Sugar Distribution. » — I REQUEST FOR TEACHERS' I SERVICES REFUSED. It was reported at the meeting of the Borough Education Committee on Wed- nesday evening that the Town Clerk (Mi- H. W. Spowart) had, on behalf of the local Food Control Committee, asked that the boys' schools should be closed for a week in order that the teachers might assist in the enormous amount of work entailed by the new scheme for sugar distribution. Coun. D. Jennings: I am dead against closing the schools for this purpose. Lady Howard said that children were lawless enough already, and some other means should be found of getting the clerical work done. Ald. R. P. Thomas: Why not ask the ministers of the Gospel and the clergy, together with the police and the pupils at the Arcade School of shorthand to assist ? I do not believe in closing the schools, and especially at this time of the year. The Chairman (Coun. D. R. Jones): The first suggestion was that one teacher should be taken from each department,- but it was found that there was a short- age of teachers already. Coun. Jennings: How many teachers can we spare ? The Clerk: The schools at present are very full and I don't think you can with- draw any teachers whilst the schools are open. The schools have never been as full as they are this month. Coun. W. E. Clement thought the Council's officials should be prepared to work on at night until the pressure was relieved. Coun. Jennings proposed that the Food Control Committee be informed that the Committee could not see their way clear to accede to the application. Coun. J. L. Jones seconded the motion which was agreed to, and on the motion of the Mayor it was decided to ask the teachers to render what voluntary assist- ance they could in the cvpningg and on Saturdays.
