THE HOSPITAL WALL crumbles under pressure of a bulldozer. The wall

is being remoyed in preparation

for

temporar parking and entrance

facilities during construction of the new fireproof wing.
MURAYA DI HOSPITAL ta cai abao di precicion di un bulldozer. Muraya
ta worde kita pa prepara lugar tempral di park y entrada durante con-
struccion di e ala nobo di fireproof.

Work is Begun on New
Fireproof Hospital Wing

Early this month work was begun on the new hospital extension.
The need for new facilities has been felt for some time. The new wing
will provide not only fireproof and completely modern facilities for
all in-patients, but will also release additional space in the present

building for administrative offices
and better and more adequate work-
ing conditions for hospital employ-
ees.

The new three-story all fireproof
extension will be attached to sec-
tions C and D of the present struc-
ture, in the front. Fire doors will
connect the new with the old. Built
of concrete and concrete block, the
new wing will be ft. long by
41 ft. wide. It will have a bed ca-

y of 116.

The wall around the hospital is
being removed to make space for a
parking 2 during the construc-
tion. The temporary parking area is
at the rear or south side, and the
entrance is at the rear of the re-
ception lobby

lt is anticipated that the new
building will be completed early in
1952 and will cost approximately
two million guilders. After that the
present hospital will be remodeled
and the present kitchen wing and
section B removed. The remaining
sections will then be 2d for office
administration, doctor’s offices, kit-
chen and services, X-ray, pharmacy,
laboratory, surgery and out-patient
clinies.

In the new section each floor will
be a separate, self-sufficient unit.
The first floor will be surgical. (The
operating rooms will remain in the
present building). The second floor
will be medical and the third floor
obstetrical. There will be bedrooms
(each with a private bath), lobby,
all associated service rooms such as
utility room and service kitchen,
and a louvered sun porch on _ each!
floor. On the ground or first floor
will be a large lobby and waiting
room and an open sun deck for pa-
tients off the courtyard.

There will be two entrance to the
hospital. The main entrance will be
at the east connection of the pre-
sent section C and the new wing.
The clinie entrance will be at the
rear of the present reception room
after the kitchen wing is removed.

In addition to a main stairway
and two fire escape stairways it i
planned to have two hydraulic ele-
vators, one for the hospital staff
and one for the public. It is felt
that hydraulic elevators are more
suitable for a hospital than electric
because they are quieter and
smoother running.

The new wing is designed to take

Survivor
Benefits
Expanded

Survivors of Annuitants

Under provisions of the new Sur-
vivor Benefit Plan, death benefits
will henceforth be paid to survivors
of Lago and Esso Transportation
Company annuitants. The new Plan,
whose provisions are effective as of
Janua 1, 1950, is the outcome of
discussions with the Special Pro-
blems Advisory Committee, which
felt that provisions should be made
for survivors of annuitants.

The new Plan continues the exist-
ing Death Benefit Plan practically
unchanged; the only major new pro-
vision is in the section providing for
payment of benefits to survivors of
annuitants.

(The Plan is being printed in
English and Papiamento; copies of
the booklet will be passed out to em-
ployees next month. In addition,

Difficult Job Aids
In Catalyst Shortage

A possible reduction of operations
at the Cat Cracker was avoided ear-
ly this month with a_ outstanding
repair job by men of the electrical
and process departments. They suc-
ceeded in removing three broken
electrodes which were short-circuit-
ing the system in the Cottrell Pre-
cipitator. This was a new accom-
plishment, and was carried out under
difficult conditions.

As a result of their work, the loss
of catalyst from the PCAR unit was
reduced by approximately two to
three tons a day. Keeping this loss
down is of unusual importance at
this time because of widespread
shortage of catalyst. The reduction
in lk brings the consumption of
catalyst within the present quota of
catalyst supplies.

Management’s appreciation has
been extended to the employees in-
volved for a job well done. Their
work undoubtedly avoided a reduc-
tion in Cat Crac operations at a
time when a serious shortage of
gasoline and other products exists.

