ON MARCH 20, 2012 GALT STAFF CONDUCTED AN INTERVIEW WITH ALLEN FRIESEN. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS BEEN EXTRACTED FROM A LONGER NARRATIVE. “I AM A TARGET SHOOTER AND THAT IS BASICALLY WHAT I DO FOR RECREATION, MORE SO. I DON’T REALLY COMPETE MUCH, NOW. I JUST BASICALLY DO IT FOR FUN MORE SO, AND ALSO DO SOME COACHING, AND I’VE DONE THAT FOR ABOUT 25 YEARS. YOU KNOW I JUST, IT’S JUST A LOT OF FUN TO DO, SHOOTING, AND IT IS A VERY ENJOYABLE SPORT. ONE OF THE ONES THAT WE DON’T HAVE IS THAT THERE IS NO REAL STRUCTURE FOR IT, THERE’S NO REAL NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR IT, LIKE IPSIC, WHICH IS A WORLDWIDE ASSOCIATION, BUT THERE IS NO REAL ASSOCIATION BUT OUR 3 GUN MATCHES. ON OUR RANGE THERE ARE THREE GUN MATCHES WHERE OUR COMPETITOR IN THE SAME STAGE USES RIFLE, HANDGUN AND SHOTGUN—AND THOSE ARE EXTREMELY ENJOYABLE. IT GETS YOUR BLOOD PUMPING, IT GETS VERY EXCITING AND AT THE END YOU’RE OUT OF BREATH, YOU BARELY DID ANYTHING, BUT YOU HAVE BEEN HOLDING YOUR BREATH WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN PRESSING THE TRIGGER, YOU HAVE BEEN RUNNING, YOU HAVE BEEN THINKING ABOUT WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN DOING, SO IT VERY MUCH ENGAGES YOU IN IT. SO IT’S A VERY ENGAGING SPORT, YOU CAN DO IT AT THE LEVEL THAT YOU WANT TO DO IT AT. PHYSICALLY IF YOU’RE NOT ABLE TO MOVE MUCH WELL THERE ARE SHOOTING SPORTS THAT YOU CAN DO, SET YOUR FIREARM ON THE TABLE AND DISCHARGE IT FROM THE TABLE AND YOU TRY AND SHOOT THE TIGHTEST GROUP POSSIBLE KIND OF THING. AND THAT’S GOOD, THAT’S A GREAT THING. OTHERS THAT ARE MORE ACTIVE CAN DO MORE, HAVE MORE OPTIONS IN TERMS OF THE SHOOTING SPORT. BUT THEY ARE LIFELONG SPORTS, THEY ARE THE SAFEST SPORT THERE IS AND I’M A BIG FAN. I THINK THAT IT IS GREAT. ” WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS TRAINING TO BECOME A COACH, FRIESEN RESPONDED BY SAYING, “BASICALLY JUST TAKING THE COURSES REQUIRED TO BE ABLE TO COMPETE, AND THEN JUST LOTS OF PRACTICE AND LEARNING BY GOING TO LOTS OF MATCHES AND LEARNING FROM OTHER COMPETITORS. FOR SHOOTING SPORTS, IT IS REALLY INTERESTING IN THAT THE COMPETITORS ARE QUITE WILLING TO GIVE YOU TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS IN TERMS OF MAKING YOU A BETTER SHOOTER. IT’S NOT LIKE OTHER SPORTS WHERE THEY ARE HOLDING THEIR SECRET WEAPON BACK. THEY ARE GOING TO SAY, HEY HAVE YOU EVER TRIED THIS, YOU SHOULD GIVE THAT A GO. ANYWAY, IT’S A MUCH MORE OF AN OPEN TYPE OF SPORTY IN THAT REGARD.” WHEN ASKED HOW A COACH MIGHT MOTIVATE A COMPETITOR FRIESEN SAID, “YOU KNOW I’M NOT REALLY SO MUCH TRYING TO GET THEM TO ENTER A COMPETITION. MY BIG GOAL IS THAT THEY BE SAFE FIRST OF ALL. SO THEY ARE SAFE, THAT’S OUR PRIMARY CONCERN. ONCE THEY ARE DOING THINGS