red for Long Service

Management-Staff Lauds Four

Men at Oct. 12 Ceremonies
The list of Lago's thirty-year employees continues to grow. At a
special management-staff meeting Wednesday, Oct. 12, four more
names were added to the list of long-service employees. Honored were
Simon Maduro of Mechanical-Insulators, Maxwell F. Pantophlet of
Process-Receiving and Shipping-Wharves and Neville T. Matthew and

Placido A. Geerman of General Serv-
Their thirty-year service accom-
plishments were acknowledged by
Vice-President W. A. Murray. The
chairman of the meeting said he felt
sure that thirty years ago the four
honored guests never thought about
completing this much service. "Thir-
ty years is a long time. Much has
changed at Lago, and you have also
experienced many changes, no
doubt." Mr. Murray stated that men
who have worked thirty years for
the same company have undoubtedly
left their mark along the path of
development. It was the opinion of
Mr. Murray and the guests that both
Lago and the four thirty-year men
were favorably disposed toward each
other to have maintained such a long
association. Mr. Murray thanked the
men for their contributions which
have helped Lago progress to a lea-
der in its field.
Acting Mechanical Superintendent
J. R. Proterra introduced Mr. Ma-
duro. He pointed out that Mr. Ma-
duro has completed thirty years of
service without a deductible absence
or a lost-time industrial accident.
Mr. Proterra said that Mr. Maduro is
an extremely pleasant person, one
quick to smile, and a man keenly
interested in the welfare of others.
"He has never had a lost time ac-
cident, and he chose the insulator
craft to coat hot pipes thereby help-
ing to protect others," Mr. Proterra
told the group. Mr. Maduro is an avid
fisherman, so-much-so that he fishes
every afternoon from 4 to 6. He has
two children. His daughter is a
school teacher. Mr. Maduro was ori-
ginally employed Sept. 16, 1930, in
the mason craft. Six years later he
become an insulator helper. His pre-
sent position is insulator B.

Census Reveals
53,199 Persons
Live in Aruba
Statistics of the recently complet-
ed census of Aruba reveal that there
are 53,199 people in Aruba; that
these people live in 10,878 house-
holds; that there are 27,072 females
and 26,127 males; that four-fifths
of these persons are of Netherland
Antillean origin; and that 79.9 per
cent of them are adherents to the
Roman Catholic faith.
These are just a smattering of the
pertinent facts compiled by Dr.
Amos M. Hawley, population and
census expert brought to Aruba by
Lago and the island government to
conduct the highly-specialized cen-
sus. His published report is an ex-
tensive volume which contains 170
pages of explanatory and statistical
material. Dr. Hawley said that
Aruba's first modern census was at
least 99 per cent accurate whicn
equals the performance of the United
States census. Aruba's census show-
ed that among other things the total
population is about 5500 persons less
than it was believed to be.
A complete interpretation of facts
and figures of Aruba's 1960 census
will be published in the Nov. 5 issue
of the Aruba Esso News.

The most publicized thirty-year
man of the group is Mr. Pantophlet.
Process Superintendent M. E. Fisk
told the group why. On Dec. 28,
1951, Mr. Pantophlet saved the life
of a British seaman after the man
had fallen off a tanker and into the
harbor. Mr. Pantophlet jumped in
after him, pulled the seaman ashore,
and then successfully resuscitated
the man to consciousness using the
prone pressure method of artificial
respiration. For his gallant efforts
Mr. Pantophlet was awarded a me-
dal by the National Safety Council.
Mr. Fisk also told the group that in
1941 Mr. Pantophlet assisted in res-
cuing another man from the water.
Mr. Pantophlet is a sub-foreman in
Receiving and Shipping-Wharves.
Most of his Lago career has been
spent on or near the waterfront. He
was originally employed Oct. 29,
1929, as a stevedore. Mr. Fisk also
exposed a mystery that surrounds
Mr. Pantophlet. He is rabid baseball
fan, has the nickname "Yankee," but
is a die-hard Dodger supporter.
General Services
N. M. Shirley, superintendent of
the General Services Department, in-
troduced Mr. Matthew and Mr. Geer-
man. He told the guests and man-
agement-staff members that Mr.
Matthew was formerly a tailor. He
came to Lago, however, as an elec-
trican helper Aug. 11, 1930, learned
the trade and progressed to his pre-
sent position of crafts foreman. Mr.
Shirley said that Mr. Matthew's
services are highly valued in a cri-
tical craft. Speaking later on, Mr.
Matthew credited John T. Mooney
with showing him the business end
of a screwdriver He thanked other
supervisors who, over the years,
taught him the electrical craft.
Mr Shirley cited Mr. Geerman as
the man who takes care of a multi-
tude of small jobs that are impor-

