During World War 2, Tena spent long and late hours assisting the Red Cross by knitting warm socks and mittens for our soldiers abroad, while at War's end, and as the Polish soldiers were finding new lives in Canada - which meant a necessary two years of farm work upon arrival - Tena and her husband John provided these soldiers with a warm and loving home to come to during weekend release times. Her strong spiritual life led her to become a member of the P.S.N., a second language teacher at the Polish National Association and a founding member of Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish which she and her husband remained lifelong and active members of, involved in activities that included the organization of the Seniors Club, and personally designing and creating quilts and afghans each year to raise funds for charity. She remained a member of the Board of Directors of Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish into her 85th year. In her professional life, from 1960 until her retirement, Tena was not only a respected and loved staff member of Eatons but an historical employee; although she began her career in the Housewares department, Tena became the singular person at Eatons to be honoured with the position of "Rover" which meant she was an expert in every department of the store. Visitors will be received on Sunday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. at the O'Neil Funeral Home, 350 William St. (Between King & York).

BLADEK gave from heart
By Sharon HO, Free Press Reporter
Antonette BLADEK was a woman who never stopped giving.
"She was an extraordinary, generous, kind woman," said her daughter, Louise Ann BLADEK of London.
BLADEK, who moved to London nearly 70 years ago, died June 16 from cancer at the age of 92.
Tena, as she was called, learned about the importance of giving to others from her parents.
"Mother saw it as her prime objective, by example of her parents, that others in the world needed to be loved and comforted," Louise Ann said.
BLADEK's lessons about caring for others was learned as a child, when her family "adopted" a man from their church, who moved in with the family.
Her generosity kept her busy during the Second World War when she knitted socks and mittens for Canadian soldiers.
In the late 1940s, Tena and her husband, John, took former Polish soldiers into their home as the men moved to Canada to start a new life after the war. It really helped that Tena was fluent in Polish.
"I do remember as a little kid waking up and finding people sleeping in our house," Louise Ann said. "Our house was known as the place where anyone could get food."
A spiritual woman, BLADEK was a founding member of Our Lady of Czestochowa Church in London.
"We needed her because she was bilingual and she was a woman of faith," said Reverend Peter SANCZENKO, a former priest at the church.
BLADEK helped raise money for the church before it was built. On one occasion, she and her brother-in-law, John DAWIDOWSKI, knocked on an apartment door asking for money, Louise Ann said.
It was a one-bedroom apartment and the family was using blankets to divide the apartment into compartments.
But when BLADEK and DAWIDOWSKI said they were collecting money for a Polish church," Louise Ann said, the family "donated 100 $1 bills.... She said that was the greatest gift she had gotten that day."
The church also remembered BLADEK for her generosity.
"She was always willing to help when you called her," SANCZENKO said. "She always found time for others. She shared her time and gifts (pleasantness, cheerfulness and helpfulness) with others."

A Tribute To Marion
(written by one of Marion's special Friends)
Such a special friend is so hard to find, and we were so blessed to call you "mine".
You cherished your family with love and pride, and graciously took each day in stride.
Together with Bruce you shared a wonderful life, you each chose so well for a husband and wife.
Your children you cherished, your precious grandchildren as well, with each new arrival your heart would swell.
Your gardens, your flowers you tended with care, your gifts and your talents you would unselfishly share.
Your quiet little chuckle, your beautiful brown eyes, your welcoming home, your meals and your pies.
As a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a grandma, an aunt, a niece or a friend, you loved each and everyone right to the end.
In cards we were told we didn't play our hands, so we laughed and we chuckled and tried a new plan.
But trying to play like the men soon went amuck, because they really never had a plan.. just plain old luck.
A campfire, a New Years eve party, a visit... whatever, we always had such a great time together
We will cherish always these wonderful things, especially now that you've been given your angel wings.
We know not what the Lord has in His plan, so we will carry on bravely and try to understand.
