Lago Efforts Help Create Employment

Through Jersey Ship Painting Venture
A Lago effort, resulting in the decision of some shippers to have
their vessels painted in Aruba, has opened a new avenue for job op-
portunities on the island. That this effort is a contributing factor to
alleviate the impact of force reduction on employees is illustrated by
the fact that about fifty per cent of the men working on ship painting

are former Lago employees.
The reason for painting ships in
Aruba, or other foreign ports, is
that the shrinking crews cannot ab-
sorb this major maintenance in ad-
dition to their regular chores when
the ship is in port. The day-to-day
operation of a 50,000 dead-weight
ton tanker, for example, requires a
crew of twenty-five to thirty men;
about forty men are required to
properly paint a ship of this size.
Adding to this situation is the fact
that a ship needs about two paint-

ings a year and it is not economical
to remove it from service twice a
year just on this basis.
Shippers, therefore, have coped
with this situation by engaging
shore forces to paint their vessels
while in port. Esso tankers shuttling
between Aruba-Maracaibo readily
lend themselves to this arrangement.
If the paint job is not completed
during one stop, it is completed the
next time the tanker calls here.

Castles In the Sand

In a democratic society where leaders govern by consent of the
people, the most cherished voice of the people's will is the law, time
tested, so the greatest number might benefit while at the same time
protecting the rights of the minority. Essentially these laws, upon
which our entire social structure is founded, are reminders that we
don't forget the reason for their being. Laws, when based on demo-
cratic process, are what give order to our society and prevent it from
degenerating into one where the weak are at the mercy of the strong-
est or most cunning. It is a most imperative charge of us all that we
protect our legal structure from persons who would trifle with it and
disregard the people's will.
With the great numbers of laws society as a whole is subject to,
every man at one time or another finds that on a particular issue or
question he supports a minority opinion. Fortunately, however, our
system makes provisions so that any minority may be heard and have
its day in court. It also provides, of course, that the will of the minor-
ity will not be imposed on the majority through use of force or coer-
sion. The right of equality before the law and through the use of law
rather than force or devious means is undoubtedly one of mankind's
greatest accomplishments and, at the same time, one of its most
idealistic goals, for as the world changes and progresses, so, too, must
our laws reflect this opinion change by the majority.
The laws applying to and governing the ways by which an individual
earns his living, for example, are perhaps more closely scrutinized
than other laws because of the universal application to us all. This
close scrutiny has resulted in changes through the years that have
enabled our laws to stay in step with both the times and reason. Con-
sequently, there is provision in our system for both employer and
employee should either feel he has been treated unjustly.
In any democratic system there will always be those that attempt
to offer leadership that sidesteps or directly steps on the law and who
would desecrate a system which countless sons and fathers have died
on foreign shores to protect.
Throughout history, unscrupulous and self-seeking leaders have urg-
ed men to break the law under the pretense that the ends justify the
means and that social injustice will be alleviated. Often these indivi-
duals have been able to gather about them unthinking persons with
little regard for their fellowman. These persons who have allowed
their wishes and rights to be taken so lightly have later found them-
selves subject to a greater tyranny than any which might have existed
- whether real or imaginary.
It is for everyone of us to beware those who would take our legal
system, built upon pillars of truth and justice and cemented with the
blood of truly noble men, and who would offer in exchange merely
castles in the sand.

