names of the 101 prizewinners - who will share in the Fls. 10,000

The Contest ran for one month, from the time y number 1 was
received (from Herbert Daniel, Marine Office) until number 909
arrived at the Esso News office (number 909, incidentally, came from
C. D. Sexton, Jr., of TSD). During

Eleven teams of judges are now
reading the 909 essays. Before the

ults can be announced, each

th good points of each must be
weighed carefully against those of
all the othe Eventually, the jud-

down to perhaps 200 e s that
they consider the best. And that
group will have to be narrowed
down even further to the 101 that

To consider each essay fairly and

y representatives from the
ships of the Lake Fleet and memb-
ers of the Marine Shore Staff, Mar-
ine Manager J. Andreae thus key-
noted the Lake Tankermen’s Comm-
ittee Dinner held on September 21.

Speaking for the Committee, Lead-
ing Representative D. L. van Put-
ten said, "We are very grate-
ful to Management for the close
unity that existed between us for
this, another year, We can now lcok
back with pride on the achieve-
ments made over the past.”

This banquet, held yearly, cele-
brated another anniversary of the
Lake Tankermen’s Committee which
represents the unlicensed personnel
of the Lake Fleet vessels in settling
matters of mutual interest with
management.

Master of ceremonies was Captain
W. E. Porter, who kept the evening
lively by introducing a number of
extemporaneous speakers. An ex-
cellent banquet was prepared by the
staff of the Esso Heights Dining
Hall.

Also announced at the banquet
was the appointment of H. H. Seraus
as acting leading representative re-
placing D. L. van Putten during his
vacation.

Installments Reduced

For Medical Bills

To better spread out medical pay-
ments and to cause less financial
burden to employees on any one pay
day, the Company has announced
changes in the way medical charges
will be deducted from pay. The
changes, which are the result of dis-
cussions with the Special Problems
Advisory Committee, went into ef-
fect late last week.

The SPAC had previously pointed
out that an employee would under-
go financial hardship if his medical
bill happened to be large and was
deducted in one pay period. It would

ecially be hard on him if he had
several other unusual expenses for
the same period. To eliminate undue
hardship on employees, payments
were liberalized.

Under the new tem, the maxi-
mum deduction for any one pay
period from Regular employees’ pay
for medical charg will be in in-
stallments of Fls. 15. The maximum
deduction for any one pay period
from the pay of monthly-paid em-
ployees will be in installments of

40 per pay period.

Before, such deductions were made
in installments of 20 per pay
period from Regular employees, and
as a rule the entire amount was de-
ducted in one pay period from
monthly-paid employees.

The Little Ways

The essays that have been received in the Cost Reduction
Essay Contest show that many Lagoites are giving a lot of
thought to ways they can cut costs. With respect to one item,
though, some essays show that employees are not cutting costs
when they actually think they are.

That one item is carbon paper. Sure, one sheet of carbon
paper is a pretty inexpensive thing. But the price of all the sheets
of carbon paper that Lago uses in a year mounts up to a sur-
prisingly large sum. So carbon paper is definitely one item that
should be used carefully, used until it wears out.

In their essays, some employees have said, "instead of using
carbon paper only two or three times, I'll use it four or five
times before I throw it away.”

Carbon paper is sturdier stuff than that. It can be used many |
more than five times before it’s ready to be discarded. Of course, |
the life of a sheet of carbon paper depends on the use to which
it is put. Some carbon copies, because of their importance, must
be clearer than others. But, on the average, a sheet of carbon
paper will last until it has been used at least 20 times — and
still turn out legible carbons. i]

So the next time you start to throw away a sheet of carbon
paper after it’s been used only four or five times, stop and think. |
In most cases, there will still be plenty of use left in that sheet. |
Save it, and use it as long as it’s good. That way you will be
cutting costs, and not cutting short the life of something that is
still useful and valuable.

You don’t have to be a typist or stenographer to help in this
way. Every employee has some ways, big or little, in which he
can lower costs by simple attention to details. Be on the look-
out for your ways.

discussions with the
and the SPAC, the Company
announced several changes in
connection with payoffs at the gates.
Major changes are: (1) on paydays
employees requesting it will be paid
at the Lago Heights Gate; and (2)
hours during which employees may
receive their pay at the Seagrape
Grove Gate have been changed.

