Eleven men, under the direction of |
Victor Steele, were responsible this
year for trimming the tree. Up the
side of the fractionator they strung}
lights to form the trunk of the tree
and then, starting at the eight floor,
put in five floors of green lights to)
create the lower branches of the tree.

Then, from the 13th to the 20th
floors, they strung ropes and to them
whipped the portable rubber-coated
cables which carry the light sockets.
Into them they screwed the 25-watt
red, green, yellow, blue and flame-
tint lights which, spaced five feet
apart, make up the tree. In addition,
they replaced the plant’s regular |
lights with colored bulbs to fill out)
the tree.

On the 20th floor, 332 feet, three
inches above sea-level, they set up the

burned out bulbs, sometime using sa-
fety belts to reach the more inaccessi-
ble sockets.

Three men started Dec. 1 putting
the lights in place and later were
joined by eight others to have the job
done by Dec. 18. In carlier years the
lights were adjusted as many as six
times before they were satisfactory.
This year they only had to be ad-
justed once.



”T don’t deserve the credit, though,”
Mr. Steele said. Phe credit should
go to the men who diagrammed the
layout in previous years and the men)
who put up the lights.”

Seven years earlier, in the midst of

gular flights to Miami and linked
Aruba to the Dutch airline’s world-
wide network. In those

star, DC-3, DC-4 and for a short
time — Constellations.

Since 1948 KLM has been using
Convair 240’s on its European system
with such success it decided to pur-
chase 12 Convair 340’s which Vultee
developed from the earlier model.

Six of the 340’s will be used in the



line’s 14,000-mile West Indies division
and will be named after the Nether-
lands Antilles islands. They will go
on the Caracas - Aruba - Kingston -
Miami run early in February, the
airline announced.

The Convair 340 is powered by two
2400-horsepower engines. It has a
cruising speed of 300 miles per hour
and a cruising altitude of 15,000 feet.

KLM said the plane’s 1700-gallon
fuel capacity gives it a flying time of
12 hours. The cabin, which holds 44
passengers, pressurized,
proofed and insulated. Hydraulie
wheel brakes, wing flaps and rever-

Lago Fetes
Government
Employees

Over 300 Aruba government em-
ployees and Lago management
members were the company’s
guests at the Aruba Golf Club the
night of Dec. 18 for the 17th an-
nual Christmas Party.

An address by Lt. Gov. Dr. L. C.

Kwart floor show and the award-











ing of door prizes were the high-
lights of the evening.

Gov. Kwartsz said the purpose of
the event was not only to celebrate
the 25 irs Lago and the govern-|
ment h 1 together, but to

reaffirm the friendships which have
made this cooperation possible.

He said Lago and the island go-
vernment had the purpose as
the basis for their relationship, "the
aim to serve not only the community
in which we live but also and espe-
cially the interests of the individuals
of our community.”

Commenting that the year past
"did not come up to our expecta-|
tions,” he pointed out that "we will
again be offered an opportunity for
a whole year to work toward the a
of making life worth while living for|

|

same

our fellowmen.”

The lieutenant governor expressed
his thanks to Lago for its contribu-
tions to the island’s economy and for
its interest in the individuals who
comprise the community.

Previous to Dr. Kwartsz’s remarks,
Lago President J. J. Horigan wel-|
comed the guests. ’This party,” he|
"gives each of us a chance to
personally strengthen the ties Pe
tween Lago and the government per-
sonnel of Aruba. Tonight we join|
each other in friendship and goodwill
to exchange the heartful greetings of
the season.”

The floorshow, for which Dr. A. N.|
J. Reinders-Folmer served as mas |
of-ceremonies, consisted of The
Sabaneta, a m group;
Tircio Steba; Singer Tali Lopez back-
ed up by three guitars and a rhumba |
dancer, ”Zorayma.”

