H S S i G Q DEDICATION To Our Men in Uniform: We dedicate this book to all who, in the service of our country, are following our flag around the world in the hope that the peoples who have asked our help may eventually have the freedoms that all humans are born to share. While our Wildcats have been evading guards in sports contests, you have been dddging sniper fire. While we have been doing homework, you have shared a candy bar with a war orphan and risked your life to bring medical aid to wounded comrades and injured civilians. It means much to us that you and others, whom we may never know, are giving years and lives in the hope that the peoples of the world may eventually live in peace and harmony. We are proud of you . . . of the job you are doing and proud to be Americans. We send you our thanks, our blessings, and our prayers.

The Steelworkers strike had closed Phelps Dodge operation the middle of July and no settlement was in sight. With help from company credit, union allowances for lunchroom tokens and books, most students began school with the necessary books and supplies. Following registration, life was readjusted to the sound of alarm clocks and school bells. The first weekend found freshmen struggling up the mountain to whitewash the "M" and sophomores welcoming new students with a dance. ln rapid succession came meeting new teachers and the taking of individual and senior pictures. Excitement bubbled as our school sweaters came out of moth balls for the first home football game. All too soon came mid time of the first grading period. Some students were proud while others resolved to work harder next time. LAZ Y SA TURDA YS, above, found football fans adding spirit to I V. games.

Student and faculty enjoyed the World Series on study hall television. Excitement was high as Saint Louis took the first game. Juniors signed for the PSAT test and senior girls packed and repacked clothes to take to Senior Day in Tucson. October was also the month for initiating new club members. A seven week first grading period gave beginning linguists and typists time to gain more skill before report cards. As always some were happy and some resolved to work harder. Then came Halloween. Some of us embarked on trick-or-treating and the girls attended the All Girl Costume Party. 0cToBER BRINGS First report cards, 9-...,?. PRACTICED ROUTINES by J.

AUTUMN FINDS November, the month of holidays, arrived and with it came The American Education Week and Open House, giving parents an opportunity to discuss students' grades. Copper Cat staff members made their final subscription campaign. Piggy banks and Dads' wallets suffered with demands for flowers, as sons and daughters made dates for the Girls, League formal. Seniors were found changing stage sets and make-up for their class play, "Boys and Ghouls Togetherw. Hearts saddened by the Vietnam deaths of Stanley King and Robert Draper, former Wildcats, were comforted when the American Legion established an Athletic Cup in their honor.

We did last minute shopping for family and friends as music groups practiced extra hours for the Christmas program. After school on the fourteenth, Student Council members decorated the hall tree, but the student body never saw it. By morning the snow was a cold two feet high and a holiday was announced. All weekend it snowed and Monday found school dismissed for a long vacation with games and programs cancelled. Almost cancelled too, was Miss Alvillarfs wedding, but a determined groom, David lvan, finally dug through the drifts and the wedding was only five hours late. STUDENT Council trims tree.

NEW YEAR FINDS Teachers with snow As '67 departed and '68 arrived, many found themselves breaking resolutions. School began as we picked up threads broken by our combined snow and Christmas holidays. Stage-struck classmates auditioned for the annual Dramatics Club assembly as the basketball squad triumphantly returned with a trophy from the EAC tournament. Snatching extra hours to study for semester tests, seniors realized that their last year was already half gone. Teachers encountered a tidal wave of tests, papers, and report cards. Former driver's training students, transferring into PE. suddenly acquired sore muscles, while those switching to study hall had time to hunt books and do reports.

Clockwatching temporarily replaced girlwatching as track and baseball superseded basketball. The second week in February was exciting for all upperclassmen--thrilled juniors ordered their class rings, and solemn seniors, who were measured for caps and gowns, and ordered their announcements, suddenly realized high school was almost over. Weeks of work, time, and determination paid off when the Drama Club presented two successful plays. Patti Forsythe earned special recognition for an outstanding performance in "The World Withm.', Three year school veterans auditioned for their class play and later took the National Merit Test, hoping for a scholarship.

