THE NEWS


George H. Jett, above, last month was appointed
marine manager of L.O. & T. Co. and resident
manager of Esso Transportation Co., as well as
agent for various shipping companies calling at
Aruba and marine advisor to Creole in Venezuela.
Mr. Jett started with Jersey in 1930, when he
organized the Butterworth System as a subsidiary.
He was vice-president and general manager for
three years, and has been president since 1933.
He is at present on loan to Lago. To his new post

of the U.S. Maritime Commission, he was loaned
to the Barnes-Duluth Shipyard, and in the capacity
of president and general manager served from
August 1942 to December 1943. Among other
ships built at the yard during the time he was in

On the Crackinz Plant's Billion Barrel Day, Sep.
tember 24, Crc ei Barnes displays a prized sou-
venir, a sample of the first pressure distillate to
come over the top of No. 1 Combination Unit
August 7, 1929. He climbed to the top of the
condenser box to catch the first drips through the
vapor line bleeder, using a big glass ceiling fixture
to collect it in because he didn't have a bottle
handy. The sample has shrunk ov-r the ladt 18
years, not from evaporation but from Barney's
generosity in glring bit; of it to other old-timers.
(Note bronze plaque in back;rouud, permanently
anchored to the Ce,,tral Fumnphouse as a record of
the event.) For more of the Cracking Plant's big
day, see page 3.


Names and numbers were important last month
when "who gets which house" in the new Home
Building Foundation district was decided by a
drawing. Office boy Norris Richardson draws a
name from one jar and a house number from the
other, while Frank Griffin and Fred Beaujon. at
left, record them. Checking results are S. Dirkmat
and J. Th. Remme of the Civil Police, and L.P.D.
Chief G. B. Brook at right. (Not shown, J. P.
Barbler of the Military Police). Keys were distrl*
buted last week, and the first houses were being
occupied as this Issue goes to press.


Standard Oil Co. (N.J.) and its affi-
liates throughout the world are in the
midst of one of the greatest expansion
programs in Company history to meet
requirements for petroleum products,
according to a survey by "The Lamp"
magazine. Projects include exploration
and drilling, increased refinery capacity,
and additional pipelines; barring unfore-
seeable delays they will be mostly finish-
ed by 1951.
Affiliates in the States will spend
about 121 million dollars on producing
activities alone in 1947. Refinery con-
struction and modernization will take
nearly 60 million dollars this year, and
75 million dollars next year, with pro-
jects under way at Bayway, Baton
Rouge, Baltimore, Charleston, and Bay-
town. Included are new pipe stills and
catalytic crackers, modernization of
present equipment to increase capacity,
and enlarged pipeline outlets in order to
provide for steadily increasing demand.
In Venezuela Creole will spend 98 mil-
lion dollars on Amuay Bay installations,
including the new refinery, a large pipe-
line from the Maracaibo fields, and a
tanker terminal. The importance of the
Caribbean area as a whole is plain in the


Lightning Kills Fisherman
Offshore from Sabaneta

A tragic accident took the life of Cor-
nelis Werleman, 35, as he was fishing
from a small boat near Pos Chikito Sep-
tember 21. He was struck by lightning
during the heavy rain that fell about
4:00 a.m. that morning, and was killed
instantly.
His companion in the boat, Alexander
Geerman, suffered from shock, and had
not fully recovered for several days after
the accident. Mr. Werleman was holding
a wire fishing line, which evidently at-
tracted the lightning.
He lived in Santa Cruz, and was an
employee of the Government telephone
service.
Pos Chikito is a section on the coast
west of Sabaneta. Many people believe
there is something about the area that
makes it especially susceptible to light-
ning, since a number of strikes near
there are recalled. Several years ago
lightning killed a child in a house in the
district.


