Bamboo Room of Esso Club Is New

Location for All Retirement Luncheons

Two men were honored at re-
tirement luncheons Tuesday, Sept.
27. The luncheons were nothing
new -they have been held on a
formal basis since 1948 - but the
location of these luncheons was new.
Efigenio Yarzaga ay, a twenty-
eight-year employee of Geneial Ser-
vices, and Charles M Rumnit, a six-
teen-year employee of Mechanical-
carpentei were feted at the Bamboo
Room of the Esso Club. It is at the
Bamboo Room location that all fu-
tlue luncheons will be held
The change in luncheon location is
one change but one probably most
newsworthy to the majority of em-
ployees of a number that were
made last month and will be made
this month The changes and con-
solidations affect the Dining Hall,
Industrial Relations Depaltment and
Equipment Inspection Group. The In-
dustrial Relations Department offices
are now located entirely on the
north side of the Administration
Building. The offices on the south
side vacated by IR will be used by

The retirement luncheon

move to the scenic surroundings of
the Bamboo Room was made in con-
junction with the announcement that
the dining hall would be closed fol-
lowing the turn of the new year. It
was also announced that the private
dining room would be closed after
Nov 24, and no more boarding pri-
vileges will be authorized after the
first of December.
With the closing of the Esso
Dining Hall, Lago will no longer
have buildings specifically function-
ing as dining halls The first dining
hall, which was known as the Esso
Dining Hall, was constructed in 1929
to feed bachelor employees. It was
located opposite the General Office
Building, and was actively used un-
til replaced by the new Esso Dining
Hall It was razed in April, 1956,
after having served many functions
including retirement luncheons and,
on one occasion, an annual staff and
regular employee representatives'
party, which ram had forced from
the golf club to the dining hall.
These were not the only functions.
During the early Thirties the dining
hall served as the unique location

SENATOR ESTES Kefauver is greeted by music of Aruba's popular
Conjunto San Fernando as he disembarks from the Santa Paula during a
recent cruise. He spent the better part of Sept. 22 visiting government
officials, touring the island and lunching with Lago officials.
SENADOR ESTES Kefauver ta worde saludi cu music e popular con-
junto San Fernando ora el ta baha for di Santa Paula durante un reciente
viaje. El a pasa e part mas grand di Sept. 22 bishitando oficialnan di

for dances, church services and also
the post office. The postmaster de-
livered mail every evening following
supper. His position was on top of a
table, and from this perch he called
out the names of those who had re-
ceived mail.
The present dining hall opposite
the Seroe Colorado post office was
opened in February 1956. Its future
is undecided.
Two other dining halls existed
under Lago jurisdiction. Until their
closing in June, 1946, and July,
1955, were the Lago Heights Dining
Hall and the Esso Heights Dining
Hall. The latter was the big one.
It was built in 1942 when the exist-
ing facilities of Lago Heights Dining
Hall could no longer cope with the
increasing number of men occupying
both the Lago and Esso IHeIghts
quarters. Its area measured 24,000
square feet In December, 1942,

Lago Adds New Entry

And Proximity Fire Suits

To Protective Equipment
West of tank 286 in the snow pile area the men constructing sand-
blast facilities for the harbor contractor stopped and gasped. They
couldn't believe what they saw; in fact, they had no idea what they
were looking at. There in the fire training grounds were bulky figures
cloaked in shiny silver garments walking nonchalantly through roar-

ing, whipping tongues of fire. What
goes on over there? One worker
guessed it had something to do with
Lago safety.
His was a good guess and one with
not too much risk of correction since
a large part of Lago training deals
with employee safety. Although the
figures seen by the snow pile wor-
kers have an awesome look, there is
no mystery about their garment's
design or purpose.
The men walked through fire and
pranced on the edge of fire wearing
new entry and proximity fire suits.
The men who wore the suits were
Lago employees, and seen on any
specific day during the past week
and one-half were eight of eighty
men being trained to wear the new
suits. As explained by Process De-
partment Superintendent M. E. Fisk
to each of the ten groups of eight
who underwent the training, the
suits "were bought to increase sa-
fety in case of an emergency.........
they represent an added measure of
safety in coping with fire." Mr. Fisk
went on to say that this training is
unique in that it is hoped it will
never have to be used.
Tuesday, Sept. 27, Alan M. Lari-
mer, sales manager of Fyrepal, of
Newark, Ohio, stepped in front of the
first group of trainees. At his side
were two silver-colored suits, one vis-
ibly heavier than the other.
Mr. Larimer told the first group,
as he did all those that followed,
that these were the suits they were

