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 1 Q fi 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! .. TOP - Senior Kim Reiling works after school and cleans out her locker.

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 that. 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."

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." Alumnae Wendy Henry y ....,,...,. 1 rgxwy .M A ,ff Q' r 1 at 'HD TOP LEFT - Soph.

Longer lun ch, sh orter break Ii Ven campus 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- phere. fi les W Q. I-7 Q Qu, 41.

This created conflicts for the Spanish Club members, who had been saving all year, for their trip into the interior of Mexico. Sponsor Kathy Backalukas stated when interviewed that "it was uncertain if the trip will resume as scheduled." Jan. 12 the club members discussed their trip and decided to either schedule it for late spring during Easter Vaca- tion, or right after school was termi- nated in May. The club's plans were to travel to Mexico City and possibly see a bull- fight. Spanish Club members were looking forward to this trip. "They earned points by working with the club to raise money, and if there was not enough money, the members with the highest amount of points would attend," said Mrs. Backalukas. A few of their fund raising projects were: a booth for selling refreshments during "Lost Dutchman Days," conces- sions at basketball games, and a dance marathon.

Mrs. Poppema states, "We have been making semi-finals and missing finals by only one point." Mrs. Poppema goes on by saying, "Naturally the more experience we have, the better we will do. Therefore, by Spring we should be consist- ently breaking into finals." Mrs. Poppema states that the main problems they have encountered is finding the time to prac- tice, and Camelback High School, the strongest of all high schools in Arizona. There are about I7 members on the Speech Team, the enrollment varies with each tourna- ment because a member does not have to partici- pate in every event. The regular members are: Ken Franklin, Brian Hasty, Lynn Hatch, Pam Holen, Craig Lewis, Jim Marsallo, Mary Marshall, Kevin O'Kelly, Kim Parks, Roger Peterson, Karen Price, Rhonda Ritter, Joan Sambaluk, Evelyn Tay- lor, Robin Trombley, Greg Turner, and Mitch Van- cura. Final events will be: Jan. 22 in Navaio County, Feb. I I-l 2 at Arizona State University, April 22- 23 at Brophy College Prep, May I4 at Mesa High School. Other tournaments have been scheduled for Feb. I9, March I8-I9, and April I-2, but locations have not yet been determined. Students arrive on campus to look up their name and go to the room with their type of read- ing as part of the competition. Teammates com- pete against five or six others in that round for three rounds. The scores are tabulated and I2 people from each event advance to semi-finals. The semi-final scores are tabulated and six are chosen from each event to proceed to finals. ln the evening there are awards given to the win- ners. Mrs. Poppema states, "The members mostly doing serious pros, including, 'The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich,' two pieces on mental institu- tions, one on child abuse and a humorous piece on Ex-President Richard Nixon." 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- ment she replied, "Noi We are too small. It takes at least 40 rooms for a small practice tourna- ment." 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 Hatch, sophomore. 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." Plays spurt talen ts, fun The Drama Department, under the direction of Mrs. Edye Ruoho, was full of energy. 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 worth it." 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 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 Kalinski, construction, Joan Sambulak, publicity, Cindy Tadevich, lighting, Ray Remen, sound, Cindy Kalinski and Alanta Lucas, costumes, Annette Merklin, make up, Danny Damiano, screen designer of the garden, and Evelyn Taylor handled props for the play.

Band hits hi I1 note Music is very much alive here in Apache Junc- tion. We have many different kinds of music as well as people that are heard around our cam' pus. In the fall one can hear the sounds of band music flowing thru the air, on the way to the lunch area. These cheerful tunes are coming directly from the football stadium where the marching band is practicing for their halftime shows. There are some members of the band who work hard then go to state competition with their instruments and music and compete against other high school students in the valley. The band attends two band days each year, one at U of A and the other at ASU where bands from all over the state come and compete for ratings. The band received an excellent rating at'U of A. As well as doing halftime performances in the foll and competing against other schools for rat- ings, the band comtinues throughout the year to bring music to the ears of everyone who enters our campus. "From accompanying the cheers and poms dur- ing pep assemblies to being a pep band at bas- ketball games, the band supports us," said Band Director Eugene Anderson.

