This should be known as an experimental
yearbook. For, for the first time since I have
been going here, the students actually had
some control over a school activity. On top
of that we actually went by some rules in
putting out the book and everyone really
helped. I really hope this turns out to be a
good yearbook, I haven't seen it yet but if it
isn't the best, it can't be the worst. A lot of
people really worked their tails off, especial-
ly around deadline, and with all that effort,
its gotta be great. The book shows that Ben-
son students aren't all a bunch of apple-
polsihing shoeshine boys, were all "normal"
like everyone else. I really hope you like the
Working on the Blueprint this year has
been a worthwhile experience filled with ups
and downs. For those who think that work-
ing on the yearbook is an easy task, forget it.
That's what I thought when I first enrolled in
the class, but I soon realized that three was
more to putting a yearbook together, than
just putting in a couple of pictures. The Blue-
print staff never had a moments rest as
many times they came in after school to con-
tribute their time to making this yearbook
the best one made in a long time.

Working on the yearbook staff was a very
beneficial experience. It gave us a chance to
work together as a team and produce: prob-
ably the best yearbook in the history of Ben-
son High in content and organization.
The section contributing the most was
advertisement, which was brought back to
Benson, after many years of absence. This
not only enabled us to have color pictures,
but also gave us a wider range of covers
from which to choose.
I had only one disappointment this year.
This was the lack of interest in selling of
advertising. We only reached fifty percent
of our goal. I feel that to make it a major suc-
cess this interest must exist and all must
With all the problems we had this year I
felt that we have put out the best yearbook
that I have seen in my past four years at Ben-
son. Though we had many difficulties and
missed deadlines we still managed to put out
an excellent yearbook.
The staff this year really put out. Most of
our staff was inexperienced. We learned how
to put a good yearbook together. It is not
perfect. Compare it to previous years and I
think you will think it is much better. But
that'sfor you to decide.
