They place it in the middle of the gym. Closely following them are the tearful seniors, each one carry- ing his respective belongings. Soon a crowd of students gather. Carefully wiping away all traces of tears, Ben I-Iannebrink mounts the table. Ben Hannebrink: Friends, Scotchmen, fellow-sufferers, lend me your ears. VVe come to sell our priceless treasures, not to bury them. The evil that we have done with them is to he allowed to live after us. The money collected today will go toward the senior gift-individual rubber-coated pads on which to park during gym classes. To start the ball rolling I offer to sell to anyone my faithful sousaphone. The person buying it will have the privilege of carrying it back and forth from school every day and may learn how to blow upon it from Mr. Crawford. What am I bid? Alan Renn bids five cents! Here you are, Fat. Yours for keeps! Lois Goddard: Students, a real bargain! I'm willing to sacrifice this special copy of True Romance that I've found so interesting to read during English class. A perfectly good copy except for a few coupons missing from the back. Ah, Beulah, l give it to you for two sticks of VVrigley's. Alfred Jaunsem: lVIy secret out at last! I'm offering to any lassie this jar of beauty cream of my own invention. Apply it every night as I've always done, and you will acquire rosy cheeks like mine. A guaranteed money-back proposition. Who is this blushing maiden who makes the bid of 25 cents! Oh, yes, Oma Beckwith. La Dorn Hall: Here is my bright orange tie. Genuine silk from the cocoon. I'll give it to anyone who will have the nerve to wear it. Put? Did I hear you speak? Right, my boy, you may have it to wear with your purple sweater. lVIildred Bell: Will anyone buy me out? I have 500 pounds of paper here, a most complete collection of middle and skirt records and demerit slips: don't all speak at once, please. CSilence.l Alack! this student body is devoid of charitable beings. Ethel, Ethel, come to my rescue, quick! Catherine lVIullin: Economics clippings! just the thing for people contemplat- ing taking ec. next semester. A complete set-that is, er, nearly complete. lVIost valuable collection of data for prospective economists. Who,ll give a good price for the goods? Charles Faulkner gives a whole dollar! Fine! I'm glad my taking eco- nomics has done my class some good, even if it did no good to me. Helen 'l'ouvell: My offering is a rare specimen of an art appreciation note book. A glamorous and heterogenous color effect on the cover and a unique type of hand printing within the book. Perhaps a little illegible at spots, but what bearing has that, considering' the originality of the whole. Here's your chance, you freshmen! Richard Burr offers I5 cents! Itls worth more, but I'1l let it go at a sacrifice, since he's a deserving lad. john Clark: This morning I brought a TOSC-I1 most perfect one-to V. D., but she wouldn't accept it, so having resolved never more to give flowers to any female, I sell to anyone this rose. It has taken a fortune to raise it in my garden, I19I I E!-El wanna :'l:uE:r.l::l-ul: but since it has been the means of breaking my heart, I'l1 sell it for anything. Who bids? Forest Pingel gives 20 cents. Sounds fishy, but I guess his intentions are good. Josephine Lupo: Pointers on how to translate Spanish. This should come in handy to students having difficulty in that particular language. Pay a good price and save yourself E's later on. Who bids? Grace Buck gives 10 cents. Alfred Pennington: A well-known horse laugh will be gone forever from the portals of this school if no one takes this chance of buying it. No need to describe its particularly appealing idiosyncrasies-everyone should recognize it who has ever been at aud calls. Any offers for the said natural gift? Let me have airg Toshiaki Sumi- naga is going to buy me out! 31.00. Too good, any way. Elwood Nahmens: No one has ever found out, but just the same I'1'n an agile terpsichorean artist. This trait will do me no good in my old age, so l'm leaving it to anyone who has gotten into the habit of swearing on a dance Hoor, provided he pays for it-I mean the dancing ability, not the swearing part. Frank Psaute bids 25 cents. It's worth more to you than that in the long run, Frank. Give me 50 cents. Eunice Tansey: lVIy curly locks have been the envy of many a student, and I'll will them away to anyone who pays the balance of the permanent. Who bids? John Young trades in his constitutional essay for them. Cheerio, Johnny! you will be a lady's man in no time. Robert Bartlett: Prospective Romeos, here is your chance. This past year, I've been busy writing a book on how to culminate a successful love affair, and now l'm ready to offer my supreme masterpiece. What am I bid? Ed Paramore bids one dollar! 'I'hat's a boon to ou1' cause. Vivian Daugherty: Having nothing worth while to offer, I leave my kid brother to any unsuspecting female who is willing to pay the price.

A jolly pal, with a cheery smile, No task was too small for him to attend. When anyone needed help from him None could have found a truer friend. His life here was full of sunshine and joyg His music held promise of greatness and fame. And now that he dwells in that heavenly home We'll cherish his memory and honor his name.

Our boys have been active in football, Louie Briganti acting as manager for the season. In basketball we had two Fleas, eight Midgets, one Light, and two on the Varsity. Bert Merrill and Alfred Mintun were Class A in track, and we had six in Class C. Bert Merrill is second high senior in the United States in Junior Olympics. Another line which has interested our members is the Agricultural Team work. Ribbons have been brought to the trophy case as awards in contests. Wliile we have done nothing particularly outstanding as a class, we have been storing up wisdom and experience in preparation for our upper class responsibilities.

In the Constitu- tional Contest the three prizes went to members of this class: First, Hazel Brineyg second, Jean Wlieatong third, Jean Tolson. Section 2, A8, boasts of several athletes. George Figuredo took part in the relay and low hurdles, and was first in shotput for the Junior High. Raymond Rogers came in first in the low hurdles and was in the relay. Four or five boys will undoubtedly make the football team next season. The girls of the class won the Girls' League pennant for the best middy and skirt record. Helen lVIclVlaster represents this class in the league. In both. the track and the baseball, When the school's beginning to lose, Comes the Eighth Grade team to the rescue, And what it can do,-it proves.

