Glamor & Geographic Glimpses

Ever want to go to Australia? If
so and if you’re anything like
Herbert Gaba of TSD — you'd better
be mighty careful. He had a hanker-
ing to see Australia. By the time he
was ready to fulfill his desire, it had
anded into a trip around the
world. He figured that it was so
far to Australia anyy he might
well return to Aruba by _ just
keeping on going instead of travel-
ling back over the same route. By
the time he had returned to Aruba,
he had seen not only Australia, but
a large part of the rest of the world
as well.

"It was a swell trip”, Herb said
when he returned to Aruba May 28.
"I’m pretty tired of travelling.”

Where did he go? Not counting
places like Cairo, where he stopped
only long enough for breakfast,
Herb managed to cram in visits to
Honolulu; ind Melbourne in
Austral 1 in Indone:
Singapore; Bangkok, Siam; Calcutta,

achi, Pakistan; Rome;
; Amsterdam; London; Paris;
















and Paramaribo.

Total plane fare, from Aruba to
New York to San Francisco and on

through the points mentioned back
to Aruba, was Fils. 3714 In addit-
ion to that, Herb lost a hundred
francs, the equivalent of sixty cents
Dutch, at the Monte Carlo gaming
tables.

Although he flew on eight airlines,
the major part of his trip was made
via KLM, which provided wonderful
service throughout.

KLM honored the round-the-world

Cooperation by All

The excellent cooperation shown by everyone involved in the
present Cost of Living study was remarked on in the recent |
meeting between members of the Industrial Relations Dept. and |
the Lago Employee Council. (See story page 1). As a result of
this cooperation, when the survey is completed Lago employees
can be assured that their cost of living index is based on the
most up-to-date buying information available.

It is realized that the development has taken place rapidly;
under these circumstances it has been difficult to ensure full |
understanding of a project of this nature. The assistance of an |
outside expert was essential, and the project had to be developed
within the time he is available.

However, problems have been worked out, and a fine degree |
of cooperation is being shown. This cooperation shows that
employees generally realize the benefit of having an accurate
base for recognizing cost of living changes.

The Lago Employee Council has been especially helpful. In
a communication to employees they stated ”...we are very
strongly of the opinion that it will be to the best interest of our
constituents... we are urging the entire employee group, and
especially the buyers, to cooperate 100% if the desired results
are to be accomplished.”

There are 275 employees directly involved in the survey
— 242 persons being interviewed, and 33 doing the interviewing.
These persons, members of the LEC, and others involved in
administering and evaluating the survey have a vitally impor-
tant job. Their contributions to the entire Lago employee body
can be great.

Jersey to Offer Temporary
Jobs to College Teachers

Standard Oil Company (New Jer-
sey) and its affiliated companies
plan to engage the services of
limited number of college educato
to work with their administrative
staffs for up to two years, Frank
W. Abrams, chairman of the Board
of Directors, announced last month.

Under a program designed to
supplement the work of some of its
executive personnel with — special
é available in
ld, Jersey Standard and its
liated companies will seek the ser-















vices of ten or more professors and |
instructors who can be released from
teaching for at least a year because
of reduced college enrollments.
Educators employed will get de-
finite job assignments in special
fields where the companies feel ad-
ditional research or study needed,



the Board Chairman explained. He
emphasized that they would not
replace any of the Company’s regular
employe yr occupy positions that
would be filled by normal employ-
ment or promotion.

The faculty members will be re-
cruited as suitable candidates become
available, and it is hoped that most










of the appointments can be made
prior to the opening of the next
academic year in September. Those

chosen will remain on their college
or university lls, but the schools
will be reimbursed by the Company





for the services of the educators.
Educators employed under the
program will receive the same
monthly salary they earned on the
campus plus bonus adjustments for



certain special expenses involved in
their temporary change of location
Employment will be for one ¢
with provisions in appropriate
r renewal.

