The students will appear as inde-

It was about 1 o’clock the morning

The change-over occurred the mor-



ning of April 14 when — within 21%
hours — 92 patients were fted
from the old to the new facilities.

At 8 o’clock, nurses started trans-

| ferring children and surgical patients

to the first floor, then moved ob-
stetric and gynecology cases to the
third floor, Next came internal medi- |
cine cases who were shifted to the
second floor and by 10:30 the move
had been completed.

Two shifts of nurses were required |
to handle the transfer because of the |
change in grouping of patients with-
in the new wing. Where they had
been divided by pay-roll in the section |
they were leaving, they were to be
grouped according to illness in the}
one they were entering. |

As a result, only parts of sections
could be moved at one time. Nurses
were required to be on hand in both
the new and old quarters.

Planning for the move, which had |
been in progress for several weeks,
went into effect Monday afternoon
when all the patients then in the hos-
pital were assigned beds in the new |
quarters.

When Tuesday morning arrived,
they were carried in stretchers, mov-
ed in wheel-chairs or walked
according to the nature of their ill-,
ness — to the beds assigned in the
new wing. Moved along with them
was medical equipment required for
their care.

The shift was planned so that the
patients woula not miss any medi-





cinal applications nor mid-meal
nourishment. Patients entering the
hospital Tuesday were assigned

directly to beds in the new quarters.

LEC Constituents
Vote on Preferred

Work Week Hours

Whether or not constituents of the
Lago Employee Council who work a
48-hour week will continue to main-
tain this schedule or drop back to a
shorter work week has been decided.
As the E News went to press the
constituents had voted indicating
their preference; the ballots are being
and the result will be an-





The voting on the length of the
work week resulted when Work Regu-
lation 1952, promulgated by the Sta-
ten, set the maximum number of
working hours in one week at 45, The
regulation, however, provides for
exemptions in continuous operations
such as Lago, the Government water
works and others. The recent ballot-
ing will inform the Company whether
or not the majority of LEC consti-
tuents want the exemption.

Following the promulgation of the
regulation, the Company informed the
LEC that it would not continue pre-
sent wages for a 45-hour work week.
The Company told members of the
Council that it would start exemption
proceedings if so requested by the
constituents.

The ballots clearly put the decision
up to each 48-hour constituent of the
LEC. The two selections on the ballot
were:

1. Iam in favor of keeping the 48-
hour work week schedule.

2. I am in favor of reducing the
48-hour work week schedule to a 44.8-
hour work week schedule. I under-
stand this would involve a correspond-
ing reduction in pay of approximately
6%4 percent.

Gold Mines May Reopen

Arubans Plan Corporation
To Put Up Plant, Buy Ore

From Unemployed Islanders

Aruba’s economy, so dependent vpon oil, may get a shot in the arm

from gold. Attempts are being made to revive the island’s gold mining |

industry.

A group of men hopes to form a corporation, set up a plant and}

process gold ore. They plan to buy the ore from men, now unemployed,

who would work Aruba’s gold fields as independent producers.

into the hands of a group of Aruba
merchants who had formed a corpo-
ration at the suggestion of Cornelius
Eman.

”For 40,000 guilders, they bought
a plant worth $1,000,000,” Henny
Eman, son of the man who spark-
plugged the merchants’ group, ex-
plained. By operating only the plant
and buying the ore from "tribodors”

Mateas and Andreas Erasmus, two
brothers who live near Crystal
Mountain, had mined gold in Aruba
for years. They knew where the gold
was, how to get it out.

But like hundreds of other Arubans
who had pecked at the soil for years,
they had been handcuffed by a lack
of money to buy a machine to grind

As the larger pieces moved to the

cup of the shovel.

Finally he looked up and pointed

of the shovel. There, glinting in the
| bright morning sun-light, were some |
| 30 flecks of gold.

Gold In Aruba

"You see, there is still gold in|
| Aruba!” Mr. Eman exclaimed. |
Back at their home near Crystal
Mountain, the brothers showed how |
|they extracted the fle of gold
|from the ore with which they were
| still mixed. Into an earthenware bowl
| they poured quick-silver and the gold |
flaked ore.

The quick-silver, or mercury, at-
tracted the gold much as a magnet |
attracts iron. The quick-silver was
then poured through a cloth into
another bowl. The cloth strained the |
gold from the mercury.

Speaking in Papiamento, the bro- |
thers explained that when they had|
strained out a quantity of gold, they |
furtheer purified it by burning off |
— in a retort — the thin coating of
mereury around each flake of gold.

