Art Class Stimulates
In Benson's art class students were taught basic and
advanced skills in acrylic and oil painting,
silkscreening and carving. The class was open to all
students as an elective and students at any grade level
could take the class. The class viewed many cultural
films and studied the attitudes and rituals of various
countries. The rituals varied as far as dancing during
puberty to watching t.v. during puberty.
The instructor was Mr. Don Richardson who has
been teaching art at Benson for twenty-six years.
"I hope they always have art at least as an elective,"
said Nlr. Richardson.
"The class was fun, we have a great teacher, and it
was groovy,'.' laughed Dean Hesse t9l.

French, Spanish Only
Foreign Language took a step down with the
dropping of German, leaving only French and Spanish.
New textbooks and workbooks were issued for those
"The Spanish class was mind boggling but very
interesting," stated Cynthia l.aMarche 1115.
"We did about the same thing we did last year,
except without German," stated Mr. William Hughes.
Tape recorders were used during class so students
could hear speakers from those countries pronounce
the dialogue. Mr. Hughes, who taught French and
Spanish, also taught games and songs of the country.
Special attention was given to vocabulary and
pronunciation. This was done so the students would
have a better understanding of the language.

"During French class we did
a lot of interesting studies
about the French language and
its culture Furthermore we
studied its sophisticated and
bizarre customs We also
learned many popular French
songs familiar to all French
men Overall the class is a
delightful class and I am glad l