A special tribute was paid to W. V.
Stephens of the Marine Department |
who has served on each party com-|
mittee the past 17 years. Mr. Ste-
phens will retire next April with over

Eleven men, under the direction of |
Victor Steele, were responsible this
year for trimming the tree. Up the
side of the fractionator they strung}
lights to form the trunk of the tree
and then, starting at the eight floor,
put in five floors of green lights to)
create the lower branches of the tree.

Then, from the 13th to the 20th
floors, they strung ropes and to them
whipped the portable rubber-coated
cables which carry the light sockets.
Into them they screwed the 25-watt
red, green, yellow, blue and flame-
tint lights which, spaced five feet
apart, make up the tree. In addition,
they replaced the plant’s regular |
lights with colored bulbs to fill out)
the tree.

On the 20th floor, 332 feet, three
inches above sea-level, they set up the

burned out bulbs, sometime using sa-
fety belts to reach the more inaccessi-
ble sockets.

Three men started Dec. 1 putting
the lights in place and later were
joined by eight others to have the job
done by Dec. 18. In carlier years the
lights were adjusted as many as six
times before they were satisfactory.
This year they only had to be ad-
justed once.



”T don’t deserve the credit, though,”
Mr. Steele said. Phe credit should
go to the men who diagrammed the
layout in previous years and the men)
who put up the lights.”

They were R. Mingo, M. Emanuel,
K. Nunes, R. Brathwaite, A. Burler- |
son, O. Ifill, C. Enser, V. Winterdahl, |
D. Morris and J. Kock, all from the |

Since 1948 KLM has been using
Convair 240’s on its European system
with such success it decided to pur-
chase 12 Convair 340’s which Vultee
developed from the earlier model.

Six of the 340’s will be used in the



line’s 14,000-mile West Indies division
and will be named after the Nether-
lands Antilles islands. They will go
on the Caracas - Aruba - Kingston -
Miami run early in February, the
airline announced.

The Convair 340 is powered by two
2400-horsepower engines. It has a
cruising speed of 300 miles per hour
and a cruising altitude of 15,000 feet.

KLM said the plane’s 1700-gallon
fuel capacity gives it a flying time of
12 hours. The cabin, which holds 44
passengers, pressurized,
proofed and insulated. Hydraulie
wheel brakes, wing flaps and rever-

Lago Fetes
Government
Employees

Over 300 Aruba government em-
ployees and Lago management
members were the company’s
guests at the Aruba Golf Club the
night of Dec. 18 for the 17th an-
nual Christmas Party.

An address by Lt. Gov. Dr. L. C.

Kwart floor show and the award-











ing of door prizes were the high-
lights of the evening.

Gov. Kwartsz said the purpose of
the event was not only to celebrate
the 25 irs Lago and the govern-|
ment h 1 together, but to

reaffirm the friendships which have
made this cooperation possible.

He said Lago and the island go-
vernment had the purpose as
the basis for their relationship, "the
aim to serve not only the community
in which we live but also and espe-
cially the interests of the individuals
of our community.”

Commenting that the year past
"did not come up to our expecta-|
tions,” he pointed out that "we will
again be offered an opportunity for
a whole year to work toward the a
of making life worth while living for|

|

same

our fellowmen.”

The lieutenant governor expressed
his thanks to Lago for its contribu-
tions to the island’s economy and for
its interest in the individuals who
comprise the community.

Previous to Dr. Kwartsz’s remarks,
Lago President J. J. Horigan wel-|
comed the guests. ’This party,” he|
"gives each of us a chance to
personally strengthen the ties Pe
tween Lago and the government per-
sonnel of Aruba. Tonight we join|
each other in friendship and goodwill
to exchange the heartful greetings of
the season.”

The floorshow, for which Dr. A. N.|
J. Reinders-Folmer served as mas |
of-ceremonies, consisted of The
Sabaneta, a m group;
Tircio Steba; Singer Tali Lopez back-
ed up by three guitars and a rhumba |
dancer, ”Zorayma.”

A special tribute was paid to W. V.

who has served on each party com-|
mittee the past 17 years. Mr. Ste-
phens will retire next April with over
