Boom Started for Former
' Ambassador by Califor
I Myron T. Herrick really is a candi
date for the Republican nomination
for the Presidency. Otherwise the Sac
ramento, California, Union would not
say so. That is the way Republican
politicians yesterday looked upon an
editorial printed in the Sacramento
Emphasis was given the editorial by
| the fact that Former Ambassador
I Herrick recently financed the deal by
i which the Sacramento paper was taken
oyer. It was rumored at first that
the Union had been bought by Her
bert Hoover for u>me of his former
associates, but the development that
Herrlck financed the dea! and that the
paper now springs his name for the
Presidency causes Republicans to be
lieve that the j?aper is the private
property of the OlUoan.
Naturally the following editorial has
caused Senator Harding, also of Ohio,
who is an a^p rant for the Presidency,
to do a lot of thinking;
"From a source which we regard as
highly reliable the Union has learned
that Myron T. Herrlck, former gov
ernor of Ohio, and former Ambassa
dor to Frnnce. is being quietly groom
ed for the Republican Presidential
"Herrlck is a standpatter, but unlike
the average member of that peculiar
diminishing group, he Is amenable to
change and must be reckoned with as
a power among the farmers. He was
appointed to the rural life commission
by President Roosevelt, and since that
t.me has devoted much of his time and
ability to the solution of agricultural
problems. His brief record as Ameri
can Ambassador to France made him
many friends, and his war-time work
added to his prestige. If the Repub
1 leans are determined to nominate a
standpatter they m.jfht do much worse
than select Herrick.''
