New Road Through Tank Farm

Will Save Time, Cut Mileage
Approximately 1000 employees will save three miles of travel every
'day when the new roadway through the tank farm is opened about
Nov. 1. The fenced-in road will be controlled from Gate 5, near the
Garage, which will be relocated north of its present site. This gate,
now open eleven hours daily, will be a twenty-four-hour control point.
Gate 6, better known as the Sea
Grape gate, will be closed since em- Lab Personnel Process

After Gate 5 is relocated and Gate
6 is closed, Gate 8, located at the
bottom of Lago Heights hill, will be
open only to pedestrian traffic dur-
ing shift changes. There will be no

Princesses' Aruba Visit
To Be Featured in Next
Issue of Aruba Esso News
Lago had two royal visitors
yesterday. Princess Irene and
Princess Margret were met at
the entrance of the Employee
Medical Center at 11:20 a.m. by
President W. A. Murray and
other members of the Executive
Committee. Following a brief tour
of the refinery and a visit to the
Youth Canteen in Seroe Colorado,
the royal visit culminated at Pres-
ident Murray's home.
Pictorial coverage of the visit
to Lago and other events during
the Aruba stay of the princesses
will be published in the Aug. 11
issue of the Aruba Esso News.

Prior to World War II, traffic was
not controlled in the tank farm. Em-
ployees drove freely from the pres-
ent location of Gate 8 to the Mech-
anical Department's garage where
badges had to be shown.
When Gate 5 becomes the east en-
trance to Lago, control principles
currently in use at Gate 6 will be
used. After 8:30 p.m., the gate will
be closed on the outbound-traffic
side. Outbound traffic will be passed
by the guard through the inbound
gate. All traffic will be controlled
between midnight and 6 a.m.
Gate 6 will be locked permanently
after the completion of the roadway

services for gas testing, inspecting,
and certifying refinery equipment
prior to the issuance of work permits
will no longer be provided by the
Safety Division.
Gas testing will be done by TSD-
Lab No. 2 personnel on a twenty-
fcur-hour basis. Requests for this
service should be made to the head
man on shift at telephone numbers
2418 or 3333. This employee will
maintain radio contact with gas
testers when they are out in the
field. This service will no longer be
done by the Mechanical Depart-
ment's radio dispatcher.
Full responsibility for inspecting
equipment and the surrounding area
will rest with the Process Depart-
ment and other equipment owners as
defined in the "Lago Work Permits
Manual of Regulations and Proce-
dures." This requires the equipment
owner's representative to assure that
the unit is properly isolated and pre-
pared prior to the issuance of hot
work, cold work or modified hot
work permits.
The equipment owner will be res-
ponsible for indicating to laboratory
personnel the equipment that is to
be tested, which gas tests are to be
made and the different locations on
the vessel where the tests are to be
performed. The work permit will ul-
timately be issued by the equipment
owner after the vessel has been iso-
lated (blinded) and prepared for

Thirty-Year Service Emblems July 11
Thirty-year service certificates and emblems were presented July 11
to Antonio Boekhout, cleanout corporal in Mechanical-Yard, and Daniel
W. Brewer, assistant shift foreman in Process-Light Oils Finishing.
The two long-service employees received their service awards at a
special management staff meeting from F. C. Donovan, vice president
and general manager.

He was assigned to Mechanical-
Yard cleanout in 1941 and in a series
of promotions became a process hel-

man. Mr. Boekhout was promoted
to cleanout corporal in 1951. Mr.
Kossuth said that Mr. Boekhout has
never had a lost-time accident.
Mr. Boekhout was with C.P.I.M.
in Curagao and with Eagle in Aruba
before he joined Lago. For recreation
he likes to play dominoes, Mr. Kos-
suth said, and watch football.
In closing, Mr. Kossuth told Mr.
Bcekhout: "You have done a very
good job and people on the job like
you and your work. We are glad to
have you in the department."
J. R. Proterra, acting process su-
perintendent, recounted both on-the-
job and personal anecdotes about
Mr. Brewer at the awards meeting.
He said that Mr. Brewer's family
could qualify as a "Lago" family.
His father was a carpenter years
ago, his sister was a chemist in the
laboratory and his brother was em-
ployed in Process-Receiving and
"He once had a length of service
of just five days. That beats Mr

