UH Our Way
to the top
Apache Junction High School is rapidly growing. It is no longer a
"little bitty" school way out in the boonies. lt has become a school
that is well remembered and well liked.
lt's a place where everyone knows everyone else, where you can
walk down the hall, and you can be able to recognize not iust one
face, but many faces. That's what makes us, the students who go to
school here, aware of how special Apache Junction High really is.
We're not a school that has a thousand or more students in it, but
it's a school that is close-knit and enioyed that way.
Apache Junction High School used to be o place unknown to
most. A place that was iust there, and not rriuch looked upon. But,
as the years keep coming, we see a change. The little school has
brought itself up in the world. The sports teams have gone for
above being good, they're terrific! ..

way to top
We've proved that by winning State last year, and now at every
game, the competition, our competition, continues to strengthen.
And also along with that, the sportsmanship among our players,
cheerleaders, and everyone in our stands is good too!
Other schools take for granted opportunities given them such as
huge gyms, big cafeterias, and other great facilities. But, take for
example our new cafeteria. We, as students, will greatly appreci-
ate the fact that we're getting one at all, and we're grateful for
As the years progress, Apache Junction High School will get big-
ger and better. It is the school people are proud to say they've
graduated from even if people don't know about it or ever heard
of it. It still won't change. Our students will still be proud.
"We are on our way to the top, and it won't be long until we
reach it either."

How did we meet?
Funny l can't remember
lt doesn't matter.
We laughed together
Over things that happened
Those things were important.
Crying to each other
We both had terrible problems
We got over them.
We grew together
lnto what we are today
We're very different.
Losing each others thoughts
Our friendship died together
We will live on.

cam pu life
"Silence is golden. It is brass. It is silver. lt is a
memory pounding on my conscience or a timep-
iece ticking off stray thoughts. Silence is affirma-
tion. It is that wordless recognition in the eyes of
lovers, the hush before a storm, and the pause
after the comma. Silence is the world ruled by
color and texture, untouched by music or racket.
It is an echo that never returned. Silence is wis-
dom in the face of fools. lt is ioy to a speaker and
hell to the lonely. Silence is that vastness from
which all sound issues and to which it returns."

All of the kids experienced a new bell schedule. lt
was pretty hard ta get used to in the first week, but
they all came into line soon after. The changes began
Jan. 17, and affected the ten minute breaks and the
lunch period. The class breaks were shortened to five
minutes giving fifteen more minutes to lunch and an
extra five minutes to second period to compensate
for the time taken up by the morning bulletin.
"I think it will help cut down the tnrdies. There will
be less time between classes to get involved and for-
get the time," said Assistant Principal Neil Barwick.
He further stated the change would not have been
started if they felt it would have been successful, he
felt it would bring about more of a school atmos-

of the Third Reich,' two pieces on mental institu-

Judges use official ballots that are used
throughout the nation. These ballots call for noti-
cification of the following during a performance,
voice control, body control, organization, under-
standing of material, and general effectiveness.
There is only one iudge in a preliminary round
and three in the semi-finals and finals.
When Mrs. Poppema was asked if Apache
Junction would ever conduct a Speech Tourna-

at least 40 rooms for a small practice tourna-
Apache Junction has the materials for a
Debate Team, but not enough student interest. If
more students would ioin we would have a
Debate Team," said Mrs. Poppema.
The most important tournament is Spring Nov-
ice, yet to come at the end of the year. This is a
large tournament at the end of the year for
beginners only, which makes up almost all of the
Apache Junction Team.
"Mrs, Poppema really works very hard to sup-
port the Speech Team. Her lunch hours are usu-
ally spent listening to speeches that students are
taking to competitions. She also holds an occa-
sional after school meeting for students on the
team. She gives up her free weekends to go to
tournaments and support the school," feels Lynn
Evelyn Taylor also a member states, "Mrs,
Poppema works a lot with us and listens to us and
our speeches. The Speech Team is a very great
experience and with a coach who cares, like Mrs.
Poppema, our team can win and does."

