By RADFORD E. MOBLEY Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON, March 18.--Two lowans have been urged upon President Hoover for appointment to the federal farm board vacancy, causec by resignation of former Chairmat Alexander Legge, it was learned here today. They are Charles E. Hearst, president of the Iowa Farm Bureau federation and J. A. Wallis of Derango Wallis is a former president of the Iowa Dairy association. An Omaha banker, Walter, Head, prominent In Washington news of past months thru a campaign to place him in the chairmanship of the republican 'national committee and thru his part in the Nye committee investigation, has also been suggested to the president as a business representative of the board. . · Want Money Man. So pronounced has become .the agitation from large financial interests for the selection of a man to represent them, that serious efforts have been made to procure appointment of Bernard Baruch, New York magnate and democratic angel of long standing-. There la little probability, however,' _J;he president would name Baruch, even if he turned to financial circles to fill the membership vacancy, according to those conversant with the situation Hence, friends of Head see a strong likelihood that he will' turn to the Omahan. \ Others whose names have been presented to the president, it was learned from other sources, include: Earl Smith, president of the Illinois Agricultural'association. George Jewett, Chicago banker and former president of the Pacific Northwest Wheat Growers' association. Lang Suggested. The name of F. W. Lang, president of the St. Louis First National bank was presented to the president by C. B. Denman, livestock member of the board, last week, but since that time Lang's wife has become seriously ill, probably removing him as a pjrofepective appointee. There is little prospect that any announcement in the matter come from the white house before President Hoover returns from his vacation expedition to the Caribbean. The present view is that no choice will be made within the month. Those who have discussed the matter with him indicate that the appointment is worrying Mr. Hoover more than any he has made within recent months, and that considerable time will be spent in studying the available candidates. · No Recommendation. The meeting in Chicago this week of the board of the American Farm Bureau federation will probably result in that organization selecting the candidate it will proffer for the president's consideration. Chester Gray, Washington representative o£ , the federation, said today no Farm Bureau recommendation has been made. Past precedent would indicate that the federation will submit number of names. The pressure for the appointment of a "business, representative," on j %££, ; tK as furnishing a link with large busl| ness. . In view of the stock market terprises of the board this agita lion has now developed to such point that writers of "inside" f nancial information here were dls| cussing the prospect in their "let! ters" this week.