SAFELY, THEN I WANT THEM TO HAVE SOME FUN DOING IT. THEN, IF THEY WANT TO COMPETE, THEN I WILL ENCOURAGE THEM TO COMPETE AND ASSIST THEM WITH THAT. THAT’S OUR PRIORITY, SAFETY FIRST, THEN FUN, THEN COMPETE IF THEY WISH TO DO THAT. SOME PEOPLE, WITH THE SHOOTING SPORTS, IT’S AN ACTIVITY WHICH YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE INVOLVED OR GO TO COMPETITIONS IF YOU DON’T WISH TO. SO IT’S A LIFELONG TYPE OF ACTIVITY. IT’S THE SAFEST SPORT THERE IS, SO THOSE ARE THE THINGS THAT REALLY APPEAL TO ME ABOUT IT. SO, THE COMPETITIONS, IF THEY WISH TO THAT FINE, IF THEY DON’T, THEN I TEACH THEM THE FUNDAMENTALS, SO THAT THEY CAN BE SAFE AND HAVE FUN DOING IT, THEN I’M HAPPY WITH THAT. WE HAVE SOME BASIC TYPE OF INSTRUCTION THAT WE DO. WE HAVE A CHECKLIST THAT WE FOLLOW, THAT THEY HAVE THE RIGHT ABILITIES AND SKILLS TO ENGAGE SAFELY. BUT AFTER THAT THERE IS A COURSE CALLED THE BLACK BADGE COURSE, AND THIS IS SPECIFICALLY FOR INTERNATIONAL PRACTICAL SHOOTING CONFEDERATION. SO THE BLACK BADGE COURSE IS ONE SPECIFICALLY FOR THAT SPORT. IT FOCUSES ON THE RULES OF THAT SPORT. IT’S A REQUIREMENT TO COMPLETE THAT COURSE AND SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE A MATCH AFTER THAT COURSE IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN MATCHES. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A BLACK BADGE IN ORDER TO COMPETE IN THEIR MATCHES. [THROUGH COACHING, I’VE HAD] A LOT OF OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK WITH A LOT OF YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE VERY MUCH ENTHUSED ABOUT DOING WHAT THEY ARE DOING AND THEIR PARENTS. THAT’S THE KIND OF A REQUIREMENT THAT WE HAVE. WE HAVE FOR OUR JUNIOR LEAGUE, THAT’S FOR OUR YOUTH, WE REQUIRE THAT THE ADULTS ALSO COME TO, AT LEAST THAT AN ADULT BE ON SITE WITH THEIR CHILDREN. SO IT’S JUST ENJOYABLE TO SHARE THE SPORT, TO LET OTHER PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT IT. ON FIRST BLUSH, IT LOOKS KIND OF UNUSUAL. I REMEMBER WHEN I WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO SHOOTING SPORTS, I HAD A FRIEND WHO TOLD ME ABOUT IT AND I SAID ‘OH MAN, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A WHOLE BUNCH OF MACHO BULLSHIT, I DON’T THINK I’M INTERESTED, BUT I SAID O.K., I’LL COME OUT AND TRY IT. IT’S JUST VERY ENJOYABLE. I CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY IT’S SO ENJOYABLE, BUT IT IS. THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE, IN TERMS OF RECOIL, THE SMOKE, AND THE NOISE, IT’S JUST A LOT OF FUN TO DO. [AS A VOLUNTEER COACH] I THINK THAT VOLUNTEERING IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. IT’S EXTREMELY GRATIFYING. I MEAN, YOU’RE MOTIVATION ISN’T TO DO IT BECAUSE YOU’RE GETTING PAID. I GET PAID DOING OTHER THINGS THAT’S A