left his wife, his children and his job
to pedal around the world.

among them Mrs. H. C. Waits, the

no further.

Rosimbo’s eventful — and what
| proved to be very fruitful — stop in
Houston was primarily to old
friends. Here the Croes family visited
Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Avanzini. It
|was the beginning of a prosperous
| association as the two joined forces
in the home building business. Mr.
| Avanzini, a former Lago still opera-
}tor and Mrs. Avanzini, an Aruban,
| had been living in Houston for five
; years prior to the Croes’ visit.

Building Enterprise

The two partners began thei
|building endeavors in September,
|1951, with the consituction of three
five-room G. I. houses on the out-
skirts of Houston. Their first homes
were followed by the building of lar-
ger homes in rapid succession. From
five-room homes, the partners Croes
| and Avanzini went into six, seven and
eee dwellings. Presently un-
jase construction in that section of

While strong measures are being

Meanwhile simple preventive measu-

Cleanliness important, both

Inagua Shipper Has 12 Nationalities Aboard

A frequent visitor to Aruba is
the Inagua Shipper, the first
motor vessel of her kind and a}
virtual United Nations among
ships. Patterned after the Salte
class of vessel, she is in the Ca-
ribbean oil trade.

Some aspects of her international
character are these. Her master is
American, the chief engineer
Norwegian and 10 nations are re-
presented in her crew of 21.

She Brazilian design, was
built in Japan, is registered in Li-
beria, is owned by a Liberian affi-
liate of a Bahaman salt company
and is under charter to Esso Co-
lombiana hauling products derived
from Venezuelan crude oil.

The Inagua Shipper came off the
ways of the Uraga Dock Co. in
Japan in March of 1951. On her
maiden voyage in May of last year

A 2400-ton vessel, the Shipper”



is owned by the West India Tankers
of Liberia, Inc., an affiliate of West
India
The Bahamas.

The ship is the first of the 2400- |

ton class powered by Caterpillar
diesel engines of the 1200-r.p.m.
range in coastal and deep sea
sailing. Three of these diesels turn
the ship’s three screws.

The capacity of the three engines
— 400 horsepower each — is close
to that usually supplied by auxi-

Chemicals, Ltd., of Inagua, |

liary power units, not main propul-
sion sources.



On the "Shipper’s’” maiden voy- |

age, an average speed of 10.4 knots
was maintained. By using the center
engine only, the owners report, the
ship will do 7.5 knots; by using only
the two out-board engines the ship
will do 9 knots.

”On one occasion with a reduction

gear down, the port engine was cut |



out and the vessel still maintained
11 knots on a voyage from Trinidad
to Aruba in a light condition,” the
owners reported.

Diesels also provide the ship with
a 3000 gallon-per-minute pumping
capacity, with electric power and
air pressure. Ten vessels of the

design award in 1950 have been

Cyclist “Sleeps Out” In Tent At Palm Beach

"PROBABLY THE MOST famous bicycle in the world,” Dr. Heinz Helfgen said as he checked over his equip-

ment after a night spent in his tent on Palm Beach. The tent, the bike and Dr. Helfgen had traveled over

31,000 miles when he stopped in Aruba "to see a Dutch island.” He left next day for South America, bound
home through North Africa for Dusseldorf.

strangers to the youth of another.
He elected to take on the task. |

"World Citizen”

Dressed in a terry-cloth sport shirt
and blue swimming trunks, his body
lean and tanned from his journey, he
looked out over the Caribbean and
anticipated a question. |

”Yes,” he said, "I am a citizen of |
the world. But not in the Garry Davis |
idea of utopia. I’m just certain that
prejudice breeds war and I hope to
help stamp out prejudice.”

Dr. Helfgen is familiar with war.
In his work as a newsman he has
covered every major conflict of the
past generation the Paraguay-
Bolivia fight, the Japanese invasion
of China, the Italian invasion of
Ethiopia, the Spanish Civil War,
World War II, the Communist upris-
ing in Indo-China and the Korean
War.

He also commanded some of the
German paratroops who captured |
Crete and fought the Russians in |
World War II. More recently he
advised French air-borne troops in
their fight against the Vietminh in
Indo-China and the guest of the
United States Army in Korea.

