V Twenty OUR CLASS TEACHER Our class teacher has been with us for four years, She has borne with us the trials of Freshmanity, She has passed with us through the insignificant year of Sophomority, She has helped to retard the necessity for larger hatbands, Which is always so prominent during the Junior year, She has always, at least, pretended she rather liked us, She has never given us occasion to dislike her, She has often smoothed over the rough places, and calmed us down at the proper moment, She has thrust upon us some knowledge of American history and Spanish, But she has succeeded in giving us a little of something more lasting and useful-common sense. No class teacher could do more, And for all this she has received no visible reward-nor has she desired any But in each of our minds she has been given a 14-k halo, And in each of our hearts she occupies a large, warm, reserved section, For our class,teacher has been with us for four years. CLASS OF '27 Trcvfn fy 'unc CLASS PROPHECY - 1927 About ten o'clock one morning a medium height Irishman, with blue eyes and red hair, walked into the office of Hyman and Patterson and asked for the manager. The otlice boy, who was chewing approxi- mately six and seven-eights sticks of gum, wiggled his ,Wrigley's to the other side of his mouth and read aloud from the card, "Mr. Thomas Dougherty, Cartoonist of the San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco, California." Then he b1'oke all ofiice rules by shouting, "Hey boss, that artist feller from Frisco what you know just blew in." When Harry Phillips came hurrying from the manager's -ofiice, Tom surely experienced a surprise. He had come primarily to see the lawyer of the firm. You can imagine how much business the old classmates did that day. Of course, all business was off - then Harry remarked, "You may just as well see our lawyer tomorrow. You 1ieedn't think you can drift in, after I haven't seen you for ten years, and mention business to me. We're going to talk-and, speaking of our lawyer, you'll never guess who he is." "Well, come on loosen up," protested Tom. "Who is it ?" "It's Richard Von Hagen," Harry answered. "He's certainly made good." "Well," said Tom, "I met some -of the old classmates, too, on the trip down here. The old Henry Ford Special lost a cylinder through the exhaust pipe yesterday afternoon and I pulled into a garage to get her fixed. It happened to be Edith I-larshman's establishment. She unscrewed the radiator cap, jerked up the left hind wheel, looked under the back seat and announced that I had a di1'ty spark plug. Well, she lixed her worse than ever and I stalled three miles out of town. I was just starting to hunt for a farm house when two ladies drove up with a horse and buggy. And just guess who they were? Martha Lizer and Ruth McMaster! They were running a registered chicken farm. They took me on to the next town and I took the train from there." 'Tm glad to hear that Martha and Ruth havefound an occupation so suitable for them," said Harry. Then glancing at his watch he exclaimed, "It's almost one o'clock. We have talked right through th dinner hour. Let's go around and have a bite to eat in Toshi's Tea Room. We'll go over to Dick's after lunch, but no business until tomorrow." . Comfortably seated in the most picturesque little tea room in Holly- wood, Tom immediately recognized the manager as Toshi Kiyomura, another of the graduates of the renoxwied class of '2'7. He then found himself staring intently at the cashier at the desk, until Harry reminded him of the fact that their lunch had been served. "Say, old man," exclaimed Tom, "haven't I seen that woman before?" Twenty-two "Why of course you have," said Harry. "That's Elizabeth Stafford! Surely you haven't forgotten Lulu Palazo in the Senior play, "Amazon Isle," have you? Well that's the same girl all right." i After enjoying a perfect meal, Tom and Harry talked for some time with their old classmates. Here they learned that Genevieve Bar- ber had just been selected as court stenographer at a case in which the villian, Maurice Fyfe, was to be brought to trial for a breach of promise suit. It was the third suit of this kind in which he had figured. One would never have believed that of Maurice. Ted Troost, famous criminal lawyer, would defend him. The renowned Judge Thomas Jones was to listen to the testimony and render one of his noted and just decisions. The two friends then walked into Dick's office and here received another surprise. For there was Mary Guyan seated in the room with him. She told us that she was getting advice from Dick about her business affairs. She is now owner of the Wiggly Piggly chain stores. Then Dick turned loose with this: "I have just read in the Los Angeles Herald that Ruth Lingenfelter will take up the duties of editor- in-chief of that paper next month. Lucille Morrison was recently elected vice-president of the Bell Telephone Company and Eugene Risden has :lipped twenty minutes off the world's record for the hundred mile race. At the finish he smashed into Charline Edward's portable hospital. In the smashup two lap hounds, which belonged to Ruth Murray, the "great powderpuff vampire" of screenland, were killed. Risden is being sued for his winnings and is awfully discouraged." The friends sat in silence for a few minutesg then Tom asked Mary, "What became of your friend Ruth Warren? I haven't heard of her for years ?" "Why, don't you know?" exclaimed Mary. "She's governor of Texas and is one of the most important leaders in the Republican party. Her husband is he1' campaign manager." "Well, say," gasped Tom, "this is surely a day of miracles. I've heard more grand news today than I ever expect to hear again." "You haven't heard the half of it," said Harry. "But first I'm going to ask you home to dinner with me tonight. You'll come Won't you, old top?" . "Really I don't kn-ow how I can refuse! '," "All right, then," said Harry. "Let's get going and not bother Dick anymore. I see that lVIary is very anxious to get this matter over with." "So long old classmates, good luck to both of you," cried Harry and Tom in unison. A half hour later Tom found that Harry was driving him to a vez' ' beautiful residential section of Los Angeles. Soon Tom broke the silence by saying, "Harry, old boy, we've talked most all day and you have not told me a thing about yourself. Supposing you start. in now. What have you done in the last ten years? Y0u'1'e married of cours-e, aren't Twenty -three Vou? And say, by the way, whom did you walk up the aisle with ?" "Say, Tom, you just can't guess. The dandiest little girl that ever lived. But I'm not going to tell you now. You've yet one more surprise coming to you today, Tom, be ready," finished Harry as he turned his little roadster into a lane that led up to the coziest little bungalow Tom had ever seen. ' They entered the front door and were met in the hall by-well guess who-Eileen Woodburn, of course. After very cordial greetings had taken place between the old friends, they entered the house. After dinner that evening the three sat in front of a cheerful fire and once more took up the wanderings of the :lass of '27. "S-ay, what's this!" exclaimed Tom, as he picked up the evening caper. "Floyd Chandler-why it can't be our old friend who is recently elected senator for California - Yes it is our own Floyd because it says his home is in Redlands. Well, can you beat that?" "That certainly eclipses all," cried Eileen, while Harry was utterly speechless. The spell was broken suddenly by a sharp ringing of the loor bell. And who do you suppose was ushered in-? At first none of them knew. Then when the man stood before them announced that he was Ray Sleppy, athletic coach of the University of California, Southern Branch, they received a shock this time which warned them to be seated again. 1 After greetings were exchanged, Harry said, "Say, Ray, have you ever heard of Warren MacMillan? I haven't seen or heard of him since we left school." "Yes, I have. About three years ago I was stranded in Jazztown, Iceland. I wanted to get out of the place, so went down to the docks to see if I couldn't nnd a ship on which I could work my way out. There was a fine private yacht in the harbor so I went towards the pier to see how the prospects were. As I approached I noticed a person whom I thought to be the captain. Coming still closer I recognized Warren MacMillan, and I had a long talk with him. DLu'ing the conversation he informed me that Benny Lepkin had opened a tailor shop there in Jazz:- town and was making tuxedos for the Eskimos. As a sideline he teaches them dancing." "Oh, yes," said Ray. "I almost forgot to tell you about Everett Richhart. After he graduated from the Forestry Department at U. S. C he was appointed chief inspector of all the National Parks in the United States. Pretty good for old Dutch, don't you think? And there's Allen Musselwhite too. He has recently been successful in getting into con- nection with Mars. He has invented an instrument which allows a per- son to see as well as to talk with the inhabitants of Mars." f "Oh, by the way, Harry," said Eileen. "I read some very interesting 'iews in the paper this morning. Pauline Mayhew has opened an exclu- Twen ty-fan r I l I sive art shop in North Hollywood. We'll have to drop around and see her some time." "That's surely fine for Pauline. I always knew she could do it," said Harry, "And, oh yes, isn't this June 10, 1937? Say, it is! This is the opening night for Cassie I-lansen's latest play, "Two Crooks and a Lady," starring the famous actress, Ethelene Woodington, and her leading man, Frances Edmonds. Dee Williamson and Eustaus Long are the two crooks. We simply must see that picture. What do you say we go?" The picture was the best ever, and to cap it off there was a vaude- ville long to be remembered. The prologue contained some musical numbers by the famous composer, Russell Roberts. They were played by Johnnie Fiesel's well-known orchestra. This was followed by a vocal solo by Edward Price, accompanied by his wife, Dorothy, at the piano. The program closed with a violin solo written and played by Clifford Ruppel, who had replaced Frit Kreitzler. On the way home Eileen said, "Isn' it wonderful how our class has progressed? In all of our talks I don't believe we have mentioned the oerson who made all of our success possible. Mrs. Boynton, our class teacher, so very dear to all of us, has likewise brought other classes through the same trials of the four years just as she did for us." Harry added, "Pm afraid we could never thank her enough for what she has done for us." "She was a wonderful teacher and friend," agreed both Tom and Ray The two then left their friends and went on their own wav, reflecting over the success or failure of the different members of the Class of 1927 of Torrance.

