Nominating Election Will Be
sune 12-13-14; Final 26-27-28

The election of 38 district representatives, final step in establishing
the new employee representation plan, will take place this month. The
nominating election is scheduled for June 12-13-14, and the final
election for June 26-27-28.

Naming district representatives has been awaiting the completion
of the Working Agreement that gives them a basis to operate from;
this work is in its final stages, and the full new plan is expected to
be in operation late this month. This move will round out the plan
that set up the major representative groups for siaff and regular
employees, including Lago Employee Council, Commissary Advisory
Committee, Special Problems Advisory Commitiee, and the Lago Sport
Park Recreation Committee.

The district representative



system is the machinery through which

| the grievance procedure works, A district representative will represent

any eligible employee in his district, at the employee’s request, in the
handling of grievances that have to do with rates of pay, wages, hours
of employment, or working conditions.

If a problem has not been solved through review with the employee's
supervisor, a district representative may carry it to higher levels of
supervision. If a solution has not been found, the problem may then
be considered successively by a divisional conference and a depart-
mental conference. Failing a satisfactory settlement, the Lago
Employee Council may then consider the problem at the representa-
tive’s request. If it wishes, the Council may review the case succes-
sively with the Company representatives, then with the general
manager, and with the president of the company.

Election of the district represen-



tatives will be condueted by a Board . —

Think Before You Vote

Bailoting will be held this month for election of the 38 district
representatives to handle grievance cases of employees through-
out the refinery. The work of these 38 men will be a vital part
of the employee representation system at Lago. For that reason,
much thought and care should be given to their selection.

These 38 men will be available to help you — therefore, they
should be men whom you have confidence in, men whose judg-
ment you respect.

3efore voting, consideration should be given to the general
qualities that make up a good district representative. First, he
should be a person who has a deep interest in the welfare of his
fellow employees. He should be someone whose wisdom and
judgment you trust, someone you feel like going to when you
want help or advice. If he’s a good representative, he will have
a devotion to his constituents and their problems — he'll be |
ready to help you whenever he’s called on. Finally, he should |
have the ability to explore all sides of a problem.

Just as important are the specific characteristics that should
be considered when electing your representative. These include |
his intelligence, qualities of leadership, job experience, years of |
Company service, ability to talk and think, knowledge of Com-
pany policy, and his ability to get along with other people.

The district representative has a great deal of responsibility.
As the voter who selects him, you have as great a responsibility |
to see that you choose the best man for the job. Your repre-
sentative system is no better than the men who represent you.
For that reason, you should choose wisely and well.

Pensa Promé cu bo Vota

E luna aki eleccion lo tuma lugar pa saka e 38 representante-
nan di district pa trata quehonan di empleadonan den henter re-
fineria. Trabao di e 38 hombernan aki ta un parti sumamente

di Mei, e dia no tabata tristo; pa-
sobra aunque el a pasa e dia den
Hospitaal San Pedro na Oranjestad,
su amigonan, miembronan di Lions
Club y nan seforanan a celebra su
anja na Hospitaal mes, cu regalo na

Esaki no tabata promé biaha cu
Lions Club su miembronan a bishita
Irene y contenté durante e anjanan
cu eé tin malo. Ya ta dos anja cu nan
ta interesd den dje, foi tempo cu
nan a tende di su desgracia. For di
e tempo ey e miembronan y nan
senoranan a bishité hopi bez na su



cas y na hospitaal, hibando regalo-
nan pe, y mustrando nan interes den
die.

Na November di anja 1948 nan a
tende kico a pasa Irene y nan a di-
eidi di mira si nan por a duné yu-
danza. Irene a hiba un desgracia
cuater anja pasa, tempo cu e taba-
tin siete anja. Hungando den un ma-
ta, el a cai abao, corta su garganta
riba un bleki; e corta tabata na un
lugar masha delicado na e pipa pa
cual e ta hala rosea,

Mester a hiba Irene hospitaal un-
bez y mester a habri su stoma pa
alimenté, pasobra e no por a guli pa
via cu e cuminda por pasa den e
corta bai den su pulmon. Despues di
hopi siman Irene a bai cas, pero e
no por a come, sino pa e tubo cu
nan a pone na su stoma. Solamente
un cierto cantidad di operacion ma-
sha delicado lo por curé

Irene su mama no tabata mucho
voor pa su jioe worde opera, y hopi
luna largo e mucha su condicion a
keda mescos. Despues, na fin di 1948,
miembronan di Lions Club a bin pa-
pia cu e mama, y porfin nan a com-
bencé cu ta bon pa e mucha worde
opera. Irene a pasa pa tres opera-
cion caba y pronto lo e pasa pa di
cuater; tur e tres operacionnan a
duna bon resultado.

