The Caribbean largest Christm:
tree was stripped of its colorful
foliage early this year. Although the

Cat Plant Christmas tree was
made, nature played a part in
early shedding.

Among other things, the elements
took their tolls on the mammoth
structure. It all added up to a general
inspection at a date earlier than
originally planned. The date of the
inspection was moved up to Jan. 11.
This meant that preparation would
have to start before the Twelfth

It is Lago’s annual practice to
leave all Christmas decorations up
until Twelfth cht. While other
decorations remained in place until

desire but because of the urgency of

The command of the Netherlands Marines in Aruba changed hands

WHILE THOUSANDS of men busied themselves with the processing of

oil Dec. 31, Instrumentman Antero Dykhoff quietly concentrated on a

humanitarian deed. His was the project of repairing a valve on oxygen

bottles used for the San Pedro Hospital incubators. The valve was re-

paired and returned to the hospital — a small deed quietly done in the

heart of the world’s largest refinery as an aid to the community in
which it operates.

S. G. Henriquez, One of Lago’s
First Employees, Dead at 51



Segundo Graciniano Henriquez, one of the first men hired by Lago
in Aruba, died at his Oranjestad home Jan. 4.

With Mr. Henriquez’s death goes one of the men whose spirit, endea-
vor and labor in the early days of oil in Aruba helped build the solid
foundation upon which Lago now stands.

Mr. Henriquez with Hendrick We-

Babies Born
At Lago Hospital

With the arrival of the New Year,
two Lago families enjoyed another
type of arrival — the births of a
little boy and little girl.

The Lago Hospital New Year’s
Day births were a baby boy born to
Mr. and Mrs. Felix Hamlet and a

assistant engineer of the Invermira,
a combination tow boat and harbor |
launch; Mr. Wever as captain. Al-|
though the Invermira was the first |
dicsel boat in Aruba, Mr. Henriquez
was a fully competent engineer. A
native Aruban, he had traveled to
other islands where his work brought |
him in contact with diesel engines. |

Shortly after Mr. Henriquez’s start |
with the company he was made chief

engineer. He thus became baby girl born to Mr. and Mrs. Eloi-

During the Twenties, the Inver-
mira operated from an old pier loca-
ted in front of the present Receiving
and Shipping office. The tow boat
acted as a sea-to-shore contact be-

arriving when 1954 was only four
hours and 22 minutes old. The Werle-
man baby arrived at 2:25 the after-
noon of Jan. 1.

Sulphur From Oil

new system to convert worthless by-
product into valuable basic chemical

natural sulphur were discovered in huge underground "dc
in Texas and Louisiana. A novel method, called the F
process, was developed for bringing the sulphur to the surf:

The method is based on the fact that elemental sulphur
melts at about 250°F. Wells are drilled into the de posits.
Superheated steam is pumped down and the melted sulphur
forced up other pipes by compressed air. The sulphur comes
to the surface as a hot frothy amber liquid. Cooled in huge
vats, it solidifies into nearly pure sulphur. Nowhere else does
it occur in this form.









With this cheap, easy-to-use supply of nearly pure sulphur,
more and more of the world’s industries turned to the U.S.
for sulphur. Meanwhile the demand for sulphur
astronomical proportions as new proc
and sulphuric acid were developed and
everything expanded enormously

Unfortunately, the supply is not unlimited, and in 1951
the United States government had to curtail exports and take
steps at home to conserve her supplies of this vital mineral.
That same year the U.S. produced 95 per cent of all the
pure sulphur consumed in the world... a whopping 6-million
tons.

Gf sulphur, for — short of completely redesig-
ning their factories and methods — they could not get along

without it. Some old users went back to pyrites and anhy-
drite, others developed new facilities to meet at least part
of their demand. The recovery of spent oxides from gas works
was stepped up. Used acid was recovered in increasing quan-
tities. Rigid economy was f ticed by all consumers.

The situation is still far from satisfactory, but industrial
ers hope that the various steps taken on a world-wide
s — plus the recent discovery of new in Loui-
siana — will soon overcome the sulphur shortage.

Until a few years ago it seemed that there was little the
oil industry could do to ease the sulphur shortage. The oil
industry is a heavy user of sulphur. In 1952, for example,
Lago consumed 22,000,000 pounds of raw sulphur plus 400
carboys of imported high quality sulphurie acid containing
230 pounds each.

