John Murray and

Julio Vrolijk

Lost: FIs. 250 .

Found: An Honest Man
Two hundred and fifty guilders means a lot to a young man
who is planning to get married... it means a lot to a married
man with ten children... HONESTY also means a lot to a man
to whom ten children turn to for a good example. It is his belief
that "this world would be a better one to live in if there was
more fair dealing".
The young man, Julio Vrolijk of Magkem, lost two hundred and
fifty guilders. The married man with ten children, John J. Mur-
ray of Mechanical Department, found the money.
Mr. Murray said that when he found the money he put him-
self in the position of the loser suppose the loser had ten
children like himself?... he couldn't possibly afford to do with-
out the money...
With the help of a co-worker, M. Kelly, Mr. Murray found the
loser J. Vrolijk. Mr. Vrolijk immediately rewarded the finder.
Mr. Vrolijk who had already "written off" his loss when he
discovered that his wallet was missing, said that Mr. Murray
returned to him more than just Fls. 250. "John's noble gesture",
he said, "has re-affirmed my belief in a basic good side of peo-
ple. His family is very lucky to have him as their example. They
must be very proud." As Mr. Vrolijk uttred this last phrase, he
looked around the piping, drums and towers that surrounded
him: the background of this drama was No. 10 Viscosity Unit.
And with this Mr. Murray had won another supporter for his
credo of fair dealing.
Two hundred and fifty guilders means a lot to a young man
about to get married and who plans to make the downpayment
on his furniture... Two hundred and fifty guilders means a lot
to an older man with ten children to support... but HONESTY
also means a lot more to this man who has the responsibility of
setting an example for ten future citizens of Aruba.

Y Un H1omber Honrado
Dos ciento y cicuenta florin ta nifica hopi pa un hoben cu tin
plan pa casa... e ta nifica hopi pa un homber casa cu diez yiu...
HONRADEZ ta nifica hopi tambe pa un homber na kende diez
yiu ta mira pa un ehempel y kende ta kere cu "e mundo aki por
ta uno mehor pa biba aden si tabatin mas honradez."
E hoben Julio Vrolijk cu ta traha pa Magkem a perde dos cien-
to y cincuenta florin. E homber casa cu diez yiu tabata John J.
Murray di Departamento Mechanical, kende a haya e placa y a
debolbe na Sr. Vrolijk.
Sr. Murray a bisa cu ora el a haya e placa, el a pone su mes den
e position di esun cu a perde'le... supone cu e perdedor tambe
tabatin diez yiu mescos cu ne? Lo e no por a keda sin e placa ey.
Sr. Vrolijk kende ya a considera e placa perdi" ora el a des-
cubri cu el tabata falta su carter a bisa cu Sr. Murray a de-
bolbe'le mas cu solamente e Fls. 250. "John su gesto noble", el a
bisa, "a reafirma mi keremento den bondad basico di hende. Su
famia ta fortunado di por tin'e como nan ehempel. Nan mester
ta masha orgulloso." Mientras Sr. Vrolijk tabata papia e ultimo
palabranan aki, el tabata mira rond na e tuberia, drumnan y
towernan cu tabata rondona: e lugar di e drama aki tabata Vis-
cosity 'Unit No. 10. Y cu e acto aki, Sr. Murray a gana un otro
apoyador di su credo di trato husto.
Dos ciento y cincuenta florin ta nifica hopi pa un hoben cu ta
pa casa y kende tin plan pa haci un pago ariba su muebla .. Dos
ciento y cincuenta florin ta hopi mas pa un homber mas bieuw
cu tin diez yiu pa cria... pero HONRADEZ tambe ta nifica hopi
pa un homber kende tin e responsabilidad pa duna un bon ehem-
pel na diez future ciudadano di Aruba.

Lago's 50,000th Visitor
"49,997...... Welcome to Lago Sefhor Tromp...... 49,998..
Hello Buchinan.. 49.999..... How are you Papa John.... ."
Tour Leader Severiano Luydens was mentally counting the
visitors as he and PR/IR Manager B. E. Nixon welcomed the
members of a special Lago tour on May 17. The oldest member
of the group was the 78-year old Carlos Maduro and the young-
est was just a couple of years over 60. It was a tour of Lago
"..... 50,000 ...." and Mr. Luydens announced that Thomas
(Tony) Croes had become Lago's 50,000th visitor. With this
