Thai Students Demand Execution of Ex-Ruler (BANGKOK (AP) r- Oustec military dictator .Thanom Kitt kachorn slipped back into Thai land Friday and the governmen put him under house arrest. Leaders of the politically pow erful student movement de- manded that the 65-year-olc former field marshal be put or trial for the death of 72 civilians during the student-led uprising in October 1973 that overthrew his military government ant sent Thanom into exile.

Thanom returned at a time that his successor as premier, Sanya Thamassat, was out of Bangkok and the commander of the armed forces was in the Philippines on a tour of South- east Asia.
