Patent Application Made

On Invention by Mclntyre
A United States patent application was made March 30 for a control
system for petroleum refinery fractionators which is the invention of
J F. McIntyre, TSD-Process supervising engineer. The invention has
been assigned to the Esso Research and Engineering Company and Mr.
McIntyre has been paid the standard $50 assignment fee.

Mi McIntyie got his idea two,
years ago when he wias an assistant
supeivlsor in TSD-
Pi ocess assigned
to Catalytic aol

sence, his system

ity and volutoic ?
ity and vo s J. F. Mclntyre
produced In ad-
dition, Esso Research is now using
this control system where applicable
in the construction of new refining
towers with investment savings (of
between $20,000 and $40.000 thlou li
the elimination of reflux di urns an-d
allied installations necessary on old

Control System
Mr McIntyre's invention is a sys-
tem of instrument controllers wh:ih
eliminate upsets caused by changes
in heat ut or removal. By elimln-
ating these variables, tower ope.-
ation is considerably simplified and
it is possible to obtain better control
of product purity
The invention is being used at a
number of Lago's refining towers mn-
cluding most of those at NFAR
where the new system eliminates up-
sets caused by abrupt weather
changes such as rain falling on the
air fin condensers Sudden temper t-
ture changes such as this in the old
system caused upsets in the fraction-
atois thus affecting product purity.
Mr. McIntyie joined Lago in Juno,
1952, aftel he was graduated from
the Missouri School of Mines where
he received a bachelor of science de-
gree in chemical engineering.

2 ARUBA ESSO NEWS June 3, 1961


Printed by the Aruba Drukkerij N.Y., Neth. Ant.

Half-W/ay Mark
The year will soon be half gone so now is a good time to stop and
take stock of what has transpired and what the est of 1961 holds in
Throughput figures tell us that the refinery is producing according
to schedule and capacity. Safety figures tell us that by and large most
of us are heeding the safety resolutions we were urged to make at the
beginning of the year. There are no figures, however, that tell us how
we are doing individually if we are pulling our share of the load, if
we are conscientious on the job and willing to accept new ideas and
ways of doing the job.
These performances are known. Each of us can make a fairly close
estimate of our personal performances during the first half of tihe
year. Too, we can pass judgment on ourselves -good, mediocre, bad.
Why should we take the time and effort to evaluate ourselves as
Lago employees? The answer is simple and direct. Lago is not a mach-
ine that thinks and acts for itself. That machine hasn't been invented
yet nor likely ever will be. Lago is people, people who have skills,
training and educations that are directed to a common goal to,
produce petroleum products as efficiently and economically as possible.
True, the ultimate responsibility lies with Lago's directors and execu-
tives but they can only direct and follow up. No executive group can
extract that extra bit of performance from each of several thousand
employees. That is entirely up to the individual. Again, why bother?
Because it's up to everyone of us to do our bit to keep the refinery in
a healthy competitive position. This, in turn, means better job security
for our employee force as a whole. Again we revert to the word
"Responsibility." As employees we are responsible to ourselves, our
loved ones and our community. We have mouths to feed at home,
children to keep housed, dressed and educated. We have a society -
a way of life to maintain, to strive to elevate.
It is our duty to ourselves to make Aruba an even better place in
which to live and raise our families and to make Lago an even better
and safer place to work.

