(R&S Man Makes Third
Rescue at Harbor

”Man Overboard!” The shout went
bout 1 a.m., December 28, on
Finger Pier No. Working the
12 to 8 shift ne was Max-
well E. Pantophlet, man who has
twice before acted heroically to save
the lives of othe





up











He raced to a spot on the wharf
where lights were flashing and
looking o the side of the con-|
crete pier he saw a man floating face

down in the water. Without hesitat- |
ion, Pantophlet jumped down to save
him.





At the scene of the accident, a
system of pipes and I-beam girders |
runs parallel to Pier No. 2. The}

pipes are four or five feet above the |
water. It was onto these structures |
that Pantophlet leaped. In order to
reach his man, he had to hang on
| like an acrobat, with one arm and a
leg wrapped around an I-beam.

| From his precarious position,
|Pantophlet was just able to reach
{his quarry, although he skinned his
| forearm in doing so. Then other men
|} up on the pier joined the rescue and
|by grasping Pantophlet’s belt while |
he held on to the unconscious victim,
both men were pulled to safety.
Later, when asked if Someone had |



used a rope to wrap around his|
middle in order to haul him up,|}
Pantophlet looked at his belt and

with a soft smile, said ”No. This is
a good belt.”

Still thinking only of saving the
victim, Pantophlet began applying
artificial respiration until, a few
moments later, he was relieved by
the chief mate of the Esso Reading,
a ship docked nearby.

After several anxious minutes
during which time there appeared to
be no life in the man, the victim
began to breath again. Pantophlet
thinks the man might not have sur-
vived if he had been pulled from
the water and artificial respiration

lice, the Lago ambulance took the
|man to the Dispensary where he was
treated and then transferred to the











n Pedro Hospital in Oranjestad. |
At the Dispensary, the victim was
identified a L. Allen, 30, from|



County Cork, Ireland, an able sea-
man from the British-owned tanker, |
Busen Rollo.

Allen had been on shore leave for |

the evening and was returning to
his ship when the accident took
place. His ship was to sail that

evening for an extended voyage into
the whaling grounds of the Antartic
where it will refuel whaling ships
and then take on whale oil for ship-
ment to market. Allen signed on the
ship in England last December 3.

Irene Jacobs is back in Aruba with

full use of her once badly damaged throat. She came back December
23, just in time to celebrate Christmas at home after getting special
surgical treatment in the United States.

At the airport, Irene was greeted by officials of the Aruba Lions
Club, sponsors of the fund-raising campaign that sent her to the States
for the operations that brought her back to full health. Irene told

the Lion Club officials that she

every night.” Then, before going
home, 13-year old Irene went directly
to church.

At her home — which she found
freshly painted and flying the Dutch
flag to mark the happy event —
Irene found the first Christmas tree
she had ever had in her own home.
(Most of Irene’s Christmases have
been spent in hospitals.) Under the

tree were many presents from friends |

and relatives.

In the United States, Irene had
been under the care of the world
famous throat specialist Dr. Che
lier Jackson. Dr. Jackson had figured
in another famous operation on a
girl’s throat, and that girl, too, lived
under the flag of Holland. The girl,
from Amsterdam, was getting ready
to be married and accidentally swal-
lowed an open pin. When no one was
able to remove the pin, Fls. 11,000
was quickly sed and the girl was
sent to the United States where she
was operated on by Dr. Jackson.

The doctor devised a unique method
for the operation and was able to
remove the pin quickly in an operat-
ion that received widespread attent-
ion in the medical world. For his
vices, all the doctor would accept as
payment was the pin, which he kept
as a souvenir.

At the Temple University Hospital

_ in Philadelphia, Dr. Jackson perform-
ed a series of delicate-operations on
Irene. These completed a long train
of treatments begun here in Aruba
by Dr. A. A. Schlacter of Oranjestad,
whose ir ance that she could be

events that finally placed Irene in

his tour of the center by E.F. Welch,

Also on the tour were G. Kok,

and G. Amelink, Director of Aruba’s
technical schools.

Mr. Stebenitsky came to Aruba in
order to survey vocational teaching
and visited both government
schools as well as the one at Lago.
Although Surinam has had a vocat-
ional training program for the past
16 years, it has been on a limited
basis. Officials now are planning to |
expand the program.

by larger technical schools in the
area and to learn about the methods

The Industrial Relations depart-
ment held its annual Christmas party
the afternoon of December 22 in the
American Legion Home. More than
70 employees and guests of the de-
partment were on hand.

