Text from Pages 1 - 170 of the 1966 volume:

VIEW NOT often seen in Southwestern Oklahoma is the AHS administration building and evergreens covered by snow. Doors of Altus High are seldom shut, even when weather conditions bring icy roads and zero temperatures so un- familiar to Southwestern Oklahomans. When area schools closed in mid-January during the heaviest snowstorm in many years, announcement was made that AHS would take up classes as usual. Bulldogs found a winter wonder- land on their campus and beauties many had never seen before. When skies cleared and sunlight broke through, its brightness was reflected indoors to students and teachers alike. It was a day which may not be repeated this decade. Altus Senior High School is an institution of learning. It is alive with young men and women who walk her halls five davs a week as thcv studv subjects as divergent as com- puter-related math, good salesmanship methods and home economics. Students’ faces reflect their enjoyment in learn- ing, in meeting other voung people with similar interests, in working on common ground with students, teachers, and administrators. These arc part of the all round education every student receives at AHS, and each is reflected in this edition of the Bulldog for the 1965-1966 school year. 1966 BULLDOG of Altus Senior High School, Altus, Oklahoma Volume XXXIII, published by the Bulldog Staff ooI.XD OF DAY in early September sends new and returning Bulldogs to busses and student parking lot. EDITOR Eugena Cagle needed only this picture to finish contents page 0. What is any book but a mirror of the world in which wc live? Our purpose in writing the 1966 Bulldog has been to give a true image of life within Altus Senior High School—from space age science and tele-processing to carefree pep assemblies before sports events. In later years these pages will hold reflect- ed memories for each person who is now a part of AHS, and especially for us who have written the Bulldog. With an ordinary mirror, the image vanishes when the reflected object moves on; the 1965-66 school year, however, shall remain a permanent reflection in the pages of this Bulldog yearbook. Eugena F.

Madeleine Harbison, and Linda Southern prepare for January deadline of forty-two pages. 0FACILITIES for an Aerospace Symposium that attracted national headlines were provided hy Altus Senior High for Altus Air Force Ease to begin the 1965-66 school year. Exhibits such as the Freedom 7 Mercury capsule and X-15, shown parked between Cletus Street Field House and the auditorium, were augmented by panels of famcit space scientists and educators. Education came of age in 1966, in the nation, the state and in Altus. For the first time former school teachers held the country’s two highest offices. More federal legis- lation was passed for education than at all previous periods ombined. Education attracted top attention in Oklahoma also, with laws passed making possible new advances in opportunity, and state voters approved a new law making greater local support possible through additional millagc. At the local level Altus patrons preserved a 73-year-old tradition, going back to the founding of the community. No schoof measure has ever failed to pass in an Altus election. Altus again led the state in approving even- school measure proposed. What can be accomplished when school and community work together with an alert board of education, administrative leaders,' and a student body that really cares, is reflected in the pages which follow. 1CLETUS B. STREET Field House, one of western Oklahoma's largest physical education facilities, can seat more than 2,000- AGRICULTURE and industrial trades training share this building with classrooms at the front and laboratory wings at the rear. Physical fitness programs can be fun, as Altus High stu- dents well know. Cletus B. Street Field House is used not only for competitive bovs’ and girls’ basketball, but also for indoor workouts for football, baseball, wrestling and gymnastics varying from trampoline to folk dancing. 2 Located in the center ot a major diversified agricultural district, Altus vocational agriculture program constantly changes in step with the vast innovations in mechanization. Closely allied arc the industrial trades taught in the same building just across Bulldog Lane from the field house.SPECIAL FACILITIES Auditorium, field house used by community also Alcus Senior High School buildings arc seldom dark. Calendars are kept months in advance for the auditorium, the cafeteria, the stadium, and the main high school build- ing. School events come first, but buildings may be used for any worthwhile community event at a rental based upon actual cost for utilities and maintenance. Concert troupes are amazed at the performing-arts facilities of the air-conditioned auditorium. Area-wide choral festivals and instrumental clinics are held in the music education build- ing, also air-conditioned for year round use, and in the adjoining auditorium. Inquiries already are arriving concerning convention booking of the new air-conditioned cafeteria facilities. More than 600 persons can be seated at a dinner in this room and ever)' person will have an unobstructed view of the speakers’ table. Circular design of the cafeteria makes possible a domed ceiling with no center supports. Archi- tectural detail, designed by W. A. Appleby, Jr., school architect, is shown on page 5. CAMERA FANS have approximately six days each year to snap this side entrance view of the auditorium. For sun and shadows to be exactly right it must be late afternoon with the sun at the equinox, as it was on September 21 this year. DISCUSSING BOOKING arrangements for the new cafeteria. Mr. Roy Williams, principal, and Mr. Clifford Peterson, super- intendent, pause beneath its exterior scaffolding to read the latest requests for information concerning future availability. MUSIC EDUCATION Building provides Oklahoma's finest facilities for vocal music instruction in its west wing, and for instrumental music in the east wing. 3UNDA SOUTHERN, computer Ub assistant. watches as Richard Cunningham feeds the G-15 his first major math program. Altus Senior High mathematics department joined those of Denver, Colo, and Oakland, Calir., this year in offering a hands on computer program for advanced math stu- dents. Computer-related math, however, has been a part of the curriculum for three years. Two years ago Altus had the national champion junior computer scientist, and last year the third place winner. Linda Southern won an eight weeks summer National Science Foundation scholarship to the University of Okla- homa in computer programming, and returned as a senior to become Mr. Earl Newberry’s lab assistant. Mr. New- berry, director of the computer department, sponsors the nation's first chapter of the Future Computer Programmers of America, founded in October of this school year.HOVERING OVER the new cafeteria, these half tone beams of laminated yellow pine exemplify advanced building techniques. Newest addition to the highschool campus this year is the air-conditioncd cafeteria-classroom building completed in time for use during the second term. Throughout its construction the new materials, in spectacular uses at- tracted building experts and architects as well as school administrators. Most dramatic phase of the construction period is preserved for history with the photograph above as the 12 wooden beams, each weighing 1000 pounds, arc posi- tioned to form an arch 21 feet in height. Wall carpeting above mosiactileto prevent echoes is another unusual facet. Completed, these are now walnut finished beams, giving a dramatic contrast to the walls. Best of all an unobstructed view is provided for programs and conferences. 5DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION students headed the United Fund drive at AHS for the second year, raising $56.53. In photo below, Mark Briscoe, DEC A president, and Mr. Paul Roach, sponsor, present the funds to Mrs. Kenneth Wallace at United Fund headquarters in downtown Altus at the end of the drive.