going to talk about; that these were
the suits they were going to wear
near and in fire. The training course
consisted of discussing the basic
physics of fire and heat and the
composition of the suits. In practice,
the men were brought into contact
with fire to instill judgement and
confidence in the suits.
Specific Purpose
Each suit has a specific purpose
and in the case of the proximity
suit, it does not overlap the func-
tions of the entry suit. The proxi-
mity suit is confined to exactly what
its identification suggests the
proximity of fire. It is not an entry
suit, and with it on a person can
approach a fire only up to a certain
distance. It is a thin lightweight suit
that weighs no more than nine
pounds. The material used in both
the proximity and entry suits is spun
glass cloth. The cloth is light, pliable
and extremely strong. It is perfect
for its chore since it will not absorb
liquids, oils, greases; is not affected
by chemicals, mildew; will not de-
teriorate from age or climatic con-
ditions, and, of course, will not burn.
The suits are made as completely
fireproof as possible by using spun
glass thread to sew the material into
shape. In addition, the material will
not break or wrinkle, and its non-
continuous pattern will not conduct

Gibson-Fageros Exhibition

Glamorizes Park Tennis

The succession of tennis stars
who have appeared on the Lago
Sport Park courts continued along
its high and appealing plane Sept.
24 with the appearance of Althea
Gibson, former Wimbledon and Unit-
ed States women's singles champion,
and Karol Fageros, bouncy blonde
whose clothing is as much of an at-
traction as her tennis. Their play
and also the play of Janm Brokke
and Victor Henriquez, who joined the
two top women professionals in
doubles, won the unanimous appro-
Sval of the many fans packed on both
sides of the court.
The singles matches of the visit-
ing celebrities were won by Miss
SGibson The first she won 6-4 after
overcoming a series of petty distrac-
tions, and the second 9-7 after sub-
Sduing a very aggressive and deter-
mined Miss Fageros.
Once Miss Gibson disposed of the
truculence and annoyance that cha-
racterized much of her early learn-
ing and tournament play, the grace
and power that enabled her to become
the world's leading woman tennis
player in 1957 and 1958 came into
full view. She exhibited her booming
serve that gives her the basis for
her sound, big game. No woman
playing today has the ground strokes
to pass her. In her early tournament
days Miss Gibson often lost because
she was out-generaled. As she
reached tournament maturity she
made few mistakes. Miss Gibson's
command of the court situation, hers

the Esso Heights Dining Hall served
26,000 meals, and catered to an
average of 500 regular boarders. The
dining hall reached its peak de-
mand in 1948 when an average of
830 boarders ate there.
It was at the Esso Heights Dining
Hall that the first retirement lunch-
eon was held for Antonio Geerman
of the Wharves. The date was Sept.
14, 1948, and the luncheon was held
in the dining hall's Lago Heights
cafeteria section. Host at the first
luncheon was Ralph Watson. Other
guests, all since retired, were N.
Bell, K. H. Repath and J. C. Emers.
Retirement luncheons continued to
be held at the Esso Heights Dining
Hall until 1955 when it was decided
to hold all luncheons at the Esso
Dining Hall.

The exterior of both type suits is
coated with aluminium. The surface
as treated is ninety per cent perfect
in reflecting radiant heat. The re-
maining ten per cent becomes con-
ducted heat, and it is because of this
small percentage that fire fighters
are reminded to keep their arms,
legs and body moving at all times
while working in or near fire.
The proximity suit is heat reflec-
tive only. To enter fires should total
involvement arise, the entry suit is
used. It is much heavier because of
the four-layer fibreglass insulation
between the outside and inside spun
glass material. This suit weighs
twenty-six pounds. Included are a
hard hat in the hood and one-way
glass over the face to protect against
infra red rays. The jacket has a
baffle flap that ties around the
waist to protect the wearer against
flames sweeping up and underneath
the jacket. The proximity hood has
plexiglass over the face.
Breathing Apparatus
Both suits have a pack on the
back of the jacket where breathing
apparatus can be fitted. The belt,
harness and air tank weighs thirty-
one pounds and has a thirty-minute
During the morning sessions the
trainees were familiarized with all
the equipment. They were taught
and practiced the sequence of dress.
They learned that the pants go on
first, then the large overshoes over
which the pant legs are pulled to
insure that water (possibly from
fire hoses) runs off and not down
into the boots as it would if the boot
tops were outside. The coat followed,
then the hood, and last the mittens

