Safety Division Annual Report
Highlights Lago’s Safest Year

Lago employees, who for over a decade have been steadily improving
their work safety record, will receive a report next week on how they

did during 1954.

Prepared by the Safety Division, the report will be distributed by
supervisors to each employee. English and So versions will

available.

The report shows that Lago em-|
2es had the lowest accident fre-

y rate and lowest accident seve-

rity rate in the r history of the

company. As the

in a letter printed in the report, ”but |

numbers and awards were not the



leading characti in Lago’s 1954
safety story. That role was played by
people — men and women who put

safety first.”

In urging that employees strive to
make 1955 safer than 1954, Mr. Hori
gan admitted the task would be di
cut. He said that it can be done, how-
ever, through “cooperation, concen-
tration and care.”

What will it mean?

"It will mean,” Mr. Horigan wrote,
"that when the quitting whistle blows,
we will home to our families
knowing we will be back on the job
tomorrow, working and earning for
them, because we put safety first to-
day.”

The report, printed in four colors
and illustrated throughout, presents a
breakdown of the success of the safe-
ty promotion program, leading causes

Tanker Bearing

Island Name
Not Esso Ship

The name "Aruba,’”’ connected
with the oil industry the past 25
years, broke into the daily news
headlines earlier this month. It
was not the island, however, but
a Finnish tanker which made the
news.

The M.V. Aruba left Constanta,
Rumania, late in February with a
cargo of high-grade kerosene suitable
for use as jet airplane fuel. The ship
was bound for the Communist Chi-
nese port of Shanghai.

Members of the United States
Congres demanded that the U.S.
Seventh Fleet, patroling the waters
between Formosa and the Chinese

“Aruba” a Not
Jersey Tanker

Neither the Standard Oil Com-
pany (New Jersey) nor its affilia-
tes has any current interest in the
operation of the ”Aruba.”

Formerly named the ”Pan Aru-
ba,” the ship was built in 1931 at
Newcastle-on-Tyne, England. It
was taken under long-term charter
as a new ship by a subsidiary of
the Standard Oil Co. of Indiana
when that company owned the
Lago refinery.

When the Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey) bought the Lago
properties it took over the charter.
The ”Pan Aruba” traded out of
Aruba until the out-break of
World War II when the Norwe-
gian government, under whose
flag it sailed, requisitioned the
ship.

In 1948 the ”Pan Aruba” was
transferred to the Finnish flag and
its named was shortened to ”Aru-
ba.” It last called here in January,
1954.

There is now no ship operated
by Jersey Standard or its affilia-
tes bearing the name ”Aruba.”
The "Esso Aruba” was sold last
year and is now operated as the
"Captain John.”

mainland, intercept the Aruba” be-
eause delivery of its cargo to Com-
munist China had been forbidden by
a United Nations embargo.
Nationalist Chinese newspapers in
Formosa demanded the Nationalist
Chinese Navy sink the ”Aruba” if
necessary to prevent delivery of its
cargo to the Chinese Reds. A Natio-
nalist spokesman said the navy plan-
ned to “take” the ship if it entered
the Formosan Strait between the is-
land and the China mainland.
Meanwhile the ”Aruba,” under
charter to Far East Enterprises, Ltd.,
a Red-owned concern in Hong Kong,

was steaming through the Indian
Ocean. Its cargo of 13,000 tons of

kerosene was estimated to be enough
for 5000 sorties against Formosa if
the Reds moved jet fighter-bombers
within range of the island.

The British government, after de-
ciding nothing could be done legally
to interfere with the charter, ordered

successful two years ago when an-

union officers in Helsinki it had re-
fused to sail the tanker to a Commu-

owns the ’Aruba,” did not protest the

ject their contract "if danger of sei-

increased since the voy started.”

The ’Aruba” sailed from Constan-
ta Feb. 28.

