PICTURE OF THE MONTH AWARD PICTURE OP THE MONTH—A dramatic Globe and Mail street shot of a detective firing tear gas at a gunman holed up in a downtown Toronto sporting goods store wins the August Picture-of-the-Month award—the eighth for photographer Boris Spremo in three years. Police investigating a break-in at the sporting goods store on the night of Aug. 17 were met by shotgun blasts. Spremo focused his Pentax 35-mm. on a detective with a tear gas gun, crouched behind a car. His shot—electronic flash at 1/50 second and f5.6 on Tri-X film —caught the smoke and glare as a gas cannister was fired. TORONTO OUT 13-9-65
