Rainfall Total On Upswing

After three consecutive years of declining rainfall, Aruba wound
up 1954 with 11.93 inches more rain than fell in 1953 and 8.4
inches more than the average total rainfall of the past quarter-
century, the Technical Service Department reported.

TSD, which since 1930 has kept a record of the amount of rain
that fell on the refinery each year, said October of 1954 — when
9.19 inches were recorded was the rainiest October of the last
25 years.

The second wettest month was February when 5.71 inches fell.
Other monthly totals, in order of amount, were: November, 2.80
inches; December, 2.38; January, 1.58; September, 1.19; March, 1.03;
July, .97; April, .67; August, .54; June, .42 and May, .14.

In all, 26.62 inches of rain fell on Aruba last year and raised the
average yearly total from 17.86 inches at the close of 1953 to 18.21.

Since 1950, when a record 44.16 inches drenched the island, the
yearly total had steadily declined. In 1951 it was 22.69; in 1952 it was
16.04 and in 1953 it was 14.69.

TSD’s compilations showed February shared honors with October
in setting a monthly rainfall record. The wettest previous February
was in 1950 when 2.71 inches fell. March last year was the third |
wettest on record.

December continues to be the wettest month. The average rainfall |
for the last month of the year during the past quarter-century has
been 4.14 inches.

Movies? “A Lot Of Work, A Lot Of Fun’

Student Yesterday, Starlet Today

In 1954 a young American girl |
was a student in a Paris finishing |
school. In 1955 she had played in
one moving picture and was on her
way to Rome to play in three more.
On a round-about route, she stop-
ped in Aruba.

Aboard the S.S. Mormactide when
the ship pulled into San Nicolas Har-
bor the night of Jan. 28 were Elena|
Partella, her mother and father. They |
had come from New York and we |
headed for Rio di Janiero. |

The trip had started two years ear- |
lier when Elena — only 15 but al-|
ready a striking blonde with
eyes and a heart-shaped face — her |
mother and father left Hollywood, |
Calif., for France where Elena was |
to continue her education. |

In Paris Elena enrolled in a achool|
for young ladies. Her father, a retir- |

at theatre Elena offered
movie parts. Each time her parents
rejected the offer, feeling Elena was
too young to interrupt her education.

She had also been offered modeling
assignments and eventually her par-
ents relented. The picture was pr
posed as a cover for ”Paris Match,”
France’s leading feature magazine.

When the magazine editors saw the
picture, they chose it for the cover |
and announced they had discovered a|
new beauty. Other magazine editors |

‘55 May Be Cop Tourist Mear

Nineteen fifty-five bids fair to
be Aruba’s best tourist year to
date. Regular Grace Line ship ar-
rivals, five scheduled visits of the
luxury cruise ship S.S. Tradewind,
frequent stops by Moore-McCor-
mick line vessels and daily flights
by the Royal Dutch Airline are ex-
pected to bring more visitors to
these shores during 1955 than in
any previous year.

Aruba’s increased tourist activity
reflects the growing acceptance of
the Caribbean as the "playground
of the Americas.” Islands within
and countries that fringe the Carib-
bean are expected to do a record
$125,000,000 in the tourist business
this year.

Aruba, faced with the need to di-
versify its basic economy, is bidding
for a slice of the tourist melon with
its low prices, scenic attractions,
bathing beaches and_ picturesque
charm. And its efforts are paying off.

Two visitors early this year were
Jim and Jean McElroy of Pittsburgh,
Pa., who came in on the S.S. Santa
Sofia Jan. 26. Though not necessarily
typical, they represent to a large
degree the type of tourist who will
be trekking to the Caribbean this
year.

They are the parents of four child-
ren and live in a substantial house in
the North Hills suburb of Pittsburgh.
Jim has worked his way up to an
executive position in his company.
Jean’s time is taken up with her
children, her house and some commu-
nity work.