SATISFACTORY COMPENSATION FOR ME. I DON’T NEED MONEY FOR EVERYTHING THAT I DO, SO A CHUNK OF TIME THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE, I VOLUNTEER, AND I ENJOY DOING IT. [WORKING WITH PARENTS AND KIDS IN] THE SHOOTING SPORTS, [IS] DEFINITELY [ENJOYABLE]. YES IT IS, IT IS GOOD BECAUSE THE PARENTS, WE’RE ALL ON THE SAME PAGE. WE WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO DO IT SAFELY, AND THE PARENTS ARE CERTAINLY ON THE SAME SIDE IN TERMS OF THAT I MIGHT BE VERY ADAMANT WITH THE PARTICIPANT ABOUT KEEPING THEIR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER FOR AN EXAMPLE, AND I MIGHT HEAR THE PARENT SAYING THE SAME THING ‘OH, HEY, KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THAT TRIGGER’. I’LL SAY IT AND THE PARENT WILL JUMP IN AS WELL, SO THEY’RE ON THE SAME PAGE IN TERMS OF DOING IT. [THERE IS] CERTAINLY [A LOT OF RESPECT BETWEEN THE PARENTS AND THE COACH] AND THEY UNDERSTAND THE REASONS WHY THAT I MIGHT BE STRESSING POINTS BECAUSE THERE IS A SAFETY ISSUE. IF IT’S DONE SAFELY, IT’S A SPORT YOU CAN DO FOREVER, BUT IT HAS TO BE DONE SAFELY OR OF COURSE THERE IS SOME INHERENT DANGER IN IT.” WHEN ASKED ABOUT PRESSURES THAT MAY EXIST WITHIN THE SPORT, FRIESEN RELATED, “FOR THE COMPETITORS THERE IS FOR SURE IS. NO QUESTION. FOR ME, I’M COACHING, I TELL THEM THE RIGHT THINGS TO DO, AND IF THEY DO IT, THEN THAT’S O.K. AND IF THEY DO IT, THERE REALLY ISN’T MUCH PRESSURE, BUT THE PRESSURE CERTAINLY IS THERE. I MEAN ANY COMPETITION HAS PRESSURE INVOLVED WITH IT. THAT’S WHAT UPS THE ANTE ON IT, THAT’S WHAT MAKES IT IMPORTANT.” RESPONDING TO A QUESTION ABOUT WHAT HAS KEPT HIM INVOLVED FOR SO MANY YEARS, FRIESEN ANSWERED, “I ENJOY IT STILL, IT’S SOMETHING I CAN DO AND CAN ADD VALUE. IT’S STILL SOMETHING THAT IS AN EXCITING THING TO BE INVOLVED IN, SO YEAH. I’VE HAD SOME EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD DAYS WHERE I DID EXTREMELY WELL, AND ONE OF THOSE I WON THIS BIG HONKING ROBERT BATEMAN PRINT KIND OF A THING BECAUSE I WON MY CATEGORY AND THAT’S STILL SOMETHING THAT I HAVE AS A MEMENTO. AND I STILL HAVE SOME TARGETS THAT I FIRED THAT WERE EXTREMELY GOOD, YOU KNOW THEY’RE STICKING UP IN MY GARAGE AND I GIVE THOSE A LOOK ONCE IN AWHILE. AS AN ATHLETE, I GUESS, THOSE KINDS OF THINGS. AS A COACH, SOME GRATIFICATION WHEN YOU HAVE, SOME GENTLEMAN I JUST MENTIONED THAT IS A SPONSORED SHOOTER NOW, WELL THAT’S REALLY GRATIFYING. WE’VE HAD LOTS OF KIDS IN 4-H GROUPS, WELL THEY WEREN’T THERE FOR ANY COMPETITIVE PURPOSES, THEY WERE THERE TO LEARN THE SAFETY ASPECTS. AND SO NOW THEY COME BACK AND THEY ARE ADULTS NOW, AND THEY ARE SAYING “HOW CAN I, DO YOU NEED ME TO HELP, DO YOU NEED SOME VOLUNTEERS?” I MEAN THAT’S GREAT, THAT’S KEEPING IT MOVING KIND OF THING. