Acid Plant Without

One of the plant’s best-known
figures left the scene January 27
with the retirement of Robert V.

tendent in the Process Department.
The Acid Plant has been under his



direct supervision for 22 years; while
the operation will be in good hands, it
is hard to believe that the sulphur
will keep on turning into sulphuric
acid without him. At the same time

New Pedestrian

Gate Opened

pedestrian gate, located
north of the Acid Plant and across
the street from the San Nicholas
Postoffice, was officially opened to-
day. The opening of the gate was
decided upon by Management in or-
der that employees working in the
western end of the refinery would
not be required to tra all the way
|to Gate No. 1 and then double back
|through San Nicholas.

With the opening of the entrance,
a new parking lot near the gate was
also put into service. The gate, solely
for pedestrian traffic, will be used by
employees only and will be open dur-
ing normal changes of working hours
and at noon tin

In order to further assist Lago
employees working in the western
end of the r ry, foremen of that
area are canv ing their men to
find out what time cards need be
placed at the new gate.

The idea of a gate in that part
of the refinery was first brought to |
attention at an August (1950) mee
ing of the Special Problems Advisory
| Committee.

Second Annual |
Stag Barbecue |
Well Received

Unity and fellowship reigned sup-
reme last Saturday night as regular
employee representatives and mem-
bers of staff enjoyed the festivities
of the second annual stag barbecue.
The Aruba Golf Club provided the
setting for the affair.

The aspect of unity was stressed
by the principal speakers which in-
cluded O. S. Mingus, general mana-
ger; Juste de Vries, chairman of
SPAC; B. K. Chand, vice-president
of LEC, and Frank Griffin, general
superintendent. In particular, Mr. de |
Vries spoke on the unity aspect stat- |
ing that no time is spent better |
than being brethren in unity.”

He told the group that ”money
alone cannot improve employee relat-
ions.”” He commended the barbecue,
its purpose, and the fellowship of the
evening, but stressed that fellowship
and unity "depend solely on how
everyone treats his fellow employee.”
He reminded the gathering that the
island’s economy depends upon Lago
and concluded by expressing his |
tanks to Management for the even- |
ing.

Following his introduction by Hen- |
ry Chippendale, Mr. Mingus stressed |
the interchange of ideas. He stated
that with the representation system, |
id are interchanged resulting in|
better understanding and happiness. !
Mr. Griffin informed the gathering
that the operative outlook is opto-
mistic. "Last year was a successful
y ” he said, "and we all learned a
lot.” He further stated that the
and committees can take
pride in the things they have ac-
complished. He expressed confidence |
in the representative groups and the |
men they represent. ”Our future, |
your future, and the future of Aruba |
depends upon you and all employees,”















he concluded.

B. K. Chand, vice-president of
LEC commented on the increasing
effectiveness of the plan.

tertainment program was J. W. Ar-
rias. On the program were Benny

a short welcoming speech and intro-
duced J. H. Wubbold, Marketing Di-
vision representative who explained
the new system to the group with
the aid of a large diagram of the in-
stallation.

Then J. J. Horigan, president,
threw the main power switch which
started the pump motors and Mr.
Mingus opened the discharge line
| valve allowing the 100 octane fuel to
|flow through the pipe line to the
|hydrants at the field. Scheduled to
ive at about that time were two
KLM airliners who were the first
to use the new system.

Replacing the large tank-trucks
that formerly hauled the gas out to



|| the planes were two small hose carts

drawn by a small tractor. These were
| driven to the hydrant located in front
of the administration building and
|the hoses connected so that in a
| matter of minutes the system was
ready for refueling operations.

| At 3.30 pm the first of the big
|ships arrived and while the visitors
watched from the ramp, hundreds of
gallons of gasoline were pumped into
its tanks directly from the storage
tanks located at the field. A few
minutes later, the second ship arrived
| and its thirsty tanks were also given
| their fill of the 100 octane fuel that
| is the only diet the plane’s engines
will digest.

After the refueling operations, the
visitors and guests were invited into
the airport dining room for light re-
freshments. A flow chart of the
system had been set up in the dining
!room so that guests could examine it
}and ask questions.

Many of the guests were Esso of-
ficials with offices in New York and

It’s Getting Wetter Later

There’s nothing you can do about it so don’t let it cause you any
undue concern, but if you have had the feeling that the Aruban wet
season is gradually getting later in the year and moving into the new
year — you're right.