The ship owners notified the Com-
munist Chinese government the ”Aru-
ba” could not proceed to Red China
and offered to trans-ship the cargo in
a non-communist port or transfer the
cargo to another tanker at sea.

cidad siman pasa ora cuatro perio-
dista a sinta hunto cu cuatro
miembro di directiva di Lago pa un
discusion ariba ”Dia di Prensa.”

Titula ”Prensa kier sabi,” e forum
tabata teni pa duna periodistanan un
oportunidad pa puntra cualkier pre-
gunta cu nan tabata desea tocante
operacion y polizanan di compania.

Gerald J. Staartjes, redactor di e
diario Arubano Arubaan: Courant, |
a habri e cuestion di federacion pun-
trando si ’Federacion di Trahadores
Petroleros lo no tin un oportunidad
di worde reconoci door di Lago? Nan
lo tin chens di worde reconoci asina,
of nan tin mester tin di cambia nan
organizacion promer?





Superintendente General F, E,
Griffin, kende a comenta tocante
esfuerzonan di e Union durante e

barbecue anual pa representantenan
Feb. 12, a contesta Sr. Staartjes.
Durante un revista di su remarca-



nan anterior, Sr. Griffin a bisa cu

empleadonan di cualkier organizacion
industrial tin mester di un sistema
di representacion. El a splica cu e
sistema di comité eligi tabatin ”extre-
mo exito” den representacion di
empleadonan di Lago y empleadonan
di otro afiliadonan di Standard Oil
Co, (N.J.) den henter mundo.

El a agrega expresivamente cu si
mester yega tempo cu e presente
forma di representacion pa medio di
comité tin mester di revision pa
hacie’le mas satisfactorio pa emplea-

}donan di Lago, e sistema ta traha

asina cu e ta brinda facilidadnan pa
cambio pa medio di proceso di nego-
ciacion colectivo.

Negociacion colectivo, e gerente
general a splica, por resulta den "un
union independiente di pafor, of un
otro soito di sistema electivo cu
mester worde desaroyaé ainda.”

E supsrintendente general a splica
anteriormente cu e sistema di comité
na Lago "ta un sistema berdadera-
mente democratico — hendenan lo-
cal, interesnan local, y nos ta sinti
relacionnan entre empleadonan y di-
rectiva, y e representacion satisfacto-
rio di empleadonan por worde mehor



respalda for di punto di vista di co-
munidad, trahadornan y di compania

{door di tal forma di representacion.”

Den un expansion ariba contesta di
Sr. Griffin, C. F. Smith, superinten-
dente di departamentonan di servicio
ly staff, a acentua dos punto basa
ariba un estudio di desaroyo di liga
di obrero den Estados Unidos y un
revista di reciente publicacionnan di
liga.

Nan tabata:

1. Cu Congress of Industrial Or-
ganization, un grupo di liga di Esta-

dad di un compania grandi cu taba-

For di un revista di publicacionnan
di liga, Sr. Smith a cita un declara-
cion cu a aparece den International
Oil Worker di Januari 10, un organo
publica door di IFPW. E declaracion
ta bisa cu ”Projectonan grandi di
organizacion a worde lanza na Aruba,
Antillas Holandes y India bao di-
reccion di International Federation of
Petroleum Workers, asina Secretario
General Lloyd A. Haskins a anuncia.

"Esakinan ta di promer projecto-
nan di organizacion emprendi pa e

baonan preliminario ariba e pro-
jectonan aki ta den progreso varios
luna pero pa motibonan strategico e
plannan no a worde anuncia sino te

lanta.

Despues di un descripcion di ope-
racion di Lago cual e declaracion a
bisa ta mas of menos ”e mes distan-
cia pa medio di tanquero for di New
York pa e centro di refinacion na
Golfo di Texas,” el a sigui cu ”Pa
motibo di e factornan aki, refineria

de usa contra trahadornan di Estados

Den un resumen di otro publica-
cionnan di e union tocante e obheto
di organiza Aruba, Sr. Smith a cita
for di Boletin Inter-Americana di
Obrero di Januari 1955.

