Hobby of Mrs. Beerman Becomes

Rare Collection

What probably started as a
hobby eight years ago has
developed into a large collec-
tion of sea shells and a special
study by Mrs. Mieke Beerman.
With the aid of several refer-
ence books she has catalogued
practically all the shells.

She has about 60 trays of
all species and types of shells.
Most of them are from Aruba,
but she has quite a few from
Bonaire, Curacao, other is-
lands in the Caribbean suchas
Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Gre
nada, Cuba, and from faraway
places like Cambodia, Thai-
land, Hong Kong, Mexico,
Australia, Panama, Surinam,
Spain, Greece, France, Holland
and Florida (U.S.A.).

How did she get them?
Most of them she and her hus-
band, Dr. W. F. Beerman of
Lago Hospital, dived for them
themselves along Aruba’s
coast or during their vacations
abroad. She also swaps shells
with other collectors in Aruba
and abroad.

Using scuba diving equip-
ment, they at times go as
deep as 20 feet. Even then it
is not easy to find or recogn-
ize a shell, Mrs. Beerman re-
marks. "Some shells may look
like a piece of coral, but when

of Sea Shells

you turn them you notice the
animal inside,” she said.

It’s a lot of fun to dive for
shells, but the biggest job is
to clean them and classify
them. ’The catch from a div-
ing expedition of one hour
may require as much as eight
hours to get the shells in a
clean, preservable state,” Mrs.
Beerman explains.

Her collection of several
hundred shells represents a
little fortune and contains
some rare specimens that are
very valuable. One very spe-
cial shell, the cyprea surinam-

Submarine May Become Underwater
Workhorse for the Oil Industry

A small submarine may
eventually become a full-
fledged undersea work boat
for the oil industry in geo-
logical research.

Fifteen geologists of Hum-
ble Oil & Refining Company,
chief domestic affiliate of
Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey), have tried one, They
went to the bottom of the
Gulf of Mexico to study the
sea floor. They saw it with
their own eyes, studied it on
a television monitor, and
brought back undersea video-
tapes of what they had seen.
A little yellow submarine
made it all possible.

The geological research ex-
periment using the four-man
submersible "Shelf Diver”
took eight days. It is believ-
ed to be the first time an oil
company has used a_ sub-
marine for undersea research
of this type, and the first
time videotapes of the sea
bottom have been success-
fully filmed from a submarine.

Operating from an offshore
work boat equipped with
launch-and-recovery facilities,
the little 23-foot long sub-
marine made 11 dives to the
bottom of the Gulf in water
depths ranging from 200 to
more than 400 feet.

The geologists saw a var-
iety of bottoms” ranging
from soft mud to hard rock,
They reported that although
much of the bottom is flat

A diver emerges from a special

and expressionless similar to
the televised pictures of the
Moon’s surface, some areas
have good topographical ex-
pression where sea life flour-
ishes.

The undersea vehicle spent
a total of two and one-half
days submerged. Of this time,
37 hours were spent cruising
just off the sea bottom at a
speed of about one knot.
Other times, the submarine
rested on the bottom, Ob-
servers could study the un-
derwater areas through the
vehicle’s 25 ports. Visibility
was good as far as 50 feet
and occasionally up to 100
feet.

Eventually a submersible
might help map the sea floor,
explore for potential oil-
bearing structures, service
undersea wellheads and in-
stallations and assist in pipe-
line work. In addition, the
vehicle can carry geologists
to areas of interest in water
depths that exceed the pre-
sent practical diving limit.

