institution, a task that required boundless enthusiasm, originality

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

No school can function properly with-

The Boys' Court has done its share by
prescribing discipline to the boys of the

dictate to the boys but merely teach
them right from wrong.

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.

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
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
econ in .fd lakagef
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,

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. Ben Agagenian, the star place
kicker for the Los Angeles Dons, was the guest speaker.

The 1947-48 basketball season was one of the most successful in
the school's history. 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. Dick Turner sank a 'field goal in the last fifteen

This year's "C" an
proved to be two of the most outstanding lightweight squads ever to perform at Torrance
High School. The "C" team was led by "Whimpy" Chambers, who sank 44 points during the
season, and ended the season by winning five contests while losing but three.
The "D" team got off to a slow start dropping four consecutive tussles earlier in the year
but later caught on fire to capture their last four games.

The Torrance High School Varsity Club proved to be one of the most successful clubs on
the Campus this past year. They not only participated in activities for their own enioyment
but contributed much in service to the school. 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. Both of these boys and their cabinets deserve a great deal of credit for the
leadership they displayed this past year. Coach Eddie Cole is the club sponsor. I
