1978 Copper Cat
Dedicated to Miss Johnson, "33" Year Adviser
5,11 , t
' frahm -
It is with much love and admir-
ation that we dedicate this year-
book to Miss Marjorie Johnson,
who has made the Copper Cat pos-
sible for 33 years and has given
her service as a teacher for 36.
Graduating in 1936 with a B.S.
from Ball State University, Miss
Johnson taught Art, Biology, and
Business classes in Rome City,
Indiana. Next she taught in Pao-
li, Indiana for three years before
coming to Arizona. At the Uni-
versity of Arizona Miss Johnson
began working on her masters in
Business and took the job in Mor-
enci in 1942 as a second semester
position. The trip up here was
most astounding, from Tucson a
bus was ridden to Lordsburg and
then to Duncan where a three hour
wait followed. From Duncan Miss
Johnson rode "The Spoon Brothers
Stage" to Morenci which entailed
coming up the old corkscrew high-
way from Clifton. Upon arrival
Miss Johnson was taken to the old
high school which was famous for
its circular outdoor fire escape
and eight half-stories with ground
entrances on every floor level.
When taking her job in Moren-
ci, Miss Johnson taught all of the
business classes offered, which
included Typing I, II, and Short-
hand. For some time she was ad-
viser to the school newspaper and
handled both it and the yearbook.
Later Miss Johnson gave up the
newspaper. For years she also:
acted as senior class sponsor-
Not only did Miss Johnson be-
come part of school life, she was
also active in community affairs.
She belonged to the Library Com-
mittee that established the firs
public library in the old shoppin
center. Miss Johnson is a char
ter member of the Theta Chapte
of Delta Kappa Gamma and has al
so served as President of Moren
ci Teachers Organization, work
ing on both the Welfare Committe
and as the Insurance Chairman
Miss Johnson was awarded th
Master Teacher Award from AS
in 1971 for dedicated service an
superior accomplishments as
teacher of journalism and advise
of publications. To say that th
yearbook has done well would b
an understatement. Under Mis
Johnson the Copper Cat has wo
15 First Class and 3 All-Ameri
cans from NSPA and 6 First Plac
and 11 Medalists from CSPA. He
hard work and effort has paid of
in producing some terrific year
books. Enduring those pressurin
deadlines was not easy but wit
Miss Johnson's help and patienc
we somehow managed to surviv
and get through the turmoil.
big "Thank You" to Miss J ohnso
for her many years of service i
teaching and for helping us, th
Copper Cat staff, achieve anothe
standard of excellence at MHS

fabulous, bizarre, frantic, challenging, scrambled
traumatic, beautiful year. Words could go on endlessly
describing it. Yet, there are so many left out, caring, sharing
loving, being, doing. But there's more than just words, it's US.
This year reflects each of us, how we changed and grew, the
terrific times, and the less than terrific times, though those
may be easier to forget.
The halls of MHS were filled with many sights and sounds.

are things words cannot describe, the rest is left for memories

Team Takes Second In State
Students shed their summer
clothes and took on winter coats
as the second nine weeks began.
Early in the month a mime
troupe from Safford
High School, KIMERA,
put on an assembly showing
drama techniques. That
evening the troupe gave a show
for the public. All
proceeds went to the
Morenci Chapter of A.F.S.
For the first time the girls vol-
leyball team took first place in
the State A divisional playoffs
then, to the state tour-
they were runners up.
The student council helped
organize the annual Open House.
November seemed a month
of holidays as school
was dismissed for traditional
Veterans Day and Thanks-
ceremonies took on a different
look this year when the tradition
al floats were canceled. Brenda
Kay Nelson and Steve Lopez
were chosen to reign as
Queen and King.
Early in December many
organizations began preparing for
holiday festivities. Student
council held the annual
food drive for class.
competitiong later they weighed
the food and decorated a tree for
the lobby. The French Club
also held a charity
food drive, and a turkey pur-
chased from the clubs funds was
added to the basket. A
Christmas concert by
the Vocal Music Department
was given on December 15.
The first weekend in December
basketball season began,
with the Wildcats
playing in Saf-
ford and the Lady Cats in
Clifton. Then came
the two weeks of
Christmas holidays .............

