Principles Set for Lago

Representation Election
A preliminary set of election principles has been announced which
will govern the conduct and results of the forthcoming representation
election. Lago announced earlier that a new contract to succeed the
present one, which expires April 30, will not be bargained until an
election determines the representation preferred by eligible employees.

Employee Taken Color

Transparencies Sought

For 1962 Lago Calendar
Lago's 1962 calendar will again feature twelve employee-taken
photographs. The Public Relations Department will conduct a contest,
similar to the calendar contests that produced the appealing photo-
graphs of the 1959 and 1960 calendars, to select suitable color trans-
parencies. Employees who submit prize winning photographs will be
rewarded Fla. 100 for each effort.

Color transparencies of any size,
depicting any Aruba subject and
taken by Lago employees or an-
nuitants are eligible for the cash
prizes. The contest for twelve pho-
tographs is open now, and entries
are being accepted until May 27.
Calendar selections will be made
by members of the Public Relations
The rules laid down for the com-
petition are simple enough:
1. Only original full-color trans-
parencies will be considered. Do
not submit color negatives, hand-
colored prints or any printed or

in the calendar.
6. Employees of the Public Rela-
tions Department are not eligible to
enter the competition. The depart-
ment, however, reserves the right to
use staff-taken pictures in the ca-
lendar if there are not twelve entries
of sufficiently high caliber submitted.
Transparencies submitted will get
the best of care while being exam-
ined. Before mailing or delivering
pictures to the Public Relations De-
partment, photographers should be
sure their names and addresses are
clearly indicated.

College Student Summer

Training Starts June 26
Lago's summer training program for college students is scheduled
to commence June 26. The eight-week program will run through Aug.
13 and is designed as a work-experience program intended to help
students learn to work, obtain experience for future careers and orient
themselves to the business world. Since the summer trainee will not be

an employee of the company, he will
not receive wages nor will he be eli-
gible for benefits granted to em-
ployees. A student grant-in-aid of
Fls. 175 for each four-week period,
however, will be allowed. The pro-
gram is open only to sons and
daughters of residents of Aruba.
Parents do not have to be Lago em-
ployees in order for their children to
be eligible for the summer training

program. In addition, students destr-

ing to take this program must be
currently enrolled in a college or uni-
versity and have successfully com-
pleted the first year of college work.
Students or parents of students
desiring further information on this
program should contact the Training
Division of the Industrial Relations
Department m the Administration
Building where application blanks
may be obtained. Telephone queries
may be made by calling 3375.
Although the program is planned
primarily for students whose college
majors have practical application to
Lago operations, every effort will be
made to assign students who haven't
selected a major to departments
where work experience will be as
practical as possible.
Students enrolled in the program
will be required to follow all com-
pany rules and regulations. The com-
pany may terminate the training per-
iod at any time m the event a stu-
dent fails to comply with such regu-
lations. Punctual and regular atten-
dance will be required for each stu-
dent and student performance will
be appraised and recorded. At the

termination of the course, certifi-
cates will be awarded to those who
satisfactorily complete the training

Near-Misses Do Count
"A miss is as good as a mile" is an Anglo-Saxon adage most heard
at shooting contests or a game of darts. It means that regardless of
how far someone is off the mark whether it be a fraction of an inch
or several feet the marksman has still missed his target.
This saying may be acceptable in the sporting world where little
more than pride or a trophy are at stake, but is has no place in in-
dustrial safety. When an employee is involved in a near-miss accident
his life or the lives of many others may be in jeopardy. In every near-
miss accident it can be proved that somehow, somewhere something
was amiss. It also means that by some quirk of fate an employee nar-
rowly missed being injured and if the condition is allowed to exist, if
no action is taken, the next incident could result in an industrial injury.
At Lago during the month of February there were eleven near-miss
accidents. In every case, the conditions could have led to more serious
circumstances. Here are the eleven in detail.
as a scooter was being started the throttle wire broke. This per-
mitted the motor to race. The scooter struck a nearby wall before the
driver could get the scooter under control.
a crane boom buckled in the process of lifting a slide valve. The
boom clutch failed to completely disengage which let the boom con-
tinue its upward movement all the way to the boom stop.
a fan blade broke on a ceiling fan and sailed across a room.
It landed on a workbench, grazing but not injuring an employee.
a ship's tank overflowed because it was not being watched.
there was a small fire on a slurry feed exchanger while a unit
was being shut down. The cause was believed to be the result of a
temperature change in the slurry which resulted in a contraction of
the equipment and separation of the joints. This permitted hot slurry
to escape to the air and flash.
the instrument air system at a powerhouse was upset when
water entered the system. An air hose had been inadvertently left
connected to a boiler that was undergoing a hydrostatic test at a
pressure higher than that of the air system.
one shore tank overflowed because it was not being watched.
two shore tanks overflowed as the result of improper line-ups.
there was a smoldering oily sand fire in a tank undergoing
repairs. Sand had been used to cover a seepage of oil coming through
the concrete floor. The sand became saturated with the oil and when
hot work was done on the roof over the oily sand the shower of hot
metal caused the oily sand to burn and give off heavy smoke.
an oil spill occurred at one of the desalter drums when the
drain plate was removed. The drum was presumed to be empty but a
plugged drain had permitted a considerable amount of oil to remain in
the drum. This flowed out and flooded the area.
It's not hard to imagine the consequences had these near misses
materialized into something more drastic. Men could have been injured.
Equipment could have been damaged beyond repair. These near-miss
accidents could well have been headli:-ed as painful incidents.

