All these young men have
one thing in common. They
qualified for this scholarship
as a math or science graduate
of MULO-B, HBS-B, UTS or
equivalent schools with out-
standing scholastic perform-
ance and were favorably re-
commended by their schools.
In addition, they scored high
on the tests given at Lago,
will reside in Aruba for a con-
siderable time and will make
a career at Lago.
Designed to produce more

meet the company's require-

expenses: from full cost of
education, including room and
board fees, hospital and medic-

also covers other expenses and
transportation between Nether-
lands Antilles and college lo-

Where Micrometer Can't Reach

A special steel tape, called
Pi-Tape, has been introduced
recently to Mechanical mach-
inists. By wrapping the tape
around any cylindrical object,
such as a machine shaft, the
diameter can be read directly
on the tape. It will give a dia-
meter reading to an accuracy
of one-thousandth of an inch.
One advantage of the Pi-
Tape is that it gives an aver-
age diameter reading. By us-
ing a dial indicator, the varia-

chanical-M & C gives a little

co teoria tocante e Pi-Tape.

tion above and below average
can be easily obtained, so that
the maximum and minimum
diameters around any cylin-
drical object can be deter-
Another advantage of the
tape is that because of its
flexibility and size, it can be
used for measuring diameters
of certain objects without
moving them from their loc-
ation and where a micrometer
cannot be used due to insuffi-
cient access room.
Originally designed for use
in the aircraft industry for
measuring thin-wall cylinders,
the Pi-Tape not only facilitates
O.D. measurements, but also
I.D. measurements can be ta-
ken by just adding 0.020" to
compensate for twice the
thickness of the tape. The
tapes are available in a var-
iety of lengths and also in me-
tric units.
A demonstration on the use
of the Pi-Tape was given re-
cently to a group of Mechani-
cal tradesmen by Malcolm G
Murray, senior engineer in

that construction has been in
progress for over 18 months,
with scheduled completion in
the second quarter of 1971.
Lago's president further re-
vealed that about 1,800 wor-
kers are now working for the
principal contractor, Parsons
Corporation, and its nine sub-
contractors. It is expected that
employment will reach a peak
of over 2,000 during the next
six months.
He also mentioned that Aru-
ba's economy has been further
boosted by an estimated Fls.
14,800,000, the total amount
paid in wages, salaries and lo-
cal purchases so far by the
HDS contractors. This amount
will increase substantially the
next 12 months, he added.

Largest Tower Reaches Destination

At HDS Vacuum
Arriving at the HDS Pier
on June 18 was the largest va-
i cuum tower for the Hydrode-
sulfurization Project and of
Lago refinery.
Perhaps the largest vessel
ever transported by sea, the
vacuum tower (measuring 119
feet long, about 36 feet in dia-
meter and weighing 575 short
tons) came all the way from
Japan after a six-week voyage.
Supplied by Ishikawajima-
Harima Heavy Industries Co.,
I Ltd., the tower was the only
deck load of the LST-type
ship "Lady Sophie" of the Van
S der Laan shipping company.
I The unloading of this giant
\ tower from the ship took
about five working days. With
the ship moored bow to the
dock and bow gates open, a
ramp or access road was built

Careful coordination between hoisting gin poles and trans-
porter was required to set vacuum tower in place. In lower
picture, the tower rests on a 30 ft. high supporting structure.
Tower ta ser hiza pa sosega riba estructura di 30 pia haltu
na sitio di Planta Desulfurador.

Pipestill No. 21
to the ship's deck By power-
ful jacks the tower on deck was
lifted so that one transport-
er could support the rear end
and one transporter was in-
serted under the front part. It
then took some eight hours to
move the tower to shore.
After the two 180 feet high
gin poles were installed at Unit
21, the transporters moved
the tower to its base. Here the
tower was lifted high enough
to permit a 30-foot high steel
support to be shifted under-
neath, raising the vacuum to-
wer as a conspicuous refinery
landmark to a height of 140
This tower, costing about
Fls. 750,000, also represents a
bit of international cooperat-
ion. Designed by Parsons' per-
sonnel in Frankfurt, Germany,
it was built in Japan. It was
transported by a vessel of a
Dutch company and installed
by Rigging International from
the U.S.A., with the help of
Antillean workers.

causes a series of counter cur-

A special design of the ma-
