Lago Annuitants’ Month

Together with their retirement
check of July 1, 1980, Lago’s 1500
annuitants received a letter from La-
go’s President G. E. Golden announ-
cing the approval of another Annuity
Supplement Program which will in-
crease their monthly income. In con-
nection with this post-retirement an-
nuity supplement — Lago’s tenth
since 1971 — we asked President G.
E. Golden some questions :

Q. Mr. Golden, much is written
and said these days about the ef-
fects of inflation on the income of
annuitants. How does Lago view
this problem ?

A. This is a problem for anyone who
must live on a relatively fixed amount
of income. It is a problem faced in
just about every country and there
are no simple solutions.

Clearly, it is a problem requiring
the effort of the government, the em-
ployer and the person himself.

The government has not only to
confront the conditions that are work-

ing to stimulate the inflationary spiral
but also to establish a national pro-
gram of old age benefits that take in-
flation into account. In the Nether-
lands Antilles the Government's pro-
gram does respond to movement in
the cost of living index.

The individual should build into his
personal retirement planning the re-
cognition that inflation will probably
continue during his retirement years.
With this in mind, one should plan
ahead while one is still employed, to
increase financial security during the
retirement years.

As for Lago itself, we recognize
that pension income is reduced by
the inflation in the same manner as
wages. This is one of the reasons
we improved the pension plan last
year so that pensions now are based
on an employee’s earnings’ level
near the end of one’s career rather
than on the average over a career.
This means that inflation at least to

Entrada Mensual di Pensionista di Lago Hiza
Bao Lago su Programa di Suplemento di Pension

Hunto cu nan check di pension di
1 di Juli 1980, Lago su 1500 pensio-
nistanan a recibi un carta for di Pre-
sidente di Lago Sr. G. E. Golden
anunciando aprobacion di un otro
Programa di Suplemento pa Pension
cual lo aumenta nan entrada men-
sual. En ¢ cion cu e Suplemen-
to di Pensi spues di retiro aki —
su di diez desde 1971 — nos a
haci Presidente Golden algun pregun-
ta:








P. Sr. Golden, hopi ta ser skirbi y
bisa e temponan aki tocante di e
efectonan di inflacion ariba entra-
da di pensionistanan. Com Lago
ta mira e problema aki ?

C. Esaki ta un problema pa cualkier
persona cu mester biba ariba un en-
trada relativamente fiho. Esaki ta
un problema enfrenta den practica-
mente tur pais y no tin solucionnan
simple pesey.

Claramente, esaki ta un problema
cual ta requeri esfuerzonan di gobier-
no, donjo di trabao y e persona mes.

Gobierno no solamente mester con-
fronta cu e condicionnan cu ta tra-
hando pa stimula e curva inflaciona-
rio, pero tambe pa establece un pro-
grama nacional di beneficio pa behez
cual ta tuma inflacion den considera-
cion. Den Antillas Neerlandes e pro-
grama di Gobierno ta ahusta na
cambionan den e indice di costo di
bida

E individuo mester crea den su pla-
neamento personal pa retiro e reco-
nocimiento cu inflacion probablemen-
te lo continua durante su anjanan di
retiro. Cu esaki en mente, el mester
planea for di antemano, mientras cu
ainda el ta emplea, pa aumenta se-
guridad financiero durante e anjanan
di retiro.

Den caso di Lago mes, nos ta re-
conoce cu entrada di pension ta ser
reduci door di inflacion na e mesun
manera cu salario. Esey ta un di e
motibonan pakiko nos a mehora e
plan di pension anja pasa pa asina
pensionnan ta basa awor ariba un
persona su nivel di ganashi cerca di
e fin di su carera en vez di ariba e
averahe di su carera. Esaki kier
meen cu inflacion ta refleha por lo
menos den cuminzamento di retiro
den entrada di pension.

Despues di retiro, Compania a asis-
ti pensionistanan pa medio di su Pro-
gramanan di Suplementacion di Pen-
sion.

P. Bo por bisa nos algo tocante di
e Programanan di Suplementacion
di Pension aki ?

C. Tur anja for di 1971 Gerencia di
Lago a studia e movimiento of cam-
bionan den costo di bida den Antillas
Neerlandes y ora cu e indice di cos-
to di bida a move significantemente,
nos a duna pensionistanan di Lago
un suplemento pa yuda reemplaza al-
go di e capacidad pa cumpra cu a
ser perdi pa motibo di inflacion.

P. E programanan aki ta costoso ?

C. Sigur cu si. Naturalmente, ta de-
pende na ki porcentahe e inflacion ta
ocurri. For di 1974 Lago a otorga yu-
danza na nos pensionistanan di 8.5
million florin.

E programa mas reciente aproba
pa e anja aki cuminzando 1 di Juli
1980 lo costa Lago como 1.8 million

"The pension supplement clearly demon-
strates Lago’s concern for its annuitants.”
says President Jerry Golden.