\Old Jingle Gives Key
'to Storm Schedule

The current heat wave is an un-
pleasant subject but a common one,
| lorming a large percentage of daily
| conversation in recent weeks.

Aruba’s hottest time of the year
is closely tied in with the hurricanes
| that lash up northwestward from the
Caribbean each year about this time;
| fortunately they never touch Aruba,
| but often wreak havoc on the islands
to the north, or sections of the
United States east coast.

The usual strong northeast trad-
ewind stops, and gentle breezes move
lazily in odd directions; or the aiz
may be completely dead, and smoke







rises straight up, a rare sight in
Aruba.

Any reader who is not lving in
a deep-freeze knows all this, of

course; what we are getting at is the
fact that the Esso News has no
meteorological department; it cannot
tell why our wind, at a point from
500 to a thousand miles away from
the storm center, should vanish as
| soon as there is a hurricane.
We can, however, tell our perspir-
ing readers that there is an old jingle
by which they can tell in advance
when they are going to be uncomfor-
| table because of the hurricane sea-|

REMEMBER — write about what

Water for All Time

Mangel Cora Well - Lago’s Timeless

Contribution to Aruba’s Future is

a 2134 Foot Tunnel under the Coral.

<5

“One* thousand yedrs from today, con-
ditions may be entirely changed in Aruba.
The seacoast may be shaped differently;
the roads, the houses, the buildings may
all’ be- new. If, for instance, the oil re-
sourceS of Venezuela are exhausted by
that far-distant time, the importance of
Lago to Aruba may be just a memory. But
theâ„¢people will still be getting water from
Mangel Cora well.

In.terms of centuries, Mangel Cora is the
most~ permanent improvement Lago has
given to Aruba. No matter what the eco-
nomy of the island, fresh water is vital to
Aruba, And the construction of the well
will provide a never-ending source of fresh
water so long as it continues to rain.

Much of the rain that falls on Aruba
runs into the sea, In a few places, because
of,the natural formation of the land, it is
trapped by hard layers of rock under the
coral and held temporarily in storage. Pro-
bably the largest of these developed natural
"reservoirs” is found near Colorado Point
at the east end of the island.

To the average person the ground in this
section looks like land anywhere else in
Aruba. When rain falls, it quickly soaks
into the porus coral and disappears. But
there is a difference!

Deep under the coral from Colorado
Point to the commissary are large layers
of granite rock forming a huge basin about
a mile slong and a mile wide. The area
works just like a sponge on a dinner plate.
eanes the coral collects water like a sponge...
the granite keeps the water from flowing
into the sea too quickly. Lago engineers
estimate that the formation collects rain
water from a square mile and can hold
more than 2,500,000 barrels of fresh water.

Before the dawn of history natural
springs existed in this basin area. These
springs were overflowing during the rainy
seasons, hut were probably dry during
other parts of the year.

As, civilization came to Aruba, these





ation in the ”"Mangel Cora basin” area
when Lago first arrived. (This area is
bounded by Colorado Point, the hospital,
hospital road, colony commissary, the Com-
munity Church, and the lagoons.)

When the refinery was being built, more
fresh water was needed than the windmill
pumps could supply. (The output of all the
wells was collected by a small piping sys-
tem and delivered through a single steel
line to the old stone reservoir near the pre-
sent M & C shops.)

Mangel Cora well (one of the ten) had
proved to be the only consistent producer
of acceptable water. But it could not pro-
duce enough. When too much water was
drawn out, sea water flowed into the well.
Except after heavy rains, the average sam-
ple was about one third sea-water.

Several methods were used to improve
this well, and over the years have boosted
its supply of fresh water from 1000 barrels
or less to more than 5000 barrels a day,
And the improvements are permanent. Man-
gel Cora will yield water for Aruba in-
definitely.

Lago used the same methods which work-
ed well in Europe, Southern California and
other states, the Hawaian Islands, and
other Pacific islands. One of these is the
skimming” tunnel which runs out from
the bottom of the well under the ground at
sea level. This increases the area that
water can be pumped from, and acts like
many wells instead of just one.

