‘Cannons Spanish, English

‘Built 1750-1850 For Ships’ Batteries

The cannon taken from the sea
off Indian Head Light last June
were made over 100 years ago
probably in England or Spain, an
official of the United States Army
Ordnance Corps said.

The pieces were discovered by a







group of Explorer Scouts who
were swimming outside the reef on
which the light stands. Four of
the cannon were recovered; threc
measured 32 inches in length and
weighed about 90 pounds each, the
fourth was 49 inches long and

weighed between 700 and 800 pound

Leave Is Set
For Employees
Named Surplus

The elimination of the Lake Fleet,
the proposed shutdown of the Ship-
yard, a planned reduction in other re-
lated operations and a realignnment

of personnel in keeping with a policy




of maximum national employment
will make a number of Lago em-
ployees surplus.

Lago has offered a "lay-off leave
of absence” to these employees. The
"lay-off leave of absence” is a modi-
fication of the company’s existing
lay-off policy

It gives interested employees who

are declared surplus the option of re-
that
ulowance be paid in a lump sum;

questing one-third of their

off
the balance

lay-

in monthly payments up



to a maximum period of one year.
This method of settlement does not
affect the total amount of money paid
under the regular lay-off policy.
For a maximum of 12 months after
the surplus employee elects to exer-
cise the option he will be on a "lay-
off leave of absence” which will en-

title him to certain employee advan-

tages for which he would not be eli-



gible if he did not exercise the option
his
total
allowance payment.
The “lay-off leave of
tion was instituted Sept. 1
scheduled to remain in effect

and terminated employment by

accepting a lump sum lay-off



absence” op-

and is

for one

Quality Livestock |
Arrive in Aruba

Efforts to bring high quality live- |
stock to Aruba reached climax
Sept. 4 when cattle, pigs and a goat
arrived aboard the steamship ”Cha-
ris.”

In the shipment were a ‘pedigree
bull and five non-pedigree but excel-
lent milk cows. There three
pigs, all female and all “expecting.”
When born, the shoats will form the
nucleus of Aruba’s first scientifically
raised swine herd.

Most outstanding animal in the
shipment, according to Dr. Sutmoller,
veterinarian in charge, is the goat.
A Saanen buck from Holland, his
mother is reported to have yielded as
much as 1000 litres of milk in one
year. It is hoped the buck will sire
a large family of good milk produ-
cing goats in Aruba.

The animals are at a government
farm set up near Dakota where they

"Early Retirement”
Actually Promotion

Last year the "Esso Aruba” defied
the Esso News by returning to Arv-
ba as the "Captain John” after the
News, in a story on the ship’s retire-
ment from the Esso fleet, said the
aging vessel "sailed out of San Nico-
las harbor, never to return.”

This year it is Hendrick van den
Arend of Catalytic and Light Ends.
The last issue of the Esso News said
he retired Aug. 7 after nearly 23
years of service.

Scorning the Esso News, Mr. van
den Arend not only has not retired,
he’s stepped into a better job.

Last month, despite the Esso News’
attempts to retire him, Mr. van den
Arend was promoted to shift fore-
man. Each News staff member has
written 500 times, "I will read pro-
motion reports more carefully.”

Refinery Astounds Most Visitors

"When can we see a unit come

“How do they keep the

"Where is the oil?” a young

These are some of the typical

Mr. Luydens, who has
shepherding members of
employees’ and other
visitors around the refinery since
the tours began 20 months ago,
has his answers ready.

He explains that a unit which

In answering the visitors’ que-

years of service with Lago and
the ability to speak Papiamentu,

An old lady summed it up
for Mr. Luydens when she said,

"On the tour, they have a

children, particularly the boys,
get into some pretty hot argu-

Mr. Luydens laughed.

