Thirty-Year Certificates Presented

To Four by Vice-President W. A. Murray

Lago's thirty-year service certi-
ficates and emblems are, in effect.
priceless. One can't just go out and
buy them they have no guilder
or dollar value instead, they re-
present something that no one can
get without working for them. It
takes thirty years of accumulative
Lago service to join the honor roll
of these long-service employees.
This was the gist of Vice President
W. A. Murray's message to four men
about to join thirty-year-service em-
ployees' ranks. Honored by manage-
ment staff members and supervisors
at the special thirty-year service
award meeting Dec. 7 were Miguel
A. Boekhoudt, pipefitter helper A in
Mechanical-Pipe; Austis H. Gibbs,
electrician A in Mechanical-Electri-
cal; Humphrey Courtney, Esso Club
desk clerk in the General Services
Department, and Gabriel Willems,
corporal B-dockman in Process-Rec-
eiving & Shipping-Wharves.
Prior to presenting each of the
four with the coveted service certi-
ficates and emblems, Mr. Murray had
department heads and acting de-
partment heads outline each reci-
pient's job history, adding a personal
touch when possible.
G. L. MacNutt, superintendent of
the Mechanical Department, talked
about Mr. Boekhoudt and Mr. Gibbs.
He said that Mr. Boekhoudt, who
joined Lago Oct. 6, 1930, as a Mech-
anical-Yard employee, was employed
by Shell in Curaqao prior to starting
his Lago career. In 1936 he became a
pipefitter helper B in the pipe craft
and in 1942 he was promoted to pipe-
fitter helper A, his present position.
Mr. MacNutt pointed out Mr. Boek-
houdt's excellent attendance record
and added he occupies his spare time
raising sheep and corn on his small

"Pop" Gibbs
Mr. Gibbs, said Mr. MacNutt, is
generally known as "Pop." He added
that this was very confusing when
both Pop Wilson and Pop Gibbs were
employed in the telephone exchange.
Mr. Gibbs joined the company Nov.
19, 1930, as a watchman and four
years later transferred to his present
department as a laborer first class.
After a series of promotions he was
named an electrician B in 1938 and
an electrician A in 1940. "Mr. Gibbs
has been employed in the telephone
exchange during most of his Lago
years," Mr. MacNutt added. "With
the important role in refinery opera-
tions that the telephone plays, we

depend on having a reliable system.
Mr. Gibbs, along with his associates,
is responsible for such satisfactory
performance." When it came his turn
to speak, Mr. Gibbs mentioned that
during the course of his duties he
has been in and under every bunga-
low in the Seroe Colorado community
installing and taking out telephones.
P. A. Hunt, speaking for N. M.
Shirley, General Services Department
superintendent, then on vacation, re-
vealed the background of Mr Court-
ney. He said that Mr. Courtney had
been a club employee throughout his
entire thirty years of employment -
all of it on the night shift. "His
courtesy, tact and diplomacy are well
known by all Esso Club members,
past and present," Mr. Hunt said
Starting at Lago Nov. 15, 1930, as a
waiter in the old Pan-Am Club, Mr
Courtney later was promoted to head
waiter and then head bar man. He
was named a desk clerk in 1954. "He
has seen many changes and has made
many friends. He still receives
Christmas cards from several old
friends every year. He has seen a lot
of changes over the years in club
doings and operations," Mr. Hunt
added. A humorous quip was inter-
jected when Mr. Hunt revealed Mr.

Courtney's nutmeg enterprise in Gre-
nada. "He's the nutmeg king of
Aruba with an eye to the future but
to most of us who know him well,
he's Mr. Esso Club," Mr. Hunt said.
To this Mr. Courtney added that his
thanks went to all present for mak-
ing his thirty-year service at Lago
so pleasant.
The career of Mr. Willems was
outlined by M E. Fisk, Process De-
partment superintendent. "Like many
old timers here at Lago, Mr. Willems
had an interesting career prior to
joining the company in November,
1929. He worked in the cane fields in
Cuba and was also employed in the,
phosphate mines in Curacao. He is
also one of the few men around to-
day who helped clear the site for the
original Lago refining units," Mr
Fisk said He went on to say that
Mr. Willems started as a Mechanical-
Storehouse laborer and in 1941 be-
came a yard craft laborer D. He
transferred to the Process Depart-
ment that same year as a pressure
stills cleanout man. In 1943 he be-
c.me a laborer C in his present de-
partment and, through a series of
promotions, was advanced to corpo-
ral B in April, 1951. He became a
corporal B-dockman in 1956.

