The Lago Vocational School has reconvened following the Christmas
vacation for the students and an intensive institute for the instructors
under the direction of Dr. Theodore D. Rice and Dr. Chandos Reid.
During the period the two New York educators were here, they held
daily sessions with the instructors, observed the vocational students
at work in the refinery and in the classroom, visited the Aruba Tech-
nical School, and met with the faculty of the Lago Community School

Gromit LEC Election

It is of credit to the members of the Lago Employee Council — both
past and present — that they, through their efforts on behalf of
Lago’s employees, have established Council esteem in the ranks of
their constituents. The large number of Lago employees that took part |
in the LEC election is, in effect, a vote of confidence for the present |
representation system.

Over the period of Dec. 10, 11, and 12 — the three LEC election
days — 82.63 per cent of available employees cast valid ballots. In the |
National group, 3151 valid ballots were cast. The Non-Nationals cast |
1599 valid ballots for a total of 4750 valid ballots cast. The total valid
votes tabulated far exceeded the number cast during the 1951 LEC
election, showing increased interest by the constituents in the Lago |
Employee Council as a negotiating body.

There is significance behind the number of valid votes, It lies in why |
the thousands of Lago employees voted in increasing numbers as they |
have during the past year. The casting of a vote by an individual under
Lago’s representation system shows he is concerned with his job, his
family, and his Company. With the representation system here as wide-
spread as it is, all three are effected by men elected to the council and
committees by Lago employees. Full realization of this by the con- |
stituents is shown in the number of valid ballots cast during the LEC
and other elections. The constituents are actively interested in their
job security, their working conditions, their living conditions, their |
recreational conditions and are, in increasing numbers, taking part in |
elections to select the men they feel will best negotiate items involving
their interests.

Increased voting shows increased faith in the representative groups. |
Such faith ensures continued success of the representation system and |
relationship between employees and Management.

Tocante Eleccion di LEC

Ta un credito pa miembronan di Lago Employee Council — tanto |
esnan actual como di pasado — cu nan, door di nan esfuerzonan pa
empleadonan di Lago, a establece aprecio pa Council den rangonan di
nan constituyentenan. E cantidad grandi di empleadonan di Lago cu a
participa den eleccion di LEC, en realidad, ta un voto di confianza pa
e sistema actual di representacion.

Durante e periodo di Dec. 10, 11, y 12 — e tres dianan di eleccion |
pa LEC — 82.63 por ciento di empleadonan a tira votonan valido. Den |
grupo Nacional, 3151 voto valido a worde tira. E grupo no-nacional a
tira 1599 voto valido haciendo asina un total di 4750 voto valido. E
cantidad total di voto valido a surpasa considerablemente e cantidad
di votonan valido cu a worde tira durante eleccion di 1951, munstrando
mas tanto interes door di constituyentenan den Lago Employee Council
como un cuerpo negociativo.

Tin un significacion tras di e cantidad di votonan valido, Tiramento
di un voto door di un individuo bao sistema di representacion di Lago
ta munstra cu el ta interesé den su trabao, su familia, y su Compania.
Cu e sistema di representacion tan extensivo manera e ta aki, tur tres
ta worde haci door di hendenan eligi como miembronan di council of
di comiténan door di empleadonan di Lago. Plena realizacion di esaki
door di constituyentenan ta worde indica door di e cantidad di votonan
valido tira durante eleccion pasa di LEC. Constituyentenan ta activa-
mente interesa den nan seguridad di trabao, nan condicionnan di trabao,
nan condicionnan di biba, nan condicionnan di recreacion y ta, den can-
tidad creciente, participando den eleccionnan pa eligi e hombernan cu
nan ta sinti ta mehor capaz pa negocia asuntonan tocante nan
interesnan.

Votamento aumenta ta indica confianza aumenta den gruponan |
representativo. Un tal confianza ta asegura exito continuo di sistema |
di representacion y bon relacionnan entre empleadonan y Directiva.