Vivian Beckwith Art The Junior class has artists. Convince yourself by going to the zentral library in Los Angeles and seeing the beautiful poster, "Wild Flowers," drawn by Richard Sinclair. Since this received first place in 1 contest, the poster will be distributed and displayed throughout all California in a "Save the Wild Flowers" drive next fall. Athletics Athletics are a specialty of the Junior class. Kieth Tinsley is athletic zommissioner. It contributed Ben Townsend, center of the champion varsity teamg Howard Hudson to the champion flyweight teamg Harold Cook to the lightweight teamg Dale Merritt, captain of the lightweights and Robert Kembel and Harwood Clark to the midgets. The Junior girls hold the championship of the school in basketball and volley ball. Vivian Beckwith and Hazel Clark are star track girls. Can they Jump? Just watch them. Qratory A great deal of local interest was directed toward our school by the Junior Orator, Richard Sinclair. If you did not hear his constitutional essay, you have certainly missed something worth while. Richard was given first place in the school tryout. He was not so successful in the iistrict meet, but we are proud of him. Honorable mention must be given to Marion Vieths and Harwood Clark, who represented us in the :lass finals. Twenty-eight Dramatics As a commercial enterprise the Junior play, "Bab," was a decided success. Sorry to say Bab, Gertrude McCoy, has left, but may return to T. H. S. next year. Gertrude made a charming leading lady. No wonder that Russell King, a small town shiek, aspired to the honor of being Bab's best friend, or that Francis Edmonds attempted to be a heart breaker, or that Richard Danton was considered lucky to win her. Eugene Risden was kind and fatherly, and Olive McKenzie, a typical society-mother. Henry Walker, an amusing English gentleman, caused much excitement in his plans to win the older sister, Frances Haynes. Lois Zuver was Bab's girl friend, a help in time of need. Harry Mintun, the butler, showed his ability in delivering a bouquet, and Hazel Clark announced the guests with a true maid's dignity. Social The girls of '28 had their annual theatre party May 7. They saw "Old I1'onsides," at Grauman's Egyptian Theater. It will be a long remem- bered occasion. The Junior-Senior banquet -occurred June 4, the largest held in the history of Torrance High School, The motif used was the fan, this being done with the Senior colors of red and white. Their flower, the Cecil Brunner rose was used in the deco-rations, and souvenirs. The pro- gram was entertaining, and, we hope, fanned into a glow pleasant mem- Jries of Torrance, that the Seniors will take with them when they leave us. The well-rendered selections offered by the high school orchestra were both pleasing and entertaining. Musical numbers were given by Vivian Beckwith, the teacher's quartette and Lois Zuver and Johanna Neelands. Virginia Cook gave a clever Apache dance, and an appro- priate reading was given by Maxine Brown. A group of Junior girls entertained with a drill. Ben Townsend acted as toast master. School Life In Student Body doings the Junior class, especially the girls, pride themselves on being at the top of the list. Ask what class is one hun- dred per cent student body and you will get the prmpt answer, "the girls of '28," For their efforts they were awarded a large red and gray pennant to be put on the flagpole. They are proud of this pennant, but to put it on the flag pole meant that it would become faded. Therefore, it was displayed in the class room. The class has upheld all student body problems and helped to keep efficient officers in tenure. Christine Hamman has been a very good secretary and has held her oflice through- but two terms. Do you think the class has executive ability?

