(A section for employees’ good ideas on reducing costs.)

All over the plant employees are finding ways

TO SAVE waste motion

TO MAKE one handling do where several were used

ri before;

TO FIND easier, shorter, cheaper ways of doing a
job (but doing it just as well).

Usually it takes planning —

combining parts of a job, or

scheduling it differently — cutting out parts that don’t
really help — or using materials that are just as good but
less costly. Always it takes thinking.

program. One blanket report form does just as well, and eliminates
typing 500 individual forms annually.

ITEM -

In the past, from one to four cargo hoses were transported from
storage to the shops for a certain operation. Now M&C and R&S
forces have agreed on a new method; hoses are accumulated until
there are 28 on hand, then the entire job is done in the field.
Result, a large saving in the charges for the heavy moving equip-
ment that formerly transported the hoses.

The shop zone receives daily orders for parts to be made from
a special hard steel for certain services. Yet the special steel is no

Mulo Senior Class
Sees Lago at work

Nineteen students, members of this
year’s graduating class at Oranje-
stad’s Mulo School, had a chance to
see a large refinery in operation this
month when they were conducted on
a tour of Lago. The students were
accompanied on their tour April 18
by their school principal and three
of their teachers.

After being met at Lago’s main
gate, they heard a talk by John De
Lange, of the Training Division. He
gave them a survey of petroleum
activities from the time geologists
find oil in the ground until it’s re-
fined and shipped out to various
worldwide markets.

Riding on a Company bus, the
students toured the refinery area
and went through the tank farm.
They made special stops at the Alky
Plant control room, the Apprentice
Shops, the IBM room in the Account-
ing Department, and at the Power-
house.

At the end of their trip they were
served refreshments, and each re-
ceived a souvenir of his visit.

C. D. Irasquin is principal of the
Mulo School, and teachers who made
the tour were J. Droog, P. van Kui-
lenburg, and P. J. Valk.

PUBLISHED EVERY SECOND FRIDAY AT ARUBA, NETHERLANDS
WEST INDIES, BY THE LAGO OIL & TRANSPORT CO., LTD.

Printed by the Curagaosche Courant, Curagao, N.W.1I.

April 30, 1950

For the second time within half a century, Netherlanders
are celebrating the birthday of their Queen on a date other
than August 31. It has been almost two years since Queen
Juliana ascended to the throne, two years that have been
critical ones in the world’s history.

On the occasion of Queen Juliana’s birthday, people of the
Netherlands will gather at many points scattered about the
globe to toast their Queen, and to wish her a long and pros-
perous reign. In addition, many citizens of other nationalities
will pause to pay tribute to the reigning figure of the House
of Orange.

Lago joins Aruba, and friends of the Queen elsewhere, in
wishing her a happy birthday, and many more to come. With
the best wishes of her people goes the hope that that she will
continue to guide them successfully through these perilous
times with wisdom and understanding.

in the Instrument Department, head-
ed by Mr. Jensen, and Francisco
Dijkhoff in the Equipment Inspection
Group, under Mr. Seekins.

Both bo are now studying on
Company scholarships at the Allen-
town Vocational Public High School.

Mr. Jensen, who stopped off to see
the two Aruban youngsters while he
was on furlough, has returned to
Aruba with an account of his visit.
He went out from New York to see
the boys, and spent the day with
them. Dominico and Francisco con-
ducted him on a tour of the school
building, including the various shops,
the library, the gym, and other fa-
cilities. When Mr. Jensen told the
boys they must have dinner with
him that evening, they replied, No,
you come to our house for dinner.”
So their Lago visitor dined with
them in the home of D. L. Wilkinson,
where the two lads living during
their y in the States. Afterwards
Mr. Jensen joined them on a drive
about the city, with Dominico and

ancisco pointing out the various
sites of interest.

Mr. Jensen brought back excellent
reports of the two Aruban youths -
all persons with whom he came in
contact spoke highly of their behav-
iour, efforts to learn, and ability.

"Mr. and M Wilkinson, with
whom the boys live, treat them just
like members of their family, and
in their house the lads have really
found a ’home away from home’,”
Mr. Jensen said.

Keep L Signs Small

Persons who are learning to drive
on the island are strongly urged to
ure in making and placing the
igns on their windshields. T
signs, signifying ” r
should not be so large that they
obstruct the diiver’s view of the road.
In addition, they should be placed
high on the front windshield so that
the driver has a clear, complete view
of the road ahead and of intersect-
ions on both sides.

use

visit, Mr. Seekins spent two days in
Allentown. Because of his longer
visit, the youngsters were able to
show him more places where they
spend their free time in Allentown.
They visited the YMCA, or Young
Men’s Christian Association, and
showed him the swimming pool
where they swim three times a week;
the boys’ division on another floor
where they play ping pong and other
games; and the gymnasium, where
they play basketball. They also went
to the Central Catholic High School,
where Mr. Seekins met Father Hues-
man and was shown the various fa-
cilities there. Among the things he
saw was Rockne Hall, where the
boys often go to dances on Friday
nights.

