GKEKNWAM) ISTANBUL, Turkey, May 15. <m— Turkish newspapers reported loriay that President Tsmet Inonu's regime had been burled under a sensiUEona] landslide of opposition votes apparently sU-mrnftip from popular rc- zfnlment against the country's economic ills. Inonu's government maintained a tifiht silence over the apparent tin expected political upset. But unofficial returns Rave Celal Br.ynr's five-year-old Democrat Party upward of 300 out of 481 seats In the new parliament. As vote coimtinp progressed, one high member of Inonu's ruling People's Party said It was plain the Democrats were wlnnlne. Another People's Party leader estimated that the opposition Democrats had won 343 scats by mid-morning. Inonu, who had been President since 1938, had been exoecled to lead his party to victory by a narrow margin. But today the Democrats claimed that even nine cabinet ministers had gone down in defeat. Whatever the outcome. Turkey's foreign policy Is expected to remain the same, with the country standing solidly on her opposition to Russia and her allegiance to the West. Issues Arc Domestic International issues played no rart In the heated campaign. The Democrats' campaign was baser! chiefly on the government's failure to cure Turkey's economic ills, which have boosted living costs and caused general discontent. Turkey, along with Greece, was the first to benefit from the Truman doctrine proclaimed by America's President to halt the spread of Communism In Europe and the Middle East. If official returns hear out the indicated upset, the People's Party is out of power for the first time In the Republic's history. Inonu has been looked on as the political heir of the late President Kemal Ataturk. who overthrew the old sultanate (monarchy) and was unanimously elected president in 1923. He held the post until 1938, when Inonu succeeded him. . Among the ministers who have been reported, defeated were Vice Premier Erlm Nihat, Finance Minister Hushtu Ismail, Customs Minister Sherafettin F'azil. Communication Minister Kemal- Salir and Ag- liculture Minister Cavit Oral. Nearly 80 per cent of the voters turned out for the election. No cidents were reported at the polls. Although the campaign had been the bitterest in the republic's history. ' Newspapers said more women .Toted than ever before. MORE PUNCH FOR AIR FORCE—Seen ai Farmmgdalc. N.

Possible Lead Towards Treatment Of Influenza Described by Scientist Siamese Twins Succumb Mtet Operation to S*Y*r Connecting Flesh EDMONTON, *'AHa., May 15. (/P) —Canada's Siamese twins—Beverly and Brenda—died on the operating table yesterday, a few minutes after a 12-man surgical team had severed the flesh which linked (heir vital organs. The babies, who would have been •In months old on Wednesday, died after a long, delicate operation during which physicians cut through the wall of flesh connecting their abdomens. Dr. Early S. Allin, who headed the surgical team, said Beverly died nrft at 10:45 a.m.—one hour and three quarters after the operation started in the Royal Alexandria Hospital. Brenda succumbed 45 minutes lat«r. E. O. (Bud) Townsend, 23-year- old father of the twins, said after It w«s over: "We firmly believe the medical profession did everything that was humanly possible under the circumstances." By FItANK CARIiV (As-soclalcd I'rcss Science Writer) BALTIMORE, May 15. (,Vj _ A assibe Dad towards a drug lieat- nent for the most prevalent type f human influenza and a costly disease of chickens was described today to the Society of American Bacteriologists. A California .scientist reported that a substance derived from a microbe found In hay proved capable—in laboratory experiments—of destroying viruses of human influenza "A" and of Newcastle Disease, a serious mnlady of chickens. Influenza "A" is the commonest of all known 'flu' types. At present there is no specific drug treatment for it or any other type of 'flu'. Neither is there a drug weapon against Newcastle Disease once it develops. Dr. A. J. Salic of the University of California at Los Angeles emphasized that his experiments have been limited to trials on viruses of both diseases purposely made to grow in hatching hen's eggs. There have been no experiments so far on virus-Infected animals— a necessary preliminary to any thought of human application in the case of influenza. But. Dr. Salle said the work constituted a forward step In that it marked the first time that any substance hart been able to destroy viruses of these types in a developing chick embryo without killing the embryo itself. Other scientists at the golden Jubilee meeting of the bacteriologists said the work had this further significance: Up to now, germs of the "virus" clause have proved virtually Invlu- nerable to all drugs—even the wonder drugs like penicillin. A few of the largest-sized viruses —such as the one that causes so- called "parrot fever" — can be knocked off. But scientists haven't gotten to first base in finding drugs agahist medium-sized viruses, like that of 'flu.' or against real tiny viruses like those that cause such great plagues as infantile paralysis.

The substance used in the tests Is called "subtilln." H is an extract of a particular strain of "bacillus stibfilis"—a microbe that ts found In hay.

Before his scheme wa.s squelched, however, the prisoner managed to smuggle some spools of his wire rc- conlings out of the institution. This story was disclosed by Jim Bormann, news director of radio station WMT, Cedar Rapids, in a copyrighted broadcast. Appolnlmen' Kept Borman said he came into possession of the recordings by keeping an appointment at the Chicago airport with an intermediary of the prisoner. Bormann said he identified himself "by a prearranged set of words" to get the spools. The prisoner who Indulged In the electric eavesdropping. Bormann said, was I'ete Hellyer. 47, of Waterloo, la. He said Hellyer was sentenced 19 years ago for a sex crime. Bormann related that Hellyer had help from other prisoners in his activities and that one of them planted the microphone which picked up the paro|e board's interviews with prisoners seeking clemency. In Charfe of Radio Hellyer was In charge of the handled the public address system which fed standard broadcasts to all parts of the prison. Bormann said Hellyer had been making the recordings for months He said the wire spools were smuggled out hidden In elaborate hand-tooled leather bags which Hellyer made it: prison and mailed Lo persons outside the walls. "The hidden mike," Bormann said, "was so sensitive it picked up the crackle of paper on the table, the shuffling of fet. the whisjierecl conversations between parole board members . . . even the breathing of parole officials."