They might also leave and
return to the sub while it is
near the sea floor, taking
rock samples and studying
rock outcrops, using scuba
gear. While the submarine
used on the Humble project
has this "diver lock-out cap-
ability,’ Humble dit not ex-
periment with scuba diving

Lago Helps Mold Technical Careers
Through One of Education Programs
For the sixteenth conse-
cutive year Lago is helping
technical students gain prac-
tical work experience in the
company. This experience is
required as an integral part
of their school curriculum.
To qualify for the comp-
any's Cooperative Education
Program, participants and
their parents should be resi-
dents of the Netherlands An-
tilles, and the students must
be currently enrolled in a
recognized professional or
technical school, Higher Tech-
nical School (HTS) or Ex-
tended Technical School
(UTS).
Lago's program also in-
cludes a transportation allow-
ance to students at the HTS
level or higher equivalent to
one round trip plane passage
from their school.
The second group of tech-
nical school students to be
trained at Lago this year be-
., i fBgrr-
gan their assignment during
the first week of November.
All studying in Holland, they
are: Ramfis Kolfin and Jose
M. Lacle, both mechanical
engineering students of the
HTS in Zwolle; Fermin P.
Coronel, a chemical engin-
eering student of the HTS
in Breda; and Edwin Croes,
who is studying electrical
engineering at the HTS in
Eindhoven.
During their six-month
training assignment these
young men will be rotated
in the various divisions of
the Mechanical Department.
They will receive a grant-in-
aid of Fls. 225 per four-week
period.
Three electrical engineer-
ing students from the local
UTS, John O. Banfield, Ireno
M. Yarzagaray and Dennis

shells and coral.
Hobby of Mrs. Beerman Becomes fl
Rare Collection of Sea Shells
What probably started as a
hobby eight years ago has
developed into a large collec-
tion of sea shells and a special
study by Mrs. Mleke Beerman.
With the aid of several refer-
ence books she has catalogued
practically all the shells
She has about 60 trays of
all species and types of shells.
Most of them are from Aruba,
but she has quite a few from
Bonaire, Curaao, other is.
lands in the Caribbean such as
Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Gre-
nada, Cuba, and from faraway
places like Cambodia, Thai-
land, Hong Kong, Mexico,
Australia, Panama, Surinam,
Spain, Greece, France, Holland
and Florida (U.S.A.).
How did she get them?
Most of them she and her hus-
band, Dr. W. F. Beerman of
Lago Hospital, dived for them
themselves along Aruba's
coast or during their vacations
abroad. She also swaps shells
with other collectors in Aruba
and abroad.
Using scuba diving equip-
ment, they at times go as
deep as 20 feet. Even then it
is not easy to find or recogn-
ize a shell, Mrs Beerman re.
marks. "Some shells may look
like a piece of coral, but when
you turn them you notice the
animal inside," she said.
It's a lot of fun to dive for
shells, but the biggest job is
to clean them and classify
them. "The catch from a div-
ing expedition of one hour
may require as much as eight
hours to get the shells in a
clean, preservable state," Mrs.
Beerman explains.
Her collection of several
hundred shells represents a
little fortune and contains
some rare specimens that are
very valuable. One very spe-
cial shell, the cyprea surinam-

sea floor. They saw it with
their own eyes, studied it on
a television monitor, and
brought back undersea video-
tapes of what they had seen.
A little yellow submarine
made it all possible.
The geological research ex-
periment using the four-man
submersible "Shelf Diver"
took eight days. It is believ-
ed to be the first time an oil
company has used a sub-
marine for undersea research
of this type, and the first
time videotapes of the sea
bottom have been success-
fully filmed from a submarine.
Operating from an offshore
work boat equipped with
launch-and-recovery facilities,
the little 23-foot long sub.
marine made 11 dives to the
bottom of the Gulf in water
depths ranging from 200 to
more than 400 feet.
The geologists saw a var-
iety of "bottoms" ranging
from soft mud to hard rock.
They reported that although
much of the bottom is flat
and expressionless similar to
the televised pictures of the
Moon's surface, some areas
have good topographical ex-
pression where sea life flour-
ishes.
The undersea vehicle spent
a total of two and one-half
days submerged. Of this time,
37 hours were spent cruising
just off the sea bottom at a
speed of about one knot.
Other times, the submarine
rested on the bottom. Ob-
servers could study the un-
derwater areas through the
vehicle's 25 ports. Visibility
was good as far as 50 feet
and occasionally up to 100
feet.
Eventually a submersible
might help map the sea floor,
explore for potential oil-
bearing structures, service
undersea wellheads and in-
stallations and assist in pipe-
line work. In addition, the
vehicle can carry geologists
to areas of interest in water
depths that exceed the pre-
sent practical diving limit.
They might also leave and
return to the sub while it is
near the sea floor, taking
rock samples and studying
rock outcrops, using scuba
gear. While the submarine
used on the Humble project
has this "diver lock-out cap-
ability," Humble dit not ex-
periment with scuba diving
from the sub.

