Storing Extra Gasoline in Cars Is Dangerous
It's only natural for motorists to be con
cerned about running out of gasoline these days,
but carrying a spare supply inside the car or in
the trunk is dangerous. One gallon of gasoline
has the explosive power of 14 sticks of dynamite.
The risk of rear-end collisions makes carrying
gasoline in the trunk particularly dangerous.
We recommend that gasoline never be stored
inside a home or apartment. If necessary to do
so, it should be kept in a garage or other well-
ventilated area, away from possible sources of
ignition, such as water heaters.
Waste Not, Want Not. . .

And that's what waste is all about. It's not
a question of being cheap or stingy. It's a ques

In these days of shortages ranging from
wheat to energy, one does not throw out the end

when the family is in the living room. That is

Each costs only pennies. Added up, however,
the dollars accumulate, dollars that would help
make your organization stronger.
Can any organization today afford not to
save its pennies?
Cost Of Absenteeism
The average American worker is abseiR
from his job 9 days each year for reasons
ranging from commuting problems to alcoholism
and including plain irresponsibility, a business
survey has revealed. This absenteeism costs
employers an average of $146, 30 annually for
each person on their payrolls.
These and other conclusions were drawn
from a study of on-job absenteeism and lateness
conducted by Prentice-Hall, Inc. , in cooperation
with the American Society for Personnel Admin'
istration. The survey covered 931 firms.
According to this survey, wages lost due to
absenteeism would amount to 9 days' pay for
every American worker.
