Employees Exhibit Courageous Efforts
In Battle To Extinguish Gasoline Dock Fire

The heat from flames which
engulfed Lago’s No. 1 Gasoline
Dock and part of a berthed tanker
the afternoon of Jan. 13 could be
felt 200 yards upwind by the first
squads of trained fire-fighters
who arrived to help battle
holacaust.

The fire-fighters,
throughout the

drawn from
refinery, tumbled
from their trucks and raced out
along the pier toward the blaze.
In the half-light — caused by the
intense billows of black smoke that
covered the area the color of the
flames was intensified. An ominous
orange, they fed on the wood of the
dock and the gasoline and kerosene
that earlier was being pumped aboard
the S.S. Hammersborg.

Some flames belched in sudden
gusts as high as 60 feet, then sub-
sided. Others burned with the steady
roar of a blow-torch. All poured out
acrid smoke which soared into the
air. So high was the temperature
that the steel hose-handling structure
buckled near the bottom and the
unit toppled against the — ship.
Heat-ruptured loading lines leading

their contents to the flames.

critical.

al explosion occurred at
1:10 p.m. while Lago forces were
loading the T-2 type tanker owned
and operated by Johns Hansen
A. S. of Oslo, Norway,
and under charter to the Panama
Transport Company. The 10,172-ton
ship was being loaded with motor
gasoline and kerosene — part of the
seven-product cargo destined for
Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia,
Brazil — when fire broke out. The
fire originated from ignition of ga-
| soline spilled from a pipeline onto the
surface of the water under the dock.
Source of the ignition is not known.
Flames leaped up the hose to the
ship setting portions of the Ham-
mersborg’s port side afire.

Lago for
General Superintendent F. E. Griffin,
quickly swung extensive refinery fire
equipment into action. Water and
foam streams were played into the
roaring inferno. Lago employees —
particularly members of the Yard
group — stood up to the tremendous
heat constantly pressing forward
with their hoses beating the fire
down.

It took the

to conquer the main
fires. Their task was greatly in-
creased as pipe lines to the docks
ruptured under the intense heat and
spilled out their contents of motor
gasoline, kerosene and aviation gaso-

as possible.

As the main fires were brought
under control, the Hammersborg’s

swung out into the harbor on her
head lines. This action was taken to

facilitate the final squelching of fire
on the dock and the tanker.

Just when it appeared that the
situation was under control, a flare
back caused by further spillage from
ruptured lines occurred at 5:30 p.m.
This was quickly extinguished once
the initial wave of flames expended
themselves. With the elimination of
these flames and other open flames
about the dock and ship, the fire
was completely extinguished at
approximately 6 p.m

Throughout the period the Gasoline
Dock was engulfed in flame, fire-
fighting efforts were successfully
carried on from the head of the dock,
from the deck of the Hammersborg,
and from cargo barges maneuvered
into position from the shore side.
Crew members of the Noord, Delap-
laine and Colorado Point sailed their
ships in close where their fire equip-
ment could best be brought into play.

Fire fighting equipment of the
Aruban government quickly appeared
at the head of the gasoline pier and
stood by ready to render assistance.

At the time of the fire’s outbreak,
the S.S. Nyhammer, another Nor-
| wegian tanker, was berthed astern
the Hammersborg. The Nyhammer
was empty — a much more critical
situation than a ship such as the
Hammersborg which was 75 per cent
loaded as the chance of explosion is
greater in an empty ship filled with
fumes than a ship over half loaded
{with light products. With the as-
sistance of the Tocia, tug of the
Royal Netherlands Harbor Works,
Lago tugs pushed the Nyhammer out
San Nicolas Harbor’s West Entrance
to the safety of the open sea.

