[R] interpolating a lot of data at once

I have a big dataset containing a lot of values for 1970, 1980 and 1990. I want to interpolate values for the years in between, and also if possible to extrapolate to 1968 and 1969. The method doesn't have to be clever but I am looking for a function that will do all the data at once. (Doing foreach, or apply, is just too slow!) Is there something that will take

list(df$val.1970, df$val.1980, df$val.1990)

as inputs and output an interpolated matrix?

Cheers
David