Herd Ta Conta
"Hera no ta conta" ta un adagio cu probablemente a original for di e
concursonan di tiramento di Anglo-Saxonan. E ta nifica cu no obstante

E ta nifica tambe cu pa un of otro vuelta di suerte un empleado a hera
di haya un desgracia y si e condition worde permit pa sigui existi, si
accion no worde tumi, e proximo incident por result den un acci-
dente industrial.
Na Lago durante luna di Februari tabatin diez-un caso cu a hera ser

inspection, a slight upward warp or
camber is evident. What appear to ne
reinforcing rods protruding from slab

It's the camber that counts and it's
the steel tendons, stressed by a force
of 18,600 pounds, that cause the cam-
ber effect. Though this camber is
slight, eleven-sixteenths of an inch in
the center of a twenty-eight-foot-long
slab, it indicates that the prestress
more than equals the dead-load mo-
ment of the slab. What this means is
that the camber verifies to the en-
gineers that the correct amount of
force has been applied to the slab
through prestressing
This force, or tendency for the slab
to bow in an upward direction, acts in
the opposite direction to which the
slab will try to deflect under a given

physical law can be easily demonstrat-
ed with an ordinary piece of slightly
stiff paper and a fountain pen. Paper
held in a horizontal position between
the fingertips hardly supports its own
weight and can't begin to support the
pen that's placed on the paper. Bowed
upwards (the bow must be exaggerat-
ed in this experiment), the stressed
paper easily supports the pen's weight.

L. ran

L van Esch, assistant operator
in Process-LOF, was a three-time
CYI winner in February. In the
first place, he was awarded Fls.
700 for an adopted suggestion
and, secondly, his idea was judged
the CYI-of-the-Monli by the LYI
committee. He will also receive an
extra non-cash award for having the
most ingenious idea or the month
This extra-incentive award was ie-
cently announced by the committee
and will be presented to past and
future CYI-of-the-Month winners
This idea to boost ideas, incidentally.
was a CYI suggestion.
Mr Van Esch saw the need for
additional discharge facilities and
suggested that a ten-inch valve and
elbow be installed on the present
stub at the discharge lateral on
pump 1832 to the sixteen-inch jet fuel
line Adopted in modified form, the
installation of his suggested idea
makes it possible to use the bigger
line as a discharge line for blends in
the 660 series tanks This frees other
discharge lines for both blending
motor gasolines and receiving im-
ported motor gasoline stocks which
results in a savings in ship's time.
For his ingenuity, Mr. Van Esch was
awarded Fis 700 and was named the
best February suggester. Last yeal
he won two awards, one worth Fis

Esch W

S30 and another that paid Fls. 225.

During the month of February, a
total of Fls. 2055 was awarded to
suggesters for twenty-eight accepted
ideas r'ebruary winners were:

a sugeri pa un valve y elboog di
diez-duim worde install ariba e pre-
sente stub na e lateral di discharge
ariba pomp 1832 pa e linja di diez-
seis dulm pa combustible jet. Adop-
tA den forma modifici, e instalacion
di e linja sugeri ta haci possible pa
usa e linja mas grand como un linja
di descarga pa blends den e tanki-
nan di series 660. Esaki ta haci otro
linjanan di descarga bini liber tan-
to pa blend gasoline di motor y re-
cibi gasoline di motor import.

