What Makes a Good Process Man?
Survey Will Seek to Find Out

What kind of man makes the best Process Department employee?
Right now, it’s pretty hard to answer that question in any scientific
way. Even men who have worked for years in the Process Department
might have difficulty telling you just what the characteristics are of
a good Process employee.

Within a few months, though, we

will be made in the Process Depart-

ment to find out the characteristics
of Process employees. Why do some

Labor Rates
And Titles
Are Revised

Two Regular Classes Now
Replace Former Three

Following negotiations with the
LEC, job titles were changed in the




laborers’ ranks April 16, affecting
all departments; at the me time
several hundred men were moved to
a higher rate. The study of job
titles was made in accordance with



the Working Agreement.

This follows a long study of all
types of work this level, including
individual jobs, and a comparison of
* rates with rates at higher







The laborer job title is being re-
placed by dman”, and there will
be only two permanent labor cl
instead of three. There will
ardman starting” rate for a mini-
mum period of three months and a
maximum of four months, a ”"yard-
man” rate, and a ’yardman special”
rate. While many men at the latter
level will be called yardman sp LS
many at this level will have titles
relating to their work, such as
stevedore, storehouse yardman,
wharfinger, or process yardman.

The move grew out of a wage pro-
blem in the wharfinger group. The
change here involves combining two
into one by revising the job
, and applying the upper rate
to the entire group.

The Lago Employee Council agreed
to the changes April 17, following
a series of meetings on the subject.

Spectator Sportsmanship

For years, island sports fans have seen many outstanding
examples of fine sportsmanship at Lago Sport Park Olympiads.

Most of the sportsmanship, though, has taken place on the pl
ing field. There is still a great need for better sportsmanst

y

p





in the stands — for more consideration by spectators toward
other spectators, and toward the athletes and officials on the

field.
Queen’s Birthday Olympiads

— as well as all events at the

Lago Sport Park — are put on for the enjoyment of all island
residents who like sports. However, people in the stands can’t
enjoy the activities at the Park if other spectators are dis-

courteous.

There are a number of ways

that a few spectators can mar

the enjoyment of many — by standing up in the front section

of the bleachers, by crowding the aisles, by ovez
the field and blocking the view of those in the st
profane language, and by misbehaving in other ways



flowing onto
ds, by using



To get the most pleasure out of the Olymp‘ad — as well as
any sports event — you have to be able to see what’s going on
down on the field. We hope that everyone who attends the
Olympiad next Monday will keep that in mind. If they do, the
several thousand island sports fans there can get the most en-
joyment out of the events on the field.

Process Survey
(continued from page 1)
If the present study gives good re-
sults, the Company will be able to
predict which Vocational School
students, for example, will make
good Process employees.
The Process study will be carried
out by Kermit Hasler, of the In-



dustrial Relations Department. Mr.
Hasler’s assignment with Lago is
another instance of the popular

trend of industry leaning heavily on
universities for scientifie help in
solving industrial problems. He is in
Aruba for a year’s assignment as a
psychology intern; he is working on
his doctor’s degree in industrial
psychology at New York University.
The work he accomplishes here he
plans to incorporate into his doctor’s
thesis.

Mr. Hasler will use several
methods to gather the material he
seeking. At first, he will spend time
around a particular unit just talking
to people and observing. These talks
will give him ideas as to what makes
a successful Process worker. Some
employees will be asked to fill out
questionnaires telling what they
think about Process work; thes
questionnaires will not be
ased on the information he gathers,
Mr. Hasler will see if he can develop
a method which will help determine
if a man will make a good Process
worker before he is assigned to the
Proc Department.

This study will have no effect on
the men presently doing Process
work; it won’t help them, and _ it












won't hurt them. It will help other

people in the future, though. By

finding out why some people succeed
don’t,

Here’s How --

to apply for an HBF home:





Applications for Home Building
Foundation houses are taken by
Fred Beaujon at the Cashiers de-
partment in the Main Office. Mr.

Beaujon, secretary of the Foundat-
ion, has application blanks to be
filled out.

Any staff or regular employee is
eligible to apply.

Houses are allotted on a "First



come, first served” basis, according
to the order of names on the list.
(At present there are about 500

names on the waiting list. Arubans
have first choice on the houses
being built at Simeon Antonio).

When a group of houses is ready
for occupan they are allotted to
the employees at the top of the list.
A drawing is then made to determine
which house goes to which employee.

(Details of how the houses are
financed were carried in the Aruba

Flying Club Hunts
For Overdue Ship

Members of the Aruba Flying Club
responded promptly this month to a
Government request for assistance in
locating an 18-foot single masted
schooner that was overdue between
Curacao and Aruba. Despite an in-
tensive search of a wide area, how-
ever, no trace was found of the ship
or of the two men aboard.





The schooner, the Stella-Maris C-
49, had evidently run into trouble in
the unusually heavy seas of April 10
and 11, When it became known that
the ship was overdue, the Attorney
General’s office in Curacao asked the
Flying Club to start a search.