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 iacket. 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 more places. The club officers include President Cheryl Hamilton, Secretary Kendra McKinney, Treasurer Roland L'Heu- reaux, and Representative J. R. Harper. TOP LEFT - Soph. Jodi Seeman and Frosh.

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 Rhonda. Week long preparation ended Friday with a Barbeque, football game, crowning of King and Queen at halftime, and finally a dance. "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- .. gg., ..-. B -Abs 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 floats. 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.

Even ts add special touch 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 Jr. Miss Pageant led by Mr. and Mrs. Nussear of Apache Junction.

School celebrates Lost Dutchman 'S The annual Lost Dutchman Days Celebra- tion was celebrated Jan. 28, 29, and 30, starting with a three day rodeo. This rodeo 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 Lost Dutchman Days Parade, which began at I0 a.m. on Jan. 29. The parade started off at Delaware and traveled east on University to Roadrunner Pork, northeast of Bayless Plaza, where it cameto on end, - A new addition this year was six hot air balloons which traveled the course of the parade. There were many other attractions which included an arts and crafts show, carnival, rock show, barbecue, and a variety show. A few of the high school organizations which participated in the festivities were the Cheerleaders, Rodeo Club, Marching Band, Spanish Club, and the Drama Club.

They've added a new teacher, film- strips, three new calculators and new textbooks for Algebra l," said Miss Barbara Furtaw, depart- ment head. A new teacher, Mr. Tom Olmstead, ioined the staff when Mr. Ron Allie, former math and art teacher at Apache Junction High School, became the Apache Junction Jr. High School principal. Mr. Olmstead teaches general and consumer math, and plans to someday have a program with different general math classes aiming at mastering certain levels of basic arithmatic. Mr. Chris Beatty and Mr. Lamar Watkins teach Algebra. They feel that our math program pro- vides skill in the use of numbers for all students. Miss Barbara Furtaw, who teaches Basic Math, Pre-Algebra, and Geometry, feels our school pro- vides very good pre-college math education courses for those students who plan to go on to higher education, 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 department. He's from St. Louis, Missouri and is replacing last year's teacher Mrs. Wanda Cleve- land. Mr. Short teaches practical science, he is also the line coach for the football team, and he's the new track coach. The Science Department acquired blood pres- sure kits, stereo microscopes, and some animal specimens. Mr. Robert Sill, department chairman, said that the Science Department provides students with the basic knowledge in science, acquaints them with the processes of science, and helps them to solve current and future problems in the scientific age, ,,,,,,...'-f- .0 4 J tw 2, lik 2 I 1 ,Ury - ...iff g a WF 'WM f .

Speec peps up English "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 interviewer. 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. TOP RIGHT - Frosh.

Also a new teacher has been added, Mr. Roy Beikman, who teaches accounting and beg. typing. When Mrs. Karloff was asked what was different about the department this year in comparison to last year, she said, "During second semester we are 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 said that, "As the enrollment increases we would like to add more courses, i.e., data processing, and insurance."

The department gained a new teacher for the automotive classes, Mr. Greg McAllister, and he replaced Mr. Gilbert Juarez. New equipment consisted of two welders, ten more drafting machines, engine hoist, tool cabinet, engine stands, metal lathe, glass beader, paint gun, and many small tools. The shop classes are doing a little more engine rebuilding now than they have in the years before. Auto body and painting has been added to Auto lll. With the reorganization of the shop, Basic Auto gets time in the shop for practical work. When asked what contribution the department makes to our school, we got the following responses: Mr. Gla- zier - "We teach vocational skills and 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. TOP RIGHT - Juniors Skeeter Harrison and Tina Trotter show visiting Junior High students the shop equipment.

Academics soar up 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. Mr. Charles Ludwig says that the department makes the contribution of making students do homework and handing it in on time. Mr. Ludwig and Mr. Jeff Moynes feel that the depart- ment also makes the students aware of everyday life. Mr. Ludwig's and Mrs. Celeste Wise- man's future plans for the department are to make geography required, and to make world history into an elective. There was a totally new Special Ed. program in effect this year. Mornings were set up for the new occupational classes of reading and social studies. Afternoons were set aside for the LD Resource Program. 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.