Both Dominico and Francisco have
expressed their appreciation of the
visits they’ve had from Lagoites
who’ve dropped by to see them, and
ask to be remembered to their
friends here.

Both are getting along fine in
their school work, and in the words
of Mr. Jensen, "are bringing credit
to their parents, to Aruba, and to
Lago.”

Traffic Safety Move
Started on Island

Two steps have recently been taken
by organizations to improve the
traffic safety situation on the island.
One is being sponsored by the Lions
Club, and the other by the Orange
Association in connection with the
Queen’s Birthday celebration.

The Lions Club has appointed a
committee to work on bettering the
traffic problem. The committee will
concentrate on safety tivities in
connection with th sland’s youth.
Along this line, they will work toward
setting up school safety patrols to
assist in regulating traffic before
and after school hours.

On May 1 the Orange Association
will sponsor a safe driving contest,
which will be open to all drivers in
Aruba. There will be contests for
passenger cars, trucks, station wa-
gons, and buses, with cash and
merchandise prizes going to the
winners.

Contestants will drive oyer island
roads, where their knowledge of the
various safety rules will be tested.
The contest begins at 9 o’clock the
morning of May 1 from the Flamingo
Room.

As an added traffic safety incen-
tive, efforts are being made to get

| the Dutch motion picture, "Two Boys

and a Car,” for showing in Aruba.

Traffic safety is a problem that
requires the cooperation of all drivers
on the island. Those in charge of
eliminating unsafe conditions ask
the cooperation of parents, teachers,
and others in Aruba who can con-

| tribute to making the island’s high-

ways safer.

‘Still Calls Them

The clanging of a bell is a familiar
sound to anyone who lives near Ed
Byington of Industrial Relations. If
they had heard that same bell 100
years ago it would have meant that
Reverend Cyrus Byington was calling
the Choctaw Indians to Christian
services at his mission in Indian
Territory, later Oklahoma. The bell
is a family heirloom, but not the
kind that gathers dust in a glass
case. Now the sound means that it is
time for daughters Ma Ann and
| Martha to come home from their
play. It works, too.

Their great-great-grandfather, af-
ter studying lav Hebrew, and
theology in Massachusetts, was
licensed to preach in 1819. He
intended to go to the Armenians in
Turkey, but before he got around to
it he was persuaded to lead a group
of 25 people on their way to the
Choctaw Indian Nation.

He was ready on a few hours
notice, and travelled with them down

(A section for employees’ good ideas on reducing costs.)

All over the plant employees are finding ways

TO SAVE waste motion

TO MAKE one handling do where several were used

ri before;

TO FIND easier, shorter, cheaper ways of doing a
job (but doing it just as well).

Usually it takes planning —

combining parts of a job, or

scheduling it differently — cutting out parts that don’t
really help — or using materials that are just as good but
less costly. Always it takes thinking.

In the past, from one to four cargo hoses were transported from

The shop zone receives daily orders for parts to be made from

Mulo Senior Class
Sees Lago at work

Nineteen students, members of this
year’s graduating class at Oranje-
stad’s Mulo School, had a chance to
see a large refinery in operation this
month when they were conducted on
a tour of Lago. The students were
accompanied on their tour April 18
by their school principal and three
of their teachers.

After being met at Lago’s main
gate, they heard a talk by John De
Lange, of the Training Division. He
gave them a survey of petroleum
activities from the time geologists
find oil in the ground until it’s re-
fined and shipped out to various
worldwide markets.

Riding on a Company bus, the
students toured the refinery area
and went through the tank farm.
They made special stops at the Alky
Plant control room, the Apprentice
Shops, the IBM room in the Account-
ing Department, and at the Power-
house.

At the end of their trip they were
served refreshments, and each re-
ceived a souvenir of his visit.

C. D. Irasquin is principal of the
Mulo School, and teachers who made
the tour were J. Droog, P. van Kui-
lenburg, and P. J. Valk.

April 30, 1950

For the second time within half a century, Netherlanders
are celebrating the birthday of their Queen on a date other
than August 31. It has been almost two years since Queen
Juliana ascended to the throne, two years that have been
critical ones in the world’s history.

On the occasion of Queen Juliana’s birthday, people of the
Netherlands will gather at many points scattered about the
globe to toast their Queen, and to wish her a long and pros-
perous reign. In addition, many citizens of other nationalities
will pause to pay tribute to the reigning figure of the House
of Orange.

