Explosions such as destroyed Britain s ZR-2 and America's Roma will be impossible if Currenium comes into common use it is claimed. It is as safe to handle as helium, Dr Cuiren said and can be manufactured without the almost prohibitive cost of that gaa ' The United States government estimates the cost of producing helium at $130 per thousand cubic feet," said George B Harrison, an official of the company which is perfecting Dr Curren's discovery "Helium can only be pioduced In the Texas-Kansas oil fields ' Currenium, on the other hand, can be manufactured commercially, some- w h a t as oxygen is produced foi welding and the cost of production H The of A "airway ers Chicago THE The CORSET Room 313 Morrison Blclgf.
