Lago Holds NSC
October Lead

There's a good chance that La-
go may repeat its 1957 first place
safety honors and win first place
in the National Safety Council
for its 1958 safety performance.

The most recent report from
the National Safety Council
shows that Lago was in first

place at the end of October in its
safety competition with other
major petroleum companies. In
second place at that time was the
General Petroleum Corporation of
Los Angeles, California. As of
the end of October, Lago had a
frequency rate of 0.97 compared
to General Petroleum’s frequency
rate of 1.17. Lago’s safety record
improved to 0.90 at year’s end.

110 Curacao Students

Tour Lago

Three bus loads of students —

Jan. 17

110 boys, girls and teachers from

Peter Stuyvesant School in Curacao — arrived at Lago Jan. 17 for a
tour of the refinery's facilities. The youthful group had arrived in Aru-
ba the day before aboard the Dutch destroyer Van Speyk for a three-
day visit which also included an island tour and several sports contests.

From their quarters at Van Gijns,
students and teachers proceeded by
bus on a route that took them past
the Acid & Edeleanu plants and up
the main refinery road to the Ad-
ministration Building. There they
were greeted by B. Teagle, public
relations manager, who, in the course
of extending Lago’s official greeting
to the Peter Stuyvesant students
gathered in the main conference
room, told the group that "one of
your most important challenges in
life will be putting into use in later
life the principles you are learning
now in school.”

The group of 110 students was
split into two tour sections, half go-
ing to the laboratories while the
other visited the Cracking Plant.

When these tours were concluded,
the groups switched locations and
the laboratory group moved on to
the Cracking Plant.

Laboratory tour leaders were F.
H. Himes, H. S. Goodwin and V. F. C.
Gomez. When bothe groups had
toured the laboratories and Crack-
ing Plant they were taken to the
Reception Center for refreshments
and souvenirs of their Lago visit.
That evening the Curacao students
were guests at a Lago Heights dance
held in their honor.

The night before the Lago tour,
Peter Stuyvesant basketball teams
competed against teams from Lago
High School.

From Iran To Aruba

Near East Oil Executive
Observing Lago Operations

Currently observing non-technical functions of Lago’s vast opera-
tions is a compact, slightly balding, taciturn young man. Neatly and
conservatively dressed, his benign countenance and gracious bearing
suggest innermost serenity that belies the turmoil often associated
with his people and his part of the world.

He is Jamshid Varzandeh of Ah-
waz, Iran. Mr. Varzandeh is on a
training assignment from his duties
as administrative superintendent of
the Ahwaz operations of the Iranian
Oil Exploration and Producing Co.,
Ltd., a subsidiary of the Consortium.

In clearly-phrased, succinct state-
ments seasoned with a soft accent,
Mr. Varzandeh very politely cor-
rected the fallacy held as truth by
many Western readers that Iran is
involved in frequent Eastern Medi-
terranean or Near East turmoil.
"This is not so,” says Lago’s Iranian
visitor, The people and government
of Iran find no quarrel with political
or religious ideologies of its popula-
tion or those of surrounding coun-
tries. The words, softly spoken, gave
veracity to the premise and insight
to the nature of these people. They
were spoken not in smug defense
nor rising flippancy, but quietly,
unemotionally and with pride by an
industrial emissary of a country
favored with utopian congeniality.

This kindred fellowship flows
through some 18,000,000 people from
the tribal, Bedouin-like Kurds of the



Zagros Mountains in the west to

the distinguished, nattily-dressed
politicos and merchants of Teheran
and Isfahan, government and. rug
capitals, respectively. The country
is largely Moslem — as is Mr. Var-
zandeh, but it also affords religious
tolerance for a generous mixture of
the world’s great religious. Compa-
tibility, again, is sovereign, prayer
a right, and so it is that in a Mos-
lem country stand the temples,
churches and mosques of Jew,
Christian, Bahai and Zoroastrian.

Politically, Iran steadfastly main-
tains a neutral role. The bulk of
Iran's population holds no sympathy
for Gamel Abdel Nasser and _ his
United Arab Republic. Mr. Varzan-
deh claims his compatriots to be
strongly in support of their youth-
ful, energetic monarch, His Majesty
Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi.
There are no strong Communist
blocs in Iran, but this political tenet
is ever present. "After all,’’ remind-
ed Mr. Varzandeh, ''we are bordered
on the north by Russia.”

But the patient, understanding
nature guided by centuries-old wis-

Lago Wins 10th National

Safety

Courneil Award

Lago has been awarded its 10th Award of Honor by the National
Safety Council for its safety achievement recorded last year. The
company earned the safety honor for having passed the 3,000,000 man
hour mark in 1958 without a disabling injury. The consecutive man

hours were established from May
perfect 4,487,871 man hours were
worked.

Of the 10 safety honors Lago has
earned since receiving its first in
1951, eight have been awarded for
having passed the 3,000,000 man
hour requirement. In 1954 and 1957,
two awards were earned by the com-
pany for outstanding safety per-
formances for the entire year as
compared to other contestants in
Lago’s division.

In Group A Manufacturing divi-
sion under National Safety Council
listings, Lago established its all-
time record safety year in 1957.
From Dec. 8, 1956 through June 5,
1957, a total of 6,520,829 man hours
were worked without a disabling in-
jury. A 0.61 frequency rate was es-
tablished for the six-month period.
This means that there were just 0.61
disabling injuries for every 1,000,000
man hours worked—slightly more
than one such injury in a two-month
period.

The ten awards were won in the

THIS STRIKING industrial photograph captures all
the power and ingenuity that Mechanical Department
riggers must utilize on the job daily. Lifting this 52-
ton piece of equipment from the deck of a Lykes
freighter was considered one of the toughest rigging

25 through Oct. 6 when a safety-

years 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957
and 1958. The company scored three
times in 1954 and twice each in 1955
and 1957. Since 1951, a total of
36,000,000 man hours, enough to
keep Lago going day and night for
three solid years, were worked with-
out a disabling injury.

Though each award is _ presented
to the company fer its safety ar-
chives, it is in reality a_ tribute to
the thousands of Lago employees
whose safe work practices keep the
safety record clean.

M. Haider Named
Jersey Director

Election of Michael L. Haider,
president of International Petroleum
Company, Limited, as a director of
Standard Oil Company (N.J.) was
recently announced.

At the same time, Hines H. Baker,
who has spent more than 39 years
in the oil business, resigned as
a director and member of the Jer-
sey Standard executive committee.
Both actions were effective Jan. 1.

Mr. Haider has served since April
1, 1954 as a president of Interna-
tional Petroleum, a Jersey affiliate
whose principal activities are in Co-
lombia, Peru and Venezuela. A na-
tive of Mandan, North Dakota, and

a 1927 graduate of Stanford Uni-
versity, Mr. Haider has had exten-
sive experience in petroleum re-

search and production.

He was with Imperial Oil Limit-
ed, Jersey's affiliate in Canada, from
1946 to 1952 as head of the produc-
ing and exploration department, and
as a director and a vice president.
It was during this period when the

Jamshid Varzandeh

(Continued from page 1)
dom, some saved for posterity in the
philosophical writings of the coun-
try’s puissant sages like Omar
Khayyam of the Tenth Century, has
patterned Iranians of today as per-
sonified by Mr. Varzandeh. His is a
sanguine temperament, free of
malice or foreboding thought. His
gentle demeanor undoubtedly bore
direct relation to his choice of pro-

fession — and it wasn’t the oil busi-
ness as it is now via what most
Western oil men would consider a

devious and unique route. There are
those who become oil men
gineers, chemists, process workers,
tradesmen, accountants, industrial
relations men, but not Jim,” as he
is popularly known. He became an
oil man through animal husbandry.
Sound strange? It isn’t when the
geographics of Southwestern Iran
are known. This is the area of the
Abadan refinery. It is also where
many of the producing fields are
located. The area is desert; it is on
the Persian Gulf; it is hot, or, bet-
ter yet, it is hot hot. Milk and pro-
duce are in scant supply in arid lo-
cales, Native herders and farmers
either don’t exist or operate on a
scale so tiny their harvest hardly
tends the wants of their own. Into
these areas of the Near East went
the oil companies and their thou-
sands upon thousands of workers —
Abadan for all its operations has a
complement of over 25,000. How to
feed the workers quickly resolved
into a "do it yourself” program. Ac-
cording to Mr. Varzandeh, the lo-
gistics were such that transporta-
tion of needed nutriment was "ex-
tremely difficult, but not necessarily
impossible.” Mr. Varzandeh conti-

as en-

nued: "It was decided many years
ago to have dairy farms and areas
of ground under cultivation worked
by employees of the oil company for
oil company personnel. The oil com-
panies had the means to maintain
large-scale farm operations, which,
of course, the native herder did not.
I speak specifically of feed for the
dairy herd. All feed had to be trans-
ported to the farms. And for a large
herd capable of producing upwards
of 600 pints of milk daily as ours
did, it takes a sizable organization
to transport the required feed.
Native herders? Yes, they do exist
in Southwest Iran, but their maxi-
mum production I would’ estimate
at about 10 to 15 pints of milk daily.
Tt is just too dry and hot for an in-
dividual to operate a large scale
agricultural venture.”

But that is strictly the
Gulf area of Iran, Mr.
pointed out. Foremost vocation in
Iran is agriculture, and not oil or
rug making. That is why Mr. Var-
zandeh entered Teheran University,
not too many years ago, as an agri-
cultural student. Upon graduation
he went to Masjed Soleyman, in the
Zagros Mountain foothills, as a hor-
ticultural expert for the Anglo-
Iranian Oil Co. Four years later he
took over the company’s dairy farm
and some 2000 hectares under culti-
vation outside Ahwaz. Then came
the nationalization of Iranian natu-
ral resources early this decade and
the National Iranian Oil Co., after
assuming responsibility of the farms,
decided to close the Ahwaz opera-
tions. Another, still larger, is main-
tained by the Consortium in Aba-
dan.

| Varzandeh went to work for the
Consortium subsidiary as personnel
assistant to the deputy general
fields manager in producing areas.
He next became administrative su-
perintendent in the Masjed Soley-
man area, and prior to the Novem-
ber, 1958 start of his 12-month
training trip, he became administra-
tive superintendent of the Ahwaz

section.

Lago was Mr. Varzandeh’s first
stop after a ten-day stay in New
York, Here he observed the func-

tions of the Industrial and Public
Relations Departments, General Ser-
vices, Lago Police and Technical
Services Departments. About the
middle of February he will leave for
Venezuela and short training stints
with Creole and Gulf, then back to
the United States to observe Hum-
ble’s operations in Texas.