Tracksters could be found running up and down hills and round and round the football field, while sackers practiced at the diamond. Students attended Career Night hoping for help and information for post high school plans. The scent of sulfur smoke was welcomed on lVlarch 19 as the strike was ended and Phelps Dodge resumed operation. Extra cash was earned to buy helpers at the annual Slave Auction in support of next year's AFS program. Three years of hard work paid off as six students were initiated into National Honor Society. Planning, sewing, and modeling practice staged a fine fashion show at the Spring Open House. Welcoming Easter vacation, many students caught up on sleep lost earlier.

He was met by his American parents, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Hoffman, daughter, Barbara, and son, Eddie. Annop, quickly nicknamed Andy by local students, is quiet but quick to make Hiends. When school began he enrolled in English, social science courses, and typing. Andy was an active participant in Student Council and a regular attendant of school activities. During second semester Andy spoke before several community organizations about his home country. The end of the year brought mixed emotions to Andy--he regretted leaving America, but happily anticipated reunion with family and friends. .f-Q A 2 37 ' , , K if 1 in s HELPING WILDCAT MASCOT keep up team morale.

As the seasons changed, "Winter Wonderlandv was chosen as the theme of the Girls' League For- mal. Red and white streamers, snowmen, Christ- mas trees and a sleigh, transformed the gym in- to a frosty scene.

Because of the shortage of teachers, especially in the ele- mentary fields, Mr. Davidson had interviewed graduates from state universities and many col- leges in southern states in order to find qualified and desirable personnel for all the local schools. The strike affecting local economy inadvertently brought about the postponements of plans for a new elementary school building. The primary strike problem was the unstable population and the inability of the school administration to pre- dict the enrollment for the 1968-69 school year. Mr. Davidson received his B.S. degree from Daniel Baker College and his M.A. degree from Sul Ross State. He is a member of many organi- zations including the First Presbyterian Church, Rotary Club, Phi Delta Kappa, ASA, and AASA. BOARD OF EDUCATION Mr. P. H.

Between phone calls he handles fac- ulty questions and students' many problems, plans for sports and extra curricular events, and some- times finds time to visit classes. In addition to his administrative duties, Mr. Lemons co-spon- sors student council and participates in the Clifton- Morenci Rotary Club. He also enjoys hunting, golf, and watching various school athletic events. Mr. Lemons received his Bachelor of Arts and Masters degrees from Arizona State University. A new addition to the Morenci High faculty was Mr. Roy Claridge, assistant principal. Mr. Clar- idge received his Bachelor of Arts in Spanish and Education from the Brigham Young University in 1959. ln 1964 he received his Masters degree in Education from the University of Arizona. His favorite hobbies include photography and hunting. Last summer he worked as data processer and an economic analyist at the University of Arizona.

ANHP' ' SCHOOL PERSONNEL Help students, give advice on problems One of Morenci's unique advantages is that the teachers have an unusually wide educationalback- ground and experience. The eleven new faculty members have eighteen degrees from nine differ- ent colleges and universities scattered across the United States. The newcomers are: Mr. Lara, Miss Comegys, Mr. Goodner, Mr. Morgan, Mr. Caddell, Mrs. Allen, and Mr. Wheeler. Mrs. Galusky and Mr. Boling came to the eighth grade from other local schools. ln the vocal music de- partment Mrs. Mueller taught the first semes- ter and Mrs. Kreus, the second half of the year. Besides classroom instruction teachers spon- sor activities and sports, and find time to help pupils with both scholastic and personal problems.

