Bear, Edna [photograph] (clipping) 26 Apr 44 [image] TROUPER-AW. Edena Bear an R.C.A.F. entertainment unit dancers, is scheduled to join the overseas branch. AW. Edna Bear Overseas Bound In R.C.A.F. Show AW. Edna Bear, tall, slim, brunette and 21 was the last girl to enlist with the R.C.A.F., a month ago, and will soon be on her way overseas. The envy of many an ambitious girl, she will dance her way across England, and possibly Scotland, as a member of the cast of the "Debutantes of 1944" R.C.A.F. show. On-stage, she dashes through five dance numbers, and has a part in a skit. She must be equally agile backstage in order to change costumes for the can-can, rhumba, toe, Mexican and variety numbers, as there are only 11 girls in the cast. She's out front a good deal of the show. The show will not make an appearance in Canada, but is due almost immediately in England to replace a unit now in Scotland. Edna's dark eyes sparkle at the thought of being able to quench her thirst for travel. Edna was a student of the Marguerite Sweitzer School of Dancing for ten years, and was ane employee of the Dominion Electrohome Industries Ltd., prior to enlisting. She is the daugher of Sgt. and Mrs. William Bear, 41 Lancaster Street East.