Castilio Den Santo

Den un sociedad democratic na unda lidernan ta goberna door di
consentimento di e pueblo, e voz mas apreciA di e voluntad di pueblo
ta ley, cu a want prueba di tempo, asina cu e mayoria grand por
beneficih mientras na mes tempo el ta proteha e derechonan di mi-
noria. Como un parti esencial, e leynan aki ariba cual henter nos
estructura social ta fund, ta recordatorionan pa nos no lubida e
motibo pakiko nan ta existi. Leynan, ora nan ta basa ariba process
democratic, ta loke ta duna orden na nos sociedad y ta preveni cu e
ta degenera den un sociedad den cual e debilnan ta na clemencia di
esnan mas fuerte of mas astuto. Ta un mandate de lo mas imperative
pa nos tur proteha nos estructura legal for di personanan cu lo trata
cu ne sin seriedad y no ta haci caso di e voluntad di pueblo.
Cu e gran cantidad di leynan na cual sociedad den su henter ta keda
someti, tur hende na un moment of otro ta haya cu ariba un asunto
of question particular el ta apoya e opinion di minoria. Afortunada-
mente, sinembargo, nos sistema ta contene stipulacionnan asina cu
cualkier minoria por ser tendi of por tin su dia den corte. E sistema
tambe ta percura naturalmente cu e voluntad di e minoria lo no ser
imponi ariba e mayoria door di uso di forza of coercion. E derecho di
igualdad dilanti di ley, y usando ley envez di forza of medionan errante,
ta indudablemente uno di e exitonan mas grand di humanidad y na
mes tempo uno di su obhetonan mas idealistico, pasobra segun mundo
ta cambia y progress, asina tambe nos leynan mester refleha e cambio
di opinion aki door di mayoria.
E leynan cu ta aplica na y ta goberna e manera den cual un persona
individual ta gana su mantenecion di bida, por ehempel, podiser ta ser
examine mas cuidadoso cu otro leynan, pa motibo di nan aplicacion
universal ariba nos tur. E examination cuidadoso aki a result den
cambionan durante anjanan, cualnan a permit nos leynan mantene
paso cu tempo y husticia. Consecuentemente, tin stipulacion den nos
sistema tanto pa dunador di trabao como pa empleado si un di nan
sinti cu el a ser trata inhustamente.
Den cualkier sistema democratic semper lo tin esnan cu ta trata
pa duna direction cu ta evita of directamente ta atrapa ley y kende lo
profana un sistema, pa protection di cual incontable yiunan y tatanan
a muri ariba costanan estranhera.
Den henter historic, lidernan sin escrupulo y egoista a urgi hende
pa kibra ley bao e pretexto cu e finnan ta hustifica e medionan y cu
inhusticia social lo ser alivid. Hopi bez e ;ndividuonan aki a logra di
reuni rond di nan personanan indescreto cu poco respect pa nan pro-
himo. E personanan aki cu a permit nan deseonan y derechonan ser
tuma asina facil, despues a haya nan mes someti na un tirania mas
grand cu cualkier otro por a existi sea berdadera of imaginario.
Ta keda na cada uno di nos pa warda nos mes contra esnan cu lo
tuma nos sistema legal, cual ta construi ariba pilarnan di berdad y
husticia y ta cement cu sanger di hendenan realmente noble, y cu
solamente lo bai ofrece en cambio castilio den santo.

Coin-Your-Idea statistics at the year's halfway point indicate a lag
of more than thirty per cent in ideas received. This figure is based
on each one hundred eligible employees. At the same time, there is
better than a one hundred per cent increase in the size of the average

Arubans Count Hurricane

Blessings But Prepare

For Close Passage Effects
Throughout the years Aruba has
not been directly in the paths of
hurricanes. Hurricane Hazel in 1954
came closest of any in recent years
when it passed one hundred miles
north of the island. Aruba, however,
does get plenty of rain when there
Is a hurricane in the neighborhood,
and when one is nearby, Arubans
follow it with great interest. In-
formation media immediately swing
into action to keep the public in-
formed of the storm's course. This
public interest in hurricanes is re-
flected in the custom of naming a
flu which may develop at that time
after the hurricane.
Many people think of hurricanes
in terms of the regular wind getting
stronger with more rain falling. Ac-
tually, hurricanes are large, revolv-
ing storms accompanied by violent,
destructive winds, high waves and
tides. They invariably develop over
water and are caused by atmos-
pheric disturbances near the equa-
tor. During the hot summer months,
just north of the equator there is a
belt of warm, moist and sultry air
which has been named "doldrums,"
taken from the word dole, meaning
listless. It is within these doldrums
that most hurricanes are started.