The teachers to be employed may
drawn from any field of acade-
mie activity, but it is expected that
those working in the social sciences
will predominate. Apart from com-
petence, the qualifications are that
they should (1) have had three years
2) be actively
teaching at the college
instructor level or above, and (3)
plan to return to active teaching
after completion of their Company
assignment.

Mr. Abrams said that in addition
to augmenting the Company’s_res-
and special study work in
certain fields, the program was
designed to help colleges keep teach-
ing staffs intact during the present
period of dwindling college enroll-
ments, to help broaden the experience
of educators, and to inject fresh
thinking into the day-to-day work
of the Company. If the program
should attract the interest of a sig-

nificant number of cther busine
organi ions, it could make a con-
|tribution towards relieving any

unemployment problems in the aca-



demic ranks of coll and univer-
sities that may occur during the
next several years. well as greatly



improving the under nding between
the campus and industry.



Lago Officers Elected

At the organization meeting of
» Lago Board of Directors on May
officers were elected. Those
ed were J. J. Horigan, president;



Lanning and O. S. Mingus,

Aruba’s Sea Shells

A Big Variety of Strange Shells
Can Be Found on Aruba’s Shores

Each year Aruba’s coastline reaps a rich harvest of marine life cast
up by the sea. Most unusual are the sea shells which have every color
and shape, and range in size from a grain of sand to the giant Queen
Conch.

For those who collect shells, Aruba is a treasure house; 225 diffe-
rent shells have been identified here compared to the average 100 or
150 that would be found on equal-length shores elsewhere. But this is
only a small part of the sea shell family (which can trace its history
back 3 million years) for there are 100,000 different types of shells.

Most fertile beaches of Aruba are found on the south and west
sides, although shells can also be picked up on the rugged north coast.

33 a wor-






















have lost one of its oldest and most
significant landmarks. It is the
building now housing the TSD
Equipment Inspection Group, locat-
ed on the seaside next to Gate No. 2.
History of the building dates back
to Lago’s earliest days in San Ni-
colas, in 1928.

The building was erected that
year, and housed the Marine Office
and the Accounting group. Those
were the bustling days of Lago’s
birth, San Nicolas harbor was new-
ly opened, with one narrow entrance
and a cramped interior; on land were
a handful of tanks, eight topping
stills almost completed, and eight
cracking stills just begun. It was
still several months — on January
29, 1929 — before Lago’s first still
would go into operation.

Working in the building back in
1928 were T. C. Brown, Andrew
Tully, J. M. Oduber, Hugh Orr (all
of whom are still with Lago’s Ac-
counting Department), and W. V.
Stephens and Lunn Easten, of the
Marine Department. Just across the
st from them was the old White
s formerly the summer home
of John G. Eman.

The Accounting people remained in
the building for only a few months,
moving into the old M&C Office
early in 19 Marine, however, re-
mained there for 14 years, until the
present Marine Office was built in
1942.

The old building has indeed seen
much of Lago’s history pass by. It’s
more than lived out a long useful
life, and in a short time will com-
pletely pass away from the Aruban
scene. In fact, part of it departed
several months ago, when it was ne-
ssary to slice off one corner of the
building to make room for the new
refinery road.

A copy of an old Company report
to the Government lists the physical
properties of the Marine Department
in 1928. Among the few items on
the list is "one temporary office
building”. That “temporary” building
is the one that will soon, 23 years
later, be torn down. Taking its }
will be another "temporary”
ure: the building now being con-
structed in the Lago Colony for the
Equipment Inspection Group.

Equipment Inspection Building to be
located in the Lago Colony. The
building is going up in front of
Bachelor Quarters 6, between BQ 4
and the Post Office. It is estimated
that the structure will be finished the
latter part of this year.

The new building, a temporary
structure, will be of steel frame anc
corrugated iron construction. It wil:
be the same type building as the
present M&C Administration Build
ing, although of a different shape
the EIG building will be in the shape
of a rectangle.

Construction of the new finge1
pier required the relocation of the
main refinery road. This in turr
made it necessary to relocate the
EIG quarters. Several months ago
when the new road was under con
struction, it was necessary to actually
shave off one corner of the ola
building to make way for the road.

