"Hello, 'Bud' "-the Trojan who has not
at some time heard this familiar greeting
is, indeed, rare, for Mr. Valentine, our
superintendent of schools, is never too
busy to stop to talk to us, collectively or
individually. Each of us has either experi-
enced or observed an example of his re-
markable sympathy and understanding.
His advice and opinions are sought after
and heeded by the entire student body.
Not the least of his accomplishments,
is his deft and efficient management of
our school affairs, instituting new ideas,
methods, and improvements, Whenever
and wherever they are needed. Were we
seeking one who typified the true Trojan
spirit, we should need to look no further.
Behind the scenes in our "Mod-
ern llium" there are three ener-
getic, progressive persons: the
members of the school board. Mrs.
W. H. Boyer, Mr. Ray Davis, and
Mr. George Fields manifest their
interest in us in every possible
way. They are constantly alert for
new ideas, constantly encourag-
ing our initiative and school spirit,
and always ready to counsel and
advise the members of the faculty
as Well as the student body.
Last Fall, we had a new leader in our
Trojan City. Mr. I. R. Mitchell arrived to
become chief "Trojan Citizen". The ex-
pression, "Trojan Citizens", incidently,
was originated by Mr. Mitchell and has
become a familiar phrase in our daily
He at once set about inaugurating new
methods and plans for the improvement
of our building. Mr. Mitchell is intensely
interested in all the student activities of
our school. In his work, he tries at all
times to provide each student with a Well-
rounded social and academic life. In this
endeavor, he has been most successful.
Our principal spent his boyhood on a
farm east of Salem, Indiana. He still owns
that farm, and hopes that sometime in the
future he may retire to it. Mr. Mitchell
attended the schools in Salem, and was
graduated from the Salem High School.
After his graduation, he spent one year
at the Indiana State Teachers' College in
Terre Haute, Indiana. From this school,
he transferred to Indiana University where
he received both his B. S. and M. S. de-
He taught in the rural schools of Wash-
ington County, Indiana, after doing some
graduate Work at the University of Colo-
rado. For two years he was an instructor
in the Montpelier High School, Montpelier,
Indiana. He then accepted the position of
basketball coach in Seymour, Indiana. In
a short time, he was advanced to the prin-
cipalship of the school.
From Seymour, he came to New Castle,
relieving Mr. Valentine of a part of the
burden he Was bearing in his dual ca-
pacity of principal and superintendent.
Here, in New Castle, he has made many
warm friends and an indelible impression
upon our life within the Walls of N, H. S.
Our dignified, yet always friendly, deans-Mr. Bronson, Miss
Fern Hodson, Miss Westhafer, and Mr. Greenstreet.

Pl-IYLLIS RAY, Secretary
To some of our senior "Trojan Citizens" this year has been one of brilliant
finality, to others, it has been one of finality, but not of brilliance. We have
had fun, we have made lasting friendships, and We have learned a great deal,
if not from books, from our teachers and fellow students. Many of us look
upon our years in Modern, Troy as stepping-stones to future achievement,
While, unfortunately, many of us look back regretfully upon Wasted time. No
matter what our attitude toward our high school life, We are unanimous in
the belief that they are years that will not be forgotten. Years in which We
were imbued with the spirit, ideals, and virtues of our predecessors, the ancient
As officers to represent us during the last few months of our life in N. H. S.,
we chose Reese Williams, president, Martha Schuffman, vice-president, Phyllis
Ray, secretary, and William Saint, treasurer. Their ability to lead the senior
class in upholding the ideals of ancient Troy has been great, and they have
performed the difficult task to the best of that ability.

That industrious looking group in the upper left-hand corner is the Editorial
Stall of the annual. Margie is helping lack hold his letter while she goes
over dummy plans with our editor and advisor. The Barbaras, one and two,
are looking over an old annual.
The Business Staff is out for a breath of air. Don't let it tool you though.
They were a very diligent crew. "Bokie" Rawlings seems to have said some-
thing tunny. Anyhow, "Bobbie" Meek, our Business Manager, and Betty and
Pierre are amused.
The Art and Picture Staffs look as if they were working hard. lack is finishing
up one ol his drawings while Kenny cuts the pictures to the size Melvin wants
them. Notice that carefully placed picture under Melvin's thumb. Could lack
Gann have had anything to do with that? Torn Petty, our ace photographer,
is putting something away in that ever present camera bag of his.
The group around the table in the lower right hand corner put out the copy
that the editorial stall started howling for last December. There they are: Ruth
Atwater, Eddie Gold, Gemma Moles, Marjorie Nielander, Willena Hixon, and

The gymnasium was decorated with
bright streamers above the dance floor
and large pictures of Ferdinand in various

when Miss Virginia Lee MacDonald was
crowned prom queen. Her attendants were
Miss Barbara Meek, Miss Rosanne Rawl-

At the beginning of the year, a linotype machine was purchased by the print shop, making it
possible for students to set all the copy for the paper.
In October the first semester staff sent six representatives to the Indiana High School Press
Association, held at Franklin College. Editor Marjorie Nielander, Associate Editor Barbara
Bruce, Business Manager Melvin Poer, and Rosanne Rawlings, Esta Belle Morris, and Reese
Williams of the staff attended the convention for three days. They exchanged much interesting
information with other delegates to the I. H. S. P. A., and brought back many new ideas.
One of the highlights of the first semester work was the beautiful ten-page Christmas issue
of The Phoenix.
The second semester staff, under the able leadership of Editor Mary leanne Huffman, Asso-
ciate Editor Ann Wright, and Business Manager Fred Odom, continued to set a high journalistic
standard. Many worthy papers were issued, including a special tournament issue in March:
This staff's work was characterized by fine sportswriting, following our victorious basketball
The Printing Department, which is closely related to. the literary staff, has done l'Trojan"
work for four semesters. lack Gann, Melvin Poer, and Thurston Watters are the boys who
have helped put out the paper each week during those four semesters.
Mr. Ioseph Greenstreet, head of the Iournalism and Printing Departments, deserves much
credit for his great help and kindly advice.

