Idea to Check to Money...

A Capital



CYI Story





STEFAN TROMP, CYI Class I capital award winner receives his certi-
ficate and check from President O. Mingus. From Mr. Mingus’ office,
Mr. Tromp went to the cashier’s window where he cashed the CYI check
for one thousand new guilders, all representative of an idea that paid off.
STEFAN TROMP, ganador di CYI su premio capital di Clase I, ta recibi

su certificado y cheque for di Presid

ente O. Mingus. For di Sr. Mingus su

oficina Sr. Tromp a bai pa e ventana di cahero unda el a cobra e cheque

di CYI pa un mil florin nobo, tur

representando loke un idea a paga.



Sometime in May, 1955, Stefan
Tromp, machinist in the Mechanical
Department, had an idea. It had to
do with facilitating the installation
of couplings and pulleys by attach-
ing a shaft puller. Among
things it eliminated mushrooming of
parts that often accompanied the
tedious installation of couplings and
pulleys. Thinking of the good that
could come of his idea, Mr. Tromp
submitted his thought in writing to
Lago’s Coin Your Idea program. If
was dated May 31, 1955.

Two months later Mr. Tromp was
notified that his CYI had not only
been accepted by the investigating
committee, but had earned Fls. 600
for its suggestor. Just about a year
later, August, 1956, Mr. Tromp re-

ceived a supplemental award worth
another Fls. 600.

And to top it all off, Mr. Tromp
took down the Class I capital award
| good for Fls. 1000. His three awards
on one suggestion brought him a to-
| tal of Fils. 2200. President O. Mingus
| Presented Mr. Tromp his capital
|award check of Fls. 1000 March 4.
From Mr. Mingus’ office, Mr. Tromp
journeyed downstairs in the General
| Office Building to the cashier’s win-
| dow. This represented the last Lago
| stop of his idea. Here he exchanged
the check for 10 new, crisp, green
and blue one hundred guilder notes.

This was the final step of an idea
| that turned into a check that turned
|into one thousand guilders for Ste-
| fan Tromp.

Aruba Scholarship Group Plans Fund Drive

At this moment in Holland and
the United States six Aruba
boys are hard at work in univer-
sity studies. When they are finish-
ed most of them will return to
their island as useful and valu-
able citizens, able to contribute
much to Aruba’s future.

The Aruba Scholarship Founda-
tion can lay claim to some of the
credit for helping these young

people on to advanced education. All|
six have been helped in some way |
by the foundation, and represent the |
first fruits of this organization's ef-
forts to place college-trained Aru-
bans in Aruba’s future.

Last July, when the foundation
was approved by the government
ihe it was ready to begin its work,



there were more applicants for aid
than there was aid to give. Now, to |

prepare for the coming school year
the foundation is launching its first
all-out drive for funds. The goal has
been set at Fls. 32,000, which foun-
dation President J. H. Beaujon esti-
mates will be enough for the year’s
needs. The drive will last from
March 28 to April 15.

To be eligible for aid the appli-
cant—either boy or girl must be

These words, spoken by Acting |
Governor F. E. J. van der Valk in
opening the First Caribbean Con-
ference on Mental Health, set the
keynote of the Conference and a
guide to its goals.

During the five day meeting in
Aruba, March 14-19, leaders in the
fields of mental health, medicine,
psychology and sociology undertook
to explore the whole field of mental
health in the Caribbean.

Dr. J. H. Rees, of London, Chair-
man of the World Federation of
Mental Health, was chairman of the
conference. A number of Lago em-
ployees, including Dr. Robert Turf-
boer, Dr. William Kendall, Max
Croes, Rev. D. R. Evans and T. F.
Hagerty are members of the Aruba
Mental Health Society, host group
for the sessions.

The first meeting featured an ad-
dress by the distinguished Dr. Rees.
Later that day informal discussions
relating to Caribbean problems took
up the delegates’ attention.

Lago Participates
On March 18 the Conference moved
to Lago for the day, and Lago’s
management took part in panel dis-
cussions on Industrial Hygiene. Dr.
Rees chairmanned informal discus-
sions at the

The number of Lago 30-year em-
ployees keeps getting larger and
larger. The latest to join the elite
ranks of long service men and wo-

house. He was presented his service
emblem and certificate at the March
8 meeting of Management Staff.

and extending to criminality.



; attending an open meeting in Lago

High School auditorium on the sub-
ject "What is Mental Health”.
Attempting first to answer the
question, Dr. A. Poslavsky of the
University of Utrecht pointed out
the changes in public attitudes that
came about with increasing aware-
ness of mental] health problems. For
example, he said, the drunkard and
criminal are no longer considered
people who get what they deserve.
Now they are looked upon as ptople
who need society's help, and further
pose the question to society of how
they came to fall. "Mental health,”

he said, "is how man thinks with
himself, his friends, his community,
his God.”

