NAMES IN THE NEWS





A Company employee, Sergeant Nicholas Oreskz
of Stanco, receives the Congressional Medal ot
Honor from President Harry Truman Octobr~ 12
before highest-ranking Army and Navy officers.
He won the nation’s highest honor for an exploit
as a platoon leader with General Patton's army
in Germany. A few days after receiving the me-
dal, he met with the directors of S. O. (N.J.},
who presented him with a gold watch bearing
an inscription of the presentation.



Service awards last month included one for 20
years to Fred Penney, assistant division super+
intendent who is one of the ‘’oidest-timers.”
Originally employed by Mexpet at Carteret, New
Jersey on May 27, 1925, he came to Aruba June
®, 1927 as superintendent, and later for many
years was general foreman of Receiving & Ship-
ping.





Canadian Gold Interests
To Operate in Aruba

The visit of Canadian mining experts
to Aruba about a year ago has develop-
ed into the formation of a company
that will begin gold mining operations
here for the first time in 25 years, ac-
cording to a business news bureau in th2
United States.

The company, which is capitalized in
the Curacao Territory at 3,000,000 Ca-
nadian dollars, believes that operations
may still be profitable if modern me-
thods are employed. Arrangements are
being made to ship to Aruba machinery
and other equipment now in their pos-
session,

Gold was first discovered here about
1825, and for the next 100 years the
industry was never very profitable for
any company that attempted it: The
only one that made a return on its in-
vestment started in 1908, smelting ore
brought in by individual miners and
paying according to the amount of
gold found.

Mining of any variety was abandoned
with the advent of the daily wage scale
brought by the petroleum industry in
1927. Since then the picturesque ruins
have gathered rust and romance.

The revival of Curacao Territory's
sustantial pre-war tourist trade became
a possibility last month with the lifting
of wartime restrictions on visitors.

Tourists and businessmen again need
cnly a passport and vaccination certifi-
cate for entry.

New Work-Pay; Schedule Returns Plant

Following discussions in staff meetings and with employee representative
committees, wages and hours throughout the plant were revised November 1. A
uniform working schedule was adopted, and a 15 per cent general increase was
made in all base rates with the exception of some which were recognized to be

out of line.

In the new work schedule, all operations on a 48-hour straight-day or irre-
gular schedule revert to a 45-hour week, with minor exceptions. (Those emplo-
yees previously on 44 or 45 hours continue on that schedule). All operations
working a 50.4 hour shift revert to a 48-hour shift schedule, while those pre-
viously working a 48-hour shift continue on that basis.

ee S Earnings Adjusted
To Bayway-Bayonne Rates

Following the policy of relating ad-
justments in earnings for Foreign Staff
employees in Aruba to those at Bayway
and Bayonne, the Company announced
the increase of base wages and salaries
by 15 per cent, and at the same time
pay schedules were adapted to the re-
vised working schedule.

The change was made effective Sep-
tember 9, the same date as the change
to peacetime wages and hours was made
at Bayway-Bayonne.

Long Vacations Provided
For S. & R. Employees
By New Vacation Policy

Compary and Employees Maintain
Savings Plan for Financial Aid
After discussion with the Employees’
Advisory Committee last month an ex-
panded vacation policy for Staff and
Regular employees was announced, with
the effective date placed at September
1. The new plan will not only increase
the length of vacations, facilitating tra-
vel or longer relaxation from work, but
will provide financial assistance. A vo-
luntary savings plan will operate, in
which the Company will match on an
equal basis the amounts regularly con-
tributed to the plan by the employee.

Under the previous arrangement no
vacation was given until the secona
year of employment, and a maximum of
two weeks was given in any year. Un-
der the new plan an employee receives
one week after his first year of emplov-
ment. Two weeks vacation is given after
the second and third year, and four
weeks after the fourth year. Thereaf-
ter the employee has a four-week vaca-
tion every fourth year, with two weeks
during the intervening years.

The savings plan provides for volun-
tary contributions of one, two or three
per cent of regular earnings by em-
ployees, with the Company matching
these amounts equally. The total of his
own and Company contributions is re-
turned to the employee when he takes
his long vacation every fourth year,
providing a worthwhile sum to assist iti
the costs of the vacation.

(If an employee is terminated through resig-
nation or discharge, he receives his own contri-
bi-ions with interest. If terminated by lay-off,
cal discharge, retirement or death, he ¥
ves the Company's contributions as well
his own. No withdrawals or loans may be made,

though contributions may be suspended for a
time).











At the same time the Company an-
nounced a one-time special grant to each
Staff and Regular employee at the time
he first takes his long vacation. This will
be an amount equal to 16-2/3 per cent of
his contributions to the Lago Thrift
Fund during a maximum of four years
preceding his long vacation (or for what-
ever lesser period he has been a Thriit
Plan participant.) This special grant,
given only once, will assist in providing

Caesar de Souza points to damage done in his
room during an electrical storm last month.
Caesar de Souza works in the Power-

house, hence can be assumed to be

fairly familiar with electricity. There’s

a limit to which such familiarity should

go, though, as he said when a bolt of

lightning came into his Lago Heights
room and sat down with him during one
of last month's electrical storms.

He was sitting in his room in the
Bachelor Quarters when suddenly there
was a flash and his radio sat there smo-
king and useless. The lightning had tra-
veled along the aerial wire, through the
door frame and into the radio (now
for sale very cheap). Evidence of the
force of the charge is shown in the pic-
ture of the blackened and battered
doorway. (Photograph by Rajroop)

| Wages and Hours Changed To Meet Current Conditions

to Peacetime Basis

Changes in Hours Wages, and
Vacation Plan Announced for
Staff and Regular Employees

To assist in meeting rising living
costs, and to maintain "take-home pav’
after the reduction of hours to a 45 and
48-hour schedule, effective November 1
ell base rates for Staff «and Regular
employees were increased 15 per cent.

Hourly rates were rounded out to the
nearest half-ceat upward, and all 44, 45,
and 48-hour rates were rounded out to
the nearest five guilders upward.

