Lago’s first four isotopes are four
one-inch long wires, sealed in stain- |
less steel capsules. Three are Cobalt- |
60, and the other, not included in the
current shipment, Cesium-137. Be-
cause of their nature, certain rigid
rules have been -established by the
AEC for care and handling, rules
which Lago will apply as well. For

Three Promoted
To New Posts

A promotion in Operations Coor-
dination and two in Receiving and
Shipping were announced last month.

John Vernon, Jr., was named as-
sistant operations coordinator, Ed-
ward H. Luckhoo was promoted to
shift foreman and Ivan Hassell moved
up to assistant shift foreman in the
R&S changes.

Mr. Vernon be-
gan his service in
June, 1951 as ju-
nior chemist in the
laboratory. He |
transferred in Oc-
tober, 1955 to
TSD-Process as
engineer A, and
later, moved to

man in October, 1956.

Spending his entire 14-year career
in Receiving and Shipping, Mr. Has-

Special Training

Present plans call for only one man

work with the isotopes. He is
anovich, whose educa-
tion and special training make him
well-suited to the job. He studied at
the Univ ty of Illinois and at Har-
vard University and has a wide back-
ground in nuclear physics. In addi-
tion he took the Tracer Lab Course,
and has been cleared by the AEC as
being fully qualified to work with
lioisotopes.

Currently it is impossible to tell
how many applications the isotopes
will have here. The work other re-
finer: have done with them only
scratches the surface. One plant ob-
served certain operational irregular-
ities in the catalytic cracking unit
but their best engineers had failed to
find the trouble. Using radioisotopes
it was learned that the amount of air
and catalyst were not uniform. Ra-
diation from an _ isotope passed
through the pipe and varying read-
ings on a Geiger counter on the other
side was the tipoff to the problem.

The iation, passing through the
dense cataly measured higher than
when it passed through the thinner
| air. Short of taking down the entire
unit, the refinery would have had
major difficulties in solving its pro-
| blem, but radioactivity solved it in a
|matter of hours.

Lago’s sealed-source isotopes, the
| first shipment, will be used to deter-
| mine liquid levels in tanks, to detect
flaws in metals, to locate exactly
stoppages in lines; they can inspect
and test while units are in operation,
and they never make a mistake.




Future Uses

In the future Lago’s radioactivity
program will include the use of
tracer isotopes. These are generally
liquid. The most frequently used is
Iodine-131. The tracer has a number
of valuable uses, but the two most
applicable to a plant like Lago is to
find leaks in underground oil or
water lines, and to ’’find’’ the lines
without having to dig for them. It
works like this: Iodine-131 is intro-
duced into the pipe. Its progress as
it passes through is measured and
tracked by a counter recording the
|radiation. To find a leak, a second
counter is set up farther along; if
the radiation intensity reading is less
in the second instrument, it means
that the leak is somewhere between
the two. It is a simple matter then
to move the two counters closer to-

Other jobs the isotopes will be call-
ed on to settle are such things as
tracing sewer lines, testing corrosion
in flare lines and gathering inform-
ation on coke formations in PCAR;
in short, almost anything.

The first three isotopes, small
though they are, will come in a big
something, in fact, well
over 500 pounds. Half of that weight
is a lead-lined ball which contains the
isotopes; the rest is packaging and
lumber. The life expectancy of the
isotopes is actually called the half-
life, because the amount of radiation
falls exactly in half after five years.
After a second five-year period, this
is halved again

The possib’ es are limitless. The
awesome sight afforded by the blast
of two atomic bombs failed to show
just what good things would flow
from the peaceable use of atomic
energy. It is only in recent years
that this mighty force could be chan-
nelled to industry. In 1953 it was es-
timated that radioisotopes were sav-
ing U. S. industry about $100 million
yearly. Savings in 1957 jumped to
approximately $300 million, and the
Atomic Energy Commission believes
that with intensive industrial devel-
opment, radioisotopes and applied
radiation will contribute literally bil-
lions of dollars to the world economy
in the next ten years.

