From The Rink
To many boys living in Canada, playing hockey is a much a part of life as attending school, because to Canadians hockey is more than just a game-it's an institution.
One of these boys who carried skates as well a schoolbooks was Bill L'Heireux. Raised in Port Arthur, Ontario, Bill learned his early playing skills by participating in pee-wee, bantam, midget, and high school hockey. At the same time, he "hit the books" hard enought o earn a college scholarship at the age of sixteen.
While attending Assumption College at Windsor, Ontario, Bill played Junior "B" and later Senior hockey with the Windsor team in the Michigan-Ontario League. After graduation from college at the age of nineteen, Bill had to decide whether to accept or refuse one of three offers to join a National Hockey League club. After much thought, he refused them all in favor of a teaching career in physical education, for in this feild he could combine his keen interest in sports with his desire to work with boys in athletics.
Bill L'Heureux, Professor of Physical Education at the University of Western Ontario, is a recognized hockey authority.