Former Mechanical Supt. Here
Goes with Esso Engineering

From the Esso Refiner at Bayway,
New Jersey comes news that W. R. C.
Miller, mechanical superintendent here
from June, 1928 to May of this year, has
been named coordinator of a Company-
wide project known as the Refinery
Mechanical Department Modernization
Program.
The position was created on recom-
mendation of the Mechanical Dept. Or-
ganization Committee that studied the
subject last year.
Mr. Miller has been assigned to the
Esso Engineering Dept., where he is
available for consultation by the large
refineries covered in the Commitee's
survey, as well as by smaller units
making similar studies of modernization
procedures. He also is available for con-
sultation by groups in the Esso Engi-
neering Dept. in connection with plan-
ning of maintenance and construction
facilities for new refineries.


fact that it now furnishes nearly half of
all Europe's oil imports.
In England, the capacity of Fawley
refinery will be increased from 13,000
barrels daily to 120,000 barrels, at a cost
of 140 million dollars; at Port Jerome,
France, the war-damaged refinery is
being rebuilt, and a search for equipment
carried away by the Germans goes on,
with some units found as far away as
Austria.
Final agreements are still being nego-
tiated with Jersey's European partners
in Middle East oil concessions. Here
large expenditures, in which the Com-
pany will have a percentage participa-
tion, will provide pipelines up to a
thousand miles in length, to reduce the
long ship route via the Red Sea. Two of
these lines are to cost 149 million dollars,
and a third will cost another 100 million
dollars.
All industry expanding
The Company's program is part of the
greatest expansion effort in the history
of the oil industry, calling for an
industry-wide expenditure of four billion
dollars within two years. This is equal to
20 per cent of the capital outlay invested
in the oil business since it began.

per cent (65/100 %) of his credit
balance, as his share in the earnings of
the Foundation.
In addition, as his share in the
forfeitures, each participant's thrift
account will be increased by seven and
one half percent: (71/2 %) of the total of
his own and the Company's regular con-
tributions from October 1, 1946 to Sep-
tember 30, 1947.
Statements of individual accounts for
the year ending September 30, 1947, in-

Specialist in Tropical
Medicine Is Added
To N.Y. Medical Staff

Among important changes in staff an-
nounced by the Company's New York
Medical Department was the appoint-
ment of Dr. Kevin Vigors Earle, a
specialist in Tropical Medicine, as Physi-
cian-at-large.
While Dr. Earle will function as a
physician-at-large, and not as a Tropical
Medicine specialist, his experience with
tropical diseases will undoubtedly be of
benefit to the New York medical staff
and to Company hospitals in tropical
areas.
Dr. Earle obtained degrees at the Uni-
versity of London and at Cambridge, and
holds a Diploma in Tropical Medicine
from the University of Sydney, and the
Diploma in Tropical Medicine issued
jointly by the Royal College of Surgeons
of England and the Royal College of
Physicians of London. His internships
were obtained in London, including a
period at the Hospital for Tropical Dis-
eases. Residencies were served at a Lon-
don hospital and at the Barbadoes Gene-
ral Hospital in the British West Indies.
He became associated with the Com-
pany in 1942, with the affiliated com-
pany at Talara, Peru, and in 1944 became
Medical Director for the affiliate at
Quayaquil, Ecuador. He is the author of
numerous published papers, most of
which concern Tropical Medicine and
Hygiene.
His appointment to the central Medical
Department is a further step in providing
the widest possible medical service for
employees. With operations all over the
world, many involving special medical
needs, it has been imperative that the
Company maintain leadership in all
fields of industrial medicine.

The letter at left speaks eloquently of an outstanding
record in Safety. In passing it along to members of the
department, Police Department Chief G. B. Brook
said: "I know how much earnest and conscientious
effort it has taken on the part of every individual in
the department to go this long without a lost time
injury. I am equally certain that members of this depart-
ment will continue with a renewed effort to keep our
record spotless."
As always when talking safety records, the record
itself the number of days or of man-hours is
secondary; first in importance is that for so long a time
no member of the L.P.D. has sustained the pain and
the losses that never fail to go with lost time accidents.
That is how such a record pays off.