Four -Day Visit

Of Royal Heir

Huge Success
Enjoys Brief
Refinery Tour

A charming young lady cap-
tured the hearts and imaginations
of the Aruba public four days run-
ning this past weekend. Her Royal
Highness Princess Beatrix, on her
visit first through the Nether-
lands Antilles, visited Aruba Feb.
8, 9, 10 and 11. When her early morn-
ing Feb. 12 flight left the airport
which bears her name, Princess Bea-
trix left behind adoring multitudes
to whom she had endeared herself.

As was the gathering for the Oc-
tober, 1955 visit of Her Majesty
Queen Juliana and HRH Prince
Bernhard, a cordon of scouts formed
aisles through which the princess
walked when she arrived from Cura-
cao Feb. 8. She was quickly swept up
in a series of introductions, present-
ations, salutes and _ spontaneous
cheers. From the airport she depart-
ed for Basi-Ruti, her residence dur-
ing her Aruba visit.

A gala array of costumes, exhibi-
tions and merriment greeted the





princess at her first public appear-
ance at Wilhelmina Stadium Satur-
day night. It was reported that Prin-
cess Beatrix was so delighted with
the events she inquired at the end of
the scheduled performances if there
weren’t some more she might watch.
Her interest in the Wilhelmina acti-
vities was indicative of her entire at-
titude in wanting to see as much as
she could, meet as many people as
possible and wave and smile and dis-
play her warm personality to all
those within sight.

Won Hearts

She won hearts wherever she went.
The princess exuded ingenuousness
that quickly gained the sentiments
of young and old. Public expression
of admiration came in demonstra-
tions by school children in dances
and singing ovations at the govern-
ment building and at schools in San-
ta Cruz, Paradera, Noord, Savaneta
and San Nicolas. Her path was lined
with admiring throngs as she travel-
ed through Oranjestad, visited the
hotel project, walked through the
new water plant and plucked succu-

Newton Transfers
To Esso Shipping

D. V. Newton, Lago’s marine man-
ager since December, 1955, has left
to return to Esso Shipping Company.
Before resuming his duties there,
he will study at Harvard study at
Harvard University’s advanced man-
agement program. He will attend as
Esso Shipping’s student.

Before coming
to Aruba, Mr.
Newton served as
assistant manager
of Esso Shipping’s
Traffic Depart-
ment. During the
career that began
in 1933, Mr. New-
ton worked his
way up from of-
fice boy, stopping §
along the line for
such important
assignments as membership on the

Figures Show 1957
Was Best Safety Year

After all the figures have been processed the fact shows up that 1957
was the best year in Lago’s accident experience history. The predicted
frequency rate of 0.61 was confirmed, and the company will apply to
the National Safety Council for an Award of Honor in recognition of

this achievement.

The 0.61 figure, the best ever at-
tained here, compares with 1956's
1.01. It means that for every million
manhours worked last year, there
was less than one disabling injury.
Altogether, last year saw eight dis-
abling injuries, far less than the 14
recorded in 1956. Another tangible
expression of the year’s accomplish-
ments in the field of safety was the
establishment of a new accident-free
manhour record of 6,520,829, which
was also recognized by the National
Safety Council with an Award of
Honor.

The success of safety efforts in
1957 was due to the full participation
of all employees, only one aspect of
which is the large number of safety
slips reporting hazards turned in to
the Safety Division. A significant
graph prepared by the division
shows clearly how injuries fell as

Jersey Official
Retires; Frequent
Lago Visitor

R. L. Mason, employee relations
manager for Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey), and a frequent visitor
to Lago, will retire March 1. He will
be succeeded by A. W. Brown, who
was formerly head of the insurance
and social security department.

Mr. Mason, with 39 years of ser-
vice in the Jersey organization, be-
gan with Esso Standard Oil Company
in 1919, and moved into personnel
work in 1922. He worked in the re-
fineries at Bayway, Charleston and
Layonne before becoming manager
of industrial relations. He moved to
the parent company as employee re-
lations manager in 1944.

Joining Jersey in 1946 as a spe-
cialist in the development of em-
ployee benefit plans, Mr. Brown was
with Esso Standard from 1951 to
1955, the last year of which he was
employee relations manager. He re-
turned to Jersey’s insurance and so-
cial security department and was
named manager a few months later.







more and more hazards were report-
|ed. In November of last year alone,
)1355 slips were turned in, the highest
{monthly total since the program be-
gan in 1951.

