Hussev Named Head of
Conservation Group

The name of the ”Refinery Loss
Committee” was this month changed
to »’Oil Conservation Committee”.
Reason for the change in name is
that the new one more accurately
describes the functions of the group.

At the same time the membership
of the committee has been enlarged.
Process Superintendent D. L. Hussey
has been named chairman of the Oil
Conservation Committee. Mr. Hussey,
same to Aruba from
Refinery in New
of

y committee and has had
able experience in oil conser-
vation work.

Other members of the committee
are H. V. Locker, C. J. Griffin, G. L.
MacNutt, W. L. Stiehl, T. M. Binnion,
J. M. Rosborough, H. W. Orr, and
F. B. Roebuck (secretary and field
coordinator).

A key means of keeping down
overall refinery costs, the Oil Con-
servation Committee seeks to eli-
minate various means in the refinery
through which oil is lost in everyday
operations. Sources of oil losses are
tracked down, then steps are taken
to eliminate them.







Notices of Job Vacancies
To Be Posted in Oranjestad

Aruba’s Acting Lt. Governor has
announced that employers who wish
to hire anyone can now post a notice,
with a description of the job avail-
able, on a bulletin board in Oranje-
stad. The board, installed by the
Department of Social & Economie
Affairs, is located in the S.E.L. Ma-
duro ons Building,

Persons seeking work can keep in
formed of various job openings by
watching this board. Before apply-
ing for any job listed, however, they
should report to the Department of
Social & Economie Affairs. There
they will be given a form with which
they can approach the prospective
employers.

At the same time it was an-
nounced that persons who wish to
hire employees - including domestic
personnel - from foreign countries
should submit applications to the De-
partment of Social & Economic Af-
fairs. As in the past, applications for
admittance of family members and
relatives to Aruba should be submit-
ted to the Immigration Service.

Luncheon at the Esso Club highlighted the visit here this month of the
Holland-Netherlands West Indies Coordination Council.

Lunch na Esso Club tabata riba programa di Colegio di Coordinacion Ho-
landa-Antillanan Holandes cu a bishita Lago e luna aki.

Holland V.W.1 Economic Group
Visits Aruba & Tours Lago

Lago was host March 2 to over 20
members of the Holland-Netherlands
West Indies Coordination Council.
Included in the group were members
of both the Netherlands and _ the
N.W.I. delegations to the Council.
They were accompanied on their trip
to the refinery by Aruba’s Acting Lt.
Governor.H. A. Hessling. .

(Delegates are presently meeting
in Curacao to further financial and
economic collaboration between Hol-
land and the Dutch West Indies.)

Highlights of the Council’s visit to
Lago were a brief tour through the
refinery, luncheon at the Esso Club,
and a close view of the Company’s
apprentice training program. They
also heard talks by Lago executives
outlining the Company’s present
economic outlook and its employee
relations activities and policies.

Following their arrival at Lago’s
main gate, the delegates were con-
ducted on a brief tour through the
refinery. They visited the harbor
area, the Acid Plant area, and saw





the construction on the new Plant
Commissary building before going
up the main refinery road and

stopping at the Cat Cracker. There
they were shown the Control Room
and taken up the Cat Cracker for a
view of the refinery and Lago Co-
lony area.

Moving on to the conference room
at the General Office Building, the
delegates were welcomed by Lago
President J. J. Horigan. He _ intro-
duced General Manager O. Mingus,
who outlined Lago’s present business

outlook and its prospects for the
future.
After giving a short history of

Lago in Aruba, Mr. Mingus pointed
out the various factors which have
influenced, or are now influencing,
the Company’s production. Among
those were an oversupply of petro-
leum products during 1949, incre 1
oil production in the Middle ast
and Canada, expansion of refining
facilities in Europe, the currency
situation, and import restrictions on
oil products.

Since Lago must process crude oil
cheaper than it can be processed
elsewhere, Mr. Mingus pointed out
that the Company’s present efforts
to reduce costs are a vital part of its
program to operate at the highest
efficiency with the lowest possible
costs.

Following Mr. Mingus’ talk, In-
dustrial and Public Relations Mana-
ger C. F. Smith spoke on employee
relations and Company benefit poli-
cies. In this connection he reviewed
the Company’s employee representat-
ion plan, bringing it up to the recent
date where negotiable and non-ne-
gotiable items are handled by sepa-
rate bodies.

