We Can Learn from Others' Mistakes


A grinding machine is a wide-
ly used tool, both the stationa-
ry type and the portable one.
How important it is to use the
right grindstone and proper sa-
fety devices when operating them
may be clear from the follow-
ing accident. (Taken from: Oper-
ation Safety, a monthly select-
ion of world literature for pre-
venting accidents issued by the
Safety Institutes of Brussels/Am-
sterdam).
A tradesman borrowed a port-


able grinding machine from his
fellow worker to cut a block of
granite. As he felt the work was
not progressing rapidly, he re-
moved the protective cap and
the grindstone. He installed an-
other grindstone of the same
thickness, but with a permissible
RPM of 1300, while the motor of
the grinding machine had an
operating speed of 6000 RPM.
The first error the victim made
was to replace the grindstone by
not checking its allowable RPM,


On November 15, 1973, Lago
announced its intention to name
Mr. Henry V. Mowell as Vice Pre-
sident of the Company, succeed-
ing Mr. L. Johnston, Jr., on Fe-
bruary 1, 1974. It is expected
that Mr. Mowell will also be
elected Director.
Mr. Mowell started with Esso
Engineering in 1956 as a pro-
cess engineer. From September
1962 to September 1963 he was
on a development assignment
at Lago. Later he headed up
the group which designed the
Exxon Refinery in Benicia, Ca-
lifornia, and following that the
Amuay and Lago original desul-
furization plants. He was the
start-up leader for the Greek re-
finery and chemical complex


which should correspond with
the motor's operating speed. His
second error was not to put
back the protective cap.
Hardly had the tradesman be-
gan his work when the grind-
stone shattered and wounded
him severely in the face.
The following rule of that
company was not observed :
"Rapidly rotating equipment
must be fitted and equipped in
such a manner that in case of
breakage, loosing, loss of ad-
justment or bad functioning,
personnel cannot be hit by fly-

and later for the Benicia Refine-
ry. In 1969 he was named La-
go's Technical Manager.
While Technical Manager, Hen-
ry was active in planning and
developing the project to add a
second phase of hydrodesulfu-
rization capacity at Lago. As
the project developed he devot-
ed full time to it as Project Ge-
neral Manager and was respon-
sible for all phases of this work
until May of this year. Most re-
cently he conducted the nego-
tiations which led to a new
three-year labor contract.
Mr. Mowell is a member of
the Lions Club of Aruba and is
also active in Cubscout work in
Seroe Colorado. He and his wife
helped organize the Cubscout
pack and he served as the Pack
Leader for three years. At pre-
sent he is the Cubscout Com-
mittee Chairman. Other interests
include sailing, swimming, bow-
ling and golf.
Henry and his wife Nancy
have two boys, ages 11 and 14,
and a seven-year-old daughter.

ing parts or otherwise".
In addition to using the pre-
scribed protective equipment, in
such a case a tradesman should
check whether he is using the
right parts for the specific tool.
A personal protective piece
of equipment that should also
be used is heavy impact goggl-
es for eye protection, while the
grindstone should be of the
proper size, thickness and ca-
pacity corresponding with the
machine's speed.
All these precautions apply
not only on your daily job, but
whenever you use such tools
or equipment at home as well.

Teagle Scholarship Policy Limits

Grants for Under-Graduate Studies


The Lago Training Section
has announced that applications
for Teagle Scholarship conside-
ration for the school year 1974-
75 has been extended from De-
cember 1 to December 13, 1973.
Application forms are available
in Mr. Stefford Courtar's Offfice,
Room 265, in the Administration
Building They must be return-
ed to him not later than Thurs-
day, December 13.
The Teagle Foundation schol-
astic policy has been revised
recently to exclude scholarship
grants for undergraduate studies
to non-U.S. residents if this is
available in the student's home
country. This new provision does
not affect Aruba. To be favora-
bly considered for undergra-
duate work, a candidate must
rank at graduation from secon-
dary school in the top two-
fifths of his or her class.
Teagle scholarships are award-
ed for study at the following in-
stitutions: Cornell University,
Massachusetts Institute of Tech-
nology. Rice Institute, Tulane
University, Harvard Graduate
School of Business Administrat-
ion, and the Claremont, Califor-
nia Group of Colleges which
include Claremont Graduate
School and University Center,
Claremont Men's College, Harvey
Mudd College, Pitzer College,
Pomona College and Scripps
College. The most recent edu-
cational institutions added un-
der the revised policy is The
Wharton School Graduate Divi-
sion, University of Pennsylvania.
Applicants themselves must ap-

