HBF to Build 74 Houses;
Construction Starts Soon
Construction of seVenty-four houses,
the third group by the Home Building
Foundation, will begin next month in
the Seroe Preto district, northwest of
the present Lagoville houses. The new
houses will be of an improved design
over previous HBF homes, and will be
located on a sloping site which will give
them a view of the sea.
Forty-eight of the new dwellings will
have five rooms (three bedrooms),
while the remaining twenty-six houses
will have four rooms (two bedrooms).
Each house will be located on a plot of
ground 400 square meters in size.
Construction of roads in the Seroe
Preto area is now under way, and actual
construction of the new houses will
begin shortly. It is estimated that the
new housing project will be completed
by the end of the year.
Employees who have any questions in
connection with the Home Building
Foundation are urged to get in touch

On behalf of Safety Sam, Oscar Antonette, of the Safety Department, presents a
manicure set to Rosa Orman for being able to tell him her team's score in the Safe
Workers' Contest, its standing, her captain's name, and what was on the current
poster advertising the Contest. This was the beginning of a plan whereby a member
of the Safety Department will go out into the various parts of the refinery, ask
questions about the Contest, and give prizes to those answering them correctly. Miss
Orman works in the Plant Laundry (for more about the safety consciousness of
Laundry employees, see page 3). Remember, Safety Sam will be around again soon
- are you going to win-a prize by knowing the answers to the questions he might
ask you?

As January draws to a close, the half-way mark of
the first phase of the Safe Workers' Contest will be
reached. Half the first six months of the Contest will
be over, and the twelve teams will begin to have a
more definite idea of just where they stand.
Regardless of where your team stands at this half-
way mark, it is highly significant that great strides
have been made in the further reduction of accidents.
Since the Contest began three months ago, most of

It is significant, too, that a closer exchange of ideas
from men throughout the refinery has been made
possible by the Contest. Team captains and their
lieutenants, representing crafts and departments from
all locations in the plant, meet at regular intervals to
discuss ways of improving their safety records. If one
team, or a group within a team, sets up a safety
program which is proving effective in reducing acci-
dents, that idea is passed on to the leaders of the
other teams. This free exchange of ideas gives every-
body the benefit of any practical, worthwhile ideas
which have resulted from one team's efforts to better
promote safety in its group.
As the Contest reaches the half-way market in the
-first phase, there is no doubt that the captains and
their lieutenants are doing a wonderful job in making
their team members conscious of working safely and
preventing accidents. Much credit must go to these
captains for the work they're doing, not only in reduc-
ing accidents among their own teams, but in passing
on proven ideas to other teams so that they too can
take advantage of them.

Laundry 1

Completes Five Years
Without Lost Time Injury

Last month the Plant Laundry
completed its fifth year without a
single lost time injury, piling up a
total of 1,404,584 man hours during
which no employee suffered a lost
time accident. In addition, the
Laundry finished the year with
164,009 man hours since the last
minor injury of any kind.
This impressive safety record gave
the Laundry a yearly safety figure of
.75 non-disabling injuries per thousand
employees; with the exception of several
very small office groups this is the best
safety record in the refinery.
And 1948's record of .75 represented
an improvement over 1947's figure of
non-disabling injuries per thousand
employees, which was 3.55. And it re-
presents a tremendous improvement
over the 1946 figure of 14.56 non-dis-
abling injuries per thousand employees.
During the past year the Laundry
had one minor injury charged against
its record. This injury, in May, brought
to an end 175,675 man hours, covering
a period of seven months and eleven
days, without an injury of any kind.
Following that injury in May, the em-
ployees in the Laundry started another
string of months in which not one minor
injury was suffered. By the end of De-
cember, that record had reached 164,009
sf.fe man hours.
The Laundry's safety record is even
uLore impressive when one cjnslders the
,i..cty-three pieces of equipment there
with temperatures ranging from 338
to 375 degrees. The majority of the
employees are continually surrounded
by various pieces of hot equipment;
yet, through constant vigilance and pre-
cautions, they avoid even a slight burn.
The fine results achieved by the
Laundry in safety were not accomplish-
ed without the possibility of many inju-
ries, both lost time and minor. For
c.-ample, a flaw once developed in the
Yu:e town hoist steel c..ble. A com-
pI':e back with a ton load of clothes
in 'Le extL actor basket could have kill-
ed or seriously injured the extractor
operators. Another time a nipple of a
gauge on a one hundred pound steam
line ruptured; the steam escaped
directly between two workers. Neither

was burned, although both might have
suffered serious burns.
Bullets Present Hazards
In addition, numerous objects are al-
ways coming in with the laundry that
represent a constant hazard to the em-
ployees handling them. Sharp nails,
razor blades, pins, needles, bullets,
centipedes, scorpions, rats practically
all objects that involve some danger in
handling come into the Plant Laundry
in the bundles and baskets.
Installed in a prominent place in the
Laundry is a huge scoreboard which
shows the number of injuries per month,
the monthly average, number of safe
man hours, and the yearly total of safe
man hours. This board shows employees
at a glance just where they stand in
their safety efforts.
To accomplish this fine safety record
required the cooperation and interest of
all Laundry employees. At the begin-
ning meetings were held among all the
employees in which each previous minor

Employees of the Plant Laundry are shown at top of page, shortly after they completed
five years without a single lost time accident. At the end of December their safety
record stood at 1,404,584 man hours since the last lost time injury, and 164,009 man
hours since the last injury of any kind. At left is Laundry foreman E. F. Keesler.
Razor blades, fish hooks, open knives, needles, bullets, nail files, safety pins, hypo-
dermic needles, nails, those are just a few of the sharp objects (above) which conti-
nually come into the Plant Laundry in the bundles. All of them present constant hazards
to the employees handling them, yet, despite these hazards, the Laundry has achieved
a top safety record.
Shown below is the scoreboard which is placed in a prominent place in the Plant
Laundry. It records the number of man hours achieved since the last lost time injury
(which was in December 1943), and the number piled up since the last minor injury.

