Mr. Porter joined Lago Feb 14,
1956. as an engineer in TSD-Engin-

He came to Lago from the Wood

years of Lago service He started as

salute of Big Charlie. He started
with Lago June 25, 1929, in the Lago
Police Department also but went to
the Pressure Stills in 1931. After
working in the Acid Plant, Dining
Hall, Gas Plant and TSD-Engineer-
ing, Mr. Hazel made his permanent
move to the Mechanical Department.
Since that time he has been most-
ly engaged in stevedore work. He
vividly recalls the vast amount of
muscle power needed to unload ships
in the early days. It would take two
to three days to unload a thousand
tons of cement. Every bag had to be
handled by hand. Sulphur unloading
was even more unpleasant. It was
tedious, hot work with sticky sulphur
clogging every pore Today, the
stevedore's job is largely mechanized.
"Big Charlie has helped move a lot
of equipment and pipe off ships in
his day," Mr. Proterra said. "He had
a hand in moving about all of the
pipe and equipment that make up
the refinery." Mr. Hazel has been a
corporal A since December, 1949.

Continuing on to Mr. Dirks, Mr.
Proteria said, "I don't know exactly
why, but Mr. Dirks is called Ama-

1939, Mr. Dirks has been engaged in
cleanout work in Mechanical-Yard.
He joined Lago March 15, 1930, as
a sample boy in TSD-Laboratories
then worked for a while as a yard
laborer. He was assigned to cleanout
work in the Pressure Stills in July,
1939. Mr. Dirks well remembers the
arduous task of cleaning out the
coke from those stills. Cooking was
heavy then but with Lago's new
vertical furnaces the job has been
made much less arduous. Mr Dirks
became a still cleaner A in 1944 and
was named a cleanout corporal in
The career of Mr. White was re-
viewed by Comptroller W. T. Murphy.
He related that Mr. White had start-

the United States, and specifically

the Lago Community Schools to non-

need for these men is imperative both
to the rise of the chemical complex

company had received many requests
for school admission, but the large
number of Seroe Colorado pupils
made it impossible to comply.
For non-Seroe Colorado residents,
there will be a charge of one hund-
red and twenty dollars a month, ap-
proximately Fls. 2000 for the nine-
month school year, for students in
grades 1 through 12. For kinder-
garten students the charge will be
sixty dollars a month, or approxi-
mately Fls. 1000 for nine months.
These charges represent the present
cost to the company for each stud-
ent enrolled.
Tuition charges, which are to be
prepaid monthly, will include text

room materials, science laboratory

NAMED SUGGESTER of the January CYI-of-the-Month was J. A. Dutier,
operator in Process.Light Oils Finishing. He was awarded Fls. 470 for
his suggestion to reuse salt water from coolers and surface condensers in
acid coolers at the Acid and Edeleanu Plants.

A child whose fifth birthday falls
on or before Jan. 1 of the current
school year may enroll in kinder-
garten at the opening of the fall
term. A child whose sixth birthday
falls on or before Jan. 1 of the cur-
rent school year may enroll in the
first grade. It is recommended that
beginning students start with kin-
dergarten, but it is not compulsory.
For grades 2 through 12, a satis-
factory record of scholastic achieve-
ment from a previous school may be
acceptable. Appropriate tests of
achievement and aptitude may be
required as a prerequisite for admis-
sion. A non-refundable fee of ten
dollars will be required from non-
residents of Seroe Colorado before
the evaluation of a student's previous
school record. If the student is ad-
mitted, this fee will be deducted from
his tuition charge.
A certificate of good health from
an island physician will be required
for admission. Annual eye and ear
examinations are provided for all
students by Lago's Medical Depart-
ment without charge, and Lago med-
ical facilities will be available on an
emergency basis in the event of in-
jury during the school day.

2 ARUBA ESSO NEWS February 24, 1962

Printed by the Aruba Drukker N.V., Neth. Ant.

In Safety-United We Stand
To combat off-the-job accidents, everyone in the community must
actively participate in Lago's year-long accident prevention program.
Although the company is expressly interested in the safety of em-
ployees and family members while they are in the home or on the
sports fields, Lago hopes that its off-the-job accident prevention pro-
gram will spread throughout Aruba.
In many instances, everyone must be attentive to good safety habits
so that accidents in the home, on the highways, beaches and sports
areas can be eliminated. The community can not wholly benefit from
an accident prevention program of this kind if some back safety and
others ignore it. A careless driver, for example, can involve a safe one
in a highway mishap. A safety-conscious child may step on a sharp
object left by a careless adult.
Every year in Aruba hundreds upon hundreds of children and adults
are injured in accidents that could have been prevented. There is noth-
ing supernatural about accidents. Except for acts of God such as
hurricanes, lightning, rain storms and the like, practically every acci-
dent can be traced to a cause that could have been eliminated.
Let's suppose that a Lago employee is working in his home work-
shop. The power tool he is using has a ground wire incorporated in
the power cord. But he has neglected to install the proper electrical
outlet; instead, he has removed the ground connector from the cord.
While standing on damp concrete he plugs in the tool and receives a
near-fatal shock when he activates the power. Unwittingly, he be-
comes the ground connection.
Would you call this a supernatural force at work? Hardly. The man,
a perfectly safe worker while on the job, was injured through his own
neglectfulness. It wasn't an act of God. And the man naturally, he's
learned a lesson. In this case it was a painful lesson and could have
been his last.
Soon, members of Lago's Off-the-Job Safety Speakers Bureau will
bring original safety messages and advice to one and all. Attend meet-
ings and pay careful attention to what these community leaders have
to say. There undoubtedly will be information in these talks that can
help you live in greater safety. You may learn a lifesaving lesson.
These volunteer safety workers have but one goal to make Aruba a
safer place in which to enjoy a full and fruitful life.

pleadonan y miembronan di familiar mientras nan ta na cas of ariba

cidente pafor di trabao, lo plama over di henter Aruba.
Den hopi instancia, tur hende mester pone atencion na bon costum-
bernan di seguridad asina cu accidentenan na cas, ariba camina grand,
na lamar y ariba terreno di deported, por word elimina. Comunidad no
por beneficia plenamente di un program di prevention di accident di

horcan, lamper, yobida y cosnan per estilo, casi tur accident por worde
atribui na un causa cu por a worde prevent.
Laga nos supone cu un empleado di Lago ta traha den su shop na
cas. E aparato di coriente cu el ta usa tin un waya di ground incor-

Six Boy, Sea Scouts 'Run'

Lago Feb. 5

The refinery was in good hands Feb. 5. That's
the day six honor scouts from Seroe Colorado "ran"
Lago in observance of a custom that had its be-
ginnings in Aruba eighteen years ago.
Three honor Boy Scouts and three honor Sea
Scouts were chosen to assume honorary executive
positions as a highlight of Scout Week which was
held in the community from Feb. 4 through Feb. 10.
Chosen for the honors were Boy Scouts Barney
Ellis Jr., Kenneth Chapman and Bruce Massey, and
Sea Scouts Robert Holcolmb, Peter Lewis and
Steven Opdyke.
The six were picked up at the start of the work
day at their homes by the executives they were to
replace. Scout Ellis was assigned to General Serv-
ices superintendent, Scout Chapman to Industrial
Relations Department manager, Scout Massey to
Mechanical Department superintendent, Scout Hol-
colmb to refinery general manager, Scout Lewis to
Process Department superintendent and Scout Op-
dyke to Marine Department manager.
