Came In Peace joe' All Mankind" DEDICATION
A new age began when man first stepped on the moon's
surface at 10:56.20 p.m. on July 20, 1969.
Many of the millions who watched the televised image of
Neil Armstrong, setting foot on the lunar, soil, had a pro-
found sense that the earth would never quite be the same
again. Neitherwould be the moon.
On July 20, 21, Tranquility Base, which they inhabited for
21 lf 2 hours, became man's first temporary settlement in
a new world.
Apollo 11 was more than an epic voyage culminating in a
dramatic landing on the moon. It was also a new act of self-
discovery and a further extension of man's efforts to learn
more about himself and his universe. The gift of knowledge
may be the greatest achievement of the Apollo 11 mission.
We at McKinley salute Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and
Mike Collins, for their part in trying to bring the world a
little closer together. We salute their efforts in the quest
for knowledge and adventure 5 but most of all we appreciate
their efforts towards world peace--the ideals of the Age of
Aquarius. To these three heroes of our own age, we dedi-
cate our yearbook.

"TO DREAM- THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM"
Mc KINLEY SALUTES THE METS
They did it! An impossible dream became a fact! The
feeling of joy and pride can't be expressed in words. Only
a few years ago we were dreaming about this great accom-
plishment. Now on Oct. 21, 1969 The New York Mets really
became the world champions. -
We put all our faith in them and we were hoping for the
best. The victory of the Mets represents something very
meaningful to all of us. It is the dream of a new day where
the impossible dreams become reality. The faith inthe men,
the will to go again even if we lose the first time is the
beginning of the future where all mankind will win the game
and accomplish its dreams. Susan Szabo QA1

OUR PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
This has been a year of dissent replete with protest activ-
ities, some peaceful and some violent, some with positive
programs and some with no programs. These activities
bring to mind two relevant quotations. Voltaire, the noted
French philosopher, wrote, '7 disapprove of what you say,
but I will defend to the death your right to say it. " And just
recently, Joseph Monserrat, President of the New York City
Board of Education, stated on November 9th, "The right to
dissent does not sanction violence. The freedom to move
one 's arm stops where another person 's nose begins. "
I heartily subscribe to the above quotations. Democracy
thrives on dissent, peaceable and constructive, but violence
to people and property, or protest for the sake of protest
seriously threaten the very existence of democracy, and
points the way to its replacement by anarchy or totalitari-
Our democracy is our most precious possession even if
it at times is an imperfect instrument. Let us guard its
institutions zealously, while at the same time working to
improve the very inadequacies and ills of our society.
