Acid Fumes





A once-retired smokestack has
been lengthened, renovated and
called back to work to carry the
fumes from the Acid and Edeleanu
Plant high into the air where they
won’t bother anyone, even the birds.

The stack went into retirment
when the No. evaporating plant
was abandoned three years ago. It
lay unused until last year when a
decision to do something about the
acid plant fumes was made.

Then the stack was cleaned of

Navy Men

Entertained in Aruba

Over 1100 United States crewmen

and officers of the USS Tidewater

and the USS Randall have been entertained in Aruba the past two

weeks.

Said a boatswain from the Tidewater, "It’s a visit I'll never forget.”
Earlier a chief quartermaster from the Randall exclaimed, ‘Man,

I haven't had such a good time since my last hitch

The island government, the island’s
social and athletic organizations and
Lago went all out to provide enter-
tainment and recreation for the 435
sailors and 48 officers of the "Ran-
dall” and the 600 sailors and 35 of-
ficers of the "Tidewater."

The ”Tidewater,” a destroyer-ten-
der, pulled into Oranjestad harbor
March 7. Before the ship sailed early
Monday morning, the men or officers
were scheduled to:

Be taken on a tour of the island
and to a swimming party at Pova

In a move designed to increase
employees’ job satisfaction and to
promote efficiency, the Engineer-

Today a project — once the joint

by one "’section,.” |

With the exception of the Equip-
ment Inspection Group, the division
has been revamped. Today there are
four Project Engineering sections, a
Budget Section and an Engineering
Service: ction. They are under the
joint supervision of two Assistant
Division Superintendents who in turn
report to the Division Superintendent.

Responsibility for the development
and completion of projects within the
refine and its supporting units is

green card holders is to have these
non-nationals report to the Immigra-

deposit has not been paid at the time

to re-enter the island.





Pink Cards

Many of Lago’s employees hold a
pink immigration card which indica-
tes that the Company assumed
the responsibility for their repatria-
tion. At present, the Company has not
required such individuals to deposit
additional sums. In the future, how-
ever, anyone for whom the Company
assumes responsibility for the first
time will be required to deposit the
additional amount. This will also be
the case for families. Govern-

Grenada Church

Christ Church Carriacou of Grena-

Sanctuary and church tower in pr
paration for the coming anniversa

To help in making these two pro-
jects successful, Grenadians through-
out the Caribbean who were members
or whose families were members of
the church have been assisting with
contributions. In Aruba, Mathias

The church was constructed in

His skill with radios — a talent
he first developed as a hobby — may
be the means by which he can remain
in the only area of the world where
he can escape his affliction.

It was in May, 1949, that 43-year-
old Richard Neirop — sitting at his
amateur radio set in his home in
Amsterdam — first heard an Aruba
amateur calling across the Atlantic.

Mr. Neirop answered, and set in
motion a chain of events that v
eventually to bring him over the
same path his voice had _ traveled
three years earlier.

"It left me only half-alive,” he

said.

Doctors said he could not work out- |
side in inclement weather, and Holl-
and’s relatively short three-month
building season saddled him with
nine months of idle time.

Over his short-wave set one day
in 1936, he heard a pair of amateur
audio “hams” chatting half-way |
around th> world. "That I want to |
do,” he said to himself.

He started out to build a_ set)
"In Holland we like to do things
for ourselves” and taught himself

In the fall of that year his station,
PAOFD, went on the air. With a
telegraph key, Mr. Neirop started
building a network of friends around
the world. And because so many of
them spoke English, he taught him-
self the language.

On May 10, 1941, the Germans in-
vaded Holland and the Dutch govern-
ment commandeered all amateur
radio equipment. After Holland fell,

contracting business, but the next
year was hospitalized with his illness.

"Fourteen years before doctor
had told me to go to the tropics. He
said it was the only place I could

"But we had no money. By 1946 it
had all gone for food during
war and hospital bills.”

verted to his hobby.

First Reply

His first “contact” with Aruba
came on his birthday in May, 1949.
Because of the superior transmission
weather which prevails during that
month, he could hear George Heer-
inga of station PJ2AA, Dakota, call-
ing any amateur in Holland.









"As it turned out, George’s call

of jellyfish which floats atop the water and catches its food with
dozens of tentacles which dangle below. Unable to preserve the
specimen for their museum, the boys had its picture taken as a
permanent record of an infrequent visitor to Aruba’s shores.

A once-retired smokestack has

won’t bother anyone, even the birds.

The stack went into retirment
when the No. evaporating plant
was abandoned three years ago. It
lay unused until last year when a
decision to do something about the
acid plant fumes was made.

Then the stack was cleaned of

But the new set-up will change that.

‘In Efficiency Bid

In a move designed to increase
employees’ job satisfaction and to
promote efficiency, the Engineer-
jing Division of the Technical Ser-
vice Department has been reorga-
nized.

Today a project — once the joint
|responsibility of five more
“squads” or groups — is completed
by one "’section,.” |

Under the new set-up which went
into effect March 1, the "section” is
military
Within its ranks are specialists in
various phases of its work, just as an
Army task force now has its own
artille Navy task force its
destroy

With the exception of the Equip-
ment Inspection Group, the division
has been revamped. Today there are
four Project Engineering sections, a
Budget Section and an Engineering
Service: ction. They are under the
joint supervision of two Assistant
Division Superintendents who in turn
report to the Division Superintendent.

Responsibility for the development
and completion of projects within the
refine and its supporting units is
specifically assigned to each Pro-

or







similar to a t force.