By the end of 1930, all the ten wells ex-
cept the Mangel Cora were abandoned. The
present pump station had been built, and a
200 foot water-collecting tunnel was in ser-
vice. This tunnel has been extended through
the years until now it runs nearly half a
mile under the coral.

Early in the work it was found practical
to drill holes and pump a concrete mixture
into the coral to form an underground dam
or grout line” between the tunnel and the
ocean. The concrete helps to fill the holes

you will be governed by this need”.
The judges assembled September 1

Survivor Benefits
(Continued from page

visors with details of the Plan.)
The number of payments and the



(Continued from page 1)

amount depend on the age of the |
annuitant at the time of his death.
The younger the annuitant is when

he dies, the more payments his sur-
vivors will receive. In no case, how-
ever, will his dependents receive

less than half of the payments due |
(Vhe table at |
Reason for |

when he first retired.
bottom illustrates this.)
this is that the younger man will
usually have obligations to
contribute to someone else’s support



than the older man will.
Here is an example of how the
plan works for an annuitant. Sup-

pose a single employee who is earn-
ing Fls. 400 a month retires at the
age of 60. Two years later he dies.
During the year before he died, he
was contributing support amount-
ing to Fls. 50 each month to two
relatives. In this example, 90 per
cent of the amount payable to this
annuitant’s dependents when he first
retired is now due (according to the
schedule for annuitants), since he
died two years after retirement.
Thus, 90 per cent of one year’s sup-
port to his relatives amounts to
FIs. 1080. Each of his relativ
would then receive monthly payments
until Fls. 1080 is paid.

If the above annuitant we
married and left a widow, she
would receive 90 per cent of a year’s
pay as of the last day he worked
tor the Company, or Ils. 4320.
would receive payments each month
until a total of FIs. 4320 was paid.





Thus, the payments made would be |

as follows:



Single Annuitant
Firt relative Fis. 540 |
Second relative Fls. 540
Total Fils. 1080)

Married Annuitant



Widow Fis. 4820
Provisions for Survivors
of Employees
Provisions in the former Death



Benefit Plan are incorporated into the
new Survivor Benefit Plan practically
unchanged. (Effective with the
adoption of this new Plan, the old
Death Benefit Plan is cancelled). In}
addition to the new section providing |
for benefits to the survivors of an- |
nuitants, monthly payments will be



made as in the past to the survivors,



of deceased employees and >
employees who have one or more
years’ service. (Employees are all




Staff and Regular employees

an ex-emplo: one terminated
because of d and who dies
vithin one y result of such
disability; an annuitant is one who
retires under Part V of the Retire-
ment Plan - this does not include
those with a deferred annuity

Payments of survivor benefits will
be made in this order: to the spouse,
then children, then parent These
people are called the "beneficiaries”.
However, an emplo request |
that any of th p luded |
as a beneficiary and his request will
be considered by the Administrative
Committee that will administer the
Plan. If the employee is not survived
by a wife, children, or parents, an.
one regularly supported by him du
ing the year pr ing his death |
would be his bene

The amount to be paid to benefi-
ciaries of employees and ex-employ-
ees will be based on the following
table:

An example of how this Plan works
for the survivors of employees is as
follow A married employee with
10 years service dies, He was earn-
ing Fls. 400 a month when he died.
His family included a wife and two
| dependent children ages 12 and +7
Under the Survivor Benefit iian,
this employee’s family would ke eu-
titled to benefits amounting to one
year’s earnings, or Fls. 4800. This
amount would be paid monthly over
a period of two years. Each month,
one-half of the deceased’s monthly
earnings would go to his family, or
Fls. 200 a month. Suppose, for
example, that the widow of this de-
| ceased employee should die after she
had received Fls. 200 a month for
six months. The children would the.
be entitled to the remaining 18 pay-





ments. These would be divided so
|that each child would receive
Fils. 100 per month until the old

child beeame 18 years old. Then the
younger child would receive the full
Fils. 200 each month until all 24 pay-
ments were made to the entire fami-
\ly. This family would have received
the following amounts:

widow -

|6 payments of Fls. 200, or Fls. 1200
| older child -

6 payments of Fls. 100, or Fls.
younger child -

6 payments of Fls. 100, plus
12 payments of Fls. 200, or Fls. 300(

600



Total Fls.

