We, the Senior Class of Morganton, do hereby set our seal to be affixed on this the thirty first day of May in the year of our lx)rd, nineteen hundred and sixty eight. John Mode Testator CHARLEY BUTLER, Prophet Prophecy Vat!? You darre to qvestion my authenticity?!! Vhy, jusst let me gaze into ; my crrystall ball, and I’ll predict vhat vill be in 1979. Firsst, ze madzic words: abra-cadabra, polyanna, teradactyl, polyunsaturate, iconoclast, cusheateth- | mean, vituperation, gazebo. Ach! Good, I can see, for the frost within the ball | is clearing! 1 can see it all now!! The official prediction is, in 1979: Thomas Howard Brothers is dogcatcher for Drexel. He’s the only dog- I catcher Drexel’s ever had who can call dogs in Latin. (Et tu, Fido?) Casey Baber has replaced Joe Pyne. Joe Bannon has replaced Walter Cronki te. Benny Houston is operating his own do-it-yourself crematory. Reverend Don Goare (formerly Alabama Fatts or the M.H.S. sot) is | valiantly leading a demonstration advocating the repeal of the 21st amendment. (??) North Carolina General Assemblyman, Mike Buff, is petitioning the leg- ■ islature to lower the maximum speed limit on 1-40 to 35 M.P. H (My, have times changed!) Congresswoman Karen Connelly is making a speech to a joint session of Congress. Listen: “. . . and furthermore. I abhor gaudy dress, I cannot condone the indiscriminate color combinations of the garb of our younger generation; therefore, I hereby submit this bill to change the color of stop signs from red and white to chartreuse and yellow.” Well, a T.V. show. Let’s listen: . . and now the Tonight Show with Johnny Black! I’m Ed McWaldrop, and now heerres Johnny!” “Good evening and . . . censored ...” I think Ill tune in Johnny later when he’s doing his Ygor routine. I wonder how his audience likes the show’ Hmm, here’s a happily married couple, Jimmy and Margaret Dunlap; they seem to be enjoying the show all right but my ball, it’s . . . it ' s fogging up, and er Let us see if Governor and Mrs. Whisnant (Remember? Sure you do! Scott and loudmouth Irvin!) —No. I can see they are not paying much attention to the Tonight Show. I think we should visit later. 49 Who is this? Why, it’s Wiley Gregory with a patch over his eye and a bottle in his hand, standing next to his “Sot”with Camel. The only medal ever awarded Gregory was a lead cross. The War Department hoped that it would be a sufficient weight to keep him out of the sky after accidentally bombing the White House. Bill! Bill Councill? With a mustache? Yes, it’s he. The only man on earth who would have a 1980 Rolls-Royce with “four-in-the-floor” and “tiger paws”. Walter Wall. I might have known. Standing in the driveway of his newly acquired Biltmore House. He’s polishing an Edsel. I wonder where we are now? “Las Vegas Casino, Adults Only.” Who could be here? Of course, Bruce Walker and Judy “Gamble.” Question: “Should a man offer a lady a Glasco?” Answer: “Only if she asks for it.” Try a Glasco 101 filter tip, menthol, and plugs for your chawers. Well, there’s good old Morganton High, the same as it always was. Even a blue and white Chevy Belair. And there is the Morganton High School football team. But who is that coaching? It ' s Wildman Saunders, naturally. And who is that young lady making ice tea for the team during half-time? The former Miss Nancy Phifer. Mais oui. What is this? A new golf club? It’s a Joe Patton autographed “Pro-model”. It’s called the “sand trap iron”. I think Joe has finally found an easy way to get out-of-the-trap. The Max Poteet sure-flight “floating ball” is Max’s remedy for his poor golf game. With his new ball, he finally broke three hundred. Gad s! There’s pretty Dereama Kelly standing near a coffin, Gary that is! Among the Morganton Globe Trotters are Crystal Weller, Cassandra Wil¬ liams, and Mary Ix u Dougher. “Bird” watcher Robin Bounous is galavanting around a glen. We ain’t got no teachers have we? We sure does. Debbie Greene, Lynn Anderson, Darcel Bradshaw, Susan Corley, Dorothy Conley, Crystal Whet- stine, and Rita Earley are all on the M.H.S. staff of rampaging instructors. There’s a Ford going 115 m.p.h. Who else could it be but Jimmy Williams? But where could he be going in such a hurry? To the “beach”, where else? Adamant politicians David Sigmon, Dennis Deutschle, Harvey Brewer, and Andy Patton are trying to decide whether or not to run Chuck Fleming for U.S. Senator. Artists Susan Houck, Tommy Williams, and Susan Hart are holding an art show in Paris. Vicki Browning, “Jabo”, and Linda Leonhardt are standing near their respective husbands at a very formal operatic extravaganza and are naturally discussing the vital matters of the day—or more generally termed “gossipping”. Bobby Denton is in the world finals in the Olympic tennis competition. Lindsay Browning is the head of the Browning Brew and Bilge Liquor Distillery. AGH! ACH! and YEOW! my crystal ball—it’s