ply to and receive acceptance
from these universities.
Eligible for scholarships from
the Teagle Foundation are em-
ployees with at least three years
of credited service, (instead of
the former two years required),
children of employees, and
children of annuitants or emplo-
yees who died while in the ser-
vice of Lago or other Exxon af-
filiate.
Under the Teagle scholarship
program, nursing scholarships
will be offered again this year
to qualified employees of Ex-
xon affiliates and their children.
Nursing scholarships are avail-
able at any U.S. School of nurs-
ing approved by a State
Board of Nursing. Candidates
for nursing scholarships must
have acceptance at approved
schools in the U.S.A. before
their applications for scholar-
ship aid can be considered.
Applications for Nursing Schol-
arship grants can be submitted
up to June 15, 1974.
The Teagle Foundation was
established in 1944 by Mr. Wal-
ter C. Teagle, former President
of the Standard Oil Company
(N.J.) with his personal funds.
One of Mr. Teagle's desires was
to assist industrial workers and
their families "in acquiring edu-
cational advantages which might
not otherwise be obtainable."
While the foundation has no
connection whatsoever with any
company, it has been the means
of providing educational assist-
ance for worthy employees and
their sons and daughters.

First of Three New Shelters Opens

Near Tar Plant for Process Men


Fuels Division Operating per-
sonnel working in the Tar Plant
and Pipestills area now boast
a brand-new Process Shelter
where they can wash up, have
a quick lunch, or smoke before
returning to their daily duties.
Situated northwest of the Coale-
scers near the Tar Plant, this is
the first of three new plant
shelters being constructed this
year.
The Fuels Division personnel
began using the new quarters
on November 15, after a short
ceremony by Fuels Division
Process Foreman Jacinto Tromp,
followed by a treat of coffee,
coke and pastries.
The new shelter, which was
built as part of the plantwide
improvement program of emplo-
yees working facilities, measur-
es 16 ft. by 36 ft. and is aircon-
ditioned. In addition to office
space, it is essentially a lunch-
room with dining table and
chairs, cabinets for lunch stor-
age and a combination sink,
stove and refrigerator unit.
There are also lockers available
for employees' personal effects,
while a dividing wall separates
the wash area.
The new facilities were con-
structed mostly with prefabric-
ated materials, and have wall
paneling and wall to wall carpet-
ing. It is furthermore provided
with awning windows with

tinted glass louvers, while
the acoustic ceiling minimizes,
but doesn't drown altoge-
ther, the rhythmical sounds of
the units outside. The building's
exterior is off-white, trimmed
with Royal Blue.
The study and design for the
Lunch Shelter Project was de-
veloped by a joint Lago/Union
Planning Committee, while the
building was constructed by
Virgo Contractor with J.R. Wout
as sub-contractor for electrical
installation supervised by Bill
Kirk of Mechanical Electrical
Engineering Section. Aruba We-
genbouw N.V. paved the area
around the building.
Initially in charge of the build-
ing project was Jose M. Lade,
and most recently Hilton B.
Hassell, both of Mechanical -
Project Engineering Section,
who were assisted by Angel
Every of Mechanical Construc-
tion & Contracts Section.
At present underway is the
construction of a second Pro-
cess Shelter for Fuels Division
personnel in the Hydrogen Plant
area. This facility is sched-
uled for completion next month.
Another lunch shelter near the
Alky Plant will soon be ready
for Light Hydrocarbons person-
nel working in that area. These
three new facilities will bring
the total newly constructed field
shelters in the refinery to four.

0. I was surprised to read in
the Esso News, some time
ago, about a Planning Com-
mittee between Management
and IOWUA, which had some
work to be done on a sur-
vey, on the facilities for the
employees which Lago has
covered with such a big
page for publicity on the
Gasoline Pumphouse Build-
Ing, which was nothing
compared to the empha-
sis and the importance
of the HDS Process Building.
I want to know how many
times, or did Lago ever call
this committee and Inform
them or discuss with them
concerning the recent trailer,
or whatever you call this
thing that they have put up
near the Substation, which
partly Is going to be the Pro-
cess Building. I don't think
that such a building has
ever been discussed or pre-
sented to the committee and
accepted by the committee.
Because what we last heard
is that some fellow, somebo-
dy, an architect from the
States, came early In the year
with an approved map that
cost so many dollars, and
construction drawings and
they were even approved by
the committee and Manage-
ment, and they were going to
make three of them. One at
the HDS, one at the Hydrogen
units, and one at the Central
Pumphouse. Up to that time
we didn't hear anything, and
all of a sudden, we see La-
go Is putting up a building
here, so, I wonder, If Lago
ever contacted this commit-
tee on this project, or what
did ever happen to that Ame-
rican, Chicago fellow, who
came over with so many
beautiful maps, and who dis-
cussed them with a commit-
tee?
A. The architect's design for the
three buildings mentioned
called for a structure with
more office space than was
considered necessary. About


