    NEWSPAPERS AROUND EUROPE TODAY (SATURDAY) GAVE FIRST-PAGE PROMINENCE TO THE GRAVE CONDITION OF SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL.

    IN FRANCE, AMONG THE BANNER HEADLINES WAS CHURCHILL IN COMA, DISTRESS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. THE RIGHT-WING NEWSPAPER I'AURORE DEVOTED BOTH FRONT AND BACK PAGES TO PHOTOGRAPHS OF SIR WINSTON. THE COMMUNIST DAILY PAPER, I'HUMANITE CARRIED THE NEWS IN A FRONT-PAGE BOX WITH PHOTOGRAPH AND A REPORT.

    IN NICE ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA WHERE SIR WINSTON SPENT MANY HOLIDAYS, THE LOCAL DAILY NEWSPAPER, NICE-MATIN GAVE TOP PLAY TO THE STORY. OUR CAMERAMAN REPORTED BRISK SALES OF THE PAPER OVER THE NEWS.

    IN BONN, WEST GERMANY, THE FORMER CHANCELLOR, DR. KONRAD ADENAUER, SAID HE REGARDED SIR WINSTON AS A VERY GREAT HUMAN AND POLITICAL PERSONALITY. DR. ADENAUER IS SIR WINSTON'S JUNIOR BY ONLY JUST OVER A YEAR. NEWSPAPERS THERE TOO SPLASHED THE NEWS OVER THE MAIN PAGES, AND CALLED HIM ENGLAND'S GRAND OLD MAN.

    IN HOLLAND, WHERE THE NEWS FROM LONDON DOMINATES THE FRONT-PAGES, THE PRIME MINISTER SAID THE DUTCH PEOPLE REGARDED SIR WINSTON AS ONE OF THEM.