E. A. de Cuba, who is i as
a representative of Lt. Gov. oats
C. Kwartz in the plans to reopen
the industry, said, "They lose about |
50 percent of the gold, mining it this
way. They can’t pound the ore fine
enough to free all the gold. One of
the things we need most is a grin- |



a









fine as flour’. |
| |
|

Grinder, Laboratory Needed

Also needed, he said, was a labo-
ratory at which ore samples could be
assayed to pinpoint the most profi- |
| table diggings. |

"If we can find ore that will yield

4 \two ounces of gold a ton it will be}

| profitable to go into operation”, he
said. Ore bearing up to 15 ounces of
gold a ton has been mined in Aruba.

"We can go into business,” Mr.





~*|Eman explained, "but it must be on

a small scale. The veins are too
narrow for big operatio ” He
pointed out that numerous companies,
which have studied the field with an
eye to reopening the industry, declined
because of the operation limitations.

In Cologne last September, Mr.
Eman d, a manufacturer of gold
mining equipment told him he could

In order to raise the money to

other initial investments, the group

"We should be able to provide
work for 500 to 600 persons,” Mr.
Eman explained. "Some would work
in the concession, some would work
in the plant while others would work |
carrying the ore from the conces
to the plant.”

He estimated that a man could ship
200 to 300 pounds of ore each day
to the plant which would have a
daily capacity of 50 to 60 tons of ore.

"No one would get rich” Mr. Eman |
said, "but it would mean work for |
a lot of people who have no work |

With gold selling on the world
market of about Fls. 66.50 per fine
ounce, it is estimated a "tribudor’” |
who could turn out a daily average |
of 250 pounds of two-ounce ore, could |
gross about Fis. 16 per day. |

If England is successful in its
plan to double the world market price
of gold, the proposed revival of the
industry would take on added signi-
ficance for Aruba.

According to Mr. Eman, dozens of
Arubans have for years eked out |
part of their living from the island’s
gold. Some have worked the pits in
the simple manner demonstrated by |
the Erasmus brothers.

Gold Still Found

Others have spent their time wal-
king over the area in the hope of
spotting nuggets on the ground. In
the corner of a hankerchief Mateas
has tied 10 to 15 pieces of gold, each
about the size of a small fingernail,
which he has picked up in his wan-
derings. ;

Still others have panned” for gold,
washing the gold-bearing sand by
the same method used years ago in
the western part of the United







Mr. de Cuba is developing a fourth
method of mining gold. From plans
supplied by a California concern, he
has built what he calls a "doodle-
bug;” a small placer mining machine.

Into a hopper go sands from such
areas as the slopes of Matividiri
Mountain and the land around Santa
Lucia. A pipe sprays the sand with
water and washes f the gravel.

The water, carrying the sand,
passes through a grid at the bottom
of the hopper while the gravel is
caught in a chute and discarded. The
water and sand fall into a drum
where the larger pieces of sand are
once again screened out and discard-

d.








Cloth Holds Gold

The water, carrying the finest
particles, passes down and through
a riffle box whose screen is a fine-
meshed cloth. Only the finest of the

possible adjunct to the hardrock
operations in the concession.

None of the men interested in
reviving the industry expect the
fabulous finds of the past — 20 and
30 pound pieces of almost solid gold
— to be repeated.

But as Mr. Eman said, ”"What the
companies could not do on a large
scale, we hope to do on a small scale.

e mina mayor na Bushiribana, e ru-
mannan a coba mas of menos dos
liber di kwarts.

Mientras Mateas a bai na un otro
mina pa busca mas kwarts, Andreas
a cai sinta y a pone un wea frusto

| entre su rudia. Den e wea el a basha

e mineral, despues el a garne cu
punta di un piek. E mineral garna
el a basha den un shovel.

For di un bleki cu Mateas a yena
na un poos ey banda, Andreas a
basha awa ariba e material den e
shovel. Despues ta sigui e trabao la-
borioso pa laba e oro, Sagudiendo e
wea poco poco, Andreas tabata hala
e pidanan mas grandi pa e otro ban-
da di e shovel y seca nan.

Agregando awa, el tabata sigui
sagudi e pidanan mas fini. Mientras
e pidanan mas grandi a move bai na

| rand di e shovel, el tabata saca nan

afor, lagando un lodo shinishi fini
den e shovel.

Despues di pone mas awa acerca,
el ta sigui move e mezcla bai bini.
Mientras e lodo tabata move, An-
dreas tabata saca e partinan sushi
for di ariba e awa.

”Ainda Tin Oro Na Aruba”

Por fin el a lamta su cara waak y
a munstra e lugar unda cabo di e
shovel ta forma un depresion dren-
tando planta di e shovel. Aya, tabatin
un trinta pidacito masha chikito di
oro ta blink den solo di mainta.

"Bo ta mira, ainda tin oro
Aruba!” Sr. Eman a exclama.

