X E .499 Wayne Gilbert who would have graduated with the Class of '76, was killed in an auto accident on November 9, 1974. Wayne was born in Portland on September l, i957 and lived here all his life. Wayne was an active member of Boy Scouts and ob- tained the rank of Eagle Scout. When laid to rest he wore the uniform signifying this honor. Wayne was described as an outstanding student and a good friend to those who knew him. His love was bicycles. On the fatal night he was struck by a car while testing out a new bike he had lust pur- chased. Listed as missing is Richard Laurie, a Benson freshman who disappeare a week before the Thanksgiving Holidays. Richard was a good student and expressed an interest in science and math. Florence Meagher, Richard's counselor, described him as extremely bright, but somewhat reserved. We, the Blueprint staff, dedicate this year's yearbook to all Benson students who have met with misfortune or ac- cidents. 6.

Garry was named the number one math student in the city of Portland by the Portland Public Schools and the Pro- fessional Engineer's Association. Judging was done on the results ofa series of mathematics tests. Garry scored 50 out of l50 on the National Math Contest which qualified him for the second test which was held at Lincoln High School. Garry ranked seventh out of thirty- two students. This qualified him for the third test, again at Lincoln. On this test he placed fourth out of sixteen. Gary then earned the top score at the final test held at Washington High School. Pat Walsh won a scholarship through the National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test QNMSQTJ. . Pat became a semi-finalist for the NMSQT when he scored T96 out of 200 possible on the Pre-Scholastic Ap- titude Test taken in his iunior year. Then he scored a 1380 out of 1600 possible points on the Scholastic Aptitude Test qualifying him to be one of 14,000 finalists.

Page lb Suoooed. Question In Future l'The single things which makes any man happiest is the realization that he has worked up to the limits ot his ability, his capacity. lt is all the better if this work has moved the human race a little farther forward." - Neil Armstrong First man on the moon 'lThe voices from the top today are by and large not the voices from below. My polls show the people are sick to death ot overblown and phony talk. They view politics as lsadly out of date.' The public wants the hard truth about the recession, energy, inflation and other key issues of the day...They want politicians who will level with them." -Louis Harris Harris polls "America's greatness was not built by taxing people to their limits but by letting our people exercise their freedom and their ingenuity to their limits. Freedom and prosperity go hand in hand. The proof is there to see around the world. Only by releasing the full energies of our people - only by getting the government oft your back and out of your pocket - will we achieve our goals of stable prices and more jobs." - Gerald R. Ford 38th President of the United States Schools Offer Opportunity l'Benson Polytechnic High School will very likely become more sophisticated within the next ten years in repect to courses of study," stated Mr. Harold Andersen, Benson's principal. Such courses as Computer Science, advanced studies in all technical fields, including automotive, metallurgy, and the sciences as well as mathematics, will be upgraded within the next few years. "There is also a likelihood that requirements for entrance to Benson will become more sophisticated.The impact of the State graduation requirements which will affect freshmen this year, has already been felt, which necessitates graduation requirements to be a minimum of 23 units it a student is to receive a Benson diploma. 'lBenson will continue to provide leadership at an even faster pace in Career Education during the late l970's and early l98O's," concluded Andersen. As we celebrate our nation's two hundredth birthday, we stop and look ot our history. The countless number of accomplishments made by millions of people help to show us how we have progressed as a nation. lt is also fitting that we look at where we are right now, and where we are headed in the future. We should look to see where we can improve ourselves and how we can help each other. We, as Benson Polytechnic students, should look at our own school and decide where it can be improved to better serve the needs ol students, teachers and the community.