Bunker Station

To Be Dedicated

Thursday, Dec. 22
Lago's new bunker station in
Oranjestad will be officially opened
for business the afternoon of Dec. 22
when Lago President O. Mingus, Lt.
Gov. F. J. C Beaujon and other
leading island dignitaries gather to
dedicate the new installation.
The new terminal will act as an
Esso 'Servicenter" for ships that call
at Oranjestad Harbor. It primarily
consists of three storage tanks and
terminal station located directly
across the street from the Public
Works Building and fueling sta-
tions at the four docks in the Oranje-
stad Harbor complex.
To make the installation aestheti-
cally acceptable to Aruba's tourist
trade, the terminal station building
itself is designed along modern ar-
chitectural lines while lines and
valves on the docks are hidden from
sight in covered trenches. Surround-
ing the three storage tanks is attrac-
tive grill work fencing framed oy
white cement posts
Any of three fuels gas oil, diesel
fuel and fuel oil or blends of the
three may be furnished as bunkers to
each of the foul valve pits at dock-
side. Fuel oil is stored in a 23,000-
barlel tank, diesel fuel is stored in a
20,300-baitel tank and gas oil is
stored in a smaller 6460-barrel tank
All three tanks were re-located from
their original sites in the Lago con-
cession. In addition to fuel lines, air
lines and water lines run to the dock-
side pits. An integral part of the
bunkering facilities are the fresh
water lines installed by the govern-
ment as well as the dockside ship-
shore telephone systems
First ship scheduled to receive fuel
after the dedication ceremonies is a
Grace Line vessel.

change durante mayor parti di su

bisa. "Cu e papel important den
operacionnan di refineria cu telefoon

Amnda el ta recibi carchi di Pascu
for di varos amigonan bleuw tur

cambionan den actividad y operacion-
nan di e club, Sr. Hunt a bisa. Un
nota humoristico a worde treci aden
ora Sr Hunt a revela e empresa di
nootmuskaat cu Sr. Courtney tin na

kaat aki na Aruba cu un vista ariba
future, pero pa mayoria di nos cu

vicio na Lago asina agradable.
E carera di Sr. Willems a worde

tendente di Process Department.
"Mescos cu hopi veteran aki na
Lago, Sr. Willems tabatin un carera
interesante promer cu el a cuminza

1929. El a traha den cunucunan di
canja na Cuba y tambe na mina di
fosfaat na Curaaao. Tambe el ta un
di e poconan cu a yuda haci e lugar
limpi pa e plantanan original di
Lago," Sr. Fisk a bisa. El a bisa cu
Sr. Willems a cuminza como laborer

tual y, pa medio di un series di pro-
mocionnan, a avanza pa corporal B

dockman na 1956.

a laga Aruba pa bai Abadan pa traha
e modelonan identico. Stranjo pa me-
todonan di Lago, e plantanan aki no

anja, pero ainda nan ta keda ey. Sr.
Griffm a bisa cu na Abadan planta-
nan bieuw nunca ta worde kibrA y
como resultado tin fila di plantanan
cu nan dia a pasa parA por nada.
Acentuando algun punto interes-
ante di Employee Communication's
Bulletin di Abadan, e publication di
cuatro pagina ta habri cu e informa-
clon cu Abadan a refina 342,000 bar-
ril pa dia na Juni. Mas leuw ta apa-
rece un nota chikito cu ta spierta
trahadornan pa come mas salo den
nan cuminda y awa. E articulo ta
bisa con hopi awa di hende su curpa
ta bai perdi a consecuencia di clima
calor y haimedo. Information manera
esaki ta word dund cu bon motibo.
Temperaturanan halto pa Juli 23 y
24, e fechanan cubri pa e publication
cu ta sali tres vez pa siman, tabata
107 grado y 115 grado den sombra.
Correcto, amigo, den sombra. Ah!, en
berdad no ta manera e bientonan re-
frescanto cu ta duna Aruba un tem-
peratura di 83 grado promedio.
Y por si acaso bo tin amigo na
Abadan y bo ta pensa kiko nan por
tabata haci Diamars anochi, Juli 26,

a rubber sink mat, or anything that
has a kind of bumpy or uneven sur-
face will work well for texture rub-
bings. Then punch holes, one on each
end of the strips of paper. Place one
end of the strip over the other to
form an elongated loop matching the
holes on each end. Then slip the
looped strips of paper on to a stick.
Start with the larger strips first and
finish up with the smaller ones.
A mantel or table decoration can
be made from a sheet of paper ap-
proximately twelve inches by twenty-
four inches in size. First draw a
semi-circle on the paper, with a
twelve-inch radius. Cut it out. Then
fold the semi-circle in half, forming a
quarter of a pie shape. Fold in half
two or three more times. Now open
the folds, and refold into accordian
pleats, along the creases you just
made. Place the paper on a flat sur-
face and decorate by coloring alter-
nate pleats with crayons. You can
also make slits in the uncolored
pleats, to which you can later attach
small ornaments. Tape the two
straight edges together to form a
cone-shaped tree.

