“Essolite Receives Name”
FromPowerhouseEmployee

He will be known from now on as
"Essolito”. That was the name finally
chosen by the judges last week after
they carefully judged over 800 names
submitted by 275 employees for the oil-
drop character introduced in the De-
cember 9 issue of the Aruba Esso News.
The winner of the Fls. 50 prize for the
The winner of the Fis. 50 prize for
a clerk at No. 2
Powerhouse.

His suggestion,
"Essolito”’, had
everything the
judges were look-
ing for: short,
catchy, easy to
say and remem-
ber, and with a
South American
twist that makes
it very appro-
priate.

A consolation prize of Fls. 10 goes
to Benjamin Lampe, a first-year ap-
prentice in the Training Divison, who
suggested "Esso Lito” (as two words).

Employees will be seeing more of
Essolito in the near future.

Judges in the contest were J. F. Mal-
colm, J. J. P. Oduber, W. Porter, F. B.
Roebuck, and B. Teagle.

Of the over 800 names that did not
win, probably the shortest suggested
was "Esso It’, and the longest was
*Lago Esso Telephone Exchange”.

Some other suggested names: Esso
Zip, Esso Nydia, Esso Safety Sam
Operation, Esso Earl, John D. Esso,
Esso Spinal Cord, Esso Dushhie, Esso
Speedoleum, and Esso Dumpling.

Lago Employee Council Is Formed

With Election of Eight Members

Lago employees cast ballots December 27—29 in the first election of the
Lago Employee Council, naming eight men to represent them through the
negotiating body formed under the new representation plan. In line with the
principle of giving better representation than under the former system, four
national and four non-national candidates were elected.

Those chosen on the national ticket were Frederick Dirksz, Juan Maduro,
Higinio Kelly, and Severiano Luydens. The first two were named for two-year
terms, the second two for one-year terms.

The successful candidates on the non-national ticket included Bipat Chand
and Cecil Bishop for two-year terms, and Herbert Blaize and Norbert Baptiste
for one-year terms.

(See page 8 for pictures.)

At the same time the vote constituted employees’ approval of the propositions
stated on the ballot, that the Lago Employee Council is authorized to develop
and execute with Management a constitution and by-laws for the Council, and
a working agreement covering conditions of employment.

The Council is expected to assume its responsibilities without delay, with
its first meeting scheduled for immediately after the first of the new year.

The valid ballots cast in the 21 election districts totalled 5127, or 77.9 per
cent of the number of eligible voters. (Figures take into account several hundred
eligible voters who were unable to vote because of vacations, sickness, or
other reasons.)

The election was conducted by two eight-man Boards of Election, which were
appointed by the two nominating committee chairmen. The Board for the
national group included Just De Vries (chairman), Simon Geerman, Rudy Yzer,
Alvin Holter, Gust De Jongh, Jose Dirksz, Winric Duncan, and Juan Tromp.
For the non-nationals the Board was Syd Brathwaite (chairman), Horace Grant,
Reuben Medford, Ewen Quashie, Gideon Rathnum, Luther Robertson, Vandyke
Jacobs, and Reily Jack.

The ballot boxes were carried to every part of the plant by 84 tellers visiting
employees on the job, with two tellers in each district for each nationality
group. The tellers are listed below:

To many families, the idea of reducing their consumption
of water seems rather remote. They may look on their own
efforts as only a single drop in the bucket.

"After all,” so often is the reasoning, the amount of
water that we might save in one day isn’t going to amount
to much — it isn’t going to make any difference.”

But it is going to make a difference. All those little drops
from all the homes will, before long, fill up the bucket.
Then a substantial saving has been made.

Because of the current water shortage on the eastern
seaboard, where our fresh water comes from, we must all
cooperate in efforts to reduce consumption. To reduce it by
more than one-third requires the total efforts of everybody,
not just a few. Everyone must realize the importance of
their own particular saving, however small it may seem to
them. Then the little bit saved here and the little bit saved
there will begin to mount up to an impressive saving.

The fresh water we use comes from people who them-
selves are badly in need of more water. If they can cut
down their uses, then we can do no less than share their
sacrifices and cooperate in the reduction program.

