Jersey Standard Forecasts An Increase

In Total Sales For The Year 1966
A forecast of highly encouraging growth in petroleum pro-
ducts sales abroad in 1966 and a description of Jersey Standard's
operational realignment are highlights of the annual report
mailed to the 728.000 shareholders of Standard Oil Company
(New Jersey).

Help Your Child Enjoy Vacation
With the coming Easter school vacation, the nearly 18,000
Aruba school children will have some two weeks of leisure and
gaiety away from school. This is a time of much activity both
around the house and at the various recreation areas.
Statistics show us that children are safer at school than at
Another statistic shows that boys are more likely than girls
to be involved in accidents. This was borne out by last year's in-
jury experience of Lago employee family members. The sons of
employees suffered 246 injuries in 1965. Their daughters sus-
tained only 101 injuries.
Many of the accidents happened during holiday periods,
depressing the occasion.
There's always a safe way to enjoy any vacation.
These pointers may be of help:
1. Climbing is one activity children like, but it may prove fatal.
2. Making fires outdoors may cause a disaster.
3. Swimming is healthy for children, but a guardian should be
around constantly.
4. Long exposures to the sun at the beach can cause serious sun-
burns and sunstroke.
5. Don't let children go boating without proper supervision and life-
saving equipment.
6. Hide-and-seek games? A lot of fun, but don't hide in empty re-
frigerators or boxes which may cause suffocation.
7. It's a natural thing for children to be on the run when playing.
However, falls and bumping into objects or into each other may
cause serious trouble.
8. Discourage children against walking or running with objects in
their mouth.
9. Warn children against playing with sharp objects.
10. Horseplay on the road or unsafe cycling can be a dangerous
11. When children play outdoors, make sure they wear shoes.
12. Don't let young children roam about without supervision.
13. Keep poisonous substances out of children's reach, especially now
that they have more time to explore.

Yuda Bo Yiu Qoza su Vakantie
Vacacion di Pascu Grandi pa school ta cuminza, y casi 18,000
much di school na Aruba lo tin dos siman di libertad y alegria
como no tin school. Lo ta dianan di hopi actividad tantu rond di
cas como na e lugarnan caminda tin various facilidad di recreo.
Estadisticanan ta proba nos cu muchanan na school ta mas
sigur cu na cas.
Otro punto di estadistica ta mustra nos cu much hombernan
tin mas probabilidad di hanja desgracia cu much muher. Prue-
ba di esaki ta e cifranan di anja pasi mustrando cuanto miem-
bro di famia di empleadonan di Lago a hanja herida. Mucha
hombernan a worde herida 246 biaha na 1965; much muhernan
a hanja solamente 101 herida.
Hopi desgracia a socede durante dianan di vacacion, y dianan
liber, kitando alegria di e temporada.
Semper tin un manera sigur di goza cualkier vacacion.
E sugerencianan cu ta sigi aki por yuda:
1. Subimento na cualkier caminda ta cos cu much gusta haci, pero
nan por cai cu resultado fatal.
2. Cende candela pafor di cas por causa un desastre.
3. Landamentu ta bon pa salu di much, pero mester tin tur ora un
hende grand pa tira bista riba nan, tur ora bai.
4. Ora hende keda much tempu den solo nan por hanja zonnesteek
of por kimi di mas.
5. No permit muchanan bai den boto sin hende cu por mira bon pa
nan, y percura pa nan tin abordo equipo di salba bida.
6. Hunga cacu scondi? Esey ta un wega gracioso, pero e muchanan
no mester sconde den refrigerator of den caha caminda nan por
7. Ta masha natural cu muchanan ta coriendo ora nan ta hungando.
Pero nan mester tene cuidao pa no dal cu cosnan den caminda,
nan por cai, dal un cu otro, resultando den desgracia serio.
8. Desconseha muchanan di core of cana cu cos den nan boca.
9. Avisa e muchanan cu nan no master hunga cu obhetonan skerpi.
10. Hunga riba caminda of core bicicleta sin tuma precaucion of sin

For Peace of Mind, Say "Ah"
Good health is a priceless possession. It's worth preserving.
Certainly, but who likes being injected with a doctor's needle
or seeing some of his blood go in a test tube?
Unpleasant ?
Yes. But what are the rewards?

