May "C.Y.I." Awards Total FIs. 325

Coming up with a suggestion that greatly improved the expansion joint
at the SO 2 production plant, George Larson became the high "C.Y.I." win-
ner for the month of May with an award of FIs. 100.

Other lucky ones were:

Maurits De Kort, FIa 10.00, install
"Drive Slow" sign at blind corner from
main refinery road to Powerhouse
No. 1.
Tiis idea resulted in the installation of a
traffic caution sign at the spot mentioned and
it will serve as a safety measure.
Paul Bennett, Fls. 10.00, install walk-
way over pipe lines near Crude field
In the interest of the safety of the personnel
Involved in the area, the walkway was installed.
George Barzey, Fla. 10.00, install
identification signs at Docks.
A complete survey was made in the area and
as result a rt number of safety and name signs
ware installed.
Oscar Copra, Fls. 15.00, additional
paper cutting machine for Blueprint
room T.S.D.
This idea will result in the increased
production of prints which has at times been
slowed down due to the fact that they were
coming off the machine faster than the existing
paper cutter could handle them.

Facts and Figures
From the Company's Annual Report

From the outbreak of war until V-J
Day, Standard Oil Company (N.J.) and
affiliates lost 96 tankers. The vessels
have been partially replaced and it is
planned to add further to the fleet.

For the second successive year, the
amount of crude toil processed in the
domestic and foreign refineries of
Standard Oil Company (New Jersey)
and affiliated companies exceeded one
million barrels a day. The total refinery
runs 1,119,900 barrels a day re-
presented an increase of five per cent
over 1944.

Venezuela, with a crude oil produc-
tion exceeding 1, 000,000 barrels a day,
is now established as the second largest
oil-producing nation. Slightly more than
half of the country's output is con-
tributed by Creole Petroleum Corpor-

From Pearl Harbor to the close of
the war, production of 100 octane
gasoline and blending components by
Standard (N. J.) affiliates represented
20 per cent of the total supply of the
Allied Nations.

From statements to shareholders meet-
ing by Eugene Holman, president, and
F. W Abrams, chairman:

"Estimated crude production of the
Standard Oil Co. (N.J.), worldwide, for
the first five months of 1946 was
1,049,000 barrels per day, up 8 percent
over the same period in 1945. Refinery
runs have averaged some 1,666,000
barrels per day, up 9 percent over
Note: Lago's refinery runs during the
first five months of 1946 averaged
330,700 barrels per day, or more than
one-fourth of Jersey's worldwide total.
"A fair competitive system in the long
run gives people more goods, of better
quality, and at lower prices than they
would have under any other system.
This is not to say that our system is
perfect, but while striving to improve
it, we must not sacrifice its features of

Not the rainy season but a reason-
ably good imitation was put on by the
month of June, as gardens, fields, (and
in some cases employees) soaked up
the largest amount of June rain in the
past 16 years.
Since 1929 the average for all Junes
has been one-half inch of rain, but this
one broke records with 1.56 inches, or
three times the usual amount. Like
gold, the rainy season is where you
find it.

A Litter of One

If eats can have kittens, why can't
Cat-Plants? The answer is that they
can. Tucked into a corner of No. 3 Labo-
ratory is an assortment of tubes, gauges,
dials, thermometers, beakers, flasks,
and wires. To the unaccustomed eye of
the non-chemist this might look like
just another pile of lab equipment, but
those in the know recognize it as the
Cat-Plant's "kitten". The reason for the

In the small picture, the apparatus where
Archibald Stevenson is recording results is a
10-foot model of the 20-story Cat Cracker. The
whole model at No. 3 Lab. would fit into some
of the pipes on the big unit, yet for test pur-
poses It reproduces many of the results
obtained on Its parent.

name is that on a much smaller scale
the "ldtten" will do the same things as
the full sized "Cat".
Set up here a year ago after having
been built in Bayway, the small unit is
used to run the various tests in connec-
tion with Cracking Plant activities. The
little unit stands about ten feet high and
is much the same in design as the "Cat-
To get an idea of the difference in
magnitude of the operations of the two,
in the twenty-minutes-at-a-time that the
kitten is run, it is fed 530 cc. of a
standard gas oil to be cracked and
tested. These periods produce about 80
cc. of product. But across the street
from the Lab., the process is carried
on on a somewhat larger scale. In the
same twenty minute period about
57,343,750 cc. of oil are fed to the giant
cracker and the result is roughly
23,118,000 cc. of aviation gasoline. As
might be suspected, "baby" does no'
have quite the appetite for catalyst
that mama has. While the baby is using
0.8 of a pound of catalyst, the Cat it-
self is running with 680,000 pounds in
its innards.
Though the baby can never reach the
proportions of its parent it goes on day
by day doing its small but important
part in the work of the refinery.

