THLETICS play a vital part in educational insti-
tutions because they bring out many splendid
qualities, chief among them determination, unselfish-
ness, and sportsmanship.
When students can look back over a year of success
in sports, they take pride in their athletic achieve-
ments not because of the downfall of their opponents
but because of the courage and fortitude that have
been shown by their representatives on the Held of
In dedicating this Year Book to sports, let it be
dedicated not to the material success in the matter
of victories but rather to the high qualities of sports-
manship that the athletes and followers of the games
showed in losing as well as in winning.
To be modest in success and to be philosophical
and Without excuse in defeat-these are virtues devel-
oped in competitive sports that we need to hold fast
to throughout all our lives.

-A. G. WAIDELICH.
A. G. WAIDELICH
As the culmination of a year of suc-
cessful athletic achievement, it seems
especially fitting that the annual honor-
ing a class which has contributed so
generously to this success should be
dedicated to the sports.
Just as centuries ago. in ancient
Greece, not only perfection of bodily de-
velopment was demanded of the con-
testant, but also a character free from
serious blemishes. so today the sports
should stand for the best in high school
life, the participants representative of all
that is fine in American youth.
That each succeeding year may bring
about an ever closer approximation to
this ideal is my wish for the student
body and for the many fine young ath-
letes of which it is composed.
IRENE MILLS R OND CASEY
What are you gaining from your leisure time program? How far as your
second year in the leisure time program advanced you toward your go of pre-
paring yourselves as pupils of Torrance High School to make the proper use
of the leisure time which you now enjoy and which you will be enjoying in later
years? Teachers have been putting forth every effort to offer hobbies that will
provide profitable and enjoyable avocations. Student co-operation has been
splendid. The plan is working. The question now faces each individual pupil
in the school: Am I putting forth the best of my efforts to choose the activity
that really appeals to me and that will enrich my life experience?
In these periods of changing emphasis in social, political, and economic rela-
tionships, the problem of guidance for boys and girls toward the fields into
which they will lend their talents is uppermost. Education for the abundant
life, the pursuit of happiness, the full dinner-pail, makes necessary definite objec-
tives. Rarely are these objectives attained. In fact, there is a wide variance.
in educational institutions, between objectives on paper and the program in
actual practice. There have been definite shifts of emphasis in the industrial
world, due to the growing use of the machine. Shifts of emphasis in the social
order are manifested by the President's Security Bill. Our Congress has passed
new bills regulating banks and financial institutions which indicate a changing
standard in our economic order. What does the change really indicate? Simply
that we must shift the emphasis in our own traditional way of thinking. We
must seek guidance even as Counselors seek guidance from every source in order
to meet the new situation in a new way. This is the challenge to all of us.

ARTHUR G. WAIDELICH
I was born in the town of LaFayette, Indiana. I took up mechanical engi-
neering at Purdue. I attended Purdue because it was close to home, and
studied mechanical engineering simply because I couldn't spell electrical
engineering, which I wanted to take, but still can't spell. I substituted for
an instructor at Purdue University during his illness, and thus my genius
as an educator was discovered. However, the shock of discovery killed the
instructor. I also attended the University of Chicago and U.S.C. fEdi-
tor's Note: Mr. Waidelich is an accomplished pianistlj
I was born in the now almost extinct village of Los Angeles. It was dur-
ing the last century on a day so close to Christmas my parents and all our
friends had spent all their money on Christmas presents, so I was the
"forgotten man," as far as birthday gifts were concerned. My favorite
pastime is fishing, which, by the way, is now the pastime of presidents-
f'United States Presidents-not Student Body Presidentsj. This is not
my fault, however. as anyone is allowed to fish if he pays for a license.
Next to fishing, I like apple pie.
MISS EVA JONES
I was born in Burlington, Vermont, several years ago. I ran away to
school between four and five years of age, and was allowed to stay, so I
have been studying ever since. It's an ever-widening process. I regret that
I wasn't born handsome. I like to work, but I dislike too much of it.
My ambition is to have my boys and girls like and learn history, and to
have Fridays come soon. The Annual isn't large enough to hold my
MRS. HAZELTINE WYVELL
I was born in Missouri, and was six years old when I started to school.
My first experience in learning how to cook I can't remember. The most
comical thing I ever do is just to be natural. I have taught five years in
Los Angeles and tive in Missouri.
MISS ELIZABETH PARKS
I was born in Colorado, grew up, Went to school, became vice-principal,
and here I am.
MRS. AMY ELDER BULL
I had the fortune, or misfortune, whichever you may call it, to be born
on the 29th of February on a farm in Kansas. I went to Kansas State
College, and have taught in Kansas, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho,
and California. I am the "Elder" of the faculty. I have two children,
and the funny part of it is that they have both had more birthdays than I.
MISS HELEN COLLER
I was born in South Dakota. My hobby is collecting new cooking recipes.
I love to teach school, and I love to travel, but I dislike having the boys
in my homeroom wear a beard.
MRS. MARJORIE EISCHEN
I am a native daughter of our fair state. I have traveled very little outside
of California because l've heard so much about California climate and I
love the mountains and highway trips here, and mean to know California
first. Perhaps the greatest adventures of my life have been adventures of
the mind and spirit. Since my school days are over, I am beginning to
want an education, most of all, and to realize that it will take a lifetime
to obtain it.

