Teas and White Elephants
Help Medical Studies

The Women's Club of Aruba, a Lago
Colony organization with over 200 mem-
bers, has been assisting a great humani-
tarian purpose in recent weeks with a
concentrated drive for funds that will
be sent to the International Cancer
Research Foundation.
A recent preliminary accounting show-
ed Fls. 2,400 already assembled for the
fund, with constant additions being
made to swell the figure.
The entire sum represents actual
social or sales activities; no outright
solicitation of money has been made. In-
dividual members have held teas, card
parties, or musical evenings, with admis-
sion charges going to the fund. A "White
Elephant" sale this week added a sub-
stantial amount. The British women of
the February meeting's tea committee
sold their leftovers for the fund. The
proceeds from the club's Spring Dance
will go to the fund.
One of the largest single additions to
the collection, over Fls. 333, was the
profit from a booth conducted by the
Women's Club at the recent Fair at
Oranjestad. (E. deVeer was of great
assistance in this project, building, de-
corating, and equipping the booth for
them without charge.)
A card party netted over Fls. 300, a
raffle 400, and one "silver tea" yielded
FIs. 200 for the fund. A costume ball at

the Marine Club added another Fls. 350.
Activities for the fund will come to an
end with the annual Spring Dance to be
held in the middle of March. All money
accumulated will be sent to the head-
quarters of the International Cancer
Research Foundation, where it will help
support medical studies that will ulti-
mately benefit people all over the world.

"Traffic With the Devil"
Being Shown in Aruba

An 18-minute two reel movie called
"Traffic With the Devil" is now being
shown in Aruba's movie houses. It is a
safety film, made by Hollywood's biggest
producers, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, with
an urgent message for all car drivers and
The picture, which is being shown
throughout the Unted States and Cana-
da, was brought to the attention of
Police Chief Gilbert Brook by the Inter-
national Association of Chiefs of Police,
and De Veer's Chain Theaters was able
to secure a copy.
Showings at all local theatres will
enable a great many of Aruba's residents
to see it. According to the I.A.C.P., "any-
one who drives a car should be forced to
see it".

United States history rose right up out
of a rag bag at Powerhouse No. 1
recently when Henry Moore noticed a
mechanic wiping oil off his hands with a
cloth that had a small Amercan flag on
it. The "rag" turned out to be a five-foot
piece of bunting that was nearly 50 years
old when it almost ended its existence in
a 100-pound bundle of wiping rags.
The bunting, which probably decorat-
ed a speakers' platform in 1898 and now
may be worthy of a museum, celebrates
Admiral Dewey, "Hero of Manila". It was
almost certainly used when Dewey made
a triumphant return from the Spanish-
American War.
The two small American flags have
only 45 stars: when it was made, Arizo-
na, New Mexico, and Oklahoma were still
to be admitted to the Union.
Where the bunting languished for
nearly 50 years before it landed in a Lago
rag bag makes interesting guessing.

Fireman in Lake Fleet
Spends War in Germany

Supplying German naval raiders with
meat was not exactly James Nicholas'
idea of helping to win the war, but he
had to be a party to it anyhow. James is
now sailing in the Lake Fleet as a fire-
man aboard the Boscan and has an m-
terestingstory to tell of his wartime
experience, which was largely a four
year and nine month stay in a German
internment camp.
Saliing between Argentina and Great
Britain in the summer of 1940, James'
ship, the S.S. Duquesa, was captured
by the famous German raider, the

Spot Bonuses Granted
The granting of spot bonuses to
all employees was announced early
this month, following surveys that
indicated a small but definite rise
in cost-of-living during the last
Paying the bonuses is based on
agreements with the advisory com-
mittees to consider cost-of-living
and general conditions in assisting
employees to meet the present ab-
normal living costs. The bonus pro-
cedure has been used because of
the belief that this is a period of
"conversion" because of many
indications that prices are now
levelling off and that a downward
trend may soon occur.
A number of fixed cost-of-living
increases have been made in recent
years, since costs rose steadily and
with plain signs that they would
continue to go up. Now, however,
the expectation that the rise is
breaking makes a temporary bonus
procedure preferable, until the
current trend becomes plainer.

