Booklets To Help
In Entering Contest



Supervisors are now _ receiving
copies of a booklet entitled "How
You Can Help Cut Costs”. The

booklet is designed not only to help
employees to enter the cost contest,
but as an aid to supervisors in ex-
plaining the rules and other infor-
mation to employees who wish to
write an essay.

Employees throughout the plant
will rece copies of the booklet,
in English and Papiamento, on
August 28, one week before the
contest opens. Each booklet contains
an entry blank on which the essay
may be written. Additional entry

Contest Dates Are
Sept. 4 to Oct. 4

Essays to be Judged
In Relation to Job;
Anyone Can Win!

Ten thousand guilders 101
prizes — a top prize of Fls. 1,000 -
and equal chances for any eligible
employee to win... all for writing
about "How I Can Help Cut
Costs.

These are the high spots of
Lago’s Cost Reduction Essay
Contest announced today. (Prize
‘list is at left; see page 3 for com-
plete rules.)

The month-long contest, opening
September 4, is open to all em-
ployees except supervisors and others
recognized as part of Management.
It was felt that as long as cost re-
duction is rightly a regular part of
supervisors’ jobs, their not competing
in the contest would give all en-
|} trants an even chance.

Essays, one to each employee, may
be any length and may be written
in’ English, Papiamento, Dutch,
| Spanish or French.

Employees are advised to
thinking now about helping to cut
costs in connection with their own
| jobs, because that is how the con-
| test is going to be judged. Spelling,
| grammar, punctuation - these things
are not important this time. The
important thing is how to cut costs
}on the job. On one job there might
| be many more opportunities to cut
}eosts than on another. If so, more
will be expected from that author.
Essays will be judged in relation to

Gets Largest
Initial CYI

One thousand guilders, the largest
initial CYI award ever paid to an
employee in Aruba, was _ presented
last week to Paul Jensen, general
foreman of the Instrument Depart-
ment.

Mr. Jensen first presented his idea
of using mobile equipment storage
units (see The Esso Ne Ju'y 7,
page 5), in 1946. The > idea as
it was later applied calls for two
van-type trailers parked at the scene
of the operation, one containing
storehouse items and the other tools.
This saves the time and inconvenience
of waiting for tools and materials
to be delivered as they are needed,
and the resulting savings in actual
cost are considerable.

EVERYBODY'S JOB

If you hire a carpenter to fix the roof of your house, and he
wastes your wood and loses your nails and accidentally kicks in
one of your louvres, you aren’t likely to say he did a good job.
The roof repairs may be absolutely perfect, a fine job of car-
pentering, no one could do it better and yet you will say that
that man is not a good carpenter.

Seems strange, doesn’t it? But it isn’t really. Because being a
good carpenter or good executive or good office clerk requires
not only that jobs be completed but that they be done always
with one eye on costs.

The next time your roof needs fixing you will look for some-
one else to do the job. And you will look not only for someone
who can saw and hammer as well as the first man did — you will
look for someone who can do the job without careless waste.

Keeping costs down is the roof-carpenter’s job just as much
as it is the house-owner’s. And it is any employee’s job just as
much as it is a supervisor’s. The contest on page 1 is meant to
remind employees of this fact to impress every Lagoite with
the fact that COST REDUCTION IS EVERYBODY’S JOB.

New traffic regulations have been |
introduced on the ’’Klip” in Oranje-
stad as a result of the widening of
the L. G. Smith Boulevard.

The most important changes are:

It is again permitted to drive in
both directions on the L. G.
Smith Boulevard.

The one-way traffic from the
Governor’s house to the Lt. Go-
vernor’s house will be maintained,
but in the opposite direction.

The direction of the traffic in
the Julianastraat has also been
reversed. The parking prohibition
in that street which is changed
monthly will be maintained.

Traffic is only permitted in the
Beatrixstraat starting from Rooi-
weg in the direction of the Ju-|
liana School and parking is per-
mitted on the
road only.

In the Irenestraat parking is
prohibited from the Wilhelmina- |
straat up to the Juliana School.

In several streets around the Ju- |
liana School and Boy KEcury
Square and Park, one-way traffic |
has been introduced.

The Lagoenweg-Noord is now a
one-way street in the direction of
the sea. In the future parking is
prohibited on the right side of
that road.

Motorists entering the area are
advised to pay extra heed to the new
traffic signs indicating these changes.