H I 1 V Q SEVENTH GRADE The winter class of 1935 CB7J entered Torrance High School February 1, 1929, and are looking forward to doing big things for T. H. S. in their career of the next six years. There are 42 members of the class. The Section 1 president is Jean Thompson, and the class advisor is Miss Lois Lingenfelter. The class advisor for Section 2 is Mr. Burchett. As there is little history, all we can do is look ahead. We A7's have been here at Torrance one year. When we came up here our class was so large that it was divided into three sections. Altogether, there are 94 of us. Our boys have taken an actire part in sports. Jimmie Miller won first place of the Juniors in the district finals of Junior Olympics. Several of our members took part in pyramid building also. Everyone in the class donated popcorn for the carnival. We had so much that there will be enough for next year. Section 3 sold gay colored caps at the carnival. We made the caps after school and at each others' homes. Harriett Kenney was in charge of the booth. We think everyone will always find our class ready to help in all activities for the betterment of our school. E331 H EPE S wanna FRIEEIQSI-ll?

Though large enough journalism and print shop classes enrolled, the subscriptions from the students did not warrant a more frequent publication. As usual, the paper was sup- ported largely by the generous business men, who each year make possible our publi- cation. In spite of the diligent efforts of the advertising managers, the T. N. T. had a deficit most of the year, making it impossible to use more cuts in the current editions. In the second quarter the paper was increased in size by one-fourth, and a new head was made for the front page. Special editions were prepared upon the arrival of the new boys' coach, Miss Kunkel's return from Europe, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Fathers' and Sons' Night, May Carnival, and Commencement. i371 l El-El O 'avoir-xl.: FRIENZSFIIF5 A W First Semester TVIERRITT BRADSHAW - JOE TOWNSEND - - MARJORIE YAMAMOTO STUDENT COUNCIL OFFICERS - 'President - Vice-President - - Secretary - EDNA RICHHART ------ Treasurer - - - JOHN YOUNG - - ORVILLE HUDSON - JACK Ross - - - HOW.ARD HUDSON - DOROTHY BARRETT - PAUL WELSCH - - HAROLD COOKE Commissioner of Oral flrts Commissioner of Athletics - Advertising Manager - Boys' Self-Government Girls' Self-Go-vernment - - - - T.

During the course of the year several functions were attended by representative members. Among these were the banquets at Gardena High School and Woodrow Wilson High School, and the State Convention at Los Angeles. A half-day Ditch Day was granted the members in the middle of March. They took this Opportunity to drive down to Brookside Park, where all the members indulged in a variety of sports, displaying ability in pursuits other than studies. Among the illustrious members of this select organization are Richard Sinclair, W'29, and John Young, S'30. Both have Won honors in the field of oratory, the former having received second place in the district finals of the constitutional contest in 1928, and the latter having placed first in the district finals in 1929. In the -graduating class of '28, Margaret Tiffany, Tatsuo Inouye, and Doris Spoon were awarded life membership to the California State Federation, and in the class of W'29, Richard Sinclair, president of the class, and Merritt Bradshaw, presi- dent of the study body, gained similar honors.

Everyone had fun playing games in the gymnasium. At Thanksgiving and Christmas the girls showed a splendid spirit by helping to fill baskets of food for needy families. The first semester closed with a "Kid Party" for all high school girls. Every one came dressed in children's clothes. The project of the League for the second semester was to beautify the Study Hall. Each class earned money with the object of carrying out its idea. On May third a carnival was held in the gymnasium, which was sponsored by the Girls' and Boys' Leagues. Miss Tiffany was the gypsy fortune teller for the Girls' League. The carnival was the largest and most successful event of the year, and will probably be held annually hereafter. On May ll, Mildred Bell and Ethel Ward went to Claremont to the Girls' League Convention. For the completely successful year, the League is indebted to Miss Parks, who has been the guiding star of the organization since its foundation in 1925. c:'1l1l::o BOYS' LEAGUE OFFICERS ORVILLE HUDSON - - ----- - - - President GEORGE KYLE - - - Vice-President JOHN KOLESAR - - - Secretary JOHN CLARK -------------- Treasurer The Boys' League WQIS established to bring about a closer fellowship among the boys of T.

The purpose of this group is to strive for world peace through individual understanding and closer friendship among all students. At each monthly meeting a novel program was planned and executed, at which time the members both enjoyed and learned things worthwhile pertaining to the study of different nations. In February a joint meeting was held with the Schumann Society in the form of a Chinese banquet in "Little Tokio," the japanese section of Los Angeles. Unusual concoctions of meat and rare vegetables were served, all of which proved to be palatable. The clubs were very fortunate in procuring, as speaker for the evening, Doctor Ken Nakazawa of the University of Southern California, professor of oriental history of music and art. The Federation of Los Angeles City High School World Friendship Clubs sponsored their annual banquet at the Alexandria Hotel on March 8, at which occa- sion four hundred people gathered. This affair was attended by a group of Torrance john Young I-Inward Schmid Ralph Daugherty Alfred Pennington Harlan Barrett Ralph Sach Robert Huflfman students and the advisor of the club, Mrs. Grace Granger.

Membership to the organization is limited to boys who have won varsity letters in any field of sports. The purpose of this club is to foster all measures that make for the Welfare of the school, promote athletics, and, ultimately, to create a broader bond of sympathy among the fellows. An example of the fine way in which these boys execute their projects was their presentation of "Stella" at the lVIay carnival. Much comment was made upon their experienced manner of handling this affair. Alumni members may be admitted to the club when recommended and voted in by the members.