In addition, hours duri which
Thrift loans withdrawals, and
vacation ements will be paid at
the Main Gate are changed.

New hours for payoffs and settle-
ments are listed below.

The Company began paying Gen-
eral Works employees at the Lago
Heights Gate this past payday,
October 9. Paying employees here
grew out of the SPAC request that
General Works employees living on
the eastern end of the island be
paid here rather than at the Main
Gate or the Accounting Office. This
Ww considered especially
of the inconvenienc
to employees working the 1 shift.

Changes in payoff hours at the
Seagrape Grove Gate are the result
of a survey made there, This survey
showed that only a small number of
employees received their pay there
after certain hours. As a result, it
was decided to revise the schedule.

Good ideas pay off! Proof of that lies in the 72 names listed
on this page — 72 Lagoites who looked around them, and came
up with better or more efficient ways to do various operations.
And for turning in their ideas to the Coin Your Ideas Committee,
these 72 shared in F ls. 2870 that CYI paid out during the months
of June and July.

Any employee can have a good idea that the Company is
interested in — and any employee can turn in any number of
suggestions. Ideas turned in are thoroughly investigated by the
CYI Committee. If the Committee decides that the idea is worthy
of being put into practice, the person suggesting it receives a
cash award.

Coin Your Ideas boxes are located throughout the refinery.
Write out your idea on a piece of paper and drop it into one
of these CYI boxes. Or drop it into any outgoing mail box in
the refinery, and it will be delivered to the CYI office. Mail your
suggestions to Coin Your Ideas — or just the three letters
”’CYI” on the outside of the envelope is sufficient address.

Over the year the number of employees sending in suggestions
to CYI has greatly increased. On this page ar the names of em-
ployees who have been sending in suggestions for several years
— and who have been receiving cash awards when they turned
in ideas that the Company adopted. Others listed here are CYI
winners for the first time. Regardless of who you are, the Com-
pany is interested in receiving any good ideas you have.

Good ideas aren't worth anything if they stay in your head.
But they are worth something once you get them out where they
can be put into practice. Think of ways now you can Coin Your
Ideas. Write them down and mail them to the CYI office. Good
ideas are worth money, and your ideas may be good!

A Drop A Day
Keeps The Sun Away

It didn’t rain very much — last
month. In fact, the boys at the Lab
are content to say that September’s
rainfall was zero. Then their scien-
tific minds get the better of them,
and they admit that slight bit of
rain did fall - 0, inches. To
hem, that’s not much rain. But to
myone with a slide rule - as well
is the rare knowledge of how to
yperate it - tha 0,000 barrels
of rain. And ),000 barrels of
rain is enough water to last a fam-
ily of five for longer than we like
to think,

We can remember when 2,250,000
barrels of rainwater was more than
most people owned. But, of course,
that was before inflation. Today,
it’s just a drop in the bucket.
















month’s rainfall brings
total up to 19.70 inches, or
15,000 barrels (that’s really

only the equivalent of barrels - no
one actually put all that stuff into
barrels to measure it). It has rain-
ed more in the first nine montlis of
this year than it has in 13 different
12-month periods. And September
was the second driest September in
20 years - the driest one was back
in 1946, when only 0.01 inches fell.

Will 1950 see a new rain record
set in Aruba? The boys in the Lab,
experts in this sort of business, pre-



dict that it will rain some more
hefore this year passes into hi-
story.

The Frightened Boy

they asked for ¢ ck of corn instead
of wages. The farmer had no ob

divided right where the cemetery w
located, and at that point each r
had to go his own way. Jim und Jack
decided to stop at the cemetery and
divide the corn. As they carried the
sack through the gate, two ears of
corn fell down. Since they were in a
hurry they did not stop to pick them
up. They then sat down and started
dividing up the corn.

Jim said, "You take this one, and
I'll te that one; you take that one
and I’ll take this one.”

Just then a young boy went by and
heard them while they were counting,
and he ran home and told his master
ibout it. "Sir, an angel and the
devil are down in the cemetery divid-

up souls. I heard one of them

Tom was a very honest fellow, and
when he insisted, his master decided
to walk down to the cemetery and
take a look.

It was very dark and they could not
see the two ears of corn lying by the
gate, but they did hear a voice s
ing, You take this one, and I’ll t
that one; you take that one, and I’ll
take this one.”

