I. R. Department Wins

Off-the-Job Safety

Contest With '0' Rate
Industrial Relations Department
is the winner in Lago's 1964 Off-
the-Job Safety Contest. With a
"0" frequency rate throughout
1964, IR has the lowest frequency
of the competing umts and has log-
ged the greatest improvement over
its 1963 rate.
The Off-the-Job Safety Contest
was ended Sept. 30 because of the
recent re-organization of many de-
partments, which made it impracti-
cal to continue the contest through
the end of the year.
In addition to Industrial Relations,
extra awards will also be presented
to the following departments/units
which have shown an improvement
of twenty-five per cent or more over
their 1963 rate:
1. Executive Office
2. Marine Department
3. Mechanical-Storehouse
4. Medical Department
5. Process-LOF/Acid & Edeleanu

COL Adjustment Split Between General

Wage Increase and Lump Sum Payment
Covered employees will get a four per cent boost in wages effective
Dec. 3, 1964, and a cost of living adjustment lump sum payment
Dec. 17.
This was an agreement reached Nov. 6 between IOWUA and
management concerning the cost of living adjustment for the year
beginning Dec. 3, 1964, and ending Dec. 2, 1965.
This cost of living adjustment payment is based on the latest Neth-
erlands Antillian cost of living index for Aruba.

J. Hill, W. R. Moore, W. G. Spitzer,

J. E. Kirwin Join Annuitant Ranks
Three Lago employees are joining the annuitant ranks within the
next few days. Another one left Aruba Oct. 27, for subsequent retire-
ment. These men are James Hill of Process-Oil Movements Division,
William R. Moore of Process-Utilities, Walter G. Spitzer of Plant Pro-
tection Division and James E. Kirwin of Technical-Laboratories.

Mr. Hill was originally employed
with the Anglo American Oil Com-
pany in England, May 27, 1937, be-
fore he became a member of Esso
Transportation Company's lake fleet
in March, 1940. He joined Lago in
November, 1954, as tugmaster in the
former Marine Department, now
part of the Process Department-Oil
Movements Division. He is presently
a harbor expediter and his service
totals twenty-seven years.
Mr. Moore has spent his entire
twenty-six-year service in the Proc-
ess Department. His starting date is

J. Hill

J. E. Kirwin

Dec. 14, 1948. His first assignment
was apprentice operator IV in Light
Oils Finishing. He then transferred
to the powerhouse as an assistant
operator. He subsequently moved up
to assistant shift foreman II, assis-
tant shift foreman I. Before he re-
tired Oct. 27, he had worked as shift
foreman. He was promoted to this
job in March, 1958.
Mr. Spitzer started as a high
school teacher and ended his nine-
teen-year employ as police chief.
His service began Dec. 15, 1945. Fol-
lowing his teaching assignment he
transferred to Technical Depart-

ment-Lab. No. 3, as job training in-
structor in October, 1948. He trans-
ferred to the Industrial Relations
Department in July, 1952, as person-
nel assistant A. His title was later
changed to supervisory training co-
ordinator. His career with the Lago
Police began in 1953 as assistant
police chief. He was promoted to
police chief in August, 1957.
Mr. Kirwin has spent his entire
eighteen years of service in the
Technical Department. He has pri-
marily been concerned with inspec-
tion and material testing work and
has spent the majority of his Lago
years in this phase of the work. He
was employed Aug. 26, 1946, as an
equipment inspector B in the Tech-
nical Department's Equipment In-
spection Section. He later became
an equipment inspector A, then sen-
ior engineer. At the latter position,
he transferred to Technical-Labora-
tories in August, 1962, at which time
the material testing and related
functions were also transferred to
the laboratories. Mr. Kirwin will
leave Lago as technologist. He was
promoted to this job in June, 1963.

Magic: In Metal and Thought
The workings of giant pieces of equipment such as can be found in
an oil refinery have always had a magic-like appeal to all our fan-
tasies. One of the opportunities which Lago makes available to the
island's population as well as to visitors is a tour of this industrial
However, it is more than just the entertainment motive that in-
spires the continuance of these tours. The educational aspects, for
example, provide far-reaching areas of consideration in such an under-
Each year, more than 2500 students from the elementary school
level through and beyond the college level are made aware to some
degree of the involvement of men and machinery necessary to operate
a refinery the size of Lago. Many of these students may one day elect
to follow engineering or other technical pursuits that could subse-
quently find them being employed here.
Many others, who will elect different roads, perhaps unrelated to
the petroleum industry, will nevertheless be leaders in the community
in their chosen fields of endeavor doctors, lawyers, writers, mer-
chants and in that way continue to be affected by the functions
performed by the equipment and many of their needs will be served
by the products produced.
In one small way, these tours offer an opportunity to help persons
connected with the Aruban economic community, in whatever small
measure, to become aware of some aspects of the island's place in the
larger world picture. Lago's products, for example, reach more than
eighty markets world-wide, many with vastly different cultures and
ways of life.
In many respects Lago has been so closely linked to the island's
progress these last thirty-five years that Lago history, very much a
part of the tour discourse, affords insights into the island's develop-
ment and, even, future expectations. It is this kind of self knowledge
that helps make better citizens and community members of us all.

