Lago Employees Set Record

Low 0.34 Frequency Rate
Lago is the safest major refinery in the western hemisphere. Ey
making 1961 the safest year in the history of the refinery, Lago em-
ployees have put the refinery in the No. 1 spot in the National Safety
Council Contest. Three major records were established in Lago's
record safety year. Tne refinery had its lowest frequency rate in the

was the fourth year in which Lago

The second 1961 safety record set
by Lago employees was the new low
severity rate of 34. Previous low was
set m 1957 when a severity rate of
36 was established. The severity rate
is calculated from a formula based
on actual days lost from disabling
injuries plus penalties charged for
permanent disabilities.

Priceless Tools
Every day, Lago employees take with them to job sites ten valuable
tools attached to two holders of extraordinary design. These tools -
strong, flexible, durable are fingers and hands.
Few workers ever think of their hands and fingers as tools but
they should.
A mechanic who attains skill is generally pretty fussy about his
tools. He keeps them in tip-top shape by taking good care of them. He
knows that a tool that isn't right for the job, or in poor condition,
wastes skills he has taken many years to develop. He knows, too, that
a tool in good condition plus skill equals better work. He is aware that
this combination is strongly on the side of safety.
What if our highly skilled mechanic had just one set of tools and
could never replace them? How would he act if he knew they'd last a
lifetime if kept in good condition? The answers are obvious. He'd
watch out for them every minute yes, every second.
How much difference would it make if everybody treated his hands
and fingers like that as though they were precious, irreplaceable
tools? Plenty. There wouldn't be anywhere near as many hand and
finger injuries as there are.
Let's look at the safety record in the United States. Last year 25
per cent of 1,900,000 disabling injuries were to fingers and hands. That
adds up to 470,000.
The record doesn't show how many fingers and hands were lost.
Unlike tools, lost fingers and hands are irreplaceable. Once gone, they
are gone for good.
Nearly all injuries to fingers and hands could have been prevented if
victims had just treated them as though they were precious, irreplace-
able tools. They just didn't keep their safety sense active. Keeping one's
hands and fingers out of trouble is easy enough. It doesn't take high-

Mrs. De Freitas says she'll probably never give up nursing entirely,

has two daughters. The elder, twenty, is a nurse in Brooklyn, New
York. The sixteen-year-old daughter is studying to be a chemist and
is going to school in Jamaica.

Through a chance drawing, Luis Werleman of Mech-

Lago twenty-five-year service watch. Because Mr. Werle-
man and Bernardus Ras of Process-LOF had identical
lengths of service, Nurse N. E. Santjes was asked to
select one of two identical watch boxes at the Jan. 3
watch presentation ceremonies. She was one of nine
honored for long Lago service that day.
When the box she selected was opened, the watch
inscribed with Mr. Werleman's name was disclosed. This
made Mr. Ras the 999th watch recipient and Mr. Werle-
man the 1000th.

Aruba Bats Identified

By U.S. Mammologist
The bats that inhabit Quadirikiri cave had an in-
teresting scientific visitor recently. He was Dr.
Richard Van Gelder of the American Museum of
Natural History in New York City. An expert on
mammals, Dr. Van Gelder stopped briefly at Aruba
last month after a thirteen-country tour of Central
and South America. His bat studies in Aruba, and in
Trinidad, were secondary to his main project the
study of skunks.
As there are no skunks on Aruba, Dr. Van Gelder
was interested in identifying bat species on the is-
land. He had previously stopped in Aruba before
starting his South American tour.
On the subject of Aruba's bats, he brought forth
interesting revelations of both a scientific and lay
nature. Dr. Van Gelder said the museum is interest-
ed in all mammals, but that bats are especially in-
teresting. "To begin with," he said, "bats are the
only true flying mammals. There are mammals that
glide but bats are the only ones that can fly. From
the evolution standpoint they are over sixty million
years old."
When asked to explain how bats are able to avoid
obstacles in pitch-black caves, the mammology ex-
pert said that the bats have the same system that
humans "invented" some sixty million years after
the bat evolved. "It's like the navy's sonar system.
The bats let loose a high-pitched skriek, much too
high to hear, and receive the echo of the shriek as it
bounces off obstacles. They can detect objects as
small as twelve-thousandths of an inch in diameter.
Bats can even avoid a system of wires that thin,"
he related.
He went on to say that humans think radar is
quite an advancement, but that the bat's complicat-
ed system is crammed into a package in a head less
than one-half-inch long. "We still need a pretty big
box for present-day radar and sonar systems," he
Dr. Van Gelder said he had found two distinct
bat species at Quadirikiri during his initial visit.'
'When you first walk in," he said, "you'll spot the
one species flying about. This is in the area of the
first and second chambers. This bat seems to be a
nectar feeder, or flower-pollen feeder. In the far
chambers of the cave is another kind of bat, an in-
sect eater."
In complete darkness, the insect eaters can detect
small insects as far away as fifteen feet with their
"sonar" system. The other species, the flower-pollen
feeders, are somewhat like bees. They feed off
flowers and spread pollen from one to the other.
A smile crossed Dr. Van Gelder's face when he
was asked if the time-worn phrase, "Blind as a