MACHINES class partners Ann DtCindio, standing, and Shirley Marshall recheck their calculator tapes before recording results.OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION Vocational training open to all Altus High enrollees Each year vocational education classes are enlarged in scope and enrollment at Altus High. Last year Shop III classes were added, and students learned basic principles of electrical wiring, plumbing, carpentry and design. This year the course included more complicated construction. Vocational agriculture students won grand championship honors at the Oklahoma State Fair in Oklahoma City with a farm shop exhibit, which included a welding trailer, cattle feeder, livestock trailer and tractor lift, worth approximately ten times their construction cost. WIRING PROCEDURES are checked by Shop III Undent, lohn Bates, Robert Belter.

More and more attend summer classes, earn up to 23 units by the end of their senior year. Basic courses in high school make advanced and professional courses far easier in college or technical schools, as graduate friends advise. History, psychology', sociology, democracy all lend themselves to independent study as well as group research. Science and mathematics have become research tools for teenagers as well as for those working at a doctoral level. Altus schools provide the necessary equipment with the aid of federal programs and informed faculty members.JANICE DUNCAN, in left foreground, opposite page , Bar- bara Smith and Tamara Marts check answers as Mrs. Kester Lackey fills in psychology test blanks. SLIDE RULE techniques are demonstrated by Gary Don Hardy, left, as junior classmates. Debte Chapman, looks on in math lab. Altus students often win top three places in slide rule contests. MICROSCOPIC studies fascinate science-minded sophomore biologist, Mike Farley, center below, as he observes bacterial chain reactions. Mike is a member of an all-boy section. ARRIVING AN HOUR EARLY each Tues- day or Thursday was no chore for a volun- teer class of juniors who agreed to meet at 7:30 a.m. in order to study basic computer work. Volunteer teacher Mr. Earl Newberry, left above, works with Linda Lees. Gary Jones. Paul Doughty and George Ellis discuss projects. CHEMISTRY II students Kerry Larma, standing, and Lloyd Lowe hope to equal the record of advanced chemistry students of last year in earning college entrance hours. Both plan science-based careers. AMERICAN HISTORY students Tommy Slane, Gayle Sellers, Bruce Creed, Brenda Wil- son, Cherri McFarland, and Larry Green vol- unteered for debate team duty on the Viet Nam crisis. They spent weeks in reading and research for the project. 11LANGUAGE ARTS Four major languages read, spoken, written at AHS ENGLISh III is both literature and grammar. Darryl Cope, confers wttb Mrs. Clarence Rodgers, instructor, on an assignment. DRAWINGS and models by students in English II study of "A Tale of Two Cities' are examined by Robert Hickerson and Ronnie Dorsey. LIBRARY SCIENCE senior Kent Woolums stamps Carol Wallace's reading choice. Kent s library credit will provide many job opportunities. FORTY MODERN language students can use the AHS language lab simultaneously, working together or independently.CHAUCER MAY BE turning in his grave, but English IV students lack Fancher, Diana Lapp and loe Mason portrayed "Canterbury Tales' characters as "What's My Line" panelists. AMERICA'S YOUNGEST Congressman, Hon. led lohnson, lr.. holds a press interview for Journalism I students. In foreground are Gary Blevins and Louanna Law. SIX WEEKS tests in Speech classes often are demonstrations. Chad Iones got an "A" with his lightning fast explanation of how a frying chicken should be prepared. Broadened scope of the National Defense Education Act makes possible acquisition of additional equipment for modern language and library pur- chases for English, for school libraries, and for geography and economics. Title III macching funds already have been utilized for the installation of language and mathematics laboratories and Chemistry II and physics equip- ment usually found only in large university departments. Renewed emphasis locally and nationally will be on language arts during the latter sixties. 13UNITED STATES SENATE Page Benny Byrd. sophomore, finished his second semester of school at the page s academy in the nation s capitol.