E trahamento di machinnan grand tal como por worde encontrA den
un refineria di azeta semper ta eherce un atraccion magico ariba nos

Cada anja, mas cu 2500 studiante for di lagere school te colegio, ta

concentrating on his new job in Holland a young wife with two
children on a plane to Holland a father accompanying his daugh-
ter to Curaqao. These seemingly unrelated situations occurring thous-
ands of miles apart are affecting the lives of grandfather, grand-
mother, father, mother, wife, husband, children, grandchildren and
the pet of the same family.
This chain of events started when Mathias J. Maduro left for Hol-
land Sept. 27, to accept a job with Verolme's Shipyard under the Lago
sponsored re-settlement and employment program.
Mr. Maduro is the second employee to take advantage of the re-
settlement program. His family, however, is the first one to be re-
Mr. Maduro, like dozens of other young men who are emigrating to
Holland, is showing the pioneering spirit of his grandfather who left
Aruba a half century ago to toil in the cane-fields of Cuba or to try
his luck in the United States. There are some differences, however,
between the emigrant of today and his grandfather.
Unlike the emigrant of bygone days, the emigrant of today is better
prepared industrially, that is. Mr. Maduro, for example, is a 1950
graduate of the Lago Vocational School and has over fourteen years
of industrial experience in the Boilermaker, as well as the Machinist
Craft. He has been a first class machinist for five years.
Another important difference is that potential emigrants of the
1920's would not marry until they returned to Aruba. The emigrant
of 1964 can take along his family, as did Mr. Maduro.
By tradition Arubans have close family ties. In the old days it was
a matter of course that the young couple would settle in the neigh-
borhood of the wife's parents. The wife's parents would reserve a plot
in the cunucu where the couple could start building their home.
The Maduro's, however, suppressed all emotion, broke all tradition,
and considered the resettlement program, in light of what is best for
the family, and the children. They realized, among other advantages.
the educational opportunities that would be available in Holland for
Mr. Maduro, as well as for the children. After long and serious dis-
cussions they decided for the re-settlement program.
Mrs. Francisca Maduro left Aruba Nov. 1, together with two of her
children, Suzie and Jozef, to join her husband. A third child, Roland,
three years old, had gone with his father in September. The father

S Spheroids Doomed

In Advent of New

Floating Roof Tanks
Typical landmarks of Lago ref-
inery are rapidly vanishing. The
latest to go are the spheroids which
gave unique shape to the skyline on
the eastern part of the refinery for
over twenty-seven years.
High maintenance costs, primarily,
have dictated the dismantling of the
spheroids. In many cases it proved
more economical to replace a spher-
oid than to enter into major repairs.
The spheroids require maintenance
about every five years, whereas the
replacement floating roof tanks re-
quire little more than minor on-
stream inspection and repairs for at
least ten years.
Evaporation Loss
In addition to the high mainten-
ance costs, evaporation loss was
another factor which prompted the
spheroid replacement program. Com-
pared with floating roof tanks, eva-
poration losses for the seventeen
spheroids in service in 1961 amount-
ed to 11,580 barrels. Expressed in
terms of dollars, this meant an an-
nual loss of Fls. 26,000.
Prior to 1961, the spheroids were
replaced as they reached conditions
beyond economical repair. In 1961,
however, conditions found in several
spheroids indicated that corrosion
was progressing more rapidly than
previously anticipated. At this time,
a formal spheroid replacement pro-
gram was initiated which was to
determine the fate of seventeen
spheroids constructed in 1938 and
In the first three phases of the
replacement program, which ran
from 1961 to 1963, eleven spheroids
were dismantled and replaced with
floating roof tanks. The fourth and
last phase of the program is pre-
sently underway and calls for the
replacement of the remaining six

One Spheroid Remains
The remaining spheroids are all
located east of the road between
Gate Five and Four. Tank No. 710
was the first one to be dismantled
under the present phase of the pro-
gram. It has not definitely been es-
tablished exactly when the other
five tanks will be dismantled. The
condition of the tanks at the time
of the next inspection will deter-
mine when they will be replaced.
At least one spheroid will be re-
placed by another spheroid. This
spheroid will be used for storing iso-
pentane. Isopentane, a high vapor
pressure product, can only be stor-
ed under pressure; such storage is
only possible in spheroids or tanks
of similar construction. Lago's
spheroids in their twenty-seven-year
history have stored isopentane, mo-
tor gasoline, special naphthas and
wide cut jet fuels.
Thus, in the vast eastern tank-
farm area, known as the spheroid
field, a spheroid will remain among
the floating roof tanks as if a re-
minder of how the name of the area
was derived.