He feels, however, that people are
basically good. Psychological testing |
of children — conducted on his cur-
rent trip — convinced him there is
no difference between the children
of various nations.

"It is when they become old enough
to respond to their environment that
they adopt the prejudices which lead
to war,” he explained. ’That is why
I want to work with young people.”

His plan, for which he has no
name, is to initiate a change in the
education of children around the
world.

Teaching Himself

Dr. Helfgen planned his tour to
teach himself to teach others. He felt
in his previous travels he had not
had "the right contact with the

and ride the foot-paths of the back-
country to “eat with the people,
sleep with them, wherever I was.”
He chose a bievele for transportation
because it would be faster than
walking and not as cumbersome as
motoring.

From Dusseldorf he pedaled toward
Austria, then over the Alps to
Yugoslavia. Along the Iron Curtain”
he went on to Bulgaria, then Greece
Turkey and Syria. He slept on an
air mattress in his tent and ate
glucose, biscuits and other energy
foods when regular meals were not
available.

He crossed the Syria desert from
north to south and was told he was
the first man to do it. "I knew about
deserts,’ he said as he lit a ciga-
rette and flicked the match at the
beach, "I was with Rommel in Afri-
Caw

Rested after his desert crossing,
he wheeled on to Iraq, Iran, Af-
ghanistan — where he suffered the
first of three robberies — Pakistan
and India. There he made a side trip
into the Himalayas where he
forced to carry his bicycle for over
200 miles.

Burdened with camping equipment
and souvenirs, his geared bicycle next

China, Hong-Kong, Formosa, Okina-

Pedaled Across U.S.A.

He spent five months in Japan and
traveled to the U.S. as a guest of
the Japanese government. He crossed
the States pedaling from San Fran-
cisco, Calif., to Key West, Fla.,
lecturing and appearing on radio and
television programs.

He went on to Cuba, moved to
Jamaica and then stopped at Aruba
"because I wanted to see a Dutch
island.” He left Aruba for Maracaibo
and Caracas from where he hoped to
paddle down the Orinoco through the
Amazonias.

He planned to complete his "ever

through North Africa.

By the time he reached Aruba, Dr.

he pushed his bicycle into Rangoon. |

In February of that year he had

A Lago hospital employee, who
tasted an “apple” after his daughter
had bitten into one and blistered her
mouth, said the taste is "not unplea-

tertaste.”’ Because of the large pit in-

very much of it.”

Medical books recommend that an

the fruit and that salt water be used

Max Carey, one-time base stealing |
champ of the National League, re-|
cently said that base stealing has be-
come a lost art because today’s ball
players go for the long ball and don’t
worry about getting into position for
the single run. In the old days, ac-
cording to Carey, teams went for one |
run and got into position by stealing.
The New York Giants as a team stole
300 bases in a single year under John
McGraw. The former big league star
went on to say that it wasn’t because

the men were all fast, but because
they had learned the art of base
stealing.

Freddie Fitzsimmons’ recent loan”

Is Fitz being groomed as a manager

Fitzsimmons, until his recent shift,
had been one of Durocher’s able

coaches. One reason presented for the
move is that the Giant front office is |
a little worried about the repeated
rumors of Leo’s going into the movie

Way to Invention

Bill lived in Italy, and his real,
mame was Guglielmo, but that is an|
Italian name for William, so let’s call |
him Bill. He was a sickly boy who}
couldn’t run and play outdoors, so |
his father brought special teachers |
to teach him at home. |

One day a new teacher came from |

many with real news.
A professor named Hertz has |
found a new kind of wave, filled with |
electricity,” the teacher — said. |
You can’t see the wave, nor feel |
it, but it’s there, invisible!”

»That’s wonderful!” cried
”An invisible But what

s y that if you hook up a battery to
a second battery in another room, you
can send this wave, or impulse, from |
one room to the other.”

To Bill this v an exciting new
type of invention. He went to Leg- |
horn, Italy, to learn more about these
. While he was still in his
teens he experimented with them, |
himself, and found that the waves
could be sent for more than a mile}
away, without any wires.

among them Mrs. H. C. Waits, the

no further.

