By ROSEMARY RYAN}
Were the United States supply of
lac from India to be cut off due to
present war'conditions, the American
Southwest would probably be able to
supply enough for domestic consump-
tion for at least a limited period of
time, according to Valney H. Jones,
University anthropologist.
Lac, the basic ingredient of varn-
ish, shellac, sealing wax and other
necessary industrial products, has
been used in India for centuries, ex-
plained Mr. Jones. Because the sup-
ply is plentiful and labor cheap, the
Orient has been the chief exporter of
lac. If a blockade or other war con-
ditions were to threaten the importa-
tion of this commodity, the United
States would have to look to her own
resources to satisfy her demands.
Examination Suggested
Whether or riot the supply is com-
mercially profitable is at present dif-
ficult to determine. Mr. Jones sug-
gests an examination of the American
lac, and possible means for increase
as an important measure to meet
any emergency that might arise in
Europe.
Mr. Jones, in his studies of the lac
as used by the American Indians, has
investigated the distribution of the lac
producing insects in this, country.
This material is widely spread
throughout Arizona, New Mexico and
California, but not very highly con-
centrated in one spot. Although the
United States will never be indepen-
dent of India for the supply of lac,
it ,would be profitable to determine
the extent of the domestic supply, if,
in'any case, the Oriental crop is not
available.
In 1880 lac was analyzed and was
Famed Orator

considered identical with that from
India in its properties. However, that
research was never fully completed.
Mr. Jones stresses the importance of
a thorough examination of the pres-
ent supply and a comparison of the
results.
Insect Is Source
The source of lac is a tiny insect
that lives upon the twigs of certain
trees and bushes, Mr. Jones explains.
The Oriental and American lac in-
sects, although differing somewhat
in species, produce lacs that are sim-
ilar in chemical and physical sub-
stance. After the lacis removed from
the bushes and refined, the residue
is soluble in alcohol and is used es-
pecially in wood finishing.
Mr. Jones has found that the Amer-
ican Indians of the Southwest region
had used lac for several years for
purposes other than those common-
ly associated with it. It was a chief
ingredient of many of their medi-
cines. Melted, the lac became adhesive
and strong enough to mend pottery
and fasten shafts into arrow heads.
As a plastic, it formed the handles
for many instruments, and was
shaped into ornaments and balls.
This suggests a sealing wax quality
rather than lac.
Used By Indians
In archaeological sites in the
Southwest, it was used by the In-
dians in their art work, according to
Mr. Jones. Baskets were covered with
lac and then paint. Later lac was
utilized as an inlay. Clay ornaments
or pottery were cut into groves of
various designs, filled with lac and
then painted. Here again it held the
material together rather than acting
as a separate color. Archaeologically,
lao in Arizona dates back to the 12th
century.