School Dismissed with First
Returning to school from
Christmas vacation was agony
for most students because
it meant semester
exams. Early in January
the jazz ensemble competed in
a contest at the U of A,
where they received
a "one" rating. Snow! The
first major snowfall of the year
left most students amazed
and the administration
in a bind. School was dismissed
after lunch and a financial
aid program for senior
was postponed due to icy road
conditions. Near the end of the
month ten Southern Arizona
AFS students and their
host siblings paid us a visit.
Members of choir and
glee club participated in
a music festival. Early in
sophomores ordered class
rings. Hopeful tennis players
and trackmen struggled
to make the team. Seven
students attended the

American Field Service Club
ponsors Two AFS Students
For the first time the American
Field Service Club sponsored two
foreign exchange students. The
group sold tickets for the evening
performance of the Safford Kim-
era mime troupe, planned a raf-
fle, and collected books for the
local chapter's annual booksale.
to raise money for the students.
The club hosted eleven foreign
exchange students from Southern
Arizona on January 27-29. Repre-
senting a variety of countries, the
students and their "brothers" and
"sisters" toured the mine, mill,
and smelter. A basketball game
and a dance were also attended.
The weekend was capped by a pic-
nic and square dancing at Guthrie.
A short term exchange with a
high school near San Diego was
proposed. Members were given
the opportunity to live and attend
school in California while their
counterparts discovered what it
was like to live in a small Ariz-
ona mining town for two weeks.
Originating in France in 1914,
the American Field Service pro-
gram was started by a group of
volunteers. Active here since
1974, the club and the local chap-
ter raise the funds used to spon-
sor the foreign exchange students.

Copper Cat Staff
Covers Stor Of The Year In First Class Edition
Trying to keep up with steadi-
ly increasing publications costs,
Copper Cat staff members began
the year by selling advertisements
locally and in Safford. At home
football games, candy was sold.
Despite the first unorganized
days, freshman were taught the
fundamentals of constructing a
yearbook and soon settled down
to work on advertising pages as
their first assignment of the year.
Staff photographers not only cov
ered all school events, but took
portraits and group pictures for
if 4' football and basketball programs,
5 and for local newspaper publicity.

when the Thespians held their ini-

USING THEIR artistic flair, Kelly Hard-

struct the Venezuelan placards for iden-
tity when voting in committee meetings.
AMUN Delegates Work toward
Passage of Three Resolutions
Seven delegates, representing
Venezuela, attended the 16th ses-
sion of the Arizona Model United
Nations. In preparation for at-
tendance, writing resolutions and
a formal pro and con speech was
required. A half a credit in his-
tory was given because of the re-
search done by the participants.
Held on the University of Ari-
zona campus, February 3rd and
4th, 75 high schools and approxi-
mately 800 students attended. A
mock simulation of the real Uni-
ted Nations many students were
dressed in their countries native
costumes. Local delegates atten-
ded the Political, Special Politi-
cal, ECOSOC, Social Humanitari-
an, Disarmament and the Security
Council committees. There they
discussed terrorism, total nuclear
disarmament, racial and religious
rights, childrenls rights, and pol-
lution control. Heated arguments
resulted, sometimes ending in a
few walkouts or as in one case the
kidnapping of a Libyian and South
African delegate. The speaker,
who was from Boston, spoke at a
formal banquet on the recent pro-
blems facing the United Nations.
Venezuelan delegates, S. Towle
and P. Perkins became the Latin
American Block leaders, and pro-
blems in diplomacy resulted when
settling the agenda. Trying to
follow points of order was confu-
sing, these rules were often mis-
used. Many times the delegates
found they were voting on whether
or not they should vote! Somehow
though time was found to enjoy the
advantages of the Plaza Interna-
tional Motel like watching televi-
sion, swimming and going to the
nearest McDonalds for a Big Mac,
a shake or a bag of french fries.

as Philip Perkins decides on next move
and Edward Yetman keeps track of time.
Whether done just for fun, or
as a member of the "Wild Knights"
team, chess club members were
required to meet Fridays at noon.
Other days were not required, but
many met with some challanging a
close opponent hoping to move one
or two notches in their ranking.
Though the team played mostly
double and triple A high schools,
Morenci was one place away from
going to state in the 1977 Southern
Divisionals. Philip Perkins was
awarded a gold medal for having
the best first board record there.
When using the chess clocks for
a game, concentration and prac-
tice is important. In one hour a
total of forty moves must be made
or that chess game is forfeited.
A loss in memory caused the
"Wild Knights" to leave all their
almost new clocks and boards at
Buena school. When discovered
the school was contacted and the
precious equipment was mailed.