Well, it may save your life.
Also, it gives you peace of mind
to know you are in good health.
In addition, healthy persons
help make a healthy and dyna-
mic community.
To help preserve this price-
less personal possession, Lago
examines each employee about
every two years. This check
may bring to light a developing
though unnoticed ailment. Most
ailments are easy ta treat in the
early stages, but delay may be
critical in some cases. There
have been many examples of the
real benefits the examinations
brought to the over 1000 em-
ployees who were examined last

Materials Division is Supply Life Line

Helping Lago Refinery Operate Smoothly
One vital operation of any industrial complex concerns the
supply of all kinds of parts, tools and materials for the steady
operation of its units and facilities.
Mechanical's Materials Division is that supply "lifeline" that
helps keep the refinery units at Lago running to meet competi-

tion. The heartbeat of one unit
may falter and even fail for
lack of a vital part. It's there-
fore the basic task of the Mate-
rials Division to have the parts,
tools, equipment and materials
available wherever needed.
Instrumental in its manifold
operations are over one hundred
men and women of the Division
who have to do careful plan-
ning, coordination and decision
making to keep the supply line
moving. The operations may in-
clude the handling of heavy and
bulky equipment like vessels
towering some 30 feet high and
15 feet in diameter or some-
thing like a 1'" copper tack.
The yearly business handled
by the Division is about six mil-
lion dollars, but the lack of some
essential part may cause the
shutdown of a unit at a consi-
derable loss. Therefore, some
41,000 stock items worth 3.2
million dollars are kept on hand.
These include general supply
items and spares for equipment
used throughout the concession.
Organizationally, the Mate-
rials Division consists of four
sections: Procurement & Cata-
loguing, Operations, Commissa-
ry and Community Services.
The 25-man personnel of Pro-
curement & Cataloguing, under
Regional Supervisor K. T.
Wong, are responsible for de-

i Sm

ciding when and where to place
orders, for checking on competi-
tive prices with suppliers, for
follow-ups and for keeping pro-
per records of the many thou-
sands of items.
A many-sided function is per-
formed by the 34 men of Opera-
tions Section, which is under Re-
gional Supervisor J. A. Abra-
hams. They receive, store, issue
and deliver the materials. The
Operations Section is divided in
two groups: Cargo Receiving,
Shipping and Materials Delivery
System; and Stores and Sales
The supply line is maintained
by four deliverymen who are the
important links with plant and
office operations.
A constant responsibility of
the Operations Section is to keep
the materials in good condition
while in storage. One way they
achieve this is by plastic coating
some of the materials in a dip-

tank. Others are provided with
protective wrapping.
The division has four main
storage places in various loca-
tions with a total area of
750,000 square feet. The two-
story west wing of the main
Storehouse building contains
some 19,000 items. The ware-
house on the south across the
street has some 16,000 stock
items and a special electrical
and instrument supply section.
A vast area of over 600,000
square feet is the Pipe Yard or
Location 70. Here lumber,
bricks, oils, gases, pipes in var-
ious sizes, lengths and shapes,
loading hoses, furnace tubes up
to 80 feet long and appropria-
tion materials are stored. An-
other location is the Cable Yard
rear the Garage where many
miles of electric cables are kept.
The various warehouses of the
Operations Section have a total
of 120,000 square feet.
The two other sections of the
Materials Division are the Com-
missary, headed by Leslie A.
Lejuez, and the Seroe Colorado
Community Services, under Ru-
oy H. Yzer.
The Materials Division is pre-
sently headed by Charles A.
Stewart, recently named as the
new comptroller of Esso Pappas
in Greece.

S. JANSEN is in charge of
filling orders for office sup-