Atrobe na nan cas na Seroe Plat,
€ rumannan a munstra com nan ta
saca e pida oronan for di e mineral
cu ainda nan tabata bruha cu ne. Nan
a basha e mineral di oro y un poco
kwikzilver den un komchi ceramico.

E kwikzilver, of kwik, a atrae e
oro mescos cu un magneet ta atrae
hero. Despues e kwikzilver a worde
basha den un otro komchi door di un
panja. E panja ta kita e oro for di
e kwik.

Papiando na Papiamento, e ruman-
nan a splica cu ora nan saca un
cierto cantidad di oro afor, nan ta
purifike’le kimando e kwikzilver afor
den un retort.

E. A. de Cuba, kende ta sirbi co-
mo un representante di Gezaghebber
L. C. Kwartsz den plannan pa bolbe

na







cuminza cu e industria, a bisa, "Nan |
ta perde como 50 por ciento di e oro, |
trahando na e manera aki. Nan no}
por garna e mineral bastante fini pa
saca tur e oro afor. Un di e cosnan
cu nos mester mas urgentemente ta
un grinder pa haci e mineral mas
fini cu harinja.”

Mester di Un Grinder y Laboratorio

Tambe un necesidad, el a bisa, ta-!
bata un laboratorio unda muestranan
di oro por worde examina pa fiha e)
cobamentonan di mas valor.

"Si nos por haya mineral cu por
produci dos ons di oro pa ton, anto
ya ta combini pa cuminza opera”,
el a bisa. Mineral produciendo te 15
ons pa ton a yega di worde coba na
Aruba.

"Nos por cuminza traha”, Sr.
Eman a splica, ”pero mester ta ariba
un escala chikito. E addernan ta)
mucho smal pa operacionnan grandi”.
El a splica cu cantidad di compania,
cu a studia e posibilidad pa bolbe cu-
minza cu e industria, a laga e asun-
to para pa motibo di e limitacionnan |
di trahamento.

Mientras el tabata na Cologna anja |
pasa na September, Sr. Eman a bisa,
un fabricador di hermentnan di coba
mina di oro a priminti cu el por tra-
ha un garnador, separador di cyanide
y un laboratorio pa mas of menos
$100,000.”

Pa obtene e suma pa cumpra e her-
mentnan y pa otro investacion, e gru-
po ta pensa di bende acciones den un
corporacion cu lo tuma e concesion
over — awor ta gobierno tin e con-
cesion — y establece un planta pa
garna e mineral, saca e oro y ben-
de’le.

E grupo ta pensa tambe pa presta |
placa cerca gobierno. |



"Mi ta segur cu, cu metodonan moderno, lo ta posible ariba un escala
chikito”, asina Gezaghebber Kwartsz a declara tocante e plan pa rebiba
industria di oro na Aruba. El a agrega cu Bestuurscollege di Aruba a

priminti un prestamo pa yuda habri

e minanan atrobe "si e muestranan

di mineral proba di ta bastante valioso.”

Empleo pa Hende Sin Trabao

Arubianonan cu no por haya otro
trabao, lo coba e mineral den e con-
cesion. Despues esaki lo worde exa-
mina den un laboratorio y e corpora-
cion lo cumpra e mineral for di e mi-
nero cu ta traha como productor in-
dependiente.

"Nos lo mester por duna trabao na
500 te 600 persona,” Sr. Eman a
splica. ’Algun lo traha den e conce-
sion, algun lo traha den planta mien-
tras otro lo traha treciendo e mine-
ral pa e planta.”

El a caleula cu un homber por
manda 200 te 300 liber di mineral tur
dia pa e planta, cual lo tin un capa-
cidad diario di 50 te 60 ton.

”Ningun hende lo bira rico”, Sr.
Eman a bisa, ’pero hopi hende cu
awendia no tin trabao lo haya algo
di gana.”

Oro ta worde bendi actualmente na
Fils. 66.50 pa ons fini. Ta worde cal-
cula cu un tribudor cu por entrega
250 liber di mineral cu ta produci 2

| ons pa ton pa dia, por saca mas of

menos Fls. 16 pa dia.

Si Inglaterra logra redobla e prijs
mundial pa oro, anto e industria pro-
poni lo tin ainda mas significacion
pa Aruba.

Segun Sr. Eman, cantidad di Aru-
bianonan a gana nan bida durante ho-

pi anja den cobamento di oro. Al-|

gun a traha cu e oro na e manera
crudo munstra door di rumannan
Erasmus.

Ainda Oro ta Worde Haya
Otro a pasa nan tempo camnando
den e area den speranza di haya oro
na terra. Na punta di un lenso Ma-



teas tin 10 te 15 pida oro, cada uno
mas of menos tamajo di un unja,
cual el a haya ora el tabata camna.

