They have brought much glory and fame to Torrance High and justly de- serve mention for their efforts. Louis Zamperini, Hubert Luck, and Susumi Ishikawa represented Torrance in the Marine League, and Southern California Track Finals, and distinguished themselves by their fine spirit and ability. Captain 'joe Disario of the golf team lcd his sqaud to it's second successive championship and merits the honor bestowed upon him as the champion golfer of the Marine League for three years. The spelling team composed of Margaret Condon, 'jayne Traller, Glory Zahradnick, and Dale Howe, tied it's match with Canoga Park. Margaret repre- sented Torrance in the finals held at Bovard Audi- toium on the U.S.C. campus. "Are We Wise Enough" was the title of Alice Bur- ger's oration on World Friendship which received second place in the District Oratorical Contest. Alice has brought great honor to the School and has won recognition for her oratorical work. The Dairy Cattle Team won a trophy for 1st place in the Southern California Finals against 16 other schools at the Chino Jnnior Fair. The team also won three ribbons and Ted Merrill was third high individual in judging Holstine Cattle. This victory qualified the team to compete in the State Finals in which they made a commendable showing. Previous to this the Dairy Teams won third place at the Perris Valley contest and Ted Merrill won a third place ribbon in jersey Cows. The Poultry Team lcomposed of the same peoplej won the L.A. Country championship for third time in succession. The citrus judging team placed second at the National Orange Show in San Bernardino At this contest the team, composed of Dale Howe, Kenneth Fess, and Francis Mowry, won three other ribbons.

M My To Theodore Raofevelr, twenty-sixth President of the United States, Whose birthday has been Httingly chosen as Navy Day, we dedicate the Administration chapter of the 1934 Torch. It was he who, as Assistant Secretary of the Navy, had our fleet thoroughly prepared for the Spanish-American War. His intense interest and whole-hearted sup- port during his two administrations are re- sponsible for the ascension of the United States to the rank of second greatest sea power in the world. He is remembered as the great American, "an intense, vigilant, uncompro- mising patriot, eager to serve his nation in peace or war, who throughout his life was first and always an American." Your hour has struck Qas some would have you believej when con- ditions and all of society are leagued against you, to make your efforts for existence in a complex world most difficult This is tommy rot. Your hour has struck when society l has reached its first real sanity in a process of slow evolution. More thought is being given today, and more constructive action is being tak- en, to make life more liveable for each one of us, than in any other period of history. For you to find your place, and with it happiness, you will have to believe in yourself. You will have to close your ears to the calamity hovvlers. You will need courage. You will have to love your fellow man and be patient with his mistakes. You will need a quality we call honor. You will have to get a vision of what a better world may be. You will have to find a recognized way of doing some of the world's work, and a way of enjoying simple pleasures. The opportunities re multiplying. You are endowed with intelligence. You only need to use it. ' J X 'A sea-1f.,s,-5,1 :rg A ' -veffsf2??i "- .-.ati i fi 1 Perhaps there is no better time than during this quiet period between ac- complishment and nevvendeavors, for our Seniors to determine what influ- ence the past few years have had in shaping the ideals which will in the future unify all their knowledge and give a larger meaning to even the most transitory of their human ex- periences. It would seem that if the years have been wisely spent, there should come permanently to remain with these gtadu arcs adeepened appreciation of beauty whether If is found in literature art, or human characterg a more sympathetic understanding of others, and a greater ability to be of ser vice to them. Indeed these understanding beautv loving boys and girls are the best equipped to live life graciously-are the truly educated ones ,N 1 aimcereld Nwwlls C014 fueling n in Torrance H i gb Counselling is an educational service which should be considered an essential and integral part of the program of public education. Vocational guidance includes most of that which is usually connected with the term educational guidance. The latter has its foundations in abilities, interests, and limitations which are necessary in relation to a definite vocational choice, and deals with helping the individual to plan an educational program which must be related quite definitely to this choice. At Torrance Counseling is to become a regular school function. The Counselor will aim to reach all pupils. Interviews that determine wise choice in courses and programs are being encouraged. These interviews are scheduled and appointments made at least a day be- fore the meeting. Out of these interviews there will come a wealth of information concerning pupils, which will be placed on a personnel card. There are no two humans alike in the world, and the same program is sometimes diflicult for more than one person. Each human is a law unto himself. Every one is simply a human being. He has some interest, and it is held by psychologists that with that interest teachers can disarm prejudice and win over to Ways of wisdom even the most difficult mind. RAYMOND CASEY. Tlne New Deal in i Torrance High How astounded would be the hardy pioneers who founded and developed our country, if they could know that one of the great problems facing America today is the training of her people for proper use of their leisure time. As the old order changeth, giving place to new, machines are taking the place of men in doing the work of the world. While economists seek the solu- tion of the stupendous problems as to how men may make a living, each of us must Work out for himself an equally important problem. How shall we spend the hours in which we are not working? To help the pupils to prepare for this phase of living, T.H.S. has this year made an attempt to introduce them to profitable ways of spending their leisure time. During the first semester, groups went the rounds, in an exploratory fashion, of all sorts of recreational activities, physical and social. During the second semester each student elected, for a Five week period at a time, the type of activity which he felt he might be interested in working into a hobby of his own. All sorts of interests developed ing some cases latent talent was uncovered. The Leisure Time program represents a real effort on the part of the School to face the needs of its stu- dents, who must be able to meet the demands of a changing social order. IRENE MILLS.

The purpose ofthe new plan is to encourage pupils to make a ser- ious study of the social problems of the world. N.R.A., Taxation, Monetary Standards, Inflation the Pan American Conference, and the entire rehabilitation program have been given intensive study, With classes on a regular schedule of library research much profit- able reference reading has been done. During one week the school showcase carried models deflicting life in France during the French Revolution. This unit of work was executed by a B-10 class under the direction of Miss Marguerite jones. Thejournalism Class has kept the entire .Ytuclent Body up-to-date with "Student News" published every day. X K The Instructors in this Department are Miss Mills, Miss Burnham, Mrs. Engel, Mrs. Kelly, Miss Marguerite Jones, Miss Evajones, Miss Vaubel, Mrs Young, and Miss Sommer. Classrm! and Reereatzon For administrative purposes the Classical and Re- creational Departments have been grouped under one head. Under this Department come Art, Library, Ancient and Modern Languages, and Girls' and Boys' Physical Education. During the past year the value of a cultural education has been stressed, and much has been accomplished in this direction. Under the Music Department the a Cappella Choir, directed by Mrs. Marjorie Eischen, brought several honors to Torrance High as the result of its singing on various occasions during the year. At least one day each week is spent in the Library by the Latin Classes, during which time the students read on Roman history and customs. The Spanish Classes spend their time in the Library reading on Spanish customs and Spanish authors. The teachers in this Department are Mrs. Eischen, Music, Mrs. Morse, Latin, Miss Behr, Librarian, Miss Chase, Art, Mr. Donahue, Boys' Physical Edu- cation, Mrs. Bent, Girls' Physical Education, and Mrs. Boynton, Spanish, and Chairman of this De- partment. Science De pmttmem' A In these days of breath-taking, fast-moving, and startling world changes of a financial and political nature, science also is moving no less rapidly, though perhaps with less notice, as it progresses in its wide and varied fields. Science has gradually extended its applications so that the "pure science" of twenty years ago is in household use today.

In the Dress-making classes the girls cut, fit, and LJ-eq k .gee en.. make dresses in regular practice and get new experi- ence in different types of garments. They are fortunate in having the work in this De- partment under the direction of excellent teachers, each an expert in her field. The Industrial Arts department consists of Woodshop, Printing, Drafting, Sheet Metal, Electricity, Machine Shop, and Automobile Repair. With the exception of Drafting, the Department has carried on this sem- ester under extreme difficulties. The earthquake darn- age to the shop building made it necessary to move temporarily into bungalows totally unsuited for the better type of shop instruction. Every boy who graduates from Torrance High must have at least a years work in Practical Arts. The Commercial Department offers specializing courses specializing in Secretarial work and Business practice. Some of the courses taught under these branches are Typing. Shorthand, Commercial Arithmetic, and General Business Elements. A new incentive for the commercial student is the opportunity offered under the Educational Emergency Project for practical ex- periences in business and factory offices. Aco-ordinator, Mr. Paul Cope, supervises this work and under his direction only that type of position is solicited that adds to the fund of practical experience. One period daily is spent by those fortunate enough to be placed, and School credit toward graduation is earned. The Commercial Department also provides practical typists to other departments of the School for any type of work coming within this field. The adminis- trative offices are thereby relieved of much work and the clerical staff duties lessened. KH! fp.- ,.l'. I .. xg 1 .

