fullest. Bright sunlight from the South imprints long Winter shadows at
day's end. Venerable Main Building rests briefly before night classes
begin. Of such moments are memories made. Pages which follow record
other such brief instants, when and as they occurred. This is the 1970

Enrollment by computer, vocational courses,
computer programming, college level science,
mathematics, new communications, and respon-
sible student leadership characterized the first
year of the space oriented seventies at Altus
High. With chemurgy on the farm, and C-5A's
in the air, need for more and more education
became graphically apparent to each student.
WHEN MAIN building of the 58-acre Altus High School campus was built
four decades ago, this was the city limits. They now extend three miles
beyond, but Elm Street still deadends at Altus High's entrance.ENROLLMENT line ends each

2YEAR ROUND SCHOOL
Summer session offers extra
credit opportunities, transfer
“catch up” aids
This was the year new students arrived too late for
the spring session, but in time for summer classes.
They joined long time Altus students in getting
extra classes to leave time for activity hours dur-
ing the winter, or part-time work later. Most in-
coming sophomore boys, too young for employ-
ment, take driver education, science or history
during their first senior high summer.
PROJECT WICHITA FALLS, they called the final highway driving
test for these summer driver ed students. Each morning
for two weeks groups left at 7 a.m., DST, to make a round trip
drive to Wichita Falls, Texas. Mr. Art Young, left,
gives final instructions.
EARLY FALL formal fashions are worn by Pat Orr
and member, Carol Weaver. Each designed her
outfit for the Future Homemakers sub-district September
meeting. RIGHT BELOW: SUMMER BIOLOGY classes meet
continuously all morning making it possible for complicated
experiments to be completed in a single day. Mack McKeaver
assembles equipment for one such project.
Cooperation, school pride
new decade ingredients
What is citizenship in the changing times of the
seventies. For many it may be expressed rather
than spoken in deeds of mutual assistance, ren-
dered without desire for recognition. It may be
concerned with the trivial or the momentous. Un-
abashed school pride, unselfish work together
characterized citizenship '70. As graphically shown
by the two pictures on this page, the gesture may
be spectacular, or merely a daily "he also serves"
momento of loyalty.
BECAUSE THE turret flag pole it above his
classroom, Mr. Anton Edmonson exemplifies the
loyalty he teaches in history classes by
arriving an hour early each day to hoist the
victory flag whenever a victory has been won.

Melting pot for the nation and world? Strangers
might so describe Altus High. Stop any three
students in a corridor between classes and you
might find one who was in high school in Tur-
key last year, another who had ridden a bus 35
miles from his rural home where his father and
grandfather, all college graduates, had lived for
50 years, and another who recently acquired
facility in English, retaining at the same time
skill in Spanish and winning awards for his
school in bilingual competition. Typical student?
Each is in his own way.

English before college enrollment.

Lawmakers, national groups, honor junior, senior students
Recognition of groups outside the academic com-
munity is earned by numerous AHS students each
year. Typical of such awards are those pictured
here, and elsewhere in this section. Missing pic-
torially is Kim Hughes, congressional page in
Washington, D.C. Ex-member of Class of 70, he
will be graduated from the Pages School in June.
Altus students and teachers consistently are
listed in major biographical indexes. Former grad-
uates often dominate similar recognition lists on

Students receive national, state, regional awards, acclaim
Last year Altus High School students received
three top awards in national contests. Although
the year's awards will not be complete until the
end of school, new honors already have been
First of these each term are the Boys and Girl
State winners, and special honors at Summer Band
Camp and Yearbook Workshop. In order to include
them, Altus Bulldog lists early honors in the
opening section, additional honors in the later
portion of the yearbook and final honors of the
year in the summer supplement.

School interests, activities encourage each doing his thing
Volunteers, book worms, actors, scholars, musi-
cians, each finds a niche at Altus High although the
process may require a few weeks or even months
for the newest arrivals.
For some there is a constant series of awards,
for others they may prefer the role of group par-
ticipant or assistant. Each has a place.