Mitar di Anja
Pronto mitar di anja lo a pasa y pues awor ta un bon ora pa para y
tuma nota di loke a pasa caba y loke e resto di 1961 ta contene.
E cifranan di production ta munstra nos cu generalmente tur di nos
ta observando e resolucionnan di seguridad cu nos a haci na principio
di anja. Sinembargo, no tin cifra cu ta conta nos con nos ta hacienda
individualmente si nos ta hacienda nos parti, si nos ta consciensioso
na trabao y dispuesto pa acepta ideanan nobo y medionan pa hadi
E prestacionnan aki ta conoci. Cada un di nos por haci un calculacion
basta correct di nos actuacion personal durante e promer mitar anja.
Tambe, nos por pasa huzgamento tocante nos mes bon, median,
Pakiko nos mester tuma e tempo y esfuerzo pa evalua nos mes como
empleadonan di Lago. E contest ta simple y director. Lago no ta un
mashien cu ta pensa y actua pa su mes. Un sorto di mashien asina no
a worde invent ainda y probablemente nunca lo worde inventA. Lago
ta consist di hende, hende cu tin cierto saber, entrenamento y educa-
cion cu ta dirigi ariba un obheto comfin pa produce productonan di
petroleo mes eficiente y economicamente possible. Berdad, e responsah:-
lidad final ta keda cerca e director y ehecutivonan di Lago pero sola-
mente nan por dirigi y haci evaluacion. Ningun grupo ehecutivo por
extrae e tiki prestacion mas for di cada un di varies miles di emplea-
donan. Esey ta keda henteramente na e persona. Atrobe, pakiko pre-
ocupa? Pasobra ta keda na cada un di dos pa haci su parti pa tene
refineria den un position competitive saludable. Esaki, en turno, ta
nifica mehor seguridad di trabao pa nos cuerpo di empleadonan den
totalidad. Atrobe nos ta bini ariba e palabra "responsabilidad." Como
empleado nos ta responsible pa nos mes, esnan cu nos ta stima y nos
comunidad. Nos tin bocanan pa tene habri na cas, yiunan pa cria, bisti
y educa. Nos tin un sociedad -un modo di bida pa mantene, pa
purba logra y pa eleva.
Ta nos deber pa haci Aruba un lugar ainda mehor pa biba y cria
nos familiar y pa haci Lago un lugar ainda mas seguro pa traha.

Invents, Builds

Testing Device
Ingenuity and inventiveness re-
cently paid off for Max Sand,
technical assistant in the Mech-
anical Department's Instrument
Shop. Mr. Sand realized that there
was a definite need for a device to
test components used in the TSD-
Laboratories Automatic Standard
Distillation Apparatus and that this
testing, to be effective, had to be
under simulated operating conditions
No such testing device was on the
market so Mr Sand designed his own
tester and then built it out of va -
ions spare instrument parts Because
of the considerable savings on ASD
Apparatus maintenance, Mr. Sand
received a Coin Your Ideas award
of Fls 900 in April. In addition, his
idea was judged the CYI-of-the-
Month for which he received an in-
scribed cigarette lighter Winners of
this special monthly prize have their
choice of the lighter or multi-bladed
pocket knife.
Before the adoption of Mr. Sand's
testing device, major iepan pi ,-
lems were being experienced wl;h
the ten ASDA quality controlled i
Electric relays had to be tested by
trial and error in the apparatus it-
self and the intricate drive motor in-
out clutch could not be tested under
simulated operating conditions. Con-
siderable maintenance delay was ex-
perenced with the important lab-
oratory machines With Mr. Sand

