Variety of Equipment
Set Up for All Ages

Lago’s brand-new twenty-thousand

square foot playground is doing a
booming business. The playground
was officially turned over to
youngsters of Aruba at the Olympiad
on the Queen’s Birthday (see page
5 of this issue), and the many pice

of recreational equipment have been

the



running full speed ever since.

All of the children of the island
a welcomed at the playground
which is located at the south-west

corner of the Sport Park in San Ni-
cole There equipment for both
large and small children. Primary
purpose of the playground is to give
them a safe place for healthful

| creation.















The playground will be admini-
stered by the Lago Sport Park
creation Committee as a part of
Sport Park facilities. It will be espe-
cially useful to entertain children
while their parents tendi
athletic events at the par

Since every piece of equipment has
been in constant use every day, it is
difficult to say which catches the
fancy of the young: the most.
For tiny tots, the see-s and the



merry-go-round have much appeal.
More energetic children can ec»
on the swings, rings, and jungle gym.
Older youngsters can play on tl

Lago Employees Work 3
Million Safe Man Hours

Lago employees set an outstanding
new
new
sing

safety record last month. The
record went 67 days without a
losttime injury, or a total of
38,000 safe man hours, The
xtended from February 16
1 April 24,

Previous Company safety record
was 51 days or over 2,515,000
man hours — set from November 17,
1949 to January 6, 1950

The new record is particularly
outstanding, since it was made dur-
ing the: emergency PCAR_ turna-
round. At that time men were work-
ing around the clock at the Cat
Cracker; major repars were going
on, and there was a heavy concentra-
tion of men around the unit. During
their many hours of top priority
work, however, they never lost sight
of the importance of working safely. |

The Cat Cracker went back on
stream May 1, meeting exactly the
schedule hopefully set up early in
April. The tall stack signalled the
beginning of operations again after
two months, the longest shutdown
in the plant’s busy career. M C &,
Process, and TSD forces heaved a
sigh of relief that could be heard
even over the unit’s normal rumble.
The big job was marked throug-
hout by close cooperation, not only
among all levels of employees in the
departments involved but reaching
out as far as Baytown, Baton Rouge,

and New York.
An urgency to get the job done
the shortest possible time had
men from many crafts working 12,
14, and sometimes 16 hours at a
stretch...... holidays and weekends
were only working days to many
supervisors... telephone calls to New
York almost daily helped Lago to
profit from the experiences of other
refineries on similar jobs, and helped
to work out some of the long-range
problems connected with it... mate-

Supervisors still found time to carry
on their weekly five-minute safety
talks — and the men continued to
observe safe working practices.



"A voice from nowhere”
first one to use the new telephone
exchange which will go into opera-
tion a little after midnight on May
13. Usually the opening of a_ tele-

phone system is done with much fan-
fare, and the first words spoken are
carefully written beforehand. But
Lago’s system was put into operation
by a freak chain of events which re-



sulted in Marciano Arends hearing
a ghostly voi coming over the
wires long before connections had
been set up.

Marciano had been checking insu-
lators on the system about two

months ago and had pulled out some
of the paper tabs which separate
”"Hot” lines from inactive lines. Sud-



denly he heard the switches in the
new telephone system begin to click.
Signal lhghts hed, and different
parts of the machinery went into

operation. As he waited, amazed, the
four number connection was comple-
ted.

Study to Revise
C-of-L Index

Expert Here From U.S.
To Give Assistance

The Cost of Living Index on
which C-of-L bonuses are based is
now under study in a move to bring
it up-to-date and in line with the
average employee's present-day buy-
ing habits. The advisability of doing
this has been discussed with the
LEC, which has agreed.

Laurence De Trude arrived from
the United States May 3 to give
technical assistance in the study,
which will probably extend over a
two-month period

Mr. De Trude is from the Natio-
nal Industrial Conference Board,
Inc., a non-profit research organiza-
tion devoted to arch in the pro-
blems of industrial economics and
management. One of their specialties
is cost of living studies.

Since 1941, when it was establish-
ed, Lago’s index has been a_ useful
too! in helping employees to cope
with the rising costs that came first
with the war and later with conti-
nued periods of inflation. For ten
years it has been successful in keep-
ing employee earnings up with the
cost of living currently, with a mini-
mum time-lag. (This is a distinet ad-
vantage not enjoyed by a vast ma-
jovity of the working people of this
territory, or anywhere).

