tine looked in his pocket for his 86
guilders and it was gone. If anyone has
found the monye and will return it to
him he will be deeply grateful.

long vacation in Trinidad is A. Taitt, of
the Esso Dining Hall.

Organization Changes

Two organization changes were an-
nounced in the Process Department in
August. G. L. MacNutt was transferred
to the Western Division of the Process
Department as assistant division super-
intendent in charge of the Light Oils
Finishing Division, and C. J. Griffin was
promoted to the position of assistant
division superintendent in charge of the
Catalytic Department.

Mr. MacNutt came to Aruba as a first
class helper on the Pressure Stills in
1929. He attained the position of process
foreman in 1939 Mr. Griffin started in
Aruba in 1934 as a third class operator
on the Pressure Stills. In 1938 he became
an operator in the Hydro-Alky Plant
and became process foreman in 1941.

Absences for Crop Cultivation
Are Authorized Without Penalty

This year, as in the past, the A.W.O.
L. policy will be waived for four days
in the case of those employees desig-
nated by the Government as having land
on which crops may be grown. Men in
this group are allowed four days off
without pay before January 1, 1947.

Two of the allowable days are usually
taken immediately after the first heavy
rain, and need not be reported to fore-
men in advance. The other two days are
taken from four to eight weeks later in
order to cultivate the crops, and these
days require permission obtained in
advance.

Where necessary, foremen have been
provided with lists indicating which

ized farming absences.

"Education on wheels’’ was the theme
at the Light Oils Department’s class-
room August 29 as the building was
moved with a class in session. In-

structor Garvice Roby and his students
never missed a recitation as the Labor
Department put the classroom on rollers
and moved it 50 feet to make way for
a new building.

"Oranjestad" became the name of the first of the new K.L.M. DC-4’s in the West Indian service,
when Mrs. John G. Eman broke a bottle of champagne over the nose wheel of the big ship at
Dakota Field, August 14. In a short speech, L. F. Bouman, above, head of the West Indies section

of the K.L.M., said the reason Aruba had been chosen as the christening place was that it had

become the hub of the West Indies service. Mr.

Bouman also said Mrs. Eman had been asked

to christen the plane because of the great assistance given by her late husband to K.L.M. when

the service was starting. A.M. Schutte spoke for Lt. Governor Kwartsz, expressing Aruba’s pride

in the honor that had come to it. Godfried Eman, who heads the local K.L.M. agency, also gave

a sbort talk. Service with the new ship began in the last week in August and delivery is expected

on other DC-4's in the near future. Below, the huge plane is seen with the Dakota station building
and the audience of nearly S00 in the background.

"Oranjestad" ta nomber di e promé avion DC-4 di 42 pasahero cu K.L.M. lo usa pa servicio di

Accident reports point out over and over that defective
hand tools are responsible for accidents resulting in personal
injuries. There is, for instance, the case where a chip flew
off the head of a sledge hammer and became lodged in a
man’s knee. Luckily the piece of steel found its way into
the fleshy part of the knee and did not cause any serious
damage. It could have been an entirely different story
— perhaps a permanent disability of the knee if the
splinter had succeeded in entering under the knee cap
Another accident of this sort occurred when a man was
using a worn out wrench with the jaws spread open to
tighten the bolts on a manhole plate. The wrench slipped
off the nut and hit him in the face just below the eye.

One of the most dangerous bad tool conditions is
shown in the photograph. Arrows point to the hanging



curls of metal that can easily break off under a blow,
and fly into a man's face.

Every supervisor should enforce definite rules about

Surinam Club Holds Gala Fair

Featuring games of chance, handicraft
articles from Surinam, and a lavish dis-
play of striking costumes worn by actual
representatives of the many nationalities
to be found at home, the Surinam Club's
four-day fair last month drew large and
enthusiastic crowds.

The fair started August 23 with an
overflow audience in attendance. The
doors opened on the tableaux and cos-
tumes and nationalities pictured atright

A. Schutte represented Lt. Governor
Kwartsz for the opening address, and
after a welcome from J. Simoon, club
president, the crowd moved out to the

fair-grounds
The theme throughout the fair was
the wide range of nationalities and cul-

tures found in Surinam. Costumes re-



presented Indonesians (Java and Cele-
bes), Hindus, Spaniards, Netherlanders,
Chinese, Kotto Missies (whose costumes
date from the time they were freed
slaves), and Djukas (former runaway
slaves). A similar feature was the sale
of food native to many of these groups.