JONES, Sllf1f'I'7Ji.S'0l' The Student Store, thanks to the generous support of the school, has increased, and the gross sales total considerably above last year's amount. lVIany new items of stock have been carried, as the store always tried to meet or anticipate the needs and wishes of its patrons. The entire stock of notebooks, fillers and scratch pads now bear the Torrance Torch on gray covers. thus giving Tor- rance boys and girls a distinctive container for the knowledge imparted to them in the class rooms. During the fall term the store was under the management of Harold Cook. Upon his graduation, Irene Burmeister assumed the general management, with Catha- rine IVIullin as stock manager. Cinli PRINT SHOP CREW For the first time in the history of Torrance High the Print Shop has run full time. This has made possible better organization of this department. Frank Russell is shop foreman for the T. N. T. Other shop foremen are: Ray Schumacher, Jack Shinn, and Doris VVood. The enlarged edition of the T. N. T. was originated in the print shop. All the mechanical work on the school paper, with the exception of the linorype, and all of the school printing are done in the shop. New equipment has been ordered, therefore the department is looking forward to a very successful future. Cillllib L I THE CAFETERIA Another year has passed successfully, and the cafeteria has no deaths to its dis- credit. The regular patrons will readily agree that under the able supervision of IVIrs. Bell the food in our cafeteria comes as close to being "mother's cooking" as is possible. Of course, we must not forget Mrs. Bell's assistants, lVIrs. Chaplin and Mrs. Haslam, nor the student help, in their new "caps and gowns." In the coming year the cafeteria expects to change its quarters to the basement of the auditorium, so that it may give a maximum of service to the students of Torrance High. 11130 JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL BOOK CLUB The initial meeting of the Junior High School Book Club was held in the second week of December, at which Miss Mills, the sponsor, took charge. R. R. C. repre- sents the name that has been chosen for the club. It is necessary to read at least one book in order to End out the meaning of the name. In the library a party was given to members of the club, at the second. meeting. Miss Mills has planned a surprise for every meeting. As it is 11012 hard to become a member, all the Junior High girls and boys are encouraged to join.

They have tried to fulfill the purpose of their club by sponsoring good musical programs for the school as well as the city. This society made it possible to again bring the Dixie Jubilee Quartet to Tor- rance. They also-arranged transportation to grand operas, light operas, and other musical entertainments. The members of the Cosmopolitan Club and the Schumann Society have tried to cooperate. Several times they have held joint meetings, which helped to vary the programs for both societies. The most interesting joint meeting was a reception given to Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Wriglit, the former a recently married member of the faculty. Wedding costumes and ceremonies of various countries were discussed, accompanied by the appropriate music. Several doll-brides in native dress were displayed.

The group has been unusually large this last semester. Under the supervision of lVIrs. Eischcn, and with the aid of John Young, its accomplished accompanist, the club has made successful appearances before assemblies and civic organizations.

"BILLY" The play "Billy," presented by the Juniors, was the biggest hit of the season. The action took place at sea, en route to Hawaii. It centered around a set of false teeth and was replete with clever lines and witticisms. Clarence Carpenter, the hero, is determined to win the fair heroine's hand, in spite of her mother and his rival. Previous to the voyage it was necessary for him to have four false teeth to replace some which had been knocked out in a football game. Since they were in front, he lisped when they were out. "Beatrithl" He loses them, of course, and has a sad time dodging his sweetheart until he recovers them. But with the aid of his sister, he gets them back at the auction on board ship. Due to the careful consideration given to the choice of each member of the cast, and the excellent coaching and untiring efforts of lVIrs. hdorse, the success of the production was assured at the start.

Even though he is troubled with his liver and has hardly any musical ability, he wins the heart of Violet Pinney. Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler were the typical man and wife. Bobbie and Cora, as brother and sister, put on some awful scraps. Miss Finney took good care of Cora, and also took good care that Clarence Wasn't captured by anyone but herself. Orville Hudson played the part of Mr. Stem with plenty of confidence. Virginia Rowell acted as Mrs. Martyn, secretary to Mr. Wheeler.

A w WORLD FRIENDSHIP AN EXPLANATION or THE THEME or THE 1929 TORCH The End Sheet is very interesting, with its borders of national costumes and corresponding architecture. The architecture has been carefully chosen in order to identify the nationality of the figures. Old Father Time, holding the world in his hands, and surrounded by small panels, signifying the four seasons of the year, composes the motif for the Ex Libris. The Torch, beloved symbol of Torrance High School, has been treated in a very decorative way and affords an interesting Title page. The Dedication page exhibits a design of ships of modern and ancient design, showing means of communication between nations. The words on this page were written by Olive Robinson and Dorothy Eshom. The Running Head adorning most of the pages shows a border of Hags in the international code of signals. Under these are the words, "VVorld Friendship," the theme of the annual. Each Hag stands for the letter found directly under it. The Foreword is devoted to the United States and its emblem, the eagle, which is called the king of birds. Since the aft work was to be divided among the continents, Asia was chosen for the contents. A general idea of people and architecture in China is the motif, The Alma Mater exemplifies North America. It is an interesting design taken from the new University of the Air, at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This marks a new development in the progress of universities, as this is the first skyscraper university in the world. For the faculty, tools of diplomacy have been chosen, pen, ink, and paper, the fundamentals of education, and to a great extent of business, are displayed. The Literary division sheet has been given over to the continent of Europe, since we look to Europe for our fine arts. The suggestion for the design came from a structure in Berlin, massive and expensive in its beauty. Africa is an open field for new activities, and is alive with new industries, thus it is the continent chosen for activities. The motif is a fine example of architecture in Morocco, characteristic of Africa. To Australia has been given the division sheet that deals with one of the most important phases of school life, athletics. At the bottom of the sheet is the develop- ment of a modern Australian city. Above is a design of the Australian bushmen, doing a weird and fantastic fire dance. The football, basketball and baseball headings are simple, yet effective, displaying the flag of the country where the game originated. Islands of the sea are depicted on the Humor page. It explains itself and intro- duces suggestions of primitive architecture. A A South American skyline with a very picturesque design of a scene in that con- tinent is the theme for the Advertisement section. We look to South America for commerce, thus the introduction of the steamer. Polar Regions are shown in the Finis and give a very realistic picture of the cold, barren wastes of the North. The quotations throughout the book are selected from the words of famous poets of the world. ' T641 E1 13 WORLD F'F!lEhlB5l-Ill! THE GARDEN OF LONG AGO Firxt flufard in Literary Context ' Heart of my heart, when the clouds hang red O'er a shimmering, sunlit sea, And the weary hours of the day have fled, I-last ever a thought of me? Is there never a star at twilight's close, Or a wave that ripples the Sea, Or a memory hid in the heart of a rose To whisper, my love, of thee? To whisper as softly as falling dew, As the evening shadows grow, Of a love that only the roses knew In the garden of long ago. Hush! 'Tis the wind of the night that sings A lyric, wild and free. It carries a dream on its shadowy wings, Oh! heart of my heart, to thee. BEULAH Cooveiz, '30. cznlzo HONORABLE MENTIGN A LYRIC Brooklets go dancing, Entrancing my heart.