What Happened to the Esso News

Perhaps we should have warned our readers in the Dec. 19 issue of |
the change in the Aruba Esso News beginning with the Jan. 2 issue.
Inadvertently we caused quite a bit of concern. First, it was men of
KLM who assist in bringing the Esso News to Aruba from Curacao
where it is printed. The same number of bundles was involved, but they |
were much smaller and lighter. Naturally, the KLM men, many of
whom have handled the Esso News since its inception, wondered what |
happened. When the thousands of copies of the Esso News were |
brought to the refinery and then delivered to many distribution points |
in packages, the question of "what happened?’’ was heard more and |
more. When the packages were opened and single copies distributed,
many readers, at first glance, thought we had printed a four-page issue
and that accounted for its thinness. But when our readers investigated |
they found six pages — the same as in many previous issues. |

But, there was something different — quite different. The Jan. 2
issue was printed on a lighter paper. |

No, it was not a mistake in the print shop. Your editors of the Esso |
News requested the change. Why the change? The switch to a lighter
paper while still maintaining the excellent quality stock the Esso
News has always used was done for the convenience of our many
thousands of readers. The lighter stock used for the Jan. 2 issue is
easier to handle — more convenient when reading. It replaces paper
that was heavy and thick and at times quite burdensome for the reader.

As far as quality is concerned, the new paper has the same fine fi--
nish as the old. The same high standards of reproduction will be main- |
tained. The only loss to our readers is weight — a loss that is a con- |
venient gain. |

apology to Lago Police Chief B

his name from a list of those Lago

The list was printed in the Jan.

wal of the Order of Oranje-Nassau

this paper in turn notified the Goy-

sentative of the Department of Pu-

study and preservation. Meanwhile,
back at the burial site, the discove-
rers decided what they must do.
Remove Bones

Dominico and his helpers removed
the bones from the urn and carefully
returned them to their original res-

sO







ting place. The fragile urns, which
unfortunately had been broken in a
few places by the thrust of the

shovels that first bumped into them,
were saved for the government.

To please one’s God and one’s Go-
vernment is not always an easy thing.
To please the Press at the same time,
that is impossible! Who could foretell
that the photographer would want to
tak» a picture of a person who had
been dead for perhaps 2000 years?
Still, that is what he wanted to do, so
Dominico patiently uncovered
much-disturbed bones. A fle

the bright mid-morning sun; and the
photographer — as all people with
cameras seem to do said, "All

The approach of

greetings to friends and as
and gives rise to reflection upon the
year about to end.
Foremost in my reflections is the
tifying knowledge that again the
cord for Jersey is one in which we
may take pride. Challenging situa-
tions have been met with energy, vi-
sion, and purpose. The fact that such
record is not new for Jersey in no
way dims its luster, for it is evidence
of the continued good will and help-
ful spirit of members of the Jersey
family, in many lands, working to.

‘Laundry 9 Years

When the 104 employe

jury.

In the previous

not one minor injury was reported.

me. They were polite and helpful.

Constable Schouten held a_ folding
scale next to the urns so that a pic-
ture could be made to show the size of
the urns. Then, after more pictures
were taken, Mr. Hendrik Kemminck,
Head Inspector, Department of Pu-
blic Works, took charge of the urns
for the government.

Mr. Kemminck said that all such
objects found in Aruba are kept by
the Department of Public Works for
Dr. Hartogh until such time as the
government can get or build a buil-
ding for a museum. Dr. Hartogh will
study the urns together with others
found in Aruba and Curacao and
compare them to other urns found in
the northern parts of South America.

Ever now, not very much is known
about things like this. Perhaps Mrs.
Danje knew more than anyone. She
said that just hearing about the bones







| in the urn gave her goosepimples, and

she didn’t want to see them.

Mr. Hagerman, who left Aruba

Thirteen months later he was nam-

appointed operator. After almost five
years as an operator, Mr. Hagerman

Two days prior to his departure
from Aruba, Mr. Hagerman was
honored with a retirement luncheon
at the Esso Dining Hall at which he

Six Items Highlight

Among the topics discussed at

the joint Lago Employee Council- |
Management meeting Dec. 29, six |
of the agreed items highlighted the

session,

Following discussion
ment in the Dec, 29 meeting and pre-
vious meetings, eligible employees
may now attain temporary status in
a higher job after working in it for |
60 consecutive shifts. The number of
consecutive shifts as agreed upon is
a reduction of 30 consecutive shifts
from 90 that had been in effect. |
There is no change, however, in the |

present requirement for accumulating | .

