Four of the five people injured in Cornell's chemical explosion on Sunday have been released from the infirmary; the fifth person is in "good" condition at Ithaca Hospital.
Raymond W. seidel, Cornell's Supervisor of Safety, said yesterday that rarely used chemicals stored in a small "doghouse" on the east wing roof of Savage Hall ignited probably "due to weather changes and high humidity."
Firemen and student bunkers attempted to extinguish the flames with water, whereupon a quart of hydrochloric said, a half pound of metalic sodium, two and a half pounds of lithium bromide, and five gallons of faming sulfuric acid exploded.
As a result of Sunday's episode, chemicals not presently in use will now be kept in underground storage recess.