Ever since 1929, when rainfall observations at Lago were first taken,
November has been the wet month. Rainfall increased in October, hit
its peak in November, fell off in December, and returned to normal
in January. Tain’t so now. The rainfall increase still begins in October,
but is running below average; continues to get heavier in November,
but no longer hits its peak in the 11th month. Instead, December is
the rainy month. January’s fall is running way ahead of its average
and February is now the month for tapering off to normal. In short, |
the rainy period is falling back one month. |

The trend definitely seems to have started in 1949. That was the
year November fell way off its average and both December and
January went far out in front with December newly crowned as the
wettest month. The two years that followed held true to the trend.
All months went way above average in 1950, the wettest year on|
record, Still, however, it was December that showed the greatest rain-
fall and not November. Returning to normal last year — a total of |
22.69, just 4.60 above the 22-year average of 18.09 as compared to}
the abnormal 1950 total fall of 44.16 — October and November |
slipped below their respective averages while December and January |
maintained their above-average fall.

Last year, November fell off its average pace to the extent of 1.56
inches. Conversely, December and January bested their averages by
30 and 2.12 inches, respectively. And, if the recent falls we have been
experiencing indicate anything, the scheme of things seems to be
getting wetter later. There’s one consolation, however. We are in a
position much like that of Mark Twain when he referred to New|
England weather with the quip: "If you don’t like the weather, wait a
minute.”’ If you don’t like the rain, wait a minute — it will stop. |

1951 is given below through the facilities of the TSD Laboratories. The |

|Dr. T. C. Fowlkes In Residency Here} Under
‘Industrial Medicine Program

Lago’s Medical Department is one of the pioneers in a new type of
| training program for doctors interested in Industrial Medicine. In co-
operation with Standard Oil (NJ) and other American industrial con-
| cerns, Lago is participating in an 18-months program by offering
qualified physicians residency in its approved and accredited plant
dispensary. There, they will receive broad specialized training in In-
dustrial Medicine. Doctors selected for the program will spend six
months in the office of the General
Medical Director in New York and
12 months here in Aruba.

First doctor to be chosen for Lago’s
portion of the program is Dr. T. C.
Fowlkes, 32, of Selma, Alabama
Doctor Fowlkes, an experienced phy-
|sician, already yme background
in Industrial Medicine. After his
graduation from the University of
| Virginia’s medical school, Dr. Fowl-
kes served his internship at the Vir-
ginia Mason Hospital in Seattle,
Washington. Entering the army in
1944, he ved as a medicz i
in the European Theatre of Operat-
ions for two years.

Following his discharge from the
service in 1947, Dr. Fowlkes was
physician for the Roden Coal Com-
pany, Marvel, Alabama, until 1951
when he was called back into the ser-
vice for 9 months active duty. After
‘that, Dr. Fowlkes became one of the
early participants in the new train-
ing program designed to develop
additional specialists Industrial
Medicine.

Present plans for the training pro-
|gram call for the residency of two
doctors at all times, for the remain-
der of the program. One doctor will

» from January to December,
while the other will serve from July
to the following June.

In this we Dr.
head of Lago’s Medical Department,
and other Lago officials hope to
contribute to the progress of Indust-
rial Medicine — one of the newest
specialties to be recognized by the
medical profession.

Your Badge Is Important;

Your badge is vitally important to you. It is your permit to gain
entrance into the refinery. You need it to be identified for payroll
purposes. Your badge is your key to Lago and, therefore, must be
worn in plain view in the designated area at all times. Thousands of
people go in and out Lago’s gates every day. The only way they can
be identified is through their badges. If the badge is worn on the left
side of the chest as prescribed, it facilitates checking in the refinery

underway within the next few weeks
and erection of the new equipment
will start in the fall. It is hoped the
work will be completed in the late
fall of 1953. The enlarged refinery

Educational Plan
(Continued from page 1)

employees who desire to enroll in
approved educational institutions for
courses which will better fit them for
their work. This point is particularly
important — the educational institut-
ion must be approved by the Com-
pany, and the Company must also
agree that the course the employee
wants to take will better fit him for
his wo In a number of recent in-
stances, employees have enrolled and
begun their studies before applying
for assistance under the Plan. Under
the terms of the Plan, an employee
who does this not eligible to be
reimbursed.

In order to establish eligibility for
educational refund, the following
rules and conditions must be ob-
served: (a) Before beginning a course
of study, the specific course must be
approved by the employe depart-
ment andthe Industrial Relations De-
partment; (b) the course must be
related to the employee’s present job
assignment or to a job to which he
I definite assurance of being trans-
ferred or promoted; and, (c) the
employee must have one year of sa-
| tisfactory service.
| Once the course has been approved
|and the emplo completes the ne-

ary units of study, application

1y be made for refund upon sub-
mission of certification of fees paid
and grades obtained. This informat-
ion must be turned in to the Training
Division. No refund will be made on
any course on which a passing grade
or better not received. The total
refund to any employee shall not ex-
ceed two-thirds of the tuition and
registration fees shall not exceed
$150 for a 12-month period.

