President's Message


At this time, I wish to extend a
warm season's greeting to all Lago
employees and their families, annuit-
ants and friends.
The nativity is an event that changed
the world. It represents change through enlightened
relationships among men of good will.
In past months, you have successfully faced chal-
lenges which have changed our business for the bet-
ter. This too was made possible because of enlighten-
ed relationships among men of good will.
One example was the successful negotiation of a
new collective working agreement. Today, Lago em-
ployees have earned the most favorable working
conditions in the Netherlands Antilles.
The success of both our company and our com-
munity depends on the continued personal growth of
its people. As our horizons expand we must focus
on those tools which help people make greater con-
tributions not only on the job but in such areas as
education, civic leadership and community service.
We should take equal pride in our expanded train-
ing programs and being pioneers in videotape com-
munications as we do in an oil movements or refining
modernization project.
Change is a partner in progress. But Lago em-
ployees can take an extra measure of pride. You
have developed these changes through enlightened
relationships among men of good will.
On behalf of my associates and myself, I wish
each of you a Bon Pascu and Feliz Anja Nobo.

Our Cover
The harbor is a vital part of Lago operations. Ships
and crewmen from all parts of the world call here to load
or unload petroleum cargoes. They represent the all im-
portant link with our worldwide markets. On November
17, 1967 the San Nicolas Harbor commemorated its 40th
anniversary as an oil port contributing to Lago's and
Aruba's progress. Our Christmas cover is dedicated to all
who had a share in this achievement.


Our Back Page
The Santa Claus scene is the creation of Miss Mar-
guerite Brouwer of PR/IR. The poem was composed
especially for the Aruba Esso News by Mrs. Bep Meijer
of Comptroller's.

Francisco's idea called for
the alteration of the piping in
the cooling system of the main
engine to ensure a continuous
flow of fresh water through the
system. Under the old piping
arrangement, the engines of the
tugs used to run very hot caus-
ing frequent cracking of the
cylinder heads. This was due to
the fact that there were times
when two equal flows of water
were running in opposite direc-


heads and chartering of the
Government's tugboat.
Francisco received an initial
award of Fls. 40.- for his sug-
gestion in May of this year
when his idea was originally
adopted. He became eligible for
a supplemental award in Nov-
ember when his CYI was re-
opened and re-evaluated.
Presentation of the award
was made by John M. Whit-
lock, Oil Movements Division
Superintendent.

che Chrimtma6 Sky


Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of
Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the East to
Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?
For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
Matthew 2 : 1-2

The coming of Jesus marked the beginning of Christianmty. Since
His birth His teachings have spread around the world, and millions
have found happinessby learning His lessons and living in the way
He directed.


We know only one story of the birth of Jesus, the one told in the
Bible. If others were written, they do not exist today. For 1,000
years and more, historians, scholars, priests and astronomers have
tried to find out more about His birth the first Christmas an
event so important that it changed the history of the world.


The star that the Wise Men
followed to Bethlehem the
star "in the east" has been a
clue for astronomers, and they
have tried to pinpoint its ap-
pearance. In doing so, they have
put together evidence that
Christ's birth took place several
years before the year we now
call Anno Domini I the first
year of our Lord.
Astronomers know that the
Star of Bethlehem is no longer
in the sky; yet 2,000 years ago
men gazed at the same stars we
see today. The theory has been
advanced that the "star" may
not have been a star at all.
Several possibilities have been
suggested to explain the light
in the sky that guided the
Magi. Could it have been a me-
teor, or a comet, or a new star
coming to birth at about the
same time as Jesus?
I seems unlikely that the star
of Bethlehem was a meteor.
These streaks of light that
are also called shooting stars
are made when small bits of ma-
terial, sometimes as light and
feathery as ashes, enter our at-
mosphere and become heated.
But they last only for seconds;
and the Christmas star would
have had to remain in the sky
for weeks and perhaps months,
all through the time it took the
Wise Men to make their long
journey to Bethlehem.
It is unlikely, too, that the
star was a comet. Comets are
wispy, cloudlike formations of
gases and cosmic dust that re-
flect sunlight. They are mem-
bers of the solar system and,
like planets, are held in regular
orbits by the attraction of the
sun.