A search was immediately organiz-
ed by Club members, and four planes
went out. The large area covered by
the planes included the waters
around Aruba, between here and the
Paraguana Peninsula, along the
e n coastline of the Paraguana
Peninsula, and the wate between
Aruba and the Colombian coast,
well the Colombian coastline it-
f. Although a large number of
ships were sighted during the search,
no tr vas found of the missing
schooner.

search were

Labor Rates
And Titles
Are Revised

Two Regular Classes Now
Replace Former Three

Following negotiations with the
LEC, job titles were changed in the




laborers’ ranks April 16, affecting
all departments; at the me time
several hundred men were moved to
a higher rate. The study of job
titles was made in accordance with



the Working Agreement.

This follows a long study of all
types of work this level, including
individual jobs, and a comparison of
* rates with rates at higher







The laborer job title is being re-
placed by dman”, and there will
be only two permanent labor cl
instead of three. There will
ardman starting” rate for a mini-
mum period of three months and a
maximum of four months, a ”"yard-
man” rate, and a ’yardman special”
rate. While many men at the latter
level will be called yardman sp LS
many at this level will have titles
relating to their work, such as
stevedore, storehouse yardman,
wharfinger, or process yardman.

The move grew out of a wage pro-
blem in the wharfinger group. The
change here involves combining two
into one by revising the job
, and applying the upper rate
to the entire group.

The Lago Employee Council agreed
to the changes April 17, following
a series of meetings on the subject.

Spectator Sportsmanship

For years, island sports fans have seen many outstanding
examples of fine sportsmanship at Lago Sport Park Olympiads.

Most of the sportsmanship, though, has taken place on the pl
ing field. There is still a great need for better sportsmanst

y

p





in the stands — for more consideration by spectators toward
other spectators, and toward the athletes and officials on the

field.
Queen’s Birthday Olympiads

— as well as all events at the

Lago Sport Park — are put on for the enjoyment of all island
residents who like sports. However, people in the stands can’t
enjoy the activities at the Park if other spectators are dis-

courteous.

There are a number of ways

that a few spectators can mar

the enjoyment of many — by standing up in the front section

of the bleachers, by crowding the aisles, by ovez
the field and blocking the view of those in the st
profane language, and by misbehaving in other ways



flowing onto
ds, by using



To get the most pleasure out of the Olymp‘ad — as well as
any sports event — you have to be able to see what’s going on
down on the field. We hope that everyone who attends the
Olympiad next Monday will keep that in mind. If they do, the
several thousand island sports fans there can get the most en-
joyment out of the events on the field.

Process Survey
(continued from page 1)
If the present study gives good re-
sults, the Company will be able to
predict which Vocational School
students, for example, will make
good Process employees.
The Process study will be carried
out by Kermit Hasler, of the In-



dustrial Relations Department. Mr.
Hasler’s assignment with Lago is
another instance of the popular

trend of industry leaning heavily on
universities for scientifie help in
solving industrial problems. He is in
Aruba for a year’s assignment as a
psychology intern; he is working on
his doctor’s degree in industrial
psychology at New York University.
The work he accomplishes here he
plans to incorporate into his doctor’s
thesis.

Mr. Hasler will use several
methods to gather the material he
seeking. At first, he will spend time
around a particular unit just talking
to people and observing. These talks
will give him ideas as to what makes
a successful Process worker. Some
employees will be asked to fill out
questionnaires telling what they
think about Process work; thes
questionnaires will not be
ased on the information he gathers,
Mr. Hasler will see if he can develop
a method which will help determine
if a man will make a good Process
worker before he is assigned to the
Proc Department.

This study will have no effect on
the men presently doing Process
work; it won’t help them, and _ it












won't hurt them. It will help other

people in the future, though. By

finding out why some people succeed
don’t,
may possibly have a

Applications for Home Building
Foundation houses are taken by
Fred Beaujon at the Cashiers de-
partment in the Main Office. Mr.

Beaujon, secretary of the Foundat-
ion, has application blanks to be
filled out.

Any staff or regular employee is
eligible to apply.

Houses are allotted on a "First



come, first served” basis, according
to the order of names on the list.
(At present there are about 500

names on the waiting list. Arubans
have first choice on the houses
being built at Simeon Antonio).

When a group of houses is ready
for occupan they are allotted to
the employees at the top of the list.
A drawing is then made to determine
which house goes to which employee.

(Details of how the houses are
financed were carried in the Aruba

Flying Club Hunts
For Overdue Ship

Members of the Aruba Flying Club
responded promptly this month to a
Government request for assistance in
locating an 18-foot single masted
schooner that was overdue between
Curacao and Aruba. Despite an in-
tensive search of a wide area, how-
ever, no trace was found of the ship
or of the two men aboard.





The schooner, the Stella-Maris C-
49, had evidently run into trouble in
the unusually heavy seas of April 10
and 11, When it became known that
the ship was overdue, the Attorney
General’s office in Curacao asked the
Flying Club to start a search.





A search was immediately organiz-
ed by Club members, and four planes
went out. The large area covered by
the planes included the waters
around Aruba, between here and the
Paraguana Peninsula, along the
e n coastline of the Paraguana
Peninsula, and the wate between
Aruba and the Colombian coast,
well the Colombian coastline it-
f. Although a large number of
ships were sighted during the search,
no tr vas found of the missing
schooner.

Taking part in the



search were
