Governor Discusses

The Island's Roads

At a press conference February
22, Lt. Gov. L. C. Kwartsz discussed
with island newsmen the condition of
Aruba’s roads. Also present were A.
van den Berg, head of Public Works,
and J. A. Hille, assistant head.

Dr. Kwartsz pointed out that Pu-
blic Wor has road inspectors, and
keeps informed of the condition of
roads. He said that repairs - other
than temporary repairs - often could
not be made right away because suf-
ficient funds were not available.
Kwartsz stressed that the
rains in late 1950 had serious-
ly impaired the condition of roads in
Aruba. He pointed out that the rain-
fall last November and December
(over 20 inches) was more than twice
the amount of rain that fell during
the entire year in 1948; the rainfall
in those two months alone equalled |
the entire rainfall in 1949.












Rain gets under the roads and |
softens the sub-soil. Then heavy |
traffic cracks the surface of the road,
creating holes. Where large holes
are made, or where dangerous situat-
ions exist, temporary repairs are
made. However, Dr. Kwartsz said

that it was almost impossible to re-
pair the roads during heavy rainy
periods, since any work done would
be washed away.

The Lt. Gov. compared
progress in recent years as
from the burro to a_ shiny

Could you stop in time to avoid running over the little girl
above? Could you stop in time? That is a question every motorist |
should ask himself. A child may suddenly run out in front of
your car — another car may dash out from an intersection —
any number of things could happen that make it necessary that
you be able to stop in time. For safety’s sake — your own safety
as well as others — constantly ask yourself when you are driv-

ing, Can I stop in time?”

The drawing above is from a poster put out by the Associat-
ion for Safe Traffic in Aruba. The Association is working acti-

vely to make driving in Aruba

will see more of the work of the Association in seeking to make}

Aruba’s highways safer for you

and your families.

Receipt Needed for
Final Settlement

In order to control operations at |
the Commissary, a new procedure is
being used in making final settle-
ments with staff and regular employ-
ees who terminate their services.

Before settlement of salary or
wages is made, an employee must
turn in at the Lago Police office his
badge, all Commissary charga-plates,
and, if he has one, his family-mem-
ber Commis identification card.

The LPD will issue to the employee
a receipt for these items. The em-
ployee then shows this receipt at the
payroll office when settlement is
made.

sedan in a very short period. Aruba
- and its roads - he said, just hadn’t
been able to keep up with the
new sedan. In the past, because of a
shortage of funds, Aruba had tried
to build as many roads as it could
with the money available. In the fu-
ture, Dr. Kwartsz d, the Govern-
ment would seek to build the finest
roads possible.

van den Berg cautioned against
spending so much money for the
upkeep of roads alone that the is-
land’s economy would be seriously
upset. As an example, he cited a
fast-growing town in Holland that
built so many new roads that it went
bankrupt trying to pay for them.




















Dr. Kwar also touched on the
problem of sidewalks in Aruba,
Since the hous were built before



the roads, the roads often are on the
same level with the yards. Sidewalks
would therefore put a dam around
the houses, ¢ ing water to collect
in the yards. To attempt to construct
sidewalks on the same level with the
rds would be impractical, since it
Imost impossible to dig down
through the hard coral.

Here are the things I can do to
cut cost. Be on the job regularly as
to avoid shortage of man power. Be
on the job in time as to be a good
employee. Learn all about my job
and help to teach others to do it.
Give eight hours work what the
Company is expecting. Keep my
foreman inform of the job move-
ment. Help others to see and do
things beneficial to health and sa-
fety. I am a safe worker because
unsafe workers often have to see the
doctor. I can coin my idea on things
which I think if done by management
or others may help to cut cost. I
can use my knowledge and strength
thing to help the Cost
Reduction Program. I can save on
1 and avoid waste, and keep
ything in its proper place. I can
are myself for a better job as











pre

| to be able to.

| offices of my boss
!or oil spills on floor are cleaned up.

Help to cut cost. I think on
methods which take less time to do
jobs and always try to beat my past





record. I have an apprentice in the
gang where I work. I take plenty
interest in him in which I expect

other workmen should do the same,
also the corporal, because the boys
of today are the men of tomorrow.