Food and drink were plentiful, games
of chance were numerous and varied,
and a large dance floor rounded out the
entertainment. Well over 3,000 specta-
tors were in attendance the first three
nights of the fair, and it was reopened
for a final evening on August 31

Henry Nassy (of No. 3 Laboratory)
was in charge of all arrangements as
head of the club’s sub-committee for
organizing the fair.

kana (Utilities Office),

A Preview of what is in store for Aruba in the not too distant future (ac-
cording to past year’s weather behavior) is shown here. Taken a few years
ago, this shot of the refinery from the east end of the Lagoon shows the
almost complete absence of breeze. Glass-like water ana nearly per-
Pendicular smoke columns emphasize the fact that the hot season is really in.



Aki bao, artista Reynold de Freitas di T. S. D. Drafting ta mustra su trabao
na L. G. Smith. E cuadro pinta di un portret a bini cla algun dia promé cu
Mr. Smith a hai New York. E trabao ta haci cu olieverf (verf di azeta).





"Aristocrats incognito” might be the le of the picture above. Lumpi, at
left, and Dotti are the names they go by, but a search into their pedigrees
reveals that Lumpi’s last name is von Osterhausen, son of a "Prince von
Osterhausen’’, and Dotti’s mother was ’'Countess von der Neidhoehle’’. The
two dachshunds are owned by J. F. X. Auer, supervisor of the Di g Halls.









Aki 'riba nos ta mira "Lumpi” y Dotti’, dos cacho di raza cu ta pertenecé

| Above, artist Reynold De Freitas of T. S. D. Drafting shows his work to
L. G. Smith. Painted from a photograph, this portrait in oils of Mr. Smith
was completed shortly before he left for New York.

Beach acrobatics aren't so hard, at least not
when they're done with the ease and nonchalance
Ava Gardener displays here. She and Burt
Lancaster, both of Universal Studios, are seen
at right cavorting on the beach at Santa Monica.





Captivating an audience is hard work for some
performers, but at left Terry Richey accomplishes
it with the greatest of ease during the Junior
Esso Club's production ’All Together’ at the
Esso Club August 10. Below, the cast is shown
in the finale of the performance, which was
produced almost entirely by Colony youngsters.
Included are David Schmitt (producer and dir-
ector), Roy Burbage, Libby Haase, Barbara
Hellwig, Dotty Learned, Bob Learned, Elvira
Macrini, Mertene Morris, Gloria Morris, Terry
Richey, Patsy Richey, Susie Schmitt, Xenia
Schwartz, Kathleen Spitz, Barbara Stiehl, and

of Aruba, and studying to win Scout merit badges. On the Queen's Birthday
they marched in the parades. The picture above shows them at morning
assembly around the flagpole. At right above is a view of one portion of the
camp, which was spread over a wide area. At right below, a group of Senior
Scouts take time out from their duties of assisting the camp's leaders to
prepare breakfast under the trees. The camp was in charge of Brother
C. G. Grootens of Curacao. Lago assisted by providing the group with ice,

water, and sanitary facilities, and erected the flagpole for them.

if the reader has ever wondered how a dredge
chews up the hard bottom of a harbor, let him
take a look at the business end of the dredge
that has been a familiar sight in San Nicolas har-
bor for a number of months. Whi dynamite
comes into play frequently for cracking up the
bottom, the massive teeth chew up the material
before it is sucked into the “spoil” line. The
present dredging job, one of the biggest since the
harbor was opened 19 years ago, includes deepen-
ing the lake tanker berths for the future use of
bigger lakers, dredging a basin for a new ocean
tanker finger pier, and general cleaning up
throughout the harbor.

