Hague, now 13 and a veteran of nany rough and ready political battles since he first won a place on the city commission In 1813, faces one of the hardest fights In Ills long career In tomorrow's commission election. The ticket headed by his nephew and successor as mayor, Frank Hague Eegei'S, faces a strong challenge in the slate led by a former Hague ward leader, John V. Kenny. If the administration ticket vigorously backed by Hague wins, lie can continue as state Democratic leader and an Important figure in national democratic circles. But—n defeat In his own city probably would ccwt him the state leadership. A recent stale-wide convention of the party was marked by floor discussions of parly policy and other open challenges In HtiKiie's power. More important, however, a defeat would seriously Impair the dinners of the Dcmorratlc candidate, former Congrrsstnrw Elmer H. Wcnc, In the New .Jersey election for governor next November. Since Virginia, the only other slate electing a governor In 1949. usually clioo.sp.s its HO"t nor in the Demo- rallc primary, the fall election Is CKimled as nationally Important.