Any Notches


One of the commonest
occupations for civilians
during the war years was
"tightening up their belts
another notch". Many, of /
course, through patron-
izing black markets or
developing channels of
favoritism, never really
felt the squeeze of war-
time shortages; most or- *
dinary people, though,
tightened up their belts with each new shortage and
dreamed of the postwar years when there would be
plenty of everything.
The postwar years are here, but plenty of every-
thing hasn't arrived. In fact, all indications are that
things are going to get a great deal worse along the
supply line before they even begin to get better.
Everyone who reads a newspaper, listens to the
radio, or shops for food or clothing knows that goods
of many kinds are harder to buy now than at any
time during the war. What many may not realize,
though, is that this situation may last for a long time
and is likely to become more difficult.
This is confirmed by a Colony Service Department
representative who has just completed a detailed
survey of buying possibilities in the United States, par-
ticularly the New York area. Normal legal purchases of
food and clothing are extremely difficult to make.
Many things can be secured in the black market, that
are not obtainable otherwise, including all the steaks,
white shirts, and nylon hose anyone might want. The
Company's Purchasing Department, however, will not
operate in the black market field.
An outgrowth of the shortages is the U.S. govern-
ment's tightening up of export license control. Last
month, for example, it was necessary for the Purchasing
Department to send a man to Washington in an
attempt to secure an export license for work gloves
and work trousers to be sold in the Commissaries here.
During the war the Company received priorities
because of its position as a great supplier of indispen-
sable petroleum products. Now, however, priorities are
past, and Company buyers compete on an equal basis
with everyone else that is clamoring for limited supplies
Moreover, even when supplies are available, export
restrictions may make it impossible to get them out of
the country.
It all adds up to the fact that many of the essentials
of life, especially food and textiles, may be increasingly
hard to get, and it will be some time before that tight
wartime belt can really be loosened up.

In a recent article in a New York newspaper, Ralph
Hendershot, a noted financial writer, stated that traditio-
nally, the name "Standard Oil" flashes in people's minds a

thought akin to "power" or "wealth".
The Company, he stated, might better be thought of as
a large shareholders' association with many thousands of
ordinary people owning stock. It is owned by 160,000 stock-
holders, some of whom undoubtedly are rich, but there are
many more thousands who are just run-of-the-mill citizens.
Comparing the 5,816 stockholders of 1912 with the present
number, it is apparent that the ownership of S.O. (N.J.)
has been much more widely distributed and the realization
of a greater responsibility to the public no doubt developed
with this expansion.
As an evidence of this realization, he pointed out that of
over 5,000 Company employees who have been released from
the service, all but 250 came back to the job.


In the Aruba Esso News of May 24 it Is stated that
"the Esso Transportation Company will own all ocean
tankers not under the U. S. flag". In reality, it is not
contemplated that this company will own any vessels other
than the Lake Tanker Fleet formerly owned by Lago
Shipping Company, Ltd.
Their principal role, aside from chartering agency
matters, will be the operation of vessels owned by other
affiliates under management agreements. In this manner
they will operate ships owned by Anglo and certain vessels
of the Panama Transport Company which are assigned to
them. They will also lend any required assistance to other
marine affiliates in Europc.

Improved K.L.M. Service Begins
Linking the Western Hemisphere
with the Eastern, a transatlantic ser-
vice inaugurated by K.L.M. June 6, now
flies the 5627 miles from Curacao to
Amsterdam in 36 hours. The change in
route, which takes present flights
through New York, cuts the flying time
considerably as compared with the just-
under-three-days time of the longIr
route through Africa, Portugal, and
South America. It now is possible uo
make a complete round trip from Am-
sterdam to CuraQao in a week-end and
still have a full (lay in Cura-au whe.i
you get there.
In addition to these new transatlantic
flights, there will shortly be put hito
service three new DC-4s on the main
lines in the Caribbean which will great-
ly reduce the time to and from Miami.
Recently received by K.L.M.'s West
Indies Division was the Inter-American
Safety Council's "Aviation Safety
Award" for flying the whole of 1945
without a single accident to passengers
or crew.