I was born more years ago than I care to remember, in Stockton, Califor-
nia. I migrated to the Southland after high school and four years of
apprenticeship in woodworking and drafting. I worked for four years
as engineer with the Pacific Coast Borax Company at Death Valley Junc-
tion. I almost became a dyed-in-the-wool desert rat when fortune beck-
oned in Los Angeles. I have learned since that fortune has been guilty of
the double-cross. I have been a teacher in three high schools, namely:
Lincoln, Hamilton, and Torrance. I broke the shackles and took a year
off, at which time the Middlewest and East were given the 'once-over'.
I proposed to one girl four times and finally became discouraged and am
still a bachelor.
I was born, raised, and received my high school education in Pasadena.
Before attending the Santa Barbara State Teachers' College, I had planned
to be a printer. I changed my mind and became a shop teacher. Upon
graduating I was sentenced to spend a year at Juvenile Hall as a print-
shop instructor. I also 'subbed' for two years. Then, as it happened, I
proposed, and she accepted. Poor Mr. Casey!
MISS CONSTANCE SOMMER
I was born in Ontario, California: never mind the date. I didn't start to
school until I was eight, and I am still going with no hopes of knowing
when I'll be through all because I can't make A's in "How to Shoot a
Rubber Band," "Cracking Gum," and "Making Spitwads Stick to the
Ceiling." I disliked school so much that I used to hide my brother's and
sister's books, and never have any of my own now. I live with my
mother, and is she grand! She hasn't spanked me since the last time, and
she always wakes me in the morning so I won't be late for school.
MRS. CHARLENE ALLAN
Montana has two claims on me. I was born there, and it was there, in
the first grade, that I decided to teach English in high school. Frozen ears
and frozen noses drove the family to sunny California the year before the
Armistice was signed. Four years at L. A. High, four years at U.C.L.A..
and one year at U. C. were happy ones. Now married andf teaching. My
hobby is writing children's stories, but that's a secret.
MRS. GRACE MORSE
Yes, I was born, but the date doesn't matter. I have been educated, so they
say. My pet aversions are caterpillars and gum-chewers. My hobbies are
riding, tennis, and rhubarb pie. I regret that I was always good in school
because now I have no misdeeds to boast about. My ambition is to live
a life of luxury. My happiest memories are of my foreign travels.
MISS CORA MABEE
I was born in New Brunswick, Canada. The week that the present Senior
A's spent at my cabin one summer vacation shortened my life ten years.
I have a great desire to run a tea room or to pilot an airplane. My greatest
ambition is to get a new B7 class next fall which will equal my graduating
class of S'35.
I wanted to be an electrical engineer, but that was before I fell in love with
'Aggyl She and I have been very happy ever since. Hence, the world
will be forced to struggle on with a future Burbank instead of a Marconi.
I was persuaded to study agriculture at the New Mexico College of Agri-
culture and Mechanical Arts by a group of 'Aggy' students who took a
fancy to me. I immediately found that I derived as much pleasure out of
growing onions as I did in tinkering with a telegraph, so I made horti-
culture my life's work.
MISS RAE BENT
I was born one day in the twentieth century but don't remember the date.
During the falling-down and getting-up stage, I acquired many bumps.
High school and college days were practically a daze-caused by bigger and
better football games, formals, and various courses. And now that the
haze and daze of school are over, I have settled down to foggy days at
Torrance High, with a whistle strung around my neck.
MRS. MABEL TAYLOR BOYNTON
I have enjoyed my many years as Spanish teacher at Torrance High very
much. Have always hated to have the boys change their pants and would
suggest that they carry a set of pencils in each pair. I dislike giving
demerits in the attendance ofiice and am suspicious of boys who are absent
from school with a "stomach egg." When asked what she liked to eat,
Mrs. Boynton replied: "I do not like things that are HOI good to eat, and
most things are good."
A native son of Missouri, but rather likes California because of its ocean.
He had the ambition of going to school and has achieved his success by
raising a fine family. The thing he dislikes most is chiseling political
grafters. He has a very fine hobby of making boats. He is none other
than Mr. James Howard Burchett.
I am afraid that I have now lost a bid to fame. I refer to the fact that I
was born and educated in Los Angeles when native sons were more of a
curiosity than now. My collegiate education was obtained at Stanford
University, with the exception of graduate courses since taken at U. S. C.
I have no particular hobbies except that of trying to help boys and girls
be the type of students they should be. I hope that Torrance likes me as
well as I like it.
HERBERT BLAKE ANDREWS
To retire on a pension is the ambition of Herbert Andrews, print-shop
instructor, who hails from New York. His graduate sport is rummy. and
his hobby, rocks. People who can't mind their own business are his chief
antipathy. Mr. Andrews describes his achievements as "nothing much,"
but we are inclined to feel that his are some of the most outstanding
achievements of any faculty member.
MISS SARAH VAUBEL
A native of Illinois. My brother's enthusiasm for California changed the
thought of vacationing one summer to a desire to become a permanent
daughter. After enioying a couple of years on the campus of U. S. C.,
I welcomed an opportunity to teach in Torrance. My ambition is to
have a more complete understanding of the real nature of the boys and
girls with whom I'm associated. My hobbies are reading and gardening,
and my aversions are slugs, snails. and lunch debris on the school premises.
MISS JOSEPHINE BOECKER
G-ives: Art assignments.
A-mbition: To travel.
M-ien: Refined and serene.
E-vades: Cleaning house and eating spinach.
C1-ives: Questions galore.
A-mbition: Retire on Townsend Pension.
M-ien: Dignified and diligent.
E-vades: Tight shoes.
MISS MARGUERITE JONES
Home State: Vermont.
Ambition: To see the world.
Hobby: Gardening, collecting, amateur photography, travel.
Dislike: Snails and spinach.
Achievements: Lasted thirteen years at Torrance.
MISS IRENE MILLS
Dreaming over once again CHodgsonj
Of the parks to which I've been
If you have forgotten water lilies floating
On a dark lake among the mountains in the afternoon shade CTeasdaleD
Then you have never heard me tell
Of the Yellowstone trip I made
I saw the pines against the white north sky CBrooksj
But that was in Yosemite as we camped near by
I have come out of the haunts of men CWoodj
But there goes that six-day hike again!
The night was creeping on the ground CStephensj
When Zion's brilliant colors we found
And not a single regret CMastersj
Of Bryce's beauties set
But I think that I shall never see CKilmerj
A iollier bunch than you folks can be.
So-Any place does for me CCampbellj
If plenty of comps I happen to see
Do you dare to doubt it? CStephensj
Just let the Seniors argue about it.
MISS ETHEI. BURNHAM
Believe it or not, my early days were spent in hanging from a flying tra-
peze, getting up a circus or show, and reading. I was brought up in the
State of Wisconsin, and my heart still skips a beat at the name. High
school was a whirl of dancing, ice skating, skiing, sleigh-riding, making
fudge, and staying after school to learn the U. S. Constitution for various
escapades. College days at the University of Wisconsin recall ice-boating.
canoeing, basketball, and two weeks of final exams each semester. I vowed
all through my school days I'd never be one of those cross old school-
teachers, but who knows what will happen! It means a lot of fun in
outside activities and interpreting literature, and more or less grief in mark-
ing papers. My hobbies are trying to bring the young niece up correctly,
flowers, and beautiful scenery.
MISS ADA CHASE
Served in the Army for fourteen months. Some of the pleasures of her
life were when she travelled in Europe, attended art school, and went to
Carlsbad Caverns. She worked three weeks at window dressing. She
was a saleslady at Ville de Paris and the Broadway. When she com-
pleted her art course, she had to teach fourth grade for about four days
and teach art to them all day long.
MISS FLORENCE BEHR
G-ives: Out library books.
A-mbition: To raise a bugless garden.
M-ien: Overruled by glasses.
E-vades: Getting up by an alarm clock.
MRS. STELLA YOUNG
Home State: Illinois
Ambition: To swim well enough to dare go riding in our new boat.
Hobby: Going camping.
Achievements: Learning every summer how to drive the car.
MRS. GRACE GRANGER
Home State: Ohio.
Ambition: To get a new car instead of new parts for the 'Chevy' all the
Hobby: Traveling and eating.
Achievements: Sponsoring a very successful World Friendship banquet.
Native of California, but while still too young to protest, taken to Wash-
ington where I remained until the decision was made to enter Occidental
College. Soon discovered college was not a four-year loaf, but required
dough, anyway. Worked awhile. Got married. Entered U.S.C. for two
years, off and on, whence two diplomas and a credential which same might
be located by diligent search. Interests: swimming, job, radio, tennis, etc.,
according to the season.
MISS JESSIE E. WEAVER
My native State is that of Ohio, Mother State of the Presidents. Soon
after arriving in L. A., we, with thousands of other Southern California
people, attended the ceremonies and barbecue in celebration of the break-
water at San Pedro. From that day, San Pedro was destined to become
our home. I graduated with the last class leaving the Old State Normal
School. I later attended a business college and U.S.C. I have pleasant
recollections of my first position at Bishop. The parents delighted in
asking "teacher" out to Sunday chicken dinner, and planned trips galore
to the mountains and lakes. The lure of the High Sierras still draws me
back from year to year.
MRS. EDITH KELLY
After reading several pages of the humorous autobiographies that are
ready for the press, I decided to make mine serious. In my childhood I
lived in Missouri. I have lived in five other states, and, of course, like
California the best of all. My greatest adventures have been college, a
summer tour in Europe, pioneering in Arizona, matrimony, and teaching
in the Los Angeles Normal School, but I have many others quite thrill-
ing. My fairy godmother neglected to make me beautiful or witty, but
did endow me with a liking for Nature and people, books and art, that
makes life most interesting to me. My greatest desire is to have time
enough for my work and for various alluring pursuits that I should like
to make my hobbies.