direction of Mrs. Edye Ruoho, was full of
Edye has two main goals as far as pro-
ducing plays at Apache Junction High
School. ll "Times when the whole student
body comes because of all the work that
goes into the plays," and 21 "To show the
community that we have a program that
involves everything from learning to cre-
ativity to lust plain fun."
The first play was entitled "Curious Sav-
age" and received overwhelming
applause from the audience. Mrs. Edye
Ruoho's reaction to this outcome was
5'fantastic." The play even had to hold
over one extra night. Students who per-
formed in this play, said Ruoho, had to
rehearse for about four to six weeks.
The second production was a musical,
entitled "The King and I." lt was the first
major Broadway musical the school has
ever attempted. When the play was still in
the process of being practiced, Mrs. Ruoho
said, "It will be the best show we've ever
had." There were 70 people in the cast
and according to Mrs. Ruoho, a few big
guys were asked to be Amazons.
The third play, "one of my favorite
ones," said Mrs. Ruoho, was "Flowers for
Algernon." lt required a lot of time and
practice, according to the cast, it was well
Mrs. Ruoho was asked, "What are your
feelings about being a drama teacher and
play director?" "Of course, there are a lot
of conflicts, but students and their warmth
and love make up for it."

"The students were doing an excellent
iob, that was the easiest cast l've ever
worked with," said Mrs. Edye Ruoho,
The play was entitled "Curious Savage"
and washeld Nov. 18, 19, and 20 at 7:30
p.m. in room 5E, and the admission price
was one dollar.
The play was put on by the Drama Club,
but was open to others not in the club. The
"Curious Savage" was about a woman
who was very wealthy and her family put
her in a high class mental institution and
then she finds out that the people in there
were kinder than many people in society.
She sent her family on a wild goose chase
to find the money, which gave some hilari-
ous times to the show, of course, she had
hidden it in a very safe place.
The play was put on so students could
get a good experience and so people
could see a play, laugh, and enioy them-
selves, said Mrs. Ruoho.
Students who acted in the play were:
Cindy Kalinski, Doug Kalinski, Brian Hasty,
Mary Johnson, Joan Burnap, Rhonda Rit-
ter, Rusty McLouth, Mitch Vancura, Susan
Nunn, Carol Tucker, and Mike Sanders.
Stage crew members were: Linda Ben-
nett, Jean Roberts, stage managers, Doug

Walking and climbing up mountains
and hills occupied the Hiking Club this
year. The club gives its members a
chance to get out in the open, to travel,
and an opportunity to see things that
they may never see again. All they
needed was a canteen, a backpack,
some boots or hiking shoes, and a
The club was started when an inter-
ested arose in the student body for an
adventure where they can get involved
with things in the outside world, to get
away from everything and everyone,
and a chance to have fun.
Some of the things the Hiking Club
did to raise money for their hikes was
to have raffles, they sponsored a
dance, they had barbeques at games,
and they had bake sales, collected club
dues, and had car washes.
The Club sponsor, Roland Hune-
macher, is very excited about the new
club. Since this was the first year the
club actually began, he's been really
thrilled. He just wishes there were mem-
bers that would stay in the club.
Oak Creek Canyon, Mt. Lemmon,
Tortilla Flats, Payson, and Hieroglyph-
ics Springs were among the many
places the group visited. The most
memorable experience for President
Cheryl Hamilton this year was to be
able to watch Mr. Nunemacher fall in
the water at Oak Creek Canyon.
"That," she says, "was funny!"
ln the future, the Hiking Club will
have more things, such as merit badges
and other awards that will be given to
the deserving people. Also, trips will be
more distant, and the club will travel to

