That was a few years before my time - but there was an entire story posted here on the WNBB about Mr. Hugh Hendrickson and the incident of which you speak. I think that the story was posted by someone a few years back, so you might have to search for it. I took skating lessons there at the 48th Avenue Ice Arena when I was 8-9 years old (around 1961-62) from a man named Merle Baxter. At that time, I believe that the Ice Arena was owned by Joe and Marlene Thurston.