Groundwork Laid for Aruba National Park

On Aug. 25, 1963, Jose Geerman, chief of the government office
building in San Nicolas, visited Rooi Taki, an area just to the east of
Frenchman's Pass. A nature enthusiast by avocation, Mr. Geerman
looked about him and considered what a wonderful location this would

be for a wildlife preserve.
The following day he wrote a let-
ter to the Bestuurscollege (Admin-
istrative Council), inviting them to
look at the area for a possible fu-
ture project to preserve Aruban ani-
mal and plant life and which could
serve as another tourist attraction.
He also expressed a willingness to
oversee the effort. Two months
later the council visited the location.
agreed the project was worthwhile
and in February of this year the
first work began.
"It's a long range project," states
Mr. Geerman, "and it will take about
two years before it can be consider-
ed in a finished state, though a pro-
ject like this is never really finish-

pulation in the area, twelve parrots
have been brought over from Bo-
naire and are being cared for. In
the future, they will be turned loose.
It is also the intention to install
bird-cages at this place with birds
from all over the world as an ad-
ditional attraction for tourists and
the population of Aruba.
Trees On Hand
Mr. Geerman, making a plea for
consideration of nature noted that
"Since the government is doing its
utmost to protect and preserve the
flora and fauna of Aruba, it is hop-
ed that the population will cooperate
with this effort and will not cut
down trees unnecessarily and kill oft
the wild life that yet remains on
the island."
This piece of terrain has trees
which are slowly disappearing from
the island. There are such trees as:
dabaruida, mata pisca, shimaruku,
watapana, sija, juana, huliba, cala-
bas, mangle blanco, sisal, and Way-
acka. Also found in this area are
trees slowly disappearing from
Aruba, such as, kibra hacha, maku-
bari, kamari, quedebeshi, palu di
Boneiro, kifiti, kurahout, kawara di
Aruba, and zjiron.
Other trees such as palu di boon-
chi, coconut trees, flamboyan, al-
garroba, and others, will also be
planted on this site to fill up empty

took along this son to facilitate the
trip for Mrs. Maduro, who other-
wise would have had to travel with
three children. Also accompanying
Mrs. Maduro, but only to Curacao,
was her father, Alesio Geerman, who
chose this way of postponing the
farewell for a couple of hours.
For Mrs. Maduro it was her first
trip to Europe. She was born in
Aruba and has lived here all her
life, except for a vacation in Colom-
bia some years ago.
The five weeks in which Mrs. Ma-
duro was separated from her hus-
band were particularly trying. The
children missed their father. Six-
year-old Suzie would not believe that
her father was not coming back and
that she too was going to Holland.
On several occasions she asked her
mother when papa was coming back
and if grandma and grandpa were

Preparing for the trip was a
rather unnerving experience for
Mrs. Maduro. There was the extra
shopping that had to be done; the
trips to Oranjestad to prepare the
necessary documents. Fortunately
she did not have to woriy about
reservations for the trip; that was
all handled by Lago's Industrial Re-
lations Department.
During all these preparations Mrs.
Maduro's thoughts were constantly
with her husband and son in Hol-
land. She was going over the dis-
cussions she had with her husband.
"It is hard for me to leave Aruba
where I was born and reared," she
said. "I will miss our family, friends
and our Aruba home. "But," she con-

Family First Aid Kit Is First

Must To Relieve Suffering
(First in a series)
Through the years, numerous stories have been made public des-
cribing how a knowledge of first aid resulted in saving a life or, at
least, reducing the painful and long-range effects of a home accident.
Lago safety statistics tell us that more mishaps occur in the home
than the combined total of highway and on-job injuries.
Putting these two pieces of in-

formation together, one becomes
aware that the housewife or family
member with at least a superficial
knowledge of first aid methods is
better able to serve loved ones when
an emergency arises.
To begin with, a working know-
ledge of first aid helps develop a
safety consciousness which in itself
is a deterrent to accidents. At the
same time, it assures better imme-
diate care of the injured which could
save a life, prevent crippling, lessen
suffering and reduce ultimate med-
ical expense.
When a home accident involves a

There is still opportunity to enroll

loved one, as most do, the emotional
reaction on the part of others is in
itself often a stumbling block to the
victim receiving the best immediate
and temporary care until the doctor
arrives. Failure to keep oneself un-
der control can make a serious si-
tuation worse or turn a not so ser-
ious situation into a serious one. It
is a must to remain calm and
other rules of thumb are:
Be deliberate and take time.
Encourage the victim.
Avoid necessary handling or mov-
ing of injured persons, particularly
if the injuries are the result of a
Keep victim lying down
Be sure that when the doctor is
called that the nature of the acci-
dent is calmly explained to him.
Unless one considers that the
shocking rate of home accidents are
merely numbers for others to pon-
der, it is a must that every home
have some kind of first aid kit.
These kits can be simple or elabor-
ate depending on family inclination,
numbers and previous experience.
