Ignorant of the joys and sorrows which were to be ours, thinking only that at last we had reached a long-sought goal -- High School -- we held our heads high and cared little what others thought. But oh, too soon, it seemed, we realized that our already acquired knowledge was small, that there was greater work to be done! The arrogance of the 42 members ofthat Freshman Class soon turned to meekness, when we found out that the others in the high school considered us just the LOWLY freshmen. Our class President that year was Ron Schuchg our worthy Advisor was Mr. Vernon Schultz. When at last we became sophomores, we possessed all the pride of the graduating seniors. No longer could folks call us "green", We had made friend- ships, and many of us felt we were capable of assuming any responsibility which our school might put on us. New activities caught our interest. This year our class.,Advisor was Mrs. Wirth, and our President was Elaine Wallenberg. When the time came for us to become juniors, we suddenly realized that half of our high school life had gone by. Where we did not know -- the days had passed so quickly. Our class membership had dwindled to a mere 37. Some of our classmates had left school for good, while others had moved someplace else, and were furthering their education. Our big event this year was the Prom, put on by us in honor of the graduating seniors. We also had a big drive to sell magazines, which was our largest money- making venture. It was quite a success. This year we became more familiar with many of the seniors, looking up to them with envy, and anticipating the day when we might assume their title. At last it came. We were Seniors. Our last year has seemed the busiest of them all. First we elected our class officers and advisor. Our President was again Elaine ,.Wallenberg, who had been our president since our sophomore year. Our class advisor was Mrs. Galbreath, who had been of great help to the class in her advisory capacity, and also as a very fine teacher, through both our junior and senior years. She was untiring in her efforts to have a nice prom when we were juniors, and as director of our class play in our senior year she spent much time and effort to make this play a success. On April 29 the Class of 1956 held a prom in our honor at the Whitcomb Hotel, in St. Joseph, on a beautiful evening. Our senior trip, to New York and Washington, was tenatively scheduled for sometime in Aprilg this was an out- standing event in our high school life. Baccalaureate was held on May 22. We knew our days here at Troy were fast drawing to an end, never to come again. We ended our school days with a class night program. We knew we were high school students for the last time. At eight o'clock sharp on the evening of May 25 we marched down the aisle to the platform. This was the completion of many years of effort by the 33 Seniors, and when we received our diplomas it was all ended, save the memories. The next day the school picnic was held, and on Friday we made our last visit to the school to pick up our report cards. As we go, we leave many friends, some never to see again, familiar sights, and many fine teachers, however we still have our memories to live with us forever. During our stay at New Troy we had our share of good times, and also times when it seemed like we just couldn't get ahead. However, everything turned out quite well in the end. ass Play The Senior Class was happy to present "Seventeen Is Terrific," a three act comedy by Esther E. Olson. The play was about a boy named Chuck Allenby, who needed 35.00 in order to take his girlfriend, Ginny, to the Spring Dance. He tried several ways of trying to get the money, and after failing several times, he finally succeeded in getting the money, and everything turned out all right. The Cast was: Dr. Allenby - a dentist .... ...... Grandma - the Doctor's mother-in-law . Hannah Hawks - the hired girl . . . . . . Chuck Allenby - a boy who was always Barbie Allenby - his sister . . . Janie Allenby - another sister . Billie Allenby - baby brother . . Patsy Gardner - a neighbor girl .......