It is extremely important that any
employee who is interested in taking
a correspondence course should fir:
contact his immediate supervisor.
Should the employee receive tentative
approval from his supervisor, he may
then obtain an application blank from
the Training Division to secure the
necessary approvals from his depart-
ment and also from the Industrial
Relations Department.

M & C Administration Heads Named



As of January 1, Woodworth Mills is
the new group head of office services
of M & C Administration. Mills was
elevated from the position of section
head of office services, a post he held |
from November 1, 1950. The new
group head began his employ with
Lago on October 30, 1944, as a sten-
ographer in the Instrument Depart-
ment. A year later, he moved up to
itermediate clerk 2. He held this po-
sition until his transfer in October,
1948, to M & C Administration.

Driving Habits in
Are Revealed by

Of the 60 million licensed motor
vehicle operators in the United
States, the 15 million women drivers
have been found to be less skillful
but more careful than men drivers. |
Driver aptitude tests indicate that
the women maneuver on the high-
ways with le skill than men, but
accident records show that they
drive with more care.

A general study of the
habits of American drivers reveals
many other interesting facts about
the part played by automobiles in the







tastes and











daily lives of Americans. For exam-
ple, out of every 100 famili 73
have one car, and eight have two or
more. Motor spend and average






of 500 hours a year behind the wheel
— or almost 3 solid weeks of driving.
Half of the nation’s workers go to
their jobs in privately-owned cars,
and most of the things they produce
go at le part of the w in the
country’s eight million trucks. Some
thing: like vegetables and milk,
generally go all the way by road,
and of all the pigs marketed nine
out of ten go to market in trucks.
Preference for sportier cars is no
the rise, as the study shows there
are twice as many convertibles on
the ro. now as there were before
the war and four times as many |















Additional Income
Report Suggested |
By Payroll Dept.

In order to make it easier for
employees to comply with the N.W.I.
Law calling for all incomes to
be combined and income taxes paid
accordingly, the Accounting Depart-
ment is suggesting that all "outside
income” be reported. This report will
give the Accounting Department
complete information for monthly tax
deductions.

In requ





ting this information, it
is the desire of the Accounting Dep-
artment to assist the employee in
spreading out tax payments. This
will eliminate a large and inconven-
ient deduction when the final tax
bills are received from the Govern-
ment. It very frequently happens
that in addition to Lago income, |
employees have incomes from other
sources such as rental value of pro-
perty owned, wife’s employment,
spare time work, and the like. This
income is reported to the Govern-
ment Tax Office by the employee
with the result that when the final
income tax bill is received by the
CHOIRS Department, the amount |
to be paid to the Tax Office is con-
siderably higher than the amount re-
gularly deducted from the employee’s |
salary. Once the employee reports an |

to want to be entertained while they
drive, as more than 15 million of}
them have radios in their cars.

Half of the motorists today pur-
chased their cars used. Seventy out
of every 100 drivers bought their cars
within the past two years, but two
out of every 100 have owned their
present autos 14 years or more. One-
third of a million vehicles on the
road at present are surplus military
equipment — jeeps, trucks and pas-
senger cars sold for civilian use

At present, as soon after the close
of the tax year as it is possible,
final calculation is made to ceeeing

amount collected throughout the year |

due.

At this time, in-so-far as income

TEN YEARS AGO-

Ten years ago, one of the most
familiar sights on Aru highways
was the marching of British soldiers
led by the bagpipes. On another oc-
casion, the British soldiers staged a
musical review at the Esso Club
much to the delight of all Lagoites.

Just about this time 10 years, the
Marine Office building construction
was started; the theme of an edito-
rial in the Aruba Esso News was
"Drops of Oil or Battleships” point-
ing out that ultimate success in the
war was dependent upon everyone
adding his small part to the total
effort; and just about all car owners
were polishing up the old jaloppy and
caring for it just a little more than
usual reason: Detriot’s auto
factories came to a halt, never to
move again for the duration.

One of the largest and most im-

new uni hydraulic testing
machine. Push or pull, this machine
can give you the comp ve or

200,000 pounds. And the men of EIG
aren’t too particular what it is you
want tested they can handle it. If
it is compressive, the matter is rel- |
atively simple as the object is com-
pressed between a flat stationary
base and a moving hydraulic piston.
If it is to be pulled (such as chains, |
cables, pieces of steel, and the like) |
the hydraulic piston will pull it.|
Special grips are provided that will
hold the object being tested firm
while it is being pulled apart.

How to Bleach

Bleaching the family laundry with
a chlorine bleach has long been a
routine way to get rid of stains and
keep cottons and linens white. But |
new developments in detergents re-
quire new bleaching methods.

