BEDECKED with signal pennants fitting the occasion, Lago Barge No. 1 lays alongside the Grace Line’s San-
ta Clara. The passenger-cargo liner received over 4000 barrels of bunkers from the Lago barge marking the
first time a ship of size took on fuel in Oranjestad harbor. The Delaplaine, left, towed the barge to Oranjestad

and back.

the harbor. The Harbor Commission
looked for a good reason why port
traffic was small. Members of the
commission were unanimous in their
feeling that the Oranjestad port
needed bunker facilities,” he said.

The lieutenant governor stated that
the benefits to Aruba were
if an increased number of ships call
here. At this point, Dr. Kwartsz di-
rected his remarks at Lago and e
pressed his sincere gratitude for the
company’s aid in setting up the
facilities.

"Lago is always ready to help pro-
mote activities that will aid the pro-
gress of our community,” he said.

The inauguration ceremonies held
aboard the Santa Clara opened with
O. S. Mingus, Lago general manager,
thanking the Grace Line and Capt.
V. Zernin, the ship’s master, for their

obvious





cooperation. He expressed the hope |

that the new bunkering facilities will
aid Aruba’s maritime traffic.

A. van den Berg, chairman of the
Harbor Commission, lc upon the
new facilities as a "milestone in the
development of the harbor.” Capt.
Zernin and G. Eman, manager of the
Eman Trading Co. also spoke.

The barge was loaded in Lago har-
bor ear in the morning and behind
the Delaplaine was towed to Oranje-
stad and shoved in
the Santa Clara. Hoses were strung
between the two and the
barge pumps went to work loading
4000 barrels of bunkers. The barge
was manned by P. L. Hodge, N.
Croes, V. Arends and L. B. Everon.

A river craft which formerly deli-
vered Esso products throughout New
England, the barge was purchased by
Lago late last year and taken to
New York. There it was fitted with

gress on the job. The classes
evolved into what later became an
intensive four-year vocational school
established to better prepare young
men for their place in the oil world
represented by Lago. Today, this
type of training within the refinery
is no longer ary. Education

150,000 Spectators Watched Contests) Sport Park Plans | Ham’ Here Aided

At Lago Sport Park

If you play most any sport, or
like to watch others who do, chan-
ces are you went to the Lago Sport
Park during 1953 and helped set a
new attendance record there.

If you went to see the cricket
competition, the 1953 Olympiad,
the inter-department football mat-
thes or any of the other athletic
events, you were one of 150,000 per-
sons who sat in the grandstands.

If you went to play football, ten-
nis or any of the half-dozen other
sports on tap at the park, you were
one of 50,000 persons who appeared
on the playing fields.

When the park ope 14 y
ago this month, its primary purpose
was to serve as a playground. Base-
ball diamonds, cricket pitches, foot-
ball fields were laid out for adults.
Swings, ‘jungle jims,’ sand-
piles were put in for children.

True to Lago’s promise, the par
facilities were expanded as the nee
arose. A grandstand was built and
later enlarged. Showers and lockers
were installed. A combination tennis
court - dance floor was built.

At last ’s Queen’s Birthday
Olympiad lights which made the
entire plant available for night-time
use turned on for the first
time. More recently, a trophy and
conference room was constructed.

Lago has spent over Fls. 360,000
In addition it has had such expenses
as Fls. 1000 each month for electri-
city.

It has employed three full-time
and several part-time caretakers who
tend the park and take care of the
wickets, body protectors, footballs
and other sports equipment the park
makes available to players and offi-
cials.

In recent years the company has
annually sponsored three major sport
park events — the Olympiad, the
Lago-Shell Cricket Tournament and 2
special yearly attraction such as the
appearance last November of Con-
tralto Marian Anderson.

Each year the Sport Park Board,
which plans, schedules and directs
sports activities at the park, supplies
such things as two jute mats for
cricket, 36 softball bats, two sets of
basketball nets.

All these expenditures are for the
purpose of providing a place where
Lago employees — and other island
residents may find recreation
either by participating in or watching
sports events.