The preliminaries of wed-
ding bells ringing twice
last month are shown at
right. In the top picture,
receiving a wedding gift
from her fellow em-
ployees at the Hospital
switchboard, Leonor Ma-
duro smiles her thanks
as she accepts a pair of
silver butter knives and
a silver table lamp from
Frida Daal. Leonor was
married to Gerard Pap-
pers of the Dutch Mili-
tary Police (Lago Bri-
gade) in the Catholic
Church in San Nicolas
August 29. A reception
followed the wedding at
Tank Farm 14. Below,
his friends’ wishes of
good luck and a happy
life went with this cash
gift that Cade Abraham
is presenting to Isidoro
Ras on the day before
his marriage to Marga-
ritha Vroolijk. The wed-
ding took place in the
Immaculate Conception
in Santa Cruz, August 29





"The European situation is not very
bright. It is not impossible that we hear
to-morrow or day after to-morrow that
the war, which they have tried to avoid
for years, broke out. How will things be
if there is another war? Remember that
5,000,000 men will fight 4,500,000 men
and with the most terrible of arms. It
will undoubtedly be a massacre the like
of which the world has never seen be-
fore. The troublemaker is Russia, which
quietly lets its ships go by the Darda-
nelles, which they may not do according
to the Treaty of Paris (by which all the
powers promised not to let their war
ships go by the Dardanelles).

England has protested against this
act of Russia, but Turkey answered that
Russia has not violated the treaty, be-
cause all the war ships flew commerce
flags and it is not prohibited for com-
merce ships to go by the Dardanelles.
Russia’s smartness has made it possible
that until now they have let all war
ships pass, provided they flew commerce
flags. Thus 20 war ships passed with
150 thousand men, while in the West
500,000 soldiers stand at the Front. Eng-
land has sent a squadron to the Darda-
nelles to watch the Russian war ships...”

Does it sound like yesterday's news-
paper with the latest international com-
plications ? No, it was written in Curacao
55 years ago.

"Nothing older than yesterday's news-
paper” says the old adage. A newspaper
more than a few days old is dead and
forgotten. After a long time, though, it
reverses the process, and as it ages like
old wine, it takes on new interest with
each year as a picture of the past. Such
is the file of 1891 copies of the Curacao
Catholic publication "La Union” loaned
to the Esso News by S.N. Ecury of
Oranjestad.

Some items, like the English-Russian
situation, read like this week’s Time”
magazine; others plainly show their age.
For example, the issue for August tells
of a sports meet celebrating the Queen's
Birthday; mast climbing, rope climbing,
horse race, rowboat race, fireworks, etc.
Queen Wilhelmina was 11 years old that
birthday.

Telephones were big news in those
days. A news story tells of phone con-
nections now operating between London
and Marseilles, 1300 kilometers apart,
and also that a senor A. Ugueto was
about to install telephones in Curacao.

The riddles were old too. "How many
slices can you get from a whole bread?
Answer: Only one, after that it is not
whole any more.’ And a joke: The
patient says to his doctor ”After I die
will you cut me open? I wanh to know
what I died from.”

In Chicago, 300 people were dying of
the flu every day, and one cemetery had
600 they hadn’t time to bury. (This story
included a warning to watch American
ships closely, so no contagious and
deadly diseases entered Curacao).

In Berlin 20,000 people were jobless,
and in Holland two Germans were
caught manufacturing Dutch coins.
Brazil broke into the news when, as
workers tore down an old castle at Rio,
they unearthed a treasure of gold and
precious stones worth millions of dollars,
probably destined originally for Portu-
gal. In Paris a beggar died at 75, leaving
sewed up in his mattress 60,000 francs
(before inflation, when money was
worth something).

Here at home the rainfall had been
good that year, and Aruba reported a
good crop of beans, peanuts and corn.
Cardboard was scarce, though, and ’’La
Union” expressed regrets that it would
be unable to bind the 1890 copies for
subscribers.

Organization Changes

Two organization changes were an-
nounced in the Process Department in
August. G. L. MacNutt was transferred
to the Western Division of the Process
Department as assistant division super-
intendent in charge of the Light Oils
Finishing Division, and C. J. Griffin was
promoted to the position of assistant
division superintendent in charge of the
Catalytic Department.

Mr. MacNutt came to Aruba as a first
class helper on the Pressure Stills in
1929. He attained the position of process
foreman in 1939 Mr. Griffin started in
Aruba in 1934 as a third class operator
on the Pressure Stills. In 1938 he became
an operator in the Hydro-Alky Plant
and became process foreman in 1941.