Safety is the first thing I think of
when I reach to my job. Anything
that looks unsafe to me I report it
to my supervisor. Any broken glass
around the place is picked up care-
fully and dumped. Then I clean the
‘s, and corks, paper





Then I sweep the building, when I
clean the dust from the doors and
windows I wear my goggles, when I
open boxes I wear my gloves. I pick
up screw caps and corks from the
floor and put them in the gasoil bath
to be washed. Anytime I see a water









faucet open I close it. I help the
samplers in my spare time. While I
am on the job I am always thinking



how I can help to cut costs.

| (1) To remind the men at the s

Engineer A
TSD Field Engineers

In the capacity as field engineer
the activities of men|
engaged in construction layout and
survey work, I can help reduce both
iting and construction costs by |
continuing to observe efficient work-
ing practices, avoiding wastes and
carrying out the following doctrines:
art
of each day to work safely, avoid
injury to themselves and their fellow |
workers. To make periodic checks
during the day to insure the men’s
safe working conditions and note |
whether they are exercising the
proper safety precautions and using
necessary safety equipment.

(2) To assist each man through |
proper instructions in the most effi- |
cient way in carrying out his duties.
Attempt to find his weaknesses and |
try to correct them, discover his
capabilities and utilize them to the
best advantages. |
(3) Review with the men each job |













Ne ———

| di

to be done at the job site so that the
individual will know his specific
duties thus avoiding possible con-
fusion and misunderstandings with
resulting loss of time. !
(4) Simplify record keeping of field
data by recommending the use of
loose leaf data sheets and eliminating
use of field books.

(5) Keep reminding the M&C su-
pervisors and their sub-ordinates to
avoid unnecessary destruction of |
engineers’ layout stakes either by
workmen or equipment. An estimat- |
ed 25% of field engineers time is |
spent in replacing layout stakes |
destroyed through negligence.

(6) Take personal pride in the case
of equipment assigned to me perso- |
nally (scooter) or to my men such
as engineering instruments, tapes,
books ete. Constantly see that these
instruments and tapes are kept
cleaned, properly oiled and adjusted
thereby increasing the useful life of

said equipment and avoiding too
frequent replacements. |
(7) Take an interest in my men’s |

personal and family affairs when- |
ever possible thereby keeping them |
in a more contented state of mind.
This results in better performance
of the employee’s duties.
(8) Avoid waste of miscellaneous

items such as soaps, towels, pencils |



| etc. by seeing that the men do not

abuse their use.

The above practices have been di-
ligently observed by the writer
throughout his years of service in
Aruba and there will be no let down
especially since ”Cost Control” is the
theme song now.

Mareh 2, 1951



Congratulations to the men of the Port Steward’s
Department who have

Division of the Marine

worked ten years without a disabling injury.
Here's the story of how they achieved this record.

Last week, in a letter of commen-
dation to Port Steward L. C. Nelson,
Marine Manager J. Andreae said
"Today marks the completion of ten
operation of the Port Steward
sion without a lost-time injury
I Rodd like to take this opportunity
to z Marine Management’s
Sere pe aresiatin of this splendid
achievement. It is especially note-
worthy because the duties of this
Division involve the handling and
delivery of stores, provisions, and
other materials to all classes of ships
using our harbor and a high degree
of exposure is experienced”.

This ten year record was achieved

















on February 20 and totaled 986,580
manhours worked by the 46 men in
the Division. The record was piled
up vine the men w working in
a wide riety of dutie stevedor-
ing, anidline provisions, taking
crude oil samples to the labs... in
short, keeping more than four thous-
and tankers a year supplied with liv-
ing and working materials.











Often under the pressure of meet-
ing close time schedul these men
have proven that safety can be
achieved under all kinds of working
conditions. The tribute they have re-
ceived is well deserved.




Lake tankers take cold storage supplies every 9 days and dry
supplies every 12 days. Stewards go aboard, check inventories,
get supplies from storehouse. These men are filling final orders.

When the cargo from the stores barge is lifted onto the deck of a tanker,
stewards men move fast, but constantly observe safety. During wartime
these men worked in blackouts; stored ships by carrying goods up gangway.



Laundry such as these bundles being
brought in and weighed is another daily
item. Last year’s total was 322,625 pounds.



Warehouse clerks take orders for stores, prepare requisitions, and pass
them to assembly section. These men often board ships to check in-
ventories. Office clerks prepare customs papers for orders.

