LOWER LEFT-President Stewart Minors calls for order at
a "Hot Pants" contest assembly put on by student
government. CENTER-Dan Calef, Mark Boyles, and Bill
Bradley, study plans for completion of concrete steps.
Student Government this year was a
beautiful mess. We fought and argued, but
we got a few things done. We participated
in "Second Wind" which raised 64 tons of
canned goods. Benson had a grand turnout
of seven students. However the March of
Dime's "Kids for Kids" Walkathon had a
much better show. Our distance men came
in first forthe twenty mile walk. We put on
two 25 c dances and lost money. Whoopee!!!
We had turnouts of 500 and more, Being Stu-
dent Body President was a lot of hard work.
You read, evaluate and process. You worked
hard and dropped in grades. Then you tried
to catch up. You miss a whole lot of school.
And among all this you get awards and hon-
ors. You have to be a nut to want to be stu-
dent body President.
A. Stewart Minors

The 1972 Benson student Parliament had
several major accomplishments, but their
success was marred by the personality con-
flicts and indecision that typified this year.
Some of this years accomplishments were
low-priced, high quality dances that were
partially financed by student government
funds, and the planning and construction of
the long needed steps by the new gym lead-
ing to the track. The student parliament
also took the cause of student rights to the
administration. The apathetic response from
the students and the ineffectuality of the
student leadership slowed the cause to a
halt. The student government sponsored a
"Gripe Assembly" where students were
urged to voice their complaints without fear
of repercussions was only a partial success.
The lack of spring elections kept several
members of the government in after the
enthusiasm had died. lt is hoped that the
student government will be remembered of
its sucesses and not its failures.
