Yes you can use the second AirPort Express to extend the wireless range of the first one using a wireless connection between them. Please check out the following Apple Support article for details. Also you can do the extended network setup from the AirPort Utility on the iPad.

Ok but how do you set up using IPAD? I do not see the option to extend and when I plug in AP Express to extend it does not show up on network map?

Assuming that you already have one AirPort Express A1264 set up to "create a wireless network".......and the second is still set to use new factory default settings......
On the iPad home screen.....
Tap Settings, then Tap WiFi
Under the heading of Setup a new AirPort Base Station, tap on AirPort Express
AirPort Setup will take care of the rest. All that you need to do is enter a device name for the new Express when prompted and click Next.
Under Easy Setup, click on the iPhone and iPad tab for more information using the link below:

Problem is I have two A1084 model AExpress (which I hate to have to toss) that the Ipad Utility does not recognize with my new Airport Extreme "tower" network base station.

Unfortunately, the iPad cannot be used to configure those older versions of the Express.
You will need a 5.x version of AirPort Utility on a Mac or a PC to be able to configure the older Express models.
Once the Express devices are setup and configured, the iPad will be able to connect to the wireless network, but it cannot be used to make any changes to the configuration of the A1084 Express.