Otro a usa un sistema diferente,
labando e santo di oro den casi mes
manera cu nan tabata usa hopi tem-
po pas4 den parti west di Estados
Unidos.

Sr. de Cuba ta desaroyando un
cuatro manera di traha cu e oro. For
di plannan duna door di un empresa
na California, el a traha loke el ta
yama un wichelroede, un aparato
chikito di mina.

Den un hopper nan ta hinca santo
di lugarnan manera na Seroe Mati-
vidiri y e terreno rond di Santa Lu-
cia. Un pipa ta spuit e santo cu awa
y ta laba e mineral.

E awa, hibando e santo, ta pasa
door di un git den bom di e hopper
|mientras e pida piedranan ta worde
cogi den un contenedor y benta afor.
E awa y santo ta cai den un drum
unda e pidanan di santo mas grandi
ta worde saca atrobe y benta afor.



E awa, hibando e partinan mas
_chikito, ta pasa door di un caha cu
un adilanti di panja fini. Solamente
/e santo mas fini y e pida oronan cu
\ta presente ta keda den e caha, pa
| worde separa despues. El ta mira cu
| posiblemente e proceso aki por tin un
| oportunidad den e concesion.

Ningun di e personanan interes&
pa rebiba e industria ta spera e en-
cuentronan fabuloso di tempo pasa
— 20 y 30 pida di casi un liber di
oro solido.

Pero manera Sr. Eman a_ bisa,
”’Loke e companianan no por a hacié
na gran escala, nos ta spera di haci
ariba un escala chikito. E hendenan
| mester di trabao.”

OUT OF THIS WORLD: Looking like men from out of this world,
these members of the "concrete gang” of the Mechanical Department
are busy putting in a new base for the No. 7 turbo-generator in the
No. 1 Powerhouse. Working inches above sea-level, they’re wearing
fresh air masks to guard against hydrogen sulfide which seeps through
the coral strong enough to discolor the coins in their pockets. The new
General Electric turbo-generator will produce 7500 kilowatts; some
3500 more than the old No. 7 which "went bad” in January of 1952.
The new unit is expected to go into operation early next year.

S & R Vacation Policy
Changes Reexplained

Because of some confusion in the
current ition policy for Staff and
Regular employees, the Lago Em-
ployee Council reissued this week an
explanation of policy changes which








went into effect early this year.
Under the pol revision, S&R
employees who resign or are dis-

charged after six or more months of
service will be given — in place of
vacation — one day’s pay for each
month worked since the start of
their last holiday, or since their date
of employment, whichever is later.

The vacation policy for employees
whose service ends for involuntary
| reasons — lay-off, retirement, medi-
; cal, ete. — remains unchanged.

clothes.”

| Yes, very true, he must go to the
funeral. And she helped him on with
{his new suit, for it was so fine, he
|might tear it asunder if he put it
on alone.

So when he came up to the farm,
where the funeral was to be, they
had all drank hard and long, and
| you may fancy their grief was not
| greater when they saw him come in
his new suit. But when the train set
|off for the churchyard, and the dead
oan peeped through the breathing
holes, he burst out into a loud fit of
laughter. "Nay, nay!” he said, "I
can’t help laughing, though it is my
funeral, for if there isn’t Olof South-
grange walking to my funeral in his
shirt tails, without a shred of a
suit.”
| When the bearers heard that, they
were not slow in taking the lid off
the coffin. And the other husband,
he in the new suit, asked how it was
that this man, over whom they had
just drank funeral ale, lay there in
his coffin and chatted and laughed,
when it would be more seemly if he
wept.

"Ah!” said Farmer Northgrange,
"you know tears never yet dug up
anyone out of his grave - that’s why
I laughed myself to life again.”

But the end of all their talk was
that it came out that their goodies
had played them those tricks. So the
sbands went home and did the
st thing either of them had done
1 long time; and if anyone wishes
to know what it was, he had better
go and ask the birch cudgel.

of age in Junior and Senior events.
The students will appear as inde-

in the schools’ vacation schedules,
officials felt too little time

individual rather than team awards

Team awards will be made in
subsequent competition. The meet has
been set up on an annual basis.
Twelve and five Junior

» the first person in Aruba to
receive the President’s Medal.

It was about 1 o’clock the morning
of Dec. 28 that Mr. Pantophlet — who
before had defied death in
» attempts — risked his life in

third try. He was walking along
| Finger Pier No. 2 when the cry of
”man overboard” split the morning
air.

