agency. The office got phone calls from people who wanted to
employ a student lmost of the callers were former students of
Bensonl. This program was for seniors more than anybody
else, but they got jobs for other students also. The jobs for
seniors had to be related to their majors. If the job was related
to their major they worked on the job during school and got
paid for it. The work experience office checked with the
employer on how the student was doing. and if he was

Enjoy Busy Year'
Benson's cafeteria was one of the best in the city. Mrs.
Padie headed the staff of 1 5 cooks who prepared the food and
60 students who helped sell the food to students outside the
counter. Mrs. Padie and her staff served 1500 students each
day. The best selling items were rice and gravy, spaghetti, and
pie. They sold everything from soup to nuts in the cafeteria.
The maintenance staff was headed by Mr. Probert. He and
14 other men had the task of keeping up the school. This was a
big job. They did everything from changing light bulbs to
mowing the lawn. Without the maintenance staff the school
would be in pretty bad shape.
