Q. �   By GEOFF TAGG Special Correspondent FOREMOST - County of 40-Mile school committee recently spent some time discussing possible action should the teachers go on strike. Teachers will take a strike vote Feb. 26, 27 and 28. The results are expected to be known March 1. A course of action was decided upon should the teachers withdraw their services. School custodians and school aides will remain at their jobs. School buses would not operate. It is expected school libraries will remain open on a part-time basis. Libi-aries will be staffed by school aides. The committee also discussed accreditation of senior high schools. The matter was tabled pending further information. A GOOD MOVE The committee expressed fa-" vor in dispensing with departmental examinations, in principle, but had not expected that such a move would be implemented so quickly. Some concern was expressed about the power tests not being available in time. These are achievement tests for all grade levels, available to any school system wishing to make use of them to check then-achievement against provincial norms. The department of education earlier indicated the power tests would probably be available by the time the Grade 12 examinations were dropped. Eight-hour shift moves 126,738 tons NATAL (HNS) - Stories of broken records ar� becoming commonplace in Kaiser Resources operations.

Here's a perfectly legal way to use the Government's own rules to save on income tax. The Government has a law that says in effect; "If you save now for your retirement, we'll let you pay as much as $4,000 into a registered retirement savings plan every year, and we'll let you knock it off your income". (It used to be $2,500, but this year the Government has upped it to $4,000. Some things are getting better.) So you merely lower your taxable income by putting up to $4,000 in our registered retirement savings plan and don't pay the tax on it. Say you're self-employed, married, have, two dependants under 16 years of age and earned sixteen thousand in 1972. Depending on the province you live in, your tax saving could amount to $1,161 which is^butfdle in any man's language. \' v, ^ , To top it all off, the money you save can make more money. Essentially there are four ways you can do this. You can have us invest it in stocks. You can have us invest it for a guaranteed rate of interest You can have us invest it in income producing bonds *ASK FOR DETAILS AT PARTICIPATING BRANCHES and mortgages. Or you can divide your money up using any conjjbin#ictf^f| these three al$e^$ttVes.v /. jg&w r ^T4i#eajttty;^i||iYoui'Sn'actually control tnecolnoination as your needs ^change over the years. For instance you could invest in stocks for several years, for long-term growth. And then as you get closer to retirement, you might want to switch to a guaranteed interest rate. And you can get your money out without paying a penalty. When you eventually choose to withdraw it, you have to pay taxes on it at that time, of course. But this is what's most important. You pay tax on your money when you decide to pay it. This means later, when you're likely in a lower tax bracket This has led some to call this plan a tax shelter. One fellow we know plans to pay into it for several years, watch it grow, then take it out to replace normal income while he lazes in Majorca. But let's face it, the real benefit comes from leaving it in 'til you retire. Moreover, we don't have a lot of salesmen^out making calls, therefore ^mufllonfl have to pay sales commis- "This means, however, that you have to call us. Don't put it off. You can't deduct any deposits from your 1972 income after Thursday, March 1st, 1973. If you're short of cash, talk to us about a low cost loan. The interest is deductible from your taxable income so you'll still save a bundle. Make the rules work for you. Prions us now!