growing hot! It’s . . . un¬ dulating! Great “Scott”—it’s Susan Cash! No, it’s only her picture on a movie poster: SEE THIS SENSATIONAL MOVIE FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY! THE CRITICS RAVED! STARRING: SUSAN CASH, BORIS KARLOFF, ROD GANTT, AND SHIRLEY TEMPLE IN “FRANKENSTEIN GOES TO KINDERGARTEN”, now playing at the Hootchie-Gootchie-Hardin Drive-In Theater. Scene: The Library of Congress. “SHHHH!!” expectorates head librarian, Betsy Boger, to her exotic assistants, Lindas Williams and Adams. I don’t believe my eyes! It’s watermelon tycoon, Ralph Johnson, and his faithful little thumper, Toni Brown, who, by the way, is chasing him for a change. “Goodeveningkidsandwelcometothetopsinpopandmoldyoldiesandofcourse- goldies. This is your swinging, singing, vociferous, verbose, and verboten D.J., the bouncing baby boy with the cute little dimples, ELVIS LESLIE! Did you know that I’m the only D.J. here at WLS who parts the hair on his legs?” For the benefit of every senior at M.H.S., (and for a good laugh), ask Elvis what happened at “Richard’s Dock” one balmy spring afternoon. “Fortissimo! ARGH! You know the rules!” BLAM! Mahler von Mode just shot off the xylophone player’s only toe. (The player made the same mistake nine times before.) The Nord Deutches Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Mahler von Mode, is the only orchestra in the world with only three toes among the entire woodwind and percussion sections. Diplomat to Rome, Helen Farfour, is gootching the Pope. Gads! Samaritan Denise Beach is instructing underprivileged children in the art of dismantling a Steinway and then reselling it at Ramsey’s New and Used Junk Shop for a profit! Sirens Becky Bauguss, Rhonda Cunningham, Debbie Gantt, Mitzi Strick¬ land, Cathy Pope, and Susan Conley are scorching the silver screen with their incomparable radiance, charm, and in 99% of the cases, beauty. FBI man, Ronnie Puckett, has been assigned to the task of protecting the afore mentioned sirens from the impetuous lover, C.J. Saunders. Philosopher Carroll McNeely advocates the repeal of the 13th, 16th, 19th, and 20th amendments to the Constitution. Money-grubber and tax collector, Johnny Mayfield, and his magnanimous assistant, Wilda White, are enjoying life to its fullest as they assess the van Shook estate. What a droll coincidence that Bobby Reece and Walter van der Corput are pilots with Huneycutt Royal Dutch Airlines. Pinkerton men, Wayne Crosbie and Jack Abee, have been assigned to pro¬ tect themselves from each other and Hunt Riddle. The fuming effervescent fluid is so corrosive that it is mandatory that it be kept in glass-lined vats provided by Dixie Rollins, Inc. Dixie has always been filled with good spirits. Hell’s Angels, Philip Robinson, Donald Hunter, and Foamy Fonvielle are the only ones with mink-lined motorcycle jackets. Cute, content, and serene housewife, the former Nancy Bishop, is busily pinching tomatoes, thumping Johnson’s watermelons, and snatching frozen foods at her friendly neighborhood Blanton’s Supermarket. Jerry Whetstine is busily instructing his two sons in the art of football while his wife, the former Theresa Bower, is illustrating the epicurean rituals to her six daughters. Janice Clontz, Janet Browning, Janis Bryant, Sandra Gilmore, Lynn Hol- lifield, Sandra Isaacs, Diane Kincaid, Florence Avery, Barbara Lingerfelt, Janice McNeely, Susan Ratcliff, Phyllis Reichard, and Beverly Rockett are now Mrs., and are contributing much to the rapidly expanding city of Morganton. Attorney General Johnathan McMurray commutes daily from Morganton to Washington, D.C. in his private jet, a DC 35 by the way, built by McMurray Aircraft Company of McMurraysville, U.S.A., formerly Los Angeles. The former Kitty Arney is now in route to Paris for a rest after traveling with her folk-singer husband for the past two years. NASCAR drivers Steve Woody, James Wright, Austin Smith, Billy Duck¬ worth, Lawson Callahan, Ronald Taylor, Tommy Smith, Jim Shuping, Tommy Rippy, Dennis Powell, Eddie Meyers, Fred Cooke, and Randy Buchanan are all vehemently competing against one another in the annual “Costner 500”. Interior decorators Patrice Whisnant, Carolyn Webb, Mary Houpe, Sharon Tolson, Judy Spainhour, Diane Sigmon, Gail Robinson, Susan McNeely, Betty Denton, Zudie Cooke, Rita Brittain, Laura Clark, Cindy Hyatt, and Sherry McGee are working their dedicated hearts out trying to beautify the interiors of the world. Well, what about me-the Mystic Prophet of the Senior Class, good old Baron von Butler? What will I be? What is to become of me? The seething clouds of mist within my “crrystall” ball is becoming lucid; I can see it now! Yes! Ah, I knew it! The grateful people of the earth have erected a monument to me! What a lovely one it is, too; what a beautiful shade of marble, so shiny, with nice block letters. So, you vant to read the inscription.

