"Let's Get Tough"
"War is a tough, grim affair, and I think very like-
y the people a, a whole could stand being toughen-
Nd to the realities involved. I do not mean that we
nust be merely physically tough. We must be tough
n our thinking, tough in our ability to make the
necessaryy sacrifices (about which so much is said),
ough at the conference fable, and in addition
ough with ourselves.
In other words, I think we should be tough about
everythingg that tends to keep us from being tough.
;reat countries were founded and have been
maintainedd by rugged people, and it is my belief
hat the present generation must be equally rugged
o preserve them. It is not enough for that charac-
eristic to be confined to the members of our Armed
forces .
Admiral E. J. King, Commander-in-Chief
of the United States Fleet

The handsome young soldier is Lt.
Robert Mundlnger, son of R o b e r t
Mundinger of the Acid & Edeleanu
Plant. He graduated from Lago High
School in 1939, then went on to
Princeton, where he finished early this
year. He entered a tank destroyer unit
first, but his excellent school record
and his command of four languages
(English, Spanish, French, and Portu-
guese) landed him in the Overseas
Strategic Services. Recent word from
him was that he was about to start
overseas.

It is hoped to take advantage of an

The shaft, which will be six feet in
diameter, will go down 80 or 90 feet, to
bout three feet below sea level. If the
ater that comes in is 'useable, a small
amber will be dug at the bottom of
ie well, to house pumps; there will b.o
o structure on the surface, only a con-
rete slab.
So far, in addition to phosphate, pre-
minary digging has brought up an un-
sual variety of red coral not often seen
ere.



Over-subscribed nearly 20 times, the
ie million florin bond issue on which
te Curaqao government received bids
Lrly this month drew Fls. 19,200,000
requests from prospective investors.
It is probable that small investors who
quested bonds up to Fls. 1,000 will
ceive the total amount asked for, while
ose who requested larger amounts will
tcessarily receive only five to ten per
nt of the amount desired.
The Lago Thrift Foundation, which
Ld entered a bid for Fls. 500,000 of the
,nds, will receive Fls. 74,300 worth.



The radio-telephone service which now
iks Curagao with any telephone in the
united States was inaugurated Decem-
*r 20, and opened for public use the
Ilowing day.
His Excellency Governor P. Kasteel,
minister P. Kerstens of the Netherlands
tbinet, and Rear-Admiral T. E. Chand-
r of the U.S. Navy were the first to
;e the new service. Governor Kasteel
Id Mr. Kerstens held conversations with
e Netherlands Ambassador at Wash-
Aton, and Admiral Chandler spoke
th the fleet commander in Washington.

This One Didn't Get


Away!


Big as a man and considerably heavier
is this grouper, a 229-pound fish shown
being balanced by Ezekiel Joseph of thP
Cold Storage. It is a happy day for an
Aruban fisherman when he brings in
one of these, since a mammoth like this
brings over FIs. 100.

Aki nos ta mira Ezekiel Joseph, emplea-
do di Cold Store, na e moment cu e ta

Sunday rates are 18 and 6.
Depending on the receipt of additional
equipment, it is hoped to establish simi-
lar radio-telephone connections in the
future between Curagao and Aruba, Bo-
naire, and Venezuela.

It wasn't a "white" Christmas in Aru-
ba. but that cold rain Christmas Eve
helped with the illusion. At least it was
a wet one: including Christmas Eve and
Day there was .32 inches of rain, which
though it isn't of flood proportions, is
more than fell in the entire month of
December, 1941. According to the keeper
of the records, last year's Christmas was
just as inconsiderate to those wanting to
move around visiting friends, with .22
inches of rain.
This year's December, up to the 27th.
had yielded 1.45 inches, while the aver-
age for all Decembers (back to 1929) is
3.18 inches.


Employee Receives Credit for
Unusual Assist to War Effort

Reproduced below are letters of com-
mendation and appreciation received by
Anton Federle of the Utilities depart-
ment from naval officials in this area:

"Dear Sir:

It has been reported to me that you
made the first report of the S O S call
from the torpedoed banker, this report
being based on the signal from your
automatic radio which you keep set in
your room for S O S signals.
It is with satisfaction that I have to
inform you that the few minutes gained
in getting rescue vessels underway may
have been sufficient to materially aid in
the rescue of survivors and the protec-
tion of the rescuing ship.
Your cooperation in this matter is
much appreciated by this command, and
it is hoped that you will always report
any informations you may receive to the
Operations Duty Officer immediately.

Sincerely,

Commodore S. A. Clement"


"Dear. Sir:

Commodore Clement has advised me of
your most commendable action incident
to the torpedoed tanker, and I hasten to
extend to you my thanks and apprecia-
tion. It is most gratifying to know that
you, of your own volition and through
your personal willingness to contribute
something extra to the war effort, have
thus materially aided in the rescue of
these survivors.
Please be assured that your continued
valuable services will be received with
gratitude.

Sincerely,

Rear-Admiral T.E. Chandler"


IT'S DYNAMITE

One gallon of gasoline is equivalent
to 100 pounds of dynamite.
Gasoline vaporizing in air gives off
more than 100 times its bulk, and
converts more than 1,500 times its
own volume of air into an explosive
mixture. Ignition will cause the
mixture to expand in a flash to 4,000
times its volume and a fire almost
invariably follows.
Don't store gasoline!

