Work Starts on Addition
To Main Office Building
To House IBM Equipment
With J. J. P. Oduber handling the
pavement buster, ground was broken
this month for the addition to the Main
Office Building that will house the Com-
pany's IBM equipment. Located at the
southwest corner of the Main Building,
the addition will provide space for the
present International Business Machines,
as well as for the considerable amount
of new equipment that the Company has
on order.
The addition will be constructed of
reinforced concrete framing, having the
same general appearance as the present
structure. In size it will have approxi-
mately one-sixth the floor space of the
present Main Building.
The Company has on order approxi-
mately 60 per cent more IBM equipment
than it presently has, and it is planned
to start operation in the new addition
by the first of the year. Main purpose
of the new equipment is to provide more
efficient statistical and accounting met-
hods of the Company's increased opera-
tions. One of the main projects of the
increased equipment will be the inaugu-
ration of a cost control system, in which
the maintenance cost on various units
will be furnished to the foreman and the
Cost Control Committee. Other opera-
tions will include cost analysis, statisti-
cal work for estimating purposes, job
order work, and other work of an ac-
counting nature.
In charge of the IBM equipment will
be Mr. Oduber, head of the Tabulating
and Statistical Division of the Accoun-
ting Department.

them in the years beyond their active
working life.
Ten of the men were honored in a
special meeting at the Executive Office
September 15. (One had already left for
his home in St. Martin.) Taking part in
the ceremony were directors, depart-
ment heads, and supervisors of the men.
On behalf of Management, O. Mingus,
acting general manager, thanked the
men for their long periods of service,
and wished, them- health and happiness
in the years to come.
Each of the men spoke briefly,
expressing pleasure with the fair treat-
ment that has recognized their faithful
service, now and in the past.
Most of the men had been with Lago
since its earliest days in Aruba. The
oldest, 77, is Simon Wernet of Receiving
& Shipping, with 20 years of service in
that department. Albert Chittick, 66,
completed 16 years of service in the
Shipyard. Johannes Feliciano, 69, had 14
years with the Company; he started in
the Labor Department, and had been in
the Engineering Department since 1936.
Benedito Geerman, 66, had 23 years
service, first with the Shipyard and
later with the Carpenter Department.
Richard Brown, 68, was with the Com-
pany for 17 years; first a boilermaker,
he transferred to the machinists in 1939.
Sinforoso Maduro, 69, had 23 years ser-
vice on the wharves. Juan Kelly, 65, had
14 years service; his time was divided
between Labor Department, Personnel,
and Stewards Department. Johannes
Thiel, 65, was with the Shipyard for 14
years. Karel Ponson, 72, was a carpenter
with the Shipyard for 20 years. Rudolf
Croes, 70, had 21 years of service in the
Pipe Department. Leopold Dean, 66, was
with the Company from February 1930
to May 1931, and had continuous service
in the Instrument Department since

nath, the jeweler, was to go to the win-
ning team.
Appropriate ceremonies were planned
to commemorate the official opening of
the field. Main purpose of the new field

Swimming Has Its Safety Rules

Swimming is fine exercise, but only for those in physical
condition to do it without harm. As in any other activity
there are certain simple safety rules which should be follow-
ed by all swimmers:
Wait for a time after meals before swimming: a two-hour
wait is recommended.
Never dive into strange water. Know depth and bottom
are safe.
Never swim alone.
Watch for dangerous undertows and big waves in large
bodies of water.
Don't swim beyond your strength. Remember, it's just as
far back to the beach as it is away from it.
Never call for help in the water if you don't need it.
Learn how to apply artificial respiration.

F. E. Griffin Attends
Harvard Business Course
Process Superintendent F. E. Griffin
left for the States last month to attend
a 13-week course in executive training
at the Harvard Business School. The
course is a phase in the Company's
policy of developing members of its
management group along broad, pro-
gressive lines, as well as in line with its
policy of developing its leaders from
within the organization.
Students in the course include
executives from
various compa-
nies all over the
p Americas'. They
attend class from
8:30 in the mor-
ning until 5 in
the afternoon.
The men live in
dormitories with
other members
of the class, thus
making it pos-
e *, ae sible for them to
share the bene-
F. E. Griffin fits of their vary-
ing backgrounds.
Rather than employ outsiders for
executive portions, it is Jersey Stan-
dard's policy to have top management
consist of men who have come up
through the organization, broadening
their talents from the specific job in
which they started to more general abi-
lities. Because supervisors are often re-
stricted to the steady, exacting require-
ments of their particular job, their
vision is confined to that one field. This
executive training course at Harvard is
designed to give selected men an op-
portunity cr further de-veopment.
Mr. Griffin came to Lago in 1929 as
an oil inspector in the Proce:s Lab. lIe
later became a stillman, general foreman
in Process h Cracking, gener l foreman in
Light Oils Finishing, assistant division
superintendent, and then division super-
intendent in L.O.F. He became process
superintendent in 1946.