Tadycafs 2968 The Ladycats once again refused to surrender their position as champions. Through diligence and dedi¬ cation, the girls won the Northwestern Conference Championship, only to come in second in the North¬ western Conference Tournament, losing to Marion by three points. The biggest disappointment was defeat by Shelby in the Bi-Conference Tournament; never- the less, pride in the team’s 22-3 record is still evident among the students.

Any coach will say, “A person can only get out of a sport what he puts into it.” The members of the golf teams of Morgan ton High have spent many untold hours of practice in perfecting their games, and six championship trophies prove this. These quiet, unassuming boys, with the encouragement and direction of Professional Joe Cheves and Coach Earl Broome, have continued a tradition unprec¬ edented by any other group in the school’s athletic history. Yet, they receive little glory or recogni¬ tion from the student body. Rather, enthusiam and unselfish devotion are the key factors which assure the excellence and school spirit that these boys display. 83 84 Organi af ions 85 Front Row: D. Sigmon, pres.: D.

Progressive civilization has evolved in man’s conquest to master the unknown. By seeking out and tapping new resources of knowledge, he has been able to overcome his ignorance and satisfy his thirst for learning. To continue this advancement, the theme of Key Club International for 1967-68 is UNDERSTANDING THROUGH INVOLVEMENT in the club, the community, the nation, and the world. The twenty-four members of the Key Club of Morganton High strive ardently to broaden their scope of education, to serve their school and community, and to meet the challenges of tomorrow by laying the proper foundations today. The Girls’ “M” Club is composed of those girls who have lettered either in cheerleading or basketball. Their main yearly project is the sale of programs at home football games. This year an additional goal of the club was an emphasis on improving and increasing school spirit. Cjirls’ Varsity y y ME ' Ml mm Front How S. McGill, V. Monroe, N. Phifer, M. Sakowski, S. Avery, D.

This year A.F.S. has sent us Gualtherus Ferdinand Gosef van der Corput of Ulaardinger, South Holland. Making his home here with Dr. and Mrs. John C. Reece of River¬ side Drive, he has become known as “Walter.” With the help of his American brother, Bobby Reece, Walter has become accustomed to our school and our way of life. As an active member of the student body, he has become an honor student, a senior class officer, and a class superlative. These accomplish¬ ments attest to his own capabil¬ ities and to the warm regard of ithe student body toward him. Walter has made friends through both his school activities and his community experiences. Walter’s interests range from the serious study of economics to the enjoyable association with girls. While here, he has enjoyed swim¬ ming, listening to American music, sampling different Amer¬ ican foods, and traveling to various places, such as Florida. During the last half of the year, Walter has spent much of his time preparing talks and pre¬ senting a comparison between the customs and social graces in Holland with those in America. Then, typical of any other iiember of the Senior Class, he las been caught up in the whirl }f preparation for graduation. After returning to his home, Walter plans to enter military service for his required term. He plans then to enter college to study economics. He hopes to be a businessman, possibly an ac¬ countant. Too soon, Walter must return to Holland and it is our hope that he returns with warm memories of his friends and experiences with students at Morganton High School. Assuredly, Walter has left with us an indelible impression of personal friendship for himself and his country. 93 Front Row: G. Allman, S. Ennis, A. Propst, M. Hogan, K. England, B. Hotchkiss, M.

Under the lea dership of Mr. Genet, this club has stimulated participation in the dramatic arts, as well as provided valuable training and experience for persons interested in pursuing a future in this field. Quill and Scroll Shrouded in mystery and elusiveness, the Quill and Scroll is perhaps the most elite club at Mor- ganton High. A chapter of the national organiza¬ tion, the Quill and Scroll recognizes only six of the most outstanding M.H.S. students in the field of journalism.