Absences for Crop Cultivation
Are Authorized Without Penalty

This year, as in the past, the A.W.O.
L. policy will be waived for four days
in the case of those employees desig-
nated by the Government as having land
on which crops may be grown. Men in
this group are allowed four days off
without pay before January 1, 1947.

Two of the allowable days are usually
taken immediately after the first heavy
rain, and need not be reported to fore-
men in advance. The other two days are
taken from four to eight weeks later in
order to cultivate the crops, and these
days require permission obtained in
advance.

Where necessary, foremen have been

"Education on wheels’’ was the theme
at the Light Oils Department’s class-
room August 29 as the building was
moved with a class in session. In-

structor Garvice Roby and his students
never missed a recitation as the Labor
Department put the classroom on rollers
and moved it 50 feet to make way for
a new building.

"Oranjestad" became the name of the first of the new K.L.M. DC-4’s in the West Indian service,
when Mrs. John G. Eman broke a bottle of champagne over the nose wheel of the big ship at
Dakota Field, August 14. In a short speech, L. F. Bouman, above, head of the West Indies section

of the K.L.M., said the reason Aruba had been chosen as the christening place was that it had

become the hub of the West Indies service. Mr.

Bouman also said Mrs. Eman had been asked

to christen the plane because of the great assistance given by her late husband to K.L.M. when

the service was starting. A.M. Schutte spoke for Lt. Governor Kwartsz, expressing Aruba’s pride

in the honor that had come to it. Godfried Eman, who heads the local K.L.M. agency, also gave

a sbort talk. Service with the new ship began in the last week in August and delivery is expected

on other DC-4's in the near future. Below, the huge plane is seen with the Dakota station building
and the audience of nearly S00 in the background.

"Oranjestad" ta nomber di e promé avion DC-4 di 42 pasahero cu K.L.M. lo usa pa servicio di

Accident reports point out over and over that defective
hand tools are responsible for accidents resulting in personal
injuries. There is, for instance, the case where a chip flew
off the head of a sledge hammer and became lodged in a
man’s knee. Luckily the piece of steel found its way into
the fleshy part of the knee and did not cause any serious
damage. It could have been an entirely different story
— perhaps a permanent disability of the knee if the
splinter had succeeded in entering under the knee cap
Another accident of this sort occurred when a man was
using a worn out wrench with the jaws spread open to
tighten the bolts on a manhole plate. The wrench slipped
off the nut and hit him in the face just below the eye.

One of the most dangerous bad tool conditions is
shown in the photograph. Arrows point to the hanging



curls of metal that can easily break off under a blow,
and fly into a man's face.

Every supervisor should enforce definite rules about

Surinam Club Holds Gala Fair

Featuring games of chance, handicraft
articles from Surinam, and a lavish dis-
play of striking costumes worn by actual
representatives of the many nationalities
to be found at home, the Surinam Club's
four-day fair last month drew large and
enthusiastic crowds.

The fair started August 23 with an
overflow audience in attendance. The
doors opened on the tableaux and cos-
tumes and nationalities pictured atright

A. Schutte represented Lt. Governor
Kwartsz for the opening address, and
after a welcome from J. Simoon, club
president, the crowd moved out to the

fair-grounds
The theme throughout the fair was
the wide range of nationalities and cul-

tures found in Surinam. Costumes re-



presented Indonesians (Java and Cele-
bes), Hindus, Spaniards, Netherlanders,
Chinese, Kotto Missies (whose costumes
date from the time they were freed
slaves), and Djukas (former runaway
slaves). A similar feature was the sale
of food native to many of these groups.

Food and drink were plentiful, games
of chance were numerous and varied,
and a large dance floor rounded out the
entertainment. Well over 3,000 specta-
tors were in attendance the first three
nights of the fair, and it was reopened
for a final evening on August 31

Henry Nassy (of No. 3 Laboratory)
was in charge of all arrangements as
head of the club’s sub-committee for
organizing the fair.

kana (Utilities Office),

water, and sanitary facilities, and erected the flagpole for them.

if the reader has ever wondered how a dredge
chews up the hard bottom of a harbor, let him
take a look at the business end of the dredge
that has been a familiar sight in San Nicolas har-
bor for a number of months. Whi dynamite
comes into play frequently for cracking up the
bottom, the massive teeth chew up the material
before it is sucked into the “spoil” line. The
present dredging job, one of the biggest since the
harbor was opened 19 years ago, includes deepen-
ing the lake tanker berths for the future use of
bigger lakers, dredging a basin for a new ocean
tanker finger pier, and general cleaning up
throughout the harbor.

