Ch ooga,
The o Raleigh arrived at the
seabuoy just outside the harbor at



3:42 a.m. She docked at 5 a.m. and
had her ballast out by 7; twenty
minutes later she began loading. In
four hours and 55 minu she had
completed loading, taking aboard
10: barrels - actual loading
averaged 20,420 barrels an hour.

At 12:28 p.m. the hoses we
disconnected, and seven minut
later the Raleigh cast off from the
dock. At 12:50 p.m. she cleared the
seabuoy outside, having established
a new turnaround record of nine
hours and eight minutes.

Together with personnel from the
Marine Department and from Re-
ceiving and Shipping, the officers
and crew of the Esso Raleigh could
last week lay claim to Aruba’s best
turnaround time.

Stadium Dedication Marked by Flag Presentation



The dedication ceremony of the new Sport Park stadium was a highlight
of the Queen’s Birthday Olympiad. R. E. Martin, right, carries the staff
of the new flag which will symbolize Lago Sport Park activities. Other
members of the Sport Park Committee who are helping to mount the
new flag on the stadium are O. Antonette and J. Wever. The flag was
designed for the Sport Park and presented to the Committee by Lago
President J. J. Horigan.

biggest sporting event, the Queen’s
Birthday Olympiad.”

"The results of starting the
Sport Park have been far greater
than the Company anticipated,” Mr.
Horigan pointed out. "The increase
in demand for use of these facilities
has led us to expand and develop
them. The biggest step forward was
the erection of this stadium we are





dedicating today. We think more
seating capacity is needed, and
what would be more effective in

making this sport park more useful
would be to install lights so that
it could be used at night.”

"While I am not in a position to
make any definite promises as to
when these things can be done,” he
continued, ”I believe that these im-
provements represent those on which
attention should be directed. Toward’
this end we hope to make as much
progress as funds will permit.”

Flag Presented

Following his speech, Mr. Horigan
presented to Chairman Huckleman a
flag that is to become the permanent
symbol of the Lago Sport Park.

Responding to Mr. Horigan’s
speech, Mr. Huckleman voiced the
appreciation of the Sport Park Re-
creation Committee to Lago for
providing the new stadium with its
increased facilities for athletes and

spectators. He echoed Mr. Horigan’s
hopes that lights could be installed
at the Park, thus making it possible
| to hold athletic events there in the
| evening.

After all the events were com-
pleted, Mr. Huckleman introduced

played by the Lago Sport Park in

A Goal Worth Shooting At

At the end of the first month (January) of the 1950
National Safety Council Contest, Lago was in fourth place in
the petroleum section. Its accident frequency rate (the number
of lost-time injuries per million man hours worked) was 1.50.
This is actually an improvement over Lago’s record last year,
when it led world-wide refineries in the contest with a record
of 1.64.

The fact that Lago’s record is now better than last year’s,
but that we are only in fourth place, proves one thing: other
refineries are working hard to improve their previous safety
records, and to replace Lago at the top of the safety ladder.

Even though our safety record now is a good one, it’s not
as good as those of three other companies competing against
us. To maintain our high standing as the safest refinery in
which to work, we can’t rest on our laurels. The fact that Lago
employees had few accidents in 1949 doesn’t necessarily mean
that we will also have an outstanding safety record in 1950.

Last year, as in other past years, Lago achieved an excellent
safety record. It’s to the benefit of each employee to do what
he can at his own job to see that we continue our splendid
record in safety.

At the end of 1950, let’s be where we were in safety at the
end of last year - at the top.

Un Doel pa 1950

Na fin di e promé luna (Januari) di Concurso di 1950 di
National Safety Council, Lago tabata number cuater den sec-
cion di companianan petrolero. Su tarifa di accidente pa un
millon ora di trabao tabata 1.50. Esaki ta un adelento, com-
para cu Lago su record di anja pasa, ora cu e tabata number
un entre refinerianan grandi di mundo cu un tarifa di 1.64.

Lago su record ta mihor cu anja pasa, pero toch e ta number
cuater; esey ta proba anto cu otro refinerianan ta trahando
duro pa nan tambe mehora nan recordnan anterior, y pa tuma
Lago su lugar na top.

Aunque nos record ta bon awor aki, e no ta mes bon cu e
otro tresnan cu ta nos dilanti. Pa mantene nos bon nomber
como trahadornan cu Seguridad,«nos no por contenta nos cu
loque nos a presta den pasado y para laga otro pasa nos di-
lanti. No, nos mester sigui lucha pa e record bira mihor cada
dia.