Dairy Productsjudge 1-2-3-4 Fruit Judge 1-2-3 Livestock 1-2 Clary Tzfopbeqf S '34 Place: Arroyo Seco, Cabin of Mr. Wright. Time: Bright morning---spring of 1944. Enter Mr. Wright, who peers anxiously down the road. He hears in the distance a faint clamor of voices and laughter, which swells louder at each bend in the road till it becomes so deafening it could be made by none but his '34 homeroom, Mr. Wright decides. A moment later the party rounds the bend, headed by Homer K. and Jack Mc. in the heaving, steam- ing remains of Homer's schooldays jitney. Homer, who is now by the way a successful auto manufacturer, and his business colleaguetlack, have removed this treas- ured old relic from their private museum to attend the reunion in. The occupants of the closely following cars swarm out and Continue swarming till the cabin and patio are thoroughly infested with them, Mr. Wright picks himself up from a corner where he reflects apprehen- sively that his old homeroom pupils have lost none of their three V's. Well, this frail structure withstood one class party back in '33, though the swings under the oaks haven't been the same since Johnny Sand Vernon C. attempt- ed a new altitude record in them that day. And speaking of onions,"if that tall uniform bearing down on me isn't full of Johnny himself, "l'll eat my bow tie" says W. S. W. for words to that effectj. Right you are, teacher, our johnny must be a colonel, or at least a lieutenant. And to think those spitball- throwing tendencies in the Junior High were the outcroppings ofmilitary genius! But wait a moment! Well, Ishould think you would blush, Mr. Wright. Johnny introduces himself as Captain Schroeder of the Salvation Army. El professor dazedly takes refuge in the depths ofa lounging chair from whence his amazed scrutiny passes over the noisy throng. just for Auld Lang Syne, 1et's introduce each one to Teacher instead of letting him puzzle his brain over them. For between you and me, that's another thing that hasn't been the same since six yeat's daily doses of a certain group of youngsters. But did we mention the marvelous transformation that came over the Misses jones and Vaubel? On being dis- encumbered of their respective '34 homerooms, the re- lease was so wonderful, they immediately became ex- amples of bubbling girlishness. We will begin our introductions by pointing out Miss Vaubel as she glides around the improvised dance floor with a very tall, dark, and notorious gigilo. Among the other dancing couples we behold a gla- morus looking creature whose name is now a house- hold word--Miss Verna Mae Da Longa, America's movie sweetheart. l-ler partner, also of movie fame, is Tommy Rogers, who has become the idol of every boy scout in the land through his daring character- izations of Tarzan. Missjones is entertaining a group offormer homeroom pupils with the latest tap step, while her teacher, the famous tap and ballet master, Martinsky Kalinasky, looks on approvingly and taps time with one foot. fPlease! Feet, Mr. Wright's cabinisn't earthquake proof, Mr. Kalinasky's assistant, Cleo Long, is de- lighting the ladies by flirting about the patio on one toe, as lightly as a bit of sea froth. Hark! The deep, sonorous tones of yon learned-look- ing gents sound familiar, let's listen:"Heh, heh, but carbolic acid is good-bye in any ol' language-'er sumpn" ! Why ofcourse, its our old funster, Ed Dalton. The gentlemen to Ed's right seems mightily amused. "Man, man, you sorta slay me," is the retort that issues from the foliage framing his pious countenance. Well, well, and well! Meet Reverend Jones. You recall La Vern had to resign his Walter Winchell jr. career, as the strain of peering through keyholes was ruining his eyesight Ah,Me!mighty oaks from little acorns grow, Would you ever recognize in those flowing whiskers ffreshlv waved and-er-Curried at the Mendenhall and Wood Beauty Salonj the modest sideburns that used to verdure on ,Ionesy's youthful cheeks, setting school girl hearts aflutter and furnishing fodder for the Student News? Yes, that distinguished looking young woman is none other than Alice Burger, Hmadam chairman" of the League of Nations, and her secretary Guy Rowell. She is talking over world affairs with Har- uko Minami, lady ambassador, and Kiyoshi Minami, Globe trotter and lecturer. What could be the attraction in that circle of girls? Let's ooze into the melee and get a look-see -A round-faced-suave-looking young man is hold- ing up a shimmering satin gown. Introducing Monsieur Cecile Bishop and his manne- quins, Beulah Russell, Mae Sleep, Inez Smith and jimmy Miller. fMy dears, you must know that Jimmy is a perfect dream in a sky-blue pink dressing-gownlj But life has had its dark moments for Jimmy, for when he blondined his hair to match, all doors on Post Avenue closed to him, Bang! just like that! Another distinguished pcrsonage with us today is Ted Yamamoto who has been the means ofabolishing the shadows ofthe gallows and electric chair from the land. Ted just looks at the criminals with that dirty, dirty gleam that used to appear in his eye during rit- ous moments in class meetings-and the victims with- er away, saving scads of bother and being more sani- tary than the old methods of capital punishment. fAren't these modern inventions wonderful?j The beaming little green-eyed blonde over there looks very familiar. Of course! the famous smile of Della Angel graces every tube of Micanovitch Bros. toothpaste. QYou see, when Valadimir at last divulged the secret of his pearly molars, the boys got together and started their businessj Skwawk! screech! Mr. Wright, what does ail your radio? "We want music," wail the dancers. Oh! Oh! what's that? "He caught him with his left a-a-and he's down. No, he'sup--Hesdownysup, Hesdownysup. Bong! End of round one. Your announcer is Francis Mowry, speediest sports announcer on the air." Would you look --- Everybody's joining hands, must must be a game of Drop the Handkerchief in the making. No, we catch sight of the turban clinging to bristly Cranium of Kenneth Fess the famous mystic. All are in a quiet circle now, knowing Kenneth's re- markable ability to contact departed spirits. Printer Joe Disario breaks the silence first by asking to Speak to the spirits of all the dead type whose corpses lay in galleys around the printshop, and Edi- tor Dorothy Jensen inquires about the afterlife of all herbeloved Studetnt News personals that just couldn't be-well-answers Kenny--they weren't on asbestos paper too. World Tennis Champ Dorothy McMillan wonders about all those dead balls. While Senator Dale Howe does the same about those dead bills. But Kenney's gone off into a trance so we might as well break up. Aha, Refreshments: Some famous Mat- thew muffins fmixed by Cook Mary herselfj and some tea from the far-away desert island plantation of Ted Merrill, both served by Dick Colburn in a fetching white chef's uniform that sets off his black curls and rosy cheeks perfectly. Esther is quite an extremely busy little woman these days with her home for disabled football vet- erans. Some of her regular patients are John Elder, Kenneth Haslam and Milton Everett. If you are pa- tient, Ma Frens, I'm sure Milt will oblige by orating his famous masterpiece of philosophy, "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life" which tells one and all how to get the meat out of the kernel of life. Where would the world be without "Milt's and I-laslam's"?fVoice from the rear answers, "In heavenl!"j Who said that? All right, Betty jane Rous, come out from behind that cloud. just for that naughty crack you must entertain us some way. Betty offers to paint the portrait of anyone who'l1 take her place. Ah!.I thought that would bring results. This is wonderful. One at a time now, so Betty's secretary, Miss Kresse, can take down your names. joy Fossum offers to present her latest piano con- certg Ruth and Audree will show us how they won Stardom in Zeigfeld's Follies, Helen Smith will jump over a post and run around the house in record timeg Catherine Mitchell would consent to giving us the latest etiquette pointersg Sherman Allen and Paul Drury might coax Governer james Lee to swallow his dignity fit vvouldn't make a very big mouthful todayj and join in a song. Pearl Gilbert, authority on the "Personnel Side of the Navy," would know how to interest the ladies no doubt. Alice Shumacher, famous "langorist" fnot linguistj ,consents to play herlatestcompositionu Bore- dom" in three flats fMy-y, Alice, is'nt boredom in our flat enough for even you? Try an apartmentj Katherine Fritz might explain how she became an efficiency expert. Ah! Now here is an offer. Margaret Floyd will teach to dance all our spineless little bro- thers and other young men who wither the best par- ties. 7' last Zllflliill ann Zlliestament Summer tram '34 We, the Students of Summer '34 class, in the last days of our High School career, do bequeath to our under- classmen, whom we leave behind, our most valued possessions and deficiencies.

Scene: Three distinguished and renowned gentlemen patiently watching their fishing poles and talk- ing over old times. Eugene Stegelmyer, local justice of peaceg Albert Andre, successful arch- itect: and Alfred Bunje, Hitler's U.S. agent. Albert: "Say, fellows, did you see the premier of Acree's Follies at the Paramount? By the way, I understand that Sherman Allen is sole owner of that theater now." Bunje: "Boy, those Mikelson sisters sure put on a good act." Albert: "YehF but George McDougall's "Play Boys" have a good act too." '. Eugene: "Wasn't that the night Woosley anl his 4 prohibitionists nearly caused a riot?" -Bunjei: "Chief of Police Carlin was on the job ' i though, and soon had order restored." Albert: "I dropped in at the show and saw Virg- inia. She said that Dorothy Nagayama was arriv- ing next week on a good-will tour from japan." Eugene: "ls that a fact! It will sure be good to see her again. Not changing the subject, but do you fellows think that Frasca and Mussolini will conquer Europe?" Bunje: "Not on your life, they haven't a chance while Hitler's alive." Albert: "Wait a minute fellows, isn't that Barbara Nickerson and Lorraine Roelofs coming up the pier?" Bunje: "By golly it is. The last I heard of them, they were running a sanitarium for run-down foot- ball players," Eugene: "Speaking about athletics, I sure was sur- prised to hear that Carl Paxman accepted that coaching job at Narbonnef' Albert: "I read in the Daily Gazette that Toshi Su- minaga bought a fleet of Chevrolet trucks from Peckham and Peckham Chevrolet Sales Corpora- tion." Bunje: "Craig Brown is in the automobile industry too. He is running a garage for broken-down Studebakersf' Albert: "Is it true he is going to elope with the pent-house queen, Alice Shumacher?" Eugene: "I'm afraid so: she jilted Lester Bottoms so bad that he tried to jump off of the Brooklyn Bridge." Bunje: "That reminds me of poor Keith Coast. He has already lost 820,000 in a breach of promise suit." Eugene: "Russo sure made the headlines again." Bunje: "What did he do now." Eugene: "He made a new peace pact between Mus- solini and Japan." Albert: "He also had his two personal secretaries, Myrtle Gregg and Birdie Hale, accompany him on his business trips." Bunje: "Bill Clark is certainly building up a name for himself in the astronomical field. His latest dis- covery is the length of time it takes sound to travel between the sun and Mars." Eugene: "Hey! Wake up you've got a fish on your line."

This enterprise consisted of placing upper-class and post-graduate students in outside work where they might gain practical experience. This plan was met with great enthusiasm by both the students and the business men of this community. Programs were adjusted to meet this new situation and to allow the student to spend a one-hour period daily at his work. Mr. Paul Cope was engaged as the Field Co-ordinator, and he, with the aid of the Counsellor, Mr. Casey, held conferences with the students and their prospective employers to learn for what field of work the student was best fitted Some of the jobs at which the students are now work- ing are stenography, law ofhce work, laboratory work, nursing, and clerking in stores. This enterprise is not only new to Torrance High School but to secondary schools in general. Its adop- tion created an unprecedented situation which had to be met by its sponsors. So far this plan has been a very great success, and it will probably be adopted by many other high schools in the future. .- 1 "7 -2 'fy .eau-r -4 all 4 Lf, 1, if , N . ,I 3 -v' ' ' Qi CJ! ,-iq 2 i 1 ,X g' I I U' 'V ' w,Vl,4,A,"-r!.f?.4, VJ xi!