Mr. Smith outlined the history and
success of the apprentice training





program, and pointed out the nume-
rous social benefits which the Com-
pany provides for its employees. He
noted that Lago’s Medical Depart-
ment extended free medical services
to 22,000 persons in Aruba, and that
Lago’s Hospital delivered 800 babies
a year (about half of those born in
Aruba each year).

“After citifig the: emphasis which
Lago places on the safety of its
employees, and the high position the
Company maintains among refineries
with excellent safety records, Mr.
Smith briefly mentioned the main
features of the Company’s various
benefit plans. Among these were
plans to help provide for employees
in case of sickness, accident, retire-
ment, and death, as well as_ the
Thrift Plan and the Vacation Sav-
ings Plan.

Mr. Smith closed his survey with
a brief mention of the Home Building
Foundation. This Company-sponsored
Foundation has built 218 homes for
sale to employees.

From the General Office Building,
the members of the Council went to
the Esso Club for lunch. After lunch
they were taken on a tour of the

BG Still Needs Clothing

Although Aruba’s official drive to
send aid to the flood-stricken people
of British Guiana ends on March 18,
individuals and organizations are
urged to continue sending clothing
to the people there. Recent radio
reports describing the plight of the
people in BG say that there is still
a great need for additional cloth-
ing.

Here’s the procedure to follow for
those who desire to send clothing to
British Guiana: prepare ten-kilo
cartons and address them in care of
Mrs. T. S. Coon, British Red Cross
Society, Eve Leary, Georgetown, BG.
Take or send packages to the post
office in San Nicola or Oranjestad,
where you will be assisted in filling
out the necessary forms. Mailing
charges are only Fls. 1,65 per ten-
kilo carton,

Persons who lack the time to get
to the post office themselves can
leave packages with the Aruba
Express Agency (next to the Rain-
bo Bakery). The Agency will pro-
cess the package at the same
Fls. 1.65 charge plus a small fee for
handling and mailing. |

Aruba has already shown its gene-
rosity to the people of British Guiana
by dispatching 22 cases of clothing |
earlier this month. However, there is |
still a need for more clothing and all |
who can are urged to send any spare |
clothes they have to the people of |
British Guiana. |

Water Tower Goes Down



A spectacular sight for sidewalk engineers was the moving of the water

tower near the Colony Commissary.

Three cranes and a tractor did the

job. The whole tower was lifted into the air by the cranes and then lowered
slowly while the tractor pulled it to a horizontal position. The tower will
be moved to the Plant Commissary area.

PUBLISHED EVERY SECOND FRIDAY AT ARUBA, NETHERLANDS

WEST INDIES, BY THE LAGO OIL & TRANSPORT CO.,

Printed by the

The way of progress

Curacaosche

LTD.

Courant, Curacao, N.W.I.

The vast amounts of money industry must spend in finding
out new and better ways of doing things was the subject of a
recent speech by E. V. Murphree of the Standard Oil Develop-

ment Company. The occasion

was a dinner at which 1,000

prominent chemists and business leaders honored him as he
was presented with a medal for his accomplishments in the

chemical profession.

Mr. Murphree pointed out that many research projects
must fail for one reason or another. "The successful projects
must pay for those that are not successful’ he added.

He illustrated his point with three major projects initiated

by our company. The cost up

to now of developing Butyl, a

safer rubber for inner tubes, is eleven million dollars. The fluid
catalytic cracking process (Lago’s "Cat Plant” is an example)
cost nine million dollars in research by the time the first still
was completed. It cost two million dollars to develop the
synthetic toluene (used in TNT) that was one of our company’s
contributions to the war victory.

These are not exceptions;

they are typical of the heavy

expenditures an industry must make to remain strong and
progressive, to provide jobs, to help increase the standard of

living.

Mr. Murphree pointed out that important developments
have come from the research work of small firms or individuals,
but the bulk of industrial development results from the work of
large organizations. Such development, he said, is the lifeblood

of western civilization.