Frequently they are large and
bright enough td be seen clear-
ly without a telescope, and they
may remain visible for several
days, weeks, sometimes months.
But since the paths of comets
can be figured as accurately as
those of planets, astronomers
know which ones were close
enough to the earth to be seen
thousands of years ago. There
was no bright comet visible
around the time of Jesus' birth.
In any case, comets were believ-
ed to be the finger of a god
pointing toward the earth, warn-
ing of danger and calamity.
They were associated with fam-
ines and floods, earthquakes and
disasters never with happy
events.
In 1604 the German astron-
omer Johannes Kepler suggest-
ed a third possibility. He saw a
star one night where there had
been no star before. It grew
brighter and brighter until fin-
ally it could be seen in the day-
light. Then it faded and rapidly
disappeared. Such a star is cal-
led a nova, from the Latin word
for "New," and Kepler thought
that the Star of Bethlehem
might have been a nova. But
modern astronomers can trace
the appearance of new stars
down through history, and there
was no nova in the sky any-
where near the time we believe
Jesus was born.
But there are many persons
who believe that the Star of
Bethlehem was neither a group
of planets nor an exploding star
nor an especially brilliant me-
teor or comet. To them the star
was like nothing men had ever
seen before. They believe it was
a miracle.

Su ensenanzanan a plama den
henter mundu, y miljones a
hanja felicidad snyjando Su les-
nan y bibando manera El a

Nos conoce solamente un his-
toria di nacemento di Hesus,
esun cu ta pard den Biblia. Si

important cu el a cambia his-

E strea cu e Sabirnan a sigi
te na Bethlehem e "Strea di

cion pa astr6nomonan y nan a
trata di localisa e sitio caminda
el a parce den cielu. Haciendo
e trabao ey, nan a acumula
prueba cu nacemento di Cristu
a tuma lugar varies anja pro-
mer cu e anja cu nos ta jama
Anno Dominm I e promer an-

Astr6nomonan sabi cu e
Strea di Bethlehem no ta den

hendenan tabata waak e mes

e "strea" no tabata un streak

of un cometa, of un strea cu a

E strepinan di luz den cielu,
cu nos ta jama strea cu ta cai,

strea di Pascu lo meter a keda
den cielu various siman y posi-
blemente luna largu, durante
henter e tempu cu a tuma e
Sabirnan pa haci nan biahe

Ta improbabel tambe cu e
strea tabata un cometa. Un co-
meta ta un formacion fini ma-
nera un nubia, consistiendo di
gas y poeiroe cosmico cu ta re-
fleha luz di solo. Nan ta miem-
bro di sistema solar, y manera
ta e caso cu planetanan, nan

gular door di atraccion di cielu.
Hopi bez nan ta asina grand y

ta luna. Pero ya cu curso di co-
metanan por ser calcula cu
precision mescos cu di planeta-
nan, astr6nomonan sabi cual di
nan tabata asina cerca di mun-
du cu hende por a miranan
miles di anja pass No tabatin
comet visible tempu cu Hesus
a nace. Den tur case, hende-
nan tabata kere cu un cometa
ta dede di un Dios cu ta pun-
tando de direccion di mundu,
dunando aviso di peligro y desl
gracta Nan tabata asocia co
metanan cu chamber y inunda-
cion, terremoto y desastrenan
di naturaleza.
Na 1604 e astr6nomo Alemarq
Johannes Kepler a sugeri u,
tercer posibilidad. Un anochi eo
a mira un strea camlnda n
tabatin un strea antes. E streak
a bira dia pa dia mas cla te cu

el a bolbe bira scur y a des-
parce. Un strea asina jama un
"nova", cual palabra na Latin
ta nifica "nobo", y Kepler a
pensa cu e strea di Bethlehem
por tabata un nova. Pero as-
tr6nomonan modern por cal-
cula aparicion di un strea te
den pasado di histora, y no ta-
batin un nova den cielu ningun
caminda dianan cu nos ta kere
cu Hesus a nace.
Pero tin hopi hende cu ta
kere cu e Strea di Bethlehem
no tabata ni un grupo di pla-
neta ni un strea cu ta explota
nl tampoco un comets of mete-

