Volume XXXI Published by the Bulldog Staff aw— SENIOR OFFICERS, Gary Winsett, Anne Riddle, and Gary Hornsey, cross Bulldog Lane as they return from the first class meeting where they planned some of the many activities for the senior year. Senior officers set standards for like along Bulldog Lane. THE 1964 BULLDOG of Altus Senior High School, Altus, OklahomaYOU WILL FIND IN THIS BOOK: Administration pages 18-29 Classes Student Life pages 72-105 pages 30-71 Physical Fitness pages 106-119 Personalities pages 120-137MUSIC EDUCATION building, on Bulldog Lane, was completed in February. NEW BUILDING Vocal, Instrumental Music Labs Provided Pink brick exterior masonry walls with a south- west wall of deep blue tile, and blending glass panels of blue alternating with the crystal en- trance glass panels give the Music Education building a gay appearance in keeping with its purpose . . . restful recreation and musical ac- complishment for the students who use it. The peaked, poured concrete roof provides sheltered clerestory windows for the rehearsal halls within. Vocal music is in the west wing of the building, and band rooms are in the east half. Completely air-conditioned, the building may be used with ease throughout the year. Running through the center of the structure is an entrance lobby providing waiting space for students. Trophy cases built into the south walls already are well filled. Large rehearsal halls provide ample space for large vocal and instru- mental groups. Small practice rooms, flanking the big room, add additional rehearsal space. There are correctly designed robe and uniform closets, music libraries and rehearsal rooms. CONTEMPORARY and academic Gothic architec- ture blend pleasantly on campus of AHS. Students wait at entrance of main administration building.VOCATIONAL BUILDING was built in 1957 to be used for agri- culture and industrial arts classes. Both departments are equipped with modern shop laboratories, use'ful also for pre-industrial and pre-engineering training. LIVESTOCK JUDGING team members observe their second place banner, won at the Wichita Falls. Texas, Junior Beef Show, one of the outstanding livestock shows of the country. Members are Mackey Carder. John Bates, Charlie Howard and Fred Schmidt. Hold- ing the award is the sponsor, Mr. Kent Metcalf. At this contest John Bates won first place individual honors in judging. Members of the team placed high in several con- tests during the year. DON McASKILL and Cecil McKinney built this pick-up rack for swine. All Aggie boys participate in projects such as these, building useful equip- ment and learning carpentry and metal work. Vocational agriculture at Altus High provides one of the state’s most outstanding departments for training in the many fields of modern agriculture. Located, as Altus is, in the center of both irri- gated and dry-land farms, boys have numerous opportunities to put “book” knowledge to practical use at once. Prize money earned in contests, and income from livestock and crop projects, often provides students with college money, or resources for entering farming following high school gradu- ation. Animal pens are provided at the “Aggie farm” for the use of boys living in town in order that they may participate actively in projects. CHARLIE HOW- ARD holds the heads of maize which won for him the second place award for dry land feed at the county fair. Charlie i s a member o f various judging teams of the Ag school. 2AUDITORIUM BUILDING for the use of high school students was completed in 1962. Its capacity is approximately 1500. Modern stage lighting, splendid sound facilities, year-round air-conditioning make this building with its padded seats, carpeted runways, and floating scenery, one of the region’s out- standing. Air-conditioning ducts were installed at the time the building was constructed, and re- frigerated air-conditioning install- ed during the summer of 1963. Special features include a sound system, piped into the lobby, pro- viding perfect sound transmission from the stage when standing room only audiences require that over- flow crowds remain outside the auditorium proper. AUDITORIUM Schools, Community, Region Use Building Altus High auditorium also is used by other schools and community groups. However high school events are given priority, and a careful calen- dar is kept of events schedul- ed. Numerous important meet- ings are attracted to Altus as a result of this building, us- able the year-round with every area comfortably cooled or heated. Seniors from a half-dozen counties assemble here for ACT test briefing, and even more return in May for Altus Junior College Sen- ior Day. Nationally known, the Junior High Boys’ Vocal Music Festival is held here. SUSAN BATES, as Cornelia Otis Skinner, and Myra Pitts as Emily Kimbrough, prove their abilities without costumes or staging as they read their lines during an early rehearsal of “Our Hearts Were Young and Gay.” DRAMATICALLY EMPHASIZING the splendid scope of the AHS auditorium stage, and the arrangement of the theatre type padded seats, this photograph was “shot” with available lighting from a raised vantage point near the rear. 3Typing I and II classes meet daily. Basic prin- ciples of typing, as well as the correct forms to use in writing letters, are taught. Approximate- ly 40 percent of the student body takes typing each year. English IV is a senior course that includes many facets of study. English literature, especially Shakespeare’s plays, is studied extensively. Theme writing and English 3200 are used for college preparation. JACK BECKER carefully counts spaces on a term paper cover assignment. Precision typing like this is a part of second term work. Shorthand provides valuable note-taking ability for those going to college. It gives students an opportunity for; summer jobs, for well-paid part time jobs while attending college, and may lead to full time employment following high school graduation if sufficiently proficient. Available light picture, bottom left, shows students in Miss Glade Clemons seventh hour shorthand class taking dictation at approxi- mately 125 words per minute. COLLEEN MOORE, Ann Gragg and Wallace Castle write a literary interpretation of Robert Burns’ poems from today’s standpoint. World history widens the student’s outlook about other nations. It increases his esteem of the culture of others, at the same time building appreciation for the values of his own country. World history is the basis for many other sub- jects both in high school and college, and often is taken during the final year by seniors who realize this in time. SHARON JONES and Sam Aboussie check textbook material as Mr. Anton Edmonson, not shown, empha- sizes data to be studied carefully. 4ACADEMICS Class Rooms Mirror Many Facets Of A.H.S TRAFFIC situations are enacted in miniature with magnetic models by Ann Winsett and Ann DiCindio in Mr. Arthur Young’s Driver Safety class. REVIEWING for a test in Latin, James Duke, Larry Yee, Steve Doughty, Mike Zeaman and Jeff Miller take advantage of flexible desk arrangements in modern classroom of the new language wing. THAT ISN'T A NOTE Steve Green is receiving, it's a paper on geometry being passed to the front in Mr. Cortis Martin’s class. The mathematics laboratory desk- tables and explanatory devices at the front of the room are a part of Altus' new equipment for teaching modem mathematics on space age levels. LOGARITHMS OF real numbers is discussed by Mr. Bill Tipton with Karen Pollock in algebra class. College bound students have an opportunity to take Algebra I and II, Plane and Solid Geometry, trigonometry, analy- tics, computer programming, calculus and business math while in school here. WHO SAYS boys don’t like poetry. Mrs. Frank Smart, lower right, commands rapt attention as she reads excerpts from favorite pieces of literature to her students. English III teachers also emphasize reading lists for students recommended by college admissions officers, helping students prepare for placement.TWELVE BUSSES bring Altus High stu- dents from rural areas, and from the Capehart housing section of Altus Air Force Base. They also are used for field trips in nearby places as evidenced by Nicky Bagley, Glenda Everett, Sheryl Black- stone, Diane Cline and Thalia Anderson. Wes Booker and Bill Ran- dall, student bus dri- vers, give a radiator a final check before be- ginning their route. Transportation has changed greatly during the 70 years since Altus schools were founded. Grandfather did walk three to ten miles, or he rode horseback. On rare occasions a buggy made the trip a little more comfortable. After World War I “truck busses” were an innovation, with open trucks covered with a canvas canopy, and benches along the sides for seats. There was no heat, but it was better than walking through the long cold morn- ings and evenings. Today a well-heated bus comes by the home for the school student, and even from the most distant points of the 100-square mile district the drive is only a few minutes duration. Altus graduates find that an easy way to work their way through college is by driving a school bus and attending Altus Junior college during the first two years. Other students arrive in private cars, with many sharing rides on a car pool basis. Some come on motor scooters, and bicycles, and some walk. However they arrive, one thing is certain, during the day they will get their share of exercise as they go from class to class on the 35-acre campus. WINDSWEPT N. Park at Bulldog Lane offers little protection during a “northener” but the sunny new east en- trance is a welcome noon spot. Hurrying students from parking lot clearly defines dropping temperature. Overcast sky reflects deserted lot minutes after school day.Altus High School has long been noted as a leader in physical education. It is mandatory for those who are not engaged in other activi- ties, such as band or athletics, to take one year of Physical Education. This applies to both boys and girls. The girls course is somewhat differ- ent from the boys. It includes swimming, bowl- ing, tumbling, Red Cross training, dancing. Boys also have Red Cross first aid courses, some tumbling, but work more on calisthentics, touch football, basketball and indoor track. Red Cross training is taught by a certified instructor. Locker rooms in the Physical Education build- ing are large, and there are plenty of showers. When all practice baskets are in use, six basket- ball teams can practice on the gymnasium floor. When volleyball is in season, four nine- man teams can play simultaneously. FITNESS TRAINING Physical Ed Structure Has Multiple Uses MANY PEP assemblies are held in the large gymnasium. Three thousand spectators can be seated when a capacity crowd is in the gym bleachers. Assem- bly shown was one of the first of the year when the Bulldog football varsity team was intro- duced to the students. Cheer- leaders Toy Easley and Patty Mollison help create enthusiasm with school songs, and new yells introduced for the season. Soph- omore Cheerleader Judy Will- iams is out of camera range. Pep Band provides sound effects for all assemblies such as this and leads students back to classes on game days. PHYSICAL EDU- CATION building was completed in 1956 after the framework had been carried away by a windstorm. With its long dressing rooms, and plentiful lockers, the gymnasium is a favorite with South- western Oklahoma teams for both school and city recreation groups. During the basketball season the gymnasium is schedul- ed at al m o s t every hour for practice ses- sions or for play. 7Altus High School campus continues to expand but the Administration building remains the hub of all activities. Its tranquil front, unchanged through three decades, 'does not reveal the space age transformations within, nor the new math and language wings at the rear. In addition special purpose buildings flank it on three sides of the 35-acre campus. Life On Bulldog LaneTHOSE WHO covered the football games include: Bob Horning, Terry Phelps, Nicky Bagley, John Peyton, Roy Sewell, Teddy Woods, Ricky Jackson, Judy Rooker, and Jane Flowers. Bob Homing and Teddy Woods covered the out of town junior high football games. Terry Phelps, Johnny Peyton, Roy Sewell, Ricky Jackson, Judy Rooker, Jane Flowers, and Nickey Bagley covered the grade school games all for the Times- Democrat. Nicky and Terry also covered the home high school games for the Wichita Falls papers. Students are standing in front of the new press box that was added to Hightower Memorial Stadium. STUDENT INTERESTS Reading, Writing Opportunities Attract Many MR. NICK MOODY and Mr. Don Leavitt, band direc- tors, view “That Altus Band” from the new press box. From the higher vantage point they are able to see and correct band members mistakes more easily. MIKE STOCK is contemplating the weekly quotation in the study hall. The quotation is selected by Miss Bessie Brogan, the librarian. Her assistants change the axiom once a week.MODERN FACILITIES for language instruction at Altus High make rapid advancement possible in French, Spanish and Latin. Two years of each lan- guage are offered. In 1962 a completely new language wing was added, containing five classrooms and a language lab- oratory of 48 individual booths, each with earphones, micro- phone, tape recorder and two way communication. French club officers Nanette Bilyeu, president; John Bowen, vice president and Mary Hill, secre- tary, listen to a new tape. They take an active part in all activi- ties of the club. All language teachers at Altus have had at least one National Science Foundation course in linguistics, and are able to utilize the labo- ratory facilities to the fullest LABORATORIES Facilities Provide Practical Opportunities Home Economics spacious, and beautiful labora- tories occupy space that once was an .auditorium wing. Clothing construction, food preparation and interior decoration are offered to help prepare girls for personal and home-making skijls. Built- in electric stoves, washer and dryer, refrigerators, freezers", electric sewing machines and other facilities of a modern home are contained in the kitchen, living - dining room and laboratories. SECOND YEAR home economics students like Glenda Felty learn advanced tailoring under the direction of Mrs. D. A. Shirley, home economics instructor. Many college laboratories do not compare with the modern biology labs found at Altus High. Twelve sections of biology are taught daily. Two biology clubs have been formed, and are now in their second vear of operation. Clubs have had many varied programs which increases the concern of the members for this science. GILDA HERNANDEZ and Carolyn Henry observe specimens under the microscope while Mr. Don Jones makes an adjustment on the instrument. 11ENROLLMENT DAY is always awaited with great expectation at Altus High. New arrivals in Altus are seen for the first time by many students. This day provides a cli- max for the summer during which many school friends were separated. Enrollment day is the start of another period of learn- ing, as well as a time of entertainment bv being with friends. Trees in the photograph were planted as a part of the Hightower Park addition. Park benches, which are to the far left, were a senior class memorial. Altus Junior College, with its booming enrollment, is to the south. SCHOOL DAYS Enrollment To Graduation Brief Interlude Atmosphere of the high school is relaxed and casual. There are no uniforms that have to be worn as in more formal schools. However, there are certain requirements about neatness of appearance. Most students are casu- ally dressed, except for those having to wear dress clothes for special purposes. On pep assembly day pep club girls wear their regular uniforms which consist of a white sweater with a blue AHS megaphone and a navy blue pleated skirt. AUTOMATIC DISPENSERS are always a refreshing welcome to students between classes. Not only are there dispensers located in the school building, but a snack bar is opened during the noon hour in the phy- sical education building lobby. Leroy Kraatz makes a quick stop at the candy machine on his way to class for an afternoon pick-up. FINAL DAY of school is anti- cipated with as much or more eagerness than the first day. Change from studies t o care free time is welcomed. For some the summer is a time to earn money, to apply to college, and for others it is a time to con- tinue their education by attend- ing science institutes or summer schools. And still for others, summer is a time for pleasure and relaxation. But, whatever summer may be, the change is welcomed. Teachers also enjoy their vacations whether they go to school or catch up on their favorite hobby. Many continue teaching or work with the schools. 12JUSTICE FLOYD JACKSON of the Oklahoma Supreme Court briefed Altus High journalism students on historical background of the court, and the judicial branch of the government. He was one of many personages interviewed during the day by the students on their annual field trip to the capitol. Others include Gov. Henry Bellmon, pub- lishing and television personalities, astronomer Marion Jameson, and financier Charles Thompson. Shown with Justice Jackson are Barbara Shook, Thalia Anderson, Billy Randall, Shirley Rice, Brenda Milligan and Lawrence Wilks. CHILDREN’S GAMES assume adult status when they are played at Spanish Club meeting with all directions and responses in Spanish. Betty Snow, mid-way between the Spoon twins, Karen and Sharon, finds game directions hilarious. Mrs. Bob Rooker and Mrs. C. M. Ewing, sponsors, meet with the Spanish Club members regularly throughout the year. Evening meetings provide much more than recreation and fellowship. Students learn to use their new “second language” in informal situations, and to add to conversational vocabularies. Learning opportunities are not restricted to formal class- room situations. Field trips, academic clubs, individual re- search projects and guest lecturers add much to the knowledge and enjoyment of educational endeavors. NICKY BAGLEY, senior trig student measures the largest elm in Altus as Judy Triplett, sophomore biology student looks on. The tree, although not a record breaker, has the largest width of any recorded in the state. Nicky shot the angle with a meter stick and pro- tractor and from this figured the height. The circumfer- ence was found by simply measuring the distance around the trunk. The di- ameter was found by divid- ing the circumference by pi. Various ways were used in order to check the accuracy of the height. Judy deter- mined the species after the computations were made. 13ACTIVITIES are a part of the life of almost every student at Altus High. For instance, glee clubs mem- berships number approximately one out of every five members of the high school student body. There are three glee clubs: sophomore girls, boys’ and varsity girls. They perform at district and state vocal meets, usually obtain- ing superior ratings. Civic clubs, other schools, assemblies and community events request performances. Most of these are made by smaller groups, a part of the school “entertainment bureau.’’ Mrs. A. W. Edwards, far right, directs all vocal music activi- ties at the senior high level. PUBLIC SERVICE Organizations Lead School-Community Unity PEP CLUB is another activity well represented. With approxi- mately every other girl in the high school a member of the pep club, it has strong influence on the loyal support of the school. They are in attendance at all sports activities, and are usually strongest in vocal force at football games. Pep club has officers who are in charge of planning all out-of-town trips which the club takes as a group. An advisor from the faculty is present at all pep club meetings. A special section of bleachers is reserved for Pep Club members at all ball games. During early fall the girls wear white blouses and Bulldog blue skirts. Later white pullover sweaters are a fd- ed. On coldest nights the girls wear dark topcoats. “THAT ALTUS BAND” probably is the best known of any of the activity groups at Altus High School in areas outside the city. They perform at every Bulldog football game, whether it is at home or away. This year they participate in Band Day at the Univer- sity of Okahoma, marched in district, state and regional contests, and scored superiors. Band practice during football season starts before eight, with practice usually lasting until 10:00, much of the time being spent on the practice field. During half-time performances, all music is played by memory, and intricate steps are performed during difficult maneu- vers with instruments played simultaneously. Special groups of the band have performed on television. The “Downbeats” were on the Tom Paxton show. Picture at the left, with Director Don Leavitt, shows how careful prac- tice “makes perfect.” Formations usually are rehearsed for two or three weeks, with several shows in various stages of production at one time. When bad weather makes practice im- possible concert work is rehearsed indoors. 14WITH ONE of the nation’s great Strategic Air Command and Strategic Aerospace Com- mand installations a part of the school district, Altus High School and Altus Junior Coll- ege administrators and stu- dents work closely with the military and their dependents. This policy makes for mutual understanding and helps pro- mote better education for all, school officials believe. Typi- cal of many School-Air Force events is the scene at right, made during Education Day when educators from Altus High-School — Altus Junioi College, as well as from other colleges of the state were guests for a tour of the Atlas Missile sites. Approximately 40 percent of the high school enrollment is made up of mili- tary dependents. Miss Glade Clemons, business education teacher; Mrs. Clifford Peterson, college speech and English teacher, and Mr. Clifford Peterson, superinten- dent of schools, leave an Air Force bus on tour of missile sites. Official Air Force Photo. BASE-SCHOOL COOPERATION Altus High-AJC Focal Point For Progress Approximately 70 percent of Altus High School graduates enter Altus Junior College. AJC has doubled its enrollment almost every year. Oldest municipal junior college in Okla- homa, AJC is in the perfect position to benefit from new legislation for the accredited com- munity college. Last summer the college purchased the air-conditioned church struc- ture, fronting on Park Lane, and will convert it into a modem classroom building. Addi- tional building expansion is planned to take care of the record enrollments expected to continue with each year. Matriculation in the junior college is surprisingly easy because of the close cooperation between Dean Ora Littlejohn, and Acting Principal J. D. Nor- man. All students who enter Altus Junior College must take the ACT test. Basic courses are offered in modern mathematics, science, English and history, as well as foreign language. Required work for science, mathematics, dental, medical, law, pharmacy, teaching and other degrees is offered. DEAN ORA LITTLEJOHN, right, and Mr. Dennis Norman discuss the records of AHS students plan- ning to enroll in Altus Junior College this summer or fall. Students who attend either day or evening school in the summer and the full fall and spring terms followed by another summer term can enter senior colleges with near junior standing. 15Unexpected dividend from the construction of the second story addition to the new northeast wing was creation of an enclosed patio area, and exterior walkways between classes. With this addition also, the rear of the high school building was greatly enhanced architecturally. The south wing which now houses cafeteria and kitchens below, and English classrooms above, was a part of the original L-shaped building. Better balance, and better use of the land area has been achieved with the U-shape. Although some classes meet as early as 7:30 A.M. (for those who want computer programming as an enrichment course) another group of classes meet on Monday and Thursday evenings, and have met for the past 21 years. Typewriting, shorthand and accounting are taught not only in day classes, but also in evening school. SOPHOMORES Mary Montoya and Ann Winsett stroll along the new walaway between wings of the high school, discussing eventful days during this first year in senior high, and landscaping possibilities of the semi-enclosed rear area. BELOW: Lights burn more brightly than usual in AHS administrative building in readiness for the record attendance at the February 13 all- school open-house. Few nights of the year find the building dark. Classrooms are used for night courses, and for numerous community meetings. ERA'S END Buildings Used For Day, Evening ClassesDEDICATION In Memoriam MR. CLETUS STREET 1907-1963 Principal Altus Senior High School 1948-1963 Every student and every teacher felt a great personal loss when Mr. Street suddenly died last November. Mr. Street dedicated much of his time to AHS. He was an enthusiastic sup- porter of the Collar and the Bulldog. He founded the apprentice system for Bulldog staff members, beginning as sophomores. He knew the worth of student publications. Ir sorrow and gratitude the 1964 Bulldog is dedicated to Mr. Cletus Street, principal. Mr. Cletus Street, in a well-remembered pose, preparing to make an intercom announcement from his desk. Many years ago Mr. Cletus Street first recited the following poem as his farewell to the graduating seniors. Mr. Street will not be here to give this poem, which might so easily be his own autobiog- raphy. The Bulldog staff dedicates it to the Class of 1964, in memory of Altus High School’s principal. An old man traveling a lone highway, Came at the evening cold and gray. To a chasm deep and wide. The old man crossed in the twilight dim. For the sullen stream held no fears for him. But he turned when he reached the other side. And builded a bridge to span the tide. "Old man." cried a fellow pilgrim near. "Yon are wasting your strength with building here; Your journey will end with the ending day. And you never again will pass this way. "You have crossed the chasm deep and wide. Why build you a bridge at eventide?" And the builder raised his old gray head "Good friend, on the path I hale come." he said. "There followetb after me today A youth whose feet will pass this way. “This stream, which has been as naught to me. To that fair-haired boy may a pitfall be: He. too. must cross in the twilight dim — Good friend. I am building this bridge for him. ... W. A. Dromgoole Mr. Cletus Street, standing right, reads a special announcement to new faculty members following a pre-enrollment coffee last September in the cafe- teria. From left they are Mrs. Chas. Wells, Mr. Bill Cunningham, Mr. Kent Metcalf, Mrs. Ora Dale Rodgers, Mr. Dennis Norman (attendance director), Mr. Sampsey Harjo, Mr. Paul Roach, Mr. Donald Connell. (Lower Picture): Moments after this pic- ture was made on the stage during commencement, Mr. Cletus Street, third from left, recited the poem reproduced here. 17ADMINISTRA TION — Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country. President John F. Kennedy Inaugural AddressFEW ADMINISTRATORS of major school systems have the knowledge of how each division operates that is second nature with Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent of schools. Mr. Peterson retains an intense interest in the education of each student under his supervision. A former principal of Altus Senior High School, he frequently stops to visit with a student in a corridor, or stops by a classroom to hear an interesting discussion. Well informed on major educational developments, Mr. Peterson fre- quently speaks before state and regional groups, and takes an active part in the National Association of School Administrators. He has help numerous offices in important educational organizations. Constantly looking toward the future, Mr. Peterson chartered the probable growth of Altus Senior High School so accurately five years ago that he missed the actual enrollment by only a few students each year. His current forecast is 1500 students by 1970, and building needs are being formulated to meet that figure before it materializes. This foresight has enabled Altus students to obtain facilities as they were needed. The same foresight has made possible full utilization of such important cooper- ative projects as purchases through Title III of the National Defense Education Act, through which mathematics, science and modem language equip- ment is made available. MR. CLIFFORD PETERSON, superintendent of Altus Schools, i s widely known as an administrator. ADMINISTRATION Superintendent Plans For New Enrollment MR. BAILEY SNOW, administra- tive assistant, is in charge of transportation, census and textbook materials for the schools. BOARD OF EDUCATION members meet in the conference room of the board building at 221 North Lee with Dr. C. G. Russell, president, presiding. Members from left are Mr. Walter Marshall, vice president; Mr. Jack Colville, Dr. Russell, Mr. Eugene Bryce, Mr. Hatton McMahan, and Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent. 20BOARD OF EDUCATION DEDICATED TO the principle of providing the best possible education for the youth of the com- munity, Altus Board of Education works without financial remuneration for the benefits of the schools. This has been a year requiring many additional meetings to open bids, select new administrative personnel, and work with the superintendent in planning expansion needs of the high school as well as other schools of the system. Board members are keenly interested in the progress of the high school, and of the stu- dents who attend it. They attend major functions, and frequently work with the superintendent and faculty on special projects for adding to the facili- ties of the schools.

