COURIBB KBWB PAGE ELEVEN Eden Takes Over As Prime Minister Obifuanf (Continued from Page 1) tfclana are expecting » vote as larly at May 26. Even while Eden was at the palace Leftwing Laborite rebel Aneurin Bevan cut loose with a political blast which tipped the line that many Socialist! are likely to take in the drive to unseat the Conservative party. "Scarcely adequate to meet the challenge of the new hydrogen »ge." Sevan wrote in tbe Weekly Tribune, adding; "The problem for Sir Anthony Eden is that he does not possess a personal ascendancy over the rest of his colleagues." "Committee Leadership" Therefore, Bevan charged, Britain is likely to pass from personal to "committee" leadership, with no strong hand at the helm. Eden, like Churchill a friend and staunch ally of the United States, was certain to carry out many of the policies he and his old chief worked out together in the years of their close partnership. That association began as far back as 1938, when Eden—then 41—quit the government of Neville Chamberlain in a dramatic protest against appeasing the Axis dictators. Churchill reappointed him to the foreign secretaryship soon after he took over as Prime Minister May 10 1940, eight months after the outset of World War n. Again when Churchill returned to No. 10 Downing St. in 1951 alter six years >f Laborit* rule in the country, ht war leader called bis protege to direct foreign relations. Their association w»s so close thit it ultimately led to t, merger f their two families. Eden divorced his first wife, the wealthy Beatrice Beckett, in 1850 on ground* ot desertion. Two years later he married Churchill's niece, Clarissa Churchill, now 34. The changeover in leadership brought only a mild reaction among rank-and-file Londoners, who got the news largely through grapevine system stemming or- ginally from BBC newscasts.

He has held the seat ever since, the last 13 years heir apparent. as Churchill's Though he had waited patiently for years for the old man to step aside, Eden is younger than any prime minister since Stanley Baldwin first took office in 1923 at 56. The 80-year-old Churchill, meanwhile, made ready to move from the Trime Minister's residence af No. 10 Downing St. to his country home in Kent, Chartwell. He wil leave Tuesday for a vacation in Sicily, his first long holiday in 18 months. Good Old Winnie Loyal Britons, paced Downing Street until late last night, cheering for the idolized old warrior The "good old Winnie" shout was heard again and again, and the serenade: "For He's a Jolly Gooc Fellow." At 8:45 p.m. he leaned from a window, waved his cigar anc beamed. But the clamor continued until he appeared. at a window again at 11:40. Wearing a red dressing gown, he smiled, gave his famous V sign, then waved his arms in good-humored dismissal The curtains closed and the lights snapped out. After his return from Sicily Churchill is. expected to remain in the House of Commons as an ordinary member. But his voice as an elder statesman still will be according deep respect in the Western world. In a message to his long-time associate, President El senhower said yesterday: "Out of your great experience your great wisdom and your grea courage, the free world yet has much to gain. And we know thai you will never be backward ir bringing those qualities forward when we appeal to you for help as all of us are bound to do." Offered Dukedom The New York Times, in a dls patch from London last night, sail 'ueen Elizabeth had offered Churchill a dukedom but that hi had refused so he could remait in the House of Commons. He pre vlously refused at earldom in 1945 because it too would have moved him. to the House of Lords. The change in government lead ership meant a continuance Britain's close association wit America, the policy Churchill am Eden have administered togcthc since .1951. Eden sees eye to eye with Washington on all major i sues except the Formosa crisis.

BRITAIN (Continued from Page 1) as devoted as Churchill was' to preserving the Anglo-American relationship, the foundation of free world alliances. But Churchill never let others forget he had an American mother Eden does not have this kind of emotional feeling toward the United states. Thus he may in the long run be somewhat more difficult for Eisenhower and Dulles to dea with than Churchill was.
