It is Well to remember that the fuel and its Vapours Are soon parted and that even a safety can is powerless to prevent a fire or explosion in an Auto trunk once Vapours have escaped through its safety vent Aid an ignition source is he cited a Case in which two safety experts placed a safety can full of gasoline in the trunk of a car moved to a Safe distance left the engine running and waited. Within 20 minutes the entire Back of the car exploded. The cause Grigo reasoned that As the trunk became warmer the gasoline expanded and generated enough pressure to Force Vapours out past the vented Cap. In the closed trunk Vapours soon reached explosive proportions and needed Only an ignition source perhaps a Short in the taillight circuit to touch off an explosion. He also noted that a can of Gas in the trunk or passenger compartment of a car could turn a minor traffic mishap into a fiery Highway holocaust.

Robert Dole Kansas Republican is already campaigning for re election in 1974 and is Back in the Home area doing some Fence mending. He openly admits there is a need for such an Effort. He says he knows he May be in trouble with some segments of the i Don t know if that is because of the Bill of goods my opponents have been trying to sell or whether it s really True though i strongly suspect it s More the former than the latter. The people i be met Haven t indicated i m that bad off though it s certainly a lot better to Start checking on such things now rather than waiting until it s too there Are repeated rumours that Dole will be opposed either by democratic gov. Robert Docking or if Docking seeks a fifth term As governor by democratic rep. Bill Roy. Dole says it does t make any difference to him which Man he faces and that he has 13 years of experience in Congress on his Side. Another thing that seems important to me and which i plan to stress in the Campaign no matter who the opponent May be is the fact that if i m re elected i la become the ranking Republican on the Senate agriculture committee. Since Kansas is a farm state and farming is As important As it is that should mean quite a Dole is still trying to abolish All the after taste of being associated so directly with the Nixon administration As Republican National chairman during a time when the watergate episode occurred. The Kansas senator has declared forcefully from the Start he had nothing to do with the debacle. He like Many others including president Nixon were thwarted when he tried to find out what was going on. It was in fact Dole s insistence about getting to the Bottom of the matter that led to his premature departure As National chairman late in 1972. Dole clearly had fallen in Disfavour with the Palace guard at the White House in the last months of his chairmanship and there is evidence that the Haldeman Ehrlichman Kleindienst Combine succeeded in getting him ousted before Dole planned to leave the Job. Dole is bitter about the development and has said so pointing out repeatedly the dangers of having in High places people who Are too non responsive and insensitive to Public i opinion and who never have been forced to operate on a Public mandate basis. The evidence is that sen. Dole has emerged from the watergate scandal clean and free of taint and that he has Little i trouble convincing Kansas voters of that. But when he admits that it s better to mend fences now than wait until there must be other reasons he needs to work. As for Docking Dole says i Hope he does run against be had a gut feeling All along that Docking would make the Senate race in 1974 and i Welcome the Chance to meet him. I do editor s note Tom think however he ought to commit himself before too Long. He s Thompson former editor of the under some pressure because of other possible candidates like Amarillo Tex Globe times Bill Roy and Vern Miller attorney and a vice president and let s face three Are Good candidates and i la have to director of Globe publishing work hard to beat any of them. But i be got a lot of things going co., is a guest columnist for for me in Washington that they Don to and whoever i face i la Jayhawk today. Globe readers certainly dwell on that in the Are familiar with his writings Dole has never been one to Dodge controversy challenges and from past articles he has issues and his remarks indicate he has t changed that he s still written for the Globe. Before the same direct person.
