Danger In Shortcuts

In rainy weather (or when hur-
rying to or from work) many
employees take a shortcut through
the main shops. Men assigned to
the shops know how to work safi
ly there, but it can be a h
area for those who have no bu-
siness in it or are hurrying
through. Regular walkways are
safe. Shortcuts can be danger-
worth it.

jaward of Fls. 600. Newgreen sug-
gested that the Plant Dispensary’s
patient folders be identified as to
the return dates. Since his suggestion
was put into effect in January, 1950,
the Dispensary f has had an easy
means of quickly identifying those
cases which are to be seen in the
Quonset Hut Section, instead of hav-
ing them wait until the last clinic
entry read by the receptionist. The
suggestion saved the patients’ time
and has tended to improve morale by
reducing waiting time at the Dis-
pensary. Newgreen left the employ

J. H. deFreitas, stant operator
in the Catalytic and Light Ends
Department, won Fls. 400 as third
place Capital Awards winner for his
suggestion of a method for recover-
ing fresh water used by the PCAR.
His idea called for the installation
of facilities to recover 1000 gallons
per day of fresh water used to seal
the vacuum relief valves on the
PCAR air blower turbine exhaust
lines.

Upon investigation, it was found
that the quantity of water used was
specified when the unit first went
into operation and was far in excess
of that required. Orders were issued
which reduced the water used to a
negligible minimum.

: Friends When You Need Them

Tragedy broke Colorado Point's afternoon serenity on February 2. |
One of man’s most feared forms of destruction fire — crackled its
way through Apartment 6-A. When its last flame had inflicted the
final bit of black destruction, it left what had been a home a mass of |
ugly rubble. Fire’s aftermath is heartbreak, In the recent Colorado
Point fire, fortunately no one was injured, but the roaring flames left
the family little in a gutted and hardly distinguishable apartment.
However, what little was saved and what went on in the adjoining |
apartments while the flames still threathened is a tribute to the people |
with whom we work and live. It’s a comforting story of friends when |
we need them. |

In what seemed a matter of minutes after the fire was discovered, |
neighbors from all over swarmed through the adjoining apartments re- |
moving personal property. A the last possible moment that entrance
could be gained in Apartment 6-A, some belongings were saved. Help- |
ful, friendly hands lost little time in removing personal belongings and |
furniture from the other two apartments. Community spirit and bro-
therly assistance above possible personal injury was never more clearly
exemplified. The sincere fellowship continued from all avenues with
offers of lodging and clothing to those unfortunately caught in the de- |
struction. |

Indeed, we may not know them, or even know where they live, but
we have friends when we need them.

"There is no limit...

In winding up his 17-year connection with the Coin Your Ideas Plan |
last month before his retirement, R. V. Heinze came up with a
statistical fact that has long been buried in musty CYI records:

during the first year of operation the Plan paid
Fls. 330 in awards;

during 1951 the Plan paid Fis. 40,000 in awards; |

or an increase of Fls. 39,670 in benefit to employees for their ideas! | |

The figure justifies the unbounded faith Mr. Heinze has always
had in the value of suggestions to both Company and employees, and
his hopes for its future. A paragraph in his final report to manage-
ment tells the story:

"Although there has been much progress through the operation of |
the Coin Your Ideas Plan, the employees, as yet, haven’t begun to |
apply themselves and to prove to management just how much more
progress will occur in the coming years of its operation. There is no
limit to possible improvements and there is no limit to the amount
of money available to pay for those improvements.”

