Helps To Unity Students
Student Government at Benson during 1976 produced
little action as for as life for the student, however, many
good proposals did arise.
Graphics on the walls and music playing were two
ideas mentioned for the improvement of the cafeteria.
Student Body President for i976 was Vern Marshall.
Each of the four classes elected a President, Vice-
President, and Secretary-Treasurer. These people were
members of the Cabinet, which organized all activities of
the elected Senate, its committees, and members of the
Mr. Andersen, principal of Benson, commented that the
ways and means have been provided to facilitate an ac-
tive government for students.
"The student government will not function as a body as
long as members of the student body are void of ideas to
improve Benson. The administration and instructors at
Benson are here to advise and assist but not direct. Stu-
dent government should be a starting place where
students may become educated regarding political pro-
cedures, political activities, the importance of the power
of the vote, but most of all a place where student leaders
become active in the improvement of the school and

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.