Two Weak Areas

Two weak spots are to be found
in the overall safety picture, accord-
ing to the Safety Division, in the
near-miss area, and in the entire
field of off-the-job safety. During
1957 there were 80 near-misses, most
of which were potentially serious ac-
e'dents. The final disabling injury
total for the year could easily have
been higher by 80 had "chance”’ cir-
cumstances been slightly different.

The seriousness with which off-
the-job safety is regarded by Man-
agement and employees has already
been established with the work of
the Off-the-Job Safety Study Group,
now preparing its recommendations.
That a program is needed is clear
from the figures: 247 disabling in-
juries occurred to employees off the
job last year, and nine more employ
ees were killed six in traffic acci-
dents).

Lago has reached a point in acci-
dent prevention activities where
knowing is not enough: knowing
that accidents are caused, that un-
corrected hazards spell trouble, and
that safety rvles are designed for
omployee protection. The program
now s2eks to develop a safety aware-
ness in each employee, and to answer
the "why" of safety. Lago believes
that it will be what is done about
safety, and not what is known about
it that counts.

Radioisotopes Offer Lago
New Safety Challenge

The arrival and projected use of

and the Atomic Energy Comm
feel that the f

radioactive materials in the refinery
allenge. Both the Lago men who are
sion of the U.S.,
irst step to meet the challenge is to



dispel the cloud of unfounded suspicions and halftruths that cling to the





word “radiation.” \
Important to remember is that
isotopes are like other equipment or
chemicals in one sen they have to
be used intelligently and with care
But in another sense, the serious
danger inherent in _ radioisotop:
cannot be overemphasized, and e)



treme caution must be used in their
handling.

When radioactivity work is going
on in the refinery work areas, Lago
employees will know about it. Warn-
ing signs, tags and stickers, all in a
brilliant yellow and purple design





for visibility, will give ample
noti The signs mean that un-

authorized persons should stay away
and keep away.

Lago Training Assignment

Two months of broad practice training in three Lago Departments have
recently been completed by Dirk Jan Veneman, a third year student in the
’s Hertogenbosch, Holland.

Veneman started work in the Equipment Inspection Group late in
November, spent four weeks there before moving to the Mechanical Depart-



signment in his special field of
mechanical engineering.

He is the fifth HTS student to work
at Lago. The others were Candelario
Thiel, who was here last October; H
R. Robles and E. S. Bartels, 1953,
and Cezare Terzani, 1955. The latter
four are all Aruba boys.

Mr. Veneman spent some time at
the start of his training work learn-
ing Lago's safety principles and
practices.

Yegada Di Isotopes Ta Pone Lago

Den Era Atomico; Usonan

Teniendo paso cu e avancenan tecnologico den mundo industrial, Lago
dentro di poco lo recibi un cargamento di Cobalt-60, un material radio-
activo produci door di United States Atomic Energy Commission.

E balor enorme di isotopo radioactivo manera esun cu Lago ta bai recibi
ya a keda comproba caba den industria di azeta. E ta habri posibilidad pa

haci cosnan nunca purba anterior-
mente, y por haci trabaonan di ruti-
na mas liher, mas seguro y mas ba-
rato cu otro hermentnan. Esso Re-
search & Engineering, pa menciona
un compania, a embarea ariba uso
na gran escala di isotopo; su labora-
torionan diariamente ta usa fuente-
nan di radiacion den cientos di ma-
nera ariba un escala cu ta haci e pro-
mer pasonan di Lago den direccion
di isotopo parce enano.

E promer cuatro isotoponan di
Lago ta cuatro waya un duim largo
sey4 den capsulanan di stainless
steel. Tres ta Cobalt-60, y e otro, no
inclui den e actual cargamento, ta
Cesium-137. Pa motibo di nan natu-
raleza, cierto reglanan severo a wor-
de estableci door di AEC pa cuido y
tratamento, reglanan cu lo aplica pa
Lago tambe. Por ehemplo, e capsula
ta worde cargé di trabao pa trabao
den un mochila special di linnen. Du-
rante e test e capsula ta worde teni
door di e tester na fin di un palo lar-
go, cu e radiacion saliendo den sola-
mente un direccion. Ora e isotopo-
nan no ta den e mochila nan lo wor-
de wardd den buraco special trahd
tras di laboratorio; un tubo hol ge-
sink den concreto mas of menos cua-
tro pia hundo.