BEAUTIFUL ALTUS Junior College Library, adjoining AJC and AHS campuses provides first college
experiences for Altus Seniors. Approximately one out of every two college bound AHS graduates attends
AJC for part of college work. Library building, completed in 1969, is considered one of the
region's most beautiful architectural examples. It was designed by AHS grad Joe Milton of the W. A.
Appleby, Jr. firm, who also designed the cafeteria.
First football field length plane makes Bulldogland home
Altus Bulldog and Collar newspaper representa-
tives were invited to the press briefing and arrival
ceremonies December 17 at Altus Air Force Base
for the C-5A, world's largest plane only four feet
shorter than a football field. With a tail three
times the height of the AHS entrance towers, it
now is seen often from classroom windows.
Because numbers were limited only those plan-
ning to major in a field of Journalism could be

School supervisory staff plans future high school expansion
During the decade of the sixties education at the
high school level made such rapid changes Altus
Board of Education, and School Superintendent
Clifford Peterson made some major decision con-
cerning new subjects, new curriculum, or new
buildings at every meeting. Even greater changes
are expected in the era ahead.
Milestones in the changing world of education
for NOW and the future include the data process-
ing department with "hands on" computer and
key punch machines, vocational courses, college
level math, science, English, art and a wide variety

and former AHS principal, with advanced degrees
from OU and Southern California serves on many
state and regional boards, including educational
NEWLY appointed to the posts of Assistant Superintendents, Mr. Bailey Snow and Mr. Jerry Doyle

SPOKESMAN for the school system before many groups,
Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent of schools, keeps in
close touch with high school events, rarely missing
an assembly or program.DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS, these school board members serve without pay because they are interested
in continuing educational opportunities for Altus students. All are college men, with intense interest in
young people. Mr. Hatton McMahan, left, is president. Others are Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent
of schools, Mr. Jack Colville, Mr. Joe Buck, Dr. C. G. Russell, members and Mr. Eugene Bryce,
PRESIDING at graduation ceremonies for both high school and Altus
Junior College is what Mr. Peterson characterizes as one of
his "most pleasant duties."
SMILING and efficient, Mrs. Walter Cross, school board clerk and
financial secretary of the school district, can answer almost any financial
question without referring to a record. Auditors call her
accounting system a model for the state.
Principal’s offices academic, athletic, activity focal point
"Ask Mr. Starr, he'll probaby be able to do some-
thing about it," is a familiar philosophy with both
students and faculty at Altus High. New in the
position as principal, Mr. Bill Starr brings years of
experience to the office from former assignments
as attendance and athletic director and classroom
BELOW: If it's important, Mr. Starr will announce it second or fifth hour.
Messages for a few students are delivered without disturbing
all classes. AT RIGHT: Mr. Starr as AHS faculty head conducts monthly
meetings and additional ones as needed. Atmosphere is informal,
but efficient. Everything is planned.
ATTENDANCE DIRECTOR for 1000 students is a major assignment,
but Mr. Arthur Young still can call a major portion of the
student body by name.
LIASON between all sports programs, and physical fitness classes,
Mr. Bob Wenk, athletic director for the schools, must plan
schedules a year, even two years in advance.
22MR. W. C. DAVIS has both M.A. and M.S. degrees from the
University of Oklahoma, is junior counselor, and adult
education director for Southwestern Oklahoma.
MRS. ERSA KIKER is a graduate of Graves-Bamhart Business
College, Madison, Wisconsin. As secretary to the principal
she keeps attendance records, supplies transcripts, answers
innumerable questions daily.
MR. ADRAIN RANKIN holds an M.A. and guidance certif-
icate from Oklahoma State University. He counsels soph-
omores and seniors, administers testing program.
MRS. BUD SPRUIELL attended Southwest Teachers' College,

programs, assists students in securing needed information.
MRS. BOB WENK attended the University of New Mexico
and came to the high school staff as a teacher's aide for
the first time this year. She is cashier for the cafeteria dur-
ing the three lunch periods.
If it were a military base it would be the command
post, if it were a huge corporation it would be the
executive suite, but it is neither of these . . . it's
Altus High School, and the administrative per-
sonnel are executives, but they also are friends,
counselors and advisors.
For students, arrival at Altus High begins at the
pincipal's and guidance counselor's office, and they
immediately sense the "we do care" attitude.
Student volunteers take them from class to class,
introduce them to instructors. For seniors, constant
checking and re-checking of records, and early
remedial scheduling, helps avoid last minute heart-
breaks. It is an office dedicated to student service.

