Check-Room Set Up
For Commissaries

Of Shift Employees

A check-room was opened at the
Main Gate last Tuesday, January 2,
so that employees on the 4-12 shift
will ve a place to leave their Com-
missary pracels while they are on the
job. The room is open daily, except
Sunday, from 2:30 to 4:30 in the af-
ternoon for the purpose of accepting
Commissary parcels; and from 12
midnight to 12:45 a.m. to give them
out. In case an employee works over-
time and reaches the Main Gate after
12:45 a.m., he should contact the
lieutenant in charge of the LPD shift
in order to get his parcel.

The check-room works as follows:
the room has 313 bins, each with a
numbered brass tag on it. The
employee hands his bundle to the
attendant (a man from the Lago Po-
lice Department), who places his
parcel in one of the bins. The atten-
dant gives the employee the brass tag
off that bin. When the employee
returns for his, parcel, he turns in
the tag and the attendant gives him
his parcel. Parcels will be turned in
and picked up at the door, and the
LPD attendant will be the only man
allowed in the check-room.

Since sales at the new Lago Com-
missary are handled on a direct credit

through the use of charge-
employees on shift should use

s check-room rather than, take
their purcha to their plaeé of
work. If they take them inside the
Concession gates they will have dif-
ficulty getting them out, since they
will no longer have itemized sales
slips for their Commissary purchases.

The new safety plaque - noting Lago’s outstanding 1949 safety record -
is now up at the Main Gate. It faces the San Nicolas side, and is located
at the entrance to the refinery.

Make 1951 A Safe Year

High on the list of everyone’s hopes for the New Year is that
he enjoy good health during the year. Without health, you are
unable to get the most enjoyment out of life. It’s just good com-
mon sense to work safely, play safely, drive safely — regardless
of what you do, to always be on guard against an accident of
any kind.

With the New Year just started — and with many people
making resolutions to do this or that during the year — now is
a good time to add a safety resolution to your others. Everyone
might not have a prosperous New Year, but everyone can have
a safe New Year. Be careful, alert, and use sound judgement — if
you do, chances are that 1951 will be a safe year for you.

Haci 1951 Anja Segure

Promer cos ariba lista di esperanza di anja nobo ta cu e lo go-
za di un salud perfecto durante e anja. Sin salud, bo ta incapaz
di logra mayoria gozo for di bida. E ta nada mas cu un sentido
comun di traha safely, hunga safely, stuur safely - depende kiko
cu bo ta haci, pa semper bo ta prepara contra accidente di ki
sorto cu ta.

Cu anja nobo recien cuminza — y cu hopi hende haciendo re-
solucion pa haci esaki of esaya durante e anja — awor ta un
bon tempo pa inclui un resolucion di seguridad na otro. Tur hen-
de podiser no tin un anja di prosperidad, pero tur hende por tin
un anja safe. Ser cuidadoso, alerta, y usa bo sinti — si bo haci
asina, chensnan ta cu 1951 lo ser un anja mashar segur pa bo.

Want a Prosperous New Year?

Your ideas are worth money

In 1950 the 112 employees listed on this page
finished out the year by sharing Fls. 5555
among themselves. They did that by keeping
their eyes open — looking for ways to improve
their jobs, to eliminate inefficient or wasteful
steps, to remove safety hazards. In short, they
looked for more efficient, safer ways of opera-
tions. Once they found them, they sat down
and wrote out their ideas. Then they sent them
in to the Coin Your Ideas Committee.

Investigations by the Committee showed that
the men on this page had good ideas. That’s
why each of them received a cash award, rang-
ing from Fls. 1000 down to Fls. 20.

Ideas are worth money, as hundreds of Lago
employees have learned during the past years.
But they are not worth anything to you if you
keep them bottled up in your head. So send
them in to CYI. Everybody wants to enjoy a
prosperous New Year — and Coin Your Ideas
offers a wonderful opportunity for all Lago
employees to make this New Year a prosperous
one.

The Garden of Paradise

There was once a King’s son who
had all sorts of picture books, but
none of them said anything about
the Garden of Paradise, and that was
just what he wanted to read about.
One day when he was walking in the
forest he came upon a great cave. He
looked in, and saw a_ stag being
reasted on a huge fire. An old
woman, big and strong, who looked
like a man, sat by the fire.

"Come in and get yourself dried,”
said the old woman, for the young
Prince had been caught in the rain

He entered the » and sat down
by the fire. ’There is a nasty draft
here,” he id.











"It will be worse when my sons
come home, d the woman. You
are in the of the Winds, and
my sons are the four winds of
heaven. Here is one of them now.”