DURING A brief stop in Aruba recently, Dr. Richard
Van Gelder of the American Museum of Natural His-
tory collected several bat specimens from the Quadiri-
kiri cave. He had been to several South American coun-
tries where he obtained data on skunks.
DURANTE UN bishita cortico na Aruba recientemente,
Dr. Richard Van Gelder di American Museum of Natu-
ral History a colecta varies muestra di raton di anochi
for di cuebanan di Quadirikiri. El tabata na camina pa
varies paisnan Sur Americano pa obtene information
ariba mampurito.

Bat," was correct. "Not necessarily," he answered.
"Bats vary in how good their eyesight is. Some Old
World bats have very good eyesight. The ones in
Aruba have fairly poor eyesight. They can tell light
from dark but that's about all."
When told that the Papiamento phrase for bat is
"raton di anochi" (mouse of the night), Dr. Van
Gelder said that the bat isn't any more related to
the mouse than humans are. "This crops up in all
languages. In German the bat is called 'fleder-
maus,' flying mouse, but its closest relative is prob-
ably the tiny shrew." He added that bats evolved
from that family line about the same time the
monkey line branched off from the shrews. As we
look back on evolution we see that bats are a group
that arose very early, he said, a group that has be-

The only bats that bite, he went on, are the Vam-
pires which do not exist in Aruba. This species is a
hazard in Trinidad where it spreads rabies to both
man and animal.

In Caribbean

Former Businessman

Drops Conventional

Way of Life for Sea
Trim of line with strong, tall masts
was the sixty-eight foot, two-masted
fisherman's schooner that slipped
silently into Oranjestad Harbor last
October Behind the weathered
yacht, the Valerie Queen, lay months
at sea and a journey of several
thousand miles
Ahead for the master of the Valerie
Queen lay the unpredictable, un-
mapped future. The sailor, Don Ste-
wart, who once called San Francisco
home, is determined to make Carib-
bean trade routes his highways and
any friendly port his home
His stop at Aruta was to have
been a short layover enroute to Anti-
gua. Eaily last month he and the
Valerie Queen were still quite com-
fortably settled at a berth alongside
the Ball Restaurant.
Luck had appeared to have scur-
ried away when the boat first arriv-
ed in Aruba There were no more
charter passengers to help pay for
ship's stores The last had departed
when the Valerie Queen had glided
into a Colombian port
The future of ship and master may
have looked dim to a sun glass clad
visitor upon inspecting the schooner
shortly after it arrived in Aruba
but is was still veiy bright to Mr.
Stewart There were charters avail-
able in Aruba, he felt, so hand-
drawn posters had been distributed to
advertise his offerings And if bus-
iness didn't develop other ports
lof call existed. There were tourists
all over the Caribbean
It's difficult to squelch such dogged
Gave Up Comforts
What makes a man give up the
conventional life of a businessman,
luxurious living, friends' AMi Sto-
wart feels he didn't lose a thing "I
gained," he said He was refelling to
his new way of life where he goes
whee heh pleases, when he pleases
To him conformity and nman-killing
pace aie the mundane As a product
designer six years ago he was fauly
successful, dove a new car every
year, lived in comfort, enjoyed
theater and good cuisine It wasn't
enough to smother the call of the
sea, however.
It was about that time that he
found the Valerie Queen, He wasn't
a sailor then but he was willmin to
learn. Aftei an initial outlay of
$10,000 and many thousands later to
fit the vessel with 3500 square feet
of new canvass and make her sea-

When ie left Colombia lhe was
alone except for his Colomlbian deck
hand Since it takes four hands to
run the Valerie Queen undei all hei

Mr. Stewart doesn't know how long
he'll remain in the charter business
in the Caribbean That depends again
on his luck If he can continue to
sign up charter groups, all well and
good If not, he'll head for other seas

Here Are Three Ocean Monsters That 'Didn't Get Away'

Aruba fishermen, using both speargun and line,
appear to be disproving the adage that there are
bigger fish in the ocean than have ever been
caught. The adage may still hold true, but by the
looks of the monster sea snake, grouper and mar-
]n that flank these words, let's hope they don't
have too many big brothers cruising in the shal-
lows. Actually, with the exception of the sea
snake the other two are not harmful to man.


\1HAT IS it? Some say it's a
moray eel while others claim it's a
sra snake. The five-foot monster
was speared by Benjamin Peterson
of Acid & Edeleanu near the reef
off the island's south shore in fairly
shallow water.
KIKO E ta? Algun hende ta bisa
cu ta un congla y otro cu ta un
colebra di lamar. E nonstruo di
cinco pia a worde harpuna door di
Benjamin Peterson di Acid & Edele-
anu cerca di rft pa zuid di e isla.