Members of the committee have

for cutting oil losses have come
from round-table discussions, the

mento, Dutch, Spanish, or French.

6. Each employee may enter only one essay.

7. Write on both sides of paper, using pen, pencil, or typewriter.

8. Essays will NOT be judged on grammar or fine writing. They
WILL be judged on what you can do to help cut costs. Your
essay will be judged in relation to your job. That is, a higher-
paid employee has a greater opportunity to help cut costs than
the lower-paid employee. So more will be expected from the
higher-paid employee. And the sincerity of your essay will

count too.

Regardless of your job, you have as good a chance as anybody

else to win any prize.

9. Your name and payroll number will not be seen by the judges.

Each essay will receive a

number, and the judges will see

only that number, plus your department and job title.

When they had gone, the cat said

And the camel said: "Very well,

So the cat jumped on the camel’s

The camel, being a wise old camel,
waded on through the river - deeper

swim. Then turning to the cat, and
with a tricky look in his eye, said:
"I feel very anxious to roll.”

"Oh, pray don’t. Why do you wish

"Oh, I don’t know,” answered the

New building planned

The school will be housed in the
old barracks of the Juliana School
until a new building, with location
planned for the nta Cruz road, can
be built. The architectural plans for
the new school building have been
drawn up by Jan Nagel, director of
the Aruba Building Company. When
funds are available from the govern-
ment construction will begin.

There will be three teachers, Mr.
Amelink, S. C. shouten, formerly
a director of a private trade school
in Curacao, and a substitute who wil!
fill in until a third regular teacher
arrives from Holland.

The idea of a trade school, long

The government was approached
with tentative plans and gave the
final go ahead signal last year. Dr.
Goslinga then delegated Mr. Amelink

To date fifty boys have registered

Evangelist Visits Pentecostal
Church in San Nicolas

Monte Grant, missionary and
evangelist from Corona, N.Y., visited
the Pentecostal Church in San Ni-
colas during June and July. She also
made a short visit to Curacao. During
her stay in Aruba many special
meetings were held at the church,
with a final farewell service held
July 31.

During her visit Mrs. Grant took

time to go to hospitals to visit the |

sick who were unable to attend her
services,

She left Aruba August 1 for Ja-
maica and later plans to visit Ha-
vana, Cuba.

Writing an Essay is Easy

Have you ever written a letter,

made out a shopping list or jotted |
down notes to yourself as remind-
ers? Writing an essay is as simple
as any of those things. Just write
down your thoughts on ways you
can help reduce costs and connect
them with some ands”, ”alsos”
and periods and - there, you have
it.
The important point is that you
do write down your ideas on
cutting costs, not the way you
write them down.

Aruba Rainfall Turns Tabled
On St. Swithin’s Day Legens

An old English superstition goes
like this: "If it rains on St. Swithin’s
Day, July 15, it will continue to rain
for forty days!”

Of the 0.99 inches of rain that fell
in July, there was a period between
July 5 to July 18 in which there was
no rain... except for a little bit that
fell on St. Swithin’s day.

It wasn’t very much rain... just
-01 inches, but it was enough to turn
the tables on the old superstition. It
hasn’t rained for forty days after!

Rainfall this year is breaking
other traditions too. Although July
ranks sixth in rain for the last 21
years, the total for the last seven
months, 18.68 inches, is far ahead of
the average for the last 20 years,
4.98 inches.

A few more figures are interesting.
July is ahead of the average rain-
fall for that month, 0.77 inches; the
first seven months for this year are
ahead of any previous seven months
(the highest was 1938 with 10.35
inches). And the 18.68 inches so far
this year are ahead of the total rain
pcoried in 13 different years since

forward and two green lights go on.

When there is an accident, two red

lights go on, and the name of the ship is posted.

For the first time since its forma-
Aruba Camera
Club exhibited its work to the public
Friday, August 4, at the Lago Club
Activities building.

The exhibit of more than 30 salon

| photographs was the first of a series
| of monthly contests. First prize of

Fls. 25 was won by Norman Singh,
T.S.D. and was donated by the
Kuster Trading Co. Judges of the
contest were C. Kosier, Ind. Rel., Dr.

| R. Burtan, and C. Gray, T.S.D.