Instrument Magazine Prints
Griffin's Talk to Local Group

The August issue of "Instruments"
(The Magazine of Measurement and
Control) carries an article prepared by
C. J. Griffin, asst. division superinten-
dent in charge of the Catalytic Dept. An
abstract of a talk given before the In-
strument Society of Aruba several
months ago, it was titled "What process
groups expect of instrumentation".
For the most efficient and economic
conduct of today's exacting processes,
he suggested as an essential the need for
instrument men to know the processes in
fullest detail. Close collaboration be-
tween Process men and Instrument men
who know what is needed because they
know what is being required of the
operating equipment must be had for the
best operation both as to quality and
costs.
He pointed out the need for improved
instruments in some fields of measure-
ment, as new processes are developed,
and for many new types of recorders and
controls for the units of the future.

Cracking Plant

Passes Billion

Barrel Mark

September 24
From the day the Cracking Plant
cracked its first molecules of oil --
August 7, 1929 to September 24, 1947,
a billion barrels of crude oil passed
through its maze of pipes, cylinders, and
pumps. The occasion, coming two years
and six months after the refinery cele-
brated its Billion Barrel Day, was mark-
ed by a brief ceremony at the Central
Pumphouse, where a bronze plaque per-
manently records it.
The billion includes only crude oil
throughput, and does not include a num-
ber of other operations such as refor-
ming, gas oil cracking, and others.
(Cracking Plant men themselves are the
first to disclaim any undue credit, since
most of the refinery's crude processing
equipment is in this area.) However, a
billion barrels of oil is a lot of oil, and
one worthy of standing as a milestone of
achievement.
In a short congratulatory talk to the
group pictured above, Assistant General
Manager O. Mingus offered some interes-
ting statistics on how big a billion bar-
rels is. Process Superintendent F. E.
Griffin followed with a recital of even
more startling statistics: that to run the
billion required 55,400 cans of Copen-
hagen snuff, 37,000 packages of Mail
Pouch tobacco, and 20,000 Spark Plug
chewing tobacco, all essential to a large
non-job-smoking organization. No one
attempted to estimate the amount of
shift men's coffee that went in to the
billion.
It was recalled that in the plant's 18
years only three men have been in charge
of it W. A. Morris (now an annuitant),
F. E. Griffin (now process superinten-
dent), and P. A. O'Brien, who has held

A part of the message Mr. O'Brien dis-
tributed to the Cracking Plant organi-
zation September 24: "Today we are
celebrating the event of processing the
Billionth Barrel...... This feat is no small
accomplishment as you. all well appre-
ciate...... I am sure we are all very proud
to be partakers in it. I congratulate
every one of you on the occasion".


For technically-minded r
brief description of what
what it does, prepared for
Price:

The Cracking Plant has a crude
processing capacity of about 310,000
B/CD and has a regular organiza-
tion of 249 man. Currently, the Cracking
Plant is processing about 270,000 B/CD
crude because of the limited refinery
crude intake. The crude processing units
of the Cracking Plant are as follows:
eight Cross Combination Units, three
Viscosity Breaker Units and one Gas
Oil Cracking Unit. Other major Cracking
Plant. equipment consists of the Central
Pumphouse, Gas Oil Transfer Pump-
house, and the Tar Stripping Plant.
The crude charge to all Cracking
Plant units is pumped by the Central
Pumphouse which has a crude pumping
capacity of about 400,000 B/SD. The
crude pumps in the Central Pumphouse
take suction on the crude tanks in the
Light Oils Finishing Crude Tank Farm
through seven suction lines and dis-
charge the crude to the individual Units.
Nos. 1 through 4 Combination Units


leaders, the following is a
the Cracking Plant is and
the "Esso News" by Jack


are each processing about 22,000 B/SD
Heavy Lake Mixture Crude. Two of
these units are simultaneously reforming
naphtha bottoms. Nos. 5 through 8 Com-
bination Units were reconstructed in
1938-1939 for more efficient operation.
Each of these units is currently proces-
sing about 33,000 B/SD Tia Juana Crude.
Nos. 9, 10 & 12 Viscosity Breaker Units
are each processing about 30,000 B/SD
La Rosa Medium crude. No. 11 Gas Oil
Cracking Coil was revamped in 1946 for
a crude distillation operation and is cur-
rently processing about 32,000 B/SD
Tia Juana Medium Crude.