E cifranan ta hustifica e confianza firme cu Sr. Heinze tabatin
semper den valor di ideanan tanto pa Compania como pa empleadonan
y su speranza pa futuro di e Plan. Un paragrafo den su reportage final
na Directiva ta bisa:

"No obstante cu tabatin hopi progreso den operacion di Plan di

TEN YEARS AGO







The longest stretch of paving in
the Company’s road-surfacing pro-
gram was completed just about this
time 10 years ago. Paving equiva-
lent to more than seven road-miles
was laid. It marked the longest con-
tinuous stretch of 1941. The road
extended from Post 16, at the Lago
Heights Road, to the Hospital. The
paving consisted of crushed coral
rock and sand, visbreaker tar and

pitch,

Sportswise, the Lago
basketball team, a new group formed
in February, 1941, played its first
game and won. The Lago represen-
tatives defeated the powerful Caribe
Sports Club team 28 to 18. The new
rifle range opened this month 10
years ago and was immediately put
to extensive use. Rifle enthusiasts
were quickly availing themselves of
the new range and at the same time
preparing for inter-departmental
matches

Devil may only have been trying to
build up his own courage, but at
any rate he began to shout in hi
most Devilish way, "I am the Devil.





Everybody is afraid of the Devil!”

All of this terrified no one, 1
of all a sweet-looking little girl of
about five who seemed quite willing
to take the Devil by the horns as she
began to yell, "I’m not! I’m _ not
afraid of you!” This, of course,
wasn’t in the script, so no one can
blame the Devil for looking a little
sheepish. Eventually, although he
had recovered his poise when he fi-
nally came face to face with puppet
hero Jan Kla n, the Devil was no
match for his intended victim.

It all began at the regular month-
ly meeting of the Woman’s Club of

The adventure presented for

with some difficulty Jan was having
in paying the rent. As his landlord
was heartless, Jan had many of the
same feelings toward him that people
have toward their landlords when
the rent is due but unpaid. That is
where the Devil came in. By offering
his help to Jan, the Devil hoped to
win Jan’s soul. But, like the little
blond girl and many of her neigh-
bors in the audience, Jan wasn’t hay-
ing any of it

Jan got plenty of advice from the
voluble audience who — like a bunch

Local Baseball Teams
Defeat Curacao 2-1, 8-1

Aruba clearly outclassed Curacao on the baseball diamond February
2-3 with 2 to 1 and 8 to 1 victories registered by the Aruba All Stars
and the Lago All Stars, respectively. In defeating the all star aggre-
gation from the Curacao Baseball Association, the local teams came
from behind in the first game to win on a two-run seventh inning home
run by Tenchie Hoftijzer, and coasted to an easy victory in the second
game that almost turned into a rout.



In Saturday’s opener, Curacao was
treated to a first inning gift run.
Experiencing first inning wildness,
Nell Harms, Aruba’s pitcher, walked
the first three men he faced. With |
the bases loaded, Curacao scored its
first and only run on a fielder’s
choice. And so it remained until the
seventh inning. Leo Kuiperi opened |
the inning with a walk. Moments






came home on Hoftijzer’s four-base
blow over the center fielder’s head. |

Each team made four hits. Aruba’s |
hits came off the bats of Rene Apar-
icio, Roy Harms, Pedro Ruiz, and
Hoftijzer.

In the second game, Hoftijzer pro- |
vided the crowd with some pitching
and running excitement. On the
mound, Tenchie limited the visitors
to three bits, and on the base-paths
he stole home in the eighth. Lago |

opened with two runs in the first and i

was never headed. The local club fol- | FRIENDSHIP Ree Juan Pe-

Baseball Association secretary, fol-

|

racao’s lone run came in the eighth. |
Lago’s five hits were made by Ra-|
mon Hodge, Cletus Matthews, Juan |
Perez, Leoncio Sharpe, and Hoftijzer. |

Hoftijzer lost his shut-out through |
a touch of wildness on his part. With |
the bases loaded and two out in the |
eighth, he walked in the lone run.
He eliminated further pressure by
striking out the next batter.

A friendship trophy was presented
to Perez by Curacao’s Hector Rosario

following the second game. Perez |

San Nicholas Branch
Library To Open
In Near Future

A branch of the Oranjestad Library
will be opened in San Nicholas in the
near future, it was nnounced r
cently by Dr. Johan Hartog, librarian.
Plans for the branch library call for
a complete cataloging of all books in
the main library which may be drawn
through this index.

In making the announcement, Dr.
Hartog stated that the actual num-
ber of books that the new branch will
carry will be relatively small, but this |

in the Oranjestad Library. Forms will |
be available at the San Nicholas |
branch for readers to fill out indi-
cating the reading matter they desire
and it will be delivered to their home
within a day or two.