Today, most soaps and detergents
contain a special ingredient, techni- |
cally known as flourescent dye. This
dye helps the soap or detergent give
your wash a dazzling snow-white |
jlook. It even makes colors look |
brighter and clearer. But here’s the
hitch. If you add a chlorine bleach
to the soapsuds or detergent suds,
the special dyes cannot perform so
magically.

However, you can still use a bleach,
with all its whitening virtues, J
|bleach either before or after the
washing process. The all-important
factor is keeping the bleach out of |
the suds.

For articles that need family re- |
gular bleaching dish towels,
| grimy hand towels, facecloths, food-
stained tablecloths and napkins, etc.

users of nonautomatic washers
| will find the laundry tub an excellent
place to bleach. The clothes should
jas t be washed, then placed in a
| carefully measured bleach solution in
|the tub. A good proportion is one
tablespoonful to a gallon of warm
|water. Follow the label directions
| for soaking time and rinsing after- |

testing of concrete going into the
new hospital addition. The tests are |
run on 12-inch tall cylinders, six |
inches in diameter. The piston, which
has a total stroke of six inches,
moves down on the cylinder with a
steady pressure increase of 35 pounds |
per square inch per second. Suitable |
specimens average about 3000)
pounds per square inch. Overall, most |
hospital concrete cylinders break |
somewhere between 90,000 and}
130,000 pounds. All this is registered
on two dials minutely measuring
every degree of pressure applied. Al-
though both dials work simultane-
ously, one dial is graduated in smal-
ler units. This dial will indicate
pressure up to 50,000 pounds. At |
that point, a cut-out valve cuts off |
the gauge and the pressure is re-
gistered on the second dial on up to
200,000 pounds. |

This testing machine will pull steel
at one-tenth of an inch a minute,
bend metal in such instances as weld
qualifications, and, in general, handle
just about any piece of material that
the tensile or transverse strength is
desired. The machine is adaptable to
various types of work on different
shaped objects through interchange-
able Vee grips. Going still further,
if you’ve ever wondered how much
elasticity there is in a piece of steel,
the universal testing machine plus a
tiny intricate gauge will supply the
answer. The gauge is fixed on that
part of the steel to be stretched and
will register the desired information
at the breaking point. The new test-
ing machine replaces an old and not
too accurate tire press located in the
Machine Shop.

For the purpose of grinding and
polishing equipment for the prepar-
ation of specimens for metallurgical
examination, new equipment has been
added to this department. Previously,



steel-tipped ball penetrator (one-six-
teenth of an inch in diameter) for
brass, bronze, and like metals, and a
commercial diamond tip for hardened
steels, the machine measures the
hardness through the depth of the
penetration.

The grit-blasting machine is used
to thoroughly clean all pieces before
inspection or testing.

These are only a few of the many
instruments that are at the disposal
of EIG to check materials either in
use or those which warrant consider-
ation for use in the refinery. It al
adds up to safety and serviceability
for the refinery and Lago employees
through checking and re-checking on
modern equipment by skilled men at
EIG.

| If you use an automatic washer |
and segregate pieces to be bleached,
you can either bleach in the laundry |
tub, as above, or add the bleach to}

| the soak” period, before the clothes |
are washed. Use either half a cupfull
of bleach or the amount recommend- |

{ed by the washer instruction booklet. |
But don’t pour it into the washer
until it has been diluted in a quart of
warm water. After the clothes soak |
for ten or fifteen minutes in the
bleach, let the washer go through its |
usual washing-and-rinsing cycle.

The Emperor's Clothing

Many

of

|clothes that he spent all his money
}upon dress and finery.

He cared not
a straw for his soldiers, nor for go-
ing to the theater or driving in the
park; all he really cared about was
showing his new clothes.
Many strangers visited his pleas-
every day, and one day two
s rived who said they were
weavers, and pretended they knew
how to weave the
cloth. Not only were the colors and
patterns unusually fine, they said,
but the cloth was so delicate that
nobody who was either unfit for hi
office or stupid could see them.
"They would indeed by valuable
clothes,” thought the Emperor. y
wearing them, I could find out which
of my ministers are unfit for their
positions, and I could tell the wise
from the stupid. Yes, some of that
cloth must be woven for me at once.”
And he gave the two rogues a lot of
money in advance so that they might
begin their work.
So they set up two looms and pre-
tended they were working, but there

| was really nothing at all upon the
looms. Very soon they asked for the |

finest silk and the purest gold
thread, which they put carefully
away, and worked on with the empty
looms till late into the night.

"I should like to know how the
clothes are getting on,” thought the
Emperor; but really and truly he felt
a little uneasy when he remembered
that the stupid and the unfit would
not be able to see the cloth. He
fancied, indeed, that he had no need
to be anxious on his own account,
but he thought it would be safer to
send someone 2 first to see how
things went. ry person through-
out the city had heard of the won-
derful new cloth, and all were eage
to see how foolish or stupid thei
neighbors y 2.