Those on the Midget team were John Kolesar, Charles Ruppel, Joe Townsend and Harwood Clark. And last, but by no means least, the Fleaweight team included Orville Hudson, Howard Hudson, LaDorn Hall, and Robert Williams. The managers were Francis Buchman and Melvin McFarland. In track were Alfred Pennington, Charles Ruppel, Orville Hudson, LaDorn Hall, and Howard Hudson. In baseball were found James McCoy, Robert Bartlett, Joe Gianero, Melvin McFarland and Keith Tinsley, with Forrest McKinley acting as manager, Y',l.i7'f'lj-H1 ree The Sophomore class has four members on the Honor Roll. They are Jacqueline Treadwell, Louise Hilpert, Elwood Nahmams and LaDorn Hall. . March 25, the day which had been planned by the Sophomore class for their weinie bake and plunge party, threatened to be bleak and cold. Rain seemed certain much to the disgust of the poor Sophs. But - ah! the day cleared and they shouted loud and long because their massacre af the noted hot dog was to be carried out for sure. As to going to Redondo and visiting their "old swimming hole" - well, that was a oleasure they had been looking forward to for some time. Miss Lingenfelter, Mrs. Morse, and Mr. Austin accompanied the party which arrived at Redondo about four. They spent a couple of hours in the plunge and then went to Clifton by the Sea, where they enjoyed the feast of weinies.

In track we had our three musketeers, Harold Stvenson, Ralph Har- der and Toshiaki Suminaga, with Stanley Creighton as manager. The Freshmen girls also took an active part in sports. Nine girls were on the basketball team and five on the volley ball team. Of course we had several stars in track also, Kathryn Ryan, Margaret Stafford, Margaret McDonald, Edna Richhart, Ethel Slye, and last, but not lest, Dorothy Hanson. The Freshmen were represented in the Scholarship Society by Mar- garet Richhart, Edna Richhart, John Young and Clarence Carpenter.

The B8 girls have held several candy sales to raise money for the Girls' League. An A8 section one party was held at the home of Miss Marguerite Jones at which everyone had a delightful time.

