5. Approximately 2,000,000 gallons. The bulk of this alcohol was made from molasses imported by the government in 1941 for government projects. This was turned over to distillers for conversion into alcohol at a cost of 22 cents per gallon of alcohol, which price represented actual cost and a small profit for