Homecoming with all its color and spirit
has faded again for another year.
Topped with the game against Parker
and the crowning of the King and Queen,
special activity days lasted throughout the
week ending Oct. 29.
Spirit promotion started Monday with
"Banner Day" when students were asked
to wear pins or put up banners. Tuesday
was labeled "Club Day" showing student
involvement in activities.
"Sports Day" was Wednesday when
athletes were seen wearing shirts, jerseys,
and letter sweaters, showing how well AJ
has performed in sports.
The plans for Thursday's "Who's Who
Day" didn't work out, but Friday came
through strong as "Black and Gold Day"
and "Sock-it-to-'em Day." Students wore
painted black eyes to show an AJ victory
over Parker on Homecoming night.
Senior Rhonda Ritter, organizer of the
Homecoming activities, said of participa-
tion, "Sports Day and Black and Gold Day
went well, but due to lack of communica-
tion the other days fell through."
Other happenings at the school
included a Bonfire Thursday. Cheers and
Poms performed cheers and chants and let
a huge human snake of approximately
300 people around the Bonfire.
Apache Junction's Fire Department, rep-
resented by Seniors Tom Williams and
Craig Lewis, were at the Bonfire to start,
control, and put out the fire.
"The Student Council would like to
extend our appreciation to the Fire Depart-
ment for their aid to the school," added
Week long preparation ended Friday
with a Barbeque, football game, crowning
of King and Queen at halftime, and finally
"The All You Can Eat" Barbeque
started the evening off.
Half time ceremonies highlighted AJ's
32-6 route over Parker.
A long awaited event at the high school
is the competition for the Homecoming
King and Queen and all the royalty.
Elected as King and Queen were Pat Mar-
quez and Sandy Cormany with Dale Diu-
lus and Jean Roberts as senior attendants.
Other royalty included: Junior Attendants
Chris Barwick and Sally Roberts, Sopho-
more Attendants Hugo Huerta and Julie
Wright, and Freshman Attendants Kelly
Armsby and David Santistevan,
Halftime ceremony included flagbearers
Sherry Dryer and Lori Jenkins on horses
leading a procession of class cars and
Before and during the crowning cere-
mony, says Rhonda, "the band did a great
show in the shape of a crown."
To end the evening off there was a
dance by the Band Fortress, which approx-
imately 300 people attended the affair.
"Turnout and enthusiasm were great at
the game. Also, a certain group of seniors
on Friday did chants on campus between
classes and made signs to boost spirit. The
Council really appreciates the support, it
helped," commented Rhonda.

Special Events were lacking at Apache Junc-
tion High School including the Jr. Miss Pageant
which has always been one of the more glavmor-
ous events for many of the females of the Senior
Class for years.
Maior events included: Homecoming, the Ste-
vensons' Concert, and Lost Dutchman Days.
Although one good reason deserves another,
the reason that the Pageant is in danger of
becoming extinct is because there is a lack of
sponsorship. In past years the event was spon-
sored by the JC's until last year when they
decided that they no longer wished to put on the
event. It was taken over by the Apache Junction

took place at P 81 M Trail Riders arena,
located at Brown Rd. and County Line. It
began each day at I p.m. and ended at
approximately 3:30 p.m. ,
One of the most popular events was the

Introduction to Biology and Geology are two
new classes offered in the Science Dept.
"We would hope to be able to expand our class
offerings for next year to include some one
semester courses in geology, human anatomy,
physiology lan advanced coursel, and introduc-
tion to chemistry.
"We would like to offer more courses in the
advanced biology area, like parasitilogy and
microbiology," said Mr. Roland Nunemacher, sci-
ence teacher. As of now, there are only two
advanced courses in biology, wildlife biology was
offered first semester, and marine biology was
offered second semester.
Mr. Roger Short is the new face in the science

"Do you prefer working alone, or
would you rather work with someone?"
and "Will you work any shift on short
notice?" were two of the most popular
questions asked in a iob interview simu-
lation conducted in Mrs. Edye Ruoho's
Beginning Speech courses.
The mock interviews were given for
the purpose of preconditioning students
to the situations they might encounter
when making an actual iob application.
Evaluations were based on factors
such as dress, conduct, the amount of
information a student had on the job he
or she had chosen, and their applica-
tions. Students were also iudged on
their confidence in speech, the quality
of their handshake, and their various
replies to the questions asked by the
Mr. Joseph Landavazo, administra-
tive assistant, played the role of the
interviewer. He talked with each appli-
cant, and recorded notes afterward.
The notations were used in scoring, and
also served as constructive criticisms by
bringing to light things that could cost
you a iob in a real interview.
Mr. Landavazo conducted a post-
interview question and answer session
to learn the feelings and find out what
made the biggest impression on each
student about the interview.

