Vernon on House Group Studying Redittricting. By AisoclaUd Prtit SPRINGFIELD, III., June 29.— Illinois legislators today fumbled for an answer to how they should redraw the state's 26 existing Con- gro.ssiona) districts into 25 new onos, The Senate and House approved conflicting plans with the result that a .joint legislative conference committee was named to iron out riiMcrences. TInless a settlement is reached, Illinois candidates for the national House would have to run from the state at large in November, 1952. The House arrangement is objectionable to friends of Congressman Charles W Vur.sell, Salem Republican, who would be thrown into a sprawling new territory with Congressman Peter Mack ot C orlinville, a Democrat The Senate proposal would put Macoupin counl-y, where Mack resides, into the piesent district of Congre.s.sman Sid Simpson, Car- j-nlltcn Repiiblican. Simpson supporters in the legislature are cool toward this version as are lawmakers interested in Conp;vessman Edward H, Jenison of Paris, a Republican. Jenison would have to campaign from the Indiana line to Springfield in the district carved out for him. The committee working on a compromise includes these five Senators: Arthur Bidwill (R-River Forest), Victor McBroom (R- Kankakee).) Arthur Van Hooser (R-Metropolis),) Robert Young fD-Hurst) )and Timothy Donnelly (D-Carlinvillo). Lee On Committee Named to represent the House were Reps. Dave Hunter (R-Rockford),) Roi:)crt J. Bran.son (R-Centralia), Robert Burhams (R- Peoria),) Clyde Lee (D-Mt. Vernon and Paul Ferguson (D-Decatur). Because of national population shifts, the Illinois Congressional delegation will be reduced by one next y'ear.

By Assoeiatod Press SPRINGFIELD, 111., June 29.— A one cent incrca.se in the state gasoline tax, a two cent increase or none at all—that was the No. 1 issue facing the Illinois legislature today as final adjournment closed in. The first step—and possibly the last—in reaching a decision was a scheduled House vote on whether to reverse its stand for a four cent tax and accept instead Governor Stevenson's nickel proposal. Senate refusal yesterday to go along on the four cent plan developed by the House Republican majority kept the question in the balance. The Senate endorsed five cents on June 12. If the House backs down, the nickel gas tax automatically clears the Assembly and advances to Governor Stevenson. If it sticks by its guns, then a Senate-House conference commit tee will be set up to attempt an adjustment of dfiferences between tho two branches. In the event a conference group failed to come up with a solution acceptable to both Senate and Hou .HO, a second committee would be appointed. Failure of its recommendations would mean the gas tax would stay at the present throe cents a gallon. The four cent levy would bring in an estimated ,$80,000,000 in revenues for a road building program. The nickel tax would produce $100,000,000.
