first steel bands struck up "Archie" that the parade came to a
Miss Fowler, 18, is the daughter of E. D. Fowler, section head

"How Are You Feeling?" "Fine!" Roars the Aruba Esso Tiger

One of Aruba's Esso Tigers
had been ailing recently, but is
roaring at full power again. The
diagnosis was contamination.
The medicine included the in-
stallation of above ground stor-
age tanks at the Seroe Colorado
Esso Servicenter.
Following two months of ex-
tensive quality inspections, Es-
so Marketing found a contamin-
ation problem only at the Seroe
Colorado station.
