Issue(s): Hulk #231
The hippie, Fred Sloan, invites the Hulk to crash at his house. Unfortunately, the next morning the Hulk freaks out his girlfriend, who rushes out to call the police (leaving behind the beans and scrambled eggs she was making... Hulk loves beans).
Sloan and the Hulk flee town, stopping only for the Hulk to smash up a police roadblock. Fred Sloan is playing a role that could just as easily have been Rick Jones.
Meanwhile, two Senators show up at Gamma Base to figure out what the heck is going on down there.
One of them, Senator Eugen K. Stivak, is actually "Kligger", a member of The Corporation, the organization that has been plaguing Captain America. When he has a chance, he reveals himself to Karla Sofen and kidnaps Jim Wilson.
The other Senator, Andrew Hawk, was previously seen in the Mandarin story leading up to Iron Man #100.
I normally don't comment on this, but the cover for this issue, which shows the Hulk rampaging through a cocktail lounge, has absolutely nothing to do with this issue.
Quality Rating: B-
Chronological Placement Considerations: Takes place after Kligger announces he's leaving for Gamma Base in Captain America #228, and more or less concurrently with Captain America #229, culminating in a crossover in Captain America #230 and Hulk #232.
Continuity Insert? N

that looks like a Trimpe cover, to boot

Its out of the scope of this project, but Captain America picks Senator Hawk as his vice president in What If # 26.
