Premium Deduction Explained For

Old Age and Widow-Orphan Insurance
The Netherlands Antilles Government has enacted legislation
introducing a compulsory Widow and Orphan Insurance effective
Jan. 1, 1966. The tax rate on this insurance has been established
at one per cent (1% ) of earnings on a maximum of Fls. 6,000
per year. One-half per cent ('2I' ) is to be paid by the employee

LAGO WAS host recently to E.J. Alofs who is employed by

nection with prospects for U.S. business to the Antilles.

and one-half per cent (I ,) by
the company. The law also re-
quires that the employee's share
of the premium be withheld by
the company and paid to the
Government Social Insurance
Bank together with the em-
ployee's premium on the Gov-
ernment Old Age Insurance,
which is presently 112%.
In compliance with the stipu-

lations of the law, the Comptrol-
ler's Department will deduct 2%
of each employee's earnings on
a maximum of Fls. 6,000. De-
ductions will be made in equal
monthly amounts of not more
than Fls. 10 to cover the em-
ployee's share of General Old

S. The Best Teacher

Personal experience is a prized possession and a valuable asset.
We learn best by doing.
With a new year in front of us, now is a good time to take
stock of what has been accomplished and learned in the old year.
Most of us point with pride to the fact that we have 10 or 15
years in a particular job. Rightly so. Experience cannot be pur-
chased. It's a personal thing.
But because experience is so personal, what we do with it is f
also up to each one of us. It's fine to say one has 15 years ex-
perience in a particular job. However, we must continue to ana- 4
lyze where we've been and where we intend to go. Otherwise, we
might merely have one year's experience 15 times.
This same process of looking where you've been to deter-
mine where you're going applies both on and off the job. Many DEBRA BISLIP displays the ta

Mighty Popular Poncho Wins Crown

From King Paul in Calypsonian Contest
"I challenged King Paul two years ago", said the Mighty Pop-
ular Poncho. "It's time I get that crown".
"Ah going to beat King Paul. He's going to get licks tonight,"
boasted Lord Boksu.
"Down with King Paul", chanted the Mighty Stingaray.
These were some of the com-

ments before the calypsonian
contest at the Lago Sport Park
last week. But the Mighty Pop-
ular Poncho was the only one
who made good his boast to be-
come Aruba's 1966 Calypso
King. He dethroned King Paul
who had the crown for the past
two years.
King Paul had to be satisfied
with second place. Besides being
viciously attacked by some of
the calyp.-onians, King Paul ai-
3o had Etrong competition from
Young Quicksilver. Quicksilver
placed third place with the hit
"Black Ginger" (West Indian
slang for voodoo). His song
"Wholesome Strain" was chosen
as the road march for the carni-
The song that got Poncho the
nod of the judges was "My Ti-
ger". He came on the stage with
his Esso Tiger but was reluctant
to put it in a tank because:
"I don't think it's clean
I can't have my tiger
smelling like gasoline."
In addition to the traditio-
nal "woman", the shrewdness of
the calypsonians and the mon-
ster which has been prowling a-
round Savaneta, Aruba was also
featured in the lyrics.

Some of the verses of a calyp-
so on Aruba by Rowlie (Nat)
Williams follow:

"This little place with sunshine for so
The best in the whole wide world you
Aruba is a place everyone could see
A place that remains in your memory
And if you want to live long and
enjoy good life
Aruba is the land of paradise
Talking about sanitation

I hope you don't think that this is a
Take a good look, watch us very close
And if you want to live long and

They have done a great deal for our
So give them a big hand for their
So if you want to live long and enjoy
good life

In the steelband contest held
the same night, Antilles Steel
Orchestra emerged as champion.
Twinkling Stars of Paradera
won the second and Aruba In-
vaders the third place.

Sound Methods Using Training Games
Different visual aids are used in the current phase of the Ef-
fective Management Course. Instructors use films, viewgraphs,
handouts etc. to illustrate points of discussion.
