1970 Lago Science Fair Committee N

Functions with Four New Members

As the first step in prepar-
ing for the 1970 science fair,
Lago Management recently ap-
pointed four new members to
the Lago Science Fair Com-
mittee. The new group consists
of Alexander Hoo (Chairman),
Dr. Johannes Waasdorp, Albert
Eman, Simon Oduber and Ro-
sindo Nicolaas (Secretary).
Alex Hoo is a senior engin-
eer in the Technical Depart-
ment with over 8 years of ser-
vice. He received his higher
education at the Illinois Insti-
tute of Technology, U.S.A.,
where he obtained a Bachelor's
degree in Chemical Engineer-
ing in 1962.
Once a high school student
himself, Alex won first prize
in a science fair while attend-
ing a college preparatory
school in Florida, U.S.A. His
project was a working model
of a crude distillation tower.
Dr. Waasdorp, who graduat-

ed from the University of Lei-
den, Holland, in 1948, is chief
physician at the Employee Cli-
nic. He has over 17 years of
service with the company.
With over 10 years of ser-
vice, Albert Eman is presently
head of the Communications
Section of the Public & Indus-
trial Relations Department. He
graduated from Tulane Univer-
sity, Louisiana, U.S.A., in 1958
with a Bachelor's degree in Bu-
siness Administration.
Lago's newest employee ser.
ving on the committee is Si-
mon Oduber, employed in
July, 1968. He is an engineer
in the Mechanical Department
and holds a Bachelor's degree
in Civil Engineering from
Clemson University, South Ca-
rolina, U.S.A., after graduating
in 1965.

Once It Starts,
Fire Prevention Week is be-
ing observed from October 5
to 11. Public attention is fo-
cused internationally on fire
safety during this period.
But the need for fire safety
awareness is constant, it's a
year.round effort.
How many disasters, loss of
property have not been caus-
ed by carelessness or inatten-
tion? It's easier to prevent a
fire than to put it out, perhaps
by quick action of many.
At home special attention
should be paid to fire starters:
matches, stoves, hot plates,
electrical appliances left un-
attended and lighted candles
that may fall or ignite nearby
flammable material.
Electrical circuits should be
checked regularly, gasoline in
cans or bottles should not be
left around the house and good
housekeeping should be prac-
ticed. But particularly child-
ren should not be allowed to
play with matches or light
fires, inside or outside the

safe fire prevention should be

life, that of others and pro-
In the community, there is
always a constant danger if
the fire safety rules are not
observed at service stations
while "putting a tiger" in your
tank. The vapor from gasoline
may be ignited by a lighted ci-
garette or a running motor. A
cigarette butt should not be
thrown just anywhere. It must
be extinguished first.
It was a bit of carelessness
that led to paying more atten-
tion to fire prevention. On a
warm Sunday evening of Oc-
tober 1871 a fire broke out at
a modest mid-west home. It did
not seem particularly threaten-
ing or uncontrollable. But it
Thirty hours later, 2,100
acres of Chicago was a black-
ened, smoldering waste. More
than 200 of its citizens had
perished, 100,000 were home-
less, almost 17,500 buildings
were in ruins.
Direct losses were $160,000,
000 and indirect costs incalcul-
able. To mark the Chicago
conflagration, Fire Prevention

Week is observed annually du-
ring the week containing Oc-
tober 9, its anniversary date.
As a reminder of the trage-
dy the observance of Fire Pre-
vention Day originated in 1911.
Fire Prevention Week was first
officially proclaimed in 1922.

Fire Prevention Week is a
time to remind us to constant-
ly check defenses against
fire in our homes, places of
work and in the community to
safeguard everyone against
the painful consequences of

Since October 14, 1959, he
has umpired some 600 games,
most of them in Aruba, others
in Curacao and Puerto Rico.
Next week he attains an-
other milestone in sports: his
tenth anniversary as AUSA
president. Since the AUSA
was founded in 1959, Mr. Cor-
net, a process clerk in Comp-
troller's-Office Services, has
been holding the presidency.
Mr. Cornet was introduced
to umpiring ten years ago by
Bobby Martin (former chair-
man of the Sport Park Board)
who asked him to help out with
the LSP games.

As a catcher, Mr. Comet
was familiar with the rules of
the game, but as he recalls,
he still felt "a bit funny" be-
hind the home plate.
Still vivid in his mind from
those days are the tremen-
dous pressures of having to
make on-the-spot decisions
which were not always well
received. "There are always
players who see things diffe-
rently," he says.