A cost of living index















is based lar-













gely on the kinds of thir and
quantity of things the ave per-
son buys. Lago’s index was set up in
1941 and over the years has closely
reflected employees’ buying habits

Very gradually however, over a long
period of time, there are changes in
the kinds of things available and also
in what employees prefer to buy.
The study now in progress aims to
determine what effect these gradual
have had on the results
the cost of living surveys,
in line with





changes
shown by
and to revise the index
them.

AN OUTSTANDING industrial safety record such as that
recently achieved by our plant requires the wholehearted coope-
ration of all employees. For their part in making their men
safety conscious, supervisors deserve great credit. Equal credit
goes to all employees who every hour, every day, have kept in
mind their own safety and that of their fellow employees. It is
with the greatest pleasure that I extend congratulations to all
Lagoites on this fine performance and record.

Parades, Sports

and Thanksgiving

At 6:00 on the morning of April 30 the bells of all the churches in

Aruba rang out across the island

to mark the birthday of Queen

Juliana. The sound of the bells was still in the air when the carillon of
the Protestant Church in Oranjestad began to play national songs.
In every part of Aruba... in Noord, Santa Cruz, Paradera, Sabaneta...

people were preparing for one of the
finest holiday celebrations in many
years. Children with shining scrub-



bed faces and orange or national
flags in their hands could be seen
everywhere. In Oranjestad, on the

docks, masters of sailboats were de-
corating their crafts for the race in
the afternoon. Athletes were making



last minute preparations for the
cont scheduled all through the
day, both at the Lago Sport Park



and other playing fields.





First event in San Nicolas was a
parade by 120 Marines in_ battle
uniform. They marched through
Bernhardstraat, B. v/d Veen Zep-
penfeldstraat, Lagoweg, Helfrich-
straat, Torrenstraat, and back up

Bernhardstraat.

Over 2000 children turned out for
the Aubade in San Nicolas (see pic-
ture above) held at 8:00 and Acting
Lt. Governor H.
on hand to hear the ring. An
hour later he addressed an equally
large group of schoolchildren who
sang at the Passangrahan in Oran-
jestad.

At 30 the Excelsior community
Brass Band made the streets of San
Nicolas resound with military musie,
and 600 scouts representing the
troops of Aruba marched through the
city.

The Marines also paraded in
Oranjestad and then spectators crow-
ded the sea front by L. G. Smith
Boulevard to watch the start of the
sailboat races. The boat ’De Arend”,
skippered by Leonco Orman came in
first after the hour and a half-long
race from the dock to the outer buoy
and bac Second and third place
winners were the "Virgin Del Car-



sling was











men (N. Hoek), and the Consuelo” ;

(D. Orman).
Awarded prizes for being the most

beautifully decorated boats were |
(ist) the "Reina Virginia” (2nd)
the ”Clara” and (3rd) the ”De

Arend”. Presentation of prizes was

made by A. van der Berg, head of
the Department of Public Works.
Another exciting event was the five
kilometer bicycle race held at the
Wilhelmina Sport Park Monday af-
ternoon. This was won by Siegfried
Palino. Second and third placers
were Willem Palm and Jacoba Palm.
Games for all, both young and old,
boys and girls, were held at four dif-
ferent spots on Monday afternoon...
Wilhelmina Sports Park in Oranje-
stad, Trappers field in Santa Cruz,
St. Philomena field at Paradera, and







‘ Acting Governor of the
Netherlands West Indies, F. A. Jas,
was welcomed upon his arrival at

Dakota Field. His first stop was the
Lago Sport Park where activities had
been going full blast all day, and he
followed his visit there with a recep-
tion in the Passangrahan in Oran-
jestad.

(Continued from page 1)

Feeling very much like Robinson
Crusoe discovering footprints on his
desert island, Marciano picked up the
call.
Hello?” he

"Hello.”,

you

PY Es; Arends. But who are
you

“You know me. This is Bobb. Elijah
Bobb. I’m just splicing cables down
in the manhole like alway What
ar yu so excited about?

"Listen Bobb,” Arends replied,
"whether you know it or not, you
just put through the first call on the
new exchange. I don’t know how
you did it, but you sure surprised
me!”

