The Safety of Iltlium The reason for Lieutenant Settle's certainty lies in the fact that the American airship now afloat and that being built, as well A v»v»fVI**il as the ZRS-5 which is planned -lor I •£» 1 IHU1C/1 future construction, have.helium as ! their lifting gas. Helium is a noninflammable gas extracted from certain natural gas fields, particularly in Texas and Oklahoma Its r?sulinnt surety against fire or explosion, such as caused the R-101 disaster, gives any ship in which it is a part a factor of safety of primary importance. "The Los Angeles can't possibly burn up or explode," says Lieutenant Se:th." Neither will the Akron, when It is completed. The United States has been fortunate in having large sources of this gas. while it is extremely rare and costly ,_ ,„, ner, Mrs. and Mr. Ely Culbertson (ihe latter is team captain), and Waldeman Von Zedtwitz.
