1970 BULLDOG ALTUS HIGH SCHOOL ALTUS, OKLAHOMA VOLUME 37 Published by ... The Bulldog StaffWIND FROM the North extends the American and Victory flags to their 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 Bulldog. Kay Price, Dan Iken, Editors CONTENTS FRONTISPIECE ..................................

Gleaming white new sidewalks were laid at that time. LAZY AUGUST afternoon two days before enrollment began in the cafeteria gives little indication of the long lines of students awaiting computer card section assignments 48 hours later. COMPUTER SEVENTIES Best-of-the-old retained Best-of-the-new acquired 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 August with sign-up for the BULLDOG. Altus students set national records in patronage of publications. Editors Kay Price and Dan Iken supervise the paper work as Linda Knapp, Vera Caswell, Glen Alexander wait their turn and Joe Boley makes his payment. "IT HAS to work, they've just given you the combination," Marvina Clark tells llene Silva. Learning locker combinations is one of the hazards of sophomore enrollment day. 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. 3CITIZENSHIP 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. FOOTBALL FEVER at its highest carried over into art, and Gary Burrow, artist, left, did the lettering, Mr. Robert Killebrew, foregrond, and his vocational carpentry students the construction. Jerry Shaffer completes final installation.INITIATION for Future Homemakers of America was conducted by Future Farmers of America officers. At far left is Pati Booker, FHA president, David Cole, FFA president is at far right. Cooperation between organizations character- ized the 1969-70 school year at AHS as students became active in cam- pus-wide events. COLOR CAMERA fans, particularly AHS alumni, had a field day at Christmas photographing Mr. Bulldog Santa at main entrance. He was the product of several departments. CAMPUS WIDE cooperation doesn't just happen. Seated around this table are elected planners, members of the Student Council with advisor (back to camera) Mr. Bill Starr, principal. Others, from left clockwise, Dwight Starr, president; Harrison Mock, Gayla Hill, Pam Bell, Linda LeClair, Bobby McMahan, Ben Bob Mahan, Patsy Plew, Kris Risinger, Craig Thomas, Sam Stauffer, Bimbo Herron. 5FACETS High School community unlimited PARENT COOPERATION always is important at AHS, but seldom does a parent volunteer have the professional status of Mexican Olympic Basketball Coach Lester Lane, right, Mr. Lane attended early fall practice sessions to observe his son, Kevin, sophomore, and talk with Coach Clester Harrington about the season he wouldn't be here to see. He left in mid-fall for the Basque area of Spain to coach a team there for European competition. 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. SOCCER TECHNIQUE worked splendidly for Mexico City student-visitor, Edwardo Cassarin as a football place kicker. Mexicans frequently visit Alius friends or relatives, attending high school and perfecting English before college enrollment. 6 HORSE TRIXIE and rider-owner, Marita Abernathy, sophomore, won first place blue ribbon at Jackson County Fair for performance. Linda Bryce, junior Bulldog staffer, made the picture. Marita later was chosen an Oklahoma Senate page. A WINNER, Pam Avery, left and Merit Scholarship Finalist, Laura Martin, take the patio shortcut between classroom wings. They are in the top two and top one percent of the nation. "YOU'RE ONE THOUSANDTH student," Mr. Bill Starr, Principal, told astonished Sherri Schwartz, junior, as she arrived from Miami, Fla. to enroll. Sherri was presented a special certificate. ALTUS HIGH had a Junior Miss candidate the second straight year. Petite Kathy Herring packs for Miami and the Statewide Competition. 7When 1970 memories are recalled these will be paramount SPONTANEOUS congratulations are extended Homecoming Queen Debbie Byers, Pep Club President by Beverly Young and Jeanne Anne Freeman. FINE GAME DAWGS Mike Thomas, Kevin Stogdill and Billy Thomas tell Lawton Ike "B" team after Dawg victory at Hightower stadium. PATIO PEP assembly generated enthusiasm for the Bulldog victorious invasion of Vernon Lion's gridiron. Coach Jim Cromartie addresses students while Pep Band, in background, waits to play the victory song. At far right are Mr. Bill Starr, principal, Mr. Art Young, attendance director and Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent of schools. 