Cercle Francais

Cercle Francais

A French Club has at last been formed at VUC bringing us into line with the other colleges. AUC and CUC have similar clubs well established already, and OU has started one this year.

The aim in forming the club is to increase the interest of French students in language once proses, lectures, and exams have been forgotten. In order to do this it is important to have a club in which the majority of students would be able to take an active part.

The officers of the club are:
  • Patron: M. Gazel.
  • President: Miss F. M. Huntington.
  • Secretary: A. S. G. Butler.
  • Committee: Elizabeth Florance.
  • Barbara Fougere, Geraldine
  • Lawrence, J. Finlay. F. B.
  • Hogben, J. G. McArthur.

As we have been rather late in starting we will only hold four evenings during the second term this year. The dates have been arranged so as not to clash with the meetings of the Wellington French Club to which a number of students belong. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 28. Watch the notice boards for the programme.

There once was a girl who said "Strike
Me pink, here's a poem in Spike.
[unclear: A] about me!
How famous I'll be!
And how awfully clever of Mike!"