instituting a new class called General
Business Core. Students may take either
record keeping or business math -
instruction is highly individualized."
The department acquired a new
mimeograph machine, and the room is
being rewired to improve the safety of
the room and to allow more equipment
to be added. Mrs. Karloff said that the
department is a great contribution to
the school. They do all the mimeo-
graphing, school catalog, registration
material, student handbook, attend-
ance slips, and corridor passes.
To end up the interview Mrs. Karloff

many students use the skills learned to
make a living." Mr. McCalister -- "The
department provides practical knowl-
edge for students to repair their own
vehicles and also provides an outlook
on an automotive-mechanic career."
Mr. Glenn McMinn - "lt's an
opportunity for a student to work with
his hands and his mind instead of iust
sitting behind a desk. He can actually
see what's happening and there's a
possibility of future employment.

Geography has been added for a
new class this year along with a new
teacher, Mr. Cy Henry.
The difference between this year and
last year, is that the department now
has four full-time teachers and four sec-
tions of geography. Teachers in the
department don't have to teach more
than two subiects.

The Special Education Department is
a great improvement from over the
past. lt provides education and learning
exposure to the unabled to benefit from
the regular classroom situation.
The Special Ed. Department has
received S700 worth of up grading
materials, ranging from first grade to
iunior high level.
Future plans for this department are
to increase the students ability to read
by providing reading classes, and by
helping other teachers include reading
in their subiect.
New teachers this year were Miss
Jackie Brookshire and Mr. Bill Payne.
Other teachers try to prepare the stu-
dents for their years to come in the
world of work and iobs in the future.

Fine Arts consists of music, art, and drama.
Two new classes have been added to the Music Department, entitled Jazz
Band and Music Theory.
Since last year, this department has doubled in size, reached a much
higher degree of quality, coordinated the new group called "Young Spirits,"
and has obtained many new instruments, said Mr. Richard A. Nelson.
Mr. Nelson was a new addition to this department, and when asked what
contribution he feels that the department makes, he stated, "The Fine Arts
Department allows the students to participate in a completely different area.
It is an outlet for people who are not Involved in other areas to develop their
Mr. Eugene Anderson, band director, feels that this department gives the
students an opportunity to grow and express themselves musically, and that
it gives them pride of belonging, educational experience in working together
to produce results, and teaches them cooperation. Future plans of the
department are to: I. Build a band upto IOO in number by I978.
2. To improve the quality of the playing level of each year.
3. Give the students more varied and richer experiences each year.
4. To add additional instruments, music, facilities, and uniforms.
In the Art Department, classes consist of Art I, Art II, Art III, and Art IV. In
Art I, the students worked on units in drawing, ceramics, crafts, and print-
making. In Art II, III, and IV, each student chose his area of interest and
worked more individually.
Ms. Diane Harrison feels that the Art Department can make each person
more aware of their environment, and they try to be of help in any area
when needed. Future plans of the department are to expend the areas
taught, and to add more equipment.
Mrs. Edye Ruoho, head of the Drama Department stated that the students
are really unified, and get along with each other very well. The Drama
Department has been improved with more lighting, and a new storage shed.
The most important future improvement is expansion of the department.
Mrs. JoAnne Collins, librarian, has been greatly helped out this year by
new assistant, Mrs. Helen Trenary. Mrs. Trenary does the record keeping
and checks material in and out. New proiectors and many new books were
added to the library this year. Future plans for the library are to expand
facilities and to obtain many more materials.

