Staff and Regular Cost
of Living Bonus Added

to Base Pay August 1

LEC Negotiates Inclusion of
Percentage for Medical Costs

Four per cent was added to the base pay of Staff and Regular employees
August 1, representing the current Cost-of-Living Bonus including an
additional percentage to cover the revised medical charges for family
members. The change was negotiated by the Lago Employee Council in a
series of meetings with Management representatives, and was announced
to employees July 19.

The quarterly Cost-of-Living sur-
vey completed July 1 indicated a
slight increase in the bonus would be
in order for the three-month period
beginning August 1. Adding the
effect of the family-member medical
costs brought the new Cost-of-Living
Bonus figure from the 2.81 per cent
of the last three months to 3.91 per
cent for the three months beginning
August 1. Negotiations with the
Council brought agreement to round
this upward to four per cent and to
include it in base pay.

At the same time, the hourly shift
differential was changed from 9-%
to 10 cents per hour.

In establishing the new rates,
hourly rates were rounded out to the
nearest half cent upward; daily rates
to the nearest five cents upward; an
monthly rates to the nearest guilder
upward. The Rates of Pay charts in
the Working Agreement will be
revised accordingly.

Regular quarterly Cost-of-Living
surveys will continue to be made in
the same manner as in the past, and
any increase over the August 1 index
will be compensated for by bonus
payments added to employee earnings
as in the past.

Working Agreement Studied
In Series of Meetings

Nearly 700 supervisors and employee representatives met in a series
of conference sessions early this month for detailed discussions of
all aspects and provisions of the Working Agreement. Completed just
before the Company began observance of the Agreement July 15,
this intensive training effort was
aimed at full understanding, so that
the Agreement will be of the grea-
test mutual benefit to employees and
Company.

The effort toward maximum under-

U.S. Tourists Spend
Fis. 108.000.000 in
Caribbean in 1949

A United States Commerce De-
partment release states that United
States tourists spent an estimated
$57,000,000 or Fls. 108,000,000 in
1949 on travel in the West Indies
and Central America, about Fls 9,-
500,000 more than was spent in
1948.

Of this amount, it is estimated that
Fls. 34,200,000 was spent in travel to
Cuba, an increase of Fls. 950,000
over 1948, but Fls. 3,700,000 less
than was spent there in 1939.

The Commerce Department attri-
buted the growing popularity of
near-by regions to their accessibility,
expansion of air transport, the in-
crease in paid vacations which are
not long enough to permit long voy-
ages, and the carryover from the
"Depression Thirties’ which made
near-by, lower-cost vacations more
attractive.

With the probabilities of a large
diversion of tourist traffic to Rome
and to Europe in general this year,

Whoever They Are...

On August 18 two boys from this year’s graduating Appren-
tice Class will go home with exciting news to their parents. Like
Dominico Britten and Francisco Dijkhoff, they will be the
winners of a year’s scholarship in the United States.

Whoever they are, when they take the good news home, there

will be glad smiles...

and a few tears. Although their parents

will be sad to see them go away for a year, the boys will have
one of the finest opportunities of their lives. Their families and
their friends will be proud of them.

By their willingness to study and by their conduct Dominico
and Francisco last year at Allentown blazed the trail for the

winners this year.
Lago expects and hopes that

the broadening experiences of

schooling in the States will make finer and more ambitious
employees. This is not all. The scholarship program is part of a
long-range plan to help build better citizens of Aruba. These
scholarships, and the four years of training given to many
young Arubans, are a solid contribution to Aruba’s future.

So to their families, to their

work, and to Aruba, the two

winners must dedicate their studies. We are confident that they
will shoulder their responsibilities as well as did Dom and Frank.

Kids to the right of them,
Kids to the left of them,
Dogs in front of them.....
Into the playground,
Massed for a fun brigade,
Came the 500.

With apologies to Tennyson

children from kinder-

garten through high school are participating in the
summer program sponsored by the Community Council.
Two classes are sponsored by the Woman’s Club.

Every week day from 8:30 to 4:30 the children are
kept busy with a variety of activities. The Community
Council’s phase of the program includes swimming and
diving, playground supervision (archery, softball etc.),
canteen supervision (bridge, pool ete.), arts and crafts
and an elementary school program. There are 150
children of elementary age. In addition to arts and
crafts and swimming they have painting, music, dra-
matics, dancing, story telling and tumbling.