In addition, the present EIG
building is old — dating back te
1928 and no longer provides
adequate facilities for the increa
EIG personnel and activities

Although it might seem strange to
move this group out of the refinery
into the Colony area, it actually
isn’t. In the old days, an effort was
made to locate the Equipment In-
spection Group more nearly in the
center of the refinery. The plant was
small then, and EIG men could walk
to practically any location where
they had to work. Now, though, the
area covered by EIG men covers a
vast distance; they work all the way
from the snow pile at the lower end
of the refinery to the Hospital.
Transportation is needed to get to
most jobs. Therefore, a central re-
finery location is no longer as im-
portant as it once was. Added to
this, of course, is the fact that there
just isn’t a suitable location for the
group in the main refinery area.

Operations in the new building
will be of a quiet nature. Relocating
it from the refinery to the Colony
should not disturb anyone.

A major handicap in the present
EIG building is that there is no ma-
terial testing laboratory. This lack
will be provided for in the new
quarters; an important feature of
the new building will be that more
testing equipment will be available
invite

As the Lago Refinery has grown
to its present large size, the funct-
ions of the Equipment Inspection
Group have greatly increased. Today,
its job of maintaining refinery equip-
ment in safe operating condition is
more important than ever. At the
same time, increased personnel have
been added to take care of the ex-
panding activities of the Group. Th
new building should provide for th
increased activities and increased
personnel. And for the EIG men
themselves, they will be able to enjoy
considerably — better working con-
ditions than those they now
accustomed to in the historic old
building that has been their home
for the past several years.

Arubas Sea Shells
A Big Variety of Strange Shells
Can Be Found on Arubas Shores
Each year Arubas coastline reaps a rich harvest of marine life cast
up by the sea Most unusual are the sea shells which have every color
and shape and range in size from a grain of sand to the giant Queen
Conch
For those who collect shells Aruba is a treasure house 225 diffe
rent shells have been identified here compared to the average 100 or
150 that would be found on equal length shores elsewhere But this is
only a small part of the sea shell family which can trace its history
back 3 million years for there are 100000 different types of shells
Most fertile beaches of Aruba are found on the south and west
sides although shells can also be picked up on the rugged north coast

Glamor & Geographic Glimpses

Ever want to go to Australia? If
so and if you’re anything like
Herbert Gaba of TSD — you'd better
be mighty careful. He had a hanker-
ing to see Australia. By the time he
was ready to fulfill his desire, it had
anded into a trip around the
world. He figured that it was so
far to Australia anyy he might
well return to Aruba by _ just
keeping on going instead of travel-
ling back over the same route. By
the time he had returned to Aruba,
he had seen not only Australia, but
a large part of the rest of the world
as well.

"It was a swell trip”, Herb said
when he returned to Aruba May 28.
"I’m pretty tired of travelling.”

Where did he go? Not counting
places like Cairo, where he stopped
only long enough for breakfast,
Herb managed to cram in visits to
Honolulu; ind Melbourne in
Austral 1 in Indone:
Singapore; Bangkok, Siam; Calcutta,

achi, Pakistan; Rome;
; Amsterdam; London; Paris;
















and Paramaribo.

Total plane fare, from Aruba to
New York to San Francisco and on

through the points mentioned back
to Aruba, was Fils. 3714 In addit-
ion to that, Herb lost a hundred
francs, the equivalent of sixty cents
Dutch, at the Monte Carlo gaming
tables.

Although he flew on eight airlines,
the major part of his trip was made
via KLM, which provided wonderful
service throughout.

KLM honored the round-the-world
traveller by presenting him with a
small clock when he left Aruba, and

Cooperation by All

The excellent cooperation shown by everyone involved in the
present Cost of Living study was remarked on in the recent |
meeting between members of the Industrial Relations Dept. and |
the Lago Employee Council. (See story page 1). As a result of
this cooperation, when the survey is completed Lago employees
can be assured that their cost of living index is based on the
most up-to-date buying information available.

