Cash will become the sole medium of exchange at the two Lago
'commissaries beginning with the Colony Commissary in September and
the Lago Commissary in November. The switch to cash marks the end
of a credit system for Lago employees which was inaugurated in 1941.

H.R.H. PRINCE BERNHARD of the Netherlands visited Aruba Aug
during an official visit to the Netherlands Antilles. Following his review
of troops at Dakota Field, he briefly toured the island. He is shown

advantage to the employee leaving on

Credit to Cash Change

(Continued from page 1)

12 months or until the bill has been
paid at a minimum of Fils. 10 a}
month.

Employees may at any time pay)
the unpaid credit bill off in full. This
may be done by contacting the Ac-
counting Department. The commis-
sary will not handle credit payments.

Employees shopping at the Lago
Commissary will use the same pro-
cedures when checking out as they
do now with the addition of paying
for their purchases in cash. Upon
checking out, the shopper must first
show his or her ficha or identifica-
tion card and then present the char-
gaplate.

(For clarification the word
charga-plate is used here, but

it is on longer used to charge.

It is used only for recording

the purchase and the buyer’s

payroll number and name.)

The employee will pay for his pur-
chases in cash and the amount will
be recorded on a separate card, pun-
ched with the charga-plate and de-
posited in a box at the check-out
counter. The punching of the card
will be done in the same fashion as
was the case under the credit system.
The card, however, will not be used
as a charge against the employee.
The purchase will be paid for in cash.

The card will be used by the Ac-j;
counting Department solely for the |
purpose of keeping account of the
amount of purchases made so that
the employee does not exceed the esta-
blished buying limit.

Buying limits established in the
past will remain the same — 40 per
cent of normal earnings for married
men and 20 per cent of normal ear-
nings for single status men. All other
commissary regulations will be main-
tained as in the past.

The only item that will remain on
a credit basis is safety shoes. When
bought, they will be considered as a
single purchase and charged on a se-
parate card. There will be no change
in the payment procedure of this
item.

Much of the work and planning
that has gone into the change-over
was due to the conscientious coopera-
tion of the Lago Commissary Advi-
sory Committee. In order to make the
change with as little confusion as
possible for their constituents, mem-
bers of the Committee will maintain
an information booth in the commis-
sary Nov. 2, 3, and 4. The men will
be available to answer questions and
assist their constituents in making
the change. |

In both the Colony and Lago Com-
missaries, the number of cash regis-
ters at the check-out counters will re-
main the same. Checkers at both com-
missaries have been undergoing ex-
tensive training to enable them to
handie currency and make change as
quickly and efficiently as possible.

The Change

The move from credit to cash has
been under study for a considerable
period of time. It evolves around the
development and growth of Lago’s
two commissaries which supply over
7000 employees with basic commodi-
ties. Before making the move, the
plan was minutely investigated by
members of Management with the
employee committees concerned with
the buying habits of their consti-
tuents.

Over the months the switch to cash
has been investigated, two economic
factors were discussed at great
length. Both involve the employee.
One is his relation with the Company
and the other his relation to island
economics.

Reasons

tion with the Company — served as a
prime mover. A study had been com-
pleted that showed the average take-
home pay of 10 per cent of the lowest |
wage earners in each pay rate to be
from Fls. 20 to Fl every two
weeks. This is primarily due to the
fact that a large amount of food-
stuffs for the employee and his fa-
mily have been purchased on credit |
and deducted from his pay along with
other authorized deductions before he |
receives it. Management feel it
would be desirable for the individual |
employee to receive all possible cash
money in his pay envelope since he
would then be better able to realize |
the very liberal wages he receives.

By receiving a larger proportion of
his pay, the employee thereby has the |
opportunity of becoming a more
intregal part of his particular com-,
munity. Instead of much of his mone-
tary affairs being, in effect, managed |
through credit he will become econo- |
mically independent. It will be his per-
sonal decision that will influence his
spending, where he spends his money
and just how he and his family con-
trol their budget. The employee, by
receiving much of his pay in his pay
envelope, will become more of a com-
manding individual than he is now
under the shadow of credit.

To release more of the employee’s
pay for his individual control has
long been Lago’s desire. It is not the
Company’s feeling that it should con-
trol the employee’s spending. Rather,
members of Management would
rather see the employee care for his
own account as will be the case when
the switch to cash takes effect. Sur-
veys have been made in the past to
seek out ways to eliminate pay de-
ductions, one of them being commis-
sary credit.

Island Economics

The second factor — the employee's
relation to island economics — was
considered in light of overall coopera-
tion with the island’s business houses.
Under the credit system Lago laid
first claim to the employee’s pay, the
business concerns the second. This
put the latter in an unfavorable posi-
tion in that the employee granted
credit by outside concerns had very
little money with which to settle
these obligations.

