consideration of each application and selection of schools. na colegio na September 1966
Interested employees may apply through their respective de- bao di e Programa di Lago pa

apartments or obtain application
forms from Rosendo Nicolaas
of the Training Division. In this
program, Lago's primary con-
cern is in helping interested em-
ployees study chemical engin-
eering, but other fields of study
will receive consideration.
To be selected for the LEAP,
the employee must have demon-
strated commendable job per-
formance and indicated strong
interest in university training.
Considerations affecting selec-
tion are the need at Lago for
particular professional skills,
the applicant's proposed course
of study, acceptance at a re-
cognized university with a rea-
sonable assurance that this level
of education can be completed,
and potential of the candidate.
For students who are accept-
ed into the program, Lago gives
college preparatory training to
help prepare and orient them as
future students in college.

sale and will be available on a
"first come, first served" basis.
The new procedure helps pro-
vide a more equitable arrange-
ment for many office workers,
process shift workers and other
employees who do not have
transportation during working
hours to go to the Reclamation
Yard. All employees now have
an equal opportunity to pur-
chase whatever non-priority
surplus materials would be use-
ful to them.
Sales of the controlled items
such as desks, chairs, tables,
kitchen sinks, light fixtures and
lavatory basins and bowls, will
also be affected. Signing for
and pick-up of these items will
also be scheduled for Saturday
When an employee makes a
request for a controlled item to

Diasabra Lo Ta Dia

the reclamation supervisor, his
name, department and request
date are entered in a log book.
As the material becomes avail-
able, a memorandum is mailed
to the first employee on the log
list for that item.
In the past, the employee was
required to arrange for trans-
portation and pick up the item
within three days after receipt
of notification. If this was not
done, the second man on the list
was notified.
Now, the employee has until
the second Saturday following
notification. This provides, in
some cases, as much as two
weeks to arrange for transport-
ing the controlled item.
Controlled items, like the non-
priority items, will all be distri-
buted on Saturday mornings.

The Bomb: A Riddle out of Aruba's Past

Divers Uncover 'Part' of


An unrecorded event out of Aruba's
past came to light recently to produce
a curious riddle.
Results included a mission for the
Dutch Marines, underwater adventures,
much speculation and, finally, a giant
banquet for seagulls.
But the riddle of the aerial bomb,
discovered about 150 yards offshore be-
hind Lago's General Office Building,
remains unsolved.
The entire chain of events bore more
than a slight resemblance to a Holly-
wood suspense film and, in the final
stages, played to a large crowd of spec-
tators who lined the Rogers Beach
Leading players in the "drama" in-
cluded vacationing students Win Ny-
strom and Liz van Ogtrop, with the
Savaneta Marines cast in strong sup-
porting roles.
The bomb was discovered for the
second time on Saturday, August 28,
when Win, Liz and Mr. and Mrs. Ny-
strom were out for an afternoon of
skindiving. Reportedly, the bomb had
been sighted earlier in the summer by
another diver, but not much credence
was given to his claim.
Upon surfacing, Win mentioned to his
father that he and Liz had sighted what
looked like a bomb. On Sunday, Mr.
Nystrom accompanied his son to the
35 foot depth to help determine the na-
ture of the object. Ii looked enough like
an aerial bomb to prompt a call on Mon-
day to the Savaneta Marines.
Meanwhile, rumors of the discovered
bomb spread throughout the island com-
munity. Newspaper, radio and TV news-
men reported the discovery and at-
tempted to determine its origin. Many
persons could recall the events sur-
rounding the attack of the German U-
Boat 156, but none could remember any
aerial activity on that side of the island.
But, as was determined by the Marine
underwater demolition crew, it defi-
nitely was an aerial bomb and not a

Pero e misterio di e bom di avion cu a ser descubri como 150

ser solucioni.
Henter e cadena di events tabata parce un poco manera un
pelicula di suspension di Hollywood, y e ultimo partinan a ser

(Continued from payc 5)
Perhaps no one will ever know
the real origin, but one fact is
worthy of consideration: The
nose was pointed directly at La-
go's giant cat cracker.
On Wednesday morning the
Marines landed at Rogers
Beach. The large truck with the
word "Explosieven" in imposing
black letters served as a mag-
net to attract numerous Seroe
Colorado residents. The gather-,
ing was complimented by Lago
policemen and representatives
of various newspapers. The
scene was set, the audience in
place and two boats moved out
towards the target area.
