If Miss Clemon's hunt-and-peck system fails to work?
If Miss Kindred ever really gets mad?
If Mr. Peterson ever gets mussed up?
If Miss Schulz understands all she says in Spanish?
If Mrs. Snyder ever overlooked a late book?
Miss Kindred--' I don't want mosee another paper like that,
young man!' All young men had better watch out, for that
familiar line comes from our grand English II instructor. Miss
Kindred is also adept in throwing a scare into her Latin I and
II students. fJust ask themj.
Mr. Peterson--'This announcement, please.' This familiar phrase
is used often by our beloved principal, our sympathetic friend
and advisor. A one-man team, he sponsors tournaments, lipstick
brigades, riot squads and fixes the trouble Altus High School
students get into.
Miss Young--'You're only a million dollars short in your cash?
She is our commercial teacher and she really knows her busi-
Miss Schulz--'Now let's get quiet, please.' .
These words were heard in History classes until recently when,
Miss Schulz took over the Spanish department.
Miss Kent--'All right, let's sing.'
Our vocal music director who is well known for producing contest
Mrs. Buckley--'Now, boys---'
Mrs. Buckley is our history instructor, She also has a reputat-
ion for being an efficient study hall keeper.
Mrs. White--'That's no good, try it again.'
Mrs. White is our second semester dramatics instructor. She
teaches all our aspiring young actors and actresses, and directs
the Junior and Senior class plays.
Mr. Griffin--'A over C equals the sine of angle A.W
Here's the man who is trying to make mathematicians of all us
Altus High School students who are thus inclined, and he's doing
a very good job of it, too.

Mrs. Lockhart--nwhere are your lab reports?H h
Mrs. Lockhart is our Physics and Chemistry instructor. When
you're in one of her classes, you will probably find out why a
ball falls down instead of up and why one shouldn't pour water
in sulphuric acid.
Mrs. Cross--nDo you want to give me some money?H
Without Mrs. Cross none of us could get anywhere around here,
because to whom would we pay typing fees and chemistry breakage?
Mr. Hilpirt--Wwe will have all of page twenty for tomorrow.'
Mr. Hilpirtzisour American History instructor, but as he himself
admits, his most important job is to fill the bill-as football
coach. For his first year at Altus High, we see his charges
fared well, coming outlurwinning eight games and,losing butttwo-
Mr. Upshaw--fGimme that clarinet, Ifll show you how it goes.N
Where this man goes, sweet strains of music follow. He has been
'with us for several years directing WThat Altus Bandn to the
state which fame it is proved to possess.
Miss Brogan--'Da lady dat learns us'n's English.W -
Miss Brogan has taught English at Altus High School for a number
of years and she has been the favorite of the Juniors since she
began being their sponsor ever since Mr. Peterson can remember.
Mr. Steeleu-WClean up, it's five minutes until the bell.W
Last year we found out that Mr. Steele could really be a school
teacher when he started teaching high school shop.
Mrs. Peterson--'Nothing succeeds like success.n
These are words which are often heard by English IV and Speech
classes. Mrs. Peterson is a sponsor of the Senior Class. She
also teaches college speech.
Mrs. Snyderm-'Now what do you want?H
Mrs. Snyder is the librarian, but she could be classed as the
teacher of everything. rIf there is anything you want to know
just ask her. 'Q

Miss Smith is a real booster of the Altus College and a loyal
supporter of the Altus High School. On the side she trains Navy
aviation cadets. -

The class of '45 made its first appearance in Altus High
School this year. Ever since we have been little guys in knee-
pants and gals in pigtajls, we have looked forward to attaining
Now that we are here, we find ourselves looked down upon
and being known as 'green Sophomores,' This doesn't worry us
for we are really a brilliant class.
Although we are mere Sophomores, we have some outstanding
band members who have won high honors. We are proud of John
Ried who is the Sophomore member of the Swing Masters dance band.
One of our prettiest girls was a candidate for football queen.
We elected as our class officers, Wayne Tripp, president,
Wayne McGee, Vice-President, and Bob Harrison, Secretary.
All in all, the Sophomore Class of 1943 through alertness,
congeniality, and progressiveness has gone and will continue to
go far in the days to come.

