CONCRETE SHIP BELIEVED
NOW TO HAVE BIG F1JTURE
The limitasi possibilities of tb? con
crete ?hip, brought to their attention
by pioneer work on the Pacific Coast
in the construction of the concret?
?hip "Faith," have now becosae
limitless In the opinion of ths ex
pert? of th? United SUte? Shipping
? few month? ago the concrete
?hip was an experiment. Th? Ship
pins Board took op the experiment
the moment it was brought to th?ir
The Shipping Board announced
yesterday th? discovery of a novel
protective coating for th? new- fleet
ot concrete ?hips that the Emir?
frency Fleet Corporation is building
It gsve official aanction to the state
ment that this discovery will make
the new concrete ?hips aa durable
as th? big stesi vessi? now crowd
in?; the way? of th? shipyard? of the
country. R. J. Wig. chief enarra*?
ot the concreta ?hip division of the
Emergency Fleet Corporation Is the
man who gives ths expert opinion.
"Frcan our comprehensiva tests of
concrete structure? at ????water we
are assured that concret? ship? will
la?t a maximum of ?everal years
without any protection whatever. By
th? application of protective coat
ing? which are well known to u? we
are certain of an extended life of
?everal years additional. And with
th? further development of protec
tive mean? upon which we are now
working, I believe the concrete ?hip
can be made aa permanent aa ate?I. '
If not more so.
"At a meeting of the American Con
cret* Institute, held recently at At
lantic City, I was unfortunately mu
quoted aa saying that the concret?
?hip would last only one year. Of
course thl? I? not ?o. nor did I say
it. and I am anxious to have thia er
roneo??? statement corrected as soon
V? possible because It put? the con
crete ship In an utterly falae position.
"Few people realise that th? con
crete ?hip 1* actually 30 per cent
lighter than the wood ?hip. If built ot
a new concrete mixture developed by
the Emergency Fleet CorTwao??? Tli

is made ia so light thst it fissate on
water and yet tt make? a kind of opr
