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.

in 1' NNI 'ffm ,,-Z., x 0' I , J Tech Show 1975: " Biceniechnical Show " The 56th annual Tech Show was held March 5 and 6 and it proved to be one of the best ever. The theme for this year's show was "A Bicentechnical Show Celebrating America's Third Century." The event gives Benson a chance to show the public what goes on inside "The Na- tion's Finest." Total attendance for this year was 8,746, up from 7,982 a year ago, The Bicentennial celebration was evident throughout the school, most Benson shops displayed their version of f an American flag, made up of materials used in each S respective shop. Shop teachers were given a blueprint of the flag design and a plywood backboard and were given ff the option to create a replica of the flag. Some examples included electronic shop, with sequential lights for stars 3 and resistors, capacitors, and diodes for red and white stripes, building construction, with different shades of ash, hickory, and maple, and automotive, with light bulbs fg inside nuts for stars, with the stripes formed from car- 5 buretor floats, condensors, points, and spark plugs, Simon Benson was honored this year as pictures of log' ging equipment and actual Benson artifacts were on ex- t f hibit. Along the main hall were mounted photographs showing the various techniques used by Simon Benson in his lagging expeditions. ln the library, large, rusted chains, pulleys, and other devices used were placed out on tables for everyone to see. ln machine shop, work was being done on the Simon Benson fountain, which was placed in front of Benson on April 5. This attracted quite a bit of attention, as did the - other shops working on Bicentennial proiects. In printing, souvenir folders were passed out along with free copies of the Declaration of independence. Visitors to the plastic shop were given key chains with a map ofthe United States and "l776" and "l976" inscribed in the plastic, Foundry shop members passed out souvenir Bicenten- nial coins, which were made by the students. .
