New Year's Greetings
The year 1963 has almost turn-
ed its last page. When it does,
history will acknowledge this
year as another in the great pro-
gless of man Employees and
their families have contributed to
the economic and social growth
of Ai ba. It is my sincere wish
that health and happiness
throughout 1964 enable all ot you
to further the development of a
strong and prosperous Aruba.
It is the steadfast desne of
Lago, as it always has been, to
contribute its share as a corpo-
late citizen to the well being of
the community. Lago, in the
strength of its operation as deter-
mined by the cooperation and un-
derstanding of its employees and
community fi ends, will continue
its determined efforts to remain
one of the world's great refineries.
I hope the new year will bring
measures of accomplishment to
all of us, and that this accom-
plishment will bear future bene-
fit to Aruba and its wonderful

Effective Jan. 1, 1964, two and three-wheel scooters and motor bikes
will not be allowed inside the refinery. Lago has replaced its entire
scooter fleet with small sedans and quarter-ton pickups. The invest-

company automotive equipment.

HRH Prince Bernhard

The Aruba Chemical Industries and the Antilles Chemical
Company were inaugurated Dec. 10 by HRH Prince Bernhard
of the Netherlands, who travelled to Aruba expressly to partici-
pate in the ceremonies. The program was held in the large stor-
age building adjacent to the Barcadera wharf. The bagging and
conveyor system was put into motion as an inaugural gesture
by HRH Prince Bernhard. Speakers, all of whom lauded the
people and government of Aruba and the investment and pro-
duction companies, cited the development of the Barcadera com-
plex as the result of pooling of private capital from several
nations of the free world.
The Antilles Chemical Company provides a basic raw material,
ammonia, for the manufacture of nitrogen fertilizer. Two-thirds
of its production will be consumed by the Aruba Chemical In-
dustries and the rest will be exported to other countries in the
Caribbean. The Aruba Chemical Industries manufactures nitric