Plannan actual ta pa solamente un
homber traha cu e isotoponan. El ta
George Cvejanovich, kende su edu-
cacion y entrenamento special ta ha-
cie’le bon prepara pa e trabao. El a
studia na Universidad di Illinois y
na Universidad di Harvard y tin un
fondo amplio di physica nuclear.
Ademas, el a tuma e Tercer Lab
Course, y el a worde declara como
cualifica pa traha cu radioisotopo.

Actualmente ta imposible pa bisa
con hopi aplicacionnan e isotoponan
lo tin aki. E trabao cu otro refineria-
nan a haci cu nan solamente ta rasca
superficie. Un planta a observa cier-
to irregularidadnan operacional den
catalytic cracking unit pero nan me-
hor ingenieronan no por a haya e
trobbel. Usando radioisotopo a worde
descubri cu e cantidad di aire y ca-
talyst no tabata uniforme. Radiacion
di un isotopo tabata pasa door di un
tubo y registracionnan variable ari-
ba un contador Geiger na otro ban-
da tabata un indicacion di e proble-
ma. E radiacion, pasando door di e
catalyst denso, tabata registra mas
halto cu ora e tabata pasa door di e
aire mas fini. E refineria lo tabatin
un problema grandi pa haya solucio-
na e problema aki, pero radioactivi-
dad a hacie’le den cuenta di algun
ora.

E isotoponan seya di Lago, e pro-
mer cargamento, lo worde usd pa

determina nivel di liquido den tanki,
pa determina plekkinan zwak den



metal, pa localiza exactamente unda
un linja ta blokeé; nan por inspecta

Some Ideas on Medical Department

Declared Non-Creditable for CY]

An area which is more properly the function of professional medicine
has been ruled as non-creditable for Coin Your Idea suggestions by the

Executive Committee.
In a ruling announced this week, three types of medical suggestions



will be screened out by the CYI Committee. These are:

1) Suggestions pertaining to pro-
fessional treatment methods invol-
ving the professional handling of the
diseases and ailments of persons un-
der the care of the Lago Medical De-
partment.

2) Suggestions covering new drugs,
replacement drugs and allegations of
any drug’s superiority to any com-
parable drug.

3) Suggestions involving purely or-
ganizational matters of the Medical
Department or dealing with variety
of specialists or professional services
to be offered by the Medical Depart-
ment. Decisions on these matters are
exclusively with the province of the
Medical Director.

The reason for adding this type of
suggestion to the non-creditable list
is that in such a highly specialized
field as modern medicine, the layman
is unable to keep up with new devel-
opments. It is felt unlikely that a
suggestion through the CYI plan can
bring matters in this field to the at-
tention of the Medical Department
that the Department is not already
aware of.

Special Training

Present plans call for only one man

work with the isotopes. He is
anovich, whose educa-
tion and special training make him
well-suited to the job. He studied at
the Univ ty of Illinois and at Har-
vard University and has a wide back-
ground in nuclear physics. In addi-
tion he took the Tracer Lab Course,
and has been cleared by the AEC as
being fully qualified to work with
lioisotopes.

Currently it is impossible to tell
how many applications the isotopes
will have here. The work other re-
finer: have done with them only
scratches the surface. One plant ob-
served certain operational irregular-
ities in the catalytic cracking unit
but their best engineers had failed to
find the trouble. Using radioisotopes
it was learned that the amount of air
and catalyst were not uniform. Ra-
diation from an _ isotope passed
through the pipe and varying read-
ings on a Geiger counter on the other
side was the tipoff to the problem.

The iation, passing through the
dense cataly measured higher than
when it passed through the thinner
| air. Short of taking down the entire
unit, the refinery would have had
major difficulties in solving its pro-
| blem, but radioactivity solved it in a
|matter of hours.

