Index 180CHANGE PERIOD Movement characterizes life during 1 967-68 Bulldog school year Change was the keynote of 1967-68. Students were welcomed to the scholastic year by a new principal, 55-minute class periods, and no homeroom. Other innovations included a new type grade report, formation of a student council, and addition of a vocational course for girls in commercial sewing. Change manifested itself in more than these tangibles — there were opportunities for making friendships, expressing new ideas, and pursuing particular goals. Each student, in his own manner, anticipated the novelty of the new year in light of personal expectations.New principal initiates changes CHRISTY WRIGHT, Mary Brewer, and Barbara Ferrei' file new NCR grade report forms for Mr. Jerry Doyle, principal, and Mr. Bill Starr, attendance director.

Pep Club, cheerleaders, twirlers, and the many fans that lined the bleachers at Hightower Memorial stadium for football games.( 7ulldog desire to excel and progress in all fields was outwardly and obviously shown in the spirit with which the high school backed its sports teams throughout the year. Equally enthusiastic backing was given to the less obvious awards won by Altus students at district, state, and national academic levels.STUDENT LIFE Philanthropy, STUDENT LIFE at AHS consists of studies and co-curricular activities, but Fredericka Williams finds time to relax in her own way for a few moments.

BAND STUDENTS usually ride to school. Then they walk from one to three miles each morning as they practice precision drills. It all adds up to first place awards and good shows for game and parade spectators. 12MIHI TRANSPORTATION Big 100-square mile district entails daily travel for students By bus, car, share-ride, motor bike, scooters, motorcycles, bicycles, and shoe leather the students of Altus High come to school. Parking facilities are enlarged constantly to take care of new additions to the district which in turn means additional parking required. Con- trary to magazine articles many students walk by preference, mak- ing their mile or more “constitutional" both for physical fitness and companionship with others who join them on the way. Students who live in Altus Air Force Base housing come by express bus directly to the high school. Others are picked up at their homes in the northeast part of the county as far as 35 miles distant. EAST ELM STREET ends at the front entrance of Altus High. Bulldog Photograper Editor Fred Logsdon caught this student's hurried arrival against the backdrop of the season's coldest weather. 13ELECTRONIC AGE Machines are tamed by Altus students in twenty-first century LEADING NATIONALLY in computer instruction.

RECENTLY built cafeteria adds modern ap- pearance to campus structures and served as a meeting place for school and community activities. ANNUAL PARTICIPATION in the Christmas parade was carried on this year but many club floats were graced with the faces of their new queens. 16 MINUTES BEFORE the morning bells ring provide conversation time for students who gather outside the main building. BULLDOG LANE, long a favorite path for Big Blue fans, is a well used passageway for afternoon exits.dedication School progress living memorial for Mr. Walter Marshall Influence of a teacher, it is said, lives on until eternity. Mr. Walter Marshall never taught a public school class, but by his deeds he taught lessons which can be learned only by examples. These, too, live on. At the time of his death last August, Mr. Marshall was serving his sixth year as president of the Altus Board of Education and his fifteenth as a board member. Probably no position is as thankless, as time consuming and as influential. Board members receive no pay, except that intangible, non-monetary recompense which prompted Mr. Marshall to work tirelessly for the betterment of educational apportunity for all young people. Mr. Marshall's name will be known to generations of school boys and girls as they read it on the cornerstones of buildings on this and the other campuses of Altus schools, and as they watch teams perform at Marshall Field. For those of us who had the good fortune to know him as a person he is remembered as a friend and the father of Ted Mar- shall, our schoolmate. Altus Bulldog staff members have still another memory. We knew Mr. Marshall as a publications fan, who enjoyed the year- book so much he wanted his copy each spring as soon as it arrived, and promptly read it from cover to cover. In grateful appreciation we dedicate the 1968 Bulldog as a memorial to Mr. Walter Marshall. MR. WAITER MARSHALL as president of Altus Board of Education COMPUTER LABORATORY approval was one of the high points of Mr. Walter Marshall's tenure as president of the Altus Board of Education. He reads the docu- ment held by Mr. Clifford Peterson, Super- intendent of Schools. With him are other board members, Mr. Eugene Bryce, Mr. Hatton McMahan, Mr. Jack Colville and Mr. Joe Buck.FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION Ever-expanding interest and knowledge of administration members are developed through service to school, community, and state. Faculty guidance aids students in academic achievement and development of responsibility.BOARD OF EDUCATION - ADMINISTRATION Educational leaders set high goals for school progress Five dedicated men who serve Altus Schools without finan- cial remuneration make up the Board of Education. All are college educated, all work closely with head administrator, Supt. Clifford Peterson, in planning five, even fifteen years ahead for major advancements in educational opportunities. Leadership of Altus schools in numerous local, state and federal programs can be attributed to the foresight of this group, state educators believe. Altus Schools frequently are featured in regional and national publications. DEPARTMENTAL REPORTS are given careful consideration by Supt. Clifford Peterson, but he prefers first hand information. He particularly enjoys visits to Altus High and can call many students by name. An officer in top level state groups, he also is on regional five-state research board. FINANCIAL DETAILS of the two million plus operation of Altus Schools are analized by Board President Hatton McMahan, AHS graduate and bank president. 20APPROVAL OF AHS application for additional vocational programs gets enthusiastic response from Board of Education members Mr. Joe Buck, Mr. Hatton McMahan, president; Mr. Eugene Bryce, vice president; and (standing) Dr. C.