Lago is able to recover a large part of the acid used in
processing oil, but fresh sulphuric acid has to be added to
replace the amount that is inevitably used up. Lago makes
its own sulphuric acid from imported sulphur and for 25 years
has maintained a huge sulphur pile r the Acid Plant for
this purpose. So it is that oil literz eats up” thousands
of tons of sulphur each year.

It has long been known that crude petroleum contains
sulphur, but until recently the petroleum industry has been

hydrogen sulfide.

The process that will be used at Lago for extracting sulphur
from fuel gas has five major stages. Fuel gas on its way
to the furnaces is “scrubbed” with diethanolamine (DEA)
which absorbs the hydrogen sulfide. The diethanolamine so-
lution containing the absorbed hydrogen sulfide is then heated.
This rel s the hydrogen sulfide. The diethanolamine is
collected and pumped back to the absorber where it is used
over and over again. The hydrogen sulfide is piped to the
Acid Plant where it will be burned with a controlled
amount of air in the Sulphur Plant now under construction.

When the hydrogen sulfide is burned it forms sulphur
dioxide which readily combines with some of the hydrogen
sulfide still present to form sulphur vapor. When cooled, the
vapor becomes nearly pure liquid sulphur.

In addition to the value of the sulphur itself, recovery of
sulphur from oil should bring an incidental improvement in
the atmosphere because the hydrogen sulfide used in the
sulphur recovery process will no longer be burned in refinery
furnaces along with the fuel gas.

















Any excess hydrogen sulfide not used to make sulphur will
be burned in the new fume abatement unit recently installed
at the Acid Plant. This unit mixes extremely hot air

2700°F to 2800°F — with sulphur compounds in a mixing
chamber where acid-forming gases are converted to harmless
compounds.





Production of sulphur from fuel ga



expected to average
35 tons per day at Lago which should be adequate for normal
demands. On occasion, the combined facilities will produce as
much as 40 tons per day and the exe sulphur will be stored
for use when the sulphur-producing units are down for repairs.
While sulphur still must be removed from petroleum pro-
ducts it is no longer a worthyess by-product. Instead, it has
become a profitable source o. much needed basic chemical.

purificacion di awa recobra pa uso den refineria. Azufre, den
forma di sulphur dioxide”, ta worde us4 pa traha kerosin na
Edeleanu Plant.

Azufre puro tabata conoci desde miles di anja den un for-
ma of otro. Originalmente el a worde descubri den cantidad
chikito cerca di voleano unda el ta worde haya den su forma
natural. Ora e ta kima, el ta duna un vlam di color licht
blauw. Tambe el ta duna un olor chocante y desagradable,
y ta e olor aki cu tin den gasnan di volcano cu a trece e
simbolo folkloristico tocante regionnan infernal bao di tera.
Ta for di e mes gas aki cu acido sulfurico ta worde traha
awendia.

Gradualmente, durante siglonan, recursonan nobo, princi-
palmente e dos mineralnan "pyrite” y “anhydrite”, a worde
descubri y desarolla. Na Inglaterra actualmente tin un mina
cu ta produci anhydrite’ na un hundura di 600 pia. Inme-
diatamente ariba e mina tin un planta di acido cu por produci
como 100-mil ton di acido sulfurico pa anja.

Pa produci azufre for di anhydrite” e mineral ta worde
cayenta cu coke y kalki den un forno cu ta draai. Un gas
fuerte yama "sulphur dioxide” ta worde sacd cu por worde
traha na acido sulfurico. ’Pyrites” tin mester di un proceso
diferente y mas complica. E mineral aki ta worde geroost den
varios tipo di forno y e acido ta worde extraé for di e gas di
sulphur dioxide” cu ta sali durante combustion.

E proceso di extraccion ta munstra simple ariba papel, pero
den practica nan ta dificil y costoso, y e grado di pureza no
ta asina halto manera di azufre natural. Te e cuminzamento
di Siglo Binti, sinembargo, e dos mineralnan aki — ”anhy-
drite” y ”’pyrites” — tabata e recursonan principal di azufre.
Despues, banda di anja 1890 gran deposito di azufre a worde
descubri den ”koepelnan” bao tera na Texas y Louisiana. Un
metodo nobo, yama proceso Frasch, a worde desarollaé pa
trece e azufre ariba tera.

