more than 13 of those 25 years, Mr.
Dean has been an employee. He started
working at the Garage in 1929.

L.C. Miller, zone supervisor in the M.

for scheduling necessary maintenance
and repair work at the Poly Plant in or-
der to reduce shutdown time to a mini-
mum. On March 17 he received an ini-

G.L. MacNutt, assistant general fore-
man at the High Pressure Stills, sug-
gested that a cracking coil bubble tower
be utilized as a temporary absorber dur-

He also was awarded Fls. 50 on March
These are two excellent samples of the
type of thinking that is going to create
a flood of aviation gasoline and help
beat the Axis. Suggestions have been

NEW APPRENTICE COURSES
FOR ARUBAN BOYS TO START
It was announced recently that, in
view of the success of the apprentice
course for Aruban boys over the past
few years, two new apprentice groups
will be formed to start work early in
May. Apprentices will be selected for the
Mechanical Apprentice Program and the
Process Apprentice Program. The pa-
rish schools throughout the island will
be contacted as in previous years, and
recommended candidates will be inter-
viewed at the schools.
Apprentice courses are planned to give
Aruban boys between the ages of 14 and
18, who have completed the sixth grade
or higher in the local schools, the op-
portunity to learn English and extend
their knowledge of arithmetic and other
vocational subjects. Aside from class-
room instruction, they will be familiariz-
ed with the refinery and with industrial'
phases of the job. The training is di-
vided so that each individual is in class
for two hours and on assigned jobs in
the various departments for six hours
Boys who meet the above require-
ments and are interested in being con-
sidered for this program should apply
through their local parish schools. Ap-
plications also may be made in person
at the plant classrooms on Friday, April
2, and Saturday, April 3, from 7 to 10,
oil companies, and various sports organ-
izations, including the Kwiek Club and
Curaqao Sport Club, were present as Mr.
L.C. Kwartsz, oldest member of the
Club, raised the flag.
The building was erected by contrac-
tors, but all other work, such as electric
wiring, water piping, painting and de-
corations, was done by the Club mem-
A sports field is already available for
hockey, softball and football. Eventually
additional facilities will be provided for
basketball, tennis and volley ball, as well
as water sports. Ping pong and other
sports may be played indoors

FOOD IS AMMUNITION, TOO!
This is a different kind of war. It used to be that
a list of vital war materials could be confined to certain
metals, minerals and materials which everyone took for
granted as necessary on the fighting front. But now the
fighting front is everywhere not only on the battle-
grounds and the world's bloody oceans, but in the
factory, on the farm, in the office and in the home.
And chief among the fighting materials, more important
even than guns or bullets or oil, is FOOD.
Here in Aruba we have been fortunate in our
supply of the things for which other parts of the world
are starving. The supply lines have been held open by
brave men of the sea, who have risked their lives in
bringing us the meat, the flour, the eggs, and the hun-
dred other items that we take almost for granted. And
we have been fortunate, too, in our proximity to the
fertile lands of the Caribbean, from which we have drawn
quantities of sugar, butter, coffee, salt and many other
And we must not waste a scrap of it! The food we
have is part of a precious hoard which must be used
wisely and well if there is to be sufficient for all who
must be fed in this famine- and war-sticken world. Every
morsel of food that is wasted here represents the wasted
use of time and effort and materials which are needed
in the fight for world freedom.
Aruba is already doing its part in producing am-
munition-its oil is fighting and winning battles for the
United Nations all over the world. Let's do even more
by saving ammunition by eliminating waste of that most
important of all ammunition. FOOD!!

You don't have to be an Edison before you tell the

think our ideas don't amount to much because they're
not going to shake the world. And that's where we're
wrong because, while the genius builds a reservoir, it's
the average you and me that figures out a dripless faucet.
So think it over and send in your ideas!
