Role


SpeakersStress
Its Relation To

Plant Progress
Manpower its use, capabilities
and expenses was the subject
most discussed in the papers pre-
sented by members of the Execu-
tive Committee at the sixth annual
Management Information sessions.
In attendance at the three morning
sessions, April 20, 21 and 22, were
Lago's nearly seven hundred mem-
bers of management. They heard O.
Mingus, president; W. A. Murray,
vice-president and general manager;
F. W. Switzer, general superinten-
dent; F. C. Donovan, superintendent
of service and staff departments,
and C. B. Garber, comptroller.
Executive management's concern
over manpower and its many facets
ran through all five presentations.
Highlighted were costs in relation to
competition; manpower replacement,
reduction and accomplishment, and
operation of non-refining and refin-
ing facilities. It was a realistic pic-
ture that was presented. Little doubt
was left in the minds of management
members that the petroleum industry
becomes more competitive every day.
Mr. Mingus spoke of over-produc-
tion and difference in price that fa-
vored recently discovered Libyan
crude oil. Mr. Switzer related how
the impact of new refinery construc-
tion is being felt in the surplus of
refined products. Mr. Murray stated
that the day of indulging in niceties
not vital to the operation's aim is
no longer with Lago or any other
international business. Nevertheless,
the speakers upheld the ability of
Lago's employees as the company's
balancing asset in face of world com-
petition. Lago's president stated
pointedly: "One of our big advan-
tages is our know-how. As represent-
ed by members of management it is
not exceeded by anyone. I believe we

HolmanToRetire;
Rathbone, Welch
Hold Top Posts
The Standard Oil Co. (N.J.) early
this week announced changes in its
top management. They result from
the impending retirement of Eugene
Holman, chairman of the parent com-
pany's Board of Directors. M. J.
Rathbone, president since 1954, was
named chief executive officer and
chairman of the executive committee.
Leo D. Welch was named chairman.
He has been a director since 1953
and executive vice president since
1958.
A leading figure in the internatio-
nal oil industry for more than a
quarter of a century, Mr. Holman
began his petroleum career as a geo-
logist. He served with a number of
Jersey Standard affiliates and be-
came a director in 1940. He was
elected a vice president in 1942, pre-
sident in 1944 and chairman in 1954.
Mr. Rathbone began his oil career
as a draftsman in 1924 at the Baton
Rouge Refinery. He later became the
refinery's president, then became the
president of Esso Standard Oil Co.
He was elected a director of Jersey
Standard in 1949 and become presi-
dent in 1954.
Mr. Welch joined the company in
1944 after a long period of banking
activity. He was elected a director in
1953, and will be Jersey Standard's
eighth chairman

Gasoline Is Dynamite
Pound for pound, gasoline is eight times as powerful as dynamite
yet most people would think twice about spreading dynamite on the,
kitchen floor in the vicinity of an open flame.
Unfortunately, they are not as cautious with gasoline. Year in and
year out, many lives are needlessly lost because most people are igno-
rant of the tremendous volatility of gasoline only a spark is needed
to ignite spreading gasoline vapors.
For example, the National Fire Protection Association in the United
States reports the hazards involved in using glass jugs or bottles to
store gasoline. Although service stations in the U.S. are prohibited
by law from filling such containers with gasoline, it is a simple task
to transfer it from a larger can to a bottle and many people do with'
results that are most tragic.
Take the case of the father who was at home with his seven
children. The front door was locked to keep them from running in and
out. The father sent two boys out for a gallon jug of gasoline. He had
some cleaning to do in the house. When one of the boys set the jug
on the floor, it happened to break. The father immediately picked up
a gasoline-soaked rug and ran outdoors with it. He intended to get a
mop to clean up the rest of the spilled gasoline. He had hardly started
out the door when the flame of the kerosine hot-water heater ignited
the spreading vapors. Grabbing and pushing, he managed to get five
of the children out of the house. Flames kept him from returning to
get the baby. Double tragedy fell on his shoulders when he later learn-
ed that the oldest child had also been trapped in the living room and
had burned to death. Two precious lives were snuffed out in seconds
because of mis-handled gasoline.
There are two lessons to be learned here. One is to never, never
store gasoline in glass containers. Use a sturdy metal can that has a
tight-fitting screw cap and preferably a pouring spout. Lesson number
two is never use gasoline as a cleaning solvent in a closed-in area.
Vapors can spread to open heater flames almost unnoticed. The spread
of the ignited flames is almost instantaneous one barely has time
to save himself and many fail to do even that. The thoughtless strik-
ing of a match or a spark from a shoe nail can also trigger the com-
bustion.
If you must use gasoline to wash car parts or clean soiled furnish-
ings, do your work in the wide-open spaces where vapors can be dis-
persed by the breezes.

Means of staying competitive."