Esso lube oil goes aboard as men of the 4-12 shift load a lake tanker.
They will work on into the night (often on wet slippery decks) and
strive to keep their outstanding safety record unmarred.

Governor Discusses

The Island's Roads

At a press conference February
22, Lt. Gov. L. C. Kwartsz discussed
with island newsmen the condition of
Aruba’s roads. Also present were A.
van den Berg, head of Public Works,
and J. A. Hille, assistant head.

Dr. Kwartsz pointed out that Pu-
blic Wor has road inspectors, and
keeps informed of the condition of
roads. He said that repairs - other
than temporary repairs - often could
not be made right away because suf-
ficient funds were not available.
Kwartsz stressed that the
rains in late 1950 had serious-
ly impaired the condition of roads in
Aruba. He pointed out that the rain-
fall last November and December
(over 20 inches) was more than twice
the amount of rain that fell during
the entire year in 1948; the rainfall
in those two months alone equalled |
the entire rainfall in 1949.












Rain gets under the roads and |
softens the sub-soil. Then heavy |
traffic cracks the surface of the road,
creating holes. Where large holes
are made, or where dangerous situat-
ions exist, temporary repairs are
made. However, Dr. Kwartsz said

that it was almost impossible to re-
pair the roads during heavy rainy
periods, since any work done would
be washed away.

The Lt. Gov. compared
progress in recent years as

Could you stop in time to avoid running over the little girl

should ask himself. A child may suddenly run out in front of
your car — another car may dash out from an intersection —
any number of things could happen that make it necessary that
you be able to stop in time. For safety’s sake — your own safety
as well as others — constantly ask yourself when you are driv-

Receipt Needed for
Final Settlement

In order to control operations at |
the Commissary, a new procedure is
being used in making final settle-
ments with staff and regular employ-
ees who terminate their services.

Before settlement of salary or
wages is made, an employee must
turn in at the Lago Police office his
badge, all Commissary charga-plates,
and, if he has one, his family-mem-
ber Commis identification card.

The LPD will issue to the employee
a receipt for these items. The em-
ployee then shows this receipt at the
payroll office when settlement is
made.

sedan in a very short period. Aruba
- and its roads - he said, just hadn’t
been able to keep up with the
new sedan. In the past, because of a
shortage of funds, Aruba had tried
to build as many roads as it could
with the money available. In the fu-
ture, Dr. Kwartsz d, the Govern-
ment would seek to build the finest
roads possible.

van den Berg cautioned against
spending so much money for the
upkeep of roads alone that the is-
land’s economy would be seriously
upset. As an example, he cited a
fast-growing town in Holland that
built so many new roads that it went
bankrupt trying to pay for them.




















Dr. Kwar also touched on the
problem of sidewalks in Aruba,
Since the hous were built before



the roads, the roads often are on the
same level with the yards. Sidewalks
would therefore put a dam around
the houses, ¢ ing water to collect
in the yards. To attempt to construct
sidewalks on the same level with the
rds would be impractical, since it
Imost impossible to dig down
through the hard coral.

Here are the things I can do to
cut cost. Be on the job regularly as
to avoid shortage of man power. Be
on the job in time as to be a good
employee. Learn all about my job
and help to teach others to do it.
Give eight hours work what the
Company is expecting. Keep my
foreman inform of the job move-
ment. Help others to see and do
things beneficial to health and sa-
fety. I am a safe worker because
unsafe workers often have to see the
doctor. I can coin my idea on things
which I think if done by management
or others may help to cut cost. I
can use my knowledge and strength
thing to help the Cost
Reduction Program. I can save on
1 and avoid waste, and keep
ything in its proper place. I can
are myself for a better job as











pre

| to be able to.

| offices of my boss
!or oil spills on floor are cleaned up.

Help to cut cost. I think on
methods which take less time to do
jobs and always try to beat my past





record. I have an apprentice in the
gang where I work. I take plenty
interest in him in which I expect

other workmen should do the same,
also the corporal, because the boys
of today are the men of tomorrow.