"E suplemento di pension claramente ta

demonstra Lago su preocupacion pa su

pensionistanan,”” Presidente Jerry Golden
ta bisa.

Annuitant’s Monthly Income Gets Boost |

(Continued from page 1)

the point of retirement is reflected in
pension income.

After retirement, the Company has
aided annuitants through its Annuity
Supplementation Programs.

Q. Can you tell us something
about these Annuity Supplementa-
tion Programs ?

A. Each year since 1971 Lago Man-
agement has reviewed the cost of li-
ving movement in the Netherlands
Antilles and when the cost of living
index moved significantly, we granted
Lago annuitants a supplement to
help replace some of the purchasing
power lost to inflation.

Q. Are these programs costly ?

A. Yes, they are. Naturally, it de-
pends on the rate of inflation that oc-
curs. Since 1974 Lago has granted
assistance to our annuitants of 8.5
million Florins.

The Program most recently approv-
ed for the year beginning July 1,
1980, will cost Lago about 1.8 million
Florins and will benefit about 1500
Lago annuitants.

Q. You say these are annual pro-
grams. Does this mean they can
be discontinued ?

A. We do review the facts each year
and there is no guarantee that the

Program will be renewed from year
to year. It depends on the inflation
rate and the Company's financial con-
dition.

However, we have renewed the
Program in each of the past ten
years. | think this clearly demonstra-
tes Lago’s interest in helping our an-+
nuitants to enjoy their retirements
more fully.

Seroe Colorado fourth graders invited Dr. Hartog, Dutch author of many books
on the history of the Netherlands Antilles to answer questions on the history of
Aruba. The half-hour session was so interesting, that Dr. Hartog himself volun-
teered to return for a one-hour session on May 27. For the students it was a
wonderful opportunity to talk to the Dutch historian, and for Dr. Hartog himself,
the experience was quite unique. Although he gave many lectures on history in
the past, this was his first direct contact with children, an occasion which gave
him much satisfaction.

Lago Helps American Airlines Meet Target
For Replacement of DC-10 Engine in Aruba

As the gigantic American Airlines
DC-10 N124AA was getting ready to
leave Aruba on Sunday, May 25, Ame-
rican Airlines Mechanic Lothar van
Eer discovered a problem with the
aircraft's rear engine during a rou-
tine pre-departure maintenance in-
spection. American Airlines authori-
ties on the island cancelled the flight
to New York via Curacao and arrang-
ed for the arrival of another DC-10
from Puerto Rico a few hours later.

In an unprecedented situation in
Aruba, in which Lago would play an
important role, AA’s representatives
decided to replace the engine right
here at the Princess Beatrix Airport,
as soon as a replacement arrived
from their headquarters in Tulsa,
Oklahoma along with a team of AA
technicians. The entire operation of
removal, installation and testing of
the new equipment was set at 72
hours. AA’s General Manager for the
Netherlands Antilles Mr. David W.
Cook and his assistant Mr. Ceferino
Mendez moved fast to make the ne-
cessary arrangements to meet the
deadline. Because of the location of
the engine high up at the rear end of
the plane, a special platform was re-
quired to enable the AA technicians
to work freely, comfortably and safe-
ly. The erection of the platform had
to begin right away, pending the ar-
rival of the team who were bringing
all necessary equipment and accesso-

ries for the mechanical operation the
same day.

After exhausting their resources,
AA authorities contacted Lago for as-
sistance on Monday morning. The
Mechanical Department was given
their request and Mr. Edgar Coffi of
Lago’s Refinery Maintenance Zone
was dispatched immediately to size
up the needs. He set everything in
motion to provide the necessary scaf-
fold material and contracted manpo-
wer from Aruba Painting so that a
30-ft high platform could be erected
in the minimum time possible. The
platform would have to support simul-
taneously ten men engaged in the re-
moval/installation operation.

In nine hours — from 2 p.m. to 11
p.m., fourteen men erected the high
structure around the rear end of the
DC-10. While preliminary work be-
gan by the airline team, Lago’s con-
tracted men used about 100 ’’Gold
Medal” scaffold piping to erect the
structure and installed the required
planks for the platform, under guid-
ance of two Aruba Painting supervi-
sors. The overall operation was al-
ternately supervised and coordinated
by Edgar Coffi of the Refinery Main-
tenance Zone and Pedro Arends of
the Contract Execution Zone.

In the hours which followed, seven-
teen airline technicians — in inter-
changing shifts — worked at a fever-

In a gesture of appreciation towards
their alma mater, six Lago engineers
met with an HTS student on practical
training at Lago to enjoy dinner at
the Cattle Baron Restaurant on Fri-
day, June 13. The pleasant reunion
was to honor the HTS Dordrecht in
Holland, which has molded their ca-
reers and which, they feel, has indi-
rectly contributed to the welfare and
progress of our island.