In the ninth century, the good
Saint Winifred traveled about north-
ern Germany preaching Christia-
nity. One Christmas Eve, he came
upon a group of people gathered
around a huge oak tree to offer hu-
man sacrifice to their pagan gods.
According to legend, Saint Winifred
hewed down the great oak, and as it
fell, a tall young fir appeared in its
place. The appearance of the tree
was hailed far and wide as a miracle,
and from that day on, it became the
custom for German families to gather
About a tall evergreen on Christmas
Some historians trace the origin of
lighting the Christmas tree to Martin
; Luther, who lived from 1483 to 1546.
It is said he was strolling through
the countryside one Christmas Eve,
awed by the beauty of the evergreen
forest under the starry sky. When
he came home, he tried to re-create
Sthe scene for his family by attaching
some lighted candles to a small ever-
These customs spread to the Scan-
danavian countries in the early nine-
teenth century, and from there to
France and England. Records show
that 35,000 Christmas trees were
sold in Paris in 1890!
Yet the evergreen was symbolic in
religious rites even before the
birth of Christ. Ancient Egyptians,
when they observed the winter sols-
tice, brought green date palms into
their homes, as a symbol of "life
triumphant over death." When the
Romans celebrated the feast of Sat-
urn, a part of the ceremony was the
raising of an evergreen bough. And
the early Scandanavians also did
homage to the fir tree. To these
9 k peoples, the evergreen tall and lush
when everything around it had suc-
cumbed to winter's frost was a
wondrous thing that enjoyed special
favor from the gods.
Hessian soldiers brought the first
Christmas tree to America. But the
custom of lighting trees in public
places originated in the United
States. Today, the United States has
a national Christmas tree, designated
by the Department of the Interior.
It is 267 feet high and is located in
General Grant National Park near
Fresno, California
This season homes throughout most
of the free world will be glowing
with the warm lights of the Christ-
mas tree. The trees' significance to-
day comes to us as a religious heri-
tage. In accordance with ancient
Christian tradition, a Christmas tree
should bear nothing but white cand-
les and red roses. Later times reve-

rently added silver thread. The five-
pointed star of Bethlehem crowns
the majestic Christmas tree. Chris-
tian tradition would also have us
hanging silver threads from the star
to remind us of the flow of Divine
Light which came to earth with the
Nativity. The white candles burn up-
wards to symbolize the human res-
ponse to Divine Grace. Tradition also
tells us that there should be thirty-
three white candles.
But modern man has deviated from
tradition. While he still holds its re-
ligious significance as zealously as
always, the tree's decorations have
taken different shapes and designs.
For many years tufts of cotton and
popcorn were used to simulate snow.
Apples and strings of cranberries
were used to provide color. Then
came the glass ornaments, paper fig-
ures, and intricately designed colored
balls and bulbs and many sizes and
There isn't good reason or tradition
behind some of the fanciful orna-
ments on trees today, other than
representing the gaiety, color and
joy that is the Christmas season.
The traditional Christmas decora-
tions, however, are steeped in reason
and legend.
Why did the original Christian de-
corations on Christmas trees include

The Christmas story is told many ways.
One of the most picturesque forms is the
beautiful stained glass windows in the
famed French Cathedral of Notre Dame at
Chartres. Among the most beautiful in the
world, the windows date as far back as the
Thirteenth Century. The first window de-
picts the shepherds watching their flocks
on a hillside near Bethlehem. They are
startled by the appearance of angels desc-
ending from top of window. The angels tell
the shepherds that a child is born. The

second window is the nativity. A wide-eyea
Mary is contrasted with a weary, tired
Joseph. The Christ Child in swaddling
clothes lies between the two. The Child is
warmed by the breath of farm animals. The
three Wise Men form the third window.
They are shown following the bright star of
Bethlehem carrying with them gifts of
frankinsense and myrrh. They travel to pay
homage to a newborn king. The final win-
dow beautifully portrays the Madonna and
Child. These windows are all brilliant.