It was the North Wind who came
in with icy coldness.
Hailstones bounded about the floor,



and the snow flakes floated in the
air. He was clad in a bear’s skin with
a sealskin cap, which came down

over his ears; long icicles hung down
from his beard.

, "Do not go too suddenly to the
fire,” said the Prince. "If you do,
your hands and feet will be frost-



bitten.”

”Frost!” the North Wind said, and
burst out laughing. "Why, it is just
frost I love more than thing else.
I come from the Polar Sea where
there is nothing but frost. But here
comes West Wind.”

The Wi Wind looked like a wild
man. His hair was all shaggy and
he carried a grez mahogany club
from one of the far western forests.

Now came the South Wind, wearing
a turban and a long flowing gown
like a Bedouin of the desert. "It is
terribly cold here,” he said, coming
close to the fire.

”Nonsense!” said the North Wind.
"It is so hot I can hardly breathe!”

Then in came the East Wind,
dressed like a Chinese.

"Oh, do you come from
of Paradise?” asked the

"No. But I go there
said the East Wind.

"Please, oh please, take
pleaded the Prince.

So the next day, after

me there!”

the Prince
sleep, the
st Wind carried him away to the
Garden of Paradise. It v full of
palm trees and lovely flowers and
singing birds. "Oh, this is wonder-
ful!” cried the Prir Then he found
that a beautiful Fairy was standing
beside him.

”So you like our Garden ?” she sz

"Indeed I do,” said the Prince.
would like to live here all my life.”

"That cannot be,” said the F y.
"At least, not for ever so many year
The East Wind likes to bring little
boys here now and then, just to show
them what a_ beautiful place the
Garden of Paradise is. But he must
whisk them back to their homes
right away.”

"And you are going to send me
away too?” asked the Prince with
tears in his eyes.

"Indeed I am,” said the Fairy.
"But if you are good all through
your life, the East Wind will bring























‘you to the Garden, and you can stay

here for ever and ever.”

So saying she disappeared, and the
East wind suddenly sprang upon the
Prince and carried him off. He fell
asleep, and when he awoke he was
back in his home. But he was happy
now, for he kne’ 1 about the Gar-
den of Paradi trange to say, he
never again saw the Cave of the

Winds.

Check-Room Set Up
For Commissaries

Of Shift Employees

A check-room was opened at the
Main Gate last Tuesday, January 2,
so that employees on the 4-12 shift
will ve a place to leave their Com-
missary pracels while they are on the
job. The room is open daily, except
Sunday, from 2:30 to 4:30 in the af-
ternoon for the purpose of accepting
Commissary parcels; and from 12
midnight to 12:45 a.m. to give them
out. In case an employee works over-
time and reaches the Main Gate after
12:45 a.m., he should contact the
lieutenant in charge of the LPD shift
in order to get his parcel.

The check-room works as follows:
the room has 313 bins, each with a
numbered brass tag on it. The
employee hands his bundle to the
attendant (a man from the Lago Po-
lice Department), who places his
parcel in one of the bins. The atten-
dant gives the employee the brass tag
off that bin. When the employee
returns for his, parcel, he turns in
the tag and the attendant gives him
his parcel. Parcels will be turned in
and picked up at the door, and the
LPD attendant will be the only man
allowed in the check-room.

Since sales at the new Lago Com-
missary are handled on a direct credit

through the use of charge-
employees on shift should use

s check-room rather than, take
their purcha to their plaeé of
work. If they take them inside the
Concession gates they will have dif-
ficulty getting them out, since they
will no longer have itemized sales
slips for their Commissary purchases.

Make 1951 A Safe Year

High on the list of everyone’s hopes for the New Year is that
he enjoy good health during the year. Without health, you are
unable to get the most enjoyment out of life. It’s just good com-
mon sense to work safely, play safely, drive safely — regardless
of what you do, to always be on guard against an accident of
any kind.

With the New Year just started — and with many people
making resolutions to do this or that during the year — now is
a good time to add a safety resolution to your others. Everyone
might not have a prosperous New Year, but everyone can have
a safe New Year. Be careful, alert, and use sound judgement — if
you do, chances are that 1951 will be a safe year for you.

Haci 1951 Anja Segure

Promer cos ariba lista di esperanza di anja nobo ta cu e lo go-
za di un salud perfecto durante e anja. Sin salud, bo ta incapaz
di logra mayoria gozo for di bida. E ta nada mas cu un sentido
comun di traha safely, hunga safely, stuur safely - depende kiko
cu bo ta haci, pa semper bo ta prepara contra accidente di ki
sorto cu ta.