During the very animated reunion,
wherein the group reminisced over
the wonderful and sometimes hectic
college year, the engineers honored
their college by presenting a plaque
to Jacinto Ras, the final-year HTS
Dordrecht student who will be return-
ing to Holland next month. He in
turn, will make the official presenta-
tion on behalf of Lago’s engineers
and will convey their message of lo-
yalty and appreciation to the HTS fa-
culty of Dordrecht.

The idea to honor the Dordrecht
institution occurred somo time ago,
when a group of engineers were dis-
cussing their college years, and dis-
covered that several among them had
studied at Dordrecht. After checking

1eed to ma stantial improve-
ment in the quality of our work place.
As Nelo explains, there are two

key-elements in this program which
make it different from "housekeeping
programs” in the past. Firstly, there
is the commitment by Management to
continuously emphasize and support
housekeeping as a high priority acti-
vity. To this end, Nelo is currently
defining standards and procedures to
be adopted by Executive Manage-
ment as a "Lago Housekeeping Po-
licy”.

The second key-element is to mo-
tivate the individual employee to
“work clean” as a habit. It is the



responsibility of each one of us to
maintain our work place clean and
nobody should have the illusion that
cleaning up is someone else’s res-
ponsibility.

To meet this goal, Nelo is develo-
ping a program to correct and impro-
ve facilities and conditions, deterio-
rated by the elements of Mother Na-
ture. The program will also improve
the general appearance of some re-
finery areas to meet the standards,
and thus provide the employees with
a clean environment. But, in addi-
tion, the employees will be provided
with the training, tools and facilities
to sustain good housekeeping in their
respective areas. Through contacts
and sessions with the employees and
supervisors, Nelo hopes to establish
an exchange of information: the
group’s input to Lago’s housekee-
ping efforts, and Management's con-
tinuing emphasis on sustained good
housekeeping practices.

It is obvious that this effort will re-
quire the support and participation
of every Lago employee. With your
cooperation, we will have at all times
a clean working environment at Lago,
because we deserve it. Off-and-on
clean-up campaigns will then belong
to the past.

Record Number of Students
In Summer Training Program

On June 16, forty students, who are
on vacation from colleges abroad,
started at Lago under the Company’s
Summer Training Program for College
Students. They were welcomed at
the Administration Building by Elias
Fingal and Stefford Courtar of the
Employee Relations Department after
which followed an introduction about
the Lago organization and the stu-
dents’ responsibilities during their as-
signments. At the end of their orien-
tation program, which included a re-
finery tour, their supervisors or con-
tact person during the eight-week
training program, took them to their
respective work location.

Over sixty students — a record num-
ber — applied for participation in the
summer training program this year.
The forty students accepted in the
program — also a record — repre-
sent the majority of applicants, all of
them who were placed in the mean-
ingful jobs available in the company.
In their selecton, priority was given
to students whose educational back-
ground best matches the available
job opportunities.

In what may be deemed a learn-
and-earn program, the students are
given the opportunity to become ac-
quainted with a work environment
which may give them the experience
they need for their future careers.

The Summer Training Program will
close on August 8, 1980.

— according to plan — the DC-10 re-

played a major role in beginning the
mechanical operations without delay,
enabling the airline authorities to

plan. At the same time, Lago’s coo-

Lago Annuitants’ Month

Together with their retirement
check of July 1, 1980, Lago’s 1500
annuitants received a letter from La-
go’s President G. E. Golden announ-
cing the approval of another Annuity
Supplement Program which will in-
crease their monthly income. In con-
nection with this post-retirement an-
nuity supplement — Lago’s tenth
since 1971 — we asked President G.
E. Golden some questions :

Q. Mr. Golden, much is written
and said these days about the ef-
fects of inflation on the income of
annuitants. How does Lago view
this problem ?

A. This is a problem for anyone who
must live on a relatively fixed amount
of income. It is a problem faced in
just about every country and there
are no simple solutions.

Clearly, it is a problem requiring
the effort of the government, the em-
ployer and the person himself.

The government has not only to
confront the conditions that are work-

ing to stimulate the inflationary spiral
but also to establish a national pro-
gram of old age benefits that take in-
flation into account. In the Nether-
lands Antilles the Government's pro-
gram does respond to movement in
the cost of living index.

The individual should build into his
personal retirement planning the re-
cognition that inflation will probably
continue during his retirement years.
With this in mind, one should plan
ahead while one is still employed, to
increase financial security during the
retirement years.