ART STUDENTS Study history, basic painting techniques Emphasis on history was the key for students enrolled in art classes. Much class time was spent viewing pictures and slides on the projec- tors. Studying all phases of art from ancient man to the present enriched the students' knowledge. During the course of the year the students tried their skill on sculpture and ceramics, increasing their perspective ability. Beginning with the pri- mary colors, the artisans worked their way up through blending and mixing to create an infinite number of colors and shades. Putting this know- ledge to use they proceeded into portrait painting. At the end of the year the results of the students' efforts were put on display at Open House and at the Greenlee County Fair. They brought many complimentary remarks from the visiting public. HUME ECONOMICS STUDENTS Learn to sew, cook for future families The understanding of fabric nap and grain, cor- rect pattern fitting and finishing details were im- portant items to be learned before the girls cut out their dresses. Finally the creations for the Spring Fashion Show were completed with hems and hand work. A variety of materials and colors ranging from psychedelic prints to soft pastels were used to make date dresses, sports clothes, and formals. Tantalizing aromas drifted through the halls whenever the amateur homemakers be- gan to cook, and all boys who could manage hall passes drifted past kitchen doors. The classes also stressed nutrition, child development, fam- ily relations, money management, good groom- ing. Films, records, reports, and group discus- sions also added student interest in the two begin- ning and two advanced home economics courses. NINA WEISLING--B.S., ASU, M.A..

Charts were posted to keep students up-to-date on their progress in speed and accuracy. ln advanced typing, office machines were emphasized, as class members became acquainted with calculators, ten-key ad- ding machines and with the electric typewriters. After they learned the new alphabet, future se- cretaries gained speed in taking dictation in short- hand, while future businessmen mastered the ba- sic fundamentals of the keeping of records in book- keeping class. The general business and consumer economics courses put emphasis on the usage of many public, personal, and banking services. 1 , V V - S Apwtt SPEED AND A CC URA C Yare important facto rs in tah- tsi, 'iit" S ing timed writings learns shorthand student, P.

Students who had never driven be- fore are given a chance to do so under a trained instructor. Mistakes were common as novice dri- vers got the first feel of operating the school car. Visual aids used included films, depth percep- tion tests and specially prepared models, which helped accustom students to the rigors of modern freeway driving. Mistakes were common as the students gained experience. The bewildered girls were taught the working of the engines powering today's automobiles. Specially prepared reports were given throughout the year to answer one an- other's questions in nontextbook areas. The young motorists, having gained experience, were sud- denly caught in wild race to switch their classes. When their one semester course came to a close, they searched out new adventures and experiences. BEING TESTEDfor peripheral vision is Vl Montoya. CON CEN TRA TI ON was important dur- . .... stv.

Each year six books must be read by all pupils. Notebooks are continued through all four years in order to give continuity to the English courses. Supplementing textbooks and discussions were interesting films and records used for emphasis. Correct writing is stressed in all courses be- cause communication skills are essential in every occupation. Vocabulary building is also stressed. Films narrated by Professor Peterson, nation- ally known writing teacher, were shown to junior classes while studying techniques of comp.osition. In the freshman section, listening training was taught by tape recording and spelling was assis- ted with the overhead projector.

Mathematics is needed in all fields and all stu- dents study it for at least one year. It requires exact working, since almost right is always wrong. Six classes are offered to students. They in- clude: Algebra l, ll, Plane Geometry, Beginning and Advanced General Math, Advanced Math. Geometry develops sound ideas without the us- age of description, measurement, or observation and involves geometric terms, fundamental state- ments and definitions. ln Advanced Math stu- dents must understand real and complex numbers, vectors, and polynomials, whereas Algebra helps minds to reason logically. Students review their knowledge of basic fundarnentalsinGeneral Math. A picture is worth a thousand words, but in Math an equation is worth a thousand pictures. 'HOW WOULD Iflnd the lateral area of these?" wonders Duane Sexton as he gazes at various geometric marvels. 42 V-:Ulf aw, "LET'S WORK A real problem this time," comments Louis Garcia to Lynda Ham as they demonstrate slide rule.

Fifty bar-dips was the announced goal, but it was reported that classes had only attained fifteen or better. Com- petition always adds zest to sports, so intramu- ral tournaments were held for many of the Sports. National Fitness tests showed evidence that the summer had left many of the boys "out of shapew. The sports the youths played were football, bas- ketball, volleyball, softball, soccer and wrestling. The rhythmic sound of hand to rubber could be heard as girls participated in fast action volley- ball games. They soon realized that the summer had left them stiff and uncoordinated butproblems were forgotten as they joined in hard basketball and speedball games. Dancing was a new activi- ty this year. Modern, folk, and square dances were taught. The eighth grade girls participated in touch football, jump rope routine, and squad leaders. The track meet was held in the spring.

