Boy Scouts "Take Over" Plant fcr One Day -. ....
The first Boy Scout Day made refinery officials out of
Boy Scouts June 22, when five young men of the Scout
troop spent the day assisting in running the plant, "sit-
;ting in" with five supervisors in various phases of the
operations. In what Scout leaders hope to make an annual
custom, similar to that in the United States where
Scouts often take over city management for a day, the
five boys were chosen from the troop of 24 on the basis
of their progress in Scouting during the past year.
The picture at top right shows the preliminaries, with
James Faris, Chairman of the Scout Committee, speaking
on Scout ideals to a meeting of Scouts, Scout leaders, and
Company officials the day before the plan was carried
out. In the front row from left to right are Eugene
Kimler, who spent the day in T.S.D., John Ritsher, assign-
ed to the Marine department, Walter Buchholtz, who
worked in Personnel, Oscar Fuchs and Willard Haun-
schild, Cub Scout leaders, and Forrest Forbes, who was
assigned to Executive Management. Not visible in the
picture are Willem Prins, Scout who was assigned to the
Operating department, Wilbur Hough, Scout leader, Frank
Parisi and Albert Clark, assistant leaders, John Opdyke,
Cub leader, and Forrest Hayes and Sam Evans, members
of the Scout Committee.
The picture at upper left shows Scout Forrest Forbes
going over Management problems with Acting General
Manager F. S. Campbell. At lower right Scout John
Ritsher enters a launch for a survey of the harbor with
J.M.B. Howard, left, and Capt. W. L. Thomas, right, of
the Marine department.
The Scouts' big day ended with the entire troop visiting
a U. S. Navy escort vessel.

War Need Rushes Cat Cracker Turnaround
Strongly resembling a busy anthill from as many as 500 men working on it
in a single 24-hour period, Lago's Cat Cracker was "turned around" in 14 days
last month, a total of 61,000 man-hours. The job was very much rushed since
it fell within the 60-day period when military officials said the need for aviation
gasoline would be most critical.
The repairs followed a record-making performance of exactly six months of
continuous operation, the longest initial run of any cat cracker, and exceeded by
only one plant on a subsequent run (Baton Rouge, which was forced down after
six months and one day).
Repair conditions on the great still, after six months of wearing operation
at high temperatures and pressures, presented all the problems that had been
encountered on other units in the U.S.A., but on a lesser scale. Experts sent here
to assist in the turnaround, and who have seen other cat crackers repaired, ex-
pressed themselves as amazed at the milder conditions of wear, and whether the
cause was superior workmanship or smoother operation is not known.
New types of equipment and no previous experience on what conditions might
be found inside made the job greatly more complicated than the ordinary still
turnaround, though it was studied and mapped out weeks in advance. Material
was prefabricated wherever
possible, and supplies needed
were handy at the site before
the oil and catalyst stopped 4
flowing. Cooperation between
all the crafts involved did much
toward getting the .Cat Cracker
back into operation in minimum
SAFETY RECORD: PERFECT.
In 61,000 man-hours needed to re-
pair the Cat Cracker for further
service, not one lost-time injury
was sustained on the unit. Caution
takes much of the credit, with as-
sistance from goggles, dust respi-
rators, safety hats, lifebelts, and
other safety equipment.

ped the Cat Cracker's record run last
January 28. Stresses made it sag, and a
matter of hours before its normal sup-
port gave way (which would have forc-
ed the still to come down) it was shored
up with timbers which held it in place.
3 This is the top, 20 stories high. One
of these pipes, which carry gas and ca-
talyst out of the huge chamber on top,
wore through three days before the
come-down, and finished out the run
with a welded patch.
4 Taken almost straight up, this pic-
ture shows the interior of the Cat Plant,
a maze of beams and platforms. (Circle
shows a high-up welder).
5 "What goes up must come down"
and this winchman, on the fourteenth
floor, takes care of it. Some of the ma-
terial was hauled up and down by the
elevator, some by this steam winch.
6 This is the interior of the precipita-
tor, which recovers catalyst from the flue
gas before it goes out the stack. The
grids on the sides of the picture collect
the catalyst electrically, and at regular
intervals the "hammers" in the center
swing over and knock the powder free,
to fall back into hoppers. Under the
best operating conditions there is a loss
of $1,000 per day worth of catalyst, and
when starting up the unit, or when
trouble is encountered, this loss may
run as high as $5,000.

