|If you walk through the barracks
of a Saturday afternoon and see a dark complexioned man with his head
buried in a radio that is giving out with "La Traviata", "The Barber
of Seville", "Figaro", or "Scrub me Mama with a Bogie Beat", you can be
pretty sure the enraptured listener is John Louis, native of Hull, born
Dec. 14, 1919, and graduate (class of '36) of the University of
Ottawa. An informed hockey fan, John is even more remarkable for
his knowledge of the movies, and has seen more of them than Cecile B.
deMille, Shirley Temple and Gene Autry put together -- and any night
there is a movie in the south barracks -- exams or no -- there is
John! Leaving a position with the National Harbors Board in
Ottawa, John enlisted in the Capital City February 28, 1941.
