The Christian Trojan's Club was organized in October,
1953, and meets during the noon hour each Thursday. The
purpose of this club is to provide an opportunity for Chris-
tian young people to enjoy a time of fellowship, singing,
worship, and discussion. Non-denominational, it provides a
challenging outlet for an exchange of opinions and views.
Membership consists of any students in high school who
are interested in this type of fellowship.

At the beginning of the year, we lost 12 band members because of schedule
complications. This left us with 2h players. 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.
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,
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.

New Troy's first football team consisted of 31 players. 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.

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.

All-in-all the boys thought they
defeats were close contests.
Just as our basketball season was to open our coach Don Gray was called to
service and Art Guse, a fellow who is well liked in this area and had coached the
Trojans in 1950, was called to take his place. 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
Our second game was with Edwardsburg on their floor. New Troy had control of
the game all the way. The Eddies gave a good but not good gncugh last quarter
spurt. The score at the end of the first quarter was lh-8 and at half time the
Trojans were leading 28-17, and hl-30 at the end of the third quarter. Jerry Toth
and Bill Mackling were high scorers for the losers with 11 points apiece. This
was the Trojans first win of the season.
The next game was on the New Buffalo hardwood. New Troy trailed the first
three quarters but made a successful
final period spurt. At the end of the first
quarter the score was lh all and then the Bisons pulled away and at the half-way
mark the Biggng lead 29-22. By the end of the third period the Trojans had begun
to show them we could play ball. Our team was crippled by Gene Johnson being out
of the game because of fouls. The Bisons also lost 2 players for the same reason.
Gene Johnson collected 15 points and Stan Pazder and Gordie Peterek had 12 points
apiece. Buffalo's new center, Howard Rose, was high for the losers with 21
points. The final score was New Troy 57, New Buffalo 53,
Our fourth game was with Eau Claire on our home floor and the Beavers suffer-
ed a defeat. Gene Johnson lead our offensive play and Gordie Peterek did a good
job on the backboards. The game ended 63-39, New Troy's favor.
Next New Troy traveled to Bridgman and showed the Bees who could do the sting
ing. The Bees tried to stop our great offensive player Gene Johnson, but he was
still able to gather ll tallies. Dean Boyd was top man with 17 points, and was
followed by Baney and Pazder. Ron Batson topped the losers with 13. The game
ended 63-39 in the Trojan's favor.
After our Christmas holiday our
first game was with Baroda on our gym. Our
scoring center, Gene Johnson, wasn't able to play, but substitute center
Schmaltz did a good job. Stan Pazder lead our offensive play in this game
17 points, and was followed by Peterek's 12. Baroda's big man was Handle-
man with 22 points. The final score was M5-35 in favor of Baroda.
After Baroda's game New Troy traveled to Three Oaks. Our center Gene John-
son was still unable to play because
with the measles. New Troy was able
of carbuncles and Fritz Jones was also out
to keep pace with the Oakers till the mid-
dle of the first quarter when 'Z1gg19s' team pulled away. Stan Pazder was our
big gun with 16 points and he also played good offensive ball. Substitute cen-
ter, Fred Schmaltz did a good job in
the center post and Baney played a good de-
fensive game. The Gusemen out-scored the Oakers in the final period 15-9. but
they were still able to beat us 60-hh. Don Martus lead the Oakers in offensive
play with 26 points.
Our eighth game was with Galien

the first quarter they lead 12-8. By half
time we were able to catch them and the score was 19-19. With Johnson and Boyd
scoring we were able to go ahead 35-32 at the end of the third period. Along with
the scoring went Peterek's work on the nBoardsN. The game ended M8-M2 in our
The next game was played at Stevensville and seemed as though all of our boys