MERIT COMMENDATION AWARDEES Eugena Cagle, Joe Mason and Linda Southern are congratulated by Mr. Roy Williams, principal. All were in the top two percent of the nation on the National Merit Scholarship test given here. EDUCATION '66 Life has varying facets for all students at Altus All work and no play makes for school drop outs, but at Altus High work sometimes is as much fun as play. Students have opportunities to participate in “strictly for fun” events such as TWIRP (The Woman Is Requested to Pay) Week when boys and girls trade dating obliga- tions. Or they may enter such laboratory assignments as the school radio news program, publication of the school newspaper and yearbook, appearance with vocal and instru- mental groups, and participation in academic clubs. Great- est challenge of all comes at national levels when students receive awards through the Merit tests or arc chosen for particular honors in competition with those throughout the country. Altus High annually has its share of these. CANDY TREAT for Steve Green is purchased by Jama Smith as a part of the fall celebration of TWIRP week. Both are seniors. 14ALL DRESSED UP and some place to go was the lot of the high school auditorium and at programs in many areas. New Varsity Girls Glee Club as they performed on stage at the uniforms this year were Bulldog blue cotton A-line dresses. TWO DRUM MAJORS, Roger Pippin and Lynda Leavitt, led "That Altus Band’. BARE FEET only were visible to Latin Club members welcoming plebes at their slave sale. Madeleine Harbison is auctioneer, plebe is Cathy Shupe. COMMUNITY COLLEGE Grads choose Altus junior college Approximately seven out of every ten Altus High graduates who go to college do a portion of their basic work at Altus Junior College. Estab- lished in 1923, becoming a fully accredited two-year college in 1926, thousands of graduates have gone from AJC to senior colleges and universities throughout the nation. AJC is one of the community colleges used as a model for other such institutions now being established in many states. For the graduates of the Class of 1966, Altus Junior College offers immediate opportunity to make up to nine hours in summer day classes, or six hours in night classes, while earning addi- tional money with a summer job. CLASS OF 1965 grqds Sbuckie Overton, Linda Wells and Roberta Clark dis- cuss the “Al" intramural shirts. Roberta is admissions assistant at the college.

PARK-LIKE atmosphere of the new air- conditioned college building results from its location across from the city park. Stu- dents spend warm weather between-class hours studying or visiting under the trees or by the city swimming pool. 16DEDICATION And from our hearts we pledge thee true devotion. • So may our lives reflect and honor thee. —Esther Phillips Williams Mr. Newberry has studied several summers through the National Science Foundation. He teaches Algebra II and senior math as well as the new computer course. He was instrumental in securing the use of the G-15 for AHS. He teaches one hour of regular computer programming for high school credit, a junior college level course, and twice weekly he instructs a 7:30 a.m. class for AHS students who are not enrolled in a regular computer class. In addi- tion he sponsors the alpha chapter of Future Data Pro- cessors of America. His door is always open to students who arc eager for knowledge and the study of math- related subjects. When a student needs information about current events, colleges, or when the Scholastic Aptitude Test is available, he has only to ask Mrs. Ferris, for she generally knows. Mrs. Ferris is a regional director for public relations and public information for the National Education Associa- tion. She organized the first chapter of Future Journalists of America in the nation. She was once introduced as “the lady who docs everything for the Altus schools.” She is public relations director for the whole city school system and on the State Public Relations Committee of the Oklahoma Education Association. She teaches journ- alism at AHS and is yearbook advisor. The Bulldog staff is especially indebted to her for the guidance she has provided in writing the book. 1966 Bulldog honors math and journalism instructors AHS is a school where young men and women meet together five days a week to prepare themselves for life in the adult world. This process of preparation—listening, studying, learning—appears an effortless routine carried out everv school day. Wo sometimes fail, however, to sec the extra work our teachers do to assure us of every educa- tional opportunity. Two nationally known teachers at Altus High work round the clock to improve the learning available to all students. For their devotion to Altus High, her students, and young people as a whole, the 1966 Bulldog is dedicated to Mrs. Weldon Ferris and Mr. Earl Newberry. MR. EARL NEWBERRY glances over notes for lecture for a meeting of Future Data Processors of America which he organized first semester. Altus chapter is the first known in the nation and is made up of students enrolled in computer math courses. PUBLIC RELATIONS Director Mrs. Weldon Ferris is seldom seen idle. She teaches journalism, is yearbook advisor and sponsor of the first chapter of Future Journalists of America m the nation. 17FACULTY EYcnrxA Important part of every picture is its background Unless a photograph has the right surrounding for the subject, it detracts from the focal point. Faculty and administration are the background for Altus High. They often are taken for granted; without them the school would lose both impetus and fulfill- ment. They put the emphasis on the student, on what he knows, and what he must be taught. Faculty sponsorship and activities in class and club affairs reflect the interest of the AHS teachers in young people that goes beyond the classroom and continues into future years of college and young adulthood. FRENCH summer is shared by Mrs. Dale Culver with students. OPEN LINE with administrative offices, parents and community is part of the day for Mr. Roy Williams, Altus principal.SCHOOL BOARD WALTER MARSHALL Board President HATTAN McMAHAN Member LEVI BEACH Treasurer JOE BUCK Member Busy men dedicate time to further education “Most public spirited, unselfish group in America today,” was the way local school boards were described in a recent book. Which seems, also, to be the consensus of Altus school district patrons who elected each of these men by an almost unanimous vote. They spend hundreds of hours annually, without pay, in service of the schools. Working in close cooperation with Supt. Clifford Peterson, they formulate policies by which success and happiness of approximately 6000 future citizens may depend. All are college educated men, representing in their personal careers retailing, banking, realty, taxation and agri-business. JACK COLVILLE EUGENE BRYCE Member Vice President BOARD MEMBERS Colville. Buck, McMahan and Bryce watch as Pres. Marshall signs contract. Supt. Peterson. Mrs. Cross await document.administration Superintendent plans decade in advance for schools When newcomers or educational visitors view the AHS campus for the first time, they invariably express astonish- ment. Beauty of buildings, and spaciousness of the area attract first attention, but purposes for which the structures are utilized is the basis for surprise. Although Altus school district has less than 30,000 in- habitants, facilities offered in all 14 grades approach those of the largest cities in variety and scope. It is not enough, for this school system, to offer merely the necessary' sub- jects for college entrance and basic vocational skills. Addi- tional steps are taken to provide the cultural and recrea- tional outlets which characterize interests of the educated man or woman. As superintendent of schools, Mr. Clifford Peterson sees the whole educational vista. He often says that for Chem- istry II, for instance,to be the successful advanced place- ment course it should be, science, reading and arithemtic must be taught well initially from grade one upward; and educational planning must he ten years ahead. OFFICIAL REPRESENTATIVE for the school system, Suft. Clifford Peterson is nationally known as an educational leader and administrator, and is an authority on new educa- tional trends in the United States. ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT Bailey Snow supervises transporta- tion. census, attendance, textbooks, supplies, and subject matter groups. MRS WALTER CROSS is both clerk of the Altus Board of Edu- cation. and schools’ financial sec- retary for the entire system.Twenty years from now an employment opportunity may depend upon the accuracy of today’s highschool records. Ten years from now a member of the Class of 1966 may get a major promotion as a result of work experience while in high school, or he may have chosen a successful career because of guidance he received. Experienced departmental personnel at Altus High arc keenly aware of this. Attend- ance records, test scores, special honors both in classes and in activities, are carefully recorded. Photostats arc made of these for college entrance, for job recommendations, and for military service inquiries.departments Supervision, transcripts, guidance important Few events escape the attention of Mr. Roy Williams, rincipal.'who knows most of the more than 750 students y name, and is a confidante of many. Years of experience as a principal has convinced Mr. Williams of the import- ance of care in the administration of a high school. He believes in honoring those who make special marks of distinction on the athletic field, in the classroom, and in extra-curricular activities. He believes even more strongly that each student has something special to offer the school and the community as a citizen. “I’ve worked with young people too long not to know that some get started a little later than others before they begin to make their mark.” He’s a strong advocate of vocational education also, and hopes to see constant addi- tions in opportunities in these areas. Altus hopes to have new vocational courses by next fall. ••YOUR ATTENTION please" are familiar words during home-room and sixth hour periods as Mr. Roy Williams, principal, begins school- wide announcements.