Hobby of Mrs. Beerman Becomes

Rare Collection

What probably started as a
hobby eight years ago has
developed into a large collec-
tion of sea shells and a special
study by Mrs. Mieke Beerman.
With the aid of several refer-
ence books she has catalogued
practically all the shells.

She has about 60 trays of
all species and types of shells.
Most of them are from Aruba,
but she has quite a few from
Bonaire, Curacao, other is-
lands in the Caribbean suchas
Puerto Rico, Trinidad, Gre
nada, Cuba, and from faraway
places like Cambodia, Thai-
land, Hong Kong, Mexico,
Australia, Panama, Surinam,
Spain, Greece, France, Holland
and Florida (U.S.A.).

How did she get them?
Most of them she and her hus-
band, Dr. W. F. Beerman of
Lago Hospital, dived for them
themselves along Aruba’s
coast or during their vacations
abroad. She also swaps shells
with other collectors in Aruba
and abroad.

Using scuba diving equip-
ment, they at times go as
deep as 20 feet. Even then it
is not easy to find or recogn-
ize a shell, Mrs. Beerman re-
marks. "Some shells may look
like a piece of coral, but when

of Sea Shells

you turn them you notice the
animal inside,” she said.

It’s a lot of fun to dive for
shells, but the biggest job is
to clean them and classify
them. ’The catch from a div-
ing expedition of one hour
may require as much as eight
hours to get the shells in a
clean, preservable state,” Mrs.
Beerman explains.

Her collection of several
hundred shells represents a
little fortune and contains
some rare specimens that are
very valuable. One very spe-
cial shell, the cyprea surinam-

Submarine May Become Underwater
Workhorse for the Oil Industry

A small submarine may
eventually become a full-
fledged undersea work boat
for the oil industry in geo-
logical research.

Fifteen geologists of Hum-
ble Oil & Refining Company,
chief domestic affiliate of
Standard Oil Company (New
Jersey), have tried one, They
went to the bottom of the
Gulf of Mexico to study the
sea floor. They saw it with
their own eyes, studied it on
a television monitor, and
brought back undersea video-
tapes of what they had seen.
A little yellow submarine
made it all possible.

The geological research ex-
periment using the four-man
submersible "Shelf Diver”
took eight days. It is believ-
ed to be the first time an oil
company has used a_ sub-
marine for undersea research
of this type, and the first
time videotapes of the sea
bottom have been success-
fully filmed from a submarine.

Operating from an offshore
work boat equipped with
launch-and-recovery facilities,
the little 23-foot long sub-
marine made 11 dives to the
bottom of the Gulf in water
depths ranging from 200 to
more than 400 feet.

The geologists saw a var-
iety of bottoms” ranging
from soft mud to hard rock,
They reported that although
much of the bottom is flat

A diver emerges from a special

and expressionless similar to
the televised pictures of the
Moon’s surface, some areas
have good topographical ex-
pression where sea life flour-
ishes.

The undersea vehicle spent
a total of two and one-half
days submerged. Of this time,
37 hours were spent cruising
just off the sea bottom at a
speed of about one knot.
Other times, the submarine
rested on the bottom, Ob-
servers could study the un-
derwater areas through the
vehicle’s 25 ports. Visibility
was good as far as 50 feet
and occasionally up to 100
feet.

Eventually a submersible
might help map the sea floor,
explore for potential oil-
bearing structures, service
undersea wellheads and in-
stallations and assist in pipe-
line work. In addition, the
vehicle can carry geologists
to areas of interest in water
depths that exceed the pre-
sent practical diving limit.

They might also leave and
return to the sub while it is
near the sea floor, taking
rock samples and studying
rock outcrops, using scuba
gear. While the submarine
used on the Humble project
has this "diver lock-out cap-
ability,’ Humble dit not ex-
periment with scuba diving
