    IN BRITAIN, THE MANHUNT FOR THE LAST OF THREE MEN WANTED FOR QUESTIONING IN CONNECTION WITH THE TRIPLE POLICE SLAYING SWITCHED TODAY (THURSDAY) TO EPPING FOREST, A 6,000-ACRE WOODLAND AND FORMER ROYAL HUNTING GROUND NEAR LONDON.

    500 POLICE SOME ARMED, AND WITH TRACKER DOGS SCOURED THE FOREST BUT FOUND NO TRACE OF THE MAN THEY WERE LOOKING FOR - 30-YEAR-OLD HARRY ROBERTS WHO WAS BORN NEAR THE FOREST. OTHER POLICE DETACHMENTS SEARCHED CARS AND TAXIS AT THE WEST LONDON AIR TERMINAL. THE POLICE WARNED THAT ROBERTS MIGHT BE CARRYING THREE GUNS. THE HUNT IS A NATIONWIDE ONE.

    MEANWHILE, THE SECOND MAN ARRESTED IN GLASGOW YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) WAS CHARGED WITH THE NUMBER OF THE THREE (ARMED DETECTIVES LAST FRIDAY. HE IS JOHN DUDDY, AGED 37. THE DETECTIVES WERE SHOT DOWN IN A LONDON SUBURBAN STREET WHILE APPROACHING A CAR.

    A FUND FOR THE DEPENDANTS OF THE MURDERED POLICEMEN TODAY REACHED GBP7,000. ANOTHER TRUST FUND AT THE HOME OFFICE HAS RECEIVED MORE THAN GBP10,000 IN TWO DAYS, ADDING TO THE GBP100,000 ANONYMOUS GIFT ALREADY PRESENTED.

    THE POLICE AUTHORITIES ARE CONSIDERING A FULL SERVICE FUNERAL FOR THE THREE VICTIMS. IN 1959, ABOUT 1,000 POLICEMEN LINED THE FINAL STAGES OF THE FUNERAL ROUTE OF A SHOT DETECTIVE, AND THE CORTEGE WAS A MILE LONG.