CLASS PROPHECY S'35
It is the eve of the year 1950, and millions all over the world are cele-
brating the coming of the new year. One of the most hilarious New Year's
parties is going on in a smart Hollywood penthouse, where the Torrance High
Class of Summer '35 is holding its reunion. Our host is none other than the
well-known bachelor and man-about-town, whose name we see so often in
the scandal col-yums coupled with names of wealthy widows, young divorcees,
and lovely actresses. He is hobnobbing in the corner with our former little
angel, lone Green, notorious night club hostess.
Here are three old friends: Martha Greaves, the world-famous aviatrix,
who recently made a non-stop flight around the world: Olive Belle Huber,
society matron, and president of a dozen women's clubs: and Vee Kasper. Vee
tells us that Hubert, who has made his millions from the pretzel business, will
be late, for he is interviewing Jay Slover. who has invented a machine to twist
100.000 pretzels a minute.
Raising a great hullabaloo in the corner is Hal Smith, now turned travel-
ing evangelist, but still trying to revive his old heartbeat, Bettye Stevenson,
who is running a sanitarium for broken-down gigilos. Among her patients
are Wesley Brady, Al Stevens, Raymond Tucker, and John Selby.
Who do you think has been graduated with this class to become the
Great Adviser and tell presidents, dictators, and kings how to run their affairs?
Why. Julian Isen. that learned-looking creature mumbling to himself in the
corner. CWe might have guessed itll
Of course, every class must have its circus performer, and here she is: Jean
Volz, the daredevil trapeze artist, who proceeds to demonstrate her art on a
chandelier. And, not to be outdone by Jeanie, frolicking little Roger Mc-
Ginnis, our old prexy, leaps to another chandelier and, hanging by his toes,
tells us that he is now a member of the Torrance Fire Department and the
star tackle on the football team, which recently defeated the Narbonne Barbers,
coached by Johnny Nady. We don't need to be told that Roger's better half
is the former Miss Janet Mastri. Janet and Roger remind us that we haven't
yet seen the inseparbales. but, peering behind a palm tree in the roof garden,
we find them--Bud and Mary Anne-still holding hands.
Do we hear music? Ah, yes! Those red-headed hot spots of radio,
Waneta Mullen and Margaret Kibbe, who have left their domestic duties be-
hind them to burn up the ether with their blues songs.
Here's a juicy bit of gossip! Remember Elly Levy? It seems 'that while
she was traveling in Arabia, she was kidnapped by a bandit sheik with whom
she fell so violently in love that she decided to stay with him forever.
Our big he-man, Guy Bartels, tells us that he is now doubling in the
movies for Tarzan, and is considering a position as strong man with Barnum
and Bailey, their former strong man, Jimmie Coil, having left to shoot lions
Gossiping in a contented little group are four happy matrons, Bea Riley,
Mildred Lukes, Fern Wright, and Jane Burkett: and in another group, not
quite so contented, are those gay divorcees, Reva Hinkle, Marie Smith, Joy
Heglie. and Maycie George, fighting over that irresistible acme of masculinity,
Bob Wertz, well-known Walteria business man.
And who is this graceful couple tripping the light fantastic in the center
of the room? Adjusting the old specs, and peering closer, we discover that
they are those famous dancing partners, Betty Adams and Garland Johnson,
putting on a bit of free entertainment. "Ah-h-h!" murmurs a voice in our
ears, "their dancing is like a poem!" Well, it's the renowned poet, David
Clark, especially famous for his odes to flowers, who is watching the dancers
in this enthralled manner. Doesn't he look too sweet with that wreath of
flowers hanging on his ear!
The sweet lassie in the Salvation Army bonnet is our little goldilocks,
Mildred McMullen, who. after divorcing three millionaires, two movie actors.
and one prince, has decided that wealth and glamour are not for her, and is
setting out to reform the world.
The two distinguished-looking young women wearing the monocles and
carrying the walking sticks are Ruth Granger, the new ambassador to Eng-
land, and Margaret Condon, senator from California. They are discussing
politics, in terms we can't even understand, with George Miura, who is the
owner of a string of Japanese colleges.
Good grief! What's Earl Smith doing standing on the dining room
table on one foot with his arms outstretched? Why, posing for the paint-
besmeared young lady, whom we now recognize as the distinguished painter.
Wilma Whitney, and who has decided that Earl is the perfect model for her
portrait of Cupid.
A roaring louder than the rest of the New Year's noise brings everyone
to the window in time to see our own homeroom teachers, Miss Mabee and
Mrs. Bull, step out of a gyroplane that has landed on the roof garden. They
tell us that they had lost .limmie's address, but the peculiar noises coming
from this penthouse sounded so much like their old Senior homeroom that
they found us easily.
Back inside, we are all attracted by a strange device that Carroll Bender.
Einstein's protege, has rigged up. Carroll asks us if we want to see the people
on Mars. Of course, we all gather around while he pulls a switch and throws
on the screen an image of one of the Martian cities. And of all people! Walk-
ing down one of the main streets, and surrounded by a crowd of curious Mar-
tians, we see Marshall Tappin, Ralph Montague, and William Hedrick, the
Do we hear the word "footba1l"? No wonder! For some of Torrance
High's famous athletes are holding a confab. Harold Watson, Torrance's
famous fullback, has just returned from northern Alaska, where he's been
teaching football to the Eskimos. Carl Paxman is now pitching for the big
league, and writing books in the meantime on "Why Baseball and Not Foot-
ball ls the Great American Sport." Ted Adzovich, who has been traveling
in Slavonia giving lecture courses on football, has returned to coach at T. H. S.,
now that Coach Donahue has been made head cocah of Loyola. Bert Hoffman,
who has been coaching in Japan, gives "sitting-up" exercises over the radio on
the side. Now that television has come in, he has thousands of ardent women
Cletue McLean has deserted athletics to go into the movies, where he is
fast becoming the heart throb of millions of girls. He slays' em with those blue
eyes of his.
Here, girls, are the owners of the shop you'd all like to rifle--Keith Coast
and Hazel Briney, who have established the finest dressmaking houses in Paris,
Keith designs clothes, and Hazel wears them, which combination seems to sell
a lot of clothes. Their costumes are especially suited for Campfire Girls, who,
with the Girl Scouts, are their biggest customers. This two-hundred pounder
wearing the horn-rimmed spectacles is Jayne Traller, who conducts a column
of advice to the lovelorn. She is now consulting with Dick Hatton, holder
of the world's record for the 50-yard dash, about his latest love affair with
Dorothy Melton, that torrid Spanish dancer from Hawaii . . . Dick fears he's
losing his light-of-love to Harry Bond, now a prosperous Fresno milkman.
lLove among the milk bottles! What could be sweeterlj Oh! Here's a late-
comer. Our old friend Emil Woosley, who tells us he is now replacing Mrs.
Boynton in the Torrance High attendance oflice, and has every student in
school scared to death of him. Just now he's Writing a book, "Ten Thousand
Reasons Why Promptness Is Best." The same old Emil!

