ALVIN LACY WILLIAMS, Attorney for Petitioner, 649-651 Rogers Bldg., Mt. Vernon, Illinois. 11-11 By Associated Prist SPRINGFIELD, 111. - Republicans are favored to keep control of the Illinois Senate for another two years in the Nov. 4 election. Even top Democratic leaders say privately there is slight chance of upsetting the voting majority which the GOP has held in the Senate since 1941. Twenty-six of the Senate's 51 seats are at stake in the election, including the vacancy left by the death last January of Wallace Thompson of Galesburg, Republican majority leader. Thompson represented the 43rd District. All the other districts electing senators are even-numbered. Solons from 25 odd-numbered districts are at the midway point in their four-year terms. With 14 holdovers Republicans need winners in only 12 races to build the ^6-vote total required for control. But GOP strategists are counting on doing better than that and perhaps keeping something like the 31-20 margin of the 1951 session. Democrats, with 11 seats assured for another two years, would have to pick up 15 more to gain their first majority since 1939. Of the 20 incumbents seeking re-election, 12 are Republicans and eight are Democrats. Newcombres are battling it out to succeed six solons, who died, retired or ran for a different office. Besides Thompson, these vacancies were left by William E. Wayland of Danville, the late Edward E. Laughlin of Freeport, Wilbur J. Cash of Towanda. Ray Paddock of Wauconda and John J. Parish of Centralia. Parish is the only Democrat. The contest for Thompson's place pits Ralph Hawthorne, Galesburg Democrat, against Albert Scott of Canton, who won the Republican nomination in a special primary against three "opponents, including Thompson's widow and Rep. Kenneth J. Peel of Galesburg. Three Republican House members are bidding for vacated Senate seats in the 8th, 12th and 22nd Districts. All are rated good chances'for victory. They are Rep. Robert McClory of Lake Bluff, opposed by Charles C. Lucas of Fox Lake; Rtep. Marvin F. Burt of Freeport aligned against Melvin A. Fetscher of Freeport, and Rep. John S. Meyer of Danville, whose Democratic opponent is Veryle Haas of Danville. Contending for Cash's seat are Republican David Davis of Bloomington and Cecil R. Cone, Democratic mayor of that city. Marlon County Fight Parish's spot will go either to Democratic Oscar L. Hawkins of J Salem, a former Marion County clerk, or to Dwight P. Fredrich of Centralia. Among incumbents facing reportedly stiff challenges are Sen. Robert J. Young (D-Hurst) and Kent Lewis (D-Robinson). Rep.