Lago joins Aruba, and friends of the Queen elsewhere, in
wishing her a happy birthday, and many more to come. With
the best wishes of her people goes the hope that that she will
continue to guide them successfully through these perilous
times with wisdom and understanding.

in the Instrument Department, head-
ed by Mr. Jensen, and Francisco
Dijkhoff in the Equipment Inspection
Group, under Mr. Seekins.

Both bo are now studying on
Company scholarships at the Allen-
town Vocational Public High School.

Mr. Jensen, who stopped off to see
the two Aruban youngsters while he
was on furlough, has returned to
Aruba with an account of his visit.
He went out from New York to see
the boys, and spent the day with
them. Dominico and Francisco con-
ducted him on a tour of the school
building, including the various shops,
the library, the gym, and other fa-
cilities. When Mr. Jensen told the
boys they must have dinner with
him that evening, they replied, No,
you come to our house for dinner.”
So their Lago visitor dined with
them in the home of D. L. Wilkinson,
where the two lads living during
their y in the States. Afterwards
Mr. Jensen joined them on a drive
about the city, with Dominico and

ancisco pointing out the various
sites of interest.

Mr. Jensen brought back excellent
reports of the two Aruban youths -
all persons with whom he came in
contact spoke highly of their behav-
iour, efforts to learn, and ability.

"Mr. and M Wilkinson, with
whom the boys live, treat them just
like members of their family, and
in their house the lads have really
found a ’home away from home’,”
Mr. Jensen said.

Keep L Signs Small

Persons who are learning to drive
on the island are strongly urged to
ure in making and placing the
igns on their windshields. T
signs, signifying ” r
should not be so large that they
obstruct the diiver’s view of the road.
In addition, they should be placed
high on the front windshield so that
the driver has a clear, complete view
of the road ahead and of intersect-
ions on both sides.

Jensen’s

use

visit, Mr. Seekins spent two days in
Allentown. Because of his longer
visit, the youngsters were able to
show him more places where they
spend their free time in Allentown.
They visited the YMCA, or Young
Men’s Christian Association, and
showed him the swimming pool
where they swim three times a week;
the boys’ division on another floor
where they play ping pong and other
games; and the gymnasium, where
they play basketball. They also went
to the Central Catholic High School,
where Mr. Seekins met Father Hues-
man and was shown the various fa-
cilities there. Among the things he
saw was Rockne Hall, where the
boys often go to dances on Friday
nights.

Both Dominico and Francisco have
expressed their appreciation of the
visits they’ve had from Lagoites
who’ve dropped by to see them, and
ask to be remembered to their
friends here.

Both are getting along fine in
their school work, and in the words
of Mr. Jensen, "are bringing credit
to their parents, to Aruba, and to
Lago.”

Traffic Safety Move
Started on Island

Two steps have recently been taken
by organizations to improve the
traffic safety situation on the island.
One is being sponsored by the Lions
Club, and the other by the Orange
Association in connection with the
Queen’s Birthday celebration.

The Lions Club has appointed a
committee to work on bettering the
traffic problem. The committee will
concentrate on safety tivities in
connection with th sland’s youth.
Along this line, they will work toward
setting up school safety patrols to
assist in regulating traffic before
and after school hours.

On May 1 the Orange Association
will sponsor a safe driving contest,
which will be open to all drivers in
Aruba. There will be contests for
passenger cars, trucks, station wa-
gons, and buses, with cash and
merchandise prizes going to the
winners.

Contestants will drive oyer island
roads, where their knowledge of the
various safety rules will be tested.
The contest begins at 9 o’clock the
morning of May 1 from the Flamingo
Room.

As an added traffic safety incen-
tive, efforts are being made to get

| the Dutch motion picture, "Two Boys

and a Car,” for showing in Aruba.

Traffic safety is a problem that
requires the cooperation of all drivers
on the island. Those in charge of
eliminating unsafe conditions ask
the cooperation of parents, teachers,
and others in Aruba who can con-

| tribute to making the island’s high-

ways safer.

‘Still Calls Them

The clanging of a bell is a familiar
sound to anyone who lives near Ed
Byington of Industrial Relations. If
they had heard that same bell 100
years ago it would have meant that
Reverend Cyrus Byington was calling
the Choctaw Indians to Christian
services at his mission in Indian
Territory, later Oklahoma. The bell
is a family heirloom, but not the
kind that gathers dust in a glass
case. Now the sound means that it is
time for daughters Ma Ann and
| Martha to come home from their
play. It works, too.

Their great-great-grandfather, af-
ter studying lav Hebrew, and
theology in Massachusetts, was
licensed to preach in 1819. He
intended to go to the Armenians in
Turkey, but before he got around to
it he was persuaded to lead a group
of 25 people on their way to the
Choctaw Indian Nation.