To make the three-week cruise the
McElroys engaged a nurse to care
for their children and then set off for
New York. Their suitcases packed
with vacation finery, they checked
into a hotel for a short holiday. On
Jan. 21 they boarded the *Santa
Sofia” and sailed out of New York
Harbor with 40 fellow-passengers.

For five days the ship steamed
through the winter weather that hug-
ged the East Coast of the United
States and finally entered the warm,
sun-lit waters of the Caribbean. On
board Jim and Jean swam in the
ship’s pool, played shuffleboard and
deck tennis, lounged in deck chairs.

At night they dined and danced
under Caribbean stars, attended a
dinner given by Capt. T. R. Thomson,
entertained and were entertained by

other passengers. When they awoke
the morning of Jan. 26, the Santa
Sofia” was off Oranjestad Harbor.

Jim and Jean dressed quickly, ate
breakfast and hurried out on deck.
They were anxious to get ashore be-
cause they’d been told of Aruba’s low
prices. Jim wanted to buy a pair of
binoculars. Jean wanted some silver.
And from Aruba the ship was bound
for South America where prices were
much higher.

They started their shopping trip
by inspecting the binoculars on sale
in he Foto Ideaal of Kuster’s Trading
Co. Jim was impressed by the quality
and price of various field glasses, but
decided to check other stores.

Next they looked into several va-
riety stores, then entered Spritzer
and Fuhrmann. Jean spotted a musi-
cal liqueur glass cabinet and exclaim-
ed, ”My, it’s lovely,’ but was distract-
ed by a pair of silver candlesticks,

The McElroys spent close to 30 mi-
nutes in the jewelry store, inspecting
watches and pepper mills and dolls
and Delft-ware and the dozens of
other items on display. ’We’ll be
back,” Jean told the salesgirl as she
and Jim left.

A few doors down the street they
entered the Peasant Shop where Jim
looked over th carved ebony figures
and teakwood furniture while Jean
scanned the clothes racks. Eventually,
she chose a Guatemala print skirt for
her daughter.

Stopping at various stores, they
made their way to Wimco where Jim
checked on binoculars of Japanese
manufacture. The store did not have
the type of glasses he wanted.

Jean, who was born in England and
Jim, who has traveled extensively for
business and pleasure, were on a
small island for the first time. As
they walked along Nassaustraat, they
noted the bright colors of the buil-
dings, the flowers, shrubs and vines
that fronted many sidestreet homes,
the cordiality of the storekeepers and
pedestrians,

"Is the weather always like this?”
Jim asked. Assured that the sun and
wind kept the temperatures in the
low 80’s almost year-round, he ex-
claimed, ’Boy, this is for me!”

As they traveled from store to
store, the McElroys met other pas-
sengers off the ”Santa” ship. The
women breathlessly compared prices
and quality of various items they’d
discovered, the men shook their heads

at their wives’ eagerness and furtive-
ly displayed the articles they had
purchased.

Jim and Jean, who had murked the
purchases they intended to make be-
fore they left Aruba, wanted to
something of the island. In a taxi,
they traveled past Mt. Hooiberg
through Santa Cruz to San Nicolas
and Lago Colony, then headed back
up the island.

At Frenchman’s Pass the driver
told them the story of the fabled
pirate battle for which the pass was
named, Jim, a movie camera fan, took
pictures of the goats that scrambled
up and down the face of the cliff.

Outside Sant Cruz, they stopped
for a look at the panorama from the
base of the new water tower, then
went to the outskirts of Santa Cruz.
There Jim took a picture of Jean b
neath a watapana tree with Mt. Hooi-
berg in the background.

Anxious to see one of the island’s
beaches of which they had heard, the

McElroys headed for Palm Beach. At
3asiroeti, where a resort is

built, Jim said, at’s a fine
You couldn’t ask for a nicer
than this.”

At the Palm Beach Club, which has
made its facilities available to ap-
proved visitors, Jim and Jean met
Capt. Thomson, Ship’s Dr. John Me
Kenna and Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Wal-
lace who sat at the captain’s table
with the McElroys.

They had been swimming and in-
vited the McElroys to join them, but
they preferred to return to Oranje-
stad to pick up the purchases they
had decided on.

