No Cover Charge DELAY MEETING TONAMEPREXY State Board of Education to Convene Probably on April 17. IOWA CITY, April 5. (jP)--Post- ponement of the meeting of .the state board of education to consider appointment of a successor to President Walter A. Jessup of the University of Iowa was announced last night by George T. Baker of Davenport, president. It will probably be held April 17. W. R. Boyd of Cedar Rapids, member of the faculty committee, has been reported interviewing possible appointees in the east. Postponement of the meeting will give the board tune for consideration of candidates outside the faculty of the university. Attempts are being made to interest "a desirable man from outside the faculty," before Jessup leaves the university to become head of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, although board members have admitted difficulty. The most serious handicap, it is felt, is a salary limitation of S10,- 000 set by the legislature.
