In Appreciation of his sympathetic interest in every student's problems and his great helpfulness in assisting the more unfortunate-a friendship as sincere and genuine as a real pal for a comrade in trouble, and most of all, for the enrichment he has given our lives through contact with his energetic and pleasing personality and genuine character - an example that will remain with us always as a guide to our future lives. We, the Annual Staff, affectionately dedicate The Torch, and gratefully acknowledge his maior part in making its issue possible, to our beloved Principal, MR. LLOYD W.

GIRLS' COURT The Girls' Court is composed of five members. These include a judge, the presi- dent of G.A.A., Girls' League, Tartar Ladies and a secretary. Any girl in school who has committed a violation of our rules is brought before the Court and trial tor her particular of- fense is made. If the girl is found guilty, she is given a specified punishment to be carried out for a certain period of time. The Court meets whenever it is necessary to try a violator. This isn't very often. .11 'R ZXXY 2 'F'- X I 3, X TY ' ..

Her father was killed in the Civil Warp her husband shot by a revenue officer, and her son, Rufe, killed in the first World War. At the time she learns of her son's death she also discovers she has been harboring in her house the son of the rev- enuer who shot her husband. She is about to shoot him and thus be revenged when the spirit of her dead son whispers to her that the world will never be right until there is more love and less hate in it. She has an immediate and complete change of heart.

Ending in fifth place in the league standings, this year's football squad under the splendid direction of Ed Cole proved to be one of the most outstanding pigskin aggregations ever to play for Torrance High School. Stepping up from Marine League competition into the strong talent-packed Bay Circuit, the Tartars played all but one of their games at night using the "T" formation in which tricky deceptive plays were the nucleus of offensive attacks. The season opened in a tie with a stubborn Covina team and came to a climax with a smashing triumph over highly-rated Fallbrook, champions of the Southern League, in the Turkey Bowl Game. The outstanding line play of valuable Captain Jack Hood and tackle Gene Stirling earned them places on the All-Bay League second team. The hard playing of Gene Stirling brought him the award of being the most valuable player, while Al Stephenson received the Ray Rich- hart Cup for his fine sportsmanship. Probably the most exciting game ever played at Torrance, the story-book ending of the Inglewood tussel in which the Tartars captured the battle with only four seconds remaining, will always be looked upon as the 1947 squads' most titanic triumph.

PRESTON CAPTAIN JACK HOOD Captain Jack Hood will be one of the most missed men on the Campus next year. This past year, not only did he play some good football but proved himself a fine inspirational lead. Coach Eddie Cole proclaimed him the finest foot- ball Captain he has ever had. Jack will continue his education at a Southern California Junior College where he will major in Physical Education. Good luck, Jack, to a fine leader and athlete. MAI' 5 of .fdcluice COACH COLE Dynamic Coach Eddie Cole, after a successful coaching career at Oceanside, J. C. and the Army Air Corps, took over the reigns of the Tartar Varsity Football and the Track Teams. Coach Cole has the true Tartar spirit and his name is synonymous with fighting and well coached teams. All his athletes are proud to have served under his guidance. COACH CLIFF GRAYBEHL Coach Cliff Graybehl joined the Tor- rance High School coaching staff this past year and has done a splendid iob with his coaching duties. Coach Gray- behl coached "B" football, Varsity and "B" basketball and Varsity and "B" base- ball. One will always find Coach Gray- behl in a gay mood and always eager to help any of the boys in school with their problems. EX, . W., Avi?" if 'K if econ in .fd lakagef "B" FOOTBALL This year's "B" Football team was one of the best in the history of Torrance High School. The locale won three league games and lost four and was the only team in the league to upset the league champion, Inglewood. The Graybehl coached men displayed outstanding ability in the tackling and blocking department. Running from a single wing formation, little Boyd Crawford, was the "B's" most valuable player. Captain Don Bodner, the defensive and offensive demon, was an exceptional leader. Ralph Standridge and Dave Dougherty were exceptional pass receivers. Bob Snuffer, Dick Cloward lwho was hurt early in the seasonl, Chuck Ford and Phil Wall toted the ball behind Chuck Vorhis, strong blocking Jim Taylor, and Yovan Popovich. Charles Begue, Jack Stevens and dependable Ray Maddock were outstanding defensive players. Lettermen were: Ends, D. Dougherty, J. Stevens, J. Dean, T. Ruppert, Tackles, Y. Popo- vich, J. Taylor, D. Croshaw, D. Ferguson, Guards, C. Begue, Captain D. Bodner, D. Bingham, G. McQuillan, Centers, R. Maddock, F. Paour, and Backs, P. Wall, C. Vorhis, R. Standridge, D. Baker, C. Ford, D. Cloward, B. Crawford, J. Swigart, B. Snuffer. The season was climaxed with a banquet held at the High School Cafeteria at which the team presented Coach Graybehl with a silver tea service set.

Starting the season with only two returning letter- men, Captain Jack Turner and Paul Smith, and fighting group of ex-B's, the team became the dark horse in the league. ln their home gym where the Tartars were especially tough, only Jordan and Samohi were able to beat the "hometowners" in the Torrance "shoe box." IBoth were very close games., The two most outstanding games played by the Graybehl coached Casaba-tossers were the Redondo and Beverly Hills games played at home. The Redondo game was hard fought but the outcome was hardly in doubt as Captain Jack Turner in his last game led the team to victory.

Some of the activities they participated in were three parties at Coach Cole's home, a swimming party at Long Beach, sponsoring of the school football dance and queen contest, sponsoring the Spring Dance for the student-body, spon- soring the first annual Father-Son Night, a beach party and a hay ride. The club was led the first semester by President Jack Turner, and the second semester by Al Stevenson.
