Library Provides Materials Ts Assisi Learning. Awareness Benson's library offers all students an excellent chance to gain knowledge from many different sources. Over 25,000 books line the shelves, as well as several racks of paperbacks. Files are kept for current popular magazines and local newspapers. Several types of microfilm viewers have been added this year, increasing the availability of information. More students may use information recorded on microfilm than in the past. Other new pieces of information include racks for stereo records and a set of drawers designed to hold cassette tapes. Also new this year is the Career information computer terminal. A newer, faster console has been installed and is now in use. The terminal is available to all students, it lists iob information about any particular occupation or field of interest. A questionnaire is first filled out and then entered into the terminal by the student using the system. The special book security system, installed last year, is still operating despite several minor problems. Certain types of notebooks seem to trigger the alarm accidently, and the system is slow to register the books when they are being checked out. The security system allows the library staff to detect when a library book is being taken from the library without being checked out first. On February 4, the library was opened and a leak in several water pipes over the south end of the library was discovered. Many books were soaked by water, and the library was closed to dry the books. All damaged books were sent to be rebound or replaced. Total loss was estimated to be several thousand dollars. The original Benson library was located in rooms 2l3A and 2l3B. When H-wing was constructed, the library was moved to its present location. Juniors and seniors now have a new class called "In- formational Systems Technology." This class is basically designed to graphically produce and provide systems of storage and retrival for visually-recorded information. Enrolled students are involved in such techniques as making "microfishe" which is a reduction of pages onto flat film, film strip making: overhead transparencies: and slide making. The class offers instruction in most anything in this informational recording system. Students also learn how to bind books, make paper duplications, run an offsett press, and how to run and teach students how to run the Iibrary's Career Information computer. information Systems Technology is taught by Mr. Arndt with the aid and assistance of Mr. Dan Robinson and Mrs. Gradys Viken. The class presently has forty students, with groups of five students per period. Mr. Harold Arendt is Benson's librarian.

Outdoor School Provides. Fun., Training In Responsibility Outdoor School Counseling is a program open to those sophomores, iuniors, and seniors interested in helping sixth graders from the Portland area at Outdoor School. Applications are taken and reviewed, and only a select number of students are chosen. These students then fake orientation seminars, which brief them about their specific duties at Outdoor School. There are five camps which make up the entire program. They are Howard, Trout Creek, Collins, Canby Grove, and Adams. Sixth graders from throughout the city are divided as to when and where they will go. There are four sixth grade classes at one time at a camp. All high school counselors have their own respon- sibilities. The organize the movement of activities and the conduct ofthe sixth graders. Bill Haase fill, when asked how fun and interesting the program is, remarked "It's a blast!" Kimball Organ Provides Musical Enriohmoni Benson's auditorium houses one of Portland's largest pipe organs. The maiority of students at Benson do not realize this fact, yet a small number take advantage of the instrument and use it daily. The Kimball pipe organ was purchased with city and student body funds back in I937. The money the city donated could have been used to purchase extra campus space in back of C-wing, but the money was shifted to help pay for the organ. The organ has been used for various presentations and gatherings held in the Benson auditorium, as well as occasional uses at past Tech shows, 49'ers, and school assemblies.

KBPS Has 53rd Anniversary Born over fifty years ago the public radio voice of the Portland Public Schools and the community, KBPS, covers a radius of approximately fifty miles. Broadcasts ran from Monday through Sunday, 6 a.m. to I2 p.m. Programs were planned to appeal to students in the grades as well as high school students and adults. The station's purpose was to furnish out-of-school educational programs for students and teachers, and fulfill the needs of the community. Some of the T4 skills students were able to learn by working on the KBPS staff were announcing, program writing formats and spot announcement writing. They were also able to learn operating procedure for the radio station control board, how to operate the turn tables and how to make tape recordings. Dr. Patricia Swenson was the station manager. The station sponsors a ninety minute daily news in depth program. They also aired delayed recordings of composers,critics,writers humor and interesting people.