As for Lago itself, we recognize
that pension income is reduced by
the inflation in the same manner as
wages. This is one of the reasons
we improved the pension plan last
year so that pensions now are based
on an employee’s earnings’ level
near the end of one’s career rather
than on the average over a career.
This means that inflation at least to

Entrada Mensual di Pensionista di Lago Hiza
Bao Lago su Programa di Suplemento di Pension

Hunto cu nan check di pension di
1 di Juli 1980, Lago su 1500 pensio-
nistanan a recibi un carta for di Pre-
sidente di Lago Sr. G. E. Golden
anunciando aprobacion di un otro
Programa di Suplemento pa Pension
cual lo aumenta nan entrada men-
sual. En ¢ cion cu e Suplemen-
to di Pensi spues di retiro aki —
su di diez desde 1971 — nos a
haci Presidente Golden algun pregun-
ta:








P. Sr. Golden, hopi ta ser skirbi y
bisa e temponan aki tocante di e
efectonan di inflacion ariba entra-
da di pensionistanan. Com Lago
ta mira e problema aki ?

C. Esaki ta un problema pa cualkier
persona cu mester biba ariba un en-
trada relativamente fiho. Esaki ta
un problema enfrenta den practica-
mente tur pais y no tin solucionnan
simple pesey.

Claramente, esaki ta un problema
cual ta requeri esfuerzonan di gobier-
no, donjo di trabao y e persona mes.

Gobierno no solamente mester con-
fronta cu e condicionnan cu ta tra-
hando pa stimula e curva inflaciona-
rio, pero tambe pa establece un pro-
grama nacional di beneficio pa behez
cual ta tuma inflacion den considera-
cion. Den Antillas Neerlandes e pro-
grama di Gobierno ta ahusta na
cambionan den e indice di costo di
bida

E individuo mester crea den su pla-
neamento personal pa retiro e reco-
nocimiento cu inflacion probablemen-
te lo continua durante su anjanan di
retiro. Cu esaki en mente, el mester
planea for di antemano, mientras cu
ainda el ta emplea, pa aumenta se-
guridad financiero durante e anjanan
di retiro.

Den caso di Lago mes, nos ta re-
conoce cu entrada di pension ta ser
reduci door di inflacion na e mesun
manera cu salario. Esey ta un di e
motibonan pakiko nos a mehora e
plan di pension anja pasa pa asina
pensionnan ta basa awor ariba un
persona su nivel di ganashi cerca di
e fin di su carera en vez di ariba e
averahe di su carera. Esaki kier
meen cu inflacion ta refleha por lo
menos den cuminzamento di retiro
den entrada di pension.

Despues di retiro, Compania a asis-
ti pensionistanan pa medio di su Pro-
gramanan di Suplementacion di Pen-
sion.

P. Bo por bisa nos algo tocante di
e Programanan di Suplementacion
di Pension aki ?

C. Tur anja for di 1971 Gerencia di
Lago a studia e movimiento of cam-
bionan den costo di bida den Antillas
Neerlandes y ora cu e indice di cos-
to di bida a move significantemente,
nos a duna pensionistanan di Lago
un suplemento pa yuda reemplaza al-
go di e capacidad pa cumpra cu a
ser perdi pa motibo di inflacion.

P. E programanan aki ta costoso ?

C. Sigur cu si. Naturalmente, ta de-
pende na ki porcentahe e inflacion ta
ocurri. For di 1974 Lago a otorga yu-
danza na nos pensionistanan di 8.5
million florin.

E programa mas reciente aproba
pa e anja aki cuminzando 1 di Juli
1980 lo costa Lago como 1.8 million

Annuitant’s Monthly Income Gets Boost |

(Continued from page 1)

the point of retirement is reflected in
pension income.

After retirement, the Company has
aided annuitants through its Annuity
Supplementation Programs.

Q. Can you tell us something
about these Annuity Supplementa-
tion Programs ?

A. Each year since 1971 Lago Man-
agement has reviewed the cost of li-
ving movement in the Netherlands
Antilles and when the cost of living
index moved significantly, we granted
Lago annuitants a supplement to
help replace some of the purchasing
power lost to inflation.

Q. Are these programs costly ?

A. Yes, they are. Naturally, it de-
pends on the rate of inflation that oc-
curs. Since 1974 Lago has granted
assistance to our annuitants of 8.5
million Florins.

The Program most recently approv-
ed for the year beginning July 1,
1980, will cost Lago about 1.8 million
Florins and will benefit about 1500
Lago annuitants.

Q. You say these are annual pro-
grams. Does this mean they can
be discontinued ?

A. We do review the facts each year
and there is no guarantee that the

Program will be renewed from year
to year. It depends on the inflation
rate and the Company's financial con-
dition.

However, we have renewed the
Program in each of the past ten
years. | think this clearly demonstra-
tes Lago’s interest in helping our an-+
nuitants to enjoy their retirements
more fully.