90 shifts in the higher job before be-
coming eligible to attain temporary |
status. 1f an employee who had tem- |
porary status in a higher job suffers
a break of seven days or less between
acting assignments, he will be grant-
ed temporary status immediately!
upon reassignment to the higher job.
This differs from the previous policy
in that an employee had to work in|
the higher assignment for 90 consecu- |
tive shifts when reassigned. |

Effective Jan. 1, an employee who
resigns or is discharged after more
than a year’s service will receive
earned vacation time prorated on the
basis of one-twelfth of a year’s vaca-
tion for each completed month. The
prorating by months is over and|
above the normal yearly increment
and does not apply to bonus vacation.
Only earned vacation time is involved.
The new prorating by month over the
normal increment does not apply to
employees who are discharged or re-
sign with less than a year’s service.
Formerly an employee received only
the yearly increment. Vacations for
employees terminated because of lay-
off or medical reasons will continue
to be prorated as at present.

Death Notice |

A liberalization was also agreed |
upon concerning notification of |
deaths in the immediate family off
the Island and ensuing time off. Pre-
viously an employee who received |
word of death in his immediate fa-
mily did not receive time off. Under
the new liberalization, however, if an
employee receives such word during
normal working hours, he will receiv
the remainder of that working day |
off. If word of death in the immediate
family is received before or after the
working day, no time off is granted.

The Frog and the Crow

A crow once caught a fine fat Frog, and taking him in her bill she
flew with him to the roof of a neighboring house in order to devour
him at her leisure. As she alighted on the roof of the house, the Frog

gave an audible chuckle.

"What are you laughing at, Brother Frog?" asked the Crow.

"Oh, nothing, Sister Crow,” s:

aid the Frog. "Never mind me. I was

just thinking to myself that, as it fortunately happens, my father lives

close by here, on this very roof, and
as he is exceedingly fierce and
strong, he will certainly avenge my
death if anyone injures me.”

The Crow did not quite like this,
and thinking it as well to be on the
safe side, she hopped off to another
corner of the roof, near to where a
led away the rain water by
of a small hole in the parapet

as just about to begin to swal-
low the Frog, when

the Frog gave

another chuckle.
"What are you laughing at this
time, Brother Frog?” asked the

Crow.

"Oh, it’s only a small matter, Sister
Crow, hardly worth mentioning,” re-
plied the Frog, "but it just occurred
to me that my uncle, who is even a
stronger and fiercer man than my
father, lives in this very gutter, and
that if anybody was to do me an in-
jury here they would have a_ very
small of escaping from his





The Crow was somewhat alarmed
at hearing this, and she thought that,
on the whole, it would be safer to

Crow, I notice your bill seems rather
blunt. Before you begin to eat me,
don’t you think it would be a good
thing to sharpen it a little? You can
strop it very nicely on that flat stone
over there.”

The Crow, thinking this was a good
idea, took two or three hops toward
the stone, and began sharpening her
bill. As soon as she had turned her
back, the Frog gave one desperate
jump and dived into the well. |

As soon as the Crow had made her |

spied the Frog in the water, and cal-

I was afraid you were lost. My bill
is quite nice and sharp now, so come

Gromit LEC Election

It is of credit to the members of the Lago Employee Council — both
past and present — that they, through their efforts on behalf of
Lago’s employees, have established Council esteem in the ranks of
their constituents. The large number of Lago employees that took part |
in the LEC election is, in effect, a vote of confidence for the present |
representation system.

Over the period of Dec. 10, 11, and 12 — the three LEC election
days — 82.63 per cent of available employees cast valid ballots. In the |
National group, 3151 valid ballots were cast. The Non-Nationals cast |
1599 valid ballots for a total of 4750 valid ballots cast. The total valid
votes tabulated far exceeded the number cast during the 1951 LEC
election, showing increased interest by the constituents in the Lago |
Employee Council as a negotiating body.

There is significance behind the number of valid votes, It lies in why |
the thousands of Lago employees voted in increasing numbers as they |
have during the past year. The casting of a vote by an individual under
Lago’s representation system shows he is concerned with his job, his
family, and his Company. With the representation system here as wide-
spread as it is, all three are effected by men elected to the council and
committees by Lago employees. Full realization of this by the con- |
stituents is shown in the number of valid ballots cast during the LEC
and other elections. The constituents are actively interested in their
job security, their working conditions, their living conditions, their |
recreational conditions and are, in increasing numbers, taking part in |
elections to select the men they feel will best negotiate items involving
their interests.