The class of 1934, in due admiration of Ste- phen Decatur, hereby dedicate the Campus Section of this Annual to this heroic man. f y fyacfli V of oi., vf.'tfXLV'iSr"LLf Leu WCLLVLJQ llXl.llXllXll Sept. 11. Welcome, ye old Tartars! Welcome, one and all! We are all pepped up for the 1933- 1934 school year as you can tell by the yelling, singing, and joking that was going on today at the and call in the gym. We certainly miss our auditor- ium but with our new system in the gymnasium, we won't need one as much as we did in the past. Here's hoping we all enjoy this coming year as we have the ones that have past. QHehl Hehlj Sept. 15. My! how the seventh graders get along. They have been acting rather timid, but oh, wait unti1.- well, anyway, just give them time. Billy Andrews has been seen being very modest and quiet. QMrs. Young, "Oh Yeah?"j Sept, 19. Were some of the girls surprised to see a very modest sheik roaming around T.H.S. this -morning? It was none other than that well known teacher's son,"Theodore" Merrill, better known as Ted. Well, girls, he's a woman hater. Sept. 25. Can Bud Bradford and Mr. Burchett pitch horseshoes? Well, anyone wishing to rake lessons can see Mr. Burchett in 102 the seven th and eighth periods. Ted Adzovich isn't bad, eh wot? fl-le isn't good either., And did you notice the Senior girls shooting apples off of Mr. Tice's head? All of the girls look forward to this wonderful period when the honorable Mr. Tice teaches them to shoot a wick-ed arrow. Sept. 26. Was Pansey Warrington's face a maroon when T. Bowersox posted a sign "Please Do Not Pick The Flowers" on his manly chest? Well, just ask dear old Pansey Wansey. Sept. 27 Have you heard the "School Song" yet? Well if you haven't, you're lucky. The three song leaders have been practicing for the football games and are they driving us crazy? Oi! Oi! On! QPrice, Bowersox, Banks.j kpt. 28. 'Tis a sad, sad, sad, story! john Nady lost his pants this P.M. coming from the practice Torrance had with San Pedro. Coach told John to "come up sometime" and get a new pair. QIt's N.R A. again or yet. Pants onlylast so long and then-N.R.1:l.!j A Sept. 29. Senior Bees are at it again. If it isn't colors, it's sweaters. The boys want white suede jack- ets, and the girls want orange sweaters.. When all is said and done, they'll probably agree to get pink boleros Hot-cha! Oct 2. This new Recreation Period is going to be just one "big timel' Miss Behr is going to give talks on some of the new books we now have here at School. The Junior girls went to hear her today and they enjoyed it very much. Martha Greaves wanted to know if they had any new love story magazines. Woe is Martha. Oct. 3. Don't be alarmed if you hear strange moans and groans coming from room 103 first-period "Public Speaking Class." It is only the students raving because they have to have a speech. iLife is just one speech after anotherlj Oct. 6. All of the students have a fine excuse now for not going to the Library to study. The Library is being repaired It is certainly "tough" that the paintings on the wall were "chiseled" down. But every one will be glad to have -the Library iixed, for even if the pretty paintings are gone, we can still watch the ninth grade girls put their "paint" on. , ' Oct. 9. Clubs! Clubs! Everyone in School should be able to .End one kind of a club to join. Bill Denny is such a fast thinker, fbixt he 'certainly had a "tough" time deciding whether to join the G.A.A. or the Archery Club. fSuggested by Fran- cis--we don't want to mention his last name but it starts with a C and cndstwith a-r-n-a-h-a-nfl L Q Oct. Oct. Oct. Oct. Oct. 10. Oh-Hol We all have to hand it to Ruth Colburn, the new B-10 Class President, for get- ting notes. And there will probably be no more "rough-housing" in the B-10 home room now that Sylvia Zamperini is Sergeant-at-Arms. 11. We're still wondering how some of those students such as Dorothy McMillan and Kenneth Haslam were put on the Student Control Board. Oh well, I guess we all couldn't be on the Control Board and no one wanted Dorothy and Kenneth to feel hurt so we just gave up the idea. 13. Kinda tough on Torrance, the way the foot- ball game turned out today fno alibisj? Ahl but, today was Friday the thirteenth. Coach and the boys saw about 9,999,999,999 black cats on the way to Narbonne. This ex- plains for some of the score. QLet's forget the other part-ahem, their part.j Torrance played a very good game against Narbonne although the football squad said the game was lost for Torrance before they had ever started.fWho knows?j 17, Mrs. Bull's Sewing Classes have been doing some exceptionally nice work all by "hand" too fwe didn't think they'd do it with their feet or nosej, however. Nevertheless they certainly brightened up the hall over in the Science Building with the pretty things they have been making. 20.. These "females" that wear their boy- friend's sweaters, woe be unto them. We'll hope for the best in the future. Senor John Pasqualita "Nady" is headed for a successful future as an opera star. Singing seemed to be to him what Bill Burkett is to Alice Burger from the sounds of things today in the main hall. QAfter that warbling, Nady, you real- ly should belong to the Varsity Club-there's no doubt about it.J Oct. 23. The "dye has been cast"! The Seniors have Oct. Oct. Oct. Oct. Oct. decided on gray and blue for their Senior sweater. We can picture Mr. Wright in his already! Hot- cha-chacha fthe two last Chas go togetherj. The Cooking Classes under the supervision of Mrs. Wyvcll have been making pies and selling them. The Cooking Class was very smart in thinking up the idea--ah! yes-but think of the teachers. fThere's business for some doctor.j 24. Torrance High is putting through a new deal with the football team. Torrance won over Leuzinger High five whole points. I guess Tor- rance isn't as slow as some Post Avenue girls think. How about it, girls? 25. There will be no more standing in line and being tardy to classes just waiting for a Library book. The Library is once again open, and is everybody happy? Miss Behr can answer that. She almost had writ- er's cramp from signing so many cards. 27. Harry Richart certainly can "take it" as this younger generation says fahemj. He broke his collar bone in a scrimmage. We certainly hope it gets better right away. 30. Every one is expecting Barnum and Bailey's to arrive at Torrance High School any time now, but we are sorry to inform you that the tent that is being put up is only a temporary Cafeteria for the students so that they won't get wet fLet's hope for the best and that no one gets "all wet." 31. This weather we are having is certainly boring! One doesn't know whether to come to school in a canoe or a submarine. Roger McGinnis hurt his leg at a practice game, but will be able to play in the game at El Se- gundo next Friday. We all expect to see Margaret Condon there next Friday! QW W IV! A L . Nov. 1. Disappointment entered the hearts of many a student last night as they found the gong of the Baptist Church bell missing. Nevertheless cars were pushed out in the middle of the street and not only tomatoes were whirling around overhead, but also green gourds -and let me tell you--they don't feel like feathered pillows. Nov. 2. Bob Wertz certainly knows his "Scotch." Don't take us wrong, we mean hop-scotch. He certainly looked pretty in the garden hopping around - so graceful, etc. ' Don't be surprised if you see Bill Wilson, a re- cent member of the Student Body, with a black eye. Bill and Wilda Robinson were married re- cently. Llnnocence is bliss. We hope so.j Nov. 3. The two "shy violets" of Torrance High School are Harold Watson and Cletus McLean, who are too dignified or too bashful to play hide-and-seek with the girls of their own home- room. Need We say more? Mr. Tice is giving ten minutes a day toward etiquette lessons for his A-eight home room. Not that they need it any more than some of the higher grades do. Nov. 6. If Eldon Zanon, Gene Tolson, or Eugene Stegelmeyer is seen digging up the lawn in front ofthe School don't be alarmed, just remember they have joined the "Fishermen's Club," and "lish" must have their "worms" QIt's a good thing there isn't any fish in the fish pond in the patio.Q As the fish said to the worm, "Why don't you come in some time?" Nov. 7. Mrs. Eischen will have a nice time teaching her Music Appreciation Class as she only has seven members. We had better watch that class or they might start having a good .time in there and we wouldn't want them to do that. Not when they can "get away with it." Nov. 8. Is there any one who'hasn't seen Hubert McClure or his yellow roadster? We don't have to ask any of the girls who live near him. fSome line.j g Nov. 9. Passers-by of the Torrance High School might think it was a hospital as for the looks of Jim Grubbs on crutches, Susumi Ishakawa limping. We hope they all recover before long, and are able to take up dancing from Mr. Caseys with the moaning and groaning that Milton Ever- ett does people might think dear old T.H.S. was an asylum. Nov. 10. The and call was very interesting today. Mr. Floyd Covington, a Negro social service worker of Los Angeles, gave a very good speech. Don't forget to contribute to the milk fund. Some of the students of T.H.S. look as though they need "milk vitamins." More boys need milk than do the girls, judging by the looks of Lucille Stroh and Tommy Rogers. Nov 13. Benny Smith certainly is the poet. Madri- gals are giving free lessons on haunting houses Ain't it the truth? Girls Wear the same dress more than once a week and they are "disgraced ' ' Boys wear the same pair of cords six 'months without having them washed, and yet they are "heroes" Nov. 14. Pat Carlin was minus a shoe at the foot ball game Friday at Gardena, so what? The funny posters you see around the halls are supposed to be advertising a puppet show coming to the Torrance High Tent real soon. Nov. 17. The Library has received a new shipment of books. Those who don't care to read see Russell Quigley and he will tell you everything that is in them. Nov. 20. If you have never seen "red" before your eyes, you certainly will from now on. The Var- sity Club has had some benches painted a very "dull" shade of red. fYehl so dull it blinds you to look at them.j They are to be used by the "members" of the Varsity Club onlyl QThat lets you out, Buzz R. 7 7 L Nov. 21. Torrance is the first school to score against Banning this year. Therefore, we suppose Ban- ning "aint-ta-wat-it used to be. Who are the Ban- ning sheiks that come to Torrance and take "3" Torrance senoritas home every nite? Ask "Fan- ny Greaves, Betty Stevenson, or Ella Levy' ' what they think of Banning. Nov. 23. What Senior boy was strolling morosely down the hall uttering the following words-- "My girl-friend is taking chemistry I'm afraid I'll have to drop her, For every time I take her out My silver turns to copper." fMylMy!j Nov, 27. The Student Body is again reminded to bring contributions for the Thanksgiving baskets. If all of the Student Body would go for one day without candy and chewing gum and give their money to the Thanksgiving baskets, I'm sure there would not be anyone in Torrance feeling very hungry on Thanksgiving day. Nov. 28. The G.A.A. party, planned by Inez Smith and Ruth Banks, took place today in the gym during seventh and eighth periods. A hilarious time for all. The games played were: ping pong and basket-ball, also everyone tried to see who could eat the most. ' Dec. 3. Speaking of hurricanes, blizzards, et cetera- today is as close to any of them as Torrance High desires to be. The wind is blowing so hard it almost blew Frank Thompson down. QNow you tell one.j Dec. 4. Alice Burger plus Bill 'Burkett equlas that familiar popular piece of music,"l'll be Faithful" -forever and ever, dear. QOh! Yeah?J Dec. 5. Betty jane Rous has gone car "crazy"-the way she drives around Torrance city limits it isn't even safe for Popeye "Walker" to drive, and we all know how careful he is. The Social Arts Class had another luncheon.Why don't more of us "Students" get invited to these sophisticated affairs? Take the blame you "Sev- enth graders." Dec . Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. Dec. 6. Mrs Eischen pays each time she is thrilled by the Madrigals. She is supposed to deposit money fever heard of itj in a small box every time the Madrigals thrills her through and through and through ftwenty-five cents, pleasej. 7. Mrs. Young has been severely ill for several days. The Student Body sincerely hopes she will regain her normal condition rapidly and return to school as soon as possible. She is very much in demand, because the Social Problems Class was heard saying Mrs.Young knows more than does either need I say more? 8, Ah! Lad-eez and Gen-teel-men, can the Schniftskas dish it out! but the Hinky Dinks can take it, or the other way around. Either way you put it, both teams had a very exciting game of basketball today. U. 11. Christmas "Tag Sale" began today. Oh! what a rush-what a rush-and all for 'that little sales girl-oh! Blondie!fDona'-Joj . The sale will close Thursday afternoon so-hurry+hi1rry -hurry-. he 12. The Faculty must have had onewbig, huge, large time at their Christmas party with three turkeys fthey were dead, the turkeys-T-ngeanj to feast on. Woulfln't you like to have been peeking in the window at them? 13. Russell Quiggly wants a doll for Christmas, but he refuses to accept it if it is not human. Mr. Wright's class is entertained daily by pigeons cooing. Someday it is hoped they will be able to coo out answers in pig-Latin and that Mr. Wright cannot understand it. 14. The signs for Woods Field have been com- pleted and will be put up as soon as possible. Miss Mills has been muttering the following words down the hall from morning till night: Billie, Billie, Billie, Whoopee-then repeats four more Billies. Do not be alarmed, it is only a game. Dec. Jan. jan. jan. 15. The Madrigals gave a Christmas program today in the Library. The mothers that were pre- sent said they had never heard singing that had been sung as well as the Madrigals. Considering the time they put on their work and being only high school pupils they did exceptionally well. The Madrigals have been asked to sing at the Bible Institute Dec. 22. QNot bad, eh?j 3. The Sophomore Class certainly had a nice time today straining their vocal chords over in the American Legion hall. Mr. Casey even en- joyed directing the class. Believe it or not. Si- lence, You're foolish if you do believe it. Alta West certainly has a soft, sweet, sensational, swishy, Ah-uh--I mean Swiss bass voice. 4. Club Day! All clubs are aiming to do some- thing, for better or for worse. The Modes and Manners Club is trying to teach the members how to become one hundred percent perfect in how to call for your girl friends, and how a girl should spend her boy friend,s money. Example, wrong way: Boy, after the show, "I-low would you like to get a hamburger?" Girl:-"Gee! I knew you'd suggest a dinner and l'm so hungry, I could eat a charlie horse. And I just adore this cute little menu card. It says, "Dinners---51.50 each." Well, my friends and most cordial readers, that is the wrong thing to do. Example, right way: Boy QSame Boyj, After the show fSame Showj: "l-low would you like to go get a hamburger?" Girl- fDifferent Girlj : "Sure, l'd enjoy an ice cream cone." Thats all for this lesson. Good-bye. 5. Whoopie! Ride-em Cowboy--Whoops. Mon- te Montana and his two horses were at the T.H.S. rancho today. Every one seemed to enjoy the rodeo. Even Mr. Waddingham and Mr. Tice were heard yelling ride-m-cowboy-if you know what I mean. jan. Jan. Jan. Jan. jan. Jan. 6. Take warning, one and all. Mary Russo has gone back to the days when Cleopatra was the pass word and not David Clark. Why, Mary is so mean she even sticks her tongue out at all the little seventh and eighth graders. She would even put ants in their lunches if she wasn't afraid that she might get "stung" 10. jim Grubbs is what the ideal girl will take to the prom next December. To think of the pleasure of paying his way to the prom and gliding along the dance floor, with him on fiour new pink shoes.-Oh! what could be sweeter? fl'll take Vanillaj 26. The Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth graders are certainly little honey-bunnies. They have been picking up papers and orange peelings from the soil of T.H.S. and are trying to keep the grounds for should I say campusjclean. The Faculty and the higher grade students cer- tainly wish to thank them I'll say we do. Even if we are the ones who put the papers and so forth on the grounds, we don't like to pick them up. 29. The election is over and all is well. Ken- neth is our new Student Body President and we all want to congratulate him. These Hre drills are getting to be quite the thing. Kathleen Pullman tried to slide down a rail in the Science building but failed to do so as she happened to sight a faculty member. 30. Is that Jean Routt a Mae West? just ask Dick Colburn who "goes up sometime." Only Jeanie isn't there any more. 31. Who is this girl they call Jean Kresse? And why is she so quiet when she's in homeroom sitting next to-well, we'll skip that, but be careful,Jean. Some day you are going to say too much, as does Schnozzola Duranre and Everett Sieber. Today is a longer day for small things. Catch on? Feb. 1. Today is the big day for the Ninth graders. Feb Feb. Feb. Feb. Feb Feb They are graduating and are they glad? Three years down and three more to go. Not bad. just to think only three more years of georgeous school days. What could be sweeter? 2. "AndI hope we win many more games in the future,"-were the words uttered by every man-ahem-who received his letter today at the Aud. Call. 6. Woe to Miss Parks. Only one million programs to straighten out and one billion conflicts to ad- just. Personally we feel as though we are going to have ia nervous breakdown when we have to fix one program. Think how Miss Parks feels when she has to Find 1,001,000,000 different things. Oi! wat a bizznez, eh? 8. What drama, what tech-ni-que. Romance is and always will be a Racket. What a play, and to think it was all given by our own stew-dents. Pretty colosal I should say. 9. More Winchells for the Journalism Class. The Student Body officers have even turned Win- chell. Too bad Feet Kalina can't take it. I'll bet he knows lots of nice things to say, even if he doesn't say them. fSnappy comeback, 1812.1 12. "Could I interest you in this, Madame?" Why do some of the students go around mumbling that phrase to themselves? I'll tell you whyg they are practicing their speeches for the one hour grind after school as an apprentice. If it keeps up very long, I'm afraid some of us are going to be sold on their sale speeches. I'll bet Ella Levy could sell old worn out trigonometry books with that line of hers. 22. Today- a confession of Miss Eva Jones-"My sister went to Los Angeles County Jail and my cousin went to San Quentin." That is all. My friends do not be disturbed, she thought you would know that they only "visited." Feb. 27. These Student Body presidents' little sisters are always in the way. Lois Zanon is always getting in the way of the Senior girls, and she gets knocked, around as if she was only an eighth or ninth grader. fAs if she were., Feb. 28. All is well in school work. That is the motto of Harold Clemmcr and his famous Latin. Har- old is going to Rome froamj and become a Lat- in--er. Mar. 6. Strike three--you're out! Margaret Condon, T.H.S.