Anchored at the Reef Dock across
from the Gasoline Dock was the
| Liberian flag ship S.S. North Duke.
| Its captain, G. Sifonios, also seeking
the safety of open water had a
Netherlands pilot sail his ship out
without the aid of tugs.
| The Hammersborg was built in
|1944 in Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A., as
the S.S. Cottonwood. Her master is
S. Hansen and she carries a compli-
ment of 40 men, none of whom were
injured. After the explosion the crew
secured ship and went overboard
— some were picked up by launches,
others swam ashore. Afterwards a
number returned on board to help
fight the fire.

Following the fire, the Hammers-
borg was anchored outside the har-
bor. Last w she was brought back
into the harbor where her cargo was
unloaded. She was then sent to a
Florida shipyard where she will be
given a thorough inspection and re-
paired. While initial damage esti-
mates are approximately Fs. 188,000,
an internal investigation of the ship
in dry dock could disclose structure









damage that would send the total
damage cost higher. The fire raged
alongside the ship’s amidships in-



f ne intense heat in an area cri-
tical in the chip’s overall strength —
an area where tankers have been

known to break apart.

It was pointed out by Lago offi-
cials that refinery operations will not
be curtailed.

It is a privilege to be associat

once again the loyalty demonstrated every day in the operation of the

refinery.



Fire Fight

(Continued from page 1)
the 44-year-old Receiving and Ship-
ping gauger was the only man hospi-
talized.

Mr. Campbell was on the ”Ham-
mersborg’s” deck near the loading
hose when the fire started. Flames
shot up the hose, ignited the area in
which Mr. Campbell was working.
His clothes and hair aflame, he rolled
along the deck to snuff out his
burning clothes. With his hands he
patted out the flames in his burning
hair. Once he had extinguished the
flames about his person, he went
forward since the gangway was cut
off by flames. As he progressed
forward he closed one or more
hatch covers, turned on the fire water
hose lying on the deck and attempted |
to close a kerosene loading line valve. |
His efforts to further thwart con-
flagration aboard the ship were li-
mited by the painful condition of
his burned hands and arms.

Making his way to the starboard
bow of the ship he tied a rope
around his waist and jumped over
the side. In spite of his condition,
he had the presence of mind to put
the rope around his waist in the
event his entry into the water
rendered him unconscious.

After his leap, he was picked up
by the tug ”"Delaplaine,” taken
ashore and to the hospital.

While Mr. Campbell was leaving
the Hammersborg, Lago fire-fighters,
trained for the emergency, unrolled
lengths of hose and coupled them
together. Others fitted the ends to
hydrants and screwed on nozzles. As
the hoses snaked out toward the fire,
men stood at the valves ready to send
foam solutions coursing through the
lines.

Within minutes the fire-fighters |
had manned numerous hoses and
ranged themselves alongside the
wharfingers, policemen, ship crew
members and Receiving and Shipping
supervisors who had brought the
first lines into play minutes before.

To bring additional hoses to bear!
on the flames, some 35 men boarded
a barge and, like a tug-of-war team,
hauled on a hawser to pull the motor-
less barge into position.

Two of Lago’s tugs, the ’Noord”
and the ’Delaplaine,” did yeoman
work. With the help of the Royal
Netherlands Harborworks Co. tug
”Tocia,” they pulled the potentially
dangerous S.S. Nyhammer, anchored
empty, astern and downwind of the
Hammersborg out the West Entrance
to the safety of the open sea.

Later, when the flames had sub-
sided, they swung the burning tanker
away from the dock.

Lago’s launches "backed up” the
tugs. Some members of the ”"Ham-

J. J. HORIGAN

water to escape the flames and the
launchmen picked them up. Then
several launches combined to tow the
tug ”Colorado Point,” immobilized at

the Barge Dock, up to where the |
tug’s fire hoses could reach the |
flames. |

Aboard a launch was H. H. Garig, |
head of the Floating Equipment Di-
vision of the Marine Department and
a one-time ship’s chief engineer. At
the height of the fire he swung from
the launch to a jacob’s ladder at the
stern of the burning tanker. He
clambored up the swaying ladder and
groped his way through the smoke-
filled engine room to turn on the
ship’s steam smothering system. He
found the valves, but there was not
sufficient pressure to activate the
system.

