Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednndoy, January J4, 1973 THE LETHBRIDOl HIWklB When George Brown sings, watch out! We had the pleasure of hearing this Lethbridge broadcaster sing My love she is but a lassie yet we'll let her'stand a year or two and she will not be so saucie yet." It was a highlight o[ A Nicht wi' Burns at the Lethbridge Legion. Stewart Christie of Claresholm gave us the pi- ano melody. Bom at Calgary, George Brown "'35 raised at Lethbridge and started as an announcer with CJOC in 1939, then was whipped into the army where he served in Austrelia in the signals corps. A trip to Scotland last year enabled George to see the two-room Burns cottage and to stand on the bridge at Brigadoon. Bonnie Scotland the home of good humor. Besides producing the world's best-loved poet. Scotland also gave us Sir Alexander Mackenzie, the first man io cross North America. Among the wild Indian tribes of British Colum- bia he was "V.etis-ra-netlon" r'he whose hair is and to the buckskin frontiersmen of the western wilderness he was Kitchi Okema, "the fast and sudden traveller." Scotland, a country where the honest man, the big heart, hospitality and kindness abound. "But what knows he of Scotland, who only Scot- land So Mr. Brown asked Lethbridge's Harry Lowe, who had been working in a coal mine at the tender age of 10 years, at the Shaughnessy mine until 1939. retired in January. 1961. to give the toast to his adopted land. "I feel about as nervous as a new bride." says Harry. "There's so much I could say about this wonderful land it's hard to make up my mind just what to talk about. "I am going to say a little about an immigrant family, my own. left Glasgow on a Saturday afternoon late in August and arrived in September, 13 days later. The immigrant trains had hard leather seats. You were five days on there without getting your clothes off. My mother was travelling with six bairns. I always remember my first impression of Que. bee. I could hear a lot of bells nnging. Oh my God, there were lots of bells, a bunch of engines switch- ing up and down. I think some of you remember the old engine bells. "When we arrived here. Lethbridge's population was ten or eleven thousand, composed mostly of miners. CPR men and businessmen. This was known in those days as a mining town." He recalls a cold winter when a 15-inch split opened a water pipe. "I will always remember father. We didn't know what to do. I lifted the trap door to go down to shut the water off. By this time there was a lot of water over the floor. "Father grabbed a pot of stew and put it on the heater upstairs, crying. 'Open the doors and the water will run outside'' "Then we couldn't get the door shut. "Mother is crying her eyes out. telling father he has got to go and book passage on the next boat to Scotland." Old Harry Lowe and his four sons served over- seas in the First World War And there was another tale about Harry's home- made whisky and how Lethbridge policeman Pat Eagen came to hear about it. Questioning Mrs. Lowe, all he learned was the "still is on the porch." "Still" turning out to be a "stool." "1 was born a Scotsman and a Scotsman 1 want to die. But we also want to be counted as Canadians." Oaiibrook youth loses friend in social worker Yzermau CRANBKOOK ,v W.