The products from the Cracking Plant
are natural and cracked raw gasoline,
kerosene, light gas oil, Stanship Diesel
Oil, Catalytic Cracking Unit feed and
heavy fuel oil. The explosive gases in the
heavy fuel oil are removed in the Tar
Stripping Plant before the fuel is cooled
and run down to storage.

Selection of the Sidon Harbor area, 30
orchestra miles south of Beirut, Lebanon, as the
he orga- Mediterranean terminal of a 1,030 mile
uz. pipeline system iras been announced by
hers 100 Trans-Arabian Pipe Line Company, an
Birthday affiliate of Arabian American Oil Com-
r 1. pany.


Definite selection of the terminal was
made possible by the signing of a con-
vention for transit rights with the
government of Syria on September 1.
Sidon has natural harbor facilities and
terminal construction will include dred-
ging, erection of docks, wharves and
other facilities.
Current production from the Saudi
Arabian concessions, it was revealed, is
running at 263,000 barrels a day, an
increase of more than 25 per cent from
a year ago and compared with output
only a little above 200,000 barrels daily
at the start of 1947.
The new line, to be built of 30 and 31
inch diameter pipe, is scheduled for com-
pletion late in 1949 and will represent a
major step toward easing the present
world oil shortage. It will make available
300,000 barrels of oil daily to Europe,
relieving in part the unprecedented
demand on United States petroleum
resources.
Jersey Standard is presently negotiat-
ing for an interest in Arabian-American
Oil Company.

three-week visitor last month at the
home of her sister, Mrs. Kenneth

War Series Extras Available

A very limited number of extra copies
of the five-part series "The War Years
at Lago", is available for distribution to
those interested.
It is believed that many employees
kept their copies of these issues as a
historical record. However, individual
copies may have gone astray. Such
requests will receive first consideration,
after which requests for the whole series
will be filled, as long as the copies last.
Requests must be in writing, and sent
through the mail. It will not be possible
to honor inquiries made directly at the
"Esso News" office or by telephone.
Write it down, mail it in. If the demand
exceeds the supply, a lottery-drawing
will be used to determine which requests
can be filled.

A few hundred thousand barnacles are shown wondering what happened
to that pleasant Lake Maracaibo water. This is a fish-eye view (on the
Drydock) of the underside of the dredge "anvercaibo", former lake
tanker that now spends all its time keeping the channel into Lake
Maracaibo deep enough for traffic. Experiments are being carried on
with various paints to find one the barnacles won't hang on to, but so
far the barnacles like 'em all.

AROUND THE PLANT

Clement Soobrian of T.S.D. came back
from vacation last month with a bride.
He was married to Miss EstherHanoman,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. Hanoman
of New Amsterdam, Berbice, British
Guiana, where the ceremony took place
September 3 at St. Ann's Parish Church.
The honeymoon was spent in George-
town.

Shipyard vacationists include Domin-
go Geerman, welder, who starts seven
weeks off October 16, laborer Albert
Chittick who on September 22 started
eight weeks of doing no labor, and
Rafael Archer, sub-foreman boiler-
makers, who leaves by plane October 16
for an eight-week stay in St. Martin.


Clemen Celaire of Laboratory No. 2
became a married man September 27,
with Annie Richardson of Anguilla the
bride. Laboratory employees offered the
couple a wedding gift and their good
wishes, at a reception held in Oranje-
stad.

Neville Lee of the M. & C. Admini-
stration office is the proud holder of a
diploma in Electricity, Radio, and Refri-
geration. He recently completed a cor-
respondence course with the Electrical
Institute at Hinsdale, Illionois, and re-
ceived his "sheepskin" September 28.