Irene, naturalmente, ta masha
contento cu Lions Club ta tuma tan-
to interes den dje, y cu nan ta yudé
bira bon. Pero Lions Club mes tam-
be ta masha contento, pues esaki ta
un prueba pa nan cu nan ta di ser-











vicio pa e comunidad den cual nan
ta biba. Den caso di Irene, Lions
Club no a contribui cu placa, aun-

que cu nan a cumpra regalonan pe
de bez en cuando. El ta haya trata-
miento médico di Gobierno y loque
Lions Club a haci ta di tuma interes
pa el a haya e atencion médico cu e
tabatin mester.

Un caso parecido ta esun di un
mucha-homber cu a nace cu pia man-
earon; e Club a percura pe haya e
atencion necesario y despues di un
operacion e mucha ta hopi mihor.

Stricken Girl Sees New Hope
As Lions Continue to Bring Joy



Wives of members of the Aruba Lions Club bring cheer and gifts to

little Irene Jacobs on her 12th birthday. Irene is seen

ated in San



Pedro Hospital, with her mother standing behind her. At right is Hans
Muller, retiring president of the Lions Club.

Seforanan di miembronan di Lions Club ta trece regalo y legria na Irene
Jacobs na Hospitaal San Pedro, dia cu Irene a haci 12 anja.

To most children, observing their
birthday in a hospital would be a
pretty unhappy occasion. But not to
little Irene Jacobs, who spent her
12th birthday May 25 in San Pedro
Hospital. For on that day her friends
- and their wives - from the Aruba

Lions Club descended on her with
gifts and greetings, as well as a
huge birthday cake complete with

lighted candles.

Among her presents were a neck
lace with cross, bracelet, a new dress,
ring, and a dozen other gifts - all
from the Aruba Lions Club.

Nor was this the first occasion
where Club members had _ visited
Irene and cheered her up during the
long period she’s been ill. They be-
came interested in her almost two
years ago, when they first heard of
her plight. Since then, they and their
wives have paid her numerous visits
at home and in the hospital, bring-
ing her gifts and good cheer. Most
of all, they’ve helped bring her the
courage and friendship she needs to
travel down the long road to her
recovery.

The Lions Club’s interest in Irene
is special in a way - their associa-
tion with her has been such a long
one that they now look on her as a

special friend of long standing. In
another way, though, their concern
with her isn’t out of the ordinary -
she’s just one of the many people
whom they, as members of a service
organization, have helped.

The Lions’ interest in Irene
back to November 1948. That
when they first heard of her,
decided to find out if she
their help.

But Irene’s story really goes back
over four years, when she was seven
years old. While playing in a tree,
she fell off a limb and cut her
throat on a sharp can lying on the
ground. The cut was located on a
ve delicate spot on her windpipe
tube leading to her stomach.

Irene was taken to the hospital,
where it was necessary to make an
opening to her stomach so she could

fed. This was necessary since
food coming out of the windpipe
might have gotten into her lungs

and caused pneumonia. After several
weeks in the hospital, Irene went
home, still unable to pass food down
her throat. Only a series of delicate
operations would ever cure her con-
dition.

Lions Help

Irene’s mother was reluctant to
have her undergo any further opera-
tions, and for many months the
child’s condition remained the same.
Then, late in 1948, the Lions Club
heard of the case, and started in-
vestigating it. Members of the Club
talked with the little girl’s mother,
ying to convince her of the des
ability of further operations. They







discussed her ¢: with Dr. A.

Schlachter, of Oranjestad. When
Dr. Schlachter was doubtful that
the operations could be performed

here, the Lions began raising money
to send Irene to the famed Johns
Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,
Maryland.

Dr. Schlachter, who was himself
very interested in her case, wrote
to the Army Medical Library in
Washington, D.C., which provides
Tree medical services to doctors any-
where. He requested further in-
formation on her type of case, and
the Library sent it to him on micro-
film. Additional study of Irene’s
case convinced Dr. Schlachter that
the operation could be performed in
Aruba.

