Government Plan
To Aid Residents
The Netherlands Antilles gov-
ernment has announced that the
Federal Ordinance on General Old
Age Insurance is scheduled to go
into effect Sept. 1, 1960. The ordi-
nance provides pensions for eligible
individuals upon their attaining sixty-
five years of age. In general, persons
eligible to receive this pension will
include residents of the Netherlands
Antilles and others who have resided
in the Netherlands Antilles for at
least six years after their fifty-ninth
The monthly pension paid to mar-
ried couples will be Fls. 95. Single
persons will receive Fls. 55 a month.
To provide funds for the old age
pension plan, a tax will be levied on
employed persons and others having
incomes of at least Fls. 900 a year.
Employers are required to pay a
major portion of this tax. As an
employer, Lago will pay an amount
equal to 2 per cent of each em-
ployee's earnings up to the maximum
taxable income of Fls. 500 a month.
Each employee, in turn, will be re-
quired to pay 11 per cent of his
monthly earnings up to the maxi-
mum. In other words, no premium
will be levied on earnings in excess
of Fls. 500 a month or FIs. 6000 a

Payroll Deduction
At Lago, the employee's portion
of the premium, 1/ per cent, will be
paid by payroll deduction. However,
as agreed with the LEC during re-
cent contract negotiations, employ-
ees who wish to have payments made
through withdrawals from their
Thrift Plan accounts may do so by
signing a form available at the Main
As a result of paying the 2 per
cent tax previously mentioned, an
employer who has a retirement plan
may take credit for a portion of the
government pension in arriving at
the total annuity to be paid a retired
employee from the employer's retire-
Sment plan. Therefore, retirement in-
comes paid or to be paid by Lago
will be adjusted proportionately at
such time as a recipient becomes
eligible for a government old age
pension. No adjustment will be made
for those who are not eligible for
the government pension.

Making Adjustment
In determining the amount of ad-
justment to be made in the retire-
ment income of an annuitant, only
that portion of the government pen-
sion represented by the company's 2
per cent tax payment will be con-
sidered. A Lago annuitant who is a
resident of the Netherlands Antilles
may qualify for a government pen-
sion at age sixty-five. He would then
receive pension payments from two
sources, Lago and the government.
The government pension would be
paid for by the 2 per cent tax from
Lago and the 1, per cent tax from
employees. Lago would take credit
for its portion of the government
pension and reduce the Annuity Plan
payments accordingly. However,
since no credit would be taken for
that part of the government pension
bought by the employees' 1% per
cent, the net effect in such a case
would be a higher total income for
the annuitant. In no case will a
Lago annuitant receive less than the
total pension accrued to his credit
under the Lago Thrift and Annuity

Nobody Needs to Drown

Anyone Can Use This Technique
To Cope Confidently with Water
Editor's Note: This article first appeared in Every Woman's Family Circle
last June and was also published in condensed form in the July, 1960,
issue of the Reader's Digest. Numerous drownings occur in Aruban waters
each year fishermen go out and literally disappear; the fierce undertow
at North Shore beaches also claims its share of victims. Studies indicate
that the principal causes of drownings are panic and exhaustion. In panic.
the following reprint of the article points out, non-swimmers and even
some swimmers struggle to hold their heads above water, which NO ONE
can do for long. Soon exhausted, they go down.
During the last twenty-five years a technique has been developed
which can prevent death in the water. Aimed at freeing the potential
drowning victim from hysteria and energy-draining tension, it is called
Drownproofing. Worked out by Fred R. Lanoue, professor of physical
education and head swimming coach at Georgia Institute of Techno-
logy, it consists of two simple "strokes": the Stay-Afloat Stroke and
the Travel Stroke. Using these, Lanoue has taught 20,000 people of
all ages swimmers and non-swimmers how to stay afloat in an
emergency for hours, or how to travel at least a mile without fatigue.
The theory behind Drownproofing is this: muscle and bone sink;
fat and air float. The proportions of each in the human body are such
that, with lungs fully inflated, ninety-eight out of one hundred men
and practically all women will float against the surface of the water
if they don't try to hold their heads up.
In Drownproofing, then, you hang relaxed in a near-vertical position
in the water, letting your head dangle, face down. Every few seconds
you raise your head for a change of air.
Here, in the diagrams that follow, are the two strokes one to
stay afloat, one to get to shore without tiring:

ALTHOUGH CINEMACTRESS Elizabeth Taylor was in Aruba recently on
a Grace Line cruise, few film fans glimpsed the star or husband Eddie
Fisher. She briefly appeared in the Aruba Caribbean's Bali Bar where she
is shown chatting with Eugene Berry, hotel manager.
MASKE ACTRIZ di cine Elizabeth Taylor tabata na Aruba Juli 7 ariba

Hot Tap Machine Is

Mechanical-Pipe men use an in-
genious technique called "hot tap-
ping" when faced with the task of
hooking one product line to another
without having to take the line out
of service. The method is a real time
saver for the company yet calls for
precision handling and careful super-
vision. It is simple in practice al-
though complicated machinery is in-
volved. Hot tapping is "old hat" to
the pipefitters who work with it but
to the layman it can be compared to
putting an extra faucet on a water
line without turning the pressure
Before Lago purchased its first hot
tap equipment six years ago, the job
of hooking one product line to
another meant taking the old line
out of service, washing it gas-free

AN ELBOW is removed, top photo, by T. Geerman, helper A, and the
stub, center, is inspected for leakage under pressure. W. Bailey,
tradesman A, directs a valve as it is lowered onto a stub.

and giving it a thorough inspection
so that cutting torches could be
safely used. A much-needed product
line could be out of service for as
much as three days. A hot tap mach-
ine does the job of actually cutting
a tap in a pipe in less than thirty
minutes while product flows freely
under pressure through the line.
Lago has three of the relatively
expensive machines their $7000
cost each is negligible when compar-
ed to the savings they effect with
one designed to cut one-quarter to
two-inch taps and the other two for
making two-inch to twelve-inch cuts.
First a stub is welded onto the
pipe at a previously selected spot. A
cut-off valve is bolted to the stub
and the hot tap machine is lowered
onto this valve and secured. The

"ho' tapping" ora nan mester enfrenta e tarea di mara un linja di

counting the revolutions so that the

MAJOR ATTRACTION at the fair was the merry-go-
round, completely renovated by YMCA volunteers and Lago
personnel. A real popular fellow, center, was H. Figuerra,
merry-go-round operator. A tricycle, above, was won by U.
Gilhuis and surprised daughter.
ATRACCION PRINCIPAL na e feria tabata e caballito.
Un tercio berdaderamente popular, centro, tabata H. Fi-
guerra, operator di e caballito. Un tricycleta, ariba, a worde
door di U. Gilhuis y su yiu sorpres.

Almost 11,000 youngsters and oldsters attended the YMCA Fair in
San Nicolas during the four weekends it was open last month. Total
receipts from the merry-go-round, refreshments and games amounted
to Fls. 17,779.45. After expenses are paid the YMCA hopes to net
Fls. 10,000 to strengthen this year's budget and to extend its facilities
to other parts of the island.
Volunteer fair workers totaled 146 persons. They ran the various
games pinball, basketball, Giant Wheel, Map of Aruba, string pull,
archery and many others made piles of hamburgers and croquettes
and kept the merry-go-round whirling. The fair ran on Friday, Satur-
day and Sunday each weekend. Children were admitted free on Sunday
between 4 and 6 p.m. YMCA officials plan to hold the fair again next
year to assist their annual fund drive.

A VARIETY of games of skill and chance amused

by the Don Bosco and La Salle clubs. The fair,
which ran four weekends, netted about Fls. 10,000.

Lago Men At Work ....