E metodo ta basa ariba e hecho cu azufre elemental ta
smelt na temperatura di 250°F. Posnan a worde coba den e
depositonan bao tera. Stiem masha cayente ta worde gepomp
den nan y e azufre gesmelt ta worde forza pa bin ariba den
otro tubonan door di aire comprimi. E azufre ta bini cayente
ariba tera den forma di un liquido cu ta scuma. Fria den
baril grandi, e ta bira duro y ta keda casi como azufre puro.
Na ningun otro parti el ta worde haya den e forma aki.

Estados Unidos pa _ haya zufre.
Entre tanto, demanda pa azufre a
subi te yega cantidadnan astronomi-
co segun procesonan nobo pa cual
mester di azufre y acido sulfurico a
worde desarolla y segun mercado
mundial di tur cos a aumenta enor-
me.

Inafortunadamente, e cantidad di e
producto aki ta limita, y na 1951 Go- |
bierno di Estados Unidos mester a
reduci exportacion di azufre y tuma
medida den e pais pa conserva e mi-
neral vital aki. mes anja, Estados
Unidos a produci 95% di tur azufre |
puro cu ta worde usa ariba henter |
mundo... un cantidad colosal di 6
million ton.

Segun e cantidad di azufre cu
Estados Unidos tabata bende tabata
reduci, industrianan a cuminza bus-
sobra — si nan no por cambia nan
fabrica y metodonan henteramente — |
man no por sigui sin dje. Algun di e
industrianan a bolbe usa ”pyrites” y|
“anhydrite”, otronan a desarolla otro
facilidadnan pa haya e minimo can-
‘tidad di azufre cu nan mester. E re-
cobramento di oxides” cu ta bai per-
di for di plantanan di gas a worde |
aumenta. Acido usa tabata worde |
recobra na mas cantidad. Economia |
severo tabata practica door di tur cu
tabata usa azufre. E situacion ainda
ta leuw di ta satisfactorio, pero lider-
nan industrial ta spera cu e varios |
medidanan tuma ariba henter mundo |
— ademas di e reciente descubrimen- |
to di "koepelnan” nobo na Louisia- |
na — pronto lo vence e scarcedad di |
azufre.

Te algun anja pasa, tabata parce |
cu industria di azeta por haci masha
poco pa alivia e scarcedad di azufre. |
Industria petrolera ta un di e mayor |}
“Susadornan di azufre. Na 1952, por|
ehempel, Lago a usa 22,000,000 liber |
di azufre bruto y ademas 20,000 botter
grandi di acido sulfurico di calidad
halto cu a worde importa y ta con-
tene 230 liber cada uno. Lago ta na
pPosicion pa recobra un gran canti-|











dad di e acido usa den refinamento
di azeta, pero acido sulfurico fresco
mester worde agregaé pa reemplaza
e cantidad cu inevitablemente ta
worde usa. Lago ta traha su mes
acido sulfurico for di azufre importa
y a mantene un monton grandi_ di

‘azufre cerca di Acid Plant pa e ob-

heto aki. Asina ta, cu azeta en ber-
dad ta "come” miles di ton di azufre
pa anja.

Desde hopi tempo tabata conoci
cu petroleo crudo ta contene azufre,
pero ta solamente poco tempo pasa!
cu industria petrolera tabata interesa
di sake’le afor. Si azufre drenta den
motor y partinan di mashin cu ta
usa productonan manera azeta, ga-
soline y grease, e por causa danjo,
reduci e efecto di ’tetra-ethyl lead”
y causa olor cu ta reduci bende di e|
producto. (Hasta na mercado di ga-|
solin cu octano halto azufre ta mes-
cos cu un diablo!) |

Pe e azufre den azeta crudo|
treci for di Venezuela ta worde re-
fina y saca afor y benta afor hunto
cu otro productonan sin valor. E
azufre no tabata worde recobra pa-
sobra e tabata mas barata y facil pa
haya for di otro fuente. Awor cu de- |
manda ta asina grandi y prijsnan ta |
halzando, e situacion a cambia. Awor,
azeta por worde usa probechosamente
como un fuente pa saca azufre.

Luna p construccion a cuminza
na Lago ariba un Purificador di Gas
Combustible (Fuel Gas). Ora e ta
cla, lo e ta parti di un grupo exten-
sivo di instalacion pa saka azufre for
di azeta. Refinamento di azeta crudo
ta resulta den produccion di algun
gas cu no por worde traha na pro-
ductonan bendible, pero cu ta worde
colecta y kima como combustible den
fornonan den refine E gasnan
combustible aki ta contene un canti-
dad considerable di hidrogeno sulfu-
rico.





