There are many obvious ways in which a reduction can
be accomplished. Use brackish water whenever possible.
Repair leaky faucets promptly. Don’t let taps run any
longer than necessary. Don’t look on water as something
that runs freely from your faucet in unlimited quantities.
Think of it as a valuable commodity, not to be wasted.

With each of us cooperating, our water consumption can
be reduced with no suffering or hardship on anybody’s part.
To cut consumption by a third, though, requires the efforts
of everybody, not just a few. Are you doing your part?

Acting Lieutenant Governor H. A. Hessling
emphasizes cooperative spirit between the
Government of Aruba and Lago in his talk.

ARUBA ESSO NEWS

Huge Crowd Turns Out For
Government Xmas! Party

Lago’s annual Christmas party for
Aruba’s Government employees was
proclaimed the biggest and best yet. It
was held on December 21 at the Aruba
Golf Club.

The program for the evening was
me’d by H. Gordon. He introduced Lago
President J. J. Horigan, who welcomed
the guests on behalf of the Company.
Remarking that these annual parties
were a wonderful means for members
of the Government and of Lago to get
to know one another better, Mr. Horigan
said he hoped that the good fellowship
generated there would carry on into
everyday relationships during the new
year.

Following his welcome address, Mr.
Horigan introduced Acting Lieutenant
Governor H. A. Hessling. Thanking the
Company for giving the party for em-
ployees of the Government of Aruba,
Mr. Hessling emphasized the friendly
and cooperative relations that exist, and
have existed, between the Government
and Lago. On Lago’s part he pointed
out, additional proof of this cordial

Hit of the evening’s entertainment was this skit written by Herre Oppenhuizen,

center. H. Gordon, left, and J. Wervers, right, were the other actors in ”Wrong

Connections, or A Telephone Dilemma”. The play was given in Dutch, Papiamento,

and English... all at the same time. Other events included group singing of
Christmas carols.

barbershop quartet which sang familiar songs. Recognized in

Department, is in center.

relationship was the Company's recent
announcement that it was making a gift
of over 400 books to the new public
library in Oranjestad.

Following Mr. Hessling’s talk, J. Wer-
vers led the assembled group in the
singing of the Netherlands national
anthem, and Rev. D. R. Evans led them
in the national anthems of Great
Britain and the United States.

Rev. Evans then led a barbershop
quartet, without a barbershop, in sing-
ing several of the traditional Christmas
carols and other familiar songs. Other
members of the group were J. C.
McQuair, W. O. Weber, and L. §S.
McReynolds. H. Carter Miller accom-
panied them at the piano.

"Wrong Connections, or A Telephone
Dilemma,” proved to be the hilarious hit
of the evening’s entertainment. It was
written by Herre Oppenhuizen. Appear-
ing in it were Messrs. Gordon and Wer-
vers, and someone wearing a red wig
who looked very much like Harpo Marx
but turned out to be the author. The
skit garnered laughter from beginning
to end. It was written and acted in
Dutch, Papiamento, English, and Sans-
krit, all at the same time.

The formal part of the program end-
ed with accordion selections by Cor-
nelis Tak, of the Aruba Trading Com-
pany, and two songs in Spanish by
Mr. Gordon, who was accompanied by
Mr. Tak and a large part of the
audience.

Refreshments included drinks and
sandwiches, served under the auspices
of the Esso Dining Hall, and cigars and
cigarettes were passed around freely.

Novelty hats and noise-makers were
distributed, and each guest went home
with a copy of the Company’s new 1950
calendar.

Another souvenir of the evening was
the program, entitled Tijd”, done in
the manner of a miniature Time Maga-
zine and containing appropriate pictures
from previous Christmas parties.

In charge of arrangements for the
party was a committee headed by P. A.
Hunt, and including E. G. Armstrong,
W. J. Booi. G. B. Brook, H. Gordon,
G. Hemstreet, R W. Schlageter, W. V.
Stephens, and J. Wervers.

Others playing a major part in the
party’s success included personnel from
Colony Service and Public Relations.

An interesting part of the orientation program for Lago school teachers is this tour

of the refinery and harbor area. The girls traveled by bus and then were taken

through the harbor in a launch. The program was designed to give a general orien-

five four-hour periods, one period each Saturday morning.

