A -:EE Record Your View Of Benson Activities ln the planning stage the Blueprint staff considered many themes but one idea seemed to be behind all suggestions - Impressions. Students, whether they were freshmen or seniors, form impressions of each other, the teachers, the school, and the city. They have views on movies, music groups, and courses of study. Sometimes these are negative impressions but most students really have a positive outlook on themselves, others, and their surroundings. Since the staff cannot be everywhere to record all the events going on at Benson and in the community, the staff has created space on each division page for the book owner and hisfherfriendsto relate impressions of the year, others, and the community. A. King Kong, a gigantic rubber inflated ape used in the movie, was placed on the new Portland building to advertise the state's new lottery. The impression the lottery commission hoped to create was that the lottery was the biggest thing around. B. The Junior Class surprised everyone by actually holding Benson's first Junior Prom. The prom was held at the Garden Hall on S.E. 82nd. Couples enjoy themselves to the recorded music provided by the in-house facility. Jackie Van Zee l11j and John McPartIand l11j enjoy the music. Larry Hook 41 ij and Rachael White welcome all the juniors to the prom. C. Connie Tran i9j, Frank Byers 112i and Cynthia LaMarche f11j - not pictured - were the school Spelling Champions and competed in late May in the district contest.
