Sev Luydens announces the 100.000th visitor to the refinery Mrs.
Rosalynd Strom of Maryland who is presented a gift by PR/Mar-
keting Manager Frits Beaujon. At right, Mrs. Strom and her grand-
son begin the tour of Lago, one she will probably never forget

On Friday, Februay 1, Lt. Governor
Frans Figaroa pressed a button and
set a sign marked "Aruba Science
Fair Bon Bini" ablaze with lights
at the John F. Kennedy School Can-
teen entrance. This gesture marked
the official opening of the 1979-1980
Aruba Science Fair exhibition spon-
sored by Lago and held from
February 1 through February 8. On
display were twenty-eight projects,
the works of seventy-three students
who represented eight schools on the
island. Of these projects, sixteen
earned prizes. Governor Figaroa
expressed his appreciation for the
organization of the fair and told the
students that Aruba's future deve-
lopment is dependent on their
scientific accomplishments.
Prior to the opening ceremonies,
Aruba Science Fair Committee Se-
cretary Carlos Z. de Cuba welcomed
the guests and visitors to the fair and
introduced ASF Chairman Paul van
Niel, Principal of the John F. Kennedy
Technical School. Mr. van Niel
thanked Lago for sponsoring the fair
and the students and teachers for
making the fair possible, and the

Lago Honors 100,000th Visitor in the Refii

Tuesday, February 12, 1980, was a
special day in the history of the La-
go Refinery Tour Program. To the
outsider, this may have seemed as
just a regular refinery tour day, but
not to Severiano (Sev) Luydens a
Lago annuitant who has been con-

ducting these tours since the pro-
gram's inception in 1952.

As Sev greeted each visitor in his
customary warm manner accompa-
nied by his ever-present broad smile,
he mentally counted the people filing

past him, most of them off-the-island
Suddenly he announced: "Ladies and
gentlemen, may I announce to all of
you, Lago's 100,000th visitor to the
refinery". The surprised visitor turn-
ed out to be Mrs. Rosalynd Strom
of Columbia, Maryland, who came to
Aruba for the first time thirteen years
ago when her son married the daugh-
ter of Ike Cohen of the Talk of the
Town Hotel. Although she returned
several times since then, and was
currently visiting her son and enjoy-
ing the Carnival holidays, this was
her first refinery tour.
As the initial excitement gradually
wore off, Sev introduced Lago's Pu-
blic Relations / Marketing Manager
Frits Beaujon, who congratulated
Mrs. Strom and presented her with
an AM/FM radio a memento of this
milestone and gave a brief history
of Lago's tour program.
Back in 1952, Lago's first tours

incidentally, were the prizes awarded
to the science fair winners. In con-
clusion, Mr. Reitz announced that in
the interest and benefit of Aruba's
youth, Lago will continue to finan-
cially support future science fairs.
Among the many guests present at
the opening ceremonies were Lago's
President Jerry Golden, Island De-
puty of Education Grace Barefio,
members of Parliament, several go-
vernment department heads, princi-
pals and teachers of various island
schools, the press media and parents
of participants in the science fair.

members of the jury, Inspector of
Education Richard Harms, Lago's
Employee Relations Manager Henry
F. Coffi and Agricultural Expert Tom
Barmes, and thanked them especially
for their difficult task in selecting the
winning projects. Mr. Barmes was
then invited to announce the winners
and to present the prizes.
Afterwards, Mr. van Niel called
upon Lago's Technical Manager Dick
Reitz, who represented the Company
at the ASF opening. In his speech,
Mr. Reitz congratulated the winners
and urged all the students to conti-
nue to advance in the field of tech-
nology. He further expressed his
appreciation to all those who helped
make this year's Aruba Science Fair
a success: the participating students
in particular, their parents, their
teachers and project leaders, mem-
bers of the Aruba Science Fair Com-
mittee, the judges and all others who
gave a helping hand.
Mr. Reitz proceeded to give a brief
history of the Science Fair which
Lago has sponsored for the eighth
time and gave some examples of
what technology has done for us to

Industrial Hygiene & Safety Division Engages

Experts to Study Noise
In an industry such as ours, noise
is an unavoidable part of operations.
High noise levels can be unpleasant
and may also affect hearing ability af-
ter prolonged exposure. Although all
employees in our refinery are provi-
ded with the best ear protective de-
vices available and are regularly che-
cked by the Medical Department, it is
essential to know where and how
much employees are being exposed
over the time.
This "where" and "how much" is
determined through special studies
that examine employee work patterns.
The data gathered by these studies
serves as a guide in any equipment
noise reduction effort that may sub-
sequently be necessary.

Recently, Lago engaged the servi-
ces of Donley, Miller, Nowikas, Inc.,
an acoustical consulting firm in New
Jersey to conduct a noise exposure
study to compile data on specific
areas. From January 14 to February
5, Tom Miller and Tom Bragg of
DM&N studied the work patterns and
noise levels in various work areas in
the refinery, especially those of the
Process and Mechanical Departments.
Their study included conducting ma-
ny tests, taking various noise level
readings, tape-recording noisy areas
and interviewing key supervisors.
More than anything, these interviews
served to estimate the length of time
employees are exposed in high noise
There are many areas in the refine-
ry where employees do not actually
work but merely pass through or

drive by. Obviously such areas, al-
though perhaps noisy, are not of equal
concern in a noise exposure study.
The data collected during this stu-
dy completed by Tom Miller and Tom
Bragg will be run on a DM&N compu-
ter program in the U.S.A. to produce
a priority list of exposure areas. Sub-
sequent evaluations of these areas

were chiefly for family members of
the Lago Vocational School students
to give them an opportunity to see
where their son or brother was being
trained in new trades and skills. Af-
ter the tour program was formally de-
dicated at the former Reception Cen-

literally hundreds of employee relati-

special invitation of Lago's Public Re-
lations Department. As interest in
the refinery tours continued growing,

ganizations. Later on, members of
local clubs and organizations and
special off-the-island visitors began
requesting a Lago tour until it be-
came a scheduled weekly activity
encompassing visitors from all walks
of life. Those who have toured the
refinery in the past 27 years include
royalty, Exxon executives, high gov-
ernment officials, the clergy, popular
singers and movie stars, beauty
queens, and many island tourists,
who nowadays can arrange for a La-
go tour directly from the hotels where
they are staying. To help promote


the tourist industry in Aruba, Lago
cooperates with the Aruba Hotel and
Tourist Association (AHATA) and the
Aruba Tourist Bureau by offering
these refinery tours. Many package
tours include the refinery on their
itinerary, and over the years Lago has
become a tourist attraction.
Other refinery tour milestones
were achieved on September 4, 1959,
when Mrs. Eliza Bonifacia Lopez, wife
of a Lago annuitant, became the
25,000th visitor, and on May 17, 1965,
when Lago annuitant Thomas (Tony)