At the same time, the vacation policy
was broadened to give longer vacations
at certain intervals, and to provide finan-
cial assistance that will facilitate travel
or otherwise aid in the increased time
away from work. (See below for details
of this policy).

A limited number of exceptions to the
general increases include certain hourly
and monthly rates which the manage-
ment considers are in excess of the pre-
sent maximum rate for the specific type
of work involved, and are recognized to
be out of line. Individual adjustments
will be made in some of these cases, but
in no case will an employee receive less
total earnings under the revised work-
ing schedule than he is now earning. In
the necessary adjustment of these in-
equalities, Management took the oppor-
tunity of correcting out-of-line rates at
a time when no employee would suffer
a reduction in earnings:

by the letter at right, from the Army's Engineer Office

In countless ways, ranging from the development of |

reached into the mass of war work to be done, and it

was natural that they should also contribute to this fi-

Lago Youth Wins Teagle Scholarship

Gene Kimler, who graduated from
Lago High School in June, was awarded
a scholarship at Cornell University by
the recently-formed Teagle Foundation,
according to word received here early
this month. He joins two men and six
women, representing the Jersey and
Delaware companies, Carter, Lago, and
S.0.D., who are the first winners of the
scholarships endowed by Walter C-
Teagle, retired board chairman of S.O.
Com (NiJ:)-

Gene, whose father works at the Pres-
sure Stills, proved himself a natural
leader during the junior and_ senior
years he spent in the high school here.
Scholastically he ranked in the upper
fifth of his class, and he took a promi-
nent part in many school and communi-
ty activities.

He was president of the Senior class
last year, and president of the Student
Advisory Committee. He played the
lead in the annual school play, and was
editor of the year book. He led the
organized flag-raising and lowering
which for a month commemorated Pre-
sident Roosevelt’s death. He was secre-
tary of the Sunday School class for high
school boys. He was an Eagle Scout,
and at the last Boy Scout Day he was
chosen to act as general manager of the
plant for the day: In all respects he
showed outstanding potentialities of
leadership, one of the qualities stressed
in making the scholarship awards,

Gene, who is 18, was born in Tampico,
Mexico, and later moved to the States.

The Teagle Scholarships have a mini-
mum value to cover tuition and fees,
and may include additional amounts for
personal expenses, depending on the
circumstances of the winners. The Foun-
dation places no obligation on the candi-
dates to follow any specific course of
study, nor to pursue their later careers
with the Company.

Organization Changes

Two changes of organization were
announced in the Industrial Relutions
Department last month. R. W. Stickel
has been promoted from training super-
visor to the position of assistant person-
nel manager, and will coordinate the
ectivities of the Employment and Train-
ing Divisions of the Personnel Depart-
ment. Frank Scott has been promoted
to the position of training supervisor,
and will be responsible for all activities
carried out by the Training Division.

Mr. Stickel came to Aruba January
1, 1939 as a student engineer. He was
promoted to training assistant in Sep-
tember 1939, and in June 1942, he be-
came assistant training supervisor. He
has been training supervisor since Ja-
nuary 5, 1944.

Mr. Scott, who has been assistant
training supervisor, arrived here in Sep-
tember 1944.

H. V. Locker was assigned to the
position of process foreman in the Light
Oils Finishing Division October 22, in
charge of distillation and chemical ope-
rations. He first came to Aruba in No-
vember, 1935 as a technical studert,
and transferred to Hydro-Poly as an
operator in September, 1938. In 1940
he became a shift foreman. Three years
later he transferred to T.S.D. as a che-
mical engineer, and had been a group
head since March of this year.

Effective November 1 C: J. Schwartz
became group head "'A”’ in charge of the
Process Design Group, replacing J. L.
Field who is transferring to the Creol2
Petroleum Corporation. Mr. Schwartz
came to Aruba in October 1935, as 2
technical student. A chemical engineer
since January, 1939, he became group
head "B” in June, 1945.

-News

The heroism of three crew members
of a Jersey Standard tanker, the S.S.
"Esso Little Rock”, was described in an
announcement by the War Shipping
Administration last month,

The incident concerned the rescue of
fallen Navy fliers by crew members of
the tanker. While the ship was en route
to the Pacific a message was dropped
to the bridge by a Navy PBY flying
boat, giving the position of a Catalina
bomber with a crew of eight aboard
which had been forced down in a heavy
sea, f

The "Esso Little Rock” cruised in the
vicinity of the position given until a flare
was sighted. Seven men off the tanker
manned a life boat and by skilful hand-
ling in the rough water accomplished
the rescue of the airmen who otherwise
would have perished.

It was during the rescue that the
three men mentioned in the announce-
ment distinguished themselves to the
extent they received the Meritorious
Service Medal of the Maritime Service.





After more than two years of study
of the Atlantic Coastal Plain region by
Standard Oil geologists, plans to drill
for oil on the barrier beach off the coast
of North Carolina have been announced
by the Standard Oil Company of New
Jersey. The wildeat well will be sunk
near the old Cape Hatteras lighthouse
which is about 160 air miles southeast
of Norfolk, Virginia.

If the Hatteras test proves the pre-
sence of oil in the Coastal Plain section,
incentive will be furnished for further
test drilling in the shallow water of the
Coastal Plain areas.

"A detached brain for explosive pro-
jectiles”, is the tag that was hung on
the VT fuse. The VT Fuse Project was
assigned to the Carter Oil Co. of Tulsa
Okla., a Company affiliate, in 1942. The
result was the perfection of the radio-
proximity fuse which is rated second
only to the atomic bomb in winning the
war.

The VT fuse may be said to convert
antiaircraft fire into a game of horse-
shoes in that it makes the close ones
count. The fuse works on the principle
of radio wave reflection, emitting a sig-
nal as the shell travels trough the air.
If it should pass near a plane a weak sig-
nal is reflected back to the shell and the
mechanism instantly explodes the shell,
hurling its concentrated death and des-
truction around the area.

Carter's principle task was to develop
a device which would positively prevent
the accidental explosion of the shell un-
til it had been fired and was a consider-
able distance on its way toward its
target.



