Student Joins

rainees at Lago
under the Cooperative Educa-
tion Program this year started
their 11-week training assign-
ment last week.
Since the program began in
1959 for UTS students, Lago
has helped over 50 young men
gain experience in their prac-
tical year.
However, this is the first
time a young lady is taking
part in the on-the-job training
program.
Miss Ann F. K. Leong, an
electrical engineering student,
has been assigned to the Me-
chanical-General Engineering
Section.
As part of the school's cur-
riculum for technical students,
they are required to do one-
year practical work related to
their field of study.
Eighteen-year-old Ann is
one of four female students
who completed their theoreti-
cal studies at the John F.
Kennedy School in Oranjestad
(Continued on page 3)


Effective Sept. 1
Mrs. Connor, the former Ve-
ra Euson, was originally em-
ployed in December 1957 as a
Nurses' Aid in the hospital.
In March 1959 she left for Hol-
land to study nursing at the
St. Elizabeth Ziekenhuis in
Leiden, and graduated in April
1962. She then specialized in
Obstretics Nursing for six
months at the RUkskweek-
school in Rotterdam before re-
turning to Aruba
Mrs. Connor started her nur-
sing career at Lago Hospital
in January 1963. Two years
later she became Staff Nurse.
Before her recent promo-
tion, Mrs. Connor acted as
Nurse Supervisor on various
occasions.
She was recently married to
Alexander L. M. Connor, a me-
chanical engineer in Mechani-
cal-Engineering Division. She
is active in community work
and in her spare time likes to
read. She also enjoys traveling
and toured Europe last year.
Crismiliano Schwengle began
his company career as an ap-
prentice with the Lago Voca-
tional School in 1951. After
graduating in 1955, Cris work-
ed as Process Helper "D" in
the Pitch Stills where he ad-
vanced to Pumper in 1959.
Two years later he progressed
to Assistant Operator in the
Oil Movements Division. His
promotion to Operator went in-

Ed Thode Rejoins Lago With Degree

In Business Administration Sept. 1


Juliano E. (Ed.) Thode re-
turned to Lago September 1
with a B- S. degree in Busi-
ness Administration. Ed, who
graduated recently from the
Ohio University in Athens,
Ohio, earned a scholarship un-
der the Lago Educational As-















J. E. Thode

distance Program (LEAP) in
1966.
By attending summer ses-
sions, Ed completed his colle-
ge education in three years,
ranking eighth among 1090
students in the College of Bu-
siness Administration. He gra-
duated with a 3.59 average out
of a 4.00 maximum.
Ed made the Dean's honor
roll almost continuously while
in college. He was elected to
two honorary societies : Beta
Gamma Sigma, one of the
highest scholastic honors that a
student in business administra-
tion can achieve and Phi Kap-
pa Phi, a society which honors
the highest ranking students
from any branch of learning.
During his last two years
at Ohio, Ed was accompanied
by his wife and two children,
ages 6 and 3. He and his wife,
former Lago nurse Margot
Thode, enjoyed the climate and
hilly panorama of Ohio. They
visited various campuses in the
area and Cincinnati, took up
swimming and tennis and took
advantage of the numerous
university- sponsored cultural
programs.


As a member of the student
chapter of the Society for the
Advancement of Management,
Ed had the opportunity to gain
some practical business expe-
rience.
A Lago employee since 1954,
Ed started as a Junior Clerk
in the Mechanical-Administra-
tion Office. Before leaving for
the U.SA. he had been work-
ing in PR/IR as Publications
Assistant, working on both Es-
so News and Diario.
At present he is a PR/IR
Assistant assigned to the
Wage & Salary Section of the
PR/IR Department. His office
is located in G.O.B. Room 161,
telephone 2419.

To make optimum use of the
new forklifts, some changes
were necessary to the build-
ing, known as Location 40.
Storage racks were extended
to 20 feet high from 11% feet.
Aisles, between 13 and 16 feet
previously, were narrowed to
nine feet because the new
trucks can literally "turn on
a dime"

The trucks can move for-
ward and backward at the
flick of the lever and while
the fork telescopes to 21 feet,
it can extend forward and per-
form tilting motions. It fea-
tures several built-in safety
features such as the automatic
shut-off of the engine when
the operator steps down.
Upward and downward mo-
vement of the fork is conve-
niently controlled by a device
resembling the oversized han-
dle of a screwdriver.


prove on them. One idea in-
volved the installation of guard
on the trucks to insure safer
operation; the other suggest-
ed protective rubber buffers
to prevent damage to the oil
hoses.

Besides quadrupling the stor-
age area in Location 40, now
housing 3000 items, the new
equipment and facilities offer
extension possibilities to pro-
vide for the growing material
needs of the refinery. Another
advantage is that many items,
previously stored outdoors and
thus subject to corrosion, have
been moved indoors.
In addition to Location 40,
the Materials Division controls
Location 10, housing 20,000
items, and the outside storage
(mostly piping) containing
about 1000 items. Frits Beau-
Jon is in charge of these ope-
rations.