1934, he joined Process-Light Oils
Finishing as an operator third class.
"Danny has pumped a lot of oil
and gasoline," Mr. Proterra said. He
worked up through the ranks as a
shift man and was an assistant oper-
ator and operator before his prom-
otion to assistant shift foreman in
September, 1954.
In the course of Mr. Proterra's
review, he recounted a couple of
humorous anecdotes. 'Danny likes
good, thick soup. He had an asso-
ciate on the job who would drink
some of Danny's soup when Danny
was making his rounds. This asso-
ciate kept adding hot water to the
soup to disguise his caper. Danny
kept blaming his wife for not mak-
ing good, thick soup. After this as-
sociate went on furlough, Danny's
soup got thick again and his wife
was vindicated," Mr. Proterra re-
He also told about the time that
F. E. Griffin, at that time division
superintendent of light oils, had is-
sued an order for operators to stay
on top of crude tanks while they
were being filled so they could be
used to maximum capacity. Danny
took the order literally, Mr. Pro-
terra went on, and stood on top of
a tank one night while it was being
filled. "He was supposed to signal
the pumper with a flashlight when
the tank was full. But the light went
out and first thing you know Danny
was standing ankle deep in oil," Mr.
Proterra said.
Mr. Brewer added to Mr. Proter-
ra's anecdote by saying that Mr.
Griffin had also told him to take
pebbles and drop them in the tank.
"I guess this was suggested so I
could see the oil with my flash-
light," Mr. Brewer recalled.

This year's observance of the United States'
186th birthday had all the earmarks of those
early traditional celebrations. Hundreds of Ame-
ricans from Seroe Colorado and the island
descended on Lone Palm stadium for an after-
noon of good, old "Fun on the Fourth." Enter-

ball games, flag ceremony and the evening fire-

Four Killed on Aruba Highways This

Year; 350 Accidents Blot 1962 Record
Four have died on Aruba highways this year. Many others were in-
volved in the 350 accidents that blot the 1962 traffic record. None of
these accidents had to happen. But because drivers take on many pe-
culiar characteristics when they settle behind the steering wheel of
their car, there are accidents. People who are normally law abiding
citizens suddenly flout all traffic
rules and regulations when they feel last year's accidents were directly
the surge of power answer the pres- attributable to motorists disregard-
sure of their foot on the accelerator. ing signs.
Last year eight residents of Aruba Nineteen per cent of the accidents
were killed in traffic accidents. Sev- in 1961 were caused by speeding.
enty-five others were seriously in- There are definite speed regulations
jured, and there were 752 accidents which are well posted on Aruba's

on Aruba's roads. The figures are
startling and measure to some de-
gree the amount of unnecessary grief
brought to many families.
Lago is currently emphasizing off-
the-job safety not only as an em-
ployee program but also one that
benefits the entire community. Saf-
ety is everyone's job. It has been
said that safety should start in the
home. Excellent. It should also be
carried into the front seat of the
family automobile and practiced on
the open stretches of Aruba's high-
ways. Aruba has about 100 miles of
asphalt-topped roadways. They should
be used as surfaces of convenience,
pleasure and relaxation. They should
not be used as speedways that in-
stantly can become death traps;
they should not become avenues of
irritation where a driver disregards
laws established to protect him and
his family.
Lack of Knowledge
In 1961, thirty-five per cent of
the accidents that occurred in Aruba
were caused directly by the lack of
knowledge of signs and traffic reg-
ulations. This is unnecessary, ob-
viously. All drivers should maintain
their knowledge of road signs and
traffic regulations. They have to
know them to get their license; the
knowledge should not diminish. It
could cost a motorist his life or per-
haps the life of a member of his
family. For that reason, the traffic
signs and signals used in Aruba are
carried on these two pages. If any
motorist does not know all these
signs, he should learn them. Cut out
the above display and keep it nearby
for reference. If the meaning of a
sign should be forgotten, look it up
so that the next time its instruction
will be known.
Don't disregard traffic signs. They
are placed for the motorist's pro-
tection. Can you imagine what the
highways in Aruba or anyplace else
would be like if traffic were not
regulated? It would be deadly chaos
Nevertheless, twenty-five per cent of