Christmas carols, led by a choral
group of women employees of the de-
partment, were sung by the guests,
and sandwiches and soft drinks were
served. Songs, from American _hill-
billy to Latin love songs, were
presented by various entertainers,
and several management represent-
atives spoke briefly to the group.

With George Hemstreet as chair-
man, other committee members in-
cluded Oliver T. Rock, decorations;
Mrs. Mildred Chung, catering; Car-
men Gravenhorst, finance; E. M.
O’Brien, sound system and refresh-
ments; and Hubert Richardson and
Fisher Chichester, entertainment.

Several days previously, the in-
structors in the Training division en-
tertained guests at a Christmas party
at the Winter Garden. Dancing enter-
tainment, and refreshments made the
occasion a festive one.

Government and Lago Employees Bow in Christmas Season

Govt. Party
(Cont. from page 1)

prizes were awarded to holders of
lucky, free tickets, but in the excite-
ment their names could not be
obtained.

J. J. Horigan, p dent of Lago,
started the festivities with a short
speech welcoming to the party mem-
bers of the Aruba government with
whom the company has had close
contact during the past year. Noting
that the party was again back at its
old site, the Marine Club, he said
that last year the Golf Club was
tried as a place for the party but had
been found to be "too roomy.” After
thanking the government workers for
their cooperation with Lago during
the past year, Horigan introduced Dr.
L. C. Kwartsz, Lt. Governor of
Aru

Taking note of the traditional
nature of the party that has been an
annual event for a "couple of dozen
years,” Dr. Kwart aid, in part, "It
may be a coincidence that this
gathering always takes place a few
days before Christmas, the day on
which we have to remember there
must reign peace on earth and a
good unde anding between our
fellow ci and ourselves.”

Dr. Kwartsz, however, said he did
not believe it to be a coincidence, but
*that this day is deliberately chosen,
as this traditional party is based on
a sound mutual understanding and on
the conviction that nothing worth-
while ever is achieved without an
open-hearted mutual confidence in
each other.” ;

After the serious portion of his
message had been given, the Gov-
ernor started the entertainment by
telling several humorous stories. Fol-
lowing the Governor’s speech, the
anthems of three nations were sung,
”Wilhelmus Van sauwe,” "God
Save the King,” and "The

ngled Banner.”

Several groups of entertainers
furnished songs and humor with an
international flavor. Syd Tucker

several w in the hospital Irene
went home, still unable to use her
throat.

Only a series of delicate operations
would cure her, but her mother
— feeling that it was a miracle that
| Irene vy still living — was reluctant
to have further surgery performed.
Eventually, after the girl’s plight had
come to the attention of the Aruba
Lions Club, Dr. A. A. Schlachter
| performed several operations which
| improved the girl’s condition.

However, Dr. Schlachter realized |
that the final operations could not |
be performed here, and when they
became aware of this, the Lions be-
gan a fund-raising campaign to send
Irene to the United States for treat-
ment. As a result of letters and direct
appeals, nearly everyone in Aruba
contributed to the Irene Jacobs fund.

Athletic and civie groups held

necessary operations were made by
the Lions. |

All along the way, friendly hands
and willing hearts offered Irene their
|help. Two airlines — Pan American
and KLM — offered free passage to
the United States for Irene. And
when it looked as though previous }
arrangements to meet Irene in New
York were likely to go awry, Lago
| officials cabled the States to see that
|she would be met by company re-

Lions Club arrangements were com-
| pleted in time and Richard Naar, a}





former member of the local Lions, |
met Irene and escorted her to Phila-
delphia.

In Philadelphia, it wasn’t all

hospital beds and surgery rooms for
Irene. Not confined to bed, she went
to a Catholic high school and made
|many sight-seeing trips around the
historic city. She learned to speak |
English with a thorough-going fluen-
cy that includes a distinct Philadel- |
phia accent. Now that she’s back |
home, Irene insists on using English
almost exclusively so she won't lose
her grasp of the language.

Besides school and
Irene had many visitor
parties. The North Philadelphia Lions

To help keep her spirits high and |
to see that she had everything she |
needed, John Jardell and Dr. Ruben
Frank of Philadelphia kept in con-

one very good demonstration of what
they think can be accomplished when
people try to help one another. The
Aruba Lions Club first took an
active part in Irene’s case in 1948,

‘| some eight months after the accident
| occurred.

At that time Monte
uro was the club’s_ president
when he was succeeded in that post
by Carlos L. Juliao, another well-
known Aruba merchant, Maduro was
named special committeeman in
charge of the Irene Jacobs campaign.