Kenneth Yandell, longtime member of
the employee relations group in the Jer-
sey refineries, has been appointed ve-
teran’s administrator for the Standard
Oil Company of New Jersey, which had
over a thousand men in the armed for-

ces.
Mr. Yandell, who had been with the
Navy in the first World War, served

again from 1942 to 1945.

Skill in Arts And Crafts




The Heights kids are no mean hands with needle and thread, not to mention brush and pencil,
as the picture above shows.

Here and There

With thirty contestants eagerly milling
around them and hoping they would be
the lucky ones, the judges at the Lago
Heights Arts and Crafts Exhibit were
hard put to it to decide who were to be
favored with the prizes. The exhibit,
run from October 16 to 20, was judged
on the afternoon of the last day in the
auditorium of the Lago Heights Club.

The young competitors ranged in age
up to 13 years and were split into two
groups, the 'A’ group which ran up to
9 years and the ’B’ group running in
age from 9 to 13 years. Three prizes
were given in each group, a first, a se-
cond and a special.

In the 'A’s the first prize went to M.

Kalloo, second to S. Emers and the spe-
cial to S. Wellman. In the ’B’s first went
to Werleman and tke special was
awarded to J. da Silva.
Overall best for the whole exhibit, both
‘A’ and 'B’ groups was given to J. de
Vries. On the whole the exhibit was
thought to be a success and it is hoped
that another can be held at some future
date. Judges for the contest were E.
Chin and Mrs. R. van Blarcum.

Excess of rain in St. Martin (see
below) may be causing the shortage
of that commodity in Aruba.

This time last year people were
beginning to develop web feet, and
rowboats were beginning to sprout
little rowboats, as seven inches of
rain fell in the first two weeks of
November. The first two weeks of
this year’s November, however, to
the sadness of farmers and garden-
ers, has produced only 0.235 inches.

Last year’s record-setting total
was 31 inches, and so far this entire
year we have had only 11 inches.
Farmers and planners of beach pic-
nics can look at it optimistically or
pessimistically, as they choose —
either it’s a very dry year, or there’s
a whale of a lot of rain yet to fall
between now and December 31.

Rain, four days of it, fell on the
island of St. Martin last month causing
considerable loss to the inhabitants in
livestock and crops. The downpour,
starting on October 4 and lasting
through October 7, is reported to have
been the greatest that has fallen on St.
Martin in almost a century.

The deluge of water evidently caught
many persons off guard and sent them
rushing to higher ground without being
able to save much except personal be-
longings. For this reason a lot of sheep),

pigs and goats were lost.

A great deal of damage was done in
the higher area to some of the crops.
Fresh Pond Bridge was flooded over
and the resulting traffic tie up lasted
until the water receded and the roads
could be repaired. The source of this in-
formation, Elliot Maundy of Phillips-
burg, also stated in his letter to the
Aruba Esso News that on parts of the
island the water reached a height of
eight and a half feet.

This bit of “news” is published for
the interest of any St. Martin employees
who might not have heard about the
freak weather.

Executives of Esso Marketers, Macy’s
department store, and Ercoupe, makers
of a new low-priced, spin-proof airplane,
got a peep into the post-war world last
month with a demonstration of the plane
at a New Jersey field October 8.

The occasion of the demonstration
was the start of Macy's plan, the first
by any department store, to merchandise
planes directly to the public. After a
luncheon given by Esso’s sales group,
guests drove to the airport and had an
opportunity to fly the plane themselves.





The Board of Directors of Stam

Missing Son Given Up as Lost

L. G- Lopez of the Gas Plant recei-
ved official War Department notifica-
tion November 12 of the presumptive
finding of death” in the case of his son,
Technical § eant Victor Lopez, who
had been missing in action since April
8, 1944.

Victor’s last mission was a bombing
raid from a base in England to Bruns-
wick, Germany. Heavy enemy opposition
was encountered and his plane was shot
down near the target area.

As crew member on Liberator bom-
bers, he had received the Air Medal and
an Oak Leaf Cluster, for many missions
cluding the Ploesti Refinery raid.

The letter from the Army’s Adjutant
General says "An appraisal of the sa-
crifice made by your son in the service
of his country compels in us feelings of
humility and respect.



Plant Reporter System
Organized for Improved
Employee News Coverage

Inaugurating a system which will
broaden the paper's coverage of news
about employees, the Esso News is in the
process of setting up a network of plant
reporters. Thirty-five men and women
will represent all the larger depart-
ments, serving voluntarily as tipsters”
for their group of employees.

The reporters will not be expected to
write their stories: Their function, and
a most important one, will be to give
the staff "news tips’; that is, to let
them know that something has happen-
ed, or may be about to happen, that will
be of interest to a wide range of readers.

In all cases possible, the reporters
have been chosen on the basis of their
past interest in turning in news notes,
or because they are centrally located in
a department and will be in a position
to hear of newsy happenings.

Each reporter is to receive a perso-
nally-inscribed booklet containing in-
struction and advice that will help hirn
in representing his group to the plant.

As this issue goes to press approxi-
mately half of the reporters have been
selected, and the remainder will be cho-
sen within a few days. A complete list
of the reporters and the group they
represent will be published next month.

First plant reporter to go to work
was Mrs. Ivy Butts of the Power-
house, who, within an hour of her
appointment, turned in a good tip
for a future issue. News tips used
in this issue were turned in by re-
porters Ricardo van Blarcum of
Stewards, and Mario Harms of the
Boiler Shop.

TO BE MARRIED next week are
Leendert van Windt of Colony Adminis-
tration, and Dolly Alfarez- The ceremo-
ny is to be performed November 29 at
San Francisco Church in Oranjestad.
They will make their home at Socotorro.

Mohamad Rohoman. assistant
operator at Powerhouse No. 1, whose
bride-to-be arrived November 12,
has the marriage date set for No-
vember 28.

