TV Panel in U.S.
A plug for Aruba and Esso was
televised to millions of TV viewers in
the United States and Canada one
morning this July. The show was
WNBC-TV's "Play Your Hunch" and
the plugger was Kitty Thompson,
seven-year-old daughter of D. V
Thompson, principal of the Lago
Community Schools Her father des-
cribes Kitty as shy and reticent, out
she made her point on the panel-quiz
program that is telecast throughout
North America in color and black
According to Mr. Thompson, a
chain of events led up to Kitty's
appearance on a show that let her
share the limelight with June Havoc,
star of stage and screen.
"My wife Doris had just bought
Kitty a new dress," Mr. Thompson
said, "and Kitty was primping in a
subway station mirror."
About that time, he went on, a
female talent scout approached Mrs.
Thompson and asked her if she would
allow her daughter to appear on the
television program. Both parents
later agreed and the show's adver-
tising agency gave final approval of
the photogenic youngster.
After adults, including Miss Havoc,
had participated during the first half
of the July 31 morning program,
Kitty and two other youngsters tried
to stump the panel. Each was to
make up a story about themselves.
The panel was to guess which was
fabricating personal background.
Kitty came on after a boy, aged
twelve, had said his daddy was a
general in Iceland. The emcee said,
"What kind of a general?" The
youth piped up, "A good general!'

The road to the gasoline dock is
being widened to make room for a
security fence leading from the main
road to the docks. When the job is
finished a thirteen-foot fenced road-
way will flank an open twenty-four-
foot roadway. A control point of two
gates will be installed on the main
road so that seamen can be confined
to the docks and finger piers. One
gate will control the fenced-in road
to the Gasoline Dock and the other
will be used from 6 pm. until 6 a.m.
to close off the road leading to the
Acid and Edeleanu Plants. Authoriz-
ed refinery personnel will use the
unfenced roadway for access to the

Several charges of dynamite were
used to blast off the cliff face. Holes
were drilled in the rock to take the
half-poumd sticks. Charges were fired
electrically. A large blasting mat kept
stones and rubble from flying.

