H.S. Student Body
lelcomes Exchange Student, Thomas Kiechle
Our foreign exchange student this

proximately 15,000. Six hundred
students attend the school in Tett-
nang that Tom will be returning to

There are thirteen required subjects
Tom must take at Monfort Gymnasi-
um, including three different lan-
guages, World History, German gov-
ernment, math, art, physics, chem-
istry, music, and geography. For a
pastime, Tom enjoys snow skiing,
swimming, traveling, chess and play-
Tom's host family was Mr. and

er and sister of the Jones family re-
siding out of town. Tom participated

ed one to Kitt Peak, the Hopi and
Navajo reservations, and a long hike
through the Grand Canyon. He also

exchange students will have a fare-
well get-together before departing

The new administration building
was completed in July and the su-
perintendent and the assistant su-
perintendent along with the book-

the move from the high school into

of the added space created by the
building. The principal and the assis-
tant principal moved into the former

intendent's office while the new
counselor moved into the office for-
merly used by the principal.

dertook a feasibility study to deter-
mine the need and cost of a new
high school building. Michael and

consulted for room designs. Com-
munity and student input was also
requested. The building is planned
for completion by the fall of 1981.

During the school months, stu-
dents were exposed to a great
amount of information through writ-
ing assignments. Highway driving
rules and laws were covered.
Various types of Drivers' Educa-
tion movies dealt with all areas of
highway safety. Many of these films
dealt with drinking while driving.
They were a very unpleasant sight
but they stressed the importance of
good driving. Local highway patrol-
men spent a day in the classes dis-
cussing various aspects of Driver's
Education. Students spent a week
working with the porto-clinic glare
unit which tested visual acuity, color
vision, reaction time, depth percep-
tion and glare recovery.

Business Classes Learn
How to File Income Tax Forms
The first weeks of Typing l were
very confusing as pupils struggled
trying to memorize the keyboard of
the typewriter. "F, f, f, space j, j, j,"
could be heard drifting out of the
typing room. Once the keyboard
was mastered, pupils began typing
tables and manuscripts.
Typing ll students worked to
transfer their typing skills from man-
ual to electric typewriters. Soon
after, they began working on as-
signed jobs which included tabula-
tion problems and mastersets.
Second semester the course was
changed to office machines. Stu-
dents learned how to operate differ-
ent types of machines and howto do
art work on stencils.
Bookkeeping students studied
how to keep financial records and
now to record business transac-
tions. They also learned how to fig-
ure if a profit or loss had resulted.
Shorthand pupils acquired a
knowledge of the signs and symbols
of the alphabet at the beginning of
the year. As the course progressed,
their knowledge increased. They
took dictation almost everyday.
Business Economic pupils learned
how to complete income tax re-
turns. They also discovered the se-
cret to balancing checkbooks.
Students in General Business
studied checking accounts along
with the reconciliation process. The
pupils also looked into careers.

Emphasize Basics of Grammar
Reading and discussing short sto-
ries from their literature texts, frosh
got a taste of high school work. The
climax, setting, plot and theme of a
story were some of the first things
they learned in literature.
The sophomore class did similar
things as the freshmen, but in addi-
tion to reading short stories, they
also read several poems and plays.
They studied the eight basic parts of
speech, sentence structure, and
Writing tasks were something new
and bizarre for the juniors. The as-
signments dealt with writing essays,
precises, business letters and out-
lines. The grade for these counted
as half of the nine weeks grade.

highest scores on a diagnostic test

signments, as were Vocab-u-lits

English classes. Book reports were
required every nine weeks. Term pa-
pers done by juniors and seniors
were graded in conjunction with the

French students subscribed for
the first time to the monthly maga-
zine, Boniour. This French magazine
had puzzles, cartoons, and other
material which enabled the students
to better understand the language.
They also learned to conjugate
verbs, to use direct objects, and to
form paragraphs from what they
had learned. Slides of Europe were
viewed to teach the students about
the various countries and their his-
Spanish students discovered how
to translate paragraphs into the
Engligh language. They made up dia-
logues and studied the customs of
Spain and Mexico. The Spanish lll
class prepared a dinner to which
they invited their mothers and some
of the faculty members.