In the annual Constitutional Contest a number of good papers were submitted for approval at the semi-finals. Grace Denny tied for second place. Very good amateur talent was displayed by many of the class in "El Toroso," Mildred Austin playing a comedy lead. Elmer Riley and Orville Hemstreet assisted in skits at Boys' Stunt Nite. Toshiaki Shimatsu, Pedro Ros, Herman Knuckles, and Jesse Norene held positions on the junior high football team and made a good showing. Walter Johnston, Jesse Norene, Herman Knuckles and T-oshi- aki Shimatsu proved to be good material for future use on the basket- ball team. Lolo Cokeley defeated Betty McIntyre, Marjorie Huber and Nina Leslie in tennis semi-finals in the girls' tournament. At present she is leading Christine Hamman, 4 to 2. If she defeats the latter she will only have Johanna Neelands to play for the championship of the school.

Seventh Grade Owing to the large growth Of the student body this year it has been necessary to make the second edition of the Torch somewhat larger than the first. We hope that this Torch may cast a light on the yea1"s achievements which otherwise might be forgotten. Under the splendid supervision Of Miss Burnham the size of the book has been increased to enfold more fully every phase Of student life. With Miss Sunierwell in charge of the art work we feel as though the annual is not only complete in every detail, but exceedingly attractive in appearance. The Forty photography has been successfully achieved by the La Plante Studiog the excellent engravings elhciently made by the Commercial Art and Engraving Company of Los Angelesg and the printing neatly and clearly done by the Boulevard Print Shop of Los Angeles. The willing assistance of our advertisers has made the book possible. STUDENT SELF GQVERNMENT Officers First nS6'1IIfl'StCI' Second Semester CIIARLINE 'EDXVARDS . . . . .

At the opening of the school term each student was given a hundred merits. Some found it quite diflicult to keep these merits for there were many ways in which to lose them. But the majority of the students found that by living up to the simple standards of the school, it was com- paratively easy. There were also numerous ways in which to earn merits, thus giving everyone a chance to gain extra points. The self government officers who patrolled the upper and lower halls during classes also instituted a great improvement. In various ways the student self government has been helpful, which is entirely due to the genuine co-operation of the students and the faculty.

Kmrn TINSLEY The foundation of an organization moulds its future. The purpose to which the pioners of an institution devote themselves points to the success or failure of its establishment. This year has seen our school organization under a strong leadership and with a co-operative spirit. The Associated Students of Torrance High School have banded together in an attempt toward success in all fields. The student body, as usual, undertook to transact all business pertaining to the affairs of the students. Naturally resulting from the excellent school spirit, and the aid of the faculty, this particular organization was the instrument of many achievements and helped in every way to establish good stand- ards for the school. Forty-two The issuing of student body season tickets, for the first time this year, proved fairly successful. The ticket sold for one dollar and fifty cents a semester. It included football, basketball and the school paper. The first part of the second semester opened with a big drive, the cam- paign being sponsored by the salesmanship class with the capable help of Miss Marguerite Jones. A contest between the girls' and boys' leagues proves that the girls were the most efficient salespeople, result- ing in the boys giving the .girls a pa1'ty. The price of the ticket for the second semester was lowered to one dollar. It comprised track, base- ball and the paper. Throughout the term the student body has shown a greater interest in school affairs than in previous years. Torrance has never known a more successful year than this one and a great deal of this success can be attributed to the school organization and the exceedingly diligent work on the part of Mr. Wood, the principal.

MAURICE Frm: "To Promote Scholarship in Torrance High School" this was the purpose and goal of the scholarship society during the past year. The proof of its success is shown by the increase in membership, there being over thirty members throughout the year. This increase in itself shows the growth of interest in good scholarship, for high scholarship should be the aim of every student in a school. Five federa- tion pins were awarded to members of the senior class. Members of the scholarship society now receive certain privileges, give a stunt at a pay aud call, have a day off for an educational trip, and generally go to a convention every year. This fall a trip was made to Riverside. With these advantages, and with the honor of being a member of such a society, every student should aim to make a more determined effort to secure the grades necessary for membership. Forty-four SCIENCE CLUB With the ambition of stimulating interest in science by bringing here speakers on related subjects, the Science Club was formed. Meet- ings have been held twice a month. With the beginning already made it is expected that this organization will develop consistently. .P7'lfSllIl"IIf . . . TOM DOUGHERTY l'ice-Prfwiflcni . . RUSSELL ROBERTS Secretary . .

BoYN'1-oN During the second year of the Spanish Club the meetings held once a month have been very enjoyable. Interesting programs are given, and the members sing songs and play games in the Spanish language. It is a rather exclusive organization, as no one is allowed to join until he has spoken Spanish, or tried to, for a year. Their Scotch tendencies seem somewhat to subdue their tongues, as a penny fine is demanded for each word of English or other "foreign" tongue spoken at the meetings. Among other trips to entertainments in Los Angeles the most enjoyable one was the Festival of Nations at Polytechnic High.