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO WERE MY MENTORS, MY COACHES, PEOPLE WHO HELPED ME WHEN I WAS YOUNGER. THOSE FOLKS ARE GOING ON TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE, SO IT’S A GREAT CYCLE.” RECALLING SOME OF THE CHALLENGES TO BEING A COACH AND SHOOTER, FRIESEN SAID, “SHOOTING SPORTS ARE VERY UNUSUAL IN THAT THE BASICS ARE VERY EASY TO MASTER, THEN ALL IT IS THAT YOU HAVE TO SHUT UP, STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND JUST DO IT. IF YOU OVER THINK IT, THAT’S WHEN THINGS GO AWRY. SO, IF YOU KIND OF HAVE A PLAN, YOU KNOW THE BASICS, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO DO, AND THEN AFTER THAT, AT THE POINT WHEN YOU ARE ACTUALLY ENGAGED IN IT, WHEN THE BUZZER BLOWS AND YOU BEGIN TO ENGAGE IN THOSE TARGETS, YOU DON’T THINK ABOUT IT. YOU HAD THE PLAN BEFORE, YOU KEEP YOUR MIND QUIET AND DO WHAT YOU’VE GOT TO DO AND THAT KIND OF THING, AND IT WORKS REALLY WELL. WHERE IT’S CHALLENGING IS WHEN YOU START TALKING TO YOURSELF TOO MUCH WHEN YOU’RE SHOOTING, THEN THE WHEELS FALL OFF IN A HURRY. [S]HOOTING IS THE SAFEST SPORT THERE IS. I MEAN I CUT MY FINGER ONCE, MINOR THINGS LIKE THAT, BUT SHOOTING IS THE SAFEST SPORT THERE IS. WHEN ASKED TO DESCRIBE THE EXPERIENCE OF SHOOTING, FRIESEN RECALLED, “HERE’S ONE OF THE STAGES FROM A 3 GUN MATCH THAT WE HAD THAT I RECALL. BASICALLY YOU START IT OFF IN A LITTLE CARD WE HAD IT ON AN INCLINE, THEN ON THE BUZZER, THEY HAVE CHECKED YOU ALL OVER AND MADE SURE YOU ARE READY TO GO, AND YOU KNOW WHAT THE COURSE OF FIRE IS. SO THERE IS A RANGE OFFICER THAT IS WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES. AND THAT PERSON WOULD SAY ‘DO YOU KNOW THE COURSE OF FIRE AND IF YOU DO, LOAD AND MAKE READY’ SO YOU LOAD AND MAKE READY, AND YOU HAVE YOUR SHOTGUN ON THIS LITTLE CART THAT YOU ARE IN AND YOU HAVE YOUR PISTOL LOADED IN YOUR HOLSTER AND YOU HAVE YOUR RIFLE STAGE FURTHER DOWN RANGE. SO THEN IT WOULD BE ON THE BUZZER YOU HIT THIS RELEASE AND THE CART STARTS ROLLING DOWN THE RAMP AND AS AS IT DOES, THERE IS THESE CLAY PIGEONS THAT ARE ALL THE WAY DOWN THE SIDES AND YOU HAVE TO SHOOT AT THE CLAY PIGEONS ON EITHER SIDE AND GET OUT , EXIT THE CART, AND THEN THERE ARE SOME OTHER PIECES OF STEEL THAT YOU HAVE TO SHOOT WITH YOUR SHOTGUN AND THEN THE LAST ONE THAT YOU SHOOT TRIGGERS A BIRD THROWER, A CLAY PIGEON THROWER, AND IT FLINGS A BIRD UP IN THE AIR, AND YOU HAVE TO HIT THAT WHEN ITS GOING, AND THEN YOU HAVE TO UNLOAD AND SHOW THAT YOUR FIREARM IS CLEAR. THEN YOU MOVE TO THE NEXT STAGE WHERE YOU GRAB YOUR PISTOL THERE IS A BUNCH OF PAPER TARGETS, IT’S CALLED THE COOPER TUNNEL, A TUNNEL THAT YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH SO YOU HAVE TO CROUCH DOWN OR GO ON YOUR KNEES AND YOU HAVE TO SHOOT THROUGH LITTLE PORTS