The ”Santa Sofia” sz
and headed for Maracaibo, Puerto
Cabello, La Guiara and Guanta in
Venezuela, then back to Baltimore,
Md. and New York. Before they left,
Jim and Jean agreed that "if the rest
of the trip is as much fun as our day
in Aruba has been, we’re going to
have a wonderful time.”

on her maiden voyage as part of the

Tourist Commission had prepared a
reception and programs that included
music of a steel band, the ”Aruba
Cocktail,” island guides and island
tours.

As the ”Tradewinds” neared its
berth in Oranjestad Harbor (lower

group prepared to meet the islands’
visitors as they descended the gang-
way (left). In addition to the musical
welcome of the steel band, they were
welcomed with an ”Aruba Cocktail”
(right). Also at the pier was a Ro-
tary booth. Here the visitors were
given stamped cards courtesy of Aru-
ba’s Rotary Club (lower right). All
the cards needed were a message and
address and local Rotarians saw to it
that they were sent on their way

‘LPD Patrolmen
Get Fire-Fighting,
First Aid Training

Patrolmen of the Lago Police De- |
partment are currently receiving ex- |
| tensive training in fire-fighting and
first aid. or the patrolmen who have
never been exposed to such training,
it is a complete course covering all
facts of fire protection and first aid;
for those who have had such trainin-,
it is a complete review plus instruc-
tion in latest procedures.

The 20-hour course will be taken}
by nine groups, each group averaging |
about seven men. The importance of
such training, as emphasized by Lt.|
Richard Smith, LPD program coordi-
nator, is in the fact that these are!
the men who patrol the plant and
during their rounds might very well
be the first to discover situations
where fire-fighting or first aid is
needed immediately. ”’They have to
know the best measures to take and
the quickest and surest way to take
them,” commented Lt. Smith, “and
this training gives our patrolmen
that knowledge.”

The fire-fighting training takes
place on a flat of coral and sand
behind the pitch still. There J. I.
Minton and James Osborn of the Uti-
lities Division handle the instruction.
Included in the fire course is the
handling of various types of extin-
guishers to combat various types of
fires.

The patrolmen learn that there are
three major categories of fires: class
A fires which include oily rags, wood
and rope; class B fires of gasoline,
and class C fires that involve electri-
city.

The first group of patrolmen to
receive fire-fighting training were in-
structed by Walter Bitterling, a re-
presentative of the Ansul Dry Che-
mical Company. Mr. Bitterling took
the initial group through the dif-



el ta pisa 175.

National League

|\Completes Schedules

With the publication of the Natio-
nal League schedule in this issue, the
complete schedules of both leagues
for 1 have been in the Aruba Esso
News.

As an added feature for Senior
Loop fans the squad picture of the
champions of the National League
and the world, the New York-Giants,
is also carried. Standouts of the
Giants squad that can be easily re-
cognized in the squad picture are
Willy Mays — of course — Monty
Irvin, Alvin Dark, Henry Thomp-
son and Manager-of-the-Year Leo
Durocher.

And they are ready to go again! It
won’t be long before spring training
will bring about time-honored prog-
nostication that more often than not
is arrived at through sentiment, not

| figures. Will the Giants repeat? How

about the Yanks?

rienced, Larry wrote of the YMCA
dinner and the talks the boys gave on|
their native island of Aruba. Follow- |

Lago has scheduled its second an-
nual ”Press Day,” at which it will
play host. to area newsmen, for
March 1. Twenty-three men and
women representing newspapers and
radio stations in Aruba and Curacao
are on the guest list.

Arranged by Lago’s Public Rela-
tions Department, ”Press Day” will
include a tour of the new Employee

in San Nicolas Harbor, a Lago-press
forum entitled "The Press Wants To
Know,” a dinner and an address by
General Manager O. Mingus.

A chartered airplane will be used
to provide transportation for the
guests from Curacao.