These incidents are typical of the
many in which Lago employees gave
their utmost in the fight to contain
and extinguish the flames. Their
success is measured by the fact that
the No. 2 Gasoline Dock next to the
dock gutted by fire was back in
operation within 48 hours.

the ’Noord.” The tug pushed the
bow of the ”’Hammersborg” away
from the dolphins to which it had
been moored. The ”Noord” helped
head the ship toward the East
Entrance and then, on a signal from
the pilot, a crewman cast loose its |
line.

What happened next is not certain. |
The survivors said the tug was
maneuvering to get away from the
side of the ”Hammersborg” when
water poured aboard and the ”Noord” |
began to sink.

All four men leaped overboard and |
started to swim toward a breakwater
some 100 yards away. Pedro Jansen,
a launchman A and Matias Noguera,
a launchman B, made it. Frederik
Wijnaar, a launchman A in command
of the tug and Paulus van den Berg,

a launchman B, did not.

The body of Mr. van den Berg, who
had over 22 years of service, was
found by a diver the afternoon of
Jan. 21. The body of Mr. Wijnaar,
who had over 17 years of service,
was not found at press time.

The 62-foot, 70-ton, 350-horse-
power ”Noord” was raised the night
of Jan. 19. It suffered only sub-
mersion damage and some _ other
|minor damage as a result of lying
on the bottom and ensuing lifting
operations.

Lago brought in a_ professional
diver from Curacao, Jan Lenderink,
to help with the hunt for the bodies.
Mr. Lenderink was operating with
an aqua-lung when he found Mr. van
der Berg’s body near the spot where

Committee Plans
Better Operation,
Safety Features

The charred timbers and ruptured
pipes which were once Lago’s No. 1
Gasoline Dock had barely cooled after
fire gutted the structure Jan. 13 when
repairmen went to work.

They tore out the hose-handling
tower which had been toppled by the
flames, removed valves whose handles
bent like pretzels under the heat,
ped off the wooden deck planks which
were not consumed and pulied up
pilings that had burned to the water
level.

Then they embarked on a round-
the-clock schedule to get the dock
back into operation. Ahead lay the
task of replacing 50 per cent of the
piling, 75 per cent of the deck plank-
ing and stringers, 1200 feet of load-
ing lines with valves and other acces-
sories, some steel and cement compo-
of the dock
handling structure.

Changes and improvements will be
incorporated in the dock construction.
Legs of the hose-handling structure,
which buckled under the extreme heat
of the fire, will be wrapped in
cement. A platform will run the
length of the land sides of the Nos.
1 and 2 docks to provide greater
cessibility in the event of future fires.
Now that the refinery is producing
its own sulphur, some of the railway
*ks for Ss once used to unload
ships delivering sulphur will not be
replaced.

Other modifications, based on the
recommendations of a committee ap-
pointed to improve the safety and
efficiency of the dock’s operations









and a new hose







| will be included.

The fire, which also damaged the
S.S. Hammersborg as it lay alongside
loading cargo for Brazil, consumed
about 230 feet of the 300-foot long
deck. It did not damage, however, the
steel-and-cement dolphins upon which
the dock is built, nor the mooring
dolphins.

It ruptured some of the loading
lines leading to both gasoline docks,
and damaged others which serve the
three Reef Docks and the Snow Pile
area. The Reef Docks and Snow Pile
were back in service early the next
day; the No. 2 Gasoline Dock
back within 48 hours,

The Mechanical Department, which
is in charge of the reconstruction of
the No. 1 Gasoline Dock, hopes to
have it completed by Feb. 1. All the
work including fabrication of a

was

|new hose-handling tower — is being

done by Lago with the exception of
painting which has been let to an out-
side contractor.

On the 5th day of this month Ber-
nardo E. Croes, 2 subforeman_ in
Mechanical — Pipe, became the first
man to complete 30 years of com-
pany service in Aruba. During those
years Mr. Croes has not had a day
of deductible absence.

