"It looks a little complicated at first, but actually It's easier once you get tbe hang of it," Holland said in an interview. Holland, president of a company with stations from San Jose to Lake Tahoe, has started California's first pilot project to familiarize customers with the metric system. "Now, when a customer drives into the Niles station for five gallons of gasoline, he'll ask for 19 liters, the closest metric equivalent, and it'll shov. on the gas pump," he said. Holland is conducting the experiment in cooperation with the Alameda County Department of Weights and Measures which has responsibility for the accuracy of gasoline pump computers. The department will use data from the project when drawing up regulations for metric computers. Holland said most nations adopted the metric system long ago because it is considered simpler and more accurate thar. older methods of measure ment. The system was developed by French scientists and adopted as France's legal system of weights and measures in 1799. Congress made it legal but not mandatory in the United States in 1866. "Conversion was slow in coming, but now it's upon us," Holland said.

Wichita attorney William Farmer, lobbyist for Energy Transportation Systems, Inc., said rejection by Nebraska, and now Kansas, leaves the company with no feasible route for the line, planned to carry crushed coal in water solution from Wyoming strip mines to a proposed Arkansas Power Light Co. plant at White BLuff. He said attempting to run the ETSI line the next closest route -- through Colorado, then east across the length of Oklahoma --would be too expensive. A statement from ETSI's San Francisco headquarters expressed regret at the Kansas Senate decision. "Coal will become increasingly important as a fuel for generating electricity and slurry pipelines are a highly competitive method of holding down the costs of transporting that coal," the ETSI statement said.

The eminent domain authority -- the power to condemn land for the pipeline right of way -- basically was needed to cross railroad lines in the state. . Sen. Jack Janssen, D-Lyons, who made the motion to strike the bill from the calendar, said his main concern was water depletion. He said reports the pipeline would use brackish water, no good for other uses, were wrong. Janssen said the pipeline would divert 15,000 acre feet per year from the water supply beneath farms and ranches in South Dakota. "We worry about one area of energy, but we're ignoring a prime need, water," Janssen said. "I don't want to waste any."