Among the other things the boys have been doing is to prepare a plot of land in the mountains above Los Angeles for a cabin, which is to be owned by the school. It has been obvious that the Agricultural Club has done a great deal toward the advancement of school affairs . It looks forward to many achievements in the succeeding years.

Thus far it has proved a success with even better aims for the future. Forty-eight ff-'ft ART CLUB The Art Club is numbered among the new organizations of T. H. S. It was organized in March by the new art teacher, Miss Suinerwell. Under her supervision the art students are trained to develop not only their love for the beautiful, but to make practical use of it. Judg- ing by the drawings, it looks as if we are going to have some profes- sionals later. We are trusting that in the future years the club will grow and become a club that gives T. H. S. all the beauties of art. They are now making their constitution, Their object is to visit art galleries, to sketch, to attend plays with artistic settings, and to have a good time.

It has been printed by the school print shop and sup- ported by the advertising of local merchants. With stan efiiciency and the aid of the journalism class under the able supervisions of Miss Burnham, the paper has proven a real credit as well as a source of enjoyment to the student body. Fifty "LELAWALA" After having established an excellent reputation for their achieve- ments of the previous year, Mrs. Eischen and Miss Lingenfelter decided that the boys' and girls' glee clubs were capable of a more diflicult production than had ever been attempted by Torrance High. "Lelawala," a dramatic operatta by Charles Wakefield Cadman was chosen, and after six weeks of earnest work on the part -of all the production was ready. Mrs. Eischen and Miss Lingenfelter were in charge of the music and dramatic work. Miss Coller and Miss Phipps were responsible for the costuining, while the lovely stage and art work was supervised by Miss Sumerwell. This event took place on the evening of November nineteenth and .was thought by all to be one of Torrance's best productions. CCBAB77 On December 10, the Junior class presented "Bab", an unusually clever four-act play which was written by Edward Chald Carpenter from the novel by Mary Roberts Rinehart. Miss Millard was in charge of the production and all of the members -of the class co-operated in making the play a real success. THE C.-I ST Brin Ancmlmr n . . .

This play was called a joyous farce of gay adventure and was very different from any of the other plays given here. It took place at the Quackenbush country home and the beach of Tom-Tom island in the South Seas. It naturally called for picturesque settings and costuming which were planned by Miss Sumerwell. n The directors were Miss Mil- dred and Miss Lingenfelter. The class gave their best to its production and it was considered an excellent achievement by the patrons. It was also of very material financial benefit.

It has been established as an annual affair because of the previous excellent performance. Credit is due to Mrs. Eischen and Miss Lingenfelter, mus- ical directors and coaches, for the excellent portrayal of roles and fine chorus work. Mrs. Morse directed the dancing, while Miss Sumerwell and Miss Coller are responsible for bringing out a Spanish atmosphere in the stage setting and costumes.

An active program has been carried out by the Boys' Glee Club this year. Among the organizations on whose programs they have featured are: Rotary and Kiwanis Clubs, Woman's Club, Masonic League Instal- lation, and various High Sch-ool programs and Aud Calls. Their annual Boys' S-tunt Night was given the second week in May, two evening and one matinee performances. It was well received by the audience and gave the boys a chance to exhibit such original talent as they possessed. Needless to say it was fun for all, and of great finan- cial benefit to the music and athletic departments. Mrs. Eischen capably directs the boys of this popular organization. Fifty-sim ORCHESTRA Piano-Grace Buck, Nyla Tansey. Violin-Marie Evans, Jacqueline Treadwell, Lola Cokeley, Leona Johnson, Setsu Kiyomura, Clifford Ruppel, Nyla Tansey, Dorothy Wacker, Harold Fielder.

A staff of approximately twenty students has been employed during noon hour and has rendered efficient service as well as gained practical experience.

ITELL THE STUDENT BODY STORE The student body store, while it has been of great service to the school, has been sorely handicapped by its crowded quarters. It has provided the students with necessary supplies, and due to its efficient management has been of considerable financial aid to the student body. The staff for the past year was as follows: Marion Vieths, managerg Mary Guyan, Vivian Beckwith and Violet Crane, assistants, and Miss Marguerite Jones, supervisor. Next year it will be situated in much larger and more convenient quarters in the new building. Thus all are looking forward to a more successful year for the store.

