Former High School Undergoes Metamorphosis

To Consolidate Community Services Activities

The green two-story building with
its peculiar slant which once was the
Lago High School is no more. In its
place, is a stark-white, neat-looking
one-story building which soon will
house the Community Services. The
remodeled school will consolidate the
various maintenance and repair shops,
formerly located in several areas in
the community, into one single area,
along with offices, a warehouse and
other storage facilities
Many will remember the old long
school building with some nostalgia,
especially those who return "home"
to Seroe Colorado from time to time.
Designed by Robert Law Weed, a Flo-
rida architect, and with the excep-
tion of the auditorium completed
in 1949, this educational center "saw"

many eager youngsters pass through
its doors and leave as high school
graduates. It consisted originally of
a high school, offices and a huge
playground. A new auditorium was
added in 1953. Over the years, how-
ever, as the enrollment steadily de-
clined, the building proved too large
for the decreasing number of high
school students and the school was
moved to the Administration Building
in 1966.
Many other changes took place
since then. At first, the school was
used as a warehouse and storage for
various company departments. In
1967, the building again was used for
educational purposes. The Aruba Re-
search Center, established by City

who congratulated him and expressed
Lago's gratitude for his long career
with the Company. He also presented
him with the 40-year service emblem
and certificate in the presence of Me-
chanical Superintendent Mike Lan-
daiche, Zone Supervisor George Lam-
brinos and his colleagues Dominico
Leest and Janchi Werleman.
Feliz joined Lago on March 11,
1940, as a Mechanical Apprentice in
the Mason Department. He transfer-
red to Mechanical Machinist in 1943
where he advanced through the Me-
chanical Helper and Machinist posi-
tions to Machinist C in 1946. In July
1946 he joined the local military for-
ces and served until May 1, 1947. Af-
ter returning to Lago's Machinist Sec-
tion, he progressed to Machinist B in
1949 and to Machinist A in 1959. After
having acted as an Area Supervisor
since 1966, he was promoted to that
position in May 1970. On a few oc-
casions he also acted as Regional
Supervisor. His job title was changed
to Mechanical Supervisor in 1971. At
present he is assigned to the Ma-
chine Shop.

Lighternan di Butano por Ta Peligroso den Mal Ambiente
Lighternan di butano ta peligroso ? E contest ta obviamente si ora cu nan
ser mal usA of usa inapropiadamente, of usA den un mal ambient. Hopi mn-
cidentes a ser report na National Safety Council por escrito y acompanja pa
portret demonstrando cu lighternan a explota y ta capaz di "spray" hende cu
butano flamante. Aki ta sigui algun incidentenan cu a ser reportA :
Un zonido duro a ser scuchA door di hombernan cu tabata traha cerca di
un fornu recalentador di un laminador. E siguiente dia, nan a haya partisan
di un lighter di butano cu a explota. Afortunadamente, no tabatin ningun hen-
de cerca ora cu el a explota.
SUn welder a sufri quemaduras di tercer grado riba su pechp ora cu ca-
lor intense a causa cu e lighter di butano den su saco di camisa a explota.
Un homber cu tabatin un lighter den su saco di carson a ser severamen-
te kimA na part abao di su barica y den area di su heup ora cu un chispa a
drenta den su saco di carson y a haci cu e lighter a cende y explota.

Problema cu Presion
E incidentenan aki a secede den un ambiente industrial hostile caminda cu
posibilidad di ser exponi na hopi calor y na chispanan ta masha comun. Tin
otro maneranan den cual un lighter di butane por ta peligroso. Por ehempel,
perdida di presion di aire den un cabina den avion por causa cu un lighter
bao presion ta explota pa motibo di e diferencia di presion dentro di e lighter
y perdida di igual presion di aire den e cabina. Tambe, un lighter cu a ser
machic6 por laga cantidadnan excesivo di gas scapa y di repente cubri e vic-
tima su cara cu vlamnan ora cu contact ser haci cu chispa.
Pakico lighternan di butane ta peligroso ? Butano ta ser conteni como li-
quido bao presion den un tanki chikito. E ta sali como gas ora cu e valvula
ser habri. Ora cu butane ser exponi na calor, un expansion grand den volu-
men ta tuma lugar, aumentando e presion dentro di e tanki. Segun e presion
surpasa e forza den e tanki, esaki ta scheur. Si e victim ser gespuit cu e
gas haltamente volatile aki, esaki por result den quemaduras serio. Ora cu
e liquido ser gespray ariba panja, e efecto ta similar na un mecha den lampi
di kerosin.

The former High School now converted into a one-story Community Services facilities.

