|Employee Requirements Filled



Lago Hiring Curtailed; Employment Office
Closed; ATS, LVS Students Terminated

Employment of additional Lago
personnel has been curtailed.

The management decision, an-
nounced May 23, is the result of
the company being unable under
present conditions to accept any
new applications for employment
Immediate steps not to iner e the
personnel rolls took two forms: (1)
this year’s Lago Vocational School
graduates and temporary Aruba
Technical School employees will be






terminated June 15, and, (2) the
employment office at Gate 1 was
closed

The outlook on Lago's present
employee requirements made it ne-
cessary to curtail the hiring of ad-
ditional employees. Signs reading

"Closed” and "No Applications For
Employment Accepted” were posted
the morning of May 23 at the em-
ployment office.

Coincident with the
the Lago Vocational
Aruba Technical
were notified they
minated. With the two groups of
students, 43 are involved. Thirty-
three of the 36 LVS graduates and
all 10 temporary ATS fall under the
termination. Three vocational school
students will be retained to fill three
openings.

Although Lago expressed its re-
gret at having to release young men
who have been well prepared for
piobs at Lago, it cannot justify em-
ploying them when conditions
actually indicate a possible need for
further reductions. Under ex ting
conditions there are no jobs for
them. To the students’ great benefit
however, is the fact that they have
received education and training in
trades that are needed in many
parts of the world and can be avail-
able to them throughout their lives.

The LVS boys, regular Lago em-
ployees with vocational student clas-

sign-posting,
School and
School students
were to be ter-

diploma. The ATS students will re-
\ceive certificates. The 10 technical
schoo] students were hired one year
ago as temporary employees under
the condition that at the completion

over

sification, will receive a graduation | borchi, e estudiantenan di Lago Vo-

permanent employees if jobs were
available. This is the fourth group
of ATS students Lago has taken
under such arrangements.

The 36 boys that make up this
year’s vocational schoo] are the last
students in an industrial vocational
school that started in 1935. At its
peak in the late Forties and early
Fifties it had an enrollment of well
400 students whose training
costs mounted to more than one mil-
lion guilders a year. Because of its
efficient and well-organized means
of training boys for industrial jobs
it has attracted and continues to
attract attention from North and
South American and Caribbean en-
terprises involved in similar types of
training.

The school

in 1935 with



opened

30 students. The youngsters of that
era went to class one hour a day
for two years. They studied under
Jan H. Beaujon of the Industrial
Relations Department. The second
class of studenis entered the train-
ing in 1937; they attended classes
two hours a day. In 1939 the first

four-year class began school. It
gradually increased to four full
classes enrolled in school for four

years. The students attended classes
the entire day for the first three
years, and then during the final year
split their day between instruction
on the job in the refinery and in La-
go Vocational School classes.

Since its beginning, the schoo] en-
rolled 1243 students. It graduated
954, almost all of whom are Lago
employees today.

This week the Lago Employee

Council renewed its negotiations

with management on the subject of a general increase for employees,
and declared through its president F. H. Ritfeld that they have no

"each council member will decide

independently on his future course
of action.”
The negotiations were resumed

following the referendum May 15, 16
and 17 which continued the internal
independent employee representa-
tion system.

The members of the council] ini-
tiated the referendum to determine
how solidly their constituents were
behind them. On the ballot voters
were asked to indicate whether they
wished the council to continue to)
represent them. The choice was
therefore between the LEC on one
side and no system at all on the)
other. |

Of the total 4965 ballots cast, the |
votes for LEC representation were
2336, votes against the system 2474.
Under the terms of the contract
2672 votes were needed to have com-
pany recognition withdrawn from)
the LEC. That number equals 50%
of the eligible employees plus one
vote.

Heaviest voting of the three days
took place at the polling place near
the General Office Building, where
825 employees cast ballots. Of these
546 voted for the LEC, 252 against,
and 27 were invalid. At the hospital,
out of 217 votes cast, the LEC had
148 for, 60 against and 9 invalid.

If, after the conclusion of current
negotiations on the wage increase,
all 13 members of the council should
resign, alternate members will be
asked to serve on the council.
Should the number of resignations
exceed the number of alternates,
new elections to fill the vacancies
will be held as soon as_ possible.
Even if all 13 members should re-
sign, the LEC system would remain
in effect.