HERE'S A big one that didn't get away. This 528-
pound grouper was speared off Colorado Point by, left
to right. Rosendo Colina, Eddy Bislik and Buchi Muyale.
ESAKI TA un cu no a logra scapa. E mero di 528 liber
a worde captiura cu flecha banda di Punta Colorado pa
Rosenda Colina, Eddy Bislik y Buchi Muyale.

Algun piscador di Aruba, usando harpoen y linja,
parce ta disproba e dicho bieuw cu tin pisca mas
grand den lamar cu nan a yega di coi. Podiser esey
ainda ta berdad, pero segun aparencia e monstru-
oso conglA, djoekvis y balahia den e portretnan aki,
nos por bien spera cu nan no tin ruman mas grand
ta cruza den e awanan aki. En efecto, cu excepcion
di e congli, e otro dosnan nunca ta conoci di ta
danjo na hende.

Skin Divers Land Giant Grouper

After Battle Off Colorado Point
A giant grouper whose bulk far exceeded the
total weight of its three assailants was speared
recently off Colorado Point and subdued after
a fieht lasting twenty minutes.
The three marksmen were Rosendo Colina,
machinist A in Mechanical-Machinist, and Eddy
Bislik and Buchi Muyale. First shot, and prob-
ably the fatal one, was fired by Mr. Bislik who
stalked the denizen in thirty feet of water. His
two companions came to his aid and hit the
beast with two more shafts from their spear-
When brought to shore and weighed the
grouper tipped the scales at 528 pounds.

Un gigantesco mero, di cual su peso ta hopi
mas cu peso combine di su tres atacador, a
worde flecha recientemente na Punta Colorado.
A tuma e piscadornan binti minuut pa domina
e mero.
E tres tiradornan tabata Rosendo Colina,
machinist A na departamento Mechanical-Mach-
inist, Eddy Bislik y Buchi Muyale. Sr. Bislik a
tira e promer flecha, y probablemente esun
fatal, mientras e tabata sigi e pisca den trinta
pia di awa. Su dos companjero a dun6 asitencia
y a lombra e mero dos flecha mas cu nan spear-
gun. Ora nan a trece e pisca riba tera, e mero a
pisa 528 liber. Su largura ta mas o menos seis
pia y mei di su cabez te pia.

AFTER A battle that lasted an hour,
T. Wouters and N. Geerman, on top
of truck, landed this huge marlin
while line fishing off Colorado Point.
The fish measured nearly seven feet.
DESPUES DI un lucha cu a dura un
ora, T. Wouters y N. Geerman, ariba e
truck, a capture e balahii grand aki

Island-Wide Basketball

Competition Underway

On Sport Park Court
Familiar sounds of basketball
court action rolled over Lago Sport
Park Jan. 15 when the 1962 Island-
Wide Basketball Competition start-
ed. Competing on the courts were
the class A teams of Aruba Juniors
and N.W.I. Stars and the girls teams
of Valiant and Aruba Juniors. In the
men's contest, N.W.I. Stars ball-
players ended court action ten points
ahead of the Aruba Juniors. Final
score was 41 to 31.
Neither girl's team scored more
than ten points. Aruba Juniors de-
feated Valiant 9 to 8 in the low-
scoring contest.
Five class A teams and six class B
teams are competing as well as four
teams representing girl basketbal-
lers. Six games have been played in-
cluding the opener. For the remain-
der of the month-long competition,
games will be played Jan. 29 and 31
and Feb. 2, 5, 7, 9, 12, 14 and 16. Two
contests will be played each night,
the first scheduled to start at 7:30.
Class A teams competing are Aruba
Juniors, N.W.I. Stars, Don Bosco,
Noord Central and Plymouth. Class
B teams are Plymouth, Boca Chica,
RCA, Commandersbaai, Noord Cen-

Jersey Standard Sets

Records in Producing,

Refining, Sales in 1961
Worldwide volumes of product
sales, production of crude oil and
refinery crude runs for 1961 were
the highest in Jersey Standard's
history, and earnings improved for
the third consecutive year, M. J.
Rathbone, president of Standard Oil
Company (New Jersey) said recent-
ly in a year-end review and outlook.
Mr. Rathbone also expressed con-
fidence and optimism in regard to
the Jersey earnings outlook, point-
ting out that the company plans
capital expenditures in 1962 of nearly
$1,200 million. He noted that this
program would probably establish a
new company record, exceeding the
$1,131 million spent by Jersey in
"Very substantial levels of capital
investment are constantly needed to
maintain the efficiency of operations
and for modern facilities in support
of expanding markets for products,"
Mr. Rathbone said.
"Moreover, by these expenditures,
we will improve the quality and
performance of our existing prod-
ucts, provide for the entry of Jersey
affiliates into new markets, and ex-
