So iT is wiTh us high school sTudenTs: we do our daily Tasks wiTh The popular songs of The presenT on our Tongues, buT bearing in our hearfs The lingering melodies oT yesTeryear. ThaT "Music is The universal langauge of mankind" - is irreTuTabIe. Onward ChrisTian Soldiers, O Promise Me, Old Black Joe, Casey Jones, or The IaTesT dance version of Loch Lomond all have Their deTiniTe places and associaTions in our hearTs and lives. When The gang geTs TogeTher Tor a parTy, or we go Tor a wallc, or camping, iT does noT Talce long Tor our TavoriTe songs To come To The Toreground wiTh The cup OT individual expression running over: be The gang Trom "GreenIand's Icy IvIounTains or India's Coral STrands."

The I938 s+a1CF of The Torch feels Thai ai' no beifer lime or place could fribufe be paid one of The mosf inspiralional composers of popular songs-George Gershwin. Many of The runes by George Gershwin are The songs we love fo sing as individuals and groups. Numbers such as "I Gof Plenly o' No'rhin'," "Summer+ime," "Rhaphody in Blue," "Nice Work If You Can Gel li," and "They Can"r Take Thai' Away From Me" indicale 'rhe versajrile abilily and genius of fhis, one of our mos+ beloved composers. All Too soon has The Crea+or called 'ro a higher glory-George Gershwin. l-lis music will linger in our hearls and memories as long-as we are able To appreciajre good music. Marching Alon g Together On A Bicycle Built For Two - IHHH i I may noi sing Ihe oId songs, Ihe songs I used Io sing Noi' only 'cause "I'm geHing old, buf 'cause noihing goes buf swing And so Ihe Ihing for me 'ro do, if I'm To do my pari Is iusi' forge+ The good old songs, and swing Jrhem in my heari.

Three loud knocks aT The main door announce ThaT The biggesT aTTair oT The year is abouT To begin. IT is The reunion oT The Torrance High classes, Summer '38 and WinTer '39, All is in readiness. lnviTaTions have been senT a monTh in advance by The presidenT oT The UniTed STaTes, Wilbur Franklin. Head buTler Harry Bell, gaThering all his poise and digniTy, responds immediaTely To The now deaTening pounds on The door. The TirsT guesT proves To be none oTher Than Henry PupkoTT, who is a Tamous collecTor oT buTTer- Tlies in SouTh ATrica. Behind him is his TaiThTul Traveling companion, Johnny Gandsey, loaded To The very brim wiTh umbrellas, buTTerTly neTs, and Toy ballons. ATTer shaking The digniTied buTler's hand Tully Ten minuTes, our early guesT asks, "When do we eaT?" The same old Henry! The nexT group oT guesTs are Earl Lock, Mary Ann McElTresh, John McDonald, and Geneve EvereTT. Earl is a sTunT Tlyer, and John is a reTired Track sTar Trom The lasT Three Olympics. The sound oT squeaking V8 brakes brings The whole WeTTy Goodman Swing Band, direcTed by none oTher Than WeTTy Leech and his swing whisTle. WeTTy is employing such celebriTies as Genevieve "Krupa" Lealrherman aT The drums and Margie "TilTon" Maloy, wiTh her golden voice, aT The mike. Tommy Wilkes, in cords and shirT sleeves, comes Truckin' in righT aTTer WeTTy. Tommy is now shining shoes aT The pool hall in LomiTa.

As soon as The guesTs have all arrived, a servanT, The ex-Mr. Joe Kalina, enTers and announces ThaT dinner is served in The Blue Room.

He TeaTures such worldwide aTTracTions as The SmiTh Twins, Ermanell and Annabell, and Their balloon dance, Much embarrassed, Norman Hudson asks To be excused Trom The Table.

The Telegram expresses The regreT oT MarTha George and Eunice KorTT, who are unable To aTTend This reunion. IT seems The U. S. Navy has Temporarily moved To China. ConsequenTly, boTh MarTha and Eunice are in China. The Tour class sponsors, Misses Mills, Shearer, Chase, and E. Jones, are very proud oT our class, because iT conTains so many Tamous and prominenT people. Bob Tolson is The mayor oT Chicago, Ill., and a very successTul one aT ThaT.