Seroe Colorado fourth graders invited Dr. Hartog, Dutch author of many books
on the history of the Netherlands Antilles to answer questions on the history of
Aruba. The half-hour session was so interesting, that Dr. Hartog himself volun-
teered to return for a one-hour session on May 27. For the students it was a
wonderful opportunity to talk to the Dutch historian, and for Dr. Hartog himself,
the experience was quite unique. Although he gave many lectures on history in
the past, this was his first direct contact with children, an occasion which gave
him much satisfaction.

Lago Helps American Airlines Meet Target
For Replacement of DC-10 Engine in Aruba

As the gigantic American Airlines
DC-10 N124AA was getting ready to
leave Aruba on Sunday, May 25, Ame-
rican Airlines Mechanic Lothar van
Eer discovered a problem with the
aircraft's rear engine during a rou-
tine pre-departure maintenance in-
spection. American Airlines authori-
ties on the island cancelled the flight
to New York via Curacao and arrang-
ed for the arrival of another DC-10
from Puerto Rico a few hours later.

In an unprecedented situation in
Aruba, in which Lago would play an
important role, AA’s representatives
decided to replace the engine right
here at the Princess Beatrix Airport,
as soon as a replacement arrived
from their headquarters in Tulsa,
Oklahoma along with a team of AA
technicians. The entire operation of
removal, installation and testing of
the new equipment was set at 72
hours. AA’s General Manager for the
Netherlands Antilles Mr. David W.
Cook and his assistant Mr. Ceferino
Mendez moved fast to make the ne-
cessary arrangements to meet the
deadline. Because of the location of
the engine high up at the rear end of
the plane, a special platform was re-
quired to enable the AA technicians
to work freely, comfortably and safe-
ly. The erection of the platform had
to begin right away, pending the ar-
rival of the team who were bringing
all necessary equipment and accesso-

ries for the mechanical operation the
same day.

After exhausting their resources,
AA authorities contacted Lago for as-
sistance on Monday morning. The
Mechanical Department was given
their request and Mr. Edgar Coffi of
Lago’s Refinery Maintenance Zone
was dispatched immediately to size
up the needs. He set everything in
motion to provide the necessary scaf-
fold material and contracted manpo-
wer from Aruba Painting so that a
30-ft high platform could be erected
in the minimum time possible. The

In nine hours — from 2 p.m. to 11
p.m., fourteen men erected the high
structure around the rear end of the
DC-10. While preliminary work be-
gan by the airline team, Lago’s con-
tracted men used about 100 ’’Gold
Medal” scaffold piping to erect the
structure and installed the required
planks for the platform, under guid-
ance of two Aruba Painting supervi-
sors. The overall operation was al-
ternately supervised and coordinated
by Edgar Coffi of the Refinery Main-

In a gesture of appreciation towards
their alma mater, six Lago engineers
met with an HTS student on practical
training at Lago to enjoy dinner at
the Cattle Baron Restaurant on Fri-
day, June 13. The pleasant reunion
was to honor the HTS Dordrecht in
Holland, which has molded their ca-
reers and which, they feel, has indi-
rectly contributed to the welfare and
progress of our island.

During the very animated reunion,
wherein the group reminisced over
the wonderful and sometimes hectic
college year, the engineers honored
their college by presenting a plaque
to Jacinto Ras, the final-year HTS
Dordrecht student who will be return-
ing to Holland next month. He in
turn, will make the official presenta-
tion on behalf of Lago’s engineers
and will convey their message of lo-
yalty and appreciation to the HTS fa-
culty of Dordrecht.

The idea to honor the Dordrecht
institution occurred somo time ago,
when a group of engineers were dis-
cussing their college years, and dis-
covered that several among them had
studied at Dordrecht. After checking

For Contribution In Their Career Development

around, they found out that there are
presently six Dordrecht HTS gradua-
tes employed at Lago. Because all
of them had much praise for the
school’s system and faculty, they de-
cided to have a plaque made with an
appropiate inscription as lasting proof
of their gratitude and admiration for
the college.

The plaque, in a scroll design and
with the inscription "To HTS Dor-
drecht in appreciation of efforts ex-
pended in shaping our careers’ and
listing the names of the ex-students,
was presented to Jacinto Ras by Hen-
drik Fujooah in the presence of the
engineers and their guests. Of the
group, Hendrik is the Dordrecht gra-
duate with the most Lago service —
ten years. He is a Chemist in Techni-

Alvin Koolman, who studied Chemi-

Nelo Emerencia To Set Up Housekeeping Policy
Stressing Management/Employee Involvement

Since early June, Nelo Emerencia
has undertaken a special assignment
of CLEAR (Clean Environs Aruba) Ad-
ministrator. His responsibilities will
encompass the development, imple-
mentation, supervision and steward-
ship of a program to upgrade the

é arance and housekeeping

of the entire refinery
compl In this new job, Nelo is re-
porting directly to the Process and
Mechanical Managers, and will be
working with tt sion Superinten-
artments. The esta-
iment of this position reflects Ma-
g on and perceived

Ov | ap







1e Div







1eed to ma stantial improve-
ment in the quality of our work place.
As Nelo explains, there are two

key-elements in this program which
make it different from "housekeeping
programs” in the past. Firstly, there
is the commitment by Management to
continuously emphasize and support
housekeeping as a high priority acti-
vity. To this end, Nelo is currently
defining standards and procedures to
be adopted by Executive Manage-
ment as a "Lago Housekeeping Po-
licy”.