Lettermen's Club and IGAA are
honor societies for boys and girls
involved in sports. Athletes are
required to earn a letter in a var-

mission into either organization.
The Lettermen raise funds dur--

games. In addition to their tra-
ditional hamburger and hot dog
stand, the club also sold sodas in
the stands. The money raised was
spent on film used to tape sports.
The Interscholastic Girl's Ath-

buying film, the club also estab-
lished a scholarship for the out-

a word which readily describes sports. Competing is often a
very rough game, the practice, the sweat, the frenzy, the
winning. Winning, the ultimate goal.
The hassle of those long hours of practice ......... coming
home to a pile of homework ......... the exhaustion
. . . . . . . . . sleep coming the instantabed was found . . . . . . . . .
the exaltation which seered through the team, the crowd,
everyone when the game was going good and the score in your
favor ......... the excitement of a one on one sport, the need
to run faster, return that serve harder, or pin for a game win
. . . . . . . . . the harshness of swallowing a defeat and
congratulating the other team ......... the fun of a crazy day
of practice, joking, not really caring at all ......... the

Coached by the previous year's
assistant coach, Lynne Nuttall, the
Wildcats began preparing for the
first game. The squad traveled
to Bayard Cobre fo? their seaso
opener. The Indians scored firs
with a touchdown in the first quar
ter. Early in the second period
Steve Lopez rambled in for a T
from 3 yards out. However, Ma
gill missed the point after. Th
local team scored again, makin
the score 13-7. Cobre retook th
lead in the last quarter. With on
ly 38 seconds left to play, Magil
booted a 43-yard field goal an
lifted the Cats to a 23-21 victory
Against rival Safford, the squa
was plagued by turnovers. Thre
interceptions, two fumbles, an
120 yards in penalties contribute
to a 25-0 shut-out. Top rusher
included Borjon with 66 yards an
Valdez with 32. The defensiv
leader was Lujan with nine unas
sisted and eight assisted tackles.

the Fighting Colts' 20, and made
the final score of the game 46-14.
On October 14th, the Wildcats
traveled to Willcox hoping for a

victory for the local squad, 12-1.
The team took a double header a
way from the Indians, the scores
being 3-2 and 4-3. The Pumas
were also overcome by the power
of the offense and lost the game,

J .V. And Frosh
The J .V. baseball team began
the 1976-77 season by losing to
the Douglas Bulldogs, 4-10. The
defeat, however, did not discour-
age the squad, as they soon over-
came it and won Duncan, 12-10,
Willcox, 14-11, and, in a double
header, Deming, 10-1 and 10-0.
The Wildkats of Duncan barely
squeezed by the J.V. on the sixth
game of the season, 7-8. Miami
was also able to prevent the Cats
from getting another victory, 3-5.
Morenci and the Pumas from
Bisbee tangled in a contest, the
Wildcats coming out victorious,
10-0. In the first of two double
headers, the squad beat Thatcher,
11-2 and 6-2. In the second, the
Cats smeared Silver City in the
first game, 23-0. However, not
as bad in the second game, 12-4.

Two local highway patrolmen vis-

Business Education Classes
Learn Office Machine Usage
The first day of beginning typ-
ing, students began to learn the
keyboard, starting with home row.
Later on in the semester, one and
five minute timed writings were
taken. Just before Christmas va-
cation a greeting card contest was
held and prizes given. Business
letters, charts, and outlines were
also covered the first semester.
Advanced typing students soon
realized that electric typewriters
were different from manual ma-
chines. After becoming comfort-
able with machine operation, jobs
assigned included alphabetizing,
typing manuscripts, and making
masters for the spirit and mimeo-
graph duplications. The course
changed second semester to office
loaded during five minute timed
writings, and an additional wire
had to be installed in the room.
Bookkeeping students learned
to keep financial records and to
record all business transactions.
They also learned to figure wheth-
er a profit or loss had resulted
when merchandise had been sold.
Shorthand classes, open only to
juniors and seniors, first learned
the shorthand symbols for letters
of the alphabet. Dictation was la-
ter taken and then transcribed.
General Business classes sub-
scribed to "Current Consumerf'

Students Contract for Grades
Read by sophomores, junior and
senior classes, the novel To Kill
A Mockingbird dealt with the pre-
judices found in the 193O,s South.
Short stories, plays and poems
were analyzed when literature was
studied. Strange words, such as
onomotopoeia and pentameter me-
ter confounded numerous students
through all the poetry sections.

