In 1951. he "took a flyer in federal politics" in a Manitoba federal byelec- tion. "There were five byelec- tions that day and the party was in the doghouse on a number of issues, including wheat, and lost all he said Walter Dinsdale. later to become a prominent Con- servative front-bencher, defeated Mr. MacEwan by 2.753 votes and he promptly headed for Alber- ta. For 23 years he had been on the agriculture faculties at University of Saskatchewan and Univer- sity of Manitoba. "I had decided it was time for a bold, reckless move or I would be in the university for the rest of my life." So he headed for land he had bought earlier at Prid- dis. 10 miles southwest of Calgary. "I had bought the land at a time when a poor man could still buy land in the he said. "It was always a dream that sooner or later we would move there and I would write." He never made it to Prid- dis because a stopover in Calgary was extended when he became involved with civic politics. His dream of getting back to the land was shelv- ed as he spent five years as alderman, a term as MLA and Liberal party leader and two years as mayor. in 1966, a year after his term as mayor ended, Mr. MacEwan was named lieutenant-governor. "My hope was to make this office a truly provin- cial institution." he said. "I tried to take the office to the countryside and in INSECT SURVEYS To maintain our high standards and to contain or eradicate any foreign insects which become es- tablished in Canada, Agriculture Canada's plant protection people must go beyond inspecting im- ported plant materials at customs offices. They con- duct insect surveys which tell the'extent of an insect problem so steps can be taken to destroy a pest, or at least slow its spread. these 8'i years have managed to reach most corners of Alberta." Much of his travel through the province has been on foot as Mr. MacEwan's term coin- cided with the era of mara- thon chanty walks and he completed so many of the 35-mile hikes that nobody kept track. He reckons he has spent four nights a week at for- mal banquets and gatherings and informal ones most of the other three Despite his love for the work he now is retired from, Mr MacEwan ad- mits there were occasions when he wished he could escape the limelight for a clav or two. Mr. MacEwan keeps most of his personal memories of his term to himself but said there were numerous occasions "that brought tears to a grown man's eyes." MUSHROOM MYTH The best eating mushrooms are not the ones you find in most supermarkets, says an Agriculture Canada mycologist. The best is the Morel, found mostly under dead elm trees. They have been known to sell for a pound in France. FALL EQUIPMENT SWATHERS 120 -16 ft. PTO transport 403-16 ft. PTO No. 28 16 ft. PTO 1_MF No. 30 16 ft. PTO transport 18 ft.