The second key-element is to mo-
tivate the individual employee to
“work clean” as a habit. It is the



responsibility of each one of us to
maintain our work place clean and
nobody should have the illusion that
cleaning up is someone else’s res-
ponsibility.

To meet this goal, Nelo is develo-
ping a program to correct and impro-
ve facilities and conditions, deterio-
rated by the elements of Mother Na-
ture. The program will also improve
the general appearance of some re-
finery areas to meet the standards,
and thus provide the employees with
a clean environment. But, in addi-
tion, the employees will be provided
with the training, tools and facilities
to sustain good housekeeping in their
respective areas. Through contacts
and sessions with the employees and
supervisors, Nelo hopes to establish
an exchange of information: the
group’s input to Lago’s housekee-
ping efforts, and Management's con-
tinuing emphasis on sustained good
housekeeping practices.

It is obvious that this effort will re-
quire the support and participation
of every Lago employee. With your
cooperation, we will have at all times
a clean working environment at Lago,
because we deserve it. Off-and-on
clean-up campaigns will then belong
to the past.

Students in the 1980 Summer Training Program for College Stu-
dents are flanked here by Elias Fingal at left, and Stefford Cour-

June 16.

Record Number of Students
In Summer Training Program

On June 16, forty students, who are
on vacation from colleges abroad,
started at Lago under the Company’s
Summer Training Program for College
Students. They were welcomed at
the Administration Building by Elias
Fingal and Stefford Courtar of the
Employee Relations Department after
which followed an introduction about
the Lago organization and the stu-
dents’ responsibilities during their as-
signments. At the end of their orien-
tation program, which included a re-
finery tour, their supervisors or con-
tact person during the eight-week
training program, took them to their
respective work location.

Over sixty students — a record num-
ber — applied for participation in the
summer training program this year.
The forty students accepted in the
program — also a record — repre-
sent the majority of applicants, all of
them who were placed in the mean-
ingful jobs available in the company.
In their selecton, priority was given
to students whose educational back-
ground best matches the available
job opportunities.

In what may be deemed a learn-
and-earn program, the students are
given the opportunity to become ac-
quainted with a work environment
which may give them the experience
they need for their future careers.

The Summer Training Program will
close on August 8, 1980.

Except for the Lago-provided plat-
form, no other local equipment or fa-
cilities were used. Most of AA’s lift-
ing devices for the job were built in-
to the jet’s tail end. Working effi-
ciently and expertly, the AA techni-
cians got the DC-10 ready for the
mandatory initial tests which were
carried out from 6:30 to 8 Wednesday
night by experts flown in from the
John F. Kennedy International Air-
port. The tests showed that the in-

” Feaneon-er ro
i

stallation was 100 percent perfect and
— according to plan — the DC-10 re-
turned to the JFK International Air-
port in New York to resume normal
flights.

Lago’s immediate response in set-
ting the.stage for the airline experts
played a major role in beginning the
mechanical operations without delay,
enabling the airline authorities to
complete the entire engine change in
54 hours, 18 hours ahead of their
plan. At the same time, Lago’s coo-
peration helped the airline maintain
their flight plans, while affording the
island’s tourist industry to continue
its normal pace.

Lago Annuitants' Monthly Income Gets Boost
Under Company's Annuity Supplement Program
Together with their retirement
check of July 1, 1980, Lago's 1500
annuitants received a letter from La-
go's President G. E. Golden announ-
cing the approval of another Annuity
Supplement Program which will in-
crease their monthly income. In con-
nection with this post-retirement an-
nuity supplement Lago's tenth
since 1971 we asked President G.
E. Golden some questions:
Q. Mr. Golden, much Is written
and said these days about the ef-
fects of Inflation on the income of
annuitants. How does Lago view
this problem ?
A. This is a problem for anyone who
must live on a relatively fixed amount
of income. It is a problem faced in
just about every country and there
are no simple solutions.
Clearly, it is a problem requiring
the effort of the government, the em-
ployer and the person himself.
The government has not only to
confront the conditions that are work-
ing to stimulate the inflationary spiral
but also to establish a national pro-
gram of old age benefits that take in-
flation into account. In the Nether-
lands Antilles the Government's pro-
gram does respond to movement in
the cost of living index.
The individual should build into his
personal retirement planning the re-
cognition that inflation will probably
continue during his retirement years.
With this in mind, one should plan
ahead while one is still employed, to
increase financial security during the
retirement years.
As for Lago itself, we recognize
that pension income is reduced by
the inflation in the same manner as
wages. This is one of the reasons
we improved the pension plan last
year so that pensions now are based
on an employee's earnings' level
near the end of one's career rather
than on the average over a career.
This means that inflation at least to

