From a small-town school it has evolved into a competent student-controlled organization New courses ol study have been inaugurated and a Vocational Guidance system has been established. Expansion has made necessary the erection of several new buildings, of which the Assembly Hall stands as an example of modern beauty and utility. In addition, Torrance has gained supremacy in the athletic field. The school is now taking its rightful place in community life. A cooperative understanding has been established between the school and the churches, the service clubs, the merchants, and the parents. These improvements have been brought about by a man who came to Torrance High School as prin- cipal, tour short years ago. The debt we owe him can never be repaid. To our friend, Thomas Elson, in gratitude tor his foresight, his keen understand- ing, and his ceaseless efforts, we dedicate the 1939 Torch. , ,, , .,, ish, ,. ..i-i.... 747. -is-V-7 Y- --V - I F -1 l0ItiWOIlIl Tremendous advances made by photography throughout the past half century stand as an inspiring symbol of our twentieth century World. Modern photography lives as a record oi the course of our civilization in the cultivation ot art, industry, and science. As the present craze for candid camera depicts the American people in their pursuit of everyday living, so We in turn hope to grasp and preserve a representative portion of our high school activities and careers Within these iew pages. Thus, We are able to visualize past and present, and through their comparison, in some measure, realize the unlimited horizons of tomorrow. xx . flue I 1 EIUUHH I Nu - AN Al sum p IIIRCH STAFF Coral Lindernan Virginia Trailer Edgar McDonald Business Manager .

It is composed of several boys and a girl. It takes care of the fire drills held from time to time. Medical equipment is checked frequently so that in case of accident equipment will be adequate. This group acts upon problems that may endanger the students of Torrance High and brings about better safety for the students. Adviser-Mr. Elson. HALL AND BOUNDS PATROL The functions of this organization are of a varied nature. One is to aid students to pass efficiently and quietly between periods. This is accomplished by students stationed at localities likely to become congested. Hall officers also help direct traffic along the best waysp last but not least, certain students that show symptoms of forgetting the fundamental principles of good manners and safety are reprimanded. Another function, somewhat indirect but most important, relates to the training officers of the Hall and Bounds Patrol gain from this activity. A short study of their approved reforms will help the reader form conclusions as to the development in character afforded members of this organization. STAGE CREW Manager-Bert Lamb. Crew-Harris, Grothman, Bill Buckley, lack Sheehan, Charles Bray, Eugene Hatter. Adviser-Mr. Burchett. The Stage Crew is a group of hard-working fellcws at the beck and call of any of our school organiza- tions. These tellows help make possible the dramatic performances which the whole student body enjoys. The new auditorium has helped the stage crew inasmuch as nearly all of their equipment can be stored safelyback stage. With all of the conveniences of the new stage, this crew can render more efficient service to the school. This organization deserves a big hand tor their splendid work! Its activity schedule includes every aud call, and its big job will be the school play, "You Can't Take It With You."

At the present time, the school to which the Marine League sportsmanship trophy will be awarded is unknown. It it should come to Torrance High, part of the credit would go to the Varsity Club. The activity schedule of the club this year consisted of the reorganization of the club, the drawing up of the first constitution it has ever had, the noon dances which were very successful, and last but not least, the unique initiation ceremony.

Tommy Higgins, a veteran of the past two seasons, was first singles and performed very well at that spot. Iohn Lymo, a new enrollee in school, was second singles and gave Tommy plenty of trouble keeping his first singles' spot. The other members of the team were: Wal- lace Stienhilber, third singles, Bob Steadman, fourth singlesg Bob Issacs, fifth singles, Iunior Richardson and Dick Beecher, first doublesg and Leland Bender and Ben Prime, second doubles. Torrance vs. El Segundo Torrance walloped El Segundo 6-l in the first match of the season. The only match lost was the first singles. Torrance vs. Narbonne Narbonne, out for revenge for last year's 3-4 upset, ran wild over Torrance, winning every match. The score was 7-0 in favor of Narbonne. Torrance vs. Banning Banning took the measure of Torrance and won the next match 5-2.