Well I am surprised at Bill Clark walking nonchalantly down the main hall singing, "Who's afraid of a big pedestrian, big pedestrian etc." Of course Bill wouldn't try to run over a pedestrian with his new streamline Cadillac, no not "the Bill Clark." Mar. 9. Ruth Banks and Virginia Bowersox are cer- tainly the queens of the May when it comes to spring dancing. Imagine! right on Woods field they did their little dance. Toots was attempt- ing to do the "Rumba," and Ruth was adding her famous "Tap Dance" to the tune of "Take me Where the Daisies Cover Old T.H.S." Mar. 15. Bud Bradford and Mary Ann Taylor can harmonize and I don't mean Polka Talie. Mar. 21. Who are the girls who go with Mary Woosley just to be near her big, handsome, he- mannish brothers? We all wonder. Of course, it couldn't be Myrtle Gregg and Birdie Hale. Mar. 23. So! So what? Nick Fish is going to leave T. H. S. and go to Yuma, Arizona.

What is this strange powerjack McCune has over the girls? He just has to smile at them and they walk away singing down the halls. Could it be that he asks them for a date to go to the local theater or perhaps an out-of-town one? April 11. What is this mysterious pow-wow that Ed Woods, Perry Mendenhall, Guy Rowell and Tru- man Waugh attend? Is it good or bad? Sometimes we wonder. Of course we know it couldn't be that they would talk about which girl in T.H.S' has the prettiest eyes. Or could it? April 13. Look out for black cats.

All of the boys were gone yesterday, or at least a large part. Yesterday was Boy's Day, and they all went visiting different places. We wonder where Bud Bradford and Roger McGinnis went.

Board The Student Board of Control is a judiciary com- mittee. It handles cases of deportment, and although it has no power to impose penalties, the members may recommend penalties. The members of the Board are appointed for their High School lives. Those who were in office during the last semester are Dorothy Mac Millan, Harold Watson, Milton Everett, Carl Paxman, Ted Adzo- vitch, Ted Yamamoto, and Kenneth Haslam, ex-officio member.

The homerooms were divi- ded into sections and each section brought different articles for the drives at Thanksgiving and Christmas -time. The classes helped very much in buying Girls' League Tags. Because of homeroom being only on Friday, a girl was appointed in each of the first period classes to Check uniforms. This plan has worked nicely.

Concerts over the radio, at Teachers Institute, arid at the Eagle Rock a Cappella Festival, were among the Choir's notable achievements. Local conccrfs, were given at the Rotary Club, in Torrance High School Library,and at School functions. Repertoire included some of the most difficult selec- tions that have ever been attempted at Torrance High School. In the second semester the Madrigals entered the Al- lied Arts Contest and sang several difficult numbers in competition with other Choirs of the City. At Commencement in june, almost half of the mem- bers sang with the Madrigals for the last time. This program climaxed one of the most successful years the Madrigals have had.

Outside engagements are occasionally accepted, and the Club has given numbers on programs for churches and clubs. Each term the Club sings for the junior High School Commencement. At the end of each term the girls present a tea-musi- cale for parents, teachers and friends, at which time their entire repertoire is reviewed The director, Mar- jorie Eischen, has been very much pleased with the earnest effort and marked improvement of this Club. Student 5' tore Torrance High has been very fortunate for the past few years in having a Store which has been a means of maintaining funds for the Student Body. Senior High students taking business courses have the privilege of working in the Store, a student being in charge each period of the day. This work is beneficial to the student in that he learns how to operate a cash register, decorate shelves, and meet the other students of the School. During the first semester Audree Rocque was manager and during the second semester Margaret Floyd. The clerks were as follows: First Semerter john Nady Ruth Nahmens Margaret Floyd Eugene Walker Elsie Price -...., George Miura Della Angel joe Disario Stage Crew Second .Ynnurn Gasper Russo Audree Roeque Louis Madore Ruth Nahmens Della Angel Cecil Bishop George Miura Forrest McHenry Zona Harris Roger Mcginnis Alfred Bunje Eugene Stegelmeyer George Bradford Walter Bunje Mr. Burchett, Sponsor Although the auditorium has been useless this year, the stage crew has been very active. The members have had the job of constructing stages in the gym- nasium for aud calls and different programs. They al- so contribute greaty to the success of the one act plays which were given in the tent. Actzvzfzey Band, publication, art and music appreciation, sings, class meetings, dancing, movies, crafts, camping, dra- matics, and athletic competitions have offered, and through the newly inaugurated social activities period, a variety to suit the taste of every student. Margaret Condon,JanetMastri, and Pearl Gilbert were among the first girls to complete craft projects. What would the sings have been without Glory Zahradnik, Laura Mae Hyde, or Ella Levy to play for them? Or the dances without the help ofEst- her Terrv at the piano? Boys seem to have disclosed dramatic talent: Clarence Sharp, Lester Bottoms, Billy Russel, Hubert Luck, Raymond Shorts, and joe Disario. Jacqueline Price, Betty Neelands, Laura Mae Hyde. and Ruth Banks are among the first girls to star. Lorraine Roelofs wins Commendation for library re- creational reading. Ruth Dawson and Hubert McClure promote good spirit in dancing classes. Senior Sings would not be complete without the close harmony furnished by Russell Quigley, ,loc Disario, and Gale Tra ver. Art Appreciation The Art Appreciation Class under the instruction of Miss Chase, has been in the survey of the general field of arts given in lecture form, and illustrated by slides, and other artistic materals. Excursions are held whenever possible. The class has attended: L.A. Museum. St. Vincent's and St. Paul's Churches, and the art buildings at Palos Verdes. Auto Mechanics The seventh period Auto Mechanics during activity period has been one of the most beneficial periods in the whole program. The boys that have taken Auto Mechanics have learned many useful hints that would be a great help to any owner or driver of an auto- mobile. The work dealt mostly with the operation and Care of the engine. The complete ignition system and wir- ing was worked out bv students, with the assistance Drarnatics Activity Group he young daughter, and Roger McGinnis, as the father was next. This play shows how Ted, Rogers right hand man, overcomes his meekness ivhen he thinks that he is rich. At the following performance of the Dramatics, two plays were given for the price of one. The first was "The Marriage Cake" presented by Roger McGinnis, as Henry Wells the lazy, shiftless husband, Mildred Hitchcock, Rogers' wife, andLucille Stroh, the kind- ly neighbor who suggests the way that cures Roger of his laziness. The second was "Rosalie" enacted by "Milt" Everett, the husband, Lillian Smith, his wife, and Vlargaret Floyd, the slow, careless maid. This play was enjoyed bv the students very much. 'Ihey thought that Margaret htted the part perfectly. "Table D'Hote and A LaCarte"the sixth presentation of the Dramatics Class was an amusing plav with an extraordinary plot A clerk from Mr. Peterson's firm who can't change his ways, and who tells his pro- spective bride why he can't is the skeleton of the play. The comedy of the play is furnished by Mr. Petter, portrayed by john Selby. The following parts were taken by Lucille Stroh, the owner of the rest- aurant, Nadine Sherwin, Lulu, the waitress, Eileen Miles, the prospective bride, John McFadden, the clerk,Johri Selby, Mr. Petter, the flutterer, and Roger McGinnis, Mr. Peterson, the business man. Music Appreciation The Music Appreciation Class has met for a ten-week period, and has chosen its own study material from the course of study. The object of the Class is to gain a greater enjoyment of life for its members from the field of music. Needlecmft The Needle Craft class is a leisure time activity in in which the girls chat and work at such things as embrodiery, Crocheting, thats, trimmings, rugsj appliqueing, hooked rugs, quilting and piecing quilts, and cross-stitch. of the instructor. He also tried to give the students some experience on all of the important working parts of an automobile. The time spent by the boys was very profitable. Mr. Austin deserves credit for the way in which he has put over so many things to the boys in such a short time. The Auto Mechanics Class of girls have had a very enjoyable and educational five weeks. Students have learned about the important parts of a car and how they work. They have learned to repair the differen- parts which cause a great deal of inconvenience to the modern driver. Mr. Austin has been instructing the Class Dmfzcmg Clam The 7th period Dancing Class is advancing satisfact- orily due to the efforts of the teacher, Mrs. Morse. Seveal steps have been learned in the waltz and fox trot and the students are endeavoring to make their dancing smooth and graceful. At present the Carioca is being learned with great enthusiasm. The music is furnished by Glory Zahradnik and Alice Schumacher. Dmvzazricf The High School, being very fortunate in obtaining a tent after the earthquake ruined the Aud, was able to witness a few entertaining plays. The hrst in the series was "Thank you Doctor," a one-act play presented by "Milt" Everett as the Doc- tor, Audree Rocque, a society crook, Lillian Smith, a young nurse, Dick Colburn, a jewel salesman, and Guy Rowell, the half-crazy detective. A couple of New York society girls who are being wooed by two ardent wooers are the Characters around which the one-act play, "Romance is a Rac- ket," is based. The following parts are taken by: Guy Rowell, an Italian innkeeper, "Milt" Everett, a hand- some lover, Genevieve Riley, La Preal Harris, and Ruth Nahmens, as three girls who are traveling in Europe with Virginia Mikelson, the chaperon. Dick Colburn, as Virginia's nephew, completes the cast. "Help Yourself," presented by Olive Bell Huber, the grand lady of Post Avenue, Ray Stredel, the million- aire's nephew, Ted Adzovich, the hero, Pat Baker. Publimtzonf We feel that the Publications period this year has been a great success. Under the inspiring leadership of Mr. Andrews this seventh-period class has learned what great success cooperation can bring This year the Publications period took a great part in the work of collecting, creating and adjusting diff- erent things that could help make our Annual more desirable and enjoyable. The seventh-period class consists of thirty-eight pupils. Mr. Andrews' assistants werejean Hudson and Georgie Higgins, vocational students. jean engineered the binding department, while Georgie took charge of type setting department. The Annual this year is of a different tvpe than in previous years and if the students of Torrance High show their appreciation the members of Publications will find ir ample award for their labor.

