Lago Workers 7000 See Lights Inaugurated As Sport Park

Vote To Keep Marks Queen's Birthday With 13th Olympiad
48-Hour Week

Over 1800 Lago employees who
work 48 hours a week h voted
to leave the work week unchanged.
Onl voted to drop down to 44.8
hours a week.

At better tian 48-to-1, Lago Em-
ployee Council constituents indicated
in an LEC referendum that they
preferred the existing work week
rather than the 45-hour maximum
set up in a Work Regulation adopted
last year by the Central Government.

The Work Regulation has not yet
gone into effect.

On ballots distributed by the LEC,
the 48-hour workers were asked to |
vote:

1. I am in favor of keeping the
48-hour work week — or — |
2. I am in favor of reducing the
48-hour work week scheduled to a
44.8 hour work week schedule. I un-
derstand this would involve a corre
ponding reduction in pay of approxi-

mately 614 percent.

Lago Thanks Creole For Seeking Lost Fliers

Lago sent thanks this week to
the Creole Petroleum Corporation
for its help in searching for five
Lago employees who disappeared
in March on a flight from British
Guiana to Aruba.

We shall appreciate it also if you will
convey appropriate thanks to the
Venezuelan Government and to all



those who had a part in the search.”

At Lago’s request, Creole employ-

2 Freighters, Tug

Hail San Nicolas
As Welcome Port

San Nicolas proved to be a welcome
harbor for two freighters and a tug
which broke down off the coast of
Aruba April 25. One was the Moore-
McCormack Line "Mormac Swan.”
the second was the Dominican ship
the "18th of December,” the third
was the Lago tug "Colorado Point.”
The "Mormae Swan,” bound from
the United States for Brazil, arrived
off the west entrance to the harbor
the morning of the 25th and was
taking a pilot aboard when her
motive power f.





od.

The ship drifted
miles off Oranjestad before attempts
| to repair the break-down were aban-
|doned. A Lago tug, the ”Colorado

to a point five

Point,” was sent to tow the ’"Mormac
Swan” into the harbor.

But while enroute to the ship which
was riding at anchor, the Colorado
Point” suffered a partial engine
breakdown and had to put about.
Repaired, the ’Point’” set out once
again and towed the freighter in.
Moore-McCormack flew in repair
parts from the United States.

The 18th of December” also made
San Nicolas harbor the morning of
the 25th, but not under her own po-
wer. The United States Naval Ship
”"Nodoway” found her adrift about
ie miles off the north coast of Aru-
| ba.

The ’’December’s” engines had
broken down and the ship was leak-
jing. The "”Nodoway,” bound for
Aruba for a load of petroleum pro-
| ducts for the Navy, took the Domi-
nican vessel in tow and brought her
into San Nicolas harbor to be re-
paired in Lago’s yards.

She sailed April 28 to complete her
vovage to Curacao.

When the Yankees made their trek

Woodling spoke to a bat salesman
from Hillerich & Bradsby, bat manu-

shorter bat on the chance ihat the |

| Ingenious ‘Right-of-Way’ Men

| In the wake of surveyors, engineers
and installation crews, the United
|States is criss-crossed today by |
| 160,000 miles of petroleum pipelines. |
| These experts — with an assist from
| right-of-way’ men — completed a re- |
|cord-breaking construction program |
during 1952.

The current issue of The Lamp, |
publication of Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey), tells the story of these
‘right-of-way’ men whose job it is to
get permission from land-owners to
lay a pipeline acress their property.

Unlike the construction experts
who have swarms of men, mammoth
machines and the problem of dealing
with land and pipe, the ’right-of-way’
man is all alone, has only his own
ingenuity, and must deal with people.

The Lamp tells of one right-of-way
man who approached a newly-married
couple in their ’rose-covered cottage’
for permission to put a line under









their new lawn and brillant flower
beds.
While winning permission, he

| learned the woman expected a baby
}and was so confident it would be a
boy she planned to give him a
puppy,” and pointed to a brand new
| dog house near the white picket fence
which enclosed the yard.

Line Approaches



Day after day the couple watched
as the line neared their land until
one morning the crews were at their
gate. Down went the gleaming fence

the boil or a case of stubbornness the

right-of-way man slipped into the
nearest town and returned with a
medicine for boils. The property-
owner was so impressed he said

“okay” before even trying the reme-
dy.

Invisible

Pipelines, for the most part, lie in-
visible and noiseless under the
ground, often forgotten by the per-
sons whose land they cross. They
carry crude oil and refined products,
such as gasoline and natural gas,
east and north into New England and
across the Rocky Mountains to the
Pacifie Coast.

Right-of-way men seek right-of-way
contracts or ’easements’ which grant
their companies permission to lay the
lines while allowing the land-owner
full use of his property. Some 95
percent of the land-owners approach-
ed readily sign the agreements.

Against those who steadfastly re-
fuse, pipeline firms have the right
— as common carriers — to seek a
court order granting permission
while establishing just compensation.
This privilege is exercised rarely and
| reluctantly and only after all nego-
tiations have failed.

The pipeline firms rely on the
’right-of-w: men who sometimes
have to repair flower beds or cure
boils, but who almost always delivers
the goods.

Lago Workers 7000 See Lights Inaugurated As Sport Park

Vote To Keep Marks Queen's Birthday With 13th Olympiad
48-Hour Week

Over 1800 Lago employees who
work 48 hours a week h voted
to leave the work week unchanged.
Onl voted to drop down to 44.8
hours a week.

