non-national candidates had assur-

tuents.

| The primary election, in which the
constituents will also be permitted

Primary New

The primary, held to nominate the
general election candidates, is a de-
parture from previous voting proce-
dures. It was authorized by an amend-
{ment to the LEC constitution which
{had stipulated that an 18-member
committee choose the candidates.
| When the council announced June
12 its intention to resign, it recom-
mended that the constitution be
amended to provide that a primary
election take the place of the nomina-
ting committee. The constitution was
changed after Lago agreed to the re-
} commendation.
| Would-be candidates started June
15 circulating petitions. The petitions,
| provided by Lago’s Industrial Rela-
tions Department, announced the can-
didacy of the petitioner. Those sig-
ning the petition indicated they sup-
parted the petitioner.

When the petitioners secured the
signatures of 100 constituents, they
returned the petitions to the IR Dept.
!which checked the validity of the
by comparing them with
Lago files, Would-be candidates had
until June 30 to return their peti-
tions.

Voting in both the primary and
general elections will be conducted by

will be permitted to vote for a maxi-
mum of 10 national candidates; non-
national employees will be permitted

J . ,
Of Which Dreams Are Made
Youth is traditionally unafraid of the future. It faces the years |

ahead unmindful of the ’’slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.”
It feels the time to come will be full of good things, good times, a





good life. |
So it was with the 214 young Aruba men who tried last week for
a stake in the future — a chance to attend Lago’s Vocational

School. As they marked their examination papers their enthusiasm,
coupled with their inexperience, doubtless ruled out any chance of |
failure.

It is too bad the world with which they must contend will strip
them of the ‘rose-colored glasses’ through which they view the years |
ahead. |

But in the stripping the world performs a valuable service. It |



paints life in reality — colors it with joy, shades it with sorrow.
This these boys will learn with profit, but not for sonie time. |
In the meantime — right or wrong — they'll be enthusiastic

about the future. What man can look back to the days of his |
youth and say they are wrong? Who knows but what their dreams |
will come true!

Youthful enthusiasm keeps the world turning and is the stuff of
which dreams are made.

‘Di Cual Sonjonan Ta Traha

Tradicionalmente juventud no tin miedo pa futuro. E ta enfrenta
e anjanan venidero sin paga tino na e "'dificultadnan di bida”’. E ta
sinti cu e tempo cu ta bini lo ta yen di bon cosnan, bon tempo, un
bon bida.

Asina tabata cu e 214 mucha hombernan di Aruba cu siman pasa |
a purba tuma un paso den futuro — un oportunidad pa atende |
School di Ofishi di Lago. Mientras nan tabata marca nan papelnan |
di examinacion nan entusiasmo, hunto cu nan inexperiencia, sin duda
tabata exclui cualkier chens pa fracasa.

Ta hopi duro cu e mundo cu cual nan resisti lo mester kita e tanto
ilusion cu nan tabata waak e anjanan venidero, for dilanti nan vista.

Pero door di esaki mundo ta haci un servicio valioso. E ta pinta
mundo den su realidad — den color cla cu alegria, y den color scur
cu disilusion. E muchanan lo sinja esaki na nan ventaha, pero no

awor mes ora. |
Mientras tanto — bon of malo — nan lo tin entusiasmo pa futuro.
Cual homber por waak atras ariba dianan di su juventud y bisa cu
el no tabata enganja? Kende sabi cu podiser nan sonjo lo bira rea-
lidad ainda.
Entusiasmo di juventud ta sigui manda mundo y ta e material di
cual sonjonan ta traha.

In developing its fire protection
program, Lago plans this year to}
spend Fls. 188,400 with Aruba con-
tractors for the construction of addi-
tional tank farm firewalls.

In contracts let for completion
during 1953, the company authorized
the construction of 5000 feet of rein-
forced concrete walls and 3400 feet
of concrete-block wall.

The walls, ranging in height from
three to 15 feet, are designed to
isolate tanks groups of tanks.
The wall dimensions are determined
by their use and the contents plus
capacity of the tanks they guard.

Some walls are designed primari
to check the flow of oil if the
springs a leak. Othe designed
to prevent the spread of fire and of |
flaming oil. They are made of con-
crete block
anchored in coral.