In recognition of his 30th anni-
versary, Mr. Croes was invited to an
Executive Committee meeting where
President J. J. Horigan presented a
diamond-studded 30-year button.

In expressing his appreciation, Mr.
Croes spoke for 25 minutes on his
career — first with the Pan-Ameri-
can Petroleum Co., the fore-runner
of Lago and with the company.

Mr. Croes, whose entire service has
been in the Pipe Craft, told of putting
in the first three-inch line on the
island and laying 99 joints in a work-
ing day.

"We tried to make it 100,” he
laughed, "but we never could do it.”
In those early days equipment was
scarce. Mr. Croes said that a pipe-









fitter working on harbor installa-
tions who dropped a nut or bolt in
the water had to dive down and
retrieve it.

He said he was given his first job
by Raiph Watson, Lago’s pioneer
foreign staff employee who retired
last year. On the day he was hired,
Mr. Croes said, he told his wife, ”I’m
going to work for the company for
30 years.” To the committee he said,
"Well, I made it.”

Mr. Croes was first employed by
Pan-American Jan. 5, 1925, and was
retained by Lago in 1928 as a pipe-
fitter. Since then he has had seven
promotions. The last came in 1950
when he was made a subforeman.

The first three week nights of cach week,
145 students wend their way toward the Aruba
Technical School. They form the student body
of Aruba’s first night school open to everyone
on the and.

The desire to learn is
quirement.

This is departure from the ATS night
school’s forerunners. Formerly, only ATS gra-
duates or persons of comparable education had
the ne ry requirements for evening classes.

The move proved to be a popular one. With
desires to prepare for entrance into a trade
career or aiming toward self-betterment in
particular crafts, more men applied for enroll-
ment than could be handled.

On Jan, 10, the night school opened and the
nlarged program headed down its first si

the school’s only re-

| usher in another part of the school year.
New students may enroll at that time and
students now in school will have the opportu-
nity to take advanced cou s using the know-
ledge they will gain during their present
month period.

The courses — of which there are more than
40 to choose from — are planned to fit
vienced craftsmen, beginning craf

active students wishing to take
s of v ng intensity. They a
ed to teach basic skills and to improv
skills. In addition to actual manual practices
an important phase of the Aruba Technical
School night courses is theory.

Hurricane - Hit
Carriacou Sends

Thanks for Help

Carriacou, an agricultural island of
some 12,000 persons near Grenada,
suffered the equivalent of almost
Fls. 45,000 damage when it was
struck by the hurricane Hazel” last |
October.

A group of Aruba residents, mostly
Lago employees, contributed toward
a Carriacou relief fund and recently
received a letter of thanks from N.
Hayling, the district officer and top
government official of the Grenada
dependency.

The letter, addressed to H. David-
son of the Industrial Relations De-
partment who headed the fund drive
here, said:

”T have to acknowledge the receipt |
of your cheque for L 209 17 s. Id
(Fls. 1151), being donations collected
by you from sympathizers toward
the Hurricane Relief of Carriacou.

"On behalf of the Relief Com-
mittee and of the people of Carria-
cou, I wish to thank you with deep
appreciation for the mighty effort |
you, personally, exercised; and the
donors for their kind subscription. I
shall be grateful if you would pass
on such thanks and appreciation to
them.”

championship with a .550 average;
Carmen Hypolyte of Oranjestad Store

and Marlyn Newton of the league-
winning Tropical nine won the most

Employees Exhibit Courageous Efforts
In Battle To Extinguish Gasoline Dock Fire

The heat from flames which
engulfed Lago’s No. 1 Gasoline
Dock and part of a berthed tanker
the afternoon of Jan. 13 could be
felt 200 yards upwind by the first
squads of trained fire-fighters
who arrived to help battle
holacaust.