Does heckling from the spec-
tators bother him sometimes?
Not a bit. "I always call the
plays as I see them and leave
it at that," says. Coret flash-
ing a winning smile that is
sure to turn off any heckler.

is the competition between
the Shell-Curacao golf team
and the Aruba Golf Club team.
This year the Aruba Golf
Club was host to the Curacao
team during matches on Sep-

The Aruba team, consisting
of twelve players and two al-
ternates, won both matches
with a score of 10-8 (Satur-
day) and 23-13 (Sunday).
In the 16 tournaments held
since 1957 for the present ex-

New Radio Paging System Added to Lago's Communication Network

A supervisor tries to con-
tact the man handling local
purchases to get some rush or-
ders, but the man is not in
his office. Emergency repairs
are needed on a refinery unit,
but the supervisor cannot be
reached to move tradesmen to
the unit.
The answer to these pro-
blems is a little, compact radio
receiver (pager) measuring
514x2% x11/e inches, which lies
at the heart of the new Lago
paging system.
Installed to reach key men
and others who are seldom in
their office during the typical
work day, the paging system
permits mobility and constant
contact. About forty supervi-
sors use the paging units
which they carry like a pocket
When not at his desk, the
individual carrying the pager
can be reached by dialing a
sequence number on any La-
go telephone. The sequence
numbers are listed in the clas-
sified section of the Lago
phone book.
No matter where the pagee
is in his car, field, or office
- he is alerted by a shrill tone

when his number is dialed. Af-
ter being alerted, he pushes a
red ready-to-listen button on
his unit.
By pushing this button, he
is ready to receive the 1-min-
ute voice message from the
other party. Because of the
high tone output the pager
can be heard even in the noi-
siest areas.
The paging system is an-
other effort to modernize La-
go's communication system

talkies and other radio equip-

Sheer satisfaction is reflected on the faces of nine

six-graders of

Seroe Colorado School

and their teacher after a refinery tour with Sev Luydens of PR/IR

Nine Six-Graders Get Closer Look

Of the World's Largest Refinery
From the little height where slides of Aruba and Lago at
the Seroe Colorado School is the club and received explana-
situated, an impressive view tions and replies to their ques-
can be had of the refinery, tions.
The students of this school

have grown accustomed to this
sight, yet they find it intri-
guing, more so because "dad-
dy" works there.

The gigantic oil Industry
which predominates the Aru-
ban eastern skyline has on
many occasions awakened
their curiosity and stirred their
imagination. Often they have
marveled at the thought of
getting a closer look.

Recently, in a letter to Seve-
riano Luydens of PR/IR, Leif
Eriksen requested a refinery
tour on behalf of the sixth
grade of the Seroe Colorado

Leif, who is the son of Erik
Eriksen of Process- Oil Move-
ments, wrote: "We are study-
ing Aruba, and the refinery is
an important part of our stu-
dy. Please name time and date
within the next two weeks if

The refinery tour was made
possible a week later when
nine students accompanied by
their teacher, Miss Dorothy E.
Lovett, met Sev Luydens at
the Esso Club.
The students viewed various

Afterwards they boarded
the bus along with a group of
tourists and visited various in-
teresting areas of the refinery.
The refinery visit culminat-
ed at the club where the stu-
dents were treated to refresh-
ments and souvenirs.

Later in "thank you" letters
to Mr. Luydens the students
gave their impressions of their
tour. Most of them had discov-
ered that the tanks of various
colors and types contained dif-
ferent products. One student
in particular was surprised
that the products had to be
tested at the Laboratories be-
fore export.

Their visit, tour booklet and
write-up of the island have
certainly helped enhance their
knowledge of Aruba and its
main industry: Lago. Now the
refinery no longer seems so
mysterious and "forbidden" as

Pedro Arends Is an ICS Graduate

Of Mechanical Engineering Course

On September 25, Pedro I.
Arends of Mechanical Depart-
ment was awarded a diploma
from International Correspon-
dence Schools for completing
a course in Mechanical Engin-
eering. The presentation was
made by Mechanical Manager
K. L. Weill in his office in the
presence of Mechanical Divi-
sion Supt. R. E. Boyack.
Pedro is the first supervisor
in the Mechanical Department
to complete the course as part
of the Lago-sponsored training
A regional supervisor in the
M&C Division, he started the
course voluntarily late 1965
along with a group of the Me-
chanical Department. Since
then four employees have com-
pleted the course.
They are: Victor Helder, Ra-
mon Hodge, Marciano Roberts
and Angel M. Every.
The selected units course
gives the student practical un-
derstanding of the basic Me-


chanical Engineering founda-
tion as applied in Lago's ope.
Pedro, who is a 1947 Lago
Vocational School graduate,
says he dedicated altogether
1100 hours on the 54 assign-
ments of the home study cour-
se. During one year he slowed
down considerably due to lack
of time, but for the past 1
years he has been studying an
average of two hours a day.
Determination and perseve-
rance crowned his efforts with
good grades. He earned most-
ly A's and B's.
Presently acting M&C Train-
ing Coordinator, Pedro also
took an ICS course in Indus-
trial Foremanship, studying on
his own.
He completed this course in
October 1965. He also has se-
veral certificates of various
Lago-sponsored courses, includ-
ing Process Training, First
Aid, Fire Training and Effect-
ive Management.
