"LEGLESS, 90, STILL LIVELY

A pastor without legs, but with a super-abundance of faith, Rev. A.H. Argue, Maytree Road, hits the ripe old age of 90 tomorrow and if any Pentecostal church wants an occasional preacher, he's ready, willing and eager to oblige, providing a couple of strong-arm men are available to lift his wheelchair into the pulpit.

Ordained 51 years ago, the cousin of CCF politician Hazen Argue, is renowned as the founder of the largest Pentecostal church in Canada - Calvary Temple, Winnipeg. The loss of one leg 11 years ago and other nine years ago, because of circulatory ailment hasn't stopped the gentle, blue-eyed nonagenarian with the gold-rimmed spectacles. This year he has preached in Montreal, Belleville, Peterborough and Toronto, as well as making a short address at the recent Fifth World Conference of Pentecostal Churches held at the Coliseum.

Atlantic and Pacific

A 30-minute man in the pulpit, "Grandpa" Argue as he is affectionately known, loves fishing for fish as well as for men. He has wetted a line in the Atlantic and Pacific, and a lot of lakes in between.

"Netted a 38-pound muskie in my prime" he said.

Among his proudest moments are a handshake from President Calvin Coolidge and a letter from the late King George VI.

The wheelchair pastor, who has ministered in 70 different Pentecostal assemblies from Los Angeles to Montreal, smilingly admits that Argue is quite a name for a parson and he's done quite a bit of it over the years for the cause he represents.

"Two of my children were named Will Argue and May Argue", he said.

Fathers Three Preachers

Of his six children, five are still alive. His wife died in 1939. Mr. Argue's eldest daughter, Zelma, is Rev. Zelma Argue, an ordained minister in a California Pentecostal group; a son, Rev. Watson Argue, Santa Monica, California, is an evangelist, while another daughter, Mrs. C.B. Smith, Peterborough is a licensed lay woman preacher.

Two grandsons are already in the pastorate - Rev. Andrew Watson Argue, Jr. , Southgate, California, and Rev. George Smith, Edmonton, Alberta, while two others are preparing for the ministry at Springfield, Mo.

One of the first Canadians who shared in the original Pentecostal conversion experience 50 years ago when he "spoke with other tongues", Mr. Argue is living with his youngest daughter, Mrs. Fulton Robinson.

Fondling his granddaughter's dog, Chee Chee, the pastor said he did not think the world was a better place now than at the time of his ordination. "It's too restless and youngsters take too many liberties", he said.

As he sifted through the first of his birthday cards, he added that he wasn't too unhappy, however, "because the Lord is coming soon."

56 Rev. Hugh J. McAlister and the McAlister family trace their Pentecost heritage to the Argue revivals in Winnipeg in 1907. Having received Spirit-baptism as a young man, Hugh followed in his father John's footsteps and entered Pentecostal ministry. He was ordained in Alberta in 1924 and pastored in Edmonton, Calgary, and Saskatoon. He later moved to Ontario and pastored at St. Thomas, Pembroke, Peterborough, and finally the Stone Church in Toronto. He was District Superintendent for Eastern Ontario and Quebec from 1943-1945 and served on the General Executive of the PAOC. A great leader of the national movement, Hugh was instrumental in bringing Billy Graham to Toronto for a crusade in 1955. A few months later, Hugh died suddenly and unexpectedly. A great Pentecostal preacher, pastor, and father, his passing was a great loss for the fellowship.