YOUR FILMS CAREFULLY: Once

BEDECKED with signal pennants fitting the occasion, Lago Barge No. 1 lays alongside the Grace Line’s San-
ta Clara. The passenger-cargo liner received over 4000 barrels of bunkers from the Lago barge marking the
first time a ship of size took on fuel in Oranjestad harbor. The Delaplaine, left, towed the barge to Oranjestad

and back.

looked for a good reason why port
traffic was small. Members of the
commission were unanimous in their
feeling that the Oranjestad port
needed bunker facilities,” he said.

The lieutenant governor stated that
the benefits to Aruba were
if an increased number of ships call
here. At this point, Dr. Kwartsz di-
rected his remarks at Lago and e
pressed his sincere gratitude for the
company’s aid in setting up the
facilities.

"Lago is always ready to help pro-
mote activities that will aid the pro-

The inauguration ceremonies held

O. S. Mingus, Lago general manager,
thanking the Grace Line and Capt.
V. Zernin, the ship’s master, for their

obvious





cooperation. He expressed the hope |

that the new bunkering facilities will
aid Aruba’s maritime traffic.

A. van den Berg, chairman of the
Harbor Commission, lc upon the
new facilities as a "milestone in the
development of the harbor.” Capt.
Zernin and G. Eman, manager of the
Eman Trading Co. also spoke.

The barge was loaded in Lago har-
bor ear in the morning and behind
the Delaplaine was towed to Oranje-
stad and shoved in
the Santa Clara. Hoses were strung
between the two and the
barge pumps went to work loading
4000 barrels of bunkers. The barge
was manned by P. L. Hodge, N.
Croes, V. Arends and L. B. Everon.

A river craft which formerly deli-
vered Esso products throughout New
England, the barge was purchased by
Lago late last year and taken to
New York. There it was fitted with

men for their place in the oil world

type of training within the refinery
is no longer ary. Education

150,000 Spectators Watched Contests) Sport Park Plans | Ham’ Here Aided

At Lago Sport Park

If you play most any sport, or
like to watch others who do, chan-
ces are you went to the Lago Sport
Park during 1953 and helped set a
new attendance record there.

If you went to see the cricket
competition, the 1953 Olympiad,
the inter-department football mat-
thes or any of the other athletic
events, you were one of 150,000 per-
sons who sat in the grandstands.

If you went to play football, ten-
nis or any of the half-dozen other
sports on tap at the park, you were
one of 50,000 persons who appeared
on the playing fields.

When the park ope 14 y
ago this month, its primary purpose
was to serve as a playground. Base-
ball diamonds, cricket pitches, foot-
ball fields were laid out for adults.
Swings, ‘jungle jims,’ sand-
piles were put in for children.

True to Lago’s promise, the par
facilities were expanded as the nee
arose. A grandstand was built and
later enlarged. Showers and lockers
were installed. A combination tennis
court - dance floor was built.

At last ’s Queen’s Birthday
Olympiad lights which made the
entire plant available for night-time
use turned on for the first
time. More recently, a trophy and
conference room was constructed.

Lago has spent over Fls. 360,000
In addition it has had such expenses
as Fls. 1000 each month for electri-
city.

It has employed three full-time
and several part-time caretakers who
tend the park and take care of the
wickets, body protectors, footballs
and other sports equipment the park
makes available to players and offi-
cials.

In recent years the company has
annually sponsored three major sport
park events — the Olympiad, the
Lago-Shell Cricket Tournament and 2
special yearly attraction such as the
appearance last November of Con-
tralto Marian Anderson.

Each year the Sport Park Board,
which plans, schedules and directs
sports activities at the park, supplies
such things as two jute mats for
cricket, 36 softball bats, two sets of
basketball nets.

All these expenditures are for the
purpose of providing a place where
Lago employees — and other island
residents may find recreation
either by participating in or watching
sports events.

handling, plus a little thought in

Always handle your slides by the
edges of the cardboard mount in

Protect your slides from dust.
Dust contains some of the hardest

abrasives known. Finely divided,
usually invisible pieces of silica can
usually be found floating in the air,
even inside the cleanest house. Silica
