Forty-four Lago Hours ago, or
Aug. 23, 1959, to be exact, Presi-
dent O. Mingus opened a new ven-
ture in Lago communications with
its employees and the community
in which it operates. The project was
the Lago Hour, a one-half hour of
radio time over Aruba's three radio
stations utilizing the language most
closely associated with each of
the radio stations. The shows were
primarily music with a slight pause
in the middle of each for a message
by a member of Lago management.
The Lago Hour's weekly messages
have now come to a close, for the
time being only. The program itself
will continue with all music. Presi-
dent Mingus suspended the pro-
gram's talks with the message that
"With this week's program Lago
suspends the series of weekly talks
by company executives that has been
in progress since last Aug. 23. How-
ever, we will continue to sponsor
another type of broadcasts at the
same times, on the same stations.
"We have talked of many things
in the forty-four programs since we
began ten months ago. In doing so
we have pursued the main objective
that was originally established for
the series: to promote a better under-
standing of Lago, its problems and
its goals, and also the important
world oil business of which Lago is
an important part. We hope there
has been some measure of success in
our efforts to fulfill this objective.
"The subjects of our talks have
covered a wide range of information.
And as Lago and its people are im-
portant to Aruba, so is this informa-
tion on things that are of great con-
cern to Lago and its people.

lations. This was the gist of congratulatory remarks made by Vice 1957.
President W. A. Murray in a special management staff meeting June K. E. Springer, acting process su-

A Life Was Saved
A modest, unassuming scaffold builder saved a man's life the other
day, a man whom he barely knew if he knew him at all. The lifesaver
is P. L. Dabien, a scaffold helper B in Mechanical-Carpenter. The life
he saved was that of Frederick Maxwell, a former dry dock employee
who recently found work with the contractor that is scrapping several
of Lago's obsolete refining units.
Mr. Maxwell was cutting pipe with a burning torch. Mr. Dabien, not
far away, was helping build scaffold. The scene was the old No. 4
Combination Unit. Suddenly the victim's head and trunk were envelop-
ed in flames. His torch had ig-
*l. united a pocket of oil. In panic and
in pain, Mr. Maxwell started
running the worst thing he
S could do in the direction of
another refining unit.
"Fall down and roll on the
ground!" several workers yelled.
Their words fell on deaf ears. But
Mr. Dabien didn't waste time yell-
ing at the burning man whose
clothing, by now, was enveloped in
Flames. Instead, the heroic worker
.re acted. He ran after Mr. Maxwell,
Se a threw him bodily to the earth and
in doing so ripped off the burning
coveralls. Unmindful of painful
burns he received in the process,
P. L. Dabien Mr. Dabien then rolled the injured
man in the earth, the action
smothering out the flames. Rushed to Lago Hospital because of the
severity of his injuries and the proximity of the institution, Mr. Max-
well was treated for severe burns on 25 per cent of his body. He was
kept there until he could be moved to San Pedro Hospital where lihe
began to recover slowly from his critical condition. Time alone will
heal the deep burns, but full recovery is imminent.
What about Mr. Dabien? Why did he act so quickly and with such
great courage knowing full well he would probably be injured in the
process? He doesn't really know. Yet, it is the likes of him of which
heroes are made. Concern for his fellow man, quick to make a decision
and the proper one and quick to take action here are the ingre-
dients of heroism.
There is a simple safety lesson that can benefit us one and all.
Don't panic! If your clothing suddenly catches fire, don't run. You
only feed more oxygen to the flames. If possible, tear off your cloth-
ing. Or fall to the ground and roll so the flame will be smothered. If
you are near a body of water, jump in. Your life may depend on it.

When word of Ins June 23 retiie-

single member of Lago management
had been so honored by so many at
the park. It was the first time that
a mass group demonstration of over
a thousand participants had assem-
bled on the playing field in honor of
one man. And it was the second
time only, in recent years, that
Dutch Marines passed in review for
a civilian resident. The honors were

Chilean Disaster Victims
Aided bq Island Drive
Once again Aruba has answered the call to aid the helpless and
needy victims of a major disaster. This time it was the hundreds
of thousands of Chileans caught in one of the worst disasters of
our time the earthquakes and accompanying floods, tidal waves
and volcanic eruptions that killed at least 5000 hapless victims
and made at least 2.000,000 homeless. Because it was winter in
Chile, these refugees were faced with exposure as well as hunger.
Warm, woolen clothing was desperately needed and the drive in
Aruba became geared to the collection of that necessity as well as
foodstuffs and cash donations. Spearheaded by scout organizations.
Red Cross, YMCA, Lago Community Council and many other
civic-minded organizations, a total of 483 cases of clothing and
packaged foods were collected from island residents and sent to
Chile. In addition, Fls. 12,000 was also raised and forwarded to
the stricken country.
