4th of July Celebration
Huge Success, 1600 Eat
Food enough to feed a regiment, or al-
most anyway, was consumed the evening
of July 4 at the picnic grounds when the
American Legion, the Community Coun-
cil and the Esso Club collaborated to
hold a picnic for the Colony to celebrate
Starting at five o'clock, cars from all
over began streaming to the spot and the
various committees were kept busy from
then 'til closing time keeping the hungry
Reports have it that 1200 pounds of
meat, 500 pounds of potatoes, 200 pounds
of onions and 150 pounds of beans were
used to feed the picnickers, not to men-
tion fabulous amounts of pickles, Cokes
Later in the evening, after dark, an
impressive fireworks display was to be
seen from the south side of the Colony.
Winner of the New Hudson sedan was
Mrs. Barbara Fryback, who picked off
the new car with number 629 when the
drawing was held later at the Esso Club.
The Commitee handling the proceed-
ings included, P. Hollyfield, E. Klepetko,
S. Evans, Dr. R. Brace, O. Casteel, P. Tri-
carico, E. Walsko, A. Pomeroy, H. Tim-
perman, A. Kossuth, H. Culver, G. Echel-

New Payday Procedure
For Regular Employees
Recently announced by the Accoun-
ting Department were several changes
in the system for paying off Regular
employees on paydays. Until this time
Regular employees have been paid only
at the Main Gate (except for these re-
ceiving pay late at the Main Office).
Starting on July 23, employees will
receive their pay both at the Main Gate
and at the Lago Heights Gate (No. 8).
Future plans call for employees to
be paid at the Sea Grape Grove Gate,
where a building is to be constructed
containing time card racks and pay
The gate at which a man is to be paid
will be determined by the location he
finds his timecard on the first and six-
teenth day of each month. For example:
if an employee's card was racked at the
Lago Heights gate on the sixteenth day
of the month, he would receive his pay
there on the following payday. By the
same procedure, the gate at which he
found his timecard on the first of the
following month is the gate where he
would receive his pay on the succeeding
If the location of a timecard changes
at any time during a month, the em-
ployee will be paid at the gate at which
the card was found on the previous 1st
or 16th, whichever is closer to the pay-
day in question.

Lago Continues Expanded Aruba's Airmen Play Host A.N.V. Presents Play July 5, 11
Before Oranjestad Audiences
Apprentice Program To Aero Club of Caracas
Lago will again offer the opportunity
for boys to enter its 4-year apprentice
program. The annual recruiting trips to
the various parish schools where preli-
minary testing and interviews are con-
ducted, have been completed with the
cooperation of the school officials.
Following this, testing of all candi-
dates will occur at the Lago Club audito-
rium Tuesday, August 5.
In line with the Company's desire to
supply more and better training devi-
ces, it is hoped that sufficient tools will
be on hand by September 1, to start the
new apprentices in the actual use of hand
tools so that they will have some training
in mechanical skills before entering on
their first rotational assignment.
Additions to the training staff are also
being provided to take care of the in-
creased enrollment. It is expected that
the addition of the new group will bring
the total number of apprentices on the
payroll to the 400 mark, the largest
number in the history of the company.

Aruba underwent an invasion by small
aircraft June 21, when eleven planes of
the Aero Club of Caracas flew into
Dakota Field on their way to the Aruba
Flying Club's De Vuijst Field near San
The 25 Venezuelan airmen and eleven
planes had left Caracas at about noon
and arrived in Aruba in the middle of
the afternoon, making the 290-odd mile
flight in about three hours, with a short
stop at Coro to refuel the smaller planes
in the group.
The Caracas pilots were met at Dakota
Field by Lt. Governor L. C. Kwartsz,
J. M. Portillo, Venezuelan Vice-Consul
and H. C. Culver of Lago, President of
the Aruba Flying Club, and after clear-
ing through Customs and immigration,
the visitors were escorted by Mr. Culver
to De Vuijst Field and landed there.
They were guests at a dance at the
Aruba Golf Club that night and spent
the following day seeing Aruba and visit-
ing with members of the Aruba club.
Six of the visitors' planes left for
Caracas on Sunday afternoon and the
remaining five stayed until Monday
Included in the party were Charles
Drew, formerly of Aruba, and Oscar