Lago’s sealed-source isotopes, the
| first shipment, will be used to deter-
| mine liquid levels in tanks, to detect
flaws in metals, to locate exactly
stoppages in lines; they can inspect
and test while units are in operation,
and they never make a mistake.




Future Uses

In the future Lago’s radioactivity
program will include the use of
tracer isotopes. These are generally
liquid. The most frequently used is
Iodine-131. The tracer has a number
of valuable uses, but the two most
applicable to a plant like Lago is to
find leaks in underground oil or
water lines, and to ’’find’’ the lines
without having to dig for them. It
works like this: Iodine-131 is intro-
duced into the pipe. Its progress as
it passes through is measured and
tracked by a counter recording the
|radiation. To find a leak, a second
counter is set up farther along; if
the radiation intensity reading is less
in the second instrument, it means
that the leak is somewhere between
the two. It is a simple matter then
to move the two counters closer to-

Other jobs the isotopes will be call-
ed on to settle are such things as
tracing sewer lines, testing corrosion
in flare lines and gathering inform-
ation on coke formations in PCAR;
in short, almost anything.

The first three isotopes, small
though they are, will come in a big
something, in fact, well
over 500 pounds. Half of that weight
is a lead-lined ball which contains the
isotopes; the rest is packaging and
lumber. The life expectancy of the
isotopes is actually called the half-
life, because the amount of radiation
falls exactly in half after five years.
After a second five-year period, this
is halved again

The possib’ es are limitless. The
awesome sight afforded by the blast
of two atomic bombs failed to show
just what good things would flow
from the peaceable use of atomic
energy. It is only in recent years
that this mighty force could be chan-
nelled to industry. In 1953 it was es-
timated that radioisotopes were sav-
ing U. S. industry about $100 million
yearly. Savings in 1957 jumped to
approximately $300 million, and the
Atomic Energy Commission believes
that with intensive industrial devel-
opment, radioisotopes and applied
radiation will contribute literally bil-
lions of dollars to the world economy
in the next ten years.

Four -Day Visit

Of Royal Heir

Huge Success
Enjoys Brief
Refinery Tour

A charming young lady cap-
tured the hearts and imaginations
of the Aruba public four days run-
ning this past weekend. Her Royal
Highness Princess Beatrix, on her
visit first through the Nether-
lands Antilles, visited Aruba Feb.
8, 9, 10 and 11. When her early morn-
ing Feb. 12 flight left the airport
which bears her name, Princess Bea-
trix left behind adoring multitudes
to whom she had endeared herself.

As was the gathering for the Oc-
tober, 1955 visit of Her Majesty
Queen Juliana and HRH Prince
Bernhard, a cordon of scouts formed
aisles through which the princess
walked when she arrived from Cura-
cao Feb. 8. She was quickly swept up
in a series of introductions, present-
ations, salutes and _ spontaneous
cheers. From the airport she depart-
ed for Basi-Ruti, her residence dur-
ing her Aruba visit.

A gala array of costumes, exhibi-
tions and merriment greeted the





princess at her first public appear-
ance at Wilhelmina Stadium Satur-
day night. It was reported that Prin-
cess Beatrix was so delighted with
the events she inquired at the end of
the scheduled performances if there
weren’t some more she might watch.
Her interest in the Wilhelmina acti-
vities was indicative of her entire at-
titude in wanting to see as much as
she could, meet as many people as
possible and wave and smile and dis-
play her warm personality to all
those within sight.

Won Hearts

She won hearts wherever she went.
The princess exuded ingenuousness
that quickly gained the sentiments
of young and old. Public expression
of admiration came in demonstra-
tions by school children in dances
and singing ovations at the govern-
ment building and at schools in San-
ta Cruz, Paradera, Noord, Savaneta
and San Nicolas. Her path was lined
with admiring throngs as she travel-
ed through Oranjestad, visited the
hotel project, walked through the
new water plant and plucked succu-

Before resuming his duties there,
he will study at Harvard study at
Harvard University’s advanced man-
agement program. He will attend as
Esso Shipping’s student.

Before coming
to Aruba, Mr.

