Of New Year
Born at 3:25 PM

Heralding in the New Year at ||
Lago Hospital was the birth on
New Year’s Day of Juan Benito
Ridderstaad whose father, Jacobo,
is employed in Mechanical-Pipe.
The first baby of 1959 arrived
on the scene at 3:25 in the after-
noon. He weighed all of nine
pounds at birth. Born in the last
hours of 1958 was Benvenuto E.
Palm, the son of Johannes J. B.
Palm of Mechanical-Electrical.
Weighing in at just six pounds,
11 ounces, little Benvenuto was
nearly six hours old when the
clock struck the old year out.

1959’s First 30-Year
Awards Go to Six
Men and Company

Six men and a company turned 30-industrial years old this month.
First men to be honored this year for attaining 30 years of Lago
service were Armand C. Hodge, Mechanical-Garage; Arthur E. Krott-
nauer Jr., Mechanical-Instrument; Julius W. Van Varsseveld, Pro-
cess-Cracking; Jackson W. Farrell, Process-Utilities; Joseph Kock,

General Services-Crafts, and John!
V. Friel, manager of the Industriil
Relations Department. The company
will be officially 30 years old Jan. 26.

Honored at a special management
staff meeting Jan. 7, the Lago vete-
rans were presented their 30-year
certificates and emblems by General
Manager W. A. Murray who said, "It
is a very pleasant function of the
management staff to honor you today

|for your long service at Lago. It is

a great satisfaction to see you men
achieve this milestone in your ca-
reers.”

F. E. Griffin Present

Also present for the ceremonies
was Executive Vice-President F. E.
Griffin who congratulated the 30-
year recipients and added, "Your
faces are familiar ones to me. It is
significant that you men are cele-
brating your 30th anniversary with
the company on the eve of its of-
ficial 30th birthday.”

To both of his Mechanical De-
partment men, Superintendent G. L.
MacNutt recalled that there wasn’t
much oil being refined at Lago when
they started here. Of Mr. Hodge he
said that he has been a dependable
employee whose willingness to work
any shift or day has been favorable
to the company. Mr. MacNutt also
added that Mr. Hodge has always
been active in church affairs. Direct-
ing his attention to Mr. Krottnauer.
Mr. MacNutt informed the group that
the general foreman had _ helped
build the powerhouse during the
early years. "Then he made the in-
strument craft a career with us,”
Mr. McNutt added. "That is one of
the crafts that has changed more
in 30 years than any other. As head
of that craft you have helped deve-
lop it into an extremely efficient

unit. Art was bound to succeed be-
cause his father was on the job and

saw that he didn’t wander off the
beaten path,” Mr. MacNutt said.

In congratulating Mr. Van Vars-
seveld and Mr. Farrell, Process Su-
perintendent M. Fisk said that both
have shown much adaptability to
assignments over the years. He
added that every operator likes to
have dependable men like Mr. Van
Varsseveld on his crew. Mr. Fisk
reported that it is possible for Mr.
Farrell to receive his 40-year em-
blem because of his age. "He has
been in Utilities for 26 years and
has shown great adaptability and
latent ability on the job, "Mr. Fisk
added.

"To every housewife in Seroe Co-
lorado, Joseph Kock is known as
Chappy,”’ General Services Superin-
tendent N. M. Shirley quipped when
he congratulated the crafts foreman.
Mr. Shirley continued with the re-
mark that Chappy had supervised
more paint jobs there than any
other man. He said he was a steady,
dependable, loyal worker with four
sons at Lago following in his foot-
steps. Never absent, Mr. Kock has
been in General Services for 23 of
his 30 years.

Outlined Friel’s Career

The 30-year career of Industrial
Relations Manager J. V. Friel was
outlined by Mr. Murray. "I wonder
if Jack acquired his taste for cigars
when he was secretary to Walter C.
Teagle, former president of the Jer-
sey Company, back in 19337" Mr.
Murray asked. He said that Mr.
Friel's presentations to management
staff have always been clear and
concise and most helpful because of
their clarity. Mr. Friel replied that
he considered himself most fortunate
in choosing Lago and Aruba as a

of Parana and was graduated from
that institution in 1953. After one
year’s employment in plastics
company, he joined Petrobras as a
chemical engineer. Mr. Patrocinio
received his degree in industrial
chemistry in 1951 from the Univers-
ity of Brazil. He joined Petrobras as
a chemical engineer in 1955 after
four years as a_ police department
toxicologist. Both men reside in San-
tos, Brazil, which is near the Cuba-
tao refinery where they are em-
ployed.

According to Mr. Rona, his com-
pany obtains a_ training program
agreement with whomever it pur-
chases its crude. Esso Export, which
is currently selling crude oil to
Petrobras, scheduled the train-
ing assignments through the Esso
Research and Engineering Company.
Mr. Rona explained that Petrobras is
51 per cent owned by the govern-
ment and 49 per cent by private in-
terests. "As the petroleum industry
is nationalized in my country, no
foreign interests are allowed,” he
added. He went on to say that al-
though there are privately owned re-
fineries in Brazil, all new refineries
will be 100 per cent state owned.
The country is building up an orga-
nization of trained technicians to
man these refineries, he continued.
Petrobras’ Cubatao refinery is the
largest in Brazil and has a through-
put of 90,000 barrels daily. Products
refined include motor gasolene, ke-
rosene, diesel fuel, fuel oil and ethy-
lene recovery.

Though the two men were away
from home during the holidays they
said any homesickness was alleviat-
ed somewhat by the hospitalitv
shown to them at the homes of E.
R. Carroll, process foreman, and J.
T. H. De Lange, Industrial Relations
Department. Both Mr. Rona and Mr.
Patrocinio are enthusiastic about

"Well, I guess you could say it all started
on borrowed cash.”

"You're joking.”

"No, that’s the way I obtained money to
my first camera, a Speed Graphic.” So




buy

said Norman W. Singh, Lago's chief photo-
grapher, all the while suppressing an enlar-
ging grin into a thin-lipped smile at the



interviewer's disbelief or in a glowing mo-
ment of self-satisfaction as his mind flashed
back over a personal undertaking well done.
It was found to be the latter as a story un-
folded that bared enviable determination in
pursuit of a goal.

As much a part of Norman as his endless
and quite tuneless whistle is the statement:
"It could have been better.”’ This critical self-
analysis of his work seems to be made by Nor-
man as a mode of self-discipline. His is an
insatiable desire to improve, to do a little
better the next time. It has led him not only
into a successful career, but has also brought
him many honors the last of which was a
very distinctive first place in a world-wide
photography contest.