DENNIS NORMAN assum- ed the acting principalship last fall after the sudden death of Mr. Cletus Street, who had been principal since 1948. Former aide to Mr. Street, and attend- ance director, Mr. Norman agreed to be the acting princi- pal until a permanent replace- ment could be obtained. Mr. Roy Williams, principal of Central Junior Hign, will become prin- cipal in 1964-65, and Mr. Nor- man will resume his position as attendance director, and teacher of SMSG courses in geometry. He holds a master’s degree in mathematics and science, and is a former National Science Foundation fellow i n modem mathematics. Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent, said of Mr. Norman: “He made an outstanding contribution to the school i n a difficult liason position.” PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE Leaders Confer With Students For Future Administrative hub of the entire school, the principal's office at Altus Senior High is more like that of a college than is the average high- school office. Located just off the main en- trance of the administrative building it corre- lates the many faceted instructional program for the 35-acre campus. Student welfare, both from a health and recreational standpoint, as well as the paramount one of academic achieve- ment, is of first concern. Faculty members total 38 this year, and their instructional program also is unified through the principal. ASSIGNMENT as attendance director during the second semester for Mr. Donald Connell was made to relieve Mr. Norman for other duties including open house, graduation and close of school. Mr. Cornell is an administrative aide also to Mr. Norman. GUIDANCE COUNSELOR for the high school body means Mr. Adrian Rankin usually is first to meet new students, and helps introduce them to faculty and student, body. He supervises testing, pre-enrollment and course planning. 22MRS. PAUL FLIPPIN, B.A., attended OU, SWSC, CU, directs class plays, teaches English IV, sponsors Pep Club, Juniors. MRS.

