Venezuelans Honor Patriot

Venezuelans everywhere last month
celebrated the ar anniversary
of the birth of General Francisco de
Miranda (1750-1816), one of the
chief figures in Venezuela’s early
struggles for independence.

In Caracas three days of national
holiday began March 28, and the
celebration was made the occasion for
dedicating many public works includ-
ing bridges, aqueducts, schools, and
a national military academy mo-
deled after West Point. Ecuador
honored the event by renaming its
military school after the General,
and in Paris French President Auriol
assisted in a memorial ceremeny at
University of the Sorbonne.

In Aruba the anniversary w:
recognized at the Sociedad Boliy
viana with speeches and entertain-
ment including popular songs and
dances of Venezuela.








Set by Bolivariana

The Sociedad Bolivariana will
put on a four-day fair beginning on
Friday, April 21, and _ lasting
through Monday, April 24. A full
program of events has been lined
up at the Sociedad Bolivariana
clubhouse, with activities starting at
8 each evening and going on till 1
a.m. (except on Sunday, the 28rd,
when the program will begin at 4
in the afternoon for the children’s
benefit).

Twenty-two booths at the fair
will be operated by the club, with 15

more handled by outside organiza-
tions. Raffles will be held every
night and there’ll be all kinds of

of chance with valuable
priz going to the winner

A special feature of the fair will
be the election of a queen. Votes for
queen will sell for ten cents, and
patrons may vote as many times as
they please. Name of the queen
will be announced on the final night

A band will play for dancing, and
there'll be two areas for dancing.
One, charging admission, will be
outdoors; the other will be on the
roof, with champagne purchases at
the champagne booth entitling per-
sons to admission.

Members of the Sociedad Boliva-
riana, which has a membership of
148, have made special arrange-
ments with the bus companies to in-
sure bus transportation up till 1.

games









As the ninth Queen’s Birthday Olympiad approaches, island
athletes will again turn out to compete against one another for
top honors. Performing at the Lago Sport Park this year will
be well-known athletes whose outstanding ability has been
recognized from their appearances there in past years. And
there will also be young sportsmen performing there for the
first time, youngsters who are hopeful of beginning their climb

up the sports ladder.

As time for this year’s sports events draws near, each

entrant becomes more hopeful

of his chances of achieving

athletic honors. Each also will have friends there pulling for

him to win.

Spectators at Olympiads in the past have seen outstanding
feats of athletic ability — there is no reason to believe that
they will be denied the privilege of witnessing performances and
sportsmanship of a high order this year.

More important than the winning of individual honors and
awards is the healthy spirit of competition these games foster.
For, as the noted sports writer Grantland Rice once wrote,

"When the One Great Scorer comes to write against your

name —

”He marks — not that you won or lost — but how you played

the game.”

Esso Chattanooga
Sets New Record
In Turnaround Time:

A new record in tanker turnaround
time was set last week when the
Esso Chattanooga entered and left
San Nicolas Harbor in only nine
hours and forty-three minutes.

Justly proud of this new record
are the men of the Marine Depart-
ment, Receiving and Shipping, and
the Chattanooga who worked together
to speed the job. The Esso Chatta-
nooga arrived at Aruba at 6:42 in
the morning, began loading at 10:10;
completed loading at 3:45 in the
afternoon, and left the harbor at
4:25. The load was 102,563 barrels
at an average rate of 18,371 barrels
per hour.

The Esso Chattanooga set the pre-
vious record of 10 hours just the
week before. On future trips to
Aruba the crew of the tanker and
the men on shore hope their turn-
around time will be cut even closer.

Flag-Changing Recalls
San Cristobal’s History
"Built in Minnesota”

On Saturday, Apri] 1, the Esso
San Cristobal flew new colors at her
mast as the Panamanian Flag came
down and the Venezuelan Flag went
up. Present at the ceremony were
Venezuelan Consul Ramon Madrid,
Panamanian Consul Carlos N. Sa-
mudio, Officials from Creole, and
members of the Marine Department.