Six employees collected Fls.
455 in CYI awards during
August. The highest of these
awards, Fls. 165 (supplemen-
tal), went to P. J. Beaujon,
formerly in Mechanical Engi-
neering Division, for his idea
"to replace "Dum Dum" ma-
sonic with "King of the Roof"
cement as a tank bottom wea-
ther seal material. This idea
originally earned "Jackie" an
initial award of Fls. 150 in Ja-
nuary of this year.
"Jackie" also received an
award of las. 40 for his CYI
to "barricade the roadway be-
tween the gasoline pumphouse
and spheres nos. 773 and 775."
B. R. van der Linden, Me-
chanical M&C, won Fls. 90
for his idea to "install seal oil
injection from discharge to
stuffing box or gland nearest
to seal face to be used as a
cooling system for the mecha-
nical seal." With this CYI,
"Benedicto" earned the Fls. 50
"Problem Area" bonus for the
month of August.
During this month the "Pro-
blem Area" covered pumps
and motors.
Three other Mechanical em-
ployees, all from the Shop
Zone, were awarded Fls. 40
each for CYI's pertaining to
safety. A. M. ("Dolfi") Arends

Dear Jim :

Word has just been received that the National Safety Council has award-
ed Lago the Council's Award of Merit and First Place Award for your
excellent safety record in 1968.

Winning this award in the competition with 29 of the large refineries
worldwide is an achievement worthy of the highest praise. A safety
record as outstanding as Lago's can only be achieved with the effort and
dedication of every Lago employee. We understand that this is the
ninth time Lago has placed first in the NSC contest since it became a
member in 1939. This is truly an outstanding long term safety record.

Please accept our congratulations.


Very truly yours,

R. L. Menk

Tunnelnan na Oslo y Tanki 352

Ta Usa Mesun Material Contra Awa


Un material especial, cu nan
ta usa pa fura tunnelnan na
Olso, Noruega, a hanja uso
nobo riba un di Lago su tan-
kman siman past.
E substancia aki, cu ta pa
tene awa afor y seja tambe,
jama UPC (capa uretano po-
lietileno) a word usA cu exito
door di Chain-Brite Maintenan-
ce Corporation, cual fabric
ta traha e substancia ey, riba
dak di Tanki 352 pa protehe
e furu isolador di poli-uretano
scuma.
Aplicacion di UPC, bao su-
pervision di Robert D. Fine, re-
presentante di Chain-Brite, ta
protehe insulation di scuma
plastic for di vapor, awa y
gas. Y isolacion cu ta wanta
mas ta nifica menos perdida
pa via di evaporacion y ta haci
cost di mantenecion menos.
UPC ta un desaroljo rela-
tivamente nobo, pero ja e tin
un historic di ocho anja di exi-
to den su uso. E ta worde bar-
c. den forma liquid, nan por
spruit e, pone cu kwashi, of lo-
re riba cualkier superficie. Pe-


ro ora nan use e ta core mescos
cu awa y ta forma un capa cu
ta bira duro, toch elastic y
transparent, y e ta keda lom-
bra. E capa ey por want tem-
peratura te 350 F. y ta resis-
ti action di majoria di sub-
stancianan quimica.
E tin e ventaha adicional di
ta acepta cualkier color cu
pone aden, y tambe por pone
aden santu, zeta combustibel
of pleister. Y esey ta e mihor
calidad di flexibilidad di UPC.
Pone un poco santu aden y por
usd pa drecha schoorsteen. Ti-
ra poco color blauw aden y e
ta bira un furu bunita y dura-
dero pa piscina. Mezcla UPC
cu poco zeta combustible y e
por worde usA pa seja tanki.
Tabata necesario pa sand-

Icebreaker Manhattan

Ready To Cut Across

Alaska's Ice Fields
The seven-month conversion
of the S. S. Manhattan, lar-
gest merchant ship under the
American flag, to an experi-
mental ice breaking tanker
capable of challenging the
Arctic ice fields is complete.
A specially trained crew
from Humble Oil & Refining
Company will take the vessel
from the yards of Sun Ship
Building & Dry Dock Compa-
ny on a mission that could
lead to construction of giant
ice breaking supertankers car-
rying some of Alaska's North
Slope oil through the North-
west Passage to U.S. Coast
refineries at 60 cents per
barrel less than other means
of transport.
Much of the ship's effective-
ness hinges on its new bow,
designed to break thick ice
faster. Set at a sharp 18-de-
gree angle to the water sur-
face, rather than at the 33-de-
gree angle of traditional ice-
breaker bows, the new bow
protrudes farther out over the
ice.
The Manhattan's round trip
through the Passage will take
about 100 days. It sailed re-
cently from Chester, Penn.
and is scheduled to reach the
East Coast again on Novem-
ber 10, carrying a small
amount of crude oil.