BOILED IN OIL Due to lack of material, the spikesters ot Torrance were working under a great handicap, However, ii the Tartars had more men like Stewart and Hall, they would have overwhelmed the Oilers and every other school they competed with. One outstanding feature oi the meet was the record broken by Stew- art with a broadjump ol 22', a new school record. Another outstanding ieature was the running ol the mile by John Hall in 4 min. 39 sec., in his first competition of the season. In the Bee class, the team came through on top. The Cee's also out- classed the El Segundo men. Torrance vs. Narbonne RIVALS CLASH AGAIN The Varsity was outclassed again but put up a great struggle. By far the most outstanding event of the meet was the jumping ot Stewart to a new all time high ot 6'51l4", 2" from the world's record ol interschol- astic competition. The Bee's and Cee's again triumphed over their opponents. In- the Cee's, Gerald McDonald again shattered the record in the 660-yard broken iust a short time before at Redondo. Eugene Hatter hung up a record tor himself by stopping the clock at I min. 28 sec. in the B-660. T421 SAN PEDRO MEET Torrance vs. San Pedro PIRATES DEFEAT TARTARS This meet was the most important meet for the Tartar B and C teams. It was to determine the l B t am lost the meet by a small margin, and the class championship of the dual meets. The c ass e C title was to be determined in the finals. The most exciting race ot the clay was the 1320 yd. run. Lee Stecker and a Pedro man fought it out all along the back stretch. Lee was the first to the tape, and his time was 3:26.7. In the Class "C", Gerald McDonald broke the record again in the 660. His time was l:3O.4, bettering his own record by 1:08. The outstanding men in the Varsity squad were Iohrt Hall and Bill Stewart. Iohn ran the mile in the fast time of 4 min. 37 sec. Bill leaped 6'4lf4" in the high jump and jumped 22' in the broad jump. Torrance vs. Banning TARTARS vs. PILOTS KMen Against the Seal Same old story, the Tartars lost again in the Varsity competition. However, Iohn Hall turned in a remarkable per- formance of 1 min. 59.8 sec., rarely equaled in high school competition in the 880-yard run. The Bee's and Cee's again chalked up another victory-Winning by 1112 points in the Bee's, and taking the Cee's by 2 points. T' HATA Ivff, V , :,,.V,. ?fIacDONALD R. MILLER PIN A 'Q STEW I 43 I ART BRIGANTI llllllllt The Varsity team was faced with the fact that there were not enough men to win any meets, but Coach Zamperini turned out several individual stars. Bill Stewart, who is noted for his high jumping ability, leaped B'5V4" during the meet against Narbonne. Bill surprised everybody when he broke the school record in the broad jump. It was the first time he had ever attempted to broad jump when he leaped 22 tt. Stewart also picked up a few points in the 100 and 220 yd. dashes. john Hall, last year's star sprinter, ran the distance events this year. Coach entered Hall in a U.S.C. Frosh meet, and Iohn placed second to Weed of Southern California. lohn's time for the two laps was l:59.4, which is just four-tenths of a second slower than Louie Zamperini's high school record. The first time Iohnny ran the mile, he ran it in 4:39, which is faster than any other runner has traveled the four laps in the Los Angeles City School District. Hall also entered the 220 yd. dash and picked up a few more points for the team, Other men who picked up points during the season were Marvin Goettch in the 100 and 440 yd. clashes, Army Dowell in the 440 and high hurdlesg Lee Roy Richardson in the shot put, and Ormsby Miller in the 880 and mile events. Dean Barkdull scored points in the broad jump and pole vault. lean Bordeaux ran the 880 and mileg and Paul Smith, Van Ness Barnard, and Bill Boss ran the 440 yd. dash. The Tartars starred individ- ually throughout the season, but didn't have enough men entered in each event to Win any of the meets. The boys who will be lost by graduation are as follows: Bill Stewart, Iohn Hall, Marvin Goettch, Dean Barkdull, lean Bordeauz, and Bill Ross. These fellows will be greatly missed and will be hard to replace. BEE RELAY NARBONNE FINALS MoNsoN "TIGER" 'SPEED" LOAFING i441 "B" TRACK Led by Lee Stecker, Eugene I-latter, and Cliff Trezise, the mighty Tartar "B's" went through the season with but one deleat. Lee Stecker, a senior took the top honors in the l320, and picked up points in the 220. His tough- est competition was during the Narbonne-Tor- rance meet, and his time was 3:25. Bob Jackson and lim Dowell also ran in this event, and they should take honors next year. Eugene Hatter, another senior, ran l:Z8.9 in the 660. This time he broke the record by 1.1 sec' onds. Hatter also broke the record in the 70 yd. high hurdles by flying over the sticks in the last time of 9L3 seconds. Ioe Van Kralingen, Ralph Pina, and Richard Pearson rated well in the 660, with Van having a slight edge in points scored. Richard Miller, Rowland Iustice and Lee Steck- er made a good showing in the furlong, and the 100 yd. dash was taken care of by Teruzo Hata, Richard Miller, and Louie Briganti. Besides Hatter in the 70 yd. high hurdles the Tartar lightweights had Cliff Trezise, who took turns with Hatter cropping top honors. Teruzo I-lata, Trezise, and Rowland Iustice ran the lZ0 low hurdles and scored many points. The broad jump was taken