Fls.1890 Coin Your Idea

Sum Earned by P. Storey

For Pneumatic Tool Plan
A suggestion to lengthen the
loan period of pneumatic tools
drawn from the Central Tool Room
earned its suggested. Peter Storey
of Mechanical-Yard, Fls. 1890, and
the title suggester-of-the-month. The
award is the second highest initial
award in the history of Lago's sug-
gestion plan The amount exceeds
that which was awarded D. W, Mar-
ques of Process-LOF by FIs. 65, and
is second only to the all-time high cf
Fls 5000 awarded to C F Bond of
Mechanical in 1953. Mr Marques
earned his high award in March.
Prior to Mr Storey's suggestion.
pneumatic tools paving breakers,

jackhammers, chipping hammers,
scaling hammers, rivetting hammers,
rivet busters, jumpers and desealing
pistols -- had to be returned to the
Central Tool Room within seven
days. The procedure accounted for a
large amount of handling time to the
field forces, pickup crews, and at the
CTR Mr Storey suggested that the
loan period be extended thereby eli-
minating the costly and time-con-
suming trips back and forth to the
CTR before the jobs on which the
pneumatic tools were being used were
completed. It was the opinion of the
suggested that a thirty-day or four-
week period would be ample to com-
plete the tasks of these tools on the
majority of projects.
It was estimated that extension of
the pneumatic tool loan period will
save approximately 4000 hours a
year, and during the same period
save Lago over Fls. 12,000. The sug-
gestion also covers the loan period
of turbine type tools such as drills,
pumps, wrenches and saws. It does
not include grinders and hoists The
seven day loan period will be con-

The Source

People, as a general rule, like to talk. They enjoy communicating, as
conversation is classically identified today. This is as it should be.
The exchange of information, of thoughts, of ideas has made this a
progressive age in which to live. There always exist, unfortunately,
informants who know not of what they speak. This does not deter their
flow of words, though. They speak with a tone of authority albeit
without basis or fact.
It is human nature to imagine oneself an oracle, a source of inform-
ation. It is just as human with some to want to tell others the details
of a situation and be able and willing to answer all questions. This is
commendable if the information available is exact and correct. More
often than we care to admit, it is not. Again, however, the lack of in-
formation from a primary source does not hinder the many talkers of
our society as they strive to be the center of attention. They want to
be recognized as those who know.
These are people who jump to conclusions, presuppose and assume,
magnify and exaggerate. It stands as fact that no story can be told
twice in exactly the same fashion. Often the barest thread of truth
taken in casual conversation can undergo amazing transmutations
to completely unfounded and false reports. Such stories serve no one.
They are a disservice to those involved and to the community.
In the instance of a mishap such as that which occurred at Lago
Wednesday, Oct 10 a tremendous amount of concern and worry and
possible damage can be caused by loose, ill-founded and easily-con-
ceived stories that comprise cause and affect. It is the wise man who
reserves judgement until facts have been established. Lago issued press
releases immediately after the recent mishap, but they could not quash
or even keep pace with the wild, unfounded stories that swept the is-
land. Reports of injury and death should be well established and not
spread freely without substantiation from an authoritative source. This
the talkers should do in deference to those involved.
To place or infer blame without the slightest bit of knowledge of
events, situations, or conditions leading to an incident is dowright
cruel. Such reports are unfair to the innocent, the dependable, the res-
pected, all of whom are touched by the broad sweep of rumor's ill wind.
This is an excellent time to reserve judgement. Listen for the official
announcement of facts. Don't give audience to wild stories, and, per-
haps most important of all, don't create or pass along unfounded inter-
pretations. Think of those who directly or indirectly may be wronged.
The next time a friend passes along a hot tip or explanation, stop
and think before passing it along. Is it true? Will it cause worry and
onnoern amnnno nioihhnrs and fellnuw nmnlneoos ? 9 Phon~~ aore it hoc

Name and Titles Changed
In Three Departments
No longer does Lago have a
Technical Service Department,
that is as far as the name is con-
cerned. The service has been drop-
ped, again in name only, and what
formerly was TSD is now, suc-
cinctly, TD Technical Depart-
ment. At the same time, the su-
perintendent title of the Techni-
cal, Mechanical and Process de-
partment heads has been changed
to manager.
In the Mechanical Department,
the positions of division superin-
tendent, Crafts, and division su-
perintendent, Technical and Ad-
ministration, have been combined
to form division superintendent,

Many Memories
Mr. Ewart, like most of the early
Aruba employees, has many stories.
It is these men whose memories and
ability to relate help record some of
Aruba's and Lago's unrecorded past.
There are many highlights in Mr.
Ewart's past, and which is most spec-
tacular and most memorable is hard
for Mr. Ewart to judge.
One aspect of changing times
which Mr. Ewart did emphasize,
however, was not in relation to him
self, but in relation to Aruba. Said
Mr. Ewart: "The development of the
San Nicolas community, the growth
of Aruba, the progress of Aruba's
people, and the establishment of the
finest standard of living in the Car-
ibbean all of this in association
with Lago is a classic example of
what private enterprise can contri-
bute to a country."