lion barrels, 1,446,892 of them went to

mark was being set, a new daily haulage
record was being established; that of

He Guesses he's safe now -
Maybe he is and maybe he isn't. He has a lot of Safety
equipment on, but all the Safety gear in the world won't do
him any good if he is careless.
The man who sits back and laughs to himself when he sees
safety devices and says "that stuff's for those dopes that
don't know what they're doing", is just the fellow who will
end up in the Hospital. Then he'll wish he had payed some
attention to people who knew what they were talking about.
The hospitals are full of them, the careless ones. The man
who, without thinking, tosses a lit cigarette out of a moving
car onto the dry grass at the side of the road is flirting with
the possibility of starting a serious fire, possibly endangering
lives. Daydreaming on the job is a sure way to become a can-
didate for a hospital bed. It can also be the cause of a fellow
employee's being there too through some one else's care-
lessness. Careless drivers too Most drivers know the right
way to drive a car, and what the proper procedures on the
road are but they JUST DON'T CARE. There are so many
that belong in this last group.
These are only a couple of examples of action without
thinking. The list could run all over this page and still not be
A little thought before we do anything
ending up the way the lame brain in the

There was once upon a time a widow
who had two daughters. The eldest was
very much like her mother, both of them
being very disagreeable and proud, so
that nobody liked them. The younger one,
however, was a very nice and quiet girl,
who was kind to everyone. Because the
eldest daughter looked like her, the
mother loved her better, and the younger
daughter had to do all the dirty work for
the two of them. Among other tasks, she
had to draw water twice each day from a
well, which was a long distance from
One day when she went to the well, she
met an old poor woman who asked her
for a drink. "Of course", said the girl
and she gave the woman a drink, holding
the pitcher for her, as the woman was
very old and feeble. After having drunk,
she said: "You are such a kind girl, that
I feel I should give you a gift. Whenever
you speak, there shall come out of your
mouth either a flower or a jewel." The
old woman was really a fairy, who had
disguised herself to find out about the

mother", the girl said, and at the same
time there came out of her mouth two
roses, two pearls and two diamonds. The
mother was very astonished and asked
her how this happened. When the girl
had told her the story, dropping
diamonds, pearls and flowers as she
spoke, the mother told the eldest
daughter to go to the well, so that the
same gift might be given to her.
"It will be a very pretty sight indeed",
said this ill-bred girl, "to see me draw
The mother forced her to go and the
girl went out grumbling all the way, tak-
ing along the best silver pitcher in the
house. When she came to the well she
saw a very beautifully dressed lady, who
came up and asked her for a drink. It
was the same fairy, who had again
changed her appearance.
"Do you think that I come here to
serve you with water?" asked the saucy
girl. "Your manners don't amount to
much", said the Fairy, "but I shall give
you a gift just the same. With every
word you speak, there shall come out of
your mouth either a snake or a toad."
As soon as her mother saw her coming
back home she cried out: "Well,
daughter?" "Well, mother?" answered
the brat, at the same time throwing out
of her mouth two toads and two snakes.
Then the mother cried out: "Oh, mercy,
it is that wretch, her sister that caused
all this" and she ran after the young one
to beat her.
The poor child ran away and fled to
the woods. The King's son happened to
pass there and seeing the pretty girl
crying, he stopped and asked her what
was the cause of her tears. The girl then
told him her story, dropping pearls,
diamonds and flowers all around. The
prince fell in love with her and took her
to the palace, where he married her.
As for her sister, she became more
hateful every day, until her own mother
turned her away. She wandered around
for a long time, but no one would take
her in, and at last she got so tired that
one day while in the woods, she just sat
down and died.