Mr. Varzandeh speaks’ excellent
English, some French which he
learned during early school years,
his native Persian tongue and also
Turkish. The latter language he ac-
quired from his parents. Both
Iranians, they traveled quite exten-
sively because of his father’s busi-
ness. At one point in the elder Mr.
Varzandeh’s career, he settled in
Istanbul, Turkey. It was here Jim”
was born and lived the first two
years of his life. He later lived in
Teheran, then Bandar-e Pahlavi on
the coast of the Caspian Sea, much
of which provides excellent beach
and resort facilities.

"In fact, it is just a few hours
drive from Teheran to the Caspian
resorts, and many business people
spend the weekends there. There
are also some wonderful ski resorts

of his skiing there,’’ Mr. Varzandeh
explained.

He told of the excellent climate in
Teheran, its four seasons, and how
the Iranian calendar is based on the
four seasons. The first day of the
new year is the first day of spring,
March 21. The usual New Year's
Day of the Western world falls
shortly after the start of the Iranian
fourth quarter, or the winter sea-
son. The oil companies, however,
use the Gregorian calendar.

Iran, Mr. Varzandeh assured, is a
very progressive, modern country.
It has modern cities, modern high-
ways traversed by late-model United
States, German and British cars,
growing industrial centers, a num-
ber of universities specializing in
medical and agricultural courses
and prosperous rug and cloth cen-
ters. The day of the Iranian veiled
distaff face has all but become a
part of the history of Persia. "I saw

some when I was a boy, and you
might possibly see some _ today in

elderly folk who choose to cling to

older ways. But they are very
scarce, actually,” said he of his
people. "It was all part of religious

laws in an age when people believed
not in leaders, but only in the ways
of religion. Religious laws were the
only means by which people could
be made to do what was good for
them.”

Mr. Varzandeh noted that many
old customs and religious laws are
no longer observed in Iran. Asked
how religious laws could be broken,
he answered that they were not be-
ing broken, but merely revised. The
wisdom of Mohammed had foreseen
the advancement of society and his
devout for in the Koran — the Mos-
lem conterpart of the Bible — it is
written "You must adopt your child-
ren to the customs of the times.”

For centuries Moslems prayed five
times a day. They prayed before sun-
rise, at lunch time, before sunset,
after sunset and before retiring.
"In addition to acknowledging the
faith, it accomplished three things:
telling of time, cleanliness and exer-
cise,” Mr. Varzandeh explained. "By
the sequence of prayers everyone
knew what time it was. People cen-
turies ago had no time pieces. A
Moslem must clean his face, hands
and feet every time he prays. So,
five times a day he had to clean
himself. Remember, these were days
when sanitation was unknown in the
Near East, so prayer aided cleanli-
ness. And, finally, a Moslem’s pray-
er consists of standing, kneeling and
bending so that when finished he had
exercised, something people of yes-
teryear hardly did. Prayer five
times a day is a perfect example of
an old religious law enacted for the
times and the people of those times.
Today, many Iranians do not hold
to the old laws of prayer. The same
is true in some instances in the use
of alcohol, pork, and observance of
fast month, Yes, there are liquor
stores in Iran,” added Mr. Varzandeh
with just a faint hint of a smile. Per-
sia, as the country was known years
ago, has been Moslem since its con-
version to Mohammedanism. Prior
to that time its people were follow-
ers of Zoroastrianism — some still
are — traditionally derived from
the prophet Zoroaster early in the
first millennium BC.

Naturally, Mr. Varzandeh had to
jot down a few characters of the
Persian alphabet. As his pen skip-
ped along from right to left leaving
behind neatly formed curly-cues,
dots and dashes, he said his alphabet
only had 32 characters and once
they are learned the remainder of
the language comes easy. Oh, yes!

Acid & Edeleanu
Vital to Lago

"I moved my bunk into the Treating Plant switch room and holed
up there for two weeks. We had to work ’round the clock and use
some pretty crude methods, but we managed to sweeten enough oil
to put Lago’s acid operations in business.”

In just a few words, Lago pioneer Bob Heinze had described his
first major contribution as Acid Plant head back in the early years.
Displaying ingenuity and resourcefulness, young Heinze had left the
"comfort” of No. 2 bungalow for a voluntary two-week confinement
in the switch room. It was a 24-hour day-to-day existence. Even his
meals were brought in. "But I did get out for an occasional bath,”
he quipped to the interviewer.

When Bob Heinze arrived aboard the Paul Harwood in February,
1929, the Acid Plant was months from completion. Concrete founda-
tions had been poured for towers; the No. 1 Contact Plant was only
partially finished.

"Naturally, there was no sulphuric acid being produced so there
wasn’t much for me to do. I remember that the No. 1 topping still
was on stream and No. 2 was nearing completion,” he said.

Then Bob discovered the situation that led to his switch room ex-
perience. Unsweetened gasoline was being shipped to Louisiana
where it had to be unloaded, sweetened then reloaded and shipped
to Savannah, Georgia, for marketing. ’’I questioned this practice and
was told, ‘nobody around here knows how to sweeten it’.”

Bob corrected this faulty notion with: "I’ve sweetened plenty of
gasoline at Casper.’ He next uncovered a stock of litharge (lead) and
caustic which gave him ingredients for the "doctor’’ solution.

"I told the boss that if he’d lend me some pipefitters
and give me two men we could ship out sweetened gaso-
line in three weeks, Everything was hooked up to pump
in circles so we had to straighten out the lines before we
could do anything else,” he continued.

He got his two men—one had "seen a sweetening plant
once’”’ and the other was willing to learn. Unavailable at
the moment were E. Spitz, now shift foreman in Acid
& Edeleanu, and A. Schwarcz, now shift foreman in the
Cracking Plant, who helped start the No, 1 Contact
Plant with Bob and M. C. Bates. The men were in the
employ of Chemical Construction Co., Acid Plant con-
tractor, at the time Bob needed help.

Into the switch house on its dirt floor went Bob’s bunk
He ran the plant during the day shift, a’ second man
took over from 3 p.m. until midnight and the "expe-
rienced” man "who had once seen” worked the remain-
ing hours. "At least the man I got off the stills could
start and stop the pumps. The other guy woke me con-
tinually to get him out of a fix. But after a few days
things began to click and Lago was in the sweetening
business for good. In just three weeks we had sweetened
140,000 barrels of gasoline, enough to load two ships
for a direct run to Savannah.” Bob Heinze had tamed
the high sulphur crude.

Leaving his newly trained cadre to maintain the ope-
ration, Bob directed his energy toward his unfinished
Acid Plant. "I was real eager to get my plant on stream.
Up to that time gasoline from the topping still was run
to a finished product and then treated with acid. We lost
considerable gasoline in the process. I suggested we
leave some heavy ends in the gasoline then dump in
acid, taking the sulphur down with the heavy ends. Then
the gasoline is run through the topping still again to
take out the finished gasoline, the heavy ends going into
other fractions,’ he explained.

Construction was progressing on schedule but the
finish date was months off. Bob spent most of his days
supervising installations. It was on such a day that the
new refinery’s combination of "’'green men and green
equipment” produced a startling incident in young Bob’s
life. "I can remember it like it was yesterday,” he re-
called. "I was standing in the switch room looking at
the water. Whooom! An explosion rocked the building.
A cloud of smoke enveloped the topping still. It had
burst its seams.

"I raced toward the scene, hoppin’ across kegs of
litharge. Wouldn’t you know that one of those 400-
pound kegs had to be an empty! Over I flopped. Some-
thing stove in my chest and I was sure all my ribs were
broken. When I got to my feet I saw a young fellow
named Cowherd from Cowherd, Kentucky, racing from
the topping still toward the dispensary. He was all cov-
ered with hot, searing oil.

Den solamente algun palabra, un pionero di Lago, Bob Heinze, a des-
cribi su promer contribucion grandi cu hefe di Acid Plant den anjanan
anterior. Munstrando ingenuidad y un rikeza di recurso, e hoben Heinze
a laga comcdidad di bungalow No. 2 pa un permanencia voluntario di
dos siman den switch room. Tabata dianan di 24 ora di trabao, un tras
di otro, Hasta su cuminda a worde treci pe. ’’Pero de vez en cuando mi

Bob a coregi e idea foutivo aki bisando: "Mi a sweeten hopi gasoline
na Casper.’ En seguida el a habri un carga di lead y caustic cual a du-
ne’le e ingredientenan pa e doctor” solution.

"Mi a bisa e hefe cu sie presta mi dos pipefitters y duna mi dos hom-
ber nos por saca gasoline sweetened dentro di tres siman. Tur cos tabata

conscious on a dispensary cot and I
knew what I had to do. I went up

When I got back he had regained

emotion not tempered by the years.

As young Cowherd listened, his
taut face muscles telegraphing the
excruciating pain, Bob reverently
read the verses of the 23rd Psalm.
"Yea, though I walk through the

Two days later, despite all medical
care, the mortally injured Ken-
tuckian died.

Contact Plant Dedicated

On July 1, 1929, Lago’s No. 1 Con-
tact Plant was officially dedicated.
Original investment of the Acid
Plant was $360,000 U.S. Bob said
they were "making oil to beat the
band.” Designed to produce 80 tons
of acid daily, the plant was produc-
ing 120 tons. But sludge was piling
up and the refinery had to have acid.
"We finally got the acid separators
on stream. They separated acid of
45 per cent acidity from sludge. This
produced a very fluid acid oil which
we blended off with bunker C.”

"At first we used the so-called
batch method of separating. I told
the big boss, Tom Cook, that it was
no good. After two real messy
gasket failures they were ready to
buy my idea on continuous separa-
tion. It was the first time any re-
finery had successfully separated
sludge continuously. The process
functioned properly and Lago’s been
using it ever since,’ Bob added.

About the time Harold Humphreys
began his Lago career in 1930, the
acid concentrators were put into
operation. He is currently a process

foreman in the Acid Plant. Another
young fellow who shared No. 2 bun-
galow with Bob and seven others
was Bill Ewart, division superinten-
dent of Utilities.

Bob, a thinker as well as a planner
and organizer, introduced many re-
volutionary ideas in Acid Plant ope-
rations. And he was deeply aware
of proper safety precautions. He
even had the main road re-routed
from its Acid Plant location to its
present site past the Medical Center
to the Main Gate. "That happened
shortly after I arrived here. I saw
exposed tanks of acid oil in close pro-
ximity to the road and knew that a
spark from a car’s exhaust could
send the whole place up. So I just
told them the road would have to be
moved and that was that. But I did
shave $70,000 off Acid Plant build-
ing costs to help with the project,”
he remembered.

