Dangerous Arm Rest

Habits make up many of the daily actions of most people. These
habits developed by all of us result in doing something spontaneous —
completing an act without even thinking about it. Shoes are tied,
shirts are buttoned, paths are travelled without any concentrated
thought. These and many other habits are commonplace and insigni-
ficant. They can cause no harm,

There are other habits, however, that are commonplace, but not so
insignificant. They are the type that can harm, High on the list of
habits that can result in injury is the resting of an arm on the window
sill of a car.

A very common habit. The aver- |
age driver and passenger rests his |
arm on the window without
the slightest thought of harm re-
sulting from such an insignificant
practice. Yet many persons have |
suffered arm injuries of minor
nature to multiple breaks and loss
of limb as a result of this seem-
ingly harmless practice.

Five persons rested firm, strong
arms on the window sills of their |
cars. Mishaps followed in each case |
and five broken arms found their
way to Lago Hospital for repair.
Had these inside the
car instead of out, they would not
have been injured. |

This Can Result
man was teaching his son how to drive. The young man learning

to drive brushed a tree. His father attempted to fend off the tree with |
his arm. The tree didn’t move, but the father ended up with a broken |

arm. Three of the broken arm cases resulted from car accidents. Again,
however, had these arms been inside the protection of the car’s body,
they would not have been broken.

Then there was the man whose arm was broken in five places by a
burro — the animal so often seen by the side of the road. This gentle-
man was driving along slowly, resting his arm on the window sill. Two
burros charged across the road at his car. One of them suddenly
reared up and brought his hoofs down on the sill of the car exactly
where this driver rested his arm. The arm was broken in five places.
Tf it had been inside the
the burro made its unpredictable leap.



Arms on window sills resulted in five broken limbs in four months. |

There have been many others — all because of a habit that seems
very harmless, but actually isn’t. It’s difficult to discontinue some-
thing done by habit — like the fellow who dangled his cast-enclosed
right arm out a car window.

It’s a habit hard to break, but better you break the habit than have
the habit break your arm.

Costumber Peligroso

Costumber ta forma hopi di e accionnan diario di mayoria hende. E
‘costumbernan cu nos tur ta pega cu ne ta resulta den hacimento di
un cos espontaneo — haci sin pensa mes ariba dje. Zapato ta worde
mara, camisa ta worde botona, hende ta camna bai un camina sin con-
centra pensamento. Esakinan y hopi otro costumbernan ta ordinario
y insignificante. Nan no ta causa danjo.

Sinembargo, tin otro costumbernan, cu ta ordinario tambe, pero no
asina insignificante. Nan ta di e sorto cu por haci danjo. Halto ariba
e lista di costumbernan cu por resulta den desgracia ta ponemento di
braza ariba porta di auto.

Un costumber masha ordinario. Casi tur chauffeur y pasahero ta |

pone nan braza ariba e porta sin e minimo pensamento cu esaki por
causa un desgracia. Toch hopi hende a haya herida chikito te kibra-
mento di braza na diferente lugar y perdida di braza como resultado
di.e practico aki.

Cinco persona a leun brazanan firme ariba porta di nan auto. Den
cada caso tabatin desgracia y cinco braza kibra a yega Lago Hospital
pa drecha. Si e brazanan aki tabata paden di auto en vez di pafor, nan
lo no a kibra.

Lago Departments
Help Save Boat

Lago’s Marine and Mechanical
Departments combined forces late
last month to help two fishermen

whose boat, trapped by wind and tide,
was unable to come about and went
aground on the reef off the Little
Lagoon.

When a Marine Department tug
could not get near enough to put a
line aboard the sail boat the morning
of Jan. 25, a Mechanical Department
bull-dozer winched the craft ashore
on the Little Lagoon.

N AUG. 31, 1927, a young man balanced a camera

on a tripod atop a 50,000 gallon water tank
located across the road from the present Paint Shop,
took nine pictures while swinging his camera in a
full circle and came up with the panoramic picture
reproduced on these pages.

