Caribbean Food Purchases
Ease Shortages of Foods
Normally Bought in U.S A.

Prices Not Based on Cost But
On Current Lower USA Prices

Every newspaper and newsmagazine
received here recently tells of serious
shortages in many important food
items in the United States, caused by
the heavy demands of Lend-Lease and
the armed forces. It is inevitable that
some of these shortages are reflected in
the supplies available at the Company's
commissaries; many of them, however,
have beer reduced or eliminated through
developing local sources of food.
Started last Spring when the difficul-
ties of securing some foods in the.United
States first arose, the program has now
reached a point where varieties and
quantities available can be kept at al-
most pre-war levels on many items,
both essential and non-essential.
In nearly all cases the cost of these
local purchases is appreciably higher
than if they were made in the U.S., but
these higher costs are not reflected in
the employees' food bill. The selling
price of all such items is based on cur-
rent U.S. prices, and the Company
absorbs all costs above this level.
Venezuela is one of the chief sources
at present. Butter, eggs, tomatoes, and
coffee are a large part of its contribu-
tion to Aruba's food supply, and with
one or two exceptions all fresh fruits
and vegetables have come from there in
recent months. The coffee sold at the
commissaries is specially blended for
tago, to match as closely as possible
the samples of Maxwell House coffee
which were sent to Venezuela for that
purpose some time ago. Also received
from there is a limited supply of ice
cream mix which compares very favor-
ably with the mix bought from United
States suppliers. Potatoes were imported
from that country for a short time, but
the Venezuelan government banned fur-
ther exports. (Similar export restric-
tions have been experienced in Surinam,
which will not permit exportation of
brown rice). The Company has made re-

Villain Acquitted in Mock Trial

Aruba's Rain By

A manslaughter court trial with all the trimmings was
a novel feature of the Lago Heights Club's entertainment
June 25, when Asseez Bacchus was acquitted of a "trump-
ed up" charge for manslaughter. He represented a drug-
gist who was accu-ed of causing the death of a patron
through administering ,an overdose of morphine.
Percy Branch (left foreground) was the prosecuting
attorney who lost the case. He was assisted by Sam Via-
pree. Defense attorney was Roy Bishop (right fore-
ground) assisted by Ralph Lohar. The judge (at far left
on stage) was played by Bipat Chand. Others in the
picture are jurors and court attendants. The Registrar
was Frank Gilkes, and the Sergeant at Arms was Leslie

Dining Hall employees gathered June 25 to say goodbye
to Charles Moore, Steward, who left for the United Stites
the following day. The picture shows Mr. Moore (third
from left) answering a toast which was proposed by
head waiter Pedrito Wilson, at extreme right. The small
table holds gifts presented to Mr. Moore, including a
watch, pen and pencil set, and brief case.

The Military Life

(As seen by one who knows
very little about it!)

'30 '31 '32 '33 '34 '35 '36 '37 '38 '39 '40 '41 '42
With the season for rain just around the corner, and
with that precious commodity needed throughout the is-
land as never before, statistics from records kept by the
Laboratory for the last 14 years may help to show
gardeners, farmers, and just plain water drinkers what
the chances are for a season that would please them, if
not construction men.
In this chart (designed by George LeMaire of the
Training Division) the dividing line represents the mid-
point of the rain year; over the 13-year period shown,
that is, the amount of rain above the line approximately
equals the amount below.
Rain-wanting optimists may lean on the law of aver-
ages, drawing comfort from the apparent succession of
five-year intervals between peak years. With 1933 and
1938 producing sizeable amounts of rainfall, 1943 could
again be the fifth-year to relieve the island's serious
water shortage.
E diagrama aki ta mustra e cantidad di lawa cu a yobe
aki na Aruba cada afia durante e ultimo 13 afianan. Mien-
tras mas largo e lineanan ta, mas yubia a kai den e aia
ey. Asina nos por mira cu hopi awa a yobe na 1933, i
atrobe na 1938, mientras cu durante e period di cinco
aina entire 1933 i 1938 tawatin poco yubia. Si e period I
aki di cinco aria continue, anto na 1943 awa mester yobe