Main Electric Shop employees are currently using a leak detector so sen-

Made by General Electric, the device comes in two parts a box-shaped
control unit and the detector which resembles Buck Rogers’ trusty

atomizer.

) sensitive it cannot be used on larger refrigeration systems.

General Electric explains that the unit, which reacts to freon and other |

halogen compound vapors, works in this manner.

In the detector is a blower which draws in the escaping gas. When the
gas reaches the control unit its presence is recorded on a meter as an
electrical current increase. Detector operators may also use earphones in
which the presence of escaping gas is indicated by a change in pitch of a
note transmitted by the control unit.

Operators check for leaks by tracing the course of the piping with the
tip of the gun-like detector.

1200 Vessels
Reconditioned

In That Time

Wet and glistening in the morn-
ing sun, its red decks streaming
water, the dry-dock cradle emerges
from San Nicolas harbor holding
in its arms of fir and oak another
ship.

Into the gleaming, aluminum
painted engine house at the head
of the dry dock slip disappears the
heavy chain by which the chuffing
steam engine draws the cradle on
its hundreds of rollers up the steel ©
track. ‘

Along the catwalk which rims the
eradle husky dry-dock men, working
in pairs, crank quickly at the chains

which move the keel and bilge blocks ¥

into a hull-gripping fit,

The ship, no longer ’gliding oa gy

the swell’ but caught and held, comes
out of the sea and onto the shore
The hot tropic sun soon dries the last
traces of water from her sides.

Close to 500 machinists, electri-
cians, boiler-makers and other Ship- §
yard craftsmen swarm aboard. For
almost two weeks the ship echoes to
the pound of the hammer, the whine
of the drill, the spit of the welder’s
torch. From the shipyard shops come
the sounds of building and repairing.

Then come the painters and with
the rollers which have replaced their
traditional brushes give a new lustre
to the reconditioned ship. The signal
sounds, the hauling engine is reversed
and brakes the cradle as it rolls back
into the sea.

As the sweating teams reverse the
cranks, the blocks are drawn away
from the hull and the ship rides
free, headed for the familiar sea lanes
of the Aruba-Maracaibo run.



25th Anniversary

Nineteen-fifty-three is the 25th
anniversary of the dry-dock. In the
past quarter century the events re-
lated here took place over 1200 times
as Lago maintained its Lake Tanker
Fleet which carries Venezuelan crude
oil to the refinery.

Known technically as a marine
railway, the dry-dock is the most im-
portant piece of equipment in the
Shipyard. Its history is linked with
Lago’s development and mirrors its
adjustment to changing conditions.

The story of the drydock revolves
around four dates — its design in
1927, building in 1928, enlargement in
1937 and track renewal in 1945. Ori-
ginally planned to haul a maximum
load of 1900 tons to cover the 1750
tons light ship weight of the ”Inver”
elass lake tankers, the proposal to
build three "Tamare” class lake tan-
kers of approximately 1950 tons
necessitated changes in the design,
and though construction of the cradle
had already begun, revisions were
made to increase its capacity to 2100
tons.

Railway Built

Construction of the Marine Railway
was started in 1928 and completed
by the end of that year. On January
3, 1929, the first ship to be hauled
out of the water on the new cradle
was the S.S. Francunion, owned by
Lago Shipping Company, Ltd. and
managed by Messrs. Andrew Weir &
Company of London, whose superin-
tendent in Aruba at that time was the
late, well-remembered Captain Ro-
bert Rodger.

The ”Francunion,”’ which commen-
eed operations between Lake Mara-
eaibo and Aruba in November 1924
and was towed back to England in
1934, is doing service today bunker-
ing large passenger vessels at
Southampton with Esso products,

The docking of the ”Francunion,”
ef only some 550 tons, was primarily
a first test run and on completion of

Lagunilla of 1750 tons in weight]
plus 600 tons of water ballast was |
hauled up on a full test load of 2350
tons. |
Cradle Enlarged Again |
The test proved successful and
docking of vessels began in earnest.
It continued until September, 1937,
when a second enlarging of the cradle)
commenced. During this period 438)
vessels of various types were docked
at an average of 50 per year.

