Police said Fabian signed a statement yesterday in which he admitted crashing the girl's heart against some rocks in a vacant lot near the Cicero-Chicago border while playing airplane swing. He said it was an accident. In the game, he took the girl's ankle and wrists In his hands and swung her around in a circle. He denied »ny sex motive in the slaying. "On the last swing, her head hit the fireplace where the bums cook their food," his statement said.

Douglas should resign. If doesn't, Woodruff said in a statement yesterday. President Truman should request his resignation. The congressman accused Douglas of words and acts which, he said, give "aid a'nd comfort to the foes of the United States and democracy." Woodruff pegged his attack to Interviews given by the jurist since his return from a mountain climbing expedition In Asia. He said: "Mr. Douglas 1 latest outburst—his statement In San Francisco that the United states should recognize Red China—is merely the latest demonstration of a code of conduct that is highly peculiar, to say the least, in a Supreme Court justice." Douglas told newsmen on the west coast that U.S. recognition of the Chinese Communist regime would serve to bring the Chinese "closer to the free world and thus weaken the ties they now have with Russia. "This is like saying that black is white," Woodruff said. "No man who Indulges In such incredibly warped reasoning Is nuallfied to sit on the Supreme Court." Some Republicans have viewed Douglas statement as a possible sigi that the administration may be softening I is attitude toward the Chinese Reds. Douglas Insisted, however, that the idea was entirely his. own. An! Senator Connally (D-Tex), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, objected strenuously when Senator Welker (R-Ida) In seeking to put the story of the San Francisco interview into the congressional record, referred to Dougas an "an administration spokesman."
