DEDICA TI ON
Feeling it a rare privilege to have spent any length of time under the
watchful tutelage and inspirational leadership of Mr. Elson during which
period he was ever mindful of the welfare of each member of his large
flock, and wishing to express our deep sense of loss in having him taken
from us when we most needed him, the Students and Faculty of Torrance
High School, dedicate the 1943 Torch to our sympathetic friend, our wise
counsellor, and our beloved former principal, Mr. Thomas H. Elson.
F ORE WORD
In a spirit of cooperation with the War-Ef fort in order to conserve mon
ey, labor, and materials in these troublous times, the TORCH STAFF pre-
sents the war time Annual Though It is less pretentious than revi d'-
. . . p ous e 1
tions, we feel sure that you will cherish it as your memory book of some of
the outstanding events and people of an eventful year.

In the Service of Our Country
Torrance High School deeply arppeciates the risks and sacrifices that
several hundred of its alumni and former students have undergone or are
undergoing in the hope of maintaining a democracy and a civilization for us
all to enjoy again in a normal life when the rigors and horrors of this war
A service plaque was presented to the school by the Summer Class of
1943 and has been maintained since then by the voluntary contributions of
students now in school. On this are engraved the names of graduates in the
service in so far as information has been received about them.
The following branches of service contain these totals up to the present
Army Air Corps 39
Navy Air corps 8
Coast Guard 20
Distinguished Flying Service Cross and Air Medal for Meritm-iouis
Achievement in Aerial Flight, Captain William E. Keefer.
Silver Star, Lieutenant Louis S. Zamperini.
Cited for Bravery by the United States Navy, Addison Smith, Q M. 2c,
and Robert Emerson, Ph. M. 2c.
The Torrance News Torch has been sent to all former students of Tor-
rance High whose address was known- Voluntary contributions of students
and townspeople provided for this.
Within the realm of memory, there is prepared for everyone a "trans-
cription" of his past school life, a record which brings back to him whenever
he desires it a review of former school experiences. The thrills, the sorrows
the ambitions, the joys, the disappointments, the achievements are all there
in memory, ready to respond to any summons you wish to make.
It is my sincere hope that your educational investment at Torrance
High School is sufficiently strong to insure for you a confident welcome
wherever you go, whether it be into a challenging career of tomorrow or into
a relaxing memory of yesterday. , HAROLD E. PERRY
"Mankind is always happier for having been happy. If you .make them
happy now, you make them happy twenty years hence by the memory of it."
There must be, I am sure, a deep sense of gratitude in the heart of every Amer-
can boy and girl to know that they have been able to record in their annuals
the activities of a normal boyhood and girlhood. to realize that. as they open
them again in the distant future, it will awaken memories of a happy youth.

A surprising but well-earned victory over San Pedro in the final week
of the season enabled the Tartar grid squad to salvage a little glory from an
otherwise disastrous season. Recipients of seven straight losses prior to their
final encounter, the Tartars seemingly emerged from their lethargy to edge
out the Pirates by one point, therefore literally handing the Marine League
crown on a silver platter to their traditional rivals from Narbonne.
True to his pre-season promise, Coach Hoffar in his first year provided
T.H.S. with a fighting team which, though often down, was never out.
Three seniors, Sonny Post, Charles Rippy, and Dave Wilkes, were
awarded spots on the All-League teams for their outstanding play.
The first football season after Pearl Harbor found several wartime re-
strictions in effect: namely, elimination of practice games and a ban of stu-
dent travel to games.
In spite of these two items and the fact that it was a mediocre season,
there was no lag in the school spirit which has earned tops in sportsmanship
in the league for two years running.
Handicapped by lack of experience and several injuries, the Varsity
Basketball team nevertheless fought well through an unsuccessful season.
Leading Gardena in the first half, they were in defeated in their first game
after Woodburn spi-fined his ankle. With two of the first stringers complete-
ly inexperienced, the team made a better showing than any other school
against the undefeated Banning Pilots, but couldn't seem to get started,
until late in the first half, during the other games.
The usual starting lineup was: Ed Egerer, Bill Johns: forwards, Wallace
Kvilvang: center. Ralph Wolfe: and Jim Woodburn: Guards. Egerer was
chosen on the All-Marine League team being the second high scorer in the
city. Other members of the team were Melvin Miller, David Callahan, Lee
Campbell, Ed Smith, J. A. Barrington, Paul Pierson, and Wayne Lovelady.
The Bee Team also failed to win any games in league competition, be-
cause of inexnerience, but showed a great deal of improvement at the end
of the season. Lettermen were Ernest Floyd, Tom Nuckles, Ted Long, Bill
Stanley, Art Schaller, Philip Lisman, Lawrence Pankey, and Ralph Pegors.
Composed mostly of last yearls stellar B Team, the Torrance High Var-
sity Track Team this year proved to be among the best in the League.
However, a few tough breaks prevented them from taking the championship,
since they lost to the champions from Banning by only seven points.
The outstanding feat of the season was Walter Smith's 9.9 hundred which
tied the Marine League record. However, the loss of Chet Dowell, one of the
best pole vaulters in the city, was a major blow.
Lettermen were Charles Rippy, Bob Leech, Jim Woodburn, Marvin Kent
Jim Post, Edwin Smith, Lloyd Warthan, Walter Smith, Dan Ordway, Bill
George, Harvel Guttenfelder. Gordon Smith, and Edward Robst.
The Bee team. although they tried hard, failed to win any meets. How-
ever, they managed to put up some good fights against superior competition.
High scorer on the team was Ted Long, while other boys who gained
points were Robert Warning, Dallas Martin, Joe Escobar, Homer Bullard
and Paul Mitchell.
With but six players returning from last year, four of whom were letter-
men, the 1943 Tartar baseball team did very well with the material available.
Although ending up rather low in the standings, they should do very well
next year, since only five boys will be lost through graduation.
After making a good showing in the practice games, they lost several
close ones in the league competition. Paul Svensk proved himself to be-'a
good pitcher, but a batting weakness handicapped the team. The lineup
which usually took the field was: Paul Hoke, Catcher: Paul Svensk, Pitcher:
Bill Bynum. First Base: Ed Egerer, Second Base and Pitcherg Gerald Jack-
son, Shortstopg John Agapito, Third Base: Radford Raynor, Left Field: Pete
Dodos, Center Field: Bill Stanley and Gordon Smith, Right Field.
Bill Johnson, Bill Mcleod, Jim Woodburn, Jim Standifer, Bob Stirling,
'Leroy Schwenk, J. A. Barrington, and Lee Campbell were substitutes.
After a lapse of three years, a large turn out of B's greeted Coach
Dick Leech. Abie Coast and Fred Russell also trained the team with Coach
Winfield rounding out the season.
Though their win and lost record was identical with that of their big
brothers of the varsity, their games were, as a rule, much closer and
usually were decided by one touchdown.
Captain Gordy Smith sparked the team from the quarterback position,
with help from Frank Dominguez, Robert Warning, and Gerald Mosher on
the line. Other lettermen were Marvin Kent, Joe Corea, Gerald Godard, Bill
Shaner, Bill Rogers, Bob O'Toole, Sam Intermill, Paul Husbands, Ed Robst,
Tom Russel, Bill Collins, John Agapito, Stuart Smith, and Radford Raynor.
Most of these boys will see action on the Varsity team next year and their
experience should prove to be valuable.

