5-' Explosives ' : talk by John Read , F.R.S., Professor of Chemistry in the University of St. Andrews-
Besides their destructive abuses in war, explosives have constructive uses of the highest value in peace, when many vital industrial and engineering operations such as quarrying, mining, tunnelling, road and railway construction, utilise hundreds of thousands of tons of explosives every year.
Under proper control, explosives have an unrivalled capacity for doing useful work, as the Simplon Tunnel and the Panama Canal, to name but two examples, bear witness.