Retires In 1952

In 1952 Bob settled in Hammond,
Indiana, as a Lago annuitant. He
soon discovered he couldn't retire
from his life work. Listed in Who's
Who in America and many other
similar publications, he is currently
a vice-president with Submerged
Combustion in a research capacity.
His monument at Lago will always
be the Acid & Edeleanu installations,
vital to the operations of the com-
pany.

These extremely important Lago
plants are comprised of both the old
and new. The No. 1 Contact Plant is
the original installation in the Acid
Plant, only partially completed when
Bob Heinze arrived. By refinery
standards, Nos. i and 2 Edeleanu
Plants are relatively new. They went
on stream in 1938. No. 3 was com-
pleted two years ago.

plants, concentrators, separators,
precipitators, storage tanks, special
pipelines and a sulphur plant to
manufacture a continuous flow of
sulphuric acid. This acid is neces-
sary for alkylation and acid treating
operations. For many years, raw
sulphur was purchased from _ the
United States but a much better
sulphur product is now produced at
the Acid Plant at the rate of 58!/2
tons daily.

Acid treating with sulphuric acid
(H2S04) reduces sulphur in thermol
and catalytic cracked heavy gasoline |
components. It also reduces sulphur |
and improves the burning qualities !
of kerosenes. Sulphuric acid is used
in the alkylation process to upgrade
both octane and quality of aviation
gasoline components. After sulphur-
ic acid is returned to the Acid Plant
from alkylation and acid treating,
it is recovered in separators and
concentrators. Acid Plant precipita- |
tors electrically prevent acid vapor
from contaminating the atmosphere.

Edeleanu, a Romanian, introduced
the original solvent extraction pro-
cess to the oil industry. It upgraded
kerosenes produced from _ inferior
Romanian crudes, improving illu-
minating qualities of the important
European product. Edeleanu dis-
covered that the presence of aromat-
ics in the crude caused the kero-
senes to smoke. He proposed the use
of liquid SO2 to remove aromatics
which are highly soluble in the sul-
phur product.

Since Venezuelan crude has simi-
lar qualities of Romanian petroleum,
the Edeleanu process was introduced
at Lago to produce a high quality
kerosene for the world market.
Edeleanu treating also upgrades
diesel fuels by reducing sulphur con-
tent and raising cetane ratings.

Acid y Edeleanu

(Continua di pagina 5)

horible den bida hoben di Bob. "Mi
ta corda manera cu tabata ayera,”
el a bisa. "Mi tabata para den switch
room mirando pa lamar. Whooom!
Un explosion a sacudi e lugar. Un
nubia di huma a cubri e_ topping
still. El a rementa.

"Mi a corre bai pa e lugar bulando
for di un barril di lead pa otro, Ata
un di e barrilnan aki di 400 liber ta-
bata bashi! Mi a bolter over di dje.
Un cos a dal mi den mi pecho y mi
tabata segur cu tur mi ribchi a ki-
bra. Ora mi a lamta mi a mira un
hoben cu nos tabata yama Cowherd,

; pasobra el tabata bini di Cowherd,

Kentucky, ta corre for di e topping
till pa dispensario. El tabata tur
subri cu azeta cayente.

"Un vista ariba dje mientras e ta-
bata poni foi tino ariba un cot na
dispensario y mi tabata sabi caba
kiko mi mester a haci. Mi a bai mes
ora pa No. 2 bungalow y mi a coi
mi bijbel. Ora mi a yega el tabata
na tino atrobe. Tabata un vista tre-
mende,” Bob ta conta yen di emo-
cion cu no a mengua durante anja-
nan.



E Hoben a Muri

Mientras Cowherd tabata scucha,
su musculonan di cara expresando
su dolor grandi, Bob a leza cu reve-
rencia e versonan di Psalmo 23.
"Senjor, maske mi ta camna den
sombra di morto..."" Dos dia despues,
no obstante tur trato medico, e ho-
ben di Kentucky a muri.

Juli 1, 1929, No. 1 Contact Plant a
worde dedica oficialmente.

E inverticion original den Acid
Plant tabata $360,000. Bob a bisa cu
nan tabata traha azeta na cantidad.
Projecta pa produci 80 ton di acido
tur dia, e planta tabata produci 120
ton. Pero sludge tabata aumenta y e
refineria tabatin mester di acido.
"Por fin nos a pone e acid separa-
tors traha. Nan tabata separa acido
di 45 por ciento for di e sludge. Esa-
ki tabata produci un acid oil masha
fluido cual nos a mezcla cu bunker
a.”

"Promer nos tabata usa e metodo
di batch pa separa. Mi a bisa e hefe
grandi, Tom Cook, cu e no_ tabata
bon. Despues di dos berdadero trob-
bel cu gasket nan tabata cla pa pone
mi idea di separacion continuo tra-
ha. Tabata di promer vez cu un re-
fineria a separa sludge continua-
mente y cu exito. E proceso a traha
bon y Lago ta use’le desde e dia,”
Bob a bisa.

Mas of menos e tempo cu Harold
Humphreys a cuminza su carera na|
1930, e acid concentrators worde |
poni na operacion. Actualmente el
ta process foreman den Acid Plant.
Un otro hoben cu tabata biba den
No. 2 bungalow hunto cu Bob y siete
otro tabata Bill Ewart, awor division
superintendent di Utilities.

Bob, un pensador y tambe_ un|
planeador y organizador, a introduci |
hopi ideanan revolucionario den ope-
racionnan di Acid Plant. Y el tabata
profundamente huicioso den precau-
cionnan di seguridad. Hasta el a laga|
cambia e camina grandi for di ban-

a



da di Acid Plant pa su lugar actual
pasando dilanti Medical Center pa
Porta Mayor. ""Esey a socede poco
despues cu mi a yega aki. Mi a mira
tankinan di acid oil exponi cerea di
camina y un solo spark di exhaust
di un auto por a bula henter e lugar.
Y mi a bisa nan cu e camina ey mes-
ter a worde kita. Pero mi a kita
$70,000 for di e costonan di traha
Acid Plant pa yuda den e projecto,”
el ta recorda.

Na 1952 Bob a bai biba na Ham-
mond, Indiana, como pensionista di
Lago. Pronto el a descubri cu el no
por retira completamente. Enlista
den Who’s Who den publicacionnan
Americano y hopi otro similar,
tualmente el ta un vice-presidente
cu Submerged Combustion den un
capacidad di research. Su monumen-
to na Lago semper lo ta instalacion-
nan di Acid & Edeleanu, opreacion-
nan vital pa e compania.

E plantanan extremamente im-
portante di Lago ta inclui tanto lo
pasado y lo moderno. No. 1 Contact

ac-





Acid Plant, solamente mitar cla
tempo cu Bob Heinze a yega. Com-
para cu otro parti di refineria, Nos.

te nobo. Nan a cuminza traha na

Na Acid Plant ta tuma_ contact
plants, concentrators, separators,
precipitators, storage tanks, linja-



nan special di tubo y sulphur plant
pa fabrica un flujo continuo di acido
sulfurico. E acido aki ta e solvente
pa alkylacion y operacionnan di acid
treating. Durante hopi anja, sulfur
crudo tabata worde cumpra for di
Estados Unidos pero un_ producto
sulfurico mucho mehor, synthetico
ta worde produci awor na Acid Plant
na razon di 58-1!/2 mitar ton pa dia



Ta Reduci Sulphur

Acid treating cu acido
(H2S04) ta reduci sulfur
ponentenan di gasoline pisé gekraak
segun proceso thermol of catalytico.
Tambe e ta reduci y ta
calidadnan di kerosine. Acido sul-
furico ta worde debolbi pa Acid
Plant for di alkylation y acid treat-
ing, e ta worde recubri den separa-
tors y concentrators. Acid Plant pre-
cipitators electricamente ta preven
vapor for di contamina e at-
mosfera.

Edeleanu, un Rumano, a introduci
e proceso original di extraccion sol-

sulfurico
den com-



mehora e



acid





vente den industria di azeta. E ta
h calidad di kerosine traha di
crudo inferior di Rumenia, meho-

rando e calidadnan di iluminacion di
e producto Europeano, Edeleanu a
descubri cu e presencia di aromatico
den e crudo tabata causa kerosine
di huma. El a propone pa uso liqui-
do SO2 pa saca aromatico cu ta ma-
sha soluble den e producto di sulfur.

Como crudo di Venezuela tin cali-
dad similar manera esun di Rume-
nia, e proceso di Edeleanu a worde
introduci na Lago pa produci un ke-



rosine di alta calidad pa mercado
mundial. Edeleanu treating tambe

ta hiza calidad di combustibles die-
sel door di reduci e contenido di sul-
fur y aumenta e rating di cetane.

DISCUSSING LAGO publications with Public

Relations Manager B.

Teagle, right, is Jamshid Varzandeh, on training assignment from Iran.

DISCUTIENDO PUBLICACIONNAN di Lago cu Public Relations Man-

ager B. Teagle, banda drechi, ta Jamshid Varzandeh, kende a bini for
di Iran pa entrenamento.

Actualmente observando funcionnan no-tecnico di e operacionnan
extenso di Lago ta un hoben compacto, keto y kende ya a cuminza
perde algun cabei. Bisti netchi y conservativo, su cara serio y su per-
aenaian agradable ta testiga di un calmo interior cu ta un contraste
cu e desorden cu mucho vez ta worde asocia cu su pais y su parti di

mundo.

El ta Jamshid Varzandeh di Ah-
was, Iran. Sr. Varzandeh ta cum-
pliendo un encargo di entrenamento
for di su trabao como superinten-
dente di administracion di e opera-
cionnan di Ahwaz cu ta pertenece na
Iranian Oil and Exploration and
Producing Co., Ltd., un subsidiario
di e Consortio.

Cu declaracionnan cortico pero
claro dorné cu un acento suave, Sr.
Varzandeh a coregi cortésmente e
mal idea cu ta worde teni como ber-
dad door di hopi lectores di Occiden-
te cu Iran ta involvi den hopi di e
desorden na Mediterraneo Oriente of
Oriente Cercano. "No ta asina,” e
bishitante di Iran a bisa. E hendenan
y gobierno di Iran no ta na pleito cu
ideologianan politico of religioso di
su poblacion of di otro paisnan cer-
cano. E palabranan, bisé calmamen-
te, a duna veracidad na e declara-
cion y un vista den naturaleza di e
hendenan aki. Nan no a worde bis4
como defensa y ni tampoco pa fana-
tismo, pero calmo, sin emocacion y
cu orguyo door di un’ emisario in-
dustrial di un pais cu ta favoreci cu
un carinjo casi utopio.

