Volunteers Have Fun Managing Stage Jobs Most people were not really aware of the part the Benson Stage Crew played in the operation of the auditorium but it was an important group to students and instructors who needed to use the auditorium for the 49er talent show, assemblies, and the Tech Show. The seven members of the Stage Crew did an outstanding job on the preparation so everything went smoothly. "I learned a lot out of being inthe stage crew, but I had fun, too," stated Brian Hagglund 1101. All students who worked on Stage Crew were volunteers under direction of Ms. Debbi Frank. They learned how to control the spot lights, how to prepare for a show, how to control the auditorium stereo system and light board. "We had an excellent set up for the 49ertalent show and l feel proud of them for all the work and effortthey put into it," stated Ms. Frank. Because Benson has the largest school auditorium in the city, many outside groups rent the auditorium. This makes it necessary to maintain two stage crewsg one for school events and one for non-school functions. A. Andrew Warninghoff 1111 works on a speaker. B.

Nine Aardvarks Say Goodbye For ow B.P.C.S. ln a world full of abbreviations this one stands for the Benson Polytechnic Computing Society, commonly called the Aardvarks. The origin of the society's nickname has been lost in the annals of computing history, however, the purpose of the society has not. The promotion of intelligent use and programming of computers is, and always shall be the main goal of the society. Unfortunately, due to lack of student interest, this is the last year for the Aardvark club at Benson. "It isa big loss for the students who want to learn more about the practical uses of computers," said Michael Cooper 1125, Aardvark president. Some members feel that the acquisition of three new Apple computers contributed to the demise of the Aardvarks. The Apples they felt made it easierto play games on the computers and took attention away from the socity's purpose. So after many years of association Benson may bid farewell. to the Benson Polytechnic Computing Society since only three members are returning. "However, if interest in the club picks up in the fall, the Aardvark club could make a comeback," stated Mr. Harlan Henry, adviser, A. Peter Williams 1125 shows off computer skills to an unidentified junior while Kyahn Kamali 1125 supervises. Andrew Waringhoff 1115 does some last minute homework. B. The Aardvarks demonstrate their true feelings toward Apple computers. AARDVARKS: Matthew Giger 1125, Jeff Goldader 1125, Aardvark President Michael Cooper 1125, Peter Williams 1125, Kevin Freeman 1125, Kyahn Kamali 1125, and Ronald Peterson 1125. NOT PICTURED: Rich Pang 1125. Fire Squad Takes iolations Seriously Bzzzzz ..... The fire alarm goes off, the classrooms empty, lights blink off, and the doors and windows close. Or do they? That is exactly what Mr. Rick Ramsey, Mrs. Judy Roeske, and their band of twelve merry guys and gals check each time the fire alarm goes off for a fire drill. Mr. Ramsey, in his second year as head of the fire squad, has a new assistant in the shape of Mrs. Roeske and together they oversee twelve students who patrolled assigned zones to make sure there were no fire violations. lf the fire squad found violations, they wrote down the room number where it occurred and reported the violations to Principal Paul Benninghoff who gave the offending teacher a call. So remember during fire alarm turn off the lights, close the windows, and shut the doors. A. FIRE SQUAD - TOP ROW: Carolyn Clark 1115, Mrs. Roeske, Mr. Ramsey, and Denise Layman 1105. BOTTOM ROW: Evan Hestmark 1115, Randy Tennant 1115, and Larry Griffith 1105.

Key Club Returns, Helps Needy Families After a seven year hiatus the Key Club made a reappearance at Benson last year. The Key Club is a community service organization and in its first year back the club distributed 15 Christmas baskets to Benson families that needed them. The baskets contained food that made the holidays a little more enjoyable. The Holladay Kiwanis also supported the Christmas basket program. Although it was the Key Club's first year back it attracted 30 students who were dedicated and made the Christmas basket program work. "l'm looking for kids with pride in their school," said Mr. Dick Hennessy, Key Club adviser. ln addition to the Christmas Basket activity the Club went to Kah-nee-ta Indian resort for a day of fun in the sun. The club members went to Kah-nee-ta so they could get to know each other in setting outside of school. An activity like the one to Kah-nee-ta may take place only once a year but the club was planning more community service activities for the 1985-86 school year. A, Mr. Dick Hennessy is surrounded by Key Club members as he gives instructions on what to do with the food collected for the Christmas baskets. B.
