II Popular Art Exhibition Exceeds

Last Year's in Number and Quality

A large crowd streamed into
the Sociedad Bolivariana Club
on Saturday, November 11, to
view the hundreds of art works
on display in the II Exhibition of
Popular Art.
The official opening, which
took place at 5:30 p.m., was
preceded by a musical and
dance program in front of the
building with the performance of
the Invaders Steel Orrhestra and
an adult group and youth group
of the Aruba School of Dance
and Ballet. This was followed by
a short speech by the Head of
the Department of Culture &
Education, Mr. Hubert Booi, who
thanked the participants, and all
who contributed towards the
success of the exhibition.
Organized for the second con-
secutive year, the exhibition this
time drew 435 works of art from
148 amateur artists. (This com-
pares with 309 entries by 125 ar-
tists in 1971). The entries include
pen and ink drawings, oil paint-
ings, decoupage, collage, need-
lecrafts, ceramic work and ela-

borate handicrafts using a wide
variety of materials, such as:
cork, egg shells, macaroni, lea-
ther, clothes' pins, beans and
even hair!
The exhibition, which not only
surpasses expectations in num-
ber but also in quality, continues
attracting many visitors daily
from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. It will re-
main open to the public through
Sunday, November 19.
Just like last year, there are
prizes available for the three
best art works selected by pop-
ular vote. The prizes of Fis. 500,
FIs. 250 and FIs. 150, respec-
tively, have been donated by
Lago this year.

Management Answers Your Questions

For Answers: Dial S For Questions: Dial 3500

Q. I would like to know If writ-
Ing of "safety talks" is a duty
of all Process operators?

A. Giving safety talks is consi-
dered to be a duty of process
operators, but it is more than
that. The operator is regard-
ed as a leader by his crew,
and it is the responsibility of
every leader, in any situation,
to assure the safety of those
he leads. Our operators, in
making safety talks to their
crew, should regard this as
a privilege rather than a duty.

O. Some time ago we were able
to see with our own eyes
the two flares of Lago, and
we could read Lago's propa-
ganda to fight "air pollution"
in Aruba. But, now my ques-
tion is this, if Lago really
wants to fight air pollution in
Aruba, why doesn't Lago
burn low sulfur fuel in La-
go's furnaces?

A. There are two major reasons
why we do not burn low sul-
fur fuel in Lago's furnaces.
First, it is not necessary to
do so and, second, it is eco-
nomically unacceptable. Now
a word of explanation on
these two points. When we
say it is unnecessary to burn
low sulfur fuel here, it is be-
cause our stacks discharge
high into the atmosphere
where winds blow the fumes
rapidly out to sea and away
from our populated areas.
The burning of low sulfur
fuels is required only in
highly industrialized areas
which are densely populated
and where the fumes norm-
ally do not dissipate because
of stagnant air. So our ef-
forts have been to minimize
smoke from our furnaces and
carry any fumes safely out to
sea. To ensure this, we have
built taller stacks, installed
fuel gas scrubbers, and plac-
ed smokeless tips on our

flares, to name a few of the
larger projects. In addition,
of course, we continuously
monitor the air in and around
the refinery with recording
instruments to insure that air
quality is at all times accep-
table from a health stand-
Concerning the second point
on the economic aspect of
burning low sulfur fuel, this
fuel is expensive when com-
pared to our normal fuels.
Our ability to burn high sul-
fur fuel is a major competi-
tive advantage over other
refiners, many of which are
now burning lower sulfur
fuels because they are locat-
ed in areas with stagnant air.
In fact, if we were restricted
in our ability to burn high
sulfur fuels, Lago's operations
would barely be profitable.
Our very existence as a ma-
jor refinery would be at stake
in the event that we had to
continuously burn low sulfur

0. How many Esso companies
are there in the world?

A. There are about 50 major
Jersey (Esso) affiliates
throughout the world, plus
many more wholly or partly
owned smaller companies.

Q. Why can't Management raise
the "maximum thrift loan" a
little more so that one can
get a little more money to
help out so that you don't
have to go and borrow from
another firm or bank, spoil
your situation, while you have
your own money In the Thrift

A. Present loan regulations per-
mit a participant to borrow
up to six months' salary and
in special cases an additio-
nal six months to liquidate
mortgage, purchase, con-
struct or renovate his house.
These maximums already
have an adverse effect on
employee take-home pay. In-
creasing the maximum would
only tend to increase this
adverse effect.