At better tian 48-to-1, Lago Em-
ployee Council constituents indicated
in an LEC referendum that they
preferred the existing work week
rather than the 45-hour maximum
set up in a Work Regulation adopted
last year by the Central Government.

The Work Regulation has not yet
gone into effect.

On ballots distributed by the LEC,
the 48-hour workers were asked to |
vote:

1. I am in favor of keeping the
48-hour work week — or — |
2. I am in favor of reducing the
48-hour work week scheduled to a
44.8 hour work week schedule. I un-
derstand this would involve a corre
ponding reduction in pay of approxi-

mately 614 percent.

Lago Thanks Creole For Seeking Lost Fliers

Lago sent thanks this week to
the Creole Petroleum Corporation
for its help in searching for five
Lago employees who disappeared
in March on a flight from British
Guiana to Aruba.

In a letter to A. T. Proudfit, pre-
sident of Creole, Lago President J. J.
Horigan said, "We in
indeed grateful for the quick actions,
complete repo1ts and wonderful coo-



Lago are all









peration received from the Creole
Petroleum Corporation with the
search for five Lago employees lost
in the airplane PJ-AMM.

"We are also grateful for the
generous assistance given by the
Venezuelan authorities.

"It is plain that all possible was
done, and that the unfortunate lack
of success was not through lack of |
effort. Here, you may feel sure that |
your efforts on this sad occasion have |
been fruitful in bringing the people
of Venezuela and Aruba closer |
together in bonds of sympathy and |

understanding
accept our heartfelt thanks.




We shall appreciate it also if you will
convey appropriate thanks to the
Venezuelan Government and to all



those who had a part in the search.”

At Lago’s request, Creole employ-
ees and members of the Venezuelan |
National Guard conducted an air
land search for the men who
appeared March 23.

2 Freighters, Tug

Hail San Nicolas
As Welcome Port

San Nicolas proved to be a welcome
harbor for two freighters and a tug
which broke down off the coast of
Aruba April 25. One was the Moore-
McCormack Line "Mormac Swan.”
the second was the Dominican ship
the "18th of December,” the third
was the Lago tug "Colorado Point.”
The "Mormae Swan,” bound from
the United States for Brazil, arrived
off the west entrance to the harbor
the morning of the 25th and was
taking a pilot aboard when her
motive power f.





od.

The ship drifted
miles off Oranjestad before attempts
| to repair the break-down were aban-
|doned. A Lago tug, the ”Colorado

to a point five

Point,” was sent to tow the ’"Mormac
Swan” into the harbor.

But while enroute to the ship which
was riding at anchor, the Colorado
Point” suffered a partial engine
breakdown and had to put about.
Repaired, the ’Point’” set out once
again and towed the freighter in.
Moore-McCormack flew in repair
parts from the United States.

The 18th of December” also made
San Nicolas harbor the morning of
the 25th, but not under her own po-
wer. The United States Naval Ship
”"Nodoway” found her adrift about
ie miles off the north coast of Aru-
| ba.

The ’’December’s” engines had
broken down and the ship was leak-
jing. The "”Nodoway,” bound for
Aruba for a load of petroleum pro-
| ducts for the Navy, took the Domi-
nican vessel in tow and brought her
into San Nicolas harbor to be re-
paired in Lago’s yards.

She sailed April 28 to complete her
vovage to Curacao.

When the Yankees made their trek

Woodling spoke to a bat salesman

shorter bat on the chance ihat the |

| Ingenious ‘Right-of-Way’ Men

| In the wake of surveyors, engineers
and installation crews, the United
|States is criss-crossed today by |
| 160,000 miles of petroleum pipelines. |
| These experts — with an assist from
| right-of-way’ men — completed a re- |
|cord-breaking construction program |
during 1952.

The current issue of The Lamp, |
publication of Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey), tells the story of these
‘right-of-way’ men whose job it is to
get permission from land-owners to
lay a pipeline acress their property.

Unlike the construction experts
who have swarms of men, mammoth
machines and the problem of dealing
with land and pipe, the ’right-of-way’
man is all alone, has only his own
ingenuity, and must deal with people.

The Lamp tells of one right-of-way
man who approached a newly-married
couple in their ’rose-covered cottage’
for permission to put a line under









their new lawn and brillant flower
beds.
While winning permission, he

| learned the woman expected a baby
}and was so confident it would be a
boy she planned to give him a
puppy,” and pointed to a brand new
| dog house near the white picket fence
which enclosed the yard.

Line Approaches



Day after day the couple watched
as the line neared their land until
one morning the crews were at their
gate. Down went the gleaming fence

the boil or a case of stubbornness the

right-of-way man slipped into the
nearest town and returned with a
medicine for boils. The property-
owner was so impressed he said

“okay” before even trying the reme-
dy.

Invisible

Pipelines, for the most part, lie in-
visible and noiseless under the
ground, often forgotten by the per-
sons whose land they cross. They
carry crude oil and refined products,
such as gasoline and natural gas,
east and north into New England and
across the Rocky Mountains to the
Pacifie Coast.

Right-of-way men seek right-of-way
contracts or ’easements’ which grant
their companies permission to lay the
lines while allowing the land-owner
full use of his property. Some 95
percent of the land-owners approach-
ed readily sign the agreements.

Against those who steadfastly re-
fuse, pipeline firms have the right
— as common carriers — to seek a
court order granting permission
while establishing just compensation.
This privilege is exercised rarely and
| reluctantly and only after all nego-
tiations have failed.

The pipeline firms rely on the
’right-of-w: men who sometimes
have to repair flower beds or cure
boils, but who almost always delivers
the goods.
