Eisenhower said today the mounting numbers of my fellow citizens who -ire vot ing to make me the Republican nominee" may cause' him to to political office. General Elsenhower issued an* informal statement at his headquarters in response to requests by reporters for comment on the Minnesota primary Tuesday in which more than 100,000 voters wrote in his name in the Republican preferential primary. The statement said: "You gentlemen probably realize how astonished I was by the results of t-!ie Minnesota primary." Examination Forced "The mounting numbers of my fellow citizens who are voting to make me the Republican nominee are forcing me to re-examine my personal position find past decision. "I did not imagine that so n-fy voters in Minnesota would make me a write-in candidate and, according to newspaper accounts, some of them had trouble with my name. "I count it an additional compliment that some refused to be dismayed by the long Eisenhower name and simply wrote in 'ike.' " Statement Draws Reference Eisenhower's reference to his "personal position- and past decisions" apparently referred to a statement he issued Jan. 7. the day after his backers announced they would enter him in tire Ne«- Hampshire primary. Referring to that statement, made by Senator Henry Cabot "Lodge, head of the Eisenhower For President movement, Eisenhower said then that Lodge was correct In terming him B Republican and added: "He was also correct in stating that I would not seek nomination to political office."
