Lyth goe. chief of the division of food and drugs of the state department of public health. ! announced yesterday that during the year ending Nov. .'SO, his department t:as exam ined 1.42'. samples of moonshiae liquor .submitted by the police. The average al coholic strength found in these samples was 1"..40 as compared with 1 .'.." I in ltlS. The quality of the various kinds of "home-brew" submitted has not improved during the year. "It's the raw stuff." said Mr. Lythaoe. "and plainly the work of those unfamiliar with the art of distillation. The only way the liquor now being put out can be im proved is to let it ripen for four or five years. It is doubtful, however, if this will ever be d ne. because the consumer won't wait that long." Mr. Lythgoe. who is one of the foremost chemists in the country, said that the pies j cut output could be improved if the makers ( knew anything about blending, but this! appears to be an unknown science to ! them. All in all. he thinks the efforts of! the home-brewers pretty crude.