Your journey has been such an incredible one, but far too soon, that journey was done.
Your reward in Heaven will be great I know, for your faith and your courage you would always show.
Some days like these in life it seems the pleasures are few, but we only have to recall what a pleasure it was to have a friend like you!

Standoff ends when police find body
Highway 21 blocked for about eight hours
By Scott DUNN, Tuesday, June 28, 2005
People who knew Frank KUNKEL were shocked to learn he was found dead, apparently by gunshot in his home, after a lengthy standoff with police that began Sunday evening.
The standoff also forced dozens of Allenford residents to wait for hours behind roadblocks at both ends of the village Sunday night. They went up about 4: 30 p.m., blocking the busy provincial highway, and stayed up until about midnight, by one estimate.
About 50 people waited in the parking lot of Drifters Restaurant Sunday evening for news. There was speculation that KUNKEL must have shot himself, though police have not confirmed his death was suicide.
The Ontario Provincial Police issued a news release saying police responded about 4: 19 p.m. Sunday to a report of an armed, barricaded person on Elizabeth Drive. Ontario Provincial Police negotiators attempted to negotiate with KUNKEL, police said. The Ontario Provincial Police tactics and rescue unit entered KUNKEL's home about 10: 59 p.m. and found him dead “of what appeared to be a gunshot wound,” the statement said.
KUNKEL's body was removed Monday morning from the white stucco two-storey house at the northwest corner of Elizabeth and Highway 21 in Allenford. Forensic investigators attended the scene later in the day.
The Special Investigations Unit, a civilian police investigation agency, is involved because the area was secured by the police at the time, the police news release said.
Two Special Investigations Unit members were at the house Monday morning. Bruce Peninsula Ontario Provincial Police detachment commander Mario BARTENS referred all media questions to the Special Investigations Unit. No one from the Special Investigations Unit returned a call from The Sun Times Monday afternoon.
People in Allenford said Monday the 59-year-old KUNKEL they knew smiled easily, always waved and was a “happy-go-lucky” fellow.
KUNKEL, who had worked performing winter maintenance along Highway 21, lived in the house with his wife, Marilyn. They have three grown children, two girls and a boy. Neighbours didn't think the children lived with their parents. One son and one daughter were believed to be among those waiting in the parking lot at Drifters Sunday night.
Neighbour accounts help piece the story together.
Allenford lawyer Richard EVANS lives east of the KUNKELs, about one block away by the United Church. Some time around 2 p.m. or so, he heard what he believed was a gunshot.
Fran GORDON, a realtor, was showing the house next door along Highway 21 to potential buyers about 4 p.m. They were standing on the back deck around 4: 30 p.m. when a neighbour came over and asked them to leave because of a family emergency.
GORDON said it was quiet and all appeared Okay, until she saw Marilyn KUNKEL, whom she's known all her life. “I did see her sitting at the side of the road. And she was hysterical. I saw that.” A neighbour took her away and GORDON left just before police arrived.
One neighbour who spoke to The Sun Times but wouldn't give her name, said KUNKEL drove by on his all-terrain vehicle just 30 minutes before police arrived, waving at his neigbours. “That's why everyone's so shocked because he seemed all right when he came by.&rdquo
She said the KUNKELs “kind of kept to themselves.&rdquo
GORDON said the KUNKELs helped out an elderly neighbour whose house GORDON is selling. The KUNKELs shoveled her snow and kept an eye on her. One of the KUNKEL daughters is due to be married in about one month, GORDON added.
“It's so unexpected, it threw everybody. But I guess you never know what goes on inside, behind closed doors,” said GORDON, who had spoken to the KUNKELs the day before in their yard.
At Drifters on Monday, Pat and Fred DAWSON said they knew the KUNKELs well. Marilyn worked at the restaurant for five years until she quit in March. They dined together and Frank KUNKEL often ate breakfast in the restaurant, at the eastern edge of Allenford.
