This is being done because the
first hundred ays received show
that many employees may not
understand the contest fully:

1 — Many are writing down only
thing about cutting costs.

— Many are writing only about
things that their department or the
Company or somebody else could do
to cut costs — but they are forget-
ting to write about what they them-
selves, in their work, can do to cut
costs.

FOR EXAMPLE:

One employee’s whole entry
five lines of writing suggesting that
drums be put at various place so
that used rags could be collected,
washed, and used over again.







Now this may be a’ good plan or













it may not. But surely that one
thing (which is really a sort of
Coin Your Idea suggestion) is not
the only way that employee can
find to cut costs a matter of
fact it has nothing to do with his
job or his work at all. And it
seems likely that employees who
think of more s than one to cut
costs will e the best chance to
win a prize.

There is nothing wrong with hay-
ing ideas in your essay like the
one about the drums for used rags.
Some good general ideas like that
could help to make any essay better
but if you have ONLY such general
ideas, then you are likely to be beaten
for a prize by other employees who
figured out several thi they could
really do THEMSELY to cut costs.







the Contest Committee doesn’t
think it is asking anything diffi-
e it is sure that

in this plant has
ays to cut costs actually on



his job, if he only thinks about
them. And the purpose of the con-
t is to start him thinking about

In a recent letter to United States President Harry S. Tru-
man, our Chairman of the Board Frank W. Abrams pledged the
full support of the Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) to the
government in these troubled times.

"Through its long experience in conducting a worldwide
business the Standard Oil Company (N.J.) has had opportunity
to observe the ills that flow from tyranny and the benefits that
come from human liberty... The management of this company
is ready to devote the organization's facilities, skills and equip-
ment to the full support of our Government against the forces
that threaten the nation’s security and world peace”.

Dear Mr. Abrams:

T have always known that when the country is
faced with difficulties the men in charge of

great business organizations are always ready

to do whatever is necessary to meet the situation,
I came in close contact with them in the Second
World War and | am thoroughly convinced that

all of them are patriots. You demonstrated

that by your letter of the twenty-sixth,

in a story reported by the LPD last

week. A clerk at the Light Oils Office
found Fls. 75 in an interoffice envel-
ope and promptly turned it in. The
Lago Police were notified, and some
investigating among the previous
addresses on the envelope finally
brought the money back to its right-
ful owner.

The owner had placed the money in
an envelope in his desk, and someone
had then taken an envelope for
mailing a report to the LOF office.
The receiver’s surprise at finding the
75 guilders along with the report
was exceeded only by his honesty in
seeing that the owner got it back.

Last week a painter rolled up his |
oily work clothes and put them in a |

wooden box along with a pair of |
safety shoes. |
The man left for home. That |

night, many hours later, the clothes
started to burn. The fire was found
and reported, but all that was left
of the wooden box and the clothes
was a pile of ashes. You can _ see
from the above picture that only
the tips of the safety shoes are left
(and a safety hat that was on top
of the box).

PUPPETS AND CHILDREN. More than 200 children attended the puppet
show and children’s party, sponsored by the Rotary Anns of Aruba, at
the Sociedad Bolivariana in Oranjestad August 24. Charging a smail admis-

children of Aruba. Popsicles, cake, popcorn and soda were on sale. Some of
the younger ones were entertained in the club playground while the
older ones enjoyed the show. Mrs. P. Wurtz of Oranjestad who put on the

SEPTEMBER 15, 1950

How much Rain

Do

The Rainclouds Drop ?

In the past eight months of 1950,
19.63 inches of rain have fallen, and
this year is well on its way to setting
new records in rainfall.

The total for August was .95
inches, a little higher than the aver-
age August rainfall for the past
twenty years (.74 inches).

Everyone talks about how much
rain is falling this year. Let’s look
at just how much really falls. Do
you know that it would take 2,650
supertankers te carry all the rain
that has fallen on Aruba so far in
1950! Figuring in barrels, the total
quantity 965,000 bar

In fact, the

rain that has

landed on Aruba since 1930 were put
into one of the big ships at the rate
of a full cargo each day, it would
take 147 years to finish the job.

On an average, approximat
four times as many barr Ort;

Hurricane Levels Island

The 130-mile an hour hurricane
which struck Antigua and near-by
islands August 31 and September 1,
leveled a greater part of that island,
leaving thousands homeless. Approx-
imately one million dollars worth
of damage was estimated on that
171-square-mile island alone.