And the glow from that fire can truly light the world. And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country will do for you, ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man. —From the Inaugural address of President John F. Kennedy January 20, 1961 Saddened by the unexpected death of their principal, Mr. Cletus Street, only 18 days earlier, Altus students sat in stunned silence as word of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy filtered through the intercom. “We will keep you informed,” Mr. Dennis Norman, acting principal, announced. It was fifth hour, the period immediately after lunch. Just as in Dallas, 225 miles away, the sun had broken through the clouds with almost spring- time warmth. Inside the classrooms, however, there was nothing but chilling horror. Class after class held silent prayers, “for the president and our nation.” One boy, whose father sat 100 feet below the surface at a nearby Atlas Missile silo, spoke for many: “Dear God, help those who must make the decisions today to make the right ones.” Students on the east side of the building noted two B-52’s taking off on the runways two miles away, and correctly surmised that an alert was already effective. To each student and teacher the president’s death had personal meaning. Many had met him when he came to Wichita Falls during the campaign, and the championship Altus band had been chosen to glay for him. The picture, at left, first published in the 1961 ulldog, will never be forgotten. Students Mourn Martur; Support Successor THIS UNUSUAL charcoal drawing of President Lyn- don Johnson is a special gift to the 1964 Bulldog. Presi- dent Johnson, the first chief executive to know the Altus area personally, has had an active part in allocating federal monies to schools such as Altus where more than 40 percent of the fathers give their lives to the service of their country in Strategic Air Command and Strategic Aerospace Command. MR. ROBERT KILLEBREW. industrial arts teacher, views a framed color photograph of President Johnson. Mrs. Johnson and their teen-aged daughters. Copies of these pictures were given each school by the Altus Times-Democrat, and were framed by the high school shop class under Mr. Killebrew’s direction. Many other city-wide contributions are made by members of the wood-working class. During first term, under Mr. Dick Corbitt, they made flag stands for classrooms. 29 CLASSESIf “a” is success in life, I should say the formula is a equals x plus y plus z, x being WORK, y being play, and z keeping your mouth shut.