Just before dawn, United States war and troop ships
will approach a certain enemy island. Our warships will
begin an intense bombardment while our troops race for
shore in invasion barges. Simultaneously, the sky will
blossom with parachutes, :and ten minutes later our men
will have the surprised enemy's airfield. Mopping up will
then take place, and not too many days later you will
smile as you read headlines of a United Nations victory.
But will you? Or will the enemy's "bits and pieces"
.system have done its job? You see...... last week the wife
of a shipping clerk in an Iowa drug house remarked to a
friend: "We're staying home tonight-Al's tired. He
shipped 80 cases of quinine to the Army today". And
last night a friend of a friend of a soldier said to her
.girl friend: "Helen heard that Earl hasn't written because
his arm's been swollen from inoculations. Funny, he was
inoculated before, when he first joined the paratroops".
And in a lot of other places a lot of other people talked
about their jobs, their friends, and what they were doing.
And a few of their remarks were heard by the enemy.
Many more were not overheard the enemy iEn't every-
where, doesn't hear everything. But their agents' and
sympathizers' instructions are "Report everything you
hear don't try to judge its value". And now today
a man is studying those tiny "bits and pieces", those
seemingly harmless scraps of information from all parts
of the country. "Quinine for the Army the tropics, eh?
And 80 cases means a lot of men". Two days later: "...pa-
ratroopers inoculated..." "Now why? Must have been
Inoculated before, why again? Expecting to encounter
new diseases, perhaps tropical?" Iowa City:: "...heard
man m movie talking about neighbor's son Tom. Being
trained in invasion tactics in Texas... neighbor hasn't
heard from son lately..." "Hasn't heard lately maybe
le's sailed".
From the files under "Sailings", a report of two weeks
ago. Denver-"... a woman said her nephew, John Wy-
cowski, had mEiled". From the files under "List of Men
Whose Divisions are Known" "...heard girl ask friend,
Stella Wycowski, if she'd heard from brother lately.
.Stella W. replied 'Yes, he's in Texas with 29th Infantry' ".
"So the 29th of Texas has sailed.... and another soldier
in Texas, with special invasion training, seems to have
sailed, too looks like one and the same thing. One division
-of invasion troops sailing.... quinine shipped.... paratroop-
ers inoculated.... could they be going after one of our
tropical islands?"
And so he continues, studying, sifting a steady flow of
'bits and pieces of information. Many are useless, few
mean much in themselves. But the men who study them
are working on huge jig-saw puzzles some are never
.finished, the missing pieces don't come in. But they don't

have to be. "Can't find out which island, or exactly when,
but it must be soon. And it's in the tropics so It has
to be one of these six". So the word goes out. And in that
carefully planned attack about which nobody talked
(very much) many of our ships are sunk by enemy
subs lying in wait. Others of our men are thrown back
into the sea by forewarned superior forces... our para-
troopers and planes are caught by a swarm of enemy
fighters. And that's what you read about-unsmiling-in
your morning paper.
Ordinary little facts, you see, the kind of things any-
one might know, such as a soldier's location; where he is,
where he's going, how or when ... may supply the missing
pieces in the enemy's jig-saw puzzle.
And not only soldiers the Lume goes for planes
and ships (and double for convoys) and their crews. And
for production, too, and even for ship sinkings -- "It was
terrible we saw them from the shore. The men came
swimming and rowing in all day". (The enemy wasn't
sure he'd sunk that ship).
The enemy must know about those things, too, you'd
think. But that's wrong the enemy won't know if
those hundreds of people don't talk. In 1918 a German
submarine was sunk at Scapa Flow in Scotland. Its cap-
tain had been ordered to attack the British Grand Fleet
there. Yet the Grand Fleet had left Scapa Flow a year
before as all Scotland knew. But the Germans didn't
know. Because the Scots hadn't talked.
The enemy can't be everywhere, you see. Something big
may be happening thousands know about it and
it just happens there's not an enemy around. So the
enemy's depending on his "bits and pieces" system for
finding out about it later. But he won't find out ... if we
don't tell him.
J. Edgar Hoover, FBI Director, says: "Certain key
word will tell you what types information our enemies
tire especially anxious to get hold of. Read these key
words... study them... remember them: WHERE HOW
that's only a suggestion of the kind of information our
enemies need. No list would be complete. What would we
like to know about our enemies their men, their train-
ing, their location, their plans, their production? Well,
that's what they want to know about us".
Of course. Just remember this rule:
If you HEAR it from someone don't repeat it.
If you SEE it yourself don't repeat it.
But if you READ it in newspapers or magazines or
hear it on the radio, then it's public property and you
may talk !about it.