Fred called Frank KUNKEL “happy-go-lucky” and considers his death “off-the-wall.” KUNKEL was a hunter who owned guns, Fred said. The KUNKELs recently bought all-terrain vehicles and the couple would go four-wheeling with family and Friends. Summers were spent in a trailer at Dreamaker Family Campgrounds, east of Allenford. The KUNKELs seemed at ease, the DAWSONs said.
“When we found out it was them, we were puzzled and a little confused because we just never thought it would be something like that,” Fred said.
Police took over the restaurant as their command post Sunday night. Negotiators used the empty store adjoining the restaurant.
Police officers, including some wearing camouflage with faces darkened with makeup, came and went from the restaurant while about 50 residents waited for hours in the parking lot, in their cars or on the grass across the highway.
About 300 people live in Allenford and many had been out Sunday afternoon. Police told people they couldn't go home because of some unspecified concern involving firearms.
Police helped people who were forced to wait behind the roadblocks.
One Allenford man with a heart condition told police he might need his medication at home. Police offered to go to Owen Sound to get him a new prescription, though it turned out not to be necessary. Police also snuck around Allenford to the back of one house to check on a teenaged girl home alone and found her all right, residents said.
Some people tired of waiting and found their own way home, sometimes on foot through a farm field.

Glencoe man drowns in north
By Free Press Staff, Thurs., December 15, 2005
The drowning death of a local man in northern Ontario was still under investigation by police yesterday, Parry Sound Ontario Provincial Police said.
Ron LIVINGSTON, 40, of Glencoe, was boating with four other people Tuesday afternoon on icy Lake Joseph when their five-metre boat took on water and quickly sank. LIVINGSTON was the only one who didn't swim to shore, police said.
A three-hour search ended about 8 p.m. when LIVINGSTON's body was found, said Chief Dave THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON of the Seguin fire department, which led the search.
Attempts to reach the LIVINGSTON family in Glencoe yesterday were unsuccessful.
Police said LIVINGSTON was part of a crew working on cottages on the lake.
It was unlikely any of the men were from the Parry Sound area, Ontario Provincial Police Const. Kristine DAWSON said, adding boaters at this time of year are rare in that region.
"It's just not a very safe time to be out there," she said.

James DOOHAN, Soldier And Actor: 1920-2005
He was an 'accidental actor' who got his start when he stumbled into a radio station in London, Ontario He found fame as Scotty on Star Trek, but not before he had already experienced real-life heroics on D-Day
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Saturday, July 23, 2005, Page S9
'Och, Cap'n, Scotty cannae work for ye any more."
Star Trek's chief engineer, Lt.-Cmdr. Montgomery Scott, was irascible, excitable and prone to delivering dire warnings in a Scots burr. As portrayed by Canadian James DOOHAN, Scotty became a favourite of the cult television program's legions of fans.
Many assumed the actor shared traits with his character, but out of his red uniform, Mr. DOOHAN was a serious actor with a substantial list of credits. As a young man, he led soldiers as part of the D-Day invasion in an attack which he later described as "giving Hitler the finger."
Mr. DOOHAN's chief engineer character cursed dilithium crystals and coaxed power from overstressed warp-drive engines on the Starship Enterprise. The order to be beamed aboard was directed at Mr. DOOHAN; " Beam me up, Scotty" became a cultural catchphrase, as well as the punchline to innumerable jokes. Mr. DOOHAN became so associated with the command that he used it as the title of his autobiography.
Yet, the program's dedicated fans -- their numbers legion and their allegiance bordering on the fanatical -- insist no character ever uttered the phrase. "Beam me up, Scotty" is to Star Trek what "Play it again, Sam" is to Casablanca.
After the original series ended following a three-year run, Mr. DOOHAN was upset at being typecast as the irascible engineer with the unforgettable burr. After all, he had earlier performed Shakespeare under the direction of Mavor Moore and won notice for his performances in dramas telecast by the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. He eventually made peace with the character, whom he portrayed in subsequent feature films. He also became a frequent and well-received guest at Star Trek conventions.
