(AP Wirephoto) By JOHN HARRIGAN The ancient game of daring Russian Roulette has spelled death for a Nashua man. Richard P. Bourglas, 30 of 37 Elm St., died this morning as the result of the self inflicted gunshot wound. And in a second shooting here last night, a local resi- dent, Leroy Owens, 42 of 4% Ridge St., was hospi- talized after being shot twice by an unknown gun- man in the rest room of a local club. Playing With Relative Police said Bourglas was play- big the deadly game with his brother-in-law, Clifton Linscott, of 9 Gillis St.., with a 22-caliber pistol. The game is well known. A shell Is placed in the chamber of the gun, the cylinder Is spun, and the participants fire the weapon on the chance that the chamber they use will be empty. Bourglas' chamber happened to hold the single shell. He had a chance of one put of nine cham- bers in the cylinder of the small pistol. The accident occurred at p.m. at Bourglas' home while his wife and 18-month-old baby girl were asleep. Police rushed to the apartment, directly behind the police station, and found Bourglas lying on the kitchen floor with a bullet wound in his right rear temple. He was rushed by police am- bulance to Memorial Hospital, where he died this morning at Hillsborough County Medical Referee D. John Spring pro- nounced him dead of a self-in- flicted gunshot wound. Second Shooting In the second shooting incident, police report that a Nashua man Harvard Girds for Strike By DAVID NYHAN CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) Student protest leaders drummed up sup- port today for a strike against Harvard University in retaliation for a club swinging police raid. There was no immediate gauge of the success of the three-day strike sought by the dissidents. About 40 pickets paraded in front of a classroom building across from University Hall, where 400 policemen routed demonstrators in a bloody clash Thursday. Despite the pickets, some stu- dents entered the building, Seaver Hall, where classes started. Hand lettered "strike" signs were taped around Harvard Yard. Unsympathetic students ripped down two of the signs. Originally, the protest was against Harvard's Reserve Offi- cers Training Corps (ROTC) program, but the emphasis changed Thursday to the police action in which more than SO persons received minor injuries and 189 were arrested. At least three policemen also were in- jured. Harvard President Nathan M. Pusey, who has remained silent on the situation, called a faculty meeting for 2 p.m. today to ex- plain why he called police to the campus. Students called for a three- day strike, or boycott of classes, and the resolution was cheered by an estimated many of them so-called moderates, at a meeting Thursday. The students also adopted a resolution "to thoroughly con- demn the bringing of police onto this campus, and the excessive use of violence while they were here." Meanwhile, the faculty of the Divinity School voted Thursday night to suspend all classes until Tuesday afternoon, and 500 Law School students also voted to strike. Approximately 100 "liberal" members criticized Pus- ey, the demonstrators and the calling of police onto the cam- pus. However, far less than half of the total graduate and under- graduate enrollment of participated in meetings to de- cide on a strike, so it was im- possible to predict what effect the boycott would have. Members of Students for a Democratic Society called for picketing this morning in front of Seaver Hall, opposite Univer- sity Hall, and for a meeting to- night at Memorial Church. The Harvard Crimson, stu- dent newspaper, today quoted Franklin L. Ford, dean of the faculty of Arts and Sciences, as saying the special faculty meet- ing today was called "to give the faculty a clear and full pic- ture of the incident and of the arguments pro and con" for the administration to wait out the sit-in rather than break it up. Fred L. Glimp, dean of Har- vard College, was to recom- mend what if any punishment should be given the demonstra- tors at the meeting. The Crimson, in an editorial, Budget Officials in Hudson List Committee Assignments By BILL ROBERTS HUDSON Several committee assignments were made at the meeting of the Hudson Budget Committee last night. They included: Richard Dolbec, Recreation Committee; Charles Guill, Public Utilities and Highway Department; Leonard Leach and Richard Dolbec, School Board; George Baker and John Bednar, Police Department, and Bednar, Selectmen. Committee assignments were made by chairman of the Budget Committee, James Hamilton. Leonard Leach made a motion to have the chairman present a written description of each assign- ment defining what each member Is expected to accomplish and what their responsibilities are. Two Facts A discussion followed in which two facts were developed. Com- mittee assignments do not pre- clude a committee member from 'analyzing other areas, and any proposal that involves the ex- penditure of money is within the budget committee's jurisdiction. Hamilton stated his intention to have the members keep abreast of all situations and cut down on hectic last minute Bednar made a motion to have the Budget committee meet twice PIZZA by Charles Famous thru out New England 147 W.