Racing to the wharf-side, he spotted
— in the darkened waters the
| figure of a man floating face-down
|near the wharf piles. Mr. Pantophlet
Varanned down to the pipes which line
the pier side, hooked an arm and

leg over the pipes and swung head-
| down to grasp the body.
| Other dock-workers, who had hur-
|ried to the spot, grabbed Mr. Pan-
| tophlet and puiled him — still holding
the unconcious figure atop the
| pier. There antophlet admini-
| stered artifical respiration until the
man showed signs of life. He was
then relieved by George Beck, first
|mate of the "Esso Reading.”
Mr. Beck to receive a ”Certi-
te of Assistance” from the council
| for his part in the rescue of the man
| who was later indentified as L. Allen,
a 30-year-old Irish seaman from the
3ritish tanker ’Busen Rollo.”

Investigation later showed that
Mr. Allen, on shore-leave prior to
leaving with the Rollo” for an
extended cruise in Antarctic waters
fueling whaling ships, was returning
to his vessel when he fell from the
pier into the water.

Mr. Allen was the second person
Mr. Pantophlet rescued. In 1937 he
pulled another seaman from the
wate the harbor. Five years

2 risked his life in another
cue try, but the man later died
from injuries sustained in the mishap.

IT TAKES ALL KINDS: The operation of a refinery requires a multi-

tude of skills, crafts and professions, but few so spectacular as that

performed here by C. Toussaint, a painter C. In a bosun’s chair, Mr.

Toussaint went aloft with a bucket of grease to coat the guy wires of

a blow- down drum stack while the Cat Cracker was down for its annual

inspection. He is a member of the Stack Painter ’gang’ which does
most of the "high work” during the inspection.

The newly-completed wing of the

which now becomes housing for cli

The change-over occurred the mor-



ning of April 14 when — within 21%
hours — 92 patients were fted
from the old to the new facilities.

At 8 o’clock, nurses started trans-

| ferring children and surgical patients

to the first floor, then moved ob-
stetric and gynecology cases to the
third floor, Next came internal medi- |
cine cases who were shifted to the
second floor and by 10:30 the move
had been completed.

Two shifts of nurses were required |
to handle the transfer because of the |
change in grouping of patients with-
in the new wing. Where they had
been divided by pay-roll in the section |
they were leaving, they were to be
grouped according to illness in the}
one they were entering. |

As a result, only parts of sections
could be moved at one time. Nurses
were required to be on hand in both
the new and old quarters.

Planning for the move, which had |
been in progress for several weeks,
went into effect Monday afternoon
when all the patients then in the hos-
pital were assigned beds in the new |
quarters.

When Tuesday morning arrived,
they were carried in stretchers, mov-
ed in wheel-chairs or walked
according to the nature of their ill-,
ness — to the beds assigned in the
new wing. Moved along with them
was medical equipment required for
their care.

The shift was planned so that the
patients woula not miss any medi-





cinal applications nor mid-meal
nourishment. Patients entering the
hospital Tuesday were assigned

directly to beds in the new quarters.

LEC Constituents
Vote on Preferred

Work Week Hours

Whether or not constituents of the
Lago Employee Council who work a
48-hour week will continue to main-
tain this schedule or drop back to a
shorter work week has been decided.
As the E News went to press the
constituents had voted indicating
their preference; the ballots are being
and the result will be an-





The voting on the length of the
work week resulted when Work Regu-
lation 1952, promulgated by the Sta-
ten, set the maximum number of
working hours in one week at 45, The
regulation, however, provides for
exemptions in continuous operations
such as Lago, the Government water
works and others. The recent ballot-
ing will inform the Company whether
or not the majority of LEC consti-
tuents want the exemption.

Following the promulgation of the
regulation, the Company informed the
LEC that it would not continue pre-
sent wages for a 45-hour work week.
The Company told members of the
Council that it would start exemption
proceedings if so requested by the
constituents.

The ballots clearly put the decision
up to each 48-hour constituent of the
LEC. The two selections on the ballot
were:

1. Iam in favor of keeping the 48-
hour work week schedule.

2. I am in favor of reducing the
48-hour work week schedule to a 44.8-
hour work week schedule. I under-
stand this would involve a correspond-
ing reduction in pay of approximately
6%4 percent.

Gold Mines May Reopen

Arubans Plan Corporation
To Put Up Plant, Buy Ore

From Unemployed Islanders

Aruba’s economy, so dependent vpon oil, may get a shot in the arm

from gold. Attempts are being made to revive the island’s gold mining |

industry.

A group of men hopes to form a corporation, set up a plant and}

process gold ore. They plan to buy the ore from men, now unemployed,

who would work Aruba’s gold fields as independent producers.

into the hands of a group of Aruba
merchants who had formed a corpo-
ration at the suggestion of Cornelius
Eman.

”For 40,000 guilders, they bought
a plant worth $1,000,000,” Henny
Eman, son of the man who spark-
plugged the merchants’ group, ex-
plained. By operating only the plant
and buying the ore from "tribodors”

Mateas and Andreas Erasmus, two
brothers who live near Crystal
Mountain, had mined gold in Aruba
for years. They knew where the gold
was, how to get it out.