Delores Dinges GIVE ME THAT TOWEL ! ! ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY ! ! THE CLASS OF '55 AS SEEN IN '65 Here it is, 1965, and the class reunion and dinner we had planned at graduation has arrived. We had just finished the decorating when the former Pauline Freehl- ing and her husband Tom arrived. They had just come back from their gorilla- hunting expedition to Africa -- we hope they had a nice trip. Next to arrive was that fearless, world-faznous lion trainer, Eddie Mensinger. Right after Ed came Joyce Sorgetg she is now the head matron of a reform school in Rhode Island. Ron Schuch just drove up in his 1965 Cadillac, he is now a great television an- nouncer -- it seems he ran Marty Faye out of business. Now that everyone has arrived let us go and find out what the rest of the Class of '55 are now doing. Shirley Lane and Nancy Weaver came all the way from North Carolina, where they have their own tobacco farm. Delores Dinges now runs a style shop, and husband Gene J olmson has his own shoe factory so that he won't have so much trouble obtaining size 14 shoes. Jim Richardson and Fred Briggs have a contract for redesigning Studebaker's automobiles -- have you seen the longer, wider, more expensive model? The new art instructor at the New Troy University is none other than Pat Ainsworth. Kay Skinner ma.rried someone named Jim, they are now in the process of raising their own football team, eleven boys -- Kay seems to have forgotten that they're cheaper by the dozen. The former Janet Pazder and husband Bill Baney flew in from the upper peninsula. When he is not chasing butterflies for the Sawyer National Museum, Bill manages a resort in upper Michigan. What's this? Barbara Krieger, named Miss Lonely Heart of 1965, drove down from the mammoth city of Bridgman to join the party. At the same table as Barb we see Dick Ryden and Caryle Anderson, the skating team of Ryden and Ryden, who have come from Chicago, where they are performing in the Ice Capades. Next to them we see Bert Swanson, the great wrestler known the world over as the "Dirty Bird!" Standing by the punch bowl with Gene Johnson we see Bob Woodrick, who now owns a mule farm in Texas -- his Ford just wasn't fast enough. Virginia Hauch and her husband, Don, drove up all the way from Arkansas. Virginia is a model for the FARMER'S GAZETTE. Jon Haman, who is well-known as an excellent photographer, has been taking pictures of our re- union all evening -- except when he joins Gene and Bob at the punch bowl. We had hoped that he would take moving pictures, but he left his movie camera in his customized '65 Ford station wagon. The food for the dinner will be provided by some of our former classmates. The former Mary Wharton and her husband, who live on a potato farm, were only happy to furnish us with potatoes. The fine fish we are having was provided by the one and only Louie's Fish Market -- Lou Golob, that is. The milk was pro- vided by Rich Haroff, who owns a huge dairy farm on the outskirts of the city of Glendora. To make the meal complete, we will finish with watermelons from Ed Forrester's farm, in Arkansas. After-dinner entertainment will be furnished by the famous Paris Can- Can land they surely canj dancers. They are Lois Rakow, Jean Benke, Ruth Hildebrant, Pat Ackerman, Mary Ann Korbelic, and Elaine Wallenberg. They will be accompanied by Janice Saurbier's all boy orchestra. Now that we have seen and talked to everyone, let's get on withthat dinner we have been talking about and waiting for. Our program chairman, Marlene Bross, is getting impatient.