Just one little drop coming out
of the line at right. Insignifi-
cant! But a drop per second
will fill ten barrels in a year.
Multiply such tiny losses by
hundreds and the little drop is
no longer insignificant, it be-
comes staggering.

A common source of oil loss is through the stuffing
boxes on valves. Keep valve stuffing boxes snug to
stop these leaks.

Most pipeline leakage and valve stuffing box leakage
doesn't go to the sewer it is 100 per cent lost. Pre-
vent such losses!

THIS is one cubic centimeter. Looks
like only a few drops. But a loss of
one cubic centimeter per second
will equal 200 barrels in a year. And
200 barrels is a lot of oil.

THIS is five cubic centimeters. (It's
easy for a carelessly-operated pump
to lose five cc's per second). This
little dribble in a year's time will
waste 1,000 barrels of oil.

THE THIMBLE is traditionally a
symbol of tiny quantities. This one
barely fits your little finger. It would
hold only two and a half cubic
centimeters. But poorly-operated
pumps, leaking valves, careless
sampling and dozens of other ways
of losing "just a little" oil make
millions of thimblefulls, thousands
of barrels.

horror. That sort of thing happens ever

United States. If you really felt that,
perhaps the stickful of type in Monday's
paper recording that a total of 29 local
citizens were killed in week-end crashes
would rate something more than :1

on a safety poster would dare depict
that in full detail.
That picture would have to include

realistic portrait of an hysterical womnii

eyes and runs off her chin. Minor details
would include the raw ends ot bone-,
protruding through flesh in compound
fractures, and the dark red, oozing SLu-
faces where clothes and skin were flayed
off at once.

Those are all standard, everyday
sequels to the modern passion for going
places in a hurry and taking a chance
or two by the way. If ghosts could be
put to a useful purpose, many bad
sretches of road everywhere would greet
the oncoming motorist with groans anid

thie fragments are driven in as it a can-

(locally known as Bonnofees) started from just a sprout and grew to this

JULY. 5 1946


Three-Quarter Century No Obstacle

When a man digs a well six feet in
diameter and 108 feet deep through solid
coral with nothing but crude hand tools,
that's news. But when the man is 74
years old and will be 75 in September,
then it's one for Ripley.

Such was the feat of Johannes Ras-
mijn, 74-year-old former employee in the
Carpenter Department, who on June 21
struck good sweet water at 108 feet in
a well he has dug in a field next to his
house on Weg Naar Sero Pretoe (Road
to the Black Hill), half a mile north of
San Nicolas. And he did the whole job
alone, except for some help from his
wife and an assortment of small-sized

Started 30 years ago......

It was in 1916 (before many of the
readers of this page were born) that
Shon Rasmijn took out a permit to dig
his well, and first broke ground. He had
the big hole down about ten feet (you
can still see the mark) when the war-
time sugar boom in Cuba beckoned, and
like countless other Aruban men he was
off to the northern island's sugar cane
fields. It was 30 years before he crawled
into the hole again.
He was in Curaqao for a number of
years, and worked for Lago from 1930
to 1940. It was to be still another six

At right, Johannes RasmUn. 74, stands next to
the 10-foot well he hacked out of solid coral
with only hand tools. Heaped beside him I. a
very small part of the substantial portion of
Aruba he dug and hoisted out of the hole.

years before he got back to his digg.ng.
On January 2, 1946, he started scraping
and chiselling away again at the bottom
of the hole, and in just under six months
he found what he was looking for.
In these days of dynamite and com-
pressed-air drills it is remarkable that
the job was done entirely with small
hand drills that he made out of iron bars
on his own forge. For whatever help it
gave, he made a practise of burning old
automobile tires on the bottom to help
soften the coral for his bits.
At supper June 21 he told his family
he thought water must be near, then
went back down the well to work by the
light of a wick burning in a Bols bottle
full of kerosene. At eight o'clock the
water came in almost with a spurt, and
he had to get out, as it soon rose to a
depth of ten feet.
It remains now only to cement in the
top of the well (probably a simple job
for this spry young man of 74) and after
some formalities with the Government,
he will be ready to start selling the
water he spent 30 years finding.