Prince Bernhard in Mexico

A recent story in The New York

Bernhard in Mexico City on an of

What you don’t know
can hurt you

The siesta is all very well. But a
snooze—o~, at any rate, a_ half
hour’s complete rest—before meals
is even better than the more com-
mon after-lunch or after-dinner nap,
it seems. And this is said to be part-
icularly true in the case of people
who work under a strain or those
are convelescing. The reason, obv-
iously, that a relaxed, well-rested

Your good watch deserves good
care. One of the most important
contributions you can make to its
health and long life is to wind it
regularly every morning rather than
when you go to bed, as is the usual
practice. This gives the watch its
greatest "1eserve” strength when it
requires it most—during the active
day and not at night while its owner
sleeps. Watches should always be
wound carefully and gently. A subs-
tantial portion of all repairs involves
injuries to the winding mechan
Wrist watches can be more safely
wound off the wrist than they can
while being worn.

Boiled exgs should never be boiled,
properly speaking. The reason, it
seems, is that high heat and vigor-
ous boiling tend to rob this protein
food of seme of its flavor and nu-
tritive value. The best procedure,
therefore, is to start your eggs in
cold water, let the water approach
the boiling point, then turn off the
heat, and allow the eggs to stand—cyr
"coddle’—in the hot water for five
to twenty minutes, depending on the
hardness desired.

Process Chart Excites Comment

This Oil Flow-Plan of the refinery is getting a great deal of attention at
the Main Conference Room where it is used to illustrate special lectures.
The chart is over six feet wide and is painted in many colors. Credit for
the work goes to H. Patist of the Process Department. His art work
dramatizes and gives a clear picture of some major phases of refining.

Greenheart —
A Main B.G. Export

Whenever durability, hardness,
resistance to stress, uniformity and
immunity to parasites, or beauty are
desired in a timber, greenheart, one
of British Guiana’s main exports, is
without doubt at the top of the cla

The "iron tree”, greenheart vy
first shipped to England about 1770.
Engineers were astonished at its
hardness and strength. It could with-
stand the onslaught of all kinds of
marine borers, such as wood-eating
sea worms that eat into docks and
harbor works.

Greenheart in commercial
ties occurs only in British
It’s found along the banks
Demerara, Essiquibo, and Berbice
i though "along the banks” is
a relative term. Much of the timber
is 20 miles or more from the river-
side.

It’s a beautiful tree, practically an
evergreen, averaging from a hundred
to a hundred and thirty feet high.
Exceptional trees are considerably
taller.

Logging is selective. First
order is obtained, then the tr
found to fit it. When the tr
selected, squatters fell them. The
finished product is then ready for
transport straight to its final desti-
nation - a straight, smooth, square
column with sc any taper at
all (less than two inches in 60 feet).

Greenheart is a pale yellow,
evenly grained wood, remarkably

from knots and blemishe In
any tests of strength, bending, com-
ion, or elasticity, it is at least

is strong as oak.

In its home territory, greenheart
is widely used in the construction of
houses. In th respect, it pc ses
another invaluable characteristic - it

, but it does not burn except at
extremely high temperatur The
London County Council has passed
greenheart as a fire-proof building
material.

Unlike teak and oak, it cannot be
described as an all-purpose wood.
Two of its lighter purpos re for
fishing rods and billiard cue Sut,
in the main, it is a heavy construction
timber for dock and harbor works,
jetties, sills, beams, and workshop
floors.

‘Asland’s Name Ship

Leaves Aruba Run

A long and notable chapter in
Lago’s sea history ended this month
when the Esso Aruba, long a main-
stay in the Compan lifeline with
New York, was withdrawn from its
regular Aruba-New York run. For a
limited period, the ocean tanker will
continue in service on other runs.
Consideration being given to <¢
possible replacement on the New
York run.

Built in England in 1931, the vessel
first saw service as the Pan Bolivar.
In 1936 her name was changed to
the Esso Aruba.

The most familiar ocean tanker in
the San Nicolas harbor, the
Aruba has for many years been
ke el in keeping Lago z
family supplied with commi J
stores, fresh water, and_ refinery
equipment.

Perhaps her greatest triumphs
were achieved during the perilous
war years. Even though she was out
of service for six months after being
torpedoed and nearly | her
back broken in 1942, the
piled up what was probably the re-
cord for all the wartime tankers in
the Esso fleet. From September 1939
until V-J Day, in 116 cargoes, the
doughty ship carried the enormous
total of 11,060,473 barrels of vitally
important oil. On fice return trips to
Aruba, she carried her share of the
materials and supplies that were so
necessary to keep Lago operating at
a wartime peak.

Now, after many years of faithful
service, the Esso Aruba is_ being
transferred to other operations.
When she finally heads for retire-

| ment, she will do so with the certain

that she
of Lagoites

has served
long and

knowledge

honorably.