care of by Richard Miller, Louie Briganti and Fred Russel. Trezise, Beryle Coast and Russel captured many honors in. the high jump. Rolly Andrews starred in the shot put with Coast and Iacobs picking up a few points. Guy DeWitt was always near the top in the pole vault throughout the season. The runners on the relay team were Richard Miller, Briganti, Trezise and Hata, who made the winning points in several of the meets. In the "B" class, graduation will take away our star runners, Eugene Hatter, Lee Stecker, and Teruzo Hata. The teams will miss their points, but graduation has to capture the good athletes some day. 1 7-1 .f r 1 '1 LEWELLEN, PICKING, TREZISE I 45 l HITCHCOCK RICHARDSON YASUNAGA HALL GRUBBS DE WITTE TRACK A. Dowell Beadle Ritchie Aff ,f O. Miller Ross Woods Iustice Parton "C" TRACK The 1939 Tartar ileaweights started out the season in top form. Ted Yasanaga and Wallace Woods came through with top honors in the 120 low hurdles. Woods won some points in the shot put during the season. Gerald McDonald and Don Hitchcock shone in the 660 event. Gerald broke the school record tive times during the season. His best time was made on the new Narbonne Cinder path in the last time ol l:3l,2. Hitchcock was always close behind McDonald in every meet Gnd these boys Should go 10 town during the 1Q4U season, McDonald qlgg picked up q tew points in the 100 yd. dash. Bill Parton led the field in the century and the broad jump. Iiru Daniels and Red Ritchie represented the team in the pole vault, and Bob Golden took top honors in the high Jump throughout the season. The four man 440 relay team was the best in the League. The boys broke the record three times during the early part of the season. The team consisting oi Bob Golden, Wallace Woods, Ted Yasanaga and Bill Parton, traveled the lap in 46 seconds. The credit for turning out such a speedy group Of runners should go to Coach Zamperini. This was his first year as coach at Torrance, and he really turned out a brilliant, dependable, championship team. BASKETBALL Tartars Lose First League Game On Thursday, December 1, the Torrance Tartars tangled with the Banning Pilots tor the lirst game ol the season. The first hall was rather close, but Tweedy, ot Banning, sank tour baskets to clinch the game. Bill Nagel was the out- standing player lor Torrance. He carried away high point honors with ll points to his credit. Gauchos Trounced For the first time in two years the Torrance Varsity won a league game. Their victims were our old rivals irom Nar- bonne. The Tartars took the lead in the first halt and were never headed. Bill Buckley, acting captain, played his best garne. He was outstanding on defense and also sank three long shots, High point honors went to Marvin Lee with 15 points to his credit, Torrance Upsets San Pedro The Tartar Cdgers nosed out the San Pedro Pirates on the Tartars' floor. The Tartar quintet outplayed the Pirates throughout the game. They jumped into a ten-point lead in the first quarter, and managed to keep ahead. When the gun sounded the end of the game, the Tartars were in the lead by a score oi 34 to 32. Tartars Bow to Oilers On December 20, the Tartars traveled to El Segundo. It seems as though their eiiort to win was in vain. 'I'he Oilers played heads up ball, and won by a margin ot eight points. Marvin Lee played an outstanding game. Tartars Scalp Mohicans Torrance barely eked out a thrilling victory over Gardena. The battle was staged on the losers' tloor, Ianuary 10. Marvin Lee led the attack oi the Tartars by swishing through with a total ot 12 points. Banning Marches On Banning again proved to be too good for the Tartar quintet. Torrance held the score down to 27 to 24. Tweedie and Frey got hot in the second half and ran the score way up so that the issue was never in serious doubt. Marvin Lee was high point man with 15 points. ,H I Van Kralingen i461 E471 LETTERMEN INITIATED Narbonne's Second Downfall This game would not do justjce to a so- called basketball team. No one on the Tartar squad really played his best. Even though the Tartars won, it was by a very small margin. Marvin Lee managed to bail in 15 points to retain his place as high point man. Pirates Conquer Tartars ln a game that had no thrilling moments because San Pedro was always ahead, the Pirates conquered the Tartars by a score ot 35 to 18. San Pedro used a last breaking oltense and completely outplayed the 'i'artars. Vinko Matulich, ol San Pedro, scored as many points as the entire Torrance squad. Marvin Lee and Bill Buckley played their usual out- standing game. Tartars Again Bow to Oilers El Segundo held the lead by a lew 'points all throuah the aame. The 'l'artars put up a great light, but they lacked in a strong de- fense. Bill Buckley, candidate tor All Marine League honors, played outstanding ball until out on personal fouls. Marvin Lee walked away with the high point honors once more. Tartars Again Scalp Mohicans The Torrance Tartars gave the Mohicans the beating ol their lives by a score ot SU to 28. The Tartars played very line heads up ball. Marvin 'Lee and Bill Nagel were the Stars ol the game. Marvin found his shooting- eye early in the game and contributed 24 points to the Tartars' cause. 'l'he game was hard fought. and rather rouah, but with the able and lair re'ereeing of the great former coach, B. I. Donahue, the game was kept quite clean.