In their final game of the season the Prospec-
tors rolled over the Mingus Union Marauders.
Mingus scored first midway through the first
period after AJ fumbled on their second posses-
sion. The extra point kick was good, and the
score was 7-O.
The Prospectors retaliated with time running
out in the same period, as Fullback Dale Diulus
scored the touchdown, and Tailback Pat Marquez
carried for the extra point. That gave the Junction
the lead for good, 8-7.
Marquez carried for two more touchdowns and
one extra point, lthey missed the other onel, in
the second quarter, as the Prospectors ran the
score up 22-7 at halftime.
The Marauders came out after the break and
scored a quick touchdown and two point conver-
sion, early in the third quarter, to close to within 7
points, at 22-15.
Apache Junction then broke the game open
with Tailback Tom Allan, Tight End Chris Barwick,
and Fullback Don O'Keefe combined for 20
points to raise the score to 42-I5 at the end of
the third quarter.
Both teams scored twice in the final period with
Marquez and Hugo Huerta doing the honors for
AJ. The Prospectors missed both of their extra
point tries, while Mingus made the first two point
try, but missed the second. The final score was
Apache Junction started the first half of their
season with wins over Gilbert: 6-0, and Ray: 1-0
iforfeiti. They lost games to Gerard: 27-6, and
Bourgade: 13-O, with a 35-14 conference win
over Moiave in between to make their record 3-2.
In the first game of the second half of the sea-
son, Aio used a potent passing attack to hand the
Prospectors their only conference loss of the sea-
son, 18-6. Diulus scored AJ's lone touchdown,
early in the first half.
Eloy was the last team to defeat the Junction
this season, with a final score of 43-12. The Pro-
spectors spotted the Dust Devils 25 points in the
first half and never caught up. Pat Marquez car-
ried for both touchdowns in the third and fourth
Apache Junction showed an explosive offense,
and a tenacious defense, while winning their last
three games in a row, and out scoring their oppo-
sition, 146 points to 35.
On Homecoming night, Slot Back Randy
Tabor, Quarterback Sam Marquez, Kicker Fer-
nando Quintana teamed up with Pat Marquez
and Chris Borwick to score 32 paints, while their
defense held Parker to iust one touchdown. The
end result: 32-6, AJ.

"I feel the team's performance this year
so far has been above average," com-
mented JV football Coach Leon Trotter.
With a record of seven wins and only
one loss, the JV has the best record of the
three AJ teams. Their wins were over Gil-
bert 8-6, Dysart 34-O, the loss was a con-
troversial decision which was called at
halftime because of rain when the score
was 6-0 Gerard. They also beat Phoenix
Coach Trotter said the team's biggest
strength this year was unity.

lack of size and lack of number of players. '

year, but the leading scorers were Hugo

The offense in seven games scored 158
points while the defense has given up only
46 points, Coach Trotter said it was a

Freshman Football Team
doubles up size, S ee
for record breakin spree
A new team to the Apache Junction
High School this year is the Freshman
Football team. The purpose of the new
organization is to teach football and to
shape the individual into a better per-
Coached by Dan Majetich and Chris
Beatty, the team finished the season
with a 3-3-l record. The closest game
for the team was with Superior with a
score of 6-6.
Preceeding this game was a 22-6
defeat over Bourgade. Coach Maietich
commented that the best game of the
season was against Aio, "Even though
we lost, the men played a super
With enthusiasm as the main
strength, the Freshman offense scored
a total of 49 points, with a tough
defense of 68 points.
For the first year that Apache Junc-
tion ever had a Freshman Football
Team, they did very well, and both the
coaches and the players enioyed the
"Most of the ability is at the quarter-
back spot with David Santistevan and
Chuck Celis," said Head Coach Dan
"The rest of the team was a question
mark." Speed was fair in the backfield
with Tailbacks Fred Hasty, John Ellis,
and Kirby Von Meter. He added that
"Size is small overall except the Tack-
les Steve McDonald, Mike Castillo, and
John Baxter," said Coach Maietich.
Coach Maietich was reasonably
pleased with the results, but he says
you never really accomplish everything
you would like to. "The defense was
lacking experience greatly, but was
very eager. The offense also was lack-
ing experience, so the team had to
work very hard this year," commented
The schedule for the Freshmen was a
tough one with Gilbert and Eloy, lead-
ing contenders. Although the team
lacked experience, Coach Maietich felt
the team would be a contender for the

