Esso News Qets "Mini" Format
With this issue, the Aruba Esso News launches its new "Mini"
format. We believe this communications step forward will make
possible a more readable and creatively edited publication.
In recent years, Lago's communications efforts have made sev-
eral advances. In 1964, the Diario was inaugurated. Later that year,
Dial 7 was installed. Last year, Dial 7 was made available to the
public. The several hundred calls into Dial 7 made each month from
outside numbers indicate this is both an employee and a public
Earlier this year, we changed printing processes so we could in-
clude more timely photographs in the Esso News.
In July, Lago pioneered the use of videotape communications
among all the Jersey affiliates.
In developing these many changes, one of our main objectives
has been to provide the most effective communications channels
which serve our employees.
Today, each of our communications media is designed for parti-
cular kinds of information. With this change to the "mini" format,
we are gaining a flexibility of design that makes it possible to give
special treatment to fewer stories.per page. Naturally, the number
of pages will be increased.
Since most of our issues will be eight or more pages, we can
once again take advantage of the two page center spread for
visually striking information.
In communications as in all things, change is the constant com-
panion of progress. We believe our readers will be better served as
a result of this format change.

Esso News Ta fHaa Forma "Mini"
Cu e numero aki Esso News ta lanza su forma "Mini" nobo. Nos
ta kere cu e paso dilanti aki den comunicacion ta haci posibel un
publication cu ta mas facil pa leza y editA cu mas creatividad.
Den anjanan recien, Lago su esfuerzonan riba tereno di comuni-
cacion a haci varies advance. Na 1964 compania a cuminza usa Dia-
rio. Mas laat den e anja ey Dial 7 a cuminza funciona. Anja pasA
Dial 7 a keda na disposicion di public en general. Various centen-
ares di jamada na Dial 7 di pafor di compania ta proba cu esaki ta
un servicio tantu pa empleadonan como pa public.
Mas tempran den e anja coriente nos a cambia e sistema di druk,
pa nos por inclui mas fotografia di actualidad den Esso News.
Na Juli Lago a present su mes como promer promoter di e
medio di comunicacion cu jama videotape, entire tur e companianan
asocia di Jersey.
Desaroljando e hopi cambionan ey, un di nos obhetivonan principal
tabata di percura pa nos tin e avenidanan di comunicacion mas
mihor cu tin pa sirbi nos empleadonan.
Awendia cada un di nos medionan di comunicacion ta disenja pa
cierto tipo di comunicacion. Cu e cambio aki pa e forma "mini",
nos ta alcanza un flexibilidad di disenjo cual ta haci posibel pa nos
di duna tratamento especial na menos storia riba cada bladchi.
Naturalmente, e numero di pagina lo bira mas.
Ya cu mayoria di nos nuneronan lo tin ocho bladchi of mas, nos
lo per un bez mas haci uso di e bladchi dobbel den centro pa in-
formacion cu ta haci bista y jama atencion.
Den comunicacion, manera ta den tur cos, cambio ta e com-
paflero constant di progress. Nos ta kere cu nos lectornan lo tin
mihor servicio como resultado di cambio di e forma di Esso News.

Nov. CYI's Improve
Firefighting and Safety
Two CYTs relating to fire-
fighting and safety, submitted
by Henk Reeberg, Comptroller's,
and Meleno Pourier, Mechani-
cal-Instrument, were awarded
Henk Reeberg received an Ini-
tial award of Fls. 40 for a sug-
gestion to construct a device to
hold firehoses on top of tanks.
The idea was not adopted as
suggested, but prompted revised
firefighting procedures.
Meleno Pourier's suggestion
to build a walkway to the fire
hydrant west of the Hydro
plant was adopted as a safety
item. He received an initial
award of Fs. 40 for this idea
which simplifies getting to the
hydrant and minimizes hazards
of tripping over pipes in the
surrounding area.

Process Operator!

Central Computer
A course for teaching Process
operators to operate the units
with the assistance of a central
computer is presently under
way. The training program is
designed to acquaint the parti-
cipants with the new equipment
now being installed in the Refin-
ing Division Control House. Title
of the course is "Process Oper-
ator Training for Refining Div-
ision Control Center".

When completed, the center
will serve as the central control
house for all units in the Cat
& Light Ends and Stills &
Cracking Areas.



For Operating
The Refining Division Control
House is under construction
and will be completed in Decem-
ber. The first unit is expected
to be hooked up to the new
center in March. The tentative
schedule calls for all units to
be operating through the new
control center during the third
quarter of 1968.

Robert Smith from General
Electric, manufacturers of the
computer, is instructor of the
course. Refining Division Coor-
dinator of the Control House
Project, Joe Carroll, assists Mr.
Smith. Dufy Kock coordinates

A seminar on mechanical
seals and metallic packing was
held at Lago recently by John
Cronin of the Dura-Metallic
Company, New Jersey.
The seminar lasted from Nov-

was attended by M&C super-

group participated in a two-
hour session.
Altogether Mr. Cronin held
nine sessions, including one spe-
cial session for engineers who
received information on the ap-
plication of seals and packing.
Mr. Cronin pointed out the
advantages of using these seal-
ing products in refining and
processing industries. By using
slides, he demonstrated the var-
ious types of seals and the cor-

The seals rotate with the