While the Lago referendum was
going on a somewhat similar elec-



tion was taking place in the Bay-
way refinery. There, in a National |
Labor Relations Board certification
vote, employees were choosing be-
tween the independent representa-
tion system and the Oil, Chemical
and Atomic Workers union of the
CIO. With 93 per cent participation,
the employees voted to be represent-

Lago Directors,
Officers Re-Elected |

Directors and officers of Lago
Oil & Transport Co., Ltl. were
re-elected at annual meetings re-



cently.
At the annual shareholders’ meet-
ing April 29, F. C. Donovan, F. E.
Griffin, O. S. Mingus, W. A. Mur- |
ray and F. W. Switzer were re-|
elected directors of the company.
The Board of Directors, on May
14, re-elected the following officers:
president, O. S. Mingus; executive
vice president, F. BE. Griffin; vice
president, C. E. Lanning; secretary,
C. B. Garber; treasurer, C. B. Gar- |
ber. D. C. Mook, New York, was re-
appointed assistant secretary, and

stant secretary and assistant
treasurer.



| intention of resigning en masse until the negotiations are concluded.
"When the matter of the increase

is settled,” Mr. Ritfeld said,



ed on the independent basis,
votes to 825.

Traditionally the independent sy-
stem has worked best for a number
of companies for many years, in-
cluding Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey) and its affiliates. The basic

1123

philosophy behind the system is
that employees on the spot know
their own problems better than an

internationally affiliated union pos-

| sible could, and that workers in one

plant or company need not be af-
fected by conditions in another, as
happens in the international union.

First Seminar

The man who once told 200 U. S.

vertising’s leading
figures, involves

ideas matter
how ridiculous are
accepted, the theo-
ry being that one idea begets an-
other, and the solution group

The Short And Busy

These Tiny Creatures Work A
Long Day with No Overtime

If man followcd tne example of the industrious bee, there is quite
literally nothing he could not accomplish. But imitating the bee would
also have a detrimental effect on man, because the work load would
kill him.

In some aspects the bee is man’s superior. She has, for example, an

infallible sense of direction, which
permits her to fly in a string-
straight line from a nectar supply
to her hive; a near perfect commu-
nication system with her
enabling her to tell them exactly
where a new nectar supply is lo-
cated. She is an accomplished build-
er, and a very even-tempered crea-
ture, slow to anger, but swift to do
something
gered.
Nobody in Aruba has greater res-
pect or admiration for the bee and
her works than Alfred Vieira, who
has turned a boyhood hobby into a
profitable side business, and now
has 38 hives scattered over the is-
land, housing hundreds of thou-
sands—millions, maybe, of bees.
Mr. Vieira, whose honey is on
sale at both commissaries and in
other stores on the island, has been
beekeeping for 29 years, nine years
before he came to Aruba from Bri-
tish Guiana. He has taken a leaf
from the bee’s book on industry: he
holds a full time job with Lago as
an operator; he operates a radio-

phonograph sales and service busi- |

ness, keeps his bees, and does his
own carpentry and building.

Division Of Work

During the time of greatest
honey activity—called a "honey
flow’—bees will work 20 hours a
day. From the time the bee ingests
the nectar from the blossoms (best
ones in Aruba: sea grapes, sage)
production takes several steps, half
being the bee’s, half the beekeeper’s.

The change from nectar to honey
is a simple process: digestion. Be-
tween the blossom and the hive this
change takes place inside the bee,
and he deposits the honey in the
cells of the hive. The bee actually
has two stomachs: one for transpor-
ting the nectar, and the other for
her normal digestive functions.

When enough cells in the comb are
filled, the bees seal them over with
}a wax, letting the honey age, or
cure. With that, the bee’s work in
production ends, and they turn the
job over to Mr. Vieira.

He takes the sealed-up combs,
slices off the wax cap with a steam
knife, and locks it in a centrifuge.
The whirling action throws the
| honey out to be strained and drain-
ed into tanks, and there it stays un-
| til it is bottled. It needs no further
purification to be edible.

How often does this go on in a year?
How much honey comes from the
hives? |

In Aruba Mr. Vieira gets three or
four harvests a year if there has
been enough rain. And in a good
year, as much as 25 gallons of
honey will be the yield from a single
strong hive. The job of grappling
with the bees’ boxes is made great-
er by the weight: one gallon is equal
to 12 to 14 pounds.

