Sir Winston calls it quits as House member
LONDON (UPI) - A grateful
Britain regretfully accepted today
the reluctant decision by Sir Win
ston Churchill to call it quits in
the House of Commons after 60
The former prime minister, 88,
plagued by old age and an in
jured leg, announced Wednesday
night he would not be a parlia
mentary candidate in the next
election. The sudden announce
ment virtually closed the pages
of a remarkable career that
spanned two world wars and
countless personal adventures.
Sir Winston, now confined much
of the time to a wheel chair, said
his reason for quitting politics
was his game leg, which prevent
ed him from getting to Commons
"as I would wish."
British newspapers generally
agreed that Churchill's retirement
from Commons will end one of
the greatest British parliamentary
careers of all time.
The Daily Mail called Sir Win
ston "the supreme member of the
House of Commons."
"No one living has served the
House of Commons for anything
resembling such a period and few
have served it with so deep a
respect," said the Daily Tele
graph. "He is, as he said him
self, 'A child of the House of
Commons.' "
The Daily Express said the
House of Commons owes Us pres
tige and authority among demo
cratic assemblies "above all to
the man who filled it with the
(lame of his inspiration and the
majesty of his eloquence."
There was immediate specula
tion that Queen Elizabeth now
would offer a dukedom to Church
illa hope she is known to
Whether Sir Winston would ac
cept a title is not known. He de
clined an earldom in 1955 when
he stepped down as prime minis
ter, the post in which he achieved
his greatest glory during World
War II. Ho said he preferred to
remain in Commons rather than
move to the House of Lords.
Some observers believed Church
ill might accept a title now that
he has decided to leave the House
of Commons, which he dominated
for many years. H comes from a
ducal family.
In a letter to the chairman of
the Woodford Conservative Party
Association, Churchill said he
would not be a candidate in the
next elections. The elections must
be held sometime within the next
18 months.
"I need not tell you with what
sadness I feel constrained to take
this step," he wrote the chair
man, Mrs. Doris Moss. Woodford
is Churchill's constituency.
Sir Winston said a leg broken
in an accident last June made it
I impossible to carry on.

The corner location will be oc

Commissioners set wheels
in motion for resumption
of Bend paving projects
By Gerald Drapeau
Bulletin Staff Writer
Bend city commissioners last
night gave the signal to go ahead
with resumption of some long-delayed
paving projects in tho city.
Cautious about street improve
ment programs since the unfavor
able Third Street appeal, the
board nevertheless decided that
paving of certain streets is vital
to the flow of traffic.
First paving project will be on
a three-block portion of W. 11th
Street between Newport and
programs set
for next week
The Bend Public Schools will
hold annual beginners' day pro
grams next week. Programs will
be held Monday at LaPine, Tues
day at Young, Wednesday at Ken
wood and Kingston, Thursday at
Allen and Marshall and Friday
at Reid-Thompson and Yew Lane.
Registration will start at 1:15
each afternoon, with a program
to follow at 1:30.
Enrollment for beginners' day
has been slow this year, accord
ing to A. W. Nelson, assistant sup
erintendent. He urged parents to
sign up their beginning pupils at
the school nearest their home, if
they have not already received
an invitation. To enter school in
the fall, children must be six
years old on or before Nov. 15,
Primary teachers in each build
ing are completing preparations
for entertaining both the children
and their mothers. For the moth
ers, talks will be given by repre
sentatives of the health depart
ment, school administration and
parent teacher organizations.
The following teachers are be

The property, owned by the

the First National Bank of Ore
gon. Neal Setich, in charge of the
bank's construction and mainten
ance department, was in Bend
this week to confer with the arch
itect. There are no plans at present
for removal of two buildings fac
ing Franklin Avenue, at the south
west corner of the property. Both
are unoccupied at present, ex
cept for storage, and the bank
has made no announcement of
future tenants. Utilization of that
space in the new construction
project was at one time consid
ered. To Extend East
The Coasl-to-Coast Store will
extend east to the two buildings
facing Franklin, the architect
said. The Montgomery-Ward store
will extend to the alley. There
will be no access doors joining
the quarters of the two tenants.
The lease on the corner lot has
been relinquished by a major gas
oline company, and this develop

the bank's negotiations with the
new tenant
The budget for the enlarged
project has not been completed,

alone, was to run between $30,

paving operations are E. Seward,
Sixth to Eighth: E. Kearney, Fifth
to Sixth; E. Lafayette, Seventh to
Tenth, and an alley between
blocks 21 and 38 in the Wiestoria
About ten affected property
owners, who will have to shoulder
part of the financial paving costs
for W. 11th, appeared by commis
sioner request at the regular
meeting. Most appeared to favor
the project. Opinions of other
property owners, stated in letters
sent the city, wore about 50-50 in
approving or disapproving. 1
The paving ot W. lllh will cost
an estimnted $13,664.94. Of this
amount, the city will pay about 21
per cent. The remainder will be
shared on a 50-50 basis by abut
ting property owners and those
living In an adjacent district. As
sessments for Improvements on
E. Third, last year, were con
tested In circuit court by properly
owners because they were made
to assume all of the costs.
Not Formulated
An exacting street improvement
policy has not yet been formula
ted, but the fact that dirt street
maintenance Is so costly to the
city demands the formulation of
one soon. Maintaining dirt streets
in 1962 cost the city $17,038.33;
paved streets only $16,542.02.