Increased voting shows increased faith in the representative groups. |
Such faith ensures continued success of the representation system and |
relationship between employees and Management.

Tocante Eleccion di LEC

Ta un credito pa miembronan di Lago Employee Council — tanto |
esnan actual como di pasado — cu nan, door di nan esfuerzonan pa
empleadonan di Lago, a establece aprecio pa Council den rangonan di
nan constituyentenan. E cantidad grandi di empleadonan di Lago cu a
participa den eleccion di LEC, en realidad, ta un voto di confianza pa
e sistema actual di representacion.

Durante e periodo di Dec. 10, 11, y 12 — e tres dianan di eleccion |
pa LEC — 82.63 por ciento di empleadonan a tira votonan valido. Den |
grupo Nacional, 3151 voto valido a worde tira. E grupo no-nacional a
tira 1599 voto valido haciendo asina un total di 4750 voto valido. E
cantidad total di voto valido a surpasa considerablemente e cantidad
di votonan valido cu a worde tira durante eleccion di 1951, munstrando
mas tanto interes door di constituyentenan den Lago Employee Council
como un cuerpo negociativo.

Tin un significacion tras di e cantidad di votonan valido, Tiramento
di un voto door di un individuo bao sistema di representacion di Lago
ta munstra cu el ta interesé den su trabao, su familia, y su Compania.
Cu e sistema di representacion tan extensivo manera e ta aki, tur tres
ta worde haci door di hendenan eligi como miembronan di council of
di comiténan door di empleadonan di Lago. Plena realizacion di esaki
door di constituyentenan ta worde indica door di e cantidad di votonan
valido tira durante eleccion pasa di LEC. Constituyentenan ta activa-
mente interesa den nan seguridad di trabao, nan condicionnan di trabao,
nan condicionnan di biba, nan condicionnan di recreacion y ta, den can-
tidad creciente, participando den eleccionnan pa eligi e hombernan cu
nan ta sinti ta mehor capaz pa negocia asuntonan tocante nan
interesnan.

Votamento aumenta ta indica confianza aumenta den gruponan |
representativo. Un tal confianza ta asegura exito continuo di sistema |
di representacion y bon relacionnan entre empleadonan y Directiva.

What Happened to the Esso News

Perhaps we should have warned our readers in the Dec. 19 issue of |
the change in the Aruba Esso News beginning with the Jan. 2 issue.
Inadvertently we caused quite a bit of concern. First, it was men of
KLM who assist in bringing the Esso News to Aruba from Curacao
where it is printed. The same number of bundles was involved, but they |
were much smaller and lighter. Naturally, the KLM men, many of
whom have handled the Esso News since its inception, wondered what |
happened. When the thousands of copies of the Esso News were |
brought to the refinery and then delivered to many distribution points |
in packages, the question of "what happened?’’ was heard more and |
more. When the packages were opened and single copies distributed,
many readers, at first glance, thought we had printed a four-page issue
and that accounted for its thinness. But when our readers investigated |
they found six pages — the same as in many previous issues. |

But, there was something different — quite different. The Jan. 2
issue was printed on a lighter paper. |

No, it was not a mistake in the print shop. Your editors of the Esso |
News requested the change. Why the change? The switch to a lighter
paper while still maintaining the excellent quality stock the Esso
News has always used was done for the convenience of our many
thousands of readers. The lighter stock used for the Jan. 2 issue is
easier to handle — more convenient when reading. It replaces paper
that was heavy and thick and at times quite burdensome for the reader.

As far as quality is concerned, the new paper has the same fine fi--
nish as the old. The same high standards of reproduction will be main- |
tained. The only loss to our readers is weight — a loss that is a con- |
venient gain. |

days after their discovery, the men
kept silent and did nothing. They
handled the aboriginal ” ets” with
extreme ¢: and went on with their
digging. Finally, Dominico, still filled












with doubts, talked it over with his
mother.

Mrs. Dar calling an article in
the Aruba ews about Indians

in old-time Aruba by Dr. John Har-

port the find. Dispatching a re-
porter and photographer to the scene,
this paper in turn notified the Goy-

sentative of the Department of Pu-

study and preservation. Meanwhile,
back at the burial site, the discove-

Remove Bones

Dominico and his helpers removed
the bones from the urn and carefully
returned them to their original res-

unfortunately had been broken in a
few places by the thrust of the

shovels that first bumped into them,
were saved for the government.