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 performing talents." 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.

Varsity scrimma es 'Class A 9 opponents for lst season loss After winning their first State Championship last year in Class B football, Apache Junction moved up to Class A and compiled their second most winning record. The Prospectors, picked to finish second in the central division by "Prep Sports Magazine," did so with a 3-1 record, bettered only by Aio's first place 4-0. AJ was 6-4 overall, compared to their best record ever, 10-2, which they registered last year. This year's offensive unit scored 212 total points in 10 games for a 21.2 average per game. Their defensive unit held their combined opposi- tion to only 150 points for a 15.0 average. Apache Junction will be losing eight starting seniors this year. They are Fullback Dale Diulus, Tailback Pat Marquez, Ends Steve Wolf and Daryl Kirscher, Centers Bob DeBaw and Dub Jackson, and Guards Keith Spors and Billy San- tistevan. Other graduating seniors are Defensive Back Henry Landavazo, Guard Dale Specker, Ends Jim Young, John House, and Glenn Cornn, Tackle Art McColgan, and Kicker Fernando Quin- tana. Even though the Prospectors lost I5 seniors, over half of them starters, they should have expe- rienced players returning in all positions except split end. 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 54-29. 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 quarters. 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.

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 Indians 59-O. Coach Trotter said the team's biggest strength this year was unity. The team's weaknesses this year were lack of size and lack of number of players. ' The team did not have a statistician this year, but the leading scorers were Hugo Huerta, Chuck Ehmann, and John Brown. The leading ground gainer was Hugo Huerta. The offense in seven games scored 158 points while the defense has given up only 46 points, Coach Trotter said it was a good team effort on defense. Hugo Huerta and Doug Johnson have the most tackles on defense and the lead- ing passer was John Brown. The toughesti J contests of the year were Gilbert and Ger- ard. Eleven experienced players were back from last year's 5-3-l squad. JV got off to a good start by defeating the Gilbert JV squad 8-6 in a hard hitting football game.

S N 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- son. 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 game." 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 season. "Most of the ability is at the quarter- back spot with David Santistevan and Chuck Celis," said Head Coach Dan Maietich. "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 Coach Maietich. 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 league title.

A gs. .. ff M9 Varsi t courts rival cagers "We really should go to state," stated Head Varsity Basketball Coach Cy Henry, "we are beginning to play up to our capa- bilities." 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- lenge the No. 1 team in the conference, it 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- 53. "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- tor Huerta with 10. "The team played very well considering the long bus ride," Coach Henry confessed. "Team scoring is our main strength, everyone scores well," said Coach Henry. "Good free-throw shooting has evened most of our games," he added. Team strength lies in scoring, free-throw shooting and defense, said Coach Henry. "Everyone scores well," said Coach Henry. "Good free-throw shooting has won most of our games, and we are begin- ning to press very well. We miss too many easy shots, though, and if we begin to rebound well we will really be hard to beat." 34 TOP RIGHT - Senior Guard Pat Mar- quez drives for an easy layup against non-conference foe, Mingus.

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 said. The JV Team has had some prob- lems with iniuries with Larry Karkos, Charlie Hunt, and Glenn Beaumont, all with ankle iniuries. Hustle and good field shooting are the top strengths of the team with lead scorers being Tim Holder, 13.3, Larry Karkos, 12.3, and Den- nis Doerfler, 10.1.

T-E as ,kits 51" fy 1 1 I F rash cagers dunk teams The Freshman Basketball team worked well together this season with fair ball handling. The strong points on the team were fast breaks, speed, and defense, said their coach. Chris Beatty, coach of the Fresh- man Basketball Team, said the tough teams played were Coolidge and Parker. He said he likes his team to play man-to-man. The Freshman Basketball Teams' leading scorer was David Grabner. The best offensive player was David Santistevan, and the best defensive player was Alan Rey- nolds. Most valuable player was David Santistevan. The problem, which has been faced on the team, is the loss of their high scorer, David Grabner, to an iniury. Freshman players, who worked hard on the team were: David San- tisteven, GF, Chuck Celis, G, Mike Euliss, G, Ron Bennett, F, Steve McDonald, FC, Paul Gruner, F, Alan Reynolds, FC, Jeff Bracken, G, David Tomazin, FC, Johnny Ells, GF, and Rene Huerta, G, con- cluded Coach Beatty.

