But he yielded mainly, friends »*y, t« a growing awareness on ; life own part that for him time j and strength may be running out. i He 1* in his 81st year. He is an ! o!d man who has doddered, as old men wiU, on one day,, and risen to great heights of oratory and intellect on the next. Sometimes lately he has nodded his white-fringed bead in sudden sleep midway in meetings at the British Cabinet. Sometlmgc he has momentarily forgotten tl» names of world- famous men—men of power with whom he hM wined and dined and matched wlta acrox th« tebte in war? intimacy. "X am now nearlng the end of my journey," he Mid In tones tlng«d with regret in his 80th birthday speech last November. But in his" waning years he has also stirred the nation In ringing speeches that have again revealed the sweep of his mind and rallied Britain behind portentous policies. 'Never flinch, never weary, never despair," h« urged the nation last month.

Worried doctors hovered over him. They ordered Urn ' to be quiet, stay put and rest. Instead the old m»n insisted on ' helping to phrase a misleadlnit communique for reporters puzzling outside the house. Then, ns a friend left the sickroom to deliver the statement to newsmen, slip- pered feet echoed In the corridor. Churchill, only a few hours after his stroke, wa« up out of bed— and chasing his associate down n drafty hall. He wanted to make another change )n the communi- que. And he did. His love of words and lust for work-recharged his strength. Two years ago a second stroke paralyzed him and left him speechless.