The change to the Venezuelan flag
will make it possible for the San
Cristobal to carry on shipping
between ports in Venezuela. Captain
A. Zulaika took ever from Captain,
R. B. Napier as new skipper.

The Esso San Cristobal has an
unusual history, It was one of the “dry
land” ships built during the war in
Duluth, Minnesota. Her sea launching
took place in the Gulf of Mexico
after a long and difficult trip down
the canals and rivers of the midwest
United States,

New Rule Affects T.I.Q. Cases
Failing to Report Back on Time

In the past, many employees who were treated in quarters have
failed to report back to the Dispensary or Hospital on the date shown
on their slip. This has been particularly true where a weekend or a
holiday was involved. For instance, an employee due to report on
Friday, with the likelihood that he would be assigned to work on
Saturday, might report on Monday instead.

cases, employees are
instructed to report back to the
Dispensary or Hospital on a certain
date so that their medical treatment
won't be interrupted. Reporting back
on a certain date also gives the
doctor the best opportunity to follow
aand check the patient’s progress.

In addition to the medical reasons
for reporting on time, considerable
lost time results when employees fail
to report on the specified date.

Because of this, it is essential that
employees report to the Dispensary
or Hospital on time after being
treated in quarters. Effective April
17, whenever a man does not report
on the date instructed and is found
to be fit for duty, his sickness bene-
fits payments will end with the day
before the date he was originally
requested to return. His department
will then report him AWOL, or if
he presents a certificate from a
licensed physician covering his un-
fitness for the period of his absence,
he will be reported as off with per-
mission. In either event, of course,
the employee will not receive sickness
benefits unless when he reports the

In many

Medical Department finds he is still
unfit for duty from the same illness.
In this case, sickness benefits will
be paid.

Arrangements are being made to
have a reminder of this information
printed in English and Papiamento
on the back of the Treated in Quar-
ters slips which are issued to the
employee.

Apprentices Go One Year
Without Disabling Injury

For the first time since 1946,
Lago’s apprentices have gone a full
year without a single lost time in-
jury. Their outstandir safety
record began in April 1949.

Credit for achieving this fine
record is aue the 400 boys who had
a part in making it, and to their
instructors. Also having a vital part
in achieving this accident-free year
are the safety monitors in the Ap-
prentice School and the Apprentice
Safety Committee. Members of the
Committee are F. Kersout, F. Fran-
cis, P. Volney, M. Jessurun, C. Bat-

The Rabbit that Sneezed

Mr. Rabbit and Mr. Monkey were
great friends. One day while they
were chatting by the road, they saw
a man approaching with a load of
sugar and fruits. Mr. Monkey decid-
ed he was to have some of it. Switch-
ing on his thinking machine, he had
a plan in no time. Mr. Rabbit was to
go out on the road and hop about.
The man would then surely drop his
load to try to catch him, and in the
meantime Mr. Monkey would hide the
load away safely, and upon the rab-
bit’s return they would share it.
rything went according to plan,
but when Mr. Rabbit came back for
his share, he found Mr. Monkey
perched way up in a tree, munching
away. He asked for his share, and the
mor said it was all gone, but the
rabbit wouldn’t believe it, so the
monkey picked him up by his long
ears up into the tree to show him it
was all gone. And as if that wasn’t
enough, he made great fun of Mr.
Rabbit and went and left him sitting
in the tree.

Mr. Rabbit was so scared he didn’t
dare move. A friendly rhinoceros
came by and Mr. Rabbit asked him to
let him jump down on his broad back.
The rhinoceros agreed, but the rabbit
came down with such a thud, that
the rhinoceros fell on his old nose
and broke his neck, and died.

The rabbit ran and ran until he
came to the king’s palace and hid
under the throne. Soon after the king
came in, followed by his men, and
stepped up to his throne. Just then a
terrible sneeze was heard.

The king roared: "Who dares to |
sneeze in the king’s presence? Off |
with his head!” Another terrific
sneeze followed the kings’ words, but
this time the king’s men had noticed |
that the sound came from under the |
throne, and they hauled out the poor
rabbit by his long ears. |

"Off with his head!” the king
roared.