The Camera Club was founded last
March 25 when nine amateur photo-
graphers met in the Lago Heights
Bachelor Quarters to explore the
possibilities of promoting a club. By
March 31 the Club had its first
official meeting in the activities
elected officers.
Elected were: Allan A. Kalloo, pres-
ident; Hilton C. Benthum, vice-pres-
ident; Joseph H. Morris, treasurer;
and F. P. Moran-Guevara, secretary.

The purpose of the club is to give
general assistance to amateur pho-
tographers through lectures, field
trips, and short courses. The monthly
exhibits are followed by constructive
criticism of the work. Another
project underway is the direction and
equipping of a darkroom and studio.

The Camera Club meets weekly on
Friday evenings.

Aruba-Curacgao Golf
Match Ends in Tie

The golf match between the wo-
mens’ teams of Aruba and Curacao,
the first in 10 years, played the last
week end of July, ended in a tie.
This is the first time in memory of
womens’ golf matches in Aruba that
the final score has been all tied up.

The cup, donated by Dr. Virgil
Reeve for this and future Aruba-
Curacao tournaments, was given to
the Curacao women to keep for six
months. It will then be returned to
Aruba until the return tournament
next year. Dr. Reeve also donated
prizes for tournament low gross and
low net which he will continue to do
for future Aruba-Curagao matches.
The prizes, a silver platter and
matching covered vegetable dish for
each, were won by Mrs. Gladys
Baggaley, low gross and Mrs. Gladys
Stevens, low net.

Prizes given by the Golf Club for
the visiting team were a Jensen key
ring won by Mrs. Jessie King for
low net, and a matching set of Jensen
pins won by Mrs. Gwen Fosbrook for
low gross.

The visiting team arrived Thurs-
day, July 27 and was met at the
plane by the Golf Club officers and
the team. Matches, 18 holes a day,
were played on Friday and Saturday.
During their free time the ladies
were entertained at informal gather-
ings, a formal party, a luncheon, a
cocktail party and the Golf Club in-
formal dance.

The eight to
will
match

visitors returned
Curacao Sunday night. They
play host for the return
sometime next year.

lrausquin and Wester Named

(continued from page 1)
clothes will be bought after their
arrival.

Accompanied by E. F. Welch of the
Training Division who went with
last year’s winners, the boys will
leave by plane for Miami August 27,
a week from Sunday. Monday they
take off by train for New York,
arriving the next day. The trip this
year parallels last year’s in that
neither boy has ever been off the
jsland before. As with Dominico
Britten and Francisco Dijkhoff last
year, most of their experiences will
be firsts.

They will have three days in New
York City in which to see the sights.
As this is one day less than last year
Mr. Welch asked Dom and Frank to
list what they enjoyed most when
they were in the "big city”. First on
the list was a television broadcast.
Second was the Empire State Build-
ing and then came the automat; Mr.
Welch recalls that the boys wanted to
go to the automat every single night
just before bedtime. Fourth on the
list was the Ice Show and then came
a baseball game, Radio City, Colum-
bia University and the Museum of
Science and Industry. Starting from
the top of the list Mr. Welch will
take Pedro and Jan to see as many
of these as time allows.



For the second year Lago’s boys

will attend the Allentown (Pa.)
Vocational Public High School and
will make their home with Mr. and
Mrs. Donald Wilkinson, Mr. Wilkin-
son is principal of the Junior High
School. They have two small children
of their own. Mr. Welch, Pedro and
Jan take the train for Allentown
September 1. Until school opens on
September 6 Mr. Welch will take the
boys shopping, introduce then around
town, acquaint them with the schools

and help them to get used to their

new life.

Sport Park Baseball

Four hard-fought games have been
played in the Sport Park baseball
tournament starting with a pitchers’
duel in the kick-off game between
Babe Ruth and San Lucas on July 30.

Scores on the four games are:
Babe Ruth 1 San Lucas 0
Braves 13 Budweiser 8
Dodgers 1 ted Rock 0
San Lucas 3 Nesbitts 2

The 1950 competition promises to
be outstanding, judging by the
games so far. One of the best per-
formances has been that of Babe
Ruth’s Reuben Phillips who pitched
a no-hit game for 8 and 2/8 innings,
(the first of its kind in any Lago
Sport Park organized competition).
Top quality pitching and tight play-
ing at all points have kept runs to
a minimum. The race for the cham-
pionship will be close and exciting,
both to the teams and to the specta-
tors.