Forthcoming Election

Significance Stated
As I think you all know, there will be an election a'
Lago later on in the year This election will determine
how our employees want to be represented in collective
dealings with the company. Since we believe the election
and its results will be of great significance, not only for
us at Lago, but for the community, I thought you might
be interested in hearing something concerning its back-
ground and meaning.
First, let me mention a few dates and developments.
On March 13, following consultation with the Lago
Employee Council, Lago management announced that,
after expiration of the then existing contract on April 30.
no bargaining on a new contract would take place until an
election is held to determine what form of representation
is preferred by our employees.
On May 6. the rules under which the election will be
held were posted and published at Lago.
After interested representation groups have had a
reasonable opportunity to qualify to ,ppear on the ballot,
and to publicize their existence and objectives, the election
will be held. We think this will be around August 1.
Questions which Lago is most frequently asked con-
cerning these developments are:
Why is the election being held?
What are Lago's objectives in taking this course of
action ?
And what are Lago's views with respect to the outcome
of the election ?
First, why is the election being held?
Since 1949, Lago's employees eligible for representation
have been represented by the LEC. The Lago Employee
Council was recognized by Lago as such representative
following a referendum in 1949, when over eighty-five per
cent of our employees indicated they wished to be repres-
ented by the LEC, and authorized them to establish a
constitution and enter into a working agreement on their
behalf with the Company.
Council Recognition
In extending such recognition, Lago agreed with the
LEC that it would continue to recognize the Council dur-
ing the life of the working agreement unless, in a refer-
endum conducted under the terms of the agreement, a
majority of employees represented by the LEC voted for
such recognition to be withdrawn. An agreement to con-
tinue recognition on this basis has been part of every
working agreement or contract between the LEC and Lago
ever since.
Meanwhile, around 1954 an affiliate of the International
Federation of Petroleum Workers was organized in Aruba.
Since its establishment, this organization has constantly
attempted to secure recognition by Lago as representative
of some or all of our bargainable employees.
As you know, they instigated a strike in November,
1960, in an attempt to secure such recognition. The strike
itself was not a success -fewer than 100 of our employ-
ees stayed out for its duration. In the discussions with the
federal mediator as well as in announcements published
during this period, Lago clarified that it had an obligation
to the LEC and its constituents to recognize the Council
as sole bargaining agent for our employees during the
life of the then existing contract, unless a referendum
conducted under the terms of the contract resulted in
withdrawal of recognition.
Lago also clarified that it could not and would not un-
ilaterally violate its written and moral obligation to ob-
serve the terms of this agreement.
Obligation And Clarification
Despite this clear obligation and its clarification by
Lago, it was erroneously and we consider, in some
cases, irresponsibly reported that the strike was due to
Lago's unwillingness to permit a free representation
The fact of this erroneous reporting, as well as the fact
that the strike had been instigated in violation of an obli-
gation of Lago employees under the LEC contract not to
strike, first led Lago's management to consider the pos-
sible need and value of initiating a representation election
after the current contract with the LEC had expired.
Then, within two months after the attempt to strike in
November, the same elements threatened another strike,
this time because they were specifically unwilling to have
a referendum conducted under the terms of the LEC con-
tract, even though employees who identified themselves
with the IFPW affiliate had sponsored a petition request-
ing that such a referendum should be held.
At this point the Government declared a cooling-off
period of ninety days under the Labor Dispute Ordinance
although without first contacting or requesting any in-
formation from Lago's management.
Best Interest Of All
It was during this period, then, early in March th:3
year, that Lago management concluded it would be in the
best interest of all concerned to announce, entirely of its
own volition and with the concurrence of the LEC, that a
representation election would take place before bargaining
would begin on a new contract to replace the contract
which would expire on April 30.
This decision was based on one major and over-riding
consideration that a contract entered into as a result of
collective bargaining should represent a guarantee for the

Message First Presented To Rotary
At a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Aruba, J. V.
Friel, Industrial Relations manager, read a paper on the
development and significance of the forthcoming repres-
entation election In addition to aspects that have led to
the coming contest for representative leadership, Mr Fricl
clearly iterates Lago's tremendous interest in its employ-
ees' decision. The importance of the message is such that
it is printed in full on these pages, and is the subject of
next week's Lago Hour.

Mensaje Present6 Na Rotary Promer
Na un reunion reciente di Rotary Club di Aruba, J. V.
Friel, gerente di Industrial Relations, a lesa un papel ariba
desarrollo y nificacion di e proximo election di represent-
acion. Fuera di aspectonan cual a result den un concurso
pa decidi kende lo gula representation, Sr. Friel a repiti
claramente e interest tremendo cu Lago tin den e decision
di su empleadonan. Importancia di e mensaje ta asina L.u
e ta worde publicA complete ariba paginanan aki, y lo ta
e tema di program di Ora di Lago otro siman.

