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.

Falling trees kill two in fierce storm
By Staff and News Services, Wed., July 19, 2006
A mother of three crushed by a tree as she slept next to her husband and children was one of two people killed in a vicious storm that knifed through Ontario and into Quebec late Monday, cutting power to about a quarter of a million people and causing tens of millions of dollars worth of damage, authorities said yesterday.
The fierce storm, which packed ferocious winds, lashing rain and intense lightning, smashed windows, barns and sheds, peeled off roofs, destroyed trees, closed highways and downed scores of hydro poles.
"It sounded just like a freight train," said Don COTTON of Manitoulin Island, where about 30,000 people were blacked out.
"(It) lasted for maybe two minutes and the noise stopped."
In Ontario, about 90,000 customers were still without power last night, down from 170,000 people in the morning.
About 70,000 Quebecers were in the same straits as of noon.
Hydro One spokesperson Daffyd RODERICK said power probably wouldn't be restored to the hardest-hit areas, such as Newmarket, Peterborough, Sudbury and North Bay, until tomorrow.
Amid the destruction and spotty phone service, the mayors of West Nipissing, Callander and Mattawa, about five hours north of Toronto, all declared states of emergency.
Farther east, at a conservation area near Peterborough in central Ontario, the intense fast-moving storm brought tragedy to a family of campers from Guelph.
As the storm approached the Warsaw Caves Conservation Area, Louise CLAYTON, 42, whisked her three children, aged eight, 10, and 12, from a tent they were in to sleep with her and her husband, John, in their soft-top tent trailer, said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Iain McEWAN.
"Some time around 11 o'clock, the husband said he was awakened by a loud bang and the canvas collapsed around him," said McEWAN.
"He called for his wife (and) he was unable to get a response."
Unable to find her, John CLAYTON rushed with the children to a nearby home to alert emergency officials, who found his wife crushed under an uprooted poplar tree.
Ontario Provincial Police also blamed the storm for the death of Jeff GRAY/GREY, 26, of Michigan, who was killed when a tree fell on his tent in Algonquin Provincial Park.
A second person in the tent, Aaron LEBOVICK, 19, also of Michigan, suffered serious injuries.
In Southwestern Ontario, some residents may be without power for another couple of days, Hydro One officials said.
In Perth County, police responded to 15 calls as a result of fallen trees and power lines blocking roads.
A car and a pickup truck struck trees on the road, leaving one driver with minor injuries.