For us who knew you, dread of Age is past!
You took Life, tiptoe, to the very lastg
It never lost for you, its lovely look,
You kept your interest in its thrilling book.
To you came Death, no conqueror, in the end.
You merely smiled to greet another friend!

Torrance's spelling team, composed of Glory Zahradnik, captain: Vida
Jones, Adeline Morisset, and Laurella Lancaster, met Banning High School in
a meet at KFAC on April 24, 1935. The score was: Torrance, 8 errors: Ban-
ning, l9 errors. Vida Jones, who made no errors, represented Torrance High
School in the finals at Los Angeles Junior College Auditorium, May 24, 1935.
Adeline Morisset, with only one error, also received a medal at the same time
that Vida Jones was awarded one.
Representing Torrance in the Annual World Friendship Oratorical Con-
test, Earl Smith, a Senior, took third place in the district finals with his speech.
"The United States and the World Court," at Banning High on May third.
This is the fourth consecutive year that Torrance has placed in the finals.
For the first time in several years debating took an important part in
school activities this year. As a result of the interest in debating in the
Torensic Forum, a number of inter-club debates were held between the Forum,
the Scholarship Society, and the World Friendship Club.
The outstanding debate took place when Torrance met Washington on
May 9 on the question: 'lResolved, that trial by jury should be discontinued
in the United Statesf Julian Isen and Jayne Traller, taking the affirmative,
defeated Washington, 3-O: and Laura May Hyde and Jay Slover, taking the
negative side, traveled to Washington, where they were defeated, 2-l.
Gaily decorated booths with lusty-voiced barkers crying their wares of
pop corn, peanuts, hot dogs, candy, and cider, gypsy fortune tellers, games of
chance, a hay ride, a floor full of dancers, bright streams of serpentine-all the
requisites of a genuine old-fashioned fair, featured the third annual carnival
held in the High School Gmynasium, May 24. Reigning for the evening were
a queen and her six attendants chosen as the prettiest girls in school.

