The clothing students wore around Benson was about as
different as day and night. Girls wore dresses and faded
jeans, guys wore suits, slacks and tee shirts.
An influence on what students wore was the dress re-
quirement dictated by their shop since most shops had
regulations conforming to OSHA safety rules. For instance,
machine shop requires goggles, hard shoes, an apron or a
pair of overalls, and for students with long hair, a hair net.
Some of the girls brought two sets of clothes, one for shop
and the other to wear around the school in academic
The one thing everyone had to remember was not to be
surprised by what anyone wore. Hats, although original,
and radios were banned from hall and classroom use after
they became a detracting problem.
