Students Learn Basics With Assorted Materials Pattern and Foundry are two of Benson's fine shops which work together. Each shop is dependent on the otherp the pattern department makes the numerous patterns used for sand molds, into which hot metal is poured in the foundry shop. Mr. Joseph Perry, Pattern instructor, has been in the field of the Pattern trade for 35 years. An introductory nine-week course is available for all sophomores, in which small items are built and used for making molds. All students entering the Pattern shop for a major will learn how to use various tools such as wood lathes, band saws, sanders, jointers, as well as many hand tools. All students who are majoring in Pattern enjoy their work, although the wood dust from the sanders and the lathes sometimes gets students' clothing coated. 'lYou better hold your breath in here during cleanup," commented one student. Mr. Frank Williams is the head of the Foundry shop. He has been in the field of foundry since he was fifteen years old, and he gained experience while working in the Navy for seven years. Majors in Foundry have excellent chances of finding employment in the field after graduation, according to Mr. Williams. Students in Foundry have various tools to use which include various metal grinders, sandblasters, a metallurgy "lab", as well as many hand tools. An electric induction furnace is used by the students to melt various metals, which include iron, aluminum, bronze, and stainless steel. The largest project this year for Foundry was the casting of two bronze drinking fountains. The wooden model was constructed in Pattern shop for the wet sand mold, and hot melted bronze was poured into it in Foundry. After cooling, the mold was finished and polished. The placement of the first fountain has not yet been determined: it may possibly goto the Washington Square shopping complex in Beaverton.The second fountain will be placed in front of Benson. . .c.....-.ann ABOVE: Students busy at work in Pattern Shop.

Electricians Revive Bowling Game. Learn Appliance Basics This year the Benson Electric Department had an interesting project to work on. It was a bowling machine, donated by John R. Welch Music Company. The electric majors completely repaired the machine by using parts from another machine which was beyond repair. All the bowling pins were polished, the side rails were re-stained, and the bottom was repainted. After Tech Show the Electric Department will put the machine up for bids andthe money will go into the shop fund. The other projects the Electric Department majors work on include rewinding A.C. and D.C. motors. They also work on solid state constructed projects such as battery chargers, light dimmers, and the Benson Electric Car. Freshmen enrolled in Electric work on such projects as crystal radios, electric motors, and small appliances they bring from home.