no, donjo di trabao y e persona mes.
Gobierno no solamente mester con-
fronta cu e condicionnan cu ta tra-
hando pa stimula e curva inflaciona-
rio, pero tambe pa establece un pro-
grama national di beneficio pa behez
cual ta tuma inflation den considera-
cion. Den Antillas Neerlandes e pro-
grama di Gobierno ta ahusta na
cambionan den e indice di costo di
bida.
E ndividuo mester crea den su pla-
neamento personal pa retire e reco-
nocimiento cu inflation probablemen-
te lo continue durante su anjanan di
retire. Cu esaki en mente, el mester
plane for di antemano, mientras cu
ainda el ta emplea, pa aumenta se-
guridad financiero durante e anjanan
di retire.
Den caso di Lago mes, nos ta re-
conoce cu entrada di pension ta ser
reduce door di inflation na e mesun
manera cu salario. Esey ta un di e
motibonan pakiko nos a mehora e
plan di pension anja pasa pa asina
pensionnan ta basA awor ariba un
persona su nivel di ganashi cerca di
e fin di su carera en vez di ariba e
averahe di su carera. Esaki kier
meen cu inflation ta reflehA por lo
menos den cuminzamento di retire
den entrada di pension.
Despues di retire, Compania a asis-
ti pensionistanan pa medio di su Pro-
gramanan di Suplementacion di Pen-
sion.

the point of retirement is reflected in
pension income.
After retirement, the Company has
aided annuitants through its Annuity
Supplementation Programs.
Q. Can you tell us something
about these Annuity Supplementa-
tion Programs ?
A. Each year since 1971 Lago Man-
agement has reviewed the cost of li-
ving movement in the Netherlands
Antilles and when the cost of living
index moved significantly, we granted
Lago annuitants a supplement to
help replace some of the purchasing
power lost to inflation.
Q. Are these programs costly ?
A. Yes, they are. Naturally, it de-
pends on the rate of inflation that oc-
curs. Since 1974 Lago has granted
assistance to our annuitants of 8.5
million Florins.
The Program most recently approv-
ed for the year beginning July 1,
1980, will cost Lago about 1.8 million
Florins and will benefit about 1500
Lago annuitants.
Q. You say these are annual pro-
grams. Does this mean they can
be discontinued ?
A. We do review the facts each year
and there is no guarantee that the
"The pension supplement clearly demon-
strates Lago's concern for Its annuitants."
says President Jerry Golden.
"E suplemento di pension claramente ta
demonstra Lago su preocupacion pa su
pensionistanan." Presidents Jerry Golden
ta bisa.
Income Gets Boost
Program will be renewed from year
to year. It depends on the inflation
rate and the Company's financial con-
dition.
However, we have renewed the
Program in each of the past ten
years. I think this clearly demonstra-
tes Lago's interest in helping our an,
nuitants to enjoy their retirements
more fully.

Lago Helps American Airlines Meet Target
For Replacement of
As the gigantic American Airlines
DC-10 N124AA was getting ready to
leave Aruba on Sunday, May 25, Ame-
rican Airlines Mechanic Lothar van
Eer discovered a problem with the
aircraft's rear engine during a rou-
tine pre-departure maintenance in-
spection. American Airlines authori-
ties on the island cancelled the flight
to New York via Curaqao and arrang-
ed for the arrival of another DC-10
from Puerto Rico a few hours later.
In an unprecedented situation in
Aruba, in which Lago would play an
important role, AA's representatives
decided to replace the engine right
here at the Princess Beatrix Airport,
as soon as a replacement arrived
from their headquarters in Tulsa,
Oklahoma along with a team of AA
technicians. The entire operation of
removal, installation and testing of
the new equipment was set at 72
hours. AA's General Manager for the
Netherlands Antilles Mr. David W.
Cook and his assistant Mr. Ceferino
Mendez moved fast to make the ne-
cessary arrangements to meet the
deadline. Because of the location of
the engine high up at the rear end of
the plane, a special platform was re-
quired to enable the AA technicians
to work freely, comfortably and safe-
ly. The erection of the platform had
to begin right away, pending the ar-
rival of the team who were bringing
all necessary equipment and accesso-
DC-10 Engine in Aruba
ries for the mechanical operation the
same day.
After exhausting their resources,
AA authorities contacted Lago for as-
sistance on Monday morning. The
Mechanical Department was given
their request and Mr. Edgar Coffi of
Lago's Refinery Maintenance Zone
was dispatched immediately to size
up the needs. He set everything in
motion to provide the necessary scaf-
fold material and contracted manpo-
wer from Aruba Painting so that a
30-ft high platform could be erected
in the minimum time possible. The
platform would have to support simul-
taneously ten men engaged in the re-
moval/installation operation.
In nine hours from 2 p.m. to 11
p.m., fourteen men erected the high
structure around the rear end of the
DC-10. While preliminary work be-
gan by the airline team, Lago's con-
tracted men used about 100 "Gold
Medal" scaffold piping to erect the
structure and installed the required
planks for the platform, under guid-
ance of two Aruba Painting supervi-
sors. The overall operation was al-
ternately supervised and coordinated
by Edgar Coffi of the Refinery Main-
tenance Zone and Pedro Arends of
the Contract Execution Zone.
In the hours which followed, seven-
teen airline technicians in inter-
changing shifts worked at a fever-