Aruba Comes to Aid of British Guiana Flood Victims





On behalf of the Lago Community Council, Treasurer E. M. Babcany (left)
hands Chairman Charles Rohee of the B.G. Flood Relief Committee a
check for $ 200.

Clothing collected in Aruba to send to the B.G. flood victims is packed

in the Lago Heights garage of Rupert Jailall (wheeling barrel at left).

John Francisco leans over barrel in center, and James Rankin is at right.
In back are some of those who helped with the packing.

Twenty-two cases of clothing col-
lected in Aruba for victims of the
British Guiana floods left early this
month on the lake tanker Bachaque-
ro for B.G. There the clothing will! be
distributed to residents of B.G. who
are so badly in need of it.

The clothing was contributed by
Aruba’s churches, prominent business
firms, the Lago Community Council,
and by individuals from all over the
island. Members of the relief com-
mittee here, who organized Aru
efforts to send aid, are Charles
Rohee (chairman), John Francisco,
Rupert Jailall, David Armogan, C.
St. Aubyn, and Bruce Rodrigues.

It was originally planned to send
the boxes of clothing to B.G. by way
of Surinam on a commercial ship
going to Paramaribo. At the last}
moment, however, members of the
relief committee here were notified
by the Marine Department that the
Bachaquero was unexpectedly sche-
duled for a trip to British Guiana and
Surinam. Through hurried coope |
ion of Marine personnel, the Bri b
Vice Consul, customs officials, <
members of the LPD, the packages |
were gotten aboard the Bachaquero |

The Old Woman and Her Pig

Once upon a time there was an old
woman who did not live in a shoe, and
who did nut have many children; all
she had was a little piggy she had just
bought at the market, and which she
was bringing home with her.

Everything went fine, until they came
before a bridge, and the piggy just
wouldn’t cross it, "Come on piggy”, the
old woman coaxed, "I got to get home
before dark.’ But the piggy wouldn’t
move.

Then the old woman went back until
she met a dog; she said: "Dog, dog,
bite piggy; piggy won't cross the bridge,
and I shall not get home before dark.”

But the dog wouldn’t help her, and
she went on until she met a stick; she
said to the stick: "Stick, stick, beat
dog; dog won’t bite piggy; piggy won’t
cross bridge, and I shall not get home
before dark.”

But the stick wouldn’t help and she
went on, until she met a fire; she said
to the fire: "Fire, fire, burn stick; stick
won’t beat dog; dog won’t bite piggy;
Piggy won’t cross bridge, and I shall
not get home before dark.”

But the fire wouldn’t help and she
went on, until she met some water; she
said to the water: "Water, water,
quench fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick
won't beat dog; dog won't bite piggy;
piggy won't cross bridge, and I shall not
get home before dark.”

But the water wouldn’t help, and she
went on until she met an ox; she said
to the ox; "Ox, ox, drink water; water
won't quench fire; fire won’t burn stick;
stick won’t beat dog; dog won't bite
piggy; piggy won't cross bridge, and I
shall not get home before dark.”

But the ox wouldn't help, so she went
on until she met a butcher; she said tc
the butcher: ’’Butcher, butcher, kill ox;
ox won’t drink water; water won't
quench fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick
won’t beat dog; dog won’t bite piggy;
piggy won’t cross bridge, and I shall
not get home before dark.”

But the butcher wouldn’t help and she
went on, until she met a thick rope; she
said to the rope: "Rope, rope, hang
butcher; butcher won’t kill ox; ox
won't drink water; water won’t quench
fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick won’t
beat dog; dog won't bite piggy; piggy
won't cross bridge and I shall not get
home before dark.”

But the rope wouldn’t help, so she
went on until she met a rat; she said to
the rat: "Rat, rat, gnaw rope; rope
won't hang butcher; butcher won't kill
0x; ox won’t drink water; water won’t
quench fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick
won’t beat dog; dog won't bite piggy;
piggy won’t cross bridge, and I shall not
get home before dark.”

But the rat wouldn’t help, so the poor
old woman went on until she met a cat;
she said to the cat: "Cat, cat, kill rat;
rat won’t gnaw rope; rope won’t hang
butcher; butcher won’t kill ox; ox
won't drink water; water won't quench
fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won’t
beat dog; dog won't bite piggy; piggy
won't cross bridge, and I shall not get
home before dark.”