Even though he us worried about
his master’s fate, he just could not
stop running. But when he got home
he found that his master had beaten
him to it, for there he lay in his bed
with all the covers pulled way up
over his head.

The Contest ran for one month, from the time y number 1 was

y representatives from the
ships of the Lake Fleet and memb-
ers of the Marine Shore Staff, Mar-
ine Manager J. Andreae thus key-
noted the Lake Tankermen’s Comm-
ittee Dinner held on September 21.

Speaking for the Committee, Lead-
ing Representative D. L. van Put-
ten said, "We are very grate-
ful to Management for the close
unity that existed between us for
this, another year, We can now lcok
back with pride on the achieve-
ments made over the past.”

This banquet, held yearly, cele-
brated another anniversary of the
Lake Tankermen’s Committee which
represents the unlicensed personnel
of the Lake Fleet vessels in settling
matters of mutual interest with
management.

Master of ceremonies was Captain
W. E. Porter, who kept the evening
lively by introducing a number of
extemporaneous speakers. An ex-
cellent banquet was prepared by the
staff of the Esso Heights Dining
Hall.

Also announced at the banquet
was the appointment of H. H. Seraus
as acting leading representative re-
placing D. L. van Putten during his
vacation.

Installments Reduced

For Medical Bills

To better spread out medical pay-
ments and to cause less financial
burden to employees on any one pay
day, the Company has announced
changes in the way medical charges
will be deducted from pay. The
changes, which are the result of dis-
cussions with the Special Problems
Advisory Committee, went into ef-
fect late last week.

The SPAC had previously pointed
out that an employee would under-
go financial hardship if his medical
bill happened to be large and was
deducted in one pay period. It would

ecially be hard on him if he had
several other unusual expenses for
the same period. To eliminate undue
hardship on employees, payments
were liberalized.

Under the new tem, the maxi-
mum deduction for any one pay
period from Regular employees’ pay
for medical charg will be in in-
stallments of Fls. 15. The maximum
deduction for any one pay period
from the pay of monthly-paid em-
ployees will be in installments of

40 per pay period.

Before, such deductions were made
in installments of 20 per pay
period from Regular employees, and
as a rule the entire amount was de-
ducted in one pay period from
monthly-paid employees.

The Little Ways

The essays that have been received in the Cost Reduction
Essay Contest show that many Lagoites are giving a lot of
thought to ways they can cut costs. With respect to one item,
though, some essays show that employees are not cutting costs
when they actually think they are.

That one item is carbon paper. Sure, one sheet of carbon
paper is a pretty inexpensive thing. But the price of all the sheets
of carbon paper that Lago uses in a year mounts up to a sur-
prisingly large sum. So carbon paper is definitely one item that
should be used carefully, used until it wears out.

In their essays, some employees have said, "instead of using
carbon paper only two or three times, I'll use it four or five
times before I throw it away.”

Carbon paper is sturdier stuff than that. It can be used many |
more than five times before it’s ready to be discarded. Of course, |
the life of a sheet of carbon paper depends on the use to which
it is put. Some carbon copies, because of their importance, must
be clearer than others. But, on the average, a sheet of carbon
paper will last until it has been used at least 20 times — and
still turn out legible carbons. i]

So the next time you start to throw away a sheet of carbon
paper after it’s been used only four or five times, stop and think. |
In most cases, there will still be plenty of use left in that sheet. |
Save it, and use it as long as it’s good. That way you will be
cutting costs, and not cutting short the life of something that is
still useful and valuable.

You don’t have to be a typist or stenographer to help in this
way. Every employee has some ways, big or little, in which he
can lower costs by simple attention to details. Be on the look-
out for your ways.

discussions with the
and the SPAC, the Company
announced several changes in
connection with payoffs at the gates.
Major changes are: (1) on paydays
employees requesting it will be paid
at the Lago Heights Gate; and (2)
hours during which employees may
receive their pay at the Seagrape
Grove Gate have been changed.

In addition, hours duri which
Thrift loans withdrawals, and
vacation ements will be paid at
the Main Gate are changed.

New hours for payoffs and settle-
ments are listed below.

