Xeik, . ,X xl. S'cuclen'c Bocly Government 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 Student Body. 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 school affairs."

49'er Beeemee 7B'er For Bicentennial Celebration The annual Benson PTA 49'er was replaced this year by the Benson 76'er in honor of our nation's Bicentennial celebration. The name change did little to the purpose of the event: various fund raisers operated booths in the halls and the Stage show offered vocal and musical entertainment. The PTA sponsored the 76'er to raise money and to gain new members. There were many booths which were set up, and these were run by teachers and interested parents. The names ofthe booths were also changedg the new labels included "Betsy Ross' Boutique", "Poor Richard's Bindery", "Martha's' Bake Shop", "Good Times", "Valley Forge Mercantile", and "Darragut Farms". From these booths one could find an assortment of potted plants, paperback and hard bound books, glassware, clothing, and small toys, as well as cakes, pies, and doughnuts baked by Benson mothers. The Benson Dads' Club operated their hot dog stand, and "Paul Revere's Inn" offered coffee, cake, pie, and soft drinks. The stage show this year was shortened from one hour to about forty-five minutes. The purpose of the change was to give people more time to browse among the booths. The Master of Ceremonies for the show was Charles Mueller iI2J. The Benson Ambassadors appeared as one of the highlights, they presented "Billy Broke Locks", "The River Is Wide", and "El Matador". The Benson Gleemen, always impressive with their large membership, sang "The Testament Of Freedom", "Prohibition Round", a selection from "The Student Prince", "Cabaret", "Enjoy Yourself", and "Hey, Look Me Over". Mike Benton U21 presented "Abraham, Martin 8- John" by Dick Holler, and Greg Shook lI2j and Katie Rafferty combined on Elton John's hit, "Your Song". "Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton was given by Robert Moffat UOJ. The Benson Band closed out the show with four tunes which were researched, edited, published, and distributed for the public high schools by the J.C. Penny Co. as a Bicentennial gift. These include "America", "The Federal March", "Over There", and "Fairest of the Fair". The 76'er was once again held on a Saturday night, November I5. The show last year was moved from Friday night because of the state football playoffs. To avoid complication this year, the date was set on Saturday.