Dr. B. Schaffner, an educator

from New York, observed at the dis-
cussion that mental health began
early in a human being. ’’Mental
health—and mental diseases—start
with the infant,” he said. "A child
develops his basic attitudes in the
first ten years, the all-important for-
mative period when the child adopts
influences that will guide his actions
to a large degree when he bumps in-
to life in his later years.’’ There are
solid indications of a child’s mental
health. "It is the child’s enthusiasm





for life, a feeling of love—to love

To Lead Off Seminars

A man who has brought creative
and productive chunks

thinking to the oil industry in big

will kick off the first of three seminar pro-

grams offered Lago employecs this year by the Seminar Committee

The course appropriately is called

‘Creative Thinking.”

He is Charles H. Clark of the Ethyl Corporation who has demon-

strated the "brainstorming" techni-
que of developing ideas to a number
of oil companies, and who is the
author of the first college textbook,
"Applied Imagination’, creative
thinking. The course he teaches will
last from June 10 to July 5.
Following immediately behind in
sequence is the the three
arranged by the commit-
Human Relations. This course,
led by Professor Robert Blake of the
University of Texas, will be divided
into two sections. The first part will
be in the nature of a follow-up for
those who completed Dr. Goodson's
similar in the fall of 1955;
the second part will be for beginners

its membership Feb. 9. In a cere-

mony that included General Super-
intendent F. W. Switzer and provi-

irman

Lago Heights Club facilities changed
hands from Lago sponsored admi-
nistration to control within’ the

club’s membership







The early evening ceremony start-
ed outside the club with pert little
Miss Valli Wever, daughter of the
club’s provisional chairman, present-
ing Mr. § r a pair of scissors
with which he cut the ribbon
stretched across the front door. Mr
Switzer then handed Mr. Wever the
key to the club; the chairman ac-

cepted and invited the guests to in-
spect the refurbished club.



R. A. van Blarcum, as master of
ceremonies, introduced speakers in
the club’s auditorium. There Mr.
Switzer, Mr. Wever and Colony Ser-
vice Department Manager N. M.
Shirley all wished the club’s new
management well in future endea-
vors. From the auditorium, the

for club members

Mr. Wever is presently chairman

ot an eight-man Board of Governors.



It is a provisional board that for-
merly made up the Lago Heights
Advisory Committee and the Lago
Heights Activities Committee. The
board will administer necessary ad-
ministration until October. At the
end of this six-month period, a ge-

neral election will be held of all club

members for a new committee. The
tull committee as it now stands will
not be in office the entire six
months, however. The constitution
of the new club allows for a seven-
man committee and not eight. Come
April 4, Mr. Wever will resign his
post. Mr. van Blarcum, present vice-
chairman will take over as chairman’

ot a seven-man committee.
The present committee, in addi-
tion of Mr. Wever and Mr. van Blar.

decided to detach the club’s admi-

pany, the Lago Club Activities Com-
mittee was its guiding light. This
group was the same as the Lago
Heights Advisory Committee, but
{handled club activities under the
club name. Now the club will be
tended by its Board of Governors
who will be directly responsible for
the club’s welfare to its members and
shareholders. It is anticipated that
many of the old club's favorite acti-
vities will be continued under the
|new management.

| Two hundred club shares were
|sold at Fls. 50 a piece giving the
club a starting kitty of Fls. 10,000.
In addition to overhauling the build-
jing, the company also provided the
club with completely stocked shelves.

Within the building besides the
|auditorium are a lounge, a bar and

desk were magazines, books, candies
and the like may be purchased. To
the west side of the building is the
|patio and dance area. This is also
the dining location. Other facilities
are tennis courts, basketball court
and football and baseball field.

At the time of its 1941 opening,
the club represented an investment
ot $26,000. Today it is well over

On meet days usually 12 to 16

Idea to Check to Money...

A Capital



CYI Story





STEFAN TROMP, CYI Class I capital award winner receives his certi-
ficate and check from President O. Mingus. From Mr. Mingus’ office,
Mr. Tromp went to the cashier’s window where he cashed the CYI check
for one thousand new guilders, all representative of an idea that paid off.
STEFAN TROMP, ganador di CYI su premio capital di Clase I, ta recibi

su certificado y cheque for di Presid

ente O. Mingus. For di Sr. Mingus su

oficina Sr. Tromp a bai pa e ventana di cahero unda el a cobra e cheque

di CYI pa un mil florin nobo, tur

representando loke un idea a paga.



Sometime in May, 1955, Stefan
Tromp, machinist in the Mechanical
Department, had an idea. It had to
do with facilitating the installation
of couplings and pulleys by attach-
ing a shaft puller. Among
things it eliminated mushrooming of
parts that often accompanied the
tedious installation of couplings and
pulleys. Thinking of the good that
could come of his idea, Mr. Tromp
submitted his thought in writing to
Lago’s Coin Your Idea program. If
was dated May 31, 1955.

Two months later Mr. Tromp was
notified that his CYI had not only
been accepted by the investigating
committee, but had earned Fls. 600
for its suggestor. Just about a year
later, August, 1956, Mr. Tromp re-

ceived a supplemental award worth
another Fls. 600.