This year, a new model of the human ear was used in biology classes to acquaint the students with its intricate structure and function. Among other de- vices used were films, slides, newspaper clip- ings, and special reports given by the students. Radioisotopes and their uses for mankind were studied by enthusiastic chemistry students. Ex- periments with radioactive uptake by plants and an- imals produced photographs of radio autographs as students measured the radioactivity with Gei- ger counters and Slacer rate meters. Other spe- cial projects done by the students were molecu- lar models, drawings of atomic structures, ex- periments, and a terrarium for two land turtles. An outside speaker, Mr. Wright, from Bell Tel- ephone Company demonstrated the laser beam and told of its future uses in science, industry, communications, medicine and security purposes. 111, Q' 'W TWO LONELYtfigures. top, watch pre-l1olidaNvsr1o1L'.

Busy though they are, custodians are always ready to give ahelping hand in the schoolis many activities. The lunchroomstaff, artisans of food preparation, have hot meals ready as hun- gry students storm the cafeteria. Besides the students, lunches they serve special dinners for the Senior Banquet and MTA-Lions Club Dinner. The office helpers aid with the routine clerical duties. These six generous girls gave up study halls to record absences and run errands. Fifty- six librarians also gave up study periods.

Q E LOYALTY T0 OUR FRIENDS "At lastl", cried the seniors of '68 as they reg- istered for their classes for the final year. With eleven long years behind them, they looked for- ward to their twelfth year and ahead to college, marriage, or a job. For many ofthe boys, how- ever, graduation would mean military service. During the year there were the usual activities, plus some for seniors only. These were: the ACT Test, applying for scholarships, registering for college, the senior play and elections, ordering announcements, and the renting of caps and gowns. The loss of family income as a result of the long, long strike, made college plans uncertain for many students. The increased military com- mitments in Vietnam and the new Korean tension added to the uncertainty of the boys' future plans. Finally ...... .. the night of May 31 arrived. With mixed emotions seniors donned cap and gown for the graduation ceremonies. As proud parents waited to see their sons and daughters, the cere- r monies began.

Then he sent the remaining group to the small village carnival. With Buddy and Dirga finally alone, her parents expected them to immediately fall in love. Gran- ny, however, anticipated the need of a love potion. The returning group was shocked to find Buddy and Dirga engaged. But this wasimmediately bro- ken when lsobel introduced her new boy-friend, the Magnificent Marvelini, who fell in love with Dirga.

The hard-working underclassmen set a reputation for hustling as two of them letter- ed on the varsity football team. All were enthu- siastic as they found laboratory sciences, typing, and foreign languages on their schedules. As the school year progressed many changed to "clutch hitting" and drivers training classes were packed with sophomores ready to apply for driving per- mits. With the arrival of junior class rings, came envious looks from tenth graders and anticipation at the thought of ordering their own. By the end of the year, sophomores had achieved a feeling of responsibility towards activities and post high school plans and prepared for upperclassmanship.

JUNIOR HIGH STUDENTS Elect homeroom and student council leaders The bewilderment of lockers and crowded halls was evident as 164 students faced their first year in the high school building. Helping them to un- derstand the confusing new schedule were patient homeroom teachers. Class elections were held and chosen officers organized the hall patrol and worked on the seasonal bulletin board decorations. Junior high Pep Club members made creative paper-mache mascots that were displayed athome football games. Four dances were sponsored by the homerooms at various times during the year. Each six weeks the Wildkitten staff developed a three page newspaper under the sponsorship of Mrs. Edgar Davidson and Mrs. Fran Galusky. When the spring graduation arrived awards were given to students for outstanding leadership, scho- larship, citizenship, and all-around girl and boy. WILDKITTEN STAFF are: Front: T.