Since then, both men have been
the work of aiding Ivene
back to full health. When she arrived
at Dakota field early in the morning
on the Sunday before Christmas,

Mad-

and







both men were there to meet her.
At present, the Aruba Lions Club,
which was formed in 1947, is small,

with a membership of 30. But for the
past two y the International
Lions association has awarded _ the
group its Merit of Honor

Prompted by the belief that even
as a small group they can contribute
to the welfare of the island and its
people, the Aruba Lions Club has
already organized many committees
for aiding youths, prompting civic
improvements, and in addition the
Club has helped many _ individuals.

ars

Small wonder, then, that littie Irene
Jacobs, upon her return fromthe
United States, said that she would

never forget the Lions.

Something unique in home-furnish-

with the opening of a model home
on Kamerlingh Onnes Street, Oranje-
stad. Each room has been completely
furnished, each in a different basic
style, and the house is open for in-
spection. Above is a view of the

toilet facilities.

The lottery proved to be very
popular and the tickets sold easily
The group may repeat the project
after a year.

Winner of the first prize, a Buick,
was Joseph Halley of the Shipyard
Office, with No. 657. He had been
intending to buy a car, and the
Scouts made it easy at the reason-

electric refrigerator went to George

the washing machine was won by
Juan Kock.

for all the guests.

Although the fine food and the ge-
nerous refreshments comprised the
"main eevnt” of the evening for
many, other entertainment was abun-
dantly provided. Mrs. Ina van de
Winkel, of Oranjestad, well known
under the name Ina Verwoerd to
radio fans in Holland, sang several
songs in Dutch.

A chance to match their strength
against a trained weight-lifter was
given the Marines by T. Frederick of
the Storehouse. In a unique demon-
stration, Frederick invited the Mar-
ines to compete with him in an im-
promtu contest, a challenge they
cheerfully accepted. They lost out,
however, in the face of Frederick’s
training, practice and conditioning.

Accordian music was presented by
W. Tuk, of Oranjestad; and with
M « C’s Karel Eg acting as em-

More than 600 presents were give

by Aruba merchants. Lago’s Safety
Department gave the visitors 100
leather wallets, and in addition, each

guest received a Lago calendar.

The Story of The Tin Soldier

There were once five
tin soldiers who were brothers, for
they had all been made from the
same old tin spoon. They were very
grand in their new red and blue
uniforms, as they shouldered their
guns and looked straight before
them.

The first thing the soldiers ever
heard were the words, ”Tin Soldiers!”
shouted by a little boy, who clapped |
his hands with delight when the lid

s taken off the box in which they
lived. ‘

It was the little
boy’s birthday, and
the soldiers had
been given to him
for a birthday pre-
sent. The little
boy took the sol-
diers out of the
box, and stood
them on the table
They were exac
alike, except one,
who had only one leg. He was the
last one to be made, and there had
not been enough tin to finish him;
but he stood as firmly on one leg as

and twenty |

| the others did on two.

There were many other playthings
on the table where the soldiers stood;
but the most attractive one w a
pretty little paper castle. The win-
dows were very tiny, but. still

inside of the rooms. In front of the
castle stood little trees around a piece
of looking-glass, which looked like a
lake of clear water. Beautiful little
swans were swimming about the
lake and were reflected on its glassy
surface. ;

This was all very pretty; but the|

prettiest thing of all was a tiny little
lady, who stood at the open door of
the castle. She also was made of pa-
per; but her dress was of the thinnest
muslin, with a narrow blue ribbon
like a scarf over her shoulders
At the middle of the ribbon wa
shining tinsel rose as big as
whole face

The little lady stretced out both her
arms, for she was a dancer, and she
raised one foot so high that the tin
soldier could not see it at all, and
thought that she also had but one leg.

"She would make a fine wife for
me,” said the soldier; only she is so
grand and lives in a castle, while I
have only a box to live in. Besides,
there are five and twenty of us in the
box, and there is no room for her.
Still I must try to become acquainted
with her.”

Then he lay down at full length
behind the snuffbox, where he could
watch the dainty lady, who still stood
on one leg without losing her balance.