In Phillipsburg, Dutch St. Martin
and Marigot, French St. Martin, the
water washed over the seawalls into
the towns and polluted the wells.
Residents are going into the hills
for drinking water.

Lago has 19 employees from An-
tigua; 70 from St. Kitts; 85 from
St. Eustatius; 168 from St. Martin
and 430 from Dutch St. Martin, all
potential victims of the big blow.

As communications are disrupted
total damage is still unknown. How-
ever, several employees whose homes
are in those islands have received
messages from their families

Relief Organizations

Several organizations have formed
in Aruba to bring relief to the
hurricane victims. Joe Arrindell is
chairman of the French Windward

assistant governor of French St.
Martin, were sent to the French

Families Express
Appreciation

Letters expressing appreciation for
opportunities given to their boys in
the vocational training program were
received from several families re-
cently. Two are reproduced below:

»Sirs: I take this opportunity to
extend my thanks and appreciation
to the Company and all the appren-
tice teachers, on behalf of my
nephew, Jan Wester, and his family.
My reason for sending in this special
word of thanks is because I am the
one directly responsible for him, as
his father died a long time ago. I
do hope that this being selected for
the r’s special training would
make all possible use of what has
been taught to him, and proving him-
self worthy of this great opportunity
given to him, so that on his return
his instructors shall all be proud of
him for a spot of work well done.
(signed) E. Wester, Yard Dept.”

»To the Management. Gentlemen:
I make special request which shall be
passed on to the Training Division. I
wish to thank Management for the
active steps taken for the boys of
Aruba, and especially for my son,
George Roosburg of the Garage, for
the opportunity he has been given
which if put into practice from the
four-year period that they have had
will make them the men of tomorrow.
Next the Training Division and its

| principals of the painstaking manner

of the boys and the great responsi-
bility that has been placed on their
shoulders. The graduation is a
stepping stone to firmer ground and
a mark in Lago and Aruba’s history.
Remaining your in interest, (signed)
Curlena Roosburg”.

Dodgers Lead League,
Braves Head B Division

The Dodgers Club, with Hanley
and Hoftyzer hurling from the
mound, has kept top position in the
Lago Sport Park Baseball Tourn-
ament. Four games won out of four |
played is the Dodgers’ record at the |
time of this writing a 1.000
percentage.

Baby Ruth, a constant threat to
the Dodgers, has played four, won
three, lost one.

The B Division is now headed by
the Aruba Braves who have won
two out of two, but the Cubs (played
three, won two, lost one) are close
behind.

Pedro and Jan
Are Interviewed On
Radio & Television

interviews, newspaper
radio and television inter-
views, an introduction to Yankee
baseball star Allie Reynolds, tours,
sight-seeing, shopping all. this
happened in just a few days to Pedro
Irausquin and Jan Wester, Lago’s
scholarship winners. They are in the
United States for a year’s study at
the Allentown (Pa.) Vocational High
School.

The two boys, accompanied by
E. F. Welch, Training, left Aruba
August 27, spent the night in Miami
and took the train the next day for
New York, arriving Tuesday, August

The boys enjoyed the train trip

l more than the flight from Aruba.

Their stay in New York was event-
ful from the word "go”. They had
been in their hotel room only ten
minutes when a reporter from The
New York Times” arrived for an
interview. The next thing on the
schedule was a radio interview at
NBC which was recorded and broad-
cast the next morning.

On Wednesday they were taken on
a personally conducted tour of NBC
and were interviewed on television.
The next day they went to a Yankee-
Cleveland baseball game. After the
game Pedro and Jan were introduced
to Allie Reynolds, star Yankee
pitcher, and a press photographer
took a picture of the boys and Allie.
Among their prize souvenirs are
baseballs which Allie autographed
for them.

Newspaper reporters and photo-
graphers met them when _ they
arrived in Allentown Friday. Do-
minico Britton and Francisco Dijk-
hoff, last year’s winners, are well-
known and well-remembered in Allen-
town. They have obviously made a
very creditable impression on the
folks in the town. As Mr. Welch took
Pedro and Jan around shopping and
visiting, many people inquired about
Dom and Frank and had only words
of praise for them.

After Pedro and Jan were settled
in their new home with Mr. and Mrs.
Donald Wilkinson, and school had
started, Mr. Welch returned to Aruba
last Sunday.