Safety is the first thing I think of
when I reach to my job. Anything
that looks unsafe to me I report it
to my supervisor. Any broken glass
around the place is picked up care-
fully and dumped. Then I clean the
‘s, and corks, paper





Then I sweep the building, when I
clean the dust from the doors and
windows I wear my goggles, when I
open boxes I wear my gloves. I pick
up screw caps and corks from the
floor and put them in the gasoil bath
to be washed. Anytime I see a water









faucet open I close it. I help the
samplers in my spare time. While I
am on the job I am always thinking



how I can help to cut costs.

| (1) To remind the men at the s

Engineer A
TSD Field Engineers

In the capacity as field engineer
the activities of men|
engaged in construction layout and
survey work, I can help reduce both
iting and construction costs by |
continuing to observe efficient work-
ing practices, avoiding wastes and
carrying out the following doctrines:
art
of each day to work safely, avoid
injury to themselves and their fellow |
workers. To make periodic checks
during the day to insure the men’s
safe working conditions and note |
whether they are exercising the
proper safety precautions and using
necessary safety equipment.

(2) To assist each man through |
proper instructions in the most effi- |
cient way in carrying out his duties.
Attempt to find his weaknesses and |
try to correct them, discover his
capabilities and utilize them to the
best advantages. |
(3) Review with the men each job |













Ne ———

to be done at the job site so that the
individual will know his specific
duties thus avoiding possible con-
fusion and misunderstandings with
resulting loss of time. !
(4) Simplify record keeping of field
data by recommending the use of
loose leaf data sheets and eliminating
use of field books.

(5) Keep reminding the M&C su-
pervisors and their sub-ordinates to
avoid unnecessary destruction of |
engineers’ layout stakes either by
workmen or equipment. An estimat- |
ed 25% of field engineers time is |
spent in replacing layout stakes |
destroyed through negligence.

(6) Take personal pride in the case
of equipment assigned to me perso- |
nally (scooter) or to my men such
as engineering instruments, tapes,
books ete. Constantly see that these
instruments and tapes are kept
cleaned, properly oiled and adjusted
thereby increasing the useful life of

said equipment and avoiding too
frequent replacements. |
(7) Take an interest in my men’s |

personal and family affairs when- |
ever possible thereby keeping them |
in a more contented state of mind.
This results in better performance
of the employee’s duties.
(8) Avoid waste of miscellaneous

items such as soaps, towels, pencils |



| etc. by seeing that the men do not

abuse their use.

The above practices have been di-
ligently observed by the writer
throughout his years of service in
Aruba and there will be no let down
especially since ”Cost Control” is the
theme song now.

Mareh 2, 1951



Congratulations to the men of the Port Steward’s
Department who have

Division of the Marine

worked ten years without a disabling injury.
Here's the story of how they achieved this record.

Last week, in a letter of commen-
dation to Port Steward L. C. Nelson,
Marine Manager J. Andreae said
"Today marks the completion of ten
operation of the Port Steward
sion without a lost-time injury
I Rodd like to take this opportunity
to z Marine Management’s
Sere pe aresiatin of this splendid
achievement. It is especially note-
worthy because the duties of this
Division involve the handling and
delivery of stores, provisions, and
other materials to all classes of ships
using our harbor and a high degree
of exposure is experienced”.

This ten year record was achieved

















on February 20 and totaled 986,580
manhours worked by the 46 men in
the Division. The record was piled
up vine the men w working in
a wide riety of dutie stevedor-
ing, anidline provisions, taking
crude oil samples to the labs... in
short, keeping more than four thous-
and tankers a year supplied with liv-
ing and working materials.











Often under the pressure of meet-
ing close time schedul these men
have proven that safety can be
achieved under all kinds of working
conditions. The tribute they have re-
ceived is well deserved.




Lake tankers take cold storage supplies every 9 days and dry
supplies every 12 days. Stewards go aboard, check inventories,
get supplies from storehouse. These men are filling final orders.

When the cargo from the stores barge is lifted onto the deck of a tanker,
stewards men move fast, but constantly observe safety. During wartime
these men worked in blackouts; stored ships by carrying goods up gangway.



Laundry such as these bundles being
brought in and weighed is another daily
item. Last year’s total was 322,625 pounds.



Warehouse clerks take orders for stores, prepare requisitions, and pass
them to assembly section. These men often board ships to check in-
ventories. Office clerks prepare customs papers for orders.

Esso lube oil goes aboard as men of the 4-12 shift load a lake tanker.
They will work on into the night (often on wet slippery decks) and
strive to keep their outstanding safety record unmarred.
