Seniors Vote Friends o
Into Nine Categories
The yearbook lBIueprintl staff wanted to find out
who the seniors thought were the best in the nine
categories the staff made up. So the staff decided to 0
poll them through their 'economicsfgovernment 2 4
classes. The votes were painstakingly tabulated and X I
the decision was made about which male and female
were selected for each category.
Even though the Blueprint staff only made up nine
categories, all the seniors at Benson were the best.
MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED

Everybody Makes Impression On Others
"Everybody lives and acts partly according
to his own, partly according to other people's
High school is a time when students begin to
test their skills, interests, desires, and abilities.
Benson was honored to have three merit
scholars. Some students expressed
or a mastery of a specific machine. Others gain
additional experience through travel. Sadly
Benson lost one student due to an accident, his
goal stopped too early. For those who worked
hard, learned the discipline necessary for
success, graduation is a time for rejoicing.
Madame du Deffand once said "One is no
more master of his impressions than of his
themselves by their vocational skills throu h
g coughing or sneezing" but everybody makes
work on an automobile, a piece of equipment
,and has impressions.

Brings Spook 'Spirit'
Clad in ghoulish attire, spirited students of Benson
gathered for mug shots during the Halloween Spirit
Day contest. The prizes awarded were the student's
choice between a M'A'S'H poster and Tech Taffy. Mr.
Robert Jeffery, electronics instructor, supplied the
video camera, the video player, and the video tapes
that let electronics students video tape each student in
"The tapes could be viewed just for fun or for
blackmail, whichever the student wanted," said Mr.
Paul Schweitzer 1123 and Mike Kernan 4123 took
pictures of the students in their best witching hour
The winners of the contestwere: Jackie Van Zee 1113
for her revealing cat costume, Travis West 4123 for his
feminine costume that had all the guys whistling, Mrs.
Kris Iverson, counselor, for her appropriately worn
witch costume, and Michael Stevens 1123 for his
accurate depiction of the U.S. President, Flonnie
This day, however, was only part of the entire Spirit
Week activities. There was a Nerd Day when all
students could dress their nerdiest, a Spiff Day when
students dressed up, and a Pajama Day when students
wore pajamas and late risers were in heaven.