But like hundreds of other Arubans
who had pecked at the soil for years,
they had been handcuffed by a lack
of money to buy a machine to grind

As the larger pieces moved to the
rim of the shovel, he scooped them |
out, leaving a gray, thin mud in the
cup of the shovel.

Finally he looked up and pointed

of the shovel. There, glinting in the
| bright morning sun-light, were some |
| 30 flecks of gold.

Gold In Aruba

"You see, there is still gold in|
| Aruba!” Mr. Eman exclaimed. |
Back at their home near Crystal
Mountain, the brothers showed how |
|they extracted the fle of gold
|from the ore with which they were
| still mixed. Into an earthenware bowl
| they poured quick-silver and the gold |
flaked ore.

The quick-silver, or mercury, at-
tracted the gold much as a magnet |
attracts iron. The quick-silver was
then poured through a cloth into
another bowl. The cloth strained the |
gold from the mercury.

Speaking in Papiamento, the bro- |
thers explained that when they had|
strained out a quantity of gold, they |
furtheer purified it by burning off |
— in a retort — the thin coating of
mereury around each flake of gold.

E. A. de Cuba, who is i as
a representative of Lt. Gov. oats
C. Kwartz in the plans to reopen
the industry, said, "They lose about |
50 percent of the gold, mining it this
way. They can’t pound the ore fine
enough to free all the gold. One of
the things we need most is a grin- |



a









fine as flour’. |
| |
|

Grinder, Laboratory Needed

Also needed, he said, was a labo-
ratory at which ore samples could be
assayed to pinpoint the most profi- |
| table diggings. |

"If we can find ore that will yield

4 \two ounces of gold a ton it will be}

| profitable to go into operation”, he
said. Ore bearing up to 15 ounces of
gold a ton has been mined in Aruba.

"We can go into business,” Mr.





~*|Eman explained, "but it must be on

a small scale. The veins are too
narrow for big operatio ” He
pointed out that numerous companies,
which have studied the field with an
eye to reopening the industry, declined
because of the operation limitations.

In Cologne last September, Mr.
Eman d, a manufacturer of gold
mining equipment told him he could
provide a crusher, a cyanide sep:

In order to raise the money to

"We should be able to provide
work for 500 to 600 persons,” Mr.
Eman explained. "Some would work
in the concession, some would work
in the plant while others would work |
carrying the ore from the conces
to the plant.”

He estimated that a man could ship
200 to 300 pounds of ore each day
to the plant which would have a
daily capacity of 50 to 60 tons of ore.

"No one would get rich” Mr. Eman |
said, "but it would mean work for |

With gold selling on the world
market of about Fls. 66.50 per fine
ounce, it is estimated a "tribudor’” |
who could turn out a daily average |
of 250 pounds of two-ounce ore, could |
gross about Fis. 16 per day. |

If England is successful in its
plan to double the world market price
of gold, the proposed revival of the
industry would take on added signi-
ficance for Aruba.

According to Mr. Eman, dozens of
Arubans have for years eked out |
part of their living from the island’s
gold. Some have worked the pits in
the simple manner demonstrated by |
the Erasmus brothers.

Gold Still Found

Others have spent their time wal-
king over the area in the hope of
spotting nuggets on the ground. In
the corner of a hankerchief Mateas
has tied 10 to 15 pieces of gold, each
about the size of a small fingernail,
which he has picked up in his wan-
derings. ;

Still others have panned” for gold,
washing the gold-bearing sand by
the same method used years ago in
the western part of the United







Mr. de Cuba is developing a fourth
method of mining gold. From plans
supplied by a California concern, he
has built what he calls a "doodle-
bug;” a small placer mining machine.

Into a hopper go sands from such
areas as the slopes of Matividiri
Mountain and the land around Santa
Lucia. A pipe sprays the sand with
water and washes f the gravel.

The water, carrying the sand,
passes through a grid at the bottom
of the hopper while the gravel is
caught in a chute and discarded. The
water and sand fall into a drum
where the larger pieces of sand are
once again screened out and discard-

Cloth Holds Gold

particles, passes down and through
a riffle box whose screen is a fine-
meshed cloth. Only the finest of the

possible adjunct to the hardrock
operations in the concession.

None of the men interested in
reviving the industry expect the
fabulous finds of the past — 20 and
30 pound pieces of almost solid gold
— to be repeated.

But as Mr. Eman said, ”"What the
companies could not do on a large
scale, we hope to do on a small scale.

Mateas y Andreas Erasmus, dos ru-
man cu ta biba banda di Seroe Plat,
a coba oro durante hopi tempo na
Aruba. Nan sabi unda e oro ta, y
com mester haci pa haye.