Sewing was the main thing for the
Home Ec. and Survival for Young
Adults students when school start-
ed. Students first learned the fun-
damentals of sewing before going to
the more difficult task of putting a
garment together. They were gra-
ded on how well their garment fit
and the selection of material.
After sewing projects were com-
pleted, students started cooking.
They first studied nutrition from the
textbooks. Then the classes began
cooking simple things such as cook-
ies and different types of cakes.
After several weeks, the students
prepared more difficult dishes such
as lasagne, sloppy joes, and chick-
en fried steak. Each class of stu-
dents held a special luncheon for the
custodians, teachers, administra-
tion and secretaries.
Different hairstyles and applying
cosmetics were discussed and illu-
strated by a local beautician. As-
signments were made weekly from

Introduces Programming Class
Algebra I students began the year
learning the basics of math. They
learned to add, subtract, multiply,
and divide polynomials. Throughout
the year they worked on graphs,
variables, exponents, identifying axi-
oms and transforming equations.
One of the most difficult tasks they
accomplished was word problems.
After every chapter students took a
comprehensive test over all the in-
formation they had covered.
The first few weeks of Geometry,
the students reviewed what they
had learned in Algebra I, but in a
more advanced way, such as learn-
ing different proofs of angles,
planes, and most geometrical
shapes. Students had daily home-
work and tests after almost every
Students in Advanced Math re-
viewed the concepts learned in Alge-
bra II and applied them in greater
detail. They graphed parabolas, el-
Iipses, hyperbolas, and circles.
A new course, Computer Science,
was introduced this year. In this
class, students learned how to oper-
ate computers. They programmed
the computers and made flow
charts to show how the computers
used the programs. At the end of the
year, Mr. Pfaff showed the students
the full program they had been mak-
ing throughout the year. A trip to the
Phelps Dodge computer center
highlighted the end of the year.

Experiment to Gain Knowledge
"Do I have to poke myself?" Biol-
ogy students found it hard to gather
the courage to jab one of their fin-
gers for a blood sample. Once they
had procured a specimen, the blood
type and RH factor were deter-
mined. Genetics research and its so-
cial aspects were discussed. Labora-
tory sessions included work with mi-
croscopes and dissections of earth-
worms, clams, grasshoppers, cray-
fish, and piglets. Jim Dixon, guest
speaker from the Arizona chapter of

The Social Science classes cov-
ered a detailed description of the
United States history, constitution,
and problems from the distant past
to the present. Various classes in-
cluded U.S. History, American Pro-
blems, Current Events, World His-
tory and Geography.
U.S. History covered everything
from the landing of the pilgrims to
current affairs, wars, U.S. pre-
sidents, treaties and generals. In
early October Sharon Towle showed
slides of Washington D.C. Fun in-
cluded a farming game which dealt
with farmers in the 193O's.
Term papers were an absolute
must in American Problems. Stu-
dents were required to select a can-
didate who was running for office in
Arizona and follow his campaign to
the final vote. Class discussions
on topics ranging from patriotism to
homosexuality were held.
Newsweek kept students up-
dated with world problems and is-
sues in Current Events.
World History classes dealt with
various periods of time and places.
Study sheets and tests helped stu-
dents understand different people of
the world. Occupations and eco-
nomics of each region were investi-
gated. Films covering the Continent
of Africa and the specific countries
of Czechoslovakia, Great Britain and
Italy were seen.

weights, tumble, and participate in
daily exercises. Instructors stressed
the importance of both team work
Topics discussed in Health includ-
ed: the human body and how it func-
tionsg smoking and how it affects the
body: first aid, and drugs. Films per-
taining to these topics were also
shown. School nurse, Jared Smith-
son, visited the classes and talked
with them about sex education.
Also, a representative from the
Sheriff's Department came and con-
versed with the groups on drugs. He
showed the groups examples of am-
phetamines, barbituates, marijuana
and other drugs.

students had to pass a safety test to
assure their teachers they could op-
erate the machines safely. Carefully
sketched plans were required for
the projects students were to build.
Stools, chairs, tables, and other
pieces of furniture were constructed
by class members.
In auto shop, students learned the
parts of the engine and how the en-
gine works. A station wagon was
donated by the school on which the
auto shop students could increase
their skills. Students also worked
on their own cars and those of fac-
ln drafting, students worked on
orthographic projections which re-

