By HARRY LUNN
Republican chances to gain a
Senate majority in the fall elec-
tion are exceedingly slim, accord-
ing to George Peek of the political
science department.
"In the first place," Peek said,
"only 14 Democrats must run for
re-election, while 20 Republicans
have to come before the voters
this year."
. * *
WITH THIS situation, Peek
noted, Democrats enter the fall
race having 36 hold-over Senators
whose terms will not run out until
1954 or 1956, but Republcans only
retain 26 seats.
To make matters worse for
the GOP, the 20 Republicans
are not sure re-election bets,
while most of the 14 Democrats
come from politically secure
Southern states.

Peek regards only three Demo-
cratic contests as doubtful-those
in Maryland, New Mexico and
Michigan. In Michigan Sen. Blair
Moody, who was appointed by
Gov. Williams to fill out the term
of the late*Senator Vandenberg,
will be running for election. Indi-
cations are that his GOP oppon-
ent might be State Auditor Gen-
eral John B. Martin, who is al-
ready waging a strong campaign..
BUT TO GAIN a Senate major-
ity, Republicans must re-elect all
their candidates and pick up three
seats now held by Democrats. If
they can't pick up these three
doubtful vacancies, they will have
to wrest seats from strong Demo-
cratic states.

According to Peek, the GOP
will have a fight on its hands
merely to re-elect such men as
Sen. Kem of Missouri, Sen.
Bricker of Ohio, Sen. Malone of
Nevada, and Sen. Kane of
Washington.
"With this in mind," Peek con-
cluded, "the optimistic Republi-
cans should note that Democrats
have a chance at holding the Sen-
ate even if the nation elects a
Republican president, and even if
the GOP succeeds in winning the
Senate, they will only hold it by
a narrow margin."
"However," Peek added, "Eisen-
hower is apparently a good vote
getter, and if he were the nominee
he might be able to carry the
doubtful states better than Taft."

TOUGH RACE AHEAD:
Peek Says Republican Senate Doubtful

WHOLE BLOOD-Wayne Willis Glas, '46, a captain in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, Mobile Army
Surgical Hospital 8076 in Korea, is shown administering whole blood to an unidentified wounded Am-
erican soldier. Commenting on the University's al1-campus blood drive, Glas, a former member of
the department of surgery of University Hospital, said, "Whole blood in forward hospitals has resulted
in the survival of many soldiers who in previous w ars would not have been expected to live."