Sabaneta Soldiers
Give Variety Show
For Civilians

An Artillery Platoon of thirty-
four men from Camp Sabaneta put
on a Variety Show and dance at the
Camp August 31.

The 2%-hour show was given for
approximately 500 civilians in appre-
ciation of their cooperation and help
| given to the Armed Forces. Lt. Go-
| vernor and Mrs. L. C. Kwartsz were
among the guests.

In his welcoming message to the
audience C, O. Captain H. R. van der
Ham said that, true to tradition, they
were still celebrating Queen Wil-

‘helmina’s birthday on August 31
even though her daughter now held
the throne. He expressed thanks to
the civilians for their interest in the
Armed Forces.

The platoon which provided the
entertainment is commanded by Lt.
Carleton Lejuez. The thirty-four
men prepared everything themselves.
They built an open-air stage (which
will be retained for possible future
use); they wrote the play and
various sketches, and of course
played the parts. Also included in
the show were songs and jokes. The
director was Corporal W. L. Boer,
and Corporal Henri da Costa provided
the piano accompaniment. Corporal
da Costa also played a solo number.

The men had decorated the dance
floor for dancing to a fourpiece or-
chestra following the program. Re-
freshments were served during the
intermission and during the dancing.

No. 2 Finger Pier Opened

(Continued from page 1)

dock within a few
opening ceremony.
After an inspection of both piers
the guests adjourned to the Marine
Club to toast the occasion. In the
evening an informal dinner rounded
out the function.
Construction of the

minutes of the

total project





was begun in May, 1948, and on
the second pier, the final phase, in
December of last year. The design of



the piers was prey
Tippets Abbett Engineering Company
of New York.

The recently completed pier is a
dolphin type with roadway trestles
between four platforms, one for
loading and three for mooring. It
is a single-function pier handling oil

xd by Knappen






only, for discharge of crude and
loading of the finished, refined pro-
ducts. The first finger pier, which

was completed last December, is a
double-function pier, handling both
oil and dry cargo.

With the experience gained from
pile driving in the hard coral below
the harbor bottom during the con-
struction of the first pier, difficulties
along that line were held to a mini-
mum. The longest piles for each
pier weigh 12 tons and needed about
500 blows from a ten-ton hammer to
be driven into place, about 75 feet
below the bottom of the harbor. The
pile driver, "Aruba”, one of the
largest pile driver rigs ever built,
has now been dismantled.

On both piers huge spring fenders
help to absorb the shock of the
bumping and pushing of ships. For
instance, attached to the beams of
the loading platform of the dolphin
pier are 28 30-ton springs and on the
outshore end are 15 50-ton springs.

To help prevent cor on of the
steel piles, the hollow insides are
filled with oil. The holes are sealed





either with wooden plugs or by the
soil the pilings are driven into. Their
outsides are given a 1/16 inch
coat of coal tar paint. To reduce
corrosion on the pipe lines running
from piers to shore, the shore
ctions are insulated from the dock
s ions by either plastic sleeves or
transite pipe. These act as insulating
mediums so steel of different electri-
cal potentials will not touch.

The completion of these two piers,

each of which can handle two.
)00 ton ocean -going tankers at
the same time, means that crude
from Amuay Bay can now be carried
in T-2 tankers, super tankers or the
lake tankers. Formerly all crude was
brought from Lake Maracaibo by the
shallow-draft tanker fleet.

With the completion of this harbor
construction program, Lago increases
its efficiency in supplying world oil
necds, and San Nicolas harbor con-
tinues its important position as one
of the leading harbors in the world
in amount of tonnage handled.

Some statistics on the new pier:

More than 1600 tons of structural
steel and piling was used.

It is 944 ft. from the shore abut-
ment to the end of the dolphin.

It contains more than 1100 cubic
yds. of concrete.
















Twenty-four pipelines service the
pier.
There are almost four miles of

piping on the pier.

More than 20,000 gallons of paint
was used.

The longest pile is 120 ft.

Nearly two miles of fender wood
and wooden piling was used.

The pier can handle crude oil, fuel
oil, gas oil, diesel oil, bunker fuel,

motor gasoline, kerosene, asphalt,
shiphold water, boiler water and
drinking water.

BRONZE PLAQUE commemorating the harbor reconstruction project was
unveiled at ceremonies held September 1.