Anja pasa y e anjanan promé cu esey Lago a alcanza re-
cordnan magnifico di Seguridad. Ta na bienestar di empleado-
nan mes si nan sigui haci nan best pa nos mantene nos bunita
record di Seguridad.

Na fin di anja 1950, nos mester percura di ta para na e mes
lugar unda nos tabata para na fin di anja 1949, esta na top.
Laga nos tene e doel ey na bista, y laga nos tur lucha pa e bira
realidad.

Kites Can Be Dangerous

He is taking down the tail of a kite

of Lago Heights. If a heavy rain

Esso New York Breaks Record Here
By Loading in 5 Hours, 55 Minutes

The big supertanker Esso New York set a new record here in
loading time on April 24. The ship loaded 167,073.7 barrels of fuel
oil in five hours and fifty-five minutes. This high record was at the
rate of 28,236.21 barrels an hour - or nearly eight barrels every
second!

Credit for achieving this outstand-
ing record goes to the officers and
crew of the Esso New York. To-
gether with the men ashore, they
b ttered the previous loading record
for supertankers, held by the E
Montevideo. That record was
hours and 20 minutes.

The Esso New York, ninth of the
ten Esso supertankers to be built,
Ww on its maiden voyage out of
Newport, Virginia when it set the
record. On its first call at Aruba it
brought 191,9 barrels of crude
oil from Amua gest
single discharges ever made here).
After its second run from Amuay to
Aruba, the Esso New York set the
new loading record.

Esso Supertanker
Helps in Sea Rescue

The Esso Havana, one of the Esso
Shipping Company’s new supertan- |
kers which was launched last De-|
cember 16, has already participated |
in a rescue at sea. |

On her second yoyage, enroute |
from Corpus Christi, Texas, to New |
York, the crew of the big tanker
sighted a small yacht in distress off
the east coast of Florida la: rch
29





]
Aboard were three men includi
C. H. Briley, Jr., of Nashville, Tenn
who had chartered the vessel for
fishing trip.

Radioing the U.S. Coast Guard,
Captain Guy A. Campbell, the Esso
Havana’s Master, had the tanker
stand by for more than three hours
until a Coast Guard cutter arrived
to take the fishing yacht in tow.

The yacht had been struck by a
heavy squall on an early mornin;
un between the Bahamas and Miami,
Florida. With her radio out, compass
damaged, and rudder controls snap-





ped, the yacht wallowed out of
control in heavy seas.
High winds steadily drove the

, disabled craft northeast out of the
travelled fishing lanes in an area
where a year ago, on a similar trip,
two Nashville men had disappeared
without a trace. In the late after-
noon, after the yacht had drifted six
hours, the Esso Hayana appeared
on the horizon. Observers aboard the
tanker sighted the yacht and in
response to frantic signals from the





smaller ship, the Esso Havana
turned from her course to come to
her aid.

Said Mr. Briley, who wrote to

express his appreciation of the Esso
Havana’s part in the rescue, "Now
that it is all over, I assure you that
the "Queen Mary”, on her maiden
run, could not have looked any better
to me than your tanker, the Esso
Havana, when she changed her
course and stood by.”

The Family Doctor

Last year the Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) sponsored the weekly broad-
casts of the New York Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra. Intermission talks were
given by the noted music critic, Deema Taylor. The story below is adapted from
his talk on Jersey Standard’s medical activities.)

Many of us think with a good deal of affection of the family
doctor in our neighborhood. On call 24 hours a day, every day, you
wonder how he ever finds time to eat and sleep or spend an evening
with his family.

Yet, despite this, he somehow manages to keep his sense of values
— so that when he enters a home, he
brings with him an atmosphere of
security, an assurance that all will
|be well. Not content with curing us
| when we are sick, the family doctor
tries to keep us well through pre-
yeative medicine. And the more in-

re ihe ee ee ee Dr. Kenneth R. Fourcher looks

quite a bit like the late "Slim” Sum-
merville of the movies. He is tall,
rather loose-joined, the sort of man
you’d call “tweedy.” Twenty-one
years ago, just out of the Ge ia
Medical School, young Doctor Four-
cher faced a problem. He had two

in fisheries, has recently been| somehow the two didn’t seem

exactly compatible. Normal procedure
for a young doctor calls for a period
of internship in a hospital, and then
the time-honored ritual of hanging
up a shingle.