He stated that had the 1928 photo-
grapher swung his camera a little bit

graphed the original Lago T-dock.

later became the barge dock. The

There were many forms of resi-

more prominent structures are the
bunkhouses or "sheep sheds" that
housed many of Lago's early expa-

Lago Policemen Begin Course

Covering Varied Duty Changes

qg. b Predicated on the fact that the functions
and obligations of members of the Lago
Police Department have undergone many
Changes, a training course has been des-
a AM. j signed to adapt police personnel to their ,

many udiLerent responsiibiities. nTe prime
objective of the training course is to equip
its participants with knowledge and abi-
lity to cope with any of the many func-
tions required of Lago policemen. Basic-
ally, the course covers the requirements
of a constable second class in the govern-
ment police organization. There are pres-
ently two groups of Lago policemen tak-
ing the training course. In the first class
are ten men, in the second eleven. Each
class attends the training sessions for one
week, then returns to two weeks of reg-
ular duty. Following this, the men return
for another week of training. After
another two-week stint of regular duty,
they return again for their third and final
week of training. In all, the trainees will
be in class a total of 117 hours. The
course outlines traffic laws, the penal
code and other ordinances given to as-
pirant policemen in the government train-
ing course. Lago's rules and regulations
are thoroughly interpreted and explained.

sona. "Pero e auto mas memorable
tabata esun di Fred Penny y Ralph
Watson. Tabata un Ford model T sin
capa, sin tapadera pa su motor, y
realmente masha poco di motor mes.
E tabata lora mas cu e tabata core."
Nos por a mira cor Sr. Ewart ta-
bata goza e recuerdo cy. Banda di
1935 tabatin mas cu mil auto no
Aruba. Sr. Ewart tabatin un, y su
number tabata 899. Majoria di em-
pleadonan tabata cana bai trabao, of
riba buricu. Basta tempu a pasa pro-
mer cu asina tantu empleado di Lago
por a bira donjo di un auto.
Tempu di jegada di Sr. Ewart e
concession mes tabatin un dock den
forma di T, algun tanki pa zeta,
pomp di stoom y diezcuater boiler pa
produce e stoom necesario. Un di e
pompnan ainda ta na servicio pa
pomp born di tanki. Y naturalmente
tabatin tambe loke a keda di mmna
di guano. Riel di trein tabata core di
haf pa lugar caminda awendia hos-
pital ta, y un otro linja di riel tabata
bai di mina pa porta number 6
Mirando atras riba e anjanan cu a
pasa Sr. Ewart a duna detalje di
binti empleado cu tabata tres luna
riba payroll di Lago, y cu sin duda
tabata empleadonan di mas particu-
lar cu Lago tabatin nunca anterior.
Tabata binti Indjan Colombiano, cu
nan a trece Aruba pa juda coba fun-
deshi pa Powerhouse No. 1. Nan a
jega den un balandra cu tres muher
di nan mes tribu. E balandra a traca
na Playa y e Indjannan mes ora a
plama tur ariba Aruba. Nan a bai
buscanan y a duna nan lugar di biba
banda di e lugar caminda awor
Wholesale Commissary ta.
Naturalmente ningun di e Indjan-
nan por a papia un palabra di singles,
pero e problema di combersacion ta-
bata pi6 pasobra solamente un di nan
por a papia Spanj6. Esey tabata nan
hefe. Pa duna e Indjannan instruc-
cion pa trabao, nan supervisor cu ta
papia ingles master a duna e res-
pondi na in trahador cu tabata com-
prende Ingles. Esey a traduci in-
struccionnan pa e hefe Indjan, y na
su turno e hefe a duna orden na su
hendenan lenga native. Sr. Ewart a
para un moment pensando cu asom-
bro corn, make ta trinta y cuater
anja pasa, y di cual forma e instru-
cionnan ey tabata jega na trahador-
nan. E hefe Indjan semper tabata
disponibel pa pasa instruction, pa
simpel motibu cu e mes nunca tabata
traha. Nunca e no a hiza ni sikiera
un dede pa haci trabao. E tabata
sinta na rand di e buracu cu nan ta-
bata coba, mirando corn e otro hen-
denan tabata traha.
E indjannan tabata present na
trabao un tras di otro. Nan tabata
cana for di nan cas pa trabao un
tras di otro. E hefe na cabez. E otro-
nan tabata sigi su tras segun edad.
Na un moment durante nan estadia
di tres luna Sr. Ewart y su ayudan-
tenan a sinja e Indjannan con ta usa
mashin pa coba buraco pa poste, y
corn ta pone e postenan haltu na lu-
gar pa carga waya di coriente. E
trabao aki e Indjannan a goza masha
hopi mes y, segun Sr. Ewart ta con-
ta nos, a bira masha dificil pa pone
haci sikiera mitar di nan trabao ora
anochi ta sera.
Pero un problema di marca major
a bini ora no tabatin master di mas
