REG. $100 to $120 October 29, 1984, Magrath - one of Magrath's early pioneers, John Arthus Spencer, passed away suddenly this morning. Art, as he was known by his many friends, came to Alberta with his parents when he was only three years old, from St George, Utah. He grew up in the Magrath area and took his education there, leaving to attend Normal School in Calgary. He taught school in several places and served overseas in both World Wars. In 1920 he married Olga Ann T. Soderman in Red Deer. Shortly after this he left school teaching and farmed south of Magrath. They had six children: Francis (Dorothy) now of London, England; Louise (Dee) Cahoon of Cardston; Geoffrey (Betty) of Cardston; Amy (Vinall) Hatch of Cardston; Marg­rets of Safad, Israel; and Esther .(Cecil) Orchard of Richmond, Ken­tucky. He was a good husband and father as well as performing many community services. A devout mem­ber of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints, he held many offices therein, from his youth up to the time of his dea<_h. He was a patriotic man who served his country well for he believed in it and loved the freedom it prov­ides for it's citizens. His latest endeavour was an extended research of the life of Charles A. Magrath and the history of the early development of South­ern Alberta.

In finals the same evening, this time the smallest band and the smallest schoo.1 in Open Comp etition, SPIRIT placed overall and fourth in music! What a fantastic accomplishment! I realize that, with increasing con­flicts in scheduling and changing .pri­orities, SPIRIT may well have marched its last Championship Level contest. But I also realize, and am so grateful for - the concern and sustenance of the kids and the support mechanisms of the band. I've been a lot of places and had a lot of successes over the past twenty years, but what happened this pastweekend has been an enhuber-aat capping of a wonderful succession of events in and out of education. This past contest is the highlight of my career. The SPIRIT OF ALBERTA that marched, in Salt-Ji was the best band we've prod­uced since I've been at Magrath: in "make it For those of you who weren't can be well assured you are o f champions.

Winning: doing one's best! I ask your tolerance of my weak­nesses and your forgiveness of my personal failings. I'm honored to have had some opportunity to teach your children one of life's most el­usive secrets: there is a price to pay to come to know the joy of acc­omplishing the impossible, of reach­ing beyond their grasp, the thrill of standing honorably among other winners and other champions.