Counterclockwise Winds
Rain during these hot months re-
leases a great amount of heat. This
heat rises in a vertical column,
which may be set in circular motion
by opposing wind forces. In an at-
tempt to equalize the pressure, air
from all sides rushes in to fill the
void, creating high velocity winds.
Opposing winds set the column of
rising air in circular motion and a
hurricane begins to form. It may
immediately die or increase in size
and velocity and move along its path
of destruction for several weeks.
In the midst of the storm, the
winds whirl counterclockwise with
the highest speeds in a circular band
at the edge of the "eye" and ex-
tending out twenty to thirty miles or
more. In this area velocities may
reach 150 miles per hour with brief
gusts at even higher speeds.
At the center often there is a

Be sure to have gasoline in
your car. If electric power is
off, filling station may not be
able to operate pumps for
several days.
Check and secure everything
that might blow away or be
torn loose. Garbage cans, gar-
den tools, signs, porch furni-

all inside if possible.
Be sure that a window or door
can be opened on the lee side
of the house...... the side op-
posite the one facing the wind.
If the center or the "eye" of
the storm passes directly over,
there will be a lull in the wind
lasting from a few minutes to
half an hour or more. Stay in
a safe place. Make emergency
repairs during the lull, if ne-
cessary. but remember the
wind will return suddenly

LPG Tanks on Foredeck

Depict Shippers' Efforts

To Meet Refiner's Needs
Lago became aware of shippers'
efforts to keep up with the trend in
the refining business, particularly as
applied to the transportation of li-
quified petroleum gas, when the
Transoceanica docked at San Nico-
las Harbor June 29.
Transoceanica, a T-2 tanker, was
recently equipped in Jacksonville,
Florida, with two special 1495-barrel
capacity tanks for transporting li-
quified petroleum gas. The two LPG
tanks installed on the foredeck give
the ship an unusual appearance.
Liquified petroleum gas cannot be
transported in the regular ship tanks
with a low pressure. It must be
stored under pressure of 100 to 150
Increased interest of petroleum
refiners in liquified petroleum gas
reflects current demand for motor
and aviation gasoline. Liquified pet-
roleum gas is used as a pressurizing
agent in the refining process to in-
crease vapor pressure in motor and
aviation gasoline.
The Transoceanica, owned by the
Petrolera Transoceanica, S. A. flies
a Peruvian flag. The ship did not
have occasion to use its newly-in-
stalled LPG system at Lago and set
course to Talara, Peru, on July 1,
1964, with a motor and aviation
gasoline cargo.

small, cloudless core from five to
twenty miles across. This core is
called the eye. The area of destruc-
tive winds along the path of a hurri-
cane varies between twenty-five and
500 miles wide. A storm usually
moves about fifteen miles per hour.
Extra heavy rains during a storm
cause a lot of damage. Aruba's most
recent experience with water dam-
age, for example, was in 1954, when
heavy rains accompanying hurricane
Hazel caused inundation of lower-
lying areas in the northern and
western parts of the island.
The telltale signs of hurricanes in
the making are abnormalities of the
local weather such as brilliant, red
sunsets and winds from unusual di-
rections; appearance of a sheet of
massy clouds; a distinct ocean swell
with frequency two to four times
less than that of normal waves.
On the north coast of Aruba, for
example, waves normally reach the
shore every four to five seconds. The
presence of a hurricane may be sus-
pected if they arrive only every
twelve to fifteen seconds and if the
swell is correspondingly higher. A
drop in atmospheric pressure and
unusual heavy rains are also indica-
tions of hurricanes. The drop of the
barometer, however, does not begin
until twelve hours before the arrival
of the storm center.
None of these warning signs are
entirely reliable and they may fail
badly. Aruba does not have to rely
on these hurricane indications,
which were considered reliable be-
fore the application of science to
hurricane detection techniques. Aru-
ba, like other countries in the Carib-
bean, gets its hurricane warnings
from the United States Weather Bu-
reau. The Weather Bureau, with
forecast offices in San Juan, Miami,
New Orleans, Washington and Bos-
ton, sets up a special watch during
the hurricane season which starts in
August and runs through October.
The weather services of other Carib-
bean and West Indian countries co-
operate by making extra weather
Ships at sea also send more fre-
quent weather reports by radio. Spe-
cially equipped Air Force and Navy
planes patrol hurricane areas to lo-
cate developing storms and track
their movements. Besides planes, the
Weather Bureau also makes exten-
sive use of other equipment such as
radar and picture taking weather
The coming of the hurricane sea-
son is a good time to consider the
safety precautions and measures re-
commended for island residents when
such a storm is in progress.