Clement Hagendoorn of No. 2 Lab.
left last week to settle permanently in
the U.S.A. He hopes to become a U.S.
citizen, and to go to night school while
working. Friends at Lab. 2 wished him
farewell and good luck October 2, with a
new pen and pencil set added to their
good wishes. He started at the Lab. in
1944, left for service in the Netherlands
army in July, 1946, and was back in the
Lab. again in May, 1947.

Astronomical Earnings

Jean Sysique from Martinique is an
electrician, and likewise a fighter. In the
main bout on the fight card in San Nico-
las last month, he knocked out his man
in just 12 seconds of the first round. His
purse: FIs. 1,200.
Mr. Sysique was thus working at
the rate of Fls. 100 per second, or
FIs. 360,000 per hour. Probably Louis,
Dempsey. or Tunney never did better
than that. (There isn't enough type to
set up what he would make in a year at
that rate.)
He had 18 fights in Martinique, Gua-
deloupe, and St. Lucia before coming
here, winning 11 by the knockout route.




SOMETHING NEW IN FOOTBALL:
The Combination Units versus the Vis-
breakers on the football field at the
Sport Park last Sunday. Too late for this
issue, details will be in the next.


Sixteen Teams Enter

Cricket Competition

With Baden Powell registering the
first win (over Spartan), the 1947 Sport
Park Cricket competition got under way
September 21. A joint effort of the Sport
Park Committee and the Lago Heights
Advisory Committee, the series will keep
the cricket pitches busy from now
through December 21, when the finals
will be played.
Sixteen clubs are competing. The
Senior Group includes an Eastern Divi-
sion (British Guiana, Maple, Grenada,
St. Vincent), and a Western Division
(Dominica, Eagle, Sport Park, West
Indian). In the Intermediate Group are
the Northern Division (Spartan, Baden
Powell, Energetic, St. Eustatius), and
the Southern Division (Middlesex,
Eveready, Coral, and Renown).
Each team will play the other three
teams in their league once, and the top
teams will then play two-inning test
matches to determine the champion of
each group. It is planned to match the
Senior and Intermediate champions in
the presentation match.
Teams receive three points for an out-
right win, two points for a one-inning
win, and one point for a draw or tie
game. Teams failing to appear for a
scheduled match will forfeit the game.
Matches at the Sport Park are from
11:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., and at the


Lago Heights Field from
4:45 p.m.


Grenada Wins in Three-Team Cricket League


At top, the Grenada C.C., winners of a cricket trophy donated by the Esso Service Station in San
Nicolas. Back row, left to right, W. Knights. M. Edwards, V. Collins, C. iNurse E. Campbell and
D. Alexander. Front row, L. Ferguson, K. Perrotte, N. Norsford, P. Alexander (Manager), T. Miriah
(Captain), A. Perrotte, and T. Johnson. Bottom, P. Alexander, at right, presents the trophy to
Captain T. Mirjah. Looking on is Roy Bishop, master of ceremonies at the presentation.


Grenada made a clean sweep of the
Esso Service Station fixture recently,
winning all six of its scheduled games
and then winning the presentation match
against "The Rest" September 14. They
also took both of the prizes which had
been donated by merchants for individual
performances.
Grenada C.C., Maple C.C., and Eagle
C.C. made up the tournament, with each
team playing each of the others twice.
After the presentation match which
Grenada took by a score of 179 to 173,
the cup was presented by P. Alexander,
who is manager of the Esso Station that
donated the cup, and also manager of
the winning team. Following this M. Ed-
wards received the prize for batting
average (159), while the award for best
bowler went to T. Mirjah. The two out-
standing scores of the league were also
turned in by Grenada players, with
T. Johnson marking up a 101 in the final
regular game against Maple, while Willie
Joseph had made a 139 against the same
team early in the tournament. Both re-
ceived prizes.
The win spurred on Grenada's hopes
of a successful season in the coming
Sport Park championship series. While
they have finished well up in a number
of tourneys, this was their first cup.


