This year Lago's Scholarship Foundation broke througn
the Fls. 1,000,000 barrier invested in Aruba's progress
through education.
In celebrating their tenth anniversary the Foundation
announced 49 grants totaling Fls. 170,450 have been
awarded to aspiring young men and women. Seven of the
new students are sons and daughters of present Lago
employees. Four are children of annuitants.
This brings the total aided by the Foundation to 239
young men and women and more than Fls. 1,000,000 spent
in the last decade. Twenty-two of these students will
begin their first year of higher learning this fall. The
rest of the scholarship grants are renewals for those al-

ready attending a university or college.
Six of the new students will begin studying in the
United States, one in Puerto Rico, and 15 in Holland.
Each student who completes four years of university
study represents an average of between Fls. 10,000 and
Fls. 20,000 of Lago Scholarship Foundation assistance.
This money pays for tuition, books and supplies, travel-
ing expenses, room and board, clothing, laundry and
personal expenses.
The Foundation's purpose is to make financial grants
to Arubans seeking degrees in the arts and sciences and
technical and vocational training that will contribute to
Aruba's well being.

Some of the Foundation's new students have parents
who work for Lago. The parents are: W. W. Hazel Lago
Commissary, V. C. Figaroa Mechanical Department, E.
Oduber Process Department, O. L. Richardson Process
Department, M. C. Pinas Process Department and P. G.
Brook Comptroller's Department.
E Charles, a beginning LSF student, is a Lago em-
ployee working in the Mechanical Department. However,
this fall he will be studying in the United States under
the Lago Educational Leave of Absence policy.
Several students starting school this fall are the child-
ren of Lago annuitants. The annuitants are: Z. de Kort,

Visit U.S.A. Millions Do It Yearly
In the shrinking world of this modern Jet Age, more and
more people are finding it possible to visit the United States
every year. A report on world wide travel taken from "Common
Ground" magazine issued by KLM substantiates this fact.
It states that in 1965 a remarkable total of over a million bus-
iness and pleasure seekers from overseas traveled to the U.S.
This is a gain of 101.5% over the total of 1961, when the joint
government-industry "Visit U.S.A." program was launched.
The United Kingdom with 174,863 of the year's visitors con-
tinues to be the largest single source of overseas travelers to
the U.S. Other countries with more than 35.000 visitors are West
Germany, France, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Japan and
Italy. Visitors coming from the Netherlands totaled 24,849.
In addition to visitors from overseas, there were 383,771 arri-
vals from Mexico during 1965, an increase of almost 95'; over
the total of 1961. It is estimated that over six million tourists
came from Canada last year.
The United States Travel Service and the travel industry are
increasing efforts to induce more foreigners to visit the U.S. The
travel industry is seeking to identify points of interest through-
out the country at various times of the year.

E articulo ta bisa cu na 1965 e notable total di mas cu un mil-
jon di hende di ultramar cu ta busca negoshi of placer, a biaha
bai Merca. Esaki ta un aumento di 101.5% ariba e total di anja
1961, den cual anja e program conhunto di gobierno y di indus-

Fuera di e bishitantenan di ultramar, 383,771 persona a jega

If Leonardo Had Not Been Right, What

Would Today's Airplanes Look Like?
Approximately 12% of Lago's petroleum output goes toward
the production of aviation fuel. This is 20 million barrels per
year of twelve different grades of aviation fuel.
We have the pioneers in aviation to thank for today's boom-
ing aviation fuel market. This production of aviation fuel would

Future Airplanes Promise To Give

Major Thrust To Jet Fuel Sales
"New refining technology will be needed to meet the growth
in demand for jet fuel that will accompany the introduction of
supersonic transports (SST's) and the so-called jumbo jets," a

petroleum scientist said recently.

did, however, manage to get off the ground. In fact,
it was the vehicle used for the first air journey by
man across the English Channel.

E consuma total di combus-

Pa produci combustible di
mihor calidad pa jetnan, Lago

E parti principal di combus-

mundo e ta bini, tin un conte-
nido di kerosin di 1 te 10 por-

di 10 te 15 porciento.
No tur e 12 porciento ey ta

Mr. Carroll joined Lago as a
junior apprentice "B" in the
Mechanical Department in July,
1948. During his employment
Mr. Carroll had four breaks in
service. In January, 1962, he
was re-employed as an engineer
in the Technical Department.
That same year he transferred
to Process. Advancing through
the ranks in the Process Depart-
ment he became technical as-
sistant in Process-L.O.F., the
position he held before his re-
cent promotion.
A graduate in chemical en-
gineering from the University
of Colorado, Mr. Carroll spent
three and a half years in the
U.S. Army Chemical Corps as
an officer. He also worked as
production supervisor at a fluid
coke plant with FMC Corp.
At Lago Mr. Carroll worked
one year as contact engineer in
the Acid and Edeleanu Plant,
two years as technical assistant
in the L.O.F. Department and
two in the Refining Division.
Mr. Carroll also worked as a
Summer Training student at
Lago for four summers during
high school and college. He is
married and has two children.