When evening came, the tin soldiers
were put into the box — that is, all
of them except the soldier with one
leg, who was left standing on the
table and the people of the house
went to bed. Then the toys began to
play and have jolly times on the
table. The tin soldiers rattled in their
box, for they wanted to get out and
play with the others; but they could
not lift the lid. The nuter: r turned
somersaults, and the pencil jumped
about the table. They made so much
noise that the canary woke up and
began to sing in the middle of the
night. Only the tin soldier and the
dancer remained in their places.
She stretched out both her arms
and stood on tiptoe as firmly
he did on his one leg. He never turned
his eyes from her, even for a single
moment.

The clock struck twelve. Up flew
the lid of the snuffbox, but there was
no snuff in it; for it was not a real
snuffbox, but only the house of a go-
blin named Jack-in-the-Box.

The goblin looked very fierce and
said, ’Tin soldier, keep your eyes to
yourself.”

The tin soldier pretended not to
hear him, and that made the goblin
very angry. He snapped his teeth and
said, Only wait ’til tomorrow! Then
you'll see!”

The next morning the children put
the tin soldier in the window. No one
knows whether it was the goblin or
the wind that did it, but it is certain
that the soldier fell from the third
story window to the street below. It
was a terrible fall. He landed on his
head, and his bayonet wedged in be-
ty 2 some stones and held him there
with his one leg straight up in the
air.

Then it began to rain. The drops
fell faster and faster until there was
a regular shower. When the shower
was over, two boys who were idling
about the street happened to pass by.

”Look,” said one of them, "here is
a tin soldier. He ought to have a boat
to sit in.”

her

as

one
could look through them and see the |

So they made a boat from a news-
paper, and stood the tin soldier in it
and sent him sailing down the gutter.

| Then the two boys ran along beside

him clapping their hands. The waves
were very high and the current was
strong. The paper boat rocked up and
down, and it sometimes turned around

y that the soldier trembled;

yed at his post. He shoul-
dered his musket and looked straight
before him.

All at once, the boat shot into a
long drain, where it was as dark as

it was in the box
where the other
tin soldiers lived.

"Where am I go-
ing now ?” thought
he "This must
surely be the go-
blin’s fault. Oh! if
only the little la-
dy were with me
in the boat, I
should not care

how dark it was.”

A huge water-rat that lived under
the bridge soon came in sight.

"Have you a pass?” asked the rat;
but the tin soldier kept silent and held
his musket tighter than ever.

The stream carried the tin soldier
on more rapidly than ever, and he
could already see daylight where the
rain ended. Then he heard a rushing
sound that was enough to frighten
the bravest man. At the end of the
drain the water fell into a canal;

yas as dangerous for his tiny
going over a waterfall would
a boat.

The little paper boat dashed on, but
the soldier stood as firmly as he
could, to show that he was not afraid.
The boat whirled around three or
four times until it was filled with
water. Then it began to sink. The tin
soldier stood up to his neck in water,
while the boat sank deeper and dee-
|per. Soon the water closed over his
|head. He thought of the pretty little
|dancer whom he should never
again and he S very sad.

Then the ver boat became soft
'and was torn to pieces. The soldier
dropped down deeper into the water,
| but was at once swallowed by a huge
fish.

Oh, how dark it was inside the
fish! It was even darker than it was
in the drain, and there was no room
for him to move; but the tin soldier
kept his courage and lay at full
length with his gun on his shoulder.

The fish swam about, making the
most fearful movements, but at last
it became quite still. Then a flash of
| lightning seemed to dart through him.
Daylight appeared, and a voice called
out, s I am alive, the tin soldier!”
The fish had been caught, taken to
the market and sold to the cook who
took him to the kitchen and cut him
open with a large knife. She picked
up the soldier, held him by the waist
between her thumb and finger, and
carried him into another room where
everybody was surprised to see this
wonderful soldier who traveled about
inside a fish. But he was not at all

see
Ww

| proud.

They put him on the table. What
curious things happen in the world!
The soldier was in the very same
room in which he had been before. He
saw the same children, the same toys
stood on the table; and there was the
same castle with the pretty little dan-
cer. She was still standing on one
foot and holding up the other. She
was as firm and as faithful as he was
He was almost moved to tears. He
looked at her and she looked at him;
but they said nothing.

Then one of little boys took up the
tin soldier and threw him into the
stove. He gave no reason for doing
this, so it must have been the fault
of the goblin.