"Wait,” the rabbit cried, "if you'll
let your men come with me, I'll give
them a dead rhinoceros.”

The men laughed loudly, but just
out of curiosity they decided to
follow the rabbit. He lead them to
the place where the rhinoceros had
fallen flat on his old nose. It was a
huge one and the king was glad to
have it, for the horn is good to cure
many diseases, and the king’s doctor
made a wonderful medicine out of it.,
The king was so pleased that he gave
Mr. Rabbit a beautiful coat embroi-
dered in gold, a black horse, and 2
bag full of gold.

When the rabbit got back to the
woods, whom should he meet but
Mr. Monkey, whose eyes popped upon
seeing all the finery.

"The king gave it to me,” the rab-
bit told him, "for sneezing under his
throne; it was such a terrific sneeze,
that it predicted a long and happy |
life for the king and his family.” |

Mr. Monkey decided he too could ,
use a few gifts, so he ran to the}














| King’s palace and hid under the |

throne. As the king came in he gave
a terrific sneeze, The king ordered |
the sneezers’ head to be cut off. Out |
came the monkey from under the |
throne and the king asked him what
he had to offer to save his head. |

The monkey was short of an
answer this time, so the king’s men
lead him away and his head was

cut off.

CYI Holiday Cards
Given to Employees

Coin Your Ideas recently passed
out the holiday cards which it an-
nually gives to employees. This
year’s card, the most attractive yet
designed, contains several other
features in addition to the 1950 ho-
lidays. Along one edge is a three-
inch ruler, and on the back side is
the schedule of paydays for this year.

On the front, in addition to a 1950
calendar with the holidays marked
in black, there’s a small map of
Aruba. On both sides, the CYI owl
urges employees to coin their ideas.

The cards were passed out through
the various departments. Any em-
ployee who failed to get one should
ask his supervisor for one.

Venezuelans Honor Patriot

Venezuelans everywhere last month
celebrated the ar anniversary
of the birth of General Francisco de
Miranda (1750-1816), one of the
chief figures in Venezuela’s early
struggles for independence.

In Caracas three days of national
holiday began March 28, and the
celebration was made the occasion for
dedicating many public works includ-
ing bridges, aqueducts, schools, and
a national military academy mo-
deled after West Point. Ecuador
honored the event by renaming its
military school after the General,
and in Paris French President Auriol
assisted in a memorial ceremeny at
University of the Sorbonne.

In Aruba the anniversary w:
recognized at the Sociedad Boliy
viana with speeches and entertain-
ment including popular songs and
dances of Venezuela.








Set by Bolivariana

The Sociedad Bolivariana will
put on a four-day fair beginning on
Friday, April 21, and _ lasting
through Monday, April 24. A full
program of events has been lined
up at the Sociedad Bolivariana
clubhouse, with activities starting at
8 each evening and going on till 1
a.m. (except on Sunday, the 28rd,
when the program will begin at 4
in the afternoon for the children’s
benefit).

Twenty-two booths at the fair
will be operated by the club, with 15

more handled by outside organiza-
tions. Raffles will be held every
night and there’ll be all kinds of

of chance with valuable
priz going to the winner

A special feature of the fair will
be the election of a queen. Votes for
queen will sell for ten cents, and
patrons may vote as many times as
they please. Name of the queen
will be announced on the final night

A band will play for dancing, and
there'll be two areas for dancing.
One, charging admission, will be
outdoors; the other will be on the
roof, with champagne purchases at
the champagne booth entitling per-
sons to admission.

Members of the Sociedad Boliva-
riana, which has a membership of
148, have made special arrange-
ments with the bus companies to in-
sure bus transportation up till 1.

games









As the ninth Queen’s Birthday Olympiad approaches, island
athletes will again turn out to compete against one another for
top honors. Performing at the Lago Sport Park this year will
be well-known athletes whose outstanding ability has been
recognized from their appearances there in past years. And
there will also be young sportsmen performing there for the
first time, youngsters who are hopeful of beginning their climb

up the sports ladder.