I'd sail to all the foreign ports-to England, Spain, and France, And to all the other countries, if I ever got the chance. I'd visit in the orient and every place, almost, I'd even go to Africa and sail along the coast. I'd like to see the Eskimos, their igloos all of iceg Then next, to see Hawaii would really be quite nice. At last, of course, Ild sail back home, for there I'd happy beg America is, after all, the only land for me.

Then lVIars did give a mirthless laugh That rang through every vale and hill. The countries shivered, drew apart, And then came War and thoughts to kill. No longer did the countries walk Together, but with hate and spite VVithin their heartsg they went alone, And Peace, the angel, took her flight. The years passed on, and famine came, And flood and fire took their tollg And still the countries walked apart And travelled towards a separate goal. One country stumbled, almost fell, He cried out, in his grief and pain, "Oh, brother mine, across the way, Forget, and be my friend again!" Witli tears they pledged themselves anew, And Peace returned unto the landg Old lVIars did Hee, and then once more Two countries travelled, hand in hand. VIRGINIA ROWELL, '29. I 67 l F53 El-lil. wanna FRlEhl25l-Ill-5 HOW THE TURTLE GOT HIS SHELL By MARY PECKHAM Nlany, many, many and many centuries ago there li.ved on the great hotish, sandish, windish desert some slow, poky, brownish-colored animals called turtles. Now these turtles didn't have shells as they do now, so, of course, they stayed out of every- one's way so they wouldn't be stepped on. On the edge of this great, hotish, sandish, windish desert there was a sculptor making a beautiful statue of a girl. He was using a sort of clay that hardened very quickly. It could be scraped off of whatever it was on, but if it wasn't scraped off very soon after it was hard, it would always be on whatever it was on. Soon the statue was finished and the sculptor was so happy he just threw the clay that was left over away. Very soon after this out from the very middle of the great, hotish, sandish, windish desert came one of the slow, poky, brownish-colored turtles. Of course, it was only natural for the turtle to step right into the middle of the clay and roll over and over in it until he had a sort of shell. He was quite angry at himself for getting into the clay. And so from that day to this turtles all have hard, hard, hard, hard and harder shells to protect them from everything but being made into soup.