E Boletin a bisa cu ”David Stern-

Comentando mas leuw ainda ariba
e pregunta tocante PWFA represen-

"Nos no por kibra e contract ey,”

{el a splica. "Ta existi cierto procedi-

——$ $$ eee

Out-Bound For Tahiti

Day after day the Trade Winds
blew, scudding the "Nordstern”
across the Atlantic. Under reefed
foresail and mainsail the 27-foot-
cutter, bound from Dakar to
Aruba, rose to the top of each
windbuilt wave, hung a moment on
the crest and then fled down the
boiling slope.

Just when it seemed the bow would
dive beneath the water it checked its
plunge, struggled up, gathered speed
and then shot skyward as the next
wave lifted the ”Nordstern” and
drove it forward.

The winds and wild water held
steady from the southeast, posing a
constant threat to the two men
aboard the cutter. One moment of
carelessness at the helm and the boat,
dwarfed by the seas around it, might
broach and over-turn,

Cold spray, torn by the wind from
the top of each wave, drenched the
man on watch as he struggled with
the rudder. There was no sun. Over-
head were only low, gray, fast-flying
clouds which from time to time
pelted the ’Nordstern” with rain.
Line squalls came hurrying up from
astern, engulfed the boat a moment
and then went racing on ahead.

The days were cold and gray, the
nights cold and black. After a turn
at the tiller the men would throw
themselves in the cabin so exhausted
they would sleep a few hours despite
the pitching of the boat, eat a cold
snack and then take the watch again.

As the days wore on and the un-
relenting pressure took its toll even
the task of changing the man at the
helm became a perilous operation.
The man who had been on watch
would slide his hands aft on the tiller.
His relief would grasp the forward
part and nod when he had a firm
grip. Then the man going off watch
would help him sit down, for a mo-
ment off balance might be fatal.

Ever ready was a sea anchor, a
kite-shaped canvas bag the men had
rigged when they cleared the North
African coast. The anchor could be
tossed over the side to keep the
”Nordstern’s” bow into the wind if
the men had to have to ride out a
storm.

Fourteen days out of Dakar the
two men got their first encourage-
ment. On their battery-powered radio
they picked up the _ broadcasting
station in Barbados, some 400 miles
to the northwest. They held to their
course, however, and drove through
the Windward Island chain north of
Tobago and entered the Caribbean.

Still swept along by wind and
wave, they skirted the northeast
coast of Venezuela, passed inside the
Isla de Margarita and pounded past
Curacao where the lights of the
island reflected off the lowering
black storm clouds.

On the night of Feb. 20, from the
top of a hissing wave, they caught
their first glimpse of the light on
Colorado Point. Riding the current
they swept around the point and beat
their way up the southwest shore
to San Nicolas Harbor and anchored
for the night. The crossing, some
38000 miles, had taken 28 days.

"We may have set a small-boat
record for the distance,” Hans Lichte,
owner and captain of the ”Nord-
stern,” said later as he relaxed in
the book-lined cabin of his boat.

"We had storm-force winds all the
way and every sea looked as though
it would break right on top of us,
but the ’Nordstern’ — that’s German
for North Star rode every one.
We drove her hard, but she never
faltered.”

Mr. Lichte, a more experienced
seaman than Florian Leyrer who
had joined the ’Nordstern” at Dakar,
spent as many as 20 straight hours
at the helm bundled in an overcoat
and wrapped in a blanket. Safely at
anchor, he found he still could not
straighten the cramped fingers of
his left hand with which he had held
the tiller.

Mr. Lichte, an author who before
World War II traveled the world to
write about Germans abroad, started
this trip last May. An earlier acci-
dent, however, almost shattered his
plans of sailing to the South Seas.

Since his youth Mr. Lichte had
been an avid amateur yachtsman. In
the 1930’s he owned a yawl in which
he cruised the Mediterranean and
had sailed other small boats all over
the world. So he turned to the sea
after the war to earn money to buy
another small boat he could sail to
Tahiti where he had decided to spend
the rest of his life.

