Teen-Aged Drifter Charged n Slaying of Career Girls NEW YORK (AP)-A pokerfaced, teen-aged drifter was charged Saturday with the baffling slayings of Manhattan career girls Janice Wylie and Emily Hoffert. Police arrested him after he allegedly had struck twice again, but was chased from the last, living victim. George Whltmore Jr., 19, a Negro who dropped out of school after the eighth grade, admitted all the charges in an oral statement, detectives said In court, however, his court* appointed lawyer asserted: ^Thoe statement! and con- lessions ware made under duress and 'Stress and he now recants all toe confessions he made." 'Whitmore, displaying no emotion, was ordered held without bafl for arraignment in the double murder. Miss Wylie, 21, daughter of writer and television producer Max Wylie and niece of author Philip Wylie, and Mas Hoffert, 23, daughter of Dr. Henry Hoffert of Minneapolis, were found stabbed and beaten to death last Aug. 28 Jn their apartment Each bad been slashed repeatedly, even after death, and their bodies lay facing each other, tied together, Miss Wylie nude and Miss Hoffert fully clothed There bad been no apparent sexual attack and nothing was known to be missing AT GENERAL ASSEMBLY Presbyterians Vote To End Segregation MONTREAT, N. C. (AP) The Southern Presbyterian Church's General Assembly took a major step in the field of race relations Saturday when it voted to help its church units eliminate segregation. The assembly adopted by a 231-150 vote a motion by Dr. A. J. Kissling of Jacksonville, Fla., proposing that the church's Board of Christian Education provide information and counsel to ministers and congregations on how to contribute to the elimination of segregation and racial discrimination, not only in the church but In the nation. Dr. Kissling, in offering the motion, said his fellow commis- sioners (delegates) would leave the assembly with "a heavy heart" if cries for action in the field of civil rights went unheeded. The motion, noting the necessity for action "in this tune of national and world emergency," also authorized mobilization of the resources of the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. (Southern) to "give more practical assistance to our ministers who are in distress because of their witness against racial injustices in the church and society." Dr. Kissling's motion was adopted as a substitute for a proposal to form an emergency committee on religion and race. Dr. William McCorkle of Bristol, Tenn., outgoing moderator, appealed for a spirit of unity and said the church should take the lead in saying "let's be more Christian together." The assembly also adopted a pastoral letter to church units on race relations and urged local congregations to read U "souJ-searcbingly and for a vet- diet." The commissioners decided against sanding a representative to the Church Assembly for Civil Rights beginning in Washington, D. C., Tuesday, The com' mission on religion and race oi the National Council of Church es will sponsor the assembly. IN THE SERVICE Warren J.