Speaking of ten-year service, a much-
enduring record book at the Receiving
& Shipping office is into its tenth year
now. It has enough blank pages, to go
another 20 years, and having weathered
the first ten it may go that long. Poss-
ibly the children of present gaugers will
be making entries in it in 1963.
Started on October 15, 1934, the note-
book (which is the ordinary paper-cover
variety) contains a record of all the
water imported by the Company since
then, for a grand total of 785 shipments
up to last week. Not all, of course, is
drinking water, a portion being refinery
water.
The book can easily jog the memories
of old-timers, recalling ships whose
names were once household words here
but which Aruba hasn't seen in recent
years. Such are the Thalia, Pan Scandia,
I.C. White, Charles Pratt, Standard, Al-
lan Jackson, Cerro Ebano, Svithiod, Den
Haag, William Green, and others that
were well-known once to vacationists.
Some are still in service, others now rest
on the bottom, victims of enemy action.
The water they brought came, not
from the ends of the earth, but from a
good many places in between. Some of


More original costumes than have ever seen the light of Aruba's day, together
with more novel hazards than ever before tormented golfers, were twin feature,
of the "Helizapoppin Tournament" at the Aruba Golf Club December 19. Showr
above are most of the "costume plus golf" prizewinners, chosen after the lasi
air jets, water squirts, tomatoes, rand blank cartridges had done their worst t(
peace of mind and golf scores. Left to right are Kenneth Repath, Neil Griffin

foursome in the inset picture includes D. I. Maxwell, Mrs. Coy Cross,
Jack Souder, and Mrs. Neil Griffin.


the places that have supplied water for
Lago's tanks are France, Germany, and
Portugal, in Europe, Brazil, Argentina,
Venezuela, and Panama, in South Ame-
rica, and Trinidad, Jamaica, and Cuba.
Farther north, shipments are listed from
Norfolk, Newport, New York, New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Boston, Alabama,
and Louisiana. Lago's water tanks are
nothing if not cosmopolitan.

Aruba Loses One, Ties One, in
Football Series With Cura4ao


Aruba's football fans received a treat
December 11 and 12, when the Curacao
official team played a two-game series
at the Sport Park against the Aruba of-
ficial team, and at the same time helped
to swell the fund for the Orinoco flooc
victims with admission charges.
The first of the series was a win for
Curaqao, 2 1. Things happened fast
after the kick-off, with the teams shap-
ing up evenly, but the Curaqao squad
soon took the initiative, and their inside
right and left wing scored to make it
Curaqao 2, Aruba 0, at the end of the
half.
The second half was a thriller that
kept the bleacher-filling crowd standing
and the sidelines crowd forging across
the lines in excitement, with Aruba on
the offensive and assailing their oppo-
nents' goal constantly. Charlie Becker,
Aruba's right wing, netted in a score,
with the Curacao backs defending their
goal in every effort to hang on to their
lead. After this score Aruba's spirit in-
creased, but all their tries were fruitless,
and the final count read Curagao 2,
Aruba 1.
In the second game, played before an
even larger crowd, changes were made
in the Aruba forward line with Chomy
Quandt replacing "Chas" as centerfor-
ward, Paulino replacing Becker at right
wing, and "Zelin" and Chirino occupying
inside right and inside left. The game
was a tie, with the teams battling hard
on a difficult muddy and slippery field.
The ball was soaked, shoes and stockings
were covered with a layer of mud, but
the game went on. Though Aruba had
several chances to score during the first


half (notably by Quant and Paulino),
they could not get the ball past the
keeper, and it ended 0 0.
During the second half Jossy Quant,
Hendrik Kelkboom, and Gooi Franken
skillfully fought off Curagao's attacks.
Aruba moved in, with Chirino intercept-
ing the ball and passing it to Chomy
Quant, who drove it in but was halted at
the entrance of the goal, Paulino then
scoring Aruba's point. In the last few
minutes of play Aruba's rear guard
fought hard to save the lead, but Cura-
cao's centerhalf booted in the tieing
score at the referee's final whistle.
Immediately following the game the
teams lined up in the presence of Lt.
Governor Wagemaker, who was an in-
terested spectator, while Lieutenant E.
deJongh presented the cup to the Cura-
gao winners.


December 12
Labor Camp
Arend, Oranjestad


There was friendly rivalry between
Eagle and Lago December 12 when
cricketers from the Labor Camp, under
skipper B. Quow, journeyed to the other
end of the island. The game began with
the Lago boys taking the field and for
the first two overs the wicket was per-
fect, but a rain put Eagle at a disadvant-
age, and the whole team fell for 57,
Anthony bagging six wickets.
After refreshments, skipper Simeon
led his men to the field, while D. Simon
and M. John occupied the crease. Bailey
later joined John, and in no time the
score climbed to 61 for 2. With Simeon
bagging seven wickets, San Nicolas was
dispatched for 97. Outstanding score, M.
John, 37.
