Many Students Show
Interest In Photo
In the sophomore photography sequence basic techniques of
black and white photography were taught at first. Students
were then able to advance into color slides.
ln the Advanced Photography class students learned more
about black and white and color printing was introduced by Mr.
Small as part of the curse.
Mr. David Small taught about l25 students each day in EIO9.
Photography was a very popular shop for sophomores since
many want to continue through Advanced Photography class.
Others use it as o resource for other shops. lt is part of the
Graphic Arts Department.
The Advanced class did all the color pictures for the Benson
yearbook as well os many of the black and white pictures for
the book and the newspaper, the Tech Pep. ' ,,
Most students took photography as a shop because it was fun
and many wanted to go on in photography. Students first learn
how to take good pictures and then they learned how to turn a
good negative into a good print.
"Getting good pictures isn't as easy as it sounds," said Mr.
Small, "and color is more complicated." Most students planned
to use photography as a hobby but some could see uses for the
skills in other shop projects, A few planned ta make
photography a career.

Shep Sequens Help Students
Learn Basics Ui Many Trades
In the freshmen shop sequence, there are four areas
where each freshman spends one grading quarter in one
particular shop. The first shop is Sheet Metal, where
students make many proiects such as tool-boxes, spice
racks, dustpans, and parts boxes. Larger, more com-
plicated items such as smokers and tool boxes can also be
constructed. In Electric Shop, students learn how to splice
wires and how to make a crystal radio. Household items
such as irons or small motors are to be brought to class so
that they can be fixed. ln Machine Shop there are two
main proiects, the making ofa ball peen hammer and a
pair of clamps. Extra projects include a different style of
hammer head and a hacksaw handle. Automotive is the

books, watching many color films, and working on spark
plugs, carburetors, and fuel pumps.
Sophomores can choose which shop sequence they will
be in. Pattern and Foundry are in the field of manufac-
turing. ln Pattern the drawing and construction ofa mold
takes place, whereas in Foundry the mold is made by
pouring hot metal. ln Building Construction, the basics of
drywall framing and house framing are taught. Graphic
design emphasizes simple printing procedures, designing
of layouts and advertisements, and introduction to the