Prime, Jim Prowten, Henry Gores, Charles Rippy, Guy Dewitt, George
Winters, Floyd Stevens, Tom Bishop, Fred Wilkes, Dick Hogue, Bob
Stirling, Dave Wilkes, Chet Dowell, Jack Bays, Herman Goettsch, Dick
Cates, and Roy Holloman.
The G- A. A. had a very successful season this past term. The girls
participated first in individual sports, either bowling or badminton, and next
played basketball. The season was closed with a banquet at which a num-
ber of girls were awarded their letters and stars.
The second term began with speedball and ended with participation
in individual sports, either baseball or badminton-
G.A.A. girls officiated at Girls' Day, and the semester ended with the
presentation of letters and stars to the different members.
This semester the G A. A. has a new sponsor, Miss Johnson, because
Mrs. Carmichael, the former G. A. A. sponsor, has been on leave of absence.

The annual Girls' Day at T.H.S. was celebrated May 27, 1943.
The day's activities began with a very impressive ceremony in the aud-
itorium at which time the Girls' League oflicers were installed. Mrs.
Eleanore King was the speaker for the day and she gave a very humorous
talk on posture, her favorite subject-
The Outstanding Girls' Luncheon was held in the Faculty dining room
with the president, Barbara Quimby, presiding.
The afternoon activities sponsored by the G. A- A. began at one o'clock.
The color captains and cheer leaders were:
Blue, Pat Whitney, Phyllis Mcvicar
Green, Rose Marie Disario, Phyllis Hargett
Gold, Retha Mathews, Norma Levy
Red, Doris Faucett, Jean Lancaster
The Blue team made the largest number of points, and their captain's
name and their color will be placed on the Girls' Day Cup. The games were
supervised by Miss Jennings and Miss Johnson: referees were from Compton
Junior College, and women faculty members acted as officials.

The Schools at War Thrift Program was very active this year- It included
Junior Red Cross work, first aid courses, an intensified agricultural set up,
a tremendous scrap drive, and the sale of defense stamps and bonds. The
Jeep campaign in April netted us enough for six army jeeps, while the
total sales, through the school, of stamps and bonds throuh the year amount-
ed to 370.148 Torrance High School is proud to be able to fly a minute-
man flag because of the investments of ninety per cent of the students.
Miss Mabee sponsored the thrift program.
American Junior Red Cross
The work of the Junior Red Cross accomplished in the past has been
by the Junior High school students exclusively. In the other Marine League
schools the American Red Cross is made up of junior and senior high stud-
ents. It is hoped that next semester the senior high students will become
interested in this vital war work.
Miss Chase, sponsor of the Junior Red Cross, is very happy to report
that this semester the students and faculty combined collected for the war
fund a total of two hundred and seventy-three dollars and fifty cents.
Work accomplished in Torrance High School by the Junior Red Cross
is as follows:
Seven Gift Boxes for South America
Five Scrapbooks for Invalid Children
Seven Scrapbooks for Service Men
Thirty six Thanksgiving Tray Favors
Twenty Christmas Tray Favors
Five Kneeling Pads
Those things which the Junior American Red Cross has under way at
the present time are:
y Twelve Pocket Checkerboards
Twelve Jig Saw Puzzles
Twelve Writing Pads
The American Junior Red Cross has accomplished much for the War
