Fyan afeEW YORK, April 18...W)—Moscow has announced, In the past half year, the deaths of 15 Russian generals and admirals—some of them rather young. The appearance of such obituaries so frequently In the Soviet press naturally arouses speculation in the west over the possibility of a new purge in the Soviet Union. However, there has been no hint in the advices which pass through Moscow censorship that a purge actually Ls under way. Even If the Soviet press has reported all the deaths of the top military brass, a rather high mortality rate Is indicated, particularly when a number of the officers were In their forties. Civilian Deaths Told The Russians also have reported the deaths of a considerable number of civilian, as \vell as military, officials. The latest obituary of this type published by the Soviet press was that of N. V. Egorov, 48-year- old official of the council of ministers, whose death was announced ted ay. Other high-ranking Soviet functionaries also have passed away recently. They include Peter Anurov. a counsellor first class in the Soviet Foreign Ministry. His age was not given in the March 5 death notice, but It said the death was "untimely." Another-.such was Anatoli Kopylov, minister of cinematography, who died'March 10. He was nder Pctukhov. deputy chief of the Communist Party Central Committee Organization Bureau, died April 13. His age was not given. Scientist Nikolai Luzin died suddenly March 3. He was once under lire on a charge of being servile to the ideas of western scientists. Last week the Berlin newspaper Tngesspiegel published a report that Maj. Gen. Pavel Kva-shnin, former railway chief in Germany, killed himself and his family when lie was caught trying to escape from Poland to Sweden. The newspaper gave directors of the Soviet-run rail system as Its source for the report. Communist officials denied It; western officials said they did not know. Purge In MH-TTiirHe* Russia's last big purge was In the mid-thirties, when a large number of generals and admirals were whisked off to firing squads, The supporters of Prime Minister Stalin managed by this to forestall an attempt, to seize the power from him >yit the purge wounds were a long flfie healing. The executioners were over-enthusiastic then, as even some Communist since have admitted. Trip purge of the thirties probably wonlc not be repeated in such a way, before the eyes of the world. If a new purge were under way. now, the chances are it would proceed slowly and quietly, without fuss or fanfare. Why might there be & purge to- day? Stalin is aging—possibly even ll. In the not distant future the mantle of power must be passed on. Aggressive, ruthless Geortjl Mal- enkov,-boss of the Communist Party's apparatus, is a likely bet. And being a seasoned opportunist, Mal- enkov might not hesitate to put out of the way anyone who might thwart him. There Is some thought that this was behind the recent flaying in the Soviet press of Andrei A. Andreyev, a member of the ruling Politburo. Andreyev publicly confessed he had erred in his direction of collective farms, but up to now apparently still has his job. Tiie politburo. there is good reason to believe, has been brought up to full strength with a few additional alternates for good measure. The impression Is given that there are now 17 on the politburo—13 members and four alternates. Tnis is a large number of alternates. It may be that some vacancies are expected. Revision Announced With regard to the situation of fhe top military brass, H is recalled that last spring the Soviet Union announced a far-reaching revision. It followed right after a shakeup in Ihe Soviet cabinet. Marshal Alexander M. Vastlevsky succeeded Marshal Nikolai A. Bul- anin as minister of armed forces. Then, two months ago, .Russia set IP a separate navy ministry in drive to build up her sea power. All .his suggests • the possibility of a house-cleaning in the Soviet armed 'orcea. The Russian leadership has taken pains to keep people from gossiping about what goes on in the armed forces. Recently Maj. Gen. D. KItaev warned all Russians against loose talk because foreign spies might be around — foreign pies who might even be dressed the. uniforms of Soviet officers.

Plastic Heart Valve Designed Substitutes Now Are Being Used In Dogs Successfully By Alton I,. RUknlee Associated Press Science Reporter ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., April 8. (/T) — plastic valves for bad learts were described by four Albany, N. V., medical college physiologists. Several dogs are living with artl- iclal valves in their hearts now, irs. Rehml Denton, Courtland Drown. Benedict Mastrianni and Inrolrt Wlggers told the Federation of American Societies for experimental biology. Within two years It may b« possible to put the plastic valves into human hearts, substituting them for living valves damaged by heart diseases, they said. Valves are Tlnj The valves are tiny, one-piece nffairs, with no moving parts. They are circular, and funnel-shaped on one end. Each is about half an inch wide at the funnel end, and a little more than half an inch long. They are sewed into the heart muscle, by Its movement, opens or closes the valve. In contraction, It pushes up against the valve so no blood backs through it. Resting, the heart muscle relaxes coming out of contact with the valve to let the heart chamber fill with blood. The operation placing the plastic valves In the heart now Is relatively safe, the scientists said. It has been tried on about 30 rtogs. and five of them are alive and well, and have been so for about six months. Imitate Faulty One* The valves can be designed to imitate the faulty valves of living heart: damaged, in any of several ways by disease, or by malformation before birth. This kind of knowledge may itself help save human lives. In rheumatic fever, greatest killer disease of '.hildhood, heart valves often are left with scars. Heart valves may be damaged .10 that they leak, or there may b* congenital malformations. Experiments with the plastic valves have been underway only about a year. More experience is needed Before the valves can be and American Heart Association. The federation, or six scientific societies, began a four-day convention today. More than 1,300 reports will be presented to some 3,000 biologists from throughout the nation. A potential new drug for tuberculosis was reported by P. A. Cajori. M. A. Hamilton, E. Urbanlch and T.