However, this diiiiculty is rapidly being over- come, and ,with a successful carnival, enough funds should be available to complete the station equipment. fypewffzrzng for Lezsare Typewriting for leisure: One peek into the typewrit- ing room during the activity period discloses a room full of potential typists industriously at work. 'lhese wide-awake students are reading between the lines- they know that themes neatly ty pewritten will receive a better grade, that the instructor will be favorably predisposed toward typewritten work. As the subject of Penmanship has been relegated to the background, so Typewriting has forged to the front, and today finds Typewriting one of the most popular subjects in the program of studies. Typewriting for leisure or personal Typewriting has recently although it was used personally by "Mark Twain" years ago. Mark Twain first demonstrated a personal use by typing the first manuscript ever to be Written on a typewriter. Not only has the demand of the modern business world made Typewriting one of the most important subjects in the curriculum butTypewriting is becoming increasingly important in carrying on personal affairs , both socially and in the home. It is almost indispen- sible in present day communication. Tennis The Tennis Activity Class is a live-week course for beginners.

Each of the forty members of the Torrance chapter have met certain prescribed require- ments and have successfully passed the F.F.A. initia- tion. Their membership entitles them to enter in pro- ject Competition, judge at the state and County fairs, and to participate in all local, county, and state F. EA activities. In order to win an F.F.A. letter, a member must compete in three county fairs or qualify for the state finals. The chief aim of the Club is to promote leadership, and a practicable, knowledge of Agricul- ture and its many phases. Both day and night meet- ings are held. At all meetings a part of the time is spent for entertainment. Prominent speakers on For- estry, Water Conservation, and other current agri- cultural topics have been obtained on many occas- ions. The EF A. Caster Oil Bill Billies, led by their talented leader Martin Kalina, furnished music on many occa- sions. Each F.F.A. meeting is preceded by a five-minute opening ritual.

'Q P34 .lf ill at lla j u'- Hoover Dam Project ln an unused corner of the garden on the High School grounds, the ground was broken for the most signif- icant project ever undertaken at Torrance High School. This project is a miniature Hoover Dam, the work on which will develop as the work on the real dam progresses. The program for the ground-breaking began with the School song, played by the band. After that Mr. Casey presented Principal Waidelich, who discussed the sig- nilicance and the importance of this project He ex- plained that all the seven wonders of the world will be obliterated by this dam. He explained further that this dam is so huge that the Woolworth building would be swallowed up in the gorge in which it is being built. Mr. Waddingham and Mr. Merrill demonstrated sev- eral instruments to be used in the construction of the dam, and explained many technical details of the project. : - i E a 5 5 I E s e s j 5 j 2 Mr. Waidelich then introduced three prominent mem- bers ofthe community: Mr. White, Editor ofthe Tor- rance Heraldg Mr. Jensen, City Attorney and a direct- or ofthe Metropolitan Water Districtg and Mr. Con- ner, Mayor of Torrance. The ground was then broken by Mayor Conner, and as the band played "The Star Spangled Banner" the program was closed. It is the opinion of the Faculty sponsors that partici- pation in the construction of this project will an in- valuable experience to the students. The English class- es will be drilled in the vocabulary ofthe project, and Mathematics classes will make calculations for amounts of material needed for its construction. Students are looking forward to working on this pro- ject with great enthusiasmg and under the able super- vision of the Faculty it will surely be a success.

The classes are under the direction of Mrs. Hazeltine Wyvell, and with the help of Mrs. Bell, who has charge of the cafeteria and lunch stand, they do an admirable job every morning that school is in session. Using the hrst four periods of the clay, the Cooking Classes prepare lunch for the Faculty and for the stu- denst, lunch stand. Miss Collershlunior Cooking class also contributes,its help to the preparation of salads and various extra dishes for the days' menu. Some of the Vocational classes' outstanding accom- plishments of the past school year have been the preparation of the World friendship Club Banquet and the National Educational Week Banquet. The latter was a preparation for two hundred people and was held at the Womens' Club on Friday, April, 27 1934. The IQ34 Annual A great many doubts and fears on the part of the Faculty advisors and staff were relieved when the 1934 Torch was in the hands of the long-expectant Torrance High School Student Body. A late start and a great advance in prices seriously handicapped its being put out. Perhaps no other issue of the Torch has ever been put out with the aid of so much "home talent" and so little professional assistance. The printing, bind- ing, art work, and even photography was done right here at school, under the supervision of Mr. Andrews, Chairman of Publications and Printing in- structor, Miss Ethel Burnham, English sponsor, Mr. Haig, Director of Student Body finance, Miss Chase, Art instructor, Mr. Wright and his Camera Club, and Miss Vaubel, Advertising sponsor. A supreme effort has been made to make this issue of the Torch illustrative of our life here at Torrance High. A chapter devoted to achievements has been added to give full credit to the various departments which have made any noteworthy progress. Therefore, the greatest hope of the stafl is that the students will find this Annual, especially in later years, an accurate reminder of this year in high school.

By ra! we dedicate the Clubs Chapter of our Torch. Upon him rested the leadership of that organization of courageous men who braved the hazards ofthe unexplored, frozen South. He is an example of adventurous aggressive- ness, a quality which is admirable not only in individuals, but in organizations as well. From the beginning of time there have been men who are leaders of men. To one of these, Richard Byrd, who explored Little America and gave it its name, we dedicate this chapter. ,fN,' i , 5.-.s,!, ' L ff, Worlvl Friendship Officer: Firrr S':mc.rter Second Semnlcr President George Kubo Alice Burger Vice-President Willard Barnett Esther Terry Secretary Norma McCormick Ruth Nahmens Treasurer Cecil Bishop George Bradford Reporter jimmy Lee Dorothy Jensen The World Friendship Club, under the sponsorship of Mrs. Granger and Miss Eva jones, is one of the largest and most popular clubs at Torrance High. The members are elected into the Club by a committee, and the mem- bership is limited to fifty. The members must be either Juniors or Seniors. The object of the Club is, as the name implies, to promote world friendship and peace. A portfolio was received this year from Holland in return for one which the Torrance Club sent three years ago. The Club was much interested in the Dutch Friendship Club song and adopted it for their own Club. The annual World Friendship banquet was held this year in honor of Mrs. Granger's birthday and had as its theme "Smiles." Alice Burger, President of the Club, represented Tor- rance in the District World Friendship Oratorical Contest and received second place. Alice won first place last year in the district. The Club is now working on a portfolio to send to Australia. tix' .WK t. eh. , .

Activities that had been practically failures in former years were revived and put over very successfully and satisfactorily. The Varsity Club has been given the responsibility of certain discipline enforcements throughout the School, and this plan is working with unpredicted success. The Club has been organized on a semi-military basis, with the President in charge as Captain. He has the sole power to appoint his Lieutenants and inflict penalties on Club members who fail in their duty. The Varsity Club sponsored several boxing bouts and the proceeds, which total over one-hundred dollars, were presented to the School to be used for athletic equipment for the coming year. The Club has engaged in many successful activities such as the annual and semi-annual banquets, the long anticipated initiations, the annual Varsity Dance, and several smaller activities which have benefitted all concerned. The Varsity Club feels grateful to the Student Body of Torrance High School for their fine cooperation with the Club during the work carried on in the past year.

Miss Kathryn Klein, our former gym teacher, left Torrance High during the Christmas holidays to be married. The present instructor and sponsor of the G.A.A. is Miss Rae Bent. Miss Bent is well liked by all the girls, and has carried on the work of the classes and Club very successfully. Key Club Ojicerr Firrt Semertzr Second Scmuter President Willard Barnett Kenneth Fess Vice-President LaVern jones Kenneth Haslam Secretary Thomas Rogers George Bradford Treasurer Carl Paxman Homer Kirkpatrick The main objectives of the Key Club are to help the members to choose the trade or profession that they will follow after they graduate from high school, and to create a higher standard of sportsmanship and citizenship. The members of the Club are aided by speakers from the various crafts, trades, and profess- ions. The Club sponsors two social functions during the school year, a stag banquet at the close of the Fall semester and a mixed banquet in the Spring at which time the ofiicers for the following semester are install? ed. 1 A high financial standard is maintained by the quaint old method of iining the members for theirx various misdemeanors during meetings. ,ii X xx, ,, A few of the more interesting speakers were Mir. Cochrane, Doctor Bishop, and Mr. Moore. Mr. Coch- rane spoke to the boys on the opportunities in store for Agriculturists. Doctor Bishop spoke in a very in- teresting manner on the dental profession. Mr Moore, General Manager of the Southern California Edison Company, gave a very interesting talk on the oppor- runities in the electrical Field.

The or- ganization provides talent for aud calls and on occa- sion has "filled in" between acts when more than a one-act play was presented in the tent. Girls' trios, boys' quartettes, tap dancing, "black-out" skits, radio imitations, accordion solos, individual readers, and soloists have from time to time performed for the Variety Club. It is hoped that students with special talent will join the Club, thereby making it possible to locate on short notice talent available for aud calls, parties, and enter- tainments. The opportunity of appearing before an audience is invaluable, and no one with talent should deny himself or herself that privilege. Zglfen Saba? Many good times are to be had in the Spanish Club. The name of the Club is gQuien Sabe? All the members try to speak as much Spanish as possible. This means that the President and the Secretary have to give their reports in Spanish. After all business has been transacted Spanish games are played and Spanish songs are sung. The most pop- ular song is "Mi Gustan Todos." The most popular game is the Pinata. A very nice Christmas party Was held at which the Pinata was the chief entertain- ment. The Pinata is a paper bag decorated with color- ed paper and is filled with candy. A member is blind- folded and armed with a stick. Every one gathers in a circle and when the blindfolded person hits the bag with the stick the candy falls out and then everyone rushes for the candy as it falls. The members are: Talmadge Ulrich, Raymond Shorts, Albert Andre, Donald Haynes, Herbert Smith, David Clark, Herman Hadler, Doris Pullman, Toshi Sumiu- uaga, Eric Chaplin, George Nakamra, Melvin Smith. Commercial Club The Commercial Club is a new organization at Tor- rance High School. Its purpose is to encourage stu- dents in the commercial line of work. So far it has been very successful. During the first semester the members visited the Frank Wiggins Trade School and had the privilege of seeing the many interesting departments in this in- stitution. Miss Monette Todd from the Los Angeles Board of Education attended one of the meetings and gave a very interesting talk on opportunities for the Com- mercial high school graduate. We expect to intro- duce many more interesting speakers to entertain our Club. The Club is sponsored by Miss Margueritejones. Inter N of "Inter Nos," the Latin Club, has had many interest- ing meetings in the past year. The members have been studying a course of Roman history from the time, 713 B.C., the period ofthe Kings, to the Republic. The main things taken up were the wars, great men, and famous events of each period. Among some of the most interesting talks given was one by James Shidlet on Origin of the Government, one by Dorothy Shaw on the Second Punic War, and the Character of Hannibal, and a book report by Fern Wright about Tombs of the Romans. The Latin Club has made plans for a Roman play to be given in the tent. It has always been customary for the Club to have a Roman banquet each year and for each member to come dressed as a famous Roman citizen and to give a brief talk on whom he represents. There is an old say- ing, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do," and therefore at the Banquet the food is served in the manner in which the Romans were served and songs are sung in Latin between courses.

This is the first year the club membership has been open to everyone who wished to join. Previously, new members were accepted only after the club and faculty had voted to invite them. An annual tea-dance reception for the graduating sen- iors is planned by the club. Also the monthly meet- ings in the future will be enlivened by entertainment of different sorts. Fiybermem Club Having had one successful year, the Fishermen's Club expects to come back nexst year with a still more suc- cessful season. In the first term of the club, it was hard to get things going, but by the second semes- ter, Mr. Austin, the sponsor, started traveling at a good rate of speed. An equipment salesman gave a talk and illustrated it with the newest equipment. Mr. Austin showed how to make sinkers by molding them in sand. He also mapped out a contest in which everyone participated. A prize was given at the end of the contest, which included pole wrapping, casting, largest fish caught in surf, largest fish caught off pier, etc. This contest was judged by Mr. Casey, Mr. Tice, Mr. Burchctt, and Mr. Austin. Current E veuzir Club The work of Torrance Forensic Forum this year has been to study and discuss the various topics of cur- rent local, national, and international happenings. Social problems especially were studied. Last semester the most interesting work was a debate on "Should We recognize Russia. ' 'Members have been divided into committees this semester, each committee studying a certain phase of world events. Mrs. Stella Young is the sponsor. Rifle Club This is the first year that the Rifle Club has been in existence. Under capable officers and with Mr. Mer- ril as advisor, the Club has met with success in every- thing that it has attempted to do. The members find this Club very enjoyable, as well as an aid in learning good sportsmanship.

