    R .Lago, Community Organizations Rebuild

    And Refurnish Home Destroyed by Fire


    LAGO CONTRIBUTED building supplies, technical
    assistance and furniture. Construction materials cost
    approximately Fls. 3600.
    a, kl sc im -i *.*,


    Fire reduced the home of Mrs.
    Maria Jack to ashes last Septem-
    ber. It also destroyed furniture
    and belongings of Mrs. Jack and
    five children. None was injured,
    fortunately, the family was out of
    the house when the fire started.
    The complete destruction left
    them with only the clothes they
    wore.
    Community organizations wast-
    ed no time in assisting the troubl-
    ed family. Leading the movement
    to aid was the Sociedad Bolivari-
    ana women's section and its chair-
    man, Mrs. A. Walfenzao. The dis-
    placed family was provided im-
    mediate assistance. Community
    spirit to assist others in need act-
    ed as a catalyst in turning
    thoughts into actions. Money, la-
    bor, knowledge and materials were
    directed toward providing a re-
    placement house.
    Two dozen organizations and in-
    dividuals made cash and material
    donations to the effort to provide
    a new dwelling for the family.
    Lago, the Aruba Construction
    Company and Elmar indicated
    their willingness to assist Mrs.
    Walfenzao's committee, and Nov.
    18 construction of a new home
    was begun. Little more than three
    months later, Jan. 25, the house
    was completed and presented to
    Mrs. Jack by Mrs. Walfenzao.
    The house has four bedrooms, a
    bathroom, and a living room sep-
    arated from the kitchen by a four-
    foot room divider. The dwelling
    was designed by W. J. van den
    Heuvel of Lago's Technical De-
    partment. All construction mat-
    erials were donated by Lago, and
    the Aruba Construction Comp-
    any's fee for building the home
    was much less than its normal
    charge would be for like construc-
    tion. Electrical installation work
    was done by Elmar without
    charge, and volunteers of Sava-
    neta Marines painted the home.

    Of Lago


    Help Maintain The World's
    Each day over 400,000 barrels of crude roars through the maze of
    pipelines into Lago. Its first stop is the tank farm. Each day, also,
    equivalent barrels of products are pumped aboard the numerous tan-
    kers whose destinations are the more than eighty locations world-wide.
    These industrial complexes continue to function and homes are heated,
    cars go, planes fly and tractors pull ------ -----

    and products approaches twenty mil- wide cut jet fuel. Kerosene, kero-
    lion barrels. tvne jet fuels, gas oils and diesel


    As can be imagined, the invest-
    ment in a tank farm of Lago's size
    and capacity is enormous and is
    about three guilders a barrel of ca-
    pacity or about sixty million guil-
    ders.
    To protect this investment and to
    keep the tank farm operating smooth-
    ly and efficiently around the clock,
    some 200 men are required. This in-
    cludes tank operation, maintenance
    and repair, the pipelines leading to
    and from the tanks, the roads in the
    area and the pump house personnel
    who regulate the flow of crude and
    products both in and out of the great
    metal containers.
    The tanks themselves are of vary-
    ing sizes and geometric shapes, with
    each group of tanks designed for
    specific functions and products
    Crude and heavy products, such
    as fuel oil, are stored primarily in
    the cone-roof tanks which are paint-
    ed black to absorb the sun's rays.
    They can be easily recognized by an
    aluminum ring painted around the
    top. The lighter products, such as
    butane, are stored in football-shaped
    vessels.


    fuels are kept in aluminum colored
    and white cone-roof tanks
    The lightest product in the tank
    farm is propane, kept in horizontal
    cylinders, while the heaviest in fuel
    oil
    Numerous problems arise in the
    normal course of operating a tank
    farm and the responsibility for deal-
    ing with these situations is handled
    by the Process Department.
    The Mechanical Department per-
    forms maintenance and repairs
    Safety is of major concern in the
    tank farm, as it is throughout Lago.
    In the tank farm, though, as a result
    of leakage, an ever-present problem,
    combustible products can be exposed
    to sparks or static electricity. Of
    course, as a precaution, safety and
    fire-fighting features are built into
    the tanks.
    Aruba's corrosive atmosphere pre-
    sents the greatest hazard to the
    tanks and accounts for the extensive
    maintenance each tank requires. A
    similar tank in a location like Ari-
    zona, with low humidity and no salt
    spray, could last indefinitely with

    Whereas the spheroids were a con-
    stant source of maintenance head-

    tanks are a major improvement. The
    spheroids require maintenance about

    Aside from the vast spheroid re-