The cat stretched and yawned and
said: "Get me some fresh milk, and I
shall kill the rat.”

The woman went to a cow and asked
for some milk; the cow said: "Get me
some hay, and I will give you some
milk.”

The woman went to the haymakers
and asked for some hay; the haymakers
said: "Get us some fresh water from
the spring and we shall give you the
hay.”

So the woman got them some fresh
water from the spring, and they gave
her some hay; this she gave to the cow,
and the cow gave her some milk, which

{6 Times Around the World

A recent voyage abstract of the lake
tanker Inverruba was numbered 2775,
and she was commanded by her 48th
master, Captain L. R. Good. Some of
the lads got to speculating as to what
the ship had accomplished to date, and
came up with the following significant
figures:

Assuming 2775 voyages to La Salina
at 360 miles per voyage, the Inverruba
has steamed a total of 990,000 miles, or
the equivalent of nearly 46 times around
the world at the equator.

Carrying an average of 2,500 tons of
oil per voyage, the Inverruba has trans-
ported a total of 6,937,500 tons of crude
on its 2775 trips. This is 48,562,500 net
barrels which, at a 400,000 barrel a day
run, would keep the refinery going for
about 122 days.

Hussev Named Head of
Conservation Group

The name of the ”Refinery Loss
Committee” was this month changed
to »’Oil Conservation Committee”.
Reason for the change in name is
that the new one more accurately
describes the functions of the group.

At the same time the membership
of the committee has been enlarged.
Process Superintendent D. L. Hussey
has been named chairman of the Oil
Conservation Committee. Mr. Hussey,
same to Aruba from
Refinery in New
of

y committee and has had
able experience in oil conser-
vation work.

Other members of the committee
are H. V. Locker, C. J. Griffin, G. L.
MacNutt, W. L. Stiehl, T. M. Binnion,
J. M. Rosborough, H. W. Orr, and
F. B. Roebuck (secretary and field
coordinator).

A key means of keeping down
overall refinery costs, the Oil Con-
servation Committee seeks to eli-
minate various means in the refinery
through which oil is lost in everyday
operations. Sources of oil losses are
tracked down, then steps are taken
to eliminate them.

Luncheon at the Esso Club highlighted the visit here this month of the
Holland-Netherlands West Indies Coordination Council.

Lunch na Esso Club tabata riba programa di Colegio di Coordinacion Ho-
landa-Antillanan Holandes cu a bishita Lago e luna aki.

Holland V.W.1 Economic Group
Visits Aruba & Tours Lago

Lago was host March 2 to over 20
members of the Holland-Netherlands
West Indies Coordination Council.
Included in the group were members
of both the Netherlands and _ the
N.W.I. delegations to the Council.
They were accompanied on their trip
to the refinery by Aruba’s Acting Lt.
Governor.H. A. Hessling. .

(Delegates are presently meeting
in Curacao to further financial and
economic collaboration between Hol-
land and the Dutch West Indies.)

Highlights of the Council’s visit to
Lago were a brief tour through the
refinery, luncheon at the Esso Club,
and a close view of the Company’s
apprentice training program. They
also heard talks by Lago executives
outlining the Company’s present
economic outlook and its employee
relations activities and policies.

Following their arrival at Lago’s
main gate, the delegates were con-
ducted on a brief tour through the
refinery. They visited the harbor
area, the Acid Plant area, and saw





the construction on the new Plant
Commissary building before going
up the main refinery road and

stopping at the Cat Cracker. There
they were shown the Control Room
and taken up the Cat Cracker for a
view of the refinery and Lago Co-
lony area.

Moving on to the conference room
at the General Office Building, the
delegates were welcomed by Lago
President J. J. Horigan. He _ intro-
duced General Manager O. Mingus,
who outlined Lago’s present business

outlook and its prospects for the
future.
After giving a short history of

Lago in Aruba, Mr. Mingus pointed
out the various factors which have
influenced, or are now influencing,
the Company’s production. Among
those were an oversupply of petro-
leum products during 1949, incre 1
oil production in the Middle ast
and Canada, expansion of refining
facilities in Europe, the currency
situation, and import restrictions on
oil products.

Since Lago must process crude oil
cheaper than it can be processed
elsewhere, Mr. Mingus pointed out
that the Company’s present efforts
to reduce costs are a vital part of its
program to operate at the highest
efficiency with the lowest possible
costs.