The preliminaries of wed-
ding bells ringing twice
last month are shown at
right. In the top picture,
receiving a wedding gift
from her fellow em-
ployees at the Hospital
switchboard, Leonor Ma-
duro smiles her thanks
as she accepts a pair of
silver butter knives and
a silver table lamp from
Frida Daal. Leonor was
married to Gerard Pap-
pers of the Dutch Mili-
tary Police (Lago Bri-
gade) in the Catholic
Church in San Nicolas
August 29. A reception
followed the wedding at
Tank Farm 14. Below,
his friends’ wishes of
good luck and a happy
life went with this cash
gift that Cade Abraham
is presenting to Isidoro
Ras on the day before
his marriage to Marga-
ritha Vroolijk. The wed-
ding took place in the
Immaculate Conception
in Santa Cruz, August 29


"The European situation is not very
bright. It is not impossible that we hear
to-morrow or day after to-morrow that
the war, which they have tried to avoid
for years, broke out. How will things be
if there is another war? Remember that
5,000,000 men will fight 4,500,000 men
and with the most terrible of arms. It
will undoubtedly be a massacre the like
of which the world has never seen be-
fore. The troublemaker is Russia, which
quietly lets its ships go by the Darda-
nelles, which they may not do according
to the Treaty of Paris (by which all the
powers promised not to let their war
ships go by the Dardanelles).

England has protested against this
act of Russia, but Turkey answered that
Russia has not violated the treaty, be-
cause all the war ships flew commerce
flags and it is not prohibited for com-
merce ships to go by the Dardanelles.
Russia’s smartness has made it possible
that until now they have let all war
ships pass, provided they flew commerce
flags. Thus 20 war ships passed with
150 thousand men, while in the West
500,000 soldiers stand at the Front. Eng-
land has sent a squadron to the Darda-
nelles to watch the Russian war ships...”

Does it sound like yesterday's news-
paper with the latest international com-
plications ? No, it was written in Curacao
55 years ago.

"Nothing older than yesterday's news-
paper” says the old adage. A newspaper
more than a few days old is dead and
forgotten. After a long time, though, it
reverses the process, and as it ages like
old wine, it takes on new interest with
each year as a picture of the past. Such
is the file of 1891 copies of the Curacao
Catholic publication "La Union” loaned
to the Esso News by S.N. Ecury of
Oranjestad.

Some items, like the English-Russian
situation, read like this week’s Time”
magazine; others plainly show their age.
For example, the issue for August tells
of a sports meet celebrating the Queen's
Birthday; mast climbing, rope climbing,
horse race, rowboat race, fireworks, etc.
Queen Wilhelmina was 11 years old that
birthday.

Telephones were big news in those
days. A news story tells of phone con-
nections now operating between London
and Marseilles, 1300 kilometers apart,
and also that a senor A. Ugueto was
about to install telephones in Curacao.

The riddles were old too. "How many
slices can you get from a whole bread?
Answer: Only one, after that it is not
whole any more.’ And a joke: The
patient says to his doctor ”After I die
will you cut me open? I wanh to know
what I died from.”

In Chicago, 300 people were dying of
the flu every day, and one cemetery had
600 they hadn’t time to bury. (This story
included a warning to watch American
ships closely, so no contagious and
deadly diseases entered Curacao).

In Berlin 20,000 people were jobless,
and in Holland two Germans were
caught manufacturing Dutch coins.
Brazil broke into the news when, as
workers tore down an old castle at Rio,
they unearthed a treasure of gold and
precious stones worth millions of dollars,
probably destined originally for Portu-
gal. In Paris a beggar died at 75, leaving
sewed up in his mattress 60,000 francs
(before inflation, when money was
worth something).