Maurice Neme, son of Mr. & Mrs. Ch.
J. Neme of Oranjestad, graduated from
Peddie School at Hightstown, New Jer-
sey last month, at the end of the summer
session. He entered Peddie as a junior in
September, 1945. He was an honor
student in mathematics, was active in
wrestling, and was an outstanding mem-
ber of the soccer team.

over the field trying to bring them down on a chalk line. Splitting up the prize money were

Teeny-Weeny


Once there lived an old woman in a
little house in the woods. She lived all
alone, and she was very sad that she did
not have a little daughter to keep her
company, but still she never complained.
Sometimes she just sat and cried many
many tears because she was so very
lonesome, but not one angry word pas-
sed her lips. As she had no children to
take care of, she took care of little birds,
giving them something to eat and drink
every day. In the same wood there lived
a fairy; she knew how good the old
woman was and how lonely she felt, and
so one day when the old woman was
crying again, she went to her with a
little seed and said: "Plant this little
seed in a flowerpot and wet it with your
tears and prepare for a big surprise when
you wake up the next morning". Then
she disappeared.
The old woman, though she thought
everything very strange, did as she was
told. She planted the seed, wet it with
her tears and went to bed. The next
morning there was a plant in the flower-
pot with a beautiful flower on it. "What
a beautiful flower", the old woman said,
"and how sweet it smells." At this very
moment the flower opened, filling the
room with its perfume and in it sat a
perfect little girl. She had hair like spun
gold, eyes like the deep blue sea, cheeks
like fresh apples and her mouth was like
a ripe cherry.
Is it necessary to say that the old
woman was very happy? At first, she
was so surprised that she did not know
what to do, and then she tried to think
of a name for her little girl. As she was
so very small she decided to call her
Teeny-Weeny. With a nutshell and a few
rose petals she made a bed for the girl.
And then it was time for the birdies to
come for their breakfast, and when they
started chirping, Teeny-Weeny started


I


to sing with such a beautiful little voice,
that they all kept quiet to listen to her.
And then there was a big party for all
the birds, and the butterflies, and the
bugs and many others. The frogs were
not invited, because they were so dirty,
and they would always start trouble.
Now the frogs were very mean and
they were awfully jealous when they
were not invited to Teeny-Weeny's party.
So one day, while the old lady was taking
a nap, and Teeny-Weeny was swimming
around in a dish, Papa Frog jumped
through the window and said: "Where
can I find a better wife for my son?" and
he grabbed Teeny-Weeny and went away
with her. When they reached an old
dirty ditch, the frog put her on a big leaf
in the middle, so she wouldn't get away,
and then he and his son started prepar-
ing for the wedding.
The son was as wet and muddy as his
father, and Teeny-Weeny cried to think
that she should marry that horrible
animal. Just then a butterfly flew by,
and seeing that Teeny-Weeny was in
trouble, he took hold of the stem of the
leaf on which she sat, and pulled it away
from the frog's house, and when they
reached the border, a bird took Teeny-
Weeny on his back and brought her
safely back to her mother. And they
lived happily, until the old woman was
sooooo old that she died. Then Teeny-
Weeny was all by herself, except when
the birds came to visit her. She missed
her mother very much, and she cried and
cried until the birds felt so sorry for her,
that they almost forgot how to chirp.
Then one of them said: "Teeny-Weeny,
you mustn't stay by yourself any longer.
Come along with me." Teeny-Weeny
climbed on his back, and they flew far
far away, until they reached a beautiful
garden. "Show me the nicest flower you
can find", the bird told Teeny-Weeny,
"and I'll put you down in it." Teeny-
Weeny chose a beautiful flower with
blue borders to match her eyes, and the

