I wrote the President on Friday, respectfully requesting the withdrawal of my nomination. Furthermore, while I should have been glad to appear before jour committee If It had deemed a confcrenei! with alt o the nominees necessary to -aide Its action, I feel that I should not do so after one other .nomlnto and' myelt have been singles out for examination, Inasmuch as my willingness lo sere upon the Federal Itcscno Hoard was based upon the hope that the Senate would appreciate my motives In ac cepting the otllco and would unre rervedly extend to nin that full sup port and eonlldenre which should be enjoyed by all members of the boird If It Is to effectively fufni Its mil lion.

If there had be.cn any. doubt about un favorable, notion by tho committee on th Wurburg nomination It Is now believed to bo removed, und If the President suc ceeds In inducing tho New York banker to reconsider nnd to permit Ills name tu leinaln before the committee It is almost certain that an unfavorable reiort will bt m.ule uixJii It.

He explained, however, that Kuhn, I.oeb & Co. wero readjustment managers of tho Manhattan Hallway Company, that they undertook this rcuponslblllty by agreement, and that ono member of tho firm had continued to act ns a director of the Manhattan rompany to se that the agreement was faithfully observed. The Committee on Hanking and Cur rency will meet to-morrow, Tt had ex lected to hear Xlr. Warburg at that time. The first business before the committee when It convenes will be to lay formally before the committee the substance of Xlr. Warburg's telrgram. If his nomination has not 6sen irlth- iA13UCi- ill ii nil before the committee meets to morrow an unfiivoiable report may be made by the committee on both tlo Jon.cs and Warburg nominations.

Tcltphuiko communication took placo this afternoon between the White House and Mr, Warburg In an effort to Induce him to reconsider.