El-l-3, s wang: rl:uzr.ll::l-ul: NATIONAL ORATORICAL CONTEST ON THE CONSTITUTION First Place in Marine League-Finals THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR CONSTITUTION The desire for liberty has been foremost in the hearts of all men in all ages. Since the day the Egyptians made slaves of the Israelites, men have looked upon liberty as a heavenly light, an attainable goal. History is filled with man's attempts at liberty, which were ground under the heel of oppression. But man was destined one day to realize his dreams. Liberty first dawned for the Anglo-Saxon race when the IVIagna Charta was wrung from the unwilling hand of old King John on the field of Runnymede. Oliver Cromwell obtained more free- dom for the common people when he drove his worthless ruler from the throne. It was that burning desire for liberty that sustained Washington,s army at Valley Forge. For that same liberty the French peasants stormed the Bastile. From the days of Txflilgllfl Charta to- the Declaration of Independence, liberty had been developing. In the year 1776, the American Colonies, in the face of a hostile world, declared their independence and won their freedom. When the smoke of the Revolution had cleared, confusion and distrust prevailed. In this chaotic atmosphere a calm body of men met and formulated one of the greatest documents this world has ever known. "The most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man," Gladstone termed our Constitution when it had proved its worth for one hundred years. For a long time it has been a common belief that it was a marvelous inspiration, and that it was the most wonderful work ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of Man. The generally accepted theory was that the greater part of our Constitution was invented by the convention of 1787. Historical research proves that nearly every provision in the Federal Constitution had its origin in British or colonial documents. The great achievement of the conven- tion was not c1'eation, but an adaptation of former experiences to existing conditions. The hardy pio-neers who came to our shores in the seventeenth century were the privileged heirs of the political traditions of England. Wliile the Constitution of the United States is very much more than an adaptation of British Law, yet its under- lying spirit was that of the English speaking race and the common law. Behind the framers of the Constitution, as they entered -upon their momentous task, were the mighty shades of Simon DeIVIontfort, Bacon, Eliot, Nlilton, and Locke. The framers of our Supreme Law were wise-too wise to draw upon their imaginations or create a government on theo1'y. Uur Constitution is a result of slow, laborious and painful evolution. This very fact is the greatest tribute to the far-sighted craftsmen of the Federal Convention, for, had it not been rooted deeply in the experience of the new nation, it could not have withstood the march of time. Was there ever a Constitution like this-a Constitution affording the humblest citizen equal rights and privileges with the most powerful-a Constitution carrying out the will of the majority, yet safeguarding the rights of the minority? Never before had any people set up over themselves a government that derived all its powers from the consent of the governed. The Founders of our Republic knew the motives that control the minds of men, they were familiar with the forces that had caused the rise and fall of empires. Greece, in her mad clamor for liberty, forgot the need of strength that union brings. Rome encouraged union and nationality until her liberty was choked off. There had before been government without liberty, and liberty without governmentg the framers of our Supreme law were the first to strike a per- manent balance between these opposing principles. E691 I El-13 , wanna :-lzuszunsl-nl: ORATORICAL The vitality of our Constitution lies in the fact that, by judicial interpretation, amendment, and use of the elastic clause, it may be adapted to the ever-quickening changes of the most progressive age in history. Withorxt these provisions for the future welfare and progress of our nation, our Supreme Law would become mere words upon a scrap of parchment. Let us beware of useless amendments, and remem- ber the warning of our renowned statesman, Daniel Webster, who reminded us: "Remove not the ancient landmark which thy fathers have set." Wliat was the magnet that drew the Pilgrim from England, the Protestant from Germany, and the Hugenot from France? It was religious freedom, offered by our Constitution. The United States is considered the most prominent among the nations of the earth today. Why? Gur Constitution, with its principles of Liberty, Free- dom, and Justice, has transformed our country from thirteen diversified colonies to one mighty commonwealth. Why have so many foreign republics used our Constitu- tion as a model? The Constitution of the United States is the most perfect the world has ever known. Why are the immigration quotas of the United States always full? Our Constitution offers the working man the highest standard of living on this globe. So well was our Constitution formed that it has withstood the stress and shock of civil war, a storm that no other Constitution ever successfully weathered, and maintained its equilibrium for more than a century and a quarter of unexampled social, civil, and material advancement, in which it has been the controlling force. Wherever our flag of battle has been raised, our purpose has been to relieve suffering humanity. From the first volley of Hint lock muskets at Bunker Hill, to that day in the Argonne Forest, when the news of the Armistice was received, American men have fought and died for the ideals of liberty. And yet, we of today's generation, who call ourselves Americans, are unconcerned and indifferent about the guarantee of that liberty that was bought with the blood of our countrymen. Oh, for a national leader to infuse into the people a sense of responsibility of the ballot, if our government is to continue successfully! Our Constitution is not self-perpetuating. If it is to remain our Supreme Law it will be because it has public support. The development of our Constitution is not completeg we must keep step with Progress. The law of the ox-cart cannot govern the airplane. Ladies and gentlemen, your part in the preservation of your own Con- stitution is to go to the polls on election day and cast an intelligent ballot. Unless the American people awaken to their responsibility of suffrage there is a manifest danger that, within the lives of those now living, the end of organized government, as we have known it for more than one hundred and forty years, will be at hand. As long as your Constitution remains intact, your press will have freedom of publication and distribution. You may worship in any church you wish, and the dOO1'S of that church cannot be closed against you. The government cannot sell nor confiscate your property without due process of law. You may not be cast into prison Without a trial by a jury of your peers. No Federal officer may cross the threshold of your home without a search warrant. Let me repeat, my friends, as long as your Constitution remains intact your liberty and your rights are assured. Let us bequeath it to our children, as it was handed down to us, unmarred by useless amendments, majestic in its powerful simplicity. JOHN Youxro, '30. E701 Elllil SYDRI-D FQIEHZSI-ll? CITY FEDERATION WORLD FRIENDSHIP CONTEST Fourth Place, RICHARD SINCLAIR FOR-BUT ALSO BY-THE PEOPLE The record of man's achievements on this planet bears one eternal stigma which can never be effaced-the crimson stain of war remains, an everlasting reproach upon the morality of the human race. Since the blood of Abel first cried reproach upon the guilty hand of Cain, this earth has been deiiled with the blood of human beings slain by their fellowmen. Might has made right for thousands of years. International disputes have always been settled on the battlefield, by the rule of terror and force. Clamoring for aggression or revenge, nation has risen against nation, and then this earth has trembled with the tramp of marching armies, and rung to the clash of swo1'ds and the shouts of War-mad men. And when the death-blast has been turned off, when the tide of agony has been stemmed, when the guns have been stilled, and peace has come for awhile, men have turned to their desolated fields and to the smoking ruins of their cities, and they have wondered what it was that drew them from peaceful firesides and happy families into the blinding, raging, devastating maelstrom of vifar. And who pays the price of all this? The people-the masses-and, finally, the individual! Power-mad war-lords, controlling the destinies of nations, may declare war, but it is the individual who goes forth to suffer and to die. It is the individual who solves the problem of reconstruction. The tax-money wrung from the individual citizen satisfied the ravages of greedy Mars. In 1914, there broke upon the world a storm of blood and fire, which, in fright- fulness, in awful havoc wrought, made all previous international conflicts pale into insignihcance. Think of the billions of dollars wasted-thrown away-in the four terrible years of that gigantic struggle! Think of the fathers, brothers, husbands, who never returned! Think of the millions who did survive that horrible shambles of death and who today lie on hospital beds, shattered in body and mind and soul! Think of the children made fatherlessg of the Widows bereaved! Think, and you will realize why it was that the whole world rose in rebellion against the uselessness of it all, and as with one accord cried, "It must never be again!" From that hour to this, the revolt against the barbarism among nations has been steadily growing, until now the determination to stamp out the curse of war and achieve just and lasting peace is universal. Like other great moral reforms, the peace movement has had to pass through its days of trial and doubt and misunderstanding. Pioneers have had to blaze a trail through ignorance and prejudice. Diplomats have had to labor at conference tables and work out plans for the protection of human society against war. But such treaties are mere scraps of paper without the energizing force of public opinion to sanction them and make them into living documents. Now, the great testing is come. The question of Whether or not all men can live together in harmony is to be submitted to the final mandate-the will of the people. As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. As a nation thinketh in the hearts of its men and women, so is that nation. Therefore, you and l, because we are America, must do America's thinking. Public E711 Elllil :vor-u.l:a :'l:uzr.l::l-ull: opinion does count! Wlietlier' we think constructively or destructively, in terms of peace, or in terms of war, our government will act accordingly! Men and women of America, we can end war in our time if we will but do our part! You ask "What is our part? What can we do to hasten the realization of World peace? First, there must come a change within ourselves. How can we expect inter- national harmony if we practice selfishness and lawlessness in our own lives? We must banish greed and race prejudice from our own hearts, before we can say to those of other lands, "Let us be brothers." We must realize that war is not an actual part of the universe. War' is a spirit, an attitude, a way of thinking. It is man-made and man-controlled. And if it is man-controlled, it can be ended by man. Next, We must deny that war is inevitable. The creed of the militarist is, "I believe in the necessity of war." And on that assumption, the war system is built. The past has shown the individual to be essential to any kind of warfare. If an enlightened World public would declare that War is not unavoidable, and would refuse to go forth to battle, would War be possible? And then, we must cease to think of peace as the absence of war, but as a posi- tive condition of world friendship. We must seek a sympathetic understanding of other peoples. This essential spirit of goodwill must be born in the hearts and minds of the people, but, if the goal of world amity is ever to be reached in our time, we must go farther. We must have energetic perseverance and daring. Peace for the world must be of and for the people, but also by the people. My friends, peace will not come to us. Peace must be Won. We have seen the cruelty, the futility, the stupidity of war, but that is not enough. We must achieve peace. We must think, act, organize peace! For nineteen hundred years, the Christmas chimes have rung out, acclaiming Him who is the Prince of Peace. And for nineteen hundred years, we have listened in vain for the mighty anvil chorus signifying the beating of swords into plovvshares. But now, at last, the dawn of the long-awaited day is at hand-the day when the tides of history shall be turned into happier channels, when the nations shall learn war no more, when there shall be "Peace on earth, goodwill to men!"