8FAMILIAR STADIUM arrival of Randy Badger, Carol Perry, Kathy Herring, Gail Oakley, Gayla Hill, Georgia Whiteside and DeDe Stenman signal beginning of pre-game cheers. TENSE MOMENT as the Homecoming Queen candidates and their escorts wait for the announcement of the Queen's identity. Ben Bob Mahan, left, moments later crowned Debbie Byers, second from right. Coronation court includes Mahan, Dewey McGee, Gayla Hill, Susie Stauffer, Kyle Ray, Debbie, Larry Turner. OFFICIAL PICTURE day for Altus Bulldogs included individual color pictures of each in new uniforms. Photographer Allen Holliday makes the pictures later displayed by Altus merchants.RECOGNITION 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 college campuses. HARRISON MOCK, SENIOR, asks Sen. Herchal Crow's opinion on leading legislation. Scott Brantley equally interested listens for answers. They were Sen. Crow's first appointees of the year as legislative pages. BETTY CROCKER Home- makers-of-the-Year award was presented Kathyn Ginn, senior FHA member, by Mrs. Ora Littlejohn, home-ec teacher at request of General Mills. JOURNALISM-SPEECH STUDENT Deborah McNeal was given a professional job on radio, based on her "Today at Altus Schools" broadcasts. Deborah was named to "Who's Who in American High Schools." DAR GOOD CITIZENS Medal was awarded Susie Stauffer by Altus Anne Lee Chapter, then she was awarded first-place in the region. Later she was chosen as one of the top three "Good Citizens of the State." 10Each year science leaders of two high schools in each state are chosen by Bell Tele- phone for a trip to Bell Lab- oratories at Murray Hill, New Jersey, and three days in New York City. Altus High's outstanding science teacher, Mrs. R. J. Lockhart, and Pam Avery, Chemistry II senior, were chosen by Southwest- ern Bell Telephone as its 1970 representatives. TUNABLE LIGHT SOURCE, (optical parametric oscillator) is explained at the Bell Lab by Research Scientist Dr. R. G. Smith as Pam Avery and Mrs. R. J. Lockhart watch. Oklahoma Arts and Humanities grant to AHS Varsity Choir made it possible for this group, win- ner of numerous other awards, to secure a stringed ensemble from Midwestern University as accom- panists for the Schubert "Mass in G" at Christmas. REHEARSAL AFTERNOON preceded the formal dress evening recital. Mr. Kenneth Cox, vocal music director, leads the combined groups, Collette Hill, far left, is soloist.HONORS 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 announced. 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. FIVE of the six delegates from Altus High to Boys' State met with Congressman Tom Steed after the Veteran's Day breakfast. Billy Bob Starr greets him. Others from left are Jerry Tabb, Mike Cotney, Harrison Mock and David Chapman. Kyle Davis, the sixth delegate was ill. TOP HONORS ar Southwestern State Band Camp were won by AHS Drum Majors Ken Ward and Kittle Moberly. GET TOGETHER with Congressman Tom Steed was arranged for Girls' State delegates also. Karmen Karr could not be present. Other delegates are Paula Williamson, Kim Pecquinot and Debbie Byers.FIRST FOOTBALL assembly of the season introduces players and coaching staff to the student body. Head Coach Jim Cromartie speaks briefly. Bulldog players in travel and game day uniforms are Billy Bob Starr, John Dean, Marty Cotney, Pat Wallace, Paul Battles, Marvin Francoeur, Bobby McMahan, Craig Garnett, Mark Taylor, John Hickerson, Chad Ferguson, James Herron, James Hampton, Jim Stevens, Ronnie Fields, L. C. Stewart, Sam Rice and Tommy Ray. STUDENT-OF-THE-MONTH for the September issue of the Collar was Paula Williamson, selected by Student Council and kept a secret, even from Paula until the newspaper was distributed. ALTUS TIMES-DEMOCRAT honor scroll is presented Coach-of-the-Year Jim Cromartie, left, by Mike Finley, TD Sports Editor. All-State Lineman-of-the-Year Kyle Davis, left center and Billy Bob Starr, All-State Back assist with the ceremonies.AROUND THE CAMPUS 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. ABOVE: NEWLY shelved titles are checked for reviewing by Candi Cavanaugh, senior. BELOW: "MOST Outstanding Teenagers of America" listed this trio for 1970 . . . Kathy Kiker, Pam Avery, Kyle Davis. ABOVE: SUBJECTS needed for college pieparation are suggested to ninth grader Teresa Payne by Tisha Goldston, senior, guidance office volunteer. BELOW: BACKSTAGE at the auditorium, Donna Dollins rushes to make a quick change between "My Fair Lady" scenes. 14IT WAS RUSH, rush, rush for All State Choir members Craig Thomas, David Chapman, Kathryn Ginn, Donna Lamar, Sherri Gober and Judy Byram as they left Northeast Junior High, where Varsity choir performed, to leave immediately for the January 30 All-State Choir rehearsals and concert in Oklahoma City. THIS STUDIO portrait of Kittie Moberly, All-State Band member and her alto-saxophone, now hangs in the AHS Band Hall of Fame in Music Education Building. TOP ONE PERCENT on the American College Test was achieved by Seniors David Alston, Robert Duckett and Laura Martin. Mr. Adrain Rankin, guid- ance counselor, explains the top score meanings.