As it turned out later, Bobb had
been working on telephone lines in
the colony area and had put in a call
with his hand telephone to the old
exchange to ask for some equipment.
By a 1 out of 400 coincidence, Arends
had pulled the tabs that cleared that
number in the new exchange... and
the first call went through!

The conversion of the old exchange
to the new will go through just as
smoothly as Bobb’s call. All of the
insulating tabs will be pulled, the
old wires clipped, and the main
switch closed at 2:00 a.m. Sunday
morning. With minimum inconvenien-
ce the entire refinery will convert to
the new exchange, and the old ex-
change will be gradually disconnec-
ted.

When the switch-over is finished,
1600 lines will replace the 600 in the
present system. There will be no
more t*.an two phones on the same
line. So the completion on the vast
and complicated job of installing the
new exchange will mean ter, bet-
ter service in putting through your

Like Old Soldiers,

They Just Fade Away.

; At the stroke of midnight on April








the Invereaibo "just faded

am away.” The men who had served on

2 aie her were paid off and went their

s separate ways: most to other assign-

- “cone re ments in the Lake Fleet, a few on
vacation. None knew what would

bo

happen to the old 26-year old veteran
of the Lake Fleet whether she
would be sold as scrap, or sold to
‘another company for dredging pur-
poses.

When the old retired vessel is dis-
posed of, many of them may never
even hear about it. A seaman’s life
keeps him on the move, and some of
them may never know what happen-
ed to their old ship. To them, she
‘ i just faded away. To them, what re-
Returning from a last visit the mains of her are their warm memo-
retired Invercaibo, Capt. F. Ellis ies of their long years of service on
takes a farewell look at the old ship | the stalwart old ship.

PCa neo Luar ae a The lake tanker Invercaibo was
built in 1925 in Belfast. She came to
Aruba then and immediately entered
the lake service. Her first captain
was George Reid. She had a capacity
of 20,000 barrels, and was one of the
first vessels in the Lake Fleet. Until
San Nicolas harbor opened in 1927,
the ship docked outside Oranjestad
harbor alongside the old George G.
Henry, discharging her cargo of Ma-
racaibo crude into that ocean-going
tanker.

The Invereaibo remained in lake
service until the summer of 1938.
Then she was called on to perform a
new and difficult job: opening a
new channel through the tricky Ma-
racaibo Bar, one of the world’s most
unique waterways. The Outer Bar,
entrance to Lake Maracaibo and its
rich oil deposits, had been a tough
problem for mariners and scientists
for years. Because of waves, cur-
rents, tides, and wind, the Bar was
constantly shifting; this steady shift
created dangerous navigational dif-
ficulties for ships going in and out
of the Lake. The main channel of the
Bar moved at an average rate of
about 20 inches a day from east to
west. Constant shifting of the main
channel opened up a new smaller
channel through the Bar. To solve
the tricky navigational problems of
The bottom comes to the top! Here the Bar, the Invercaibo was called

sucked in by a suction pump through She was equipped with pipes and a | making

mud, and anything else on the ocean
bottom; this material was retained
in hoppers in the bottom of the ship
and later dumped at sea

The Invercaibo returned to Aruba
on October 7, 1 , and on October
12 started dredging operations on the
Maracaibo Outer Bar.

From October 12, 1938 until April
1951 except for drydocking
trips to Aruba every four months or
so — the Invercaibo was engaged in





29



dredging operations at the Maracai- |

bo Bar. During this period the ship
dredged up tremendous amounts of
sand, mud, shells, as well as a goodly
portion of bones, chains, rope, fossi-
lized trees, ship fittings, fish, and
other oddly assorted objects from the













ocean bottom. From the Outer Bar
she dredged up 9,525,110 cubic yards
of “cargo”; from the Inner Bar,
4,423,298 cubic yards; and from La
Arreaga, 43,950 cubie yards. This
makes a total of 1: 8 cubic
yards of cargo actually retained by

the ship and dumped. And this is
only a fraction — three percent —
of the actual material dredged. For
records show that, during its 12-
year dredging activities, the pumping
equipment actually handled an esti-
mated 466,411,900 cubic yards of
material.

Dredged material from the Outer
Bar was carried out into the sea and
dumped; from the Inner Bar, it was
dumped in deep water near Mara-
caibo.