During the course of the year many interesting speakers have spoke on such scientific things as Photography, Naval Archi- tecture, Radio, Moving Pictures, Talking Pictures. etc. The members have taken or expect to take two or more years of science and are eager to know more of this useful subject.

When the Library Club was being organized, Mrs. Henderson, from the Torrance City Library, gave a talk about books and authors. She told us about books and authors which will always be remembered, and some which'are popular, but will soon be forgot- ten. After the second regular meeting in which the officers were elected a Christmas party was held. At special intervals such as holidays and great mens birthdays, books on that certain topic will be chosen by the members of the Club for the use of pupils in the school. Reports on books will be printed in the T.N.T. Reports on books will also be kept in the card catalog for future reference. The show case may also be decorated. Pins for the Club were chosen. They are in the shape of a book with the letters L.C. on them. Many other things are planned for this Club, and it will probably be one of the most interesting and helpful clubs in the school.

Archery Club Ojimtr Firrt .fzmerfer Second .femeucr President Mr. Tice Betty Dalton Secretary joan Klink jean Hasking Treasurer Betty Dalton Delaine Crook Reporter Philip Jensen The Archery Club has been organized for two semes- ters. The purpose of the Club is for the students to be able to become skillful with the use of a bow and ar- rows. The Club members each made their bow and arrows during the lirst semester in order to save mon- ey. The Club has had several shooting matches. They are planning to make a better club in the future. The constitution ofthe Club limits the number of members to twenty. 1,4- Radio The Radio Class conducts various activities involving different phases in Radio. Some of these different act- ivities are construction and testing of radio receivers, learning to use the telegraph key and studying to pass the amateur examination, learning to set up and oper- ate portable transmitters in the event of a disaster such as earthquake or flood, transmitting with port- able apparatus from one part of the School ground to another, and other interesting work. Mr. Waddingham is the instructor, and deserves credit for the enthusiastic response of this class and the progress it has made. Model Airplane Club The Model Airplane Club was started this semester during one of the two recreation periods and is under the leadership of Mr. Casey. The first five weeks were not so successful, although a few mem- bers made some planes and at various times speakers talked on the methods of construction of aeroplanes. The Model Airplane Club has grown steadily until now there are a little over thirty members who are actively engaged in the building of planes. Quite a few of the students have planes which were successful in their flights. The Club officers were elected: President, Paul Kasper, Vice-President, Hubert McClure, and Secretary and Treasurer, Paul Hippik. Sketcloing Club The sketch club consists of High School and Junior High School students who are interested in art and who wish to develop their natural talent. This club meets once a month during school time, and once a week on Thursdays after school. Life drawing is the most interesting to these students. However almost any phase of art may be taken up during this period. J 1 f. . . -W.

I ! TQ Captain Lawrence, who was still a young man when he so no- bly died for his country's honor, and to his galant spirit, we dedicate the Athletic Chap- ter of the 1934 Torch. One phrase made one man famous. This man was Captain James Lawrence, with his his- toric "Don'r give up the ship!" Spoken at a critical moment and indicating an inflexible spirit, it has been taken as representative of the highest type of Amerian character. Neither the fury of battle, the anguish of a mortal wound, nor the horrors of approach- ng death, could subdue his gallant spirit. His dying Words were, "Tell the men to fight harder and not give up the battle! The colors shall wave while I live! Don't give up the ship!" sffltlaleticf in Torrance High In the past year a new era in Torrance High Athletics was born. A spirit was created that bodes no good for future opponents. The Tartar tasting victory, found it much to his liking. No longer does he take the lield with that half-beaten spirit. He goes into the game with an air of confidence that is echoed by an enthusiastic Student Body. Looking into the future, if the athletes and Student Body manifest the same spirit, I see nothing but success ahead for Torrance High athletics. But success cannot be built on idle talk or the work of a few. It needs the whole-hearted co-operation of every individual in the School. It means hard work. It means a continuance of the spirit that has been manifested in the past year. If we all pull together and help one another, if we will accept criticism in the spirit that it is given, if we do not leave the job to the other fellow, if we hold our heads high and shout Torrance High to the rest of the world, our accomplishments will surpass our fondest dream and we will take our rightful place with the leaders of Southern California high schools. BERNARD J. DONAHUE Football Seaton 1933 The football season was not as successful as anticipat- ted. The Tartars won only one game to finish the sea- son ir: a tie for sixth place. Much experience, how- ever was gained by players who will be back next year to carry on for Torrance High. Football was characteristic of the other sports in the sense of a predominant fighting spirit and a "never say die" morale which caused every opponent to fear the Tartars. The highlight of the season occurred when Tor- rance featured a surprise victory over a highly touted Leuzinger squad. This game was hard fought from beginning to finish, and the Tartars deserve a great deal of credit for the spirit which enabled them to come from behind three times and emerge victorious. Torrance High School will be represented in a new league next year and outstanding results are expect- ed, as the Tartars will be able to display their class against schools of corresponding size and strength.

Narbonne 9.6, Torrance o The Torrance Tartars were defeated by the Narbonne Gauchos, 26 to O, in their opening game of the Ma- rine League season. Both teams were evenly matched in size, with Narbonne having a decided edge in ex- perience. Narbonne scored as the result of long runs, the Tartars not being fast enough to catch the speedy Gaucho ball-carriers. The outstanding players for Torrance were two Sen- iors. Captain "Mi1t" Everett was the outstanding defensive player on the field. He was in every play and stopped most of the Narbonne attack. Kenneth Haslam also playeda good defensive game, and his great offensive playing was line to watch. His assign- ments were well handled and his blocking was clean and hard. Torrance zo, Leuzinger IS The Tartars upset the dope bucket and defeated, to the tune of 20 to 15, a heavy Leuzinger team in the most thrilling and spectacular football game ever waged on the Torrance gridiron. The line plunging and open field running of Adzovich and Watson, the passing by johnson, and the pass- catching of javens and McFadden, were the Tartar offensive highlights of the game. ,Everett's defensive work was good, Smith and Hatada each played a line game at guard positions. Adamoli, quarterback, displayed a fine choice of plays. Torrance first scored when McFadden, on an end around play, galloped twenty yards for a touchdown. javens made the second score when he caught a beautiful thirty-yard pass thrown by Johnson. Adzo- vich converted after both scores. The Tartars made their final touchdown in the last minute of play, With the ball on their own twenty-yard line and trailing 14 to 15, Torrance uncorked two passes that resulted in a touchdown and victoryl Torrance o, Banning o. Torrance held Banning to a scoreless tie in the third game of the season. Both teams were evenly matched, and neither could gain an advantage. In the fourth quarter Torrance had the ball deep in Banning ter- ritory, but lack of time prevented them from score- ing.Watson, Adzovitch, andjavens, gained much yard- age, and McFadden caught several long passes for sub- stantial gains. Johnson, Watson, Captain Everett I-latada and McFadden featured on the defensive and were largely responsible for holding Banning's power- ful offense in check. El Segundo 18, Torrance o. The Tartars were surprised by an unexpected defeat of 18 to 0 by the El Segundo Oilers in the fourth game of the season. Torrance was, perhaps, overcon- fident and their opponents were badly under-rated. Torrance was considerably weakened in the second half because of injuries received by I-latada, Haslam, Cap- tain Everett, Adzovitch, Watson, and Shimatsu. Rowellhlavens, Smith, and McFadden played bang- up football throughout the whole game, as did the other fellows who were forced to the side-lines be- cause of injuries received. Gardena 19, Torrance o Torrance lost the fifth game to Gardena, 19 to O. Five regular players were on the bench due to injuries re- ceived the week before, but the reserves put up a good fight. Three long baffling, passes were responsible for the Gardena scores. Guy Rowell played a smashing game at fullback, and despite his shoulder injury, was an excellent ground- gainer. Hatada played a Hue game at guard until he was carried off the field with three cracked ribs. Mc- Fadden and Captain Everett were outstanding defens- ive players. " Milt," in the tinal quarter, intercepted a long forward pass on his own ten-yard line, and raced seventy-five yards before being tackled. Bell 45, Torrance 6. The powerful Bell Eagles completely outclassed the Tartars and walloped them 45 to 6 in the final game of the 1933 season. Torrance, however, was the only team to score on Bell this season. Rowell was the only Tartar back who could penetrate Bell's heavy line, and he played a fine defensive game. Captain "Milt" played the best game of his four- year career as varsity center. He blocked three kicks, recovering one of them in the end zone for the only touchdown scored against Bell this year. This game ended the high school careers of seven players. The following Tartars have cleaned the mud from their cleats for the last time: Captain Milton Everett, Kenneth Haslam, John Elder, Horner Kirk- patrick, Guy Rowell, Emilio Adamoli, and Mas- saki Shimatsu. Basketball Seaman I 9 3 3 The Basketball Season of 1933 produced another hard righting group of athletes at Torrance High School. The teams, while not winning many games, put all they had into every game, and it cannot be said that they lacked a proper fighting spirit. Every game was marked by clean play and good sportsmanship on the part of our boys, and they certainly demand the res- pect and cheers of the Student Body. Clary A ffrfdllfilyfu The Varsity Team this year was composed entirely of veterans. All the players were Seniors and had at least two or three years of experience. The Varsity players were easily one of the outstanding teams in the League, but "Old Lady Luck" was against them, and two victories in league competition were all they could produce.

B ill DCUUV Leuzinger zo, Torrance 8. The Tartars travelled to Leuzinger for their first league game and were defeated 20 to 8. Playing on a dirt court was a handicap to the Tartars, and consequently they lost the game. The team work of the Torrance boys was consistent and functioned well despite the handi- cap that slowed up their offence. Torrance 31, Narbonne 19. Pledged to avenge the defeat suffered by our foot- ball team at the hands of Narbonne, the Tartars xompletely outclassed and walloped our ancient ri- vals in the second game of the season. The final score was 32 to 19. The team played brilliantly and scored an unpredicted victory. "Pansy" Warrington was high-point man of the game, as he swished the ball through the hoop for 16 points. Cornelius Peet and Milan Micanovich star- red by Consistent handling of the ball, and Vladimir Micanovich, with the aid of Ted Yamamoto, held Narbonne's offense in check. El Segundo 18, Torrance 11. El Segundo was the cause of the Tartars' second de- feat of the season. The Tartars were probably a little over-confident, due to their victory over Narbonne, and consequently took it on the chin 18 to 12. The Torrance boys played a listless game, which was marked by errors. The game as a whole was slow and uninteresting. Banning 2.1, Torrance II The Championship Banning quintet took the Tartars into camp 22 to 11 in the fourth game. This game was one of the hardest fought of the season and the com- petition was very keen. Torrance lacked the speed of Banning's fast-charging forwards, but put up the usu- al consistent game. Jordan 30, Torrance IO Another dirt court was the cause of another Tartar defeat. This time the Jordan quintet was victorious by a 30 to 10 score. The day was cold and rainy, but alibis do not count in a victory. All we can say is that the Blue and White warriors were the better team. Torrance 36, Gardena I4 Ten boys, playing their last game for Torrance, swished out an inspiring win over the Gardena Mohicans in the final game of the season. This game was a fine sendoff for a group of fellows who had giv- en their best to bring Torrance High a successful basketball season. To Captain Vladimir Micanovich, "Pansy" Warring- ton, Milan Micanovich, Ted Yamamoto, Cornelius Peet, Ted Merrill, Gasper Russo, Gale Traver, George Kubo, and Vernon Coil, we pay tribute for their fine sportmanship and clean play. Clams JB "Liglatweigbt.r" Our Class B Team, led by Captain Eldon Zanon, made their season fairly successful with victories over Banning and Gardena. Our Lightweight Team was small in stature and number but possessed lots of ability and spirit. Captain Zanon at forward, Susumi Ishilcawa at center, and Ralph Montague at forward were the main factors in team scoring, while Lee Allen, with the aid of Earl Clayton, was responsible for the good defensive show- ing of the team. The prospects for a good basketball team next year look good despite the graduation of Zanon, Ishikawa, Bunje, and Miller. The Lineup Susumi Ishikawa r,,W,, ,,,, , Center , , , W , r,,.