Stings

First among questions about bees
| is: what about stings? ’'Bees,
|says one authority, are the plea-
santest, most sociable, most genial
| and best-natured little beings... when
they are understood.” But beware |
of them after a rainstorm or to-|
ward night on cool days, especially
jif intruding on their hives. Mr.
Vieira himself has been stung count-
less times, especially on one not- |
able occasion when 20 hives fell |
over. By now however he has be-
come immune to stings to such an
extent that there won't even be a
swelling.

A curious fact about bee stings
is that they can be fatal to both hu-
|man beings and animals. Mr. Vieira
|has seen donkeys and cows stung}
to death right before his eyes, the
whole killing taking place in a few

moments. But bees,

says sting-proof Mr.

In each hive there are three kinds
of bees: the ruler, the only one of
her kind, the queen. Then there are
the workers, who gather the nectar,
and wax from the flowers,
feed the young, protect the hive and
build the combs. They also play an
important part in pollinating the
blossoms, producing more fruit.
These work so hard that their life
span is a mere six months, or even
less in the honey flow. Last is the
drone, the only males in the colony.
They have but one function, and
only one drone performs that, mating
with the queen. The others, for the
rost of their lives, do nothing at all
except eat honey. But when a honey
flow is ended, the workers drive
them out of the hive to starve to
death. Hardly any drones die a na-
tural death. The sole distinction of
a drone is the possession of ey-s
that can rotate 360 degrees. He

but she is never allowed it by the

Everybody Loves A Circus

Yes, not only does everybody love
a circus—such as the Circus Brasil, |
which played Aruba, and whose
activities are shown here—every-
body has always loved a circus,

Dating from Roman times, two or
three centuries before Christ, the
circus had attracted countless num-
bers of people to witness such
events as chariot races, and fighting
with wild animals, Today’s circus
as entertainment bears little resem-
blance to Caesar’s circus. Animal
acts, clowns, acrobats, displays of
oddities, refreshments, and a con-
stant high level of excitement mark
the circus of today.

The names most often thought of

in connection with a circus are Bar-

and in 1919 brought both shows to-

num and Bailey, and the Ringling | gethor under the name it now holds
Brothers. Beginning in 1882, the se- |

ven Ringlings developed their orga-
nization until it was equal in size
and popularity to any in the world.
But P. T. Barnum, the _ world-
renowned museum operator, com-
bined with James A. Bailey in 1870
to put together a show that really
set the pace style for all circuses
since. Bailey, the gifted showman,
introduced the third ring, and va-
rious other innovations, and toured
Europe at the head of the largest
circus ever put together. The Ring-
ling Brothers bought Barnum &
Bailey's in 1907 after Bailey’s death,

NOT MANY circuses can boast such a leggy display.

NO HOPI circo por duna un presentacion manera esaki.

GOING ON throughout the show were breathtaking acts like these: a
trained bear, above, and balancing cyclists, below.

DURANTE henter e actonan tabatin numeronan manera e siguiente: un
beer entrena, ariba, y cyclistanan balanza, abao.

The Circus Train

In the days before soaring costs
made it financially impossible to
continue, the circus train was the
most wonderful thing in the world
to millions of people. With its long
line of red and yellow cars, its early
morning arrival and setting up, the
sun, the dust, the noise, the sad-
faced clowns, the glamorous lion-
tamers, elephants trumpeting in the
sun, wide-eyed children carrying
swaths of pink cotton candy, with all
these sounds and sights, the circus
stayed in a person’s mind long after
he left childhood behind. No one who

AS LUMBERING and

considerable grace if

ever sat in the bleachers, craning
his neck upward to see the bold
trapeze artists could ever forget
their calm bravery and assurance.
No one can ever forget the circus.

The Circus de Brasil stopped in
Aruba during the course of a long
Caribbean tour, and set up its tents
in the old RCA football field. Aru-
ba’s folks had the show with them
for nearly a month, ample time to
watch the antics of a trained chimp,
a dancing bear, elephants, trainers,
and a new twist in circuses, a cho-
rus line.

The troupe arrived here by plane
from Jamaica, and left by the same
means for its next date in Curacao.