The fire-fighters,
throughout the

drawn from
refinery, tumbled
from their trucks and raced out
along the pier toward the blaze.
In the half-light — caused by the
intense billows of black smoke that
covered the area the color of the
flames was intensified. An ominous
orange, they fed on the wood of the
dock and the gasoline and kerosene
that earlier was being pumped aboard
the S.S. Hammersborg.

Some flames belched in sudden
gusts as high as 60 feet, then sub-
sided. Others burned with the steady
roar of a blow-torch. All poured out
acrid smoke which soared into the
air. So high was the temperature
that the steel hose-handling structure
buckled near the bottom and the
unit toppled against the — ship.

critical.

al explosion occurred at
1:10 p.m. while Lago forces were
loading the T-2 type tanker owned
and operated by Johns Hansen
A. S. of Oslo, Norway,
and under charter to the Panama
Transport Company. The 10,172-ton
ship was being loaded with motor
gasoline and kerosene — part of the
seven-product cargo destined for
Recife, Rio de Janeiro and Bahia,
Brazil — when fire broke out. The
fire originated from ignition of ga-
| soline spilled from a pipeline onto the
surface of the water under the dock.
Source of the ignition is not known.
Flames leaped up the hose to the
ship setting portions of the Ham-
mersborg’s port side afire.

Lago for
General Superintendent F. E. Griffin,
quickly swung extensive refinery fire
equipment into action. Water and
foam streams were played into the
roaring inferno. Lago employees —
particularly members of the Yard
group — stood up to the tremendous
heat constantly pressing forward
with their hoses beating the fire
down.

It took the

to conquer the main
fires. Their task was greatly in-

spilled out their contents of motor

as possible.

As the main fires were brought
under control, the Hammersborg’s
stern lines were cast off and she was
swung out into the harbor on her
head lines. This action was taken to

under the direction of |

facilitate the final squelching of fire
on the dock and the tanker.

Just when it appeared that the
situation was under control, a flare
back caused by further spillage from
ruptured lines occurred at 5:30 p.m.
This was quickly extinguished once
the initial wave of flames expended
themselves. With the elimination of
these flames and other open flames
about the dock and ship, the fire
was completely extinguished at
approximately 6 p.m

Throughout the period the Gasoline
Dock was engulfed in flame, fire-
fighting efforts were successfully
carried on from the head of the dock,
from the deck of the Hammersborg,
and from cargo barges maneuvered
into position from the shore side.
Crew members of the Noord, Delap-
laine and Colorado Point sailed their
ships in close where their fire equip-
ment could best be brought into play.

Fire fighting equipment of the
Aruban government quickly appeared
at the head of the gasoline pier and
stood by ready to render assistance.

At the time of the fire’s outbreak,
the S.S. Nyhammer, another Nor-
| wegian tanker, was berthed astern
the Hammersborg. The Nyhammer
was empty — a much more critical
situation than a ship such as the
Hammersborg which was 75 per cent
loaded as the chance of explosion is
greater in an empty ship filled with
fumes than a ship over half loaded
{with light products. With the as-
sistance of the Tocia, tug of the
Royal Netherlands Harbor Works,
Lago tugs pushed the Nyhammer out
San Nicolas Harbor’s West Entrance
to the safety of the open sea.

Anchored at the Reef Dock across
from the Gasoline Dock was the
| Liberian flag ship S.S. North Duke.
| Its captain, G. Sifonios, also seeking
the safety of open water had a
Netherlands pilot sail his ship out
without the aid of tugs.
| The Hammersborg was built in
|1944 in Mobile, Alabama, U.S.A., as
the S.S. Cottonwood. Her master is
S. Hansen and she carries a compli-
ment of 40 men, none of whom were
injured. After the explosion the crew
secured ship and went overboard
— some were picked up by launches,
others swam ashore. Afterwards a
number returned on board to help
fight the fire.

