What is T1lRTllH TUWN?
l. TARTAR TOWN, the place for students to relax during their free
period, snack, lunch, and after school, eases Mary Ridge and Ray
Kelley's day of studies.
2. MIERRY TIMES are had by Joyce Schaffer, Donna Busse, and Jean
Hammond while eating and taking it easy at T.H.S.'s malt shop.
3, MRS. TAYLOR, the manager, and MR. STEINBAUGH confer over the
cash register. Students help in Tartar Town to manage the business,
to learn food handling and the importance of public relations -
courtesy and cooperation.
To lVlr. Charles Wallace, boys' vice principal
of Torrance High School, we respectfully dedi-
cate this Torch of l95O.
The Seniors of 1950 will long remember the
understanding and encouragement that you, Mr.
Wallace, have extended to us through our Junior
and Senior years.
XVithout your patience and inspiration and
able assistance the class activities would not have
been carried out as successfully as they were.

The student council of the fall semester 1949-50 was the flrst
to handle and manage Tartar Town as a student project. The
city fathers granted their request for the park in front of the school
as campus. Under the direction of president Ronnie Higgins the
council met daily to approve and schedule home football games,
manage the student stores and authorize the payments of bills
made by school organizations.
Their day and also the spring '50 council's day was the excursion
to the local courts.
Demonstrative activity was the variety aud call with student
talent and a musical show from El Segundo. The high point of
their stay in office was the initiation of a Bay League Dance which
was held in the Civic Aud on November 26, 1949. The dance was
given to promote friendship among the Bay League schools.