Torrance High School's first Track Champion! That is the distinction gained by the 1934 edition of the Tartar Track and Field Team. The Tar- tars opened their season with a mediocre team and by hard work and consistent practice they were able to work themselves up to an envied position in the Marine League Finals which were held at South Gate on May 3. The Torrance "Spikesters" went through their season undefeated and placed fourth in the finals, defeated only by South Gate, Riis, and jordan, in what proved to be one of the closest and hardest fought meets of the season. "Iron-Man" Zamperini, Hubert Luck, Captain Sumi Ishikawa, Bob Wertz and John McFadden were consistent winners for Torrance throughout the sea- son and in the hnal meet. All the school records, with the exception of three, were broken in the last season, and next year these records are doomed to be erased and new marks put in their place. Bill Acree, Perry Mendenhall, LaVern Jones, Ted Adzovich, George Isbel, Truman Waugh, Edwin Wood, jack Javens, Milan Micanovich and Alfred Bunje were also letter winners for Torrance. Southern Crzlzfomm C.I.F. Family Torrance qualified three men in the Southern Cali- fornia Track Finals held at the Los Angeles Coliseum on May 19. The Tartars came through in fine fashion and made a good account of themselves. Louis Zamperini pulled off the prize act of the day by nabbing the mile run in the world record time of 4 min. 21.3 sec Capt. Ishikawa placed fifth in the low hurdles and Hubert Luck ran a Fine race in the 440 yard, only to be nosed out of a scoring place by a whirlwind finish. Track Torrance 68, Gardena 45 In the first meet of the season the Tartar Track Team trounced Gardena by the score of 68 to 45. Our "Iron Man" Zamperini stretched his winning streak to twenty-five consecutive victories as he won the 880-yard run in 2 minutes 3.6 seconds to establish a new School record. Hubert Luck lacked one-tenth of a second of equal- ing the School 440 mark when he negotiated the distance in 54.1 seconds. Captain "Sumi" Ishikawa was high-point man of the meet with fifteen points to his creditg and the Team, as a whole, served notice that they would be the "squad to beat" in the race for the championship. Los Angeles A.A.U. Relays Ted Adzovich, George lsbel, Hubert Luck, and Louis Zamperini walked off with a victory in the four-man two-mile relay race at the A.A.U. Relays held at Los Angeles High School on March 17. This team covered the distance in 8 minutes 34.7 sec- onds to lead their competitors to the tape by almost 20 yards. The Tartar four-man eight-hundred-and-eighty team finished in third place due to an error on the part of an ofhcial. The team, however, ran the distance in 1 minute and 34-5 seconds to hang up a School record in this event. Bob Wertz,John McFadden, Bill Acree and Hubert Luck made up the personnel of the team. Torrance 51 8-10, Narbonne 50 5-10, Leu- zinger 27 7-10 The fighting Torrance Tartars cleared another hurdle in their race for the Marine League Championship by defeating Narbonne and Leuzinger in the third meet of the season.

The time also bettered the official Marine League record for the four-lap event. Alfred Bunie featured with a surprise second in the mile run. Hubert Luck also continued his undefeated march by copping the 440 yard dash in 52.7 seconds. Luck also won the 100 yard dash and he was largely re- sponsible for the victory of the relay team. Captain "Little Tarzan "Ishikawa leaped to a new school record in the broad jump when he stretches out for a might leap of 19 ft. 11 in. Torrance 65 5-6, Narbonne 52 2-3, Jordan 7 1-2.

The team won its first four games and dropped the final one, a championship af- fair, to Gardena by a close score. Largely through the efforts of Carl Paxman, the out- standing pitcher of the Marine League, baseball inter- est was revived at 'lorrance High. Baseball made an excellent showing and Carl should be commended for the light he put up to retain it. The team was made up of inexperienced players who should be congragulated on their fine work and play- ing ability. Guy Rowell, Carl Paxman, Takashi Ki- yomura, john Mc Fadden, Gar johnson, Kenneth Haslam, Bill Cunningham, Charles Williams, Earl Smith, Frank Nakaba, and Harry Lauver composed this squad of hard working "bat swingers." Torrance 9, Jordan 7. In the opening game of the Marine League season, Torrance conquered Jordan 9 to 2. "Irish" McFadden featured at the bat for Torrance, driving in three runs. Carl Paxman pitched a brilliant game of ball, allow- iwg only four hits and striking out fifteen batsmen. Torrance 8, Leuzinger 7 Torrance downed Leuzinger, last year's champions, in the second game. The contest was hard fought with heated rivalry on both sides. Cunningham, McFadden, and Haslam were the big batting guns for Torrance, while Rowell played a consistent game behind the plate. Kiyomura started the mound for Torrance, but was later replaced by Paxman, who struck out seven and allowed four hits in the innings he pitched. Torrance 6, Narbonne 5 The Tartar"horse hidersnsank the Narbonne Gauchos in the next battle. The game was close. and the score was not determined until the last man had been thrown out. The whole team played consistent ball, and Paxman continued his brilliant mound perfor- mance by striking out twelve batters and limiting Narbonne to six hits. Torrance Io, El Segundo 8 Continuing their winning streak, the Tartars downed the El Segundo Oilers in the fourth game. Paxman pitched superlative ball and would have held his opponents to very few runs had it not been for errors on the part of his team mates. El Segundo was held to six hits and eleven went out via the "fan out" way. Gardena 7 Torrance 4 In the final game of the season Torrance and Gardena waged a terrific battle for the league championship. Torrance lost the game on errors clue to inexperience. Paxman continued his steller pitching performance by whifhng eight batman and establishing himself as "strike-out-king" ofthe Marine League Gag The Tartar Golf Team "birdied" its way through a very tough schedule to land in the top position in the Marine League Golf race this season. The Golf squad, this year, lived up to all expectations and dis- played true championship form. The Torrance golfersk won the championship without losing a match, and chalked up six victories, which, added to the five victories achieved last year, gives the local boys an envied record of eleven wins without a defeat. Most of the credit, for the great showing of the team, must go to Captain Joe Disario. joe has the true Tar- tar fighting spirit, and he always came through when a victory was very much needed to win a match. Joe has been the outstanding golfer in the Marine League for the past four years, being defeated only once in league competition. A record of 18 victories and 1 de- Q feat in four years marks Ioe as a real "Bobby jones" The Tartar Golf Teams that have represented Tor- rance in the past years also hold somewhat of a re- cord. The "divot diggers" boast a record of 16 victor- ies, 2 defeats and 1 tie. The team was composed this year of Captain Joe-N x I l ,s slx A QB N N XR .N RX '!v.l'9,fL.f A-Q! N x XX YN Q. Disario, first man and four-year letterman, Kenneth N Haslam, second man and three-year lettermang Bud Bradford, third man and three-year lettermang jim Grubbs, fourth man playing his first year on the team, and Roger McGinnis also playing for the first time. The team is coached and sponsored by Mr. Burchett.

X Tennis Season I9 34 The Tartars Tennis squad, not to be outdone by the other Torrance teams, added another championship to those already achieved this season. ' The Torrance "racketeers" have won their five matches by consistent play and complete knowledge of the game. All Torrance teams of the past year have contributed greatly to the success of the Tartar Ath- letic season, and the Tennis Team has certainly done its share. The highlight of the season occured in the match with E1 Segundo, runners up to the championship. The match was not decided nntil the last set. The Tartar Doubles Team, undefeated this year, came through and Torrance emerged victorious with an overwhelming score. The team this season is com- posed of veterans who have gained considerable know- ledge of the game during the past three years, due to the expert coaching and advice of Mr. Waddingham, tennis instructor. The lineup is as follows: First Singles: Homer Kirkpatrick Second Singles: Junior Lane First Doubles: Kenneth Fess, Ted Merrill Second Doubles: Francis Mowry, Dale Howe Alternates: Walter Bunie and Eugene Stegelmeyer Results of Matches Torrance 8 jordan 1 Torrance 9 Leuzinger 0 Torrance 8 Narbonne 1 Torrance 7 El Segundo 2 Torrance 14 Gardena 11 Girly' Sporty Basketball This year owing to the new school system, the girls earned their G.A.A. points in a new way. Every Tuesday night the girls stayed after school and played basketball. Miss Klein chose the different class teams from the girls that went out every play night. The Junior Class won first placeg so all the girls on the junior Team received 100 points. The other girls who went out every Tuesday night received 25 points each. The girls were allowed to earn G.A.A. points by playing basketball with the different class teams during gymnasium period, the winning team of these games receiving 25 points. The team that won first place in Archery or Tennis received 10 G.A.A. points. Speedbazll The second seasonal sport of the year for the girls of G.A.A. was Speedball. There were two teams, Betty Stevenson's and Myrtle Gregg's. Gregg's team won by a large margin. The members on her team each re- ceived 10O points, and she 25 points in addition. All the girls who reported to two-thirds of the practice games received 25 points. There was a good show of interest and pep, and both teams were more evenly matched in their playing than the scores indicated, Baseball The two teams who played Baseball after school were janet Mastri's and Margaret Kibbe's. Kibbe's team won, but they were both very evenly matched. Duc to the wet weather baseball was the third seasonal sport. All the girls showed great enthusiarn in play- ing baseball. Hockey After Baseball the girls played Hockey for their class and afternoon sport. Many girls were seen around school with black eyes and sore shins, but what won't girls do for the thrill of sports! All girls hated to see hockey season end. Altogether Girl's Sports this year have been very successful. They appreciate the time and patience Miss Bent has given to them in the developement of girl sports, and hope that she has enjoyed them half as much as they have her. far 1 , 1 f 1 1 1 . 1 .X f Q 115271 In .

The White-Haired Boy BY B11 L BURKERT, B -12 His name was Bob Park. He had been work- ing in the same ofhce, in the same chair, and at the same desk for seven years, and he was getting pretty sick of ir. Yes, he was all burn- ed up! He had a good mind to quit. But then, jobs were pretty scarce, he didn't know where he could get another. Besides, he needed the sixteen dollars he was getting every week. Still, why shouldn't he have a better job? He was smart, he did all his work well, he made few mistakes. The least they could do was to give him twenty dollars a week. The vibrations of a heavy voice in a great deal of anger were forcing their way through the thick wall of the boss's office. Young Park sat up-sounded like someone was get- ting the gate. Miss Morley, the boss's good- looking young secretary, hurried from the door marked "Private" She was in tears. Evidently she had been Fired, because she picked up her hat and coat and left the oflice. Ordinarily she didn't leave until five o'clock, it was only four-thirty then. Miss Wilson, the little stenographer who worked at the desk next to Bob's, came from the boss's office. "Whats the matter in there? Did Morley get the gate?" Bob asked. "I'll say she did!" was the reply. "She was supposed to send that contract for the job in Arizona last week, and she didn't." L'Can't she send it now?" ' "No!" she exclaimed, 'alt had to be there by twelve noon tomorrow." "Oh!lsee." Bob jumped to his feet with a start. "Whats the matter with you?" said Miss Wilson. l'You look like you've seen a ghost or some- thin '." Not answering, Bob ran into the boss's ofiice. The boss didn't see or hear him enter, he was evidently in deep thought. Bob shouted: "Mr. Robinson! Mr. Robinsonll can get that contract to Arizona by twelve noon tomor- row. lf I leave now with a fast car I can just make it." The boss became excited. If the contract could be signed it meant five years of pros- perity for the J. P. Robinson Company. "Do you think it's possible? You can try. Take my car and hurry. Don't waste any time." Within five minutes Bob Park was driving the long, yellow roadster from the garage. Two hours later he was speeding along the highway. He was tense, every muscle was strained. Along about midnight he began to relax. As he sped along with his eyes glued to the dark road ahead of him, he began to think. Here he was--a sixteen-dollar-a-week ofiice boy--the only one who could pull the Com- pany through a crisis. Well, he guessed he'd get a better job after this. He'd even bet they'd give him twenty-five dollars a week now. Yeah---everbody else gets the breaks and the pay checks, and he's the only one who can deliver the goods. Well, now it was his turn---he was getting the breaks now---this was his big chance and he wasn't going to muff it. He would get there by twelve 0'- clock or die trying. The long yellow roadster whisked through the small town and pulled to a halt in front of the only three-story building there. The big clock on the side of the brick structure said five minutes to twelve. Well, he had The Cow BY MARTIN fFEETJ KALINA.