Sundays 3 PM to a month instead of a once a month affair. He stated this would re- sult in a shorter period of ex- penditures to analyze. It was suggested that the mem- bers bring in their reports at each meeting and financial data and reports will be requested from town departments and the school district. It was also suggested that any member unable to attend a meeting should send in his re- port for action by the committee. The motion.was adopted and the committee will meet on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at p.m. Bednar made another motion to have the chairman appoint a subcommittee to work up a "reasonable" schedule of events for the balance of the year. One of the stated purposes of the schedule was to be the elim- ination of last minute "bargaining sessions" in previous years, es- pecially with the school depart- ment. The motion was passed. Carter Motion Ray Carter made a motion to develop a form whereby a roll call vote could be taken and will become part of the permanent records of the meeting. He said this will eliminate much needless writing by the clerk and will allow the clerk more active participa- tion in the meeting. It was suggested that the form could be used for attendance as well as a record of the vote on each and every item acted on. BILLS ARE A PAIN LET A. B. 0.

ArranRSd Another suggestion was that the chairman be placed last to en- able him to break tie votes. He is to be preceded by the represent- ative of the Board of Selectmen or that of the School Board. The motion was passed by unanimous vote. A comment was made on a re- port that the School Board is now expending funds voted for the next fiscal year. It was suggested that this would be a good area for the newly appointed member representatives to look into. Another comment was that "field trips" into the schools for observations can be made in all areas that effect the budget. A question was asked relative to the availability of inventoriei from the town or school district, and whether or not the budget committee has the right to re- quest them. The answer given, to which no one present objected, was that the budget committee definitely has the right, by law and if desired to take whatever action necessary. Members present at last night's meeting were: Stanley Alukonis, Leonard Leach, George Arris, John Bednar, Ray Carter, Richard Dolbec, Charles Guill, and James Hamilton. School Board member William Batchelder was reported to be in Boston with other school district officials attending a financial sem- inar. Town and School District Mod- erator Lake Munday attended the meeting as an interested citizen. Next meeting scheduled is for April 24. KUHLS MARINE PRODUCTS Available at Nashua Wallpaper Co. 129 W.

Authorities said Owens was In the rest room when two bullets ripped through a dividing parti- tion and struck him in the arm and lower back. The incident occurred at p.m. Owens is listed in fair con- dition at Memorial Hospital. This second shooting is baffling police, according to Chief Paul Tracy. Authorities say they have talked to a score of persons near the rest room at the time of the shooting, but have no leads on the gunman. Chief Tracy said that Owens, after being shot, called out to the gunman and asked if he had set a firecracker off. "No, I the unidenti- fied assailant answered. It was then that Owens looked at his shoulder and discovered the wound. He went to the hos- pital under his own power, where the second wound was later found. Fair Condition He is listed by hospital officials as in "fair" condition this morn- ing. Authorities are launching a full-scale investigation of the incident. Investigating the Bourglas shoot- ing are Lt. Inspector Robert Barry, Sgt. Gerald Dube and Act- ing Inspector Roland Anctil. Heading the investigation o! the Owens shooting are Capt. Donald Boyer and Lt. Inspector Benoit Lavoie. Scene of Fatal Shooting This is the apartment house at 37 Elm St. where Richard P. Bourglas suf- fered a self-inflicted gunshot wound last night. The apartment is directly behind the police station. Bourglas died this morning at Memorial Hospital from a wound in the temple. (Telegraphoto-Harrigan) Schools Officials Favor Giant High School Plan New Tax Proposal Aimed at Wealthy By EILEEN SHANAHAN NBW York Times News Serviei WASHINGTON A new plan for making sure that no wealthy person can escape income taxes year after year is being worked out in the Treasury Department and will probably be presented to