Sistema Actual ta di Tempo Bieuw

For di un mina bandona banda di
e mina mayor na Bushiribana, e ru-
mannan a coba mas of menos dos
liber di kwarts.

Mientras Mateas a bai na un otro
mina pa busca mas kwarts, Andreas
a cai sinta y a pone un wea frusto

| entre su rudia. Den e wea el a basha

e mineral, despues el a garne cu
punta di un piek. E mineral garna
el a basha den un shovel.

For di un bleki cu Mateas a yena
na un poos ey banda, Andreas a
basha awa ariba e material den e
shovel. Despues ta sigui e trabao la-
borioso pa laba e oro, Sagudiendo e
wea poco poco, Andreas tabata hala
e pidanan mas grandi pa e otro ban-
da di e shovel y seca nan.

Agregando awa, el tabata sigui
sagudi e pidanan mas fini. Mientras
e pidanan mas grandi a move bai na

afor, lagando un lodo shinishi fini
den e shovel.

Despues di pone mas awa acerca,
el ta sigui move e mezcla bai bini.
Mientras e lodo tabata move, An-

”Ainda Tin Oro Na Aruba”

Por fin el a lamta su cara waak y
a munstra e lugar unda cabo di e
shovel ta forma un depresion dren-
tando planta di e shovel. Aya, tabatin
un trinta pidacito masha chikito di
oro ta blink den solo di mainta.

"Bo ta mira, ainda tin oro
Aruba!” Sr. Eman a exclama.

Atrobe na nan cas na Seroe Plat,
€ rumannan a munstra com nan ta
saca e pida oronan for di e mineral
cu ainda nan tabata bruha cu ne. Nan
a basha e mineral di oro y un poco
kwikzilver den un komchi ceramico.

E kwikzilver, of kwik, a atrae e
oro mescos cu un magneet ta atrae
hero. Despues e kwikzilver a worde
basha den un otro komchi door di un
panja. E panja ta kita e oro for di
e kwik.

Papiando na Papiamento, e ruman-
nan a splica cu ora nan saca un
cierto cantidad di oro afor, nan ta
purifike’le kimando e kwikzilver afor
den un retort.

E. A. de Cuba, kende ta sirbi co-
mo un representante di Gezaghebber
L. C. Kwartsz den plannan pa bolbe

ta perde como 50 por ciento di e oro, |
trahando na e manera aki. Nan no}
por garna e mineral bastante fini pa
saca tur e oro afor. Un di e cosnan
cu nos mester mas urgentemente ta
un grinder pa haci e mineral mas
fini cu harinja.”

Mester di Un Grinder y Laboratorio

Tambe un necesidad, el a bisa, ta-!
bata un laboratorio unda muestranan
di oro por worde examina pa fiha e)
cobamentonan di mas valor.

"Si nos por haya mineral cu por
produci dos ons di oro pa ton, anto
ya ta combini pa cuminza opera”,
el a bisa. Mineral produciendo te 15
ons pa ton a yega di worde coba na
Aruba.

"Nos por cuminza traha”, Sr.
Eman a splica, ”pero mester ta ariba
un escala chikito. E addernan ta)
mucho smal pa operacionnan grandi”.
El a splica cu cantidad di compania,
cu a studia e posibilidad pa bolbe cu-
minza cu e industria, a laga e asun-
to para pa motibo di e limitacionnan |
di trahamento.

Mientras el tabata na Cologna anja |
pasa na September, Sr. Eman a bisa,
un fabricador di hermentnan di coba
mina di oro a priminti cu el por tra-
ha un garnador, separador di cyanide
y un laboratorio pa mas of menos
$100,000.”

Pa obtene e suma pa cumpra e her-
mentnan y pa otro investacion, e gru-
po ta pensa di bende acciones den un
corporacion cu lo tuma e concesion
over — awor ta gobierno tin e con-
cesion — y establece un planta pa
garna e mineral, saca e oro y ben-
de’le.

E grupo ta pensa tambe pa presta |
placa cerca gobierno. |



"Mi ta segur cu, cu metodonan moderno, lo ta posible ariba un escala
chikito”, asina Gezaghebber Kwartsz a declara tocante e plan pa rebiba
industria di oro na Aruba. El a agrega cu Bestuurscollege di Aruba a

priminti un prestamo pa yuda habri

e minanan atrobe "si e muestranan

di mineral proba di ta bastante valioso.”

Empleo pa Hende Sin Trabao

Arubianonan cu no por haya otro
trabao, lo coba e mineral den e con-
cesion. Despues esaki lo worde exa-
mina den un laboratorio y e corpora-
cion lo cumpra e mineral for di e mi-
nero cu ta traha como productor in-
dependiente.