He shipped as a crew member of a
freighter, calculating he could save
the major portion of his wages.
Within two years he had banked
enough to buy a boat and finance the
trip when, in a shipboard accident,
he lost his right leg.

When he left the hospital he was
still determined to make the trip
despite the loss of his leg. He found,
though the accident had eaten into
his savings, he still had enough
money for a boat but little for travel-
ing expenses.

In Bremen he located an eight-ton,
steel-hulled cutter built five years
before. Staunch, seaworthy, rigged
so one man could sail it, the
"Nordstern” fitted his neeGs and he
bought it. Saying good-bye to his
19-year-old son who was studying to
be an optical engineer, he sailed with
two friends from Bremen May 8.

The friends returned home
La Coruna, Spain and Mr. Lichte
sailed alone from La Coruna to
Leixoes in Portugal. "I was at the
helm for 50 straight hours on that

from

trip,” he said, "and realized I could
not make the rest of the voyage
alone.”

In Leixoes he picked up a fellow
German who accompanied him as far
as Dakar. There Mr. Lichte looked
around for another traveler and
found Mr. Leyrer, a radio technician
who wanted to go to South America.

In Aruba the two men parted and
once again Mr. Lichte took up the
hunt for a shipmate to sai! with him
to Panama, through the canal to the
Galapagos Islands and then through
the South Seas to Tahiti.

Mr. Lichte, now 48, plans to spend
the rest of his life in the islands. A
student of history and ethnology, he
fi became interested in the Poly-
nesians, Maoris and other peoples of
the area when he traveled the Pacifi
before the war.

He plans to live on his boat and
augment the monthly pension he
receives for the loss of his leg by
pearl fishing, f ting, cd
mail and passengers to the smaller
islands which have no regular ser-
vice and by writing. He has tentative
agreements with eral
and historical associations.

Meanwhile he is in Aruba hoping
to find someone who wants to sail
to Tahiti and — with Lago’s help —
readying the ’Nordstern” for the
8000-mile voyage which lies ahead.

SOMETHING NEW entered the lives of Pete Bareno and Larry Kock

last month. The two Allentown students were introduced to frozen

lakes and ice skates. A little unsteady at first, they soon found the

ice skating to be a great deal of fun, but also a sport that takes
a great deal of practice.

Safety Division Annual Report
Highlights Lago’s Safest Year

Lago employees, who for over a decade have been steadily improving
their work safety record, will receive a report next week on how they

did during 1954.

Prepared by the Safety Division, the report will be distributed by
supervisors to each employee. English and So versions will

available.

The report shows that Lago em-|
2es had the lowest accident fre-

y rate and lowest accident seve-

rity rate in the r history of the

company. As the

numbers and awards were not the



leading characti in Lago’s 1954
safety story. That role was played by
people — men and women who put

safety first.”

In urging that employees strive to
make 1955 safer than 1954, Mr. Hori
gan admitted the task would be di
cut. He said that it can be done, how-
ever, through “cooperation, concen-
tration and care.”

What will it mean?

"It will mean,” Mr. Horigan wrote,
"that when the quitting whistle blows,
we will home to our families
knowing we will be back on the job
tomorrow, working and earning for
them, because we put safety first to-
day.”

The report, printed in four colors
and illustrated throughout, presents a

Tanker Bearing

Island Name
Not Esso Ship

The name "Aruba,’”’ connected
with the oil industry the past 25
years, broke into the daily news
headlines earlier this month. It
was not the island, however, but
a Finnish tanker which made the
news.

The M.V. Aruba left Constanta,
Rumania, late in February with a
cargo of high-grade kerosene suitable
for use as jet airplane fuel. The ship
was bound for the Communist Chi-
nese port of Shanghai.

Members of the United States
Congres demanded that the U.S.
Seventh Fleet, patroling the waters
between Formosa and the Chinese

“Aruba” a Not
Jersey Tanker

Neither the Standard Oil Com-
pany (New Jersey) nor its affilia-
tes has any current interest in the
operation of the ”Aruba.”

