From Kansas University
"Looking back to the three
years at Kansas University,"
says Harry Wever, "I am
proud to be a KU-man and of
having had the chance of earn-
ing my BS degree in business
While studying twelve to
fourteen hours a day and at-
tending summer sessions, Har-
ry completed the four-year
curriculum in three years. He
graduated in January this
year and returned to work
early this month in Comp-
troller's-Systems & Data Pro-
Since he left Lago in Jan-
uary, 1964 as a LEAP stud-
ent, Harry never returned to
Aruba during his vacations.
But he did a lot of traveling
in the United States. He vis-
ited all the states east and
south of Kansas and in all
crossed more than thirty
During his three years at
Kansas University, he was
twice chosen to attend the
birthday celebration of Ex-
President Harry S. Truman.
Many foreign students are in-
vited by Mr. Truman to at-
tend his anniversary party.
They then congratulate him in
their own language.. On this
occasion, Mr. Wever was a
good-will ambassador for Aru-
ba with his "Masha Pabien."
At Kansas University, which
has a student body of over
15,000, including many for-

Your Kite in The Air.

Of Power Lines Beware
The season for kite flying recently started in Aruba. Through
the centuries, this sport has been practiced by young and old.
An Englishman by the name of George Pocock, who lived in
the early 1800, kited himself into fame with. a carriage that
was powered by a pair of large kites. It moved along at the then
phenomenal speed of 20 miles an hour or so. One windy day
Pocock actually managed to travel 113 miles in his wind-blown
The spread of civilization, though, has begun to interfere
with the ancient sport. Now youngsters sometimes learn with
tragic consequences that telephone and power lines seem to have
an almost magnetic attraction for kites.
With this in mind, the National Safety Council suggests you
Instruct your youngsters in the following safety procedures:
- Fly kites in a level, open space away from power lines, airports,
trees and street traffic.
- If the kite should become entangled in power lines, leave it. It is
better to lose a kite than to risk your life.
- Kites should be flown only in dry weather. A wet string may con-
duct electricity down to the flyer.
- Kite strings should not contain any metallic fibers, tinsel or wire.
They conduct electricity, and should the kite become entangled in
a power line it could result in death or serious injury.
- Kites should not be flown over radio and.television aerials.
-Don't fly your kite if the wind is freakish or changeable.
- Don't use protruding frames on a kite, because when swerving
during takeoff, the kite may hit other children, and cause serious
eye injury.

Si bo File Ta Den Laria,

Cuidao Cu Waya Electricol
Tempu di vlie a cuminza poco dia pasa na Aruba. Ya ta algun
clen anja caba cu hende hoben y bieu ta practice e sport aki. Un

un velocidad di 20 milja pa ora, loke tabata algu fenomenal pa
e tempo ey. Un dia cu tabatin bientu fuerte, Pocock hasta a
core cu un velocidad di 113 milja den su garoshi di vlie.
Pero, expansion di civilizacion a bin stroba e sport di vlie.
Awendia hobencitonan ta sinja, tin bez cu consecuencia tragic,
