nouw, who has just returned from the
Far East, says that the Philippines,
offer no solution to the problem, be- ,
cause the natives there would not be
willing to work in the plantations,
and it would be necessary to import
The same opinion 'was expressed by.
Prof. Carl D. La Rue, of the botany de-'
partment, who for three years was in
Sumatra as an investigator for the
United States Rubber- company, and
was head of a United States govern-
ment expedition to study the growing!
of rubber in the Amazon valley in 1923.
He outlined four disadvantages of
the Philippines, saying, that in addi-
tion to the labor difficulty, only part
of the islands have the proper clim-
ate. The land laws, limiting holdings
by one individual or com-
pany to 1200 acres, would hinder the
development of plantations, and the
questionable political status of the is-
lands makes capitalists wary of in-
vestment, there, he believes.
"American captial," Professor LaI
Rue continued, "has not been inter-I
ested in rubber for some years. This
is partly due to a campaign of in
vestment in Mexican rubber ventures,
most of which proved false, and the
remainder of which failed because
they used the wrong tree. That gave
the United States a bad taste about
rubber. This is shown by the fact
that the United States Rubber com-
pany, when it started investing inI
Sumatra, did not sell stock especially
for the rubber venture, but used its
own finances, making the plantations
branches of the main company."
Professor La Rue opposes Secre-
tary Hoover's opinion that Great Brit-
ain is deliberately trying to enrich it-
self at the expense of the United
States by controlling the price of rub-
ber, and explained that England's po-
sition is economically a logical one.
The Stevenson act, limiting the pro-
duction of rubber and thus raising the
price, was passed only to save the es-
tates from being abandoned, for the

Methods of raising rubber such that
machines could be used to cultivate
the plants and treat the product, have

before been duplicated in the United
States, Martin M. White, of Temple,
Tex., instructor in psychology at the
University of Texas, is conducting an
experiment to measure intensity of

in, the arm. Advanced students in
psychology are acting as subjects for
the experiment, the complexity of the
apparatus effecting the validity of the
result 'were inexperienced subjects'
The apparatus consists of a plethy-
smograph, an instrument for record-
ing changes of blood in the arm; a
machine which records the rate and
change of breathing; a blood pres- I
sure apparatus, and a lip key which
measures the time it takes for the
subject to react to a word given him
by the experimentor.