After many attempts at persua-
sion, members of the Lions Club
succeeded in convincing her mother
of the desirability of starting the
series of operations on the girl. Be-
enuse of the delicate adjustments
that had to be made in her throat,
it was realized from the beginning
that a series of operations would be
necessa to cure her. She has now
undergone three operations, all per-
formed by Dr. Schlachter, and will
soon have another. Each has result-
ed in her improvement.

Irene, naturally, is happy that the
Lions Club took an interest in her,
and that it’s helping her get well.
Even more cheered by her case,
though, are the Lions themselves.
Irene is proof to them that they
are performing a valuable service to
the community in which they live.
In the case of Irene, the Lions Club
made no specific outlay of money -


















although they have provided her
with numerous gifts. She was en-
titled to medical care by the Goy-





In Time

The woman was the Begum Lia-
quat Ali, wife of the prime minister

just like



any American housewife -
and that included selecting her own
purchases from the shelves of a



market.

Other Club Projects

In a_ similar case. ve also
taken a great interest in a small
boy with club feet. The Club was in-
strumental in seeing that he got the
attention he needed. After one opera-
tion, he is consider improved.

Another medical ease concerned a
man with cataracts on his eyes. He
lacked the money for an operation,
so the Lions Club provided it.

A woman from St. Lucia, and a
shipwrecked Dominican sailor will
never forget the help given them by
Aruba’s Lions. Both were destitute
until the Lions heard about them -
both were provided with money by
the Lions to get them back to their
homes.

Since
January














the Club was chartered on
31, 1948, it has proved its
worth rvice organization in a
number of ways. Each year it prov-
ides money for a Christmas party
children (in 1948 the Club gave 250
bags of candy, eight footballs to
Aruba’s children - last year it gave
Ils. 300 to be spent at four schools).
At the time of the earthquake in
Ecuador, the Club here sent $100 to
the Lions Club in Quito to be used













for the earthquake victims; a few
days later it sent F 800 for the
same purpose. Aruba’s Lions bought



cigarettes to go to Dutch soldiers in
the East Indies, and they made a
contribution to the cancer fund.
Eve year the Lions honor the
three leading graduates from three
Aruban schools; each student re-





ceives an appropriate award.

A special annual meeting is the




one at which the Lions honor Aru-
ba’s mothers. At that time they se-
lect an outstanding mother of the
island and, by honoring her, pay
tribute to all the mothers of Aruba.

Each week the 29 members of the
Lions Club meet to enjoy one an-
other’s fellowship - and to seek ways
they can make Aruba a better place
to live in. Right now they are work-
ing on another project that will
contribute to Aruba’s civie improv-
ement. That’s the organization of
school safety patrols, to make Aru-
ba’s streets a safer place for its
children. Once the patrols are set up,
it will take money to buy the supplies
- helmets, belts, signs, ete. - that are
needed. Into the Lions Activity Fund

now is going the money that will
take care of this.
Members of the Lions Club have

a firm belief that they, united into
a service organization, can make
Aruba a better place to live in. To
that end, they have organized com-
mittees among themselves. A_ list-
ing of several of them gives the
scope and nature of their activities:
Education and Safety; Boys and
Girls Citizenship and Patriotism;
Civie Improvement and Bettermen












Health and Welfare; Sight Conser-
vation and Blind.
Aruba’s Lions Club is relatively



new, and many of its projects have
necessarily been on a small scale.
But members of the organization are
confident that, as they grow, they
can become a more important force
in contributing to the welfare of the
island and its people.

Hollandsche Bank Opens Progress of Aruba

Marked by Opening
Of 2 Bank Buildings

Aruka’s ever-increasing impor-
tance as a commercial and banking
center was sharply emphasized last
month as two new bank buildings
were formally dedicated in Oranje-
stad. They we the Hollandsche
Bank Unie, dedicated on 1 19,
and the Aruba Commercial Bank,
formally opened the following day.

30th buildings are beautiful archi
tectural additions to the face of
Oranjestad. Each has a simplicity of
design and modern lin inside, the
two buildings are so designed to
make the best possible use of all
available space, thus providing their
patrons with the most efficient
service.

The Hollandsche Bank is located
on Nassaustraat, and the Commer-
cial Bank on Wilhelminastraat.

The interiors of both buildings
were decked with numerous floral
tributes as leading citizens of Aruba
gathered last month to join in com-
memorating the two openings.

Both new buildings are a definite
mark of the growth of Aruba as a
commercial and business center.

Nominating Election Will Be
sune 12-13-14; Final 26-27-28

The election of 38 district representatives, final step in establishing
the new employee representation plan, will take place this month. The
nominating election is scheduled for June 12-13-14, and the final
election for June 26-27-28.