The emperor sent his able old mi-
nister into the room where the two
rogues sat working at the empty
looms. "Mercy on us!” thought he,
and opened his eyes very wide. "I
can’t see anything.”’ But he took very
good care not to say so.

The two rogues begged him _ to
draw nearer, and asked him if the
pattern v not a pretty one, and the
colors very beautiful. Then they
pointed at the empty looms, and the
poor old minister opened his eye
wider and wider, but he could see
nothing, for there was nothing to
see. Good gracious!” thought he, "I
am not stupid, surely? I never
thought so before, and I’ll take good

r
r

care that nobody shall know it now. |

What! I am not fit for my office,
eh? Oh, no, it will never do to go
Aa

"Well, have you nothing to
about it?” asked one of the weavers.

”Oh, it is beautiful! the most love-
ly thing in the world!” said the old
minister, and he took out his spect-
ac
ed with it too,”
; and now they
named the colors and described the
pattern. The old minister listened
carefully to all they said, so as to be
able to repeat the same things to the
Emperor, which he did.

And now the rogues asked for more
money, more silk, and more gold;
they needed the gold for the weaving,
they said. They stuck everything in
their own pockets; not so much as a
thread passed over the looms; but
they kept on as before weaving upon
the empty looms.

Soon all the people in the town
were talking of the splendid cloth.

And now the Emperor had a mind
to see the cloth himself while it was
still on the loom. With a host of the
great folk of his realm, among whom
were the two able officers who had
been there before, he went to the
two crafty rogues who were now
working with all their might, but
without a stitch or thread

"Now, is it not magnificent?” said
the two officers. Will your Majesty
notice what patterns, what colors are
here?” and they pointed at the empty
looms.

| "Why, what is this?” thought the
Emperor. "I don’t see anything! How
| horrible! Am I stupid then? Am I

be the most frightful thing that could
happen to me! Oh, it is very fine!”
said he aloud. "It has my most grac-

whole suite stared and stared; they
could make no more of it than the
rest, but they repeated after the
Emperor, "Oh, it is very fine!” and
advised him to wear the clothes made
of this new and gorgeous cloth for
|the first time at the grand proces-
| sion which was about to take place.
On the eve of the procession the
rogues sat up all night, and had more
than een candles lit. The people
could see that they were busy getting
ready the Emperor’s new clothes.
They pretended to take the cloth
from the loom, they clipped the air
with large scissors, and sewed with
needles without thread, and at last
red, There, the clothes are now

came himself, and the
rogues raised their arms as if they
were holding up something, and said,
"Look, here are the hose, and here
is the coat, and here the mantle. They
are as light as gossamer,” they con-
tinued, "you would faney you had
|nothing on at all, but that is just
| the beauty of the cloth.”

| "And now, if your Imperial Ma-
jesty will most graciously have your
clothes taken off,” said the rogues,
”*we will put on the new ones for
your Majesty. In front of the large
mirror, p ! Thank you!”

So the Emperor’s clothes were
taken off, and the rogues pretended
to give him the newly-made
| piece by piece, and they smoothed
|down his body, and tied something
|fast which was supposed to be the

1in, and the Emperor turned and
twisted himself in front of the
mirror.

"What a capital suit it is! How

| ”The canopy which is to be borne

clothes are! What a beautiful train!
| How splendidly everything fits!” No

saw nothing, for then he would
certainly have been unfit for his

Empero clothes had been so suc-

"He lly has nothing on!”
length cried the whole crowd.

The Emperor crouched down as he
heard, for it seemed to him that they
were right, but he thought at the

ame time, "At any rate I must go
through with this procession to the
end.” So he put on a still haughtier

and February is now the month for tapering off to normal In short
the rainy period is falling back one month
The trend definitely seems to have started in 1949 That was the

New Pedestrian

Gate Opened

pedestrian gate, located
north of the Acid Plant and across
the street from the San Nicholas
Postoffice, was officially opened to-
day. The opening of the gate was
decided upon by Management in or-
der that employees working in the
western end of the refinery would
not be required to tra all the way
|to Gate No. 1 and then double back
|through San Nicholas.

With the opening of the entrance,
a new parking lot near the gate was
also put into service. The gate, solely
for pedestrian traffic, will be used by
employees only and will be open dur-
ing normal changes of working hours
and at noon tin

In order to further assist Lago
employees working in the western
end of the r ry, foremen of that
area are canv ing their men to
find out what time cards need be
placed at the new gate.

The idea of a gate in that part
of the refinery was first brought to |
attention at an August (1950) mee
ing of the Special Problems Advisory
| Committee.