University of New York, used the
building as a research base for an-
thropological investigations for the
Caribbean Area. When these activi-
ties were discontinued in 1969, once
more the school was converted into
a storage facility. Lack of housing
facilities for the many immigrant wor-
kers for the HDS-I and II projects in
1970 and 1972, brought another chan-
ge for the school building. Although
part of it remained as a warehouse,
the first and second floor were con-
verted into bachelor's quarters. With
the completion of the projects in 1974,
the place which at one time echoed
the laughter of teenagers, was aban-
doned once more
Over the years, some of the class-
rooms were used for company train-
ing purposes an in recent years, the
building occasionally was the site of
the ALERT rescue training program.
In July last year, streamlining of
the old school began with the demo-
lition of the second floor and the re-
novation of the first floor, the former
school auditorium, office and storage
facilities. In the new spacious area,
the Community Services will be in a
better position geographically as
well to attend to Seroe Colorado
bungalow repairs, renovations and to
coordinate community work with con-
tractor personnel and Lago office buil-
ding custodians.

Lago High School Biew Cambia Completamente

Pa Consolida Actividad di Community Services

E eoificio berd6 di dos piso cu su
disenjo schuin cual un tempo tabata
Lago High School ya no ta mescos
mas. Den su lugar, tin un edificio
blanco, bunita di un solo piso cu
pronto lo acomoda Community Servi-
ces. E school remodelA lo consolida
e various shopnan di mantencion y re-
paracion, anteriormente plamA den va-
rios area di comunidad dentro di un
solo lugar, hunto cu oficinanan, un
warehouse y otro facilidadnan di war-
da material.
Hopi hende lo record e edificio
largo aki cu algun nostalgia, special-
mente esnan cu regresa "cas" na Se-
roe Colorado cada tanto tempo. Di-
senjA door di Robert Law Weed, un
arquitecto di Florida, y cu excep-
cion di e auditorium complete na
1949, e centro educative aki a "mira"
hopi hobennan ambicioso pasa door
di su portanan y sali como graduado-
nan di "high school". E tabata con-
sisti originalmente di un "high
school", oficina y speelplaats grand.
Un auditorium nobo a ser anjadi na
1953. Segun anjanan a pasa sinem-
bargo, y segun menos estudiante ta-
bata inscribi, e edificio a result mu-
cho grand pa e poco estudiantenan

di "high school" y e school a ser mu-
d& pa Administration Building na
Hopi otro cambionan a tuma lugar
for di e tempo ey. Na principio, e
school tabata ser usA como ware-
house y lugar pa warda material pa
varies departamento di compania. Na
1967, e edificio atrobe a ser usA pa
motibonan educativo. E Aruba Re-
search Center, estableci door di City
University di New York, a usa e edifi-
cio como un base di studio pa inves-
tigacionnan antropol6gico pa area di
Caribe. Ora cu e actividadnan aki a
ser descontinua na 1969, una vez mas
e school a ser convert den un facili-
dad pa warda material. Falta di lu-
garnan adecuado pa biba pa e hopi
trahadornan imigrantenan pa e Pro-
yectonan HDS-I y II na 1970 y 1972, a
trece un otro cambio pa e edificio
aki. Aunque cu parti di dje a keda
como warehouse, e promer y segun-
do piso a ser convert den dormito-
rionan pa homber soltero. Dia cu e
proyectonan a keda cla na 1974, e
lugar cual antes a resona cu hari di
teenagernan, a keda abandonA un

Figaroa, Willems Attain 40th Service Anniversary
(Continued from page 1)

At Lago, Feliz took courses in Work
Direction-1, Effective Supervision, Cri-
tical Path Method, Effective Manage-
ment and followed several Fire Trai-
ning programs.
On his service anniversary, Chris-
mo A. Willems, an Operator in Pro-
cess Fuels Division, was honored at
a dinner at Dragon Phoenix by Lago's
Process Manager Don J. Gardner who
congratulated him for reaching his
40-year service milestone and presen-
ted him with the corresponding ser-

vice certificate and emblem. Also
present on this occasion were Divi-
sion Superintendents Joaquin Croes
and Raul Bisbal, Chrismo's wife Ce-
cilia and daughter Grace Ras.
Ale began his career at Lago as a
Laborer in the Carpenter Department
on May 9, 1940. After serving in the
local army from March 24 to October
1945, he returned to Lago and was as-
signed as a Process Helper in the
Light Oils Finishing Department. Here
he progressed to Treater in 1951 and

to Assistant Operator in 1950. He
earned promotion to Operator in De-
cember 1965. During his forty years,
he worked some 26 years in LOF
Sweetening and Treating Plants, later
in the Fuels Division's Vacuum and
hydrogen units and in recent years
at Pipestill No. 5 and the Tar boxes.
At Lago, he followed an LOF Trai-
ning program and took a gas testing
course and also completed an Inter-
mediate English Course at the Aruba
Commercial School.