Many visitors are surprised at
the few workers visible and ask,
"Where are the 7000 employees ?”
Mr. Luydens that the
working force is divided into three
shifts and that the size of the re-
finery makes it appear that the
shift at work is much smaller than

The Family Tour Program,
started in December, 1952, has
taken over 8900 members of em-
ployces families through the re-
finery. Every family has been

invited and today some are making
the trip for the second time.

The tour has become so popular
among island residents that many
— expecting an off-island guest —

slowly or not at all. The steel is the
anode, the brass the cathode.

If, however, the connection between
the steel and the brass is broken and
the carbon steel is connected by the |

will flow the other way. Now the
electricity will flow through the wire
from the steel to the magnesium and
through the sea water from the

system is nearly complete and will
work without fail if properly installed
and serviced. For success, the system
depends upon the direction of current
flow, and as this always takes place
in the direction for any two
given metals it can be predicted. All|
that is necessary is to choose a metal
for the anode that will be inexpensive
and easy to replace.

At Lago’s No. 2 Fingerpier, for
example, there is a rectifier — to}

change alternating current, like that
used in homes and offices, into direct

current, like that used in automo-

cylinders of graphite.

the graphite cylinders act as the
anodes and the impressed current
from the rectifier maintains suffi-
cient flow of electricity to protect

the steel.

Under this system it would be dif-
ficult to tell precisely how much cur-
rent is needed to protect the steel if
it not for another trick of
nature known to electricians po-

This "searching” causes the electri-

areas and give protection to a larger
area of the pier than might otherwise
be expected. Meanwhile, wherever the

To reduce the costs of operating
stem it is desirable to avoid
excessive over-protection. Experience
shows that a _ potential difference
between steel and sea water of 0.9
to 1.25 volts will give adequate pro-
tection to the steel.

One more factor involved in the
use of electricity to protect under-
water steel is that various forms of
calcium are deposited by the sea-
water on the steel. This ”calcerous
deposit” acts in much the same way
as the film of hydrogen in that it
gives added protection.

The calcium coating and the film
of hydrogen may protect the steel for
hours even days after the flow
of current stopped. Therefore,
equipment failures within the system
aren’t likely to cause harm. The job
of applying electricity to the pro-
tection of steel, however, is not a job
for the uninitiated.

At a construction site in the U.S.
a few years ago the engineers de-

| cided to apply cathodic protection to
|some an underground pipe-line. The

equipment was installed and the man
in charge turned it on. About six
week later the boss went to inspect
the system. He found that the wires
from the rectifier were crossed. What
should have been the anode was the
cathode and in the space of a few
weeks a half million dollars worth of

steel had corroded into the ground
It is said that the electrician who

hooked up the wires got a talking to.

of absence” to these employees. The
"lay-off leave of absence” is a modi-
fication of the company’s existing
lay-off policy

It gives interested employees who

are declared surplus the option of re-
that
ulowance be paid in a lump sum;

questing one-third of their

off
the balance

lay-

in monthly payments up



to a maximum period of one year.
This method of settlement does not
affect the total amount of money paid
under the regular lay-off policy.
For a maximum of 12 months after
the surplus employee elects to exer-
cise the option he will be on a "lay-
off leave of absence” which will en-

title him to certain employee advan-

tages for which he would not be eli-



gible if he did not exercise the option
his
total
allowance payment.
The “lay-off leave of
tion was instituted Sept. 1
scheduled to remain in effect

and terminated employment by

accepting a lump sum lay-off



absence” op-

and is

for one

Quality Livestock |
Arrive in Aruba

Efforts to bring high quality live- |
stock to Aruba reached climax
Sept. 4 when cattle, pigs and a goat
arrived aboard the steamship ”Cha-
ris.”

In the shipment were a ‘pedigree
bull and five non-pedigree but excel-
lent milk cows. There three
pigs, all female and all “expecting.”
When born, the shoats will form the
nucleus of Aruba’s first scientifically
raised swine herd.