In 1937 the proposal to deepen the
channels into Lake Maracaibo allow-
ed the building of still larger lake
tankers. To accomodate these new
customers” the cradle was lengthen-
ed, widened and strengthened to
handle loads up to 2400 tons.

This enlargement, which necessi-
tated the relocation of the hauling
engine and house, was accomplished
between mid-September and _ mid-
December of 1937 by Lago forces
with technical assistance from the
designers. On December 17, 1937, the
S.S. Cumarebo, weighing close to the
capacity load of 2400 tons, was haul-
ed out of the water to commence
a new era in the life of the Shipyard.

Track Renewed |

In 1945, examination revealed that
the under-water sections of the track |
had reached an advanced stage of de-
terioration and the entire track was
renewed toward the end of that year.
Once again, on December 1, 1945, the
”Cumarebo” was docked in a capa- |
city test and operations have conti-|
nued since that time with a bi-annual |
overhaul. The 1000 mark = v
reached with the docking of the S.S.
Temblador in July, 1949.

The Marine Railway, which was)
designed by and built under the di-
rection of the Crandall Dry Dock
Engineers of Boston, Massachussetts,
consists of two main sections; the
cradle, upon which the ship is hauled
up out of the water and the track
upon which the cradle moves.

The cradle, 345 feet long and 65
feet wide, is of composite construc- |
tion of steel and wood, the main base
being of steel, the heavy cross beams
of Douglas fir, the keel
blocks of oak and the side posts, cat-
walk, flooring, etc.,, of pine. The
steel base was fabricated in Belgium
and transported to Aruba in sections

for re-assembiy.

|each w

| section was built on the

The heavy beams of fir with a, pulle y

cross-sectional size of 16” x 14” are
attached to the steel base; upon
these beams are secured the center
keel blocks and mounted on runners
also attached to the beams are the
moveable bilge blocks which are
operated by chains and cranks at-
tached to the side posts at intervals
of 12 feet along each side
cradle.







Blocks Hold Ship

When docking a vessel these bilge
blocks are moved inward to conform
to the hull shape and to give neces-
sary support along the full length
of the vessel. On undocking, when the
vessel has regained its own bouyancy,
these bilge blocks moved out
again by the chains and cranks to
prevent damage to the ship and the
cradle.

As so much wood is used in the
construction of the cradle, it is
weighed down with heavy ballast to
prevent its floating from the track
when lowered into the water prior to
docking a ship.

The track upon which the cradle
moves consists of a center and two
side ways which slope from the shore

the designers.

One of the most interesting
pects of the Marine Railv is the
cradle’s movement. The cradle struct-
ure rests on hundreds of steel rollers
which in turn rest on the three track
ways. It moves much as a heavy box

has an effective pulling strength of |
| close to 4000 horse-power. |

There it is connected to two 11/8”
diameter backing chains which extend |
to the outer end of the track, around |
|two pulleys secured there, and back
up the track to the under side of the |
cradle.

There, in conjunction with a series |

Timing Is Critical

The dry-docking of any vessel re-
quires split-second timing, for the
period between the instant when she
yancy and is fully
supported by the cradle is a critical
one.

Before a docking takes place, the
keel and bilge blocks are lined and
shaped to match the hull structure
of the vessel, the underwater
tions of the track are examined
by a diver for any obstructions and
the dock is lowered to its full extent
with approximately 12 feet of water
over the lower end and _ three-and-

non-national candidates had assur-

tions each signed by 100 or more
| national or non-national LEC consti-
tuents.

| The primary election, in which the
constituents will also be permitted
to ’write-in’ the names of their
| choices, will be held July 8, 9 and 10.
The 10 national and six non-national
candidates who receive the largest
number of votes will be nominated
for the general election slated for
July 15, 16 and 17.