Bl ieice a good look at the picture

Automobiles can’t occupy the same

their own death warrants. A collision

company equipment was bad. It was
so bad that action was imperative.










In considering wa to improve
driving, management realized two
important facts. (1) That safety

depends primarily on the man behind
the wheel... (2) That the wer to
most daily traffic hazards can be
found in ”Defensive Driving”.

To bring home safety to the men
behind the wheels, the Lago Safe
Driving Contest was started on






shine, Lago drivers must be alert.

January 3, 1939. Each driver who
completed three months without a
safety violation received Fls. 10. Also
at the end of each safe year of
driving, each driver received a safe
driving emblem.

When the contest began there were
120 drivers participating. Seventy-
five percent of them drove safely,
but twenty-five percent were disqua-
lified for the things that might
happen to any of us if we are not
careful. There was room for impro-
vement.

The contest has now been running
for eleven and one-half years, and
each year Lago has paid out more
and more in prizes as the accidents
decrease. As of June 1950, 6,069

d been distributed total
90... an ave > of better
than Fls. 5000 each year.
The contest cost money, but ma-
nagement was happy to nend it.
Let’s take a look at the record.



In the year after the contest took
effect there was only one injury to
a pedestrian through the fault of a
Lago driver. And there has not been

one since!
Collisions have been cut by 80

percent.

Now, in 1950, there is only one-
third as much speeding and reckless
driving.

There has been no case of a vehicle
being overloaded since 1940.

These facts mean something when



you realize that four of Lago’s
drive have had eleven and one-
half years without an accident. That’s



a lot of driving. Ruperto Angela, Jan
S. Croes, Eugenio Koolman, and
Armand Peters have piled up 115,000
safe hours behind the wheel.

The record of these four and the
many other safe d srs of Lago is
more than just driving without acci-
dents. Some of the other violations
which might have disqualified them
are: soliciting and accepting unauth-
orized riders, overloading vehicle,
failure to report accidents, Govern-
ment license revoked, etc.

The Safe Driving Contest has
d,, through rewarding good
rs, that recognition of the man
behind the wheel can save lives and
equipment.

Management also recognized that
"Defensive Driving” can reduce daily























traffic hazards. Like a good boxer or
a soldier, the defensive driver is al-
ready for the mistakes other



drivers might make.

Both driver and vehicle must be in
good condition. (That’s why AWOL’s,
which overl the working schedule










for other drivers, count a men
in the contest). Windshields must be
cleaned, brakes checked, and the
load, if any, securely fastened.

On the road, the driver is watching

This is being done because the
first hundred ays received show
that many employees may not
understand the contest fully:

1 — Many are writing down only
thing about cutting costs.

— Many are writing only about
things that their department or the
Company or somebody else could do
to cut costs — but they are forget-
ting to write about what they them-
selves, in their work, can do to cut
costs.

FOR EXAMPLE:

One employee’s whole entry
five lines of writing suggesting that
drums be put at various place so
that used rags could be collected,
washed, and used over again.







Now this may be a’ good plan or













it may not. But surely that one
thing (which is really a sort of
Coin Your Idea suggestion) is not
the only way that employee can
find to cut costs a matter of
fact it has nothing to do with his
job or his work at all. And it
seems likely that employees who
think of more s than one to cut
costs will e the best chance to
win a prize.

There is nothing wrong with hay-
ing ideas in your essay like the
one about the drums for used rags.
Some good general ideas like that
could help to make any essay better
but if you have ONLY such general
ideas, then you are likely to be beaten
for a prize by other employees who
figured out several thi they could
really do THEMSELY to cut costs.

In a recent letter to United States President Harry S. Tru-

full support of the Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) to the
government in these troubled times.

"Through its long experience in conducting a worldwide
business the Standard Oil Company (N.J.) has had opportunity
to observe the ills that flow from tyranny and the benefits that
come from human liberty... The management of this company
is ready to devote the organization's facilities, skills and equip-
ment to the full support of our Government against the forces
that threaten the nation’s security and world peace”.

found Fls. 75 in an interoffice envel-

Lago Police were notified, and some
investigating among the previous

The owner had placed the money in
an envelope in his desk, and someone
had then taken an envelope for

The receiver’s surprise at finding the

How much Rain

Do

The Rainclouds Drop ?