Sponsored by the Esso Camera Club U.K.
in London, his photograph of a Lago sand-
blaster was awarded first prize in the Inter-
national Photographic Competition. His dra-
matic portrayal of the Mechanical Depart-
ment employee at work, which first appear-
ed in the 1955 safety annual, drew high praise
and such commendation as ’’'The judge, who
is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Socie-
ty and is known to be a very capable photo-
grapher, could not find any faults with the
print and expressed the view that he would
have liked to have taken the photograph him-
self.”

Award Taken In stride

But because of Norman’s "it could be bet-
ter” philosophy of work life, the glory of an
international first never diminished the desire
to move on. In spite of the laurels, there was
no time for rest. Typically Norman, the award
was taken in stride — one of the strides he
directed toward Santa Barbara, California,
and a four-month study stint at Brooks In-
stitute of Photography. The courses cover
motion picture techniques and portrait work,
and, making the most of the skilled instruc-
tion available, Norman plans to do some re-
view work in night classes if they can be ar-
ranged. Using furlough time, savings and a
huge pack of personal drive, the Santa Bar-
bara trip was initially made possible through
a Lago Scholarship Foundation grant. One of
two aspiring students to receive grants this
month, Norman has now added the Founda-
tion to his list of supporters in his endless and
seemingly tireless endeavor to become an out-
standing photographer.

His first was Charlie Overstreet, a former
Lago employee and fellow worker in Process
Control. Mr. Overstreet introduced Norman
to the camera and photography. It was all
new to this Process Control clerk. In his na-
tive British Guiana, which he had only left
a few years before to come to Aruba and La-
go for employ, he did not have a camera, had
no desire to own one and had only had his
picture taken once. But evidently the like was
latent because once he started assisting Mr.
Overstreet, he was overwhelmed with a craze
to develop the knowledge, skills and imagina-
tion of this art in himself,

Assists Mr. Overstreet.

He continued to assist Mr. Overstreet and
as he worked side-by-side with the Lago ex-
patriate he learned. Another who joined their
ventures in Mr. Overstreet's private darkroom
was Igor Broz, son of Dr. R. K. Broz. He, too,
taught Norman. The two — Mr. Overstreet
and Mr. Broz — obtained the utmost in pro-
gressive cultivation. The seed was planted and
nurtured into a budding photographer in the

form of a short, stocky young man of Asiatic
Indian heritage. But photography, by the na-
ture of the finely ground optics utilized in cap-
turing images, commands more than desire
and skill. Expensive, precise equipment is
needed by the professional photographer. Nor-
man had no real capital. He had only work-
ed for Lago a few years coming here at the
age of 20 as something of an adventurer, but
with little or no financial backing..

Faith Proved Correct

"There was only one person to turn to and
that was Mr. Overstreet. It was natural. He
taught me all I knew and I was sure he would
help me start on my own. My faith in Mr.
Overstreet proved correct. I guess I will al-
ways be indebted to him. He lent me money
and equipment, and he freely gave of all his
photography knowledge.”

With money borrowed from Mr. Overstreet,
Norman brought the Speed Graphic that was
his first camera. Years of hard, back-break-
ing night and weekend work followed to re-
move the debt. Norman lived in the bachelor
quarters of Lago Heights in those days. He
transferred his cubicle of ample living space
into a cramped dual-purpose dakroom and bed-
room. On weekends during daylight hours a
blanket from Norman’s bed covered the win-
dow shutting out the sun’s bright rays from
sensitive photographic paper. The door was
closed tight and while Norman sweltered he
printed; he developed; he enlarged; he ferro-
typed; he worked and worked some more. It
was laborious, by no means always enjoyable,
but with each hour’s effort Norman earned
guilders enough to repay Mr. Overstreet’s
loan.

About the time Norman had established a
strong working relationship with his camera,
two important events transpired. Lago de-
cided to record aspects of its industrial life
photographically, and Steve Sery, knowing
of Norman’s recently acquired photogra-
phic skills, asked if he would like to be
the man behind Lago’s first camera. It was
a Speed Graphic and, at the time, Norman
was in the Estimating Group. And as a mem-
ber of this group he took off on his and La-
go’s first industrial photographic assignments:
product samples, construction of Nos. 1 and
2 Finger Piers and tank construction.

"I liked the work and I liked the idea of be-
ing Lago’s photographer. Then, or course, I
was the only one. But I decided right away
that if I were to make this my career at Lago,
I had better learn all I could about camera and
darkroom techniques.”

Study Leave-Of-Absence

So Norman spent sorne more weekends and
nights in his close, hot-box of a private dark-
room and bedroom grinding out prints at a
guilder a copy. When he had saved what he
estimated would get him to New York, keep
him there for four and one-half months of
study and return him, he approached J. M.
Whiteley for a leave-of-absence. The request
granted, he departed for New York in April,
1949 to study commercial and portrait pho-
tography. Shortly after his return from the
United States he was transferred to the Aruba
Esso News. His photographic contributions
have livened the pages of the paper ever since
and have aided immeasurably the News’
growth and appeal, His graphic portrayals of
Lago and its employees have been note-
worthy in the development of Lago publica-
tions. Keenly aware of engineering needs, his
industrial photographs have given tremen-
dous importance to that phase of Lago photo-
graphy.

Throughout the refinery Norman is known.
He is as well known throughout the island as
evidenced by his ability to gain entrance in-
to any sports or social function without ticket
or form of pass. Norman's pass is Norman,

= A Successful Undertaking
on Borrowed Cash

This is the sandblaster pic-
ture that won first place.
Esaki ta e portret di sand-
blaster cu a gana prome pre-

mio.

"Wel, mi ta kere cu por bien bisa cu tur esa-
ki a cuminza cu un préstamo.”

"Bo ta chanza.”

"No, asina mi a haya placa pa cumpra mi
promer camera, un Speed Graphic.” Asina
Norman W. Singh, chief photographer di La-
go, a bisa, mientras tanto suprimiendo un
sonrisa pasobra e entrevistador no kier a ke-
re y mientras su memoria lo mester tabata
traha cu satisfaccion propio ariba un empre-
sa cu a resulta bon. A resulta cu tabata e ul-
timo segun tabata desaroya un storia cu ta
munstra determinacion enviable den pursi-
guimento di un obheto.

Mes tanto un parti di Norman como su
fluitmento sin fin y sin pieza ta su expresion:
"Por tabata mehor.” E analyse critico aki di
su mes trabao aparentemente a worde inven-
ta door di Norman como modo di disciplina
propio. El tin un deseo insaciable pa mehora,
pa haci un tiki mehor otro biaha. No sola-
mente esaki a hibe’le ariba un carera exitoso,
pero tambe a trece hopi honor pe, e ultimo
siendo e promer lugar den un concurso inter-
nacional di fotografia.

