    Background: LORD MORAN, SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL'S PERSONAL DOCTOR, VISITED THE AILING 90-YEAR-OLD STATESMAN THREE TIMES TODAY (WEDNESDAY), INCLUDING AN UNEXPECTED AFTERNOON CALL. AFTER TONIGHT'S VISIT, HE SAID SIR WINSTON'S CONDITION WAS AT A "VERY LOW EBB."
    THROUGHOUT THIS SIXTH DAY OF HIS BATTLE FOR LIFE, SIR WINSTON SLEPT PEACEFULLY. THE ONLY GOOD NEWS WAS THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE RESTLESS WHICH OVERTOOK HIM YESTERDAY. HOWEVER, TONIGHT'S BULLETIN SAID THE WEAKNESS OF HIS CIRCULATION WAS MORE MARKED.

    MEANWHILE, MEDICAL EXPERTS AGREED THE ILLNESS WAS TAKING A COURSE THAT COULD BE EXPECTED -- AND THERE WAS LITTLE HOPE OF RECOVERY.