He also coached at Belmont High School near San Francisco, winning championships in football, track and swimming. Later he coached at Oakland High School, and turned out several successful teams. Q lVIr. Nylander is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley and played under the late Andy Smith, three years under "Gloomy Gus" Henderson, and a year under Knute Rockne, famous Notre Dame mentor. ln 1927-28, "Sig" was director of lVIunicipal Sports of the city of Los Angeles, and had charge of the Junior Olympics. "Sig" is a member of the L. A. Athletic Club and his basketball team won the A. A. U. championship. This year he has com- plete charge of the Junior Olympic State Finals. In 1929 Torrance won the district championship in the Junior Olympics. Even if he hasn't turned out any other championships, he has instilled a new spirit into the Student Body of T. H. S. Here's wishing you luck for next year, "Sig" joe "SLIM" TAVAN Joe has played one year on the squad, but still has two years to go. He went great on the defense and offense this year and is expected to go well in the next two seasons. Though he played tackle this year he may get a trial at the backfield next year. Keep up the hard scrapping, Joel EARL "DUKE" TAVAN Earl played his first year on the other tackle and will probably hold down that berth next season. He may get a trial at end for he is tall and sure can snag the passes. WILLIAM "WILLIE" AGAP1To "Willie" played his first year at half-back and has three years to go yet. He shows great promise, and next year "Sig" will have him rounded into a hard-hitting, line- smashing back. "Willie" played good, clean, hard football this year, and is eager to go next season. PAUL "OscAR" WELSCH "Oscar" has played two years for the varsity. He was moved in from end this year to play tackle and then went to center, where he played consistent ball. He was under hre constantly and did well. His only regret is that he hasr1't a few more years at the pivot position, for it's great. 'FOSHIAKI "PROP" SUMINAGA "Prof" has played at end and guard for two years and has one more to go. Prof is a scrapper on both defense and offense and death on fumbles, as he demonstrated in all the games. What he lacks in size, he makes up for in fight. Coach Nylander can use him to great advantage next season. E751 Elllil . wanna FRIENBSI-ll? EGBERT UBERTH M ERRILL This is Bert's first year, but he played like a veteran and has three years more of varsity competition. "Bert', played a great brand of ball and was continually breaking through to down our opponents behind the line of scrimmage. He played at end, tackle and guard this year, so we can expect him to Star in one of these three positions next year. HOXN'ARD "Torn ,IQOTTEN Totten played his first season in the backfield and has three more years to be eligi- ble for athletics. He plays a fine, hard game, and all he needs is more experience. He will be out next season though, and some of the big fellows had better watch their positions. ROY "MACH MCREYNKJLDS K'lVIac" played under a great handicap, but all the teams knew when he smacked them. He played two years at guard and worked hard at that position. Sig will have a hard task finding a man with his courage for guard. "Mac" graduates this year and the Whole squad is sorry to lose him. ROBERT "Bos" BARTLETT "Bob" played two years of hard, well-played football and we are sorry to see him graduate. He alternated at tackle and full-back and broke through many a time to smash the opponents before they were under way. On the offense, when "Bob" got rambling, he was hard to stop, as any team in the league will say. ALFRED "AL" lVIINTUN, Captain-dest "Al" has played end two years and shows plenty of Hghtg in his next two years more will be heard of "AL" just look into the heart of every play and number "IO" is Al. He and Harold Stevenson tied for the Captaincy, so they will share honors in the following season. Good luck, "AL" CAPTAIN "JoHNN1E" REYNOLDS A heart of steel, a never say die spirit and a good knowledge of the game, all go to make up "our Captain." He has played four years for the varsity and has fought from the first whistle. We are sorry to see him leave. A mighty player on defense and offense. RICHARD "DICK" WALLER This was "Dick's" first ear out and he certainl was enthusiastic about it. He y n y u a regrets that he didn't Come out before. A'D1ck" graduates in June, otherwise he would be out in a suit next season. He played well on the defense and never quit fighting. He played guard and tackle this year and thinks it's great sport. AL HPENNYH PENNINGTON He played his three years at end, half-back and quarter-back. He was outstanding on the defense and offense and was a great safety man. This is "Penny's" last year and Coach Nylander will have a hard time getting a man to fill 'fAl's,' shoes. Penning- ton was also high point man on the team. i761 l 1 1 1 n I wanna rnlzumsl-Ill: l ' ---'dh FOOTBALL SQUAD HARo1,D uFISE'l'H STEVENSON, Captain-elect Harold has played two years in the baclciield and shares the '29 football cap- taincy with "Al" Miiituri. He's fast and hard to stop and is also fine on interference and defense. The team should work well under the leadership of these two fellows and we expect plenty of touchdowns from "Feet" next season. Good luck, Harold. GERALD HJERRYN CLARK Jerry came from Redondo High and played end there, but Coach Nylander made him over into a battering, hard-fighting, full-back. He was always good for a few yards when the squad needed, them and was a bear on defense. "Jerry" is back next year and will continue to star. HOMER USLUGH WEBBER This is Homer's first year, and he was rather inexperienced in the art of the pig- slcin, but he fought gallantly throughout the season. "Slugl' played at guard this year, and will probably play center or guard next year. He had a little trouble in the early part of last season on learning to like the game, hut next season he will surely "eat up" his foes. RAl.l'H UCRUSTYU HARDER Harder played three years in the backfield and was a great interference runnerg he carried the ball with intense feroeiousness when called on. Ralph was one of our best players on defense and broke up many a play for the opposition. He has one more year. Just keep it up, Harder, old man. Louis "Louis" BRIGANTI, Illmmger "Louie" Bri anti, our little mana er, has seen so much football in the last ear 1 g n g 1 s s y that he has decided to come out for it next fall. "Sl " will make a ood little pla er t ' l g g Y out of ' Louie," so watch him next year. i77l P EI EEPE E T woman lI'F!lEhlZ5l-IIB BASKETBALL SQUADS VARSITY TEAM QHEAVIESD I 73 I HAWK T IBIMJL M "L-"'..EE'-.HE 5 5 ff' '55 wnnui If..