THAT YOU HAVE TO SHOOT THROUGH, AND SHOOT THROUGH THERE, AND THIS SIDE YOU HAVE TO SHOOT THROUGH. SO YOU GO THROUGH THIS WHOLE PROCESS THAT WAY, THEN WHEN YOU EXIT THERE ARE STILL A COUPLE TARGETS STILL FOR PISTOL AT THE END. THEN YOU HAVE TO UNLOAD, LOCK THE ACTION OF YOUR PISTOL, SET YOUR PISTOL DOWN AND A RANGE OFFICER SEES THAT YOU ARE ALL CLEAR AND THEN YOU GO TO YOUR RIFLE THAT WAS STAGED THERE. AND THEN THERE ARE SOME TARGETS AND THOSE TARGETS, ACTUALLY WE HAD THEM ON A BIANCHE MOVER, THAT IS ACTUALLY A PLATFORM THAT IS ON A CHAIN DRIVE THAT MOVES THE TARGETS ACROSS. AS ITS MOVING YOU HAVE TO GO AND FIRE AT THEM WITH YOUR RIFLE TO HIT THESE PIECES OF PAPER AS THEY ARE MOVING ACROSS IN FRONT OF YOU. THAT DOESN’T SOUND LIKE A BUNCH OF PHYSICAL STUFF, BUT YOU ARE JUST PUFFING AT THE END. AND IF YOU DO IT WELL, IT TAKES 35 SECONDS, SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IT’S ALL MEASURED IN THE HITS AND THE TIME. THOSE ARE THE TWO THINGS. SOME PEOPLE, LIKE RYAN I WAS TALKING ABOUT WHO IS ON THIS NATIONAL TEAM, MAN HE’S LIKE HALF MY TIME, ALL THE TIME. IF I CAN EVEN DOUBLE HIS TIME, I’M PLEASED WITH THAT. SO THE ONLY THING I GET LUCKY WITH IS IF MY ACCURACY IS BETTER THAN HIS. BUT HE IS ACCURATE AND HE IS FAST AND THAT’S DIFFICULT. ANYWAY, THAT’S WHAT A 3-GUN STAGE IS LIKE. FUN STUFF. [G]OING OUT ON NORMAL PRACTICE IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT, LIKE FOR THE SHOTGUN SHOOTERS, THEY’LL JUST HAVE A BIRD THROWER AND THEY WILL JUST KEEP FOLLOWING THE BIRD, PRESSING THE TRIGGER AND FOLLOWING THE BIRD. FOR THE RIFLE SHOOTERS, TYPICALLY, THEY JUST WANT TO SHOOT THE TIGHTEST GROUP POSSIBLE. THAT MEANS THAT BASICALLY WHEN YOU FIRE, THE PROJECTILES END UP IN A SMALL AREA ALTOGETHER, OR IF PREFERRED, TOUCHING. THE PEOPLE WHO DO IT, THEY’LL SHOOT TARGETS AT 100,200 AND 300 YARDS. SO NOW FOR ME, I’M NOT A BIG CENTRE FIRE RIFLE SHOOTER, BUT I’M NOT BAD AT IT, WITH GOOD EQUIPMENT, I CAN SHOOT MAYBE A 5-INCH GROUP AT MAYBE 100 YARDS. SO 5 SHOTS AT 300 YARDS ARE ALL WITHIN THAT 5-INCH DIAMETER. THE PEOPLE THAT ARE REALLY GOOD CAN SHOOT 5 SHOTS AT 300 YARDS AND CAN PUT THEM IN A MUCH TIGHTER AREA, SO THEY WOULD OBVIOUSLY WIN THAT COMPETITION OVER ME. IT’S VERY CONTROLLED, VERY METHODICAL. THEY WILL BE MONITORING THEIR BREATHING, THEY HAVE A SYSTEM FOR IT, THEY WILL DO LIKE “NOW I’LL TAKE 7 BREATHS AND AS I STOP, PRESS THE TRIGGER AND THEN GET PREPARED FOR THE NEXT ONE”. SOME OF THEM VERY MUCH HAVE A SYSTEM TOO THAT IS VERY METHODICAL AND OTHERS, HANDGUN SHOOTING—WHICH IS WHAT I DO MOSTLY, IT’S MOSTLY DRILLS- DRILLS IN TERMS OF DRAW, SHOOT, RELOAD. IT’S ALL IN TERMS OF FUNCTIONALITY AND RELOADING, AND BEING SAFE WITH THE DRAW AND GETTING THE HIT AS QUICK AS YOU CAN. THE PEOPLE THAT CAN DO IT DRAW AND HIT THE TARGET IN UNDER A SECOND. I’M PROBABLY 1.3 SECONDS, COMMONLY. THAT’S NOT MUCH DIFFERENCE, BIT IN ALL SPORTS IT’S LIKE THAT—A VERY SMALL TIME DIFFERENCE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FIRST AND FIFTH PLACE.” FOR MORE INFORMATION, INCLUDING INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, PLEASE SEE PERMANENT FILE.