Here are the gladiators at half-time during the
football match between the Lago Heights
Bachelors and the L. H. Married Men. At this
point the score stood at 3-2 In favor of the
Married Men. At the top, standing left to right
are G. Brower (referee), S. Alleyne, J. D0 Silva,
J. Arrias, D. Lashley, J. De Vries, A. Matthews,
Kneeling, F. Warner, J. De Freltas, F. Da Silva,
H. Nassy, and S. Wellman. In the bottom
picture are the Bachelors. Standing, at left, G.
Brower (he gets around), D. Sibllo, I. Gordyke,
D. Viapree, L. Fernandes, J. Dutler, A. Gonsal-
ves, C. Limes, Z. Khan, H. De Freitas, I. Wong,
A. Texeira, and G. MacPherson.

In a twenty-minute overtime period
the Lago Heights Bachelors extended
themselves and eked out a 5-4 football
win from the L. H. Married Men, June
16. The game was a red-hot affair all the
way through and both outfits played
sterling football. A bit of comedy relief
was furnished by the Bachelors' August
Gonsalves who had a hard time keeping
himself and his shoes together. When he
kicked the ball nobody knew whether it
or his shoe would fly.
To give the Married Men another shot
at them, the Bachelors agreed to a
return match July 7.

Local Welfare Group Observes
Second Anniversary of Founding

With over 500 persons in attendance,
the Netherlands Windward Islands Wel-
fare Association celebrated its second
anniversary at the Cecilia theater June
The Association was founded two
years ago for the purpose of fostering
among the people of the Windward
Islands of the Netherlands West Indies
social and educational improvements.
President W. Hilman greeted the
members and their friends and express-
ed the hope that the organization would
continue in its good work for many
years. Included in the speeches on the
program was one from a representa-
tive of the sister group in Curaqao.
Later in the day refreshments were
served and music was provided by the
United Swingsters orchestra.

Sport Park Cricket Continues

The matches recently played in the
cricket competition now running at the
Sport Park produced some fine cricket
with good scores and bowling.
In a match June 16, Grenada C.C.
trounced Sports Park C.C. to the tune
of 201 to 89. The outstanding perfor-
mers of Grenada were V. Collins with a
high score of 49 and two 3-wicket bowl-
ers, M. Edwards and C. Nicholas. High
men for Sports Park were T. Johnson
with 32 runs and J. Sharpe who took 4
Victoria C. C. beat the West Indian
C. C. 132 to 93, June 23. For Victoria

6 wickets. West Indian's high scorer
was K. Wong with 31 and the best
bowler was S. Bacchus taking 3 wickets.


Bolivariana Bows to Lago Club
In Week End Ping Pong Matches

Fast and furious ping-pong was dis-
played at the Lago Club June 23 when
a team of Lago Heights ping-pong-ers
met and defeated a visiting team from
the Sociedad Bolivariana in five straight
matches. It was the return engagement
of some matches played in Oranjestad
some time ago, which the Lago team
also won.
Table tennis enthusiasts at the Lago
Club hope to be able to start a series
of Sunday matches in the near future.
The results of June 23 were:
J. De Freitas defeated P. Mirep, 21-10,
L. Bryan defeated C. Zeppenfeldt,
21-15, 15-21, 21--.
R. Murray defeated F. Croes, 14-21,
21-19, 21-17.
C. Faria defeated E. Croes, 21-17,
I. Mendes defeated M. Croes, 24-22,
The players were ably assisted by H.
Lawrence who acted as referee.

Joseph de Freltas drives a hard one at Pedro Mlrep in the first match of the ping-pong series
at the La:o Club June 23. Those drives, mixed with skill in other departments of the game,
won him his match in straight games, 21-10 and 21-13. Seated at right is referee H. Lawrence.

Delayed Reaction

Old-timers had an old joke called to
mind last week when the S.S. "George
G. Henry" was put on the crude oil
run between Aruba and Maracaibo. In
the very old days, before there was
any tankage at San Nicolas, the
"Henry" was tied up at Oranjestad for
a time as depot ship into which the

lake tankers discharged their cargoes.
Men of the Fleet still remember being
irritated when the blue-water skipper
on the ocean tanker would yell over
the side "Hey, you on the barge".
Now, 20 years later, the "Henry" is
temporarily a "barge" itself. Unfort-
unately for the Fleet's revenge, how-
ever, the irritating skipper of 20 years
ago is probably long since retired.
