James A. Brooke Assumes Overall Coordination

Of Lago's Industrial Security Activities March 1

Effective March 1, 1976, James A.
Brooke assumed responsibility for the
overall coordination of the Company's
industrial security activities Mr.
Brooke has transferred from Lagoven
(formerly Creole) in Venezuela.
Mr. Brooke comes to Lago with
over nineteen years of experience in
law enforcement both in the U.S.A.
and as a foreign police adviser for
the U.S A Government in Japan, Tur-
key and San Salvador, and in indus-
trial security, fire protection and safe-
ty functions for various affiliates of

Exxon. His foreign assignments were
with Esso Standard Libya, Inc. from
1967 to 1972, and more recently as
Industrial Security Superintendent for
the Western Division of Lagoven in
the Bolivar Coastal Fields, Zulia State.
A graduate from Michigan State
University, East Lansing, Michigan in
1956, Mr. Brooke received his B. S.
degree in General Police Administra-
tion from the School of Criminal Jus-
tice. He has also attended and co-
ordinated various security, safety and
fire prevention courses and seminars

The policy of this Corporation, as stated by the board of directors years ago
and reaffirmed by the board at its September 1975 meeting, is one of strict ob-
servance of all laws applicable to business

Our policy does not stop there. Even where the law is permissive, Exxon
chooses the course of the highest integrity. Local customs, traditions, and
mores differ from place to place, and this must be recognized. But honesty
is not subject to criticism in any culture. Shades of dishonesty simply invite
demoralizing and reprehensible judgements A well-founded reputation for
scrupulous dealing is itself a priceless company asset.

An overly-ambitious employee might have the mistaken idea that we do not
care how results are obtained, as long as he gets results. He might think it
best not to tell higher management all that he is doing, not to record all trans-
actions accurately in his books and records, and to deceive the Corporation's
internal and external auditors. He would be wrong on all counts.

We do care how we get results. We expect compliance with our standard
of integrity throughout the organization. We will not tolerate an employee who
achieves results at the cost of violation of laws or unscrupulous dealing. By
the same token, we will support, and we expect you to support, an employee
who passes up an opportunity or advantage which can only be secured at the
sacrifice of principle.

Equally important, we expect candor from managers at all levels, and com-
pliance with accounting rules and controls. We don't want liars for managers,
whether they are lying in a mistaken effort to protect us or to make themselves
look good. One of the kinds of harm which results when a manager conceals
information from higher management and the auditors is that subordinates
within his organization think they are being given a signal that company poli-
cies and rules, including accounting and control rules, can be ignored when-
ever convenient. This can result in corruption and demoralization of an orga-
nization. Our system of management will not work without honesty, including
honest bookkeeping, honest budget proposals, and honest economic evalua-
tion of projects.

It has been and continues to be Exxon's policy that all transactions shall be
accurately reflected in its books and records. This, of course, means that fal-
sification of its books and records and any off-the-record bank accounts are
strictly prohibited.

formation on the more than 40,000
stock items at Lago. Because the
entire catalog has been reduced to a
mere 27 microfiches each contain-
ing over two hundred 81,"x11" pages
- much time will now be saved when
seeking data for ordering material.
Instead of poring through the va-
rious sections of the huge catalog to
find a particular item, an employee
now refers to the bluish color micro-
fiches after having consulted the al-
phabetical index file to obtain the
stock item number. Each of the films
bears the beginning and ending sym-
bol number block at the top and an
index page in the lower right hand
corner for quick reference. Once the
correct microfiche has been selected
it is introduced into the Vantage 1
Reader and by operating a switch, the
page indicating the stock number and
catalog description of the material to
be ordered appears on a screen. Fur-
ther information on quantity and price
of material can be requested via a
CRT which is tied in to the Materials
Real Time System.
Microfiche reading is a modern,
practical system which will simplify
ordering of stock items, eliminate ma-
nual updating of the catalog and the
costly printing of catalog pages. All
catalog pages are now kept up to
date on the master tape of the com-
puter which is periodically converted
into microfiches at the Esso Research

Charged with the conversion of the
parts catalog to the microfiche sys-
tem were MCS Commercial Section
personnel who were able to produce
magnetic tapes from existing pro-
gram for ERE. Coordinators for
this work were Earl Cook of MCS and
Albino Yarzagaray of Materials Divi-
sion, while W. L. Philips of Materials -
Catalog Section ordered the Vantage
1 Readers and gave instructions on
their use

Exxon su Poliza di Etica Comercial


E p61iza di e Corporacion aki, manera stipula pa junta di directornan hopi
anja pasa y reafirma pa e junta na su reunion di September 1975, ta uno di es-
tricto cumplimento cu tur leynan aplicable pa su negoshi.

Nos p61iza no ta stop aki. Hasta unda ley ta permisivo, Exxon ta escoge
e camina di mas halto integridad. Costumbernan, tradicionnan y costum-
bernan estableci local ta diferencia di lugar pa lugar y esaki mester ser reco-
noci. Pero honestidad no ta sujeto na criticism den ningun cultural. Som-
bra di dishonestidad simplemente ta invita huzgamento demoralizante y con-
denable. Un reputation bon fund pa tratamento cu escripulo den su mes
ta un ventaha valioso pa compania.

Un empleado demasiado ambicioso por tin e idea robez cu no ta importa
nos com resultadonan ta ser obteni, basta cu e haya resultado. El por pensa
cu ta mehor pa no bisa gerencia mas halto tur loke el ta haci, pa no anota
tur transaccionnan exactamente den su boekinan y registtronan, y pa ganja e
Corporacion su auditornan interno y externo. El lo ta robez ariba tur punto.

Ciertamente ta importa nos com resultadonan ta ser logra. Nos ta spera
cumplimento cu nos standard di integridad den henter e organization. Nos lo
no tolera un empleado kende ta obtene resultadonan a cost di violacion di
leynan of tratonan sin escruipulo. Den mes sentido, nos lo apoya, y nos ta spe-
ra cu bo ta apoya, un empleado cu ta laga un oportunidad of un ventaha pasa
cual por ser asegura solamente door di sacrificio di principio

Igualmente important ta, cu nos ta spera franqueza for di gerentenan na
tur nivel, y cumplimento cu reglanan y controlnan di contabilidad. Nos no kier
ganjadornan como gerentenan, sea cu nan ta ganja den un esfuerzo erroneo
pa proteha nos of pa nan keda bon mira. Uno di e clase dt danjo cu ta re-
sulta ora un gerente ta sconde information pa gerencia mas halto y e auditor-
nan ta cu subordinadonan dentro su organization ta pensa cu nan ta ser du-
na un senjal cu polizanan y reglanan di compania, incluyendo reglanan di con-
tabilidad y control, por ser ignora ki ora cu ta convenient. Esaki por result
den corruption y demoralizacion di un organization Nos sistema di gerencia
lo no traha si no tin honestidad, incluyendo tenemento di boeki honestamente,
proposicionnan honest pa presupuesto, y evaluacion economic honest di

Semper tabata y ta sigui di ta e pdliza di Exxon cu tur transaccionnan mes-
ter ser refleha exactamente den su boekinan y registronan. Esaki, natural-
mente, ta nifica cu falsificacion di su boekinan y registronan y cualkier cuen-
tanan no-oficial na banco ta strictamente prohibit.
