READ THE WANT ADS Churchill Wins Nobel Prize For Memoirs STOCKHOLM, Sweden OR—The coveted Nobel Prize for literature was awarded today to British i Prime Minister Winston Churchill, ji who is credited with "mobilizing" j the English language during World. I War II. } It was an open secret that the ! 78-year-old Churchill, who has j dedicated his remaining years to \ the cause of world peace, would : have preferred the Nobel peace j prize. i ; But he was genuinely moved, ; friends said, when informed of his : selection for the world's highest literary distinction. Churchill's choice by the Swedish Academy of Literature, over such contenders as America's Ernest Hemingway, is worth $33,840 in prize money. The designation was made a month earlier than usual to enable Churchill to come to Stockholm to receive the prize from King Gustav Adolf on Dec. 10. Churchill, the first active statesman to be chosen for the award, received the prize for his five- volume war memoirs, "The Second World War." Churchill's fame in statescraft tended to obscure his remarkable 1 writing talents but he was, even before the turn of the century, the highest paid war correspondent of his time and author of several brilliant books on military campaigns. Churchill's wartime speeches rank among the greatest English writings of any era and his eulogy of the late King George VI was a literary gem of such measured majesty it seemed almost to have been written in blank verse. In all, Churchill's name appears as author on the cover of 33 volumes on such diverse subjects as painting, biography, travel, politics, military tactis, autobiography and even fiction. The wartime phrases reproduced in his memoirs have become liter-! ature as well as history. His veryj first address to the House after hej was appointed prime minister in, 1940 was regarded as worth a vie-! torious battle in morale effect.