Each payment will not exceed one-

| half the deceased’s monthly

earnings as of the last day worked.

If no beneficiaries qualify for

survivor benefits, up to Fls. 200 will

be given for burial expenses of the
deceased.

THE HOSPITAL WALL crumbles under pressure of a bulldozer. The wall

is being remoyed in preparation

for

temporar parking and entrance

facilities during construction of the new fireproof wing.
MURAYA DI HOSPITAL ta cai abao di precicion di un bulldozer. Muraya
ta worde kita pa prepara lugar tempral di park y entrada durante con-
struccion di e ala nobo di fireproof.

Work is Begun on New
Fireproof Hospital Wing

Early this month work was begun on the new hospital extension.
The need for new facilities has been felt for some time. The new wing
will provide not only fireproof and completely modern facilities for
all in-patients, but will also release additional space in the present

building for administrative offices
and better and more adequate work-
ing conditions for hospital employ-
ees.

The new three-story all fireproof
extension will be attached to sec-
tions C and D of the present struc-
ture, in the front. Fire doors will
connect the new with the old. Built
of concrete and concrete block, the
new wing will be ft. long by
41 ft. wide. It will have a bed ca-

y of 116.

The wall around the hospital is
being removed to make space for a
parking 2 during the construc-
tion. The temporary parking area is
at the rear or south side, and the
entrance is at the rear of the re-
ception lobby

lt is anticipated that the new
building will be completed early in
1952 and will cost approximately
two million guilders. After that the
present hospital will be remodeled
and the present kitchen wing and
section B removed. The remaining
sections will then be 2d for office
administration, doctor’s offices, kit-
chen and services, X-ray, pharmacy,
laboratory, surgery and out-patient
clinies.

In the new section each floor will
be a separate, self-sufficient unit.
The first floor will be surgical. (The
operating rooms will remain in the
present building). The second floor
will be medical and the third floor
obstetrical. There will be bedrooms
(each with a private bath), lobby,
all associated service rooms such as
utility room and service kitchen,
and a louvered sun porch on _ each!
floor. On the ground or first floor
will be a large lobby and waiting
room and an open sun deck for pa-
tients off the courtyard.

There will be two entrance to the
hospital. The main entrance will be
at the east connection of the pre-
sent section C and the new wing.
The clinie entrance will be at the
rear of the present reception room
after the kitchen wing is removed.

In addition to a main stairway
and two fire escape stairways it i
planned to have two hydraulic ele-
vators, one for the hospital staff
and one for the public. It is felt
that hydraulic elevators are more
suitable for a hospital than electric
because they are quieter and
smoother running.

The new wing is designed to take

Survivor
Benefits
Expanded

Survivors of Annuitants

Under provisions of the new Sur-
vivor Benefit Plan, death benefits
will henceforth be paid to survivors
of Lago and Esso Transportation
Company annuitants. The new Plan,
whose provisions are effective as of
Janua 1, 1950, is the outcome of
discussions with the Special Pro-
blems Advisory Committee, which
felt that provisions should be made
for survivors of annuitants.

The new Plan continues the exist-
ing Death Benefit Plan practically
unchanged; the only major new pro-
vision is in the section providing for
payment of benefits to survivors of
annuitants.

(The Plan is being printed in
English and Papiamento; copies of
the booklet will be passed out to em-
ployees next month. In addition,

Difficult Job Aids
In Catalyst Shortage

A possible reduction of operations
at the Cat Cracker was avoided ear-
ly this month with a_ outstanding
repair job by men of the electrical
and process departments. They suc-
ceeded in removing three broken
electrodes which were short-circuit-
ing the system in the Cottrell Pre-
cipitator. This was a new accom-
plishment, and was carried out under
difficult conditions.

