vn Sixty-3even houses

A contract was awarded to Ramon A.
Montaner, General Contractor, March 28
for the construction of 67 houses cost-
ing over Fls. 450,000, according to a
Home Building Foundation announce-
ment late last week.
The new hoauing, representing a unit
of 67 Essoville homes of a larger type,
will be on a plot of land directly north
of and bordering on the Lago Sport
Park. A name for the new development
is under consideration.
The street layout will be in confor-
mance with the Government's plan for
the entire area, and the Government
will put in the streets and sidewalks for
the Home Building Foundation.
All of the houses will be of the six-
room- type, with modern sanitary fac-
ilities, and are designed to take full ad-
vantage of Aruban trade winds. Con-
struction will begin immediately, but
material shortages may prevent com-
pletion before early in.1947.
Employees interested in securing in-
formation on the new hou-ing should
see the secretary of the Home Building
Foundation, Fred Beaujon of the
Cashier's Office, in the Main Office
At the same time the H.B.F. an-
nounced that, in view of the large num-
ber of employees who wish to purchase
homes, a further study is being made of
additional areas in which houses may
be built by the H.B.F. in the future.

Underground Fighters Here En Route to States

Tnvse seven Norwegians, formerly of the underground in Norway, were pictured during their
stay in Aruba while waiting for a ship to take them to college in the States. They are, left to
right, Gunnar Biune, Leif Haug, Rolf Ottesen. Odd Johnsen, Reidar Lunde, Kristian Tonning, and
Paul Juul-Olsen.
E Liete hombornan aki tabata miembro di Ondergrond Norwedji, cu a bring Alemannan na secret

Smoke poured out of a Bachelor
Quarters door one day last week, in a
big enough cloud to make one passer-by
think the building was on fire.
There was no fire, however just
seven young Norwegians in transit here,
catching up on cigarettes after the lean
war years with little or no tobacco. The
seven were officers in the Norwegian
underground, and are now on their way
to American universities where they
have scholarships as a reward for their
war services.
The group related interesting tales of
the resistance movement from first-
hand experience. Resistance did not
spring up overnight, they said, but took
careful planning and development. The
first step was underground newspapers
to counter Nazi propaganda and to in-
form people of the war's progress. The
next stage was sabotage.
Norway was the scene of much of
Europe's advanced research in "heavy

Thrift Plan for Laker Crews
Similar to Refinery's Plan

The Lake tankers' crews (unlicensed
personnel) became eligible for the Lago
Thrift Plan April 1, with contributions
starting on that date, according to an
announcement at the first meeting of
the tankermen's advisory committee last
The plan for the ships' guilder-paid
personnel, which because of various
unusual factors has been under con-
sideration for over a year, will have the
same provisions as the plan for refinery

Chinese have separate plan
Detail work is nearing completion also
on the "Lago Sterling Thrift Plan", for
Chinese crewmen whose earnings are in
English currency since their services
were contracted for in the London of-
fices of the Company.

Development Co. V.-P.

Before a keen-
ly interested
audience that
filled the Eng-
ineers' Club
building to cap-
acity and spilled
over even to list-
eners outside the
windows, E. V.
Mur phree, vice-
president of S. O.
D., spoke March
16 on "Atomic
Mr. Murphree,
who was cited in
a recent "Time
Magazine" as one
of the most im-
portant figures
in the devel-
opment of the
atomic bomb,
took as his sub-
ject atomic ener_ Fanked by an eq
V. Murphree of
gy as a possible some of the prin
competition to
the oil business, in its application to
transportation and power in general.
In introducing his subject he estim-
ated the amount of uranium now known
in the world as 10,000 tons. This, he
said, is the equivalent of 800-million
barrels of fu.l oil under some limited
conditions, or of 120- billion barrels if
all the uranium could be converted into
heat. The latter figure is six times the
proven oil reserves of the United States.
A pound of normal uranium, which
might cost about eight dollars, is equiv-
alent to 42 barrels of fuel oil, while a
pound of U1235 would equal 6,000 bar-
rels of oil in output of B.T.U.'s.