But Dr. Fourcher knew that, for
him, hanging up a_ shingle meant
hanging up one of his dreams. He
wanted travel and adventure. So, his
internship over, he took a position
as resident physician in a hospital
in Panama.

The Panama experience merely
whetted his appetite for further
travel and adventure. One evening

equipped with a Bendix supersonic
depth recorder. With this recorder,
the Government boat is now
engaged in locating fishing banks,
recording their depths, and estimat-
ing their size. All this information
will be plotted on permanent charts
for future reference by fishermen
and other interested persons.

Newest Finger Pier



Dr. Fourcher met the director of
Jersey Standard’s Medical Depart-
ment.
Goes to Peru

The young doctor talked to the
yider man about his plans, his
umbitions and, well, in a matter of
weeks, Dr. Kenneth Fourcher was
resident physician for a Jersey

standard affiliate operating in Peru.

t was in Peru that Dr. Fourcher
‘ound his real medical interest: the
important specialties of tropical and
yreventive medicine.

As a result of this work, he was
transferred to New York, central
headquarters for all Jersey Stan-
dard’s medical operations. Here he
joined eleven other specialists — men
sz of the same wide experience as his
own — to advise and consult with
ta the 200 other doctors in the service
of the Jersey Standard employees
around the world.

But Dr. Fourcher is by means

nailed to a desk. At the New York
headquarters of Jersey Standard his
yearnings for travel have been sa-
tisfied to the tune of some 100,000
miles to date.
In headquarters, and in the field,
r. Fourcher and his colleagues are
| pioneering a new kind of medicine
|— constructive medicine — a method
!of battling disease by searching for
it in its early stages and bringing it
under control before it gets out of
hand.

These Jersey Standard doctors are
taking modern science into some of
the unhealthiest and most remote
regions of the world, places that are
most in need of it. By applying the
principles of present day clinical
medicine, they are creating habitable
regions where men can live and work
in greater safety than ever before.

Lago Meets CPIM

In Annual Tourney

The top sporting event of the year
between I and CPIM in Cura-
will place here late this
month. At that time teams from the
two refineries will compete for an-
nual honors in cricket, table tennis,
and billiards.

At stake will be the Crown Life
Trophy, which will become the per-
manent possession of the team which
first wins three of the annual tour-
naments. In addition, Lago will
provide other awards to the winners.

This will be the fourth annual
meeting between Lago and CPIM;
last year’s tourney, held in Curagao,
resulted in a draw.

The CPIM players are due to ar-
rive in Aruba on May 26, and play
will go on on the 27th, 28th, and
29th. Cricket will be played at the
Lago Sport Park, and table tennis
and billiards at the Lago Club.

CPIM and Lago sponsor these an-
nual competitions, and the Lago
Sport Park Recreation Committee is
handling arrangements for this
year’s tourney.

Special entertainment is planned
during the stay of the CPIM team.

Barbados To Sell Furniture

A plan to sell Barbadian furniture
and handicrafts in the United States
is being prepared by Ronal Tree, a
former Conservative member of the
British Parliament now living in
Barbados. Purpose of the scheme is
threefold: to encourage craftman-
ship of a high quality, while at the
ame time helping to relieve un-
employment; to start a minor in-
dustry as a subsidiary to that of
sugar; and to earn dollars.

If the plan is successful, it is pro-
posed to start a vocational school.
A small company is being formed
for the purpose of exporting such
handicrafts as baskets, tortoise-shell
goods, and furniture to the U.S. It
is expected that at first the export
of furniture will be only of small
pieces, such as clock cases, cigarette
boxes, and hanging china cabinets.

The new company plans to include
the British island of Dominica in its |
scheme, and later to introduce pro-
ducts of other West Indian islands.

The Little Girl & the Tiger

Once upon a time a woman and
her daughter lived in a little house
deep in the woods. The mother had
to leave her daughter behind ev ry
day when she went to her work in
the town. An old mean tiger lived
nearby and he had often looked with
hungry eyes at the pretty little girl.
So the mother had warned her little
daughter never, never, never to open
the door unless she first heard her
mother’s voice singing this song:

Washingkobi, dicolareina
Bolbebing napartras
Galité.