Lago Engineers Present Plaque to HTS Dordrecht
For Contribution In Their Career Development
In a gesture-of appreciation towards
their alma mater, six Lago engineers
met with an HTS student on practical
training at Lago to enjoy dinner at
the Cattle Baron Restaurant on Fri-
day, June 13. The pleasant reunion
was to honor the HTS Dordrecht in
Holland, which has molded their ca-
reers and which, they feel, has indi-
rectly contributed to the welfare and
progress of our island.
During the very animated reunion,
wherein the group reminisced over
the wonderful and sometimes hectic
college year, the engineers honored
their college by presenting a plaque
to Jacinto Ras, the final-year HTS
Dordrecht student who will be return-
ing to Holland next month. He in
turn, will make the official presenta-
tion on behalf of Lago's engineers
and will convey their message of lo-
yalty and appreciation to the HTS fa-
culty of Dordrecht.
The idea to honor the Dordrecht
institution occurred somo time ago,
when a group of engineers were dis-
cussing their college years, and dis-
covered that several among them had
studied at Dordrecht. After checking
around, they found out that there are
presently six Dordrecht HTS gradua-
tes employed at Lago. Because all
of them had much praise for the
school's system and faculty, they de-
cided to have a plaque made with an
appropriate inscription as lasting proof
of their gratitude and admiration for
the college.
The plaque, in a scroll design and
with the inscription "To HTS Dor-
drecht in appreciation of efforts ex-
pended in shaping our careers" and
listing the names of the ex-students,
was presented to Jacinto Ras by Hen-
drik Fujooah in the presence of the
engineers and their guests. Of the
group, Hendrik is the Dordrecht gra-
duate with the most Lago service -
ten years. He is a Chemist in Techni-
cal Analytical & Conservation La-
boratories at present. The most re-
cent Dordrecht graduate at Lago is
Alvin Koolman, who studied Chemi-
cal Technology, and who has been
with Technical Process Technical
Services since February this year af-
ter completing his practical period at
Lago.

In Summer Training Program
On June 16, forty students, who are
on vacation from colleges abroad,
started at Lago under the Company's
Summer Training Program for College
Students. They were welcomed at
the Administration Building by Elias
Fingal and Stefford Courtar of the
Employee Relations Department after
which followed an introduction about
the Lago organization and the stu-
dents' responsibilities during their as-
signments. At the end of their orien-
tation program, which included a re-
finery tour, their supervisors or con-
tact person during the eight-week
training program, took them to their
respective work location.
Over sixty students a record num-
ber applied for participation in the
summer training program this year.
The forty students accepted in the
program also a record repre-
sent the majority of applicants, all of
them who were placed in the mean-
ingful jobs available in the company.
In their selection, priority was given
to students whose educational back-
ground best matches the available
job opportunities.
In what may be deemed a learn-
and-earn program, the students are
given the opportunity to become ac-
quainted with a work environment
which may give them the experience
they need for their future careers.
The Summer Training Program will
close on August 8, 1980.

Except for the Lago-provided plat-

ing devices for the job were built in-
to the jet's tail end. Working effi-
ciently and expertly, the AA techni-
cians got the DC-10 ready for the
mandatory initial tests which were
carried out from 6:30 to 8 Wednesday
night by experts flown in from the
John F. Kennedy International Air-
port. The tests showed that the in-
erican Airlines
stallation was 100 percent perfect and
- according to plan the DC-10 re-
turned to the JFK International Air-
port in New York to resume normal
flights.
Lago's immediate response in set-
ting the stage for the airline experts
played a major role in beginning the
mechanical operations without delay,
enabling the airline authorities to
complete the entire engine change in
54 hours, 18 hours ahead of their
plan. At the same time, Lago's coo-
peration helped the airline maintain
their flight plans, while affording the
island's tourist industry to continue
its normal pace.