As a means of producing commercial
power, Mr. Murphree stated that one of
the chief drawbacks to atomic energy is
the enormously heavy shielding needed
to protect human beings against the
harmful effects of neutrons released in
the process. In some stages of the pro-
cess it might be necessary that the
operation be surrounded by six feet of
water, several feet of concrete, an air
space, and thet more concrete, to be
perfectly safe. Obviously, he said, this
condition would prevent its use as a
power factor except in power plants or
on heavy ships, so that dreams of
atomic energy-powered automobiles and
airplanes will probably not be realized.
Commercial development will probab-
ly result if the necessary information is
made available to a sufficient number
of scientists so that the cost of some of
the stages of the process may be great-
ly simplified. Mr. Murphree mentioned
that some of the processes now cost 50
to 100 times what he believes they will
eventually cost after full development.
Such research is very expensive but the
U. S. Government is continuing the dee_
elopmerit. There seems to be no threat
im the near future to the coal and oil
business as a source of primary fuel.

An interesting feature of the question
period following his talk covered the
"secrecy" of the atomic bomb that has
concerned both those that have the
secret and those that do not have it,
ever since the first bomb fell. He con-
firmed the common belief that the only
secret involved is the engineering,
chemistry, and physics "know-how" in-

volved, and that any nation can work
through the problem, given enough
years. He stated that the publication of
the famous Smyth report revealed in-
formation which might save other
nations as much as two years in devel.

Management Committee Meets
To Plan Safe Driving Course

As a part of the plant-wide safety
campaign, a management committee ap-
pointed by L. G. Smith met in the first
of a series of discussions March 14 to
study and develop a training program
for drivers of Company-owned vehicles.
The object of the program will be to
train competent drivers and to refresh
the knowledge of the present drivers.
In the course of the meetings, the
various sources of accidents and
methods for their prevention were dis-
cu3sed, together with types of driving
courses which may eventually be used.
Serving on the Committee are Ho-
ward Daudet of the Training Division
as chairman, Gilbert Uhr of the Labor
Department, Gilbert Brook of the Lago
Police Department, John McCord of the
Garage, and Gordon Owen, of the Safe-
ty Department.

Mr. Murphree stopped here overnight
on his way to South America. Aside
from his talk, he spent his time in stay-
ing out of the higher realms of physics.
Golf, his favorite sport, a flight over the
island, and other entertainment helped
in the relaxation.

Going, Going .... GONE

The purpose of any auction is to get as much money as
possible out of the articles being auctioned. You may re-
ceive a $ 50 article for $ 10 if no one is bidding against you;
on the other hand, you may have to pay 50 to get something
that is actually worth only 10, because someone else wanted
it almost as much as you did, regardless of its value.
The system works no hardship at auctions. The buyer call
never feel cheated when he pays an exorbitant price, be-
cause he himself helped bid it up to that level, and he could
stop bidding whenever he liked. Besides, auctions are rare.
But the thing becomes more serious when meat and
potatoes, socks and shirts, and the hundreds of other es-
sentials to daily living are concerned. One of the principal
reasons for the increased cost of living here is that comp-
etition between merchants does not exist to any great extent
and they are able to sell anything they can import at high
prices. The quantity of goods imported to the island is
limited by the amount of dollar exchange available and not
by consumer demand. This will continue to be true for some
time to come.
One cannot blame a merchant for trying to get as high
prices as possible when his customers are eager to buy any-
thing he has. Therefore, if we wish to keep prices within
the range of our pocketbooks, we must refuse to pay un-
reasonable prices. The Government has established a price
control bureau, but it cannot enforce its regulations if the
customers do not bring specific cases to its attention.
The net result of the present situation is that if we want
to get our money's worth during this period of inflation, we
must buy only what is the most essential, paying no more
than the Government ceiling prices, and refusing to spend
money for other things unless the prices are reasonable.
This takes will power, for money "burns a hole in your
pocket". But if everyone spends his money freely when
goods are scarce, prices are bound to be unreasonable and
everyone suffers from the high cost of living.
Regular trade is not all that is concerned with inflation.
The person who sells some pre-war electrical appliance or
piece of furniture for three times what it cost five years
ago may get a temporary pleasant glow from having re-
ceived something for nothing". What he enjoys is only
an illusion, however, for in his little way he contributes to
upward-spiralling prices, and the extra money he made only
goes to buy something else which costs HIM more than it
Prices are high enough due to post-war conditions let
us not make them higher by bidding against the other
fellow when goods are scarce.

