1 Thailand moves to the right tion after the overthrow of the military dictatorship, in January 1975, his party won the largest number of seats, but he could not maintain a majority and had to resign after eight days. on "close relations with the United States." A pre-World War II ambassador to the United States, Seni was prime minister for four and a half months shortly after the war. In the first elec BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) Two conservative parties have won a majority in the election of Thailand's second postdictatorship National Assembly. Observers attributed the swing to the right to dissatisfaction with former Prime Minister Kukrit Pramoj's failure to quell leftist violence and his decision to force the withdrawal of most U.S. troops from the country.

Kukrit, 65, lost his own seat in the assembly in the voting Sunday. It appeared that his older brother. Seni Pramoj, would be the next prime minister. Final returns gave Seni's right-of-center Democrat party 114 of the 279 assembly seats, a gain of 42. while the rightist, military-backed Thai Nation party was second with 56, double its previous holding.

There were strong indications that the two parties would form a coalition government. The other 63 seats will be divided among some of the other 36 parties. Left-wing groups lost heavily. Seni, 70, said he would assume the prime minister's post and seek a coalition with one or two other parties. He did not rule out new negotiations with the United States to increase the 270-man force of American military advisers that is to remain in the country after July, but he said it was a delicate issue.

Military leaders have been lobbying for a 4.000-man American force because of the Communist governments in neighboring Cambodia and Laos. Seni told reporters his priorities would be to reduce unemployment, help the farmers and restore law and order. He said his foreign policy would be based on neutrality but with emphasis i 4 Ax illMi 4 to Every Monday Night 5 Sihanouk says he quits 'forever' 3 to 0) FEATURING 3 LOBSTER TAILS GARDEN GREEN SALAD choice of our famous dressings CHOICE OF POTATO baked, hash browns or golden french fries HOMEMADE BREADS WISCONSIN GRADE A BUTTER OUR LOBSTER CREW WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH YOUR OWN PERSONAL BIB Votes on myriad issues due Presidential politics aside, Wisconsin voters will have hundreds of election races and public policies on the local level to decide when April election day arrives Tuesday. Referendum questions include school bond issues in many municipalities, but a number of other policy changes are also up for consideration. Voters will decide nonpartisan mayoral, supervisory, judicial, school board and other battles for a wide variety of municipal posts, while a special election will fill a vacant state Assembly seat.

One of the more heated mayoral races is at Kenosha where incumbent Wallace Burkee was defeated in the February primary and where two Common Council members, Paul Saftig, 49, and John Bilotti, 31, will meet Tuesday. A consultant's study recommended changes in the Kenosha Police Department, including replacement of Police Chief Robert Bosman, but Saftig has urged that Bosman be retained and the management study be scrapped. Bilotti, meanwhile, has endorsed the findings of the study. At Milwaukee, Mayor Henry Maier seeks a fifth term and is seen as a likely easy victor over Jan Olson, 31, a former high school teacher. Milwaukee County voters, meanwhile, will decide between two well-known county officials, Dist.

The Khmer Rouge Communists made Sihanouk their figurehead chief of state after they defeated the U.S.-backed Lon Nol government last spring. During a visit to North Korea last November, the prince told reporters his country was being ruled by a collective leadership of 10 officials of equal position. "It appears that the new regime is so confident that they don't need him any more," one Western diplomat commented after the broadcast. "At one time they were probably worried about his lingering support among the peasants." BANGKOK. Thailand (AP) Prince Norodom Sihanouk has resigned "forever" as Cambodia's chief of state, saying he was fulfilling an old vow.

In a recording broadcast today by the Communist government in Phnom Penh, the 53-year-old prince and former king said that following the 1970 coup which ousted him, he swore "that after I accompanied my countrymen to complete victory over U.S. imperialism and the traitorous clique, and after the opening of the new revolutionary era, I would retire completely and forever from the political scene because my role would logically then end."

Municipal officials and those who speak for them at the state Capitol fear that New York City's financial crisis and the general mood of the electorate spell bad news for the referendum, the only proposed constitutional change on Tuesday's ballot. "I have a very serious concern that the New York situation is going to reflect in the minds of the voters," Ed Johnson, one such individual, said. "It's going to be difficult for them to understand that we're not talking about the same kinds of things that have happened in New York." Johnson is director of the League of Wisconsin Municipalities. VOTE MADISON, Wis.

(AP) Should the tiny city of Augusta, population 1,200, be entitled to build a new fire house if its citizens approve the expenditure in a referendum? How about a city hall for Washburn? A library for Elkhorn? Civic projects of any sort for Prescott, Milton, Eau Claire, Peshtigo, Barron, Waukesha, Independence or Tomah? Such projects may not be on the drawing boards in any of these Wisconsin communities, but whether they can be built when needed, whether this year, in a decade or in 1996 may depend on the outcome of a referendum question on Wisconsin's April 6th primary ballot. The referendum will ask voters whether the state constitution should be amended to allow municipalities to have outstanding debt of up to 10 per cent of the equalized property value of the community.

The charges were made by French author Roger Peyrefitte, a self-proclaimed homosexual, in an article printed in the Italian weekly magazine "Tempo." Special prayers were said Sunday for the Pope in all Italian Roman Catholic churches on the request of the Italian bishops conference, and parish priests delivered sermons to defend the Pope against the allegations. Without mentioning Peyrefitte by name, the Pope told about 20,000 gathered Sunday in St. Peter's Square: "We know that our cardinal vicar and the Italian Bishops' conference have urged you to pray for our humble person, who has been made the target of scorn and horrible and slanderous insinuations by a certain press lacking dutiful regard of honesty and "We thank you all for these demonstrations of faithful piety and moral sensibility," the 78-year-old pontiff added as the crowd applauded and cheered. Police have seized the issue of "Tempo" carrying Peyrefitte's article on orders from a state attorney, and suit has been filed against the magazine editor on grounds he abused the honor of the Pope, a crime in Italy.