Primary New

The primary, held to nominate the
general election candidates, is a de-
parture from previous voting proce-
dures. It was authorized by an amend-
{ment to the LEC constitution which
{had stipulated that an 18-member
committee choose the candidates.
| When the council announced June
12 its intention to resign, it recom-
mended that the constitution be
amended to provide that a primary
election take the place of the nomina-
ting committee. The constitution was
changed after Lago agreed to the re-
} commendation.
| Would-be candidates started June
15 circulating petitions. The petitions,
| provided by Lago’s Industrial Rela-
tions Department, announced the can-
didacy of the petitioner. Those sig-
ning the petition indicated they sup-
parted the petitioner.

When the petitioners secured the
signatures of 100 constituents, they
returned the petitions to the IR Dept.
!which checked the validity of the
by comparing them with
Lago files, Would-be candidates had
until June 30 to return their peti-
tions.

Voting in both the primary and
general elections will be conducted by
tellers who will take the ballots to
|the employees. National employees
will be permitted to vote for a maxi-
mum of 10 national candidates; non-
national employees will be permitted
|to vote for six non-national candi-

Of Which Dreams Are Made
Youth is traditionally unafraid of the future. It faces the years |

ahead unmindful of the ’’slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.”
It feels the time to come will be full of good things, good times, a





good life. |
So it was with the 214 young Aruba men who tried last week for
a stake in the future — a chance to attend Lago’s Vocational

School. As they marked their examination papers their enthusiasm,
coupled with their inexperience, doubtless ruled out any chance of |
failure.

It is too bad the world with which they must contend will strip
them of the ‘rose-colored glasses’ through which they view the years |
ahead. |

But in the stripping the world performs a valuable service. It |



paints life in reality — colors it with joy, shades it with sorrow.
This these boys will learn with profit, but not for sonie time. |
In the meantime — right or wrong — they'll be enthusiastic

about the future. What man can look back to the days of his |
youth and say they are wrong? Who knows but what their dreams |
will come true!

Youthful enthusiasm keeps the world turning and is the stuff of
which dreams are made.

‘Di Cual Sonjonan Ta Traha

Tradicionalmente juventud no tin miedo pa futuro. E ta enfrenta
e anjanan venidero sin paga tino na e "'dificultadnan di bida”’. E ta
sinti cu e tempo cu ta bini lo ta yen di bon cosnan, bon tempo, un
bon bida.

Asina tabata cu e 214 mucha hombernan di Aruba cu siman pasa |
a purba tuma un paso den futuro — un oportunidad pa atende |
School di Ofishi di Lago. Mientras nan tabata marca nan papelnan |
di examinacion nan entusiasmo, hunto cu nan inexperiencia, sin duda
tabata exclui cualkier chens pa fracasa.

Ta hopi duro cu e mundo cu cual nan resisti lo mester kita e tanto
ilusion cu nan tabata waak e anjanan venidero, for dilanti nan vista.

Pero door di esaki mundo ta haci un servicio valioso. E ta pinta
mundo den su realidad — den color cla cu alegria, y den color scur
cu disilusion. E muchanan lo sinja esaki na nan ventaha, pero no

awor mes ora. |
Mientras tanto — bon of malo — nan lo tin entusiasmo pa futuro.
Cual homber por waak atras ariba dianan di su juventud y bisa cu
el no tabata enganja? Kende sabi cu podiser nan sonjo lo bira rea-
lidad ainda.
Entusiasmo di juventud ta sigui manda mundo y ta e material di
cual sonjonan ta traha.

In developing its fire protection
program, Lago plans this year to}
spend Fls. 188,400 with Aruba con-
tractors for the construction of addi-
tional tank farm firewalls.

In contracts let for completion
during 1953, the company authorized
the construction of 5000 feet of rein-
forced concrete walls and 3400 feet
of concrete-block wall.

The walls, ranging in height from
three to 15 feet, are designed to
isolate tanks groups of tanks.
The wall dimensions are determined
by their use and the contents plus
capacity of the tanks they guard.

Some walls are designed primari
to check the flow of oil if the
springs a leak. Othe designed
to prevent the spread of fire and of |
flaming oil. They are made of con-
crete block
anchored in coral.

Main Electric Shop employees are currently using a leak detector so sen-

methane (nicknamed freon) from a refriger

Made by General Electric, the device comes in two parts a box-shaped
control unit and the detector which resembles Buck Rogers’ trusty

atomizer.