Cash ]
The only official Government re-
commendation received by the Com-
pany to eliminate this situation was
the use of cash instead of credit at)
the commissaries. By swinging over
to cash, it will mean that purchases
will be made according to basic eco-
nomic factors rather than credit in-
fluence. This assists the retail outlets
in that they will be in a position to
attract the employee’s trade. It has
only been a relatively short time that |
Aruba’s business houses for the first
time historically have been in a posi-
tion — both in number of stores and
supply at hand — to absorb the in-|
creased traffic that presumably will
develop under the cash plan at the
commissaries.

Supply and demand — one greatly
out of balance with the other when
oil first raised its bountiful head in
Aruba — forced Lago into the com-
missary business.

History

With the construction of the re-
finery and mushrooming growth,
large numbers of workers came to
Lago. Of primary importance was
their need for basic commodities. It
could not even begin to be met by
the island’s business concerns. In the
early thirties, this problem was alle-
viated by the construction of a com-
missary. (The old commissary was

Record Cargo Goes
To Esso Italiana

When the tanker Lundy’s Lane left
Aruba August 8, its tanks carried the
most valuable cargo ever shipped
from Lago. The tanker carried
136,000 barrels of aviation gasoline,
valued at well over $1,000,000 (Fls.

i 1,884,000).

During the war, many tankers car-

ing av-gas left Aruba, but most of
these ships were not filled to the
maximum and the price of the fuels
they carried lower per barrel
than that pumped aboard Lundy’s
Lane for its most recent trip.

The situation was kept from reaching

disastrous proportions by the com-),

missaries since they were still able to
maintain much of their stock for
thousands of families.

Through the recent development of
the island’s stores both in the number
of outlets and retail and wholesale
supply lines, they are now better able
to serve the over-all population of the
island. The switch to cash puts them
in a better position to compete for
normal employee spending. Their
success in attracting increased trade
will be dependent on their ability to

The cable is brought in and secured
at the base of the stack. A crewman
is hauled to the top where he hooks
a block and tackle over the rim. He
then works his way around the rim,
putting in hooks which support other
blocks that carry the bosuns’ chairs
in which the men work.

This method, known as "ballooning
the stack,” was adopted as a safety
measure. Previously hooks and lad-

In addition to being a safety
measure, "ballooning a stack” is a
time saver. For many stack jobs,

| where for one reason or another, use
of a balloon is impractical, a scaffold
must be built around the outside of
the stack. Heavy equipment can then
be used by several men working at
the same time. But for many jobs,
}a balloon very much like a child’s
toy is the best tool that can be used.

While it is theoretically true that
what goes up must come down, it
does not necessarily follow that it
| must come down in the right place,

cuts the string and the balloons go

Island Report

Rainfall Figures Fail
To Support Forecasters

Local weather seers, who’ve been
predicting that the recent rains
heralded an early start of the island’s
rainy season, get little support from
rain-fall figures. Only .66 inches fell
on the island during July compared
to .80 inches last July. This month
36 inches fell the first 10 days.
Throughout August, 1952, 1.29 inches
fell.

Cash will become the sole medium of exchange at the two Lago
'commissaries beginning with the Colony Commissary in September and
the Lago Commissary in November. The switch to cash marks the end
of a credit system for Lago employees which was inaugurated in 1941.

H.R.H. PRINCE BERNHARD of the Netherlands visited Aruba Aug
during an official visit to the Netherlands Antilles. Following his review
of troops at Dakota Field, he briefly toured the island. He is shown

Credit to Cash Change

(Continued from page 1)

12 months or until the bill has been
paid at a minimum of Fils. 10 a}
month.

Employees may at any time pay)
the unpaid credit bill off in full. This
may be done by contacting the Ac-
counting Department. The commis-
sary will not handle credit payments.

Employees shopping at the Lago
Commissary will use the same pro-
cedures when checking out as they
do now with the addition of paying
for their purchases in cash. Upon
checking out, the shopper must first
show his or her ficha or identifica-
tion card and then present the char-
gaplate.

(For clarification the word
charga-plate is used here, but

it is on longer used to charge.

It is used only for recording

the purchase and the buyer’s

payroll number and name.)

The employee will pay for his pur-
chases in cash and the amount will
be recorded on a separate card, pun-
ched with the charga-plate and de-
posited in a box at the check-out
counter. The punching of the card
will be done in the same fashion as
was the case under the credit system.
The card, however, will not be used
as a charge against the employee.
The purchase will be paid for in cash.

The card will be used by the Ac-j;
counting Department solely for the |
purpose of keeping account of the
amount of purchases made so that
the employee does not exceed the esta-
blished buying limit.

Buying limits established in the
past will remain the same — 40 per
cent of normal earnings for married
men and 20 per cent of normal ear-
nings for single status men. All other
commissary regulations will be main-
tained as in the past.

The only item that will remain on
a credit basis is safety shoes. When
bought, they will be considered as a
single purchase and charged on a se-
parate card. There will be no change
in the payment procedure of this
item.