YOUNG Joumuusts Gather news items, produce a weekly paper Keeping eyes and ears open, Wildcat reporters A gathered news to relate to the students and faculty through the school newspaper. Current school events, amusing anecdotes, and other affairs of importance were written and fit into the mimeo- X ' graphed Wildcat. Producing a weekly instead of the bi-monthly paper, the journalism class was kept busy writing up-to-date stories in first hour. Devoting extra hours the young journalists sold candy at home Junior Varsity football games and hot coffee to help warm football fans at the var- sity games. Money gained helped finance the an- nual Quill and Scroll Banquet held in the spring, when several staff members regularly attain mem- bership in this international student honor group.

Thus, during the year members learned some of the fun- damentals of acting, make-up, and stage craft. Many different kinds of plays were discussed for the annual assembly but since the production would be on Valentine's Day club members decid- ed to have a love-sick comedy and a dramatic- comedy. The plays chosen by the sponsors were "Billy's First Datei' and "The World Within". Au- ditions were held and the casts chosen in January. The casts not only had the problem of memor- izing lines and different moves on stage, but fur- niture had to be found to set the stage for each scene. Others were busy backstage prompting and applying make-up. The sponsors and direc- tors of the plays were Mr. Schultz and Miss Vote. OFFICERS, front: Y. Benavidez, publicity chairman, J.

Club membership is restricted to students who have completed or are enrolled in the language course. Communicating with Frenchmcn by writing let- ters helped develop good writing techniques, while tape correspondence helped the neophytes acquire an authenic accent. This accent was practiced as members undertook caroling during the Christ- mas celebration. Presenting an annual assembly jointly with Spanish Club required writing original skits to illustrate cultural contrasts. This pro- gram interests many students in language courses. Pins were distributed to qualifying club members. FRENCH CLUB OFFICERS INCLUDE Seated: Lyn- da Vanaman, president, Janice Wood, vice-president.

This was the familiar quotation used by sponsors, Mrs. Ellen Vandervort and Mr. L. P. Lemons, when round- ing up the members. Meetings were held every first and third Thursday of the month. Although the organization itself was not a governing body, they practiced governing methods. The council only planned the activities of the year and were considered an advisory group. The energetic members endeavored to fmd ways to raise money for the AFS fund. Among the annual activities is A the slave auction. Other activities sponsored by J if the group were: a dinner for the Greenlee Coun- ty Association of Student Council, a Christmas party and Christmas tree trimming, and a potluck in the spring. The four officers and our foreign exchange student attended the state convention. HORS D'0EUVRES AND newspapers are enjoyed by visiting Duncan student council members before dinner.

This year's prizes for the best costumes went to Rebecca Ortiz, Ma- . f f- ry Morales, Sylvia Sigala, and Mary Arguellez. Girls were found in the gym when the week of November ll rolled around adding red and white trimmings for the annual formal dance. An at- tractive setting and romantic mood set by a "Win- ter Wonderlandl' theme was enjoyed by many cou- ples. King Ben Murillo was elected by the mem- bers and crowned by president, Mary Ontiveros.

SPIRIT BOUSTERS Hold rally, bonfire, lead yells at games The spirit of our school is found in the student body, but the cheerleaders ignite it. Pep assem- blies are their first responsibility and they some- times added spice by presenting a comical skit. The girl quintet planned a rally and bonfire early in the football season. Colorful and informative posters alerted the students for the coming games. With the change of sports seasons, there also came a variation in uniforms. The varsity cheer- leaders switched one-piece red wool dresses for black shifts. The junior varsity pep squad added their touch of diversity by changing from black corduroy jumpers to drop waist, pleated uniforms with polka dot trim. The enthusiasm of the eighth grade cheerleaders sparked their classes' spirit.

I found out--it was with the help of many wonderful people. No editor makes a yearbook. She is only a part of the framework. I would now like to give thanks to those who have helped make this pub- lication possible. First to Miss Marjorie Johnson. Without her this book would never have gone to press. I am at a loss of words in try- ing to express my gratitude to her. Then to a staff of some of the greatest kids anywhere. They may not have always liked it whenl said, "Re-do.,', but they did so anyway. They have shown patience and understanding far above and beyond the call of duty.
