Sid BARRON, Cartoonist (1917-2006)
A humorist who favoured gentle wit over biting satire, his richly drawn works were always worth a second look
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S8
Victoria -- Sid BARRON's cartoons demanded more than a glance and a guffaw.
His sly style lured readers into a lengthy examination of work rich in detail and wordy in execution. Diligent viewers would be well rewarded for their attention.
A typical Barron editorial cartoon included a scene that, at second glance, offered a cornucopia of visual puns, as well as such detritus as a cat holding a sign, or a biplane towing a banner.
These often included the two catchphrases that came to be associated with the artist -- "Mild, isn't it?" and "Aren't the mountains pretty today?"
He poked fun at local foibles for the Victoria Times and The Albertan of Calgary. As well, his cartoons appeared in the Toronto Star for more than a quarter century. He often took as his subject the residents of the vast suburban expanses surrounding downtown. He renamed Don Mills, where he had once made his home, as Dawn Mills, a quiet yet pretentious place where residents could not help but brag about the "exceptional quality" of their curbside trash.
His cartoons favoured gentle wit over biting satire. He did not usually take as his subject breaking news, or hapless politicians whose mistakes generated headlines. Instead, he found humour in the annoyances of everyday life. The critic Robert Fulford called him "the poet of the mundane."
In one cartoon, published by the Star in 1962, a disgruntled hockey fan watching his team on television has failed to notice his house burning down around him. A firefighter in the living room says, "Yeah, I'd have to go along on that… they're going to 'cheap penalty' themselves right out of the game."
The slice-of-life setting, the overheard dialogue, and the absurdity of the situation are typical of events in what came to be called Barronland. He described the setting of his cartoons as Anyplace, Canada.
Mr. BARRON shared the Star's editorial page with Duncan MacPHERSON, a brilliant caricaturist whose wit was as wicked as Mr. BARRON's was dry.
Mr. MacPHERSON skewered politicians with sometimes devastating results.
It is said the reputation of former prime minister John Diefenbaker never recovered from his portrayal as a rabbit-toothed Marie Antoinette, which reduced a statesman to a figure of ridicule.
The pair gave the Star an enviable tag team, although not all readers were enamoured of Mr. BARRON. One letter writer complained his works were "neither humorous nor meaningful but just nauseating." He had his defenders, too. " MacPHERSON's cartoons make us laugh at our leaders," another wrote, "but BARRON's make us laugh at ourselves."
Sidney Arnold BARRON was born in Toronto from a brief liaison between his young, unmarried mother and a Belgian officer billeted with his mother's family.
From birth, he was raised by his aunt and her husband, and grew up knowing his biological mother as Auntie Daisy. The woman he called his mother was his aunt, Florence. He would be an adult before learning the truth.
He moved with his adoptive family to Victoria at the age of 2.
A shy, skinny boy, the usual childhood miseries were made the worse by a spectacular stammer.
The impediment was so pronounced that in 1938 his father sent him to the National Hospital for Speech Disorders in New York. (The hospital was favoured by U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was on hand to open a new facility the following year.) In later years, the cartoonist liked to tell a story about his return home to an anxious family. As they gathered around, he announced, "I'm c-c-c-c-cured!"
In the late 1930s, he took art lessons from Allan Edwards, a precocious talent who was two years younger than Mr. BARRON and had followed him through South Park Elementary and Victoria High School.
Another Edwards student was Pierre Berton, an ambitious writer who also entertained a desire to be a cartoonist.
Mr. BARRON found work illustrating window cards for Victoria shops, and later painting billboards in Toronto.
When wartime restrictions halted the importation of American comic books, a Canadian industry was born overnight. Mr. BARRON found work as one of the freelancers in the stable of Educational Projects, a Montreal-based company whose bestselling title was Canadian Heroes. He was assigned to draw realistic depictions of historical events.
The Star Weekly magazine hired Mr. BARRON as a freelance illustrator, a lucrative gig that ended when the publication began purchasing syndicated works from American artists. He then spent much of the 1950s seeking work on the coast and in Ontario.