ACTIVITIES This year we lost some of our ba.nd members because of schedule com- plications, but our senior band was augmented by members of last year's junior band. As a result we now have 51 members in the concert band, the junior band, now in its second year, has 25 members. We started practicing two weeks before school started, for a marching contest at Niles. Here a much improved band received a second division rating. The band was invited to participate in "Band Day" at Western Michigan College, but was unable to attend because of other comrnittments. The band marched at some of the football games, it also participated in the annual Halloween parades at Three Oaks, Sawyer, and New Troy. The "Pep Band" played at a few of the basketball games. The concert band made its first appearance of the new year at the annual Fall Festival along with the Glee Club. The program consisted of marches and classical numbers. Our next formal appearance was at the yearly Christmas concert, complete with S1200 worth of new uniforms tpurchased by the Band Boosters Clubjg the junior band, twirlers, glee club, and the newly formed girls vocal quartet, called the "Out-of-Timers" also appeared on the program. Special numbers of this concert were: a trumpet solo by Jim Saurbier, "Soliliquy for Trumpet," "Sleigh Ride," "Ride up in de Chariot," "On the Trail," and "Ballet Parisien." The solo and ensemble contest was held January 29 at Kalamazoo. Christine Klute and Sandra Huling, clarinet duet, received a first place rating, second place ratings went to Judy Kempton and Mary Marx, a saxophone duet, and Caroline Siebler and Irene Gaines, a clarinet duet. This year, for the first time, the contest was judged on a state level. Ann Sommers and Jim Saurbier were chosen to play in the All-Star Band at Dowagiac, and Ann Sommers had the honor of playing first chair in the clarinet section. The S.W.N.B.O.A. UQ band contest will be held February 25 at Constantine. Our sight-reading has greatly improved and we are all hoping for a good rating. The glee club festival will be held April 20, in Buchanan. The remaining activities for the music department are: An operetta for the glee club, a Spring concertg the Memorial Day parade, and the Blossom Parade in St. Joseph. The Band Boosters Club really backed the band this year by buying 16 new uniforms for the band. They raised funds by sponsoring movies, bake sales, dances, selling different items, and so forth, F l ililfiiffff Football Football, a sport which develops character as well as brawn, is one of the competitive sports engaged in by New Troy High School. This being only the second year of football competition at New Troy, the coaching staff measured the season's success by the learning and proper application of fundamentals, rather than going by the victory standard alone. Our first game of the 1954 season was played against the St. Joseph Ponies. After winning the coin-toss, they elected to receive the opening kick-off. Making little progress through our line, they tried a play around our end, which was good for a touchdown. Discovering somewhat of a weakness at the end positions, they employed this same play successfully at various intervals. The first half of the game ended with the Ponies leading, 19-O. However, the second half was a different story. Neither team crossed the goal line, thus the final score of the season's opener was St. Joseph 19, the Trojans 0. The second game was played against a hard hitting Edwardsburg team, which had a quite fast and deceptive offense. They employed a "draw play" which confused most of their opponents, including the New Troymen. Even though we were on the short end of a 30-7 score, we did hit "pay dirt." The next game was with New Buffalo. Finding the going on the ground rough, the Bisons employed an aerial attack. Pursuing their passing tactics, they acquired 20 points to New Troy's 0. The fourth game, which was to be the highlight of the year's schedule, was played against the Buchanan J. V.'s. The evening was cool and clear, the field was well lighted, the New Troy band was there, and a predominantly New Troy crowd was in the stands to witness what proved to be the Trojan's first entry in the victory column. The only win for Bucktown that night was before the game, when they won the coin-toss, they elected to receive, meaning that the Trojans would kick-off. Getting nowhere on their first three plays, they were forced to kick, giving the Troymen the ball. Our first series of plays resulted in a touch- down, after which two more T. D.'s were scored in the first two periods of play, making the score 18-0 at half-time. At the game's end the green and white clad men of Troy left the field victorious on the top end of a 24-14 score. The season's fifth game matched us against the highly rated Galien Gaels. Taking advantage of the breaks, they scored a T. D. in the first half of the game. even though they gained only a total of 17 yards throughout the first two periods of play. The second half saw the play see-saw back and forth, with each team trying to outwit the other. New Troy's only touchdown of the game was scored on a beauti- fully executed pass play. Although the Trojans gained more yardage, and completely outdid the Gaels statistically, the opposition rolled up a higher score, 14 points to our 6. The final game of the 1954 season was with the league champions, Eau Claire's Beavers. This being the first high school football game ever to be played at New Troy. the Trojan team went out on the field determined to do their best. Were it not for the speed of one of their ballcarriers, who returned our opening kick-off 86 yards for a touchdown, and who outran our defenses on a very few plays, the final score would have been much closer than a 26-0 defeat. Captains for each game were named by the coaches. For the first game Eddie Forrester was named. second game--Ron Schuch and Jon Haman. third game--Jerry Schaffer and Norb Natzke. fourth game--Bert Swanson and Bill Westhauser. fifth game--Bob Peterek and Jack Sizer sixth game--Eddie Forrester and Ron Schuch. At the close of the season an election was held and Eddie Forrester was named tea.rn captain for the 1954 football season. COACHES MR, GUSE MR, FORTUNATO MR.