Following Mr. Mingus’ talk, In-
dustrial and Public Relations Mana-
ger C. F. Smith spoke on employee
relations and Company benefit poli-
cies. In this connection he reviewed
the Company’s employee representat-
ion plan, bringing it up to the recent
date where negotiable and non-ne-
gotiable items are handled by sepa-
rate bodies.

Mr. Smith outlined the history and
success of the apprentice training





program, and pointed out the nume-
rous social benefits which the Com-
pany provides for its employees. He
noted that Lago’s Medical Depart-
ment extended free medical services
to 22,000 persons in Aruba, and that
Lago’s Hospital delivered 800 babies
a year (about half of those born in
Aruba each year).

“After citifig the: emphasis which
Lago places on the safety of its
employees, and the high position the
Company maintains among refineries
with excellent safety records, Mr.
Smith briefly mentioned the main
features of the Company’s various
benefit plans. Among these were
plans to help provide for employees
in case of sickness, accident, retire-
ment, and death, as well as_ the
Thrift Plan and the Vacation Sav-
ings Plan.

Mr. Smith closed his survey with
a brief mention of the Home Building
Foundation. This Company-sponsored
Foundation has built 218 homes for
sale to employees.

From the General Office Building,
the members of the Council went to
the Esso Club for lunch. After lunch
they were taken on a tour of the

BG Still Needs Clothing

Although Aruba’s official drive to
send aid to the flood-stricken people
of British Guiana ends on March 18,
individuals and organizations are
urged to continue sending clothing
to the people there. Recent radio
reports describing the plight of the
people in BG say that there is still
a great need for additional cloth-
ing.

Here’s the procedure to follow for
those who desire to send clothing to
British Guiana: prepare ten-kilo
cartons and address them in care of
Mrs. T. S. Coon, British Red Cross
Society, Eve Leary, Georgetown, BG.
Take or send packages to the post
office in San Nicola or Oranjestad,
where you will be assisted in filling
out the necessary forms. Mailing
charges are only Fls. 1,65 per ten-
kilo carton,

Persons who lack the time to get
to the post office themselves can
leave packages with the Aruba
Express Agency (next to the Rain-
bo Bakery). The Agency will pro-
cess the package at the same
Fls. 1.65 charge plus a small fee for
handling and mailing. |

Aruba has already shown its gene-
rosity to the people of British Guiana
by dispatching 22 cases of clothing |
earlier this month. However, there is |
still a need for more clothing and all |
who can are urged to send any spare |
clothes they have to the people of |
British Guiana. |

Water Tower Goes Down



A spectacular sight for sidewalk engineers was the moving of the water

tower near the Colony Commissary.

Three cranes and a tractor did the

job. The whole tower was lifted into the air by the cranes and then lowered
slowly while the tractor pulled it to a horizontal position. The tower will
be moved to the Plant Commissary area.

Courant, Curacao, N.W.I.

The vast amounts of money industry must spend in finding
out new and better ways of doing things was the subject of a
recent speech by E. V. Murphree of the Standard Oil Develop-

ment Company. The occasion

was a dinner at which 1,000

prominent chemists and business leaders honored him as he
was presented with a medal for his accomplishments in the

chemical profession.

Mr. Murphree pointed out that many research projects
must fail for one reason or another. "The successful projects
must pay for those that are not successful’ he added.

He illustrated his point with three major projects initiated

by our company. The cost up

to now of developing Butyl, a

safer rubber for inner tubes, is eleven million dollars. The fluid
catalytic cracking process (Lago’s "Cat Plant” is an example)
cost nine million dollars in research by the time the first still
was completed. It cost two million dollars to develop the
synthetic toluene (used in TNT) that was one of our company’s
contributions to the war victory.

These are not exceptions;

they are typical of the heavy

expenditures an industry must make to remain strong and
progressive, to provide jobs, to help increase the standard of

living.

Mr. Murphree pointed out that important developments
have come from the research work of small firms or individuals,
but the bulk of industrial development results from the work of
large organizations. Such development, he said, is the lifeblood

of western civilization.