mata a sali cu un flor bunita na dje.
"Esta un bunita flor", e muher bieuw di,
"y esta dushi e ta hole'.' Na e mes mo-
mento e flor a habri y den dje tabatin un
mucha-muher chikito masha bunita. Su
cabei tabata di hilo di oro, su wowonan
mes blauw cu lamar, y su boca tabata
manera un cherries.
No tin nodi di bisa corn feliz e muher
bieuw tabata. PromB e tabata asina
asombrA cu e no tabata sa kico haci; des-
pues el a cuminza pensa un number pa e
duna e jioe. Como e tabata asina chikito
el a yame Chiquirritica. Despues di un
rato paharitonan a yega pa nan desayuno
y ora nan a cuminza fluit, Chiquirritica
a cuminza canta cu un stem asina dushi.
cu nan tur a keda keto pa nan scuch6. E
ora tabatin un fiesta grand pa tur e pa-



bird put her in it.
When Teeny-Weeny turned around she
saw a boy, as small as she herself, all
dressed in white with a tiny gold crown
on his head. When the boy saw Teeny-
Weeny he fell in love with her and he
asked her to marry him. When she said
yes, he took off his gold crown and put
it on Teeny-Weeny's head and then she
was the queen of the flowers, and from
that day on they lived together very
happily. Next time you see a white flower
with blue borders, peep in it; maybe
you'll see Teeny-Weeny and her hand-
some husband.


haritonan, barbuletnan, tornan y hopi
otro bestianan. Dorinan si no tabata van
de partij, pasobra semper nan ta sushi y
semper nan ta gusta buscamento di
question.
Awor e dorinan a keda masha jaloes
cu nan no tabata hende di fiesta y nan a
hura cu nan lo hunga e muher bieuw un
bon pego. Un dia cu e muher bieuw ta-
bata drumi y Chiquirritica tabata land
den un tay6 hundo, Papa Dori a bula
bentana y ora el a mira Chiquirritica e
di: "Unda mi por haya un mihor esposa
pa mi jioe-homber?" y el a cohe Chiquir-
ritica bai cune, sin puntra ho ni la. Ora
nan a yega na un tanki vies yen di lodo,
el a pone Chiquirritica riba un blaachi
grand mei-mei di e tanki pa e no hui bai.
E ora e cu su jioe-homber a cuminza pre-
para pa casamento.
E jioe-homber tabata mes sushi y vies
cu Papa Dori y Chiquirritica a yora te
snik, b16 di pensa cu lo e mester casa cu
e bestia mahos ey. Net un barbulet a pasa
y ora el a mira kico a pasa, el a mara
steel di e blaachi na un di su pianan y el
a trek Chiquirritica keto-keto hibe te na
canto. E ora un paharito a tume riba su
lomba y el a hiba Chiquirritica te den
scoochi di su mama. Y nan a biba hunto
masha feliz te dia cu e muher bieuw a
bira asina tanto bieuw cu el a muri.
E ora Chiquirritica a keda so, ma pa-
haritonan tabata bin bishit6 tur ora.
Chiquirritica a keda masha tristo y e ta-
bafa sinti masha falta di su mama, y e
tabata yora masha. Y e paharitonan ta-
batin asina duele di dje, cu casi nan a
lubida ta cor ta fluit. Un dia un di nan
di: "Chiquirritica, bo no por keda biba
so. Barn cu' mi." Chiquirritica a subi riba
su lomba y nan a bula bai leeuw aya, te
cu nan a yega na un hoffi masha grand
y masha bunita. "Scoge e flor cu bo ta
gusta mas", e paharito di, "y lo mi pone
bo aden." Chiquirritica a scoge un flor
blanco cu rand blauw, cu tabata pas cu
su wowonan y e paharito a pon4 aden.
Ora Chiquirritica a drei su cara y el a
mira un jonkuman mes grand cune, tur
bisti na blanco y cu un corona riba su
cabez. Ora e jonkuman a mira Chiquirri-
tica el a namor6 y el a pidi Chiquirritica
casa cune. Ora Chiquirritica a bisa si, el
a kita su corona di oro y el a bisti Chi-
quirritica e corona. E ora Chiquirritica
tabata reina di flornan y nan a keda biba
masha feliz den nan hoffi bunita.
Ora bo mira un flor blanco cu rand
blauw, loer aden; podiser bo mira Chi-
quirritica cu su cask.
