COURIER NEWS PAGE THRE1 Youth Admits Beating, Slashing Girl to Death DETROIT (AP) — An unemotional high school student told police today he fatally beat and slashed a 4-year-old girl, but he didn't know why he did it. Marion Jo Zobrovitz was found yesterday by three playmates in a garage behind her home, her body torn and bleeding. She died in a hospital after doctors fought 4 ! /2 hours to save her. Police Lt. Edward Jocques said 15-year-old Terrence De Moss told him he had struck the girl with a 2-by-4 beam, then slashed her. Jocques said the boy gave no reason for the attack. De Moss is a juvenile under Michigan law and cannot be charged with a major crime in Criminal Court unless Probate Court waives its jurisdcition. Mrs. Doris De Moss, his mother, told police that she knew her son was the murderer, but police arrived before She could call them.

July kitchen, where he tried to clean j Sep " t brown spots off his grey flannel Nov trousers. He told her that a girl had spilled something at school and he had gotten splashed. Later, she told police, he went to a show with her and his brother. When they got back home, she said, Terry grabbed their newspaper and began to read the story of the attack. May ... Mrs. De Moss said he told her July . he had been at school, but she threatened to call his teacher. It was then, Mrs. De Moss told police, that he broke down and said: "I don't know why I did it. Meanwhile, police, acting on a tip from a policeman neighbor, had already headed for the home. Police said Terry had been treated three times at the Wayne County Child Study Clinic and had been arrested once for breaking and entering. His mother told police he had suffered pneumonia when he was 5 and the result was abnormal height and weight. She said the pneumonia had led to what she described as "brain fever." Marion Jo was one of four children of Morris and Julie Zobro- vitz. Zobrovitz, a truck driver, hurried home at the telephone message from his wife: "Come on home—Marion's been hurt." He called his daughter "Cookie." "We moved to this address in January," he said, "because the house.we were living in had rats. With Cookie and the new baby coming on, we were afraid to stay —my God, I wish we had." Johnson Represents Mayor at Cotton Carnival City Attorney Elbert Johnson is representing Mayor E. R.

McClellan (D-Ark) said today legislation he sponsored last year has brought a 10 per cent increase in U. S. cotton exports. MrClellan referred to a law providing that surplus U. S. commodities could be sent abroad and soldi for local currencies. This local cur- j rency then is used by the government for its military and economic aid program abroad. In a review of operations under his legislation, McClellan said that about 50 million dollars worth of U. S. cotton had been sent abroad. "Friendly nations bought about 300,000 bales of cotton or roughly 10 per cent of the amount which had been exported the year previous," he said. "Inasmuch as the law specifically states that sales must be in addition to usual and normal mar- ketings, these 300,000 bales can be considered as net additions to our total exports." In many instances. McClellan said, foreign customers could not have bought U. S. cotton unless they had been permitted to use their local currency rather than dollars. "We have succeeded, to a certain extent, in moving more U. S. cotton into the export market and at the same time building up the military and economic strength of our al-j lies." he said. "The program has not cost one cent extra. The money to finance the program came from the total amount appropriated and xvas earmarked for this specific program."

The French also went ahead with preparations to airlift the approximately 1,300 wounded from Dien Bien Phu. The French high command said its representatives were expected to fly to Dien Bien Phu by helicopter tomorrow to arrange with the Vietminh for the evacuation. Vietminh Gen.