The flames gathered around him
and the heat was terribl but he
could not tell whether the heat came
from the fire or from love. His bright
red and blue colors were gone, but
whether that had happened on his
travels or had been caused by sorrow,
no one could say. He looked at the
little lady, and she looked at him. He
felt himself melting away, but still
he stood there with his gun on his
shoulder. ‘

Suddenly the door of the room
opened, and the wind caught up the
dancer and whirled her right into the
stove beside the tin soldier. Instantly,
she was caught up by the flames and
was gone. The tin soldier melted down
to a lump, and the next morning when
the maid took out the ashes, she
found him in the shape of a little tin
heart. Nothing remained of the dan-
cer but the tinsel rc and that was
burned as black as a coal.

(R&S Man Makes Third
Rescue at Harbor

”Man Overboard!” The shout went
bout 1 a.m., December 28, on
Finger Pier No. Working the
12 to 8 shift ne was Max-
well E. Pantophlet, man who has
twice before acted heroically to save
the lives of othe





up











He raced to a spot on the wharf
where lights were flashing and
looking o the side of the con-|
crete pier he saw a man floating face

down in the water. Without hesitat- |
ion, Pantophlet jumped down to save
him.





At the scene of the accident, a
system of pipes and I-beam girders |
runs parallel to Pier No. 2. The}

pipes are four or five feet above the |
water. It was onto these structures |
that Pantophlet leaped. In order to
reach his man, he had to hang on
| like an acrobat, with one arm and a
leg wrapped around an I-beam.

| From his precarious position,
|Pantophlet was just able to reach
{his quarry, although he skinned his
| forearm in doing so. Then other men
|} up on the pier joined the rescue and
|by grasping Pantophlet’s belt while |
he held on to the unconscious victim,
both men were pulled to safety.
Later, when asked if Someone had |



used a rope to wrap around his|
middle in order to haul him up,|}
Pantophlet looked at his belt and

with a soft smile, said ”No. This is
a good belt.”

Still thinking only of saving the
victim, Pantophlet began applying
artificial respiration until, a few
moments later, he was relieved by
the chief mate of the Esso Reading,
a ship docked nearby.

After several anxious minutes
during which time there appeared to
be no life in the man, the victim
began to breath again. Pantophlet
thinks the man might not have sur-
vived if he had been pulled from
the water and artificial respiration

|man to the Dispensary where he was
treated and then transferred to the











n Pedro Hospital in Oranjestad. |
At the Dispensary, the victim was
identified a L. Allen, 30, from|



County Cork, Ireland, an able sea-
man from the British-owned tanker, |
Busen Rollo.

Allen had been on shore leave for |

the evening and was returning to
his ship when the accident took
place. His ship was to sail that

evening for an extended voyage into
the whaling grounds of the Antartic
where it will refuel whaling ships
and then take on whale oil for ship-
ment to market. Allen signed on the
ship in England last December 3.

Irene Jacobs is back in Aruba with

full use of her once badly damaged throat. She came back December
23, just in time to celebrate Christmas at home after getting special
surgical treatment in the United States.

At the airport, Irene was greeted by officials of the Aruba Lions
Club, sponsors of the fund-raising campaign that sent her to the States
for the operations that brought her back to full health. Irene told

the Lion Club officials that she

every night.” Then, before going
home, 13-year old Irene went directly
to church.

At her home — which she found
freshly painted and flying the Dutch
flag to mark the happy event —
Irene found the first Christmas tree
she had ever had in her own home.
(Most of Irene’s Christmases have
been spent in hospitals.) Under the

tree were many presents from friends |

and relatives.

In the United States, Irene had
been under the care of the world
famous throat specialist Dr. Che
lier Jackson. Dr. Jackson had figured
in another famous operation on a
girl’s throat, and that girl, too, lived
under the flag of Holland. The girl,
from Amsterdam, was getting ready
to be married and accidentally swal-
lowed an open pin. When no one was
able to remove the pin, Fls. 11,000
was quickly sed and the girl was
sent to the United States where she
was operated on by Dr. Jackson.

The doctor devised a unique method
for the operation and was able to
remove the pin quickly in an operat-
ion that received widespread attent-
ion in the medical world. For his
vices, all the doctor would accept as
payment was the pin, which he kept
as a souvenir.

At the Temple University Hospital

_ in Philadelphia, Dr. Jackson perform-
ed a series of delicate-operations on
Irene. These completed a long train
of treatments begun here in Aruba
by Dr. A. A. Schlacter of Oranjestad,
whose ir ance that she could be

his tour of the center by E.F. Welch,

Mr. Stebenitsky came to Aruba in
order to survey vocational teaching
and visited both government

Although Surinam has had a vocat-

16 years, it has been on a limited
basis. Officials now are planning to |
expand the program.