Dinny Pails

Pancho Segura

Rosewall, Kramer, Segura, Pails...these great names in tennis .
will play an exhibition in Lago Sport Park June 12. Prome Seminar

There isn’t a major tennis title
at least once by these great stars.

sional tour under the leadership of player-promoter Jack Kramer, they |

are playing before tennis fans in the
United States and South America.

Pairings for the Aruba matches
are not yet known, but there will
be two singles matches and
doubles.

Ken Rosewall, by the end of last
year, was ranked as the best ama-
teur tennis player in the world, bet-
ter even than Lew Hoad, whom he
beat for the U. S. singles title. He
has the best backhand since Don
Budge, and in Davis Cup play for
Australia, won six out of eight
singles matches. In the first pro
tournament he beat Tony Trabert
and Pancho Gonzales in singles, and
teamed up with Rex Hartwig to win
the doubles crown in the same event.

Kramer, years past his prime, can
still be ranked on his best days as
the world’s best player. Up to 1947,
when he turned professional he had
won a dozen championships, includ-
ing U. S. men’s doubles three times,
men’s singles twice, Wimbledon sin-

gles and doubles. He played on three |

U. S Davis Cup teams. He started
the professional tour in 1947, and
in the next few years steadily whip-
ped Bobby Riggs, Gonzales, Pancho
Segura and Frank Sedgman. He
now concentrates on promotion, but
still plays on occasion.

Segura, the minute Ecuadorian,
brings to the court a two-handed
grip on his racket that permits him
to unload some devastating shots on
his opponent. He has more than a
freakish grip to recommend him,
however. He didn’t fully develop un-
til he turned pro in 1947, even
though he had won the U. S. inter-
collegiate championship three years
in a row. In a big professional tour-
nament in Australia he beat Hart
wig, Gonzales and Sedgman in suc-
cessive matches.

Dinny Pails is the player’s player.
An astute coach and student of the
game, he has worked with Italian
German and Belgian Dav's Cup
teams as advisor-coach. He has won
or almost won nearly all of the
major titles,
lian singles championship from one
of the toughest fields ever ass2m-
blad. In his one U. S. pro tour he
beat Segura.

Seats for the local matches are
priced at Fils. 5 and Fis. 2 and can
be bought from Eddie Croes, Ron
Smith, A. J. M. Smits, or at Esso
Club Bookstore, De Wit Bookstore,
or from Lago Sport Park Board
members.

|Employee Requirements Filled



Lago Hiring Curtailed; Employment Office
Closed; ATS, LVS Students Terminated

Employment of additional Lago
personnel has been curtailed.

The management decision, an-
nounced May 23, is the result of
the company being unable under
present conditions to accept any
new applications for employment
Immediate steps not to iner e the
personnel rolls took two forms: (1)
this year’s Lago Vocational School
graduates and temporary Aruba
Technical School employees will be






terminated June 15, and, (2) the
employment office at Gate 1 was
closed

The outlook on Lago's present
employee requirements made it ne-
cessary to curtail the hiring of ad-
ditional employees. Signs reading

"Closed” and "No Applications For
Employment Accepted” were posted
the morning of May 23 at the em-
ployment office.

Coincident with the
the Lago Vocational
Aruba Technical
were notified they
minated. With the two groups of
students, 43 are involved. Thirty-
three of the 36 LVS graduates and
all 10 temporary ATS fall under the
termination. Three vocational school
students will be retained to fill three
openings.

Although Lago expressed its re-
gret at having to release young men
who have been well prepared for
piobs at Lago, it cannot justify em-
ploying them when conditions
actually indicate a possible need for
further reductions. Under ex ting
conditions there are no jobs for
them. To the students’ great benefit
however, is the fact that they have
received education and training in
trades that are needed in many
parts of the world and can be avail-
able to them throughout their lives.

The LVS boys, regular Lago em-
ployees with vocational student clas-

sign-posting,
School and
School students
were to be ter-

diploma. The ATS students will re-
\ceive certificates. The 10 technical
schoo] students were hired one year
ago as temporary employees under
the condition that at the completion

over

sification, will receive a graduation | borchi, e estudiantenan di Lago Vo-

permanent employees if jobs were
available. This is the fourth group
of ATS students Lago has taken
under such arrangements.