E preceso cu lo worde usa na Lago |
pa extrae azufre for di gas com-|
bustible ariba su camina pa e forno-
nan ta worde "’purifica” cu "dietha-
nolamine” (DEA), cual ta absorba e

hidrogeno sulfurico. E solucion di
“diethanolamine” cu ta contene e|
hidrogeno sulfurico absorba den dj
despues ta worde cayenta. E proceso
aki ta saca afor e hidrogeno sulfuri-
co. E “diethanolamine” ta worde re
cogi y gepomp back pa e absorber’ |
unda e ta worde usa di nobo atrobe.
E hidrogeno sulfurico ta worde man-
da den tubo pa Acid Plant unda e ta
worde kima cu un cierto cantidad di
aire den Planta di Azufre cu ta bao}
di construccion awor. |

Ora e hidrogeno sulfurico ta worde |
kima e ta forma i
cual unbez ta mezcla cu un poco di
hidrogeno sulfurico ainda presente y
ta forma gas sulfurico. Ora e worde
fria, e gas ta bira casi azufre liquido
puro.

En adicion na e valor di e azufre|
mes, sakamento di azufre for di azeta |
mester por trece un mehoranza inci-
dental den atmosfero, pasobra e
hidrogeno sulfurico cu ta worde usa
den e proceso pa saca azufre lo no

fineria hunto cu gas combustible.

Cualkier hidrogeno sulfurico di
mas cu no ta worde usa pa traha
azufre lo worde kima den e planta
nobo pa reduci huma cu a worde re-
cientemente instala na Acid Plant. E
planta aki ta mezcla aire hopi ca-

was given a dollar credit.

This enabled Esso Germany to im-

The Rabbit and the Monkey

Once upon a time, there lived in the mountains a rabbit and a mon-
key, who were great friends. One day, as they sat by the roadside hob-
nobbing together, who should come by but a man with a bamboo pole
over his shoulder, and at each end of the pole was a bundle hung to
a string. There were plantains in one bundle and sugar in the other.

Said the monkey to the rabbit, |}——— a =

took their tolls on the mammoth

inspection at a date earlier than
originally planned. The date of the
inspection was moved up to Jan. 11.

WHILE THOUSANDS of men busied themselves with the processing of

oil Dec. 31, Instrumentman Antero Dykhoff quietly concentrated on a

humanitarian deed. His was the project of repairing a valve on oxygen

bottles used for the San Pedro Hospital incubators. The valve was re-

paired and returned to the hospital — a small deed quietly done in the

heart of the world’s largest refinery as an aid to the community in
which it operates.

Segundo Graciniano Henriquez, one of the first men hired by Lago
in Aruba, died at his Oranjestad home Jan. 4.

With Mr. Henriquez’s death goes one of the men whose spirit, endea-
vor and labor in the early days of oil in Aruba helped build the solid
foundation upon which Lago now stands.

Mr. Henriquez with Hendrick We-





ver, now retired, were among the
first locally hired men. Mr. Henri- Two New Year

Babies Born
At Lago Hospital

With the arrival of the New Year,
two Lago families enjoyed another
type of arrival — the births of a
little boy and little girl.

The Lago Hospital New Year’s
Day births were a baby boy born to
Mr. and Mrs. Felix Hamlet and a

assistant engineer of the Invermira,
a combination tow boat and harbor |
launch; Mr. Wever as captain. Al-|
though the Invermira was the first |
dicsel boat in Aruba, Mr. Henriquez
was a fully competent engineer. A
native Aruban, he had traveled to
other islands where his work brought |
him in contact with diesel engines. |

Shortly after Mr. Henriquez’s start |
with the company he was made chief
the first

engineer. He thus became baby girl born to Mr. and Mrs. Eloi-

During the Twenties, the Inver-

acted as a sea-to-shore contact be-

arriving when 1954 was only four

man baby arrived at 2:25 the after-

Sulphur From Oil

new system to convert worthless by-
product into valuable basic chemical

natural sulphur were discovered in huge underground "dc
in Texas and Louisiana. A novel method, called the F
process, was developed for bringing the sulphur to the surf:

The method is based on the fact that elemental sulphur
melts at about 250°F. Wells are drilled into the de posits.
Superheated steam is pumped down and the melted sulphur
forced up other pipes by compressed air. The sulphur comes
to the surface as a hot frothy amber liquid. Cooled in huge
vats, it solidifies into nearly pure sulphur. Nowhere else does
it occur in this form.