Naming district representatives has been awaiting the completion
of the Working Agreement that gives them a basis to operate from;
this work is in its final stages, and the full new plan is expected to
be in operation late this month. This move will round out the plan
that set up the major representative groups for siaff and regular
employees, including Lago Employee Council, Commissary Advisory
Committee, Special Problems Advisory Commitiee, and the Lago Sport
Park Recreation Committee.

The district representative



system is the machinery through which

| the grievance procedure works, A district representative will represent

any eligible employee in his district, at the employee’s request, in the
handling of grievances that have to do with rates of pay, wages, hours
of employment, or working conditions.

If a problem has not been solved through review with the employee's
supervisor, a district representative may carry it to higher levels of
supervision. If a solution has not been found, the problem may then
be considered successively by a divisional conference and a depart-
mental conference. Failing a satisfactory settlement, the Lago
Employee Council may then consider the problem at the representa-
tive’s request. If it wishes, the Council may review the case succes-
sively with the Company representatives, then with the general
manager, and with the president of the company.

tatives will be condueted by a Board . —

Think Before You Vote

Bailoting will be held this month for election of the 38 district
representatives to handle grievance cases of employees through-
out the refinery. The work of these 38 men will be a vital part
of the employee representation system at Lago. For that reason,
much thought and care should be given to their selection.

These 38 men will be available to help you — therefore, they
should be men whom you have confidence in, men whose judg-
ment you respect.

3efore voting, consideration should be given to the general
qualities that make up a good district representative. First, he
should be a person who has a deep interest in the welfare of his
fellow employees. He should be someone whose wisdom and
judgment you trust, someone you feel like going to when you
want help or advice. If he’s a good representative, he will have
a devotion to his constituents and their problems — he'll be |
ready to help you whenever he’s called on. Finally, he should |
have the ability to explore all sides of a problem.

Just as important are the specific characteristics that should
be considered when electing your representative. These include |
his intelligence, qualities of leadership, job experience, years of |
Company service, ability to talk and think, knowledge of Com-
pany policy, and his ability to get along with other people.

The district representative has a great deal of responsibility.
As the voter who selects him, you have as great a responsibility |
to see that you choose the best man for the job. Your repre-
sentative system is no better than the men who represent you.
For that reason, you should choose wisely and well.

Pensa Promé cu bo Vota

E luna aki eleccion lo tuma lugar pa saka e 38 representante-

cu eé tin malo. Ya ta dos anja cu nan
ta interesd den dje, foi tempo cu
nan a tende di su desgracia. For di
e tempo ey e miembronan y nan
senoranan a bishité hopi bez na su



cas y na hospitaal, hibando regalo-
nan pe, y mustrando nan interes den
die.

Na November di anja 1948 nan a
tende kico a pasa Irene y nan a di-
eidi di mira si nan por a duné yu-
danza. Irene a hiba un desgracia
cuater anja pasa, tempo cu e taba-
tin siete anja. Hungando den un ma-
ta, el a cai abao, corta su garganta
riba un bleki; e corta tabata na un
lugar masha delicado na e pipa pa
cual e ta hala rosea,

Mester a hiba Irene hospitaal un-
bez y mester a habri su stoma pa
alimenté, pasobra e no por a guli pa
via cu e cuminda por pasa den e
corta bai den su pulmon. Despues di
hopi siman Irene a bai cas, pero e
no por a come, sino pa e tubo cu
nan a pone na su stoma. Solamente
un cierto cantidad di operacion ma-
sha delicado lo por curé

Irene su mama no tabata mucho
voor pa su jioe worde opera, y hopi
luna largo e mucha su condicion a
keda mescos. Despues, na fin di 1948,
miembronan di Lions Club a bin pa-
pia cu e mama, y porfin nan a com-
bencé cu ta bon pa e mucha worde
opera. Irene a pasa pa tres opera-
cion caba y pronto lo e pasa pa di
cuater; tur e tres operacionnan a
duna bon resultado.

Irene, naturalmente, ta masha
contento cu Lions Club ta tuma tan-
to interes den dje, y cu nan ta yudé
bira bon. Pero Lions Club mes tam-
be ta masha contento, pues esaki ta
un prueba pa nan cu nan ta di ser-











vicio pa e comunidad den cual nan
ta biba. Den caso di Irene, Lions
Club no a contribui cu placa, aun-

que cu nan a cumpra regalonan pe
de bez en cuando. El ta haya trata-
miento médico di Gobierno y loque
Lions Club a haci ta di tuma interes
pa el a haya e atencion médico cu e
tabatin mester.