The 36 boys that make up this
year’s vocational schoo] are the last
students in an industrial vocational
school that started in 1935. At its
peak in the late Forties and early
Fifties it had an enrollment of well
400 students whose training
costs mounted to more than one mil-
lion guilders a year. Because of its
efficient and well-organized means
of training boys for industrial jobs
it has attracted and continues to
attract attention from North and
South American and Caribbean en-
terprises involved in similar types of
training.

The school

in 1935 with



opened

30 students. The youngsters of that
era went to class one hour a day
for two years. They studied under
Jan H. Beaujon of the Industrial
Relations Department. The second
class of studenis entered the train-
ing in 1937; they attended classes
two hours a day. In 1939 the first

four-year class began school. It
gradually increased to four full
classes enrolled in school for four

years. The students attended classes
the entire day for the first three
years, and then during the final year
split their day between instruction
on the job in the refinery and in La-
go Vocational School classes.

Since its beginning, the schoo] en-
rolled 1243 students. It graduated
954, almost all of whom are Lago
employees today.

This week the Lago Employee

Council renewed its negotiations

with management on the subject of a general increase for employees,
and declared through its president F. H. Ritfeld that they have no

"each council member will decide

independently on his future course
of action.”
The negotiations were resumed

following the referendum May 15, 16
and 17 which continued the internal
independent employee representa-
tion system.

The members of the council] ini-
tiated the referendum to determine
how solidly their constituents were
behind them. On the ballot voters
were asked to indicate whether they
wished the council to continue to)
represent them. The choice was
therefore between the LEC on one
side and no system at all on the)
other. |

Of the total 4965 ballots cast, the |
votes for LEC representation were
2336, votes against the system 2474.
Under the terms of the contract
2672 votes were needed to have com-
pany recognition withdrawn from)
the LEC. That number equals 50%
of the eligible employees plus one
vote.

Heaviest voting of the three days
took place at the polling place near
the General Office Building, where
825 employees cast ballots. Of these
546 voted for the LEC, 252 against,
and 27 were invalid. At the hospital,
out of 217 votes cast, the LEC had
148 for, 60 against and 9 invalid.

If, after the conclusion of current
negotiations on the wage increase,
all 13 members of the council should
resign, alternate members will be
asked to serve on the council.
Should the number of resignations
exceed the number of alternates,
new elections to fill the vacancies
will be held as soon as_ possible.
Even if all 13 members should re-
sign, the LEC system would remain
in effect.

While the Lago referendum was
going on a somewhat similar elec-



tion was taking place in the Bay-
way refinery. There, in a National |
Labor Relations Board certification
vote, employees were choosing be-
tween the independent representa-
tion system and the Oil, Chemical
and Atomic Workers union of the
CIO. With 93 per cent participation,
the employees voted to be represent-

At the annual shareholders’ meet-
ing April 29, F. C. Donovan, F. E.
Griffin, O. S. Mingus, W. A. Mur- |
ray and F. W. Switzer were re-|
elected directors of the company.
The Board of Directors, on May
14, re-elected the following officers:
president, O. S. Mingus; executive
vice president, F. BE. Griffin; vice
president, C. E. Lanning; secretary,

| intention of resigning en masse until the negotiations are concluded.
"When the matter of the increase

is settled,” Mr. Ritfeld said,



ed on the independent basis,
votes to 825.

Traditionally the independent sy-
stem has worked best for a number
of companies for many years, in-
cluding Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey) and its affiliates. The basic

1123

philosophy behind the system is
that employees on the spot know
their own problems better than an

internationally affiliated union pos-

| sible could, and that workers in one

plant or company need not be af-
fected by conditions in another, as
happens in the international union.

The Short And Busy

These Tiny Creatures Work A
Long Day with No Overtime

If man followcd tne example of the industrious bee, there is quite
literally nothing he could not accomplish. But imitating the bee would
also have a detrimental effect on man, because the work load would
kill him.

