Principal Dean Thompson Earns
Doctorate at New York University

Not many scholars may
have earned their doctor’s de-
gree by dedicating their sum-
mer vacations for ten years to
go back to school, take some
twelve courses and prepare a
thesis.

Dean V. Thompson, super-
vising principal of the Seroe
Colorado School at Lago, did
just that. Since 1959 he has
spent four to six weeks of his
summer vacation at the New
York University every year
(except 1966). Last year he
turned in his thesis which was
approved in August. On Fri-
day, January 16, 1970 he suc-
cessfully defended his dissert-
ation before a 5-man doctoral
examining board of the New
York University. Officially,
Mr. Thompson will become Dr.
Thompson at graduation cer-
emonies this month when the
doctorate will be conferred.

His thesis is titled: "The
Effects of Relative Position in

Scalar Chain of Command in
a Corporate Organization on
the Types of Decisions Made
by a School Administrator.”
The thesis deals chiefly with
the dual function of the school
in his role of

administrator

Group of Lago Men Help Rebuild
West Pier in Record Time: 70 Days

In 70 days, the former Gas-
oline’ Dock No. 1 has been
completely reconstructed from
a wooden structure into a new
steel and concrete pier. Hence-
forth the pier will be called
West Pier.

Dismantling work on the old
Gasoline Dock started Novem-
ber 19, 1969. Actual construc-
tion of the new facility start-
ed December 8 last year while
the project was ready for use
on January 28, 1970.

Although scheduled for com-
pletion in 414 months, the



Assistant Operator Napoleon Wester receives a Fls. 50 check

from E. A. Eriksen, Process Foreman-Utilities, for winning

the safety slogan contest. His slogan was: ”Think Safety,

Act Safety and Enjoy ’70”. Looking on are (I to r): Safety

Adviser E, A. Beaujon, Shift Foreman F. Bebrout, and
Refining Division Supt, J. F. Mote.

West Pier was completed two
months earlier and at a lower
cost than the original estimate
of $500,000.

The new pier, which will be
able to accommodate tankers
up to 27,000 tons, will help as-
sure safer operations because
of its fireproof structure and
improved hose handling facili-
ties built as part of the struc-
ture.

While the two existing
mooring cells will be used, the
pier includes a new 35 feet
long, 16 feet wide, hose handl-
ing structure with a new con-
crete slab deck, new loading
manifold, pipe bank and new
stern mooring dolphin.

Connected to the pier are
some seven product lines to
load low-lead naphthas, kero-
sene, gas oil, diesel oil and
fuel oil. Drinking water and
ship’s bunkers will also be
available at the pier.

The West Pier has been
equipped with deballasting
facilities and slop recovery
system to control water pol-
lution.

A special feature to mini-
mize hose transfer operations
is the new manifold that has
been designed for clean load-
ings on the east side (naph-
tha, kerosene, gasoil) and dir-

Lago Provides Bunker Facilities
At H-Dock in Oranjestad Harbor

To assist in providing max-
imum bunker facilities for the
Oranjestad Harbor, Lago at
the end of last month complet-
ed the installation of bunker
lines at H-Dock. This was the
only dock which could not sup-
ply bunkers to the increasing
number of tourist and freight
ships calling at Oranjestad.

Completed in a record time
of about three weeks, the pro-
ject included laying a pipe
bank of four lines, 860 feet
long, consisting of one 10-inch
fuel oil line; one 8-inch marine
diesel oil line; one 4-inch gas-
oil line and one 1%-inch air
line.

Built at a cost of approxim-
ately $40,000, the work was
carried out under direction of
project leader Carlos Bislip of

Mechanical-Engineering. Con-
tractor for the project was

Visiting the Caribbean Trade Fair on board the Sunward

was Lago’s PR Administrator Oscar Antonette (2nd from

left), who is here with Fair Director R. F. Lankenau of the

Florida Dept. of Commerce (left picture). Also on exhibit
were large mobile homes on picture at right.

The ’Sunward” chartered by
the Norwegian Caribbean
Lines of Miami carried a spe-
cial load when she docked in
Oranjestad Harbor January 26.
One deck of the cruise ship
contained the Caribbean Trade
Fair, which is jointly sponsor-
ed by the Florida State Dep-
artment of Commerce and the
Norwegian Caribbean Lines.

Products of some _ thirty
companies from Florida com-
pletely lined the port and star-
board sides from bow to stern.
The products included building
and construction materials and
large items for the tourist in-
dustry, such as pleasure boats
and mobile homes.

On a 9-day tour of the Car-
ibbean islands, the Sunward
and fair already visited some
Caribbean ports and will stop
next in Curacao, Jamaica,

Haiti
Miami.