Maracaibo, where the Invereaibo
had been such a familiar sight for
the last 12 years, didn’t allow the old
vessel to leave without notice. Before
she left for her last voyage to Aruba,
representatives of most of the oil
companies in Venezuela gathered
aboard ship for a farewell buffet
supper. The Invercaibo was so well-
known in Maracaibo and the Lake
that she had become a part of th«
scenery. Vacationing passengers
aboard Grace Liners, seeing the
sturdy old ship busily dredging the
Bar, always waved and shouted at
the crew.

Now, though, for the first time in
years, the familiar old “landmark”
is gone for good. The Invereaibo has
faded away. Behind her, she leaves
fond memories among the many men
who served aboard her during her
long and busy life. Behind her, also,
she leaves the memories of countless
others who saw the sturdy old craft

What will you always recall
in connection with your years
of service on the Invercaibo?

J. Aaron, Pumpman - 13 years Company
service, 9'4 on the Invercaibo. ‘

(He approached Capt. F. Ellis, now Port
Captain, to thank him for signing him on
9% years ago.) I’ll always remember the
good treatment I got from the officers on
th> Invereaibo. It’s been good service, and
I'll miss it. Right now I’m going to take a
vacation and go back to Surinam - I’m 6
years old and I haven’t been back there
for 38 years.











ioe Coffie, Dragtender - 15 years Company
service, 9 on the Invercaibo.

| Life looked pretty hard when I came
aboard the ship - I couldn’t get used to
being at all the time away from land
and not seeing anything. But it got easier,
| now I hate to leave the ship and start out
on a new job. I’ve been on the Invercaibo
a long time, and I think most of us hate
to leave the ship.





D. Frew, Chief Engineer - 16 years Com-
| pany service, 12 rs on the Invercaibo.

Both me and my dog Buda hate to leave
the Invercaibo. I first served on the ship
in 1927 when she was in the Aruba-Mara-
| caibo lake service. Buda’s been aboard for
| 10 ye I joined the ship again early in











| 1839, right after she entered dredging
| service on the Mar ibo Bar, and have
been with her ever since. It’s been good

| service and, like most of the men aboard,
| I hate to see the old ship retired.
|

'D. Martijn, Boatswain - 14 years Company
| service, 10 aboard the Invereaibo.

| The fish. I’ll never forget the fish. It v
| least seven feet long and had scales
as your hand. It was a meru, and weighed
over 500 pounds. (Despite arguments from
other crew members, Bos’n Martijn couldn’t
be budged from his belief that the fish
weighed over 500 pounds.) It was back in
1941 that the dredge hit this big fish and
killed it. We were always picking up
strange things in the dredge - fishing nets
and stuff like that - but I’ll always
member that fish. It weighed over
pounds!

A. Martijn, Dragtender - 13 years Com-
pany service, 6 on the Invereaibo.

I'll never forget how tired I always was
during my first month on the ship. I just
seemed to be tired all the time. Then I
began to get used to it and began to like
the work. You can’t find a better job than
this. I hate to see the old ship go. I’ll miss
it beeaus> it’s been a good place to work.

Remember when we took her to the States to be converted to a dredge?
On the eve of the retirement of the Invercaibo, men who have been closely
associated with the vessel talk over the old days. From the left are Capt.
F. Ellis, now Port Captain, who commanded the Invercaibo when it went
to the States in 1938 to be converted for dredging purpos Assistant Port
Engineer E. J. Robertson, who was chief engineer then; D. Frew, present
chief engineer who has been with the ship for the last 12 years; and the
ship’s last master, Capt. A. R. Woodrow, who was st mate in 1938.

Lago Employees Work 3
Million Safe Man Hours

Lago employees set an outstanding

sing

safety record last month. The
record went 67 days without a
losttime injury, or a total of
38,000 safe man hours, The
xtended from February 16
1 April 24,

Previous Company safety record
was 51 days or over 2,515,000
man hours — set from November 17,
1949 to January 6, 1950

The new record is particularly
outstanding, since it was made dur-
ing the: emergency PCAR_ turna-
round. At that time men were work-
ing around the clock at the Cat
Cracker; major repars were going
on, and there was a heavy concentra-
tion of men around the unit. During
their many hours of top priority
work, however, they never lost sight
of the importance of working safely. |