A first-class mimic, Mr. DOOHAN tested eight accents when auditioning for the role. "Well, if you want an engineer," he told Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, "it had better be a Scotsman." Mr. DOOHAN settled on a dialect he described as an Aberdeen brogue.
Scotty's accent, it has been noted by one newspaper, fooled no one north of Berwick-upon-Tweed, let alone a Scotsman. Yet the near-comic urgency of his delivery compelled many fans into worshipful imitation. The actor named the character after his maternal grandfather, James MONTGOMERY, a sea captain.
In many ways, Mr. DOOHAN imbued the chief engineer with what could be described as Canadian qualities. His practical warnings ("In four hours, the ship blows up") and excitable protestations ("Ah canna change the laws of physics") always gave way to a resourceful fortitude in completing a task, however dangerous or improbable.
The actor may have drawn on his own experiences as a veteran of the Second World War. He was wounded during the D-Day invasion of Normandy in an incident he described as "giving Hitler the finger."
Those who found his accent unconvincing were not surprised to learn he traced his Scottish roots to an ancestor who lived three centuries ago. He was Irish by heritage and Canadian by birth. James Montgomery DOOHAN, conceived in Belfast, was born in Vancouver on March 3, 1920. His parents and three older siblings had just emigrated to Canada, arriving in Halifax on New Year's Day.
In his 1996 autobiography, Mr. DOOHAN describes his father as a dentist, pharmacist, veterinarian and drunkard. His memories were of a household made unhappy by his father's alcohol-fuelled rages. The family moved to Sarnia, Ontario, when the boy was 6. Two years later, while serving as an altar boy at a Catholic mass, Jimmy suddenly felt delirious and was rushed from church. He was diagnosed with diphtheria.
Around home, he was known to imitate the voices he heard on the radio or at the cinema. At 16, he played the title role in a school production of Robin Hood at Sarnia Collegiate Institute and Technical School.
Eager to leave home, he enlisted as a gunner in the Royal Canadian Artillery immediately after Canada declared war on Germany on September 10, 1939. After learning Morse code and earning a commission as an officer, Mr. DOOHAN spent two frustrating years in training in England. He served as a general's aide-de-camp during the planning for the Dieppe raid.
On June 6, 1944, Mr. DOOHAN commanded 120 men of D Company of the Royal Winnipeg Rifles. In the early morning of D-Day, he joined the landings on Juno Beach. While he saw a captain go insane and another man suffer a grievous stomach wound, Mr. DOOHAN managed to lead his men to the seaside village of Graye-sur-Mer without casualty.
Soon, however, they came under fire from a machine-gun lodged in a church tower. Mr. DOOHAN, a command post officer by rank, borrowed a rifle. His first shot missed, but each of the next two shots felled a German soldier and the nest went silent. He never learned whether he had killed or wounded the enemy.
Shortly before midnight, Mr. DOOHAN was walking to his command post when a "machine-gun opened up on us. It hit me and spun me around. Staggering, I fell down into the shell hole," he wrote in his autobiography. "Then I looked at my right hand and saw the blood covering it. I could see the holes in my middle finger."
He walked to a regimental aid post where it was discovered four bullets had also imbedded in his left leg. In his shock at the three shots that smashed his right hand, Mr. DOOHAN hadn't even noticed the other wounds.
He examined the rest of his uniform, discovering a bullet hole in his shirt. He reached his left hand to his right breast pocket. "I pulled out the sterling silver cigarette case that my brother Bill had given me when I was his best man. And there I discovered a dent in it.
"The bullet had come in at an angle, ricocheted off the cigarette case, and bounced away. Four inches from my heart."
The finger was amputated. Years later, Star Trek fans would detail scenes in which the absence of the digit is noticeable. For his part, Mr. DOOHAN was always self-conscious about the loss. He often subtly camouflaged his right hand.
