Conservative legislator Cyril Os borne told Parliament Thursday night there had been 50 murders since Dec. 1. 'There is mounting feeling in the country that the death penalty should apply to all people of sound mind who commit these awful murders," he declared. The Homicide Act of 1957 abol ished hanging for all but a few types of murder. Murder has reached such a peak that Scotland Yard has run out of murder squad investigators thev are all assigned to cases.

A dispatch from Vientiane by correspondent Jacques Hevard said Education Ministery Nhouy Abhay told a news conference the protests were designed to assure the Laotian people the pro-Western regime had friends abroad. "If SEATO really came in," said Nhouy Abhay, "There would bo international war and this country would be the battleground, Nobody really wants that." The government regularly reported the presence of a number of battalions and even regiments of North Vietnamese troops within Laos. Their presence never was confirmed by Western observers. It was remarked at the news conference that the big powers took the Laotian alarms seriously and considered the situation high ly dangerous, the Times said. "All that was done to resist foreign invasion," said Nhouy Ab hay. The Laotians made similar claims of a communist invasion in 1959 and got the issue before the U.N. Security Council.
