L ,Q I This year's yearbook is dedi- cated to one of the best teachers Morenci has, Mrs. Ellen Vander- vort. Known by many students as "Mrs, V.", Mrs. Vandervort has taught in Morenci for 20 years. After receiving her A.B. Degree from the University of Nebraska, Mrs. V. taught Botany at the U- niversity of West Virginia until coming here in September, 1956. ln her 20 years at Morenci High School, Mrs. Vandervort has giv- en and shown her teaching abili- ties and talents of understanding to many students. Whether disec- ting frogs, locating human bone structures on a skeleton or just reminiscing about early teaching days, Mrs. V. did not bore her classes, but made them exciting. Also a Student Council sponsor for many years, Mrs. V. boosted the meetings with her happy en- thusiasm and uplifted the "faint in heart" with her encouragements. With her sponsorship many acti- vities and special days have been added including Sloppy Day, Slave Day, and College Visitation Day. AFTER BECOMING "Arizona Teacher of the Year", Mrs. V. was introduced to Mr. Jenkins, if Z President ofthe State Board of Education, by Superintendent of Public Instructions, C. Warner. Mrs. Ellen Vandervort Mrs. Vandervort, ur Friend. .Arizona's Teacher of the Year Active in educational and local Mrs. Vandervort organizations, is a member of Theta Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma and served two terms as president of the Mo- renci Education Association. Al- though living north of Duncan, Mrs. V. has retained her membership in the Morenci Chapter 39 of the Eastern Star and became Worthy Matron in January. Mrs. Vander- vort is also a member of the Dun- can Town Planning Committee. Named "Biology Teacher of the Year" in I966, Mrs. V. was hon- ored this year when she became "Arizona Teacher of the Year". Students and fellow teachers alike crowded the library to watch her as she appeared on "Today in Ar- izona", a state television program. Mrs. V. was nominated for this honor by the school's administra- tion, teachers, and student body. Mrs. V. will retire this year. Though Mrs. Vandervort will be missed very much, she will al- ways hold a special place in the hearts of her students, the faculty and all her many, many, friends.

Ar- chaeologists have determined that Arizona has been inhabited for at least 10,000 years. This makes Morenci's heritage rich and varied. The early residents of Arizona were nomadic hunters who entered this area in 9500 B.C. They e- volved into three distinct groups: the desert-dwelling Hohokam, the Anasazi, and the Mogollon in the White Mountains. By the 1500's, when the first Europeans arrived, there were fifteen separate tribes. After Spanish adventurers con- quered Mexico, opportunists be- gan to explore northwards.

False tales of wealth led Coronado to launch a major expe- dition. He returned two years la- ter knowing much more about the Southwest. His expedition put an end to exploration for forty years. The next explorers were led by Spanish priests in 1609. The em- pire of Spain had begun to spread northwards. Father Eusebio Kino, one of Arizona's early pioneers, started a chain of missions in 1687 that spread to the Gila River. Af ter Kino died, Arizona was lected until the Jesuits came. friars of St. Francis were next 1767. All of the tribes except Apache, who came to be a received missions in The first years of Mexican pendence through 1830 were ful, because the Apaches had calmed. Land grants brought miners, ranchers, and During this period, mountain came to Arizona. These were advance guards of English-speak ing pioneers, who contributed t the impatience felt with the la Mexican rule. This growing dis content, as well as other factors erupted into the Mexican-America War in 1846. By 1848, the terri tory north of the Gila River wa the property of the U.S. The re mainder of the state was acquire in the Gadsden Purchase in 1854 Even though the Arizona are claimed to be southern sympathiz ers, Charles Poston was able t pass a bill in Congress to mak Arizona an official U.S. territory President Lincoln signed the bil on February 24, in the year 1863 By 1886, various governors had brought order and civilization t the territory.

A. P. K. Safford set up the first public school system in 1877. Copper found at Morenci, Bisbee, Ajo, and Jerome, along with silver at Tombstone, enticed settlers. Most of the tribes were placed on reservations, and the marauding Apache Chief, Geroni- mo, had surrendered. The first university was founded in Tucson. As the wealth and population of the territory increased, several bills aimed for statehood were in- troduced into the U.S. Congress, but were voted down. In 1903, a joint statehood bill with New Mex- ico was introduced, but Arizona legislators refused to consider it. They vowed to fight any policy that would cost Arizona her name, i- dentity, or history. An enabling act signed by Taft, the constitution drawn up, and Arizona became the THE DESERTED club and garden of old Morenci soon will be gone leaving only memories. The Arizona Territory Major Copper Strikes 48th state on February 14, 1912. Since Arizona's birth as a state, it has grown to over two million people. Arizona .is noted for its' agriculture, tourism, and mining, but it is mining that has become the backbone of the state's econ- omy. Arizona is the major cop- per producer in the U.S. today, with Morenci contributing more than 12.8696 of its' total output. The Morenci area in 1902 was producing around 675 tons of pure refined copper each month. By 1912, the town had survived a ma- jor strike, and had rebuilt after a large fire. Closing the mines in 1931, the depression stopped the boom. The town returned to life in 1937 when Phelps-Dodge began stripping for an open pit mine. It was dedicated in 1942, and pro- duction was up to 425,000 tons of ore a day in 1943. The moving of the picturesque town three miles down the mountain, and the open- ing of the Metcalf Open Pit Mine in December, 1974, are the latest developments in Morenci's history.

This was a real test for courage as students closed their eyes and pricked themselves. At the beginning of the year students began to realize how complicated living things are. Genetics was studied for two weeks. Pigs were disected towards the year's end. Studying about fossils, primi- tive man, and the earth was fas- cinating to Earth Science students.