The Industrial Relations depart-
ment held its annual Christmas party
the afternoon of December 22 in the
American Legion Home. More than
70 employees and guests of the de-
partment were on hand.

Christmas carols, led by a choral
group of women employees of the de-
partment, were sung by the guests,
and sandwiches and soft drinks were
served. Songs, from American _hill-
billy to Latin love songs, were
presented by various entertainers,
and several management represent-
atives spoke briefly to the group.

With George Hemstreet as chair-
man, other committee members in-
cluded Oliver T. Rock, decorations;
Mrs. Mildred Chung, catering; Car-
men Gravenhorst, finance; E. M.
O’Brien, sound system and refresh-
ments; and Hubert Richardson and
Fisher Chichester, entertainment.

Several days previously, the in-
structors in the Training division en-
tertained guests at a Christmas party
at the Winter Garden. Dancing enter-
tainment, and refreshments made the
occasion a festive one.

Government and Lago Employees Bow in Christmas Season

Govt. Party
(Cont. from page 1)

prizes were awarded to holders of
lucky, free tickets, but in the excite-
ment their names could not be
obtained.

J. J. Horigan, p dent of Lago,
started the festivities with a short
speech welcoming to the party mem-
bers of the Aruba government with
whom the company has had close
contact during the past year. Noting
that the party was again back at its
old site, the Marine Club, he said
that last year the Golf Club was
tried as a place for the party but had
been found to be "too roomy.” After
thanking the government workers for
their cooperation with Lago during
the past year, Horigan introduced Dr.
L. C. Kwartsz, Lt. Governor of
Aru

Taking note of the traditional
nature of the party that has been an
annual event for a "couple of dozen
years,” Dr. Kwart aid, in part, "It
may be a coincidence that this
gathering always takes place a few
days before Christmas, the day on
which we have to remember there
must reign peace on earth and a
good unde anding between our
fellow ci and ourselves.”

Dr. Kwartsz, however, said he did
not believe it to be a coincidence, but
*that this day is deliberately chosen,
as this traditional party is based on
a sound mutual understanding and on
the conviction that nothing worth-
while ever is achieved without an
open-hearted mutual confidence in
each other.” ;

After the serious portion of his
message had been given, the Gov-
ernor started the entertainment by
telling several humorous stories. Fol-
lowing the Governor’s speech, the
anthems of three nations were sung,
”Wilhelmus Van sauwe,” "God
Save the King,” and "The

ngled Banner.”

Several groups of entertainers
furnished songs and humor with an
international flavor. Syd Tucker

icatur Val Linam and

singer and guitar player, with a
rendition of several Western songs;

Irene (Cont. from page 2) |
several w in the hospital Irene
went home, still unable to use her
throat.

Only a series of delicate operations
would cure her, but her mother
— feeling that it was a miracle that
| Irene vy still living — was reluctant
to have further surgery performed.
Eventually, after the girl’s plight had
come to the attention of the Aruba
Lions Club, Dr. A. A. Schlachter
| performed several operations which
| improved the girl’s condition.

However, Dr. Schlachter realized |
that the final operations could not |
be performed here, and when they
became aware of this, the Lions be-
gan a fund-raising campaign to send
Irene to the United States for treat-
ment. As a result of letters and direct
appeals, nearly everyone in Aruba
contributed to the Irene Jacobs fund.

Athletic and civie groups held
| special programs with paid admission
|assigning the proceeds to Irene’s
| fund. In all, over Fls. 9.000 was rais-
}ed and final preparations for the |
necessary operations were made by
the Lions. |

All along the way, friendly hands
and willing hearts offered Irene their
|help. Two airlines — Pan American
and KLM — offered free passage to
the United States for Irene. And
when it looked as though previous }
arrangements to meet Irene in New
York were likely to go awry, Lago
| officials cabled the States to see that
|she would be met by company re-
| presentatives. As it worked out, the
Lions Club arrangements were com-
| pleted in time and Richard Naar, a}





former member of the local Lions, |
met Irene and escorted her to Phila-
delphia.

In Philadelphia, it wasn’t all

hospital beds and surgery rooms for
Irene. Not confined to bed, she went
to a Catholic high school and made
|many sight-seeing trips around the
historic city. She learned to speak |
English with a thorough-going fluen-
cy that includes a distinct Philadel- |
phia accent. Now that she’s back |
home, Irene insists on using English
almost exclusively so she won't lose
her grasp of the language.

