It's Voting

This Tirn



Feb. 27 and 28 are Lago Employee Council election days. Fourteen
candidates have presented themselves in contest for five positions on
the Council. Those elected will represent the employees who elected
them and many more. The many more comprise that part of the elec-
torate that chooses not to vote.
Lago employees have the right of representation. But even more
basic than the actual representation is the right to vote for represen-
tatives. The members of the Lago Employee Council represent Lago
employees in matters of wages, hours, benefits and working conditions.
Council members are neither appointed nor selected by small groups.
They are elected by Lago employees who exercise their right to vote.
Those who fail to vote, as did all too many in the last LEC election,
are still governed by the actions of the elected members. Too often
dissatisfaction finds voice in the non-voter. He is quick to criticize,
quick to turn his back on Council activities, quick to note discord
among representatives. In spite of the grievance he may bear toward
representative proceedings, and such is to be human and quite natural,
he fails to use the prime tool in his possession to effect change his
Presumably, elected representatives carry the approval of the ma-
jority. The majority of what, is the question non-voters should ask.
Success of representatives and the system that gives them office rides
on the strength of the majority of the employees they represent, not
the majority of the few who vote.
One of the main precepts of democratic proceedings, either social or
industrial, is representation. Representation grants selection and voice.
It is, in the elected representative, personification of ideals, philoso-
phies, desires. To allow the election of representatives to fall before
disuse is to have no choice at all. Pointedly, this is the case of non-
voters. Of their own volition, non-voters deny themselves the right of
A candidate whose merit is questionable can swing a winning ticket
with the positive action of a few friends and the defaulting inaction of
non-voters. This isn't the theory behind democratic elections. Votes
should reflect the sympathies of all eligible employees.
Voting is a privilege, one that some people cherish and others are
striving to obtain. Voting for elected representatives as an integral
part of the entire representation system should not be taken lightly.
The ballot is a powerful weapon. It should be used whenever the op-
portunity exists and used wisely. Lago Employee Council constituents
should not void themselves of the voice they have in their represent-
ative affairs. Those who do not vote Feb. 27 and 28 are turning their
back on their own affairs.
Don't ignore your own cause. Vote Feb. 27 and 28.

Ta Tempo di Vota...,

E Biaha Aki VOTA
Feb. 27 y 28 ta dianan di election pa Lago Employee Council. Diez-
cuatro candidate a present nan mes den e concurso pa e cinco puesto-
nan den Council. Esnan eligi y lo represent e empleadonan cu a eligi
y hopi mas. E hopi mas ta constitui e parti di e electorado cu ta keda
sin vota.
Empleadonan di Lago tin derecho ariba representation. Pero ainda
mas fundamental cu e representation actual ta e derecho pa vota pa
representantenan. Miembronan di Lago Employee Council ta repre-
senta empleadonan di Lago den asuntonan di sueldo, oranan, beneficio
y condicionnan di trabao. Miembronan di Council no ta worde nombrA of
select door di gruponan chikito. Nan ta worde eligi door di empleado-
nan di Lago cu ta eherce nan derecho di vota.
Esnan cu laga di vota, manera hopi a haci den e ultimo election di
LEC, en todo easo lo worde goberni door di accionnan di e miembro-
nan eligi. Hopi vez esun cu keda sin vota ta haya motibo pa dissatis-
faccion. El ta liher pa critical, liher pa bira lomba pa actividadnan di e
Council, liher pa nota desacuerdo entire representantenan. No obstante
e contrariedad cu el por tin contra e procedernan representative, y
esey ta human y muy natural, el ta falta den usamento di su promer
herment cu el tin den su man pa efectua cambio su derecho di vota.
Presumiblemente, representantenan eligi ta carga aprobacion di e
mayoria. E mayoria di kiko ta e pregunta cu esnan cu no ta vota
mester puntra. Exito di representantenan y e sistema cu ta eligi nan
den nan puesto ta sosega ariba fortaleza di mayoria di e empleadonan
cu nan ta represent, no ariba mayoria di e poconan cu ta vota.
Un di e mayor preceptonan di procedemento democratic, sea social
of industrial, ta representation. Representacion ta atribui selection y
voz. E ta, pa medio di e representante eligi, personificacion di idealnan,
pensamento, y deseonan. Pa permit election di representantenan fra-
casa pa motibo cu no ta haci uso di e derecho aki ta mescos cu si bo
no tin e derecho aki por total. En efecto esaki ta e caso cu hopi cu no
ta vota. Di nan mes voluntad esnan cu no ta vota ta nenga nan mes e
derecho aki.
Un candidate kende su merito ta dudoso por sali cu un victoria pa
medio di e action positive di algun amigo y e falta di esnan cu no ta
vota. Esaki no ta e teoria tras di eleccionan democratic. Voto mester
refleha simpatia di tur empleadonan eligible.
Votamento ta un privilegio; uno cu algun ta stima y cu otro la lucha
pa obtene. Votamento pa representantenan eligi como un parti integral
di center e sistema di representation no ta un chanza. E papel di voto
ta un arma potente. E mester worde usa y usA huiciosamente ki ora cu
e oportunidad ta present. Constituyentenan di Lago Employee Council
no mester depriva nan mes di e voz cu nan tin den nan asuntonan di
representation. Esnan cu no vota Feb. 27 y 28 ta bira lomba pa asunto-
nan cu ta toca nan mes.
No ignora bo mes causa. Vota Feb. 27 y 28.