It is realized that the development has taken place rapidly;
under these circumstances it has been difficult to ensure full |
understanding of a project of this nature. The assistance of an |
outside expert was essential, and the project had to be developed
within the time he is available.

However, problems have been worked out, and a fine degree |
of cooperation is being shown. This cooperation shows that
employees generally realize the benefit of having an accurate
base for recognizing cost of living changes.

The Lago Employee Council has been especially helpful. In
a communication to employees they stated ”...we are very
strongly of the opinion that it will be to the best interest of our
constituents... we are urging the entire employee group, and
especially the buyers, to cooperate 100% if the desired results
are to be accomplished.”

There are 275 employees directly involved in the survey
— 242 persons being interviewed, and 33 doing the interviewing.
These persons, members of the LEC, and others involved in
administering and evaluating the survey have a vitally impor-
tant job. Their contributions to the entire Lago employee body
can be great.

Jersey to Offer Temporary
Jobs to College Teachers

Standard Oil Company (New Jer-
sey) and its affiliated companies
plan to engage the services of
limited number of college educato
to work with their administrative
staffs for up to two years, Frank
W. Abrams, chairman of the Board
of Directors, announced last month.

Under a program designed to
supplement the work of some of its
executive personnel with — special
é available in
ld, Jersey Standard and its
liated companies will seek the ser-















vices of ten or more professors and |
instructors who can be released from
teaching for at least a year because
of reduced college enrollments.
Educators employed will get de-
finite job assignments in special
fields where the companies feel ad-
ditional research or study needed,



the Board Chairman explained. He
emphasized that they would not
replace any of the Company’s regular
employe yr occupy positions that
would be filled by normal employ-
ment or promotion.

The faculty members will be re-
cruited as suitable candidates become
available, and it is hoped that most










of the appointments can be made
prior to the opening of the next
academic year in September. Those

chosen will remain on their college
or university lls, but the schools
will be reimbursed by the Company





for the services of the educators.
Educators employed under the
program will receive the same
monthly salary they earned on the
campus plus bonus adjustments for



certain special expenses involved in
their temporary change of location
Employment will be for one ¢
with provisions in appropriate
r renewal.

The teachers to be employed may
drawn from any field of acade-
mie activity, but it is expected that
those working in the social sciences
will predominate. Apart from com-
petence, the qualifications are that
they should (1) have had three years
2) be actively
teaching at the college
instructor level or above, and (3)
plan to return to active teaching
after completion of their Company
assignment.

Mr. Abrams said that in addition
to augmenting the Company’s_res-
and special study work in
certain fields, the program was
designed to help colleges keep teach-
ing staffs intact during the present
period of dwindling college enroll-
ments, to help broaden the experience
of educators, and to inject fresh
thinking into the day-to-day work
of the Company. If the program
should attract the interest of a sig-

















engaged in












nificant number of cther busine
organi ions, it could make a con-
|tribution towards relieving any

unemployment problems in the aca-



demic ranks of coll and univer-
sities that may occur during the
next several years. well as greatly



improving the under nding between
the campus and industry.



Lago Officers Elected

At the organization meeting of
» Lago Board of Directors on May
officers were elected. Those
ed were J. J. Horigan, president;



Lanning and O. S. Mingus,
presidents; and T. C. Brown,

were appointed as z
and Mr. Garber was named assistant
treasurer.

At the annual meeting of Lago’s

Aruba’s Sea Shells

A Big Variety of Strange Shells
Can Be Found on Aruba’s Shores

Each year Aruba’s coastline reaps a rich harvest of marine life cast
up by the sea. Most unusual are the sea shells which have every color
and shape, and range in size from a grain of sand to the giant Queen
Conch.

For those who collect shells, Aruba is a treasure house; 225 diffe-
rent shells have been identified here compared to the average 100 or
150 that would be found on equal-length shores elsewhere. But this is
only a small part of the sea shell family (which can trace its history
back 3 million years) for there are 100,000 different types of shells.

Most fertile beaches of Aruba are found on the south and west
sides, although shells can also be picked up on the rugged north coast.