Utilities and Colony Service Lead Football Loops

Football required a bit of a push some
weeks ago when it started at the Sport
Park. Players did not seem to want to
come out and preparations were com-
menced for the funeral of an ill-starred




ynd week started the league
, .cams showed up, and some
hot contests were run off, with
rkling play and brilliant teamwork
idence all over the field. Proof that
all s well under control was the fact
that on the second Sunday of league
competition five draws out of six games
ere played.

From this point on the more power-
tul teams started to take over, old ex-
perienced combinations got the fecl
again and began to click, new outfits
made up in fight what they lacked in
"know how”; and the standings began
to tilt) Personnel seemed to show a
strong aggregation. Later games show-
ed that this was true but other teams
simply had not played as many games
and their records proved to be equally
as good as when later standings brought
them up to date.

Top teams in each league at the pre-
sent writing are Colony Service Admini-
stration of the Aloe league and Utilities
in the Divi Divi league, each with six
points and clean records of having won
all their games. As the competition goes
on, the pace should get hotter and hot-
ter until late in January when the
league ends with a three-game playoff.





In €







1
A look at the scores after the fourth
week of play shows Hans Nahar of the
Light Oils Lightnings, one of tie island’s
outstanding players to be top scorer up
to that point with six goals to his credit.
Tromp, also of L.u I*., Fingal of Per-
sonnel, and Solognier cf the Drydock
follow with three apiece, and, the two-
goal men include Chirino, Jansen, de
Palm, Wout, and Franken.

Some Sidelights:

The men that play for Light Oils are
essentially the same team that won the
cup in the last league, only they carr:ed
the banner of the Acid Plant that year.
Drydock is the team that held them to
a 3 to 3 draw October 28, to break their
perfect record. Nahar and Solognier did
all the scoring, each getting three.

Ned Jasper and Fitzgerald McKenzie
above, believe in eye protection. Last
month while they were using a rivet
buster, a sheared bolt flew off and
struck both men in the face, shat-
tering McKenzie’s goggles. All four of
their eyes are unharmed, however—
thanks to goggles.



SERVICE SLANTS

Val Linam, who shortly before the
war ended was transferred on an in-
definite basis from personnel work
with Lago to personnel work with
the U.S. Army, wound up his special
training November 1 and is now
awaiting permanent assignment,
probably to Camp Chaffee, Arkan-
sas.

Training as a classification and
vocational counselor, he had two
months schooling at Camp, Lee, Vir-
ginia, and another two months at
Camp Oglethorpe, Georgia. He says
he graduated complete with diploma

Val lost 18 pounds in basic train-
ing and is now a solid 210. (His new
baby has just 19914 pounds to go,
to catch up with papa).



Andrew Knox, former Payroll De-
partment employee, sent cabled advice
to friends here last month that he was
"safe in British hands’ at Rangoon.
Andy left here in 1940, was next heard
from in London where he joined the
British army and married an Irish nurse,
and became a Jap prisoner of war when
Singapore fell.



SAFE -- NOT

Ned Jasper y Fitzgerald McKenzie (ariba, banda robez) conocé balor di nan bista. Luna
| pasd4, mientras nan tabata traha cu un "rivet buster’, un bolt a kibra y bula dal den
cara di tur dos e hombernan y hasta kibra bril di seguridad di McKenzie. Toer dos nan

Gerald McGiilvary Is a booster for
safety. The hat he is holding saved
him from being seriously injured last
month. The piece of 7/8” nut shown
in the picture fell 30 feet and hit the
hat he was wearing, but safety hats
are tough, and this one saved him a
trip to the Hospital.



A Head But No Brains

It is a strange fact that one of
man’s most common necessities is
also one of his biggest potential
dangers.

Fires started by matches (mostly
by matches that are carelessly
handled) take hundreds of lives
every year. Matches lead all other
causes in responsibility for fire
destruction, with an annual charge
against them of $ 30,000,000 in the
United States.

These little bits of wood and
chemical are at once one of our best
friends and worst enemies. They can
be used, but they must also be
guarded against.

Now more than ever —

Safe and careful handling is al-
ways necessary, but right now it is
more essential than ever, during a
temporary period when regular
matches have been unobtainable and
a poor substitute must be used.

Strike them away from you, to
avoid being burned by hot flying
fragments of the head. And after
using a match, hold it until all after-
glow is gone and you know the
match is out. Good rules to follow
with any match any time, they are
extra good rules during the short
time when inferior matches are all
we can get.

Matches have heads but can’t think.
The user has to do the thinking.

The fourth quarterly supper at the Lago Community Church October 24 brought out a large crowd

of all ages to feast on meat balls and spaghetti, cole
ment features afterward included community singing (below), led by Wayne Simmons, and a de-

moenstration of archery (above) by Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Waddell. Archery is comparatively new to
the Colony, and the frequency of the bulls-eyes brought many gasps from the spectators.



Scouts on Outdoor Encampment

Travelling to Colombia this year
for their annual outdoor encamp-
ment, about 35 Boy Scouts from
Aruba will join other boys from the

Led by Camp Chief Gordon Olli-
vierre of Utilities and Deputy Camp
Chief Antonio Morales of the Ga-
rage, the boys will travel by steamer

mina Sport Park near Oranjestad.

The U.N.I.A. Hall was the scene of the Anglican Church's annual Harvest Festival November 11
And 12. The picture shows a portion of the gifts brought by members for sale the second evening
; of the festival.

Carrying on a custom which has long
been a part of Anglican life, the mem-
bers of the Anglican Church in San Ni-
colas gathered in the U. N. I. A. Hall
on Sunday, November 11, to hold the
annual Anglican Harvest Festival. The
Church members, many of whom are
employees, contributed gifts of fruits,
flowers, clothes, money, and groceries.

The Church was started in May 194%
by Father Jenson of Saba, who now
pays the congregation quarterly visits.
Services are conducted by lay readers,
R- Martin, V. Thom, and L. van Putten.

These men are assisted by J. Hazlewood,
B. Noel, and R. Lake.