( Curagao to Get Luxury Hotel
With preparation of the site already
in progress, construction of Curacac's
new luxury scas de hotel is scheduled to
begin in December. The hotel will be
seven stories high, and will have 63
bedrooms. Most of the hotel's public
rooms, as well as some of the bedrooms,
will have air conditioning. The plans also
call for the construction of a casino,
tennis courts, and a swimming pool.
The Government is preparing the site,
which will be given to a private company
on a long-term lease.

IBM Operator's Course

Gets Under Way Here

The Company's first IBM operator's
training course got under way this week
when ten employees began their period
of training. Beginning on September 20,
the program is scheduled to last until
the first of the year.
Purpose of the course is to train new
operators to use all the different types
of International Business Machines in
use here, as well as the considerable
amount of new IBM equipment which
the Company has ordered. Men finishing
the course will also supplement the
present force of operators.
The program of instruction will con-
sist of classroom work ,actual instruc-
tion on the IBM machines, and practical
on-the-job training. Wherever possible
this will be supplemented by training
films and other visual aids.
For the present the program will con-
c.st of two hours instruction a day dur-
ing working hours. The remainder of the
day will be devoted to on-the-job train-
ing. Later, as the members of the class
begin to use the machines, their training
will be held after working hours so as
not to inctfere with the department's
normal operations.
J. J. P. Oduber and R. F. Croes, of the
Tabulating and Statistical Division, are
in charge of the training.

Creole Building Pip e ne
Between Maracaibo and Amuay
One of the world's biggest and most
up-to-date pipelines is being constructed
by the Creole Petroleum Corporation in
Venezuela at a cost of approximately
The pipeline, with diameters varying
from 24 to 26 inches, will move crude
oil from Creole's tank farm at U16 on
the eastern shores of Lake Maracaibo to
the Company's new refinery at Amuay
Bay, a distance of 153 miles.
Started May 1, 1947, the Ule-Amuay
pipeline is expected to be completed by
December 1, 1948. At that time Creole
engineers plan to start pumping oil
through the line at the rate of 200,000
barrels daily. By the end of the year
they intend to step the line up to its
capacity flow of between 300,000 and
325,000 barrels daily.
The Amuay refinery will process up
to 60,000 barrels of the Maracaibo crude
daily into petroleum products. The re-
mainder will be piped into storage tanks
from which it will later be shipped
aboard ocean tankers for delivery to
foreign markets.

Esso Adapts Wartime Fuel
As an Industrial Product

Application of thickened fuel a
wartime development that provided a
more effective fuel for flame throwers
and incendiary bombs as an industrial
product that will aid power generation
was reported recently by the Esso
Standard Oil Company.
The product is a fuel igniter made of
thickened Diesel oil that will fire stoker-
fed industrial boilers to full operating
steam pressure in 30 minutes compared
with eight hours usually required by
wood and local kindling. Reduction of
the time required for a full head of
steam eliminates the need for stand-by
emergency fires, the company pointed
out, and effects substantial savings in
coal consumption.
The fuel igniter has a semi-fluid, jelly-
like consistency and can be applied in
nests along the boiler grate well in ad-
vance of use. It clings to the coal, burns
slowly, and with sufficient intensity to
fire the coal. A paper torch can be used
to ignite the fuel.

With only two games to be played
before the regular season ended, the
Caribe team last week headed the
entries in the Lago softball league.
Caribe was scheduled to play Baby Ruth
last Sunday. The only other game to be
played is a replay of the Bicho Malo-
Los Tigres game of September 5, which
ended after 14 innings in a 4-4 tie.
In the other game of September 5 the
Dodgers beat Baby Ruth, 2-1.

Who is this man? if you're like several dozen other Lago employees, you've seen him
aroemd, and even have a vague but incorrect idea where he works. The picture was
taken at the Sport Park while he was watching the Queen's Birthday events. In an
effort to Identify him, the picture has been shown to practically every Lago employee
but the man himself. One said he worked at the Colony Commissary. No one there
re egniled him, but someone said he worked at the Plant Commissary. Not so, they
aid there, but didn't he work at the Dry Dock? And the endless chain continued,
with several dxoen employees eventually seeing the picture, but with none able to
identify him. New the entire matter has pyramided into the moment's biggest mystery.
Who Is the man? What's his daughter's name? Where does he work? Will Dick Tracy
be able to outwit Ruthless Robin? Anyone with the answer is asked to notify the
Ese News office, phone 523. The first person to send in the correct answer will re-
eolve a free copy of last Christmas' edition of the Aruba Esso News.