two parties involved. For one party, the worker, it should
guarantee certain levels of pay, benefits, working con-
ditions and security. For the other party, the company, it
should guarantee that in return for these considerations
the workers will supply their services as required during
the life of the contract.
In other words, for the company, unless a contract
guarantees stability of operation, the company has made
a poor bargain. The record of a wildcat strike in Novem-
ber, and the apparent threat of another in February, bota
on the issue of Lago's unwillingness to deviate from its
obligations under the LEC contract, seemed to justify by
common prudence the procedure of establishing once again
how our employees want to be represented before enter-
ing into a new contract on their behalf.
Now, what are Lago's objectives in initiating this
course of action?
There are three principal ones.
First, to establish beyond any possibility of doubt or
question our willingness and desire for our employees to
be represented in the manner the majority choose. In
keeping with this objective, the election rules provide that
any representation organization or group may appear on
the election ballot, provided it submits a valid petition
signed by at least ten per cent of eligible Lago employees
that they desire the name of the organization or group to
appear on the ballot.
Second, we wish to assure that there can be no question
that the election results are a bona fide expression of our
employees' representation preference. This objective will
be accomplished by two means.
The first is the provision that a majority of eligible
employees must participate in the election for its results
to be recognized as valid.
Independent Auditing Firm
The other is the use of an independent auditing firm to
conduct the election. No Lago management members or
employees will function in any way as election officials.
The results of the election will be made known to Lago
management in an affidavit which will be prepared by a
notary immediately following the election.
And the third objective is to re-affirm, once and for all,
our willingness to deal in good faith with the majority
choice of our employees for purposes of collective bargain-
ing. It is for this reason that Lago has committed itself
to recognize and enter into collective negotiations with
whatever organization or group our employees may des-
ignate as their choice for this purpose.
Let me make clear, these objectives are not new. They
are basic to our long-standing belief and stated policy
with respect to the right of the worker to be represented
as he chooses. I -and Lago have tried to spell out
our objectives in this manner because we want there to be.
no question in the minds of our employees, the public ou
the government where Lago stands on the principle of
representation for our employees.
Lago's Views
And now, what are Lago's views with respect to the'
possible outcome of the election?
If you asked me, "Who do you think will win the elect-
ion?," I would have to tell you that right now I don't
even know how many horses will be in the race, much less
what the form chart shows.
If you then asked me, "Don't you care what the out-
come of the election is?," I would reply, "Yes, Lago car os
very much indeed."
Lago believes that, in this election, its employees wil;
be making a decision which can be crucial to their future,
the future of the company and the future of Aruba.
Therefore, Lago must care that the decision of its em-
ployees reflects their best judgment concerning these
three futures that are so inescapably bound together
theirs, the company's and the community's.
Lago is as convinced as it ever was that, whatever the
form of representation our employees choose, to be in
their best interest:
It must be of a kind that can deal realistically and
knowingly with the problems of our employees, our com-
pany, and our community.