The Cat Cracker went back on
stream May 1, meeting exactly the
schedule hopefully set up early in
April. The tall stack signalled the
beginning of operations again after
two months, the longest shutdown
in the plant’s busy career. M C &,
Process, and TSD forces heaved a
sigh of relief that could be heard
even over the unit’s normal rumble.
The big job was marked throug-
hout by close cooperation, not only
among all levels of employees in the
departments involved but reaching
out as far as Baytown, Baton Rouge,

and New York.
An urgency to get the job done
the shortest possible time had
men from many crafts working 12,
14, and sometimes 16 hours at a
stretch...... holidays and weekends
were only working days to many
supervisors... telephone calls to New
York almost daily helped Lago to
profit from the experiences of other
refineries on similar jobs, and helped
to work out some of the long-range
problems connected with it... mate-
rials and equipment, some newly or-
dered and some originally scheduled
for arrival late this month, were

Supervisors still found time to carry
on their weekly five-minute safety
talks — and the men continued to
observe safe working practices.



"A voice from nowhere”
first one to use the new telephone
exchange which will go into opera-
tion a little after midnight on May
13. Usually the opening of a_ tele-

phone system is done with much fan-
fare, and the first words spoken are
carefully written beforehand. But
Lago’s system was put into operation
by a freak chain of events which re-



sulted in Marciano Arends hearing
a ghostly voi coming over the
wires long before connections had
been set up.

Marciano had been checking insu-
lators on the system about two

months ago and had pulled out some
of the paper tabs which separate
”"Hot” lines from inactive lines. Sud-



denly he heard the switches in the
new telephone system begin to click.
Signal lhghts hed, and different
parts of the machinery went into

operation. As he waited, amazed, the
four number connection was comple-
ted.

Study to Revise
C-of-L Index

Expert Here From U.S.
To Give Assistance

The Cost of Living Index on
which C-of-L bonuses are based is
now under study in a move to bring
it up-to-date and in line with the
average employee's present-day buy-
ing habits. The advisability of doing
this has been discussed with the
LEC, which has agreed.

Laurence De Trude arrived from
the United States May 3 to give
technical assistance in the study,
which will probably extend over a
two-month period

Mr. De Trude is from the Natio-
nal Industrial Conference Board,
Inc., a non-profit research organiza-
tion devoted to arch in the pro-
blems of industrial economics and
management. One of their specialties
is cost of living studies.

Since 1941, when it was establish-
ed, Lago’s index has been a_ useful
too! in helping employees to cope
with the rising costs that came first
with the war and later with conti-
nued periods of inflation. For ten
years it has been successful in keep-
ing employee earnings up with the
cost of living currently, with a mini-
mum time-lag. (This is a distinet ad-
vantage not enjoyed by a vast ma-
jovity of the working people of this
territory, or anywhere).

A cost of living index















is based lar-













gely on the kinds of thir and
quantity of things the ave per-
son buys. Lago’s index was set up in
1941 and over the years has closely
reflected employees’ buying habits

Very gradually however, over a long
period of time, there are changes in
the kinds of things available and also
in what employees prefer to buy.
The study now in progress aims to
determine what effect these gradual
have had on the results
the cost of living surveys,
in line with





changes
shown by
and to revise the index
them.

AN OUTSTANDING industrial safety record such as that
recently achieved by our plant requires the wholehearted coope-
ration of all employees. For their part in making their men
safety conscious, supervisors deserve great credit. Equal credit
goes to all employees who every hour, every day, have kept in
mind their own safety and that of their fellow employees. It is
with the greatest pleasure that I extend congratulations to all
Lagoites on this fine performance and record.

Parades, Sports

and Thanksgiving

At 6:00 on the morning of April 30 the bells of all the churches in

Aruba rang out across the island

to mark the birthday of Queen

Juliana. The sound of the bells was still in the air when the carillon of
the Protestant Church in Oranjestad began to play national songs.
In every part of Aruba... in Noord, Santa Cruz, Paradera, Sabaneta...

people were preparing for one of the
finest holiday celebrations in many
years. Children with shining scrub-



bed faces and orange or national
flags in their hands could be seen
everywhere. In Oranjestad, on the

docks, masters of sailboats were de-
corating their crafts for the race in
the afternoon. Athletes were making



last minute preparations for the
cont scheduled all through the
day, both at the Lago Sport Park



and other playing fields.





First event in San Nicolas was a
parade by 120 Marines in_ battle
uniform. They marched through
Bernhardstraat, B. v/d Veen Zep-
penfeldstraat, Lagoweg, Helfrich-
straat, Torrenstraat, and back up

Bernhardstraat.