It’s the first time the ’’float-
ing fair” uses a bigger ship,
and the first time the Carib-
bean Trade Fair visited
Aruba.

before returning to

The business and industrial
representatives from Florida
were also looking for agents,
distributors and people inter-
ested in setting up joint ven-
tures on the islands they visit.

Open only to invited busin-
ess people for six hours, the
Caribbean Trade Fair was un-
der direction of R. F. Lanke-
nau of the Florida Department
of Commerce. Earlier in Jan-
uary, Mr. Lankenau and Mr.

ARUBA ESSO NEWS :

Parsons Corp. Promotes Safety Through Education, Protective Equipment

Like Lago, PARSONS COR-
PORATION — which carries
out the HDS Project — has a
vital interest in day-to-day
safety of its nearly 900 em-
ployees.

As members of the National
Safety Council and National
Constructors Association in the
United States, Parsons’ world-
wide safety records are re-
viewed annually by clients and
competitors. Year after year
Parsons has rankéd among the
top in lowest number of days
lost due to accidents.

"The keynote to Parsons
Safety Program is to eliminate
human suffering from acci-
dents and to promote maxi-
mum efficiency through safe
working methods and condi-
tions,” says Don Overose, Par-
sons’ Safety Engineer.

Education

Parsons has five field safety
inspectors to take the program
into the field. They observe
and correct safety infractions,
establish safety procedures be-

fore work starts in project
areas. They hold approxim-
ately 20 safety “talks” or

"tool box meetings” per week
to foremen and crews on job
sites. These informal 10-min-
ute sessions provide the work-
men with an opportunity to
express ideas and ask quest-
ions. The discussions also pro-
vide the basic building block
for an accident prevention pro-
gram.

The inspectors
all accidents involving men
and/or equipment to insure
proper first-aid treatment and
to take measures to prevent a
similar incident. Booklets, out-

investigate



lining proper procedures, are
distributed to foremen.

With the cooperation of La-
go, lunch-hour movies are pre-
sented on Mondays, Wednes-
days and Fridays to field fore-
men, covering some 200 separ-
ate safety topics during the
construction project.

Proper use of fire fighting
equipment is taught to key su-
pervisors at scheduled sessions
by the Lago Fire Section. As
construction of the new site
grows, the instruction pro-
gram will be expanded.

A First-Aid building was
placed on the project site in
November 1969, with a full-
time registered nurse in at-
tendance. When additional as-
sistance is required, the Par-
sons ambulance transfers the
patient to a hospital or doc-
tor’s office. To date there have
been no fatalities and no per-
manent injuries on the project.

Protective Equipment
Protective equipment issued
generally include’ a hard-hat,
goggles and gloves as well as
the finest tools. In particular,
welding requires additional
equipment such as _ leather
sleeves, special tinted helmet

shields, gloves, and shoe co-
vers.
Ironworkers, _ erecting a

building frame, are issued saf-
ety belts to guard against
falls.

Pedestrian Safety

For maximum pedestrian
safety, busses move up to 60
men at a time from the en-
trance gates to job sites at
starting time and back at

quitting time. Pickups provide
transportation to various job
locations during the day.



a
Safety shoes have been made available to Parsons Field
personnel at low cost. Payment can be made through pay-
roll deduction. Some 275 men have already taken advantage
of the offer. Here Parsons Warehousemen Gustave Williams

Chemical toilet units were placed in use the first time in
Aruba recently by Parsons Corporation on the HDS Project.
They, are approved by the U.S. Dept. of Health for use in all
50 states and foreign, government sponsored, construction
projects on locations where pressured running water or
plumbing facilities are not available. Every second day a
special tank truck pumps out the waste and replaces it with
fresh chemical disinfectant. The units are cleaned and
scrubbed inside daily: by a trained sanitation crew. At pre-
sent twelve units are in use and more will be added in the
future as the number of employees increases.

A surprise welcome was given Dr. D. V. Thompson Jan. 22 by the 8th graders under direc-

tion of Teacher Dorothy Joseph, who has been with the school faculty for over 16 years.

On this picture, Mrs. and Dr. Thompson joined the 8th graders along with the School’s
Secretary Miss Diana Arends in the lobby.

son. But, says Mr. Thompson,
he had other promoters as
well. They were his wife, Do-
ris, who was a constant source
of encouragement, and Miss
Diana Arends, the School’s
secretary who typed and re-
typed the 110-page thesis.

A graduate of Houghton
College in 1938, Mr. Thomp-
son obtained his Master's de-
gree in Education from Cor-
nell University in 1950.