Un caso parecido ta esun di un
mucha-homber cu a nace cu pia man-
earon; e Club a percura pe haya e
atencion necesario y despues di un
operacion e mucha ta hopi mihor.

Un homber cu tabatin catarata y
cu no tabatin placa pa haci e opera-
cion a haya yudanza cerea Lions
Club.

Desde cu e Club a keda estableci
dia 31 di Januari di 1948, el a pro-
ba di ta util di diferente manera.
Cada anja e ta duna placa pa un
fiesta di Pascu pa muchanan pober
di Aruba (na anja 1948 e Club a
duna 250 saku di cos dushi, ocho
futbal pa muchanan di Aruba - an-
ja pasa el a duna Fs. 300 pa parti
entre cuater school). Tempo di e tem-
blor na Ecuador, e Club a manda
$100 pa Lions Club di Quito pa yu-
da e victimanan; algun dia despues
nan a bolbe manda Fls. 800 pa e
mesun doel. Nan a manda cigarianan

pa soldanan Holandes na Oost, y
nan a contribui pa yuda hendenan

Stricken Girl Sees New Hope
As Lions Continue to Bring Joy



Wives of members of the Aruba Lions Club bring cheer and gifts to

little Irene Jacobs on her 12th birthday. Irene is seen

ated in San



Pedro Hospital, with her mother standing behind her. At right is Hans
Muller, retiring president of the Lions Club.

Seforanan di miembronan di Lions Club ta trece regalo y legria na Irene
Jacobs na Hospitaal San Pedro, dia cu Irene a haci 12 anja.

To most children, observing their
birthday in a hospital would be a
pretty unhappy occasion. But not to
little Irene Jacobs, who spent her
12th birthday May 25 in San Pedro
Hospital. For on that day her friends
- and their wives - from the Aruba

Lions Club descended on her with
gifts and greetings, as well as a
huge birthday cake complete with

lighted candles.

Among her presents were a neck
lace with cross, bracelet, a new dress,
ring, and a dozen other gifts - all
from the Aruba Lions Club.

Nor was this the first occasion
where Club members had _ visited
Irene and cheered her up during the
long period she’s been ill. They be-
came interested in her almost two
years ago, when they first heard of
her plight. Since then, they and their
wives have paid her numerous visits
at home and in the hospital, bring-
ing her gifts and good cheer. Most
of all, they’ve helped bring her the
courage and friendship she needs to
travel down the long road to her
recovery.

The Lions Club’s interest in Irene
is special in a way - their associa-
tion with her has been such a long
one that they now look on her as a

special friend of long standing. In
another way, though, their concern
with her isn’t out of the ordinary -
she’s just one of the many people
whom they, as members of a service
organization, have helped.

The Lions’ interest in Irene
back to November 1948. That
when they first heard of her,
decided to find out if she
their help.

But Irene’s story really goes back
over four years, when she was seven
years old. While playing in a tree,
she fell off a limb and cut her
throat on a sharp can lying on the
ground. The cut was located on a
ve delicate spot on her windpipe
tube leading to her stomach.

Irene was taken to the hospital,
where it was necessary to make an
opening to her stomach so she could

fed. This was necessary since
food coming out of the windpipe
might have gotten into her lungs

and caused pneumonia. After several
weeks in the hospital, Irene went
home, still unable to pass food down
her throat. Only a series of delicate
operations would ever cure her con-
dition.

Lions Help

Irene’s mother was reluctant to
have her undergo any further opera-
tions, and for many months the
child’s condition remained the same.
Then, late in 1948, the Lions Club
heard of the case, and started in-
vestigating it. Members of the Club
talked with the little girl’s mother,
ying to convince her of the des
ability of further operations. They







discussed her ¢: with Dr. A.

Schlachter, of Oranjestad. When
Dr. Schlachter was doubtful that
the operations could be performed

here, the Lions began raising money
to send Irene to the famed Johns
Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore,
Maryland.

Dr. Schlachter, who was himself
very interested in her case, wrote
to the Army Medical Library in
Washington, D.C., which provides
Tree medical services to doctors any-
where. He requested further in-
formation on her type of case, and
the Library sent it to him on micro-
film. Additional study of Irene’s
case convinced Dr. Schlachter that
the operation could be performed in
Aruba.

