A Fast Way to Die.....

You're on your way back from the plant, a meeting or a party
late one evening anxious to get home. What's going to happen
to you if your car, traveling 55 m.p.h., skids and runs into a solid,
immovable tree or lamp post.
Calspan Corporation, formerly Cornell Automotive Research Cen-
ter, studied this type of accident in an experiment, and with the
help of slow motion film, discovered what the driver can expect:
1/10 second: Your front bumper and grillwork collapses and
slivers of steel penetrate the tree 11/2 inches or more.
2/10 second: The hood crumples as it rises and smashes into
the windshield. The spinning rear wheels leave the ground, the
grill disintegrates, and the fenders make contact with the tree, forc-
ing the rear to splay out over the front doors. Your body continues
to move forward at 55 m.p.h., but the structure of the car acts as a
brake on your forward momentum. The force acting on your bo-
dy is now 20 times that of gravity. Your body weighs 3,200 Ibs.
Your legs straighten out and snap at the knee joint.
3/10 second : Your body is now off the seat, torso upright, knees
against the dash. The frame of the steering wheel begins to bend.
Year head is near the sun visor, and your chest above the steering
4/10 second: The first 24 inches of the car's body are comple-
tely demolished. The rear end is traveling 35 m.p.h. and your body
55 m.p.h.
'5/10 second: Your fear-frozen hands bend the steering column
up almost vertically. The force of gravity impales you on the wheel
shaft. Steel punctures your legs and intercostal arteries. Blood
spurts into your lungs.
6/10 second : The impact has ripped your feet from your shoes,
The brake pedal shears off at the floorboard. The chassis bends
in the middle, shearing body bolts. Your head smashes into the
windshield. The rear of the car falls downward and the spinning
wheels dig into the ground.
7/10 second : The entire body of the car is forced out of shape.
Hinges tear, doors spring open, and the seat jams forward, pinning
you against the steering shaft.
Blood leaps from your mouth. Shock has frozen your heart. You
are now dead.

Lago's contribution to the Queen Wilhelmina Cancer Fund drive
Is accepted here by the organization's chairwoman, Mrs. C. H. Tromp
(2nd left), wife of Aruba's Lt. Governor Jossy F. Tromp. Presenting
the check is Miss L I. de Lange, co-editor of the Aruba Esso News,
while Mrs. D. Henrlquez, Treasurer of the Cancer Fund, and Lago's
PR Manager M. H. Henrlquez look on. The presentation took place
at the Governor's residence recently.

Q. What Is the difference be-
tween. CR'S and the regular
employees. Which of these
groups are loved most by
Management, the CR's or
the regular stupid guys who
work as laborers, peons
pipefitter C, etc., etc.?
A. Many years ago, John D.
Rockefeller, the founder of
Exxon (Esso) commented
that the Company's most im-
portant assets were its em-
ployees, and that philoso-
phy is still true today.
In its concern for its emplo-
yees, Lago, as part of Ex-
xon, does not favor (love)
one group of employees
over another.
Every employee is treated
as an individual, with indivi-
dual hopes and expecta-
tions, and the Company tries
its best to provide a work-
ing climate in which these
hopes and expectations can
flourish, so that the emplo-
yees can find satisfaction in
the job. This is a difficult
job in some cases, but La-
go works hard at it.
In many areas, both CR's
and regular employees are
treated alike. Examples are
the Annuity Plan, Thrift Plan,
Vacation Savings Plan, etc.
In the area of compensation,
the methods used to deter-

In the case of CR emplo-

Because of this, it is quite
common to have two CR
employees at the same level
with one man making more
money than the other be-
cause he accomplishes
more ; so the practice is to
reward each CR man on an
individual basis, within broad
salary guidelines.
To summarize, both CR's
and regular employees re-
ceive the same treatment in
some areas, while in other
areas, especially in com-
pensation, the treatment is

Although the job also requir-
ed lube oil filter, turbo charger
and bearing changes, the main
concentration was on the worn
clutch lining shoes a total of
42 pairs which required re-
placement. An integral part of
the clutch assembly, these shoes
line each of the ahead and re-
verse clutches which resemble
oversized tire rims. Through air
pressure in an air tube around
these rims, the shoes frictionally
grip the inner rim engaging the
cylindrical clutch drum for a for-
ward movement. The clutch me-
chanism driven by the tug's en-
gine is controlled by a lever in
the wheel house. Thus, for the
vessel's astern movement, the
ahead clutch is released and the
