R.M.C. Review No. 4703 , RONALD WALTER SHURB BANTING MEMORIAI, HIGH SCHOOL Ron. born in Brandon, Manitoba. on March 4, 1936, received most of his earlier education in army schools and graduated from Banting Memorial in Alliston, Ont. He spent his next three years at CMR, acquiring a taste for "cokes", alcoholic beverages, games of clhance, good music. and the fairer sex. While at CMR. he played on its repre- sentative football, golf, and fencing teams, in the latter sport achieving class B standingg and for two consecutive years he was runner-up in the Quebec Championship-s. On arrival at RMC, he became the fencing team captain and played on the representative volleyball team. Spending some extra time in third year, Ron discovered that cutting hair wasn't so difficult. Last summer, he worked with INCO up at Hudson Bay, and acquired some practical experi- ence in surveying. Ron, a staunch member of the Royal Canadian Engineers, studies Civil Engineering at RMC and hopes to be posted to Germany upon completion of his studies at UBC. His ability to get along well with others and his good sense of humour will continue to keep Ron a popular fellow, and should bring him a successful career. No. 5214 BRIAN LACHLAN MELVILLE SMITH ST. JAMES COLLEGIATE "Smitty" first graced the world in VVinnipeg, on April 22, 1939. He gained his early education from no less than three provinces - Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, and as a result, joined us at RMC' in 1957 with a good deal more than a formal diploma. To this early travel and introduction to such a wide cross-section of Canada and people in general, could be attributed the universal acceptance that congenial Brian enjoyed among his classmates. He took up his favourite sport here, football, in his second year. His drive and energy soon over- came any disadvantage encountered by his com- paratively small sizie. and as fullback this past season he proved a tremendous asset to the senior team. By then he had already made an impressive name for himself in CSC boxing. and on the college gymnastics team as well. An Electrical Engineering student, he will secure his degree this coming year at the U of T, then pursue his career as an RCAF pilot. Best wishes for the future, Smitty, and remember the Coronation Wing! CF. F. WJ No. 5100 STEPHEN WRIGHT SPERO Cfadet Spero was born in Prescott, Ont., March 31, 1939, and received his primary education there. His family moved to Brantford and then to Kingston where Steve graduated in 1956. The year 1956 was a momentous one as two scholarships were awarded to Steve: a dying scholarship which allowed him to earn his private pilot's licence, and an ROTP scholarship to attend CMR. The three years at CMR saw Steve become a valued member of Escadrille Parties. Active in all sports, he was especially outstanding in basketball and hockey. Studies were another matter. and two years were required to sort them out. At gradua- tion, however, Steve won top prizes in mathematics and physics. At RMC, he did verv well in the third year in Chemical Engineering, however, a History "SUD" .robbed him of the prize for chemical engineers. Steve has a good life ahead if he can tackle new problems as he did the old, and if he can retain his keen sense of humor. KH. A. CJ

No. 5220 KENNETH HARRISON SCOTT BEMROSE GRAMMAR SCHOOL The college has been blessed these past four years with the blond hair and English accent of Ken Scott. The accent is no accident as .Scotty was born in Derby, England, on March 31, 1937. He received his early schooling at Bemrose, graduating in 1953. Contrary to popular jests, Ken was not de- ported. He sailed for Canada with his mother and father in the summer of 1953. They settled in Montreal which soon earned Ken's affection. For four years he worked during the day and went to night school at Sir George William College. This hard work won him the right for further education at RMC as a member of the RCN. Since discovering skiing, Ken has been very enthusiastic about the sport. Cycling is no longer one of his major interests. A member of the repre- sentative Sailing Club, Ken is an accomplished sailor. Further in the aquatic field, he has been a member of the swimming team for the past four years and has managed it for the past two. Follow- ing his mechanical abilitv, Ken is enrolled in Mechanical Engineering. VVe wish Ken the best of luck! CJ. G. TJ No. 5291 STANLEY CHARLES SHEPHERD RICHMOND HILL HIGH SCHOOL Stan was born in Elgin Mills in January. 1939. According to best information available, it was here he picked up his famous "little black cloud" which has been his ever-present companion with a few notable exceptions. His liittle companion didn't prevent him obtain- ing Outstanding marks in high school, nor did it affect his successful application for ROTP. When he turned up at Roads on "that" day, his nemesis seemed to start working overtime, but his irrepressible sense of humour saw him through. Finishing with first class honours in second year, he decided to try Engineering Physics at RMiC. But he saw the light along with the other ten members who joined the ranks of Electricals. Very impressed with the beauties of the West Coast, Stan plans to attend UBC next year. Stan's career as a pilot hasn't suffered from the effects of his little cloud, and we wish him the best of luck on T-Birds at Portage next year. QM. lil. SJ