Election Importante

Pa Empleado di Lago
Manera mi ta kere boso tur sabi lo tin un election na
Lago mas laat e anja aki. E election ski lo determine con
nos empleadonan ta desea di worde represents den trata-
mento colectivo cu Compania. Como nos ta kere cu e elec-
cion y su resultadonan lo ta di gran significancia, no sola-
mente pa nos na Lago, pero pa e comunidad, mi a pensa
cu podiser boso ta interest. di tende algo tocante su his-
toria y nificacion.
Promer, laga mi menciona algun fecha y eventonan.
Ariba 13 di Maart, despues di consultacion cu Lago Em-
ployee Council, directive di Lago a anuncia cu, despues di
expiracion di e contract existente ariba April 30, lo no tin
negociamento di un contract nobo sino te ora un election a
worde teni pa determine ki forma di representation nos
empleadonan ta prefer.
Ariba 6 di Mei e reglanan segun cual e election lo worde
teni a word anunciA y public na Lago.
Despues cu gruponan representative cu ta interest haya
un oportunidad razonable pa cualifica pa aparece ariba e
papel di vota, y pa duna publicidad na nan existencia y
prop6sitonan, e election lo worde teni. Nos ta kere ca
esaki lo ta banda di 1 di Augustus.
Preguntanan cu ta worde haci cu mas frecuencia na
Lago tocante e desaroyonan aki ta:
Pakiko e election ta worde teni?
Kiko Lago ta contempla cu e rumbo di accion aki?
Y kiko ta opinion di Lago tocante resultado di e elec-
Na promer lugar, pakiko e election ta worde teni?
Desde 1949, empleadonan di Lago eligible pa represen-
tacion a worde representA pa LEC. Lago Employee Coun-
cil a word reconoci door di Lago como tal representation
despues di un referendum na 1949, tempo cu mas cu 85e
di nos empleadonan a indica cu nan ta desea di worde re-
presenta door di LEC, ya autoriza e cuerpo pa establece
su constitution y realize un combenio di trabao cu com-
pania na nan number.
Reconocemento di Council
Extendiendo tal reconocemento, Lago a combini cu LEC
cu e lo sigui reconoce e Council durante bida di e com-
benio di trabao a menos si, den un referendum conduct
segun reglanan di e combenio, un mayoria di empleadonan
representA door di LEC vota pa kita tal reconocemento.
Un combenio pa sigui reconocemento ariba e base aki
desde e tempo semper tabata parti di tur combenio di
trabao of contract entire LEC y Lago.
Mientras tanto, rond di 1954, un afiliado di International
Federation of Petroleum Workers a worde organizA na
Aruba. Desde su establecimento, e organization aki con-
stantemente a purba obtene reconocemento door di Lago
como representante di algun of tur nos empleadonan e.i
ta cai bao esfera di tratonan colectivo.
Manera boso sabi, nan a instiga un huelga na November
1960 den un esfuerzo pa purba haya tal reconocemento.
E huelga mes no tabata un exito menos cu 100 di nos
empleadonan a keda afor den henter e period cu el a
dura. Den discusionnan cu e Mediador di Gobierno y tambe
den anuncionan publicA durante e period aki, Lago a cla-
rifica cu e tabatin un obligacion pa cu LEC y su constite-
yentenan pa reconoce e Council como itnico agent nego-
ciativo pa nos empleadonan pa duracion di e contract
existent e tempo, a menos un referendum conduct segun
provisionnan di e contract result den kitamento di re-
Lago a clarifica tambe cu e no por y lo no viola unila-
teralmente su obligacion por escrito y moral pa observe
reglanan di e contract aki.
Obligacion y Clarificacion
No obstante e obligacion claro aki y su clarificacion
door di Lago, a worde report erroneamente -y nos to
consider den algun caso, irresponsablemente cu e
huelga tabata debi na e hecho cu Lago no kier permit un
election di representation liber.
E hecho di e reportamente erroneo aki, y tambe e hecho
cu e huelga a worde instigA en violacion di un obligacion
di empleadonan di Lago segun e contract di LEC pa no
huelga, na promer lugar a hiba directive di Lago na con-
sidera e possible necesidad y valor di inicia un election di
representation despues cu e contract coriente cu LEC
Despues, dentro di dos luna di e esfuerzo pa huelga na
November, e mes elementonan a amenaza cu un otro
huelga, e biaha aki pasobra specificamente nan no tabata
kier pa laga conduct un referendum segun termino di e
contract di LEC, make empleadonan cu a identifica nan
mes cu e afiliado di IFPW a auspicia un peticion pidiendo
pa un tal referendum worde teni.
Na e punto aki Gobierno a declara un period atempe-
rante di 90 dia ariba base di e Ley di Conflicto di Trabao,
sinembargo, sin tuma contact of pidi ningun information
promer cerca directive di Lago.
Mehor Interes Di Tur
Tabata durante e period aki anto, tempran na luna di
Maart, cu directive di Lago a conclui cu lo ta na mehoi
interest di tur esnan concern pa anuncia, henteramente di
su mes voluntad y cu concurencia di LEC, cu un election
di representation lo tuma lugar promer cu negociamento
cuminza ariba un contract nobo pa tuma lugar di e con-
tract cu lo caduca ariba April 30.

