    Background: Kuwait, sheikdom tucked away in the weltering north-west corner of the Persian Gulf, is growing and developing fast. The city presents an imposing front viewed from the water.

    Oil is the reason for the intense activity and development now in progress throughout the country. In no small measure it is due to the wisdom and progressiveness of the ruling Sheik, who believes in putting his immense revenues from the natural wealth in his soil to good and worthwhile purposes.

    One of the big oil fields in Kuwait is the Burgan field. Revenues from the oil here goes towards the provision of mixed schools for children, like the Al-Jabria school. Then there is the Kuwait High School, for more advance education; they also have a hospital in the school.

    Not only are these fine schools being provided. Students education is free, and, in addition, they receive free clothing, food, books and other necessary articles. Financial aid, too, is available when necessary.

    There are hospitals, too, equal to any to be found in the world. Such as one is the Amiry Hospital. Full treatment can be had from artificial limbs to dentistry.

    Sport ranks high with the population, from the Sheik downwards. The two main sporting clubs are Al Ahly Club and the Al Khaklyj Club. High state and official cigarettes down to the most humble Arab regularly support events here.

    Behind all this is the never-ending search for oil, which goes on ceaselessly day and night. Outside is increasing, and with them the number of projects designed to accelerate the storing and shipping of the crude project. Already there are plans afoot to build immense new oil jetties to accommodate the 100,000 ton tankers of the future, which may appear in three or four years time.

    At the port of Wina Al Ahmadi additional submarine pipe-lines to tankers lying off-shore will shortly raise the tanker-loading capacity here 75 million tons a year.
