French, Spanish Only Languages Qffered Foreign Language took a step down with the dropping of German, leaving only French and Spanish. New textbooks and workbooks were issued for those languages. 1 "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. A. Mr. William Hughes, French and Spanish teacher, uses headphones to talk to the class. B. Garry Schnell l11l and Tye Trepanier Q99 try to converse in two different languages. C. Mr. Hughes goes over Spanish test in class. "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 took it Cuong Nguyen 1105 Page 126 8. .W .www-MW t aw, E N ,sm A as X X at 3 1 JN'

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. 5 S 2 if T ggi 3 M . 1 g , . . g... 5 ut. .... in uuyu Sf' X. 5 -s' t , Q i..i t . y. lelhi l....s- T W t ..

I never knew how to really use one until l came to library class. - Bill Clark U23- Technical Resources Excell In Library Perhaps on one of your trips to the library to study for that seventy page history report, you happened to notice people poking their noses into a doorway near Harold Arendt's office. The reason probably would have been the addition of four new computers to Benson's space age library technology. Benson now has three Apple 2E computers and two printers. The computers previously could be used for homework and games, but games had to be discontinued so that the new PSAT study discs could beemployed. The students were extremely excited and Mr. Harold Arendt, the librarian said that the computer sign-up book was swiftly filled every morning. "Soon to be installed will be a microfiche tfeeshl reader!printer", Mr. Arendt added enthusiastically. Microfiche is similar to the microfilm seen in many espionage movies, but it is wider and easier to read. A new addition to the library staff was Mrs. Judy McNeil who assisted Mrs. Anne Barlow. "Benson has always competed with other schools in the number of library staff members and so far we've been on the bottom", said Mr. Arendt, "however, now it looks like we're catching up." The library disposed of unwanted or unpopular books by taking student polls, in an effort to give the student what they needed and what they'd read. A. Rodney Hicks l9l studies a graph displayed on one of the new library computers. B. Library aids Loren Burling l1Ol and Paul Herigstad l 9 J pluck keys and gain education through the use ofthe library computer systems. C. Mrs. Shirley Bankston, book clerk, reviews a booklist in the bookroom. D. Tracy Zellen 1123 uses library time to catch up on an automotive assignment. Page 127