"Ten Little lndians" by Christie
"Ten Little lndians" was not a
western but a mystery. Ten people
were invited to a secluded island by
a family that never appeared. The
guests died one at a time, each by a
different way. Everyone became
suspicious of each other until all
were dead except Phillip Lombard
and Vera Claythorne. Suddenly Vera
pointed a gun at Phillip and
squeezed the trigger. Constance
Wargrave came in to hang Vera, but
as the rope was around Vera's neck
Phillip killed Constance Wargrave,
and then he proposed to Vera
The play was performed for the
8th grade on April 15, 1978 and for
the public on April 16 and 17, 1978.
During the performance for the
eighth grade Phillip was going to kill
the judge, but the gun did not go off.
Finally the gun went off and the
judge fell to the floor.
Starting early preparing for the
play, the Drama Club had bake sales
to earn money for the make-up and
costumes for the play, "The lmpore
tance of Being Earnest". Auditions
were held in October for the regular
cast and understudies, with prac-
tices after school.
"The Importance of Being Ear-
nest" is a "farcical comedy" about
two heroes who assume false names t
so they can meet the girls they love.
The play satirizes society's lack of
In September, the Drama Club
held an initiation in the auditorium.

Student Council and
Copper Cat Initiate New Ideas
Student Council members, Rich-
ard Duran, Susie Denogean, Nydia
Borjon, Ramon Espinoza, and Tom
Kiechle, were sent to a state con-
vention at Arcadia High School in
Scottsdale. The members attended
seminars to receive ideas on dif-
ferent school activities.
As Christmas drew near, the Stu-
dent Council had a Christmas tree
decorating party. They also played
Christmas music during the last few
days of school before the Christmas
Council members earned money
by selling sodas and ice cream in the
student lounge. When the weather
got cold, they also sold hot choco-
late during lunchtime.
The homecoming festivities were
sponsored by the Student Council.
They sold helium balloons to earn
money to buy a crown for the queen
and an l.D. bracelet for the king.
They also washed the cars used in
the homecoming festivities.
Student Council entertained the
Student Body by crowning the first
Peanut King and Queen. The fresh-
men were forced to roll peanuts
across the gym floor with their nose
during a pep assembly. They also
raised money by selling tickets to
students who had an interest in
throwing a cream pie at their favor-

At the beginning of the year, ten
incoming freshmen staff members
along with Mrs. Sandra Hudgens,
staff advisor, joined the Copper Cat
staff. Following the new format, pro-
duction of the 1979 Copper Cat re-
sumed immediately. The upper-
classmen did pages assigned to
them the previous year, while the
freshmen studied workbooks on
yearbook design. In September, the
staff went to Safford and Clifton to
sell ads. As a new fund raising pro-
ject, the staff sold group and indi-
vidual pictures for all sports, the
band, cheerleaders and pom pons.
' The upperclassmen hurried to get
their pages done before the dead-
line, fighting for typewriters, doing
layouts, and writing body copy, cap-
tions and headlines.
The photographers spent time of
their own after school and on week-
ends taking, developing, and print-
ing pictures. The new photographers
got acquainted with the lab and be-
gan taking pictures.
Towards the end of the first se-
mester, freshmen were allowed to
put their journalistic talents to use
by doing pages of their own.

Science Club and Med Start
Take Various Trips Attend First Aid Seminar
The Science Club is an organiza-
tion in which the members partici-
pate in projects which are scientifi-
cally oriented. Club members went
on a field trip to the Sonora Desert
Museum where animals are exhibit-
ed in their natural habitat. Interest-
ing items included the Underground
Tunnel in which visitors are able to
get a close-up view of such animals
as ringtail racoons and kit foxes in
Another field trip was taken to the
Catwalk in New Mexico. Although
the trip was mainly for pleasure, stu-
dents observed many different
plants and animals.
Med-Start is an organization for
students interested in the medical
field ranging from pharmacists to
dentists to surgeons. Members took
emergency first aid classes which
were sponsored by the Clifton Med-
Start. The classes taught partici-
pants how to give cardial pulmonary
resuscitation and other basic first
aid techniques. Some members at-
tended heart lectures given by the