Most outstanding animal in the
shipment, according to Dr. Sutmoller,
veterinarian in charge, is the goat.
A Saanen buck from Holland, his
mother is reported to have yielded as
much as 1000 litres of milk in one
year. It is hoped the buck will sire
a large family of good milk produ-
cing goats in Aruba.

The animals are at a government
farm set up near Dakota where they

"Early Retirement”
Actually Promotion

Last year the "Esso Aruba” defied
the Esso News by returning to Arv-
ba as the "Captain John” after the
News, in a story on the ship’s retire-
ment from the Esso fleet, said the
aging vessel "sailed out of San Nico-
las harbor, never to return.”

This year it is Hendrick van den
Arend of Catalytic and Light Ends.
The last issue of the Esso News said
he retired Aug. 7 after nearly 23
years of service.

Scorning the Esso News, Mr. van
den Arend not only has not retired,
he’s stepped into a better job.

Last month, despite the Esso News’
attempts to retire him, Mr. van den
Arend was promoted to shift fore-
man. Each News staff member has
written 500 times, "I will read pro-
motion reports more carefully.”

An old lady summed it up
for Mr. Luydens when she said,
"T’ve lived in Aruba all my life

being in a strange country.”

The refinery'’s mechanized equip-

their husbands, fathers, brothers

"On the tour, they have a

chance to see for themselves. The

children, particularly the boys,
get into some pretty hot argu-
ments about whose father’s de-

partment is the most important,”
Mr. Luydens laughed.

Many visitors are surprised at
the few workers visible and ask,
"Where are the 7000 employees ?”
Mr. Luydens that the
working force is divided into three
shifts and that the size of the re-
finery makes it appear that the
shift at work is much smaller than

The Family Tour Program,
started in December, 1952, has
taken over 8900 members of em-
ployces families through the re-
finery. Every family has been

invited and today some are making
the trip for the second time.

The tour has become so popular
among island residents that many
— expecting an off-island guest —

for the anode that will be inexpensive

An impressed



current of three to 12 milliamperes
(ess than enough to light a small
flashlight) is enough current to pro-





tect a square foot of carbon steel
immersed in seawater.

At Lago’s No. 2 Fingerpier, for
example, there is a rectifier — to}

change alternating current, like that
used in homes and offices, into direct

current, like that used in automo-
biles plus a series of wires and
cylinders of graphite.

The negative wire from the recti-
fier is hooked to the steel of the pier

the graphite cylinders act as the
anodes and the impressed current
from the rectifier maintains suffi-
cient flow of electricity to protect

the steel.

Under this system it would be dif-
ficult to tell precisely how much cur-
rent is needed to protect the steel if
it not for another trick of
nature known to electricians po-

This "searching” causes the electri-
city to spread out to unpolarized
areas and give protection to a larger
area of the pier than might otherwise
be expected. Meanwhile, wherever the

To reduce the costs of operating
stem it is desirable to avoid
excessive over-protection. Experience
shows that a _ potential difference
between steel and sea water of 0.9
to 1.25 volts will give adequate pro-
tection to the steel.

One more factor involved in the
use of electricity to protect under-
water steel is that various forms of
calcium are deposited by the sea-
water on the steel. This ”calcerous
deposit” acts in much the same way
as the film of hydrogen in that it
gives added protection.

The calcium coating and the film
of hydrogen may protect the steel for
hours even days after the flow
of current stopped. Therefore,
equipment failures within the system
aren’t likely to cause harm. The job
of applying electricity to the pro-
tection of steel, however, is not a job
for the uninitiated.

At a construction site in the U.S.
a few years ago the engineers de-

| cided to apply cathodic protection to
|some an underground pipe-line. The

equipment was installed and the man
in charge turned it on. About six
week later the boss went to inspect
the system. He found that the wires
from the rectifier were crossed. What
should have been the anode was the
cathode and in the space of a few
weeks a half million dollars worth of

steel had corroded into the ground
It is said that the electrician who

hooked up the wires got a talking to.
