Concerts Presented By

Community Choir

Traditional Yule

Songs Fill Park,
L.H.S.4 auditorium
For the fourth Christmas season,
the voices of one hundred adults and
children blended in Christmas songs
both old and new at a special Lago
Sport Park concert Dec. 13. The two
evenings preceding, the Christmas
Choir had performed for Seroe Colo-
rado community residents in the
Lago High School auditorium, the
eighth season it had appeared there.
Composed of sixty adult voices and
the voices of forty youths, the choir
appeared again this year under the
very able direction of Mrs. Doris
Thompson. Accompanist was Mrs.
Ruth Collihns, also an important con-
tributor to the successful performan-
ces of past concerts with her organ
ru n .. ... and piano virtuosity.

President Extends
New Year's Greeting
The old year is nearly gone and
the new year is just a matter of a
few hours away I sincerely hope
that 1960 has been a good year
foi you and the members of your
family. And further. I wish you
good health and happiness during
the coming year.
1960 has been a marked year of
change -changes in operating
methods, changes of physical na-
ture, changes in working assign-
ments which have been abso-
lutely necessa y to help Lago
maintain its competitive position
In a highly competitive industry
All that we have accomplished
during 1960 can be attributed in
great part to the cooperative spir-
it between the men who plan
these changes -Lago's manage-
ment and those who carry out
these plans Lago's employees.
By carrying through this coope-
rative spirit in the year to come,
Lago and its employees will
jointly benefit.
Once again, I wish you a sin-
cere, happy 1961 and may you
enjoy God's blessings throughout
the year
O. Mingus

1000 Attend Park Concert
Approximately 1000 attended the
park concert and were treated to
such Christmas airs as "How Far Is
It to Bethlehem," arranged by
Tom Scott; "God Bless the Master of
this House," by Henry Hallstrom;
"O Holy Night," by Adolphe Adam,
and "We Wish You a Merry Christ-
mas," arranged by Alice Parker. The
children's choir contributed three
numbers then combined with the
adult choir in presenting three
French noels by Cameron McGraw.
All told, the choirs presented a total
of twenty songs of Christmas at
each of the concerts. Solo numbers
were aptly performed by Walt d'Us-
seau, Nancy Noyes and Angeline
The Seroe Colorado concerts were
sponsored by the Lago Community
Church while the Lago Sport Park
concert was jointly sponsored by the
Lago Sport Park Board and the
Lago Community Church. Proceeds
from the park concert will be donat-
ed to an island charity.
Lt. Gov. Beaujon
Dedicales Lago's
Bunker Terminal
Special dedication ceremonies the
afternoon of Dec. 22 marked the of-
ficial opening of Lago's new bunker-
ing terminal at Oranjestad Harbor.
As President 0. Mingus and other
Lago representatives and island dig-
nitaries looked on, Lt. Gov. F. J. C.
Beaujon opened a valve that started
bunker fuel flowing to the Grace
Line's Santa Paula.
A blue ribbon appropriately secur-
ed the valve and as the lieutenant
governor clipped it he said, "With
the clipping of this ribbon a new fa-
cility is added to the economic dev-
elopment of the island of Aruba." He
went on to relate the growth of
Lago's bunkering service at Oranje-
stad Harbor which has culminated
into the present Fls. 565.000 installa-
tion with storage facilities for 50,000
barrels of three grades of fuel. He
finished by saying, "Many ships have
been coming to Oranjestad Harbor to
take bunkers. I hope the amount of
ships will increase for the benefit of
both Lago and the island of Aruba."
Lieutenant Governor Beaujon was
introduced by Lago President O.
Mingus who said that the bunkering
terminal was Lago's contribution in
the effort to get more shipping and
increase tourist traffic. President
Mingus said the company greatly ap-
preciated the assistance of the gov-
ernment and the contractors and
their employees in building the ter-

New Procedure

For Scrap Sales

To Start Jan. 1
At the request of the Special Prob-
lems Advisory Committee, a revised
procedure for the sale of scrap mat-
erial to employees nas been develop-
ed and will be placed in effect Jan 1.
In the future, items such as desks
and kitchen sinks will be controlled
through the use of a log book. The
book will be kept at the Reclamation
Yard Office and can be reviewed
there. When an employee makes a
request for a controlled item to the
reclamation supervisor, his name and
department and date will be record-
ed in the log. If and when the mat-
erial becomes available, a memoran-
dum will be mailed to the first in-
dividual listed in the log for that
particular item. This system is being
introduced since experience has
shown that requests considerably
outnumber items available. Those
who have requests for scrap mat-
erials pending must re-submit the
unfilled orders to conform with the
new procedure. Items of a non-prior-
ity nature are paint cans, asbestos
roofing, wire mesh and the like. This
material will be disposed of on a
first-come, first-served basis.
Sales of scrap materials to em-
ployees will be made only on Tues-
days and Fridays between ours
of 7 a.m. and 12 n
ployee does not ca mafe,
within three day er r g