Besides school and

To help keep her spirits high and |
to see that she had everything she |
needed, John Jardell and Dr. Ruben

stant contact with her. Her family

one very good demonstration of what
they think can be accomplished when
people try to help one another. The
Aruba Lions Club first took an
active part in Irene’s case in 1948,

‘| some eight months after the accident
| occurred.

At that time Monte
uro was the club’s_ president
when he was succeeded in that post
by Carlos L. Juliao, another well-
known Aruba merchant, Maduro was
named special committeeman in
charge of the Irene Jacobs campaign.

Since then, both men have been
the work of aiding Ivene

at Dakota field early in the morning
on the Sunday before Christmas,

both men were there to meet her.
At present, the Aruba Lions Club,
which was formed in 1947, is small,

with a membership of 30. But for the
past two y the International
Lions association has awarded _ the
group its Merit of Honor

Prompted by the belief that even
as a small group they can contribute
to the welfare of the island and its
people, the Aruba Lions Club has
already organized many committees
for aiding youths, prompting civic
improvements, and in addition the
Club has helped many _ individuals.

Small wonder, then, that littie Irene
Jacobs, upon her return fromthe
United States, said that she would

never forget the Lions.

for all the guests.

Although the fine food and the ge-
nerous refreshments comprised the
"main eevnt” of the evening for
many, other entertainment was abun-
dantly provided. Mrs. Ina van de
Winkel, of Oranjestad, well known
under the name Ina Verwoerd to
radio fans in Holland, sang several
songs in Dutch.

A chance to match their strength
against a trained weight-lifter was
given the Marines by T. Frederick of
the Storehouse. In a unique demon-

cheerfully accepted. They lost out,
however, in the face of Frederick’s
training, practice and conditioning.

Accordian music was presented by
W. Tuk, of Oranjestad; and with
M « C’s Karel Eg acting as em-

More than 600 presents were give

by Aruba merchants. Lago’s Safety
Department gave the visitors 100
leather wallets, and in addition, each

guest received a Lago calendar.

The Story of The Tin Soldier

There were once five
tin soldiers who were brothers, for
they had all been made from the
same old tin spoon. They were very
grand in their new red and blue
uniforms, as they shouldered their
guns and looked straight before
them.

The first thing the soldiers ever
heard were the words, ”Tin Soldiers!”
shouted by a little boy, who clapped |
his hands with delight when the lid

s taken off the box in which they
lived. ‘

It was the little
boy’s birthday, and
the soldiers had
been given to him
for a birthday pre-
sent. The little
boy took the sol-
diers out of the
box, and stood
them on the table
They were exac
alike, except one,
who had only one leg. He was the
last one to be made, and there had
not been enough tin to finish him;
but he stood as firmly on one leg as

and twenty |

| the others did on two.

There were many other playthings
on the table where the soldiers stood;
but the most attractive one w a
pretty little paper castle. The win-
dows were very tiny, but. still

inside of the rooms. In front of the
castle stood little trees around a piece
of looking-glass, which looked like a
lake of clear water. Beautiful little
swans were swimming about the
lake and were reflected on its glassy
surface. ;

This was all very pretty; but the|

prettiest thing of all was a tiny little
lady, who stood at the open door of
the castle. She also was made of pa-
per; but her dress was of the thinnest
muslin, with a narrow blue ribbon
like a scarf over her shoulders
At the middle of the ribbon wa
shining tinsel rose as big as
whole face

The little lady stretced out both her
arms, for she was a dancer, and she
raised one foot so high that the tin
soldier could not see it at all, and
thought that she also had but one leg.

"She would make a fine wife for
me,” said the soldier; only she is so
grand and lives in a castle, while I
have only a box to live in. Besides,
there are five and twenty of us in the
box, and there is no room for her.
Still I must try to become acquainted
with her.”

Then he lay down at full length
behind the snuffbox, where he could
watch the dainty lady, who still stood
on one leg without losing her balance.

When evening came, the tin soldiers
were put into the box — that is, all
of them except the soldier with one
leg, who was left standing on the
table and the people of the house
went to bed. Then the toys began to
play and have jolly times on the
table. The tin soldiers rattled in their
box, for they wanted to get out and
play with the others; but they could
not lift the lid. The nuter: r turned
somersaults, and the pencil jumped
about the table. They made so much
noise that the canary woke up and
began to sing in the middle of the
night. Only the tin soldier and the
dancer remained in their places.
She stretched out both her arms
and stood on tiptoe as firmly
he did on his one leg. He never turned
his eyes from her, even for a single
moment.