Their first game was against Mari- copa in which the girls won 5l-l 5. In the second game against Ray they were to experience their first loss with a score of 37-27. In the following game against Xavier the team experienced another 37-27 victory. Later that week Maricopa was again whipped by AJ, with the girls winning by 5l-27. The Gilbert Tigers coached by their former coach, Jim Pastor had the pleasure of their own defeat of 42-39. The team was given the road to conference when the girls played a close game with the Coolidge Bears 42-44. They were to experience the sec- ond loss of the season when they played the Phoenix Indian Bra- vettes. The score was 65-43. In the game with Eloy two Prospectors Licia Graffa and Patti Peck fouled out of the game, but that didn't stop them since they whipped past Eloy with a 46-37 victory. The next game was with Coolidge in which the girls lost with a score of 56-44. The Aio Raiderettes lost their game to AJ with only 5 personal fouls, 35-45. AJ again defeated the Bravettes and went on to the Ray lnvitationals. Ray defeated the girls and later the girls were defeated again by Sahurita. The next game the Prospectors encoun- tered was with Eloy, another vic- tory of 53-27. The last two games of the season were aggressive even though the Prospectors lost both of them. The first loss was to the Ger- ard Redcoats and the second to the Xavier Savers. 40 ' TOP LEFT - Grab that ball!Jump- ing for the ball in the game against Maricopa on Dec. 6 is Joy Hays as Karen Price, and April Graffa look on.

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. TOP LEFT - At a home game against Aio, Junior Mary Marshall serves the ball and scores.

'IE 5 Wrestling spotligh ts coa chin Eighteen years of wrestling and coaching put Wrestling Coach Glenn McMinn in the ASU Hall of Fame and All American for three years. 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- ing. Some ofthe most commonly used holds are double leg take dawn, fireman cradle, hip lock, and half nel- son. lip lock and full nelsons are some holds that are illegal. 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.

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 Smith, secretary. 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. it 5,4 i In ' BOTTOM RIGHT - Sophomores Kathi Smith and Robin Ritter "talking about the match."

Sports Banquet goes potluck 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. TOP LEFT - Sr. Dale Diulus receives trophy for football.

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 scholastic standing. 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 desired manner. 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. l y -J . ,. 3 5 Y 'im '..c " 4 ' 'Af 1,89 ,,YL .

"The main problem with getting the club together was getting it through the Student Council and having our first meeting for setting up rules," said Miss Wright. Sponsoring the club are Mr. Dan Maie- tich and Mr. Cy Henry, both high school teachers. Club officers include: Julie Wright, pres- ident, Robin Roberts,'vice-president, Bonna Cummings, secretary, and Claudette Hav- l erfield, treasurer. The club has 65 members and is still growing. When asked how she feels Miss Wright said, "I enioy working with everyone in the club. I feel that our club will really accom- plish alot these next three years of high school, and our Senior Trip will be a big success. Everyohe in the club are hard workers and devoted ones. We also need a Sophomore Club to get the class of '79 unified." "YR xy! TOP LEFT - Sophomore Chuck Ehmann is caught by surprise when hunted down for the Prospector's sophomore candids.

These volunteer athletes, under the sponsorship of Track Coach Robert Short, are also improving the high iump by putting in new runways, and are helping the pole vault facility by pres- enting it with a new runway and vault- ing box. This volunteer improvement proiect was not done last year, but was intro- duced recently by Mr. Short and Mr. Landavazo. In fact the track is shaping up so nicely that it looks like all they need now is new landing pits for the high lumps and pole vault, said Mr. Short.

"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- spector. 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."
