Geo. N. Wilken Retires
Leaves Host of Friends
One of Aruba's first employees,
George Wilken retired June 15 and all
those who knew and worked with him
were sorry to see him leave.
George came to Aruba from the Stan-
dard Oil Co. of Indiana in 1930 as a shift
foreman in the Pressure Stills Depart-
From the beginning he became well
known and liked. Outstanding among his
many fine characteristics was his unfail-
ing support of the "little man". Many
men are able to say that when they had
problems or were in difficulty, George
Wilken was the man who helped them
get straightened out. As a worker in and
for the church he had no peer; and many
things which are now taken for granted
,could not have been brought about had
it not been for him. His friends in Aruba
were sorry to bid him goodbye and were
unanimous in wishing him Godspeed.

New Center Completed Humble Properties Damaged
For Process Trainees In Texas City Blasts
Built to accommodate the training re-
quirements of the department, the new
Process Department training building
was put into use May 1.
Under construction for some time, the
building contains four spacious class
rooms, an office, and washroom facili-
ties. One of the classrooms is equipped
with blackout screens to facilitate the
showing of educational films and slides
At present, approximately 130 trainees
are receiving instruction related to the
various phases of oil refining. Plans
have also been made for Receiving and
Shipping and Catalytic Department em-
ployees to receive job instruction there.
About 50 job-trainees are expected from
each department in the near future. Of
the present apprentice program, 19 of
the 1944 class apprentices are receiving
instruction in the new building and it is
expected that in approximately six
months, 24 1945 apprentices will start.

The company reported complete level-
ing, of its cargo pumphouse, bunker
pumphouse, boilerhouse, office building,
and all minor auxiliary buildings. All
docks along the waterfront were des-
troyed and seven large storage tanks are
considered total losses. Only minor dam-
age was done to pumping equipment,
boilers and other principal machinery.
The company suffered no personnel
casualties. Personnel was withdrawn
rather than risk the danger of fighting
the blaze that swept the tank farm.
A recent article in the Miami
Herald told of a young man who
had a piece of steel rod imbedded
five inches into his head and lived
to tell the story.
Needless to say he was not wear-
ing a safety hat. If he had been,
probably all he would have receiv-
ed would have been a bad bump.
His was the type of job that did
not seem hazardous as far as head
injuries are concerned he was a
shipping clerk. Nevertheless he
ended up with a hole in his head.
It's hard to tell when a Safety
hat will come in handy and its not
worth the risk to try to guess when
you will need it. You may not be as
lucky as the shipping clerk.

History was made again at the Lago

management and department represen-
tatives, four able Lago men received a
total of 2200 guilders in capital awards
as the first men to do so under the new
revised "C.Y.I." plan.
The four exceptional idea men were

The so-called summer months are almost on us. With them
will come vacation time for children all over Aruba. With a
lot of time on their hands, kids can get into lots of peculiar
situations, some of them troublesome and some downright
dangerous, both to themselves and their playmates.
Some of the youngsters have started their vacations al-
ready and some will start them a little later in the year.
These children are young and full of energy and curiosity
and will go to almost any end either to tire themselves out
or to satisfy their colossal curiosity.
Small boys and girls will not generally recognize danger
when they are at play, all they know is that they are having
fun and anything else is very apt to be secondary. Conse-
quently they become careless, playing in places they
shouldn't, flying kites near high power wires, running into
the streets without looking one way of the other to see if any
cars are coming, or perhaps climbing around places where a
fall would hurt them seriously.
Let's keep the vacation days healthy, happy ones by show-
ing the youngsters safe places to play and letting them know
when they are unsafe.

CuraCao Students Spend Weekend
See Refinery, Points of Interest
As visitors to Aruba over the weekend
of the recent holiday (Whitmonday), the
warship Van Speyck brought a group of
approximately 85 students from Curacao.
The attend the A.M.S. (Algemeen Mid-
delbare School) and came to Aruba to
see the island. They stayed in improvised
sleeping quarters at the Juliana School
in Oranjestad and while here they visit-
ed the Gold mine, and were shown the
refinery after which they had refresh-
ments at the Esso Club.
Twice during the student's stay the.
put on a show, "The New System", at the
Rialto Theater. It is a satire on the
educational system and was said to be
extremely amusing by all those who
The Van Speyck took them back to
Curagao on the morning of May 27, after
an enjoyable and educational visit.
Lago Cricket Team Makes
Successful Curagao Trip
Back from Curagao after an enjoyable
holiday week-end trip to play the Shell
team in a series of cricket matches, the
Lago Cricket Team arrived in Aruba
May 27 looking ahead with great antici-
pation to the time when Shell's team
comes over here for a return match
sometime in the fall.
The team left Aruba the night of May
23 and was met by Shell representatives
at the airport and taken to their quarters
at Sufifsant. The following day (Satur-
day) after breakfast, sightseeing trips
were arranged, and those of the team
who have friends in Curagao went
The Saturday game began at 1:00 p.m.
and the Shell team won the toss and
went to bat; they declared their innings
closed at 121 for 8 wickets. The Lago
team scored 87 for 2 wickets at the close
of play with T. Johnson making 42 and
G. Canwood making 37.
The test match (which was a two day
fixture) began at 11:00 a.m. Sunday.
Lago batted first and scored 150 runs.
Shell had only mustered 87 runs at the
close of play.
On the second day of the match Lago
made 118 for all, and Shell retaliated
with 120 for 9 wickets. The game ended
in a draw due to a time technicality, leav-
ing Lago still in possession of the Crown
Life cup, which was left by Lago's cap-
tain in the keeping of the Shell team.
Walker of the Aruba team turned in a
brilliant bowling performance on both
days. Lago men did well for themselves
in Curagao as evidenced by the fact that
Captain R. Rohoman, won the prize for
being the best fielder, A. Perrotte had
the best bowling average and I. Mendes
had the best batting average. In addition,
the two high scores by Johnson and Can-
wood were the highest in the tour-
Tuesday morning, May 27, saw the
end of the visit and the Lago cricketers
flew home to lay plans to meet Shell here
later in the year.