Butane Lighters Can Be Hazardous in Hostile Environments
Are butane lighters hazardous ? The answer is obviously yes if they are abu-
sed, used improperly, or carried into hostile environments. Many incidents
have been reported to the National Safety Council in writing and substantiated
by photographs showing that lighters have exploded and are capable of spra-
ying people with flaming butane. Here are some examples of reported inci-
dents :
A lound bang was heard by men working near a rolling mill reheating fur-
nace. The next day, they found parts of an exploded butane lighter. Fortu-
nately, no one was nearby when it exploded.
A welder suffered third degree burns across his chest when intense heat
caused a butane lighter in his shirt pocket to explode.
A man carrying a lighter in the pocket of his trousers was every burned in
the groin and hip area when a spark entered his pocket and caused the ligh-
ter to ignite and explode.
Problems with Pressure
These incidents occurred in a hostile industrial environment where exposure
to high heat and sparks are very common. There are other ways a butane
lighter can be hazardous. For example, a loss of cabin air pressure in an air-
craft can cause a pressurized lighter to explode due to the difference of pres-
sure in the cabin. Also, a lighter that has been damaged could release exces-
sive amount of gas and suddenly engulf the victim's face with flames when a
spark is struck.
Why are butane lighters dangerous ? Butane is contained as a liquid under
pressure in a small tank. It is released as a gas when the valve is opened.
When butane is exposed to heat, large volume expansion takes place, increa-
sing the pressure inside the tank. As the pressure exceeds the strength of
the tank, a rupture occurs. If a victim is sprayed with the highly volatile gas,
this can result in severe burns. When the liquid is sprayed unto clothing, the
effect is similar to a wick in a kerosene lamp.
Pocket rockets?
William F. Foley, Chief of Fire Services, Chicago Fire Department, ran some
tests at the Chicago Fire Academy some time ago. Lighters were obtained in
local stores under a variety of names and were clearly labeled as dangerous
under certain conditions. Although none of the lighters exploded, all took off
like rockets when punctured. Shortly after the tests, Fire Commissioner Ri-
chard Albrecht issued an order prohibiting all personnel in field fire fighting
ranks from carrying butane lighters. This should be sufficient warning to all
people regarding the use of butane lighters.
Home Accidents
The butane lighter hazard obviously is not restricted to industrial situations.
Numerous incidents have occurred in homes where injuries were suffered due
to burns during refilling or misuse. Some of these victims were children, but
the majority were adults who spilled the lighter fluid on their hands, clothing,
curtains, or nearby furniture. Ignition of the fluid resulted in all kinds of body

YMCA Fund Drive Team
At Lago Earns Trophy
For Outstanding Contribution
When the YMCA Fund Drive Team
at Lago set their goal this year at
FIs. 12,500 in the annual campaign,
they set about collecting contributions
with their usual zest an zeal. Little
were they to know that this year
would be one of extraordinary
achievement. At the end of the fund
drive, they surpassed their goal by
collecting FIs. 15,443 or 123% of the
stipulated amount, the highest per-
centage of all island teams.
Thanks to the excellent contribu-
tions of Lago employees and contrac-
tor employees working at Lago, this
achievement allowed them to keep
the Crystal Bird Trophy, a trophy for
this year's fund drive which had been
rotated each week to the team with
the highest percentage.
The YMCA Fund Drive team at La-
go was first awarded this trophy on
April 17, about three weeks after the
island-wide YMCA Fund Campaign
began. At the time they had already
reached 930/0 of their goal. The fol-
lowing week, however, they lost the
trophy to another team, but continued
their efforts and in doing so, surpas-
sed their goal beyond their expecta-
With the best performance of all is-
land teams, the team at Lago helped
the YMCA surpass their overall goal
of FIs. 75,000 by Fls. 3 000.-
Rather than keep the trophy, the
team has decided to return the bird
to the YMCA at the beginning of the
1981 Fund Drive so it may again "fly'
from team to team and hopefully re-
turn again to Lago.

