April 7, 1972

Lago Names B.
To put major emphasis on its
efforts to prevent pollution, Lago
has created the new post of En-
vironmental Advisor. Effective
April 1, 1972, Mr. Bennett S.
Whitney, Lago's Division Super-
intendent of Laboratories for the
last six years, was appointed to
this position.
For many years Lago has
IL~m slr

been concerned with the im-
portance of maintaining in Aru-
ba a clean and healthy environ-
ment. This is beneficial not only
for those who work and live on
this island but also for the
thousands of visitors who vaca-

S. Whitney to New Post of Environmental Advisor

tion here every year.
As the refinery continued to
expand and increase in comple-
xity, so have the problems as-
sociated with pollution of the
sea and air. In the face of this
new development, Lago man-
agement recognized the need
for the services of a man work-
ing full time on pollution pro-
blems to ensure the preserva-
tion of our environment.
In former years matters of
pollution and oil loss were
handled by Lago's Oil Conser-
vation Committee on a part time
basis. With Lago's increasing
concern for pollution, this com-
mittee was reorganized In 1970
and a new committee, the En-
vironmental Control & Oil Loss
Committee, was established. It
is under the chairmanship of
Lago's Vice-President and con-
tinues to operate to date.
Mr. Whitney has many years
of experience in the field of
pollution and oil loss control.
He was a member of the Oil
Conservation Committee and its
chairman for four years. In ad-
dition to being Secretary of the
Environmental Control & Oil
Loss Committee, Mr. Whitney is
a member of the Regional En-
vironmental Conservation Com-
mittee, as well as the Humble
Refining Effluent Cleanliness
Lago's new Environmental Ad-
visor has the following respon-
sibilities: advise management on
all matters pertaining to envi-
ronmental control, monitor refi-
nery operations with regard to
cleanliness of the sea and air,
maintain contact with local
authorities on matters of envi-
ronmental conservation, and
develop long and short range
plans to protect the environ-
To date Lago has spent sev-
eral millions of guilders on pro-
jects for maintaining the clean-
liness of the pea and air. These
are: installing floating booms In
the San Nicolas Harbor to con-
tain oily effluents along with a
skimming and recovery system,

improving the major refinery ef-
fluent separator (system for se-
parating oil from seawater),
smokeless tips on all refinery
flares and roofs for seven large

fuel tanks.
There are a number of other
projects for environmental con-
trol in progress or in the plan-
ning stage.

Some tinngs do stick in tme
minds of people. And one thing
Esso Netherlands Antilles, Ltd.
(the Esso Marketing company in
the Netherlands Antilles) wants
to see stick in the minds of
everyone is safe driving. That's
why it decided, as a continua-
tion of its 1971 Traffic Safety
Campaign, to issue some 12,000
reminders on traffic safety in
the form of bumper stickers.
The twelve different stickers
represent the winning slogans
for the 1971 Traffic Safety Slo-
gan Contests which Esso Mark-
eting sponsored to focus atten-
tion on safe driving.
The slogans are printed in
bright colors, with red, green,
orange letters on blue back-
ground, and the sponsor's name
in white.
The multilingual motorists of
Aruba have three languages to
choose from, as three of the

slogans are in Paplamento, two
are in Dutch and seven are In
The bumper stickers are made
available free of charge at all
the ten Esso Servicenters on
the island. With a total of 12,000
stickers on hand (1000 for each
of the 12 slogans), practically
every car owner may get one.
These stickers will also be dis-
tributed at the Esso Servicenter
in Parera, Curagao.
However, the stickers are not
only for color display on cars.
Each slogan carries a message,
which may help eliminate pain,
suffering, financial and other
No matter how many warnings
there may be, it's up to each in-
dividual behind the wheel to
make a personal effort to heed
not only these twelve hints, but
all traffic rules, all the time!