Twenty-seven years later another young man went
up in an airplane, stuck a camera through a window
and took the picture at right. In the years between
the largest refinery in operation in the world today
had risen on the coral of Aruba.



When the panorama was shot the decision to turn
a crude oil trans-shipment station operated here by
the Lago Petroleum Co. into a refinery had already
been made. Six months later the first construction
crews arrived and what was to become the Lago Oil
and Transport Co., Ltd., was underway.

What they and subsequent builders created is
shown in the aerial photo. What they started with is
shown in the panoramic view which starts in the
west in the upper left-hand corner, swings through
the north, east and south and comes full-circle to the
west in the lower right-hand corner.

Three years before the young man clambered atop
the water tower the Standard Oil Co. of Indiana,
seeking a deep-water port for crude-carrying ships
which could not cross the Maracaibo Bar, decided to
set up a transshipment station at San Nicolas
harbor.

Shallow-draught tankers would pick up the crude
inside Lake Maracaibo and haul it to San Nicolas
where it would be pumped into shore tanks and then
reloaded into ocean-going tankers.

One of the first men sent to Aruba to help set up
the trans-shipment station was Ralph Watson, now
head of Receiving and Shipping. In 1925 he and
Frank Levitt arrived to survey the harbor and direct
the dredging of a channel through the reef.

While the present East Entrance was being cut
the tanks and lines were being installed ashore. By
the time the panorama was taken the station was in
full operation, receiving crude from Venezuela and
reloading it into ocean-going tankers.

The vessels tied up at the old T-dock in the upper
left-hand picture. They were shepherded to their
berths by the present tug ’’Delaplaine,’’ shown on
the sea-side at the center of the dock and an ocean-
going tug pictured astern. At lower left is the first
company dispensary.

At the head of the T-Dock — where the Receiving
and Shipping office is now located — may be seen
the foundation of a building to be used by the
Marine Department.

The building split by the first and second photos
is the now-famous "White House,” once a country

home of the Eman family, later a store and still later
a headquarters for Mr. Watson and Mr. Levitt.

Behind it rises the first Marine Building and in
the background — between it and the tanks to the
right — is the first storehouse. The large tank is
one of seven in which crude was stored. The smaller
tank held bunkers for the tankers. The vari-colored
houses of San Nicolas are seen farther back.



Today the area encompassed by the first and
second sections of the panorama contains the No. 4
Finger Pier, Reef Docks, Butterworth Dock, Dry
Dock, Marine Office and other Marine Department
facilities; the Acid and Edeleanu Plant, the Foun-
dry, the Commissary Cold Storage Warehouse and
the new Dispensary.



In sections three, four and five which lie north-
east, north and northwest of the camera location

appear the six other tanks which made up the sto- |

rage facilities of the old Lago Petroleum Co. In the
foreground of section five may be seen the top of
the smokestacks of the first powerhouse.



Today this sector is still primarily given over to
oil storage though the right hand area of section
five and all of section six are today the main still
area. The road running from section five northeast
into section six once led from the phospate mines to

the harbor. Part of it is still used today around the *

Tank Farm to San Nicolas.

In the foreground of section seven appears the
roof of the home in which Capt. Robert Rodger, who
directed Lago’s first operation, set up his living
quarters and office. Just beyond it is the first
bungalow Lago built at Aruba and the frames of
four other bungalows being constructed for married
supervisors.

Next to the last bungalow under construction is
the first dining hall and beyond that is the bungalow
which housed the family of the Chicago Bridge Co.
supervisor who directed construction of the tanks.



Capt. Rodger’s house later became the E
Office and the site is now lost somewhere in the
east end of the Main Shops.

As the camera swung around to the south it picked
up two United Dredging Co. dredges scooping out
the East Entrance by which ships both came into
and left harbor. The West Entrance was opened
later and today ships generally enter the harbor
through this channel, leave by the east.

