LaRue Plans
Bolivian Tour
Rubber Research Is Aim
Of University Botanist
Commissioned by the Department
of Agriculture. Dr. Carl D. LaRue
of the botany department will con-
duct a six-month expedition in the
wilds of Bolivia to discover methods
of cultivation of a new type of
"black rubber" important in United
States defensse plans.
The "black rubber" plant, which
has never been cultivated, yields in
wild growth a considerably larger
supply per tree and is of better quali-
ty than the variety now cultivated.
Prof. LaRue, the only American sci-
entist who has made an extensive
study of black rubber, will survey
the possibilities of planting the
trees in the rubber region of Bolivia.
Leave of absence from his teach-
ing duties for the first semester was
granted to Prof. LaRue by the Board
of Regents last week. The expedi-
tion will be composed of Prof. LaRue,
another American botanist yet to be
selected, and a group of South A-
merican natives.
LaRue declared the aims of the
project to be: "making a survey of
the possibilities of rubber cultiva-
tion in Bolivia; inspecting lands suit-
able for rubber culture; determin-
ing the site for an experimental sta-
tion in cooperation with the Boliv-
ian governmentment; and collecting
and sending out seeds, bud wood and
stumps for planting in experiment
stations sin Central America and
South America.