THE NBC TROPHY is presented to

Plant
Com-

E. Huckleman, right of the
Dispensary, who is Baseball
missioner for the Netherlands An-
tilles. The trophy, donated by the
Coca Cola Company, will be awarded
to the winning team of the 1950 Lago
Sport Park Baseball League. This
team will be honored as the top
team in the Netherlands Antilles.
Rosie Tjin-A-Loi, a Coca Cola
employee, is presenting the trophy
while L. J. Prince, superintendent of
the Coca Cola plant, looks on.

The Lago Heights Softball Tourna-
ment reached its fourth week of play
last week proving once again that
upsets are as typical of softball as
any sport. Last year’s underdog
Braves have swept the field of ten
teams winning four games out of
four, while the Dodgers, previous
champions, are in fourth place.

For Vocational Program)

Ninety-five new vocational students
for the company’s four-year training
program have been chosen from the
258 recently tested in ten schools.

This group of boys will be made
job offers and will be scheduled for
physical examinations shortly. Those
that pass will begin the vocational
program around September 12.

During the first year, half of their
time will be spent in developing
manual skills in the Training Divi-
sion’s well-equipped shops; the
balance of time will be on classwork,
concentrating first on English and
arithmetic. During the first two
years in the four-year course, a
portion of each day is given over to
recreational periods.

In Entering Contest



Supervisors are now _ receiving
copies of a booklet entitled "How
You Can Help Cut Costs”. The

plaining the rules and other infor-
mation to employees who wish to
write an essay.

Employees throughout the plant
will rece copies of the booklet,
in English and Papiamento, on
August 28, one week before the

Sept. 4 to Oct. 4

Essays to be Judged
In Relation to Job;
Anyone Can Win!

Ten thousand guilders 101
prizes — a top prize of Fls. 1,000 -
and equal chances for any eligible
employee to win... all for writing
about "How I Can Help Cut
Costs.

These are the high spots of
Lago’s Cost Reduction Essay
Contest announced today. (Prize
‘list is at left; see page 3 for com-
plete rules.)

The month-long contest, opening
September 4, is open to all em-
ployees except supervisors and others
recognized as part of Management.
It was felt that as long as cost re-
duction is rightly a regular part of
supervisors’ jobs, their not competing
in the contest would give all en-
|} trants an even chance.

Essays, one to each employee, may
be any length and may be written
in’ English, Papiamento, Dutch,
| Spanish or French.

Employees are advised to
thinking now about helping to cut
costs in connection with their own
| jobs, because that is how the con-
| test is going to be judged. Spelling,
| grammar, punctuation - these things
are not important this time. The
important thing is how to cut costs
}on the job. On one job there might
| be many more opportunities to cut
}eosts than on another. If so, more
will be expected from that author.
Essays will be judged in relation to

Gets Largest
Initial CYI

One thousand guilders, the largest
initial CYI award ever paid to an
employee in Aruba, was _ presented
last week to Paul Jensen, general
foreman of the Instrument Depart-
ment.

Mr. Jensen first presented his idea
of using mobile equipment storage
units (see The Esso Ne Ju'y 7,
page 5), in 1946. The > idea as
it was later applied calls for two
van-type trailers parked at the scene
of the operation, one containing
storehouse items and the other tools.
This saves the time and inconvenience
of waiting for tools and materials
to be delivered as they are needed,
and the resulting savings in actual
cost are considerable.

EVERYBODY'S JOB

If you hire a carpenter to fix the roof of your house, and he
wastes your wood and loses your nails and accidentally kicks in
one of your louvres, you aren’t likely to say he did a good job.
The roof repairs may be absolutely perfect, a fine job of car-
pentering, no one could do it better and yet you will say that
that man is not a good carpenter.

Seems strange, doesn’t it? But it isn’t really. Because being a
good carpenter or good executive or good office clerk requires
not only that jobs be completed but that they be done always
with one eye on costs.

The next time your roof needs fixing you will look for some-
one else to do the job. And you will look not only for someone
who can saw and hammer as well as the first man did — you will
look for someone who can do the job without careless waste.

Keeping costs down is the roof-carpenter’s job just as much
as it is the house-owner’s. And it is any employee’s job just as
much as it is a supervisor’s. The contest on page 1 is meant to
remind employees of this fact to impress every Lagoite with
the fact that COST REDUCTION IS EVERYBODY’S JOB.

New traffic regulations have been |
introduced on the ’’Klip” in Oranje-
stad as a result of the widening of
the L. G. Smith Boulevard.