tion, as pupils worked hard at afternoon and night
sessions. Climax of fine arts year was combination
of all students' talent in edification of the all-school
production "My Fair Lady."
DISPLAYING ENTHUSIASM for the holidays is director of music,
Mr. Kenneth Cox. Tree was selected by Mr. Cox and decorated
by vocal music students.
PROUD OF THE AWARDS achieved by "That Altus Band," Mr. Larry
Harris prepares to place trophies in the band hall honor case.FOREIGN LANGUAGES
Students’ classroom conversations erase language barriers
Mandatory speaking of Spanish in Spanish Club,
French in French Club, and Latin in Latin Club
prepares students for use of foreign language in
outside world. Club ceremonies are performed
with all dialogues in the particular language of the
club. Question and answer periods during class
promote learning of responses to questions en-
countered in a normal day's activities. Continuous
class repetition of common phrases add to the
production of fluent speech.
MRS. DALE CULVER, M.Ed., attended OU and the University of
Grenoble, France. She teaches Latin and French and sponsors
these language clubs.
MRS. D. M. EWING, M.A., attended OU, UCLA, and Interamer-
ican University, Saltillo, Mexico. She teaches Spanish I and is
one of the Spanish Club sponsors.

SWSC. He teaches English II and Speech I.
MR. JOHN KNIGHT, B.A., graduated from SWSC. He teaches
English IV and English II and is a night class English teacher
Few realize the changes which occurred during
the decade of the sixties in methods of teaching
language arts. Today's typical class may hear or
see a famous actor reciting the classic which is
being studied, or observe speaking techniques on
closed circuit television instant replay. Journalism
students may write for newspaper, radio or ad-
vertising, or prepare a magazine article. Speech
students learn to speak more ably themselves in
working with elementary students as producers
and directors. Linguistics emphasizes the grammar
overlooked or ignored in earlier years.

Landings on moon, C5A arrival stimulate historical interest
Man's history making flights to the moon, and
arrival of the world's largest airplane, the C5A
Galaxy, to Altus Air Force Base served to enhance
history studies as up-to-date teachers kept students
informed on current events. Addition to the com-
munity of the Great Plains Museum increased

With the advent of the seventies, and over pop-
ulation, urban decay, social unrest and dissident
groups in the headlines, subjects such as psychol-
ogy, economics, sociology, history and govern-
ment take on new dimensions of importance.
So many students now elect to take psychology
and sociology it has been necessary to add addi-
tional teachers and sections in each field. With the
nearly 50 percent increase in student enrollment
additional sections also are necessary in world
history and American history. Films, field trips,
and source materials provide modern aids in the

special meetings. They work so well and quietly,
most students are only vaguely aware of the im-
portant functions they perform.
"CALL MR. Tidwell," is heard at buildings all over the city as custodians
and principals turn to the cheerful maintenance supervisor,
Alfred Tidwell who spends hours each day going from campus to

Careful selecting of class officers started the Junior
year on a businesslike basis, which was necessary
for a successful term in which thousands of dollars
were made. Besides being hosts to the Seniors
and their teachers for the banquet, this year was
also critical scholastically. Juniors participated in
PSAT, ACT, and Merit tests. When choosing
courses. Juniors must keep in mind the necessary
credits in order to graduate next year. Three hun-
dred thirty-five class members, forming one unit,
had attended more than thirty high schools from
five continents. With them came new ideas and
friendships. Our Junior class discovered a feeling
of willingness to work together in cooperation to
make it a successful year.