Jones, Fiesel, and Richhart were all first string backfield men who will be hard to replace on next year's team. Captain Jones' line plunging helped whenever Torrance needed a few yards to go for first down. Jones also directed the team and kept his men at a fighting pitch. Richhart's fine interference helped the smooth running attack of our team. Fiesel's spectacular open field running proved to be the class of the backfieldg he seemed to be almost a non-stop on open field. Chandler, Risden, Dougherty, and Troost were the boys who carried the heavy line work. Troost, at end, played a strong defensive game as well as being very adept at snagging long forward passes. Chandler at tackle, playing his third year on the varsity, was easily the strongest player on the line. He followed the ball with an eye that did not fail to detect any fumbles, and held the opposing backfield men. Risden at guard, played a powerful game and broke through many times to break up formations before fairly started. Dougherty also, playing tackle, proved his Worth by his fighting spirit, Sixty-sin: 'lihe boys that will be the nucleus of our 1927 team are Buchman, Carpenter, Harder, Stevenson, Reynolds, McKinley, Baird, and Reeve. All of these men played well in their respective positions with plenty of snap, Buchman showing great skill in the open field. "On to bigger things" can truly be our football lTlOttO for the next year. Maybe a championship, who knows? October 1. Narbonne 7 - T. H. S. O. The Torrance High gridders drew as their first Marine League opponents the powerful Narbonne eleven. Hammock scored for Nar- bonne on the opening kick-off after running the ball back eighty yards for a touchdown behind perfect interference. The Red and Gray war- riors, playing a fine game, fought Narbonne to a standstill during the rest of the periods, but nevertheless they lacked the punch offensively to score. October 8. Banning 3 - T. H. S. O. Coach Mitchell's proteges played Banning next. During the first half, both teams fought hard,and as a result, the ball remained in the center of the field. At the beginning of the last half Banning carried the ball to TO1W1'2I.l'lC6,S twenty yard line where the Banning team failed to gain in three downs. On the fourth down the Banning halfback kicked a perfect goal. A fighting Torrance team that showed its first real power carried the ball straight down the field to Banning's two yard line, whe1'e they lost it with six inches to go for the first down. Banning kicked, and the Torrance boys were fighting hard to score when the whistle blew ending the game. - October 15. Torrance 12 -- Bell 0. Coach Mitchell's cohorts journeyed to Bell for their third league mix-up. The Bell team., although very light, proved to be fast and elusive. The Torrance boys followed the ball very closely, taking advan- tage of all the breaks which occured during the game. Chandler scored for Torrance, intercepting a pass and running seventy-five yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. Jones intercepted a Bell forward pass and carried the ball to Bell's two yard line, where he bucked it over for the second touchdown. Buchman failed to convert both times. The Red and Gray made their own breaks and won the game. October 22. Gardena 13 - Torrance 0. Playing the heavy Gardena gridders on the local gridiron, the Tor- rance pigskinners entered their fourth league game Without Fiesel, their Simty-sczven fighting halfback. The team fought the valley bays until they could hardly stand on their feet, holding the Green and White machine from scoring during the first half. Later, in the third quarter, Gardena scored their first touchdown by running the ball back forty yards from a punt. By sheer strength they scored again in the last quarter and converted. The gridiron warriors of T. H. S. fought a hard battle against overwhelming 'odds and gave their best. ' October 29. Torrance 13 - Jordan 0. The Torrance football team took on the Jordan huskies in their last league game. Playing on Jordan field, which was in very good condition for a fast game, our boys played the speedy Jordan team off their feet. The field line and the backfield functioned likea well-oiled machine. As the whistle blew ending the final game, our boys were fighting as hard as they had fought in their first encounter. Summary Thirty boys responded to Coach lVIitchel1's summons to uphold the Red and Gray colors for the 1927 season. These boys were determined to give their very best to old T. H. S. Around a few lettermen Coach began to build his team. Progress was very slow, and the Torrance pigskinners did not begin to show their real power until the last few games of the season. Every man fought to hold the standard high. Sixty-eight I j nl f 9 , P ff fr' me 1 i - -i i 1 . .luv H .mar k if ml". X .nv X .. . ax . - Q . ,jul X t , 2 . - ...ml ,A , au' . 1 '. 2 Z ' i u T. 'F BASKETBALL Basketball reached the highest pinnacle of success in Torrance during the 1927 season. Putting four teams on the floor to carry the standard of T. H. S. in the Marine League, two championships were won and two ties for first place in the other two divisions. All four teams fought hard for their dear old Alma Mater, and Were supported by the loyal students who turned out for every game and helped the teams to the victories with which this marvelous record was established. Coach Mitchell, the man who has put Torrance High on the athletic map, can be justly complimented for the exceptional record that he has established with Torrance basketball teams during the four years that he has been coaching here. Dec. 10, 1926. The Torrance High Fleas and Midgets journeyed to Bell and started the Marine League basketball season. Our fighting Fleas won a slow game from the Bell Fleas, 6-3. Not to be outdone by the Fleas, the T. H. S. Midgets subdued the Bell Midgets, 