Ausppicia door di Esso Camera Club U.K. na
London, su retrato di un sandblaster na Lago
a worde duna promer premio den Internatio-
nal Photographic Competition. Su _ retrato
dramatico di e empleado di Mechanical De-
partment na trabao, cual a aparece pa di pro-
mer vez den e anual di seguridad pa 1955, a
merece gran elogio y comentario manera "E
juez kende su mes ta un Fellow di e Royal
Photographic Society y kende ta conoci como
un fotografo masha competente, no por a ha-
ya ningun falta cu e print y a expresa cu el
mes lo a gusta di saca un portret asina.”

"Por Tabata Mehor”

Pero pa motibo di Norman su filosofia cu
"por tabata mehor,” e gloria di e promer lu-
gar den un concurso internacional no a men-
gua su deseo pa bai adilanti. No obstante e
prestacion no tabatin tempo pa sosega. Ty-
picamente Norman, el a tuma e promio como
principio di un otro ventura — y esaki ta hi-
be’le Santa Barbara, California, unda el ta
bai sigui un curso di cuatro luna na Brooks
bri metodonan di pelicula mobil y obranan
di portret, y, sacando maximo ventaja di bon
Institute of Photography. E cursonan ta cu-
instruccion cu ta disponible, Norman tin in-
tencion di haci algun obra di revista den clase
di anochi si ta posible. Usando tempo di va-
cacion, placa gespaar y un gran cantidad di
energia personal, e viaja pa Santa Barbara
a worde haci posible inicialmente door di un
subsidio di Lago Scholarship Foundation. Un
di e dos studiantenan cu a recibi subsidio e
luna aki, Norman awor a agrega e Founda-
tion na lista di su ayudantenan den su lucha
sin fin y indescansable pa bira un fotografo
sobresaliente.

Su promer tabata Charlie Overstreet, un
anterior empleado di Lago y companjero di
trabao den Process Control. Sr. Overstreet a
introduci Norman na camera y sacamento di
portret. Tabata algo henteramente nobo pa e
klerk aki di Process Control. Na British Guia-
na, unda el e nace, y for di unda el a bini Aru-
ba y Lago algun anja promer pa traha, el no
tabatin un camera, el no tabatin deseo pa tin
un tampoco, y solamente un biaha el a yega
di laga saca su portret. Pero evidentemente
e gusto tabata latente pasobra una vez el a
cuminza asisti Sr. Overstreet, el a worde apo-
deraé pa un deseo pa desaroya su saber, abili-
dad y imaginacion di e arte aki den su mes.
El a sigui asisti Sr. Overstreet y segun el ta-
bata traha hunto cu ne el tabata sinja. Un
otro cu a reuni hunto cu nan den e camera ob-



scuro di Sr. Overstreet tabata Igor Broz, yiu
di Dr. R. K. Broz, El tambe a sinja Norman.
Nan dos — Sr. Overstreet y Sr. Broz — a ob-
tene e mayor resultado di cultivacion progre-
sivo E semilla a worde planta y nurtura den
forma di un fotografo den figura di un hom-
ber crotico y robusto di origen Asiatico Indio.
Pero fotografia, pa motibo di e lensnan pre-
ciso cu tin mester pa captura imagen, ta re-
quiri mas cu deseo y saber. E fotografo pro-
fesional mester di aparatonan preciso y cos-
toso. Norman no tabatin capital. Apenas al-
gun anja el tabata traha pa Lago desde cu el
a bini aki na edad di 20 anja como un aven-
turero, pero cu casi nada recurso financiero.

”’Tabatin solamente un persona cerca kende
acudi y esey tabata Sr. Overstreet. Tabata
natural. El a sinja mi tur loke mi tabata sabi
y mi tabata segur cu ello ayuda mi cuminza
ariba mi mes. Mi fe den Sr. Overstreet a re
sulta correcto. Mi ta kere cu semper lo mi ke-
da agradecido na dje.. El a presta mi placa y
aparato y el a duna gratis tur saber.”

Cu placa presta di Sr. Overstreet Norman
a cumpra e Speed Graphiic cu tabata su pro-
mer camera. Anjanan di trabao duro te laat
di anochi y ariba fin di siman a sigui pa pa-
ga e debe. E tempo Norman tabata biba den
bachelor quarters na Lago Heights. El a pasa
cosnan den un cuarto cu el por a usa na mes
tempo como kamber di drumi y camera ob-
scura. Durante finnan di siman un laken di
Norman su cama tabata cubri e bentana pa
tapa solo for di e papel sensitivo, E porta ta-
bata cerra duro y mientras Norman tabata
soda di calor el tabata print, desaroya, haci
grandi y ferrotyped; despues el ta traha mas y
mas. Tabata trabao duro, no semper agrada-
ble, pero cu cada ora di esfuerzo Norman ta-
bata gana bastante placa pa paga e préstamo
di Sr. Overstreet.

Mas o menos e tempo cu Norman a estable-
ce un fuerte cooperacion cu su camera, dos
evento importante a socede. Lago a decidi pa
registra aspectonan di su bida industrial fo-
tograficamente, y Steve Sery, sabiendo
di Norman su _ saber di fotografia cu
el a adquiri recientemente, a puntre'le si el
tabata kier ser e homber tras di promer ca-
mera di Lago. Tabata un Speed Graphic y, e
tempo, Norman tabata den Estimating Group.
Y como miembro di e grupo aki el a laga sali
ariba su promer encargonan fotografico pa
Lago: muestranan di producto, construccion
di pier Nos. 1 y 2 y construccion di tanki.

Fotografo Di Lago

"Mi tabata gusta e trabao y e idea di tae
fotografo di Lago. E tempo naturalmente mi
tabata e unico. Pero mi a decidi mes ora cu
si mi kier haci esaki mi carera na Lago, an-
to mehor mi sinja tur loke mi por tocante
tecnico di camera y di labamento di portret.”

Pesey Norman a pasa mas anochi y mas
fin di siman den su lugar calor sacando prints
na un florin pa un, Ora el a spaar loke mas
of menos por a hibe’le New York y tene’le
aya pa mas of menos cuatro luna y mei di
estudio, el a acerca J. M. Whiteley pa e au-
sencia. E suplica siendo aprob4 el a sali pa
New York na April 1949 pa studia fotografia
comercial y di portret. Poco despues di su re-
greso for di Estados Unidos el a transferi pa
Aruba Esso News. S u contribucionnan foto-
grafico a anima paginanan di e corant des-
de e tempo y a contribui sin midi na crece-
mento y atraccion di e publicacion aki. Su
portretnan di Lago y su empleadonan ta so-
bresaliente den tur publicacionnan di Lago.

Bon na haltura di necesidadnan di enginieria,
su retratonan industrial a duna importancia

Unique Deposit
Of Oil Found
In Venezuela

A party of scientists from three af-
filiates of Standard Oil Company
(N.J.) has begun an intensive exa-
mination of a remarkable oil deposit
in the delta of the Orinoco River in
eastern Venezuela. The oil is a mere
five to ten thousand years old, which
means that it is still in the embryonic
stages of its development. Oil Pro-
duced from the average commercial
well is generally in excess of ten mil-
lion years old.