The forum will be a new feature of
”Press Day.” Four Lago executives
will answer questions posed by the
press representatives about the com-
pany’s op i




| officers at private parties.

| The ”Neosho,” classified as a fleet
| oiler, is the second of its class to be
built for the U.S. Navy. Twin screw,
it has a cruising speed of 18 knots.
At Lago it was loaded for the first

Rainfall Total On Upswing

After three consecutive years of declining rainfall, Aruba wound
up 1954 with 11.93 inches more rain than fell in 1953 and 8.4
inches more than the average total rainfall of the past quarter-
century, the Technical Service Department reported.

TSD, which since 1930 has kept a record of the amount of rain
that fell on the refinery each year, said October of 1954 — when
9.19 inches were recorded was the rainiest October of the last
25 years.

The second wettest month was February when 5.71 inches fell.
Other monthly totals, in order of amount, were: November, 2.80
inches; December, 2.38; January, 1.58; September, 1.19; March, 1.03;
July, .97; April, .67; August, .54; June, .42 and May, .14.

In all, 26.62 inches of rain fell on Aruba last year and raised the
average yearly total from 17.86 inches at the close of 1953 to 18.21.

Since 1950, when a record 44.16 inches drenched the island, the
yearly total had steadily declined. In 1951 it was 22.69; in 1952 it was
16.04 and in 1953 it was 14.69.

TSD’s compilations showed February shared honors with October
in setting a monthly rainfall record. The wettest previous February
was in 1950 when 2.71 inches fell. March last year was the third |
wettest on record.

December continues to be the wettest month. The average rainfall |
for the last month of the year during the past quarter-century has
been 4.14 inches.

Movies? “A Lot Of Work, A Lot Of Fun’

Student Yesterday, Starlet Today

In 1954 a young American girl |
was a student in a Paris finishing |
school. In 1955 she had played in
one moving picture and was on her
way to Rome to play in three more.
On a round-about route, she stop-
ped in Aruba.

Aboard the S.S. Mormactide when
the ship pulled into San Nicolas Har-
bor the night of Jan. 28 were Elena|
Partella, her mother and father. They |
had come from New York and we |
headed for Rio di Janiero. |

The trip had started two years ear- |
lier when Elena — only 15 but al-|
ready a striking blonde with
eyes and a heart-shaped face — her |
mother and father left Hollywood, |
Calif., for France where Elena was |
to continue her education. |

In Paris Elena enrolled in a achool|
for young ladies. Her father, a retir- |

once professional dancer, settled
down to the life of Americans abroad.

Startled, Elena stammered ”No”
and hurried home to tell her mother
about the incident. Two more
that year — once at school and again
at theatre Elena offered
movie parts. Each time her parents
rejected the offer, feeling Elena was
too young to interrupt her education.

She had also been offered modeling
assignments and eventually her par-
ents relented. The picture was pr
posed as a cover for ”Paris Match,”
France’s leading feature magazine.

When the magazine editors saw the
picture, they chose it for the cover |
and announced they had discovered a|
new beauty. Other magazine editors |

‘55 May Be Cop Tourist Mear

Nineteen fifty-five bids fair to
be Aruba’s best tourist year to
date. Regular Grace Line ship ar-
rivals, five scheduled visits of the
luxury cruise ship S.S. Tradewind,
frequent stops by Moore-McCor-
mick line vessels and daily flights
by the Royal Dutch Airline are ex-
pected to bring more visitors to
these shores during 1955 than in
any previous year.

Aruba’s increased tourist activity
reflects the growing acceptance of
the Caribbean as the "playground
of the Americas.” Islands within
and countries that fringe the Carib-
bean are expected to do a record
$125,000,000 in the tourist business
this year.

Aruba, faced with the need to di-
versify its basic economy, is bidding
for a slice of the tourist melon with
its low prices, scenic attractions,
bathing beaches and_ picturesque
charm. And its efforts are paying off.

Two visitors early this year were
Jim and Jean McElroy of Pittsburgh,
Pa., who came in on the S.S. Santa
Sofia Jan. 26. Though not necessarily
typical, they represent to a large
degree the type of tourist who will
be trekking to the Caribbean this
year.