11-2. Dec. 17, 1926. Jordan High brought three quintets to Torrance to do battle with the Fleas, Midgets, and Varsity fives of our school. In the opening games our classy little Fleas brought the crowd to their feet when they tied their heavier rivals at the end of the game at 8-8 all. But in the extra period the Torrance Fleas demonstrated their superiority by outplaying the Jordan five and winning the game, 10-8. Our Midgets kept the Jordan boys on the jump throughout the game and won, 10-7. Both teams played a strong defensive game, but our boys were stronger on the offensive. The Torrance Varsity five completely swamped the Jordan quintet, 54-12, after four periods of fast passing and clever basket shooting. Von Hagen, Sleppy, and Phillips were the offensive stars of the game with Townsend working the tip-off plays from center to perfection. The Varsity five played together as a well-oiled machine with the result that Jordan was defeated, and Torrance had a perfect day with three victories. Jan. 6, 1927. The class D and C teams of Torrance encounte1'ed the Gardena D and C quintets on the Gardena court. The Fleas lived Simty-11.i11e up to their championship hopes and defeated the Gardena boys, 11-2, in a game of fast basketball after a hard battle. Starting oi the game with a bang, the Midget five from Torrance took the lead, but due to numerous penalties and a sudden burst of speed from Gardena the Torrance boys lost the game, 10-3. Jan. 7, 1927. The Lightweight quintet of Torrance played its first game of the season against the Gardena five. Our Light-weights played in mid-season form and defeated Gardena after a hard fought game, 12-9. Roberts and Ruppel at forward, and MQ1'1'it at running guard, were the stars of the game. The Torrance Varsity had to fight hard and then still harder to conquer the Gardena heavies, 28-10. The score does not indicate the hard fought battle the Torrance bo-ys had to win. It was not until the last half that the Torrance five rolled up its lead. The combination of Sleppy and Von Hagen at forwards and Townsend at center scored most of the Torrance baskets. Phillips and Long fought hard defensively and kept the Gardena team from scoring at will. Jan. 13, 1927. Our Fleas and Midgets played the Narbonne five at Narbonne. The Torrance Fleas took a slump during this game in not being able to sink their shots. Shot after shot the Fleas failed to make while the Narbonne boys took advantage of this and won the game, 9-6. ,With the defeat at the hands of Gardena still in their minds and the Fleas losing to Narbonne, our traditional rivals, the Midget five ran wild and submerged the Narbonne Midget five, 38-12, in a game that was a nightmare to Narbonne. Our boys made baskets from every possible angle at will, and played the Narbonne quintets off their feet. Jan 14, 1927. Narbonne came to Torrance en masse to support their Lightweight and Varsity lives. The two rivals met in the Light- weight game with both teams alternately taking the lead throughout the game, until in the closing minutes the Torrance five forged ahead and won the game, 12-9. Ruppel was the star for Torrance when he scored seven points. The team worked the ball to the basket but failed to score consistently. ' In the big contest of the day the Torrance and the Narbonne Var- sities met in a bitter struggle. The Torrance five took the lead at the opening of the game and managed to keep a jump ahead of the Nar- bonne five until the final whistle. Both teams played the game in top form and gave the rooters thrills by their clever passing attacks and ha1'd fought defense. The Torrance Varsity functioned at its best in their brilliant Victory over the Nar- Seventy IAGI-ITYVEIGINITS bonne five with Sleppy and Von Hagen at forwards, Townsend at center, and Phillips and Long at guards. Jan. 20, 1927 . The Banning class D and C teams met the Torrance five at Torrance. The Torrance Fleas, fighting mad over their .defeat at the hands of Narbonne, outplayed, outpassed, and outfought the Ban- ning team in their final game of the season and won an easy victory. The Torrance Midgets furnished the thrill of the day by lighting their way to a 13-12 victory over the Banning Midgets. Gaining an early lead the Torrance boys held Ion to it until the final whistle. The Midgets played their best game in whirlwind fashion and won it through their stubborn defense. Jan. 21, 1927. Torrance went to Wilmington to meet the Banning Lightweights and Varsity teams in the final games of the season. The Torrance Lightweights let the Banning five gain an early lead which they failed to overcome, losing the game, 15-13. The Torrance quintet fought hard to win in the closing minutes of the game, but the Banning lead was too great. The work of Captain Merritt helped to bring the score nearer to Banning's score, but the forwards failed to sink the winning basket. Se've11ty-one NIIDGETS With a determination to get revenge for the Lightweight defeat, the Torrance Varsity ran away from Banning at the lead and took the game by'a lopsided score, 51-7. The Torrance five held the game from the opening Whistle, and throughout the game scored at will. Four of the five regulars played their last game for Torrance against Banning. These men were Von Hagen, Captain Sleppy, Phillips and Long. Class "D" The Torrance High Fleaweight team won the Marine League Championship. The Fleas went through a successful basketball season, winning ten out of twelve games, a record of which to be proud. War- ren McMillan, the coach of our fighting Fleas, worked hard to make the Fleas a league championship team. He devoted much time to coaching the team and he can be justly proud of its record. The boys that made up the champion Fleaweights are: Orville Hudson, Richard Pullman, and LaDorne Hall, forwards, Ben Lepkin, centerg Howard Hudson and Robert