Effective Supervision Course
Teaches Supervisors Skills
To Do Job More Effectively
Thirty-five management members
from various departments attended
an Effective Supervision Course in the
Administration Building this month.
The participants, who were nomina-
ted by their respective departments,
attended the course in two groups.
The first group of nineteen followed
the one-week program from May 19
to 23, while the second group of fif-
teen employees attended the sessions
during the week of May 26 The first
session was introduced by Vice Presi-
dent Per Nord, while the second
course was opened by Vice President
Roy M Douglas.
The supervisory development pro-
gram, formerly called Effective Mana-
gement Course, was taught by George
Hudanish of EIA, Coral Gables, who
conducted a similar course at Lago
two years ago. He was assisted by
Elias Fingal of Employee Relations,
who coordinated the training program.
Other part-time instructors were Ray
Farro (Work Methods Improvements),
Ev Beaujon (Safety for Supervisors
and Industrial Hygiene), Henry Coffi
and Eddy Thode (Labor Relations and
New Collective Working Agreement).
To give participants maximum be-
nefit of the course, they were given
questionnaires as pre-course mate-
rial, which they completed and sub-
mitted on the first session for dis-
cussion during the 40-hour course.
Each group was split into teams
consisting of members of the same

gernan bao cierto condicionnan. Aunque ningun di e lighternan a explota, tur
a bula den aire manera raket ora cu nan a ser bor4. Algun tempo despues di
e pruebanan, Fire Commissioner Richard Albrecht a public un reglamento
prohibiendo tur personal den ramo di pagamento di candela di usa lighternan
di butano. Esaki mester ser suficiente aviso pa tur hende en cuanto usamento
di lighternan di butano.

E peliger di lighter di butano obviamente no ta limit& na situacionnan indus-
trial. Numeroso incident a socede den casnan caminda heridanan a ser su-
fri a causa di quemaduras durante yenamento of mal uso di butano. Algun di
e victimanan aki tabata much, pero mayoria tabata hende grand kendenan a
basha e liquid di lighter ariba nan man, panja, cortina, of mueblenan den ve-
cindario. Cendemento di e liquid a result den tur tipo di quemaduras.

Algun Sugerencia pa Seguridad
Naturalmente, si Bo no ta huma, Bo no tin mester di usa un lighter. Sinem-
bargo, si Bo ta human y Bo ta usa lighter, aki ta sigui algun precaucionnan cual
Bo por sigui :
Mantene Bo lighter leuw for di tur fuente di calor of candela.
Nunca somet'l6e na temperaturanan mas cu 1200 F (490 C) pasobra esa-
ki ta causa rapido expansion di butano. No laga e lighter den auto ca-
minda solo por causa un aumento di calor.
Tene e lighter for di Bo cara ora cu Bo cende e chispa. Ahusta e vlam
pa e ta mas chiquito possible. Un vlam cortico ta reduci e peliger. No
usa ningun lighter cual no ta disenjA pa sera e fluho di gas automati-
camente. E mester por paga su mes. Un protection contra biento
rond di e vlam ta recomendA.
No trata di yena un lighter cerca di un vlam, stoof di gas of electric,
of cualkier tipo di calentador. No hiba un bleki di butano abordo di un
aeroplano pasobra e combustible por scapa den situacionnan di presion
atmosf6rico abao. E por result den un explosion y cubri pasaheronan
den vecindario cu vlamnan.
Mas important ainda, sinja Bo yiunan pa no hunga cu lighternan of swavel.
Quemaduranan ta haci mashi hopi dolor, por disfigura y hopi biaha por ta
fatal. Cu algun conocemento di e peligernan y algun guia, Bo por usa tur tipo
di lighter cu mas seguridad.

Butane Lighter Hazards
(Continued from page 6)
Some Safety Suggestions
Obviously, if you are a non-smoker, you don't need to carry a lighter. How-
ever, if you smoke and use a lighter, here are some precautions you can fol-
low :

- Keep your lighter away from all sources of heat or fire.
- Never subject it to temperatures over 1200 F (49 C) because this cau-
ses rapid expansion of the butane. Do not leave the lighter in a car
where the sun can cause a build-up of heat.
Plastic lighters should not be exposed to any kind of sparks, because
contact can melt the plastic and release butane gas which ignites very
Keep the lighter away from the face when striking the spark. Adjust
the flame to the shortest possible height. A short flame lessens the ha-
zard. Don't use any lighter that is not designed to shut off the gas flow
automatically. It should be self-extinguishing. A windshield around
the flame is recommended.
Do not attempt to refill a lighter near a flame, electric or gas stoves, or
any kind of heater. Do not carry a can of butane aboard an airplane be-
cause the fuel may escape in a low atmospheric pressure situation It
could result in an explosion and engulf nearby passengers in flames.
Most important of all, teach children not to play with lighters or matches.
Burns are extremely painful, disfiguring and too often fatal. With some
knowledge of the hazards and some guidance, you can use all kinds of lighters
more safely.
