Foreword 1955 ALTUS HIGH SCHOOL 1956 ALTUS, OKLAHOMA THAT BULLDOG FLAG" stands tall and straight and will always remain so, as long as there are those who have love and respect for It, and as long as that "BULLDOG SPIRIT" lives on. THE BULLDOGDedication In recognition of her untiring service to our school, her never ending smile for everyone, her sincerity to all students, and her impressive record as Secretary of the Altus Public Schools, we, the BULLDOG Staff of 1955-56, proudly dedicate this annual to Mrs. Walter Cross.Our superintendent. Mr. Clifford Peterson, is a man who always has a sympathetic heart for the underdog. He is a person to whom all students can consult when troubled. Someday we hope he is repaid for all the kindness and consideration that he has shown us. Mr. Cletus Street, our principal, has been an inspiration for every student that has had the privilege to attend Altus High School. He has never missed an opportunity to help a student when in need. We would like to take this opportunity to say 'Thank you” for your many years of guidance and for your friendship to all.PETERSON Speech STARR American History Coach GARVIN Biology Faculty YOUNG Democracy, Drivers Training Coach FLIPPIN English IV Play Director Pep Club Sponsor English II CLEMONS Shorthand Typing II BROGAN English III HICKS Typing I Bookkeeping "Collar” Sponsor Mimeograph Dept.

But we find so many easier ways; For it's the hardest way to take, And His grade's the hardest one to make. When you go out into the ways of strife And scrape to make your place in life. When the world seems against you, And something marrs everything you do, Remember that even the flowers, Which were created through His great powers Must weather the storms to bloom, And all things must end. too soon. So may I say, "God be with you In every thing you do, Until we see His mighty face The day we meet in a higher place." Through all this cruel life brings. Remember, above all other things-- Above the sweat, and strain, and strife That His Way is the Highway to the Greatest Way of Life.

Willoughby is very studious and doesn't mind if the other fellows wear his clothes and use him as a housekeeper. When the boys hear that Coach Lloyd wants Willoughby on the football team and that the college girls are mak- ing a petition for Willoughby to play football, they do all they can to discourage him. Inner Willy, Willoughby’s conscience, appears to encourage him to join the team. Sal- ly Bishop, reporter for the school paper, comes to interview him. But Willoughby thinks football Is too dangerous, and when his three aunts arrive with Marybelle, a homely, home-town girl, they forbid him to play. Finally Sally and Inner Willy persuade Will- oughby to join the team, and Hank Johnson, a football player, takes Willoughby to check out his football uniform.Junior-Senior Banquet The perfect vacation? Why Hawaii, of course. This enchanting scene was portrayed at the Junior-Senior Banquet held in the High School gymnasium on May 14, 1955, by the Junior students who entertained the Seniors and faculty members. The Junior trio composed of Margaret Becker. Kay King, and Mary Sue Martin added to the Hawaiian theme by singing "Lovely Hula Hands."Pictured here Is the entire cast of the program for the Junior-Senior Banquet of 1955. They lead the entire group in singing "Altus Bulldogs." Here we see a struggle between Jerry Bryan (left) and Henry Chennault (right) for the attention of one of the Hawaiian love- lies, Kay Kimble. Sweet Lelani's mother, Judy Williams, watches on.

Senior Adieu The time is set in fifty-six, And soon we Seniors will leave with laughs and kicks; But as each one becomes a grad We must admit that we all feel sad. Our time is gay, our time is nigh, Our time is up in old Altus High. Hooray! The Juniors seem to shout. Will they be glad when we are out! Our time is up; we sadly go, But still we want you all to know We hold no grudge, we love you still, And thus to you we make our will. We leave our books, our shining faces, Assembly yells, and Bulldog graces. But as we leave these things to you, We also leave our sad adieu. Elsie (Gus) Vaughan —70—