In the past eight months of 1950,
19.63 inches of rain have fallen, and
this year is well on its way to setting
new records in rainfall.

The total for August was .95
inches, a little higher than the aver-
age August rainfall for the past
twenty years (.74 inches).

Everyone talks about how much
rain is falling this year. Let’s look
at just how much really falls. Do
you know that it would take 2,650
supertankers te carry all the rain
that has fallen on Aruba so far in
1950! Figuring in barrels, the total
quantity 965,000 bar

In fact, the

rain that has

landed on Aruba since 1930 were put
into one of the big ships at the rate
of a full cargo each day, it would
take 147 years to finish the job.

Hurricane Levels Island

The 130-mile an hour hurricane
which struck Antigua and near-by
islands August 31 and September 1,
leveled a greater part of that island,
leaving thousands homeless. Approx-
imately one million dollars worth
of damage was estimated on that
171-square-mile island alone.

In Phillipsburg, Dutch St. Martin
and Marigot, French St. Martin, the
water washed over the seawalls into
the towns and polluted the wells.
Residents are going into the hills
for drinking water.

Lago has 19 employees from An-
tigua; 70 from St. Kitts; 85 from
St. Eustatius; 168 from St. Martin
and 430 from Dutch St. Martin, all
potential victims of the big blow.

As communications are disrupted
total damage is still unknown. How-
ever, several employees whose homes
are in those islands have received
messages from their families

friends. Hubert Richardson ‘and

Relief Organizations

Several organizations have formed
in Aruba to bring relief to the
hurricane victims. Joe Arrindell is
chairman of the French Windward
Island Relief Committee. A cable
and follow-up letter from L. Hyman,
assistant governor of French St.
Martin, were sent to the French

Families Express
Appreciation

Letters expressing appreciation for
opportunities given to their boys in
the vocational training program were
received from several families re-
cently. Two are reproduced below:

»Sirs: I take this opportunity to
extend my thanks and appreciation
to the Company and all the appren-
tice teachers, on behalf of my
nephew, Jan Wester, and his family.
My reason for sending in this special
word of thanks is because I am the
one directly responsible for him, as
his father died a long time ago. I
do hope that this being selected for
the r’s special training would
make all possible use of what has
been taught to him, and proving him-
self worthy of this great opportunity
given to him, so that on his return
his instructors shall all be proud of
him for a spot of work well done.
(signed) E. Wester, Yard Dept.”

»To the Management. Gentlemen:
I make special request which shall be
passed on to the Training Division. I
wish to thank Management for the
active steps taken for the boys of
Aruba, and especially for my son,
George Roosburg of the Garage, for
the opportunity he has been given
which if put into practice from the
four-year period that they have had
will make them the men of tomorrow.

| principals of the painstaking manner

of the boys and the great responsi-
bility that has been placed on their
shoulders. The graduation is a
stepping stone to firmer ground and
a mark in Lago and Aruba’s history.

Dodgers Lead League,
Braves Head B Division

The Dodgers Club, with Hanley
and Hoftyzer hurling from the
mound, has kept top position in the
Lago Sport Park Baseball Tourn-
ament. Four games won out of four |
played is the Dodgers’ record at the |
time of this writing a 1.000
percentage.

Baby Ruth, a constant threat to
the Dodgers, has played four, won
three, lost one.

The B Division is now headed by
the Aruba Braves who have won
two out of two, but the Cubs (played
three, won two, lost one) are close
behind.

Pedro and Jan
Are Interviewed On
Radio & Television

interviews, newspaper
radio and television inter-
views, an introduction to Yankee
baseball star Allie Reynolds, tours,
sight-seeing, shopping all. this
happened in just a few days to Pedro
Irausquin and Jan Wester, Lago’s
scholarship winners. They are in the
United States for a year’s study at
the Allentown (Pa.) Vocational High
School.

The two boys, accompanied by
E. F. Welch, Training, left Aruba
August 27, spent the night in Miami
and took the train the next day for
New York, arriving Tuesday, August

The boys enjoyed the train trip

l more than the flight from Aruba.

Their stay in New York was event-
ful from the word "go”. They had
been in their hotel room only ten
minutes when a reporter from The
New York Times” arrived for an
interview. The next thing on the
schedule was a radio interview at
NBC which was recorded and broad-
cast the next morning.

