Hint to Motorists Most motorists use friction tape when repairing a leaky radiator hose, but heat and water soon dissolve the adheisye if tape alone is used.

Li is unpopular with the Nationalists because he was acting president at the time of unsuccessful peace talks with the Reds in 1949. He went to the United Slates and when Chiang resumed the presidency on Formosa in 1950 Li called him a usurper. Chiang has been president three terms, but the present one, starting in 1948, is the first under constitutional government, . It is possible that two minority parties—the Young China party and the Democratic Socialists—will run candidates against him. But their chances for success are considered negligible.