The siesta is all very well. But a

Your good watch deserves good
care. One of the most important
contributions you can make to its
health and long life is to wind it
regularly every morning rather than
when you go to bed, as is the usual
practice. This gives the watch its
greatest "1eserve” strength when it
requires it most—during the active
day and not at night while its owner
sleeps. Watches should always be
wound carefully and gently. A subs-
tantial portion of all repairs involves
injuries to the winding mechan
Wrist watches can be more safely

Boiled exgs should never be boiled,
properly speaking. The reason, it
seems, is that high heat and vigor-
ous boiling tend to rob this protein
food of seme of its flavor and nu-
tritive value. The best procedure,
therefore, is to start your eggs in
cold water, let the water approach
the boiling point, then turn off the
heat, and allow the eggs to stand—cyr
"coddle’—in the hot water for five
to twenty minutes, depending on the
hardness desired.

Process Chart Excites Comment

This Oil Flow-Plan of the refinery is getting a great deal of attention at
the Main Conference Room where it is used to illustrate special lectures.
The chart is over six feet wide and is painted in many colors. Credit for
the work goes to H. Patist of the Process Department. His art work
dramatizes and gives a clear picture of some major phases of refining.

Last Month Second Wettest
February in 20 Years

This past month, when inches
of rain fell, emerged as the second
wettest February in the last 20 y
February 1935, with 3.40 inches,
the only one that tops it.

The average for the month of Fe-
brua based on figures gathered by
the TSD Laboratories since 1929, is
only 33 inches.

January of tl year, when 7.88
inches of rain fell, is by far the
wettest January recorded here. Dur-
ing the first two months of this year
a total of 10.59 inches of rain have
fallen. A comparable period in 1949
saw only 4.34 inches.

‘Asland’s Name Ship

Leaves Aruba Run

A long and notable chapter in
Lago’s sea history ended this month
when the Esso Aruba, long a main-
stay in the Compan lifeline with
New York, was withdrawn from its
regular Aruba-New York run. For a
limited period, the ocean tanker will
continue in service on other runs.
Consideration being given to <¢
possible replacement on the New
York run.

Built in England in 1931, the vessel
first saw service as the Pan Bolivar.
In 1936 her name was changed to
the Esso Aruba.

The most familiar ocean tanker in
the San Nicolas harbor, the
Aruba has for many years been
ke el in keeping Lago z
family supplied with commi J
stores, fresh water, and_ refinery
equipment.

Perhaps her greatest triumphs
were achieved during the perilous
war years. Even though she was out
of service for six months after being
torpedoed and nearly | her
back broken in 1942, the
piled up what was probably the re-
cord for all the wartime tankers in
the Esso fleet. From September 1939
until V-J Day, in 116 cargoes, the
doughty ship carried the enormous
total of 11,060,473 barrels of vitally
important oil. On fice return trips to
Aruba, she carried her share of the
materials and supplies that were so
necessary to keep Lago operating at
a wartime peak.

Now, after many years of faithful
service, the Esso Aruba is_ being
transferred to other operations.
When she finally heads for retire-

Aruba Comes to Aid of British Guiana Flood Victims





On behalf of the Lago Community Council, Treasurer E. M. Babcany (left)
hands Chairman Charles Rohee of the B.G. Flood Relief Committee a
check for $ 200.

Clothing collected in Aruba to send to the B.G. flood victims is packed

in the Lago Heights garage of Rupert Jailall (wheeling barrel at left).

John Francisco leans over barrel in center, and James Rankin is at right.
In back are some of those who helped with the packing.

Twenty-two cases of clothing col-
lected in Aruba for victims of the
British Guiana floods left early this
month on the lake tanker Bachaque-
ro for B.G. There the clothing will! be
distributed to residents of B.G. who
are so badly in need of it.

The clothing was contributed by
Aruba’s churches, prominent business
firms, the Lago Community Council,
and by individuals from all over the
island. Members of the relief com-
mittee here, who organized Aru
efforts to send aid, are Charles
Rohee (chairman), John Francisco,
Rupert Jailall, David Armogan, C.
St. Aubyn, and Bruce Rodrigues.

It was originally planned to send
the boxes of clothing to B.G. by way
of Surinam on a commercial ship
going to Paramaribo. At the last}
moment, however, members of the
relief committee here were notified
by the Marine Department that the
Bachaquero was unexpectedly sche-
duled for a trip to British Guiana and
Surinam. Through hurried coope |

Starts With Barbecue

The Lago Community Council's
1950 drive for funds got off to a
start March 5 with a barbecue. Pur-
pose of the drive was to get funds
to carry on the Council’s benevolent
work in Aruba and_ elsewhere
throughout the world. Last year re-
sidents of Lago Colony gave
$ 24,480.67, and it was hoped that
this year’s drive would exceed that.
A portion of the large crowd at the
barbecue is seen above square danc-

drinks at the barbecue, and one of
the boys seen at left drinking up
the profits.