In section nine the camera comes full circle
showing the eastern end of the T-dock and the old
dredge ’’Canton”. The ’’Canton”, brought to Aruba
from South Carolina, cut the first entrance into the
harbor. It was the last job the dredge was ever to do
and it was abandoned here.

ARUBA ESSO NEW







THE 1954 version of much of the area shown in the panoramic scene
top and bottom of this page is dotted with tanks and refinery units as
shown in the above photograph. What was onee a small harbor sur-
rounded by coral, sand and cactus is now one of the busiest harbors in
the world surrounded by units, pipes, shops, offices and tanks of the
largest operating refinery in the wor!d. Jan. 29 Lago passed the quarter-
century mark in refining. The panoramic scene shows the beginning
of development that two years later culminated in Lago officially
going ’on Stream.” The aerial photograph of Lago today was taken
from the area north of the refinery.

That's The Question
\ WHAT Most People Ask
e When They See
These Photos

One popular party past-time going the rounds these days is a game
called "A What?” Players need good coordination, a good memory and
a head they can snap back and forth as they ask the questions and give
the answers.

In the game the players sit in a circle and pass two or more objects
in opposite directions. One might be a matchbox which the first player,
passing it to the second, says, ’This is an elephant.”

"A what?” the second player asks.

Player No. 1 repeats, “This is an elephant” and hands the matchbox
to Player No. 2 who then goes through the same procedure with Player
No. 3. Making the circle in the other direction might be a shoe which is
described as a "gnat.”

The high point of the game is when the two objects pass each other
and the players are forced to rattle off, while handing the objects back
and forth, ’This is an elephant. A what? A gnat. This is a what?”

These pictures of familiar objects, magnified about 10 times, might
well qualify as "A whats?” J. N. Ehret of Colony Zone who took them
said that’s the question he usually gets when he explains what they are.
What they are is explained on page 8.

After 36 Years



Aruba’s First Football Team

Greets Coach,

Aruba’s first football coach re-
turned here after a 36-year absen-
ce February 5 and was greeted by
remaining members of his old-time
team. Reverend Emeritus G. J.
Eybers came to Aruba in 1908 as
minister for the Dutch Reform
Church. While here he was active in
many community activities and when
he left in 1918 to fill religious posts
in other parts of the world he left
a host of friends who never
forgotten him.

The group of athletes he left behind
gradually scattered. S of them
went to South Ameri Curacao, the
U.S. Some have died. Six remain in
Aruba to this day, however, where
they have become prominent citizens
in business, government and the pro-
fessions.

Dangerous Arm Rest

Habits make up many of the daily actions of most people. These
habits developed by all of us result in doing something spontaneous —
completing an act without even thinking about it. Shoes are tied,
shirts are buttoned, paths are travelled without any concentrated
thought. These and many other habits are commonplace and insigni-
ficant. They can cause no harm,

There are other habits, however, that are commonplace, but not so
insignificant. They are the type that can harm, High on the list of
habits that can result in injury is the resting of an arm on the window
sill of a car.

A very common habit. The aver- |
age driver and passenger rests his |
arm on the window without
the slightest thought of harm re-
sulting from such an insignificant
practice. Yet many persons have |
suffered arm injuries of minor
nature to multiple breaks and loss
of limb as a result of this seem-
ingly harmless practice.

Five persons rested firm, strong
arms on the window sills of their |
cars. Mishaps followed in each case |
and five broken arms found their
way to Lago Hospital for repair.
Had these inside the
car instead of out, they would not
have been injured. |

This Can Result
man was teaching his son how to drive. The young man learning

to drive brushed a tree. His father attempted to fend off the tree with |
his arm. The tree didn’t move, but the father ended up with a broken |

arm. Three of the broken arm cases resulted from car accidents. Again,
however, had these arms been inside the protection of the car’s body,
they would not have been broken.

Then there was the man whose arm was broken in five places by a
burro — the animal so often seen by the side of the road. This gentle-
man was driving along slowly, resting his arm on the window sill. Two
burros charged across the road at his car. One of them suddenly
reared up and brought his hoofs down on the sill of the car exactly
where this driver rested his arm. The arm was broken in five places.
Tf it had been inside the
the burro made its unpredictable leap.