The most important changes are:

It is again permitted to drive in
both directions on the L. G.
Smith Boulevard.

The one-way traffic from the
Governor’s house to the Lt. Go-
vernor’s house will be maintained,
but in the opposite direction.

The direction of the traffic in
the Julianastraat has also been
reversed. The parking prohibition
in that street which is changed
monthly will be maintained.

Traffic is only permitted in the
Beatrixstraat starting from Rooi-
weg in the direction of the Ju-|
liana School and parking is per-
mitted on the
road only.

In the Irenestraat parking is
prohibited from the Wilhelmina- |
straat up to the Juliana School.

In several streets around the Ju- |
liana School and Boy KEcury
Square and Park, one-way traffic |
has been introduced.

The Lagoenweg-Noord is now a
one-way street in the direction of
the sea. In the future parking is
prohibited on the right side of
that road.

Motorists entering the area are
advised to pay extra heed to the new
traffic signs indicating these changes.

8. Essays will NOT be judged on grammar or fine writing. They
WILL be judged on what you can do to help cut costs. Your
essay will be judged in relation to your job. That is, a higher-
paid employee has a greater opportunity to help cut costs than
the lower-paid employee. So more will be expected from the
higher-paid employee. And the sincerity of your essay will

count too.

Regardless of your job, you have as good a chance as anybody

else to win any prize.

Each essay will receive a

The camel, being a wise old camel,

swim. Then turning to the cat, and
with a tricky look in his eye, said:

The school will be housed in the
old barracks of the Juliana School
until a new building, with location
planned for the nta Cruz road, can
be built. The architectural plans for
the new school building have been
drawn up by Jan Nagel, director of
the Aruba Building Company. When
funds are available from the govern-
ment construction will begin.

There will be three teachers, Mr.
Amelink, S. C. shouten, formerly
a director of a private trade school
in Curacao, and a substitute who wil!

Evangelist Visits Pentecostal
Church in San Nicolas

Monte Grant, missionary and
evangelist from Corona, N.Y., visited
the Pentecostal Church in San Ni-
colas during June and July. She also
made a short visit to Curacao. During
her stay in Aruba many special
meetings were held at the church,
with a final farewell service held
July 31.

During her visit Mrs. Grant took

time to go to hospitals to visit the |

sick who were unable to attend her
services,

She left Aruba August 1 for Ja-
maica and later plans to visit Ha-
vana, Cuba.

Writing an Essay is Easy

Have you ever written a letter,

made out a shopping list or jotted |
down notes to yourself as remind-
ers? Writing an essay is as simple
as any of those things. Just write
down your thoughts on ways you
can help reduce costs and connect
them with some ands”, ”alsos”
and periods and - there, you have
it.
The important point is that you
do write down your ideas on
cutting costs, not the way you
write them down.

Aruba Rainfall Turns Tabled
On St. Swithin’s Day Legens

An old English superstition goes
like this: "If it rains on St. Swithin’s
Day, July 15, it will continue to rain
for forty days!”

Of the 0.99 inches of rain that fell
in July, there was a period between
July 5 to July 18 in which there was
no rain... except for a little bit that
fell on St. Swithin’s day.

It wasn’t very much rain... just
-01 inches, but it was enough to turn
the tables on the old superstition. It
hasn’t rained for forty days after!

Rainfall this year is breaking
other traditions too. Although July
ranks sixth in rain for the last 21
years, the total for the last seven
months, 18.68 inches, is far ahead of
the average for the last 20 years,
4.98 inches.

A few more figures are interesting.
July is ahead of the average rain-
fall for that month, 0.77 inches; the
first seven months for this year are
ahead of any previous seven months
(the highest was 1938 with 10.35
inches). And the 18.68 inches so far
this year are ahead of the total rain
pcoried in 13 different years since

ident; Hilton C. Benthum, vice-pres-
ident; Joseph H. Morris, treasurer;

project underway is the direction and
equipping of a darkroom and studio.

Aruba-Curacgao Golf
Match Ends in Tie

The golf match between the wo-
mens’ teams of Aruba and Curacao,
the first in 10 years, played the last
week end of July, ended in a tie.
This is the first time in memory of
womens’ golf matches in Aruba that
the final score has been all tied up.