NEW FINGER PIER
STARTS OPERATION

Fls. 6,000,000 UNIT WILL SERVICE
EXPANDING OCEAN TANKER NEEDS

With the opening of its new finger pier on December 10,
Lago gears itself to handle efficiently ocean tankers carry-
ing crude oil from Amuay Bay.

The first ship to use the new pier was the ”"ESSO
WORCESTER”, a T-2 type tanker of the Esso Shipping
Company fleet with a load of crude from Amuay. Pilot
A. van Hofwegen of the Government Pilot service had the
honor of putting the first vessel alongside the new pier as
he brought the *"ESSO WORCESTER” into the south berth
just before noon on December 10th, less than three hours
after the pier had been turned over to Lago by the
contractors.

(This ship was named after the home town of the late
Robert L. Hague, who headed Jersey’s marine operations
for many years.)

The construction of the pier was done by the Netherlands
Harbor Works Co. It is designed to service two 26,000 ton
supertankers at the same time, and is closely allied with the
completion of the Ule-Amuay pipeline. Formerly, all crude
was brought from Lake Maracaibo by shallow-draft lake
tankers. Now transport of oil from Amuay to Aruba by
T-2's and supertankers, in addition to the Lake Fleet, is
practical and economical.

This pier is the first of two new ones to be built in San
Nicolas harbor to ensure Lago’s efficiency in supplying
world oil needs.

H. Wever, sub-foreman Docks, turns the valve on this big

24-inch line to receive crude from the Esso Worcester. The

honor of turning the first valve on the new pier went to Mr.

Wever, who has more than twenty years service on the docks,

and is one of the original employees of Lago. In background is
Nicholas Croes, dock corporal.

Three Marine Department officials meet the Worcester’s captain
as the ship docks at the new finger pier. Posed on the catwalk
of the 17.000 ton T-2 tanker are Captain W. L. Thomas, Captain
H. R. Zeuner of the Esso Worcester, Captain W. Mello, and
J. P. Wiley. Note pier’s hose-handling structure, background.

W. S. Harney Assigned Here in
Executive Development Program

W. Selby Harney. Jr., second of three
executives to arrive in Aruba in connec-
tion with Jersey Standard’s Executive
Development Program, has been assign-
ed to work with D. P. Barnes, T.S.D.
Laboratories head.

Mr. Harney has been acting chief
chemis# et Bayway Refinery and will

stay in Aruba
for about two
years. In 1936

he joined the
research division
of the Standard
Oil Development
Company to
work in aviation
gasoline develop-
ment. This was
followed in 1940
by a transfer to
assistant head of
the solvents lab
at Bayway. In
1942. Mr. Harney was placed in charge
of group development work on synthetic
alcohols, esters, ketones, etc. Then, in
the fall of 1945, he became assistant
chief chemist at Bayway and has been
acting chief chemist for about a year.
The Executive Development Program
will enlarge the experience of Lago’s
higher ranking supervisors by allowing
them to be released for rotational
assignments. The three men from do-
mestic affiliates who are being loaned
to Lago will supply the Company with
the extra personnel to get the program
going here. Net results will be a supply
of potential executives with a broad
background of experience and a pro-
gram which will meet Lago’s needs.



W. S. Harney, Jr.

Refinery Trucks have 2-Way Radio

Radio-telephone communication be-
tween units of Bayway Refinery’s
transportation department and a central
dispatching office began operating No-
vember 25. Taking to the air-waves on
a 60-watt frequency-modulated system,
35 vehicles now have constant two-way
communication with the dispatcher.

If a driver is away from his vehicle
when a call comes in on his set, the
horn on his car sounds for five seconds.

Equipped with phones are twenty-
three trucks, four Ross carriers, four
cars, two fire engines, a jeep, and the
plant ambulance. More trucks are to
get sets later. The system is designed
to make more efficient use of the trans-
portation equipment.

He will be known from now on as
"Essolito”. That was the name finally
chosen by the judges last week after
they carefully judged over 800 names
submitted by 275 employees for the oil-
drop character introduced in the De-
cember 9 issue of the Aruba Esso News.

His suggestion,
"Essolito”’, had
everything the
judges were look-
ing for: short,
catchy, easy to
say and remem-
ber, and with a
South American
twist that makes
it very appro-
priate.