Eleven weary years have passed since a group of tiny tots
went wobbling up to some school house to begin their long re-
membered school days. These tiny tots are now just practically
ready to lick the world.
We, the Juniors, are mighty proud of our class. Among the
outstanding students of our group are those who have sacrificed
the tomfooling of their youth and have joined the armed forces
of the United States. Many of our best friends have gone to the
As an example of our prowess, we can tell of the long hard
battle which was fought to place 'Boozien Howard on the throne
as Football Queen. In athletics we have held the spotlight with
three of the first string basketball team being Juniors. A1-
though none of us fared so well in football, many stars are ex-
pected to come from next year's team. At the football banquet
at the last of the season, Bobby Hyde was elected captain taking
the honored crown and title from Gillespie.
Our officers this year are all boys, Bobby Hyde is Presi-
dent, and Tommy Balenti is Secretary-Treasurer.
This year has been filled with fun and frolic, and it is
with sorrow in our hearts that we leave the Junior Class of '43

Twelve years ago we were six and seven year old boys and
girls sitting out on our front porches loaded down with books
waiting for the bell to ring so we could go to school for the
first time in our lives, In the years that followed, our ardor
slowly cooled and school seemed to be a sort of torture,
instead of an exciting experience.
Then we went to junior high, This renewed our interest be-
cause the whole schedule was new. We no longer had recesses,
but we changed classes every hour and there was a different
teacher for each subject, We had lockers and study halls which
were also new experiences, But these things began to grow mo-
notonous and again school was just adreary routine to be follow-
ed day after day,
Next came high school, High school was much like junior
high, but the thought foremost in everyone's mind was Nwhen we
finish high school, we will be out of school.N This gave us
something to look forward to, but now that graduation time is
getting nearer, we donlt want to go as much as we thought we did
because we will miss the companionship of our classmates,
Every other senior class before ours has had to graduate,
so, since we are not privileged characters, we too must leave

SOPHOMORE CLASS 1945
JUNIOP5 CLASS 1945
This year there was sons doubt about whether or not we would have
an annual because of shortages of material and labor. But a meeting
of student representat'ves from each class was held and it was decid-
ed that an annuai would be published. Sylvester Fitter was elected
editor. The 6ditOV and the facuity advisor, Mr. Peterson, chose the
different comm'ttees For the annual. Billy Tucker. Wanda Jo Harris.
Tommie Balenti. Pat Humph: es, Clarence Jones, and Emily Ann Goodman,
were chosen asmembe s of the Editorial Committee. lt was their job to
produce all the wr tgen mater ai. The Art Committee was composed of
Pat McAnallen, DuMont Harr son, Neal Putman, Ted Owen, Bobbie Landrum,
and Buck Russell. The r duty was to get up all hand-drawn work such
as cartoons and advertising copy. The Photograph Committee was come
missioned to obta n all photographs necessary for the annual. Members
of this committee were Don Frye. Virginia Mock, Doris Deal, Marisue
nt, Adaline Cullen. Saily Jo Burk, and Bettie Bristol. ,The mater-
'al for the annual must all be typed before being printed so Joyce
is, T. C. Ai9X3NdGl, and Ma: on Edd e Gr der, were given this john
An annual wou dn t be worth much without a Business Manager to
handle the finances. Wesley Bradley was wlected to this position with
two committees under him. The Advertis ng Committee, whose taskit was
to sell ads to our local merchants, was composed of Max Curry, Dan
McDonald, John Rfeo, and Jeanne Starks. The annual must finally be
sold so this job was g von to the Subscriptions Committee. This group
was composed ot Jchn Ed Peters, Wayne McGee. Lorraine Gosselin, Laura
Lee Starkey, Sue Stanton, and Bill Stapler. All of these committees
had to work together as a team to accomplish the final publication of
THE BULLDOG O? 19M3.