Figures Show 1957
Was Best Safety Year

After all the figures have been processed the fact shows up that 1957
was the best year in Lago’s accident experience history. The predicted
frequency rate of 0.61 was confirmed, and the company will apply to
the National Safety Council for an Award of Honor in recognition of

this achievement.

The 0.61 figure, the best ever at-
tained here, compares with 1956's
1.01. It means that for every million
manhours worked last year, there
was less than one disabling injury.
Altogether, last year saw eight dis-
abling injuries, far less than the 14
recorded in 1956. Another tangible
expression of the year’s accomplish-
ments in the field of safety was the
establishment of a new accident-free
manhour record of 6,520,829, which
was also recognized by the National
Safety Council with an Award of
Honor.

The success of safety efforts in
1957 was due to the full participation
of all employees, only one aspect of
which is the large number of safety
slips reporting hazards turned in to
the Safety Division. A significant
graph prepared by the division
shows clearly how injuries fell as

Jersey Official
Retires; Frequent
Lago Visitor

R. L. Mason, employee relations
manager for Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey), and a frequent visitor
to Lago, will retire March 1. He will
be succeeded by A. W. Brown, who
was formerly head of the insurance
and social security department.

Mr. Mason, with 39 years of ser-
vice in the Jersey organization, be-
gan with Esso Standard Oil Company
in 1919, and moved into personnel
work in 1922. He worked in the re-
fineries at Bayway, Charleston and
Layonne before becoming manager
of industrial relations. He moved to
the parent company as employee re-
lations manager in 1944.

Joining Jersey in 1946 as a spe-
cialist in the development of em-
ployee benefit plans, Mr. Brown was
with Esso Standard from 1951 to
1955, the last year of which he was
employee relations manager. He re-
turned to Jersey’s insurance and so-
cial security department and was
named manager a few months later.







more and more hazards were report-
|ed. In November of last year alone,
)1355 slips were turned in, the highest
{monthly total since the program be-
gan in 1951.

Two Weak Areas

Two weak spots are to be found
in the overall safety picture, accord-
ing to the Safety Division, in the
near-miss area, and in the entire
field of off-the-job safety. During
1957 there were 80 near-misses, most
of which were potentially serious ac-
e'dents. The final disabling injury
total for the year could easily have
been higher by 80 had "chance”’ cir-
cumstances been slightly different.

The seriousness with which off-
the-job safety is regarded by Man-
agement and employees has already
been established with the work of
the Off-the-Job Safety Study Group,
now preparing its recommendations.
That a program is needed is clear
from the figures: 247 disabling in-
juries occurred to employees off the
job last year, and nine more employ
ees were killed six in traffic acci-
dents).

Lago has reached a point in acci-
dent prevention activities where
knowing is not enough: knowing
that accidents are caused, that un-
corrected hazards spell trouble, and
that safety rvles are designed for
omployee protection. The program
now s2eks to develop a safety aware-
ness in each employee, and to answer
the "why" of safety. Lago believes
that it will be what is done about
safety, and not what is known about
it that counts.

Radioisotopes Offer Lago
New Safety Challenge

The arrival and projected use of

srned with the isotop



conc
which produced them,

and the Atomic Energy Comm
feel that the f

radioactive materials in the refinery
allenge. Both the Lago men who are
sion of the U.S.,
irst step to meet the challenge is to



dispel the cloud of unfounded suspicions and halftruths that cling to the





word “radiation.” \
Important to remember is that
isotopes are like other equipment or
chemicals in one sen they have to
be used intelligently and with care
But in another sense, the serious
danger inherent in _ radioisotop:
cannot be overemphasized, and e)



treme caution must be used in their
handling.

When radioactivity work is going
on in the refinery work areas, Lago
employees will know about it. Warn-
ing signs, tags and stickers, all in a
brilliant yellow and purple design





for visibility, will give ample
noti The signs mean that un-

authorized persons should stay away
and keep away.

0.61 cual a worde pronostica a keda
confirma, y compania lo aplica na
National Safety Council pa un Pre-
mio di Honor en reconocimento di e
acomplecimento aki.