Freshmen classes had films on
Mark Twain and Shakespeare. In-
terest in creative writing was en-
couraged with mystery descrip-
tions of students in class. Then
for a game, classmates tried to
guess who was being described.
Through speeches and the acting
out of plays, sophomore classes
helped develop self-assurance.
Writing tasks were heaped on
students in junior classes. Hal
of the grade was based on these.
Split second reactions were tested
when the students were placed in
imaginary emergency situations.
Seniors were given two chances
to contract top test grades which
left them free to work at their own
pace. Grammar was not required
second semester unless a one was
desired. Four films on the Greek
tragedy "Oedipus Rexi' were sup-
plements to a reading assignment.
Students enrolled in Practical
English classes used ACE kits and
SCOPE magazines for their gram-
mar and literature assignments.
Student advertising posters were
made about imaginary products.

New Language Lab Speeds
earning ew Vocabularies
Students were confused as they
started learning the new vocabu-
aries in beginning foreign lan-
guage classes. Advanced groups
irst reviewed, then they learned
nany new words and verb tenses.
Slides of Europe were shown,
fter each chapter had been com-
leted, to the novice French stu-
s. Mr. Washington had taken
slides when he toured Europe.
Daniel Kaestli, the foreign ex-
change student from Switzerland,
was amazed when the second hour
Spanish I class gave him a watch.
The Spanish III class learned
about native customs and had a
cooking day, when they prepared
different kinds of Spanish dishes.
The Spanish classes now have
a new language lab, in which they
listen to Spanish conversations.

students, they used them to prove

Advanced Math students, after
reviewing Algebra, also learned
to graph the intersections of two
circles, lines, and circles. They
also investigated some Calculus.
Workbooks were used by Basic

classes to review multiplication,
division, subtraction and addition.
The classes also worked prob-

Host Several Guest Speakers
Several guest speakers in the
Science Department were featured
during the year. Nuclear techno-
logy was briefly explained by sev-
eral ASU students in a general as-
sembly. Later, these students
visited classes and talked about
careers and college plans. Mr.
McCluskey, a forest ranger, dis-
cussed forests, aerial maps and
also showed a spectograph. Mr.
Dixon, a Red Cross representa-
tive emphasized why blood dona-
tions were necessary to hospitals.
In Physics, radioactivity, force,
specific gravity, and sound were
some of the subjects studied. A
good working knowledge of New-
tons laws of motion was gained.
Pulley, wheels, axles, and incli-
ned planes were used in many ex-
periments to show their usefull-
ness and efficiency as machines.
The world of chemistry is both
interesting and baffling. In chem
istry, the properties of gases, wa
ter, and certain elements and com
pounds were studied. Symbol
and valences had to be memorize
for later uses. Chemistry II st
dents thoroughly examined th
mole and its many related prope
ties, including molecular volum
and molecular weight. All che
istry classes performed exper'
ments to prove several of the b
sic laws and theories of chemistr
In the first Biology lab, onio

i ' Q.,
REMOVING ceiling tile, Fillicana Onate.
The students had three months
of summer vacation, but not the
custodians, they had to work two
weeks before school began. While
the students were registering for
their new classes the custodians
were busy preparing classrooms.
Custodians constantly had emer-
gencies to meet. A slipping lad-
der, while black out shades were
being installed in the biology lab,
broke one of the water pipes and
the water started spraying every-
where. One of the men covered
the hole with a very large turtle
shell to prevent the water from
drenching the whole room. For
the rest of the day repairs were
made, so the school had no water.
By exactly 12:27 the lunchroom
staff had to have meals ready, be-
cause by 12:30 four hundred hun-
gry students were already in line
and ready to eat. Lucky students
were allowed to go for seconds.