Cue with Many

Sand Legends

In millions of homes throughout the Western world, Christmas is a
time to hang a curious-looking sprig of green with white berries in the
living room. It's mistletoe, nature's "license" for kissing any pretty
girl who stands beneath it. But mistletoe means different things to

r many people.
e To the superstitious, it's an all-
healing plant, it wards off poisons,
and keeps animals healthy. In sor-
cery rites, it's an antidote for apo-
r plexy, palsy and epilepsy. Some
fel icid a d people think it comes from the sun;
others think mistletoe is a gift of
Jupiter. The latter also believe it
"helps old ulcers and the corrupt
i e humors." There are elders who ex-
S tppect mistletoe to soothe what ailds
them. Actually, modern researchers
find that its active principle (guip-
t a sone) does indeed relieve hyperten-
sion which often is an old-age ail-
ment. It's valuable, too, in treating
QSeat nervous disorders!
s a What is this strange plant that's
been regarded as a bestower of life
and fertility, a protector against poi-
b toso pc ti sons, a potent all-healing medicine?
bosoa rti The plant is steeped in legend, much
of it predates the birth of Jesus
Christ. The most interesting medie-

val legend, however, pertains to
Christ. The cross on which Jesus died
on Calvary was made by Roman
soldiers from the wood of the mist-
letoe tree, and from then onward,
mistletoe has been forbidden to grow
upon the ground.
This is only one of the many tales
that enshroud mistletoe. Truth is
lent to the Calvary legend by the
parasitic growth of the mistletoe. A
member of the honey suckle family,
it grows in a very peculiar way. It
sinks its roots into the branches of
other trees and saps them for the
nourishment it needs. When the host
tree dies, the mistletoe dies with it.
The Druids were among the first
to observe the peculiar growing ha-
bits of the mistletoe. These men were
the priests and seers of a pagan re-
ligion that thrived in Gaul and the

Mistletoe Ta Duna Permiso

Pa Sunchi Mucha Muher
Den miliones di cas den henter mundo occidental, Pascu ta un tem-
porada pa colga un ramita stranjo di mata berde cu beishi blanco den
cas. Su number ta mistletoe, y ta represent "dispensa" di naturaleza
pa sunchi cualkier much muher cu ta par& bao di dje. Pero mistletoe
ta nifica diferente cos pa hopi hende.

Pa esnan supersticioso, e ta un
mata cu ta cura tur maleza, e ta
protega contra veneno, y ta tene bes-
tianan salud. Den ritonan di sortile-
gio e ta un contra pa apoplexy, pa-
ralysis y epilepsy. Algun hende ta
kere cu e ta bini for di solo; otro ta
pensa cu mistletoe ta un regal di
Jupiter. E ultimonan aki ta kere
tambe cu e "ta yuda ulcero bieuw y
humornan malo." Tin hende bieuw cu
ta spera mistletoe calma tur loke ta
falta nan. En efecto, experimentador-
nan modern ta descubri cu su prin-
cipio active (guipsone) en berdad ta
alivia hypertension cu ta hopi vez un
maleza di hende bieuw. E ta valioso
tambe den tratamento di estorbonan
Ta kiko ta e mata stranjo aki cu
sa worde consider como un trecedor
di bida y fertilidad, un protector
contra veneno, un medicine potent
cu ta cura tur cos? E mata ta dera
bao di leyenda, hopi di cual ta bini
promer cu nacemento di Jesus Cristo.
E leyenda mas interesante di siglo-
nan medio, sinembargo, tin relacion
cu Cristo. E cruz na cual Jesus a
muri ariba Calvario tabata traha
door di soldanan Romano for di palo
di un mistletoe, y for di ey p'adilanti,
mistletoe a keda prohibi pa crece
ariba terra.
Esaki ta solamente un di e hopi
cuentonan cu ta rondona mistletoe.
E leyenda di Calvario ta haya algun
aparencia di berdad como cu mist-
letoe ta crece come parasite. E ta
crece na un manera masha peculiar.
E ta sink su raiz den ramanan di
otro matanan y asina ta chupa ali-
mento for di nan. Ora e mata muri,
e mistletoe tambe ta muri hunto
cu ne.
E Druidonan tabata entire di pro-
mer pa observa e modo stranjo cu
mistletoe ta crece. o hombernan aki
tabata e sacerdote y profetanan di
un religion pagano cu tabata florece
na Francia y Islanan Ingles den dia-
nan pre-Romano. Nan tabata atribui
calidadnan religioso y magico na e
mata. E Druidonan supersticioso
specialmente tabata busca mistletoe
cu ta biba ariba mata di eik, make
generalmente mistletoe tabata biba
cu mas frecuencia ariba otro clase di
palo. Segun nan teorianan pagano di
creencia, lo socede hopi bondad si un
mistletoe worde haya ariba un eik y
st sacrificionan worde haci ariba di
seis anochi di luna.
Bisti na blanco, e sacerdote cu ta
haci e sacrificio ta subi den e palo di
eik y ta corta e mata los cu un sikkel
di oro, segun leyenda. E otro sacer-
dotenan ta para cuidadosamente bao