They are the parents of four child-
ren and live in a substantial house in
the North Hills suburb of Pittsburgh.
Jim has worked his way up to an
executive position in his company.
Jean’s time is taken up with her
children, her house and some commu-
nity work.

To make the three-week cruise the
McElroys engaged a nurse to care
for their children and then set off for
New York. Their suitcases packed
with vacation finery, they checked
into a hotel for a short holiday. On
Jan. 21 they boarded the *Santa
Sofia” and sailed out of New York
Harbor with 40 fellow-passengers.

For five days the ship steamed
through the winter weather that hug-
ged the East Coast of the United
States and finally entered the warm,
sun-lit waters of the Caribbean. On
board Jim and Jean swam in the
ship’s pool, played shuffleboard and
deck tennis, lounged in deck chairs.

At night they dined and danced
under Caribbean stars, attended a
dinner given by Capt. T. R. Thomson,
entertained and were entertained by

other passengers. When they awoke
the morning of Jan. 26, the Santa
Sofia” was off Oranjestad Harbor.

Jim and Jean dressed quickly, ate
breakfast and hurried out on deck.
They were anxious to get ashore be-
cause they’d been told of Aruba’s low
prices. Jim wanted to buy a pair of
binoculars. Jean wanted some silver.
And from Aruba the ship was bound
for South America where prices were
much higher.

They started their shopping trip
by inspecting the binoculars on sale
in he Foto Ideaal of Kuster’s Trading
Co. Jim was impressed by the quality
and price of various field glasses, but
decided to check other stores.

Next they looked into several va-
riety stores, then entered Spritzer
and Fuhrmann. Jean spotted a musi-
cal liqueur glass cabinet and exclaim-
ed, ”My, it’s lovely,’ but was distract-
ed by a pair of silver candlesticks,

The McElroys spent close to 30 mi-
nutes in the jewelry store, inspecting
watches and pepper mills and dolls
and Delft-ware and the dozens of
other items on display. ’We’ll be
back,” Jean told the salesgirl as she
and Jim left.

A few doors down the street they
entered the Peasant Shop where Jim
looked over th carved ebony figures
and teakwood furniture while Jean
scanned the clothes racks. Eventually,
she chose a Guatemala print skirt for
her daughter.

Stopping at various stores, they
made their way to Wimco where Jim
checked on binoculars of Japanese
manufacture. The store did not have
the type of glasses he wanted.

Jean, who was born in England and
Jim, who has traveled extensively for
business and pleasure, were on a
small island for the first time. As
they walked along Nassaustraat, they
noted the bright colors of the buil-
dings, the flowers, shrubs and vines
that fronted many sidestreet homes,
the cordiality of the storekeepers and
pedestrians,

"Is the weather always like this?”
Jim asked. Assured that the sun and
wind kept the temperatures in the
low 80’s almost year-round, he ex-
claimed, ’Boy, this is for me!”

As they traveled from store to
store, the McElroys met other pas-
sengers off the ”Santa” ship. The
women breathlessly compared prices
and quality of various items they’d
discovered, the men shook their heads

at their wives’ eagerness and furtive-
ly displayed the articles they had
purchased.

Jim and Jean, who had murked the
purchases they intended to make be-
fore they left Aruba, wanted to
something of the island. In a taxi,
they traveled past Mt. Hooiberg
through Santa Cruz to San Nicolas
and Lago Colony, then headed back
up the island.

At Frenchman’s Pass the driver
told them the story of the fabled
pirate battle for which the pass was
named, Jim, a movie camera fan, took
pictures of the goats that scrambled
up and down the face of the cliff.

Outside Sant Cruz, they stopped
for a look at the panorama from the
base of the new water tower, then
went to the outskirts of Santa Cruz.
There Jim took a picture of Jean b
neath a watapana tree with Mt. Hooi-
berg in the background.

Anxious to see one of the island’s
beaches of which they had heard, the

McElroys headed for Palm Beach. At
3asiroeti, where a resort is

built, Jim said, at’s a fine
You couldn’t ask for a nicer
than this.”

