Abstract : Protons with energies of 141 and 154 MeV were scattered by a target containing liquid helium. The cross section was measured for incident protons not to leave the target within a cone (half-angle 6 degrees) in the forward direction. At an average proton energy of 147 MeV the cross section was 113.4=0.8 mb. This datum along with proton-helium differential cross section and polarization data at 147 MeV were analysed using the impulse approximation and yielded a value of the total neutron-helium cross section of 114.5=1.0 mb.
