Drafting Students Seek Creativity Located in G-wing, Architectural Drafting is one of Benson's more creative major shops. Architecture offered students a chance to learn the basic concepts of residential and commercial building design, they were free to plan their own structures and to solve certain problems given them by o "client", Mr. John Murtaughtaught the class, he isa registered architect in the state of Oregon, and has been in the architectural field his whole life. Mr. Murtaugh is ci Benson graduate, and he learned the basics of architecture in o class similar to the one he teaches today. In the iunior year, students learn how each room in a home functions and how each room relates to others. Around Tech Showtime, each student was given a chance to design his own home to fit a given situation. Seniors study commercial architecture, which entailed a more advanced level of study. Bank buildings, libraries, office complexes, and remodeling rooms are some topics which were discussed. Mr. Murtaugh comments, "I would like to create an at- mosphere inthe classroom which one could find in an ar- chitects' office." This has been accomplished most effec- tively. Architectural Drafting's counterpart is Mechanical Draf- ting, which was taught in the Foundry building. This field was a takeoff from the sophomore level of drafting. Students took an obiect such as a hand drill or a movie camera and sketch it in color for Tech Show, This type of work required a great deal of concentration and patience. Sophomores were required to take one year in drafting, which included the basics in isometrics, sections, and various viewed drawings. Mr. Damon Bagley commented about drafting, "Students learn how to plan ahead for future work proiects and learn howto use drafting tools in a skillful way."

Driving Skills Learned Everyone knows that when you are young it is a good idea to take Driver Education. lt helps to improve one's skills, and at the same time according to some, lower one's car insurance rates. Well, in 1976 nearly 200 students of Benson decided to either learn how to drive, gain higher skills behind the wheel, or iust get out of study hall. The training program lasted from mid-March to the end of April. The first thing the instructors did was to let the students get the feel of the car. Then, with four students in each car, it was on to the road. The students who were not able to drive one day would stay in the special trailer to use the simulator. Yidee Crew Aid Te Teachers Fifteen years ago Mr. Harold Arendt, librarian, in- troduced to Benson the practice of video taping events. ln i975-76 Mr. Arendt and Mr. Dan Robinson, with the help of three students, taped plays, skits, assemblies, sporting and other events for the aid of the teachers and students. The three students - Gerald Doss, Larry Stewart, and Jeff Meyers - were part of the Information Systems Technology training program and were invited into video because of previous experience in the field. Each student was taught separately and received o credit for their help. The purpose of the video crew was to produce valuable material that would be of use to the teachers and coaches according to Mr. Robinson. Mr. Arendt predicted that ir the near future video would take a maior role in teaching. TOP RIGHT: Student and instructor hit the road.