Juniors Gain Valuable Work Experiences AHS juniors of 1963-64, numbering 306, usually take more subjects during this year than either their sophomore or senior year. It is at this time that most students prefer to take the Merit Test and apply for scholarships at the college or university of their choice. Juniors at AHS gain valuable experience, which will be helpful in future years, by working together on the Jr.-Sr. Banquet and the Junior Play, high- lights of the year. Most consider their junior year one of challenge, and of opportunities. JUNIOR CLASS officers, Steve Doughty, president; Jack Diltz, vice-president; Jayme Alter, treasurer; and Susan Bates, secretary, have a high view sitting upon a painter’s scaffold while Altus High School s new building addition is still in the near completion stage. Most of these students have had previous experience in doing the various duties required of them as officers. 61FIRST ROW: Nancy Reutlinger, Bobby Richardson, SECOND ROW': Rhana Robison, Daphne Rowland, Fred Gayle Richardson, Robby Roberson, Anita Roberts, Sohmedt, Richard Schmidt, Jim Sewell, Randel Shadid, Johnny Roberts, Kathy Roberts, Tanna Robertson.

For instance, the Junior-Senior Banquet program is a musical comedy written by students and produced under the supervision of the faculty members. It entails several weeks of scenery construction and rehearsals. For the final night, formally dressed seniors arrive for the gala production and are lavishly served a full three-course meal.

Class parents are elected with class officers, at the first meeting in the fall. Although entailing work, it also is con- sidered to be an honor, worth the effort.

After a theorem is proved they simply erase what they have done and are ready to begin a new problem. Much time is saved, and problems are easier to perceive in this way.

Every sophomore at Altus High is re- Marion Zumbro quire-d to read the book. Interest is evidenced by this group of Mrs. Ora Dale Rodgers' students. READING DICKENS "Tale of Two Cities” has its light moments for Carla Lamb, Janey Walker, Mary Osborne and Jane Walker, sophomores. Part of the democratic operation of the sopho- more class involves the election of class officers each year. Officials then schedule class meet- ings, carrying out the wishes of members in arranging sophomore projects. These include parties, plans for the sophomore-senior tea, and class projects for the school. It’s all a part of becoming a full-fleged “Bulldog” at Altus High. HEADING class activities were Bobby Darwin, presi- dent; Larry Calkins, vice-president; and Paul Finke, secretary-treasurer. Their terms end June 1, with the close of school. Paul moved at end of the first semester.STUDENT LIFETwo roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by.

Rehears- als were held from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. daily until the beginning of classwork. Fall practice schedules began at 8:00 a.m. Original forma- tions, designed by Mr. Don Leavitt and his assistants, Mr. James Rogers and Mr. Nick Moody were mastered by Charlene Longley, drum major. Band members memorized both steps and music scores. Some shows proved so popular with spectators that they were repeated by request. Fans at Stillwater gave the band an encore, and letters of appreciation were sent from the OSU music faculty to the Board of Education. Twirlers for 1963-64 Janie Walker, Phyllis Chenault, Jerri Lynn Snow and Donna Aboussie, teamed with drum major Charlene Longley, (rive That Altus Band just one more thing of which to be proud.

