Download PDF for this date

Bernard M. Baruch may become chairman of the commission which is to make recommendations for the development of Saratoga Springs as a health spa when he returns from his trip abroad, according to indications by Governor Roosevelt here yesterday. Mr. Baruch was chairman of the War industries Board during 1918 and was later connected with the American Commission to Negotiate Peace.

Among the six members of the commission to survey the possibilities of Saratoga Springs who have already been appointed is Henry Morgenthau, former American Ambassador to Turkey. George Foster Peabody has been temporarily named as chairman.
