Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 22, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, June 22, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-5 People of the south By Chris Stewart Parade marshall meets every challenge THE VOICE OF ONE Dr. Frank S. Morley That wasn't Lochinvar you saw coming out of the west along Highway No. 3 the other morning. It was Whoop-Up parade marshall Cleve Hill on his steed Lancer enjoying a two-hour ride before starting his busy day. Like the gallant knight in Sir Walter Scott's poem Marmion, Cleve is fired with determination and his record studded with success. Give him a job to do and it's done1 well. He attacks even the toughest tasks with vigor, making them look easy, when actually without his tenacity he wouldn't complete them at all. His relaxed 6 a.m. horseback ride provides the necessary stamina, he says. Cleve is the former Community Chest persident who kept his 1957 promise and climbed the Red Feather flag pole atop the British Canadian Trust building when the target of was reached. As a Junior Chamber of Commerce member in 1956 he spearheaded the erection of a cairn on the Fort Whoop-Up site (complete with bronze plaque to commemorate the last battle of the Blackfeet and Crees) and served as master of ceremonies at this year's June 1st official fort opening. He'll be installed as president of the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce in September. Although a younger person would tire of his many involvements Cleve seems to thrive on it. He meets every challenge head-on. As chairman of the YMCA's camp committee he persuaded Rotary members in 1958 to finance electrical installations at Camp Inuspi in Waterton Lakes National Park and in March, 1960 spearheaded the raising of for a filtration plant for the Y's pool when its closing was threatened. His committee sent out 10.300 letters in May and by June 1st had realized above their target When he led the civic polls in October. 1960. he kept his campaign promise to fight for the abolition of aldermen's pay. He believed it was a citizen's duty to serve without remuneration but his motion was defeated in November in a five-to-one vote. As an alderman he served on the city's public relations' committee along with Mayor A. W. Shackleford and Alderman B. C. Lonsdale. He has taught Jaycee sponsored effective speaking courses for years both locally and on the Peigan and Blood Reserves and to the Blackfeet and Sarcees and was off judging another class at the University of Lethbridge at the conclusion of our interview. Cleve Hill is a man with Disney-like vision and ambition. As a 13-year director- of the city's exhibition board (president in 1963 and named to the Hall of Fame in advisory board member and chairman of the building committee, he is as excited about future plans as the late Walt was about his Matterhorn. The new grandstand, racing complex and fair grounds' development slated for the fall on the 66-acre site stretching east from Henderson Lake will feature concrete walks, expansive lawns (adequate for football or baseball fields) and a gaslight park. The three-level, glassed-in grandstand will be augmented by a five-bam complex complete with 60 stalls for 300 head. With the stock car track already removed, plans call for the immediate demolition of the existing grandstand following this year's Whoop-up celebration. Cleve's visions are a far cry from the first 1896 exhibition staged in Eckstrom Park make black flies particularly blood thirsn ;