) sensitive it cannot be used on larger refrigeration systems.

General Electric explains that the unit, which reacts to freon and other |

halogen compound vapors, works in this manner.

In the detector is a blower which draws in the escaping gas. When the
gas reaches the control unit its presence is recorded on a meter as an
electrical current increase. Detector operators may also use earphones in
which the presence of escaping gas is indicated by a change in pitch of a
note transmitted by the control unit.

Operators check for leaks by tracing the course of the piping with the
tip of the gun-like detector.

"53 Is

1200 Vessels
Reconditioned

In That Time

Wet and glistening in the morn-
ing sun, its red decks streaming
water, the dry-dock cradle emerges
from San Nicolas harbor holding
in its arms of fir and oak another
ship.

Into the gleaming, aluminum
painted engine house at the head
of the dry dock slip disappears the
heavy chain by which the chuffing
steam engine draws the cradle on
its hundreds of rollers up the steel ©
track. ‘

Along the catwalk which rims the
eradle husky dry-dock men, working
in pairs, crank quickly at the chains

which move the keel and bilge blocks ¥

into a hull-gripping fit,

The ship, no longer ’gliding oa gy

the swell’ but caught and held, comes
out of the sea and onto the shore
The hot tropic sun soon dries the last
traces of water from her sides.

Close to 500 machinists, electri-
cians, boiler-makers and other Ship- §
yard craftsmen swarm aboard. For
almost two weeks the ship echoes to
the pound of the hammer, the whine
of the drill, the spit of the welder’s
torch. From the shipyard shops come
the sounds of building and repairing.

Then come the painters and with
the rollers which have replaced their
traditional brushes give a new lustre
to the reconditioned ship. The signal
sounds, the hauling engine is reversed
and brakes the cradle as it rolls back
into the sea.

As the sweating teams reverse the
cranks, the blocks are drawn away
from the hull and the ship rides
free, headed for the familiar sea lanes
of the Aruba-Maracaibo run.



25th Anniversary

Nineteen-fifty-three is the 25th
anniversary of the dry-dock. In the
past quarter century the events re-
lated here took place over 1200 times
as Lago maintained its Lake Tanker
Fleet which carries Venezuelan crude
oil to the refinery.

Known technically as a marine
railway, the dry-dock is the most im-
portant piece of equipment in the
Shipyard. Its history is linked with
Lago’s development and mirrors its
adjustment to changing conditions.

The story of the drydock revolves
around four dates — its design in
1927, building in 1928, enlargement in
1937 and track renewal in 1945. Ori-
ginally planned to haul a maximum
load of 1900 tons to cover the 1750
tons light ship weight of the ”Inver”
elass lake tankers, the proposal to
build three "Tamare” class lake tan-
kers of approximately 1950 tons
necessitated changes in the design,
and though construction of the cradle
had already begun, revisions were
made to increase its capacity to 2100
tons.

Railway Built

Construction of the Marine Railway
was started in 1928 and completed
by the end of that year. On January
3, 1929, the first ship to be hauled
out of the water on the new cradle
was the S.S. Francunion, owned by
Lago Shipping Company, Ltd. and
managed by Messrs. Andrew Weir &
Company of London, whose superin-
tendent in Aruba at that time was the
late, well-remembered Captain Ro-
bert Rodger.

The ”Francunion,”’ which commen-
eed operations between Lake Mara-
eaibo and Aruba in November 1924
and was towed back to England in
1934, is doing service today bunker-
ing large passenger vessels at
Southampton with Esso products,

The docking of the ”Francunion,”
ef only some 550 tons, was primarily
a first test run and on completion of

Lagunilla of 1750 tons in weight]
plus 600 tons of water ballast was |
hauled up on a full test load of 2350
tons. |
Cradle Enlarged Again |
The test proved successful and
docking of vessels began in earnest.
It continued until September, 1937,
when a second enlarging of the cradle)
commenced. During this period 438)
vessels of various types were docked
at an average of 50 per year.

In 1937 the proposal to deepen the
channels into Lake Maracaibo allow-
ed the building of still larger lake
tankers. To accomodate these new
customers” the cradle was lengthen-
ed, widened and strengthened to
handle loads up to 2400 tons.