With a record of nine wins and five
losses, a 4th place ranking in state, and a
2nd place ranking in conference, the Pro-
spectors are having their best season ever.
When AJ traveled to Coolidge to chal-

took a long-range iump shot with four sec-
onds left in the game to keep the Bears
from being upset. The final score was 51-
"The team played excellently against
Coolidge, they were very lucky to beat us
on their court," said Coach Henry.
Leading scorers for the Prospectors
were Seniors Pat Marquez, Victor Huerta,
and Junior Ron Sowers with 10 points
each and Junior Sam Marquez with 9.
In their next outing, AJ traveled to Aio,
and defeated the Red Raiders 54-45. Sam
Marquez led the score with sixteen points,
followed by Ron Sowers with 13, and Vic-

well considering the long bus ride," Coach

Team strength lies in scoring, free-throw

The JV Basketball Team finished
their season with a 16-3 record, O-

Even though the Prospectors lost
their first game to Gilbert, 37-43,
they gained confidence and won
the next eight games with Bour-
gade ltwicel, Gerard, Gilbert, Ray
ltwicei, and Mingus ltwicel.
Their winning streak was broken
by Coolidge, where the Prospectors
lost, 33-61. The JV Team then
won the next seven games with Aio
ltwicel, Phoenix Indian ltwicel, Eloy
ltwicei, Parker, and Coolidge.
The last game of the season,
against Parker, was won by the
Prospectors with a score of 75-48.
Jeff Mason, coach of the JV Bas-
ketball Team, said, "Potentially, we
have a very good team, only if we
play as well as we are capable of
playing." He feels Ray, Bourgade,
and Mingus were the best games
this season, with the second quarter
against Mingus being the best
quarter he's had on the JV Team.
Mental mistakes have hurt them tre-
mendously, with the poorest played
game being against Coolidge.
"We did not execute any phase of
the game correctly," Coach Mason
The JV Team has had some prob-
lems with iniuries with Larry Karkos,

Hlnexperience seemed to be the main
hang-up forthe Volleyball Team this sea-
son," said Coach AI Cramner.
That may have well been the cause of
their one win, I2 loss record, although
there were five letterwomen returning.
One problem that perhaps many stu-
dents, faculty and administrators may not
consider is the fact that for the past three
years the girls have had to switch coaches,
which may not seem like an excuse to
most, but to the athlete, adiusting to differ-
ent coaches every year is traumatic.
First, there was Miss Sandy Stair, who
coached for two years. She moved, and
Mrs. Barbara Miller took her place. Mrs.
Miller herself said she was "inexperienced
at coaching" volleyball. This year Mr.
Cramner has taken over and has tried to
bring the girls together.
Returning was Senior Darlene Lipovoc
I4 years volleyball experiencel, Juniors
Debbie Paar I2 yearsl, Mary Marshall I2
yearsl, Gloria Perez I2 yearsl, and Laura
Celis I2 yearsl.
"Weaknesses seemed to center in
defense and ball control," said Mr. Cram-
ner, but he felt the team performed fairly
well, and that they improved as the season
progressed. Their only win was against Aio
which was played in a tough, three game
match late in the season.
"All the other teams in our conference
had more experience than us. If all the
players from this season come out next
year, the team should have much better
chances at winning," said Cramner.
Spiking was average, as rated by the
Coach, with Darlene Lipovic and Patty
Peck leading the team.
Servers rated good with Tammi Smith,
Mary Marshall, Gloria Perez, Laura Celis,
And Debbie Paar with the most consist-
ency. Sets were average with Karolette
Bumpas and Belinda Bonillas rating best.
Miami and Aio showed the toughest
competition for the girls because they
were the "best disciplined, best organized,
and had the best control and that's what it
takes to win," said Cramner.
Mr. Cramner said he enioyed working
with the team, but he believes Mrs. Miller
will be coaching again next year.
"They're a good bunch of kids, and if
they all come out next year, the team will
be much better," said Cramner.