To please the Press at the same time,
that is impossible! Who could foretell
that the photographer would want to
tak» a picture of a person who had
been dead for perhaps 2000 years?
Still, that is what he wanted to do, so
Dominico patiently uncovered
much-disturbed bones. A fle

Constable Schouten held a_ folding
scale next to the urns so that a pic-
ture could be made to show the size of
the urns. Then, after more pictures
were taken, Mr. Hendrik Kemminck,
Head Inspector, Department of Pu-

for the government.

Mr. Kemminck said that all such
objects found in Aruba are kept by
the Department of Public Works for
Dr. Hartogh until such time as the
government can get or build a buil-
ding for a museum. Dr. Hartogh will
study the urns together with others
found in Aruba and Curacao and
compare them to other urns found in
the northern parts of South America.

Ever now, not very much is known

than a year’s service will receive
earned vacation time prorated on the
basis of one-twelfth of a year’s vaca-
tion for each completed month. The
prorating by months is over and|
above the normal yearly increment
and does not apply to bonus vacation.
Only earned vacation time is involved.
The new prorating by month over the
normal increment does not apply to
employees who are discharged or re-
sign with less than a year’s service.
Formerly an employee received only
the yearly increment. Vacations for
employees terminated because of lay-
off or medical reasons will continue
to be prorated as at present.

Death Notice |

A liberalization was also agreed |
upon concerning notification of |
deaths in the immediate family off
the Island and ensuing time off. Pre-
viously an employee who received |
word of death in his immediate fa-
mily did not receive time off. Under
the new liberalization, however, if an
employee receives such word during
normal working hours, he will receiv
the remainder of that working day |
off. If word of death in the immediate
family is received before or after the
working day, no time off is granted.

The Frog and the Crow

A crow once caught a fine fat Frog, and taking him in her bill she
flew with him to the roof of a neighboring house in order to devour
him at her leisure. As she alighted on the roof of the house, the Frog

gave an audible chuckle.

"What are you laughing at, Brother Frog?" asked the Crow.

"Oh, nothing, Sister Crow,” s:

aid the Frog. "Never mind me. I was

just thinking to myself that, as it fortunately happens, my father lives

close by here, on this very roof, and
as he is exceedingly fierce and
strong, he will certainly avenge my
death if anyone injures me.”

The Crow did not quite like this,
and thinking it as well to be on the
safe side, she hopped off to another
corner of the roof, near to where a
led away the rain water by
of a small hole in the parapet

as just about to begin to swal-
low the Frog, when

the Frog gave

another chuckle.
"What are you laughing at this
time, Brother Frog?” asked the

Crow.

"Oh, it’s only a small matter, Sister
Crow, hardly worth mentioning,” re-
plied the Frog, "but it just occurred
to me that my uncle, who is even a
stronger and fiercer man than my
father, lives in this very gutter, and
that if anybody was to do me an in-
jury here they would have a_ very
small of escaping from his





The Crow was somewhat alarmed
at hearing this, and she thought that,
on the whole, it would be safer to
leave the roof altogether. So again
picking up the F in her bill, she
flew off to the ground below, and
alighted near the edge of a well.

Here she placed the Frog upon the

him when the Frog said, ’Oh, Sister
Crow, I notice your bill seems rather
blunt. Before you begin to eat me,
don’t you think it would be a good
thing to sharpen it a little? You can
strop it very nicely on that flat stone
over there.”

The Crow, thinking this was a good
idea, took two or three hops toward
the stone, and began sharpening her
bill. As soon as she had turned her
back, the Frog gave one desperate
jump and dived into the well. |

As soon as the Crow had made her |
bill nice and sharp, she returned from
the stone and looked about for the
Frog. Not finding him where she had
left him, she hopped to the edge of
the well and peeped over, ning her
head from side to side. Presently she
spied the Frog in the water, and cal-
led out to him. "Oh, Brother Frog,
I was afraid you were lost. My bill
is quite nice and sharp now, so come
along up and be eaten.

"I am sorry, Sister Crow,” replied
the Frog, ”but the fact is, I cannot
get up the sides of this well. The best
thing would be for you to come down
here to eat me.”
