Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, October 23, 1973 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 15 D'Arcy Rlckard District Huntley Brown and illustration he did for Maclean's Huntley Brown is one of Canada's top il- lustrators. He was born and raised in Lethbridge. His story illustrations appear regularly in Maclean's. He sold his first illustration to Chatelaine magazine in 1957. At various times his cartoons have appeared in the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star. He has also done some magnificent illustrations for these papers. I met Hunt at Waterton in the fall of 1954. A casual conversation over a couple of beers has developed into a long and rewarding friendship. (Rewarding for me, at any rate, because I get a tremendous "kick" out of seeing each new Huntley Brown We were both headed for Toronto but I mis- sed the train at Lethbridge and had to settle for the bus. Hunt caught the train and the next time I saw him he was deep in studies at the Ontario College of Art. After four years at the school, studying commercial art and illustration, he graduated with honors and also won the Governor-General's Medal. Born in Lethbridge in 1932, he is the son of the late Dr. T. E. Brown. He attended St. Aloyisius School here, receiving his early en- couragement in art from the late Miss Kay Roy. Hunt was further encouraged when his father took up painting water colors as a hobby in 1940. Hunt and his dad painted all over Southern Alberta for the next few years. The youth attended St. Patrick's School. He entered many local poster competitions. This paid off in 1945 when he won a United Nations Summer Art Scholarship at Vancouver. All the time, young Brown was a magazine addict. He was studying the work of the top American artists men like Robert Fawcett, Noel Sickles and John Clymer (a top illustrator who attended the Vancouver School of Art) and others Fawcett was Hunt's idol and he is still inspired by his il- lustrations in Collier's for the Sherlock Holmes stones. All that is past now. The major magazines have folded and magazine illustrations are not as plentiful as they were in the 1940s and 1950s. Hunt married Maureen Russell in 1956 He then pursued a career in the commercial art field in Toronto, working for various art studios Mr. Brown is now at the peak of his powers. He has an American and London agent who represents him for various foreign assignments. His is a varied and esciting career illustrating books, magazine fiction and editorial articles. He, his wife and four children live near Markham, Ont., about 20 miles from Toronto. Hunt has been a freelance artist for the past eight years. Twenty years ago he was a struggling art student. He has been true to himself and true to his work The Canadian art scene is thereby the richer.

Whitehead was honored with a trophy. The predicted onslaught of Bertha armyworms against rapeseed crops in the province failed to materialize in 1973 according to figures released by the Alberta Department of Agriculture The annual fall survey to count Bertha armyworm pupae shows only three small areas of the province are like- ly to suffer from armyworm infestations next year, says entomologist Hugh Philip of Edmonton And the infestation is ex- pected to be light in the Fairview-Grande Prairie, Ed- monton and Calgary-Vulcan regions Another pupae survey will be conducted next spring to provide more up-to-date figures of pending Bertha ar- myworm numbers, says Mr. Philip. Only acres of rapeseed crops were sprayed in Alberta in 1973 compared with acres in 1972. All areas sprayed this year coin- cided with predicted infesta- tion regions during the 1973 spring survey. Mr. Philip says the reason for the dramatic decrease in this year's Bertha army worm Curling club prepares for season PINCHER CREEK (Special) Members of the Pincher Creek Curling Club have been busy preparing for the new season, expected to gel unu'pr way Monday, Oct. 29. Club members took on the project of installing additional insulation in the roof of the rink and have also purchased an electric boot cleaner. Provisions have been made for a six-team high school curling league. Individual application forms for membership may be obtained at the main offices of Matthew Halton and St. Michael's high schools. The club is endeavoring to organize a mixed league for farmers and other rural residents of the community. Play would be in the mornings or afternoons, as preferred, on one or two days each week. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are the proposed days, to 4 p.m. 8 boy cubs leaderless FOREMOST (Special) There are about eight Cubs in Foremost waiting to go into Scouts this year but nobody is willing to lead them. Ths was the report presented to the recent dis- trict scout council meeting here. Fourteen representatives from Foremost, Manyberries, Orion, Burdett and Bow Island reported on Scouting ac- tivities in the respective dis- tricts. Foremost Cubs under leader Irene Wallman are among the most active in the region. The pack now numbers 31 boys. However, due to the lack of Scout leadership, the boys have nowhere to go when they are too old for Cubs. outbreak isn't known but the weather and high incidence of disease and parasites likely played an important role in the decrease. In the south, extreme dry conditions caused the rapeseed crops to mature early, avoiding much of the damage of the armyworms and eliminating the necessity of spraying. Wake-a-thon LOMOND (HNS) Lo- mond School pupils will hold a "wake-a-thon" Nov. 2. 3 and 4. Sponsors will pledge to donate an amount of money for each hour the pupil stays awake. Money raised will buy books for the school library. Five guidelines have been drawn up to help combat the problem of excess salts in farm soils that is preventing maximum crop production on about 20 million acres of prairie land. Representatives from the Canada and Alberta departments of agriculture, Alberta Department of the Environment and universities from the three prairie provinces met in Lethbridge recently to plan effective methods of alleviating the effects of soil salinity. The problem is evident in Southern Alberta on both dryland and irrigation farms. It appears as large white patches in the fields caused by soil salts rising to the surface 125 skaters registered CLARESHOLM (Special) Acitivities of the Foothills Skating Club are under way with 125 skaters registered Club professional is Keith Goldsmith.

Fodor. and is commonly called an alkali condition. The researchers have deter- mined areas of research, in- cluding: efforts to apply and extend present available knowledge. the systems by which water flows and moves salts in soils where dryland salinity has developed. determine suitable methods for managing naturally saline soils to per- mit profitable irrigation. improve methods of preventing seepage and salini- ty of soils in irrigation dis- tricts. to select species and varieties of economically useful crops that will withs- tand high salt concentrations. Hank Vander Pluym has been hired as a soil specialist for the Alberta Department of Agriculture. His main respon- sibility will be working on the dryland salinity problem.