Royal Princess Is Born

Maria Christina, newest member of
the House of Orange, arrived at Soest-
dijk Palace in Holland in the early hours
of February 18, with a hearty welcome
from the entire Kingdom of the Nether-
Announcement of the birth of a fourth
daughter to H.R.H. Princess Juliana and
H.R.H. Prince Bernhard was first heard
in Aruba at 10:30 p.m. February 17
(Aruba time) over Radio Hilversum.
The official announcement was made
early the following morning, February
18 here, and whistles, bells, and the
breaking out of Netherlands flags with
orange pennants heralded the event.
Gatehouses and offices in the refinery
were appropriately decorated, and ships
in the harbor "dressed ships" with signal
February- 19 was a holiday, with cele-
brations featured by parades in San Ni-
colas and Oranjestad, school children's
singing, and an audience by H.E. the

One of the first celebrations was that
held at 5:30 p.m. on the 18th, at the
Caribe Club, where members held a cock-
tail party in honor of the royal birth. In
offering a toast of welcome to H.R.H.
Princess Maria Christina, Caribe's Presi-
dent Jan Beaujon stated that there need
be no disappointment in the fact that the
baby was not a prince. He pointed out
the wonderful guidance the Netherlands
has received for nearly 50 years from
H.M. Queen Wilhelmina, and from Queen
Emma before her. A queen had guided
the country through two periods of war
and other difficult times. While kings
lost their thrones in recent years, Queen
Wilhelmina's allegiance from her people
is as strong as ever, and she has taken
leadership in the great work of rehabil-
itation and re-establishing the Nether-
lands' place among nations.
Members of the club joined in toasts
to the House of Orange and to the Royal

Lagoites Elected to Bond

In the annual election of the Aruba
Football Bond February 14, two Lagoites
were honored. Fred Beaujon of the Cash-
ier's Office and Gordon Ollivierre of
Utilities were elected; Fred as president
of the association and Gordon to the six-
man committee of management.
The Aruba Football Bond is the
governing body for all official league

Admiral Scheer, three days off the west
coast of Africa. The Duquesa's crew was
kept aboard her to sail her while the
Scheer used her cargo, Argentine beef,
to supply German ships in the vicinity.
Thus the crew was kept prisoner aboard
their own ship under the watchful eye
and ready guns of the Scheer.
When the meat supply ran out, the
ship and prisoners were taken to Bor-
deaux, France, where they were kept for
about fifteen days and then finally ended
up in Germany after a seven-day train
ride through Belgium and Holland. In
Germany the first stop was Sanbostel, a
kind of distribution center for merchant
From Sanbostel James and the men
with him were forced to walk 70 miles to
their final destination, which turned out
to be the huge merchant seamen's camp
in the town of Westertempke. James
spent the rest of the war in this camp,
and says that aside from the poor food,
constant boredom and gruff treatment
no other real hardships were suffered.
It was amusing, he said, to watch the
German's attitude change when they
knew they were going to be beaten. It
was almost as if they were the prisoners,
trying not to do the wrong thing, rather
than the arrogant conquerors they had
been during the four years or more of
James' stay there.
It was a happy day for the men in the
camp when they were freed by the 51st
Division of the Scotch-Irish Guards on
April 30, 1945.

Societies Debate at Liberty Hall
The San Nicolas Cultural Club defeat-
ed the United Negro Improvement Asso-
ciation in an interesting debate at the
U.N.I.A.'s Liberty Hall February 16.
The topic was "Be it resolved that
modern man is happier than primitive
man", with the U.N.I.A. moving the re-
solution and the S.N.C.C. taking the
Eric Gairy of Instrument led for the
U.N.I.A. and Claudius Noel of the Esso
Heights Dining Hall was second. For the
S.N.C.C., Ennett Cox of Colony Oper-
ations led, and Prince Nimrod of the
Pressure Stills was second.

The hopes of plain people everywhere were expressed
by Acting Lt. Governor A. Schutte February 7 as he
bade Aruba's farewell to the soldiers in the U.S. mili-
tary cemetery as they were taken away to the United
States and Puerto Rico.
A simple and moving eulogy to soldiers who never
had a chance to be heroes, it is also a plea for peace of
a sort that would make their sacrifice not wasted. It
deserves to be heard by more than those who sat in the
tiny chapel at Sabaneta Camp:

"I am thankful for the privilege of saying a few words as
these fallen soldiers are taken back to their homeland. Again,
as during the war, we are here together under the same flags,
with the same spirit and the same cooperation, as we were in
that time when these soldiers were alive.
Members of a great allied country, they came here to help
us protect the jewels of freedom and democracy. And helping
us, they paid with their lives. Now they go back to rest among
their own people. Here they were not on enemy ground, and
we would have been glad to keep them here, the place where
they did their duty. But their own relatives have more rights,
and we have our memory and their spirit.
We of the Netherlands have done our best to pay all the
honor possible not only to show our gratitude for what
they have done, but through them to thank our great ally,
the United States of America and her people, for the great
help they have given us in time of danger. It is in the name
of our people that I thank these soldiers and the people of
their country for everything they have done to help us to
stay what we were, a free people.
These bodies are going now, but we here will not forget
the cause for which they came, and we will try to keep alive,
in time of peace, that same spirit in which we fought together
in war. If we are able all over the world to keep the same
spirit and cooperation we had in wartime, we will have a
better world-and all the soldiers who paid with their lives
will have peace, because they did not die in vain. We know our
duty-rest in peace, soldiers."

Colorful parades were a high point of the celebrations in honor of the new princess February o9.
Here the San Nicolas parade, led by the American Legion, passes the Water Tower. Hundreds of
spectators marched beside the official paraders for the full route.

Chunk of Wrecked Freighter
Used 60 Years by Shoemakers

Shoes are made by men and machines
(cowhides help too). But when one hears
of a ship helping make shoes it is some-
what of a surprise. Jacinto (Shorty) de
Kort of No. 2 Lab. knows of a ship which
is indirectly helping an Aruban shoe-
maker in his work even after over 60
When in 1886, a British freight ship
broke up off the north coast near Boca
La Cruz in the great hurricane of that
year, pieces of her drifted ashore and
were picked up by the Arubans of that

time for their own use. Shorty's father-
in-law has a piece of the oaken beam
which supported the ship's bell.
The chunk of hardwood was picked up
by Shorty's father-in-law's father on the
beach. He found that it made an excel-
lent smoother for the sides of the soles
and heels of the shoes he was working
on. When it came to Zenon Croes,
Shorty's father-in-law, he used it for the
same purpose and it is still in use to this
day, though somewhat smaller than it
was when it was found.
The original length of the homemade
tool is estimated to have been about
eight and one half inches. It has worn
down through the years to a trifle over
six inches.

Vacation Trip to Bonaire
Ends Telephone Man's Holiday

Football, playing in a band, and swim-
ming at a beautiful white sand beach
were all part of the vacation of Marciano
Arends of the Telephone Exchange. Dur-
ing his two week vacation, Marciano left
on December 24 for a five day trip to
Bonare with the La Fama Football Club
and their band, "Conjunto Copacabana".
The boys played three football games
while they were there, against three
Bonaire teams, "Atom", "Uruguay", and
a combination of the two. La Fama beat
"Atom" 1-0, and the combination 2-1,
but they were defeated by the "Uruguay"
team 2-1.
The band "Conjunto Copacabana",
played at a fancy fair for the benefit of
a new church and for the members' own
Marciano reports that "Playa di
Lechi", the beach where the boys did
their swimming, reminded him of the
fine white sand beaches of Aruba.
The vacationists returned to Aruba by
plane December 29 and claimed the time
was very well spent.

presentation some time ago of the play,
"Romance in Mandalay", which was'
written and directed by one of the mem-
bers, H. Stevenson of the Storehouse.
The play, which has recently undergone'
changes and improvements, will soon be

Intava, Company subsidiary for aviation business outside the United States, recently demonstrated
at La Guardia Field a revolutionary new method of fueling airplanes. The Intava "Servicer" gets
away from tank trucks, pumping gasoline with its own pumps direct from underground storage tanks
to the airplanes. It also replaces ladders, which can damage the leading edge and de-icing equipment
of a wing, with an "elevator" that lifts the refueling crew to the level of the wing.

Army bunkhouses have been used for many things besides sleeping quarters.

They Ride r
Their Hobbies

The man with a hobby ;s
fortunate, for he Ias a
reserve supply of pleasure
and satisfaction. Hobbies
are as different as men.
Edney Huckleman. shown
with his wife at left, spends
happy hours in his rose gar-
den. Lawrence Bailey, at
right, relaxes by patching a
rusty lifeboat hull and put-
ting in an engine; later he'll
sail the sea on his own deck.