The Church is well organized and re-
ceives a good measure of cooperation
from its members, who number approxi-
mately 1,000. The Festival, the first of
its kind in Aruba, was said to be a suc-
cess and all the gifts were greatly ap-
preciated. The celebration started on
Sunday with Matins and Procession at
10 a.m. and continued with a Children’s
Service at 2 p.m. and a Sacred Concert
at 7 p.m. On Monday the sale of gifts
and refreshments was held at 7 p-m.

NAMES IN THE NEWS





A Company employee, Sergeant Nicholas Oreskz
of Stanco, receives the Congressional Medal ot
Honor from President Harry Truman Octobr~ 12
before highest-ranking Army and Navy officers.
He won the nation’s highest honor for an exploit
as a platoon leader with General Patton's army
in Germany. A few days after receiving the me-
dal, he met with the directors of S. O. (N.J.},
who presented him with a gold watch bearing
an inscription of the presentation.



Service awards last month included one for 20
years to Fred Penney, assistant division super+
intendent who is one of the ‘’oidest-timers.”
Originally employed by Mexpet at Carteret, New
Jersey on May 27, 1925, he came to Aruba June
®, 1927 as superintendent, and later for many
years was general foreman of Receiving & Ship-
ping.





Canadian Gold Interests
To Operate in Aruba

The visit of Canadian mining experts
to Aruba about a year ago has develop-
ed into the formation of a company
that will begin gold mining operations
here for the first time in 25 years, ac-
cording to a business news bureau in th2
United States.

The company, which is capitalized in
the Curacao Territory at 3,000,000 Ca-
nadian dollars, believes that operations
may still be profitable if modern me-
thods are employed. Arrangements are
being made to ship to Aruba machinery
and other equipment now in their pos-
session,

Gold was first discovered here about
1825, and for the next 100 years the
industry was never very profitable for
any company that attempted it: The
only one that made a return on its in-
vestment started in 1908, smelting ore
brought in by individual miners and
paying according to the amount of
gold found.

Mining of any variety was abandoned
with the advent of the daily wage scale
brought by the petroleum industry in
1927. Since then the picturesque ruins
have gathered rust and romance.

The revival of Curacao Territory's
sustantial pre-war tourist trade became
a possibility last month with the lifting
of wartime restrictions on visitors.

Tourists and businessmen again need
cnly a passport and vaccination certifi-
cate for entry.

New Work-Pay; Schedule Returns Plant

Following discussions in staff meetings and with employee representative
committees, wages and hours throughout the plant were revised November 1. A
uniform working schedule was adopted, and a 15 per cent general increase was
made in all base rates with the exception of some which were recognized to be

out of line.

In the new work schedule, all operations on a 48-hour straight-day or irre-
gular schedule revert to a 45-hour week, with minor exceptions. (Those emplo-
yees previously on 44 or 45 hours continue on that schedule). All operations
working a 50.4 hour shift revert to a 48-hour shift schedule, while those pre-
viously working a 48-hour shift continue on that basis.

ee S Earnings Adjusted
To Bayway-Bayonne Rates

Following the policy of relating ad-
justments in earnings for Foreign Staff
employees in Aruba to those at Bayway
and Bayonne, the Company announced
the increase of base wages and salaries
by 15 per cent, and at the same time
pay schedules were adapted to the re-
vised working schedule.

The change was made effective Sep-
tember 9, the same date as the change
to peacetime wages and hours was made
at Bayway-Bayonne.

Long Vacations Provided
For S. & R. Employees
By New Vacation Policy

Compary and Employees Maintain
Savings Plan for Financial Aid
After discussion with the Employees’
Advisory Committee last month an ex-
panded vacation policy for Staff and
Regular employees was announced, with
the effective date placed at September
1. The new plan will not only increase
the length of vacations, facilitating tra-
vel or longer relaxation from work, but
will provide financial assistance. A vo-
luntary savings plan will operate, in
which the Company will match on an
equal basis the amounts regularly con-
tributed to the plan by the employee.

Under the previous arrangement no
vacation was given until the secona
year of employment, and a maximum of
two weeks was given in any year. Un-
der the new plan an employee receives
one week after his first year of emplov-
ment. Two weeks vacation is given after
the second and third year, and four
weeks after the fourth year. Thereaf-
ter the employee has a four-week vaca-
tion every fourth year, with two weeks
during the intervening years.

The savings plan provides for volun-
tary contributions of one, two or three
per cent of regular earnings by em-
ployees, with the Company matching
these amounts equally. The total of his
own and Company contributions is re-
turned to the employee when he takes
his long vacation every fourth year,
providing a worthwhile sum to assist iti
the costs of the vacation.

(If an employee is terminated through resig-
nation or discharge, he receives his own contri-
bi-ions with interest. If terminated by lay-off,
cal discharge, retirement or death, he ¥
ves the Company's contributions as well
his own. No withdrawals or loans may be made,

though contributions may be suspended for a
time).











At the same time the Company an-
nounced a one-time special grant to each
Staff and Regular employee at the time
he first takes his long vacation. This will
be an amount equal to 16-2/3 per cent of
his contributions to the Lago Thrift
Fund during a maximum of four years
preceding his long vacation (or for what-
ever lesser period he has been a Thriit
Plan participant.) This special grant,
given only once, will assist in providing

a limit to which such familiarity should

go, though, as he said when a bolt of

He was sitting in his room in the

was a flash and his radio sat there smo-

| Wages and Hours Changed To Meet Current Conditions

to Peacetime Basis

Changes in Hours Wages, and
Vacation Plan Announced for
Staff and Regular Employees

To assist in meeting rising living
costs, and to maintain "take-home pav’
after the reduction of hours to a 45 and
48-hour schedule, effective November 1
ell base rates for Staff «and Regular
employees were increased 15 per cent.

Hourly rates were rounded out to the
nearest half-ceat upward, and all 44, 45,
and 48-hour rates were rounded out to
the nearest five guilders upward.

At the same time, the vacation policy
was broadened to give longer vacations
at certain intervals, and to provide finan-
cial assistance that will facilitate travel
or otherwise aid in the increased time
away from work. (See below for details
of this policy).