TO ALL GOOD SPORTS
The school year l934-35 will long be remembered by every Torrance
High student, for our fondest hopes in athletic achievement were realized.
When We attempt to signal out any one individual or thing to attribute our
success to, we are at a loss to do so. We can honestly say that it is a com-
bination of an enthusiastic and co-operative student body and a 'Anever say
die spirit" on the part of our ahtletes. Now that we are on top, it is not time
to rest on our laurels. for when we take a look at the graduating class it can
be easily seen that there is a huge hole that will have to be filled. Although
these athletes will be difiicult to replace, it is not an impossible task, for among
our underclassmen are the future "greats" of tomorrow. lf we all pull to-
gether, using the Class of S35 as our model, we will continue our achieve-
ments and prove that the work of this year's class has not been in vain but
will always act as an inspiration to future Torrance athletic teams.
B. J. DONAHUE, Coach,
By BILL HENRY, Sports Wrz'ter
Athletics play a vital part in educational institutions because they bring
out many splendid qualities, chief among them determination, unselnshness.
and sportsmanship. When students can look back over a year of success in
sports, they take pride in their athletic achievements not because of the down-
fall of their opponents but because of the courage and fortitude that have
been shown by their representatives on the field of play. In dedicating this
department to sports, let it be dedicated not to the material success in the
matter of victories but rather to the high qualities of sportsmanship that the
athletes and followers of the games showed in losing as well as in winning.
To be modest in success and to be philosophical and without excuse in defeatd
these are virtues developed in competitive sports that we need to hold fast to
throughout all our lives.
ALL SET EOR
McGINNlS C. SMITH BOND SIELHY
CAPTAIN ROGER MCGINNIS CAII-Marine League Tacklej
Big and aggressive. a superb competitor, our captain was the unanimous
choice of the All Marine League board. If this mighty Tartar had a weak-
ness, no Marine League rival found it. He faced battling competition in every
game and never came out second. McGinnis seldom gave rival backs a chance
to meet him, but whammed forth into the backfield of the enemy. His loss
to Torrance will be an asset to some college.
"Chuck" Smith, the heaviest guard in the league, was indeed a great
player. He was a stonewall on defense. His nghting spirit will be a welcome
asset to the squad next semester.
"Cocky" Bond was a powerhouse on the Torrance line. He led the
interference on offense, broke up plays on defense, and smashed through the
opposing line to stop many plays before they were under way. Despite his
small stature, his natural ability earned him his place on the line.
JOHN SELBY .
Johnny was transferred this season to a tackle position. His performance
in this berth filled a large gap in the Tartar line. His fearless rushing of the
opposing backs spoiled many of their aerial attacks and earned the respect of
every rival he played against. Another great loss to Torrance!
JAVENS ADZOVITCH WATSON
Hal, who has played his last game for Torrance, received much praise
from rival coaches. His excellent selection of plays, his Herce blocking, and
his cool thinking as a Held general, earned him a position on the mythical
All Marine League team.
JACK JAVENS CAll-Marine League Halfbacky
Jack is, in the opinion of Coach Donahue, one of the best halfbacks in
prep school circles. His amazing skill at catching passes, his persistent driving.
and, above all, his fighting spirit easily won him a position on the All-Marine
League team, His return to the team next fall is one of the bright spots in
"Slay" Adzovich was a plunging fullback and a fast open-field runner
once the opportunity presented itself. Ted in his earlier days smashed straight
ahead blindly, but he has learned how to reverse his Held with devastating
effect on his opponents. Fast, a hard driver, and a real scrapper, Ted Was a
stronghold in the Tartar backfleld. Local fans are going to miss him next
Watson was the triple-threat man of the Torrance Champs. His ability
as a pigskin toter and punter made all opponents respect this aggressive half-
back and fullback from Torrance. His blocking and sturdy defensive play-
ing will be hard to replace next season.
M I ADDI N GRUISISS RIKIIIIIART JOHNSON
JOHN MCFADDEN lAll Marine League Right End?
A wide roving. play Wrecker, McFadden did the work of two men all
season. ln the end-around play and in receiving, Jol'm's valuable work was
sufficient to make him the unanimous choice of the All-Marine League board.
Next season, with a few added pounds, he should be the best end in the league.
Jimmy was one of the most inspired linemen of the Tartar's forward
wall. His accurate centering started the Tartar backfield on the way to great
'heights Very few yards were made through his position. Due to an unfor-
tunate accident in the South Gate game, Jimmy was unable to play in the
Coliseum. His graduation leaves a big vacancy.
Harry is another one of those game, inexperienced players who lacked the
necessary training to make the first string. He played very little ball until
the closing games of the season. After Grubbs was iniured, Harry played the
entire game in a very commendable manner. He has the valuable experience
of two yearss behind him to help him next year, besides the willingness to play
due to his love of the game. and the ability to handle the center position. He
should be a very valuable cog in Coach Donahue's 1935 football team.
GAR JOHNSON fAll Marine League Left Endj
Gar is another consistent end who plays a bang-up game of football. His
accurate passing and ability as a ball packer paved the way for several of Tor-
rance's scores. A sterling All Marine League end, his loss will be keenly felt
next season when Coach Donahue looks for another left end.
JAVENS PAVES WAY
IN EL SEGUNDO
AUSTIN WERTZ AGREE
Frank was handicapped by an injury which he received in the opening
league game against Gardena. His few appearances on the Held were out-
standing exhibitions. With his wealth of determination, pluck, and playing
ability, he should be a very valuable asset to the team next season.
"Bullet" Wertz, the Warburton of T. H. S., was probably the shiftiest
man on the squad. He is very fast and very hard to stop in an open field.
Another Senior lost!
Billy was one of the shiftiest and fastest men among the backs of Tor-
rance. He showed up well against much heavier competition. His speed made
him a very elusive runner to rival tacklers. The squad hates to lose this valu-
"Pax," a tall, undaunted end, is a remarkable pass reeciver. Carl has
played four years of commendable ball for Torrance. His love for the game
gave him the required incentive to play hard and aggressively every minute of
the time he was in it. This end position will be weakened considerably next
season, due to his graduation.
"Speck," although a light man, was as effective a player as some of our
heavier men. His wise selections of plays made him an outstanding quarter-
back whenever he was able to play.
A big, rough, aggressive lineman who played heads-up football and kept
John Selby on his toes for fear of substitution. His offensive and defensive
ability made him a hard opponent for his rivals.
CLASS B FOOTBALL TEAM
Heretofore, the Varsity team is the only part of the football squad which
has received any recognition, but this year we wish to point out that the "B's"
are not absolutely insignificant. Although the future Varsity has not won
all of its games, there is a real thrill in seeing Rebadow receive a pass or Disario
punt a beautiful spiral for many yards. Then, there is that man Pizer with
a nice black beard who has more than once scared many an opponent. Austin
and Basile are an essential part of the team because it is their duty as quar-
terbacks to call the plays. Two other backlield men, who have proved them-
selves to be good material for the Varsity, are Bob Peckham and Curnal Javens,
brother of our Jack. In several games we have seen Sheldon Ettling's ability
as a line-man instead of his usual alertness in the backfield. When Carlin or
Kent run an 'lend around" play, one can be sure of a good gain almost every
time. The line is greatly strengthened by those fine tackles, Oswald, Harris,
Of course, the game could not go on if there were no center, and Richard
Miller is the man who covers that assignment. Those obscure guards, Jensen
and Davis, really mean a lot to the team, because they run interference for
many of the plays. Two other men who must not be forgotten, Max Smith
and Reggie Treloar, are the plucky guards when Jensen or Davis are not in the
game. Let's recognize the second letter in the alphabet with regard to football!
BALL IN END-
AT SOUTH GATE
"Guillotine" Nady, although small, was a human whirlwind of a player.
His terrific blocking and defensive playing made him outstanding. Dur-
ing his three years of football, he was always in the midst of the plays.
Bill Was a rugged type of player who never quit While in a game.
Although he was a vicious tackler, a hard blocker, and a game player, he
was unable to make first string. His lack of experience in previous seasons
probably was the only reason he failed to get in more games than he did.