Besides regular bouquets of every imaginable sort of blossom, the Women's Club
Flower Show January 12 brought forth some novel table arrangements. One of the
prizewinners, devised by Mrs. I. Minton, was this Christmas display of a coconut palm

Dance of the Twelve Princesses

There was once an old king who had
twelve beautiful daughters. They slept
in one large room with only one door,
which the king himself locked every
night after the princesses had gone to
bed. But every morning the princesses'
shoes were completely worn out, as
though they had been dancing all night
long, and there just wasn't any explana-
tion for it.
One day the king announced that the
man who could tell him where the prin-
cesses went every night, could choose a
wife among them; on the other hand, if
he could not give an explanation after
three days, he would loose his head.
Many young princes went to the
palace to have a try. But somehow or
other they all fell asleep and when
their time was up, they could give no
explanation to the king, and lost their
One day a brave man left his home
to go up to the palace and try his luck.
As he lived far from there, he had to
spend the night in a forest. He had just
sat down to eat his meal, when an old
woman appeared before him and begged
for a piece of bread. The man, who was
very kindhearted, not only gave her the
piece of bread she asked for, but went
on and gave her half of his whole meal;
then he let her have a drink from his
bottle of wine. When the old woman had
eaten she wanted to leave, but the man
told her to stay; he would build a fire
and she could warm herself before going
Now this old woman happened to be
a good fairy. She knew all about the
brave man's plans and decided to repay
him for his kindheartedness. Therefore
she gave him a magic cloak that would
make him invisible as soon as he put it
on; she also warned him nAt to drink
from the wine the princesses would
serve him.
The next day the man reached the
palace and was shown into the room
adjoining the princesses' bedroom. As
soon as the king had locked the door
and gone away, one of the princesses
brought him a glass of wine. He thanked
her for it, but no sooner had she turned
her badk than he emptied the glass
under his pillow, and putting his head
down on it, pretended to be asleep.
When the princesses heard him snor-
ing, they thought that the sleeping drug
they had put in the wine had worked.
The eldest then-moved her bed and lift-
ed a big square stone; then they dis-
appeared through the opening. The
brave man put on his magic cloak and
followed them. They passed through a
beautiful garden full of trees with silver
leaves. The man cut off a twig to take
back withjim as proof. Then they came
to the water and twelve handsome
princes were waiting in twelve canoes
and when the princesses went aboard,
the man jumped into one, well-hidden
by his magic cloak.
On the other side was a beautiful
palace; music could be heard through
the hundreds of windows and doors that
stood open.
Princes and princesses danced till all
hours, and when they started to leave
the man hurried along in front of them,
and was in bed snoring when they came
to look at him.
The same happened on the second
night, but this time the trees had golden
leaves, and again the man cut off a
twig; on the third night the trees had
diamond leaves, and this time too the
man cut off a twig to prove to the king
that he had been there.
When the three days had passed the
man gave the king the whole story and
the twigs were proof enough. The prin-
cesses were called before their father
and they confessed the truth. The brave
man was then allowed to choose among
them and as he was not very young him-
self he chose the eldest. A brilliant
wedding was celebrated, and everybody
/ 7 was merry and happy and gay.

Lago's Hospital, already one of the
best equipped in the entire Caribbean
area, added another important facility
recently, an oxygen tent, shown in
operation in the photograph.
The tent is useful in pneumonia,
heart conditions of various sorts, or
any condition in which it is necessary
to increase the amount of oxygen a
patient is receiving in the air he
Air is normally about twenty per
cent oxygen. For patients who need
more, the Hospital can now control
accurately the amount of oxygen go:ng
into the tent, as well as the temperature
inside. Oxygen tents have not been
practical here in the past, because of
heat inside the tent. The new unit, how-
ever, is the most up-to-date obtainable,
and has its own air-conditioning facility
built in.

Nine Elected to Colony Groups
Six persons were elected to the Esso
Club Advisory Committee, and three to
the Lago Colony Advisory Committee,
in final elections held early this month.
Each of the newly-elected members on
both committees will serve for a period
of two years.
Elected to the Esso Club group were
R. MacMillan, Dr. W. Konigsberger,
S. Hartwick, K. H. Walker, G. A.
Quackenbos, and Nora Walsh.
New representatives on the Lago Co-
lony Advisory Committee are J. P.
Wiley, A. M. Gravendijk, and W. P.

injury was discussed. Each employee
was requested to constantly look for
any hazards.
One of the most important features
of the drive toward safety was a plan
for the Laundry general foreman, the
foreman 1, and the section supervisor
each to speak with all new employees.
Each explained the importance of safety
and conducted the new employee
through the Laundry, pointing out any
possible hazards. Such things as steam
lines, presses, sock forms, and safety
appliances were pointed out. Then the
safety scoreboard and the existing re-
cord of the plant was discussed. These
points were all covered before the em-
ployee was assigned to a work section
on a specific job. Such precautions have
been instrumental in the prevention of
accidents among newer, less experienced
The cooperation, interest, and enthu-
siasm of all Laundry employees has re-
sulted in this fine safety record. During
1948 only one minor injury was chalked
up against them during 1949 the em-
ployees of the Plant Laundry are deter-
mined to improve upon last year's