Over 2000 children turned out for
the Aubade in San Nicolas (see pic-
ture above) held at 8:00 and Acting
Lt. Governor H.
on hand to hear the ring. An
hour later he addressed an equally
large group of schoolchildren who
sang at the Passangrahan in Oran-
jestad.

At 30 the Excelsior community
Brass Band made the streets of San
Nicolas resound with military musie,
and 600 scouts representing the
troops of Aruba marched through the
city.

The Marines also paraded in
Oranjestad and then spectators crow-
ded the sea front by L. G. Smith
Boulevard to watch the start of the
sailboat races. The boat ’De Arend”,
skippered by Leonco Orman came in
first after the hour and a half-long
race from the dock to the outer buoy
and bac Second and third place
winners were the "Virgin Del Car-



sling was











men (N. Hoek), and the Consuelo” ;

(D. Orman).
Awarded prizes for being the most

beautifully decorated boats were |
(ist) the "Reina Virginia” (2nd)
the ”Clara” and (3rd) the ”De

Arend”. Presentation of prizes was

made by A. van der Berg, head of
the Department of Public Works.
Another exciting event was the five
kilometer bicycle race held at the
Wilhelmina Sport Park Monday af-
ternoon. This was won by Siegfried
Palino. Second and third placers
were Willem Palm and Jacoba Palm.
Games for all, both young and old,
boys and girls, were held at four dif-
ferent spots on Monday afternoon...
Wilhelmina Sports Park in Oranje-
stad, Trappers field in Santa Cruz,
St. Philomena field at Paradera, and







‘ Acting Governor of the
Netherlands West Indies, F. A. Jas,
was welcomed upon his arrival at

Dakota Field. His first stop was the
Lago Sport Park where activities had
been going full blast all day, and he
followed his visit there with a recep-

you

“You know me. This is Bobb. Elijah
Bobb. I’m just splicing cables down
in the manhole like alway What
ar yu so excited about?

"Listen Bobb,” Arends replied,
"whether you know it or not, you
just put through the first call on the
new exchange. I don’t know how
you did it, but you sure surprised
me!”

As it turned out later, Bobb had
been working on telephone lines in
the colony area and had put in a call
with his hand telephone to the old
exchange to ask for some equipment.
By a 1 out of 400 coincidence, Arends
had pulled the tabs that cleared that
number in the new exchange... and
the first call went through!

The conversion of the old exchange
to the new will go through just as
smoothly as Bobb’s call. All of the
insulating tabs will be pulled, the
old wires clipped, and the main
switch closed at 2:00 a.m. Sunday
morning. With minimum inconvenien-
ce the entire refinery will convert to
the new exchange, and the old ex-
change will be gradually disconnec-
ted.

When the switch-over is finished,
1600 lines will replace the 600 in the
present system. There will be no
more t*.an two phones on the same
line. So the completion on the vast
and complicated job of installing the
new exchange will mean ter, bet-

PCa neo Luar ae a The lake tanker Invercaibo was
built in 1925 in Belfast. She came to
Aruba then and immediately entered
the lake service. Her first captain
was George Reid. She had a capacity
of 20,000 barrels, and was one of the
first vessels in the Lake Fleet. Until
San Nicolas harbor opened in 1927,
the ship docked outside Oranjestad
harbor alongside the old George G.
Henry, discharging her cargo of Ma-
racaibo crude into that ocean-going
tanker.

The Invereaibo remained in lake
service until the summer of 1938.
Then she was called on to perform a
new and difficult job: opening a
new channel through the tricky Ma-
racaibo Bar, one of the world’s most
unique waterways. The Outer Bar,
entrance to Lake Maracaibo and its
rich oil deposits, had been a tough
problem for mariners and scientists
for years. Because of waves, cur-
rents, tides, and wind, the Bar was
constantly shifting; this steady shift
created dangerous navigational dif-
ficulties for ships going in and out
of the Lake. The main channel of the
Bar moved at an average rate of
about 20 inches a day from east to
west. Constant shifting of the main
channel opened up a new smaller
channel through the Bar. To solve
the tricky navigational problems of

and later dumped at sea

The Invercaibo returned to Aruba
on October 7, 1 , and on October
12 started dredging operations on the
Maracaibo Outer Bar.