Christmas is a festival of the
heart a holiday of much joy-
ous appeal, and music is a sig-
nificant part of Christmas
around the world. But have you
ever wondered about the origin
of Christmas music?
Carols were a very different
kind of music from the formal
hymns used in early church ser-
vices. They came from secular
and pagan sources. The non-
Christian Greeks and Romans
used them in their plays, village
festivals, weddings and birth-
day celebrations.
The word "carole" originally
meant a circle dance. Then
words were added to the music,
merely as an accompaniment to
the dance movements. These
simple folk songs came from the
hearts of country people.
Carols further developed
through their connections with
the mystery plays of the Mid-
dle Ages.
Our strolling Christmas car-
olers are part of a long tradi-
tion which also began in the
Middle Ages. Strolling beggars
sang songs and were rewarded
with free food and drink. Re-
cently, caroling has become a
way of extending charity rather
than of asking it.
Today carols are usually des-
cribed as "hymns of joy" which
are sung at Christmastime.
There has recently been an up-
surge of interest in the rich her-
itage of Christmas carols from
other countries. Carol collections
add to the joy and brightness
of Christmas a happy season
of the year for Christians.
"Hark! The Herald Angels
Sing"
Originally, this English carol


,t llh-l I h-m HW.
AS I d -
6 7 .

a o ... - p ,"


h k .


S \ * a




was a simple hymn to the king
written by Rev. Charles Wes-
ley. George Whitfield changed
it to a carol of the Nativity
with several short four-line
stanzas.
Then, more than 100 years
later, an organist named Wil-
liam Cummings rearranged the
words into ten-line stanzas and
set them to a composition by


Kd


Felix Mendelssohn. (Mendels-
sohn's original music was com-
posed to celebrate the invention
of printing!).
"0 Little Town of Bethlehem"
Another American carol of
the Nativity, "0 Little Town of
Bethlehem," has a beautiful his-
tory. In 1865, Bishop Phillips
Brooks visited the Holy Land,


riding on horseback from Jeru-
( salem to Bethlehem. His first
glimpse of Bethlehem was as it
slept peacefully on Christmas
Eve.
Three years later, back in
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he
remembered the setting and
wrote the words of this carol
for the children of his congre-
gation. He then asked his or-
ganist, Lewis H. Redner, to
compose a melody. For over a
week, Redner could not hit up
the right music to suit the
words. Then supposedly while
sleeping on Christmas Eve,
Rednes heard this tune which he
S called "a gift from heaven" -
S and thus completed the carol.

The Legend Around

"Poinsettia" Flower
Among the flowers symbolic
of the Christmas season is the
S poinsettia, which has a legen-
dary origin.
It was the custom in a cer-
tain town in Mexico to take
gifts to the church on Christ-
mas Eve and offer them to the
Christ Child.
On this particular night there
S was a little boy standing out-
side the church door. He want-
ed desperately to go and join
S the members of the congrega-
tion who were laying their gifts
on the altar, but he was poor
and he had nothing to give.
But I can at least pray, he
thought to himself. And so he
knelt down outside the window!
where he could hear the music
coming from the church organ.
When he rose again to his feet,
to his great amazement he saw
in the spot where he had knelt
a beautiful plant with scarlet
leaves and a yellow flower in
their center. He had never seen
anything like it in his life, and
realizing this was a divine mir-
acle he gently plucked the
stalk and took it into the church
to lay on the altar.