Cu anja nobo recien cuminza — y cu hopi hende haciendo re-
solucion pa haci esaki of esaya durante e anja — awor ta un
bon tempo pa inclui un resolucion di seguridad na otro. Tur hen-
de podiser no tin un anja di prosperidad, pero tur hende por tin
un anja safe. Ser cuidadoso, alerta, y usa bo sinti — si bo haci
asina, chensnan ta cu 1951 lo ser un anja mashar segur pa bo.

Want a Prosperous New Year?

Your ideas are worth money

In 1950 the 112 employees listed on this page
finished out the year by sharing Fls. 5555
among themselves. They did that by keeping
their eyes open — looking for ways to improve
their jobs, to eliminate inefficient or wasteful
steps, to remove safety hazards. In short, they
looked for more efficient, safer ways of opera-
tions. Once they found them, they sat down
and wrote out their ideas. Then they sent them
in to the Coin Your Ideas Committee.

Investigations by the Committee showed that
the men on this page had good ideas. That’s
why each of them received a cash award, rang-
ing from Fls. 1000 down to Fls. 20.

Ideas are worth money, as hundreds of Lago
employees have learned during the past years.
But they are not worth anything to you if you
keep them bottled up in your head. So send
them in to CYI. Everybody wants to enjoy a
prosperous New Year — and Coin Your Ideas
offers a wonderful opportunity for all Lago
employees to make this New Year a prosperous
one.

The Garden of Paradise

There was once a King’s son who
had all sorts of picture books, but
none of them said anything about
the Garden of Paradise, and that was
just what he wanted to read about.
One day when he was walking in the
forest he came upon a great cave. He
looked in, and saw a_ stag being
reasted on a huge fire. An old
woman, big and strong, who looked
like a man, sat by the fire.

"Come in and get yourself dried,”
said the old woman, for the young
Prince had been caught in the rain

He entered the » and sat down
by the fire. ’There is a nasty draft
here,” he id.











"It will be worse when my sons
come home, d the woman. You
are in the of the Winds, and
my sons are the four winds of
heaven. Here is one of them now.”



It was the North Wind who came
in with icy coldness.
Hailstones bounded about the floor,



and the snow flakes floated in the
air. He was clad in a bear’s skin with
a sealskin cap, which came down

over his ears; long icicles hung down
from his beard.

, "Do not go too suddenly to the
fire,” said the Prince. "If you do,
your hands and feet will be frost-



bitten.”

”Frost!” the North Wind said, and
burst out laughing. "Why, it is just
frost I love more than thing else.
I come from the Polar Sea where
there is nothing but frost. But here
comes West Wind.”

The Wi Wind looked like a wild
man. His hair was all shaggy and
he carried a grez mahogany club
from one of the far western forests.

Now came the South Wind, wearing
a turban and a long flowing gown
like a Bedouin of the desert. "It is
terribly cold here,” he said, coming
close to the fire.

”Nonsense!” said the North Wind.
"It is so hot I can hardly breathe!”

Then in came the East Wind,
dressed like a Chinese.

"Oh, do you come from
of Paradise?” asked the

"No. But I go there
said the East Wind.

"Please, oh please, take
pleaded the Prince.

So the next day, after

tomorrow”,



me there!”

the Prince
sleep, the
st Wind carried him away to the
Garden of Paradise. It v full of
palm trees and lovely flowers and
singing birds. "Oh, this is wonder-
ful!” cried the Prir Then he found
that a beautiful Fairy was standing
beside him.

”So you like our Garden ?” she sz

"Indeed I do,” said the Prince.
would like to live here all my life.”

"That cannot be,” said the F y.
"At least, not for ever so many year
The East Wind likes to bring little
boys here now and then, just to show
them what a_ beautiful place the
Garden of Paradise is. But he must
whisk them back to their homes
right away.”

"And you are going to send me
away too?” asked the Prince with
tears in his eyes.

"Indeed I am,” said the Fairy.
"But if you are good all through
your life, the East Wind will bring























‘you to the Garden, and you can stay

here for ever and ever.”

So saying she disappeared, and the
East wind suddenly sprang upon the
Prince and carried him off. He fell
asleep, and when he awoke he was
back in his home. But he was happy
now, for he kne’ 1 about the Gar-
den of Paradi trange to say, he
never again saw the Cave of the

Winds.

ta net lo cual e kier leza. Un d
e tabata camna den mondi y a bin
sali na un cueva. a wak paden, y
a mira un porco yena ta rooster ari-
ba candela. Un muher bieeuw, grandi
y fuerte, cu parce un homber, tabata
sinta banda di e candela.

"Drenta bo y seca bo mes,” e mu-
her bieuw a bi Prins

pero nunca mas el a mira e Cueva di