As time for this year’s sports events draws near, each

entrant becomes more hopeful

of his chances of achieving

athletic honors. Each also will have friends there pulling for

him to win.

Spectators at Olympiads in the past have seen outstanding
feats of athletic ability — there is no reason to believe that
they will be denied the privilege of witnessing performances and
sportsmanship of a high order this year.

More important than the winning of individual honors and
awards is the healthy spirit of competition these games foster.
For, as the noted sports writer Grantland Rice once wrote,

"When the One Great Scorer comes to write against your

name —

”He marks — not that you won or lost — but how you played

the game.”

Esso Chattanooga
Sets New Record
In Turnaround Time:

A new record in tanker turnaround
time was set last week when the
Esso Chattanooga entered and left
San Nicolas Harbor in only nine
hours and forty-three minutes.

Justly proud of this new record
are the men of the Marine Depart-
ment, Receiving and Shipping, and
the Chattanooga who worked together
to speed the job. The Esso Chatta-
nooga arrived at Aruba at 6:42 in
the morning, began loading at 10:10;
completed loading at 3:45 in the
afternoon, and left the harbor at
4:25. The load was 102,563 barrels
at an average rate of 18,371 barrels
per hour.

The Esso Chattanooga set the pre-
vious record of 10 hours just the
week before. On future trips to
Aruba the crew of the tanker and
the men on shore hope their turn-
around time will be cut even closer.

Flag-Changing Recalls
San Cristobal’s History
"Built in Minnesota”

On Saturday, Apri] 1, the Esso
San Cristobal flew new colors at her
mast as the Panamanian Flag came
down and the Venezuelan Flag went
up. Present at the ceremony were
Venezuelan Consul Ramon Madrid,
Panamanian Consul Carlos N. Sa-
mudio, Officials from Creole, and
members of the Marine Department.

The change to the Venezuelan flag
will make it possible for the San
Cristobal to carry on shipping
between ports in Venezuela. Captain
A. Zulaika took ever from Captain,
R. B. Napier as new skipper.

The Esso San Cristobal has an
unusual history, It was one of the “dry
land” ships built during the war in
Duluth, Minnesota. Her sea launching
took place in the Gulf of Mexico
after a long and difficult trip down
the canals and rivers of the midwest
United States,

New Rule Affects T.I.Q. Cases
Failing to Report Back on Time

In the past, many employees who were treated in quarters have
failed to report back to the Dispensary or Hospital on the date shown
on their slip. This has been particularly true where a weekend or a
holiday was involved. For instance, an employee due to report on
Friday, with the likelihood that he would be assigned to work on
Saturday, might report on Monday instead.

cases, employees are
instructed to report back to the
Dispensary or Hospital on a certain
date so that their medical treatment
won't be interrupted. Reporting back
on a certain date also gives the
doctor the best opportunity to follow
aand check the patient’s progress.

In addition to the medical reasons
for reporting on time, considerable
lost time results when employees fail
to report on the specified date.

Because of this, it is essential that
employees report to the Dispensary
or Hospital on time after being
treated in quarters. Effective April
17, whenever a man does not report
on the date instructed and is found
to be fit for duty, his sickness bene-
fits payments will end with the day
before the date he was originally
requested to return. His department
will then report him AWOL, or if
he presents a certificate from a
licensed physician covering his un-
fitness for the period of his absence,
he will be reported as off with per-
mission. In either event, of course,
the employee will not receive sickness
benefits unless when he reports the

In many

Medical Department finds he is still
unfit for duty from the same illness.
In this case, sickness benefits will
be paid.

Arrangements are being made to
have a reminder of this information
printed in English and Papiamento
on the back of the Treated in Quar-
ters slips which are issued to the
employee.

Apprentices Go One Year
Without Disabling Injury

For the first time since 1946,
Lago’s apprentices have gone a full
year without a single lost time in-
jury. Their outstandir safety
record began in April 1949.