P. Mi kier sabi si skirblmento dl
"safety talk" ta un deber pa
tur operadornan dl Process?
C. Dunamento di "safety talk"
ta consider como un deber
di process operators, pero e
ta mas cu esey. E operator
ta ser mira como un lider di
su grupo, y ta e responsabili-
dad di cada lider, den cual-
kier situation, pa asegura
seguridad di esnan cu e ta
guia. Nos operatornan, den
conducimento di "safety
talk" na nan grupo, master
mira esaki como un privile-
gio y no como un obligacion.
P. Poco tempo nos par a lesa y
nos par a welta cu nos wo-
we e dos flarenan na Lago,
y por a tende Lago su pro-
paganda dl ta bring "air
pollution" na Aruba. Pero, mi
pregunta ta, si en verdad La-
go kier bring "air pollu-
tion" na Aruba, pakiko Lago
no ta kima "low sulfur fuel"
den su fornunan na Lago?
C. Tin dos motibo principal pa-
kiko no ta kima "low sulfur
fuel" den Lago su fornunan.
Primeramente, no ta necesa-
rio pa haci esey y, segundo,
e ta unacceptable economica-
mente. Awor un palabra di
splicacion tocante di e dos
puntonan aki. Ora cu nos
bisa cu no ta necesario pa
kima "low sulfur" aki, esey
ta pasobra nos stacknan ta
descarga halto den atmos-
fera caminda bientonan ta
supla e humanan rapidamen-
te afor pa lama y pafor di
lugarnan pobla. E kimamento
di "low sulfur fuels" ta ser
requeri solamente den lugar-
nan altamente industrializA
cualnan ta hopi pobla y ca-
minda e humanan normal-
mente no ta plama pa motibo
di aire cu no ta circula. Pe-
sey nos esfuerzonan ta pa
reduci huma for di nos for-
nunan y hiba sin peligro cual-
kier human pa lama. Pa ase-
gura esaki, nos a traha
stacknan mas halto, nos a
install "fuel gas scrubbers",
y a pone boquera pa contro-
la huma ariba nos "flare-
nan", pa nombra algun di e
proyectonan mas grand.

Ademas, naturalmente, con-
stantemente nos ta test a
aire den y rond refineria cu
instrumentonan di midi pa
asegura cu e calidad di aire
tur ora bai ta acceptable for
di punto di bista di salubri-
dad. Concerniendo e segundo
punto tocante di a aspecto-
nan economic di kimamen-
to di "low sulfur fuel", e fuel
aki ta caro ora cu compa-
re'le cu combustiblenan nor-
mal. Nos abilidad pa kima
"high sulfur fuel" ta un ven-
taha principal cu ta competi
cu otro refinerianan, hopi di
nan cual awor ta kimando
"low sulfur fuels" pasobra
nan ta situd den lugarnan cu
tin aire cu no ta circula. En
realidad, si nos ta limit den
nos abilidad pa kima "high
sulfur fuels", Lago su ope-
racionnan apenas Io a ser
ventahoso. Nos mera exis-
tencia como un refineria
principal lo ta un riesgo den
caso cu nos mester a kima

U.S. Astronaut Cooper Guest of Honor at Opening of New Airport Terminal

(Continued from page 1)
to use the new platform which
can accommodate five DC-8 jets
and four other planes, also
brought several Ministers and
other guests from Curaqao,
among whom Ministers J. F.
Tromp and D. G. Croes. The lat-
ter as Minister of Economic Dev-
elopment on behalf of the Cen-
tral Government transferred the
building to the Island Govern-
ment by handing a key to Lt.
Governor O. S. Henriquez.
Adding prominence to the oc-
casion were guests of honor As-
tronaut Gordon Cooper and
Mrs. Cooper. Colonel Cooper
was the first astronaut to stay in
space for over 34 hours, while
making 22 orbits in May 1963.
In a subsequent space flight, he
spent 8 days in orbit.
The speakers during the in-
auguration included Ministers
Tromp and Croes, Lt. Governor
O. S. Henriquez, Alderman Vir-
gilio Kock and Astronaut Coo-
With the added facilities, the
new terminal building is one of
the best in the Caribbean area
and is capable of quickly hand-
ling the huge line of tourists
from jumbo jets. It is the largest
in capacity in the Netherlands
Antilles and has the longest
landing area in the Caribbean
(3500 meters).
The two-story building, with a
six-story-high control tower, in-
cludes several new features
compared with the old terminal
building that has been in serv-
ice since 1950.
The spacious Central Hall,
which has a floor space of 3000
square meters, contains 26
counters for the airline compa-
nies through which some 800
passengers per hour can be
handled. There are also 8 immi-
gration desks and two customs
control desks, a post office, a
fountain, and seats for 80 per-
sons in this hall.
The air-conditioned Departure
Hall on the first floor covers an
area of 800 sq. meters with cap-
acity for 200 seats, for stores, a
bar, and a customs counter.
The Arrival Hall has a floor
space of 360 square meters with
12 immigration desks, 20 seats
and a first-aid room.
The Luggage Hall on the west
side has an area of 2000 square
Meters and contains two lug-

gage transporters, five customs
conveyors, a tourist information
desk and 8 hot lines with hotels.
Here 355 passengers can be
handled in about 20 minutes,
when maximum personnel is
On the second floor there is
an air-conditioned Public Wait-
ing Room with capacity for 480
seats, and a "wave-out" terrace
which can accommodate 130
persons. There is also a Lounge
and bar with 40 seats and a res-
taurant with seating capacity for
125 persons, and a soda bar.
The second floor also houses
several offices for the airline
management personnel, the is-
land administration offices, and
a crew room on the east side,
and central government offices
for customs and immigration per-
sonnel on the west side.
The total parking area can
accommodate about 675 cars,
while 560 stalls are reserved for
the public who must pay park-
ing fees.
Work on the building began
in 1970 by prime contractor Pe-
trona & Croes, which erected
the building, while Elga Aruba
installed the air-conditioning
equipment, and Antem N.V.
handled the electrical installa-
The airport project was built
at a cost of NAFIs. 6,700,000
while the inventory had cost
FIs. 450,000. The total project
was financed by the European
Economic Community. The
building was designed by and
built under supervision of the
Netherlands Airport Consultants.
The new terminal building of-
fers employment to 320 persons,
including 20 for janitorial serv-