Jobs which require moving,
installation or lifting of heavy
equipment are very frequent in
a large and modern refinery
such as ours. However, jobs of
this nature require a significant
amount of coordination, preci-
sion and safety awareness on
the part of skilled workers. When
the work involved is at unusual
elevations or in crowded quar-
ters, which tend to complicate
the situation, the need for these
talents become indispensable.

work involved the installation of
a two-ton smokeless flare tip

operation were Process-Light
Hydrocarbons, Process-Utilities,
Fire Department and Safety Di-

To make the lift possible, an
imported two-ton, 40-ft. boom
with see-saw and hoist tackle

Artifacts Indicate Early Indians

Also Lived Along
While strolling along the north
coast of Aruba, Sev Luydens of
PR/IR Department recently no-
ticed some spots along the
north coast dotted with many
fragments of sea shells, such
as whelks and conchs. Upon
further investigation, he found
some indications that these
spots must have been at least
a temporary habitation of the
early Indians. In addition to
numerous fragments of red clay
pots, he also found a stone im-
plement shaped like an ax.
When the Dutch Archeologist
Drs. E. H. J. Boerstra of the Ley-
den University of Holland made
a closer investigation, he con-
firmed the findings really origin-
ated from some Indian tribe who
had lived there maybe in the
Columbus or pre-Columbus era.
He also found some cutting tools
of the Indians made from

Mr. Boerstra has been as-
signed to Aruba for two to
three years by the Dutch STI-
CUSA (Institute for Cultural Col-
laboration) to make investiga-
tions on Aruba and to study,
document and preserve what-
ever he can find in or above
ground about the early Aruba
Indians. He asks everyone who
finds any artifacts of Indian or
other origin to advise the Bu-
reau of Culture & Educational
Development (Phone 3207) in
Oranjestad as soon as possible.
A very important thing with
every find, says Drs. Boerstra,
is to leave everything intact so
that the artifacts can be well
preserved by expert handling.

All the finds and documents
of Mr. Boerstra will be turned
over later to the Aruba Museum
that will be built at the Willem
III Tower in Oranjestad.

Drs. Boerstra shows Clive Lade of the Social Affairs Dept. an ax-

On two Sundays every month,
the cracking sounds and falling
victims east of Lago Heights
may be reminiscent of some
skirmishes, but the actual hap-
penings there are very peace-
ful. The sounds echo from the
skeet range of the Aruba Gun
Club south of the Aruba Flying
Club facilities. The victims: clay
At these facilities, ever since
k the Club was founded on Dec-
4 ember 7, 1939, the Aruba Gun
1 Club has been providing its
the mach- members this type of sport
which is practiced not only in
e mashln- Aruba, but around the world.
Usually some twenty of its pre-
sent 45 members spend those
Sunday mornings in skeet shoot-
ing. Anyone over 21 who is in-
terested in this type of sport
can apply for club membership.
The Club's range can accom-
modate a squad of five shooters
at a time, who are supervised
by a squad leader and score
keeper. The keyman in the
skeet shooting practices is the
operator of the semi-automatic
trap machines, which eject the
clay targets 20 to 30 feet in the
air and up to 200 feet away at
varying angles.

The guns are owned by the
Club and are provided, along
with targets and shells, for mem-
bers and their guests. A nominal
charge is made to cover the
cost of the shells and targets.
During the shooting sessions,
the Club has rigid rules for sa-
fety. Loading must be done at
the shooting posts. In all other
cases, the gun's chamber must
be left open and the barrel is to
be held pointed at the ground
or in the air: Also, for protecting
the ear drums, ear muffs are
Some of the Club's top marks-
men are Walter Terrell, current-
ly M&C Division Superintendent,
and Simon Dirkz, a Mechanical-
M&C supervisor.
The Aruba Gun Club, which
is affiliated with the Aruba Rifle
Association, has plans to build
two skeet ranges and two trap-
shooting ranges, both with auto-
matic trap machines. Also, the
area will be properly fenced in.
The board of the Aruba Gun
Club consists of Simon Dirkz,
chairman; Carmelo Lade, vice
chairman; Miguel Mansur, sec-
retary; Alex Marchena, treasurer;
Leonard A. Peterson and John
E. Yeamans, commissioners.