The Company began paying Gen-
eral Works employees at the Lago
Heights Gate this past payday,
October 9. Paying employees here
grew out of the SPAC request that
General Works employees living on
the eastern end of the island be
paid here rather than at the Main
Gate or the Accounting Office. This
Ww considered especially
of the inconvenienc
to employees working the 1 shift.

Changes in payoff hours at the
Seagrape Grove Gate are the result
of a survey made there, This survey
showed that only a small number of
employees received their pay there
after certain hours. As a result, it
was decided to revise the schedule.

Good ideas pay off! Proof of that lies in the 72 names listed
on this page — 72 Lagoites who looked around them, and came
up with better or more efficient ways to do various operations.
And for turning in their ideas to the Coin Your Ideas Committee,
these 72 shared in F ls. 2870 that CYI paid out during the months
of June and July.

Any employee can have a good idea that the Company is
interested in — and any employee can turn in any number of
suggestions. Ideas turned in are thoroughly investigated by the
CYI Committee. If the Committee decides that the idea is worthy
of being put into practice, the person suggesting it receives a
cash award.

Coin Your Ideas boxes are located throughout the refinery.
Write out your idea on a piece of paper and drop it into one
of these CYI boxes. Or drop it into any outgoing mail box in
the refinery, and it will be delivered to the CYI office. Mail your
suggestions to Coin Your Ideas — or just the three letters
”’CYI” on the outside of the envelope is sufficient address.

Over the year the number of employees sending in suggestions
to CYI has greatly increased. On this page ar the names of em-
ployees who have been sending in suggestions for several years
— and who have been receiving cash awards when they turned
in ideas that the Company adopted. Others listed here are CYI
winners for the first time. Regardless of who you are, the Com-
pany is interested in receiving any good ideas you have.

Good ideas aren't worth anything if they stay in your head.
But they are worth something once you get them out where they
can be put into practice. Think of ways now you can Coin Your
Ideas. Write them down and mail them to the CYI office. Good
ideas are worth money, and your ideas may be good!

A Drop A Day
Keeps The Sun Away

It didn’t rain very much — last
month. In fact, the boys at the Lab
are content to say that September’s
rainfall was zero. Then their scien-
tific minds get the better of them,
and they admit that slight bit of
rain did fall - 0, inches. To
hem, that’s not much rain. But to
myone with a slide rule - as well
is the rare knowledge of how to
yperate it - tha 0,000 barrels
of rain. And ),000 barrels of
rain is enough water to last a fam-
ily of five for longer than we like
to think,

We can remember when 2,250,000
barrels of rainwater was more than
most people owned. But, of course,
that was before inflation. Today,
it’s just a drop in the bucket.
















month’s rainfall brings
total up to 19.70 inches, or
15,000 barrels (that’s really

only the equivalent of barrels - no
one actually put all that stuff into
barrels to measure it). It has rain-
ed more in the first nine montlis of
this year than it has in 13 different
12-month periods. And September
was the second driest September in
20 years - the driest one was back
in 1946, when only 0.01 inches fell.

Will 1950 see a new rain record
set in Aruba? The boys in the Lab,
experts in this sort of business, pre-



dict that it will rain some more
hefore this year passes into hi-
story.

The Frightened Boy

Jim and Jack had been working in
the fields and when they had finished
they asked for ¢ ck of corn instead
of wages. The farmer had no ob

happened that the road
divided right where the cemetery w
located, and at that point each r
had to go his own way. Jim und Jack
decided to stop at the cemetery and
divide the corn. As they carried the
sack through the gate, two ears of
corn fell down. Since they were in a
hurry they did not stop to pick them
up. They then sat down and started
dividing up the corn.

Jim said, "You take this one, and
I'll te that one; you take that one
and I’ll take this one.”

Just then a young boy went by and
heard them while they were counting,
and he ran home and told his master
ibout it. "Sir, an angel and the
devil are down in the cemetery divid-

up souls. I heard one of them

Tom was a very honest fellow, and
when he insisted, his master decided
to walk down to the cemetery and
take a look.

It was very dark and they could not
see the two ears of corn lying by the
gate, but they did hear a voice s
ing, You take this one, and I’ll t
that one; you take that one, and I’ll
take this one.”

Even though he us worried about
his master’s fate, he just could not
stop running. But when he got home
he found that his master had beaten
him to it, for there he lay in his bed
with all the covers pulled way up
over his head.