E cifra di 0.61, e mehor cu a yega
di worde ateni aki, ta compara cu e
1.01 di 1956. E ta nifica cu pa cada
milion ora cu a worde trah4 anja
pasa tabatin menos cu un desgracia
cu perdida di tempo. Na tur, anja



dida di tempo, mucho menos cu e 14
cu a worde registra na 1956. Un otro
expresion palpable di e acompleci-
mentonan di e anja den terreno di
seguridad tabata establecemento di
un record nobo di 6,520,829 ora, cual
tambe a worde reconoci door di Na-
tional Safety Council cu un Premio
di Honor.

E exito di esfuerzonan di seguri-

Dutch Student Completes
Lago Training Assignment

Two months of broad practice training in three Lago Departments have
recently been completed by Dirk Jan Veneman, a third year student in the
’s Hertogenbosch, Holland.

Veneman started work in the Equipment Inspection Group late in
November, spent four weeks there before moving to the Mechanical Depart-



signment in his special field of
mechanical engineering.

He is the fifth HTS student to work
at Lago. The others were Candelario
Thiel, who was here last October; H
R. Robles and E. S. Bartels, 1953,
and Cezare Terzani, 1955. The latter
four are all Aruba boys.

Mr. Veneman spent some time at
the start of his training work learn-
ing Lago's safety principles and
practices.

Yegada Di Isotopes Ta Pone Lago

Den Era Atomico; Usonan

Teniendo paso cu e avancenan tecnologico den mundo industrial, Lago
dentro di poco lo recibi un cargamento di Cobalt-60, un material radio-
activo produci door di United States Atomic Energy Commission.

E balor enorme di isotopo radioactivo manera esun cu Lago ta bai recibi
ya a keda comproba caba den industria di azeta. E ta habri posibilidad pa

haci cosnan nunca purba anterior-
mente, y por haci trabaonan di ruti-
na mas liher, mas seguro y mas ba-
rato cu otro hermentnan. Esso Re-
search & Engineering, pa menciona
un compania, a embarea ariba uso
na gran escala di isotopo; su labora-
torionan diariamente ta usa fuente-
nan di radiacion den cientos di ma-
nera ariba un escala cu ta haci e pro-
mer pasonan di Lago den direccion
di isotopo parce enano.

E promer cuatro isotoponan di
Lago ta cuatro waya un duim largo
sey4 den capsulanan di stainless
steel. Tres ta Cobalt-60, y e otro, no
inclui den e actual cargamento, ta
Cesium-137. Pa motibo di nan natu-
raleza, cierto reglanan severo a wor-
de estableci door di AEC pa cuido y
tratamento, reglanan cu lo aplica pa
Lago tambe. Por ehemplo, e capsula
ta worde cargé di trabao pa trabao
den un mochila special di linnen. Du-
rante e test e capsula ta worde teni
door di e tester na fin di un palo lar-
go, cu e radiacion saliendo den sola-
mente un direccion. Ora e isotopo-
nan no ta den e mochila nan lo wor-
de wardd den buraco special trahd
tras di laboratorio; un tubo hol ge-
sink den concreto mas of menos cua-
tro pia hundo.

Plannan actual ta pa solamente un
homber traha cu e isotoponan. El ta
George Cvejanovich, kende su edu-
cacion y entrenamento special ta ha-
cie’le bon prepara pa e trabao. El a
studia na Universidad di Illinois y
na Universidad di Harvard y tin un
fondo amplio di physica nuclear.
Ademas, el a tuma e Tercer Lab
Course, y el a worde declara como
cualifica pa traha cu radioisotopo.

Actualmente ta imposible pa bisa
con hopi aplicacionnan e isotoponan
lo tin aki. E trabao cu otro refineria-
nan a haci cu nan solamente ta rasca
superficie. Un planta a observa cier-
to irregularidadnan operacional den
catalytic cracking unit pero nan me-
hor ingenieronan no por a haya e
trobbel. Usando radioisotopo a worde
descubri cu e cantidad di aire y ca-
talyst no tabata uniforme. Radiacion
di un isotopo tabata pasa door di un
tubo y registracionnan variable ari-
ba un contador Geiger na otro ban-
da tabata un indicacion di e proble-
ma. E radiacion, pasando door di e
catalyst denso, tabata registra mas
halto cu ora e tabata pasa door di e
aire mas fini. E refineria lo tabatin
un problema grandi pa haya solucio-
na e problema aki, pero radioactivi-
dad a hacie’le den cuenta di algun
ora.

