Just as every wind that circles the earth helps to bring a precious cycle of water, every year of our schooling helps to shape our tomorrows. As the sun sets and leaves the world on its own, our interests turn from the short course of classroom life toward the long highway that marks our promising future. Yet somewhere in the time to come there will be a path, the "key" leading back to the happy years we have spent in school. We trust that road will be the 1.959 Torch. lfieoilieeaffsi We the Annual Staff of Tor- rance High School dedicate the l959 Torch to American Educa- tion and to the thousands of teachers and administrators that make up its structure, "lt is the right of every Amer- ican from childhood on, to have access to knowledge, in our form of society, this right ot the in- dividual takes on a special meaning, for the education of all our citizens is imperative to the maintenance and invigoration of America's institutions." -President Eisenhower Message to Congress, January, 1955 1..., - - an-'M :Mi "' A -.n ... .. 5 -ai M-ri-as 'ls ?

They had a 2 win 3 loss record, scored 66 points and had 67 scored against them. Redondo fell to the Cees 27-O. Fortune reversed itsef when Santa Fe dropped the Tartar Cees 34-O. Morningside limped to a 13-i2 win over the locals who scored in the closing seconds and Inglewood couldn't hold the reiuvenated Cees who won their second game in four starts 21 -O. Leuzinger added a sad note to the final game of the season by hanging a I3-6 duke on the homebreds in a closely fought defensive game. Outstanding players were Bob Roy, Captain who scored in four of five games and Joe Van Huss who called defensive signals and backed the line every minute of defensive play for four games. ln the last game Joe was out for 2 minutes and Leuzinger went 70 yards in 5 plays during this time.

They finished 2nd in Bay -eague behind Redondo Beach. Tony Augustine was the captain of the team and was an inspiration throughou.t the season. Bob Neister led all scoring and rebounding, scoring 27 and 28 points in 'wo different games, breaking the school record at that time. Jim Jester was another vital cog in the machine with his passing and :lriving methods. He was second in individual scoring. Terry Taylor Jnd Russ Roberts rounded out the starting five with fine games. The first part ot the season looked like a great year for the C eam, as they won 8 of their first 9 games, but starting the first 3 games, they lost the first 2 in overtimes, and it seemed to mark the Jathway for the remainder of the year. Actually it was not a bad fear considering that they won more than they lost. Eleazar Ybarra vas the captain, and playmaker for the team, doing an outstanding ob all year. lrv Palica was leading scorer, with George Ojard lead- ng the team in rebounds. Jerry Mclean and Damon VVisham rounded rut an outstanding team with their outstanding desire and spirit. Bob Weister goes up for an easy two points on c. fast break away.

Torn Richardson's shut-out pitching and a clutch 7th inning single by senior Ron Veres, pro- vided an outstanding thrilling victory at the losers' park. In the first game of the second round Ron Veres pitched all the way in an eleven inning marathon victory over the defending champions, Inglewood. Ron's pitching grew stronger with each inning as he struck out 9 men and didn't give up a hit in the last five innings. Ron was backed up by lO Tartar hits in the exciting 6 to 5 contest that ended under the lights on the home dia- mond.
