INTRODUCTION TO THE THEME
THIS YEAR, "WATER AND ITS IMPORTANCE TO MAN THROUGH THE AGES" IS THE THEME OF OUR
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.

RULING THE VAST KINGDOM OF UNDERSEA LIFE IS THE POWERFUL AND EFFICIENT KING NEPTUNE.
HE SITS ON HIS THRONE HOLDING HIS WELL-KNOWN SYMBOL OF POWER, THE TRIDENT. FROM THIS
SEAT HE CAPABLY HANDLES ALL THE BUSINESS OF RULING HIS SEA KINGDOM, WHETHER IT BE DIS-
CIPLING MARINE LIFE OR STIRRING THE SEA INTO A TURMOIL.
SUCH EFFICIENCY IS PRESENT IN THE ADMINISTRATION OF KENSINGTON. OUR EDUCATORS
REMAIN IN THE BACKGROUND BUT LIKE NEPTUNE ARE EVER EXERTING A MOLDING FORCE. WE ARE
CONSTANTLY STIMULATED AND ENCOURAGED BY THEIR SKILLFUL GUIDANCE AS WE PASS THROUGH
THE TURBULENT STREAMS TOWARD KNOWLEDGE.
ON OUR VOYAGE, SOMETIMES CALM, SOMETIMES STORMY, WE LEARN METHODS THAT MAY
FACILITATE THE SOLUTIONS OF PROBLEMS THAT WILL PRESENT THEMSELVES IN THE FUTURE. THIS IS
A VAST UNCHARTED COURSE, BUT THE WATERS OF THESE STREAMS SERVE AS A MIGHTY FORMING
AND ENRICHING POWER. THE STREAMS OF KNOWLEDGE OFFER A LASTING AND CHALLENGING
MYSTERY. WE ARE FORTUNATE IN HAVING IN OUR SCHOOL THE SOUND, FIRM LEAD
NEPTUNE FURNISHES HIS KINGDOM.
AS THE WATERS OF THE OCEAN CONSTANTLY EBB AND FLOW, SO ARE WE PROGRESSINQ, TOWARD
THE MYSTERIOUS GULF OF FUTURE LIFE. THE FACULTY HAS PREPARED US TO FACE THE P
THE FUTURE AND FOR THIS THEY CERTAINLY DESERVE OUR HEARTFELT THANKS.
"MANY A GREEN ISLE NEEDS MUST BE
IN THE DEEP WIDE SEA."