A limited number of exceptions to the
general increases include certain hourly
and monthly rates which the manage-
ment considers are in excess of the pre-
sent maximum rate for the specific type
of work involved, and are recognized to
be out of line. Individual adjustments
will be made in some of these cases, but
in no case will an employee receive less
total earnings under the revised work-
ing schedule than he is now earning. In
the necessary adjustment of these in-
equalities, Management took the oppor-
tunity of correcting out-of-line rates at
a time when no employee would suffer
a reduction in earnings:

In countless ways, ranging from the development of |

Lago Youth Wins Teagle Scholarship

Gene Kimler, who graduated from
Lago High School in June, was awarded
a scholarship at Cornell University by
the recently-formed Teagle Foundation,
according to word received here early
this month. He joins two men and six
women, representing the Jersey and
Delaware companies, Carter, Lago, and
S.0.D., who are the first winners of the
scholarships endowed by Walter C-
Teagle, retired board chairman of S.O.
Com (NiJ:)-

Gene, whose father works at the Pres-
sure Stills, proved himself a natural
leader during the junior and_ senior
years he spent in the high school here.
Scholastically he ranked in the upper
fifth of his class, and he took a promi-
nent part in many school and communi-
ty activities.

He was president of the Senior class
last year, and president of the Student
Advisory Committee. He played the
lead in the annual school play, and was
editor of the year book. He led the
organized flag-raising and lowering
which for a month commemorated Pre-
sident Roosevelt’s death. He was secre-
tary of the Sunday School class for high
school boys. He was an Eagle Scout,
and at the last Boy Scout Day he was
chosen to act as general manager of the
plant for the day: In all respects he
showed outstanding potentialities of
leadership, one of the qualities stressed
in making the scholarship awards,

Gene, who is 18, was born in Tampico,
Mexico, and later moved to the States.

The Teagle Scholarships have a mini-
mum value to cover tuition and fees,
and may include additional amounts for
personal expenses, depending on the
circumstances of the winners. The Foun-
dation places no obligation on the candi-
dates to follow any specific course of
study, nor to pursue their later careers
with the Company.

Organization Changes

Two changes of organization were
announced in the Industrial Relutions
Department last month. R. W. Stickel
has been promoted from training super-
visor to the position of assistant person-
nel manager, and will coordinate the
ectivities of the Employment and Train-
ing Divisions of the Personnel Depart-
ment. Frank Scott has been promoted
to the position of training supervisor,
and will be responsible for all activities
carried out by the Training Division.

Mr. Stickel came to Aruba January
1, 1939 as a student engineer. He was
promoted to training assistant in Sep-
tember 1939, and in June 1942, he be-
came assistant training supervisor. He
has been training supervisor since Ja-
nuary 5, 1944.

Mr. Scott, who has been assistant
training supervisor, arrived here in Sep-
tember 1944.

H. V. Locker was assigned to the
position of process foreman in the Light
Oils Finishing Division October 22, in
charge of distillation and chemical ope-
rations. He first came to Aruba in No-
vember, 1935 as a technical studert,
and transferred to Hydro-Poly as an
operator in September, 1938. In 1940
he became a shift foreman. Three years
later he transferred to T.S.D. as a che-
mical engineer, and had been a group
head since March of this year.

Effective November 1 C: J. Schwartz
became group head "'A”’ in charge of the
Process Design Group, replacing J. L.
Field who is transferring to the Creol2
Petroleum Corporation. Mr. Schwartz
came to Aruba in October 1935, as 2
technical student. A chemical engineer
since January, 1939, he became group
head "B” in June, 1945.

-News

The heroism of three crew members
of a Jersey Standard tanker, the S.S.
"Esso Little Rock”, was described in an
announcement by the War Shipping
Administration last month,

The incident concerned the rescue of
fallen Navy fliers by crew members of
the tanker. While the ship was en route
to the Pacific a message was dropped
to the bridge by a Navy PBY flying
boat, giving the position of a Catalina
bomber with a crew of eight aboard
which had been forced down in a heavy
sea, f

The "Esso Little Rock” cruised in the
vicinity of the position given until a flare
was sighted. Seven men off the tanker
manned a life boat and by skilful hand-
ling in the rough water accomplished
the rescue of the airmen who otherwise
would have perished.

It was during the rescue that the
three men mentioned in the announce-
ment distinguished themselves to the
extent they received the Meritorious
Service Medal of the Maritime Service.





After more than two years of study
of the Atlantic Coastal Plain region by
Standard Oil geologists, plans to drill
for oil on the barrier beach off the coast
of North Carolina have been announced
by the Standard Oil Company of New
Jersey. The wildeat well will be sunk
near the old Cape Hatteras lighthouse
which is about 160 air miles southeast
of Norfolk, Virginia.

If the Hatteras test proves the pre-
sence of oil in the Coastal Plain section,
incentive will be furnished for further
test drilling in the shallow water of the
Coastal Plain areas.

"A detached brain for explosive pro-
jectiles”, is the tag that was hung on
the VT fuse. The VT Fuse Project was
assigned to the Carter Oil Co. of Tulsa
Okla., a Company affiliate, in 1942. The
result was the perfection of the radio-
proximity fuse which is rated second
only to the atomic bomb in winning the
war.

The VT fuse may be said to convert
antiaircraft fire into a game of horse-
shoes in that it makes the close ones
count. The fuse works on the principle
of radio wave reflection, emitting a sig-
nal as the shell travels trough the air.
If it should pass near a plane a weak sig-
nal is reflected back to the shell and the
mechanism instantly explodes the shell,
hurling its concentrated death and des-
truction around the area.

Carter's principle task was to develop
a device which would positively prevent
the accidental explosion of the shell un-
til it had been fired and was a consider-
able distance on its way toward its
target.



Kenneth Yandell, longtime member of
the employee relations group in the Jer-
sey refineries, has been appointed ve-
teran’s administrator for the Standard
Oil Company of New Jersey, which had
over a thousand men in the armed for-

ces.
Mr. Yandell, who had been with the
Navy in the first World War, served

again from 1942 to 1945.

Skill in Arts And Crafts




The Heights kids are no mean hands with needle and thread, not to mention brush and pencil,
as the picture above shows.