In some aspects the bee is man’s superior. She has, for example, an

June 1, 1957

Life of Miss Bee



infallible sense of direction, which
permits her to fly in a string-
straight line from a nectar supply
to her hive; a near perfect commu-
nication system with her
enabling her to tell them exactly
where a new nectar supply is lo-
cated. She is an accomplished build-
er, and a very even-tempered crea-
ture, slow to anger, but swift to do
something
gered.
Nobody in Aruba has greater res-
pect or admiration for the bee and
her works than Alfred Vieira, who
has turned a boyhood hobby into a
profitable side business, and now
has 38 hives scattered over the is-
land, housing hundreds of thou-
sands—millions, maybe, of bees.
Mr. Vieira, whose honey is on
sale at both commissaries and in
other stores on the island, has been
beekeeping for 29 years, nine years
before he came to Aruba from Bri-
tish Guiana. He has taken a leaf
from the bee’s book on industry: he
holds a full time job with Lago as
an operator; he operates a radio-

phonograph sales and service busi- |

ness, keeps his bees, and does his
own carpentry and building.

Division Of Work

During the time of greatest
honey activity—called a "honey
flow’—bees will work 20 hours a
day. From the time the bee ingests
the nectar from the blossoms (best
ones in Aruba: sea grapes, sage)
production takes several steps, half
being the bee’s, half the beekeeper’s.

The change from nectar to honey
is a simple process: digestion. Be-
tween the blossom and the hive this
change takes place inside the bee,
and he deposits the honey in the
cells of the hive. The bee actually
has two stomachs: one for transpor-
ting the nectar, and the other for
her normal digestive functions.

EASILY RECOGNIZED by her size, the queen bee (i

When enough cells in the comb are
filled, the bees seal them over with
}a wax, letting the honey age, or
cure. With that, the bee’s work in
production ends, and they turn the
job over to Mr. Vieira.

He takes the sealed-up combs,
slices off the wax cap with a steam
knife, and locks it in a centrifuge.
The whirling action throws the
| honey out to be strained and drain-
ed into tanks, and there it stays un-
| til it is bottled. It needs no further
purification to be edible.

How often does this go on in a year?
How much honey comes from the
hives? |

In Aruba Mr. Vieira gets three or
four harvests a year if there has
been enough rain. And in a good
year, as much as 25 gallons of
honey will be the yield from a single
strong hive. The job of grappling
with the bees’ boxes is made great-
er by the weight: one gallon is equal
to 12 to 14 pounds.

Stings

First among questions about bees
| is: what about stings? ’'Bees,
|says one authority, are the plea-
santest, most sociable, most genial
| and best-natured little beings... when
they are understood.” But beware |
of them after a rainstorm or to-|
ward night on cool days, especially
jif intruding on their hives. Mr.
Vieira himself has been stung count-
less times, especially on one not- |
able occasion when 20 hives fell |
over. By now however he has be-
come immune to stings to such an
extent that there won't even be a
swelling.

A curious fact about bee stings
is that they can be fatal to both hu-
|man beings and animals. Mr. Vieira
|has seen donkeys and cows stung}
to death right before his eyes, the
whole killing taking place in a few

says sting-proof Mr.

In each hive there are three kinds
of bees: the ruler, the only one of
her kind, the queen. Then there are
the workers, who gather the nectar,
and wax from the flowers,
feed the young, protect the hive and
build the combs. They also play an
important part in pollinating the
blossoms, producing more fruit.
These work so hard that their life
span is a mere six months, or even
less in the honey flow. Last is the
drone, the only males in the colony.
They have but one function, and
only one drone performs that, mating
with the queen. The others, for the
rost of their lives, do nothing at all
except eat honey. But when a honey
flow is ended, the workers drive
them out of the hive to starve to
death. Hardly any drones die a na-
tural death. The sole distinction of
a drone is the possession of ey-s
that can rotate 360 degrees. He
doesn’t even have a sting

but she is never allowed it by the

Everybody Loves A Circus

Yes, not only does everybody love
a circus—such as the Circus Brasil, |
which played Aruba, and whose
activities are shown here—every-
body has always loved a circus,

Dating from Roman times, two or
three centuries before Christ, the
circus had attracted countless num-
bers of people to witness such
events as chariot races, and fighting
with wild animals, Today’s circus
as entertainment bears little resem-
blance to Caesar’s circus. Animal
acts, clowns, acrobats, displays of
oddities, refreshments, and a con-
stant high level of excitement mark
the circus of today.

