A Junior Band, which is composed of M7 members, was organized. These players will some day augment the concert band. The year's activities began with the Marching Band accepting an invitation to participate in the NBand Dayn program at Western Michigan College. We did not enter the marching band contest in Benton Harbor because we were not informed in time. As a result, we went as observers only. The Marching Band took part in the annual Halloween Parades at Three Oaks, Sawyer, and New Troy. It was next seen making formations at the basketball games. Some of the themes were: NA Christmas pageant 3 HA Program on Safetyng and WA Pro- gram on Peacen. This year the Marching Band introduced colored cap lights. The Concert Band, Glee Club, and nBe-Bopsn, made their first appearance at the Fall Festival. The program consisted of Marches, Classical and Popular music. Their next appearance was in the Christmas Concert, which was very successful. program included the Baton Twirlers, and also marked the first public appear- of the Junior Band. Some of the highlights of this program were: a Piano by Janice Saurbierg a vocal solo by Kay Skinner: novelty numbers by the band, as NEh, Cumparin and NDragnetn with Ingvar Franzon as the narrator, and other known classical numbers and marches. This ance solo such well The Solo and Ensemble contest was held at Kalamazoo in Western Michigan College on Jan. 31. The following received a second place rating: Ann Sommers- clarinetg Vic Baney-drums: Janice Saurbier and Ann Sommers-clarinet duet: Dolores Narregan and Judy Noggle-cornet dust. The S.W.M.B.O.A. Band contest will be held at Wayland, Michigan, Feb. 26. The band is working very hard to overcome their weakness in sight-reading, as this is an important factor in judging the context. We hope to obtain a good rating. The Glee Club will participate in the Vocal Festival, April 21, to be held at St. Joe. Some of the remaining activities for the Music Department are: a Spring Concertg a Memorial Day Paradeg and also the possibility of an Operetta. The Band Boosters Club was reorganized and has done much to support the band. They raised funds with various activities such as: a spaghetti dinner: bake sales, movies: etc. bThis year the school bought the band new music stands, an EbBass and chair, an E Alto Horn, a tuning bar, and also painted the bass drum and drum heads.

Six of whom were seniors: Gordon Pet erek, Stan Pazder, Carl Gnodtke, Bob Sorget, Harry Olson, and Ingvar Franzon. 10 sophomores and 9 freshmen. Regarding the fact that we Y didn't win any games we still had.a good season. Five games played we lost L and tied l. In our fiPSt game with New Buffalo we had a T.D. called back because of clipping and in addition we had 135 yards in other penalties. Score 7-O. In our second game, played against Buchanan's J.V., we felt a little more ex- perienced and half-back Bill Baney scored New Troy's first legal T.D. Carl Gnod- tke carried the ball 2 yards over the line for the extra point, and New Troy the game 7-O. Then in the second period we gave to Buchanan and they scored 2 T.D.'s. New Troy came ck in the third period and Don Krone scored a T.D. But all this hard work nBucktownn beat us 20-13. Our third game was with Edwardsburg we really thought that we were going to win this game, but due to the absence of some of our players our team wasn't complete. In that game also we had quite a few penalties charged against us, but through all our misfortunes we managed to tie the game O-0. The fourth game of the season was with Dowagiac. By this time the morale of the team was riding high. At the half we were trailing lb-b. Our first T.D.was made by Stan Pazder a senior, and in the third quarter Bob Peterek carried the pigskin across for another Trojan tally. Even though we bowed to defeat it was still one of our greatest games played. The score was 21-12. Our final game of the season was played with Eau Claire. But they Pulled a nBoo-Boon they had a five man defensive line with four linebackers and consequently, none of our plays worked right. Due to two fumbles Eau Claire managed to get two T.D.'s and only one extra point to win the game 13-O. Jn Var Hy ROW ONE J. Wisner, T. Wharton, B. Wallenberg, and L. Sparks. ROW TWO B. Westhauser, K.

The Jr. Varsity, coached by Hank D'Agostino, had a very successful season. They ended up in a first place tie with New Buffa1o's Jr. Varsity. Our team won 15 games and dropped only 2. This fine record was brought about by the scoring abilities of Jack Sizer, Bob Peterek and Larry sparks, and the fine ball handling and defense of the rest of the team. SCORES N. T. Ogp.

Coach Guse took over the team on a Monday and on Tuesday night we had our first game. Our opening game was with Stevensville on our home floor. Our best offensive player was Gene Johnson who scored 2h points. Gordie Peterek also did a good job for the Trojans in his backboard work. The final score was M2-39 in the nCardsn favor.