"During this period, it later became apparent, he developed a caustic assessment of the manners and moral values of his compatriots who populated the newer suburbs of Canada's expanding cities," Peter Desbarats wrote in The Hecklers, a 1979 history of Canadian political cartooning.
Mr. BARRON was hired as a cartoonist in 1958 by Victoria Times publisher Stuart Keate, who was eager for his afternoon daily to surpass the circulation of the morning rival, the Colonist. His works of gentle social commentary were entirely appropriate for the sleepy provincial capital. Three years later, Mr. BARRON began selling cartoons to the Star.
In 1962, Mr. BARRON moved to Calgary to work for The Albertan, all the while continuing with the Star as a client.
Few of his Toronto readers knew his cartoons were drawn from so far away. The humorist Gary LAUTENS described the circumstance for Star readers in 1964. " BARRON claims he is allergic to Toronto and every time he tries to live here (twice to date) he breaks out in airplane tickets and heads back for the foothills," he wrote.
Mr. BARRON worked in black ink and crayon on commercial board, applying bits of toned laminate. His characters were saddled with Everyman names such as Ralph or, especially, Harold. In one cartoon, two women are leaning over a backyard fence and one says to the other: "Harold's a small 'l' liberal… he doesn't know whether to vote Conservative, Liberal, New Democratic Party or Socred."
The "puddy tat," a cynical feline with ridiculous stripes, would appear in a lower corner holding a sign. Outdoor scenes would incorporate the biplane.
In 1983, editorial cartoonists met at convention in Toronto, gathering one evening in the C.N. Tower restaurant high above the city. Roy Peterson, of the Vancouver Sun, hired an airplane to fly past while towing a banner reading, "Mild, isn't it?"
Mr. BARRON was a gentle man of bohemian instinct, rarely lacking for female companionship, although a growing brood of children and stepchildren placed some limits on his romantic adventures. He met his third wife in Victoria in 1975 at what is now the Eric Martin Pavilion, where both were recuperating from breakdowns. Their union would last until Mr. BARRON's death.
He quit drawing cartoons in 1989, retiring to Coombs on Vancouver Island. He and his artist wife painted, Mr. BARRON indulging his passion for watercolour seascapes.
Several collections of his works were published over the years, including Barron's Victoria (1959), 2nd Annual Barron's Victoria (1960), Barron's Toronto (1965), Barron's Calgary Cartoons (1967), Barron Book (With Puddytat Centrefold) (1972), and The Best of Barron (1985). He also illustrated the Eric Nicol humour book, A Scar is Born (1968).
The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria held an exhibition of his works in 1973. Barron cartoons that once hung in the stairway home of British Columbia Premier W.A.C. Bennett are part of a travelling exhibit from the Kelowna Museum. The cartoons, also including works by Mr. Peterson, are currently on display at the Courtenay and District Museum on Vancouver Island.
The largest collection of his originals was gathered by the former National Archives in Ottawa, now Library and Archives Canada, which has 1,344 drawings. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary owns 70 originals published in The Albertan.
At a memorial service in Victoria, mourners were invited to speak about the deceased. Some did so by quoting from memory the captions to decades-old cartoons.
Sid BARRON was born on June 13, 1917, in Toronto. He died on April 29 at Mount Saint Mary Hospital in Victoria. He was 88. He leaves his third wife, Jessamine, known as Jesi; her daughter, Susan BARRON, and son David CONNOR; a daughter, Lisa MURRAY, from his first marriage; a son, Steven BARRON, and a daughter, Catherine McLEOD, from his second marriage; and, a sister, Florence HARTMAN. He also leaves eight grandchildren.

Danish-born electrician rowed for Canada
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S7
Victoria -- Leif GOTFREDSEN, a Danish-born sculler who competed at the 1964 Olympic Games for Canada, has died. He was 72.
Mr. GOTFREDSEN was a dominant athlete with the Argonaut rowing club of Toronto in the 1960s. He won singles and doubles events at the Dominion Day regattas at Toronto's Centre Island and at the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta at St. Catharines, Ontario
He was selected to represent Canada in single sculls at the Tokyo Olympics. However, his Olympic debut was a disaster. He finished fourth and last in his elimination heat with what would be the second-slowest time among 13 competitors. He also finished last in his repechage heat. In his final Olympic race, he performed well enough to finish eighth overall. He found greater success at the 1967 Pan American Games in Winnipeg, winning a silver medal in double sculls with Doug CLARK.
