CAREERS Pioneer recalls tough years of settlement By MARIE SORGARD Herald News Service IRON SPRINGS Hugh Arthur. 81. has spent 64 of his years in the Iron Springs com- munity and has a record of public service to be proud of. He was reeve for 20 years when the MD and later County of Lethbridge was centred at Barons. "1 never had a fight when I was reeve. I was on council with the late Steve Houlton for eight years. Steve (later reeve) was a good fellow. I got along with him pretty good. He was a likeable cuss.'' One of a family of seven that came here from Kilmar- nock. Scotland, he arrived in Lethbridge in 1909. He still has vivid memories of the misunderstanding that took place betweeen his father and an uncle here during an exchange of letters. It resulted in the Arthur family spending two days waiting in the immigration hall in north Lethbridge. Finally a Mr. Pharis arrived with two wagons. Baggage, trunks, and the seven members of the Arthur family loaded into the wagons and 1 Merchandise on Sale Thursday Friday and Saturday, October 4, 5 and 6 Quantities Limited MEN'S 36 to 46 Plaids and Plains in wool flannel and Fortrel Fabrics.

They arrived here only to learn that the building in which they were going to live had been destroyed by fire. Their first shelter was a 10- foot by 12-foot granary. Once land was obtained, Hugh helped his father build a house. The winter of 1909-1910 was much colder than they had anticipated and before the next winter rolled around the insulation factor was given attention. Thus began Hugh Arthur's life in Iron Springs. He soon became involved in farming, retiring only a few years ago. DAIRY SERVICE He provided dairy service to the hamlet, delivering the milk on foot daily. His wife Erma was an excellent cook and the Arthur home was a haven for teachers and elevator agents looking for a place to board. When the Iron Springs North West Mutual telephone Com- pany was formed Nov. 21, 1935, he became secretary- treasurer, a job which he kept for 34 years. Then the installa- tion "of the automatic telephone system marked the end of the era of the "party line." He was elected councillor of the Barons MD in 1942. In 1950 he was appointed reeve and hejd that position until Jan. 1, 1964. Bob Madill, secretary- treasurer of the Lethbridge County 26, who worked with him in the capacity of secretary-treasurer of the Barons municipality, has high regard for the manner in which he handled his respon- sibilities. Road-building programs and the provision of welfare were but two of the many tacets of administration re- quiring attention. Temporarily living in Pic- ture Butte, Mr. Arthur several times a week commutes back and forth to the Iron Springs farm which is still "home" to him. Mr. Arthur is staying now in Room II of the Picture Butte Hotel. Sometimes he drops in to the Happy Oldtimers Club rooms. "They have a little pool table there." he says. "You know, that is about all the recreation you can get but you can't get hold of that table. It's always tied up." Mr. Arthur has had ms share of troubles in this vale of tears, as most of us do. IN HOSPITAL His wife Erma is a patient at the Alberta Hospital At Ponoka. She suffered harden- ing of the arteries which reduced the supply of blood to the brain. "All our trouble seems to come at the end, all in a he says. "I never left the farm. I go out there every day. I try to keep the yard clean. I go out only in the daytime don't figure I should talk to myself at night." Raised a Presbyterian, he has a strong faith and laughs off his problems. Do you like to read the Lethbridge Herald?