Following the fire, the Hammers-
borg was anchored outside the har-
bor. Last w she was brought back
into the harbor where her cargo was
unloaded. She was then sent to a
Florida shipyard where she will be
given a thorough inspection and re-
paired. While initial damage esti-
mates are approximately Fs. 188,000,
an internal investigation of the ship
in dry dock could disclose structure









damage that would send the total
damage cost higher. The fire raged
alongside the ship’s amidships in-



f ne intense heat in an area cri-
tical in the chip’s overall strength —
an area where tankers have been

known to break apart.

It was pointed out by Lago offi-
cials that refinery operations will not
be curtailed.

Fire Fight

(Continued from page 1)
the 44-year-old Receiving and Ship-
ping gauger was the only man hospi-
talized.

Mr. Campbell was on the ”Ham-
mersborg’s” deck near the loading
hose when the fire started. Flames
shot up the hose, ignited the area in
which Mr. Campbell was working.
His clothes and hair aflame, he rolled
along the deck to snuff out his
burning clothes. With his hands he
patted out the flames in his burning
hair. Once he had extinguished the
flames about his person, he went
forward since the gangway was cut
off by flames. As he progressed
forward he closed one or more
hatch covers, turned on the fire water
hose lying on the deck and attempted |
to close a kerosene loading line valve. |
His efforts to further thwart con-
flagration aboard the ship were li-
mited by the painful condition of
his burned hands and arms.

Making his way to the starboard
bow of the ship he tied a rope
around his waist and jumped over
the side. In spite of his condition,
he had the presence of mind to put
the rope around his waist in the
event his entry into the water
rendered him unconscious.

After his leap, he was picked up
by the tug ”"Delaplaine,” taken
ashore and to the hospital.

While Mr. Campbell was leaving
the Hammersborg, Lago fire-fighters,
trained for the emergency, unrolled
lengths of hose and coupled them
together. Others fitted the ends to
hydrants and screwed on nozzles. As
the hoses snaked out toward the fire,
men stood at the valves ready to send
foam solutions coursing through the
lines.

Within minutes the fire-fighters |
had manned numerous hoses and
ranged themselves alongside the
wharfingers, policemen, ship crew
members and Receiving and Shipping
supervisors who had brought the
first lines into play minutes before.

To bring additional hoses to bear!
on the flames, some 35 men boarded
a barge and, like a tug-of-war team,
hauled on a hawser to pull the motor-
less barge into position.

Two of Lago’s tugs, the ’Noord”
and the ’Delaplaine,” did yeoman
work. With the help of the Royal
Netherlands Harborworks Co. tug
”Tocia,” they pulled the potentially
dangerous S.S. Nyhammer, anchored
empty, astern and downwind of the
Hammersborg out the West Entrance
to the safety of the open sea.

Later, when the flames had sub-
sided, they swung the burning tanker
away from the dock.

Lago’s launches "backed up” the
tugs. Some members of the ”"Ham-

J. J. HORIGAN

water to escape the flames and the
launchmen picked them up. Then
several launches combined to tow the
tug ”Colorado Point,” immobilized at

the Barge Dock, up to where the |
tug’s fire hoses could reach the |
flames. |

Aboard a launch was H. H. Garig, |
head of the Floating Equipment Di-
vision of the Marine Department and
a one-time ship’s chief engineer. At
the height of the fire he swung from
the launch to a jacob’s ladder at the
stern of the burning tanker. He
clambored up the swaying ladder and
groped his way through the smoke-
filled engine room to turn on the
ship’s steam smothering system. He
found the valves, but there was not
sufficient pressure to activate the
system.

These incidents are typical of the
many in which Lago employees gave
their utmost in the fight to contain
and extinguish the flames. Their
success is measured by the fact that
the No. 2 Gasoline Dock next to the
dock gutted by fire was back in
operation within 48 hours.

the ’Noord.” The tug pushed the
bow of the ”’Hammersborg” away
from the dolphins to which it had
been moored. The ”Noord” helped
head the ship toward the East
Entrance and then, on a signal from
the pilot, a crewman cast loose its |
line.