Sandblasters of Mechanical -Yard

Bring up the topic of "sand" with a tourist and a snow-white beach
comes to mind. Or, mention the subject to a contractor and he en-
visions concrete mixers and slab foundations. The glassblower is on
intimate terms with this by-product of nature he blows and spins
his intricate creations from molten sand. Then there are the wee ones.
Is there a child who has not built kingdoms in the privacy of his sand-
pile towering sand castles surrounded by deep moats quickly rise
only to be as quickly destroyed by a childish whim.
Sand, traditionally used for building, can as easily be used in mild
forms of destruction. A major use for sand in the latter category is
the sandblasting technique. Sandblasting has been a highly important
Mechanical Department operation at Lago for more than thirty years.
In such a high corrosion area as Lago is located in, sandblasting is

many other materials subject to cor-

The bulk of Lago's sandblasting
operations is carried on in the snow-

from gears, bundles, plates and
beams as an integral part of Lago's
never-ending maintenance program.
The small force consists of six
sandblasters and a work leader. Two
of the six have been on the job for
thirty years each. P. Geerman and
P. Zarraga have been on the nozzles
since 1930. The others have been in
the craft for many years. For
example, L. Brown has been at it
for fifteen years out of his twenty-
Sthree years' service. "Sandblasting's
not so bad," he voiced. "You work
out in the open air most of the time
and the pressure helps hold the nozz-
le up." He was referring to the
otherwise heavy hose and nozzle
which are appreciably lightened by
the sand-air mixture under eighty
pounds pressure.
Three different materials are used
in sandblasting. Silica sand is best
for cleaning brass and other soft
metals. Granite dust, which comes
from the refinery's rock crusher, is
best for hard metals such as steel.
Turbine spindles must be cleaned
with cement under pressure. Sand
would deteriorate the light metal

make it safe they utilize special
signals and wear protective air
masks, hoods, gloves and earplugs.
The latter device minimizes the ear-
splitting sound -- somewhat like a
jet airplane's exhaust that is
common to sandblasting. Fresh,
sand-free air, is pumped to the wor-
ker's face mask from a distant
source. Two men usually don't blast
in close proximity as a misplaced
blast could cause severe friction
burns. Not all materials that come
into the sandblast area need blasting.
Some bundles and pumps are clean-
ed with steam. Mechanical-Yard men
in cleanout work also learn the art
of sandblasting and are frequently

trained in the use of new sandblast-
ing equipment in the lower yard.
These shift workers do much of the
sandblasting in the units.

Scholarships Allotted Half

Of Teagle Fund Allocations
A fifteen-year report from The Teagle Foundation, Incorporated, re-
veals that during its first fifteen years of operation the foundation
has allocated nearly 50 per cent of monies spent in the form of
scholarship grants.
Out of a total $2,414,341.41 spent, $1,094,815.55 was allocated for

scholarships or 45.35 per cent of the
total. Needy individuals received a
total of $317,953.64 from the foun-
dation, $469,929.32 went to medical
research, $301,000.00 was allocated
for religious education, $103,042.90
went for administrative expenses and
$127,600.00 was used for miscellane-
ous assistance.
Endowed by Walter C. Teagle, re-
tired president and chairman of the
board of Standard Oil Company
(N.J.), The Teagle Foundation, In-
corporated, was founded in 1944 to
aid needy and deserving families
among his company's employees and
to aid young men and women in ob-
taimng a college education. There
were also some areas of medical re-
search in which he was particularly
interested. These were the primary
targets of the foundation, to which
were added recruitment and training
for the ministry, religious education,
encouragement of bedside nursing
and other worthwhile endeavors.
The foundation maintains scholar-
ships at Cornell University, Massa-
chusetts Institute of Technology and
the Harvard University Graduate
School of Business. Each of these in-

stitutions chooses the recipients of
the scholarship awards from among
those recommended by the founda-
tion and determines the amount of
the individual stipend, within the
limits of the foundation's annual ap-
propriation for scholarships.
Eligible for scholarship considera-
tion are employees of Standard Oil
Company (N.J.) and sons or daugh-
ters of employees or annuitants.
Teagle scholarships were awarded
to four residents of Aruba last year.
All enrolled in Cornell University,
they are Susan D. Eaton, arts and
sciences; Colin D. Batson, formerly
of the Mechanical Department, eco-
nomics; James D. Massey. graduate
school of business, and Margaret M.
Thompson, home economics. A
scholarship was awarded this year
to Lincoln V. Lewis of Process-Light
Oils Finishing, who plans to enter
Cornell this September. He will ma-
jor in economics.
In 1958 and 1957, two youths re-
ceived the scholarships and in 1956,
six youths from Aruba entered Cor-
nell and Massachusetts Institute of
Technology with Teagle scholarships.
