Aruba's second prominent visitor in
as many months was Mrs. Franklin
Delano Roosevelt, wife of the President
of the U.S.A., who stopped here for two
hours March 21 during a tour of military
installations in the Caribbean area.
Mrs. Roosevelt addressed enlisted men
and officers at Dakota Field, Sabaneta
Camp, and the Naval Barracks in the
concession, and paid brief visits to the
UT.S.O. and the Sabaneta military hospi-
tal.

Many Lagoites had an opportunity of

finery and Colony. She is shown beloi
as she acknowledged the cheers of a
large group of Colony residents at the
Commanding Naval Officer's quarters.

Employees in the News


In the Aruba Rotary Club's election
of officers last week, three Lago men
were named to serve for the year start-
ing July 1. Fred Beaujon of the Ac-
counting department is the new Presi-
dent, John Gray of the Esso Club is Se-
cretary, and Robert Heinze of the Acid
Plant is a Director.
Other officers elected were Benny
Henriquez, former Cashier here, as
Treasurer, and Osbert Wynn of Eagle
as Vice-President.

A wristwatch and a pen and pencil
set were parting gifts from Laboratory
employees to Joseph Marathon last week,
when he left the Company to return to
his home in St. Martin.
"Sparky", as he was best known,
started in the Laboratory February 10,
1929, as a sample boy, and had advanced
to Junior Chemist at the time of leaving.



A class in Papiamento started early
this month, with supervisors of the Ac-
counting, Personnel, and M. & C. offices
studying with instructors John Pandellis
and Eugenius Hassell of the Training
Division. The group meets twice a week
in one-hour sessions, and will continue
for several months.
The present class is designed not
only to teach the Aruban language to
those enrolled, but also to act as an ex-
periment in determining the best way to
organize future Papiamento classes for
English-speaking employees.



Na principio di e luna aki, un klas
di Papiamento a cuminza unda hefenan

party music in the bright-colored hor
for the last 35 years.
The caja di music, like its first cou

first three brought to Aruba; it arri,

broken strings as the only part need

There are between 30 and 40 caja

Each of these rolls contains eight dif-

in which tune is going to come out of the

Aruba. Their popularity rises and falls;
occasionally musical instruments sup-
plant them as a dance accompaniment,
as they did a short time ago, but the
music box always comes back, and is
very popular with party-throwers at
present.
In the type of mechanical music it
produces, it is similar to the hurdy-
gurdy that was common on big-city
streets in the United States 15 or 20
years ago, but produces its sounds in a
different way. In the hurdy-gurdy, the
crank turns a cylinder that operates a
bellows, that acts on a series of reeds
that produce the music. In Aruba's mu-
sic box, on the other hand, the music is
made by hammers striking strings, as in
a piano. Details are shown in the smal-
ler photograph. Hundreds of headless
nails, closely packed, are driven into the
wooden roll, with about an eighth of an

Lago Heights and Jong Holland
Xl's in Double Tie for Trophy


Playing for a cup put up by the Jon"
Holland sports club of Santa Cruz, that
team and the Lago Heights footballers
played to a 1 1 tie score at the Lago
Heights field March 18. It was the third
game of the series for the trophy, and
each squad had one victory. The game
of the 18th was to decide the series, but
because of the tie a fourth will have to
be played at a future date.
Jong Holland led in the third game,
with Esmero Capriles making a goal
shortly after the second half began, but
Leyland Fernands scored a penalty a few
minutes before the end, to keep Lago
Heights in the running.
See bottom of page for a photograph
of the two teams.