The clock struck twelve. Up flew
the lid of the snuffbox, but there was
no snuff in it; for it was not a real
snuffbox, but only the house of a go-
blin named Jack-in-the-Box.

The goblin looked very fierce and
said, ’Tin soldier, keep your eyes to
yourself.”

The tin soldier pretended not to
hear him, and that made the goblin
very angry. He snapped his teeth and
said, Only wait ’til tomorrow! Then
you'll see!”

The next morning the children put
the tin soldier in the window. No one
knows whether it was the goblin or
the wind that did it, but it is certain
that the soldier fell from the third
story window to the street below. It
was a terrible fall. He landed on his
head, and his bayonet wedged in be-
ty 2 some stones and held him there
with his one leg straight up in the
air.

Then it began to rain. The drops
fell faster and faster until there was
a regular shower. When the shower
was over, two boys who were idling
about the street happened to pass by.

”Look,” said one of them, "here is
a tin soldier. He ought to have a boat
to sit in.”

her

as

one
could look through them and see the |

So they made a boat from a news-
paper, and stood the tin soldier in it
and sent him sailing down the gutter.

| Then the two boys ran along beside

him clapping their hands. The waves
were very high and the current was
strong. The paper boat rocked up and
down, and it sometimes turned around

y that the soldier trembled;

yed at his post. He shoul-
dered his musket and looked straight
before him.

All at once, the boat shot into a
long drain, where it was as dark as

it was in the box
where the other
tin soldiers lived.

"Where am I go-
ing now ?” thought
he "This must
surely be the go-
blin’s fault. Oh! if
only the little la-
dy were with me
in the boat, I
should not care

how dark it was.”

A huge water-rat that lived under
the bridge soon came in sight.

"Have you a pass?” asked the rat;
but the tin soldier kept silent and held
his musket tighter than ever.

The stream carried the tin soldier
on more rapidly than ever, and he
could already see daylight where the
rain ended. Then he heard a rushing
sound that was enough to frighten
the bravest man. At the end of the
drain the water fell into a canal;

yas as dangerous for his tiny
going over a waterfall would
a boat.

The little paper boat dashed on, but
the soldier stood as firmly as he
could, to show that he was not afraid.
The boat whirled around three or
four times until it was filled with
water. Then it began to sink. The tin
soldier stood up to his neck in water,
while the boat sank deeper and dee-
|per. Soon the water closed over his
|head. He thought of the pretty little
|dancer whom he should never
again and he S very sad.

Then the ver boat became soft
'and was torn to pieces. The soldier
dropped down deeper into the water,
| but was at once swallowed by a huge
fish.

Oh, how dark it was inside the
fish! It was even darker than it was
in the drain, and there was no room
for him to move; but the tin soldier
kept his courage and lay at full
length with his gun on his shoulder.

The fish swam about, making the
most fearful movements, but at last
it became quite still. Then a flash of
| lightning seemed to dart through him.
Daylight appeared, and a voice called
out, s I am alive, the tin soldier!”
The fish had been caught, taken to
the market and sold to the cook who
took him to the kitchen and cut him
open with a large knife. She picked
up the soldier, held him by the waist
between her thumb and finger, and
carried him into another room where
everybody was surprised to see this
wonderful soldier who traveled about
inside a fish. But he was not at all

see
Ww

| proud.

They put him on the table. What
curious things happen in the world!
The soldier was in the very same
room in which he had been before. He
saw the same children, the same toys
stood on the table; and there was the
same castle with the pretty little dan-
cer. She was still standing on one
foot and holding up the other. She
was as firm and as faithful as he was
He was almost moved to tears. He
looked at her and she looked at him;
but they said nothing.

Then one of little boys took up the
tin soldier and threw him into the
stove. He gave no reason for doing
this, so it must have been the fault
of the goblin.

The flames gathered around him
and the heat was terribl but he
could not tell whether the heat came
from the fire or from love. His bright
red and blue colors were gone, but
whether that had happened on his
travels or had been caused by sorrow,
no one could say. He looked at the
little lady, and she looked at him. He
felt himself melting away, but still
he stood there with his gun on his
shoulder. ‘

Suddenly the door of the room
opened, and the wind caught up the
dancer and whirled her right into the
stove beside the tin soldier. Instantly,
she was caught up by the flames and
was gone. The tin soldier melted down
to a lump, and the next morning when
the maid took out the ashes, she
found him in the shape of a little tin
heart. Nothing remained of the dan-
cer but the tinsel rc and that was
burned as black as a coal.
