IRON SPRINGS Mattel- Farm Family Award winner Walter V. Boras, (his familv won it in 19G7K is wondering if he is such master at farming after all. His granary burst its seams the other day. The sides of the little building caved out and grain slid onto the yard. ''My neighbors say if it can happen to a master farmer it can happen to lie says. Eut he is one of the busiest people in the Iron Springs community. He was born in Vitina. Her- cegouina, Yugoslavia. Dec. 5, 1923, son of the late Peter Boras and the late Mrs. Kathrine Boras. His father emigrated to Al- berta from Yugoslavia :n 1928. The family followed in 1933. Walter was 10. He married Anne Eva Bulva of Iron Springs Jan 10. 1950. They have five children, Pal- rica. Carol, Lorraine, Susan and David. After completing his educa- tion he served in the RCAF lor three years during the Second World "War. Upon returning to Iron Springs he launched a tarming enterprise. His first involvement in com- munity affairs came in 1948 when he helped to organize the Turin-Iron Springs Rural Elec- trification Association. After it went into operation he served for a time as a board member. His farm is irrigated and on several occasions through the years he has found himself in- volved in irrigation in more ways than one. He was a member of the Lethbridge Northern Irrigation District board of directors for four years after which he rep- resented the on the Al- berta Irrigation Projects Asso- ciation. He also as vice-chairman of the Leth- bridge Northern Sugar Beet Growers Association. About 12 years ago Mr. Boras and many neighbors had -100 j acres under water and the crops were ruined. He led a del-' egation to the agriculture min-1 ister, Harry Strom. He agreed they had a case and the ne- i cessary drainage was steered j through, the Battersea drain. A c o s t sharing agreement was worked out between the j county of Lethbridge. the Leth- bridge Northern Irrigation Dis- J trict and the water resources branch of the department of j agriculture for the drain con- j struction. i Mr. Boras operates in one of i Canada's greatest sugar beet I growing areas. Growers solved the labor problem by bringing In Indian labor from northern Alberta and Saskatchewan to hoe beets. Canada Manpower officials and growers felt the accommodation for Indian la- Dor left much to be desired. Mr. Boras and five neighbors showed that it was possible to conditions by organiz- ing the Battersea Labor Hostel. They acquired a war-time building from the Lethbridge j Flying Club in I960 with a walk- i in refrigerator, kitchen and din- i ing room. The hostel is one of the first of its kind in Canada and houses 30 laborers. It is lo- cated miles south of Iron Spiings. within two miles of each participating farmsr. The year 1967 was also when he as a member of the nevly- formed Coyote Flats Historical Society, helped to produce and unveil the Coyote Flats Histori- j cal a 400-page history of the community and sur- rounding area which was to re- ceive a literary award from the American Association For State and Local History. His farming ranching op- eration has continued to expand and recently he. as president of Pmzsauer Breeders Ltd.. a syndicate of five, was instru- mental in introducing the Aus-' trian Pinzgaucr breed of cattle to North America. Walter and Anne Boras and their live children lead a busy j life but they never miss an op-. portunity to he Of service to the church and the community.