EVERAL HORHOZER (NÉE SUPINA) WAS BORN IN LETHBRIDGE IN THE YEAR OF 1927 TO HER PARENTS DONAH (NÉE HILL) AND NICHOLAS SUPINA. SUPINA WAS THE OWNER OF SUPINA’S MERCANTILE ON 13TH STREET NORTH, LETHBRIDGE. THIS DRESS SHIRT WAS PART OF THE STAGE OUTFIT WORN BY JOE HORHOZER WHEN HE WAS THE ACCORDION PLAYER AND MUSIC ARRANGER FOR A WELL-KNOWN LETHBRIDGE MUSICAL GROUP CALLED THE ALBERTA RANCH BOYS. THE GROUP FORMED IN THE SUMMER OF 1937 WITH MEMBERS LOUIS (LOU) GONZY, MATT (BUCK) WASOWICH, PETER (CURLY) GURLOCK, REMO BACEDA, AND ‘LITTLE JOE’ HORHOZER. COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN CONDUCTED A SERIES OF INTERVIEWS (ON APRIL 2, APRIL 16, AND MAY 7, 2015) WITH HORHOZER REGARDING A GROUP OF ARTIFACTS SHE DONATED TO THE MUSEUM. THE INFORMATION BELOW HAS COME FROM THESE INTERVIEWS AND LETHBRIDGE HERALD RESEARCH REGARDING THE HORHOZER FAMILY HISTORY. IN THE INTERVIEW, HORHOZER DESCRIBED HOW SHE MET HER HUSBAND, JOE HORHOZER, WHEN HE CAME TO WORK FOR SUPINA’S MERCANTILE. FOR THE STORY OF HOW THEY MET, PLEASE SEE RECORDS P20150016003 AND P20150016004. JOE HORHOZER WAS THE ACCORDION PLAYER AND MUSIC ARRANGER FOR A WELL-KNOWN LETHBRIDGE MUSICAL GROUP CALLED THE ALBERTA RANCH BOYS. THE GROUP FORMED IN THE SUMMER OF 1937 WITH MEMBERS LOUIS (LOU) GONZY, MATT (BUCK) WASOWICH, PETER (CURLY) GURLOCK, REMO BACEDA, AND ‘LITTLE JOE’ HORHOZER. HORHOZER SAYS OF HER HUSBAND: “I WOULD CALL HIM THE LEAD INSTRUMENT BECAUSE AN ACCORDION IS, EH? AND HE WAS EXCEPTIONALLY GIFTED WITH THE ACCORDION; THAT’S WHAT EVERYBODY SAID, THAT THERE ISN’T ANYONE, AT LEAST AROUND THIS COUNTRY, THAT COULD COMPARE WITH HIM.” DESCRIBED IN THEIR SOUVENIR BOOK PUBLISHED IN 1941 AS “PROFESSIONAL RADIO ENTERTAINERS”, THE ‘ALBERTA RANCH BOYS’ WERE FORMED WHEN THE LOCAL EXHIBITION AND STAMPEDE PARADE WAS FOUND WANTING FOR A “COWBOY BAND” AS PART OF ITS LINEUP. ACCOLADES FOR THE PARADE ACT FOLLOWED, INSPIRING THE GROUP “TO EMBARK ON THE LONG ROAD TO FAME AND FORTUNE”. IN A YEAR’S TIME – AND AFTER TOURING THROUGH ALBERTA AND BC – THE BAND ENDED UP IN VANCOUVER. THERE, IT ESTABLISHED ITSELF, ACCORDING TO THE BOOKLET, AS “WESTERN CANADA’S MOST VERSATILE STAGE AND DANCE FAVOURITE,” BROADCASTING ITS COWBOY MELODIES FOR OVER TWO CONTINUOUS YEARS VIA CKWX (VANCOUVER’S LARGEST RADIO STUDIO AT THE TIME). DURING THE WAR, IT DONATED ITS TALENTS TO THE PROMOTION OF WAR SAVINGS CERTIFICATES. ONE VICTORY RALLY SONG FOR STAMPS