TSD Engineers

Use Anemometer

In Harbor Study
With the closing of the acid con-
tact plants in Acid and Edeleanu, an
unusual instrument possibly the
most unusual m the whole depart-
ment -came to the end of its use-
fulness. The subject instrument is an
anemometer which is used to measure
the force and direction of the wind.
During its acid contact plant days,
the anemometer alerted operators of
wind shifts toward San Nicolas. They
then shut down the concentrators so
that fumes would not drift toward
the community. Acid and Edeleanu's
new fume abatement furnaces have
eliminated this problem. Hot gases
are now shot up into the atmosphere
via a 150-foot stack where they are
A new use was found for the ane-
mometer by the Technical Service
Department. The instrument is now
located on the Marine Control Tower
while the recording mechanism is si-
tuated in one of the Marine Build-
ing's office rooms. Engineers in TSD
will use daily recordings of harbor
wind direction and velocity in the
study of harbor swells which was
undertaken last year by Professor F.
Gerritsen of the University of Flo-
rida. A remedial action to tame
swells in the harbor is being sought
by the professor and his university

CROWNED QUEEN of the 1961 Children's Carnival held at Lago Sport Park
Feb. 5 was petite Deborah de Robles. Her prince was Jerome Lo-A-Njoe. For the
first time, children's carnivals were held simultaneously in San Nicolas and
Oranjestad. Hundreds attended both affairs.

Months of preparation precede the colorful Carni-
val parades in San Nicolas and Oranjestad high-
lights of Aruba's Carnival season. Floats must be
designed and painstakingly constructed, costumes
must be tailored with care, hundreds of imaginative
participants try to come up with winning ideas. It's
a time of gaiety, a festival to be enjoyed by one and
all. In the Feb. 12 Oranjestad parade, the Canbe
Club's float took the honors in three categories -
historical, queen's float and float of the year. Best
group was Katanga In San Nicolas, Feb. 11, the
Vikings were judged the best group and YMCA won
the original float contest Miss Gladys Kock was
judged Aruba Carnival Queen.

ORANJESTAD PARADE viewers were treated to a variety of
colorful floats and prancing bands. There was the customary
Caribe float with powerful brave and squaw top prize winner.
And there were flashy Vikings, rhythmic Africans, pretty girls, a
gaily flowered float, steel bands and of course the glamorous
Carnival Queen and queen candidates.