After six years in uniform, he was left with few plans for the future at the end of war. He became an actor by accident. Annoyed by poor performances in a radio drama, Mr. DOOHAN went to radio station CFPL in London, Ontario, to record himself reading from Shakespeare and other works. He disliked what he heard, but an enthusiastic sound engineer convinced him he was a natural. By coincidence, a brochure for a Toronto drama school had arrived at the station not an hour earlier. The novice signed up, and soon won a scholarship to study at the Neighbourhood Playhouse School of the Theater in Manhattan.
Mr. DOOHAN was taught by Sanford Meisner, whose eponymous technique of self-investigation was heavily influenced by the great Russian director Constantine Stanislavsky. Others attending the school in those years included Lee Marvin and Leslie Nielsen, a fellow Canadian who became a close friend.
A versatile performer, Mr. DOOHAN did not want for work. From 1950 to 1958, he appeared in, by his count, 450 live television broadcasts and 4,000 radio shows, shuttling from New York to Toronto. He was called Canada's busiest actor. He starred in Flight into Danger, an hour-long television drama aired on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's General Motors Theatre in 1956. Mr. DOOHAN portrayed a traumatized fighter pilot who takes over the controls of a commercial airliner after both pilots are incapacitated by food poisoning. The script was the first written by Arthur Hailey, a British émigré who settled in Canada after the war and went on to write such blockbusters as Airport and Hotel.
A role as an agent on the television series Treasury Men in Action evaporated without explanation soon after director David Pressman was identified as a Communist. Only later did Mr. DOOHAN learn he had lost the gig to an actor who secretly accused him of being a Red.
In 1963, Mr. DOOHAN appeared as a defence attorney in his first feature film, The Wheeler Dealers, a romantic comedy starring James Garner and Lee Remick, directed by Edmonton-born Arthur Hiller. Meanwhile, his list of television credits reads like an anthology of cult hits. He appeared in episodes of Bewitched, Ben Casey, Bonanza, Gunsmoke, The Outer Limits, The Twilight Zone, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
The three-year run of the original Star Trek series cemented the actor's image in the public mind as a blustery but dependable miracle worker in a red uniform. He was paid just $850 U.S. per episode in the inaugural season.
A cast so familiar now -- with William SHATNER, another Canadian, starring as Capt. James T. Kirk; Leonard Nimoy as the logical Mr. Spock, a pointy-eared Vulcan; and DeForest Kelley as the crusty Dr. Leonard H. (Bones) McCoy -- won only a modest audience at first. The series lasted just three seasons, two years short of the Enterprise's promised "five-year mission to explore strange new worlds."
The low-budget series allowed for strong characterizations, which in part explains Star Trek's success in syndication. The series became a phenomenon, sparking an industry of collectables and conventions. Fans memorized large chunks of dialogue. Among the engineer's most repeated quotes: "The best diplomat that I know is a fully loaded phaser bank."
Mr. DOOHAN often failed to mask his antipathy for the star's hammy acting. The kindest praise he offers for Mr. SHATNER in his autobiography is a grudging acknowledgment that one episode's performance was "pretty okay."
The Scotty character was not often the focus of plot twists, although in an episode titled The Changeling, Bones leans over the engineer's body to deliver the shocking line, "He's dead, Jim."
Happily, the engineer is revived before hour's end.
In The Trouble with Tribbles, perhaps the best-loved of all episodes, Scotty disobeys captain's orders and precipitates a bar brawl with Klingons. The episode concludes on a pun ad-libbed by Mr. DOOHAN, after he dispatches a growing horde of furry creatures to a Klingon ship. "I transported the whole kit 'n' caboodle into their engine room," he tells the captain, "where they'll be no tribble at all."
Cancellation left Mr. DOOHAN unemployed and, he feared, unemployable. He complained of being typecast to his dentist, who said, "Jimmy, you're going to be Scotty long after you're dead. If I were you, I'd go with the flow."
