GASOLINE PRICES NEVER HAVE TO SAY THEY ARE SORRY

Gasoline is costing you and me more and more each day. It is possible that a tiny country in South America might eventually help lower our gasoline price, and, at the same time, eliminate much of it’s terrible poverty.

But there was a second assassination attempt that dreadful evening, which  fewer people know about. It was aimed at Secretary of State William H.