The cup, donated by Dr. Virgil
Reeve for this and future Aruba-
Curacao tournaments, was given to
the Curacao women to keep for six
months. It will then be returned to
Aruba until the return tournament
next year. Dr. Reeve also donated
prizes for tournament low gross and
low net which he will continue to do
for future Aruba-Curagao matches.
The prizes, a silver platter and
matching covered vegetable dish for
each, were won by Mrs. Gladys
Baggaley, low gross and Mrs. Gladys
Stevens, low net.

Prizes given by the Golf Club for
the visiting team were a Jensen key
ring won by Mrs. Jessie King for
low net, and a matching set of Jensen
pins won by Mrs. Gwen Fosbrook for
low gross.

The visiting team arrived Thurs-
day, July 27 and was met at the
plane by the Golf Club officers and
the team. Matches, 18 holes a day,
were played on Friday and Saturday.
During their free time the ladies
were entertained at informal gather-
ings, a formal party, a luncheon, a
cocktail party and the Golf Club in-
formal dance.

The eight to
will
match

visitors returned
Curacao Sunday night. They
play host for the return
sometime next year.

lrausquin and Wester Named

(continued from page 1)
clothes will be bought after their
arrival.

Accompanied by E. F. Welch of the
Training Division who went with
last year’s winners, the boys will
leave by plane for Miami August 27,
a week from Sunday. Monday they
take off by train for New York,
arriving the next day. The trip this
year parallels last year’s in that
neither boy has ever been off the
jsland before. As with Dominico
Britten and Francisco Dijkhoff last
year, most of their experiences will
be firsts.

They will have three days in New
York City in which to see the sights.
As this is one day less than last year
Mr. Welch asked Dom and Frank to
list what they enjoyed most when
they were in the "big city”. First on
the list was a television broadcast.
Second was the Empire State Build-
ing and then came the automat; Mr.
Welch recalls that the boys wanted to
go to the automat every single night
just before bedtime. Fourth on the
list was the Ice Show and then came
a baseball game, Radio City, Colum-
bia University and the Museum of
Science and Industry. Starting from
the top of the list Mr. Welch will
take Pedro and Jan to see as many
of these as time allows.



For the second year Lago’s boys

will attend the Allentown (Pa.)
Vocational Public High School and
will make their home with Mr. and
Mrs. Donald Wilkinson, Mr. Wilkin-
son is principal of the Junior High
School. They have two small children
of their own. Mr. Welch, Pedro and
Jan take the train for Allentown
September 1. Until school opens on
September 6 Mr. Welch will take the
boys shopping, introduce then around
town, acquaint them with the schools

and help them to get used to their

new life.

Sport Park Baseball

Four hard-fought games have been
played in the Sport Park baseball
tournament starting with a pitchers’
duel in the kick-off game between
Babe Ruth and San Lucas on July 30.

Scores on the four games are:
Babe Ruth 1 San Lucas 0
Braves 13 Budweiser 8
Dodgers 1 ted Rock 0
San Lucas 3 Nesbitts 2

The 1950 competition promises to
be outstanding, judging by the
games so far. One of the best per-
formances has been that of Babe
Ruth’s Reuben Phillips who pitched
a no-hit game for 8 and 2/8 innings,
(the first of its kind in any Lago
Sport Park organized competition).
Top quality pitching and tight play-
ing at all points have kept runs to
a minimum. The race for the cham-
pionship will be close and exciting,
both to the teams and to the specta-
tors.





THE NBC TROPHY is presented to

Plant
Com-

E. Huckleman, right of the
Dispensary, who is Baseball
missioner for the Netherlands An-
tilles. The trophy, donated by the
Coca Cola Company, will be awarded
to the winning team of the 1950 Lago
Sport Park Baseball League. This
team will be honored as the top
team in the Netherlands Antilles.
Rosie Tjin-A-Loi, a Coca Cola
employee, is presenting the trophy
while L. J. Prince, superintendent of
the Coca Cola plant, looks on.

95 Apprentices Chosen)
For Vocational Program)

Ninety-five new vocational students
for the company’s four-year training
program have been chosen from the
258 recently tested in ten schools.

This group of boys will be made
job offers and will be scheduled for
physical examinations shortly. Those
that pass will begin the vocational
program around September 12.

During the first year, half of their
time will be spent in developing
manual skills in the Training Divi-
sion’s well-equipped shops; the
balance of time will be on classwork,
concentrating first on English and
arithmetic. During the first two
years in the four-year course, a
portion of each day is given over to
recreational periods.