The lettergirls started off the year
selling candy, sodas and hot dogs at
the home girls' basketball and vol-
leyball games. The money raised
was used to buy letters and special
emblems for the volleyball members
who took state, but most of it was
put towards a videotape machine for
the women's athletic department.
Three scholarships were awarded to
girls to attend basketball and volley-
ball camps during the summer. An-
other scholarship was awarded to a
college-bound senior Iettergirl.
Lettermen's Club sold cokes and
press guides throughout the year
and held bake sales in the spring.
The Morenci Boosters Club took
over selling refreshments at the
boys' football and basketball games.
Four juniors were honored for
making the 1000 Club during the
first semester. They were required
to lift a minimum of 1000 pounds,
divided among the four types of lifts.
Russell Gaethje and Arthur Rodela
advanced to the 1200 Club and di-
vided the records between them.
John Forstrom and Bill Hoopes were
responsible for the individual rec-
ords set in the 1000 Club. A new
system called "plus points", was
formed, comparing a person's
weight to how much he can lift.

Returning with eleven lettermen,
the Wildcats hosted the Cobre lndi-
ans for the season opener. Two
missed field goals proved to be dev-
astating for Morenci as the game
ended in a tie. The Cats then met
the Clifton Trojans in the traditional
Copper lngot game which, because
of ill feelings between the schools,
had not been played for two years.
The Cats proved to be too strong as
they kept the Trojans from scoring
until the fourth quarter. Mike Busta-
mante led in rushing with 167 yards
and four touchdowns. The rivalry
proved to be the last of the series
since the Trojans later declined to
continue the annual tradition.
The Round Valley Elks galloped
over the Wildcats in the second out-
of-town game. Morenci was able to
score first when Mike Bustamante
rushed in from four yards out. In the
second half, the Elks struck back,
scoring six points. The defense could
not halt the driving onslaught of the
savage Elks, as they scored two

Defense told the story in the first
quarter as neither team could score.
In the second quarter, the Cowboys
broke loose and scored from seven-
ty-six yards out. Willcox scored
again in the third quarter but so did
the Cats making it 14-8. The Cats
failed to score again, thus losing the
game which would have put them in
first place in A-South.
The Cats knew they needed to win
against Ray to make things easier in
the A-South divisional race. No one
was able to score until the second
quarter, when Ray scored 14 points
to take the lead. ln the third quarter,
Frank Lujan ran in from eleven yards
out to score the Cats first touch-
down, but Ray was able to score an
additional 12 points. ln the fourth
quarter the Wildcats had a burst of
power as they rallied for 23 points to
win the game.
The fighting scuffle with the Pu-
mas tallied a win for the local grid-
ders. Bisbee scored first in the first
quarterg the extra point failed. Mor-
enci made good use of the remain-
ing 1:17 in the first quarter as John-
ny Valdez rushed in from four yards
out. The PAT was successful by
sophomore, Robbie Windsor. Bisbee
made a slight comeback in the sec-
ond quarter, but Morenci stood firm

The Junior Varsity football team
'had a successful season losing only
their opening game to AAA Douglas.
Two TD's were scored by Douglas:
one in the first 27 seconds and the
second in the last 36 seconds of the
game. Robbie Windsor kicked a 35
yard field goal against the Animas
Panthers, and the Cats goal line de-
fense held Animas on the one yard
line for four consecutive plays. Oth-
er highlights of the season included
Todd Dixon running a 75 yard inter-
ception for the only touchdown for
the Wildcats in a close Deming ball-
game, and Norman Trujillo rushing
for ninety-two yards in the Miami
game. The Ray game was cancelled
due to a flooded field in Morenci.
The Wildcats beat Silver City to
close out the season and gain their
sixth victory in a row. Paul Casten-
eda had the most tackles, 72, and

J.V.'s and Freshmen
End Season With Good Results
Anxious to begin their first season
of volleyball, the frosh squad defeat-
ed Duncan in a hair-raising game. At
one home game, Norma Morgan
made 15 consecutive serves helping
win the match. Coached by Geor-
giann Schneider, the frosh had a re-
cord of 5 wins and 2 losses.
The Junior Varsity opened their
season with five juniors and thirteen
sophomores. Even though the mem-
bers were somewhat experienced,
Coach Noralea Gale would repeated-
ly stress the importance of return
volley fundamentals and serving
techniques. The J.V. suffered a few
disappointing losses but finished the
season taking the final two games.
Their over all record was 10 wins
and 4 losses.
This year's freshmen and J.V.
squads received continued support
from local fans. They also showed
their school spirit and pride by
cheering for each other and the var-
sity at away and home games.

