Today is February 25, 1970, and just last evening I heard, for only the
second time, the expression, HToday is the first day of the rest of our lives.H
what this means is that humans are recognizing for the first time, seriously,
that the Planet Earth may die in the same last gasp as many of its present
residents: that we may wear it outf contaminate itg use it upp overcrowd it
to the point where humans cannot live in the Earth's environment.
The challenge of today is no longer to save the Earth for future gener-
ations, but to save it for its present residents. Each human soul needs a
challenge - yours is to save the Earth for your own life.
This is what the educational process is all about. This is why you are
in school. You have the greatest challenge that has ever faced a generation
of young people - greater than the challenge that faced Columbus or Magellan.
You must keep the Earth alive. Good luck.

This year the Olympian Staff gave a great deal
of consideration to the theme for the 1970 Olympian.
After much thought we chose the Zodiac to represent
our ideas. As you probably know, the Zodiac concerns
We have expressed our theme on the divider pages
of the different sections. For the faculty we used
Libra, whose symbol is a balance, because they are
honorable and are leaders. The ninth grade is rep-
resented by Leo, the Lion, whose traits are domineer-
ence and authoritativeness. Pisces, the Fish, repre-
sents the seventh and eighth grades since they are
rather unlucky. For sports we used Aries, the Ram,
because the participants are energetic and strong.
Taurus, the Bull, who is often musical and has a
wide range of skills, symbolizes the activities.
Since the school day is often tiring and contains a
variety of activities, we have Scorpio, the Scorpion,
for the school life section.
Some people do quite a bit of talking about what
will happen in the future. We would like to predict
what will happen, but we can't, But we do know what
has happened this year and have attempted to record
This has been a very active year - with foot-
ball games, bomb scares, basketball games, assemblies,
dances, and the usual school day. So we hope that
in later years you can look back and remember what

The 1970 Olympian would like to honor a man who has given many
years of service to our .school system. His intelligence and forti-
tude has resulted in the competent administration of our school.
Throughout his administrative years outstanding gains have been made
in making our school a better place in which to work and receive a
good education. Under his leadership more activities have taken
place than in many other schools. He has tried to understand us,
the students, and has succeeded in this task. So we dedicate this
Olympian to Hr. John R. Swift.
