social surroundings. As suggested by many man-
agement members, small, closely-knit parties are
being held in place of the huge. annual manage-
ment party. The first was held Sept. 25 in the
Papiamento Room of the Aruba Caribbean Hotel.
The second will be held Oct. 23 and will be fol-
lowed by a third in November. The parties will
continue in January and during the heavy tourist
season will be barbecue affairs. Plans provide
that each permanent member of management will
attend one dinner in the Papiamento Room and
one barbecue during the next twelve months.
It is felt that the small, team parties will help
retain the ties anl close associations established
in phase one of ODL teamwork. The small groups
allow an atmosphere of free flowing communica-
tions, and on the fellowship side the evening af-
fairs provide a good reunion of groups and

THE EVENING began with a social hour in the hotel's Papiamento
Room. Here old teammates met and renewed experiences. At the comple-
tion of the dinner, President W. A. Murray extended his greetings. Dinner

Aruba's New Industrialization Formula

Works for Aruba Chemical Industries
Aruba's formula for industrialization might very well be: LF +
AEE + AW + AL equals new industries.
The important components in this formula are Lago fuel, Aruba
electrical energy, water and labor. While all the ingredients in this
formula are equally important in attracting new industries to Aruba,

BAGGING AND storing operation at ACI marks the end of production
cycle which began with the preparation of fuel gas from Lago.
YENAMENTO Y wardamento di e saconan na ACI ta fin di e ciclo, cual

Mr Geerman began with an ex-

a result of great changes in tempe-
ratiues and pressures on the earth
and sea ages ago He then told how
some of the wells formed as much
as four miles under the earth's crust
or the approximate distance from
the Tele-Aruba studios to Dakota
Then, using the equipment, he ex-
plained that by heating to increas-
ingly higher temperatures the differ-
ent products are vaporized and then
ronlensed into liquid form. He fur-
ther demonstrated some of the qua-
lities of such products as gasoline,
and kerosene. Mr. Geerman dealt
primarily with the initial distillation
process, but mentioned in passing
that further processing was neces-
sary to arrive at the different types