Rehearsals began thirty minutes before school and continued through first period. Two shows usually were rehearsed simultaneously. THAT ALTUS BAND DIRECTOR Don K. Lea- vitt’s principal instrument is the clarinet. New Shows Staged For Game Half-Times Band parents helped finance the chartered buses for out-of-town football trips, as well as band appearances in festivals and the district and state marching contests. Two buses were required for the 80-member marching unit. Outstanding trips of the year included the Weatherford district concert contests, state marching contest at the University of Okla- homa, and the Tri-State Band Festival at Enid. Approximately a half-million persons saw the band in parades, in concerts and in special shows during the year. Uniforms in two shades of blue with white and silver trim were purchased to represent the highschool colors, and at the same time add show glamor to the unit’s gene- ral appearance. White shoes are required uni- form attire, and white hat plumes also are worn when the weather is suitable for marching. DRUM MAJOR Char- lene Longley began as a junior high major- ette, winning her place by try-out each year. GETTING READY to leave for the Stillwater game are Jane Goodwin, Madelene Harbison, Margie Hardy, Phyllis Chenault, Jerri Lynn Snow, Dwayne Lower, Mike Zeaman. Wallace Castle. Marv Montovo and Director Don Leavitt. On longer bus trips causal clothes were worn enroute. 76Going into its third year, the Down Beats provided musical background for many AHS ac- tivities. In addition to staging their own assemblies, and pro- viding accompaniment for oth- ers, the Down Beats assist with concert music for the school’s major productions. January 14 they went to Oklahoma City to participate in the invitational clinic for the ten best stage bands in the state. While there they appeared as guest per- formers on the Tom Paxton television show, Station WKY.

Mr. Rogers and Mr. Moody both plav the trumpet and work with Mr. Leavitt in planning activities for the band, organizations, ensembles. Instrumental music in- struction begins at the sixth grade level in Altus schools. As a result only highly qualified musicians are admitted as members of senior high groups. Di- rectors Leavitt and assis- tants, Moody and Rogers, planned special events throughout the season. These included trips to Stillwater, to University of Oklahoma at Norman, to Six Flags over Texas at Fort Worth, and to the dis- trict concert contests at Weatherford.

They have continuously brought home high ratings and honors from contests all over the state. Vocal groups from AHS maintain repertoires of program material. When civic clubs, mili- tary organizations, or women’s clubs need a program they call the school. Within min- utes, an ensemble is available. Some groups attend the same university or college and become collegiate headliners. These groups also perform in assemblies with both serious and humorous skits, of many varied types. SOPHOMORE Gf.EE CLUB officers, Patricia Eley, vice-president; Ruth Ann McCarty, secretary-trea- surer; and Jane Walker check over new music se- lections for the use of the Sophomore Glee Club.

They sang at many as semblies that were given by the department. PAUL WILSON, Barry Carrol, Eddie Garvin, and George Lees made up the boys quartet num- ber two. These boys sang with the number one quartet. At times the group sang separately. OFFICERS FOR the boys glee club, Brian Cole, secretary; Vic Cleveland, President; and Paul Wilson, Vice-president, look over a piece of music that was selected for the boys. Former high school boys who took glee club often tell alumni groups of the life, both in college and afterwards, that comes as a re- sult of vocal training. Their singing abilities are put to use in civic groups and church choir singing. Many Altus High School male vocalists have literally sung their way through the state universities. Some have gained recognition in college as opera sing- ers, and some have become teachers of mu- sic. Boys who have studied with a glee club have said that it taught them to recognize good music. It widened their field of music appreciation to include opera, classical, and semi-classical music. Many, after having glee club, find that although their voices are not sufficiently trained wish to continue singing after they have left high school. 80MEMBERS OF the Varsity Girls Glee Club included: FIRST ROW: Glenda Felty, Mary Nicholson, Avis Whitworth, Sherron Forrester, Shirley Rice, Terry Kins:, Myra Pritts, LaDonna Devoll, Linda Green.

Such organizations as the Pep Club help to express the enthusiasm of students not only for athletic events but also school-wide projects. Membership in the Pep Club is open to all who are interested. It pro- vides a means of forming many friendships for newcomers who arrive almost daily at AHS. Girls are required to wear Bulldog Blue skirts. Sweaters of regulation design are secured through the school. The Pep Club emblem is a cheerleader's megaphone of the school colors which is worn on the sweater. Dues are onlv 25c per year. Membership is open to all girls. OFFICERS FOR the 1963-64 Altus High School Pep Club are Diane Boyd, president; Sharon Spoon, secretary-treasurer; Mrs. Paul Flippin, sponsor and advisor; and LaDonna DeVoll, vice-president. It is tradi- tional that all Altus High School Pep Club officers be senior students, and be chosen by fellow members. These officers are in charge of pep club dues, refreshments during home gan es, as well as checking members at ball games, and encouraging Bulldog pep and excellent sportsmai.ship.

LIBRARY SCIENCE CLUB Members Receive Valuable Training Here Library Science is a regular credit activity offered at Altus High School. Library students are taught the Dewey Decimal Index System for filing cards, correct procedure for placing books on the shelf, and how to file cards on checked out books. The AHS Library serves not only Altus High School but the junior college as well. Altus’ library houses 10,658 volumes in addition to 48 periodicals and 2 news- papers. Books ranging from Philosophy, Science, Language, Fine Arts, and fiction can be found there. Perhaps the most important function of the library is to provide a source of reference material for students. The library is well-equipped for this job, having scores of reference books, dictionaries and also recent pamphlets. v ; LIBRARY AIDE Sue Loper arranges magazines on the memorial stand. Each month AHS receives 48 periodicals of all types. Vicki Mahnke, ’60, is memoralized here. Keeping up with the thousands of books stored in the AHS library is a big job. Approximately one- hundred and fifty books are checked out of the library each day. Every book, in order to leave the library, must be listed on a library card. Miss Brogan, with the help of the aides, does this job. ENROLLED in the course as Library aides are Pam Marple, Terry Haines, Peggy Robbins, James Stout, Shucki Oveilon, Patty Smithling, Roberta Hen- dricks, Glenda Tate, Danny Paulsen, Rodney Tidwell, and Janet Wendt, senior. 85FIRST YEAR members of the Latin Club are: FIRST ROW: Marlise Bowers, Patty Pryor, Mary Smith, Donna Nichols, Beverly Forrester, Sue Shephen, Jennifer Jones.