This fortuitous discovery has pro-
vided the first opportunity to ob-
serve nature in the act of creating’
an oil reservoir. The presence of oil-
like hydrocarbons in sediments has
been noted before, but this is the on-
ly case known in which hydrocar-
bons have actually begun to collect
in a stratagraphic trap. The deposit’
is thus the most conclusive evidence
to date that the oil-forming process
is a continuing one, and that oil is
not an exhaustible resource but is
constantly being renewed.

It is hoped that knowledge gained
of the conditions under which this
phenomenon is occuring will enable
future oil explorers to pin-point more
accurately the places where market-
able oil is likely to be found. The
ability to find new oil reserves is
assuming increasing importance,
particularly since world demand
for energy is soaring to the point
where, even with the development of
atomic power, the requirements for
oil will continue to mount far into
the future.

The base for the six-week study
project has been established at a
jungle outpost near the village of
Pedernales. Provisions and tons of
special research equipment were
shipped to the camp early in October.
This is believed to be the first time
that a fully-equipped laboratory has
been set up in the field to permit
analysis of sediments before any de-
terioration can occur.

The men are proceeding to sink
some eight boreholes at the site of
the oil trap. Rock samples, called
cores, are being taken at various in-
tervals as the drill descends. All
cores are being examined in the field
laboratory. Some will be sealed with
plastic and sent to the United States
for further studies. Despite the ex-
tensive field facilities set up, many
tests will still have to be performed
in U. S. laboratories and it will be
some months before the results of
the project are known.

The project was cited as one more
example of how the long and often

costly research ventures of large
industrial organizations can benefit
people everywhere, and sometimes,

as hoped in this case, obtain new
resources for human life.

The contract will go into effect

12,000 barrels daily.

Both YPF, which is the major
producer, and Esso SAPA produce
oil and gas in the Province of Neu-

contract as follows: An initial period
of three years during which Esso Ar-

elects to continue its operation, it
must select and surrender half of

the area and spend according to a
formula based on reserves and cor-

that a market exists for the oil.
The formula for the third period
involves an expenditure of at least
$24,000,000 if reserves to support
4000 cubic meters or more of daily

What Are Little
Buoys Made Of?

"Where, oh where, has my little boy gone...”
That's the first line of a folk song of dubious origin
that has been crooned to little children the world
over. But the lead could be changed to Where, oh
where, has my little Buoy gone,
lot of sense to the boys in the Marine Department.
This satirized version of the nursery rhyme could

and still make a

Maracaibo neighbors who recently

lost a buoy. Only the buoy they lost wasn’t what
you could describe as being little and they were
pretty sure it hadn’t waltzed out of the channel all
by itself—not dragging 25 fathoms of anchor chain
strong enough to anchor a battleship!

But we know where the "lost buoy” is and just
how “he” got there. Seems a certain tanker that
plies the Lake Maracaibo to Lago route accidentally
snagged onto our wayward friend and, completely
unaware, dragged the two-ton infant all the way
from the EM channel to San Nicolas Harbor—a
distance of approximately 60 miles.

Actually, no one is dead sure the tanker, which
will remain unnamed, snagged the EM gas buoy in
particular. Officially, it hasn’t been
missing, but, the marker did disappear the same
evening the tanker in question passed through the
channel and it did have a similar buoy in tow the
morning it reached Lago. On the other hand, every-

reported as

one knows that two "buoys” never
look alike or is it two "boys" never
look alike?

Getting on with our story just
as the sun rose the morning of Dec
8, the skipper of that” tanker no-
ticed a strange object astern. "Buoy,
what a night,” he must have mus-
ed. He had heard a strange thump-
ing noise admidships the night be-
fore and thought it was a broken
bilge plate flapping against the side
of the vessel. Now he knew!

The "lost buoy” was secured to a
dolphin to keep it from wandering
again. A few days later, riggers
from Mechanical-Yard retrieved it
with No. 6 derrick barge and moved
the delinquent buoy to a safer spot
ashore. Valued at more than $6000
it was fairly certain that the
soon would be sought by its
owners. So it was crated, secured to
the deck of the same tanker and
shipped back to what finally turned
out to be its home base, the EM
channel entering Lake Maracaibo
For all anyone knows, it re
at that spot, bobbin’ to the rhythms
of the swelling sea, blinkin’ its tiny
lamp during the evening hours. We
hepe it rests in peace, its desire to
roam again tethered with a
more secure anchor chain. Oh well,
remember that old saying, "buoys
will be buoys.”

Not without wit and quick to joke,
Norman volunteered the high point
in his career. The incident, laugh-
ingly proclaimed Norman, "was
when I went up to the top of the No.
2 Powerhouse stack with the Cus-
todis men and took pictures from
300-feet up.” Scared? "No, nét at
all. I don’t mind odd situations or
positions. It gives me a chance to
get pictures I wouldn't otherwise
get.” And this characteristic verve
coupled with exacting ability and 7it
could be better” standards is what
makes Norman Lago's top photo-
grapher..

Norman (Of Thee I) Singh - as one
office pundit chose to address him
- was born in Kitty Village, Brit-
ish Guiana, 35 years ago. One of five
children of a grocer, his early life
was no more, no less than the aver-
age B.G. lad growing up in the
Georgetown area. Early in life Nor-
man decided against the grocery
business. His father, B.G. born, took
over the established store of his fa-
ther, who migrated to B.G. from In-
dia. Norman, instead, studied sani-
tation as an apprentice in the De-
partment of Public Works. In 1943
he and 150 others signed up for La-
go employ. Why? "I don’t know
other than we heard the salaries
and benefits were good, and in a
short while you could earn enough
to stand alone. None of us knew
anything about Aruba or Lago.”

The trip of the 150, made at the
height of World War II, went from
British Guiana to Trinidad to Cura-
cao to Aruba aboard the United
| States troopship "State of Virginia.”
| Hardly had Norman’s ship pulled
away from the South American
| coast than two United States des-
troyers swooped alongside in escort.

ported sunk just a few miles off
the course of Norman's convoy
by United States naval air-
craft operating out of Trinidad.)
"What I remembered most, though,
was being right in the center of the
convoy. All of us on board the 'Vir-
ginia’ figured it was because we
were important personnel. When we
landed in Aruba we found out the
real reason. In addition to us the
ship was loaded with ammunition for
Aruba defense. I'll never forget one
well-dressed gentleman who travelled
with us. When we disembarked and
found out about the ammunition we
had been travelling with, this fel-
low dropped to his knees in thanks-



giving, blessed himself and imme-
diately requested to be taken back
to B.G. He was, too.”



At Lago, Norman went to work
in the Cracking Plant "because
there you could earn fast money.”
The only trouble was Norman and
shift work never could quite match
waking and sleeping hours. So Nor-
man transferred to Process Control
A fortunate move for all.