LABEIS are worn by all participants in the dinner-work shop meeting for new faculty members, including Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent, and Mrs. Peterson. FACULTY Students find friendship, guidance in many areas Memories of school often include facets of school life in addition to those involving classroom, faculty and fellow classmates. School staff members play an important part in the life of each student. Guidance Counselor Adrian Rankin usually is the first to talk with new students, but Mrs. Ersa Kikcr, school secretary, probably is the first to greet a new arrival. Custodians can make the difference in a well-kept build- ing, with work-ready rooms and laboratories, or one that is in confusion. Transportation, and the method used in bringing students from the 100-square mile Altus district, is vital to those who require it. Well prepared food can mean the difference bewtecn classroom accomplishment and below par physique. Student employment opportuni- ties make possible continued education for many. All add up to meaningful requirements for each staff member. MRS ERSA KIKER is a graduate of Groves-Barnhart Business College in Madison. Wisconsin.

How- ever, some high school teachers as well as high school and junior college students arc employed as bus drivers to transport students to and from rural areas and Altus Air Force Base. Five experienced cooks begin preparation of nutritional meals early each morning. Concession stand staff in the gym also sells food during the lunch hour.

COMPUTER Club members hear Joe Mason read a research paper. TERRAZO FLOOR reflects late evening as homeward bound and homework-laden students call their "See-you-tomorrows ” and began trek to all areas of district.CLASSES CEVSSES When today’s parents hear the word “school" they probably think of stark walls, blackboards, and pen- manship. When AHS parents of tomorrow hear the word “school” their reflections are likely to be of computers and language labs, field trips and re- search, motion pictures of classics and electronic projections. Modern methods make learning more enjoyable and easier. Desire to learn is reflected in student attitudes. Most AHS graduates earn two to five extra credits, then go on to college, often with advanced standing and academic scholarship stipends. RODNEY STOUT hears language lab playback in Spanish.

When the Collar arrives from the printers it requires full cooperation of all “J-studcnts” to get the supplement stuffed, and the paper ready for delivery before last hour. Fresh from the press, the ink sometimes rubs off and and students dress as informally as possible for the occasion. Journalism, in student life as in the profession itself, has many facets.

Ten or fifteen years ago students were prone to save senior year for “fun.” Exactly the opposite is true today. Eighteen units arc required for graduation. Some members of the class will be finishing school with as many as twenty-three units, many will have nineteen or twenty. It’s a question today of how much can be crowded into the three senior high years, rather than how little. Preparation like this pays big dividends in college. Advanced standing examina- tions help some Altus students earn a semester or more credit before ever attending a class at some of the nation’s leading universities and colleges.

From the moment of enrollment students realize something big has happened. Aptitude tests, vocational preference test, reading tests, physical fitness tests follow one another in rapid succession. Counseling in the guidance office and the classroom takes on a serious note of urgency. Situa- tions ease as the weeks pass, and sophomores become part of a tightly knit group, the Altus High student body. STUDENT LEADERS Dell Ray Thom- as, President; Mike Farley, Vice Pres- dent and Tom Carratvay, Secretary treasurer, represent sophomores on school-wide committees during the year, helping unify the former junior high- school rivals into one loyal class. FOUR ALTUS High alumni were elected by sophomores as class parents for 1965-66. Mr. and Airs. Jimmy Snell and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Farley assist students in finding interest groups and planning class events and activities. Lin- da Snell shows them the sophomore section layouts.

From Pep Club to Future Farmers to Future Data Pro- cessors and the Future Business Leaders of America, organizations at AHS lend fraternity and friendli- ness to school life. With the birth of the Future Data Processors of America, the family of Alpha chapters at Altus High also is grown. Altus had the first chapter of Future Journalists in the nation, and one of the first Neighborhood Youth Corps chapters. Eighteen subject-related clubs are a' liable for mem- bership to AHS students. With met .ngs of different groups all through the week, halls of Altus High are busy both day and night. NYC OFFICE aides Barbara Smith and Brenda Duvall.