First Experience
Takes Neophytes
Across Ocean
suppressed desire held by most
everyday wvi ker.s An elecilonics
engineer, he suddenly decided he had
had enough and he took his drawing
boaid and dropped it in his boss's
lap and left. He was off aftei a
dream i he ad di eamed many times.
His dream was to sail the Atlan-
tic Ocean Was he a sailor ? No. but i
that didn't diminish his desire to
sail The best he had evei done in
open water was a motolboat trip to
Catalina Island. whlchl is jist oft the
coast of California Even this trip
did not tax his seamanship; he was
aling just for the ride. But, as Mr.
Kibler stated, "I guess I lead one'

too many books about sailing and
dreamed one too many dreams that
I could sail the ocean. So one day I
decided to do it. I gave up my job,
packed a few belongings that I fl-
guied I'd need, locked my apart-
ment and set out for England to
buy a boat My friends gave me a
ieal send-off. They told me I
wouldn't make it, I was crazy, nuts,
insane and other uncomplimentary
expletives modified by stupid. Never-
theless, here I am with my own boat.
The ocean has been crossed and I'm
not too many days from home and
all my skeptical friends."
Mr. Kibler's explanation came
forth in the cabin of his dream boat
as it rested lazily in the lagoon at
Rodgets Beach. Aruba was one of
the Caribbean stops planned by the
intrepid Keith Kibler on his way to

Atlantic Ocean

Former German
Yacht Sailed

From England
the Panama Canal. His Atlantic
crossing completed, he had bandied
about some of the West Indian is-
lands picking up mail, drinking cho-
colate milk shakes, going to motion
picture shows and walking on firm
ground. Once through the canal, he
will beat up the west coast of North
America to Los Angeles
The boat that Mr. Kibler bought
in Southampton, England, is a
thirty-eight-foot yacht of German
origin. In fact, its name has remain-
ed Korsar, German for pirate, which
its first owner gave it after con-
struction in 1934. The British navy
took the craft as a war prize and

used it as a training ship. The ship
was purchased by Mr. Kibler from
the British government. The engi-
neer turned sailor vividly recalls
April 15 in Southampton when he
looked at the sleek hull topped by
750 feet of sail, took a deep breath,
wondered whether or not his friends'
evaluations were correct and headed
out to the Atlantic Ocean.
The test at sea was not as fool-
hardy as it may appear. A first
reaction to the adventure would be
to question the wisdom of the skip-
per. Mr. Kibler, however, explained
that he had read just about every-
thing he could that described ocean
passages. He admits not having any
sailing experience, but counters with
knowledge gleaned again from read-
ing, reading and reading about sail-

Eighty Men Trained

To Wear Proximity

And Entry Fire Suits

Two weeks ago, a number of men -
eighty to be exact did something they
never thought they would ever do, and
something some of them thought was not
possible. The men were all Lago employees,
and their startling feat was to walk
through fire without feeling heat. The
explanation of what appears to be an
astonishing act is pictured on these pages.
And there is nothing astonishing about the
procedure. The proximity and entry fire
suits Lago has added to its long list of pro-
tective clothing are designed to protect fire
fighters against flames should they have
to wear the suits in the event of an emer-

agency. To acquaint the eighty Lago em-
ployees with the fire suits and how to get in
and out of them, and also to allow the men
to wear the suits under fire and heat con-
ditions, the trainees learned how to correct-
ly put on the suits in the mornings and
worked in and around fire in the after-
noons. Once the trainees had walked
through fire, they were able to establish
confidence in themselves and in the fire
suits. Alan M. Larimer, manufacturer's re-
presentative, conducted the classes. He
pointed out the safeguards built into the
suits, ana how emergency fire fighters
could best use them with confidence.

DRESSED IN entry suits the trainees walked through

confidence in the suits. In proximity suits they discov-

Lago Football Championship

ACTION WAS fast Sunday afternoon, Oct. 9 between the
members of the Technical Service and Lago Police Depart-
ment teams in the finals of the inter-department football
play. A large part of the action centered around both goals.
Some of the attempts on the LPD goal were captured by
the Aruba Esso News photographer. The accompanying
pictures show the valiant attempts and saves made by
Claude Peterson, LPD keeper. Unfortunately for LPD and
fortunately for TSD, three shots got past Peterson for
scores; only two scoring shots passed Sonny Hoo, TSD
keeper. The margin of one 3-2 enabled TSD to be-
come Lago's football champion. Irrespective of the final
score, Peterson's movements both on and off the ground
added excitement and thrills to the game. No one can say
he didn't try. At the top left, Sport's Queen Martina Diaz
presents the championship trophy to Edwin Dirksz, captain
of TSD, in recognition of his team's skills and successful
efforts. Miss Diaz and W. G. Spitzer, management repre-
sentative, are pictured center, and below Reymundo Kemp
accepts the runner-up trophy for LPD.