He came to Lago on August
23, 1951 as principal of the
Lago Community Schools
which included a high school,
a grade school and a kinder-
garten. He brought along 13
years of experience in educa-
tion. From 1947 to 1951 he
had been supervising principal
of the Heuvelton Central
School in New York, with an
enrollment of 452 students.

In his more ‘than 18 years
with Lago, Mr. Thompson
saw many changes in the
school population, faculty and
facilities.

The Seroe Colorado School
now has 165 students from
kindergarten to the 9th grade
and the equivalent of twelve
fulltime teachers.

His doctorate secured and a
lifetime objective fulfilled, the
soon-to-be Dr. and Mrs. Thomp-
son plan to enjoy their first
summer vacation together
since 1958,

Principal Dean Thompson Earns
Doctorate at New York University

Not many scholars may
have earned their doctor’s de-
gree by dedicating their sum-
mer vacations for ten years to
go back to school, take some
twelve courses and prepare a
thesis.

Dean V. Thompson, super-
vising principal of the Seroe
Colorado School at Lago, did
just that. Since 1959 he has
spent four to six weeks of his
summer vacation at the New
York University every year
(except 1966). Last year he
turned in his thesis which was
approved in August. On Fri-
day, January 16, 1970 he suc-
cessfully defended his dissert-
ation before a 5-man doctoral
examining board of the New
York University. Officially,
Mr. Thompson will become Dr.
Thompson at graduation cer-
emonies this month when the
doctorate will be conferred.

His thesis is titled: "The
Effects of Relative Position in

Scalar Chain of Command in
a Corporate Organization on
the Types of Decisions Made
by a School Administrator.”
The thesis deals chiefly with
the dual function of the school
in his role of

Group of Lago Men Help Rebuild
West Pier in Record Time: 70 Days

In 70 days, the former Gas-
oline’ Dock No. 1 has been
completely reconstructed from
a wooden structure into a new
steel and concrete pier. Hence-
forth the pier will be called
West Pier.

Dismantling work on the old
Gasoline Dock started Novem-
ber 19, 1969. Actual construc-
tion of the new facility start-
ed December 8 last year while
the project was ready for use
on January 28, 1970.

Although scheduled for com-
pletion in 414 months, the



Assistant Operator Napoleon Wester receives a Fls. 50 check

from E. A. Eriksen, Process Foreman-Utilities, for winning

the safety slogan contest. His slogan was: ”Think Safety,

Act Safety and Enjoy ’70”. Looking on are (I to r): Safety

Adviser E, A. Beaujon, Shift Foreman F. Bebrout, and
Refining Division Supt, J. F. Mote.

West Pier was completed two
months earlier and at a lower
cost than the original estimate
of $500,000.

The new pier, which will be
able to accommodate tankers
up to 27,000 tons, will help as-
sure safer operations because
of its fireproof structure and
improved hose handling facili-
ties built as part of the struc-
ture.

While the two existing
mooring cells will be used, the
pier includes a new 35 feet
long, 16 feet wide, hose handl-
ing structure with a new con-
crete slab deck, new loading
manifold, pipe bank and new
stern mooring dolphin.

Connected to the pier are
some seven product lines to
load low-lead naphthas, kero-
sene, gas oil, diesel oil and
fuel oil. Drinking water and
ship’s bunkers will also be
available at the pier.

The West Pier has been
equipped with deballasting
facilities and slop recovery
system to control water pol-
lution.

A special feature to mini-
mize hose transfer operations
is the new manifold that has
been designed for clean load-
ings on the east side (naph-
tha, kerosene, gasoil) and dir-

Lago Provides Bunker Facilities
At H-Dock in Oranjestad Harbor

To assist in providing max-
imum bunker facilities for the
Oranjestad Harbor, Lago at
the end of last month complet-
ed the installation of bunker
lines at H-Dock. This was the
only dock which could not sup-
ply bunkers to the increasing
number of tourist and freight
ships calling at Oranjestad.

Completed in a record time
of about three weeks, the pro-
ject included laying a pipe
bank of four lines, 860 feet
long, consisting of one 10-inch
fuel oil line; one 8-inch marine
diesel oil line; one 4-inch gas-
oil line and one 1%-inch air
line.

Built at a cost of approxim-
ately $40,000, the work was
carried out under direction of
project leader Carlos Bislip of

Mechanical-Engineering. Con-
tractor for the project was

Florida Dept. of Commerce (left picture). Also on exhibit
were large mobile homes on picture at right.

The ’Sunward” chartered by
the Norwegian Caribbean

cial load when she docked in
Oranjestad Harbor January 26.
One deck of the cruise ship
contained the Caribbean Trade
Fair, which is jointly sponsor-

Products of some _ thirty
companies from Florida com-
pletely lined the port and star-
board sides from bow to stern.
The products included building
and construction materials and
large items for the tourist in-
dustry, such as pleasure boats
and mobile homes.