As a result of their work, the loss
of catalyst from the PCAR unit was
reduced by approximately two to
three tons a day. Keeping this loss
down is of unusual importance at
this time because of widespread
shortage of catalyst. The reduction
in lk brings the consumption of
catalyst within the present quota of
catalyst supplies.

Management’s appreciation has
been extended to the employees in-
volved for a job well done. Their
work undoubtedly avoided a reduc-
tion in Cat Crac operations at a
time when a serious shortage of
gasoline and other products exists.

\Old Jingle Gives Key

The current heat wave is an un-
pleasant subject but a common one,

| conversation in recent weeks.

Aruba’s hottest time of the year
is closely tied in with the hurricanes

Caribbean each year about this time;

| but often wreak havoc on the islands
to the north, or sections of the
United States east coast.

The usual strong northeast trad-

lazily in odd directions; or the aiz
may be completely dead, and smoke







rises straight up, a rare sight in

Water for All Time

Mangel Cora Well - Lago’s Timeless

Contribution to Aruba’s Future is

a 2134 Foot Tunnel under the Coral.

<5

“One* thousand yedrs from today, con-
ditions may be entirely changed in Aruba.
The seacoast may be shaped differently;
the roads, the houses, the buildings may
all’ be- new. If, for instance, the oil re-
sourceS of Venezuela are exhausted by
that far-distant time, the importance of
Lago to Aruba may be just a memory. But
theâ„¢people will still be getting water from
Mangel Cora well.

In.terms of centuries, Mangel Cora is the
most~ permanent improvement Lago has
given to Aruba. No matter what the eco-
nomy of the island, fresh water is vital to
Aruba, And the construction of the well
will provide a never-ending source of fresh
water so long as it continues to rain.

Much of the rain that falls on Aruba
runs into the sea, In a few places, because
of,the natural formation of the land, it is
trapped by hard layers of rock under the
coral and held temporarily in storage. Pro-
bably the largest of these developed natural
"reservoirs” is found near Colorado Point
at the east end of the island.

To the average person the ground in this
section looks like land anywhere else in
Aruba. When rain falls, it quickly soaks
into the porus coral and disappears. But
there is a difference!

Deep under the coral from Colorado
Point to the commissary are large layers
of granite rock forming a huge basin about
a mile slong and a mile wide. The area
works just like a sponge on a dinner plate.
eanes the coral collects water like a sponge...
the granite keeps the water from flowing
into the sea too quickly. Lago engineers
estimate that the formation collects rain
water from a square mile and can hold
more than 2,500,000 barrels of fresh water.

Before the dawn of history natural
springs existed in this basin area. These
springs were overflowing during the rainy
seasons, hut were probably dry during
other parts of the year.

As, civilization came to Aruba, these





ation in the ”"Mangel Cora basin” area
when Lago first arrived. (This area is
bounded by Colorado Point, the hospital,
hospital road, colony commissary, the Com-
munity Church, and the lagoons.)

When the refinery was being built, more
fresh water was needed than the windmill
pumps could supply. (The output of all the
wells was collected by a small piping sys-
tem and delivered through a single steel
line to the old stone reservoir near the pre-
sent M & C shops.)

Mangel Cora well (one of the ten) had
proved to be the only consistent producer
of acceptable water. But it could not pro-
duce enough. When too much water was
drawn out, sea water flowed into the well.
Except after heavy rains, the average sam-
ple was about one third sea-water.

Several methods were used to improve
this well, and over the years have boosted
its supply of fresh water from 1000 barrels
or less to more than 5000 barrels a day,
And the improvements are permanent. Man-
gel Cora will yield water for Aruba in-
definitely.

Lago used the same methods which work-
ed well in Europe, Southern California and
other states, the Hawaian Islands, and
other Pacific islands. One of these is the
skimming” tunnel which runs out from
the bottom of the well under the ground at
sea level. This increases the area that
water can be pumped from, and acts like
many wells instead of just one.

By the end of 1930, all the ten wells ex-
cept the Mangel Cora were abandoned. The
present pump station had been built, and a
200 foot water-collecting tunnel was in ser-
vice. This tunnel has been extended through
the years until now it runs nearly half a
mile under the coral.