ln the Fall of 1934, the Torrance "Tartars" completed the most spectacu-
lar season in Torrance history. Their entire schedule left them undefeated:
they won both the Marine and Pacinc League Championships: they repre-

TORRANCE VS JORDAN-13-12
lighting" Tartars from Torrance, in their first appearance to local
fans, defeated the Jordan team to the tune of 13-12 in one of the most exciting,
hard fought games in Torrance High football history. The score, 13-12,
shows how close the score really was. In the first half, Daniels, flashy back
from Jordan. tallied both scores for Jordan on intercepted passes. Although
Torrance smashed the Jordan line with steam-roller drives, bewildered their
opponents with tricky spinners and dazzling reverses, they were not able to
drive a score over the visitor's goal line. In the second half, Torrance came
back fighting mad. Adzovich and Javens smashed their way down the field
on a 60-yard sustained drive for a touchdown, Adzovich adding the final drive
which tallied the Hrst score. The second score was made on a lateral pass from
Watson to Johnson. Adzovich kicked the coveted goal, which placed Tor-
rance in the lead. Outstanding linemen were McFadden, Grubbs, Chuck
Smith, and Captain McGinnis.
TORRANCE VS GARDENA-13-12
Torrance 1'1igh's Mighty Team of 1934 turned in a 13-12 victory over
the Gardena "Mohicans" in the Hrst league game of the season, which was
played before a capacity crowd. When the Tartars took to the air, their unex-
pected attack upon the fighting "Mohicans" showed the unusual strength of
Coach Donahue's grid machine. Torrance won this very hard fought game
in the last thirty seconds of play. The first half was marked by the excep-
tionally hard playing of both teams. Due to the evenly matched lines, the
backs were not able to make flashy gains by drives. The game seemed at a
standstill until Gardena began aerial attacks. In the second half, both teams
set off their fireworks. Gardena used the pass, while Torrance smashed the
line. Torrance took the lead in the third quarter when Adzovich carried the
ball over and kicked the goal. Gardena went pass crazy in the fourth quarter
and scored 12 points by Van Piper and Kinsey. With two minutes to go,
Torrance began to march from midfield to the 20-yard line. With seconds
to go, Watson threw a perfect flat pass to Javens for the final and winning
score. Outstanding linemen were McFadden, Grubbs, Smith, Johnson, and
TORRANCE VS EL SEGUNDO-33-0
Torrance swamped El Segundo on the Oilers' field with an overwhelming
score. Using steam-roller tactics and crushing the Oilers' forward wall, Tor-
rance outclassed their opponents in every department of the game. The play
was only in Tartar territory once during the game. Ted Adzovich was the
"big gun" in the Tartar offense by scoring three touchdowns and converting
two of them. Jack Javens and Carl Paxman, who intercepted a lateral pass.
each scored a touchdown, with Watson adding another point. It was impos-
sible to choose outstanding linemen as everyone played stellar games.
TORRANCE Vs LEUZINGER-20-6
Torrance continued its winning streak by downing Leuzinger in a very
thrilling victory on the loser's field. Torrance backs were slowed down by
the muddy field, yet they turned in flashy gains. Although the game was
marred by a number of fumbles, due to the slippery ball, Torrance was able
to offer a devastating display of spinners, reverses, end arounds by Johnson
and McFadden, and passes. Adzovich, McFadden, and Wertz scored the touch-
downs, while Watson and "Slay" made the conversions. Hayward, all-Marine
League fullback, was the mainstay of the Olympic's grid machines. He scored
the lone touchdown and was in every play. Torrance functioned like a well-
oiled machine. Straight football was the order of the afternoon with few
passes being attempted. Gar Johnson and Johnny McFadden gained con-
sistently on end arounds, while Acree, Javens, and Watson provided several
thrills for the spectators with their spectacular ground gaining. Captain
McGinnis, Smith, and Grubbs played a commendable game, both offensively
TORRANCE Vs NARBONNE-13-O
Torrance annexed a thrilling 'victory over their traditional rival, Nar-
bonne, before a crowd of about 3,000 spectators, the largest football turnout
in Torrance gridiron history. lt was the first time in the history of the
school that Torrance ever came out on top of the "Gauchos" Using an end
around, double reverse, the Tartars marched through the Narbonne forward
wall and gained ground almost at will. Late in the second quarter, McFadden
grabbed Watson's 20-yard pass after Rider of Narbonne had hit the ball.
Javens then paved the way for the first touchdown by smashing the ball to
the 2-yard line, where Watson crashed over for the first six points.
Another pass, this one good for l5 yards, started Torrance on the way to
another score. After Johnson made it first down on the 41-yard line, Adzo-
vich, Javens. and McFadden worked the ball to the 5-yard stripe. Javens, one
of the stars of the day, then plunged the ball over. Adzovich converted.
Statistics show that Torrance won very decisively by gaining 302 yards
to Narbonne's 51 yards. Adzovich and Javens were the outstanding ground
gainers, Adzovich gaining 71 yards while Javens advanced the ball 59 yards.
The line, as a whole, played stellar games featured by the rushing of Roger
McGinnis and John Selby. deadly interference running by Harry Bond, Chuck
Smith, and John Nady, and the bang-up play of Jim Grubbs.
TORRANCE VS SOUTH GATE-6-0
When the Marine League champions. Torrance, and the Pacific League
champions, South Gate, were slated to meet, football fans expected a history-
making football game, and they were not disappointed. The Tartars were
able to romp over the Ramblers but could not punch over scores. McFadden
scored the sole touchdown in the first quarter on an end-around play from
the South Gate 12-yard line. Grubbs suffered the first major accident of the
season when he broke his ankle in the second quarter. This game marked
"Finis" to the most successful season in Torrance history. This is tht first
Torrance team to go undefeated through League competition.
NORTH TROUNCES SOUTH, 39-13
Before a crowd of approximately 55,000 spectators, the South lost to the
stronger Northern aggregation at the P.-T.A. Milk Fund football game in the
Los Angeles Coliseum. South Gate and Gardena did the scoring for the South,
while San Fernando, Beverly Hills, Eagle Rock, and "Poly" were the point-
earners from the North.
The first period was played between Jordan and Belmont. This was
merely a steady wave up and down the field during a scoreless period.
The South Gate-San Fernando period was packed with action from start
to nnish. Deception and speed brought the stands to their feet several times.
Both teams scored but failed to convert. Score, 6-6.
A 35-yard pass and a line buck were the factors of the opening score in
this period by Gardena. Eagle Rock returned With a tally in the closing
moments of the period. The North acquired twelve more points when Beverly
Hills blasted Huntington Park's defense.
The South's greatest disappointment came when Polytechnic chalked up a
l4-0 score against a smaller Torrance team. The Tartars made a gallant
though unsuccessful attempt to check the strong "Poly" advance. A beautiful
pass was snatched from Javen's hands, which would have meant a score for
Torrance, but it resulted in a "Poly" score. Outstanding line ability was
manifested by Roger McGinnis. Harry Bond, John Selby, and Chuck Smith.
while Ted Adzovich and Jack Javens proved themselves to be stars in the

