(AP) Children of the bilingual public school? of Greenville, N.H., are taking to the use of French and English "like a bee to tays the project director. Greenville is site of a special bilingual test program, the only one in the state. It gives the cliildren a working knowledge of French, while improving their English. But it aims even higher. "The objective here is accept- ance on the part of Franco- Americans of says Normand Robitaille, project di- rector, "and acceptance on the sart of Anglos of Francos." "It is to take these youngsters and make them feol positive about coming from a Franco- American background." The program is being funded, on an experimental basis, by the U.S. office of education. Similar French-English pro- grams are under way in Maine, Vermont, Louisiana and New York. "These youngsters take to this like a bee to says Robitaille. "They love it."

The problem, lie says, is that many young- sters start school deficient in both French and English, and this has been reflected in high drop-out rates for the Francos.

"This is an Eng- lish-speaking milieu, so English is learned. However, it is not learned correctly." The program began with Grade 2. Each year, it has progressed one grade with the children in the original class, while continuing to provide in- struction in the grades already covered. Last year, it also ex- panded into kindergarten, and now covers kindergarten through Grade 5. 7 BILINGUAL The program boasts seven bilingual teachers and four bili- ngual aides, along with three teachers who speak only Eng- lish.

(CP) A part-time studies program with no residency or full-time study requirements has been ap- proved in principle by the St. Francis Xavier University se- nate. The program is designed tor those persons prohibited by social or economic conditions from attending university full time. The proposal would allow a student to obtain a general degree without spending one year of full time study at tho university campus. If approved, the project would be imple- mented next year. Initially it would be offered in arts and business administration. dren from the ethnic group from the total he says. "We teach subject mat- ters in French to the Francos, whenever it's best lo do so, and at the same time teach French to the Anglos." For example, a Franco-Amer- ican youngster who is deficient in English will cover all his Tegular school courses in French. Then, to reinforce Eng- lish, he will get the same in- struction in that language. The child who speaks no French will be taught as much as possible of it through the subject matter the Franco child is learning, then get the subject matter reinforced through repe- tition in English. EQUAL AT GRADE 5 By Grade 5, the Franco youngsters are as adept at Eng- lish as the Anglos, Robitaille has become the pre- says. "It dominant language, and that's our he says, "However, we want them to be bilingual, to accept their French and be proud they speak it." As the children grow older, their language abilities appear to even out, Robitaille says. Franco children who have been in the program for four years seem to be improving in Eng- lish at a faster rate than the Anglo youngsters, and their fluency in English now is equal to or better than the Anglos. "And we find the Anglo child picking up the French at a greater rate than the Franco is improving he said. "We find many of our Anglos after three years are really quite adept at the language. Francos who spoke it are much more fluent than the Anglos, but in reading we find many cases the Anglos ate much superior." Robitaille says the program teaches French free of accents such as that of French-speaking Canada. "But the Important point is we are accepting the dialect he comes lo us Robitaille says. "We are reinforcing it with the standard Fjjmch. If he uses the dialect, we give him the model in the standard form. We're careful we don't make Kim feel it's wrong lo use it. It's good.

"Fashion With A Flair" DENNIS BLOODWOrtTII London Observer SINGAPORE Singapore Government offices d e a 1 ing with visitors display a sign warning newcomers that males with long hair will be attended to last. They also have pictures on walls showing visitors just what hair should be clipped if they are to fit into this trim lit- tle republican society. For Singapore is South-East Asia's garden city. "Everything seems to be an offence making one liable to fines con complained General Prapart Charusathien, of Thailand, recently, pointing out that you might have to pay nearly Jor littering if the wind plucked away the paper wrapping on your cigarette packet in a Singapore street. Witnesses are ejected from court for being "improperly and the principle ap- plies to front lawns too. Not long ago residents of a housing estate were wat.'ned that if they did not decently cover their walls with vcrnonia clliptica climber, the government would do it and bill them. But then it depends what you want garden or gutter. Gen- eral Prapart added somewhat boastfully that in Thailand, "anybody can throw away any- thing he pleases on the street or you can spit anywhere, and there is no fine." But not everyone enjoys Great Expectorations. Singapore has just celebrated the seventh anniversary of win- ning its independence with much flag-wagging, for as well as being a garden city State it is also the success story of South-East Asia. Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew has spent 13 years beating Singapore into its present streamlined shape with the autocratic efficiency of a purse- lipped masseur, and the repub- lic's smooth economic muscles were not developed without sac- rifice, discipline, dries and groans. With the towering housing blocks and the expanding new industry went the tight wage restraints, the draft for 18-year- olds and detention for "unde- the war on long hair and litterbugs, and all the other legislation against "decadent subcultures" designed to con- vert a heterogeneous assort- ment of Asian immigrants into bright, clean (and eventually polished) Singaporeans with a keen sense of social sin, led by a patriotic and meritorious elite. Not all wanted to be groom- ed for stardom, however, and his detractors accused of turning Singapore into a prick- ly, self contained success a "little Israel" expensively arm- ed against distrustful neighbors to wliom he should have shown the open and empty hand of friendship instead. The accusation may be a mis- leading quarter-lrulh, but oppo- sition parties in the forthcom- ing election are pandering to the disgruntled by variously promising not only free medical services and free housing, but free political suspects (some 60 are still behind the an end to National Service and possibly the army itself, union with the Federation of Malay- sia next door, and-or lies with China.