And now he is in Santa Barbara
studying to make it better. En route
across the United States his plane
stopped in Chicago long enough for
Norman to see snow. His postcard
reporting the incident wasn’t long
enough to include pertinent details
as to whether or not he photographed
it. Knowing Norman, though, it’s a
cinch he did — and undoubtedly to
the shrills of a tuneless whistle!

1959’s First 30-Year
Awards Go to Six
Men and Company

Six men and a company turned 30-industrial years old this month.
First men to be honored this year for attaining 30 years of Lago
service were Armand C. Hodge, Mechanical-Garage; Arthur E. Krott-
nauer Jr., Mechanical-Instrument; Julius W. Van Varsseveld, Pro-
cess-Cracking; Jackson W. Farrell, Process-Utilities; Joseph Kock,

General Services-Crafts, and John!
V. Friel, manager of the Industriil
Relations Department. The company
will be officially 30 years old Jan. 26.

Honored at a special management
staff meeting Jan. 7, the Lago vete-
rans were presented their 30-year
certificates and emblems by General
Manager W. A. Murray who said, "It
is a very pleasant function of the
management staff to honor you today

|for your long service at Lago. It is

a great satisfaction to see you men
achieve this milestone in your ca-
reers.”

F. E. Griffin Present

Also present for the ceremonies
was Executive Vice-President F. E.
Griffin who congratulated the 30-
year recipients and added, "Your
faces are familiar ones to me. It is
significant that you men are cele-
brating your 30th anniversary with
the company on the eve of its of-
ficial 30th birthday.”

To both of his Mechanical De-
partment men, Superintendent G. L.
MacNutt recalled that there wasn’t
much oil being refined at Lago when
they started here. Of Mr. Hodge he
said that he has been a dependable
employee whose willingness to work
any shift or day has been favorable
to the company. Mr. MacNutt also
added that Mr. Hodge has always
been active in church affairs. Direct-
ing his attention to Mr. Krottnauer.
Mr. MacNutt informed the group that
the general foreman had _ helped
build the powerhouse during the
early years. "Then he made the in-
strument craft a career with us,”
Mr. McNutt added. "That is one of
the crafts that has changed more
in 30 years than any other. As head
of that craft you have helped deve-
lop it into an extremely efficient

unit. Art was bound to succeed be-
cause his father was on the job and

saw that he didn’t wander off the
beaten path,” Mr. MacNutt said.

In congratulating Mr. Van Vars-
seveld and Mr. Farrell, Process Su-
perintendent M. Fisk said that both
have shown much adaptability to
assignments over the years. He
added that every operator likes to
have dependable men like Mr. Van
Varsseveld on his crew. Mr. Fisk
reported that it is possible for Mr.
Farrell to receive his 40-year em-
blem because of his age. "He has
been in Utilities for 26 years and
has shown great adaptability and
latent ability on the job, "Mr. Fisk
added.

"To every housewife in Seroe Co-
lorado, Joseph Kock is known as
Chappy,”’ General Services Superin-
tendent N. M. Shirley quipped when
he congratulated the crafts foreman.
Mr. Shirley continued with the re-
mark that Chappy had supervised
more paint jobs there than any
other man. He said he was a steady,
dependable, loyal worker with four
sons at Lago following in his foot-
steps. Never absent, Mr. Kock has
been in General Services for 23 of
his 30 years.

Outlined Friel’s Career

The 30-year career of Industrial

of Parana and was graduated from
that institution in 1953. After one
year’s employment in plastics
company, he joined Petrobras as a
chemical engineer. Mr. Patrocinio
received his degree in industrial
chemistry in 1951 from the Univers-
ity of Brazil. He joined Petrobras as
a chemical engineer in 1955 after
four years as a_ police department
toxicologist. Both men reside in San-
tos, Brazil, which is near the Cuba-
tao refinery where they are em-
ployed.

According to Mr. Rona, his com-
pany obtains a_ training program
agreement with whomever it pur-
chases its crude. Esso Export, which
is currently selling crude oil to
Petrobras, scheduled the train-
ing assignments through the Esso
Research and Engineering Company.
Mr. Rona explained that Petrobras is
51 per cent owned by the govern-
ment and 49 per cent by private in-
terests. "As the petroleum industry
is nationalized in my country, no
foreign interests are allowed,” he
added. He went on to say that al-
though there are privately owned re-
fineries in Brazil, all new refineries
will be 100 per cent state owned.
The country is building up an orga-
nization of trained technicians to
man these refineries, he continued.
Petrobras’ Cubatao refinery is the
largest in Brazil and has a through-
put of 90,000 barrels daily. Products
refined include motor gasolene, ke-
rosene, diesel fuel, fuel oil and ethy-
lene recovery.

Though the two men were away
from home during the holidays they
said any homesickness was alleviat-
ed somewhat by the hospitalitv
shown to them at the homes of E.
R. Carroll, process foreman, and J.
T. H. De Lange, Industrial Relations

A so-so 1.285 inches fell the last

"Well, I guess you could say it all started
on borrowed cash.”

"You're joking.”

"No, that’s the way I obtained money to
my first camera, a Speed Graphic.” So




buy

said Norman W. Singh, Lago's chief photo-
grapher, all the while suppressing an enlar-
ging grin into a thin-lipped smile at the



interviewer's disbelief or in a glowing mo-
ment of self-satisfaction as his mind flashed
back over a personal undertaking well done.
It was found to be the latter as a story un-
folded that bared enviable determination in
pursuit of a goal.

As much a part of Norman as his endless
and quite tuneless whistle is the statement:
"It could have been better.”’ This critical self-
analysis of his work seems to be made by Nor-
man as a mode of self-discipline. His is an
insatiable desire to improve, to do a little
better the next time. It has led him not only
into a successful career, but has also brought
him many honors the last of which was a
very distinctive first place in a world-wide
photography contest.

Sponsored by the Esso Camera Club U.K.
in London, his photograph of a Lago sand-
blaster was awarded first prize in the Inter-
national Photographic Competition. His dra-
matic portrayal of the Mechanical Depart-
ment employee at work, which first appear-
ed in the 1955 safety annual, drew high praise
and such commendation as ’’'The judge, who
is a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Socie-
ty and is known to be a very capable photo-
grapher, could not find any faults with the
print and expressed the view that he would
have liked to have taken the photograph him-
self.”