(Continued from page 3)
On the new finger pier the four-
foot wide slabs must support their
own seven-ton weight, the weight of
the concrete topping and forces up to
150 pounds a square foot which is
the load of a five-ton truck. Wind
forces must also be considered by
the design engineer.
By incorporating prestressed con-
crete slabs in the pier project, Ray-
mond realizes a three-way savings.
One, and most important, is the sav-
ings of deadweight on pilings and
concrete caps. Prestressed slabs ten
inches in thickness, the dimension
being used, have the same strength
as normal steel re-mforced slabs of
fifteen inch thickness yet weigh
much less. The second savings is the
elimination of carpenter form work
over the water, a necessary method
when slabs are cast on a construc-
tion site. There is a third savings in
concrete although the cost of steel
tendons and prestressing tends to
offset this.
No. 3 Finger Pier's prestressed
slabs were fabricated m the lower
yard storage area. The last slab was
made March 30.
Although the technique is not
complicated, much care must be
taken in the operation. Slabs that
fail to prestress to a given strength
must be scrapped. There is little
margin for error.
Stress Beds
Prestressing is done in three stress
beds, each about 300 feet long, with
inner dimensions the width of a slab.
Because of the tremendous stress
forces involved, these beds consist of
strong H-piles and steel cross beams
affixed to a concrete pad. H-piles
are the same fourteen-inch-thick
members used as pier pilings and
run the length of the bed. When all
tendons are under the 18,600 pounds
stress each, the 300-foot-long H-piles
are actually compressed one inch.
Each stress bed holds eight ply-
wood forms. Through holes in the
cross members on the bed's end are
strung the tendons, seven-stranded
cables of cold drawn steel wire seven-
eights of an inch in diameter. Twen-
ty-six tendons m all are passed
through the ends of each of the eight
forms in continuous lengths of 300
feet. A patented locking cone is at-
tached to one end of the tendon, and
a hydraulic jack draws the tendon
until nearly 19,000 pounds of stress
are registered. Each tendon is stress-
ed one at a time and locking cones
fixed to hold the stress.
Three checks are used to guarantee
the proper stress. A gauge on the
single hydraulic pump must register
3500 pounds a square inch of hydrau-
lic pressure. A dynamometer taking
the tension before the tendon goes
into the jack must read 18,600
pounds. Lastly, a workman physically

Seven Will Start

Lago Nurses Aid

Program April 17
A six-month course in nurses aid
training will commence April 17 at
Lago Hospital for seven young
ladies. Enrolled in the program are
Misses Eudora Gibbs, Emily C.
Proctor, Myrna Violenus, Alice L
Ollivierre, Maria Andrea Paula, Do-
rothy E. Priest and Margaret Al-
leyne. All but Miss Alleyne, a hospi-
tal maid, are new employees.
Their training will consist of
lectures given by members of the
nursing staff plus practical on-the-
job training in nurses aid proce-
dures. Lectures and classroom in-
struction will prepare the girls for
further training on medical, surgical
and obstetrics floors and in pedia-
trics and in the clinic. They will al-
so receive training in special areas
such as the delivery room and
nursery. Before being allowed to
perform nurses aid procedures, the
trainees must demonstrate their
ability to perform these duties.
As full-fledged nurses aids they
will bathe and feed patients and
take their temperature, pulse and
respiration. They will make up
dressings and packs, make beds and
help nurses prepare patients for
surgery. As a nurses aid, each will
assist professional nurses by per-
forming minor procedures, thus
freeing the nurse for more technical
Lago's nurses aid program serves
a two-fold purpose. It offers suc-
cessful trainees employment in the
hospital and can be an inspiration
to trainees to further their educa-
tions in nursing.
Certificates will be presented to
trainees who successfully complete
Lago's nurses aid training program


Senior Engineer
Kenneth J. Roberts a worde nom-
bra senior engineer den TSD-Equip-
ment Inspection Group E promo-
cion a drenta na vigor April 1. Sr.

El ta un mechanical y production

gauges the drawn tendon. If the
stress is correct, the 300-foot tendon
will be actually 18.7 inches longer,
which is quite a stretch.
Once all the tendons have been
stressed, concrete is poured. Lago's
C-9 cement, which normally takes
twenty-eight days to cure, gets a
plastiment additive which allows less
water to be used. This accelerates
the curing process so that the slabs
can be lifted from the beds after
three days cure. With the three-day
cure process, the contractor can turn
over the three stress beds once a
week and produce twenty-eight slabs
Before the tendons can be burned
through to release each individual
slab, the tension must be gradually
eased by hydraulic jacks. This is a
critical part of the operation as the
cross beams must move in with an
even movement or the stress may be
unequally relieved.
Prestressing was introduced in the
United States during World War II.
Its use can mainly be found in the
construction of parking garages, air-
craft hangars, warehouses and high-
way bridge beams. Raymond used
prestressing in the construction of
the twenty-six-mile long Lake Pont-
chartrai bridge in Louisiana and is
currently using post-tension cylinder
piles on the Cape Charles Causeway
at Norfolk, Virgima. The company
has a patent on this process which
also was used to fabricate drilling
platform pilings at Lake Maracaibo.
Incidentally, the designer respon-
sible for No. 3 Finger Pier also de-
signed the much-touted East River
pier Raymond is constructing at 23rd
Street in New York City. Prestress-
ed slabs also figure in this construc-
tion project which even includes a
landing port for helicopters.
