Encore un verre de vin ....
La troupe de "Le Long Dîner de Noel"
JUSQU'A LA FIN
Jusqu'à la fin je serai fidèle au Club Français ...............
This last year has never seen the addition of numerous new members to the crew,
as it began to take on new and broader responsibilities, and move slowly away from
obscurity. Its members now come from four grades in the school, and, as a rule, those
of one grade are responsible for all the performances concerning that grade. This new
efficiency, combined with experience and a general broadening of scope, has been the
dominant aspect of this year's stage crew.
Most of last year's Grade 12 members have since found the pressure of Grade 13
too great to allow them time for the stage crew. However, three have remained, and

Pentti has done much to shape the image of the crew and influence staff-crew relations.
On the opposite end of the personality scale is quiet, responsible Don Keel. His
constant smile has given some the impression that he knows a lot more than he is

The last of the 13s on the crew is Alf Yip. Alf, too, is continually smiling, with
the same resulting impression. Ail hasn't had too much time for the crew this year, but
nonetheless his Signals experience has enabled him to act as an authoritative source
of information, as well as the best (and in some cases, the only) member able to fix