The Old Woman and Her Pig

Once upon a time there was an old
woman who did not live in a shoe, and
who did nut have many children; all
she had was a little piggy she had just
bought at the market, and which she
was bringing home with her.

Everything went fine, until they came
before a bridge, and the piggy just
wouldn’t cross it, "Come on piggy”, the
old woman coaxed, "I got to get home
before dark.’ But the piggy wouldn’t
move.

Then the old woman went back until
she met a dog; she said: "Dog, dog,
bite piggy; piggy won't cross the bridge,
and I shall not get home before dark.”

But the dog wouldn’t help her, and
she went on until she met a stick; she
said to the stick: "Stick, stick, beat
dog; dog won’t bite piggy; piggy won’t
cross bridge, and I shall not get home
before dark.”

But the stick wouldn’t help and she
went on, until she met a fire; she said
to the fire: "Fire, fire, burn stick; stick
won’t beat dog; dog won’t bite piggy;
Piggy won’t cross bridge, and I shall
not get home before dark.”

But the fire wouldn’t help and she
went on, until she met some water; she
said to the water: "Water, water,
quench fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick
won't beat dog; dog won't bite piggy;
piggy won't cross bridge, and I shall not
get home before dark.”

But the water wouldn’t help, and she
went on until she met an ox; she said
to the ox; "Ox, ox, drink water; water
won't quench fire; fire won’t burn stick;
stick won’t beat dog; dog won't bite
piggy; piggy won't cross bridge, and I
shall not get home before dark.”

But the ox wouldn't help, so she went
on until she met a butcher; she said tc
the butcher: ’’Butcher, butcher, kill ox;
ox won’t drink water; water won't
quench fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick
won’t beat dog; dog won’t bite piggy;
piggy won’t cross bridge, and I shall
not get home before dark.”

But the butcher wouldn’t help and she
went on, until she met a thick rope; she
said to the rope: "Rope, rope, hang
butcher; butcher won’t kill ox; ox
won't drink water; water won’t quench
fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick won’t
beat dog; dog won't bite piggy; piggy
won't cross bridge and I shall not get
home before dark.”

But the rope wouldn’t help, so she
went on until she met a rat; she said to
the rat: "Rat, rat, gnaw rope; rope
won't hang butcher; butcher won't kill
0x; ox won’t drink water; water won’t
quench fire; fire won’t burn stick; stick
won’t beat dog; dog won't bite piggy;
piggy won’t cross bridge, and I shall not
get home before dark.”

But the rat wouldn’t help, so the poor
old woman went on until she met a cat;
she said to the cat: "Cat, cat, kill rat;
rat won’t gnaw rope; rope won’t hang
butcher; butcher won’t kill ox; ox
won't drink water; water won't quench
fire; fire won't burn stick; stick won’t
beat dog; dog won't bite piggy; piggy
won't cross bridge, and I shall not get
home before dark.”

The cat stretched and yawned and
said: "Get me some fresh milk, and I
shall kill the rat.”

The woman went to a cow and asked
for some milk; the cow said: "Get me
some hay, and I will give you some
milk.”

The woman went to the haymakers
and asked for some hay; the haymakers
said: "Get us some fresh water from
the spring and we shall give you the
hay.”

So the woman got them some fresh
water from the spring, and they gave
her some hay; this she gave to the cow,
and the cow gave her some milk, which

{6 Times Around the World

A recent voyage abstract of the lake
tanker Inverruba was numbered 2775,
and she was commanded by her 48th
master, Captain L. R. Good. Some of
the lads got to speculating as to what
the ship had accomplished to date, and
came up with the following significant
figures:

Assuming 2775 voyages to La Salina
at 360 miles per voyage, the Inverruba
has steamed a total of 990,000 miles, or
the equivalent of nearly 46 times around

Carrying an average of 2,500 tons of
oil per voyage, the Inverruba has trans-
ported a total of 6,937,500 tons of crude

run, would keep the refinery going for
about 122 days.
