Administrators Help Students
Benson has the advantage of having four fair-
minded administrators and a Benson graduate as an
At the helm was Mr. Harold Andersen, principal,
who saw that the school ran very smoothly during the
year. He also constantly reminded the central ad-
ministration of the physical plant needs of Benson
students, attended PTA and Dads' Club meetings and
was very instrumental in forming the Benson Alumni
Club this year. One of the Alumni Club's projects this
year was to raise S800 for scholarships.
Primarily when a student hears Mr. Paul Benn-
inghoft's name, he thinks of discipline. However, Mr.
Benninghoff was also in charge of 8th Grade Orientation,
recruiting, and attendance problems such as truancy, class
cuts, tardies and a long list of other duties.
Shops at Benson would not have run nearly so well
without Mr. Aki Nishimura's guiding hand. In addition he
has the responsibility for all supplies for the shops and
shop teachers, and the student budget. Happily Mr.
Nishimura recovered from a serious auto accident he had
Mr. Stan Blair, curriculum vice-prinicpal, was in
charge of the academic portion of the school. His iob
involved making up the schedule for classes so
teachers would not have overloaded classes.
Assisting Mr. Benninghaff was Mr. Dick Hennessy
who helped with discipline problems and was the ad-
viser for the Parking Lot Patrol.
Q8 ' '4i', .
ABOVE: Keeping extensive records is only part at Mr, Paul Benn,
inghoff's iob. BOTTOM: Figuring the schedule for the coming
year is very tiring work so Mr. Stan Blair takes a second to relax
as he listens to Mr. Borquist talk about next vear's house.
BOTTOM MIDDLE: Talking to students and their parents is another
of Mr. Benninghoff's duties. BOTTOM LEFT: Working with Mrs.
Crafton who checks attendance, is one of the ways Mr, Richard
Hennessy helps as Administrative Assistant, TOP LEFT: When Mr,
Harold Andersen isn't attending meetings, working with
teachers or talking with students, there are always forms and
correspondence to be done. TOP MIDDLE: Mr. Blair and Mr.
Nishimura relax during lunch in the teacher's lunch room. TOP:
Keeping as many shops as Benson has running smoothly is all
part of Mr. Aki Nishimurds iob.

Teaehere Make it
Both teachers and students hate to see the summer
come to an end. Students generally get several extra days
of vacation since teachers in the Portland School District
returned three days early to get supplies put away and
rooms ready for the students and the opening of school.
Most teachers have favorite meeting places for lunch if
they bring a sack lunch. Popular meeting spot for shop
teachers is the Stock Room. In this room they have a table
and coffee available. Since shop teachers teach all
periods, they are able to take a coffee break during the
morning and in the afternoon.
Academic teachers can usually be found in one of the
two small faculty rooms, one in the main building, and
one in "H" wing. Coffee and other refreshments are
available in these rooms and most teachers use the room
during their lunch or preparation period to grade papers,
catch up on reading or just converse with fellow teachers.
