ADMINISTRATION 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. ERSHIP WHICH 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. ROBLEMS OF "MANY A GREEN ISLE NEEDS MUST BE IN THE DEEP WIDE SEA." 8

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 ... .