Congress within two weeks. The Treasury's approach to the problem of the wealthy non-tax- payer has not yet been approved by President Nixon, and, in fact, some complex technical details of the plan remain to be worked out. Progress on the proposal has been sufficient, however, for it to be discussed informally with sev- eral key members of Congress, as well as within the administra- tion. Treasury officials believe that the plan will be ready for pre- sentation on April 22, when they are scheduled to testify before the House Ways and Means Commit- tee on tax reform. The proposal for a tax on per- sons with large quantities of cur- rently tax-exempt income is ex- pected to be only one of several different reform proposals that will be made at that time. The tax-all-the-rich plan worked out by present Treasury Depart- ment officials is identical in its objectives but different in its mechanics from the so-called "minimum tax" proposal that was worked out by Treasury officials during the Johnson administra- tion. The Board of Education has voted to adopt a policy favoring the construction of a single, com- prehensive high school. School Supt. Edmund M. Keefe said the board took the step in executive session on a roll call vote of 8-2. Voting in favor were Dr. Nor- man W. Crisp, Board of Educa- tion president, Mrs. Jean Wallin, Dr. J. Gerard Levesque, Dr. N. John Fontana, Gerard Prunier, Mrs. Margaret Flynn, Herbert Miller and Paul G. April. Against were Margaret 'Cote and John T. Dimtsios. Absent were Richard W. Leonard and William J. O'Neil. The board's decision is in line with recent recommendations made by the educational con- sultant firm of Engelhardt, En- gelhardt and Leggett. "The board based its Keefe said, "on the advantages which can ensue from a large high school. "There can be a greater num- ber of curricula choices and a better chance for variety in the school program. There will be a unifying influence on students and the community as a whole. "All high school students will be educated in a facility that will have the advantages of the latest thinking and planning in terms of college preparation and vocation- al opportunities." Announcement Delayed Keefe said the decision was made Wednesday night but the an- nouncement was delayed a day so Mayor Dennis J. Sullivan could be advised of the development. He said the board did not choose a site for the "super high" which would house grades nine through 12. The Engelhardt report recom- mends that the comprehensive high school be built on the YudicM land on Main Dunstable Road. The 78-acre tract is under the jurisdiction of the Board of Edu- cation and the aldermen Tues day night authorized the transfel of funds from unexpended school bond issues to purchase an ad- ditional 42 acres abutting the prop- erty. Construction of a high school expandable to house pupils, is recommended by thi Engelhardt report. Keefe said the board will meet with the aldermanic members- ol the joint school building commit- tee Wednesday night to hear thi lurriculum survey report prepared by the educational consultants and to begin plans for financing school construction program. So Ions Can Ride Free On N. H. Toll Highways CONCORD, N. H. (AP) A bill signed into law late Thurs- day by Gov. Walter Peterson gives New Hampshire legisla- tors toll-free use of the state's turnpikes. The free passes through the toll booths will be provided on identification of a legislator by his legislative license plate. The toll-free use is granted for the legislator's term of office and was effective immediately. Another bill signed into law by the governor plugs an appar- ent loophole in the state's motor vehicle inspection law. The governor also signed a bill that specifies that a so- called Massachusetts trust doing business in New Hampshire is to be considered a foreign cor- poration.

The session was conducted by Alderman-at-Large John V. Ches- son, chairman of the traffic com- mittee. Unanimous Vote The committee voted unani- mously to have City Planner Fred D. McCutchen and Deputy Police Chief Charles D. Hurley prepare applications to obtain federal funds for the installation of a traf- fic light on East Dunstable Road and Main Street plus widening of the intersection to furnish hold- ing lanes. Estimated cost of the project is exclusive of required land-taking. The intersection im- provement has been given top priority for implementation under the TOPICS program with costs to be paid from the parking meter fund.