The game was hard fought throughout with considerable roughness. The score at half time was 9-6, and Torrance held this lead to the end and came out on the long end of the 19-8 count. r.llORRANCE 7, JORDAN 15-DECE1X'IBER 1-1 The tables were turned on the varsity in the next game and they lost a sharply contested game to Jordan at the Jordan clay courts. The score at half time was 10-4.

Bell led at half time and was never threatened. TFORRANCE 28, Iacon Rus 23-JANUARY 11 Playing on the home courts, the industrial city quintet nosed out the Riis Vikings by a 28-23 count. At half time the score was 11-4 with Torrance out in front, but Riis started a desperate rally which made the score nip and tuck throughout. Riis, however, was unable to overcome our lead and another scalp was added to varsity's belt- 'FORRANCE 2-1, WAsH1NoToN 33-JANUARY 18 In a game filled with arguments between coaches, players, referee and spectators, the VVashington squad came out on top after leading at half time 17-13. The spirit was lacking in the Torrance squad after Captain Townsend was ejected via the foul route and VVashington scored at will. TORRANCE 11, GARDENA 22-JANUARY 25 Getting away to an early lead at half time with a score of 15-6, Gardena was able to keep the Torrance varsity down on the short end of the scoring. In the second half Gardena continued to locate the basket and ran their total to 22, while T. H. S. scored but 11 digits. 'TORRANCE 19, BANNING 22-FEDRUARY 1 Torrance journeyed to the Y. NI. C.

In the second half, however, the Gauchos forged ahead by dint of hard fighting and nosed out the industrial city quintet in the last few minutes. TORRANQE 16, JORDAN 15-DECEMBER 14 Torrance jumped into a 10-7 lead in the first half and managed to hold it until the final whistle. In the last half, Jordan opened up with a terrible bombardment on the crimson and silver goal, but fell short of victory by one point. TORRANCE 12, BELL I9-JANUARY 4 In the first two quarters Bell took a 12-8 lead after some hard fighting on both sides. Shortly after the second half started, Charlie Ruppel, captain of the "Bees," sustained a broken shoulder, which weakened the Torrance defense and allowed Bell to run their score to 19 points while the industrial city boys tallied but 12 digits. TORRANCE 12, JACOB Rus 37-JANUARY 11 In their next game the Torrance "Bees" suffered a crushing 37-12 defeat at the hands of the Riis vikings. At half time the score was 22-7 and Riis continued their scoring throughout the second half, running the score to 37-12. TORRANCE 21, WASHINGTON I7-JANUARY 18 After trailing the axe wielders by a 10-5 count in the first half, Torrance opened a bombardment in the last two stanzas. After the lead changed hands quite often, the "Bees" managed to come to the front in the last four minutes and score two field goals to cinch the victory for Torrance. TORRANCE 1-I-, GARDENA I8-JANUARY 25 Half time ended with Gardena on the long end of a 12-4 count. In the second half, however, Captain Ruppel, who was out of the lineup for two weeks on account E801 131 555 E1 13 wanna lI'RlEhlZ5l-IIF9 of injuries, was substituted. This served to brace up the Torrance spirit and they opened up with a desperate rally which fell short by four points. F1-TORRANCE 16, BANNING 15-FEBRUARY 1 This was the second 16-15 win for Torrance, the Hrst one being over Jordan. The game was fast and furious with both teams being hindered by the strange court at the Y. M. C. A. in San Pedro. However, just before the final Whistle blew, one of the "Bees" tossed a field goal and Torrance won by the very narrow margin of one digit.