What happened next is not certain. |
The survivors said the tug was
maneuvering to get away from the
side of the ”Hammersborg” when
water poured aboard and the ”Noord” |
began to sink.

All four men leaped overboard and |
started to swim toward a breakwater
some 100 yards away. Pedro Jansen,
a launchman A and Matias Noguera,
a launchman B, made it. Frederik
Wijnaar, a launchman A in command
of the tug and Paulus van den Berg,

a launchman B, did not.

The body of Mr. van den Berg, who
had over 22 years of service, was
found by a diver the afternoon of
Jan. 21. The body of Mr. Wijnaar,
who had over 17 years of service,
was not found at press time.

The 62-foot, 70-ton, 350-horse-
power ”Noord” was raised the night
of Jan. 19. It suffered only sub-
mersion damage and some _ other
|minor damage as a result of lying
on the bottom and ensuing lifting
operations.

Lago brought in a_ professional
diver from Curacao, Jan Lenderink,
to help with the hunt for the bodies.
Mr. Lenderink was operating with
an aqua-lung when he found Mr. van
der Berg’s body near the spot where





mersborg’s” crew had taken to the

the tug went down.

Committee Plans
Better Operation,
Safety Features

The charred timbers and ruptured
pipes which were once Lago’s No. 1
Gasoline Dock had barely cooled after
fire gutted the structure Jan. 13 when
repairmen went to work.

They tore out the hose-handling
tower which had been toppled by the
flames, removed valves whose handles
bent like pretzels under the heat,
ped off the wooden deck planks which
were not consumed and pulied up
pilings that had burned to the water
level.

Then they embarked on a round-
the-clock schedule to get the dock
back into operation. Ahead lay the
task of replacing 50 per cent of the
piling, 75 per cent of the deck plank-
ing and stringers, 1200 feet of load-
ing lines with valves and other acces-
sories, some steel and cement compo-
of the dock
handling structure.

Changes and improvements will be
incorporated in the dock construction.
Legs of the hose-handling structure,
which buckled under the extreme heat
of the fire, will be wrapped in
cement. A platform will run the
length of the land sides of the Nos.
1 and 2 docks to provide greater
cessibility in the event of future fires.
Now that the refinery is producing
its own sulphur, some of the railway
*ks for Ss once used to unload
ships delivering sulphur will not be
replaced.

Other modifications, based on the
recommendations of a committee ap-
pointed to improve the safety and
efficiency of the dock’s operations









and a new hose







| will be included.

The fire, which also damaged the
S.S. Hammersborg as it lay alongside
loading cargo for Brazil, consumed
about 230 feet of the 300-foot long
deck. It did not damage, however, the
steel-and-cement dolphins upon which
the dock is built, nor the mooring
dolphins.

It ruptured some of the loading
lines leading to both gasoline docks,
and damaged others which serve the
three Reef Docks and the Snow Pile
area. The Reef Docks and Snow Pile
were back in service early the next
day; the No. 2 Gasoline Dock
back within 48 hours,

The Mechanical Department, which
is in charge of the reconstruction of
the No. 1 Gasoline Dock, hopes to
have it completed by Feb. 1. All the
work including fabrication of a

was

|new hose-handling tower — is being

done by Lago with the exception of
painting which has been let to an out-
side contractor.

Candela Grandi a Destrui
Gasoline Dock Jan. 13

Vilamnan tremende y un monton halto di huma preto, mahos a kibra
serenidad di tramerdia Jan. 13 ora candela a destrui Gasoline Dock di
Lago. Danjo na e haaf y na S.S. Hammersborg, e tanquero Norwega
cu tabata cargando na momento di e candela, a worde calcula ariba

Fls. 500,000.

Un homber, Charles

mester a bai hospital. Sr. Campbell
di 44 anja di edad, un empleado di
Lago pa ultimo 15 anja, a haya ki-
maduro di promer segunda grado
cu no ta worde considera critico.