So every evening, when the mother
came back from work, she would sing
this little song, and the girl would
swing the door wide open. The tiger
soon found out about this and de-
cided to learn the song. He hung
around and listened and after three
days he went to the door and sang:

Kobiwashing, lareinadico
Bibbledebong, napatras
Liberté.

The little girl broke into laughter,
for the tiger had all the words mixed
up - she just knew it was not her
mother and she kept the door well-
locked.

The tiger hung around some more,
making sure he got the words
straight, and after three days he
knocked on the door and sang again.
But his voice was loud and gruff,
and the little girl just knew it
couldn’t be her mother. So she just
laughed at him and kept the door
locked tightly.

Then the tiger walked over to the
blacksmith’s and asked him to flatten
his tongue a little bit with his
hammer - this would make his voice
sound just like a lady’s, he thought.
But the blacksmith knew all about
this mean tiger, and that he wanted
to eat the little girl. So he decided
to fix the tiger up once and for all.

"Sure, I’ll fix it up for you,” the
blacksmith said with a sly grin, ”but
you'll have to lie very still. In fact,
maybe I’d better tie your hind legs
with this chain here, or you might
start kicking and spoil the whole
operation.”

The tiger agreed, so the black-
smith selected the heaviest iron chain
he could find and tied the tiger down
so tight that he could hardly move.
Then he picked up a huge nail and
hid it behind his back.

”This isn’t going to hurt a bit,”
tle blacksmith told the tiger, "just
stick your tongue out.”

The tiger did as he was told, and
the blacksmith drove the nail through
his tongue and right on through the
wall, so that the tiger was nailed
securely to the wall. The tiger roared
furiously, but he couldn’t pull himself
out of this jam.

The blacksmith hurriedly sent a
message to the king, who immedia-
tely sent out six soldiers to dispose
of the mean old tiger.

And from that day on, the woman
and her pretty little daughter
nothing to worry about - but the
little girl still liked the song so well
that her mother sang it to her every
evening just the same when she
came home.

Surinam's Public Works

The Government of Surinam
cently announced its public works
program for this year. It amounts
|to a total expenditure of just over
Fis. 5,000,000.
| Of this sum, about a third is to
| be devoted to continuing the con-
struction of workers’ houses, and a
| further amount is to be set aside
| for making new roads and con-
struction of sewage systems. Houses
| and offices for the police, a new
prison in Paramaribo, and an ex-
tension of the District Court build-
ing in the capital also appear in
| the estimates.

Other major works to be under-
taken: new schools, extension of
| existing ones, storehouses for rice,
health centers, nurses’ homes, ex-
tension of the hospital at Marga-
rethenburg, improvement of build-
ings at the government leprosarium,
completion of the telephone com-
pany’s office at Paramaribo, and
construction of new bridges.

pointed out that sports activities
brought great benefits to both the
individual and to the community.
"I think one of the gre t con-
tributions made by athletics is in the
good it does for a community’s
youth,” Mr. Griffin said. "By offer-
ing him the opportunity of becoming
a part of an athletic team, sports
give a boy the chance to join with

| other youths in spending his excess

energy in a worthwhile and healthful
activity.”

It was for this reason, Mr. Griffin
pointed out, that the annual Queen’s
Birthday Olympiads emphasized var-
ious activities for young athletes.

Mr. Griffin mentioned that, dur-
ten years that the Lago
Sport Park had been in operation,
thousands of players had performed
there - and many thousands more
had been there to see them.

"I think that all of us who have
participated in sports activities here
- either as players or spectators -
can feel proud of the part we’ve
played in the development and
growth of sports in Aruba,” Mr.
Griffin said.

Vote of thanks

Before closing, Mr. Griffin paid
tribute to the members of the Lago
Committee
and to all others who helped them
in putting on the Olympiad. A big
vote of thanks went to them, he
said, not just for their work in
putting on the Olympiad, but be-
cause of the hard work they do
throughout the year in running a
full program of events at the Sport
Park.

To conclude the program, Mr.
Huckleman introduced Public Relat-
ions Director B. Teagle, who pre-
sented the trophies to the winning
athletes. Before making the presen-
tations, Mr. Teagle, who had just
returned from the States, express-
ed his pleasure at being present at
the biggest Olympiad jy It was
his hope that sports activities at the
Lago Sport Park would continue to
grow, becoming bigger and _ better
i y s ahead.