THIRD ROW: Robert Thompson, Jimmy Anderson, Fred Schmedt, Tom Henderson, Glen Miller, Joe Mason, Ronnie Stanfill. Latin I students learn basic Latin words, declensions, conjuga- tions, and some Roman customs. LATIN CLUB LATIN II Club members are: FIRST ROW': Van Maxwell, Carolyn Kelly, Darlene Hurdstrom, Carolyn Dennis, Jean Garnett, James Duke. SECOND ROW: Mrs. Dale Culver, Brenda Hert, Cynthia Kyrzakos, Patsy Gorr, Susan Bates, Jayme Alter, JoAnne Garvin. THIRD ROW: Larry LaMar, Mike Zeaman, Robert Parsons, David Martin, Larry Yee, Jeff Miller, and Thad Gembacz. Members of Latin II study the Roman mythology and transT te Caesar’s GALLIC WARS. Knowledge Of Basic Latin Helps Students ALTHOUGH celestially costumed, Latin Club officers are not Roman gods, but merely the “workhorses” elected to plan club activities. Susan Bates, reporter, smiles at Mrs. Dale Culver’s expression as she watches the slave sale of Latin I students. Other officers are Jean Garnett, president, Jo Ann Garvin, vice-president, Larry Lamar, secretary-treasurer, and Carolyn Den- nis, song leader. Todays Latin Club activities include such modern events as Pizza dinners and automobile caroling caravans at Christmas. Biggest event is the annual Ides of March celebration including a Roman banquet. Latin students are greatly aided in the study of the language by the many varied books on Latin and Latin mythology which are in the Latin room’s library collec- tion. These are of great value to the various people who compete each year in J.C.L. contests. Each year delegates are sent to the state conven- tion where officers are elected and the constitution modified. Altus Latin Club is able to send two voting delegates in addition to those who make the field trip. The voting delegates are the ones who cast a vote to select officers, llowever, anyone of the mem- bers is eligible to serve on the constitution convention. The constitution convention’s main purpose is the election of officers and the changing of rules for the state-wide group. 86Larry Yee, James Duke, Jeff Miller. Steve Doughty and Mike Zeaman Rather to study Latin after school. These boys have been selected by Mrs. Culver to travel to the Junior Classical League State Convention to take tests in Latin derivatives. Joe Mason, Thad Gembaez. Margaret How- ard, Carolyn Kelly and Patsy Gorr are among the Latin students who carolled with the club at Christmas, serenading others. LATIN II students were sold as slaves to the second year Latin Clubmembers at the November fourth Latin Club banquet. This has been a custom for many years in the Latin Club. Proceeds from the sale are put in the Latin Club treasury. Mike Starr feeds his Master, Mike Zeaman, while Norman Giroux waits to give him a modern day drink of soda pop. The banquet had its lighter moments- JANET HALE just seems to be swaying as she is auctioned by Thad Gembaez, who conducted the slave sale of lowly plebes. It was the pho- tographer, of course, who goofed. Thad’s auc- tioneering tactics proved so successful that the treasury of the Latin Club was enriched beyond expectations and it will go for a good cause. Latin Club members vehemently deny that theirs is a useless or dead language. They point out that Latin is the basis of several languages, including French, Spanish and English. More- over Latin is the scientific language of the world, the nearest thing to a universal langu- age today. For these students who plan to major in law or medicine, it is an essential. For students who intend to major in philosophy or any of the humanities it is highly recom- mended. There are various forms of Latin. Among these are classic Latin and medieval or Church Latin, and also Modern Legal Latin. New emphasis on the study of Latin is being felt as a result of additional requirements by several major colleges that Latin be a part of the high school preparatory curriculum. Latin also helps build foundations for science study. 87SECOND AND third year 1963-64 Spanish Club mem- bers included: FIRST ROW: Linda Price, Rhana Ro- berson, Peggy Hadley, Linda Wells, Linda Townsend, Shucki Overton, Betty Snow, Jerri Snow, Sharon Spoon, Donna Aboussie, Nedra Glover.

SPANISH CLUB Language Is Valuable In Southwest Area Early in September the Spanish Club met for the first time. Officers were chosen, and it was decided that the club would meet regularly each month. At all meetings business is conducted in the Spanish language. Many members parti- cipated in short skits done entirely in Spanish. This year the club learned many new Spanish songs, and at Christmas went caroling. It is the belief of the sponsors, Mrs. Bob Rooker and Mrs. C. M. Ewing, that students must use a new' language in order to speak it well. At the club meetings the members had to use Spanish a great deal, because no other language was spoken, even in conversation. Participation in this club not only helped the members to speak better Spanish, but also to understand culture. OFFICERS FOR the Span- ish Club this year were: Mike McKinney, sergeant; Linda Price, secretary; Jerri Lynn Snow, songlead- er; Karen Spoon, treasurer; Janice Kay Smith, ser- geant; Lonnie Eggleston; vice president; and Mike Williams, president.

Mrs. Rooker generally keeps a part of her large col- lection on the bulletin board in her classroom. Many times members of the club lend items brought back from their own travels, or resi- dence in Spain and Spanish-American countries. If . , Su SIGNS ANNOUNCING that Spanish Club pictures would soon be made were posted in both Spanish classrooms. Mary Bailey, a second year club mem- ber, and Eugena Cagle, initiated into Spanish Club in January, translate the Spanish to English to double check accuracy of time and place for the yearbook photography sessions. Mary, Spanish Club reporter, was annual editor, and Eugena a sopho- more annual staff member for the 63-64 Bulldog. 89MEMBERS of Mrs. Dale Culver’s 1963-64 French Club included the following:: FIRST ROW: Pam Marple, Nanette Bilyeu, Linda Green, Myra Pritts, Diane Hollingsworth, Terry King, Fran Heard.

Second Year For French Club Is Busy Era 1963-64 FRENCH club officers, Nanette Bilyeu, president, Don Bowen, vice-president, and Mary L. Hill, secretary, check equipment in the French language lab to be sure that it is in good operating order, and ready for use at all times during the day. French Club, sponsored by Mrs. Dale Culver, provides an excellent opportunity for members to practice their French and enjoy practicing at the same time. The club decided to meet one night each month. After the regular business was taken care of, there was time for the members to discuss their travels abroad. Among the highlights of the year’s meetings, was the showing of slides of France taken by John and Jim Percival. During the Yuletide season the group went caroling as is the tradition of the WARMLY DRESSED in winter togs and ready to go, club members, Cindy Worley, Bob Nelson, Nan- ette Bilyeu, Terry King, and Don Bowen, go over their Christmas songs once more before the carol- ing party. Caroling is a traditional practice of the French Club, with a party preceding the song festival. French Club. Another seasonal practice is the crowning of the queen. This year’s queen, Nanette Bilyeu, was crowned at the spring banquet. Since French is a spoken language, first and second year French students use the language lab extensively. There they learn to copy the correct pronunciation and usage of words. French Club members are of the opinion that with their knowledge of the French langu- age they will be able to communicate with other people the world over in their study-travels. 90EXPERIMENTATION IN physics, chemistry, and biology is a regu- lar part of the JETS agenda at their meetings. Looking at the records of a recent experiment are Mary Bailey, and Stan Rust while Mr. R. J. Lockhart, sponsor, holds the records. Observing the weigh- ing of a compound are Mary Nic- holson, Dwight Dennis, Sherron Forrester, Mary Cole, Mrs. R. J. Lockhart, sponsor, and Jeff Flem- ing. They have just completed the making of iron sulfide. Under the guidance of their sponsors, the JETS perform more complicated experiments than time permits in a regular classroom. JUNIOR ENGINEERING Study of Sciences Is Promoted by JETS Junior Engineering and Technical Society ( JETS) is a club organized for the student who is interested in the physical sciences, chemistry and physics, as well as for the person who is interested in any of the various fields of mathematics. JETS meets every other week on Thursday afternoon. Every other week an outside speaker is selected to speak before the club while on alternate meetings a speaker is selected from the club’s own members. The only requirement for being a member is that he or she must have a science project. JETS members make field trips. Outstanding trips this year included a trip to Palo Duro Canyon, Texas, during the Thanksgiving holiday. Geology and the geographic phenomenon of this famous canyon were studied. Other trips had similar goals of increasing scientific knowledge through personal observation. DAVID MARTIN explains his diagram of the different types of blood. The jar contains blood, and is kept refrigerated. STUDIES IN physics have proven to be educational to members of the JETS. Looking at the wave pattern pro- duced bv the human voice on an oscilloscope are David Martin, Lonnie King, Nicky Bagley, Mr. Bill Tipton, spon- sor and Richard Kouba. JETS take fullest advantage of the new facilities at Altus High to develop their various experiments. OFFICERS OF THE JETS are Mary Bailey, re- porter; Stan Rust, treasurer; Lonnie King, vice- president; Nicky Bagley, president; and Sherron Forrester, secretary. The JETS officers are looking at a reference book from which they hope to gain necessary information. 91MEMBERS of Mr. Buel Garvin’s Biology Club are: FIRST ROM: Linda Parsons, Linda Southern, Jenni- fer Wilbom, Karen Slack, Mary Osborne, Judy Willi- ams, Madeleine Harbison, Mary Montoya.