E promer explosion a socede 1:10

producto destina pa Recifi, Rio de
Janeiro y Bahia, Brazil — ora can-

dela a cuminza. E candela a cuminza
for di brandmento di gasoline cu a

Trahadornan di Lago, bao direc-
cion di Superintendente General F. E.
Griffin, rapidamente a pone na ope-
racion aparatonan extensivo di paga

chens di explosion ta mas grandi den

On the 5th day of this month Ber-
nardo E. Croes, 2 subforeman_ in
Mechanical — Pipe, became the first
man to complete 30 years of com-
pany service in Aruba. During those
years Mr. Croes has not had a day
of deductible absence.

In recognition of his 30th anni-
versary, Mr. Croes was invited to an
Executive Committee meeting where
President J. J. Horigan presented a
diamond-studded 30-year button.

In expressing his appreciation, Mr.
Croes spoke for 25 minutes on his
career — first with the Pan-Ameri-
can Petroleum Co., the fore-runner
of Lago and with the company.

Mr. Croes, whose entire service has
been in the Pipe Craft, told of putting
in the first three-inch line on the
island and laying 99 joints in a work-
ing day.

"We tried to make it 100,” he
laughed, "but we never could do it.”
In those early days equipment was
scarce. Mr. Croes said that a pipe-









fitter working on harbor installa-
tions who dropped a nut or bolt in
the water had to dive down and
retrieve it.

He said he was given his first job
by Raiph Watson, Lago’s pioneer
foreign staff employee who retired
last year. On the day he was hired,
Mr. Croes said, he told his wife, ”I’m
going to work for the company for
30 years.” To the committee he said,
"Well, I made it.”

Mr. Croes was first employed by
Pan-American Jan. 5, 1925, and was
retained by Lago in 1928 as a pipe-
fitter. Since then he has had seven
promotions. The last came in 1950
when he was made a subforeman.

The first three week nights of cach week,
145 students wend their way toward the Aruba
Technical School. They form the student body
of Aruba’s first night school open to everyone
on the and.

The desire to learn is
quirement.

This is departure from the ATS night
school’s forerunners. Formerly, only ATS gra-
duates or persons of comparable education had
the ne ry requirements for evening classes.

The move proved to be a popular one. With
desires to prepare for entrance into a trade
career or aiming toward self-betterment in
particular crafts, more men applied for enroll-
ment than could be handled.

On Jan, 10, the night school opened and the
nlarged program headed down its first si

the school’s only re-

| usher in another part of the school year.
New students may enroll at that time and
students now in school will have the opportu-
nity to take advanced cou s using the know-
ledge they will gain during their present
month period.

The courses — of which there are more than
40 to choose from — are planned to fit
vienced craftsmen, beginning craf

active students wishing to take
s of v ng intensity. They a
ed to teach basic skills and to improv
skills. In addition to actual manual practices
an important phase of the Aruba Technical
School night courses is theory.

Hurricane - Hit
Carriacou Sends

Thanks for Help

Carriacou, an agricultural island of
some 12,000 persons near Grenada,
suffered the equivalent of almost
Fls. 45,000 damage when it was
struck by the hurricane Hazel” last |
October.

A group of Aruba residents, mostly
Lago employees, contributed toward
a Carriacou relief fund and recently
received a letter of thanks from N.
Hayling, the district officer and top
government official of the Grenada
dependency.

The letter, addressed to H. David-
son of the Industrial Relations De-
partment who headed the fund drive
here, said:

”T have to acknowledge the receipt |
of your cheque for L 209 17 s. Id
(Fls. 1151), being donations collected
by you from sympathizers toward
the Hurricane Relief of Carriacou.

"On behalf of the Relief Com-
mittee and of the people of Carria-
cou, I wish to thank you with deep
appreciation for the mighty effort |
you, personally, exercised; and the
donors for their kind subscription. I
shall be grateful if you would pass
on such thanks and appreciation to
them.”