Arms on window sills resulted in five broken limbs in four months. |

There have been many others — all because of a habit that seems
very harmless, but actually isn’t. It’s difficult to discontinue some-
thing done by habit — like the fellow who dangled his cast-enclosed
right arm out a car window.

It’s a habit hard to break, but better you break the habit than have
the habit break your arm.

Costumber Peligroso

Costumber ta forma hopi di e accionnan diario di mayoria hende. E
‘costumbernan cu nos tur ta pega cu ne ta resulta den hacimento di
un cos espontaneo — haci sin pensa mes ariba dje. Zapato ta worde

y insignificante. Nan no ta causa danjo.

Sinembargo, tin otro costumbernan, cu ta ordinario tambe, pero no
asina insignificante. Nan ta di e sorto cu por haci danjo. Halto ariba
e lista di costumbernan cu por resulta den desgracia ta ponemento di

Help Save Boat

Lago’s Marine and Mechanical

last month to help two fishermen

whose boat, trapped by wind and tide,

aground on the reef off the Little

When a Marine Department tug
could not get near enough to put a
line aboard the sail boat the morning
of Jan. 25, a Mechanical Department

on the Little Lagoon.

N AUG. 31, 1927, a young man balanced a camera

on a tripod atop a 50,000 gallon water tank
located across the road from the present Paint Shop,
took nine pictures while swinging his camera in a
full circle and came up with the panoramic picture
reproduced on these pages.

Twenty-seven years later another young man went
up in an airplane, stuck a camera through a window
and took the picture at right. In the years between
the largest refinery in operation in the world today
had risen on the coral of Aruba.



When the panorama was shot the decision to turn
a crude oil trans-shipment station operated here by
the Lago Petroleum Co. into a refinery had already
been made. Six months later the first construction
crews arrived and what was to become the Lago Oil
and Transport Co., Ltd., was underway.

What they and subsequent builders created is
shown in the aerial photo. What they started with is
shown in the panoramic view which starts in the
west in the upper left-hand corner, swings through
the north, east and south and comes full-circle to the
west in the lower right-hand corner.

Three years before the young man clambered atop
the water tower the Standard Oil Co. of Indiana,
seeking a deep-water port for crude-carrying ships
which could not cross the Maracaibo Bar, decided to
set up a transshipment station at San Nicolas
harbor.

Shallow-draught tankers would pick up the crude
inside Lake Maracaibo and haul it to San Nicolas
where it would be pumped into shore tanks and then
reloaded into ocean-going tankers.

One of the first men sent to Aruba to help set up
the trans-shipment station was Ralph Watson, now
head of Receiving and Shipping. In 1925 he and
Frank Levitt arrived to survey the harbor and direct
the dredging of a channel through the reef.

While the present East Entrance was being cut
the tanks and lines were being installed ashore. By
the time the panorama was taken the station was in
full operation, receiving crude from Venezuela and
reloading it into ocean-going tankers.

The vessels tied up at the old T-dock in the upper
left-hand picture. They were shepherded to their
berths by the present tug ’’Delaplaine,’’ shown on
the sea-side at the center of the dock and an ocean-
going tug pictured astern. At lower left is the first
company dispensary.

At the head of the T-Dock — where the Receiving
and Shipping office is now located — may be seen
the foundation of a building to be used by the
Marine Department.

The building split by the first and second photos
is the now-famous "White House,” once a country

home of the Eman family, later a store and still later
a headquarters for Mr. Watson and Mr. Levitt.

Behind it rises the first Marine Building and in
the background — between it and the tanks to the
right — is the first storehouse. The large tank is
one of seven in which crude was stored. The smaller
tank held bunkers for the tankers. The vari-colored
houses of San Nicolas are seen farther back.