E831 an ll r wanna I-'PFUENDEI-lllrl A w I Q il. h 1 JUNIOR GIRL CHAMPIONS Meinbership and interest in the Girlsl Athletic Association has increased con- siderably during the year. More girls have been working to gain points for a letter, which entails earning Hve hundred points. Speedball, a very peppy and rough game, was introduced during the first semester. This being our first attempt at playing football, our progress was not very good, much to the dismay of IVIiss Klein. The next big sport that the girls indulged in was inter-class basketball. In this the girls did much better. Good spirit and good sportsmanship were shown by all, While the peppy Juniors reigned victorious. The standings of the games were as follows: Juniors - Freshmen - Juniors - Seniors - Juniors - Seniors - Juniors - Sophomores Seniors - Sophomores Freshmen - Sophomores Sophomores Freshmen - Seniors - Freshmen - 7 13 7 12 12 0 5 . 7 Another new sport that has been introduced since Miss Klein's arrival is hockey. The progress in this has been slow, but the girls hope to advance noticeably in this during the coming year. Tennis and baseball followed hockey. A great deal of interest was displayed in these sports, and many good games were held. Inter-class baseball games will be held as in basketball. Now that hockey and speedball have been introduced into the list of sports. and some knowledge of them acquired, with Miss Klein's capable guidance it is quite likely that the Girls' Athletic Association will be even more successful another year. 55?

The new building will be used only by Mrs. liischcn and Miss Lin- gcnfelter for instructing the Clee Clubs. The two teachers are not at all in favor of such a building, since they think that the music is so fine that the entire student body should enjoy it. Since nine-tenths of the students signed a petition to the effect that it would not tolerate the disturbing noises any longer, it lem in this manner. Mr. Austin and Mr. Burk both filed protest when they heard uf the new music studio, since they thought that it would disturb the work of their shop students.

WORLD ACCLAIMS ROBERT HUFFMAN SECOND GALLI-CURCI The Grand Opera Theatre in Berlin was the scene of the formal debut of Robert Huffman in operatic roles last week. Critics, gathered from all parts of the globe, assert that he has the best cracked falsetto in the history of scientific vocal de- velopment. Mr. Huffman, much inflated over his triumph, attributes his record of success to the fact that for fifteen years he peddled fish on the streets of New York, at which time he was well able to cultivate his voice intensively. He is being accom- panied on tours by Ilflildred Bell, who is an apt manipulator of the jewfs harp. MISSIONARY SI-IOCKS U. S. POPULACE Friends and relatives of the Rev. Joseph Townsend were mortihed beyond ex- pression upon discovering that he has returned from his good work, on the Amazon, with a harem. This is the first rash deed that this saintly man has ever done and everyone is hoping that he will soon recover his cogulative faculties and transport the unwanted females back where they came from. VVOIVIEN FROIVI T. H. S. ADVANCE CAUSE OF I-IUIVIANITY Irene Burmeister and Catherine Mulliii have opened an institution for pink elephants and other unique animals. Since the date of their opening a few weeks ago, several inmates have been enrolled. The Misses Burmeister and Mullin first became interested in humane relation- ships while still attending high school. Noticing how cruelly the gold fish in the school pond were molested by erring underclassmen, they resolved that some day they would found an institution whereby all abused creatures would be taken care of by loving hands. Accordingly they joined the local chapter of the S. P. C. A. and be- came active members of it. However, it is only Within the past year that they have built up their own division. Another member of their staff is Lois Goddard, who is especially interested in nursing seasick Seagulls from Redondo.

Among the faithful patrons, ever hopeful of miracles, are Virginia Rowell and MHl'jOfiC Yamamoto. Both received a heavy dose of obesity from the burdensome lot of editorship of the T. N. T. and Torch, respectively, and have never seemed to be recovered from it. Josephine Lupo, one of the illustrious members of the class of S'29, is the only one of them who is now living on a funded income. Having shaved off her hair, she sold it to the Soldiers' Home, run by Wesley Strohl, at a tremendous price, in- vesting the receipts in the Synthetic Apple Juice Corp., of which Charles Ruppel is now president. Clifford Crane is forever bemoaning the fact that he chose the business of under- taker as his vocation, for he claims that not enough people are dying off these days to keep him busy. To keep himself from starving, he is being employed in cutting the lawn in a cemetery, for which service he receives 50c per day. Gladys Adamsen successfully culminated a campaign for the higher rights of men's suffrage. Having preached eloquently at each street corner for two weeks in succession, the desired results for the abused sex fas she called itl were obtained. SOCIETY COLUMN Fern Stevens and Louise I-Iilpert, who are still fast friends, gave a delightful afternoon bridge party at the Tumble Inn Tea Shoppe, a cozy little nook operated by Ben Hannebrink. The honoree of the affair was Miss Mary Fiesel, school teacher from Wzltts, who has now resigned her post in search of romance. Last night Alfred Pennington, the world's foremost educator, was entertained with a theatre party by a group of Fifth Avenue matrons. The party agglomerated at the Ritz Theatre, where Clifford Jarrett, a former classmate of lVIr. Pennington, was presenting a ballet recital featuring June Cheadle, a new Pavlowa. ISSJ IE E! DYDRLD PRIERIZSI-ll?' ANTEDILUVIAN PASTIMES A lady of old was not overbold, But shy and meek as a lamb: Comely and fair, with a rose in her hair, Was shocked at the vulgar word, damn. Hoopskirts for dresses, and hair in long tresses- The instep was not to be seen. A skin of pure white, the waist drawn in tight- Her manner and style were just "keen." The maid of today has sure changed her way, No longer modest and meekg Abominates sox, and is strong as an ox, And gets a new beau every week. The alpine goat, as perchance you may note, Is no peer to the girl of today, Witlm them clad in White pants, a boy has no chance, A shower of rocks is his pay. The moral of this: Don,t climb with a miss By the side of Portuguese Bay, For you'll land up in bed, with a lump on your head, As the end of a perfect day. tWith apologies to "The Maid of Todayuj J.
