L. William chairman of the Federal Deposit Insurance said yesterday his agency is adding a bank daily on average to its watch list of institutions with such weak balance sheets that there is a danger they could fail.

While typically only about 10 per- cent of the troubled banks Seidman noted that already this year his agency has had to close 123 a post-Depression record.

According to the commis- sioned by the Metropolitan Life In- surance 55 percent of the teachers said they have seriously considered quitting the compared with 51 percent in the 1985 survey. The margin of error was plus or minus 5 percentage points. Reforms are not adequate The 1986 poll was the first to include the opinions of teacher union lead- state education state legislators who serve on education and deans of colleges of education.
