American-Flag Tanker Is

Harbor's Largest Visitor
With multi-color signal flags whipping in a light breeze to visually
announce her maiden voyage, the largest tanker ever to enter San
Nicolas Harbor moved slowly and majestically through the west en-
trance Dec. 29. The record-breaking visitor was the Orion Hunter, a

67,233 deadweight-ton vessel with
beam of 104 feet. Owned by the Orion
Shipping and Trading Company in
New York City, the Orion Hunter is
currently the largest American-flag
tanker afloat. She'll lose this title

her great bulk safely to No. 2 Finger

were the Esso San Nicolas and the

ernment tug Arikok. It was the first
time in the history of the harbor
that three tugs were engaged simul-
taneously in the docking of a single
vessel. The three were furnishing

Rainfall Is Heavy
At Lago in 1961;
29.71 Inches Fall
If Aruba had wild ducks indigenous
to its flatlands, 1961 certainly would
have been a good year for them.
Last year was the sixth wettest
since the Analytical Laboratory
started measuring rainfall in 1929.
During 1961 a total of 29.71 inches
of rain fell on the south end of
Aruba. More than half of this year-
long total was recorded during the
last three months of the year when
7.126 inches fell in October, 7.367
inches fell in November and 4.653
fell in December. Wettest year on
record was 1950 when a whopping
44.16 inches fell.
The first year of full measurement
by the lab, 1930, saw just 7.73 inches
recorded. The year before last, in-
cidentally, was the seventh driest
year. Only 10.78 inches fell all year.
Other dry years were 1939, 1940,
1941, 1945, 1947, 1948, 1958 and 1959.
An average of about 37 inches fell
in 1955 and 1956. The next year was
about average, but in 1958 only 9.87
inches fell. The average up to 1957
was 19.52 inches.
In a period of twenty-seven and a
half hours last year, a third of the
year's total rainfall was recorded.
Hurricane Anna's proximity to Aruba
was heralded with 4.46 inches of rain
that fell in a twenty-four-hour per-
iod from 7 a.m. July 20.
The real cloud burst occurred Oct.
12. In just three and one-half hours,
a total of 5.5 inches of rain poured
on the south end of the island.

THIS TUG-dwarfing tanker is the largest American-flag tanker in service. Christened the
Orion Hunter Dec. 20 after three-day trials earlier that month, the 67,233 deadweight-ton
tanker made her maiden voyage to Aruba. She moved through San Nicolas Harbor's west
entrance Dec. 29 and became the largest ship to dock at a Lago pier. The complete picture
story on the Orion Hunter is on page 3.

    Lago Driver's Action Averts Disaster
    Quick thinking on the part of G. T. Walle, air-
    craft fueling driver and maintenance man in Proc-
    ess-Light Oils Finishing, averted a lot more than a
    collision between his tank truck and an errant
    motorist. Mr. Walle, who has been piloting semi- i
    trailer tank trucks at Lago with complete safety
    for nearly eleven years, was delivering a load of
    highly volatile aviation gasoline and jet fuel to "
    Princess Beatrix Airport the afternoon of Dec. 18
    when the near disaster occurred.
    Traffic conditions were light as he approached -- -
    the road that leads to Brazil from the main high-
    way at a speed much lower than the limit. One car
    was in front of his truck, which was loaded with
    3000 gallons of 115/145 high octane avgas and 1000 -
    gallons of jet fuel. Two cars were approaching with
    one tail-gating the other.
    Suddenly, with all disregard for the big Esso tank
    truck's presence, the driver of the second car in the
    left lane started to pass. A head-on collision was
    imminent. The car was heading straight for Mr.
    Walle's tank truck at a high closing speed. .

    Lago Sport Park's island-wide 1962
    cricket competition will start Jan. 21
    when St. Eustatius meets Golden
    Rock. The opening contest starts at
    10 am. and will continue until 5:30
    p m. The number of teams in the
    play this year has dropped from six
    to four In addition to the St. Eusta-
    tins and Golden Rock teams, St.
    '.I Martin and White Wall will vie for
    championship honors Last year St.
    Eustatius was the Eastern League
    championship team and St. Martin
    was the top team in the Western
    League. Because of the limited num-
    ber of teams in this year's compe-
    tition, it will be a round-robin tourn-
    ament with teams playing each other
