    THE CAMPAIGN, IN TURKEY, WHICH ENDS IN A GENERAL ELECTION UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF THE MILITARY JUNTA WHICH OVERTHREW THE MENDERES GOVERNMENT, HAS BEEN TAME, HERE, MR. INONU, LEADER OF THE REPUBLICAN PEOPLE'S PARTY (R.P.P.) IS SEEN IN TAKSIM SQUARE, ISTANBUL, AS HE MADE ONE OF HIS LAST ELECTION SPEECHES OCTOBER 12TH.

    THE FOUR PARTIES IN TURKEY ARE THE R.P.P. LED BY ISMET INONU, WHO IS HELD RESPONSIBLE IN CERTAIN QUARTERS IN TURKEY FOR THE COUP-D'ETAT AND THE SUBSEQUENT EXECUTION OF MR. MENDERES AND HIS TWO MINISTERS. THE REPUBLICAN PEASANTS AND NATIONAL PARTY (R.P.N.P.) LED BY MR. OSMAN BALUKBASHI; THE JUSTICE PARTY (J.P.) LED BY THE RETIRED GENERAL RAGIP GUMUSHPALA; AND THE NEW TURKEY PARTY, LED BY EXTEM ALICAN, MINISTER OF FINANCE IN THE FIRST GURSEL GOVERNMENT.

    THE OLDEST AND RICHEST PARTY IS THE RPP, ATATURK'S OLD PARTY WHICH SPONSORED THE REFORMS OF THE 1920's. ITS LEADER, INONU, IS THE MOST EMINENT MAN IN TURKEY, BUT ALSO A MOST CONTROVERSIAL FIGURE.

    IT IS FELT IS LITTLE CHANCE OF THIS 78 YRS OLD STATESMAN GIVING THE COUNTRY THE UNITY IT SO BADLY NEEDS.
