. WE GRATEFULLY DEDICATE THIS BQOK We, the graduating class of l954, are proud to dedicate this year book to Mr, Axlerod and Mr. Hayes, Kensington's co-assistant principals, to express our appreciation and gratitude for their unselfish and unbiased administration. These two noble men have collaborated with harmony because they have astonishingly similar ideals of education. Mr. Axlerod believes that the purpose of an educa- tion is "to develop a responsible citizen", Mr. Hayes, that it is "to enable one to take a responsible place in a democracy." Mr. Axlerod is happy about his transfer to Kensington last year, he considers it a wonderful experience with the children and faculty. Partici- pating in sports himself and deeply interested in people, he urges students to strive for scholarships, to "become identified with the community through political, social, athletic, and religious activities." Mr. Axlerod loves outdoor life, camping, chess, and television and enjoys summer with his family at the lakeshore. He is doing graduate work at the Uni- versity of Buffalo for a Doctorate in Education. We shall always remember the faith Mr. Axlerod has in the modern generation, his belief that we are healthier, better informed and educated, better behaved, and likely to become better persons than our predecessors. All through our lives we shall respect his high ideals and persistently weave them into our pattern of life, Mr. Hayes has been very successful in arousing our enthusiasm for the democratic and social func- tions of our school. His interests lie in sports, records, and young people, his educational pursuits include earning a Doctor of Education degree at the University of Buffalo. Sincerely, he believes that our generation is more generous, enthusiastic, and interested in various activities than his own and is comparably cooperative and willing. All through the year he has been an advisor, an exponent of democracy, and a friend. What we have learned from his examples of indefatigable endeavor, initiative, cooperation, and perseverance manifested by the dances, attractive cafeteria dec- orations, and the formation of a Student Council, we shall practice in the future. We have assumed the responsibilities related to these privileges. This is in accordance with Mr. Hayes' theory of education: "The success of our educational pro- gram is determined by the success with which our young people are trained to take their places as morally, socially, and civically responsible citizens in a democracy. To succeed in this aim the school should teach democracy not merely by precept but also by example." When we leave Kensington we will take all our precious memories with us. Among these will be the kindness, helpfulness, consideration, and under- standing of Mr. Axlerod and Mr. Hayes. With their moral support backing our generation we shall face the challenge of life without fear. "The words of a man's mouth are deep waters, The fountain of wisdom is a gushing stream."

INTRODUCTION TO THE THEME THIS YEAR, "WATER AND ITS IMPORTANCE TO MAN THROUGH THE AGES" IS THE THEME OF OUR YEARBOOK. THE BIBLE SAYS, "lN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVEN AND THE EARTH. AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM, AND VOID: AND DARKNESS WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP. AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD MOVED UPON THE FACE OF THE WATERS." NOW, AS THEN, WATER IS OF PRIME IMPORTANCE TO MAN. LIFE AND WATER ARE INSEPARABLE. LIFE BEGAN IN THE PRIMEVAL SEA. THE MAJORITY OF LIVING THINGS ARE STILL IN THE OCEANS. OUR WORLD IS WHAT WATER HAS MADE IT. WATER CAN BE CALLED THE COMMON DENOMINATOR OF THE ENTIRE PHYSICAL WORLD - ACCOUNTING FOR SEVENTY PER CENT OF OUR BODIES. IT SUSTAINS AND NOURISHES ALL FORMS OF LIFE. A UNIOUE SOLVENT, IT IS AT THE HEART OF ALL CHEMISTRY AND INDUSTRY. A LEVELER OF MOUNTAINS AS WELL AS THE VERY MAKE-UP OF THE SEAS, WATER TO A LARGE EXTENT HAS DETERMINED WORLD GEOGRAPHY, AND THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC LIFE OF NATIONS. WATER-MAN HAS WORSHIPPED IT, TOLD TIME BY IT, CONTROLLED IT, MADE POWER FROM IT, DRUNK IT, AND SAILED ON IT. TODAY MAN FACES A SERIOUS PROBLEM - THE CONSERVATION OF WATER. RECKLESS WASTE AND SHAMEFUL POLLUTION HAVE DEPLETED HIS LIOUID RESOURCES. NOW HE MUST CONSERVE OR PERISH. WATER DOES NOT NEED MAN: BUT MAN CANNOT EXIST WITHOUT WATER. SO LONG AS MEN INHABIT THE EARTH, THEIR SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS WILL, IN A LARGE MEASURE. DEPEND UPON HOW WISELY AND HOW WELL THEY CONTROL AND USE WATER. Q O Q Zhu sv ' I ', ' ' fe . 9" .- N ... .