the time the architect's draw-
ings were being reviewed,
our HDS-II project was get-
ting underway. It was decid-
ed to let the project con-
tractor erect a building with
necessary facilities in the
HDS area, which includes an
air-conditioned lunch room,
a locker room and an office.
The floor plan for the build-
ing was reviewed by the
HDS Division Superintendent
with the IOWUA Union Ste-
ward, who concurred with
the planned layout. A sketch
of the floor plan was posted
on the bulletin board in the
temporary HDS Process Field
Office. If the facility proves
to be adequate, similar build-
ings will be erected in other
locations. Exact locations and
floor plans will be discussed
with the appropriate Union
Representatives in each area.
As a matter of additional in-
formation, since health stand-
ards call for separation of
toilet and eating facilities,
the subject of utility buildings
is being handled as a se-
parate matter.
The Planning Committee's
functions has been transfer-
red to the line organization
with contact for each area
between the Union repre-
sentatives and his area con-
tact. (The first of three new
shelters being built this year
for Process employees has
been completed. See Page 5
for details).

0. At this time, I would like to
know If It Is true that Lago Is
planning already to build a
formal parking lot at the new
gate recently opened at
"Smal" (old junk yard) that
Is at the western end of the
refinery and If It's going to
be used as a main entrance.
Because from what I see
that place can take, let's say,
about 500 cars If It Is true
that Lago has the Intention
of using that place, It would
be good to build it in such a
way that it can accommodate
from 200 to 500 cars there,
and so It can be used as a
main entrance, and later on,

Amor pa Musica

Traha su Propio
For di anja past, Hendrik
J. Fujooah di Technical Labo-
ratories Division ta dedicando
mayoria di su tempo y esfuerzo
na un hobby poco comun. El ta
armando cu pasenshi, pero cu
entusiasmo, un orgel electronic
for di un "kit" cual el a order
for di Hulanda.
Un graduado di bachiller den
Ingenieria Quimica for di HTS
na Dordrecht, Hulanda, na 1969,
Hendrik su interest den music
di orgel a cuminza tempo cu
ainda el tabata un estudiante
na Abraham de Veer School.
Semper el a gusta scucha mu-
sica popular toca ariba orgel, y
e sonido rico y vibrant di e
instrument complicit aki taba-
ta facinele. Y toch, e tempo ey
nunca el a pensa cu algun dia
e mes lo traha un di su mes.
Mientras cu el tabata cu va-
cantie na Hulanda anja pasa,
atrobe el a sintiele inspired pa e
bunita music di orgel toca na
cas di un amigo. Despues di
keda algun tempo cu e idea di
cumpra uno, el a bini na un de-
cision final pa e mes traha uno.
Na October anja pasa, Hendrik
a cuminza recibi e promer par-
tinan di e kit cual el a order for
di Electro-Post na Texel, uno di
e numeroso tiendanan cu ta
bende cos di hobby pa hende
mes traha.
Pa Hendrik, kende semper a
gusta over cu aparatonan elec-
tronico, esaki tabata un desafio.
Segun el tabata recibi e partinan,

irregularmente via bapor, e or-
gel a cuminza tuma forma. Si-
guiendo e mapanan, diariamen-
te el a dedica como cuatro ho-
ra armando e aparatonan elec-
tronico complicA y soldeer nu-
meroso wayanan.
E orgel electronic, cual ta
midi 4-1/4 pia hancho, 3-1/2 pia
halto y 2 pia hundo ora cu e ta
cla, ta componi di un genera-
dor di tono, "speakers", y fil-
ternan pa e various registernan
(of setnan di tubonan pa orgel)
cual ta yuda produci un varia-
cion di efectonan musical. Tam-
be el lo tin unidadnan pa rever-
beracion (of eco), vibracion y
prolongamento di un cierto to-
no despues cu laga e konopi
los. Su instrument en particu-
lar lo tin dos fila di 49 teclas
cada uno cu cuatro octaaf, y
diez-tres pedal pa tono. Den fu-
turo, y si e kier, e por haci e
sistema di teclanan mas grand
door di inclui un total di te
cuatro fila cu lo dun6 un capa-
cidad mas grand pa melodia.
E unico parti di e orgel cual no
a ser importA ta e cabinet cual
a ser traha aki mes.
Ora cu Hendrik complete e
impresionante instrument musi-
cal aki cual lo costele mas of
menos FIs. 1200, lo tin un de-
safio mas grand ta sperele. Ta
awor e ta bai sinja toca e orgel
pa asina e por bira maestro den
e mesun music bunita cual a
causa pa e haci e hobby excep-
cional aki.