Instead, the club feels that sincere interest in mathematics is an important prerequisite for success, and one main objective is to help a slower student understand and enjoy math. Although this club had its start only a year ago, its reputation is widespread as a result of one of its major projects, a highly successful Spring Follies. Society Front Bow: M,E. Brown, A.

One recalls the long hours of tedious work, the organizing of ideas, the drawing and redrawing of layouts, and the writing and rewriting of copy. One’s mind easily fills with the many treasured Robin Bounous, editor Junior staff, Becky McIntosh, Phyllis Mauney, and Beth Hotchkiss (Not pictured: Cindy Harbison). memories —the memories of involvement, of achieve¬ ment, and of satisfaction. Yet, the year soon passes, taking with it the senior staff, who not only leaves behind a world of challenge and of personal satisfac¬ tion, but a part of itself— — the 1968 Cat ' s Tale!!

' y Whether lurking inconspicuously in the halls or quietly verifying the latest bit of gossip, the Cauldron staff carries on a tradition as old M.H.S. itself. Striving to pro¬ vide both students and faculty with a “brew of what’s new”, the staff compiles and publishes a paper worth reading — The Cauldron! Band The Morganton High School Band, composed of almost sixty student musicians, is one of the most spirited of all organizations. It is under the capable direction of Mr. Ray Babelay who is assisted by Mr. Jim Fisher. This musical group performed at all the pep rallies and football games of the 1967 season. They attended the Southeastern Marching Band Festival in Bristol, Tennessee, played at both the Miss M.H.S. pageant and the homecoming festivities at the School for the Deaf, and welcomed the teachers and new board members back to school at the beginning of the year. After marching season ended, the band began practice for their annual Christmas concert which was held on December 14th. They marched in two Christmas parades and also entertained some of the patients at Broughton Hospital with Christmas music. Front Bow: D. Smith, K. Duckworth, J. Brown, P. Campbell, J. Bryant, C.

Following Christmas festivities,came rehearsals for and partici¬ pation in the district and state contests. As they completed the year, the band held its spring concert where the senior members were honored. This year the majorettes were led by Mitzi Strickland, who is Miss Tar Heel Twirling Queen of 1967-68, and they presented interesting and intricate exhibitions for our enjoyment. For the first time this year, two additional awards were pre¬ sented to band members. First, each month the members selected one person to be featured as “Bandsman of the Month " in the News Herald. This gave recognition to outstanding members and called the attention of the public to their accomplishments. Second, at the end of the year, the “Best All-around Senior Bandsman” was chosen.

The twentieth of October would not consent to be an ordinary night. This Homecoming was to be a night to remember. As the spectators watched intently, the lovely sponsors and their escorts were presented on the field. Then, a hush fell over the crowd as the long-awaited announcement was made: “And now, ladies and gentlemen —Miss Homecoming for 1967-1968 —Miss Susan Cash!” Radiant through tears of happiness, Susan took her place under the ivy-twined arch where she received her crown from Tom Brothers, president of the senior class, and her roses from Miss M.H.S., Robin Bounous. Thus, the 1967 Homecoming assumed its place in the pages of M.H.S. history and in the hearts of the students. 118 DIXIE ROLLINS MARGARET SAKOWSKI Miss Honor Society Mtss Cats Tale BECKY BAUGUSS Miss F.H.A.

The band, directed by Mr. Ray Babe- lay; the chorus, led by Mr. Philip Genet; and Bill Leslie singing “Moon River ”, joined together to provide an air of sophistication and excitement. Tensions mounted as the procession of lovely candidates and their escorts was introduced by the gracious co-announcers, Tom Brothers and Vickie Monroe. The faint flicker of light played havoc with the rising emotions as each girl reached into the “Question Box”. With confidence and new assurance, every candidate presented her answer to an intent audience. “As selected by the candidates, I present “Miss Congeniality” . . . Miss Mary Louise Dougher.” Her shoulder band was awarded by Don Saunders and Mike Buff, co-captains of the football team. “And now, the eight semi-finalists are . . . Miss Sue Avery, Miss Robin Bounous, Miss Dorothy Conley, Miss Susan Conley, Miss Mary Lou Dougher, Miss Barbara Lingerfelt, Miss Dixie Rollins, and Miss Margaret Sakowski. The four finalists . . . Miss Robin Bounous, Miss Dorothy Conley, Miss Susan Conley, and Miss Margaret Sakowski.