Bizarre . . . .
describes, at one time or another, every person who has
attended MHS. Everyone is bizarre in their own way.
This only means different. Being different
I and your own person is a very special asset.
Those were good times when a joke was told in class
and even the teacher laughed ...... sitting with a
friend and talking about things that really
mattered ....... having a fight at home, then coming to
school and finding it wasn't so bad and "you" were
in the wrong ....... conspiring to play jokes
on an unsuspecting friend ....... walking your girl to
class and being late to your own ....... feeling
"out of it" in a crowd of friends ....... finding
that a teacher is a real person too ....... spending a
Saturday night at home with your parents and
enjoying it ....... anticipating graduation,
and then wishing it hadn't come so soon.

Soon Learn Building and Become "Wildcat
Scared and lost! These words
described most freshmen at the
beginning of the year. Freshmen
in the wrong class were a familiar
sight, but with the encouragement
of upperclassmen and teachers,
they soon began to feel at home.
To raise money, the class sold
license plates and brought food to
a bake sale. At the homecoming
game, they also sold hamburgers
and sodas to hungry spectators.
Estella Moroyoqui and Martin
Hetrick were selected by a class
majority to be homecoming atten-
dants for the new sports royalty.
Soon many freshmen were par-
ticipating in clubs. Others were
busy in band, Student Council and
sports, and some class members
soon seemed to become involved
in just about all school activities.

Junior Class Elects
Attendants For Homecoming
Beseiged by inflation and dead-
lines the Junior Class scrounged
for money-raising ideas needed
to obtain funds for the upcoming
prom. Hoping to contribute some
school spirit, they sold pendants
with Morenci Wildcat printed on
it. Water-drenched Junior car
wash participants, earned S70.00.
This year the Student Council
let classes elect the sports atten-
dants, instead of Lettermen and
IGAA club members. Elected in
the English classes, were Darr-
lyn McClellan and Frank Lujan.
College bound Juniors took the
PSAT-NMSQT tests. WOW tests
were given to help them find in-
terests and abilities in career and
job areas. Those few who earned
1.5 grade averages were accept-
ed in the National Honor Society.

Student Delegates Learn
Government Procedures, Develop New Insight
Ten excited juniors were chos-
en by faculty last spring to attend
Anytown, Boys and Girls State.
Girls State, located at U of A,
and Boys State, at NAU were ma-
jor experiences in the learnings
of working government. Primary
and general elections were held,
between the two parties of Nation-
alists and Federalists for county,
city, and state official positions.
Boys Staters had the choice of
taking the State Bar Exam or go-
ing to law school to prepare for
state legislature. Clayton passed
the State Bar and became one of
the five Supreme Court Justices.
Governor Castro, Secretary of
State Boling, and Superintendent
of Public Instruction Warner also
spoke to the Boys State delegates.
At Girls State, an all day trial
was held. It was complete with a
judge, prosecuting and defending
attorneys, a jury, and witnesses.
Three delegates were accused of
kidnapping little boys, however,
the girls were proven innocent
Upon arrival at Prescott, Any-
town delegates were settled into
cabins where counselors and pro-
spective friends were introduced.
Anytown songs were sung every
morning after breakfast on a hill
outside the dining hall. Punish-
ment for being late to any activi-
ty or for not participating in the
singing, resulted in the offend-
or running up that dreaded hill.
Attending classes and discus-
sion groups took up most of the
day. These included subjects on
astronomy, communications, ac-
cupressure, and self-awareness.
Free time, allowed in the after-
noon, also was filled with the op-
tion of hearing religious speakers.
A Buddhist monk, Catholic p
Darjon Sieke, Black Moslem, and
a speaker on the Bahai religion
lectured and answered questions.
Night life completed the even-
ings with relaxing and humorous
events. Oriental, Jewish, Black,
Irish, and Indian groups were or-
ganized to stage a Cultural Night.
During Talent Night, Anytow
entertained with skits and songs.
A sharing fire and party con-
cluded the last evening at camp.

