Scrap Metal Sales to Employees Resumed
For the past months, scrap sales to employees have been dis-
continued at the Salvage Yard. The reason for this is that the
former salvage storage space is needed for HDS-II tank con-
struction, and we will not have any space for future stock piling
of scrap.
From the time that sales at the Salvage Yard were discon-
tinued, we have received many requests to provide an oppor-
tunity for our employees and annuitants to continue to purchase
Since we do not have the facilities to handle future scrap
sales ourselves, we have arranged for our employees and an-
nuitants to purchase from a contractor, the Aruba Metals Com-
pany, at their Balashl Scrap Yard, for the same price that was
paid for scrap formerly sold at the Lago Salvage Yard.
The conditions under this new arrangement are as follows:
1. Sales will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of
each month. The first sale will be on Saturday, May 13, 1972.
2. Sales time will be between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 1100
a.m. on the two days mentioned above employees and
annuitants will not be permitted to buy at any other time.
3. All purchases will be on a cash basis.
4. Each employee and annuitant will be limited to 1500 kgs. of
ferrous scrap at each purchase.
5. The sales price for ferrous scrap metal will be FIs. 50.- per
1000 kgs. (the same price as at Lago Salvage Yard).
6. Non-ferrous and other alloy metals scrap, if and when avail-
able, may also be purchased in small quantities at the pre-
vailing prices at time of purchase.
7. Sales on the above basis, will be to Lago employees and
annuitants only. Employees and annuitants will be expected
to identify themselves by showing their badges.

Lago plan to continue refin-
ing oil on Aruba? Or at least,
how many more years does
Lago plan to continue work-
Ing in Aruba?
A. It is not possible at this time
to say how many more years
Lago will continue to refine
oil in Aruba. But considering
the world situation concern-
ing the market and demand
for oil products, we are of
the opinion that Lago's fu-
ture has a solid base.

Q. Why doesn't Lago build a
club for employees in Oran-
A. Lago has already agreed to
contribute up to FIs. 50,000
to the construction of an
Employee Recreation Center
by I.O.W.U.A., which build-
ing is at present under con-

Q. Starting 1972, will Lago have
Jobs for Mulo-A graduates?
Why doesn't Lago give cour-
ses for MULO-A graduates,
bookkeeping, and later on
they can get a job at Lago?
Why only opportunities for
MULO-B graduates or Tech-
nical students?
A. Lago's operations are techni-
cal in nature, and as such
require the type of skills that
are taught in schools with a

technical or scientific orien-
For this reason, most of the
people we have hired recent-
ly are graduates of the is-
land's technical schools, and
these people have been ex-
posed to our Pre-Employ-
ment Preparatory Program.
Occasionally, we do hire a
clerical employee with a
Mulo background, but our
need for people of this type
is so minimal that we can-
not justify a special training

0. Why can't Lago pay a little
more attention to the many
"back" patients working for
her and see to It that the
doctors call up as many of
said patients as possible to
see the "back" specialist
upon his yearly visit to the
Island, or Is It to Lago?

A. Apparently the questioner is
referring to a neurosurgeon
who periodically visits Aru-
ba. The Lago Medical De-
partment gladly refers to this
specialist any case that may
be helped by his opinion or
treatment. However, it should
be understood that many
"back" cases are not of a
neurosurgical type, and would
not be benefited by such a

0. Is It true that there Is a ru-
mor outside that Lago Is
planning to make assistants
and operators CR? Is that
true, yes or no?
A. Although the question asks
if there is a rumor we as-
sume that the question is in-
tended to be whether there
is any truth in the rumor.
Some refineries have chief
operators who are manage-
ment people but none that
we know of have all assis-
tants and operators CR. La-
go does not plan to make
all assistants and operators

Lago's New Fire Truck Is First

With 54-foot "Aer-O-Squrt" Boom

The latest addition to Lago's
Industrial Services Fire Section
is a 1000-gallon-per-minute Air
Foam Pumper which is equipped
with a 54-ft. articulated "Aer-
O-Squrt" boom. Installed on a
turntable and hydraulically ope-
rated, the boom can rotate a
full circle and can rapidly and
efficiently provide a master
stream of foam or water to fight
fires that are hard to get at,
over and in elevated pipe banks,
floating roof tanks and other
high locations where hydrocar-
bon leaks might require appli-
cation of water fog to prevent
fire. With a vantage height of
54 ft and an operating pressure
of 200 p.s.l.g., the nozzle can be
controlled electrically from the
rear panel to provide the re-
quired fog or straight stream
The new pumper truck, the
first of Lago's fire trucks with
the articulated boom, has a ca-
pacity of 750 gallons of foam
with proportioning capabilities
to generate 3, 4 and 6%/o foam.

Auxiliary water connections at
the rear will permit using the
boom to provide cooling water
at the same time foam can be
generated and discharged
through the normal 2-1/2-inch
discharge outlets.
The boom (called Squrt by its
manufacturer, the Snorkel Fire
Equipment Company) can be
fitted either with a foam or wa-
ter nozzle.
The truck body and motor,
supplied by International Har-
vester, the fire equipment from
National Foam Company, and
the Squrt jointly cost approxi-
mately FIs. 100,000. This mo-
dern fire truck replaces an ol-
der-type pumper and again
brings the total mobile fire
equipment at Lago to nine.
"With this new fire truck, La-
go's firefighters now have a unit
capable of placing water or
foam where it is needed most,
where it will do the most good,
reach locations that are inac-
cessible to other mobile units,"
says Fire Chief Peter Storey.

New feature is articulated boom, shown here in action.