For successfully running off
largest Olympiad yet, much
must go to the members of the Lago
Sport Park Recreation Committee
and to the y men who ted
them. E. J. leman is chairman
of the Committee, J. Wever is vice-
chairman, and R. E. Martin, secre-
tary - others on the group are A. H.

Caribe Beats Lago,
Harms Gives No Hits

Lionel Harms pitched a no-hit, no
run game May 1 as the Caribe base-
ball team defeated the Lago Colony
sting Harms in

Roy, who struck out the last batter
to shut out the Colony club.

With two men out in the last
inning, Pitcher Harms took over the
catching duties when the regular
catcher was hurt. His brother took
over the pitching chores and fanned
the last batter, thus keeping the no-
hitter in the family.

Magazines Appreciated

The people in Aruba who recently
contributed magazines and _ other
reading material to the men aboard

commander for their kind gesture.
In a cable to Acting Lt. Governor
H. A. Hessling, the commander of

the reading material was appreciat-
ed by the men aboard his ship.

Stadium Dedication Marked by Flag Presentation



The dedication ceremony of the new Sport Park stadium was a highlight
of the Queen’s Birthday Olympiad. R. E. Martin, right, carries the staff
of the new flag which will symbolize Lago Sport Park activities. Other
members of the Sport Park Committee who are helping to mount the

"The results of starting the
Sport Park have been far greater
than the Company anticipated,” Mr.
Horigan pointed out. "The increase
in demand for use of these facilities
has led us to expand and develop
them. The biggest step forward was
the erection of this stadium we are





dedicating today. We think more
seating capacity is needed, and
what would be more effective in

making this sport park more useful
would be to install lights so that
it could be used at night.”

"While I am not in a position to
make any definite promises as to
when these things can be done,” he
continued, ”I believe that these im-
provements represent those on which
attention should be directed. Toward’
this end we hope to make as much
progress as funds will permit.”

Flag Presented

Following his speech, Mr. Horigan
presented to Chairman Huckleman a
flag that is to become the permanent
symbol of the Lago Sport Park.

Responding to Mr. Horigan’s
speech, Mr. Huckleman voiced the
appreciation of the Sport Park Re-
creation Committee to Lago for
providing the new stadium with its
increased facilities for athletes and

spectators. He echoed Mr. Horigan’s

A Goal Worth Shooting At

At the end of the first month (January) of the 1950
National Safety Council Contest, Lago was in fourth place in
the petroleum section. Its accident frequency rate (the number
of lost-time injuries per million man hours worked) was 1.50.
This is actually an improvement over Lago’s record last year,
when it led world-wide refineries in the contest with a record
of 1.64.

The fact that Lago’s record is now better than last year’s,
but that we are only in fourth place, proves one thing: other
refineries are working hard to improve their previous safety
records, and to replace Lago at the top of the safety ladder.

Even though our safety record now is a good one, it’s not
as good as those of three other companies competing against
us. To maintain our high standing as the safest refinery in
which to work, we can’t rest on our laurels. The fact that Lago
employees had few accidents in 1949 doesn’t necessarily mean
that we will also have an outstanding safety record in 1950.

Last year, as in other past years, Lago achieved an excellent
safety record. It’s to the benefit of each employee to do what
he can at his own job to see that we continue our splendid
record in safety.

At the end of 1950, let’s be where we were in safety at the
end of last year - at the top.

Un Doel pa 1950

Na fin di e promé luna (Januari) di Concurso di 1950 di
National Safety Council, Lago tabata number cuater den sec-
cion di companianan petrolero. Su tarifa di accidente pa un
millon ora di trabao tabata 1.50. Esaki ta un adelento, com-
para cu Lago su record di anja pasa, ora cu e tabata number
un entre refinerianan grandi di mundo cu un tarifa di 1.64.

Lago su record ta mihor cu anja pasa, pero toch e ta number
cuater; esey ta proba anto cu otro refinerianan ta trahando
duro pa nan tambe mehora nan recordnan anterior, y pa tuma
Lago su lugar na top.