Has Led Eventful
A Biba Un
W. A. MURRAY
A man of wide and diversified background holds Lago's
Walter A. Murray was born in Vancouver, British
Columbia, on the Pacific coast of Canada. His boyhood
was not unlike that of other Canadian youths. Events of
life which unfolded later, however, shaped varied and in-
teresting experiences for the future Lago president.
In his late 'teens and early twenties the desire and
industriousness inherent to his nature directed the youth-
ful Walter Murray along an avenue of life as varied and
as far afield from petroleum as one could possibly wander.
Mr. Murray recollects that he had no burning desire to
enter the oil industry while an engineering student at the
University of British Columbia. In fact, the university
student Murray availed himself of widely diversified ac-
tivities while attaining scholastic and athletic distinction.
His interests, riding the vehicle of boundless energy and
curiosity, ranged from pilot to fishing boat cook. One in-
fluenced a period of his life nine years later; the other
could have changed many events, but, instead, resolved
itself into a sparkling respite amid the mundane and
dreary prospects facing a college graduate.
Graduated in 1931
Mr. Murray graduated from the University of British
Columbia in 1931 with a mechanical engineering degree.
These were the so-called "Hungry Thirties." Jobs, of any
type, ran from scarce to none. Mr. Murray's qualifica-
tions along with his mechanical engineering degree were:
a pilot's license earned while a student through an auxili-
ary or reserve training program of the Royal Canadian
Air Force; three summers in the salmon industry as a
cook, net mender, store clerk and marine service station
operator who dispensed gasoline and oil to the fisherman,
and assistant bookkeeper, and, outstanding rugby ability.
What he didn't have was: a job.
Mr. Murray went to Ottawa in eastern Canada in search
of employment. At the time the Ottawa professional foot-
ball team was trying out new prospects. One of the new
prospects was W. A. Murray, who, not having a job, but
having a wealth of experience in rugby or English-type
football adjudged this to be an excellent opportunity. He
never did learn how the professionals appraised his foot-
ball abilities, because another adventure captured his in-
terests and he returned to western Canada.
There he concentrated all his efforts on another try-out.
This time it was for an All-Canadian rugby team being
formed to tour Japan. Rugby was then and still is Mr.
Murray's favorite sport. His abilities which made him an
outstanding collegiate rugby player earned him a place
on the all-star team. Mr. Murray was selected with
athletes from all over Canada in the fall of 1931. The team
left for Japan in January, 1932. The Canadians won five
games against Japanese college teams, and were beaten
by two select Japanese teams.
Two months later the team returned to Canada, was
disbanded, and once again Mr. Murray sought employ-
ment. His first job was an attendant at an Imperial Oil
Co. service station. Six months later, however, he was out
of work when Imperial sold its service stations. At this
point, Mr. Murray recalls a gap of about six months in
employment. It was explicitly a circumstance of no jobs
Finally, he acquired a job with Imperial, his second
since graduation. This one was not at a service station,
though, it was at the loco Refinery in British Columbia.
His job classifications hadn't changed much. He went
from service station attendant to refinery laborer. But at
least he had a job. Ahead of him awaited a tremendous
career in the oil industry, and behind him, relegated to
memory were professional football, touring rugby team
Mr. Murray's first year at loco was spent in what was
called the "bull gang." This particular group of workers
did everything, as Mr. Murray states it: "Every kind of
work you can imagine, cleaned tanks, dug ditches, helped
with construction, moved tanks and equipment, anything
at all." Mr. Murray remembers vividly the first winter he
worked at loco. It was a wet winter as winters can be
on the west coast of Canada. The wet, nasty, cold meant
nothing as far as the work was concerned. The workers
just had to dress for it.
"I can remember moving tanks and doing construction
work with rain coming down in buckets. You'd be mired in
mud with everything drenched, but you'd be dressed for
it. You wouldn't be wet from the rain, you'd be wet from
perspiration underneath rubber outer garments."
It was menial work, arduous, and bore no relation to
his mechanical engineering degree, but at least he had a
job. His situation brightened at the completion of one
year with the "bull gang." Mr. Murray received his first
advancement. He became a fireman's helper. "Imperial's
loco Refinery in those days," recounts Mr. Murray in
describing his fireman's helper position, "was not what
you'd call a modern refinery. It had acid treating, as we
do at Lago, of course, but in a primitive way. We manu-
factured lube oil, and had acid treating of some of the
stocks. Sludge had to be disposed of, and it was drawn up
to a pit in front of the furnaces. Excess acid was drawn
off and burned. Then you had to sprinkle sawdust over the
sludge, go in with a pick, bar and shovel and get it out.
And when you got it out, you had to get it into the fires.
It was very interesting."
Went to Sea
Some three months later, Mr. Murray went to sea. It
almost would seem the labors of a fireman's helper would
merit a respite at sea. That was not the reason, of course.
An Imperial tanker plying the inland waterways needed a
gauger. At this juncture, the willing, jack-of-all-trades W
A. Murray accepted the job and enjoyed a pleasant sum-
mer cruising coastal waterways. Mr. Murray had no
chores at all while the ship was moving, but when it dock-
ed he was busy gauging and giving pumping signals. From
tanker and shore gauging he went into refinery gauging.
Then it happened, almost at a point when Mr. Murray
thought it never would. He was assigned a position that
related to his engineering qualifications. Imperial opened
up what was called a budget control section, and Mr.
Murray was assigned to it. The idea was a forerunner of
TSD and process control work. His functions involved in-
strument installation. Following the instrument stint, he
was assigned to the operating section of the refinery as
relief shift foreman. A full fare of engineering work came
In 1938, Mr. Murray was transferred from the Ioco to
the Sarnia Refinery. It was and still is Imperial's largest
refinery. He was sent to Sarnia specifically to work on
designs for new combination units at Imperial's Calgary
Refinery. Mr. Murray related that the plan, which never
fully evolved, had him working first on the combination
unit design in Sarnia, transferring next to Halifax Ref-
inery to operate a smaller model of this design, and fin-
ally moving to Calgary to put the new units into oper-
ation. The complete chain of events never unfolded. The
Sarnia and Halifax periods were attended, but Calgary
had to wait; the Royal Canadian Air Force had requested
his services. This was September, 1939. and the British
Commonwealth was at war.
Mr. Murray arrived in Calgary, and in less than two
weeks was in the air force. The speed with which the
RCAF swept him up was not without good reason. In
addition to attaining his pilot's qualifications in 1931, he
had, over the years, maintained his pilot's rating by fly-
ing weekends and holidays as a member of auxiliary flight