Eighteen years of wrestling and coaching put
Wrestling Coach Glenn McMinn in the ASU Hall of

To be fair to everyone, work everyone hard, but
not too hard, and to make goals and try to reach
those goals are Coach McMinn's methods for coach-

There are no special requirements for wrestling. lf
the wrestler wants to make his own it is perfectly all
right to him. The only thing Coach McMinn wants
players to do is make practices, follow all the rules,
and do what they are told to do.
"There are no regular JV wrestlers," said Coach
McMinn. "JV wrestlers change from week to week."
One guy can be on Varsity one week and an JV the
next week," states Coach McMinn.
Visiting "George," a saguaro cactus, is one of the
ways the wrestlers keep in shape. They run JA of a
mile to 'George' and QA ofa mile back to school.
Coach McMinn has overweight wrestlers put on a
sweat suit and run or crawl under the wrestling mat to
take off the excess weight. The underweight wrestlers
are lucky and get to eat.
"Sometimes the wrestlers look better at home
games," says the coach, but he thinks it's only
because familiar people come to home matches and
they try to look better.

To be a good matmaid, you should be
able to maintain your self-confidence,
which simply means that a matmaid must
believe in her abilities.
The main iobs for a matmaid are sup-
porting their team, and knowing when and
when not to cheer. All matmaids should
work together as a team. Matmaids cheer
and score, and if there is a snack bar, they
might help run it.
Becoming a matmaid is explained at try-
outs at the end of the year. They are
iudged on: al overall appearance, bl voice
proiection and clarity, cl posture, dl origi-
nality of cheers, and el sharp movements.
The matmaid sponsor is Mrs. Debbie
Shields, home economics teacher. The
matmaid officers are: Robin Ritter, presi-
dent, Lisa Faught, secretary, and Kathi
There are ll matmaids including:
Belinda Bonillas, Lisa Faught, Kathy
Nolan, Robin Ritter, Cindy Seeman, Jodi
Seeman, Kathi Smith, Linda Smith, Tami
Smith, Rae Tanner, and Kelly Wilde.
Mrs. Shields became a sponsor because
she enioys working with the girls, and she
is learning more about wrestling. "The
girls are doing an excellent iob, and they
get things done," said Mrs. Shields.

For the first time in Apache Junction
High School's history, a Pot Luck Sports
Award Banquet was held.
Always in years before the banquet
took place at the Superstition lnn or the
Elks' Lodge. Due to inflation, the rise in
food costs, and the cost of living, the
prices offered would force the Athletic
Department to raise the admission fee.
At banquets in recent years, it cost
approximately 52.50 per person
admission. Prices have been upped to
somewhere around 54.00, said Athletic
Director Don Nelson. Since the banquet
was pot luck, and held in the Supersti-
tion Elementary School gym, it didn't
cost anything except a dish of food,
said Mr. Nelson.
Another benefit from the pot luck
banquet was the quality and variety of
the food. Pot roast, round steak, fried
chicken, cole slaw, mashed potatoes,
and corn were just a few of the dishes
that were brought. Seniors brought the
main dishes, iuniors brought the vege-
table dishes, sophomores brought the
salads, and freshmen brought the
deserts and baked goods.
Two more pot luck Sports Award
Banquets are scheduled this year. The
winter banquet will be held March 8,
and the spring banquet will be May l7.
They should get better, and become
more popular as they get better organ-
ized, said Coach Nelson.