Matmen’s season personifies tenacity, loyalty, courage
Wrestling, newest sport at AHS, continued to grow
in popularity with spectators again this year, and
to achieve district and state rankings. Champions
in the tournament series included Gary Sheppard,
Sam Rice and Phil Bessett. At the regional Randy
Groves came out champion in his class, and soph-
omore, Bruce Babione, made it to the state con-
solation finals, his first year in senior high com-
petition. This is the year a full-fledged "B" team
emerged, capable of holding their own many after-
noons in practice with the Varsity, and bringing
home good records in inter-school "B" competi-
tion. "We're building," Coach Mark McCracken
said. "In time Altus High will be one of Oklahoma's
great wrestling schools." Coach David Brown is
assistant wrestling mentor.
TEAM CAPTAINS Wayne Ragsdale, Randy Groves, Phil Besett, Billy laRue,
and Sam Rice were leaders who inspired team when going was rough.

109THAT ALTUS BAND
Marching musicians win district honors, top state ratings
It was a long, but eventful season for That Altus
Band as it presented half-time shows at home and
away for every Bulldog Varsity Football game.
Its reputation for precision marching, outstanding
musicianship and original shows kept football
spectators in their seats during every half-time. As
host for the district marching contest, Altus Band
members kept records, announced entries, pro-
vided hospitality facilities, and took time out to
present a show of their own. Judges rated it
superior plus. More than 50,000 persons saw the
band shows and its parade marches at Christmas
in Altus and as honor visiting band at the South-
western State College Homecoming Parade and
half-time show. Spectacular formations are made
possible by marching practice which begins August
15 and continues daily from 3 a.m. until end of
first hour, plus an additional after school hour four
afternoons per week. All marching music is played

oil painting including portraits, charcoal and ink
designs and creative skills in mobiles, sculpture,
and mosiacs. Art club meetings are planned field
trips and outdoor sketching on and off campus.

Yearbook staff members begin as sophomores,
recommended by their junior highs. By the time
they are seniors the staff has acquired much exper-
ience in different fields concerning journalism and
photography. Printing and developing pictures are
only a few of the techniques learned. Many stu-
dents continue to work on yearbooks and news-
papers after they go to college. Some alumni
become professionals in publishing.
For the past 12 years Altus Bulldog has been a
consistent winner of top awards in major yearbook
competition. During that time it has been entered
in five different classifications as enrollment went
steadily upward. To continue to receive top ratings
staff members attempt to give the same coverage
of all major events, as they did when the high
school was one third its present size. When it
happens, a yearbook photographer is usually there.
LAYOUT DESIGN and printing pictures are skills learned by Junior staff
members, Linda Bryce, Katie Evans, Frances Skinner, and Tal Oden.

bureau for the school and community almost from
the first day of the fall term. Public appearance
often are correlated with those of vocal music.
Some of the most popular club programs have
included folk singers and monologists, or modern
dramatic cuttings with musical backgrounds. Enroll-
ment in speech under Mrs. Paul Flippin, who also is
the drama coach, exceeded the number of sections

For most students, heaviest schedule of their high
school days is at the junior year. This is the year
for advanced language, mathematics, chemistry,

not unusual, and almost every junior has at least
five plus an activity.

Among this group of honor sophomores are ap-
proximately a half-dozen former ninth grade
valedictorians, including those from Altus three
junior highs, and superior students from school
systems in widely separated areas of the world.
Whether their freshman year was in Alaska,
Alabama, Amsterdam or Altus, each had a com-
mon characteristic. This was the desire to learn,
and the motivation to work hard enough both in
class and outside, to accomplish the wish. Most of
them will be members of the Oklahoma honor
society, all have made a start on a college transcript
that will be viewed with appreciation by admis-
sions officers three years from now.

Universities award seniors
athletic, academic stipends
Scholarship announcements have just begun when
Altus Bulldog's final deadline for the main book
arrives. Additional scholarship announcements will
be in the Summer Supplement which most seniors
get by mail, and underclassmen receive when they
enroll the last week of August. Bulldog editors feel
the book is fortunate this year in that three major
scholarships were announced in time for this por-
tion of the book. All were of such wide interest
the honorees were given news and television
stories when the announcements were made by
the two state universities. Altus High's usual record
of scholarships is expected to be exceeded this
year with a senior class scholastic average above
that of most years. Recipients will be photographed
in a group following honors assembly.