TSD campeon di futbol na Lago. No obstante e anotacion

Wire Oct. 6
Listeners of Radio Victoria news
braodcasts are getting their news
"hot off the wire," to use a tired old
expression. In this particular in-
stance, however, the saying explains
Victoria's news as well as any phrase
Aruba's most powerful station in-
stalled the equipment and began us-
ing Associated Press service Oct. 6
The equipment includes a teletype
machine, a converter and a receiver.
The teletype machine is the in-
strument that actually types out the
incoming messages Except that it
does not have a keyboard, the tele-
type produces typed copy much like
a typewriter. The message which
comes out of New York is picked up
on a receiver. It arrives in the usual
form of international dots and
dashes. The message passes through
a converter, which sends impulses to
the teletype machine. The impulses
set the proper keys in motion to type
out the incoming message.
The news that is sent by Asso-
ciated Press comes in English and
Spanish, alternately. Radio Victoria
is the only station in the Antilles to
have a direct news wire. The equip-
ment is housed in a former Lago
bungalow that is now part of Radio
The copy that rolls out of the top
of the teletype machine is used in
presenting news broadcasts. The
Spanish copy is used by Leo Tromp
in preparing his Papiamento news.

Dominico Wernet

years of age, and had twenty-
two years' service. Survivors in-

Amateur Sailo
(Continued from page .3)
ing He made it known, and most
emphatically, that he was well
schooled in navigation.
This he studied, and he said he
would not have attempted a trip out
of Southampton harbor had he not
felt that he was fully qualified to
chart his way across the ocean. The
Korsar is equipped with many navi-
gational aids, which Mr. Kibler
handles with knowledge and preci-
The trip was not made alone. That
is a sailing experience Mr. Kibler
will leave to others As a novice he
wanted companionship, and should
the need arise a partner in commi-
seration Such a fellow was Ken
Boyc, also of Los Angeles. Keith
and Ken joined forces in England
where Mr. Boyc was a representa-
tive for a United States' aircraft
manufacturer. Mr. Boyc was of like
nature, and he too harbored a sup-
pressed desire. Although he didn't
have a drawing board he did have a
sales manual that he dropped in his
boss's lap, said goodbye to England
and the aircraft industry and board-
ed the Korsar. Ken fitted the plan
very neatly; he didn't have any
sailing experience, either.
There were and are other crew
members. The reference sounds pe-
culiar, but crew members have come
and gone at various points along the
Korsar's itinerary. Ken and Keith
are the only permanent members.
Others have sailed with them, and
at different islands along the way
severed association either because of
sea sickness or destination reached.
Aboard the Korsar when it touched
Aruba was a crew of four. The ad-
dition of two had been made in Mar-
tinique when John Nathan and Miss
Margot Grass climbed aboard. Miss
Grass, an X-ray technician orgi-

ing as well as adding a spot of
glamor wholly unexpected on such a
venture Mr. Nathan is a professio-
nal diver who recently completed un-
derwater demolition work for the
Maitinique government He is bound
for his home in San Francisco.
. Mr. Kibler claimed that the cross-
ing was made without major incm-
dent. There were moments, he con-
fessed, that worried him. He cited
the specific incident of trying to go
from Lisbon to Tangier. The Korsar
got caught in a mistral, which is a
violent, dry and cold northerly wind
at the entrance to the Mediterranean
Sea. They couldn't fight the wind
and high seas and ended up along the
coast of Morrocco. Their next stop
was the Canary Islands, and then
the crossing
The Korsar arrived at Aruba Oct.
5. The crew stayed here a few days
and then left for Los Angeles Once
in LA, Mr Kibler and Mr. Boyc will
have to endeavor to find another
drawing board and sales manual. It
will be back to work and dreams of
more adventures Mr Kibler does
not plan to sell the Korsar He's go-
ing to keep it in readmess should the
Pacific dream become compelling
The next time he will have expe-
rience and undoubtedly will be the
envy of his friends rather than the
butt of derisive howls

It's Triplets!
Those words or others very di-
milar greeted Henry J. E. Held of
the Employee Medical Center
Sept. 29. For that was the date
Mrs Held presented Mr. Held
with triplets, two sons and one
daughter named Ernie Michael,
Eric Glenn and Sandra Elizabeth
The triplets aie now at home
and are the darlings of four other
Held children, three boys aged
eight, six and five, and a three
and one-half-year-old girl
The Held triplets are the fifth
set of triplets born at Lago Hos-
pital, according to statistics
gleaned from past issues of the
Aruba Esso News. Prior to the
1941 beginning of the Esso News
the first set was born. The second
was born in 1944 to Mr. and Mrs
Herman Stephens of the Marine
Department, the third to Mr. and
Mrs. James Hanley of Mechani-
cal-Mason and the fourth in 1958
to Mr. and Mrs. Theodoor Kool-
man of Mechanical-Metal Trades.
Of the recorded sets of triplets,
twice as many girls as boys have
been horn.
