Alex Stewart, 8 Kidd Avenue, was officially informed that his son, Pilot Officer Maxwell McLean Stewart, was officially presumed dead. Pilot Officer Stewart, a prominent figure in amateur sporting circles of western Canada, was a teacher on the staff of the Chilliwak, British Columbia, High School. Some months ago his father was advised that his son was missing at sea, and notification that he was listed as dead for official purposes is the only word he has had since that time.
Prior to joining the school staff, Pilot Officer Stewart was outstanding in athletic circles, being especially prominent in track and field sports. In his memory, the student council of the school where he taught has presented a trophy to be competed for each year. The trophy will be up for annual competition in track events.