BIOLOGY CLUB Members Of Club Interview Bacteriologist In Biology Club’s second year of existence, it has proved successful in increasing the interest and knowledge in the science field. Mr. Buel Garvin, sponsor and advisor, has been helpful in planning its many activities. Dues are col- lected to cover expenses of necessary materials for the club’s activities. Meetings are held MR. GARVIN and the officers of the club he spon- sors discuss one of the topics available for study at the next meeting. The officers usually invite a special guest speaker to introduce a new subject to the group. Officers for the 1963-64 yjar were: Jennifer Wiibom, secretary, Paul Finke, president. twice a month in Mr. Garvin’s biology labora- tory. Dr. Phillip Willey spoke to the club on the study of bacteriology and the importance of finishing formal education, no matter what career is chosen. Joe Mason became president to fill the vacancy created when Paul Finke moved to South Dakota during the Christmas. JOSEPH MASON and Mr. Buel Garvin listen at- tentively to Dr. P. Willey as he discusses a rou- tine day in the bacteriology laboratory of a modern hospital. Dr. Willey was one of the guest speakers who were chosen to talk to the group. He appeared on the first program of a two-month-long study . 92AMONG the guest speakers of the biology club sponsored by Mr. Don Jones was Dr. Kenneth Cul- ver. The doctor spoke to the group on the art of hypnotism and its use in therapy for many illnesses. f 1 % art. 11 m ¥ r .LJ "l OFFICERS of the biology club sponsored by Mr. Don Jones were: Sheryl Runividge, president; Jack Fan- cier, vice-president; Carolyn Phillips, secretary; Mr. Jones, sponsor; and Beverly Forrester, treasurer. BIOLOGY CLUB Biological Studies Basis For Later Science Biology becomes increasingly interesting to students who are active in one of the Biology Clubs at AHS. Biology is a basic subject for persons planning to enter medicine, public health, nursing, and allied fields. All Altus High students are urged to take this course and participate in club activities as early in their high school educational careers as possible. MEMBERS of the 1963-64 Biology Club sponsored by Mr. Jones included: FIRST ROW: Sue Stephens, Ruth Ann McCarty, Brenda Campbell, Phyllis Sumner, Mary Med lock, Kathy Fisher. SECOND ROW': Sheryl Sut- tle, Sandra Wozniak, Carolyp Phillips, Marilyn Phil- lips, Barbara Bryan, Susan Tims, Carolyn Henry, Beverly Forrester, Melanie Sue Windle, Mitzi Stand- lee, Janice Hays, Sheryl Runividge.

Speech Department comprises one of the most creative of all AHS courses. The primary objective of the depart- ment is to make students feel comfortable before audiences. Other objectives include making students realize the importance of choosing words carefully and being capable of communicating aims and ideas to others through speech. Many hours are spent by students in preparation of materials for the entertain- ment of both speech class and student body. Speakers bring together research information, imagination, and originality in their talks. On many occasions students are called upon to speak before various organizations on informative and entertaining topics. Through the department speech students also produce a play each year as well as participate in other stage productions. Pep assemblies, coronations, and many other entertain- ment events are planned by students under the direction of Mr. J. C. Hicks. Behind the scenes during these productions, students who are never seen by the audiences are hard at work controlling lighting, prompt- ing, and managing state properties. By the end of the year most students are also competent make-up artists and property and costume designers. In addition they are given practical experience in organizing and pro- ducing an entertaining program. “SOFTEN THE LIGHTS,” J.C. Hicks insthicts Larry Ray during the Queen Crowning. Mr. Hicks spends most of his assembly time directing lighting, props, and rehearsals backstage. SPEECH DEPARTMENT directed the Football Coronation. Members of the court were: Vic Cleveland, Judy Rooker, Avis Whitworth, John Bingaman, Anne Riddle, and Steve Moore. 94WHEN THE TWO debate teams go to tournaments, they are called Team A and Team B. Members of Team A were: Eugena Cagle, Fred Doak, and Leroy Kraatz. Debater’s talents are not limited to one field alone. They may enter many different events such as dramatic interpretations, dramatic duets, poetry reading, and girls’ and boys’ extemporaneous speak- ing. JOHN PERCIVAL strikes the traditional pose of the orator. Of course, he was caught off-guard by the camera at the photography session set up for the debate teams. John and Jim Percival comprise the second debate team. At the Cameron Tournament both boys entered the boys’ extemp contest, and John placed first. Jim later won a first, too. SPEECH LEROY KRAATZ looks on as other members of the Forensic League go over plans for new speeches and debates. Other members were: Fred Doak, John Per- cival, Charlene Longley, and Jim Percival.

Stu- dents often cover stories for local and other newspapers, radio and television stations. They attend jury trials of district court, see citizenship g ra n t e d, interview stage personalities. They learn the “other side” of their own high school as "beats” are changed with each issue of the Collar. JOURNALISM FIFTH HOUR journalism students look at a new issue of the Collar. SEATED are Janie Allgood, Toy Eas- ley and Cindy Worley; SECOND ROW: Elaine Troy, Diane Cline, Polly Wilson, Sheryl Blackstone, Barbara Watson, Jane LaGree and Karen Russell THIRD ROW: Billie Randall, Morris Roberts, Nicky Bagley, Wes Booker, Billy Little and Lawrence Wilks.

Other sixth hour students planning Collar make-up are: Roy Sewell, Vic Cleveland, Mike Zea- man, Dan Austin, Jerry Duck, Thomas Barnes, Donald Groves, Keith Walker, Charlie Howard, and Lonnie Groves. TOMMY BARNES begins home room delivery route as Mike Zeaman, Elaine Troy, Brenda Milligan, Dan Austin, Barbara Crouch and Jerry Duck stuff the COLLAR with ROTO sections. 96Journalism is a solid subject in Oklahoma, incorporating news, radio and television writing, as well as magazine articles. Altus Journalism students tour the Times-Democrat, the Oklahoma Publishing Company, interview visiting celebrities and go to the capitol for conferences with the governor, justices of the su- preme court and others. Finan- cial writing is learned through financial district tours, weekly chart making and “purchase" of a portfolio of stocks. Photogra- phy includes taking pictures, de- veloping and printing them in the departmental dark room. NO MATTER how much advance planning is made there always is a last minute rush at deadline time. Issue editors for the February Collar were Toy Easley, Roberta Hendricks, Donna Russell and Wynell Siniard (not pic- tured). Nedra Glover, standing, helps out with typing. Issue editors are measuring columns. JOURNALISM volunteer assistants check records, keep the department library, help check out materials. Karen Russell, Elaine Troy and Diane Cline were first semester volunteers. With journalism experience last year, Karen and Diane worked with each issue editor group in editing the Collar. CLINT KELLEY, chief photographer for the Bulldog and Collar, takes a shot of Paul Finke and Judy Williams to be used in the Personalities sec- tion. It was Paul’s last day in school here and Clint caught his picture by the new Bulldog Lane sign. Clint is at almost all school functions to cover life along Bulldog Lane. MISS JOHNELLE KIDD, practice teacher, in- structs Teddy Woods and Jimmy Thompson in developing and printing pictures they took for journalism assignments. Miss Kidd, who worked as a press photographer at OU’s school of journalism, taught the six weeks unit in photography this year while Mrs. Weldon Ferris, journalism teacher, taught make-up essentials. 97NICKY BAGLEY, co-editor; Mrs. Weldon Ferris, advisor, and Mary Bailey, editor, meet for final conference as the Bulldog nears completion. One of the last in a long series of meetings that began more than 15 months ago, they are the ones who select the theme, cover design and type for the Bulldog. CLINT KELLEY, senior staff member, shows Mary Bailey, editor, his new camera. Clint uses a variety of cameras as chief photographer for student publications. What is a yearbook? An annual such as the Bulldog must mirror the year so plainly that 10 years or 50 years from now a reader would know what life really was like “along Bulldog Lane” in 1963-64. Actual planning begins by mid-spring of the year before, long ahead of the summer supplement of the current book. Hundreds of pictures are made to obtain the ones that most clearly represent the school story. Forty percent of Altus student bodv are Air Force dependents. New students ar- rive, others move regularly. Student sections are kept open until the last possible moment. Activities at previous high schools are in- cluded in senior biographies for students who transferred too late to be able to participate in similar ones at AHS. Editors believe that’s why from Morrocco and Anchorage, Labora- dor and Madrid, Ankara and London and other points around the globe come letters from former students: “Don’t forget, I want my yearbook.” JUNIOR EDITORS, Sylvia Allen, Brian Cole, and Jan Mc- Askili, junior staff members, found checking proofs for final revision one of the biggest jobs of the year as the Bulldog reached a record number of pages. Work for the day usually was planned during home room, completed during seventh hour. APPRENTICES a few weeks earlier, sophomore staff mem- bers Eugena Cagle, Tom Hender- son and Madeleine Harbison soon became veterans at picture blocking, paste-ups and copy fitting. It was all a part of the publishing business learned as a modem yearbook, such as the Bulldog, is prepared for the printer. 98ROGER HARMON, Nicky Bagley, Mr. John Clark, and Mary Bailey met early in this year in order to discuss ideas about the theme, motif, and type for the infant Bulldog. There were several such meetings often lasting well into the night as the numerous choices were discussed. TWO JUNIOR members of the staff, Sylvia Allen and Jan McAskill, work together on one of the lay- outs. Sylvia has been a member of the staff since her sophomore year; Jan joined the staff this year. The girls w'orked together on several layouts.