Eerie storm scenario takes two lives
Death followed woman to second park
By Curtis RUSH, Staff Reporter with files from Canadian Press
Cristina CLAYTON and her family had left the Sandbanks Provincial Park near Picton, Ontario, when they learned a 4-month-old Orangeville boy had been struck by a fallen tree and killed on Sunday.
One day later, in a creepy and cruel twist of fate, the Guelph mother herself would be killed by a toppled tree at another provincial campsite, this one 30 minutes northeast of Peterborough.
The flash storm late Monday night swept through Greater Toronto and parts of southern Ontario, leaving destruction in its wake. In Callander and Mattawa, the storm was so destructive, the mayors declared states of emergency.
The coincidence of Cristina's death, one day after the baby's death under similar circumstances, wasn't lost on the CLAYTON family.
"They had just come from the site where the baby had been killed," said an incredulous family member Cheryl WILLIAMS through tears. "They were one week at Sandbanks. It was a devastating thing. You think camping is a safe activity, but with all these freak storms coming up, you just never know."
The CLAYTONs had been avid campers, travelling from their Guelph home every summer to give their three children a full camping experience at Ontario's provincial parks.
"They did everything together. Every year, they camped," WILLIAMS said.
On a two-week excursion, the CLAYTONs had camped for a week at Sandbanks Provincial Park and had set up their tents at the Warsaw Caves Conservation area, just north of the Village of Warsaw in Douro-Dummer Township.
That visit was tragically cut short Monday night when a violent thunderstorm whipped up just before 11 p.m. and toppled a massive tree onto the family's tent trailer, killing Cristina instantly.
She was one of two people killed by thunderstorms that lashed the province Monday night.
Ontario Provincial Police also blamed a tree felled by the storm for the death of Jeff GRAY/GREY, 26, of Michigan, who had been in a tent in Algonquin Provincial Park, south of Kiosk, Ontario
GRAY/GREY was director of Camp Kennedy, an adventure camp for young people who were on a canoe trip.
A second person in the tent, Aaron LEBOVICK, 19, also of Michigan, was airlifted with serious injuries to North Bay District Hospital and transferred to Saint Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
These kinds of accidents, like the one that killed the mother of three, are hard to prevent, the Ontario Provincial Police say.
"Someone asked me, 'How do you protect yourself from this?' and the truth is we can't recommend anything. It was really a freak," said Ontario Provincial Police Const. Iain McEWAN.
John, the victim's 42-year-old husband, had tried valiantly to save her life.
When the storm hit suddenly, it sent the tree crashing down on the tent trailer. John kicked out the back of the trailer to escape, pulling 9-year-old Jordan with him. He then crawled beneath the trailer to get 10-year-old Vanessa and 12-year-old Justine. He called out for Cristina, but got no response.
"He couldn't get her because the tree was on top of the trailer," said John's sister, Cheryl WILLIAMS.
Her distraught husband was able to say only that "I loved her very much," before breaking down in tears.
At one point, more than 170,000 residents across Ontario were without power yesterday throughout northern and central Ontario and east into western Quebec.
By late afternoon, 90,000 customers remained without power and Hydro One, responsible for transmission lines, was warning people that those in the hardest-hit areas, including North Bay, New Liskeard, Sudbury, Manitoulin Island, Peterborough and Newmarket, could be without power for three days due to the size of the storm path and the widespread damage.
High winds felled hundreds of trees, while lightning damaged hydro lines and poles.
"It's a tangled mess out there," said Daffyd RODERICK of Hydro One.
In York Region, the severe thunderstorm forced the closing of Woodbine Ave. between Davis Dr. and Green Lane in Newmarket because of a downed power line that fell across Woodbine Ave.
The damaged line was the primary cause for the power outage that struck the northern part of York Region late Monday and early Tuesday.
The Ontario Provincial Police also warned motorists the traffic lights at Highway 9 and Highway 400 northbound will be out for a few days.
Environment Canada's forecast says that more thunderstorm activity could return tomorrow, when the Toronto area could see temperatures near 31°C and rising humidity, too.

HELBIG, Marian
Mom left the stage suddenly on Tuesday, October 31, 2006 in the middle of a brilliant set. She was a singer, model, mother, grandmother extraordinaire, and passionate friend who leaves a devastating hole in our lives. We will miss her sense of humour, her style, her beauty and grace, and most of all her incredible warmth and devotion to her family. Mom would want us to remember her long years of cottage freeloading, berry picking and freestyle swimming, globetrotting with kindred spirits, and many nights of jazz to which she brought her inimitable zest and insouciance. We also remember the talented dressmaker, fabulous cook, and hostess who made each legendary Christmas party a destination. We will terribly miss watching the Leafs, doing crosswords and wonderful conversation with this proud Canadian and protoenvironmentalist. She survived in the face of lupus for over 45 years, and taught us to aspire to her noble example. We'll make certain her memory stays alive and bright in her grandchildren's lives. Marian will be deeply missed by her children Karla RODGERS, Avril HELBIG (and spouse Mike HANSEN,) Jason HELBIG and wife Cathy) and grandchildren Michelle, Sadie, Wilder, Greer and Bridget. She is also mourned by her extended family William McCULLOCK, Loretta McCULLOCK, Valida RAHAL, Walter McCULLOCK, Willa LEJOUR, Christina FINNEY and their families. She was predeceased by her loving husband Herbert HELBIG.