Formerly named the ”Pan Aru-
ba,” the ship was built in 1931 at
Newcastle-on-Tyne, England. It
was taken under long-term charter
as a new ship by a subsidiary of
the Standard Oil Co. of Indiana
when that company owned the
Lago refinery.

When the Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey) bought the Lago
properties it took over the charter.
The ”Pan Aruba” traded out of
Aruba until the out-break of
World War II when the Norwe-
gian government, under whose
flag it sailed, requisitioned the
ship.

In 1948 the ”Pan Aruba” was
transferred to the Finnish flag and
its named was shortened to ”Aru-
ba.” It last called here in January,
1954.

There is now no ship operated
by Jersey Standard or its affilia-
tes bearing the name ”Aruba.”
The "Esso Aruba” was sold last
year and is now operated as the
"Captain John.”

mainland, intercept the Aruba” be-
eause delivery of its cargo to Com-
munist China had been forbidden by
a United Nations embargo.
Nationalist Chinese newspapers in
Formosa demanded the Nationalist
Chinese Navy sink the ”Aruba” if
necessary to prevent delivery of its
cargo to the Chinese Reds. A Natio-
nalist spokesman said the navy plan-
ned to “take” the ship if it entered
the Formosan Strait between the is-
land and the China mainland.
Meanwhile the ”Aruba,” under
charter to Far East Enterprises, Ltd.,
a Red-owned concern in Hong Kong,

was steaming through the Indian
Ocean. Its cargo of 13,000 tons of

kerosene was estimated to be enough
for 5000 sorties against Formosa if
the Reds moved jet fighter-bombers
within range of the island.

The British government, after de-
ciding nothing could be done legally
to interfere with the charter, ordered

successful two years ago when an-

union officers in Helsinki it had re-
fused to sail the tanker to a Commu-

increased since the voy started.”

The ’Aruba” sailed from Constan-
ta Feb. 28.

The ship owners notified the Com-
munist Chinese government the ”Aru-

and offered to trans-ship the cargo in
a non-communist port or transfer the
cargo to another tanker at sea.

cidad siman pasa ora cuatro perio-
dista a sinta hunto cu cuatro
miembro di directiva di Lago pa un
discusion ariba ”Dia di Prensa.”

Titula ”Prensa kier sabi,” e forum
tabata teni pa duna periodistanan un
oportunidad pa puntra cualkier pre-
gunta cu nan tabata desea tocante
operacion y polizanan di compania.

Gerald J. Staartjes, redactor di e
diario Arubano Arubaan: Courant, |
a habri e cuestion di federacion pun-
trando si ’Federacion di Trahadores
Petroleros lo no tin un oportunidad
di worde reconoci door di Lago? Nan
lo tin chens di worde reconoci asina,
of nan tin mester tin di cambia nan
organizacion promer?





Superintendente General F, E,
Griffin, kende a comenta tocante
esfuerzonan di e Union durante e

barbecue anual pa representantenan
Feb. 12, a contesta Sr. Staartjes.
Durante un revista di su remarca-



nan anterior, Sr. Griffin a bisa cu

empleadonan di cualkier organizacion
industrial tin mester di un sistema
di representacion. El a splica cu e
sistema di comité eligi tabatin ”extre-
mo exito” den representacion di
empleadonan di Lago y empleadonan
di otro afiliadonan di Standard Oil
Co, (N.J.) den henter mundo.

El a agrega expresivamente cu si
mester yega tempo cu e presente
forma di representacion pa medio di
comité tin mester di revision pa
hacie’le mas satisfactorio pa emplea-

}donan di Lago, e sistema ta traha

asina cu e ta brinda facilidadnan pa
cambio pa medio di proceso di nego-
ciacion colectivo.

Negociacion colectivo, e gerente
general a splica, por resulta den "un
union independiente di pafor, of un
otro soito di sistema electivo cu
mester worde desaroyaé ainda.”