The basketball squads seem to have been under a jinx for the last few
years, and this season was no exception. The I935 Varsity Team was made
up of inexperienced players who were handicapped by lack of height and
weight in comparison with their opponents: but every game was marked by
clean play, and they deserve credit for their line sportsmanship.
TORRANCE VS GARDENA
Playing a sporadic game, the Tartars went down to defeat in the first game
'of the season when they lost to Gardena, 23-8. The Red and Gray showed
speed at times, but they were not used to the outside court and became fatigued.

TORRANCE vs EL SEGUNDO
Going down under the crushing onslaught of the Oilers, the Tartars were
hopelessly defeated 51-l l. El Segundo was slightly too large for Torrance,
but the Tartars fought until the last whistle blew.
TORRANCE VS LEUZINGER
The third defeat of the season came when Leuzinger trounced the Tartars
46-21. During the game Torrance showed plenty of fight, but their playing
was not good enough to conquer the Leuzinger team.
TORRANCE VS NORTH LONG BEACH
In one of the greatest games ever played on the North Long Beach court.
the Tartar pumpkin-rollers were defeated 21-20. The lead changed three
times in the last forty seconds of play. The game was nip-and-tuck all the
way through, but the Torrance guards became nervous and let the ball get
away from them, and the Jordanites scored the fatal basket.
TORRANCE Vs NARBONNE
Rivaling the Tunney-Dempsey affair for excitement, the Torrance Tartars
were defeated by their traditional rivals, the Narbonne Gauchos, to the tune of
2l-l2. The entire game was packed with thrills.
CLASS B BASKETBALL
Though the Lightweights had a snappy team, they did not reach the
hoped-for record. From the beginning, they went down frequently in defeat.
In the first game of the season, Gardena barely nosed out the Lightweights.
ln the El Segundo affair, the Tartar "Bees" were hopelessly outclassed. The
following week Torrance met the Blue and White from Leuzinger. They were
defeated, but it was the hardest played game of the season. North Long Beach
had no lightweight team. and the game was forfeited. The iinal game was
played on the Gaucho court. It was a rather rough game, but Narbonne came
out on the long end of the score. Even though the season was not successful,
there were players whose performance under fire was outstanding throughout
the season. Kenneth Hull took care of the right forward position and was a
consistent point-maker. Louis Madore was the "fighting spirit" of the team
and played left forward. Cecil Powell played center and was always in the
middle of the fire. Forrest MCI-lenry and Bob Turner were the defensive men
and played at the guard positions.

The Tartar baseball squad had the largest turnout in years, and the '35
season looked very promising. Such stars as Charles Williams, Kenneth Has-
lam, and Guy Rowell were missing, but their positions were filled by future
"big leaguers"g mainly, Bob Tresize, Forrest McHenry, and David Williams.
It was through the efforts of Carl Paxman, outstanding pitcher in the Marine
League, that baseball in Torrance High was again revived. Baseball had to pay
for itself, and it was Carl, himself, that put over the ticket sale, which made
baseball possible. The team was made up of players who should be congratu-
lated for their line work and playing ability. Frank Nakaba, Carl Paxman,
Takashi Kiyomura, Johnny McFadden, Garland Johnson, Bob Tresize, Earl
Smith, David Williams, and Melvin Smith were the 1935 nine for Torrance
TORRANCE, 0-LEUZINGER, 2
In the opening game of the season, Torrance lost in a hard luck affair,
after eight exciting innings. The winning runs were made in the eighth
TORRANCE, 9-EL SEGUNDO, 2
Here was a game of real performance. Kiyomura and Earl Smith were the
Babe Ruths of the day by each knocking out a home run, and Gar Johnson
was right behind them with a three-bagger.
TORRANCE, 5-NARBONNE, O
Proving that he is the Hstrike-out king" of the Marine League, Paxman
pitched a no-run, no-hit game against the Gauchos. There was much team-
work, and the team showed real class.
TORRANCE, 4-GARDENA, 4
Here is a game that should go down in history. The first four innings
didn't show anything unusual, but the score at the end of the seventh was tied.
From then on, Paxman, of Torrance, and Reif, of Gardena, waged one of the
most terrific pitchers' battles in the history of the Marine League. Both were
still pitching superb ball when, at the end of the fifteenh inning, the game
was called off on account of darkness. The team work was stellar, but Bob
Tresize and Earl Smith stood out by their consistent lielding and hitting.
TORRANCE, l-NORTH LONG BEACH, 2
In the final game of the season, the Tartars were downed by the weakest
team in the League. It was a regular "off day": the air was cold: there were
no rooters: and the game was at North Long Beach. Johnny McFadden
starred by his hitting power.