Un homber di experiencia grand y varia ta ocupa pre-
sidencia di Lago.
Walter A. Murray a nace na Vancouver, British Colum-
bia, na costa Pacifico di Canada. Su hubentud no tabata
diferente for di e otro jovennan Canades. Eventonan di
su bida despues, sinembargo, a forma experiencianan
varia y interesante pa e president future di Lagc.
Ora e tabata llegando su edad di binti anja e deseo cu
tabata parti di su naturaleza a dirigi e hoben Walter
Murray a lo largo di un camina di bida asina varia y
asina leuw for di petroleo cu nos por imagine. Sr. Murray
ta record cu e no tabatin un deseo fuerte pa drenta in-
dustria di petroleo tempo cu el tabata studia ingenieria
na Universidad di British Columbia. E studiante di colegio
Murray a ocupa su mes cu actividadnan hopi varia mien-
tras e tabata gana distinction den klas y tereno di sport.
Su interesnan, apoya pa un energia y curiosidad sin limited,
tabata varia for di aviador pa kokki abordo di boto di

resolve su mes den un tregua resplandiente entire e pros-
pectonan mundano y mon6tono enfrentando un graduado
reciente di colegio.
A Gradua na 1931
Sr. Murray a gradua for di Universidad di British
Columbia na 1931 como inginiero mecanico. Esaki tabata
e period di anjanan 1930 pa dilanti, anjanan conoci pa
scarcedad. Trabao, di cualkier sorto, tabata varia di scars
pa absolutamente nada. E otro cualificacionnan di Sr.
Murray hunto cu su grado di ingenieria tabata: un licencia
como aviador cu el a hanja door di un program di entre-
namento auxiliar of reservista di Fuerza Aerea Real di
Canada mientras e tabata studiando; durante tres verano
tras di otro el a traha den industrial di salmon como
kokki, drechador di reda, bendedor den tienda y operator
di stacion di servicio marino cu tabata bender gasoline y
azeta cu piscadornan, ayudante di tenedor di buki, y, un
sobresaliente talent pa hunga rugby. Loke e no tabatin
ta: un trabao.
Sr. Murray a bai Ottawa den part oriental di Canada
en busca di trabao. E tempo aki e equipo professional di
futbol di Ottawa tabata purbando prospectonan nobo. Un
di e prospectonan nobo tabata W. A. Murray, kende, sin
trabao, pero cu un rikeza di experiencia den rugby of fut-
bol estilo Ingles, a consider esaki un excelente oportuni-
dad. Nunca el a haya sabi con e profesionnalnan tabata
consider su talentonan di futbol, pasobra un otro aven-
tura a capture su interesnan y el a bolbe den apuro pa
Aki el a concentra tur su esfuerzonan ariba un otro
prueba. E biaha aki tabata pa un team formal di tur part
di Canada pa haci un jira pa Japon. Rugby e tempo y
ainda ta e deported favorite di Sr. Murray. Su talentonan
cu a hacie'le un hungador sobresaliente na colegio a
gan'ele un lugar den e bond Canades. Sr. Murray a worde
poni den team junto cu atletanan for di tur parti di Ca-
nada na fin di 1931. E team a sali pa Japon na Januari
1932. E Canadesnan a gana cinco wega contra teamnan
di colegionan Japones, y a worde derotA door di dos bond
equipo Japones select.
Dos luna despues e team a bolbe Canada y a word
disolvi, y un vez mas Sr. Murray tabata buscardo trabao.
Su promer trabao tabata como bendedor na an stacion di
gasoline di Imperial Oil Co. Seis luna despues, sinembargo,
e tabata sin trabao ora cu Imperial a bende su stacionnan.
Sr. Murray a keda como seis luna sin trabao. Tabata sim-
plemente un question cu no tabatin trabao disponible.
Finalmente, el a hanja un trabao cu Imperial, su di dos
desde cu el a gradua di colegio. Esaki no tabata un stacion
di gasoline, sinembargo; tabata na e refineria Ioco na

