The annual sports meet sponsored by
the Lago Heights Advisory Committee
will take place June 10 (Whitmonday)
at the Lago Heights Sport Field. The
meet will be run much as in the past
with the cross-country race starting at
nine o'clock and the rest of the event
beginning at noon.
Plans are to have 21 events includi4
most of the usual track and field event*
plus a number of novelties such as th,'
egg-and-spoon race, the sack race, tUlc
,3-legged race. and others. An unusual
feature this year will be a bun race. The
idea of-the event is that the contestant
mut run 50, yads to a point where a
bun is iwspepnded just at head height by
means f a' string from -horizontal bar,

To raise a flag As sometimes a symbol of victory. The
raising of a Safety flag is the symbol of victory over care-
lessness and inattention while at work in the refinery. How-
ever, no flag can cause accidents to cease, nor put an end to
carelessness and inattention.
The flags raised Saturday (me page 1) will serve the
Process, Mechanical, and Marine Departments as indicators
of their success in achieving a good safety record.
When a department's flag is not flying it mesns that on
the day preceding the flagless one an accident occurred.
But If the flag stays aloft it is an indication that care is
being taken to avoid accidents, and that the men in the
department concerned are working safely.
A few examples of why it pays to work safely:

A eimionlt helper in the Central Tool Room was untangulin th
ebal of several chain blocks stacked tether the fleer, win

you will only make it worse.

Ordinarily we would re-write this story in
journalistic style. But after reading the notes
made by Nydia Ecury of the Esso News
Staff, as Supriana Kelly told her story in
lively Papiamento, we must leave it in her
words. The story of a long life:

Elold Kelly, Born February 13, 1859
Suprians Kelly, Born July 4, 1863

"I was the eldest of 12 children. Nowme eperens
only a brother, (the youngest child) and
myself are left. Eloid and I got married
on August 6, 1884. At that time Aruba
never even dreamed about today's wel-
fare; at that time life was struggle and "A
more struggle.
When we were married all we owned
was the strength of our arms; Eloid
worked in the aloe-fields and earned 25
cents per day. We could have stayed at
my mother's house, but once we were .
married, we wanted our own place. We
saved all we could, because we had our
mind set on a little cornstalk house, not
far from my parents' house. This house
had been built by Maart Tromp for his
daughter when she got married. The
girl didn't like the house though, as the
rain would get through and each time
everything got soaked. The house was
sold to Bart Kock; after a while he
also was disgusted and the house was
'sold to Dandan Oduber.
Avround this time we had a little -
amount of money saved and we decided
tb use it as down payment for the house
and we would pay for the rot by and
by. It was a very bad year, the crop
was destroyed and we had already paid,
half of the price of the house when a
hurricane came up and the house was
blown to pieces by a sort of tornado. Not& di Redactor: Recientemente "Esso