E naturaleza carinjoso aki ta po-
sesion di como 18,000,000 hende di
e tribonan Bedouino di Kurds den e
Montafianan Zagros den oriente te e
politiconan y comerciantenan distin-
gui, bisti impecablemente di Tehe-
ran y Isfahan, capital di gobierno y
di tapijt, respectivamente. E pais pa
un gran parti ta Moslem — mescos
cu Sr. Varzandeh, pero e ta ofrece
tambe tolerancia di religion pa e
otro ramonan religioso di mundo.

Compatibilidad, un vez mas, ta so-
berano, oracion un derecho, y asina
ta cu den un pais Moslem ta para e
templonan, misa y moské di Judio,
Cristian, Bahai y Zoroastrian.

Politicamente, Iran ta mantene
constantemente un rol neutral. Ma-
yoria di e poblacion di Iran no ta
carga sympatia pa Gamel Abdel
Nasser y su Republica Arabe Unida.
Sr. Varzandeh ta bisa cu su com-
patriotanan ta ardentemente na fa-
bor di e hoben, energetico monar-
ca, Su Mahestad Mohammed Reza
Shah Pahlavi. No tin bloquenan
fuerte Comunista na Iran, pero e
tendencia politico aki semper ta pre-
sente. "Sobre todo,” Sr. Varzandeh
ta recorda, "Russia ta keda banda
di nord di nos.”

Paciente y Comprendible

Pero e paciente, comprendible na-
turaleza guid pa sabiduria di siglo,
preserva pa posteridad den e escrito-
nan filosofico di e sabionan influen-
te manera Omar Khayyam di Siglo
Diez, a haci Iranionan di awendia
personanan manera Sr. Varzandeh.
El tin un temperamento placentero,
liber di malicia of pensamento sos-
pechoso. Su manera gentil sin duda
tabatin relacion cu su seleccion di un
ofishi — y no tabata industria di pe-
troleo manera e ta awor via loke

cidente ta considera un ruta unico

trial, pero no "Jim,” manera el ta
conoci popularmente. El a bira un
homber di azeta pa medio di crianza
di bestia. Ta stranjo? No ta si bo co-
noce geografia di Zuidwest Iran.
Esaki ta e region di e refineria di
Abadan, Aki tambe hopi di e cam-
ponan produciente ta keda. E region
ta desierto; e ta na canto di Golfo
di Persia; e ta calor, of mehor bisd,
super calor. Lechi y otro producto-
nan ta scars den e lugarnan calor.
Hacendero of criadornan local di be-
stia no ta existi ey of ta traha ariba
un escala asina chikito cu nan pro-
duccion apenas ta yega pa nan mes.
Den e areanan aki di Cercano Orien-
te e companianan di azeta a yega cu
nan miles y miles di trahadornan —
Abadan pa tur su operacionnan tin
un grupo di 25,000. Con percura pa
cuminda pa e trahadornan aki pron-
to a bira un "do-it-yourself pro-
gram.” Segun Sr. Varzandeh, trans-
portacion di alimento tambe tabata
masha dificil, pero no imposible. Sr.
Varzandeh a sigui: A worde decidi
hopi anja pas4 pa establece crianza
di bestia y cultiva terreno pa agri-
cultura door di personal di e com-
pania. E companianan di azeta taba-
tin e medio pa mantene operacion-
nan grandi, cu, naturalmente, e
criador na escala chikito no tabatin.
Mi ta papia particularmente di cu-
minda pa e bestianan. Tur cuminda
mester a worde transportaé pa e ha-
cendanan. Y pa un cantidad grandi
di bestia cu por produci mas cu 600
pint di lechi diariamente manera
esun di nos, ta tuma un organizacion
grandi pa transporta e cuminda ne-
cesario. Criadornan nativo? Si, tin
den Zuidwest Iran, pero mi ta cal-
cula cu nan produccion ta mas of
menos 10 pa 15 pint di lechi pa dia.
Ta mucho seco y calor pa un perso-
na individual opera un empresa agri-
cultural ariba un base grandi.’

Pero esey ta strictamente e region
di Golfo di Persia na Iran, Sr. Var-
zandeh a splica. E promer vocacion
na Iran ta agricultura, y no azeta
of trahamento di tapijt. Ta pesey
Sr. Varzandeh a drenta Universidad
di Teheran, no mucho anja pasa, co-
mo un studiante di agricultura. Des-
pues di gradua el a bai Masjed So-
leyman, na pia di Seroenan di Za-
gros, como un experto di _horticul-
tura pa Anglo-Iranian Oil Co. Cua-
tro anja despues el a tuma over e
hacienda grandi di e compania y
como 2000 hectare di terra bao cul-
tivacion pafor di Ahwaz. Despues a
bini nacionalizacion di recursonan
natural di Iran na principio di e de-
cenia aki y National Iranian Oil Co.,
despues di tuma responsabilidad pa
e haciendanan, a decidi di cerra esun
di Ahwaz. Un otro, mas grandi, ta
worde manteni door di e Consortio

Cu cerramento di e hacienda, Sr.
Varzandeh a bai traha pa subsidia-
rio di e Consortio como personnel as-
sistant di e deputy general fields
manager den terrenonan di produc-



cion. El a bira superintendente ad-
ministrativo den region di Masjed
Soleyman, y poco promer cu su sa-
lida na November 1958 pa un entre-
namento di 12 luna, el a bira super-
intendente administrativo di e sec-
cion di Ahwaz.

Lago tabata e promer stop di Sr.
Varzandeh despues di un permanen-
cia di diez dia na New York. Aki el
a observa funcionnan di Industrial y
Public Relations Departments, Ge-
neral Services, Lago Police y Tech-
nical Service Departments. Mas of
menos mitar di Februari el lo sali
pa Venezuela y periodonan cortico
di entrenamento cu Creole y Gulf, y
despues el ta bolbe Estados Unidos
pa mira operacionnan di Humble na
Texas.

Papia Ingles

Sr. Varzandeh ta papia excelente
Ingles, un poco Frances cu el a sin-
ja na school, su idioma nativo di
Persia y tambe Turco. E ultimo idio-
ma aki el a sinja for di su mayor-
nan. Tur dos tabata Irano, y nan ta-
bata viaja hopi pa motibo di e ne-
goshi di e tata. Na un punto den ca-
rera di Sr. Varzandeh, el a establece
su mes na Istanbul, Turkia. Aki
"Jim" a nace y a biba e promer dos
anjanan di su bida. Mas despues el
a biba na Teheran, despues Ban-
dar-e Pahlavi na costa di Mar Cas-
pio, na unda tin excelente facilidad-
nan di recreacion na beach.

"Ta mas of menos algun ora di
careda for di Teheran pa e centro di
recreacion na Mar Caspio, y hopi
hendenan di negoshi ta pasa nan fin
di siman aya. Tambe tin algun ma-
ravilloso ressort di ski durante tem-
porada di invierno den Seroenan El-
burz, no mucho leuw for di Teheran.
"Nos Shah, cu ta un entusiaste afi-
cionado di ski, ta ski hopi aya," Sr.
Varzandeh a bisa.

El a conta di e excelente clima
na Teheran, su cuatro temporada, y
con e calendar di Iran ta basa ariba
e cuatro temporadanan. E promer

di e ultimo cuarto di Iran, of na cu-

Iran, Sr. Varzandeh a asegura, ta
un pais masha progresivo y moder-
no. E tin ciudadnan moderno, care-
tera moderno ariba cual ta cruza
autonan Americano, Aleman y In-
gles di ultimo estilo; e tin centronan
industrial creciendo, algun universi-

parti di leynan religioso den un epo-
ca cu hendenan no tabata kere den
liders, pero solamente den reglanan
di religion. Reglanan di religion ta-
bata e unico manera door di cual
hendenan por a worde conmovi pa
haci loke tabata bon pa nan.”

Sr. Varzandeh a nota cu hopi cos-
tumbernan y reglanan di religion no
ta worde observa mas na Iran. Ora
el a worde puntra con ta posible cu
leynan di religion ta worde kibra, el
a bisa cu nan no ta worde_ kibra,
pero cu unicamente nan ta worde re- |
vis4. E sabiduria di Mohammed a
visualiza e avance di sociedad y den
Koran ta para scirbi — Koran ta
Bijbel di Moslem — "Bo mester

Hopi siglonan largo Moslems ta-

bata reza promer cu solo sali, ora di

pues cu solo drenta y na ora di bai

esaki tabata pa tres motibo: bisa

el a haci ehercicio, loke hendenan di

Oracion

Oracion cinco vez pa dia ta un
ehemplo perfecto di un regla bieuw
di religion decreta pa e tempo y pa

Lago Holds NSC
October Lead

There's a good chance that La-
go may repeat its 1957 first place
safety honors and win first place
in the National Safety Council
for its 1958 safety performance.

The most recent report from
the National Safety Council
shows that Lago was in first

place at the end of October in its
safety competition with other
major petroleum companies. In
second place at that time was the
General Petroleum Corporation of
Los Angeles, California. As of
the end of October, Lago had a
frequency rate of 0.97 compared
to General Petroleum’s frequency
rate of 1.17. Lago’s safety record
improved to 0.90 at year’s end.

110 Curacao Students

Tour Lago

Three bus loads of students —

Jan. 17

110 boys, girls and teachers from

Peter Stuyvesant School in Curacao — arrived at Lago Jan. 17 for a
tour of the refinery's facilities. The youthful group had arrived in Aru-
ba the day before aboard the Dutch destroyer Van Speyk for a three-
day visit which also included an island tour and several sports contests.

From their quarters at Van Gijns,
students and teachers proceeded by
bus on a route that took them past
the Acid & Edeleanu plants and up
the main refinery road to the Ad-
ministration Building. There they
were greeted by B. Teagle, public
relations manager, who, in the course
of extending Lago’s official greeting
to the Peter Stuyvesant students
gathered in the main conference
room, told the group that "one of
your most important challenges in
life will be putting into use in later
life the principles you are learning
now in school.”

The group of 110 students was
split into two tour sections, half go-
ing to the laboratories while the
other visited the Cracking Plant.

When these tours were concluded,
the groups switched locations and
the laboratory group moved on to
the Cracking Plant.

Laboratory tour leaders were F.
H. Himes, H. S. Goodwin and V. F. C.
Gomez. When bothe groups had
toured the laboratories and Crack-
ing Plant they were taken to the
Reception Center for refreshments
and souvenirs of their Lago visit.
That evening the Curacao students
were guests at a Lago Heights dance
held in their honor.

The night before the Lago tour,
Peter Stuyvesant basketball teams
competed against teams from Lago
High School.

From Iran To Aruba

Near East Oil Executive
Observing Lago Operations

Currently observing non-technical functions of Lago’s vast opera-
tions is a compact, slightly balding, taciturn young man. Neatly and
conservatively dressed, his benign countenance and gracious bearing
suggest innermost serenity that belies the turmoil often associated
with his people and his part of the world.