Here at home the rainfall had been
good that year, and Aruba reported a
good crop of beans, peanuts and corn.
Cardboard was scarce, though, and ’’La
Union” expressed regrets that it would
be unable to bind the 1890 copies for
subscribers.

"Situacién europeo no ta
mucho bunita. No ta imposi-
bel, cu mayan o otromayan
nos ta tende cu gera, cu tanto
anja caba nan ta busca di
stroba, lo lamanta cu tur es-
fuerzo, Ai Dios! Com cos lo
bai si es gera bini? Corda
5,000,000 hende y 4,500,000
hende lo bai bringa un con-

mas teribel. Lo ta sin duda
un massacracion manera
mundo no a mira nunca
ainda. Dios duna cu nan ta
keda sinta keto nurra. Motibo
di gera ta Rusia, cu ta larga
su bareonan di gera pasa
keto-keto Dardanelo, loque e
no por haci segun tratado di
Paris, unda tur potencianan
a combini di no laga nan
barco pasa den Dardanelo.

Inglatera a protesta contra
es hecho di Rusia, ma Tur-
quia a responde cu Rusia no
a viola tratado, pasobra tur
barco di gera tabatin ban-
dera di comercio, y no ta
taha cu un bareo di comer-
cio por pasa. Es_ sabidu-
ria di Rusia a haci cu te
awor nan ta larga pasa keto
tur barco di gera, basta cu
nan tin bandera comercial;
20 barco di gera a pasa asina cu 150
mil homber, mientras cu na West
500,000 sold& ta para na frontera. In-
glatera a manda un escuadra Dardanelo
pa vigila barconan di gera ruso...,”

Esaki no ta parce corant di ayera cu
e ultimo complicacionnan internacional?
No, esaki a worde skirbi na Curacao
55 anja pasa.

Ora un corant ta algun dia bieuw e
no ta bal nada mas, ma despues di hopi
anja, cos ta troca y mescos cu bifia
bieuw, e ta bolbe bira interesante como
un bista di den pasado. Esaki nos por
bisa di e coleccién di e corantnan Ca-
tolico "La Unién” di anja 1891 cu S. N.
Ecury di Oranjestad a fia na Aruba
Esso. News.

Algun articulo manera e situacion
entre Inglatera y Rusia ta sona mescos
cu Time” di e siman aki; otronan ta
mustra nan edad. Por ehempel, un nu-
mero di Augustus ta papia di un pro-
grama pa celebra Anja di La_ Reina;
subimento di master y trapi di cabuya;
pustamento di cabai; boto di rema;
fuego artificial, etc. E anja ey La Reina
Wilhelmina a haci 11 anja.

Telefoon tabata noticia grandi e
tempo ey. E corant ta conta di e co-
neccién di telefoon entre London y
Marsella cu ta keda na 1300 kilometer
for di otro, y tambe cu un tal sefior A.
Ugueto lo instala telefoon na Curacao.

E charadanan tambe ta _ bieuw:
»Cuanto sneechi bo por corta di un pan
henter?”’ Contesta: ,,Un s6, pasobra
despues di esey e pan no ta_ henter
mas.” Y un chasco: E pacient ta bisa
su dokter: ,,.Despues cu mi muri, habri
mi, pasobra mi ke sa di kico mi a muri.”

Na Chicago, 300 hende tabata muri
di influenza tur dia y un cementerio ta-
eatin 600 morto cu nan no tabatin tem-



Corantnan bieuw den Teritorio ta e dos corant-

spiertamento pa mas cu nunca rista va-
pornan Americano pa ningun enferme-

Na Berlin tabatin 20,000 hende sin
trabao y na Holanda nan a coge dos
Aleman cu tabata traha placa falso Ho-
landes. Brazil tambe tabata den noticia;
kibrando un palacio bieuw na Rio de Ja-
neiro nan a haya un tesoro di oro y
piedra precioso cu balor di algun millon
di dollar; e tesoro tabata destina pa
Portugal originalmente. Na Paris un
limosnero di 75 anja a muri lagando den
su matras 60,000 frane (promé cu franc

Na tera mes awacero tabata bon e
anja aki y Aruba tabata tin speranza di
un bon cosecha di boonchi, pinda y mai-
