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

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

enthusiastic backing was
given to the less obvious

students at district, state, and
national academic levels.STUDENT LIFE

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.

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

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.

plus operation of Altus Schools are

in these fields often secure scholarships while participating as
university or college entertainers. Advanced art is in only its

Languages gain importance
for industry, government
Study of language is more than merely prepar-
ing for college admission in today's jet age. All
students need facility in at least one additional
language for travel, for job openings that may
be at any portion of the globe. Altus schools
offer immediate opportunities for advanced stu-
dents. Some work as translators, others are lab-
oratory aides, and assistants in the school's ex-
tensive migrant education program working with
those for whom Spanish is a first language.
Bilingual students add valuable knowledge to
language club meetings.

AHS has been enlarged to make possible new
vital subjects. An additional course in psychol-
ogy was offered second semester. Because of
social studies places in the news are not just

Re-established three years ago as an inter-school
sport at Altus High School, wrestling has at-

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.

District championship sends
Bulldogs to state
Football has always been a vital part of every
Bulldog and Bulldog fan, and this year it was
doubly true. After a long summer of getting and
keeping in shape, the team proved it was all
worthwhile. With a tough 1-AA Conference
schedule, the team ended with a 6-2-2 season.
Bulldog spirit rose highest during the Vernon
and El Reno games. The Vernon Lions hadn't
lost a game with Altus in years, but the Bulldogs
went for blood and won 35-6. They won the
1-AA Conference in a 6-6 tie with El Reno. The
year also had its honors. Tom Carraway was
named Class AA Back of the Year, and Mark
Box was named All State End.

Classical language lives on
for Altus scholars
Medical and other professional careers, particu-
larly science and law require use of Latin. In
this jet age in which students may visit the great
libraries of the world for original research, many
of the classics are in Latin. Microfilms already
are becoming important parts of library facilities.
Many of the ancient documents in Latin have
been filmed. Latin club membership is not con-
fined to serious scholars. Activities include an-
nual sale of plebes, Christmas caroling and
Saturnalia observance. !n the spring the Ides of
March initiation banquet and attendance at the
State Classical League meeting are high points.

Every well bred young son and daughter knows by heart the
words, "Father knows best." But when Henry Jamison puts
his foot down and demands that Clara follow a schedule
worked out by an efficiency expert, Ludwig Hinkledorf, the
uproar begins. Within a matter of days every member of the
family has been faced with a traumatic personal catastrophe.
The household changes from a simply confused home where
boots and messages are misplaced to a shambles where cos-
tumes go unmade, engagements are broken, juvenile officers
visit the home, and witch doctors run wild. It's only natural
that the family begin to wonder, "Does Father Know Best?"
WITH DANCE PRACTICE in the living room and a group of jam session musicians on their
way upstairs, the Jamison household fell into the usual shambles.
BENNY BYRD AND BONNIE O'MALLEY clashed over the master plan
in their roles as Lubby and Stubby.
BENNY BYRD dealt not only with the usual problems of an
upset home but also an incensed Cynthia, played by
Martha Hallock.“Does Father Know Best”
CRUSADING Grandma Kutzman, Carol Chapman, and Nurse Johnson,

to launch campaigns for the temperance of Man.

Agriculture serious business
for vocational students
Agriculture students find that FFA membership
involves investments of both time and money.
After school hours of hard work are required
for a proper farming program. For instance,
students work 12 months raising their prize
animals for the Fat Stock Show in March. Others
sow wheat in September, harvesting it in June.
Prize cotton and feeds are planted in the spring
and harvested months later. This requires re-
sponsibility and individual effort.

Bulldogs on to victory.
Half a hundred pretty little girls, in short, navy skirts,
white socks, saddle oxfords, and white sweaters,
cheered the teams on to victories this year. Pep club
is made up of girls from all three classes who have
an abundance of school spirit and channel it through
the approved passages of yelling and jumping. Girls
turned out to line the field at all football games and
form a runway for the players as they cheered them
on at the beginning of each home game.

Junior year is one of increasing responsibilities,
and often is the period in which heaviest sched-
ule of highschool is carried. Sophomore mistakes
academically must be erased, college or tech
school entrance equipments must be well un-
derway. At the same time juniors hold major
offices in school organizations, participate in a
wide cross section of extra curricular events.
Achieving top awards, therefore, requires con-
centated continued effort.

Late enrollees assimilated into school groups, activities
TEN NEW FACES in the Senior and Junior classes were: Joe Billman, Rohner, Jeannette Amen, Shannon Smith, Vicki Skillman, and Gregory
Debbie Myers, Linda Linne, David Stanfield, Sandi Goldston, John Brown.
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.