TRANQUIL VISTA from Park Avenue entrance of the auditorium reveals walkway in front of Cletus Street Field House and AHS Main. 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. I 16C5-A ARRIVAL 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 accommodated. Accepted as members of the work- ing press, students, writers, and photographers interviewed MAC'S General Catton, toured the University of the Military Airlift Command, manip- ulated controls of simulator, boarded first C-5A. (ABOVE) THEY CAME to interview, but were often interviewed themselves. Tisha Goldston and Janet Hudson discuss television interview. (AT LEFT) DATA Panels are studied by Dan Iken and Judy Keyte on AAAC University tour. (BELOW) VIP luncheon for press and dignitaries began C-5A arrival day events for Collar and Bulldog staffers.OLD AGE arrives at '30' was the theme for Mrs. Bill Brinkman's thirtieth birthday. Her English students brought surprise props to help her play the part. FACULTY What generation gap? Most students at AHS probably would agree it is the good kind. Relationships between teachers and students are cordial, and interest goes be- yond the classroom wall and the subject at hand. Space age knowledge knows no age boundary. 18YOUNGEST BULLDOG boosters are Tannah Cromartie, daughter of Head Coach Jim Cromartie and Mrs. Cromartie, and Pam Pace, daughter of Assistant Band Director Dois Pace and Mrs. Pace. These AHS babies share the same birthday. COOPERATION AMONG faculty and students is demonstrated as nationally known science teacher Mrs. R. J. Lockhart fulfills her promise to bake a victory cake after Clinton game for Chemistry II (college level course) football players, Dwight Starr, Kyle Davis and Tom Holwegner. GUEST OF HONOR speaker at classroom teachers banquet, Lt. Gov. George Nigh, right, discusses pending legislation with Mr. Nick Wolfe, Altus Classroom Teacher Association President. 19ADMINISTRATION 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 of electives. Mr. Clifford Peterson, superintendent of schools, and former AHS principal, with advanced degrees from OU and Southern California serves on many state and regional boards, including educational research. NEWLY appointed to the posts of Assistant Superintendents, Mr. Bailey Snow and Mr. Jerry Doyle supervise transportation, attendance, textbooks and personnel. Both are former high school principals, and Mr. Doyle was AHS principal before becoming assistant superintendent. Mr. Bailey Snow Mr. Jerry Doyle 20 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, vice president. 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. 21ADMINISTRATION 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 teacher. 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, San Marcos, Texas, helps teachers in preparation for testing 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. 23 CARD FILE of new students is studied by Mr. W. C. Davis, junior counselor.FINE ARTS Music, art students use talent in abundant school activities MR. KENNETH COX, M.A., was graduated from Oklahoma City University and North Texas State University. He teaches vocal music and is a nationally known specialist on the changing voice. MR.

PACE, received his masters from Southwestern State College and also attended West Texas University. He is assistant band director at A.H.S. Vocal music, band, and art students of Altus High School are involved in numerous entertainment activities. Students in each subject performed for other schools, organizations, fellow students, and parents. Constant practice kept at peak of perfec- 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. MRS. BOB ROOKER, M.A., attended OSU, OU, and is a grad- uate of the Interamerican University. She teaches Spanish II and is the other Spanish Club sponsor.

MR. JOHN KNIGHT, B.A., graduated from SWSC. He teaches English IV and English II and is a night class English teacher at AJC. 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. KING ARTHUR is portrayed by art student to help visualize the era of Idylls of the King" in Mrs. Dorothy Wells sophomore English class. Kevin Stogdill compares it with text illustration. MRS. EDWARD POWERS, B.S., attended Abilene Christian Col- lege. She teaches English II.BEST TECHNIQUE for play readings is demonstrated by sophomore English instructor, Mr. Larry King to his fifth hour speech class.

LOCKHART, M.Ed., attended Carnegie Tech, Arizona University, OU, and SWSC. She teaches chemistry and sponsors the senior class and JETS. Perennial winner of state and district mathematics awards. Altus High scientists rate equally well in science fairs, contests and research experiments. While athletic records tell of team championships, AHS math and science teachers report newest Ph.D. graduates among alumni of the school. This also was the year Bell Laboratories selected Chemistry instructor, Mrs. R. J. Lockhart and Pam Avery, senior, for a tour of the New Jersey facility. BIOLOGY AND GEOMETRY INSTRUCTORS Mr. Buel Garvin and Mr. Cortis Martin prepare to explain teaching methods to students' parents during the American Education Week open house.

Addition to the com- munity of the Great Plains Museum increased observers awareness of historical events that have occurred in this section of the country. GRADING WORLD HISTORY TESTS is Mr. Anton Edmonson, instructor. MRS. WILLIAM KNARR examines stack of magazines containing articles on the civil war, in preparation for her lecture. MRS.