He did so, reprising his role as Scotty in seven films. In Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, the engineer attempts to give voice commands to a 20th-century computer, including speaking into a mouse. Audiences roared with laughter.
After surviving a massive heart attack in 1989, Mr. DOOHAN seemed ever more frail. He deferred questions about the rumoured deterioration of his health by quipping: "If I had Alzheimer's I think I'd remember."
What would be his final public appearance came last August at a five-day event in Los Angeles billed as "Beam me up, Scotty one last time." He posed in his wheelchair in front of his star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
James DOOHAN was born on March 3, 1920, in Vancouver. He died on Wednesday at home in Redmond, Washington., a lakeside suburb 30 kilometres east of Seattle. Alzheimer's disease was one of many afflictions he suffered, including diabetes, lung fibrosis and Parkinson's. He was 85. He leaves his wife, Wende BRAUNBERGER, and their three children, Eric, Thomas and five-year-old Sarah. He also leaves four adult children -- Larkin, Deirdre and twins Montgomery and Christopher -- from his 15-year marriage to Janet YOUNG, which ended in divorce in 1964. A marriage to Anita YAGEL in 1970 ended in divorce two years later. Space Services Inc., a Houston-based company, will send his ashes into space, as he requested.
Toronto Trekkies will gather tonight at the Auld Spot Pub, 347 Danforth Ave., where fans can sign a condolence book to be presented later to the family.
2005-0-7-23 DAWSON, Nora -- Dispatch:
By Oliver MOORE, Saturday, July 23, 2005, Page M4
Wielding a chainsaw into her mid-80s and riding her bicycle around Toronto a few years after that, Nora Claire Elizabeth DAWSON was not one to sit still.
Relatives describe a woman who took hiking trips to the Alps, bought a computer at 85 so she could trade e-mail messages with a grand-nephew in Panama and insisted that her relatives have certain tools on hand, for when she came over.
"When she came to visit us, she'd get the pruning shears and work in the garden," said Dan Walker DAWSON, a nephew who lives in London, Ontario
Her niece, Georgie Dawson DOCKER, tells a similar story. "She would arrive here, aged 85 and up, with her chainsaw and loppers, and she'd be up on the ladder pruning whether you liked it or not," said Ms. DOCKER, who now lives in Dunnville, Ontario
She was physically vigorous and capable, her relatives say, but she was also a well-educated and intellectually active woman. She did The Globe and Mail's cryptic crossword every day until she was 90.
Ms. DAWSON graduated from the University of Western Ontario, in her hometown of London, at only 17 and went on to take a master's degree at Laval University. But when she submitted her work, they gave her a doctorate instead.
As a young woman she moved to Toronto to teach French. She lived in North Toronto and then North York as she moved through a succession of schools including Havergal College and East York Collegiate Institute. She was head of languages at King and Wexford Collegiate Institutes. She was also closely involved in the Women's Musical Club of Toronto, though she didn't play an instrument herself.
Ms. DAWSON did not marry. She died early last month at 92. She leaves two nephews, a niece, and six grand-nephews and grand-nieces.

Ewart REID, Economist (1910-2005)
Ottawa economist and idealist was Canada's presence at a United Nations agency founded to help feed the world's poorest people
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Monday, September 26, 2005, Page S8
Ottawa -- Ewart REID never forgot the misery of the Depression, when millions of Canadians struggled to survive amid horrendous unemployment and general despair. Dubbed the "Dirty Thirties," the decade profoundly marked Mr. REID for the rest of his life. It made him a life-long socialist, as well as developing a strong sense of social justice for the less fortunate that later took him around the world.
Mr. REID was one of many who were attracted to socialism during the 1930s, keenly interested in finding solutions to the world's overwhelming economic and social problems. Some thought the liberal democratic countries, such as the United States and Britain, were doing a poor job so new ideas should be given a chance. Rejecting capitalism, many idealists were seduced by Communism and became apologists for the crimes of Stalin's Soviet Union.