Award Taken In stride

But because of Norman’s "it could be bet-
ter” philosophy of work life, the glory of an
international first never diminished the desire
to move on. In spite of the laurels, there was
no time for rest. Typically Norman, the award
was taken in stride — one of the strides he
directed toward Santa Barbara, California,
and a four-month study stint at Brooks In-
stitute of Photography. The courses cover
motion picture techniques and portrait work,
and, making the most of the skilled instruc-
tion available, Norman plans to do some re-
view work in night classes if they can be ar-
ranged. Using furlough time, savings and a
huge pack of personal drive, the Santa Bar-
bara trip was initially made possible through
a Lago Scholarship Foundation grant. One of
two aspiring students to receive grants this
month, Norman has now added the Founda-
tion to his list of supporters in his endless and
seemingly tireless endeavor to become an out-
standing photographer.

His first was Charlie Overstreet, a former
Lago employee and fellow worker in Process
Control. Mr. Overstreet introduced Norman
to the camera and photography. It was all
new to this Process Control clerk. In his na-
tive British Guiana, which he had only left
a few years before to come to Aruba and La-
go for employ, he did not have a camera, had
no desire to own one and had only had his
picture taken once. But evidently the like was
latent because once he started assisting Mr.
Overstreet, he was overwhelmed with a craze
to develop the knowledge, skills and imagina-
tion of this art in himself,

Assists Mr. Overstreet.

He continued to assist Mr. Overstreet and
as he worked side-by-side with the Lago ex-
patriate he learned. Another who joined their
ventures in Mr. Overstreet's private darkroom
was Igor Broz, son of Dr. R. K. Broz. He, too,
taught Norman. The two — Mr. Overstreet
and Mr. Broz — obtained the utmost in pro-
gressive cultivation. The seed was planted and
nurtured into a budding photographer in the

form of a short, stocky young man of Asiatic
Indian heritage. But photography, by the na-
ture of the finely ground optics utilized in cap-
turing images, commands more than desire
and skill. Expensive, precise equipment is
needed by the professional photographer. Nor-
man had no real capital. He had only work-
ed for Lago a few years coming here at the
age of 20 as something of an adventurer, but
with little or no financial backing..

Faith Proved Correct

"There was only one person to turn to and
that was Mr. Overstreet. It was natural. He
taught me all I knew and I was sure he would
help me start on my own. My faith in Mr.
Overstreet proved correct. I guess I will al-
ways be indebted to him. He lent me money
and equipment, and he freely gave of all his
photography knowledge.”

With money borrowed from Mr. Overstreet,
Norman brought the Speed Graphic that was
his first camera. Years of hard, back-break-
ing night and weekend work followed to re-
move the debt. Norman lived in the bachelor
quarters of Lago Heights in those days. He
transferred his cubicle of ample living space
into a cramped dual-purpose dakroom and bed-
room. On weekends during daylight hours a
blanket from Norman’s bed covered the win-
dow shutting out the sun’s bright rays from
sensitive photographic paper. The door was
closed tight and while Norman sweltered he
printed; he developed; he enlarged; he ferro-
typed; he worked and worked some more. It
was laborious, by no means always enjoyable,
but with each hour’s effort Norman earned
guilders enough to repay Mr. Overstreet’s
loan.

About the time Norman had established a
strong working relationship with his camera,
two important events transpired. Lago de-
cided to record aspects of its industrial life
photographically, and Steve Sery, knowing
of Norman’s recently acquired photogra-
phic skills, asked if he would like to be
the man behind Lago’s first camera. It was
a Speed Graphic and, at the time, Norman
was in the Estimating Group. And as a mem-
ber of this group he took off on his and La-
go’s first industrial photographic assignments:
product samples, construction of Nos. 1 and
2 Finger Piers and tank construction.

"I liked the work and I liked the idea of be-
ing Lago’s photographer. Then, or course, I
was the only one. But I decided right away
that if I were to make this my career at Lago,
I had better learn all I could about camera and
darkroom techniques.”

Study Leave-Of-Absence

So Norman spent sorne more weekends and
nights in his close, hot-box of a private dark-
room and bedroom grinding out prints at a
guilder a copy. When he had saved what he
estimated would get him to New York, keep
him there for four and one-half months of
study and return him, he approached J. M.
Whiteley for a leave-of-absence. The request
granted, he departed for New York in April,
1949 to study commercial and portrait pho-
tography. Shortly after his return from the
United States he was transferred to the Aruba
Esso News. His photographic contributions
have livened the pages of the paper ever since
and have aided immeasurably the News’
growth and appeal, His graphic portrayals of
Lago and its employees have been note-
worthy in the development of Lago publica-
tions. Keenly aware of engineering needs, his
industrial photographs have given tremen-
dous importance to that phase of Lago photo-
graphy.

Throughout the refinery Norman is known.
He is as well known throughout the island as
evidenced by his ability to gain entrance in-
to any sports or social function without ticket
or form of pass. Norman's pass is Norman,

ture that won first place.
Esaki ta e portret di sand-

mio.

"Wel, mi ta kere cu por bien bisa cu tur esa-
ki a cuminza cu un préstamo.”

"Bo ta chanza.”

"No, asina mi a haya placa pa cumpra mi
promer camera, un Speed Graphic.” Asina
Norman W. Singh, chief photographer di La-
go, a bisa, mientras tanto suprimiendo un
sonrisa pasobra e entrevistador no kier a ke-
re y mientras su memoria lo mester tabata
traha cu satisfaccion propio ariba un empre-
sa cu a resulta bon. A resulta cu tabata e ul-
timo segun tabata desaroya un storia cu ta
munstra determinacion enviable den pursi-
guimento di un obheto.

Mes tanto un parti di Norman como su
fluitmento sin fin y sin pieza ta su expresion:
"Por tabata mehor.” E analyse critico aki di
su mes trabao aparentemente a worde inven-
ta door di Norman como modo di disciplina
propio. El tin un deseo insaciable pa mehora,
pa haci un tiki mehor otro biaha. No sola-
mente esaki a hibe’le ariba un carera exitoso,
pero tambe a trece hopi honor pe, e ultimo
siendo e promer lugar den un concurso inter-
nacional di fotografia.

Ausppicia door di Esso Camera Club U.K. na
London, su retrato di un sandblaster na Lago
a worde duna promer premio den Internatio-
nal Photographic Competition. Su _ retrato
dramatico di e empleado di Mechanical De-
partment na trabao, cual a aparece pa di pro-
mer vez den e anual di seguridad pa 1955, a
merece gran elogio y comentario manera "E
juez kende su mes ta un Fellow di e Royal
Photographic Society y kende ta conoci como
un fotografo masha competente, no por a ha-
ya ningun falta cu e print y a expresa cu el
mes lo a gusta di saca un portret asina.”

