DALLAS (AP) -President John F. Kennedy, thirty-sixth
President of The United States, was shot to death today by a hid-
den assassin armed with a high-powered rifle.
Kennedy, 46, lived about an hour after a sniper cut him
down as his limousine left downtown Dallas.
Automatically, the mantle of the presidency fell to Vice-
President Lyndon B. Johnson, a native Texan who had been rid-
ing two cars behind the chief executive.
Kennedy died at Parkland Hospital, where his bullet-pierc-
ed body had been taken in a frantic but futile effort to save his

life.
Lying wounded at the same hospital
was Gov. John Connally of Texas, who
was cut down by the same fusillade that
ended the life of the youngest man ever
elected to the presidency.{
Connally and his wife had been riding with the:
President and Mrs. Kennedy.
The first lady cradled her dying husband's
bloodsmeared head in her arms as the presidential
limousine raced to the hospital.
Connally slumped in his seat beside the Presi-
dent.
Police ordered an unprecedented dragnet of
the city, hunting for the assassin.
They believed the fatal shots were fired by a

Roman Catholic Church. He had been the first
Roman Catholic President in American history.
Even as two clergymen hovered over the fallen
President in the hospital emergency room, doctors
and nurses administered blood transfusions.