He is Jamshid Varzandeh of Ah-
waz, Iran. Mr. Varzandeh is on a
training assignment from his duties
as administrative superintendent of
the Ahwaz operations of the Iranian
Oil Exploration and Producing Co.,
Ltd., a subsidiary of the Consortium.

In clearly-phrased, succinct state-
ments seasoned with a soft accent,
Mr. Varzandeh very politely cor-
rected the fallacy held as truth by
many Western readers that Iran is
involved in frequent Eastern Medi-
terranean or Near East turmoil.
"This is not so,” says Lago’s Iranian
visitor, The people and government
of Iran find no quarrel with political
or religious ideologies of its popula-
tion or those of surrounding coun-
tries. The words, softly spoken, gave
veracity to the premise and insight
to the nature of these people. They
were spoken not in smug defense
nor rising flippancy, but quietly,
unemotionally and with pride by an
industrial emissary of a country
favored with utopian congeniality.

This kindred fellowship flows
through some 18,000,000 people from
the tribal, Bedouin-like Kurds of the



Zagros Mountains in the west to

the distinguished, nattily-dressed
politicos and merchants of Teheran
and Isfahan, government and. rug
capitals, respectively. The country
is largely Moslem — as is Mr. Var-
zandeh, but it also affords religious
tolerance for a generous mixture of
the world’s great religious. Compa-
tibility, again, is sovereign, prayer
a right, and so it is that in a Mos-
lem country stand the temples,
churches and mosques of Jew,
Christian, Bahai and Zoroastrian.

Politically, Iran steadfastly main-
tains a neutral role. The bulk of
Iran's population holds no sympathy
for Gamel Abdel Nasser and _ his
United Arab Republic. Mr. Varzan-
deh claims his compatriots to be
strongly in support of their youth-
ful, energetic monarch, His Majesty
Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi.
There are no strong Communist
blocs in Iran, but this political tenet
is ever present. "After all,’’ remind-
ed Mr. Varzandeh, ''we are bordered
on the north by Russia.”

But the patient, understanding
nature guided by centuries-old wis-

Lago Wins 10th National

Safety

Courneil Award

Lago has been awarded its 10th Award of Honor by the National
Safety Council for its safety achievement recorded last year. The
company earned the safety honor for having passed the 3,000,000 man
hour mark in 1958 without a disabling injury. The consecutive man

hours were established from May
perfect 4,487,871 man hours were
worked.

Of the 10 safety honors Lago has
earned since receiving its first in
1951, eight have been awarded for
having passed the 3,000,000 man
hour requirement. In 1954 and 1957,
two awards were earned by the com-
pany for outstanding safety per-
formances for the entire year as
compared to other contestants in
Lago’s division.

In Group A Manufacturing divi-
sion under National Safety Council
listings, Lago established its all-
time record safety year in 1957.
From Dec. 8, 1956 through June 5,
1957, a total of 6,520,829 man hours
were worked without a disabling in-
jury. A 0.61 frequency rate was es-
tablished for the six-month period.
This means that there were just 0.61
disabling injuries for every 1,000,000
man hours worked—slightly more
than one such injury in a two-month
period.

The ten awards were won in the

THIS STRIKING industrial photograph captures all
the power and ingenuity that Mechanical Department
riggers must utilize on the job daily. Lifting this 52-
ton piece of equipment from the deck of a Lykes
freighter was considered one of the toughest rigging

25 through Oct. 6 when a safety-

years 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957
and 1958. The company scored three
times in 1954 and twice each in 1955
and 1957. Since 1951, a total of
36,000,000 man hours, enough to
keep Lago going day and night for
three solid years, were worked with-
out a disabling injury.

Though each award is _ presented
to the company fer its safety ar-
chives, it is in reality a_ tribute to
the thousands of Lago employees
whose safe work practices keep the
safety record clean.

M. Haider Named
Jersey Director

Election of Michael L. Haider,
president of International Petroleum
Company, Limited, as a director of
Standard Oil Company (N.J.) was
recently announced.

At the same time, Hines H. Baker,
who has spent more than 39 years
in the oil business, resigned as
a director and member of the Jer-
sey Standard executive committee.
Both actions were effective Jan. 1.

Mr. Haider has served since April
1, 1954 as a president of Interna-
tional Petroleum, a Jersey affiliate
whose principal activities are in Co-
lombia, Peru and Venezuela. A na-
tive of Mandan, North Dakota, and

a 1927 graduate of Stanford Uni-
versity, Mr. Haider has had exten-
sive experience in petroleum re-

search and production.

He was with Imperial Oil Limit-
ed, Jersey's affiliate in Canada, from
1946 to 1952 as head of the produc-
ing and exploration department, and
as a director and a vice president.
It was during this period when the

Jamshid Varzandeh

(Continued from page 1)
dom, some saved for posterity in the
philosophical writings of the coun-
try’s puissant sages like Omar
Khayyam of the Tenth Century, has
patterned Iranians of today as per-
sonified by Mr. Varzandeh. His is a
sanguine temperament, free of
malice or foreboding thought. His
gentle demeanor undoubtedly bore
direct relation to his choice of pro-

fession — and it wasn’t the oil busi-
ness as it is now via what most
Western oil men would consider a

devious and unique route. There are
those who become oil men
gineers, chemists, process workers,
tradesmen, accountants, industrial
relations men, but not Jim,” as he
is popularly known. He became an
oil man through animal husbandry.
Sound strange? It isn’t when the
geographics of Southwestern Iran
are known. This is the area of the
Abadan refinery. It is also where
many of the producing fields are
located. The area is desert; it is on
the Persian Gulf; it is hot, or, bet-
ter yet, it is hot hot. Milk and pro-
duce are in scant supply in arid lo-
cales, Native herders and farmers
either don’t exist or operate on a
scale so tiny their harvest hardly
tends the wants of their own. Into
these areas of the Near East went
the oil companies and their thou-
sands upon thousands of workers —
Abadan for all its operations has a
complement of over 25,000. How to
feed the workers quickly resolved
into a "do it yourself” program. Ac-
cording to Mr. Varzandeh, the lo-
gistics were such that transporta-
tion of needed nutriment was "ex-
tremely difficult, but not necessarily
impossible.” Mr. Varzandeh conti-

as en-

nued: "It was decided many years
ago to have dairy farms and areas
of ground under cultivation worked
by employees of the oil company for
oil company personnel. The oil com-
panies had the means to maintain
large-scale farm operations, which,
of course, the native herder did not.
I speak specifically of feed for the
dairy herd. All feed had to be trans-
ported to the farms. And for a large
herd capable of producing upwards
of 600 pints of milk daily as ours
did, it takes a sizable organization
to transport the required feed.
Native herders? Yes, they do exist
in Southwest Iran, but their maxi-
mum production I would’ estimate
at about 10 to 15 pints of milk daily.
Tt is just too dry and hot for an in-
dividual to operate a large scale
agricultural venture.”

But that is strictly the
Gulf area of Iran, Mr.
pointed out. Foremost vocation in
Iran is agriculture, and not oil or
rug making. That is why Mr. Var-
zandeh entered Teheran University,
not too many years ago, as an agri-
cultural student. Upon graduation
he went to Masjed Soleyman, in the
Zagros Mountain foothills, as a hor-
ticultural expert for the Anglo-
Iranian Oil Co. Four years later he
took over the company’s dairy farm
and some 2000 hectares under culti-
vation outside Ahwaz. Then came
the nationalization of Iranian natu-
ral resources early this decade and
the National Iranian Oil Co., after
assuming responsibility of the farms,
decided to close the Ahwaz opera-
tions. Another, still larger, is main-
tained by the Consortium in Aba-
dan.

With the farm dissolution,

| Varzandeh went to work for the
Consortium subsidiary as personnel
assistant to the deputy general
fields manager in producing areas.
He next became administrative su-
perintendent in the Masjed Soley-
man area, and prior to the Novem-
ber, 1958 start of his 12-month
training trip, he became administra-
tive superintendent of the Ahwaz

section.

Lago was Mr. Varzandeh’s first
stop after a ten-day stay in New
York, Here he observed the func-

tions of the Industrial and Public
Relations Departments, General Ser-
vices, Lago Police and Technical
Services Departments. About the
middle of February he will leave for
Venezuela and short training stints
with Creole and Gulf, then back to
the United States to observe Hum-
ble’s operations in Texas.

Mr. Varzandeh speaks’ excellent
English, some French which he
learned during early school years,
his native Persian tongue and also
Turkish. The latter language he ac-
quired from his parents. Both
Iranians, they traveled quite exten-
sively because of his father’s busi-
ness. At one point in the elder Mr.
Varzandeh’s career, he settled in
Istanbul, Turkey. It was here Jim”
was born and lived the first two
years of his life. He later lived in
Teheran, then Bandar-e Pahlavi on
the coast of the Caspian Sea, much
of which provides excellent beach
and resort facilities.

"In fact, it is just a few hours
drive from Teheran to the Caspian
resorts, and many business people
spend the weekends there. There
are also some wonderful ski resorts
open during the winter season in
the Elburz Mountains, not too far
out of Teheran. Our Shah, who is

of his skiing there,’’ Mr. Varzandeh
explained.

He told of the excellent climate in
Teheran, its four seasons, and how
the Iranian calendar is based on the
four seasons. The first day of the
new year is the first day of spring,
March 21. The usual New Year's
Day of the Western world falls
shortly after the start of the Iranian
fourth quarter, or the winter sea-
son. The oil companies, however,
use the Gregorian calendar.

Iran, Mr. Varzandeh assured, is a
very progressive, modern country.
It has modern cities, modern high-
ways traversed by late-model United
States, German and British cars,
growing industrial centers, a num-
ber of universities specializing in
medical and agricultural courses
and prosperous rug and cloth cen-
ters. The day of the Iranian veiled
distaff face has all but become a
part of the history of Persia. "I saw

some when I was a boy, and you
might possibly see some _ today in

elderly folk who choose to cling to

older ways. But they are very
scarce, actually,” said he of his
people. "It was all part of religious

laws in an age when people believed
not in leaders, but only in the ways
of religion. Religious laws were the
only means by which people could
be made to do what was good for
them.”

Mr. Varzandeh noted that many
old customs and religious laws are
no longer observed in Iran. Asked
how religious laws could be broken,
he answered that they were not be-
ing broken, but merely revised. The
wisdom of Mohammed had foreseen
the advancement of society and his
devout for in the Koran — the Mos-
lem conterpart of the Bible — it is
written "You must adopt your child-
ren to the customs of the times.”