The Wildcats started off their sea-
son against arch-rival Safford. The
lead see-sawed in the first quarter
with Morenci ending up on top after
the first eight minutes of play. The
Cats continued to apply pressure to
the Bulldogs and finally came out on
top by 7. Donny Goodman and Hec-
tor Provencio led the scoring. Don

Renewing the Clifton rivalry after a
two-year lapse, Morenci soundly
trounced the Trojans and went on to

The Cats first loss was to an excel-
lent Deming Wildcat team. Deming
led from the tipoff to the final buzz-
er. The Morenci Cats made several
surges, but team fouls finally caught

game. Morenci was plagued with 51
turnovers, and shot a poor 51.596
from the free throw line. Don Good-

tral Broncos. The Broncos doubled
the Wildcats score in the first quar-

Opening conference play following
the holidays, Morenci's losing streak
continued as the Cats dropped close
games to Willcox and Sahuarita. ln
both contests the Cats were in front
throughout the game until relin-

The roundballers then traveled to
Thatcher where the Eagles were
hungry to revenge their only loss of
the season. The Eagles clawed Mor-
enci from the opening tipoff holding
a 51-16 lead at halftime. Although
the Cats were able to tally 54 points
during the second half, the Eagles
held on for a 27 point victory.
The Wildcats resumed conference
action with a victory over Ray to end
a six-game losing streak but lost to
Miami the next right by three.
Morenci and Clifton next met for a
return match on "The Hill." The Tro-
jans managed to stay close to the
Cats for the first 12 minutes of play
but couldn't keep us the pace as
Morenci pulled away for a 91-58 win.
The squad then traveled to Bisbee to
continue conference action. Playing
well, the Cats pulled out to a 20
point lead during the fourth quarter.
Bisbee refused to play "dead", how-
ever, and scored 15 points to Mor-
enci's 2 to get within 7 in the closing
minute of play. Morenci kept cool
and hung on for a 9 point win. Re-
turning home the team evened out
its conference record, 3-3, with a 15
point victory over the Sahuarita
Mustangs. The Cats then played at
Ray hitting 20 of 28 free throws but

its final regular season game to Bis-

Winning a coin toss, Morenci ob-
tained the right to open divisional
playoff action at home against Ray.
With the score tied numerous times,
the Cats had a two-point lead at the
end of the third quarter. The fourth
quarter was all Morenci, however, as
the Cats outscored the Bearcats 18-
7 and won by 13.
For their second divisional playoff
game, the Cats traveled to Bisbee.
The Pumas were not about to let
Morenci win on their court again and
totally dominated the game from
the opening tipoff. Holding the Cats
to only 8 points in the first quarter
while they scored 24, Bisbee built up
as much as a 27 point lead during
the game. The Wildcats were hurt
most by the Pumas 6'5" center,
Terry Anderson, who had 32 points
and owned the boards. This loss

Team Surpasses Ten Of Twelve School Recor
Under the direction of a new
coach, Mr. Jack Edens, the girls'
track team swept through a suc-
cessful second season. Beginning
training in February, many of the
girls discovered stiff and sore mus-
cles were a problem as they hobbled
through their daily workout. Prac-
tices were often long but varied. The
adventure and challenge of cross
country running spiced the long dis-
tance runners' workouts while tim-
ings and run downs confronted the
sprinters. Occasional wild throws
from the discus circle sometimes
threatened the safety of the runners
on the track. Heavy spring rains
made the track slippery and caused
all the Clifton track meets to be held
During the season, ten of the
twelve team records were broken,
often more than once. The long
hours of practice paid off when sev-
en girls placed high enough at the
district meet to compete at the
state championship. Shotputter Lil-
lian Espinoza captured second place
and Sandy Morgan hurled the discus

It was a familiar sight to see lost
freshmen on the first day of school.
Slips of paper with room numbers
and classes were carried by most of
the newcomers. They were har-
rassed by upperclassmen who led
them astray. When asking for direc-
tions they received remarks like
"Take the elevator."
Attendants for Homecoming were
James Barquin and Corinne Fras-

They then arranged for a public car
wash which netted the class ninety
dollars. In November, a more suc-

the class over one hundred dollars.

