SCapital Awards of FIs. 5535 Feb. 15

M. Garrido, Top 1961 Suggester, Is Awarded

Largest Capital Award in History of CYI Plan
The largest single capital award in the history of Lago's Coin Your
Ideas Plan was presented to M. J. Garrido, mechanic A in Mechanical-
Machinist, at capital award ceremonies Feb. 15. The top suggested for
1961 received a check for Fls. 1760 from President W. A. Murray at
ceremonies attended by seven either capital award winners, members of
Lago's executive committee and CYI
committee, and supervisors of the winners the previous year because of
suggesters. Lago's increased savings in 1961.

son was assigned to Process-LOF as
a laborer in 1943. He became an
Ethyl blender helper in 1956.
Mr. Huffman began his company
career Feb. 24, 1925, with Standard
Oil Company (Indiana). He joined
Lago May 12, 1930, as a second class
helper in the Pressure Stills. He be-
came an operator third class in 1934
and was promoted to assistant oper-
ator in 1937. From Hydro Poly oper-
ator he moved to Process-Cracking
and Light Ends in 1943 as a shift
breaker for shift foremen. Mr. Huff-
man was promoted to shift foreman
in 1947 and process foreman in 1954.

March, 1961, four months after Mr.
Wester's death.
Because total awards for 1961 were
approximately FIs. 3000 greater than
1960 CYI payments, company sav-,
ings for the year from adopted and
installed ideas greatly exceeded sav-
ings for the previous year. In 1961,'
a total of 303 ideas were accepted
for awards which totaled Fls. 19,790.
The ten who qualified for capital
awards to be eligible an employee
must receive Fls. 300 or more for all

Simple Formula Used
For Capital Awards
The method of determining cap-
Ital award payments has been in
use since the inception of Lago's
revised CYI Plan, adopted in
November, 1959. Employees who
qualify for capital award pay-
ments share a percentage of the
company's gross savings from
suggestions adopted and installed
during the year. Actual savings
from ideas must be accrued by
the company so that a percentage
can be distributed to capital
award winners In 1960 and 1961.
five per cent of all savings from
all ideas made up the capital
award jackpots. A capital award
winner shares proportionately in
the jackpot. The greater his ini-
tial awards, the greater his cap-
ital award.
The awards are calculated from
a simple formula. The capital
award winner's initial savings are
divided into the total savings ot
all capital award recipients. The
resultant is multiplied times five
per cent of the company's gross
savings for the year.
Following last year's practice
of announcing this savings for-
mula early in the year, Lago
management has again approved
the five per cent figure for use in
calculating 1962 capital awards.

by notching the shaft and welding
cleats on the hub to fit the notches.
In September, he became the first
repeat CYI-of-the-Month winner with
his Fls. 750 idea to increase the
number of hub retaining cap screws
from two to four on the F-2 crane.
Mr. Sand's initial award was
Fls. 900 for the adoption of his idea
of a self-designed tester to speed up
the maintenance of the Automatic
Distillation Apparatus. Mr. Leonce's
capital award of Fls. 600 was based
on his initial Fls. 750 award for his
suggestion to mount strainers on the
suction side of an air pump similar
to the six-inch strainers used on
units. This has stopped rags and
other objects from fouling pump
The suggestion to install a ten-inch
valve and elbow on a present stub at

was worth a Fls. 700 initial award
to Mr. Van Esch, another CYI-of-

the-Month winner last year.

Lago Eliminates TEL Inventory






Standing left of the main refinery road
between the East Pier and No. 1 Finger
Pier is an installation unique to Lago. Con-
sisting in the main of two silver storage
tanks that do not, in the least, give a
surface impression of being unique the
installation is neither owned nor financed
by Lago yet it will reduce the company's
inventory by approximately $500,000.
The new tanks, special pumps and two
three-inch lines that make a direct 4400-
foot run to a Process-LOF blending plant
are the capital investment of the Ethyl
Corporation in the United States. Each
tank holds about 6500 tons of tetraethyl
lead compound which is the most effective
and economical agent for increasing the
octane number of motor and aviation gas-
Until this compound reaches weigh tanks
in the Ethyl Blending Plant, it belongs to
the Ethyl Corporation. The inventory in the
motor lead and aviation lead storage tanks
is to Ethyl's account. In addition to elimin-
ating its inventory of hundreds of drums
of tetraethyl lead, Lago has eliminated the
arduous and potentially hazardous job of
unloading extremely heavy drums of motor
and aviation lead. Aviation lead drums
weigh almost 1000 pounds each. There are