That was the morning session. In
the afternoon at the fire training
grounds, the trainees practiced in ac-
tual fire. They donned the proximity
suit and discovered how close they
were able to approach a fire without
feeling heat. In the entry suits they
walked through flames and found
proof that it is possible to be totally
involved in fire without feeling heat
They also experimented with mit-
tens by picking up hot objects

Mechanical Departments Primarily

United States Navy during World
War II used asbestos suits This,
too, has its disadvantages. The ma-
terial has to be kept wet, and since
asbestos is absorbent it isn't long
before the fire fighter is carrying a
tremendous amount of weight. Also,
asbestos is a fiberous material that
must be held together by cotton,
which is subject to deterioration.

played the courts of the Park, but never before had women professor
graced these same courts. Althea Gibson and Karol Fageros ended

Hurricane Force

Leaves Wide Path

Of Destruction
On this page are graphic examples
of the destruction wrought on the
islands of St. Maarten and Anguilla
by Hurricane Donna. The St. Maar-
ten pictures were obtained from a
resident, Guy Hodge, by H. Lopes
and D. Mathews who visited the is-
land to estimate the needs of hurri-
cane victims. The Anguilla pictures
were taken by the Rev. J. A. Gumbs,
Methodist Church minister in Aruba.
It is evident by these photographs
that a hurricane is indiscriminate in
its violence. Homes of the very needy
as well as the well-to-do have been
shattered, torn and flattened. A house
of Gol. is not spared by hurricane
winds, or is human life itself.
To understand how a whim of na-
ture can be so total destructive, the
birth, nature and forces in a hurri-
cane must be examined.
The West Indies happens to be one
of the world's major hurricane re-
gions. Hurricanes that effect this
area originate mostly near the west
coast of Africa, but have been
spawned in both the eastern and
western areas of the Caribbean.

Cyclonic Swirls
Hurricanes are born as cyclonic
swirls when opposing winds meet in
a hot air mass over the ocean. North-
ern hemisphere hurricanes occur only
in summer when the intertropical
meeting zone moves north of the
equator allowing the south easterly
and north easterly trade winds to
meet and be twisted to their right
by the earth's rotation. Such a force
does not exist at the equator and
hurricanes cannot develop there
As the opposing trade winds whirl
around each other in the hot moist
air mass over the Atlantic or Carib-
bean, a hurricane is born. A low pres-
sure cell is formed with air pushed
toward its center forcing hot moist
air there to lift. As the air is lifted
it condenses and throws off a tremen-
dous amount of heat. A chain reac-
tion develops. The heated air rises
faster, more air rushes in to replace
it, more condensation follows and
more heat is released. The speed of
the rising, swirling air increases and
increases until the mass spins at
frightening speeds up to 150 miles,
sometimes more.
The tremendous energy released
by this continuous condensation gives
the hurricane its violence violence
that can push a broom straw through
a plank of wood, create giant tidal
waves that swallow entire costal
cities, toss giant ocean vessels about
like bobbing corks in waves as high
as 100 feet or cause catastrophic
floods when it releases its millions
upon millions of tons of moisture.
Though a hurricane moves along its
eratic path rather slowly from ten to
thirty miles an hour its wind speeds
increase until it its fury is spent on
a large land mass. Usually about
400 miles in diameter, hurricanes
leave a wide path of destruction.

for the Park's tennis fans. For Mr.
Brokke and Mr. Henriquez it was
admittably an experience of thrilling
tennis. The two sets played were
divided; the first was won by Miss
Fageros and Mr. Henriquez.
Miss Gibson's and Miss Fageros'
arrival at Princess Beatrix Airport
was greeted by many admiring ten-

stayed at the Aruba Caribbean Hotel
where shortly after their arrival they
were luncheon guests of Mr. Reyes
and Mr. Malmberg.
Before their Aruba stop Miss Gib-
son and Miss Fageros had played in
Curagao. Travelling is nothing new
to the two. In 1955 Miss Gibson and
Miss Fageros travelled together as
the female half of a tennis foursome
that toured Southeast Asia under
State Department auspices. Follow-