For centuries Moslems prayed five
times a day. They prayed before sun-
rise, at lunch time, before sunset,
after sunset and before retiring.
"In addition to acknowledging the
faith, it accomplished three things:
telling of time, cleanliness and exer-
cise,” Mr. Varzandeh explained. "By
the sequence of prayers everyone
knew what time it was. People cen-
turies ago had no time pieces. A
Moslem must clean his face, hands
and feet every time he prays. So,
five times a day he had to clean
himself. Remember, these were days
when sanitation was unknown in the
Near East, so prayer aided cleanli-
ness. And, finally, a Moslem’s pray-
er consists of standing, kneeling and
bending so that when finished he had
exercised, something people of yes-
teryear hardly did. Prayer five
times a day is a perfect example of
an old religious law enacted for the
times and the people of those times.
Today, many Iranians do not hold
to the old laws of prayer. The same
is true in some instances in the use
of alcohol, pork, and observance of
fast month, Yes, there are liquor
stores in Iran,” added Mr. Varzandeh
with just a faint hint of a smile. Per-
sia, as the country was known years
ago, has been Moslem since its con-
version to Mohammedanism. Prior
to that time its people were follow-
ers of Zoroastrianism — some still
are — traditionally derived from
the prophet Zoroaster early in the
first millennium BC.

Naturally, Mr. Varzandeh had to
jot down a few characters of the
Persian alphabet. As his pen skip-
ped along from right to left leaving
behind neatly formed curly-cues,
dots and dashes, he said his alphabet
only had 32 characters and once
they are learned the remainder of
the language comes easy. Oh, yes!

Acid & Edeleanu
Vital to Lago

"I moved my bunk into the Treating Plant switch room and holed
up there for two weeks. We had to work ’round the clock and use
some pretty crude methods, but we managed to sweeten enough oil
to put Lago’s acid operations in business.”

In just a few words, Lago pioneer Bob Heinze had described his
first major contribution as Acid Plant head back in the early years.
Displaying ingenuity and resourcefulness, young Heinze had left the
"comfort” of No. 2 bungalow for a voluntary two-week confinement
in the switch room. It was a 24-hour day-to-day existence. Even his
meals were brought in. "But I did get out for an occasional bath,”
he quipped to the interviewer.

When Bob Heinze arrived aboard the Paul Harwood in February,
1929, the Acid Plant was months from completion. Concrete founda-
tions had been poured for towers; the No. 1 Contact Plant was only
partially finished.

"Naturally, there was no sulphuric acid being produced so there
wasn’t much for me to do. I remember that the No. 1 topping still
was on stream and No. 2 was nearing completion,” he said.

Then Bob discovered the situation that led to his switch room ex-
perience. Unsweetened gasoline was being shipped to Louisiana
where it had to be unloaded, sweetened then reloaded and shipped
to Savannah, Georgia, for marketing. ’’I questioned this practice and
was told, ‘nobody around here knows how to sweeten it’.”

Bob corrected this faulty notion with: "I’ve sweetened plenty of
gasoline at Casper.’ He next uncovered a stock of litharge (lead) and
caustic which gave him ingredients for the "doctor’’ solution.

"I told the boss that if he’d lend me some pipefitters
and give me two men we could ship out sweetened gaso-
line in three weeks, Everything was hooked up to pump
in circles so we had to straighten out the lines before we
could do anything else,” he continued.

He got his two men—one had "seen a sweetening plant
once’”’ and the other was willing to learn. Unavailable at
the moment were E. Spitz, now shift foreman in Acid
& Edeleanu, and A. Schwarcz, now shift foreman in the
Cracking Plant, who helped start the No, 1 Contact
Plant with Bob and M. C. Bates. The men were in the
employ of Chemical Construction Co., Acid Plant con-
tractor, at the time Bob needed help.

Into the switch house on its dirt floor went Bob’s bunk
He ran the plant during the day shift, a’ second man
took over from 3 p.m. until midnight and the "expe-
rienced” man "who had once seen” worked the remain-
ing hours. "At least the man I got off the stills could
start and stop the pumps. The other guy woke me con-
tinually to get him out of a fix. But after a few days
things began to click and Lago was in the sweetening
business for good. In just three weeks we had sweetened
140,000 barrels of gasoline, enough to load two ships
for a direct run to Savannah.” Bob Heinze had tamed
the high sulphur crude.

Leaving his newly trained cadre to maintain the ope-
ration, Bob directed his energy toward his unfinished
Acid Plant. "I was real eager to get my plant on stream.
Up to that time gasoline from the topping still was run
to a finished product and then treated with acid. We lost
considerable gasoline in the process. I suggested we
leave some heavy ends in the gasoline then dump in
acid, taking the sulphur down with the heavy ends. Then
the gasoline is run through the topping still again to
take out the finished gasoline, the heavy ends going into
other fractions,’ he explained.

Construction was progressing on schedule but the
finish date was months off. Bob spent most of his days
supervising installations. It was on such a day that the
new refinery’s combination of "’'green men and green
equipment” produced a startling incident in young Bob’s
life. "I can remember it like it was yesterday,” he re-
called. "I was standing in the switch room looking at
the water. Whooom! An explosion rocked the building.
A cloud of smoke enveloped the topping still. It had
burst its seams.

"I raced toward the scene, hoppin’ across kegs of
litharge. Wouldn’t you know that one of those 400-
pound kegs had to be an empty! Over I flopped. Some-
thing stove in my chest and I was sure all my ribs were
broken. When I got to my feet I saw a young fellow
named Cowherd from Cowherd, Kentucky, racing from
the topping still toward the dispensary. He was all cov-
ered with hot, searing oil.

Acid y Edeleanu -
Vital pa Lago

Mi a trece un cama den switch room di Treating Plant y mia keda
posa ey den dos siman largo. Nos mester a traha 24 ora pa dia y usa
masha crudo, pero nos a logra sweeten bastante azeta pa pone Lago su
operacionnan cu acido traha.”

Den solamente algun palabra, un pionero di Lago, Bob Heinze, a des-
cribi su promer contribucion grandi cu hefe di Acid Plant den anjanan
anterior. Munstrando ingenuidad y un rikeza di recurso, e hoben Heinze
a laga comcdidad di bungalow No. 2 pa un permanencia voluntario di
dos siman den switch room. Tabata dianan di 24 ora di trabao, un tras
di otro, Hasta su cuminda a worde treci pe. ’’Pero de vez en cuando mi
tabata sali pa banja,” el a bisa chanzando.

Tempo cu Bob Heinze a yega abordo di Paul Harwood na Februari
1929, Acid Plant tabata falta algun luna pa bin cla. Fundeshi di con-
creto a worde basha pa towers; No. 1 Contact Plant tabata solamente
mitar cla.

”Naturalmente, e tempo ainda no tabata produci acido sulfurico, asina
ta cu no tabatin mucho pa mi haci. Mi ta corda cu No. 1 topping still
tabata funcionando y No. 2 tabata biniendo cla,” el a bisa.

E ora Bob a descubri e situacion cu a cause’le su permanencia den
switch room. Gasoline tabata worde barca pa Louisiana sin sweetening.
Aya ta desembarke’le, sweeten e y barke’le pa Savannah, Georgia, pa
bende. "Mi a puntra pakiko esaki ta socede y nan a bisa mi cu ’ningun
hende aki sabi con ta sweeten e’.”

Bob a coregi e idea foutivo aki bisando: "Mi a sweeten hopi gasoline
na Casper.’ En seguida el a habri un carga di lead y caustic cual a du-
ne’le e ingredientenan pa e doctor” solution.

"Mi a bisa e hefe cu sie presta mi dos pipefitters y duna mi dos hom-
ber nos por saca gasoline sweetened dentro di tres siman. Tur cos tabata
conecté pa pomp den cirkel asina cu nos mester a straight e lineanan
promer cu nos por a haci cualkier otro cos,” el a sigui.

El a haya su dos hombernan — un a "yega
di mira un sweetening plant’ y e otro tabatin
gana di sinja. E tempo ainda E. Spitz, awor
shift foreman den Acid & Edeleanu, y A.
Schwarez, awor shift foreman den Cracking

hunto cu Bob y M. C. Bates, no tabata tey. E
hombernan aki tabata traha pa Chemical Con-
struction Co., e contratista cu a traha Acid

Ariba e vloer di klei den switch house Bob
a pone su cama. El tabata corre e planta den
dia, di dos homber tabata tuma over for di 3
p-m. te mei anochi y esun di "experiencia’” cu
a yega di mira tabata traha te mainta. A lo
menos e homber cu mi a trece di stills por a

lamta mi henter anochi pa sake’le for di den
trouble. Pero despues di algun dia cos a cumin-
za anda y Lago tabata den negoshi di sweeten-
ing. Den tres siman nos a sweeten 140,000 bar-
ril di gasoline, bastante pa carga dos bapor pa
un viaje directo pa Savannah.” Bob Heinze a
manza e high sulphur crude.

Lagando su kader bon entrené pa mantene e
operacion, Bob a dirigi su energia na Acid
Plant cu no tabata cla. "Mi tabata berdadera-
mente ansioso pa hiza e planta. Te tempo gaso-
line for di topping still tabata worde poni cla
y despues trata cu acido. Nos tabata perde
hopi gasoline den e proceso aki. Mi a sugeri
pa nos laga algun heavy ends den e gasoline y
despues dump e den acido, sacando e sulfur
hunto cu e heavy ends. Anto e gasoline ta wor-
de pasa door di e topping still atrobe pa saca e
gasoline puro, e heavy ends ta worde mandé
pa otro fraccion,” el a splica.

bata pasa mayor parti di su dia ta check e in-

"One look at him as he lay un-
conscious on a dispensary cot and I
knew what I had to do. I went up
to No, 2 bungalow and got my Bible.
When I got back he had regained
consciousness, He was a_ pitiful

emotion not tempered by the years.

As young Cowherd listened, his
taut face muscles telegraphing the
excruciating pain, Bob reverently
read the verses of the 23rd Psalm.

Two days later, despite all medical
care, the mortally injured Ken-
tuckian died.

Contact Plant Dedicated

On July 1, 1929, Lago’s No. 1 Con-
tact Plant was officially dedicated.
Original investment of the Acid
Plant was $360,000 U.S. Bob said
they were "making oil to beat the
band.” Designed to produce 80 tons
of acid daily, the plant was produc-
ing 120 tons. But sludge was piling
up and the refinery had to have acid.
"We finally got the acid separators
on stream. They separated acid of
45 per cent acidity from sludge. This
produced a very fluid acid oil which
we blended off with bunker C.”

"At first we used the so-called
batch method of separating. I told
the big boss, Tom Cook, that it was
no good. After two real messy
gasket failures they were ready to
buy my idea on continuous separa-
tion. It was the first time any re-
finery had successfully separated

functioned properly and Lago’s been
using it ever since,’ Bob added.