WAS “WE’VE BOUGHT THEM BEFORE AND WE’LL BUY THEM AGAIN.” BY EARLY JAN-FEB 1943, THE BAND HAD PEAKED. ONE MEMBER IS REPORTED TO HAVE ENLISTED IN THE CANADIAN ARMY WHILE OTHERS, ACCORDING TO THE DONOR, “GOT SICK”. “THEY DID A LOT IN TORONTO.” RECALLED EVERAL IN AN INTERVIEW. “[IT WAS FROM] TORONTO THEN THEY COULD HAVE GONE [TO NEW YORK] - THAT’S WHERE THEY WERE OFFERED THE BIG JOB OF RECORDING AND BEING ON TV…BUT THEN [JOE] SAYS THAT HE DOESN’T CARE, BECAUSE HE SAYS IF HE WOULD HAVE WENT, HE WOULDN’T HAVE MET ME, SO, I MEAN, THAT WAS A NICE THING TO SAY. HE SAYS LIFE TURNED OUT GOOD FOR HIM.” EVERAL WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS AT THE TIME OF THEIR MEETING. AFTER FINDING OUT, SHE SAID, “WELL, I THOUGHT, GEE WHIZ, HE JUST ISN’T AN EVERYDAY JOE AND EVERYBODY IN TOWN KNEW HIM AND ADMIRED HIM. YEAH, IT MADE ME A LITTLE MORE HAPPY.” OF THE PERFORMANCE COSTUME EVERAL HORHOZER SAID: “THEY WORE [THE SAME UNIFORM] WHEN THEY PLAYED AT THE TRIANON FOR A WHILE AND THEY JUST STARTED TO USE SUITS … WELL HE DIDN’T WANT - SEE, WHEN THEY STARTED PLAYING AT THE TRIANON. THEN I TELL YOU, THEY START WEARING MORE BAND [CLOTHING] - LIKE, THEY HAD DIFFERENT BLAZERS, COLOURED BLAZERS – BLUE ONES AND RED ONES AND ALL WORE BLAZERS THEN. ‘CAUSE THEY WANTED TO BECOME LIKE A DANCE BAND, I GUESS YOU’D SAY.” “HE WOULD NEVER FORGET THAT TIME [WITH THE RANCH BOYS],” HORHOZER SAID OF HER HUSBAND, “HE TALKED ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME. HOW THEY MET SO MANY [PEOPLE], LIKE THEY’D PLAY AT PRIVATE PARTIES FOR WEALTHY PEOPLE. HE ABSOLUTELY LOVED HIS MUSIC. HE LIVED FOR HIS MUSIC.” BACK HERE IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1958, EVERAL’S HUSBAND JOE WENT ON TO PERFORM WITH THE COUNTRY CAPERS, PLAYING ACCORDION FOR A WEEKLY BROADCAST VIA THE LOCAL TV STATION CJLH. IN 1961, THE STATION AND THE BROADCAST WERE PRESENTED WITH A NATIONAL LIBERTY AWARD FOR “TV STATION SHOWMANSHIP” AND “BEST LOCAL PROGRAMMING.” IN HIS TIME, ‘LITTLE JOE’ PLAYED WITH ROY ROGERS, GENE AUTRY, AND TOMMY HUNTER. HE DIED IN 2010 AT AGE 89. EVERAL HORHOZER PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE 6 YEARS LATER ON JUNE 6, 2016 AT THE AGE OF 88 YEARS. PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION INCLUDING FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTS, LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES, AND FURTHER PUBLICATIONS.