As a result it was pos- sible for many students to begin study in art forms they may wish to continue as a major or minor in college. Mrs. Dick Maffry, instructor, believes art students should have, as much latitude as possible in finding the media they en- joy, and becoming adept in its use. Of coursceach student docs basic work in water colors, oils, sculpturing, and CHOOSING colors for one's oil painting can often be a dif- ficult job, as Pam Beavers and GayNell Robertson found out. widespread participation sketching from life as well as other art forms. At the Art II level, students begin advanced design in graphics, and textiles; and in ceramics they learn to cast their own molds. In sculpture they' may use heavy metals, wood, clay, or other media. During the final sue weeks students may follow their inclinations in completing special projects and preparing entries for the outdoor art show and other exhibitions in which they participate. MRS. DICK MAFFRY, left, shows how to cast ceramics molds, a project for the Art II students.

Jacki Causey and Allan Thompson embody these qualifications. Both have actively participated in Art Club; they' have designed stage settings for the school productions and assemblies, and they willingly assist anyone who may need their help. Although they arc both versatile with the many different medias available in the field of art, they prefer oil painting from life. Their creations have been featured regularly in many of the local art exhibits. They are shown here with some of their recent works.

Great effort is always made to support the football team. If the AHS football team is there, the band prob- ably will be there also. Much time and practice go into the band s performance, which includes rewriting or re- vising productions, unusual and interesting marching formations, and other showmanship feats which entertain the pre-game audience as well as the half time crowd. This excellent showmanship has made the AHS band a notable community and school organization. AS THE BAND marched in for the final game of the extended season, the December cold air seemed to bring tears to the eyes of many seniors, who realized this was their last march at a football game. MEMBERS of the pep band shown are Wayne McEndree, ferry Reutlin- ger, John Beabout, fames Dickson, and Steve Cox. Boys in the pep band change from time to time, because the members trade to suit their needs. In THE MEMORY OF TOMMY DUVALL 1949-1966 Tommy Duvall, Altus Band Percussionist, suc- cumbed to hemophilia in January after sixteen years of knowing this tc be his inevitable end. Fel- low bandsmen will nevei forget his ready smile, crisp cane nee, and cour- ageous outlook. SHERRY CURTIS and Roger Ptppen tabulate and type final results of the 1965 District Marching Contest. Perennial host to the Southwest Dis- trict Marching contest, That Altus Band is ineligible to compete for the outstanding band trophy, but consist- ently wins top awards from the judges. T his year the band received its highest rating and accolades on its performance from other band directors as well. Host- ing the event requires weeks of prepar- ation, with cverv band member, as- signed a duty. Approximatclv 20 bands enter the annual event. Altus bands- men help with registration, keep sheets for the judges, and help visiting direc- tors secure facilities for their musicians.AN EVENT involving as many people as a marching contest, takes infinite organization, ferry Reuthnger and Dee Wells, his unseen partner on field, help by means of short wave radios to keep the bands moving as dictated by the judges. Reputations of That Altus Band and its concert counterpart, plus the Down Beats, the stage band, have been established in the ten-state area of this region during past years. In 1965 That Altus Band represented the State of Oklahoma as its official unit in the inaugural parade of President Lvndon Johnson. This Mas- the band has been chosen to participate in the festival of Six Flags of Texas. Down Beats has appeared on area and metropolitan television, and as the theatre band for all-school productions.

Soon tourists began to make inquiries concern- ing the purpose of the tree. "Good citizens” of Cottonwood decided the tree had to come down. Because the tree was the only good thing Marthabelle had ever created, she wanted to keep it. When people began destroying them- selves because of it, however, Marthabelle is forced to take down the teacup tree. “Teacup Tree” won first place in one-act play festival at Weatherford, qualifying its cast for competition in regionals and a chance to go on to state. Mar)' Ann Akin and Martv McAnallcn received nomi- nations for best actress. Later in the semester, the play was presented to the student body. REHEARSING the prize winning one-act play.

In December new members were formally welcomed into the group, and officers were elected. The)' were Pat Talley, president; Ruth Ann Mc- Carty, vice president; Sally Reagan, secretary; Beverly Roney, reporter; Cheryl Corey, sentinel. In May the troupe was one of the first clubs to use the new cafeteria for their spring farewell banquet. Another group of new members was initiated at that time.

Activities of the AHS speech department arc varied, giv- ing each student the chance to use his own special talents. There are two organizations for speech students: National Forensic League and National Thespian Troupe. Both are nation-wide honor societies for students of drama. Mem- bership in both is gained by earning the required number of points in different speaking situations. Other activities of the department include an annual three act play, which this year was the comedy, “Quiet Summer. Various as- semblies arc presented throughout the year, including a patriotic and an Easter program. Students entered several interscholastic contests during the year, in events ranging from original oratory to dramatic interpretation. They en- tered community speaking contests, such as the Soil Con- servation Contest. Various civic clubs and organizations were entertained by speech students. Something new this year in the speech department was the informal initiation of pledges into Thespians. Each pledge was assigned a “master.” He was then taken to downtown Altus and required to beg fifty pennies from strangers. A formal initiation was held in December. In the spring, members of NFL and Thespians had a joint banquet at which the outstanding Thespian awards were presented to the students.

