HOMES FLOODED ISTANBUL. Turkey i AP i More than 600 homes and 40 Jartorics were flooded Sunday when heavy rains overflowed a darn outside Istanbul, enctilfmg an industrial centre. rains slacken HUACCOTO, Peru (Reuter) Torrential floodwaters that burst through a giant natural dam obliterating 20 abandoned villages near here were beginning to slacken early today, officials said. They reported the worst of the crisis is over and estimated that Sunday's torrent has dropped by about half. There was no report of any casualties after thousands of villagers were evacuated from the danger area Sunday and lined hilltops to watch the flood. But a few dozen families were reported to have refused to leave their homes. Roads and bridges were de- stroyed and wide areas of rich farmland were covered with water, mud and rubble as the waters of the Mantaro River burst through the breach. First estimates put the damage at 86 million. The dam was formed on April 25 when two mountain tops crashed into the fast- flowing river, either because of heavy rains or earth tremors. LAKE FORMED The official death toll in the April disaster was 451. Behind the 850-foot-high dam. an 18- mile-long lake built up. The officials said a third of the water in the lake poured out in 24 hours after suddenly gathering momentum Saturday. There were fears that out- breaks of typhoid and other diseases reported in the last few days might spread, fed by hundreds of human and animal corpses rotting for weeks in the giant artificial lake. Last week the waters came within inches of the crest of the dam. Frogmen blasted a breach to let the waters out slowly, and for six days the plan worked. Neither the Peruvian experts here nor their West German and Japanese advisers could explain why the waters suddenly began rushing through with tre- mendous momentum, widening the breach. Since then, the level of the lake has dropped 178 feet and officials believe the danger is past and the waters will drain at a slower pace. LONDON (AP) The world's industrial countries must hammer out a common policy to deal with the aftermath of the oil crisis or risk a big drop in trade that might damage already precarious economies, the National Institute of Eco- nomic and Social Research warned today. Britain, it stressed, faces a major slump next year unless the Labor government takes quick action with a reflationary budget this fall to slow down the slide. Without such moves, the independent institute said, Britain's unemployment will likely increase to as high as 800.000 within 18 months from 550.000. prices will go up by 17 per cent this year and factory production will fall. The institute maintained in its quarterly review published today that" the problem is worldwide because industrial countries have failed to cope with the crisis touched off by oil price increases in the last eight months. It urged industrial countries to reach agreement with oil exporting countries to peg oil prices at a reasonable level and to make big increases in aid to developing countries hurt by the crisis. This" it said, will offset the drop in the real value of aid, thus helping the developing countries, pay their oil bills and prevent them from having to cancel export orders that will cut world trade more than it already has been. Without an agreement with the oil-producing states, it warned, these countries may believe that oil in the ground is their best investment. It added that this may mean more cuts in oil supplies. The institute's conclusions about Britain's economic prospects undercut government attempts in the last few weeks to calm fears that a slump is coming. The review stressed that the most disturbing trend in Britain now is the accelerating rate of inflation. It is now running at about 11 per cent a year. "We are drifting into a world in which prices double almost every five years." it" noted. GOVERNOR BANS Ms CONCORD. N.H. "The practice of using Ms in- stead of Miss or Mrs. is to be discontinued immediately." said a recent memo to state offices on behalf of Gov. Mcldrim Thomson.