About the time Harold Humphreys
began his Lago career in 1930, the
acid concentrators were put into
operation. He is currently a process

foreman in the Acid Plant. Another
young fellow who shared No. 2 bun-
galow with Bob and seven others
was Bill Ewart, division superinten-
dent of Utilities.

Bob, a thinker as well as a planner
and organizer, introduced many re-
volutionary ideas in Acid Plant ope-
rations. And he was deeply aware
of proper safety precautions. He
even had the main road re-routed
from its Acid Plant location to its
present site past the Medical Center
to the Main Gate. "That happened
shortly after I arrived here. I saw
exposed tanks of acid oil in close pro-
ximity to the road and knew that a
spark from a car’s exhaust could
send the whole place up. So I just
told them the road would have to be
moved and that was that. But I did
shave $70,000 off Acid Plant build-
ing costs to help with the project,”
he remembered.

Retires In 1952

In 1952 Bob settled in Hammond,
Indiana, as a Lago annuitant. He
soon discovered he couldn't retire
from his life work. Listed in Who's
Who in America and many other
similar publications, he is currently
a vice-president with Submerged
Combustion in a research capacity.
His monument at Lago will always
be the Acid & Edeleanu installations,
vital to the operations of the com-
pany.

These extremely important Lago
plants are comprised of both the old
and new. The No. 1 Contact Plant is
the original installation in the Acid
Plant, only partially completed when
Bob Heinze arrived. By refinery
standards, Nos. i and 2 Edeleanu
Plants are relatively new. They went
on stream in 1938. No. 3 was com-
pleted two years ago.

At the Acid Plant it takes contact

Small Colleges
Get Big Share
Of Esso Grants

A large part of the 350 grants
made to educational institutions by
the Esso Education Foundation for
the academic year 1958—59 went to
liberal arts colleges, with continued
support for technical institutions as
in the past, Eugene Holman, chair-
man, announced recently.

A total of $1,423,000 has been
granted to colleges and institutions
under this year's program, bringing
to about $5,500,000 the grants made
by the Esso Education Foundation
in its four-year existence to privat-
ely-supported colleges and universi-
ties in the United States.

The Foundation was_ established
by Standard Oil Company (N.J.) in
1955.



plants, concentrators, separators,
precipitators, storage tanks, special
pipelines and a sulphur plant to
manufacture a continuous flow of
sulphuric acid. This acid is neces-
sary for alkylation and acid treating
operations. For many years, raw
sulphur was purchased from _ the
United States but a much better
sulphur product is now produced at
the Acid Plant at the rate of 58!/2
tons daily.

Acid treating with sulphuric acid
(H2S04) reduces sulphur in thermol
and catalytic cracked heavy gasoline |
components. It also reduces sulphur |
and improves the burning qualities !
of kerosenes. Sulphuric acid is used
in the alkylation process to upgrade
both octane and quality of aviation
gasoline components. After sulphur-
ic acid is returned to the Acid Plant
from alkylation and acid treating,
it is recovered in separators and
concentrators. Acid Plant precipita- |
tors electrically prevent acid vapor
from contaminating the atmosphere.

Edeleanu, a Romanian, introduced
the original solvent extraction pro-
cess to the oil industry. It upgraded
kerosenes produced from _ inferior
Romanian crudes, improving illu-
minating qualities of the important
European product. Edeleanu dis-
covered that the presence of aromat-
ics in the crude caused the kero-
senes to smoke. He proposed the use
of liquid SO2 to remove aromatics
which are highly soluble in the sul-
phur product.

Since Venezuelan crude has simi-
lar qualities of Romanian petroleum,
the Edeleanu process was introduced
at Lago to produce a high quality
kerosene for the world market.
Edeleanu treating also upgrades
diesel fuels by reducing sulphur con-
tent and raising cetane ratings.

horible den bida hoben di Bob. "Mi
ta corda manera cu tabata ayera,”
el a bisa. "Mi tabata para den switch
room mirando pa lamar. Whooom!
Un explosion a sacudi e lugar. Un
nubia di huma a cubri e_ topping
still. El a rementa.

"Mi a corre bai pa e lugar bulando
for di un barril di lead pa otro, Ata
un di e barrilnan aki di 400 liber ta-
bata bashi! Mi a bolter over di dje.
Un cos a dal mi den mi pecho y mi
tabata segur cu tur mi ribchi a ki-
bra. Ora mi a lamta mi a mira un
hoben cu nos tabata yama Cowherd,

; pasobra el tabata bini di Cowherd,

Kentucky, ta corre for di e topping
till pa dispensario. El tabata tur
subri cu azeta cayente.

"Un vista ariba dje mientras e ta-
bata poni foi tino ariba un cot na
dispensario y mi tabata sabi caba
kiko mi mester a haci. Mi a bai mes
ora pa No. 2 bungalow y mi a coi
mi bijbel. Ora mi a yega el tabata
na tino atrobe. Tabata un vista tre-
mende,” Bob ta conta yen di emo-
cion cu no a mengua durante anja-
nan.



E Hoben a Muri

Mientras Cowherd tabata scucha,
su musculonan di cara expresando
su dolor grandi, Bob a leza cu reve-
rencia e versonan di Psalmo 23.
"Senjor, maske mi ta camna den
sombra di morto..."" Dos dia despues,
no obstante tur trato medico, e ho-
ben di Kentucky a muri.

Juli 1, 1929, No. 1 Contact Plant a
worde dedica oficialmente.

E inverticion original den Acid
Plant tabata $360,000. Bob a bisa cu
nan tabata traha azeta na cantidad.
Projecta pa produci 80 ton di acido
tur dia, e planta tabata produci 120
ton. Pero sludge tabata aumenta y e
refineria tabatin mester di acido.
"Por fin nos a pone e acid separa-
tors traha. Nan tabata separa acido
di 45 por ciento for di e sludge. Esa-
ki tabata produci un acid oil masha
fluido cual nos a mezcla cu bunker
a.”

"Promer nos tabata usa e metodo
di batch pa separa. Mi a bisa e hefe
grandi, Tom Cook, cu e no_ tabata
bon. Despues di dos berdadero trob-
bel cu gasket nan tabata cla pa pone
mi idea di separacion continuo tra-
ha. Tabata di promer vez cu un re-
fineria a separa sludge continua-
mente y cu exito. E proceso a traha
bon y Lago ta use’le desde e dia,”
Bob a bisa.

Mas of menos e tempo cu Harold
Humphreys a cuminza su carera na|
1930, e acid concentrators worde |
poni na operacion. Actualmente el
ta process foreman den Acid Plant.
Un otro hoben cu tabata biba den
No. 2 bungalow hunto cu Bob y siete
otro tabata Bill Ewart, awor division
superintendent di Utilities.

Bob, un pensador y tambe_ un|
planeador y organizador, a introduci |
hopi ideanan revolucionario den ope-
racionnan di Acid Plant. Y el tabata
profundamente huicioso den precau-
cionnan di seguridad. Hasta el a laga|
cambia e camina grandi for di ban-

a



da di Acid Plant pa su lugar actual
pasando dilanti Medical Center pa
Porta Mayor. ""Esey a socede poco
despues cu mi a yega aki. Mi a mira
tankinan di acid oil exponi cerea di
camina y un solo spark di exhaust
di un auto por a bula henter e lugar.
Y mi a bisa nan cu e camina ey mes-
ter a worde kita. Pero mi a kita
$70,000 for di e costonan di traha
Acid Plant pa yuda den e projecto,”
el ta recorda.

Na 1952 Bob a bai biba na Ham-
mond, Indiana, como pensionista di
Lago. Pronto el a descubri cu el no
por retira completamente. Enlista
den Who’s Who den publicacionnan
Americano y hopi otro similar,
tualmente el ta un vice-presidente
cu Submerged Combustion den un
capacidad di research. Su monumen-
to na Lago semper lo ta instalacion-

do SO2 pa saca aromatico cu ta ma-
sha soluble den e producto di sulfur.

Como crudo di Venezuela tin cali-
dad similar manera esun di Rume-

teams Jan. 17. Action on the Seroe Colorado courts saw the Curacao students lose the girls’
contest. Their boys’ team vindicated the defeat with a victory over the Lago High School



Compatibilidad, un vez mas, ta so-
berano, oracion un derecho, y asina
ta cu den un pais Moslem ta para e
templonan, misa y moské di Judio,
Cristian, Bahai y Zoroastrian.

Politicamente, Iran ta mantene
constantemente un rol neutral. Ma-
yoria di e poblacion di Iran no ta
carga sympatia pa Gamel Abdel
Nasser y su Republica Arabe Unida.
Sr. Varzandeh ta bisa cu su com-
patriotanan ta ardentemente na fa-
bor di e hoben, energetico monar-
ca, Su Mahestad Mohammed Reza
Shah Pahlavi. No tin bloquenan
fuerte Comunista na Iran, pero e
tendencia politico aki semper ta pre-
sente. "Sobre todo,” Sr. Varzandeh
ta recorda, "Russia ta keda banda
di nord di nos.”

Paciente y Comprendible

Pero e paciente, comprendible na-
turaleza guid pa sabiduria di siglo,
preserva pa posteridad den e escrito-
nan filosofico di e sabionan influen-
te manera Omar Khayyam di Siglo
Diez, a haci Iranionan di awendia
personanan manera Sr. Varzandeh.
El tin un temperamento placentero,
liber di malicia of pensamento sos-
pechoso. Su manera gentil sin duda
tabatin relacion cu su seleccion di un
ofishi — y no tabata industria di pe-
troleo manera e ta awor via loke
hopi expertonan di petroleo den Oc-
cidente ta considera un ruta unico
y yen di deviacion. Tin esnan cu ta
bira experto di azeta siendo_ engi-
niero, quimico, trahadornan den
stills, hendenan di ofishi, auditor, re-
presentantenan di relaciones indus-

trial, pero no "Jim,” manera el ta
conoci popularmente. El a bira un
homber di azeta pa medio di crianza
di bestia. Ta stranjo? No ta si bo co-
noce geografia di Zuidwest Iran.
Esaki ta e region di e refineria di
Abadan, Aki tambe hopi di e cam-
ponan produciente ta keda. E region
ta desierto; e ta na canto di Golfo
di Persia; e ta calor, of mehor bisd,
super calor. Lechi y otro producto-
nan ta scars den e lugarnan calor.
Hacendero of criadornan local di be-
stia no ta existi ey of ta traha ariba
un escala asina chikito cu nan pro-
duccion apenas ta yega pa nan mes.
Den e areanan aki di Cercano Orien-
te e companianan di azeta a yega cu
nan miles y miles di trahadornan —
Abadan pa tur su operacionnan tin
un grupo di 25,000. Con percura pa
cuminda pa e trahadornan aki pron-
to a bira un "do-it-yourself pro-
gram.” Segun Sr. Varzandeh, trans-
portacion di alimento tambe tabata
masha dificil, pero no imposible. Sr.
Varzandeh a sigui: A worde decidi
hopi anja pas4 pa establece crianza
di bestia y cultiva terreno pa agri-
cultura door di personal di e com-
pania. E companianan di azeta taba-
tin e medio pa mantene operacion-
nan grandi, cu, naturalmente, e
criador na escala chikito no tabatin.
Mi ta papia particularmente di cu-
minda pa e bestianan. Tur cuminda
mester a worde transportaé pa e ha-
cendanan. Y pa un cantidad grandi
di bestia cu por produci mas cu 600
pint di lechi diariamente manera
esun di nos, ta tuma un organizacion
grandi pa transporta e cuminda ne-
cesario. Criadornan nativo? Si, tin
den Zuidwest Iran, pero mi ta cal-
cula cu nan produccion ta mas of
menos 10 pa 15 pint di lechi pa dia.
Ta mucho seco y calor pa un perso-
na individual opera un empresa agri-
cultural ariba un base grandi.’