Lago Products

Reach Numerous

World Locations
While competition has eliminated
or cut back many of Lago's far-
flung markets, refined petroleum
products from Aruba were shipped to
more than seventy world locations
last year. The volume to specific lo-
cations, particularly northern Euro-
pean countries, has been reduced by
national refineries, which, in turn,
have tarnished slightly some of
Lago's international if not continen-
tal mien.
The scope of world trade is still
wide. During 1960 Lago products
touched South, Central and North
America, with the United States
market the largest, Europe, Africa
and Asia. Product delivery points
are spread through latitudes from
arctic outposts in Greenland to the
whaling grounds of the antarctic, and
across longitudes from the Azores to
Japan taking in New Zealand and
Australia in the Eastern Hemisphere
and Hawaii and Iceland in the West-
ern Hemisphere. Among the termin-
uses of Lago products are names
made known by war and newspaper
such as Malta, Cyprus, Newfound-
land and the Belgian Congo.
Still other outlets challenge the
imagination such as the loosely de-
fined markets known only as At-
lantic area, or those that are com-
pletely unknown and are listed in
that manner. These probably satisfy
military requirements as do the pro-
ducts that go into Turkey and Japan,
to name but two places.
Lago's largest product in volume,
which accounted for over fifty-nine
per cent of Lago's 1960 refined pro-
ducts, was fuel oil. The smallest of
major products was turbo fuel-kero-
sene, which accounted for slightly
more than one per cent of Lago's
total 1960 volume.
In between are Lago's many other
refined products which help maintain
the economy of Aruba while supply-
ing an important energy source to
many points of the world. This even
extends to helicopter pilots flying off
the decks of whaling factory ships in
the waters of the antarctic. The heli-
copters used up 275 barrels of avia-
tion gas refined at Lago.

Rafferty Named

Raymond F. Rafferty has been
named a senior engineer in Mech-
anical-Planning and Engineering. The
promotion was effective Jan. 1. Mr.
Rafferty joined
Lago Jan. 21, 1958,
as an engineer in

ing. He came to
Lago from Stand-
ard Oil Company

had been employed there since 1952,

The Strangest Creatures Come From The Deep

HE'S GOT finnies like a mannie and feet like a frog, warts on his back
and teeth like a dog. What is it? Who knows? Jose Geerman of General
Services-Operations Divisions-Crafts doesn't know, and he caught it.
These photos are being sent to authorities in the United States with
hopes that they might know.

Scientists proclaim that there is so
much man does not know about the
ocean, its inhabitants, vegetation
and floor. Much of man's ignorance
is because the ocean is so vast, so
much of it has yet to be explored,
and so many creatures are unknown.
It is true, though, that some of the
strangest and most weird looking
creatures are denizens of the deep.
Occasionally Aruba's shores give
up mysteries of the deep. While
some of these discoveries may not
puzzle students of the ocean, they
certainly create large-scale wonder-
ment and words of exclamation.
Every now and then these creatures
are brought to the Aruba Esso News
office by their capture. Not too
long ago an underwater creature
armed with rows and rows of teeth
across the roof of its mouth was
brought in. And before that there
was the sea animal that was com-
posed of a mass of membrane-strung
jelly that lacked form or outline.
Here is another, and perhaps the
most weird one yet. Jose Geerman
of General Services-Operations Divi-
sion-Crafts caught this specimen
and brought it in. What is it? No
one seems to know, or, for that mat-
ter, even has the slightest idea of
its identification. Mr. Geerman
caught it off Malmok The pectoral
fins that hang limply from the crea-
ture's white breast are almost like
human arms. It is six inches long
and almost bat like. Its anal fins
resemble the frog's. Could it be they
are used for hopping over rocks at
the water's edge?

Engineers' Club

Seminar To Cover

Lago Products
A seven-session seminar on Lago's
products will be conducted by the
Engineers' Club. The sessions will be
held every Tuesday eyening begin-
ning Feb. 28 and ending April 11.
In past years the Engineers' Club
has held similar seminars whose sub-
jects covered processing, operational
planning, mathematics and instru-
mentation. The forthcoming sessions
will deal with Lago's crude oil feed
stocks, its products and markets.
The seminar will be opened by J.
J. Payton, who will discuss Lago
crude oil feed stocks. The April 11
meeting will conclude the seven-week
seminar with a management speaker
and the presentation of diplomas by
E. V. Holzer. In between the opening
and closing sessions, F. L. Redden
will discuss aviation and automotive
gasolines, C. F. Williams will address
the group on distillates. E. L. Dodge
will explain fuel oil, J. Shaw will dis-
cuss specialities and W. J. Butler
will explain markets.
The sessions will start at 7:30 p.m.
in the Administration Building. The
seminar committee includes T. R.
Clift, T. May, J. B. Opdyke.

Who knows? It is hoped that the
scientists at the American Museum
of Natural History in New Yolk
