Abstract Parity conservation in strong strange-particle producing interactions is not yet experimertally settled. A search is deseribed for evidence of parity nonconservation in K-He interactions. To search for such evidence the expectation value of the pseudoscalar P/sub LAMBDA / x sigma /sub LAMBDA / was measured. This quantity is directly obtained from the decay-pion angular distribution in the LAMBDA rest frame. The observed angular distribution is symmetric. An analysis of 485 LAMBDA /sup 0/ producing interactions gives sigma (P/sub LAMBDA / x sigma /sub LAMBDA /) = +0.04 plus or minus 0.08. Thus, no evidence was found for parity nonconservation in K-He/sup 4/ reactions. (auth)