From Costa Rica
Two Students Become Local
Through AFS, Morenci High
was fortunate to have two foreign
exchange students this year, Dan-
iel Kaestli and Patricia Gueverra.
Daniel has two brothers and two
sisters, his father is a director
of a street construction firm while
his mother is a housewife. Bol-
ligen, which is near Berne, Swit-
zerland, is a small village where
people live and commute to work.
Interested primarily in science
and mathematics, Daniel plans on
entering the field of engineering.
He misses his favorite sports:
soccer, ice hockey, skiing, and
sailing. In his spare time Daniel
enjoys reading and can play both
the flute and the cello. He lives
with the Carl Forstrom family.
Upon arrival to Morenci, Pat-
ricia found that her two years of
high school English were not much
help, but soon, she picked up the
language and could understand it.
One of eleven children, Patri-
cia lives in Los Sauces, San Jose,
a small community in Costa Rica.
Her father owns land and is a far-
mer, her mother is a housewife.
Patricia says Morenci is "pret-
ty", but thinks the climate is too
cold. Her favorite class is Ad-
vanced Math. Her hobbies include
karate. Patricia's hosts are Mr.
and Mrs. Bill Nelson and Brenda.
Taking trips sponsored by AFS,
Daniel and Patricia were able to
visit the Grand Canyon. Selected
to crown the King and Queen, Pat-
ricia and Daniel gladly participa-
ted in the Homecoming festivities.

Quill And Scroll
The local chapter of the Quill
and Scroll Society held its annual
banquet in early May, initiating
seven new members. Before the
initiation ceremonies, dinner was
served and the Mixed Choir pre-
sented a medley of popular songs.
Before the pinning ceremonies,
a special Quill and Scroll certi-
ficate of honor was given to Mike
Wilcoxson for four years of dedi-
cated service as a photographer.
Pinning ceremonies followed as
Emily Baughman, Donna Brice,
Philip Perkins, Kim Hardcastle,
Rudy Porras, Terry McLaughlin,

A pile of books, paper, and an

worked to be tops academically.
Some of them also held down jobs,
took care of homes, and partici-
pated in sports while maintaining
their high grade average. School
and community activities, games,
sport practices, and dates were
preferred to doing homework, but
for these students, the studying

Class Cf '78
Starts Last Year, Anticipates Commencement
Flashbacks of friends and fami-
ly, passed through senior minds on
graduation day. For many, their
senior year was a last fling before
going to vocational school or col-
lege, getting married, joining
armed forces, or obtaining a job.
During their high school years,
class members took part in many
activities. In floatmaking, they
placed fourth as sophomores and
third when they were juniors. By
their senior year, however, all
floatmaking had been cancelled.
For their own Junior Prom they
chose for a theme "Best of My
Love," with Prom King and Queen
Anthony Encinas and Cindy Mc-
Cormick Rutherford, leading the
Grand March. The crowning of
Sports King and Queen Steve Lo-
pez and Brenda Nelson highlight-
ed Homecoming festivities. Six
seniors helped the volleyball team
win the "A" South Championship
and second at state tournaments.
Class rings were ordered dur-
ing their sophomore year. Fin-
ally as seniors, announcements,
caps and gowns, and senior keys
were ordered early in October.
Many wore cutoffs and jeans
with ruffled shirts and blouses
for senior pictures. ASVAB and
ACT tests helped class members
in their career choices. Begin-
ning in January, the college bound
rushed to send in their requests
for financial aid and scholarships.

Beautiful . . . .
mphasizes the things we feel for our community. We have a
antastic school, but without a community to back us,
Je actually would have nothing.
The community does so much for us ....... receiving a
ooster Award for athletic excellence is very, very
ecial ....... so is sitting downtown under the
' ed, gossiping with friends ....... or landing that part-time or
mmer job ....... selling advertisements to local
nerchants and having them say
yes" ....... receiving a locally funded scholarship making
Epossible to attend college ....... having somewhere
go on Friday nights.
The community and its people are our assets. They help us to
rchieve and praise us when we do. .We'd like to
ay "Thanks" to our
. . . . . Communit

words cannot describe the pre-

f problems, trying not to com-
,lain too much, and goofing off
ghen there was work to be done.
edicated in the true sense of the
ord we may not be, but we have
ried to put out a good yearbook,
nd feel very confident that we did.
Without the help of many people
he Copper Cat would not be pos-
ible. First of all we must thank
he lady who has made the Copper
at "live" for 33 years, our ad-
isor, Majorie Johnson. She has

hould be expected, and taught us
any valuable lessons. To her

We can't thank you for working on