Altus Chapter of Future Journalists of America was first in the nation, although the organization now is international and in many states. Officers of the state association are elected at the fall meeting of the Oklahoma Interscholastic Press association at the University of Okla- homa at Norman. Altus alpha chapter has two officers this year. State president is Eugena Cagle, senior, editor of the Bulldog, pictured on Page 100 and Charlotte Babione, junior, second state vice presi- dent. In order to be a member of F.J.A. students must be active in journalism and student publications. F.J.A. members publish The Collar, the student newspaper and The Bulldog yearbook annually.

Two were three-year members; four were two- year members; and eight were first year members. EARLY September was a time of learning for new staff members Linda Snell, Jim Byrd, and Benny Byrd. Editor Eugena Cagle briefs them on the kinds of type to be used in Bulldog '66. Junior Sally Henry begins draft of senior biographies. YEARBOOK Long hours of planning, working produce Bulldog ’66 Altus Bulldog yearbook is a consistent winner of superior ratings in both state and national competition. Part of the reason for the Bulldog’s excellent quality is the apprentice system of training its staff members. New members arc added yearly from all three grades. Those who begin as sophomores have the best background by the time they arc seniors. Another important part of training for seniors is the attendance of a journalism short course at the Uni- versity of Oklahoma. At the first session of the course in the summer of 1965 Linda Southern was named outstand- STAFFERS WORK frantically when deadlines approach. Linda Southern searches through the picture file while Sally Henry, Louanna Law, Sandy Smith, and Linda Snell design layouts, INDEXING for the Bulldog is a long and tedious job.

Founded as a part of the Economic Opportunity Act, NYC has as its purpose provision of job opportunities for students who arc in school, or who return to school, and are at least 16 years of age. Through the NYC many are able to continue in school. Others learn skills which will enable them to get jobs after graduation, or to qualify for jobs that will help them continue higher education. Altus NYC was approved for job assignments as office aides, library aides, nurses’ aides, laboratory assistants, cus- todian s assistants, landscape and carpentry workers, main- tenance and repair aides. Authorized for assignment any- where within the school system, or for any non-profit es- tablishment, the Altus NYC students worked at all schools in the system. Many were teachers’ aides, others helped with maintenance, or operated audio visual equipment, or worked as food service assistants. Others worked at Jack- son County Memorial hospital as nurses’ aides in the con- valescent wing for senior citizens. Laboraton' assistants worked with hospital technicians, some were stock room clerks. Five worked throughout the period at the Board of Education building, publishing directories, filing data, photostating or duplicating records. NURSES AIDE Patty Wilson arranges the pillow of a bed-fast patient at Jackson County Memorial Hospital’s convalescent wing so that the Patient may see her visitors better. This was a part of the after-school work for NYC nurses' aides, who also read to patients, wrote letters for them, and helped with trays. Front row. Margaret Everett, Juanita Everett, Barbara Smith.

This was especially true of National Youth Corps, des- ignated by the President of the United States as a major facet of the program for giv- ing teenagers full opportu- nity. Officers of the Altus NYC worked together to help corpsmcn become bet- ter acquainted with one an- other, and to plan projects for mutual benefit to mem- bers and the community.

Vocational agriculture provides both terminal and college preparatory' training for those who take advantage of its opportunities. Classroom and laboratory facilities in the vocational agriculture provide the latest equipment for instruction and research. Both crop and livestock projects are continued throughout the year with summer as busy a time for participants as the actual school year. Because the department has its own farm, both city and rural boys are able to take agriculture here. Agricultural science opens job categories in more than 300 fields, and former Altus agriculture students hold positions throughout the world with government, business, and industry. This year a new course, agri-business, was added. Stu- FRUITS of long summer hours and after school fall labor is this ten-acre cotton crop grown by Larry Robbins, right.

This has been a particularly successful year for Altus Future Farmers, beginning with place awards at the Oklahoma State Fair. Recognized as one of the region’s outstanding agricul- ture departments. Altus was chosen as one of the five high schools in the western United States to be visited by students from farmlands in Asia, Africa, and Europe.

As the Bulldog organi- zation section went to press these courses, three hours in length daily, had already started. Students are given opportunity to learn the technical skills neces- sary for good jobs immediately after graduation. For others, who plan to continue education beyond high school, the course offers equal advantages in provid- ing knowledge necessary for technical or scientific training in construction and architecture. Mr. Robert Killebrew is the vocational carpentry instructor, and Mr. Richard Friesen is the other shop teacher. Al- though carpentry is a vocational course, students who wish to have more limited shop experience may en- roll in the one-hour a day regular class periods.

GIRL SCOUTS Senior Scouts have year of outdoor fun and traveling Altus Senior High’s Girl Scout troop toured the na- tion last summer through its representatives. Dorsay Maffry participated in the National Girl Scout Roundup in Idaho, taking with her mementoes from this area, and returning with souvenirs from all 50 states. Audrev Lange and Susan LeMasters were mem- bers of the Girl Scout Caravan, an alternate summer excursion to the Roundup. An educational tour, the AHS students chose the trip which toured seven western states and portions of southwest Canada. Senior Girl Scouting is the culmination in Altus of a program in which more than 600 voungcr girls arc enrolled. Senior Scouts not only help with the work of the i unior and elementary school troop proj- ects, but also participate in a wide variety of com- munity and state service programs.