The names most often thought of

in connection with a circus are Bar-

and in 1919 brought both shows to-

num and Bailey, and the Ringling | gethor under the name it now holds
Brothers. Beginning in 1882, the se- |

ven Ringlings developed their orga-
nization until it was equal in size
and popularity to any in the world.
But P. T. Barnum, the _ world-
renowned museum operator, com-
bined with James A. Bailey in 1870
to put together a show that really
set the pace style for all circuses
since. Bailey, the gifted showman,
introduced the third ring, and va-
rious other innovations, and toured
Europe at the head of the largest
circus ever put together. The Ring-
ling Brothers bought Barnum &
Bailey's in 1907 after Bailey’s death,

NOT MANY circuses can boast such a leggy display.

NO HOPI circo por duna un presentacion manera esaki.

GOING ON throughout the show were breathtaking acts like these: a
trained bear, above, and balancing cyclists, below.

DURANTE henter e actonan tabatin numeronan manera e siguiente: un
beer entrena, ariba, y cyclistanan balanza, abao.

The Circus Train

In the days before soaring costs
made it financially impossible to
continue, the circus train was the
most wonderful thing in the world
to millions of people. With its long
line of red and yellow cars, its early
morning arrival and setting up, the
sun, the dust, the noise, the sad-
faced clowns, the glamorous lion-
tamers, elephants trumpeting in the
sun, wide-eyed children carrying
swaths of pink cotton candy, with all
these sounds and sights, the circus
stayed in a person’s mind long after
he left childhood behind. No one who

AS LUMBERING and
bulky as the elephant is,
(right) he is capable of
considerable grace if
properly trained.

ever sat in the bleachers, craning
his neck upward to see the bold
trapeze artists could ever forget
their calm bravery and assurance.
No one can ever forget the circus.

The Circus de Brasil stopped in
Aruba during the course of a long
Caribbean tour, and set up its tents
in the old RCA football field. Aru-
ba’s folks had the show with them
for nearly a month, ample time to
watch the antics of a trained chimp,
a dancing bear, elephants, trainers,
and a new twist in circuses, a cho-
rus line.

The troupe arrived here by plane
from Jamaica, and left by the same
means for its next date in Curacao.

Rosewall, Kramer, Segura, Pails...these great names in tennis .
will play an exhibition in Lago Sport Park June 12. Prome Seminar

There isn’t a major tennis title
at least once by these great stars.

sional tour under the leadership of player-promoter Jack Kramer, they |

are playing before tennis fans in the
United States and South America.

Pairings for the Aruba matches
are not yet known, but there will
be two singles matches and
doubles.

Ken Rosewall, by the end of last
year, was ranked as the best ama-
teur tennis player in the world, bet-
ter even than Lew Hoad, whom he
beat for the U. S. singles title. He
has the best backhand since Don
Budge, and in Davis Cup play for
Australia, won six out of eight
singles matches. In the first pro
tournament he beat Tony Trabert
and Pancho Gonzales in singles, and
teamed up with Rex Hartwig to win
the doubles crown in the same event.

Kramer, years past his prime, can
still be ranked on his best days as
the world’s best player. Up to 1947,
when he turned professional he had
won a dozen championships, includ-
ing U. S. men’s doubles three times,
men’s singles twice, Wimbledon sin-

gles and doubles. He played on three |

U. S Davis Cup teams. He started
the professional tour in 1947, and
in the next few years steadily whip-
ped Bobby Riggs, Gonzales, Pancho
Segura and Frank Sedgman. He
now concentrates on promotion, but
still plays on occasion.

Segura, the minute Ecuadorian,
brings to the court a two-handed
grip on his racket that permits him
to unload some devastating shots on
his opponent. He has more than a
freakish grip to recommend him,
however. He didn’t fully develop un-
til he turned pro in 1947, even
though he had won the U. S. inter-
collegiate championship three years
in a row. In a big professional tour-
nament in Australia he beat Hart
wig, Gonzales and Sedgman in suc-
cessive matches.

Dinny Pails is the player’s player.
An astute coach and student of the
game, he has worked with Italian
German and Belgian Dav's Cup
teams as advisor-coach. He has won
or almost won nearly all of the
major titles,
lian singles championship from one
of the toughest fields ever ass2m-
blad. In his one U. S. pro tour he
beat Segura.

Seats for the local matches are
priced at Fils. 5 and Fis. 2 and can
be bought from Eddie Croes, Ron
Smith, A. J. M. Smits, or at Esso
Club Bookstore, De Wit Bookstore,
or from Lago Sport Park Board
members.