C. B. Garber
Lago's financial picture was both
good and bad. Mr. Garber explained
this inconsistency in that although
the company's runs increased to
421,500 barrels a day, total revenues
were down and Lago's net earnings
decreased over $1 million. Mr. Garber
reported that 1959 taxes were just
about the same, "but both company
and personal income taxes would be
higher in 1960 due to the action ta-
ken by the Aruba Island Government
in levying a fifteen per cent surtax
on all personal and corporation in-
come taxes."
Speaking of benefits and wages,
Mr Garber stated that these two
items represent a substantial portion
of Lago's manufacturing expenses.
In general terms, for every dollar
spent on productive salaries and
wages, an additional fifty cents is
spent on benefits.
As always Lago took an active part
in community welfare activities. Mr.
Garber stated that Lago acknowledg-
ed its role as a citizen of the Aruba
community by contributing $54,000
to educational and scholarship funds
and $76,000 to local charity and serv-
ice organizations.

F. C. Donovan
An appeal to members of manage-
ment to look to the future was made
by Mr. Donovan. The fourth speaker
of the sessions said that "all of us
have a responsibility to look to the
future and not just to look at day-
to-day operations." It was stated that
a great part of Lago's cost is man-
power and that it must have a num-
ber one priority in any look to the
future. "We cannot afford to have
personnel in excess of our needs in
this very competitive period," Mr.
Donovan said.
Referring to the force reduction
program started ten years ago and
which will continue for some time,
Mr. Donovan assured his listeners
that it "is definitely not being done
on a slide rule." He went on: "Our
operations are too complex and too
inter-related, and year by year there
are too many changes, too many fac-


tors that are unpredictable." He saw
no change in the foreign staff-staff
and regular relationship that has
stood at ten per cent to 90 per cent,
respectively. He also said that the
total complement would be somewhat
above eighty per cent Netherlanders
and somewhat below twenty per cent
Non-Netherlanders.
Mr. Donovan mentioned that the
end intent of eliminating non-essen-
tial personnel and non-essential ac-
tivities was to "improve our effi-
ciency to help increase the job se-
curity of the large number of em-
ployees who will continue to have
jobs."
Mr. Donovan told the group that
Lago operates non-refining services
because they "represent services not
available at all or not available to the
extent required by our employees in
Aruba." In these services, he said,
the customers are our families and
as the number of employees and fa-
milies decline so do the customers.
"As this takes place, we necessarily
examine each service to see whether
a reduction of costs would be pos-
sible. A consolidation might be prac-
tical or the curtailment or, in some
cases, the elimination of services en-
tirely. In each case, a number of
factors have to be taken into ac-
count: the number of customers; the
cost of the service; how essential it
is to the well-being of our employees,
and whether or not comparable serv-
ice is available outside the company."
Mr. Donovan stated that in the in-
stances of the hospital and the com-
missaries, he didn't see Lago discon-
tinuing either business at the pre-
sent.
W. A. Murray
Striving for the ultimate in effi-
ciency was the subject of the final pa-
per presented by Lago's vice-presi-
dent and general manager. Mr. Mur-
ray likened members of manage-
ment to contestants in the business
arena where the spectators as poten-
tial customers are observing Lago's
performance, judging its product
quality and comparing its prices. He
pointed out that members of man-
agement were chiefly responsible for











< kSC-


the maximum use of manpower,
which is the critical factor in attain-
ing the ultimate in efficiency.
As Mr. Murray stated, "Regardless
of how extensive the physical chang-
es in the refinery are, the efficiency
and degrees of success of the com-
pany depend upon its management
members." He continued stating that
the most modern equipment in the
world is only as good as the men
charged with its operation. Mr. Mur-
ray felt that a work force could be
viewed in much the same manner.
"Allowing for differences in personal
willingness and work capacities, the
cohesiveness, efficiency and final ac-
complishments of a work force de-
pend largely upon supervision."
In complimenting members of
management on their accomplish-
ments and the accomplishments of
their men, Mr. Murray urged them
to continue to give all projects their
personal attention. "Without each of
you deriving personal satisfaction in
the knowledge that a job has been
done with the ultimate in efficiency,
the company stands to lose." He told
the members of management that
they were the company's most vital
link to efficient operation. "You and
your men have the equipment. The
manner in which you use them de-
termine product quality, price and
service we are able to give our cus-
tomers."
Mr. Murray stated that executive
management felt that Lago's super-
visors are well qualified. "Our desire
is for you to make this refinery and
the people that operate it as efficient
as possible." Lago's vice-president
stated this in light of the tremen-
dous competition in the petroleum in-
dustry. He told the group that Lago
was "shedding excess poundage and
getting down to fighting weight.
With your support we'll do well."
In concluding his remarks, Mr.
Murray assured Lago members of
management that in no instances
"where safety is involved has it ever
been or will it ever be the intention
to save time or money. In all the
changes we are making, none even
suggests that the intensity of safety
at Lago be lessened."

THE GLAMOROUS setting of the Aruba Caribbean Hotel
greeted members of Lago's management the evening of April
22 when they gathered, almost 700 strong, to enjoy the annual
Management Party. Tables were arranged around the pool.