Rosimbo’s eventful — and what
| proved to be very fruitful — stop in
Houston was primarily to old
friends. Here the Croes family visited
Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Avanzini. It
|was the beginning of a prosperous
| association as the two joined forces
in the home building business. Mr.
| Avanzini, a former Lago still opera-
}tor and Mrs. Avanzini, an Aruban,
| had been living in Houston for five
; years prior to the Croes’ visit.

Building Enterprise

The two partners began thei
|building endeavors in September,
|1951, with the consituction of three
five-room G. I. houses on the out-
skirts of Houston. Their first homes
were followed by the building of lar-
ger homes in rapid succession. From
five-room homes, the partners Croes
| and Avanzini went into six, seven and

While strong measures are being

Born in Saveneta, Mr. Croes’ Lago |

employ began when he 13%
years old. His early jobs were that of
a water boy in the Mechanical De-
partment — Labor and office boy in
the Accounting Department. He pro-
gressed to timekeeper, key punch
operator and then IBM operator. It
was in 1936 that he and J. J. P. (Zep)
Oduber, present Tabulating and Sta-
tistics Division head, were sent to the
United States for IBM training.
Following their return, the two men
were not only competent operators
of all IBM machines, but they w
also repairmen. In September, 1944,

Floating United Nations



Inagua Shipper Has 12 Nationalities Aboard

A frequent visitor to Aruba is
the Inagua Shipper, the first
motor vessel of her kind and a}
virtual United Nations among
ships. Patterned after the Salte
class of vessel, she is in the Ca-
ribbean oil trade.

Some aspects of her international
character are these. Her master is
American, the chief engineer
Norwegian and 10 nations are re-
presented in her crew of 21.

She Brazilian design, was
built in Japan, is registered in Li-
beria, is owned by a Liberian affi-
liate of a Bahaman salt company
and is under charter to Esso Co-
lombiana hauling products derived
from Venezuelan crude oil.

The Inagua Shipper came off the
ways of the Uraga Dock Co. in
Japan in March of 1951. On her
maiden voyage in May of last year

A 2400-ton vessel, the Shipper”



is owned by the West India Tankers
of Liberia, Inc., an affiliate of West
India
The Bahamas.

The ship is the first of the 2400- |

ton class powered by Caterpillar
diesel engines of the 1200-r.p.m.
range in coastal and deep sea
sailing. Three of these diesels turn
the ship’s three screws.

The capacity of the three engines
— 400 horsepower each — is close
to that usually supplied by auxi-

Chemicals, Ltd., of Inagua, |

liary power units, not main propul-
sion sources.



On the "Shipper’s’” maiden voy- |

age, an average speed of 10.4 knots
was maintained. By using the center
engine only, the owners report, the
ship will do 7.5 knots; by using only
the two out-board engines the ship
will do 9 knots.

”On one occasion with a reduction

gear down, the port engine was cut |



out and the vessel still maintained
11 knots on a voyage from Trinidad
to Aruba in a light condition,” the
owners reported.

Diesels also provide the ship with
a 3000 gallon-per-minute pumping
capacity, with electric power and
air pressure. Ten vessels of the
Salte class which won a_ naval
design award in 1950 have been
built in the Japanese yards 60 miles

Cyclist “Sleeps Out” In Tent At Palm Beach

"PROBABLY THE MOST famous bicycle in the world,” Dr. Heinz Helfgen said as he checked over his equip-

ment after a night spent in his tent on Palm Beach. The tent, the bike and Dr. Helfgen had traveled over

31,000 miles when he stopped in Aruba "to see a Dutch island.” He left next day for South America, bound
home through North Africa for Dusseldorf.

strangers to the youth of another.
He elected to take on the task. |

"World Citizen”

Dressed in a terry-cloth sport shirt
and blue swimming trunks, his body
lean and tanned from his journey, he
looked out over the Caribbean and
anticipated a question. |

”Yes,” he said, "I am a citizen of |
the world. But not in the Garry Davis |
idea of utopia. I’m just certain that
prejudice breeds war and I hope to
help stamp out prejudice.”

Dr. Helfgen is familiar with war.
In his work as a newsman he has
covered every major conflict of the
past generation the Paraguay-
Bolivia fight, the Japanese invasion
of China, the Italian invasion of
Ethiopia, the Spanish Civil War,
World War II, the Communist upris-
ing in Indo-China and the Korean
War.