R.C.A. Drops Two Games
To Curagao's Best
The R.C.A. squad invaded Curacao
early this month to meet two of Cura-
qao's best, S.U.B.T. and Jong Holland.
The opening game July 1, with S.U.B.T.
(last time they met it was a scoreless
tie) resulted this time in a win for the
Curacao 1941 champs.
The first score for either side was
made during the second half by Frans
Kelkboom, R.C.A. centerforword, but
Curacao soon tied it up. Aruba's second
point was scored after a fast combina-
tion in the forward line by Tommy
Tromp, R.C.A. left wing, after a mis-
carried effort of Chomi Quant's bounced
off the poles right into Tommy's never-
missing feet. Curacao soon tied it up
again, however, and made the last goal
in the closing minutes to win 3 2.
The following day saw R. C. A.
matched against Jong Holland and was
a win for the current Curacao champs,
2 0. Ccuracao was constantly on the
attack, without giving Aruba's rear-
guard time to breathe, though they stop-
ped everything (almost) that came their
way, Jossy Quant doing much of the
heavy work. A penalty gave Aruba a
chance in the first half, but Kelkboom
missed by an inch. Curaqao scored once
in each half to win, Boyer and Pardo
making the goals.

Jong Holland Tops New League
And Wins From Curaao Champs
Jong Holland is the first champion of
the new ten-team Aruba Sport Unie,
taking the title in the final held at
the Lago Sport Park July 4. Before a
large holiday crowd they finished the
knockout competition with a 3 0
victory over San Nicolas Juniors.
In the semi-finals, Jong Holland had
eliminated Lago Heights while the San
Nicolas Juniors were putting La Fama
out of the running.
Two Jong Holland football teams met
June 23 on the new field at Santa Cruz,
with the Aruba XI bearing that name
winning 2 to 0 from the Curagao version.
Aruba's Jong Holland led in the first
half, after Fanfa Croes, Santa Cruz'
right wing, booted in the first one.
Ismero, inside right, increased this to 2
in the second half, and the Arubans held
this lead to the end.
The second game in the series with
the visiting team ended abruptly when
a member of the local team refused to
abide by a decision of the umpire, and
the game was stopped during the second
half. The first half had ended with a
1 1 tie, Paulino of the Aruba Juniorb
making the initial score, and Curacao
tieing it up with a penalty.
Curagao's expert football players seem
to be well-spread among the teams, judg-
ing by the way the championship is kick-
ed around. Last year the Jong Holland
squad (see above) held the top spot,
in 1942 it was Independiente, and in 1941
it was S.U.B.T.
A tie that seemed impossible to break
was the San Nicolas Juniors La Fama
game of July 1. Nothing to nothing at
the finish, they played a seven-minute
extra period and were still 0 0. Each
team then took three penalty kicks, and
all six were good, leaving them still tied.
In desperation they finally drew lots.
and the San Nicolas Juniors won.

The July 4 holiday saw a team of Lago
All-Stars shut out by the Pturto Rican
troops in the Sport Park, in a game
where errors told the tale.
The soldiers scored three times in the
opening innings, all on errors, without
having made a hit. Lago collected only
one hit during the game. while the Army
was garnering a total of four.
Lago had two scoring chances with
men on second base, once with no outs.
but failed to cash in. Polo Laveist pitch-
ed the first two innings, Carlos Buntin
the third, and Gaston Arrindell took
charge of the mound for the remainder
of the game.

a suitcase for first in the accurate throw from -