nan bistir hancho asina cu el cai. E
Druidonan tabata kere cu si e mist-
letoe toca terra e ta perde su forza.
E hugo di e blachi y beshinan co-
lecta tabata worde traha den un
mezcla cual tabata worde sirbi na uin
banquet cu ta sigui ariba e ritual di
corta e palo. Mistletoe cu ta biba
ariba eik ta un symbol di protection
contra tur peligro. Su calidadnan me-
dicinal tabata recomendd asina halto
cu e tabata carga number di Cura-

Hopi Ceremonia
Tin Kelto y Scandinavonan cu
ainda ta buske'le cu hopi ceremonia
ariba bispo di fiesta di San Juan
como resto di e ritonan di e Druido-
nan antiguo. E hendenan aki ta em-
plea un tirador di flecha pa tira e
mistletoe for di palonan di eik y nan
ta coge'le promer cu e toca terra. E
famoso boog di oro cual e legendario
Aeneas a piki pa asegura un bon
viaje ariba su viaje peligroso pa otro
mundo tabata di mistletoe. E Ro-
manonan tabata contend cu ora Ju-
piter a descende for di cielo, el a
biba den un mondi di mistletoe.
Tambe e Romanonan a insist cu un
ramita di mistletoe ta asegura pasada
seguro over di e rio Styx pa bai
Hades. Antiguo ritonan matrimonial
di Griegonan, cual ta usa mistletoe,
ta worde menciona como esun cu a
causa e tradition come mata di sun-
chimento awendia.
Semper mistletoe a rondona ro-
mance. Mytologia norwega ta conta e
storia di Balder, yiu di Odin y Dios
di Paz y Solo, kende presumible-
mente tabata invulnerable pa herida.
E otro diosnan tabatin placer pa
tire'le cu flecha, pasobra nan tabata
sabi cu el no por a worde heridA. Un
dia un enemigo a subi enscena. El a
traha un flecha di mistletoe y a per-
suadi e dios ciego, Hoder, pa tira
Balder, kende a cai morto e mo-
mento cu e flecha a coge'le. E otro
diosnan a rebiba Balder, y a pone
mistletoe como guardian di e Diosa
di Amor.
E boog di sunchi tabata parti di
Inglaterra Antiguo promer cu kerst-
boom a bira popular. E boog di sun-
chi, un decoracion den forma di
handszhoen consistiendo di cuatro
mitar cirkel y un cirkel complete di

the nether world was mistletoe. The
Romans declared that when Jupiter
descended from heaven, he resided in
a mistletoe bush. The Romans also
insisted that a sprig of mistletoe
would assure safe passage across the
river Styx into Hades. Ancient Greek
marriage rites, which used mistletoe,
are said to the forerunners of today's
usage as a kissing plant.
Romance has always surrounded
mistletoe. Norse mythology tells the
story of Balder, son of Odin and God
of Peace and Sun, who was supposed
to be invulnerable to wounds. The
other gods took delight in shooting
arrows at him because they knew he
could not be hurt An enemy chanced
upon the scene one day. He made an
arrow of mistletoe and urged the
blind god, Hoder, to shoot it at Bal-
der, who fell dead the minute it hit
him The other gods and goddesses
restored Balder to life, and placed
mistletoe in the safe-eeoping of the
Goddess of Love as her symbol
The Kissing Bough was a part of
Old England long before the Christ-
mas tree became popular The Kiss-
ing Bough, a globe-shaped decuia-
tion of four half circles and one full
circle of mistletoe, had eight candles
which were lighted every evening
throughout the Twelve Days of
Christmas It was hung from the
ceiling, high enough for a couple to
stand beneath it for a kiss It was
said that a girl not kissed undei the
Kissing Bough would not marry the
following year
