ORRELL COUNTY AUDITOR HIGGINS PROMISES 500 HOMES DAILY New Orleans Boat Builder Has New Process For Fire-Proof Houses WASHINGTON, Feb. 18.—(U.R)— Andrew J. Higgins, New Orleans boat builder, said Monday night that if the government will co operate he can build indestructible, fire-proof houses at the rate of 500 a day. He said that, thanks to a con crete formula so secret he hasn’t bothered to patent it, his houses would be 20 per cent cheaper and immeasurably better than ordinary construction. He said that for two months he has been negotiating, without suc cess, for purchase of the Higgins aircraft plant in New Orleans, which he operated during the war. He confers with War assets cor poration officials again Tuesday. The Higgins house would be built of thermo-con, which is concrete plus air bubbles infused by a secret process. The bubbles add perfect insulation to structural strength, Higgins said. He said a crew of seven un trained women and one man who can read blueprints can erect a Higgins house in six working days. A five-room house would cost $4,200. Maximum rate of production can be reached within six months after a contract with a plant is signed with War Assets corporation, Hig gins asserted.
