For Homage of People Body of Martyred President Lies In State In Nation Capitol WASHINGTON (UPI) — John Fitzgerald Kennedy was given to the American people Sunday for their final homage- To the muted cadence of muffled drums, the body of the martyred President was borne from the White House to the Capitol past 300,000 solemn Americans lining the procession route. There the flag-draped coffin lay as thousands filed by in tribute-The body will lie in state It waa Sen. Kennedy who broke the tragic news to his father — 20 houra after the tragedy. "He displayed tremendous courage," said Dr. Russell S. Boles Jr. of Boston, who was called in by the family In case the elder Kennedy’s condition worsened. within the closed casket until funeral services at noon Monday, followed by burial in Arlington National Cemetery on a hill overlooking the Potomac. Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy, a veiled madonna in black, personally relinquished her slain husband to the people. With live year-old Caroline at her side, she walked to the bier, knelt, and placed a reverent kiss on the casket. John F. Kennedy Jr., who will be three years old Monday, was not quite to self-disciplined as his mother and sister. When he tried to make friends with those standing nearby, a naval aide led him away. Mn. Kennedy’s farewell gesture climaxed an emotion-wracked ritual that began with the procession up the capital’s pennsylvania Avenue and ended with tributes in the domed rotunda from three dignitaries who served with the President White House. File Past Bier Then began the procession of the people past the bier. Men and women, young and old, they filed slowly by the casket —through the afternoon as a waning sun slanted its beams into the rotunda and on Into the night. While they had lined the route of the cortege, word came over transistor radios clutched by many that the accused assassin of the President, Lee Harvey Oswald, had in turn been shot and was dying in the same Dallas hospital as the President. The effect on the massed throng was almost disquieting. They listened to the almost hysterical tones of a broadcaster aa though he was telling an alien tale that had no connec tion with their presence at this occasion.

"When men speak of this sad hour in times to come they will ever recall how well her frail beauty matched in courage the stalwart warrior who was her husband." The cardinal, who married the President and Jacqueline and presided at the funeral last] summer of their infant son, Patrick, turned and wept as he left the altar after saying "Now in the inscrutable ways of God, he has been summoned to an eternal life, beyond all striving, where everywhere Is peace. We will miss him; he only waits for us in another place.. .,r WASHINGTON (UPI) — They were there to mourn . .. not to be vengeful- Most people waiting for the procession taking the body of the late President John F. Kennedy from the White House to the Capitol were aghast at news that Ids accused assassin had been shot. ‘‘Outrageous,” said Mrs- Samuel Lledman of Wheaton, Md., “we may never really know the truth now. I don’t understand the sloppy protection given him ” Criticism of the security arrangements was general among the mourners. "How stupid can the police In Dallas get," said a retired police officer who refused to give his name. “They knew there might be trouble, that’s why they provided an armed guard. But why didn’t they take him out secretly at 3 o’clock in the morning, Instead, of giving the killer a timetable!” "If this is true,” said Foster Terrell, Washington banker, “it is a very tragic thing- A tragedy on a tragedy ” * Mre- Gertrude Goodwin of Washington said she “didn’t think this could happen in America-” Mrs. Margaret Bryan, of Washington hoped that "Oswald would recover so he could die at the hands of the law.” Claude Stratton, an Alexandria, Va-, salesman, said 'It seems to me he should have had better protection. I would have liked to have seen him tried. I don’t approve of violence ” Miss A. Vondale Patterson, Morgan State College, Baltimore, student, said she thought ‘‘It was terrible-He hadn’t been tried yet. I think he should have a trial and be punished only lf convicted.” “I think the man should have been tried," said Eugene A- Neal, a government electronics worker. "It s almost unbelivable that he was shot, and not better protected" An anonymous gray-haired woman said “I’d like him to suffer a bit; this way is too easy on him ” Mrs. Tom Mallette of Annandale, Va., said ‘No one has the right to take the law in his own hands- May God have mercy on his soul.” And Paul Hoilman, Washington laboratory worker, said "He might not be the one. We can’t know without a trial- If he isn’t the one, we’d be hurting.’ * throw from the spot on Capitol Plaza where on Jan. 20, 1901, he roused a nation with his stirring inaugural address. The cortege route followed the same 1.8 miles of history he rode that day in triumph. Thousands line Route Washington police estimated that 300,000 people, many from miles away, stood IO and 15 deep along the route of the cortege on this chilly but brilliantly sunny November day. The last solemn journey from the White House to the Capitol took 45 emotional minutes. People began arriving at dawn to take up vigil before the White House. By midmorning, lines stretched all along the tree-lined route to tile Capitol. By I p.m. when the cortege left the executive mansion, the crowds had solidly packed the streets. The crowd was hushed as It stood waiting for the procession. The only sound came from chldren playing here and there. Then slowly heads turned up the street as, on an autumnal breeze, came the sound of muffled drums. Police March First In view were uniformed members of the Washington Police Department marching In melancholy cadence . Behind came the drummers — four snare drummers from each branch of the armed services, two bass drummers and a drum major. Behind a company of enlisted men from the Navy, the slain President’s service, and a special honor guard, came the horse drawn casket. It was riding on the same caisson that carried the body of the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The wind rippled the flag across the casket. Trailing the caisson was a black riderless horse, its stirrups inverted. The caisson was drawn by six gray horses. The three on the left were ridden, the three on the right were riderless. 'The tradition of the riderless horse stretches back centuries to a time when a fallen lead- WASIIINGTON (UFI) — Mrs. Kennedy and Atty.

"It was her wish," W h 11 e House News Secretary Pierre SalingeY said. The route ‘to be taken by the march is about a half-mtle.
