Obituaries: Jim Peterson and Cde Hollingshead

Old timers of the S.P. of Canada are rapidly passing away. News has come to hand of the death of Jim Peterson, of Vancouver, and Comrade Hollingshead, of Calgary.


Jim was taciturn, well informed and faithful; his place will be hard to fill. He spoke little but always to the point, and never failed to be on hand when help was needed.


“Holly” was of a different type, blithe and lively. He always met a comrade with a welcoming smile. His house was ever open, and, together with his wife, he did a lot to encourage members of the Party during periods of strain. We extend our sympathy to Mrs. Hollingshead in her bereavement and to Canadian comrades in their great loss.