A consolation prize of Fls. 10 goes
to Benjamin Lampe, a first-year ap-
prentice in the Training Divison, who
suggested "Esso Lito” (as two words).

Employees will be seeing more of
Essolito in the near future.

Judges in the contest were J. F. Mal-
colm, J. J. P. Oduber, W. Porter, F. B.
Roebuck, and B. Teagle.

Of the over 800 names that did not
win, probably the shortest suggested
was "Esso It’, and the longest was
*Lago Esso Telephone Exchange”.

Some other suggested names: Esso

Esso Spinal Cord, Esso Dushhie, Esso

Lago Employee Council Is Formed

With Election of Eight Members

Lago employees cast ballots December 27—29 in the first election of the
Lago Employee Council, naming eight men to represent them through the
negotiating body formed under the new representation plan. In line with the
principle of giving better representation than under the former system, four
national and four non-national candidates were elected.

Those chosen on the national ticket were Frederick Dirksz, Juan Maduro,
Higinio Kelly, and Severiano Luydens. The first two were named for two-year
terms, the second two for one-year terms.

The successful candidates on the non-national ticket included Bipat Chand
and Cecil Bishop for two-year terms, and Herbert Blaize and Norbert Baptiste
for one-year terms.

(See page 8 for pictures.)

At the same time the vote constituted employees’ approval of the propositions
stated on the ballot, that the Lago Employee Council is authorized to develop
and execute with Management a constitution and by-laws for the Council, and
a working agreement covering conditions of employment.

The Council is expected to assume its responsibilities without delay, with
its first meeting scheduled for immediately after the first of the new year.

The valid ballots cast in the 21 election districts totalled 5127, or 77.9 per
cent of the number of eligible voters. (Figures take into account several hundred
eligible voters who were unable to vote because of vacations, sickness, or
other reasons.)

The election was conducted by two eight-man Boards of Election, which were
appointed by the two nominating committee chairmen. The Board for the
national group included Just De Vries (chairman), Simon Geerman, Rudy Yzer,
Alvin Holter, Gust De Jongh, Jose Dirksz, Winric Duncan, and Juan Tromp.
For the non-nationals the Board was Syd Brathwaite (chairman), Horace Grant,
Reuben Medford, Ewen Quashie, Gideon Rathnum, Luther Robertson, Vandyke
Jacobs, and Reily Jack.

The ballot boxes were carried to every part of the plant by 84 tellers visiting
employees on the job, with two tellers in each district for each nationality
group. The tellers are listed below:

To many families, the idea of reducing their consumption
of water seems rather remote. They may look on their own
efforts as only a single drop in the bucket.

"After all,” so often is the reasoning, the amount of
water that we might save in one day isn’t going to amount
to much — it isn’t going to make any difference.”

But it is going to make a difference. All those little drops
from all the homes will, before long, fill up the bucket.
Then a substantial saving has been made.

Because of the current water shortage on the eastern
seaboard, where our fresh water comes from, we must all
cooperate in efforts to reduce consumption. To reduce it by
more than one-third requires the total efforts of everybody,
not just a few. Everyone must realize the importance of
their own particular saving, however small it may seem to
them. Then the little bit saved here and the little bit saved
there will begin to mount up to an impressive saving.

The fresh water we use comes from people who them-
selves are badly in need of more water. If they can cut
down their uses, then we can do no less than share their
sacrifices and cooperate in the reduction program.

There are many obvious ways in which a reduction can
be accomplished. Use brackish water whenever possible.
Repair leaky faucets promptly. Don’t let taps run any
longer than necessary. Don’t look on water as something
that runs freely from your faucet in unlimited quantities.
Think of it as a valuable commodity, not to be wasted.

With each of us cooperating, our water consumption can
be reduced with no suffering or hardship on anybody’s part.
To cut consumption by a third, though, requires the efforts
of everybody, not just a few. Are you doing your part?

Acting Lieutenant Governor H. A. Hessling
emphasizes cooperative spirit between the
Government of Aruba and Lago in his talk.

ARUBA ESSO NEWS

Huge Crowd Turns Out For
Government Xmas! Party

Lago’s annual Christmas party for
Aruba’s Government employees was
proclaimed the biggest and best yet. It
was held on December 21 at the Aruba
Golf Club.