The Cardinals were on the losing end of a 71-65 score as the final buzzer Gene Johnson, starting the season off on the "right foot", accumulated 28 points. On December 3, the Eddies from Edwardburg invaded the New Troy gym. After four quarters of lively action, the Trojans emerged victorious with a 59-44 win. Dean Boyd hit for 18 points. New Buffalo's Bisons were next on the Trojan's schedule. They came to New Troy on December 10 where they were beaten 66-46. Dean Boyd this time hit 20 points. On December 14, the Trojans went to Eau Claire, where they played a much improved Beaver team. After a hard fought contest the Trojans again were the winners, 55-49. Jerry Schaffer led the Trojans scoring attack with 18 points. The Bridgman Bees then invaded New Troy's gym, they were soundly defeated 67-46. Gene Johnson sent 33 points swishing through the nets, his highest one game output. The first game of the new year was played January 7, against Baroda on the Bulldogs court. Dean Boyd hit for 21 points as the Trojans won their sixth Qout of sixj game of the season. The final score was 69-54. On January 11, we traveled to Covert for a non-conference game against the highly rated Covert five. In one of our lowest scoring games of the year, the Trojans went down to their first defeat, 48-42. Dean Boyd and Gene Johnson led the New Troy scoring with 10 points each. THE game came next. On January 13, at the neutral St. Joseph Ponies gym, we engaged the Three Oaks Oakers, with the conference lead at stake. Though the Oakers leading scores were held down, their center, Grigel, got hot dunking in 37 points. The Oakers emerged victorious after a hard fought contest 60-51. Gene Johnson led the Trojans with 22 points. On January 18, the men of Troy went to Galien where they downed the Gaels 65-48. Gene Johnson again scored 22 points. The Stevensville team next came to our gym to take on the second-place Trojans. They left on the end of a 65-54 score, as Jerry Schaffer led the Trojans scoring with 19 points. On January 25, we went to Edwardsburg, where we again won, 66-40. Dean Boyd contributed 27 points to the Trojan cause. Next, on January 28, we traveled to New Buffalo, where Gene Johnson added 22 points to his season's total, and the Trojans won 72-58. On February 1, the Eau Claire Beavers came to New Troy, and did what they should not have done---beat us by 1 point. Gene Johnson had 32 points, but an Eau Claire free throw in the final seconds spelled the Trojans second conference loss. We got back on the victory trail on February 4, as we beat Bridgman, 73-54, Gene Johnson again scored 22 points. On February 9, the Covert team came to Troy, and the Trojans experienced another non-conference defeat, 63-59, after a hard fought battle. Dean Boyd led the Trojans scoring with 16 points. Baroda's Bulldogs come to New Troy on February 11. Inthe Trojan's highest scoring game of the year, the Bulldogs were defeated 84-55, as Gene Johnson dunked in 25 points. The Annual deadline came before the Three Oaks and Galien games had been played, so those scores have to be omitted. 1 HEI 'Hllll J. t ' 'iff' 3' 'Ur ll b ,st S C I 1 1 "V 't Activities ' A 5 4 Y IW J' 4, SEPTEMBER 7 School opened 22 Football 8: basketball cheerleaders chosen " 24 First football game with Edwardsburg 1 OCTOBER I Football game with New Buffalo NOVEMBER DECEMBER JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH APRIL MAY v 'k qs Q 'W Freshman-Sophomore party Football game with Galien Started taking Senior pictures Marching Contest Halloween Parade Closed school at noon Fall Festival Assembly "Progress Makes Perfect" Seniors presented a three act comedy, "Seventeen Is Terrific" First basketball game played with Stevensville.
