managers of the winners,
their immediate supervisors
who assisted them, and two
CYI Committee members.
The highest single initial
award of Fls. 605 that even-
ing was presented to Domi-
nico Leest, an area supervisor
in Mechanical-M&C General.
His idea was to fabricate a
steel cradle to move heavy

A supplemental award of
Fls. 540 went to Eusebio Kool-
man, a tradesman A in Mech-
anical-Shop Zone. His idea,

return line of acid pumps No.
2650 and No. 2591 directly to
the Podbielnlak from the 4-
inch main acid line at the
Acid Treating Plant won Fls.
450. His second idea called for
extending the 2-inch Pod unit
rundown line presently tied in

nect it to Tank 600 overhead
line. For this idea he earned
Fls. 110, including a bonus of

tained to an announced CYI
problem area.
The idea of Engineering As-
sistant "A" B. R. van der Lin-
den of Mechanical-Engineering
earned him Fls. 240. He sug-
gested to improve all pumps
with large stuffing toxes
which use packing.

Juan C. Croes, an assistant
operator in Process-Light Hy-
drocarbons, suggested to in-
stall a 3-inch line with valves
and T-connection on pumps
1322 and 1323 at LEAR-1. He
was awarded Fls. 200.
An initial award of FIs. 185

award for his idea to install
two bench vises in the Mach-

Emiterio Croes

ine Shop's pump section.
Operator Antonio C. Geer-
man of Process-Light Hydro-
carbons suggested to install
an automatic pressure con-
troller to recycle reactor boos-
ter pumps No. 2323, 2324 and
2611 whenever the reactors
exceed normal operating pres-
sure. He earned Fls. 150 for
this idea.
The idea of Simon B. Webb,
a tradesman A in Mechanical-
Metal Section, called for re-
placing the steel scale on the
gasket cutter by a stainless
steel scale. His CYI award
was FIs. 135.

Girigorio Brion, bunkerman
I of Marketing, suggested to
replace the blind plate in the
12-inch lateral between diesel
tank 235 and fuel oil pump
2427 at the Oranjestad Bunk-
ering Terminal with a 12-inch
soft-seal valve. He earned
Fls. 130 in initial award.
The idea to install one air
filter pot east of No. 6 tar
box earned Fls. 100 for Al-
fredo Bareno, an advanced in-
strumentman of Mechanical-

Initial awards of FIs. 100
each went to Moises F. Kus-
mus, an engineering assistant
of Technical-Process Engin-
eering, and to Encarnaclon
Boekhoudt, an operator of
Process-Fuels Division. Mr.
Kusmus' idee called for in-
stalling a safety shower in the
Napacid Still area. His award
includes a Fls. 60 bonus as
the idea pertained to a prob-
lem area. Mr. Boekhoudt sug-
gested to extend the present
%-inch warm-up line on all
visbreaker charge pumps at
Combination Units 5-8.

Several improvements in
the mirror mounting and for

Annuitant's Widow Revisits Aruba; r

Dedicates Gift in Husband's Memory I

A special service was held
at the Seroe Colorado Com-
munity Church on Sunday
morning, October 11. On that
date, three stained-glass win-
dows, which were donated to
the church, were dedicated
during an impressive cere-
mony which began at 11:30.
Specially invited to this oc-
casion were the donors: Ma-
nuel Viana and Bob Steele,
both well-known local busin-
essmen, and Mrs. Florence
Wilken of the U.S.A.
Mrs. Wilken had traveled
all the way from Missouri to
dedicate her gift in memory
of her late husband, George
H. Wilken. Mr. Wilken had
been a shift foreman in the
High Pressure Stills when he
retired in 1947 after sixteen
years with Lago.
Way back in 1939, Mr. and
Mrs. Wilken helped found
what is now the Seroe Colo-
rado Community Church. As
one of the first American for-
eign staff families in the for-
mer Lago Colony, they lacked
many facilities, including a
place of worship.
The first services were held
in the Wilken's home which
stood on the site where the
General Office Building is
now located. Every Sunday,
Mr. Jack Emery, an ordained
minister who worked in the
Stills, conducted services in
the living room. The bedrooms
were rearranged for Sunday
School and special bible classes.
Later on, when the com-

Mrs. Wilken and family with Reverend J. Calitis pose on
doorsteps of church she and her late husband helped found.

entrada di kerki cu el y su difunto esposo a yuda lanta.

munity became larger, it was
decided to build a church and
send for a full-time minister
from the U.S.A. The Wilkens
once more took the initiative
to collect signatures from the
residents who agreed to pay
the minister's salary.
Now, thirty-one years later,
Mrs. Wilken sat in the church
with her daughter, Mrs. Claire
Doering, her son-in-law Lloyd,
and grandchildren David, Ja-
mes, Deborah and Mark. One
of the most significant mom-
ents for her and her family
was to witness 20-month old
Mark being christened at the
baptismal font which she and
her husband had donated to
the church when it was built.
The baptismal water had also
a special significance: it was
the water which she person-
ally took from the Jordan
River during her visit to the
Holy Land in 1964 and which
she carefully conserved over
the years.
A graceful lady in her sev-
enties, Mrs. Wilken thinks of
Aruba as home. She is happy
to see the many changes, as
they mean progress for the
island. On her previous visit
in 1952 she stayed with her
daughter, Jane Kurtz, who
has since returned to the USA.
During her recent visit, Mrs.
Wilken was the guest of Mr.
and Mrs. Peter Storey at
Bungalow 1504. Incidentally,
Mrs. Storey was one of Mrs.
Wilken's first Sunday School
pupils in the early thirties.

PCAR Sprinkler

With New, More
Approximately 700 fog noz-
zles of the PCAR fire water
sprinkler system are now be-
ing replaced by a new type of
"Bete" spiral fog nozzles. The
existing nozzles clog easily
and require frequent mainten-
ance. The new nozzles of the
non-clogging type are consid-
erably more effective in that
they provide a wider spray,
thus increasing fire safety.
They also require less main-
Some 636 of the spiral noz-

spaced so as to provide effec-

Efficient Nozzles
on ground level, sixteen of the
large type spiral nozzles have
been installed, while on the
slurry exchangers on the first
floor, forty of the new large
nozzles will replace the exist-
ing ones.

The PCAR sprinkler system
is operated by three fire
pumps, connected to eight
mains each rising to different

Work on the nozzle replace-
ment job was started on Au-