PRIEST ROSS BEE BASKETBALL The Tartar Bee squad was ham' pered by lack oi experienced ma- terial. They won only one league game and one practice game by small margins, but we hope to see our next year's Bee squad equal the standards of the former 1987 Bee squad. Members ol this year's team are I. Daniels, Clillord Pow- ell, Billy Ross, Ormsby Miller, W. L, Priest, Clyde johnson, H. Pina, lean Bordeaux and Harvey Abra- hamson. i491 VARSITY BASKETBALL The Varsity squad made the finest showing oi any of the Torrance High basketball teams of the past live years. Much of the credit goes to their able coach, Mr. Peter Zamperini. The team was composed of nearly all of last year's Bee squad. Most of the players have one more year to go, and We, the students of Torrance High, wish them the best of luck next season. Even though the students did not give the players their full support all the first of the season, they well made up for it in the latter part.

A RPHIINIIIIIES ,, The Saphornores' first year in high school is not usually an eventlul year, but these Sophornores have not been lacking in activity. They have some outstanding members in their class also. During the Torrance High School G.A.A. Playday April 27, 1939, it seems that the Sophomore baseball team really took quite a beating from the Gardena Sophomore team. The score was 20 to 2. Do you think they can ever live it down? The players were as follows: Captain Mina l-lorrnell, Helen Militich, Virginia Zamperini, Relda Briggs, Betty Iune Pierson, Nobuko Kobayashi, Doris Martin, Elizabeth Fish, Eleanor Lukes, Emestine Mauk and Wesla Toler. On Saturday, May 6, 1939, the Scholarship Convention was held at Long Beach Polytechnic High School. Among the Sophornores' delegates were: Virginia Zamperini, Patty Doan, Wesla Toler, Ruby Benner, and Marjorie Rusk. The Sophomore baseball team, on May 18, l939, went to the San Pedro High Playday ready for a victoryg they met the Gardena Sophomores on court 3 and battled it out again. This time the score was only 7 to 2 ftheir lavorl. The players were the same except for two substitutes, Ruby Benner and Marjorie Rusk. On the boys' list oi outstanding mem- bers is the all around sport, Iames Daniels. Last year he went out for "B" basketball, in baseball season he played second base for Varsity, and in track season he performed as a "C" pole vaulter. He has been outstanding in all these sports. We hope to see more of you next year, Iimmy. Thomas Zumwalt has taken active part in the Future Farmers of America.

INITIATION SAN PEDRO-BOUND GUESTS AT SAN PEDRO PLAYDAY May 18, 1939 Torrance was one of the guests of San Pedro at an inter-school playclay. Players participated in baseball, volleyball, basketball, and archery. Games were followed by a delightful program, refreshments, and then dancing in the gym. All the Torrance G,A.A.sters enjoyed themselves immensely. TORRANCE PLAYDAY April 27, 1939 One of the G.A.A.'s biggest activities of the year was the playday at which Torrance played hostess to Narbonne, Gardena, Susan Dorsey, and Banning, April 27. The programs, decorations, and games were carried out in a nautical manner, and the girls had "gobs" of fun. The afternoon was spent playing baseball, basketball, volleyball, tennis, horseshoes, and badminton on the various playdecks of the S.S. Torrance. After the games had been successfully maneuvered, the girls were entertained with a bit of nautical nonsense. Fol- lowing the program, mess was served in the galley. Before sailing for home ports, the girls enjoyed a farewell dance in the gym. Pllll IIAY l3IItlS' SPUHIS In this last year. the G.A.A. has made C1 Spe-Cidl effort to arouse interest and enthusiasm in the individual sports such as tennis, badminton, horseshoe-s, pingporlg, and archery. By emphasizing these sports, the girls are taught games that can be played outside of school with just two or three girls instead of a team ot ten or twelve. In the last month of school, tournaments were held in these various individual sports, and the girls have shown alot of interest and really had a great deal of pleasure. TENNIS The G.A.A. tennis team has been very successful this season. They returned from every play the triumphant winners. TENNIS TEAM Arlys Possum, Marjorie Page, Mina Hormell. BADMINTON Having been well supplied with badminton equipment and also enthusiasm, the GAA. had a really enjoy- able season. BADMINTON TEAM Ieanette Evans, Vivian Wertella, Barbara Neff. SPEEDBALI..