"Por Tabata Mehor”

Pero pa motibo di Norman su filosofia cu
"por tabata mehor,” e gloria di e promer lu-
gar den un concurso internacional no a men-
gua su deseo pa bai adilanti. No obstante e
prestacion no tabatin tempo pa sosega. Ty-
picamente Norman, el a tuma e promio como
principio di un otro ventura — y esaki ta hi-
be’le Santa Barbara, California, unda el ta
bai sigui un curso di cuatro luna na Brooks
bri metodonan di pelicula mobil y obranan
di portret, y, sacando maximo ventaja di bon
Institute of Photography. E cursonan ta cu-
instruccion cu ta disponible, Norman tin in-
tencion di haci algun obra di revista den clase
di anochi si ta posible. Usando tempo di va-
cacion, placa gespaar y un gran cantidad di
energia personal, e viaja pa Santa Barbara
a worde haci posible inicialmente door di un
subsidio di Lago Scholarship Foundation. Un
di e dos studiantenan cu a recibi subsidio e
luna aki, Norman awor a agrega e Founda-
tion na lista di su ayudantenan den su lucha
sin fin y indescansable pa bira un fotografo
sobresaliente.

Su promer tabata Charlie Overstreet, un
anterior empleado di Lago y companjero di
trabao den Process Control. Sr. Overstreet a
introduci Norman na camera y sacamento di
portret. Tabata algo henteramente nobo pa e
klerk aki di Process Control. Na British Guia-
na, unda el e nace, y for di unda el a bini Aru-
ba y Lago algun anja promer pa traha, el no
tabatin un camera, el no tabatin deseo pa tin
un tampoco, y solamente un biaha el a yega
di laga saca su portret. Pero evidentemente
e gusto tabata latente pasobra una vez el a
cuminza asisti Sr. Overstreet, el a worde apo-
deraé pa un deseo pa desaroya su saber, abili-
dad y imaginacion di e arte aki den su mes.
El a sigui asisti Sr. Overstreet y segun el ta-
bata traha hunto cu ne el tabata sinja. Un
otro cu a reuni hunto cu nan den e camera ob-



scuro di Sr. Overstreet tabata Igor Broz, yiu
di Dr. R. K. Broz, El tambe a sinja Norman.
Nan dos — Sr. Overstreet y Sr. Broz — a ob-
tene e mayor resultado di cultivacion progre-
sivo E semilla a worde planta y nurtura den
forma di un fotografo den figura di un hom-
ber crotico y robusto di origen Asiatico Indio.
Pero fotografia, pa motibo di e lensnan pre-
ciso cu tin mester pa captura imagen, ta re-
quiri mas cu deseo y saber. E fotografo pro-
fesional mester di aparatonan preciso y cos-
toso. Norman no tabatin capital. Apenas al-
gun anja el tabata traha pa Lago desde cu el
a bini aki na edad di 20 anja como un aven-
turero, pero cu casi nada recurso financiero.

”’Tabatin solamente un persona cerca kende
acudi y esey tabata Sr. Overstreet. Tabata
natural. El a sinja mi tur loke mi tabata sabi
y mi tabata segur cu ello ayuda mi cuminza
ariba mi mes. Mi fe den Sr. Overstreet a re
sulta correcto. Mi ta kere cu semper lo mi ke-
da agradecido na dje.. El a presta mi placa y
aparato y el a duna gratis tur saber.”

Cu placa presta di Sr. Overstreet Norman
a cumpra e Speed Graphiic cu tabata su pro-
mer camera. Anjanan di trabao duro te laat
di anochi y ariba fin di siman a sigui pa pa-
ga e debe. E tempo Norman tabata biba den
bachelor quarters na Lago Heights. El a pasa
cosnan den un cuarto cu el por a usa na mes
tempo como kamber di drumi y camera ob-
scura. Durante finnan di siman un laken di
Norman su cama tabata cubri e bentana pa
tapa solo for di e papel sensitivo, E porta ta-
bata cerra duro y mientras Norman tabata
soda di calor el tabata print, desaroya, haci
grandi y ferrotyped; despues el ta traha mas y
mas. Tabata trabao duro, no semper agrada-
ble, pero cu cada ora di esfuerzo Norman ta-
bata gana bastante placa pa paga e préstamo
di Sr. Overstreet.

Mas o menos e tempo cu Norman a estable-
ce un fuerte cooperacion cu su camera, dos
evento importante a socede. Lago a decidi pa
registra aspectonan di su bida industrial fo-
tograficamente, y Steve Sery, sabiendo
di Norman su _ saber di fotografia cu
el a adquiri recientemente, a puntre'le si el
tabata kier ser e homber tras di promer ca-
mera di Lago. Tabata un Speed Graphic y, e
tempo, Norman tabata den Estimating Group.
Y como miembro di e grupo aki el a laga sali
ariba su promer encargonan fotografico pa
Lago: muestranan di producto, construccion
di pier Nos. 1 y 2 y construccion di tanki.

Fotografo Di Lago

"Mi tabata gusta e trabao y e idea di tae
fotografo di Lago. E tempo naturalmente mi
tabata e unico. Pero mi a decidi mes ora cu
si mi kier haci esaki mi carera na Lago, an-
to mehor mi sinja tur loke mi por tocante
tecnico di camera y di labamento di portret.”

Pesey Norman a pasa mas anochi y mas
fin di siman den su lugar calor sacando prints
na un florin pa un, Ora el a spaar loke mas
of menos por a hibe’le New York y tene’le
aya pa mas of menos cuatro luna y mei di
estudio, el a acerca J. M. Whiteley pa e au-
sencia. E suplica siendo aprob4 el a sali pa
New York na April 1949 pa studia fotografia
comercial y di portret. Poco despues di su re-
greso for di Estados Unidos el a transferi pa

Unique Deposit
Of Oil Found
In Venezuela

A party of scientists from three af-
filiates of Standard Oil Company
(N.J.) has begun an intensive exa-
mination of a remarkable oil deposit
in the delta of the Orinoco River in
eastern Venezuela. The oil is a mere
five to ten thousand years old, which
means that it is still in the embryonic
stages of its development. Oil Pro-
duced from the average commercial
well is generally in excess of ten mil-
lion years old.

This fortuitous discovery has pro-
vided the first opportunity to ob-
serve nature in the act of creating’
an oil reservoir. The presence of oil-
like hydrocarbons in sediments has
been noted before, but this is the on-
ly case known in which hydrocar-
bons have actually begun to collect
in a stratagraphic trap. The deposit’
is thus the most conclusive evidence
to date that the oil-forming process
is a continuing one, and that oil is
not an exhaustible resource but is
constantly being renewed.

It is hoped that knowledge gained
of the conditions under which this
phenomenon is occuring will enable
future oil explorers to pin-point more
accurately the places where market-
able oil is likely to be found. The
ability to find new oil reserves is
assuming increasing importance,
particularly since world demand
for energy is soaring to the point
where, even with the development of
atomic power, the requirements for
oil will continue to mount far into
the future.

The base for the six-week study
project has been established at a
jungle outpost near the village of
Pedernales. Provisions and tons of
special research equipment were
shipped to the camp early in October.
This is believed to be the first time
that a fully-equipped laboratory has
been set up in the field to permit
analysis of sediments before any de-
terioration can occur.

