Four Employees and One Ex-Employee

Receive CYI Awards During September
Four employees and one ex-employee were CYI winners during
September. Three were from Process and two from Mechanical.
The ex-employee was Jose G. Ruiz, an Instrumentman A, who
accepted employment with a construction company in St. Croix.
Although he is no longer an employee and is abroad, he still

qualifies under the CYI pro-
gram and will receive his Fls.30
award by check. Like any other
employee, ex-employees are al-
so protected under the two-year
clause of the CYI program.
Wilhelm Geerman, an assis-
tant operator in Process-Refin-
ing, had two ideas adopted. He
received Fls. 40 for on idea to
install a chain block northeast
of the chemical injector pot at
PCAR. His other idea, calling

for installing a 1-inch caustic
line from caustic pump No. 919
discharge on the FGS DEA sys-
tem, earned him Fls. 25.
A supplemental award of
Fls. 35 went to Andresito Croes,
an assistant operator in Proc-
ess-Refining. Previously, in De-
cember, 1965, he received an
initial award of Fls. 50 and
Fls. 25 for being the safety sug-
gester of the month of Decem-
ber, 1965. He suggested to tie in
both slurry pumps strainers in-
to a hot pump line at PCAR.
The other two September
CYI winners were:
Eugenio Damian
Process-Utilities FIs. 25
Enrique Hazel
Mechanical-Machinist FIs. 25

sion to retain December 31,

Protect Our Natural Resources
Aruba's natural resources take a number of forms. Whatever;
they may be, it's the task of every citizen to help protect them.
Our natural resources are not all hidden in the ground, but
some are. Take for instance, the remnants of early civilization
found in the ground at various places. They have their historic
value. They are about the only resources that tell us about the
early inhabitants, the Arowak Indians. Any artifacts found that
could give more information about the early cultures should be
preserved and handled with care.
Other natural resources are our fine beaches, caves, and In-
dian scripts on rocks and natural rock formations. These should
be kept clean and undamaged.
Friendliness of the local population is another asset for Aruba.
In view of the growing tourist industry, this is an especially
valuable resource of future economic growth.
The island is also known for its cleanliness. Everyone should,
contribute towards keeping up our good name in this area.
All of these resources should be considered in terms of their:
value to the community.
We can only gain by protecting them.

Second World War and shortly
thereafter. The T-2s can carry
about 16,600 tons of cargo.
SSize Increase poses Problems
While the size increase of'
tankers is apparently an econo-1
mically attractive way of reduc-
ing transportation cost, the size
increase poses many problems
Not every harbor can accom-
modate these giants. One way
to handle them is by building
offshore docking facilities.
At Lago, we are aware of;
these problems and they are be-'

ily and are also bemng installed
on quite a few of the newer
tankers and bulk carriers being
delivered to our competitors.
These bulbous bows can be
fitted to older tankers as well.
This innovation produces a
marked improvement in the ba-
sic relationship between a ship's
speed and power that would not
have been considered possible a
few years ago.

Collection Will Go To Aruba
Jerry says that eventually
the Seroe Colorado School col-
lection will be donated to the
Aruba Nostra Foundation. Jer-
ry also works very closely with
this foundation, which plans to
set up a museum in Aruba
The recent find proves that
there are many more hidden
historic treasures in the ground.
Anyone who finds these arti-
facts should treat them like na-
t u r a I resources. Especially
when complete urns are found,
one should not try to move
them. Expert handling is re-
quired so as not to destroy them
or their contents. Therefore, it's
advisable to contact any of the
members of the Aruba Nostra

New Electronic Ferrograph Sounder

Replaces Line-and-Lead Soundings
A piece of electronic equipment is now being used for sounding
in San Nicolas Harbor. This is the Ferrograph Inshore Graphic
By means of a cable and transducer attached below water level
on a tug's hull, the electronic equipment sends sounds to the sea

bottom which are echoed back.
The echo is recorded in feet on
the Ferrograph The sounding
equipment operates on a 12-volt
battery and has three sounding
ranges: (1) from 0 to 60 feet;
(2) from 60 to 120 feet; (3)
from 120 to 180 feet.
With the aid of this ferro-
graph sounder a chart has al-
ready been plotted of a section
of the harbor, especially where
the depth is below the required
minimum depth.

The use of this piece of elec-
tronic equipment eliminates the
previous method of lead and
line for manual soundings.
The shallow areas in the har-
bor are caused by sediment that
is relocated when tankers back
up from the finger piers.
Since March 30 this year a
crane with a clamshell bucket
has been dredging the shallow
area in the harbor opposite the
No. 1 Gasoline Dock.

Take your loot OFF the gas immediately This an extremely important point to remember

BRAKE CAREFULLY Don't slam on the brake-you might lose control Slow your car down as
quickly as possible, but don't panic Brake quickly, but carefully.


STEER RIGHT Avoid a head on collision even if it means going off the road Never try to go
around the oncoming car by going to the left He may take the same escape route and you
will crash head on
