building on the Gulf coast is boom-
ing just as it was before the armis-
tice was signed. The number of work-
ers has not been reduced.
Government contracts held by the
four yards in Beaumont and two in
Orange, Tex., for vessels for which
the keel had not yet been laid, were
abandoned, but there were about 40
ships in the two ports in various
stages of completion and work on
them is continuing. The ending of
the war had no effect whatever on
one yard at Orange which is building
ships for the Italian government.

Can molasses explode?
Prof. Walter L. Badger, of the
chemical engineering department, be-
lieves it can. In his opinion it was
the fermentation of molasses that
caused the death of 12 men in Boston

bating the cause of this catastrophe,
holding either 'that molasses itself
was the cause, or that the tank burst

Professor Badger believes that mo-
lasses, if allowed to ferment, pro-,
fduces a gas. This gas being com-!
pressed in an airtight tank will, if
left long enough, generate a powerful
pressure. Therefore the fermentation
of 2,000,000 gallons of molasses would,
without doubt, produce enough gas to
cause the explosion.