Second Annual |
Stag Barbecue |
Well Received

Unity and fellowship reigned sup-
reme last Saturday night as regular
employee representatives and mem-
bers of staff enjoyed the festivities
of the second annual stag barbecue.
The Aruba Golf Club provided the
setting for the affair.

The aspect of unity was stressed
by the principal speakers which in-
cluded O. S. Mingus, general mana-
ger; Juste de Vries, chairman of
SPAC; B. K. Chand, vice-president
of LEC, and Frank Griffin, general
superintendent. In particular, Mr. de |
Vries spoke on the unity aspect stat- |
ing that no time is spent better |
than being brethren in unity.”

He told the group that ”money
alone cannot improve employee relat-
ions.”” He commended the barbecue,
its purpose, and the fellowship of the
evening, but stressed that fellowship
and unity "depend solely on how
everyone treats his fellow employee.”
He reminded the gathering that the
island’s economy depends upon Lago
and concluded by expressing his |
tanks to Management for the even- |
ing.

Following his introduction by Hen- |
ry Chippendale, Mr. Mingus stressed |
the interchange of ideas. He stated
that with the representation system, |
id are interchanged resulting in|
better understanding and happiness. !
Mr. Griffin informed the gathering
that the operative outlook is opto-
mistic. "Last year was a successful
y ” he said, "and we all learned a
lot.” He further stated that the
and committees can take
pride in the things they have ac-
complished. He expressed confidence |
in the representative groups and the |
men they represent. ”Our future, |
your future, and the future of Aruba |
depends upon you and all employees,”















he concluded.

B. K. Chand, vice-president of
LEC commented on the increasing
effectiveness of the plan.

tertainment program was J. W. Ar-
rias. On the program were Benny

It’s Getting Wetter Later

There’s nothing you can do about it so don’t let it cause you any
undue concern, but if you have had the feeling that the Aruban wet
season is gradually getting later in the year and moving into the new
year — you're right.

Ever since 1929, when rainfall observations at Lago were first taken,
November has been the wet month. Rainfall increased in October, hit
its peak in November, fell off in December, and returned to normal
in January. Tain’t so now. The rainfall increase still begins in October,
but is running below average; continues to get heavier in November,
but no longer hits its peak in the 11th month. Instead, December is
the rainy month. January’s fall is running way ahead of its average
and February is now the month for tapering off to normal. In short, |
the rainy period is falling back one month. |

The trend definitely seems to have started in 1949. That was the
year November fell way off its average and both December and
January went far out in front with December newly crowned as the
wettest month. The two years that followed held true to the trend.
All months went way above average in 1950, the wettest year on|
record, Still, however, it was December that showed the greatest rain-
fall and not November. Returning to normal last year — a total of |
22.69, just 4.60 above the 22-year average of 18.09 as compared to}
the abnormal 1950 total fall of 44.16 — October and November |
slipped below their respective averages while December and January |
maintained their above-average fall.

Last year, November fell off its average pace to the extent of 1.56
inches. Conversely, December and January bested their averages by
30 and 2.12 inches, respectively. And, if the recent falls we have been
experiencing indicate anything, the scheme of things seems to be
getting wetter later. There’s one consolation, however. We are in a
position much like that of Mark Twain when he referred to New|
England weather with the quip: "If you don’t like the weather, wait a
minute.”’ If you don’t like the rain, wait a minute — it will stop. |

|Dr. T. C. Fowlkes In Residency Here} Under
‘Industrial Medicine Program

Lago’s Medical Department is one of the pioneers in a new type of
| training program for doctors interested in Industrial Medicine. In co-
operation with Standard Oil (NJ) and other American industrial con-
| cerns, Lago is participating in an 18-months program by offering
qualified physicians residency in its approved and accredited plant
dispensary. There, they will receive broad specialized training in In-
dustrial Medicine. Doctors selected for the program will spend six
months in the office of the General
Medical Director in New York and
12 months here in Aruba.

First doctor to be chosen for Lago’s
portion of the program is Dr. T. C.
Fowlkes, 32, of Selma, Alabama
Doctor Fowlkes, an experienced phy-
|sician, already yme background
in Industrial Medicine. After his
graduation from the University of
| Virginia’s medical school, Dr. Fowl-
kes served his internship at the Vir-
ginia Mason Hospital in Seattle,
Washington. Entering the army in
1944, he ved as a medicz i
in the European Theatre of Operat-
ions for two years.

