From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
   ALPS
  
      1. An early interpreted {algebraic language} for
      the {Bendix G15} by Richard V. Andree of the {University of
      Oklahoma}.   ALPS is said to have preceded and influenced
      development of {BASIC}.
  
      Dale Peters reports that in the summer
      of 1966 he attended the second year of an {NSF}-sponsored
      summer institute in mathematics and computing at the
      University of Oklahoma.   Richard Andree taught the computing
      class which mostly used the language GO-GO which was later
      renamed ALPS.   Andree, Harold Wiebe, Ralph Howenstein, and
      another grad student were changing the language frequently
      during the class, which was occasionally a little
      disorienting.   Dale believes it was used in the previous
      summer as well and that it was about this time that Kemeny
      (one of the designers of BASIC) saw it during a visit.
  
      2. A parallel {logic language}.
