On The Drink Of Yesterday In Harmony With The Past As rhe 1979-80 school year replaced rhe lazy days of summer, we found ourselves On the Drink of an exciting new decade-rhe 1980's. With fond loving memories for some- omid disillusionment of unfulfilled dreams for orhers, we closed rhe doors on rhe 70's ond heorrily embraced rhe beginning of a new decode! As rhe rurn of rhe new century encroached upon our proud Sooner Store, we srill gazed boldly bock ro our heritage. The store morro Labor Omnio Vincit which delineares Labor Conquers All Things is accredited ro rhe fame of our short gross counrry ond agriculture. Neighboring stores os we ore, we found ourselves '‘jusr on rhe border" of Texas, a srare ro which we arrribured many years of harsh pioneering. We are also "on the brink" of Red River where our rwo srores lay rheir long disputed southern boundary line. Each day evolved, reflecred, and added ro rhe coming of rhe new decode.

After the hubub of the day, long hours of sirring in doss, it was rime for the lost bell — 3:20. Now whor? It was during the evening hours that the student who didn't study could finally forger about those nasty rests, let loose, and relax. Finding something to do didn't involve o great deal of intrigue. There was making the drag, watching TV, or going to o movie. During the summer, Lake Alrus proved to be o most populor spot for 'worm weather goof- off.’ All day, oil night there wasn't anything to do except what our imaginations could dream up.

The night of homecoming was one filled with suspense, emotions, and the will power and determination to beat the Wolverines; but the highlight of the night wos the crowning of the 1979-60 homecoming queen of half- time. For the queen candidates, the five days were filled with anticipation ond preparation for the special moment ot halftime. To each one of the girls the excitement, the love ond the butterflies were oil worth the honor they felt in their hearts. Waiting for those magic words to echo from the press box, hearts were pounding, fingers were gripping the supportive arms of their escorts, ond then . . . "Our 1979-80 Homecoming Queen is . . . Miss Joye Watson!” The moment hod come ond for Joye it wos o moment she wished she could hold on to forever. The crown wos presented by the returning 1978-79 A.H.S. Homecom- ing Queen. Miss Debbie English. The victory of the Bulldogs over the Shownee Wolverines interlocked the cli- max of homecoming week. That night oil the Altus fons In the stadium felt the emotion pocked into this traditional event. For the students, the entire five days of spirit week wos planned ond pre- sented by the student council.

There was a 15% increase in hires over 1977-78, according to employers responding ro a College Placement Council's year end assessment This was the third consecutive year that job prospects improved. All disciplinary areas and degree levels surveyed experienced increases in hiring over the 1977-78 season Engineering showed the strongest gains with o 22% increase. Next was the science, math, and technical category which recorded a 19% advance. In the business category, employers indicated that they hired 12% more students with business-related degrees than they did the previous year. As seniors set immediate career goals and underclassmen planned fields of study by selecting appropriate secondary courses, the counselors sought to fomiliorize themselves with current job trends and curriculum requirements for new fields of interests.

This, like any of rhe other programs such os sports and other extra curricular activities, is by for, one of the finest around. Although joining dubs and getting involved in high school is extremely important, the importance of excelling in ocademics should be stressed. The three years spent in high school prepare us for whatever we moy encounter in rhe future, whether it's getting o job directly after graduating or going on to college and then o career. Many rimes, especially during rhe sophomore year, we don't realize that rhe biology doss that is so boring or rhe algebra doss that we despise are very important and ore helping to prepare for things we moy encounter lorer in life. Every day, of every doss, no matter whor it is, should be utilized to rhe fullest If we keep this in mind, perhaps somewhere down the rood we will be glod that we paid attention to rhe teachers' lectures insreod of sleeping or writing notes to our boy or girlfriend.

Take a good look at two paper boys who devote their free rime to rake the pressure off the paper deliver to the subscribers-usually without complaints. Gory Reynolds devotes three hours a day, traveling over one and a half miles and delivering between 50 to 60 papers. Depending on the generosity of the people, Gary mokes anywhere from $80 to $100 a month and then deducts (money for purchasing the papers as well as necessary rubber bands. With the money he makes, he divides it, putting half in the bank — to save for a car — and the other half for spending money. Another example is Jimmy Glass, who only takes 10 to 20 minutes folding and delivering papers on route which spons a half mile. He earns about $65 a month, still meeting the same expenses as Gary. When asked what he does with his money. Jimmy casually answers, "Spend it, what else?" SOPHOMORE 174 SophomoresDempsey. Ron Dischner. Rikki Dodd. Lisa Dominguez. Ernest Donnell. Linda Dorsey.

The automatic bell rings; walking down rhe hall you hear phones ringing and no one answering; rhe ringing continues unril you rhink if you don'r hurry all rhar ringing might give you a nervous breakdown. (If rhor happens you could be handicapped for life!) You finally ger ro first hour, you dust off your sear and sir down. Jusr sirring rhere you look around and norice all rhe cobwebs, dirt, rrash, and even rhe smell of rhe room. Your teacher even seems a lirrle disorganized roo. Monoging ro go rhrough rhe rest of rhe two hours, lunch comes up Walking ro rhe cafererio you remember ir is dosed; rhe cooks ore all gone and rhe lunch ricker lady is lounging around on a sofa wirh a Dig Mac and fried for lunch wirh a 10a carton of milk. The inside of your stomach musr hove some food so you feed ir some junk food and end up wirh a stomach oche. The resr of rhe day seems ro be endless and very tiresome, bur finally rhe last bell rings and you rush our of doss ro your locker - which could really use some insecticides. The phones are still ringing and rhe rordy slips all over rhe floor remind you of rhe copy room wirh papers everywhere and office girls giggling over boys' gossip while drinking rhe teachers' coffee Finally you step our of rhe school building and brearhe some dean air.