MA TORRANCE- - ----- ---- -------- - - ---------------- ----........ W - xh ', jigsaw Puglia BY JIMMIE LEE, A-12 In most countries, my kind has never been heard of, but in this land of liberty where they say all men are created equal, myself and anything like me are the centers of attrac- tion and the new fad with everyone. This may be a land where men are created equal, but we jig-saw Puzzles are surely not. Of all the Puzzles I have talked with, none has been worked so much as myself. I've been put together and torn apart so much that I actually believe ifl should ever get a bad case of the hiccoughs, I would shake myself apart. Oh, it's a terrible fate to be in my position. You probably wonder why Ihave been used so much, well, I'll tell you. After my owner and his family had given me the once-over, they sent me to some of their relatives in Sheboygan,Wisconsin, and, as I was the first of my kind ever to see that part of the country, I was given a work-out by everyone from two to one hundred and two, and, even at that, I think I'm lying - one way or the other. Babies cried for me, old folks sighed for me, and even boys and girls and sensible people sighed for megand, so, one by one, they tore me apart and threw me together again until I expected my heart to fail me, butl did live through it, as you take for granted. I was worked by every hayseed politician, radio announcer, and sane person in town. Ican never forget a certain house that I was taken to. It was early one Saturday morning that I was carried into this household, and although I d1dn't know it at the time, I was to be manhandled, womanhandled, babyhandled, and dismantled for a week to come. I've been called some mighty bad names in my life, but, oh, you should have been with me on this particular occasion. Parrots and sailors had nothing on that family. I was cursed up, cursed down, cursed at, and cursed about until I felt like cursing myself, but oh! did my picture turn green when I had to grin and bear it? You see, I am very modest, and I blush easily. As a matter of fact, when my picture was put on my face, my face turned about seventeen different colors, and, as far as I know, has been that way ever since, but I must get back to my adventures. Several times I thought that I was going to be thrown into the fire by this profane family of murderers, but Iguess they remem- bered that my life did not belong to them. and so, they did not end it by such a drastic action. The next family I was turned over to was surely of contrast to the last one. This fam- ily was a nice, easy-going one, and let me tell you, I had a rest in this house that was most royally welcome. When these people finished putting my numerous, puzzling pie- ces together, they all looked at me and smiled, and I have often wondered what beautiful picture they were looking at. The reasonl wonder is that I have never been able to get in the right position to see what my picture looked like. Strange, isr1't it? ' . I Once I was talking to my cousin, Crossword Puzzle, KI know it sounds funny, but we Puz- zles are a big familyj and he said that new fads come and go with the same speed. He told me his story. He said that his career took place in a miniature-golf course, and it clidn't even last an evening. He has hated golf courses ever. since then, because he was in one when he lost his job in this depression. QI believe the Puzzles on his side of the family have the shortest careers of any of the Puz- zles anyway j Nevertheless he has the laugh on that cer- tain golf-course right now because he told me that it was nothing but a weed patch now, and that the "old greens there ain't what they used to be."Well, here we are off again so we'll have to get back on the subject. Ihave been transferred from good families to bad families off and on ever since I left my girl. Oh, no, no! that's ai different story, what I really mean is ever since I left the quiet, peace-loving family. My experiences have been many, since then, but I will not attempttoirelate any of them except the last one. One day I was taken to an old and disrupted looking building. When I got inside, much to my astonishment, I found out that it was a home for disabled soldiers. Was I happy? I lay-about home on the tables and chairs, taking it easy for three long weeks, just pon- dering over the past, experiences of my tire- some yet happy life. ' Q " -?'i ' A ' I I was never mishandlcd or thrown about in any way, and I was not sworn at oncefun- less it was behind my back, but even good things canft last forever, and my case was no exception to the rule. I soon found out that what my cousin said about new fads going as soon as they came was true, and I found it out from personal experiences I Even though I was not mishandled nor treat- ed badly while in use when this group .of very hospitable soldiers tired of me, which they did finally, my pieces were somewhat scattered about. Iwas, at last, picked up, swept up, and as far as the soldiers were con- cerned, all " washed up," and put inumy little yellow box. I was taken to the attic and placed upon a high shelf, and there sat for-well, I really don't know how long I did sit there. A It was so dark in that attic that I lost all track of time. But, anyway, one day some- one eame up to the attic and put a large box on the same shelf with me, and, in so doing, knocked me off the shelf, and Ifell down in between the walls of his home for disabled soldiers somewhat disabled myself. , To this day I am lying where I fell, just ly- ing by myself. In fact I'm the only one there is to lie to now. And, so, I have told you my history, my bad luck, and many other lies, but, let me tell you, it's no fun to end up as a "fugitive from a lame gang." . .

It was green and sturdy and it reminded one of something or ratherof something living fully and beautifully. The spot on which the pine stood commanded a perfect view of the valley below which was dotted with green patches of cultivated land and graceful, swaying poplars. This day I had climbed the hill to look more closely at the lone pine, and as I drew nearer to the spot on which it stood, I saw a man. I knew his visit to the tree was not prompt- ed by curiosity as was mine, for his eyes seemed to see nothing as he looked in its direction, he didn't see me until I was very close to him. I began to feel as ifI had walked on forbidden ground, and I felt not at all easy about it. "I saw it from below," I ventured to say, "and it was so beautiful I wanted to see it better." "It is that," he answered quietly."It would be a fitting monument to anyone,-and it is to him." I nodded, although I didn't quite understand him. I was wondering how old this man could be. I imagined he had looked the same ten years ago. He was tall and powerfully built, and his hair was thick but quite gray. "Who was he?" I finally asked cautiously. "I'd like to tell you about him, young lady," he answered. "That is,-what there is to tell." "He was a wonderful lad, and everyone loved him. He was the favorite son of my father, and the two of them were much devoted to one another. "My father and I gave him his early school- ing so he could spend his time among the hills which he loved so much. HBut even then he only studied because my father wanted him to. His mind was always with the things outdoors, book learning didn't hold much for him. "Well, as he grew older, father had taught him all he could, so he sent him to the city to get a better education. For the first time in his life my brother openly rebelled at his father's wish because he so hated leaving all this." The man said this including the whole country side in a sweeping gesture. The parting was quite as hard for my father but he thought he was doing the right thing for the boy. "My brother lost his health fast in the city. Finally they sent him home and he was very sick, he died before long." His voice was even more quiet now. "About the last thing he did was to make us promise that we would never send him away again. He was buried here because he had al- ways said, as a boy, that he could watch the whole world from here, that is, all his world, and this pine is his monument. "He was silent for a moment, and than he said "I suppose you think it's queer that I've told you this. " He didn't seem to expect an answer so I didn't reply. It began to grow dark, and there were a few stars in the sky. I glanced at the man, and he was gazing down into the valley. He seemed to have forgotten I was there. "I thank you for telling me the story" I said and I left him. When I had reached the foot of the hill, I looked back at the beautiful pine tree which was now black against the horizon, and this poem of Robert Louis Stevenson's came to my mind. it Under the wide and starry sky, Dig the grave and let me lie Glad have Ilived, and gladly die, And I lay me down with a will. "This be the verse you grave for me: Here he lies where he longed to be. Home is the sailor, home from the sea, And the hunter, home from the hill." Isolation Serene are the majestic glaciers in their tranquil mood, As they lie on the edge of a virgin solitude. Immense are the floating bergs as they drift among the floes Seeking their solitary course where the aurora glows Chaste are the fields of ice in the great white waste Where a portion of insignificance man does taste. --Russell Quigley Haley BY JAYNE TRALLER, A-11 There are holes and holes and more holes, big holes, little holes, good holes, bad holes, key holes, dark holes, holes in dough- nuts, holes in pockets, and holes in cheese. The world is full of holes, and nearly every- where we go we may get into one of them. It seems to me that the subject of holes has been much neglected. Aristotle, Newton, and Miliken have all overlooked the important problem of holes so I have taken it on my shoulders to enlighten the untutored world about them. One of the most famous of the big holes is the Grand Canyon. Legend has it that this canyon was formed when a Scotchman dropped a nickel into a gopher hole, how- ever, we of more superior intelligence believe it must have been at least a dollar. Little holes are sometimes great nuisances and cause much loss of time and a great deal of trouble. I refer to holes in radiators and gas tanks. Many a motorist has driven along unaware that he is leaving a trail of water or gasoline behind him When he does discover this, however, his face usually turns violently red, his eyes bulge out, and he emits a string of words which cause his feminine passengers to discreetly cover their shocked ears. This only shows what a bad effect holes may have on the moral of the world. As little holes go, the holes in a golf course are important. People spend huge amounts of money and time violentlv' trying to knock a little ball into these holes. To some people, a "hole in one" is an event that makes an epoch in history. The hole in a ring is a very convenient thing. What good would a ring be without a hole in it? The man who first discovered holes probably never realized what they would someday mean to the jeweler. The blushing bride would probably blush harder than ever were a nervous groom vainly trying to push a holeless ring onto her finger. Some of the worst holes are those that lie in the ground wickedly waiting to stub a poor toe or strain an innocent ankle. All of the millions of keys in the world would be useless were it not for key holes. Key holes are both useful and harrnful.They have probably helped to prevent thousands of burglaries, but they have been the cause of the chastisement of thousands of little boys who have been caught peeking through them. Dark holes are usually found in nightmares or gruesome pirate tales, but with these lacking, there are still dark wells and caves to terrorize timid souls. How many little boys have risked their lives to gaze into the mysterious depths of a well or to explore the deepest corners of a dark cave. Some holes are mysterious, elusive things. For instance, thereis the hole ina doughnut When a doughnut is eaten, the hole suddenly disappears without being consumed itself. Before our eyes it has vanished into thin air. Such holes as these actually border on the supernatural. As an example ofa bad hole there is a hole in a pocket. How many nickels and dimes and even illustriouslquarters have been lost forever because of the presence of an inviting avenue of escape in someone's pocket! Think of the great sorrow that holes in pockets have caused the world! Swiss cheese depends on holes for its pop- ularity and quality. Think of what a hole means to the cheesemaker. He surely blesses that person who invented it. Holes are even more blessed to the cheese gourmet who specializes in the famous swiss variety. My To be "in the hole" is one of the greatest ignominies that can occur in a person's life. In playing cards, people most often find them selves in this deplorable situation. This usually causes great embarrassment and the misery and discomfort of digging into one's pockets. After stock market crashes or bank panics large numbers of people find themselves "in the hole." Then how painful and tedious it is to climb out! In concluding this learned thesis, I have only one more subject to treat. What is a hole? Can the great scientists and thinkers of the world solve this problem? Perhaps some day there will come into the world a great thinker who can explain the hole, but, nevertheless a hole is a hole and will probably continue to be one till the end of time. Dog I havea little dog named Brownie, His fur is soft and downy. His eyes are blue, And his tale is black, And we all love him, But our old gray cat. He chases cats and sometimes dogs, And he eats just like a great big hog. He likes sweets and candy, And I sure think he's a dandy. -Billie Andrus, B-8 -1 ff Y4' X.