The Council’s first summer program was held last
year. It proved so successful it was decided to hire more
professional outside help for this year. The six in-
structors hired by the Council from the states are
Betty Meng, Cornell University, and Frances Smith,
Cortland State Teacher’s College, elementary school in-
struction; Lois Hayn, University of Buffalo, and
Charles Foote, Cornell Medical College, swimming;
Mary Wall, canteen and Jo Ann Daigler, playground,
beth University of Buffalo.

Colony residents or visitors who are also helping for
the summer are Christine Buchholtz, Kansas University
student, elementary story telling; Tom Tucker, Tulane
University student, playground for boys; Mrs. Robert
MacMillan and Mrs. Ralph Watson, arts and crafts,
and Mrs. C. C. Wadell, archery.

James Downey, school physical instructor, is rec-
reation director for summer activities for children.

The Woman’s Club is sponsoring classes in needle-
work and dressmaking for teen-age girls. Mrs. W. C.
Spitzer and Mrs. A. J. Hellwigg, club officers, worked
with the Community Council on a meeting place for
the girls and on obtaining equipment. About 25 girls,
most of whom take both courses, meet in the elemen-
tary school. Sewing machines are loaned by various
colony residents. Instructors are Mrs. R. H. Baggaley,
Mrs. L. D. Bonbrest, Mrs. J. C. Newby, needlework;
Mrs. Harold Lambertson, Mrs. Gilbert Orr, dressmak-
ing.

It is hoped the summer program will provide fun for
the small fry and will prove both helpful and healthful
for parents and children.

The children’s summer program is financed by an annual commuvity
drive for funds among Lago Colony residents. Some of the money goes
to support of community activities like this, while a larger portion goes
to charitable and relief activities in many parts of the world

B.G. Greenheart Greeted |

in Miami with Ceremony

The first shipment of British
Guiana ”greenheart” logs arrived in
Miami, Florida last week, and was
greeted with ceremonies that in-
cluded speeches by the mayor of
Miami Beach and a representative of
Miami’s mayor, as the 110-ton cargo
was unloaded.

A representative of the New York
firm importing the wood stated that
it is the hardest in the world, that
it weighs 72 pounds to the cubic foot
and sinks in water, and that it is
ideal for docks and other construc-
tion purposes since it is impervious
to termites and other wood-boring
insects.

Staff and Regular Cost
of Living Bonus Added

to Base Pay August 1

LEC Negotiates Inclusion of
Percentage for Medical Costs

Four per cent was added to the base pay of Staff and Regular employees
August 1, representing the current Cost-of-Living Bonus including an
additional percentage to cover the revised medical charges for family
members. The change was negotiated by the Lago Employee Council in a
series of meetings with Management representatives, and was announced
to employees July 19.

The quarterly Cost-of-Living sur-
vey completed July 1 indicated a
slight increase in the bonus would be
in order for the three-month period
beginning August 1. Adding the
effect of the family-member medical
costs brought the new Cost-of-Living
Bonus figure from the 2.81 per cent
of the last three months to 3.91 per
cent for the three months beginning
August 1. Negotiations with the
Council brought agreement to round
this upward to four per cent and to
include it in base pay.

At the same time, the hourly shift
differential was changed from 9-%
to 10 cents per hour.

In establishing the new rates,
hourly rates were rounded out to the
nearest half cent upward; daily rates
to the nearest five cents upward; an
monthly rates to the nearest guilder
upward. The Rates of Pay charts in
the Working Agreement will be
revised accordingly.

Regular quarterly Cost-of-Living
surveys will continue to be made in
the same manner as in the past, and
any increase over the August 1 index
will be compensated for by bonus
payments added to employee earnings
as in the past.

U.S. Tourists Spend
Fis. 108.000.000 in
Caribbean in 1949

A United States Commerce De-
partment release states that United
States tourists spent an estimated
$57,000,000 or Fls. 108,000,000 in
1949 on travel in the West Indies
and Central America, about Fls 9,-
500,000 more than was spent in
1948.

Of this amount, it is estimated that
Fls. 34,200,000 was spent in travel to
Cuba, an increase of Fls. 950,000
over 1948, but Fls. 3,700,000 less
than was spent there in 1939.