Rev. C. A. Brown To Join
'Flying Missionary' Ranks
The flying age has made it possible for physicians and missionaries
to carry their good works to those in physical and spiritual need in the
world's remote areas. The desire to set up a Church of Christ mission
in the Windward Islands of the Caribbean has led Rev. Claude A.
Brown, who ministers to the Aruba congregation, to take up flight
training so he can join the growing
ianks of flying missionalles.
Mr Brown, minister for two ears
in Aluba, has felt for some time
that flying would enable him to serve
congregations in most of the islands
in the St Vincent and Grenada areas
Two obstacles stood in his way. He
didn't know how to fly nor did he
have an anciaft for his Windwaid
The greater of the tw obstacles
was recently removed when two
emnbel s of his congregation pres-
ented him with one of two airplanes
they own and operate as Aruba Fly-
ing Club members Mr Blown's gift
was a Mooney Mite sports plane, fast
and economical to operate and ideally
suited for fly ing--missionaly work
Hii benefatils were Mr and Mts C
C Waddell of Scioe Colorado The
plane had primulaily been flown by
Mis Waddell When she learned of
Mr. Biown's goal, she suggested to
hei husband that they contribute
the Mooney Mite Mt. Waddell con-
hillrch's missionary movement
Mi Blown is working hard on le-
moving the second obstacle He is
taking flight instruction in the Aruba
Flying Club. Before he became a
(lub member he took nearly eight
houils of flight insti action in the
VWddell's Beechclaft Eonanza Ilnder
the tutelage of Mr Waddell
Mi. Blown c\pects to get his piiv-
ate license befie he leaves Aiuba
next July He and Mis Brown will
spend a few months in the United
States before taking up iesidence in
either St Vincent oi G;lenada The
couple has two grown sons.
His missionary work will take him
on flights to St. Lucia, Tobago and
smaller islands in the Grenadines He
will fly a circuit on a regular basis,
setting up missions and ministering
to small groups of Church of Christ
congregationalists that already exist
It was on a holiday flight to these
islands some time ago in a plane
owned and piloted by the Ferrol
Himeses, also members of the Church
of Christ in Aruba, that Mr. Brown
became aware of the need for a fly-
ing minister in the Windward group.
He was given the germ of the idea
by Mr. Himes and further encour-
agement came from the Waddells
Although the Mooney Mite is a
single place sports plane with lim-
ited luggage capacity, it will be more
than adequate for the short island
hops he plans to make The swift
little plane burns slightly over three
gallons of gasoline an hour yet
cruises at 100 miles an hour. An
easy-to-maintain four cylinder engine
of sixty-five horsepower pulls the
Mooney Mite through the air The
plane was brought to Aruba a few
yeais ago by a former flying club
member Several other members own-
ed it before it was purchased by the
Waddells In 1959 Mr. Waddell, as-
sistant zone supervisor in Mechanl-
cal-Field Coordination, completely
lebuilt the Mooney Mite.
Mr Brown will take all of his
basic dual instruction in the club's
tiaiing plane When his instructor
adjudges him ready for solo flight,
Mr Brown will make his initial flight
in the Mooney Mite and continue to
Build up flying hours required

Although petroleum, with the ex-
ception of those products that kept
airplane engines lubricated and fir-
ing, was the least of Mr. Murray's
major concerns during World War II,
it would be remiss not to mention his
air force career. He spent his early
months of flight duty assigned to
west coast squadrons whose primary
chore was to fly engineers and sur-
veyors to possible refueling and
camp locations. In June, 1940, he was
tapped to take a specialist course in
navigation. Four took the course; he
and another officer passed. These
were the first officers to receive
specialist navigation training in Ca-
nada. Previously, this training had
been given in England. He opened a
navigation school in Regina and was
its commanding officer until Jan-
uary, 1941. At that time, Squadron
Leader Murray moved to Ottawa to
the Royal Canadian Air Force head-
quarters where, as a staff officer,
he was navigation training advisor of

About mid-1942, Wing Commander
Murray inspected operational units
in England to ascertain what the
lack was, if any, in navigation train-
ing. He visited bomber, patrol and
fighter commands, and made patrol
flights. He commanded the Central
Navigation School in Canada until
his separation from the air force in
Oct. 1945. He held the rank of group
captain, the equivalent of a full co-
lonel, at the time of discharge.
