Tartar Teen Talk
By BEBTA ROGAN, FR 5-8998
Tartarville election* is coming up next week so any Tartars who are planning on running for office should obtain their application blanks from the student activities office. Torrance High prides itself on the fact that over 85 percent of the students vote In student body elections, how about pulling it up to 100 percent this semester? Today is the deadline for turning in application blanks. Tryouts for the Tartar Variety Show were closed Tuesday The Drama Department is really getting to work on this and it should be really good this year. It’s open to the public so when you see advertising posters around town, make a mental note and be sure to see it. Say all you Tartars who are supposed to have such wonderful school spirit, where have you been at the basketball games? We won third place in the Beverly Hills tournament last week. Richard Ruff el won a place on the first string all-tournament team for the second year, also Gene Crenshaw won a place on the second string team. Tuesday, we played our first league basketball game again Centennial, and tomorrow night1 at 7, we play Santa Monica, in the Tartar gym. So let’s have everyone turn out to the game, students and parents alike. There were many parties in the homes of Tartars during; the Christmas vacation but from what I hear the one held by Ollie Lessin was one of the best. The party was open to everyone and was held on Dec. 26. Everyone played bongo and congo drums, danced and, M usual ate.
