New York. May B. Herbert Hoover
Issut d a statement here today in which
he expressed surprise that 'under the
"circumstances so large a vote should
liave been cast in California for the
delegates favoring my nomination."
"For my friends, in entering my
name, introduced no personal Issue
but asked an opportunity to register a
protest at Senator Johnson's extreme
opposition to any league to prevent
warand reduce armaments." said the
statement. "With a group of amateur
-4'lubs only a month old, they were of
rour.se handicapped in opposing the
regular party organization but the real
.'situation is that the people of Call
fornia have been much torn between
loyalty and friendship to their senator
tor his able rescue of the state during
his governorship from vicious corpora
tion control .and hi too narrow virion
on our international necessities. The
fact that In these circumstances more
than a third of the ' party protested
against this latter view should
strengthen the support of the repub
lican majority In the senate."