Today the area encompassed by the first and
second sections of the panorama contains the No. 4
Finger Pier, Reef Docks, Butterworth Dock, Dry
Dock, Marine Office and other Marine Department
facilities; the Acid and Edeleanu Plant, the Foun-
dry, the Commissary Cold Storage Warehouse and
the new Dispensary.



In sections three, four and five which lie north-
east, north and northwest of the camera location

appear the six other tanks which made up the sto- |

rage facilities of the old Lago Petroleum Co. In the
foreground of section five may be seen the top of
the smokestacks of the first powerhouse.



Today this sector is still primarily given over to
oil storage though the right hand area of section
five and all of section six are today the main still
area. The road running from section five northeast
into section six once led from the phospate mines to

the harbor. Part of it is still used today around the *

Tank Farm to San Nicolas.

In the foreground of section seven appears the
roof of the home in which Capt. Robert Rodger, who
directed Lago’s first operation, set up his living
quarters and office. Just beyond it is the first
bungalow Lago built at Aruba and the frames of
four other bungalows being constructed for married
supervisors.

Next to the last bungalow under construction is
the first dining hall and beyond that is the bungalow
which housed the family of the Chicago Bridge Co.
supervisor who directed construction of the tanks.



Capt. Rodger’s house later became the E
Office and the site is now lost somewhere in the
east end of the Main Shops.

As the camera swung around to the south it picked
up two United Dredging Co. dredges scooping out
the East Entrance by which ships both came into
and left harbor. The West Entrance was opened
later and today ships generally enter the harbor
through this channel, leave by the east.

In section nine the camera comes full circle
showing the eastern end of the T-dock and the old
dredge ’’Canton”. The ’’Canton”, brought to Aruba
from South Carolina, cut the first entrance into the
harbor. It was the last job the dredge was ever to do
and it was abandoned here.

ARUBA ESSO NEW







THE 1954 version of much of the area shown in the panoramic scene
top and bottom of this page is dotted with tanks and refinery units as
shown in the above photograph. What was onee a small harbor sur-
rounded by coral, sand and cactus is now one of the busiest harbors in
the world surrounded by units, pipes, shops, offices and tanks of the
largest operating refinery in the wor!d. Jan. 29 Lago passed the quarter-
century mark in refining. The panoramic scene shows the beginning
of development that two years later culminated in Lago officially
going ’on Stream.” The aerial photograph of Lago today was taken
from the area north of the refinery.

That's The Question
\ WHAT Most People Ask
e When They See
These Photos

One popular party past-time going the rounds these days is a game
called "A What?” Players need good coordination, a good memory and
a head they can snap back and forth as they ask the questions and give
the answers.

In the game the players sit in a circle and pass two or more objects
in opposite directions. One might be a matchbox which the first player,
passing it to the second, says, ’This is an elephant.”

"A what?” the second player asks.

Player No. 1 repeats, “This is an elephant” and hands the matchbox
to Player No. 2 who then goes through the same procedure with Player
No. 3. Making the circle in the other direction might be a shoe which is
described as a "gnat.”

The high point of the game is when the two objects pass each other
and the players are forced to rattle off, while handing the objects back
and forth, ’This is an elephant. A what? A gnat. This is a what?”

These pictures of familiar objects, magnified about 10 times, might
well qualify as "A whats?” J. N. Ehret of Colony Zone who took them
said that’s the question he usually gets when he explains what they are.
What they are is explained on page 8.

After 36 Years



Aruba’s First Football Team

Greets Coach,

Aruba’s first football coach re-
turned here after a 36-year absen-
ce February 5 and was greeted by
remaining members of his old-time
team. Reverend Emeritus G. J.
Eybers came to Aruba in 1908 as
minister for the Dutch Reform
Church. While here he was active in
many community activities and when
he left in 1918 to fill religious posts
in other parts of the world he left

to Player No 2 who then goes thiough the same piocedure with Player
No 3 Making the circle in the other dnection might be a shoe which is

and forth This is an elephant A what A gnat This is a what