He also commanded some of the
German paratroops who captured |
Crete and fought the Russians in |
World War II. More recently he
advised French air-borne troops in
their fight against the Vietminh in
Indo-China and the guest of the
United States Army in Korea.

He feels, however, that people are
basically good. Psychological testing |
of children — conducted on his cur-
rent trip — convinced him there is
no difference between the children
of various nations.

"It is when they become old enough
to respond to their environment that
they adopt the prejudices which lead
to war,” he explained. ’That is why
I want to work with young people.”

His plan, for which he has no
name, is to initiate a change in the
education of children around the
world.

Teaching Himself

Dr. Helfgen planned his tour to
teach himself to teach others. He felt
in his previous travels he had not
had "the right contact with the

and ride the foot-paths of the back-
country to “eat with the people,
sleep with them, wherever I was.”
He chose a bievele for transportation
because it would be faster than
walking and not as cumbersome as
motoring.

From Dusseldorf he pedaled toward
Austria, then over the Alps to
Yugoslavia. Along the Iron Curtain”
he went on to Bulgaria, then Greece
Turkey and Syria. He slept on an
air mattress in his tent and ate
glucose, biscuits and other energy
foods when regular meals were not
available.

He crossed the Syria desert from
north to south and was told he was
the first man to do it. "I knew about
deserts,’ he said as he lit a ciga-
rette and flicked the match at the
beach, "I was with Rommel in Afri-
Caw

Rested after his desert crossing,
he wheeled on to Iraq, Iran, Af-
ghanistan — where he suffered the
first of three robberies — Pakistan
and India. There he made a side trip
into the Himalayas where he
forced to carry his bicycle for over
200 miles.

Burdened with camping equipment
and souvenirs, his geared bicycle next

rolled through Burma, Siam, Indo- |

China, Hong-Kong, Formosa, Okina-
wa, Japan and the United Stated.

Pedaled Across U.S.A.

He spent five months in Japan and
traveled to the U.S. as a guest of
the Japanese government. He crossed
the States pedaling from San Fran-
cisco, Calif., to Key West, Fla.,
lecturing and appearing on radio and
television programs.

He went on to Cuba, moved to
Jamaica and then stopped at Aruba
"because I wanted to see a Dutch
island.” He left Aruba for Maracaibo
and Caracas from where he hoped to
paddle down the Orinoco through the
Amazonias.

He planned to complete his "ever
eastward” trip by heading home
through North Africa.

By the time he reached Aruba, Dr.

1952, Dr. Helfgen was captured by
the Communists he struggled
through the Tungpu Pass, held three
days and then released with only his |
bicycle.

"I had to play Communist to get |
away,” he explained. Two weeks later |
he pushed his bicycle into Rangoon. |
"The only thing I was wearing was a
pair of shorts and a long beard,” he |
chuckled.

In February of that year he had

"Old Lady” is the pet of Z. De-

A Lago hospital employee, who
tasted an “apple” after his daughter
had bitten into one and blistered her
mouth, said the taste is "not unplea-

Medical books recommend that an

the fruit and that salt water be used

The New York Giants as a team stole
300 bases in a single year under John

went on to say that it wasn’t because

the men were all fast, but because
they had learned the art of base

Way to Invention

Bill lived in Italy, and his real,
mame was Guglielmo, but that is an|
Italian name for William, so let’s call |
him Bill. He was a sickly boy who}
couldn’t run and play outdoors, so |
his father brought special teachers |
to teach him at home. |

One day a new teacher came from |

many with real news.
A professor named Hertz has |
found a new kind of wave, filled with |
electricity,” the teacher — said. |
You can’t see the wave, nor feel |
it, but it’s there, invisible!”

»That’s wonderful!” cried
”An invisible But what

s y that if you hook up a battery to
a second battery in another room, you
can send this wave, or impulse, from |
one room to the other.”

To Bill this v an exciting new
type of invention. He went to Leg- |
horn, Italy, to learn more about these
. While he was still in his
teens he experimented with them, |
himself, and found that the waves
could be sent for more than a mile}
away, without any wires.
