"My only says Scotty, 65, "is that I waited so long to get into the business." Scotty's first job was as an apprentice to a sign writer in Winnipeg during the depres- sion. His employer confined him to lettering signs reading MEN or WOMEN. Scotty didn't see much fu- ture in that job so one day he sat down at a borrowed type- writer and wrote an imagi- nary story about his unsuc- cessful attempt to get an old circus elephant he found in Portage La Prairie, Man., to lead him to the fabled ele- phant burial ground in Africa and a fortune in ivory tusks. The story, sold to a Western Canadian magazine for led to a job offer from the Winni- peg Free Press and started Scotty on a journalistic career that eventually saw him serve as a reporter, city editor, sports editor, executive editor and editor of Regina Leader- Post. It was In sports that Scotty made his mark but he also en- joyed his other tasks. "It was all important." Scotty pined the Leader- Post sports department in 1935, at the age of 27. Four years later lie joined the Queen's Own Cameron High- landers and went overseas as a sergeant in December, 1940. He was captured in the Dieppe raid in August, 1942, and spent 32 months in a Ger- man prison camp. He returned to Regina and The Leader-Post in June, 1945, and was named sports editor in 1948. Except for a one-year stint as city editoi, he re- mained in charge of the sports department until 1963 when he became executive ed- itor. Scotty, who succeeded the late D. B. Rogers as editor in 1964, did more than just write about sport. He was one of the first sports writers to suggest an schedule for the Canadian ootball League, an idea eventually adopted in the 1930s. He helped establish the Ca- nadian schoolboy curling championship, an idea first promoted by Maurice Smith, sports editor of Winnipeg Free Press. "I don't take py credit for Scotty said in an inter- view, "it was Smitty's idea." He was secretary of the Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association (SAHA) for 16 years, Saskatchewan representative at the founding of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in Toronto in 1955 and a member of the original Physi- cal Fitness Council of Canada formed in 1959. Scotty was fascinated by athletes but never approved entirely of some aspects of spectator sports. He deplored the week-long Grey Cup foot- ball festivals and becamt highly derisive when in 1959 writers in the press box went requested to select the out- standing player in the Winni- peg-Hamilton Grey Cup bears GASOLINE EVERYDAY LOW PRICE Regular 45 50 Gal.