Visitors Prowl Through Sub
On Shakedown Cruise Here

Breaking surface just outside the reef
at noon March 17, the U. S.S. REMORA
put in at San Nicolas harbor, on her
shakedown cruise. The REMORA, one
of the newest submarines that the Navy
has to offer, stayed here for two days
before sailing.
Commissioned in January, 1946 and
manned by a war-wise crew, the RE-
MORA carries the very latest in arm-
ament,radar, and sound detection equip-
ment. While she was tied up at the main
dock visitors were escorted through the
cramped quarters, and marveled at the
tremendous amount of dials, gauges,
signal-lights, batteries, engines, and
push buttons that could be jammed into
such a small space, not to mention a
couple of dozen torpedoes and about 80

Added to the refinery's earlier recognition of wartime work was a
special U. S. Navy Achievement Award recently received and pictured
above. With the award was this letter from the Navy to President
L. 0. Smiths
"It is our distinct pleasure to advise you that the Navy's Certificate
of Achievement has been awarded to your organization. This certi-
ficate signalizes the Navy's recognition of the splendid efforts put
forth by the men and women of your organization in support of the
war production program. We hope you will express to these men and
women the Navy's sincere appreciation and thanks".

cantidad di articulonan import pa e isla aki ta limit pa
via cu dollar ta limits y no pa demand di consumadornan.
Es situaci6n aki lo sigui exist pa algun tempo ainda.
Ningun hende no por culpa un comerciante cu ta trata
di haya prjsnan asina halto posibel pa su articulonan, si
clientenan ta loco pa cumpra kico cu e tin. P'esey si nos
ta desea di tene prijsnan na nivel cu nos portamoneda, nos
mester nenga di paga prijsnan exagerA. Gobierno a esta-
blece un Oficina pa Control di Prijsnan, pero e no por rea-
lizi su doel si clientenan no ta yama nan atenci6n ribs ca-
sonan specific.
E resultado di e situaci6n actual ta haci cu si nos k6
haya balor di nqs placa durante e period di inflaci6n aki,
no mester cumpra solamente to di mas necesario, sin paga
mas cu prijsnan estipul, pa Gobierno y di nenga di gasta
placa pa otro cosnan na prijsnan cu no ta rasonabel.
Pa esaki master di fuerza di boluntad, y si tur hende
distribi placa ora cu articulonan ta scars, ta sigur cu prijs-
nan lo bira inrazonabel y nos tur lo sufri ora cu Costo di
Bida bira mas halto.
Prijsnan ta basta halto caba pa motibo di geurra no
laga nos haci nan subi mas, ofrecierdo di paga mas cu un
otro ora articulonan ta scars.

Cattle in a refinery would be a decided
novelty, but don't be surprised if you
stumble across some soon. While being
unloaded from shipboard in Oranjestad
March 27, some strayed, and were last
seen a day or so later in Savaneta mer-
rily making their way toward Lago. In
fact, the manager of the slaughter-
house inquired at the Lago Police Of-
fice whether any had made their way
through the gates lately, with or with-
out badge pictures.

Laker Returns After Four Years War Service


Lall meets Lana Turner

The thrill of a lifetime came to Mano-
har Lall of M. & C. when he met Lana
Turner while on vacation in Trinidad.
The star stopped and spoke with him
and Archie Stevenson of No. 3 Labor-
atory, at the airport.
Lall reports that they had quite a
little chat and that she posed several
times for him to take pictures, and also
gave them her autograph. Manohar got
his on a pack of cigarettes but Steven-
son used no less than a one-pound note.
The men probably believe now that all
vacations should include an interlude
like this one.

Want to buy a burro ?