Edney Huckleman of the Dispensary is one of those gardeners who, given a
a cubic foot of dirt, can grow practically anything from a rose bush to a palm
tree. Some good gardeners simply have a "green thumb" and let it go at that-
everything they plant grows well. Edney Huckleman goes further than that:
he relies on charts made by himself, based on various phases of the moon, and
if you don't think it works, witness the results in the photograph.
When pressed for details, he points out that there are various charts, each
covering a different operation; during the month there is a good planting time,
a good transplanting time, and a good "fruitful" time. The three periods aren't
necessarily the same; in fact, they are usually different. Unfortunately, they also
shift around from month to month.
This month the best planting period may be from the third day after new
moon until the fourth day after the first quarter. What stumps the amateur
gardener for whom "nothing ever grows" is the fact that next month the best
period might be the few days before the full moon.
Edney will show you flowers that were planted three days apart, in exactly
the same kind of dirt, given the same care and amount of water. One planted
in the "good time" is big and healthy one planted in the "bad time" (only
three days later) is small, unhealthy-looking, and will definitely never amount
to much.
Fruitfulness operates the same way: a rose bush planted at the right time is
covered with buds, while another at the wrong time, only a week away, has only
one or two buds.
Edney won't say it's astrology, and he won't say the moon has any direct effect
on his garden. All he cares about is that gardening geared to the phases of the
moon really works. And he is the man that can prove it.

Lawrence Bailey of the Equipment Inspection Group is investing all his spare
time in a boat, and is beginning to have something to show for his last six
months of evening and weekend work.
It was in May of last year that he found the lifeboat where it had been
discarded as unfit for further use. He bought the battered and rusted hulk, and
with the help of some friends and a truck moved it to his home between Essovilk
and the Tank Farm. Since then he and his wife (and sometimes his small
daughter) have spent countless hours working on it.
One of the first and longest jobs was cutting out and patching the many
sections of the hulk that had rusted away. Over a dozen large patches of sheet
steel had to be rivetted on, and his wife held the sledge for all those hundreds
of rivets. The rainy season gave him plenty of "hydrostatic tests", and proved
that they had made the boat good and watertight; every time it rained he had
to bail out the rainwater that collected.
Next he put in five pairs of new ribs. He built a wheelhouse, and shipped a
mast of two-inch pipe for an auxiliary sail.
He bought a Ford V-8 85-horsepower motor. It turned out that the cylinder-
walll were too thin and corroded, so he renewed the block. Then he put in new
rings and water pumps. He has big plans for cooling the engine's water he
expects to use the whole Caribbean Sea. A pipe carries the cooling water down
the outside of the bow, along the entire keel, and back up the stern into the
boat, cool enough (he hopes) to go through the engine again.
About all he still has to do is to install the motor, do some painting, and then
figure out a way to get the boat from its very dry "drydock" to the lagoon.
From there on it's mostly pleasure-cruising, mixed in with what he hopes will
be some very profitable fishing.

Edney a inform nos cu tin diferente

po pa plant, bon tempo pa trasplanta y
bon tempo pa e mata duna bon fruta. No
ta tur ora e tres periodonan ta mescos,

Un otro ehempel ta un mata di rosa cu

Edney no ta bisa cu ta astrologia, ni

Tempo di jobida a dune un bon chens
pa e test su boto y a proba cu nan a lapi
e boto bon, pues e no ta haci awa. Cada
bez cu awa a jobe a mester a chica e awa

Despues el a traha un camarote y el a

Full Military Rites
Given Soldier Dead

With solemn rites, the 14 men buried
at the U.S. military cemetery in Saba-
neta during the war left Aruba February
7 by Army transport, destined for re-
burial in United States and Puerto Rican
military cemeteries.
Netherlands troops, Government offi-
cials, U.S. Army representatives, the
American Legion, Lago Management
representatives, and others gathered to
pay final homage to 14 U.S. Army and
Navy men and one merchant seaman
who lost their lives here between 1942
and 1945.
The flag-draped caskets lay in state
for a time before the final rites, with the
American Legion furnishing a guard of
honor. Impressive religious ceremonies in
the Camp's chapel marked the occasion,
with a number of speakers paying last
respects to the soldiers. Among these
were Acting Lt. Governor A. Schutte,
(see page 2), Rev. P. V. Dawe, military
chaplain Father Jansen, and P. D. Holly-
field and H. J. Mills of the American
Immediately afterward, the Honor
Guard formed on each side of the bar-
racks entrance. While a company of
Netherlands Army soldiers presented
arms, and muffled drums rolled, the cas-
kets were carried to the waiting convoy
by pall-bearers from the Netherlands
Church bells tolled as the convoy pas-
sed through San Nicolas. When the pro-
cession arrived at the harbor the Nether-
lands soldiers formed the guard, and
members of the American Legion were
pall-bearers. After the caskets were
loaded on the barge that was to take
them to the transport, the Legion Com-
mander and Adjutant placed a poppy on
each, and a bugler sounded taps.