He continued to coach and compete in the sport until well into his sixth decade. "When it's going right, you feel you're in heaven," he told the San Francisco Chronicle in 2000 while competing at a masters competition at 66.
Mr. GOTFREDSEN was born on June 28, 1934, at Herning, Denmark. He died in Victoria two days after his 72nd birthday. He leaves his wife, Betty; son Erik; and daughter Signe.

George MARA, Hockey Player And Executive: (1921-2006)
Well-born amateur player who became the captain and key to Canada's gold-medal success at the 1948 Olympics later ran the Toronto Maple Leafs
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S7
Victoria -- In 1947, the Cold War was chilling Europe. The Royal Canadian Air Force desperately sought recruits. They needed skaters, not pilots. The Olympic hockey tournament was just weeks away. Canadian officials had balked at sending a team, a decision that outraged senior Royal Canadian Air Force medical officer Sandy Watson. He persuaded the officials and his superiors to allow him to recruit a team from scratch.
The Royal Canadian Air Force Flyers, as they were dubbed, were whipped in their first exhibition game by a lightly regarded varsity team. The air force feared being humiliated on the world stage. The call went out for reinforcements, and George MARA was asked to sign up.
Mr. MARA, who had just turned 26, was a Toronto businessman and a navy veteran. He moonlighted as a forward for the Barker's Biscuits team in an amateur league in Toronto. A hard-skating player known for shifty stickhandling, he had a touch with the puck.
Mr. MARA answered his country's call. In doing so, he would add to hockey lore.
George Edward MARA was the namesake son of a well-known Toronto sportsman. The elder Mr. MARA had been a star inside wing with the Argonauts football team until a broken ankle ended his playing days. He then became a shareholder in the Ontario Jockey Club, and he belonged to the Royal Canadian Yacht Club. His brothers were Bay Street stockbrokers. At one time, the family's liquor import business boasted the largest wine cellar in the Dominion, occupying almost an entire city block in downtown Toronto.
George Jr. grew up in privilege with a Cadillac in the garage and his own private rink in the backyard of the family home. He first won notice as a hockey player at Upper Canada College, where he was coached by retired Leafs star Gentleman Joe PRIMEAU. Mr. MARA led the prep-school circuit in 1939-40, recording 16 goals and five assists in six games. He scored two goals, including the winner, in a 6-1 victory over Saint Michael's to give his private school an undefeated season and its first hockey championship in more than 20 years.
He graduated to the Toronto Marlboros, where his skills attracted the attention of National Hockey League teams. The Detroit Red Wings' Jack Adams, who had him on the club's negotiating list, thought the prospect could find a starting role with the club in 1942. Instead, Mr. MARA joined the Royal Canadian Naval Volunteer Reserve.
He skated for a stellar navy team in the senior Ontario Hockey Association, served aboard a corvette and two minesweepers, and saw sea duty on the Newfoundland-Ireland run. He was promoted to lieutenant.
After the war, Mr. MARA attended the training camp of the Toronto Maple Leafs at Owen Sound, Ontario He turned down an offer to play for a minor-league team in the Leafs' system. He wound up, instead, on the roster of the Ontario Hockey Association's Toronto Staffords while tending to the family business, which had suffered with the death of his father on Christmas Day, 1942.
In January of 1946, the New York Rangers announced he had signed a contract. He was to play a game with the minor-league New York Rovers before joining the parent club. Mr. MARA suited up as a spare for a Rovers game against the Boston Olympics, but he never did join the Rangers, or play an National Hockey League game.
By the time the desperate Royal Canadian Air Force Flyers came looking for help, Mr. MARA was playing on the Barker's Biscuits team of the Toronto Hockey League. His recruitment happened after a chance meeting at Maple Leaf Gardens with prominent hockey official W.A. HEWITT, the father of hockey broadcaster Foster HEWITT. When Mr. MARA returned to his office, he found a message saying that Mr. HEWITT had called with an invitation to join the Olympic team. Mr. MARA balked, suggesting they try teammate Wally HALDER, a sales director for a chocolatier with whom he had also played in the navy during the war.