After many attempts at persua-
sion, members of the Lions Club
succeeded in convincing her mother
of the desirability of starting the
series of operations on the girl. Be-
enuse of the delicate adjustments
that had to be made in her throat,
it was realized from the beginning
that a series of operations would be
necessa to cure her. She has now
undergone three operations, all per-
formed by Dr. Schlachter, and will
soon have another. Each has result-
ed in her improvement.

Irene, naturally, is happy that the
Lions Club took an interest in her,
and that it’s helping her get well.
Even more cheered by her case,
though, are the Lions themselves.
Irene is proof to them that they
are performing a valuable service to
the community in which they live.
In the case of Irene, the Lions Club
made no specific outlay of money -


















although they have provided her
with numerous gifts. She was en-
titled to medical care by the Goy-

The woman was the Begum Lia-
quat Ali, wife of the prime minister

any American housewife -
and that included selecting her own
purchases from the shelves of a



market.

Other Club Projects

In a_ similar case. ve also
taken a great interest in a small
boy with club feet. The Club was in-
strumental in seeing that he got the
attention he needed. After one opera-
tion, he is consider improved.

Another medical ease concerned a
man with cataracts on his eyes. He
lacked the money for an operation,
so the Lions Club provided it.

A woman from St. Lucia, and a
shipwrecked Dominican sailor will
never forget the help given them by
Aruba’s Lions. Both were destitute
until the Lions heard about them -
both were provided with money by
the Lions to get them back to their
homes.

Since
January














the Club was chartered on
31, 1948, it has proved its
worth rvice organization in a
number of ways. Each year it prov-
ides money for a Christmas party
children (in 1948 the Club gave 250
bags of candy, eight footballs to
Aruba’s children - last year it gave
Ils. 300 to be spent at four schools).
At the time of the earthquake in
Ecuador, the Club here sent $100 to
the Lions Club in Quito to be used













for the earthquake victims; a few
days later it sent F 800 for the
same purpose. Aruba’s Lions bought



cigarettes to go to Dutch soldiers in
the East Indies, and they made a
contribution to the cancer fund.
Eve year the Lions honor the
three leading graduates from three
Aruban schools; each student re-





ceives an appropriate award.

A special annual meeting is the




one at which the Lions honor Aru-
ba’s mothers. At that time they se-
lect an outstanding mother of the
island and, by honoring her, pay
tribute to all the mothers of Aruba.

Each week the 29 members of the
Lions Club meet to enjoy one an-
other’s fellowship - and to seek ways
they can make Aruba a better place
to live in. Right now they are work-
ing on another project that will
contribute to Aruba’s civie improv-
ement. That’s the organization of
school safety patrols, to make Aru-
ba’s streets a safer place for its
children. Once the patrols are set up,
it will take money to buy the supplies
- helmets, belts, signs, ete. - that are
needed. Into the Lions Activity Fund

now is going the money that will
take care of this.
Members of the Lions Club have

a firm belief that they, united into
a service organization, can make
Aruba a better place to live in. To
that end, they have organized com-
mittees among themselves. A_ list-
ing of several of them gives the
scope and nature of their activities:
Education and Safety; Boys and
Girls Citizenship and Patriotism;
Civie Improvement and Bettermen












Health and Welfare; Sight Conser-
vation and Blind.
Aruba’s Lions Club is relatively



new, and many of its projects have
necessarily been on a small scale.
But members of the organization are
confident that, as they grow, they
can become a more important force
in contributing to the welfare of the
island and its people.

Hollandsche Bank Opens Progress of Aruba

Marked by Opening
Of 2 Bank Buildings

Aruka’s ever-increasing impor-
tance as a commercial and banking
center was sharply emphasized last
month as two new bank buildings
were formally dedicated in Oranje-
stad. They we the Hollandsche
Bank Unie, dedicated on 1 19,
and the Aruba Commercial Bank,
formally opened the following day.

30th buildings are beautiful archi
tectural additions to the face of
Oranjestad. Each has a simplicity of
design and modern lin inside, the
two buildings are so designed to
make the best possible use of all
available space, thus providing their
patrons with the most efficient
service.

The Hollandsche Bank is located
on Nassaustraat, and the Commer-
cial Bank on Wilhelminastraat.

The interiors of both buildings
were decked with numerous floral
tributes as leading citizens of Aruba
gathered last month to join in com-
memorating the two openings.

Both new buildings are a definite
mark of the growth of Aruba as a
commercial and business center.