One of the most time-consuming jobs is the soldering of numerous

Love for Music

To Build Own
Since the past year, Hendrik
J. Fujooah of the Technical -
Laboratories Division has been
spending most of his time and
efforts to a most unusual hob-
by. He is patiently, but enthu-
siastically, putting together an
electronic organ from a kit or-
dered from Holland.
A 1969 B.S. graduate in Che-
mical Engineering from the
Higher Technical School (HTS)
at Dordrecht, Holland, Hendrik's
interest in organ music began
while he was still a student
here at the Abraham de Veer
School. He had always enjoyed
listening to popular music play-
ed on the organ, and the rich, vi-
brant tones of this complicated
instrument fascinated him. Yet,
at the time he never thought
that he would some day build
his own.
While on vacation in Holland
last year, he again felt inspired
by lovely organ music played
at the home of a friend. After
toying with the idea for a while
to buy one, he came to the final
decision that he would build
one himself. In October last
year, Hendrik began receiv-
ing the first parts of the kit or-
dered from Electro-Post in
Texel, one of the numerous
hobby and do-it-yourself shops.
To Hendrik, who has always
enjoyed dabbling with electro-
nic gadgets, this was quite a
challenge. As the parts kept
coming in, irregularly by boat-


Induces Fujooah

Electronic Organ
mail, the organ began to take
shape. Following the blueprints,
he daily spent about four hours
assembling intricate electronic
devices and soldering nume-
rous wires.
The electronic organ, which
will measure 4-1/4 ft. wide.
3-1/4 ft. high and 2 ft. deep
when completed, is composed
of a tone generator, speakers,
and filters for the various regis-
ters (or sets of organ pipes)
which help produce a variety of
musical effects. It will also in-
clude units for reverberation, vi-
bration and sustain (meaning
prolongation of a given note af-
ter releasing the key). His par-
ticular instrument will have two
keyboards of 49 keys each with
four octaves, and thirteen tone
pedals. In the future, if he would
like to, he could amplify the
keyboard system to include a
total of up to four, which would
give him an even wider range
of melody. The only part of the
organ which has not been im-
ported is the cabinet which has
been built here.
When Hendrik completes this
impressive musical instrument
which is expected to cost him
about FIs. 1200, an even great-
er challenge awaits him. He is
now going to learn to play the
organ so that he will be able to
master the very same beautiful
music which motivated this ex-
ceptional hobby.

Future Engineers

What They Lear
Kenneth Booi and Robert
Kelly, both engineering students
in Holland, are currently spend-
ing a six-month practical train-
ing assignment at Lago under
the Company's Cooperative Edu-
cation Program.
Kenneth, who joined the Tech-
nical Process Engineering Di-
vision on August 1, is working
towards a chemical engineer-
ing degree at the HTS (Higher
Technical School) in Groningen,
Holland. He has been working
in the HDS Section where he
has come face to face with ma-
ny interesting aspects of the de-
sulfurization complex.
Here on the island he is keep-
ing busy by reviewing text-
books and playing chess. He re-
cently joined the Aruba Chess
Club. Kenneth will return to Hol-
land next year where he hopes
to graduate in 1975.
Robert Kelly is a chemical
technology student at the Ge-
meentelijke HTS in The Hague,
Holland. He began his training
assignment on November 1, and
has been assigned to the Tech-
nical Process Engineering Di-
vision, in the Fuel/Oil Move-
ments Section. He is currently
being trained on the company's
pipestill operations.
Back in Aruba after five years
in Holland, Robert likes being
home again with the family and
is enjoying the warm weather
for a while before going back
to study. He hopes to obtain his
degree in 1975.
Kenneth and Robert are just
two of many engineering stu-
dents who have selected Lago
for part of their practical train-
ing. Their college requires them


Robert Kelly


Practice Here

n at Dutch HTS
to train at least at three com-
panies during a period of 40
weeks. Since the Cooperative
Education Program was estab-
lished in August 1953, about
forty students have taken the
opportunity to acquire exper-
ience at Lago before becoming
full-fledged engineers.