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 subject matter. MR. DAVID BROWN. B.S. Southeastern State College, has taught both world and American history, this year also super- vises study hall and cafeteria, is assistant football and wrestling coach. MRS. JACK BOCK, new member of the teaching staff, teaches psychology at AHS, English at AJC. Her degree from SWSC is in both fields. AMERICAN HERITAGE series on the Confederacy and the Union generated enthusiastic discussion on the part of students of Mrs. Robert Clayton in American history. BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE of social needs as an experienced worker in migrant education, brought fresh ideas to the classes taught by Mrs. Alton Reid.BUSINESS EDUCATION Office procedures, data processing provide realistic practice Few departments have made as great changes in the last five years as Business Education. High school students today receive advanced courses in data processing, business machines, and general business that qualify them for immediate entrance into the business world, if they wish, following graduation. Students may major in business while in high school, completing Data Processing, Bus- iness Machines, Bookkeeping, Shorthand, Typing I and II, General Business, Business Math, Business English, and Economics.

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.

Cameras record important events which students wish to remember. 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. TRADITIONAL Christmas party at the Altus Golf and Country Club for the Bulldog staff was December 15. Visiting before dinner begins; .are Kay Price, Katie Evans, Linda Bryce, Kathy Pafane, Larry Epperson, Frances Skinner, Karen Fleming, Ray Moreau, Dan Iken, Kim Pequignot, and Tal Oden. 118CONSTRUCTION of the faculty layout is supervised by Editor Dan Iken with Larry Epperson, Senior Staff member.

Equally loyal participation was required in form- ing the nucleus for the Bulldog Boosters, cheering section for basketball, baseball, wrestling, track, and even at the finals in major tournaments for Bulldog golfers. Each Pep Club member purchases her own white flannel blazer with the school emblem, worn with a white blouse and tailored blue skirt, and white socks with dark loafers.

SCHOLARS Twenty-five percent achieve junior semester hour roll rating For most students, heaviest schedule of their high school days is at the junior year.

It also is the year when juniors have additional responsibilities as they participate in fund raising projects to host graduation festivities for the seniors. That 25 percent made the honor roll is attributed by guidance counselors to the mature attitude many juniors have assumed by the time they reach the eleventh year. College, jobs, technical school or military service is only 18 months away. It's enough to sober the most lackadaisal, and usually does.

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. ADDITIONAL HONOR student for the first seme»ter are: FIRST ROW: Debbie Fitzsimmons, Linda Smith, Joyce Reid, Vickie Glaspie, Sondra Ford, Donna Wiginton, Pamn Beach, Debbie Russell. SECOND ROW: Kim Hunter, Sandy Brewer, Dorinda Stout, Rhonda Edmainston, Patty Ferguson, Donald Riley, Philip McMahan, Patty Turner, Phyllis Battles, Connie Satterfield.

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. AFRICAN Kyle Davis signs letter of intent with University of Oklahoma Sooners.

With each year the preparation has become more professional, the cooperation between departments of greater variety. For "My Fair Lady," the 1970 All-School, art classes began painting backgrounds in late November; carpentry students remodeled previous sets and built new props,- band students auditioned for concert orchestra places and com- mercial sewing students began studying methods for making the formal frock coats for the Ascot races scenes. Journalism students helped send press releases to radio stations and newspapers in several coun- ties; vocal music and speech students auditioned for speaking parts and musical scores,- special ticket sales committees were organized wih seniors, who were not cast members as salesmen, since Senior Class receives a portion of the proceeds for its memorial fund. Choreography repeated the difficult routines of the original Broadway show. By February 15 tech- nical aspects were nearly completed, and "My Fair Lady" was in final rehearsals. All-time record attendance on March 2 and 3 established the show as a precedent setter. ABOVE: THREE DIMENSIONAL effect of background canvas was painted by Art students, directed by Mrs. Richard Maffry and Mrs. Ardron Harris. FAR LEFT: VETERAN COLLABORATORS, Mr. Kenneth Cox, vocal music, and Mrs Paul Flippin, director-producer, discuss finish needed for top hats.

"TONGUE DEPRESSED," Prof. Henry Higgins tells Eliza Doolittle, as a last minute drill on the "h" sound, before she makes her new personality debut at the Ascot races. David Chapman played Prof. Higgins, Cathy Bryce, Eliza Doolittle. "MY FAIR LADY" CAST.

"I THINK SHE'S GOT IT," Prof. Higgins gleefully fells Debonair Col. Pickering, played by Doug Smith, as they ask Eliza to repeat "the rajn in Spain stays mainly on the plain." ABOVE: "YOU DID IT, you did it," the domestic staff serenades Prof. Higgins for achievement in presenting Eliza at the Embassy Ball. Ignored Eliza stands forlornly alone. BELOW: RETURNED ELIZA stares in disbelief as her Cockey Cockney father boasts to pub keeper, Harrison Mock.HOMEWARD BOUND majestic C-5A, world's largest plane, sweeps across AHS campus.