Following his discharge from the
service in 1947, Dr. Fowlkes was
physician for the Roden Coal Com-
pany, Marvel, Alabama, until 1951
when he was called back into the ser-
vice for 9 months active duty. After
‘that, Dr. Fowlkes became one of the
early participants in the new train-
ing program designed to develop
additional specialists Industrial

Present plans for the training pro-
|gram call for the residency of two
doctors at all times, for the remain-
der of the program. One doctor will

specialties to be recognized by the
medical profession.

people go in and out Lago’s gates every day. The only way they can
be identified is through their badges. If the badge is worn on the left

Of the 60 million licensed motor

Additional Income
Report Suggested |
By Payroll Dept.

In order to make it easier for
employees to comply with the N.W.I.
Law calling for all incomes to
be combined and income taxes paid
accordingly, the Accounting Depart-
ment is suggesting that all "outside
income” be reported. This report will
give the Accounting Department
complete information for monthly tax
deductions.

In requ





ting this information, it
is the desire of the Accounting Dep-
artment to assist the employee in
spreading out tax payments. This
will eliminate a large and inconven-
ient deduction when the final tax
bills are received from the Govern-
ment. It very frequently happens
that in addition to Lago income, |
employees have incomes from other
sources such as rental value of pro-
perty owned, wife’s employment,
spare time work, and the like. This
income is reported to the Govern-
ment Tax Office by the employee
with the result that when the final
income tax bill is received by the
CHOIRS Department, the amount |
to be paid to the Tax Office is con-
siderably higher than the amount re-
gularly deducted from the employee’s |
salary. Once the employee reports an |















this amount will be added to the

Half of the motorists today pur-

within the past two years, but two
out of every 100 have owned their

TEN YEARS AGO-

Ten years ago, one of the most
familiar sights on Aru highways
was the marching of British soldiers
led by the bagpipes. On another oc-
casion, the British soldiers staged a
musical review at the Esso Club
much to the delight of all Lagoites.

Just about this time 10 years, the
Marine Office building construction
was started; the theme of an edito-
rial in the Aruba Esso News was
"Drops of Oil or Battleships” point-
ing out that ultimate success in the
war was dependent upon everyone
adding his small part to the total
effort; and just about all car owners
were polishing up the old jaloppy and
caring for it just a little more than
usual reason: Detriot’s auto
factories came to a halt, never to
move again for the duration.

One of the largest and most im-

new uni hydraulic testing
machine. Push or pull, this machine
can give you the comp ve or
tensile answer all the way up to
200,000 pounds. And the men of EIG
aren’t too particular what it is you
want tested they can handle it. If
it is compressive, the matter is rel- |
atively simple as the object is com-
pressed between a flat stationary
base and a moving hydraulic piston.
If it is to be pulled (such as chains, |
cables, pieces of steel, and the like) |
the hydraulic piston will pull it.|
Special grips are provided that will
hold the object being tested firm
while it is being pulled apart.

Home Hints
How to Bleach

Bleaching the family laundry with
a chlorine bleach has long been a
routine way to get rid of stains and
keep cottons and linens white. But |
new developments in detergents re-
quire new bleaching methods.

Today, most soaps and detergents
contain a special ingredient, techni- |
cally known as flourescent dye. This
dye helps the soap or detergent give
your wash a dazzling snow-white |
jlook. It even makes colors look |
brighter and clearer. But here’s the
hitch. If you add a chlorine bleach
to the soapsuds or detergent suds,
the special dyes cannot perform so
magically.

However, you can still use a bleach,
with all its whitening virtues, J
|bleach either before or after the
washing process. The all-important
factor is keeping the bleach out of |
the suds.

For articles that need family re- |
gular bleaching dish towels,
| grimy hand towels, facecloths, food-
stained tablecloths and napkins, etc.

users of nonautomatic washers
| will find the laundry tub an excellent
place to bleach. The clothes should
jas t be washed, then placed in a
| carefully measured bleach solution in
|the tub. A good proportion is one
tablespoonful to a gallon of warm
|water. Follow the label directions
| for soaking time and rinsing after- |

testing of concrete going into the
new hospital addition. The tests are |
run on 12-inch tall cylinders, six |
inches in diameter. The piston, which
has a total stroke of six inches,
moves down on the cylinder with a
steady pressure increase of 35 pounds |
per square inch per second. Suitable |
specimens average about 3000)
pounds per square inch. Overall, most |
hospital concrete cylinders break |
somewhere between 90,000 and}
130,000 pounds. All this is registered
on two dials minutely measuring
every degree of pressure applied. Al-
though both dials work simultane-
ously, one dial is graduated in smal-
ler units. This dial will indicate
pressure up to 50,000 pounds. At |
that point, a cut-out valve cuts off |
the gauge and the pressure is re-
gistered on the second dial on up to
200,000 pounds. |

This testing machine will pull steel
at one-tenth of an inch a minute,
bend metal in such instances as weld
qualifications, and, in general, handle
just about any piece of material that
the tensile or transverse strength is
desired. The machine is adaptable to
various types of work on different
shaped objects through interchange-
able Vee grips. Going still further,
if you’ve ever wondered how much
elasticity there is in a piece of steel,
the universal testing machine plus a
tiny intricate gauge will supply the
answer. The gauge is fixed on that
part of the steel to be stretched and
will register the desired information
at the breaking point. The new test-
ing machine replaces an old and not
too accurate tire press located in the
Machine Shop.

