Detective Nick Graham was one of six policemen wounded in the gunbattle in which Detective Boyd Davidson and Gagnon died. Detective Graham was hit in the forehead by a bullet. The other five officers wounded in the Shootout were released from hospital within a few days of the incident. Detective Graham is scheduled for further surgery involving bone repair in a few months, a police spokesman said. Prison suicide probed DRUMHELLER (CP) The body of David Paul, 35, has been found hanging from a clothes locker in his cell at the Drumheller Federal Peniten- tiary. RCMP are investigating the suspected suicide. Paul, serving two and a half years for robbery, was scheduled for release in June, 1976. He was also known as Ronald Conrad Erickson, Ronald Press and Robert Starr'. CALGARY (CP) Thirty members of the Calgary Philharmonic Society are demanding an inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the controversy over the resignation of conductor Maurice Handford. The members have invoked an article in the society bylaws to demand an extraor- dinary general meeting of the society, said Norman Brown, a spokesman for the group. He said a signed request was delivered yesterday to Mrs. F. R. Matthews, president of the society. Mr. Brown said the bylaws provide for the holding of an extraordinary general meeting if at least 30 members submit a signed re- quest for such a meeting. "We feel it is in the best long-term interests of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra that this matter be he said. Mr. Handford submitted his resignation last month, effec- tive the end of the current concert season, although his contract had another year to run. The board of the society accepted his resignation Jan. 17. When Mr. Handford offered to withdraw his resignation, the board re- jected it Jan. 29 and appointed Franz Paul Decker of Montreal to replace -him. Mr. Handford said he didn't want to resign in the first place but certain circum- stances, which he declined to detail, made it'Mntolerable" for him. Following Mr. Handford's resignation, three others quit in protest over the board's handling of the matter. They were Philip Lewis, concert master for the last two years; Ann Arnold, a director of the society for six year; and Mrs. Harry Jennings, a director for three years and before that a musician in the orchestra. In a 138-name petition, the choir members of the orchestra also asked the board to reconsider its accep- tance of Mr. Handford's resignation, while 50 other members of the orchestra supported the board's accep- tance of Mr. Handford's resignation. Commenting on the latest development, Mrs. Matthews said the board had already discussed the possibility of an inquiry to bring out all the facts. At this stage, she was unable to say when the ex- traordinary general meeting would be held. hospital involved.

The caretakers went on strike last Friday, joining the strike by 750 caretakers employed by the public school system. The strike in the 1 public system, now two weeks old, has forced the closure of all its secondary schools starting Monday. Operation of elementary schools has been largely unaffected so far as volunteers mostly parents of students cross picket lines to fill in for the caretakers. Meanwhile, spokesmen for the school boards and the Canadian Union of Public Employees, representing caretakers employed by both systems, said there is little sign of a break in the strike. When contract talks collapsed, the boards and the union were wide apart in their positions for new one year contracts. The CUPE district council in Calgary, representing CUPE members in the city, has issued a statement pledging "full support" to locals 520 and 40 the caretakers' locals until they "attain their objectives." Although the strike in the public system started two weeks ago, school operations had been normal until Monday and the CUPE district council, in its statement, also "condemns the action of the Broadcaster off the air CALGARY (CP) Calgary oilmen Carl Nickle has ended his weekly oil report on Calgary television station CFCN, sponsored by the Bank of Montreal, after 7'A years of telecasting.

This tax dodge is for the average working person, and it's perfectly legal. Because the Government wants you to save for retirement, they are prepared to give you a legal tax dodge. The amount of tax money you can save is very worthwhile. For example, if you're married with two depen- dent children, and earned last tax saving could amount to over Here's what the Government says you can do. Within specified limits you can deposit part of your earned income each year, in a Canada Trust Retirement Savings Plan and deduct an equal amount from your taxable income. Less taxable income less tax for the Tax Man. It's that simple. (And if both husband and wife, work, both can set up a Plan.) Even if you're .-already in a pension plan at work, you can still take advantage of this tax saving. Because of rising inflation, a company pension may not be enough to guarantee you a comfortable retirement on its own. Here's an opportunity 'for you to have more money when you retire, and save on your income tax while you're at it. If you're short of cash you can still get in. Wfe can loan you the money to start a Plan. In most cases, right on the spot, and with no red tape. Ws call it our' 'Instant Retirement Savings And get this tax dodge! The interest on the loan is also tax deductible. Your money isn't locked in forever. With a Canada Trust Retirement Savings Plan there is no obliga- tion to make future deposits and no sales commission to pay Should you decide to forget the whole thing, you can get your money out. (But if you do, you'll have to pay the appropriate income tax.) March 1st is the deadline. If you decide you want to save on your 1974 taxes, better do it by March 1st. That's the deadline the Government has set. Nobody, not even the rich, can use this tax dodge after that. And here's the Grabber.
