MARSHALL New York Herald Tribune News Service WASHINGTON Well befon the trial of Adolf Eichmann gets underway in Jerusalem th jury of public opinion already has the case Eichmann the evil genius o the Hitler abattoir is guilty o genocide of mass torture and of other unspeakable crimes against the human race Every literate person should recoil in horror at the enormity arid bestiality of his performance without waiting for him to stand in the dock There in his cell sits Moloch in the form of a man He wil have his day in court and i will last at least four months But the judgment is already in He is convicted THE GUILT of Eichmann is the No 1 theme in the shocker literature of today All the syndicates are vying to circu late information which exposes and condemns him Never prior to trial have so many books been written clearly to estab lish the guilt of a friend or arch criminal By now he is more heavily indicted and damned in print than the whole mad pack which was hanged

Everett Scott 26 President vows nation wont stand idle during showdown By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Laotian government Fri day charged six new Commu nist North Vietnamese battalions have invaded Laos The charge came on the heels of President Kennedys appeal Thursday night to Soviet Pre mier Khrushchev for a ful solution of the crisis inthe Southeast Asian kingdom where Communist backed rebels are

celebrating Friday mostly unaware of Pres dent Kennedys warning that he Communist menace to their country is critical Thursday was a day of pa rades foot racing dancing movies and moonlight swim ming in celebration of the llth birthday of the royal Laotian army PERHAPS NOT more than 100 persons in the entire country knew that Kennedy had pro claimed to the American people and the world the growing con cern over communist military advanced in Laos It was am Friday here when Kennedy concluded his serious talk to Americans in a TV appearance from the White House But nobody here knew anything about it continued The U S Embassy in Vientiane announced 15 heli copters from the U S 7th Fleet arrived in neighboring Thailand en route to the American aid mission supporting the royal Laotian army The Laotian government bat tered without respite since March 7 by the Sovietsupplied Pathet Lao rebels charged that three Red North Vietnamese battalions have been thrown in to an assault on Kam Keut in the narrow central section of Laos about midway between Thailand and North Viet Nam Similar invasioncharges have been made repeatedly in the past but the government ha said in his favor which lack by no means proves prejudice So when the cynics or the sticklers for legal niceties raise the pettish question What did anyone have to gain through the abduction and trial of Eichmann they already have their answer Society is being informed about a limitless evil which it little understood HAD AN avenger tracked down Eichmann in Argentina and put a bullet through his heart that would have been the simplest way to dispose of him The story might have made a 24hour sensation in he daily press public intcrcsl would have flitted immediately back to the peewec atrocities in the Congo or the race to put a mai into space and not one author or publisher anywhere in the world would havedevoted time and money to developing in depth the story of the Eichmann crimes In all that is written aboul it the accent is on the per sistcnce of the chase and the audacity of the abduction What will be Eichmanns dc fense What the punishment APART FROM these two questions and the answers the trial promises little by way of suspense Yet with relation to them it seems almost pre postcrous to suggest that any real surprises arc in store Eichmanns conduct while in prison his own writings and the pleadings years ago of his henchman the masskillers un der his direction portend the line of the defense He was just a simple soldier under orders PROBABLY HALF the people n this administrative capital drank