Esso Sweden Dedicates Petrochemical

Installation Costing Fifty Million Dollars
Formal dedication of a $50 million petrochemical complex took place
recently in Stenungsund, a small fishing and resort town on one of the
deepest natural harbors on Sweden's west coast. Key facility in the
complex is the petrochemical steam cracker built by Esso Sweden,
affiliate of Standard Oil Company (New Jersey), at a cost of over $24

The dedication was attended by
400 invited guests, including His
Majesty, Gustaf VI, Swedish digni-
taries and officials of Esso Sweden
and other companies in the complex.
Jersey President M. J. Haider was
among the speakers.
Esso Sweden's petrochemical steam
cracker has a capacity of 55,000 tons
a year of ethylene which is piped to
the adjacent plants of two Swedish
companies, which process the ethy-
lene into polyethylene and ethylene-
oxide. These petrochemicals are, in
turn, further processed into house-
hold, industrial and construction pro-
ducts for the Swedish and other
Scandinavian markets.
Steam Cracker
The steam cracker, the first in
Sweden, was designed by Esso Res-
earch and Engineering Company,
and was built by Fluor Corporation.
It went on stream in mid-1963. Feed-
stock of naphtha for thq steam
cracker is supplied by Jersey Stand-
ard sources in Europe.
All companies involved in the
Stenungsund project went to great
lengths to preserve the natural
beauty and recreational and scenic
values of the area. The town, with
its 2000 inhabitants, has a history
extending back to the days of the
Vikings and, before that, to the
Bronze Age.
In a brief talk at the dedication

ceremonies. Mr. Haider said that the
petrochemical complex represented,
most importantly, a step toward self
sufficiency in vital chemicals for
Sweden. It will also have a stimula-
ting effect on the Swedish economy
as well as saving the country's for-
eign exchange, Mr. Haider said.

Lago Marine Department efforts
were instrumental in getting Aruba
its share of this increasing business.
Ship painting in Aruba is done by
marine contractor Joseph Oduber
with Lago acting as coordinator. The
shippers supply all the necessary
material and the contractor provides
the labor and equipment. So far Mr.
Oduber has completed the painting
of four Esso tankers: Esso Norfolk,
Balboa, Sao Paulo and Santos.
In painting the Esso Santos, for
example, thirty-three men were em-
ployed. They worked from 5:30 a.m
until 6:00 p.m. The job was com-
pleted in one and a half days.
Trying Task
Mr. Harry Fleming, foreman on
the job, said that the task is a try-
ing one and that not all men are
capable of doing actual painting
since they must be able to work
from narrow scaffolds dangling on
the side of the ship, sometimes more
than thirty feet above the water.
However, Mr. Fleming related that
for many of the former Lago em-
ployees their previous training and
experience has been significantly
useful in getting the job done He
added that some even had previous
experience working from high struc-
tures, making them especially well
suited for this kind of undertaking