A dance, with music by the band
Sun-Trak, and bake sales were dis-

Delegates Startled When
Spiderman lnvades Boys State
High achievers from the junior
class were given entry forms for
Boys State, Girls State and Anytown.
Boys and Girls State workshops,
dealing with state government were
held at NAU and U of A campuses.
Anytown, an uplifting brotherhood
camp, was held near Prescott at the
Sky Y and Mingus Mountain camps
Governor Babbit, Secretary of
State Mofford, Congressman Rudd,
and Senator DeConcini, brought
separate views about real govern-
ment to Boys State. The state cau-
cuses were a jumble of arguements
about Parliamentary procedures.
Extra time was spent looking for toi-
let paper, which had been stolen
from the dorms. Spiderman ap-

and some lady lawyers were guest
speakers for Girls State. With the

Karen Elaine Paetz's city, Cholla,
won the contest for outstanding
city. Selma Shurtz reached the pre-
liminary race for Justice of the
Peace but lost in the finals. Selma
visited the Pima County Courthouse
and spoke with county officers
there. Her city taped their counselor
shut in her bunk as a practical joke.
Anytowners grew closer toward
their fellow man through workshops
on communications and human rela-
tions and with sharing fires and dis-
cussion groups. Some unusual work-
shops and events were: palmread-

as they kept their grade point aver-
age high, even though many of them
were involved in various activities.
These students were honored by
membership in various honor soci-

and Deena Lanphar represent their class at

Seniors were filled with excite-
ment about their last year when
they would finally "rule" over MHS.
To start their reign off right, they
had bake sales to raise money. The
income was originally going to be
used for the banquet at the Prom.
The banquet was cancelled early in
the year so the money was used to
purchase a marquee board that was
placed in front of the bowling alley.
Continuing into their year of reign,
seniors excelled in class competition
when they raised the largest amount
of money which provided food bas-
kets for the December flood victims.
While announcements, caps, and
gowns were ordered for graduation,
plans for the future were also made.
Some planned to continue their edu-
cation while others sought adven-
ture by enlisting in the Armed Ser-
vicel Other seniors planned mar-
riages and careers.
Anticipating the future, they start-
ed planning a ten year reunion at

Aid in Purchase of Scoreboard
The Boosters Club was very active
this year as they took over the con-
cessions previously handled by the
Lettermans Club and sold sodas and
food at all home basketball and foot-
ball games. The money earned by
the Boosters was used to buy
awards and trophies for athletes in
every sport. The Boosters also
helped sponsor many school dances
which were held at the Morenci
A new scoreboard was donated to
the school by Pepsi Cola Company
with one-sixth of the total cost being
paid by Boosters Club. They also ar-
ranged for Phelps Dodge Corpora-
tion to put the scoreboard up.
The Boosters Club officers were:

EDITOR, Sharon Towle: HEAD-PHOTOGRAPHER, Ed DeVaneyp C0-EDITOR, Esther Perkins.
At last the "great
experiment" is done! The
dramatic change of style and
layout proved to be an
enormous challenge which
often brought threats of
resignation from staff
members. But somehow we
survived with our new
advisor, Mrs. Sandra
Hudgens, struggling along
with us. We wish to thank
Miss Marjorie Johnson, our
former advisor, who trained
us for three years. We also
thank Mr. Roy Faulkner for
keeping our financial records
and the teachers for
tolerating us at deadline time
when we were late or
handn't finished our
assignments. Most of all, we
wish to congratulate the
staff, for suppressing your
desire to kill us. We know
you hated us when we made
you redo your pages a
Somewhere out there we
wish to convey our
appreciation to our yearbook
correspondent, Phil Dering,
for his help. To Ed Devaney
and the rest of the
photography crew, we have
to admit, we couIdn't have
done it without your pictures
Cwhen we got themj. To next
year's editors, we wish you
all the luck in the world. To
Mrs. Sandra Hudgens who
slaved to help us finish the
book, we thank you, thank
you, and THANK YOU! Finally
we dedicate this book to the
Wildcats who made this THE
YEAR OF THE CAT!