Qatsometer Checks Speed

Police Qet



The police of Aruba have introduced a new traffic
device. The device is one that will not be readily
seen, and when it is, chances are the driver will have
already activated and passed the road-surface instru-
ment. For all that can be seen are two thin, gray
strips of tubing extended across the road. Though
small, they accurately register the speed of cars pass-
ing over them.
The two strips are tiny air hoses spaced exactly
ten meters, ten centimeters apart. The hoses make
contact with an electric current at the road's edge. A
car passing over the tubes sets off and stops an im-
pulse that registers the time the car travelled the
distance between the tubes in hundredths of seconds.
The time corresponds to kilometers an hour, whi:l
immediately gives the attending policeman the car's
The policeman one of the unit's advantages 1r
that one officer can handle the entire traffic oper-
ation stations himself beyond the tubes at what-
ever distance he deems necessary to control traffic.
It can be as far away as 200 meters. Normally, and
for Aruba operation it will be 100 meters. The of-
ficer need not be at roadside, he can be away from
the road as long as it remains in full view.
The line that carries the electric impulse connects
the hoses to the meter. The meter, which looks and
acts much like the odometer on a car, is held by the
policeman. The control device is called a Gatsometer.
Its name is derived from the inventor's, Gatsoneter.
One of Holland's foremost racing drivers he con-
stantly sought an accurate means of timing his racing
cars. His invention now not only times racing cars
but also passenger cars that shouldn't be racing. As
emphasized by Police Commissioner C A. de Jager,
the primary purpose of the Gatsometer is to help
control traffic, and make drivers aware of their
There will only be one in use in Aruba at present,
There is also one in use in Curacao. The speed meas-
uring unit will be used at different locations on dif-
ferent roads Its power is drawn either from battery
or direct current.

ASSOCIATE JUSTICE J.V. M. van Koot and Police Commissioner C. A.

elapsed in the car's travel over air hoses laid across the roadbed, right.
Constable P. Kooistra, Chief Constable H. Stegeman and Sub-Inspecto,'
R. J. DeKeyzer, top, look at Gatsometer, which records speed.

Poliz A Introduce Aparato

Nobo di Trafico na Aruba
Poliznan na Aruba a introduce un aparato nobo di trafico. E aparato
ta asina cu e no ta worde noti liher, y ora e worde nota, muy probable-
mente ya e chofer lo a pasa ariba e instrument ariba camina y pone'le
traha. Tur loke ta visible ta dos linja fini di un tubo color shinishi cu
ta pasa ariba camina. Maske con chikito, nan ta registra cu precision e

velocidad di autonan cu ta pasa ariba
E dos linjanan ta hose chikito poni
exactamente diez metro y diez centi-
metro separa. E hose ta haci contact
cu un coriente electric na rand di
camina. Un auto cu pasa over di e
tubonan ta active y despues para un
impulso cu ta registra e tempo cu e
auto a tuma pa recorre e distancia
entire e tubonan den cientos di un
second. E tempo ta correspond na
kilometro pa ora, loke ta duna e poliz
cu ta atende e instrument velocidad
di e auto.
E poliz un di e ventahanan di
e aparato aki ta cu un solo poliz port
tuma encargo di henter e operation
- ta staciona su mes mas leuw di e
tubonan na e distancia cu el ta con-
sidera necesario pa control trafico.
Por ta te na un distancia di 200
metro. Normalmente, y aki na Aruba,
e distancia lo ta 100 metro. E poliz
no tin mester di ta canto di camina;
el por ta basta leuw for di camma
tan tempo cu el keda plenamente vi-
E linja cu ta carga e impulse elec-

trico ta conecta e hosenan na e
metro. E metro, cual ta parce y ta
traha casi mescos cu e odometer
ariba un auto, ta worde teni door di
e poliz. E aparato aki yama Gatso-
meter. Su number ta bim for di su
inventor, Gatsoneter. Un di e promi-
nente pustadornan di auto, el tabata
constantemente buscando medionan
