Company Announces Annual Year-End Contribution and Thrift Fund Earnings

Year-End Contribution
For the 32nd consecutive year
Lago Management has approved
an additional contribution to the
Thrift Foundation. The company
has credited the Thrift Plan ac-
count of each participant with
52 cents for every guilder he
contributed during the twelve
months ending October 31,
1971, with a guaranteed mini-
mum of FIs 300 for each parti-
cipant contributing 10% for the
full 12-month period.

This year-end contribution has
been again made available for
a special Christmas withdrawal.

Each employee has been given
the option of withdrawing up to
two-thirds of the company's
1971 additional contribution to
his Thrift account.

Thrift Earnings

The Lago Thrift Foundation
has announced earnings of
5.8% for 1971. Fund earnings
will be distributed at this rate
to each Thrift Fund participant's
account based on his average
credit balance in the Foundation
during the year ending Septem-
ber 30, 1971.

a senior engineer. In 1969, he
was assigned to the General

remained until 1970 when he
transferred to Mechanical-M&C-

tenance supervisor. In February

First Popular Art
Preceded by the gay rhythms
of two local steelbands, Aruba's
first Popular Art Exhibition was
officially opened at the Socie-
dad Bolivariana Club on Satur-
day, November 13.
In front of the building a
large crowd listened to opening
remarks of Drs. R. A. Romer,
head of the Central Govern-
ment's Department of Culture &
Education, who invited the
guests to view the large array
of local arts and crafts.
Sponsored by the Department
of Culture & Education, the ex-
hibition featured 309 art works
of 125 amateur artists of 18
years up. During the nine days
of the display, over 13,000 visi-
tors were attracted to the ex-
hibition. Many returned to see
it again, impressed by the
achievements of our local talents.
Lining the many panel boards
in the club were over fifty pain-
tings and collages on a variety
of subjects. Wall plaques, de-
corated with flowers or other
designs made -of fish scales,
bread, rice, cans and fishbones
served as a backdrop for the
many other handicrafts which
included elaborate lamps, sea
shell designs, ceramics, clay
sculptures, wood and coconut

Very significant was the fact
that of the 125 participants, al-
most 80 were native Arubans,
which indicates the many dor-
mant talents on the island.
Organizer of Aruba's first
Popular Art Exhibition, Mr. Hu-
bert Booi, head of the Aruba
Department of Culture & Edu-
cation, who was assisted by Ito
Tromp, considers the exhibition
a big success. He commented
that the overwhelming participa-
tion and the enthusiastic crowds
have proved that more should
be done to further promote and
stimulate the artistic abilities on
the island.

Vacation Savings Plan

Po icy Is Amended

Effective December 1
The Vacation Savings Plan
provides that employees can
contribute from 1% to 4% of
their normal earnings, and the
Company will match this with
the same amount.
An amendment to the Plan
effective December 1, 1971 sti-
pulates that it will no longer be
necessary for an employee to
contribute to the Plan in order
to get the Company contribution.

Employee Contribution

Employees are not required
to make a contribution, but may
do so if they desire. On a new
authorization-for-deduction card,
each employee must indicate
whether he wishes to contribute
or not. This card should be re-
turned to Comptroller's Com-
pact Section by December 8,
1971. If an employee decides
not to contribute at this time,
but changes his mind later on,
he can start his contribution
again any time after June 1,

Company Contribution

The Company will credit each
VSP account with 4% of the
employee's normal earnings.
This will be done even if the
employee does not contribute
or contributes less than 4%.

Vacation Savings Plan Refunds

An employee can now claim
a Vacation Savings Plan refund
twice per year in addition to the
time he Jakes a vacation of at
least one week. This means that
an employee can claim VSP
refund four times per year (two
in conjunction with vacation and
two unrelated to vacation). Em-
ployees may obtain the VSP re-
fund application card (GE-101)
from their supervisors.

exclusively local raw material
has now become a reality.
Three types of skin creams, the
"All Purpose Face Cream and
Burn Balm", the "Suntan
Cream" and the "Burn Balm"
made from the well-known Aru-
ban Aloe plant, are now on the
market under the name "Fleur
D'Aloe". These products are
available in attractively finished
aluminum tubes.

Since 1970 these products
are manufactured and packaged
in Aruba by the Aruba Aloe
Balm, NV. Established in 1967,
Aruba Balm's initial activities
consisted mainly of research
work to develop a high quality
finished product.

Known for its beneficial ef-
fect on the human skin, the Aloe
gel extract in the "Fleur D'Aloe"
creams gives them the medici-
nal property of healing the skin
and relieving pain and discom-
fort from sun and fire burns.
These creams are manufactured
from Aloe Mucin powder which
is extracted from the gel of the
aloe leaves.

Recently, members of the
press, radio and TV were in-
vited by the Management of the
Aruba Aloe Balm to view its
production facilities housed in
an especially designed labora-
tory at Nassaustraat No. 5.
