"I started making shoes when I was 16 years old." He has made very few shoes during the past 20 years. Last year he only made two pair for one of his steady customers. "It takes too much time and one can't charge enough to make it worthwhile." One cold winter in the forties he made 14 pair of cowboy boots but since then it has been mostly repair work.

When Joe first came to Claresholm he worked -on farms in the summer and on shoes in the winter. Finally, work piled up so much after the second year he set up shop and has been at it ever since. In 1963 he returned to his home land and visited has three brothers and three sis- ters but they couldn't per- suade him to stay. Joe is putting in about six hours a day in his shop.