For the purpose of grinding and
polishing equipment for the prepar-
ation of specimens for metallurgical
examination, new equipment has been
added to this department. Previously,



steel-tipped ball penetrator (one-six-
teenth of an inch in diameter) for
brass, bronze, and like metals, and a
commercial diamond tip for hardened
steels, the machine measures the
hardness through the depth of the
penetration.

The grit-blasting machine is used
to thoroughly clean all pieces before
inspection or testing.

These are only a few of the many
instruments that are at the disposal
of EIG to check materials either in
use or those which warrant consider-
ation for use in the refinery. It al
adds up to safety and serviceability
for the refinery and Lago employees
through checking and re-checking on
modern equipment by skilled men at
EIG.

|clothes that he spent all his money
}upon dress and finery.

He cared not
a straw for his soldiers, nor for go-
ing to the theater or driving in the
park; all he really cared about was
showing his new clothes.
Many strangers visited his pleas-
every day, and one day two
s rived who said they were
weavers, and pretended they knew
how to weave the
cloth. Not only were the colors and
patterns unusually fine, they said,
but the cloth was so delicate that
nobody who was either unfit for hi
office or stupid could see them.
"They would indeed by valuable
clothes,” thought the Emperor. y
wearing them, I could find out which
of my ministers are unfit for their
positions, and I could tell the wise
from the stupid. Yes, some of that
cloth must be woven for me at once.”
And he gave the two rogues a lot of
money in advance so that they might
begin their work.
So they set up two looms and pre-
tended they were working, but there

| was really nothing at all upon the
looms. Very soon they asked for the |

finest silk and the purest gold
thread, which they put carefully
away, and worked on with the empty
looms till late into the night.

"I should like to know how the
clothes are getting on,” thought the
Emperor; but really and truly he felt
a little uneasy when he remembered
that the stupid and the unfit would
not be able to see the cloth. He
fancied, indeed, that he had no need
to be anxious on his own account,
but he thought it would be safer to
send someone 2 first to see how
things went. ry person through-
out the city had heard of the won-
derful new cloth, and all were eage
to see how foolish or stupid thei
neighbors y 2.

The emperor sent his able old mi-
nister into the room where the two
rogues sat working at the empty
looms. "Mercy on us!” thought he,
and opened his eyes very wide. "I
can’t see anything.”’ But he took very
good care not to say so.

The two rogues begged him _ to
draw nearer, and asked him if the
pattern v not a pretty one, and the
colors very beautiful. Then they
pointed at the empty looms, and the
poor old minister opened his eye
wider and wider, but he could see
nothing, for there was nothing to
see. Good gracious!” thought he, "I
am not stupid, surely? I never
thought so before, and I’ll take good

r
r

care that nobody shall know it now. |

What! I am not fit for my office,
eh? Oh, no, it will never do to go
Aa

"Well, have you nothing to
about it?” asked one of the weavers.

”Oh, it is beautiful! the most love-
ly thing in the world!” said the old
minister, and he took out his spect-
ac
ed with it too,”
; and now they
named the colors and described the
pattern. The old minister listened
carefully to all they said, so as to be
able to repeat the same things to the
Emperor, which he did.

And now the rogues asked for more
money, more silk, and more gold;
they needed the gold for the weaving,
they said. They stuck everything in
their own pockets; not so much as a
thread passed over the looms; but
they kept on as before weaving upon
the empty looms.

Soon all the people in the town
were talking of the splendid cloth.

And now the Emperor had a mind
to see the cloth himself while it was
still on the loom. With a host of the
great folk of his realm, among whom
were the two able officers who had
been there before, he went to the
two crafty rogues who were now
working with all their might, but
without a stitch or thread

"Now, is it not magnificent?” said
the two officers. Will your Majesty
notice what patterns, what colors are
here?” and they pointed at the empty
looms.

Emperor, "Oh, it is very fine!” and
advised him to wear the clothes made
of this new and gorgeous cloth for
|the first time at the grand proces-
| sion which was about to take place.
On the eve of the procession the
rogues sat up all night, and had more
than een candles lit. The people
could see that they were busy getting
ready the Emperor’s new clothes.
They pretended to take the cloth
from the loom, they clipped the air

needles without thread, and at last

rogues raised their arms as if they

| "And now, if your Imperial Ma-

clothes taken off,” said the rogues,
”*we will put on the new ones for
