Mai Friend, known in south ern Alberta for his refereeinf umpiring and coaching wor in hockey, minor league base- ball and girls' Softball in tli 1950s has been a city residen since 1945. Born in Newport, Washingto in 1907, Mr. Friend moved t Calgary in 1916 and has bee a Canadian and aa Albwta since. An ardent sportsma involved with hockey, baseball football and lacross, he sa service with the Royal Cana Army Medical Corps at il Headquarters 13 in Calgary din- ing the Second World War. It was with the army that Mr Friend qualified as a healt inspector. Discharged in 194 with the rank of. staff sergeant he moved to Lethbridge late that year to join the city healtl department, which became tin Health Unit in 1958. Mr. Friend and his wife Vella, will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary nex year. They have one son, one daughter and four grandchil dren. Reviewing his years with the health unit, Mr. Friend said he was appointed senior health inspector in 1953. In 1951, he attended the Pub- lie Health Service School of Hy- giene in Kansas to take a four- month course in environmental sanitation with emphasis on rat and insect control. After he re- turned, he and the then medi- cal officer Dr. Peggy O'Meara initiated a fly control program in Lethbridge, Picture Butte, Stirling, Fort Macleod Ray- mond and Taber. The mosquito nuisance has since subsided. In 1952, there was a major flood and more than 50 families who lived adjacent to the Old- River were evacuated. After the flood was over, all but one family were relocated. Two years later there was a bug invasion at the north side of the city. Mr. Friend said an airplane had to be called to spray the area to kill the beet webworms. "There has been no major concern for public health dur- ing my years with the health Mr. Friend said. "There have been very few things which you can call big news. I am happy it has been tnat way. Not a single person has died from food poison i n g throughout these years" Mr. Friend has never felt prosecution is necessary "I consider the role of health in- spectors as educational, not that of police officers, and I never prosecuted any restuar- ant, lounges and other public eating and drinking places have improved he said. "I would say that every- thing is under control and I would like to say how much I appreciate the co-operation the citizens of Lethbridge hav given me in these years." Mr. Friend said he and hi wife will be travelling aroun the country to visit friends a "the first thing to do after re tircment." "We will stay in Airs. Friend said. "Lethbridg is our home." I. H. (Ed) Potter will sue ceed Mr. Friend as the senio health inspector.
