By Kris Ryle For Benson Band members the Kansas City Worlds of Fun Fes- tival was an experience that could not be imagined. Waking up at 5:30 a.m. to board the bus by 6:30 was not all that exciting. One-half of us slept on the way down, the other half sat, gazing out of the windows. Band students were getting anxious as we came nearer to our hotel, the Hilton. It turned out that the rooms would not be ready until 6:00 p.m., we had ar- rived at the hotel at 10:00 a.m. Needless to say, we had to go somewhere. Mr. Miller decided we would go to Worlds of Fun early. Without a doubt, everyone was for it. The band didn't play until late. Members were moved from one section to another, but soon they faced the judges with the piece of music they had practiced thor- oughly. Each band had 20 min- utes to play and then they could explore World's of Fun a while longer. Rides are the same old thing for people who have been there before. Being a newcomer to Worlds of Fun and afraid of heights, I actually had to be forced on rides. I found out rather quickly that shutting my eyes was the best thing for me. But, I had to admit it was still fun. The second day we woke about 7:00 a.m. We visited the Truman Library and Museum. To me, the most impressive thing was Pres- ident Truman's car, especially his limo. After we left there we went back to Worlds of Fun and en- joyed the rides once more. We also went to the Waldo As- toria Dinner Theater. This was a very elegant place. The draperies and fancy dressed people were sights to see. The food was ab- solutely great. Seconds were available but most people took so much the first time they didn't have room. One of the actresses in the play was Carol Wayne. The band then went to the town of Table Rock to perform for kindergarden trough twelveth graders. We then returned to school for another day of regular Benson activities. lation of Prom. When I woke up that moi'ning it wasn't snowing very hard, so I prepared for the Prom, which was supposed to be that night, As the day went on, the snow started coming down even harder. I picked up my dress at the storer but at about two o'clock I found out that the Prom had been can- celled. Thanks for that, Student Council. It would have been a shame to wear my long-johns to Prom. Tammy Brown school newspaper. There were no blacks pictured in the paper whatsoever. I wish that there were a change in the next issue by having blacks pictured in some school activity.