The program for the evening was
me’d by H. Gordon. He introduced Lago
President J. J. Horigan, who welcomed
the guests on behalf of the Company.
Remarking that these annual parties
were a wonderful means for members
of the Government and of Lago to get
to know one another better, Mr. Horigan
said he hoped that the good fellowship
generated there would carry on into
everyday relationships during the new
year.

Following his welcome address, Mr.
Horigan introduced Acting Lieutenant
Governor H. A. Hessling. Thanking the
Company for giving the party for em-
ployees of the Government of Aruba,
Mr. Hessling emphasized the friendly
and cooperative relations that exist, and
have existed, between the Government
and Lago. On Lago’s part he pointed
out, additional proof of this cordial

Hit of the evening’s entertainment was this skit written by Herre Oppenhuizen,

center. H. Gordon, left, and J. Wervers, right, were the other actors in ”Wrong

Connections, or A Telephone Dilemma”. The play was given in Dutch, Papiamento,

and English... all at the same time. Other events included group singing of
Christmas carols.

barbershop quartet which sang familiar songs. Recognized in

relationship was the Company's recent
announcement that it was making a gift
of over 400 books to the new public
library in Oranjestad.

Following Mr. Hessling’s talk, J. Wer-
vers led the assembled group in the
singing of the Netherlands national
anthem, and Rev. D. R. Evans led them
in the national anthems of Great
Britain and the United States.

Rev. Evans then led a barbershop
quartet, without a barbershop, in sing-
ing several of the traditional Christmas
carols and other familiar songs. Other
members of the group were J. C.
McQuair, W. O. Weber, and L. §S.
McReynolds. H. Carter Miller accom-
panied them at the piano.

"Wrong Connections, or A Telephone
Dilemma,” proved to be the hilarious hit
of the evening’s entertainment. It was
written by Herre Oppenhuizen. Appear-
ing in it were Messrs. Gordon and Wer-
vers, and someone wearing a red wig
who looked very much like Harpo Marx
but turned out to be the author. The
skit garnered laughter from beginning
to end. It was written and acted in
Dutch, Papiamento, English, and Sans-
krit, all at the same time.

The formal part of the program end-
ed with accordion selections by Cor-
nelis Tak, of the Aruba Trading Com-
pany, and two songs in Spanish by
Mr. Gordon, who was accompanied by
Mr. Tak and a large part of the
audience.

Refreshments included drinks and
sandwiches, served under the auspices
of the Esso Dining Hall, and cigars and
cigarettes were passed around freely.

Novelty hats and noise-makers were
distributed, and each guest went home
with a copy of the Company’s new 1950
calendar.

Another souvenir of the evening was
the program, entitled Tijd”, done in
the manner of a miniature Time Maga-
zine and containing appropriate pictures
from previous Christmas parties.

In charge of arrangements for the
party was a committee headed by P. A.
Hunt, and including E. G. Armstrong,
W. J. Booi. G. B. Brook, H. Gordon,
G. Hemstreet, R W. Schlageter, W. V.
Stephens, and J. Wervers.

Others playing a major part in the
party’s success included personnel from
Colony Service and Public Relations.

NEW FINGER PIER
STARTS OPERATION

Fls. 6,000,000 UNIT WILL SERVICE
EXPANDING OCEAN TANKER NEEDS

With the opening of its new finger pier on December 10,
Lago gears itself to handle efficiently ocean tankers carry-
ing crude oil from Amuay Bay.

The first ship to use the new pier was the ”"ESSO
WORCESTER”, a T-2 type tanker of the Esso Shipping
Company fleet with a load of crude from Amuay. Pilot
A. van Hofwegen of the Government Pilot service had the
honor of putting the first vessel alongside the new pier as
he brought the *"ESSO WORCESTER” into the south berth
just before noon on December 10th, less than three hours
after the pier had been turned over to Lago by the
contractors.

(This ship was named after the home town of the late
Robert L. Hague, who headed Jersey’s marine operations
for many years.)

The construction of the pier was done by the Netherlands
Harbor Works Co. It is designed to service two 26,000 ton
supertankers at the same time, and is closely allied with the
completion of the Ule-Amuay pipeline. Formerly, all crude
was brought from Lake Maracaibo by shallow-draft lake
tankers. Now transport of oil from Amuay to Aruba by
T-2's and supertankers, in addition to the Lake Fleet, is
practical and economical.