Danger In Shortcuts

In rainy weather (or when hur-
rying to or from work) many
employees take a shortcut through
the main shops. Men assigned to
the shops know how to work safi
ly there, but it can be a h
area for those who have no bu-
siness in it or are hurrying
through. Regular walkways are
safe. Shortcuts can be danger-
worth it.

means of quickly identifying those
cases which are to be seen in the
Quonset Hut Section, instead of hav-
ing them wait until the last clinic
entry read by the receptionist. The
suggestion saved the patients’ time
and has tended to improve morale by

J. H. deFreitas, stant operator

His idea called for the installation
of facilities to recover 1000 gallons
per day of fresh water used to seal
the vacuum relief valves on the
PCAR air blower turbine exhaust
lines.

Upon investigation, it was found
that the quantity of water used was
specified when the unit first went
into operation and was far in excess
of that required. Orders were issued
which reduced the water used to a
negligible minimum.

: Friends When You Need Them

Tragedy broke Colorado Point's afternoon serenity on February 2. |
One of man’s most feared forms of destruction fire — crackled its
way through Apartment 6-A. When its last flame had inflicted the
final bit of black destruction, it left what had been a home a mass of |
ugly rubble. Fire’s aftermath is heartbreak, In the recent Colorado
Point fire, fortunately no one was injured, but the roaring flames left
the family little in a gutted and hardly distinguishable apartment.
However, what little was saved and what went on in the adjoining |
apartments while the flames still threathened is a tribute to the people |
with whom we work and live. It’s a comforting story of friends when |
we need them. |

In what seemed a matter of minutes after the fire was discovered, |
neighbors from all over swarmed through the adjoining apartments re- |
moving personal property. A the last possible moment that entrance
could be gained in Apartment 6-A, some belongings were saved. Help- |
ful, friendly hands lost little time in removing personal belongings and |
furniture from the other two apartments. Community spirit and bro-
therly assistance above possible personal injury was never more clearly
exemplified. The sincere fellowship continued from all avenues with
offers of lodging and clothing to those unfortunately caught in the de- |
struction. |

Indeed, we may not know them, or even know where they live, but
we have friends when we need them.

"There is no limit...

In winding up his 17-year connection with the Coin Your Ideas Plan |
last month before his retirement, R. V. Heinze came up with a
statistical fact that has long been buried in musty CYI records:

during the first year of operation the Plan paid
Fls. 330 in awards;

during 1951 the Plan paid Fis. 40,000 in awards; |

or an increase of Fls. 39,670 in benefit to employees for their ideas! | |

The figure justifies the unbounded faith Mr. Heinze has always
had in the value of suggestions to both Company and employees, and
his hopes for its future. A paragraph in his final report to manage-
ment tells the story:

"Although there has been much progress through the operation of |
the Coin Your Ideas Plan, the employees, as yet, haven’t begun to |
apply themselves and to prove to management just how much more
progress will occur in the coming years of its operation. There is no
limit to possible improvements and there is no limit to the amount
of money available to pay for those improvements.”

TEN YEARS AGO







The longest stretch of paving in
the Company’s road-surfacing pro-
gram was completed just about this
time 10 years ago. Paving equiva-
lent to more than seven road-miles
was laid. It marked the longest con-
tinuous stretch of 1941. The road
extended from Post 16, at the Lago
Heights Road, to the Hospital. The
paving consisted of crushed coral
rock and sand, visbreaker tar and

pitch,

Sportswise, the Lago
basketball team, a new group formed
in February, 1941, played its first
game and won. The Lago represen-
tatives defeated the powerful Caribe
Sports Club team 28 to 18. The new
rifle range opened this month 10
years ago and was immediately put
to extensive use. Rifle enthusiasts
were quickly availing themselves of
the new range and at the same time
preparing for inter-departmental
matches

A Devilish Time for 1st and 2nd Graders





The Devil had a devil of a time at







the Esso Club February 5. When he
came to scare Jan Kl in and his
girl, Katrin, the Devil apparently
hadn’t reckoned with the 135 red-



hool kids



blooded 1st and 2nd grade












who were on hand to ba Jan up.
As he stomped across the stage of
the Poppen Puppet Theatr the
Devil may only have been trying to
build up his own courage, but at
any rate he began to shout in hi
most Devilish way, "I am the Devil.