Here and There

With thirty contestants eagerly milling
around them and hoping they would be
the lucky ones, the judges at the Lago
Heights Arts and Crafts Exhibit were
hard put to it to decide who were to be
favored with the prizes. The exhibit,
run from October 16 to 20, was judged
on the afternoon of the last day in the
auditorium of the Lago Heights Club.

The young competitors ranged in age
up to 13 years and were split into two
groups, the 'A’ group which ran up to
9 years and the ’B’ group running in
age from 9 to 13 years. Three prizes
were given in each group, a first, a se-
cond and a special.

In the 'A’s the first prize went to M.

Kalloo, second to S. Emers and the spe-
cial to S. Wellman. In the ’B’s first went
to Werleman and tke special was
awarded to J. da Silva.
Overall best for the whole exhibit, both
‘A’ and 'B’ groups was given to J. de
Vries. On the whole the exhibit was
thought to be a success and it is hoped
that another can be held at some future
date. Judges for the contest were E.
Chin and Mrs. R. van Blarcum.

Excess of rain in St. Martin (see
below) may be causing the shortage
of that commodity in Aruba.

This time last year people were
beginning to develop web feet, and
rowboats were beginning to sprout
little rowboats, as seven inches of
rain fell in the first two weeks of
November. The first two weeks of
this year’s November, however, to
the sadness of farmers and garden-
ers, has produced only 0.235 inches.

Last year’s record-setting total
was 31 inches, and so far this entire
year we have had only 11 inches.
Farmers and planners of beach pic-
nics can look at it optimistically or
pessimistically, as they choose —
either it’s a very dry year, or there’s
a whale of a lot of rain yet to fall

Rain, four days of it, fell on the
island of St. Martin last month causing
considerable loss to the inhabitants in
livestock and crops. The downpour,
starting on October 4 and lasting
through October 7, is reported to have
been the greatest that has fallen on St.
Martin in almost a century.

many persons off guard and sent them
rushing to higher ground without being
able to save much except personal be-
longings. For this reason a lot of sheep),

pigs and goats were lost.

A great deal of damage was done in
the higher area to some of the crops.
Fresh Pond Bridge was flooded over
and the resulting traffic tie up lasted
until the water receded and the roads
could be repaired. The source of this in-
formation, Elliot Maundy of Phillips-
burg, also stated in his letter to the
Aruba Esso News that on parts of the
island the water reached a height of
eight and a half feet.

This bit of “news” is published for
the interest of any St. Martin employees
who might not have heard about the
freak weather.

Executives of Esso Marketers, Macy’s
department store, and Ercoupe, makers
of a new low-priced, spin-proof airplane,
got a peep into the post-war world last
month with a demonstration of the plane
at a New Jersey field October 8.

The occasion of the demonstration
was the start of Macy's plan, the first
by any department store, to merchandise
planes directly to the public. After a
luncheon given by Esso’s sales group,
guests drove to the airport and had an
opportunity to fly the plane themselves.





The Board of Directors of Stam

Missing Son Given Up as Lost

L. G- Lopez of the Gas Plant recei-
ved official War Department notifica-
tion November 12 of the presumptive
finding of death” in the case of his son,
Technical § eant Victor Lopez, who
had been missing in action since April
8, 1944.

Victor’s last mission was a bombing
raid from a base in England to Bruns-
wick, Germany. Heavy enemy opposition
was encountered and his plane was shot
down near the target area.

As crew member on Liberator bom-
bers, he had received the Air Medal and
an Oak Leaf Cluster, for many missions
cluding the Ploesti Refinery raid.

The letter from the Army’s Adjutant
General says "An appraisal of the sa-
crifice made by your son in the service
of his country compels in us feelings of
humility and respect.



Plant Reporter System
Organized for Improved
Employee News Coverage

Inaugurating a system which will
broaden the paper's coverage of news
about employees, the Esso News is in the
process of setting up a network of plant
reporters. Thirty-five men and women
will represent all the larger depart-
ments, serving voluntarily as tipsters”
for their group of employees.

The reporters will not be expected to
write their stories: Their function, and
a most important one, will be to give
the staff "news tips’; that is, to let
them know that something has happen-
ed, or may be about to happen, that will
be of interest to a wide range of readers.

In all cases possible, the reporters
have been chosen on the basis of their
past interest in turning in news notes,
or because they are centrally located in
a department and will be in a position
to hear of newsy happenings.

Each reporter is to receive a perso-
nally-inscribed booklet containing in-
struction and advice that will help hirn
in representing his group to the plant.

As this issue goes to press approxi-
mately half of the reporters have been
selected, and the remainder will be cho-
sen within a few days. A complete list
of the reporters and the group they
represent will be published next month.

First plant reporter to go to work
was Mrs. Ivy Butts of the Power-
house, who, within an hour of her
appointment, turned in a good tip
for a future issue. News tips used
in this issue were turned in by re-
porters Ricardo van Blarcum of
Stewards, and Mario Harms of the
Boiler Shop.

TO BE MARRIED next week are
Leendert van Windt of Colony Adminis-
tration, and Dolly Alfarez- The ceremo-
ny is to be performed November 29 at
San Francisco Church in Oranjestad.
They will make their home at Socotorro.

Mohamad Rohoman. assistant
operator at Powerhouse No. 1, whose
bride-to-be arrived November 12,
has the marriage date set for No-
vember 28.

Utilities and Colony Service Lead Football Loops

Football required a bit of a push some
weeks ago when it started at the Sport
Park. Players did not seem to want to
come out and preparations were com-
menced for the funeral of an ill-starred




ynd week started the league
, .cams showed up, and some
hot contests were run off, with
rkling play and brilliant teamwork
idence all over the field. Proof that
all s well under control was the fact
that on the second Sunday of league
competition five draws out of six games
ere played.

From this point on the more power-
tul teams started to take over, old ex-
perienced combinations got the fecl
again and began to click, new outfits
made up in fight what they lacked in
"know how”; and the standings began
to tilt) Personnel seemed to show a
strong aggregation. Later games show-
ed that this was true but other teams
simply had not played as many games
and their records proved to be equally
as good as when later standings brought
them up to date.