E supsrintendente general a splica
anteriormente cu e sistema di comité
na Lago "ta un sistema berdadera-
mente democratico — hendenan lo-
cal, interesnan local, y nos ta sinti
relacionnan entre empleadonan y di-
rectiva, y e representacion satisfacto-
rio di empleadonan por worde mehor



respalda for di punto di vista di co-
munidad, trahadornan y di compania

{door di tal forma di representacion.”

Den un expansion ariba contesta di
Sr. Griffin, C. F. Smith, superinten-
dente di departamentonan di servicio
ly staff, a acentua dos punto basa
ariba un estudio di desaroyo di liga
di obrero den Estados Unidos y un
revista di reciente publicacionnan di
liga.

Nan tabata:

1. Cu Congress of Industrial Or-
ganization, un grupo di liga di Esta-

dad di un compania grandi cu taba-

For di un revista di publicacionnan
di liga, Sr. Smith a cita un declara-
cion cu a aparece den International
Oil Worker di Januari 10, un organo
publica door di IFPW. E declaracion
ta bisa cu ”Projectonan grandi di
organizacion a worde lanza na Aruba,
Antillas Holandes y India bao di-
reccion di International Federation of
Petroleum Workers, asina Secretario
General Lloyd A. Haskins a anuncia.

"Esakinan ta di promer projecto-
nan di organizacion emprendi pa e

baonan preliminario ariba e pro-
jectonan aki ta den progreso varios

plannan no a worde anuncia sino te

lanta.

Despues di un descripcion di ope-
racion di Lago cual e declaracion a
bisa ta mas of menos ”e mes distan-
cia pa medio di tanquero for di New
York pa e centro di refinacion na
Golfo di Texas,” el a sigui cu ”Pa

de usa contra trahadornan di Estados

Den un resumen di otro publica-
cionnan di e union tocante e obheto
di organiza Aruba, Sr. Smith a cita
for di Boletin Inter-Americana di

E Boletin a bisa cu ”David Stern-

Comentando mas leuw ainda ariba

"Nos no por kibra e contract ey,”

{el a splica. "Ta existi cierto procedi-

——$ $$ eee

Out-Bound For Tahiti

Day after day the Trade Winds
blew, scudding the "Nordstern”
across the Atlantic. Under reefed
foresail and mainsail the 27-foot-
cutter, bound from Dakar to
Aruba, rose to the top of each
windbuilt wave, hung a moment on
the crest and then fled down the
boiling slope.

Just when it seemed the bow would
dive beneath the water it checked its
plunge, struggled up, gathered speed
and then shot skyward as the next
wave lifted the ”Nordstern” and
drove it forward.

The winds and wild water held
steady from the southeast, posing a
constant threat to the two men
aboard the cutter. One moment of
carelessness at the helm and the boat,
dwarfed by the seas around it, might
broach and over-turn,

Cold spray, torn by the wind from
the top of each wave, drenched the
man on watch as he struggled with
the rudder. There was no sun. Over-
head were only low, gray, fast-flying
clouds which from time to time
pelted the ’Nordstern” with rain.
Line squalls came hurrying up from
astern, engulfed the boat a moment
and then went racing on ahead.

The days were cold and gray, the
nights cold and black. After a turn
at the tiller the men would throw
themselves in the cabin so exhausted
they would sleep a few hours despite
the pitching of the boat, eat a cold
snack and then take the watch again.

As the days wore on and the un-
relenting pressure took its toll even
the task of changing the man at the
helm became a perilous operation.
The man who had been on watch
would slide his hands aft on the tiller.
His relief would grasp the forward
part and nod when he had a firm
grip. Then the man going off watch
would help him sit down, for a mo-
ment off balance might be fatal.

Ever ready was a sea anchor, a
kite-shaped canvas bag the men had
rigged when they cleared the North
African coast. The anchor could be
tossed over the side to keep the
”Nordstern’s” bow into the wind if
the men had to have to ride out a
storm.

Fourteen days out of Dakar the
two men got their first encourage-
ment. On their battery-powered radio
they picked up the _ broadcasting
station in Barbados, some 400 miles
to the northwest. They held to their
course, however, and drove through
the Windward Island chain north of
Tobago and entered the Caribbean.