Instead the Stu- dent Council decreed for initiation, that name tags would be worn for one whole week to introduce the freshmen to students and faculty. Many freshmen were troubled by jammed lockers, tardy slips, and homework. However, most of them solved these problems. A bicentennial theme was cho- sen by the inexperienced frosh for their first excursion in floatmak- ing. Mother's cupboard and the store were raided for napkins and frame wire collected. Time ha- rassed the iloatmakers as Home- coming approached, but their ef- fort was rewarded when they re- ceived third place. Arnold Es- pinoza and Barbie Marin were se- lected as their sports attendants. Class members took part in many activities, including girls' volleyball and basketball, and al- so boys' football and basketball. W w, ii . ' B +30 QFTQ 3 J, . if V W ' N N . -.

Spirit was there as class com- petitions were held throughout the year. As sophomores, the class participated in the spring "Spirit Week" and placed first after two weeks of preparations. Also, in spring, class rings were ordered. Eventually paint, napkins and rolls of chicken wire became the class float.

Rally Discipulo, our foreign ex- change student, arrived from the Philippines in August after a for- ty-eight hour flight. I-Ie is staying with his foster brother Bill Nunez. Living with an older brother and sister in the town of Echange, Is- abela, Rally attends a school of 8,100 other students. The high school there begins with the ninth grade and goes through college. After a day at school, instead of visiting, sports, or cruising, the students go out to work in the rice fields. Almost every family owns a field and raises their own rice. Rally hopes to pursue a pro- fession in the field of agriculture. Enjoying everything about Mor- enci, Rally especially likes his fos- ter parents and his favorite class is Physics. He was happy to see Morenci's first snowfall because he had never seen snow before. Rally is friendly, well-liked, and has been welcomed by both the students and the community. ,pf 1 1 is ,s.jg1tff pp , -e-----.-...L LENDING A HAND, Rally helps with an experiment in Physics. TIMING is the secret as Rally juggles balloons at Drama Club Party, Un AFS Trips Rob Bartee and Maria Carabeo, both seniors, were able to partici- pate in the AFS summer program. Rob spent the summer working on a farm in Fyn, Denmark. His foster father was a farmer, his mother a nurse, and he also had T a brother who was eighteen. Dur- ing Rob's stay he says he raised a calf! A ten day tour included a short trip through East Germany. Another week was spent in a Boy Scout Camp outside Copenhagen. These were among the highlights of his two month summer trip. Maria went to Ghana, Africa. She was the lucky recipient of the Readers Digest Scholarship which paid part of her expenses. Her foster father was an accountant, her mother a housewife, and she also had eight brothers and sis- ters. At an installation of a chief, Maria was treated as a princess. She met high officials, bishops, and the head of state. Maria also met juju men who are similar to witch doctors and visited a day in the home of Shirley Temple Black, the U.S. Ambassador to Ghana.

Achievements As graduation rolled around, there was a special sense of pride and honor among the Bicentennial Class of 1976. Because this is a very special year, to rank in the top ten percent of the graduating class was an added bonus for all the hard-working honor students. A change in application regula- tions for college and university scholarships required that 1975 tax information be included. This caused many to be awarded late, although some scholarships were announced by commencement day. Another added feature of our country's birthday was the crea- tion of Bicentennial Scholarships and other awards given especially to Morenci's only class of 1976. The top fourteen students of the class were leaders in every sense. Many community activities, or- ganizations and churches were helped by their assistance. These people not only maintained high grades, but were the leaders in sports, cheerleading, and band, the head of the student body, the editors of the Wildcat, and Copper Cat, and several club presidents.

With eleven long years behind the class they looked forward to their last one and ahead to marriage, uni- versities and vocational schools. During their four years of high school, they participated in many activities. In their previous years activities. In previous years their float received three third places, but as seniors they placed first. As sophomores, rings were chosen. The picking of prom royalty and the planning of dance decorations were the main events as juniors. Only when the senior pictures were made, the ACT Test taken, caps, gowns and announcements ordered, could members of the class really believe they were em- barked on their last year. Then came scholarships, financial aid applications, and last of all mea- surements for caps and gowns. Finally ...... the night of May 28 arrived. With mixed e- motions, seniors donned their red and black caps and gowns. With the receiving of diplomas from the Board of Education, the class was proud that no other Morenci class would have diplomas like theirs. Only this class would have the bi- centennial emblem on the front of their diplomas. At last, the high school career ended for the Class of 76 . . . The Bicentennial Seniors.

All of a sudden it's the end of the year, the last deadline, the last page. So I linger, not quite know- ing what to say. This year has taught me so many things, I have had to make decisions, coordinate twenty-five individuals, and keep ahead of human nature. It's hard to keep a staff working towards a common goalg it's even harder to smooth out the differences among them. I know that I have achieved something more than a yearbookg the kids on staff have taught me, and have helped me to grow. Al- though I am sad to know that this book I have worked so hard on is done, I am ready to go on, I look forward to whatever may come. There are many people I would like to thank for this year, people who helped me make the 1976 Cop- per Cat a good book. First of all, many thanks to the Administration for our own room. Thanks also go to Mr. Scheier, who made us frames for all of the yearbook a- wards. I would like to especially thank Mrs. Troxell for her "His- tory of Morenci, Arizonan, which was the background used for most of the theme. A big 'thank you' to Roy Faulkner for keeping track of our books, and to Miss Snell for supervising candy sales. For the lady that makes the Copper Cat, Miss Marjorie Johnson, a big hug. To Robbie Bartee, my head photo- grapher, and to my other photo- graphers, thanks for the good pic- tures. Now for my staff: WE DID IT! I'm really proud. This has been a good year, in spite of the problems and hassles. Thanks to all of you, the Copper Cat is done.