Pero esey ta strictamente e region
di Golfo di Persia na Iran, Sr. Var-
zandeh a splica. E promer vocacion
na Iran ta agricultura, y no azeta
of trahamento di tapijt. Ta pesey
Sr. Varzandeh a drenta Universidad
di Teheran, no mucho anja pasa, co-
mo un studiante di agricultura. Des-
pues di gradua el a bai Masjed So-
leyman, na pia di Seroenan di Za-
gros, como un experto di _horticul-
tura pa Anglo-Iranian Oil Co. Cua-
tro anja despues el a tuma over e
hacienda grandi di e compania y
como 2000 hectare di terra bao cul-
tivacion pafor di Ahwaz. Despues a
bini nacionalizacion di recursonan
natural di Iran na principio di e de-
cenia aki y National Iranian Oil Co.,
despues di tuma responsabilidad pa
e haciendanan, a decidi di cerra esun
di Ahwaz. Un otro, mas grandi, ta
worde manteni door di e Consortio
na Abadan.

Cu cerramento di e hacienda, Sr.
Varzandeh a bai traha pa subsidia-
rio di e Consortio como personnel as-
sistant di e deputy general fields
manager den terrenonan di produc-



cion. El a bira superintendente ad-
ministrativo den region di Masjed
Soleyman, y poco promer cu su sa-
lida na November 1958 pa un entre-
namento di 12 luna, el a bira super-
intendente administrativo di e sec-
cion di Ahwaz.

Lago tabata e promer stop di Sr.
Varzandeh despues di un permanen-
cia di diez dia na New York. Aki el
a observa funcionnan di Industrial y
Public Relations Departments, Ge-
neral Services, Lago Police y Tech-
nical Service Departments. Mas of
menos mitar di Februari el lo sali
pa Venezuela y periodonan cortico
di entrenamento cu Creole y Gulf, y
despues el ta bolbe Estados Unidos
pa mira operacionnan di Humble na
Texas.

Papia Ingles

Sr. Varzandeh ta papia excelente
Ingles, un poco Frances cu el a sin-
ja na school, su idioma nativo di
Persia y tambe Turco. E ultimo idio-
ma aki el a sinja for di su mayor-
nan. Tur dos tabata Irano, y nan ta-
bata viaja hopi pa motibo di e ne-
goshi di e tata. Na un punto den ca-
rera di Sr. Varzandeh, el a establece
su mes na Istanbul, Turkia. Aki
"Jim" a nace y a biba e promer dos
anjanan di su bida. Mas despues el
a biba na Teheran, despues Ban-
dar-e Pahlavi na costa di Mar Cas-
pio, na unda tin excelente facilidad-
nan di recreacion na beach.

"Ta mas of menos algun ora di
careda for di Teheran pa e centro di
recreacion na Mar Caspio, y hopi
hendenan di negoshi ta pasa nan fin
di siman aya. Tambe tin algun ma-
ravilloso ressort di ski durante tem-
porada di invierno den Seroenan El-
burz, no mucho leuw for di Teheran.
"Nos Shah, cu ta un entusiaste afi-
cionado di ski, ta ski hopi aya," Sr.
Varzandeh a bisa.

El a conta di e excelente clima
na Teheran, su cuatro temporada, y
con e calendar di Iran ta basa ariba
e cuatro temporadanan. E promer
dia di anja nobo ta e promer dia di
primavera, Maart 21. E customario
Anja Nobo di mundo Occidental ta
cai poco despues di cuminzamento
di e ultimo cuarto di Iran, of na cu-
minzamento di invierno. E compa-
nianan di azeta, sinembargo, ta usa
e calendario Gregoriano.

Iran, Sr. Varzandeh a asegura, ta
un pais masha progresivo y moder-
no. E tin ciudadnan moderno, care-
tera moderno ariba cual ta cruza
autonan Americano, Aleman y In-
gles di ultimo estilo; e tin centronan
industrial creciendo, algun universi-
dad cu ta specializa den cursonan
medico y agricultural y prospero
centronan di tapijt y otro telanan. E
tempo cu muhernan tabata_ cubri
cara cu velo casi ta pertenece na
historia di Persia. "Mi a yega di
mira algun tempo mi tabata mucha,
y posiblemente bo por mira algun
hende bieuw awor cu no kier laga
costumber bai. Pero nan ta masha
scars,” el a bisa. Tur esaki tabata

High School



January 31, 1959

parti di leynan religioso den un epo-
ca cu hendenan no tabata kere den
liders, pero solamente den reglanan
di religion. Reglanan di religion ta-
bata e unico manera door di cual
hendenan por a worde conmovi pa
haci loke tabata bon pa nan.”

Sr. Varzandeh a nota cu hopi cos-
tumbernan y reglanan di religion no
ta worde observa mas na Iran. Ora
el a worde puntra con ta posible cu
leynan di religion ta worde kibra, el
a bisa cu nan no ta worde_ kibra,
pero cu unicamente nan ta worde re- |
vis4. E sabiduria di Mohammed a
visualiza e avance di sociedad y den
Koran ta para scirbi — Koran ta
Bijbel di Moslem — "Bo mester
adopta bo yiunan segun costumber-
nan di tempo.”

Hopi siglonan largo Moslems ta-
bata reza cinco vez pa dia. Nan ta-
bata reza promer cu solo sali, ora di
come, promer cu solo drenta, des-
pues cu solo drenta y na ora di bai
drumi, "Ademas di un acto di fe,
esaki tabata pa tres motibo: bisa
ora, limpieza y ehercicio,” Sr. Var-
zandeh a splica. "Door di e sequen-
cia di oracion tur hende sabi ki ora
ta. Siglonan pasa hendenan no taba-
tin oloshi. Un Moslem mester limpia
su cara, man y pia cada vez
reza. Corda bon, e tempo ey sanita-
cion tabata desconoci den Oriente
Cercano, y pesey oracion tabata tre-
ce limpieza. Y, por ultimo un oracion
di Moslem ta consisti di para, hinca
rudia y buig asina cu ora el bini cla
el a haci ehercicio, loke hendenan di
anteajano no tabata haci.

Oracion

Oracion cinco vez pa dia ta un
ehemplo perfecto di un regla bieuw
di religion decreta pa e tempo y pa
hendenan di e tempo. Awendia, ho-
pi Iranio no ta tene na _ reglanan
bieuw di oracion. Mescos ta berdad
tambe den algun caso den uso di
alcohol, carni di porco, y observa-
cion di luna di cuaresma. Si, tin
tienda di bebida na Iran,” Sr. Var-
zandeh a bisa cu un sonrisa liviano.
Persia, manera e pais tabata conoci
hopi anjanan pasa, tabdta Moslem
desde su conversion pa ‘ Mohamme-
danismo.

In just a few words Lago pioneer Bob Heinze had described his phreys ta emplea den Acid Plan
first major contribution as Acid Plant head back in the early years
Displaying ingenuity and resourcefulness young Heinze had left the
comfort of No 2 bungalow for a voluntary two week confinement
in the switch room It was a 24 hour day-to-day existence Even his
meals were brought in But I did get out for an occasional bath
he quipped to the interviewer
When Bob Heinze arrived aboard the Paul Harwood in February
1929 the Acid Plant was months from completion Concrete foundations
had been poured for towers the No 1 Contact Plant was only
partially finished
Naturally there was no sulphuric acid being produced so there
wasnt much for me to do I remember that the No 1 topping still
was on stream and No 2 was nearing completion he said
Then Bob discovered the situation that led to his switch room experience
Unsweetened gasoline was being shipped to Louisiana
where it had to be unloaded sweetened then reloaded and shipped
to Savannah Georgia for marketing I questioned this practice and
BUILT IN 1935 these precipitators prevent acid from entering the
was told nobody around here knows how to sweeten it
atmosphere Electrodes carrying 75000 volts separate acid which
Bob corrected this faulty notion with Ive sweetened plenty of
runs down stacks to be reclaimed
gasoline at Casper He next uncovered a stock of litharge lead and

Into the switch house on its dirt floor went Bobs bunk
He ran the plant during the day shift a second man
took over from 3 pm until midnight and the experienced
man who had once seen worked the remain
ing hours At least the man I got off the stills could
start and stop the pumps The other guy woke me continually
to get him out of a fix But after a few days
things began to click and Lago was in the sweetening
business for good In just three weeks we had sweetened
PARTIALLY FINISHED when Acid Plant pioneer Bob Heinze arrived at Lago in 140000 barrels of gasoline enough to load two ships
1929 was the No 1 Contact Plant above Much of its original equipment is still in for a direct run to Savannah Bob Heinze had tamed

the gasoline is run through the topping still again to
take out the finished gasoline the heavy ends going into
other fractions he explained
Construction was progressing on schedule but the
finish date was months off Bob spent most of his days
supervising installations It was on such a day that the kkH ffiL SiBru3lfw sPl
new refinerys combination of green men and green
equipment produced a startling incident in young Bobs
life I can remember it like it was yesterday he re
called I was standing in the switch room looking at
the water Whooom An explosion rocked the building
A cloud of smoke enveloped the topping still It had
burst its seams
I raced toward the scene hoppin across kegs of
litharge Wouldnt you know that one of those 400
pound kegs had to be an empty Over I flopped Some
thing stove in my chest and I was sure all my ribs were
broken When I got to my feet I saw a young fellow Fnrff i n iBttlMiiri !
