Shops Work Tngathe:
A Simon Benson drinking fountain, similar to those
found throughout the downtown sidewalks of Portland,
was installed in front of Benson as a gift of the 1975
Several shops combined their efforts on the fountain,
which was unveiled during a ceremony on April 5. Mr.
JohnlVingelen counselor for a portion of the class of '75,
presented the project to Vern Marshall, student body
president. He in turn moved the valve which produced a
stream of bubbling, clear water from the four mouths of
the fountain. Mr. Harold Andersen then tried the water
and remarked, "Gentlemen, you may now drink."
The Come-a-long protect put several shops to work on
one general project.

reduced due to the poor attention that students gave to the
purpose of each assembly. There are many different kinds
of shows which could have been performed at Benson but

Football rallies in the fall were more or less successful
in stirring up school spiritg there were no basketball rallies
at all. Because of uninteresting subiects, some students
chose not to even go to the assembliesg they went
The number picked up somewhat during spring, but
nice weather or the smell of food from the cafeteria kept
the attendance low.

The I976 Blueprint Staff was unsuccessful in their
attempt to produce a spring delivery yearbook. For
the past two years, Benson's student body has been
asked which delivery date they preferred, both years
a spring issue was desired over the fall issue.
Many factors determine the size and the quality of
the yearbook. At the beginning of the year a certain
number of pages are reserved for each subject. Each staff
member is assigned page numbers, and they are
responsible for the completion of these pages. If the staff
does not complete these pages, the number of pages must
Having only two students with prior experience,
coupled with a large number of students who could not be
encouraged to work after school on their pages, the '76
Staff did not meet deadlines in November and December.
This automatically moved the delivery date from spring to