SEN I ORS CLASS
me GLEE c:n.u
One of our more active organizations in Altus High School
is the mixed chorus consisting of sixty talented members.
The mixed chorus was seen during the Christmas holidays
walking the streets of Altus singing carols for some of our
appreciative citizens. They also appeared in a Christmas pro-
gram at the Rotary Club and high school assembly around that
One of their most outstanding performances this year was a
concert given at the Municipal Auditorium under the direction of
Mr. James Neilson of Oklahoma City.
The girls' Glee Club, directed by Miss Ruth Kent is small
in number but well known by name, for they have participated in
a number of outside activities as well as things here at home.
Their specialty seems to be'very entertaining programs for the
men of our armed services. The girls making up the organization
are: Grace Talkington, Mary Jo Vaughn, Pat Humphreys, Sue Crain,
Carol Robbins, Doris Saunders, Tuva Ann'Vaughn, Emily Ann Good-
man, Cynthia Thorpe, Sarah Sharpe, Mary Sue Mount, and Peggy
The boys' quartet is not something to be overlooked. If
the Norsemen are caught in the draft, we could easily send our
quartet to fill their place. When Don Frye sings that first
tenor, Charles Clark second tenor, Dan McDonald baritone, and
Bob Wooldridge his bass, they can send you floating right out on
wings of song. They have sung on numerous programs, and they
especially enjoy singing for their supper, also. They had some
difficulty in getting started this year because of the war, but
once they got started they really went to town. In other words
Altus High School certainly is proud of its harmonizers.
Sa-a-a-y! Can you hear what I hear? Itvs the girls trio.
Listen to Mary Jo Vaughn trilling that high soprano. That's
Peggy McCalman, the mediaemrthe meat between the sandwich, send-
ing out those second soprano notes, and I wish you would listen
to Grace Talkington singing that mellow alto. Wevre not sur-
prised to learn that they have sung for many many teas, and
luncheonsg anyone would like to sit and listen to them all day.
They enjoy singing too, especially when there is good food in
store. They didnvt get to enter contests this year because of
the war situation, but we feel confident they could win first.
In short, we think they are super.
Just because Friday is the last day of the school week is
not the only reason everyone looked forward to that day. The
assemblies presented by the student body accounted for most of
this interest. The assemblies consisted of the talent of the
students and were sponsored by the teachers of the different
classes. One that was outstanding in the minds of everyone was
the play, 'The Pshaw of Shush', or 'The Bottleneck Diamond,'
which was presented by the seventh hour speech class. Mrs. Reid,
the Home Economics teacher, put on an assembly which was entirebf
new. It was broadcasted over the loud speaking system. Th e
High School Dance Orchestra presented several programs, and we
also had several motion picture shows. We think thatthe dra-
matics class is quite talented because of two assemblies they
presented. They presented an original.1lay, 'Get the Scrap,'
and then another called 'Voice Choir'. The vocal music depart-
ment has at all times given outstanding programs. Numerous
other assemblies were presented which were equally as interest-
ing, and we think they are to be praised.
OFFICE ASSI STANTS
These are the girls who answer the telephones, take attend-
ance records, and in general, run errands for the people in the
Always ready to fill in whenever they are needed, they are
an important factor in the smooth running of our system.
PEP CLU B
S ENIOR SERVICE SCOUTS
When the Girl Scouts were started during the latter part of
the first semester, great enthusiasm was shown by the high-
school girls and since them four troops have been organized.
Each troop has a president, vice-president, secretary, treasur-
er, and a sponsor, These officers conduct meetings during which
such things as lectures, First Aid courses, and other education-
al and entertaining activities are held.
The purpose of the Senior Service Scouts is to be, at all
times prepared to be of assistance to the community. So, in
thinkingfyfthe Girl Scouts, remember that they are always ready,
willing and able.
RAH-HAH-RAH--It's the Pep Club. The cheering section of
Altus Hi. They are the ones who made those yells ring and echo
in Hightower Stadium during the beloved football season of the
Fighting Altus Bulldogs.
Of course someone had to lead the club so leaders Pat Mc?
Anallen and O. J. Austin were elected for the first year and Sue
Crain was re-elected for a second year. Fearing that a leg
might be broken, Bobbie Comstock and Bettie Bristol were chosen
as alternates and then there had to be those to take care of the
business so Bettie Bristol was elected to head this as President,
Bobbie Comstock, Vice-President, Adaline Cullen, Secy-Treasr,and
Marisue Mount, our reporter.
Now, we always had fun, but there is some'very special fun
that we will always remember and that was those pep rallies on
the nights before the games--yells, songs, parades, and many
hopes for the game to be another victory and it usually was.
At the game between the halves the Pep Club really strutted
their stuff. Out would march thirty-five girls and boys in
blue and white to do formations and give yells for our opponent,
but always saving the best till last. The Pep Club would put
the Bulldogs in the spotlight when they let out with our song,
'Altus Bulldogs', and what could be better than a rousing song
as that to let the boys know, 'we're backing ya.'

The new coach, Hilpirt, came to town and settled down to
the task1afbuilding an inexperienced group of boys to the power-
ful team that Altus produces each year.
The first game caught us a little too soon and Vernon
trampled us into the Texas sod leavingaahumiliating 32-7 defeat.
A weary discouraged squad trotted off the field that night. When
the next Monday came and one by one the boys trotted out of the
dressing room, a new atmosphere could be felt. A grim determina-
tion, a'reckless enthusiasm and an undying spirit ran the pract-
ice field as Coach Hilpirt corrected fault after fault. The
second game of the year was with Capitol H1ll,the big chesty
boys from the city. Ah--the poor Redskins, the onslaught was
terrific, they fell at our feet 24 to 8. The next few games
told a story of a successful squad with the Bulldogs pacing
each game by such scores as 25-7, 33-14, and 32-6.
The big game of the year approached. Hollis was boasting
a team which was undefeated and had been scored on only once.
A tough battle was fought which is said to be one of the best
games of the year. Pushing forward and backing up but fighting
all the way we bowed to them 14-0,
The season was fairly successful with the critics placing
us 8th from the top teams in-the State.
The Bulldogs finished their season with a feat which no one
expected and few believed. Mighty Lawton, beaten but once,
pranced on the gridiron in their usual pomp and glory. After an
hour or so of fancy football, Altus pranced off the field with
heaving chests and dizzy heads. The score was 19-6 with the
Blue and White enjoying a sweet revenge from last yearisbeating.