Much of the work and planning
that has gone into the change-over
was due to the conscientious coopera-
tion of the Lago Commissary Advi-
sory Committee. In order to make the
change with as little confusion as
possible for their constituents, mem-
bers of the Committee will maintain
an information booth in the commis-
sary Nov. 2, 3, and 4. The men will
be available to answer questions and
assist their constituents in making
the change. |

In both the Colony and Lago Com-
missaries, the number of cash regis-
ters at the check-out counters will re-
main the same. Checkers at both com-
missaries have been undergoing ex-
tensive training to enable them to
handie currency and make change as
quickly and efficiently as possible.

The Change

The move from credit to cash has
been under study for a considerable
period of time. It evolves around the
development and growth of Lago’s
two commissaries which supply over
7000 employees with basic commodi-
ties. Before making the move, the
plan was minutely investigated by
members of Management with the
employee committees concerned with
the buying habits of their consti-
tuents.

Over the months the switch to cash
has been investigated, two economic
factors were discussed at great
length. Both involve the employee.
One is his relation with the Company
and the other his relation to island
economics.

Reasons

tion with the Company — served as a
prime mover. A study had been com-
pleted that showed the average take-
home pay of 10 per cent of the lowest |
wage earners in each pay rate to be
from Fls. 20 to Fl every two
weeks. This is primarily due to the
fact that a large amount of food-
stuffs for the employee and his fa-
mily have been purchased on credit |
and deducted from his pay along with
other authorized deductions before he |
receives it. Management feel it
would be desirable for the individual |
employee to receive all possible cash
money in his pay envelope since he
would then be better able to realize |
the very liberal wages he receives.

By receiving a larger proportion of
his pay, the employee thereby has the |
opportunity of becoming a more
intregal part of his particular com-,
munity. Instead of much of his mone-
tary affairs being, in effect, managed |
through credit he will become econo- |
mically independent. It will be his per-
sonal decision that will influence his
spending, where he spends his money
and just how he and his family con-
trol their budget. The employee, by
receiving much of his pay in his pay
envelope, will become more of a com-
manding individual than he is now
under the shadow of credit.

To release more of the employee’s
pay for his individual control has
long been Lago’s desire. It is not the
Company’s feeling that it should con-
trol the employee’s spending. Rather,
members of Management would
rather see the employee care for his
own account as will be the case when
the switch to cash takes effect. Sur-
veys have been made in the past to
seek out ways to eliminate pay de-
ductions, one of them being commis-
sary credit.

Island Economics

The second factor — the employee's
relation to island economics — was
considered in light of overall coopera-
tion with the island’s business houses.
Under the credit system Lago laid
first claim to the employee’s pay, the
business concerns the second. This
put the latter in an unfavorable posi-
tion in that the employee granted
credit by outside concerns had very
little money with which to settle
these obligations.

Cash ]
The only official Government re-
commendation received by the Com-
pany to eliminate this situation was
the use of cash instead of credit at)
the commissaries. By swinging over
to cash, it will mean that purchases
will be made according to basic eco-
nomic factors rather than credit in-
fluence. This assists the retail outlets
in that they will be in a position to
attract the employee’s trade. It has
only been a relatively short time that |
Aruba’s business houses for the first
time historically have been in a posi-
tion — both in number of stores and
supply at hand — to absorb the in-|
creased traffic that presumably will
develop under the cash plan at the
commissaries.

Supply and demand — one greatly
out of balance with the other when
oil first raised its bountiful head in
Aruba — forced Lago into the com-
missary business.

History

With the construction of the re-
finery and mushrooming growth,
large numbers of workers came to
Lago. Of primary importance was
their need for basic commodities. It
could not even begin to be met by
the island’s business concerns. In the
early thirties, this problem was alle-
viated by the construction of a com-
missary. (The old commissary was

Record Cargo Goes
To Esso Italiana

When the tanker Lundy’s Lane left
Aruba August 8, its tanks carried the
most valuable cargo ever shipped
from Lago. The tanker carried
136,000 barrels of aviation gasoline,
valued at well over $1,000,000 (Fls.

i 1,884,000).

During the war, many tankers car-

ing av-gas left Aruba, but most of
these ships were not filled to the
maximum and the price of the fuels
they carried lower per barrel
than that pumped aboard Lundy’s
Lane for its most recent trip.

The cargo was assigned to Esso

The situation was kept from reaching

disastrous proportions by the com-),

Through the recent development of
the island’s stores both in the number
of outlets and retail and wholesale
supply lines, they are now better able
to serve the over-all population of the

in a better position to compete for
normal employee spending. Their

In addition to being a safety
measure, "ballooning a stack” is a
time saver. For many stack jobs,

| where for one reason or another, use
of a balloon is impractical, a scaffold
must be built around the outside of
the stack. Heavy equipment can then
be used by several men working at
the same time. But for many jobs,
}a balloon very much like a child’s
toy is the best tool that can be used.

cuts the string and the balloons go

Rainfall Figures Fail
To Support Forecasters

Local weather seers, who’ve been
predicting that the recent rains
heralded an early start of the island’s
rainy season, get little support from
rain-fall figures. Only .66 inches fell
on the island during July compared
to .80 inches last July. This month
36 inches fell the first 10 days.
Throughout August, 1952, 1.29 inches
fell.