Undo Canticanan di Pascu a Bini


Pascu ta un festival di cura-
zon un dia di fiesta cual ta
atrae hopi alegria, y music ta
un parti significant di Pascu
den henter mundu. Pero bo a
puntra algun dia tocante origen
di music di Pascu ?
Canticanan ceremonial tabata
un sorto di music diferente for
di e himnonan usa durante ser-
vicionan den misa tempu cu
Cristianidad a cuminza. Nan a
bini di fuentenan secular y pa-
gano. E Griegonan y Romano-
nan pagano tabata usa nan pa
comedian, fiesta den aldea, casa-
mentu y hacimentu di anja.
E palabra su nificacion origi-
nal tabata un balia den circulo.


Despues nan a pone acerca pa-
labranan cu e music, solamente
pa compafia e movementonan di
e baile. E cancionnan simpel
aki a sali for di curazon di e
campesinonan.
Despues e canticanan a des-
arolja pa medio di nan conexion
cu e comedianan misterioso di
Edad Media.
Nos cancioneronan cu ta pa-
sa rond dianan di Pascu, ta par-
ti di un tradition largu cual
tambe a cuminza durante Edad
Media. Pididornan di limosna
cu tabata pasa rond cantando
nan canticanan a recibi como
regalo cuminda y bibida liber.
Den ultimo tempu esnan cu ta


pasa rond cantando realmente
ta haci obra di caridad envez di
pidi caridad.
Awendia canticanan di Pascu
jama ,,himnonan di alegria" cu
ta worde cantA den temporada
di Pascu. Den ultimo tempu tin
un aumento grand den atencion
pa canticanan di Pascu for di
otro paisnan. Coleccionnan di
cantica di Pascu ta trece ale-
gria di Pascu pa hendenan, un
temporada di anja felis pa
Cristiannan.

"Tende. Angelnan Ta Canta"

Originalmente e cantica Ing-
14s aki tabata un simpel himno
pa e Rey, cual Reverendo Char-

Whitfield a cambid den un can-
tica di Pascu ora el a scirbi va-

Mas cu cien anja despues un
organist cu jama William
Cummings a traha un areglo
nobo di e palabranan den stanza
di diez linja, y a pone nan na
music componi door di Felix
Mendelssohn. (E mdsica origi-
nal di Mendelssohn tabata des-
tinM pa celebra invention di
prensa ta druk).
"0 Ciudad Chiquito
di Bethlehem"
Un otro cantica Mericano di
Pascu, cu jama "O Ciudad Chi-
quito di Bethlehem" tin un his-
toria masha bunita. Na 1865
Obispo Phillips Brooks a bis-
hita Tera Santu, riba cabal for
di Jerusalem te Bethlehem. Su
promer bista di Bethlehem ta-
bata mientras e aldea tabata
drumi ketu Bispu di Pascu.
Tres anja despues, ora el a
bolbe na Filadelfia, estado di
Pennsylvania, el a corda e mu-
sica y el a scirbi e palabranan
di e cantica aki pa muchanan
di su congregacion. Despues el
a pidi su organista, Lewis H.
Redner, pa compone un melo-
dia. Mas cu un siman largu
Redner no por a pensa riba e
music corecto pa e palabranan.
Te segun nan ta bisa, Bispu di
Pascu, den su sonjo, Redner a
tende e melodia cual el a jama
"un regalo di Cielu", y di e
manera ey el a complete e can-
tica.

Every year accidents mar the
holidays for thousands of fam-
ilies. You can help against such
mishaps with these basic pre-
cautions for the holiday season:
Keep the tree out of the home
until you are ready to decorate
it, preferably just before Christ-
mas. Then, saw the trunk dia-
gonally, a little above the ori-
ginal cut. Set it up in an ade-
quate-size container of water so
it will stay fresh. Replace ab-
sorbed water daily, if neces-
sary to keep the water level
above the cut. Do not place the
tree near room exits, stoves, or
TV sets. Do not smoke near the
tree. Also be careful when sel-
Sting and handling artificial
ees. Some have fire hazards.
Sso, do not place lights on
metal trees.
It is recommended that you
remove natural trees from the
house immediately after Christ-
mas Day. Electric toys and
trains should not be operated
under the tree.