This enlargement, which necessi-
tated the relocation of the hauling
engine and house, was accomplished
between mid-September and _ mid-
December of 1937 by Lago forces
with technical assistance from the
designers. On December 17, 1937, the
S.S. Cumarebo, weighing close to the
capacity load of 2400 tons, was haul-
ed out of the water to commence
a new era in the life of the Shipyard.

Track Renewed |

In 1945, examination revealed that
the under-water sections of the track |
had reached an advanced stage of de-
terioration and the entire track was
renewed toward the end of that year.
Once again, on December 1, 1945, the
”Cumarebo” was docked in a capa- |
city test and operations have conti-|
nued since that time with a bi-annual |
overhaul. The 1000 mark = v
reached with the docking of the S.S.
Temblador in July, 1949.

The Marine Railway, which was)
designed by and built under the di-
rection of the Crandall Dry Dock
Engineers of Boston, Massachussetts,
consists of two main sections; the
cradle, upon which the ship is hauled
up out of the water and the track
upon which the cradle moves.

The cradle, 345 feet long and 65
feet wide, is of composite construc- |
tion of steel and wood, the main base
being of steel, the heavy cross beams
of Douglas fir, the keel
blocks of oak and the side posts, cat-
walk, flooring, etc.,, of pine. The
steel base was fabricated in Belgium
and transported to Aruba in sections










her docking a few days later, the S.S.

for re-assembiy.

|each w

| section was built on the

The heavy beams of fir with a, pulle y

cross-sectional size of 16” x 14” are
attached to the steel base; upon
these beams are secured the center
keel blocks and mounted on runners
also attached to the beams are the
moveable bilge blocks which are
operated by chains and cranks at-
tached to the side posts at intervals
of 12 feet along each side
cradle.







Blocks Hold Ship

When docking a vessel these bilge
blocks are moved inward to conform
to the hull shape and to give neces-
sary support along the full length
of the vessel. On undocking, when the
vessel has regained its own bouyancy,
these bilge blocks moved out
again by the chains and cranks to
prevent damage to the ship and the
cradle.

As so much wood is used in the
construction of the cradle, it is
weighed down with heavy ballast to
prevent its floating from the track
when lowered into the water prior to
docking a ship.

The track upon which the cradle
moves consists of a center and two
side ways which slope from the shore

into the water for 605 feet. The un- |

THIS is the Shipyard’s Marine Railway made up of the cradle, in front of which the men are standing,
upon which the cradle moves are shown spanning each track while disappe aring down one side of the

In 1945 the new underwater

reef border
ing the South side of San Nicol
harbor, launched and floated acre
to its present location supported by
hundreds of empty oil barrels and
sunk in place under the direction of
the designers.

One of the most interesting
pects of the Marine Railv is the
cradle’s movement. The cradle struct-
ure rests on hundreds of steel rollers
which in turn rest on the three track
ways. It moves much as a heavy box

pipe or rollers.

The cradle’s movement is controlled
and the weight is supported by a
long, heavy chain 4” in diameter.

the cradle, each end is extended under
the cradle, up the track between the |
ways, over the two chain wheels of
the 75 horse-power steam hauling
engine and back down the tr:
again. The engine, geared 75-to-one,
has an effective pulling strength of |
| close to 4000 horse-power. |

There it is connected to two 11/8”
diameter backing chains which extend |
to the outer end of the track, around |
|two pulleys secured there, and back
up the track to the under side of the |
cradle.

There, in conjunction with a series |
of pulleys and a 3/4” diameter equa-
lizing chain, the whole system is kept
tight, When bringing a vessel up ou)

Timing Is Critical

The dry-docking of any vessel re-
quires split-second timing, for the
period between the instant when she
yancy and is fully
supported by the cradle is a critical
one.

Before a docking takes place, the
keel and bilge blocks are lined and
shaped to match the hull structure
of the vessel, the underwater
tions of the track are examined
by a diver for any obstructions and
the dock is lowered to its full extent
with approximately 12 feet of water
over the lower end and _ three-and-
one-half feet at the upper end.