Marius del Prado, who handles Per-
sonnel matters at the Main Gate, would
have sold one cheap last week when it
was found calmly standing in the back
of his car parked in front of the Lago
Police Office. It isn't generally known
whether someone helped it in as a joke,
or whether getting in was the burico's
own idea. Anyway, there it was, until
the police ushered it out onto solid
ground again.

In a letter sent in care of the Com-
pany to the Master of the tanker FORT
HENRY, Lt. Governor L. C. Kwartsz
extended his thanks for the assistance
rendered the two Curagao fishermen re-
cently picked up near here. (See story
in February 22 issue of Aruba Esso
News). The men were brought to San
Nicholas and expressed their gratitude
for the way they had been treated.
Rafael Martinez of the
Drydock returned last week
from long vacation in Vene-
zuela, and brought with him
some good pictures he took
in Caracas. The first-rate
one printed at right shows
one of the buildings in "El
Silencio", a new housing
development in the Venezue-
lan capital. Seven buildings
with a patio in the center of
each cover seven city blocks,
chiefly apartments which
rent at from $ 45 to $ 100
per month depending on size. Each one
of the units, which are in a combination
of old and modern Spanish architecture,
is the largest apartment building in
South America. In the center of the
seven blocks is the Plaza Urdaneta,
which is three times as large as the
city's main Plaza Bolivar.

Silvani Serrani is working in the Ma-
rine Department on the docks. This may
not mean much to some readers, but if
the name were changed to the "Gorilla",
it might mean more. The noted local
fighter is now a Lago employee, having
started work March 11. Silvani says
that his boxing career will continue and
that he will be seen 'n the local arenas.
For his most recent picture, see page 5.

Justiniano Soto is back at work in the
Boiler Shop after six weeks vacation in
Venezuela. He visited relatives in Puerto
Cabello and Caracas and also had a fine
time at the Carnival in both cities.

Winnie Rohee (Mrs. Charles R.,
whose husband is in Personnel) was re-
cently mentioned by a columnist in a
British Guiana paper, who congratulated
her on her work as co-producer (with
Mrs. C. MacDonald) of the "Folies
Variete" at the Lago Club several
months ago.

Victor Pellicer, who was in the trans-
portation section of Personnel here
from July 1, 1940 to June 29, 1945, was
named local employment supervisor of
Creole at Caracas March 1, according to
a letter recently received by friends.
Victor, who hailed from Venezuela or-
iginally, is well-pleased with his new

Misoa Landed First Vehicle
In North African Campaign

Out of the cryptic phrases of an un-
official log unfolds the story of the war-
time service of the lake tanker MISOA,
which arrived back in Aruba last week
after a five-year absence. It was the
story of bombings, attacks on convoys,
submarine contacts, air attacks, pris-
oners of war and roaring tanks. It is
told in a log maintained by the ship's
navigation officer. Unfortunately, it was
not carried on after he left the ship in
October, 1943, but it covers plenty of
action in two years.
The need for shipping had become
desperate in 1941, and the British Ad-
miralty was on the lookout for all like-
ly-looking vessels to be converted into
ships of war. The MISOA filled the bill
and was requisitioned and sent back to
England for conversion.
To change a tanker into an LST might
seem like a tremendous job, but not to
the men who build ships. In a compa-
ratively short time MISOA was a first-
class fighting ship, ready to try her
guns (not to mention her new bow-
ramp) in action.
From her commissioning to action
was only a short step, and the ex-tanker
took her place as one of His Majesty's
ships. One of the first of her assign-
menIs was a long trip down the coast
of Africa to Freetown, where she met
the BACHAQUERO, also of the Lake
Fleet. From Freetown, the ships sailed
for Madagascar for the campaign there
(BACHAQUERO took part in the oper-
ations, MISOA did not).
From December, 1941, to November,
1942, are listed a great number of prac-
tice landings. The reason for these is
soon evident, for listed in red ink for
the date November 8, 1942, is, "Beach-
ed Arzeu" the first vehicle on the
beach from the MISOA was the first
vehicle landed in the North African
campaign that started turning the tide
for the Allies.
After the initial landings in North
Africa the tanker performed many other
duties, chief among them the ferrying
of troops and vehicles to various parts
of the Mediterranean theater.
Constant mention is made at this
time of the air attacks, and submarine
attacks and contacts. More red-letter
days were in store for the MISOA from
January 17-19, 1943, when she was
under ceaseless air and submarine at-
tacks during runs between Oran, Phil-
lippeville, and Algiers.
During this time the MISOA accounted
for one aircraft (certain) and two more
probables, and a submarine (most def-
inite). The sub was attacked off Algiers