33 a wor-






















have lost one of its oldest and most
significant landmarks. It is the
building now housing the TSD
Equipment Inspection Group, locat-
ed on the seaside next to Gate No. 2.
History of the building dates back
to Lago’s earliest days in San Ni-
colas, in 1928.

The building was erected that
year, and housed the Marine Office
and the Accounting group. Those
were the bustling days of Lago’s
birth, San Nicolas harbor was new-
ly opened, with one narrow entrance
and a cramped interior; on land were
a handful of tanks, eight topping
stills almost completed, and eight
cracking stills just begun. It was
still several months — on January
29, 1929 — before Lago’s first still
would go into operation.

Working in the building back in
1928 were T. C. Brown, Andrew
Tully, J. M. Oduber, Hugh Orr (all
of whom are still with Lago’s Ac-
counting Department), and W. V.
Stephens and Lunn Easten, of the
Marine Department. Just across the
st from them was the old White
s formerly the summer home
of John G. Eman.

The Accounting people remained in
the building for only a few months,
moving into the old M&C Office
early in 19 Marine, however, re-
mained there for 14 years, until the
present Marine Office was built in
1942.

The old building has indeed seen
much of Lago’s history pass by. It’s
more than lived out a long useful
life, and in a short time will com-
pletely pass away from the Aruban
scene. In fact, part of it departed
several months ago, when it was ne-
ssary to slice off one corner of the
building to make room for the new
refinery road.

A copy of an old Company report
to the Government lists the physical
properties of the Marine Department
in 1928. Among the few items on
the list is "one temporary office
building”. That “temporary” building
is the one that will soon, 23 years
later, be torn down. Taking its }
will be another "temporary”
ure: the building now being con-
structed in the Lago Colony for the
Equipment Inspection Group.

Equipment Inspection Building to be
located in the Lago Colony. The
building is going up in front of
Bachelor Quarters 6, between BQ 4
and the Post Office. It is estimated
that the structure will be finished the
latter part of this year.

The new building, a temporary
structure, will be of steel frame anc
corrugated iron construction. It wil:
be the same type building as the
present M&C Administration Build
ing, although of a different shape
the EIG building will be in the shape
of a rectangle.

Construction of the new finge1
pier required the relocation of the
main refinery road. This in turr
made it necessary to relocate the
EIG quarters. Several months ago
when the new road was under con
struction, it was necessary to actually
shave off one corner of the ola
building to make way for the road.

In addition, the present EIG
building is old — dating back te
1928 and no longer provides
adequate facilities for the increa
EIG personnel and activities

Although it might seem strange to
move this group out of the refinery
into the Colony area, it actually
isn’t. In the old days, an effort was
made to locate the Equipment In-
spection Group more nearly in the
center of the refinery. The plant was
small then, and EIG men could walk
to practically any location where
they had to work. Now, though, the
area covered by EIG men covers a
vast distance; they work all the way
from the snow pile at the lower end
of the refinery to the Hospital.
Transportation is needed to get to
most jobs. Therefore, a central re-
finery location is no longer as im-
portant as it once was. Added to
this, of course, is the fact that there
just isn’t a suitable location for the
group in the main refinery area.

Operations in the new building
will be of a quiet nature. Relocating
it from the refinery to the Colony
should not disturb anyone.

A major handicap in the present
EIG building is that there is no ma-
terial testing laboratory. This lack
will be provided for in the new
quarters; an important feature of
the new building will be that more
testing equipment will be available
invite

As the Lago Refinery has grown
to its present large size, the funct-
ions of the Equipment Inspection
Group have greatly increased. Today,
its job of maintaining refinery equip-
ment in safe operating condition is
more important than ever. At the
same time, increased personnel have
been added to take care of the ex-
panding activities of the Group. Th
new building should provide for th
increased activities and increased
personnel. And for the EIG men
themselves, they will be able to enjoy
considerably — better working con-
ditions than those they now
accustomed to in the historic old
building that has been their home
for the past several years.