"I put the phone down and realized I was missing an exciting opportunity," he once told National Hockey League writer Mike Wyman. "So I called HEWITT back and said that I'd managed to make myself available."
When the Flyers goalie failed the physical, Mr. MARA suggested the Barker's goalie, Murray DOWEY, who would need a leave of absence from the Toronto Transit Commission.
The trio, with Mr. MARA as team captain, would be vital to a Canadian triumph.
The Olympic tournament, the first since the end of the Second World War, took place at a time when Europe was still suffering from the deprivations of war. The Canadian players were advised to pack their own bars of soap, as the item was still being rationed overseas.
The games were played on an outdoor rink in the winter playground of St. Moritz, Switzerland. The ice used for the skating surface, which was open to rain and snow, was poor. The rink had boards so low a skater could step over them as easily as climbing a sidewalk.
The Canadians struggled to adopt to rules forbidding hip checks, hitting near the boards, and playing the puck with a knee on the ice. As well, a player leaving the penalty box was expected to skate to his own blueline before returning to the play.
"They're not used to bodychecking there," Mr. MARA said on his return, "but how they hook and slash! We used to sizzle. Every game we played, we were determined not to get mad. Ten minutes after we'd start, we'd be boiling."
In one game, the incensed centre bowled over two opponents before poking another in the nose with his fist. A female fan tossed sand in his face and he was temporarily blinded. A teammate got hit by a snowball as he rushed the puck.
The Flyers cruised through most of the tournament, recording a 15-0 win over Poland before steamrolling over Italy 21-1. The team had six wins and a 0-0 tie with Czechoslovakia before meeting the Swiss in the gold-medal game before a partisan crowd. Canada won 3-0, as Mr. DOWEY recorded his fifth shutout in the tournament. The top scorers were Mr. HALDER (29 points) and Mr. MARA (17 goals and nine assists).
The trio rejoined the Barker's Biscuits team, but one can image that industrial-league hockey was less attractive after the excitement of the Olympics. Mr. MARA accepted the entreaties of Montreal Canadiens general manager Frank Selke. The centre was to play for the Montreal Royals before moving up to the parent Canadiens. He had collected eight points in seven games when an injury ended his season, as well as his playing career.
Stafford SMYTHE, the son of Conn SMYTHE, the owner of the Maple Leafs and Maple Leaf Gardens, invited Mr. MARA to join a committee to operate the hockey club and its namesake building in 1957. In 1961, Conn SMYTHE sold control of the team and eight years later, after a power struggle, Mr. MARA found himself elected president. He held the post for a year before resigning.
During his tenure in Leafs management, Mr. MARA was known to skate with the team at practice. He was also involved in one of the more famous incidents in club history. During the 1964 Stanley Cup finals, defenceman Bobby Baun suffered a broken leg. In the dressing room, Mr. MARA and coach Punch IMLACH got into an argument about whether he could return to play. Mr. MARA counselled caution for an athlete whose livelihood depended on his good health, while the coach profanely made the opposite case. As it turned out, Mr. Baun skated on the broken leg, scoring the winning goal in overtime of Game 6. The Leafs completed their comeback with a victory over Detroit two nights later to claim their third consecutive Stanley Cup.
Mr. MARA was long associated with the family firms and other industrial concerns, including the William Mara Company, founded in 1871, importers of wines and spirits, including such brands as Teacher's, Beefeater, and Hennessy, and Jannock Ltd., a diversified Toronto manufacturing company with operations in the sugar, brick, tubular steel and electrical products businesses. He also served on the boards of many charities.
Perhaps his greatest contribution to the nation's sporting history came not on the ice but in the boardroom. Mr. MARA was one of the founders and inaugural chairman of the Olympic Trust of Canada, launched in 1970 as the fundraising arm of the former Canadian Olympic Association (now Canadian Olympic Committee).