The Commerce Department attri-
buted the growing popularity of
near-by regions to their accessibility,
expansion of air transport, the in-
crease in paid vacations which are
not long enough to permit long voy-
ages, and the carryover from the
"Depression Thirties’ which made
near-by, lower-cost vacations more
attractive.

With the probabilities of a large
diversion of tourist traffic to Rome
and to Europe in general this year,

Whoever They Are...

On August 18 two boys from this year’s graduating Appren-
tice Class will go home with exciting news to their parents. Like
Dominico Britten and Francisco Dijkhoff, they will be the
winners of a year’s scholarship in the United States.

Whoever they are, when they take the good news home, there

will be glad smiles...

and a few tears. Although their parents

will be sad to see them go away for a year, the boys will have
one of the finest opportunities of their lives. Their families and
their friends will be proud of them.

By their willingness to study and by their conduct Dominico
and Francisco last year at Allentown blazed the trail for the

winners this year.
Lago expects and hopes that

the broadening experiences of

schooling in the States will make finer and more ambitious
employees. This is not all. The scholarship program is part of a
long-range plan to help build better citizens of Aruba. These
scholarships, and the four years of training given to many
young Arubans, are a solid contribution to Aruba’s future.

So to their families, to their

work, and to Aruba, the two

winners must dedicate their studies. We are confident that they
will shoulder their responsibilities as well as did Dom and Frank.

newspapers, according to a clipping
received by G. Futter of the Marine
Department from a British pape:

Writing under a world copyright
Mate Karnls tells of their visit to
Curagao and Aruba before heading
on for the Panama Canal. At Aruba
(where they give credit for the help
given them by the Community Coun-

particularly interested in the spea
fishing party they went on. And as
longtime inhabitants of Sweden with

Kids to the right of them,
Kids to the left of them,
Dogs in front of them.....
Into the playground,
Massed for a fun brigade,
Came the 500.

With apologies to Tennyson

children from kinder-

garten through high school are participating in the
summer program sponsored by the Community Council.
Two classes are sponsored by the Woman’s Club.

Every week day from 8:30 to 4:30 the children are
kept busy with a variety of activities. The Community
Council’s phase of the program includes swimming and
diving, playground supervision (archery, softball etc.),
canteen supervision (bridge, pool ete.), arts and crafts
and an elementary school program. There are 150
children of elementary age. In addition to arts and
crafts and swimming they have painting, music, dra-
matics, dancing, story telling and tumbling.

The Council’s first summer program was held last
year. It proved so successful it was decided to hire more
professional outside help for this year. The six in-
structors hired by the Council from the states are
Betty Meng, Cornell University, and Frances Smith,
Cortland State Teacher’s College, elementary school in-
struction; Lois Hayn, University of Buffalo, and
Charles Foote, Cornell Medical College, swimming;
Mary Wall, canteen and Jo Ann Daigler, playground,
beth University of Buffalo.

Colony residents or visitors who are also helping for
the summer are Christine Buchholtz, Kansas University
student, elementary story telling; Tom Tucker, Tulane
University student, playground for boys; Mrs. Robert
MacMillan and Mrs. Ralph Watson, arts and crafts,
and Mrs. C. C. Wadell, archery.

James Downey, school physical instructor, is rec-
reation director for summer activities for children.

The Woman’s Club is sponsoring classes in needle-
work and dressmaking for teen-age girls. Mrs. W. C.
Spitzer and Mrs. A. J. Hellwigg, club officers, worked
with the Community Council on a meeting place for
the girls and on obtaining equipment. About 25 girls,
most of whom take both courses, meet in the elemen-
tary school. Sewing machines are loaned by various
colony residents. Instructors are Mrs. R. H. Baggaley,
Mrs. L. D. Bonbrest, Mrs. J. C. Newby, needlework;
Mrs. Harold Lambertson, Mrs. Gilbert Orr, dressmak-
ing.

It is hoped the summer program will provide fun for
the small fry and will prove both helpful and healthful
for parents and children.

The children’s summer program is financed by an annual commuvity
drive for funds among Lago Colony residents. Some of the money goes
to support of community activities like this, while a larger portion goes
to charitable and relief activities in many parts of the world

it weighs 72 pounds to the cubic foot
and sinks in water, and that it is
ideal for docks and other construc-