With this cheap, easy-to-use supply of nearly pure sulphur,
more and more of the world’s industries turned to the U.S.
for sulphur. Meanwhile the demand for sulphur
astronomical proportions as new proc
and sulphuric acid were developed and
everything expanded enormously

Unfortunately, the supply is not unlimited, and in 1951
the United States government had to curtail exports and take
steps at home to conserve her supplies of this vital mineral.
That same year the U.S. produced 95 per cent of all the
pure sulphur consumed in the world... a whopping 6-million
tons.

Gf sulphur, for — short of completely redesig-
ning their factories and methods — they could not get along

without it. Some old users went back to pyrites and anhy-
drite, others developed new facilities to meet at least part
of their demand. The recovery of spent oxides from gas works
was stepped up. Used acid was recovered in increasing quan-
tities. Rigid economy was f ticed by all consumers.

The situation is still far from satisfactory, but industrial
ers hope that the various steps taken on a world-wide
s — plus the recent discovery of new in Loui-
siana — will soon overcome the sulphur shortage.

Until a few years ago it seemed that there was little the
oil industry could do to ease the sulphur shortage. The oil
industry is a heavy user of sulphur. In 1952, for example,
Lago consumed 22,000,000 pounds of raw sulphur plus 400
carboys of imported high quality sulphurie acid containing
230 pounds each.

Lago is able to recover a large part of the acid used in
processing oil, but fresh sulphuric acid has to be added to
replace the amount that is inevitably used up. Lago makes
its own sulphuric acid from imported sulphur and for 25 years
has maintained a huge sulphur pile r the Acid Plant for
this purpose. So it is that oil literz eats up” thousands
of tons of sulphur each year.

It has long been known that crude petroleum contains
sulphur, but until recently the petroleum industry has been

hydrogen sulfide.

The process that will be used at Lago for extracting sulphur
from fuel gas has five major stages. Fuel gas on its way
to the furnaces is “scrubbed” with diethanolamine (DEA)
which absorbs the hydrogen sulfide. The diethanolamine so-
lution containing the absorbed hydrogen sulfide is then heated.
This rel s the hydrogen sulfide. The diethanolamine is
collected and pumped back to the absorber where it is used
over and over again. The hydrogen sulfide is piped to the
Acid Plant where it will be burned with a controlled
amount of air in the Sulphur Plant now under construction.

When the hydrogen sulfide is burned it forms sulphur
dioxide which readily combines with some of the hydrogen
sulfide still present to form sulphur vapor. When cooled, the
vapor becomes nearly pure liquid sulphur.

In addition to the value of the sulphur itself, recovery of
sulphur from oil should bring an incidental improvement in
the atmosphere because the hydrogen sulfide used in the
sulphur recovery process will no longer be burned in refinery
furnaces along with the fuel gas.

















Any excess hydrogen sulfide not used to make sulphur will
be burned in the new fume abatement unit recently installed
at the Acid Plant. This unit mixes extremely hot air

2700°F to 2800°F — with sulphur compounds in a mixing
chamber where acid-forming gases are converted to harmless
compounds.





Production of sulphur from fuel ga

35 tons per day at Lago which should be adequate for normal
demands. On occasion, the combined facilities will produce as
much as 40 tons per day and the exe sulphur will be stored
for use when the sulphur-producing units are down for repairs.
While sulphur still must be removed from petroleum pro-
ducts it is no longer a worthyess by-product. Instead, it has
become a profitable source o. much needed basic chemical.

mundial di tur cos a aumenta enor-

Inafortunadamente, e cantidad di e
producto aki ta limita, y na 1951 Go- |
bierno di Estados Unidos mester a
reduci exportacion di azufre y tuma
medida den e pais pa conserva e mi-
neral vital aki. mes anja, Estados
Unidos a produci 95% di tur azufre |
puro cu ta worde usa ariba henter |
mundo... un cantidad colosal di 6
million ton.