To be a good cheerleader you should be able
to maintain your self-confidence, which simply
means that you believe in yourself and your abili-
Your personal appearance is very important.
You shouldn't be overweight or underweight, and
you should try to be neat in personal habits as
well as appearance. You should be prompt and
dependable, loyal to the school and able to put
duty above personal desires, always be a good
sport, cooperate with everyone, and have a good
You must practice so that when you perform,
your routines will look good. Your routines should
be original, suitable, in good taste, and high in
spectator appeal. The way you do your routines,
adds to the spirit of the cheer. Routines should
contain the following: lAl personality proiection,
lBl self-confidence and poise, lCl rhythm and time
ing, KDJ coordination of arm and leg movements
with words, tEl voice quality and microphone
ability, QFJ grace and variety of iumps, lGl pep
ond enthusiasm, and lHl precision.
Jumps should be an important part of all
cheerleading routines, and they should get spe-
cial emphasis from you in your practice sessions.
When making new cheers, they should get spe-
cial emphasis from you in your practice sessions.
When making new cheers, they should be fun to
say, and easy to understand. You should choose
words that are understandable, and you should
put definite motions to them. The motions for your
cheers accomplish two purposes:
I. They help the students say the cheer in the
2. They help to convey the idea and meaning
of the cheer.
Successful pep rallies are well-planned, ade-
quately rehearsed, and smoothly conducted.
They built school spirit in the team and the stu-
dent body. You should keep your rallies short,
simple, and peppy. It your school has a lot of
school spirit, the students will be proud of their
school, their teachers, and their classmates.
Your main iobs at the games are supporting
your team, and knowing when and when not to
cheer. You must choose a cheer that is right for
the situation. All cheerleaders should work
together as a team. Teamwork is the main factor
in building school spirit.

fo ur years
at new school
Four years ago our T50 seniors
attended classes as freshmen at the
newly constructed Apache Junction
As the first graduates to attend the
full four years at this new facility, these
students have faced changes in govern-
ment class requirements, they no longer
are required to have a iob as a senior,
or be a member of any vocational train-
ing program, and are required to be on
campus four hours a day.

OF THY SCHOOL
Thou shalt honor thy school with all thy
heart and all thy hide. And these ten com-
mands here told thee must thou keep all
the days of thy student life:
I. Thou shalt be on time all the tirne. Blame
not thy broken clock, the winds of winter,
or thy mode of transportation.
II. Thou shalt tell it like it is and never bear
false witness against a classmate, a
teacher, or the principal. Accept the blame
for thine own failings.
III. Thou shalt not waste thy classroom time
with questions both foolish and fatuous.
IV. Thou shalt combfbrush thy hair and
apply thy lipstick in that place provided for
such private undertakings.
V. Thou shalt not pass notes to communi-
cate with thy male or female friends, but
wait until lunch or school day's end pres-
ents thee with both time and fortuitous
VI. Thou shalt keep thy locker neat and
orderly at thy coming to and thy leave-tak-
ing from this institution of scholarship.
VII. Thou shalt not covet the brains and
abilities of those superior in wisdom.
Rather shalt thou study harder and strive
with greater effort.
VIII. Thou shalt maintain thy books in good
condition, likewise thy mind, for life is not
to be found in comics but in learning.
IX. Thou shalt not abuse thy privilege as a
desirable female by wearing scents and
costumes that would make eyes wander.
Or, if a male, thou shalt be gentlemanly
and never the brutish clod. These are abo-
minations devoutly to be avoided.
X. Thou shalt not mutter under thy breath
in disagreement. Rather shalt thou honor
thy classmates and thy studies. Silence is
golden and in suggplglgfansyhou learn.

"Looking back over this year
that lim supposed to conclude on
this page, all I can say is l'm glad
to have been ,the editor of the Pro-
We, the Yearbook Staff, have
tried to do this in our stories and
our pictures. Many thanks goes to
the entire student body and the
administration, without whom this
publication would have no reason
for being. We appreciate the help
of all these people even though
some of them seemed to be fighting
us at times.
This year hos been full ot many
changes, some of them good and
some of them not so good. I can
only hope that there are better
ones in the future. In conclusion all I
can say is that I'Il always remember
the past four years as I know many
ofthe Senior class will."
