Two years have l y since Dick (.rayliiel aiui Mr. Ki) ) s collalxiratecl to put fortli Ken¬ nedy ' s first year-book. .Vt the time t hey expressed the hope that their work should not po foi naiiplit, hut that the “Kencoll should heconie a yearly publication and take on its true sipnificance as a year-book. Unfortunately, no inapazine was forthconiinp last year. It was. therefore, with preat «leterniination that we set about this year to publish a year-book which wcnild be a worthy successor to theirs and which would be of such a nature as to encourape the students of Kennedy to establish “The Kencoll as an annual feature of the school year. W ' e have worked hard to achieve our poal and it is not without some pride that we point to this mapa- zine as the result of our labour. We sincerely thank . Ir. (lilbert and the. teach- inp staff for the assistance and sound atlvice which they have most penerously piven. Miss Hewitt, in particular, rendered valuable :issistance in preparinp our material. Ned Car rinpttJii is to be ] raised for the mapnificent manner in which he lias handled the business details connected with the publication. To the Forum also, we extend our thanks for the financial backing and pracious co-o] cration which they have piven us. Finally, we thank onr advertisers for having shown such faith in us, and we urge you to patronize them. From The Superintendent —Mr. I.. Wheelton. .My cry pleasant and mutually frieiully three years association with the staff and students of the Kennedy Collegiate Institute make any assurances of my pood wishes i|uite unnecessary. The pood wishes are here exjiressed in jirint only for the imqioses of a permanent record. 1 have followed with deejv satisfaction the school life this year in . rt and Music, in the re:ilm of health and sports, and in the more formal courses. The spirit with which the w(»rk has been uiulertaken and the steaily propn-ss which has been maintained speak well for the leadership of the new princiiial, Mr. ( ' .ilbert, and the fine relations existing among the principal, the staff, and the students. The splendid wt rk of the Forum, in the face of the school’s evident achievements in extra¬ curricular activities, may be taken for granted. It. however, de.serves the special commendation and the thanks of all who are intereste l in the school for again arranging to record the high¬ lights of the year’s accomplishments on the printed ] apes of the Kencoll. .My sincere good wishes for continued health, happiness ami success for the whole pers jnnel of Kennedy Collegiate Institute is here e.xpressed.

4 THE KENNEDY YEAR-BOOK ..Ill.IIMIIIMIIMItlllll........ ..Illlllll EDITORIAL you n — KHNCOLL — 1940 Published By the Students of the Kennedy Collegiate Institute Windsor, Ontario Price 20c per copy by S. R. Ross, Vice-Principal, Technical School Secondary school students look forward to the irreat adventure of life—a span of fifty or more years after leaviiifj scliool. Of this ])eriod there are ahead some forty-five years of work in a gainful occupation—in some role of service to their fellows. Such a long ])eriod to many hoys and girls seems endless—years seemingly pass so slowly that the time will never come when they will receive their first pay envelope and certainly the age of retirement, say sixty-five, is so far in the distance that it is never considered. Such is not the case, however, with all older jteople who fretiuently comment on the rapid passing of time and wish they could turn the clock backwards. Could the student of today detach himself from his group and hut survey the whole situa- titju with the eyes of older people, he would realize many facts which to him now are only hazy if at ail even contemplated. Since it is not given to young people U) realize their experiences beforehand, there may he some way of anticipating them and preparing for them. ()ne method is to formulate a plan. I’efore launching upon any enterprise or project there is always an objective in mind and to reach that objective, some ])lanned procedure, mental, written or drawn, must be pursued. I’cojile who ])erfonn the coni])lex work of the world are always ])lanning to lay. the work of tomorrow, next month and even ne.xt year. It is a safe guess that automobile models to he introduced in I ' Ml are being designed, modelled and studied today. Teachers of composition have this in mind when they urge a student to have a written i)lan for hi.s e.ssay. Me then knows his objective, his train of reasoning in reaching that objective, and as well, his place of starting. 1 low seriously is needed then a plan for one’s journey through the 45 years of work lying ahead which each student hopes to travel happily and successfully in some useful vocation. ' I ' he choos¬ ing of that vocation is not easy or to be dismissed lightly—there are some twenty thousand known occupations from which to choose. I laving once been inspired to a realization that there is after all something of a problem here, a student will be disposed to seek information and advice hel])ful to himself. It is here that ' oca- tional ( ' luidance will serve a useful purpose. . ])rogram of Guidance aims to assist individuals to choose, prepare for. to enter, or successfully adjust themselves to occupations: also to inform young peojile, and parents as well, regarding job rec|uirements, conditions and demand; to study educational facilities of their community and elsewhere which best may serve their particular program. This, in brief, is the purpose of guidance, so one can readily sec that there is nothing in the opinion that, by some magic, young people on sight are to be sorted out into groups suitable for one calling as against another. It is not as easy or self-evident as that. There is in Ontario a pnjvincial Vocational Guidance .- ssociation and some day there will be a Windsor Hranch because there are today many efforts of this nature being made here bv Service Clubs and intcreste l individuals includ¬ ing business and i)rofessional peoi)le. Then, if this short article has been an ins|)ira- tion to anyone who has read it, he may decide to study his own capabilities. i)ersonality. likes and lisiikes to determine if possible what is his forte. Me may be fortunate in deciding on a very clearly defined goal or he may feel that his goal lies within a broad phase of life’s activities in which his particular role is not yet clearly apparent. Then he will study his educational program and the way of evolving his plan through the most direct sequence of occupations. E ' rom various people and sources available to him he will learn job requirements, working conditions, remuneration, chances for advancement. lie should make many personal contacts, meeting people whose experience and advice will guide and hel]) him. -At any rate he should be a hapj)y adventurer on that long journey, knowing that the man with a plan and a thorough preparation for some definite useful .service will get o])])ortunitie.s— for him there are big rewards in the offing. llest of luck to Kennedy students!