And to top it all off, Mr. Tromp
took down the Class I capital award
| good for Fls. 1000. His three awards
on one suggestion brought him a to-
| tal of Fils. 2200. President O. Mingus
| Presented Mr. Tromp his capital
|award check of Fls. 1000 March 4.
From Mr. Mingus’ office, Mr. Tromp
journeyed downstairs in the General
| Office Building to the cashier’s win-
| dow. This represented the last Lago
| stop of his idea. Here he exchanged
the check for 10 new, crisp, green
and blue one hundred guilder notes.

This was the final step of an idea
| that turned into a check that turned
|into one thousand guilders for Ste-
| fan Tromp.

Aruba Scholarship Group Plans Fund Drive

At this moment in Holland and
the United States six Aruba
boys are hard at work in univer-
sity studies. When they are finish-
ed most of them will return to
their island as useful and valu-
able citizens, able to contribute
much to Aruba’s future.

The Aruba Scholarship Founda-
tion can lay claim to some of the
credit for helping these young

people on to advanced education. All|
six have been helped in some way |
by the foundation, and represent the |
first fruits of this organization's ef-
forts to place college-trained Aru-
bans in Aruba’s future.

Last July, when the foundation
was approved by the government
ihe it was ready to begin its work,



there were more applicants for aid
than there was aid to give. Now, to |

prepare for the coming school year
the foundation is launching its first
all-out drive for funds. The goal has
been set at Fls. 32,000, which foun-
dation President J. H. Beaujon esti-
mates will be enough for the year’s
needs. The drive will last from
March 28 to April 15.

cant—either boy or girl must be

These words, spoken by Acting |
Governor F. E. J. van der Valk in
opening the First Caribbean Con-
ference on Mental Health, set the
keynote of the Conference and a
guide to its goals.

During the five day meeting in
Aruba, March 14-19, leaders in the
fields of mental health, medicine,
psychology and sociology undertook
to explore the whole field of mental
health in the Caribbean.

Dr. J. H. Rees, of London, Chair-
man of the World Federation of
Mental Health, was chairman of the
conference. A number of Lago em-
ployees, including Dr. Robert Turf-
boer, Dr. William Kendall, Max
Croes, Rev. D. R. Evans and T. F.
Hagerty are members of the Aruba
Mental Health Society, host group
for the sessions.

The first meeting featured an ad-
dress by the distinguished Dr. Rees.
Later that day informal discussions
relating to Caribbean problems took
up the delegates’ attention.

Lago Participates
On March 18 the Conference moved
to Lago for the day, and Lago’s
management took part in panel dis-
cussions on Industrial Hygiene. Dr.
Rees chairmanned informal discus-
sions at the

The number of Lago 30-year em-

house. He was presented his service
emblem and certificate at the March
8 meeting of Management Staff.

and extending to criminality.



; attending an open meeting in Lago

High School auditorium on the sub-
ject "What is Mental Health”.
Attempting first to answer the
question, Dr. A. Poslavsky of the
University of Utrecht pointed out
the changes in public attitudes that
came about with increasing aware-
ness of mental] health problems. For
example, he said, the drunkard and
criminal are no longer considered
people who get what they deserve.
Now they are looked upon as ptople
who need society's help, and further
pose the question to society of how
they came to fall. "Mental health,”

he said, "is how man thinks with
himself, his friends, his community,
his God.”

Dr. B. Schaffner, an educator

from New York, observed at the dis-
cussion that mental health began
early in a human being. ’’Mental
health—and mental diseases—start
with the infant,” he said. "A child
develops his basic attitudes in the
first ten years, the all-important for-
mative period when the child adopts
influences that will guide his actions
to a large degree when he bumps in-
to life in his later years.’’ There are
solid indications of a child’s mental
health. "It is the child’s enthusiasm

To Lead Off Seminars

A man who has brought creative
and productive chunks

thinking to the oil industry in big

will kick off the first of three seminar pro-

grams offered Lago employecs this year by the Seminar Committee

The course appropriately is called

‘Creative Thinking.”

He is Charles H. Clark of the Ethyl Corporation who has demon-

strated the "brainstorming" techni-
que of developing ideas to a number
of oil companies, and who is the
author of the first college textbook,
"Applied Imagination’, creative
thinking. The course he teaches will
last from June 10 to July 5.
Following immediately behind in
sequence is the the three
arranged by the commit-
Human Relations. This course,
led by Professor Robert Blake of the
University of Texas, will be divided
into two sections. The first part will
be in the nature of a follow-up for
those who completed Dr. Goodson's
similar in the fall of 1955;
the second part will be for beginners

On meet days usually 12 to 16

The animals are all privately owned
with the exception of a few owned
and raced by the Association as an
incentive to private horse fanciers.

One such horse, brought to Aruba
from Curacao by the Association and
then sold to an enthusiast here, was
struck by tragedy during one of
February races. The horse, Prince,
