Queen Elizabeth had an engagement keeping her away from the pulace until 4 p.m. Churchill usually calls on the monarch at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays. But he could go earlier today to present his resignation. There was a good possibility lhat the Prime Minister's office would announce the change in time for the 6 p.m. British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) nev/KctiKl. Only on Kadlo Unless the London newspaper strike Is settled today, the BBC alone could bring the news to the British capital's eight million resident*. The city's nationally-circulated papers have been shut down for 2 days by a walkout of maintenance men. The BBC last night said the resignation of Churchill and the succession of Eden were "believed in Parliamentary lobbies to be extremely imminent." The government-sponsored radio and television service previously had carried only passing references to the expected changes. Last night Sir Winston and Ludy Churchill entertained the. Queen ond the Duke of Edmburgh at a resplendent dinner parly for 50 persons at No. 10 Downing St. It was the first time in Elizabeth's reign that she lias attended such an affair. To Go To Sicily Rumors that Churchill's retirement wa.s Imminent—heard several times in recent years—popped up again last month when it was announced that he would take his first real vacation in 18 months. He Is to leave for Sicily April 12. The reports gained prominent play in London newspapers before the strike. Not oiuu- hn.s Churchill unequivocally denied them. Day after day on the green-carpeted floor of Commoiis, he lias responded to pointed Laborlte questions about the rcporLs with cryptic witticisms and rapid-fire repartee. Once lie offered the advice that people flbould not be "misled by ail the chatter in the press." Although there need not he a general election until October, 1050, It Is widely felt that a new Prime Minister should seek a mandate from the country soon. May. June and October have been mentioned as likely dates. A retiring Prime Minister also offers the queen the resignations nf all of his Cabinet. This customary move gives the new Prime Minister a free hand In selecting Ills ministers. Eden, however, was expected to make few changes immediately. Churchill begun his often stormy political career in 1(100 under Queen Victoria.