Aunque nos record ta bon awor aki, e no ta mes bon cu e
otro tresnan cu ta nos dilanti. Pa mantene nos bon nomber

Kites Can Be Dangerous

Kite flying is good sport, but it can

left by boys who didn’t know this.
He is taking down the tail of a kite

of Lago Heights. If a heavy rain
were to soak the tail, it would be a
good conductor between the high-

which would be a hazard as they

Esso New York Breaks Record Here
By Loading in 5 Hours, 55 Minutes

The big supertanker Esso New York set a new record here in
loading time on April 24. The ship loaded 167,073.7 barrels of fuel
oil in five hours and fifty-five minutes. This high record was at the
rate of 28,236.21 barrels an hour - or nearly eight barrels every
second!

Credit for achieving this outstand-
ing record goes to the officers and
crew of the Esso New York. To-
gether with the men ashore, they
b ttered the previous loading record
for supertankers, held by the E
Montevideo. That record was
hours and 20 minutes.

The Esso New York, ninth of the
ten Esso supertankers to be built,
Ww on its maiden voyage out of
Newport, Virginia when it set the
record. On its first call at Aruba it
brought 191,9 barrels of crude
oil from Amua gest
single discharges ever made here).
After its second run from Amuay to
Aruba, the Esso New York set the
new loading record.

The ship left Aruba for New
York City where it was to play h

good luck to the Esso New York
and hopes that its fine record is
only a preliminary to further re-
cords to be achieved on future
voyages.

Esso Supertanker
Helps in Sea Rescue

The Esso Havana, one of the Esso
Shipping Company’s new supertan- |
kers which was launched last De-|
cember 16, has already participated |
in a rescue at sea. |

On her second yoyage, enroute |
from Corpus Christi, Texas, to New |
York, the crew of the big tanker
sighted a small yacht in distress off
the east coast of Florida la: rch
29





]
Aboard were three men includi
C. H. Briley, Jr., of Nashville, Tenn
who had chartered the vessel for
fishing trip.

Radioing the U.S. Coast Guard,
Captain Guy A. Campbell, the Esso
Havana’s Master, had the tanker
stand by for more than three hours
until a Coast Guard cutter arrived
to take the fishing yacht in tow.

The yacht had been struck by a
heavy squall on an early mornin;
un between the Bahamas and Miami,
Florida. With her radio out, compass
damaged, and rudder controls snap-





ped, the yacht wallowed out of
control in heavy seas.
High winds steadily drove the

, disabled craft northeast out of the
travelled fishing lanes in an area
where a year ago, on a similar trip,
two Nashville men had disappeared
without a trace. In the late after-
noon, after the yacht had drifted six
hours, the Esso Hayana appeared
on the horizon. Observers aboard the
tanker sighted the yacht and in
response to frantic signals from the





smaller ship, the Esso Havana
turned from her course to come to
her aid.

Said Mr. Briley, who wrote to

express his appreciation of the Esso
Havana’s part in the rescue, "Now
that it is all over, I assure you that
the "Queen Mary”, on her maiden
run, could not have looked any better
to me than your tanker, the Esso
Havana, when she changed her
course and stood by.”

FLast Pile Driven for



An important day for Aruba and Lago. The last pile of the big new No. 2
Finger Pier is driven, marking a yital point in the constraction of the
pier. Two Netherlands Harbor Works men manipulate the ropes which D

control the hammer of the pile driver, ”Aruba”.

Shand Perrier, fireman of the tug ”Colorado Point”, was married to Miss

Alard Benedrick Fermin on April 13 at Santa Cruz. Here the happy

couple is shown with members of the wedding party and friends at the
reception in Santa Cruz.



The Family Doctor

Last year the Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) sponsored the weekly broad-
casts of the New York Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra. Intermission talks were
given by the noted music critic, Deema Taylor. The story below is adapted from
his talk on Jersey Standard’s medical activities.)

Many of us think with a good deal of affection of the family
doctor in our neighborhood. On call 24 hours a day, every day, you
wonder how he ever finds time to eat and sleep or spend an evening
with his family.

Yet, despite this, he somehow manages to keep his sense of values
— so that when he enters a home, he
brings with him an atmosphere of
security, an assurance that all will
|be well. Not content with curing us
| when we are sick, the family doctor
tries to keep us well through pre-
yeative medicine. And the more in-

quite a bit like the late "Slim” Sum-
merville of the movies. He is tall,
rather loose-joined, the sort of man

exactly compatible. Normal procedure
for a young doctor calls for a period
of internship in a hospital, and then
the time-honored ritual of hanging
up a shingle.

But Dr. Fourcher knew that, for
him, hanging up a_ shingle meant
hanging up one of his dreams. He
wanted travel and adventure. So, his
internship over, he took a position
as resident physician in a hospital
in Panama.