On a 9-day tour of the Car-
ibbean islands, the Sunward
and fair already visited some
Caribbean ports and will stop
next in Curacao, Jamaica,

Haiti
Miami.

It’s the first time the ’’float-
ing fair” uses a bigger ship,

bean Trade Fair visited
Aruba.

vital interest in day-to-day
safety of its nearly 900 em-
ployees.

As members of the National
Safety Council and National
Constructors Association in the
United States, Parsons’ world-
wide safety records are re-
viewed annually by clients and
competitors. Year after year
Parsons has rankéd among the
top in lowest number of days
lost due to accidents.

"The keynote to Parsons
Safety Program is to eliminate
human suffering from acci-
dents and to promote maxi-
mum efficiency through safe
working methods and condi-
tions,” says Don Overose, Par-
sons’ Safety Engineer.

Education

Parsons has five field safety
inspectors to take the program
into the field. They observe
and correct safety infractions,
establish safety procedures be-

fore work starts in project
areas. They hold approxim-
ately 20 safety “talks” or

"tool box meetings” per week
to foremen and crews on job
sites. These informal 10-min-
ute sessions provide the work-
men with an opportunity to
express ideas and ask quest-
ions. The discussions also pro-
vide the basic building block
for an accident prevention pro-
gram.

The inspectors
all accidents involving men
and/or equipment to insure
proper first-aid treatment and
to take measures to prevent a
similar incident. Booklets, out-

investigate



lining proper procedures, are
distributed to foremen.

With the cooperation of La-
go, lunch-hour movies are pre-
sented on Mondays, Wednes-
days and Fridays to field fore-
men, covering some 200 separ-
ate safety topics during the
construction project.

Proper use of fire fighting
equipment is taught to key su-
pervisors at scheduled sessions
by the Lago Fire Section. As
construction of the new site
grows, the instruction pro-
gram will be expanded.

A First-Aid building was
placed on the project site in
November 1969, with a full-
time registered nurse in at-
tendance. When additional as-
sistance is required, the Par-
sons ambulance transfers the
patient to a hospital or doc-
tor’s office. To date there have
been no fatalities and no per-
manent injuries on the project.

Protective Equipment
Protective equipment issued
generally include’ a hard-hat,
goggles and gloves as well as
the finest tools. In particular,
welding requires additional
equipment such as _ leather
sleeves, special tinted helmet

shields, gloves, and shoe co-
vers.
Ironworkers, _ erecting a

building frame, are issued saf-
ety belts to guard against
falls.

Pedestrian Safety

For maximum pedestrian
safety, busses move up to 60
men at a time from the en-
trance gates to job sites at
starting time and back at

quitting time. Pickups provide
transportation to various job
locations during the day.

Chemical toilet units were placed in use the first time in
Aruba recently by Parsons Corporation on the HDS Project.
They, are approved by the U.S. Dept. of Health for use in all
50 states and foreign, government sponsored, construction
projects on locations where pressured running water or
plumbing facilities are not available. Every second day a
special tank truck pumps out the waste and replaces it with
fresh chemical disinfectant. The units are cleaned and
scrubbed inside daily: by a trained sanitation crew. At pre-
sent twelve units are in use and more will be added in the
future as the number of employees increases.

A surprise welcome was given Dr. D. V. Thompson Jan. 22 by the 8th graders under direc-

tion of Teacher Dorothy Joseph, who has been with the school faculty for over 16 years.

On this picture, Mrs. and Dr. Thompson joined the 8th graders along with the School’s
Secretary Miss Diana Arends in the lobby.

son. But, says Mr. Thompson,
he had other promoters as
well. They were his wife, Do-
ris, who was a constant source
of encouragement, and Miss
Diana Arends, the School’s
secretary who typed and re-
typed the 110-page thesis.

A graduate of Houghton
College in 1938, Mr. Thomp-
son obtained his Master's de-
gree in Education from Cor-
nell University in 1950.

He came to Lago on August
23, 1951 as principal of the
Lago Community Schools
which included a high school,
a grade school and a kinder-
garten. He brought along 13
years of experience in educa-
tion. From 1947 to 1951 he
had been supervising principal
of the Heuvelton Central
School in New York, with an
enrollment of 452 students.

In his more ‘than 18 years
with Lago, Mr. Thompson
saw many changes in the
school population, faculty and
facilities.

The Seroe Colorado School
now has 165 students from
kindergarten to the 9th grade
and the equivalent of twelve
fulltime teachers.

His doctorate secured and a
lifetime objective fulfilled, the
soon-to-be Dr. and Mrs. Thomp-
son plan to enjoy their first
summer vacation together