Credit for achieving this fine
record is aue the 400 boys who had
a part in making it, and to their
instructors. Also having a vital part
in achieving this accident-free year
are the safety monitors in the Ap-
prentice School and the Apprentice
Safety Committee. Members of the
Committee are F. Kersout, F. Fran-
cis, P. Volney, M. Jessurun, C. Bat-
son, and W. A. Keible

The Franklin Delano Roosevelt House















"A token of perpetual friendship between the people of the United States

and the people of the Netherlands West Indies”’

was Goyernor Peters’ |

d iption of Roosevelt House (above). The beautiful building in Curagao

was last month presented to the United States Government by the people
of the N.W.L. in gratitude for the aid rendered them by the U



S. during

the war. The handsome eight-room house includes a Roosevelt library
featured by a large portrait in oils of the U.S. wartime president.

E bunita cas ta inclui Libreria Roosevelt, unda tin un portret pinta di e

Amistad Perpetuo

Papiando pa hendenan di Antilla-

cu Casa Roosevelt ta un prueba di
amistad perpetuo entre hendenan di
Merca y hendenan di Antillanan Ho-

The Rabbit that Sneezed

Mr. Rabbit and Mr. Monkey were
great friends. One day while they
were chatting by the road, they saw
a man approaching with a load of
sugar and fruits. Mr. Monkey decid-
ed he was to have some of it. Switch-
ing on his thinking machine, he had
a plan in no time. Mr. Rabbit was to
go out on the road and hop about.
The man would then surely drop his
load to try to catch him, and in the
meantime Mr. Monkey would hide the
load away safely, and upon the rab-
bit’s return they would share it.
rything went according to plan,
but when Mr. Rabbit came back for
his share, he found Mr. Monkey
perched way up in a tree, munching
away. He asked for his share, and the
mor said it was all gone, but the
rabbit wouldn’t believe it, so the
monkey picked him up by his long
ears up into the tree to show him it
was all gone. And as if that wasn’t
enough, he made great fun of Mr.
Rabbit and went and left him sitting
in the tree.

Mr. Rabbit was so scared he didn’t
dare move. A friendly rhinoceros
came by and Mr. Rabbit asked him to
let him jump down on his broad back.
The rhinoceros agreed, but the rabbit
came down with such a thud, that
the rhinoceros fell on his old nose
and broke his neck, and died.

The rabbit ran and ran until he
came to the king’s palace and hid
under the throne. Soon after the king
came in, followed by his men, and
stepped up to his throne. Just then a
terrible sneeze was heard.

The king roared: "Who dares to |
sneeze in the king’s presence? Off |
with his head!” Another terrific
sneeze followed the kings’ words, but
this time the king’s men had noticed |
that the sound came from under the |
throne, and they hauled out the poor
rabbit by his long ears. |

"Off with his head!” the king
roared.

"Wait,” the rabbit cried, "if you'll
let your men come with me, I'll give
them a dead rhinoceros.”

The men laughed loudly, but just
out of curiosity they decided to
follow the rabbit. He lead them to
the place where the rhinoceros had
fallen flat on his old nose. It was a
huge one and the king was glad to
have it, for the horn is good to cure
many diseases, and the king’s doctor
made a wonderful medicine out of it.,
The king was so pleased that he gave
Mr. Rabbit a beautiful coat embroi-
dered in gold, a black horse, and 2
bag full of gold.

When the rabbit got back to the
woods, whom should he meet but
Mr. Monkey, whose eyes popped upon
seeing all the finery.

"The king gave it to me,” the rab-
bit told him, "for sneezing under his
throne; it was such a terrific sneeze,
that it predicted a long and happy |
life for the king and his family.” |

Mr. Monkey decided he too could ,
use a few gifts, so he ran to the}














| King’s palace and hid under the |

throne. As the king came in he gave
a terrific sneeze, The king ordered |
the sneezers’ head to be cut off. Out |
came the monkey from under the |
throne and the king asked him what
he had to offer to save his head. |

The monkey was short of an
answer this time, so the king’s men
lead him away and his head was

cut off.