Segun e cantidad di azufre cu
Estados Unidos tabata bende tabata
reduci, industrianan a cuminza bus-
sobra — si nan no por cambia nan
fabrica y metodonan henteramente — |
man no por sigui sin dje. Algun di e
industrianan a bolbe usa ”pyrites” y|
“anhydrite”, otronan a desarolla otro
facilidadnan pa haya e minimo can-
‘tidad di azufre cu nan mester. E re-
cobramento di oxides” cu ta bai per-
di for di plantanan di gas a worde |
aumenta. Acido usa tabata worde |
recobra na mas cantidad. Economia |
severo tabata practica door di tur cu
tabata usa azufre. E situacion ainda
ta leuw di ta satisfactorio, pero lider-
nan industrial ta spera cu e varios |
medidanan tuma ariba henter mundo |
— ademas di e reciente descubrimen- |
to di "koepelnan” nobo na Louisia- |
na — pronto lo vence e scarcedad di |
azufre.

Te algun anja pasa, tabata parce |
cu industria di azeta por haci masha
poco pa alivia e scarcedad di azufre. |
Industria petrolera ta un di e mayor |}
“Susadornan di azufre. Na 1952, por|
ehempel, Lago a usa 22,000,000 liber |
di azufre bruto y ademas 20,000 botter
grandi di acido sulfurico di calidad
halto cu a worde importa y ta con-
tene 230 liber cada uno. Lago ta na
pPosicion pa recobra un gran canti-|











dad di e acido usa den refinamento
di azeta, pero acido sulfurico fresco
mester worde agregaé pa reemplaza
e cantidad cu inevitablemente ta
worde usa. Lago ta traha su mes
acido sulfurico for di azufre importa
y a mantene un monton grandi_ di

‘azufre cerca di Acid Plant pa e ob-

heto aki. Asina ta, cu azeta en ber-
dad ta "come” miles di ton di azufre
pa anja.

Desde hopi tempo tabata conoci
cu petroleo crudo ta contene azufre,
pero ta solamente poco tempo pasa!
cu industria petrolera tabata interesa
di sake’le afor. Si azufre drenta den
motor y partinan di mashin cu ta
usa productonan manera azeta, ga-
soline y grease, e por causa danjo,
reduci e efecto di ’tetra-ethyl lead”
y causa olor cu ta reduci bende di e|
producto. (Hasta na mercado di ga-|
solin cu octano halto azufre ta mes-
cos cu un diablo!) |

Pe e azufre den azeta crudo|
treci for di Venezuela ta worde re-
fina y saca afor y benta afor hunto
cu otro productonan sin valor. E
azufre no tabata worde recobra pa-
sobra e tabata mas barata y facil pa
haya for di otro fuente. Awor cu de- |
manda ta asina grandi y prijsnan ta |
halzando, e situacion a cambia. Awor,
azeta por worde usa probechosamente
como un fuente pa saca azufre.

Luna p construccion a cuminza
na Lago ariba un Purificador di Gas
Combustible (Fuel Gas). Ora e ta
cla, lo e ta parti di un grupo exten-
sivo di instalacion pa saka azufre for
di azeta. Refinamento di azeta crudo
ta resulta den produccion di algun
gas cu no por worde traha na pro-
ductonan bendible, pero cu ta worde
colecta y kima como combustible den
fornonan den refine E gasnan
combustible aki ta contene un canti-
dad considerable di hidrogeno sulfu-
rico.





















E preceso cu lo worde usa na Lago |
pa extrae azufre for di gas com-|
bustible ariba su camina pa e forno-
nan ta worde "’purifica” cu "dietha-
nolamine” (DEA), cual ta absorba e

hidrogeno sulfurico. E solucion di
“diethanolamine” cu ta contene e|
hidrogeno sulfurico absorba den dj

aki ta saca afor e hidrogeno sulfuri-
co. E “diethanolamine” ta worde re
cogi y gepomp back pa e absorber’ |
unda e ta worde usa di nobo atrobe.
E hidrogeno sulfurico ta worde man-
da den tubo pa Acid Plant unda e ta
worde kima cu un cierto cantidad di
aire den Planta di Azufre cu ta bao}
di construccion awor. |

Ora e hidrogeno sulfurico ta worde |
kima e ta forma i
cual unbez ta mezcla cu un poco di
hidrogeno sulfurico ainda presente y

The Rabbit and the Monkey

Once upon a time, there lived in the mountains a rabbit and a mon-
key, who were great friends. One day, as they sat by the roadside hob-
nobbing together, who should come by but a man with a bamboo pole
over his shoulder, and at each end of the pole was a bundle hung to
a string. There were plantains in one bundle and sugar in the other.

Said the monkey to the rabbit, |}——— a =

During the German _ occupation
Plesman was imprisoned at Scheve-

for the reconstruction of his ecom-
