1- . 1 '-.24 BEATEN BY PROFESSOR (B The CP) - Ontario Education Minister k Davis said Thursday that more and more English - language' elementary school boards in the -province want to introduce oral, French classes, but -qualified French teachers are scarce. . . He -expressed the hope that ihe new French-language teach rs college at Laurentian University in Sudbury and the older French teachers college at the University of Ottawa will increase the number of hilin gua! teachers sufficiently -to meet- the growing -demand. "Your English-speaking compatriots in Ontario are in increasing numbers interested in learning the language of Racine." he told 350 French-speaking school trustees at the annual meeting of the Bilingual School Trustees 'Association .of Ontario. ' fie said 181" publ.c school boards now provide oral -French I courses for their English-speak-j ing - pupils. But success was j achieved . only with teachers ' who spoke French fluently with a good accent and pronunciation. . - ' The Canadian Teachers' Federation is. against extending - social insurance numbers -to teachers, Norman Gpble, assistant secretary, said Thursday. Mr. Goble told 200 members of the Ontario Publx School Men. Teachers' Federation the unemployment fund should be kept solvent through normal taxation methods, when he addressed an OPSMTF dinner at the Talisman Motor Hotel Inn. Mt is regrettable in some parts of "the efftrntry teachers are told, it (social insurance) is compulsory. At present it is voluntary," he said. "Where the system has any advantage we can't help noticing it would make it easier to put into effect certain suggest tons of the Gill Committee on unemployment insurance to which teachers' organizations re unanimously opposed." It would take $9,000,000 from teachers each year and an addit.Kjnal $9,000,000 from t h e school boards. The money would come from funds collected for educational purposes, Mr. Goble said "w 6upport federal funds." Other reasons teachers opposed -the committee, he said, were because social insurance was "not genuine insurance. Teachers are riot likely to br unemployed and they would be asked i to contribute without any probability of benefit." Mr. Goble added that "taxation limited to one section of New Policy On Found-ins TORONTO (CP) - Members of the Metropolitan Toronto7 Police Commission agreed Thursday that police should no longer charge party-goers as found-ins' - because -someone in the house appears drunk.