AND HE WAS EXCEPTIONALLY GIFTED WITH THE ACCORDION; THAT’S WHAT EVERYBODY SAID, THAT THERE ISN’T ANYONE, AT LEAST AROUND THIS COUNTRY, THAT COULD COMPARE WITH HIM.” DESCRIBED IN THEIR SOUVENIR BOOK PUBLISHED IN 1941 AS “PROFESSIONAL RADIO ENTERTAINERS”, THE ‘ALBERTA RANCH BOYS’ WERE FORMED WHEN THE LOCAL EXHIBITION AND STAMPEDE PARADE WAS FOUND WANTING FOR A “COWBOY BAND” AS PART OF ITS LINEUP. ACCOLADES FOR THE PARADE ACT FOLLOWED, INSPIRING THE GROUP “TO EMBARK ON THE LONG ROAD TO FAME AND FORTUNE”. IN A YEAR’S TIME – AND AFTER TOURING THROUGH ALBERTA AND BC – THE BAND ENDED UP IN VANCOUVER. THERE, IT ESTABLISHED ITSELF, ACCORDING TO THE BOOKLET, AS “WESTERN CANADA’S MOST VERSATILE STAGE AND DANCE FAVOURITE,” BROADCASTING ITS COWBOY MELODIES FOR OVER TWO CONTINUOUS YEARS VIA CKWX (VANCOUVER’S LARGEST RADIO STUDIO AT THE TIME). DURING THE WAR, IT DONATED ITS TALENTS TO THE PROMOTION OF WAR SAVINGS CERTIFICATES. ONE VICTORY RALLY SONG FOR STAMPS WAS “WE’VE BOUGHT THEM BEFORE AND WE’LL BUY THEM AGAIN.” BY EARLY JAN-FEB 1943, THE BAND HAD PEAKED. ONE MEMBER IS REPORTED TO HAVE ENLISTED IN THE CANADIAN ARMY WHILE OTHERS, ACCORDING TO THE DONOR, “GOT SICK”. “THEY DID A LOT IN TORONTO.” RECALLED EVERAL IN AN INTERVIEW. “[IT WAS FROM] TORONTO THEN THEY COULD HAVE GONE [TO NEW YORK] - THAT’S WHERE THEY WERE OFFERED THE BIG JOB OF RECORDING AND BEING ON TV…BUT THEN [JOE] SAYS THAT HE DOESN’T CARE, BECAUSE HE SAYS IF HE WOULD HAVE WENT, HE WOULDN’T HAVE MET ME, SO, I MEAN, THAT WAS A NICE THING TO SAY. HE SAYS LIFE TURNED OUT GOOD FOR HIM.” EVERAL WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS AT THE TIME OF THEIR MEETING. AFTER FINDING OUT, SHE SAID, “WELL, I THOUGHT, GEE WHIZ, HE JUST ISN’T AN EVERYDAY JOE AND EVERYBODY IN TOWN KNEW HIM AND ADMIRED HIM. YEAH, IT MADE ME A LITTLE MORE HAPPY.” OF THE PERFORMANCE COSTUME EVERAL HORHOZER SAID: “THEY WORE [THE SAME UNIFORM] WHEN THEY PLAYED AT THE TRIANON FOR A WHILE AND THEY JUST STARTED TO USE SUITS … WELL HE DIDN’T WANT - SEE, WHEN THEY STARTED PLAYING AT THE TRIANON. THEN I TELL YOU, THEY START WEARING MORE BAND [CLOTHING] - LIKE, THEY HAD DIFFERENT BLAZERS, COLOURED BLAZERS – BLUE ONES AND RED ONES AND ALL WORE BLAZERS THEN. ‘CAUSE THEY WANTED TO BECOME LIKE A DANCE BAND, I GUESS YOU’D SAY.” “HE WOULD NEVER FORGET THAT TIME [WITH THE RANCH BOYS],” HORHOZER SAID OF HER HUSBAND, “HE TALKED ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME. HOW THEY MET SO MANY [PEOPLE], LIKE THEY’D PLAY AT PRIVATE PARTIES FOR WEALTHY PEOPLE. HE ABSOLUTELY LOVED HIS MUSIC. HE LIVED FOR HIS MUSIC.” BACK HERE IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1958, EVERAL’S HUSBAND JOE WENT ON TO PERFORM WITH THE COUNTRY CAPERS, PLAYING ACCORDION FOR A WEEKLY BROADCAST VIA THE LOCAL TV STATION CJLH. IN 1961, THE STATION AND THE BROADCAST WERE PRESENTED WITH A NATIONAL LIBERTY AWARD FOR “TV STATION SHOWMANSHIP” AND “BEST LOCAL PROGRAMMING.” IN HIS TIME, ‘LITTLE JOE’ PLAYED WITH ROY ROGERS, GENE AUTRY, AND TOMMY HUNTER. HE DIED IN 2010 AT AGE 89. EVERAL HORHOZER PASSED AWAY IN LETHBRIDGE 6 YEARS LATER ON JUNE 6, 2016 AT THE AGE OF 88 YEARS.