Mr. Jerry Doyle, new principal, introduced record files for student grades and personally sponsored the first student government at AHS in many years. PRIVATE conferences without interruptions were made possible in the new location of the principal's office. Mr. Jerry Doyle waits for his next appointment.

Davis, counselor. 23BUSINESS EDUCATION Clerical skills improve job opportunity, home work grades AHS business education department serves a three-fold purpose for its students. Some learn skills for future employment in civil service, industry, business and education. Others are able to earn their way while attending college, and still others use their training for such per- sonal needs as academic assignments, and busi- ness letters. Those enrolled in beginning computer pro- gramming gain immediate benefits in space age college courses and in industrial vocations.

There was a new principal, additional senior courses, new students arriving al- most every week, and an all-new Student Council. ACT, SAT, and Advanced Standing tests, Parent's Confidential form for scholarship applications, col- lege catalogues, admission forms, Kuder vocational tests . . . college . . . jobs . . . military obligations . . . senior gift to the school . . . invitation lists . . . big proms and little parties ... all had a part leading to the day when gray academic robes are donned and the illusive scrap of paper materializes as the long sought diploma. NO SCREAMS or cries were heard in the corridors of AHS as the mass diphtheria innoculations were given. Gaylon Jackson's disdainful stare showed the aplomb of seniors during the crisis. DURING SENIORS first class meeting when officers and council representatives were elected the scene was preserved on film by staff photographer, Fred Logsdon. 42BILL ALLEN COY ALLEN HAROLD ANDREAS SANDRA ANDREWS KATHLEEN APPLEBY FREDDIE ARRADONDO JANE BALL KATHY ATCHISON BILL AUSTIN KENNETH AVERY JOE BOB BAREFOOT RALPH BARKER JACKIE BARNES BRENDA BAKER JERRY BARNETT ■ 43CLASS OF 1968 Regular participation in exhibition marching marked year for band RESERVED SEATS were always available for senior Altus Band members for the band played and marched at every football game.

Success in competitive sports marked 1967-68 school year. Bulldogs, Lassies, and Dawgs, whether winning or losing, put on good shows and provided spectators with exciting entertainment.ENTHUSIASM AND LOYALTY make up for numbers attending Altus High's newest sport, wrestling.

Re-established three years ago as an inter-school sport at Altus High School, wrestling has at- tracted students from all grade levels, and all sizes. "It's a sport where each player is matched against some-one of like size ' Coach David Brown said. "As a result every member of the team has an opportunity to evidence his own initiative and ability. Probably no sport gives greater preparation for personal problems of the future than the ancient sport of wrestling." Coach Brown became head wrestling coach at mid-term after two years as assistant coach. Seniors Joe Bob Barefoot, Wayne Wilson, and Larry Hurst made the state meet playoffs at Hobart.

SUGGESTIONS MADE by members are listened to and carefully considered by Mr. Jerry Doyle. 135PERSONALITIES Vivacity? Exuberance? Active Participation?

A NEW ARRIVAL, Senior Carolyn Snow, along with classmate Ruthie Hayes attended the annual Soph.-Sr. Tea. They were served by Karen Willis, Suzanne Thrush, and Pati Booker. New faces are added to the general hall scurry each year. In a relatively short time, these new faces become accustomed to Altus High and make the necessary adjust- ments. They fit in so well with the rest of the student body that in a few weeks a new arrival is no longer "new" but can be considered a full-fleged Bulldog. For this reason Bulldog yearbook staff members publish this page each year to assure that every student is represented.

A CLUB Letter athletes have active organization for all sports All competitive sports are included in A Club membership. Requirement for membership is that the boy or girl letter in at least one sport. Sports included are football, boys' basketball, girls' basketball, track, wrestling, baseball and golf.