From October 12, 1938 until April
1951 except for drydocking
trips to Aruba every four months or
so — the Invercaibo was engaged in

dredging operations at the Maracai- |

bo Bar. During this period the ship
dredged up tremendous amounts of
sand, mud, shells, as well as a goodly
portion of bones, chains, rope, fossi-
lized trees, ship fittings, fish, and
other oddly assorted objects from the













ocean bottom. From the Outer Bar
she dredged up 9,525,110 cubic yards
of “cargo”; from the Inner Bar,
4,423,298 cubic yards; and from La
Arreaga, 43,950 cubie yards. This
makes a total of 1: 8 cubic
yards of cargo actually retained by

the ship and dumped. And this is
only a fraction — three percent —
of the actual material dredged. For
records show that, during its 12-
year dredging activities, the pumping
equipment actually handled an esti-
mated 466,411,900 cubic yards of
material.

Dredged material from the Outer
Bar was carried out into the sea and
dumped; from the Inner Bar, it was
dumped in deep water near Mara-
caibo.

Maracaibo, where the Invereaibo
had been such a familiar sight for
the last 12 years, didn’t allow the old
vessel to leave without notice. Before
she left for her last voyage to Aruba,
representatives of most of the oil
companies in Venezuela gathered
aboard ship for a farewell buffet
supper. The Invercaibo was so well-
known in Maracaibo and the Lake
that she had become a part of th«
scenery. Vacationing passengers
aboard Grace Liners, seeing the
sturdy old ship busily dredging the
Bar, always waved and shouted at
the crew.

Now, though, for the first time in
years, the familiar old “landmark”
is gone for good. The Invereaibo has
faded away. Behind her, she leaves
fond memories among the many men
who served aboard her during her
long and busy life. Behind her, also,
she leaves the memories of countless
others who saw the sturdy old craft

What will you always recall
in connection with your years
of service on the Invercaibo?

J. Aaron, Pumpman - 13 years Company
service, 9'4 on the Invercaibo. ‘

(He approached Capt. F. Ellis, now Port
Captain, to thank him for signing him on
9% years ago.) I’ll always remember the
good treatment I got from the officers on
th> Invereaibo. It’s been good service, and
I'll miss it. Right now I’m going to take a
vacation and go back to Surinam - I’m 6
years old and I haven’t been back there
for 38 years.











ioe Coffie, Dragtender - 15 years Company
service, 9 on the Invercaibo.

| Life looked pretty hard when I came
aboard the ship - I couldn’t get used to
being at all the time away from land
and not seeing anything. But it got easier,
| now I hate to leave the ship and start out
on a new job. I’ve been on the Invercaibo
a long time, and I think most of us hate
to leave the ship.





D. Frew, Chief Engineer - 16 years Com-
| pany service, 12 rs on the Invercaibo.

Both me and my dog Buda hate to leave
the Invercaibo. I first served on the ship
in 1927 when she was in the Aruba-Mara-
| caibo lake service. Buda’s been aboard for
| 10 ye I joined the ship again early in











| 1839, right after she entered dredging
| service on the Mar ibo Bar, and have
been with her ever since. It’s been good

| service and, like most of the men aboard,
| I hate to see the old ship retired.

| The fish. I’ll never forget the fish. It v
| least seven feet long and had scales
as your hand. It was a meru, and weighed
over 500 pounds. (Despite arguments from
other crew members, Bos’n Martijn couldn’t
be budged from his belief that the fish
weighed over 500 pounds.) It was back in
1941 that the dredge hit this big fish and
killed it. We were always picking up
strange things in the dredge - fishing nets
and stuff like that - but I’ll always
member that fish. It weighed over
pounds!

I'll never forget how tired I always was
during my first month on the ship. I just
seemed to be tired all the time. Then I
began to get used to it and began to like
the work. You can’t find a better job than
this. I hate to see the old ship go. I’ll miss
it beeaus> it’s been a good place to work.

Remember when we took her to the States to be converted to a dredge?
On the eve of the retirement of the Invercaibo, men who have been closely
associated with the vessel talk over the old days. From the left are Capt.
F. Ellis, now Port Captain, who commanded the Invercaibo when it went
to the States in 1938 to be converted for dredging purpos Assistant Port
Engineer E. J. Robertson, who was chief engineer then; D. Frew, present
chief engineer who has been with the ship for the last 12 years; and the
ship’s last master, Capt. A. R. Woodrow, who was st mate in 1938.