Top teams in each league at the pre-
sent writing are Colony Service Admini-
stration of the Aloe league and Utilities
in the Divi Divi league, each with six
points and clean records of having won
all their games. As the competition goes
on, the pace should get hotter and hot-
ter until late in January when the
league ends with a three-game playoff.





In €







1
A look at the scores after the fourth
week of play shows Hans Nahar of the
Light Oils Lightnings, one of tie island’s
outstanding players to be top scorer up
to that point with six goals to his credit.
Tromp, also of L.u I*., Fingal of Per-
sonnel, and Solognier cf the Drydock
follow with three apiece, and, the two-
goal men include Chirino, Jansen, de
Palm, Wout, and Franken.

Some Sidelights:

The men that play for Light Oils are
essentially the same team that won the
cup in the last league, only they carr:ed
the banner of the Acid Plant that year.
Drydock is the team that held them to
a 3 to 3 draw October 28, to break their
perfect record. Nahar and Solognier did
all the scoring, each getting three.

Ned Jasper and Fitzgerald McKenzie
above, believe in eye protection. Last
month while they were using a rivet
buster, a sheared bolt flew off and
struck both men in the face, shat-
tering McKenzie’s goggles. All four of
their eyes are unharmed, however—
thanks to goggles.



SERVICE SLANTS

Val Linam, who shortly before the
war ended was transferred on an in-
definite basis from personnel work
with Lago to personnel work with
the U.S. Army, wound up his special
training November 1 and is now
awaiting permanent assignment,
probably to Camp Chaffee, Arkan-
sas.

Training as a classification and
vocational counselor, he had two
months schooling at Camp, Lee, Vir-
ginia, and another two months at
Camp Oglethorpe, Georgia. He says
he graduated complete with diploma

Val lost 18 pounds in basic train-
ing and is now a solid 210. (His new
baby has just 19914 pounds to go,
to catch up with papa).



Andrew Knox, former Payroll De-
partment employee, sent cabled advice
to friends here last month that he was
"safe in British hands’ at Rangoon.
Andy left here in 1940, was next heard
from in London where he joined the
British army and married an Irish nurse,
and became a Jap prisoner of war when
Singapore fell.



SAFE -- NOT

Ned Jasper y Fitzgerald McKenzie (ariba, banda robez) conocé balor di nan bista. Luna
| pasd4, mientras nan tabata traha cu un "rivet buster’, un bolt a kibra y bula dal den
cara di tur dos e hombernan y hasta kibra bril di seguridad di McKenzie. Toer dos nan

Gerald McGiilvary Is a booster for
safety. The hat he is holding saved
him from being seriously injured last
month. The piece of 7/8” nut shown
in the picture fell 30 feet and hit the
hat he was wearing, but safety hats
are tough, and this one saved him a
trip to the Hospital.



A Head But No Brains

It is a strange fact that one of
man’s most common necessities is
also one of his biggest potential
dangers.

Fires started by matches (mostly
by matches that are carelessly
handled) take hundreds of lives
every year. Matches lead all other
causes in responsibility for fire
destruction, with an annual charge
against them of $ 30,000,000 in the
United States.

These little bits of wood and
chemical are at once one of our best
friends and worst enemies. They can
be used, but they must also be
guarded against.

Now more than ever —

Safe and careful handling is al-
ways necessary, but right now it is
more essential than ever, during a
temporary period when regular
matches have been unobtainable and
a poor substitute must be used.

Strike them away from you, to
avoid being burned by hot flying
fragments of the head. And after
using a match, hold it until all after-
glow is gone and you know the
match is out. Good rules to follow
with any match any time, they are
extra good rules during the short
time when inferior matches are all
we can get.

Matches have heads but can’t think.
The user has to do the thinking.

The fourth quarterly supper at the Lago Community Church October 24 brought out a large crowd

of all ages to feast on meat balls and spaghetti, cole
ment features afterward included community singing (below), led by Wayne Simmons, and a de-

moenstration of archery (above) by Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Waddell. Archery is comparatively new to
the Colony, and the frequency of the bulls-eyes brought many gasps from the spectators.



Scouts on Outdoor Encampment

Travelling to Colombia this year
for their annual outdoor encamp-
ment, about 35 Boy Scouts from
Aruba will join other boys from the

Led by Camp Chief Gordon Olli-
vierre of Utilities and Deputy Camp
Chief Antonio Morales of the Ga-

which is tentatively scheduled for
December 29 and 30 at the Wilhel-
mina Sport Park near Oranjestad.

With cricket circles relatively
quiet here in recent months, or-
ganizers of the match are urging
Lago’s experts to get some much-
needed practise to help hold up Aru-
ba’s end.

The U.N.I.A. Hall was the scene of the Anglican Church's annual Harvest Festival November 11
And 12. The picture shows a portion of the gifts brought by members for sale the second evening
; of the festival.

Carrying on a custom which has long
been a part of Anglican life, the mem-
bers of the Anglican Church in San Ni-
colas gathered in the U. N. I. A. Hall
on Sunday, November 11, to hold the
annual Anglican Harvest Festival. The
Church members, many of whom are
employees, contributed gifts of fruits,
flowers, clothes, money, and groceries.

The Church was started in May 194%
by Father Jenson of Saba, who now
pays the congregation quarterly visits.
Services are conducted by lay readers,
R- Martin, V. Thom, and L. van Putten.

These men are assisted by J. Hazlewood,
B. Noel, and R. Lake.

The Church is well organized and re-
ceives a good measure of cooperation
from its members, who number approxi-
mately 1,000. The Festival, the first of
its kind in Aruba, was said to be a suc-
cess and all the gifts were greatly ap-
preciated. The celebration started on
Sunday with Matins and Procession at
10 a.m. and continued with a Children’s
Service at 2 p.m. and a Sacred Concert
at 7 p.m. On Monday the sale of gifts
and refreshments was held at 7 p-m.