Williams, guards. Captain Ben Lepkin at center will be l-ost by graduation, but all the other little men will be back next year to build another championship team. ' Seventy-two FLEAWVEIGIITS Class "Cv Our 'l'orrance High School Midgets iinished their basketball season in a tie with Bell and Gardena for first place. Through a league ruling Gardena won the cup. Much credit should be given to the team and to their coach. The Midgets started the season with a new team and it took them some time to be able to play together. The boys had a tough season and they played hard to win their division, failing to do so only by a league ruling. Those who made up the Midget team are: Harwood Clark and Dee Williamson, forwardsg Joe Townsend, centerg Raymond Flood, Robert Kembel, John Kolesar, and Captain Charles Ruppel, guards. Dee Williamson will be the only regular lost by grad- uation, so the Midgets will be well supplied with material for next year. Class "B" The Torrance High School Lightweights tied with Wilmington for the league championship, but Wilmington had defeated Torrance, thus winning the cup. The Torrance quintet played through a very successful season, holding victories over several large schools in practice games. The Lightweights played brilliant basketball at times, but slumped at Seven ty-three other times. This inconsistency lost the championship for them. The players on the Lightweight team are: Russel Roberts, Clifford Ruppel, and Alfred Pennington, forwards: Peary Quigley, centerg Captain Dale Merritt, Maurice Fyfe and Harold Cook, guards. Russel Roberts and Clifford will be lost at the forward position by graduation and Maurice Fyfe at guard. The loss of these boys will be felt keenly next year. Class ccA77 Winning all their league games the 'l'orrance High School Varsity basketball team finished the 1927 season with a clean slate, and won the Marine League championship. The Varsity holding victories over Comp- ton, Inglewood, Jefferson, and Manual Arts High Schools in practice games, demonstrated their power by defeating these la1'ger schools. The team throughout the entire season played a brand of basketball that would make any high school team work to defeat them. Going through the league schedule without a defeat in four games and scoring on an average of about thirty-five points a game was the record made by our Varsity. On the Torrance Varsity were three men that have played together for three years. These players were Captain Sleppy, forward, Ben Townsend, center, and Harry Phillips, guard, all three of which played on the Lightweight championship team last year. Captain Ray Sleppy, Richard Von Hagen, and Harry Phillips are all four year letter- men, while Eustus Long is a two year letterman. Ben Townsend, a three year letterman will beiback again next year. - Prospects for next season are Very bright for our basketball teams. With such a large turnout this year numerous other players became experienced, and with our new basketball gym Torrance should have an exceedingly successful season. Seventy-four Seventy-fue HEYAVYWEIGHTS 5 -I 1 1 4 XXXXNI 'U X-N 'ff xvxw . X- . 1 Q. '22-. f ' "lf fr 'I " Y F ! ' N142 I N ASERALL Although the 1927 baseball season has not been a success in the way of victories, Torrance High has played good ball and has gained valuable experience for next season. Starting off what seemed to be a successful season by defeating several Bay League teams in practice games, the prospects seemed very bright for more victories. Injuries to several players kept them from playing and the ineligibility of several more helped to break up the team Work that had been gained during the early practice games. These and the tearing up of our baseball field were handicaps that our players had to face. With all this against them the boys who carried the Red and Gray on the diamond gave their very best to the school. In dropping the first two games to Bell and Jordan, Torrance High showed very poor team work, and as a result of errors both teams won the games easily. In the Jordan game our boys regained some of their Seven ty-sim z batting strength, but due to errors lost the game. Our third encounter was with Narbonne High, ou1' deadly rivals. For the first time since the early practice games, Torrance played ball as they really could. Rallying in the eighth inning Torrance forged ahead, but lost their advantage and the game, when Narbonne rallied in the last inning, winning the game, 6-5. The boys who carried the standard of T. H. S. on the diamond were: Richard Von Hagen CCapt.D, Ray Sleppy, Bob Bordeaux, Robert Bart- lett, Harry Phillips, Joe Gianero, Ben Townsend, Johnny Fiesel, Joe Tavan, Warren McMillan, Ted Troost, Ralph Harder, Carl Jones, Jimmy McCoy, Maurice Fyfe, Frances Edmonds, and Hartley Carr. TRACK In not having a track or any available place to practice, the Torrance High track teams had a handicap that kept many boys from turning out for the team. It was necessary for our boys to go to other schools to get' any practice, which resulted in these meets. Credit should be due these boys who turned out willingly against handicaps and did their best for their Alma Mater. They had triangular meets with Redondo and Narbonne, Narbonne and Banning, Bell and Jordan, Gardena and Narbonne. In all these meets our class "C" and "A" teams were limited by the small turnout, but they did their utmost in every event they entered. Ray Sleppy and Russel Roberts were the individual stars of our team. Ray Sleppy copped third in the shot put and pole vault, while Russel Roberts took second place in the pole vault. Harold Stevenson grabbed a third in the broad jump in the class "C" diviison. With a four-quarter mile track and a two-twenty straight away being built, Torrance High School will be well equipped for track next year. Seventy-s1:11en at JUNIOR BAsIi1c'I'IsALI.