with depth charges and forced to the
surface. Then is was put away with gun-
fire. At this time the TASAJERA
(another of the Maracaibo Oilers) is
mentioned as being struck by a torpedo,
but nothing is said as to what became
of her.
Another sort of red-letter day was
January 26, 1943, when Lord Louis
Mountbatten visited the ship at Algiers.
Strangely enough, the record of stirring
action with the enemy is carried in
nonchalant little notes, while Mount-
batten's visit, apparently the only thing
that excited the log-keeper, is under-
lined three times in ink.
The ship's closest escape was on June
18, 1943, when in an air attack a bomb
hit the ship, but miraculously it was a
dud and failed to explode. Among the
records of attacks by submarines is one
in which the torpedo passed only 20
yards astern. Her record is thickly in-
terspersed throughout with notable
achievements, and shows action almost
without letup.
After finishing her duties in the Med-
iterranean she returned to England,
landing at Devonport in October, 1943.
At this point the log ends abruptly, ap-
parently due to the transfer of the
owner to other duties.
During this time the converted tanker
had transported 1592 war vehicles of all
types, over 8,000 soldiers, and several
thousand prisoners of war. She had been
all over North African waters. Oran,
Phillippeville, Algiers, Sousse, Pant-
alleria, Benghazi, Port Agusta, and
Tripoli are some of the ports which saw
her riding at anchor.
Later the MISOA was part of the
naval forces forming in 1944 for the
great D-day invasion in which she took

terms. Literally hundreds of
bands in every form of fan-

and compete for prizes. Ma-

completely different dress
themes, one for the morn-
ing hours and another for
later in the day. At top

that a shipment was on the way was a

so smoothly that the patriots usually
had their munitions within five or six
hours of receiving the signal. Deliveries
were made every 14 days during the

stole weapons from the Germans.
The underground helped hundreds of
young Norwegians to escape to England,

Billiards Played at L. H. Club

Billiards was the diversion at the La-
go Heights Club March 24, when a
twelve match tournament was held
from 10 in the morning until 3 in the
afternoon. Drawings for partners were
made just before play started.
Winners in the competition turned
out to be R. Chung-A-On and J. W.
(Slappie) Arrias both of the Pressure
Stills. The two first prizes, wrist-watch
bands, were presented to the winning
team and a special prize of a tiny cup
went to Chung-A-On for the biggest
fluke of the day. He broke 45 following
a somewhat mediocre beginning.

Grenada turned in a good performance,
bowling 10 overs, and had seven wickets
for 30 runs. For Victoria, Walker bowl-
ed six over, one maiden, and had four
wickets for 29 runs.
Of the 112 Grenada runs, K. Perrotte
scored 48. Howe was high scorer for
Victoria with 24 runs.

Form Softball League
For Play in Sport Park

Softball is again on the way. In a
meeting of the Sports Committee March
27, the creation of a 14-team league was
decided upon with a schedule to be
drawn up in the near future.
The rules covering the play during
the competition will be practically the
same as before with a few minor chang-
es. A new umpiring practise has come
into being with this league. The captain
and one other man on each team will be
required to act as umpires from time to
time whell their team is not scheduled
to play. In this connection, R. W. Stickel
of the Personnel Department has con-
sented to hold brief coaching sessions
in the noble art of "calling 'em" for the
men concerned.
The teams in the league are the Carp-
enters, Machinist and Foundry, Person-
nel and Accounting, Utilities, Drydock,
Acid Plant, Plant Commissary, Pressure
Stills, T.S.D., M. & C. Colony Oper-
ations, Light Oils Training Division, the
Dutch Army, and one team still to be
added. (The Army will not be competing
for the departmental championship).