On Job in Curagao
a Quartermaster Phillipe Gamarra of
t the S.S. Jusepin was a man respected
. and liked by the Officers and crews of
i. the Lake Tanker Fleet. For many years
he had sailed on various vessels of the
n Fleet and also had service with the Lago
if Oil & Transport Company as a wharfin-
is ger. His livelihood was derived from
.e work connected with the sea and ships,
i- and it was aboard a ship that he came
.e to the end of his career.
The S.S. Jusepin was engaged in dock-
ing at the Shell installation at Curagao
on May 17, 1947, and Gamarra, while
attending to certain duties in connection
6 with his assignment, was observed to
hesitate in his work and slowly fall to
6 the deck. Subsequent examination by
o the doctor called to the scene brought
S forth that a heart condition had resulted
in Gamarra' death.
5 Upon being informed by Curagao
o Agents of the circumstances, the Lago
4 Marine Department notified Mrs. Fede-
rica Gamarra of Santa Cruz, who re-
8 quested that Phillipe's body be returned
2 to Aruba for burial. This was done May
18th and after services conducted at the
0 Santa Cruz Parish Church, the burial
took place in the church cemetery. A
o large number of his many friends from
the Fleet and the Island attended the
Gamarra is survived by his widow,
widow, Federica, and nine young
children, whose ages range from fifteen
years to under one year. The Esso Trans-
portation Company has concerned itself
with the welfare of the family and is
planning to employ the eldest son as
soon as he is old enough to become a
member of the personnel of the Lake
Tanker Fleet and can take over the res-
ponsibilities required of him by the death
of his father.
Young Gamarra is intent on following
his father's occupation and upon his
assignment to duties with the Fleet will
surely maintain the qualities of good
seamanship established by his father.

E Siete Cabritonan y e Lobo
The Seven Goats and the Wolf
A Mother Goat lived in a hut by the
wood with her seven little goats.
One day she had to go to town so she
called all her children and told them to
be very careful about the wolf, for if he
had a chance he would surely eat them.
As soon as the Mother Goat was gone,
the wolf went to the hut and knocked on
the door. "Who is there?" the little goats
asked. "It is your mother; do open the
door", the wolf said in his gruff voice.
But the little goats said "Oh no Mr. Wolf,
our mother does not have such a gruff
voice" and they kept the door tightly
closed. Then the wolf went to the black-
smith and asked him to file his tongue
so that he might have a fine voice. When
this was done he went back to the hut
and asked in a fine voice to be let in. The
little goats were about to open the door
when one of them looked through the
louver and saw the wolf's ugly black paw
with its sharp nails. "Our mother does
not have such an ugly black paw", he
said and again they kept the door tightly
closed. Then the wolf went to the miller's
and bought a bag of flour. He put his
paws into the bag and they came out
covered with flour and they looked just
like Mother Goat's paws. Again he went
to the hut, and when the little goats
heard his fine voice and saw his white
paws they were sure it was their mother
and they opened the door wide. Then the
wolf got in and when they saw him, they
scattered all around and one hid under the
table, one under the closet and one in it,
one crawled under the bed and one cover-
ed himself under the blankets, while an-
other one jumped into the laundry
basket, and the smallest of them jumped
into the clock. Then the wolf went and
ate the one under the table, the one under
the closet and the one in it; he crawled
under the bed and ate that one, and then
he lifted the blankets and ate that one
too and he emptied the laundry basket
and ate the one that was in there. The
youngest, however, he could not find, and
as his tummy was full anyhow, he went
out to sleep by the river.
Mother Goat came home and when she
saw what had happened she cried and
cried. Then the little goat jumped from
the clock and he told his mother the
whole story and together they set out to
find the bad wolf.
They found him by the river, fast
asleep and snoring loudly. Mother Goat
took a big pair of scissors and cut him
open and out came the six little goats.
They all carried big heavy rocks and put
them into the wolf's tummy and Mother
Goat sewed it all up with a big needle.
When the wolf woke up he was very
thirsty and he got up to go to the river
for a drink. But as he bent to drink, all
the rocks rolled forward in his tummy
and he fell into the water and was
From that time Mother Goat never
had to worry again about leaving her
kids by themselves, when she had to go