In order to minimize these and

The change is designed, however,
to allow a man wider scope for his
talents. If an expert on piping, for
example, able to write up
specifications, he can be given that
task too.

The first session was opened by F.

dent. In his remarks, Mr. Griffin
stated it will benefit all employees to
have trained leaders available on
short notice in case of a mishap. He
told the participants of the program’s
first class that the course was the re-
sult of a decision to have first aid in-
structors well distributed throughout
the plant. "The Aruba refinery is as
conscicus of safety and safe practices
as any refinery in the world as shown
by our safety record,” he said.

Each group — made up of from

Former Amsterdam Contractor

Man Finally Reaches Tropics Through "Ham" Friends

A one-time Amsterdam contractor is in Aruba today, trying to

His trip to the tropics, oft-delayed by lack of money, was made poss-

His skill with radios — a talent
he first developed as a hobby — may
be the means by which he can remain
in the only area of the world where
he can escape his affliction.

It was in May, 1949, that 43-year-
old Richard Neirop — sitting at his
amateur radio set in his home in
Amsterdam — first heard an Aruba
amateur calling across the Atlantic.

Mr. Neirop answered, and set in
motion a chain of events that v

and’s relatively short three-month
building season saddled him with
nine months of idle time.

Over his short-wave set one day
in 1936, he heard a pair of amateur
audio “hams” chatting half-way |
around th> world. "That I want to |
do,” he said to himself.

He started out to build a_ set)

In the fall of that year his station,
PAOFD, went on the air. With a
telegraph key, Mr. Neirop started
building a network of friends around
the world. And because so many of
them spoke English, he taught him-
self the language.

On May 10, 1941, the Germans in-
vaded Holland and the Dutch govern-
ment commandeered all amateur
radio equipment. After Holland fell,

contracting business, but the next
year was hospitalized with his illness.

"Fourteen years before doctor
had told me to go to the tropics. He
said it was the only place I could

"But we had no money. By 1946 it
had all gone for food during
war and hospital bills.”

While in the hospital, one of his

The next three he spent

the rest of his time in his radio

verted to his hobby.

First Reply

His first “contact” with Aruba
came on his birthday in May, 1949.
Because of the superior transmission
weather which prevails during that
month, he could hear George Heer-

"As it turned out, George’s call

THE “RANDALL” VISITS ARUBA: For four d the crew of the attack-transport USS Randall visited Aruba
— and Aruba visited the Randall.” While the ship played host to hundreds of visitors (upper left), Lago played
host to hundreds of the ’Randall’s” crew at a picnic (right.) At top right is a full view of the vessel just before
it sailed for Puerto Rico to pick up 1500 Marines bound for maneuvers off the coast of North Carolina.

incoming oil. Once a year the bases of the bundles are machined to provide a leak-proof gasket f The
machining was an expensive, arduous task until the “eradle” made it possible to do the work ona boring mill.

SNAKES ALIVE — AND DEAD:
The Lago Vocational School picked
up this santanero snake for the
school’s fast-growing museum. A
short time later, the snake laid five
eggs. Despite attempts to help
the mother hatch them, the eggs
(foreground) dried up. The mother,
evidently in a fit of pique, prompt-
ly shed her skin and curled up to
sulk. Parts of the discarded skin
lie in the right foreground and
between the eggs and the snake.

A DENIZEN (NOT OF) THE DEEP: The Lago Vocational School
first year swimming class headed by Instructor Roy Straughn trooped
down to the Sea Grape Grove beach about 7:30 a.m. Feb. 27. There,
at the water’s edge, lay a puffed-up Portugese Man-o-War, a type
of jellyfish which floats atop the water and catches its food with
dozens of tentacles which dangle below. Unable to preserve the
specimen for their museum, the boys had its picture taken as a
permanent record of an infrequent visitor to Aruba’s shores.







UN HABITANTE (NO DI) PROFUNDIDAD: E promer klas_ di
landamento di Lago Vocational School bao guia di instructor Roy
Straugh a aleanza Sea Grape Grove beach mas of menos 7:30 a.m.
Feb. 27. Aya, na canto di awa, nan a haya un zeekat bulando, un
sorto di bestia cu ta flota ariba awa y cu ta coi su cuminda cu can-
tidad di tengla cu e tin ta colga abao. Como e muchanan no tabata
por a preserva e muestra aki pa nan museo mas, nan a laga saca
su portret pa un record permanente di un bishitante infrecuente na
costanan di Aruba.

Rin-Jin, Rey di Lamar, a casa cu un joven y bunita Princesa Dragon. |
Nan no tabata casé pa mucho tempo ora e reina a cai malo, y tur con- |
seho y atencion di e doctornan grandi di e reinado no tabata yuda pa

nada.

“Oh,” e reina a snik, tin solamente un cos na mundo cu por cura

mi maleza!”



"Y kiko esey ta?” Rin-Jin a in-
forma.

”Si mi come higra di un macaco
bibo lo mi dira bon mes ora. Por

favor, busca un higra di macaco pa
mi, pasobra mi sabi cu nada otro por
debolbe mi bida.”

Asina ta cu Rin-Jin a laga yama
un zeekat, y a bisa: ’Mi kier pa bo

"Pa persuadi e pa bo
mester conte’le di milagronan di pro-
fundidad y di e bunitezanan raro di
mi palacio grandi, cu su vloernan di
perla y su murayanan di coral.”

E zeekat, contento cu e pensamen-
to cu salud y felicidad di su reina ta-
bata depende ariba di su empresa, no
a perde tempo pa landa bai terra.

ariba un isla ya el a observa un bu-
