BOYS QUIZZED ABOUT KILLING "Gang of Young Hellions" Held After Death of Girl, 4. WINDSOR, Vt., (/P) -- Police Chief John Edmonds said Saturday a "gang o£ young hellions" would be questioned Jor information in connection with the slaying of 4 year old Beverly Ann Page of Claremont, N. H., whose battered body was found Friday night in a mill pond. Edmonds said residents of this Uittle town on the Connecticut river had told him of a group of boys "not much older" than Beverly Ann who practiced cruelties on younger children. One of their .customs, he said, was to hold 'others under water until they came up gasping. The chief did not identify the group further. Preliminary examination disclosed, States Attorney Albion Parker said, that the child met death by violence and that "there was an attempted criminal attack." Al Claremont, N. H., general hospital, about 10 miles away, nurses shielded the child's mother, who gave birth to a daughter only last Monday, from news of her only other daughter's fate. Beverly had been visiting her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Thibault, while her mother vvns in the hospital. When she .failed to come in from play for lunch Friday, Mrs. Thibault notified the police. Volunteers summoned by a riot L-all sounded by Chief Edmonds found her body caught in a small inlet of the pond. It would have Bone downstream, Edmonds said, if a rock had not snagged it.
