"Most jobs have to be sought outside the reserve community which means either the head of the household is based away from the home or, more likely, the whole faniiiy is migrant" She said there is no way these families are going to es- tablish a good permanent home, which means not only the quality of home life suffers but the children's education. The women are closer to the children and they know if the reserves are not developed; Ibfih- children will suffer even more than the parents. They desire jobs for their children on the reserves and thus a likeli- hood of security for the homes on the reserves. Children face many problems In school, starting with the idea English is a second language for them, with little effort made In the present system to help them increase their vocabu- lary and their understanding and use of the foreign language "We feel teaching the native language in the schools would help in many instances to re- tain the native culture and to instill in the children a greater pride of the Children, in many Instances. are counselled away from the matriculation program when many would like to follow aca- demic training.

"We women of the reserves expect many improvements in our communities as a result of economic development better homelife, better educa- tion for. our children, continuing education for adults, and better health care and recreational pro- gram for all ages.

I healthful atmosphere." School for sloiv children started by concerned moms TORONTO (CP) Some east-end Toronto mothers have decided to take the education of their children into their own hands. The mothers have started a private school for children who have learning problems instead of allowing them to continue in special classes of the Toronto board of education. One of the mothers, Dorothy Srigley, called the board's op- portunity'classes for such chil- dren "glorified baby-sitting." She said she and the other mothers want the children to re- ceive a more substantial educa- tion than the opportunity classes offer. Twelve students, aged 13 to 17, are attending the newly formed school in a Presbyterian church. The mothers have hired two full-time teachers and one part- time to instruct at the school, which has been called the Gate- way private school. "They will get more reading, writing and history and fewer field said Mrs, Srigley.

This central market area was famous for years as the place for tha chic to go in the early hours to eat onion soup and rub shoulders with market workers. The atmosphere died last year when most of the market activi- ties moved to new quarters near Oriy Airport.' The city council has adopted a plan to build a museum of con- temporary art, a library, as in- ternational trade centre, an auc- tion centre, hotels, apartments, schools and sports facilities. Some buildings in the district will be restored rather than de- molished. The council called for low-cost housing as part of the project. Anyone who loses his existing apartment must be rehoused within the city limits if he de- sires.

Leaders of women's rights organizations said here they would rather leave things the wiy they are then settle for Senator Brigh Bayh's substitute for the no-holds-barred amend- ment approved by the House of Representatives weeks ago. After the women's news con- ference, a spokesman for the Indiana Democrat said their faihire to support Bayh's last- minute plan to rescue some semblance of the amendment meant: "As far as we're con- cerned, it's dead." The Bayh substitute is the first order of business for a re- turning Senate nest week, but it apparently will be removed from the calendar without pro- test. The original version of the amendment reads simply that "equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States THE BETTER HALF By Bob Barnes "It's an obscene pliona call from your ATTEND THE ALL NEW A.N.A.F.-UNIT 34 BINGO IN THE CLUBROOMS COR. 5th AVE. and 6th ST.