"Nos lo mester por duna trabao na
500 te 600 persona,” Sr. Eman a
splica. ’Algun lo traha den e conce-
sion, algun lo traha den planta mien-
tras otro lo traha treciendo e mine-
ral pa e planta.”

El a caleula cu un homber por
manda 200 te 300 liber di mineral tur
dia pa e planta, cual lo tin un capa-
cidad diario di 50 te 60 ton.

”Ningun hende lo bira rico”, Sr.
Eman a bisa, ’pero hopi hende cu
awendia no tin trabao lo haya algo
di gana.”

Oro ta worde bendi actualmente na

cula cu un tribudor cu por entrega

Si Inglaterra logra redobla e prijs

cual el a haya ora el tabata camna.

Otro a usa un sistema diferente,
labando e santo di oro den casi mes
manera cu nan tabata usa hopi tem-
po pas4 den parti west di Estados

Sr. de Cuba ta desaroyando un
cuatro manera di traha cu e oro. For
di plannan duna door di un empresa
na California, el a traha loke el ta
yama un wichelroede, un aparato
chikito di mina.

Den un hopper nan ta hinca santo
di lugarnan manera na Seroe Mati-

cia. Un pipa ta spuit e santo cu awa
y ta laba e mineral.

E awa, hibando e santo, ta pasa
door di un git den bom di e hopper
|mientras e pida piedranan ta worde

E awa y santo ta cai den un drum
unda e pidanan di santo mas grandi

E awa, hibando e partinan mas

Twenty-three -old Bill Bruton
of the Milwav Braves is off to
an impressive start in his bid to be-
come a major-league regular. The
youthful rookie practically won the
first two games for the Braves.
the league opener in Cincinnati, the
young outfielder drove in the win-
ning runs and made near-impossible
catches in the field. When the Braves
opened in Milwaukee the next dz
Bruton continued his sterling play.
He tied the ball game with a triple
and won it in the 10th inning with a
home run.

When the Braves opened against
the St. Louis Cardinals in Milwaukee,

Johnny Lindell, ex-New York out- |

pitcher. Although Lindell allowed |
only eight hits, his wildness hurt him |
as the Dodgers went on to defeat the
Pirates 4—2. The Pirates’ only score
came on Lindell’s homer with one
aboard. Because of his hitting ability,
Manager Haney plans to use Lindell
higher in the batting order, vacating
the usual ninth spot reserved for
pitchers.

Connie Ryan, 32-year-old Phillies’

OUT OF THIS WORLD: Looking like men from out of this world,
these members of the "concrete gang” of the Mechanical Department
are busy putting in a new base for the No. 7 turbo-generator in the
No. 1 Powerhouse. Working inches above sea-level, they’re wearing
fresh air masks to guard against hydrogen sulfide which seeps through
the coral strong enough to discolor the coins in their pockets. The new
General Electric turbo-generator will produce 7500 kilowatts; some
3500 more than the old No. 7 which "went bad” in January of 1952.
The new unit is expected to go into operation early next year.

S & R Vacation Policy
Changes Reexplained

Because of some confusion in the
current ition policy for Staff and
Regular employees, the Lago Em-
ployee Council reissued this week an
explanation of policy changes which








went into effect early this year.
Under the pol revision, S&R
employees who resign or are dis-

charged after six or more months of
service will be given — in place of
vacation — one day’s pay for each
month worked since the start of
their last holiday, or since their date
of employment, whichever is later.

The vacation policy for employees
whose service ends for involuntary
| reasons — lay-off, retirement, medi-
; cal, ete. — remains unchanged.

so you had better put on your new
clothes.”

| Yes, very true, he must go to the
funeral. And she helped him on with
{his new suit, for it was so fine, he
|might tear it asunder if he put it
on alone.

So when he came up to the farm,
where the funeral was to be, they
had all drank hard and long, and
| you may fancy their grief was not
| greater when they saw him come in
his new suit. But when the train set
|off for the churchyard, and the dead
oan peeped through the breathing
holes, he burst out into a loud fit of
laughter. "Nay, nay!” he said, "I
can’t help laughing, though it is my
funeral, for if there isn’t Olof South-
grange walking to my funeral in his
shirt tails, without a shred of a
suit.”
| When the bearers heard that, they
were not slow in taking the lid off
the coffin. And the other husband,
he in the new suit, asked how it was
that this man, over whom they had
just drank funeral ale, lay there in
his coffin and chatted and laughed,
when it would be more seemly if he
wept.

"Ah!” said Farmer Northgrange,
"you know tears never yet dug up
anyone out of his grave - that’s why
I laughed myself to life again.”

But the end of all their talk was
that it came out that their goodies
had played them those tricks. So the
sbands went home and did the
st thing either of them had done
1 long time; and if anyone wishes
to know what it was, he had better
go and ask the birch cudgel.