Mr. MARA was named a member of the Order of Canada in 1976 for his tireless work in raising funds to support Canadian Olympians competing at the 1972 Munich and 1976 Montreal Olympics. He was inducted into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame in 1989 as both an athlete and a builder, while Canada's Sports Hall of Fame enshrined him in 1993.
The Hockey Hall of Fame has in its collection Mr. MARA's captain's sweater from the Royal Canadian Air Force Flyers. So far, however, it has not seen fit to include him among the inductees.
George MARA was born on December 12, 1921, in Toronto. He died on August 30, 2006, while undergoing heart surgery. He was 84. He was predeceased by his wife, the former Margaret RODDICK, whom he married in 1947. He leaves a son and a daughter.

Ike HILDEBRAND, Athlete (1927-2006)
Pint-sized competitor may have been a world champion in hockey, but he happened to be an even better box lacrosse player
By Tom HAWTHORN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S9
Victoria -- Ike HILDEBRAND led a hockey team from small-town Ontario to the world championship tournament in 1959. A small, baby-faced athlete, he was a sparkplug on the ice and a general on the bench.
His greatest moment occurred as playing coach of the Belleville McFarlands. The Macs faced a gruelling schedule of exhibition matches across Europe before arriving in Czechoslovakia for the round-robin tournament in March of 1959.
A senior club team, the Canadians wore a maple leaf on the chest of their sweaters. They were defending on Canada's behalf the world title, won the previous winter by the Whitby Dunlops. Few hockey fans back home appreciated the difficulty of the task. The Czechs were no longer patsies, the Soviets were on the cusp of becoming the dominant force in hockey, and the Americans would show their skill by winning the Olympic tournament the next year. Anything but a championship for the Macs would have been regarded as failure.
The Canadians opened by defeating Poland 9-0, then shut out Finland 6-0 in a chippy game in which Mr. HILDEBRAND suffered a facial cut.
The next game featured the undefeated Soviet Union, seen as the only likely challengers. The Macs gained a 2-0 lead before Mr. HILDEBRAND scored what would be an insurance goal in Canada's 3-1 victory. The Macs mobbed their goaltender and celebrated for 10 minutes before the end-of-game ceremonies could begin. "They acted as if they had already won the title," the New York Times reported.
The Macs then defeated Sweden 5-0, before knocking off the United States 4-1. Mr. HILDEBRAND, one of five Macs with National Hockey League experience, scored in each of the games.
The only way the Macs could lose the title would be to lose to the hometown Czechs by a large margin. After exchanging gifts of Canadian cheese and Czech chocolate on the ice at Prague, the local side came out roaring, gaining a 2-0 lead in the first period. With the score 4-3 for the home side, the Canadian playing coach ordered his goalie off the ice in favour of an extra attacker. The move backfired. The Czechs won the game, 5-3, but Canada claimed the championship.
Surrounded by teammates on the ice, Mr. HILDEBRAND hoisted a trophy in the air while still wearing hockey gloves.
Back home, the accolades were restrained. The Toronto Star's story was headlined: Macs are champs, but… folks will recall loss to Czechs.
"We were meeting a club that was fresh," the coach explained to the paper's readers. "I still think we should have beaten Czechoslovakia, but I cannot begrudge the Czechs this win. They played well. We did not play a good game.
"It could be that the grind is beginning to catch up with us. In the last 20 weeks the McFarlands have played roughly 85 games and have barnstormed through Europe."
He spent another season with the Macs before being fired, an ignominious end to a solid career at a sport that was not even his best. For Mr. HILDEBRAND, a world champion in hockey, was perhaps the best box lacrosse player of his day.
Isaac Bruce HILDEBRAND was born in Winnipeg and raised near Grande Prairie, Alberta. He had never heard of lacrosse until he was 14 and his family moved to New Westminster, British Columbia, then, as now, a hotbed for the sport.
In 1943, the city's Salmonbellies won the Mann Cup as national champions with 16-year-old Ike on the roster. The 'Bellies again qualified for the Mann Cup playoff the next season.
Although they lost to the St. Catharines Athletics of Ontario, the teenaged phenomenon from New Westminster won the Mike Kelly Award as the most valuable player in the series. He remains the youngest person to have won the award.