The Panama experience merely
whetted his appetite for further
travel and adventure. One evening

equipped with a Bendix supersonic
depth recorder. With this recorder,
the Government boat is now
engaged in locating fishing banks,
recording their depths, and estimat-
ing their size. All this information
will be plotted on permanent charts
for future reference by fishermen
and other interested persons.

Newest Finger Pier



Dr. Fourcher met the director of
Jersey Standard’s Medical Depart-
ment.
Goes to Peru

The young doctor talked to the
yider man about his plans, his
umbitions and, well, in a matter of
weeks, Dr. Kenneth Fourcher was
resident physician for a Jersey

standard affiliate operating in Peru.

t was in Peru that Dr. Fourcher
‘ound his real medical interest: the
important specialties of tropical and
yreventive medicine.

As a result of this work, he was
transferred to New York, central
headquarters for all Jersey Stan-
dard’s medical operations. Here he
joined eleven other specialists — men
sz of the same wide experience as his
own — to advise and consult with
ta the 200 other doctors in the service
of the Jersey Standard employees
around the world.

But Dr. Fourcher is by means

nailed to a desk. At the New York
headquarters of Jersey Standard his
yearnings for travel have been sa-
tisfied to the tune of some 100,000
miles to date.
In headquarters, and in the field,
r. Fourcher and his colleagues are
| pioneering a new kind of medicine
|— constructive medicine — a method
!of battling disease by searching for
it in its early stages and bringing it
under control before it gets out of
hand.

These Jersey Standard doctors are
taking modern science into some of
the unhealthiest and most remote
regions of the world, places that are
most in need of it. By applying the
principles of present day clinical
medicine, they are creating habitable
regions where men can live and work
in greater safety than ever before.

Lago Meets CPIM

In Annual Tourney

The top sporting event of the year
between I and CPIM in Cura-
will place here late this
month. At that time teams from the
two refineries will compete for an-
nual honors in cricket, table tennis,
and billiards.

At stake will be the Crown Life
Trophy, which will become the per-
manent possession of the team which
first wins three of the annual tour-
naments. In addition, Lago will
provide other awards to the winners.

This will be the fourth annual
meeting between Lago and CPIM;
last year’s tourney, held in Curagao,
resulted in a draw.

The CPIM players are due to ar-
rive in Aruba on May 26, and play
will go on on the 27th, 28th, and
29th. Cricket will be played at the
Lago Sport Park, and table tennis
and billiards at the Lago Club.

CPIM and Lago sponsor these an-
nual competitions, and the Lago
Sport Park Recreation Committee is
handling arrangements for this
year’s tourney.

Special entertainment is planned
during the stay of the CPIM team.

Barbados To Sell Furniture

A plan to sell Barbadian furniture
and handicrafts in the United States
is being prepared by Ronal Tree, a
former Conservative member of the
British Parliament now living in
Barbados. Purpose of the scheme is
threefold: to encourage craftman-
ship of a high quality, while at the
ame time helping to relieve un-
employment; to start a minor in-
dustry as a subsidiary to that of
sugar; and to earn dollars.

If the plan is successful, it is pro-
posed to start a vocational school.
A small company is being formed
for the purpose of exporting such
handicrafts as baskets, tortoise-shell
goods, and furniture to the U.S. It
is expected that at first the export
of furniture will be only of small
pieces, such as clock cases, cigarette
boxes, and hanging china cabinets.

The new company plans to include
the British island of Dominica in its |
scheme, and later to introduce pro-
ducts of other West Indian islands.

The Little Girl & the Tiger

Once upon a time a woman and
her daughter lived in a little house
deep in the woods. The mother had
to leave her daughter behind ev ry
day when she went to her work in
the town. An old mean tiger lived
nearby and he had often looked with
hungry eyes at the pretty little girl.
So the mother had warned her little
daughter never, never, never to open
the door unless she first heard her
mother’s voice singing this song:

Washingkobi, dicolareina
Bolbebing napartras
Galité.

So every evening, when the mother
came back from work, she would sing
this little song, and the girl would
swing the door wide open. The tiger
soon found out about this and de-
cided to learn the song. He hung
around and listened and after three
days he went to the door and sang:

Kobiwashing, lareinadico
Bibbledebong, napatras
Liberté.