Still swept along by wind and
wave, they skirted the northeast
coast of Venezuela, passed inside the
Isla de Margarita and pounded past
Curacao where the lights of the
island reflected off the lowering
black storm clouds.

On the night of Feb. 20, from the
top of a hissing wave, they caught
their first glimpse of the light on
Colorado Point. Riding the current
they swept around the point and beat
their way up the southwest shore
to San Nicolas Harbor and anchored
for the night. The crossing, some
38000 miles, had taken 28 days.

"We may have set a small-boat
record for the distance,” Hans Lichte,
owner and captain of the ”Nord-
stern,” said later as he relaxed in
the book-lined cabin of his boat.

"We had storm-force winds all the
way and every sea looked as though
it would break right on top of us,
but the ’Nordstern’ — that’s German
for North Star rode every one.
We drove her hard, but she never
faltered.”

Mr. Lichte, a more experienced
seaman than Florian Leyrer who
had joined the ’Nordstern” at Dakar,
spent as many as 20 straight hours
at the helm bundled in an overcoat
and wrapped in a blanket. Safely at
anchor, he found he still could not
straighten the cramped fingers of
his left hand with which he had held
the tiller.

Mr. Lichte, an author who before
World War II traveled the world to
write about Germans abroad, started
this trip last May. An earlier acci-
dent, however, almost shattered his
plans of sailing to the South Seas.

Since his youth Mr. Lichte had
been an avid amateur yachtsman. In
the 1930’s he owned a yawl in which
he cruised the Mediterranean and
had sailed other small boats all over
the world. So he turned to the sea
after the war to earn money to buy
another small boat he could sail to
Tahiti where he had decided to spend
the rest of his life.

He shipped as a crew member of a
freighter, calculating he could save
the major portion of his wages.
Within two years he had banked
enough to buy a boat and finance the
trip when, in a shipboard accident,
he lost his right leg.

When he left the hospital he was
still determined to make the trip
despite the loss of his leg. He found,
though the accident had eaten into
his savings, he still had enough
money for a boat but little for travel-
ing expenses.

In Bremen he located an eight-ton,
steel-hulled cutter built five years
before. Staunch, seaworthy, rigged
so one man could sail it, the
"Nordstern” fitted his neeGs and he
bought it. Saying good-bye to his
19-year-old son who was studying to
be an optical engineer, he sailed with
two friends from Bremen May 8.

The friends returned home
La Coruna, Spain and Mr. Lichte
sailed alone from La Coruna to
Leixoes in Portugal. "I was at the
helm for 50 straight hours on that

from

trip,” he said, "and realized I could
not make the rest of the voyage
alone.”

In Leixoes he picked up a fellow
German who accompanied him as far
as Dakar. There Mr. Lichte looked
around for another traveler and
found Mr. Leyrer, a radio technician
who wanted to go to South America.

In Aruba the two men parted and
once again Mr. Lichte took up the
hunt for a shipmate to sai! with him
to Panama, through the canal to the
Galapagos Islands and then through
the South Seas to Tahiti.

Mr. Lichte, now 48, plans to spend
the rest of his life in the islands. A
student of history and ethnology, he
fi became interested in the Poly-
nesians, Maoris and other peoples of
the area when he traveled the Pacifi
before the war.

He plans to live on his boat and
augment the monthly pension he
receives for the loss of his leg by
pearl fishing, f ting, cd
mail and passengers to the smaller
islands which have no regular ser-
vice and by writing. He has tentative
agreements with eral
and historical associations.

Meanwhile he is in Aruba hoping
to find someone who wants to sail
to Tahiti and — with Lago’s help —
readying the ’Nordstern” for the
8000-mile voyage which lies ahead.

SOMETHING NEW entered the lives of Pete Bareno and Larry Kock

last month. The two Allentown students were introduced to frozen

lakes and ice skates. A little unsteady at first, they soon found the

ice skating to be a great deal of fun, but also a sport that takes
a great deal of practice.