Management Party's Site


Is Glamorous New Hotel
The luxurious decor and facilities of the new Aruba Caribbean Hotel formed the
setting for Lago's annual Management Party, an April 22 affair that offered good
fellowship, excellent cuisine and entertainment to nearly 700 members of manage-
ment.
The proceedings were officially opened by President O. Mingus who, in a brief mes-
sage, told the management members, "You've heard the results of your excellent
performances this past year in the information sessions we had this week. Now is the
time for good fellowship and relaxation. Let's all have fun."
The remainder of the evening was sparked with plenty of good food the va-
riety included lobster cardinal, roast sirloin of beef, fried chicken, potato cro-
quettes, salad, vegetables, dessert and coffee --- and entertainment direct from the
hotel's Klompen Klub and Bali Bar.
The applause was shared by Ramonita and her combo and Bet E. Martin, head-
line vocalist from the Klompen Klub. Ramonita pleased the crowd with her fiery
Latin renditions and herself while Miss Martin enticed the management mem-
bers with her sparkling vocal style. Handling the master of ceremonies' duties was
Roy Javine of the Industrial Relations Department, who also conducted the raffles
for six handsome transistor radios. Music was provided by the hotel orchestra con-
ducted by Jorge Fasola.
Winner of the grand prize table-model radio was D. V. Croes of Mechanical-Gar-
age. Second prize winner was H. E. Culver of the Mechanical Department. His
prize was a large portable, all-transistor radio. Four portable transistor radios were
won by J. E. Scott, Accounting Department; H. Tielen, TSD-Process; J. C. Thijzen,
Mechanical Department, and R. Nicholson, Medical Department.

na serviclo na otro, E division active
awe na Aruba ta hoben den existen-
cia. Maske Aruba tabata part di c
division di Curacaa di Cruz Roja
antes y durante Guerra Mundial II,
e division a mur pronto despuc3 d
guerra. Anto na October 1957, un
unidad Arubano indcpendiente a
word estableci primeramente door
di esfuerzonan di Dr. P. C. Harting.
Na principio tabatin solamentc
binti hoben entire homber y muher

cibi entrenamento na Hosp:tal San
Pedro den nan tempo liber E in-
troduccion aki na trabas di ver-
pleegster tabata e incentive cu den
algun caso a haci algun damas ho-
hen viaja pa Holanda pa sigui en-
senjanza como verpleegster.
Actualmente, e Division Alubano
di Cruz Roja Holandes ta rcuni na
Eagle Colony. Den future e miem-
bronan ta spera di haya In cartel

traha un otro na Oranjestad. E
plannan aki ta ambicioso y comen-
dable en cuanto nan ta spera di tin
un lugar permanent pa klas y lu-
gar di recreo cual, den caso di
emergencia, por word conve:'ti den
tn hospital.
Ademas di e servicionan ban co-
noci di promer auxilio administrA
door di tur unidadnan di Cruz Roja,
e division di Aruba ta turn parti
tambe den trabao di salbamento.
Recientemente e division a recibi un
boto for di Lago cual e miembronan

intencion di instala tambe un radio
di alta frecuencia abordo pa comu-
nica cu terra y cu avionnan Ac-
tualmente binti hoben ta word cn-

mente door di hopi di e equiponan

ta bisti uniform di khaki pa hom-
her y e muhernan ta bliti shimic

Former Worker

Sends Interesting

Old Photograph
An interesting photograph of
Lago's engineering group as it look-
ed in 1937 was sent in by a former
draftsman, Carl W. Gundel, who now
resides in Nuremburg, Germany.
Mr. Gundel worked at Lago from
Jan. 4, 1935 until June 25, 1938. He
came to Aruba from New Jersey
where he had been employed by the
parent company from 1927 until his
transfer to Lago.
Mr. Gundel was asking specifically
for employment verification in his
letter. This was needed to settle a
claim he had for property damage
suffered during World War II. He
said he had lost all his belongings in
an aerial attack (he didn't say
where or who the attackers were)
and as compensation for his loss, he
would get about 300 marks (Fls. 135)
from the West German government.
Sharp-eyed examiners who were at
Lago in 1937 think they spot the fol-
lowing who are still with the com-
pany: Frank Roding, Jim Rosbor-
ough, Charles Greene, Tim Binnion,
Fred Eaton, Harold Ashlock, Colin
Ward and Norman Shirley.

Rodent Poison
Used in Refinery
Can Be Harmful
The statement in the last issue
of the Aruba Esso News that the
new poison being used by the
company to combat rats is "harm-
less to man, domestic animals,
even birds" is not accurate. The
blue bits of poison contain an
anti-coagulant, and if taken in
large enough doses for a continu-
ed period of time will prove
harmful.

The same Indian civilzations which
figure so much in Aruba's history
also roamed the Virgin Islands. Re-
lics of Arawak and Carib tribes
found on the islands attest to this.
The islands are served by three ma-
jor airlines which have direct serv-
ice to San Juan. In addition, more
than ninety cruise ships call annu-
ally. Visitors spend more than
$17,000,000 a year in island shops
and at the colorful resort areas.