December i2 1Q67


Inspect tree lighting sets for
frayed wires, loose connections
and broken sockets. Use only
lighting equipment with the
Underwriters' Laboratories (UL)
label. Christmas lights can put
an extra strain on the electrical
circuit on which they are plac-
ed. If you are not sure about its
limits (the circuit serving the
tree should not have more than
a 15-ampere fuse), ask a qua-
lified electrician. Insert insulat-
ed staples, not tacks or nails, to
keep lighting wires in place on
other than the tree. On the tree
use flexible wire for fastening.
Do not place wax candles on or
near the tree. Turn off the
lights when you leave the house
or go to sleep. If you plan dis-
plays requiring extensive wir-
ing, again consult an electrician.
Keep paper or cloth displays
away from electric bulbs, cand-
les and ashtrays. Use noncom-
bustible materials (metals,
glass, asbestos) where possible.
Use only combustible supplies

should not be left unattended.
Do not use polystyrene foam for

Dispose of wrappings in a metal
trash can.

Clear outdoor stairs and
walks. Provide adequate outside
lighting. Supply houseguests
with enough ashtrays. Check
upholstered chairs and sofas for
burning cigarette butts after
guests leave. Do not leave toys
or packages where someone can
trip over them. Use a sturdy
ladder to trim the tree. Move
the ladder as needed. Do not
overreach.

Never drive after drinking.
Adjust car speed to road condi-
tions in bad weather. At night,
pedestrians should wear some
white or reflective clothing so
they can be seen. When cross-

Fifteen Systems Analysts Master 15 Systems Analyst Ta Sigi Curso

Disk Operating System of IBM 360 Tocante Sistema Di Disco IBM 360


Fifteen systems analysts re-
cently completed an advanced
course in the operating techni-
ques of Lago's new IBM 360
computer. Instructor was Miss
Susan Horner from the IBM
Time-Life Educational Center
in New York City
Miss Horner has a degree in
Spanish. She received special
IBM training in computer lang-
uages to become a qualified in-
structor.
The course teaches the con-
cepts and facilities of DOS
(Disk Operating System) which
is used for operating the IBM
360. Supplied by IBM, the DOS
is a "software" package con-
taining a series of control pro-
grams that works with user
programs to process jobs on the
computer


As part of the course, the
participants also learned how
COBOL (Common Business
Oriented Language) works with
DOS on the new 360 computer
Three systems analysts rec-
eived additional instruction in
planning and generating the
system to meet Lago's particu-
lar requirements.
Total training time was five
days with daily 4-hour sessions.
The additional instruction to
three systems analysts took an-
other two days.
Present plans call for additio-
nal training later on covering
programming of teleprocessing
operations. This involves the
operation of remote devices
which communicate directly
with the computer.

Lago's SafetyStanding

At The End of the Year
So far Lago employees have
experienced six disabling injur-
ies this year. This compares
with only three disabling injur-
ies last year.
Comparing this year's period
with 1966, there is a slight de-
crease in the total number of
accidents (November, 1966: 166;
November, 1967: 152).
Total injuries at the end of
November, 1966 were 107, com-
pared with 108 injuries up to
the end of November this year.
Our accident frequency rate
for November, 1967 was- 1.99
while the rate for 1966 was .81.
Our present safety perform-
ance indicates that this year
will perhaps not be as good as
last year. As of August this
year, Lago ranks as No. 3 in
the National Safety Council
contest. Last year Lago held
first place.
Increased safety activities are
contemplated for 1968.

Where Our Calendars

In 4246 BC, the Egyptians
adopted the first calendar

was a twelve month calendar
with each month containing
thirty days, totalling 360
days for the year. To make
the calendar come out even

Oh Christmas Brig htl


Christmas, oh Christmas, oh wonderful feeling,
All children are happy and merry and bright;
Santa gave gifts, full of love, full of laughter,
Everyone got what they really were after;
Christmas, oh wonderful Christmas tide!

Christmas, oh wonderful Christmas tide!
All is now over and Santa must leave;
The reindeer waiting, the sleigh bells ringing,
The radiant faces joyfully singing
Of their hope for a future with Christmas bright.