The men are proceeding to sink
some eight boreholes at the site of
the oil trap. Rock samples, called
cores, are being taken at various in-
tervals as the drill descends. All
cores are being examined in the field
laboratory. Some will be sealed with
plastic and sent to the United States
for further studies. Despite the ex-
tensive field facilities set up, many
tests will still have to be performed
in U. S. laboratories and it will be
some months before the results of
the project are known.

The project was cited as one more
example of how the long and often

costly research ventures of large
industrial organizations can benefit
people everywhere, and sometimes,

as hoped in this case, obtain new
resources for human life.

Esso Argentina has undertaken ex-
penditure commitments in the pro-
ducing and exploration part of the
contract as follows: An initial period
of three years during which Esso Ar-
gentina will spend a minimum of
$10,000,000; a second period of three
years during which it will spend a
minimum of $13,000,000; a third
period of four years at the begin-

elects to continue its operation, it
must select and surrender half of

the area and spend according to a
formula based on reserves and cor-
responding producibility provided
that a market exists for the oil.
The formula for the third period
involves an expenditure of at least
$24,000,000 if reserves to support
4000 cubic meters or more of daily
production have been proven by the
end of the second period. In the final
period of 20 years no minimum com-

What Are Little
Buoys Made Of?

"Where, oh where, has my little boy gone...”
That's the first line of a folk song of dubious origin
that has been crooned to little children the world
over. But the lead could be changed to Where, oh
where, has my little Buoy gone,
lot of sense to the boys in the Marine Department.
This satirized version of the nursery rhyme could

and still make a

Maracaibo neighbors who recently

lost a buoy. Only the buoy they lost wasn’t what
you could describe as being little and they were
pretty sure it hadn’t waltzed out of the channel all
by itself—not dragging 25 fathoms of anchor chain
strong enough to anchor a battleship!

But we know where the "lost buoy” is and just
how “he” got there. Seems a certain tanker that
plies the Lake Maracaibo to Lago route accidentally
snagged onto our wayward friend and, completely
unaware, dragged the two-ton infant all the way
from the EM channel to San Nicolas Harbor—a
distance of approximately 60 miles.

Actually, no one is dead sure the tanker, which
will remain unnamed, snagged the EM gas buoy in
particular. Officially, it hasn’t been
missing, but, the marker did disappear the same
evening the tanker in question passed through the
channel and it did have a similar buoy in tow the
morning it reached Lago. On the other hand, every-

reported as

one knows that two "buoys” never
look alike or is it two "boys" never
look alike?

Getting on with our story just
as the sun rose the morning of Dec
8, the skipper of that” tanker no-
ticed a strange object astern. "Buoy,
what a night,” he must have mus-
ed. He had heard a strange thump-
ing noise admidships the night be-
fore and thought it was a broken
bilge plate flapping against the side
of the vessel. Now he knew!

The "lost buoy” was secured to a
dolphin to keep it from wandering
again. A few days later, riggers
from Mechanical-Yard retrieved it
with No. 6 derrick barge and moved
the delinquent buoy to a safer spot
ashore. Valued at more than $6000
it was fairly certain that the
soon would be sought by its
owners. So it was crated, secured to
the deck of the same tanker and
shipped back to what finally turned
out to be its home base, the EM
channel entering Lake Maracaibo
For all anyone knows, it re
at that spot, bobbin’ to the rhythms
of the swelling sea, blinkin’ its tiny
lamp during the evening hours. We
hepe it rests in peace, its desire to
roam again tethered with a
more secure anchor chain. Oh well,
remember that old saying, "buoys
will be buoys.”

glasses, smile, cameras slung over

Not without wit and quick to joke,
Norman volunteered the high point
in his career. The incident, laugh-
ingly proclaimed Norman, "was
when I went up to the top of the No.
2 Powerhouse stack with the Cus-
todis men and took pictures from
300-feet up.” Scared? "No, nét at
all. I don’t mind odd situations or
positions. It gives me a chance to
get pictures I wouldn't otherwise
get.” And this characteristic verve
coupled with exacting ability and 7it
could be better” standards is what
makes Norman Lago's top photo-
grapher..

Norman (Of Thee I) Singh - as one
office pundit chose to address him
- was born in Kitty Village, Brit-
ish Guiana, 35 years ago. One of five
children of a grocer, his early life
was no more, no less than the aver-
age B.G. lad growing up in the
Georgetown area. Early in life Nor-
man decided against the grocery
business. His father, B.G. born, took
over the established store of his fa-
ther, who migrated to B.G. from In-
dia. Norman, instead, studied sani-
tation as an apprentice in the De-
partment of Public Works. In 1943
he and 150 others signed up for La-
go employ. Why? "I don’t know
other than we heard the salaries
and benefits were good, and in a
short while you could earn enough
to stand alone. None of us knew
anything about Aruba or Lago.”

The trip of the 150, made at the
height of World War II, went from
British Guiana to Trinidad to Cura-
cao to Aruba aboard the United
| States troopship "State of Virginia.”
| Hardly had Norman’s ship pulled
away from the South American
| coast than two United States des-
troyers swooped alongside in escort.

MORE THAN 400 residents of Tanki Leendert gathered at their Youth
Center Dec. 28 to hear members of Christian Youth Fellowship sing
Christmas carols. Following songs by the Seroe Colorado teenagers, a
music was presented by the Folklorico Arubano
orchestra, the Mi Preferido caja di musica and Frans Croes.
MAS CU 400 residente di Tanki Leendert a bini hunto na nan Centro
Juvenil Dee. 28 pa tende miembronan di Christian Youth Fellowship canta

ported sunk just a few miles off
the course of Norman's convoy
by United States naval air-
craft operating out of Trinidad.)
"What I remembered most, though,
was being right in the center of the
convoy. All of us on board the 'Vir-
ginia’ figured it was because we
were important personnel. When we
landed in Aruba we found out the
real reason. In addition to us the
ship was loaded with ammunition for
Aruba defense. I'll never forget one
well-dressed gentleman who travelled
with us. When we disembarked and
found out about the ammunition we
had been travelling with, this fel-
low dropped to his knees in thanks-



giving, blessed himself and imme-
diately requested to be taken back
to B.G. He was, too.”



At Lago, Norman went to work
in the Cracking Plant "because
there you could earn fast money.”
The only trouble was Norman and
shift work never could quite match
waking and sleeping hours. So Nor-
man transferred to Process Control
A fortunate move for all.

And now he is in Santa Barbara
studying to make it better. En route
across the United States his plane
stopped in Chicago long enough for
Norman to see snow. His postcard
reporting the incident wasn’t long
enough to include pertinent details
as to whether or not he photographed
it. Knowing Norman, though, it’s a
cinch he did — and undoubtedly to
the shrills of a tuneless whistle!