Sunshinel Sunshine! Sunshine! Again this year the Sunshine Society scattered its pene-
trating rays throughout the high school and community, proving their worth as Trojan citizens
of New Castle High School. .
Everyone has been conscious of the presence of the Sunshine members this year. They have
helped to promote the success of the various school functions and programs and have helped
with the school projects.
Starting the first of the year with a reception for new students in senior high school, and
ending it with a party honoring senior members of the society, the Sunshine Girls wrote finis
to a successful year of accomplishments. Among their many and diversified activities through-
out the school year were included the County Convention, the Sunshine Christmas Party, the
Valentine Faculty Party, and the Sunrise Easter Services. The Sunshine Girls, through their

This organization is better
known as the French Club. The
"Frenchmen" are some of our
best Trojan boosters, 'although
the purpose of this club is to
stimulate interest among pupils
for continued work in French.
Informal meetings are held in
which all students who have
studied French for at least one
year may participate.
These "Trojans" have gained
a great deal of valuable in-
formation through this club by
listening to outside speakers
and learning about French cus-
toms and background.

The weather being very mild last fall with
hardly any snow until December, these stu-
dents, like real Trojans, were faithful to their
club, and prayed for snow.
Their prayer was answered by a multi-
tude of snow which lasted longer, we think,
than their desire to ski.
They elected the following officers: Robert
Berg, president, Mary Lou Himes, vice-pres-
ident, and Rodney Fergeson, secretary-
treasurer. Mr. Heller sponsors the club.

ground for the Crescendo Varieties and attended the Ball State Music Festival this spring.
The Crescendo Club, living up to its famous and descriptive name, gradually increased its
membership this year and became one of the most popular organizations in school.
Its biggest exploit was the presentation of the second annual "Crescendo Varieties", which
was attended by a capacity crowd, even surpassing last year's attendance. The "Land O'
Cotton" minstrel, presented at the first of the year by this club, was another successful venture.
The club is open to all students who appreciate music. The meetings are devoted to the
study of famous composers and conductors and to different types of music.

and worthwhile addition. The sponsors are Miss Dorsey and Mr. Copeland. The officers were

Do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do-these were the familiar sounds we heard coming from the music
room each Wednesday after school. The Girls' Glee Club seriously vocalizing to get the right
tones and sounds and singing familiar old melodies, have created a musical atmosphere
which enshrouds our entire school. This year it was the largest musical group in high school
with a membership totaling eighty-five.
One special occasion to which the girls all look forward is their annual trip to Muncie where
they sing in the Spring Music Festival at Ball State Teachers' College.

Although the win and loss column may not prove to be the best, our Trojan Colts conquered
very much in the field of fundamentals. The squad was composed of freshmen and sopho-
mores, each having two years or more in which to prove their ability. Working from the
ground up, these young warriors learned the game along with its important fundamentals.
Working from the idea, "if you have a well drilled second team, the first team will have to be
up to par all the time to cope with the yearlingsf' our first record speaks for the aggressive-

During his second year as trackrcoach, "Griz" Ba er had a very promising squad. About
fifty boys answered the first call for training.
Meets were held with Batesville, Morton Memo ial, Anderson, Pendleton, Muncie, and
The main event of the season was the "Rose Rel ys"-the first time any night track meet
was ever held in New Castle. Representatives from any state schools participated.
The high light of the meet was the Relay Queen' presentation of the awards to winners.
The presentation was accompanied by a fanfare from the band.
With this team sporting such stars as Felix, Hay s, Lewis, Russel, Chandler, Askin, Keys,
Garner, Dudley, and Matney, we had one of the g -eatest track and field aggregations ever
to represent the Green and White.
The boys who are responsible tor
our team's being in tip-top condition
are the faithful Student managers.
The task ol loosening up the muscles
and getting the players in champion-
ship form falls on these boys.
With tennis on the up and up more than ever in New Castle High School, a tennis team
proved its ability on the clay courts by Winning two and losing two of their matches in the
fall. Coach Allen has four sparkling racquet wielders back for spring activity in Dick Witten-
braker, Warren Lewis, Pierre Zetterberg, and Iohn Yost. Congratulations on a very successful
"ln Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." His Wandering dreams
also drift to the great outdoors, to the Wide open spaces, especially to thegolf links Where
the most familiar sounds one hears are "Fore," "A birdie," and "Putt"
season. You played like champs.
The young men of N. H. S. are no different. They too go out forthe sport of champions,
namely golf. When the call for golf was made many boys turned out and from them a golf
team was selected, consisting of these boys: Marshall Koontz, Dick Hufford, Dale Biddinger,
Dean Morrell, and Glen Mattox. They participated in several meets held throughout the
state. These were Central of Muncie, Burris of Muncie, Marion, Richmond, Anderson, Tech-
nical of Indianapolis, and the State Meet, also held at Indianapolis.