highways. They are meant to be fol-
lowed to insure orderly traffic flow.
The limit in towns is 40 kilometers.
On the road from San Nicolas to the
Santa Cruz road, the limit is 60 kilo-
meters. From the Santa Cruz road
to Oranjestad it is 70 kilometers.
Motorists are warned, however, that
they must observe the construction
area at Barcadera and adjust their
speed accordingly. The highway to
the hotel has a speed limit of 75
kilometers, but again motorists are
expected to adjust their speed and
be alert to the cais parked near the
road and people getting in and out
of these cars.
The fourth major cause of acci-
dents, seventeen per cent, was driv-
ing under the influence of alcohol.
One drink lessens the reaction time
of a motorist. Each driver in Aruba
should remember this when he drinks
and then drives. No matter how good
he may think he is, he is not as com-
petent a driver after one drink as he
was before he took that one drink.
Do not pass at intersections, on
curves or hills. It's dangerous and
against the law in Aruba. These
areas are marked with white divid-
ing lines, which indicate no passing
areas. Where there is a stop sign,
don't stop along side the sign, stop
at the corner beyond the sign. The
intention of the sign is to commit the
motorist to stop at the corner where
he can look in all directions before
pulling out on to another street
Glaring headlights also cause ac-
cidents by blinding the approaching
motorist. Be courteous. Dim your
lights when you approach an oncom-
ing vehicle.
There are many ways to drive
safely. There are many ways to ex-
tend the courtesy of the road to
other drivers and pedestrians. All
must begin with the desire of the
motorist to think, act and drive saf-
ely. The next time you, Mr. Motorist,
reach for your ignition key, pledge
Yourself to safe and lawful driving
or don't turn the key.

'Courtesy Behind the Wheel'
(This article, entitled "Courtesy Behind the Wheel," first ap-
peared several years ago in a booklet called "Guide To Safe
Driving." The booklet was published by Lago in cooperation with
the Aruba police. It is reprinted here for the succinct message
it conveys.)
The safe way is always the courteous way. When you drive
with consideration for those accompanying you and for the other
driver, you are driving safely. There can be no other way. Good
manners behind the wheel insure a safe journey, an enjoyable
journey, for you, your family or friends with you, and fellow
drivers on Aruba's roads.
Don't cheat the law. Courteous drivers never do. Laws are
established and enforced for your protection. Disregard for the
law endangers your life and the lives of others
Pedestrians deserve particular attention. Many of them are
non-drivers and don't appreciate your position behind the wheel.
Children playing by the roadside don't think before they dash.
It is up to the driver to keep his car in complete control and
watch out for them. By law, drivers must yield the right of way
to pedestrians crossing the roadway within any marked cross-
walk. If a pedestrian walking on the roadway does not pay at-
tention to your horn, be considerate think before you act in
haste. There are many people walking the streets whose old age,
youth, infirmities, or physical defects would throw the entire
responsibility of an accident upon you
At night be courteous in the use of your lights. The bright or
upper beam can momentarily blind the driver of a car coming in
the opposite direction. It's a peculiarly helpless feeling to be
directing a car while confronted by glaring headlights. Lower
your beam when approaching another car. In so doing you will be
law-abiding and courteous.

SO FAR this year, four have died on Aruba highways. Last year eight
persons died in traffic accidents. When drivers flout traffic rules and
regulations, the results can be most tragic. A far from pleasant sight
is a mangled wreck in which the spark of life has been extinguished.

ed in an emergency.
Signs will caution all employees
using the new roadway that there
will be no smoking.
Eventually, there will be just two
vehicular entrances into Lago. Gate
5 will be the east entrance and the
Main Gate, scheduled to be relocated
in the vicinity of the Employee Med-
ical Center, will be the west entrance.
When this is put into effect, Gate 2,
west of the shops, will be eliminated.
Vehicular and pedestrian traffic
moving through the Main Gate will
be fully controlled from a central
gate house. Guards stationed there
will operate electric gates at the
dock entrance. The roadway from
the Main Gate will be relocated
slightly east of its present route.
The need for dock designations on
refinery badges will be eliminated
when this change takes place.
Changes in Gate 3 control hours
also will take place when Gate 5 is
relocated and the new roadway com-
pleted. Gate 3, near the GOB, will be
manned from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. and
from 11:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Em-
ployees who need to enter the ref-
inery at other hours will do so at
Gate 5.
