Beler Guard Keeps Marching The Benson Color Guard meets regularly in the Band Portable after school. As a group, they have been practicing marching and appeared at Benson's first football game, October 31. During the summer, the color guard uniforms were cleaned and repaired. The Color guard has new equipment for this year which includes the chrome helmets, which were made and chromed by a local industry and presented to the color guard as a gift. These replaced the plastic helmets formerly used. The guard marches with four flags, these are the United States flag, the Oregon State flag, the city flag, and the Benson flag. The Benson flag is orange and faded blue, which has turned pink with .age. Mr. Rowe has been trying to get several estimates from different flag companies on how to take care of the faded blue. New fringing may also be added. ' The Benson Color Guard was started in the late forties by a member of the U.S. Army, who also kept up his regular duties. The guard used to do Veterans Day parades and other activities, but now there is less demand for the Color Guard, according to Mr. Rowe. The Benson Color Guard has always had six members with two reserves. The six members this year are Chris Parker, master sergeant, Ben Choy, technical sergeant, Roy Kluthe, Brian Dinsmore, and Carl Keltz, who are all buck privates. Band Department Prepares er Yarieci Aetivitiee The Band department took part in the Christmas program December 17, the Spring Concert, the Tech Show and the '76er. Active also at the football games, the Band served as a liason between the grade schools and the high school. Nume'rous concerts were given at grade schools to help acquaint the students with Benson High School. By for the most important event of the year was the Rose Festival held in early June. Last year the Band did not take part in the festival but planned to this ear. Y In addition to the Marching Band Benson had a Beginning Band, a Junior Band, and a Pep Band. All three were under the leadership of Mr. Harold Rowe. TOP LEFT: Chris Parker ll2j explains marching move to Brian Dinsmore UOQ.

Music Ie Great Experience Operating out ofa well worn wooden portable and the dressing rooms of the stage, the choral and music groups of Benson created a lot of professional music which credited the school iust as much as winning athletic teams or contest winning students in other academic areas. The elite group of the choral section was the Am- bassadors. This group was composed of a select group from the larger choral group and one of their functions was to appear at assemblies in the various grade schools of the city. Another top ranked group was the newly formed Stage One group which was created to appear mainly before business groups, at luncheons and at other functions where a small group is desired. Choral director is Mr. Roger Hanson. Benson's Band achieved much recognition at the '76er, and the Tech Show, Headed by Mr. Harold Rowe the band stressed perfection and had several students attend com- petitions. Part of the band was the Pep Band composed of band students who performed at athletic events when the regular band was not in attendance. Their purpose was to aid the rally in bolstering spirit. Probably the most important event for both of these groups was the Winter Christmas Concert and the Spring Concert. ln these two shows the bands and choral groups are the show. Often special compositions or unusual music selections are presented. TOP RIGHT : Bill Severe il ll adds the sound of his horn at the ap- propriate place.