Studying economics at Montreal's McGill University from 1928-32, Mr. REID didn't become a communist, as some of his peers did. Instead, he became involved in the Student Christian Movement. It was an exciting time for Mr. REID. Besides working as the sports editor of the McGill Daily, he took an economics course taught by Stephen LEACOCK (who was better known as a humorist.) That was interesting, he told his son Malcolm decades later, but Mr. LEACOCK's students had to keep on their toes. "His remarks in class could sometimes slash pretty hard at us."
Mr. REID also got to know J.S. WOODSWORTH, the Methodist minister who became the first president of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. He was influenced, too, by the McGill teacher Carl DAWSON, who encouraged a social conscience in his students. During the summer of 1932, Mr. REID performed field research in various Doukhobor communities for Prof. DAWSON's 1936 book, Group Settlement, Ethnic Communities in Western Canada. Often criticized for their pacifism and rejection of secular government, the 7,400 Doukhobor settlers developed one of North America's largest and most complex undertakings in communal living. Among the communities Mr. REID visited were the Yorkton colony near Great Spirit Lake, and the Blaine Lake colony, both in Saskatchewan. He reported that the Doukhobors had not discarded the original communistic principles which they had elected to follow in Canada, but had supplemented them with farming and business practices learned since their arrival.
Mr. REID, who came from a comfortable middle-class background, also spent time in Montreal getting to know the "kings of the road," or hobos. That included nights in the Old Brewery Mission, a shelter for the homeless. It was an eye-opener, he told Malcolm REID. " They put the soap right on our heads when we went into the shower. It flowed down on us. It had to wash us."
He learned to respect the views of the footloose unemployed. "Once, I was sitting in the port of Montreal with grain elevators [nearby]. A guy came over and said, 'See those elevators? There's no food for us, but in those elevators there's enough food to feed everybody.' He was a hobo... or a hobo politician, I guess you could say."
After obtaining his master's degree in economics in 1938, Mr. REID was hired by the federal Department of Agriculture.
"He [became] an expert on the transportation of crops to market. He knew all about grain rates on the Canadian National Railway and the Canadian Pacific Railway. He testified at royal commissions on the rail system," said Malcolm REID. "He loved trains. My last trip with him was on a train."
After 27 years at the Department of Agriculture, Mr. REID went to work for the United Nations' World Food Program in 1965. The program, overseen by the United Nations's Food and Agriculture Organization, was founded in 1963 to organize the distribution of food to Third World countries (19 years earlier, in 1946, Mr. REID had been a member of the Canadian delegation when the Food and Agriculture Organization was founded in Quebec City, just a year after the birth of the United Nations in San Francisco).
Over the next 11 years, Mr. REID worked in Rome, New Delhi and Ankara. His job was to ensure that shiploads of wheat, beans, powdered milk and other foodstuffs arrived to feed workers building dams, roads, bridges and health centres. He also organized emergency food deliveries after natural disasters such as floods and mud slides.
Convincing wealthy countries to contribute wasn't easy at the beginning, Mr. REID said later. "We always (had) to fight to get them to pledge." By 1966, amounts on the order of $275-million were being pledged.
Co-ordinating the delivery and distribution of thousands of tons of food over the years was an enormous logistical task. "Whole ships were sometimes leased, and third-world fleets of ships were often used," said Malcolm REID.
Ewart REID, who believed strongly in international co-operation, liked to make that point from time to time to his sons: "It's one world, you know."
Ewart Percival REID was born on July 6, 1910, in Regina, Saskatchewan. He died on June 15 in Ottawa. He was 94. He leaves his sons, Ian and Malcolm, and his third wife, Seval UNAN of Turkey. He was predeceased by his brother, Howard, and his sisters Margaret and Eleanor.
