To the teachers. he was always dependable and eager to aid. Even when a Torrance councilman, he found time to help the Torrance High School students with their problems. His sense of humor was keen. lt is with deep regret that we say good-bye to Mr. Powell as he goes to a new position in Dana Junior l-Iigh School.

PRESTON JARRATT GEORGE TAYLOR KOSHAK FARVN SMITH TURNER coMsTocK MORGAN THE 1946 FOOTBALL SEASON was one of the most unusual and thrilling seasons in the history of Torrance High. This team rose from the preseason rating of the weakest team in the League to the undisputed Marine League title. Wliat this team lacked in experience and depth it made up for in intelligence and spirit. The Tartars placed three men On the Hrst string All-Marine team and three men on the second team. Three men were put on the All-City teams. Ralph George, Torrance's most valuable player, was the second high scorer in the city, and was placed on the Iirst team All-City. The season opened with a smashing upset over an experienced Narbonne varsity and closed with a victory over a stubborn San Pedro squad in the last two seconds of the season. TORRANCE 2 O-NARBONNE 7 This being the hrst game of the season, the Tartars were hred to a high pitch and smashed an over-confident Gaucho squad Z0 to 7. Ralph George led the attack. scoring two touchdowns on runs and passing to Captain Leroy Schwenk for a third. TORRANCE 7-BANNING 0 ln this. the second game of the season, the Tartars over-powered a stubborn Banning band by a score of 7-O. The only score of the day came when Ralph George hurled a l-l yard pass to Bob Turner in the end zone. TORRANCE 12-GARDENA 0 This was the only game of the season in which the Tartu". seemed over conhdent. The hrst half was a nip and tuck affair without much action, But on the hrst play alter the half. George heaved a 45 yard sleeper pass to Bud Smith who was halted on the hve. A few plays later, George cracked over. George scored again on a I5 yard sprint in the linal quarter. block that kick Html' AVAIDS DON.-XTONI scinwrixlx STIRI ING STROH OEFINGER BRANUM s ' TORRANCE 6-SAN PEDRO 13 i This was the Tartars' only setback of the season.-The San Pedro squad was much heavier than the Tartarsl. and the muddy field did not bother the power of the Pirates as much as it did the speed and passing of the Tartars. Ralph George scored the Tartars' only touchdown on a crowd- stunning 75 yard gallop. , TORRANCE 13-NARBONNE 13 . ln this game the Tartars met a vastly improved Gaucho squad on a slightly muddy field. George once again broke lose and raced 70 yards for Torrance's Hrst score. He scored again on a four yard plunge in the last quarter. The game ended with the Tartars on the Gaucho's one yard line. r TORRANCE l 4-BANNING 0 This was perhaps the Tartans best game of the season, The Banning squad was so completely outclassed that they were not able to get a Hrst down until late in the final period. Ralph George scored both touchdown, one on an ll yard dash, and the other on a four yard smash. TORRANCE l 6 -GARDENA 0 The Tartars got off to a rolling start in this game, and on the third play, Ralph George passed to Jack Hood who raced to a touchdown. The Tartars scored again when George dashed 15 yards around right end. Leroy Schwenk blocked a Mohican pass in the end zone for a safety in the last quarter. TORRANCE 20-SAN PEDRO 13 This final championship game was played before the largest crowd ever to see a football game on th: Torrance Held. lt was a thrilling game from start to finish, with the Tartars drawing first blood in the second quarter when Bill Morgan pitched to Darrel Comstock in the end zone. The Tartars scored again on the kick-off at the half, when Darrel Comstock romped 80 yards behind almost perfect block- ing. At this point, the hard ftghtnig Pirates scored two quick touchdowns, the last coming in the final four minutes of play. tying the score. But now it was time for the Tartars to open up with their pow- erful attack. With just seconds left to play they moved to the Pirates' 35 yard line. and as the gun went off, Ralph Cieorge pitched to Tom Faren, who made a diving catch and fell into the end zone for the championship winning touchdown, l.eroy Schwenk tendvl-Captain of the team. was two yea rs All-Marine. second string All'City.

TORRANCE'S BEE FOOTBALL TEAM was second only to a strong Gardena band which compared favorably with many varsity teams in speed and passing, Gardena won both games with the locals to win the championship. Coach Katz, chief helmsman of the Tarbabes, made power plays the nucleus of his attacks as Torrance's line was superior to all they came against. Strong guards and tackles made the power plays go. TCRRANCE 6-NARBONNE O In the first game the Tartars managed only to eke out a 6-O win. Frank Faren made the touchdown. TORRANCE l3-BANNING O ln this game the Tartars started rolling from the first kick off. Frank Faren and Bob Snuffer each tallied in the hrst quarter while Don Garrison toed the extra digit. TORRANCE 6-GARDENA 13 Gardena's highly favored Papooses got the surprise of their life when they met Torrance. The score was tied at six all until the last three minutees. Then Torrance made the mistake of throwing a pass which was intercepted, and geqondq later resulted in a touchdown and a 13-6 win for the Mohiqmg, L TORRANCE 12-PIRATES 7 Torrance won again. Mike Goettsch ran 78 yards to the San Pedro five to set up the first touchdown for Bud Licht. ln the second quarter Goettsch ran one foot to score the clincher.

The Papooses scored in every quarter while the Tarbabes just never got started. Torrance's line was pushed all over the Held by the Papooses' surprise defensive formation. ' TORRANCE 14-SAN PEDRO 19 A The Tarbabes were hampered by penalties in this game. ln the final seconds of play Torrance reached the Buc l fool line but a penalty called the play back.

When they first started, Ray Richhart opened the gym at 7:00 o'clock in the morning. He would stay in the gym while the boys worked out on the bars. ropes, horses and mats.

The aim of the Club is to keep pupils outside of Torrance from wearing illegal lettermen sweaters. The Club has helped in many differ- ent activities. They have kept order during football games, by keeping spectators off the Held. At track meets they kept the students off the track. During the noon basketball league, they had guards at the doors to keep the students from bringing food into the gym. Another help- ful duty was to watch the bicycle rack. The students that owned bicycles had to have them locked or go to the gym where Coach XVinfield would persuade them to buy a lock. To be .1 member of this Club, the boy has to have earned .i Varsity letter in any sport in Torrance High School. Row l: Shultz, Comstock. Dean. Norris.