BIOLOGY CLUB Students interested in progressive study of life phases Biology clubs of Mr. Buel Garvin and Mr. Don Jones decided to combine in their projects for the first time this year. One of their activities was a field trip to Devil’s Canyon north of Altus. The purpose of the expedition was to collect different types of small plants and insects for laboratory use. The groups performed experiments for which there was no class time. They saw several films corresponding to the regular study during the school day. Ex- perts, on both state and local levels, were engaged to speak to the clubs on subjects ranging from cancer to alcoholism and narcotic addiction. For the spring semester, members planned a second field trip to Devil’s Canyon and one to the Oklahoma Science Symposium in Oklahoma City. The program committee for Mr. Garvin's Biology Club was Vickie Yee, Steve ay Powell, Dell Ray Thomas and Jack Lee who planned year s activities. Elected as officers for Mr. Garvin s Biol- ogy Club are Sandy Smith, secretary- treasurer and Sandra Andrews, president.FDPA Students create computer programming group AHS is the first high school in Oklahoma and one of the few in the U. S. to have a computer on campus. Therefore the many interested students have formed the first known computer club named the Future Data Proc- essors of America Club. The forty members of the Alpha Chapter of FDPA have heard speeches bv com- puter owners, operators, and technicians and have made field trips to see computers in Southwest Oklahoma.

Physical fitness brings with it mental alertness as well as a healthier attitude toward life in general. This energy of the student body at Altus High is reflected through its outstanding athletic program. Last spring the Bulldog baseball team won state; this fall Bulldogs won runner-up state championship in AA football. Basketball and golf had exceptionally good seasons; track records were outstanding. In December a new sport was added. Competitive wrest- ling returned as a part of the AHS curriculum.

The soph- omores came uo from Junior High with two good records and continued to uphold their records in high school. Although they had a less-than-pcrfcct season, coaches say they are very good prospects for full-fledged Bulldogs. Classroom scenes, such as the one below, and daily workouts poved of great value. This fact showed up in actual games. Outstanding games were with Lawton Cen- tral B and the Waurika Varsity. Dawgs won both games, proving their fine training. Wayne Wilson scored 6 points at the El Reno-Bulldog game.

Students develop poise, co-ordination, fitness In keeping with the President’s physical fitness program, students not taking such subjects as band, vocal music or competitive athletics which necessitate physical exertion, enroll in one of the Physical Education classes at Altus High School. Girls participate in such activities as basket- ball, volleyball, tumbling and trampoline. Calisthenics are a part of their daily routine. They are given a strenuous test to determine physical stamina and ability. To add to their poise, coordination and grace, students spend a period of approximately six weeks learn- ing the fine art of traditional folk dances such as the polka, waltz and the western square dances. During the warmer months girls are given special in- struction in tennis, one of the “earn over" sports which can be followed throughout a lifetime. They also are given special training as recreational leaders. As a result many are able to gain positions as camp counselors while in col- lege or help sponsor youth recreational activities as adults. 10 LYNN GREENE pauses a moment before attempting a crucial shot during a physical education basketball game.

Exercises help high school boys build sturdy physique PAT CAMPBELL demonstrates a hand stand learned in P.E. “Tell everybody to enroll in the P.E. classes one former physical education student wrote Altus High friends. It s that training that made it possible for me to make the Marines in the first place, and to go through basic training without the difficulty many of the boys faced.” This is only one of manv such letters received from former stu- dents. Physical Education for boys at Altus High is designed to help build the muscle structure necessary for strong bodies as adults. Bovs usually make their biggest growth during high school years. With this in mind, exercises are planned for students whose long bones arc growing, and whose muscle structure changes almost daily . Boys lift weights, do calisthenics, plav basketball, medicine ball, vollevball. and other sports that help develop coordi- nation and team spirit. Physical fitness carries over into physical and mental alertness, in the opinion of school officials. That s why boys arc required to take the course unless they arc enrolled in some other activitv which promotes physical fitness. 127BLLLDOGS FOR 1966 arc: Front row.

Basketball continues to be a popular sport, and Altus Bulldogs plaved two nights or more even' week of the season. Such a schedule, which included eight home games, requires constant practice and a tight schedule of workouts while earn ing a full load of school work. Pro- vided the facilities of the Cletus Street Field House, Bull- dog Basketball teams have as many as six practice goals available for between game sessions and workouts. 128SEASON SCOREBOARD Bulldogs Opponent 58 Quanah 69 36 Lawton Eisenhower 58 36 Hobart 58 49 Hollis 56 56 Elk City 70 43 Anadarko 61 55 Frederick 43 48 Cl in ton 52 43 Anadarko 61 39 Lawton Eisenhower 48 63 Mangum 57 59 Hobart 39 35 Frederick 34 56 Mangum 70 43 Elk City 44 71 Hollis 66 68 Elk City 45 Frederick Clinton Anadarko Regional Tournament BULLDOGS lake advantage of pre-game time to get in some last-minute practice as the anxious fans file into the gymnasium DAWGS for 1966 are: Front Row.

This ideal is fostered by the attitudes of parents, school and community, but in the final analysis it is the student himself who fulfills his ideal through constant, driving work. Reward for such labor is recognition by his family, the city and classmates. Activities of more than seven hundred students form the personality of Altus High School.

Those who arc office aides often arc the first persons newcomers sec as they arrive at the building. For hundreds of others, they are the voice of the high school as they answer the phone. Receptionists in the office of the principal, and that of the guidance counselor, earn' a tremendous public relations responsibility. Accept- ance for any student assistant’s role, however, is an honor and a responsibility. Laboratory assistants handle equip- ment valued at many thousands.They help students com- plete experiments that require care and guidance. In the process they often learn more than they did when they were a member of the class. Laboratory assistants are chosen on the basis of outstanding performance as students and complete dependability. Although instructors often name some that they feel will fill the role of a student assistant, many students willingly volunteer their services, most often in a field which interests them. There has never been a shortage of qualified people to fill the vacated spaces.