The same teams met again in the 1946 Mann Cup, by which time the slick, 5-foot-7, 147-pound attacker found himself a target. "Little Ike HILDEBRAND, leading scorer in western competition, looked like a midget on the big [Maple Leaf] Gardens floor and he found the going rough and nasty," the Globe and Mail's Jim VIPOND reported in 1946. The Athletics again won the cup.
Mr. HILDEBRAND would score more than 900 goals and 700 assists in his lacrosse career, which saw him play in five Mann Cup series. He was named to league all-star teams 13 times in 15 seasons. He won scoring titles in 1946, 1948, 1954 and 1955, the last two coming while playing for the Peterborough Timbermen.
A talent in both of Canada's national sports, he played hockey in winter and lacrosse in summer.
He had two successful seasons with hockey's Oshawa Generals and another with the Toronto Marlboroughs, before being invited to training camp for the National Hockey League's Maple Leafs at Owen Sound. He practised during the day and then flew to Peterborough to play in the Mann Cup. The Leafs owner wanted the budding star to sign.
"Major Conn SMYTHE called me into his office and here's the deal he offered me -- $1,000 up front, $3,000 a year if I played in the minors at Tulsa, $4,000 if I went to Pittsburgh, and $5,000 if the Leafs kept me," Mr. HILDEBRAND once told Toronto Star columnist Jim PROUDFOOT. "I told him I'd have to talk it over with my mom and dad."
Instead, he telephoned Charlie CONACHER, the retired National Hockey League star who had been his coach at Oshawa. His advise was to ask for $1,000 on top of each of those figures. When Mr. HILDEBRAND did so, suggesting the higher salary came as parental advice, Mr. SMYTHE became furious. "You little so-and-so, have you been talking to CONACHER?"
Mr. HILDEBRAND wound up playing for the Los Angeles Monarchs and would spend five high-scoring seasons in the minors, all the while studying to become a structural engineer for a career he would later follow.
In 1954, he finally broke into the National Hockey League when the New York Rangers put him on a line with Don (Bones) Raleigh and Nick Mickoski, a fellow Winnipegger. He scored two goals and added three assists in his first five games.
Despite the terrific early success, Rangers coach Frank Boucher juggled lines, placing Mr. HILDEBRAND with rookie winger Billy Dea and centre Max Bentley. The goals stopped coming and the Rangers sold him to the minor-league Vancouver Canucks before being flipped to the National Hockey League's Chicago Black Hawks.
He soon rediscovered his scoring touch, but his season came to a sudden end after he broke a leg in a game in Toronto in February of 1954. He wound up with just seven goals and 11 assists in a 41-game National Hockey League career.
As a coach, he had success behind the bench at both lacrosse and hockey, as he handled junior and senior Ontario teams in Pembroke and Orillia. He led Belleville to an upset Allan Cup championship over the Kelowna Packers in 1958, earning nomination as Canada's representative to the world championship the next March.
In 1985, he was inducted into Canada's Sports Hall of Fame in Toronto. He had earlier been enshrined in the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame at New Westminster and the sports halls of fame in the Ontario cities of Peterborough, Belleville and Oshawa.
Even so, being a small man in a roughneck sport like lacrosse was not the most dangerous job Mr. HILDEBRAND ever held. As a young man in New Westminster, he painted bridges along the wind-swept Pacific Coast.
Ike HILDEBRAND was born on May 27, 1927, in Winnipeg. He died on August 27 in St. Albert, Alberta. He was 79. He leaves his wife Barbara, two sons, three daughters, four grandchildren, a sister and a brother.

HAWTON, Elsie
In memory of a dear mother Elsie HAWTON, always remembered, always loved.
"God saw you getting tired
When a cure was not to be
So He closed His arms around you
And whispered, "Come to Me"
In tears we saw you sinking
We watched you fade away
Our hearts were truly broken
You fought so hard to stay
But when we saw you sleeping
Peacefully and free from pain
We could not wish you back
To suffer that again
So keep Your arms around her, Lord
And give her special care
Make up for all she suffered
That seemed to us unfair
So many times we've needed you
So many times we ve cried
If love could have saved you
You never would have died"