At the Palm Beach Club, which has
made its facilities available to ap-
proved visitors, Jim and Jean met
Capt. Thomson, Ship’s Dr. John Me
Kenna and Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Wal-
lace who sat at the captain’s table
with the McElroys.

They had been swimming and in-
vited the McElroys to join them, but
they preferred to return to Oranje-
stad to pick up the purchases they
had decided on.

The ”Santa Sofia” sz
and headed for Maracaibo, Puerto
Cabello, La Guiara and Guanta in
Venezuela, then back to Baltimore,
Md. and New York. Before they left,
Jim and Jean agreed that "if the rest
of the trip is as much fun as our day
in Aruba has been, we’re going to
have a wonderful time.”

‘LPD Patrolmen
Get Fire-Fighting,
First Aid Training

Patrolmen of the Lago Police De- |
partment are currently receiving ex- |
| tensive training in fire-fighting and
first aid. or the patrolmen who have
never been exposed to such training,
it is a complete course covering all
facts of fire protection and first aid;
for those who have had such trainin-,
it is a complete review plus instruc-
tion in latest procedures.

The 20-hour course will be taken}
by nine groups, each group averaging |
about seven men. The importance of
such training, as emphasized by Lt.|
Richard Smith, LPD program coordi-
nator, is in the fact that these are!
the men who patrol the plant and
during their rounds might very well
be the first to discover situations
where fire-fighting or first aid is
needed immediately. ”’They have to
know the best measures to take and
the quickest and surest way to take
them,” commented Lt. Smith, “and
this training gives our patrolmen
that knowledge.”

The fire-fighting training takes
place on a flat of coral and sand
behind the pitch still. There J. I.
Minton and James Osborn of the Uti-
lities Division handle the instruction.
Included in the fire course is the
handling of various types of extin-
guishers to combat various types of
fires.

The patrolmen learn that there are
three major categories of fires: class
A fires which include oily rags, wood
and rope; class B fires of gasoline,
and class C fires that involve electri-
city.

The first group of patrolmen to
receive fire-fighting training were in-
structed by Walter Bitterling, a re-
presentative of the Ansul Dry Che-
mical Company. Mr. Bitterling took
the initial group through the dif-



el ta pisa 175.

National League

|\Completes Schedules

With the publication of the Natio-
nal League schedule in this issue, the
complete schedules of both leagues
for 1 have been in the Aruba Esso
News.

As an added feature for Senior
Loop fans the squad picture of the
champions of the National League
and the world, the New York-Giants,
is also carried. Standouts of the
Giants squad that can be easily re-
cognized in the squad picture are
Willy Mays — of course — Monty
Irvin, Alvin Dark, Henry Thomp-
son and Manager-of-the-Year Leo
Durocher.

And they are ready to go again! It
won’t be long before spring training
will bring about time-honored prog-
nostication that more often than not
is arrived at through sentiment, not

| figures. Will the Giants repeat? How

about the Yanks?

Allentown Students
Make Honor Roll

For Third Time

For the third consecutive marking!
period, Lago’s Allentown students,
Hendrik Bareno and Loreto Kok, are |
on the Pennsylvania high school’s
honor roll. Their averages of 92 and|
91 were topped by a 97 in algebra 2
for Pete and a 97 in general math for
Larry.

In their letters to W. H. Meskill,
assistant Lago Vocational School
principal, they spoke of snow and |
first experiences on sleds and their
talks at a YMCA dinner. Pete com-
mented about the speed of a sled on
hard snow and the thrills he expe-
rienced, Larry wrote of the YMCA
dinner and the talks the boys gave on|
their native island of Aruba. Follow- |
ing the dinner the boys received
certificates acknowledging their |
evening’s efforts.

In his latest letter Pete made the |
startling announcement that Allen-|
town living is agreeing with him to!
the extent that he has gained 30
pounds. He arrived in Allentown
weighing 145 and now scales 175)
pounds.