Early in the work it was found practical
to drill holes and pump a concrete mixture
into the coral to form an underground dam
or grout line” between the tunnel and the
ocean. The concrete helps to fill the holes

Survivor Benefits
(Continued from page

visors with details of the Plan.)
The number of payments and the



(Continued from page 1)

amount depend on the age of the |
annuitant at the time of his death.
The younger the annuitant is when

he dies, the more payments his sur-
vivors will receive. In no case, how-
ever, will his dependents receive

less than half of the payments due |
(Vhe table at |
Reason for |

when he first retired.
bottom illustrates this.)
this is that the younger man will
usually have obligations to
contribute to someone else’s support



than the older man will.
Here is an example of how the
plan works for an annuitant. Sup-

pose a single employee who is earn-
ing Fls. 400 a month retires at the
age of 60. Two years later he dies.
During the year before he died, he
was contributing support amount-
ing to Fls. 50 each month to two
relatives. In this example, 90 per
cent of the amount payable to this
annuitant’s dependents when he first
retired is now due (according to the
schedule for annuitants), since he
died two years after retirement.
Thus, 90 per cent of one year’s sup-
port to his relatives amounts to
FIs. 1080. Each of his relativ
would then receive monthly payments
until Fls. 1080 is paid.

If the above annuitant we
married and left a widow, she
would receive 90 per cent of a year’s
pay as of the last day he worked
tor the Company, or Ils. 4320.
would receive payments each month
until a total of FIs. 4320 was paid.





Thus, the payments made would be |

as follows:



Single Annuitant
Firt relative Fis. 540 |
Second relative Fls. 540
Total Fils. 1080)

Married Annuitant



Widow Fis. 4820
Provisions for Survivors
of Employees
Provisions in the former Death



Benefit Plan are incorporated into the
new Survivor Benefit Plan practically
unchanged. (Effective with the
adoption of this new Plan, the old
Death Benefit Plan is cancelled). In}
addition to the new section providing |
for benefits to the survivors of an- |
nuitants, monthly payments will be



made as in the past to the survivors,



of deceased employees and >
employees who have one or more
years’ service. (Employees are all

ment Plan - this does not include
those with a deferred annuity

Payments of survivor benefits will
be made in this order: to the spouse,
then children, then parent These
people are called the "beneficiaries”.
However, an emplo request |
that any of th p luded |
as a beneficiary and his request will
be considered by the Administrative
Committee that will administer the
Plan. If the employee is not survived
by a wife, children, or parents, an.

would be his bene

The amount to be paid to benefi-
ciaries of employees and ex-employ-
ees will be based on the following
table:

An example of how this Plan works
for the survivors of employees is as
follow A married employee with
10 years service dies, He was earn-
ing Fls. 400 a month when he died.
His family included a wife and two
| dependent children ages 12 and +7
Under the Survivor Benefit iian,
this employee’s family would ke eu-
titled to benefits amounting to one
year’s earnings, or Fls. 4800. This
amount would be paid monthly over
a period of two years. Each month,
one-half of the deceased’s monthly
earnings would go to his family, or
Fls. 200 a month. Suppose, for
example, that the widow of this de-
| ceased employee should die after she
had received Fls. 200 a month for
six months. The children would the.
be entitled to the remaining 18 pay-





ments. These would be divided so
|that each child would receive
Fils. 100 per month until the old

child beeame 18 years old. Then the
younger child would receive the full
Fils. 200 each month until all 24 pay-
ments were made to the entire fami-
\ly. This family would have received
the following amounts:

widow -

|6 payments of Fls. 200, or Fls. 1200
| older child -

6 payments of Fls. 100, or Fls.
younger child -

6 payments of Fls. 100, plus
12 payments of Fls. 200, or Fls. 300(

600



Total Fls.

Each payment will not exceed one-

| half the deceased’s monthly

earnings as of the last day worked.

If no beneficiaries qualify for

survivor benefits, up to Fls. 200 will

be given for burial expenses of the
deceased.