On Wednesday they were taken on
a personally conducted tour of NBC
and were interviewed on television.
The next day they went to a Yankee-
Cleveland baseball game. After the
game Pedro and Jan were introduced
to Allie Reynolds, star Yankee
pitcher, and a press photographer
took a picture of the boys and Allie.
Among their prize souvenirs are
baseballs which Allie autographed
for them.

Newspaper reporters and photo-
graphers met them when _ they
arrived in Allentown Friday. Do-
minico Britton and Francisco Dijk-
hoff, last year’s winners, are well-
known and well-remembered in Allen-
town. They have obviously made a
very creditable impression on the
folks in the town. As Mr. Welch took
Pedro and Jan around shopping and
visiting, many people inquired about
Dom and Frank and had only words
of praise for them.

After Pedro and Jan were settled
in their new home with Mr. and Mrs.
Donald Wilkinson, and school had
started, Mr. Welch returned to Aruba
last Sunday.

Sabaneta Soldiers
Give Variety Show
For Civilians

An Artillery Platoon of thirty-
four men from Camp Sabaneta put
on a Variety Show and dance at the
Camp August 31.

The 2%-hour show was given for
approximately 500 civilians in appre-
ciation of their cooperation and help
| given to the Armed Forces. Lt. Go-
| vernor and Mrs. L. C. Kwartsz were
among the guests.

In his welcoming message to the
audience C, O. Captain H. R. van der
Ham said that, true to tradition, they
were still celebrating Queen Wil-

‘helmina’s birthday on August 31
even though her daughter now held
the throne. He expressed thanks to
the civilians for their interest in the
Armed Forces.

The platoon which provided the
entertainment is commanded by Lt.
Carleton Lejuez. The thirty-four
men prepared everything themselves.
They built an open-air stage (which
will be retained for possible future
use); they wrote the play and
various sketches, and of course
played the parts. Also included in
the show were songs and jokes. The
director was Corporal W. L. Boer,
and Corporal Henri da Costa provided
the piano accompaniment. Corporal
da Costa also played a solo number.

The men had decorated the dance
floor for dancing to a fourpiece or-
chestra following the program. Re-
freshments were served during the
intermission and during the dancing.

No. 2 Finger Pier Opened

(Continued from page 1)

dock within a few
opening ceremony.
After an inspection of both piers
the guests adjourned to the Marine
Club to toast the occasion. In the
evening an informal dinner rounded
out the function.
Construction of the

minutes of the

total project





was begun in May, 1948, and on
the second pier, the final phase, in
December of last year. The design of



the piers was prey
Tippets Abbett Engineering Company
of New York.

The recently completed pier is a
dolphin type with roadway trestles
between four platforms, one for
loading and three for mooring. It
is a single-function pier handling oil

xd by Knappen






only, for discharge of crude and
loading of the finished, refined pro-
ducts. The first finger pier, which

was completed last December, is a
double-function pier, handling both
oil and dry cargo.

With the experience gained from
pile driving in the hard coral below
the harbor bottom during the con-
struction of the first pier, difficulties
along that line were held to a mini-
mum. The longest piles for each
pier weigh 12 tons and needed about
500 blows from a ten-ton hammer to
be driven into place, about 75 feet
below the bottom of the harbor. The
pile driver, "Aruba”, one of the
largest pile driver rigs ever built,
has now been dismantled.

On both piers huge spring fenders
help to absorb the shock of the
bumping and pushing of ships. For
instance, attached to the beams of
the loading platform of the dolphin
pier are 28 30-ton springs and on the
outshore end are 15 50-ton springs.

To help prevent cor on of the
steel piles, the hollow insides are
filled with oil. The holes are sealed





either with wooden plugs or by the
soil the pilings are driven into. Their
outsides are given a 1/16 inch
coat of coal tar paint. To reduce
corrosion on the pipe lines running
from piers to shore, the shore
ctions are insulated from the dock
s ions by either plastic sleeves or
transite pipe. These act as insulating
mediums so steel of different electri-
cal potentials will not touch.

The completion of these two piers,

each of which can handle two.
)00 ton ocean -going tankers at
the same time, means that crude
from Amuay Bay can now be carried
in T-2 tankers, super tankers or the
lake tankers. Formerly all crude was
brought from Lake Maracaibo by the
shallow-draft tanker fleet.

