    Background: The bearer of one of the most famous names in British politics today (Friday) made his political debut in a by-election for the seat of Gorton, in Manchester, England. Winston Spenser Churchill, grandson of Sir Winston and son of author-journalist Randolph, is the 27-year-old Conservative candidate in the by-election.

    Mr. Churchill's name had kindled a certain amount of resentment among his political opponents, and is being gently exploited in Conservative party campaign material.

    Posters say "the name you know", and many of the newspaper and television reporters in Manchester admit they are there because of the name of Churchill.

    The by-election came about on the death of Mr. Konni Zilliacus, the former member who held a relatively powerful majority of 8,300 votes at the last general election.

    The Labour candidate in the by-election is Mr. Kenneth Marks, 47-year-old headmaster at a local school. Both men are basing her campaigns on an improved jobs and prices situation for the area.

    Mr. Churchill often starts his day's campaigning at seven in the morning, with house-to-house calls. He broadcasts from loudspeaker vans, addresses church hall meetings, and gives frequent press conferences.