This pier is the first of two new ones to be built in San
Nicolas harbor to ensure Lago’s efficiency in supplying
world oil needs.

H. Wever, sub-foreman Docks, turns the valve on this big

24-inch line to receive crude from the Esso Worcester. The

honor of turning the first valve on the new pier went to Mr.

Wever, who has more than twenty years service on the docks,

and is one of the original employees of Lago. In background is
Nicholas Croes, dock corporal.

Three Marine Department officials meet the Worcester’s captain
as the ship docks at the new finger pier. Posed on the catwalk
of the 17.000 ton T-2 tanker are Captain W. L. Thomas, Captain
H. R. Zeuner of the Esso Worcester, Captain W. Mello, and
J. P. Wiley. Note pier’s hose-handling structure, background.

W. S. Harney Assigned Here in
Executive Development Program

W. Selby Harney. Jr., second of three
executives to arrive in Aruba in connec-
tion with Jersey Standard’s Executive
Development Program, has been assign-
ed to work with D. P. Barnes, T.S.D.
Laboratories head.

Mr. Harney has been acting chief
chemis# et Bayway Refinery and will

stay in Aruba
for about two
years. In 1936

he joined the
research division
of the Standard
Oil Development
Company to
work in aviation
gasoline develop-
ment. This was
followed in 1940
by a transfer to
assistant head of
the solvents lab
at Bayway. In
1942. Mr. Harney was placed in charge
of group development work on synthetic
alcohols, esters, ketones, etc. Then, in
the fall of 1945, he became assistant
chief chemist at Bayway and has been
acting chief chemist for about a year.
The Executive Development Program
will enlarge the experience of Lago’s
higher ranking supervisors by allowing
them to be released for rotational
assignments. The three men from do-
mestic affiliates who are being loaned
to Lago will supply the Company with
the extra personnel to get the program
going here. Net results will be a supply
of potential executives with a broad
background of experience and a pro-
gram which will meet Lago’s needs.



W. S. Harney, Jr.

Refinery Trucks have 2-Way Radio

Radio-telephone communication be-
tween units of Bayway Refinery’s
transportation department and a central
dispatching office began operating No-
vember 25. Taking to the air-waves on
a 60-watt frequency-modulated system,
35 vehicles now have constant two-way
communication with the dispatcher.

If a driver is away from his vehicle
when a call comes in on his set, the
horn on his car sounds for five seconds.

Equipped with phones are twenty-
three trucks, four Ross carriers, four
cars, two fire engines, a jeep, and the
plant ambulance. More trucks are to
get sets later. The system is designed
to make more efficient use of the trans-
portation equipment.

Here and There

The St. Martin Public Library at
Phillipsburg, recently established, has
been put on the mailing list to receive
the Esso News. This will give relatives
and friends of Lagoites from St. Martin
the opportunity of keeping up regularly
with happenings at Lago and Aruba.

J. M. B. Howard, who was here from
1943 to 1946, first as asst. marine man-
ager and later as marine manager, be-
came manager of the Marine Depart-
ment of Standard-Vacuum Oil Company
January 1. He succeeds W. F. Dunning,
and will have offices at 26 Broadway,
New York.

The s.s. Ambrosio’s crew takes pride
in the fact that theirs was the first lake
tanker to berth at the new finger pier.
The Ambrosio was also the first laker
to load at the new pier.

Members of the ship operations divi-
sion of the Marine Dept. started the
two-day Christmas holiday in fine
festive style at noon December 24 with
a Christmas dinner at the Premier
Restaurant in San Nicolas. The group
that dined, following appropriate toasts,
included A. McKenzie, D. Herbert, E.
Leonor, A. Loefstop, M. Brennan,
W. V. Stephens, J. Ragan, A. J. Herrera,
M. Vries, B. Marquis, J. Schwengle,
M. Kock, L. Dirksz, and R. N. Wilkie.
A special guest was E. Delanoy of the
San Nicolas customs service.

Friends of Adolfo Meyer at the
Machine Shop wished him well and said
goodbye on his last day with Lago
December 17, before he returned to
Curacao to help his mother with her
business. He had been an employee
since October 17, 1945.
