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
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.
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!

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
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.

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
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

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.