With the completion of this harbor
construction program, Lago increases
its efficiency in supplying world oil
necds, and San Nicolas harbor con-
tinues its important position as one
of the leading harbors in the world
in amount of tonnage handled.

Some statistics on the new pier:

More than 1600 tons of structural
steel and piling was used.

It is 944 ft. from the shore abut-
ment to the end of the dolphin.

It contains more than 1100 cubic
yds. of concrete.
















Twenty-four pipelines service the
pier.
There are almost four miles of

piping on the pier.

More than 20,000 gallons of paint
was used.

The longest pile is 120 ft.

Nearly two miles of fender wood
and wooden piling was used.

The pier can handle crude oil, fuel
oil, gas oil, diesel oil, bunker fuel,

motor gasoline, kerosene, asphalt,
shiphold water, boiler water and
drinking water.

BRONZE PLAQUE commemorating the harbor reconstruction project was
unveiled at ceremonies held September 1.

115,000 Hours Behind the Wheel Without An Accident

ARUBA ESSO NEWS









AROUND THE CLOCK

safety rules are practiced.

This night picture shows a steady stream of car and

truck

headlights coming

from Gate 3. (The higher

streaks are bus top lights). Night or day, rain or



Bl ieice a good look at the picture
above. It shows the main road out of
Gate 8 at night with a bright white
path where car and truck headlights
passed the camera. The picture may




fool you, because it makes it look
as though the cars had occupied the
same space at the same _ time.

(Actually the cars passed at intervals
of minutes).

Automobiles can’t occupy the same
space at the same time. When drivers
forget this, they might as well sign
their own death warrants. A collision
is sure to result!







Collisions and accidents for Lago
drivers were a sure thing twelve
years ago too.

In 1938 management could look
forward gloomily to damage to
equipment, personal injuries to pe-
destrians, speeding and_ reckless
driving, ete.

The safety record of the many

men who spent long hours driving
company equipment was bad. It was
so bad that action was imperative.










In considering wa to improve
driving, management realized two
important facts. (1) That safety

depends primarily on the man behind
the wheel... (2) That the wer to
most daily traffic hazards can be
found in ”Defensive Driving”.

To bring home safety to the men
behind the wheels, the Lago Safe
Driving Contest was started on






shine, Lago drivers must be alert.

January 3, 1939. Each driver who
completed three months without a
safety violation received Fls. 10. Also
at the end of each safe year of
driving, each driver received a safe
driving emblem.

When the contest began there were
120 drivers participating. Seventy-
five percent of them drove safely,
but twenty-five percent were disqua-
lified for the things that might
happen to any of us if we are not
careful. There was room for impro-
vement.

The contest has now been running
for eleven and one-half years, and
each year Lago has paid out more
and more in prizes as the accidents
decrease. As of June 1950, 6,069







0,











d been distributed total
90... an ave > of better
than Fls. 5000 each year.
The contest cost money, but ma-
nagement was happy to nend it.
Let’s take a look at the record.



In the year after the contest took
effect there was only one injury to
a pedestrian through the fault of a
Lago driver. And there has not been

one since!
Collisions have been cut by 80

percent.

Now, in 1950, there is only one-
third as much speeding and reckless
driving.

There has been no case of a vehicle
being overloaded since 1940.

Defensive Driving Saves Lives

These facts mean something when



you realize that four of Lago’s
drive have had eleven and one-
half years without an accident. That’s



a lot of driving. Ruperto Angela, Jan
S. Croes, Eugenio Koolman, and
Armand Peters have piled up 115,000
safe hours behind the wheel.

The record of these four and the
many other safe d srs of Lago is
more than just driving without acci-
dents. Some of the other violations
which might have disqualified them
are: soliciting and accepting unauth-
orized riders, overloading vehicle,
failure to report accidents, Govern-
ment license revoked, etc.

The Safe Driving Contest has
d,, through rewarding good
rs, that recognition of the man
behind the wheel can save lives and
equipment.

Management also recognized that
"Defensive Driving” can reduce daily























traffic hazards. Like a good boxer or
a soldier, the defensive driver is al-
ready for the mistakes other



drivers might make.

Both driver and vehicle must be in
good condition. (That’s why AWOL’s,
which overl the working schedule










for other drivers, count a men
in the contest). Windshields must be
cleaned, brakes checked, and the
load, if any, securely fastened.

On the road, the driver is watching
and ready for errors by _ other