E isotoponan seya di Lago, e pro-
mer cargamento, lo worde usd pa

determina nivel di liquido den tanki,
pa determina plekkinan zwak den



metal, pa localiza exactamente unda
un linja ta blokeé; nan por inspecta
y test mientras plantanan ta na ope-
racion, y nunca nan ta haci error.
Den futuro e programa di radio-
actividad di Lago lo inclui e uso di
"tracer isotopes.’ Esakinan general-
mente ta liquido, e mas frecuente usa
ta Iodine-131. E tercer tin algun uso-
nan valioso, pero e dosnan mas apli-
cable ariba un planta manera Lago
ta pa haya leknan den linjanan di
awa of azeta bao terra, y pa "haya"
e linjanan sin tin mester di coba nan.
E ta traha asina: Iodine-131 ta wor-
de introduci den e tubo. Su progreso
segun e ta pasa door ta worde midi
y sigui door di un contador regis-
trando e radiacion. Pa haya un lek,
un segunda contador ta worde in-
stal4 mas leuw; si e intensidad di ra-
diacion ta menos den e segunda in-
strumento, e ta nifica cu e lek ta al-
gun camina entre e dosnan. Anto ta
un asunto facil pa move e dos conta-
dornan mas pega di otro te ora lugar
exacto di e lek worde determina.
Otro trabaonan cu e isotoponan lo
worde requeri pa aregla ta tal cos-



Inlimita

wer, test corosion den linjanan di
flare y pa colecta informacion tocan-
te formacion di casca na PCAR.

E promer tres isotopo, pa chikito
cu nan ta, lo bini den un pakki gran-
di; algo, di mas cu 500 liber. Mitar di
e peso aki ta un bola furé cu chumbo
cu ta contene e isotoponan; e resto
ta paketacion y palo. E expectacion
di bida di e isotoponan en efecto ya-
ma mitar-bida, pasobra e cantidad
di radiacion ta parti exactamente
den dos despues di cinco anja. Des-
pues di un segunda perioda di cinco
anja, e ta bolbe parti na mitar.

E posibilidadnan ta sin limite. E
vista hororoso ofreci door di explo-
sion di e bomba atomico a faya di
demonstra e bon cosnan cu ta posible
door di uso di energia atomico pa ob-
hetonan pacifico. Ta solamente den
anjanan reciente cu e forza poderoso
aki por a worde poni na uso di in-
dustria. Na 1953 a worde calcula cu
radioisotopo tabata spaar $100 milion
pa anja pa industria di Estados Uni-
dos. Na 1957 e spaarmento aki taba-
ta como $300 milion, y Atomic Ener-
gy Commission ta kere cu den caso
di desaroyo industrial intensivo, ra-
dioisotopo y radiacion aplicd4 lo con-
tribui literalmente biliones di dol-
lares na economia mundial den e pro-
ximo diez anja.

Some Ideas on Medical Department

Declared Non-Creditable for CY]

An area which is more properly the function of professional medicine
has been ruled as non-creditable for Coin Your Idea suggestions by the

Executive Committee.
In a ruling announced this week, three types of medical suggestions



will be screened out by the CYI Committee. These are:

1) Suggestions pertaining to pro-
fessional treatment methods invol-
ving the professional handling of the
diseases and ailments of persons un-
der the care of the Lago Medical De-
partment.

2) Suggestions covering new drugs,
replacement drugs and allegations of
any drug’s superiority to any com-
parable drug.

3) Suggestions involving purely or-
ganizational matters of the Medical
Department or dealing with variety
of specialists or professional services
to be offered by the Medical Depart-
ment. Decisions on these matters are
exclusively with the province of the
Medical Director.

The reason for adding this type of
suggestion to the non-creditable list
is that in such a highly specialized
field as modern medicine, the layman
is unable to keep up with new devel-
opments. It is felt unlikely that a
suggestion through the CYI plan can
bring matters in this field to the at-
tention of the Medical Department
that the Department is not already
aware of.
