Churchill to Be Host to Queen
At 'Farewell' Dinner Tonight
LONDON. April 4 UP). —Sir
Winston Churchill made ready
to entertain Queen Elizabeth II
at dinner tonight, and most
Britons believed it was the last
time the 80-year-old statesman
would be host to his young sov
ereign as Britain’s Prime Min
ister.
Observers and members of
Parliament generally expected
the veteran Conservative chief to
drive to Buckingham Palace to
morrow or Wednesday and hand
his resignation to the Queen.
She is considered certain to sum
mon Foreign Secretary Anthony
Eden to take over the top post
for which he has waited so long
Tonight the Queen and the
Duke of Edinburgh were to dine
with Sir Winston and his wife
at the Prime Minister’s official
residence. No. 10 Downing street.
The rarity of the occasion was
viewed as still more evidence
that the old man finally was
stepping down.
Anticipation of the changeover
stirred a buzz of speculation
about the date for the next gen
eral election, which the new gov
ernment chief must decide.
Until this week end, October
had been regarded as the most
likely month. Talk was general
in the lobbies of Parliament to
day that the polling might take
place May 26.
There also were conflicting re
ports about Sir Winston’s plans
He is scheduled to fly to
Sicily April 12 for a 16-day va
cation. It has been indicated
that when he returns, he will
hold his membership in the
House of Commons and sit on
the back benches as an elder
statesman.
But this would be a delicate role
for a man of such great prestige.
Political observers agreed it
might damage the Conserva
tives’ election chances if Sir
Stephens to Address
Fairfax Democrats
An affair that might well be
billed as “Jefferson-Jackson Day
Dinner—Part II” will be staged
by the Fairfax County Demo
cratic Committee at 7:30 p.m.
April 16 in Hunting Towers,
Alexandria.
Lt. Gov. A. E. S. Stephens of
Virginia will speak. Mr.
Stephens, identified with the
conservative Byrd organization
in the party, is among those
prominently mentioned as candi
dates for Governor in 1957.
Fairfax Democrats earlier had
another potential gubernatorial
candidate address them. Dele
gate Robert Whitehead of
Nelson County, leader of the
anti-organization wing of the
party, spoke to them on George
Washington’s birthday.
Chairman Guy M. Bayes said
tickets for the dinner may be
obtained by those interested

Winston appeared to be steering
Sir Anthony once the latter had
taken over.
Some members of Parliament
think Sir Winston will make only
infrequent visits to the House, or
even accept a peerage and move
to the House of Lords.
The switch at the top of the
government was expected to
bring no upheaval in the make
up of the rest of the cabinet. If
Bir Anthony plans an early elec
tion, he may make almost no
changes and may even for a time
should the double load of Prime
Minister and Foreign Secretary.
