active singing programs in the community this year: for the Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club, Business and Professional Women's

T THE ORCHESTRA y
One feature ot Torrance High School which has been practically extinct until this year is the Orchestra, which, under the
able direction ot Mr. Sauter, has again been brought to lite. '
More dignity seems to have crept into the aud calls which have been opened and closed with numbers from the Orchestra.
It is the members' and Mr. Sauter's fond hope to have instruments and unitorms for a band which will liven up the spirit
at the 'football games next tall.

THOMAS H. ELSON
. G. WELLS named one oT his books "Men Like Gods."
AncienT peoples described Their gods like men. The gods
oT all peoples, ancienT or modern. are Godlike or manlike
even as The men are who believe in Them, and men who believe
in These gods are big or liTTle men according To The gods
They believe in. There's no myThology abouT ThaT.
The gods oT myThology could bring no peace or harmony
inTo The lives oT The people because They knew no peace or
harmony in Their own lives. The God of The ChrisTian peoples
oT Today is a God of harmony and peace, Therefore, ChrisT-
ian naTions are lovers of peace. They are keepers oT Their
broThers because They wish To keep broTherhood in The world.
There's no myTh abouT ThaT.
-Thomas l-l. Elson
I-IE greaT epic poems oT l-lomer sing To us oT The adven-
Tures oT cerTain myThological characTers of ancienT Greece.

IF WE WERE GODS
' I SHOULD LIKE TO BE A NAIAD
Given by Diana a cool green shrine, deep wifhin fall groves of pine,
There l'd lis+ 'ro sparkling lounlains, gaze my hll of snow-capped mounfains:
Here l'd galher myriads of flowers, 'rhaf grow where walerfalls send lheir showers.
Never would I lonely be. for l'd commune wifh fhe Dryads who guard fhe free.
On mild spring days when buds were sprouling, fanned by cool breezes l'd 'fake an ouling:
Then l'cl sir and dream all day: such pleasures drive all care away.
On calm summer nighls 'lwould be enlrancing, when moon-beams fhrough free 'rops come dancing
To floaf among sisfer-clouds and sfars. and swim across Diana's silver bars.

around good player. He had Trouble in finding his shooTing

Bill is a senior who will also be hard To replace.

Lonnie was The ouTsTanding man on The Team. He was a
hard TighTing player Through The whole game. We Think

Jusi Around The Corner from The Torrance TheaTsr
By PATTY DOAN
' FirsT and mOsT annoying To me, is The person who kicks The seaT. This is usually
'N done by an Over enThusi'asTic youngsTer who, in his exciTemenT To warn The hero of
"wp his danger, gets all else and vigorously Thumps and pounds The seaT. However,
'wmv The seaT-lciclce s nOT necessarily have To be a small child. Many Times iT is an
TAX older One. TOO enjoy The icTure and Too young TO siT sTill. In his boredom
A T H- he conTinually TS iT, aT. The lZTTer Type is The mOsT annoying for iT is permanenT
-Nawhile The TirsT is only Te rary.
K The second Type is Tlmepersen who has seen The picTure before and Tells a Triend
- S abOFT 'T. As you probably lcnavh This--Type is usually a woman. Many a movie has

and jusT as you become seTTled Tor an enjoyable evening you discover, To your horror.
ThaT in your search Tor a seaT you have chosen as a neighbor a peanuT-eaTer. OT
course, you resolve noT To leT him boTher you. BuT wiTh all your concenTraTion on The
picTure you cannoT help hearing ThaT conTinual cracking oT shells and munching
of peanuTs. The peanuT-eaTer can usuall make a small bag oT peanuTs lasT Through
The TirsT picTure, and as This picTure ends you rejoice To hear The bag drop To The
floor. There is silence, blissTul silence. This conTinues Through The Keno, The carToon,
The newsreel, and The preview oT coming aTTracTions. buT as The second picTure sTarTs
you noTice The peanuT-eaTer's hand go into his pockeT and pull ouT a package of
gum. WiThouT ceremony The wrapper is pulled oTT and Two sTicks are simulTaneously
placed in his mouTh. There are a Tew seconds of silence while The gum is limbered
up. buT as iT becomes elasTic iT is snapped and popped in unbroken rhyThm.
There is a difference of opinion in The TourTh Type. Some people Think ladies' haTs
are The mosT annoying, buT l Teel The person who conTinually bobs up and down and
back and TorTh is more annoying Than a TeaTher.
I dare say almosT everyone has encounTered one or more oT These specimens in
a show buT I guess iT Takes all Types of people To make a world.