The little girl broke into laughter,
for the tiger had all the words mixed
up - she just knew it was not her
mother and she kept the door well-
locked.

The tiger hung around some more,
making sure he got the words
straight, and after three days he
knocked on the door and sang again.
But his voice was loud and gruff,
and the little girl just knew it
couldn’t be her mother. So she just
laughed at him and kept the door
locked tightly.

Then the tiger walked over to the
blacksmith’s and asked him to flatten
his tongue a little bit with his
hammer - this would make his voice
sound just like a lady’s, he thought.
But the blacksmith knew all about
this mean tiger, and that he wanted
to eat the little girl. So he decided
to fix the tiger up once and for all.

"Sure, I’ll fix it up for you,” the
blacksmith said with a sly grin, ”but
you'll have to lie very still. In fact,
maybe I’d better tie your hind legs
with this chain here, or you might
start kicking and spoil the whole
operation.”

The tiger agreed, so the black-
smith selected the heaviest iron chain
he could find and tied the tiger down
so tight that he could hardly move.
Then he picked up a huge nail and
hid it behind his back.

”This isn’t going to hurt a bit,”
tle blacksmith told the tiger, "just
stick your tongue out.”

The tiger did as he was told, and
the blacksmith drove the nail through
his tongue and right on through the
wall, so that the tiger was nailed
securely to the wall. The tiger roared
furiously, but he couldn’t pull himself
out of this jam.

The blacksmith hurriedly sent a
message to the king, who immedia-
tely sent out six soldiers to dispose
of the mean old tiger.

And from that day on, the woman
and her pretty little daughter
nothing to worry about - but the
little girl still liked the song so well
that her mother sang it to her every
evening just the same when she
came home.

Surinam's Public Works

The Government of Surinam
cently announced its public works
program for this year. It amounts
|to a total expenditure of just over
Fis. 5,000,000.
| Of this sum, about a third is to
| be devoted to continuing the con-
struction of workers’ houses, and a
| further amount is to be set aside
| for making new roads and con-
struction of sewage systems. Houses
| and offices for the police, a new
prison in Paramaribo, and an ex-
tension of the District Court build-
ing in the capital also appear in
| the estimates.

Other major works to be under-
taken: new schools, extension of
| existing ones, storehouses for rice,
health centers, nurses’ homes, ex-
tension of the hospital at Marga-
rethenburg, improvement of build-
ings at the government leprosarium,
completion of the telephone com-
pany’s office at Paramaribo, and
construction of new bridges.

pointed out that sports activities
brought great benefits to both the
individual and to the community.
"I think one of the gre t con-
tributions made by athletics is in the
good it does for a community’s
youth,” Mr. Griffin said. "By offer-
ing him the opportunity of becoming
a part of an athletic team, sports
give a boy the chance to join with

| other youths in spending his excess

energy in a worthwhile and healthful
activity.”

It was for this reason, Mr. Griffin
pointed out, that the annual Queen’s
Birthday Olympiads emphasized var-
ious activities for young athletes.

Mr. Griffin mentioned that, dur-
ten years that the Lago
Sport Park had been in operation,
thousands of players had performed
there - and many thousands more
had been there to see them.

"I think that all of us who have
participated in sports activities here
- either as players or spectators -
can feel proud of the part we’ve
played in the development and
growth of sports in Aruba,” Mr.
Griffin said.

Vote of thanks

Before closing, Mr. Griffin paid
tribute to the members of the Lago
Committee
and to all others who helped them
in putting on the Olympiad. A big
vote of thanks went to them, he
said, not just for their work in
putting on the Olympiad, but be-
cause of the hard work they do
throughout the year in running a
full program of events at the Sport
Park.

To conclude the program, Mr.
Huckleman introduced Public Relat-
ions Director B. Teagle, who pre-
sented the trophies to the winning
athletes. Before making the presen-
tations, Mr. Teagle, who had just
returned from the States, express-
ed his pleasure at being present at
the biggest Olympiad jy It was
his hope that sports activities at the
Lago Sport Park would continue to
grow, becoming bigger and _ better
i y s ahead.

For successfully running off
largest Olympiad yet, much
must go to the members of the Lago
Sport Park Recreation Committee
and to the y men who ted
them. E. J. leman is chairman
of the Committee, J. Wever is vice-
chairman, and R. E. Martin, secre-
tary - others on the group are A. H.
