ONE Oli OUR IIINER 'I'E,xcL1iuRs who, for many
years, has been a friend to students and faculty
alike. inspires us with his loyalty and faith to the
school. As printing teacher, he is kept busy
publishing the school paper. but is always cooper-
ative and available in undertaking additional
work .... We, the Staff, gratefully dedicate
the l947 TORCH to MR. CHARLES HaMi1.ToN.
C Q C
ODAVS YOUTH. living in the atomic age. has a greater kno W
edge of the needs and problems of the World than did the teen-
agenv of its parents' generation. . . Thus it is that the modern
Tartans have combined with the ancient Tartars' courage and
loyalty a great realization of the problems that face a postwar
World The immediate necessity of great leaders to make, the
World secure at last leads us to have the modern Tartar himself
as the theme for this 1947 TORCH .... This being the last
annual under the present administration, We, the 1947 Staff
wish to thank the faculty and administrative omcers who have
given us a great deal of their time and energy for many years.
We want them to know that we recognize their loyalty and
deeply appreciate it. UQ' Wish them each success wherever they
may go and hope they will carry with them many happy
es of Torrance High School.

FOR zxpeizoxigfifgjlsfw 4 ' Rs, Mr. Po was 3
head custodian at Torrance igh School. ore than
that. he was a friend and able guide to many students.
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

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

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

who was halted on the hve. A few plays later, George cracked over. George scored again on a I5 yard sprint in the
block that kick
' 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

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.

ing. At this point, the hard ftghtnig Pirates scored two quick touchdowns, the last coming in the final

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

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.

seventy-Hfth and Johnston ninetieth place.
KIWANIS CUP! Before the war, Pete Zamperini had th: team. each year, run a mile and a half. The man that took
hrst place would have his name engraved on the cup. Oscar Escohedo was the favored man. He led the first nve
laps. but due to a cold, was unable to keep his wind. Duncan sprinted past Spangler and then past Escobedo.
Duncan won hy ten yards. Bill Morgan took fourth place: this was the first time he had ever run the course.
The wining time was 8:l8.4.

one game all season. The best game of the year was played against Banning, at Banning. Joe Ban, Tartar guard, held
Banning's All-City forward to the total sum of eight poi nts. The team won their only game against Gardena, the
score 24-22, This was one of the most thrilling games at Torrance in some time. The first string consisted of: Joe
Ban. Bob Suttle, guards: Gene XVilliams. Jack Turner, forwards: and Herb Curly center. The able subs. were:
Tom Baron, Paul Smith, Stewart Cooke. John Moburg, and Wendelin Seiberlich.

THE VARSITY CLUB started out this last year in full swing.
Coach Winheld is the sponsor. 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.