Everybody is afraid of the Devil!”

All of this terrified no one, 1
of all a sweet-looking little girl of
about five who seemed quite willing
to take the Devil by the horns as she
began to yell, "I’m not! I’m _ not
afraid of you!” This, of course,
wasn’t in the script, so no one can
blame the Devil for looking a little
sheepish. Eventually, although he
had recovered his poise when he fi-
nally came face to face with puppet
hero Jan Kla n, the Devil was no
match for his intended victim.

It all began at the regular month-
ly meeting of the Woman’s Club of

t













Aru at which Mrs. P. Wurtz of
Oranjestad was invited to entertain
the children as gue: of the Club



with one of her well-known puppet

The adventure presented for
the Ist and 2nd graders at the
Woman’s Club meeting had to do

with some difficulty Jan was having
in paying the rent. As his landlord
was heartless, Jan had many of the
same feelings toward him that people
have toward their landlords when
the rent is due but unpaid. That is
where the Devil came in. By offering
his help to Jan, the Devil hoped to
win Jan’s soul. But, like the little
blond girl and many of her neigh-
bors in the audience, Jan wasn’t hay-
ing any of it

Jan got plenty of advice from the
voluble audience who — like a bunch
of Brooklyn Dodger fans during a
tight pennant race shouted a
stream of advice at the top of their

The long arm of the law, repre-
sented by the play’s policeman, final-

And the heartless landlord (who
tried unsuccessfully to have Jan

thrown in jail) was himself jailed by
the policeman who had been taken
in by Jan’s glib tongue. By that time,
however, Jan had paid the landlord
what he owed him.

An old crone with a large bag of
s tucked under her Mother Hub-
bard skirts, came out of no-where to
tell Jan where — without working —
he could get the money he needed
"just for being good.” It was at this
point that the story made its wildest
departure from reality.

Local Baseball Teams
Defeat Curacao 2-1, 8-1

Aruba clearly outclassed Curacao on the baseball diamond February
2-3 with 2 to 1 and 8 to 1 victories registered by the Aruba All Stars
and the Lago All Stars, respectively. In defeating the all star aggre-
gation from the Curacao Baseball Association, the local teams came
from behind in the first game to win on a two-run seventh inning home
run by Tenchie Hoftijzer, and coasted to an easy victory in the second
game that almost turned into a rout.



In Saturday’s opener, Curacao was
treated to a first inning gift run.
Experiencing first inning wildness,
Nell Harms, Aruba’s pitcher, walked
the first three men he faced. With |
the bases loaded, Curacao scored its
first and only run on a fielder’s
choice. And so it remained until the
seventh inning. Leo Kuiperi opened |
the inning with a walk. Moments






came home on Hoftijzer’s four-base
blow over the center fielder’s head. |

Each team made four hits. Aruba’s |
hits came off the bats of Rene Apar-
icio, Roy Harms, Pedro Ruiz, and
Hoftijzer.

In the second game, Hoftijzer pro- |
vided the crowd with some pitching
and running excitement. On the
mound, Tenchie limited the visitors
to three bits, and on the base-paths
he stole home in the eighth. Lago |

opened with two runs in the first and i

was never headed. The local club fol- | FRIENDSHIP Ree Juan Pe-

Baseball Association secretary, fol-

|

racao’s lone run came in the eighth. |
Lago’s five hits were made by Ra-|
mon Hodge, Cletus Matthews, Juan |
Perez, Leoncio Sharpe, and Hoftijzer. |

Hoftijzer lost his shut-out through |
a touch of wildness on his part. With |
the bases loaded and two out in the |
eighth, he walked in the lone run.
He eliminated further pressure by
striking out the next batter.

A friendship trophy was presented
to Perez by Curacao’s Hector Rosario

following the second game. Perez |