also hazards involved in transferring te-
traethyl lead from drums in weighing and
blending operations. Workers must wear
gas masks and white rubber gloves, aprons
and boots. The highly toxic compound can
be absorbed through the skin as well as the
respiratory system.
Although Lago still has an inventory of
about 1240 drums of aviation and motor
leads, this will be eliminated as the new
system is proved out. The Ethyl Blending
Plant will remain in operation, however, to
weigh the bulk compound before it is added
to motor and aviation gasoline stocks. Lago
must weigh bulk tetraethyl lead as volum-
etric transfer is not feasible.
Curagao Drydock Company built the
tanks and installed the lines. The instal-
lation followed blueprints furnished by the
Ethyl Corporation. TSD coordinated the
job. Work started Aug. 14, 1961, and the
first bulk load of 1,300,000 pounds of avia-
tion tetraethyl lead was pumped to the
aviation lead tank from the Chemical
Trader, a special-purpose Ethyl carrier,
Feb. 3. The ship's second cargo, delivered
Feb. 25, consisted of half a million pounds
of motor lead, a month's supply at Lago,
and another 1,300,000 pounds of aviation
(Continued on page 8)

A DIMINUTIVE British-flag special-purpose tan-
ker, the Chemical Trader, brought the first ship-
ment of bulk tetraethyl lead to Lago Feb. 3. The
vessel, left photo, delivered a part cargo of about
6500 tons of aviation TEL which was pumped to
one of two new storage tanks, right photo, built
for and owned by the Ethyl Corporation in the
United States.

(Continued from page 1)
Mr. Rosborough came to Lago
Sept. 16, 1930, as a process chemist
after a year's employment with
Standard Oil Company (Indiana). He
transferred to TSD-Process Engin-
eering in August, 1945, as a group
head A. From that date until he
transferred to Process-LOF in 1952,
Mr. Rosborough was engaged mainly
in process control work. He was
promoted to assistant division super-
intendent Jan. 1, 1952, in Process-
LOF. His transfer to Process-C&LE
came in August, 1956.
Mr. Mathews' entire service career
has been spent in Aruba. He joined
Lago Aug. 25, 1929, as a machinist
and by Jan. 1, 1939, had advanced to
assistant general foreman of Mech-
anical-Machinist and Foundry. Mr.
Mathews was named general foreman
in 1947 and upon his transfer to
Mechanical-Administration in 1949
was promoted to assistant division
superintendent-Crafts. In 1956, he
was named division superintendent in
the Storehouse. He moved back to
the crafts group in Mechanical-Ad-
ministration last August.

lead, forty-five days supply. A spec-
ial manifold was constructed on No.
1 Finger Pier for pumping off the
lead compounds.
Each tank has an extra thick shell
and rests on a concrete base. Each is
almost twenty-eight feet high and
has a diameter of thirty-five feet.
Motors on top of the tanks are link-
ed by shafts to pumps set below the
bottom level. Every precaution has
been taken in the handling of this
product Extra tank rigidity was re-
quired to contain the lead compound
which is almost twice as heavy as
water or about fourteen pounds a
gallon. The two lines actually hold
25.000 pounds of the compound.
Just three cubic centimeters of
lead compound in a gallon of motor
gasoline can raise the octane num-
ber from 89 to 97. To the motorist
this means a better grade fuel with
knock-free characteristics at the best
possible price. To the motor car ma-
nufacturer, an economically-avail-
able high octane fuel means public
acceptance of the more efficient
high-compression-ratio engine. Te-

cially available in 1922, evens out
