Abstract

It is a real pleasure to be back on this campus and particularly at this time of year. It is certainly an honor and a privilege to speak before this distinguished gathering. A portion of your program has dealt with the staggering complexities which scientists face in getting man safely into outer space and back to earth. My discussion will point up another complex challenge in maintaining an earthly resource affecting the health and well-being of all mankind. Only this week a spokesman at the National Watershed Congress in Washington stated that wise use of our water resource can mean the difference between success and failure of such new ventures as the probing of outer space.