With the return of several lettermen, this season's prospects of a champion-
ship team were exceedingly bright. Although the entire team is made up of
excellent material, it also has a few outstanding men like Zamperini, Luck.
Wertz, Javens, and Waugh.
Louie Zamperini, holder of the world's scholastic mile record, has disap-
pointed many of his local admirers insofar as he has not run the mile under
4:27 this season. However, at the beginning of the season, Louie set a pro-
gram wherein he stated that he would run only fast enough to win. Incident-
ally, Louie is still undefeated.
Hubert Luck has proved himself a stellar runner by his brilliant perform-
ances so far this year. In the Narbonne track meet, Hubert turned in the best
time of the year in his favorite event, the 440-yard run. He ran this in 50
seconds flat. In the 100-yard dash, he broke the tape at 9.9 seconds.
In the opening track meet of the season with Leuzinger, Torrance amassed
69 points to LeuZinger's 35. The Tartars took nine first places and set new
school records in the high jump, broad jump, and high hurdles.
In the practice meet with the Trojan Frosh at Bovard Field, Torrance, who
had no hopes of winning, made a good showing by making 31 points against
Troy's 63. Due to the sloppy condition of the track, brought about by the
heavy rains, the Torrance men were slowed up considerably. Torrance took
three Hrst places, the winners being Zamperini, in the 880 yards: Bay, in the
mile: and Javens, in the shotput.
Narbonne defeated Torrance in a surprising fashion. Torrance was the
favorite in this meet but was unable to live up to expectations. This was
accounted for by a lack of second and third places. Torrance annexed eight
Hrst places, but could only place six other men. Score 57-47.
Torrance turned in some brilliant performances in their 55-49 victory
over North Long Beach. Gregory of North Long Beach turned in the best
record of the day by scoring 16 Xi points. Javens had hlis best day of the season
with a heave of 46 feet 8 inches, while Kiyomura and Waugh tied in the high
jump at 5 feet I0 inches. -
The 1936 track team is going to be sadly depleted after the loss of Javens,
Zamperini, Wertz, Luck, Kiyomura, Waugh, McFadden, Isbel, Adzovich, and
others. There are many new men who will endeavor to carry on in these
fellows' places. Piper, Speed, Gilbert, Bay, Schipper, Winkler, and Haruko
should prove to be outstanding point winners.

Due to an unexpected change in the tennis season, our team was caught
"flat-footed" with only about two weeks' practice. Consequently, we lost
the first match of the season to Leuzinger. Undaunted, the members of the
team practiced faithfully and were rewarded by winning their next match
from Narbonne. The following week they won their closest match for this
season from El Segundo. This year's tennis team is comprised, with the
exception of Walter Bunje and Junior Lane, of Hrst-year students. The mem-
bers of the team are: Harry Bell, Walter Bunje, Delaine Crook, Kenneth Hull,
Junior Lane, Arval Smith, Merle Richardson, and Frank Thompson. In
the first match against Leuzinger, the first doubles were played by Lane and
Bunje, but the lineup was changed, before the next match, to Bell and Bunje,
who held down the position with modest success. This is Bell's first year.
The second doubles won two and lost two matches. Richardson and
Crook are both returning next year. Junior Lane, in first singles, is the only
member not returning next year. Kenneth Hull, playing second singles, has lost
but one match at that position. He is expected to fill the place of Lane. Arval
Smith and Frank Thompson played third and fourth singles, respectively. Both
return next year.

The 1935 golf season was very disastrous as compared with other seasons.
The team was unable to defend its two-year championship due to the loss of
their low-score veterans. The 1936 golf team will miss the valuable services of
George Bradford, Jim Grubbs, Roger McGinnis, and Melvin Smith.
G. A. A. PLAYDAYS
As one of the G.A.A. activities, the Torrance girls were hostesses to the
G.A.A. girls of Narbonne, San Pedro, and Banning. After the various sports
had been played between the schools, a diversified program, including a short
skit called "The Raggy Wedding," an accordian solo by Laurella Lancaster,
a tap dance by Bettie Dalton, and a harmony act with Ella Levy, Bettye Stev-
enson, Ruth Barnard, and Jane Johnston was presented. Following the pro-
gram, refreshments were served: then the girls enjoyed dancing in the gym.
Torrance placed second in the playday with M point less than the winners,
San Pedro. The sports indulged in were hockey, tennis, horseshoe, basketball,
speedball, and volleyball. This was one of the most successful of any of the
Torrance was one of the guests of San Pedro at an inter-school playday
given during the last semester. Other guests included girls of Narbonne and
Banning. At this event Torrance lost no games and won all but hockey,
which was a tie, thus winning the playday. Following the sports were a pro-
gram in the auditorium, refreshments in the cafeteria, and dancing in the gym.
San Pedro girls were most gracious hostesses, and all the Torrance G.A.A. en-
joyed themselves immensely.
Although the entire year of girls' sports has been most interesting, basket-
ball is. however, almost unanimously the favorite game.
Teams were chosen from each class for competition for basketball cham-
pionship. The Seniors won, consequently representing Torrance at playday
in that sport thereafter. Every game was exciting and hard fought.