The foregoing is an adaptation of "A Personal Message
to the Mothers, Wives, Fathers, Brothers, Sisters ani
Friends of Service Men", issued by the United States
government. No thoughtful person can lightly brush it
aside as "war propaganda", nor can residents of Aruba
protest that it does not apply to them. It applies to
anyone anywhere on the United Nation's side of the line,
and its message is as strong to a Lagoite as it is to
someone living near a munitions factory or an army
camp in the United States or England.
With troops, coastal defenses, production, or ships'
names, cargoes, destinations, and sailing dates, we have
plenty NOT to talk about.

Shortages may develop in this or that imported
food, but the supply of fish, a big staple in Aruba's
diet, is ne\er-ending. The photograph shows a fre-
quent scene at the Cold Storage Plant, with 5,500
pounds of fish, mostly red snappers, being unloaded
from a single truck. These, most popular variety
among cooks here, are caught at a so-called "red
snapper bank" near Venezuela, usually at a depth
of 400 to 500 feet. Average receipts at the Cold
Storage Plant are about two tons every week.

Special Award of FIs. 100

The Special Awards Committee recent-
ly announced an award of Fls. 100 to
A. H. Shaw for a suggestion that will
reduce the shortage of oxygen which
has hampered progress on the CON pro-
ject. His idea of replacing the scarce
caustic potash used in the manufacture
of oxygen with activited alumina which
can be used indefinitely will realize an
increase of 2,000 cylinders per year, and
will save about Fls. 15,000 per year.
The Committee's prize money for the
right ideas is unlimited. Help increase

Begwins Donate Treasury

The Begwin Club, a girls' sport group
which became inactive some time ago,
has turned over its entire treasury to
the Princess Irene Committee. This do-
nation of Fls. 150 will be of substantial
aid to the Committee in carrying out
their war work.
In acknowledging it, Mrs. W. de
Brauw, Vice-President, said "We receiv-
ed your very welcome gift of Fls. 150
for the Princess Irene Committee fund.
We are very grateful for your gift...
you .did good work with your gift for
we can always use money so well buy-
ing material".

In one of the hardest-played games
seen at the Sport Park in many months,
the Lago All-Stars and the Schutters of
Sabaneta fought each other to a stand-
still before a huge holiday crowd July 4.
The final score was 4 4.
With many of the island's experts in
the lineup the game was fast and furi-
ous every moment, and at times the
field resembled a Tunisian battlefield.
The Schutters are reported to be the
island's best team this season, but the
Lagoites, with their golee injured near
the last of the game, came within an ace
of taking the game.
The Schutters, at first keeping Lagr.
more or less continuously on the defen-

sive, scored first after 15 minutes of
play, but five minutes later Lago'sE Oti-
lio Paulina took a corner ball on his
head, sending it cleanly between the
goalposts. The half ended at 1 1.
In the second half, Franken of the
Schutters scored (Franken brothers
were on both teams), then Becker of
Lago tied it at 2 2. Becker scored
again later, and Hans Nahar of Lago
added another one, to make it 4 2
for Lago. Loepstock of the Sabaneta
soldiers killed the All-Star's hopes, how-
ever, kicking a penalty and later scor-
ing again to tie it up at 4 4.
Being a friendly game, no extra
periods were played.

Fun and speed were
mixed in equal propor-
tions at the Lago Heights
field July 5, in an athletic
jamboree that filled the
afternoon with a great
variety of races. The pro-
gram had 17 events, and

Not as a test on the relative merits
of marriage and single blessedness, but
simply as a sporting contest, the bache-
lors and married men of Lago Heights
fought it out on the football field June
20 before a couple of hundred specta-
tors. The ball and chain men won the
toss, chose to play against the wind, and
made the first goal. The bachelors then
tied it up at 1 1, 'and the half ended
at 2 2. The b. and c. men booted in
four more during the second half, mak-
ing it 6 2 for marriage. For some
reason not fully explained, the bache-
lors were given another ten-minute
period to vindicate themselves, but no
more scoring was done. A wedding ring
was again made the test for team
membership the following week, when a
team of Esoville's married men challeng-
ed the victors. This game ended at
2- 2.

Old rivals met June 27 when R.C.A.
defeated the Aruba Juniors 5 2 to
finish the 1943 Aruba Football Bond's
first half. While R.C.A. has taken the
championship for the last five years in
succession, the winner is anybody's
guess this year, since the champs have
been beaten so far by Hollandia and the