Larry Kelly adjusts the Christmas tree in the Pepsi- Cola window as Don Butler and Randy Pollard add the festive trimmings. Jeanie Hunt places the symbolic Christmas gift on the mantel of the fire- place as Pat Elliot waits to set a large doll under the tree. Practicality is the key word of the AHS Distri- butive Education Club. D. E., in contrast with other clubs, offers students work as well as recreation and education. Through DECA stu- dents are placed in various businesses to learn the art of pleasing the public. Job opportunities are as varied as the students’ interests. Mer- chants from all over the city contact the D.E. co-ordinator, Mr. Paul Roach, to obtain infor- mation about apprentice workers for their re- spective businesses. Students in turn receive the double benefits of learning while earning and receiving credits for their labors. Civic services also lie within the realm of DECA activities. D. E. students participate in Christ- D. E. SECRETARY, Diane Cline, and presi- dent, Larry Ray, discuss plans for the 1964 D. E. “yearbook.” This contains pictures and a small amount of written copy about the members of the club and events of the current year. Last year the Altus scrapbook won second place at the national contest. Although the contests on a state and nation-wide basis have been discontinued, DECA Club decided to keep the practice and compile a yearbook just for the benefit of its members. CLUB OFFICERS are: Mr. Paul Roach, co-ordinator, Ronnie Burk, uarliamentarian; Barbara Watson, .reasurer; Larry Ray, president; Barbara Ward, chaplain; Bruce Magilj, reporter; Lila Stanfill, historian; Billy Little, vice-presi- dent; Diane Cline, secretary. Offi- cers spend much of their class time and many hours of free time in planning club projects and other activities. They also exchange information and ideas with other clubs throughout the United States. 100DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION students are: Ronnie Burk, Mr Paul Roach, co-ordinator, Judy Yates, David Lay, Don Butler, Randy Pollard, Jeanie Hunt, Larry Kelly, Pat Elliott, Gary Bearden, Tommy Gilbert, Bill Munsen, Sherri Coppage. DECA conducts toy drives for underprivileged children and aids drives of charitable organiza- tions. The Distributive Education department has been enlarged and moved to a new area of the school building. The DECA Club has ap- proximately thirty-five members who are en- gaged in their first and second years of the course. Officers are chosen from the ranks of both first and second year students. This year’s club engaged in candy sales as a means of rais- ing money for its operation. The spirit of co- operation between employer and employee helps to improve the effectiveness of the club. Stu- dents and their bosses meet annually for an evening of pleasure and entertainment at the Employer-Employee Banquet. MR. PAUL ROACH, Distributive Education co- ordinator, lectures on the arts of salesmanship and presenting a pleasing image to the public. Through the year students also receive instruction in habits of proper dress and public-pleasing personality characteristics. Mr. Roach faces a challenging job each year in imparting this knowledge of good salesmanship to his students. SECOND YEAR members of Distributive Education Club include: Bruce Magill, Tavi Villanueva, Larry Ray, Billy Lovelace, Lila Stanfill, Barbara Watson, Nancy Groves, Diane Cline, Wynell Siniard, Polly Wilson, Barbara Ward, Billy Little, Audrey Smiley, Ronnie Burk, Mr. Paul Roach, co-ordinator, Gary Wilson.

Terry King, Roberta Clark, Cariotta Stout, Jennifer Jones, Mary Nicholson. Assistants to the vari- ous teachers receive training in many fields. Among these are the library, office, and counselor's assis- tants. The biology and chemistry assistants have a chance to re- view what they have learned. Average grades, a desire t o serve both faculty and students, and a know- ledge of the depart- ment in which they serve are the require- ments for becoming volunteer assistants. CHEMISTRY ASSIST- ANTS work continuously during the hour supplying the students with instru- ments and chemicals. They also are in charge of mixing some of the solu- tions that are used by the students as well as keep- ing the instruments clean and sorted.

A former star athlete himself, he follows the same long practice schedule h e expects of his players to keep in good condition at all times. BOYS' BASKETBALL Bulldog Cagers Play Heavy Schedule Here JOHN BINGAMAN JACK DILTZ Basketball has always been one of the popular sports at Altus High School. Boys have two competitive teams: the Varsity Bulldogs and the alternate team, the Bandits, composed largely of underclassmen. Home games are played in the gym of the Physical Education building, on Bulldog Lane, and one of Oklahoma’s outstanding facilities. During tournaments, dressing rooms can provide space for as many as eight teams. Basketball games usually are at night. Bandits play at 6:30; the girls’ Lassies at 7:30 and the Bulldogs at 8:30. Teams start conditioning early in the fall, often working extra periods on weekends. Although many vie for the varsity, only 12 make it, and there always is still competition for a suit. In addition to the scheduled games, the boys enter numerous tournaments, regularly bringing back trophies. Evidence of the attainments through the years may be seen in the trophy cases in the lobby of Physical Education building. Proponents of the game believe basketball reflects modem life with its fast changing pace and tremendous concentration required for the split second decisions which must be made during the game. Many of the out- standing scholars of Altus High are members of one of the teams. LONNIE EGGLESTON DAVE FENELL TIM FENELL DAVID PICKETT 114BANDIT MEMBERS are: FIRST ROW: Larry Mar- tin, Mike Norcross, Bobby Darwin. Jim Caster, Don Alexander, Richard Cun- ningham, Hal Lovett. SECOND ROW: Coach Nick Wolfe, Kerry Larma, David Lingle, Tim Potts, Cecil Chesser, and mana- ger Doug Abbott. Bandits team is composed of the sophomore and junior members who go out for basketball but do not re- ceive suits for the Varsity team. These boys play on the same evenings as do the Varsity but two hours earlier. Some boys play on both teams, as regulars for the Bandits and sub- stitutes for the Bulldogs. DOUGLAS ABBOTT, senior, is the only manager of the basketball team this year. Doug manages not only the Bulldogs but the Bandits as well. Among his duties are seeing that the eqipment is in proper order, that the boys’ uniforms are kept clean, and checking equip- ment in and out to the play- ers. Doug assists Coach Tah- suda when first aid is neces- sary. Doug is well versed in his duties. He has been a manager and trainer for three years not only for the basketball teams but also for football and baseball. DAVE FENELL, 6’4” senior gains the rebound from an unidentified Woodward player while David Pickett and other Woodward players watch. Altus won a decisive victory in this game with a 51 to 31 score. Fenell major factor in this game used his height to good advantage in rebounds and close in scor- ing. This game was played as part of the Altus Invita- tional Tournament in which the Altus Bulldogs placed third in hard competition.