Active Thespians did all their own make-up for “Quiet Summer” and assisted aspirants in applying theirs. After the play nineteen people were found to be qualified for the organization. They were formally initiated along with twenty others who had earned membership at a banquet in December, making a total of forty-nine members. Sally Reagan, shown at right was one of the eleven active members who earned stars for outstanding performances in the play. SALLY REAGAN, a senior speech student, prepares her make- up before going on stage in her zany role in ”Quiet Summer■" LEE WEEMS is startled by Melanie Windie’s "Come to me, mad lover.” Melanie is just one of the one-hundred-twelve girls Sonny discovered at nearby Camp Tuckahee. Quiet Summer” is the plight of a bachelor uncle suddenly faced with entertaining a teen-aged niece and nephew for the summer. Hilarity is the result as Sonny and Pam, played by Lee Weems and Jancy Walker, decide to help their uncle James, Mike Dobbs, to win the country club election. James subsequently loses the election, loses his girl friend, loses his maid; wins the election, gets his girl back, and regains his maid. In the midst of James’ affairs, Pam becomes engaged and Sonny is chased by one-hun- dred-twelve different girls.

HONORS AHS students add new laurels to high school history Honors come in many wavs to Altus Senior High students and the 1965-66 vear began with even more than the usual number. Awards on these pages came before the end of the first term. Other honors will be announced in the Bulldog summer supplement. For the Bulldog itself the year also was bringing its share of honors, including first place, with distinction. Because Altus High School has many facets, honors also come to a wide cross section of the student body. Ranking among the top schools of the state scholasticallv, Altus students continue bringing laurels home from the colleges and universities they later attend. It s all a part of being in a community where achievement matters.

At the end of the first semester students arc given an opportunity to choose the person in their class who arc outstanding in many facets of school and community life. Upper class members of the yearbook staff conduct this election, count the ballots, and then ar- range to get pictures of the winners without the students knowing the outcome of the voting. Winners of these con- tests are not revealed until the yearbooks containing pic- tures of these favorites arc distributed at the end of the year at yearbook assembly. From a class of two hundred and fifty seniors, seven boys and seven girls were selected as the students who best exemplified special attributes. BEST CITIZENS of the senior class, Bob Darwin and Ann Win- sett, were chosen for their citizenship and thoughtfulness in the classroom and in the community during their highschool careers. SELECTED most likely to succeed are foe Mason and Linda Southern, both top scholars and in the top per cent of the seniors. MOST TALENTED seniors, Eugena Cagle and Larry Calkms. are recognized for outstanding talent in the fields of vocal and instrumental music, creative writing, drama and art.BEST ALL ROUND seniors are Tom Henderson and Melanie Windle. Both are good students and good citizens with a wide interest m all facets of school life, church and community.

MOST POPULAR juniors are Johnny Hawkins and Sandy Smith, whose willingness to work and ability to get along with people make them student leaders in all school life phases. 144 FAVORITES AHS junior class selects representative classmates Junior year is one of hard work. Course levels arc advanced. Activities reach their peak because it is the lot of the jun- iors to entertain seniors, faculty and administrative officials at the graduation banquet. Class members also frequently head academic and co-curricular clubs as program chairmen or president. Juniors know one another well, and class favorites, as a result, are chosen upon the basis of tangibles. Second year students on these pages are those whom their peers considered to be most nearly a reflection of the traits for which they are honored.FAVORITES Sophomore personalities are awarded honors Exceptional leadership must be shown at the sophomore level as tenth graders converge at Altus High from three junior high schools within the city, and as many as 50 other schools throughout the world. To be chosen a "Soph- omore Favorite” therefore carries with it an extra divi- dend of approval for those who arc chosen by their class- mates. As in the upper classmen elections, sophomores vote by home rooms, written ballots, and without previous campaigning on the part of students who are chosen. BEST ALL ROUND sophomores, Debbie Stephens and Dell Ray Thomas, are honor students and leaders who are willing to devote their time to many student activities. MOST POPULAR sophomores are Linda Snell and Buddy Mims, who were selected for their friendliness and their participa- tion in many facets of student life. BEST APPEARANCE is the title given to sophomores Tannah Howard and Mike Farles. left, for their neat, representative ap- pearance and their likable personalities. 145FFA Queen Margaret Howard Class of 1966 Miss Margaret Howard was chosen this year to reign as Sweetheart of the Altus FFA Chapter.

Attendants 153 Sheryl Runividgc Jama SmithLIGHTS OF AHS are reflected on icy streets and falling snow in a view of the main building seldom seen by students. Final bell of the school day rarely means the end of activity in the buildings of Altus Senior High School. Club meetings are scheduled almost every evening. Sports events such as basketball games and wrestling matches are are held in the Clctus B. Street Field House. Nighttime rehearsals for assemblies and special programs are in the auditorium and music building. Oklahoma’s finest new cafeteria building provides room for special banquets. Variety in AHS s night life reflects the many activities available to every student, through the efforts of an in- terested faculty, and administration working for a better educational system each year, keyed co the present needs. Growth of Altus Senior High School is mirrored in its new courses and scholastic and athletic organizations. Ad- dition of computer-related mathematics in 1966 with vo- cational carpentry and auto-mechanics courses, wrestling as a competitive sport, organization of Future Data Pro- cessor of America, Future Business Leaders of America and one of the first in-school Neighborhood Youth Corps make the year memorable. Now plans arc complete for computer tele-processing by hotline from Oklahoma. Such new courses and organizations arc made possible by federal education grants, focal support and interest on the part of the student body. Students can look foreward to a school of epanding horizons as reflected by the 1966 Bulldog. THE END 154Index ABERNATHY. Frances 69. 84. 90. 113. 117. 139 ABOUSSIE. Sam 32. 99 ADAMS.