Clothing Gathered for

Essoites in East Europe

Lack of warm clothing and shoes for
7,900 employees of overseas affiliates of
Standard Oil Company (New Jersey)
and their families was termed critical
early this month by Eugene Holman,
Jersey president, in an appeal to the
company's domestic employees for don-
ations of clothing to these people.
The distressed employees and their
families, totalling nearly 30,000 men,
women and children, are in Hungary,
Roumania and Austria, he said.
In a letter to department heads of
Standard (New Jersey) and affiliates,
Mr. Holman noted that until recently
there was no way to get clothing into
these countries. However, he added, the
Franciscan Fathers have completed
arrangements which now make deliveries
of shoes and garments possible.
Acting on Mr. Holman's suggestion,
domestic employees organized a 10-day
campaign from February 12 to 22 for
collecting the needed materials. A year
ago, company employees sent 18 tons of
clothing to fellow employees in similar
need in Fiance, Holland, Belgium and
the Scandinavian countries

Tennis Gets Double Boost With New Facilities

The popular sport of tennis made gains in two locations this month with
new facilities inaugurated and important additions to old facilities.

The Paramaribo Tennis Club, a divi-
sion of the Surinam Club, formally open-
ed its court in back of the main club
building in an afternoon ceremony
February 9.
Among those who spoke in welcoming
the new club to the Aruba sports scene
were Doctor Eloy Arends and Ezy Hen-
riquez of the Tivoli Club, John Simoons
of Sparta, Henri Nassy of the Surinam
Club, and Joe D'Aguiar for the Parama-
ribo organization.
Officers of the tennis club include
J. D'Aguiar, chairman, Max Lashley,
vice-chairman, C. Ragunath, treasurer,
O. Wesenhagen, secretary, and Jules
Tjon, assistant-secretary.

At the Lago Heights Club February
15, the new floodlights that turn night
into day on the tennis courts were dedic-
ated to more after-work hours of sport
for all employees. The two courts are
now flooded with 10,000 watts of light
that make night tennis and basketball
C. R. Bishop, chairman of the Lago
Heights Advisory Committee, opened the
program with an acknowledgement of
the pleasure and benefit employees will
have in tennis facilities that can be used
on into the evening after sunset.
Speakers who followed him in dedicating
the courts to increased usefulness were
O. S. Mingus, assistant general manager,
B. Teagle, Industrial Relations manager,
and Colony Manager J. J. Abadie.
After the brief formal ceremony the
sportsmen took over. An exhibition 01
first-rate tennis doubles matched James
Lambert and George Le Grande against
Frank Gilkes and Leon Ammann, with
the former pair winning at 6-3, 10-8.
In the second event a strong R.C.A.
basketball team tossed them in from all
directions to win from Lago Heights, 33

Ramblers Trip San Lucas

After Close Start

Another attempt to topple the high-
flying Ramblers from their top position
in the current baseball league failed
February when San Lucas lost to the
Colony team 11-1 at the Sport Park.
The contest was close and for a while
it looked as if the San Lucas boys would
be the ones to make the kill, for until the
sixth inning it was anybody's ball game.
Then came the deluge.
After having drawn first blood with a
tally in the second frame San Lucas went
into the third with high hopes. The Ram-
blers, however, scored one in the third
tying it up. The second of the Rambler
markers came in the fifth inning but it
was no indication that they would (or
could) score more, for the brilliant de-
fensive play of the S.L. boys made scor-
ing a tough proposition. For although
the Ramblers had walloped out seven
hits in the first two innings they had
failed to score.
The sixth inning saw the crumbling of
San Lucas hopes; when the dust had
cleared at the end of the frame, six runs
appeared on the board for the Ramblers.
From then on it was Ramblers all the
way, with three more in the eight clinch-
ing it.
